Listener comments!

  9:01am Dan B From Upstate:

Good Wednesday morning, all!
  9:05am Bad Ronald:

Buenos dias muchachos y muchachas!
  9:09am Ken:

Good morning Bad Ronald and Dan!
  9:09am Jets girl:

Deeeeear kindly Sergeant Krupke,
It takes a steady nerve,
To check for legal hemlines,
And not feel like a perv...
  9:14am Ψ-Ns:

Modesty enforcement, or the Maytag repairman finding something to do with his time?
  9:15am Dan B From Upstate:

Lotta' end of the world and post-apocalypse movies lately. What's that about?
  9:17am John from Oslo:

Good morning Ken & all. I'm loving it!
  9:17am Parq:

I remember, when I first saw "Urrgh", being struck by what a good looking fellow John Otway was. I dunno about you, but I pictured this putty-nosed mug with circles under his eyes.
  9:21am cathy lane, toni daytona & the whole coffee klatch:

I'm really a crazy gay guy from TX, you know. Don't tell anyone.
  9:24am jan:

yay- teletubbies
  9:26am Cecile:

Hola, all!
  9:27am BSI:

  9:27am Cecile:

I love teletubbies.

My body resembles on now

YES, Ken. But my argument would be that they never surpassed their first singles.

  9:28am Cecile:

  9:29am dc pat:

sounds like a perfect time to follow up with 9353
  9:30am recession wretch:

the Recession Wretch saw Natalia Lafourcade's show last night at S.O.B.s, "direct from Mexico City," as they say . She's a multitalented dynamo, and still just 26 years old!
  9:31am LizGig:

Where did I go wrong? I want to do important work like playing The Homosexuals LP on the radio! Freeform radio DJ never figured in the career guidance information.
  9:31am paul:

  9:31am Dan B From Upstate:

Ah, I miss Space Ghost Coast to Coast.
  9:31am Dan B From Upstate:

Didn't Man or Astroman do this song? They also covered the Mystery Science Theater 3000 theme.
  9:32am Cecile:

yay! Space Ghost!

recesswretch that sounds excellent!

I'm a Zorak fan myself.
  9:32am Ken:

Cecile, that wasn't my theme song on WCBN. I'll giove a free FMU t-shirt to the fiorst person who can name my actual WCBN theme song though.
  9:33am paul:

that was Sonny Sharrock, i think MOAM did some of the later seasons
  9:33am Cecile:

LizGig, yes. I know. I know I know I know.
I still shop for music as if I'm doing freeform 80 hours a week.

Okay, who used that as their first song? I thought when you had that Wednesday show that was your theme.
  9:35am Janet H:

Good Morning!
  9:35am Cheri Pi:

I love this song by Crash! It's a real mood lifter.
  9:36am Bad Ronald:

Thanks for the language lesson Ken. It is now hanging on my wall.
  9:36am jtm:

I agree Cheri, sex with car crash victims is so uplifting!
  9:37am Dan B From Upstate:

Ken. I love this Crash tune. Is it only on the sampler you received from that record store? I need to get my hands on this.
  9:38am LizGig:

Cecile, I am jealous! You must have a spare house for your music collection.
  9:38am CheriPi:

DanB: You are reading my mind, I need that song too!
  9:38am Ken:

Dan, the French store Bimbo Tower, via their label (Poutre Apparente) might have re-released that song as a vinyl single. Not sure.
  9:39am Cecile:

Not quite. And thanks to mp3s it's been tidier of late

Only about 3000 CDs and 3000 albums and many non marked up tapes.
That's nothing compared to most of youse.
  9:41am LizGig:

Ken! Is that for me? So sweet! 'I'm gonna do what I want/Do what I want/And I'm gonna get paid'. Don't I wish - I keep trying, but I always end up stuck behind a desk despite my best efforts. But at least I can listen to FMU while I work.
  9:42am Dan B From Upstate:

Thanks, Ken. I'll look into it. CheriPi, I love your name! I wish I was clever enough to come up with a name like that, but I'm just stuck with my own name. :-(
  9:43am dc pat:

I think we're all in the same boat LizGig or else we wouldn't be sitting here commenting...*sigh*...
  9:46am Cecile:

yes, dcp. Yes.
  9:46am listener mark:

Great Show!
  9:47am LizGig:

Ken, particularly fantastic show today. Thanks for comforting all us wage slaves!
  9:48am Cecile:

