Listener comments!

  6:01am
Chuck:

Hey there! Feeling better I trust...
  6:02am
Meghan:

Hello! Yes, million times better!
  6:02am
Michael from Munich:

The volume is very low on the web stream.
  6:03am
Meghan:

Did that fix it?
  6:03am
Chuck:

Good! Don't recommend any drinking for you as of yet. Maybe later...
  6:04am
Michael from Munich:

I just noticed that it's only the left channel
  6:04am
Meghan:

Thanks Michael...... Lemme see if I can fix that..... I wasn't sure if one of the speakers here was blown
  6:05am
Chuck:

Yes, here too. Thought it was just my stereo....
  6:05am
Rob from Maryland:

Were you out last week, Meghan? I didn't have electricity last Thursday morning so I couldn't listen to the show?
  6:06am
Meghan:

Ahhhhh, THERE we go!

Yes Rob, I was suffering from the flu or something. That Wednesday I was fighting a fever..... fun fun
  6:06am
Michael from Munich:

Thanks for fixing this.
  6:07am
Rob from Maryland:

Oh no, Meghan. I'm glad you're better. I'll turn the audio for FMU right now.
  6:07am
Meghan:

Danke schone for letting me know!
  6:08am
Elwyn:

Hey everyone!

Alcohol-spiked fruitcups for everyone!
I'm in time for AC/DC or as well like to pronounce in Australia "acker dacker"!
  6:09am
pierre:

Bonjour, Meghan thank for becoming my friend on the FMA. And glad to hear the drinking show. Hope you are feeling better.
  6:09am
procedura:

cheers!
  6:09am
Chuck:

More rum, Elwyn! This is the "wakey, wakey" set...
  6:09am
Meghan:

Good Evening Elwyn!

Ah! Pierre, so that is YOU! Nice!
  6:11am
Meghan:

Good morning, afternoon and evening to everyone! It's happy hour somewhere, right?
  6:12am
procedura:

here's the hangover hour
  6:13am
Rob from Maryland:

Oooh, Meghan, you should do a hangover show?
  6:14am
Meghan:

Ha! Actually the hangover was me yesterday..... ooof!
  6:16am
Rob from Maryland:

Do you ever feel like this?
http://hungoverowls.tumblr.com/
  6:17am
Chuck:

I think it's possible that Dave is having his right now. hehe....
  6:17am
pierre:

well its 12.16 pm here, so i'm drinking a glass of wine with my pizza.
  6:19am
Meghan:

HA! Not fully like that.... more like- Just make everything be quiet and give me my bed and dog to snuggle with.....
  6:21am
Chuck:

Fun stuff, Rob!
Funny now that I think of it I don't recall the last time I had a hangover. Must be I was to drunk to remember it!
  6:23am
Rob from Maryland:

:-) I haven't had a hangover in ages either. I still remember a couple though, they were all too memorable.
  6:25am
Rob from Maryland:

Meghan, thanks for finding that Fastbacks song last time. Unfortunately I'd already left the house when it came on. And I saw from the playlist that you played the Popguns!!
  6:26am
Meghan:

Ah no worries! I try to get songs in... sometimes I can, sometimes, like today..... there isn't a way!
  6:27am
pierre:

aah Spike Jones always do the tricks
  6:27am
Chuck:

Yeah, Meg, there has to be thousands upon thousands of drinking song!
  6:28am
pierre:

And Now Boris Vian !!! Meghan you are the best !
  6:29am
Rob from Maryland:

It's all good. I can't think of any drinking songs to request anyway (see last hangover comment above).
  6:30am
Chuck:

How did you southerners make out snow/ice wise, Meghan?
  6:32am
Meghan:

The WFMU parking lot is like a skating rink. All the piles of snow are just iced over. Bosco doesn't know what to do. He can partially walk on top and then falls through. It's messing with his doggy brain
  6:33am
Rob from Maryland:

Ah, the Tom Waits song!!
Chuck, what do you mean, "southerners"?
Meghan, it sounds like an epic storm up there.
  6:34am
Chuck:

Yeah, I've got a 4' snow bank on either side of my walk from shoveling! G'Kar isn't happy about it either, although he is out right now...
  6:35am
Chuck:

It's a bit of a joke, Rob. I live in the Catskills of upstate NY...
  6:36am
Rob from Maryland:

Four foot snowdrift!? Wow. Something that never happens down here in the tropics of Maryland. Don't worry, I figured it was a joke.
  6:38am
Chuck:

The bank from plowing my driveway is over 6' high, Rob!
  6:38am
Elwyn:

Cant imagine a drinking show without at least one Tom song
  6:39am
Chuck:

Because Tom always sounds drunk anyway. Ha!
  6:40am
Elwyn:

The only possible illness around here could be heat stroke.

I missed that Meteors song. Was that a cover of the Ramones song?
  6:41am
Rob from Maryland:

Chuck, that sounds like our big blizzard of, yikes, a year ago.
Elwyn, Tom Waits is almost a drinking song in and of himself. As is Shane McGowan.
  6:41am
Chuck:

How is Jeff's knee, Meg?
  6:41am
ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Hey there peoples!? Hope everyone is doing well out there!
  6:42am
Chuck:

Beer!!!
  6:43am
Meghan:

Good Morning ALF!

@Chuck, he's in the middle of a slow recovery. So he's cranky, but has sort of gone back to work this week, minus the snow days....
  6:45am
Chuck:

I don't blame him, Meghan. I'd be cranky too if I was immobilized for a long time...
  6:57am
Elwyn:

Wow. I can now name three different songs named "Red Red Wine".
  7:05am
Chuck:

We needed some cheese to go with the wine...
  7:05am
Listener Bill:

If you're going to drink all day, you have to start in the morning.
  7:06am
Meghan:

Exactly Bill...... Start with some mimosas or bloody mary's..... mmm, a nice spicy with lots of horseradish bloody sounds good actually
  7:08am
Chuck:

My friend likes to make bloody marys with clam-mato juice...
  7:09am
Elwyn:

Does anyone have any good drinking stories?

This is the best I can offer:
After seeing The New Pornographers in Melbourne last year, some of them came out and signed autographs. While Kathryn Calder was around and we were in a group (I didn't want to seem like I was hitting on her), I asked her "Hey, do you want to get shitfaced with us? You know we won't let you miss the plane or anything!" She was a bit shocked by that.
  7:09am
Meghan:

ha! nice one Elwyn!
  7:10am
Meghan:

and ewwww on the clamato... It's just wrong.
  7:10am
Jefff:

We saw a beer that was mixed with clam-mato. I don't care how much you like drinking, I think you have to draw the line somewhere.
  7:10am
Chuck:

Ha, Elwyn! I've got TOO MANY drinking stories to relate here!
  7:12am
Meghan:

Oh that is right Jeff...... They were also selling that at the Record Fair this year too.
  7:12am
Dave B:

Make it a double
  7:12am
Elwyn:

@Chuck: Tell us your best.
@Meghan: PS I think my Rev Horton Heat compilation "Holy Roller" I bought off eBay came today but because it won't fit in my tiny postbox, they are holding it at the post office.
  7:13am
Elwyn:

@Bender Brady: I wouldn't expect anything less. Have this alcoholic fruit cup, buddy!
  7:13am
Chuck:

Morning, Dave! How's the hangover?
  7:14am
Meghan:

*giggles at Bender Brady*
  7:14am
procedura:

hey Dave,
where's my compo?
  7:15am
pierre:

One night in Paris, i was so drunk and pissed against de doorman in a club, tat i decided to come back home by myself, my bike's has been broken by two of those doorman, so i walked about all the city from north to south. About three hundred meters from my home i've decided to take a break. The next day i remember,i was waking up in a subway, just the OPPOSITE of where i live, and my bike was "i still don't know where" > the complete blackout.
  7:16am
Dave B:

I never had a hangover yet. But once i stop - WATCH OUT!
  7:16am
Meghan:

Ohhhhh, Pierre! that is bad! Poor bike....
  7:17am
Dave B:

Procedura - i only have it in 3 cd length chunks, not individual tracks. Still want?
  7:18am
pierre:

yeah, i take the chance of saying that the doormen of "Le Point Ephemere" in Paris are dumbs.
  7:19am
procedura:

@dave
well, in that case I can just listen to it in the archives. thanks anyway
  7:20am
Chuck:

Well, you wanted a drinking story, Elwyn. Here goes:
I my undergrad years 3 of us went to Happy Hour at a local joint. Marty, my neighbor, Doug, housemate who is a paraplegic, and myself. We all left hammered. As we moved out with Doug in his wheelchair he launched himself out of it using only his arms and tackled Marty and myself!
  7:22am
Elwyn:

@Pierre: Maybe it's a universal constant. In Australia, we've had some famous incidents of doorman/bouchers being douchebags: David Hookes, a retired Australian cricketer/coach, got punched by one and died after hitting his head on the ground.
A few weeks ago, a former rugby league player who was most famous for sticking his fingers in the anus of an opposing player on the field, was a bouncer and charged for affray after an incident where a patron was chased after being rejected and killed.
  7:24am
Chuck:

Marty is over 6' tall! So, there the 3 of use drunk punks we on the sidewalk wrestling around. Finally we got Doug back in his wheelchair. Still funny after all these years!
  7:25am
Meghan:

Ok.....never thought the phrase "famous for sticking his fingers in the anus" was a statement I ever thought that would show up on here......
  7:26am
pierre:

@ Elwyn: Your stories are serious. I'm sorry to hear those. That is the problem when you give power to potentially violent people. I mean most of the time it seems like they don't give a sh*t.
  7:26am
swampsucker don:

one time my wife went out of state to her mother's for the weekend. i was came home hammered and put some water on the stove to boil, so that i could have spaghetti for dinner. i awoke from my haze on the floor facing away from the toilet with my pants down to my ankles and the pot still heating on the stove with no water in it.
  7:28am
Meghan:

wow, that is a bad black out....
  7:35am
kath:

good morning class!
  7:36am
Dave B.:

Years back I went to a bachelor party at my best friends house. Now at the time we lived in suburbia and lived two blocks from each other.

Our streets ran parallel to each other, and there was one other street in between. There was another street that ran perpendicular, connecting the three and dead ending at each of ours.

The walk should have been simple. Leave his house, walk down the connecting street to the end, turn and go home.

I turned at the block in the middle, walked to where my house was and attempted to open the door. Needless to say, the key didn't work, and the owner of that house wasnt too pleased.
  7:36am
Chuck:

Morning, Kath! Got any good drinking stories?
  7:37am
Meghan:

Morning Kath!
  7:38am
Elwyn:

Morning Kath! Don't mix driving your new car with boozing! :-)
  7:41am
Chuck:

I'm sure we've all got a "Where the F@#K am I?" drinking tale, Dave!
  7:42am
Andy in Berlin:

Hey everybody! I'm at work so can't listen but I'm lurking on the comments board. I know somebody who went out to a club in Jersey and woke up the next morning in the dumpster out back.
  7:43am
Dave B.:

that friend still doesnt let me live that story down....
  7:43am
eric:

Morning all! Been listening, but late to the comments. Some of the stories are great!
  7:45am
Meghan:

I am just really proud that I got drunk in Moscow off of vodka. Jeff and I went out and ordered some vodka, but was not sure how much we were getting since we don't measure our alcohol in metric. So we ended up getting a round scientific looking flask half full with vodka. Needless to say, I got loaded. Then we had to get on the subway and figure out how to get back to the hotel. We got out at a different exit and I was all turned around. Luckily Jeff guided me back to the hotel. Though, no hangover the next day!
  7:46am
Dave B.:

I just wish I could remember the stories of the times I get REALLY hammered.

I guess I'm a functional drunk.
  7:46am
Chuck:

Are you sure it wasn't you trying to get into Meghan's place a couple of weeks ago, Dave? It's reason for today's theme! LOL!!!
  7:47am
ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Meghan, have you ever tried a Korean liquor called Soju?
  7:47am
Meghan:

Morning Eric and Andy! And wow, ending up in a dumpster... that is really bad!
  7:47am
kath:

I blackout, and function. bad combo!
  7:47am
easy:

Good stories going on... i've got a question, does (good) Vodka reeeeaaally not cause hangovers? thoughts?
  7:49am
Dave B.:

shhhh, Chuck. Now she'll never ask me back to the show!
  7:49am
Meghan:

I would say yes..... though I agree with that on all liquor. If it's really good, they aren't putting sugar and extra crap in it. I think it's the sugar that messes you up.

No, I have never had Soju. Or I don't recall!
  7:51am
Dave B.:

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me....
  7:51am
Chuck:

At least you didn't have a cripple knocking you to the ground to stop you, DB! HA!
  7:52am

fred eaglesmith - alcohol and pills.

Elwyn:

Another story about alcohol:

Last week, at around 4 am, arsonists set fire to a car underneath my apartment complex and everyone evacuated and had to wait for the fire to be put out and for the fire fighters to give the all-clear to return to our homes.

I had some good conversations with my neighbours (but sadly not the hot young ladies who looked really hot in their wet hair and sleepwear). One of my neighbours and I joked that we should head off to the pub down the road that is "open 'til late" but we had forgotten our wallets in the mad rush to escape the fire.
  7:58am
eric:

I agree with the sugar. Those sweet drinks get me every time.
  7:58am
Dave B.:

Some of my favorite drinking quotes are from the early seasons of M*A*S*H.

Hawkeye and Trapper had some great ones!

"Life Liberty and the pursuite of happy hour."
  7:58am
glenn:

what is classic rock radio but oldies radio, really?

BEEEEEER!!!!

Frank Booth!

Chuck:

I'm with you Jeff P!

Elwyn:

And that is one of the reasons why Sega is no longer in the hardware market of gaming. Well, even then, the last Sega game I bought, Aliens Vs Predator, was one of the most disappointing games I ever bought even though I love aliens and predators.
  8:00am
Chuck:

Beer is the nectar of the Gods!
  8:02am
glenn:

two pints of lager and a packet of crisps, please.
  8:02am
PKNY:

What would an alcohol set be without Murphy's Law? CRAPPY! Thanks for playing!
  8:02am
Chuck:

Well, I guess you've got to come up with something since guys can't play "Break up the cigarettes at the bottom of the urinal" anymore....
  8:02am
Meghan:

awwww, that sucks Elwyn! That would have been a perfect time to go drink!
  8:02am
Brian from Boston:

The Thorogood song is actually a medley of two John Lee Hooker tunes, "Rent House Blues" (the first part about the landlady) and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" which was Hooker's very thinly veiled rewrite of the Milburn tune.
  8:03am
Dave B.:

My kinda set! Murphy's Law was one of the best bands to ever share the stage with. Jimmy Gestopo is a great guy...
  8:03am
eric:

A couple of Christmases (sp???) ago, a few of the neighbor fellows and I decided at our holiday party that we would have a martini contest. So we made martinis and the others graded us on a scale of 0 - 100. There was no prize other than pride. Needless to say we tried multiple times to outdo each other with higher scores.
Back at home I almost made it to the toilet before relieving my stomach of its contents. My wife was not happy and I think she might have thrown me a pillow and blanket to sleep in the bathroom. I was not at all thrilled about the prospect of waking up needing to clean up that mess.
At some point I made it back to bed and I woke up in the morning absolutely dreading going into the bathroom to clean that mess up. Because I felt REALLY bad and I knew the smell was going to make me sick. I headed into the bathroom only to find out that my dog had cleaned up 98% of the mess I had made from the previous night!!

So gross, but so awesome!
  8:05am
Chuck:

Just goes to show a dog will eat just about anything...
  8:06am
Dave B.:

ha! I wonder if the dog got a buzz...
  8:06am
Chuck:

Dogs love beer too!
  8:07am
Elwyn:

@eric. Great story!

Dogs do vomit up food and eat it again when it is safe to do so. Must be part of their evolution.

I spilt some Baileys once and my best friend's dog licked it up. I loved that dog. RIP Wombie.
  8:08am
Meghan:

Oh dogs..... they are the best. Bosco was my caregiver when I was hungover the other day!
  8:08am
Chuck:

Had a friend who's dog would intentionally knock your beer over if it was on the floor so she could lap it up!
  8:08am
Parq:

Well, I am drinking coffee. Gingerly. I'm afraid my morning stomach can't even take reading the drinking stories you all have posted.
  8:09am
Dave B.:

Eric - I think the say goes "Martini's are like boobs. One is not enough and three are too many"
  8:09am
Meghan:

I think my comments board wins so far for the best in a long while!
  8:10am
Chuck:

You should do this theme again sometime, Meg! Comments are the most fun!
  8:11am
Meghan:

Oh I got enough songs for it a couple times over!
  8:11am
dorothy parker:

martinis, martinis, martinis, the drink that i love the most.
two; i'm under the table, three; i'm under the host.
  8:12am
Chuck:

I think all of us have plenty more drinking stories too!
  8:12am
Dave B.:

@dorothy - HA! Never heard that one...
  8:13am
Meghan:

Ha! Nice one Dorothy! Have never heard that one before....
  8:14am
eric:

Old Style!
  8:14am

So it really is "1 Scotch, ! Bourbon..."? From that other version it always sounded like, "I want scotch, I want bourbon, I want beer."

Dave B.:

Now, when it comes to martinis, I'm a purest - GIN.

I recall going to a bar with my brother, who also enjoys gin, and we ordered a few martinis.

The bartender asked us "what kind of martini"
We looked at each other, then back at the bartender and ordered a few beers.

"I like beer. It makes me a jolly good fellow."...
  8:17am
eric:

@Dave B That's great! Adding "tini" to the end does not make it a martini. Althouh I do like a vodka martini as well. But gin or vodka, that's it!

Favorite drinking quotation:

Frank Sinatra

“I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.”
  8:18am
Parq:

Ah, a Thurl classic. And yes, a "martini" these days appears to be any alcohol served in a martini glass. Not a gin man, myself, so I just shrug.
  8:19am
Meghan:

I don't know Prince of Wales as a game. I was always stuck playing asshole.....

glenn:

there's a wayne and shuster sketch - rinse this blood from my toga. anyway, they're in a bar, the customer (johnny wayne) asks the bartender (frank shuster) for a martinus. frank says "don't you mean a martini"? johnny says "if i wanted two, i'd ask for two". very funny stuff, especially if you like latin.
  8:23am
jeff p:

@Dave B: well next year at the people who died 2011 show i'll bring martinis instead of a fruit cup.
  8:23am
Dave B.:

Miss Meg,"I was always stuck playing asshole" is another phrase I would ordinarily not have expected to see 'round these parts.

Damn, I missed "I Ain't Drunk"! Stupid work stuff...but thank goodness for replays.
I was at the SJDP show on Saturday, Charles Bradley killed it. His new record is great, a few sites were streaming it online before it came out. Hopefully the mailman will be delivering my vinyl copy to me today.
I took some video of him w/ my phone that came out pretty good:

Still a bit amazing to me that Sharon is 3 years older than me. I couldn't generate that much energy. Well, not unless I was drunk. Ha!
