Good morning, Kens and Losermom!

Great big GIFs! Although I haven't loaded/see them yet am pretty sure they are all mesmerising, hypnotic and/or hilarious.

Talking about DEFCON that reminds me of the Spanish band DEFCON DOS who has a song named "La culpa de todo la tiene Yoko Ono" ('Everything is Yoko Ono's fault'). The funny song even mentions the psychic spoon bender Uri Geller.
  8:32am Listener Robert:

No request this week. Steve now forbids radio in the living room between 10 PM & 10 AM because he MIGHT be trying to sleep. He makes bigger donations to Auricle than I do, so.... But more importantly, he's sick, has trouble sleeping, & I feel bad for him. Temporarily can't stream and WMFU reception in my bedroom's now impossible due to QRM from phone-to-broadband converter.
  8:34am FϻFϻ (:


What a coincidence! I have here with me my condensed list of 234 requests songs. Let's see...

What about something from FAAAAAAUUUUUUSSSSSSTTTTT new album?

Or what about instrumental rock song you used to play hundreds of years ago as a bed music during mic breaks? It's not one of those songs used to close the show (i.e. Baby Animal, Friends of Dean Martinez, Sayonara, etc). But also it's not the White Punks on Dope, nor the classic music one that irritates one listener. The only thing I know about that song is it's one of those perfect songs of yours, Ken!

The are several good song sin that Brown Whornet album. You have played some of them, Ken. If I'm not mistaken the last one you played from them was the one with the fake Spanish lyrics few years ago. Yes. That's how sad my life is that I even know that detail.

Oh, Murakami Whywolf...

You know what I found today by mere chance when searching for the news of the dead of Simon the Gigantic Rabbit? Fox News practices fake news! And they are not ashamed of it.

Let me elaborate: When you search for the news using DuckDuckGo search engine, FoxNews article will come up at the top with the title "Simon the Rabbit shot and killed by United Airlines after ...". But after clicking the link in search results and getting redirected to the article its title changes to "Simon the giant rabbit, destined to be world's biggest, dies on United Airlines flight". Clickbaiting with fake news! FoxNews has the winning formula!

Graham Parker is an excellent suggestion. The 20 year old song dissing Aretha is pretty solid - 'Obsessed With Aretha'

DJ KEN = KMS. Finally found someone who plays my kind of music. Excellent.

Graham Parker (alive) is different that Gram Parsons (not alive). I had them mixed up earlier and I was confused.
  11:42am Cliff (temporarily not) in Prague:

I repeat: LAURICE.
  11:42am FϻFϻ (:

Judging by my Youtube research findings I can confirm you Laurice had a big hit in Mexico in the middle 70's with the song Amaremos Dia y Noche (We Will Make Love).
  11:42am FϻFϻ (:

Laurie Marshal please (aka Laurice)!

So that's two bands I know of with names derived from BARBARELLA—Matmos & Duran Duran. Are there any others?

Banned in the USA as being too gay and too sexy, We Will Make Love topped the US import charts and went on to being released three consecutive times

Mocedades ? on my WFMU? By the way, Irwin produced an outsider's music album where a guy sings this song in English. Everybody trashes him but I think he does a pretty good job sining the song.

thanks Ken, todays show got me all emotional, in a good way.

Indeed, por?!$$&9;. "Eres tu" is a such an eternal classic in the Hispanic world. I think it won the Eurovision back in the 70s?

We Will Make Love (a genuine Tom Moulton 12” disco mix) was a smash in Canada,topped the charts in many Latin American countries, Eurasia and was a smash in Europe

Lau - Law
Rice - as in German Rise. So it's like rice but with strong R

So it is basically as saying Law-Rise

Thanks Ken! Good luck with 7SD tonight, yikes.
