Avatar 4:01am Bill Mac:

Really Jay? I'm pretty sure most of the movie involves Ken, our beloved leader. I might be in a Hoof n Mouth cameo, but I couldn't tell you for sure.
  4:02am Brian in UK:

Avatar 4:18am Bill Mac:

Did someone say yodeling?
  4:19am Looms:

Avatar 4:20am Bill Mac:

I know there are more than a few closet yodeling fans out there
  4:22am Looms:

I became an instant fan of yodeling when it saved the world from martians...
Avatar 4:24am Bill Mac:

I might come around when they integrate yodeling with rap
  4:24am Looms:

Do you have any German cover of Indian Love Call?
  4:24am Stanley:

With a bit of effort I'm sure a yodeling set could be put together, German, cowboy, Tarzan etc
  4:25am Brian in UK:

Looms, you just made me laugh out loud. Priceless.
  4:27am Brian in UK:

Bill, I do find that picture disturbing in several ways.
Avatar 4:30am Bill Mac:

I'd say at least they're clothed, but no, that doesn't make it any less disturbing
  4:31am Brian in UK:

It's tail wagging time, better walk the dog.

  5:10am hamburger:

Avatar 5:12am Bill Mac:

Let's see 'em try!
  5:12am hamburger:

oh and I see you reached your goal! Good job ZZZZzzzero hour peoples!
  5:12am KP:

I am so messed up out here I don't know I'm staying up too late or waking up too early. Just know Das es Wunderbar!
Avatar 5:13am Bill Mac:

@Hamburger - this idea started out as an all German music show, but that proved to be too unfocused.
  5:13am Brian in UK:

What's happening on the roads, Bill?
  5:14am KP:

One great thing (among the many here) is few to no guests. Less talk, more chaos!
Avatar 5:15am Bill Mac:

I'm not paying attention to the roads brother - check out the Caravelles - yummy! What are they singing about anybody?
  5:16am Looms:

They're singing about love, Bill, what else?
Avatar 5:17am Bill Mac:

and you help make that happen Mr Burger ... thank you!!!
Avatar 5:18am Bill Mac:

You're not into the guests KP? I can appreciate that for sure. Unless I get someone I really wanted to see hear i couldn't do it.
  5:18am KP:

When you drive in England, I guess with new car, you get constant traffic warnings that override the radio and even CD player.
Avatar 5:18am Bill Mac:

@Looms Man they better be!!!
  5:21am KP:

It's ok to a point.
Avatar 5:23am Bill Mac:

@KP - Really? That's someone I wouldn't even know to be concerned about. Is traffic that bad over there or is Englands Department of Transportation that accommodating?
  5:24am KP:

Congratulations again Bill, but let's not stop here. Doubling and even tripling goals are not unheard of.
  5:25am Jay/ London:

bill we can turn off the warnings if we want to
  5:26am KP:

Supposed to be emergencies but amounts to traffic reports. Really irritating. Traffic is bad. My wife drives over there, me here.
  5:26am KP:

Oh I guess I just couldn't figure it out.
Avatar 5:28am Bill Mac:

Hey, any help I can get to navigate the roads is appreciated
  5:29am Jay/ London:

KP have you still got Manuel the radiio/cd player came with it should be easy to turn them off
  5:31am hamburger:

http://bit.ly/Wym4kY :)
  5:32am arne da torino:

Silently dying love.... that's what the Caravelles had to offer. Thank you very much.... Bill, I have to check out now. What a splendid start into my Saturday! Thanks for that excellent show. I will now go out there on my bike and try and survive the Italian traffic. Yes, that's right. Good bye to everyone. See you soon!
  5:33am Brian in UK:

Her gimmick was singing in bare feet
  5:34am Brian in UK:

Avatar 5:36am Bill Mac:

Charlie Brown wants to listen to This Mortal Coil’s ‘Song To The Siren’ once again… hah!
Avatar 5:37am Bill Mac:

Later Arne! Thanks for the translation on the Caravelles tune. I like them even more now!
  5:43am Brian in UK:

I think it is the white socks that is scaring me so much. Got to get some breakfast & strong coffee. Brilliant job on the pledging.
Avatar 5:44am Bill Mac:

Thanks to you guys... thanks for the lift!
  5:48am Looms:

  5:49am Jay/ London:

  5:55am hamburger:

haha I remember this song from school! way to make kids depressed!
Avatar 5:56am Bill Mac:

Sorry Jay, believe it or not, I made an effort to omit the Beatles. It would be nice to hear the Beatles AND the Stones to their songs in German.
  5:56am Jay/ London:

omg this takes me back to childhood, good one to end with. have a great weekend everyone .. see you next week for the CRAMPS SHOW :)
  5:56am hamburger:
