The only thing I'd add to your tradition of preferring to spend New Year's at home, Joe McG, would be the traditional meal of corned beef and cabbage

Xylophone fun time, let's get zappa on this thing..
  Sun. 1/1/12 12:51am T-Zero:

To enjoy unemployment
  Sun. 1/1/12 12:52am Joe McG:

  Sun. 1/1/12 12:54am Julie:

happy new year joe!!!
  Sun. 1/1/12 12:54am Joe McG:

@abby: I'm going to try to replay music I really like more often. Sometimes I love a new CD that comes out, play it once, maybe twice, and then it goes away. I want to go back to the ones I really love this year. Do you think this makes for more boring listening?
  Sun. 1/1/12 12:55am Julie:

fxo kurt! happy new year!
  Sun. 1/1/12 12:56am Julie:

late happy new year Kitty!
  Sun. 1/1/12 12:56am Joe McG:

@Julie: Hey, yo! HNY to YOU!
  Sun. 1/1/12 12:57am Joe McG:

Is it too early 2000s for my resolution to be more cowbell?
  Sun. 1/1/12 12:58am Trey Monkeystasio:

waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too early
  Sun. 1/1/12 12:58am T-Zero:

... and whistles, don't forget the whistles
  Sun. 1/1/12 12:58am Manolo:

smell like fireworks ! Opa!
  Sun. 1/1/12 12:58am Trey Monkeystasio:

the CD thing is good though. I think thats something that all FMU djs should adopt. Too many great songs on this station only get played once.
  Sun. 1/1/12 12:59am Trey Monkeystasio:

unless it's the Renegades
  Sun. 1/1/12 1:00am Holly in NC:

To make a decent living working *only* with or for people I like & respect.

That said, to make an honorable as well as decent living this evening, I must go swaddle & comfort a very, very unhappy puppy.

Will catch up on the archives, Joe - this show is great!!!!

Good night, all, and best wishes for 2012.
  Sun. 1/1/12 1:00am Muskegon Mel:

  Sun. 1/1/12 1:12am Trey Monkeystasio:

  Sun. 1/1/12 1:13am Looms:

Okay then... I approve Richard's request.
  Sun. 1/1/12 1:15am DJKurtG:

Everyone is happy about that, even some crazy italians came to a small village and built a bunker (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/20/world/americas/20xul.html?pagewanted=all) Then they realized the world is not going to end ... propably a mayan descend construction worker told them so they got stuck here and now they have kitsch italian restaurant in Merida (the main city) and they sing O Sole Mio every night.
