Listener comments!

  12:05am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Good evening, Therese! I hope you're doing ok after the events of the past week.
  12:05am Bob in DC/VA/Wherever:

Welcome back, Therese. Glad you made it through the storm. Long live WFMU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06am Therese:

Heya BGZ & Bob! It's been quite a week, but things have almost normalized....
  12:14am Holly in NC:

Hi Therese, I surely hope you are doing well.
  12:14am Transmitters:

  12:29am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

These Ad Council spots are a bit to the left. *ha!*
  12:29am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Or I have my headphones on backwards.
  12:43am Steve-O:

Hey Therese! Haven't listened to your show in a long while but I thought I'd check in.

So, so glad, you're okay. You're actually one of my favorite DJs on here. =)
  12:43am Steve-O:

@Holly: Hey, Holly. How's it going down in N.C.?
  12:44am Ken From Hyde Park:

Oh boy! Voting commences in 24 hours!
  12:46am Steve-O:

Sally Go Round the Roses.......lovin' this one, Therese! =)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46am Therese:

Hi Holly, Steve-o, Transmitters & Ken! Thanks for stopping by!
  12:47am Steve-O:

@ken: I wanted to register but couldn't make it.....I'm in Texas, btw. Just north of Dallas.
  12:49am Steve-O:

@Therese: No prob. Definitely gonna try to come back here at some point. =)
Avatar 12:51am Flooded Jeep:

I still refuse to start!
  12:52am Holly in NC:

Hi Steve-O! Here inland Durham, all is well. VERY lucky. Thank you for asking. Hope you're (more than) OK ;-)
Therese you are creating a wonderful show - as always, but this especially hitting the spot.
  12:53am Steve-O:

@FJ: LOL. BTW, you an old Jeep or a Chrysler? =p
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53am Therese:

Oh, no! I walked past you today, Jeep and wondered how you were doing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54am Therese:

FJ- Maybe it's because you left your fancy wool hat in the studio?
  12:57am Steve-O:

@Holly: Yep. It's 11:57 in Frisco, TX. It's 57 degrees, calm, clear, and I'm sitting at my computer listening to Therese. I'm just fine. =)
  12:58am Steve-O:

@Therese: Somebody give that Jeep a new engine! =)
  12:58am amEdeo:

I TRIED TO FEED MY HEART FRENCH FRIES... but it is still hungry...
  12:58am Jersey Shore Dweller:

My stomach's kinda hungry too.
  1:01am Elwyn:

  1:03am Holly in NC:

Bruce! I remember buying this 7", & playing over & over. Sigh.
  1:04am seang:

That Mascis cover was hilarious
  1:05am Jersey Shore Dweller:

How was the heart, Holly? Hungry?

Bruce gets a huge state tax break for being a farmer now. SEND FOOD, BIG GUY!
  1:05am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

No squeaky chair in Studio C.
  1:07am Elwyn:

How I faired/fared: Last week was awesome. The girl who I like broke up with her bf. I hated myself when someone asked her out first. Now, I am not sure when the rebound period ends.
I found $20 on the floor of 7-Eleven but no sugar-less slurpees.

Is the Presidential race that close? Are there that many people who want a businessman who strapped his dog to the top of his car to run the country instead of Obama?
  1:08am Elwyn:

PS Hungry Heart should be high on the list of awesomely upbeat sounding songs with super-depressing lyrics.
  1:10am Holly in NC:

I refuse to badmouth Bruce, but I would like to note the wonderful wtf-ness of J Bon Jovi's latter day philanthropy. Who would've ever guessed?
  1:10am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

@Elwyn: Higher than Warren Zevon's "Excitable Boy?"
  1:11am Pundit:

Obama is under 50% in almost every swing state. Incumbents always lose any remaining undecideds by 2-1 or 3-1, because the undecideds mainly have already decided not to vote for the incumbent. They just haven't figured out whether to grit their teeth and roll the dice, or just sit on their hands.

It's not looking that good. I heard the O man telling a crowd in NH, "Don't give up on me!!! I haven't given up!!!!" What a clincher argument!
  1:13am G:

@Elwyn: Like Born in the USA, right? I couldn't figure out what the Reagan 84 re-elect was doing with that one, other than not listening to the words, and assuming no one else did either. Some news that he's suffered from depression for years. It's all over his lyrics, really.
  1:17am Elwyn:

Wouldn't surprise me if Bruce suffered from the D. He's had his share of tough times such as his battle with former manager Mike Appel and not being permitted to record again until Darkness on the Edge of Town.

Then there's the real downer songs here and there on each album:
* Wreck on a HIghway, Drive All Night
* Downbound Train, Glory Days
* Tunnel of Love was one whole song about marriage breakdown

Then there's always his uppers like "Living Proof", "Land of Hope and Dreams"
  1:17am G:


"Fight Growing Over Online Royalties" (NY Times, today)
  1:19am Bob in DC/VA/Wherever:

The election seems to come down to who wins Ohio. And George W. was under 50% in the final polls before he beat Kerry in 2004. Short answer: Ask again in two days!
  1:23am Pundit:

Most polls statistically replicate an electorate/turnout with the same party split from the last similar election, in this case the 2008 POTUS election.

It's really not going to be Dem +8 like 2008 on Tuesday, in Ohio or elsewhere...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25am Therese:

Yeah, for better or worse, it will be over soon enough
  1:26am Pundit:

True dat. Unless something gets messed up and it's lawsuit time. Both sides have already prepared for that, but let's hope it doesn't come to that. Enough already!
  1:27am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

With all the voter fraud/suppression allegations and other assorted shenanigans (suspicious objects outside of polling places...really Florida?) I think there's going to be more finger pointing and calls for recounts than there was in 2000. I'll be surprised if we go to bed on Tuesday knowing who won.
  1:33am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

The Jay Vons on Cherry Blossom Clinic (August 28, 2010): http://freemusicarchive.org/music/The_Jay_Vons/
  1:36am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Is Jersey City still under a 7pm-7am pedestrian curfew?
  1:36am On the Downlow:

Not if you're careful.
  1:47am Marmalade Kitty:

Mondale v Reagan 1984: Minnesota was the only state the democrats won; Mondales home state.. Hard to believe..?!
  1:48am G:

Mondale also got DC :-)
  1:48am Scuttle:

New batch of nyhc so great.. Dont get to see em much in bay area- caught Creem a bit ago though
  2:02am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

I'm transcribing your program on my telegraph machine. Head over to Morsespace. My username is -... .- -.. --. ..- -.-- --.. . .-. ---
  2:03am G:

You telegraphed that one :-)
  2:03am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

You can do it, Therese! (play everything at the right speed, that is)
  2:07am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

There have been numerous UK-released singles that are 45rpm on the a-side and 33rpm on the b-side. Usually the b-side has two songs, hence the slower playback speed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18am Therese:

Hmm. That would explain it. But I still DON'T LIKE IT.
  2:18am Elwyn:

Aww!! I <3 Galaxie 500.
  2:19am Marmalade Kitty:

@G: DC - doesn't count
  2:20am G:

DC thinks so. They think they run the whole country :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25am Therese:

Tell that to the folks with the TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION license plates.
  2:29am G:

MK was talking about the 1984 presidential election. DC has 3 EV's in presidential elections, which is more EV power per capita than a state like NY...
  2:30am Jay/ London:

i have not heard this song in a long time " one night in bangkok "
  2:34am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

You are correct about Anthony Head.

By the way, I miss the dramatic BtVS bed music.
  2:41am G:

They made DC not a state on purpose back 200 years ago. It creates crazy nuts problems to have a federal government ruling a state that in turn has jurisdiction over the federal government that is located inside of it. So DC was made not a state -- it's a non-state federal district, and people who become residents of DC are choosing to be ruled directly by Congress, as they've always been...
  2:43am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

  2:43am Steve-O:

@BGZ: Here's hoping for the best.....a clear Obama win! =)
  2:46am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Willard frightens the hell out of me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57am Therese:

BGZ- the BtVS bed music was fun, but it's too dramatic for every week.
  2:59am Steve-O:

@therese: Enjoyed the show, Therese......thanks!

Have a nice one, 'kay? =)
Avatar 2:59am Flooded Jeep:

Perhaps I'll finally be towed tomorrow. At any rate, beeping the imaginary horn for your great show. Gobama!
  3:01am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

It was fun hearing you react to it.

Great show. Have a great week, Therese! You too Flooded Jeep, Steve-O and everyone else!
  3:07am Steve-O:

@FJ: Good luck my automotive friend. Say hi to the folks in Toledo for me, would ya'?

(It was fun playing along, btw.)

@BGZ: You too.

Have a nice and safe week, everyone. Here's hoping for an Obama victory on Tues. Gobama/Biden 2012........yes, we can! =D
