Listener comments!

  Wed. 2/6/08 9:02am Listener Dave:

Good morning, and welcome to Ken's Kulture of Kommentary!
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:04am Ken:

Oh, how I wish I had never uttered that phrase....
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:06am Listener Dave:

Why? It's Katchy!

(OK, that's the last of the "K" bit. How did that go?)
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:06am jonathan:

which one?
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:09am uta:

That's O.K. we still love ya..
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:12am John from Oslo:

Good morning to you Ken. And waking up to the news today, the headlining story was... the american election... in Norway. Hmmm, the Swedish election (our country next door) has never been of equal interest here, or the Danish, or the Icelandic, or the Finnish... I wish we could get some interesting american news, like Zappa, Elvis, Belushi and Joey Ramone - still alive!
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:12am ?:

Thanks for honoring my telepahtic request for the Deteriorata!

How many of the kids do you think understand the reference to "your dog finally getting enough cheese"?
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:13am John from Oslo:

---and Patsy Cline
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:14am jonathan:

and joe strummer
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:14am Ken:

John - That's pretty funny, given how non-eventful "super duper Tuesday" really was.
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:15am John from Oslo:

...and Billy Joel
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:20am JJZ:

We had a funny bit in the news about election judges making people fill out paper ballots with a stylus. He insisted it was invisible ink, and even when the ballot checker noted it was blank, he overrode it. It wasn't fraud, just stupidity.
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:29am jonathan:

more roth
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:32am bb:

thanks for getting me onto the big blood and johnny moped! im quite digging the grove!

and that wire comp has quickly become my favorite of those things...almost makes up for always having to wait 2 weeks into the month to have my copy delivered
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:33am bb:

super fat tuesday
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:44am dc pat:

aaahhhh, love the OTR
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:48am Keith:

I've heard about the Kronos Hendrix stuff for years, but never actually heard it. Kinda good.
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:49am nh_dave:

Was I the only person that had to google old time relijun to make sure that David Bryne didn't join them on vocals?
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:49am Vivian:

Happy post Super/Fat Tuesday to Ken and everyone!

Ken, can you locate 'Object of My Affection?' I think you acquired it from the last WFMU record fair.
And oh yes, more Roth.
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:52am jojo:

ah wednesday morning with Ken..it could be all the residue in my bloodstream from past days but wednesday morning seems my most sober period of the week! THANKS KEN!
  Wed. 2/6/08 9:56am miss buxley:

  Wed. 2/6/08 9:57am Ken:

  Wed. 2/6/08 10:08am -max-:

It's not Ken's fault!!
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:10am Doug:

Holy shit! I want to go to SXSW very badly now.
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:20am Chris in Copenhagen:

Just a quick 'hello' from Copenhagen.
Great crazy stuff that's playing now :)
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:22am Ken:

Hello Copenhagen!
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:27am Chris in Copenhagen:

Hello Ken

http://www.trumtrum.se/trum/musik_m4a.htm

Cheers
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:28am Chris in Copenhagen:

Sorry, that funny writing should have been one of them German umlauts.....
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:29am -max-:

Hey Chris! Where have you been? We missed you!
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:30am John from Oslo:

Hi Christ. Neither "æ", "ø" nor "å" seems to work. But the show rocks!
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:31am Meredith:

This is totally making my morning possible!
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:32am Ken:

Man, I would love to get my hands on more Music fur Allum CDs or even better, MP3s! All we have at the station is the CD "Twice."
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:33am Chris in Copenhagen:

Well, there are two downloadable tracks on the page there. including their first smash-hit Ullared.
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:34am Ken:

Great! Thanks Chris. I will grab them after my show.
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:40am Alx:

It's been so long since I've heard Akira OST and now I remember why I always loved it :) Thank you.
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:41am jeanine:

Tetsuuuuooooooo!
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:44am The voice of Cheese:

Hey Ken, whatever happened to Professor Dum Dum?
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:45am -max-:

I recognize that voice!
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:49am Ken:

Dum Dum is still around - I think he's at an Incubus Training Seminar in Geneva right now.
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:49am john:

re: peels - play it all! it's great
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:50am Parq:

I believe Dum Dum's line here would be, your *mother* is at an Incubus Seminar in Genevea right now.
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:54am Bad Ronald:

I love professor Dum Dum he's much smarter than Brian.
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:55am Charles:

Great show as always, Ken!
  Wed. 2/6/08 10:55am John from Oslo:

Gordon Jenkins and DJ Ordeal O'boy, great stuff Ken!
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:01am Doug:

I could listen to this all day long.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:02am topple austin:

just saw yall are coming to town for sxsw... it'll be sweet to have something to battle the rachel ray showcase
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:02am zazu:

whoa - where was the dialogue from from that last track? Sounds like from an old movie
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:11am Doug:

Do you know how many time zones there are in the Soviet Union?
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:12am giselle:

oh lord not the Miami Beach phone guy again!
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:13am Gregory:

The cut is reminding me of the US satellite that is going to fall on us all in the next week or so. Doug, can you offer us any consolation for this impending tragedy?
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:13am -max-:

Is that a trick question? As in, the Soviet Union no longer exists, so the answer would be "zero", right?
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:14am Doug:

Eleven.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:16am William:

Have I mentioned that I always turn WFMU off when somebody plays a crank call or DJ prank recording? Check back with you at noon...
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:18am Rudy "Negativland" Giuliani:

Doug: I know this one. The answer is of course Eleven. And to answer your next question (what is the is the ninth month of the year?) September
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:19am Ken:

Bye bye William! I'll be lost without you!
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:19am Doug:

They have so much power, man.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:20am Ghengis Jung:

Well, there goes WFMU... Now that William is gone...
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:20am Jason:

Have I mentioned that I always turn WFMU off whenever they play rap? Check back with you next week,
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:22am Martha in Atlanta:

And have I mentioned that I turn off WFMU whenever they get too predictable?
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:22am Mace in the Lace:

Have I mentioned?
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:23am Rudy:

Re William's comment "Did I mention......" - Did I mention that I will always remember that first day I stumbled upon this fine station, WFMU. It was in fourth day of the second week of September..........
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:24am dei xhrist:

I only turn off WFMU when they play country.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:25am Vivian:

Did I mention I turn off WFMU when I go to bed?
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:26am Doug:

I don't figure anyone gives a shit when I turn it off.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:27am Mark:

I don't I do some of my best listening when I'm asleep
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:27am Ment Shun:

Did I mention "did I mention"?
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:27am Winslow:

Let the DJ play what he pleases. I only turn off WFMU during lightning storms.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:29am Ken:

Jesus. I turn off WFMU 12 times a day, and I work here!
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:30am north guinea hills:

did i mention the mentioning of my last mention where it was once mentioned that i stop listening to wfmu when i'm not listening to wfmu?
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:32am Mace in the Lace:

No, North Guineau Hills, you haven't mentioned that. Do tell!
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:32am LIstener Dave:

Have I mentioned how much I enjoy Ken's Kulture Of Kommentary?
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:33am Parq:

Well, as long as we're coming clean, I turn WFMU off when, at work, my boss walks into my office, or when, at home, my more mainstream-oriented spouse complains that she is tired of hearing what sounds like small animals being tortured.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:34am Nick the Bard:

Did I mention that in Soviet Russia, radio turns off you?
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:34am north guinea hills:

well, it was back we were all mentioning the mentioning days of mention, and it was mentioned that one was not listening to wfmu at which point i realized there was a point before i was mentioning where i was not listening to wfmu beyond that one metapoint.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:34am attn: Parq:

You forgot "did I mention"
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:35am Andy Breckman:

Enough of the "mention" nonsense already! I only listen to WFMU when they play James Taylor - IE never. Hence I am a first time caller - Love the show. BTW I don't wear headphones on the air (I do chew gum) so I dont even listen the one hour in the week that I could (WEDS 6-7PM) but you should.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:35am Elmer J Fudd:

I own a mention and a yacht.

Again!
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:36am Raj:

Forgot the demon reverb was on!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

That was beautiful
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:37am so what:

Ken has white hair, but he plays black music.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:41am William:

Did I mention that I was once the victim of a prank calling radio DJ?
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:42am Mark:

I thought you left
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:42am William:

I'd like to see how much you'd laugh if you had to live each day of the rest of your life as a prank phone call survivor, with only the promise of noon to look forward to!
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:45am -max-:

Thanks for stopping by Andy! And I'm not being sarcastic...
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:46am Ben:

max, that Andy is an IMPOSTOR--he never shies away from an overused schtick!
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:47am Ken:

That reminds me -- Andy is supposed to do the last five minutes of the show today!
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:47am Hugo from Bergen:

I thought the next record might be the Zurick Sisters (or the Cackle Sisters as they were also known as) and indeed it was. A classic as is the entire Trikont anthology!
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:50am Ghengis:

Do you'll think he'll actually show up, or even remember saying it?
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:51am Ken:

No, of course he wont remember and I wont even be able to reach him. But I'll try.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:52am kamil antosiewicz:

yodeling and apocalyptica. i am male and i love you.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:54am Hugo from Bergen:

And now Grieg! There was once a Mountain Grill up on Portobello Road. Used to be frequented by Hawkwind etc. Mind you, the food was nothing special.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:55am Ghengis:

He's probably just throwing his kids' books away...
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:56am Doug of Canada:

The Mountain Grill!!!! Priceless ....
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:56am jneil:

re: Hall Of The Mountain Grill ... your Hawkwind is showing!
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:59am Parq:

Andy's a lot sharper on first waking than I am, that's for dang sure.
  Wed. 2/6/08 11:59am kamil antosiewicz:

If i were to buy grills, they would be by Paul Wall
http://www.grillsbypaulwall.com/
  Wed. 2/6/08 12:00pm William:

Have you no shame?!
  Wed. 2/6/08 12:01pm Ben:

Listener comments chicken! GO!
  Wed. 2/6/08 12:01pm Raj:

Will the writer's strike ever end?????
  Wed. 2/6/08 12:01pm PD:

It's not dead air if he's talking.
  Wed. 2/6/08 12:02pm NJ:

oh yuck, we can hear him soaping his privates
  Wed. 2/6/08 12:02pm Ghengis:

I hope you recorded that!
  Wed. 2/6/08 12:02pm -max-:

Not the first time FMU has broadcast someone taking a shower, actually.
  Wed. 2/6/08 12:03pm uta:

GIVE HIM A GUM! PLEEEASE
  Wed. 2/6/08 12:24pm arn:

Ken, the hand of the Lord bit was hilarious. thanks
  Wed. 2/6/08 1:33pm Crib:

I thought for sure that Andy would sing the Puberty Fairy Song in the shower.
  Thu. 2/7/08 3:54pm Negator:

Awesome show Ken! Did I mention that I smoke the pope's toenails when I want to get HIGH!
  Sun. 2/10/08 6:37pm john:

please please no more from the caller from miami beach about the plane crash. PLEASE K man.
  Sat. 6/14/08 2:21pm Tom Walls:
