Listener comments!

  Sun. 8/14/11 12:08am jeff-m:

I love this song. Thanks Joe :)
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:11am Chop Scott:

Perfect soundtrack to drink and listen to a drip from the upstairs neighbors...
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:13am Joe McG:

Hey, Jeff! Hey, Scott! Welcome to the Mope Fest.
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:14am D. Blumin:

Joe, quit stepping on my feet... If you're leading, lead dammit!
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:16am KP:

There's thunder and there's this. Thanks.
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:16am Joe McG:

Oh, Daniel!
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:17am KP:

Oh, gawd. Stop it. Wah!
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:17am Joe McG:

Thunderous Orbs.
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:18am KP:

I can't believe this.
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:18am 12539:

Are you okay tonight, Joe? I'm beginning to wonder if Daniel should leave you alone in the studio.
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:18am D. Blumin:

Looks like Valentine's came early this year...
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:18am KP:

Blew the math question, ruined the mood.
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:19am T-Zero:

What's next, Skeeter Davis' "The End of the World"?
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:20am Joe McG:

Not a bad idea, T-Zero, but I've got to read the weather.
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:23am T-Zero:

Oh! Esther Phillips' "Stormy Weather" lol
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:29am Nazerbean:

Going through a breakup... I'm crying you a flood, whoops. Thanks for the heart wrenchers!
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:32am Joe McG:

No problem, Nazerbean. I feels your pain.
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:44am dursun:

great show tonight
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:47am Joe McG:

Hey, dursun, welcome!
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:53am Matt from Springfield:

Hey Joe! Great set!
Liking the rock Classical, then jumped up with joy at the original "Ferris Bueller chase song"!!
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:55am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt!
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:56am Matt from Springfield:

I see this "What Is Beat?" is a vinyl Greatest Hits album, doesn't say whether it was ever brought onto CD, I don't think.

When I found the title of this song, I couldn't find it anywhere--I had a friend look on some of his shiftier P2P networks, and he finally found an MP3 that was obviously taken from an aged vinyl record! I still have that, treasure it as there was no official movie soundtrack (WHY, John, WHY??!!)
  Sun. 8/14/11 12:57am Joe McG:

I'm so dumb, Matt, I didn't even know it was used in a movie. It's on a freebie EP with the UK version of the greatest hits.
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:00am Matt from Springfield:

And Dub!
Too bad I missed the opening, "For The Good Times", that my grandmother and late grandfather's song. What a great one!

Yeah, they seemed to issue various formats with "March" until the movie made it TOO popular...It was also the B-side of "Jeanette"--so Single File potential there!
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:02am Chuck E. Jesus:

this has been some good dub...
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:02am Joe McG:

Good to know, Matt! Many Beat singles I be needing!
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:05am Joe McG:

@Chuck: Fine moniker, sir. I genuflect in your general direction.
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:07am Matt from Springfield:

Genuflect, then go down the slide, and listen to Dubs!
I had beer earlier, but this track has made me break out the WHITE RUM! Silver rum but tastes about good as gold right now! (toast)
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:08am Matt from Springfield:

That reminds us...hey Julie! You out there tonight? :D
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:18am WFMU comment board:

Please--enough Julie
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:26am Matt from Springfield:

YES! I love this one!
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:36am Brian in UK:

Hello Joe & co. That second set looks like a belter.
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:37am Joe McG:

It was, Brian, it was! I belted the whole thing right out.
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:46am Brian in UK:

Hey Joe, ever thought about a show with songs titles that have (bracketed titles)?
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:47am Joe McG:

An all parens show? Not a bad idea, Brian!
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:49am fleep:

(I Can't Get No) Punctuation
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:49am Brian in UK:

Now this is silly http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hey_Joe
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:52am D. Blumin:

  Sun. 8/14/11 1:54am Matt from Springfield:

JP did a pretty popular cover of the Joan Baez 70s song "Diamonds and Rust"!
  Sun. 8/14/11 1:55am Joe McG:

@Matt: That's a good 'ne. No parentheses, though, unfortunately.
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:01am 12539:

(Is this 7" not 45 rpm?)
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:04am Matt from Springfield:

YAY for split-band promo singles!
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:09am Brian in UK:

Joe, have you considered the February 29th show. It could last all day.
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:10am Matt from Springfield:

And YAY for PSAs! Daniel reads those pretty well!
And yes, that is an important one, but really it's just smacking people upside the head and saying "Remember what you're not supposed to do? KEEP ON NOT DOING IT!"
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:11am Matt from Springfield:

"SEMA--promoting life, in New Jersey" :P
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:12am Matt from Springfield:

You're welcome Daniel! You might want to wait until there are several seconds without lightning, before walking outside.
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:17am Joe McG:

This Jazz Butcher makes me think of a good movie I saw recently called "I'll Come Running." An interesting twist on the whole Best Friend's Girl thing.
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:25am Matt from Springfield:

Good advice on the weather!

And on films too. I'm glad "Harold and Maude" finally came to my mailbox--I'm going to watch it tomorrow!
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:25am T-Zero:

With the exception of Kiiiii, this has been an all male show. (Just sayin')
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:27am Joe McG:

I feel terrible about this. I was going to play Ann Peebles during the single file, but I didn't get to it...I'll get some femmes on in the last half hour.
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:28am #K:

Hi Joe, um.
Just sticking my head in before the curtain comes down
hope you're doing fine!
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:29am Joe McG:

Hey, #K! Curtain comes down sounds so doomy!
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:30am T-Zero:

It was simply an observation, not a complaint.

And weather related, a stage collapsed due to weather in Indianapolis during a Sugarland state fair concert so now Iowa state fair cancelled their Sunday show. (No Sugarland performers hurt, but 4 others were killed)
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:32am Joe McG:

Wow, that's really awful, T-Zero. I hate when people get killed trying to have fun. Seems especially cruel. (P.S. I usually am better about keeping an eye on m/f ratios. Guess I'm in a "guy" mood toinght.)
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:37am T-Zero:

It was rather strange. They were moving people into tunnels under the stage at the time (because of wind, wasn't raining). A bunch of other people were hurt as well.

Re: 10cc, I played the The Original Soundtrack album into the ground back in the day.
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:39am Matt from Springfield:

Yeah, it's a shame that happened. Especially because how many people are killing because of lightning and weather each year (earlier noted), then when they're evacuated to cover, the stage collapses! Really terrible.
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:39am Brian in UK:

(The Venusians) have been getting short shrift lately on your show' Mr McGasko. A word in Mr Clinton's shell-like.
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:40am #K:

I thought doomy was the theme maybe?
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:41am Joe McG:

UH-OH, the studio just sprung a leak. Maybe it should be doomy!
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:41am T-Zero:

@#K: Did seem like a broken heart theme at first.

@Joe: Heh, my pc must not have liked the female voiced track. The sound cut out except for the last few seconds. lol
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:43am T-Zero:

@Joe: You be careful driven' home.
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:43am Brian in UK:

Think Joe has passed it on to the weather & listeners, though maybe inadvertently.
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:45am T-Zero:

Leaking on any equipment?
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:46am #K:

feeling more deluge-y!
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:46am Joe McG:

@T: Not yet! Mary's assembling the buckets...
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:47am Brian in UK:

On the cusp of (apocalypse)
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:47am T-Zero:

There's buckets? I figured trash cans. lol
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:52am Matt from Springfield:

Nice, meditative "crunchy" set!
Just make sure the studio equipment floats, so you can keep spinning platters even if you're in several feet of water!
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:52am Joe McG:

It may come to that. I'm putting on my water wings right now...
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:55am 12539:

Thanks for the show, Joe.
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:55am tomB:

Who adopted the ceiling this yr?
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:55am Brian in UK:

Take care gettin' home, Joe & everyone.
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:56am T-Zero:

Take care Joe.
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:57am Chop Scott:

Bucket detail on two floors now....but thanks Joe for the decent company
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:57am Matt from Springfield:

THE Fanny?! From all your sets and premiums?! What a delight! I'll listen to that one intently!

Stay safe getting home, Joe. A marvelous show!
  Sun. 8/14/11 2:57am Joe McG:

Good night, everyone, and thanks for tuning in, as always...Have a great week!
