I just want to repeat how glad I am that never got off the ground, so close to those bldgs.
  10:03am pierre:

bonjour Ken glad to hear you !!!
(not actually, but just a little comment saying that i'd love to hear your show)
  10:04am Dan B From Upstate:

Looks like I started listening right around the perfect time. Every tune has been a killer so far.
  10:07am lee:

this song puts me in the mood for the corn weenie hawaiian mix
  10:08am Ken:

Bonjour Pierre! Happy to know you're not listening but you joined us anyway. Non-listening Listeners is one of my proudest achievements.
  10:08am Cecile:

Ha! I think I did that one.
  10:08am Robert:

Aw, now you got Corn Weenie stuck in my head, drowning out this nice music.
  10:08am Ken From Hyde Park:

For Firefox 4 browser, they have personas to fancy up the display. They have sports teams, TV themes, bands and many other categories. They don't have a WFMU persona. If they did, I'd probably use it. Can anyone in cyberspace put one up there for download?
  10:10am lee:

Robert, sorry
  10:10am Robert:

The hazards of the message bd. Sometimes better just to listen. Ack! Now you've done it!
  10:10am lee:

bless you Ken
  10:10am Dan B From Upstate:

The future is made of shredded wheat.

  10:13am Billy Jam:

hello Ken, hello Sweden, Hello corn weenie
  10:13am Robert:

I met Jimmy Dean once. He was pointed out at a restaurant in So. Fla. by someone we were with, then came over & said hello.
  10:14am BSI:

honey, they're playing our song...
  10:14am Robert:

And, interestingly enough, IIRC it was at breakfast or bruch
  10:16am blip:

Is that pancakes and sausage thing real??
  10:17am Minnesota Jeff:

Who is that blond Fox News woman?
  10:17am theFox:

"Thomas G. Waites played in the Warriors, he has nothing to do with the great Tom Waits"
  10:18am pierre:

You can't imagine how frustrated i am right now, i saw you played Tonetta, Ivy, Wevie Stonder… Arrrgh i can't take it ! … need to…listen… to …Ken…

the archive will not feel the same.
  10:18am F0F0:


Yes, and all pancakes include a sausage whatever you order it or not.
  10:19am blip:

I am entertaining a fantasy right now of eating pancakes & saugages on a stick while watching Fox news...
  10:19am Listener Dave from NH:

The Warriors is (was?) on Netflix Instant, if you've got that.

I feel like I got on the stream too late too.
  10:23am Dan B From Upstate:

I'm watching the fox news gal and imagining that's her laughing. Strange things are going on inside my head right now.
  10:23am hamburger:

can this be the rest of the show until noon?
  10:23am HotRod:

You're fucking awesome.
  10:23am rst-wiley:

Remember this line ?
"Those are balls.."
  10:26am rst-wiley:

by the character Barry Zuckercorn

From the annals of "2003 ha ha ha"
  10:28am F0F0:

By popular demand, here's the original source video fpr the FOX NEWS animated gif:
  10:28am helsingfred:

hieno, soita pois !
  10:29am still b/p:

I had to leave on an errand, and miss some good musics, but it allowed me snag some tamaters. I am the Baseball Furies of the Farmer's Market.
  10:31am Brian in UK:

pierre who needs to listen when there is visual simulation; sorry stimulation.
Us Brits know what Lard is about and how to harness its properties.
  10:31am Handsome Harry:

The rubber suit is really working wonders today. I highly recommend it. Great show today. And this John Barry tune is really swingin'.
  10:31am blip:

Thanks FOFO. I'm now headed to the corner store in the hopes that they carry Jimmy Dean products...
  10:33am Carmichael:

Strapped in and ready. Good morning Kenneth and fellow woof-mooers.
  10:33am F0F0:


Once there ask for the Big Sausage Pizza.
  10:34am hamburger:

my google-fu is not good enough to find where these rotating face gifs come from...
  10:34am Dan B From Upstate:

Can never get enough John Barry.
  10:36am Michael:

The paintings' faces' similarities are less remarkable than the living persons': there is such a thing as a Western European æsthetic tradition, artists learn by copying each other, and patrons' tastes tend to be conservative and in that tradition.

Of course, make-up and lighting have their own traditions now....
  10:39am Mark:

can't remember what season of survivor that's from
  10:40am Steve:

You are amazing.just last night, completely randomly, I was surfing beatgirl links. How did you know?
  10:42am Carmichael:

Ken, thanks for finally teaching me how to sleep. I'm aghast at my doing it wrong all these years.
  10:43am Minnesota Jeff:

Carmichael - I bet you haven't been wearing a suit and tie when you've tried sleeping before ... its key!
  10:44am still b/p:

"Here Is What The Average Woman Looks Like In Every Country"
  10:48am pierre:

@Brian in UK: visual simulation is good, but the thing is that it goes so well with Ken's voice.
FRUSTRATION ! people, that's the thing : am i really happy with my new job if it means no live wfmu ? i wouldn't say yes
  10:49am Carmichael:

@Pierre: Wasn't that part of your negotiations?!?!?
  10:51am Mark:

actually it's Survivor 17 and the guy is Matty Whitmore,
"Matty’s grandfather is Oscar-nominated actor James Whitmore, his grandmother Audra Lindley played Helen Roper on Three’s Company, and his uncle is TV director James Whitmore, Jr"
  10:52am Cecile:

I used to be a huge Survivor fan, until the potential race war season. Haven't really missed it. But the fan community has some great people in it.
  10:53am F0F0:


And now that you mentioned it James Whitmore, Jr., James Allen Whitmore III, I born October 24, 1948, in New York City, U.S., is an actor and television director best known for acting on the television program Baa Baa Black Sheep. He is the son of well-known actor James Whitmore.
  10:54am Brian in Madison, WI:

I hope breckman showers before he comes in tonight and doesn't repeat his pledge drive scent.
  10:55am Mark:

and the blonde is Sugar Kiper who in order to milk her 15 minutes of fame will be on the upcoming season of Celebrity Rehab
  10:57am Dan B From Upstate:

Frakking Cylons!
  10:57am Robert:

The Loebner Prize? I'm somewhat friendly with Hugh Loebner, just got an e-mail from him today, in fact.
  10:58am Robert:

Want to get Hugh Loebner on your show some time?
  10:58am Carmichael:

I'm still holding out for the Chewing Nazi.
  10:59am Robert:

He pronounces it "lobe-ner". Long o, 2 syllables.
  11:01am Robert:

Only thing is, Hugh can be over-serious and might not take well to a comedy setting.
  11:03am pierre:

@ Carmichael : unfortunately not, i knew i should have mentionned it ! Damn, and i was wearing my marathon t shirt !!! They should have guessed !!!
I'm not completely desperate, i'll find a way !
  11:04am Ken:

Robert - You talked me into it, then you talked me out of it!
  11:06am other david:

The Night Air <3
  11:06am Carmichael:

Pierre, see if you can find a local wi-fi network, and tune in on laptop, iPhone app, etc ... There MUST be a way!
  11:07am Robert:

Heh. Such is the problem with guests who "have a sense of humor" but may not have thought of themselves in any way as objects of it. He does have some really cool ideas, and a lot of money to back SOME of them up.
  11:09am Robert:

I think Hugh might be very interested in your interest of combining video with radio. Maybe OFF the air some time?
  11:09am Brian in Madison, WI:

If you're really desperate For tonight's show have Andy call people and see if they're happy with their marathon premiums.
  11:09am Mark:

I love Michael Shannon's portrayal of Kim Fowley in The Runaways movie
  11:10am pierre:

@ carmichael : i do have internet, but the thing is that my office is occupied with two other people, and they don't know FMU yet, they don't seem to listen to a lot of music, so its either headphones, or i'll force them into FMU !!! its only my third day, let's see how it evolve…
  11:11am richard c:

Ken, Help! What's the name of the piece that you have played over the years of a preacher listing all the "evil" bands from the eighties? Includes Men at Work and MJ etc....
Google couldn't help me, maybe Kenoogle can!

Love to hear it too if you have it...
  11:11am Ken:

Im with you Mark, that was a great performance.
  11:12am Ken:

Richard, that is Elizabeth Clare Prophet's church. I think it's called The Great Preamble..
  11:13am Vicki (DO or DIY):

Elisabeth Clare Prophet - Great Divine Rectors , Richard C.
  11:13am Vicki (DO or DIY):

  11:13am richard c:

  11:14am Vicki (DO or DIY):

then Negativland sampled it too
  11:14am Ken:

Robert - You talked me back into it. Send me some info - ken at wfmu dot org
  11:15am F0F0:

  11:16am Mark:

  11:16am F0F0:

Negativland <3
  11:16am Ricardo Montalban:

  11:17am Vicki (DO or DIY):

  11:17am still b/p:

  11:18am dw:

  11:19am Ricardo Montalban:

there's also that faux series "sounds of american doomsday cults" of which, the Claire Prophet is supposedly #14
  11:20am hamburger:

thanks still b/p!
  11:21am Ricardo Montalban:

The only other release was a 7" of the Aum Shinri Kyo cult, which is rather dull in comparison
  11:22am Dan B From Upstate:

Is the seahorse riding lady wearing pearls to cover her, uh, lady bits? Where can one find pearls big enough to cover something that large?

Then again, why wear clothes at all? If I were that big, I'd be naked all the time. No one would be able to stop me.
  11:24am dc pat:

Wouldn't they send all their tanks after you until you put clothes on?
  11:24am rst-w:

If they were that big Dan B, you'd welcome any good boob support on such a fun ride.
  11:25am Vivian:

hey...hey...hey peeple..
  11:26am Vicki (DO or DIY):

such refreshing commentary
  11:27am F0F0:

It's all Fox News lady fault.
  11:31am dc pat:

say what ever happened to that "Damn, yer bootie don't stop girl" song?
  11:31am jen v.:

the last three songs have cheered me up immensely. THANKS KEN
  11:31am Lewis:

sorry for the non-sequitur, but another one bites the dust; NPR Affiliate Buys Broadcast License of Vanderbilt’s College Radio Station
  11:32am Mark:

Keith Richards had then threatened to stop playing unless the Angels halted their violence, telling Barger: "Either these cats cool it, man, or we don't play."
"I stood next to him and stuck my pistol in his side and told him to start playing his guitar or he was dead," says Barger now. "He played like a motherfucker."
  11:39am Ricardo Montalban:

When did Andrei Codrescu record that PSA?
  11:41am BDR:

Ken, what is the bed music used last DJ break?
  11:41am F0F0:

By the way, "Triculas for all of my friends"...What's triculas? o_O
  11:42am Marley Shmarley:

Hey—no Jeff Sarge/Reggae Schoolroom on new schedule?
  11:44am Ken:

BDR - That was Curd Duca's "Sin Swing."
  11:45am Marmalade Kitty:

Keith Richards is indestructible!!
  11:47am G:

@Marley: Jeff was off for two months with health issues recently...
  11:49am F0F0:


Franka Potente has the singing credits of that song (she's also the actress that played Lola in that film).
  11:53am Carmichael:

This beats Joe Meek's vocal version all to hell!
  11:54am Former Prize Vulture:

@G, not to mention that it is kinda lame... relic of the old days of block programming... not free-form; overproduced slick stuff, doesn't fit... that Lamin guy is better
  11:55am Vicki (DO or DIY):

not fitting is one of the best things about WFMU, no one fits
  11:55am Ricardo Montalban:

I love all the versions of Telstar
  11:56am G:

I was being nice, like mom told me to be, and sticking to something factual that couldn't be argued about. :-)
  11:57am Joe Meek:

If only I were still alive, and could kill myself out of jealousy!:-)
  11:58am Mark:

Ken, if you want to see ineffectual, also see Grace Slick's performance in Gimme Shelter
  11:58am Vicki (DO or DIY):

as for relics, fmu is full of them!
  11:59am Joe Meek:

"same mistakes again and again"-- I know where *that* leads.
  11:59am Former Prize Vulture:

@Vicki, DJs here are apples and oranges... and durians, jackfruit, grapes, heirloom tomaters... Reggae School Room is not a fruit at all, it is a chintzy plastic toy made in a factory churned out out of jamaican top-40ville not free-form
  12:00pm Ricardo Montalban:

fun show! Thanks so much!
  12:01pm Joe Meek:

Former Prize Vulture sounds kinda like Ike hatin on poor old Jeff on other programs' comments :-)
  12:01pm F0F0:

See you all!
  12:02pm Joe Meek:

Back to "the other side" for me.
  12:02pm Vicki (DO or DIY):

there are many shows to be liked, and many that one may not like of course. A lot of shows are specialist (not freeform in themselves), but make part of a varied freeform schedule :)
  12:04pm Ike:

What did *I* do?! Anyway, FPV didn't bring up that topic. His or her punctuation sucks though.
  12:04pm Ike:

Oh and great show Ken!
  1:27am Chris Mario from Norway:

Yo! Didn't get to hear this show, I just got transferred to this page via Google Images... But wtf, this website is *so* 90's and fuck'd up with all them crazy pictures \:D/
