Listener comments!

  Tue. 10/11/11 12:01pm tonyc:

Hullo dere!
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:01pm Alf from Upstate:

Welcome back Tony!
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:03pm Ricardo Montalban:

Ola, Senor Tony!
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:04pm Ricardo Montalban:

Oh, I'm a sucker for any version of Telstar. Gracias!
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:04pm tonyc:

Hiya Alf & Ricardo! Get ready for three hours of covers....
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:05pm J J:

Aloha, from the island of Manhattan.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:07pm tonyc:

Hey JJ!
Won't be harping on it, but I need to do some shekel-raising today. Please pitch in if you can, everybody!
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:08pm Pittsburghers for Coulter:

You've got my vote, Tony.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:10pm tonyc:

Thank yee, Mr. Pittsburgh!
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:10pm J J:

Fuuuuuu, I love family fodder.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:13pm tonyc:

Thanks, o pledger -- whoever you are! (No one's feeding me names over here in my West Coast lair.)
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:13pm Brian in UK:

Hello Tony, just dumped pledge #8. Small but perfectly shaped. Sounds like Pinky & Perky.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:13pm Doug S.:

If you donate using the special pledge widget atop Tony's playlist page, the contribution will help Tony reach his financial goal for this fund drive. (Of course, 100% of your gift goes to WFMU.) Every pledge for Tony is, indirectly, a pledge in support of WFMU's continued support for GIVE THE DRUMMER RADIO, the stream that makes Tony's show possible. Or, at least, audible. Please make your generosity visible and make a pledge!
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:15pm tonyc:

Thanks so much, Brian!!
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:16pm Ricardo Montalban:

I still want that Devotees album, nearly 30 years after failing to buy it at Tower Records one day. Back then, I thought it was dumb. Now I think it's sublimely dumb.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:16pm tonyc:

Are we not clowns?
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:17pm Bozo:

  Tue. 10/11/11 12:18pm Ricardo Montalban:

Hybrid Kids. That's Morgan Fischer's wonderful mutated punk project, innit?
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:18pm Hunter S Thompson:

No we are Gonzo.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:19pm tonyc:

Ricardo M: Egg-zactly!
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:19pm Carmichael:

OK, made it here after a nice 3 day weekend. I love covers, and covers of covers.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:19pm ?:

RM Did Mr Fisher do the one minute per track album
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:20pm tonyc:

Yep, he did release the Miniatures album.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:21pm still b/p:

Godsprockets of soul.

All these are surely innerestin', but as much a parody party so far as a cover surge, hey?
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:22pm Brian in UK:

still b/p 'cover surge' Is that some sort of eiderdowm or antimacassar?
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:22pm tonyc:

So far, yeah -- but there will be different flavors of cover coming up.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:24pm tonyc:

Please peeps, pledge for parody!
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:24pm Brian in UK:

I'm getting pre-teen 'California '99' notes.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:28pm still b/p:

Brian -- Yes. If you can find the vintage stuff in someone's attic or a specialty shop, you'll pay a LOT. Cheap modern synthetic knock-offs are not as warm, as handsome or worth having.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:31pm Brian in UK:

still b/p the back cover of Jimmie Spheeris' first album has just the example I think you have in mind. Got to be the LP. CDs do not cut it.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:32pm mark:

Freberg is still the King ... nice!
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:32pm J J:

I think I like this better than the original.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:33pm tonyc:

Thanks for the pledges coming in! Keep 'em coming!
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:34pm Doug S.:

These aren't merely cover versions, they're insane perversions — a way higher deejay bar to clear. You are THE MAN for the job, Tony. Blessedly.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:35pm tonyc:

I thank you, Doug -- as does Hot Lips Houlihan.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:36pm Brian in UK:

No Crosby. Phew.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:37pm Carmichael:

Oh my God .... cool jazz CSNY. David Crosby's rolling over prematurely in his grave.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:37pm Alf from Upstate:

A natural blonde, if I recall
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:38pm still b/p:

The Freberg version of Banana Boat song cracks me all up.

And, oh, Sally, Sally..."His will be done!!"
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:41pm tonyc:

Uncle Boris says: pledge, pledge, pledge! For FMU and country....
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:41pm Brian in UK:

tonyc do these all come from your personal collection?
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:41pm Carmichael:

Answer carefully, Tony.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:42pm tonyc:

Brian: Sadly, yes, they do....
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:43pm Doug S.:

I think we're going to need a shower after this show, Tony. Hey, how about showering some generous contributions down on WFMU right about now??

