Listener comments!

Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 10:55am Michael Shelley:

WFMU has recently started broadcasting on a new transmitter, covering NYC, so all the great top of the hour station IDs I produced over the years are suddenly obsolete!

I'll start rebuilding, but I thought this might be a great way to involve the show's listeners.

So if YOU are interested in helping me make some new WFMU IDs here is what you need to do:

Send me an mp3 or wav file of you reading these words

WFMU, East Orange
WMFU, Mount Hope
In New York City and Rockland County at 91.9 FM
And online at WFMU.org

Some things to know:

-I'm looking for fairly straight forward readings.
-To make this FCC compliant: make sure you read those words in that order, exactly as written.
-Feel free to throw anything in BEFORE and/or AFTER.
A great example of something to add before would be: Hi this is listener Oscar from Manhattan and you're listening to... then read the ID as written (inserting your name in place of Oscar's)
Or after: stay tuned for more #1 hits!, or mention the show, or that it's Saturday, or that we're the world's greatest radio station...
-Do not use a fake announcery voice.
-Do not use any compression or special effects.
-The sound quality doesn't have to be great, but at least pretty good.
-Feel free to send several versions for me to choose from.
-If you want to make it into a song or a huge production - go ahead.
-Please understand that it might take a while till I use them all.

I say it too!

I am such a fan of this song.

gonna be a short party, babe :-)

Drums n this are so perfect. Not leaning on anything. Sometimes it pays not to be a great player
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:27pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Michael, I use whoa...totally...I also use the word, gauche...does any one use that?
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:27pm Frank In Queens:

I have early childhood memories of this Split Enz song on the radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:27pm Hughie Considine:

@Frank, I blame @Buddha for bringing me out of my shell.
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:28pm Frank In Queens:

It wasn't a complaint Hughie!
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:28pm Rocky Horror:

@Michael Shelley: "Whoa" is mostly used with horses these days. Those of a certain age will use "Whoa nellie" like a 70s sports announcer
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:28pm Linda Lee:

this song was *everywhere* on air new. not surprised, Frank!
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:28pm Buddha of Suburbia:

In that case I'm going to turn around and collect the party hats. They have sparkles.
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:28pm Roberto:

What Therese said!
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:30pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Ah yes, where have you heard the expression, "That Buddha...what an instigator"? Never! I rest my case Soda Papi
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:30pm Linda Lee:

woh what a voice!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:30pm Hughie Considine:

It really isn't a Michael Shelley show without some studio talk.
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:31pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Is this LIVE???
  Sat. 9/1/18 12:31pm tadpoles:

Just let the Hollies do it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:31pm Hughie Considine:

@Buddha, I wrote "blame" but "credit" would have been the better word.
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:31pm Buddha of Suburbia:

I AM A TURNIP. A dumb one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:32pm Linda Lee:

i can confrim & others here can do: recording sessions can be incredibly dull & laborious
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:33pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Hughie, I'm cool with being the one to blame or the one to credit. I have missed you. Don't you miss Wake n Bake?
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:34pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Michael Shelley Neil Finn is his name and tonally I think he sounds a lot like Lindsey Buckingham. I'm okay with the change. Lindsey sounds like a real prima donna.
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:36pm Michael Shelley:

Me too. Cant wait to hear what they come up with.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:36pm Linda Lee:

is there ever room for more than one prima donna?
no, there is not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:36pm Hughie Considine:

@Buddha, I do miss Wake n Bake. My morning schedule was different this summer, so that got in the way, but I'll be back. PS: turnips rule.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:38pm Linda Lee:

love this version of 'i want you back'! very nice.
  Sat. 9/1/18 12:38pm BmoreTom:

Nice take on a classic. Graham Parker gave it a try too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:39pm Hughie Considine:

"spare me a discourse" -- never heard that!
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:39pm Buddha of Suburbia:

It's a good group. Do you remember that racist creep that came into the mix and went on his racist tirade? Yeh, that wasn't fun.
  Sat. 9/1/18 12:40pm Dennis Diken:

Buddha, I totally say totally too
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:41pm Buddha of Suburbia:

I totally say totally as well! (tipping cap).
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:41pm jake6573:

Great Show Michael !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:41pm Hughie Considine:

That was a weird one, thankfully a real rarity. Never saw anything like that in all my FMU years.
  Sat. 9/1/18 12:41pm SeanG:

great tunes dude! :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:42pm patrick321:

Hey Mike, I'm listening from a hotel room in Italy it's strange to hear your show at 6:40 pm. Rome is pretty great but you can't get Waylon Jennings to David Ruffin segues here.
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:42pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Does anyone use the word, 'gauche"? I use it every now and then. Do I sound like an arrogant guy in a Butterscotch checkered Burberry ascot?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:43pm Linda Lee:

lately i've seen someone else on the boards by that name, acting normal. it's a common name, though, true.
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:43pm Buddha of Suburbia:

So weird! I got the brunt of it because I kept attacking him right back! Buddha went rogue that day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:43pm Linda Lee:

@Buddha, no, but you do sound a bit French. :-D
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:43pm Frank In Queens:

My wife says "gauche".
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:44pm Buddha of Suburbia:

LL, you mean "?" I think there's several "?"s on FMU ACCU it's easy for those people who are too lazy to make up a handle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:45pm Linda Lee:

yes, right.
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:45pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Frank, your wife is aces with me.
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:46pm Buddha of Suburbia:

linda lee, :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:47pm Linda Lee:

alors, gotta buzz off again. Happy Saturday all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:47pm Hughie Considine:

Oh, man, "Comin' Home Baby" is one of the best songs in the universe -- never heard a bad version.
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:48pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Hughie! Thanks for the email. Can't wait to read it! I am going to get going everyone. Lots of love! Buona giornata! Fai qualcosa di eccitante come dire la parola "gauche".
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:49pm Buddha of Suburbia:

LL, you owe me a Coke. We're leaving at the same exact time. Jinx!
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:50pm Buddha of Suburbia:

Bye Huuuugghie! *Batting virtual eyelashes.*

This is definitely one of the darkest Buzzcocks songs.
  Sat. 9/1/18 12:53pm andrewb:

I've always suspected that the brothers Gibb called themselves Bee Gees so they would be found next to the Beatles in the record racks
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/1/18 12:54pm Hughie Considine:

Could be, but the Beau Brummels definitely did.
Avatar Sat. 9/1/18 12:57pm Buddha of Suburbia:

I have to circle back and voice my opinion Andrewb, Or it could be B-arry G-ibb patting himself on the back for being the founder of the fraternal band. Bee Gees...

Here is a song that changed my life when I was all of 10 years old.

Thanks Michael for a great show. Have a good one!

Great show Michael! Everyone enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.

Bee Gees came from Brothers Gibb!

Tadpoles thanks
