Supposed to be doin my taxes - instead i'm doin the robot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm Stevel:

Without The Saints, what would 80's Hardcore sound like?
Avatar 3:09pm BadGuyZero:

I'm afraid if I do the robot I'll have to go back to the hospital.
Avatar 3:10pm Joe B:

you can't blame the Saints for that!
Avatar 3:11pm BadGuyZero:

I bet Saints songs have caused a few people to need to go to the hospital.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Stevel:

BGZ: You're halfway there with the staples, right? Hope you're healing well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Stevel:

Is there a documentary about The Saints? If so, please tell me its titled "Blame The Saints."
Avatar 3:13pm BadGuyZero:

I got a railroad track of staples across my abdomen. They'll likely be gone by this time next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Greg from Bloomfield:

@Joe B: Psssh. I did my taxes over a year ago!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Greg from Bloomfield:

PS In college I was in a punk band with Ognir's son! No foolin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Stevel:

Why do I own no Courtney Barnett? What the fuck is wrong with me?
Avatar 3:17pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Was that going out to me?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Stevel:

Say yes, Todd. Say yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Stevel:

...or no. It could be a trap.
  Swag For Life Member 3:19pm norske jersey boy:

Ar-Kaics and Ms. Courtney - kicking it with the new and the classics - yeah Mr. Todd-A-Phonic!
  3:21pm Hel:

I didn't get the pledge email. Either the mgmt wants me to disappear or my room mate deleted it
  Swag For Life Member 3:21pm norske jersey boy:

Can't wait for the Sonics' Gerry Roslie interview next week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm Stevel:

No one I knew had Suzi Quatro records, so she's still relatively new to listen to. Don't think my parents would have liked the covers. (They were your ride to the mall.) I sure did.
Avatar 3:26pm David Shortell:

The Sonics are playing the Stone Pony the second Thursday from now, so I guess I'll be ending my years-long boycott of that joint.
  3:27pm tedcogs:

Gerry Roslie next week? I thought it said today just half an hour ago?
  3:27pm ScottC:

Good thing I gave to Dave The Spazz
  3:28pm ScottC:

I would have fallen into the trap but Dave got me first...
Avatar 3:29pm Sean B.:

What a fucking playlist so far man!.
  3:29pm Listener Robert:

There must've been some comedian who used "clams on the WHOLE shell" before, but if not, congrats to you for coming up with a great half-liner. I live for things like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Stevel:

Listener Robert: Either way, its a new one to me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm efd:

dammit, you one-upped me again Todd-O-Phonic!
Avatar 3:33pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@efd: it's okay, you hepped me to the album! I understand playing the first cut, I get lazy too sometimes!
  3:34pm ScottC:

I only eat oysters when I'm on the coast - if you get my drift...
Avatar 3:34pm Sean B.:

Has anyone of you peeps including YOU @JoeB heard of this great band from Ventura CA- Massenger?; Excellent debut album. Just throwing that out there but my heart & ears are very much with THIS at the present.
  3:35pm JakeGould:

Too chilly for Twilly? Why that is a pun!
  3:35pm ScottC:

I learned my lesson by eating oysters in Flagstaff...
Avatar 3:36pm Victrola Tom:

What better way to spend halftime of bat mitzvah day than with Todd-O-Phonic?
Avatar 3:39pm Victrola Tom:

But then again, I alvvays like listening to great music.....hint...hint.
  3:45pm G:

too chilly for Twilly? silly!
Avatar 3:46pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Alvvays rules
Avatar 3:48pm Sean B.:

I just cant believe you followed up Courtney Barnett with Roxy Music's "Virginia plain" fucking genius. And this Alvvays is SUPERB. I'm here
Avatar 3:49pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Madness is right!
Avatar 3:50pm Victrola Tom:

Subliminal messaging system check = positive.
  3:51pm David in ATL from NJ:

Uh, Todd. Can you rock a little more?
Avatar 3:52pm Victrola Tom:

King Tuff is alright baby.

for what it's worth, personal and the pizzas fanclub has a zip code of 07030
Avatar 3:56pm BadGuyZero:

I will be at Monty Hall tonight! I'm hoping to make it back up for the Ex Hex show.
Avatar 3:57pm Victrola Tom:

Ex Hex Rips!!, be there or be.....somehwere not as good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Gaylord Fields:

The worst part about Todd-o-phonic absconding to Austin with the marathon funds was that he offered to give me my cut from the Yo La Tengo show only after he was caught.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Stevel:

Avatar 4:02pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Gaylord: Yet you still took it!
Avatar 4:06pm BadGuyZero:

Hey Todd, you think you have enough left over to cover my hospital bill?
  4:07pm G:

That's sick lol
Avatar 4:13pm JakeGould:

@GaylordFields: Did he touch the widows and orphans fund? WFMU widows and orphans would be mighty pissed off at that happening.
Avatar 4:17pm BadGuyZero:

In the not too distant feature we'll all be able to own a Mark Arm bobblehead of our very own!

Avatar 4:18pm Victrola Tom:

I think we just heard a TOPT Muhoney mash-up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Gaylord Fields:

@Todd-o-phonic: I thought it was a change in procedure. It's hardly my fault I slept through the pre-marathon staff meeting.
  4:22pm IRS/NSA:

We vacuumed up that little exchange :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Gaylord Fields:

@JakeGould: You'd be horrified at how many of those widows and orphans Todd is responsible for, one way or another. So I guess he's entitled.
  4:33pm Tommy:

Excellent show TT, I would pledge to it but you may go on another reckless and irresponsible partying spree
Avatar 4:34pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Beautiful. Making me cry.
Avatar 4:37pm Victrola Tom:

You'd think with all that cash I could at least get an I heart Austin t-shirt...but no. Must've been a killer party.
  4:38pm yep, yep, yep:

I think they were trying to teach the world to sing.
Avatar 4:38pm Sean B.:

Nothing like a Coke at 5 in the morning on an empty with a Chesterfield filterless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Gaylord Fields:

@Todd-ophonic: Not only will I remember the late, great Michael Brown for writing some of the most gorgeous songs in pop history for the Left Banke, Montage, the Beckies, and Stories, I also appreciate his being indirectly responsible for our favorite malaprop title: "Bartenders and Their Wives"!

Avatar 4:42pm Sean B.:

@Gaylord that's a sweet link buddy.
  4:42pm yep, yep, yep:

May be time for a wondermint darlin.
  4:46pm Tommy:

One of the best songs EVER
Avatar 4:46pm BadGuyZero:

My first post-high school girlfriend was named after this song.
  4:46pm ?:

Excellent set of tunes...
Avatar 4:50pm Victrola Tom:

My new favorite version of that song. Eclipsing Billy Bragg's talk-over version. Beautiful.
  4:50pm Tommy:

Exactly right TT. I would die without FMU. it's like water to me ,essential for life
Avatar 4:52pm Sean B.:

@Tommy Most Certainly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks for your informed and passionate perspective, Todd.
  4:53pm ScottC:

Hats Off TOT. Sometimes I feel like I should get Collage Credit for listening to FMU. From Shadow Morton to Kim Fowley - I've learned a lot...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm patrick321:

I second that emotion from Gaylord Fields. Worth saying and well said Todd.
  4:56pm Tommy:

Yes , the Four Tops vs Left Bank Walk Away debate is alive and well .Both are great but I l prefer the very earnest Left Bank version ..is it a version if they wrote it ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm Melissa Jean:

hay awesome show!!!
Avatar 4:56pm Sean B.:

That beauty most certainly can't be replicated [I didn't say that because you did @TT ]It;s like Someone trying to cover "Waterloo Sunset" or something....
Avatar 4:56pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Thanks a lot folks...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm Stevel:

As a citizen of Indiana, I thank you for the honor you have bestowed upon our misguided, cowardly, Koch Bros. wanna-be slut of a man.
  4:58pm Listener Jumpy:

Excellent tribute to Michael Brown! I recall the '90s tribute album SHADOWS BREAKING OVER OUR HEADS being excellent.
Avatar 4:58pm Sean B.:

Funny!, I gave the original copy of this album "Some Girls" of mine [Mint] to my landlord this morning as a present. His office is right below me....I swear.Rock and Fuckin' Roll
  4:59pm ScottC:

Last good Stones album. What happened? Saw them on this tour in 78 - Oakland squeezing vodka filled oranges into our upturned mouths...
Avatar 5:01pm Sean B.:

Lucille Ball cover...
  5:02pm ScottC:

@ Sean B second only to the Exile cover...
Avatar 5:02pm Sean B.:

He doesn't seem to mind FMU, Ive been crankin' REX and Todd...all morning.He's a multi millionaire.
Avatar 5:03pm Sean B.:

Is there a semi-rare version of the Exile Cover?
Avatar 5:06pm Sean B.:

@ScottC I never saw them...I am envious obviously.The "Handsome Girls" boot from that tour is fucking priceless.
  5:08pm ScottC:

@Sean that might be Black
  5:09pm ScottC:

Avatar 5:10pm Sean B.:

@ScottC I don't follow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm efd:

Another great artist who probably gets more love on WFMU than any other radio station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm efd:

(previous comment was referring to Mink Deville)
  5:13pm ScottC:

Funky funky app... The Stones album that I remember causing the most trouble was Black And Blue not sure if the FMU app can handle symbols like "
  5:14pm ScottC:

Yep! Can't use ampersands
Avatar 5:14pm Sean B.:

Black and blue.....Still rock and roll and roll to me. Great album.
  5:15pm ScottC:

My daughter was in love with Willy Deville when she was about 5 - what's the album Lupe Garou? Loved it...
  5:18pm ice in bklyn:

Man, Shadows breaking over my head is one of my favorites.
Anyways thanks for the m Brown..

I gotta go Brothers And Sisters my # 978-372-981. If any woman want's to marry me and have my children. Or any of you lovely people want me to cook you dinner. This was the best radio day I've had in a long time IT started with ALEX MCNIEL at 5:20 this morn. OUT!.

I kinda like this Colleen Green track, though it sounds like it came out when I was young, and she probably wasn't born back then
