Listener comments!

  9:01pm Matt from Springfield:

The soothing strains of "Klarinettpolka" bring us back!
All Over The MATH! Hi there PGB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm PGB:

First prize for the first pun!
  9:05pm Matt from Springfield:

After all, puns are fun!
Glad to have you back on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm PGB:

@Matt...I heard you loud and clear on Jim Price's Gomper Mirror today. Yeehah!
  9:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah yes, I heard myself on the Jim Price minute! It's not the length, it's how you use it!
  9:11pm Matt from Springfield:

As I've gotten into Flickr, I've noticed the WFMU tag and "WFMUish" category -- Jim Price goes back WAY far with the station, but he has also posted tons of old, historical, classic pics on his Flickr account jimmyboyprice. Very worth taking a look:

  9:14pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings PGB and all the listeners.
  9:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Bienvenidos Richard!
  9:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Mitchell & Webb Sound!
  9:17pm Richard from Venezuela:

Thanks Matt.
  9:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Incidentally...the Nazis had sickles on some of their own symbols as well.
  9:23pm adam:

pgb, where did you find the image for tonights episode? thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm PGB:

Yeesh. I can't remember. I've been collecting "album covers" for my shows for a few years. Isn't there some kind of reverse image lookup service from Google? Anybody know?
  9:26pm Matt from Springfield:

There IS actually...thanks to commenter BadGuyZero, he told me you can drag an image into the Google Images search box and get results! Trying that now...
  9:29pm Matt from Springfield:

You're welcome PGB! And thank YOU for the program!

First canned image result: "Stock Photo - Frustration, Child showing frustration, impatience, etc"
  9:30pm adam:

thanks pgb and matt, and badguyzero... and thanks again matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm PGB:

That's great! A free-to-use image, if I remember.
  9:33pm Matt from Springfield:

My pleasure adam!
  9:38pm Nate:

Hi PGB. With Judy listening in from Somerset, NJ.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm PGB:

Hey, Nate! A strong signal, as always. (Thanks, technology!)
  9:44pm Nate:

We're streaming (flash), actually. I do have an FM radio, but its not hooked up. It's my dad's old KLH monaural set, and the sound is amazing, so I've kept it all these years.
  9:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@Nate: Sounds like a cool radio, although it would be more difficult to listen to the stereo tracks that are broadcast.

THIS also sounds cool, btw.
  9:50pm Ike:

The FM signal can be tricky in Somerset anyway. Mono is definitely clearer than stereo there.
  9:52pm Richard from Venezuela:

My god. This The Cinematic Orchestra's track is mesmerizing.
  9:52pm Ike:

Yeah, I dig this movie music. I wonder if it's ever been used in any actual movie. It should be.
  9:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Ike!
Yes, a whole movie's soundtrack! This is like a symphony with all the different movements and moods.
  9:55pm sudo:

This sort of thing plays me like a fiddle. It sucks having to catch your breath in some crummy popcorn flick just because they got a decent score.
  10:00pm 12539:

Manhatta is a 1921 film:
  10:01pm northguineahills:

Manahatta was the Algonquian word for Manhattan.
  10:01pm Matt from Springfield:

BwwwWHAT! If anything that's what high school is for!
  10:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Practical use of algebra, if anyone asks you:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm PGB:

Thanks, Matt. I can't be certain that NJ removed the Algebra requirement...just a rumor. But the "educator's" reaction to its demise had me really upset.
  10:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Excellent theremin PGB! (I can only assume that's you playing :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm PGB:

Oh yeah.
  10:09pm Matt from Springfield:

@PGB: The worse part is now basic algebra will be considered "too hard" for students to even attempt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm PGB:

So the bank puts a mortgage in front of a NJ grad. Can he/she figure out if the monthly payment is correct? Or did the bank make an error in its favor?
  10:15pm Nate:

Sure he can - there's an app for that.
  10:16pm Matt from Springfield:

"It's simple - no *doubletalk* - whatever you see on the bill, that's what you pay us. Simple as that!"
  10:17pm steve:

i do a ton of math in my work, but its been so long since ive been in school, im not even sure which part of math is algebra. is it equations with equal signs in which you solve for x?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm PGB:

I worked out all my mortgage payments myself (okay, in an Excel workbook), and found a few mistakes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm PGB:

Solving for one or more unknowns...sounds like Algebra. (Or sometimes just defining the relationship between unknowns without necessarily figuring out what they are.)
  10:19pm Nate:

I's people like you who put tape on their gas caps when they take their cars in for service. Positively un-american!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm PGB:

Giving away my secrets, Nate!
  10:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Heavy kazoo!
  10:23pm Destroit:

Hello everyone, so nice to be here.
  10:24pm Nate:

Oof! Sorry! I suppose at that dealership there's a new item on the service interval checklist: "Open fuel door and check for tape on gas cap. If found, remove. Close fuel door".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm PGB:

After I get home, Matt, I'm going to add the link in this playlist to the video. Well done, too. Hello, Destroit!
  10:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Destroit!
And thanks PGB, we love any kind of links at FMU!

Keep on tabulatin', Brenda and friends.
  10:30pm Destroit:

Tom jones related trick that I stole from a comedian: go to a diner with a jukebox...play "what's new pussycat" 8 times, then play any other song, then follow it up with 3 more "what's new pussycats". Pure gold.
  10:31pm northguineahills:

I was in the other room cleaning, but that Jonny Cave Dance track was epic.
  10:31pm Destroit:

Hello Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm PGB:

Now I know where I went wrong. I played it seven times then four times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm PGB:

@northguineahills: Yeah, they told me to "do the cave dance" about a hundred times. I complied.
  10:33pm Destroit:

You're a dj PGB, you should know how to work a room;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm PGB:

I can always learn new tricks!
  10:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Oooh, liking this Ursula 1000.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm PGB:

@Matt: I agree. I'm frugging in the studio.
  10:42pm Destroit:

Me too Matt, totally workin the room. This is great.
  10:56pm Gia:

Now I need to hear some Tom Jones...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm PGB:

@Gia...just a bit late! Sorry!
  10:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Ahh, recycled riff! It's an energetic, powerful riff though, it's a good one to rip!
  10:58pm Gia:

Ok...I meant MORE Tom Jones...or Monkees...or Nesmith...yeah Nesmith....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm PGB:

Dang...I'm moving away from T Jones/Monkees/Nesmith land. Come along!
  11:02pm Destroit:

Acid dance grinder, when in a pinch!
  11:02pm Gia:

Orrrr...Istanbul Not Constantinopal ...you know...because we missed Eid dinner...
  11:04pm Matt from Springfield:

@PGB Well, what are we waiting for!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm PGB:

That's right. Ramadan is over! Double dang.
  11:08pm ALC:

Hey PGB! Loving the show, as is the new Eagle Scout! We made it home to tune in during Tom Jones. He wants to submit music to you for your show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm PGB:

@ALC: Congrats to the new Eagle Scout and his proud father!
  11:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Congrats ALC and new Eagle Scout!
  11:10pm Destroit:

Good stuff PGB.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm PGB:

@Destroit: thanks! The new bin here at the station is a treasure trove.
  11:15pm Destroit:

Big crates = big ideas. That's why FMU is do fun.
  11:16pm ALC:

Thanks, PGB and Matt. (Hey! Mr. Luddite actually figured out how to listen, and comment!)
  11:20pm ALC:

PS - fwiw, I'd guess Emmanuelle's last name would be pronounced "say-nyea."
  11:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Only two things are certain: Paris, and taxes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm PGB:

I need a crowd of folks here in the studio...to coach me on pronunciation.
  11:36pm Matt from Springfield:

LOVE "Ring Ring"! Good choice of cover for Michael to feature.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm PGB:

There's always Irwin's version with the Hoof and Mouth Sinfonia.
  11:37pm Matt from Springfield:

The u-umlaut is made by typing Alt+129 using the little numeric keyboard to the right. Or, just replace "Fur" with my "Für" here ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm PGB:

Oh yeah. The very easier-to-memorize Windows method. Thanks!
  11:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Great Skeptics, slick 60s British invasion sound, like the Zombies.
@PGB No prob!
  11:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry Songbook! YES!

Awwww, it's almost time to go!
  11:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Splitsville, another great 70s cover!
  11:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks PGB! Always enjoy your shows, come back soon!
Have a good night everybody!
  12:00am fxo:
