Listener comments!

  3:02am listener mark:

good morning Julie
this song is +8 points
  3:03am Adam in Portland:

Hey, Julie! Just finished re-watching Crumb for the first time in over 10 years.) Now, for something a bit less grim. ;-)
  3:03am Julie:

Thank you!
  3:04am Van:

Morning Julie, mark, my fellow Toyah fans :)
  3:05am Adam in Portland:

I LOVED that experiment, gone all wobbly, with Fabio and Clay. My face hurt from all the chuckling. Terribly fun show.
  3:06am DJ TM5 / Pete:)_:

  3:07am Julie:

Good morning folks! @Adam that was a blast! Tonight's show will be less grim. Toyah interview coming up, more TW music, and some of her faves.
  3:07am listener mark:

yes ! Julie, Fabio, and Clay ! What a great time!
  3:08am Julie:

"Great show dumbasses" -- Ken
  3:09am pierre:

Bonjour Julie !

:' )

Bonjour all listeners extraordinaires !
  3:09am Adam in Portland:

@Julie, ahhh, it's alright either way. I love grim as well, but I'm thinking about poor Charles Crumb. On an unrelated note: what do you think of the band Silverfish? Familiar?
  3:10am Adam in Portland:

Hello, all, and all to come! :-)
  3:15am Howard in Portland, OR:

Thank you for the TOYAH interview, Julie! Back in the '80s I was in the 'North American Toyah Fan Club,' run by some guy in Connecticut (I think). I wish I still had some of those newsletters!
  3:16am Julie:

I hope you can hear it. It sounds a bit quiet but I've got it all the way up.
  3:17am Van:

Coming through great Julie, and many thanks! Happy Birthday Toyah!
  3:20am Danne D:

Hey Julie :) Sacking out now, but will catch the archive. Have a great show :) Looks like you have great company for your overnight journey!
  3:21am Adam in Portland:

Julie, the comfortability you and Toyah seem to have established in talking with one another is making this interview such a bright pleasure.
  3:22am DJ TM5 / Pete:)_:

Hey little sister what have you done?
  3:22am Julie:

@Adam it's like talking to a friend!
  3:22am Adam in Portland:

Night, Danne D! Great to see you about these parts for a moment.
  3:23am Van:

A little royal wedding music...? ;)
  3:23am Julie:

  3:23am Adam in Portland:

Steve Stevens had fantastic 80's hair.
  3:25am Van:

If Toyah and Kate were to do a project together, *I* would fall through the floor!!
  3:27am pierre:

cool looking forward for the interview part.2
  3:27am Julie:

@Van Hell yeah!
  3:29am maja:

Yes! on board of this 9 h flight. hi all
  3:29am Julie:

Hello Maja, welcome!
  3:31am senor totenfest von brussels:

ouuuuh yeaah
  3:34am jaycjay:

Made it! What a night, wasn't sure I'd get here.
  3:35am Julie:

@Jay sit back and relax now
  3:37am jaycjay:

Thanks Julie, and I'll leisurely catch the first half hour once the archive is up.
  3:37am Adam in Portland:

I think a collaboration between Toyah and Baby Dee could prove well worthwhile.
  3:38am Van:

Kate! Love this song
  3:40am pierre:

@Julie, the thing i like here, is that i'm almost sure to hear Kate Bush, almost every week.
  3:42am Julie:

@Pierre I had to keep myself from asking Toyah to give me her contact info!
  3:42am Van:

I see what you're doing here Julie in this set: The Bowie, the early Kate, the current Roxie...all were most certainly early influential works on Toyah
  3:43am Julie:

  3:46am Van:

This is my first time listening live to your show Julie. Couldn't miss a Toyahspectacular :)
  3:51am pierre:

i know what your going through, i cannot keep myself from asking things to my favourite fmu djs. : )
  3:51am Julie:

@Van Me either!
  3:59am jaycjay:

FYI all: The 1979 version of The Tempest, featuring Toyah as Prospero's daughter, is available for streaming on Netflix.
  4:00am Julie:

Yes I need to watch that!
  4:01am Van:

shot! shot! shot! :)
  4:01am Julie:

Are we doing our "that's terrific" shots?
  4:01am Van:

yep! with beer though :)
  4:01am Julie:

Seriously! Jules needs something else to say.
  4:22am DJ TM5 / Pete:

Julie, I have been tuning in since 3 and am enjoying the show. I am working online and the music is in the background
  4:23am siggi:

listening in as always....best regards an icelander in sweden
  4:23am pierre:

that's strange, because "Dark night of the soul" is happening in the morning, with a breakfast mood for me (as well as everyone in europe, mostly) / This said, i ttally see how it would fit well during the middle of the night, but it suit my morning very well.
  4:23am Julie:

@Pete thank you! Very different show this week
  4:24am Julie:

I did the interview first thing in the morning, oh man,..so not a morning girl
  4:25am Julie:

@siggi welcome!
  4:26am Marmalade Kitty:

It's not possible to speak of PJ Harvey with any credibility when you have conceded to liking Elton John Lady Gaga
  4:27am Andrea on the M62:

Ah tori pj and now just need a bit of bjork! Then I'm back to being 16 again!
  4:27am Julie:

LOL MK...you might want to hide soon then
  4:27am pierre:

yeah, timeline differences : )
  4:28am helsingfred:

G'morning from Helsinki! World Hockey Championship hangover! This is ROCKING more more more more
  4:28am Julie:

Good morning HF!
  4:29am Julie:

I must look this up, do you suppose that is Fripp?
  4:29am DJ TM5 / Pete:

reminds me of Robin Trower
  4:30am Julie:

Trower? Isn't that one of Clay Pigeon's guys
  4:36am Julie:

Oh wow..Gaga scared everyone away. Toyah loved her, I figured I'd give her a chance with a non-hit..but still..meh
  4:37am jaycjay:

Heh... I think Clay does play Trower at times. But if you mean the Kiss of Reallity track, it's neither Fripp nor Trower... they were a German prog band.
  4:37am helsingfred:

I keep reading that Alison G is like the worst person to work with in the whole biz... but the sound!...
  4:37am jaycjay:

That's OK, you recovered from the Gaga quickly with a Goldfrapp.
  4:38am Julie:

@Jay thanks! I think Clay played Trower on Thurs but not sure.
  4:39am jaycjay:

Yeah I think he tossed in a trower during that... whatever that was on Thursday. Not sure if he does so regularly though.
  4:39am Van:

Gaga - meh to me too. Goldfrapp - new to me...sounds nice though. And not Fripp, looks like it was David Pittaway I guess
  4:40am Julie:

@Van that was some seriously awesome playing there
  4:40am stump:

not a GaGa fan at all ..but this song surprized me.
  4:41am Julie:

@stump yeah it was the most palatable thing on the CD
  4:43am helsingfred:

elton john omfg we're all gonna die...
  4:43am Julie:

@HF gots to get the EJ in before the rapture
  4:43am jaycjay:

Toyah's given me enough enjoyment over the years... I won't hold her "guilty pleasures" against her.
  4:46am Van:

Enjoyed the Tori Amos (and yes I'm a guy and no not gay)...been a fan for years. PJ Harvey as well.
  4:47am helsingfred:

oh yeah the world ends on Saturday! take us out, julie!
  4:49am Van:

Lady or the Tiger was a trick question. Toyah IS the tiger (from the Lion's mane to the Tiger's claw) ;)
  4:51am Julie:

I love it "Long hard slog!"
  4:52am pierre:

where about in France ?
(arhh its to late to askā€¦)
  4:54am Van:

Awesome!! Toyah in the US!? ABOUT TIME!!
  4:54am helsingfred:

world champs! death to sweden! :-D
  4:54am Julie:

Exciting, right!!
  4:54am pierre:

oh that is so nice to say !
  4:56am helsingfred:

Estonia is cool
  4:58am Van:

lol Julie, I feel now like maybe 1.5 degrees of separation from Toyah...thanks ;)
  5:00am Julie:

I found out that dave mandl interviewed she & fripp in 1991 back in East Orange! Live in studio...sigh
  5:01am Marmalade Kitty:

Just read this excerpt fom a rag uk tabloid, Toyah interview speaking of her school days; "One day Margaret Thatcher, then the education minister, came to give a speech, and I set five alarm clocks to go off under the stage at three-minute intervals while she spoke.
She hardly faltered, but when it happened the whole audience turned and looked at me. "

lol, sounds like something I would have found amusing when I was at school!
  5:04am Julie:

Oh man that's funny. little troublemaker
  5:04am jaycjay:

Nice... I was hoping you'd get to some King Crimson!
  5:04am Van:

Don't worry Julie...you'll get Toyah live around September :) @MK - that is hilarious :)
  5:04am DJ TM5 / Pete:

OMG!!!!! KUDOS for the Crimson
  5:08am Van:

Any requests tonight Julie? If so...Blue Meanings and/or Ieya? Or The Vow? Or Love is the Law? :)
  5:09am Julie:

Hmm Van I didn't bring everything with me, sorry. If I can fit something in I'll see what's on my best of
  5:12am Marmalade Kitty:

the excerpt was from www.dailymail online
  5:12am Van:

Outstanding set so far, just awesome
  5:13am Julie:

ah yes! I've got it!
  5:16am Robert:

Wow, a song by Toyah that I don't hate! That was unexpected.
  5:16am Van:

YAY!!!! Thanks!! :)
  5:16am Julie:

Wow Robert this must be torture for you.
  5:20am Robert:

I'll be honest, I'm looking forward to hearing something other than Toyah.
  5:20am Van:

@Robert - this week you're outvoted...sorry ;)
  5:21am stump:

sorry Julie but I kinda agree with Robert
  5:23am Van:

Angels & Demons - The Chosen Ones, forever :)
  5:24am Julie:

I played a bunch of stuff that wasn't her, but sorry, that's the focus tonight. More normal show next week.
  5:26am maja:

It is such great radio! A classic show!
  5:27am Julie:

I overdid it, but 30 years of music
  5:27am Van:

yes and her brick went up right by Robert's I think
  5:28am stump:

No matter I still LOVE your show
  5:29am Julie:

Thank you, Stump :)
  5:29am Van:

Greatest Show Ever IMHO, and many thanks...I don't think you overdid it at all. The point was to celebrate Toyah and her birthday after all :)
  5:30am Van:

Kate Bush themed show next week, right? ;)
  5:30am Julie:

uhhhhh nooooo
  5:32am Marmalade Kitty:

I love kim Wilde! Hahaha
  5:34am Marmalade Kitty:

Oh, no, no no no!
  5:34am Van:

Wow. Very nicely done interview Julie. Kudos!
  5:35am Robert:

A Kate Bush special would get y vote!
  5:36am Marmalade Kitty:

Mystery is dreadful track! Sorry :)
  5:36am Julie:

haha well her birthday is July, we'll see
  5:37am Julie:

@MK and yet her biggest hit
  5:37am Andrea on the M62:

Thoroughly enjoyed the Toyah interview and music. Good luck to Toyah with the new stuff I'll be looking out for it!
  5:38am Marmalade Kitty:

Yes, I've been thinking about listening to the wall..
  5:39am Julie:

@Andrea & @Van thank you!
  5:39am Julie:

@MK that sounds really funny
  5:43am Marmalade Kitty:

or was that talking to the wall? Hmm! I remember Toyah on top of the pops - uk music chart weekly show; live but mimed! I was very young, 7 or something! I was impressed by her hair more than anything
  5:44am Robert:

actually, i'd like a jilted john special more than anything!
  5:44am Julie:

jilted john?
  5:46am Van:

Gotta get to England soon for a Toyah concert...would love to meet the Angels & Demons as well...what tales they could tell!!
  5:46am Marmalade Kitty:

Bird in Flight" I think this is the Toyah track for me! an underrated one perhaps
  5:47am Julie:

Haha and that's the one she hates
  5:49am Robert:

try: http://youtu.be/_hGbXEWignA
  5:55am Van:

Standing ovation from this corner for an OUTSTANDING show! So much appreciated Toyahspectacular! Thank you Julie! Thank you Toyah!
  5:56am Julie:

@Van you're biased, but thanks! Thanks everyone..I promise..more variety next week!
  5:58am Marmalade Kitty:

Have a good week :)
  5:58am Julie:

You too MK!
  5:59am Van:

Darn straight I'm biased...as a fan of Toyah for decades, I'm loving this :)
  5:59am Lonious Monk:
