"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Love this cover
  9:13am Listener Robert:

Some day you should play the version where at the end Rolnick gets up and says, "Now I've gotten the Everly Brothers stuck in your head." But I don't think that one's recorded in stereo.

love that stones tune@
Avatar 9:34am Wild Neil||Peace All:

I remember in 10th grade going on a field trip to Groton, CT for a fleld trip. We got on a submarine (it was a math class trip) and the Rolling Stones Undercover was playing. All these Navy dudes looked at us like "what are THEY doing on a submarine??. We also got to drive a submarine simulator. We had it almost upside down within 5 minutes. We thought we were so smart, but we were dumbness! OH, and the Elton John song, I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues played 50 times on the way home. Fun trip! I HATE that EJ song though.

@WN: in the simulator, isn't so bad if you're at the surface, just as long as you don't sink to the bottom like Russsian sub, Kursk.

@WN: As Socrates said, " A wise man admits he knows nothing". I'm not even sure if I know anything. (I'm not even wise).

is Grant Hart's voice always been that trebly? from what i remember in Husker Du, he sounded rough and gravelly (Real World).

lol you took another shot of cough medicine didn't you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am tim from champaign:

What is FMU going to do with the debedbugged beds from the street hauled in by a van?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am Booz:

I had a trip a little like this on Sudafed once
  10:59am Johnzon:

was that a joke?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59am tim from champaign:

Duh! Selling them is the office answer. It's a little early yet on the west coast. So who gets the profits? Does it go toward the station pot stash?
  10:59am Johnzon:

why are you bringing bedbug mattresses to wfmu lol... does ken know about this?!
  11:00am jesse in illinois:

yall best be dusting those mattresses in diatomaceous earth to lock those bugs and future bugs up!
Avatar 11:00am John Allen:

we're not taking donations. this is strictly volunteers on the lookout for nearly new mattresses
  11:00am Johnzon:

sorry my internet was cutting out I missed some of that...
  11:01am Robert Tables:

Do you take the super-flammable memory foam mattresses?
  11:02am Johnzon:

Im confused lol
Avatar 11:02am John Allen:

they just need to be new-ish and on the curb a few hours
  Swag For Life Member 11:02am destructo:

I had bed bugs several years ago. They can be really tough to get rid of. They can lie dormant for months. We kept treating and they kept coming back, but that was mostly because I couldn't convince my neighbor that he had them.

I salute your thriftiness but I wouldn't touch those mattresses with a ten foot pole... nuke them from orbit, it's the only way to be sure!
  Swag For Life Member 11:04am destructo:

If you can get them to 120 degrees F and keep them there for two hours, that would be much better... but the logistics for doing that to a bunch of mattresses might be tough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am tim from champaign:

If NYC is the city that never sleeps, how come it has bed bugs? Is NYC dumping their bedbugged beds in Jersey City?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05am karlward:

tim: it's not NYC, it's the mattresses that float down the Hudson from Albany, that's where the problem is
  11:06am jesse in illinois:

diatomaceous earth is the answer! dont forget, the diatoms aka plankton aka silicon based life of the air are watching...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06am tim from champaign:

I see!. Thanks for the clarification.
  11:08am Johnzon:

this has to be a joke lol... I must have missed the funny part when my internet cut out. bedbugs humor is tough to get across cause half the people react by screaming "bedbugs?! where?!" shaving their head and burning all their possessions
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08am Beast of Boonton:

WFMU slumber party in Monty Hall
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am steveo:

in the twitter: "<Gothamist> NYC Movie Theaters Could Face Fines For Bed Bug Laxity" perhaps they should sell diatomaceous earth at the concession stand?
  11:11am Johnzon:

oooh fun! if I don't have any bedbug mattresses for the cover can I bring a scabies mattress?
Avatar 11:11am John Allen:

let's be clear, there is a quarantine on Monty Hall for the next few weeks
  11:12am jesse in illinois:

i dont care about the rest of nyc/nj i just dont want wfmu shut down or itchy distracted djs underperforming
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13am Passaic River Blues:

@Beast of Boonton: A WFMU slumber party in Monty Hall would be like Altamont...with bedbugs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14am steveo:

epic set / the bedbugs in my headphones are dancing so expresively
  Swag For Life Member 11:15am destructo:

In all seriousness and not to be a jerk - please talk to an exterminator about this plan.

We had some belongings tied up in a plastic bag that we reopened 6 months after we were free of bed bugs... found a bed bug in the bag that woke up and started walking around. Just sayin'.

Avatar 11:18am John Allen:

apprciate the concern. there's a pretty lucrative secondary market for nearly new mattresses, so this will help us make thru the winter until the march fundraiser
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18am The Oscar:

Yay new Cobra Man! Their first album was one of my faves last year-- perfect stupid pop.

dub begs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am Beast of Boonton:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21am tim from champaign:

You guys, I think the "upselling" of begbugged mattresses is just a cover for Station Manager Ken finally going around the bend. He's accumulating mattresses in order to bunker down in Monty Hall Howard Hughes style.

  Swag For Life Member 11:24am destructo:

He'll make a killing in the post-oil mattress-based economy.

I really hope Nixon listened to the copy of this record they sent him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57am ɛɨk:

Was this first half of this song an influence on Negativland or was it influenced BY Negativland?

I can't believe I left this on for my cats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00pm The Oscar:

@Ike Probably the former-- IIRC Santa Dog was early '70s, when Hosler would've been a teenager.
