Good Morning, T !
Avatar 12:05am BadGuyZero:

I'm so excited that we'll get to keep starting Mondays off with you until next summer (if not longer)!
  12:08am rw:

Therese! I was just thinking about Van Halen 30 seconds before you opened the show. You think that means something?
Avatar 12:13am BadGuyZero:

This is like an alternate "Dazed & Confused" soundtrack!
  12:13am Greg from ZONE 5:

Hey T-Mobile! I'm still awake for some reason!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19am pacific standard simon:

This CCR is such an awesomely perfect song.
  12:20am P-90:

CCR is indeed awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21am pacific standard simon:

It's rock, and it's a ballad; it's Harry Chapin, and it isn't.
  12:22am JakeGould:

Pretty ballsy move with that Van Halen from “Women and Children First.” What a cruddy album that has a few moments of hope.
  12:25am JakeGould:

@Greg from ZONE 5: Be careful when you say T-Mobile… You might beckon that company’s odd CEO who dresses like a cool/sad uncle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28am Tome:

HI Therese and to many of my friends and all a Happy New year to you too !

I don't remember the name of the author or the title of the book, but I remember it had a blue cover.

Cool mixing of old and new songs tonight.

Van was clearly a red diaper baby.
  12:33am MONEYBAG$:

this 6ths album was the summer jam of 1995

Would you like a piece of my tangerine?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37am Bronwyn Bishop:

Van Dyke!!! The best Van!!! I was hoping you'd get to him!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37am Bronwyn Bishop:

I was literally just thinking this afternoon about how I'd never heard any VDP on WFMU...
Avatar 12:38am BadGuyZero:

I always liked when people would come in looking for music by bands that had a name that sounded like a person's name (Matt Bianco and Franz Ferdinand for example) and would be baffled when it wasn't filed under the last name.
  12:38am MONEYBAG$:

now that i think of it, we definitely employed many people who would have filed van morrison after van halen
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38am pacific standard simon:

Where's the Jethro Tull?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39am pacific standard simon:

Van Dyke Parks has definitely been played a lot on FMU -- you just have to look for the usual suspects.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40am Bronwyn Bishop:

Yeah- I haven't been listening for that long, though, comparatively.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40am pacific standard simon:

I thought this was Neu! at first.
  12:40am rw:

BGZ, I remember Led Zeppelin got that a lot in the '70s.
  12:43am rw:

And that reminds me, my friend Erik went into the record store and asked the clerk if they had that song that goes, "Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43am pacific standard simon:

@rw - that's probably because there were a lot of kids who never heard them referred to by their full name -- it was always "Zeppelin!" and "Stones!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44am pacific standard simon:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45am Bronwyn Bishop:

This is awesome
Avatar 12:45am BadGuyZero:

I was manager of the music and video departments at a few Borders locations. At one store the music department had this weird L-shape that was caused by a stock room. People would come up to the info desk asking why pop/rock ended in the middle of the Rs. The Rs continued around the corner, but they generally didn't look around.

Some of the people that shopped for classical music were very particular. One guy came up and had a fit because things weren't filed on the shelf by some catalogue number classification that only diehard classical music people know about. He ended up telling the store's general manager that I was rude to him. I asked if the guy had been crying. "If he wasn't crying I wasn't rude to him."
  12:45am rw:

pss, no, I mean people thought Led Zeppelin was a person.
  12:45am MONEYBAG$:

my mom took me into a record store and hummed kashmir to the guy at the counter when I was 14
  12:48am MONEYBAG$:

classical people were the worst...they would just call and spit out some catalogue number from the swann cd guide, like you immediately knew what they were talking about
  12:49am rw:

MONEYBAG$, your mom sounds awesome. Did the guy at the counter know the song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50am pacific standard simon:

@rw - Well, Darwin weeded out those dullards, maybe.
  12:50am MONEYBAG$:

we left with led zeppelin III, so that should tell you the quality of the store
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52am pacific standard simon:

@ BadGuyZero - I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.
  12:53am MONEYBAG$:

my favorite moment on the other end was when this straight laced guy uncomfortably asked if I knew a song with the refrain, "I love the cocaine, I love the cocaine". but i did know it was buckcherry. under B, not C

I just learned that Rico, the Jamaican trombone player, died recently. Sad face.
Avatar 1:02am BadGuyZero:

Squeaky Chair!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02am pacific standard simon:

Feelin' groovy, Therese?
  1:11am rw:

My chair is stable and more or less comfortable but my dog likes to sit underneath and sometimes I accidentally roll over him which makes him yelp but doesn't make him move. There's a nice comfortable pillow for him three feet away. It's adding unnecessary stress to my life. I think I'm going to try moving the pillow a little closer...
  1:11am Bob in DC and/or Virginia:

Yay! So glad we get to keep you, Therese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12am pacific standard simon:

Not as many changes on this schedule as I usually expect. Wish certain DJs were returning, or at least joining an alternate stream.
  1:13am JakeGould:

@rw: Have you considered counseling? Counseling for your dog?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13am pacific standard simon:

@rw - try eating more beans -- that should convince the dog.
Avatar 1:16am BadGuyZero:

Have you tried leaving treats on the pillow?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17am pacific standard simon:

Actually kind of interested in Johnny's new book. Curious to see if time has mellowed his punk rhetoric. From the sound of his lyrics, I'd say the chances are good.
  1:18am rw:

Moving the pillow seems to have worked, at least temporarily. It's like a weight's been lifted from my shoulders!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23am pacific standard simon:

Quit draping the dog over your shoulders!
  1:34am JakeGould:

Dogs aren’t throw pillows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43am pacific standard simon:

Hm. Before the voice came in, this sounded like Nick Drake. Interesting comparison.
  1:47am rw:

Therese, your spontaneously generated show is sounding great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50am pacific standard simon:

Have you ever tried playing a set of only records from one label? Has any DJ? I guess that, even now, that might raise the old specters of payola.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51am pacific standard simon:

I'd be concerned if the hamster was driving.
  1:51am Steve-O:

Hi Therese.....I have ADD too, so I know how a lot of this stuff feels.
Avatar 1:53am BadGuyZero:

Robert Fripp has taken control of the FMU transmitter.

It would be way cooler if the "skipping CD" effect got stuck on a George Carlin track.

There was a guy in Cleveland who passed away a couple of years. He noted in his will that he wanted the Browns to send several players to act as pallbearers so that the team could let him down one final time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57am pacific standard simon:

Until it doesn't. That's the lesson of entropy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59am pacific standard simon:

Again, BGZ, I admire your broadsheet publishing.
  2:00am JakeGould:

Therese, the thing about cute animal videos is if this cute dog nodding off was a human on a heroin nod? Not so cute. youtu.be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03am pacific standard simon:

I'm not sure that that video is cute as a dog. As an elder dog owner, I find it a little worrisome.

My Knott's Berry Farm Innit?
  2:22am JakeGould:

“Knott’s Berry Farm” actually was a berry farm at one point. And it didn’t refer to any skin tags or hemorrhoids that Don Knotts ever had.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27am pacific standard simon:

You say Polāko, I say Polăko.

And, yes, it did take me that long to work out that joke.

I remember having Knott's Berry Farm Preserves when I was a kid, and visiting the place after it became an amusement park.

Is Springsteen's "Spanish Johnny" any relation to Jonathan Richman's "Hippy Johnny"?
Avatar 2:36am tonyb:

not philly..sorry.

  2:36am JakeGould:

Wonder if they are related to Stagger/Stacka/Stagga Lee.
