Listener comments!

  11:19am BillyJam:

Greetings from Jersey City......Shout out to all of the imcredible peeps who participated in last week's Live From Limerick WFMU remote broadcast....which was so much fun. And those involved showed so much love for WFMU it was moving...>>>>Today's guests will include Conspiracy of Beards - the 30 member male vocal group who interpret Leonard Cohen songs. They were so popular last year that we invited them back on this WFMU show.....Other possible guests (phone ins) include Kool Keith and Dose-One - both of whom are performing in NYC tonight.>>>>>This show is dedicated to diehard WFMU UK listener DJ Spiderman who is currently nursing a broken arm after a ski accident.....Get well mang!....>>>Topics for today to contribute to the comments include the bozo who is in the news today: Question what would be the perfect caption to accompany the picture of him (c/o New York Times) at bottom of playlist in light of the latest news on this character? >>>Topic #2 was the big G20 over in the UK a "turning point" in the global recession as Obama said or merely a get together for world leaders on our (the tax payers) dime or shilling,? >>>Topic #3: Did you hear WFMU on Weds when Andy filled in for Irwin? Jesus Mary and Joseph! April fools day indeed. Man the music he played was so awful that it.....FILL IN THE BLANK.....if you were tuned in....My comment is that it was so goddam awful that last night in the supermarket the music they were playing off some cheesy lite rock station was even superior - At least I could hum along.....
  2:33pm Curious Case of Ben:

caption = "At least my hair is perfectly in place"
  2:39pm Lisa M.:

Hey Billy and everyone!!
  2:51pm Lisa:

  3:02pm Sean Daily:

  3:03pm Sean Daily:

  3:14pm lsmonkey:

Hey Billy listening from Oaktown with Lulu
  3:16pm Cecile:

Billy, that entire three hour period is a blank to me now.

this is wonderful singin'
  3:17pm Parq:

Stepping up to option # 3: Andy's musical selection was so whitebread that I became confused and thought I was back in my old 1978 college apartment trying to ignore the music my roommates were playing while they had friends over for the afternoon. I became so disoriented that I phoned up “College Pizza” and ordered a cheese steak sub and a can of ginger ale. The kid who now lives in my old apartment, whoever his is, surely is still wondering who was the wise guy who sent him the food.
  3:20pm Timi Dz Nutz:

shout to all!! Hey LuluBelle....I'm here, but the show has been baned here cuz my manger is a big C U Next Tuesday!!!!
  3:22pm Cecile:

This is the last time i'm going to discuss it. You got it, Parq, and so did Ike.

I lost my cool and did that "storm off the comment board " I hate when other people do it.

Timi, my girlfirends and I use that CU Next Tuesday all the time. LMAO
  3:23pm djspiderman:

harmonizingly hypnotizingly humongously heavenly heralding i hear --
ahhhhhhh i believe the conspiracy of beards
  3:24pm Ike:

Is this a rerun?! ;)
Can these guys beatbox? 8^)

Andy's musical selections made me vomit near the speakers, and the vomit was so horrified by the music that it tried to ooze out of the apartment and down the stairs to get away from it. Unable to slide through the door crack, the vomit leapt back into my body so that the nightmarishly bland and tasteless music would at least be muffled by my stomach lining and intestines.
  3:25pm Cecile:

yes. what you said
  3:25pm Cecile:

dj spiderman, I mean.

But a little of what you said, Ike.

But HEY! Conspiracy of Beards rights all wrongs!
  3:26pm G.:

mmm, vomit.

vomit with some musical taste.
  3:29pm Cecile:

that's awesome, Beards! Good for you guys!
  3:30pm ?:

caption:I shoulda been President!
  3:31pm djspiderman:

  3:33pm Sean Daily:

Caption: Former Illinois Gov. Rob Blagojevic contemplates his future as a large black man's bitch in Joliet.
  3:34pm Sean Daily:

Correction: ROD Blagojevic
  3:36pm ?:

Caption: "good lord these singing guys with the beards are boring . . . bring that beat back"
  3:36pm G.:

Hmm, bet one could also do a similar thing with John Darnielle lyrics...
  3:38pm Billy Jam:

Tonite Conspiracy of Beards perform in Brooklyn at Stain Bar at 8pm at 766 Grand St, tomorrow afternoon at 2pm at Highline Ballroom on W 16th st in Manhattan, and tom. night at 8pm at the Bowery Poetry Club 308 Bowery @ Bleeker.....and then they all fly back to SFO
  3:41pm djspiderman:

man gnawing on jerkey trys to swat fly- misses when wig fringe slips and obscures vision.
  3:43pm Blago:

Mmm this thumb tastes good. Nummy nummy num.
  3:44pm mb:

How much on the tapes? 2 fer 5?
  3:45pm djspiderman:

  3:46pm Cecile:

  3:47pm Ismael:

  3:48pm Sean Daily:

  3:50pm Skull and Bones:

Cecile, we could tell you - if it weren't a conspiracy. Which it is. Of beards.
You don't have a beard.
  3:50pm Cecile:

you have to stop eating mushrooms before you post, Sean.

  3:51pm Sean Daily:

  3:53pm Parq:

Cecile, are you possibly thinking of another meaning for "beards" along the lines of this?

  3:56pm Cecile:

  3:57pm Cecile:

Why do the math questions for the comments page get so much more difficult after 4:20?
  4:52pm G.:
