  Sun. 10/30/11 12:26am Joe McG:

MIke Sin is such a gent! Thanks, Mike.
  Sun. 10/30/11 12:26am Sue:

Mr. Sin speaks the truth
  Sun. 10/30/11 12:29am mark from vt:

That's right I have seen Joe in action from Friday morning until just hours ago at the record fair and now he is working on the air. No signs of exhaustion from him at all. I am tired though
  Sun. 10/30/11 12:34am Joe McG:

It was great to meet you, Mark, and thanks so much for your help all weekend!
  Sun. 10/30/11 12:35am Marmalade Kitty:

  Sun. 10/30/11 12:38am Joe McG:

@Kitty: That's a great way to put it. Sorry, BTW, I didn't bring any Police records...
  Sun. 10/30/11 12:38am Marmalade Kitty:

I'd love to know who coined the term Shock in Awetober :0
  Sun. 10/30/11 12:39am Joe McG:

This one goes out to all you Philleydelfians....
  Sun. 10/30/11 12:39am Joe McG:

@Kitty: I should know that, but I already forgot! One of the DJs, I'm pretty sure.
  Sun. 10/30/11 12:40am Sue:

  Sun. 10/30/11 12:51am Marmalade Kitty:

A great "The Police" performance from my home town area give 10 miles or so..
  Sun. 10/30/11 12:52am mark from vt:

I did not get to see Joe frank but I got to sit in his chair before loading it on the truck. It was a bit wobbly but I felt better knowing that if I sat in it and it did not break Joe would be safe in it
  Sun. 10/30/11 12:52am muhron:

Greetings from Eugene, OR.

Happy Halloween!
  Sun. 10/30/11 12:55am Julie:

Thanks MK. Has Halloween caught on over there yet?
  Sun. 10/30/11 12:56am Julie:

I hope Joe hits his goal, that 97 percent is an odd number and it bugs me
  Sun. 10/30/11 12:59am Marmalade Kitty:

since walmart bought out uk ASDA, most certainly so!! haha I was shopping there and all the staff were dressed as wicke fiendis types :)
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:00am Marmalade Kitty:

wicked Fiendish!!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:00am Kronos:

Walmart is big on Satan worship. That's how they got so big!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:00am Sue:

that's awesome! (the halloween/walmart thing),... AND this track. killer international set
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:01am mark from vt:

Maybe Joe can reach 99 percent from the listeners and some rich person will kick in the last percent.
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:02am Sue:

he's making his goal tonight, i'm sure of it
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:02am Marmalade Kitty:

a plea to the 0.1%
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:03am Marmalade Kitty:

You have to remember that the poor REALLY have the numbers on side..!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:05am david:

long live the fireplace crackle of vinyl
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:07am Sue:

gpt anything from iceland?
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:08am mark from vt:

I heard they have the best parties in iceland
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:08am Joe McG:

@Sue: I wish I did! We had the mayor of Reykjavik at the Radio Vision conference today!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:10am mark from vt:

Yeah that guy put on the best party at the symposium today
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:12am Sue:

Jón Gnarr is his name?
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:13am Marmalade Kitty:

Halloween was always here in UK, but it's only recently that we have caught on to the PUMPKIN! :) When I was a child, late 70's early 80's, we used to use TURNIPS or swedes for lanterns! Carving pumpkin is as simple as de seeding a water mellon.. carving a turnip used to take hours..! solid turnip head! and the smell of burning candle wick and turnip.. oughh!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:17am Matt from Springfield:

Hey Joe!
TransWORLD Singles Paradise tonight! Woohoo!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:18am Marmalade Kitty:

Pumpkin grow in warmer climate, since advent of unlimited global import.. da-da!!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:18am Joe McG:

Ha ha ha! Hey, Matt!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:18am mark from vt:

Yes Jon gnar was possibly the "best part" y of the day
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:19am Marmalade Kitty:

Hiya Matt!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:20am 12539:

  Sun. 10/30/11 1:20am Matt from Springfield:

MKitty! Hiya!
I can't wait till WE get to go back an hour! That hour was taken from us, and we will get it back! :)
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:22am Marmalade Kitty:

Pooh sticks! were stiff records?
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:22am Matt from Springfield:

"I Pooh"--that's funny, because there was a book called the "Tao of Pooh", explaining Taoism using (the original A.A. Milne) Winnie the Pooh characters. So maybe they want to explain the "I Ching" instead of the Tao Te Ching that way!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:24am Matt from Springfield:

There was a band called The Pooh Sticks--"On Tape" is a song from 1988 on the CD86 comp.

Thanks Julie! I won that from you this marathon! :D
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:26am Marmalade Kitty:

tantalizingly close Joe..
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:28am Marmalade Kitty:

  Sun. 10/30/11 1:28am Sue:

woo hoo!!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:29am Marmalade Kitty:

sickest basssline!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:30am Matt from Springfield:

Bass and that steel drum! A familiar, yet still quite different Talking Heads sound.
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:31am Marmalade Kitty:

..sickest basssline continued!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:31am Matt from Springfield:

Hey, Anemic Boyfriends, us guys are not proud--because don't cha know that Pride Comes Before A Fall? :)
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:33am Matt from Springfield:

@MKitty: The last couple songs are making it so I don't need to turn my woofer up!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:33am Marmalade Kitty:

  Sun. 10/30/11 1:35am Joe McG:

Woof! Woof!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:36am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: Wow, you have no idea when that Orhan Sener 45 came out? It's got to be 1948 or after, but not even a decade to guess, is it that much of a mystery?
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:36am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: Also nice (synth)bass on this one!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:36am Marmalade Kitty:

Matt! check out Bill Macs show PSA little red riding hood part 1/2
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:37am Joe McG:

@Matt: I think it's around 1966 or so, but it's hard to tell. I can't find a listing on it anywhere.
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:38am Marmalade Kitty:

B Mac 29th oct..
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:38am Colin Newman:

Awright, S Teens - it's snowing, McGask is playing me - who gonna pledge 15 bux and bring him home to 100%??
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:39am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: Thanks, I saw the question mark and wondered if Orhan was that more mind-boggling!
@MKitty: Thanks, I was just about to ask when!...I see it's at the beginning, I'll check that out!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:39am Marmalade Kitty:

I hope it never stops snowing! so peaceful
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:41am Marmalade Kitty:

New Years Day U2 vid.. so peaceful :) I think the vid turned me on to U*2 as a kid
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:44am Marmalade Kitty:

.. and then Bono won the Guiness book of world records biggest shit, on south park :)
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:46am Sue:

  Sun. 10/30/11 1:46am Colin Newman:

  Sun. 10/30/11 1:47am Matt from Springfield:

  Sun. 10/30/11 1:48am Joe McG:

Thanks, everybody, I really appreciate your support!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:48am Matt from Springfield:

New Wave Gene Pitney cover! This is what I'm talking about!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:56am Matt from Springfield:

I actually like this version better than the original.
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:57am Joe McG:

Full fake Wall o' Sound in effect!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:58am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: You do gotta hand it to Phil Spector...nowadays you can get a whole "fake" Wall o' Sound with the push of a button!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:59am blujacket:

yeah baby!
  Sun. 10/30/11 1:59am Matt from Springfield:

All right, not only the "most abrasive single of 1969", but the B-SIDE of it! ("Cold Turkey" b/w "Don't Worry Kyoko" actually could be the most abrasive mainstream 45 of all time!)
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:00am Joe McG:

Sounds like a throwdown, Matt! Can you think of any others?
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:01am Matt from Springfield:

After listener pierre was mentioning the "waves" on a set, New Wave, Dark Wave, Cold Wave, I told him to check out Yoko's "Don't Count The Waves" :) I don't know if that was on a single though!
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:02am Marmalade Kitty:

The whales an dolphins are diggin, they KNOW whatch mean Yoko love!
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:02am maximilian:

  Sun. 10/30/11 2:04am Marmalade Kitty:

thats quite a pronunciation, Maximilian
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:06am Marmalade Kitty:

any Band of Gypsies, Joe?
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:07am Matt from Springfield:

Record exec: "Hey, you hear of these Mamas and the Papas? They're becoming huge! I just heard their song "12:30 (Young Girls Are Coming To The Canyon)". You need to put out something like them!"
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:09am Matt from Springfield:

Nice! I'm jumpin' on Jango's Carousel.
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:11am Joe McG:

@Kitty: I'm failing you this evening, I don't have anything you've requested....
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:13am Marmalade Kitty:

all good,Joe :)
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:17am Marmalade Kitty:

  Sun. 10/30/11 2:17am Joe McG:

  Sun. 10/30/11 2:21am Marmalade Kitty:

your digits are safe :) I hear DJ's who dion't meet the quoter are subject to having fingers cut off..! a bit harsh but I understand.. :)
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:23am Joe McG:

Actually, it's not the fingers.
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:24am Matt from Springfield:

@MKitty: At least Joe will have three digits left! Better than those blokes who only earned two digits! :)
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:25am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, another Colin Blunstone solo single! Are these yours, or the station's?
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:26am Joe McG:

Mine, all mine!
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:27am Marmalade Kitty:

Any Hendrix? You know Foxey Lady must have blown the socks offa everybody in the 60's
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:29am Matt from Springfield:

Glad someone's playing them! And late 60s Chiffons--excellent!

@MKitty: Jimi had well known albums (Are You Experienced?, Electric Ladyland..) really not sure if he had any singles, or at least high charting singles.
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:29am Joe McG:

Only one I have is the one you can't play on the radio, "Gloria." He says bad words.
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:30am Matt from Springfield:

Oh Jimi, Oh Patti, why does anyone who covers "Gloria" have to add bad words to it? :)
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:32am Marmalade Kitty:

  Sun. 10/30/11 2:32am Matt from Springfield:

Hey, I heard this somewhere before! This is good!
Now Joe, can you properly tell apart: Barbara George, Barbara Lewis, Barbara Lynn, and Barbara Mason? :)
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:33am Matt from Springfield:

You and WFMU could help write a "60s DJ SAT"; takers would have to match songs by all those Barbaras, all the Bobbys, short answer responses for the bands that did certain One Hit Wonder titles... ;)
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:37am Marmalade Kitty:

Snow in autumn - Dry spring..?
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:39am Marmalade Kitty:

John Lennon would be well chuffed/proud with the guys giving it large at the occupy demos..!
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:41am Matt from Springfield:

@MKitty: Oh man, I miss him! He would be writing and performing songs especially for Occupy demos were he still around!
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:44am Joe McG:

I bet you he would!
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:44am Marmalade Kitty:

I believe john would say spirit is mosty important!!!!!!
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:45am Matt from Springfield:

I'm glad David Peel seems to be doing a song for OWS though, have to check out these links later...

Why hasn't Clay Pigeon found him? He interviewed him at Union Square's "4/20 Pot Day" a few years ago, I wish he had ended up in one of Clay's recent programs!
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:45am Marmalade Kitty:

give us a Lennon 7" Joe?
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:47am bk:

And Stiff discovered Akron Ohio.
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:48am Marmalade Kitty:

Clays interview programmes are invaluable historical source! to otherwise rely on media reports would be very sad
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:49am Matt from Springfield:

You got "Stand By Me"! And couple of Stiff Records 45s too!

I've got Clay's programs saved as podcasts, I recognize their historical importance--and will refer them to anyone as a "primary source" to look at. :)
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:53am Matt from Springfield:

Hey, The Pink Fairies!
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:55am Marmalade Kitty:

  Sun. 10/30/11 2:56am Marmalade Kitty:

  Sun. 10/30/11 2:57am Matt from Springfield:

Jona Lewie?! I didn't know you were allowed to play him in the States! ;)
  Sun. 10/30/11 2:57am Joe McG:

Ha ha ha!
  Sun. 10/30/11 3:00am Matt from Springfield:

Good night Joe! One week a year, Single File takes over the station!

Night, Marmalade Kitty!
  Sun. 10/30/11 3:01am Marmalade Kitty:

Billy bremner Leeds utd.. not! Night Matt, Joe, all sweeties!
  Sun. 10/30/11 3:12am Brian in UK:

Congratulations Joe on all your hard work.
  Sun. 10/30/11 8:38am Joe McG:

Thanks, Brian. Special thank you to Eric from New York who chipped in the last bit for this show. Thanks, Eric!
