  9:04am λɯəɹəɾ:

  9:05am ŦŐŦŐ:

Support Ken on WMFU
  9:05am paul:

And Ken has turned into Dr. Demento
  9:12am seang:

  9:14am dc pat:

..and really cool, I'll have to try that...but I don't have boobs...
  9:16am Bad Ronald:

Ha ha, speaking of boobs check out the moobs on Jay Reatard!
  9:17am pierre:

Bonjour Ken
Bonjour all
  9:18am Andrei:

Great! Another find broadcast! Way to go, Ken!
  9:18am Ken:

Morning everybody! I love singles week! Any requests?
  9:18am Brian in Madison, wi:

Great song! You're killing me, Ken.

Grab a shovel!
  9:19am Andrei:

How about Lennon's Plastic Ono Band? =)
  9:20am ŦŐŦŐ:

Hello everybody! We need some good ol' Hypno-Cecile help here for the requests.
  9:21am dc pat:

noticed that too Bad Ron...

How about Penetration by the Pyramids?
  9:21am MD:

Good morn beloved childrem of freeform...
  9:22am ŦŐŦŐ:

holy shi- Jimmy Hoffa disappeared the day I was born. o_O
  9:22am MD:

Yes...I said Childrem...
  9:23am Andrei:

Would I be hearing Plastic Ono Band this morning, or let me go to work instead?
  9:23am Detroit Mac:

I'm lurking today.
  9:24am dc pat:

ah, god, don't get me started on MEEchelle...why'd she resign?
  9:24am Dean B From Upstate:

Hi, everyone. How was your rescheduled rapture? I love singles week!
  9:25am Aaron in Minneapolis:

  9:25am tony:

Good idea - play a Toto 7" at 33.
  9:25am Bad Ronald:

I would venture to guess Cecile would request a track by Flight of the Conchords. Me, I'd like to hear "Great Fire" by XTC or anything off of English Settlement if possible...
  9:25am dc pat:

  9:26am pierre:

@ KEN :

i love when you play CRASH "vaughan's ballad" but what about playing the A side, with the song "pile ou face" ???
  9:26am Dean B From Upstate:

I adore PSAs.
  9:26am fishmonkeystew:

Grant Green! Singles Week is my favorite.
  9:26am Andrei:

How about italian disco music this morning? How about Pupo or Toto Cotogno? Ricci e Poveri, may be?
  9:26am Mark:

first Cibo Mato or The The, pleease
  9:27am Brian in Madison, wi:

Do you have any lawanda page or flexi disks from Cracked magazine?
  9:27am Cecile:

  9:27am dc pat:
  9:27am paul:

do you have Terry Jacks "Put The Bone In" this year?
  9:27am Andrei:

Hey Ken, do you have any discs that are married? With children, may be?
  9:28am Cecile:

Actually, there was a lovely single of "Albi, The Racist Dragon" that came out for record store day.
  9:28am Van in Dallas:

Hi Ken. Hi listeners. Working away with this in background.
  9:28am ŦŐŦŐ:

I love the idea of reciting wacky poetry on the top of a classical tune, well, at least in the case of the "Hey Mayor Daley Man" single. Still don't know which classical tune that is. Anyone knows?
  9:28am Cecile:

I will squee if you play City Slang.
  9:29am Michael:

Needs more theremin...and Wolfman...and cowgirl.
  9:29am dc pat:

Eight Miles High covered by Husker? That came out on 7" right? or was it EP?
  9:30am Cecile:

dcp, it was 7"
  9:31am Cecile:

  9:31am Snortley:

Back in the 70s, Destroy All Monsters put out a S/T zine, and the full run has just been republished in book form.
  9:31am ŦŐŦŐ:

dc pat,

Apparently an EP
  9:32am Cecile:

snort, thanks. I'm a sucker for that kind of stuff. Specialy since it was all gone by the 80s.
  9:34am Cecile:

toto, I haven't looked at the record recently, but that doesn't feel right. I bought it, i thought there were only 2 songs on it.
  9:34am Bad Ronald:

Wow I didn't know Brian Jones was a dick to his records too!
  9:34am still b/p:

Maybe you seen dis here already, Ken? ..."Celebrities and their vinyl"...!
  9:36am Cecile:

Nope, that and the MTM cover were compiled into an EP. 8 miles is a single.
  9:36am postmanpaul:

Hello from the You Knighted Kingdom where we play not with a good 7'' but rather with our 168mm's.
  9:38am paul:

this song would be so much better if METALLICA was playing it
  9:38am Steven Tyler:

You don't have a big 254 mm record?
  9:38am Brian C.:

VU 45s? Now you're just showing off.
  9:39am still b/p:

Yes, was just gonna say Lou shoulda brung Metallica over to this sort of thing...instead of the...other direction they chose.
  9:39am Cecile:

Metallica actually are a pretty great cover band.
  9:39am Andrei:

postmanpaul: hello from post-soviet Russia where we play NOT with our 7.62mm... while listening to this marvelous freeform program.
  9:39am fishmonkeystew:

The eyeball barfing rodent is both disturbing and fascinating.
  9:41am Listener Wes:
  9:41am Aaron in Minneapolis:

Detroit Rock? Why dont you just play MOTOWN while you're at it? ( I be trolling)
  9:41am Andrei:

German! Yeah! Way to go, Ken!!
  9:42am yayson:

not to be a downer, but i dont see how this most amazing of amazing stations isn't overwhelmed with donations constantly with no need to fund raise. cough it up suckers!
  9:42am ŦŐŦŐ:

Is there a way to search the WFMU singles archive? I'm from the cassette era, not very much familiarised with the (n)" format.
  9:42am Cecile:

This is the difference between Minneapolis and Detroit.
2 anti-racism bumper stickers - Mpls: "Love knows no color." Detroit: "FUCK RACISM."
  9:44am remix:

Love Knows No Racism
Fuck Color
  9:44am Cecile:

remix: Genius!
  9:45am Aaron in Minneapolis:

Its called restraint Cecile
  9:46am Hauswölf:

Finalich!! Zo gut!! Sank you, Kenn!
  9:47am Cecile:

You say restraint, I say passive-aggression.
I love both places.
  9:47am postmanpaul:

Yeah Yayson, City Slackers get out your wad and shoot it baby, shoot it.
  9:47am OnkelAL:

Hi Ken,
Got any London American singles with the triangular middles?
  9:49am postmanpaul:

OnkelAH, side 3 was always my favorite.
  9:49am Cecile:

You got anything from the Lovely Records singles box?
  9:50am Aaron in Minneapolis:

Cecile that is exactly what it is!
  9:50am Jay/ London:

hi ken just checking in from London
  9:51am Cecile:

Don't I know it? 20 years here, and I still feel like I moved here last week.
  9:55am postmanpaul:

Call me pedantic, but my apologies, OnkelAL, for the H.
  9:56am Cecile:

okay, I no longer feel bad about not getting this band.
  9:56am dale:

just tuned in on the radiola. i likee what i hear.
  9:56am Ken:

Hi Jay! DO they really have singles with triangular holes? Ive never even seen one!
  9:58am Aaron in Minneapolis:

Wait you are a Minneapolis resident?
  9:58am still b/p:

I forgot that the site I included earlier not only has stars with their rekkids but Lesbian Pulp Fiction covers, too. So it's either a playlist image bank or worth a browsy skate for no productive reason whatsonuthinever.
  9:58am Cecile:

  9:59am dc pat:

Great cover except the tune is not called Sukiyaki, that was the original performer's stage name.
  10:00am yayson:

whoa this is where slick and snoop got that beat from!
  10:00am dc pat:

"Ue o Muite Arukō" or "上を向いて歩こう"
  10:01am Jay/ London:

well ken not the records but the bit you put in the middle like the ex jukebox ones
  10:01am Aaron in Minneapolis:

I am not a loaner anymore!
  10:04am dc pat:

wrong, wrong, and wrong...
  10:04am Cecile:

nope. I've been here because the Michigan economy has been disaterous since 1974.
  10:05am Cecile:

Clarence Williams III
My friend yelled "Pete, Linc Julie" at the screen when he showed up in Purple Rain.
  10:07am Cecile:

don't f with Low Rider, Ken. It's one of the best songs ever recorded.
  10:08am snickerpedia: known under the alternative title "Sukiyaki" in English-speaking parts of the world
...The title Sukiyaki, a Japanese hot pot dish, has nothing to do with the lyrics or the meaning of the song; the word served the purpose only because it was short, catchy, recognizably Japanese, and more familiar to most English speakers. A Newsweek columnist noted that the re-titling was like issuing "Moon River" in Japan under the title "Beef Stew."
  10:14am BDR:

Teardrop! Great song!
  10:19am Mark:

(this is not Theme)
  10:20am dc pat:

still a great song..
  10:23am Dean B From Upstate:

I love that Svetlana Gruebbersolvik album cover. What can I say. I'm a thirteen year old boy.
  10:24am Chevy Chase:

You don't actually blow...
  10:25am postmanpaul:

Hi Ken, I'm about to pledge for Urwin 'caus he is as equally charming and urbane as your good sexy self. But having probs - what is a 'billing zip code', when it's at home?
  10:25am yayson:

looks like she's doing it right to me
  10:26am SG:

Here's the LEGENDARY Icelandic version of "Ca Plane Pour Moi", sung by "Johnny Carson of Iceland" :
  10:26am OnkelAL:

Got any scratchy ones, Ken?
  10:26am Detroit Mac:

Eddie is touring Europe right now... sure sounds like "Rock 'n Roll Love Letter" by the Records?
  10:28am Kenzo:

"Billing zip code" = The zip code of the address you gave your credit card company, which isn't always the same address you're giving us, above.
  10:30am Dean B From Upstate:

I was just about to ask where Clarence Carter was!
  10:31am Detroit Mac:

if i tell you i made a pledge... will still be "stealth"?
  10:32am GB Joe:

Musical porn for the blind!
  10:33am ŦŐŦŐ:

Strokin' video is quite surreal.
  10:34am Cecile:

GB, and Clarence Carter was blind himself...

Porn from the blind to the blind.
  10:34am Ken:

It will be Detroit Mac, but I no see your pledge!
  10:34am Frank:

These pictures are f*cking wild; especially the one next to 'Vogel'!
  10:34am dale:

strokin alone doesn't count i assume.
  10:36am Aaron in Minneapolis:

  10:37am Frank:

LOL Dale
  10:37am Burt Reynolds:

I am the Stroker Ace
  10:38am Aaron in Minneapolis:

I hope you burn Love Train after you play it!
  10:39am Cecile:

This is like double entendre madness.
  10:40am Aaron in Minneapolis:

OMG I think Im channeling Breckman! STOP EVIL SPIRIT!
  10:41am erika:

oh man, did i mis Jud Jud? i need to find them again...i only had their album on cassette :(
  10:41am ŦŐŦŐ:

A sexual kennuendo.
  10:41am Cecile:

think about butter sculptures and Ken Barlow's toupee.
  10:42am ŦŐŦŐ:

Or think about Brando and Schneider and some butter.
  10:43am Cecile:

you may do that to Funkytown. Please
  10:44am northguineahills:

I was wondering why the playlist wasn't matching what I was hearing and I realized I was listening to Doug's (Give the Drummer Some) stream.
  10:47am Carmichael:

Happy Hump Day Kenneth and freeform community members.
  10:47am ŦŐŦŐ:

I concur with Ken. Enough with the normal music!
  10:47am ListenerZ:

J'ai raté Plastique Bertrand !?Ça alors !
  10:50am Chick Corea:

Tom is over here and we're loving this!
  10:50am ŦŐŦŐ:

  10:50am Pete:

  10:51am Neg-guh-tor:

  10:53am fun cakes:

inflateable boy clams - exactly what I needed
  10:54am Clams Casino:

I'll wager that clams gamble like Kenny Rogers!
  10:54am ŦŐŦŐ:

best songs to make love to:
* Ravel's Bolero
* All you need is beat - Gerhard Heinz and and Aniko Benkö
  10:55am Carmichael:

Don't forget Kate Smith's God Bless America, or Trio's Da Da Da.
  10:55am Ohio Express:

Jeff Barry liked us better.
  10:56am Carmichael:

Is this the Ohio Express with Joe Walsh?
  10:57am Dale Fox:

No, he was with us. The James Gang, man.
  10:59am Carmichael:

Waaay before your time, Dale. Starving artist, slumming around, you know.
  10:59am WIKI Update:

(It has been rumored that a young Joe Walsh, later of the James Gang & The Eagles, was part of this band but left after the "Beg Borrow & Steal" LP was recorded. A photograph on the cover of the sole Cameo-Parkway album shows a photo that bears a striking resemblance to Walsh.)
  11:00am βrian:

Must be Fred Lane's brother.
  11:00am bobw:

how did i not know about this montreal canada blues song before?!?
  11:05am seang:

I keep hearing good things about Montreal--maybe I should move there
  11:05am ŦŐŦŐ:

Can anyone recognize which classical tune plays in the background on this song?
  11:06am βrian:

I hate the evil auto-refresh. Why, it's downright satanic.
  11:07am ŦŐŦŐ:

βrian, You can use the Opera browser and set reload the page to Never. Or customise it in your favour.
  11:08am Ken:

Hey Carmichael! Thanks for the pledge! I love you, buddy! Thanks to you also Cecile! (I love you more)
  11:09am Carmichael:

Any time, my main musical man. I'd feel hypocritical requesting songs if I didn't pull my weight around here.
  11:10am Cecile:

LOL! Ken, it's not a competition. (But, yay!)
  11:10am Mark:

trippy lyrics man
  11:11am Bob Vila:

Hand me the pliers!
  11:18am Jay/ London:

  11:18am Cecile:

  11:27am ŦŐŦŐ:

"Occupy Intelligence Agency"..Hmm...CIA?
  11:27am Um:

I just pledged I thnk, but the refresh I think deleted the entry?
  11:28am Van in Dallas:

Carmichael! Carmichael! Carmichael!
  11:28am Carmichael:

I'm hiding under the desk .....
  11:29am ŦŐŦŐ:


You need to, um, this page sents you to the Pledge page --which doesn't have automatic reloading.
  11:30am ŦŐŦŐ:


We now all know where you live. So start behaving yourself. ;)
  11:30am Van in Dallas:
