Listener comments!

  9:00am Dan B:

Oh hey, Ken's show. I didn't see you there. Oh hey! There's Ken's listeners, too! Hi all!
  9:00am BSI:

...and on the third day (wednesday), the Lord said...
"Let there be Ken"...
  9:01am annie:

morning ken, fellow lizards..
  9:01am Bad Ronald:

Good Morning all!

Thanks again for the Psych Furs tix Ken, it was a great show!!!
  9:03am Ken:

Morning all!
  9:03am anne:

oh yay, good morning!
  9:05am Ghengis Jung:

Good Morning
  9:09am John from Oslo:

I feel like eggnog! Eggnog for Ken and all listeners.
  9:11am Mark:

as long as there's rum in the eggnog
  9:11am Lizardner Dave:

You don't look like eggnog....
  9:11am Parq:

John from Oslo, Live in Oslo . . . maybe Ken's gonna get a Nobel Prize.
  9:13am Lars:

from which album is track 3?
  9:15am Dan B:

THAT is fantastic. Ken's Nobel Prize. Just fantastic!
  9:15am John from Oslo:

Parq, he he
  9:15am BSI:

That would be one of those tour-only CDRs they had, yeh?
  9:15am jan:

Ken: Can't wait any longer. Please play "This is it"! I fear that I 'm never going to hear it, if I don't hear it here.
  9:17am Ken:

And what is the name of the original Paul Anka version of THis is It, and who recorded it again? I'd like to play them back to back...
  9:18am gecko:

@anne: hey ! got crickets?
  9:18am flandrew:

flippin' flantastic morning to y'all!
  9:18am Cecile:

oh, Hatrack

This is it by Kenny Loggins? The smooth music? The Yacht Rock?
  9:19am jan:

according to the home town paper, written by M. Jackson and P. Anka 26yrs ago and performed by Safire as "I never heard". Maybe a mashup?
  9:22am Bad Ronald:

  9:23am Mark:

don't know if you're in the NYC area Jan but:
  9:25am BSI:

"Please don't start singing"...
A great policy for most music, in my humble.
  9:27am Doug of Canada:

Track 3 is called "Phlegm rockets"
  9:27am Bad Ronald:

Ken - The Nobel big link is broken it should be -
  9:28am annie:

  9:28am Parq:

Ken, whaddaya gonna do with the money?
  9:29am anne:

@gecko, no crickets today, sorry, too cold. but i'm trying to get some stinkhorns to hatch in my room. that should attract some flies.
  9:31am Mark:

go man go!
  9:32am Ghengis Jung:

What are those guys dancing about?
  9:33am John from Oslo:

Ken did you OK the artists playing on your big night in Oslo?
  9:36am Lizardner Dave:

Wow, you went into the John Zorn a visit to the Jandek trailer coming next?
  9:38am PMD:

morning all! oh, the things I've missed. Ken, did the other two prefer Dentyne?
  9:38am Cecile:

the dancers are the Nicholas Brothers and they dance because they are the Nicholas Brothers and cannot help their fabulousness.
  9:39am Ken:

Actually Dave, I didnt have to go into the John Zorn storage trailer, because this is a new John Zorn release. So it's still in the new bin. Thanks God. The John Zorn storage trailer is kinda scary these days.
  9:40am Ken:

Thank you Cecile! I love you.
  9:41am annie:

so, i'm gonna be in williamsburg saturday evening...
  9:42am Cecile:

I love you too, ken.

I want to go the Church of the Living Hipster Jesus now.
  9:44am gecko:

@anne - <google for stinkhorn> - oh that's the mushroom that looks like a penis but smells worse. They attract flies? Anyway, there may be an easier way to get them than to hatch them. Many people have them, for example, or least something like looks like them, and at least some of them must attract flies.
  9:45am Ghengis Jung:

I <3 Nina Simone
  9:47am cribley:

I'd like to see Etta and Nina in a vocal cage match.
  9:47am Janet H:

Good Morning!!!
  9:48am Ken:

Your collective mission, should you accept it, is to provide me with downlinks to Michael Jackson's This is It as well as Safire's I Never Heard.
  9:49am seang:

the sun is shining here in beantown
  9:50am JCityJensen:

Morning ken! Morning Morning People!
  9:51am PMD:

  9:52am tmi:

Will somebody please tell me what a Dirty Sanchez is already? I feel like everybody knows except for me...
  9:53am trs:

(weather is shining)
Weather that springs the steps of huskies and malamutes alike.
  9:53am Ne-guh-tor:

Nice show, Ken! Congrats on the Nobel Peace Prize! I got one, too!
  9:54am Andy in Berlin:

I'm sorry to say I have to turn you off - I'm translating a German scientist talking about communication in bees and I have to go back to the original tapes. Sorry! See you in the archives!
  9:54am Chris:

I can't actually test this link at work, but good luck.
  9:55am PMD:

My friends and I coined a new much worse relative of Dirty Sanchez - Dirty Roosevelt. Just imagine what it might be. Think bigger mustache.
  9:55am annie:

brooklyn... ny.. absinthe tasings, and cetera!! one wine staore and two bars
  9:56am Bad Ronald:

@tmi - It's scatological shenanigans.
  9:56am Cecile:

nice, annie!
I would rather be tased by absinthe than a taser. ;D
  9:57am Vivian:

Are they singing 'It's nice to be a trout'?
  9:58am annie:

i'm excited, just have to get a place to board the dog..
  9:59am Janet H:

can someone bring me coffee.....
  10:00am John from Oslo:

I'm selling my Nobel Peace Prize on Ebay
  10:00am JCityJensen:

how about a beer? =
  10:04am anne:

@gecko, yes but so much funner hatching one from and "egg"
  10:07am Vicki - DO or DIY:

yes, I'm off because I'm in jail
  10:08am Dan B:

Ah, Vicki, I already miss your show, and it hasn't even been a full week yet.
  10:11am John from Oslo:

Vicki, have you picked up your peace prize yet?
  10:17am Vicki:

yes but I dropped it on Ken
  10:19am Laurie:

Pettin' parties!

Oh, hi, Ken.
  10:21am Ken:

Hi Laurie!
  10:26am paul:

has anyone heard from Larry lately?
  10:27am Ne-guh-tor:

Somebody's gonna get pregnant!
  10:28am BSI:

...has anyone let Cupcake Dog out for a wee?
  10:30am Ne-guh-tor:

Anka and the woman singing on this track should have been publicly executed after this song was released. ..........terrible........
  10:30am Maria D:

this is getting me really hot & bothered
  10:32am Laurie:

Larry sounds like Charlie Brown.
  10:32am -max-:

This show is mixing well with the "hold" music that Chase is piping into my other ear. Oh, hi Larry! How's every little thing?
  10:33am GP:

I'm out here lookin through the knothole n the fence.
  10:33am Proofreader:

Luke the Drifter (Hank Williams)
  10:33am Lizardner Dave:

Go go Godzilla!
  10:34am paul:

  10:35am BSI:

Giant Robot! Fire finger rockets!
  10:36am John from Oslo:

Anna Anka, Paul's Swedish wife is very happy.
  10:38am cribley:

I hear some jew's / jaw / mouth / whatever harp in the background there... I've recently become addicted.

Could you feature some?
  10:39am GP:

16 y.o. in Vegas, I went to Paul Anka's club in town. Beautiful girl comes up to me wants a drink and to dance....I thought "lucky", she thought "mark". She became very scarce when she realized I had no aye opening lesson to my 16yo. virgin self.
  10:40am Mark:

I hope Anna hasn't thrown any more ice at Paul
  10:40am GP:

aye = eye...unless your are a pirate.
  10:40am paul:

can the larry chronicles be made available as a fundraising premium someday?
  10:41am GP:

That should be ARRRRR a pirate.
  10:41am dave in vermont:

make it stop; please make it stop
  10:41am BSI:

ken....... you're hurting me........
  10:42am moose:

and my neighbors can hear this!
  10:42am jan:

Ken- This IS it! It's great- wjhat a hook. Can you play it again at 16 RPM?
  10:43am Cecile:

this is definitely a lesser track in the Jackson canon.
Sounds like a throwawy.
  10:44am BSI:

Jan: good idea. ...or better yet, 6 RPM... with shitloads of distortion + roland space-echo. Then we might have something.
  10:44am MJ (channeling neil hamburger):

oh come on guys, i'm fucking DEAD.
  10:44am annie:

anyone seen "man bites dog"?
  10:47am gecko:

There's a great cover of this by Avail on the Over The James CD reissue.
  10:50am GJ:

man bijt hond?
  10:50am cuero:

Yes I've seen "man bites dog". Is great
  10:51am GP:

Is that Abe Fromans wife?
  10:52am jan:

Hey BSI- I never had a turntable with 6 RPM and I had my doubts that
listeners in todays MP3 World would even know about 16 RPM
  10:54am Mark:

my first turntable had 16,33,45 and 78
  10:55am BSI:

6 RPM = start with 16 RPM and affix a small terrier or pekingese to the record surface. ... that tune could use some macguyver (sp?)-style help, says I.
  10:55am Cecile:

mine too, Mark.
  10:56am stuart:

what - no Al Martino?
(he died yesterday)
  10:56am annie:

yeah, mark. mine too..
  10:57am Carmichael:

Good morning from storm-ravaged California, Kenneth and those who know the frequency.

Mark, our family stereo had the same four speeds.
Parq, you know what a Dirty Sanchez is? You made up a "Dirty Roosevelt"?!? Then you may know what a "chili dog" is ....
Cecile, I think Yacht Rock is the coolest series of shows on the entire InterTubes.
  10:57am JCityJensen:

half n half =
  10:58am Mark:

and my first turntable was a real piece of crap too!
  10:58am Dan B:

Oh yeah... I haven't heard anything about last week's Secret Radio Listening Party. How did that go?
  10:59am Carmichael:

Ken, can you bring in David Lee Roth to duet with Al Martino with that crazy alchemy-like software you have?
  10:59am dave in vermont:

James is my neighbor
  11:04am Laurie:

Oh, Burning Man.

I like Mike Kelley, but...

Oh, Burning Man.

I would kill myself before attending Burning Man.
  11:04am Wakko Jacko Fan:

  11:05am Michael:

Given that I've always hated Kochalka's stuff as childish-without-being-childlike, sort of cynically infantile, it creeps me out to here him defend, even ironically, a pædophile...and I'm not sure it's ironic..
  11:06am Mark:

Still no dealer list or schedule for the record fair?
  11:06am Dan B:

I've never been to the Record Fair. Would there be anything worth checking out for a person like me who is broker than broke and would have to drive about five hours to get there? I've always wanted to go...
  11:07am Laurie:

I like James Kochalka. Peanutbutter & Jeremy is adorable.
  11:09am paul:

people liks us is playing on sunday, so yes.
  11:10am dei xhrist:

I miss playing along at office. And making cracks about Jesus' crack in Cook's crack. Not to mention Jesus' junk.
  11:10am Carmichael:

My first turntable was a Kenner Close'n'Play.
  11:10am Big Jimmy Dong the Human Blockhead:

RIP Dickie Petersen & Brendan Mullen
  11:11am PMD:

Carmichael, that wasn't Parq. That was me. And no I don't. I'll have to google.
i was going to ask about Larry too, but apparently I mssed him. damn meetings.
  11:11am Laurie:

Kristen Davis is so lifeless, it took me a minute to realize that was an animated gif.
  11:11am cropotkin:

Ok, so what was that motorik krautrock beat i was hearing behind Ken. Was it just classic Neu? If so, I'd be grateful to know what track.
  11:11am Ken:

Mark - those will both be posted on the site any day now
  11:11am Stewie From Quohog:

There is a pedophile that lives down the street from me.... But for some reason noone cares.
  11:13am -max-:

The Trashmen are playing at 2 pm on Saturday at the fair.
  11:13am Mark:

Great, thanks Ken.
Dan B I went for the first time last year and though I spent a lot of money I would have had a great time had I spent nothing.
  11:13am GP:

Good one Laurie...this IS a funny ,gif
  11:15am CDC:

CDC does not recommend "swine flu parties" as a way to protect against 2009 H1N1 flu in the future. While the disease seen in the current 2009 H1N1 flu outbreak has been mild for many people, it has been severe and even fatal for others. There is no way to predict with certainty what the outcome will be for an individual or, equally important, for others to whom the intentionally infected person may spread the virus.
  11:16am TOm:

HI Ken great show. What is the chances of FMU having the record fair at the old Elks lodge in Hoboken? Maybe a spring thing?
  11:17am GP:

Roy Clark ( yes , that Roy Clark) has song called "Spooky Movies", could you see if the station has that one for any upcoming spooktacular shows?
  11:17am Mark:

There's an idea, WFMU flu masks given out at the door at the record fair
  11:19am jan:

Sculpture Center in Long Island City has the Mike Kelley VIdeo and installation about Burning Man- It's great!
  11:20am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Thou doth protest too much. It is indeed your fault.
  11:22am GP:

How does a band get a gig at that joint?
  11:24am -max-:

Tin Huey printed special face masks and handed them out at their concert at the height of the chicken flu epidemic.
  11:25am GP:

i have a poster that says "The Fonz Approves" He has the thumb up and "Aaaaayy" in quotes.

My precise reaction to this Kid Koala track....made my morning.
  11:28am dc pat:

that sheet of music is hilarious
  11:28am Cecile:

Aw, I like Tin Huey even better for that now.
  11:32am krexus:

man I always get some bug at the record fair. I vote for wfmu themed masks and strategically placed sanitizer dispensers.
  11:33am dc pat:

check this one out, even more funny:
  11:38am dc pat:

Hey! That national radio school pic is from DC
  11:38am GP:

DC PAT, "release the penguins" LOL.
That is good.
  11:42am dc pat:

yeah, I like "gradually become agitated"
  11:45am PMD:

Ken, you're no fun. No masks...
  11:47am PMD:

Ventriloquism - now THAT's good radio.
  11:47am Mark:

The subtitle of the Yo Gabba Gabba Soundtrack is "Music is Awesome!"
  11:52am Ken:

I know PMD - Ventriloquism and Radio are MADE for one another!
  11:52am Michael:

Laurie, I am really (un-ironically!) glad that Mr Kochalka's work has brought you pleasure...but know that one person's 'adorable' is another's 'creepy'.

For some of us, our reaction to adorable is very similar to that of a bird parent to its adorable child....
  11:53am Mark:

If I get the swine flu at the record fair and die I'll be pretty unhappy
  11:56am trs:

Mark, what if you get it on the way there? Or on the way home? Then how will you feel?
  11:56am Ken:

I'll give you your money back if that happens Mark. Less your discount of course, if you use the $2 discount card.
  11:57am Mark:

That's a deal Ken
  11:57am Bad Ronald:

how do I get my grubby little hands on one of those $2 discount cards?
  11:59am Ike:

Well, I already had the swine flu, so you'll all see me volunteering at the record fair.
  11:59am Mark:

Bad Ronald, last year you could print the $2 coupon from the record fair website
  12:00pm Bad Ronald:

Thanks Mark!
  12:00pm Mark:

No problem
