  Wed. 6/25/08 9:01am cribley:

Good morning [Listener] Dave.
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:02am Ken:

I too would like to say hello to Listener Dave.
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:02am nEGATOR:

Keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen! You old cool dj. Sprinkle some farie dust on this one.
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:03am dei xhrist:

if dancing makes the lord cry, what makes the page shudder and the queen laugh so hard that ale comes out of her nose?
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:04am catpatz:

for some reason i decided her shirt said dancing makes the losers cry.
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:07am Listener Dave:

Which one of us? There are many. I'm the one from Staten Island, not the one from New Hampshire and not the one who did the SSD fill-in last week.

Good morning to all of you regardless of who you meant! Hmm..maybe I need a new screen name.
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:07am ajensen:

You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Ken, and I won't have it. Is that clear?
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:09am JJZ:

Does that mean the schedule change?
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:09am norwegian mountain dude:

i like the shirt: dancing leads to sex... whoo-hoo
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:09am jonathan:

ken. if you have butter roll handy, t'would be nice. tis my last week online for a time. thanks.
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:10am nEGATOR:

If dancing makes the lord cry and leads to sex, what blows the panties into the glove compartment and the car over the bridge?
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:11am nEGATOR:

Answer: Cocaine and tequilla
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:11am spaniel:

just so you know, smiling makes the lord cry too. oh yeah, and love.
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:13am cribley:

  Wed. 6/25/08 9:14am Ghengis Jung:

HELLO LARRY!
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:16am Listener Okasa:

Take care with your blasphemes, oh followers of Ken, lest you impale your immortal soul on them.
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:18am Ken:

Listener Okasa is right everybody. You don't want to offend the wrong imaginary friend. Or fiend.
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:20am Ken:

So how much are free Sonic Youth tickets for the July 4th show going for on eBay and Craigslist?
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:20am Bad Ronald:

lest you be smacked by the many hands of Vishnu.
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:21am ajensen:

It is the international system of dancing which determines the vitality of life on this planet. THAT is the natural order of things today. THAT is the atomic and subatomic and galactic structure of things today. And YOU have meddled with the primal forces of nature. And YOU WILL ATONE. Am I getting through to you, Mr. Beale?
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:23am mr beale:

Let me have my dancing and my sex and my steel-belted dancing that leads to sex in the glove comapartment and I won't say anything
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:24am dei x:

Does that couple's lack of stewardship of their own temples trouble the baby geezus?

  Wed. 6/25/08 9:31am cribley:

  Wed. 6/25/08 9:33am Listener Dave:

I left out Zatumba becase he would beat everyone easily.

He could be the special guest referre though.
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:33am Ghengis Jung:

Zatumba, easy... It's not even a fair fight. He has... powers.

Ken--at first when you played the 2nd song sample--you know how it didn't work and there was silence? You might not've realized it, but you actually played the song "(Silence)" from the whitey album

Hi Ken,

I liked Aq Sak Ma Boul. Also, could you re-schedule Kenny G to some other time? It conflicts with a weekly meeting I have to attend.
  Wed. 6/25/08 11:52am Listener Dave:

It seems the Kontest has Killed the Kulture of Kommentary this week. People are too busy trying to acquire goods instead of participating in the art. Ah well, God Bless America and Hello Sweden!
  Wed. 6/25/08 11:55am mark:

  Wed. 6/25/08 11:59am -max-:

Last comment? Woo-hoo!!
  Wed. 6/25/08 12:02pm ?:

In the distant future, WFMU will split into different virtual net entities which can magnetically scan each listener's brainwaves and determine what will automatically cause each one to say, "What the hell is THIS?" the loudest, while simulating the voices of Crowe, Chris T., Ken (even though he will long have long since gone into a coffee-induced coma), Bronwyn, Kenny G., Bryce, Pseu, and Margaret.
  Wed. 6/25/08 12:03pm Ike:

Ooops, that was me, not "?". Max, I just had to deny you the "last comment" status with my sci-fi radio ramblings.
  Wed. 6/25/08 9:11pm j:

I usually can only listen on Wednesday evenings.

But I can still comment to myself. :>}
