Listener comments!

  3:08am Guillermo from Barcelona:

Best way to start the week!! Great selections, Emily, thanks!
  3:10am B Wad:

Morning Jersey and all. Tel Aviv here at the doctors office getting blood taking, WFMU in my ears....it always eases the pain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12am Emily L:

Morning! Thanks for hanging out. Glad to be of service, B Wad!
  3:15am Guillermo from Barcelona:

These grooves are better than coffee

Nice angular start.

I’m not a fan of Joy Division.

And then I hear a song and it’s growing on me, and then I’m like, “Damn this is a good song.” And I check the playlist and it’s Joy Division.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36am Emily L:

If it feels any better, it's a Peel session
Avatar 3:40am B/wad:

The only other WFMU DJ who's voice I look forward to on set-breaks more than Emily is Stan. High bar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07am chaos_in_la_la:

ya know how the whole world is obsessed w LA? I love how this set is not. Thx @ EL
  4:13am Guillermo from Barcelona:

I'm obsessed with this show! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16am chaos_in_la_la:

I listened to The Kids chapter read by DJ Anita Sarko at 3:30 in the Beastie Boys Book audible earlier today...
This set feels like a continuation of that. What is there not to love?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18am Emily L:

Thnx, all. How is the Beastie Boys book?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23am chaos_in_la_la:

Free trial at audible, 12+hours, read by dozens of our fav peoples. highly recco'd. Excellent history of nyc 80's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27am Emily L:

Love a good music bio
  4:31am egould310:

Wild sounds!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32am chaos_in_la_la:

so far, about 1/3 of the way in, I'm making notes, taking names, breaking bios. @ EL, this is the first time i've listened to your show. I feel safe saying you may quite like the audible BB bio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33am chaos_in_la_la:

and the BB's would've liked your show quite a lot too..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37am Emily L:

Haha love it
Avatar 4:47am nematomorpha:

i think it's about a dood who becomes a porn actor
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49am Emily L:

All good show names
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51am chaos_in_la_la:

Th BB book is more of an autobiography by ADROCK and Mike D, with other additions. It's vulnerable and honest and urgent, much like th Beastie Boys' music.

Much like this set of music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55am Hugo (NL):

If anyone here with connections to Belarus reads this: In case of internet blackout, dial-up access available at +31205350535 user: xs4all password: xs4all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59am chaos_in_la_la:

@nematomorpha, Splash..
@Hugo is something weird happening in Belarus tonite?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06am Hugo (NL):

@ chaos_in_la_la Belarus has the last dictator in Europe. They had elections last night, and there are strong indications that the outcome is manipulated. also the internet is restricted right now by the government. So that's why we offer (dial-up) internet access which is not restricted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10am chaos_in_la_la:

@Hugo, whoa I did not know, I had not heard of this situation. Thank you for your action here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12am chaos_in_la_la:

@nematomorpha, Hollywood, how far away it is!

There weren't many roles available for him, but drugs coloured Tommi's film.
"A film's a film," thought Tommi, "why not shoot some porn every now and then?"
His body was his asset; his face wasn't shown.
Hollywood, how far away it is! And Tommi crawled from bed to bed.
Tommi then became a film actor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22am chaos_in_la_la:

o damn, Hugo. reading about this is some real deal..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36am chaos_in_la_la:

Tommy Roe's tone on Baby I Love You is the tone of my life. Anyone know if he's on the spectrum too?
Avatar 5:48am nematomorpha:

haha.. love all the german stuff.
oh fred
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57am Emily L:

Loved having you here! Have a great week & thank you, Carol!!
Avatar 5:58am Barnaby:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58am chaos_in_la_la:
