Listener comments!

  3:01am fred:

Good morning Julie
  3:02am Julie:

Hi there Fred!
  3:02am Marmalade kitty:

Julie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3:03am Julie:

kitty!!!!!!!
  3:04am Marmalade kitty:

That was grim! I'm sure I've seen that film, what was it?
  3:06am Julie:

Gremlins!
  3:07am Marmalade kitty:

Aha, I thought so!
  3:08am Andrew:

Hi Julie, fred & Marmalade Kitty ^_^
wow, I heard this & thought it was someone else, her voice sounds so much like...someone from the 80s, i forget who.
Also i thought that was Dum dum's Cristmas mewtal song, good start to the show! ^_^
Will the dwarf be on during the first break?
  3:09am Marmalade kitty:

Am i the only one who loves "Black Christmas" 1974 "horror " with Margot Kidder
  3:10am Julie:

great cast in that movie! Andrea Martin from SCTV
  3:11am Julie:

The dwarf is bound and gagged my own special way to celebrate.
  3:12am fred:

Good morning MK and Andrew
  3:12am Julie:

last year I did a whole Xmas set, this year I've just mixed it in, so don't get confused trying to figure out how a song is Christmasy :)
  3:12am Julie:

And hi Andrew!
  3:13am Laurie:

Hey Julie!!!!!!!! Stopping in to say hi!!! xoxo
Oh yay! I missed Carol of the Bells. That is my most hated Christmas Carol---unless it's done by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Otherwise, it makes me anxious. Curious to see what you have lined up for us tonight. :)
  3:15am Julie:

Laurie it was a metal version. And hi!
  3:15am Marmalade kitty:

Good morning everyone! :)
  3:16am Laurie:

Was it? Aw rats. I have to go listen to it in the archives then. You rock. Should've known that you wouldn't torture me.
  3:17am Julie:

Any "real" christmas carols are not traditional versions, though I do have one tucked away that I may finish with.
  3:19am Andrew:

Well, i was thinking this Godless track was a reference to the over commercialization of Christmas ^_^
Good song!
  3:22am Laurie:

Feeling especially dark tonight, Julie?
  3:23am fred:

@Andrew: over-commercialized? I didn't realize there anything non-commercial about Xmas.
  3:23am Julie:

I like to keep the Xmas shows dark
  3:27am Laurie:

This current song playing reminds me of the soundtrack from Legend by Tangerine Dream. I used to paint to that soundtrack all the time in college.
  3:27am Julie:

This is kind of mellow for them/her. And usually there are vocals
  3:30am Laurie:

Unfortunately, have to go, but I'm glad I got to stop in and visit for a bit. Hugs to you, Julie xo
  3:31am Julie:

Goodnight Laurie, have a nice Christmas!
  3:32am Marmalade kitty:

any sign of the cd I posted, Julie?
  3:34am Julie:

No, sorry MK :(
  3:34am siggi:

confused
  3:34am Marmalade kitty:

spot the christmas track!
  3:34am Julie:

hi there Siggi. What are you confused about?
  3:35am Howard in PDX:

So happy to hear KRISTEEN YOUNG! And so happy to have found your show, Julie. I'm used to hearing you between Fabio and Clay, but I only recently realized you have your own show and how fantastic it is. I never miss it now, I LOVE it. Thank you! xo
  3:35am Julie:

hi there Howard!
  3:35am siggi:

myself
  3:35am Julie:

wow Howard, thank you!
  3:38am Howard in PDX:

I now blame you for the stack of CDs I still haven't listened to. There is only so much time, and I wanna listen to your show.
  3:38am Julie:

ah that's an epidemic howard
  3:39am Marmalade kitty:

Julie, It's probably held up in the Christmas post. Hope you get it
  3:40am bruce:

hello julie
  3:47am Julie:

Hi there Bruce!
  3:48am bruce:

merry christmas
  3:48am Julie:

Thank you, Bruce, same to you!
  3:48am Dr Van Dee:

Morning everybody!
  3:50am Julie:

Good morning, Dr. Van Dee!
  3:50am siggi:

good morning dr van
  3:52am Andrew:

Haven't heard this Bee Gees track. Reminds me a bit of the start of Ruby Tuesday. I like it.
Hi Dr Van Dee & Howard & siggi & bruce ^_^
  3:54am Marmalade kitty:

just checked that Pink Floyd song, i'd never heard it.. Nick mason singing apparently? 1975 BBC radio broadcast..
  3:54am Julie:

Yep that was Nick.
  4:04am Marmalade kitty:

Unreleased Pink Floyd material:
pinkfloydhyperbase.dk/unreleased/index.html
  4:05am Julie:

You think Syd would have done a whole song about Figgy pudding or some such thing
  4:06am Marmalade kitty:

surely!
  4:07am Andrew:

wow, I love this unwoman track. Never heard of them before. & the Emilie simon track.
  4:11am Julie:

Y'all better be dancing
  4:15am Marmalade kitty:

Talking heads Duran Duran Depeche mode and Human League all in one????
  4:16am Julie:

@MK good band, isn't it?
  4:19am Andrew:

I thought that was David Byrne singing at the start of that song.
  4:20am Julie:

@Andrew I thought the same thing! Will have to look into him/them more
  4:24am Marmalade kitty:

just done a google image search for cave girl.. lol :)
  4:28am Dr Van Dee:

Cave girl as in the british TV show? I used to watch it constantly when I was at university...
  4:29am Andrew:

woohoo inkubus sukkubus ^_^ I love them, have listened to the live set so many times now.
cave girl? I just looked & there's some weird images...one looks like a cartoon costume.
  4:37am Julie:

That reminds me, I've done a little "greatest hits of live" on the FMA, I don't think it's featured, but search for Julieb on there you may find it
  4:38am Andrew:

hehe, doors christmas songs
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERS-P1xQLn8
  4:39am Marmalade kitty:

I never saw the TV show, was it good :) I'm loving the Bunnymen! Been listening to them alot lately
  4:40am Julie:

Is that the Mario Cantone bit?
  4:40am Julie:

Moody Blues did a whole Christmas album, but it's recent and not that great.
  4:42am Marmalade kitty:

Riders on a sleigh! lol!
  4:43am Dr Van Dee:

The TV show was appalling, it was notable only for the girls in skimpy cavewoman costumes. Amazing that the BBC ever commissioned it actually...
  4:43am Julie:

Do you really need more than that, Dr. Van Dee?
  4:45am Dr Van Dee:

No, that's all I need. I actually have a DVD of it somewhere...
  4:45am Marmalade kitty:

Thats hilarious, Andrew!!
  4:46am Julie:

I must see this
  4:46am Julie:

I assume it was on the coattails of the Raquel film
  4:47am jamesie:

Lou was OK then, in fact I admired him
  4:47am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Julie!
LOVE this one, have you ever played it before?
  4:48am Julie:

@Jamesie oh yes, great stuff. @Matt yes I have
  4:48am Julie:

and good morning to both of you, Matt & Jamesie (not wanting anyone to storm off this week)
  4:49am fred:

Wouldn't "the gift" be more in tune with the season? Not a criticism by any means there, Julie, the thought just crossed my mind.
  4:50am Julie:

@Fred didn't consider it, I just wanted to hear that one
  4:51am jamesie:

:) high there Julie xx
  4:51am Marmalade kitty:

genius simplistic VU
  4:52am fred:

@Julie: best reason there is
  4:55am fred:

OK, I'm outta here. For real. At the end of this track. Before the next one makes me even later.
Thanks Julie!
  4:56am Julie:

Goodnight Fred!
  4:56am Marmalade kitty:

see ya, fred!
  4:56am Matt from Springfield:

Oooh, NICE Mazzy Star!
See ya later fred!
  4:58am fred:

I'm off to work, not sleep. My boss should buy me an android so I can listen on my commute. That's the only way I'll check in earlier on Tuesdays.
  5:00am Julie:

Yeah I was just about to correct that. Thanks for taking the time to come by. Merry Christmas!
  5:03am Van in Dallas:

I think I'm still dreaming, but going back to sleep just to be sure. Wanted to say HI Julie and Dark Night listeners before I do though. Happy day to you all! :)
  5:04am Andrew:

aw, missed a heap because my computer crashed (plus i was writing a huge email that is gone now O_Q)
last I heard was Venus in furs.....
cya fred
  5:04am Julie:

Hi Van! Bye Van!
  5:05am Van in Dallas:

Archive, hear I come (in a few hours)! :)
  5:05am Julie:

Aw Andrew you missed the BEST STUFF EVER, right guys?
  5:07am Matt from Springfield:

Yeah! But, how convenient that the Archive computers are always more dependable than our personal ones!
  5:08am Matt from Springfield:

You should have played this right after "You're Lost Little Girl", the chords sound the same.
  5:08am Marmalade kitty:

Le Martien heavy breathing in right speaker!
  5:09am Julie:

Yeah I guess I missed that. I love the sound of that Francoise song
  5:10am Matt from Springfield:

I'm looking up All About Eve's history--if this is '89, this is probably right before Marty Willson-Piper joined the lineup.
  5:10am Marmalade kitty:

Matt, you type very swiftly :)
  5:11am Andrew:

are they Australian? he's from The Church
  5:11am Julie:

no, English
  5:12am Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha, touch typing, Kitty! :)
Type as you think, think-typing, that's the next innovation we need!
  5:12am Julie:

I type much faster than I write by hand
  5:13am Marmalade kitty:

Its a good skill!
  5:14am Matt from Springfield:

@MK: Also, Internet tabs for browsing--for serial browsers like me, it's one of the best innovations in recent years. Look up anything or go back and forth between sites--without even switching windows! Mah-vellous!
  5:17am Matt from Springfield:

Nice Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies!
  5:19am Andrew:

heh...except when you have 30 or so tabs open & chrome doesn't save them like it should (which is what just happened to me, grr) a long search of the history to get them back.
I also type faster that I write by hand & I cant touch type.
  5:20am Matt from Springfield:

@Andrew: Marty is in fact English (Liverpudlian!), he didn't move to Australia until he was an adult. I love AAE and The Church though, they're great!

Firefox! Cures (most) ills!
  5:24am Matt from Springfield:

Oh my dear Persephone
Oh my dear Persephone...
  5:24am Julie:

I gave up on FF, kept crashing on me
  5:25am Julie:

I played that one...ages ago
  5:26am Marmalade kitty:

It's mid morning UK. have to do some Christmaas shopping! Ideally, I would avoid the xmas rat race in town, but I'm never clever enough to shop early!?
  5:27am Julie:

@MK me either! I'm not done!
  5:31am Marmalade kitty:

socks ties chocolates perfume scarfs..!!!!!
  5:31am Andrew:

or when the computer resets itself right after you type the last comment... O_Q
i was using FF which worked fine for me & then i changed to chrome, which was ok at first.
sighhhhh
  5:32am T-Zero:

Morning... overslept
  5:32am Julie:

Good morning, T zero!
  5:33am Matt from Springfield:

I fortunately don't have much shopping left to do--I was focused enough to get everything from Best Buy (a big-box retailer) all in one go, so I don't need to go back there! <credit card dent!>
  5:33am Marmalade kitty:

..& scarves! Wakey wakey TZ :)
  5:34am Andrew:

Hi T-zero & Matt
I have about 1/4 of my christmas shopping done.
  5:35am Matt from Springfield:

@MK: Lovely gifts all! :)
I should've asked for a scarf, I don't have one! I'm usually warm enough, but they look so cool I want one just for the fashion (Tom Baker y'know!) :)
  5:36am T-Zero:

Fortunately, my family made the decision years ago to stop buying gifts, except for the children in the family.
  5:37am Marmalade kitty:

My mum knits 'em ;)
  5:38am Andrew:

That'd be a huge scarf ^_^
What exactly is coldwave? I've got some I downloaded, I l;ike it, dunno why it's called coldwave though.
oh yeh? I know a few people who've done that T-zero. It's a hassle buying presents i reckon.
  5:39am Matt from Springfield:

Coldwave to greet the upcoming Solstice!!

YES YOU CAN, Julie!! Do it!
  5:39am Julie:

nah I like this song too much!
  5:40am Matt from Springfield:

@TZ: I think most families evolve to that point--we still get each other a couple items to open as adults, but really it's hard to buy for people anyway once they reach a certain age.
@MK: That's cool!
  5:41am Andrew:

wow, I wondered who the cover was & then i saw the name & thought, uh....either that was a weird version they did or wrong speed ^_^
One thing though, I've bought records & they had no speed written anywhere, so I don't know if I'm actually listneing at the right speed. They are mostly instrumentals.
I love this song too ^_^
such a happy song
  5:43am Matt from Springfield:

Really I like this song too--but how funny that sounded!
@Julie: Tell your sisters how you played that one too fast on the radio!
  5:44am Julie:

oh wow you remember that story, don't you
  5:45am Matt from Springfield:

Oooh, Wassailing! Faith & the Muse does this GREAT! Like the Classical choir pieces WETA airs (or used to anyway) around Christmastime!

@Julie: You've previously mentioned your long history with Jeremiah the Bullfrog!
  5:49am T-Zero:

LOL At first I thought they were saying potatoes of love... I was like, whaaa?
  5:51am Matt from Springfield:

@TZ: Kartoffeln der Liebe! :)
  5:52am Julie:

mmm potatoes
  5:53am Matt from Springfield:

Wow...something else!! :D
  5:54am Matt from Springfield:

Bluesy! "T.T. Top"!
  5:54am Andrew:

yehhhh t-rex!!!
I love this one.
  5:55am Julie:

Okay coming up the best christmas song of all time :D Thanks for listening, and happy hanukah/solstice/festivus/christmas!
  5:56am Marmalade kitty:

Is it uncool to like "the police"? *I've been listening a lot... lately* :)
  5:56am Andrew:

awww, over already! O_Q
great show tonight Julie. Hope you have a great christmas too! ^_^
  5:57am Julie:

@MK I like them!
  5:57am Matt from Springfield:

Ah, Christmas Spectorpop--that's still a great album: Darlene Love, The Ronettes, and a creepy spoken outro from Mr. Spector!
  5:58am Marmalade kitty:

Have a Merry Christmas everybody!
  5:59am Matt from Springfield:

@MK: As do I! Indulge your tastes!
  5:59am Andrew:

merry christmas! ^_^
hope you all have a good christmas. see you next week! ^_^
  5:59am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Julie for a great Christmas show! Goodbye everyone!

Happy Christmas to all!
  6:01am T-Zero:

Merry Christmas.... Happy Hanukkah
  12:12pm Van in Dallas:

Alright! Time for the magic of WFMU archive to bring this wonderful new installation of Dark Night of the Soul to my ears!
  12:40pm Van in Dallas:

Astute observation by Laurie, I think about the Void Vision sounding like Legend of TG. Love that album! And they will be live? wonderful! :)
  1:09pm Van in Dallas:

KATE! :)
  2:10pm other david:

Tuning in via the archives and feeling thoroughly Gothmas-like!

Mazzy Star's - Bells Ring was bothering me, I've never heard the acoustic version before and it reminded me of something else... something I couldnt place.. then it hit me like a ton of bricks:

The guitar & strings are a total knock off of U2's - All I Want Is You!

Colour me shocked and horrified :P

Happy Christmas Julie & all you lovely commenters!
  3:49pm Van in Dallas:

Hey that Three Dog Night sounded pretty cool on Chipmunk speed :)
  4:07pm Van in Dallas:

Very nice show, many thank you's Julie!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and all that stuff to you and all listeners!
