@Joe, you could back announce by 1)saying you hadn’t prepared a speech, followed by 2) thanking all the artists in the set , then extemporaneously thanking random objects in the studio then cause a stir by getting naked and go off on a cause célèbre diatribe ,on say like, Don Felder.

@futurescamp -- I can see that! And of course "mony" pronounced that way doesn't have a real English equivalent. I love how those songs and lyrics we misunderstood as kids stick with us and bring us back to a good place.

@NGH we'd have to look into the numbers, but as commenters to listeners per capita, perhaps. There's as far as I know 4 active listeners including myself, and two of us consistently comment. There's roughly 3 million of us. So, there's one and a third people per million that listen here. BUT - we have a 50% participation on the comments rate. I'm wonder how we stack up against Other developing nations with regards to FMU))

@steveo Eventually the cleaned-up version, with "funky kicks," replaced it, but for awhile, yeah. If you listen to the end of "Hot Stuff" by the Stones, Mick sorta says, "All those people down in Jamaica/they all fuckin' in the sun" ... I think that still passes.
