Evening, Joe McG!
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:14am Joe McG:

  Sun. 9/11/11 12:16am T-Zero:

  Sun. 9/11/11 12:18am Chop Scott:

  Sun. 9/11/11 12:21am cheri:

  Sun. 9/11/11 12:23am Board Spirit:

cheri, a/k/a the Deja Vu Kid
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:24am Joe McG:

@Scott: Seems like a good time to continue drinking!
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:25am Board Spirit:

Puff, pass.
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:25am Joe McG:

@BS: And that, too....
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:26am fleep:

Certain rituals must be observed. Puff, pass (a combination of Bubba Kush and White OG, btw)
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:26am R I S K Y:

  Sun. 9/11/11 12:29am fleep:

Great opening Joe, diggin the bongos
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:30am 12539:

(lurking contentedly)
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:30am Joe McG:

Thanks, fleep! This is tonight's soundtrack.
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:31am cheri:

so joe how's it going? i'm really enjoying the show, but if you don't have the cd,,no problem
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:32am Joe McG:

Hi, Cheri, going well!
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:37am Holly in NC:

Hi Joe -
VERY tired, but will be listening from a prone position until I fall asleep.
Earlier I took my best friend out for her birthday & discovered that cayenne hibiscus beer is not a ridiculous foodie conceit -it's darn tasty! But that, combined with the porter I started with, a huge meal, and a 1 1/2 hour brisk walk in the blazing noonday sun (my friend sometimes has a far, far, different idea of fun than I do) now leaves me completely wiped out.
Have a great show - I'll listen for as long as I can ;-)
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:37am cheri:

joe i want to apoligize about hounding you about the cake ,,,i'm really sorry
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:39am Holly in NC:

Whoa - congrats!
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:40am Barbie:

Math class is hard.
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:40am T-Zero:

Well, hey there. Congratulations, Joe!!!

Just remember, it's the quality not the quantity.
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:41am Holly in NC:

@Barbie -
I remember when you said that...
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:41am Wikpedia:

Made for Each Other is a 1971 feature film directed by Robert B. Bean.
Both starring and written by the husband and wife team of Renée Taylor and Joseph Bologna, the movie traces the relationship of Pandora and Giggy, a seemingly incompatible couple who meet in a group therapy session and fall in love.
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:41am 12539:

What did he just say? I always thought Joe sounded much younger than 150.
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:42am cheri:

best wishes joe
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:43am Genius:

Typing during a mic break is hard.
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:44am Genius:

Vangelis, who almost replaced Rick Wakeman after he left Yes in 1974.
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:46am T-Zero:

@Joe McG: We'll let you slide on the tv show. After all, they did make reunion moves. We'll just pretend it was from that. ;)
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:46am Joe McG:

Thanks everybody for the good wishes. 150 is tough, but I'm sure 200 is much harder.
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:47am Joe McG:

@Holly: Wow, hot beer! Thanks for checkin' in, as always. @Cheri: No problem, Cheri. Thanks for cooling it.
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:47am Holly in NC:

Dear lord I love Jim Ford!
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:48am fleep:

Romance on the basis of timing the migratory patterns of herbivores is just milking it.
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:54am G:

Trivia: Yvonne sang backing vocals on "I Shot the Sheriff"
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:55am Joe McG:

@G: I wonder if she was eating a casserole while she was singing it?
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:55am Holly in NC:

marzipan bunny !
did she just say she was going to puke in your soup???
*awesome* song*
now i'm really going to sleep
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:56am fleep:

Why is the floor lighting up?
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:56am Joe McG:

@Holly: That's what the gal said! G'night!
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:57am cheri:

well joe i'm heading out now,, thnx for havin me i'll still be listening to the show,,see you soon night
  Sun. 9/11/11 12:59am Joe McG:

Sleep well, all who are sleeping. Dance well, all who are dancing.
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:00am G:

Any sleepdancers out there? This would be the crowd to find one in.
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:05am 12539:

Have you run Napoleone Il Cow Boy by Evan Funk Davies?
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:06am Joe McG:

@12539: Is he Napoleon or the Cowboy?
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:10am 12539:

He spent the summer wearing out the Renegades version of that tune (in English).
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:11am Joe McG:

Oh, yeah! I think Joe Belock started that, though, and then it, uh, escalated. I was guilty of several plays myself.
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:15am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Joe!
Dorothy makes a good dancin' song!
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:15am Joe McG:

Dance, Matt, Dance!
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:17am Matt from Springfield:

I am! Loving this. And it's most definitely:

Her Time . . . . . . . . . Dorothy! Way ahead!
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:22am tomB:

speaking of grlz, Joe, didn't you play the English version of that Celentano song by Ann-Margret, presumably as 13 Men.
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:25am Joe McG:

I did indeed, tomB! Your memory is amazing!
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:35am Matt from Springfield:

Green Jello, it's some people's thing I'm sure...
combine with the plaid jacket and you got a very "specialized" taste...
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:36am Matt from Springfield:

Just no way--it's like shopping for shoes online or in a catalog. When I bought my mattress, I just had to LIE on them to find out!
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:38am Joe McG:

@Matt: That's what it came down to, Matt. I went from store to store and sprawled on 'em.
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:39am Matt from Springfield:

Incidentally, before the civil rights era many blacks mail ordered their shoes out of catalogs, if there weren't black shops and no one else would serve them.
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:40am fleep:

We had memory foam for ten years, learning to turn over when you are in a ditch shaped like you takes some getting used to
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:40am Matt from Springfield:

"Knock On Wood" riff there!
I like those Radio Stars, like Glam punk!
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:41am Joe McG:

@fleep: Uh-oh, back in the ditch! @Matt: Yeah, they didn't even put a credit on the record for stealing that riff, either!
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:45am fleep:

Bee Gee wails!
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:50am Joe McG:

"Let the love juice overflow/And drown us in our ecstasy."
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:51am Matt from Springfield:

I just heard "The Snake" by this same guy today--that single was produced by Johnny Rivers, and sounds like it. This is a VERY different Al Wilson!
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:52am Matt from Springfield:

The way I want to make love to you should be rated X! Wow!
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:52am Joe McG:

Yeah, the 70s Al is a bit more, uh, into eargasms. In the 60s he behaved himself and sang Jimmy Webb songs. Also great!
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:53am Matt from Springfield:

And this is a VERY different Betty "Disco" Wright, at least from her "Clean Up Woman" days.
  Sun. 9/11/11 1:55am Joe McG:

I like the part at the end when she gets all wacky with her vocal.
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:03am tomB:

HH&F: is that Albert Lee?
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:04am Matt from Springfield:

Didn't realize there was ever a time when "Tony Orlando" was the same thing as "Dawn"; my Dad and I have talked before about Tony getting individual credit, but "Dawn" being collective.
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:24am Julie:

I missed a song called "Baby Spread Your Love On Me???"
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:26am Joe McG:

I forgot to mention: It was written by Mac Davis!
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:27am Julie:

"Crippled Dick Hot Wax?" Do I need ID for the show tonight, Joe?
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:29am Joe McG:

Great label out of Germany! Maybe Crippled Dick is like Spotted Dick, some kind of food.
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:34am T-Zero:

Cripple Cock is a beer so maybe it's a play on that
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:35am T-Zero:

Well, technically it's a cider
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:36am Joe McG:

@T-Zero: I hope that beer's label has a rooster on crutches on the label.
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:36am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Julie! Top o' the evening to ye!
@Joe: The thing that stands out for me is "Reeperbahn Gorillas"! I SO want to form a punk band with that name!
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:36am T-Zero:

  Sun. 9/11/11 2:37am Joe McG:

@Matt: You'd be in good company: There was a Hammersmith Gorillas, I believe.
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:38am Julie:

there is a rooster didn't notice if he was on crutches
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:40am T-Zero:

He's not, but he has a peg leg
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:40am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Perhaps the rooster is crippled because he only has one leg; you know, like the Soca song about a man's one-legged rooster, his "One Foot Cock" !
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:41am fleep:

The Band did a tribute song to it, called "Up on Cripple Cock"
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:41am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: Y'know, I was probably subconsciously thinking of those (proto-punk) Hammersmith Gorillas when I saw the name! But, I still like the Reeperbahn Gs--paint themselves as "the Beatles from Hell!"
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:42am Julie:

It is funny the lengths men will go to to use the word "cock"
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:42am Joe McG:

Lengths, heh heh.
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:43am Joe McG:

(Trying to get in the mood for the Beavis and Butthead revival.)
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:44am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: True dat. Even if the slang euphemism for it was called "stereophonic sound", we would find some way to work it in there!
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:44am Julie:

Oh like they EVER went away..they live on in our hearts
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:44am alberto:

you all talk the talk, but can you cock the cock?
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:44am Julie:

This is kinda Cocteau Twinny
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:45am Joe McG:

  Sun. 9/11/11 2:45am Julie:

You can at least counter it with a song by Pussy Galore
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:46am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: :D

True dat as well, this song has that prolonged shoegazey feel to it, much like Robin Guthrie's guitaring.
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:46am Joe McG:

Now THAT'S theme programming!
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:46am Julie:

Reminds me of the Mysterious Skin soundtrack
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:47am Julie:

You'd have to get some Jerry Lee Lewis in there as well
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:47am Joe McG:

I'm done with soundtracks for the evening. I think.
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:47am Julie:

I think we need to start suggesting a genitalia theme to Meghan
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:49am T-Zero:

I was just thinking you should collaborate on that with someone on a web only show
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:50am Joe McG:

@Julie: Pseu Braun once did a marathon premium on that theme.
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:51am Julie:

@Joe AH of course she did! This is more very pretty guitar noodlings
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:52am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Which goes quite well with my lo mein noodlings right now.
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:53am Julie:

@Matt but it does not go with the constant stream of motorcycles driving past my place all night..
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:53am Matt from Springfield:

Conspiracy Theorists: This Klaatu IS a re-formed Beatles! Does this not sound like Paul McCartney??!!
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:54am Julie:

@Matt was just thinking it was very Paul-like, first time I've heard a similiarity
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:54am Matt from Springfield:

Eh? Motorcycles? Are they doing a "Freedom Ride" or something in Manhattan for the 9/11 anniversary?
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:56am Matt from Springfield:

When I first looked up Klaatu I wondered why the theorists were talking, but hearing this Paul-like one I can see why there was some chatter about a reformed Beatles.
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:56am Julie:

Must be...it was a nonstop stream of motorcycles down the west side highway earlier... the cars couldn't go anywhere as bike after bike turned onto the highway, even with a red light
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:57am Julie:

"Deaf Idiot Journalist Starts Beatle Rumour"
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:57am Julie:

wow and it's over..just like that..thanks Joe :)
  Sun. 9/11/11 2:59am Matt from Springfield:

Subways, Soundtracks and Eargasms! with Joe McGasko !!

Thanks so much Joe, have a great night!
Time flies when we're having fun!
  Sun. 9/11/11 3:00am T-Zero:

Enjoy your new bed Joe, take care
  Sun. 9/11/11 3:00am fleep:

Thanks Joe, lots of juicy archive treats tonight
  Sun. 9/11/11 3:00am 12539:

150 thanks, Joe.
  Sun. 9/11/11 3:01am Julie:

preach on brother Joe
