Listener comments!

  12:05pm carly:

what was the first thing you played? before leonard cohen....
  12:05pm dc p:

not the first...
  12:07pm Will:

That was the end of Affection by Jonathan Richman carly
  12:10pm Bad Ronald:

Leonard Cohen Live London 2008 -
  12:10pm Ike:

B. Walker always plays that whiny Jonathan Richman song at the end of his otherwise brilliant, awesome, killer radio show. I can't stand that song. It hits a little close to home for me. Also, his voice is awful -- he's like the male indie rock version of Diane Rehm.
  12:12pm Parq:

As is often the case, I must register a collegial disagreement with Ike - that JR song has always been one of my favorites. But I am hopelessly sentimental.

This guy pays docks?
  12:12pm doug from dc:

ducks! ducks! i paint ducks! i paint ducks on my blanket!
  12:13pm Pearly Sweets:

Ike just ripped my heart out and ate it.
  12:14pm Parq:

Maybe he pays docs - you know, chronic health problems. He's foreign, so he's used to free medical care.
  12:14pm I'm with Ike:

Love Ben and Jonathan, hate that song
  12:15pm AlizaEss:

O.k., so I'm not the one one who heard ducks. Phew.
  12:16pm Ike:

Doug from DC: HA! I thought so too! Reminds me of my birthplace's second-biggest tourist attraction:

Pearly: I didn't eat it yet. I'm still sauteeing and seasoning it. Not enough garlic or cumin.
  12:18pm annie:

i always just recognize the song as part of the show and leave it at that. oh.. and... woohoo somewhat close to first comment!!
  12:23pm annie:

i missed BW this am, just got home. greetings to all. goodmorning liz
  12:23pm Parq:

Annie! Puppy?
  12:23pm Devin:

Whata fun show this morning Liz!
  12:23pm dc pat:

Jonathan Richmon rules--that song is a perfect example of why he's so great. There's nothing like him..
  12:24pm Liz B.:

Hey everyone, anyone see the airplane madness this morning?
  12:24pm still b/p:

Is this the Checker that "Space" threw over to escape the vacuum?
  12:24pm annie:

parq, hopefully she is coming today. and i am also dogsitting for someone, wow.. rain and pouring.
  12:26pm Marshall Stacks:

Didn't see it, Liz, but then I'm in CA. I get nervous when someone in the NYC area mentions "airplane madness" - what happened?
  12:26pm Devin:

Airplane madness?
  12:26pm doug from dc:

I used that Bryon Gysin "I Am" poem in a remix once, and speed it up like that. It makes a good sample.
  12:27pm BrianInIreland:

hi from galway, settling myself in for the show!
  12:28pm dc p:

you shouldn't live in DC if airplanes, jets or bombers flying overhead freak you out.
  12:28pm Parq:

Was up semi-near Annie's way this weekend, in northern Dutchess County (mid-state Hudson River valley, for you who are not nearby). Was hoping for a beutiful spring weekend, instead got a beautiful summer weekend with still-bare trees. Leafless branches and college girls in halter-tops -- very weird combination.
  12:28pm annie:

OMG, just discovered leftover coffee in the glass press!! woohoo, i win! stewart's coffee just doesn't cut it.
  12:28pm Parq:

Brian, welcome. Galway is my favorite Irish county.
  12:29pm dc p:

I've seen "stealth" bombers at least twice and let me tell you, those things are fekkin LOUD.
  12:30pm annie:

parq, i'd love to have you by anytime you want. i will not be sporting a haltertop though. i am 5 miles from downsville. how did your visit go?
  12:31pm still b/p:

You must be mistaken. No one can actually "see" a stealth bomber.
  12:32pm chicago red:

greetings from chicago...have to get ready for work but have no coffee in the house and cant leave the houseto get coffee without coffee ...what do i do, im frozen!
  12:33pm annie:

hhhmmmmmmm, black tea? very dark....
  12:33pm Cecile:

Ike. I agree with you for once. Except the Modern Lovers were indeed teh shit.

Hi annie, hi all, welcome Brian!
  12:34pm annie:

cecile, just reading about ian talty and the river fiasco. bummer...
  12:34pm chicago red:

only decaf tea...why the hell would i have decaf tea in the house?!?!?
  12:34pm Cecile:

and i love Benjamin, so it's all good.
  12:35pm Cecile:

what? what river fiasco?
  12:36pm annie:

  12:36pm chicago red:

oh wait...just founda stash of coke...problem solved
  12:36pm dc p:

Cecile/Ike: Jonathan like to run around, jump. He likes to eat food! How can you not be into that??
  12:37pm still b/p:

Ian Talty and the River Fiasco = GNFA (thrash bluegrass) B
  12:38pm chicago:

though this music is stonger than caffenine
  12:39pm Ike:

Wow, I love the Harappian Night Recordings, Gai/Jan, and Omar S.

DC Punk, you said "JR rules... there's nothing like him." Yeah, in the same way that there's nothing like swine flu! POW! Now lick a pig! ;)
  12:39pm annie:

b/p it would have to be a bill monroe tribute band. since ian just bought the farm, so to speak
  12:39pm Pearly Sweets:

Foot Village is anti-annoying.
  12:40pm Gabe:

That ice cream song is the soundtrack to my nightmares
  12:41pm Pearly Sweets:

DC Pat and I are going to hang out and listen to all of JoJo's early 80s albums and Ike and Cecile aren't invited. We're gonna have all sorts of great food and awesome fun and running around. So There!
  12:41pm Cecile:

So does Milo from the Descendants. I like him better.
Like I said, I will kick anyone's ass to defend the Modern Lovers, and Jonathan was a big part of that. I just don't like much of his later stuff.

Pearly, you guys have an amazing time. I mean it.
  12:43pm dc p:

you got it Pearly!

Ike: there is something like swine flu--your comments! WOOOOOoooo... Ah I love ya Ike..
  12:44pm annie:

parq, if kiddo is still in college next year, bring her over for the OH-fest. a collaboration of hartwick and suny-O music and street party..
  12:44pm Jøe Steele:

Pigs! Planes! Oh the Humanity.
  12:45pm Parq:

Pearly, can I tag along? I like to eat food a lot, and I like other things.
  12:46pm dc pat:

as long as you like other things, you're welcome Parq
  12:47pm still b/p:

The most pumped version of Roadrunner would make me chase cars on Route 128 and not come when called.
  12:52pm Pearly Sweets:

Aw hell. Everyone can come. Even Ike. He can just bring headphones.
  12:54pm dc punk:

Excellent, party at Pearly's house. What's your address??
  12:56pm Cecile:

thanks, Pearly! I will bring banana bread.

Where are City Center from?
  12:57pm annie:

i'm bringin' ginger cookies
  12:57pm Cecile:

  12:59pm Pearly Sweets:

Come on down to Jacksonville, Florida. I start my dj night next monday. We can have a hoe-down with nanner bread!
  1:01pm Cecile:

nice. I will be getting ready for ugh, medical stuff that day, but I will send happy thoughts.
  1:01pm annie:

cecile, pick me up on your way down! (where are the musical notations when you want them?)
  1:05pm Cecile:

Wow, this is like some one heard "LIttle Trouble Girl" and decided to base their whole life on it. pretty cute.
  1:07pm GP:

Liz, is today an all new music show? IF so it is getting off to a great start.
  1:10pm Liz B.:

Thanks GP, it's mostly new music today, but I guess I play mostly new music every week... Ha, way to be non-committal about a theme!
  1:14pm GP:

Yeah, I guess so, I can't say that I have ever heard the same thing twice on your show...I'm still out of it being Monday, and all that..still trying to wake up.
  1:28pm annie:

air-force one NYC story
  1:34pm dc punk:

  1:35pm annie:

  1:35pm Bad Ronald:

I'm on the 27th floor and the damn planes were at eye level.
  1:36pm dc p:

weird abe vigoda song
  1:37pm detroitdave:

abe vigoda....ubangi stomp.......must be early.
  1:43pm An Impressively Large Carbon Footprint:

Your tax dollars at work smells like jet exhaust..(but we got some GREAT photos).
  1:44pm Bad Ronald:

Who the hell needs another picture of the Statue of Liberty?
  1:45pm Fake Air Force One:

sorry! a teleprompter told me to do it!
  1:47pm annie:

BR- they lookin to get another great shot of your LEFT side!
  1:47pm belmont:

what is this bed music?
  1:48pm Bad Ronald:

LOLz Annie!
  1:48pm Abe Vigoda:

Do you realize how many times I run into people on the street and they act astonished and say: "Gee, I thought you were dead." Man, is it depressing.
  1:48pm Cecile:

so Meeeechigan boys.
I know a City Center in Mpls, and also one in Detroit.
  1:50pm Jerry Garcia:

Say what?
  1:54pm Jøe Steele:

My eyes hurt. Is it swine flu?
  1:57pm detroitdave:

Ben's show broke the real story of who spread the swine flu......don't let that pig likkin kid touch you!
  1:58pm Barry:

Hey, everybody just drop a chill pill. Are we cool?
  1:59pm doug:

is it swine flu? i dont know. i thought the media was supposed to obsess over shark attacks in the summer.
and i'm no doctor, but 100 deaths isnt really much and from what i can figure the fatality rate is only a few percent.
  2:01pm detroitdave:

Liz hit the groove early today......YAY!
  2:01pm Dude flashing back to May 1968:

Off the f-in' pigs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2:03pm Swine Flu:

Guys, I'm just trying to hang out with my friends AIG, The Man, Octomom, Ray Manzarek, Susan Boyle, and AIDS. Chill out.
  2:04pm Susan B.:

Watch out, or I'll sing again!
  2:06pm joe:

  2:08pm British Football Fan:

  2:12pm Cecile:

Yea, though I walk down the boulevard of death, I have no fear.
  2:12pm AnAnonymousParty:

  2:14pm belly hop:

  2:14pm Legionnaire's Disease:

  2:14pm Swine Flu:

  2:15pm The Flying Luttenbachers:

Everybody is always talking about those damn listravians :(, , , , , ,
  2:16pm The Plague:

Get off my lawn!
  2:16pm Bubonic Plague:

Damn wannabes.
  2:17pm The Sturgeon General:

What's freaking the public health people out about this swine flu outbreak is that it's been killing "young, healthy adults." (Ya know, like your typical WFMU listener.) Flu typically only kills the very young, old, or infirm.

So there's some concern that this could be the start of a pandemic, like 1918's.

We now return you to Liz B. blowing our Monday morning minds.
  2:17pm Cecile:

Liz, if you are hankering to play the new Bats disc, I have two words for you: Crooked Path.

thank you.
  2:18pm Philip Morris:

Child's play...
  2:19pm dc p:

  2:20pm Cecile:

  2:20pm American Morturary Association:

Recession? Pfft.
  2:21pm Bad Ronald:

  2:21pm Grass:

I am the grass, and i'm gonna cover you all. FYI.
  2:23pm detroitdave:

  2:25pm Homer Simpson's cow:

Mmmmmm .... grass/
  2:25pm Family Guy:

I know what to do with grass.

  2:26pm seamus:

holy smokes!
  2:26pm dc p:

say Liz, how do you define "New" -- w/in last year? Just curious.
  2:26pm Blotto:

Liz, I wanna be your lifeguard.
  2:27pm Pearly Sweets:

In the new bin? I think it means it is in the new bin.
  2:27pm detroitdave:

magic plants..............wild baby!
  2:28pm AnAnonymousParty:

Is it ironic that the first thing that wasn't 'new' was the New Pornographers?
  2:29pm mb:

looking forward to hear you rock the Mr. T soundbytes on Fri, Liz. Embrace your inner T.
  2:30pm Old Pornographers:

I miss stores with sticky floors in scaryass parts of town :-( :-(
  2:33pm Doug McClure:

What the Hell's wrong with being from West Virginia?
  2:35pm Witness Non-Protection Services:

You were on the Mike Douglas show, Doug, potted of your ass! I saw you!
  2:37pm SARS:

Let's just take a moment to realize that I own each and every one of you and your names are Toby. Swine Flu, I'll see you in the steel cage this Sunday. OH YEAH!
  2:38pm Doug Funny:

This song reminds me of banging on a trashcan... drumming on a streetlight.
  2:38pm jen v.:

i am more than okay with this oldie.
  2:38pm Jøe Steele:

Please, SARS aint got nothin.

  2:39pm SARS:

I'll get you in the hammerlock and then do the crusher, Joe!
  2:39pm dc p:

Whoa! Weren't we just talkin about Ari Up? .....oh, guess just I was..

So tell me why King Kahn is playing the 930 in dc? Are they big shit now??
  2:41pm Ernie Bola:

Oh no you dint, no you dint jus come into my house.

It's on now. Helllllooooo Western hempishphere.
  2:45pm Duff:

The Flying Listravians? I know those folks -- beer-drinkin' Appalachian noise folk, maybe?
  2:45pm Small Pox:

Don't worry, Ladies. It is just a name. ;)
  2:46pm Ike:

Uh oh, is Clay Pigeon playing music for three hours at 3? I LOVE his stories, monologues, interviews, etc. and he's a really sweet dude but his dusty, Velveeta-tastic taste in music doesn't do it for me. Not that there's anything wrong with Velveeta. Just not for me thanks. I'll take musical habanero jack and comte instead.
  2:46pm Ike:

Like this for instance!
  2:47pm Cecile:

I like Clay's dusties. Not all of them, but quite a few of them.
  2:48pm Herpes not so Simplex:

No one cares about me anymoreeeeeeeeeeeeeeee....
  2:48pm Pearly Sweets:

I hope he only plays cassettessss
  2:49pm Whooping Cough:

  2:49pm Mother Goose:

......Ashes, ashes; we all fall down
  2:50pm Ike:

Sorry, I don't know why I rambled on like that. I should shut it. I just have insane nightmares that once CBS-FM and other oldies stations go all-'80s, all the oldies fanatics will try to take over WFMU. I know, craaaaazy.
  2:50pm Syphilis:

VD's!!!! Reprezent!!!!!!!!!! Bringit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Props, peepz!!!!!!
  2:53pm GP:

Liz, What is the name of that DJ that fills in sometimes and plays the REALLY old stuff? I mean like Victorian age 78's..I heard him one night and could not stop listening to that old stuff.
  2:55pm GP:

Did I just step into a Kylie Minogue video?
  2:55pm G.:

The 78s-era slot is currently Tuesday nights 7-8? Two DJs alternate weeks usually, yes?
  2:56pm jaypee:

ZOMG.. this is awesome. Love the 303ish action.
  2:57pm GP:

I can't remember what night since I usually only listen during the day through the computer at work. He was a crusty old dude, but had some really funny commentary.
  2:58pm annie:

might have been the old codger
  2:59pm G.:

The "Old Coot" (actual handle escaping me) used to do the Tuesday 7-8 slot and for whatever reason was last on the schedule in about mid 08.
  2:59pm GP:

I think you are right! He played some very cool stuff. I could imagine my grandparents dancing to it when they were youngsters.
  2:59pm SARS:

We love you too, Liz! Maybe we'll visit soon!
  3:00pm Liz's Doctor:

Call me, K?
  3:00pm Alex:

Don't forget your maskies, my brothers.
  3:00pm Jøe Steele:

Lotsa ♥ for Liz
  3:00pm Cecile:

Later taters!
Good show, Liz!
