Listener comments!

  3:12pm dei xhrist:

Ike H - I wish.
  3:15pm Ike H:

This Erdem Helvaciouglu piece is awesome.

Meanwhile, to continue a discussion from Woody's playlist:
Dei X - then what is Vermin Supreme?
  3:23pm dei:

So happy you fell for it. He's one of the bazillion people on the presidential ballot, but the US equivalent of the Raving Looney Party. mobilebroadcastnews.com and verminsupreme.com will give you examples (like don't invite him over to make pancakes).
This Songs is putting me in relax land.
  3:25pm JFred:

Hello from Paris, France and Happy New Year to everyone !

Your playlists are always delightful, yours is today particularly great Iren, I'm listening to it while cooking, just like the french hobbit that I am ^^
  3:26pm JFred:

9.30 PM here btw, that's why...
  3:29pm Irene:

Glad to put you all in relaxation-land!

Happy New Year!


BTW, JFred, I hope you're cooking something delicious for a winter's eve.
  3:29pm dei x:

Hope you're making pancakes... delightful for every meal
  3:31pm Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  3:35pm JFred:

Pancakes for dinner ?!? Omg.
Actually I'm cooking a Youvetsi, a greek recipe, small noodles with lamb meat in a tomato sauce, oven cooked.
Awesome I hope, doh!
  3:44pm Wes:

JFred, your meal sounds delicious, I was just thinking how lunch today did NOT hit the spot. If you throw in some toasted pita and greek feta I'll be over in a jiffy.
  3:46pm Wes:

And yes, this music is certainly putting me in sleepy...i mean....relaxation land. The thoughts of hot pancakes and sausage for dinner should pull me through.
  3:46pm Bad Ronald:

I had lamb for lunch!
  3:49pm JFred:

"Food - Music - Relaxation..."
That makes me think of a surrealistic Kraftwerk-esque Jingle ^^
  3:51pm Wes:

QUESTION: What's the best place to get a Gyro in NYC? (only reply if you are a Gryo aficionado like I am and know what yer talkin about)
  3:55pm north guinea hills:

depends on what type of gyro you're looking for... turkish, greek, lebanese, palestian?
  4:00pm Parq:

Hmm. Bad Ron's announcement seems to invite an old tale; "Ronny had a little lamb ... "
  4:00pm Ron White:

  4:02pm Ron White:


dont be played by fox and cnn.
dont elect another cfr member.
  4:10pm Sean Daily:

Go Greek gyro. Tzatziki sauce... mmmmm....
  4:13pm Ike H:

Wes: Haven't had a gyro lately, but check out this discussion:

Whatever you do, don't go to Mamoun's. So many people recommend it, yet it's terrible, at least whenever I've gone.
  4:18pm g:

I used to get a gyro from the guy on the corner of 53rd and Park, in front of the Seagram building. I think they're Lebanese. If it's not to your taste, well, it will have only cost you about 4 bucks to try. . .
  4:19pm Motorhead:

RON PAUL 2008.
  4:20pm Wes:

Sorry, should have been clear about that. I'm looking for a GREEK gyro...tzatziki sauce quality is as important as the savory flavor of the lamb, presentation, etc
  4:21pm Wes:

  4:37pm Wes:

Thanks for the link, Ike, sounds like Karavas is the place to go!!!!
  4:39pm peter:

any good music in nyc tonite? where?
  4:40pm karate papi chulo:

ron paul is the man
  4:41pm north guinea hills:

ah, i'm more into turkish/lebanese gyros....

there's a nice minimal pulsey electronic show by antiguos automatico mexicano tonight a supreme trading, if that's your thing. the lad is scoring me a gig in monterrey, mexico, so i'll swing by there.
  4:43pm Irene:

The system seems to keep burping Ron Paul up like bad indigestion. Anyone able to explain why?
  4:45pm karate papi chulo:

cuz he's the man.
  5:06pm Thom:

Here's to a happy new year, Irene and fellow listeners... from me in Copenhagen... oh, by the way, my block has at least 10 different shawarma/falafel/gyro joints.
  5:11pm dei xhrist:

re Ron Paul - because he's the political equivalent of tofu - any group can see their own agenda in his campaign. Vis, the white supremists... someone else on the FMU comments advised googling Paul and white power. Here in NH the latest humor (and potential reality) is a Kucinich/Paul ticket for November.
  5:12pm Bad Ronald:

Instant Shawarma's gonna get you!
  5:30pm karate papi chulo:

i love paying for wars that create more terrorism.
i love paying for welfare.
i love paying for wars that only benefit world bankers' agendas.
i love the patriot act.
i love giving up freedoms.
  5:37pm Prince:

yeah...i like putting more money in the pockets of big bankers and corporate giants through war expenditures.

  5:51pm north guinea hills:

i may be a softy, and yes she's melodramatic as the theater, but i really do like lavender diamond for some reason against all of my sensibilities, one of my fave recs of the year.

happy new year everyone!
