Listener comments!

  Mon. 8/29/11 9:04am Dead Corporate Eyes:

murnin' y'ins
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:09am Liz B.:

Morning everyone, hope you managed to stay dry!
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:09am pierre:

i'm saying that right wfmu is the only thing that keep my day bearable, job's so boring…

Bonjour Liz and all listeners (Paris checking in)
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:10am WiLd ................n e I L:

This jazz rocks!
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:11am Dead Corporate Eyes:

we had beautiful weather in Ohio all weekend. I was prepared to evacuate.
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:13am seang:

yeah without FMU this library job is complete drudgery
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:14am Liz B.:

A bunch of my pals were evacuated in Brooklyn, so they all crashed at my place and we had a hurricane party.
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:16am WiLd ................n e I L:

My 83 year old mom evacuated from Ventnor Friday...she is ok! So is the house!
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:16am BSI:

yes. This Onde track is where I need to be at this moment.... which means, I think, i'm already there? here? what?
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:20am Dead Corporate Eyes:

YOU ARE HERE NOW
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:20am BSI:

no, Ram Dass! Back to the mountaintop! Git! GIT!
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:21am M I S T E R G A R C I A:

we are all here now!
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:24am Parq:

Annie, are you with us? For those of you who don't know, Listener Annie lives in an area that really did get clobbered yesterday.
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:30am listener james from westwood:

hope the wfmu building fared well. i know that's a low-lying area. at least the transmitter survived; wnyc am's got damaged!
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:33am WiLd ................n e I L:

This reminds me of Flying Lizards a little, with rap influences of course...
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:36am Liz B.:

The WFMU building didn't flood, but we had some bad leaking in our main studio: the carpet is still soggy and it's a little musty smelling in here. Thankfully the water was away from the equipment.
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:37am Kevin:

serengeti track was good!
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:39am T-Zero:

I thought turn table 2 took a bath.

@WiLd; I have the single EP for Summertime Blues and Money.
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:39am T-Zero:

Welcome back safe and sound, Liz.
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:40am Liz B.:

Ha ha, forgot about turntable 2, the leak above that is old news (we've got a cover and a bucket nearby at all times).
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:42am T-Zero:

@Liz: I kept fearing the power would go out more than flooding.
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:43am listener james from westwood:

Glad the water was minor and, in the turntable 2 case, anticipated. I had visions of the Pit becoming a nightmarish schmutz-pool.
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:44am Liz B.:

We were certainly lucky that the power remained on both at our studio and at our transmitters. There weren't too many power outages in the NYC area, thankfully. I suppose most utilities are underground in urban areas.
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:46am fred von helsing:

Is there an official WFMU Irene Theme Song that emerged from the weekend ?
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:46am T-Zero:

@Liz Yeah. During the Clay and Julie marathon, I'd heard that one of the power stations in Jersey shut down because of flooding and one in Hoboken, but fortunately WFMU must have been on a different grid.
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:48am WiLd ................n e I L:

You need to get some industrial fans to dry out your carpet to avoid MOLD!!! In the drywall, carpets, etc...might want to start addressing this now before it becomes a major problem!
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:51am WiLd ................n e I L:

@ T-Zero-
I used to have records (gave them away in a paroxysm of minimalism), glad you have that one! Vinyl sounds so real...
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:52am T-Zero:

@WiLd: I've tried to hang on to most of my vinyl. Lost some due to a water leak several years ago. Problem is, last time I moved the turntable was broken, so now I have the vinyl but no way to play them. lol
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:53am fred von helsing:

fantastic irene photo

  Mon. 8/29/11 9:53am Reno:

3 cheers for Clay and Julie (what , no Fabio?) I hope Clay Pigeon's upstate home was safe. MAJOR devastation in that area.
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:53am yayson:

great show liz!
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:56am Liz B.:

We'll be drying everything out today for sure, Wild Neil... well aware of the long term damage that can cause.
  Mon. 8/29/11 9:59am CB:

This is nice....
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:00am CB:

I was worried about the station all weekend glad to hear that everything is fine, love WFMU
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:25am Sam:

Liz, you'll always be DJ Ketchup to me!
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:30am pierre:

Scott W + angels in america ?
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:32am Liz B.:

Thanks Sam, I must say I am a huge fan of ketchup (it is the main reason I ever eat french fries). Pierre, Angels in America will be on Scott W's show next Monday!
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:32am Scott W:

Oui, Pierre! Next Monday
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:37am Jennique:

Wow, never knew there was a cover of Warm Leatherette. I likey!
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:39am Sam:

Yeah, without ketchup fries would be unbearable. No taste at all except grease.
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:39am Abe Something:

This Da Cruz song is a monster! YES!
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:41am WiLd ................n e I L:

Like the droney arabic string thing.
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:42am dc pat:

and now for another view: ketchup or catsoup, is an abomination that must be annihilated. Good fries don't need nothin.
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:42am pierre:

@Scott William : you are my hero.
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:46am BSI:

I prefer a strong curry sauce w/fries. But then, I'd prefer a strong curry w/life in general.
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:47am lorenzo:

you guys ever try that filipino banana ketchup? pretty good stuff.

enjoying the show, liz!!
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:49am dc pat:

yeah, curry's good w/ fries.
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:54am pierre:

If i have the rudeness to jump on that Fires conversation, i would say either vinegar or Biggy Sauce… curry's good also, but depends on the time of the day.
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:55am pierre:

"fries" not "Fires", pardon.
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:57am parented1:

AKA and Cheer Accident are freakin awesome! Thanks for sharing them!!!!!!
  Mon. 8/29/11 10:59am pierre:

Chrome is slowly becoming one of my fav.
But isn't "Red Exposure" from the 80's?
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:00am WiLd ................n e I L:

Cocteua Twins maybe ? If you want to?
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:02am WiLd ................n e I L:

Chrome sounded really Cars-ish...is this the same Hard Rock Chrome, or another one?
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:10am Liz B.:

It's this Chrome (only one I know, but there may be others):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrome_%28band%29

"Red Exposure" was released in 1980 originally.
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:13am lorenzo:

Nuclear Animals should be Nucular Aminals. They have one of THOSE names. :)
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:16am Liz B.:

Thanks for the heads-up Lorenzo! These kids with the band names...
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:20am Carmichael:

Good morning Liz and others. Glad to hear you weren't thrown halfway across the Atlantic this weekend.
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:20am pierre:

merci Liz, James, Richard, and Juan this live is inspiring
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:27am Liz B.:

Love this crazy synth track!
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:28am Jennique:

This track should be called Adventures in Sea Monkeyland.
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:29am Dead Corporate Eyes:

I hear "blue skies, nothing but blue skies"
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:29am lorenzo:

It was nice to hear them here, Liz! I've seen them a couple times in Portland. They are great. One of the better purposely misspelled bands.
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:30am tony:

Hard to believe these cool sounds are all emanating from the same place.
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:31am Another DS:

That last one had a Sun Ra vibe
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:32am Liz B.:

That last one was Sun Ra! Good ears Another DS!
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:46am roman:

any chance james pants wants to come to boston before he leaves the east coast and play a small show at a bike shop?
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:47am WiLd ................n e I L:

Christian Hard Rock: Grammatrain! Check it out, they truly rock.
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:47am Looms:

Hello Liz and fellas!
Will have to check out James' live set in the archive.
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:47am pierre:

As James Pants is in Germany, he might want to stop by Paris sometimes, does he ?
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:51am WiLd ................n e I L:

High Energy Disco Music =? Discopolo? (affordable, Polish CDs for 10 zlotys instead of 60 zloty (to a Pole, a zloty is almost like a dollar!)...so is this cheap, organically grown disco for Germany also? I thought they were rich?
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:56am The Diamond Miner:

We know we have the best radio station in the world, we can't let the DJ's know, they would get snotty.
  Mon. 8/29/11 11:57am Liz B.:

Hey Roman, James is already back in Germany now, unfortunately. But drop him a line through Stones Throw and maybe he'll swing by Boston on his next U.S. trip.
  Mon. 8/29/11 12:00pm Ike:

I missed a huge chunk of this show while commuting, but that very first set was AWESOME, Liz!
  Thu. 9/1/11 3:04pm bennett4senate:

Dear Liz and James Pants: Of course, there are ALREADY Enya remixes and they are AMAZING peep http://dublab.com/listen/mp3-blog/dntel-enya-mixes/ (just let the new age wash over you Liz)
