Listener comments!

  Sun. 12/19/10 12:06am Matt from Springfield:

Good evenin' Joe! It's been cold outside in the DC area as well! Is there still snow up there in Jersey?
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:07am (¸.•´ (¸.•[]`•.¸.•´¯`•:

"...Cold Outside" is def. the most overplyed song on FMU every winter. a bit smug too. :P
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:08am Joe McG:

Hey Matt! Hey whatever you are.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:10am Matt from Springfield:

As you (above) once said you pronounce your listener name "roughly like an Amanda screech", would [screech] or [Amanda screech] be adequate shorthand? Or are you "the Listener formerly known as.." something?
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:10am Chop Scott:

Brrrr! Julie London is warming...
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:11am Matt from Springfield:

Maybe "@ (," ?
I've never posted a reply to you on Irwin's show, so I'm at a loss for a standard!
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:12am Joe McG:

Hey, Chop Scott! Good to "see" you.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:13am Matt from Springfield:

@Dave Harris: How 'bout "Dinner Music for a Pack of Hungry CANNABIS"? Oooh yeah!

Gosh, it seems I'm filling in for coalhard until he stops by!
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:14am Joe McG:

Ha ha!
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:17am dave:

holy crap! ass ponys! i haven't heard them in a dog's age. thanks!

also (a bit late): is there any other song as profoundly creepy as "baby it's cold outside"?
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:18am Joe McG:

Yeah, that one that Maurice Chevalier sings about thank heaven for little girls.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:19am Kenzo:

Oh, Joe, how tacky, I sent you a huge work-related message right as your show was starting!
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:19am MD:

THE SOLSTICE IS SOON UPON US...
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:20am Joe McG:

Precisely, MD, precisely! Thank you.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:21am (¸.•´ (¸.•[]`•.¸.•´¯`•:

an Amanda screech? Somebody else suggestd that, but not a bad approximation. Maybe more like the sound of a snake swallowing a sack of marbles and some porcupine quills, but it's all good. // Liking the 6P7.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:21am MD:

Just keepin" it real...
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:22am Joe McG:

S'okay, Kenzo, I'm not reading my e-mail during my show. Never do!
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:22am will:

Oh wow, the Gurus. I wanted them to be Clear Light and I wanted Clear Light to be the Doors. I owned this very Gurus single with its marvy picture sleeve, and now I am old. Hurray!
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:23am dave:

i'm not sure if "thank heaven for little girls" is MORE creepy than "baby it's cold outside". the former has a smug terror to it, but the latter has more of a sense of impending horror. six of one, i guess.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:24am MD:

Hey Will...nice one!!!! I got ya!!!
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:26am (¸.•´ (¸.•[]`•.¸.•´¯`•:

IMO "Little Girls" is way creepier, "...Cold Outside" is just smug in a "we're so gonna have (very traditional 50s style) sex and we'd like to tell everybody about it" kinda way, not so creepy really, more obnoxious.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:26am Matt from Springfield:

Jonathan Richman! Great set, including 6P7.

Creepiest songs? Are we talking only the creepiest WINTER songs, or creepiest in GENERAL?
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:28am dave:

i'd say "cold outside" ranks up there among the creepiest in general. there's a threatening undercurrent in that song. what DID he put in her drink?
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:28am MD:

KID LOVIN' PRIEST CREEPY???
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:30am (¸.•[]`•.¸.•´¯`•:

Good point Dave, I hadn't thought of that.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:33am dave:

sorry about the vitriol. the song just scares me.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:35am Joe McG:

No worries! DJs play a lot of songs I don't like, too.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:35am MD:

I HEARD IT!!! THE SURFACE NOISE...
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:36am Joe McG:

Can't have Surface Noise without the real article.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:36am Matt from Springfield:

Go winter folk!
Got any Vashti Bunyan handy? "Winter is Blue", "Girl's Song in Winter", "If in Winter", "The Coldest Night of the Year" (with Twice As Much, kind of like Baby It's Cold Outside!)
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:37am MD:

Gottcha!!!
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:38am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt, I think I can oblige! Hold tight for it.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:39am dave:

the replacements have some nice winter tunes too: "skyway" and "buck hill" spring to mind.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:39am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Joe! You're the best!
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:40am MD:

Hey I'm so glad I put FMU on and then the headphones on and did the dishes and did not watch SNL...THANK YOU JOE...ET AL...!!!
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:40am fleep:

These people need a steak dinner.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:41am Joe McG:

Oh, Fleep, much more twee folk to come. Better get a cow.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:41am Matt from Springfield:

OMG YES!
How canst I ever repay thou?!
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:42am Joe McG:

Money is good.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:43am Joe McG:

Just kidding, we don't accept payola at WFMU.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:43am Matt from Springfield:

What a coincidence...my bill for the Lift-Off pledge just arrived a couple days ago! You got lucky with that, Mister...

