Jorma Kaukonen pronounced as Yor-muh Kow-kuh-nen
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:24am buısןǝɥ uoʌ pǝɹɟ:

Note to listeners: DJ terms like "south" and "north" mean "south jersey" and "northern jersey".
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:26am Dave B:

right around the line of Taylor Ham/Pork Roll demarkation FvH
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:26am Meghan:

RRN- NICE! I could use that more often for all my mishaps of pronunciation
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:27am buısןǝɥ uoʌ pǝɹɟ:

So what do they say in central jersey ?
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:28am buısןǝɥ uoʌ pǝɹɟ:

Yeah RR has it right. Stress is always on first syllable. Vowels are mostly like Spanish. "y" is like German "ü", "ä" like "cat", "ö" kinda weird but close-ish to "u" in "push" & "pull".

Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:32am Dave E:

Meghan, that sounds interesting . . .pepper, salt and ketchup too?
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:32am Chuck:

They have no Taylor Ham south of the Mason-Dixon line. They don't even know what it is...
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:33am Chuck:

They don't have Kaiser Rolls either...
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:33am Meghan:

I guess sauce is ketchup?
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:36am Dave E:

or gravy?
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:37am Dave B:

lumpy gravy
  Thu. 6/13/13 6:37am Kostas:

WOW! That English Beat tune is just amazing!

lumpy gravy with flies
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:38am Chuck:

Eww, Dave B! I hate lumpy gravy!
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:38am Dave E:

I wonder if gravy would work on a poison ivy rash?
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 6:40am Dave E:

Nope, needs more lumps.

Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 7:14am Dave B:

p.s. "Car Thief" was the track...
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 7:17am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I wishes ya could Rate tracks (like I did on LaunchCast before they killed it dead)
- not just ☆ them - 1-5 even, if not 1-100%
...& a PopUpPlayer on everybody's Profile to hear 'em, & you could Rate for your own Player from there...levels of DJing...I wish I wish...meh...
...You could Rate DJs - & Programs, & Shows ('Episodes') - & Friends...oh - it could be mean!...

Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 7:26am Dave E:

Talking about RR and tracks - I'm so confused

Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 7:34am Chuck:

I was wondering a short while ago if this Dylan track would make the show. A long cut it is...
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 7:38am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Placebo have a song called Spite & Malice that has some amazing card game references "Jacks stand in line, they've clubbed themselves to death" However the chorus is 'Revolution: Dope, Guns, Fucking in the streets" so it's probably not too radio friendly
