Listener comments!

  9:02am fred von helsing:

excellent start
  9:02am λɯəɹəɾ:

In hindsight, I'd have worked harder to get Ken onto the Super Commitee.

  9:08am Ken:

Just dropped the phone on the floor. No problemo! File didnt even stop.
  9:08am Vicki:

Ken - just heard Hans Reichel has died - you might want to play some daxophone...
  9:09am Ken:

What I recall them saying was "Android App? Those are for old ladies. And little girls." But I might be mis-remembering.
  9:09am Marmalade kitty:

are there credits for all tracks?
  9:10am Ken:

Yes, on the phone, there is a video that goes along with this - not only is every track credited but every LP/CD cover is actually animated!!
  9:12am ƃuıslǝɥ uoʌ pǝɹɟ:

  9:21am Les Paul:

  9:25am Dan B From Upstate:

  9:28am OM:

  9:28am eveostay:

Once I put a Bob and Doug MacKenzie song on a cassette tape and mailed it to my favorite (commercial) radio station. They wrote back and told me the quality wasn't good enough to play it on the air.

Fast forward to now. DJs playin' their phones through the sound board. Mind blowing!
  9:28am ƃuıslǝɥ uoʌ pǝɹɟ:

  9:35am Ken:

  9:35am Sam:

Someone had to say it!
  9:35am Mark:

  9:37am Ken:

  9:38am Sam:

This is pretty much what Nat Roe does, but they're more remixed and interesting
  9:38am hamburger:

this would make for a good air-guitar showdown marathon if one were so inclined...
  9:38am still b/p:

Welcome to the Jersey City Annual Thanksgiving Riffleball Tournament.
  9:38am glenn:

Number One with a Bullet, 'e does ya proud
  9:39am Brian in UK:

Speaking of Buddy Holley. How many times does John Wayne say 'That'll Be the Day' in The Searchers?
  9:39am pierre:

i've wrote down "enemies list" on my lists list.
  9:39am Marmalade kitty:

  9:39am Mark:

  9:40am BDR:

This is my favorite of your many stalling tapes, btw.....
  9:41am pierre:

Quick Question : Is There such thing as a 'Franz Liszt List', or simply a Franz List ?
  9:41am Sam:

It's not really negative vibes, I just find this boring. I know people often confuse honesty with negativity.
  9:41am λɯəɹəɾ:

i haven't heard any sonic youth yet.
  9:41am eveostay:

OMG that last one was my favorite song ever!
  9:41am λɯəɹəɾ:

  9:42am Marmalade kitty:

  9:43am end times app:

sucky music randomly pasted together = really sucky music, imho.
  9:43am Phuzzi One:

  9:43am Marmalade kitty:

sonic youth blur inxs
  9:43am Mark:

  9:44am Sam:

There will never be a second coming, because there was never a first cumming - Mary was a virgin.
  9:44am trrs:

Nice seams.
  9:44am glenn:

there's a chopin liszt.
  9:44am Ken:

Great idea Mark!! What should we hear from Lulu?!!!
  9:45am AbeSomething:

Yeah! Lulu, that'll teach 'em!!
  9:45am Mark:

Iced Honey
  9:45am Sam:

Crap, the comment board has now been blocked for me (at work) because of my own stupid vulgar comment. Serves me right. Sorry.
  9:45am Ken:

Yeah!!! Lulu!! Which track?! Cmon!
  9:45am Marmalade kitty:

the wonderstuff It's yer money i'm after baby!
  9:46am OM:

steely dan?
  9:46am BSI:

Enemies are easy. I wanted to start an ENTROPY list, but that idea completely fell apart.
  9:46am pierre:

@ glenn : thank you, i feel less alone.

@ Ken : btw, did you receive my mail about Lonely Kid Quentin
  9:46am Vicki:

I think I'd prefer it all at once
  9:46am Ken:

  9:47am jill:

mash-ups signal the end of the world
  9:47am glenn:

start a procrastination list, bsi. but it can wait 'til tomorrow.
  9:47am Sam:

I can still post comments but I can't read them. It's like giving a speech when your deaf.
  9:47am Dan B From Upstate:

If you're gonna play Lulu, play one of the tracks you consider bad. You know... so we can get some perspective,.
  9:47am λɯəɹəɾ:

  9:48am paul:

my favorite songs on lulu all happen to be the ones with cursing, i think
  9:48am AbeSomething:

Pumping Blood!! The one where Lou "waggles his ass like a prostitute dog!!"
  9:48am weiterso:

this is quick
  9:49am Jeffersonic/Jervix:

Geez, I think I'd estimate my recognition factor here at about 70% or so. I'm curious as to where you think yours falls, Ken. Are you anywhere around 90% or beyond?
  9:49am Ken:

Abe, you had me at Ass Prostitute!
  9:49am Marmalade kitty:

Can I put you on hold you mind holding..?
  9:49am 88 tears:

Chopin Liszt? You'd better change your "add etude," mister.
  9:50am Ken:

I'd say I'm also around the 70% mark Jeffersonic. I recognize most of the others but no way could I name them.
  9:50am dc pat:

yeah, I think 70% is about right for me.
  9:50am ƃuıslǝɥ uoʌ pǝɹɟ:

@jill no it's just more and more of the chronically postmodern media pastiche that substitutes for authenticity
  9:50am Vivian:

Folks, I need to upgrade my phone-which is better iphone 3g or iphone 4?
  9:51am paul:

so many of these songs sound way better in 2 second bursts than having to sit through the entire songs again
  9:52am Dave:

I'd like to see this performed live
  9:52am ƃuıslǝɥ uoʌ pǝɹɟ:

@dave seconded!
  9:53am ChrisB.:

  9:54am glenn:

where's the chris spedding guitar jamboree in all this?
  9:54am sɐllɐp uı uɐΛ:

Has there been an Eminence Front sighting in this yet?
  9:54am λɯəɹəɾ:

i HATE my iphone 3g. i STRONGLY urge you not to get a iphone 3g. takes 5 -10 seconds to get the camera warmed up to take a picture. 15 seconds to view my pictures. iphone 4 or droid, if you're a little girl or old lady.
  9:54am still b/p:

Is there a 60-minute Cowbell Convulsion or Moog Maul after the Axe Attack?
  9:54am OM:

would I show my youth if I said I'm at ~25-30% recognition? :/
  9:54am earwax:

Wait a minute. You mean this isn't just one guy playing this?
  9:55am pierre:

(say what you want but, this guy - with the helmet - is skilled)
  9:55am λɯəɹəɾ:

amazon wireless is selling phones for 1 penny this week for new contract plans
  9:55am dc pat:

  9:55am pierre:

  9:55am mark:

I think I've heard this before???
  9:56am Dave B:

Should be ready in about 10 minutes.

  9:56am ƃuıslǝɥ uoʌ pǝɹɟ:

is there gonna be right smack dab in the middle a ten-minute hairball from frampton comes alive ?
  9:56am some other guy:

I think that if KDAD played this 24-7, well, I would be happy that existed.
  9:58am Dave B:

I have to do the upload remotely from home cause the firewall goons at work block access to DropBox...
  9:58am david from ks:

,,,aahhh hey i like that one n that one n that ah im f**kin stuck
  9:59am glenn:

  10:02am Vicki:

  10:02am Marmalade kitty:

no beastie boys? :(
  10:03am Gene Autry:

But do you recall...
the most famous
axe lick of all..?
  10:03am dc pat:

I'll help with identification: I heard the Witch by the Sonics. There, I've done my part.
  10:03am Johnny B Goode:

I suppose Ken could have played the album version of "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" instead. On second thought, maybe not such a bad idea.

Is that 70% recognition or identification?

I think the guy in the helmet is Robert Fripp .. oh, no wait, he's obviously having more fun than Fripp ever has.

Ken, have you got anything without guitars or drums ... or riffs?

I think this back announcement is going to take a lot more than an hour.
  10:03am Jeffersonic/Jervix:

Wow! I couldn't leave the computer until you stopped it! What the...! Back announce! Yikes! AAAIIIgh! Kenny G has possessed Ken!
  10:04am dale:

heard me a frank black riff.
  10:04am sɐllɐp uı uɐΛ:

I'm gonna go roast a turkey for tomorrow and be back in time for the first full song
  10:04am Blurry:

INSANE!!! total flashback. WFMU is just wonderful. Keep it together man
  10:04am Vicki:

it might be helpful to consult with wikipedia for more information
  10:04am OM:

i love ken so much right now
  10:05am Jeffersonic/Jervix:

Free career counseling for the 90 percenters?
  10:05am Dan B From Upstate:

I want this prize more than I've wanted anything in the world.
  10:05am OM:

oh god ken take listener calls, this will be awesome
  10:06am Skirkie:

I assume by "Thunderdome" you mean "soccer stadium in Harrison"
  10:07am dale:

kenny g played something a couple years ago that was some retarded people being led in song at the holidays. i desperately need a copy - any one know what it was called?
  10:08am some other guy:

  10:09am chronically impatient:

  10:09am AbeSomething:

There it is!
  10:10am Stevel:

Dog prostitute for the WIN!!!!
  10:10am Vicki:

  10:10am dale:

  10:10am Dave B:

As promised.
  10:10am paul:

it's "dark prostitute"
  10:11am glenn:

why would dogs need prostitutes? they pretty much got the whole free love thing down to a science.
  10:11am dale:

i just remember someone yelling out 'PUNKIN PIE!!'
  10:11am stefan:

oh man, this Lou Reed Metallica stuff is ridiculous. Totally cracking me up. Thanks for playing, I hadn't heard it yet.
  10:11am OM:

ken hates all of us and it is fantastic.
  10:11am Vicki:

  10:11am λɯəɹəɾ:

I have my ticket for the thunderdome faceoff in hand.
  10:11am AbeSomething:

@paul that's a bummer to learn. Thanks, though.

  10:12am lee:

this is poor person's sonic youth
  10:13am Big Time Producer:

This is going to be a much bigger hit than that last song. The last song seemed a little too long.
  10:13am pierre:

  10:13am ricardo montalban:

That Loutallica album.
It's a lulu alright...

I don't believe the station is licensed to rock that hard two times in one morning.

There's another version of The Only Song, who knew? "Unearthed includes "The Only Song," which would later be issued in a more powerful (longer and more cynical) form on Hangman's Hill."

The drummer is Elisha Cook, and his frame of mind has been correctly read here. This, from an IMDb contributed bio, is about that scene :
"...he enacts a drum-solo piece that is of such crescendo, and played with such innuendo, as to suggest - glaringly - nothing except his own fantasized sexual journey from cymbal foreplay through bass-drum climax."
  11:27am Dan B From Upstate:
