I am proud to say that I saw MC5 live in 1972 and I saw MC50 with Wayne Kramer in 2018. (I learned about that gig thanks to your show, Todd.) I listened to High Time dozens of times when it first same out Thanks for continuing the great tradition!

@WM I had the great honor of playing with the MC50 in Cleveland with my band Rough Francis. Never in my life thought I'd share a bill with Wayne Kramer. He was unbelievably gracious and humble, and continues to support us to this day

Sabbath !!! Oh Lord now!!
You’re getting heavy for a Saturday afternoon.

What’s up Boss Grover !!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Motobro:

Itz only me.
  3:19pm David in London:

I saw Sabbath about four years ago. They were just fantastic. Ozzy may have looked like he had just wandered out of an older people’s sheltered housing scheme, but his voice was still incredible. And a guy sitting a few seats down from my was dressed as a banana. That’s an original look for a Sabs gig, thought I.

Heavy times call for heavy music. Go Todd!

  3:27pm WM:

@Julian Hackney: You are even more blessed in great tradition than I am! Wayne Kramer plays at least as well - indeed, better - than he did 50 years ago. He is a few years older than me and yet he was still amazingly agile on stage. He is an icon, I'm sure, for all Todd-O- Phonic Todd listeners.

Is there a naughty word in American Crisis? I hadn't noticed.

Maybe Bob would do well to do a radio-play version? Then again, what other over-the-air station plays Bob Mould anymore? (Is there any other radio anymore?)

Well, speaking of storms, David, we have the first tropical storm of the season bearing down on us, due to hit tomorrow. Hurricane season is upon us, always good for that extra note of suspense. Otherwise all good. There was a really uplifting demonstration yesterday in the French Quarter, people of all descriptions and walks of life.

@Motobro Nice, not sure what I was on but rest assured it was something! Made up for not seeing Sabbath with Ozzy by seeing him at the Palladium on the Blizzard tour. I distinctly remember looking back up at the balcony and someone had cut a seat open, pulled the stuffing out, and set it on fire!

Thanks fpr listening everyone. I know my main purpose here is to entertain but I also realize I have a microphone and sometimes me and other station DJ's need to use it as an outlet for what they are thinking.

Tod, thanks for speaking up--frankly it is more disturbing now when we say nothing. And especially for pointing out that the problem is not just "hate"--but whether or not there are consequences for acting on that hate.

I thought it was a new band of his...not that I was ever really a fan, but up here north of the 49th parallel, you couldn't get away from those dudes back in their heyday...just one of the many downsides to government-imposed required percentages of Can Con (Canadian Content) on the broadcast airwaves...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Matt Fiveash:

Nick K- I doubt you're still here but that's a fucking stupid thing to say, for two reasons. One, Todd, and I think a lot of DJs on this radio station, feel compelled to comment where they normally wouldn't because we find ourselves in an unprecedented place in history right now, and it's very hard not to talk about it. Two- and this is what really burns my ass- you say WFMU is the only place you don't have to hear "this shit" (what is "this shit"? reality? current events? The notion that it's not cool to kill someone in handcuffs by kneeling on their neck?) as if an unpaid DJ, beholden to no one and nothing except a couple of FCC rules, speaking from the heart about the seismic changes happening in the world, is just more of the same thing you get on NPR, or Fox News, or Huffington Post Field & Stream or Juggs or wherever you get your information.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Spinning Giant:

@MattFiveash - YES! gratitude
  4:05pm kpx:

what's happening in our nation right now is so over the top outrageous that it can't be ignored. people are essentially protesting not only for the lives that have been takin. but to prevent lives from being taken. people can't depend on or trust a corrupt fascist law enforcement system the way it is set up now.

Just want to vent: Some of the best dance floors/ nights of my life was a mix of awesome music & politics bringing all sorts of ppl together. Some of the best music is either explicitly political or inspired by it. No idea where the idea that u can’t have a blast & stand for something came from.

I got all the Chocolate Watchband CDs that came out on Sundazed in the '80s, and it was clear that there must have been plenty of drama behind the scenes (session musicians replacing the band or some of the and, etc). I guess I'm vaguely aware that more real-band versions have come out since those Sundazed CDs, but I haven't kept track.

But they're fine records, no matter who's playing and singing.

It won't be long before the music starts again; only slightly longer than the amount of time it took you to tell the host of the radio show you chose to tune it to what he shouldn't say on his own show.

@JoeB: Small correction… The cops were called on George Floyd because he supposedly tried to pass a fake $20 bill at a corner grocery.

The owners of the store actually tried to stop the cops from their actions. And they were so upset by what happened they issued a statement condemning not only the actions but have changed their store policies as to when coos are called. And they paid for a George Floyd’s funeral.

So Billy is expressing that it shouldn't be a big deal to kill (oops!) a guy who's committed crimes in the past, or just got arrested for (allegedly) committing a minor crime.

But which crimes? Reckless driving is a crime that can have deadly consequences. Is that a crime it's OK for the cops to kill you over? Asking for a friend.
  5:34pm Billy:

Joe B, it's totally relevant (to why I don't feel any love for Floyd). I think a lot of people here just hate cops more than they hate criminals, and that's why they scream such platitudes as No Justice, No Peace.

Sure wish I could have been here for the show today, Todd -- but I am just going to thank you, sound unheard, for what you do, and who you are.

We need so much to hear DJs putting their passion and conscience into their sets. It makes every bit of the struggle easier to know that someone like you, Joe, Matt, Ken, you're all there too.

Thanks, Todd. Thanks for all you do.
