Listener comments!

  Thu. 9/2/10 6:01am Chuck:

Morning! Nice to have a working machine, eh?
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:01am Elwyn:

Hey everyone!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:02am Meghan:

Morning All! Yes, so nice to have my stuff back and working!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:04am Elwyn:

And not robbed thankfully! I'm starting to worry about getting robbed. My TV, CD and DVD collection is too big to take but my precious PlayStation and electric guitar!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:05am Chuck:

Have you heard of any robberies in the neighborhood, Elwyn?
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:06am Meghan:

They took his TV and Wii and maybe a few other things.... don't remember what, but yay Bosco!!!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:07am Elwyn:

No. But my place doesn't even have a security door downstairs and has its some vandalism outside.

On the other hand, my front door is dark thick. They need an axe or zombie army to breakthrough.

When I finally get Internet sorted out at my place, maybe I'll have a 24 hour/day web cam. My plan has so much download capacity.
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:08am Chuck:

"His", Meghan??? Who are you talking about?
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:09am Elwyn:

Wow! I haven't heard this song or album in about 10 years!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:10am Chuck:

Try getting a cabinet with a lock if you're concerned, Elwyn. I have one.
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:10am Meghan:

My neighbor downstairs. My building was broken into.
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:11am Elwyn:

I only seem to get worried when people talk about insurance and break-ins.
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:11am Chuck:

That SUCKS!!! Fortunately, I live so far in the boonies I never fret about such things...
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:11am Meghan:

Get renters insurance... it's so worth it
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:12am Chuck:

I don't even lock my door if I'm out for a short while...
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:12am Elwyn:

It used to really anger me when one of my ex-housemates would leave the front door open whenever he was expecting guests but wouldn't be anywhere nearing to keeping an eye on who comes in.
It sucked in winter and there's a reason for the doorbell.
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:15am Chuck:

Nice how you've managed to get from Glenn Miller to here, Meg! Practically seamless....
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:16am Elwyn:

Other news: I still haven't gotten my bond back from the last place. The landlord wants to take out $200 for paint damage and here's the crazy part: he wants $400 for hiring a gardener to trim the creepers that they planted!! They are creepers!!!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:16am Meghan:

hehe... like you didn't notice!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:18am Chuck:

What! Grounds keeping is supposed to be the landlords responsibility.... That's not right!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:19am Pierre:

Bonjour Meghan, is "Ohio" the theme of today's Underwater theme park ?
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:19am Elwyn:

Apparently, it was part of our lease but they are creepers!!! What do landlords expect from creepers?
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:21am Meghan:

Bonjour Pierre! No, we are continuing the road trip.... so now it is the next 5 states...
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:22am Chuck:

Sounds like a DIY to me, Elwyn... Better than getting charged for it....
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:24am Marmalade Kitty:

Ohio!
..sounds like a greeting, but it means Great River!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:25am Elwyn:

Heh. That household had two World of Warcraft junkies and one PlayStation junkie! Got no time for gardening! :-)


Bonjour Pierre and M.Kitty!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:25am Meghan:

ha! Great River next to a Great Lake!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:26am Elwyn:

Meghan! Can we stop the car to stalk Bob Pollard and Kim and Kelley Deal?
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:26am Chuck:

Are we gonna make a stop in Chi-town when we get to Illinois, Meghan? Just spoke to the Koh-Varilla's last week...
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:27am Meghan:

no pit stops Elwyn! Last week made us behind as is!!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:27am Marmalade Kitty:

Elwyn, get a big guard dog!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:28am Howard:

Hey. Thanks for the Dean Wareham tickets @ Bowery. Cool show. Still wished it was a full fledged reunion though.
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:28am Pierre:

Bonjour Elwyn
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:29am Elwyn:

Mmm... I was thinking of getting a Golden Retriever if my landlord permits it... they have a reputation for being mild. :-)

Meghan! *points* They're just over there, doing cool illict stuff! We gotta stop. *wimpers*
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:34am Chuck:

Wisconsin doesn't exactly roll off the lips... Maybe that's why there are so few songs...
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:34am Meghan:

Hey there Howard! Yeah, it was a fun show. I talked to them before the interview about their friendship and he said it was a bit rocky, like the break up of a first love.... so I am glad there wasn't that tension there!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:36am Meghan:

Ha.... Elwyn, like Bosco is ferocious!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:39am ?:

I feel like ReRun in the credits of "Whats Happenin'"

"WAIT FOR ME!"

(morning gang)
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:40am Meghan:

*giggles* I assume this is Dave....
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:41am Dave B:

yep. Coffees brewing!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:42am Chuck:

Speaking of pets... Gotta go tend to G'Kar's needs. Back in a minute....
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:43am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Hey there everybody?! Meghan, how's the car running this morning?
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:44am annie:

morning all... chrome is taking forever to load today... took me 20 minutes to get here..
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:44am Meghan:

Morning ALF! It's up and running today! We are BACK!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:45am Dave B:

At least we're in the Motor City, in the event of any problems...
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:45am Chuck:

Ugh! G'Kar is a crap magnet... Burrs stuck all over him again...
Morning Dave, Annie, and ALF!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:45am Meghan:

morning Annie....
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:46am Dave B:

and my Number check on that was 327, a nice peppy Chevy Smallblock displacement.
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:47am Dave B:

hey, is this the first use of Sufjan during this road trip? If so, well played!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:48am Chuck:

I always liked GM's 225 slant 6... Great engine that they haven't made in years...
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:48am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Never heard of Sufjan Stevens, but me likes! :-)
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:49am Chuck:

Had a '73 Plymouth Valiant in college... Fun car!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:50am Dave B:

@ALF - anyone who can write a beautiful song about John Wayne Gacy Jr. is alright in my book..
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:50am annie:

chuck ain't livin in the boonies great? we never lock our doors here unless we're going out of town..
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:51am Dave B:

My first car was a 1964 Chevelle with a 3 on the tree. Thing used to stick between 1st and 2nd..
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:51am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

I've been to Ann Arbor once too. It is a beautiful town. "Wolverine Town"
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:51am Chuck:

Yup, love it Annie! Who's gonna rob me, the DEER? The coyotes?
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:53am Chuck:

Nice on the Chevelle, Dave! My first was a '72 Buick Skylark... What a beast! Had the 350 "rocket" engine in it....
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:55am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

If you drive thru Texas on I-40 thru Amarillo, you will be in and out of the state in no time. Perfect reason to not play the thousands of songs about Texas.
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:55am Dave B:

YES! ARKANSAS!!!

If only ONE SONG, it must be this...

http://www.last.fm/music/Charles+Manson/_/Arkansas
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:55am Chuck:

Indiana! RV capitol of America!
  Thu. 9/2/10 6:59am karen:

The 3rd holiday is Sukkot, its the Harvest.
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:01am Meghan:

ah! Thanks! Is that the one where I see the covered huts on balconies in Brooklyn? I remember that being the fall....
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:02am Chuck:

God, I haven't heard this song in ages! Thanks, Meghan!
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:02am Dave B:

a colleague of mine always refers me to the following site, for all questions about his faith:

http://www.jewfaq.org
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:02am karen:

That's pronounced (Soocoat)
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:05am Chuck:

I was wondering if this one would make the cut, Meg... hehe....
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:09am Marmalade Kitty:

Michigan meaning - Great Lake!
Indiana - Land of Indians!
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:11am Meghan:

Chuck, are you headed back to Chicago?
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:12am Chuck:

Not any time soon, Meg. I just wanted to talk to Anna and Jeff and see what they were up to. It's been 2 years since I was there last...
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:13am Meghan:

ahhhh, I was wondering if it was another new job
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:15am karen:

Yes, the hut is called a "sukah" and the roof is usually just branches so you can see the stars and eeaven and give thanks for the harvest.
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:15am Chuck:

Evey artist I speak to says things are still very slow. Good thing my client base has expanded. I've got pieces to pick up in Beacon in addition to the stuff that's aready in my shop. Business is booming on my end!
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:15am Elwyn:

Wouldn't it be cool if John Cougar got attacked by a "cougar" and became an actual cougar?

I spy with my little eye, something that starts with "R".
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:16am Chuck:

Yay! Chameleons!
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:18am Dave B:

Bottlerockets and Chameleons! W00T!
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:22am annie:

hey chuck where are you?? i'm over in delaware county..
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:22am Elwyn:

Didn't David Letterman come from Indiana?
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:23am Chuck:

Ulster county, Annie. New Paltz specifically...
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:28am Chuck:

Never miss a chance to slip in a 4AD record, eh, Meghan?
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:30am Meghan:

ha! no... but this was part of a compilation. Plus lately I don't realize it for the new groups. Haven't kept up with the label like I used to
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:32am Chuck:

Interesting. I thought 4AD was defunct. Haven't seen anything new on that label....
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:34am Dave B:

This Albert King track got some use, hmm...
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:35am Chuck:

I think we need to resurrect the STIFF record company! That would be fun!
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:35am Elwyn:

Didn't 4AD also release that Pixies boxset with new Vaughan Oliver artwork last year (but no new tracks or remastering)?
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:35am Meghan:

yeah it did! I was trying to fix it... but it just didn't want to be fixed.... oh well
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:37am Meghan:

*swoons at Vaughn Oliver's work*

4 AD has been putting out a lot of new stuff.
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:38am Dave B:

looking for some rustic co-ed rump!
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:43am Elwyn:

I can't help you there, Dave!

Meghan, do you have any tips for guys asking out bartenders/baristas? I overheard one saying she got dumped by a guy she spoke to on the phone a few times. How do I NOT creep out this lady in the hospitality industry?
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:45am Dave B:

it's part of the lyric Elwyn...

and my advice - don't hit on them while they're working. It's gotta be objectifying.
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:46am Chuck E. Jesus:

if you don't play Crucifux for WI, well, i'll be dissappointed...
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:46am Chuck:

Kevin Finch was from Wisconsin originally if you recall, Meg....
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:48am Chuck:

Cheese and beer! How can you go wrong? Of course, the gas factor could be an issue....
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:51am Meghan:

I agree with Dave. Just be your witty self and make her laugh. Can't ever go wrong with making a girl laugh.
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:55am Dave B:

and if that fails, try chloroform...
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:57am Chuck:

Easy there, Dave! Agree with Meghan. I've "scored" by making women laugh.... But, I WAS the bartender then. Don't know about roll reversal...
  Thu. 9/2/10 7:58am Elwyn:

I don't see her except at work. I think I'll just give her my phone number and say "if you want to hang out sometime..."

We're all getting an ample supply of calcium from WI! :-)
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:01am Elwyn:

Chuck, that makes me wanna do a barista course more now! Mmm... There are so many things I want to buy when I get any of my bond back: course, record player and a robot vacuum cleaner
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:03am Dave B:

I kid... I kid! (about the chloroform)

If she's working bar/coffee - just tell her you'd like to buy her a beverage sometime and someplace else.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:11am Chuck:

Funny, I never took a course to bartend... Learned it on the fly... You, Meghan?
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:13am Dave B:

Here you go: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVSb1AXTyuk
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:13am Meghan:

Learning as I go! Only way to do it is to make the same drinks over and over....
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:16am Chuck:

The rough one is when you get an order for a drink that you only have 70% of the official ingredients too! Making convincing substitutions is part of it...
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:16am Dave B:

@chuck and meghan - it's all about the sampling and quality control!

:-)
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:16am Parq:

Catchy song, this Push Stars.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:18am Meghan:

this is math and physics Club
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:18am Chuck:

I had to wing a Mai Tai like that once...
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:18am Elwyn:

People are puzzled when I tell people I want to go to MN and when I tell them some of my favourite bands come from there, they are still puzzled. If I recall correctly, the Mats, Huskers, Dylan, Prince, Low and Soul Asylum came from there. I wish I could go back in time and see the Mats and Huskers
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:21am Parq:

I know, Meg, I was late on the draw.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:21am Parq:

Would'a made a lousy gunfighter.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:22am Chuck:

My father lived in Minneapolis for many years before he died. Never been there myself...
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:22am Meghan:

hehe... so would I...
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:24am Elwyn:

I finished Red Dead Redemption to 100% completion but I don't thing that'd make any good in the real wild west.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:25am Chuck:

Using a REAL hand gun is totally different, Elwyn! Trust me....
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:26am Chuck:

WooHoo! Dictators!
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:26am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Meghan, I don't know how much rap music you play on your show, but I know of a song about Minnesota by the group Atmosphere called "Shh" . Wish I would have e-mailed you a week ago about it.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:28am Meghan:

I do play it when I can fit it in! always feel free to send me it. Especially for these shows where I am not grouping by genre... trying to change up my format a bit.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:28am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Just looked at the lyrics and I don't think there are any curses on it.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:29am kath:

didn't even realise it was Thursday already!!!
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:29am Meghan:

still would be safe on my show! curses are allowed on web only shows!
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:29am Meghan:

morning Kath! How quickly the week flies by!
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:30am kath:

Might be taking a REAL road trip next week, from NY to Northern Kentucky.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:30am Chuck:

Hi, Kath! Boy, you have been in a time warp of late...
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:30am Meghan:

oh! Pick me up some good bourbon!
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:30am Dave B:

greets
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:30am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Wish I was there at the station with you right now. I could probably maybe ask someone to look for the CD in the archives for you
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:31am CEJ:

question: what does WFMU broadcast while the web-only shows play?
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:31am kath:

@Chuck, it's that weird limbo of kinds no longer in summer camp and not yet back in school.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:32am Chuck:

School starts next week, doesn't it?
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:32am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

@ CEJ I think JM in The AM is on the air right now. I may be wrong.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:33am Meghan:

The broadcast JM in the AM... it's an all Jewish show. They play music and go over various Jewish events and news from Israel... That is why we get to be on regular airwaves when a Jewish Holiday comes about....
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:34am Elwyn:

Morning Kath! Can't wait for the weekend. Gonna have a few bourbons and play SingStar with inebriated friends
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:35am Elwyn:

That explains why there's always JM at end of the podcasts!!
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:35am kath:

So, too bad I missed the first set. We are looking for a house on the Ohio River, along the south, Kentucky side.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:37am Chuck:

Just make sure the house isn't on the flood plain, Kath! They have problems like that...
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:38am Parq:

Stayed way too long coz I had to hear that Weird Al song. Heard about it for years, but never actually heard it before. Great day and weekend gang. See you after the big scary hurricane.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:40am Chuck:

Walter "Radar" O'Reilly from "MASH"...
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:41am Chuck:

James T. Kirk (aka, The Shat) was from Iowa also...
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:42am Elwyn:

It shouldn't surprise me that other countries have "big" tourist traps. There's a Wikipedia page listing all the ones in Australia.
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:42am Meghan:

I thought Kirk was from Montreal.... they named a building in McGill for him.... maybe he went to school there...
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:42am annie:

dennis kucinich is from iowa
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:44am Meghan:

well Kath... if you move down there, I expect care packages to the station of tasty treats....
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:45am Dave B:

the Shat is Quebecquois...(sp)
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:45am Chuck:

I meant fictional character Capt. Jim Kirk, Meg. Not Bill Shatner, I think he's from Montreal...
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:46am Elwyn:

The nerd in me needs to point out that whilst Kirk says he was born in Iowa but works in outer space in Star Trek 4, in the alternative timeline he was born in outer space but raised in Iowa
  Thu. 9/2/10 8:46am kath:
