  Sun. 4/10/11 12:39am cheri:

A+ show tonite joe,,,
  Sun. 4/10/11 12:41am john:

just thought I'd let you know that at least one small room of people just danced to Hank Ballard, and loved it.
  Sun. 4/10/11 12:44am Joe McG:

Thanks, John, much appreciated. Thanks, Cheri.
  Sun. 4/10/11 12:50am cheri:

joe-- even though i was born in '81 i was brought up listening to 70s music,,, true fact!
  Sun. 4/10/11 12:50am Joe McG:

I never doubted you!
  Sun. 4/10/11 12:56am cheri:

ty joe,,well it's time for me to split before i over stay my welcome,,keep the hits commin,,thnx for your company happy spring ,,,night!!
  Sun. 4/10/11 12:57am Joe McG:

Happy spring, sleep well!
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:07am #K:

  Sun. 4/10/11 1:07am Joe McG:

#K! I know who you are now!
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:09am Matt from Springfield:

A Hearty Good Evenin' to ya Joe!
Like this Ponytail--is this their first recording?
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:11am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt. Nope, they put out another record a couple of years ago. Liz B's favorite record of 2009, if I'm not mistaken!
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:12am #K:

*_* yes I am working on big star now... thank you for the MUS-IC I am glad you didn't have a fill in!
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:12am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Joe! I'm checking them out!
Cheri seems to have left the building, but I'd like to give her a fist-bump in appreciation of the Mighty Mighty Seventies! I was born in '85 and was brought up listening to Motown, British Invasion, Sound of Philly, Pop Rock, Acid Rock, and so much more!
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:14am Matt from Springfield:

OOIOO, not to be confused with oOoOO...
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:14am Joe McG:

Thanks, #K, it's nice to know you're out there. Matt, you and Cheri may be my target audience, if I have one: 70s Lovers!
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:18am Matt from Springfield:

Still loving the 70s! So-retro-its-popular-again may have been in the 90s for that decade, but with Freeform, everything that was--will live on! Pledgers will agree with me that WFMU gives you an almost INSTANT return on your investment!
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:18am Matt from Springfield:

Ah, new Flying Lizards reissue! Must be why I've heard a lot of them lately.
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:19am Joe McG:

Indeed! I'm glad these albums are back with a bonus.
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:22am coelacanth:

Joe i'm switching to airwaves now and hopefully drifting off but Thank you.
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:23am Joe McG:

Drift away, my friend, drift away...
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:25am trent:

  Sun. 4/10/11 1:33am tim:

hi joe. kk is a reptilian shape shifter. great show.
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:34am Matt from Springfield:

  Sun. 4/10/11 1:35am Joe McG:

Thanks, Tim! I think KK is one of the coolest guys ever.
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:41am tim:

ditto boxcar willie. royal blood lines and all that. no reflection on song writing greatness. go figure.
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:45am kiemzi:

chris & i are listening to your delightful radio programme. he is LOADED.
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:45am Joe McG:

That is certainly the proper way to listen to this show.
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:51am Matt from Springfield:

@kiemzi, Joe: I second that! (toasts gin to audience)

In fact, did you know...when you drop a bottle of gin it CARBONATES, almost like dropping a bottle of soda! Fortunately my bottle had a plastic spout blocking the top, so I got wet but didn't lose the gin I would have from an open bottle. Hooray!
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:52am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: Actually I love when your show was moved to 12-3 instead of 3-6. One, it's easier to listen live now, and Two, people are still loaded and having fun and making weird comments, instead of passed out and quiet! Hooray!
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:53am Joe McG:

Speaking of getting loaded and making comments, wonder whatever happened to Coalhard?
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:55am Matt from Springfield:

I was just thinking of him with kiemzi's comment...he is still around, I still chat with him on Julie's show when I catch that live, and I see his comments on other late night shows. Sadly I haven't seen him around here lately.
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:57am Joe McG:

I need to drop a few gin bottles on the air, I think.
  Sun. 4/10/11 1:59am coalhard:

  Sun. 4/10/11 2:00am Matt from Springfield:

coalhard! The Great CH! Radio silence has ended! The Apollo craft has re-entered safely! Hoo! Ray!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:01am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: Now drinking gin at this hour would be fun, but dropping them on the air? I think Ken and Andy would be more enthused about that, seeing how they continually try to find the most radio "friendly" stunts to do!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:04am maestroso:

Just got back from a gig, listened in the car and now home. Not loaded. Now having a scotch, and been digging the show. Good morning everyone!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:05am Marmalade Kitty:

Good morning!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:07am Matt from Springfield:

Welcome to the comments, maestroso! Is that a single malt or blended?

MK, another loyal Night Owl!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:07am Matt from Springfield:

Daddy's Hideaway with Tim! The resident God Of Cyrillic Fonts!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:09am maestroso:

@Matt Just garden variety Dewar's. Still tasty, though.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:10am Matt from Springfield:

Dewar's Will Do It!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:12am Marmalade Kitty:

Hey Joe, what was the back ground music just there?
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:12am Joe McG:

That sounds like a slogan in one of those magazine ads in the New Yorker.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:13am maestroso:

These are not my normal operating hours, and it's nice to hear a late night show with all of you. I'll be on the other side of the world for the next two weeks so I'll pop in from time to time on the boards.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:14am Matt from Springfield:

Or "Country Life", the upper-crust British magazine, every other ad (at least in the 70s) was for British Isles liquor or cigs!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:16am Joe McG:

You're going to make me run for the Roxy Music LP, Matt. Also good with Scotch.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:17am Brian in UK:

Mornin' Joe & folks from a beautifully sunny UK. In contrast to Matt I liked 3-6 as I could listen live. Not too sure Joe would agree.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:18am Matt from Springfield:

@maestroso: That's as good a time as any to pop in on WFMU boards--when I was in Thailand the only shows I had time to comment on were those right after daily tours ended, the early morning ones 12 hours behind. I think it's fun to listen and comment on the other side of the world--go for it!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:19am Matt from Springfield:

You're right Brian, 3-6 is better for the UK, but as I'm seldom if ever awake before 11 on Sunday morning, that wouldn't affect me!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:19am Joe McG:

@Brian: ha ha. I heard more from Europe at 3-6, but I'm far too in love with my bed to regret getting home to it earlier.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:21am Brian in UK:

Joe, only just seen Reparata was it the lady with the Delrons? What a group name.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:22am Brian in UK:

The wonder of the archives. We can thank Station Manager Ken for the archives as well as most good things about FMU it seems.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:23am Joe McG:

Yeah, it's a bit of a controversial record since two Reparatas fought for the title. Check out the Reparata wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reparata_and_the_Delrons
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:23am Matt from Springfield:

Is anyone else imagining an early Bowie when they hear the last singer, Michael Chapman?
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:25am Marmalade Kitty:

Joe, what was the music while you were talking? I liked it!
Definately Bowie! Any Roger chapman? what was he called again.. electric goat :)
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:25am Matt from Springfield:

@Brian: Yes, the ARCHIVES! That's half the value of WFMU! It's an unprecedented resource you don't see on any other station website--so comprehensive, so easy to search and play! WFMU's Archives prove that you will NEVER be bored, as long as you have an Internet connection!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:25am Julieta:

Almendra ???? I just can't believe this . Spinetta it's THE rock poet of argentina ( my country) Joe I love you
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:26am Joe McG:

@ Julieta: big :)
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:26am sonic gaucho:

the name of the band is almendra, instead of alemandra, greetings from argentina best radio in the world!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:27am Matt from Springfield:

¡Buenos noches, Julieta!
Great how Joe can make new fans of the Argentinian Alemandra on his show, AND please existing fans of Alemandra as well! :)
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:28am Matt from Springfield:

Now a name like Silvio Silveira must be Brazilian, right? Same with "Voce Que Nao Vem"?
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:29am Julieta:

ON Daniel Blummin's show I heard Atahualpa Yupanki, Definetly this is the best radio station
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:30am Brian in UK:

I think Michael Chapman was ploughing his own furrow. Knowing what a magpie was Mr Bowie it might be more a case of Bowie sounds like MC.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:31am Marmalade Kitty:

Dear Joe, please tell.. sorry don't mean to be a pain! I really liked it! the background music...?
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:31am Julieta:

Buanas Noches for you too ! Matt from Springfield !
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:33am Joe McG:

Thanks Sonic Gaucho, I'm doing 2:30 a.m. typing.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:35am Joe McG:

Hey, Kitty, I'll mention it during my next mic break.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:36am sonic gaucho:

its ok joe incredible music from las pampas on your show! thanks!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:36am Marmalade Kitty:

you tease me! I also have secret titles for songs!
There it is again :)!!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:41am Joe McG:

Oh, sorry, Kitty, I totally forgot! It's Kevin Ayers from his album "What More Can I Say...."
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:41am Matt from Springfield:

Julieta, are you in Buenos Aires?
That way we can wish you "Buenos noches a Buenos Aires"!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:42am Brian in UK:

Oh. Joe. Killer. I'm regressing as I listen.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:42am Joe McG:

This one goes out to you, buddy.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:44am Julieta:

lol ! No I'm not . I 'm in another city , Cordoba ! at the middle of the country , greetings !
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:44am Looms:

Good evening/night/morning all!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:44am Matt from Springfield:

I remember Kevin Ayers now, I think he's even commented a few times in praise of you using his music. But for me, that lovely tune will always be the "Single File, and all the world is well" tune! Much like Lee Morgan's "Yes I Can, No You Can't" for Irwin's show!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:45am Brian in UK:

Bonjour, galette consultant!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:48am Joe McG:

Thanks, Matt, for the associations. Alas, that "Kevin Ayers" was only fooling, not the real fellow.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:48am Rob W:

Okay, with Joe having ended his previous set with a track from Uruguay (although we've moved on), I'd like to tell any NJ listeners awake (or listening to the archive) about my favorite new informal dining discovery, Uruguay pizza at 815 3rd Ave in Elizabeth, NJ! A perfect stop on your way to or from Newark Airport (you can enjoy the planes buzzing overhead). Very different from pizza typically found in NY or NJ: For example, thin square slices (cut into smaller rectangles) stuffed with ham and soft cheese, and fainá, a sort of garbanzo bread generally eaten with pizza - which I might add is actually vegan - a dietary option that's rare in most North American pizzerias! (They also have other Uruguayan non-pizza specialties and it's a very bright friendly place.)
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:49am Matt from Springfield:

@Julieta: I know where that is! Thanks for enjoying WFMU. There are a lot of listeners all over the world, but you, and sonic gaucho are the first Argentines I've chatted with. Joe is happy to make you happy!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:50am Joe McG:

Cool, Rob, thanks for the excellent dining tip.
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:54am Julieta:

WFMU sorprise me each day even more . I really glad to found this station . 3.53 sunday morning here I can't stay far away from you guys .@ Joe Thanks a lot !!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:55am Joe McG:

@Julieta: Thanks so much for listening! How nice to have folks from all over tuned in!
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:56am lauren berry:

joe joe joe
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:57am Joe McG:

Hey, Lauren! :)
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:58am Marmalade Kitty:

Thanks Joe. Great show! I have deja vu with kevin Ayres?! Weird
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:58am lauren berry:

i haven't seen you since the big star show! how did that end up?
i'm still recovering from the most intense night 11' ps
  Sun. 4/10/11 2:59am Joe McG:

I had to run to do my show...Are you volunteering again soon?
  Sun. 4/10/11 3:00am lauren berry:

probably not till finals are over. see you june possibly, hopefully sooner!
  Sun. 4/10/11 3:01am Matt from Springfield:

Fantastic show Joe! Good night!
And good night to my listener friends, old and new!
  Sun. 4/10/11 3:02am Brian in UK:

Sleep well, Joe. Thanks.
  Sun. 4/10/11 3:02am Joe McG:

Thanks, All! Goodnight to you!
  Sun. 4/10/11 3:02am Marmalade Kitty:
