  Fri. 3/23/12 9:44pm G:

5 Man Electrical Band vocals sounding weirdly like Gilbert O'Sullivan...
  Fri. 3/23/12 9:46pm EastVanHalen:

Hey glenn, so it's still gorgeous out in the tdot? Something's seriously weird if you folks are gloating at us in March, instead of the other way around.
  Fri. 3/23/12 9:46pm rebec:

  Fri. 3/23/12 9:54pm mike tp:

Avatar Fri. 3/23/12 10:14pm pseu:

Felix -- if you've only ever heard of the Beatles, you'll hear that wherever you go. Shut up and listen, and learn. Fucksake.
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:15pm Eel Anus:

JK, you wanna hear NMH? Pussy.
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:16pm Felix:

Ok Pseu.
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:17pm G:

Every time johnnykevlar uses his lastfm account as his name, people rag on his lastfm music.

People apologizing to the steelfisted host. luvit.
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:28pm john:

Isn't the whole purpose of actual social media that people who aren't funny can make wisecracks all day? And if so, can we just consider this anti-social media?
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:29pm G:

Arguing won't help. Trust me. Think about what's annoying the deleter, and modify going forward for possibly better results.
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:29pm Felix:

You are great.
Thank you-
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:32pm john:

PS I'm not absolutely sure of this, but I think Curt Boettcher produced Sweet Pea for Tommy Roe. He certainly worked with him afterwards on some pretty amazing trax.
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:36pm G:

I wouldn't soundtap that.
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:37pm http://www.last.fm/user/johnnykevlar:

Yo Pseu, do you like Jellyfish?
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:38pm Barkevious Shabazz:

anything with mellotron.
Avatar Fri. 3/23/12 10:43pm pseu:

gee johnny, I have never heard of Jellyfish, DO TELL
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:49pm Newton:

Great show as always. Thanks.
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:49pm john:

Whoa. There's a guy named Jason Falkner?
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:52pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Don't look now, and someone's out-awkwarding Cheri.
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:53pm G:

Johnny, anyone doing a show like this knows Jellyfish perfectly well. If you put "Jellyfish" and "Pseu" in the WFMU site search box on the homepage, you'll see that it was the first group she played after her intro song on one of her January shows.
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:54pm http://www.last.fm/user/johnnykevlar:

1) You asked 2) Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit 3) I don't play video games 4) I never implied that you didn't know them 5) Why are you so mean? ;_;
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:56pm john:

Now, be fair. Emoticons are the lowest form of anything.
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:57pm http://www.last.fm/user/johnnykevlar:

How else would I express my feelings? I'm crying here ;_;
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:57pm glenn:

maybe, but we all use them, at least once in a while.
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:57pm channeling Scott Fahlman:

@john: :-( Meow! :-)
  Fri. 3/23/12 10:58pm Emoticon:

  Fri. 3/23/12 10:59pm Jason Taggart:

i will absolutely not swear to this but jason falkner looks a lot like a guy named jason i met in sf a long time ago who got a hair club for men VHS and taped porn on it and mailed it to Bill Cosby. this is only partially true but it's a good story and i bet there are 10 people in the universe who know what i mean.
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:02pm Clear Channel and Cumulus:

You know it, RIAA.
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:05pm 12539:

Greatly enjoying the audio part of the show, Pseu.
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:06pm Tony Burgess:

And in the comments board bar fight, Pseu's nickname is "Alex from Clockwork Orange"
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:08pm EastVanHalen:

I want a breakaway chair in the worst way.
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:12pm john:

At least now we know which one of yinz bogarted all the purple drank.
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:13pm glenn:

oh, evh - Jasmin Klair of B.C. caught smuggling cocaine in car bearing ‘SMUGLER’ plates

Great song.
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:35pm john:

Just waiting for the go-go Merzbow remixes to really strut our stuff.
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:36pm swdwards1960:

Last song was a great take on 1-2-3 Red Light.
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:38pm Empire State Human:

Great trolling tunes.
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:38pm glenn:

dear johnny ; self deprecation once in a while is acceptable, and usually welcome. self deprecation every sentence is pathetic.
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:40pm http://www.last.fm/user/johnnykevlar:

I don't have a problem with being pathetic, especially when it's the truth ;_;
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:41pm john:

Might there just be the teensiest soupçon of solipsism in that statement?
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:43pm PiLA:

the vocals are familiar ...
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:45pm PiLA:

soft cell?
  Fri. 3/23/12 11:46pm Mark Almond:

Bastard stole me name.
