Listener comments!

  Sun. 1/2/11 12:28am coalhard:

all is clear along the watch tower of my mind--where brain farts are a good thing--i just made that up ???
  Sun. 1/2/11 12:30am Joe McG:

There's a new year here. Somebody clean it up.
  Sun. 1/2/11 12:42am fleep:

The new year will be asking for the car keys before you know it.
  Sun. 1/2/11 12:43am Joe McG:

Better get this new year into a good school before it's too late.
  Sun. 1/2/11 12:54am Deeeeeeeeeeeee:

I'll take DJ's over robots any day. You've saved my music-loving soul.
  Sun. 1/2/11 12:57am Joe McG:

Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! We loves you.
  Sun. 1/2/11 12:58am Deeeeeeeeeeeee:

And I wub yous :D
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:05am D. Blumin:

Who you callin b-gHEAD?
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:07am Joe McG:

Oops, did I say that on the radio?
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:07am coalhard:

good luck to Obama this year--the man is getting grey headed-but is ok-- morgan freeman got better with age too
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:09am Matt from Springfield:

Happy New Year Joe!
The Cookies! But how about Cookie and the Cupcakes, you get better sweets value per song...
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:10am Joe McG:

Happy New Year, Matt! I like cupcakes.
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:11am Julie:

Happy New Year, Joe!
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:12am Joe McG:

Happy happy, Julie! It's now 11 after 20.
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:13am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Julie!
Did you have a great New Year? I'm looking forward to another year of "binary" dates -- 1/1/11, 1/10/11, 1/11/11, and so forth.
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:15am Matt from Springfield:

I wished my Mom a happy 1:11 on 1:11 1/1/11! And don't forget that there's still October and November this year as well! To think that 12/12/12 will be the last same month-day-time for a while.
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:18am Matt from Springfield:

I had too many sweets this Christmas, you're just sending us into sugar shock now, Joe!
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:27am Joe McG:

I was going to play "Sugar, Sugar," but that might send you into sugar sugar shock.
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:29am Matt from Springfield:

How SWEET of you Joe. Sugar sugar honey honey shock is even more hazardous, particularly if you're in the sugar shack.
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:34am Joe McG:

Matt, you're a real fireball!
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:37am Matt from Springfield:

I'm on fire!
And brown, you can stick around!
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:38am Joe McG:

And if you're white, it's alright!
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:42am coalhard:

i'm white--but when power goes off my ass gets cold too
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:44am coalhard:

i lost power for a few minutes--ok now
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:46am Matt from Springfield:

Hi CH! Electrical power to the people! We're all the same, just about one hour of heat is the only thing separating us all from having a cold ass!
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:47am Matt from Springfield:

Whew! What a "smashing" ending on the Avengers 45!
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:50am Joe McG:

I confess I pumped up the volume a bit.
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:55am Matt from Springfield:

No regrets, I loved it! After all, a DJ is much more than a playlist and tracks--if you feel mixing it up heightens the listening experience, GO FOR IT! If a record is locked in a skip but it sounds kind of cool, KEEP IT GOING!
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:56am Joe McG:

Like the distortion on this 45, for example!
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:58am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, you're right! Nice distortin' there!

The logical extension of that philosophy at this station would probably be Kenny G--but you gotta admit People Like Us does a fantastic job selectively mixing existing sounds for our listening pleasure!
  Sun. 1/2/11 1:59am Joe McG:

Kenny G and PLU are geniuses. I bow before them.
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:01am Matt from Springfield:

Man, DJs at 'FMU??!! I'd take posters of all you up there, and place them on the ceiling above my bed, so I can bow to you whenever I get up :)
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:01am Matt from Springfield:

Sound wound up!
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:07am Matt from Springfield:

Yeah! The Joe McG and Dan Blumin show!
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:13am Matt from Springfield:

I always say it as "Nuh-Deer".
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:13am dnr:

  Sun. 1/2/11 2:14am D. Blumin:

  Sun. 1/2/11 2:15am Matt from Springfield:

The Arab astronomers who developed the word probably would say it as "Naeh-Deer".
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:16am coalhard:

ford pinto
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:16am Joe D.:

too bad they hated our freedom.

great show McG - cheers
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:17am coalhard:

meant corvair'der
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:17am Joe D.:

and I like late period, more conventional Clear Spot Beefheart more than Trout Mask Replica Beefheart. This is an obvious product of my widely known bad taste.
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:17am Matt from Springfield:

This is why they developed IPA symbols -- I didn't mean it as Nuuuuuh-Deer, more like Näh-Deer, to use the German a-umlaut. But NO ONE knows how to use the DAMN symbols!
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:18am Matt from Springfield:

@CH: Unsafe at EVERY speed, to include 0.0 mph.
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:22am Joe McG:

Hey, Joe, don't worry, I think "TMR" is my least favorite CB album. Awaiting hecklers.
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:27am Joe McG:

Matt, you're right, let's talk about a schwa. Yikes!
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:28am coalhard:

morgan freeman has freckles--but i'm without heckles
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:29am Joe McG:

I sense a theme tonight, Coalhard. Pretty soon you're going to be asking to see Miss Daisy.
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:38am Matt from Springfield:

Very powerful vocal, a very American telling of "Matty Groves".

Is "Anti- " the label name? Love it!
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:40am Joe McG:

  Sun. 1/2/11 2:45am Julie:

Heya Matt Happy New Year! I am personally looking forward to 11-11-11
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:47am Julie:

Boy did I miss a whole lot of cookies I hope you boys saved me some
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:48am Matt from Springfield:

Heya Julie! I'm enjoying the triple dates that come with the beginning of a century.

Psst--check your Internet Options, there's plenty of cookies in there!
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:49am Matt from Springfield:

Van's the Man!
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:51am Julie:

I don't LIKE those kind of cookies..they are like the kind grandma makes that have unidentifiable pieces of fruit taking up most of the middle
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:51am Matt from Springfield:

I just got a 666 for the math answer (that's usually a Brian Turner answer!) And I got a 888 earlier tonight--something with triple numbers is electric tonight!
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:52am Kenzo:

Flashback: http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/30665
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:53am Joe McG:

Bryce gets the best numbers.
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:53am Julie:

Oooh a rare Kenzo sighting. Joe you have the bestest listners
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:54am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Do you have peanut butter cookies with a Hershey Kiss in the center at Xmas time? That was my fav this year, as well as rolled crescent cookies with "Povitiza" walnut filling wrapped within them (Slovenian tradition! Yum!)
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:55am Julie:

Oh man that sounds really good. No we didn't. We didn't even have sugar cookies with red sprinkles. My family is LAME
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:55am Julie:

I particularly enjoy the reference on that link to the "bryce premium"
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:56am Matt from Springfield:

@Kenzo: http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/30821
It's a "fake" April Fool's playlist, but it's even better!
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:57am Kenzo:

Ah, makes the Unicode support worthwhile. Hi Joe(s)!
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:58am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: I heard a recent Dusty Show -- don't keep your comments under pressure, because apparently, they're EXPLODING! See, good idea to keep the comments open!
  Sun. 1/2/11 2:59am Julie:

thanks Matt
  Sun. 1/2/11 3:00am Matt from Springfield:

Wonderful show--have a great 2011 everyone!
Have fun @ the party Joe, Dan, Julie!
  Sun. 1/2/11 4:01pm AJ:

Thx for playing 'I Never Dreamed', one of my alltime faves!
