Listener comments!

  Sun. 8/15/10 12:07am Sue:

Joe!!! How are you? Nice first song!
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:08am Nick Name:

hello Joe - was the intro what the Undertaker hears in his mind?
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:10am Joe McG:

Hey, Sue! Welcome! Hey, Nick! Yes, I think the Undertaker, before he went to meet Satan, was singing that very number.
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:13am Ike:

*Spectacularly* nice first song. Yr show doesn't always resonate w/my wonky brainwave frequencies but this Krokodil does. Plus yr "theme" is even better when I Yerterb the old video clip that goes along w/it. I loved those weird yip-yip muppets when I was four.
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:15am Sue:

How is it in Jersey City this fine evening? and yes, i agree with Ike. i loved those purple monsters from Sesame Street too :)
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:15am Joe McG:

Hey, Ike. Nice to see you around. Glad you dug the Krok.
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:16am Joe McG:

Well, Sue, let me tell you: These people have just run amok around here. It's wild, let me tell you.
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:17am D. Blumin:

Don't call me these people, Joe McGasko! I can hear you!
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:17am Sue:

Sounds it! Daniel was calling for your help toward the end of his show! It's madness over there!! :)
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:17am Joe McG:

  Sun. 8/15/10 12:17am Sue:

hey! and he's still there!!!
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:18am Sue:

you guys need to go on air together. you're a great duo
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:20am Joe McG:

I'll see if I can pull him in here during the first mic break, the bastid.
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:23am Sue:

tee hee... of course i don't mind hearing your lovely voice on your own, but a little back-and-forth is always nice too
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:24am Joe McG:

Oh, shucks, Sue, I always like a little back and forth.
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:24am D. Blumin:

Sue meant to say - "... a little back-and-forth is always nice too," ya bastid -Editor
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:25am Nick Name:

nice elastic bass resonating in my headphones right now!
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:26am Joe McG:

Had to get some "Stone Cold" Billy Green on for you, Nick.
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:27am Sue:

hahaha!...yes, exactly Mr. Blumin. i do not mind the back-and-forth... especially when Joe McGasko's involved
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:28am Sue:

that sounded dirty, huh? :/
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:29am Nick Name:

yeh,"here come the pigs" tune....as mentioned....fucked up!
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:29am texas scott:

He played Abbass Mehrpouya,Sue.
Back and forth be damned!
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:30am Sue:

lol!! texas scott...
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:35am cheri:

g'morning joe---how's your summer going so far??
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:38am Sue:

i love you guys together!
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:40am cheri:

joe--do you have any riaa tunes tonite?
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:42am Nick Name:

no bikers last night at screening - no pissing,arson, slashing tires ,
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:49am Joe McG:

Hey, Cheri! Summer has been hot, but today was de-lightful. Hope you're having a good one! What RIAA tune did you have in mind?
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:50am Joe McG:

Hope you guys were able to put up with the banter...Nick is right by the way, no pissing or slashing or arson at Lincoln Center last night. Oh well!
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:53am D. Blumin:

I put up with it just fine, McGasko!
  Sun. 8/15/10 12:56am Joe McG:

I wasn't worrying about you, Blumin!
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:19am Sue:

you guys are always great
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:22am Joe McG:

How are YOU doing tonight, Sue?
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:30am Sue:

not too bad... sleep pattern is all messed up. passed out early this afternoon so now i'm up. and just in time to catch your tunes!
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:33am Joe McG:

Hooray! Glad to be the beneficiary of your botched up sleep patterns!
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:35am Sue:

aw :) i don't see you as being the beneficiary here... i'm the one lucking out! and by the way, this track is awesome! like most of the music you play, i also have not heard this one before. was it a hit back in the day?
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:39am Joe McG:

Which track, Sue?
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:40am Sue:

you really pick these randomly? it just does not seem so... so far these tracks actually seem to flow together pretty well... and actually, i'll wait for you to announce these. i'm sure these are popular tracks, i don't wanna embarrass myself
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:42am Joe McG:

I hope they're not TOO popular. I'm on WFMU!
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:42am Sue:

i have a pretty warped idea of what's popular and not
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:43am Sue:

well, in that case, i meant the first track you played, your favorite. hey, you're playing nick lowe!!!i know this song! yay!
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:50am Joe McG:

Oh, the Rotary Connection! It was sort of a minor hit; the actual hit was the flipside, which was a version of "Ruby Tuesday." I have to play that one of these days, too. But their version of "Soul Man" just slays me.
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:51am Sue:

yeah, you know, i didn't even realize it was Soul Man until i saw the title on the playlist. oops. crazy version! real nice intro though. i'm all about the intros! lovin' your single file by the way..
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:55am Joe McG:

Thank ye, Sue, you're such a nice commenter!
  Sun. 8/15/10 1:56am Sue:

only for cool DJ's :)
  Sun. 8/15/10 2:04am D. Blumin:

Cool DJ"s who play provocative one note piano solos!
Stand your hairs up, McGasko! I missed my last bus...
Where was the PSA about that???
  Sun. 8/15/10 2:13am Joe McG:

Damn! I gotta do the LAST BUS P.S.A. next week!
  Sun. 8/15/10 2:26am Nick Name:

great tune!
  Sun. 8/15/10 2:27am Joe McG:

You still there, Nick? Wow, I thought I lost you with all the Free Design stuff.
  Sun. 8/15/10 2:29am D. Blumin:

Baltimore! What a tasty morsel!
Good night, McGasko - happy Sunday!
  Sun. 8/15/10 2:30am Joe McG:

Have a great night, Blumin! The management thanks you for your support.
  Sun. 8/15/10 2:55am Joe McG:
