Listener comments!

  Sun. 1/23/11 12:10am Matt from Springfield:

Hey Joe!

Um, is there a...(ahem) Lady, in the studio with you?
  Sun. 1/23/11 12:11am Joe McG:

No, just Daniel. That's life!
  Sun. 1/23/11 12:13am Matt from Springfield:

If I had to ask...
An ironic theme song to the "Joe and Dan Blumin Show", perhaps? I'm used to your usual post-SF bed music when you and Dan talk, but you need a killer intro as well!
  Sun. 1/23/11 12:15am ?:

Bed music? This IS bed music, Matt!
  Sun. 1/23/11 12:17am Matt from Springfield:

Joe's great on bed music, whether the "embedded" background kind, music to sleep to, music to listen to awake in bed, music for taking (ahem) someone else to bed with! Not to mention a cover of Lou Red's "The Bed", Joe's got it down!
  Sun. 1/23/11 12:20am Joe McG:

I'm glad you didn't say I got it up!
  Sun. 1/23/11 12:23am Matt from Springfield:

And LOL!
  Sun. 1/23/11 12:24am julieta:

The Counts: Impressive ! awesome . incredible music tonight Joe !!!
  Sun. 1/23/11 12:25am Joe McG:

Thanks, Julieta! Welcome to the warm.
  Sun. 1/23/11 12:29am Matt from Springfield:

Slow jams, all right! And don't forget your all Stax/60s soul records show you said you wanted to do!
  Sun. 1/23/11 12:39am Joe McG:

Oh, Matt, so many records, so little time!
  Sun. 1/23/11 12:45am W:

Loving the uptempo, perfect for a late night cleaning jag. And these are choice cuts.
  Sun. 1/23/11 12:46am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: As long as you plan individual sets out, you can fit any number of themes in. Slow jams before, now we're enjoying your Bollywood disco appreciation set!
  Sun. 1/23/11 12:48am coalhard:

exciting news out that cold fusion works!--cheap energy--no radiation-no more coal mines-ut oh-----c'est la vie
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:00am Matt from Springfield:

Use the Tuvans to help you find your center.
Now let us meditate...
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:11am Matt from Springfield:

Like a slow, French "Things We Said Today", non?
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:17am coalhard:

  Sun. 1/23/11 1:35am bill the peg leg envelope stuffer motherfucker:

did the kirchen just come out;. John allen played it too
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:36am Joe McG:

Hey, guys! Sorry, I checked out there for a moment...glad you're with me!
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:36am coalhard:

the blacksmith blues--reminds me of jetsons song a bit?
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:36am Joe McG:

Hey, Bill! Yep, that Kirchen just came out. I think you'll be hearing it a lot on FMU. Yeah, Coalhard, they used that song in a LOT of cartoons.
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:47am julieta:

A space-spycothopic version of Proud Mary . Tasty
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:48am Joe McG:

Love your description. If I could only say it!
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:51am coalhard:

this show and people here are so fun!! LOVE IT!
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:52am Matt from Springfield:

Yes, EARLY Cowsills! Does the jacket show how many siblings were in the band at that point?
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:52am julieta:

Sorry ! psychotropic. cheers !
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:53am Joe McG:

No prob, Julieta--I can't say that either! Hey, Matt, this was one of the early Philips singles. As far as I know, they didn't have picture sleeves, just company ones. Maybe I'm wrong though?
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:55am Matt from Springfield:

@julieta: I liked your mutation of psychotropic; perhaps you could coin the word "sycothopic" for an advanced state of psychotropic experience--and when something is secretly sycothopic, it would be "SPYcothopic"!
  Sun. 1/23/11 1:59am Matt from Springfield:

It felt AWESOME! Always a pleasure with Single File!
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:03am W:

Dear Joe

You mean "soporific," not "soapoforic."

  Sun. 1/23/11 2:05am coalhard:

wanna see something funny--then come back--go videosift.com--type in homer thompson
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:11am Joe McG:

I'm feeling very psychopathioscopic!
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:13am coalhard:

joe-- do you remember a show on tv called NIGHT FLYTE or something like that?
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:13am Matt from Springfield:

What a slick, "cool" (in a old-school bachelor pad sense) rendition of "Hare Krishna"!

@coalhard: Simpsons' Homer Thompson routine--very funny indeed.
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:13am Joe McG:

Very well, CH. It was called "Night Flight" and it was on the USA Network for a number of years.
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:15am coalhard:

  Sun. 1/23/11 2:18am Matt from Springfield:

Monkees Demos? Was this a Nilsson song originally written for the Monkees, or did Nilsson write this for the Monkees?
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:20am Joe McG:

Yeah, Matt, he wrote a bunch of songs for the Monkees, most famously "Cuddly Toy." This was one of the ones they didn't record. Too Dylan-y? Too protest-y?
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:24am Matt from Springfield:

Interesting. A lot of Nilsson songs were kinda mainstream pop rock, but it's a shame his more Dylan-y, protest-y compositions aren't heard more often, they can be quite great.

I think you're giving a demo of how to do an all-demo set!
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:25am Joe McG:

Ha ha! All demo show, in the future!
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:26am coalhard:

ha space is curved!
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:26am Matt from Springfield:

Oops, forgot the Don Kirshner was part of this set too!

Ha ha! In the meantime we'll just harass you with ALL the possible ideas for good future shows! Gather ye records while ye may!
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:28am Matt from Springfield:

I say Joe, don't you feel Sergio Mendes/Brasil '66 should have a whole show of their rarities? Mwahahahahaha!
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:28am Joe McG:

On it!
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:34am Matt from Springfield:

Ah, Vanguard, why should I be surprised!
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:40am coalhard:

this show about to be executed in about 20 mins--where is jesse ventura when you need him?
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:41am Joe McG:

They just shaved the back of my neck and measured me for a wooden coat.
  Sun. 1/23/11 2:56am W:

Good choice to go with the Western African stuff. I was sending you brain waves to make you pick that one.
  Sun. 1/23/11 3:00am Matt from Springfield:

Well, it's been a fun night! In case this song isn't finished, thanks Joe, and have a great night! See you next week everyone (or sooner)!
  Sun. 1/23/11 3:00am Joe McG:

Thanks, Matt! Take care, everybody! Have a good Sunday!
