One pizza chain makes some excellent pizzas (some good traditional, some more nouveau), but doesn't deliver, which annoys me. Good parma ham, rocket and shaved parmesan pizza. And a shrimp and chicken teriyaki pizza. Their reindeer, red onion and chanterelle pizza on a rye crust has won awards.
Avatar 3:36pm βrian:

I've never known of a good pizza place that delivers. Pizza for dorm dwellers is something entirely different.

I don't care much for food rules (like how you're not supposed to have ketchup on a hot dog). You like pineapple on pizza, you get pineapple on pizza. Just don't share a pizza with me if you do that. Mainly I'm annoyed that it's sometimes hard to find pizza without pineapple on it over here.

Homemade ketchup sounds like it could be delicious. Although I would not risk the ostracism of my co-Chicagoans by applying it to a hot dog. In other news, I'm really happy I selected Fabio's premium based on what he's played.

  5:15pm kerry:

Great, thanks! was curious. Yeah I know Swag For Life. Just the ones with the weird names confused me.
  5:15pm Dean:

But not written until 1890, so this is...?
  Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Walt:

Not the Debussy composition, an earlier French folk song with a similar title:

@Dean: it's an old lullaby, not the Debussy

I like (and I mean genuinely) that the song total has jumped from 8 to 9 since I had to check out a 1/2 hour ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm Carmichael:

I picture Scott singing this with a bullwhip and sombrero.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Carmichael:

Scott 4 is the most popular.

Just realized I screwed up & my pledge was credited (mistakenly) to another show -- those dollars are for YOU, fabio. Let the karma-police take notice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Caryn:

"Jackie" has one of my all-time favourite lyrics, perfectly and succinctly summing up work as a pimp: "authentic queers and phoney virgins".
Avatar 5:32pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Yay, solaris: was jamming the vinyl soundtrack just yesterday. Gorgeous stuff.
Avatar 5:33pm Tusalava:

hi Mutant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm Andrew Waterloo:

What was the name of that book?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm Carmichael:

That's good news, Pat. Man U can stay home for a year ...

I have a John Davidson Christmas album!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Robyn Hitchcock!
  5:36pm Listener Robert:

You'd encounter WSOU & WSHU, I think.
Avatar 5:36pm Tusalava:

Polyus, what happened to your icon? Where's your dude?
Avatar 5:36pm Marcel M:

I'm back, what did I miss?
Avatar 5:37pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Hampton Inn Grease Band?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Carmichael:

Have you met your show goal, Fabio?
Avatar 5:38pm Tusalava:

I kept calling it Hampton Wick because I am very immature.
  5:40pm Polyus:

@Tusalava - I am posting via the app because I got busted by the Man.

  5:45pm Listener Robert:

I played rugby once in So. Orange, visiting with a team that was mostly Manhattanville Col. but picking up some of us from NY Med. Col. Seton Hall was supposed to host us, but got flooded out of their field. We wound up playing in a park with a wet gully running the length of the field. That was the spring where it rained every Fri. and/or Sat. for weeks & we played in mudhole after mudhole until late in the spring.

Later I played with the team from NJMS (UMDNJ on So. Orange Ave.), with Branch Brook Park (Newark-Belleville) as our home field. I later padded my resume by falsely claiming I'd taught Chemistry at Upsala Col. while I was a post-doc at UMDNJ, and it's possible I wouldn't've gotten my adjunct teaching job at Mercy Col. had I not lied like that. The only reason I knew Upsala Col existed was by listening to WFMU, and when I found out they'd gone out of biz, that meant nobody could check my claim!

Isn't my pledge in the running?
  5:51pm Listener Robert:

Cremaster is a muscle, not a gland, but it does fx as Dr. Pigeon stated.
  5:51pm nick n Hudson:

Cause this song is the good stuff
Avatar 5:52pm dale:

just watched the trailer for hly mountain on the youtoobs - holy hannah!
Avatar 5:53pm Tusalava:

This is the only place on the radio where y'all will just randomly start discussing the Cremaster Cycle while seguing into music from the sountrack of The Holy Mountain. I love you.

Avatar 5:55pm Tusalava:

I'm pretty sure Clay isn't a real doctor, so you may want to keep your pants on.
  5:55pm Listener Robert:

The interesting question is, why do the testes need to be at a lower temperature than the rest of the body? Body temperature both interferes w sperm prod'n & predisposes toward testicular cancer. Something about supporting the rate of terminal cell divs. leading to spermatozoa while not encouraging runaway cell prolifer'n.

You're butchering an Irish city name, Clay ...
  6:00pm Listener Robert:

Then what's Iceland? I'm pretty sure .ie is Iceland.

  6:02pm Listener Robert:

How do you like that, it is as Ken wrote.
Avatar 6:16pm pGolay:

I think Bolton is just a really boring town. Good place to be 'from'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Bolton spelled backwards is Notlob.
  6:24pm Listener Robert:

You were kidding, but Mr. Pigeon would be great doing serious interviews, political debates, etc. He's in a league w Howard Stern & Art Bell in being able to draw out truth or something close to it.
  6:27pm Listener Robert:

I suppose it's possible that it's harder doing interviews w people who are used to giving interviews rather than with the MITS. Maybe when the interviewer puts up resistance, it could become like The Human Serviette. But my hunch is that Clay could do it.
  1:51am gordon:

Fabio and Clay today were the funniest radio I have heard in years; a virtual Martin/Lewis; Wilder/Feldman Harris Allsworth-Z-man duo; please team up more often.
