A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

  Thu. 11/12/09 11:28am Carmichael:

Unfortunately, Ken is all too versed in zapping someone off the page. From what little I understand about it, it's rather difficult for an administrator at your typical workplace.
  Thu. 11/12/09 11:29am krebstar:

this is the coolest gospel(??) song I've ever heard--
new Genre -- psych soul gospel?
  Thu. 11/12/09 11:30am george eliot:

Any funk collection entitled "Good God" must be worth its weight in gold.
  Thu. 11/12/09 11:33am Adrian in London:

Thanks Ken. Great show today, Trouble. Respect to Mr J.
  Thu. 11/12/09 11:35am george eliot:

  Thu. 11/12/09 11:39am Cecile:

collards and kale actually are great cold-weather crops. They can handle a hard frost.
  Thu. 11/12/09 11:40am dc pat:

collards rule
  Thu. 11/12/09 11:40am Cecile:

  Thu. 11/12/09 11:41am dc pat:

you know, it's amazing how well behaved FMU commenters are for the most part

He's wrong about collards, eat them. They good.
  Thu. 11/12/09 11:42am annie:

  Thu. 11/12/09 11:45am Cecile:

  Thu. 11/12/09 11:46am annie:

my chef at the cafe made the best olive-oil marinated kale... drizzle olive oil all over chopped kale drizzle liberally.. soak over night, kazowie!!! no cook, raw kale salad..
  Thu. 11/12/09 11:46am dc pat:

annie: the usual, witty banter, Ken banning people,...you know....
  Thu. 11/12/09 11:47am dc pat:

annie: I just made that--use some garlic and salt and work it into the kale first.
  Thu. 11/12/09 11:49am v k:

one's soul gets more from "giving" than "getting" - fo' sure - no doubt about it - be it DJ'ing, working with kids, the homeless, etc.
  Thu. 11/12/09 11:49am annie:
