Listener comments!

  9:02am Mark:

note the bumper sticker on John Peels wall to the left of the window:
  9:04am northguineahills:

Sweet, Mark. Nice find!
  9:05am Ken From Hyde Park:

Good morning, Ken.
Signed, Ken.
  9:05am too much coffee:

thanks for the inspiration and moral leadership, ken
  9:05am Mark:

  9:05am Caryn:

John Tesh reporting on punk? How come that meeting of two opposing fronts didn't create a tear in the space-time continuum is beyond me... Still, their definition of punk is still better than here:
  9:08am tr--sh:

Good wednesday music morning, everyone.
  9:08am Mark:

ooh an Alan Vega cover
  9:10am Caryn:

"It's a toy. You know... for kids!"
  9:11am f0f0 (:

Hi Ken F, Ken F HP, and other fellow listeners and DJ's listening to The Man. Well, not that Man! But THE Man.
  9:12am Andrew Waterloo:

Caryn that Punk commercial is trip
  9:13am Dan B From Upstate:

Morning, all.
  9:13am Caryn:

@Andrew: yeah, lord knows we all pogoed to Huey Lewis and Crowded House...
  9:14am Caryn:

Ooh, Bardot & Birkin! JBBB!
  9:17am ricardo montalban:

That band pictured in that TV news feature ad is The Cramps.
  9:19am glenn:

pogoing to crowded house? you finns are crazy.
  9:20am Mark:

and the best version of the Cramps with Nick Knox and Bryan Gregory
  9:21am Dan B From Upstate:

I love the Russian version of this song. It sounds so much more sinister than the english version.
  9:21am Caryn:

@glenn: yeah, crazy and sarcastic. Although you'll pogo to anything just to stay warm during the winter months.
  9:23am ricardo montalban:

That news feature, Raunch and Roll has yet to surface on the yoo toobs.
  9:25am still b/p:

Put the bear owners/trainers in those same outfits and make them jump rope, and then feed them to the bears, and then I will be entertained.
  9:25am Caryn:

I'm with sb/p on this.
  9:27am Mark:

poor Britney is bored
  9:28am Caryn:

"Oh, I'm so bored, what will I do to relieve the ennui? Oh I know, I'll shave my head during the lunch break."
  9:32am Caryn:

Now I'm utterly curious why Ken wouldn't put the M.O.1.O. track's name up...
  9:38am Britney:

C'monnnnn bell. Ditched my panties in the desk; gonna hit the 'razzi with a three o'clock crotch shot.
  9:44am Mark:

I wish I knew where my "Saturn Strip" cd was
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45am Ken:

Morning all. Jesus im a mess this morning.
  9:45am dale:

love it - you made me think of basketball jones earlier!
  9:46am earwax:

I hope this is followed by Basketball Jones
  9:50am D.:

Is it bad that I recognised this song just a second in?
  9:50am dale:

i enjoy brown sugar saturday night on channel 9's subchannel, bounce tv. they had a dolomite movie a couple months ago that was wrong, so wrong
  9:50am Dan B From Upstate:

Are we building up to the Booty Bank?
  9:51am earwax:

Dr. Ernest Freaky Bootygrabber - bootyologist
  9:51am too much coffee:

on ken's show, all roads lead to the Booty Bank
  9:51am dale:

ken, do you have dr. octagonecologyst?
  9:51am too much coffee:

thanks for the seduction tips, btw
  9:51am Cecile:

  9:52am Cecile:

old spice man!
  9:53am Cecile:

I love the pubahs. The Frank Zappas of house music. WIth way shorter songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53am Ken:

Somebody robbed the Booty Bank CD
  9:53am Caryn:

Does that ordinance mean that going topless is ok?
  9:54am Cecile:

Ken, do you have access to "Mushrooms" by Marshall Jefferson? It's not booty themed, but it's way strange.
  9:54am Nathan:

Probably gang bangers...
  9:54am Dan B From Upstate:

Ken, did you add the goat sound effect in, or was that on the record? Because it was so subtle.... I loved it.
  9:54am Cecile:

it's the only house song where the phrase "tonsil hockey" appears as far as I know.
  9:56am hs dance proctor:

No grinding!
  9:56am Mark:

this is FCC safe?
  9:56am ~L:

Bisogno uno Radiofrigo!
  9:56am popo:

blue flowers?
  9:56am northguineahills:

Good cal, Dale!
  9:56am paul:

this is definitely a dump button track
  9:57am f0f0 (:

Is there a song about the Boob Bank? just sayin'
  9:58am dale:

that scratchin is making me itch - down there
  9:59am Mark:

I would have enjoyed "Earth People"
  9:59am Cecile:

it's just beats now, but 3 minutes in it gets kind of strange.
  9:59am makin' equal time:

..or the Savings & Bone?
  9:59am Doc Oc:

Earth People I was made of juniper!
  10:00am anne:

hooray for mushrooms!
  10:00am Mark:

Kool keith is still out there releasing music
  10:01am paul:

actually keith recently announced that he's retiring. or so he says.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02am Ken:

Great suggestions people!
  10:03am dale:

earth people - my colors are green red and purple!
  10:04am Cecile:

tongue hockey, my bad.
  10:05am glenn:

tongue hockey. often followed by chesterfield rugby.
  10:06am popo:

tonsil talk at this hour? where do you go from there?
  10:06am Mark:

ah Paul, he says he is retiring from rap, not necessarily music
  10:07am Lusty Month of May:

Cigarette filth or foreplay? May my spell on Ken win out!
  10:09am paul:

kool keith's last 10 years worth of recordings have sounded closer to spoken word than rap anyway.
  10:12am Otis:

i'll take these shrooms way over that bump-bump-boring tongue trip. freakyeah! and tommy waits for no one.
  10:12am the squire of self indulgence:

her eyes her eyes they hypnotize
  10:12am too much coffee:

I've always thought this song was written for me in about 15 years
  10:14am too much coffee:

still building up the resume for it
  10:14am Caryn:

It has to be said that foraging for mushrooms is definitely on the "gathering" side of the "hunting & gathering" arrangement. No-one hunts mushrooms, except maybe in some scifi stories.
  10:15am Otis:

not repo man
  10:16am George of Troy:

Don't recall that from Repo Man.
  10:17am giselle:

I love Dr Bootygrabber too!
  10:17am pgw in mntclr:

if you like kool keith but haven't heard his song "professional photographer", please do give it a listen
  10:17am f0f0 (:

Got any film question? Just ask Caryn!©

or visit caryn,0,0,
  10:17am βrian:

But it does feel like the mushrooms are trying to evade you. They hide and hypnotize.
  10:19am f0f0 (:

And there's also mushrooms that find you.
  10:19am βrian:

.... and help one find oneself?
  10:20am f0f0 (:

  10:21am Otis:

anyone see Repo man sequel Alex Cox did recently: Repo CHick?
  10:21am Caryn:

Oh bless, f0f0 (:
And I don't think that's from Repo Man. That pic can be found on numerous websites about funny real-world signs, so I think it's a real sign.
  10:21am earwax: says the no mushroom sign is from a cemetery in Indiana
  10:22am northguineahills:

Big Blood can do no wrong.
  10:22am Mark:

I believe that people do hunt for certain types of mushrooms
  10:22am Caryn:

With all this mushroom talk, it's as if Bill Hicks is back. Which I wouldn't mind.
  10:23am the squire of self indulgence:

: "Likes" the comment:

"the hunting and gathering arrangement"
  10:25am La Madame:

Would you prefer the hunting room this evening, or the gathering room?
  10:28am Jon:

Wonderful track from Rebby Sharp. I'm going to stop smoking immediately.
  10:29am Caryn:

Ah, the gathering room with all the rare and exotic heads of lettuce mounted on the walls, the stuffed berries and mushrooms in the glass cabinets, and the fabulous Turkish rug of woven lichen on the floor...
  10:31am tr--sh:

Addiction. Customers for life.

If the addiction kills, you must recruit new ones, which is expensive.

But addiction? "Awesome!"
  10:31am Caryn:

So, apparently there's a flash of blue light in the sky...
  10:31am SteveL:

If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck...
  10:32am Caryn:

Well, that hunting trip turned kinky...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33am Ken:

That was the only picture of an antler I could find on such short notice.
  10:34am northguineahills:

Jozef Can Wissem, always nice..... (my generic comments are in direct correlation to my lack of sleep).
  10:36am D.:

this reminds me of the theme for For A Fistful of Dollars (or the sequel?)
  10:39am f0f0 (:

oh lordy...such great songs...and all in a row! can't.
  10:45am Caryn:

Stephen Fry: "A man some years ago was found not guilty of behaving indecently with a duck on the grounds that it is actually a physical impossibility to do any such thing, whether because ducks as a species are generally held to be so lost to shame and so sunk in sin that they are incorruptible or because of the limitations of their physical dimensions I have no idea."
  10:46am Cecile:

ken if you dig up some Anouar Brahem, you won't be sorry.
  10:51am curious:

Is that a silhouette of Bogey bogeying a bogey?
  10:52am Sam:

Maybe ducks are lost to shame and sunk in sin because duck rhymes with the f word
  10:52am f0f0 (:

But I have seen huge ducks.
  10:52am Cecile:

off to a meeting. Later!
  10:58am KP:

Otis, suppose you're thinking about a Repo Man sequel. Suddenly somebody will say like Repo Man sequel out of the blue, no explanation.
  10:59am bw:

the images crashed my stream!!!
  11:00am Mark:

Two explorers are at their London club. One says to the other, ‘Did you hear about Old Chumley? On his last expedition to Africa he married a gorilla!’ ‘Good God,’ says the other. ‘That’s a bit queer.’ ‘Oh no,’ replies the first explorer. ‘It was a female gorilla.’
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00am Ken:

bw: loser!
  11:01am Dave B:

Good Morning
  11:02am Caryn:

What do you get when you cross a dolphin with a sheep? A woolly jumper.
What do you get when you cross a dolphin with a man? A court case.
  11:02am Mark:

I am deeply ashamed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02am Ken:

Mark - That is such a stupid joke, you big stupid jokemaker, you should be ashamed of yourself.
  11:03am bw:

loser - who you calling loser!!!!!
  11:03am Mark:

ha I beat you
  11:04am Miss Manners:

Its nice to be important, but its more important to be nice.
  11:04am Sam:

Miss Manners is a fascist psychopath!
  11:04am Caryn:

And Andy will ask the vet about sex with ducks...
  11:07am Carmichael:

Hello Kenneth. Hello, all.
  11:07am Miss Manners:

Thank you for sharing your opinion, you godless, commie degenerate. [curtsey]
  11:08am Caryn:

Incidentally, Urent Trav means "dirty game" or "dirty play", which fits the gif. Nice pronunciation on Sininen Valo, Ken!
  11:11am Caryn:

That's a prelude to what is less "dream date with Kiss" than it is "brief, sweaty groupie moment with Kiss".
  11:12am Dan B From Upstate:

Brief sweaty groupie moment with Kiss still sounds like it could be someone's fontasy.
  11:12am SteveL:

What am I doing after the show? Combing your chest hair, THAT's what I'm doing.
  11:13am Caryn:

@Dan B: which is why they should just say that straight out!
  11:14am Caryn:

Somehow I think this ad wouldn't fly these days... "Buy this record or I off myself! Come on, I dare ya!"
Incidentally, anyone know if the record was a hit or not?
  11:16am Caryn:

Also, it would be interesting if you had an ad like this, didn't have a hit, but in the end wouldn't kill yourself, only to have some advertising standards authority come tell you to either kill yourself fortwith or pay a fine for going against "truth in advertising" legislation.
  11:18am Mark:

you might be over thinking it Caryn
  11:19am Dan B From Upstate:

Sounds like we have the beginning of a "The State" -esque sketch here!
  11:20am Caryn:

@Mark: just coming up with a darkly comic short story idea...
  11:20am tr--sh:

I think she's on to something.
The non-purchasers have zero say from a consumer rights perspective because they weren't part of any transaction.
  11:20am Mark:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am Ken:

I found the song so we'll see if it was worht suicide or not. It was minor hit/
  11:20am Dave B:

Reading back thru the comments (at around 10:30) reminds me of this...
  11:20am Thierry:

Hello from France! Great set. Quiete a few of your 2nd hour tracks brought me back to Algebra Suicide.
  11:21am Otis:

@KP: Repo Chick in village voice
  11:21am paula pc:

@ Caryn - Wikipedia says "I Think I'm Gonna Kill Myself" hit #55 on the US charts. His first hit "Party Doll" was his biggest I think...but this may all be beside your point. Looking forward to hearing Ken play it...
  11:22am Caryn:

@Ken: a minor hit, you say? So does that mean Joe got away scot-free, or that he just gave himself a flesh wound?
Avatar 11:23am bw:

Ken your show makes me feel young!
  11:23am Mark:

so Repo Chick is a real thing
  11:24am other david:

Well that was interesting, had a call to the door from the MRBI, Irish market research - on my radio listening habits.

Station you listen to most often? Err.. WFMU.. W.. F..M..U.. it's in New Jersey.
  11:25am Mark:

I have to leave early, I'm going to get a hot dog in Baldwin
  11:25am other david:

Do you switch when the ads come on? Err.. there are no ads.
  11:26am Caryn:

@od: hah!
  11:27am other david:

My only regret: I wasnt wearing my WFMU tshirt
  11:28am Caryn:

Oh lord, Åke Blomqvist's disco lesson... seriously, this is not TOTALLY representative of Finland in the 70s and 80s. Only a little.
  11:29am Thierry:

:-) Brussels circa 1980
  11:40am Cecile:

hola again
  11:41am notglenn:

good morning
  11:44am lee:

finally, a decent katy cover
  11:45am KP:

  11:45am f0f0 (:

hola cecile! Lately, you have been kind of busy. We miss our All Glory to Hypno-Cecile.
  11:46am BSI:

  11:46am Cecile:

  11:47am Mark:

Led Zep! Dude!
  11:47am darlyn:

Haha, I love those voiceovers. So completely spontaneous. Where is the one about the ambulance from?
  11:49am Otis:

RC got a mixed reaction but anything not the smae as the original is going to get some hate. Cox is still interesting (, whether he can still make a movie i don't know.
  11:50am Mark:

R Stevie Moore is to featured in the cover story the June 2012 issue of The Wire
