  Wed. 2/15/12 9:56am MIchael:

I like it---then again I grew up with Martyn Green's voice, and like it, and Ms ANdrews is at least on key. As for a creator's horror, I basically don't care, Moondog's being safe from all cares now---"Watchman" is a good movie, and "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" a good _terrible_ movie, despite what Mr Moore may think---I don't pay attention to soi-disant wizards anyway.

The playlist is actually about 3 songs ahead of what I'm hearing on the Windows stream, or am I just buffered and behind? We just got new machines at the office with Windows 7 and all kinds of weird shit keeps happening.

Imagine hearing Bieber and Miley Cyrus hits in Rite-Aid 40 years from now.
  Wed. 2/15/12 10:55am Cecile:

that and anything by EWF and Heatwave and Funkadelic.

Hey, that 2/10 Tonetta photo of Alizee with the power chord guitar backing band...watch the video! There are no guitars to be heard. The backing band's function is to stand around with mute instruments and clothes on for contrast.
  Wed. 2/15/12 10:58am Cecile:

I am buying that as we speak.

bye dcp!
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:02am richard:

the best version of Got to be Real is a very early rap by Brother D & The Collective called How We Gonna Make The Black Nation Rise. You can find it on a Soul Jazz (again!) comp Big Apple Rappin'

I love Jersey?
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:04am Cecile:

I got the CDs and there is also a book (sold separately)
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:05am Skirkie:

Joke's on you Ken, I live alone. No one will be concerned about MY well being.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:07am Larry:

Is the bed music by Can?
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:07am bill:

Disco's OK for 70s nostalgia, but I prefer Harmonia
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:10am drr:

wow, this is really cool (Jet Ear Party)
Avatar    Wed. 2/15/12 11:12am Ken:

Good guess Larry, but it was not Can, it was an offshoot of Neu called Hallogallo.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:13am Carmichael:

Hi Kenneth and that-word-not-saying peoples.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:13am Larry:

Ah, thanks. I had a feeling it wasn't Can!
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:18am Mark:

who isn't sick of Snow Patrol really?
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:19am Cecile:

BELLRAYS
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:19am Carmichael:

I'm sick of the Foo Fighters. AND Snow Patrol.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:19am Glacier:

@Mark: They're really intrusive, aren't they?
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:19am ttacular:

Excellent listening.
And alll the crap, too.
Avatar    Wed. 2/15/12 11:21am Ken:

Yeah! I'm also sick of all these bands that WFMU never plays!
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:21am Nathan:

@Ken Exactly.. I don't quite understand... isn't that why we listen to WFMU?
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:23am Dan B From Upstate:

Maybe I listen to too much WFMU... Can't say I'm familiar with Snow Patrol.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:24am G:

I'm here hiding from Snow Patrol and Foo Fighters and every other way overplayed and worn-out group/song. I accidentally glimpsed Foo Fighters at the Grammys b/c my gf wanted to see Jennifer Hudson sing Whitney Houston.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:24am Nathan:

Actually, Pseu has played Snow Patrol more than a few times and Joe Belock (of all people) once.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:25am G:

Nathan is on "Snow Patrol Watch" :-)
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:25am G:

Snow Patrol Patrol!
Avatar    Wed. 2/15/12 11:25am Ken:

What's everbody;s favorite Snow Patrol song? How about some Foster the People?!
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:26am 67tele:

careful, John Cook! That's a nice tie, you're certainly going to ruin it!!!
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:26am tusk89:

ken, please play that old white guy who closed the grammys.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:27am Cecile:

I like some Foo Fighters songs. And i would go and have a drink with Dave any time. Not my favorite band, but they're a'ight.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:27am SirTophamHatt:

Show's great today, listening & whistling while I work. GIFS of happiness. Can I request The Shirts 'Laugh and Walk Away' or somesuch?
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:27am Nathan:

Yellow Snow Patrol...
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:27am Mark:

I don't know, I was referencing what Mark E Smith was gurgling about Snow Patrol. Don't know if I would know a Snow Patrol song if I fell over it
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:28am Carmichael:

I actually enjoyed FTP's performance at the Grammys. (the Beach Boy's Wouldn't It Be Nice). Other than that, me no like.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:28am G:

Snow P's highest charting and most overplayed tune is Chasing Cars. Wikipedia says it went triple platinum in Australia. Which of their tunes is most annoying is a more subjective metric.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:29am bill:

OMG when I was a teenager stationed in Frankfurt my German teacher tried teaching us that song - "so oder so oder anders komm so wie es kommt so is est recht ..."

Hello and welcome to Snow Patrol team! In these highlands covered with snow, near to a holiday resort, we play snowballs with people who came here to have a rest from their everyday life and office routine. And from now, you’re one of us!
Avatar    Wed. 2/15/12 11:31am Ken:

I just played Snow Patrol and you all missed it!!!!
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:31am Nathan:

They stationed Teenagers in Frankfurt? Was this at the height of the Cold Pizza War?
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:31am ttacular:

<fwwwhmm>
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:31am Carmichael:

Ken, every week you seem to bring some sort of Nazi/Eastern European uniforms to the playlist. You are a fashion hound, sir.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:34am G:

Barry needs Tums
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:35am fofo (-:

I liked the JC Satan song. New for me!
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:35am bill:

Nathan, haha, of course it was my father who was in the military, I just tagged along. Not surprisignly it was set up so that Americans never had to interact with any Germans if they didn't want to.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:36am qiz:

What is that awesome background music?
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:36am Dan B From Upstate:

Oh, that's Snow Patrol? Um.... I kinda like that song. I look forward to being pelted.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:37am fofo (-:

well..It didn't hurt.

Cub Scouts are usually 6 - 9, Boy Scouts 10 - 17, ugh, worst years of my life...
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:38am G:

The bed music is Barry White, seemingly a 45 played at 33.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:39am G:

Show me the melody for this.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:40am Nathan:

@Bill I'm a military brat myself... though we managed to stay in one place during my pop's 20 year service. That's kind've messed up though.. would think that would be the advantage of serving in a foreign country would be exposure to local culture/education. But I suppose most military bases are set up to provide literally everything a family would need.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:40am F:

Hey Ken,
Did you win Valentine's Day in the end?
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:43am bill:

Nathan, how can you be a military brat and not have moved every 3 years?
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:44am fofo (-:

I don't know what is more awesome in the Leonard Cohen image. The kid holding the rocket like if it was a bazooka, or the 3-D paiting in the background.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:47am Nathan:

@Bill He spent 16 years in the Recruitment division at El Toro after his 4 years of active. Not sure really.
Avatar    Wed. 2/15/12 11:47am Ken:

F, i DID win Valentine's Day! I kicked everybody's BUTT at it. I RULE!~!!!!

Love this fuzz bass Curtis has got going.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:51am G:

Curtis Mayfield, the darker-lyriced Marvin Gaye.
  Wed. 2/15/12 11:52am fofo (-:

Look at that old record store in the Todd Rundgren image!! I thought people were telephone operators. I wonder what record shop was that.
