"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.)

"nwos/wfmu 2020"?! Does that mean that while I wasn't looking, Mr. Rolnick performed and recorded it for you?

Good morning. I have received word that Black Sabbath's debut album was released 50 years ago, yesterday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47am steveo:

(Yes, it was a Friday.)
Avatar 9:49am John Allen:

what? weren't records released on tuesdays back then?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54am steveo:

I dunno. Tuesday the 13th just doesn't sound as demonic, though.

Turns out I'm just allergic to cat noises.
Avatar 10:15am John Allen:

it's not their noise, it's their timbre

Upset the dog!

Sort of sounds like there's a sheep in there somewhere.

@steveo, Garfield was right. Monday the 13th is the scariest.

President Garfield?

Wow, Freddie managed to make "Dream Weaver" both wacky *and* yacthy!
Avatar 10:41am mariano:

Are they singing "Louisiana"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42am Handy Haversack:

Finding out will cost you, @mariano. Guess how much!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43am Ike:

He wasn't a very good president overall, but at least he did a lot to popularize lasagna.
Avatar 10:43am mariano:

Uh, I'm gonna guess... $5.20 Canadian?

Aha! My perspicacity knows no bounds.
  10:46am Nate K.:

Hey, John. That US Girls song was fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48am steveo:

Ike, I'd say something funny, but we're talking about Garfield.
Avatar 10:50am TDK60:

Morning Woofmoo radioland.
Avatar 10:52am JakeGould:

Garfield! Wha a fat, lovable cat that cat is.

In other news, that R. Lee Ermey (aka: Sgt. Hartman) GIF is really odd and not pleasant. I only ever see his imagery used in Brooklyn but lunkheaad right-leaning jerks as a joke.
Avatar 10:53am TDK60:

Yeah, Jake an angry sergeant is not my idea of an image I associate with Woofmoo university. But maybe I'm missing some humor intended? ...

this has been a delightful show @JA tyvm

Heya JA and AM'ers.
Avatar 11:04am JakeGould:

@TDK60: There could be some joke we’re not in on. Anyway, marathon is around the corner so things get weird in WoofMoo land, right?
  11:05am Jesse V:

That Charles Hayward Lopside remix beat was crazy. Didn’t catch what album it’s from?
Avatar 11:05am TDK60:

I guess, Jake. [?] (I didn't like Kissinger's photo being up there recently but made no protest.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07am Carmichael:

Alright, Sam Egan! No, wait ...

  11:12am Jesse V:

Thanks man!
Avatar 11:15am JakeGould:

@TDK60: That Kissinger photo was of a WFMU fan and supporter getting his book signed by said Henry K. So I support that.

Now you owe me for one jelly doughnut!!!

@Travon: It's Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40am Handy Haversack:

@Kenzo, there's the slightest obscuring of the song list scroll bar by the arrow at the end of the chat board's (disactivated) horizontal scroll bar on laptop. If you're still looking for feedback.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44am Handy Haversack:

Also, FWIW, if I shrink the window, there's no vertical scroll on the "songs" view, though there is on the "comments" view. Firefox. Windows 7.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54am Handy Haversack:

And thanks, JA! Enjoyed the morning!
