or this. This is good too. :D
  12:17pm paula pc:

this is a great start, Diane! And can't wait for Julie Christmas!!!!
  12:21pm Cecile:

I imagine Julie looking like some begraggled cross between a Holly Hobbie doll and Ophelia.
  12:25pm Tom L.:

Diane always knows what to play to make me feel better. Thanks!
  12:26pm Tom L.:

Especially Brutal Truth! (Saw them play live in the early 90s at DC 9:30 Club, been a fan ever since then...
  12:27pm Tom L.:

Now expecting her to play Agoraphobic Nosebleed (which discovered via Diane, of course...)

great job.
  1:16pm mb:

Right on. Don't cut this one let it play through please.
  1:17pm Cecile:

Julie, what are your biggest influences?
  1:20pm Cheri Pi:

It's a winner!
  1:21pm Cecile:

Wow, that's interesting. I would have picked you for a Riot Grrl.
  1:21pm Cecile:

You can't go wrong with David Yow.
  1:22pm Cecile:

Late period Billie Holiday?
  1:23pm Cheri Pi:

Any funny stories of sudden public singing?
  1:26pm Billy Jam:

she had me at Flipper
  1:26pm Cheri Pi:

that's right Billy Jam!
  1:27pm DeutsChe pat:

Flipper: always a win. There's a cover of this?
  1:28pm DeutsChe pat:

  1:28pm Cecile:

Billy Jam! hello!

Ha Ha Ha is uncoverable.
  1:28pm Aly:

what was the name of that french song?
  1:29pm DeutsChe pat:

I'm with Cecile, you can't really cover Flipper.
  1:29pm DeutsChe pat:

Except maybe Sex Bomb
  1:29pm Cecile:

not if you are sane at all.
and they're not unsane enough.
  1:29pm Cheri Pi:

agreed. Nice try though Unsane.
  1:31pm DeutsChe pat:

hmmmm....several covers of this
  1:31pm Cecile:

ok, is the Credence cover going to follow up? God bless them for paying homage to Jay. Thumbs down for the cover.
  1:32pm DeutsChe pat:

Little story: I knew I was going to have to break up with my girlfriend when we were driving and this came on AM radio and she just said: "This is obnixoius..."
  1:33pm Cecile:

and I said ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
  1:34pm Cheri Pi:

You can take this off right now DK-This (circles head) is a CCR free zone ;)
  1:35pm Cecile:

I love CCR, but not this.
  1:35pm Cecile:

  1:36pm Natacha:

Does Julie have any tips on keeping her voice in shape? How does she not lose her voice after several days of shows?
  1:36pm Cecile:

dcp, you did right. I rarely say that in matters of taste, but yes.
  1:38pm Cecile:

I respectfully disagree.
  1:38pm DeutsChe pat:

yeah, she's long gone. I mean, that's a difference in the basic understanding of the universe.
  1:39pm Billy Jam:

hi Cecile - hope U R well.......Hi Diane - enjoying your show and your guest
  1:40pm DeutsChe pat:

  1:40pm Cecile:

I'm great, hope you are well as well.
  1:42pm StuBot:

How the HELL can you dismiss and turn off Creedence Clearwater Revivals version of "put a spell on you" its a great rendidtion....snobbery.
  1:42pm Cecile:

I am not a snob. Lord knows. It's not my favorite version.
  1:42pm Rob-ATL:

Just Got Paid :)
  1:43pm DeutsChe pat:

  1:44pm StuBot:

I can't believe the amount of SNOBS on this playlist, you people suck.
  1:44pm Shawn:

Betty Davis was Miles Davis' wife.
  1:44pm Cheri Pi:

I love that hot freak Betty Davis!@
Avatar 1:45pm Kamikaze:

Fight fight fight! You're playing into Julie's hands!!
  1:45pm Cheri Pi:

having an opinion isn't snobbery, it's freedom of speech.
  1:45pm chris:

It should be out of bounds to cut off something so funky! Let Bette roll!
  1:46pm DeutsChe pat:

you equate someone's personal taste to snobbery? weird.
  1:47pm Cecile:

This is like Hose doing Ohio Players songs. I approve.
  1:47pm Cheri Pi:

AEOC have this line "Your fanny's like two sperm whales" that cracks me up and kinda ruins the song in a good way...
  1:47pm mike in sf:

ha ha i've been crankin' this song for months, had no idea it was a cover.
  1:48pm sleyja:

Great show Diane!
  1:48pm Cecile:

fine kamikaze, but you get to sew up everyone's face after the damage is done.
  1:48pm Cheri Pi:

This cover absolutely RAWKS!!!
  1:48pm Cheri Pi:

I want red thread though for my patchwork face, green's not my color (sorry to sound like a snob)
  1:49pm Cecile:

hey, Julie, you ever hear the BulletBoys do Tom Waits's Hang on St. Christopher?
  1:50pm BSI:

Just got here. I wish to be a snob. Where do I sign?
Is there a fee?
  1:51pm Cecile:

You have to let stubot hit your head with a bottle and then Diane will sew up your head with fishing line
  1:52pm BSI:

The bottle must be brown glass, then. This is snobbery after all.
  1:53pm Cheri Pi:

Julie-please don't play Rush/their covers or this board will turn into a patchwork crazy quilt of gorey faces
  1:53pm Cecile:

This song is actually a cover, and it's a great one.
  1:54pm Billy Jam:

cant wait to read comments when Britney Spears comes on -
  1:54pm Cheri Pi:

  1:55pm Cheri Pi:

[searching my desk drawer for that emergency 5th of whiskey]
  1:56pm chris:

Rush or Britney would bring the trolls out, I can't possibly not listen!
  1:56pm chris:

oh hell yes
  1:56pm Cecile:

I actually like the beat, not so much the Brit.
Well, gotta get going to a meeting. Damn, I'll miss all the fun.
  1:56pm common:

nice pairing!
  1:57pm Rob-ATL:

I think Joan Jett has the better music / fashion sense.
  1:57pm some other guy:

so this exists, huh?
  1:58pm Tati&Marie:

We were promised Muppets!!!
  1:59pm dinatekno:

I am absolutely certain in my disdain for Britney Spears....that horrific cover cements my horror.
  1:59pm some other guy:

The Arrows
  1:59pm scooter:

it was written by the arrows
  1:59pm chris:

"I Love Rock 'n Roll" is a rock song written in 1975 by Alan Merrill and Jake Hooker of Arrows, who recorded the first released version. The song was later made famous by the hit version by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts in 1981
  1:59pm Rob-ATL:

quick - to Wikipedia!
  1:59pm Ken Southerland:

"I Love Rock 'n Roll" is a rock song written in 1975 by Alan Merrill and Jake Hooker of Arrows, who recorded the first released version. The song was later made famous by the hit version by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts in 1981.[1]
  2:00pm Cheri Pi:

  2:00pm dinatekno:

The Arrows did the original version!!
  2:01pm dinatekno:

Another bit of trivia re: the Arrows. Jake Hooker was once married to Lorna Luft....back in the 70's.
  2:03pm Dave B:

Here they are on Granada/iTV back in 76

  2:03pm Cheri Pi:

fro wiki" Although not a chart hit in its original version as a result of nonexistent promotion by the band's label, the song has come to worldwide prominence due to very successful cover versions."
  2:04pm StuBot:

Hey, you can like Shitt Romney and have the opinion that republikans can fix the economy by shoving a baseball bat up our collective asses, that doesn't make it true. CCr's version is DIFFERENT, but it has great impact and delivers on a similar message and structure with a different delivery. How many of you critic/snobs are even musicians? As a musician, I respect BOTH.
  2:04pm chris:

I love that wind through the trees background sound! That layer adds a nice unsettling touch to the track...
  2:05pm KP:

Who's this covering this johnny Cash classic?
  2:05pm Mike East:

he said crown of poop, FCC. for real.
  2:07pm DeutsChe pat:

this time I'm right on board with Julie, don't like NIN but love the Cash version.
  2:08pm KP:

The real thing! Thanks!
  2:08pm Ken:

I wanna give Julie her own radio show!
  2:09pm common:

about to cry at work.
  2:10pm efff:

You're so right. This crushes the original
  2:10pm northguineahills:

I love playing originals w/ covers while dj'ing, not sure if the crowd enjoys it as much as I do.... awesomeness.

