Thanks for the Beatles! For a few reasons, but thanks to you!

What was that Beatles song? It is not in the posted playlist.

After seeing Paul at the English Olympics my friends and I have decided that Ringo is the best of the living Beatles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Jeezy:

I must say I quite enjoyed the new Paul song on the grammys. Third time was a charm...
  9:46pm marmeladenkatze:

nobody cares that Wigan are FA cup champs.. except everyone who are not man city fans.. man who? I hear you ask
  9:47pm Gregor Samsa:

Hey Christo! Loved the gates in Central Park! Pseu, maybe you can convince him to wrap the WFMU building like a giant present with a bow on top?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Jeezy:

And as far as the relentless Beatles hype for the 50th: I'm LOVIN' it... Each anniversary brings out great new (old) stories I'd never heard and I just plain never tire of hearing those thrilling early tracks. A welcome respite from the usual soulless tripe that occupies modern media.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Facebook is for Billy Ocean fans,

  9:55pm marmeladenkatze:

I never said those things.. like Nixon, I am innocent of any wrong doing
  9:58pm P-90:

Good evening Revolution, Lovecraft, Pete from B. & gang.
@Rev + LcD888: Count me as huge longtime Echo fan too!
Whew, I like the setlist, shame to get here late. I'm relieved I didn't miss the Taylor Swift/Kelly Clarkson set, though
  10:00pm P-90:

LcD888: "we"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Kelly Clarkson is a waste of talent. There, I said it.
  10:05pm P-90:

@Pete from B.: Guess I was secretly hoping that the "Top 40 Update for Clueless Old Geezers" would be a regular feature now...
WHERE did they find that Bruno Mars guy anyway
Avatar 10:10pm Pseu Braun:

OK, you slags...If you don't like Kelly Clarkson, you're no listener to THIS SHOW. If you're constantly whining about how GREAT it "used to be", you should piss off and get a life. I can't entertain non-listeners and little bitches on this board. Straighten up or go the home, I haven't the patience.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Don't get me wrong -- I think the kid has talent, just lousy svengalis and handlers and whatnot. Hell of a set of pipes. Shame such garbage comes out of them.

Kelly, if you're reading this, get in touch. I know you're hurting.
  10:10pm B.F.:

Touch it, touch it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I also think I'm a waste of talent as a listener, for what it's worth. I really need to be put in my place for tuning in so amateurishly.
  10:12pm marmeladenkatze:

Any hamilton streetcar, pseu?
  10:13pm P-90:

@P from B: OK you acknowledge a "great set of pipes", is it the contemporary arrangements and production that turn you off and make it a "waste"?
Avatar 10:14pm acid casualty:

That remember song had some beatlesque guitar.
Avatar 10:14pm Pseu Braun:

HS won't fit in tonight, sorry
  10:16pm marmeladenkatze:

no worries! great show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Blah songs, uncompelling arrangements... packaged passion. But it's hard to be too critical, because she's doing what American Idols do, and without AI, she's still off in Little Town X.
  10:16pm P-90:

@P from B: Or are you just being willfully controversial, you mischievous scallywag? [scallawag?]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Was that the same Three O'Clock that play "Jet Fighter"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

No, P-90, I think she's genuinely possessed of talent.
  10:18pm P-90:

"97 million" sounds about right for the percentage of total US population which resides in trailers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Is this characterization of non-Grammy-watchers a stab at Dave Mandl? I was enjoying his show that night because I like WFMU and Dave Mandl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm Ike:

28.5 million, not 90.

This radio show is good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

My non-Grammy-watching was amid a positive pursuit. Why must it be negative? I also enjoy this WFMU show.

