  Sun. 12/5/10 12:11am Joe McG:

Why, thank you, Cheri P, that's awful nice of you. I wish you the same.
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:22am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

hey joe, did you go to that record show today
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:24am Joe McG:

Hey, Bill! No, I didn't make it, but WFMU had a strong contingent there, from what I understand. How was it?
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:26am fleep:

They say the tabla player gets all the chicks.
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:28am Joe McG:

Not if there's a flute player around.
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:32am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

good but I learned something: you can;t just drive to Jersey city and "Figure out where you are going when you get there.' FUCK was I lost
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:32am coalhard:

  Sun. 12/5/10 12:33am Joe McG:

Don't feel bad, Bill, I'm here all the time and I get lost. The roads around here are...uh...enigmatic.
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:34am Joe McG:

Coalhard, are you soul mining from Egypt this evening?
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:36am coalhard:

  Sun. 12/5/10 12:36am Conseula:

  Sun. 12/5/10 12:38am Joe McG:

I want to get me one of these crazy talking drums.
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:39am fleep:

Got some snakes whats need charmin. I hear ya.
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:44am juliette:

lovely tape !
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:46am coalhard:

Joe is like a sharmin--just hope i don't squeeze him too much-will comment more later
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:50am Joe McG:

If you squeeze me too hard my left eye pops out and you have to get the sewing kit.
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:54am coalhard:

i am making sign for launch
  Sun. 12/5/10 12:54am listener james from westwood:

Ahhhh, nice to hear the proper Deutsch version of this tune.
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:01am baron oshima:

Orange Juice is all over the dial recently....
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:05am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

there is no logic to the city whatsoever. NONE I was lucky enough to find two very nice cops and once they figured out I was handicapped and not drunk they actually gave me an escort to the show
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:07am Joe McG:

JC's finest! I feel warmer now, Bill.
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:10am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

the show was good but most of the dealers there were at the record fair so i was looting through a lot of stashes I did a month and a half ago
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:13am Joe McG:

Ah, yes, the Record Deal Repeat Offender Effect.
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:15am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

those shows are good if you go into them with no agenda and find random shit you would never look for, but in the internet era they are almost an anacronism
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:18am Joe McG:

Random shit is what I live for, Bill! Without happy accidents life is no fun.
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:21am baron oshima:

That ShangriLas song is CREEPY...
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:22am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

its humbling too: you think you (i mean universal you, not mcgasko you) think you know your music and have the best library on the east coast and then you walk in and find out you don't know ten percent of what is out there
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:22am coalhard:

i put a stuffed parrot on my sholder once turned out to be a stuffed anachronism
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:24am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

i put a real parrot there once and it shit all over my tie
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:26am coalhard:

oh! a wall street pirate---excuse me
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:27am Joe McG:

The Shangs were good at creepy.
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:27am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

  Sun. 12/5/10 1:29am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

  Sun. 12/5/10 1:34am coalhard:

the music tonite is like quicksand before you know it your up to your ears in puddle of sound
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:37am Joe McG:

"Puddle of Sound." The new title for the show.
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:38am coalhard:

  Sun. 12/5/10 1:39am Vic Perry:

and then we can nah nah nah nah.....oh yeeeahh.. I heard this as a child and then it went far far away as if it had never been on the radio, I spent years tracking it down and was so thrilled to find it again.... What a weird, weird song. Here's to Oompah country softcore euro rock!
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:42am Joe McG:

You said it, Vic!
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:51am fleep:

The best part of many 45s is knowing they won't go on for very long. Like now.
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:53am Joe McG:

Ha ha. Everybody hates Romeo and Juliet.
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:54am coalhard:

i feel a neil young song comming--or may be just gas
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:55am Joe McG:

Funny, I almost brought my 45 of "Comes a Time" with me. Next week!
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:56am Vic Perry:

when you were young and on your own, how did it feel to be gene pitney? I was always thinking of games that I was playing, trying to sing liberty valence.
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:58am Joe McG:

I think Coalhard shot Liberty Valence.
  Sun. 12/5/10 1:58am coalhard:

glad i'm not the only drunk on here?
  Sun. 12/5/10 2:00am Joe McG:

So high you could drown? In the puddle of sound?
  Sun. 12/5/10 2:03am Vic Perry:

Oops It's Valance like Jack Palance, who sang too. See? It's all connected now. Only love can break a/ & or/ your or Gene Pitney's or Neil Young's heart.
  Sun. 12/5/10 2:03am upper east jeff:

  Sun. 12/5/10 2:04am coalhard:

  Sun. 12/5/10 2:17am coalhard:

good song to play whe ken lifts off "we are climbing"
  Sun. 12/5/10 2:18am Joe McG:

When you are right, you are SO right.
  Sun. 12/5/10 2:19am fleep:

and Goin Down To The River depending on where he lands
  Sun. 12/5/10 2:20am coalhard:

  Sun. 12/5/10 2:27am coalhard:

i predict ken will hit an ice burg--cause it to sink-plunge earth into ice age not stirred!!
  Sun. 12/5/10 2:29am Joe McG:

I hope he doesn't hit anything except fluffy clouds.
  Sun. 12/5/10 2:31am fleep:

And he lands safely on Dolly Parton
  Sun. 12/5/10 2:32am coalhard:

that's what they said when lindy lifted off --we see how that turned out--idiot landed in FRANCE
  Sun. 12/5/10 2:36am Joe McG:

I seem to think that anyone who landed on Dolly Parton could coount themselves among the blessed. And I'll say no more about that.
  Sun. 12/5/10 2:37am Joe McG:

That was a fucking beautiful steel guitar solo, if you'll pardon my language. Bring it, Willie.
  Sun. 12/5/10 2:40am coalhard:

  Sun. 12/5/10 2:47am coalhard:

Hey, Looms!
  Sun. 12/5/10 2:58am fleep:
