  Sun. 6/20/10 12:08am Joe M.:

  Sun. 6/20/10 12:08am Sue:

i'm sure darlene is out there... hey they said susan!!!
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:09am Seamus:

What? No Seamus?
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:10am Joe M.:

Ha ha--it was filmed in New York, you'd think they would have a Seamus!
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:10am minnesota jeff:

Seamus is a common NY name?
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:11am Joe M.:

Well, probably used to be, if not now!
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:11am Seamus:

I did hear Jim in there twice, which technically works. idk Jeff? I'm from Michigan
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:12am minnesota jeff:

I work with a Seamus, but its not his real name. He's from Ireland.
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:13am Seamus:

Is his name James?
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:13am minnesota jeff:

Ehhhhh, yeah. Thats odd, how would you know that?
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:14am Anonymous in Essex Co.:

Good God, that Paula and Carole thing just about put me into diabetic shock!! Are you trying to play the exact opposite of Prof. Dum Dum's metal to sweep the orcs and Swedish trolls outta the timeslot?! :)
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:14am Seamus:

Seamus is Gaelic for James
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:15am minnesota jeff:

Heh, ok thats less strange. He's never gave me that answer, just sort of said its what his family always called him.
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:17am Seamus:

James, Seamus, Diego, Thiago, Joaquim, and Jacques are all forms of Jacob
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:18am minnesota jeff:

The WFMU comments section is always a wealth of information!
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:25am listener james from westwood:

Did someone call me?
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:27am minnesota jeff:

They were looking for James from Eastwood.
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:28am listener james from westwood:

James Eastwood's doing films now, but you can prob. get him thru his Twitter.
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:38am minnesota jeff:

I wish James Eastwood the best in his filmatic endeavors.
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:42am minnesota jeff:

This is a new Cassette, Joe?
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:43am Joe M.:

Yep, Jeff--I don't know who's responsible for it since it's just a homemade job, but it's got interesting stuff on it.
  Sun. 6/20/10 12:45am 3:

and thats a magic number
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:03am minnesota jeff:

Sounds of Westwing?
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:05am Rebecca in Hoboken:

Hi Joe! It's great that you're on when I'm still up.
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:05am Joe M.:

I think Martin Sheen is in there somewhere...
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:07am Joe M.:

Hey, Rebecca! It feels really weird so far! I hope I calm down soon. I feel like a puppy on a short leash.
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:08am 3:

unleash thyself, puppy!
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:09am minnesota jeff:

Joe, would you be the kind of a guy who would play a Who song at a request? If so, the song "Sister Disco" off of "Who are You" would be fantastic!
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:11am Joe M.:

I might play a request, Jeff, I might. I feel like I've played the Who pretty recently, though, so I might shy away..."How Many Friends" kills me.
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:13am minnesota jeff:

"How Many Friends" is heavy hitter for sure.
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:36am Chop Scott:

So great to hear you tonight, schedule shifting works in a better mind for a live listen!
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:39am Joe M.:

Thanks, Scott! I'm trying to get used to it. I feel really amped up--I'm so used to feeling so mellow! I hope this show doesn't sound like I need ritalin.
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:48am slugluv1313:

AAAGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! this Bobby Goldsboro song!!!!!!!!! OUCH!!!!! one of THEE most *painful* songs that epitomized growing up in the 1970s!!!!!!!!!
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:48am Joe M.:

I LOOOOOOOVVVE this song, ha ha!
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:50am slugluv1313:

well . . . one of *those* songs that you "love" AND "hate" at the same time . . makes you wanna HURL but you just cannot STOP LISTENING!!!!!!!!
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:51am minnesota jeff:

That Bobby Goldsboro songs makes me glad I didn't grow up in the 1970's then!
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:51am Joe M.:

I recently bought the LP and was discouraged that there was nothing else on it quite as memorable.
  Sun. 6/20/10 1:57am slugluv1313:

minnesota jeff, you have not lived until you have heard Bobby Goldsboro's "Watching Scotty Grow" . . . and if i remember correctly, years later he was arrested for child molestation (or similar), i think in Florida?
  Sun. 6/20/10 2:08am minnesota jeff:

Hmm, I can't find much about it on Google.
  Sun. 6/20/10 2:22am 3:

: )
  Sun. 6/20/10 2:22am minnesota jeff:

The album is called "Shit Happens!"???
  Sun. 6/20/10 2:23am Joe M.:

Yeah, it really is! I think Bear Family's staff were in a salty mood that day. It's a great country comp, very much like the recent "Troubled Troubadours."
  Sun. 6/20/10 2:29am emma b:

hehehe.... That Jimmie rogers song ALWAYS makes me cry too joe!
  Sun. 6/20/10 2:30am emma b:

  Sun. 6/20/10 2:32am Joe M.:

Thanks, Emma! Glad I'm not crying alone. Also glad I could help you with that pledge!
  Sun. 6/20/10 2:34am minnesota jeff:

I envision an elephant walking along to this song.
  Sun. 6/20/10 2:39am slugluv1313:
