  9:20am Janet H:

loser by Beck
  9:21am Cecile:

Moxley should have done what Teddy would have done. Gladhanded and got down in the trenches.
Obama ran a better race than she did, and it wasn't his seat to win or lose.

  9:21am sinister dexter:

people like us inaugural poem mashup?
  9:23am Some random guy:

Hi, Ken! When you come to London to do a live show? There's a Bimbo store here (well, no).
  9:26am PMD:

Happy Birthday Janet!
Ken - for the democrats - Love Stinks.
  9:26am Ne-guh-tor:

  9:34am nasok:

  9:35am Queen:

"Another One Bites The Dust"
  9:35am Michelle:

Morning! Getting to listen this morning for the first time in ages. Loving the show as always, Ken!
  9:36am Jesus with Sword:

Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition:

Coded references to biblical passages are inscribed on gunsights widely used by the US and British military in Iraq and Afghanistan, it has emerged.

The markings include "2COR4:6" and "JN8:12", relating to verses in the books of II Corinthians and John.

Trijicon, the US-based manufacturer, was founded by a devout Christian, and says it runs to "Biblical standards".
  9:44am I'm a Loser...:

...and I'm not what I appear to be...
  9:47am Leiber and Stoller via Peggy Lee:

If that's all there is, my friend, then let's keep dancing.
  9:48am Chris:

"my clown" by july
  9:49am Irwin:
  9:50am Tsk Tsk:

I know Hitler was a socialist, Irwin, but that's below the belt :-P
  9:51am Ne-guh-tor:

Ken! You must be channeling something true today! Once again, I must find more money to give to WFMU! Thank you.
  9:52am Greg G:

41 no’s, one more than before, who knew or would even guessed to know!

No thanks, no way, none of the above, all 41 of em’, never liked tea anyway…

... especially in a bag … that much I do know, no, no.
  9:54am Terry Malloy:

So what happens? He gets the title shot outdoors on the ballpark and what do I get? A one-way ticket to Palookaville.
...I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am,
  9:57am Jeanne!:

Please God put down the pipe and go to Haiti
  9:58am trs:

  9:59am Bad Ronald:

this is quite lugubrious.
  9:59am Chris:

this is the most disturbed thing i've heard on ken's show...and that's saying a lot.
  10:00am Cecile:

I have a meeting. I'll see you in an hour or so!
  10:00am J-Mar:

this show is weirding me out. big time.
  10:00am Webhamster Henry:

If God were only voiced by Joe Frank!
  10:00am Mark:

Ken, do you have more recordings by God?
  10:01am anna:

i feel like i'm listening to the twin peaks of radio.
  10:01am GenericPlacebo:

perfect for reading the latest Bukowski net post from OUI magazine 1981
  10:01am ?:

Please stop this Ken, this is aural guantanamo
  10:02am Ne-guh-tor:

will be staying out of stairwells!
  10:02am Margaret:

Are you there, God? It's me...
  10:02am Dan B From Upstate:

Seems like an appropriate place to stick in a drunken Ken "OH GOD!"
  10:02am Michael:

And, just like the gas chambers and ovens in the death camps, those who rejected me went immediately from the hell of panic and burning jet fuel to somewhere far, far, far, worse, that never,ever, will end. Because I love you so much.
  10:04am Ne-guh-tor:

You could record the Silent night 2001 from YouTube. It sounds good.
  10:05am dc pat:

ah, crap missed Thunders. Democrats are pa-fucking-thetic...
  10:05am Mark:

perhaps there is a better copy here:
  10:06am Gerald Fnord:

Whenver I hear some conservative mention how 'liberal' Mass. is, much as when one calls Obama 'socialist', all I can say is an hearty, 'I <i>wish</i>.'
  10:07am Ne-guh-tor:

Fake David Bowie? Richard Butler of Psychedelic Furs!
  10:07am PMD:
  10:07am dc pat:

fake Bowie: how about Richard Butler?
  10:08am Mark:

fake David Bowie for sure:
  10:08am dc pat:

you and me ne-guh-tor...
  10:09am Ne-guh-tor:

Poor Man's Bowie! Me and You dc pat...
  10:09am Webhamster Henry:

WFMU: More Autoharp!
  10:09am paul:
  10:10am Greg G:

I know a guy named David who lives in Bowie, Maryland ... he always did wear a fake Rolex watch, but has a terrible singing voice, does that count?
  10:11am trs:

I found Hedwig (w/ his angry inch) to be lacking originality in the Bowie dips
  10:12am Ne-guh-tor:

  10:13am Ne-guh-tor:

  10:13am Secret:

You love a corpse, you creep.
  10:14am Chris:

Fake David Bowie = Anything by Destroyer
  10:15am Jay:

How bout something off of "Pass the dust, I think I'm Bowie," by Black Randy & the Metrosquad?
  10:18am ?:

jane's accent sucks
  10:21am bbell:

Hello Sweden! My husband is in Gothenburg, which just officially changed its name from the Swedish version Goteborg, so the foreigners would not have difficulty with the pronunciation (there is an umlaut over the first 'O', but I couldn't find the key!)
  10:23am David R. Jones:

I'm the real David Bowie. Every successive David Bowie, from psychedelic folkie to Marc Bolan imitator to Ziggy to the Thin White Duke etc., is the fake David Bowie. Madonna's career shows that she learned at least that much, obviously.
  10:34am DF:

Re: Jane's accent

I know, four words of French, you would think she could have learned to pronounce them. I always think of her as "Annie Eroteek"
  10:42am Jimm:

Ken, I want to recommend a larger home page image, or a link to a larger version. They're always great images, but too small for my corjections.
  10:42am Mark:

mais oui c'est soixante-neuf
  10:43am dc pat:

Wanda! Is Sparkle Moore still alive, I'd rather he interview her...
  10:46am Detroit Mac:

In mourning for the Democrats and along the theme of the NJ Medical Reefer bill, how about: "Seeds and Stems Blues " by Commander Cody?
  10:47am north guinea hills:

I wonder who will represent the Earthling era Bowie?
  10:47am moi:

bowie sans bowie! soixant-doof
  10:47am seang:

probably some solo peter murphy--cuts you up
  10:49am cosmic:

hey everyone, hey ken, bad ronald, cecile,.. everyone. checking in, im not too late am i?
  10:50am paul:

nice!!! unfortunately i couldnt find the Sifl & Olly video for this on youtube
  10:50am David R. Jones:

We know Major Tom's a NJ junky.
  10:50am Michelle: you have "Space Oddity" as covered by The Langley Schools Music Project?
  10:51am Bad Ronald:

Hey Cosmic, long time, how've ya been?
  10:51am Kevin:

Never mind Major Tom, what about The Laughing Gnome?
  10:51am north guinea hills:

...or Labyrinth era Bowie?
  10:52am seang:

cecile, you're missing Flight of the Conchords!
  10:54am dc pat:

The Fake Bowie Song was amazing..

  10:54am Ken:

For the record, the next track is a Bryan Ferry parody but I've run out of Bowie songs..
  10:54am cosmic:

hey bad ronald, goood, thanks! how bout you? been far too long! ..loving this bowie numbehr
  10:55am Bad Ronald:

  10:55am ted:

I think Bowie copied Eno on this one.
  10:56am Bad Ronald:

Faring well my friend. Nice to see you!
  10:56am bennett4senate:

ken don't stop the (faux) bowie -
  10:56am cosmic:

whats all the politics comments about? (being very ignorant today)
  10:57am postmanpaul:

  10:57am cosmic:

you too old pal! "_" you too!
  10:58am David R. Jones:

Wouldn't it make a shorter, easier list to just mention who I didn't copy? I even copied disco. Hi, losers!
  10:59am cosmic:

(im glad these maths sums are easy today
  11:01am Carmichael:

Good morning Ken and non-Kens alike.
  11:01am (mta) Tony:

T. Roth and Another Pretty Face were often mistaken for Bowie, in case you were looking for additional artists with Bowie similarities... Good morning all!
  11:01am cosmic:

hey postmanpaul, i was in b-right-on in sept! for one day and one night, there was a festival on the seafront called white surf or something and the doves headlined, they were so boring. we went and found a punk pub
  11:04am ted:

For another Bowie copy, try Fill Your Heart by Biff Rose
  11:08am Carmichael:

Didn't Insect Trust have something to do with Staempfel/Weber and/or the Holy Modal Rounders/Fugs?
  11:09am seang:

i think they were from Memphis
  11:10am Carmichael:

Via Kevin Bacon, I mean.
  11:12am Baba:

Could you kindly mention what is your background music, for "DJ speaks" segments?
  11:13am ted:

Ken, I am sure you know but just for the record. Fill Your Heart was written by Biff Rose and Bowie covered it exactly.
  11:13am north guinea hills:

I think the Xenakis w/o Xenakis is genius!
  11:13am A listener:

The Insect Trust song was great. They actually did two albums - the other simply "The Insect Trust". Not sure about the Rounders connection, but they did feature Robert Palmer, the late great groundbreakingly eclectic NY Times music writer.
  11:14am dc pat:

YES the puking song!!
  11:14am dc pat:

or a remix there-of...
  11:15am bennett4senate:

Michelle Obama shaking hands with people LIVE RIGHT NOW
  11:15am Brian:

Say, when your playlist reloads, it jumps to the top rather than the bottom. You might try reversing the display order so the most recent rises to the top.
  11:16am Keilidh:

This track is so puketastically awesome! For real..

  11:18am Chris:

I'm waitin' for that dog to bite someone.
  11:20am dc pat:

fender p bass in this Dave Cloud tune.
  11:20am Ken:

Brian, the name of the current track always is displayed - see where it says "Now Playing"? That background music before was Haruomi Hiosono's Nostalgia of Island.
  11:23am Ne-guh-tor:

  11:24am dc pat:

aaaaahhhh, Buttholes...
  11:27am dc pat:

if you listen to the music in Flipper tunes (w/out vocals) it sounds a lot like old Ex. Never noticed that before.
  11:28am john:

wow you really have come to the flipper side.
  11:28am dc pat:

buttholes > flipper >5678's = Pat's Paradise
  11:29am Maria D:

Still suffering from cold sweats over hearing God speak to us from the ashes of 9/11.
  11:29am iiiiiiiike:

Nice pic of Cybermen (1960s British Borg) menacing Zoe up there (next to Shudder to Think). You can always rely on 1960s episodes of Doctor Who for some goofy, odd, ultra-low-budget, yet eerie images. British kids of the time were supposedly actually really, really scared by the Cybermen, which is hard to believe now.
  11:32am Chris:

...not as scary as creepy british kids who can read minds...children of the damned, right?
  11:32am postmanpaul:

hi cosmic, nice to see ya 'bout again. yeah, that was the White Air extreme water sports and music fest...I remember it differently cosmic. I was delivering mail at approx 11 am, meditating idly, as one does. when hell shit fuck the red arrows strafed at roof top level out of the fog, repeadly. the fun had begun. needless to say, undergarments were paid attention to asap.
  11:32am Carmichael:

I could dig hearing any song that was ever played on Shindig, Hullabaloo or Where the Action Is.
  11:33am Nick:

Wow! Green Door! I haven't heard that since ~1955. Wasn't as good a version as this, though.
  11:35am Keilidh:

P da P. P da P.
P da P. P da P.
I'm your biggest fan.
  11:36am Cecile:


Receiving transmission from David Bowie's nipple antennae...
  11:36am ?:

K E I L I ! ! ! i'm well thanks, isn't kens show quite groovy today?!
hows art college, yer mam and all that jazz?
  11:38am Cecile:

I need to get that Matias Aguayo.
Just when I think Kompackt can't get any better.
  11:39am postmanpaul:

Keilidh, the pleasure's all mine, i'm sure.
  11:40am cosmic:

paulthepostman, hahaha classic! we only got down there at night. and caught last bit of one band and then the headline snoozefest. i flew up there the in the morning and drew at a shop from 9am til close and we all went out and drank rum!
  11:40am north guinea hills:

Agreed, Cecile.
  11:40am Keilidh:

Y A Y ! ! !
I'm presenting my portfolio on February 6th. Ma mama is goood and making and selling jewelry and I miss you and the airwaves!
  11:41am Keilidh:

And I agree with the grooviness.
  11:42am Cecile:

ngh, did you ever see that documentary called Maestro? It's about the origins of house/garage music, but it's pretty much just old bitter people talking about how life sucks since the Loft and the Paradise Garage closed. It's still pretty great, though. I'm about 3/4 way thru it.
  11:42am BSI:

mashy mashy!
  11:43am north guinea hills:

I'll look it up, Cecile!
  11:43am Cecile:

They're not real AC/DC fans. That should be Bon singing it. ;D
Actually, I like Brian much better now since I saw AC/DC live last year. I understand his role.
  11:44am Cecile:

there is some stunning dancing in it. And lots of footage of joyful, decadent people living it up. Always good.
  11:44am anna:

twin peaks!
  11:46am postmanpaul:

ken, love the pic of the ape stuck to the car window, or is that a dog?
  11:47am BSI:

I had an AC/DC epiphany as well.....
Bon Scott is Elmo. Elmo of Sesame Street fame. Seriously. Play any old track (For Those About To Rock, for instance) and think ELMO. It's awesome. Maybe others have made this connection already but man, it was PROFOUND.
  11:47am Ken:

Hahahah Paul, it's a DAWG!
  11:48am north guinea hills:

I thought I heard a hint of a Badalamenti samples.
  11:50am Cecile:

Bon never sang For Those About to Rock.
He was dead at the time.
  11:53am BSI:

ah, ha! I have senile dementia!
I was thinking of Back in Black, probably. I'm not a super fan, but I appreciate the grit and ugliness of it all. ... now, where's my pills?
  11:54am BSI:

Speaking of senile dementia, wow, haven't heard this DOA track in a bucket o' years...
  11:57am Carmichael:

Sounds like Speedy Gonzalez, the fastest mouse in all Me-hi-co.
  11:59am bennett4senate:

yes! thanks for the Animaniacs Ken! seems Yacko may have missed a few micro-nations. keep in mind, that was like what, 1997 or so? things change
  11:59am trs:

Did he say Burma or Myanmar?
  12:00pm north guinea hills:

I believe Yacko did that in 1990(?). But, still no excuse for Sumatra, Borneo, or Guam...
  12:39pm Natalie:

Thank you for all of the great songs, Ken. But I have to disagree about Workshop, "You can be good at things." That is a very good Workshop song from their happiest period. Please, please play them more often. We haven't heard "Pillow Junction" in a long time.
