  Thu. 12/17/09 6:09am Chuck:

  Thu. 12/17/09 6:10am Meghan:

Those damn kids.... messing with the pickles..... hehe
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:10am Dave B:

Probably the various boards of health.

welcome to Underwater Food Mart with Meghan
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:19am Meghan:

Morning Josh!
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:19am Chuck:

Now I've gotten a craving for a Philly cheese steak, with pickle, of course.... Is there cheese in the food mart today, Meghan?
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:23am Meghan:

I got coffee, yogurt and I already grabbed an egg and cheese sandwich due to my memory of the breakfast theme.... not being stuck without food and coffee again!
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:23am Dan:

good morning, Meghan
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:24am Meghan:

And a good morning to you as well Dan!
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:25am Dan:

My new year's resolution is to start listening to your show live.
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:27am Meghan:

I think that is a genius idea! hehe...
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:27am Chuck:

I Graham Parker's "3 Martini Lunch" on the menu, Meghan?
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:30am Meghan:

Nope.... it will fall under the liquor theme.....
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:32am Dan:

I know. There's no better way to start out my day than listening to your awesome awesome show.
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:32am Chuck:

Fits there as well... Shirley Temple's song answers my cheese question...
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:32am Meghan:

awwwww... you are too kind..... *blushes*
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:33am Meghan:

oh Chuck.... i gots the cheese!
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:36am Dave B:

@Dan - Chumby as an alarm clock guarantees I never miss this show!
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:38am Meghan:

Oh Dave.... btw.... I got some tunes for you... I need to upload it to your server.
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:39am Dan:

Thanks Dave B. I'll consider it. But for now I'll stick with the good old-fashioned alarm clock.
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:39am Dave B:

And I'll atest, soup IS good food. made a big vat of chicken noodle this week.
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:40am Dave B:

Meghan - upload away!
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:41am Chuck:

You remind me that I haven't made Pho Bo in a long time, Dave... Where to get star anise though?
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:43am Dave B:

Should be able to find star anise in Chinatown, if you have one in your town
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:45am Chuck:

Non-existant in my area, Dave... There used to be a small Thai/Vietnamese market in Poughkeepsie where I could get it... It went out of business though, very sad...
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:48am Dave B:

You could mail order it from Dean and Deluca!

  Thu. 12/17/09 6:50am Chuck:

Thanks, Dave! You can find anything on the internet these days... I have gotten stuff from D&D before... They tend to be a bit pricey though...
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:53am Chuck:

I already have all the other ingredients, I think... Oh, except for the rice noodles!
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:53am Parq:

Ah, I see I missed Tiger Lillies and two versions of Miss Otis. Oh well, at least I got here in time to catch Junk Food Junkie -- haven't heard that in decades.
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:54am Dave B:

D&D are pricey for sure. Here's another joint - worldspices.com

  Thu. 12/17/09 6:56am Chuck:

You are quick at this stuff, Dave! Thanks once again!
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:56am Meghan:

Hey there Parq.... well there is always the archives to catch up on the beginning....
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:57am Meghan:

There is a company called Penzy's as well... or something like that. They are catalog, but there is a store in Grand Central...
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:59am Chuck:

I'll look into them as well, Meg... It sucks that there are no good ethnic markets around where I live anymore...
  Thu. 12/17/09 6:59am Dave B:

penzy' is equally as good!

Too bad there aren't enough spice songs for a theme....
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:00am Parq:

And I haven't heard any of this other stuff before -- this is a great set!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:01am Dave B:

Rock n Roll McDonalds was OUTSTANDING!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:02am Toby Dammit:

Dang I already had breakfast and lunch and now I'm hungry again!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:02am Meghan:

wow, you haven't heard Wesley Willis... he's amazing. Each songs ends with an ad
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:02am Chuck:

Good... One of the online company's that I used to get stuff from, The C&C Company, went out of business as well...
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:04am Meghan:

Ha! Sorry Toby! There should be a warning with today's show....
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:04am Chuck:

Mmm... Beef lips in my hotdog... hehe...
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:07am Dave B:

chuck - chowhound.chow.com is a pretty good community for the epicurious.

(and I work at the parent company - so shameless plug!)
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:07am Toby Dammit:

Sittin' in Berlin emptying out the refrigerator! When does this show end!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:10am Chuck:

Not to worry about plugging it, Dave... I'll do business with anyone who's got the stuff I need for a reasonable price... I'll check them out!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:11am Dan:

Your theme next week will be a lack of theme.
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:14am Meghan:

Ha! Toby you got about 1 hour and 45 minutes.... call for delivery! Ahhh, yes Dan that is how I should say it!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:15am Chuck:

Or "Breaking Out of Themes", Meg... I know you want to do that anyway and just play whatever...
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:19am Meghan:

I sometimes find it harder to put together a show without that restriction. It's funny! I have a trouble picking out what I should play!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:19am Joshua K:

mmmm handburgers
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:21am Chuck:

I know! The impulse is just to play everything... But you can't because of the time restriction....
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:21am Dave B:

i will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:22am Chuck:

Glad you said it, Dave! Saves me the embarressment! HA!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:24am Meghan:

That and I come across stuff that I didn't know or never heard of doing it this way... so it's more wide!

I kept thinking of Whimpy too... but also the Clash going- cheeseboigah!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:25am Chuck:

Chips, chips, chips... No fries...
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:26am Meghan:

Coke... no Pepsi! or was it the other way around?
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:28am Chuck:

I don't remember! Jeez, you realize those skits were 30 years or so ago!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:29am Dan:

the other way around, I think.
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:30am Chuck:

Yay! Love Gang of Four!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:35am Chuck:

You missed "Cheeseburger in Paradise" by Jimmy Buffet...
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:36am Joshua K:

Are there any songs about tacos
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:39am Dave B:

Dick Dale has "Taco Wagon"
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:41am Parq:

Thank you! Jimmy Buffet irks the living daylights out of me, too.
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:41am Dave B:

and the Angry Samoans - "Tuna Taco"
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:41am Chuck:

I was goofing on you, Meg! I wouldn't play anything by Jimmy Buffet either...
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:43am Joshua K:

Theres a track like the breakfast one from that show: Ecc - the mighty hamburger
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:43am Meghan:

I didn't tell the story about me leaving the Pixies? Where a Jimmy Buffet concert was letting out? I thought I shared that story.... next break!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:44am Meghan:

Ha! Jeff just called me..... Dead Milkmen- Taco Land!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:47am Joshua K:

Hot Burrito #2 by Dinosaur Jr doesn't use the word burrito once in the lyrics
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:51am Chuck:

Pizza Hut isn't real pizza... It's gross!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:52am jeff p:

Dammit! I missed Pizza Rocket!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:57am Meghan:

Morning Jeff! sorry you missed Pizza Rocket!
  Thu. 12/17/09 7:59am jeff p:

i had a hard time thinking of stuff for this list. my brain was just mush....
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:00am Meghan:

Next one is yours Jeff.....
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:01am Chuck:

I had pizza for dinner last night... Too much work to do, too tired to cook...
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:02am Meghan:

Yeah i don't know when I would be able to come up and help Chuck.... Holidays and all.... after the new year perhaps? Is that too late?
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:05am jeff p:

I remember seeing these guys play this song on some late night tv show like "Fridays" or something
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:06am Chuck:

I should have all the big stuff done by then, provided I don't get completely burned out... I've got an abstract wood piece in 5 sections, 2 of which are 8 feet long, among other things... Whew! Thanks for letting me know. I'll give you an update after the holidays...
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:15am Toby Dammit:

Hey don't forget "Sandwich of Love" by The Mentors...
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:16am jeff p:

falafel is a great song!
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:16am Meghan:

Awww Toby! I don't have it! damn! i was looking for more sandwich songs.....
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:18am Derek in DC:

I remember seeing the Tubes on SCTV, lip synching while eating big handfuls of rice.
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:18am Toby Dammit:

Not sure if that would float past under the censor bridge anyway!
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:20am Chuck:

Have you solved the Falfel binder problem, Meghan?
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:21am jeff p:

Oh, I'LL SAY there's a problem with the south....
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:23am Dave B:

Solid Potato Salad - by the Ross Sisters?

How the heck did I forget to request THAT. The video is the best!

  Thu. 12/17/09 8:23am Meghan:

The joys of internet radio is there is no censor issues... woohoo!

Yeah Chuck.... i solved the problem. I go down to Ibby's, who have the best falafel in the area!
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:25am Chuck:

That's cheating! But, hey, if it's good, it's good...
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:28am Chuck:

Do they have the cucumber sauce too?
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:29am Toby Dammit:

Well if you the have time, you can get that Mentors song down from You Tube. It's well...special.
"The Mentors - Sandwich of Love (You Axed For It!)"
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:32am Meghan:

Actually.... cutting songs out of show now.... running out of time... *sigh*
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:33am Dave B:

Now I have a hankering for takoyaki! Might just need to swing down to Otafuku on East 9th Street for lunch!

  Thu. 12/17/09 8:33am Chuck:

Yeah, it's downright painful to omit things...
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:34am jeff p:

You can have a show after the "Dinner" and "Dessert" shows called "Leftovers" that has a bunch of stuff that you couldn't fit in to the breakfast/lunch/dinner shows
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:36am Meghan:

Oh i love it! Was planning a dinner and dessert one... but leftovers! Brilliant!
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:38am jeff p:

It's what I do, babe.
  Thu. 12/17/09 8:42am Chuck:
