Listener comments!

  9:04am Ken:

The flooding in Hoboken and Jersey City made me enormously late today, so let's just say I'm a lot more receptive to requests than usual today...
  9:12am Vicki:


(how's about some classic mashups?)
  9:12am John from Oslo:

To bad they didn''t make Toyota Prius amphibious . Howsabout Bugotak's take on Deep Purple 's Highway Star? heh...
  9:13am Negator:

Reading Krautrock by Julian Cope currently. Great book on the movement.
  9:16am Listener Dave:

My request: Humpaa!!! Humpaa!!
  9:17am Ken:

Yes, it was my prius that did me in today. The water in Hoboken was almost up to the car window in places. I ditched the Prius, went home and grabbed my bicycle. couldnt bring any records with me or prepare at all once i got here..
  9:21am Vivian:

What about that UltraBlondie mashup from long ago? I think it includes Television and the Stooges. Another suggestion is live Television.
  9:23am Parq:

That digital skipping sounded the way my mind feels. It's that kinda morning.
  9:28am Pamela:

What a morning! Though I didn't need to mind visual of you in your underwear in the rain.
  9:28am Parq:

<listening to your monologue> Okay, so I was wrong, I *don't* know how you feel . . .
  9:29am Sarah:

Just wanted to express sympathy for your hellish morning. No requests, unfortunately; sorry I can't help.
  9:29am Pamela:

Request: something from Grease. :-)
You could always do a "Seven Second Delay" move and replay the Jesus Christ Superstar set.
  9:30am spacehoof:

im guessing that the special album that Ken pulled out is:
Tubular Bells
(or maybe of these)
  9:31am Kat:

Senor Coconut, "Riders on the Storm"
  9:32am nh_dave:

Scary that there is another dave in the world that is a fan of humppa...

I have been really enjoying 'big blood' when it is played on others set. They are from portland maine and I can't find a lick of music from them anywhere so fmu (as usual) is the only source.

ooioo is good too however :)
  9:33am ?:

of course, im kidding...
is it a lloyd cole album?
  9:35am Ken:

Close Spacehoof! But neither one is it.
  9:36am Christopher (London):

bad start to the day Ken. Lets hope it gets better - lets hear some mice parade (OOIOO reminds me a little of it.

I guess the album ken has ready is one by NEU!
  9:36am John from Oslo:

My guess on the mystery album is; something by Neil Young ... please let it not be "Trans" or "Everybody's Rockin'"
  9:38am Doldrums:

How bout some Hako/after dinner shit to finish up the Yoshimi
  9:41am north guinea hills:

damn, no L train, so I ran a mile to the M train, only to find it slooooowwww, and crowded. then went for the F train at the Delancey stop, and the whole platform was overflowing.... finally got a lost midget G train in Manhattan, and was only one hour late for work.

so, my requests are either georgia satellites/iannis xenakis/or skream
  9:53am Doldrums:

Nice! Now throw in a Speedy West curveball
  9:54am Wendy:

My psychic request already granted - anything with tabla on it
  9:57am Ken:

Working on those requests.. keep 'em comin' please! No to the Neu and Neil Young guesses. The featured "desperation album side" todaqy will be an album i have played before but never in its entirety. I will probably play only one side of it.
  10:00am Listener Dave:

t.a.t.u? Man you could slow that one down so much you'd kill an hour...
  10:02am NEGATOR:

  10:05am Doldrums:

Hows about "Radio World" by Von LMO?
  10:08am Vivian:

Thank you for Blondie vs Mr. Trick. Since you asked for more suggestions, how about Laura Veirs and Lali Puna?
I hope your day progresses towards the dry and sewage free side.
  10:11am Listener Dave from NH:

Since you played an 18 minute track last week (that was last week's show, right?), why not go for the gusto and pull out a 20-ish minute track this week - Polmo Polpo's cover of "Kiss Me Again and Again"? Because it's a fantastic song and I can't get enough of it.
Or Steve Reich's "It's Gonna Rain"?
  10:16am drew:

Hi Ken. I'm stuck at home enjoying your show as the subways are still not running. I may have to take a city bus for the first time in decades. Maybe you can play Frankie Smith's "Double Dutch Bus" before I take my chances on the streets again? Thanks.
  10:16am NEGATOR:

  10:17am efd:

I suggest "The Devil Glitch" by Chris Butler, clocking in at an unprepared-DJ-friendly 70 minutes! And, it's also really good!
Bonus: there's even a break 1hr in for the legal ID! (Although I guess that doesn't help at this point, but it's still a cool idea)
  10:20am reuben:

Your show at home is even better what a treat with real make realize that I am on the edge of a speeding rock headed for eternal blossoming or maybe just down some proverbial bowling lane....or maybe it's just the coffee mix
  10:20am Ken:

Polmo Polpo sounds interesting - we dont have it on CD though - is it on a comp, or on vinyl? That Steve Reich piece is one of my most hated pieces of music/audio of all time. Perhaps because I've heard it in its entirety like 20 times over the years...
  10:22am Mickey Mephistopheles:

OK...everyone will think I'm corny but I'm requesting it anyway. "Union Made" as performed by the Old Crow Medicine Show. BTW I'm curious as to what you're going to do with those "Hello Sweden, Albania, Japan, etc" greetings from last week.
  10:26am NEGATOR:

  10:29am Ken:

Hey Buz - If you're listening or reading - can other listeners have a look at your proposed playlist redesign? If so, post the URL... if not, I will post it next week.
  10:31am Listener Dave from NH:

I've got it on CD (Discogs has it listed as a mini-CD here ( ) , but mine's a full-size CD, just a single track) but it apparently came out on vinyl too ( ).
Polmo Polpo and Arthur Russell are two great tastes that taste great together.
The Reich piece is fantastic as used in DJ Food's "Raiding the 20th Century" (thanks for the link to that once upon a time, by the way!) but in its entirety, yeah - it is a lot much.
Hooray for Dinosaur!
  10:34am Doldrums:

Dish out some Skip Spence. (No Von Lmo?)
  10:34am Lewis Gilbert:

  10:40am Brandon:

Its flooding up there, really? Their ain't a cloud in the sky in DC. Well, not that I am aware of anyway with all the lung choking haze and hallucination inducing heat. Could very well be doing anything....
  10:42am Sean Padilla:

Am I the only person who listens to Wire's "Send" WAAAY more than I do their first three albums?
  10:45am NEGATOR:

  10:45am Ann Arbor Doug:

I want to hear something that reminds me of the Audio Kitchen. Interpret that how you like.
  10:46am Holly Far:

Youre not alone, Send is their best record EVER.
  10:53am Doctor B:

A T.Rex cover? Von Lmo too? You are definitely the man!

Hope the flooding in J.C. isn't too bad. Up here in Broome County, NY, some towns got tuirned into bathtubs during last year's floods.
  10:54am Chris:

Track 3 from Future Lanuage is called Outside of Time.

Don't know if you found out yet though.

Thanks Ken!
  10:55am Gigantor:

Stuck on Train this morning--thought about having to resort to cannibalism if we could not get out. Please play Morricone's Cannibal!
  10:56am Ann Arbor Doug:

I only just started listening to 154/Chairs/Flag again after a long period of Send fixation.
  10:57am NEGATOR:

  11:02am brian:

A Wizard! Great to hear -- Now I want to set my turntable back up!
  11:02am listener monica:

excellent choice, a wizard a true star. i'm listening while i do dishes this morning, (unlike usually from my car.) so i can hang out and listen to the whole thing. i didn't even know it was ken this morning, it's not his usual style. but i'm having a good time, and i hope my garage didn't flood.
  11:16am NEGATOR:

  11:18am Ken:

That was the edit (of "the shit hits the fan") on the radio promo version of this album - I didn't make the edit myself.
  11:35am Christopher Fedail:

Request? The Crayon Fields "Do it First"

please, thanks Ken
  11:38am Pat:

That's funny, the online version of the New York Times isn't an inch and a half thinner.
  11:39am Listener Dave:

Why oh why did they shrink the Times?
Why oh why woule he sell my shorts?
Why oh why would you cut off the ears of a teddy bear?
Why oh why?
  11:44am negator:

spcs performs sept 8th @ ZONE:Chelsea Center for the Arts, NY
  11:51am Edzo:

Howzabout "My Sister Stole My Woman"
by Andre Williams
  11:52am jason:

this song is amazin! i am currently dancing like a moonshiner
  11:58am north guinea hills:

dug the postal workers in ghana
  12:00pm Vicki:

it's actually the bonus track from Honeysuckle Boulevard, not Perpetuum Mobile. Download it all from the fmu blog.
Vicki - People Like Us / DO or DIY
  10:38pm listener jeff:

i miss listening live
  1:58pm Marie:

Natural disaster brings out the best in you (or was it the raw sewage...).
