Listener comments!

Avatar 8:40pm Dave the Spazz:

Kicking off tonight’s show with a shout-out of massive thanks during these tough times: Sam Elwitt for lending me his Mackie mixer (without which, broadcasting from home would not be possible), Scott Williams for running the board tonight along with the other heroic WFMU Skeleton Crew Champs who show up at the station on the regular: Michele With One “L,” Joe McGasko, Matt Warwick, Ruth, Olivia, The Pidge, and of course our Fearless Leader, Station Manager Ken for steering us through the craziest times that anyone’s ever lived through.

BIG thanks to the anonymous WFMU donor who came up with thousands of dollars for equipment so the DJs could broadcast with no pants on from the safety and comfort of their own homes. And of course, thanks to the WFMU DJs who are the best radio people in the world, pants or no pants.

On a personal level, thanks to listeners Celeste and Diana for delivering groceries and supplies during the worst times and to all of the pals everywhere, on and off social media, who have checked in and lifted spirits immeasurably throughout all of this. I’m humbled and floored and humbled again, but not in that order. I'm also probably 99% over this virus.

Oh, and thanks to Ira the K for filling in for me last week and thanks to Bob Dylan for the best show I never did. Finally, eternal gratitude to the WFMU listeners who helped us out during the recent fundraising marathon and who continue to keep WFMU as a constant in their lives. Stayed tuned in and we won’t disappoint you.

Stay healthy, everyone!

Okay, let’s get this stupid show going....

very happy to be tuned in to this show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Scott Williams:

Brother Marcel! That Welles line is from (I think) the commercials he did for that wine that would not be served before its time. Collected by Nick Bougas on the "Celebrities at their Worst" comps

@Scott Williams: Too funny!! I've heard it so many times on this show but never realized it was him till looking it up.
Avatar 9:24pm Marcel M:

looking it up just now I mean
Avatar 9:24pm Bryant:

Scott, the Orson Welles line is actually from the frozen peas commercial! I was delighted to find that it has its own Wikipedia entry: en.wikipedia.org...
  9:24pm Wilson.:

Thank you Daaaave! This song has haunted me for years!
Avatar 9:24pm Mike & Dusty:

okay everybody wants to know
but no one has the guts to ask it

...is the dylan show archived?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Stevel:

Oh my. Its the rock, isn't it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Scott Williams:

Ah! thanks for the clarification, Bryant!
  9:26pm P-90:

@Marcel: It’s a famous outtake from a voice-over session Welles was booked to do for one of a series of wine commercials. The producer in the control room actually started critiquing Welles’ line reading of the copy. Verbal sparring ensued.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Scott Williams:

and the link, wow!
  9:27pm P-90:

I stand corrected; it was the frozen peas ad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Scott Williams:

Marcel, when you're allowed back in the building, check out all those comps, there's a buncha volumes (tho vol 1 is still the best)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm JOE FROM DC:

I think this Lincoln Surf Opera should get a video made, and a new release on Vinyl, CD, and Edison Cylinder for max impact!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm pollypinocle:

root of dummy = "dumb me"?
  10:38pm BH:

it's possible a surf rock account of the Lincoln-Douglas debates didn't make the cut for this release
