Listener comments!

  9:02am annie:

morning ken, i'm tuning in to see if the show is gonna be any good.. have to download lots of music today...and i want to listen if i'm gonna miss anything.
  9:02am Sam:

Have you ever noticed how sheep always look like their owners?
  9:02am Herpy Derper:

I know, let's have another comments column ticket giveaway, or find another way to make Ken play "Idiot Wind".
  9:03am Parq:

I say we take a vote on whether Annie goes or stays.
  9:04am annie:

haha.... i love you too, parq
  9:05am glenn:

  9:05am Dan B From Upstate:

Morning all. Annie - the show is gonna suck 12% more than usual today.
  9:08am Skirkie:

Do your worst.
  9:08am annie:

maybe i'll try to do it while keeping the stream going. technology is scary.. yet tittilating... all the more reason to stay ken, thanks for tipping the scale
  9:11am CobraDan:

More Train Whistle please, and lots more delay and reverb.
  9:12am BW:

I'm gonna put it out there - Annie is fake - really been Ken all along!!!
  9:14am Cheri Pi:

I think I love ONTJ
  9:14am dc pat:

she should have called herself "Olivia Neutron Bomb"
  9:15am Curmudgeon:

Hey! Be nice over there.
  9:17am Happy Listener:

Ohaiyou Bakkayarou!

ProTip: there's no point in being nice or even sincere in comments columns or chans.
  9:17am -12% suckage:

Reporting for duty!
  9:19am -13 % shitty:

  9:22am pierre:

great pics from WIRE, that's what i wanted to tell you !
  9:23am Andy in Nova Scotia:

What is the source of the Grand Union picture? I suppose it could be anywhere in NJ but it looks just like the one in Glen Ridge on Bloomfield Ave., ca. 1972. Could it be???
  9:25am Sam:

No, it was 1973. You were close.
  9:31am Cheri Pi:

Vaughan's Ballad needs to be in the FMA, have your people call their people.
  9:32am pierre:

ahlalalalala… BIMBO TOWER, i've been looking for the Crash Album...
  9:32am annie:

hhmm. this may take some time, guess you're stuck with me.
  9:32am Ken:

Alas Andy, I do not know.
  9:33am Cheri Pi:

I want this Crash album too!
  9:36am pierre:

@ Cheri PI :
  9:38am Cheri Pi:

@Pierre: Merci beaucoup!!
  9:39am pierre:

You are Welcome Cheri Pi
  9:41am trlsh:

  9:41am listener mark:

We hear and obey, station manager Ken, lord and master of the flying monkeys.
Good morning!
  9:43am Aaron:

Morning Ken Morning All
  9:43am trlsh:

speak for yourself, mark.
  9:43am BSI:

where's my coffee goddammit?
  9:44am pierre:

would it be fun to paint a boomerang as a banana, and throw it at a flying monkey to finally catch one?
  9:45am annie:

ok, it's official, i am now a member of the famous FMA!
  9:45am glenn:

is rejecting christ, receiving poison a good or bad thing? it's unclear to me.
  9:46am listener mark:

Well then trish, we (the flying monkeys) won't speak for you.
  9:46am Luke:

Good morning Ken.
  9:47am pierre:

well done Annie !
its their Birthday, two year old it is !

Another great thing fmu related…
  9:47am BSI:

ah, the coffee. thanks.
  9:47am trlsh:

The less lord and master the better. Or anyone shoving the shit. Yes. Thank you.
  9:47am Andy in Nova Scotia:

It's All Good, Glenn
  9:49am pierre:

is there my Ingmar Bergman to ? worth asking…
  9:53am listener mark:

Ingmar Bergman will appear on the new 200 bill.
  9:54am annie:

is it kosher to divulge user-names for the FMA? i want to get in the mash..
  9:55am BSI:

Ingmar is groovy & all, but on which denomination will we see Peter Bergman of Firesign Theater fame?
  9:56am Ken:

Congrats Annie! Hi Luke!
  9:56am listener mark:

Peter Bergman will appear on the loonie.
  9:58am BSI:'s okay...... they're speaking chinese...
  9:58am Luke:

Ken, could you play one from The Jolt?
  10:00am Cheri Pi:

Annie I'm in there as my stripper name, not sure what it's all about yet in the FMA.
  10:00am Luke:

"The Tokyo Complaints Choir" this is making me feel crazy, in a good way.
  10:01am Nordstrom:

A ferpect Wednesday morning programme, Ken, as usual!
Thank you.

Say, can I ask where that Placard Lady At The Grand Union photo came from?
  10:02am annie:

well, then i'll just use my badger icon for the profile pic
  10:03am glenn:

i love nova scotia. just saying. especially the lunenberg academy.
  10:04am glenn:

also propeller beer. and lobster roll.
  10:06am Dan B From Upstate:

That Philadelphia Choir and my problems seem to overlap in a lot of places...
  10:08am Andy in Nova Scotia:

Greetings from Lunenburg County! I'll pour a Propeller Bitter for you tonight, and drink it in your honor, "eh?"
Japanese are much better at complaining.
  10:08am Skirkie:

Oddly enough I had turned off the radio to stream the Philadelphia Complaints Choir video on the computer.
  10:09am annie:

okay let me get this straight: i don't HAVE to download anything, i can just create a playlist right there? am i right? or am i right.
  10:10am glenn:

you know, ii've lived in canada all my life, and have never ever heard a canadian say eh unironically.
  10:11am glenn:

or aboot, for that matter.
  10:12am jen v.:

now i want to hear what the awfulness was!!
  10:12am annie:

OOHHHH, the humanities. not enough time for all this music.. has it gotten the knickname of Free Music Overdose?
  10:12am Robert:

I'm sure New York's wascursing all over the place. Maybe terrible in other ways too, but probably unplayable for that reason alone. Hey, it's New York, wanna make somethin' of it?
  10:14am Cecile:

morning, all!

Wow, Ute Lemper!
  10:14am glenn:

annie, why don't you try podcasts in itunes? KEXP (and others) have a song of the day podcast, it's free and easy.
  10:15am Cecile:

npr also has Song of the Day. I've written some of the accompanying texts...
  10:15am Cecile:

Insound and Amazon also let you know what their free mp3 stuff is.
  10:16am annie:

a podcast is fine as long as there's no talking of deejays
  10:17am annie:

going to be playing it in the restaurant
  10:18am Obvious Guy:

That pic sucks donkey dick.
  10:18am kenya:

please ask all complaints choirs to report to san francisco, post haste.
  10:19am Cecile:

these are no DJs, just individual mp3s
  10:19am marq:

annie, put the donkey pic up in the restaurant, please.
  10:20am dale:

wacky show senor ken. neil hannon sounds like jerry lewis singing on this tune. at the rish of sounding like an ass, donkey time is just wrong!
  10:20am annie:

right... it would kinda fit in, according to the oldsters who used to drink here.
  10:22am Andy in Nova Scotia:

Mmmmm.... Make a plate for me
  10:22am Parq:

Sorry if I'm disturbing you, but that whirring sound is my brain reeling after I saw that "Donkey Time" cover.
  10:22am Tom & Ray:

That freakin' dog is our goddam lead-in.
  10:22am Aaron:

Wow - BSTrio is awesome!!!
  10:25am Andy in Nova Scotia:

Apologies from Canada
  10:26am Carmichael:

Good morning Kenneth and others. This music is sweet and beautiful, because it sucks.
  10:27am Dan B From Upstate:

That extra 12% is really kicking in!
  10:29am BSI:

Eroc (of Grobschnitt fame) had some golden vocal moments like this...
  10:30am jan:

that puppy is so cute. One of the high dollar fund raising premiums you get from WNYC
  10:31am Sam:

This is an excellent show today!
Less boring than usual
  10:32am dale:

is humppaan 'layla' in disguise?
  10:32am Andy in Nova Scotia:

  10:32am WNYC Fundraising Strategists:

Our target demo is people who think they are sophisticated but actually are 100% whitebread boring. Hence the puppy. Our other option was a velvet painting of Barry.
  10:33am Neg-guh-tor:

Wow, Ken! This leg of the show is blowin' my widdle mind!
  10:35am annie:

crap! i should have turned it off when i had the chance.
  10:40am Cheri Pi:

Let's build a car!
  10:41am Carmichael:

Story of my life, Annie .... <sigh>
  10:41am Sam:

By the time you realize you've wasted your time, it's too late
  10:41am annie:

and i really have to pee, and the BR is down the hall..
  10:42am Neg-guh-tor:

Goddamn, please, let's build a car.
  10:43am Hints from Heloise:

@annie: Keep a big mason jar at hand while listening.
  10:45am annie:

i LOVE this free-ridin' beat
  10:46am Sam:

Keep a 40 with you so that when you've finished it you can pee into the empty bottle. Then try to remember if you've already drank it or not. Ha!!
  10:46am annie:

  10:48am dictater:

urinating is a natural act, everyone does it, its nothing to laugh at, Im doing it now.
  10:49am annie:

not to be confused with the bottle of liebfraumilch i have by the bed
  10:50am annie:

3 seconds!
  10:50am Dan B From Upstate:

  10:54am Dan B From Upstate:

Wow. This is kind of tame so far...
  10:54am Sam:

At this rate let's say 44 minutes
  10:54am demo:

3 mins 20 secs
  10:55am Dan B From Upstate:

Not the classiest thing, though. But mostly tame.
  10:55am mike noble 7sd:

poetry on the radio! my favorite!
  10:56am nn:

Cartoons! mine!!
'no, mine mine mine mine miiiiine.'
  10:56am listener mark:

Yay! The flying squirrel is back!
  10:57am dictater:

I had that, right after bubbles, that was my guess, the ticks are mine
  10:57am Robert:

Oh, I thought what you played as "Screwy Squirrel" was just covering one looooooong curse by Bukowski.
  10:57am demo:

the world is full of cheats. sorry.
  10:57am Aaron:

  10:58am annie:

that squirrel thing is just too mean and yet very very funny
  10:58am Ken:

Looks like Luke won. Luke, you want those tix?
  10:58am Cheri Pi:

I have places to be, let's build this damn car already.
  10:59am dictater:

lets get down to brass tax here, how much for the Donkey?
  10:59am Donkey Keeper:

That donkey is strictly interspecies hetero, perv.
  10:59am Robert:

It's OK, squirrels know how to land.
  11:00am listener mark:

Ken, Have you heard the 60 second countdown for the BBC? Techno beat and good for a sixty second stall!
  11:00am Inflatable Squirrel Carcass:

Easy for you to say, Robert.
  11:04am BSI:

  11:04am Robert:

None of this high tech stalling. When you want to stall, make it obvious like the looped interval signals of shortwave stations.
  11:05am dictater:

That Donkey will damn well be what I say it is after I scrape up the dough and authenticate its teeth.
  11:06am Aaron:

donkey needs a bike
  11:06am Robert:

Better than an interval signal, use the count-up clock from a Cuban jamming station of time since the revolution.
  11:06am Donkey:

I kick like a mule
It's a real mean scene
But we can love, yeah we can love...
  11:07am Luke:

Ken, I think Carmichael should have them. I'm about 1,400 miles from WFMU.
  11:08am annie:

my teeth automatically went into clench mode
  11:09am Sam:

Is there a polka version of this song?
  11:09am Robert:

Or you could use "numbers" broadcasts in several languages, but that'd take work, since they're not looped or auto-generated.
  11:10am Robert:

How did the bunny breaking rocks turn into that?
  11:12am Robert:

Yeah, we know, 2 Beatles have died, but that was Paul and which other?
  11:13am Mike East:

Has anyone watched that movie, "paul mcartney is really dead"?
  11:13am Ken:

Carmichael, want the Parts and Labor tickets?
  11:14am Mike East:

oops, I left out a C
  11:14am Robert:

He says Lenin died? When?
  11:14am Ike:

Oh crap, did I miss out on a chance at Parts & Labor tickets?! I just got into the office.
  11:15am Lenin:

I was assassinated by a Todd Rundgren fan, ya heard?
  11:16am glenn:

wasn't there a firesign thetre album about (groucho) marx and lennon?
  11:16am Ken:

Robert, Bugs was breaking rocks at the wrong BPM and it COULD NOT STAND.
  11:18am Carmichael:

Thank you Ken and Luke, but I'm in Northern California and can't drop by to pick them up and give you a hearty handshake.
  11:19am annie:

give em to ike!!!
  11:19am Robert:

I had no idea you tried to synch the animated GIFs up. I'm in awe.
  11:20am annie:

ok, i have a life i have to attend .... great tunes ken..
  11:20am Luke:

I like Ike
  11:23am pierre:

Nicolas revient !
Tu n'as pas rangé ta chambre, c'est le bordel ici !

(oouh i don't like him… dangerous and useless)
  11:24am Ken:

OK Ike, The people have spoken. Email me for the tix.
  11:25am Ike:

I'm looking back at earlier comments -- *what* takes 3, 49, 69, or 80 seconds? WHAT?!?!?
  11:25am Ike:

Will do, Ken. Thx people!
  11:25am Ken:

But Pierre, you have to admit that Nicolas has quite a package.
  11:26am Carmichael:

Don't ask questions, Ike. Tickets. TICKETS!!
  11:27am pierre:

in his pocket ? He use to smoke, so i'm guessing its a lighter Ken.
  11:28am zoot:

Firesign Theater album with Groucho and John on the cover was "How Can You Be Two Places at Once When You're Not Anywhere at All."
  11:29am Robert:

A lighter Ken? Then he might've taken off with that many balloons.
  11:30am Carmichael:

It's either a lighter, or he's very happy to see you. I'm guessing the latter.
  11:33am glenn:

right.i guess if i don't remember it, it wasn't very good. not like don't crush that dwarf.
  11:35am glenn:

the rotating dog head is kinda creepy.
  11:36am Skirkie:

  11:36am Ike:

That rotating dog head is hypnotizing me. Is it just me or is it spinning faster... and then slower... and then faster... FASTER -- FASTER! -- SLOWER!

  11:38am glenn:

by kinda i mean full on.
  11:39am Insanely Spinning Dog Head:

  11:39am pierre:

yeah Ken !
Way to go in french !

As for lil'president well big package or no big package, he is painfull.
  11:40am Fingers and Tongues:

Package, schmackage
  11:42am Luke:

thats a lot of matts
  11:43am Ike:

Sarkozy looks uncomfortable. I would be making that kind of grimace too if my package were squeezed into such a tiny space. Idiot. Sensible people leave some extra room in the basement for their packages.
  11:46am pierre:

When Ike speaks of politics, i understand.
  11:47am Robert:

Glenn, is the creepiness a result of the nose's looking like an eye?
  11:51am glenn:

it's kinda the whole package (i know, i know), it's got that linda blair feel about it. plus, i've got a bad inner ear or something, which makes me barf if i look at stuff like that. i can't go on rides either.(or catscan machines, but that's another story)
  11:58am Insanely Spinning Dog Head:

I'm coming for ya, glennie baby. Don't go to sleep!
