  Fri. 9/2/11 9:26pm david:

But would I have ever expected to turn on FMU and hear it? And that's.... the rest of the story.
  Fri. 9/2/11 9:27pm 12539:

And I was thinking of this Die Artsen song earlier today. Honest! I think it was the weather somehow.
  Fri. 9/2/11 9:32pm T-Zero:

His voice reminds me of Dylan

  Fri. 9/2/11 10:03pm john:

Wow, don't think I've ever heard the Dave Edmunds version of this song. Nice.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:04pm Other Tom:

re Chicago: Some of your less openminded listeners are really gritting their teeth about now.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:06pm pseu:

not for you to say. and who gives a crap.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:14pm chaz:

this john denver song is freakin' awesome. never heard it before. holy cow.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:16pm Stevel:

I spoke with Mr. and Mrs. Duchendorf, John Denver's parents, years ago before a concert at Red Rocks outside of Denver. Very nice. Coincidentally I spoke with Chuck Mangione's dad at the same venue. Never met the money people of course, but it seemed cooler to meet the parents. At least, that's what I told myself.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:16pm miketp:

  Fri. 9/2/11 10:16pm Stevel:

I think Chaz needs a hug.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:18pm Rich:

  Fri. 9/2/11 10:19pm john:

Cello rock roolz!
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:19pm Stevel:

Chaz suggested he needed a drink. Not sure I can help him, but I'll do my part here.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:21pm Rich:

J.D & O.N.J = Fusion Energy!
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:23pm chaz:

It's alright, I've got a scotch now.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:25pm Rich:

Whiskey In the Well.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:28pm Stevel:

Chaz: That is a huge weight off of my mind. Gin here.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:31pm Rich:

Cello Rock? Art Garfunkel vocal accompanied by Cello on S.N.L. Where do I find It?
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:33pm Kevin:

How do you prove wfmu is gods favorite station?
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:33pm Kevin:

I bet there is a LoT of competition for that title
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:34pm Rich:

  Fri. 9/2/11 10:34pm Skirkie:

How do you prove it's not?
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:39pm PB:

Do you intentionally play horrible music (Chicago, ELO, John Denver), etc.) because it is cool to be so uncool or do you really like this crap. Sometimes this station is too much.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:40pm Rich:

How Dry I Am.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:40pm pseu:

so, what kind of music do you like, exactly? I mean, how can *I* help YOU?
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:40pm john:

Yeah, everything sucks that more than six people have ever heard of. I mean, criminy.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:41pm John:

I sort mail to the show. It scares the management away.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:42pm michael c:

there are other radio stations, archives, and the sound of your own
a-holeness you can listen to pB...this is one of the best shows on the station
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:42pm pseu:

Oh, WAIT - I remember -- you like:
Jesus and Mary Chain
Captain Beefheart
The Beach Boys.
All have been found here. My job's done. And your job?
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:42pm miketp:

  Fri. 9/2/11 10:43pm pseu:

No, mike, i play music that even I hate -- just to be cool, cause they pay me so much.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:44pm john:

Actually, I'm here to gather information for the next hipster club meeting in Gowanus. I don't think they know this John Denver dude yet, but he's so good it'll make them throw away their Boston records. Now excuse me while I grow out my sideburns.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:46pm Rich:

I like Pseu and Fmu because it Is always too much.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:47pm PB:

@john, time to convert your old analog Journey, Cars and Foreigner albums to digital.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:47pm HotRod:

Thank you for playing Komeda!! :)
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:48pm God not Clapton:

Yeah I must say I'm impressed. Nice job with the Psychic TV/Chicago mix.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:48pm pseu:

the flood has brought a bumper crop of dicks in my backyard.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:48pm Rich:

pseu: Float me a Loan?
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:49pm pseu:

hey HotRod - got your tix for Portishead yet?
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:49pm pseu:

FEMA;s handing out hankies right about now. Get in that line.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:52pm HotRod:

no tickets for me! not yet...
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:52pm john:

Surely you mean convert my mp3s to cassette?
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:55pm T-Zero:

Hi, HotRod. Sorry I missed you morning show. Will have to catch up with the archive. Blasted need for sleeping.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:55pm BSI:

hey wow. I missed the Dreams Less Sweet track. And the first ELO album... best thing they ever did (next to ELO2)...... well done.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:55pm 12539:

Pseu, I think of your show as a welcome guest in my home.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:56pm EzSezz:

This Bon Iver song is purty.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:56pm GM:

Pseu's show is the only radio program that holds my interest anymore, I, an old 70s prog head. I had no idea there was still so much good and innovative music out there. Thanks Pseu for leading me out of the 70s to something nice.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:57pm HotRod:

All good, T-Zero! This Panda Bear track makes it all better. ;)
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:57pm pseu:

thanks. Forgive me for changing the direction of the toilet paper roll. How the hell can anyone reach UNDER to get any? I hate that.
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:58pm alberto:

pseu, you nailed it! sweating my ass off and blasting wfmu whilst i silkscreen posters!
  Fri. 9/2/11 10:58pm osvi:

Pseu, sometimes your show is the soundtrack to getting drunk on a Friday night get-together thing....like now...then Inflatable Squirrel Carcass gets us primed for the trippy stuff...oh yeah...
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:00pm T-Zero:

Pseu, kind of hard to have a sort of pop show and not play pop eh? And like you said earlier, who gives a crap. It's not as if they're being forced to listen.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:01pm Kevin:

I'm still wanting to know how god decided wfmu is the best
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:01pm Kevin:

Alberto, what ya printing?
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:03pm alberto:

"WFMU is the Best - says God" t-shirts
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:04pm alberto:

  Fri. 9/2/11 11:14pm alberto:

i did not post the god comment.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:21pm John:

Ha, caravan reminded me of carrole-anne by the orchids and I had to spend 15 min finding that wimpy record to hear it. Now I am back.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:22pm Skirkie:

Could God make a baseball jersey so big that not even he could fit in it?
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:23pm john:

The Orchids are NOT wimpy! Just couldn't bear the thought going out under my name, if not IP address.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:25pm pseu:

I gave him a capital J.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:26pm john:

thank you
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:27pm michael c:

gotta give you a capital W for this show
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:28pm T-Zero:

Heh, I just thought John/john was adding an afterthought, like the band's not wimpy but that specific album was lol
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:29pm pseu:

i know, i know... WTF
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:29pm john:

Hell, almost confused ME for a moment.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:30pm Skirkie:

Sorry, I should have referred to God as (s)he.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:33pm john to other john:

Do you really think I'd both own the record and find it and put it on if I meant that as an insult? C'mon... they are so wimpy.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:36pm eastvanhalen:

God and I are going to see this band at International Pop Overthrow tonight. You'd think He could at least have managed a +1.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:36pm Wimpy:

I will gladly record you a song next week for a contract today
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:37pm John:

Tee- shirts and bumper stickers will be issued.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:38pm Chop Scott:

The only solid and consistently good thing for me this entire Summer was yer thing with a Hook--I thank you!
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:39pm God not Clapton:

Best summer listening ever. I should go create something.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:40pm Kevin:

Alberto, do you do the design on those?
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:40pm T-Zero:

It has been a fun show for this sweltering summer night
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:40pm tomB:

Was that Hammond Jr. or Sr.? Did he really use that title instead of "Wait"? Just curious. Btw, tonight's show was great!
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:42pm Colin from Vancouver British Columbia Canada:

This is just right.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:43pm eastvanhalen:

Hello Colin from Vancouver British Columbia Canada. Are you coming to see the Irises at IPO tonight?
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:44pm john:

I vaguely seem to recall that the second best Albert Hammond on record did a version of the song.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:45pm PiLA:

@pseu: baylor's up by two with a minute to go
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:46pm a specific john:

Okay so I just realized how many j/Johns are here tonight. The one that posted about the carrole-anne posted about the orchids and not anything else. Maybe it's time I picked a WFMU name and stopped using the random mix of pronouns and my name that I like to use.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:47pm Colin from Vancouver British Columbia Canada:

I wish I could come eastvanhalen! I'm totally knackered after a sixty hour week, 1500 km of driving and this martini and pseu's mellow picks have rendered me catatonic...have fun at IPO!
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:51pm Stevel:

Colin: You had m a knackered and martini.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:58pm eastvanhalen:

I was knackered last night, but that was because the cigarette someone passed me late in Cheap Trick's set wasn't a cigarette at all, which I discovered upon taking a huge drag off it. Made for an interesting encore.
  Fri. 9/2/11 11:59pm God not Clapton:

Kids today.
  Sat. 9/3/11 12:02am Colin from Vancouver British Columbia Canada:

Gonna check out IPO tomorrow for sure. Less knackered, more martinied. Not smoked.
  Sat. 9/3/11 6:18am alberto:

@ kevin yes
  Sun. 9/25/11 10:06pm Babs:

Bonnie Dobson---what a voice! Must check out her other songs.
