Listener comments!

omg this is terrific
  Wed. 1/2/08 9:36am dei xhrist:

holla, I remember hearing that Dismemberment Plan song nearly 20 years ago on the Lowell MA college station ... ho boy ...
  Wed. 1/2/08 9:42am Listener Dave:

  Wed. 1/2/08 9:43am lonnie:

really mike, joe walsh? i caught the bug about 8 years ago, and have kept it a closely gaurded secret ever since. maybe it's the eagles connection - i mean, nothing good comes from that, right? but the joe is something special and unusual, and worthy of a second look. it was like being a springsteen fan in the late '80s in high school. it didn't fit in with zen arcade and you're living all over me, but tunnel of love was a cool album. i had to keep that a secret too. now i seem cutting edge. well, maybe not...
  Wed. 1/2/08 9:50am efd:

you know what I'm going to ask about... is that Wire music CD in the new bin, or was that from the Lupica collection (a christmas gift, perhaps)?
  Wed. 1/2/08 9:52am Lupica:

From the "Lupica Collection", I'm sad to say, but I'd imagine a spangly copy for FMU's new bin is on the way!
  Wed. 1/2/08 10:08am Listener Rudy:

This! This! This is the talk-over music of which I dream.
  Wed. 1/2/08 10:16am Dan Gr:

You don't need to fix it. This is great.
  Wed. 1/2/08 10:18am dei xhrist:

listening out of Hampton NH. My fella & I took a nap before going out - his and the dogs snores were like a (Two) Stooges snoozing sonata - and at 11 went on to a party already happening and got blotto. Was in an intense conversation (ah, the best kind) about hosting hardcore shows, because apparently there's quite the underage subbacultcha for it in Manchester NH. That is, versus the overage artsy noise subset of which I'm in.
  Wed. 1/2/08 10:21am listener joe nathan:

yaay, karl hendricks!! thx, mike!!!
  Wed. 1/2/08 10:42am Parq:

[listening to "Best You Can Do" deteriorate] Oh, thank God! My co-workers were looking into my office and nodding *approvingly*. Scary.
  Wed. 1/2/08 10:43am Irwin:

Re: "No such things as death" -- yes, Mike, I'm in the house, though I might be an imagination of your bad self.
  Wed. 1/2/08 10:44am Lupica:

I should be so lucky. Zing!
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:00am dei xhrist:

does Viking of Sixth Avenue include entire tracks? The best of that I found only has snippets of the compositions, only enough to get you invested and then POW on to a new track of almost the same thing. You wouldn't do it to Steve Reich, Philip Glass, or Peter Greenaway, so why Moondog? Was it really recorded that way?
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:03am lonnie:

hey dei xhrist, sounds like cannibilsm1, so if they'd do it to can, they can do it anyone
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:06am nh_dave:

This almost redeems Lennon in my eyes.
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:07am dei xhrist:

  Wed. 1/2/08 11:10am Listener James From Westwood:

ach! ich liebe klaus!
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:11am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:24am Marcelo:

Lupica Happy 2008, and thanx for the music!!!! greetings to all the WFMU listeners
Marcelo, from Argentina
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:25am Lupica:

Thanks, Marcelo! All best to you from Stateside!
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:26am lonnie:

hey mike, how is the wire soundtrack? as good as the couple of songs you played, or are those the only choice cuts. by the way, just caught the new season premiere on hbo on-demand a couple nights ago, and it looks like the swan song season in going to be another phenomenally bleak ride.
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:30am Parq:

Just a note to say, Christmastime is becoming my favorite time at FMU. Two weeks of holiday music that doesn't suck, culminating in the triple threat of Shelley, Rex and Terre on the Saturday before the 25th. Then, two weeks of fill-in by greats not currently on the sked, like Irwin, Monica and Lupica. Yes, baby.
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:30am Listener John from Toronto:

Hey Mike, been a long tome listener and I must say that you need to be on the mic more often than just fill ins. I really miss your show.

Will someone please release "Your Choice of Sides"? Thanks
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:33am dave from ks:

"Oh my God"f**ckin grade A music,totally global,almost makes one "proud to be an amerikkkan...thanks to M.L.
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:37am Doug:

Great to hear you Mike! Please come back and do a proper weekly slot again soon.
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:39am Irwin Chusid:

Viking of Sixth Avenue has complete tracks. There might have been some editing somewhere along the way (including back in Moondog's day), but Vo6A does not contain anything I would call "snippets." FYI, a lot of Moondog tracks are short (2-3 minutes), but that's the way he recorded them.
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:42am Bad Ronald:

  Wed. 1/2/08 11:43am dei xhrist:

yay, some Theremin! And thanks Irwin, you really are the music trivia bomb. I just felt that the pieces I was listening to were audio crib notes because they implied greater depth. Why would you get a whole orchestra together to follow a complex score and then just abort at 3 minutes? That's just too darn experimental for me, I guess.
  Wed. 1/2/08 11:54am lee:

good to hear you back on air.
  Wed. 1/2/08 12:00pm dirty 30:

great way to ring out my 20s. lupica and a breakfast guinness. hurry back to the airwaves!!!!! great set as usual.
  Wed. 1/2/08 2:30pm Mike Lupica:

Lonnie, the Wire soundtrack is unbelievably great. As I said on mic, the music in that show punctuates the plotlines so well, it becomes impossible to disassociate them from one another after just one viewing. (Witness Steve Earle's "I Feel Alright" or Solomon Burke's "Fast Train".) There's also another Wire-related CD out now of all Baltimore-area stuff, including some selections by DJ Technics. Short version: the new Nonesuch disc is as recommended as the show.
