Has everyone else been abducted?
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 12:18am Joe McG:

Outta sight, outta space!
  Sun. 8/5/12 12:20am Chop Scott:

I welcome the funk, and any abduction to take me away from my funk.
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 12:22am Joe McG:

Don't be in a funk, Chop Scott! Free your mind and you know the rest.
  Sun. 8/5/12 12:23am Chop Scott:

Joe- I'm following you my Friend!
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 12:25am Joe McG:

Ha ha! I'll do my best not to pied piper us into oblivion.
  Sun. 8/5/12 12:26am Chop Scott:

Oblivion is fine with me...
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 12:26am Joe McG:

Now that you mention it....!
  Sun. 8/5/12 12:34am jeff-m:

Hey Joe, sounding awesome.
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 12:37am Joe McG:

jeff-m! Thanks, man. Sorry I missed you guys the other night. I hear Blumin was hanging from the ceiling fan.
  Sun. 8/5/12 12:42am Joe D.:

yeah Joe! Lame D's!
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 12:43am Joe McG:

Duffy! They keep recording great tunes like this and I'm going to join that fucking flexidisc club.
  Sun. 8/5/12 12:44am jeff-m:

i think he might have been exaggerating. maybe while my back was turned.
  Sun. 8/5/12 12:46am Joe D.:

oh man what a good segue too. Yeah I know right? We've got a mogul on our hands.

PS. I am alive.
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 12:50am Joe McG:

After all that FourLoko, I'm really relieved! HB, Joe D!
  Sun. 8/5/12 12:52am Parq:

Oh man, this "Mystery" is such a great song.
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 12:54am Joe McG:

Hey, Parq! Nice to see you at this hour!
  Sun. 8/5/12 1:06am Chop Scott:

Oblivion sounds pretty damn good!
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 1:07am Joe McG:

Verlaine is catching hell and here I am catching heaven.
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 1:12am Joe McG:

People always talk forever about Verlaine and Lloyd on guitar but I love the way Billy Ficca plays.
  Sun. 8/5/12 1:35am jeff-m:

never knew this was the commodores...
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 1:36am Joe McG:

I think it was also in "Looking for Mr. Goodbar"!
  Sun. 8/5/12 1:46am Matt from Springfield:

Whoa Joe! Bobby Wo!
Always LOVE Bobby Womack! How's everyone doin' tonight?
  Sun. 8/5/12 1:47am dvd:

just checkin' in here, thanks for the tunes joe!
  Sun. 8/5/12 1:48am 12539:

Barry White wouldn't have given up so easily.
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 1:49am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt! Hey, dvd! Nice to see you folks. @12539: Barry White wouldn't ever have to prove his love. It's so obviously THERE!
  Sun. 8/5/12 1:54am Matt from Springfield:

Never have to prove, when deep bass words of love ooze out of your mouth with every syllable...
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 1:55am Joe McG:

I think Lester Bangs once referred to Barry's "ooze pooze."
  Sun. 8/5/12 1:55am Matt from Springfield:

Don't know if it's these IE updates (as some suggested) or some other issue, but the WFMU comment boards were fixed for a few days, now I'm having to manually refresh this page to get new comments again! Any clue what's doing that?
  Sun. 8/5/12 1:57am 12539:

It's working fine for me (Firefox).
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 1:57am Joe McG:

@Matt: No, I'll have to check, Matt. Is anyone else having this trouble?
  Sun. 8/5/12 1:59am dvd:

fine in chrome
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:00am Matt from Springfield:

Yeah! Sam and Dave! And this one's new to me too, thanks!

Others have mentioned the same problem in comments throughout this week, the last few days it was okay for me, but now I need to refresh (F5) to get new comments.
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:04am Matt from Springfield:

Probably produced by "pot" indeed!
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:08am Matt from Springfield:

Now that's easy: produced by Sarge! For 6 hours!
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:09am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, a whole symphony filling in for Jim Price!
Hmm, must be pre-recorded if Scott won't be in right after...
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 2:13am Joe McG:

Of course not, Matt! We're all coming in special for it!
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:13am Matt from Springfield:

All right! Just upped the ante: finishing the night off with Millie!!
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 2:14am Joe McG:

Damn right!
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:14am Brian in UK:

Hi Joe, Matt, dvd, 12539.

Now this is how to wake up a Sunday morn.
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:15am Matt from Springfield:

That's it! Charlie of Busy Doing Nothing just played this!
"Call me a nymphomaniac but I FEEL LIKE makin' love!"
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 2:15am Joe McG:

Charlie's too brilliant for his own good. Love that guy's show!
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:18am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Brian! Now I bet you "feel like wakin' up!"
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:21am Matt from Springfield:

:D Any time Millie starts a spoken interlude, you know it's gettin' GOOD!!! :D
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:22am Joe D.:

this is the most important advice I have ever heard in my life
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:26am Joe D.:

OH DAG THIS WAS SAMPLED BY THE COUP
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:27am Matt from Springfield:

Sampling Miami's own KC!
@Joe D: Millie Jackson is a national treas--she should be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 2:33am Joe McG:

No doubt!
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:39am Matt from Springfield:

Nothing to say?! Say WHAT??!
This is where the "rap" comes in, you know I love those parts!
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 2:42am Joe McG:

Damn, I just looked at the clock--I only have 20 minutes of Millie left!
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:44am Matt from Springfield:

Oh no!
Well, plan for an All-Millie show sometime! ;)
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:45am 12539:

Chance to do a living tribute!
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 2:46am Joe McG:

I have to try to get a radio interview and build a whole show around it.
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:47am Brian in UK:

Nice one, Joe.
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 2:48am Joe McG:

Thanks, Brian, thought you'd like that one.
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:49am Matt from Springfield:

Prove that you're probably her biggest champion on US radio today--see if you can get the WFMU exclusive! That would be fabulous!
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:51am Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha, "very 1979" sound to this record!
Isaac did some great covers though--do you remember playing his version of Paul McCartney's "My Love"?
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:55am Matt from Springfield:

WHOA COUNTRY MILLIE!! Thanks Joe, we MUST hear more from this!!
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 2:56am Joe McG:

Thanks everyone for listening and indulging my Millie Jackson jones. Have a great week, see you next time!
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:56am 12539:

Great show, Joe.
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:57am Matt from Springfield:

"You can kiss either toilet-sittin ass!!" :)
  Sun. 8/5/12 2:57am Matt from Springfield:

Yes, thank you Joe! That was fun!
See everyone later!
