Hello all from Westport point, ma. Hi bw! Nice surprise having you here this morning!
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:23am still b/p:

I seeeee...special gift baskets this year FULL of CCTs given to friends at holidays and placed in celebrity dressing rooms. Also, CCTs by the hundreds in large sculptural assemblages at weddings and catered affairs.

Oh, this Taragana Pyjarama is nice. Exactly my mood this morning.
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:41am karao:

I WAS THINKING OF ALL OF YOU
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:44am Chhhh:

Ah. This is substantially more relaxing than what is usually on at this hour.
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:45am B23:

COULD EVERYONE PLEASE HOLD IT DOWN??? I'M TRYING TO LISTEN TO MUSIC!!!
Avatar Wed. 8/22/12 9:45am bw:

that's because ken knows how to get a good night's sleep

  Wed. 8/22/12 9:51am paul:

what's this e2-e4 remix you're talking over?
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:52am amEdeo:

QUIET SHOUTING, QUIET SHOUTING. THIS IS ALL VERY RELAXING BW.
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:53am jan:

Ben- your "fill in" is great. Sadly a reminder of your much missed music broadcast
when you were a scheduled music program on WFMU. Perhaps doing this show will
tempt you to come back for a regular music show.
  Wed. 8/22/12 9:56am Vincent Price:

...for it is a human number.

Otherwise, it's toGA...toGA...TOGA!

Great track indeed!

Thus say Wikipedia...In 2007 Stefan was noted by the British press as being the "...future of Brit pop," and "...sleazy and deeply debauched..." yummy

Noveller is supposed to be on 7SD
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:31am Parq:

Benjamin, they were tyring to prove that, and the point is that, doing a feature about supermodels means sky-high ratings.
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:33am timotato:

This background music could be porn music. Maybe the foreplay section of the video, me thinks.
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:33am B23:

yeah...

Why no love for us bots? We have opinions too. For example, Hot singles in your area want to meet.

  Wed. 8/22/12 10:36am Andrew Waterloo:

Background music is more fitting for a tutorial on oscilloscopes than porn.
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:38am ~L:

Start a long play list and run out and put a load of wash in! These look to be near the station. It would be very Ken-like.

I only have sheets and towels and socks its terrible

I can't remember the last time I deliberately visited the Huffington Post. Usually when I show up there I curse Tiny.Url and leave.
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:42am robyn:

i thought i recognized the loop from TMI. btw, I listened to your Chester Brown show the other day. guy is living the dream (...I guess) although his obliviousness to possible sex slavery is...I don't know, eye roll worthy.
  Wed. 8/22/12 10:44am Sam:

I liked the story about the babushka vodka bottle shattering at Lenin's tomb

I love the smell of bus seats in the morning

this daughn gibson is great.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:03am ~L:

Oh, you could just go shopping then. Or, what sizes are you, have local listeners bring you some clothes.

BW, in your recent TMI I really enjoyed the story about the woman translating between john & hooker. But I kept thinking to myself. " Jeez, these Russians don't mess around. This john will eventually find out he owes the hooker a boatload of rubles. And if he refuses to pay... He's in t-r-o-u-b-l-e !"

haha! yes thanks L!

Holy hell, I missed stefan zeniuk! He was in my dream a few nights ago. I used to hang with him back in the day.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:04am robyn:

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD! JOIN HANDS! JOIN HANDS!
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:04am Cecile:

who would have thought Mouth and McNeil, Norman Greenbaum and "Stoned" from the basement tapes would form the basis of a subgenre in the modern world?
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:05am Cecile:

was he sleazy and deeply debauched, Mike East?
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:07am Cheri Pi:

Mouth and McNeil are making a huge comeback, at least in my twisted little corner of the world.

  Wed. 8/22/12 11:16am Cecile:

Could it be the 15 straight cliches in a row in the lyrics? It didn't move me, but I salute you for playing it.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:19am Andrew Waterloo:

Linen?
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:19am Cecile:

yeah, linens?
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:20am Mike East:

@Cecile - No, I wouldn't describe him as such. He was usually very polite and excited. I'm sure drank plenty, but we all did back then. Almost always had his sax with him.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:20am Cecile:

sounds like a nice guy.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:22am robyn:

tonight is the night we find out - do the ladies love "lulu"?
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:24am Mike East:

@Cecile - he was! A scroll up on the comments made me check his wiki page- apparently he also plays with Jesse Selengut in Tinpan, who rents small PA systems from me every few months.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:25am incandissonance:

Doubt TSA would use the term "linens". Perhaps "bedclothes"? "Sir, may I inquire why you have an assortment of putrid bedclothes in your attache."
Avatar Wed. 8/22/12 11:25am bw:

putrid!!! ouch sad but true!
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:26am Cheri Pi:

I just read someone's rider and they have "Condoms Magnum" listed on it. Really? you need to the promoter to provide your condoms? ugh.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:28am sfrances:

As a huge TMI fan, I'm really enjoying hearing your music choices.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:29am Cecile:

you should send a hi via the speaker guy. It's nice to keep in touch with nice people.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:29am Cecile:

man, the tee pee label does bring the rock consistently.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:32am Mike East:

@Cecile - I definitely will. Jesse Selengut seems like good people, too. One of the only clients I give crazy low rates too. Manners go a long way with me.
  Wed. 8/22/12 11:33am Cecile:

Good, Mike.

popeye!
