Listener comments!

  Sun. 11/20/11 12:07am Holly in NC:

Hello, Joe! Happy to be here, even if only for a short tizzz....... :-)
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:10am Chop Scott:

Joe--YES! Happy be home llstening!!!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:10am Joe McG:

Hey, Holly! Nice to see you!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:10am Joe McG:

Hey, Chop Scott!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:16am G:

*There* is the love!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:18am G:

Donny died in 1979 by falling from the Essex House here in NYC.
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:19am Joe McG:

Wow, did he really? Did somebody push or was he just the victim of an accident?
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:21am G:

he neatly took the glass out of the window in his 15th floor room and was found on sidewalk, ruled suicide. so says wikipedia. i'd never known that, but saw his 1979 death date and wondered why...jesse jackson did the funeral
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:21am Holly in NC:

NOT that I'd have wanted to grow up in a ghetto, but I *am* incredibly sorry that I used to feel "Subdivisions" was a good musical representation of my (NOT) horrible life.
@G - Donny's depression & resultant suicide are a sad, sad story for real:-(
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:23am G:

sad alright :-( roberta flack was devastated and used some of his recorded tracks subsequently by building finished songs around them
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:26am Joe McG:

This is all news to me about Donnie H. What a sad story. He was so great live on that electric piana...
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:27am Holly in NC:

Thank you Joe & Ted Taylor for lightening the mood!
Bowery disco!
Tin Pan Alley Disco!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:29am Joe McG:

@Holly: I love this song!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:30am Holly in NC:

Me too :-)
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:31am Meghan:

I like whatcha doin too!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:33am Chop Scott:

Tipping a Weiss beer your way Joe!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:33am Joe McG:

Meghan! How are you this fine evening/morning? @Chop: That stuff is mighty delicious! You always know the good stuff, my friend!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:35am Meghan:

Just left a show. Saw Dave B there and he gifted me a Rash shirt that is in the Rush font... It's awesome
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:37am Joe McG:

@Meghan: Wow! I know you will wear it with pride. We're going to have to get you a "Permanent Waves" T-shirt!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:38am tomB:

Can you hear Sid Maurer sweetening the back track on that BT Express?
PS: Carlos Ward apparently still active.
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:39am Meghan:

I think I need an array of fake Rush shirts. About to take Bosco out
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:40am Holly in NC:

@Meghan -With the man, & the star? Jealous!!! :-)

Joe - You have access to a Permanent Waves shirt? Really? Really???!!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:44am Holly in NC:

Cod piece. It's called a cod piece.
And, no, you can't ;-)
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:44am Meghan:

Mr Daniel Blumin! My favorite men of the station! And I expect that outfit at the holiday party damn it!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:44am Meghan:

Mr Daniel Blumin! My favorite men of the station! And I expect that outfit at the holiday party damn it!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:50am Joe D.:

McG I'm comin to hijack yr radio, gimme some good drivin tunes.
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:50am D. Blumin:

Holly, I just wasn't sure you could say COD piece on the radio, see! Trying to protect Surface Noise from becoming a show of ill-repute!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:51am D. Blumin:

Hiya Meghan! I'm wearing it already but can't see why I can't put it back on in January...
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:52am Meghan:

Sah-weet!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:54am Mike Sin:

Blumin's cod piece is made of real cod. It's a fish 'n' chips extravaganza down there.
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:54am Joe McG:

@MIke: I always thought it was tilapia.
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:55am Holly in NC:

Yay Dan! BTW, Letha is doing MUCH better & really appreciates everyone's concern & good wishes.
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:57am Meghan:

Off to snuggle with Bosco and pass out. Night all!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:58am Holly in NC:

Last comment was in reference to Dan Melchior, not Dan[iel] Blumin. Sorry if confusing!
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:58am Joe McG:

@Meghan: Give the old boy a nudge for me.
  Sun. 11/20/11 12:59am Meghan:

Will do! I'll nudge Jeff for you as well. Hehe
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:08am Joe McG:

@Holly: Glad to hear Dan M.'s wife is feeling better! What good news.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:10am Julie:

oh i missed Meghan!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:10am Julie:

Hey there Joe!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:12am Julie:

Donny fell from the Essex House? I spent a lot of time there as a kid..wow
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:12am Joe McG:

Hey, Julie! What's up?
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:12am Holly in NC:

Must go to bed, thank you for a great show, Joe! I'll catch the rest in the archives.
And BTW, a "Permanent Waves" shirt (baseball sleeves only!) would be a most excellent dj premium...just sayin'...
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:12am Joe McG:

@Holly: Well done, thanks for hanging out! @Duffy: Any of this help you drive?
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:16am Julie:

@Joe you want JoeD to answer you as he drives? All is as it should be, hearing your show at home. was fun being there last week though!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:18am Holly in NC:

Oh dear god I LOVE this song. OK, I'm going to bed after this. Hi Julie :-)
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:18am Joe McG:

Yes! Don't crash, Joe!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:24am Julie:

Hi Holly! Goodnight! Stay up late and visit my board sometime :)
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:25am Matt from Springfield:

Hey Joe!
INTENSE Bollywood song, with that chorus, synth and strong female vocal!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:25am Julie:

The great Surface Noise car crash of 2011. It was legendary, because all walked away. Cars were totaled but radios were all mysteriously intact.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:26am Mike Sin:

Where in da hell iz everyone goin'? Single file is minutes away!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:27am Julie:

Hi there Mike!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:29am Matt from Springfield:

Sir Daniel Blumin?? I SAY!!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:29am Mike Sin:

Good morning, Julie.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:30am Matt from Springfield:

Kollywood!
(Karnataka, maybe?)
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:30am Mike Sin:

Why isn't any part of this playlist in Russian?
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:31am Julie:

hi Matt
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:31am Matt from Springfield:

@Mike: Tim was on earlier--I caught tons of Cyrillic there, per usual!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:32am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Julie!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:32am Julie:

People's asses traveling here
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:34am Mike Sin:

Salman Rushdie has a cool codpiece.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:36am Matt from Springfield:

@Mike: Some say it's actually red herring.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:36am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt! PATH = Port Authority Trans Hudson says helpful caller!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:38am Julie:

Fly Trans Hudson Authority gets you there not on time
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:39am Matt from Springfield:

It would be easier if it was "Persons Authorized To Hover"--you can get past all the red tape and lines by levitating over the Hudson.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:41am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: The Essex House is apparently still around--is that just a well known hotel in New York?
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:43am Julie:

@Matt yep. Back in the dark ages, Saturday Night Live would proudly announce their guests would stay at marriott's essex house. It's changed hands several times since.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:43am Joe McG:

Used to be a great commercial on local NY TV about the Essex House. SNL made fun of it early on.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:44am Julie:

There was a murder there a year or so ago. Some guy who worked there attacked some girl in one of the rooms.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:45am Holly in NC:

@Julie - you know I'm a religious archive listener, and I hope soon to be able to be a live listener - keep fingers crossed!
@ everyone else - forget salmon/salman, I have serious apricot pronunciation issues.
APEricot, to my mind, is NOT correct.

While I'm waiting for water to boil I may as well apologize for my horrible misuse of the possessive in an earlier comment - I plead utter exhaustion & beg for clemency.

zzzz.....good night to all!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:47am tomB:

Beehive State: Stolen from Procul Harum's "Devil Came from Kansas"? or the other way around?
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:48am Julie:

Igor Stravinsky lived there.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:48am Julie:

And I used to sit on the windowsill on the 41st floor when I was a teenager.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:48am Matt from Springfield:

Beehive State...there's some white rapper apparently from Utah calling himself "Bee Money", funny and weird!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:49am Joe McG:

@tomB: Randy may be making fun of Procol Harum as he did later with ELO. Certainly possible!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:49am Julie:

I really like this band Delta 5, I will have to check them out more.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:50am Mike Sin:

re: Essex House
Don Pardo was doing promo for Essex House on "Saturday Night Live" before that show was officially called "Saturday Night Live"!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:50am Julie:

I wonder what she found out about you
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:51am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Ever notice how some places just have a dark aura about them, even for years at a time? From Donny Hathaway's apparent suicide to that murder...like the Jews say about Tisha B'Av, bad things tend to happen then no matter what the year.

And considering all that, what a deliciously dark thing to do on the 41st floor! :)
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:52am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: ME???

@Mike: "Live from New York, it's 'Saturday Night'!" Howard Cosell evidently had a one-season show called "Saturday Night Live" at the time, so they couldn't take that title yet.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:53am Matt from Springfield:

The Teardrop Explodes on 45, impressive Joe!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:53am Julie:

Yeah it was nuts...But as you can see I didn't fall out. i also climbed up the scary dark staircases up to the very top of the building. it was a fun place for a kid.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:55am Holly in NC:

@Julie - I bet you're the best raconteur ever. You do need to move to NC!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:55am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: I sometimes like to climb up dark staircases of tall buildings :)

@Joe: The tune and subject of this song remind me of "Does Your Mama Know About Me?", sung by The Supremes, written by none other than Tommy Chong!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:55am Julie:

Joe do you just buy every old 45 you find?
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:56am Julie:

@Holly I'm thinking of it
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:56am Mike Sin:

re: The Lovelites
This single was just beggin' for limited airplay on the AM dial in 1969.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:56am Julie:

Tommy Chong?? really?
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:56am Joe McG:

@Julie: Of course not! I'm highly selective!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:56am Julie:

ROBYN!!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:57am Matt from Springfield:

You just walk out with the rest under your shirt Joe! ;)
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:57am Julie:

@Joe not saying they aren't good, you just have soooo many
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:57am Holly in NC:

ROBYN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:58am Julie:

Okay as much as I love Robyn, this is kind of horrible..in a good kind of way
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:58am Julie:

I think Robyn is in town right now actually, or soon
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:59am Brian in UK:

Mornin' Joe & chums.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:59am Matt from Springfield:

Yep, look up Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers, Chong's R&B soul band from the 60s in Vancouver. The Supremes covered that song.
  Sun. 11/20/11 1:59am Julie:

ah he's playing Freehold, NJ tonight (sunday)
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:00am Julie:

He played the Bell house tonight (saturday) darnit
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:00am Brian in UK:

Ah yes Notorious Byrd Brothers!!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:01am Joe McG:

Hey, Brian! Played Ackles last week!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:03am Holly in NC:

@Julie - I have, and like, both Groovy Decoy & Groovy Decay, even though the man himself cringes.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:03am Brian in UK:

Yes Joe, caught it on archive following a group called The Beach Boys?. Nice. We went to see Richard Buckner in Brighton so missed the programme.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:05am Julie:

And then it's back to the UK. :(
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:05am Julie:

wuthering heights! go request wuthering heights!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:05am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Holly! Your bedtime desires have surrendered under the torrent of WFMU? :)
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:05am Holly in NC:

Love Richard Buckner also. He & Robyn both put on spectacular shows!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:06am Holly in NC:

@Matt - yep. Ergo the boiling water for double strength green tea. Damn you, Joe McGasko!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:08am cheri:

joe & julie--- happy thanksgiving,,ohh btw julie is evan still cooking the turkey?? best wishes ,,night
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:08am Julie:

No Weav is filling in for Mary, I believe
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:09am Julie:

oops that is Weev
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:11am Brian in UK:

It's a really misty, spooky kind of morning. Very autuminal. Very Jimmie Spheeris.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:13am Matt from Springfield:

Cold Wave, Julie!! :D
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:14am Holly in NC:

Cure meets Bowie en France, what's not to like?
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:16am cheri:

joe & julie have fun this thankgiving..you two are the best!!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:16am tomB:

Jimmy Spheeris! Felix Cavaliere's forgotten protege and unfairly overlooked!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:17am Julie:

I don't even know Jimmy Spheeris
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:19am Brian in UK:

tomB well it was before Felix I believe. Something from Isle of View (say it fast) would be perfect for this day. Very sad he was killed on his motorbike by a drunk driver if memory serves. His MD was Becks old man.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:21am Julie:

ooooooooh I knew I was staying up late for something
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:21am ADM:

Oh syd....
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:21am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, Syd shortly after Robyn!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:22am Julie:

Did the accident happen in front of the Essex House? (just want to tie everything together)
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:22am Holly in NC:

oh, Joe, you are now officially pandering to Julie! :-)
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:22am Julie:

next thing you know he'll be getting out the Ray Davies
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:23am Julie:

You know it's so funny, I know all the Syd songs but I can match hardly any of them to the names
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:23am Holly in NC:

No, the double shot!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:24am Matt from Springfield:

@Holly: You TOO can pander to Julie! Just check out her comment board like you were intending :-)

(It IS difficult, when I catch it I usually get up early, sometimes up late from the day before, sometimes I crash early, and wake up for the show)
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:24am Holly in NC:

Or not.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:25am Julie:

This is wonderful! must be a great comp
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:25am cheri:

well joe & julie good night for real,,
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:26am Holly in NC:

"Or not" re double shot, not re Julie pandering
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:26am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Have you played "Feel"? Because I remember that beginning to "If It's In You" ("all the fives crock Henrietta" one) being attached to the end of something I heard here. My version of If It's In You begins with "Yes I'm thiiiiiiiiiiiinking of this..."
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:26am Matt from Springfield:

@Holly Don't worry, I understood!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:27am Julie:

There are so very many mixed up different versions of Syd songs, try to figure it out and you too will be schizophrenic
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:28am Matt from Springfield:

No Druids, Joe! You're just giving me a craving for more "Stonehenge"! :)
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:30am Holly in NC:

Julie -
http://spurensicherung.blogspot.com/
is where kraut! demons! kraut! was born. Really great site.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:34am Holly in NC:

Joe, that Dino Valenti was awesome
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:35am Joe McG:

@Holly: This new collection of discarded demos is pretty amazing, content-wise and sound-quality-wise
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:35am tomB:

@Joe. Keep up the Dino Valenti.
@Brian UK. Felix's connection to Jimmie Spheeris was probably thru Laura Nyro. And by "protege" I just meant that Felix was promoting JS, maybe as a producer.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:35am Brian in UK:

Did Dino write 'Hey Joe'?
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:37am Julie:

good site..can't find that particular comp but interesting stuff there, thanks Holly
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:37am Joe McG:

@Brian: I don't think so, actually.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:38am Julie:

Wasn't there a guy called Gino Valenti too?
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:39am Brian in UK:

tomB Laura was a real influence in his styling. I think he might even have shared a place with her for a while. Yeah Felix produced the second album.
Joe I was never sure.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:39am Julie:

Darn I wish Mary was there tonight
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:40am Julie:

Good for her, though, getting some sleep!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:40am Brian in UK:

Julie he worked in a pizza parlour.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:42am Julie:

mmm pizza
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:42am Joe McG:

Sorry, everyone, about mis-announcing that Mary would be on after me. Actually, she's just on tonight for Martha from 9 pm to midnight.

  Sun. 11/20/11 2:46am Brian in UK:

Was Roedelius in Cluster oh mighty oracle?
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:46am Joe McG:

@Brian: Indeed he was!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:47am #K:

She was & is the best. Actually, she was playing your show but it was difficult to pay attention on account of conversations. But I think you should know that.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:47am Julie:

Going to miss Anne :(
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:48am Joe McG:

Wow, that's so great. Glad I kept it uptempo!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:48am Matt from Springfield:

Roedelius Clusters, part of a balanced Krautrock breakfast.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:49am Joe D.:

  Sun. 11/20/11 2:49am Brian in UK:

It'll mess with your head, Matt. Eat it at 11. (volume)
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:50am #K:

  Sun. 11/20/11 2:51am Joe D.:

well keep listening! and please keep in mind that the opinions expressed are not necessarily those of the AP or WFMU
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:52am Julie:

Okay this is way too sleep-inducing
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:52am tomB:

Hey Brian! There's always been confusion about Valenti's relation to Hey Joe. In 1968, a traveler from SF told me that Valenti had sold the rights to his songs to get out of jail for knifing someone. But currently it is claimed that a lesser-known singer, Billy Roberts, had assigned the rights to Valenti to aid Valenti in his release from prison. Crosby popularized the tune in LA, having learned it pre-Byrds from Billy Roberts in SF.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:53am #K:

naturally.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:56am Brian in UK:

Talking of Dino, does anyone know the name of the Quicksilver track that contains the line '...have another hit of California sunshine' It might be something like Fresh Air.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:56am Julie:

Eager to tear apart the stars. I LOVE that name
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:56am Julie:

Not to be confused with Eager to tear apart the stairs, which is more of an incredible hulk thing.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:57am Julie:

yes Fresh Air
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:59am Matt from Springfield:

Wonderful show Joe!
Have a good night everyone!
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:59am Brian in UK:

Thanks Julie it must be 30 years since I've heard it. Try not to use these Wikiwank things.
  Sun. 11/20/11 2:59am Julie:

thank you Joe :)
  Sun. 11/20/11 3:00am Brian in UK:

Chin chin everyone.
  Sun. 11/20/11 3:06am Mike Oz:

Brian from UK, despite your aversion I recommend the very detailed Wikipedia article about "Hey Joe" which explains the Valenti connection to Billy Roberts's song.
Julie, you may be thinking of Gino Vannelli - three Billboard Hot 100 hits, 1974-78 on A&M, the poppermost of which was "I Just Wanna Stop" (#4, Dec ,78).
Thanks for the program, Joe.

I was being told to come to bed as I posted about Donnie H. I didn't realize it would be an ongoing topic and I'd gone *poof*. But you know, when someone wants you to come to bed at midnight on Saturday, you'd be stupid to say no... Checking out archives this morning...
