  9:11am Skirkie:

I was trudging to my car this morning thinking, "If Ken's not on the radio this morning, so help me I'll..." and not finishing the thought.

At least Ken is still in his old time slot - Wednesday mornings are still special

Participated last night in a public beating/ribbing/cliff-noting of Ulysses. As close as I'll likely get to reading it.
  9:31am Ken From Hyde Park:

That sounds complicated. I have VLC media player, which I believe is open sourced. Is that helpful?
  9:33am Aaron:

  9:42am Michelle in Green Bay:

That was the best cover of Bohemian Rhapsody since it was rendered by one Constantine Maroulis on American Idol. Yeah, I watched it. Wanna make something of it?
  9:42am north guinea hills:

I like the drone of the vuvuzelas, but not the volume.
  9:42am Ken:

got booted offline there... back now!
  9:42am Michelle in Green Bay:

I like the word vuvuzela.

  9:49am Ken From Hyde Park:

Switzerland plays Spain in World Cup soccer later today. Ken, do you have plans to watch the match with the locals? Your guest's voice is a little quiet. Was hard to hear his responses. I vote yea for vuvuzelas.
  9:51am Dan B From Upstate:

God bless europeans for knowing so many languages. I wish I knew at least two, and it seems most europeans can know up to 4 or 5. Geniuses, they are!
  9:52am Doc:

How's your basel metabolism?
  9:54am Bad Ronald:

I like vuvuzelas if they are properly groomed.
  9:54am Mommy:

Don't play with your vuvuzela in public , sweetie
  9:55am Dickdong:

@em. It's one of the Albrechtsberger Concerti for Jews Harp
It is rarely performed. I saw it in Oxford UK two or three years ago played by Michael Wright
  9:56am Mark:

I'm drifting here
  9:57am Jpyce Stiftung, Zurich:

We always celebrate Bloomsday. Augustinergasse, 3rd Floor.

Hello Switzerland! Greetings Ken. Will 7SD be a repeat tonight?
  9:59am Ken From Hyde Park:

Can you post some pictures from Basel?
  9:59am Lizardner Dave:

I'm pro-vuvwhatsis. Any athlete who can't deal with crowd noise should go play golf or tennis.
  9:59am Miriam:

Can you post pictures of the radio village? Or a link to a site with photos? Sounds like a great place and I wanna see it.
  10:01am postmanpaul:

cuckoo cuckoo cuckoo cuckoo cuckoo cuckoo cuckoo cuckoo cuckoo cuckoo
  10:01am cosili:

  10:04am Ken:

Thanks Cosili, sorry I couldnt get pics together for this week...
  10:04am cosili:

sadly there's no english version yet.
  10:06am north guinea hills:

Spain & Switzerland game is on.
  10:07am Wendy del Formaggio:

The studios at Open Broadcast are lovely. I love the colors.
  10:07am cosili:

it's cosy here, yes.
  10:08am Ken From Hyde Park:

I spent a week in Switzerland about 17 years ago. I rented a bike from a train station and rode from Chur up to Arosa and then coasted back down the mountain on a chilly Easter Sunday morning. Took me an hour or more to get warmed up again.
  10:08am trs:

hey look, er listen - it's Ken. Are you on a rowboat, Ken? Great un-Wednesday fill-ins
  10:09am Wendy del Formaggio:

Cosili, it looks like a wonderful place. Some day when I get to Europe for a cheese tour, I'd love to come visit!
  10:10am bbell:

That's funny you say that, I started craving cheese while listening to the broadcast!
  10:11am Media Expert:

What, no pictures on a radio show?
  10:12am bbell:

I just checked out the photos of the open broadcast studios, the walls are painted the colors of gelato. I love that European sense of style.
  10:12am Wendy del Formaggio:

Bbell, no surprise there! Ken *IS* broadcasting from Switzerland, home to a great number of delicious cheeses! :-)
  10:13am Ken:

I know, I know, it's not REALLY a radio show without pictures, but I'm jetlagged beyond belief and I just couldnt get it together. my apologies. next week, it'll be a REAL Radio show.
  10:13am paul:

woah, Future Sound Of London circa ISDN. nice!
  10:13am bbell:

He should sample some raclette tonight.
  10:17am Wendy del Formaggio:

Or Forsterkase! (sorry about my lack of umlauts...)
  10:18am Lizardner Dave:

  10:18am Cecile:

HAH! I was hoping to hear some Wire.
Happy Wednesday, Ken.

Wendy, I have an amusing cheese story for you if you'd like to hear it.
  10:19am Swami:

Jetlagged? Whatever! Loving the show; great to have you back lil buddy!
  10:19am cosili:

more cheese please
  10:22am postmanpaul:

Switzerland are looking reasonably composed against a continuous attacking barrage from the Spanish Armada. The score is 0-0 as I comment.
  10:22am Cecile:

We were at a farmer's marker and stopped by a goat cheese booth. Now in WI and MN you can't sell fresh cheese with raw milk for domestic animal or human consumption until it's been aged 60 days. So the guy was marketing it as "fish bait!"
It was yummy but I went with the 5-year old cave-aged stuff. You can only eat a few shreds at a time, but it's amazing.
  10:22am bbell:

Better together, ümlauts and cheese! (if you have a mac, hit option and u together, then let go and type your letter that will go under the ümlaut.)
  10:25am Wendy del Formaggio:

Cecile, it's not just a WI and MN law, it's an FDA thing. Phooey to that, I say! Anyway, that's a funny idea from the goat cheese guy :-)
5-year cave-aged goat cheese?!? What's the name of the farm/cheesemaker. Do you know?
  10:25am Wendy del Formaggio:

Bbell, I have a PC, so no umlauts for me :-(
  10:25am Tour guide:

Not sure if you have time or if it's anywhere near Basel but I've always wanted to visit this place:
  10:25am Ken:

Cheese Songs are on the way...
  10:25am Bad Ronald:

A cashier at a grocery shop said she couldn't sell me a chunk of Stilton that I wanted because it was bad. I told her it's supposed to be bad...
  10:27am Cecile:

not off the top of my head, but I'll be going back. I might be able to find it by looking at the Farmer's Market page, too!
  10:28am fishmonkeystew:

Welcome back, Ken!
  10:30am Wendy del Formaggio:

Bad Ronald, that's right! You tell her! Stilton does get too old, but at which point is in the eye -- or mouth -- of the beholder :-)
  10:31am Bad Ronald:

  10:32am Cecile:

Agh, website is being silly.
Yes, it's amazing cheese - flinty and spicy and minerally with no cream taste at all. Very complex and you only need a couple of shreds to get great flavor. It's good on pasta, or mix in a little to your cheese mix for pizza.
  10:33am bbell:

@Cecile, what's the name of that cheese, I must find some!
  10:33am jojo:

hey, anybody know if an internet radio will access WFMU? what about the other streams
  10:33am Wendy del Formaggio:

Cecile, if you figure it out, would you contact me via my Website?
Thanks! :-)
  10:34am Bill Bruford:

4/4 is NOT an unusual time signature?
  10:35am Bill Bruford fan:

It is for you, dude.
  10:36am still b/p:

Baaaaarely hear him. Mike up or music down.
  10:37am bbell:

@Wendy del Formaggio, I just looked up Fosterkäse, mmmmmmm!!! You have inspired a quest!
  10:38am Shecky Cheese:

It's the vuvuzela of cheeses.
  10:39am Scott W:

talkover's really loud, can hardly hear Colin. tho Ken's mic is loud and clear
  10:40am Cecile:

Kristin Schaal! Yay!
  10:40am Wendy del Formaggio:

Bbell: Hooray! It's not easy to find, but it'll be in better cheese shops, especially those in or near metropolitan areas.
  10:40am Wow!:

hardly hear? There's a radio show that goes with this page???
  10:40am Cecile:

wendy, I sure will!
  10:41am Cecile:

@bbell, "5-year cave aged goat cheese"
  10:41am Skirkie:

Goats... that's where it's at.
  10:42am Goat:

  10:44am Wendy del Formaggio:

I wonder if Ken has any music about goats. Or performed by goats...
  10:45am bbell:

@Cecile and all the milk goats: Thank you!
  10:45am The Mountain Goats:

We already had enough trouble with drunk Ken. Thanks but no thanks.
  10:46am drewo:

Scoreless at the half between Switzerland and Spain in World Cup play. Should the Swiss lose, be careful Ken of the riotous hurling of chocolate and cheese in the streets of Basel.
  10:47am Crazed Announcer:


  10:51am Wendy del Formaggio:

Uh oh, time for me to get going to work. It was nice chatting with you all today. Have a great time in Basel, Ken!

  11:00am Whos in Whoville:

  11:01am Rack 'n Roll:

  11:01am Vanilla Spice:

  11:06am Slosh Spice:

  11:09am north guinea hills:

  11:12am Crazed Announcer:

O right! Oops! My bad!

  11:16am cosili:

  11:17am Stephen Hawking:

  11:17am Spain:

Those cheese-eating Swiss pussies can't beat us. I'm gonna riot, I tell ya, RIOT!!!!!
  11:27am bbell:

Yummy show, Ken, on many levels. Out to my garden now with a transistor radio. Great cheese suggestions today, too, a big thank you to the cheese loving ladies! Will try to find some of their suggestions at Fairway.
  11:27am Carmichael:

"We were the champions, my friend,
But we got our butts kicked in the end..."
  11:45am cosili:

  11:46am Carmichael:

I'm eating a falafel, which somehow makes everything better.
  11:48am Spain:

I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me.
  11:52am Tuffz McGruff:

the BEEP is a lie.
  11:53am wilhelm tell:

  11:53am Honduras:

  11:59am Playlist:

  12:01pm Lizardner Dave:

Is anyone keeping the World Cup death toll this time around? Ken? Someone on Beware of the Blog?
  12:37pm Goyim in the AM (Colin):

I wasn't quiet, the mike was lame. Ken was a gracious radio host in someone else's home. Wiped my bike out on the way home (hit some wet trolley tracks) but remained injured. I enjoyed being part of the Wednesday experience.
  12:38pm Goyim in the AM (Colin):

remained uninjured, I meant to say. Perhaps I have brain damage.
  1:31pm Oly Brando:
