  Sun. 10/24/10 12:22am cheri:

  Sun. 10/24/10 12:23am Joe McG:

Aw, darn, I could've brought some Candi, but alas, I didn't pack any!
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:27am cheri:

no worries joe,,but can you play a tune just for me,,,i'll be listening,,thnx joe,,
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:27am Joe McG:

If only I'd brought "Cheri" by 20/20! I'll see what I can do....
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:38am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

hey man
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:40am Joe McG:

Hey, Bill! Have fun at the Record Fair yesterday?
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:41am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

yeah but you know what. If you are hardcore, crate digging is a LOT of work
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:42am Joe McG:

Sure be! It's hard to find old skippy 45s!
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:43am cheri:

well joe i have have to split ,this is my last comment ,,but don't worry i'll still be be tuned in ty joe
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:44am Joe McG:

Take care, Cheri! Thanks for checking in!
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:44am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

i mean i love the fair, but it is completely overwhelming. you are not going to get to everything and you are trying to guess who has what you want
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:44am Julie:

I went to the record fair and I got a rock
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:46am Julie:

this is true, bill! I Think it is a close your eyes and dive in and maybe you get lucky. Ooooh X-ray!! good stuff
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:49am Joe McG:

I think Julie's right. Dive in somewhere. You may not find anything, but you may come up with a pearl.
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:50am Julie:

okay I think I's be needing some The Savage Rose
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:51am Julie:

I hadn't been in like five years...I did walk out with a handful of cheapies from the FMU table
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:51am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

i never get what i want but i always leave with a think bag of stuff that i would never get anyplace else. The scooby do 1970 take on a Diana ross track
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:52am Julie:

scooby do? Now that sounds interesting. I came REAL close to getting a John Davidson LP (how can I miss him singing Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da) but I got crowded out and passed. ah well..
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:53am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

no rocks though
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:54am Julie:

Bill, you weren't lookin hard enough ;)
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:55am Julie:

I am digging the female vox here Joe!
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:55am Joe McG:

Cool, Julie! I love this single.
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:56am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

na na the scooby do thing was a metephore. i just discovered that the way to work the record fair is you don't go in with an agenda. you just buy shit that you can;t get anyplace else as it turns up
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:56am Julie:

now this international stuff I don't know, I would never know what to look for. I've got a friend in Romania been trying to find some artists from there
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:57am Julie:

the 45 shows are so much fun...
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:58am Julie:

she streamed FMU on tuesday and her computer got fried. ha
  Sun. 10/24/10 12:59am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

yeah i got hung up on that to. there was a guy on the wall facing 18th st who had a lot of it but it was not cheap, and you REALLY have to know what you are buying with, say, french music. I kept looking for Andy votel type stuff
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:00am Julie:

orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrg..nice ;) Hey that last track reminded me of Fairport and Sandy I guess you too!
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:01am Julie:

yeah every time something caught my eye it was like some $45 piece of vinyl...so I wrestled my way into the $1 bins
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:02am Joe McG:

Indeed!
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:02am Julie:

I gotta get out of france. I love my french music but I have so much of it. I need a new country to obsess over.
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:03am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

i guess the thing to do is become a BILLIONAIRE, walk into the fair on Friday at four with a u-hall,= slip scott williams half a million and then just have scott and liz start packing
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:04am Julie:

with that kinda money you can take scott and liz home with you to spin them for you
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:07am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

yes. THE REAL RECORD COLLECTORS of new jersey on reality TV. No one would watch a show with nice people playing Krautrock
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:08am Julie:

was that 45 from '49 made of polystyrene or vinyl?
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:09am Julie:

haha seriously has Hoarders done a record collection episode yet?
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:12am Julie:

I'm taking Genesis Hall as my porn name
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:14am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

oh don't say thaqt (ha ha)., Hoarding is irrational. Record collectors are insane but the collecting itself is a perfectly natural act. Ten thousand General Electric blenders, five thousand ABC impulse records. Which is more sane
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:15am Julie:

who told you about my blenders!
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:16am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

record collecting porn: interesting image. Orgasms to Ornette Coleman
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:17am Julie:

This is odd that it's only Bill & I commenting. It's as if we're on some odd date and Joe is supplying the music.
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:17am Mike Sin:

Gentleman Joe completely charmed the lady shoppers up front at the WFMU stand today at the rec fair. I took some notes.
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:18am Julie:

Freedman has the best record collecting porn collection EVER
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:18am Julie:

Yes, Mike, he has that way about him. We all come up and ruffle his hair
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:19am Joe McG:

No, MIke, they charmed ME. :)
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:19am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

J: are you a dj at fmu? were you there last night (fri)
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:20am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

joe will tell you i am the skinny little guy who walks like a drunk, right joe?:
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:21am Julie:

Yes I'm the Julie who was babysitting for Billy, Chris & Finewine last night
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:22am Julie:

bill if you are a frequent volunteer we've probably met
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:22am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

ok
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:22am Julie:

and I'm a DJ too, or so they tell me
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:23am Julie:

Billy Jam is the only person who can get me to listen to three hours of hiphop
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:23am cheri:

joe i hate to be a pain but have you got any halloween 45s?? just a thought,,
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:23am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

ummmmmmmmmmm.....i only did it once so far and that was a few weeks before the fair, which is how i met joe and made him laugh
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:24am Joe McG:

No pain are you, Cheri....I think I might have one for you in the next set or shortly thereafter!
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:24am Julie:

Joe never laughs at my jokes. He doesn't like my coffee either. (SNIFF)
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:25am Julie:

are there any 7"inch singles that play at 78? Happy Hawaii sounds just like "why did it have to be you"
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:26am Julie:

oh and joe has explained that...haha
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:26am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

well, he was talking about rock stars who become jahova witnesses so i asked if you are a rock god and you convert to that faith, do you still go door to door passing out watctowers
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:27am Julie:

darnit Joe stop playing interesting stuff I keep meaning to go to bed
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:27am Julie:

Michael Jackson did
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:28am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

that is what archives are for.

and look what happened to him
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:29am Radio Bear:

Is Wire next?
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:30am Julie:

it's the radio bear! I'm a big fan <3
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:30am Julie:

Bill : I can't talk to you and tease Joe on the archives :)
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:31am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

ok, ok, go and have your fun
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:34am Julie:

if there was fun to be had I wouldn't be here! But time to depart...nice to meet you, Bill, good to see ya Joe, and great show! Will catch up in archive :)
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:35am Julie:

"Dispensing with vinyl for your pleasure".
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:37am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

next week the whole exhausted staff is playing 45 minute ambient pieces on MP3
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:38am Joe McG:

Sounds like an idea, Bill! Take care, Julie, thanks for checkin' in!
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:41am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

all the programming will be like the first hour of Stan's show
  Sun. 10/24/10 1:44am coalhard:

  Sun. 10/24/10 1:47am coalhard:

  Sun. 10/24/10 2:14am Joe McG:
