Hey, Sue! Happy Saturday to you!
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:07am Sue:

Why, thank you! Getting ready for work, slowly as usual. How's by you?
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:08am Joe:

Feelin' good...Bill Withers makin' me feel better!
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:09am Sue:

Me too, man! Funky sounds :)
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:10am Joe:

I figure if it's hard for us to get up, at least we can GET DOWN! :)
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:12am Sue:

hahaha! :) you said it
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:14am Joe:

And now a bit of mellow...
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:15am chris:

Hey Joe, Chris from Alabama. First time listenin
to your show. Really like the varied selection.
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:16am Joe:

Hey, Chris! Welcome to my radio family! Glad you're up early with me.
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:18am postmanpaul:

morn'n joe from a very summery brighton uk, almost finished walking the streets for money!
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:19am Denis:

Ahoy Joe. First time listener here also (from Hobart, Tasmania) although I've read some of your FMA features. Loving this selection too, so far.
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:20am Joe:

Ha, ha! Welcome, Postman Paul! We've got your weather here right now. Hey, Denis! Welcome from Tasmania! What's it like there?
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:24am Denis:

There's snow on Mount Wellington, and I couldn't be happier, hibernating and listening to WFMU...
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:25am Joe:

Excellent! Sunny in the UK, pouring rain here,and snowy in Tasmania. I can't believe this music is happening all of these places at once!
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:27am Denis:

Heh heh! Yeah, it's mind-boggling. I take it for granted sometimes.
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:29am Joshua K:

Sounds like House is on
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:30am Joe:

Something about being here at 6 in the mornin' makes this all the more amazing to me for some reason!
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:30am Joe:

Uh-oh...is this some kind of TV theme now, Joshua?
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:32am Joshua K:

They use an instrumental version of it for the intro theme
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:34am Joe:

Oops! I've never seen the show although I always liked Hugh Laurie in "Blackadder" and the sketch show with Stephen Fry.
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:44am Sue:

Were you asking about the Wendy Rene song? Are you talking about it being sampled by Wu Tang?
  Sat. 8/29/09 6:47am Joe:

Oh yeah!! No, the actual song was used in a movie over the closing credits, I think....
  Sat. 8/29/09 7:20am Joshua K:

Amazon.com has a set of bob dylan autographed harmonicas for $25,000 http://www.amazon.com/Dylan-Hand-Signed-Hohner-Marine-Harmonicas/dp/B0021VX990
  Sat. 8/29/09 7:22am Joe:

The upcoming Bob Dylan GPS system is probably the cheaper option! "Turn Riiiiiiight, babe..."
  Sat. 8/29/09 7:44am Denis:

Speaking of Dylan, if anyone's interested in hearing an operatic version of Blowing in the Wind, I heard a rendition on Radio National this morning, here: http://tr.im/xpGi
  Sat. 8/29/09 7:48am Joe:

I think that song's been done almost every way imaginable. Anybody know of a metal version? That's the only kind I haven't heard.
  Sat. 8/29/09 7:51am Denis:

Righto, I'll get to work on a metal version, pronto ;)
  Sat. 8/29/09 7:53am Joe:

Excellent! Thanks, Denis. Cookie monster vocals a plus.
  Sat. 8/29/09 7:57am Denis:

Haha! You got it.
  Sat. 8/29/09 8:16am dale:

just woke up and missed most of the show. must be the rain and the soothing sound of the sump pump in the basement. i have to listen to the archive to hear what the male nurse was all about.
  Sat. 8/29/09 8:18am Joe:

Welcome, Dale! This rain sure does make a person want to sleep in. Me, as well!
  Sat. 8/29/09 8:21am Jeff:

R.I.P. WBCN after 40 years of great tunes like that cut from the Boss they're off the air. At least WFMU is still going strong. Thanks for the great selection this morning, Joe.
  Sat. 8/29/09 8:25am Joe:

You bet, Jeff! Yes, WBCN was amazing. I hope someday their archives get released in some fashion or another. That Bruce session alone is great and they had so many people on over the years...
  Sat. 8/29/09 8:37am dale:

this Tony Hazzard is excellent...i'll have to investigate further. love the touch of bombast.
  Sat. 8/29/09 8:40am Joe:

I'm crazy about Tony Hazzard in general, but "Loudwater House" is good top-to-bottom. Overdue for reissue.
  Sat. 8/29/09 8:46am Jack:

Jeez, Joe, Graham Parker, Todd Rundgren, Bruce, Ronnie Lane, etc. You're starting to become my favorite 'FMU DJ!
Thanks for the music.
  Sat. 8/29/09 8:48am Joe:

Wow, Jack, thanks! I see I've been a bit boy-heavy this week...I'll try to get some more ladies on next week!
  Sat. 8/29/09 8:55am dale:

speaking of ronnie lane, have you ever heard johnny hallidays 'Riviere uvre Ton Lit'? unbelieveable songs and playing by marriot/lane on it.
  Sat. 8/29/09 8:58am dale:

you can start here and listen to the poster's other things
  Sun. 8/30/09 3:12am Viking Vin:

Thanx!!!! Cheers from Slovenia.... V
  Fri. 9/4/09 6:51pm Lenny:
