Listener comments!

  12:02am Danne D:

Hi Therese!
AWESOME start to the show!
Shout out to those fighting for workers to have rights in Wisconsin!
  12:06am dave:

What Danne said. Though as someone who grew up in Minnesota, I have to say I'm a bit conflicted about being so proud of the mob in Madison.
  12:08am FMU Idiot:

UAW Local 259. Yea power to the Union!
  12:09am coalhard:

it boils down to corporate control of america--you don't want that
  12:13am Skirkie:

This radio show kills fascists.
  12:15am fleep:

coalhard i think we may be too late on that one. the ghosts of robber barons have invaded the minds of the young turks
  12:17am dave:

It's never too late, and nothing is inevitable.
  12:19am Danne D:

Amen to that Dave.

I thought I couldn't possibly love Therese anymore and here she rolls out this set!
  12:20am Nanker:

Cool play there with The Mekons!
  12:21am fleep:

@dave you are correct of course, i was letting the sunday papers get to me. there is a way through this.
  12:21am Upper East Jeff:

Keep fightin' those cuts Therese. Awesome set!
  12:25am Ben from Madison:

Wisconsin is with you to Therese.
  12:25am Danne D:

Well we're fighting to keep that from happening Therese.

There are legislative elections this year (2011) in NJ and you can send the governor a message loud and clear.
  12:25am dave:

"Madison.. to Trenton.": from your mouth to God's ears.
  12:27am Danne D:

me too Therese - I got a scholarship from UFCW Local 464A
  12:28am Skirkie:

I ♥ the submarine.
  12:30am Danne D:

speaking of the marathon, those of you who are lucky to have a job still these days you can show super support for the fabulous Therese by adopting her!

  12:31am Danne D:

Sent you that great pic I took from yesterday Therese via e-mail
  12:32am Skirkie:

Marathon shifts and adoption decision/papers will be filled out within the next few days. You beat me to the punch this year, Danne D, kudos.
  12:33am coalhard:

  12:33am dave:

i avoided the necessity of elbow/hair dancing by lurking against a wall at the maxwell's show. but holy crap was that place packed.
  12:34am Danne D:

LOL Skirkie, I had to get Terre T otherwise I would be disowned I fear.
  12:34am UFCW Local 881:

...screwed over rank-and-file entry level employees in Chicago as a matter of policy. If you find that statement provocative, keep in mind that 100 miles south-by-southeast of Madison, we specialize in things like union corruption, and place a premium on both big business and bureaucratic inertia, not to mention single party rule.

Better luck to Madison and elsewhere. If a renewed labor-left doesn't win the next elections in Wisconsin--and if there is not long-term economic growth there and in other threatened places--it will only be a rearguard struggle in the age of dimishing expectations and voter backlash.
  12:36am Danne D:

This was a great show to be at for sure.
Terre T + Reigning Sound = Win
  12:37am dave:

another great thing about the reigning sound show: the way the whole crowd seemed to sing along with like EVERY. SINGLE. SONG.
  12:39am coalhard:

one last thing---a shout out to msnbc for covering wisconson events with intelligence!!!!
  12:42am coalhard:

maybe chris hanson will tell the gov to have a seat over there--and zip his fly up
  12:45am Danne D:

you're one of kind, coalhard!

Btw, some of the comments board denizens may want to take note that there are now some comments boards up for adoption too. (Now I have to say I did not see this one on the list, but I wouldn't be surprised if a friendly note and paid pledge wouldn't make that possible) :)

  12:47am coalhard:

i go to work in 16 days here in west virginia--i owe wfmu--much
  12:51am Danne D:

Never knew where you were coalhard :) always thought you were one of the euro listeners for some reason (maybe the late hours you usually are around here)
  12:53am Danne D:

though your name certainly makes sense for someone from WV
  1:02am Danne D:

Therese and Johnna (sp?) have a good rapport :)
  1:12am Marmalade kitty:

Has there ever been a DJ fired from WFMU?
  1:12am coalhard:

i hate to not comment on music--but i am 56 yr old --own home but small pension--300.00 a month (short time in a unionized mine)before the union we had to work 7 days a week
  1:13am Roberts Rules:

Mm. Kitty, you cannot "fire" a volunteer.
  1:13am dan in Falls Church VA:

hi Danne D hi coalhard hi Therese
  1:14am Danne D:

Kitty - there have been suspensions. I don't know that a ban if there would be per se.

Pleasure to meet you coalhard - and nice to see there's a commenter older than me :)

Hey Dan in VA :)
  1:15am coalhard:

glad yur back!!! dan
  1:15am yair Yona:

Was sure that it is a lost Sly song

G'morning from Tel Aviv
  1:15am yair Yona:

  1:16am dan in Falls Church VA:

@coalhard i took a long bus ride on the OUT OF SERVICE - EXPRESS
  1:16am Adam:

Hi, everyone, great tunes. A volunteer's show could face cancellation or restaffing, though, right? Good luck, coalhard. My dad's family is based in a town in Pennsylvania where the mines closed.
  1:17am Therese:

Hi everyone! Sorry for my silence in here, it's taking me a bit to re-acclimate to Studio B. You seem to be having a good time without me though!
  1:19am Danne D:

well the schedule changes twice a year, Adam, and it's always very competitive for spots. So sometimes folks get bumped out a cycle, etc. I can only recall a couple times where there may have been a suspension and that was quite a long time ago at this point.

Hi Therese! :D Thanks for a great show!
  1:19am coalhard:

or a dj could have a damn baby--and all of suddun it is somehow more imporntant--kidding!!--love mike lupica too
  1:20am Marmalade kitty:

What happened there!! 10 comment avalanche mine went missing!
  1:20am Danne D:


This is the FAQ and answers the question regarding scheduling :)
  1:21am Danne D:

we saw your comment kitty :) things are just a little exciting in Tel Aviv today I guess :)
  1:22am Marmalade kitty:

have you heard of Kenny Everett
  1:24am coalhard:

there is a small quirk in commenting sometimes--repeats do happen
  1:25am Adam:

Danne, understood. I meant to suggest that, in the event of conflict, the more subtle method of non-renewal of a program could suffice without resort to suspension, which, like you said, is unusual.
  1:28am Danne D:

Haven't heard of him Kitty, but looked it up - "When England was a kingdom, we had a king. When we were an empire, we had an emperor. Now we're a country ... and we have Margaret Thatcher".
  1:29am Marmalade kitty:

you mean DJ Whacking mob style
  1:29am Danne D:

Kenny Everett was not renewed...
  1:30am Danne D:

However as to the show at hand, Therese is awesome <3
  1:32am Tristan B:

Good afternoon from Sydney, Australia!
  1:34am Danne D:

Hi Tristan :)
  1:36am Danne D:

Linky about the Yo La Tengo:
  1:37am Danne D:

FMU is super-nice to the volunteers :)
  1:40am Marmalade kitty:

Thats a great Kenny everett quote! He was hilarious!

Great show!

  1:40am yair Yona:

Jana is off mic, cant hear her
  1:41am Adam:

Nice Slits!
  1:52am coalhard:

i have no reason to say this right now--but i have bad feeling mubarack is coming back with iron fist--he is like darth vader--i'm sure he has trick up sleeve--but the music is good!!!
  1:56am Marmalade kitty:

was darth vader that bad?
  1:59am Danne D:

I figured a fair result would be to have Mubarak go run FIFA. I mean he can't be anymore corrupt than the guys running it now, right?
  2:00am Adam:

Mubarak might be spent, especially if US isn't eager to help restore a humiliated 83 year-old ex-dictator. In the rest of the region of uprisings, though...the conservative monarchs could still prove strong enough from Western sponsorship for counterrevolutions now. The more radical regimes have been getting along without the West for so long that their dictators may prove immune to protests and international attention for the time being.
  2:03am coalhard:

george bush chocked on a pretzel once--what caused that
  2:07am Danne D:

Joe Franklin is a good example with his 1 million 78 RPM records :) Think he's ever gone without a song he was trying to remember?
  2:10am Marmalade kitty:

Malcolm X was the best president US never had
  2:10am Adam:

Tunisia and Egypt regimes were Third Worldist opponents turned into US clients decades ago, but who kept that secular and populist pretense from the generation before: maybe even identified with post-Cold War US against jihadism, etc. Algeria is another, and I think will be similarly next-in-line to fall to mass protest and reform. The right-wing kingdoms are different, not to mention better funded, though Sunni monarch in Shiite Bahrain is going down for almost certain. Libya could be--already might be-- the most violent scene, like Romania in 1989. Poor Yemen might be ready to fragment like Yugoslavia did. No idea on the Bush pretzel, though.

I sure as hell appreciate you, Therese, the show, and the community here, eh?
  2:12am Marmalade kitty:

don't mention it..
  2:13am yair Yona:

Thompson's version is so cool, like the entire concert
  2:13am yair Yona:

Thompson's version is so cool, like the entire concert
  2:21am Danne D:

ECC does such great stuff :)
  2:21am Marmalade kitty:

Whats going on here?
  2:21am Marmalade kitty:

Whats going on here?
  2:24am Marmalade kitty:

I thought my radio set was recieving some kind of dual interferance from some really shit music station there
  2:27am Marmalade kitty:

John Mcenroe for president!
  2:34am Marmalade kitty:

John Mcain was a good looking guy (for such a ****) back in 1973!
  2:37am Mac is Back:

Pretty good after how many years of beatings at the hands of POW camp guards? Still got it...
  2:41am Malcolm X in the Middle Of Controversy:

In hindsight, endorsing one-party rule in post-colonial Africa seems like a bad, bad idea. Egypt, Algeria, Sudan--maybe I was a bit soft on them and the other anti-imperial strongmen. Sorry, Africa. Sorry, America.
  2:43am Marmalade kitty:

he looks more like a Mcain© Maris Piper these days
  2:45am dan in Falls Church VA:

who is the other person keeping company with Therese?
  2:46am Adam:

She has a large audience of children--and therefore, a large audience of easily frightened parents, by extension. Comes with that territory. Another side of the public never liked the jailbait diva pop music, or the industry that generated it, to begin with, so treating her like a sacrficial lamb was no...sacrifice. A consensus against the former Mouseketeer emerged thus....
  2:46am Danne D:

Ground ball went through 1B Bill Buckner's legs.

1986 World Series.
  2:47am Jack:

"River Deep Mountain High" not becoming a massive hit is supposed what "broke" Phil Spector.
You are correct on the '86 Mets. The ball went through Buckner's legs.
Britney has a new record out.
  2:47am Danne D:

ask Evan Funk Davies about that one, Therese ;)

(well maybe not). Red Sox lost.

Baseball Project is awesome btw - saw them at Maxwell's with EFD and Joe Belock in attendance.
  2:48am Danne D:

Here's the play:
  2:50am Therese:

I knew I was sort of right! Even if I was calling him David, not Bill, Buckner
  2:50am Danne D:

(well okay that wasn't quite the ACTUAL play)

anyhow here's a link about it:
  2:50am Marmalade kitty:

whats all this US=the World business? world series.. no one else in the world plays the game!
  2:51am Danne D:

Better write up: http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/espn25/story?page=moments/2
  2:52am Jack:

Good song. Buckner was really unfairly blamed for that loss.
  2:53am Danne D:

Bill Buckner song missing form accuplaylist :(
  2:53am Marmalade kitty:

sorry.. the world is an empire to speak of
  2:53am FMU Idiot:

Yea well probabably your best show ever.
  2:53am Jack:

Marmalade: We let a Canadian team participate! : )
  2:54am Danne D:

Thanks for a fabulous show Therese :)
Hope you and Johnna (sp?) have a safe trip home :)
Good night everyone!
  2:55am Adam:

Marm, what about Canada and their teams? Major League Baseball is certifiably international...
  2:57am Marmalade kitty:

It's ok.. Fun! Golf was a lot worse for a long time... still bad, but improved somewhat
  2:57am Adam:

Jack, good call. One past team, one presently in the maple leaf commonwealth...
  2:58am FMU Idiot:

Yea I could say so much more but SoCo numbs my brain
  2:59am Jack:

Good show, T. Sleep good, willya?
  2:59am Marmalade kitty:

Nazis control Golf
  3:00am Adam:

Satellite baseball leagues have flourished in parts of Latin America and the Caribbean, and in Japan: but MLB fancies itself above them for the time being...thank you, Comrade Therese....Free Algeria, Free Iran, Free Libya, and then some...to hell with golf.
  3:01am Marmalade kitty:

  1:16pm Emily:

Therese - it's so cool your show is political this week. Very cool!
