Listener comments!

  12:03pm Sean Daily:

First comment! Woo hoo!
  12:04pm JJZ:

I'm told there will be rocking.
  12:06pm monica:

good things come to those who wait, jjz!
  12:08pm north guinea hills:

i'm rocking the smith out of this set so far!
  12:09pm Sean Daily:

  12:09pm Rick Potts:

Hurray! Thanks for playing the saw music that convinced me to play the saw. That's Robert Armstrong, of Mickey Rat & Coach Potato comix fame, who was in R.Crumb's Cheapsuit Serenaders. Did a buncha Yazoo record covers, too.
  12:12pm monica:

ok, i can see we got a rowdy bunch up in this piece today!
  12:16pm Sinner Nutt:

Happy New Year, Monica. I always seem to catch your show. Love 'em. (I'm already drankin' today, too. See if I can make it to tonight.....)
  12:16pm George in Germany:

Happy New Year from Germany, if only a bit ahead of schedule. The coming year is looking up already.

Though why the year is 384 when posting is beyond me.

Einen guten Rutsch ins Neue Jahr - just another way of saying 'good sliding into the new year.'
  12:19pm monica:

brother nutt and brother george - great to hear from you!! rick, got some saw waiting in the wings for ya! rawk, sean!
  12:31pm steveroo:

hey monica
a real treat to hear you again.
i wish you'd come back to the station and have a regular topslot again
  12:34pm Sean Daily:

I wonder if this song is about Big Bush Sound? It's a very subtle theme...
  12:37pm George in Germany:

Tempting fate with fireworks (in the name of parental guidance, of course) - a tradition which somehow feels wrong at this time of the year - fireworks in the summer make so much more sense.
  12:49pm bob in seattle:

actually this version of train kept a-rollin is rendered by johnny burnette and the rock and roll trio
  12:55pm Parq:

Digging the chantoosies, Monica - yourself included.
  1:01pm Ted:

I'll be at the 4th annual New Year's Eve Ukulele drop!

Sonic Uke hosts the 4th Annual New Year's Eve Ukulele Drop
Countdown and drop at midnight
Pre-countdown show at 10 PM
130 West 10th Street at Greenwich Avenue
West Village, NY

  1:06pm Parq:

Ted, that looks fantastic! Thanks for the tip.
  1:32pm Dean:

Please wish Buttah a happy new year. She was a big hit on Pseu Braun's show!
  1:35pm on behalf of Courtney T. Edison:

Has Buttah met Blossom's pup Fudgie?
  1:39pm monica:

Fudgie's a little bitch...Buttah won't have anything to do with her!
  2:00pm John:

Hi from Sacramento, Monica. Just happened to drop in & find you. What timing! Anyone who plays Tomita and Dennis Yost in the same show has some definite rockness.

Now, if Nino Tempo would drop in, I would be in total bliss mode.
  2:06pm herm:

howdy monica, one question: right before the jennifer warnes song there was a snippet of something else. what was it? was it jennifer warnes too? if yes what song? etc.
  2:07pm efd:

thanks for the plug, Monica! I need that Frankie Crocker album!!
  2:15pm monica:

john, let's see whjat we can do about nino tempo & april stevens.
herm, yes, that WAS another jw track - "close another door."
yo, evan, i BETTER hear "native new yorker!!"
  2:18pm pseu:

Bump dat Oh-Seven Noise~ Bring on "The 8"!
The only Perez I wanna hear from is Perez Prado!

  2:21pm Tom (The Bactrian Support Network):

GREAT show Monica--it's going down in history and on a CD along with your show back on the 7th, "Ladies Choice" awesome ,, Happy New Year ,,cheers!!!!!!!!!!! (oh is that the Pseu cheers too!!)
  2:27pm monica:

YO, Pseu Casa!! Hey Lady - Just remember - Mo casa y Pseu Casa!!
Hey Tom - Thanks for checking in - WE'RE ALL GOING DOWN TONIGHT!!
  2:30pm Jeff M:

Yaay! One of my two favorite FMU deejays stops back for a fill-in. I'll have to catch the top of the show from the archive.
  2:33pm Jeff M:

Echoing herm's question... there was that presumably-accidental snippet of something etherially dreary right before Weather's Better; what was it?
  2:39pm monica:

Hi Jeff and Herm,
That snippet was "Close Another Door" by Jennifer Warnes from the Just Jennifer CD recently released on Rev-Ola.
  2:47pm C:

Great set, Monica. Thanks! Got me all set for the Chuck Brown show tonight.
  2:56pm paj - uk:

new year wishes monica - nice to hear you again.
  2:57pm Jeff M:

Thanks! And now of course I see that you'd already answered the question, halfway down a previous post. Sorry.

Compelling set, as I've come to expect from ML. Hope to see you in the schedule in a future season (as long as that doesn't risk burning you out).
  2:58pm Listener James from Westwood:

Love this version of "Don't Leave Me This Way." The opening gives me chills. Ever so awesome to have had you back on today, Monica. You have a safe and wonderful New Year's and a great '08!
  2:59pm monica:
