I hope there's a spot for you, Chris M. Your shows are great.
  12:13pm zopa:

seconding the sentiment. hope you come back in the fall.

hi all. great song.

I will miss you in this slot. Hope you return after this soon.

Sharing the general sentiment here. Imaginary Radio is one of the highlights of the listening week. The 1977 show was brilliant, as so many others have been. Sigh.
Avatar 12:17pm themutante:

The fitbaw scores! Classic!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Mick:

Echoing the wishes for your return, Chris M.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Sebastian:

You, Sir, are off the hook - good show! I'd also like to get in that line of those already wishing you back on the schedule.
Avatar 12:20pm strangesongs:

excellent office desk jams so far today! need to pick up all of these mainliner records, apparently...
  12:22pm zopa:

yeeeeaaaahhhh!!!! SLF!!

I am always happy when I wake up early enough to catch Imaginary Radio! :D

My next contribution to WFMU will be made upon Chris M's return. s'ok?

Courtly Love IS an excellent band name
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm blee:

Imaginary Radio will always have a place in my heart. The warm and fuzzy, yet dark and bloody place in my heart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Rich in Washington:

I forgot about 26! Interviews with Doc Corbin Dart are pretty interesting. He's wackadoodle, but not as wackadoodle than one would think from the legends about him. I mean, at least he's more lucid than our POTUS.
  12:58pm Blinda:

Tuning in late...just figuring out Chris M. not on the summer schedule? I do NOT vote for that. I guess our loss is Guam's gain?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Planet Tyler:

Ok, say youre joking about not being on the summer sched
  12:59pm Kurt:

There are figs in Guam?
  12:59pm Blinda:

Can we get a petition together?
  1:01pm Agent Peter:

@Kurt - It's in here somewhere: https://www.monumentaltrees.com/en/usa-ficusmacrophylla/insulararea/guam/

Feel bad for Napoleon. Exile sucks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm WO Town Wick:

As a New Jersey transit commuter who will see my daily train just plain cancelled because of summer repairs (which will probably add an hour or so to my daily commute), the news that Imaginary Radio is gone for the summer is much much worse. Summer of hell indeed.
Avatar 1:06pm Chris from DC:

Needed this set real bad.
  1:09pm mjgoins:

Come for the music, stay for the noise!
  1:11pm joe from Warwick NY:

I won't forget where I was when Chris played that 3 hr dance set. Shit was straight fire. I'm gonna miss all the laughter on Thursdays.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm WO Town Wick:

Out like a lion!!
  1:15pm Blinda:

It took some time for me to get used to Thursdays, as Imaginary Radio was my dear Monday morning companion, but I did - and it raised Thursdays to radio perfection. It's my favorite show on WFMU and one of only a couple that I purposely tune in to listen to. Is today the last show before summer schedule starts?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Here comes Eddie Money!
  1:18pm Marie:

Longmont is unbelievably good at what he does.
  1:26pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hey Chris and everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Michael 98145:

you could make an entire set of versions of Barbara Allen. just sayin.
  1:34pm DryEraser:

I've always enjoyed trying to figure out this Palace Brothers song. Seems like a weird mix of religion and incest.
  1:34pm Marie:

Have a great summer, Chris! I am trying to go meditate but I don't want to turn the show off... but now I must...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm dgg:

yeah, I'm a relatively new listener to wfmu, but this show was part of what brought me in. Music is always great. And really like Chris M. as a DJ too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm tallbuildings:

whoa wasn't expecting the vocals to come in on the imaginary radio theme.
  1:40pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@DryEraser: I feel like that description fits a lot of will oldham's songs...
Avatar 1:41pm Chris from DC:

  1:41pm DryEraser:

;-) for sure
  1:41pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hearing the actual songs behind fmu djs' bed music, or just hearing them in other contexts, always jolts me
  1:42pm Mark R:

Finally found out what this song was!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm chris:

i bet Chris M could manage a brilliant imitation of th'Cap'n...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm Rich in Washington:

I too am gobsmacked by this beautifully weird revelation...
  1:44pm Blinda:

me three. I feel stunned and enlightened.
  1:47pm zak:

Wow, sad to hear that Imaginary Radio won't be on the summer sked. WFMU's the greatest and all but every now and then it breaks your heart. Chris's description of 90's Japanese death grind fans twitching on their backs like cockroaches might be the finest DJ banter these ears have heard. Love you Chris M!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Rich in Washington:

Before I looked at the accuplaylist, I never would've guessed that was Beefheart, either. I had always heeded the warning to steer clear of those much maligned 70s Beefheart albums, but now my curiousity is thoroughly piqued.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Rich in Washington:

NOOOOO! Say it ain't so!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Rich in Washington:

First Diane and now Chris M.! Thursdays just got bleak.. BLEAK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@RiW - Next week, Diane returns to this slot, so things are not too bad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54pm tmoyo:

It's not gonna be easy to live without Imaginary Radio.
  1:55pm Agent Peter:

shouldn't be either/or with Diane & Chris M. Each offer something different that isn't found elsewhere on this station. Some obvious redundancies elsewhere but that's another story...
Avatar 1:56pm ron in S FL:

Yes, they both deserve a spot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Rich in Washington:

I am sorry to hear, Chris. I hope you are rescheduled soon. I alway look forward to your amazing shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Michael 98145:

what they've all been saying
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm JP from KC:

Damn! I'm just checking in. I'll miss you, Chris! This show is one of my favorites, and was my introduction to WFMU. The first time I ever tuned in, I heard that Beefheart music bed and immediately knew this was the place for me. Been listening ever since.
Avatar 2:11pm Chud:

You'll be greatly missed, Chris M!
  2:11pm fred:

Chris thanks for all the great shows and this one!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm tallbuildings:

I concur with everyone else. I've been listening since Imaginary Radio was on Mondays (my favorite way to start the week off) and it will be missed.
  2:19pm Mark R:

This Bola track is just beautiful...so dreamy and lovely on the first really great sunny day of Summer.
  2:20pm Listener142985:

Humble suggestion: All those who think spiking Imaginary Radio was a dumb call by the schedule makers should email station management and let their opinions be heard. Do it today or it will fall off your to-do list.
  2:26pm Mark R:

The segue from Bola to Afro-Funk's upbeat yet still-hypnotic groove is absolute perfection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm WO Town Wick:

Good idea Listener142985. I just emailed Ken. I may also conduct a sit-in soon at the Iron Monkey to (silently) voice my displeasure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm Cliff (temporarily not) in Prague:

Hey Chris, tuning in late today, hope you get back on the schedule in the fall!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Rich in Washington:

Oh my god! This is fantastic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm Michael 98145:

yikes, i just discovered Usenix still exists. maybe there is still hope.
  2:36pm Santos L Halper:

And so is this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm tmoyo:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Cliff (temporarily not) in Prague:

Wow, USENIX, haven't seen that name in a loooooong time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Rich in Washington:

This song is very hit and rock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Michael 98145:

anyone else here remember Usenet newsgroups?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Santos L. Halper:

So now that i have a couple months off work you go off schedule? Harrumph, i say.

All's fair in sex and broadcasting i guess. Thanks Chris, have a great summer!

Going to miss the IR, cheers Chris.

Someone should resurrect the 365 Days project. It's been far too many days since it ended.

See you later, Chris! Hope to hear you again really soon. Thank for all the amazing music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Oh...if you can do a podcast, please make it known.
  3:00pm Kimzilla:

I will miss your show and your humor.
  3:02pm Peter (up in Boston):

Seriously, how will I know it is Thursday? Thank you for literally hours of great ear-fun. Please surface again. I need me some Capt Beefheart remix bed.
