Listener comments!

  12:02pm Carmichael:

Mornin' Liz!
  12:09pm Liz B.:

Hi Carmichael and all others awakening to another Monday!
  12:28pm Mark L:

And those UK listeners listening after a day at work!
  12:34pm Liz B.:

Indeed, welcome office bees near and abroad!
  12:43pm Mark L:

The Risil track was amazing, I'll buy that album I think.
  12:44pm risky!:

GET EM LIZ!!!! Can I get some Black Pus!?!? LB is coming to Philly the 31st. R I S K Y is hyped
  12:54pm Jim Teacher:

That version of "I Want You Back" was pretty sick.
  12:57pm paula:

why air the dirty laundry?
  12:57pm joe:

I'm horrified that you'd broadcast other people's business like that. Admitting that you dont know the guy even. Youre surely not very bright
  12:58pm doug:

you cant say anything to either of them. it will never work out cause either you are right and he screws up again and it ends badly. or you are wrong and are forever a jerk in their eyes.

write a nasty letter, put it in an envelope, let it sit on the kitchen table for a few days then throw it away in the recycling.
  12:58pm yori:

Threat him. That fear might sink in him and he will always think twice before hurting her !
Love the show..love
  12:58pm eeeedeeeeee:

id marry him
and im married
  12:58pm Mac:

About your friend... You can't save people from themselves. You can only wish them well and give her support regardless of how it finally turns out. (and without naming names, that other poster is full of it)
  12:58pm v k:

u can't win being critical of a friend's significant other - if they stay together, u'll be resented; if they break-up and ur friend misses this guy, u'll be resented - +, u only know half the story - we all know there is his version, her version, and then there is the truth my 2 cents
  12:59pm annie:

liz, big bummer.. yes.. i think a group picture of all the pised off friends with shaking fists!!.. i know in the past, i've regretted not saying anything ... i surely hope they had a serious chat before they decided to take this step...
  1:02pm eeeee deeee:

ive married four guys and there all bums
but who cares
its all for fun anyway
  1:02pm Carmichael:

I would buy a pickup, move to British Columbia and become a fencing contractor. I would also change my name to Shirley.
  1:02pm Liz B.:

Thanks for chiming in everyone! I really want this guy to be the man of her dreams, but I find that difficult to believe given what he did to her just a few months ago...
  1:03pm Ike:

Ouch Liz! Mac is right -- some people are determined to make bad decisions. And wow, that's a weird reaction from "paula" and "joe." DJs should be able to speak out about this stuff. Why the hell not?
  1:03pm marybear:

bite your tongue and just be supportive. she's going to do what she wants in the end anyway. great playlist today so far! play us a song that expresses how you feel about the situation :)
  1:03pm Doctor B.:

I have seen people do what your friend's doing all the time. It doesn't seem rational because it's not. Emotions will definitely make us do things which are not in our best interests (how do you think Rush, Ann and Bill manage to get people to hang on their every word?)

Your friend is obviously very vulnerable and suggestible. She's not over her old relationship, so a second chance seems very appealing, even to the point of ignoring the old relationship's very real bad points. This is a very, very common after-breakup scenario. (Been there, done that). She needs to be reminded of why her ex became her ex in the first place. Of course she will need a lot of emotional support from her friends. Bottom line is, call off the damned wedding. Now.
  1:07pm eee dee:

sweetie ,,,, just relax
have a few
then have a few more
it ll all be over soon enough
  1:13pm Marshall Stacks:

I agree with Mac and marybear, though Carmichael makes some excellent points.

As for playing a song that expresses how you feel, that Discovery track might have done so.
  1:21pm PMD:

Funny, this Jansch song sounds like old Rolling Stones.
  1:34pm annie:

  1:37pm Cynthia:

  1:39pm annie:

drat!!! just as i'm leaving the house, you play this rocking beat shit stuff!!! nice... very very nice.. now i have to stay in this cool house for another few minutes!! ;)
  1:42pm cynthia:

p.s. I totally did it to your playlist this morning. (hawt)
  1:47pm Josh:

My feeling is that if you were to say something to someone, it would be to talk to your friend, not her fiance. If you're seriously considering saying something to him though, then you should seriously consider saying something to who I feel is the right person: her. Not knowing the guy is irrelevant. You know your friend and you believe what she says happened between them previously. If you know any of her other friends well enough it might make sense to talk to them first. If you decide to talk to her, consider asking questions more than making statements. "What made you change your mind about him?" "It hasn't been that long since ___. Do you think he's truly changed?" Maybe a girls' night out is in order. Someplace where she'll get attention from other men, be reminded that he's not her only option. If she finds out you talked about this on the air, then the cat's out of the bag. You might as well have her read these comments too. It's often easier to accept advice from total strangers, maybe because they seem more objective.
  1:47pm jonathan:

a friend's little sister's friend is called sophie wigg - this buraka song is quite popular amongst their group of friends. wiggy wiggy wiggy wiggy!
  1:53pm monica:

nice tunes up in this piece! re: your friend, leave it alone. she needs to learn for herself what's good for her and what isn't. it ain't about that guy, it's about her choices.
  1:54pm monica:

guess what i'm sayin' is that it's a starter marriage fer chrissakes!
  1:55pm annie:

i'm noticing a varied and diverse range of suggestions, each having its own merits. of all of them, i love the letter on the table overnight method.. and burn it,
  1:56pm Liz B.:

Oh you guys on the playlist comments are always right, I guess I shouldn't threaten to kick the teeth out of my buddy's fiancee if he makes another wrong turn.
  2:39pm cynthia:

Sounds reasonable to me.
  2:44pm Joab:

Killer sets all day at WFMU!!!!!!
  2:46pm Ike:

Joab is right!
  2:48pm Liz B.:

Thanks everyone! Monday Powah!
  2:53pm Parq:

I was out on a lunch break during the Dear Abbey portion of the program, but the music I've heard was reet. Also like to mention, I've been really enjoying "Amps Across The Hudson". The family was a little jarred when the "Oh my God, he's killing me" track came up during dinner last night. You'd think they'd be used to it by now.
  2:57pm jeremy the listener:

that pissed jeans track rocked.
