Freak us out Freedman ; )
  9:04am Ken:

Hello Oslo, Hello W!
  9:05am jonathan:

  9:07am Parq:

  9:08am John from Oslo:

Old school finnish rap:

  9:08am Marc:

But it is still too early.
  9:10am Ken:

Wow, excellent Katzenjammer Kids reference, Parq! My Dad's favorite comic strip!
  9:13am Ken:

Hey, let's try this: submit a link for audio or video here, and I will devote the last half hour of today's show to the links you post here in the comments section. As long as the link you submit works, streams (no downloads!) and is FCC-friendly, I'll play it as long as I can fit it in. But here are a few ground rules: 1) don't submit links to your own band or music; 2) submit short segments (a few minutes); 3) keep them clean and non-yucky 4) one suggestion per person, 5) make sure they stream well!
  9:16am PMD:

I don't know how to snip them shorter... So I'm ineligible?
  9:18am C:

Worst song of 08
  9:20am John from Oslo:

The Finish Old School Rapr didn't stream to well, here's another one - Norwegian:
  9:22am Andrew:

Brief clip of Dubya's inaugural address:
  9:22am Trish:
Anarchy in the UK* by the Duke of Uke -- 2min

* the ukulele version
  9:24am ForeignInternet Listener C:

Sesame Street's Count rendered FCC safe:
  9:25am Torbjorn:

Very bad, not finished, simply made by people not knowing what they are doing music from Norway at
  9:26am Parq:

I dunno if . . . see, it's kinda . . . it . . . aw, what the hell.

  9:27am Tom:

Austrian/Italian herbal blend:
  9:28am Trish:

>streams (no downloads!)

Oh. Well, downloads stream if you have an audio player rigged up with the browser, set to play, so..
  9:28am Michaell:

Even before I saw that Duke of Uke submission super, I immediately thought of this artist:
this is her ukulele version of Jonathan Coulton's "Tom Cruse Crazy"; I was considering her attempts (finally successful) at the same artist's "Mr Fancy Pants"
but I was concerned they might annoy too many people.

David Peel? The world's best anti-drug argument.
  9:29am John from Oslo:

Oh, I changed my mind - forget about the Finnish and Norwegian stuff.

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has a SMASH hit; Fly Me To Handel:
  9:29am Listener Dave:

He deserved the waterboarding just for this, I think.

Nose Test! from "Kids America" on WNYC, sometime in the 80s
  9:37am pmd:

Go go Godzilla!

Unbearable Beef Drink:
  9:42am Ghengis Jung:
  9:43am Vivian:

Morning Ken!
Does Olive & Rooster approve of the Guide Dog Glee Club?
  9:44am Michael:

Bonzo Dog doing "Equestrian Statue" (3:45) and "Little Sir Echo" (2:15)---you might want to just play the first, which includes some good Vivian Stanshall patter, and the second is largely a visual joke:
  9:46am Cribley:

This promotional short for Irving Mills' short-lived Master and Variety labels not only gives us a glimpse of Ellington and his band in the actual Master/Variety studios (as opposed to a soundstage set), but is one of the very few film accounts of how records were recorded, plated and pressed in the long-ago age of analog, shellac and 78 rpm. Narration is provided by pioneer radio announcer Alois Havrilla.

(there are trainwhistles)
  9:48am slugluv1313:

how 'bout a lil old skool Hungarian rap from RAPÜLÓK?
  9:49am ~L:

  9:52am Ken:

Thanks Vicki! This is the problem with those nekkid MP3s!
  9:53am Ghengis Jung:

John Cage mushrooms:
  9:53am Dickdong:

  10:18am John from Oslo:
The Church of the Future
  10:18am Nakedfoul:

These guys are bound for stateside discovery... Go 90s Sweden!
  10:20am tomas:

your contempt for your audience is at an all-time high. I understand why you're self hating.
  10:24am Dickdong (UK):

thomas, are you expressing irony? if not, oh dear me!
Please explain.
  10:24am Bad Ronald:

The Dickies - "Donut Man" -
  10:27am John from Oslo:

Annoy a believer today: Can God make a breakfast so big that he can't eat it himself?
  10:29am Ken:

Dickdong - Methinks that Tomas is referring to the pics on today's playlist but I could be wrong.
  10:30am Will:

Good to have you back Ken - here's a Nollywood film trailer:
  10:32am Ken:

  10:38am St.Even:

hell yes tlc!!!
  10:39am eerie:

I must say, I had quite a scare when I turned on the radio and discovered that between the eternal static was a kid singing about Xenu. What the hell song was that? How It All Began? Creepiest shit ever.
  10:40am Laurie:

I need this "Original Cold Scrubs" song. Please tell me where I can get it. THANK YOU.
  10:43am montreal:

segue to lady june.
  10:44am Ghengis Jung:

Maybe Tomas knows William.
  10:44am Laurie:

Awwww. Bless you.
  10:47am Parq:

Ken, if you're not to immersed in suffering the slings and arrows of outrageous Tomas, can you give us an update on the TaTu movie? Gotta make sure my sked is clear.
  10:49am Bad Ronald:

What pic freaked Tomas?
  10:49am jonathan:

my work computer sucks. can't do anything.

  10:51am Ghengis Jung:

Kasai Allstars AMAZING electrified music from the Congo
  10:53am felipe mujica:

the show is great, what about popchoir berlin! (mongoloid?)

only if you don't have to get up your set....
  10:53am Ghengis Jung:

  10:54am Laurie:

Was that seriously "Paint It Black"? Oh wow.

Also, I have a crush on Philip Seymour Hoffman. Feel free to express bewilderment if you're a guy. If you're a girl, you probably understand where I'm coming from.
  10:56am Ghengis Jung:

Russian Sesame Street - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
  10:57am spaniel:

i know i'm a little late w/this but here's some noise.

slow download (.wav), sorry
  10:57am Laurie:

By the way, can I take back by Rick Astley suggestion:

I would prefer to hear this:
  10:58am Ghengis Jung:

Richard Nixon resignation outtakes
  10:59am Mark Slaughter:

those old farts want to be sedated
  10:59am Laurie:

I take back that last one. I would prefer to hear this:
  11:01am Ghengis Jung:

Message from Xenu - SCIENTOLOGY ROCK!
  11:02am slugluv1313:

thanks for the BARRA BARRA Ken . . . i am home from work to-day; don't have a computer at work so i don't get to hear yer show that often(in real time, at least) and certainly don't get to hear Rachid Taha at 10:45am -- YIPPEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

who is Philip Seymour Hoffman? i am *girl* but i guess i just don't understand . . . i know i could do a search but i think it would be an interesting experiment to have it explained to me BEFORE i do the search . . .
  11:04am slugluv1313:

speaking of *scientology* . . . ISAAC HAYES . . . LIVE . . . PROSPECT PARK . . . Thursday, June 12th, at 5:30pm . . . FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  11:07am Wes:

people of gotta love 'em (reminds me of an old man that used to drive around from store to store in a beat up delivery van, all it said on the back was "SNACKS....gotta love 'em"
  11:08am Bad Ronald:

AHH The Rapture!
  11:08am Seymour:

This one's for Ronald:
  11:11am Bad Ronald:

Aw Shucks!
  11:13am Bad Ronald:

Dirtbombs yeah!
  11:18am (mta) Tony:

In keeping with today's theme, I think it would be a shame to miss the opportunity to play Zappa's "Catholic Girls" from "Joe's Garage," or even more appropriate, from his "You Are What You Is," the suite of songs from "The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing" to "Heavenly Bank Account." All quite religiously appropriate, I think, Ken. Can I get any "yeas" from other listeners? If so, maybe Ken will get out of "the seat."
  11:19am Rococo Pagoda:

That's Steve Hillage
  11:20am Listener Dave:

Tony - I'll give that idea an "amen", except I think it violates the "not getting up for the reqeust" rule.

Plus I'm not sure if Ken is pro or anti-Zappa. We know how he feels about Rush, however.
  11:20am Ken:

Yes, thanks Rococo! I was too busy feeling bitter and clinging to my firearms to bring it up.
  11:21am I meant:

re: Rachid Taha
  11:21am slugluv1313:

Steve Hillage = guy from GONG

*now* i remember who Philip Seymour Hoffman is: guy who portrayed Truman Capote (DUH)
  11:22am Laurie:

I'm a horrible listener/commenter. I keep changing my mind about what I want to hear. I want to post a link to those Argentinean kids playing Iron Maiden, but I will refrain because I've already changed my mind twice.
  11:22am Ghengis Jung:

The other guy in Gong is named Philip Seymour Hoffman.
  11:24am jill:

request for Johnny Guitar Watson's "Ain't That a Bitch?"

For good time fun, see:
  11:24am dei xhrist:

wow hey photos! I am totally blowing off work now. especially since my very name fits the theme. "The rapture!!!" brings to mind a bit in Love & Rockets - a comment that Jesus gets all the pretty girls. And favorite PSH line is "don't touch that. thank you. yes, thank you.) from Big Lebowski.
  11:24am Rococo Pagoda:

When I feel bitter, I cling to Xenu and Laser Guns.
  11:24am cribley:

Handwhistler Ben: Unforgettable
  11:26am -max-:

Zappa is off the table, due to the fact that all FMU Zappa discs are stored in a locked shed out back by the parking lot. Not something that I personally approve of, but Ken's the station manager, not me.
  11:27am Laurie:

I changed my mind about refraining. Please disregard all of my choices except for these kids doing Iron Maiden:

Or, alternately, you can ignore all of my choices because I am indecisive and making your job hard. Er. Harder.
  11:29am Bad Ronald:

I need a multi-armed goddess now!!!
  11:30am -max-:

Regarding the tATu movie, not sure if there has been any date set for the release yet, but I did find a short piece on it here:
  11:30am (mta) Tony:

Would it help if I sent the Zappa tunes via .mp3 immediately?
  11:31am Frank Footer:

How does one submit a picture for the religious themed program?
  11:33am felipe mujica:

this one is super good. chilean 80's new wave-punk. check it out.
  11:34am Ted:

Thanks Ken but thats not us
  11:37am dei x:

Just play everything at once.
  11:37am Ghengis Jung:

Handwhistler Ben wishes he had a train whistle...
  11:38am Ted:

  11:46am anna:
  11:49am Kevin:

Anyone know who penned the original "12" song from Sesame Street?
  11:52am Ghengis Jung:

I don't know who wrote it, but it was performed by
The Pointer Sisters!
  11:52am William:

Seriously though, why would zombies eat brains?

Please play the new Bauhaus record Go Away White inclusive or the new Front 242 record Pulse.

Thank you.
  11:53am Ghengis Jung:

Pinball Number Count was composed by Walt Kraemer and arranged by Ed Bogas.

  1:34pm slugluv1313:

  2:43pm Ghengis Jung:

I just now read the - one suggestion per person - rule... I am a terrible person...
  2:47pm uta:

Ooops my link is completely off ,,
  10:35pm Ghengis Jung:

Thanks Ken! Great idea!
  10:43am Ken:

OK, now that I have added all the embedded youtube links, I see that this page is a browser killer, because of too much flash in one place. So I need to go in and delete most of the youtube links. Sorry! Live and learn!
