  9:58am ted:
  9:59am TTTTT:

'this isn't poppy enough'
  9:59am Daia Tonita:

Stop playing this non-political crap.
  10:00am ted:

Ken, can't you play something we will all like? :)
  10:00am Tim:

But is it excessively jaunty?
  10:00am Ken:

Larry is in the hospital. He will be out soon I hope.
  10:01am Cher:

I hate listening, I really want you all to know that =)=)=)
  10:02am jtm:

Ken pals around with terrorists.
  10:02am Bad Ronald:

Buxley, toni, cher better chill out...
  10:03am s in s:

the ad is very funny by itself. of course, the recent events add a layer of unintentional humor to it.
  10:03am Lizardner Dave:

Ted, I think the question is can't we all like something Ken plays?
  10:06am Vicki:

it's not poppy enough but it's too poppy
  10:07am Mark:

The economic crisis is so last week
  10:07am Britain:

you're welcome
  10:08am JCityJensen:

We're going down, down, down, down!
  10:08am R. P.:

Down 263 points already.
  10:09am JCityJensen:

Man names baby 'Sarah McCain Palin' behind wife's back
  10:09am Tim:

Knowing is half the battle Ken
  10:10am Mark:

oh dear
  10:12am Lee:

might want to line up some pakistani music....
  10:12am Swami:

That Snoop Dog/Cash effort depresses me to no end. B.W.O. rocks though. Iceland went bankrupt!? There goes my retirement home.
  10:13am ted:
  10:15am Bad Ronald:

Can't Bjork bail out Iceland?
  10:16am GP:

Bjork needs to have a benefit concert.
  10:16am Dickdong:

Your a star Ken. Don't know this one.
  10:17am Negator:

Where are the Bush supporters now with apologies? Huh? I damn near got into fist fights with relatives during his first campaign arguing the uselessness of that guy, but NOOOOO! How do those dumb fucks feel? I haven't had a single one of those people come up to me and say, "Negator, you were right, sir. I sould have listened to you and not voted for George Bush, Jr. He is a failure and so am I". Never happened although I have wanted to approach them. They are so egotistical and unwise. If I did that, BAM!, fight bitch or I could get shot....
  10:19am Mark:

you're known as "Negator" in real life too?
  10:19am stingy d:
  10:20am Doug:

Your mattress investment plan is absolutely destroying Andy's investment plan at the moment.
  10:21am HotRod:

ah! I fucking love this song!
  10:21am GP:

Ken, is the "Corn Weinie" song on the FMU blog somewhere? I can't find it there, or will this forever be your secret song.
  10:22am Negator:

I'm serious about that violence thing. The staunchest Bush supporters from around my parts are the most emotionally (repressed) and leaning towards violence, I quit talking politics with 'em after a few "episodes". I'm too old for unwanted pain. I'm known in real life as a name I don't type too much on the internet, Nick.
  10:22am ted:

I'm known as Freak Frehley is real life.

Ace's brother.
  10:23am Ken:

Yes, the Corn Weenie song is already on the blog - it is called "How to Speak Hawaiian, Part Two" -= someone please post the permalink address here!
  10:24am GP:

10-4 Ken..thanks for the update. It is weird, I can't access the blog through my firewall at work, but the online playlist and audio work fine....shhhh, don't tell them!
  10:24am Mark:

let you freak flag fly Freak Frehly
  10:25am Tim:
  10:26am billy jam:

hey Ken, good show including Paris track. His new video (for "Dont Stop the Moveemt" off Acid Reflex) that he talked about in his recent WFMU interview has just been completed and avail to see here:
  10:26am ted:

Thats Frehley and I'm no flag fag.
  10:26am Ken:

Thanks Tim! And now let's have a Corn Weenie Remix contest! Send me your submissions to ken at wfmu dot org - deadline, two weeks from today!
  10:28am GP:

It still looks like Palin likes to have a good time..Viking helmets for all! I'm just sayin...
  10:29am Mao Jones:

CaN YOU please play some political stuff now? This SUCKS.
  10:29am Saul Stanley:

I'm known as Paul's least favorite cousin in real life.
  10:31am Negator:

pLEASE slow this Dead Western song down a bit for me Ken.
  10:33am JCityJensen:

oooh this outta control:
  10:37am stingy d:

that palin as president site really is wild
  10:46am mad3284:

wow, i just signed on to tell y'all about but as usual wfmu'ers are way ahead of the curve.... F-M-U!! F-M-U!!
  10:47am Vicki: - open the door and shoot the deer!
  10:48am efd:

so, Ken, were you prompted to play Danielle Dax because one of her LPs was sticking out of the wall? I almost fell into that trap last night - I pulled one of her albums, but ended up not playing it.
Or maybe it was you who pulled that album halfway out in the first place.
  10:50am Ken:

Yes Evan, that is why!! Was it a trick? Am I cursed?
  10:51am stingy d:
  10:57am Sean Daily:

Hello, Ken...

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  10:58am GP:

German Hippie This is nice.
  10:59am Carmichael:

Guten Morgan, Ken. Gehen Sie zu San Francisco?
  11:00am jtm:

Count me out! I was hoping for tragic but NOT fatal!
  11:00am GP:

...and Daniel Johnston! This IS a good morning.
  11:01am Carmichael:

Daniel Johnston!!
  11:01am ted:

Ken, What is that piece at the end of last weeks show, the gothic thingy? Maybe it's your regular outro theme?.... PS: thanks for the Wire gig, 'twas awesome!
  11:05am Ken:

Ted, I'm not sure what song that was, I will have to check later - but did you check the playlist? Glad to hear Wire was good! I cant believe I had to miss it...
  11:05am esch oder anarchie!:

"Pork"? "barrell"??? The truth about why McCain picked Palin!
  11:10am Todd 76%:

Saw/played with Fucked Up in Danbury CT Monday night. What a whomping onslaught! Today, I can almost hear again...
  11:10am C:

wow! just gave me a free year's subscription to rolling stone
  11:11am Mark:

was that some kind of penalty?
  11:12am Ken:

You're not street teaming us, are you C?
  11:12am JCityJensen:

  11:12am Parq:

C, 2nd prize is a two-year subscription.
  11:13am Mark:

  11:13am Ken:

Actually Rolling Stone's current issue has a great expose on the McCain myth.. the whole story surrounding the guy is a total crock of shit.
  11:14am ted:

Hey ted who saw wire. I was here first. get another name
  11:14am C:

sorry, guys. i'm not. but now i'm kind of scared that maybe i got scammed. it was an email sent to my spam folder and now they have all my personal and payment info. uh oh...

also, is it really such a bad magazine? it's got to have some decent articles every once in a while.
  11:14am Mark:

like freek freely
  11:15am g:

god bless Philadelphia--remember when we booed Santa?
  11:15am ted:

Its Freak Frehley
  11:16am Bad Ronald:

or Sean Freakly...
  11:16am Mark:

Freke Furly it is
  11:18am GP:

Dang G, that is hard-freaking-core..what ever happened to brotherly love?
  11:18am ted:

Don't make my call by brother, Ace.
  11:19am Mark:

how is Ace these days? reasonably coherent?
  11:19am stingy d:

play the troggs
  11:20am ted:

We don't really talk.
  11:20am Sean Daily:

Okay... this Rammstein-does-the-Russian-national-anthem song is a bit... creepy.
  11:22am Mark:

last I saw of him Ace didn't seem capable of talking
  11:22am Vicki:

Yayyy! Whistling and Laaa-ing!
  11:22am Carmichael:

Whistling & la-la's in the same song!!
  11:25am Parq:

"Whistling Nazis" would make a good hilbilly epithet. Y'know, like "Whistlin' Nazis, them revenoors shure is persisient!"
  11:27am Carmichael:

Also a great band name!
  11:27am Sean Daily:

Well, you know, Parq, whistling Nazis are your best kind of Nazi.

So, can I expect another Hitler maybe three years or so after the Great Global Financial Clusterfuck?
  11:28am Carmichael:

The revenoors don't give a Nazi la-la 'bout nothin' except my money.
  11:29am Mark:

no bagpipes! then I aint going!
  11:30am Bad Ronald:

I hate whistling Illinois Nazis!!!
  11:31am Carmichael:

"I've always loved you."
  11:31am GP:


Glockenspiel Please.
  11:32am Bad Ronald:

Great line Carmichael! LOL
  11:32am Sean Daily:

"Castrati Nazi Luftwaffe whistle gang"... Mark your calendars, everyone, because that will be the ONLY time you EVER hear ANYONE string throse particular words together.

Only on Ken's show! It's just one radio first after another!
  11:32am Carmichael:

I've just put on my Liederhosen. And a big smile ....
  11:33am GP:

O.K....or a Theremin
  11:33am Carmichael:

Ronald, that's the best line of the entire movie.
  11:34am Carmichael:

More like a poor man's theremin ...
  11:35am -max-:

That was no Theremin, that was a saw!
  11:35am Bad Ronald:

You can liederhosen to water...
  11:36am Carmichael:

Righteous tunes, Ken. Can I guess your weight??
  11:36am Bad Ronald:

Carmichael - Yeah there are so many to choose from. I kinda like -

"who IS that chick?"
  11:36am WebHamster Henry:

Ken - "SuperSaw" has a great book on the Musical Saw called Scratch My Back that is full of pix of famous sawyers and specially made musical saws like the Sandvik Stradivarius. My copy has been lent out for a few years , but maybe someone will have it at the rec fair.
  11:37am Carmichael:

"You, on the motorcycle."
  11:37am Mark:

on the ceiling!
  11:37am Ken:

Yes, go ahead and guess my weight!! It can't be done!!
  11:38am GP:

Wow. I sit here amazed. Yeah, I just looked it up:

What a crazy sound.
  11:41am Carmichael:

Between saws and castrati, the musical bases are pretty much covered.

Makes Geddy Lee sound downright run-of-the-mill.
  11:44am Bad Ronald:

"No I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I, I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts. IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD."
  11:44am Vicki:

I didn't know Jaap Blonk played the bagpipes
  11:45am JCityJensen:
  11:47am Lizardner Dave:

This is too poppy.
  11:47am Mark:

Don't you love it when Ken says he has nothing to play then comes up with a great final half hour like this
  11:47am Carmichael:

Sampled Pachinko sounds?
  11:48am Jeff M:

Kind of scratchy and alienated... yet happy!
  11:48am Jaap:

This is too experimental.
  11:49am GP:

This is not poppy enough
  11:49am Sean Daily:

Make it stop, Mommy! Please - make - it - STOP!
  11:49am bzul:

If this is the calm opium, the consequences of the more vigorous grade must be tragic and fatal. There is hope. Make the call.
  11:50am Parq:

Sounds like dolphins.
  11:50am Parq:

does not compute
  11:51am TTTrrr:

November poppies
  11:51am GP:

This is what Radiohead will be reduced to in the future.
  11:52am Lizardner Dave:

Popcorn! It's Poptober!!!!!!
  11:52am Park:

BIG Poppies
  11:54am The real Parq:

Accept no substitutes.
  11:55am Biz zank skizzy:

Come see my show, but you won't see me
  11:56am bzul:

WW of the W: "Something with poison in it, I think. With poison in it, but attractive to the eye -- and soothing to the smell!
Poppies! Poppies! Poppies!"
  11:57am crowe:

  11:58am weiterso:

  11:58am dave from baltimore:

three cheers for hank jr. you tell them libruls!
  11:58am GP:

H O O D O O is your word of the day
  11:58am ted:

Its all Obama's fault
  11:59am Sean Daily:

Why, Bocephus sounds a bit... angry... Darn all those darned liberal medias....
  11:59am Mark:

It's good to know that everything is still Bill Clinton's fault
  12:00pm ASSparagus:

Mercy Please - MERCY...this is gutting me
  12:00pm Parq's father:

now you get right home immediately!
  12:00pm GP:

At least this was not talking in the background...
  12:00pm ted:

Clinton is Obama's fault!
  12:01pm Jeff M:

I'm very scared.
  12:04pm Styx:

Osama, I'm in fear for my life/From the long arm of Allah/Jet plane is coming down on Manhattan/And we don't have very long...
  12:04pm Cecile:

"Taliban on the run" wow. Just wow. no words.
i need to hear some TaTu to purify my brain. I never thought I would say that.
  12:06pm Carmichael:

Motorhead as relief. Lots of Motorhead.
  12:07pm GP:

Black Flag would also do
  12:07pm Cecile:

All of the Motorhead. now

sometimes a 9/11 attack is just a 9/11 attack - Sigmund Freud
  12:07pm Bad Ronald:

The Surf Punks always set me straight.
  12:07pm Carmichael:

Or Royal Trux.
  12:07pm C:

I vaguely remember you playing a song a few years ago about 9/11 called "i like to watch" or something. do you still have that?
  12:11pm GP:

Ken, this guy is literally hypnotizing me....We will all now comply
  12:11pm holy christ:

"this is agony" which begs the question - why am I still listening...

I'm out... zip
  12:12pm Cecile:

careful, this track is a snare....
  12:13pm Ike:

Kenny G. is topping himself here.
  12:14pm Carmichael:

This has crossed the line from lunatic, dyslexic persuasion into bad standup.

I could listen forever. But that's just how I am ...
  12:15pm Carmichael:

So does this playlist go on all day, even though Ken has sauntered out of the studio?
  12:22pm Bird Brain:

  12:22pm stingy d:

who sings this brid brina song?
  12:24pm Tonya Harding:

  12:24pm Cecile:

Bird Brain, you have been busy.
  12:25pm Bad Ronald:

Mmmmm Brainzzzzz!!!
  2:58pm listener jeff:

just heard the hank jr. song. what an instant classic. i think the original song references drinking and dope smoking. by inference, we can now assume palin/mccain pal around with dope dealers and probably smoke themselves.
  4:38pm bwalker:

oh god.. the hank jr remix.. I am listening sunday afternoon.. ready to kill someone.. cant.. take.. it.. anymore.. MAVERICK!!!!
