But I get to go have lunch with Michael Yonkers, so that's always a treat.
  12:22pm Cecile:

  12:23pm Cecile:

well, gotta run. See you in a while.
  12:28pm Frank:

  12:31pm Frank:

Wait , nevrrmind - filling in. I got it :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm bobw:

i don't know surly of minn. what's that all about?
  12:37pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Diane is at sea this week - http://www.70000tons.com/ She might have some posts on Facebook or other place.
  12:37pm dinatekno:

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass?!?! REALLY?!?!?! You made my freaking week!! Followed by Bowie - covering the Who?!?!? I'm loving this!
  12:39pm SteveL:

Nice Bowie cover. Need to get a copy of Pinups.
  12:43pm Andrea on the M62:

I concur on the Bowie PinUps
  12:43pm kata:

@Ken, thank you for sharing that link, I had no idea. Seems kind of brilliant and terrifying at the same time! Either way, a metal cruise is a brilliant business idea.
  12:44pm Bad Ronald:

Love the Roxy Music!!!
  12:47pm dinatekno:

Damn! This is GREAT!!!! I love the mix of styles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm bobw:

man, major control board malfunction after the bowie song! i got totally lost and couldn't figure out how to get the next song on! it's been too long since i've done a show...
  12:48pm SteveL:

Yes. this IS what radio is all about!

Bob, it appears you're back on top of the log now. Keep rolling!
  12:49pm still b/p:

So cpl5938 was Ferry's license plate at the time. I didn't know that for the last thirty something years.
  12:50pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Diane went on the metal cruise last year, too. I think she posted in Beware of the Blog after she came back. Sounded like a great time. Imagine if Francesco Schettino were the captain.

I'm enjoying Bob's show today.
  12:50pm Warren B:

Where's the beer? BR's getting thirsty!
  12:52pm Francesco:

Gonna hit a rock, and roll!
  12:53pm Warren B:

Elephant walkin'! Very pop Bob.
  12:59pm Warren B:

Lotsa brass been spun over in JC NJ today Mr. Bob!
  1:08pm Warren B:

Brown head = stout; white head = porter. Peche Mortal Imperial Stout.
  1:11pm Warren B:

Que les ivrognes boivent pour se saouler!
  1:12pm northguineahills:

Didn't know Slumberland Recs was still around.
  1:15pm uncle dracula:

  1:16pm uncle dracula:

Play Theee Bishops!!!!
  1:16pm Ken:

Microphone problemos Bob?
  1:17pm Ken:

The guy who said "70s Prog Rock" is not on mic. Or his mic is broken.
  1:26pm Warren B:

Sweet potato beer, sounds neat!
  1:34pm edb:

Is the playlist still being updated? what was the last track?
  1:37pm dc pat:

this music is AWESOME!
  1:48pm Aharon:

You're not helping get this song out of my head!
  1:50pm Cecile:

aw, missed the Roxy.
I hope you're back on the roster this coming schedule, Bob.
  1:50pm Cecile:

I might have to watch Portlandia...once.
  1:51pm Cecile:

@bobw, it's a fantastic local beer. Look for namse like Furious, Cynic, and Bender. Delicious.
  2:01pm Cecile:

Ken, Diane's show about the metal cruise last year was one of the most fun shows she did in 2011.
  2:01pm kat330:

Sure like this driving Karkwa!
  2:11pm siggi:

  2:13pm Your Announcer:

  2:20pm Mike East:

Is this guy a W.I.N.C.??
  2:24pm T-Zero:

Nah... I don't think so... But this could be their anthem eh?
  2:25pm Ben:

Good Lord why am I just discovering this album now?!?!
  2:26pm Cecile:

it is a great album. i was so thrilled when it was reissued.
  2:27pm T-Zero:

The thing is, if it weren't Ken Nordine, it probably wouldn't work as well...
  2:29pm kat330:

Having a flashback.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm bobw:

sorry for playing the entire "colors" c.d., but there's something wrong with the board and it's being "looked at".
  2:30pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

why do I want an orange now?
  2:30pm siggi:

I think i am joining kat330´s flashback
  2:32pm northguineahills:

Someone spill beer on the mixing board?
  2:32pm T-Zero:

Hey, bob w... no need to apologize. It's a great album...
  2:34pm kat330:

Yes, great album, always fine flashbacks. :)
  2:35pm still b/p:

Cape Cod Russet Potato Chips were damn good, but I don't think they make 'em anymore. That's a flashback my mouth could use.
  2:35pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

why do I want a potato now?
  2:37pm northguineahills:

Yeah, I can't leave my desk b/c I'm digging the Nordine.
  2:37pm dc pat:

why do I want a beer now?
  2:38pm Cecile:

Why do I want fine amber jewelry now?
  2:39pm fly:

Why can't I move now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm bobw:

yes. i, in fact, spilled beer on the board. no joke. enjoy my last show ever on wfmu. :( (hopefully that's not the case!)
  2:41pm kat330:

Board fixed now? Solar flares to blame (trying hard to verify any communication interruptions from the sun dance).
  2:42pm still b/p:

free foam radio
  2:42pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

too funny. I used to be "that guy" who spilled beer at every party but have since become more controlled.
  2:43pm kat330:

@sbp: Heh!
  2:43pm T-Zero:

@DCE: Better be "that guy" who spills beer than "that guy" who always pukes everywhere... ;)
  2:45pm popo:

better to be that guy with a large joint
  2:49pm kat330:

Gotta run but glad I had a moment to enjoy your tasty inaugural sound bites, Bob, and get a laugh courtesy of the lovely listeners. Moi!
  2:49pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

hey I was BORN that way Popo. (sorry, couldn't refuse)
  2:51pm northguineahills:

Awesome to see you live at WFMU again, super fun set!
  2:51pm T-Zero:

Good one, DCE!
  2:52pm dc pat:

I can see some new beer-oriented rules in WFMU's future...
  2:52pm Edvard Munch:

oh no!
  2:52pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Fabio is not going to like the smell of stale beer, though
  2:53pm T-Zero:

Nah... could have happened to anyone. I'm sure others also drink coffee, tee, sodas, etc.
  2:53pm dc pat:

isn't there some kind of detergent specifically made for getting beer out of sound equipment? jeeze..
  2:54pm T-Zero:

Heh. That would be tea... If they're drinking tee I'd be worried...
  2:55pm Bad Ronald:

should prolly shut the board down to dry out...
  2:55pm dc pat:

I thought you were letting out a little laugh in the middle of your sentence..
  2:55pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

tee hee
  2:57pm dust mites:

Who wanz'a fight?
  2:59pm dc pat:

  3:01pm Dead Corporate Eyes:
