Listener comments!

  Wed. 11/16/11 9:02am λɯəɹəɾ:

he said lexicon
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:03am Cheri Pi:

He said it. Hey Ken, I bet your soul wax pals would love to mash Iced Honey with Azz Everywhere.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:03am Cheri Pi:

I AM NOT SPERMLESS!!!
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:04am Dan B From Upstate:

Yeah, I think this is the perfect christmas gift to give to someone I don't like but I still have to buy a christmas gift for due to some sort of awful social pressures placed on us.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:04am glenn:

christ on a skateboard. make it stop.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:04am Ken:

Cheri, you are too. You're spermless, like a girl.

Jeremy, what did he rhyme with Lexicon?
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:05am Cheri Pi:

You know those French men who talk through a song with a nice vibe in the background (Melody Nelson and the like) I think this is what Lou was going for.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:06am Mark:

this actually got a positive review in the new issue of The Wire
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:06am Brian C.:

Dreams do come true! Been waiting for some more Lulu. I guess this is a "bad" cut? Hmm, not sure if "good" or "bad" applies to this. Pretty sure "Awesome" does!
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:06am ?:

I want to hear Barbara Streisand and Sepultura
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:07am glenn:

well, mexican would be the obvious choice for a rhyme.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:07am Ken:

I LIKE it!!
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:08am lee:

poor Lou
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:08am Marmalade Kitty:

oops..?!
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:09am moose:

i see him often at the dog run, lou reed- now i'll only think of 'spermless like a girl'
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:09am Mark:

you should get the audio of Loutallica playing "White Heat/White Light"
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:10am λɯəɹəɾ:

i had too google the lyrics because i didn't recall. he used lexicon in the middle of a line, not the end, thus making it not rhyme capable at the moment of execution.

but Mexican or even better, mexicon, would be a good rhyming partner imho.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:12am Mark:

The Return Of Pipecock Jackson has been reissued by Honest Jon
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:14am Cheri Pi:

  Wed. 11/16/11 9:18am glenn:

  Wed. 11/16/11 9:20am Cheri Pi:

I hear that Lee Perry burned down the Ark because of the coming of LuLu.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:20am Robert:

Jan, this is the time of year, especially in the morning, when VHF & UHF tend to bend more around the curve of the Earth.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:20am Mark:

"Originally released in 1980, this album is the final work to emerge from the BlackArk studio, before its permanent destruction."
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:23am yayson:

  Wed. 11/16/11 9:27am Ken:

Sorry Yayson, last week was the 18 second show. Today I'm playing only sings with a duration of 4:47. Requests?
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:28am Gavin:

  Wed. 11/16/11 9:29am AnAnonymousParty:

  Wed. 11/16/11 9:31am hamburger:

  Wed. 11/16/11 9:33am Andrew:

  Wed. 11/16/11 9:34am pgw in mntclr:

West Side Salon. Some of those Jets actors were required to lighten their hair for shooting the picture, for a more pronounced contrast with the Sharks.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:35am Dan B From Upstate:

We only see his face from the side. He MUST be Beavis.
  Wed. 11/16/11 9:35am Michele:

  Wed. 11/16/11 9:37am Gavin:

  Wed. 11/16/11 9:44am Gavin:

  Wed. 11/16/11 9:46am jet girl:

Great suggestions, thanks!
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:01am paul:

  Wed. 11/16/11 10:01am jonathan:

thank you
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:01am Cecile:

does Killer Joe by Benny Golson start with finger snaps.

This Queen song is a hair better than I remembered it.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:02am Cecile:

BSI, what are the odds of us both being hair-obsessed at the same time?

Good morning everyone!
Snap your Finger, Snap your Neck by Prong?

Dancing In The Carmen by People Like Us and Ergo Phizmiz from "Rhapsody in Glue"
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:05am BSI:

@Cecile: I just got here, did I miss some zesty hair obsession? In Freddy Mercury's case, it's a no-brainer. In my humble. When the hair went, so went the magic(k).
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:06am (~_^) fofo [:

Ooo, Rhapsody in Glue (♥_♥)
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:07am BSI:

Oh hell, for finger-snapping, hit up SNAKEFINGER. Lots of choices. "Here Comes The Bums" from the Chewing Hides the Sound LP comes to mind.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:07am (~_^) fofo [:

oh, nice played Ken! (^-^)b
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:08am Aaron in JCity:

Prong - really?? What no beg to differ???
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:08am Cecile:

I said something was "a hair better" right after.

Freddie's hair was kinda short for News of the World, and there was good stuff there. And I think while Another One Bites the Dust isn't good Queen, it's a great song.

BSI, how can I forget that one? Classic.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:09am Gavin:

probably anything by Mike Patton??? Especially from Fantomas' Director's Cut album.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:09am Cecile:

Beatnik Party by Snakefinger also has great snapping.
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:10am Cecile:

wow, a Prong song I kinda like.

  Wed. 11/16/11 10:15am Randy in NC:

@Mark in DC - Yes!
  Wed. 11/16/11 10:15am Cecile:

This sounds like really good house/techo with a gospel feel.

  Wed. 11/16/11 11:08am (~_^) fofo:

*sighing*
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:09am Cecile:

Ken, you seriously need to check out Korpiklaani.
They call themselves "hummpa-metal" and they sing about drinking homemade rotgut on barren Finnish potato farms and killing missionaries as they disembark from their boats.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:09am Dan B From Upstate:

I love this song more every time I hear it.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:11am Mark:

the down side of black metal is always the vocals
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:12am Cecile:

some bands have great vocals even if they are growly. I always liked Opeth's. And Lamb of God's actually used to be pretty good.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:13am Robert:

Death metal always sounds to me like someone vomiting or about to vomit.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:13am (~_^) fofo:

Cecile,

They sound like dissidents coming from Elakaleiset.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:13am russ tamblyn:

fire walk with me.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:14am Richard from Venezuela:

Sigh rocks.

Greetings Ken and all the listeners.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:14am Cecile:

Yes, Robert. Or the Cookie Monster, I've heard that.

LOL, fofo.

Oh, yeah. Lamb of God. (♥_♥)

But to hearing them live (>_<)
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:15am Ricardo Montalban:

the emergency alert system is the original human mic check
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:15am Cecile:

yes, fofo. Horrible live band. They don't even get what makes their records great - ie basic instrument separation and no clowinng.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:16am OM:

had this been a real emergency YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:16am Cecile:

they could take some lessons from Kylesa or Mastodon.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:16am Mark:

try 3 asterisks for the password that always works for me
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:16am Jenniqua:

Ken - can we make your rant about the password be the emergency broadcast message? I'd rather listen to that when the world goes to hell.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:17am Robert:

Do cookie monsters vomit frequently?
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:17am Dan B From Upstate:

You could play the DirecTV EAS song. Didn't they play "Paparazzi" by Lady Gaga?
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:18am Cookie Monsters:

When we puke, it's just cookie dough again. No problem.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:18am (~_^) fofo:

  Wed. 11/16/11 11:19am Cecile:

the dude from Immortal sounds like Popeye. I love it.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:21am Cecile:

well, my search for the great English rapper continues...
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:22am (~_^) fofo:

Cecile,
Why you relate to Popeye/Olive Oil? I still don't get the connection. Is it like an inside joke? o_O
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:22am Robert:

I've got a Little Golden 78 of Jack Mercer (the usul voice of Popeye) singling "I'm Popeye The Silor Man".
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:23am (~_^) fofo:

Cecile,

Google Eminem.

You are welcome.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:24am Robert:

Too many crumbs under my "a' key?
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:24am Mark:

(Eminem is English???)
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:24am Cecile:

No, I love Popeye and Olive Oyl. Popeye is awesome, "I yam what I yam and that's all that I yam."

LOLOLOLOL! *wipes eyes* No, I mean like London English. The English version of someone like Irish rapper RiRa. You know, good.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:25am AnAnonymousParty:

Van Halen had a clause in their contract that there could be no brown Eminems in their dressing room.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:28am Cookie Monsters:

Hey, are those the Eminems with nuts inside?
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:29am dc pat:

fortunately there aren't any brown Eminems
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:29am (~_^) fofo:

Cecile, Hmm...An English version of the Real IRA. Sounds interesting. Do you have any other lead?
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:30am Mark:

Those Eminems with pretzels inside suck
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:31am ?:

professor elemental
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:31am Cecile:

I like the eminems with coconut.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:32am (~_^) fofo:

Oh, guys, don't mock Eminem. You know? Marshall Matters.

  Wed. 11/16/11 11:33am Brown Eminems:

We were almost the opening act for Van Halen. Stupid laywers.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:33am Mark:

I gotta go for Eminems with peanuts
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:34am dc pat:

I'm with BSI, or Bob Log II or Bloodshot Bill (who I saw last night and he ruled)
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:34am Van Halen:

@Brown Eminems: Might as well Jump!

Dear FCC, If I didn't pay attention to the EAS, how did it work as an Alert???
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:51am Mark:

gotta disagree re commas and periods
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:51am Carmichael:

When did Shane McGowan join the Replacements?
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:51am AnAnonymousParty:

Somehow I've always suspected in a real emergency that would trigger a national EAS alert, we'd hear the EAS tones and then silence as the EMP takes out every non-hardened electronic device.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:52am seang:

everything you dream of is right in front of you
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:52am Ken:

more...reverse cowgirl.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:54am Reality Check:

EAS is a 1950s setup that just can't be made relevant to seurity problems that would occur now. But people somewhere are getting paid government salaries and bennies to work on it and oversee it, so it will never die.
  Wed. 11/16/11 11:54am #workfare:

hey @sainsburys "live well for less" like on thin air when you are on #workfare? SLAVE DRIVERS - I WONT BUY FROM YOU!
