Listener comments!

  9:49am Dan:

wHaT's uP
  9:50am youngun:

my apologies for perhaps a dullard of a question. I am brand new to this station- is the last song played listed at the top or the bottom? I was struck by the last song (genre: ska singer: female). Is it fleet foxes or band of mercy...?
  9:53am bw:

new songs are at the bottom

fleet foxes wish they sounded like that!
there were 2 man and woman songs
suffering stink was the one from the Trojan revive box set
and the topless was the amazing rolls royce and the wheels
  10:01am Dan:

Yeah I don't get Fleet Foxes.
  10:01am jeanine:

great show bw.. I've been on a road trip vacation for two weeks and as it turns out, satellite radio blows and they play the same songs over and over again, who would have thought? It's bad to be back at work, but good to be listening to WFMU again!
  10:05am Neil:

This has to be the only song with both the phrases "mosh pit" and "what not."
  10:08am melty:

i'm finding it hard to stay away from the comic long enough that it actually reads like a comic..adorably disheartening
  10:12am spaniel:

the safety pin stuck in my heart song is cool. i really like the guitar on the Patrick Fitzgerald version.
  10:14am welty:

i have a clutchy hopkins stuck in my heart
  10:18am north guinea hills:

i get to work before 9, but i can't plug into wfmu until at least until an after i get here
  10:21am Cass:

you have a great selection fire warden. i'm enjoying!
  10:24am spaniel:

i wonder how much the distraction caused by your playlist is costing our economy. Can I send fmu a bill for my lost productivity?
  10:26am C:

At first I liked Pecan Sandy. Now she's starting to piss me off.
  10:34am ange:

  10:34am Bad Ronald:

Agreed but I think she's a he...
  10:42am C:

Oh, it's a he? I'm pretty sure Bronson would have a problem with him too.
  10:43am bw:

bronson would def waste sandy
  10:48am GW:

Sandy reminds me of a passive aggressive Spongebob, maybe just cause he is yellow...regardless that is one messed up cookie.
  10:50am jeanine:

is it weird that sandy reminds me of an ex-boyfriend?
  10:52am Bad Ronald:

Guilty - Hang him high!
  10:59am north guinea hills:

this edith frost track is seriously depressing...
  11:00am N'Lo:

jeanine - sandy reminds me of my CURRENT boyfriend. WOE is he! Benjamin - brilliant use of yr playlist piccies! thoroughly enjoying!
  11:02am youngun:

pecan sandy- at this point- is the criminal dandy - Jean Genet style- naughty, dangerous, fey. Not so much a little heterosexual tool for pecan empire. you know, revolutionary laziness.
  11:02am GW:

That JJ Johanson track was TOTALLY appropriate for that particular Sandy panel..great choice.
  11:02am Cass:

DIE Peacan Sandy DIE
  11:03am jeanine:

N'Lo.. dump him! The whining will only increase, and when he burns down your house he'll blame the matches!
  11:08am Ike:

N'Lo, if he's really that bad, then ummmmm, you should go out with me instead. Yeah, that's the ticket. Wait, are you male or female?
  11:12am bob:

that is one angry green cookie with wings.
  11:12am N'Lo:

I'm a cookie! We have no gender! (well, except for the Petit Ecolier, and maybe Lorna Doone)
  11:13am mmerck:

austin present...math is hard
  11:13am Ike:

  11:26am sugarwolf:

chapi chapo!!! I watched them all the time as a kid.
  11:29am harehunterfield:

thanks pal, this all sounds oddly familiar. Isn't there someone in Boston that plays this stuff???
  11:30am dei xhrist:

hah! I thought I recognized Bertozzi's style - he used to do the Incredible Drinking Buddies. Sure is a small planet, but then you don't do good work unless you spend years scrawling away at it. That's my excuse for obscurity.
  11:30am GW:

What is going on in that last Panel..Why is Chocko-CHip in his thighty whities, and where is Mr. Peep?...wait, I thought THIS was Mr. Peep..that is even stranger...WTF!!
  11:32am R. P.:

So, there is a moral to this story.
  11:32am north guinea hills:

i feel like mr. peep....
  11:32am FlakeyFoont:

whoa I was one of Bertozzi's students this past winter and he's the one who showed me WFMU and that's why I'm listening today! how appropriate. very nice playlist, by the way.
  11:36am BlitOnThe Stylus:

Good God, "Pecan Sandy" is as American as a drive-by shooting. As are the reactions.

Pecan is the type America cannot tolerate - sort of inoffensive and reclusive, not passive aggressive at all, but simply passive. Absent-minded, too, and a little flummoxed by the practical world. Definitely the type that is useless in Corporate America and a good candidate for elimination.

After all, the U S of A the greatest f'in country on the face of the earth!! Real hard chargers! Step aside buddy!!

Oh, the the rest of the world is starting to barf a bit, I mean with the waterboarding and the 650,000 Iraqis killed, and the world-leading incarceration rate, and the homeless, and the gangs, and probably 1/3 the population without adequate health care, and a huge movement that wants to teach creationism in the schools, but what the hell....enjoy, folks!!!
  11:42am bw:

thats quite an analysis! thanks for that
  11:42am molerat:

This Lena Beamish is wonderfully creepy.
  11:46am Chairman Mu:

No, you have it wrong. Pecan Sandy represents American culture, with it's greed and denial of responsibility. When the rest of the world consumes this culture, it finds it's own destruction.
  11:48am lint:

veddy intyrestink
  11:52am kpc:

What aspects of Pecan's behavior represent American culture, other than saying "I'm widdle & cute"?
  11:55am dei x:

Pecan represents only those who do not successfully overcompensate for their failings. And roommates.
  11:57am Gregory @ Toronto:

pecan sandy is Canadian, isn't he?
  1:10pm sebastian in santiago:

pecan sandy is a transcultural arsehole.
  10:30am Adrian in London:

Hey, pop-up player only lasts for an hour of this show! It cuts off in the middle of the Bronson track. Pecan Sandy seemed too troubled by ennui to live, frankly.
