fantastic stuff
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:10am emmagineering:

Sore Ga? My little part of Georgia is enjoying the (sadly now split-up) afrirampo fun here :)
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:10am Marmalade kitty:

Bjork singing with Sonic Youth would be interesting..Hmm!
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:12am Parq:

Greetings, Joe. Glad you'll be staying in this time slot.
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:14am Joe McG:

Hey, everybody! Thanks for checking in. Thanks, Parq. The gods of freeform looked down upon me and they smiled. Or at least they didn't smote me.
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:20am Marmalade kitty:

Hi everyone! I was listening to an evening show a couple of days ago, and there was a weather report intermission, flood warning.. It reminded me of the DJ voice in "The fog" John Carpenter horror!
Pretty scary!
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:25am Joe McG:

I wish we had "The Fog" soundtrack!
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:26am coalhard:

Joe is like Desparado--proabably has a guitar case full of records--and i'm like like the bartender that always gets it in the mug--or can is good too!
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:29am Joe McG:

You and me, around midnight/Someone's got to draw first blood.
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:32am Marmalade kitty:

I think Adrienne Barbeau was the DJ in The Fog, She's 65 and looking fabulous! John Carpenter is a talented chap indeed!
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:34am (¸.•´ (¸.•[]`•.¸.•´¯`•:

Meatloaf? Not palatable! Nope nope nope nope nope! ;) ;) ;)
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:36am coalhard:

  Sun. 10/3/10 12:39am Alex:

  Sun. 10/3/10 12:48am coalhard:

blummin onions served with a side of songland--love anything with gland in it
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:48am Joe McG:

Gland Parade with Daniel Blumin
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:57am D. Blumin:

Glad you didn't say Grand Sausage Parade, sir!
  Sun. 10/3/10 12:57am Joe McG:

Wish I'd thought of it!
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:00am coalhard:

CAPT. BLUMMIN and his first occifer KETCH UPPE
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:03am ?:

  Sun. 10/3/10 1:04am dan in Falls Church VA:

  Sun. 10/3/10 1:05am coalhard:

  Sun. 10/3/10 1:07am D. Blumin:

Dan, no dissin taken! My first Occifer really was called Ketch Uppe! But he's gone to a better place...
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:08am Marmalade kitty:

Eddie Lawrence Blackouts of 1984 Hilarious! Peter Sellers also cracks me up everytime!
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:08am dan in Falls Church VA:

ok. I won't kick coalhard's *ss then. ; )
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:09am coalhard:

  Sun. 10/3/10 1:09am dan in Falls Church VA:

actually coalhard's mah best fren'!
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:10am Sue:

Hey, Joe!!
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:12am Joe McG:

Hey, Sue! We're trying to help Daniel name his program.
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:13am coalhard:

HEY Dan--i'm low on blinker fluid--i'll pull over and you can check---SCREEEECH--AS MY TIRES PEEL OUT!!!HE HE HE--LOVE YA
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:13am D. Blumin:

Among other things...
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:16am D. Blumin:

I also need help deciding what sandwich to make once i'm across the river... Thx, Joe... but I think listeners should be helping you - how selfish of me!
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:19am coalhard:

  Sun. 10/3/10 1:28am D. Blumin:

Bill is doing his volunteer chore, JMC! He's responsible!
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:31am coalhard:

i remember steve--had a moustach that always rubbed mic?
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:32am Joe McG:

Ha ha! I know he has a moustache, but I didn't know about the mic rubbing thing. Maybe he'll do it next week!
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:42am coalhard:

lupica has a nose hair issue--but another time
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:42am dan in Falls Church VA:

Ouch! I just felt something, like -- coalhard runnin' over me!
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:43am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Joe! Made it to Single File again! Liking this Lost Generation a lot, Sound of Philadelphia?

@dan blumin: it depends on what materials you have, but you can't go wrong with ham and turkey with swiss on toast right now! And tomato if you got it!
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:44am coalhard:

get in the car dan--we got some surface to run
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:46am Derek B:

The tomato - nature's cruelest joke.
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:46am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt--Actually, I think the Lost Generation was a Chicago band. They're on a Chicago label and produced by Eugene Record from the Chi-Lites.
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:50am Matt from Springfield:

Chi-Lites, another great group with a very extensive catalogue.

Tomato + Pewter though, is man-made's cruelest joke. People thought is was the tomatoes that were poisoning them, not the acid separating the lead!
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:53am dan in Falls Church VA:

surface skurface, ooalhard! we're just the needle on joe's rekkid!
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:56am Derek B:

Wow, what a way to go, death by pewter!? Thanks for the head's up Matt.
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:58am Matt from Springfield:

@Derek: Glad to keep you informed--if Joe had this show in the 1600s, surely a pewter plate-PSA would have been relevant!
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:59am coalhard:

there is a famous ship stuck in ice near north pole--found frozen with all hands dead --autopsy revealed lead poisioning from cans of food
  Sun. 10/3/10 1:59am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, besides 2 A&Ms, all Single File songs were from different labels tonight!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:06am Derek B:

Matt, maybe they could have Paul Revere bringing the word?
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:08am Matt from Springfield:

@Derek: Crier-tainment, the only way to spread news at the time!
@coalhard: Wow, you know the name of that ship?
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:08am coalhard:

i'm dropping my anchor-will hurt in morning but worth every toe--nite all
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:10am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: Earth Wind & Fire are still touring, I saw them at Wolf Trap this summer, and "the Elements" still got it! Maurice and Philip Bailey can play and sing without a break!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:10am Derek B:

@Matt, haha I hear ye, here ye!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:10am Joe McG:

I'd love to see those guys. Do they still levitate and do the spinning piano?
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:11am coalhard:

matt--true story--look it up--saw on nova on pbs
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:12am Matt from Springfield:

Sadly Joe, that was when a young David Copperfield was their fx specialist, but they really do play and sing for hours with only a short intermission in between!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:13am (mta) Tony:

Thanx for the film turn-on, Joe; can't wait to view it when it arrives in the mail. I'll think of you during the screening.
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:13am Derek B:

Why didn't EW
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:17am Derek B:

Why didn't EWF use their real band name in the flick? Speaking of Slade, they've reformed and are putting out a Quiet Riot tribute album...
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:17am coalhard:

  Sun. 10/3/10 2:19am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt, didn't know about the DC connection. Amazing! No prob, Tony--you won't regret it, it's a lost gem. I'm not sure why they weren't just EWF in the movie, Derek--the band is sort of "acting" in it, and they're supposed to be unknowns. Actually, Maurice White isn't a bad actor at all in it, esp. when he calls Harvey Keitel a "jive turkey"!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:19am Julie:

Hey I'm planning to play EWF :P
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:20am Joe McG:

You go, Julie! Can't have too much EWF.
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:21am Julie:

this version of Never my Love is awesome
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:23am Derek B:

@Joe, good call, makes sense now that you say that, haha. Sorry, the first symptom of rampant insomnia is plot point blindness.
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:24am Matt from Springfield:

Hi, Julie! I first chatted with you on Irwin's show. Remember my idea for rum + cream soda? It's MAGNIFICENT with golden rum! The funny thing is, mixed with the flavors in silver rum, you can hardly taste the rum without adding a lot, so that would be a sneaky way to serve someone a spiked drink!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:25am Julie:

oh yeah I totally need to try that, Matt! Irwin so needs to have me on his show that loser
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:26am coalhard:

  Sun. 10/3/10 2:27am Julie:

wow I want what coalhard is drinking
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:28am Matt from Springfield:

Is it relatively easy to "crash" an 'FMU show if you are already in the station? Force Irwin to give you a promo!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:28am Julie:

I'd have to kick the teenage girls out of the studio first
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:29am Derek B:

@coalhard, so you're saying the light does stay on then - I knew it!! Ta for the confirmation ;)
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:30am Matt from Springfield:

@coalhard: It's also offensive of you to assume there are ppl youer than drunk on this list! I am, in fact...whoa! sobering up for the past...gulp, never mind!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:33am coalhard:

  Sun. 10/3/10 2:34am Julie:

that's good eatin'
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:35am coalhard:

  Sun. 10/3/10 2:35am Derek B:

FMU is alcohol for the ears, auralcohol you might say, but probably won't...
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:36am Julie:

I missed Have Love Will Travel is that the same song Olivia Newton-John did
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:37am Marmalade kitty:

Speaking of heavy metals in food can-age etc, can you believe they still put mercury alloys in fillings!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:37am Derek B:

Chuck Norris wears Coalhard pjamas ;)
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:38am Julie:

is a marmalade kitty sticky? I would think so
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:39am Matt from Springfield:

Awesome British Isles stuff this block, Joe!
@Derek: Amen!
@MStickyKitty: Really? I thought they removed even most metals from modern fillings, they still add mercury?!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:40am Joe McG:

Thanks, Matt!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:41am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: on your "Dark Night of the Soul", do you plan to span everything from St John of the Cross' Dark Night of the Soul to Douglas Adams' Dark Tea-Time of the Soul, thematicaly speaking? I would love that!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:42am Julie:

Matt I'll look into that
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:43am Julie:

I actually got the name from a Loreena McKennitt song before I'd ever heard that expression.
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:44am Derek B:

On the fillings/mercury tip, I think we need some dentistry journal to sink its teeth into this one. Ehem. Don't worry folks my iPod battery is under 20 percent.
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:45am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, I know of Loreena! Great Celtic stuff!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:45am Julie:

maybe someone needs to invent the I-filling. Fill your cavities, listen to music, make calls
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:45am Julie:

Matt I saw her Mask & Mirror tour she was AWESOME
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:48am coalhard:

  Sun. 10/3/10 2:50am dan in Falls Church VA:

there is a fly buzzin' around here somewhere, can hear it but can't see it, drivin' me crazy!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:50am Derek B:

@dan, that was funny, kudos.
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:51am dan in Falls Church VA:

my axons are axon questions, coalhard!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:52am Derek B:

@Julie, get cracking on the blueprints, stat!!

  Sun. 10/3/10 2:53am Marmalade kitty:

Julie, no I'm not sticky, cheeky!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:54am Julie:

Well I suppose if a Kitty was covered in marmalade said kitty would lick it all off so it would be clean
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:54am Julie:

You should see the schematics I have for Tuesday morning, it's insane
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:55am Julie:

Joe on the other hand is a fly by the seat of his pants kinda guy
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:56am coalhard:

  Sun. 10/3/10 2:56am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: slowly getting thrilled about your show! I promise to listen to Archives but since it runs till 6 am, I'll try to get up earlier and show some support while you're still on!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:56am Marmalade kitty:

julie poo
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:57am Matt from Springfield:

@coalhard: Ew! And LOL!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:57am Julie:

awww thanks Matt, that's one!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:57am Joe McG:

Oddly enough, I'm currently wearing a Yoko Ono shirt for "FLY" with a fly on the back, above the seat of my pants.
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:58am Julie:

and you didn't post a picture? Joe you tease
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:58am Matt from Springfield:

Wow Joe! Remember when Brian had the Yoko interview? Played the entire "Fly" track, among other things!

Great show! Hear ya next week!
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:59am Julie:

thanks Joe :)
  Sun. 10/3/10 2:59am Derek B:

Cheers Joe, nicely done as per!!!
