Listener comments!

Set the controls for the heart of NJ
  Mon. 7/4/11 12:41am marc:

wow a co-host? 1-800-989-WFMU
  Mon. 7/4/11 12:44am (mta) Tony:

Mike, do you have Hawkwind's "Spaced Out in London" CD?
  Mon. 7/4/11 12:45am (mta) Tony:

Mike, can you please type the name of the Hawkwind album you're looking for on CD?
  Mon. 7/4/11 12:47am yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

Good morning. Your show is definitely the best present a man can give to himself on this Monday morning
  Mon. 7/4/11 12:52am Mike Sin:

Hey everybody thanks for commenting!
@Tony The album is "Warrior At the Edge of Time". Don't have "Spaced Out"
  Mon. 7/4/11 1:04am (mta) Tony:

Hi Mike, I have Warrior At the Edge of Time on CD. Would you like to have a copy of it?
  Mon. 7/4/11 1:25am conor:

Small-hole 7 inch records issued in the US were designed to push down a very thin rigid-rod actuator on jukeboxes spindle to change platter speed from 45 to 33 rpm, to play long-play seven inch records (mini-lps) at correct speed.
Not the case in UK 7inchers, and quite a number of domestic releases (US). Some people would drill out their records to play correctly on jukeboxes.
Not me...
  Mon. 7/4/11 1:27am (mta) Tony:

Query: the station has a library of music larger than your imagination. Still, DJs do bring their own stuff.
  Mon. 7/4/11 1:31am conor:

in the video here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwrPyb8xB7k
just before around 7 Seconds, the actuator can be seen at around 11 o'clock on the spindle.
  Mon. 7/4/11 1:40am yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

This is such an amazing set guys
  Mon. 7/4/11 1:54am (mta) Tony:

Hi Mike, I have Hawkwind's "Warrior At the Edge of Time" on CD. I can't give you my own CD, but I would be happy to send a perfect copy to you including full artwork. Shall I send it to you in care of the station, or would you prefer I send it to some other address?
  Mon. 7/4/11 1:56am jt:

Na na na na na. Na na na na na.
  Mon. 7/4/11 2:08am abby:

yeah it was general hospital...
  Mon. 7/4/11 2:09am (mta) Tony:

Hello??? Am I being purposefully or accidentally ignored?
  Mon. 7/4/11 2:13am Mike Sin:

Hey Tony - Thanks! Will get back to you after the show. Thanks for the offer!
  Mon. 7/4/11 2:14am (mta) Tony:

Sure thing, Mike; thanks for replying.
  Mon. 7/4/11 2:39am Crispy:

Hey! Do you have any T2? Used to listen to "It'll All Work Out in Boomtown", but....you know.
  Mon. 7/4/11 2:46am Crispy:

I tried...
  Mon. 7/4/11 2:58am Ira te mix:

I have "Climb That Tree" by an all female band called She Trinity, this sounds exactly the same except for the male vocals!
