Listener comments!

  12:10am Sue:

Hi, Joe! How are you? Long time no chat!
  12:12am Joe McG:

Hey, Sue! What's happenin'?
  12:13am Sue:

Not much, just chillin. Having computer trouble actually but finally was able to get your show. Yay!
  12:17am Joe McG:

Cool! Nice to see you again after so long!
  12:19am Sue:

Yes, likewise! And enjoying your rockin' tunes as usual. Really dug the last two tracks and this current one.
  12:20am Joe McG:

Thanks, Sue! Wow, I hope I don't start thinking it's 3 a.m...!
  12:23am Sue:

Tee hee, ah, yes, memories... waking up at the crack of dawn with my favorite dj, not literally of course :P Wow, the Dishrags track was off of a casette? Seriously? Great quality, at least from over here.
  12:26am cheri:

hiya joe,,,i like your show so far,,btw how do like this fine fall weather we're having??
  12:27am Joe McG:

Hey, cheri. I'm not sure where you are, but unfortunately our fall wather lately has been too warm and humid for my taste. Maybe it will crisp up in the next week or so.
  12:27am G:

Is this a version of this song from some point prior to when the Mag Fields album "i" became a no-synth collection?
  12:28am Joe McG:

@G: Yes, it's the original single version. I think I sort of like the "i" version better, actually.
  12:30am G:

I'm more used to the "i" version, but openminded. Thanks for spinning it. I've been pondering getting Obscurities...
  12:32am Longtime Comment Reader:

I thought Cheri lived with Texas Scott. It's supposed to be 103 in Austin tomorrow. That could be crispy, but not autumn crisp.
  12:37am Sue:

sweet, i'm gonna like this next segment
  12:37am Joe McG:

Uch, Austin is still burning? I thought that it had burned up by now.
  12:46am cheri:

joe remember last week i asked you if i should quit or continue dressing up for halloween?? well i desided being 30 THIS will be my final year of dressing up..
  12:47am Joe McG:

What will you be?
  12:48am Longtime Comment Reader:

what's the cutoff age for posting as a faux female? i'm seriously curious.
  12:50am Joe McG:

@LCR: The only cutoffs I know about are the ones Daniel Blumin's wearing.
  12:51am Sue:

Is Single File at around 1:30?
  12:52am cheri:

ohh one more thing ,,joe could you play "everybody hurts" by rem,,, joe i'm going have myself painted green and go as princess fiona from shrek,,,
  12:52am Joe McG:

@Sue: Yup! I usually get pretty close!
  12:54am cheri:

cause i want to go out with a bang,,
  12:55am Sue:

awesome... till then, feeling very funktified...!!
  12:57am Longtime Comment Reader:

so then who would win a hose-'em-down beauty competition? cheri as a green fiona, or dan'l b. in cutoffs?
  1:03am cheri:

well i got to go now joe,,, good night joe
  1:08am Longtime Comment Reader:

i guarantee you, cheri has gone down.
  1:13am ?:

Here are the Men Without Hats' hits:
So I guess they had at least 4 or 5 hits.
  1:15am Joe McG:

Hey, ?, thanks for the comprehensive list of Men Without Hats hits. Hats Hits.
  1:17am (mta) Tony:

you're welcome, Joe. Love this new Creole! Hope to hear more.
  1:20am Matt from Springfield:

Hello there Joe!

Hey mta Tony! I remember you typing in Styx song timings before. Did you look these up, or are you just great at remembering song times?
  1:20am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt! What's up?
  1:21am cheri:

joe i just came back for one minute to say please play " everybody hurts" by rem cause that's my fave rem tune,, thnx so much
  1:22am Longtime Comment Reader:

  1:23am Matt from Springfield:

I diggin' the dub, mon!
  1:27am (mta) Tony:

Hi Matt, thanks for checking in with me in particular and your question. Before I answer, I'd like to say how flattered I am that you remembered that about me. You are correct. I have my huge music library information entered into a database program's multi-column table. With tens of thousands of entries, I simply search for the criteria I'm looking for, then it's a simple copy and paste of the results of my query. It only takes a few seconds for me to compile special lists. Thanks again for remembering. You can give me a challenge and see how long it takes me to produce a list. Thanks for the space, Joe, and the tunes.
  1:27am Sue:

omg, sarah vaughan with clifford brown!! i have this!! woo hoo!
  1:28am Matt from Springfield:

Ahhhhh, Sarah Vaughan! I was wondering if that was Ms. Vaughan or Ms. Horne---either way, heavenly!
  1:31am Matt from Springfield:

@Tony: So you would have all those songs in your own music library? Or, you just have the info for a whole bunch of songs in your database? Though databasing what you have is a GREAT way to alert others about song info. I was able to give a great history of the "Theme from M*A*S*H" because I had tagged it on my audio file when I noticed Joe was playing it on the show!
  1:37am c:

joe i take it that you're not going play the other rem tune?
  1:38am Joe McG:

@c: Nope, sorry!
  1:42am Matt from Springfield:

"90 Day Freeze"? Is that a play on some kind of legal/financial term? Anyone hear of that before?
  1:44am (mta) Tony:

Yes Matt, just the info. The discs just sit on the shelf. Yes, you're right again, I can make simple lists pretty quickly. One of the best parts of my information library is that every song indicates its actual playing time, and is sortable by Artist, Album, Song, time, etc.
  1:45am G:

This is the group from Detroit that did the big single "Somebody's Been Sleepin'" about 1970, I guess...
  1:46am Matt from Springfield:

Jubal...is he that partying friend of mine, Jubal Lee?
  1:47am Matt from Springfield:

Well, as long as he loves to butter them buns!
  1:48am Matt from Springfield:

And thanks for Karen C, few lovelier voices have ever been recorded!
  1:49am Joe McG:

@G: Yep, same group! @Matt: Jubal is great.
  1:58am Matt from Springfield:

David Ackles was weird. Not weird in a bad way, but unique. Almost sounded like some fledging songwriters first unreleased demo.
  1:59am Matt from Springfield:

Y SeƱor Puente! Why can't I ever find a bar or lounge with this background music? :)
  2:00am Joe McG:

@Matt: He's an acquired taste, but his albums are really interesting once you get into them. Check out "American Gothic" first if you're interested in hearing more.
  2:01am Matt from Springfield:

Thank you Joe. My curiosity was piqued by that song.
  2:13am Matt from Springfield:

Is "Misogynistic Dating Advice" a band name? :D
  2:17am Joe McG:

Should be, Matt! From Belgium, maybe.
  2:23am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, Area Code 615 was Nashville's area code (still is, at least in the city). The band named themselves after that, even have a Wiki page!

  2:24am Joe McG:

Yeah, Matt, they were the cream of Nashville's session musicians doing their own LP.
  2:37am Jimmy Dickens:

May the bird of paradise fly up your nose, Ford!
  2:44am Sue:

Good night, Joe! Thanks for the rockin' tunes!!
  2:47am Joe McG:

You bet, Sue. Nice to "see" you again in these parts!
  2:58am Matt from Springfield:

Autumn Tears! I have this one! Great minimalist Vashti from her early demos.
  3:00am Matt from Springfield:

Good night Joe!
  6:34am Brian in UK:

Joe, sorry to miss you today & David Ackles. Love all his records. Ask Elton John or Elvis Costello what they think of him.
