Listener comments!

  Thu. 12/15/11 6:01am Chuck:

Morning!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:01am Meghan:

Morning all!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:02am Dave B:

you talkin' to me?

http://goo.gl/3vBrO
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:03am Chuck:

I so want to go back to sleep. Nothing against the show, but I'm resin-ed out...
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:04am Meghan:

My place was freezing.... so I wanted to stay in bed to stay warm!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:06am fred von helsing:

yackety-yack, I came back
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:06am Chuck:

There is heat in the FMU studio, yes?
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:06am Meghan:

Oh there is always heat here in Studio B! Sometimes too much!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:07am fred von helsing:

Playlist theme error? "Talk Talk Talk..... All you do it Talk" => "IS talk" ?
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:08am Chuck:

Waits and Midler? Whoda thunk it....
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:09am Meghan:

Oops! No coffee yet.... and none around here.... so get used to lots of errors like that!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:09am Dave B:

And Good Morning Meghan, Chuck, Fred and lurkers...

Hey Fred v... Have you seen this movie:

http://www.oscilloscope.net/films/film/41/Rare-Exports-A-Christmas-Tale

I brought it up during Ken's Krampus show yesterday.
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:11am Chuck:

How many "Talking 'whatever' Blues" songs did you come across, Meg? Bunches I'm sure...
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:11am lurker:

*lurrrrrrrrk*
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:12am fred von helsing:

Krampus seems overdone, but Rare Exports, well, they circulated a 15m version a year or two ago and yup you bet, Santa-wrangling is a real man's job !
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:13am Dave B:

Krampus has jumped the shark. Next year I suggest we raise awareness of Zwarte Piet
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:13am fred von helsing:

No coffee yet ? Poor DJ !
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:14am fred von helsing:

Talk NORMAL !
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:14am Dave B:

Let me know if you need me to bring anything.. besides coffee...
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:15am pierre:

Bonjour listeners !!
Bonjour Meghan !!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:15am Chuck:

I'd still be unconscious if not for the cup beside me....
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:15am fred von helsing:

Take her a bucket of benzedrine - the thoughtful gift for early morning DJs !
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:15am Meghan:

ha! hadn't heard of that one.... I listened to Krampus twice though. I love the Krampus show. It's the reason why I would never do an Xmas show. Ken does it perfectly
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:17am Meghan:

Dave, want to find songs for the odd months and I'll find them for the even? I'll give you the updated list tonight (after I finish it!)
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:18am Dave B:

Yesterday at work I had to work the booth during the marketing department holiday party. Yule Log projections, some slides for a new campaign, and pipe "holiday" music into the room. I was SO tempted to cue the Krampus show up.

Send that list Meghan!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:20am Dave B:

I'll be in town this weekend, and can hit up the Performing Arts Library (besides my "normal" methods of finding stuff)
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:27am Chuck:

Weird, I was just gonna ask if you were this song made the play list!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:28am Chuck:

"you were this song"!? Jeez, I am still asleep...
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:34am fred von helsing:

"New Wave doesn't mean shit" - Kickboy Slash
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:36am Dave B:

This Edmunds song is timeless.
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:39am fred von helsing:

"I have excellent news for the world. There is no such thing as new wave. It does not exist. It’s a figment of a lame c#nt’s imagination. There was never any such thing as new wave. It was the polite thing to say when you were trying to explain you were not into the boring old rock ‘n’ roll, but you didn’t dare to say punk because you were afraid to get kicked out of the fucking party and they wouldn’t give you coke anymore."
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:41am dirty old man:

Wow, what a sultry "welcome back"
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:41am tramshed:

they sound like Reverend Horton Heat
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:42am Dave B:

Pluto was gipped....
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:43am fred von helsing:

Nothing says you care about quality radio like benzedrine
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:43am fred von helsing:

Pluto?! DON'T GET ME STARTED
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:44am Elwyn:

Hey everyone!

Whoa! Tom Waits and Bette Midler? No way! Awesome!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:46am Dave B:

I always thought the "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea" font should be conscripted for a logo...

Pierre? hint, hint...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Voyage_to_the_Bottom_of_the_Sea.jpg
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:47am fred von helsing:

It sounds like our DJ needs intravenous sumthin-or-nuther
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:48am Dave B:

howdy Elwyn
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:48am fred von helsing:

Underwater Theme Park: An Irwin Allen production, filmed in Aquarama ! Stay tuned for more adventures !
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:49am Meghan:

Good evening Elwyn!

Oh nice Fred!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:49am Chuck:

Wow! I thought the exact same thing when the subject was brought up, Dave!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:50am Dave B:

great/sick minds think alike Chuck and Fred!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:51am Meghan:

Fred, I felt the same way about "alternative". When it became mainstream, it was no longer an alternate to mainstream music!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:51am Chuck:

Meghan would have to find a way to kill Kowalski every week though....
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:52am pierre:

@ Dave B : i totally hear you there, (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-nAfcNJZF7FA/TsRtI8rZruI/AAAAAAABcMg/1ePQIXy4vTo/s1600/21_20thousandleagues_aofischer.jpg) i'm actually working on it as i listen to the show.
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:53am fred von helsing:

... and then the Poseidon capsizes and meghan's listnership comes hurtling thru the plate glass and into another dimension - a dimension of sight, sound, dead Kowalskis, tripped-out Ken remotes, and leftover lasagne
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:53am Dave B:

whatchutalkinbout Chuck?

http://www.vttbots.com/Graphics/kowalski_at_sonar_painted.jpg
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:55am Chuck:

Ha! Oh, Dave!
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:56am tramshed:

what year is this, this is great
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:57am Dave B:

that "Destroy That Boy!" compo is great....
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:57am Meghan:

Tramshed- for the song or the album? It's all songs from 1953-55
  Thu. 12/15/11 6:59am Dave B:

Destroy That Boy - (from Amazon description)

'Destroy That Boy!' - a riot of bodacious all-girl bands, femme frat-rock, axe-backed babes and other similar females of the species from the 1963-1970 timescale - is the eagerly awaited follow-up to Ace's big-selling 'Girls With Guitars' set of 2004
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:09am Al from England:

pluto just made me smile :)
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:11am Elwyn:

@Meghan: Would you play Rush if all of them died in a "tragic" plane accident?
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:13am fred von helsing:

an "accident" heh heh heh ...
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:18am Dave B:

RIAA!!!!

Excellent!
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:18am Elwyn:

Recording Industry Association of America?
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:18am Chuck:

Wow, quite a while since a two-fer....
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:21am Dave B:

Highly recommend RIAA's mash ups...

Find 'em here: http://www.m-1.us/

Dirt Bacharach is my favorite
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:21am Dave B:

Three-fer Thursday!
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:21am Elwyn:

Before Evil Brady can scold me for not using Google:
http://www.m-1.us/techxotica.html
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:22am fred von helsing:

RIAA, Spotify, these are a few of the things that make the world a bad place for indie musicians
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:24am Elwyn:

Heh!

http://mrfab-riaa.blogspot.com/2011/08/every-mashup-sounds-like-dare.html
Need something witty from Evil Brady.
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:26am Dave B:

I have nothing witty to add. I have much respect for RIAA and the like.
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:27am Dave B:

(RIAA the mashup artist, that is...)
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:31am fred von helsing:

Ah yes OK! I meant RIAA the burocratic monster that attacks teenage kids with multimillion dollar claims
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:31am Elwyn:

Heh. I always love that line "You know you're semi-good lookin'"

If we get the Minutemen cover, we'd sort of have a three-fer set!
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:44am fred von helsing:

jest call me fred van halensing
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:49am Chuck:

Speaking of voting let me present this: I've been working every single day for the past 12 freaking weeks. Do I blow off working today? Yeah or nay?
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:50am Elwyn:

@Chuck: Blow it off! You're worse than my sister and she's a doctor!
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:51am Meghan:

Ummmm.... that is a no brainer! YES! Chuck, you need to take some time for yourself! Resin's can wait! Go treat yourself to a nice day. That is an order!
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:54am Chuck:

I'm so torn. I still have 4 resins to cast and the chasing/patina for a total of 8. But I've got new toys that I haven't had time to play with. A bass amp and a vintage Yamaha DX7 keyboard!
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:55am Dave B:

take some time for yourself Chuck.
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:55am Meghan:

I guarantee the people that are having you do this took some time off for themselves.... and I am sure they expect you to do the same. And if not, well fuck em!
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:57am Chuck:

Okay, NO work today! (Though I know I'm gonna end up feeling guilty about it later.)
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:57am Elwyn:

@Chuck: Drink and party to get over that!
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:59am fred von helsing:

Yo Chuck, it's beer o'clock !
  Thu. 12/15/11 7:59am Meghan:

Guilt for taking ONE day out of 12 weeks to yourself? The money/work isn't worth it if you can't take any time to spend it on yourself! You should feel righteous and say- screw you all!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:00am fred von helsing:

Wait a minute there Mr Allen, what if Underwater Theme Park gets eaten by the giant sea monster ??
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:01am Chuck:

It's always "beer o'clock", fred! As my departed friend Tommy used to put it: "Is it time to start drinking yet?" Answer: YES!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:01am pierre:

aaaaaawwww… cool.
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:02am pierre:

@Meghan : what make you decide to go with this one (Everybody's Talkin') ?
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:03am Elwyn:

I <3 this set!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:04am Meghan:

Pierre.... it was hard. I had the original and a couple covers. But I think Dean Wareham does such a nice job with it and makes it sound like the original....
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:05am fred von helsing:

As my grandfather always used to say, "It's 5 o'clock *somewhere*".
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:07am Chuck:

WooHOO!!! The TUBES!!!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:07am Dave B:

There's a clock in the hallway at work that's been stuck at 11:05 for years. Someone slapped a post-it note on it saying "accurate twice a day"
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:08am Chuck:

This one gets turned up to 11!!!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:09am fred von helsing:

Speak to your inner Tubes
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:10am Dave B:

totally tubular!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:13am earwax:

How old are you in Pluto years?
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:15am Dave B:

Underwater Death Pool Party!

Let's hope Elwyn's Rush hex doesn't come true!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:15am Parq:

Funny -- while I defer to Meg's tagging the Tubes as 80s music, I always think of them as a 70s band. I still remember when they played the Hasty Pudding club at Harvard.
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:16am Meghan:

Well, that tells you how old I am! Plus I was very influenced by the music and videos.
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:16am Dave B:

@earwax...
0.188 Plutonian years...

http://www.exploratorium.edu/ronh/age/
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:17am Chuck:

Yes, Parq, totally a 70s group. They did a tour with Be Bop Deluxe one year. (Be Bop was their opening band.)....
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:18am Dave B:

APB was AWESOME on Evan's show a few months back....
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:20am Dave B:

switching over to the iPhone, and walking to work. Have a great week people.

Meghan - please include the gameplan for the pre-record show with the hit list...
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:21am Chuck:

I have a sneaking suspicion that Talk Talk will appear in this set...
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:21am Meghan:

Will do! Promise!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:23am anne:

hello Meghan dear!!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:24am Meghan:

Hello Anne! How goes it far away?
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:25am Jim Devoid:

Huskers just made my morning! Thanks, Meghan.
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:26am Parq:

@Chuck, 8:17 -- oh man, I wish I coulda seen that show!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:26am anne:

going good! winter isn't too harsh...yet. everybody here says "you just wait..." uh oh. how goes it over there? miss you and Bosco!!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:27am Meghan:

Yeah.... You'll get your misery in the month of February! I remember one week not leaving my house unless I really really had to!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:33am Marmalade Kitty:

any idea where that guitar sampled from?
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:33am anne:

where were you when you were there/here?
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:34am Meghan:

I went to college there (School of the Art Institute of Chicago) graduated in 1996

Not a clue MKitty....
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:34am mill creek:

Ah the gentle tones of jon Spencer
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:35am mill creek:

Ah the dulcet tones of askil Adkins
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:36am Dave B:

That sample sounded like American Woman
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:36am Meghan:

I have an answer for you MKitty.... the joys of interwebs!

http://blogs.seattleweekly.com/reverb/2011/08/song_interview_jon_spencer.php
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:36am mill creek:

I'm tapdancin on the kitchen table
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:37am Meghan:

Go Jesco! I mean Mill Creek!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:37am mill creek:

Now I'm chasin invisible arkansaw chugabugs
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:41am Elwyn:

  Thu. 12/15/11 8:42am glenn:

  Thu. 12/15/11 8:43am glenn:

  Thu. 12/15/11 8:46am Chuck:

I was waiting for another guitar spazz-out at the end....
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:49am Dave B:

Porographers remind me of xtc
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:50am Chuck:

Oh, I am so playing with my DX7 today! More 80s synth sounds please!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:51am Elwyn:

Ha ha! Bob Mould's mirror sunglasses!
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:51am Flashback Bjorn:

Ohyea bring in the shoulder pads
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:51am Dave B:

During my walk to work, there's this blabber mouth next to me on her cell

I want to tell her to shut the fuck up
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:52am glenn:

so? tell her. i would.
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:54am Chuck:

Alternately, "SHUT YOUR FESTERING GOB!", works well, Dave...
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:54am glenn:

take out your "shut up you stupid yappy twat" hockey stick and beat her with it.
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:56am Simon:

late greetings from Dusseldorf. Finally listening live for the first time in weeks. I'm with a guy who just rented a flat in Brighton. "turns out the landlord is a famous musician" he just told me. "you ever heard of Nick Cave?"
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:56am Meghan:

hahahahahahaha..... no never heard of him.... *drool*
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:57am Dave B:

Schadenfreude - and gravity won. Walking and talkin was not her forte
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:58am Chuck:

Gravity always wins, DB! heh...heh...
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:58am Simon:

I'm trying to imagine a conversation with the lead singer of the Birthday Party 30 years ago; "One day mate, you'll be renting out Regency apartments in the English Riviera."
  Thu. 12/15/11 8:59am glenn:

yes. don't forget to pay the gravity bill. the gravity company doesn't like it when you don't pay.
