Hi Rich! Hi MB!

Hi Domenic!
Avatar 2:02pm worldsworstrecords:

Thanks for another great show, Jan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm Jan Turkenburg:

This is one of my favorites! We always played that in my band Steppin Stone Visit in Belgium. I can hear the late Duncan singing along.
Avatar 2:03pm worldsworstrecords:

the 1,000th track is coming up later. Any ideas who that might be from?
Avatar 2:03pm worldsworstrecords:

Glad to oblige Jan!
Avatar 2:05pm Martinibomb:

1000?!!I didn't realize u we're keeping track. No idea what you are going play
Avatar 2:06pm worldsworstrecords:

Yep: I have a spreadsheet with all of the tracks on I have played, so that i don't repeat myself too often
Avatar 2:06pm Domenic:

Trying to work *and* listen ;')
Avatar 2:07pm worldsworstrecords:

I'll give you a clue: she looms very large in my legend
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Rich in Washington:

Oh man. It's about time Ringo ended up here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Rich in Washington:

I've long had a dream of forming a Beatles tribute band that only plays Ringo songs. We'd be called The Dungbeatles.
Avatar 2:08pm worldsworstrecords:

hahaha!
Avatar 2:08pm Martinibomb:

I am impressed RRC I am like the opposite Heh I don't keep track. I know I repeat a few tracks I love but for the most part I don't repeat myself much
Avatar 2:09pm Martinibomb:

I wanna play in the dungbeatles
Avatar 2:10pm worldsworstrecords:

That was some guitar solo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Rich in Washington:

this is epic!
  2:12pm Listener Robert:

Missed the first two numbers today. Last week I had to quit before quite reaching the end of Mr. Miller, it was that bad. I mean, I COME HERE FOR THE WORST, and I STILL couldn't take that one.
Avatar 2:13pm worldsworstrecords:

hahaha! Thanks Robert: that's quite a compliment!
Avatar 2:16pm Dominick:

YAY! Sam!
Avatar 2:17pm worldsworstrecords:

I love Sam so much
  2:17pm Listener Robert:

I lived here with Listener Steve (a longer-time WFMU listener than even me, since I go back only to 1980) until his stroke, and we used to see who could stand some of the more, uh, "challenging" pieces Fabio or Bryce or whoever would play, and I could usually outlast him. So for me to have to turn off Mr. Miller, even just barely short of the fast track, is indeed quite a testament to unlistenability.
Avatar 2:19pm worldsworstrecords:

I am deeply humbled :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Rich in Washington:

I love Mrs. Miller because she reminds me of both my maternal grandmother and also my wife's maternal grandmother, who would spontaneously break into warbly, tremulous singing.
Avatar 2:20pm worldsworstrecords:

I would love grandparents like that Rich
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm Rich in Washington:

I found a bootleg copy of this recently. It made my day.
Avatar 2:24pm worldsworstrecords:

I've only got the pirate CD
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Rich in Washington:

That's what mine is. I'm not picky about formats. I think an actual LP of this is going for a mint.
Avatar 2:26pm worldsworstrecords:

yes, and the 45s that are not include on the album are around $200 a piece
Avatar 2:26pm Martinibomb:

Peter is the BEST singing actor
Avatar 2:27pm worldsworstrecords:

This is such a wonderfully mad album
Avatar 2:28pm worldsworstrecords:

next song is number 999...
  2:29pm Listener Robert:

"Lost" was connected in a couple of ways to Peter Wyngard3. First, the plot was largely based on that of episodes of "Department S" that he starred in. Second, the plot was also based on a Marvel Comics character based on him: Mastermind.
Avatar 2:29pm worldsworstrecords:

I did not know that, Robert
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Rich in Washington:

oh dear god. no.
Avatar 2:30pm recordrouletteclub:

Hi everybody!!

That SAM SACKS track looks amazing. Missed it. Might have to go back and catch it on the archives..
  2:31pm Listener Robert:

It seems that outside the makers of "Lost" (including my friend's son Damon, who ran the show), I'm the only one who knows what "Lost" was really about, and even I haven't nailed down the last details, Damon made it so hard!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm Rich in Washington:

There's a great bit in Bobcat Goldthwait's film God Bless America that takes on the then-recent mass public consumption of 'bad' music.
Avatar 2:32pm worldsworstrecords:

Hey RRC! Welcome!
Avatar 2:33pm Martinibomb:

I've never watched Lost but I've seen all of Department S/Jason King and the Xmen comics with Mastermind.. Also in the Invisibles by Grant Morrison there is a Jason King character. Now you've got me curious about Lost.
Avatar 2:33pm worldsworstrecords:

I shall try and check that out, Rich
Avatar 2:34pm recordrouletteclub:

So...horribly....FANTASTIQUE!!
Avatar 2:34pm worldsworstrecords:

I've long been a prisoner of my own debice
Avatar 2:34pm worldsworstrecords:

next up it's disc number 1,000!
Avatar 2:34pm Martinibomb:

perfect song to butcher I effing hate this song Lol

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Rich in Washington:

My wife and I loved the FFJ biopic but she could only bear to listen to about 20 seconds of her record.
Avatar 2:37pm recordrouletteclub:

WWR- I love your show!!- RRC
Avatar 2:38pm worldsworstrecords:

She is my Spirit Animal
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm ARB:

Hey ParUbi! Welcome!
Avatar 2:39pm recordrouletteclub:

Reminds me of Charles Foster Kane's wife's singing..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm ARB:

delightful!
Avatar 2:40pm worldsworstrecords:

I believe that's who Welles based her on, RRC
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Rich in Washington:

Oh yes!
  2:41pm Listener Robert:

This cover is BETTER than the original "Whip It".
Avatar 2:41pm recordrouletteclub:

Makes sense, WWR
Avatar 2:42pm worldsworstrecords:

This is genius
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm ParUbi:

They were about 70 for this, it seems
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow, rrc! I had to look that up. I haven't seen that film since I was very young.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Rich in Washington:

God. This is nuts!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm ParUbi:

Hi Darryl!
Avatar 2:43pm recordrouletteclub:

I wrote a paper on Citizen Kane.
Avatar 2:43pm worldsworstrecords:

Such a brilliant, trailblazing film
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hi, I'm back. Have been listening all the way while doing website editing for Radio Focus
Avatar 2:46pm worldsworstrecords:

  2:51pm davefromtoronto:

Avatar 2:52pm worldsworstrecords:

You're welcome Dave - glad you're enjoying it!
  2:53pm davefromtoronto:

Avatar 2:55pm Martinibomb:

I am ready to stream GG's show for her. Thanks for the tunes WWR geaat great show today
Avatar 2:56pm Mr Fab:

“Avant garde a clue,” ha ha!
Avatar 2:56pm worldsworstrecords:

That's your lot, gang! Thanks for keeping me company for the last hour, and I'll see you all next week... same bat-time, same bat-channel
Avatar 2:57pm worldsworstrecords:

You like that, Mr F? I stole it from George Harrison
  2:57pm davefromtoronto:

i'll be back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Rich in Washington:

Wowzers! This is stunningly awful! I love it!
Avatar 2:57pm worldsworstrecords:

Thanks Dave - then I have done my job!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Rich in Washington:

You've done it again, Mr. B!
Avatar 2:57pm Mr Fab:

Gotta say that William Hung was my tipping point, and I usually gleefully listen to this whole show. We all have our breaking points, I guess.
Avatar 2:57pm worldsworstrecords:

Cheers Rich
Avatar 2:58pm worldsworstrecords:

No more William Hung then?
Avatar 2:59pm worldsworstrecords:

thanks everyone. Love you all x

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm ARB:

Thank you! I came in on William Hung and found it better than every cover I've heard played on hostel roof tops across the globe

Cheers ParUbi
