Listener comments!

  3:04am sue:

Hi, Joe! Good morning! How goes it?
  3:08am Joe:

Hey, Sue! You're up so early this morning!
  3:11am Sue:

Yes, I'm keeping weird hours... went to sleep at around 7pm and got up at 2am... at least I got a good night's sleep, in a way. I don't know if I can keep this up. I like the tracks you're playing. Real upbeat, I really needed to hear stuff like this.
  3:15am Joe:

Stay with me, Sue. I'm going to play a tune just for you in a few minutes....
  3:16am Sue:

For li'l ol' me? Cool, I was planning on keeping you on anyhow...
  3:20am Joe:

Thanks, Sue! I like your company.
  3:21am jeff-m:

morning joe
  3:22am Sue:

Oh, wow!! Awesome! You're playing my song! :)
  3:24am Joe:

Hope you liked it! :)
  3:25am Joe:

Hey, Jeff! Glad to hear from you! Hope your season is progressing nicely!
  3:25am Sue:

You certainly made my morning. Thanks for that!
  3:33am Sue:

Yay! Screamers! Woo hoo!
  3:33am jeff-m:

i confess to laying pc games and chilling and chilling to ur show
  3:36am Joe:

Cool, Jeff! You can confess to me any old time. Glad you liked the Screamers, Sue!
  3:37am Sue:

You're unbelievable, your show is just amazing
  3:38am Joe:

Thanks, Sue! I hit a sweet spot!
  3:39am Sue:

Sure did! I'm ticked pink
  3:41am Sue:

You've gotta be kidding me... I'm freaking out... even THIS??!! sweet jesus...
  3:45am Sue:

I need to take you out for a drink one of these days... you party animal
  3:46am Joe:

Ha ha! Party vegetable, more like. But I appreciate the offer! :)
  3:49am Sue:

Vegetables can be fun, too :) Nice Renaldo...
  3:50am Ilidas:

The Danza Meccanica and K. and the Plastic Spoons trax were good listening. Other than Michael Goodstein I feel like I don't get enough of the gems from the underground 80s
  3:51am Ilidas:

. . .on FMU
  3:52am Ilidas:

So, thanx!
  3:52am Joe:

Got ya, Ilidas. Michael is so incredible at what he does that he sometimes seems like the last stop! It's like trying to play soul 45s--nobody can approach Finewine. But it's nice to mix it up for us mere mortals...
  4:02am jeff-m:

gerswin originally? intersting jam whatever improv
  4:10am Joe:

Thanks, Jeff! Time to change gears again!
  4:39am jeff-m:

night man . cheers :)
  4:40am Joe:

Adios, Jeff! Thanks for checkin' in!
  4:45am Sue:

Hey, is this Laverne and Shirley? tee hee... cool!
  4:46am Joe:

I'm not too proud! I actually love this song.
  4:47am Sue:

Nothin' wrong with that! I don't think I've ever heard this in its entirety
  4:48am Joe:

Yeah, on the TV show you don't get the AWESOME sax solo!
  4:49am Sue:

hahahaha! Yes, they should have put that in there!
  9:27pm Mike Sin:

Awesome single file set there -- especially Tim Hardin and then Leon Russell battering Tim Hardin! re: Cindy Grecco -- yes, we remember "Laverne & Shirley" , but do we remember "Blansky's Beauties" (sp?)?
  10:01pm Chap:

Brother, you have done me a service. I've been looking for "Knock Knock" for a while, and it's beautiful to hear it in FMU-o-phonic. Thank you! The show is ace!
