good morning Joe
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 12:08am Joe McG:

Hello, friends. Hits!
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:12am dan in falls church VA:

i don't like hits. i like only deep cuts. j/k
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 12:13am Joe McG:

I'm with you, Dan. Only the most obscure songs on this program.
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:19am northguineahills:

Are the Dow Jones and the Industrials contemporary? Can't tell b/c it's a Liz Berg Premium.
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:19am Chop Scott:

JOE! My Friend--listening!!
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 12:22am Joe McG:

@NGH: Nope, they're oldsters. Early 80s, I think! @Chop Scott: Hello, my friend!
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:23am 12539:

Dow Jones were from the early or mid 80s, from Indiana.
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:24am dan in falls church VA:

thx McG. not only are the cuts obscure, the artists are, at least from my perch. so far the only artist of which i was already aware is gang o' four! that never happens.
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:24am northguineahills:

They sounded early 80s, but you can never tell w/ WFMU premiums. Thanks again! keep kicking the sounds the rest of the night! Salud!
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:24am dan in falls church VA:

and i have dug it ALL.
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 12:25am Joe McG:

@Dan: Thanks. I'm going to play somebody very familiar soon!
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:26am T-Zero:

This is obscure even for obscure ... Love it!
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:29am MAtt:

  Sun. 9/9/12 12:29am whomp ass:

Hi Joe. I tried to stay up but fading fast. About to sleep watch the theramin documentary on netflicks...have you seen it?

Keep up the good work!
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 12:30am Joe McG:

@MAtt: It was!
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:30am T-Zero:

  Sun. 9/9/12 12:30am dan in falls church VA:

hey whomp, what's the title of the theremin doc?
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:32am dan in falls church VA:

I'm going to drink a cup of coffee just so I can stay up for a little more of this.
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:32am whomp ass:

Theramin: An Electric Odyssey
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:33am T-Zero:

@dan: Sounds like a good idea to me, I'll join you
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 12:33am Joe McG:

Whomp Ass, so nice to see you! I have seen that! It's great to sleep to!
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:34am dan in falls church VA:

either that, or shoot a fat load of meth and drive up to the station just to drop in and say hi! j/k
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:34am dan in falls church VA:

thx whomp!!!
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:34am whomp ass:

Electronic not electric

I came for the Gang of Four but I stayed for the X Ray Pop.
Hi Joe!
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 12:36am Joe McG:

I hope no one got hit by a tornado. Hey, IED! I saw you at the end of DB on his PL.
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:37am dan in falls church VA:

Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 12:55am Joe McG:

Don't ask me what a munchin' session is. I'm very afraid to ask.
  Sun. 9/9/12 12:58am dan in falls church VA:

  Sun. 9/9/12 12:59am dan in falls church VA:

  Sun. 9/9/12 1:03am T-Zero:

  Sun. 9/9/12 1:08am dan in falls church VA:

  Sun. 9/9/12 1:09am dan in falls church VA:

I totally Feel the Real.
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 1:12am Joe McG:

There should be a funk band called Donut Shop Dark.
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:12am dan in falls church VA:

  Sun. 9/9/12 1:13am T-Zero:

Night, dan
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 1:13am Joe McG:

Happy dreams, Dan! Making it to 1:12 is pretty good!
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:22am Matt from Springfield:

Keep on always thinkin' Joe!
Hello everybody!
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:23am T-Zero:

Morning, Matt
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:23am Matt from Springfield:

You're drinking *coffee* NOW, T-Zero?! Well at least we're keeping each other in balance! (clinks gin to ya :)
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:25am T-Zero:

heh, wanted to try to stay up a bit longer... haven't drunk anything with alcohol for several years now... probably in over a decade come to think of it
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:28am KP:

Hi, joe.
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:29am Matt from Springfield:

Hi TZ! Hi KP!
Great "Hurdy Gurdy", that was.
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 1:34am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt, Hey KP! Hope you both survived the torrential downpour.
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:36am Matt from Springfield:

Love-Itis is a potent, contagious disease in soul music.

Hey Joe! Happy to say your package has arrived, and I am now 100% fulfilled on WFMU premiums! Danke schon, Herr Svagmeister!
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:37am Matt from Springfield:

There was tornadoes to the north of me--Fairfax to Arlington to DC across to Maryland, nasty storms earlier today.
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 1:40am Joe McG:

@Matt: Great, swag is complete! Tornadoes are scary! Esp. the Joe Meek ones.
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:41am T-Zero:

we had storms last night, then about two hours after it was quiet the power went out... very strange
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 1:43am Joe McG:

We lost power here at the station today in something of the same way...
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:44am Matt from Springfield:

Unusually progressive guitar jazz for '69, sounds more like a later '70s George Benson.
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 1:46am Joe McG:

Sorry about that, Matt, I screwed up the date. It's actually 1971. That's when the Jackson 5 did it, so that makes more sense!
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:49am Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: True, though '71 is still kind of ahead of its time, for that style.

What a dramatic (and dare I say French!) single!
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 1:51am Joe McG:

@Matt: If you liked that, check out Catherine Ribeiro's early 70s recordings. Amazing!
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:55am Matt from Springfield:

Will remember that name!
  Sun. 9/9/12 1:58am T-Zero:

I like Mireille Mathieu as well
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:03am Matt from Springfield:

Jersey City Community Book Exchange!
Gooooooo hippie PSAs!! ;)
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:08am Matt from Springfield:

She's just taroting talking points...
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:33am Matt from Springfield:

Great Joe South block!
Since you've played him quite a bit while he was alive, call this not a "tribute", but a "commemorative edition"!
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 2:35am Joe McG:

Well done, Matt! I like it: "The Surface Noise Joe South Commemorative Special."
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:38am Brian in UK:

Hello Joe, Matt, T-Zero & devotees. Now the Moonie man has gone we need a new religion.
Thought of your premium when I heard of Joe South's demise, Joe.
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:38am KP:

I saw joe south at bottom line, song writers series hosted by vin scelsa. Others on stage, Roger Mcguinn, Pete seeger and Ted Hawkins
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:39am T-Zero:

Morning, Brian
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 2:39am Joe McG:

Hey, Brian! Wow, that's quite flattering. @KP: You one lucky man. He didn't play out much after a certain point. What an amazing group of people.
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:40am Matt from Springfield:

Good morning Brian!
Someone pointed out on Moonie's death that, like the Scientologists, the death of a leader doesn't mean the death of a cult.
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:44am KP:

Joe south was incredible. Place was packed so we were standing at side of stage, right next to him. He had a presence about him that was gripping. Down in the Boondocks was the highlight
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:46am KP:

Unfortunately Hawkins, who was also impressive, died like the next week.
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:46am Brian in UK:

There was a good obit in The Times but being Murdoch you have to pay to view digitally.
KP Talking of song writers, we saw Richard Buckner & Doug Paisley last Monday in a 1000 year old church in Guildford. It worked well.
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:51am Matt from Springfield:

Re-working of "All My Trials"!
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:52am KP:

Talking of songwriters, I saw Bob Dylan tonight.
Avatar Sun. 9/9/12 2:57am Joe McG:

Have a great week, everybody! Thanks for listening!
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:58am KP:

Saw Buckner at bottom line too. Sort of lived there for while.
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:58am T-Zero:

Enjoy your week too, Joe. Thanks!
  Sun. 9/9/12 2:58am KP:

See ya Joe!
