Sorry to miss you today, Charlie. Hope all is ok.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59am Charlie:

Thanks, Jeff. Everything will be fine, Jeff. Just have to cancel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00pm Webhamster Henry:

Boo. I'll have to go back to doing nothing or play some archives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01pm Uncle Michael:

Don't do anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm Michael:

Shoot just saw your 2nd message Charlie. We'll all miss you but see you next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm Uncle Michael:

Aww...best to you, Charlie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm doctorjazz:

Sorry you won't be on Charlie...this is my time to catch up with Bodega Pop, I guess.
  12:03pm Listening Out There:

Still Listening Out There. Just listening to something else this time... :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm listener james from westwood:

Will be listening next week with ears all the hungrier! Be well, Charlie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm Parq:

Oh well. Joining everyone else in wishing you well, Charlie. Have had sudden emergencies myself, as I'm sure everyone has.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Mike East:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Mike East:

I mean...Hey, what's up, guys? How's it goin'?

Wishing you well Charlie
amused at this "no show" playlist
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm Webhamster Henry:

Y'know, I wish the robotically chosen stream had a playlist and comments !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Uncle Michael:

I'm listening to the first Carpenters album. I'm commenting on that fact.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Cliff:

Aww, I guess I'll have to do nothing all by myself this week
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Charlie:

I was going to take down this playlist, but as everyone seems to be enjoying commenting, I'll leave it. Apparently my message to cancel did not reach command central before show time, so the link from the WFMU home page will remain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Cliff:

See you next week Charlie! Hope everything's going ok
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Charlie:

Oh, OK, now the link from the home page is gone. See you all next week!
Avatar 12:42pm Jeff:

Sigh. We should play a BDN repeat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm doctorjazz:

If you haven't heard it, I'm listening to last night's Bodega Pop, I'd recommend it to Beatles fans (and Beatles haters, you'll enjoy all the deconstruction).
Hope all is well, Charlie, see you next week (it is interesting that we still have a comments board quite active today).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm -Ken:

Hi all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Cliff:

Hi Ken!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm -Ken:

I'm always down for a radio show without the radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm People Like Us:

this is the new no show show, welcome
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm People Like Us:

this is the future
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm Cliff:

This track I'm hearing right now in my imagination is fantastic! Too bad it's never been recorded anywhere
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm People Like Us:

reminds me of pre-1998 before i had broadband and I'd visit the WFMU site and just *look at it*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm Cliff:

It's even better than Bohemian Rhapsody
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm doctorjazz:

Beyond the Valley of a Day in the Life by the Residents up now, wild track (have that album, but haven't listened to it in $%^%$ years...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm People Like Us:

what do you think Charlie isn't going to play next?
  12:54pm Listening Out There:

Vicki, my guess is "The Sound of Silence." What do you think?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm doctorjazz:

What was that John Cage piece?....
  12:56pm Listening Out There:

doctorjazz: 4' 33"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm -Ken:

VOIVODDD!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm -Ken:

I'm sorry, thought I heard Voivod. My mistake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Parq:

An NPR piece released on line an hour ago states that a "new law in France makes it a crime to pay for sex." French guys, if you ask a girl to go to bed with you, and she asks you to take her to dinner first, call the *police* on her!
  1:00pm Listening Out There:

Jeez, Ken no less. Everyone but the host...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Cliff:

He's definitely not playing Cygnus X-1
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm Cliff:

(doctorjazz - Thanks for the tip about last night's Bodega Pop, I'm listening right now :)
Avatar 1:06pm Jeff:

When Charlie isn't explicitly playing something else, I tend to imagine Charlie playing "It Isn't Easy Being Green".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Lovely doing NOTHING together. Sorry Ken, VOIDDDD!!!!! not VOIVODDDD!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm People Like Us:

this VOIVODDD is great, hope once this is done Charlie plays it again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm People Like Us:

yes, I generally default to The Muppets, if in doubt
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm -Ken:

90.1fm was off the air but now it's back. I blame Charlie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Cliff:

I'm performing 4'33" right now. I open my desk drawer, look at it blankly for a while, then close it, then I open it again...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16pm People Like Us:

could lead to dancing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16pm Cliff:

My performance is complete. I got no response from my audience, namely the ladybug on my windowsill.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17pm Cliff:

Oh wait, now she's crawling away. Never seen a ladybug dance though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm doctorjazz:

This is taking Doing Nothing to it's ultimate logical conclusion!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm doctorjazz:

99 Problems, Danger Mouse's take on Helter Skelter up on Bodega Pop now...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm Cliff:

I just finished hearing Whole Lotta Helter Skelter, so we're semi-not out of synch
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm doctorjazz:

Half hour to GTDS STream Live music again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm Charlie:

Actually, I'm playing John Cage's "As Slow As Possible," and we're just in between notes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Charlie:

Matt Fiveash will be on at 2pm as usual: wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Charlie:

And, in case anyone is not familiar with it, "could lead to dancing" is the punchline of an old Jewish sex joke.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm doctorjazz:

Who NEEDS Stinkin' DJ's (...me :) )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Approaching Seinfeldian Nothingness!
  1:36pm frenchee:

HAAAAAAA, come back soon Chaz! I'll stay for @mattfiveash of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Cliff:

It's a mitzvah! (As long as you're not dancing)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm doctorjazz:

Great version of Yesterday from Philippine Violaters, for people who hate that song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm doctorjazz:

I missed the comments section of Bodega Pop yesterday, this is my make up session...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Cliff:

Thanks for the commentary from my future, doctorjazz
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Cliff:

Enjoying the Siberian version of "Come Together" by Bugotak.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm doctorjazz:

:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm doctorjazz:

OK, off to Matt, see y'all next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58pm Cliff:
