Regarding Lemmy as Welsh beach shepherd:

Nardwuar: I heard you once had a job walking donkeys along the beach. Kids would be on donkeys-
Lemmy: That was in Wales.

N: What was that job all about? This seems interesting! Lemmy of Motorhead walking donkeys with kids on the beach.
L: Well, I didn't do that. I used to take rides in school. I used to ride horses, not donkeys.

N: Did you ever wear those tights at all? They were sort of a precursor to Spandex, those biking-
L: What?

N: Those tights? Biking tights?
L: Tights?

N: Tights, you know. Tights for when you're riding a horse.
L: I don't understand. What do you mean?

N: You know like when you see people when they're riding a horse, they wear tight pants, tights, special-
L: Jumpers?

N: Yeah.
L: Tights are what we call pantyhose. Okay, yes. I didn't wear pantyhose much.

@Sony BMG, you can't do that! You have to use a shell corporation to put a little bit of room between you and the radio stations!
  10:55am Listener Robert:

If you want to make Ken uncomfortable, bring up grey-area scenarios where he might be temped and conflicted about possible commercialism -- far from outright corruption. Actually you can make a LOT of people uncomfortable by making them confront the boundaries of their ethics. Because they're good but also ambitious people.

Garbage time is near the end of a timed team contest when it's already obvious which team is going to win, and both teams put in their scrubs and the regular players lose their form and play carelessly or very speculatively. Most commonly heard of in basketball.

it's good to know where die rathaus is, because it's often in the center of a city where there's lots going on (beer, food, etc). when lost, it's easier to ask where that is rather than "where's that bar" since there are about a bazillion bars in deutschland
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42am Own CrabappleSatellite Johnzon:

Hey Ken, I was out walking my dog when this came up so I couldn't comment at the time... I was hoping you could provide some clarification in re. your earlier anecdote. So... when the guy from Aligator Records showed up with a wad of cash the DJ DID play his record or did NOT? I'm just curious... I mean if that's your protocol I might stop by next time I'm in New Jersey... also how big a wad was it? What's the minimum wad size to bribe a WFMU DJ with? Does it depend on the DJ... I'm sorry I just have so many questions now!!!

@LindaLee I had to look up what gender CD is. Found this online: The most common method, though, is to take the gender of the nearest German translation or equivalent. So we have, for example:

"das Baby", because of "das Kleinkind"
"der Pyjama", because of "der Schlafanzug"
"das Blog", because "blog" is short for "web log", and "log" means "das Logbuch"
"die CD", because "CD" means "compact disc", and "disc" means "die Scheibe"
"der Smoking" because it is a type of suit, which in German is "der Anzug"
