Listener comments!

  Sun. 5/16/10 3:25am Brian in UK:

Hello Joe, Back from Istanbul, yes you have to go. Sooner rather than later. Will send some detailed feedback later
  Sun. 5/16/10 3:27am Joe:

Sorry I'm not playing Turkish music instead of Italian by way of the U.K.! Thanks for checkin' in. Look forward to at least one good recommendation later.
  Sun. 5/16/10 3:51am Sue:

Hey, Joe! Good morning! How are you?
  Sun. 5/16/10 3:52am Joe:

Hey, Sue! How is you??
  Sun. 5/16/10 3:57am Sue:

I'm good. Got a hectic morning ahead of me, graduation stuff... what's new by you?
  Sun. 5/16/10 4:04am Joe:

You graduatin'? School of hard knocks?
  Sun. 5/16/10 4:07am Sue:

In a way... :) I gotta travel to Queens and I'm not exactly next door.
  Sun. 5/16/10 4:09am Joe:

Aren't you in Seattle?? No, wait--you moved, right?
  Sun. 5/16/10 4:11am Sue:

Wow, you certainly have a good memory. Yes, I moved back here. No more west coast for me, not for awhile anyway. At least I'm up early and able to catch your show again.
  Sun. 5/16/10 4:14am Joe:

I'm surprised! You should get some rest for your graduation, otherwise you'll be all stumbly on the platform. Are you going to paint something funny on your hat?
  Sun. 5/16/10 4:18am Sue:

Well, the thing is, before the ceremony, I'm also picking up a coworker in Summit, about an hour away, and I gotta be there by about 7:30. ugh... need coffee... and, yeah, I hadn't thought about painting something on my hat. Any suggestions?
  Sun. 5/16/10 4:20am Joe:

How about "Hire Me"?
  Sun. 5/16/10 4:23am Sue:

lol... that's a good one. i don't know if i have the guts to do that though
  Sun. 5/16/10 4:28am Sue:

i really like that When the World Turns song but i haven't heard it before. is it from something? i feel like i should know it.
  Sun. 5/16/10 4:29am Joe:

It DOES sound familiar....I
  Sun. 5/16/10 4:36am Joe:

Any ideas, Sue? I can't think of it, but it's back there in my brain...
  Sun. 5/16/10 4:48am Sue:

i was thinking that maybe i was confusing it with soap operas or something. the band name and song title sound like soap operas, don't they?
  Sun. 5/16/10 4:50am Joe:

Oh, yeah! "As the World Turns" was on for years. Too bad that wasn't the theme song!
  Sun. 5/16/10 5:13am Sue:

i was thinking From Here to Eternity also but that's a movie, oops
  Sun. 5/16/10 5:20am Joe:

Yeah, Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr on the beach!
  Sun. 5/16/10 5:28am Sue:

Is that a good movie?
  Sun. 5/16/10 5:28am Sue:

wow, that's awesome you're playing this
  Sun. 5/16/10 5:32am Joe:

Glad you're liking the show, Sue!
