Listener comments!

  3:01am fred von helsing:

Yeay !
  3:01am Glovanie:

What a great song to start with, Julie :D
  3:01am johnnykevlar:

I wish I was a macho man ;_; my skinny body is not in demand ;_;
  3:02am fred von helsing:

macho cheese doritos !
  3:06am johnnykevlar:

This song was rubbing in my despair, thank god it's over ;_;
  3:06am listener mark:

Good Morning Julie, fred, Glovanie, johnny
  3:08am johnnykevlar:

Good morning, mark.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:10am Julie:

Hey guys!
  3:13am johnnykevlar:

Great playlist thus far. I thought there was going to be all songs with "Man" in the title at first.
  3:13am Scuttle:

Love the theme! Great picks
  3:18am Dark Knight Dan:

Sounding sehr gut!
  3:18am johnnykevlar:

Klaus Nomi barely qualifies as a male 0_0
  3:19am fred von helsing:

Men are obsolete // Today's show is our swan song
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:20am Julie:

I appreciate your listening but I am not sure it is acceptable to spam your url like this
  3:21am fred von helsing:

  3:22am Lynn Lockjaw:

men? ... I'm looking at this hairless chested picture and I'm thinking "He's what? Twelve?" Good songs though :)
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:22am Julie:

Haha Lynn it was actually a last minute pick I might change it
  3:23am last.fm=johnnykevlar:

lol, last.fm isn't my URL, it's not like I'm promoting my own site, And you are the first DJ to mention that. It is definitely acceptable.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:24am Julie:

Promoting another website? really?
  3:24am Lynn Lockjaw:

Pink Floyd makes it all go away, I just close my eyes and listen anyway ;)
  3:26am last.fm=johnnykevlar:

It's not promoting anything. It's like posting a facebook page. You are the first and only person to ever mention it, and I'm a frequent commentator, do you even know what last.fm is? It's not like I get anything from people looking at my music tastes. People also never complain of the frequent linking to youtube that happens here. lol
  3:27am listener mark:

This calls for another whisky.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:28am Julie:

well I have never been one to go with the crowd, what can I say
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:31am Julie:

Now that I look at him, it's like a young Roger Daltry
  3:33am listener mark:

Just a short whisky then.
  3:35am Dark Knight Dan:

Davy Jones!
  3:36am last.fm=johnnykevlar:

He was more handsome that guy, I must challenge your taste in men here:
Now that is physical perfection ^ I'm not promoting anything either :)
  3:36am Deepak:

Hey everyone. One of my favorite bowie songs.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:37am Julie:

I wasn't really going for hotness I was going for more silly
  3:39am last.fm=johnnykevlar:

Is men being sexy a joke? Like LMFAO? <the band not the internet expression
  3:42am listener mark:

Don't over think it.
  3:42am Lynn Lockjaw:

oh hell with chair dancing *gets up and boogies*
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:43am Julie:

woohoo shake it Lynn
  3:46am Pie:

Always loved this song
  3:46am last.fm=johnnykevlar:

Do you think Iggy Pop was sexy forty years ago?
  3:50am fred von helsing:

googling johnnykevlar, the first hit is last.fm. The spam here is def not needed, it's just visual noise.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:51am Julie:

not really no
  3:52am Deepak:

i think johnny has been a very devoted listener of last.fm for past some time. A few more days here at wfmu and i doubt he'd wanna leave.
  3:55am last.fm=johnnykevlar:

A few WFMU DJs added me on last.fm, they would have to assume I had one or randomly google me to find it otherwise. My friendship that I started with Jason Sigal was worth it!
  3:56am me:

re: requests.... Anything by Saul Williams plz! :D
  3:56am Lynn Lockjaw:

  3:59am last.fm=johnnykevlar:

Hmm, googling my name, there appears to be another Johnny Kevlar that is 50 years old and likes Jefferson Airplane. I can get down with that guy.
  3:59am me:

oooh... .Williams practically == Morrison ;-) ... I guess I'm addicted to Saul, and just want more people to know ;-P
  4:01am Lynn Lockjaw:

request? anything by Leonard Cohen really, and his boy Adam Cohen has some good stuff too if you get a chance sometime. Saul also good :)
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:01am Julie:

oh man lynn i've already got LC next! get out of my brain!
  4:03am Lynn Lockjaw:

ah yes, "The Prince of Erotic Despair"
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:04am Julie:

Oh yessss.....:D
  4:05am fred von helsing:

The Prince of Erotic Despair ? Good grief, can I trademark that ? :-P
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:06am Julie:

this is definitely my seduction set, I am happily headphoning
  4:07am last.fm=johnnykevlar:

So you find Jim Morrison and Leonard Cohen sexier than Iggy Pop, then?
  4:11am Lynn Lockjaw:

fred, there's a whole LIST of them somewhere, Try googling "Leonard Cohen Nicknames" sometime
  4:11am fred von helsing:

Yeah what's with Nick Cave and the gals ? Is it some sort of Bukowski Lite thang ? Color me baffled.
  4:13am Lynn Lockjaw:

So, Cohen and Nick Cave ... now we just need a maniacal sexy redhead ... Elfman maybe? ;)
  4:16am fred von helsing:

Saw the DCD singer last year, the concert was great !
  4:18am fred von helsing:

Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:20am Julie:

@Lynn any particular song? My knowledge of all things Elfman is severely lacking
  4:20am Deepak:

@Julie Maybe 'Kitaro' or 'Enigma' for the last hour?
  4:20am last.fm=johnnykevlar:

^stop promoting another website
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:20am Julie:

@FVH DCD are touring!!
  4:22am fred von helsing:

hey cool
  4:23am demo:

That was a nice cycle!
  4:27am demo:

I thought the whole last half hour would particularly appeal to the European audience on their way to work. (from London)
  4:27am Lynn Lockjaw:

@Julie Weird Science is popular Elfman/Boingo though I have a special love for Wild Sex (in the Working Class) on the Boingo Alive album I believe
  4:28am demo:

Julie you have the sixth sense and you don't even know it.
  4:29am fred von helsing:

given today's photograph, I riilly was expecting more disco. next week I hope for yé-yé cheesecake.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:31am Julie:

You got it Lynn, will get that in the next set
  4:36am Lynn Lockjaw:

Sounds great Julie. Taking my headphones with me, but probably AFK for the rest. Thanks.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:37am Julie:

Thanks for visiting Lynn!
  5:00am ausmanx:

just arrived this evening from the antipodes, good evening everyone, good evening julie... thought i'd come on on the aust track
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:02am Julie:

Hiya Aus!
  5:03am fred von helsing:

ah yes that distinctive guitar !
  5:07am ausmanx:

THE most underrated Genesis album, post Gabriel... haven't heard this for years!
  5:08am fred von helsing:

Genesis gives me flashbacks. The prog station at school was run by a Genesis cult, so you could never get in trouble for playing too much of it. This is late 70s. Fun times.
  5:12am fred von helsing:

Any and every evening of prog rock must end with Watcher of the Skies
  5:20am Matt from Springfield:

Loved that "60 Years On", I love catalogue tracks by Elton, probably because most of them are not played often and still fresh!

Hiya Julie, everybody!
Wow, all dudes tonight!
  5:21am pierre:

Dark night of the streets of Paris.
Bonjour Julie!
Bonjour listeners!
  5:22am ausmanx:

i think regular listeners would be pretty confident that Ray would also turn up in your blokes' show, Julie! sorry to have missed my hero Julian at the top of the show too; he doesn't get enough exposure on FMU!
  5:22am Matt from Springfield:

@ausmanx: Yes, Julie has said that Wind & Wuthering is her fav Genesis album, she's played "Blood on the Rooftop" in particular before. I myself like the transition from Peter to Phil, at first it was just like the later albums with Peter before he left.
  5:23am fred von helsing:

wow, doin' the time warp
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:23am Julie:

Hello Matt, Bonjour Pierre!
  5:24am pierre:

I'm always late, sorry.
  5:24am Matt from Springfield:

@FVH: "Watcher of the Skies", who does that? That interests me.

Bonjour pierre!
  5:25am ausmanx:

hey matt, and Seconds Out is one The great live albums too... and pierre, heading Paris-ward on Saturday. sorry Fred, Watcher is diabolical... it's genesis at their most pompous, Matt, but it was one of their most popular!
  5:25am Jay/ London:

good morning Julie and all from another hot and sunny day in London
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:26am Julie:

Hot & Sunny??
  5:29am Jay/ London:

yessss 21 c it should be about 10c at this time of year and it has not rained for sometime
  5:29am pierre:

Same here in Paris, we're in a sunny week, which makes it hard to focus on work, and not go out and take care of my plants.
  5:32am Matt from Springfield:

It's just chilling off in the East Coast!
It got cooler yesterday afternoon--I've been mostly on AC but it was frigid in here when I woke up and now the heat's on! (63F--that's like 17C...)
  5:33am Matt from Springfield:

This is a familiar song, but one that I never found out till I started listening to FMU a few years ago--it's kind of understated Soft Cell compared to their dance-heavy hits.

"Bedsitter Images" :)
  5:36am Jay/ London:

love this set Julie it takes me back to when i lived in kiburn in a bedsit when these came out
  5:36am fred von helsing:

Life During Wartime gained some relevance when Ronnie's reign of (t)error began
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:37am Julie:

I think it might have been on the Times Square soundtrack which is where I think I heard it first
  5:39am Jay/ London:

yes it is julie very odd film
  5:40am Matt from Springfield:

Too bad I wasn't up for the middle of this show--those male vocal selections made for almost perfect, mellow late night listening!

From "Nights in White Satin", to "At The Chime of a City Clock", "Golden Hair", "Lalena", Tyrannosaurus Rex and Robyn Hitchcock...I'll listen to that whole when it's dark out!
  5:42am Matt from Springfield:

@FVH: Can I license "Reign of (T)Error" from you for a potential album name! :)
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:43am Julie:

Reign of Erotic Despair?
  5:45am fred von helsing:

@MfS it's miles from original
@dj Reign of Erotic Despair and Dishpan Hands
  5:45am Jay/ London:

great song for the view i have :)
  5:45am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie (album cover): Very sexy woman in black scanty clad underwear, lying out on a bed, with a sad, soft pout look at the camera. :)
  5:46am pierre:

You know this feeling when an advertising totally ruins a song. Some creepy advertisers did that to Mr blue sky. How I hate them...
  5:48am Matt from Springfield:

@pierre: On the other hand I wouldn't even know of this song if weren't for an advertiser: Volkswagen. Over 10 years ago they had ad campaigns here with very good music, and the Mr. Blue Sky one was like a one minute short story film.

Which ads were you thinking of?
  5:48am fred von helsing:

oh for a few bars there it sounded like one of the themes in Lynch's Dune
  5:50am Matt from Springfield:

Hey FVH, it seems you're the only one holding the fort here for the whole show! Congrats!

Don't know where some of the regulars are tonight, but it looks like some new people might become regulars here--will have to see..
  5:50am fred von helsing:

I hope Julie's Dark Wayback Machine of the Soul doesn't get stuck here in 1980, I'd hate t'hafta relive the 80s all over again GACK!!!!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:51am Julie:

going farther back shortly!
  5:52am Matt from Springfield:

Gotta end on a 60s note, Julie! :D
  5:52am Jay/ London:

to the 70s ?
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:53am Julie:

I neeeded this song for some reason
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:53am Julie:

all day long "I get excitement at your feet" was in my head
  5:54am fred von helsing:

yes, it is a classic line, lovely, a keeper
  5:55am pierre:

@Matt: a French one for a phone company. I mean I understand the discovering argument, but the problem with add, is that it's meant to be played over and over to make you want to buy something. Thus making the song heard a hundred time in a short time, and never in its entirety. I imagine them:"well ok, we're totally going to kill this song for everybody!"
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:55am Julie:

thanks everyone for listening! See ya next week, and I'll bring the girls
  5:56am Matt from Springfield:

"We'll forsake you / We're gonna rape you / We'll forget you, better still"!! Great verse!!
  5:56am fred von helsing:

Girls ? Then don't forget a pick-a-nick basket !
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:56am Julie:

everybody SING!
  5:57am Matt from Springfield:

@pierre: True, squeezing out a song for an ad just kills it. It can take so long before people listen to it again with a fresh set of ears.
  5:58am Matt from Springfield:

Great show Julie! Thanks!

You'll bring the girls next week? Consider The Weather Girls, I think an album of theirs was "Here Come The Girls".
  5:58am fred von helsing:

"a fresh set of ears", for some reason that expression makes my brain tickle. Thank you Mlle. DJ for another Fab-a-thon !
  5:58am Jay/ London:

i will be back at work next week so will have to go to listen again but i will be with you in spiral loved the show amsinging along
  5:58am pierre:

Exactly Matt
  5:59am Glovanie:

  5:59am Matt from Springfield:

Have a great Tuesday everyone! Bye!
  8:27am Van in DC:

Hmm. A curve ball!
