Listener comments!

  Sun. 10/17/10 12:09am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

hey joe, you know who this is?
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:11am Joe McG:

Sure, Bill, I know you! You stuff an envelope like a motherfucker!
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:12am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

where, oh great turntable king, are you taking us tonight
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:14am Joe McG:

To the moon, Bill, to the moon! Where else?
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:16am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

so, right now, are you working from the library or your own stash
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:17am olgu:

hi joe!!
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:17am Joe McG:

At this very moment, the Amazing WFMU Record Library New Bin. The previous two were mine, although the library probably has 'em. I didn't check. Hey, Olgu! How ARE you?
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:20am olgu:

good thanks! you? it's been a long(ish) time... i just re-heated the coffee i made in the morning - gross-. trying to work. this music is certainly helping.
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:20am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

you always wonder about that type of thing. i mean, every collector is a wanna be DJ, and so you think "what is THAT guy doing."
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:22am Joe McG:

Yes, Olgu, this is pretty good midnight work music, I think. Ooh, that coffee, though! Ugh! Bill, the fact is that I don't really know what I'm doing at all. Just having fun!
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:24am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

right, but there is always a mystique to it. you can have a billion fucking albums but you always wonder what the other guy has that you missed
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:25am olgu:

It's actually a lot less worse than how it sounds! See you at the record fair I hope?
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:26am Joe McG:

I see what you mean, Bill. I think I've given up on that. People around here just have way too much I've missed.
I'll definitely see you at the Record Fair, Olgu--I'm at the swag table all day Friday and Saturday. Please stop by before/after your volunteer shift, if you're doing one!
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:31am olgu:

Doing two: both Saturday and Sunday. I'll probably be hanging around there rest of the time and trying not to get overwhelmed :)
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:32am david in denver:

i miss the musty smell of old vinyl. or does vinyl reek?
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:32am Joe McG:

Oh good. I'll be selling records on Sunday, so you can stop by then, too. I hope to have many smelly vinyl records there. You should fly out, David!
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:35am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

if you have a copy of that maricone/brando thing you played a few weeks ago, bring it. i'll buy it
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:41am Joe McG:

I wish I did, Bill! Man, that's amazing stuff. I bet someone there has it, though!
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:43am david in denver:

kiss kiss kiss me ya fool!
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:44am Joe McG:

You're comin' on pretty strong there, DinD!
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:44am Sue:

Hey, Joe! How's it going? I see we're all talking about the ol' Record Fair around here
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:45am david in denver:

strong is my middle name
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:47am Joe McG:

Hey, Sue! How are YOU? Yes, the Record Fair is beginning to waft through the breeze...I feel it coming....
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:47am david in denver:

davy watts?
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:49am Joe McG:

He'll be there, I'm sure.
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:51am david in denver:

ruth gordan?
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:52am Joe McG:

She'll be bringing Harold, I hope.
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:53am Sue:

I'm doin ok. Looking forward to the fair... i'll be over my strep throat by then!
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:55am Joe McG:

Yay! Spotty throat begone!
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:57am david in denver:

bring on the nubiles!
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:57am Sue:

That's what I say... then I can properly kiss you when I see you at the fair :) isn't there a Joe McGasko kissing booth or something like that? tee hee...
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:58am Sue:

Talk about comin' on strong, huh?
  Sun. 10/17/10 12:59am Joe McG:

We had a petting zoo last year. I think if I had a kissing booth, I wouldn't make any money! I'm on the radio for a reason!
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:00am Sue:

Oh, please,... you and your modesty. It's part of your charm though
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:00am david in denver:

  Sun. 10/17/10 1:01am Sue:

Hey, there ya go...!
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:02am Sue:

  Sun. 10/17/10 1:02am david in denver:

  Sun. 10/17/10 1:06am david in denver:

sue do you have a monkey paw?
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:08am Zach:

The busses aren't free anymore. The trains are called "light rail" something between a tram and a subway-sized train.

Of course, real Portlanders ride bikes.
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:08am Zach:

And the streetcar doesn't go where anyone wants it to go.
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:09am coalhard:

i think sue is located in tuesday--nice town --they keep her there for our saftey
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:10am Zach:

You probably ate at Pok Pok (http://www.pokpokpdx.com/), which is the best goddamn Thai place in the USA. Most Thai out here is same as anywhere else.
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:11am Chris in Thailand:

Pronounced Eee-sahn. It's the northeastern part of Thailand.
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:12am david in denver:

i thought it was eygpt
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:12am Sue:

i'm here, in jersey
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:13am Sue:

  Sun. 10/17/10 1:14am david in denver:

  Sun. 10/17/10 1:17am david in denver:

  Sun. 10/17/10 1:19am Joe McG:

  Sun. 10/17/10 1:24am Sue:

  Sun. 10/17/10 1:25am Joe McG:

If you love me after BOC album tracks, I know I can't go wrong.
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:26am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

  Sun. 10/17/10 1:27am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

ohh.........nodding off due to the hour, not the music or the company
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:30am osvi:

Singles Going Steady rules.
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:33am Joe McG:

Hope that Johnny Otis record woke you up, Bill!
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:34am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

add some shuggie and it may do the tricjk
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:37am pingy:

and to think, the worst Hudson Bros is better than any ...(fill in the blank)...
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:40am Joe McG:

You took the words (right out of my mouth), Pingy.
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:41am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Joe! I nodded off for a while there, but woke up just in time for Single File! But not the whole station's going to Single File for a week--we won!

Expect to see all the songs marching in a row, chanting one of 'FMUs slogans ("WFMU--sometimes we rock your world, other times we destabilize your equilibrium")
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:41am david in denver:

do 45's skip less than 33's?
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:42am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt, glad you're up for the singles! You know, David, I think they do! Although the other side of my Johnny Otis 45 skips. Damn it!
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:44am Sue:

thanks for playing loretta!! i thought that was her!
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:45am Joe McG:

You bet, Sue! Can't do better than Loretter.
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:47am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, The Nighthawks are from DC--make sure you mention that on the break!

Fancy is British, as I figured, and actually have an extensive discog. And I'm such a Sugarloaf fan I actually know they're from Colorado w/o even looking them up!
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:49am pingy:

whoa, Sugarloaf! I'm back at summer camp!
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:50am Matt from Springfield:

@Sue: For some reason I thought "Your Squaw" was written by another well-known songwriter (like Shel Silverstein, who wrote other Loretta songs) but it turns out good ol' Loretter wrote that one herself!
@Joe: Organ solo!
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:50am Joe McG:

SERIOUS organ solo.
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:52am pingy:

Gasp! One of my favorite songs, evah!!
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:53am Joe McG:

Wish I could show you my picture disc version of this! It's cute.
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:54am Sue:

Go Loretta! Hey, Joe, you wouldn't have any Kay Adams in that box, would ya?
  Sun. 10/17/10 1:55am Sue:

  Sun. 10/17/10 1:59am pingy:

  Sun. 10/17/10 2:00am Matt from Springfield:

  Sun. 10/17/10 2:15am Matt from Springfield:

  Sun. 10/17/10 2:15am pingy:

just a correction...yeesh
  Sun. 10/17/10 2:18am coalhard:

this is like a dressing room--we get to try on songs--they usually fit right over our pajamas
  Sun. 10/17/10 2:19am Joe McG:

I love that, coalhard. Some'll be tight and some baggy, but you can always take 'em right off if they bind.
  Sun. 10/17/10 2:25am coalhard:

no--that's chatroulette your thinking about --kidders!!
  Sun. 10/17/10 2:28am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

so let me ask--have you listened to all these albums your drawing from
  Sun. 10/17/10 2:29am Joe McG:

No, Bill, not all. The new material I've played tonight I listened to for the first time before the program, unless of course I knew it already, which is often the case with the reissues I play. Things that aren't marked new are familiar old friends.
  Sun. 10/17/10 2:33am Matt from Springfield:

Nick Cave, shoulda figured!
  Sun. 10/17/10 2:42am coalhard:

  Sun. 10/17/10 2:59am Matt from Springfield:
