Hi Therese! Hope you enjoyed Mother's Day. =)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08am Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Therese. How was your week? Fine weather, as long as you're pollen tolerant and thus able to get out and enjoy it.
  12:08am JakeGould:

Hello! FWIW, the Mr. Do machine in Jersey City is much nicer than the one in Chelsea.

Avatar 12:19am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I'll have what Sigurður's having - but only 1/2 as much (it's late here)...
- I wish this show was what 'Pop Music' meant in the big mean world outside...
  12:20am JakeGould:

@RR63: The thing is as long as the kids like digging up “vynils” and like the music, there is hope. Actually saw a 12 year old kid get excited at 1980s singles at a flea market this weekend.

i used to love Heavenly back in the Sarah Records days... saw them at a Sarah Christmas gig with the Field Mice, ahhh... Who was that American male voice, I wonder?

Gaylord is thankfully not a creep like Calvin Johnson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36am Therese:

What is the opposite of a creep? Because that's what Gaylord is.
  12:36am JakeGould:

Gaylord is a peerc, tnen? Or maybe a crépe.
  12:37am P-90:

  12:37am JakeGould:

I meant crêpe.

I am trying to be more creepy.
Avatar 12:41am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- deffo a Mensch.
  12:41am sugarwolf:

Not crepey though, I moisturize!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42am Therese:

Your priorities are in order!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45am Gaylord Fields:

Mmmmmm, crêpes!
  12:45am rw:


I've never met GF, only heard him on the radio but I'm going with mensch.

And personally I feel a little more creepy every day.
  12:46am P-90:

I don't like that crepey dry skin. It creeps me out. It's creepy-crepey.
Avatar 12:47am BadGuyZero:

Is it ok if I wake my neighbors up singing along to "Heartbreak Beat?"
Avatar 12:48am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

mm crêpes
  12:49am rw:

BGZ, It's okay. They'd do the same for you.
  12:49am P-90:

I hope it's ok. I woke mine up singing along to "Stobe Light."

Two weeks ago, I met Richard Butler at a party full of neuroscientists. That's all I care to reveal.
  12:55am P-90:

"The opposite of a creep", the most flattering phrase to describe someone that contains the word "creep."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57am Gaylord Fields:

@Therese: It's like you're channeling Terre! I can't help but smile right now!
  1:00am rw:

Okay, it's my turn to wake the neighbors singing along to See No Evil.
Avatar 1:01am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Dammit - I want to have been in Television making this music & on this album. Is that so much to ask from the stupid Universe??
Avatar 1:04am ottovonbqe:

It used to be the same at Mona's on Ave B. Marquee Moon at least once a night.
  1:05am Steve-O:

Hey Gaylord! Long time no see. =)

Grady grew “wild parsley” for a salad he made for the cops on Sanford and Son.
  1:10am P-90:

It used to be a that a jukebox contained a couple hundred records. Your choices were limited, a bar's personality was partly defined by what was on the box. Now most places have Internet boxes, it's not the same.
  1:11am JakeGould:

Folks, not making crêpes at 1:00am. Just eat a plate of fries like normal people.

"onager" is a name for the asiatic wild ass

@P-90: And you could listen to 10 songs for a nickel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12am Gaylord Fields:

I wish WFMU had its own station onager! I would hug it and love it and pet it and feed it and...
  1:13am P-90:

Just the other day my five year old nephew was saying he wants to be the ownager of a TV station when he grows up.
  1:14am sugarwolf:

@ottovonbqe: ha! The one time I was at Mona's our British guest played MM on the jukebox
  1:14am JakeGould:

I liked the Little Rascals episode where Stymie became the ownager of a local donkey.
  1:17am JakeGould:

I am Elmer J. Fudd… Millionaire… I ownager a mansion and a yacht.
  1:19am P-90:

Not to be confused with "onanist", something else entirely.
Avatar 1:52am BadGuyZero:

♫♫ He's got an ownager urge! ♫♫

Does Clay Pigeon like Devo? He likes Zebra.

"The Devo Barrier"
Avatar 2:06am BadGuyZero:

I literatlly sprayed seltzer water out of my mouth when you mentioned the roller skating.
Avatar 2:07am BadGuyZero:

BLERG! literatlly = literally
Avatar 2:10am BadGuyZero:

The Devo Barrier is the sequel to Super Breakout.
  2:11am JakeGould:

Therese, that roller skating in the apartment is pretty hardcore. Mayes me want to practice tuba in my place. And I don’t even know how to play tuba.
  2:12am P-90:

Proof of the D-Barrier would support the validity of the Quantum Inseparabilty Principle (QuIP).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13am Therese:

Go for the Sousaphone- that adds the marching band element.
  2:13am JakeGould:

“The Devo Barrier” is a staright to DVD film with Sam Neill. He passes through the Devo barrier and all he can see is satan and Booji boy at his knee.
  2:14am JakeGould:

I’m thinking of being Chuck Mangione next Halloween. That flugelhorn made him feel so good, so why not me?
Avatar 2:15am BadGuyZero:

Recurring theme in tonight's show: give Sacred Bones all your money.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16am please delete all of my posts:

hi Therese and innocent victims
  2:17am JakeGould:

Why should we delete all of your posts? Getting married?
  2:18am Jorge:

Thanks a lot for playing Honey Bucket therese, you are making this warm kinda annoying morning here in Barcelona way more cooler and refreshing.

Hi coel!

Ha! good; no i'm a little drunk and expect to say something stupid.

Hi P-90!

  2:21am JakeGould:

Flugelhorn, P-90.
  2:26am JakeGould:

I meant, flugelhorn, coelacanth.

hmmm. May i be offended tomorrow?
Avatar 2:28am BadGuyZero:

Ooh...this Quiet Lights track is lovely!
  2:30am P-90:

Have you considered being Chuck's brother, Gap Mangione, for Halloween? You're gonna see other Chucks out there trick-or-treating, but Gap is more esoteric, you could work with Gap and really make him your own.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33am mitre mangione:

you insult my people.
  2:39am JakeGould:

Mind the “Gap”, P-90. Chuck Mangione 4 ever.
  2:40am JakeGould:

Someone should start a “Skirt Shed” to revive the “Dress Barn” aesthetic for modern tastes.
  2:41am rw:

Weird. I know nobody cares, but I received an email ad from Metal Postcard about three seconds before Therese said the words, "Metal Postcard".

Dress Barn sounds like an unappealing place to shop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41am coelacanth:

you need a dress for that ho-down next week.
Avatar 2:42am BadGuyZero:

Hedwig was physically assaulted at a Dress Barn. That was the explanation given for why Hedwig was wearing a leg brace during the final weeks of John Cameron Mitchell's most recent run as Hedwig.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43am coelacanth:

i shop at lederhosen shack.
  2:43am JakeGould:

The one “Dress Barn” in Brooklyn is right around the corner from where the old, main Crazy Eddie’s HQ once was. goo.gl...
  2:43am JakeGould:

What about “Pants Palace?” Or “Shorts Shack?”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44am Therese:

My cousin Tommy used to work at the Crazy Eddie near the Willowbrook Mall.
  2:45am P-90:

The same company used to own the discount undergarment chain "Freudian Slips", also in the nicer malls. The V. Secret website put them out of business.

What time does Chess King open in the morning?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46am Therese:

Wow! Chess King, for all your Z. Cavaricci needs!
  2:46am Nadine the Cowbell Player:

Haha, it looked fancy from the outside.
  2:47am P-90:

Not to be confused with "Cheese King."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48am coelacanth:

the crazy eddie on rt 22 in union used to have a killer record dep't. $3.64 for most albums in the 80s,if i remember correctly.
  2:49am JakeGould:

Chess King: 1988 mall culture in effect. Going to get an Orange Julius, stare at knives at the knife store then play Galaga and then check out Spencer Gifts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50am coelacanth:

fuck victoria's secret! i should design womens' apparel,i should!
  2:50am JakeGould:

Crazy Eddie’s generally had a decent record department. All of the gear that falls off of the truck needs something to pad the carton. Why not tons of cut out albums?
  2:51am JakeGould:

@P-90: There is a Freudian Slip shop in Oregon. www.shopfreudianslip.com
  2:55am Nadine the Cowbell Player:

Wow! How can this be true???
Avatar 2:57am BadGuyZero:

If I recall correctly that "Archie Bunker's Place" finale only aired on the East Coast. There was such an immediate uproar that it was pulled before it could air on the West Coast.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00am coelacanth:

in the early 80s i went to crazy eddie's record dep't. and there was the guy i'd seen the prior weekend acting like a lunatic & smashing a watermelon over his head at the dirt club and he was embarrassed & said it was just a job meanwhile i thought his group was pretty rad anyway he copped an attitude forever so fuck him.
