  Sun. 1/17/10 3:09am Sue:

hey Joe! good morning to my favorite dj!
  Sun. 1/17/10 3:10am Joe:

Good mornin', Sue! How is my loyalest most faithfullest listener?
  Sun. 1/17/10 3:17am Sue:

pretty good. a little tired i guess. how are you doing this evening? or morning
  Sun. 1/17/10 3:20am Joe:

Feelin' pretty good, but a little tired, too. I'm sure I'll perk up soon!
  Sun. 1/17/10 3:24am Sue:

I'll keep you company! I wimped out on you last week but I'll make up for it tonight :)
  Sun. 1/17/10 3:26am Joe:

Cool! Thanks, Sue! Not too interested in having a Sunday this week? ;)
  Sun. 1/17/10 3:28am Sue:

hmm, i might have to sneak in a power nap during the day i guess. and sunday's supposed to be all rainy anyway. i won't be missing much. i have monday off from work for the ol' holiday too so i get an extra day this weekend
  Sun. 1/17/10 3:35am Joe:

Congrats on having Monday off--thanks, MLK. Sunday's rainy? Wow, I think I'll get a nice sleep, too!!
  Sun. 1/17/10 3:45am (mta) Tony:

Hey, I'm here, too, y'all. Prof. Dum Dum ignored me completely during his show. He always does. But Joe doesn't and he seems to starting his single file early this week. Sue, I know you've got dibs, but you won't be the only person keeping Joe company this MORNING here in New York. I'm a block from MLK Blvd. and you can believe there'll be action in da hood tomorrow (Monday).
  Sun. 1/17/10 3:47am Joe:

Welcome, MTA Tony! I promise not to ignore you!
  Sun. 1/17/10 3:50am Sue:

nice, i used to live on MLK in newark actually. and actually near another MLK in the bronx a long time ago. and i don't mind sharing.
  Sun. 1/17/10 4:00am (mta) Tony:

That's amazing, Sue. Thanks, you're sweet.
  Sun. 1/17/10 4:03am Joe:

She really IS sweet! Although this week, it's Sweet Sue, (not) just you!
  Sun. 1/17/10 4:32am jim paterson:

bobby charles who also wrote " see you later alligator" !
  Sun. 1/17/10 4:34am Joe:

That's the very dude!
  Sun. 1/17/10 4:59am Ike:

Did somebody say Newark? I'm here! Not near MLK Blvd. though.
  Sun. 1/17/10 5:00am (mta) Tony:

Jaime Brockett's i and m are reversed Joe. Let's try to get the spelling right! Always love your shows especially your single file. What word gets edited out of the Judge Dread song? Is that your bleep or on the record?
  Sun. 1/17/10 5:07am nick garofalo:

good show mr.DJ. Sleep well..just waking here in Italy....
  Sun. 1/17/10 5:08am (mta) Tony:

Actually, I think it's "You're THE First, THE Last, My Everything." Thanks for answering my bleep question. I'll have to listen to that track again to catch the song. OH, the Purling Hiss is outstanding!!!
  Sun. 1/17/10 5:09am Joe:

Thanks for keeping me honest, Tony. I'll go back and fix these errors. This is, I'm afraid, fairly typical for me at this hour, so I usually go back later and clean up the playlist. It'll be sparkling by the end of Sunday, I swear.
  Sun. 1/17/10 5:15am (mta) Tony:

Just read a report that said the original title was "You're MY First, THE Last, My Everything," so I really don't know for sure anymore. I'd say you'd be right to go by what's written on the record. Just ignore me, too. I deserve it. Love the Hiss!
  Sun. 1/17/10 5:17am Joe:

Thanks, Tony, always love it when listeners dig deep. Howdy to Nick in Italy and Ike in Newark!
  Sun. 1/17/10 5:55am Sue:

still here... thanks for the tunes, joe!!
  Sun. 1/17/10 5:57am Joe:

Wow, Sue, you're amazing! Glad you enjoyed the show...I'm on my way out of here, so thanks everybody for commenting.
  Sun. 1/17/10 5:58am Sue:

Happy MLK Day to everyone!! :)
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:01am Sue:

Cool, how lucky are we? we get mr. mcgasko for a few extra minutes! hope you're holding up ok. i'm sure your bed's a-callin'
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:04am Joe:

Aw, shucks, Sue! :)
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:14am Sue:

woo hoo! marathon Surface Noise! what a rare treat
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:16am Joe:

Ha ha, Sue! Don't say the word "marathon," at least not yet!
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:20am Sue:

well, at least i get to hear more of you for a little bit, however long that may be. i just got my second wind. and i'll need you while i fold laundry
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:24am minerva:

my humanclock goes totaly wrong now.
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:32am Joe:

Don't worry, Minerva, my clock is going wacky, too.
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:37am minerva:

no prob.i like your music
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:39am Joe:

Thanks, Minerva. It's going to get light soon and I'm going to turn to powder, so I'm a little scared.
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:49am Bas, NL:

Nice Bodah-bridge Joe! And thanks for sticking around!
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:50am Joe:

Hey, no problem, Bas--Dan ought to be here soon, hopefully with Jozef van Wissem.
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:53am Rebecca in Hoboken:

Uh, oh! I was just going to turn your accuplaylist off as I linked your show. I see Dan's not in. I can link with it on.
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:54am Rebecca in Hoboken:

It's going to have to be edited next week if you want the whole archive. The first three hours have uploaded all ready.
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:56am Joe:

Hey, Becky! Yeah, let's do that next week, if it's not a problem.
  Sun. 1/17/10 6:58am Rebecca in Hoboken:

Liz does the editing, but she will do it if you want. Your first three hours are archived. I'm going back to sleep.
  Sun. 1/17/10 1:20pm Mike Sin:

Gentleman Joe beats me again -- I've never purchased nor seen a Ravi Shankar 45! I am familiar with the LP from which that song was pulled, though --"Transmigration Macabre" was the soundtrack to some freaky British film that I've never seen, but this LP contains Shankar's most "Western-styled" psychedelic pieces out there. It's a great complement to his nephew's (Ananda Shankar) self-titled LP from 1970.