I concur w/ efff.
  2:11pm Rob-ATL:

Johnny Cash has better songs but Trent probably looks better in torn fishnets.
  2:11pm StuBot:

KP: the nine inch nails version IS THE ORIGINAL: see how a cover lor a remake of a movie can be mistaken for the original if its sucessful in pop culture?
  2:11pm chris:

Totally second that, Ken! And Diane deserves a medal for bringing her on! Thank you, Diane!
  2:12pm DeutsChe pat:

Sign her up Ken!
  2:14pm Cheri Pi:

Never cared about Nirvana either, and I'm from Seattle...
  2:14pm some other guy:

I totally own that Tori Amos CD. There. I said it.
  2:15pm DeutsChe pat:

I'm about to start drinking beer soon as Germany v Italy match starts.....
  2:15pm Cheri Pi:

  2:16pm DeutsChe pat:

not a big Nirvana guy either but I remember thinking this was a breath of fresh air when regular radio stations started playing it.
  2:16pm DeutsChe pat:

  2:16pm dinatekno:

I love NiN, love Nirvana AND love Johnny Cash. NEVER got into Tori Amos. But then, I was able to see them ALL live. That's the beauty of being OLD!! LOL!!!!
  2:17pm StuBot:

Thank you. Some people here in this discussion won't agree though. Music is subjective, its ART, and as a musician and an artist, I have respect for all art, some I find questionable, but there's an audience for everytthing...as I now exit through the gift shop...
  2:17pm Dave B:

Can you play the Richard Cheese version of SLTS?
  2:18pm johnnykevlar:

I listen to WFMU to get away from this song
  2:18pm northguineahills:

I have a similar sentiment as dinatekno.
  2:19pm johnnykevlar:

music is not subjective, taste is
  2:19pm fred:

I love Kathleen Hanna's cover of this song.
I wish Julie will play in Paris, France, again. I have fond memories of Made Out of Babies shows. She can get me to go to venues I usually avoid
  2:19pm StuBot:

Nirvana ROCKS. We were robbed when Cobain took his life.more snobbery from the peanut gallery ensues.
  2:19pm johnnykevlar:

i wish this was the uk nirvana ;_;
  2:20pm DeutsChe pat:

some people just can't take other people's opinions, see? Myah, myah...
  2:20pm Cheri Pi:

The opinion police care DCP.
  2:21pm johnnykevlar:

you guys should play 40 covers of "Hey Joe"
  2:21pm DeutsChe pat:

[last comment was said in Edgar G. Robenson's voice by the way]
  2:22pm Cheri Pi:

I vote for the Leaves' version of Hey Joe!
  2:22pm northguineahills:

I think there are 1000s of covers of "Hey Joe"
  2:23pm StuBot:

Sorry Johnnykevlar... Is your name Webster? Yes art is based on the feelings and viewpoint of the artist, and opinions of that art are subjective.
  2:23pm Cheri Pi:

Make my Jimi Hendrix Velvert Turner though.... all thriller no filler.
  2:23pm northguineahills:

ok, this is pure enlightenment! lultz!
  2:23pm common:

yea yea!!!
  2:23pm chris:

Muppets sound better than Amos!
  2:23pm Rodney:

Muppets for the win!
  2:24pm Laura:

Sesame Street?
I think I hear Oscar!
  2:24pm artnews:

what about paul anka?
  2:24pm Tati&Marie:

  2:24pm StuBot:

Muppet Anus? I'm gonna name my band that!
  2:24pm Billy Jam:

"Louie Louie" covers all day everyday for a week
  2:25pm efff:

this is making me giggle at work. pure genius. I hear this made Courtney completely throw another lawsuit
  2:25pm fred:

Eläkeläiset also has a nice version
  2:25pm Laura:

Tori Amos = Tore my anus :)
  2:25pm DeutsChe pat:

yeah that wins..
  2:25pm Pete:

Lo all! :) Covers are sometimes sweetest than original versions... Sure not for sarcastic and ironical girls ;) My props for tonight: Let's dance covered by M.Ward and Satifaction by Cat Power :)
  2:25pm Rob-ATL:

I always thought this was a diverse show before, but wow. Julie takes the cake!
  2:25pm DeutsChe pat:

Black Flag and Sonics version of Louie Louie
  2:26pm StuBot:

I used to call her "Torn Anus"
  2:26pm Pete:

or Like Virgin by Three Majohnas...
  2:27pm DeutsChe pat:

man I like Julie Christmas a whole lot more now. That was fun, thanks!
  2:27pm Mike East:

Devo does my favorite Satisfaction.
  2:28pm StuBot:

Julie, you are awesome, I totally enjoyed ths...need a drummer or album art? :)
  2:28pm fred:

My fave cover ever: Les Reines Prochaines' take on Chris Isaak's Wicked Game
  2:28pm Pete:

let's think about Jane's Addiction covered others... ;)
  2:30pm Natacha:

Play more shows please!!! Come west!
  2:30pm Cheri Pi:

Easy Action covering 10 CC's Not in Love= fave cover ever
  2:30pm StuBot:

I am always attracted to crazy ladies with cutlery.
  2:30pm chris:

What Natacha said!
  2:31pm johnnykevlar:

Nah dude, what you like is subjective. King Crimson is objectively play more complex music than The Troggs. And The Velvet Underground are an objectively more influential band than Grapefruit. I don't mind that some people prefer hotdogs over caviar, they just have bad taste :)
  2:32pm JDELZ:

Sure would be a perfect time for Voivod's astronomy domine...
  2:32pm Cheri Pi:

Hell yes!!!!!!!!! Both bands awesome! ZZ top forever. Mastodon/ZZ Top “Just Got Paid” Split single was nice.
  2:33pm Cheri Pi:

Agreed JDELZ.
  2:33pm northguineahills:

I like caviar w/ my hot dogs....damn, I hungry again...!
  2:33pm Pete:

VU was that hotdog? :D k'mon
  2:33pm Rob-ATL:

I think both Steve Albini and Rick Rubin are obsessed with ZZ Top. That's some props.
  2:34pm Cheri Pi:

Artists don't spend so much time intentionally creating work that ties them to the History of Art so some asshole can come along and say it's all subjective. Fuck that.
  2:35pm Pete:

Not sure about Lou Reed...
  2:41pm DeutsChe pat:

Cheri Pi, right on.
  2:41pm Mike East:

I feel like there's gotta be a place in Brooklyn to get a hot dog with caviar.
  2:43pm Cheri Pi:

Didja get all your swag Mike East? Did the swag-man ring twice?
  2:43pm DeutsChe pat:

ok folks. must watch soccer....thanks DK and Christmas!
  2:45pm northguineahills:

I'm doing the same DeutsChe pat, but I'll still be listening here.....
  2:45pm chris:

I could have sworn that guitar was Roky Erikson.. wow.
  2:46pm mike in sf:

thanks to julie and diane for a great set and interview. lived in nyc for 15 years and caught made out of babies, unsane, jjppc, pigs, and all the other incarnations as often as i could.
  2:46pm johnnykevlar:

lou reed might have been a talent-less hack for the past 30 years, but the records he wrote and played on with the velvets are separate from him and will exist after he dies
  2:48pm StuBot:

Your opinion of their art is totally your viewpoint, yea, some like hot dogs over caviar, and gotta love those who slather their hot dogs with caviar too like awesomme northguineahills. Cheri pi, my opinion of you is snob. Kevlar? Yea sure, its all different, and that's what I love about an eclectic taste in music like the Glen Jones Radio Programme featuring X Ray Burns, you may hate an artist or song, and guess what, I don't give a flying fu@k.
  2:48pm PKNY:

So glad to hear my good friends in the Electric Mess on the radio today!
  2:48pm Mike East:

@Cheri Pi - No! It was some package of baby stuff for my wife. The wait continues.
  2:53pm StuBot:

Some people hate orchestral music and opera. Way too many here at fmu will publicly vent their hate of the beatles... Mozart was a genius and some will call it garbage, "too many notes" so freaking what? Don't like it? Don't listen.
  2:53pm mohawkdave!:

WoW! zero boys!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's been a very long time...!!!
  2:57pm Tom L.:

Thanks Diane for ending on a good tune. Sorry to say that some of your show sounded a bit twee -- J. Christmas included, sorry. Thanks again for a great show as always Diane!
  2:59pm Cheri Pi:

VoIvoD is for lovers!!!!!
  3:00pm JDELZ:

  3:00pm johnnykevlar:

most of mozart's compositions were simple tunes to be played at parties, he is only remembered for his academic compositions. So it makes you realize that there are objective qualties as far as history is concerned. In the future, a lot of pop music of the past century might be forgotten.
  3:00pm StuBot:

Hey if I can accept clicks and pops as some peoples ' music on wfmu, you all can listen to ccr.
  3:44pm dustin:

Hi! its possible to download it somewhere?
