Listener comments!

It is unforgivable that I have still not seen this film. Stills and GIFs come up so often in my Tumblr stream. Plus it's, what, 20 or 25% of John Cazale's filmography? Which is itself sad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 3:05pm Doug Day Afternoon:

You still have time, James!

That's a great movie, @listener james. Hi, @Doug!

Music to rob banks by

You've got the idea, doca!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 5:50pm Gary:

I thought "bank robbery" meant when the banks rob us. Does it have an earlier meaning?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 5:51pm Doug Schulkind:

@Gary
Sorry, we are going to have to charge you a "snark fee" for that comment.

Thanks for staying up late with me, davex. I'll make some hot cocoa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 5:56pm davex:

Thanks, Doug! I just popped open something else myself, in fact.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 5:57pm davex:

What's the snazzy number playing right now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 5:58pm Doug Schulkind:

@davex
This is Conjunto Balambossa performing "Fiz o Bobão." From 1966.

Haha that means "I've played the fool", @Doug

Perfect, I've been listening to newer Brazilian stuff the last hour or so...

Act natural, this show has a gub.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:04pm Doug Schulkind:

You beat me to it, LJFW. I was gonna say,

Careful, this show is loaded!

Virgil Starkwell is listening to this show in jail, with an iPhone baked into a huge loaf of bread.

The one with the file app, no doubt.

Doug Day Afternoon :-) Love it! And such a wonderful movie.
Sad missed Merle.
Glad here!

Mac Dre, "Punk Police"?

Don't know that Ashley, Dean. Can you hum a few bars? Can you hum a few behind bars?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:25pm Gary:

This is great -- reminds me a bit of Milkman of Human Kindness guy, what was his name again?

hey Doug and everyone - massive internet issues past few days
Avatar Tue. 12/16/14 6:30pm ndbob:

hopefully I can stay connected
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:30pm listener james from westwood:

This must be John Carpenter Day. Not only did you have the Escape from New York music, but I read a discourse on the art of swearing in Carpenter's The Thing earlier today, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:30pm Doug Schulkind:

Sorry to hear it, ndbob. Glad you're here. Hope you can hear!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:30pm listener james from westwood:

Hang in there, ndbob! Add another potato to the impromptu Internet antenna!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:31pm Doug Schulkind:

There are no coincidences, Listener James.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:31pm Doug Schulkind:

This next selection qualifies for this show's theme, but barely.
Avatar Tue. 12/16/14 6:31pm Holly in NC:

I will be sorely disappointed if we don't hear Mojo Nixon & Skid Roper's "I Hate Banks".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:32pm Doug Schulkind:

But do the actually ROB the banks, Holly?
  Tue. 12/16/14 6:33pm Dean:

I like to think of it as taking out a criminally low interest loan.
Avatar Tue. 12/16/14 6:34pm doca:

Stealing the future!
Avatar Tue. 12/16/14 6:34pm Holly in NC:

@Doug: Yes. Opening verse:
I hate banks...
I just can't stand 'em.
Gimme a shovel & man I'll plant 'em.
Six feet under that's where they belong...
I hate banks is the name of this song.
I think I'll rob myself one or two...
Yeah I hate banks, yeah, how 'bout you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:36pm Doug Schulkind:

Wish I could rush it onto the air for you, Holly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:36pm Carmichael:

I have a few cuts by a band called Cops 'n' Robbers, but they don't mention banks specifically.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:38pm Doug Schulkind:

I reluctantly chose to leave out Bo Diddley's "Cops and Robbers" for that very reason.
Avatar Tue. 12/16/14 6:38pm Holly in NC:

Meanwhile so psyched about The Ex!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:39pm Doug Schulkind:

I will keep that Ex track in the back of mind for when I do my hour-long Sperm Special!
Avatar Tue. 12/16/14 6:39pm Holly in NC:

@Doug - Very politic way of saying "no way in hell Holly, I hate that song" :-) xo
  Tue. 12/16/14 6:39pm Dean:

Do songs about robbing savings and loans or credit unions count? Are there any?
  Tue. 12/16/14 6:40pm Jeff g. Where the money is:

hi from Beantown. Love love love Dig Day. I wanna go to Montana, too.

Didn't Sabbath do a tune about FDIC protection of depositor assets?
  Tue. 12/16/14 6:41pm Jeff g. Where the money is:

I have a sadz tho cuz the FMU app keeps quitting on me. Anyone else having similar trouble?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:42pm Carmichael:

Jeff, my iphone app is working AOK. Maybe it's your wireless connection?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:44pm listener james from westwood:

Otto: no apparent relation to Baldur von Schirach.
  Tue. 12/16/14 6:45pm Jeff g. Where the money is:

Don't think so, Carmichael, as I'm currently streaming via pop-up (on an iPhone). Deleted & redownloaded the app, but it keeps quitting... Hm.
Avatar Tue. 12/16/14 6:46pm Holly in NC:

Can't speak to app as left phone at home, but the dang pop-up player won't open on my computer! I blame the latest Firefox, Mozilla is getting mighty paternal in their efforts to protect user privacy. Pissing me off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:46pm Doug Schulkind:

@Jeff G
Don't have mine handy. Listener James baked my iPhone into a load of Russian pumpernickel for Virgil Starkwell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:46pm Doug Schulkind:

If I didn't play Serge & Bridget, you guys would have flayed me!

App working now! Whee!

Doug, I would have felt ... robbed.

I played this next snippet on my show commemorating the anniversary of...

...Attica.

And THAT's the line I've seen in a bunch of the GIFs I mentioned above.

You're onto something big. Mike from MPLS!

@northguineahills
Honestly, I could do an entire show of B&C covers.
Avatar Tue. 12/16/14 6:52pm Joe McG:

Hey, Doug, did you see the documentary "The Dog" yet? He was pretty annoyed about Pacino saying "Attica" in the movie of his life! (He never said it.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:53pm Doug Schulkind:

Earl Durand wasn't really much of a bank robber. His life ended during a hamfisted bank robbery, though. So he qualifies.
Avatar Tue. 12/16/14 6:54pm Monica:

doug, your show has me thinking about pens on short ball bearing chains and deposit slips. great theme - and tunes to boot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:54pm Carmichael:

This sounds ilke Ed Sullivan.

I haven't seen it, Joe McG. That's the film about the real Brooklyn bank robber John Wojtowicz?
Avatar Tue. 12/16/14 6:56pm Joe McG:

@Doug: That's the guy! A fun watch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:56pm Doug Schulkind:

Charlie Brown (Charles Artman) was a regular hanger-outer and street singer at Berkeley during the free-speech movement days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:57pm listener james from westwood:

@jeff g: Yes, was humming the same thing during that earlier track. Riding along w/ a giant sack labeled SWAG. Which makes me think it was full of FMU DJ premiums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:57pm Doug Schulkind:

Hey John:

ATTICA! ATTICA! ATTICA!

Take that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/16/14 6:59pm Gary:

No funny parting joke -- but thank you for the show, Doug!

You can bank on this show.

Sweet tribute, Doug! We've dug your phone out of the bread, safe and sound, as promised. Also, corned beef on Russian pumpernickel for all!!
