Listener comments!

  9:15am oh no!:

morning doug. think there's a slight glitch with the wfmu homepage- it still says the last song from hot rod's set on the "still playing" bit. unless it's just my browser that's not updating or something.
  9:20am Drummer Some:

Yes, Oh No!
There sure does seem to be a problem. I think we need to get the gerbils spinning the wheel faster. RUN, gerbils, RUN.
  9:23am Vivian:


I can hear your show however, Itunes lists Hot Rod's last song for what it is currently playing.
  9:24am Drumme Some:

Gerbils are just getting warmed up. Soon come!
  9:26am Vivian:

As long as I hear your show, no complaints on my end.
  9:26am Ken:

Playlist problem fixed! Thanks Vivian!
  9:27am annie:

must be my net-connection, hotrod' s page froze and i been stuck.. hehe, now i'm not! good morning all.. happy spring!! equinox rules..
  9:28am oh no!:

oh no! that's terrible doug. sympathies from on of the 2-million unemployed british
  9:29am Bäd R☺nald:

Wow that was weird. I was stuck in the future on Billy Jam's playlist all alone. Glad to be back.

Good Morning Everyone!
  9:30am annie:

doo dee do do, doo dee do do.. eerie
  9:34am still b/p:

BR, please, I have to know: am I less scatterbrained in the few-hour future?
  9:36am texas scott:

bummer about the layoff,Doug.90% of worry never comes to fruition your mind and your ass will other words,door closed,window opens..
Love the show.
  9:37am Bäd R☺nald:

Yes still b/p you will become quite focused. Also, Billy and Bryce will do a killer segue...
  9:37am annie:

scott, right on.. doug, i been without a job for almost a year and i am surviving. you will as well..
  9:38am annie:

this is the time we all start pulling to gether. i sa a great poster this am: get excited and make something!!
  9:38am Drummer Some:

Of course, you dear listeners shouldn't hesitate to make me a job offer. I can wait. Any time now. Don't be bashful.
  9:47am texas scott:

i'm with annie ,Doug....get excited and make something!
hahahahaha,how funny is that? no serious, make something!
maybe you can get a temporary paying gig,spinning rekkids!
we know your good at that!
  9:50am annie:

at this point, i feel that we should redefine what the word initiative means. it is within our own strength and deeper knowledge to create the future we would love to see. ok, ok i'm an idealist!!
  9:50am dc pät:

you should get a job as an ethnomusicologist.
  9:51am annie:

yeah, is the smithsonian hiring?
  9:55am dc pät:

äññié, your name is ripe for gratuitous special characters
  9:55am texas scott:

how bout the library of congress?
  9:56am still b/p:

Thanks, BR, for the word from the bright new early afternoon ahead -- that's great! 'Cuz right now, on a chronic-fuzzed-focus scale of 1 to 10, I'm a D-minus.
And the segue's gonna be equinoxed outa the park! Yay..if I can remember to pay attention at magic hour!
  9:57am Drummer Some:

Texas Scott,
My maternal grandfather worked at the Library of Congress over 50 years ago.
  9:58am annie:

woohoo pat, if i can't, then i pass the honour on to you. thanks ever so much for the embellishment!
  9:59am annie:

we must be sure to locate a position for doug that keeps him in the region, though! no re-location for this dude..
  9:59am texas scott:

well there you are, come from a long line of musicologists,and it shows!
  10:01am jk:

rambling indonesian surf guitars on friday morning. yes! thanks Doug
  10:02am Ken From Hyde Park:

This show is why I look forward to Friday. Then again, WFMU's Saturday shows are why I look forward to Saturday, etc., etc.
  10:03am ǾЙ №!™:

fridays shows are so good, i never get enough job applications done on a friday...
  10:04am Doctor B.:

Love this show!
  10:04am annie:

i really really dig that new monday night show
  10:08am cr:

damn I missed the beginning of the show with the "rambling indonesian surf guitars".... will have to visit archives later...
  10:11am Drummer Some:

Actually, my grandfather was a linguist whose specialty was archaic languages. (And he was a bloody bastard.) Once, his parents went to high school graduation ceremony, only to discover that he had never even enrolled. He spent the three years riding the subways and hanging out with nefarious types. Joined the merchant marines, traveled the world, then came home to become a world-reknowned linguist. (Still was a bastard though.)
  10:11am Cecile:

Dudu in the house!
Mornin' all!
  10:13am Parq:

Doug, I'm appalled. I'm just now going on line, but I caught the tail end of your first mike break. I can't do much more than offer my warmest thoughts, but I hope that counts for something.
  10:13am Cecile:

wow, Doug. So he was a crappy grandpa, too? Sometimes a bad dad can be a good grandpa.

I adored mine: he collected old magazines, got shot at on the Ford strike line in his youth, and hustled pool to augment his Social Security check. I miss that SOB every day.
  10:16am Bäd R☺nald:

Is that true Doug or are you setting up the cunning linguist joke?
  10:19am Drummer Some:

Naw, my grandfather was also a lousy father. Pretty amazing life, though. He taught for years at Lincoln Univ. in Pennsylvania. One of his colleagues was a young Kwame Nkruma, who would go on to become the first president of Ghana.
  10:20am Cecile:

Yes! He helped develop that language they spoke in the South African diamond mines, right Doug?

that's how it goes unfortunatly, Doug. He gets the cool life, the rest of the family get the spoiled spoils.
  10:23am Bäd R☺nald:

Wow, that is amazing! You should write a book about it.
  10:23am Jess:

This song makes me happy.
  10:24am Drummer Some:

As understand it, he helped teach the common language to workers from all over the continent who came to work in the minds. At least, this is the legend. I saw his picture in a 7th Grade geography book, but my mother never 100% confirmed it was him. I could tell though by the way he was holding his cigarette in the photo...
  10:24am gumby:

This Wami track packs a WHAMMY!!
Funky - Funky!!
  10:24am BK in RI:

Really like this by the Urgencies. Good Choice.
  10:29am dc pät:

that's what you should do Doug, take this time to start/work on your book.
  10:31am stingy d:

it's friday, do you know what means? it's thursday.
  10:31am Cecile:

it's two days past business time.
  10:32am texas scott:

Really appreciate the newsletter,Doug!
  10:33am Cecile:

I missed the part about the job loss...
  10:34am texas scott:

has anyone dl'ed "Heartbreakers and Woodchips"?
it's a HOOT!!!
  10:43am Ike:

Ugh, some of my friends were just bemoaning the departure of a band member from that atrocious, pathetic, psuedo-alternative boy band Barenaked Ladies, and I'm thinking, I tell you about WFMU, and you get excellent reception where you live, and you're *still* listening to garbage like Barenaked Ladies? What's wrong with you? They think the band member left or was kicked out due to cocaine. Yeah, if I was in such a horrible band, I'd do mountains of cocaine too, due to guilt over putting such awful musical slime into the world!

I really loved that Urgencies track too.
  10:43am Peter:

Cecile with your inner female perception, could u tell me if i should quit my Job, whatever u fell in the moment say yes or no ok?
  10:45am Bäd R☺nald:

"Barenaked Ladies" is one of the lamest band names as well...
  10:45am Cecile:

don't quit unless you haz something in the wings.
  10:45am stingy d:

oh man blog poster 'stranger than fiction' made a very nice post on the wfmu blog. or if not very nice... very right on.
  10:46am Cecile:

I would do cocaine if I were in that band, I'd be bored. And secretly pretending I was in April Wine on Annihilator.
  10:46am stingy d:

yo parq fuck that job, you're resourceful.
  10:48am Peter:

i think i have something in the wings, will see
Thanks Cecile
  10:48am texas scott:

yes lame name'Barenaked Ladies'
why didn't they just call the band 'Titsandass Copulators'?
  10:49am Cecile:

go for it if it makes sense.
They were jerking around with my husband's hours of late, and I told him to go start looking. Then they stopped because his department was ready to mutiny. Whew.
  10:50am Cecile:

Or "Boobies, Boobies, I just saw Boobies!"
  10:50am Ike:

TX Scott, HA!

Peter, I wouldn't leave any job now unless I *definitely* had something else ready to go.
  10:51am gumby:

One way to lose your million dollars if you had a milion dollars is cocaine.
  10:51am stingy d:

i read that wron, i jjust woked up tho... yo pita!! fuck that job, you're resourceful.... sorry parq. keep your job.
  10:51am Cecile:

right on, Ike. We are opinion twinz on that.
  10:54am north guinea hills:

digging this old skool cumbia by guillermo buitrago..... cute lyrics....
  10:56am Cecile:

I like that one merengue about this guy who buys a dog to look after his cheating wife, but then finds out all the dog can do is bark, so he still doesn't know anything.

also any merengue lyrics involving goats are great ,too.
  10:57am jk:

hey...cumbia. great stuff this morning.
  10:58am Parq:

Thanks, D. The bursar at my kid's college thanks you too.
  10:58am gumby:

Peter, I hear the Barenaked Ladies are looking to hire someone.
  10:59am Cecile:

Oh, yes. But you might want to develop a secret drinking habit, and pretend you are secretly in Sloan.
  10:59am north guinea hills:

i've never been a merengue fan, but it's only a matter of time before i run out of music genres to explore, i'll have look into it.
  10:59am Peter:

Thanks scott and stingy d and cecile!!i will ponder about all the advices.
  11:02am stingy d:

time for that kid to get a job parq. a real one! in a coal mine! thats the only way to get through college. on your own! rrruh!
  11:03am pauladepipersdaughterinparis:

pauladepipersdaughterinparis once played pan pipes of the andes with aphex twin at a friends chicken pocks party. it was pure passion personified. Little lord ponzonby was particularly pleased with the performance. thanks doug - aka toug
  11:06am dentron in denton:

Fantastic set...

Reminds me of hot Texas summers.
  11:08am GP:

Morning all
  11:08am Parq:

D, she's an English major, she'll have plenty of opportunity to work in shit jobs after she graduates.
  11:09am pauldepiperssoninprenzlauerberg:

pure fiction. pauladepipersdaughter heard people like us play panpipes of the andes alongside pam ewing and the partial to a poof quintet in panama. still nice story and good from the heart show.
  11:14am Cecile:

As an English major, I think I was misled about the scarcity of jobs in my field - in that people kept telling me I could never get a job using my degree. If I had tried harder, I know i would have.
  11:16am stingy d:

college drop outs unite!
  11:16am Nipsey Russel:

Spring is sprung
The grass is riz
I wonder where the birdies iz
  11:17am north guinea hills:

happy anniversary!
  11:18am Cecile:

ZOMG, Doug. I've been married twice as long as you have.

Happy Anniversary!
  11:18am Peter:

Cecile i think u knew there was something more important in life , thats why u didnt want to get it!!
  11:19am Parq:

You and your beloved made the right choice, Doug. I'm Irish on my dad's side and I hate St. Patrick's Day in America, and have for decades. Happy Anniv to you.
  11:21am Cecile:

Yeah. A dude totally passed out next to me on the bus on St. Paddy's. That sucked.
  11:23am Peter:

yup those things can be revealing many times, if you are aware of course.
  11:23am stingy d:

some drunk shit heads passed out and knocked over chairs at eisenberg's sandwich shop helping to ruin the end of my thorough enjoyment of their establishment.

also some reddened douch bag tried to grab my bicycle while i was riding it.

also i got hit by my first car.
  11:25am Cecile:

that sounds awful, Stinge. Are you ok?
  11:27am stingy d:

yea i'm fine. believe it or not, i always can come up with the thing to say that makes people stop talking, and reflect on their poor decision making skills. it's easiest when you are outside, because you can punctuate anything by spitting next to their feet, or on their windshield.
  11:29am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  11:30am Peter:

Stingy d, are u really outside or u wish to?
  11:30am Parq:

It's not just the drunkenness I hate, although that's surely the worst of it. I hate everything about St. Patrick's Day in the US. I hate the dumb novelty headgear. I hate the green ties at work. I hate the Woolworth's Tinpan Alley songs accepted by most people as "real" Irish music. I even hate hearing it called "St. Paddy's Day". I'm a sorehead, I know, but two decades' efforts to lighten up have been fruitless.
  11:32am dale:

just tuned in.
a: I'm digging this set.
b. sorry to read about your employment situation
c.glad to know that Eisenbergs is still around.
  11:33am Holden Caulfield:

What do you think about phonies Parq?
  11:33am stingy d:

umm... i am really inside pita, but i ride my bike outside A LOT, and i curse heavily. and i have excellent spit-aim.

i'm with you parq.
  11:36am Cecile:

sorry, Parq.
but, yeah, what you said.
  11:36am gumby:

Please put the gun down and take two steps back
  11:37am stingy d:

don't do it parq, gumby wants to steal the weapon!
  11:40am gumby:

Hey it's spring. That means I have to get out Clifford Brown's version of Joyspring and listen to it like a million times this weekend. WHA-HOOO!!!
  11:41am Peter:

Great, so keep using that talent to improve your fellow man!!
And yes Happiness is a warm gun
  11:41am texas scott:

great show,as always,Doug.

Happy weekend, and Happy Anniversary,
to you and your bride!
  11:41am north guinea hills:

i'm usually less drunk then normal on st. patrick's day., and i have ancestry on both sides of the divide.
  11:42am Parq:

Holden, kid, you know who I miss? I mean really miss? The Immigrant. I mean, I'd just be sitting there in that coffee shop on the corner, the one with that Greek waitress, letting that lousy cup of coffee get cold, and the Immigrant would walk in, and I'd think, oh boy, that's it for the old nationalism . . .
  11:42am stingy d:

aight tho, i'm gonna go watch basketball and eat a sandwhich and then go uptown... thanks for everything doug, and congrats! bye for now everybody.
  11:42am Cecile:

  11:43am Carmichael:

Good morning, everyone. I spit on a dog Tuesday, Stinge. Hit him right on the forehead with a Guinness hocker, Clint-Eastwood style.

Parq, I agree with you 620%. The fake Irish accents (which pisses off those of us with real ones), the feckin' shamrock antennae, the dolts who did 10 minutes of Googling and suddenly know all about Michael Collins and Wolfe Tone, and the *authentic* music of Clannad (who recently changed their name to SynthWash) and the Dropkick Murphys.

I stayed home, traded dirty limericks with me Da, and helped the kids with their math homework. Which gets easier with each pint ...
  11:43am Peter:

take care Stingy!!
  11:44am north guinea hills:

i agree w/ doug's comment .... more fairport, more world peace.... hehe
  11:45am north guinea hills:

i dj'ed on st patricks day on free103point9, and i played no irish music whatsoever....
  11:54am Holden Caulfield:

What really knocks me out is a book, when you're all done reading it, you wished the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it.
  11:56am Parq:

Your usual stellar work on this show, Doug. At the risk of sounding like a bad Dan Rather impression-- courage.
  11:58am Drummer Some:

All hail St. Carmichael's Day! (That was a beautiful soliloquy.)
  11:58am J.D.Salinger:

Ring me up! No, better...come on over! My door's open! I have people of all kinds and reporters and authors and shutterbugs and passing snoopers in all the time for games and sing-alongs and really good talks. I'm a people person! An open book! Let's connect!
  12:02pm Fairport Convention:

Don't know about war...but we couldn't even come near thatching over the kind of claw-hammer-wielding hate seen here today for Barenaked Ladies and St. Paddy's Day symptomaniacs and what all else...
  12:05pm Bob:

Great news: it looks like emusic has "Jammin' in Hi Fi with Gene Ammons." I'll grab anything with both Paul Chambers and Kenny Burrell on it...
