YES, thank you Fox!

Maybe I should get a copy of Forever Changes for my daughter. I'm sure she's heard it around the house here but doubt she's spent any alone time with it. Something for the Xmas or B-day list perhaps.

Liquor Giants! So good! I used to know Ward D. years ago. I wonder how he's doing?

Daniel Blumin played some segments he did with Wm that I really liked, helped me get a sense of who he was and his history with WFMU.

jet was one of those bands that was huge for three minutes, like jesus jones.
  12:58pm Listener142985:

i like that Jet song but this Spin headline from July made me laugh: Jet Un-Retire With Shitty New EDM Song
  12:59pm rw:

dale, I don't remember Jet. That song sounded cool though. Jesus Jones... I do remember them being huge for three minutes but no memory of what the sounded like. I'm guessing they had cool hair though.
Avatar 12:59pm Cheyenne:

A+ bed music, Pseu.

great critters cut
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm alanj:

Not to be jayjune but what is the origin of the name "thing with a hook"? Plus googling for "thing with a hook" is distracting. Plus what a great show, thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm Barkevious Shabazz:

1/2 Japanese, I suspect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Ahoy-hoy! Drat, I was just reminded that 9/19 was the day Gram Parsons passed away.
  1:17pm BnowB:

When Pseu said that I thought of John Bellushi in animal house smashing guitar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm Parq:

Alan J, if I could just leap right in here (I have no inside info on the subject), I've always understood it to be just a generic monster-movie name with a pun involving "hook".
(As in pop song with hooks, get it?) I did google it (I'm easily distracted) and most hits are to this show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm Michael 98145:

- this sound is the closest i'll ever get to a time machine -
  1:24pm frenchee:

The thing with a hook especially likes to stalk lovers' lanes....in my universe at least. and also, pun.
  1:26pm Mike tp:

so happy you're back Pseu!and captain beyond to boot.
  1:27pm BnowB:

Squires song reminds of squeeze in a fabulous way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm Switchblade Batman:

Killer show today Pseu, one for the books.
Avatar 1:34pm Listening Out There:

Am also enjoying the stream...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm doctorjazz:

Really enjoying the show! Haven't caught any of the previous ones.
  1:34pm JakeGould:

Pseu, logging in to ask… Is it safe to talk about sheds again?
  1:36pm rw:

Jake! No shed talk! (Actually I have no idea what you're talking about.)
Avatar 1:36pm V Priceless:

this vocal reminds me of the Who's 'Odorono' for some reason
  1:37pm melinda:

Enjoying the show.
  1:37pm rw:

I thought he was singing, "Baby laughed at Norman Fell".

apologies for any sound level deficiencies...working with multiple sources here, and plus...it's been a while..

hello Pseu again and welcome back!

- i'd like a shed please. do you do home demos?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm micah:

bad and predictable. like every Darren Aronofsky film
Avatar 1:56pm Jeff:

Oh, right. You saw the film "Mother" by Darren Aronofsky, you didn't run across the woman who birthed him shopping in a local store. Got confused at first.
  1:57pm melinda:

That will be a fun Continental Subway
  1:58pm melinda:

I don't think I've seen a Darren Aronofsky film. But I'm curious now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Fox (Rā-chul):

Pigface!!! Pigface at Tramps was one of the BEST shows I've ever been to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Fox (Rā-chul):

Aronofsky definitely has mother issues.
  2:01pm melinda:

This ELO sounds good.
  2:04pm zopa:

Yay!!!!! Harry Nilsson!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Krys O.:

Oh, it's been way to long in hearing this Nilsson track. It brings to mind my crush on James Komack on the show. Oof!

Immediately thought of this show the first time I heard Charly Bliss.

at first I thought Charly was the Breeders on the wrong speed.

Was Requiem for a Dream Aronofsky?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm doctorjazz:

Robert Quine on guitar, haven't heard his name in a while...
  2:17pm Websie:

I suspect as with The Gosling and THE BELIEVER, J-Law's best film will remain the first one we saw her in: WINTER'S BONE.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Michael 98145:

@Websie, yes, that was good
  2:19pm melinda:

I like J-Law in American Hustle. Silver Linings Playbook: bleh!

Websie so glad you're here live!

I am unfamiliar with Snow Patrol......I intend get more familiar after hearing this
  2:29pm melinda:

Nice cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Bootsie:

No one can touch Karen Carpenter on this... or anything else she sang, really.
  2:30pm frenchee:

I think ZD is doing a good job of it! That deep contralto (?) and the karaoke effect works.
  2:32pm Websie:

I am so glad to be able to hear you live from my station at Wiener King!

Vinyl Skyway are really triff.

What is that special "playing through a tinny speaker" effect you were using for Ms. Deschanel?
Avatar 2:36pm Pseu Braun:

that's just her on this recording. I pulled it offa twitter ... she was singing to a tinny recording.

  2:44pm Marie:

I heart Pseu and the tunes
  2:44pm zopa:

I'm a Nilsson fanatic, and I loved the puppet's cover.
  2:44pm pp:

zooey does have a rich voice
  2:44pm Listener142985:

Did Zooey Deschanel do something awful at some pojnt? Odd how vehemently some people dislike her.
  2:45pm rw:

Who did the version for The Courtship of Eddie's Father? Was that Puppet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Stevel:

So glad Pseu and the Hook are back on the air. Top notch stuff.
  2:47pm Websie:

I didn't see it, but i guess some people would count 500 DAYS OF SUMMER.
  2:49pm zopa:

@rw I believe it was Nilsson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Switchblade Batman:

@Listener Zooey could run over my dog, then feed it to me and I'd still be in love with her.