  Tue. 10/11/11 12:44pm Brian in UK:

I get the feeling that Peter Sellers' Hard Days Night' is too 'ironic' for this show.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:46pm charlie:

Tony, this show ranks with your great "Hit Replay" marathon premium of a couple of years ago -- one of my fave premium CDs.
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:47pm still b/p:

Hey, hey, it's a Monkees cover,
Galen's just Monkeein' around...
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:47pm Mongo:

need beer
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:47pm tonyc:

Hey Charlie! (Thanks!)
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:49pm tonyc:

Pledge-o, pledge-o -- please-o, please-o!
  Tue. 10/11/11 12:59pm tonyc:

Great to see those pledge numbers going up! Thank you, whoever you are!!
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:02pm Carmichael:

Am I at the Celtic Festival?
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:05pm tonyc:

What's now playing is, of course, a Soft Machine cover....
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:06pm Doug S.:

• WFMU has set modest, attainable goals for this October fundraiser, but it is crucial that they are met.
• Remember that WFMU did NOT make the goal during our regular on-air fundraiser last March.
• The station — and all its vital projects, like this here alternate web stream — will be significantly challenged if we don't meet our goal this month. We will get there by having each individual show reach its own goal.
• Please make a few clicks and move Tony's pledge thermometer into FEVER TERRITORY.
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:07pm tonyc:

Yes, you give me FEVER... when you pledge....
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:08pm tonyc:

On now: a Doors cover....
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:14pm tonyc:

Should point out that I won't be on next week -- so I need to do well with the fundraising today. Please pledge for Give the Drummer Radio and the station!
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:15pm tonyc:

Thanks for the pledge!
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:16pm glenn:

music machine, yeah?
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:16pm tonyc:

Glenn: Yep, Music Machine
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:18pm tonyc:

Be a Stooge for FMU -- pledge, pledge, pledge!
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:18pm iker:


here i am, better late than never. just in time for making my little pledge. :-)
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:19pm tonyc:

Hey, Iker! Thanks for the pledge!
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:20pm tonyc:

Who knew you could rock out on "Eleanor Rigby"?
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:21pm Ricardo Montalban:

This Claw track has evidence of Ferry syndrome
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:22pm tonyc:

Nah -- they're tough biker dudes. They'd probably want to beat him up, despite their warbly vocals
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:28pm J J:

Do the television personalities know where syd barrett is buried?
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:29pm tonyc:

Good question, JJ.
Hey -- we're at the halfway point of today's show ... would love to see more pledging action, esp since I won't be on next week.
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:35pm J J:

I forgot who it was but someone did an entire three hour show of nothing but covers of "Satisfaction."
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:36pm tonyc:

Huh -- missed that. Joe Belock did a premium that was nothing but covers of "Hey Joe."
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:38pm pledge:

sister sledge
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:38pm Ricardo Montalban:

What the hell?
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:38pm don:

great show tony. this yesterday cover just forcefully made me abandon my lurker status
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:39pm tonyc:

Hey there, Lurker Don!
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:42pm Ike:

Yeah, great show! Wow!
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:43pm Carmichael:

Kevin seemed to have found himself a Moog.
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:43pm tonyc:

Thanks, Ike!! (And greetings....)
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:43pm iker:

Tony, since you won't be on next week, can we expect the "80s singles" splecial the week after that? i'm definitely looking forward to that show!
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:44pm tonyc:

Yes, Iker -- the single special will be the week after (10/25).
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:45pm tonyc:

Meanwhile, everybody, please pitch in with a pledge if you can -- it'd be mucho, mucho appreciated!
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:45pm Carmichael:

Oh, what a lucky man ... he is. is. is.
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:46pm Brian in UK:

J J It was Joe McGasko did the Satisfaction show.
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:49pm Brian in UK:

Satisfaction guaranteed
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:50pm tonyc:

Coming up: a set of less ambivalent covers.
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:50pm Brian in UK:

tonyc you sure are making us Gladys.
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:51pm tahomajohn:

hahaha.. this is hilarious!
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:52pm Garbage Bag:

I'm Glad.
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:53pm Brian in UK:

Carmichael this sounds interesting. They even use the word freeform in the programme
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:57pm tonyc:

All is (too) quiet on the pledging front. Help me break free of the dreaded 66%!
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:58pm J J:

Brian, that most certainly is the show. I would have looked it up if I didn't feel threatened by my ancient computer and the browser that horribly sluggish.
  Tue. 10/11/11 1:59pm tahomajohn:

This Sagette piece reminds me of the awesome Up With People cover of Foghat's Slowride... sadly:(
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:01pm tonyc:

Come on people: turn that 66 upside down!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:02pm conrad:

ohmigawd, you have the Gazoo Band album?!? I thought I was the only person in the world with that one! Where'd you get it?
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:04pm tonyc:

Conrad: Got the Gozoo many ages ago, in a second-hand book store.
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:10pm Carmichael:

Brian@1:53: Food trucks are a booming scene out here. Cheap and filling, and the food is much better than the chipper van I grew up with.
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:12pm tahomajohn:

And The Dohters of the Revolooshun have arisen again, too!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:14pm tonyc:

Anyone know who originally recorded "Scarlet Ribbons"? I've got at least three covers of it, but don't know who did it first.
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:14pm Carmichael:

Gandalf? Wasn't the 60s a great time for band names? I remember Frumious Bandersnatch.
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:17pm tahomajohn:

Dunno. But the original could not have possibly had a fuller beat of gandalfian substance.. omg, is this the original Phil, Jack and Loretta piece of Leaving?
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:18pm tonyc:

Only 45 minutes left in today's show -- gotta get those numbers soaring with that old jet plane. Please pledge, dear listener-lookers!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:20pm tonyc:

tahomajohn: Haven't been introduced to messrs./missrs. Phil, Jack and Loretta.
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:23pm tahomajohn:

They were really big in Peoria back on the 21rst of August, 1971 .
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:26pm tahomajohn:

  Tue. 10/11/11 2:27pm Hugo:

Here is a question or two to ponder:

When is a tune a "cover" and not a "version"? Only when there is an undisputed original? How close does it have to be to the original to be a cover?
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:30pm tonyc:

Good questions, Hugo -- even if I don't have any answers at the moment.
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:31pm tonyc:

Only half an hour left ... I'd REALLY like to see a bit more pledgin'. Purty please?
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:32pm tahomajohn:

this is better than elvis!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:37pm BSI:

pledge-wedgie delivered. Wish it could be more, alas....
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:38pm tahomajohn:

PLural EDGE or Pointed LEDGE... it still is PLain to see ED in the GE tubes, if you get my drift, people.
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:38pm tonyc:

Thanks so much, BSI!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:38pm tonyc:

Yes, the one-eyed midget is shouting: PLEDGE!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:39pm BSI:

Didn't see the link on the FMU home page at noon & panicked... didn't think we had you this week.... but all is well.
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:41pm Hugo:

To give an example:

When Jimi Hendrix played the "Star Spangled Banner" at Woodstock, did he cover it or did he make a version of it?
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:42pm tonyc:

Please let me break into the exclusive rank of the 70th percentile. I'm only a percentage point away....
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:42pm tonyc:

Hugo: Mebbe both?
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:45pm tahomajohn:

Cough up the dough, you capitalist widgets caked in filthy lucre, before it's too late, c'mon!!!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:45pm tonyc:

Please, please -- just a few more last-minute pledges so I can make it on B'way.
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:47pm BSI:

what he said!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:49pm tonyc:

Again, I won't be on next week. I will be back on Oct. 25th, though, with an all-'80s singles show. (As part of the station-wide Singles Going Steady week.)
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:51pm tahomajohn:

Pledge: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand! For as it is written, he who pledgeth not doth not entereth, either. Pledgeth and thirsteth no more!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:51pm J J:

I threw in all my cash last week. Maybe I'll join one of those experimental drug research studies for extra money.
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:54pm tahomajohn:

Great show, Tony, Haunting, funny, bizarre and beautiful!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:55pm tonyc:

Thanks for last week, JJ! By the way, wanted to mention that I think I've managed to make the 4-week mp3 archives sound better than they have been sounding.
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:55pm Frank Booth:

Suave, man. You're so fuckin' suave!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:55pm BSI:

PEOPLE OF THE WORLD: Bring this show up to 70% or the sea-monkey family gets it.
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:55pm tonyc:

Thanks, tahomajohn!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:58pm tonyc:

And thanks everybody for listening! See you in two weeks. In the meantime ... please support FMU and Give the Drummer Radio!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:59pm tonyc:

Three cheers for 70%!! Hurray! Keep those pledges coming.... (And thanks to the mystery pledger!)
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:59pm tahomajohn:

We spared the sea monkey family!!!
  Tue. 10/11/11 2:59pm BSI:

[sea-monkeys suddenly quite relieved]
  Tue. 10/11/11 3:00pm tonyc:

Thanks again, everyone! See you back here on Oct. 25th.
  Tue. 10/11/11 6:12pm tonyc:
