Listener comments!

  12:06am Minnesota Jeff:

  12:06am musikoff:

Cash up, people!
  12:12am Dan:

Is this a Blondie cover or the other way round?
  12:13am Jack:

Blondie covered it.
  12:13am Quoth Wiki:

""Hanging on the Telephone" is a song written by Jack Lee and first performed by Lee's short-lived US West Coast power pop trio The Nerves, who placed it as the lead-off track on their 1976 EP, the band's only release. New Wave band Blondie popularised the song when it was released as the second single off Parallel Lines in both the U.S. and the UK, eventually reaching number 5 in the UK in November 1978 as well as inspiring other cover versions."
  12:16am Dan:

How about that that's a pledge-worthy answer right there!
  12:18am Kenzo:

I have been startled by John Allen.
  12:18am Quoth Wiki:

Yeah, pledge! Wikipedia begs for money too, to keep its independence. Invest in what you believe in. Invest in what you enjoy and benefits you.
  12:20am musikoff:

no, no, no...$91.1 x 4 = mouse (well, just short by $.60). CHEERS!
Avatar 12:30am Kenzo:

This song is totally 70's Disney World.
  12:31am Dan:

I think it sounds like the anthem for a cult.
Avatar 12:32am Kenzo:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32am Therese:

Wait, this isn't a cult?
  12:33am efd:

Pledge to WFMU, the station that offers not just one but TWO different DJ premiums with songs by (Canadian band) Klaatu.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33am Therese:

Call 800-989-9368 or pledge online at WFMU.org to be in the running for this Destroyer CD! Or Annette Peacock's "I'm the One!'
  12:38am Jack:

who you callin' a Jack S?
  12:42am Bob in DC and/or VA:

Therese, I tried to use the new "Spread the love among more than one show" to contribute to your program earlier today. I hope it showed up as part of your total. Long live 'FMU!
Avatar 12:45am Kenzo:

It did, Bob! You were probably thanked during the first round.
  12:46am JFK:

Pahk the er intahplanetary crahft in Hahvud Yahd.
  12:48am G:

Take a bow, Kenzo!!!!
  12:53am Bob in DC and/or VA:

Thanks, Kenzo! I just wanted to make sure Therese gets the credit for her awesome show.

Also, great job finding your car.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56am Therese:

Could you tell that John and I really like Kenzo?
  1:02am hic:

John you are allright
  1:03am Doctor B.:

Did you just mention Will Hermes? You should know that he was a DJ at another free-form station, WHRW in Binghamton, NY!
  1:03am Terre T:

We all really <3 Kenzo! And do u realize, if not for Kenzo u wouldn't be reading these comments about him!
  1:04am Doctor B.:

Kenzo rocks! (He's another former WHRW jock!)
  1:15am marc:

Does the "Therese & Mike" Show get a Marathon show?
  1:19am Scuttle:

I'd hate to see Mike debase himself for cash
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26am Therese:

Don't worry, Mike fans! Your patience will be rewarded...
  1:27am Dan:

Mike, Gary with Therese moderating.
  1:32am monica:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33am Therese:

Oh, Ms. Monica! I am still wearing a fascinator in your honor.
  1:34am monica:

  1:41am Bill:

i'll be back at 2 then.
  1:42am KP:

  1:44am yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Israel,Earth,Milky Way):

Good morning everyone
  1:50am jeff in hawaii:

Good evening Therese! What's an Oscar?
  1:50am jeff in hawaii:

Good evening Therese! What's an Oscar?
  1:50am KP:

  1:51am KP:

Oh gawd Joe is there and my phone is broken. Oh merciless fate!
  1:52am Bridget:

  1:55am Dan:

I wanna hear about Mike's bar shifts at Massa's.
  1:57am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

The Replacements covered this song A LOT. But not as often as T Rex's "20th Century Boy.
  1:58am Danne D:

Yay Therese :)
Btw - 26. I think the number I'm trying to remember now is 26.
  2:00am KP:

Oscar is a playwright entombed next to Jim Morrison.
  2:00am Danne D:

Everybody needs to pledge - this is the one chance to show Therese how much you love her show :)
  2:00am Marmalade Kitty:

good morning!
  2:00am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

The lure of Mark E. Smith is irresistible!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01am Therese:

We're adding this Fall LP to the prize bucket!!
  2:03am Danne D:

Not to sound conspiratorial, but first there's a Storage Wars marathon opposite Tom's marathon shift and now there's another one opposite Therese!
  2:03am Marmalade Kitty:

  2:04am Danne D:

Hi MK :)
  2:04am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

Ohhh, Therese, you had me at all of you greats, PLUS Mike as the lovable prurient icing.
  2:05am ausmanx:

Adam, I assume you haven't seen MES lately? Not a pretty sight... Evening all from the Antipodes
  2:06am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

I promise a carving off of some prize account to this fine finery during hour three.
  2:07am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

@ausmanx, I am a fairly ardent lover of grotesquery. Hahaha. ;-)
  2:10am Bob in DC and/or VA:

Therese will CRUSH Storage Wars, the same way Monica and Martha destroyed the Oscars earlier tonight.
  2:10am Gary the Squirrel:

Miiiiiiiiike, Miiiiiiiiiike, I'm going to take horny up into my tree and then drop it and bop you on the nose with it!
  2:11am Dave Hester:

  2:11am Who Would This Be?:

HEY MIKE...! HEY MIKE...! What would the opposite of charm and intelligence be????
  2:12am Dan:

Mike on the mic.....miiiiic
  2:12am Who Would This Be?:

  2:14am Danne D:

Dammit Therese - now I have that Milford Plaza commercial in my head!
  2:15am Sleazoid:

Hey sweetie, got the time?
  2:16am Danne D:

Wonder if that Sleazoid guy is a regular at Massa's now
  2:17am Sleazoid:

  2:17am Danne D:

Pledge in honor of John Allen's clear discomfort with this conversation.
  2:18am Danne D:

GET IT?????
  2:18am Dan:

jeez Mike
  2:18am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Josh used to live in Dallas. I got to see him and Robert Crumb have a blues jam together years ago. Josh's brother Drew is an illustrator whose work has appeared in Mad, Cracked, The New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone.
  2:19am Danne D:

"A taste" Mike? Really?
  2:19am Danne D:

Awaiting the AP Mike One Man Show on broadway reading this.
  2:19am KP:

Therese, is this a bad time to talk Downton Abbey?
  2:20am Danne D:

Note to self - never go to a fast food place with Mike
  2:23am Sleazoid:

Mike's annotated copy??? with footnotes adding his own creepy experiences???? HOLY CRAP!
  2:24am Danne D:

Thanks :)
  2:25am Danne D:

Honestly, with the dues she has paid, Therese really deserves to make her goal. And this is her one week - so there's no holding back Therese Fans!
  2:25am Dan:

Thanks ;)
  2:26am Danne D:

  2:28am KP:

Entemann's is from Long Island. Thy have since moved off.
  2:32am G:

Entemann's is owned by a Mexican company, Bimbo. Wiki: "Weston sold its United States interests including Entemann's in 2008 to Mexican conglomerate Grupo Bimbo. Other BBU holdings include companies such as Thomas', Brownberry, Boboli, Arnold, Oroweat, Freihofer’s, and Stroehmann.["
  2:32am Danne D:

Will that book be arriving in an unmarked package, btw?
  2:33am G:

Yes, and the cops will also check the winner's computer for child porn, or something like that. Good luck, everyone!
  2:35am Dan:

How far have you got to go to get US$4000.00?
  2:37am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

Donald Fagen is a relation. Once we actually meet I will try to get past his gruffness to convince him of the boundless merits of contributing to WFMU! :-(
  2:42am Danne D:

You're a good one, Adam :)
  2:43am Danne D:

@Dan 31% times 4000 = $1240 from the goal.
  2:48am KP:

Let it shine, shine, shine.
  2:49am Dan:

TOP UP GUYS! We can do this!
  2:49am Danne D:

Therese's entrie inheritance and family fortune has now gone instead to FMU :)
  2:50am Danne D:

Bas is awesome :)

Nice Dead reference, Therese :)
  2:51am KB:

Therese is right, I do have the KV album already. :) 

Does that mean I've won Mike's creepy book? Oh my!
  2:52am KP:

Tell Joe I have a 32-minute version of Love Light,with the Allman Brothers andPeter Green. I'm sure Jesse is famiiiar with it. He can play it Tuesday
  2:52am Danne D:

Therese is like 2 mouse pledges to her goal
  2:52am Danne D:

I'm a little relieved that I won a book other than the AP Mike Book - I was a little confused there :)
  2:53am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

  2:54am Dan:

  2:54am KB:

As a KB, I support KV going to a KP!
  2:54am Who Would This Be?:

  2:55am KP:

Turn On Your Love Light, let it shine, shine, shine. i think joe should sing a verse.
  2:55am Danne D:

LOL Adam. Just saying you might want to invest in some gloves.
  2:56am KP:

  2:57am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

I'll handle Times Square with kid gloves. Well, gloves anyway, Danne D. Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59am Therese:

800-989-9368 or wfmu.org!!
  3:00am KB:

All Mike's "thrust" talk has given this F'd Up love song song a whole new context.
  3:01am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Come on people. I pledged. If you haven't make it happen. DO IT!
  3:03am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

There are two in the heart of Seattle. Or there were when I lived there. I had a friend that worked at one.
