funny song!!! great song..
  Thu. 1/1/09 10:56am Meghan:

Hey Joe! Do we have that Fujiya and Miyagi record at the station? Was looking for it. My brother played me that song and it was strangely addictive.
  Thu. 1/1/09 10:57am SmokinJ:

Two cup french press? A pot of coffee is 10 cups or so. Drank one this morning:) Coffee is one of those staples of life..
  Thu. 1/1/09 10:58am annie:

i limit myself to two cups... so the second pot is an extravagence. i use espresso blrnd and make it strong.. love the kick!
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:00am SmokinJ:

I admire your self control..
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:01am annie:

  Thu. 1/1/09 11:02am Joe:

Hey, Meghan! I brought the F&M from home. Check the basement?
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:03am SmokinJ:

  Thu. 1/1/09 11:04am Meghan:

Thanks, Trouble! I'm having a great time. Happy New Year!!
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:28am Parq:

Joe, joining you for the seventh reel. So nice to find you on my radio on this cold yet welcomingly bright AM. (Foxfire spellcheck says "welcomingly" isn't a word, but what do they know?) Chock Fulla Nuts is steeping, and I'm digging the quiet sounds, thought it looks like I missed some pretty killer upbeat stuff. Ho there to Annie, Smokin, all the gang.
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:29am annie:

word up parq, HNY!!!
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:30am SmokinJ:

Happy New Year Parq! Peace.
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:31am Matt:

Nice show, Joe.
I'm pissed that you scooped out the Bill Parker TNKs cover, but what does a feller expect? I thought I had a private, secret relationship with that track! What's the story behind that Nathan Bell cut?
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:32am Joe:

Hey, Parq, thanks for the swell words. Hope the coffee gets you off to a good start! Matt, I love that version of TNK!! The Nathan Bell is from a new EP, looks self-released. It's straight-up great.
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:42am monica:

hey joe,
lovely way to start off the year hearing you on ye olde radio.
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:42am Joe:

Why, shucks, Monica, thanks!!
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:52am jeff m:

great show Joe, happy new years
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:53am lupica:

Allow me to join Monica's chorus: great show, Joe!
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:55am annie:

joe , it's been wonderful.. just great.. thanks.. have a great weekend..
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:55am ken in denver:

Happy new year, Joe,

First time listener to your show, but I'll be watching for you after this. Great version of Tomorrow Never Knows!
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:55am Joe:

Thanks, Jeff! Thanks, Mike! Happy New Year to both of you!!
  Thu. 1/1/09 11:56am Joe:

Thanks, Ken in Denver!
