Listener comments!

  3:08pm Joe Steele:

"Enjoy the show" would be the proper line.
  3:08pm Ike:

Perhaps despite their name, Pains of Being Pure at Heart has actually put out some really impeccable (studio) songs. But when they played live on another station, I wasn't nearly so impressed.
  3:10pm Joe Steele:

┬┐Que hora es?
  3:10pm still b/p:

Circular Open Air Urinals = good lyric phrase.
  3:10pm C:

thought you'd be interested, ken. phil spector got 19 years to life
  3:11pm PMD:

So I guess the balloon thing with the cigarettes is to get young kids to smoke at an early age?
  3:11pm Liz B.:

Lineup for 3-6pm NYC time: Wooden Shjips, Dead Meadow, Ponytail, and Crystal Stilts.
  3:11pm Time Zones:

Barcelona is 6 hours ahead of NYC at all times.
  3:13pm What!:

This makes me so happy.
  3:14pm Liz B.:

It's 9pm here in Barcelona and the sun is just starting to set.
  3:16pm neel jung:

i just met a cab driver from spain who said he used to hang out with neil young and bob dylan smoking hash from morocco in marbella spain many years ago,
  3:19pm holy luv:

  3:25pm J-Mar:

Is that Ira on the Jumbotron?
  3:25pm jeff_m:

hurray for Dead Meadow. Really psyched. My fav live show for a few years
  3:27pm The Hundredth Monkey:

i always wonder if the singer from ws is actuslly a performing somnambulist
  3:30pm chirs:

it does look like ira huh...
  3:30pm Janet H:

<----on the left you spelled "Wooden Shjips" wrong.....thats ok b/c i'm bad at spelling too!
  3:31pm Yucko the Clown:

Phil Spector better stock up on soap on a rope. <HONK HONK>
  3:32pm Ken:

Yeah, That is Ira of Yo La Tengo on the jumbotron.
  3:34pm somnambulist:

i thought it was macy grey on the jumbotron
  3:34pm Janet H:

thumbs up!!
  3:35pm Laurie:

jI love ljistenjing to Wooden Shjips.
  3:36pm CSNY:

Wooden Shjips, Barcelona, very free and easy
  3:36pm dc pat:

is that a big bottle of Jeagermeister? I guess it is..
  3:36pm somnambulist:

sorry - jiumbotron
  3:37pm ?:

back to bed, you
  3:37pm Ken:

Jagermeister is DEEP in the house here. As is myspace
  3:40pm zzzzzzzzz:

  3:41pm Feral Cat:

Wooden Shjips rule!!! Hi silver fox Jagermeister and other culture cats!!!
  3:41pm shhh:

don't wake somnambulist
  3:43pm Janet H:

I thought Wooden Shjips performed yesterday.....
  3:43pm zzzzzzzzzzz:

zzzzzzzzz - turn down that hippy noise - zzzzzzzz
  3:44pm Joe Stjeele:

I think the sets are taped and Ken is live.
  3:44pm Laurie:

I didn't know Andy Breckman knew how to make comments on the internet!
  3:45pm Ken:

Watch it mister z, or I'll turn down your fucking IP number.
  3:45pm Hey Joe:

Yep, Joejoe. Give that man a see-gar.
  3:45pm don was:

i think the music is live and ken is a tape
  3:46pm Ken:

Yes, this was taped early this morning / last night.
  3:46pm Joe Stjeele:

I think Ken is broadcasting from the basement in Jersey City with picutres of Spain surrounding him.
  3:47pm Liz B.:

The sets are almost live... there are like 7 stages here, so we're sending out drones with recorders to capture all of the magic and then we regurgitate it over the air within a few hours. Yesterday was busy so there are a few sets left to air.
  3:47pm Janet H:

Will any of the music tonight be live?
  3:47pm channeling Ken:

I am not a Tape. I... am... a... Human...

OK, on second thought, scratch that.
  3:48pm Janet H:

Ken is at home now...haha
  3:49pm zzzz:

im sorry ken, ill behave
  3:49pm Liz B.:

It is impossible to broadcast the sets completely live... we only have internet in one spot and we are nowhere near any of the soundboards or stages. We would love to, but alas technology won't permit a telepathic signal upload.
  3:51pm Joe Stjeele:

I imagine the bunch of them in a rubber life raft just off in the Mediterranian with a big antenna and a laptop.
  3:52pm Ken:

Thanks, z.
  3:55pm Lizardner Dave:

I wonder what Larry thinks of the festival. Keep doing a good show.
  3:56pm What!:

Man, that flanger has no off switch. Not complaining, just sayin...
  3:57pm z:

they could be floating on that Jagermeister inflatable
  3:58pm still b/p:

If only Stardust could get there from his marvelously equipped observatory on his private star and offer some tech help for live sets with his powers and tubular spacials and accelerated supersolar lightwaves.
  3:58pm Hmm...:

That would be *Plastic* Shjips, z.
  4:00pm z:

yeah what, that flange is set to 11
  4:00pm Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  4:01pm Carmichael:

Perfect timing. Wooden Shjips!
  4:02pm Joe Stjeele:

Stardust could just send out a recording ray and take care of all of it.

And it anyone trips over the power chord, he could hurl them to Mercury where the Mercurian walking sharks would devour them.
  4:04pm demer:

hey bill.....hope u r havin a good trip!
  4:08pm z:

wheres the picture of andy breckman passed out in the front row with an empty bottle of jagermeister and a joint hangin from his mouth
  4:10pm John from Oslo:

Ken is in Madrid
  4:11pm Carjmichael:

Andy couldn't make the trip, so he's emulating that effect on his living room floor.
  4:12pm Carjmichael:

Closer to the mic, Liz!
  4:14pm Janet H:

i like the technical noise
  4:15pm Joe Steele:

I just saw they HAD Stardust t-shirts on a Fletcher Hanks website.
  4:15pm Janet H:

Liz B, I shop in the children section of Target too!
  4:17pm still b/p:

Stardust T-shirts! I'd like posters of selected strip panels.
  4:19pm Janet H:

John from Oslo, that pict is great!
  4:19pm Joe Steele:

I'm noticing all his main characters look oddly the same. http://www.fletcherhanks.com/HOME.html
  4:20pm Nick From Deerfield Beach Fl.:

Much better today then yesterday. Keep up the great work. Thanks.
  4:21pm John from Oslo:

Hey - the stream is great now!

Thanks Janet - I had to mirror his head, but nobody will notice : )
  4:23pm Ike:

Nice sounds. Agreed w/Nick. Internet behaving today.

Ever had a job where you're told to use a new piece of software, and the software DOES NOT WORK? And it gives you a headache? Today = FAIL!
  4:23pm Janet H:

John from Oslo, You're right no one will notice...i mirror his head all the time.....and no one said anything!
  4:26pm John from Oslo:

Janet; Exploding frogs and mirroring heads, typical leisure activities in Oslo
  4:27pm John from Oslo:

Dead Meadow live - GREAT! thanks wfmu
  4:28pm Ike:

Maybe my workplace's lame-ass new software should be called Exploding Frogs. I'm so frazzled that I'm drinking decaf tea. Dead Meadow is helping too. Thanks.
  4:30pm still b/p:

Checking the Hanks site, a link there for one of the comics brought a warning of an attack site! The Fifth Column up to their tricks!
  4:32pm Janet H:

Ike, What software are you using or trying to use?
  4:34pm Ken:

Y'all spoke to soon! Vodaphon acting up again...
  4:35pm Janet H:

I'm glad I found WFMU....or it found me.....either or i'm happy!!
  4:36pm Ike:

Janet, it is called Keyword Country and it is of Satan. Who knows -- maybe the same dillweeds are also behind Vodafone.
  4:36pm jeff_m:

the good ship WFMU is glad to have you Janet
  4:38pm doug from dc:

Alright, just tuned in to the fest, in time for a (former) DC band.
  4:39pm John from Oslo:

Powerful you have become, the Vodafon side I sense in you.
-- Yoda
  4:39pm jeff_m:

yeah was surprised to hear them say they were from LA and not DC
  4:43pm Dead Carmichael:

Is that what you were talking about earlier, Ike? Keyword Country? It sounds like some new-fangled OCR conversion software.
  4:44pm Billy Jam:

sounding good guys - am in Dublin, Ireland where it is one hour behind Barcelona but 5 hours ahead of New Jersey - but still bright here at 9:43pm -
  4:45pm still b/p:

Isn't Keyword Country a musical genre that Irwin favors?
  4:46pm Janet H:

it's 3:46pm here...
  4:47pm Carmichael:

Billy! How's that public house by the hotel on Eden Quay? Are they still rockin"? Good to hear (read: "see") your voice.
  4:47pm Bad Ronald:

Hey Billz!
  4:48pm LizGig:

Billy Jam. Hello from north Tipp! Where it is also still bright at 9.47pm _and_ warm!
  4:48pm Parq:

I was more or less on the same page as b/p - I was thinking that Keyword Country was some sort of software that helped you search for Keith Urban mp3s.
  4:49pm doug from dc:

Keyword Country is an SEO (satanic employment opportunity) application.
  4:50pm Ike:

Hey there Billy!

Carmichael, it's nothing so advanced as OCR conversion. Just some slow-ass Internet advertising bullshit that doesn't !@#%&ng work half the time.
  4:50pm Billy Jam:

that house is doing good...am by the canal now - like a Pogues song......what up Bad Ronald! - hey LizGig - greetings - great weather in Ireland -next Friday in this time slot it will be Put the needle on the Record - live from Belfast.....hey Jeff Mullan,
  4:51pm jeff_m:

Evening sir!
  4:55pm Ike:

Doug from DC: HA! Nice one.

SEO, sure, except that it ain't optimizing SHIT. It is actually so lame that I have a PEN and PAPER and when I'm lucky enough to see some results then I WRITE THEM DOWN because I won't be able to get back to them! OK, enough about me. How's the food in Barcelona? Good paella? What's tasty in Dublin, Billy? Lots of vindaloo?
  4:56pm Janet H:

Speaking of Ken in the basement earlier.... he was probably also whittling away on his adorable balsa squirrels......
  4:57pm jeff_m:

its actually the same set the faked the moon landing on
  4:57pm LizGig:

Billy Jam, looking forward to it. Unfortunately I was ill when you were in Limerick, so I didn't get down, but at least I tuned in! I was really interested by the rappers from Shannon. Looking forward to the Belfast show and the alt culture it throws up during parade season.
  4:57pm Ken:

Hi Billy!
  4:58pm doug from dc:

How's the Estrella Damm in Barcelona?
  4:59pm Billy Jam:

fish n chips on the menu tongiht, Ike.....from Burdocks....oh and Manchester UTD. fans getting all aggro at any Bareclona football fans they can locate here in this Fair City
  5:02pm Billy Jam:

hi Ken - sounds like you, Scott, Liz, Trent, Brian etc. are all having a blast. WIsh I could have hopped on a Ryan Air flight over there......Yeah LizGig should be good up in Belfast - falling on election day and all - so far we have some turntalbists - graff artists - b-boys and Jinx Lennon and more lined up.....
  5:04pm LizGig:

Jinx Lennon! Don't know whether to love or hate him. Saw him at the Electric Picnic a few years back. I'll definitely be at my laptop next Friday evening.
  5:10pm Billy Jam:

yeah that is how many I talk to here in Eire feel - I love him....He is playing at Sugar Club in Dublin on Thursday - along with Paula Flynn + Captain Moonlight - am looking forward to attending. THanks fpr supporting WFMU Liz GIg!
  5:12pm LizGig:

My pleasure! Though it's kind of weird that a north Jersey station is producing some of the most interesting Irish radio.
  5:16pm Carmichael:

Ike, you don't know how close you are when you talk about "good" Irish food. My wife puts the boots to me all the time about that, and she's Danish. Go figure. She ate pork chops at some upscale joint near the Gresham and laid up ill for 2 days.
  5:25pm Parq:

Carm, my neighborhood Irish bar, one of the few in the City that isn't cookie-cutter, little-people's-disease stuff, makes pork chops so well that I think of them as the definitive version. And they were one of the first bars in the US to serve Smithwick's.
  5:28pm Carmichael:

Nicely done, Dead Meadow! I'm converted.
  5:32pm watchpocket:

Anyone who's made it to Barcelona, before you come back, don't deny youself a quick trip over to the islands of Ibiza and Formentera. You won't regret it.
  5:44pm watchpocekt:

I spent 3 fantastic years on those islands smoking red moroccan hasish and ingesting the best acid and psilocybin in all of western europe. Sometiems I would find myself walking down the Ramblas without knowing how I got there.
  6:01pm Laurie:

I have a crush on Molly.
  6:12pm Scott:

This Ponytail set is amazing!
  6:15pm wow:

  6:37pm Thomas:

Will any of the Primavera sets be archived? (please god yes)
  6:39pm Liz B.:

Most of the sets will be archived. Some bands did not give us permission to do so, though, so we will need to edit/post them later.
  6:45pm Thomas:

Awesome. Thanks Liz.
  6:47pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Just tuned in a few minutes ago. I REALLY like Crystal Stilts and had never - to my knowledge - heard them before. This is great stuff!
  7:01pm Parq:

Yeah, I like Crys Stilts the best of so far today.
  7:02pm ~L:

Thank you WFMU/WMFU for broadcasting this event! It sounds great. Even the people who attend can't hear everything. So I'm extremely thankful for all you've broadcast. And it's not just the Margaritas talking!
  7:21pm bw:

it all sounds amazing - wish I was there too! love the pictures and the audio - !!!
  7:29pm Salat:

Hey, I hope you guys were able to dodge the rubber bullets from the celebration/riots when you landed on Wednesday.
  1:17pm Paul Karasik:

Yup...Crazy Fletcher Hanks t-shirts at my website,,,but there are not many left:

I will be talking to Benjamin on Monday morning about the NEW Fletcher Hanks book debuting at MoCCA next Friday!
