Listener comments!

  6:01am fred von helsing:

Siouxsie <3
  6:02am Matt from Springfield:

Good morning Meghan!
Siouxsie! GREAT transition from Julie! Nearly flawless in fact!
  6:02am hamburger:

looking forward to what's ahead :o|
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04am Meghan:

NEXT week is the 4AD fest...... just to remind you all.
  6:05am fred von helsing:

4AD > St V pls pls pls
  6:06am Matt from Springfield:

Though this set is a great bridge in any event!

You've got a fine head on your shoulders, Meghan! (Though where else would it be?...)
  6:07am Andy in Berlin:

I wasn't listening for a few minutes - what do you mean 4AD fest?
  6:10am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

*sigh* I used to have the 10-inch of this. Another great record that went missing sometime during various moves over the years.
  6:13am hamburger:

I like these songs
  6:14am Sometimes Jasmine:

This is really great
  6:16am Davice:

A head above the rest . . . that's what this show is!
  6:16am fred von helsing:

A bi friend of mine says Tegan & Sara is all the rage for lesbians. True?
  6:16am Matt from Springfield:

Go Slaphappy! You're on the FCC-free stream!
"The Man" won't kill your buzz here!
  6:18am fred von helsing:

For the purposes of this radio program, give me Head til I'm dead
  6:19am Matt from Springfield:

American IV: The Man Comes Around, great album.
  6:20am hamburger:

imagine your insurance policy was read by Johnny Cash - it'd still sound awesome
  6:21am fred von helsing:

oh noes tummy alarm went off BRB kthxbai
  6:23am Sometimes Jasmine:

Bloody hell, everyone is a winner... BEST THEME YET and we're only 23 minuts in...
  6:23am Davice:

  6:23am Matt from Springfield:

I can only assume FVH has run off to find food!
  6:24am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Maybe somebody is trying to steal his tummy.
  6:25am Davice:

I went to town,
My head fell off.
I found a Blah booth and called the Head Rentals.
I rented a head.
But then I stole it.
I had to get glasses for the head I stole.
So I decided to return my rented head!
After I returned my rented head
I bought a head for a gajillion-zillion Dollars!
When I told my mum she said
I always said you'd lose your head if it wasn't screwed on!
So then I said
Mum you told that to my brother!
You are never going to know whether I'm Arman or Toby!
That's when she said
Oh whoever you are!
I went to the park and lost my legs!
But that is another story!
  6:26am Matt from Springfield:

This "Suedehead" is great!
  6:27am Matt from Springfield:

Quirky poetry, Davice!
  6:32am hamburger:

this theme is going swimmingly with my tea
  6:33am Matt from Springfield:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34am Meghan:

I am guessing that the music is being good to all your heads right now!
  6:40am Matt from Springfield:

Being so good to our heads, we can't get it out of them!
  6:42am hamburger:

my heart says yes but my head says no, actually yes, actually no, actually yes
  6:45am jefff:

You had me at ELO... Then you pull out argent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47am Meghan:

Wonder what song will be stuck in your heads for the rest of the day?
  6:56am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Hide the razorblades before next week's show. :P
  6:57am Davice:

ELO is bouncing around my head right now.
  6:57am Dave B:

My head was fused to my pillow. Excellent sleeping weather!
  6:58am Davice:

Hey, where are the pictures that are usually intersperced in the playlist?
  6:59am Dave B:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01am Meghan:

That is exactly what I think everytime I hear this!

Davice.... since it's reporting time and I didn't do my homework of looking up the labels.... I am doing it now. hehe
  7:03am Dave B:

And a heady good morning to all, and welcome back Meghan.
  7:03am Davice:

Ok, someone needs to keep you straight . . . tee hee
  7:04am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

  7:08am Dave B:

The image included reminds me of Naked City's "Grand Guignol" cover art:
  7:27am Thelonliestmonk:

Hoping to see some They Might Be Giants (Put Your Head in the Puppet Hand) on this playlist before the night is over (yeah it's nighttime in China).
  7:34am Dave B:

When in Hudson, visit Olana

  7:35am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

GY!BE is playing in Dallas on October 11.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36am Meghan:

hello China! woohoo! Sadly, I last minute got rid of TMBG..... Though, the song I was going to use Stand on Your Own Head
  7:37am Magda:

Good morning everyone.
  7:37am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Dean & Britta have a nice cover of this Ann-Margret song. They played it when I saw them a few years ago.
  7:37am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Hi Magda!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38am Meghan:

good morning Magda!!!
  7:39am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

And speak of the devil... :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39am Meghan:

well, I did say they were going to be twofers!
  7:40am Magda:

Hey Meghan and BadGuyZero.
  7:42am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Yes you did. I thought it was going to be pairs of songs by the same artist (and maybe you have some of those coming up). :)
  7:42am will:

Oh mother...I can feel...the soil falling over my head....
  7:44am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

When I saw Dean & Britta they opened for Keren Ann who has a "head" song too (I think I suggested it on the Facebook page).

Will we be hearing Fleetwood Mac & Rezillos doing the same song? Anticipation is making me wait.
  7:46am hamburger:

I see what you did there
  7:49am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

  7:51am Dave B:

wiggity wiggity
  7:51am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

I'd forgotten all about Devo covering this.
  7:52am Magda:

Love this version of Head Like a Hole. Devo does some great covers. Satisfaction is a great one.
  7:56am jeff p:

good morning all!
  7:56am Magda:

Hi Jeff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58am Meghan:

morning Jeff!
  7:58am Dave B:

  7:59am Magda:

All right I'm off to work. I'll see you peeps around.
  7:59am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Greetings jeff and Dave!
  8:00am Sometimes Jasmine:

omg omg omg best set ever. might have to blow off my afternoon meeting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01am Meghan:

ha! Music always wins over meetings. Now if meetings had good music in it.... that would be another story!
  8:02am jeff p:

The Chain. It's a happy morning.
  8:02am kath:

yo, yo, dudes!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03am Meghan:

and Kath is back! It must be back to school time again for her! welcome back!
  8:04am jeff p:

I got to see these guys two weeks ago
  8:04am kath:

yep, it's back to school time and I am forced to arise at 7am till May.
  8:04am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Trompe le Monde is an album I usually listen to from beginning to end. It's going to be weird not hearing "U-Mass" after this.
  8:08am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

"King Creole" was my favorite record when I was a youngster in the 70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11am Meghan:

Best rockabilly bass line in this song
  8:12am Dave B:

  8:14am Dave B:

@Jeff P - a new one to try:

  8:15am Dave B:

o-hai-o kath!
  8:16am Cheri Pi:

Meghan! ooo I was hoping I wouldn't miss this song..
  8:16am Jim Devoid:

'Good Head' by Turbonegro?
  8:16am Davice:

  8:17am kath:

o-hai-o to you too D.
  8:17am Cheri Pi:

Hey Kath!!
  8:18am Cheri Pi:

oh, I love this next set (in advance)
  8:19am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

All MotorHEAD??? :D
  8:19am kath:

Hello neighbor Cheri!
  8:19am Cheri Pi:

Fleetwood Mac cover?
  8:19am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Ooh...Rezillos covering Fleetwood Mac!!!
  8:20am Cheri Pi:

Kath-I can't wait for Jungle Jims to open!!!
  8:21am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Quicksand was on Jimmy Fallon last night.
  8:23am Cheri Pi:

I was pretty sure this was going to be Fugazi for the first 30 seconds
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23am Meghan:

They are playing 2 sold out shows here, that is why. Crazy to think they were on Fallon! Crazy to think they sold out 2 shows. Didn't know they got so popular! Are the kids catching up to the old folks?
  8:23am kath:

Cheri, I was really looking forward to it too. I went to the Fairfield one, once. What an amazing place! Did you read my 'hiring event' story?
  8:24am Cheri Pi:

yes i did-they Could have handled it a LOT better!!
  8:24am kath:

Cheri, We are going to see Roger Hodgson from Supertramp this Friday at Blue Ash. It's Free, maybe you'll be there???
  8:25am PKNY:

  8:26am jeff p:

Yes... HELMET!
  8:26am Cheri Pi:

can't go :( I have a photo-shoot the next morning at 8am so I have to get tons of beauty sleep! I heard Duran Duran & Smoky Robinson are playing free shows at Kettering this week too, we're spoiled for choice in Ohio.
  8:27am Dave B:

HELMET on the HEAD show.

  8:27am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

I think I may have inadvertently talked a talent buyer friend of mine out of bringing Quicksand to Dallas. He asked me about them a few months ago. I told him that while I like them I don't think they would draw here. They probably wouldn't. Dallas is a fickle city. :rollseyes:
  8:28am Cheri Pi:

Hey, I saw Helmet play this year! In Kentucky...
  8:28am kath:

I had hoped to see CSN & Dylan, but no $$$. I'll look into Duran Duran. My husband is an 80's boy, perhaps he'll go. Where's Kettering?
  8:29am Jim Devoid:

double head!
  8:30am kath:

I kinda forget that I like Motorhead until I hear them.
  8:30am Dave B:


\m/ (>_<) \m/
  8:32am Cheri Pi:

Kath, it's Dayton, OK my info is wrong this is not a free show!!! (45 minutes) http://tickets.mycityrocks.com/ResultsTicket.aspx?evtid=1870393&event=Duran+Duran&ppcsrc=BP120417
  8:32am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

I saw Motorhead and Slayer together a few weeks ago. That was a nice, loud show!
  8:33am Jim Devoid:

Oh yeah, All Hail Norway!
  8:34am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

  8:34am kath:

so, I really liked the Reverend Horton Heat song. I think I have one or two in my itunes, but if *anyone* wants to dropbox me some more to sample, and/or some Motorhead too, I would be happy girl! klent65@gmail.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35am Meghan:

Kath, if Reverend Horton Heat plays near you, go see him. Seriously!
  8:36am kath:

Cheri will keep me posted!
  8:36am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

@kath: The first two RevHo albums are good ("Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em" and "Full Custom Gospel Sounds"). "Liquor In The Front" has its moments.
  8:36am kath:

Hey Dave, I am going to see Peter Gabriel (first time)!
  8:38am Dave B:

nice Kath. I've got tickets for that in October. And a few other shows in between!
  8:40am kath:

September at Jones Beach. Yup, I'll be in NY for a few...
  8:40am jeff p:

Heh. I was waiting for this one.
  8:40am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

I lurv this song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41am Meghan:

You know I can't NOT play the Go Go's!
  8:41am Jim Devoid:

Nice Go-Go's!
  8:43am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

One time on Draw Something the word was "vacation" so I drew the Go-Go's album cover. That was probably my most elaborate Draw Something art ever.
  8:44am hamburger:

oh yeah
  8:44am Dave B:

@Bad Guy Zero

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46am Meghan:

wow.... the water skiiers with the flags.... really?! Sadly, I think I might have figured that out too. hahaha
  8:46am kath:

I was trying to let my dog listed to my headphones but she just wants to eat them.
  8:48am Cheri Pi:

Nice one!
  8:49am jeff p:

I feel a little bit dirty that I like this Kylie Minogue song
  8:50am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

@Dave: I knew what that was going to be before I even clicked. *hee!*
  8:50am NEW ORDER:

I don't approve of this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51am Meghan:

Jeff..... I totally understand. That is exactly why I played it. guilty pleasure!
  8:51am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

@Meghan: It wasn't super detailed but still much more elaborate than the average Draw Something art.
  8:51am jeff p:

  8:52am Dave B:

I like that Bob Ross....
  8:52am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

@Kath: There's a good animated gif of a cat wearing headphones that has made the rounds.
  8:53am Dave B:

not a cat, but funny all the same:

  8:54am Dave B:

Gotta scoot.

Give a hoot! Don't pollute!
  8:55am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Here's a link to Quicksand on Fallon last night for anyone who wants to see it: http://www.hulu.com/watch/393905#s-p1-sr-i1
  8:57am jeff p:

I like how you keep saying "(insert artist here) gives us head...."
  8:57am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

This show was so much fun my daddy's gonna take the t-bird away!
