Listener comments!

  9:00am Dan B From Upstate:

Good morning, Ken! Happy Wednesday, fellow listeners!
  9:01am annie:

dan, you have sleet yet?
  9:02am seang:

Good morning folks!
  9:02am Ken:

Morning all!
  9:03am Ne-guh-tor:

I'm addicted to Mugwump juice!
  9:03am Dan B From Upstate:

Sure do, Annie. Sleet, freezing rain, all sorts of good stuff to hinder my morning commute. I'm working without coffee today. :-(
  9:04am annie:

woke to about three inches of wet snow, the rain started about an hour ago.. a real mess all over.. drive carefully!
  9:05am bad Ronald:

Morning All!
  9:05am JJZ:

We're in prime frozen puddle season here in the Chicagoland area. The snow has turned into slush and melted into puddles in places, in the afternoon it'll get cold enough to freeze again and then snow on top of that and you'll step into an icy cold surprise.
  9:08am John from Oslo:

Hi Ken. Hi all.
Obama is coming to town tomorrow! And all Norwegians are sulking because he is not having lunch with the King, not attending the concert with Donna Summer, and not going to the Obama exhibition. Why didn't they give the medal to KEN, Kenny G or Vicki?
  9:09am Parq:

JJZ, thanks. My daughter was accepted to a top Chicago school and decided not to go. You're making me feel much better about it.
  9:10am Booze Pimp:

Why not mix yourself up a nice strong drink? Just to get you going, I mean.
  9:11am Dan B From Upstate:

Who is the other guy in the Niobe pic? Is that's Raymond's equivalent of Cousin Oliver? I never watched that show...
  9:11am JCityJensen:

Morning Soggy WOOFMOOS!
  9:11am JJZ:

Well, it's not a long season. It settles into "uneven layer of frozen footprint laden ice" for a much longer time.
  9:14am seang:

Sagittarians Unite!
  9:19am JCityJensen:

for you all you letter Ks -
  9:20am seang:

Ken is still DRUNK
  9:21am Parq:

This sounds like I feel.
  9:22am annie:

your voice sounds like your head is covered with a pillow case, ken!!
  9:23am Chris:

I loved when Ken challenged the varacity of JDs religious beliefs on SSD last week.
  9:23am Lizardner Dave:

Please tell me this mp3 is going to be on the blog. Or a marathon premium.
  9:23am BSI:

Just now tuning in.
And bless you Kenneth Freedman, for giving me the best hour of radio in my PATHETIC little life, last week.
  9:23am JCityJensen:

FREE WORLD WAR II - posters - for all you heavy am drinkers -
  9:28am Mark:

NYNEX wasn't in there somewhere?
  9:34am Oscar:

Just my connection or is 128k stream jumping?
  9:36am Janet H:

Good Morning, Ken and Others!!
  9:36am anne:

good morning salamander lovers everywhere!
  9:37am JJZ:

128k is smooth here.
  9:37am Tom:

play the new Fall "Slippy Floor"!
  9:43am Don Poohba:

Ken, did WFMU get the power booster on the Empire State Bldg.?
  9:43am Billy Jam:

morning SoberKen. My favorite DrunKen quote was "NEVER"
  9:44am PMD:

Rappin' along.
  9:47am Oscar:

I want to learn to say this, Ken. Please play the song more than once.
  9:48am Maria D:

What does it mean about me if I'm craving more Dylan Xmas music? I do really want more. Did you destroy that record, Ken?
  9:48am annie:

yes, i second that suggestion...
  9:50am Ne-guh-tor:

  9:50am Dan B From Upstate:

The famous Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch sign:
  9:52am north guinea hills:

Thanks Dan B!
  9:54am BSI:

damnable meetings!
don't nobody have fun 'til I get back!
  9:54am Dan B From Upstate:

No problem, though I gotta' admit I'd love to hear Drunk Ken pronounce that town's name.
  9:57am Mmmmmooooonk:

Me too!
  9:58am Bon Jovi:

You give Drunk a bad name!!!!
  9:58am Mark:

I hate it when people schedule meetings on Wednesday mornings
  10:01am fishmonkeystew:

This Matias Aguayo song makes me think of Jud Jud.
  10:09am Maria D:

Special Xmas records - I can't wait! I best stay at my desk.
  10:10am Chris:

(In a Welsh accent) Could Dylan be cued and ready to go?
  10:11am Janet H:

Not a witch... A Mistress of the Dark Arts!!!
  10:12am north guinea hills:

There's a town in New Zealand that has a name longer then Llanfair....
  10:20am jojo:

I DID the alphabet backwards for the police at 4 am one night, they did not ask, i offered to show how sober i was, i scared them more than it helped...had been drunk long before but at least the fiasco allowed me to hide all the drugs in my car and got off with a DUI, and left a nug of weed on the floor of the police station, but hey i was only 17 so the DUI didn't stick
  10:21am anne:

any word on how Julia Stiles and Bill Pullman are doing?
  10:26am Cecile:

I would like to hear some Flight of the Conchords, please.

"you can't even apologize to a witch!"
  10:27am Ken:

Which FOTC Cecile?
  10:29am AnAnonymousParty:

I love this song, but I swear it sounds like "Love and Laughter".
  10:29am Cecile:

Ladies of the World or Boom!
Or if you have the new one, Hurt Feelings.
  10:30am bbell:

Waits is the king of gravel and grizzle, but does this mean Ken is warming us up for Dylan?
  10:30am Cecile:

Man, this TRex tribute band is the WORST ever. :D
  10:30am AnAnonymousParty:

Man, Dylan just sounds rougher and rougher.
  10:31am Cecile:

I want to hear the Santa Claus song from Dylan.

I ordered a John Waters Christmas for my husband. It's very well curated, but would have been better if it was just lost tracks of him and Divine singing drunken Christmas carols.
  10:32am Lizardner Dave:

The finale of Andy's little show was the most watched episode of an original drama series in the history of cable.
Let's remember this at soaking time, shall we?
  10:32am Cecile:

is this the Hitmen as is the Australian band Johnny Kannis and the Hitmen.
  10:33am Cheri Pi:

No-Don't play the Santa Claus song by Dylan, it'll lose it's power over us if we actually hear it. Let it remain a legend.
  10:33am Cecile:

I watched most of it, and choked up a little.
I hadn't watched the show since, oh, when they replaced Sharona with the chick from 2 Guys, a Girl and No Talent.
  10:34am Ken:

Yes, it's THAT Hitmen!
  10:34am Cecile:

She kinda acted a little in the finale. I felt good for her.
  10:34am Cecile:

The Sydney-Ann Arbor love lives on!
  10:36am Janet H:

I want to hear Flight of the Conchords too....
  10:37am Chris:

Did anyone see a news bit about Dylan's neighbors getting upset with him because he set up porta-potties outside his home and has his guests use them?
  10:37am Cecile:

they reissued Jawbox stuff? nice
  10:37am dc pat:

what are the bad-English-kids-from-the-50's pics from?
  10:37am Cecile:

How many guests does he have?!?!?!?!
  10:39am Bad Ronald:

@ DCP:
  10:40am dei x:

well, there's the family from photo 7, plus all the hippies who have lived 50 years without indoor plumbing
  10:41am Cecile:

it's not new.
It's about 14 years old.
  10:41am dc pat:

oh...thanks Bad Ron.
  10:43am Cecile:

Oh, Ken, you don't.
It's a mess here in Mpls.
  10:43am dc pat:

'cile: Yeah, I was gonna though, right?
  10:44am Cecile:


  10:45am Bryant:

Hey, Ken -- have you heard the new Al Jourgensen Christmas single?
  10:47am ?:

Lovely ice and snow day here in NE Pennsylvania!
  10:50am Gigantor:

You couldn't just let it be, could you, Ken...
  10:51am SmokinJ:

I'll trade you OUR snowstorm for YOUR mescaline Ken..
  10:51am Carmichael:

Good morning Kenneth and fellow frozen denizens of the airwaves.
  10:54am NS Andy:

whoops Ken; that didn't sound Kosher
  10:54am Tiger Woods:

Love IS the drug.
  10:55am Maria D:

Help me get out of my bloody head that Paparrazi song I heard on my way to work.
  10:57am Cecile:

Maria D:

5! 5! 5 dollar foot long!
  10:57am BSI:

back now.
you may resume "fun"...
  10:57am Leighton Buzzard Ron:

Can we have more sounds of loons please, Ken? It's been so long...
  11:03am fishmonkeystew:

Hooray for the train whistle!
  11:04am Leighton Buzzard Ron:

That was smashing, Ken. Thanks!
  11:13am Gary Coleman:

Whatchu talkin' 'bout, Willis?
  11:15am Godot:

Verizon,? You might as well be waiting for me.
  11:16am BSI:

.....mister indisposed........
  11:17am antinomy:

Mr. Squiggles Antinomy!
  11:17am jojo:

orinn hatch hanukah song?
  11:17am Mark:

the keyboard on this is AWESOME!!!
  11:18am Tom:

  11:18am AnAnonymousParty:

"Every bit as good as the Bob Dylan Christmas record".
I like that. I'm gonna use that.
  11:18am BSI:

all of us DC folks are still waiting for the release of Marion Barry's version of this one...
  11:19am Carmichael:

Keep those train whistles blowing, Ken, and you'll be committed to playing some Boxcar Wille.

Or Yodeling Andy.
  11:21am TC Chuck:

I'm streaming uh, White Christmas? Indeed, Love is da rug!
  11:21am north guinea hills:

I concur w/ Mark's assessment of the keyboard for the Healey family.
  11:21am bennett4senate:

right in time for MR BOB
  11:21am Cecile:

I love this.
I want to do a mash of this and Killdozer.
  11:21am Dan B From Upstate:

I love it. I step away for my morning break, and the very very first thing I hear when I put my headphones back on... is the Bob Dylan Christmas album. I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy it and play it for my family this Christmas. It'll be a future warning against making me angry.
  11:21am annie:

now i know what this reminds me of: he is singing from the can...seems to be stuck on some note or something ;)
  11:22am Cecile:

  11:22am Concerned Listener:

Holy Crap. Dylan sounds three sheets to the wind. I was wondering how bad his Christmas album would sound. Fascinating and a little sad.
  11:22am Gigantor:

Thank you for the Bob Dylan, Ken. I still can't decide if this is crap or not, so i need to hear it more.
  11:22am NS Andy:

Got Liquid Plummr?
  11:23am Chris:

Poor, misunderstood Dylan.
  11:23am paul:

merry xmas zatumba!!!!!!!
  11:23am trs:

Poor, misunderstood listening audience
  11:23am AnAnonymousParty:

I can't wait to see the 'Making of the Bob Dylan Christmas album" video on VH1 'Classic Albums'.
  11:23am Chris:

Or clueless Dylan?
  11:24am Huey:

Is the Dylan Xmas album a free download, or does one have to pay for it? I need some real hard plum pudding.
  11:24am Lizardner Dave:

I'm firmly in the "like" camp on the Dylan record. It sounds like Christmas on a grimy, forgotten sidestreet with bums passed out under snow-covered cardboard.
  11:25am mark:

just think if Bob had cleared his throat between takes on his xmas album
  11:26am trs:

I think it sounds like a cash grab
  11:26am AnAnonymousParty:

I think the RIAA would give anyone a free pass for downloading Dylan Christmas music ... or their hearts truly are black as coal.
  11:27am Chris J:

Or Dylan could be goofing a la Roseanne with the National Anthem. Hmm ... naw.
  11:28am Lizardner Dave:

Trs - the proceeds for the Dylan album go to charity. Not a cash grab.
  11:29am TC Chuck:

Just discovered the podcast show "Codpaste" with People and Ergo. So if you like this Femme Fatale, check out the archives!
  11:30am trs:

Then it's a charity cash grab.. Just as whanky in my mind, given the overplay, replay,.. bleg
  11:31am TC Chuck:

That WAS Bob clearing his throat between takes.
  11:32am trs:

and hey, the PR for the "artist" and his record company is a form of cash grubby grab grab
  11:32am Cecile:

thanks, Ken!
I have to order that.

Go Chris Knox!
  11:33am LizGig:

Ken, where are the dodgy photos of men listening to phonographs?
  11:36am bennett4senate:

te quiero mucho, Ken
  11:36am Carmichael:

Teach Me, Tiger!
  11:41am Chris:

This Music for Mentalists has some great stuff on it.
  11:42am Janet H:

KEN, it's been a great playlist!!!
  11:42am Carmichael:

Good Lord, I never thought I'd ask to turn off Rene and Renata and play Dylan instead.
  11:43am bennett4senate:

this has been a great soundtrack for finding out that my docket is sealed and I don't have a bench warrant for sidewalk bike riding after all
  11:43am Gigantor:

Did you know that many of today's popular songs were actually written by the great masters...?
  11:44am LizGig:

Not bad, Ken, but that photo doesn't have the same soft porn patina of the girlie photos. The t-shirt's kinky though!
  11:45am Some guy:

Broads -- they're never satisfied, are they?
  11:45am BSI:

nice loop action. I'm gonna have to dig out my copy of Wiseblood's Death Rape 2000 now...
  11:46am still b/p:

A Soft Porn Patina song started sliding through my head to the tune of Waltzing Matilda...
  11:46am AnAnonymousParty:

And many more popular songs weren't actually written by anyone at all.
  11:47am Lizardner Dave:

Trs - point taken. All artists who have made enough money should stop making records even if they're for charity because all they are is cash grabs. Excellent idea.
  11:47am PMD:

Ken, I love that you are playing clips of yourself. GREAT
  11:47am Tom Baker:

Ah.... Symphony!
  11:48am BSI:

ah, that Soft Porn Patina... she still doesn't return my phone calls.
  11:48am dc pat:

by the way, my daughter is in the Nutcracker again this year so go see her. thanks.
  11:49am trs:

Hey, @Lizardner Dave that absolutist rendering is from your head, not mine. I was speaking directly of the Xmas Dylan album 2009.
  11:50am Lizardner Dave:

So you're saying Bob did a charity album of Christmas songs that most people hate because he wants to sell more of his other records. I apologize. That makes much more sense.
  11:53am PMD:

Ken, have a drunk Ken remix contest!!
  11:54am trs:

I simply expressed what it sounds like to me. In my ears -- not what someone else was thinking. Not some absolutist grand sweeping statement.

It sounds like a cash grab through and through in my ears, charity hook or not.
  11:56am Chris:

Dylan wouldn't hire anyone to clean his porta-potties, so maybe he does need the cash.
  11:58am SpongeBob SquarePants:

That guy don't know shit about bubbles.
  11:58am Ike:

Those goddamn greedy charities! They can't even apologize to a witch!

The more reasonable explanation is that Dylan's brain is not properly aligned with this plane of existence. Or that he's a witch.
  11:58am Patrick Star:

True, dat.
  11:59am Huey:

Will this (new Xmas album) be the biggest Dylan controversy since...Self Portrait?!
  11:59am Mark:

oh dear, let's not fight
  11:59am Cecile:

or he drank 26 oz of tequila before recording it.
  12:01pm dimbulb:

how about a corn weenie remix mixed with drum ken clips? anyone?
  12:02pm ?:

The guy in the picture looks familiar:
