  Sun. 2/6/11 12:36am coalhard:

  Sun. 2/6/11 12:39am Joe McG:

Is that THE Trent? Hey, Coalhard!
  Sun. 2/6/11 12:40am Ike:

Just got home, switched on the stereo, heard that killer Faust track, and figured that somebody must be filling in for you, Joe. Didn't sound very Joe-esque. :) Are you not yourself tonight?
  Sun. 2/6/11 12:41am Joe McG:

Ike, I'm somebody different every week.
  Sun. 2/6/11 12:41am trent:

  Sun. 2/6/11 12:42am Joe McG:

  Sun. 2/6/11 12:43am cheri:

  Sun. 2/6/11 12:47am Joe McG:

I think it means he's perfectly delighted with everything in the whole world.
  Sun. 2/6/11 12:47am Ike:

I think that's the first non-comma-abusing or non-ellipsis-abusing post "Cheri" has ever posted. Congrats, dude.
  Sun. 2/6/11 12:48am Joe McG:

Ike is our local punctuation police.
  Sun. 2/6/11 12:49am cheri:

ike I'M A WOMAN!!!
  Sun. 2/6/11 12:51am Ike:

That's nice.
  Sun. 2/6/11 12:53am Joe McG:

  Sun. 2/6/11 12:55am Joe McG:

Time will tell everything.
  Sun. 2/6/11 12:59am cheri:

joe i think the cake is the best super female group of the late 60s. would you agree?
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:01am Joe McG:

Well, I like 'em a lot, but there's some stiff competition. She is pretty amazing, too, for example.
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:04am Matt from Springfield:

The form is free, with Joe McG! How's ya doin' to-nite?!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:05am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt! You're where it's at!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:06am Matt from Springfield:

Walked in on Bobby Womack, anywhere that's playing him is where it's at! And this Fatback Band is new to me, but VERY cool.
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:06am Joe McG:

Man, this music makes me feel ALIVE.
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:10am Matt from Springfield:

"Like that?"
Hell yeah!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:13am cheri:

i was wondering joe maybe later tonight you could give me a shout out or play a tune for me? cause i'll be listening,,ty joe
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:16am Matt from Springfield:

Jamming version of Lay Lady Lay--dance everyone, dance!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:17am Joe McG:

I sure am! Ask Blumin!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:20am coalhard:

joe is like MAYHEM--pushes play button and we go head long into well lit streets with the music blastin --then from out of nowhere comes a truck load of cd's--there is a collision-all survive but may take time to clear all of the cd's off joe's desk!!!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:22am cheri:

i have to split i don't want to overstay my welcome darn!!! i was having soo much fun
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:23am Joe McG:

Pleasant dreams, Cheri Pi!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:37am Matt from Springfield:

I'm glad! I'm glad!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:38am Joe McG:

Are you mad as hell??
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:42am coalhard:

neat video at ---my vidster.com--called depression and economic collapse--MUST SEE!!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:43am Matt from Springfield:

I'm as glad as Hell for this Chairmen of the Board--didn't know they did such a political, and funky piece!
But no, I guess it's easier for commercial radio to just play something peppy, like "Gimme Just A Little More Time". That's why we have, that's why we need WFMU!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:44am Joe McG:

TWO atom bomb blasts! How can you top that?
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:45am Matt from Springfield:

Thank you thank you thank you for the original, über-depressing lyrics version of the theme song! Imagine if every episode of the TV show began with this!

Btw, "The Mash" is a session group of John Bahler, Tom Bahler, Ron Hicklin, and Ian Freeman-Smith (The Ron Hicklin Singers). It was written by Johnny Mandel...and the director's 16 year old son, Mike Altman.
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:46am Joe McG:

Matt, you are a font of wisdom! Love it.
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:46am Matt from Springfield:

Robert Altman claimed that his song earned more in royalties from that song, than he made during the original theatrical run of M*A*S*H!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:47am coalhard:

thanks matt for that--wow
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:47am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe,CH: Aw, thanks! I was prepared--months ago I was finally updating the iTunes "tag" for that MP3 I'd had for a long time, and I made sure to save that info in the "comments" ;)
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:53am coalhard:

this show has more experts than bill maher show--plus good music!!!!!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:54am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, Joe:

There's a whole history to this group, "most famously known as the real singers behind the background vocals on The Partridge Family recordings." !!!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:54am Joe McG:

The Partridge Seal of Approval. I heartily approve!
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:55am Matt from Springfield:

I wonder who made this edit:
"Sally Stevens, soprano who every child born in the 50's and 60's knows as part of the ensemble cast of numerous Young People's Records and Childrens' Record Guild productions"...I suppose YOU oldtimers all know her, then?
  Sun. 2/6/11 1:57am Matt from Springfield:

Great Single File tonight! Especially Tommy James, I'm a huge fan (and you courageously chose a POST '72 Tommy James 45! Bravo!)
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:00am Joe McG:

Thanks, Matt!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:03am coalhard:

i would like to report multiple hit and runs--i'.m just going to lay here till NASA comes
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:10am Matt from Springfield:

Glad you're doing PSAs again!
But you've done this one before. I remember commenters were thrilled about staying away from "corporate and industrial sites"!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:14am coalhard:

NASA--(no assinine sounds anymore)--a non profit group that exists in my head based in outer space
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:14am Matt from Springfield:

@coalhard: Are you referring to meteor "hit and runs"? If meteor impacts do not cease after 4 hours, you'd better contact NASA.

I like Diane's show, sometimes I listen before Brian Turner. Does she have interviews with the bands, maybe some live ocean performances?
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:18am Joe McG:

I think so! Usually many ocean performances!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:18am Matt from Springfield:

Oooh! Kool & the Gang's "Open Sesame" is on the soundtrack! We would love that! And I like classical too, so Walter Murphy's "A Fifth of Beethoven" or David Shire's "Night on Disco Mountain" would work as well!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:20am Joe McG:

A fine request, Matt!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:20am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Joe! My wish has been granted!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:25am Matt from Springfield:

You really didn't see Saturday Night Fever since you were a kid? I've seen it a few times on TV.

On "I Love the 70s" actor Donal Logue ("Grounded For Life", anyone?) does a funny bit where he dramatically quotes from SNF word-for-word, as they intercut with the original movie (he also did that for "The Warriors"!)
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:26am Brian in UK:

Morning Joe, looks like the usual fine freeform mix.
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:26am coalhard:

me too!!--just one more wish fulfilled and all the beer will be out of the bottle
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:28am Joe McG:

I don't even know how they showed SNF on regular TV. It must've been an hour shorter since most of the scenes have really foul language, bad behavior, etc. It's not a light little movie, that's for sure.

Hey, Brian, nice to "see" you!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:31am Matt from Springfield:

Nice reggae follow up! Lee "Scratch" Perry seals the deal!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:31am coalhard:

this show becoming very popular-it shoud be--so great
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:33am Brian in UK:

The mid Seventies Kool Spirit of the Boogie, Hollywood Swinging was their best period surely, Shirley. Bit behind here Joe
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:34am Matt from Springfield:

Joe has a great ensemble of listeners, coalhard! Sleep comes in a distant second place to SN.
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:35am Joe McG:

Aw, shucks! Sorry about the current one-channel tune, folks--that's the way the cassette was recorded, apparently....
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:38am Julieta:

Great beat Joe. !!!!! definitely someone needs to be at the beach right now . Don't worry about the tape .. 'cause the atmosphere still lives
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:38am Brian in UK:

Cassette,luxury, in my day we had two tin cans if we were lucky!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:39am Joe McG:

This cassette sounds like it was taped in a tin can! Thanks, Julieta, glad it didn't harsh your vibe!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:42am Matt from Springfield:

@Brian: ..which you had to listen to from inside the glass shard mines, 27 hours a day, a lump of cold gravel for dinner!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:49am Brian in UK:

@Matt I thought you knew your Monty Python.
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:51am Matt from Springfield:

@Brian: I sure love their stuff! The Hollywood Bowl movie version of that sketch is the best--the audience reaction makes it better!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:55am Brian in UK:

@Matt I have the Matching Tie & Handy album. It had a double groove on one side, took me a while to figure out why the side was so short!!!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:57am Matt from Springfield:

Wow! Ever since I heard about that 3-sided LP I wanted to find an original LP. Is there any trick to selecting which "side" you want, or do you just have to take what you get?
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:58am Matt from Springfield:

Fantastic show! Good night Joe! Good night everybody!
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:59am Brian in UK:

Pot luck
  Sun. 2/6/11 2:59am Brian in UK:

Pot luck
  Sun. 2/6/11 9:10pm Jennifer Craft:

I love Brother Claude Ely !!!! I just finished reading his biography on www.aintnograve.com ... What a man! Thanks for playing his song today!
