Listener comments!

  Sun. 2/27/11 12:22am Carmichael:

May I say, sir, that funkiness becomes you!
  Sun. 2/27/11 12:23am Joe McG:

Thanks, Carmichael. Get down with your bad self!
  Sun. 2/27/11 12:37am coalhard:

  Sun. 2/27/11 12:38am miss biscuits:

Who's gonna help a sistah get funky
  Sun. 2/27/11 12:47am Joe McG:

Did me best, miss bisc.
  Sun. 2/27/11 12:51am Meghan:

Joe "funk" McGasko!
  Sun. 2/27/11 12:51am Meghan:

Joe "funk" McGasko!
  Sun. 2/27/11 12:51am bryce:

can you play this again when it's done? thanks
  Sun. 2/27/11 12:53am Meghan:

Silly Bryce, that's your show that does stuff like that
  Sun. 2/27/11 12:53am Joe McG:

Hey, Meghan! Evan's had enough time with the Funk. It's my turn.
  Sun. 2/27/11 12:54am Joe McG:

Get back to work, Bryce!
  Sun. 2/27/11 12:55am bryce:

you're distracting me
  Sun. 2/27/11 12:55am Meghan:

And he doesn't play funk.... Hmmmm
  Sun. 2/27/11 12:56am Joe McG:

I can't help that I'm so pretty.
  Sun. 2/27/11 12:58am Joe McG:

Meghan, think of a new middle name for EFD.
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:01am Meghan:

That's tough... I can't think of anything....
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:02am Meghan:

We can come up with nick names for everyone when you cohost!
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:04am coalhard:

glad everybody at the wfmu drive up window has the correct change--all i have is a coupon that expires at 3am
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:07am Matt from Springfield:

Hello Joe, regulars...and other DJs! Quite the 'FMU Funk Fete tonight!
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:08am Matt from Springfield:

How bout Evan "FUN" Davies? Joe's played more funk, on average--Joe "Funk" McGasko is indeed, more becoming!
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:10am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt! I like your idea! Drop the K and bring the fun! Hey, Coalhard, I'll accept your coupon anyway.
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:15am Matt from Springfield:

The Suzan--you've played them before? Or someone here has? I love this "Home", and I remember this Japanese band getting some airtime recently.
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:16am Joe McG:

Yeah, I like 'em, Matt. They're coming to town on March 4, actually. I believe they're Chinese-American, but I'm not sure.
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:19am Matt from Springfield:

"The Suzan is a pop-rock band from Tokyo, Japan", or so says a Google result. I thought they were somewhere in Asia, so I just did a quick search to see what came up (psst--don't tell the comments board that A LOT of my "reporting" is unconfirmed, unvetted glances such as this!)
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:20am Joe McG:

Wow, thanks, Matt! I thought they were from San Francisco! I won't tell anyone your secret. :)
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:22am Joe McG:

I'm playing more Evan Davies-ish music now, don't you think?
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:22am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks! Us researchers have reputations to protect!
(cautiously brushes off shoulders)
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:24am Matt from Springfield:

Any Alabamian listeners to comment on "Jim Bob and the Leisure Suits"?

A friend from school had a cat named Jim Bob, and I called his cat bed area "Jim Bob We"!
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:25am Matt from Springfield:

And yes--EFD would feel at home with this current set (although even more so, this year, if it was 1970 to 1979 material!)
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:28am Matt from Springfield:

I LOVED that Lame Drivers! No clue that was Jason Sigal!
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:33am Matt from Springfield:

This is a lot of comments in a row, but the Rip Rig and Panic album "Knee Deep In Hits" is funny--because they once had a song that was called that, except it was an anagram of that last word!
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:37am Matt from Springfield:

And thanks for "Denise"--I heard this since I was a little kid on my Dad's Oldies stations but didn't know anything about it. Now I know it was '63, know of the band Randy and the Rainbows, and Blondie's cover!
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:39am Joe McG:

Cool, Matt, glad you liked it! My copy is a bit scratchy, but...
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:41am coalhard:

we have 12 people in space right now-plus 1 robot named R2-WATSON wanted to go go but he had jeopardy gig
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:43am kiemzi:

is it time for the slow jams show?
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:43am Matt from Springfield:

Could I get your number, Ramona?
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:45am hunkapappa Syracuse:

Loving the grooves.
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:45am hunkapappa Syracuse:

Loving the grooves.
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:45am hunkapappa Syracuse:

Loving the grooves.
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:46am Joe McG:

Like your monikker, hunkapappa.
  Sun. 2/27/11 1:47am hunkapappa Syracuse:

  Sun. 2/27/11 1:55am coalhard:

neat how we can change the world with our fingers!!! instead of guns!!!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:03am coalhard:

george bush and bin laden must be crying in their soup right now
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:10am kiemzi:

wait i can't hear this PSA over the generator and pressure washer that i'm using inside my apartment right now.
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:12am Matt from Springfield:

Here's to the day when we take pressure washers into our homes!

This was one of your "greatest hits" Joe! I thought of the last time you did this PSA when I saw this recent letter to the editor on generator safety:
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:15am Joe McG:

Kiemzi, you have the cleanest walls in America, I'll bet. Thanks for the generator safety letter, Matt. Very important, people!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:17am kiemzi:

i was just pressure washing my laptop. she's running like a champ now!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:27am Matt from Springfield:

I like the Crystals, this one's new to me.
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:32am Brian in UK:

Mornin' Joe, everyone. Beautiful day here, 'bout time too.
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:33am Joe McG:

Hey, Brian! Welcome!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:37am Brian in UK:

Loved the Willie Wright last week.
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:37am Andrew in Vic, Australia:

I love this, my first time listening to WMFU (I knew of it from the 365 Days Project)
I think Shooting Star is the only song I'd heard before. Good job!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:37am Joe McG:

Thanks, man. That's my favorite album of the year so far. I have to keep myself from playing it every five minutes.
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:39am Matt from Springfield:

@Andrew: I also was into the 365 Days Project before I ever heard of WFMU--hearing it for the first time is like coming home, isn't it?
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:40am Brian in UK:

Has this got Francoise Hardy singing 'Tiny Goddess' by English Nirvana?
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:40am Joe McG:

Welcome, Andrew! Love to hear from Australia.
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:42am Joe McG:

No, unfortunately, Brian. There's a nice Francoise, though: "Je Ne Sais Pas Ce Que Je Veux."
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:42am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, is that Keith's whole professional name? It sounds like the names people running for office in the UK use, like the Monster Raving Loony Party!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:43am Andrew in Vic, Australia:

This is awesome, too bad I don't have a laptop so I can listen outside.
hehe, this song is funny.
my favourite albums are the blue & the red, haha
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:45am coalhard:

i tied a string around my big toe--in case fund raiser starts without me next week--give me a tug !!!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:46am Matt from Springfield:

The funny thing is, I couldn't tell this was supposed to be "Don't Worry Kyoko" despite knowing the original well! I think the important part is to just be noisy with guitars and screaming!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:46am Joe McG:

Don't worry, Coalhard, we'll be tugging!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:47am Matt from Springfield:

@CH: What color is the string? If I see a loose string of that color, I'll give it a tug and remind you of the marathon!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:50am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: You got Irwin beat on this one--kids' covers are normally his department. Usually obnoxious or incorrect covers, but he's played some pretty good kids vocals before.
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:51am Matt from Springfield:

And KITTY WELLS! Thank you!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:51am Joe McG:

HIgh praise indeed, Matt. I don't have any Thomas singing the Beatles...wish I did! Happy birthday, George!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:52am Brian in UK:

Looks like you covered most bases tonight.
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:53am Joe McG:

Sex, drugs, death. Yep, most of 'em!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:56am Matt from Springfield:

OMG, FEB 29! It IS George's birthday! Make sure you say so at the end, if you haven't already.
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:57am Joe McG:

Sure as shootin' will, Matt!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:58am Matt from Springfield:

Feb 25 I mean...already happened. I Should've Known Better!

Have a great night/morning/day everybody!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:59am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening everybody!
  Sun. 2/27/11 2:59am D. Blumin:

Sure as shootin, it done happened!
Bless ya, Joe McG! See u next week, pardner!
  Sun. 2/27/11 3:02am Andrew in Vic, Australia:
