Half an hour after todays show starts a man will come and distract me, trying to sell me an electric garage door. I've always wanted an electric garage door and this company have a 70% discount going on, so I might be tempted. I'll have wfmu on in the garage, so any female power ballads about garage doors or garage door salesmen might make it hilariously awkward.

in honor of your successful "green show" last week, and because i can't get that damn song out of my head from episode two (the bicycle episode), i've gotta request ABBA's I Have A Dream (I Believe In Angels). that's kinda power ballady, no?

If you like Black Mirror check out Charlie Brooker's other stuff, he has a great show called Dead Set, which is about a zombie apocalypse from the point of view of everyone in the Big Brother house, it's a bit Twilight Zone-y like Black Mirror, but Brooker also does these weekly 'Screenwipe' programs, where he discusses the news, one off 'GamesWipe' kinds of shows, they all started from his weekly column in the Guardian called Screenwipe which is available in print or online, he's a very funny man, I think I've read every word he's written/published for about 10 years now, this weeks is as good as any

Sacrebleu!! I thought we were going to listen to the Schlammpeitziger's goat song! I've been waiting years for you Ken to play it again for it is inaccessible from the WFMU archives. I think it's called 2-4.

Yes! I call it the goat song because in some part of its lyrics [although it is mostly instrumental] a man says in English 'you do [something] and I'll get the goat". It also says something about "the Casio Beat" and they also say "Schlampeitziger" [so from the begining I knew how to pronounce the name of the band!]. can't you find it as 2 to 4 ? or 2-4. Can't be sure if that's the correct combination of numbers.

It's the most Kennish song of all the Schlammpeitzinger songs you have ever played.

"Schlammpeitziger" is derived from "Schlammpeitzger", which is a mud-fish (Misgurnus), this one here:
  Wed. 1/28/15 11:02am FϢFϢ (:

Last time i requested you that song [about 2 years ago]] I did a little research trying to find a reference page but I quickly realise the band Schlampeitizger appears spelled in so many ways in the WFMU archives that it took me a while to frame it, but alas, didn't bookmarked. I'll try again .

Indeed, it's the most Kennish song of them all.

According to WFMU archives it is also found in Sonig Irregular Vol. 1

It deserves to be in the top 20 starred songs.
