Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12am Station Mgr Ken:

Morning everybody! Get yer pre-show requests in NOW.
  6:17am jan:

my music desires, stimulated by TV programs are conflicted : do I want to hear musical numbers from those played on Breaking Bad or do I want to hear a selection from the group Journey, just featured on a documentary on PBS?
  8:09am stvn:

Suicide Is Painless, Ken.
  8:11am Robert:

How am I going to keep from being spoiled about :Breaking Bad" for ITS ENTIRE LAST 2 SEASONS until I can afford the DVDs? I think if I can just get past the hubbub for the next couple weeks or so, I can make it unspoiled.
  8:13am Ken:

Hang in there Robert. You have so much to live for.
  8:14am Robert:

I remember when "Suicide Is Painless" was used under the voice for the commercials of a gas appliance dealer on WMCA. But as bleary as I am, I thought stvn suggested "Suicide Is Pointless".
  8:17am Robert:

Really HEAVY material right now on JM in the AM.
  8:21am jan:

@Robert: you can download Breaking Bad. But it's a major time commitment to see the series as I am attempting to do, along with listening to all of the archived Ken programs.
  8:24am Robert:

As long as it's legitimate downloading and I have the software compatible with it, I probably will eventually. Roght now I can download & play MP4s and some other video formats, but can't play video streams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25am maestroso:

I'd repeat last week's requests, but we all know how that turned out...
  8:27am Robert:

I heard so much about the series and wanted to see it but didn't have cable, and then my friend John 2 years ago lent me the season 1 DVDs and I said, "I am soooo that guy", meaning Walter White, except I'm not brilliant like him. A year later John lent me seasons 2 & 3. But now he's moved to So. Car. before getting even season 4.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30am Ken:

Thanks for pledging Maestroso! Which request are you speaking of? Don't worry, I will not be playing a single version of Bohemian Rhapsody. I'm sorry about that.
Avatar 8:30am Okasa:

Good morning Ken. And a fine good morning to all the friendly little Kensters.
  8:32am Robert:

And I see "Better Call Saul" is getting its own show. Say you've been keeping a tiger illegally and it gets out and mauls the meter reader when he comes (totally uninvited, may I add) he gets mauled up pretty bad....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33am maestroso:

Um, I think it was for some Jpop - Zabadak or Yoko Ueno. Probably not heard on FMU yet.
  8:33am stvn:

The last ever IT Crowd episode aired on Friday. Are there any good remixes of the theme tune?
  8:38am Robert:

I've already read a complaint that "Breaking Bad" never did fill in the back story from the season 1 conclusion that promised to explain some more personal revenge motiv'n the lead character had.
  8:40am Robert:

But the best line of at least the 1st 3 seasons wasn't really in the show itself at all, but a meta-line from the DVD-included clips: "Don't hit me with your Emmy."
  8:59am Robert:

Interesting irony going from a song about coming out of Egypt on JM in the AM into "Egypt Chic" on John Allen.
Avatar 8:59am egal:

After Breaking Bad nothing really matters, anyone can see.

If you want to be serious, dc pat, the trouble is that the FCC will some day reopen and look at their backlog of complaints.

Yes, Desperado might have breached the faith we all have in Ken's musical taste :0
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06am maestroso:

I gotta admit, this is the best version ever.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 9:06am Ken From Hyde Park:

Well, it's not "Bohemian Rhapsody," I'll give ya that.

Since we have 2:47 to kill, let's research the subject -
  9:13am jan:

Ken- Many of us listened last week, hoping that the programming would deviate from the opening gambit. It didn't and I was left feeling that I could have used my ears for something more rewarding. So my question to you is: Will this show carry on with only covers of this song? And my follow up question: will your future shows all be devoted to torturous explorations of cover versions of music your audience ordinarily does not listen to?
Avatar 9:14am northguineahills:

Now I need to punch the hippy peruvian guy who plays hotel california w/ guitar and pan pipes on my train platform.

I didn't watch Breaking Bad until late in the 3rd season. It's well done. The ending isn't as great as the critics would say, but it's an ending, if you're into that sort of thing.
