  9:08am Liz B.:

Word up, Hamburger! The Sanso-Xtro album is SO great!
  9:08am Dead Corporate Eyes:

Morning! glad to be back at work. Weekend was rough.
  9:09am T-Zero:

Gotta love the Aussie's. Mass murders, not so much ;)
  9:16am Dead Corporate Eyes:

synths are the best way to start your day. the hell with corn flakes.
  9:18am bw:

morning LB - this Eros track is awesome
  9:23am jb:

nice way to ease into the week!
  9:26am Jennique:

  9:34am T-Zero:

Ok, ok. I really don't dislike John Bender, just couldn't resist the associations to the name.
  9:46am bw:

oh man!!! this slow hand motem
  9:47am RobertoL:

Hey, hello everybody! Listening from Argentina! You ease my work day with those tracks, thanks!
  9:47am Big Hungry Joe:

Blue Sabbath Black Fiji=The Nice Dude and Girl in the World
  9:48am Big Hungry Joe:

*Nicest that is
  9:50am Dead Corporate Eyes:

sure is nasty sounding though
  9:53am lacerda:

Hey, hello L.B.! Listening from Brazil! You ease my work day with those tracks, thanks!
  9:55am Richard from Venezuela:

Good morning Liz and all the listeners.
  9:56am Van:

hello Liz and listeners. Dallas, TX checking in
  9:57am Paul:

Listening at work on a hot afternoon with no-one else in the office - my first time with this show. Interesting so far!

Paul, Canterbury, UK
  10:01am Liz B.:

Thanks for checking in, everybody, and glad to have you here. I was eaten alive by mosquitoes over the weekend, so I'm an itchy mess!
  10:02am Cecile:

Gotta run, Liz, but I have to say how blown away I am by the swag I got this weekend. Especially the messenger bag and the flash drive! the USB drive is like having FMU around w/o having to go online!
  10:05am Cecile:

People, there are 300 tracks on this thing, some of them an hour long!
  10:07am Cheri Pi:

I want Swag!!! Thank you for the beachball Liz! It's helping me hold out until my big-swag arrives.
  10:09am Cecile:

should be soon, Cheri. Mine came Saturday.
  10:10am Cecile:

Aw, hate to miss the Fungus Brains (the great lost Aussie groups of the 80s after Tactics), but gotta go.
  10:12am Richard from Venezuela:

A good idea for the next marathon is pledge via text message. I have dollar problems in my country but, i can play some international pc games using http://www.zong.com/ . I want a swag for the next marathon :(
  10:18am Liz B.:

Hey Richard, we looked into the text message donation thing, and unfortunately they'll only accept pledges of up to $10 and the phone companies keep 30-50% of the money. Evil.
  10:20am Richard from Venezuela:

Really evil. :(
  10:21am Mike East:

Good morning, all. Liz B - I can empathize with the itchiness. I got bit more than I have all summer at our local lake yesterday.
  10:23am Liz B.:

The phone companies got a lot of flack for keeping a huge chunk of the donations for earthquake relief in Haiti, so they eventually were pressured into giving it all to the cause, but that is certainly not the norm, unfortunately.
  10:30am still b/p:

The tally from a not-exactly-leisure trip yesterday: a few good blueberries, a few minor black fly bites, one black bear running across the busy road. One of the best bear sightings I've ever had.
  10:32am Dead Corporate Eyes:

you live up in the mountains, s b/p?
  10:33am Richard from Venezuela:

Thanks for the information Liz.
  10:35am still b/p:

It was outside North Conway, NH, about 90 min. from where I live in Maine.
  10:37am Dead Corporate Eyes:

I haven't seen a bear in about 20 years. But of course the last 20 years I've rarely left Ohio. Last one I saw was walking through a campground, causing quite a stir.
  10:40am Vicki - DO or DIY:

Acapocalypse :)
  10:41am Liz B.:

Ha ha, sorry Vicki, thought maybe it was a typo!
  10:46am Van:

I only discovered WFMU recently so missed out on whatever it was that people are getting swag for. I did however order my own t-shirt :) As for mosquitoes, supposedly if you put a dryer sheet (like Bounce) in your pocket they will leave you alone. Don't know if that is true or not.
  10:47am Liz B.:

Hi Van, welcome to our demented little radio family! Thanks for the mosquito tip -- I'm gonna try the dryer sheet!
  10:48am Dead Corporate Eyes:

put one in your bitchin' baja (aka drug rug). This track is building to something great, I feel.
  10:52am Dead Corporate Eyes:

great DJ move Liz!!
  10:53am Paul:

Current track sounds like more 'Krautrock' (terrible term, but you know what I mean)
  10:55am hubba:

Good morning everyone! Coming into work earlier... drinking raw eggs out of my hat that holds two canned beverages... "slurp the yoke" <consider it coined!>
  10:56am Dead Corporate Eyes:

yuck, hubba, just yuck
  10:57am hubba:

  10:57am T-Zero:

@DCE: What part of Ohio? I'm in Ohio as well.
  10:58am Dead Corporate Eyes:

the big CLE, T-Zero
  11:01am T-Zero:

@DCE: Ah! Col here.
  11:04am Mike East:

Is it me or is anyone else having trouble figuring out where these tracks begin/end? I don't mean that in a bad way, at all...Really excellent set, Liz
  11:05am Mike East:

oh, there it is
  11:06am T-Zero:

@DCE: You ever listen to WRUW? I have problems connecting to WCSB or I'd listen to them sometimes too.
  11:07am Dead Corporate Eyes:

oh yeah, all the time; between those three stations I'm putting in 50 hours a week. Insane and obsessed.
  11:08am Dead Corporate Eyes:

@ Mike East--the mark of a killer DJ set! no beginning, no end, seamless.
  11:08am hamburger:

sour buddy. sour buddy buddy
  11:10am T-Zero:

@DCE: Know what you mean. But I don't listen to them often. I'm more obsessed with WFMU (most of the time, a couple New Zealand stations, and a few other in the US. I like the music at WRUW but the djs annoy me.
  11:10am hubba:

I got one of those out of a grocery store candy dispenser!
  11:12am hubba:

@T-Zero, have you checked out KDVS?
  11:14am Dead Corporate Eyes:

hey, is there anything in COL worth listening to? Whenever I drive through I try to find something at the low end of the dial but fail.
  11:14am T-Zero:

@hubba: Nope. KEXP, KUSF in exile and KPFA is on my list to check out so I'll add KDVS.
  11:18am T-Zero:

If I listen in Columbus it's usually only to WCBE: Ante Meridiem with Mike Taylor, Roots 'n Offshoots or Wolrd Café with Maggie Brennan. Once in a while All Mixed Up late at night.
  11:18am bw:

  11:23am T-Zero:

@DCE: WCBE is mostly NPR syndicated programs but the ones I mentioned are produced locally,
  11:28am T-Zero:

Errr not World Cafe, that's David Dye in PA. I meant The GLobal Village.
  11:29am hubba:

Fungi Girls were to play last night, here, but the show got cancelled... miffed as to why, but this track is making me sad that I was not able to experience it live.
  11:30am Liz B.:

Bummer, Hubba, sorry to unintentionally rub it in.
  11:31am hubba:

hey, no complaints here... keep the hits coming!
  11:31am rocky:

i am trying to find that vacuum, shade song, but i can't anywhere, please help!
  11:32am Liz B.:

Check out siltbreeze.com, Rocky.
  11:33am rocky:

thank you liz! it's an awesome track
  11:33am T-Zero:

@DCE: Honestly, though, I hardly ever listen to Col stations any longer. But if all you have is vehicle radio in the area, then that'd be better than nothing.
  11:34am Dead Corporate Eyes:

yeah, I really don't believe in satellite radio. it's like the tooth fairy to me.
  11:36am hubba:

Better hurry... that Vacuum 7" is endangered...discogs already has it at an inflated price.
  11:38am rocky:

am i blind? i can't find it...
  11:40am if you want to buy:

  11:40am T-Zero:

@DCE: Seems most of the stations in Col are now owned by Clear Channel. Dayton Univ WUDR 99.5 or Otterbein WOBN 97.5 might work for you.
  11:42am rocky:

  11:42am T-Zero:

Nothing can beat WFMU though.
  11:44am if you want to buy:

when you're right you're right, t-zero
  11:44am hubba:

Picked up that Googoosh disc on Finder's Keepers yesterday, but had to forfeit it... last minute birthday gift... surprised the store had it... it was either that or Ebo Taylor... I used a gift certificate I got for my birthday... is that like re-gifting?
  11:48am Ike:

Hey all! Hot show, Liz.
  11:50am Liz B.:

Thanks Ike! I'm catching up on the convo about other good radio stations... KDVS was my old stomping ground, so I have to give a shout out!
  11:53am T-Zero:

Boulder's KVCU isn't bad either except it's an AM station (mono on the web) which sucks. Chicago's WNUR is pretty good too.
  11:54am T-Zero:

It all depends on when you listen in and what music you like I guess.
  11:56am hubba:

Monday huddle-up... See everyone in a bit... Thanks for das jams Liz!
  12:01pm Van:

Thanks for a nice show Liz!
  7:20pm Lucas:

Hola Liz and all listeners. I'm sad I will lose the live shows at least until 15 september :( (Now iIm working on mondays) but i'll keep following the archives. Enjoying today's delayed show!!!
