Listener comments!

  3:24pm Will BeTheBoy:

Happy New Year! Thank you for playing that fantastic King Tuff song. Can't wait to hear the rest of the show.
  3:30pm Topkat:

Hi Terre and everyone, I have to say 2009 was a super stressful year for me and really kinda sucky....I expect the first quarter, at least, of 2010 to be more of the same. However, having said that, a few really nice things were done for my benefit in the last few weeks of the year that have caused me to be cautiously hopeful about the year ahead.
Happy New Year to you all.
  3:40pm Patrick:

hey terry, outta work early and im able to listen live!! wooo! your making my grad school apps a little easyer!! happy snow day!
  3:45pm seang:

there is no time!
  4:07pm Wendy del Formaggio:

TERRE! Happy New Year! I just tuned in and missed hearing the KING TUFF track. Too bad, because I've known Kyle since he was 13 years old and it would be a cool thing to hear him on FMU. Anyway, thanks for making waking up easier today! :-D
  4:13pm Hector:

Hello Terre! Nice selection today (well, always!)
  4:19pm Jahna:

Happy New Year!!! Lots of hugs to you all!

  4:33pm hellbilly13:

Happy New Year,Terre! Awsome show! So far, this Top 10 list is the #1 Top 10 list of this years' Top 10 Top 10 lists! (Phew)!
  4:34pm Tony B:

if we hadn't been home awaiting the #1 album we would've missed delivery of xmas presents from the east coast. New Siltbreeze product and vintage bar set now in hand! Happy New Year, Terre!!
  4:39pm andy/sunderland:

New Siltbreeze is always good! I liked the Tyvek album from this year. Great show Terre, I saw King Khan last year and it was actually the best gig i've ever seen. They even let me play the organ at the end! Best wishes for 2010!
  4:47pm Jed:

  4:49pm Knuckles:

#1 DJ 0f 2009 and ongoing champeen- Terre T! Happy 2010. PS: The Choke supports the ZEROS at the Casbah in San Diego CA tonite!! (Their last show before European tour!)
  4:51pm frenchee:

I'm staying in till I hear TT's NO. 1 associate producer of 2009. Maybe a nice vintage bar set will appear at MY house?
  4:54pm eyenoise:

Great show, TT. Always a few records that I must go buy from your list every year. Happy New Year. OBITS was my #1!
  5:01pm Ian Zamboni:

Pitch perfect lists!
  5:09pm Ian Zamboni:

  5:16pm fred:

Topkat, I hereby dispel/revoke all suckiness coming your way this year, you've had enough. I may have no authority to do so, but it"s worth a try, who had authority to curse you with a sucky year anyway?
  5:20pm Topkat:

fred, I dunno but THANK YOU for the good mojo you have tossed my way!
  5:21pm Hugh Effen-Bastid:

Wow! Iggy ripped off TV Eye from Reverberation?
  5:30pm EW:

Was that SRC tune a flashing lights cover or vice versa?
  5:32pm Ian Zamboni:

I easily end up spending a hundred bucks or more because of Terre T's best of lists.
  5:36pm andy_sunderland:

Moneywise i'm glad that 13th Floor Elevators box is sold out! Almost.
  5:40pm Marija S.:

Hi Terre! I am actually glad I went on-line tonight and can catch some of your show.... it's not too often I'm home on Saturday night!!! Hope all is well!! :-)
  5:49pm Ron:

Happy new year to Terre and Mike and all the associate producers! Terre T, youve done it again - another awesome show. This might be the best of 2009, but YOU are the best of 2009 and 2010! Keep rocking - we need yoU!!!
  5:51pm Topkat:
