G'evening Joe!
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:10am Joe McG:

  Sun. 11/6/11 12:11am Parq:

  Sun. 11/6/11 12:11am Joe McG:

Hey, Kitty! Hey, ?. Love those Mysterians.
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:12am Kenzo:

Good luck to y'all with the two ones.
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:13am Joe McG:

Hey, Parq, hey Kenzo. Ones AND zeroes, bring 'em on.
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:24am The Ronettes:

He never could keep that hot pastrami to himself...
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:24am cheri:

g'morning joe,,, how was your halloween last week? super show so far,,btw did you bring "the cake" with you this morning??
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:25am The Ronettes:

  Sun. 11/6/11 12:25am Joe McG:

More Phil Spector jokes, please!
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:27am Sue:

Hey Joe! How's it going? Do you happen to have any Go-Betweens hangin around?
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:28am Joe McG:

Maybe, Sue!
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:28am Sue:

woo hoo! i'll take a maybe :)
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:31am cheri:

no tunes by "the cake" tonight joe?
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:32am Joe McG:

Sorry, cheri, I don't play the Cake anymore.
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:33am Sue:

damn, this track is great, what an intro
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:37am Sue:

yay! extended version!
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:41am tomB:

Thanks for playing "Flowerpot" Irrationally, it failed to make the cut in the Best of the Marcels LP purchased for $6@thFMU table last wk, tho listed in the detailed discography. Thanks for making sure I get a bonus cut!
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:42am Joe McG:

No prob, Tom! Thanks for tunin' in! I'll talk about the Record Fair next mic break....
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:43am Joe McG:

Anybody out there get to the Record Fair? I know it was rough this year weather-wise.
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:48am T-Zero:

Morning! No record fair for me, unfortunately. Too far to travel. Nice to have extra time with you tonight though.
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:50am Joe McG:

Aw, thanks, T-Zero, that's nice to hear. Even some folks who lived really close couldn't get there on Saturday because of that weird snow storm.
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:52am T-Zero:

We lucked out and didn't get it, fortunately. At first, I thought we would, but ended up with just rain instead.
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:52am T-Zero:

Did you lose power, Joe? If so, have it back yet?
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:54am Joe McG:

No, I lucked out. Most of the people where I live still don't have power. For some reason, my block was spared. I guess so I could play my Record Fair purchases. Thanks, God!
  Sun. 11/6/11 12:56am T-Zero:

Glad to hear that you're ok. Don't quite understand, though, why so many are still without power. The storm shouldn't have been *that* bad to knock out so many for so long.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:00am Joe McG:

Yeah, all the trees everywhere, kinda shocking.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:03am G:

standard time. (as opposed to daylight saving time)
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:08am cosmic matrix:

not paranoia. truth. HAARP.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:09am Marmalade kitty:

we need to know when the aliens arrive
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:10am tomB:

more cowbell
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:11am Joe McG:

I'm tuning in next Wednesday at 2 to see what the aliens really want from us. I'll share my Rolling Stones records with them.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:12am Barry:

Shh, it's optay ecretsay.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:12am Marmalade kitty:

I love Bill Hicks alien/ufo routine
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:13am cosmic matrix:

so the thing is, for those who aren't warned about this thing (most of the USA) they'll think it's a real emergency, if they don't say it's a test that is... it could be like the war of the worlds broadcast...
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:14am cosmic matrix:

alien connection.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:15am cosmic matrix:

by the way RIP mikey welsh -- i was just at his memorial
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:15am Marmalade kitty:

I love gram parson coool slow version
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:16am cosmic matrix:

great snare sound
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:17am cosmic matrix:

i think they should turn it up though
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:17am Marmalade kitty:

brilliant innit!
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:18am cosmic matrix:

  Sun. 11/6/11 1:20am david:

jon and robin... a little bit country... a little bit rock n roll.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:25am Joe McG:

It's my Donny and Marie set.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:26am Ms. Dash:

It's like listening at the telephone for he heavens, Joe McG.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:29am Joe McG:

Hey, Ms. Dash! @cosmic: Sorry to hear about Mikey Welsh. Nice paintings and so young.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:30am tomB:

great set concept
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:30am Derek in DC:

If she was going to do proper country, Ms. McColl should have changed "chip shop" to "diner" or "Winn Dix(ie)." Too late now. So sad.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:32am david:

oddly apropos these knitters
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:32am Joe McG:

@Derek: She also sings about a Seville instead of a Chevy. The song probably predated her first trip to the U.S. is my guess.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:35am Marmalade kitty:

just Kirsty McColls amusing way of appropriating Britishness into the mix.. We miss her
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:45am Joe McG:

I agree, Kitty, a great loss!
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:46am david:

a little vanilla fudge in these sound foundations... I like it.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:47am Joe McG:

@David: Yeah, like a funky Latin Vanilla Fudge!
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:56am Marmalade kitty:

hehe.. Ian Dury another diamond!
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:56am Joe McG:

Do you know Adrian Mole, Kitty?
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:56am Julie:

  Sun. 11/6/11 1:58am Marmalade kitty:

lol yes!
Hi Julie!
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:58am Julie:

Oh boy I come in late and I miss talk about aliens? I'm totally lost
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:58am Derek in DC:

One of the local PBS stations used to show Adrian Mole just before Doctor Who.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:58am Julie:

Hi Kitty!
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:59am Barry:

EAS = Enter Aliens Suddenly
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:00am tomB:

re straight A's, I'm glad I got the Marcels, even if they're 33 &1/3
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:00am Joe McG:

@Derek: I've never seen it, but I've read a couple of the books. Did you hear Ian's theme song? Or was that for a film?
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:01am T-Zero:

I've never seen it either. Don't think it was on PBS where I am.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:01am david:

hello again 1 am
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:01am G:

Kenzo's coding worked -- no glitch just now...
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:02am Julie:

I've never listened to WFMU during a time change. How does it work? You & Mary split the hour?
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:02am Joe McG:

Hooray for Kenzo!
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:03am 12539:

Maybe Single File should END at 1:30 since it started late.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:03am Julie:

Who does like extra single file?
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:04am Marmalade kitty:

me! me!
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:04am Joe McG:

@12539: My thinking exactly!
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:06am Marmalade kitty:

I'm having a ate late supper! breakupper
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:07am Joe McG:

@Julie: Yeah! I do an extra half hour and then Mary does the same. Kinda nice, like doing those 4 hour shows back in the day!
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:09am Derek in DC:

Joe, the "Pandora" song was the opening theme for the Adrian Mole Britcom.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:10am Joe McG:

@Derek: Was that the one showing on PBS?
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:10am Julie:

I missed out on the 4-hour show. At first it was like, How would I fill that? Now it's yeah, I'd love another hour!
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:11am david:

what a song title
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:11am Joe McG:

@Julie: You and Clay made up for it by doing a 36 hour show.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:12am Julie:

It was only 17 hours!
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:12am david:

That is true, and Clay had repeat songs.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:14am Marmalade kitty:

only 17 hours? :) nice to have a li'l extra extended show! thanks Joe
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:15am Joe McG:

@david: You can fit a lot of Starcastle in 17 hours!
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:15am 12539:

I hear the Clay/Julie Irene Weekend Box Set has an additional 5 hours of outtakes.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:16am david:

lol Joe
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:17am Derek in DC:

Yes, the same... and the full name of the PBS show was the same as the first book (The Secret Diary...)
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:18am cosmic matrix:

speaking of drums sounds WOW
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:18am Julie:

@12549 yes it's all the off-air fighting and shoving each other in the hallway
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:18am cosmic matrix:

  Sun. 11/6/11 1:20am david:

  Sun. 11/6/11 1:25am Shower:

In France, I'm just a big douche.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:28am Joe McG:

That's what she said.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:30am Marmalade kitty:

  Sun. 11/6/11 1:49am T-Zero:

Speaking of fireworks... MK, were you around the playlist for Bill Mac's show when the guy in Australia was talking about their fireworks? There was a glitch for the show and they all fired off at the same time.
  Sun. 11/6/11 1:49am Joe McG:
