Listener comments!

  9:02am annie:

morning doug!!
  9:03am texas scott:

mo nin doug...what's shakin' catdaddy?
  9:03am ratel:

yihaaa, morning all
  9:04am Parq:

Yoiks! I arrived in the room too late for the Hatkiva-Juju segue. Fridays never really start without that.
  9:24am Paul Sherratt:

Gosh,at this end ( UK ) I thought I heard the ghost of poet, Sir John Betjeman, trying to muscle in, during ' A Shropshire Lad ' !
  9:25am Hugo:

A Topic set! Loved the Cameron version. There must be countless versions of that tune, but my mind's gone blank at the moment.

Also on Topic: The Oldham Tinkers!
  9:28am paulthepostman:

Ah, ye olde englishe folksy what I have more time for now than what I did then...
  9:29am rob:

Morning from durham. Somehow I found myself in a group singing traditional folk songs, shape notes and all, last monday, and now I'm listening to some lovely traditional music. Must be the theme for this week.
  9:47am ratel:

paralleling british folk & rythm n' blues / r n' r... yummy
I wanna podcast !!!!
  9:47am chris:

"thats no Gila thats your momma son" genius
  9:56am Carmichael:

Good morning, Doug and all. I'm in Florida today, actually listening in the same time zone. It somehow sounds fresher!

Brazilian Merseybeat? Sounds great.
  10:02am chris:

I second the podcast notion!
  10:03am Drummer Some:

Top o' the morning (or afternoon or evening or whenever it is over "there") to everyone. Lotta 2-minutes songs keeping me busy. Not to mention the gila monster terrorizing the studio. (The gila monsters have already won.)
  10:11am ~L:

Happy New Presidency!
  10:11am zedprophfer:

organic grooves!!! yay!
  10:11am Cecile:

I thought I had tuned into the wrong show for a minute!
  10:17am Cecile:

This Diamond Joe works for the blues one feels when an acquaintance makes it incredibly, almost inexplicably, big doing the same thing as you do.
  10:23am paulthepostman:

Doug, while perusing the internoodle for some Egyptian >saiyidi< folk I stumbled upon something very unrelated yet no less interesting and topical...
  10:26am Carmichael:

Northern Soul rules!
  10:27am Carmichael:

And the wind cries Monday .... duh duh duh.
  10:28am Drummer Some:

Thanks Cecile, you given me the name to my new program: "The Wrong Show"
  10:29am Cecile:

LOL! I just thought that I was in a time bubble and Bryce's show was coming on when I heard the Fellini!
  10:34am Parq:

'Cile, I was thinking along similar lines. I had come back in from outside, and thought maybe Doug had been kidnapped and hurriedly replaced by Evan Davies.

I actually bought that "Sexual Life" CD in anticipation of a trip to Sao Paolo. The trip fell through, but the CD sounds great.
  10:35am Cecile:

as a fatty cake, I can get down with a good, fun chubby chaser song.
  10:36am Cecile:

as long as it's good-natured
  10:36am annie:

and bob wills!! roly poly
  10:38am Cecile:

that was such a celebration of actually being able to EAT after the Depression! I find that song really touching!
  10:45am Parq:

"Female Hercules" reminded me of a dancer I saw the other night - incredibly beautiful and incredibly muscular.
  10:46am annie:

"you know the same rowdy crowd that was here last night is back again!"
  10:47am GP:

I'll take one of each please or a combo; a bald, one-eyed, herculean toe-steppin baby!
  10:48am Carmichael:

Ricahrd Thompson's "Two Left Feet" is another fine my-baby-can't-dance song.
  10:49am Cecile:

you should play Tonio K's "howcome can't I see you in my mirror?"
  10:51am Carmichael:

Dan Hicks' "How Can I Miss you If You Won't Go Away".
  10:51am chris:

what a great show. first time listener really enjoying the tunes
  10:53am GP:

Hank...woo hoo! and yee haw!
Thanks Doug
  10:54am Drummer Some:

Thanky, Chris. Welcome aboard!
  10:57am Hugo:

Dan Hicks, yep! Played the "Last Train to Hicksville" the other day and downloaded a 1997 Charlatans reunion concert from Dime. Seconded!
  11:01am GP:

Welcome Chris..enjoy the careful though..FMU is addictive!
  11:05am Hugo:

The MacColl - Cameron can be found here:

(possibly preempting the Doug newsletter)
  11:07am Chris:

Man, I think you are right about FMU being addicrtive.... this is so great!
  11:08am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  11:08am jk:

love los teen agers.
thank you Doug
  11:08am Paul Sherratt:

Yes, Chris ,welcome to a rather fine place. For years I've been asking if there's anything else quite like like on this planet. No suggestions so far ..
As addictions go, this Friday fix is one to just give in to.
  11:11am annie:

chris, when you have a few hours to kill, check out the archives. extremely diverse. there is a search box at the top left of the homepage.... bon appetit!
  11:13am Carmichael:

Chris, tune in every day at this time and you will find something wonderful.

I am near the beach in Florida, and this stuff is PERFECT!
  11:14am GP:

THis Pio Levia is you not be smiling all the time while listening to this?
  11:14am Chris:

Where has this site been all my life...
  11:17am Parq:

Chris, welcome, and say goodbye to your other interests for a while. Paul, I've been around long enough to say with some authority that only FMU is FMU. Last year's April-Fool switcheroo with a Bay Area freeform station proved that nothing else comes close.

And gang, let's not forget that marathon time is nigh.
  11:18am Emily:

Torcuata just improved the quality of my life tenfold! Thanks, Doug!
  11:19am annie:

parq , that had to be the best time.... i only iwsh the dj on the other end had a playlist....there was a performer i tried to name from ages past, she sounded just like her.. no clue..
  11:20am GP:

Doug, to sound like a true Latin American DJ, you need to add some reverb everytime you announce the songs.
  11:22am Hugo:

Yes, the marathon is something else. I caught a whiff of that mayhem back in 06 - during the Doug and Monica shows ...
  11:23am kent:

what are the dates of this year's marathon? i look forward to it every year.
  11:26am Drummer Some:

Don't quote me but I believe it starts March 5. Whatever that Monday is. See you then!
  11:27am still b/p:

This show is the Sham Wow that sucks up and eliminates life's blahs, burdens and any brightness/boogie inhibitors.
  11:27am fishmonkeystew:

Sharon Jones! yeeeeeeeeaaaahh!!
  11:27am Parq:

Shar and the Daps!
  11:28am Cecile:

I think I am going to have a contest for WFMU DJs - why should I contribute to your particular show?
Best answer gets a mouse pledge! LOLOLOLOL!
  11:29am Drummer Some:

My answer is the next 31 minutes!

  11:29am Paul Sherratt:

Thanks Brian for the DC and thanks Doug for this Sharon Jones song which has been the soundtrack of my life these past couple of months ..


I knew there's be no answer to that question.
But I just LOVE asking it.
  11:30am Cecile:

b/p does that make Doug Vince, the guy with the headset? "You know the Germans, they make good stuff!"
  11:30am Parq:

'Cile, spread out your mouse - $25 on this show, $25 on that. Share the love, and get more door-prize chances to boot.
  11:30am Carmichael:

OK, here we go! Johhnie Taylor!
  11:32am Carmichael:

"Are you followin' me, camera guy?"
  11:33am Cecile:

Yeah, Parq you make lots of sense.
  11:33am annie:

i have to figure out which show i should click. i can only donate a small amount this time..
  11:33am GP:

He our assistants just walked by, did a double-take, came in and was listening.."Ohhhhh thats good." was her reaction...Another convert!
  11:34am Cecile:

I love Vince.
And Billy "out of the matting, into the padding!" May
I grew up going to county fairs and seeing the pitchmen there.
  11:34am rob:

b/p, I agree. I've been using this sham wow show to buff out the blues from my paperwork all morning. Typing up casenotes has never boogied this bright before.
  11:34am Carmichael:

Jimmy Carter says yes ....

Jimmy Carter says YES!
  11:36am Parq:

Annie, as an occasional 'thon volunteer, I feel safe in speaking for everyone when I say that anything you're willing to give will be embraced gratefully.

I've loved this 5D track for decades. This passage from the Declaration is my Facebook quote.
  11:36am annie:

my best memory is having the station on in my cafe and a customer walking in and recognizing the format without batting an eye... and i wwas in upstate!
  11:37am annie:

parq, FB- friend me?
  11:38am Parq:

Annie, I'd be proud to. Give me a search term I can use to find you.
  11:39am annie:

hhmm. ok....oh!! i am an admin in the monsanto and its ilk must be stopped group!
  11:41am annie:

i loved this speech...
  11:41am Parq:

Done. It's gonna have to wait until tonight. My strangely Orwellian work puter will not let me access FB.

Drummer Some, thanks for playing the Peebles. I haven't hear the full track, just the excerpt that plays under the closing credits of "Watermelon Man".
  11:43am Cecile:

brown can stick around....
  11:43am Carmichael:

... as long as he gives the drummer some.
  11:44am annie:

you'll see parq that i am quite vocal in my posts.. i have fun..
  11:44am Parq:

Has there been any right-wing blowback about the Rev's praying for increased privilege for nonwhites and increased acceptance of responsibity by whites? Seems just the sort of thing the wingnuts would jump on.
  11:44am ratel:

yeah ! the link's picture is mandatory with this track !!
  11:45am Paul Sherratt:

Now whatever happened to dear Stanley Winston, I wonder ..

This is my first week listening to wfmu with a Democratic President in place. Thought I'd just mention that !

(And the Lowery speech killed us too, perfection )
  11:46am annie:

extremely interesting that obama is an ox and so is this the year of the ox.. it stands for hard work and tanacity
  11:48am annie:
  11:48am rob:

Amen Rev. Lowrey
  11:49am Drummer Some:

You know who else is an ox? You're looking at him! 1961 en la casa!
  11:50am annie:

it will be a good year for you doug..
  11:52am GP:

Off to lunch..have to catch the archives
  11:53am still b/p:

Stepped away a minute...
Bit of a Jekyll & Hyde thing for some of us, no?... Sham Wowery exposure/familiarity, AND deep appreciation of this show/station. Not that there's know...
  11:53am Cecile:

I'm an ox, too. Me an' Doug are fellow Geminoids.
  11:54am Carmichael:

The Happy Organ!
  11:55am annie:

i always forget what i am but i am triple cancer. born in 53
  11:55am Shamwow:

the Shamwow cares not about the aesthetics.
the Shamwow is only interested in the obliteration of the stains...
must complete mission...
  11:56am Carmichael:

You'd have to be crazy not to own one.
  11:56am Parq:

What a great party this has been this AM! Have a good weekend everybody. I gotta take the kid back to college. Good excuse for digging some Dutchess County winter vibes.
  11:59am Paul Sherratt:

That was never three hours ..
  2:58pm El Thatchmo:

Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction. GObama!
  2:59pm El Thatchmo:

... more amazing than fiction.