In puppy cam news, the babies are sleeping and mama Shiba looks like she's having a doggie General Foods International Coffee moment.
  9:49am still b/p:

Someone needs to write a song; "Iggy on NPR".
  9:52am seang:

Doot! Do!
  9:53am dc pat:

b/p: I heard that Iggy interview the other day. Funny.
  9:55am NS Andy:

Love the loons- looking out the window here on St. Margarets Bay, Nova Scotia at 3 loons right now.
  9:59am annie:

oh god!!... i love the dancing band!! no bouncing thighs there!!
  10:03am cheerios:

Lovely sounds
  10:04am Cecile:

I think Wing and Ned Flanders should do a duet
  10:04am PMD:

Morning all! the hanging bears photo reminds me of what my brothers used to do with my teddy bears when I was young.
  10:05am dc pat:

more bouncing thighs please...
  10:05am JCityJensen:

Dear Internet,

Thank you for Ken and Wing this morning.

Bless the Corporatocracy,
  10:06am recession wretch:

only problem with Ken's show: not enough Bic Runga!
  10:07am too many yrs of catholic sch:

this is killin me
  10:10am Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Slow Zombies! They hate you too Ken...
  10:11am still b/p:

Now Iggy's an early "winner" in NPR's 50 Great Voices selected with public input. High-praisey and sneery finger-chewin' comments in reaction are smallll doses.
  10:11am BSI:

yeh, they're dead..... they're.... all messed up.
  10:11am Jesus:

Jesus Camp was a good zombie movie
  10:11am Kurt:

Fast zombies rule!
  10:12am art limb:

the real crash, movie
  10:13am Kat:

they're both based on JG Ballard (RIP)
  10:14am Cecile:

Taylor Negron is great. I've loved his standup for years.
  10:14am jeremy the listener:

sandra bullock, also a zombie, played a very convincing human in 28 days.
  10:15am Dan B From Upstate:

Night People is a great show. It's probably my third, or fourth, or fifth favorite show on WFMU.
  10:18am PMD:

Can Arnold apply these lessons to the CA budget?
  10:18am A Fan:

I'm sure these moves would indeed make the Governator look great in a dress.
  10:18am jk:

hey, I have this arnold on my ipod. my personal favorite is the tricep dip between chairs. it's a classic
  10:19am Cecile:

I want to find an animated GIF from SNL's "What's Up With That?" sketch.

I want Klaus Future (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) to make a whole record.
  10:19am tto many yrs of catholic sch:

U watch! Arnold, the next president of the United States! Ach tung babies
  10:22am Cecile:

I could use some Sylvester if you are up to it, Ken.
  10:23am dc pat:

"I don’t think zombies can run. Their ankles would snap!"

-George Romero
  10:27am Girly Man:

That Arnold stuff had me on the floor Ken. You make my body rock.
  10:27am Vicki:

Ken, stop whistling over this record
  10:27am Curmudgeon:

Finally, a show i can enjoy!
  10:28am Cecile:

The song:
"In the future, dogs will be cats, yah!
And in the future, shoes will be hats, yah!
And in the future, wrong will be right!
And in the future you will party all niiiiiiiiiight!"

He ends it with this great Klaus Nomi flourish . It's awesome. My favorite SNL skit in about 30 years.
  10:29am Cecile:

Aw, perfect. Thanks!
I love those bouncing girls!
  10:30am John from Oslo:

Been a funkin' long time since I last funked
  10:31am jeanne:

cool: must funk
  10:31am Rod Argent:

I assume I'm at least getting some royalties after all this Zombies content. I could use the money.
  10:32am Vicki:

Giorgio Moroder next please
  10:32am bennett4senate:

Ken, truly you are a Megatron Man.
You should play Menergy, one of those great "drop the needle and then leave the DJ booth so no one sees you there" Cowley power jams.
  10:32am Ne-guh-tor:

Go, Ken, you black transsexual, you! Funk it!
  10:33am Michelle:

I didn't realize how badly I wanted to funk until I was asked.
  10:34am Cecile:

Sylvester was all dude till the day he died. He just liked ladies' clothes a lot. And other dudes.
  10:35am Cecile:

  10:35am bennett4senate:

favorite Sylvester track is def "I Need Somebody to Love Tonight" such a good slow burner
  10:35am Ken:

how exactly are you planning on getting out of this one?
  10:36am Vicki:

sorry that was me, saying Ken,... duh
  10:36am dc pat:

all these loops are in 4s and 8s...kind of drives me nuts....ok that last break was 16 bars...
  10:36am kevin Oster:

where is ed mc mann
oh yeah
  10:37am jtm:

First The Man took the Funk away from the Communists but I did not care because I was not a communist.
  10:38am Cecile:

bennett, thanks, I haven't heard that before. It definitely sounds like something I'd want to download.
  10:38am jeanne:

Then he came for the priests
and since i wasn't a priest....i did not care
  10:38am bennett4senate:

Emerald Sapphire & Gold!!
  10:39am John from Oslo:

The DJ is gettin' laid tonite for sure!
  10:39am jeanne:

he lays with the fishes
  10:41am Ne-guh-tor:

Cecile: corrected! Sylvester is one of my fav transvestites!
  10:41am jeanne:

i mean plays
  10:42am Cecile:

He is (was) awesome.
  10:42am bennett4senate:

cecile - yes definitely check it out! Sylvester for those times when you don't want to be funked quite so hard. its the B side of the "Stars" 7", which you can get for like a dollar
  10:43am Chris:

I can't sleep, eat, go to work and I'm fighting with my wife because of those damn clowns.
  10:44am Cecile:

thanks, bennett!

this performance artist, Djola Branner, wrote and performaned a life of Sylvester, but I missed the show. the soundtrack is out on Innova records. He's teaching out East now, and is pitching a script. I would love to see this story done well..
  10:46am bennett4senate:

crap, I totally snapped my funk-inhibitor latch off during that Sylvester - can't stopppppp
  10:46am Chris:

Funk you Ken, and the train you rode in on!
  10:47am Carmichael:

Ken, Did they get the funk out of your face??
  10:48am crowe:

i have no problem with funking between consenting adults
  10:48am Cecile:

Cathy Smith. She has awesomely bad ones.
Try her Walk Fit one.
  10:49am BSI:

oh jeez, I've got this fantastic Toucan Sam workout flexi that came with a box of Froot Loops decades ago.... it would be perfect right about now.
  10:49am A Jew:

Didn't Gefilte Joe & The Fish give the funk back to the Jews?
  10:49am Bad Ronald:

I am the Fun King!
  10:49am SNAFU:

Situation normal -- all funked up
  10:50am jneilnyc:

The only one I have is the - rare, I assume - Traci Lords Workout Video, on VHS.

Let the jokes begin...
  10:51am Michelle:

Not sure if this is what you're looking for...but I found Cardioke on the On Demand channels the other day and it kind of scared me...
  10:53am WFMU:

We Funk the Music Up.
  10:53am Chris:

Funk Ken remix show!!!
  10:53am Jay:

In the early 80s, Canadian director Ron Harris created a show called "20 Minute Workout," which puts Baywatch to shame:
  10:54am north guinea hills:

weird, i just watched 24 hour party people Monday.....
  10:55am Bill:

24 Hour Party People Workout?
  10:55am An Out of Shape Listener:

So, Ken, now that you are suitably obsessing on workout records - will you do a workout record karaoke for the Hoof and Mouth - ?! Perhaps as Drunk Workout Record Ken...
  10:56am paul:

uhoh, it's the old rotting cd sound
  10:56am John from Oslo:

Pronunciation: \ˈfəŋk\
Function: noun
Etymology: probably ultimately from French dial. (Picard) funquer to give off smoke
Date: 1623
  10:57am Arch Stanton:

Yeah, I just lived 24hr party people last weekend...
  10:58am Carmichael:

Ron Harris! That's who I was trying to remember. Kind of a softcore porn Russ Meyer Cybil Danning Skin-a-Max series of *workouts*. Great entertainment, bad for working out.
  10:59am Carmichael:

C'mon, this is really Bela Lugosi, right??
  10:59am jan:

This show is classic, Ken. Great beats and rich cultural references.
  11:00am Dan B From Upstate:

Jeepers... I step away from my desk to take a break, and I come back and see all these funkin' comments? What the funk happened while I was gone?
  11:01am Cecile:

I still watch Gilad and "Bodies In Motion" on FitTV. He's still a tough taskmaster!
  11:01am Arch Stanton:

"Physical" by Olivia Newton-John.... please Ken, don't play that one...
  11:02am John from Oslo:

"Muscles" by Diana Ross.... please Ken, don't play that one...
  11:04am bennett4senate:

saw this coming
  11:05am Chris:

This reminds me of Pink Floyd's excellent work out video, The Wall - it got me into shape.
  11:09am John from Oslo:

but "Sick Manny's Gym" by "Lee DeLyon & The Musclemen" would be pleasing to the ear...
  11:12am jan:

deutschland uber disco- is this why they burned disco records in the 70's
  11:12am dc pat:

nice From Here To Eternity pic
  11:12am Bill:

There were some great "how to play hockey" records done in the 70's that are certainly worthy of attention. The Guy Lafleur disco record is always a hit around these parts.
  11:12am still b/p:

Good From Here to Beat Ernie B.!
  11:12am ginger tim:

I wouldn't mind hearing Rod McKuen's Easy In From "Slide - Easy In (Discus 7017; 1977).
  11:13am Ken:

No Jan, the NEXT song is why they burned disco records
  11:14am Chris:

Sinatra didn't even have to kill a horse to get that role, just a hooker.
  11:15am Bad Ronald:

That looks like Norm Macdonald holding the stool.
  11:17am sgt slaughter:

easy boys. save it for the japs.
  11:17am annie:

i was just thinking of larry!!
  11:18am dc pat:

I like Franky's acting WAY more than his singing.
  11:18am annie:

i agree...
  11:19am Listener zero:

How do I know it's Ken's show? When I hear the "I have nothing to say" jingle. Good morning, Mr. Freedman!
  11:19am Dan B From Upstate:

Oh, god... this song is awful... and it DOESN'T END!
  11:19am Shannon:

Hey, what's the source of the 00s chart?
  11:19am Cecile:

...or get yourself a gift certificate to the Smitten Kitten
  11:20am jan:

Red Holloway- fantastic- Can I assume that Ken has added the grunts
and other percussive voices?
  11:20am Lizardner Dave:

Funk it Zatumba, funk it!!!!!!
  11:20am Ike:

Holy asbestos particulates, this Red Holloway track is mind-boggling. I'm reacting with some odd noises of surprise that are surely puzzling my co-workers. (I almost wrote "mind-blogging," but that's a whole other future nightmare.)
  11:21am Bran:

I wonder if there's a connection between this Red and Mad Men's Joan "Red" Holloway.
  11:22am em:

we need a good ol' drunk ken "oh GOD!" in here.
  11:25am Dan B From Upstate:

Ken... have you been looping this, or is this song really this ungodly long?
  11:25am Lizardner Dave:

"So you ALBUM??????"
  11:26am paul:

why do you hate salamanders>?!?
  11:26am bennett4senate:

oh man, Least Wanted Song! Epic! I remember when my roommate playe me this - Komar and Melamid are amazing. Most Wanted Paintings are fantastic too!
  11:27am Bran:

love the way the less helpful comments flicker on my screen for 1/30 of a second.
  11:29am dc pat:

"you can't efen to appologize to a witch!"
  11:31am Frederick Loewe:

Is that Reichs Harrison?
  11:33am aka DJ Salamander:

Drunk Ken remix show!!!
Drunk Ken remix show!!!
  11:34am Alcohol:

Demon Rum = Demon Ken

Leave "handling your liquor" to the white trash.
  11:34am jeanne:

yer nuthin is refrushin!
  11:41am Brendan:

Is the Terry Riley version comin' up???
  11:42am north guinea hills:

I love the terry riley version!
  11:43am John McCabe in LA:

just getting out of bed
  11:43am XNet:

Also had to think of Terry Riley instantly.
  11:43am Dan B From Upstate:

How do you slide in boots like that?
  11:48am Tom:

Hey, *I* could do that move. OK, probably I couldn't make it look as good in that dress. Cruisin'!!!!!!!!!
  11:50am Chris:

I'm sure MJ was just as happy when he received a kid for Christmas.
  11:51am MJ:

HI, everybody!!! Luv ya!!!! There really are 72 virgins in paradise!!!! W00t!!!!
  11:51am Ike:

I love the stalling tape. Many kinds of tape are excellent but the stalling tape is the beset.
  11:52am Ike:

OOPS, that's BEST! BEST! The best! Not "beset." I've been beset upon by grammatical footpads. Sheesh.
  11:53am Lizardner Dave:

Why does Michael Jackson like twenty six year olds?

Because there's twenty of them.
  11:56am jeanne:

s kurva, the sound of "the runs" !!!
  11:56am Vicki:

ha ha - Szeki Kurva
  11:57am Lizarder Dave:

Sorry, that's "There are".
  12:00pm Dan B From Upstate:

Fantastic show today. Thank you very much!
  6:59am Erik:

Nothing never didn't sound this bad.
