Avatar 12:10pm Hoboken Jack:

Howdy Ken!
  12:11pm Fashion Tashjian:

Good afternoon Joe & co. I think this is my first time checking in in years to this program, but a spate of late working from home allows such. Killer start so far, love from Yerevan.
Avatar 12:16pm northguineahills:

Hank's Saloon was my dig forever, miss that place (now I'm no longer local).
Avatar 12:18pm Joe B:

greetings all, thanks for tuning in today!
Avatar 12:19pm Joe B:

  12:22pm Tim from LH:

Tokyo Bay! Performed in Jersey City twice in the span of 5 months!
Avatar 12:23pm CTEmpress:

Thanks Joe: I have that show on my calendar fo sho! Love 1800Band! And thanks for the non-stop killer tunes!!
  12:26pm Chris M. Junior:

Thanks for playing "Tokyo Bay" -- almost forgot that one came out in early 2018.
Avatar 12:27pm CTEmpress:

Good video for Tokyo Bay too
Avatar 12:31pm DonJuanTijuana:

Super great PT#2 of today's POW, POW....TOPT in the AM, @JoeB in the PM

Greets, Jack. Happy Monday!
Avatar 12:34pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

I don't care what Shatner says, Belock is a punk!
Avatar 12:34pm Ambassador Feelgood:

I'm shaking the dust off this sorry-ass year and looking forward to what comes next. Great to see you at YLT Hanukkah, Joe! All the best to us in 2019!
Avatar 12:36pm northguineahills:

2018 the best year in the last 5, looking forward to 2019 being better....
Avatar 12:38pm Joe B:

2019 already shaping up to be great -- new albums from daddy longlegs, the rubinoos and others already in the pipeline
Avatar 12:39pm northguineahills:

(and that includes the political situation and me being severely ill for 3 months, aun asi, un gran ano!)
  12:45pm Morphe:

Thanks Joe... Just tuned in. Are you not in next week? For the rest: my mission this week is to get everyone to read about a "band?" called "THREATIN>>" to sadly funny BBC, Rolling Stone and elsewhere (good photos on both sites....
Avatar 12:52pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Ron's dad is hilarious.

Hey Kool-Aid!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

Joe, I use your 2018 best of playlist to create my own 2018 best of playlist. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
Avatar 12:58pm Joe B:

i'm sure we have some overlap!
  12:58pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

Happy Holidays Joe—loving the ‘18 recap & look forward to its inevitable & needed part 2. Anyway, hear ya on the other side of the new year.
  12:59pm V Priceless:

JB! Hey!
  1:14pm Morphe:

Lovely sound .. thought it from long ago!
Avatar 1:15pm Hackensack Slim:

Hey Joe,
Thanks for another fantastic year of the Three Chord Monte program. Happy Christmas to you and yours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm tim from champaign:

I've been enjoying this Fascinations Grand Chorus quite a bit. A nice Blondie style update.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm Krys O.:

Hey, Hoboken Jack. I met Lori (sp?) at a Bloomfield charity event on Friday night and she mentioned she was a friend of yours.
  1:18pm heyitschris:

This Music City track is probably my favorite of the year. Hoping for a full length or even an EP soon.
Avatar 1:18pm CTEmpress:

@heyitschris: gorgeous ain't it? This set is dreamy!
Avatar 1:18pm Joe McG:

I'm with heyitschris on this one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm heyitschris:

@CtEmpress It is. These year-end shows give me a chance to catch up on what I've missed. Thanks Joe!
Avatar 1:22pm Joe B:

thanks Chris. Looking forward to nate k's tomorrow night to see what i missed!
Avatar 1:24pm northguineahills:

Although from the South, I spent many summers/xmases at my cousins at West Milford as a kid....
Avatar 1:25pm Joe B:

was about to make a joke about jungle habitat but that was new milford, not west milford, i think
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Bill in W.O.:

Great set, but the whole show's been great. Thanks for 2018, Joe. I'm a faithful listener every Monday, but that surprise Thursday midnight show you did the night of the snowstorm saved my sanity while I was stuck in I-280 hell, and I'll never forget it. Cheers, and Happy 2019!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm GeorgeSimian:

Love some Wreckless Eric! This is a great one.
  1:30pm Bluesman:

@Bill in W.O., I guess we could say Joe Belock is a PEOPLE PLEASER!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm Bill in W.O.:

@Bluesman - ain't no guess about it!
Avatar 1:32pm Joe B:

apparently jungle habitat was in west milford!
  1:35pm Bluesman:

Eric has been amazingly consistent in his last bunch of record releases.
  1:35pm Johnzon:

i like that one..." i just sold my bass guitar... they moved everyone out to the edge of town where the busses run but nobody knows where they are"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm GeorgeSimian:

I've seen him a few times in concert too. Always delivers.
Avatar 1:39pm Joe B:

Bluesman, i agree. the shows and records the last 8 or 10 years have just been fantastic
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39pm Parq:

Eric played the last Record Fair, and did that number, along with a few more from the new album. To tell the truth, I liked his stripped-down performances of the songs better than the heavily produced album versions. Just IMO.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm GeorgeSimian:

I don't know. I was digging that horn section. And I usually hate that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm GeorgeSimian:

Horn sections always remind me of the Mike Cotton Sound, which mucked up some great Kinks records.
Avatar 1:46pm KP in DC:

Least likely subject for a song ever
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm tim from champaign:

Oh wow! This is an excellent cover.
Avatar 1:54pm growlroo:

Wow. That was some DOA cover. Sucked the life right out of the song.
  1:55pm Morphe:

Most melodic "CLASS WAR" song I've ever experienced ... Hopefully, should it ever come down, it will be peaceful... Tim - what is the original???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm tim from champaign:

@Morphe - It's a Dils cover. Originally from late 70s. I'd highly recommend checking out the Dils if you are unfamiliar. Two other great Dils songs are You're Not Blank and I Hate The Rich. Great melodies underneath some great slapdash punk playing.
Avatar 1:57pm Joe B:

doa? you have the wrong song. by the dils
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58pm tim from champaign:

Which reindeer knows Morse code?
Avatar 1:59pm northguineahills:

Can't clicky-star anything, they're already clicky-starred!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm tim from champaign:

Avatar 2:02pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Yeah, but you got the Run Hide Fight band.
Avatar 2:03pm growlroo:

You're right Joe. I forgot that DOA's version was a cover of the Dils song.
Avatar 2:03pm Joe B:

was that on war on 45?
  2:03pm Morphe:

Thanks Tim - byb- my name is also Tim...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm tim from champaign:

Hiya Tim Morphe!
  2:07pm Tom from Annapolis:

Joe - Don't forget the Screaming Females' great 2018 release.
Avatar 2:08pm Joe B:

thanks for the reminder tom!
Avatar 2:15pm growlroo:

Yep. A great DOA record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Michael 98145:

echoing those Dils recommendations -
  2:31pm Tim from LH:

This Sloan album might be THE best record of the year, I couldn’t stop listening to it.
Avatar 2:33pm CTEmpress:

Sunshine & The Rain: genuinely talented, nice and innovative! Love them!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm GeorgeSimian:

Is this a cover?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm Tommy in Neversink:

I can always count on your show being consistently awesome Joe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm GeorgeSimian:

Love it
  2:37pm lilmaloulou:

good clam
Avatar 2:38pm growlroo:

Gonna have to get that Screaming Females and GBV release. Great stuff
Avatar 2:39pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

James Hunter Six at White Eagle Hall in Jersey City on January 23rd!
  2:39pm Bluesman:

Methinks I have some record buying catching up to do. Vinyl, CD and cash contributions are welcome!
Avatar 2:40pm CTEmpress:

Oh yeah The James Hunter Six kills! And Shannon and The Clams. Thanks @Todd-o-phonic Todd marked on the calendar! Any other bookings we should be noting?
Avatar 2:44pm northguineahills:

It wouldn't be Joe B or WFMU w/o questionable segues!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Michael 98145:

@ngh, another excellent billboard logo!
Avatar 2:49pm northguineahills:

@Michael: tesekkur ederim!
Avatar 2:51pm Joe B:

there will definitely be a part 2 -- plenty of great 2018 material we didn't get to today
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Krys O.:

Thanks, Joe B. for all your hard work. Best wishes for 2019!
Avatar 2:53pm Joe B:

thanks Krys and thanks everyone for tuning in!
  2:54pm Mark in Toronto:

This My Underground song is really good. Who are the Crack Pipes? Where are they from?
Avatar 2:54pm V Priceless:

Stan The Man and King Kirby shout-outs! Thanks for all your great work, Joe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Michael 98145:

yes. thanks again, Joe B. ♫

got the Doctor Who on the VHS
Avatar 2:54pm northguineahills:

I'm a simple man, I clicky star whenever I hear the words miles davis and/or john coltrane.

May your holidays be bright, and enjoy the new year Joe!
Avatar 2:55pm Hackensack Slim:

Any suggestions on local NY/NJ stores to get some of these great 2018 releases.