And for purists, I should have said "thee". Kind of rusty with informal English, haven't spoken it in over 400 years...
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:45am Joe McG:

Thanks, Matt, that's the kind of payola that we CAN use. Mucho appreciado!
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:45am MD:

Sometimes Vegetables make great music...I'm a big RAMONES fan!!!!!
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:46am Harry:

Mrs. Andy Williams! Awesome.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:46am Joe McG:

Ha ha! Vegetables clearly have a short shelf life.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:50am Joe McG:

Didn't Andy Williams used to do an annual Xmas TV show featuring Claudine? My one concession to Xmas programming, I guess....
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:51am fleep:

What causes the wimpage in winter songs? Do they put something in the cocoa?
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:52am Harry:

no concession, just cool
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:53am Matt from Springfield:

@fleep: "Wimpage"? What are you looking for in winter music, Fear's "F_ Christmas"? Oh, Spinal Tap did "Christmas With The Devil", that's a good one actually.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:54am Joe McG:

Well, there's this guy in a red suit, a bunch of cute reindeer, kinda hard to be hard. You could always get out the Yobs LP, fleep.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:57am fleep:

@Matt, @Joe: There's nothing wimpy about "The Messiah." Geez. It's these ethereal chicks who could use a little rum in the eggnog, just sayin.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:57am Harry:

Speaking of Santa, I recently heard that he was released from rehab for morphine addiction. Something to do with Bela Lugosi.
  Sun. 12/19/10 12:59am will:

Wow, this show is rising above. Wendy and Bonnie + Jan and Lorraine in the same set, complete with their winter songs. If I may weigh in on the creepiest song sure to put a damper on anyone's Xmas celebration: Momus, :Murderers, the Hope of Women."
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:05am MD:

ANY "FALLIN ON THE ICE" SFX???
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:07am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, don't usually listen to Dave the S, but that sounds like a good show to start. Maybe he'll play some of Slade's numerous Xmas songs!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:08am Joe McG:

Hm, I'm not sure he'll go the Slade route, but expect some Hasil Adkins and Sonics, at the very least!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:08am Joe McG:

Damn, MD, no ice on this CD!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:09am MD:

YES I REMEMBER JOHN SCHNAUL!!! CHOP ME DOWN AND COUNT MY RINGS!!!!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:10am Joe McG:

Seriously! Just thinking about it, I'm greying at the temples.
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:11am Julie:

Hank! It's Hank. The good Hank! Hi Joe!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:11am Matt from Springfield:

Wooooo! For Hank Sr., I'd hold a Christmas candle if I could instead of just a lighter aloft!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:11am Julie:

Oh and you played Fairground Attraction too..:)
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:12am Joe McG:

Hey, Julie! What's up?
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:12am MD:

THANK HANK!!!!!!!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:12am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Julie! Everyone must be in tonight enjoying the coziness, welcome to this already-packed party!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:14am Julie:

Hi Matt! My life is a party, Joe, I'm drinking a cider...woohoo...;lampshade on head will be next
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:15am Joe McG:

Again, Julie? Fifth time this week.
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:16am Julie:

What can I say, Joe? I'm a creature of habit. Really LAME habits.
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:16am Harry:

Don't put too much nutmeg in that cider!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:17am MD:

HEY WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I THOUGHT THIS WAS THE ONLINE MEETIN'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:17am Matt from Springfield:

I've got Spanish champagne in my glass and Chinese food in the fridge! For now at least, life is sufficient and happy :)
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:17am Julie:

it has a woodchuck on the label. It's cute. Yes, I like beverages with pictures of small woodland creatures.
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:18am Julie:

How IS Spanish champagne? I have Hearst champagne in my fridge, haven't tried it
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:18am Harry:

Ever Had Skunk Ale?
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:19am Julie:

Is it made OF skunks BY skunks or FOR skunks?
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:20am Harry:

Skunks and elves make it
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:20am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Ever have Freixenet? That's a well known Cava, but there are many others. This is a rosé Cava--if you like your bubbly BRUT then España is very great.
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:20am fleep:

that this nation, of the skunks, by the stunks, and for the skunks, shall not perish from the earth
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:20am Matt from Springfield:

@fleep: Though it will smell like they have...
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:22am Julie:

Joe, are you gonna be on Christmas night?
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:22am Matt from Springfield:

Whoa, other songs by Nick Heyward and Haircut 100! (excepting Love+1)
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:22am Julie:

Haircut 100 wow
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:23am Joe McG:

Yes, I will be on Xmas night, but probably not playing Xmas music. Too late.
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:24am Julie:

I think Justin Hayward could beat up Nick Heyward
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:24am Julie:

ah good I can enjoy you during my christmas drunk
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:25am MD:

YEAH!!! REGALE CALE!!!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:27am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Wow, The Moody Blues singer! I'm ashamed I didn't know his name till you mentioned it!

Speaking of J. Cale, has any DJ done a All-Cale show, from "Venus in Furs" to Nick Drake's "Fly" to Patti Smith's "My Generation" to his Welsh material? He may be one of the most diverse composers of rock history.
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:29am Joe McG:

Shall I take it on before he croaks, Matt?
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:29am MD:

The Stones love the Snow!!!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:29am Julie:

cool idea Matt. Yes, Justin.. I only play MB's nearly every week. I picked up a solo LP by him, haven't listened to it yet
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:30am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: And I love ya for it!
@Joe: Try it before he croaks, tributes are so TACKY, lol!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:31am Julie:

yes do it before he dies!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:32am Julie:

Oh WOW the moodies have an xmas album..I didn't know
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:33am Julie:

Winter winds? Sandy Denny did a great song called Winter Winds
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:35am MD:

Joe's show is the real SNL...!!! ANOTHER GREAT FMU SHOW DISCOVERED!!! BEEN LISTENING SINCE 1985...SO IT ONLY TOOK ME 25 YEARS!!! "COUNT THE RINGS!"
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:36am Julie:

Joe McGasko is Mr. Saturday Night
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:36am Joe McG:

Maybe some Sandy later, Julie, I actually did pull the Fotheringay album...
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:36am Matt from Springfield:

I LOVED Sachiko, the Japanese Joni. Don't forget to play her in the other seasons too!

YLT is great during the main Marathon, truly Monarchs Among Musicians. They played my "Midnight Confessions" request! As best they could anyway!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:37am Julie:

I agree Sachiko was terrific
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:42am Julie:

I think the Fotheringay album is my favorite of her stuff
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:46am MD:

WE ARE MEN...
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:46am Matt from Springfield:

Devo's cool, but this remix is really sharp! Who remixed it?
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:47am Joe McG:

A dude named Ian Taylor. Any info?
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:52am Julie:

are any of these 12" 45rpm or do you stick to the 7"?
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:53am Matt from Springfield:

Can't find a personal page for Ian, but YT has a lot of vids to his remixes. And a page has a link to his remix of Toni Basil's "Do You Wanna Dance".
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:53am Joe McG:

No, they're all 7-inchers. I guess 12 inchers that play at 45 would be kosher, but I can't get them on my thumb.
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:54am Julie:

Is this the B side of Don't go breakin'? I had that 45.
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:55am Joe McG:

Indeed it is!
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:57am Matt from Springfield:

This is a great B-side, certainly deserves more play than it's gotten. But you can prob. guess what a "Snow Queen" in L.A. is--nothing to do with winter!

Btw, don't click on that Toni Basil remix link in Google search, the site looks malware-ish.
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:57am (mta) Tony:

I'd like to have some of whatever Julie's drinking.
Joe, you're not to open your gift until Christmas. I presume you received it today.
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:58am Julie:

Trying to remember..it's a black label, isn't it?
  Sun. 12/19/10 1:59am Julie:

Judie Tzuke was on Rocket as well, would've been nice to hear Elton and her together
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:01am Matt from Springfield:

Hey (mta) Tony! Does this have anything to do with last week's discussion?

@Joe: This song always gets creepy, you should have played it last week on the anniversary of Lennon's death. He apparently had cassette tracks of this song in his pockets when he was killed.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:01am Julie:

Aren't most Yoko songs creepy?
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:03am Harry:

Don't worry ,kyoko mummy's only looking for a hand in the snow
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:04am Matt from Springfield:

Hmm, I'd say all Yoko songs are deep, from within the soul, either sad or creepy or tripped-out, but those that involved John or the POB seem more creepy than her merely "artsy" solo pieces. Plus this song has a specific connection to death here.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:04am MD:

YOKO YOKO YOKO...
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:04am (mta) Tony:

Hi Matt, yes, thank you for remembering, it IS regarding last week's discussion. I appreciate your shout out. Happy Holidaze, everyone!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:05am Julie:

Joe you make me wish it was snowing again
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:06am Julie:

Hi Mary!!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:06am Kevin Ayers:

Hello Joe,

I'm glad to hear my song as your background again.

