Listener comments!

  12:09am miss cheri:

happy 2012 therese how's the new year treating you??
  12:10am Danne D:

Therese thanks for playing what's probably my favorite Cheap Trick song :)
  12:11am miss cheri:

hny danne
  12:12am Chop Scott:

Cheap Trick starter into Syd--wonderful...
  12:12am Danne D:

hey cheri
  12:14am Therese:

Hello Cheri, Danne & Scott! Thanks for stopping by!
  12:17am James in ATL:

I saw Cheap Trick a couple of weeks ago and they are still terrific. Great track. Happy New Year Therese!
  12:22am Danne D:

This has a nice XTC vibe to it.
  12:25am miss cheri:

therese do you have any van morrison tunes tonight??
  12:28am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Sweet GBV cover!
  12:29am Therese:

Happy New Year, James! How many times did Rick Nielsen change guitars?
  12:33am James in ATL:

He changed guitars for every song. Everyone in my group caught at least one guitar pick. The highlight was they played Abbey Road side 2 Medley and it was awesome.
  12:33am miss cheri:

therese i guess you don't have any van morrison,,,if not no prob.
  12:34am word to the wise:

if you can't talk right, play music
  12:36am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Geezerpalooza??? (ha!)
  12:36am Danne D:

Saw Cheap Trick in college at Mabel's in Champaign, IL back in '91 or '92. Mabel's is long gone: http://www.thirdav.com/hd_discog/clubs/V_mabels.html
  12:41am Danne D:

There is something oddly charming about a website (songkick) listing shows at a venue that closed about 12 years ago. It correctly states that there are 0 concerts upcoming: http://www.songkick.com/venues/64541-mabels
  12:43am Danne D:

Looking at the concert list, I now retroactively regret not seeing Adrian Belew there back in October of '89 when I was in school.
  12:44am Chop Scott:

Cheap Trick is such a particular fave--saw them as teen in the Midwest (gulp!) in the very late 70's/early 80's many many times. Great band.
  12:48am miss cheri:

therese & danne my fave cheap trick tunes are dream police & in the street (the theme to that 70s show)
  12:59am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

I love the California Man / High Roller / Auf Wiedersehen trifecta on Heaven Tonight. I wish CT would rerecord that album with Steve Albini like they did with In Color.
  1:05am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

  1:07am miss cheri:

well good night therese and everyone!!
  1:09am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Good night miss cheri.
  1:35am Bill:

Thanks for Del Shannon version of go to Pieces. i saw Peter Asher's show this this summer and did not realize until then it was a del Song.
  1:37am Tarantino:

you are playing some nice stuff tonite, but overall i definitely like your Dec 19th show best.
  1:38am Bill:

Hmm. Capitalized "song" but not Del.
One other thing about Del. Friend worked Bottom Line for 20 years, asked what was best show in that time, he says Del, without question.
  1:39am Therese:

Thanks, Tarantino! Wait... whuuuuttt?
  1:39am Kirsten (Clay's wife):

Good evening Therese. Great sounds. By the way, your platypus (also known as the duckmole) trivia at the party last night was confirmed in Wikipedia. But I believed you all along.
  1:53am Therese:

Thank you, Kirsten! I did realize upon looking that "platypi" is not an accepted pluralization of "platypus." "Platypus," "platypuses," or "platypodes" would have been better.
  1:53am Danne D:

The Dec 19th show will now be referred to as the "Classic Therese" era ;o)

Seriously though, your show is fabulous as always. You bring it week in and week out :)

Alas I will have to hit the last hour on archive as 'tis getting late. Good night everyone!
  1:56am Kirsten:

Indeed, I saw that platypi is deemed "pseudo Latin." Which I use often and approve of! But the Greco inspired "pladypodes" comes in a close second.
  1:59am Danne D:

Okay, coming back for a sec to say that either every song sounds like XTC to me these days or that this song is at least the 2nd one tonight that reminds me of them. Probably even moreso that the first that did. (It's also excellent) :)
  2:02am Julie:

you played syd
  2:06am Danne D:

