Have a wonderful show Doug!

Hullo there Matt from Springfield!
I am serving a nice IPA made from Gowanus Canal water. (A bonus: It's fluorescent!)
  Tue. 11/6/12 5:45pm Van in Arlington:

Hi Matt
  Tue. 11/6/12 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Hope the vote's going well in PA--no one was turned away at the polls because they "look like a day laborer from a boardinghouse", were they? (With ref to your wife's great legal analysis article...)
  Tue. 11/6/12 5:52pm Artie:

So, what's the subject of tonight's show?
  Tue. 11/6/12 5:53pm listener james from westwood:

good evening all, and happy voting day/night, fellow americans!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/6/12 5:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Many long-time registered voters in Philly are showing up to find themselves NOT on the voter rolls. Having to vote using provisional ballots. A voting machine here in Pittsburgh was recording a vote for one candidate when pressing the button for the other. I imagine you can guess who was which. The voter took a cellphone video that's gone, as the kids say, viral.

Hi Artie!
Just taking requests (cough cough) tonight.

Hello Brother Listener James FW! Big radio bear hug to you.
  Tue. 11/6/12 5:55pm 42th:

Hello everyone.

  Tue. 11/6/12 5:59pm Van in Arlington:

Beer is back In the corner
  Tue. 11/6/12 6:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@Van: Will certainly be opening some when I get home! :)
  Tue. 11/6/12 6:02pm listener james from westwood:

i might need another hug by the end of this evening, or morning, however long it takes to glean a clean result on the vote. howdy, all!
  Tue. 11/6/12 6:06pm Matt from Springfield:

"Madam President"! I guessed you would play this when I saw the theme! One of the hits of the past year!
  Tue. 11/6/12 6:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Lee Hazlewood! Good writer, and singer!
  Tue. 11/6/12 6:12pm ndbob:

  Tue. 11/6/12 6:13pm Matt from Springfield:

@NDBob Thought this was a song-poem at first, but that's too many backing vocals and orchestration for those outfits.

Howdy ndbob!

Hope all of you guys went to vote!
  Tue. 11/6/12 6:36pm Matt from Springfield:

If you live in the Eastern Time Zone of the USA, it is 25 minutes until 7 pm, probably the closing time for your polls. If you HAVE NOT VOTED yet...DO IT! Hurry!

And when you return, make sure you throw some scratch WFMU's way.
  Tue. 11/6/12 6:38pm listener james from westwood:

hope this is the last we hear from this entitled, soulless, plastic, prevaricating motherfucker. he reminds me of the guy who laid me off.
  Tue. 11/6/12 6:39pm northguineahills:

NYC polls are open until 9pm. Walking over after I finish my tea.

Possibly the only song every to find a rhyme for Kefauver.

  Tue. 11/6/12 6:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Boy, everything was about the Twist in the early 60s...
  Tue. 11/6/12 6:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@Doug: Hip-est, most hip, not "hippie" est :)
  Tue. 11/6/12 6:50pm northguineahills:

Past elections I showed up after 8, and I didn't even have to wait in line. Showing up b/tn 8am-7pm guarentees a long line.
  Tue. 11/6/12 6:50pm listener james from westwood:

nertz, i was in the other room; did they rhyme "kefauver" with "palaver"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/6/12 6:51pm Doug Schulkind:

Apparently, it serves the purpose of some to keep some fellow citizens from voting. Should be the death penalty for that.
  Tue. 11/6/12 6:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@NGH: Wow, those are open late!

Talkin' Blues!
  Tue. 11/6/12 6:55pm northguineahills:
