Listener comments!

  12:09am Marmalade Kitty:

groovy start! good morning Therese
  12:15am Marmalade Kitty:

R*A*M*O*N*E*S :D
  12:20am Therese:

Oh, my! Nothing but 7" singles for the next week!
  12:20am issac from Tijuana:

from what i have heard Bruce wrote Hungry Heart for the Ramones but his manager didn't let him hand it over .. personally would love to hear a Ramones version of it
  12:21am Marmalade Kitty:

Are you in mexico issac? :)
  12:24am issac from Tijuana:

@Marmalade Kitty ... yep here in Tijuana, Baja California... the Happiest place on earth according to Krusty the Clown
  12:25am issac from Tijuana:

@Marmalade Kitty ... where you at?
  12:25am Marmalade Kitty:

theres an amusing wiki article on "donkey shows" in Tijuana.
  12:27am Marmalade Kitty:

manchester uk.. city of rain
  12:30am issac from Tijuana:

there's a lot of crazy shit here in Tijuana, but the "Donkey show" still falls under the urban legend category, in the near two years that I have been around here never knew anybody to have actually seen one, and i have seen pretty wild stuff here :P
  12:31am a.:

so far this has been a great half-hour of music. then you had to go play a reagan speech and kill the mood.
  12:31am Roger:

Nirvana would say "donkey show" between songs at concerts in 1990-1991 for some reason
  12:32am issac from Tijuana:

one interesting fact is that the Cesar Salad was invented in a restaurant here in Tijuana ...
  12:32am Marmalade Kitty:

bomb or bond
  12:33am a.:

the chimichanga was invented in arizona, yet i keep seeing it on the menu of mexican restaurants.
  12:34am issac from Tijuana:

haaa been a while since I have had a good Chimichanga you guys are giving me the munchies :P
  12:37am Marmalade Kitty:

the Chimichanga must have been invented pre- 1912
  12:37am a.:

  12:38am issac from Tijuana:

I guess that was the time when Arizona was still part of mexico ... am I wrong ?
  12:41am a.:

I *think* Arizona was part of the territory lost to the US in the Mexican War. Or maybe it was taken from the Navajo during the Indian Wars, I'm not sure. But either of those happened in the 19th century so I dunno what the reference to 1912 is about. Pancho Villa, maybe?
  12:42am issac from Tijuana:

one of the few good things of going back to school and withdrawing from society again,drinking less and partying less ... its that i get to spend more time with my record collection and WFMU :P
  12:42am Jack:

Arizona Iced Tea is based in New York.
  12:43am a.:

aw man, I was enjoying Frank & Nancy at 33 and 1/3. =(
  12:44am Jack:

I think she slowed it down on purpose to buy some time to cue up the next record : )
  12:46am Therese:

That will not be the last time I start a record at the wrong speed!
  12:47am issac from Tijuana:

yes ...it was on the Indian Wars... Arizona was admitted to the US in Feb 14 1912 ....
  12:47am a.:

Martinis were also a drink invented in New York. Long Island iced teas were invented in Long Island, New York, as well - by a bartender whose last name was Butts. Tuxedos were also invented in New York, but they are not a drink so far as I know.
  12:48am Jack:

Just make sure Brimful of Asha is on 45.
  12:49am Marmalade Kitty:

mexico lost *ceded* arizona to the US onion in 1912 at the end of the Mexican - American war..
  12:50am Marmalade Kitty:

union *sorry* :)
  12:51am a.:

but the Mexican War ended in like 1850, so why would they cede the land 60+ years later?
  12:52am Marmalade Kitty:

US kept eating away!
  12:53am a.:

filthy yankees!
  12:54am issac from Tijuana:

Seasons in the sun has a very popular Norteño cover here in Mexico
  12:55am Jack:

Ooh my sister and I had this 7"! The sweet but troublingly titled "Put the Bone In" on the flip side.
  12:55am Therese:

The song is surprisingly adaptable.
  12:56am mikey p:

play the b-side therese, i wanna hear "put the bone in" - i hope it's dirty!
  12:58am a.:

Vivian Girls! Did they get a new drummer? Or did she just lose a lot of weight? (Wow, what a mean question.)
  12:59am david:

billie joe and seasons in the sun have to be two of the best songs ever, no?
  12:59am Marmalade Kitty:

native american wisdom: ownership of land is like fleas fighting over a wolf.. ;)
  1:01am issac from Tijuana:

ill get back to school work guys ... this is the most interesting conversation I had during this weekend ... If you guys want to come and visit let me know :) ill gladly show you guys around... ill be here till the wee hours with WFMU keeping me company. byeee
  1:05am Marmalade Kitty:

see ya issac!
  1:08am Marmalade Kitty:

flippin' singles is hard work, but FUN!
  1:10am Marmalade Kitty:

juebox/radiogram stacking
  1:16am david:

i love the sense of morality of these 60s (I'm assuming) sides (paperhead)
  1:17am Marmalade Kitty:

whats the going $ rate for jukebox play?
  1:23am Julie:

wow you played a 7" by Ronald Reagan
  1:24am Marmalade Kitty:

