Listener comments!


morning bw!!

good morning all
lots planned for today. check out the significant objects link in the first track.. Josh will be on the radio at 11 to talk about his awesome project.. PLUS who wants to be a roger corman/vincent price expert at 1030 - Iforgot to email the anthology film archives folks! so I need someone to step up - read wikipedia ! anyone wants to do this at 1030 email me.. bwalker@gmail.com

morn'n annie - not on strike today but striking it lucky catching your show bw !!!

pmp- it's nice to see your regular presence once again... how are your kids, btw?

I am so scattered caus I got to meet R. Crumb last night

bw- Daily Beast has a story about steven king and his newest foray into comics... vampires.. collaborating with scott snyder.

wow!! r crumb!! may i touch you?
jeroen kuster:

you makes my Monday thanks jeroen from Rotterdam the Netherlands

thnx for great show!
that confusion/information diagram is so spot on - where does it originate from?

annie - thanks for reminding me i've got some!!! been otherwise distracted recently! they're fine thanks, tom is less than a year away from attending university already, jack will be out of his ivory tower in 6 months and ready to take on the world. and my darling daughter jo is in the thick of it, fortunately busy. how are yours my dear?

all the diagrams come from the internets! Crumb didn't like me much.. mostly the ladies were captivating his attention but we talked some!

is jo still interested in the stage? i hope so.. so much fun and a great way to express oneself. my kiddo is doing well. he is ekeing by in san diego; finally moved in to his own studio apt near the beach. he is happy; writing a new screenplay, sending out video clips of his work, looking for jobs.. he is finally rid of the "loose change" albatross, that has kept him so occupied these last seven year. his latest projects are intriguing.. if you do youtube, i can link you to his channel..

bw, crumb does prefer the ladies, to be sure.

must return to the office annie, pooo - pleased to hear your boy is also in the thick of it too, i'll speak to you soon about his channel!

okok last one I promise!
dc pat:

man, for some reason it's good to hear Gary Numan right now. All I've been listening to all weekend is Dean Carter--guy was a genius.
Listener James from Westwood:

Oh, you were far from cranky yesterday a.m. And I think you were a lot more awake than some of our early-arriving guests. Even a pretty fall Sun morning in NYC can be a cruel mistress after a fun Sat nite. But that's why we have caffeine. And records for the buyin'. Excellent to have worked with you, and have a fine rest of the show! —James

I posted the video from the Synth documentary
dc pat:


BW, Good Morning...oh man the link to the Significant Objects site..how did you know that I needed more distractions in my life?

LOL... one of my coworkers said that it sounds like Scooby saying "Hot Tub"..or "Rot Rub"..instead of "Hot stuff".

Apologies to Ruk Chua Nirundon.

thank you gp -- 'hot stuff' ! The long distant familiar, but I don't recognize/remember the words..

TRS: Donna Summer ..disco era.It si weird because I just heard the song at Sat. night at some bar where they had a cover band playing mostly 70's hitz.

Aw, I've missed so much! Hope all are well.

Back when she was queen.

Good morning, Bee Dub and friends.

BW, R Crumb lived down the road from me for many years, until he packed it in for Paris (I believe). I infrequently shared a glass of wine with him and listened to selections from his MASSIVE collection of 78s. Those were the days.

Carmichael, yea, I heard he is a record collecting fiend to an almost unhealthy level, but VERY knowledgeable about the old 78's.

Read some stuff about him online..he has a rather <ahem> interesting relationship with his wife.

Nice interview Mr. Walker!
Josh Glenn:

Thanks for having me on, Ben! And all you R Crumb fans -- we have some cartoonists/comics writers who've contributed to the Significant Objects experiments, including Ben Katchor, Dean Haspiel, and Annie Nocenti. Also, last week, we ran three cartoon stories written by students at James Sturm's Center for Cartoon Studies.

wow wow Charmichael - that sounds pretty amazingly amazing

he still is at the rekord thing.. I tried to get him interested in coming to the show if he comes back to nyc (the whole Genesis will go up at the Zwirner Gallery - all 200 pages - in feb)

Thank you, mind-openers at wfmu! The more obscure the better, I love it. Significant objects site: cool!

new devotee from the Netherlands

Welcome Eric!

If you will recall, it was via a mutual interest in old 78s that Art Crumb first got to know Harvey Pekar. At least, that's the way it's portrayed in the movie version of Pekar's autobio.

Thanks for playing La Banda's!

Just one small correction: the name of the track played during the show is Videla's Jam, not Waitin'.

Best, Jose.

thanks for playing La Banda´s too
sorry José but the name of the track played during the show is Cindys Jam, not Waitin´and not Videla´s