TMBG's song "Mammal" goes through some of this too :)
  2:06am Julie:

post party crash?
  2:06am Danne D:

Anyway I really have to go :) Have good night everyone. Hi/Bye Julie :D and take care Therese!
  2:07am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

I don't know if you checked Discogs for info on that Ducktails single, but the info on there is usually reliable. http://www.discogs.com/Ducktails-Mirror-Image/release/2393219
  2:07am Therese:

'Night, Danne!
  2:07am Therese:

Total post-party crash, Julie.
  2:09am Julie:

I really like Soft Moon! very early 4AD
  2:10am felix:

platipus in spanish= ornitorrinco
weve made a song about one of them
"ornitorrinco pastel"
greetings from Peru.
  2:12am Julie:

how about just Plati?
  2:13am felix:

i miss puss..
  2:13am Tarantino:

there was clearly a reason no one was using that pitcher.
  2:15am Therese:

The devil take that pitcher!
  2:19am Kirsten:

  2:20am Julie:

the pitcher was great! Is there something I don't know?
  2:22am Tarantino:

no but there's something we don't know: WHEN TO QUIT!
  2:23am ?:

Quit drinking? Surely you jest
  2:25am Julie:

oops that was me!
  2:25am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

I was expecting The Knife or planningtorock after the Andy Stott track. :D
  2:27am Julie:

Is this like Dark Cabaret?
  2:30am Tarantino:

great "Fire in Cairo" remix by Digitalism:
  2:31am Therese:

Right? Maybe I should go grab a Tiger Lilies record...
  2:34am Julie:

Looks like David E Williams worked on some Rozz Williams records, but I can't find out if they're related or not. I guess not since Rozz changed his name
  2:35am Julie:

"liberace with a brain tumor" nice
  2:36am T-Zero:

@Julie: mentioning dark cabaret, you ever listened to Milva do Brecht?
  2:37am Julie:

@T-zero no I haven't, I will check it out.
  2:38am Therese:

Speaking of Liberace: http://www.oldcookbooks.com/product/4457/Liberace-Cooks.html
  2:38am Julie:

oooh Death in June!
  2:40am Julie:

a cookbook that says "as told to." That must have been a quite a listening experience
  2:40am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

  2:41am Julie:

Therese apparently I showed up just in time for the "dark" set
  2:42am Tarantino:

i like yr 'Late Night Psilocybin Set.' i'm tripping off to sleep.
  2:42am Julie:

except when I brushed my teeth. I don't know what happened then.
  2:44am T-Zero:

@Julie: She's done a lot of Brechy, but look for her album simply titled "Brecht" for the cabaret stuff. I did a quick YouTube search but didn't find what I wanted for you.
  2:44am Kirsten:

Ahh. Metal.
  2:45am Julie:

Milva Canta Brecht
  2:46am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

SHAMELESS PLUG: If you like Mastodon check out the band I manage. http://maleveller.bandcamp.com/
  2:46am T-Zero:

Right! But I didn't want all of her opera house stuff ;) I was looking for her 1975 cabaret work
  2:47am Therese:

Sometimes nothing else will do, Kirsten!
  2:49am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Therese, tonight's selections have gone well with the thunder outside.
  2:51am T-Zero:

@Julie ... the album cover

  2:53am Julie:

  2:54am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

This makes me think of "Meddle"-era Pink Floyd.
  2:54am Julie:

@Bad Yes!
  2:55am Julie:

I mean I agree, not the band Yes
  2:55am T-Zero:

@Julie: I love that cover. I used to have a framed copy that was about 3-feet square.
  2:56am Julie:

  2:56am Kirsten:

  2:58am Julie:

I can't hear Scottish songs without thinking of Brigadoon
  2:59am Kirsten:

This should be your closing song every night
  3:03am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Good night, Therese. Have a fabulous week!
