Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 5:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Nobody needs a freakin job more than me. Any of you freaks know of any freakin jobs out there?
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 5:55pm Doug Schulkind:

Actually, I need a fookin job. I don't have my freakin union dues paid up.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 5:58pm glenn:

Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:02pm Matt from Springfield:

@hyde: How bout a self-eff acing...okay, I'd better stop now...
@Doug: Ask James Brown there, the hardest in the show business!

So glad you're here and staying up late!
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:05pm davex:

Thanks, Doug!
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:06pm Holly in NC:

@Glenn - I bet those jobs are just playing hard to get ;-)

Woefully underemployed, I'm totally making use of my advanced degrees whilst walking other people's dogs. Will try & return before 7.

Hi Doug!

Hi Wobbly Holly!

I dig Phil Och's Joe Hill.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:07pm Doug Schulkind:

@LJFW
It beats twerking!
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:08pm Doug Schulkind:

@NGH
I dig Joe Ochs' Phil Hill.
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 6:09pm Parq:

I found my Phil on Joe freakin' Hill.
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 6:09pm listener james from westwood:

i only found out what twerking was post the kerfluffle. azathoth as my witness, i thought that word what what you called using twitter while working. "twerking."
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:10pm Doug Schulkind:

@Parq
You always pull out the blue(berry) material.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:10pm Doug Schulkind:

@LJFW
I love you for many reasons, "kerfuffle" not the least of them.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:13pm Doug Schulkind:

"Saint Pete will be the straw boss then..." Love it!

@Artie
Lingerers Anonymous folks can hang around till 7pm to see what turns up.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:17pm glenn:

i get that the koch brothers and other capitalists hate unions, but if anybody can explain to me why the common working man seems to dislike them so much, i'm all ears.
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 6:18pm listener james from westwood:

aw shucks. hey, did i add a free "l" to that word? heh, i had a few consonants to spare! anyone want to buy a vowel?
glenn: the answer is the koch bros and other capitalists, through their PR vipers.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:18pm glenn:

i'm like ljfw. i only found out that stupid dance was called twerking after the fact.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:20pm glenn:

i guess. to me, "right to work" means "right to work your ass off for nothing"
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:21pm Doug Schulkind:

West African dancers have been twerking for centuries.
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 6:26pm Parq:

Glenn, that Roxy Gordon track sounded like Gordon came out of the late 60s anti war movement. Those guys hated the unions because the unions had been successfully turned against the war protesters in particular and the young lefitists in general in the late 60s -- Richard Daley and the '68 DNC and all that.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:27pm glenn:

ooh. now that i think about it, king sonny ade has some of those dancers, so not stupid at all. it's stupid when miley cyrus does it.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:28pm Doug Schulkind:

@Parq
Roxy came out of the West Coast/Texas American Indian Movement. And all of those things you mentioned, too.
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 6:28pm listener james from westwood:

i don't have the hamstring flexure for that sort of torque.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:35pm davex:

Hey, all this music is keeping me from getting any work done!
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 6:36pm hyde:

at least this Leon Payne number is a little more optimistic than that psycho killer one
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:38pm Doug Schulkind:

Well then MY work is done, davex!

@hyde
All psycho killer no filler, here on GTDS!
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:41pm Matt from Springfield:

What's up with this Recession and all the self-serve FroYo shops that are sprouting up around here? (Appropos of nothing, natch).
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:41pm glenn:

gastonia gallop rocks.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:44pm Holly in NC:

@Glenn - some unions are dysfunctional. For example, in a very large medical center which shall remain nameless, some low-level employees are unionized, others are not. Non-unionized employees can be fired for theft, having sex on the job, not doing their job - y'know, fireable offenses. Unionized employees not so much. In my experience this particular union in this particular environment does not lobby for better wages, working conditions, or anything remotely useful to employees or management & only breeds resentment. It's sad.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:50pm Doug Schulkind:

Extra points for the "habbit" / "wild rabbit" rhyme.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:53pm Holly in NC:

Oooh! Is too late to request "I'm an unskilled worker?"
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:53pm Doug Schulkind:

I love you dear Holly.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:55pm Holly in NC:

No - I love YOU! :-)
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:56pm Doug Schulkind:

GIVE THE DRUMMER RADIO PROGRAMMING ALERT...
Jesse Kaminsky's playlist page for Kaminsky Kamoutsky will be right over here... wfmu.org...
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@Holly: Unions were once a great avenue for radical democracy, but we need something that would give employees a similar voice for this day and age. If only we'd think of it...

My late grandfather and another co-worker died of a powerful cancer from handling asbestos at their steel mill; before he died they managed to win a settlement against Bethlehem Steel for that through their own valiant efforts. The union wouldn't do shit for them--didn't want to ruffle feathers in defense of their workers or what?? So yeah, solutions ain't easy...
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:57pm Matt from Springfield:

On a happier note, great choice in song Holly! I dig that one.
And great early Nilsson! Early *pseudonymous* Nilsson! I bet Irwin's wicked jealous of your find... ;)
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 6:57pm hyde:

thanks for all the laborious tunes from this member of the ranks of the unemployed!
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:58pm northguineahills:

Thanks Doug. Superb tunes!
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 6:59pm listener james from westwood:

thanks most kindly, doug!
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 6:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Bless you, hyde!
So many un/under employed listeners at WFMU, but best of luck to everyone--here's to that dream job!
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 7:00pm davex:

A job well done, Doug.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 7:00pm Matt from Springfield:
