Listener comments!

  1:00pm kat330:

Hey, Mike! Long time no hear! Will be listening, though, not typing.
  1:05pm ricardo montalban:

Lovely, liively rendition of this Kinks gem! I am sure it's going to be stuck in my head all day
  1:10pm Philo Gristle:

Nice segue from Scots to Ascots.
  1:11pm frenchee:

Magickal Mike Sin! Good to hear you in full MOD mode. This Ascots song is terrific.
  1:12pm frenchee:

I am doing the frug right now. Hard to type while doing so, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do!
  1:14pm Mike Sin:

Hey folks!
  1:20pm Stan:

This track makes me suspect that Robert Pollard is capable of time travel.
  1:20pm Jay/ London:

Hey mike got your email so here I am .. very hot here in London 31c so am looking forward to your cool sounds
  1:36pm Baskerville Rob:

Yo, Mr. Natural! Breadstick here. Stoked by your heavy sunshine! Disco lives forever, don't cha know.
  1:46pm KP:

Are the Mp3 streams struggling? I'm forced to listen to coffee bean music in this Starbucks?
  1:46pm DG:

Mike---acc. to Wikipedia, the Kinks album actually was "improved" in the studio. They fixed some of the music, and the audience is on a tape loop(!)....still doesn't explain why the sound is so awful (I've heard bootlegs that sounded better than the CD). Like the show, & thanks for playing my friend Mike Lynch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Mike Sin:

Hey KP, checking on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Mike Sin:

Hey DG thanks for the heads-up on the Kinks record!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm Mike Sin:

Hey Stan! I don't think Bob Pollard time travels so much as he is everywhere all the time.
  2:06pm Jeff (WFMU tech guy):

KP, Mike:
I'm having no trouble right now listening to the 32K or 128K MP3 streams (well, except that it's harder to listen to the 32K one because it doesn't sound nearly as good). That's in Jersey City via Comcast, which means that the streams are getting out from the station into the world.

There are no red or even amber flags on our big server monitoring board, or the warning emails I'd get it something had come down hard.

And there are 348 listeners currently connected to the 128K stream; if it'd been flaky, that would usually drop off.

KP, any chance there's
something else busted in the network connection you're trying to use? Mobile data or possibly imperfect Starbucks WiFi?
  2:11pm Mike Sin:

Hey Baskerville Rob! Thanks for checking in.
  2:16pm David Shortell:

"The Live Kinks" was such a flop, it's amazing that Reprise kept the LP in print for so long. I bought it brand new in the 1980s!
  2:20pm Andy A:

Them there Dead End Kids had a top ten hit in the UK with their "Have I The Right Cover." And now I need to go outside.
  2:20pm Mike East:

I just discovered a local record store that plays WFMU inside. I don't know how I've missed it all these years.
  2:24pm Baskerville Rob:

Enjoying the show and so is this girl next to me in hot pants. The Go-Go's tune was a nice to hear again.
  2:29pm Joltz:

'The Live Kinks' was recorded in 1967, not 1966. April 1, 1967 to be precise.
  2:44pm mike tp:

MIKE youre playing tunes that grab ya by the seat of your pants n throw you rite crooss the room . very nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Mike Sin:

Hey Mike TP! That's the goal!
  2:58pm Super Duper:

Expected another hour!
  2:58pm Jay/ London:

good show mike thanks
