Listener comments!

  Thu. 11/5/09 6:02am Chuck:

Morning! What in the world was going on there?
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:03am Joshua K:

Just some night people radio shuffleboard is all. The usual
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:03am Meghan:

Ha! Morning! Hard to explain... but a poor man's version of shuffleboard... I have been there... that last hour is hard, so you do what you can to keep going!
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:05am Chuck:

What do you use for puck? Bad CDs?
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:07am Meghan:

a dog's tennis ball... the pusher was a ping pong paddle.... and you had to stop the ball before it hits the console
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:09am Chuck:

Ha! A funny way to keep busy!
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:11am Meghan:

Yep! remember listening to Jess and me lose our minds around that time? It would have been a matter of time before we started to do the same.... The best part was Nachum coming in to see what was going on....
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:11am Joshua K:

They pretend they are somewhere for the last hour so this week they were on a cruise ship
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:13am Chuck:

Just don't have them start playing touch football!
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:15am Chuck:

Ah, Fats Waller! The originator of the phrase, "One never knows, do one?"...
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:21am Andy in Berlin:

I could see this one coming a mile a way. But I guess you had to do it.
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:26am Chuck:

Well, Willie wrote the song after all...
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:27am Andy in Berlin:

Whoa - it pays to listen live today! I'm honored to be of service, ma'am.
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:28am Joshua K:

This theme is insane in the membrane
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:29am Meghan:

hehe... see, it goes to show, you all are inspiration for the shows! the more input I get the better the show!
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:29am Chuck:

Folks are going mental with joy...
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:33am Andy in Berlin:

Any chance we'll be hearing Crazy Arms today?
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:34am Joshua K:

I like this set cause its extra funky
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:35am Meghan:

You know, I came across it and unfortunately didn't make the cut.... That is the hardest part- cutting songs out
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:37am Andy in Berlin:

Today is such an emotional roller coaster.
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:39am Meghan:

Just enjoy the ride- you know you will end up back at the beginning all safe and sound
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:46am Andy in Berlin:

Now that we've segued into Mad, I suppose Madness by Madness will pop up. But what about Fugs singing Alan Ginsberg's Howl?
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:50am Meghan:

oh it's fun to keep you all guessing.... and then i take a wrong turn....
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:58am Andy in Berlin:

well after the first two sets I was prepared to believe that you were going to make a differentiation between crazy and mad but then you threw in that Bowie song. And now you're back to pure crazy. So yes, I'm guessing, but so far no wrong turns.
  Thu. 11/5/09 6:59am Chuck:

Wow, Meg... I shouldn've sent you Pylon's original version of this song!
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:00am Meghan:

I got to say... i do like this version....
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:04am Chuck:

Humm... Chameleons a follow up to this?
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:06am Meghan:

/me smacks my head.... no! I am such an idiot!
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:08am Chuck:

Oh well... It's early yet. Did you just forget the song when making your playlist?
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:16am Meghan:

yes.... I am so forgetful as of late.... worked too many hours this past month. Now that is over with, hopefully my mind will come back to me....
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:16am Dirty Old Man:

That's how you started? What, no casting couch?
BTW, Dory Previn today??
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:18am Meghan:

Dory didn't make the cut..... But here's a set dedicated to you....
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:20am Dirty Old Man:

Bummer!
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:23am Chuck:

This could be revisited... There's still plenty of songs out there...
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:33am Joshua K:

Do the state songs by order they were added to the union
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:33am Dave B in NYC:

do the states by the order they joined the Union!
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:34am Joshua K:

Yeah what he said
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:34am Dave B in NYC:

MORNING! Joshua said it first! (hat tip!)
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:34am Joshua K:

You phrased it better though.
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:35am Meghan:

Great minds.... hehe...
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:40am Chuck:

I'm still looking at the laughing theme... How about Laugh Lines by the Cocteau Twins and Laughing at You by the Detroit Cobras?
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:40am jeff p:

looks like i made it for the rawk set!
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:42am Meghan:

Hells Yeah! Just in time!

and those are both good Chuck!
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:44am Joshua K:

I always think of this when its too late. Theres several black flag songs about being insane or crazy people.
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:44am Andy in Berlin:

How about Laugh Laugh by the Beau Brummels?
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:45am Meghan:

Joshua... think really hard about laugh songs.....

Oh, good one Andy...
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:47am Chuck:

Yeah, Andy's on the right track... Also, Laughin' and Clowin' by Sam Cooke and Don't Laugh by the Louvin Bros. are in my list...
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:48am The Clown:

Ha Ha!
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:49am Dave B in NYC:

oh - Laughing?

"Laughing Matter / Esperanza" by Fred Frith.
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:51am Andy in Berlin:

I emailed about this but since we're discussing it here, what about Elvis singing Are You Lonely Tonight where he just keeps laughing and can barely sing the sing.
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:51am Meghan:

gah.... clowns... so scary.... Oh, a good theme idea though....
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:52am Meghan:

Yep, that works... anything with laughter in it works...kinda like my bells...
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:53am Andy in Berlin:

...sing the SONG. Sorry.

P.S. Clowns is a whole topic in itself!
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:54am Chuck:

Laugh at Me by Ian Hunter and Honey I Laugh at You by the Sharks also come to mind...
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:56am Andy in Berlin:

If you're gonna be like that, then Laugh At Me by Sonny Bono.

P.S. If you're going to play Institutionalized then you have to play Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment.
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:59am Parq:

Ah, "Institutionalized". A great song, though Belinda Miller owns it after her marathon finale rendition a few years ago. For next week, Slim Gaillard's "Laughing In Rhythm", eh?
  Thu. 11/5/09 7:59am Joshua K:

Was there ever mention of a jail/prison theme?
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:00am Dave B in NYC:

"It Is To Laugh" by the Beau Hunks (even though its only a minute long)
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:00am jeff p:

the rawk version is almost always the correct choice!
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:02am Andy in Berlin:

Since you really stuck so closely to pure crazy, I think Madness as a theme is still on the table, no?
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:04am Meghan:

Great suggestions everyone! And now I am going to have to look up that version... Belinda as in Greasy Kids Stuff Belinda?

Yes, Madness is still on the table then! And yes there was a prison/jail idea... but I don't know if I had mentioned it on air or if it was at home....
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:06am Bad Ronald:

Love that Queen tune! Any chance you got the Dickies' "Mental Ward" or Ramones' "Psychotherapy" handy?
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:06am Dave B - NYC:

Back to the states - here's your playlist order:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_by_date_of_statehood

;-)
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:07am Meghan:

Hey there Bad Ronald..... I did have Ramones one... but went another direction... we are now realizing that the MAD theme is still open, so it may have to go in that one....
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:08am Meghan:

hehe.... thanks Dave!
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:09am Andy in Berlin:

You might have to do an all-Ramones set in the Mad one. Adding I Wanna Be Sedated.
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:09am Chuck:

This set is like listening to the Primitive Show!
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:11am Meghan:

Where is that PG? He showed up the one day you didn't!

Yeah, why does the Ramones have so many "mad" songs?
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:12am Chuck:

You've got me... I'll ask him tomorrow...
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:13am Bad Ronald:

Prolly has something to do with growing up in Queens!!!
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:14am jeff p:

eating refried beans
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:14am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

I've seen the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness.
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:15am Andy in Berlin:

Exactly! The Fugs singing Howl!
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:15am Chuck:

I'll go along with that, Mad Ronald! Everyone that I've met from that background aren't playing with a full deck!
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:17am Meghan:

ummm we all got a little crazy in us...
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:19am Chuck:

Of course! Why else would we be involved so deeply involved in music?
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:20am Mad Ronald:

Gulping down Thorazines!!
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:20am Parq:

<smiling>
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:21am Meghan:

not the one you were originally looking for, but i happen to have this in my personal collection... great suggestion!
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:24am Chuck:

Alway hilarious when they break out the Helium tank! HA!!
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:25am Andy in Berlin:

How about rock versions of tv and movie themes? Obvious choices would be Twilight Zone by the Ventures or the Dragnet by Art of Noise but my favorite is the Psycho Theme by The fibonaccis and Goldfinger by Magazine.
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:25am jeff p:

napoleon xiv! nice!
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:27am Chuck:

The Dickies doing "Gigantor" would fit in there as well, Andy...
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:28am Andy in Berlin:

Totally!
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:31am jeff p:

OMG I LOVE THIS SONG AND TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT IT!!!!!. I must be slipping. "Dearly beloved...."
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:33am Meghan:

I think that I make up for all that "why didn't you play __________" with this song... and if you aren't singing along and dancing... for shame
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:35am jeff p:

my boss just looked at me singing and dancing and said, "What the fuck are you doing?"
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:36am Meghan:

hehe... nice!
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:36am Dave B - NYC:

@Chuck - back in the early days of the Crumbsuckers, we used to do the "Inspector Gadget" theme. I have it somewhere, if a TV theme show comes up..
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:38am Chuck:

I think I've got a comp of cartoon themes done by rock bands in my collection... I forget what I've got since there's so much.... I'll look...
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:38am Dave B - NYC:

Actually, that shoulda been @Meghan.

Crazy....
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:40am Meghan:

hehe... i figured it out... I have a comp of Saturday morning cartoons as well....
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:41am Andy in Berlin:

I seem to remember somebody doing a version of the Perry Mason theme.
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:41am Dave B - NYC:

here's the Gadget Theme for you all, if youre interested:

  Thu. 11/5/09 8:49am Dave B - NYC:

  Thu. 11/5/09 8:50am Chuck:

Ah, the second cut from Sandinista! to make it to UWTP...
  Thu. 11/5/09 8:57am Parq:

Following Prince with a track that has both "Nicki" and "Corvette" in the name was a nice touch.
  Thu. 11/5/09 4:30pm PMD:

Oh how I miss the dead letter office (REM). I have to get that on CD (had it on tape)
