ORANGE Rock! We are AGENTS of the free!

Hi Therese and everyone! Always, Remember...
  12:12am Steve-O:

Hi, Therese! Loved that you started out with Laura Cantrell's cover of "Love Vigilantes", btw; I love that song and I've always liked Laura Cantrell-what wonderful combo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13am Scraps deSelby:

I like the Donovan album title, too. Now I can't pronounce it anymore. It comes out like "Arglebargle"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13am Matt from Springfield:

That song was pre-Starred for me! I think it was also from a previous Memorial Day show.
Avatar 12:16am ! I X Key !:

We are soundshelling out from an apron's large pocket! Whom does everyone take their hat for? The barber! I also take mine off for the gods of making fresh pasta (flour flying everywhere)!
  12:16am MONEYBAG$:

funny you should play this... about an hour ago I was contemplating a time when Lester Bangs was writing about Bob Seger as a serious artist and not a beer commercial soundtrack

Funny how this song just sounds like a rock song these days. Metal now is so much harsher.
  12:25am matt:

Metal stinks, maiden rule

I agree with half of those sentiments

With a name like that you gotta take advantage of it! :D
Avatar 1:51am geezerette:

She's NOT our mom?

If a giant dog is your guest you need big biscuits. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54am Matt from Springfield:

@geezerette 1: Love her way about words, the titles just write themselves!!

2: Or one very large biscuit, almost like a prop. A dog food company could do a photoshoot with a big St. Bernard or something, grasping a huge biscuit!

Good night/morning Therese and east coasters.
Avatar 1:55am Jeff:

So funny you busted out a song from Upstairs at Eric's. I was having an impromptu Yaz[oo] listening festival here last week.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55am Matt from Springfield:

Peace out, geezerette! Enjoy the week!

@Matt: I can totally see that. :)
G'night to you too till next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58am Therese:

Jeff! Are you outside now?
  1:59am Jeff Conklin Forgot His Keys:

Yes. No rush. Sorry. Hi all. Sorry for the 20'minute prog jam There's has to play to let me in.
  1:59am Chris:

God Damn if Therese isn't one of the best DJs on WFMU. Maiden AND Game Theory on the same show who else plays those two on the same show?
Avatar 1:59am Jeff:

Hell no. Inside at home out of the rains.
Avatar 2:00am Jeff:

Oh, other Jeff. Never mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00am Therese:

Hang on....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01am Scraps deSelby:

I was just reading about Scott Miller and I didn't know what he died from, except he was 52 (I think) and I was shocked. But several years went by and I (we, his fans) didn't know. And I discovered why in Wikipedia. Suicide. Dammit. He was so good.
Avatar 2:04am ! I X Key !:

! Hooray on letting into the place place (o:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09am Matt from Springfield:

Home "haircuts" won't go well, but home bang-trimmings can be very effective, if handled properly. A good touch-up between haircuts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17am Scraps deSelby:

(Scott Miller was the singer/songwriter of Game Theory, and later the Loud Family.)

OOOOOH! Classic Stax soul sound!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54am Matt from Springfield:

And we come full circle! :)
  2:56am Steve-O:

Yeah! Now we've got the original "Love Vigilantes" playing. Thank you, Therese! First heard this song on KKXT(what may be D/FW's best known indie station), in August of last year and it's been a favorite of mine ever since. =)
  2:57am Steve-O:

@Matt: We sure have come full circle, haven't we? And see, this is just one more reason why I love listening to Therese every Sunday/Monday.....=D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57am Matt from Springfield:

@Steve-O: Iron & Wine's version for me - astounded that it was originally a New Order song, even more so the first time I heard this version and realized what it was!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58am Matt from Springfield:

And...full circle we'll return next week! :)
Thanks Therese, have a good night and good week everyone! :D
  2:58am Steve-O:

@Matt: Iron & Wine's version is great, too. =)
  2:59am Steve-O:

Well, alright fellas. It's been fun hanging out with you guys.....have a wonderful week, y'all, and see ya 'round! =)
