Get outta da way! Comin' thru!

That's a good idea for communicating the music we are listening now to non-listeners listeners!

Lemme try:

  9:50am Louis Lame:

Hey Ken I always figured Stine, Grisham and Tom Clancy were one dude, can you check that out?
  9:51am BDR:

Greek singer Nana Mouskouri recorded a French version entitled "Ruby, garde ton cœur ici" for her 1970 album Dans le soleil et dans le vent.

Also covered by The Killers and Right Said Fred.
  10:07am rst-wiley:

Q: Any interest in a button that'll toggle the images on and off. For pissy or prissy workplaces, crap internet connections and otherwise ?

I half-assed wrote half of one last week and wonder whether to finish it or not.
  10:07am Skirkie:

I would pay real US dollars for a "God Hates Ken" shirt.
  10:07am JoeChrisMorris:

is this Incorrect Music, Ken?
  10:07am Wikipedia:

  10:07am chris:

How do we send you images again?
  10:08am paul:

that's not the same guy who does the voice of Space Ghost is it?
  10:09am Vicki:

  10:09am Programmer:

We need more "Indiana Wants Me" covers in the mix.
  10:10am Wikipedia:

An answer song, "Billy, I've Got To Go To Town," was released in 1969 by Geraldine Stevens who had previously recorded successfully under the name Dodie Stevens. Sung to the same melody with an arrangement quite similar to the First Edition version, "Billy" peaked at #117 pop, #57 country.
  10:13am innit:

Brrr. Cold. Eh-snow. A lot.
  10:14am Cecile:

transported to a place beyond space and time
  10:16am Wikipedia:

@helsingfred: I can work with that.
  10:16am Cecile:

I made it to my 50th birthday and my 30th wedding anniversary within the last two weeks in one piece!
  10:17am F0F0:

That's a good definition of "good". Congrats!
  10:18am Cecile:

  10:18am listener monica:

  10:19am helsingfred:

@wikipedia: define "recursion"
  10:19am Mark:

I bet Dick Cavett will regale all with many choice bon mots
  10:19am Drummer Some:

Welcome to the half-century mark, Cecile. Just crossed that rubicon myself.
  10:19am Huma:

@cecile: Must be nice.
  10:20am chris:

All right I have a sweet photoshopped pic... just don't know how to get it to you...
  10:20am Cecile:

I know! About four days before me, in fact.

@huma, it ain't bad.
  10:21am helsingfred:

for the love of Pete, some intern go get the man a Monkees record
  10:21am Cecile:

That is the guy who is doing the new Space Ghost voice.
  10:21am Swami:

50 be 3.5 years away.
  10:22am Elisa:

Did you say Monkey butt? Is that legal to say on air in the US?
  10:23am Dan B From Upstate:

Your mother was a hampster, and your father smells of elderberries.
  10:23am !:

  10:24am Elisa:

Love the GOODBYE, TESTICLES cover.
  10:24am helsingfred:

"You are as sexy as a Monkee in rubber pants."
  10:26am Elisa:

Oh! "Monkee in rubber pants", very sexy!
  10:28am F0F0:

hey hey hey, so how many over 50s we have in here? Am I the only baby in here (i'm 35)?
  10:30am Anthony Weiner:

I thought 50 was the new 17.
  10:30am GbJoe:

no worries FOFO, i'm 29... let's steal these old geezers meds!
  10:31am Carmichael:

Good morning Kenneth and wonderful people in various places.
  10:31am marq:

late 30's but may be fifty years old by the time swag arrives. daughter got her 77D shirt and wife got some other thing. i think the mouse pledges take longer. everytime i open a bottle of beer i think about the wfmu bottle opener arriving.
  10:31am hamburger:

I thought 25 was the new 50 :( (i'm 28)
  10:33am helsingfred:

54 is the new 12, judging by yours truly
  10:33am OM:

If 25 is the new 50, I guess I'm going on 49.
  10:33am F0F0:

wait a minute, Carmichael, show us your ID before coming in here. This show is now only for grown ups.
  10:33am Internet_Rapist:

  10:34am Butthead:

Where's my statins, Beav, heheheheh
  10:34am Elisa:

Hey, I'm 83 going on 13.
  10:34am Cecile:

chuck d said something to me on Twitter when he was talking about being 50, and I said "don't you know 50 is the new 30?" He goes, "why would I want $30 when I earned $50?!" LOL.
  10:34am moose:

40 in a month and a half me
listening to fmu since teenagehood
fmu maintains adolescence maybe
  10:34am Elisa:

Ken, you are too young for me.
  10:35am Dan B From Upstate:

30... I knew I wasn't the youngest listener! Thanks, GbJoe!
  10:36am F0F0:

I bet Pierre is the youngest listener!
  10:36am aaron in chicago:

I bet I am
  10:37am 50something:

My next incarnation hasn't even been born yet.
  10:37am Carmichael:

I will be 54 when we get to Leo.
  10:42am rst-wiley:

I got separated from my cohort at an early age. The exact number has never been all that relevant.
  10:42am F0F0:

so now that we made sure everybody's over 21 someone bring the alcohol and those uncensored porn for the blind mp3s!
  10:42am helsingfred:

@moose - wfmu keeps your brain's musical parts infantilised so that you need never ask yourself the question of whether kesha is right for you
  10:43am Elisa:


YEAH!!!!! Now were talking!
  10:44am Mark:

I unfollowed Chuck D, dude tweets way too much
  10:46am Chuck D:

Ima fuck u up, punk
  10:46am Cecile:

He goes in spurts. Won't tweet for weeks and then he'll tweet up a storm. Enjoy him and Shocklee, even though they are both high-volume tweeters.
  10:48am F0F0:

helsingfred, perhaps that's what's causing my infantilised genitalia!
  10:48am Elisa:

Hey Ken, isn't the song you just play ECLECTIC PRAWN or am I mistaken?
  10:49am F0F0:

bumping my previous post so ladies won't notice it
  10:49am Mark:

I was out for a couple of hours the other night and when I got back there was 52 new tweets and about all but four of them were from Chuck D
  10:50am Cecile:

Yep, that'll happen.
  10:50am Ken:

Elisa, you're correct! Thanks.
  10:51am rst-wiley:

Unfollow and subscribe via RSS ?
  10:52am Chuck D:

RSS me and I'll cap your ass.
  10:52am Asexual predator:

  10:53am Mark:

  10:53am helsingfred:

@F0F0 maybe that's what the ladies want :-/ this whole trend to keep the bits shaved creeps me out, I have long arguments about this at the pub
  10:53am Elisa:

Thank you! Great song BTW, thanks for playing!
  10:53am Cecile:

You are not the real Chuck D. The real Chuck D fights with his gray matter.
  10:53am Cheri Pi:

This one goes to 11!
  10:54am rst-wiley:

The compnay fucked around with the feed addresses, so now, for wfmu the feed address is just
  10:54am Vicki:

is this Dave Emory?
  10:55am frank:

Big sausage pizza!
  10:55am Adler:

That settles it. Pizza lunch, on me, everybody.
  10:55am ricardo montalban:

P*rn for the Blind!
  10:55am Chuck D:

And my grey matter never wins! rimshot
  10:55am Dan B From Upstate:

P'Seni sounds like a Star Trek alien...
  10:55am lee:

Standing and suspended congress.
  10:56am Ken:

Dan B. I believe it is spelled Pizzani
  10:56am ricardo montalban:

There are some things I would never do for my fellow man, blind or not. Transcribing and describing porn is one of them.
  10:56am Vicki:

skipping down
  10:57am Dan B From Upstate:

Pizzani fits. Just like a sausage would...
  10:57am John:

Hey Ken, it's really hilarious when you say `Hello Sweden!' why don't you do that again, you mad funster you
  10:58am ricardo montalban:

It's all Martin Bormann's fault, I am sure.
  10:58am Dick Cavett:

What kind of crazy crap do they play here? Sheesh.
  11:00am helsingfred:

Dave Emory is on haitus and has been replaced today by a Monkee in leather pants
  11:00am Dan B From Upstate:

But... if the P'Sani were a Star Trek race, what do you think their heads would look like?
  11:01am ricardo montalban:

I once found a PFTB contribution that was two British-sounding girls singing the action on the clip they were describing. It was hee-larious.
I set it to Klaus Wunderlich on the fly and it fit perfectly
  11:02am Vicki:

I would love to hear Dave Emory recite Porn for the Blind
  11:02am Jeezy:

Drat. Just got back from running and the webstream is way off time with the live broadcast. I must either leave my iPhone on my head the rest of the show in my apartment or bite the bullet and accept the loss of this "grey" area as I rejoin the live show. Help!
  11:04am bbell:

@Jeezy: Just listen now on the radio, then download it to your iPhone and listen again later. The second time around reveals many layers of the sublime.
  11:05am moose:

and dave emory could spell everything out in that fast fashion
  11:05am helsingfred:

Sweden?! Ruotsi on vitun surkea kiitos mutta jääkiekon maajuokkueensa putosi hurrah!
  11:05am Robert:

Wow. 1st stunt player has to land in the net behind the tree, 2nd stunt player has to time a jump out of the tree with the 1st one's landing. There was a similar stunt on "Lost".
  11:05am Vicki:

skipping down
  11:06am ricardo montalban:

Skipping down. WAY down...
  11:07am ricardo montalban:

But his PFTB submission would contain numerous fade ins into previous clips and would eventually lead back to Martin Bormann
  11:08am Jeezy:

@bbell But can I really commit to that project when my precious 30's are ebbing away before my eyes!? Also, this is a great show but the ultimate Ken Summer show MUST have "You didn't have to be so Nice" followed by Love's Que Vida! and I think this show did not have such?
  11:08am helsingfred:

Martin Bormann PFTB = Stormtroopers in Stilettos
  11:15am rst-wiley:

Checking out of comments for today. Great tunes and pics to go with, Ken.
  11:15am Dominick:

Putney says the Bormann 6 girl is gotta have soul
  11:19am yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

Something went completely wrong with that quiz show
  11:22am helsingfred:

I'm seriously missing those french lessons
  11:22am ricardo montalban:

There's something really awesome about the juxtaposition of the Palin gif and that Satan devouring some damned soull gif.
Thanks, Ken.
  11:23am BSI:

can't tell the difference.
  11:26am Danne D:

Hi kids!

I feel 13 with this arcadesque music going on.

Vicki has me imagining Dave Emory spelling porn-star names during his reading

@mark - I wouldn't have the heart to unfollow Chuck D as he is my most prominent twitter follower

Him and Mort Sahl actually...
  11:28am Mark:

@Danne D,well if he's following you, you can't unfollow him
  11:32am Cecile:

Chuck D had this thing that was really cool, where he was going to follow 50 new people a day for one day. It was called, natch, @followfornow.
  11:32am Danne D:

This song sounds like Ken's twitter feed...
  11:33am ricardo montalban:

read by Dave Emory, backed by Neu!
  11:34am Some Vinyl Nut:

Hey Ken I thought this site might offer some fodder for your playlist visuals if you haven't seen it before:
  11:35am ricardo montalban:

I got an angry caller for playing PFTB on the air once. They threatened to turn me into the FCC, even though it was after midnight and no actual obscene language was used.
  11:36am lee:

I want to volunteer as a reader for PFTB.
  11:37am GbJoe:

You can volunteer at pornfortheblind.COM
  11:37am Angry Caller:

Sex is so goddam DISTURBING.
  11:37am tim:

hihhigigihihihihihihihihiih, ohh my good this is soooo inappropriate!
and now german too! jawohl! ich liebe es
  11:37am F0FO:

And I would love to volunteer for one of those funny sketches the readers read for PFTB.
  11:37am ricardo montalban:

People should do it while impersonating famous voices. Like I would love to hear Werner Herzog do one.
  11:39am ricardo montalban:

Or do one as John Peel, calling it in from hell.
  11:39am βrian:

Ken Nordine does PFTB. Now there's a concept.
  11:39am Angry Caller:

Do it till you need glasses.
  11:40am ricardo montalban:

Blixa would be great, too
  11:40am Angry Caller:

Did these blind people you're reading for go blind from masturbating? Just wondering.
  11:42am βrian:

Hey, my WooF-MU T-shirt has worn out, but the swag store offers no XXL. I'm sad.
  11:45am Carmichael:

I'd like to hear Whitey Herzog do one.
  11:47am Ike:

Ah! No wonder you sound all stretched-out!
  11:49am F0FO:

Those facts about napping are amazzzzzz....zzzz...zzz.
  11:49am GbJoe:

when i was a kid i lived by a fire station. i heard fire trucks all the time.
  11:50am Mark:

funnier than usual?
  11:50am ricardo montalban:

it sounds a little glitchey, but then, I am listening on the web
  11:51am βrian:

I think that should be "Dans la Gueule des Jours."
  11:54am F0FO:

Oh, nooes! This sounds like Ken's last episode where you hear all soundbites all together for the very first time. :'~(
  11:57am Aaron in JCity:

Ken? Hello? Sweden?
  11:57am Skirkie:

♥ creepy texting robot.
  11:57am Dan B From Upstate:

I heard Harold Camping isn't doing to well. If he dies, who will give us absolute 100% solid dates that the world will NOT end?
  11:57am Hillary Pic:

"LOSERRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! your hubby's even skeezier than mine, and that really took SOME DOING!!!!!!!!!"
  11:58am helsingfred:

Did someone put something in the water?
  11:58am Rev. Camping:

News flash. My brain is messed up.
  11:59am Aaron in JCity:

MAybe its time for Big Sausage Pizza via porn for the blind
  12:00pm helsingfred:

4 times, that's resumé fodder
  3:55pm Lizardner Dave:

Comma zero, ampersand.