Howdy Julie!
  1:25am Therese:

I sure did, Julie!
  1:25am Julie:

Hey there Kitty!
  1:26am Julie:

My pile of crap will not compare to your pile of crap (45's)
  1:28am a.:

I've heard many stories about the Ciccone Youth single by Sonic Youth but have never heard it. Thank you for playing it, Therese!
  1:28am Julie:

I do have a bunch of Madonna singles..ah my misspent youth
  1:28am Therese:

Ha! A good portion of this is the station's. Though this Madonna single is all mine!
  1:29am Marmalade Kitty:

Ciccone Youth is sonic youth?
  1:29am Julie:

it's hard to go through those supertight drawers!
  1:30am Jack:

Was basically Sonic Youth with Mike Watt
  1:31am Therese:

Tell me about it! My hangnails now have hangnails.
  1:31am Jack:

Now, if you had played "Like a Prayer" off the Immaculate Collection, it wouldn't have had the cool guitar intro. And I'm not ashamed to know that. OK, I am.
  1:32am Therese:

Oh, and you're welcome, A! I love that Ciccone Youth record.
  1:32am Marmalade Kitty:

I remember the cool guitar intro
  1:32am Julie:

Yes! That's what happens! It's painful. Do I need to wear gloves?
  1:33am Therese:

And Jack, in depth knowledge of Madonna's oeuvre is nothing to be ashamed of!
  1:34am Jack:

Supertight drawers, Put the Bone In, 7-inches, do i need to wear gloves, knowledge of Madonna's "oeuvre"... this is the double-entendre-est messageboard ever!
  1:34am Therese:

No gloves needed, Julie. I would bring some hand lotion though. It's rough on the cuticles!
  1:35am Marmalade Kitty:

I can imagine pope John Paul secretly groovin to Madonna in his vatican quarters! How naughty!
  1:36am Julie:

@Jack it's the late hours!
  1:38am david:

WFMU is becoming more and more Satanic.
  1:40am Julie:

what do you mean "Becoming"
  1:41am david:

maybe it's just sneaking up on me :)
  1:41am Julie:

I can no longer think of Ed Asner without him being the giant cockroach on Family Guy
  1:41am Alysia:

what song are you playing in the background?
  1:44am Jack:

I think Watt is only on the Burnin' Up track.
  1:48am Roger:

The Houston Astros used to play at the Astrodome. They now play at Minute Maid Park (formerly known as Enron Field) So if it's a dome than yeah it's definitely the Astrodome
  1:50am Therese:

It looks like a dome-in-progress, Roger
  1:58am Marmalade Kitty:

nice one Therese! :)
  1:59am Roger:

it's the Astrodome http://monofonuspress.com/store/sun-araw
  2:01am Marmalade Kitty:

  2:05am Marmalade Kitty:

  2:06am Julie:

Who is this company that Shirley keeps?
  2:09am Therese:

I don't know, but they should be ASHAMED!
  2:12am Julie:

Their Hispanic Majesties is so cool
  2:20am Marmalade Kitty:

thanks for the woondeful music therese! looking forward to dark night julie!
  2:21am Julie:

Have a nice day MK!
  2:22am Julie:

All together now: Hi Therese!
  2:37am Joe B:

Hi Therese! sounding great. I remember getting Songs in the Key of Life from the library and it didnt have the 7-inch, so when I finally bought it and didn;t expect it I was stunned! it really was a bonus
  2:37am Julie:

oh wow a song with Malcolm McDowell in it
  2:40am Therese:

Hi Joe! I found that 7" at Housing Works for $1. It turned my day right around!
  2:40am Joe B:

don;t forget folks if you can spare a few bucks to send some love Theress;s way - check out the white pledge box at the top of the playlist page! Thanks in advance! and my apostrophe key is not working.
  2:41am Therese:

Malcolm McDowell AND Tom Courtenay! AND Albert Finney!
  2:41am Joe B:

the Bobbettes - guests on WFMU from Lincoln Center a couple years ago!
  2:47am Julie:

Did he mention Rita Tushingham?
  2:47am Julie:

How about Terence Stamp? Now I feel like watching The Knack and How to get it
