Listener comments!

  Thu. 7/30/09 6:10am Chuck:

Guten Morgan!
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:11am Meghan:

Guten Morgan Chuck!
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:12am Chuck:

I was wondering if The Throwing Muses were from Boston?
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:13am Eric:

I'm going to school in Boston in the fall. This will pump me up!
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:13am Meghan:

ACTUALLY they aren't... they are from Rhode Island.... which is unfortunate
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:14am Meghan:

Morning Eric.... going to BU? or BC or one of the other million schools up there
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:16am Eric:

Yes, BU, for communications. It will be my first time on the east coast!
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:17am Meghan:

Let me guess.... Warren Towers! Or the old HoJo's in Kenmore! You'll have a blast no matter
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:17am Chuck:

OK, I just wasn't sure... Unfortunate for this show only, still a great group no matter where they're from...
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:19am Eric:

I'll actually have my own off-campus deal since I'll be a grad student--even more fun??
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:19am Chuck:

My buddy Tom, who still lives in Boston went to BU... Got his masters in art from there...
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:20am Meghan:

Oh nice! Sweet deal! Have a blast no matter... it's fun
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:23am Eric:

Thanks and thanks for the show--couldn't have been more appropriate for me.
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:27am Chuck:

Morning Jeff! Is the "woofer" in attendance? If so, "ARF", Bosco!
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:28am Meghan:

No Bosco today.... we were lugging in a lot of vinyl to the studio....
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:29am Chuck:

This song makes me feel like someone dropped some mushrooms in my coffee...
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:31am Meghan:

join the club.....I pre warned you all!
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:34am Chuck:

Of course, I have this song in my collection too... I feel sooo stoned now!
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:36am Eric:

If the Muses don't count, does that also rule out Belly?
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:37am Meghan:

hehe.... welcome to the 60's/70's set....
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:37am Meghan:

Well.... it doesn't! They got together in Boston... so they DO count... funny eh?
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:39am Chuck:

Cool! Where are you fitting Belly in?
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:42am Eric:

I'm betting they got bumped for the Breeders...if the Breeders count.
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:44am Chuck:

I'd say they do... Meghan, what do you think?
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:45am Meghan:

You shall all see......
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:47am Chuck:

Ah, now we get mysterious!
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:52am Meghan:

Not mysterious... I am just trying to see for the end... sorry for the delay, lots of cueing going on.... hehe
  Thu. 7/30/09 6:54am Chuck:

That can happen with a truck load of vinyl... Been there...
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:00am Meghan:

Yep, that set and the upcoming hardcore set both are like that....
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:04am Chuck:

Reminds me that it's been a long time since I've been to Boston to see Tom & Scott... I should plan a trip just so Scott can have fun dyeing my hair purple again...
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:05am Meghan:

You should go up there soon... She always gives you good new music too...
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:07am ?:

Fingers crossed for one of the many Juliana Hatfield-related projects. Were there a lot of instances of having to just pick just one out of a lot of related bands?
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:07am Chuck:

Yes, she does! She's the one who hooked us up with Le Tigre! I should have asked if she had any ideas for this show... Doubtless there are new Boston artists she knows of that the rest of country is, as yet unaware...
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:09am Eric:

Oops, question mark was me.
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:21am Chuck:

Memory check... Were The Dickies from Boston? I can't remember now... It's too early in the day...
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:22am Meghan:

I actually don't have any Blake Babies or Julianna Hatfield.... sorry! Not sure about the Dickies Chuck...
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:24am Chuck:

Had I known I'd have sent you some Julianna, got 'em...
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:25am Meghan:

Awww, well next time, i feel like I could totally do another show of this....
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:26am Chuck:

Gotta love a theme that keeps on giving!
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:32am Ken From Hyde Park:

I heard you announce a couple of requests from me. Thanks, but I don't remember sending requests this week. I was just upstairs making sandwiches for lunch.
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:32am David:

Don't forget the Dogmatics!
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:32am Chuck:

Make some noise kids!!!
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:37am Meghan:

Oh wow Ken.... must have been another Ken.... wonder which one...now i have to check....
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:46am Chuck:

Well, anyone that isn't awake now needs to be buried... Thanks for the "Wakey, wakey!" Jeff!
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:50am Meghan:

I got Dogzilla coming up... but no Dogmatics... I will keep an eye out for them. I am missing a bunch of Boston music, so now I will have a little more time for research. Keep them coming!
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:54am Jeff P:

meghan! tom lehrer! nice!
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:54am Eric:

Maybe some Galaxie 500? Well, in another more appropriate set, maybe.
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:56am jim:

anybody remember Officer May? that would take me back to the collegiate years....
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:56am Meghan:

Hey Jeff! Of course Tom Lehrer! Too fun! And dontcha worry Eric, I ALWAYS play Galaxy 500....
  Thu. 7/30/09 7:59am Meghan:

I don't remember that at all..... what time period Jim? I will have to look it up..
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:04am jim:

late nineties-early naughties. they were on Ace Fu I think.
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:04am Chuck:

Any versions of "Dirty Water" in the line up?
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:04am Meghan:

Hells no! The Standells were from CA!
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:05am jimbo:

HOLY SHIT Bim Skala Bim?!
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:07am David:

Link to legendary Kenmore Square music club/dive the Rat: http://www.geocities.com/uridfm/r/rat1.htm. There was a 2-LP set with Boston bands back in the 80s
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:07am Chuck:

I didn't imply the Standells! There are many versions of that song... Prehaps an actual Boston group did the song, which is about Boston... Also your mic is too low...
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:08am jim:

but what would Mr. Butch play?
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:08am David:

PS. Rat is long gone, of course
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:11am Chuck:

Meg, I can barely hear you over your field recording... Turn up please...
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:13am Meghan:

Ohhh sorry!
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:14am Chuck:

Now I don't even know what the "News of the Weird" story was.... Couldn't hear it..
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:15am Meghan:

awww damn! I even turned it down too! look it up! http://newsoftheweird.com/archive/index.html Last story!
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:16am jeff p:

Enema Man!
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:17am Meghan:

Exactly! Enemas of EVERYTHING!
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:18am Jeff P:

you're gonna have to face it - you're addicted to enemas.
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:21am Meghan:

Okay, Jeff and I are wondering if anyone remembers this song, if you didn't live in Boston....
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:22am Eric:

Does Mary Lou Lord still play the subway or did that end a long time ago?
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:22am Chuck:

Gotcha, I'll check it out later... Let's not get to fixated on bodily orifaces people... There's plenty of time left in the show...
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:23am Meghan:

I would have guessed it stopped, but it's been a while since i have rode the T
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:24am Eric:

Shoot. I think I missed out.
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:25am David:

Not sure about Mary Lou Lord. I used to see Mr. Airplane Man playing in Harvard Square about 8 or 9 years ago. Fun
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:26am Chuck:

Wow! I don't think I've ever heard this song and I'm LOVING it!
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:27am ?:

yeah, that's a good one
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:27am Meghan:

There was the crazy Jesus guy in the stop that transfered to the Red Line (Park maybe?) He had an amp and sang.... Also the creepy conductor on the Green Line.....

Yes Chuck, i LOVE the Cavedogs. We are now in all the stuff I listened to all the time
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:30am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

The Underwater Theme Park has quickly become one of my favorite shows on WFMU. Another great turn at the whel, Meghan!
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:30am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

wheel. d'oh.
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:31am Chuck:

Jeez, Meg! Why didn't you introduce me to these guys either? I feel left out now...
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:32am Meghan:

Awww Thanks Dum Dum! Sorry Chuck! consider yourself introduced!
  Thu. 7/30/09 8:36am Lou:

Awesome...haven't heard Gigolo Aunts in forever!
