OK, it's not really a party. Just a radio show. But imagine!
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:21am sweet cheri:

don't worry joe let's imagine it's a radio party!!
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/11/12 12:22am Joe McG:

I'll play sleepytime music later, but right now I'm feeling pretty lively!
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:26am sweet cheri:

joe, i'm lost in music also!
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:28am Ken From Hyde Park:

Tonight's selections are kind of similar to Evan "Funk" Davies' Indepen-dance Day show.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/11/12 12:36am Joe McG:

Hi, Ken. I once did a set of calypso on my show and someone said I was sounding just like Irwin's "Muriel's Closet."
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:39am sweet cheri:

i'm sorry joe but i have to head out now but i'l still listen on radio,, night all!!

Hey, Mary! Whose show am I doing now?
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:41am T-Zero:

Evening, Joe McG: Hope your 45 collection remained high & dry. Just noted the schedule page date is now extended to June 2013... due to financial crises did Ken decide to keep everyone where they are, or will it change later?

Howdy, Mary Wing!
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:43am amEdeo:

Is that good ol' Joey McGasket I hear out there in the place we senior wrinkles call "radio land"?
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:43am T-Zero:

Zelig! Good word!... had to look it up lol
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/11/12 12:44am Joe McG:

@T-Zero: Ken has so much to deal with right now that switching up the schedule is probably the last thing he wants to think about! It's also nice if all the people you folks are pledging to remain on the schedule for a bit...
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:44am Mary Wing:

You're channeling Lamin and Rupture,I'd say.

Hi T-Zero, how's the day been? You never saw the movie Zelig?
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:45am T-Zero:

Day was wonderful... sunny and in the 70s... Nope! Never saw Zelig.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/11/12 12:46am Joe McG:

Hey, amEdeo! Yes, McGasket at your service. I think I've blown a gasket at the moment.

I'm here listening my friend!

Chop Scott is in the house! Hooray!
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/11/12 12:48am Joe McG:

@Mary: I'm going to try to go Terre T before the 45s start. We'll see how that goes. I suddenly feel....funny.
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:51am Chop Scott:

As ever...
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:52am T-Zero:

@Joe McG: That's what I figured... Thanks! Was just curious :D

Glad Ken did the state of the station, I caught it in the archive
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:53am amEdeo:

Well I am DIGGING the gasket blowery! Dancing along in my mind.

Hey Chop Scott, I think we have spoken on my cell phone right? (If not WE WILL ONE DAY! I HAVE FORESEEN IT!!)
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:54am Mary Wing:

Chop Scott lives! I was afraid that you were swept out to sea; are you okay?
  Sun. 11/11/12 12:59am amEdeo:

  Sun. 11/11/12 12:59am Chop Scott:

I am fine, VERY lucky for once.
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:11am Matt from Springfield:

Joe McG and Daniel Blumin and Warm Soda in the house!
Wish I had some warm soda to offer you, but afraid I only have a cold drink with me here...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 11/11/12 1:13am D. Blumin:

A cold one! Mighty nice of you to offer, Matt!
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:15am Julie:

hey, it's rock music
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:15am Matt from Springfield:

Let's toast to cold drinks!
Unfortunately we haven't reached the point where we can share food and drink through the playlist yet; but down the road, we might be able to upgrade the AccuPlaylist, into the SnackuPlaylist! :D
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:17am Matt from Springfield:

Hey, it's Little Miss Queen of Darkness! Hi Julie!
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:18am Holly in NC:

Hi Joe & all! Just got here, sorry I missed opening. Looking forward to rest of show, will likely be quiet as tuckered.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/11/12 1:20am Joe McG:

Hey, Julie! Hey, Holly! Hey, Matt! Don't worry, Holly, I'm getting mellow in the last hour. It will lull you to sleep!
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:20am Julie:

howdy Matt! HI holly, hello DB and JM
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:20am Matt from Springfield:

Hiya Holly!

  Sun. 11/11/12 1:27am sweet cheri:

so what's up julie & holly?
Avatar Sun. 11/11/12 1:28am amEdeo:

@Matt: Oh my. You are talking my language! The actualization of SnackuPlaylist technology would mark the end of my non-WFMU (or at least playlist) life. Mayhaps such things are best left to speculation... mayhaps people were not meant to know such wonders as the electronic sharing of snack foods.
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:30am Julie:

joe's angels!
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:30am Matt from Springfield:

Mayhaps, :) humankind will just have to wait until they are ready for this powerful technology, and then will realize that it was right in front of them all along!

Coming home from a rockabilly show and getting lost
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:33am Julie:

hey, Meghan, get lost!
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:33am meghan:

Or I should say Jeff is and I am stuck in the back. He wasn't paying attention

Avatar Sun. 11/11/12 1:36am amEdeo:

Wow. I did not have to solve any math questions before posting those last comments. Sorry everyone, I feel like the comments board heard me talking about becoming one with it... and now I am like the Keanu Reaves of the comments board.

  Sun. 11/11/12 1:39am Holly in NC:

@AmEdeo - mobile wfmu doesn't require math...
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:40am Matt from Springfield:

The Three Degrees! Fred Sanford and his crazy buddies approve!
And that 100 Proof Aged In Soul had some great bass!
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:40am Julie:

this sounds like a game show
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:41am Matt from Springfield:

I'd like to post something else to amEdeo... :)
@Joe: Just this week I heard of a soul group called The Esquires with a song "Get On Up" from '67--they remind me of The Intruders. Ever hear of them?
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/11/12 1:41am Joe McG:

Ha ha, I didn't realize that those bands all had numbers in their names! I love playing records like this.
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:41am Destroit:

Haha Julie, no doubt. It's ridiculous, cracking me up.
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:43am Matt from Springfield:

WFMU--your source (on more than one occasion!) for Every Mother's Son's non-hits!
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:43am sweet cheri:

@Destroit: Not too many game-show sounding songs about morning sex! (At least not ones that Richard Dawson didn't sing.)
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:46am sweet cheri:

ohh julie i heard your show on archive the other day,,it was wonderful!!!
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:46am meghan:

I was talking about 70's game shows on my show this past week. And their amazing microphones
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:48am Matt from Springfield:

WOW, mid-70s discofied Johnny Rivers! New to me!
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 11/11/12 1:48am Joe McG:

@Meghan: Do you mean those really long slim ones?
Avatar Sun. 11/11/12 1:48am amEdeo:

Yeah! What happened to all those microphones?
  Sun. 11/11/12 1:50am meghan:

Those are the ones! Really long with a ball of foam on top. I think it would be great to see bands perform with those!

Hello Joe, Matt, amEdeo. Beautiful start to the day here. Not a sky in the cloud.

@T-Zero: Yes, it's cool, right? An outtake of early versions from this UK greatest hits collection.
  Sun. 11/11/12 2:44am T-Zero:

The outtakes are really different from the stuff actually released in the 60-70s, I think. Don't you?
  Sun. 11/11/12 2:45am T-Zero:

I mean... the out takes sound more like his later works.
