Was that Charlie Callas opening the show?

Morning everyone! Joe is absent today. I can't tell you where he is, but he very cleverly pre-recorded this exclusive show as an alibi, let's wish him luck!

verrry interesting

Haydee-hoe DJ Scott Williams, your're prettier than DJ Joe anyway.

@Cheri Pi: Did you have to send him to rehab after finding more Kansas records in his room?
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 9:22am DCE:

haha Fred, I bet she's sent him away for a bit!
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 9:25am PKNY:

This is making me so very happy!
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 9:26am DCE:

so very happy...I usually substitute the f word instead of "very" when I hum it in my head

Hello Joe! Hi everybody! This is all so smooth.

Hi Joe from the past and friends of Joe in the present.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 9:34am Scott Williams:

Joe did leave me a crystal ball, the future holds no Kansas. That's as much as I'll say.

I was *just* about to ask if you had some Dr. Lonnie Smith on deck to continue the jazz organ theme. You're reading my mind, man!

Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 9:42am tim from champaign:

I wonder if Joe is lying low because he's going to drop a doozy of an A-Bomb during Single file. Some REO perhaps?
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 9:42am Sem Chumbo:

No, I want to thank YOU, Joe! This is very fine.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 9:46am Andrew Waterloo:

The rhythm section killed it on that one.

let's leave our organs out of this

Joe's grounded, he'll be back next week.

repeat: It's Not Cold Out
  Thu. 3/27/14 9:50am 12539:

I always knew the swag embezzlement scandal would catch up with Joe sooner or later. Let's hope he's got a good lawyer.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 9:50am Whooda:

Vague enough time frame to be an alibi for Joe to rob a bank or other nefarious activity conducted outside of the studio. Must keep an eye on the headlines this week.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 9:50am DCE:

well at least he seems like he was well-prepared
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 9:50am Sem Chumbo:

Say it ain't so, Joe!

The Landlord and Joe's Old Lady better look over their shoulder for the next couple hours

hee hee! kiss me, i'm gonna give you pneumonia!
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 9:58am PKNY:

Joe's rap is somewhere between the rambling of James Brown, and the knowledge drops of Eddie Harris from his 'comedy' LP.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 9:58am tim from champaign:

I'm learning a lot from this song.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:03am Sem Chumbo:

And now the Master.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:06am Guido from Cologne:

That was irritating for me decades ago, when i knew nothing really about IH, borrowing this "black Moses" with this incredible cross-fold-out-cover and then finding this bacharach song on it.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:10am tim from champaign:

@PKNY - What's Eddie Harris' comedy album called? I've heard about it but I don't think I've run across it before.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:15am PKNY:

@Tim - www.discogs.com...
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:17am northguineahills:

Hmmm...., no regular live djs the last two mornings.... I'm still going w/ my theory that most of WFMU djs got sequestered somewhere... *adjusts tin foil hat*

@ngh: something is happening...
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:19am Stevel:

Thought she said Party Pants. Now its just a let down.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:20am joe:

'ello folks
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:21am Whooda:

@NGH A coalition has deployed a flotilla of ships and squadron of aircraft in search of the missing DJ's. Satellite data confirms random vinyl discs and magnetic tape but no positive identification has been made at this time. The weather has posed a problem as it is just too nice to waste on looking for a couple of missing DJs.
  Thu. 3/27/14 10:23am Ralphine:

Maybe it's construction noise from the new performance space?
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:23am tim from champaign:

Thanks PKNY. Yep, I have not run across that one before.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:24am Davee:

Perhaps they are not missing but merely hiding in someones closet?
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:25am Davee:

Waiting to jump out and scare someone by yelling "Smarty Pants"?
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:25am tim from champaign:

Oh I got it figured out! Joe is really DJ Keili and Bryce is really Joe Belock.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:26am Davee:

Right Building but wrong Belock!
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:27am Davee:

It's too early in the season for Keilidids
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:28am PKNY:

"It pays, it pays to go to meetings!"
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:29am PKNY:

@Tim - I've run across that Eddie Harris a few times when I'm out record shopping, you should be able to find it fairly cheap. And I *think* the record is on Spotify, if you want to check it out beforehand.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:30am Ken From Hyde Park:

I'm anticipating the Single File segment this morning.

this song is very sweet.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:50am Davee:

I love these 45 sets
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:54am tim from champaign:

A ha! A counterpart to Spizz Energi's "Where's Captain Kirk?". I was not aware of "Spock's Missing" until now. Thanks, Joe!
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:55am Greg from Bloomfield:

Gah! I nabbed this 45 out of a cardboard box in Chapel Hill.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 10:57am ChrisB.:

Wow, this show seems so real!

We could really pull on a funny on Joe and actually have the musicians he mentioned show up the the shows that he said they'll be on.
Avatar Thu. 3/27/14 11:13am bobdoesthings:

I wonder if there is anyone out there that tuned in and got excited over the fake upcoming news..

Scott, thanks so much for coming in to the station, which is apparently too much to ask of certain other DJs, and doing such a fine job of playing this prerecording.