Nice show,
Wish you the best. Merry Christmas.

Kevin Ayers.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:07am Julie:

I got the music in me!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:07am Matt from Springfield:

Mary Wing! I used to listen to your show before Irwin's, glad to have ya back!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:10am (mta) Tony:

The 7.5 minute version of "...Thin Ice" cost me over one hundred dollars on the CD, "Disco Not Disco." That's the mix that might've been in Lennon's pocket!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:10am MD:

COULD WE ALL MAKE IT TO SALSBURY PLAIN BY TUESDAY MORNING...???
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:11am Julie:

Wow Mary!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:11am Julie:

Mary Wingmas!!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:12am (mta) Tony:

Wow, Kevin Ayers! This is my chance to thank you personally for "Town Feeling." I love that tune, but of course there are others I like, too. I've got a few of your albums. It's a pleasure to thank you, personally. Happy Holidaze to you, too.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:16am MD:

OFF TO BED...HAPPY IN THE HEAD...THANK YOU JOE...THANK YOU GANG...A HAPPY WINTER TO US ALL "EACH AND EVERYONE!"
REMEMBER...IT'S BECAUSE OF THE RAIN...AND THE SNOW!!!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:16am Julie:

His voice reminds me a little of Elton
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:17am Matt from Springfield:

This Lindisfarne seems to have influenced some modern indie singer-songwriters.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:19am Joe McG:

Thanks, MD, sweet dreams!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:28am Matt from Springfield:

<holds Christmas candle aloft>
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:29am Matt from Springfield:

Nico!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:29am Harry:

ditto
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:30am Julie:

Nico Marble Index, the first goth album :)
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:40am Matt from Springfield:

Never heard of George Stavis, but if it's Vanguard, you know it's good :)
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:41am Joe McG:

George kicks ass on that banjer.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:44am Harry:

Wow what a beautiful John Hartford song!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:45am Julie:

ooooh I like this Kings of Convenience. Makes me think of Donovan

Also beautifully covered by Maffitt/Davies, Harry. Reissued this year on Rev-Ola, one of my faves of the year.

Definitely going to check it out, thanks, Joe
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:47am Brian in UK:

Hello Joe, Greetings from a very white Britain. You're really on a UK tip today!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:48am Joe McG:

Hey, Brian! Yes, I really am, actually. I think Brits make better winter music than Americans. We're all fun fun fun in the sun over here.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:48am Julie:

these winter themed songs are so wonderfully dark.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:49am Matt from Springfield:

A lot of AMAZING winter folk tonight, Brian!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:50am Brian in UK:

Just collected a Beagle puppy for my wife's Christmas present?
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:51am Joe McG:

That's the sweetest thing I've heard all year.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:51am Julie:

I am not fun fun fun in the sun. I wear a heavy black sweater and sit in the dark.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:52am Harry:

then you, too, Julie, are wonderfully dark
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:52am Brian in UK:

Sad to hear about The Captain.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:52am Joe McG:

With Nico!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:53am Joe McG:

@Brian: He's been ill for so long that I'm sort of surprised it didn't happen earlier, but it's sad. He left behind some beautiful art and unique music.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:53am Julie:

Yep. I wait for a truly hot summer day to go out bike riding in my heavy black woolens.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:55am Brian in UK:

I've just got a new bike but it's too slippy to ride it just now!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:55am Julie:

Yay! Yay! I love this. I used to play it on guitar.
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:55am Julie:

Thank you, joe!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:56am Julie:

Bike-riding on ice..an extreme sport
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:56am Brian in UK:

Ah Sandy
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:56am Joe McG:

No prob! Good request. Everybody had good requests tonight!

There's your Sandy!
Wow, you have great taste (and skill) for guitaring!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:57am Julie:

Well, I did back then anyway.

@ Matt I remember buying the first Lindisfarne album. Oooh what a givaway!

Great show Joe! Don't want it to stop!
  Sun. 12/19/10 2:59am Matt from Springfield:

@Brian: Truly a great export from the UK! The Strawbs, Fotheringay, a lot of really great folk from that period I like.

You had a perfect playlist for this weather Joe! Thanks for taking requests and have a good night!