Superb Owl? Nah, I'll listen to the excellent DJ Daniel Blumin on WFMU instead.
  10:24pm a.:

The only part of the Super Bowl I'm really excited about is the Seinfeld reunion commercial.
  10:25pm P-90:

@Bruno Mars: last week we heard us some Sara Bareilles, Katy Perry, Rihanna (w/mikky echo), all just fine, then a particularly rancid snippet of one Bruno M.
3 out of 4 ain't bad, so no biggie
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I'm going to spend Sunday evening moping about amid the criticism of what I do or don't listen to, because, you know, that matters.
  10:26pm V Priceless:

Caught a chunk of it. Stevie Wonder was great, as usual, playing with Daft Punk, as was McCartney and QOTSA. Got any Mitchum calypso, Pseu? Or maybe The Move? Cheers!
  10:31pm me me:

Love your show Pseu! Old and new. And I'm not an old geezer.
  10:32pm P-90:

Chad!!! Can't wait!
@Pseu Braun: don't go ANYwhere and leave me all alone with these guys

I knew I should have copyrighted "Super Bowel" when I made that email typo years ago...
Avatar 10:34pm acid casualty:

I was flipping back and forth BTW Grammy's and barney miller. Thought nin was crap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Fuzzy:

I've called it that ever since!
Avatar 10:34pm Pseu Braun:

Questions answered: I've already interviewed Alan on these airwaves. Pete, apparently it does matter to you, deeply. I played the Move several weeks in a row now...
  10:34pm Andrew:

Pseu - I'm with you into the pop! I did watch some of the Grammys including Carole King's performance. Working at a HS I'm exposed to more current pop hits than I would be otherwise - semi-grudgingly I admit that I dig some of it. What's good is good! Not an NFL follower, but I always watch the Super Bowl. Thaks for playing The Three O'Clock. Are you familiar with The Hushdrops - you'd dig 'em. Please don't cut the show off early. Have a good one - AP
  10:36pm Super Bowel Snacks Inc. of Parsippany:

@ Fuzzy: Regardless, that is now a registered trademark.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

It's not nice to characterize all the WFMU listeners as snobs. I turn my nose up at such pedestrian antics.

Besides, I relished every minute of Clay's Billy Joel show un-ironically.
  10:39pm V Priceless:

I heard some of those Move moments, Pseu...very cool! What a great band! Thank-you!

Gosh, if I had a nickel for every year since I've heard "Star Baby," well, that'd be a couple of dollars.

Lovecraft I've been getting complaints that you won't STFU. please REFRAIN from posting. 3-4 a night is sufficient unless I'm or someone else is engaging you, thanks.

@Ken from Hyde Park: I was thinking the same thing re: Star Baby, but admitting it seems to underscore my "old geezer" staus.
But WTF, if you can come out of that closet, so can I
  10:54pm V Priceless:

Very catchy, that Sabina track!

  11:05pm V Priceless:

Great idea Pseu! I'm with ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm Jeezy:

Wow... Pseu really is on the rampage! Lovecraft is a regular commenter on many shows... Maybe even a DJ, i thought... he seems to have been banished from the board. Yikes!
  11:09pm kathy:

Just delete any comment that does not fit with your tiny reality. Ahhhhh, much better.
Discourse is so overrated.
  11:10pm P-90:

hahahahahahahahah! Lovecraft mebbe a DJ! Ha! Hahahahahaha
  11:11pm Mike Sin:

Re:"Star Baby"
Up until a few years ago, I didn't know that the song was actually pretty popular back in the day... I just knew it from the endless Guess Who comps. Somehow missed it in the '70s...

Pseu! You are my very fave hot mess, just saying..

Pseu's simmering fury tonight is oddly beguiling. I kind of want her to throw me over her knee and spank me.

I don't usually write in on your comments board Pseu, but you're still more than welcome to delete this shit with no complaints from me.

Haha, ironically i thought that glimpse of Bruno Mars was early Police at first! Sounds like it right?!
  11:15pm P-90:

  11:15pm DG:

Its actually the cartoon character Cathy, i think.

@Pseu: seriously tho, what was that garage-rocky song you played before death of samantha. I don't think it's on the playlist. I MUST KNOW.

Yes, it was Jimi opening for them. I found some interesting details here - www.monkeesconcerts.com...
