HELLO!
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:04am Bruce:

Morning! Great song!
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:05am Vicki - DO or DIY:

I'm on the internets - both live in this box, but also pre-recorded in Sunny London.
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:07am Vicki - DO or DIY:

lots of rude words to mangle in this song
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:08am Ken:

Hello all! Thanks to Vicki for covering for me this morning! Is this Queen cover really Blanketship? I have joined a kiteboarding cult in Napeague, NY.
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:09am Vicki - DO or DIY:

morning Ken - it's The Oath, from the fabulous Dynamite in a Laser Beam Queen covers album...
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:09am Ghengis Jung:

Vicki - I'm glad you're here and everything to fill in for Ken, because I love your work and everything and but so I'm wondering if you might have access to Larry, because, well, it's Wednesday, and I miss Larry.
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:10am Vicki - DO or DIY:

Larry's in the lake with Ken
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:11am Ken:

Larry and I will be doing a water-bound remote broadcast next week.
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:12am Ghengis Jung:

Tell Larry I said hello, and that he sounds tired.
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:14am Copydex Wales:

**Excited!!***
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:15am Negator:

Vicki, good morning. We should get stupid with 'The Bad Restaurant Boogie'. Love that song!
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:16am Vicki - DO or DIY:

Oh acgually (I'll keep that typo) Ken, yes - the second track was Blanketship - he did it for the Blanketship session on DO or DIY a few weeks back, isn't it fantastic?
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:17am Vicki - DO or DIY:

morning Copydex Wales, are you a subdivision of Copydex UK?
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:18am Vicki - DO or DIY:

morning Negator, I'm not allowed to play my own music (because fmu is thankfully non-commercial) - I am only allowed to ruin other peoples music
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:19am Copydex Wales:

Copydex UK is bloated and fake. I am the gluey truth!
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:20am Mike Harding:

I'm just off to the dentist now...
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:20am jan:

Vicki: after more than 30 years of listening to WFMU, I am mostly down to listening only on Wednesdays to the 2 Kens and Irwin. You are the only replacement for ken worth a damn! I wish I could remember to listen to your evening show, but I am mostly on to other media at that time. Please come to DAYTIME WFMU- your programming is brilliant!
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:21am Mike Harding:

I agree with jan!
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:21am Vicki - DO or DIY:

morning Jan - you could always subscribe to the DO or DIY podcast?
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:21am Copydex Wales:

Hear here. Do Or Di-Daytime for real!
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:22am Vicki - DO or DIY:

maybe I'll get to do some more daytime fill ins. Hey, talking and typing at the same time! And eating a quiche!
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:23am jan:

could do as you suggest- I have an iPod, but never tried it for t podcast
I love radio- you turn it on and listen! And we americans love your accent.
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:24am Vicki - DO or DIY:

you can subscribe with literally one click on the wfmu podcast page - so long as you have itunes... it's very clever
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:25am jan:

quiche! you just lost me- what kind of bourgeous meal is that!
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:25am Keith:

Vicki- I usually don't listen to WFMU live at this hour, but because you are gifting the airwaves, I am hear.
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:27am Vicki - DO or DIY:

well thank you.

My quiche cost a pound from the supermarket and tastes of nothing
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:28am Dickdong (UK):

How very nice to hear an English accent on WFMU. on a reasonably pleasant afternoon here in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:30am Vicki - DO or DIY:

It's PS3-ing it down with non-stop RAIN in Wales. National dish...
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:33am dei xhrist:

  Wed. 8/13/08 9:35am axlotl:

  Wed. 8/13/08 9:35am Lizardner Dave:

"I have nothing to say, but I have a fine voice to say it in" - Nihilist Spasm Band, Festival Musique Actuelle, Victoriaville, Canada, whatever year it was I got arrested at the border.

The Nihilist Spasm Band are amazing - they've been doing this since the 1960s
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:40am JJZ:

I always like Oleg Kostrow's work.
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:41am Vicki - DO or DIY:

I don't know how his music can sound Russian but it does. Yes, I know he's Russian. But how does a sample arist sound Russian?
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:42am wagdog:

Ok, I'm supposed to be working. You're making it too darn hard to concentrate!
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:44am Vicki - DO or DIY:

yes, I'm having the same problem
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:44am Listener Dave from NH:

He could sound Russian by sampling Yakov Smirnoff maybe?
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:45am Vicki - DO or DIY:

yes, or by drinking it
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:47am Ken:

Logging off now... next week I will be live form my rowboat and the week after that, it's the return of David Suisman! Bye everybody!

  Wed. 8/13/08 9:52am dei x:

I wish you could play RIAA's "My Mississippi" but the FCC rejects my request.
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:54am Vicki - DO or DIY:

Is the FCC the sister pop group to RIAA? Yes, I've not got that one lined up, but will play another time, if somewhat mangled. Great to get to play all this stuff on daytime fmu
  Wed. 8/13/08 9:54am stingy d:

YOU ARE ALL WEARING THOSE FURRY BOOTS
EXCEPT FOR THOSE OF YOU WEARING THE RUBBER BOOTS YOUR HEELS DISGUST MY SENSIBILITIES

Von Sudenfed always sounds like a German cough medicine to me.
  Wed. 8/13/08 10:04am Vicki - DO or DIY:

Morning! I'm guessing lots of Europeans are listening too? No I'm not on your BBC player, anyway fmu has far better audio archives!
  Wed. 8/13/08 10:05am gumby:

  Wed. 8/13/08 10:08am ritmutituki:

  Wed. 8/13/08 10:56am Chris Knight:

Vicki, that explains EVERYTHING. Muwhhahahahah. Growing up with the Muppets...
  Wed. 8/13/08 10:57am Vicki - DO or DIY:

  Wed. 8/13/08 10:58am north guinea hills:

even though i'm temporarily blinded, i love the color scheme on the comments page.
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:00am Vicki - DO or DIY:

i could change the colour scheme only i may lock myself out or soemthing bad
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:02am north guinea hills:

the color reminds me of a my bloody valentine valentine sent to me on valentine's day.
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:04am Chris Knight:

It's beautiful, don't change a thing. Unless you can make it flash.
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:04am Vicki - DO or DIY:

I can make it flash in the song after this one...
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:05am Vicki - DO or DIY:

so what's the playlist comments record? We're on 141 at the moment
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:06am gumby:

Rank Sinatra certainly is.
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:07am Lizardner Dave:

You might have a shot. I think the SSD where Andy had to pay Andrea a nickel for every comment got close to 200.
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:07am Steve:

it's been flashing here for like at least an hour now. That's not you doing that Vicki?
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:07am Vicki - DO or DIY:

There you go Chris... Flash, ARGGHHHHH!
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:08am Ghengis Jung:

  Wed. 8/13/08 11:11am Chris Knight:

Mike Harding, flash us some of those teeth.
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:11am north guinea hills:

  Wed. 8/13/08 11:12am GP:

Vicki,
Just saw your PLUs site, looks like I have a lot of catching up to do.
I really should be working but now I have a permanent afterimage of a purple,pink, and burgundy screen burned into me retinas...nothing will ever look the same again...
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:12am Parq:

Oh man, I LOVE the Muppets' version of "Simon Smith". Together!
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:13am annie:

'twould be so easy......if the speakers went downstairs and to my truck.. thence to the highway.. i'll be late.. so be it.. when will they make it easy to get any station on your car radio. funny, i'm only about two hours northwest of jersey

those are 3 of my flashing teeth
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:16am dei x:

This whole show has been sing-a-long... that's what puts the "retard" next to the "avant". Evolutionary and progressive music, still finding the ole' standards appealing. I bet Cage wasn't above humming Girl From Ipanema.
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:17am Mike Harding:

I know these guys. They are funny
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:18am Copydex Wales:

Give it up for Bill Bargefott & Tony Gage!
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:18am Chris Knight:

"It's just amazing how out there people can be." You said it, Scooter.

Vicki, I assume this show will become part of the Do or DIY podcast feed, no? Or Ken's podcast? Or both?

Mike, nice teeth, although a bit red...Flashy!
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:18am Vicki - DO or DIY:

John Cage was full of humour

  Wed. 8/13/08 11:38am hjmaiere:

Why does my brain waste so many cells storing memories of this stuff with such annoying fidelity?
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:38am Chris Knight:

Jettepaque, they have pills for that (sadly, they do!)
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:39am Ike:

Didn't they use this ELO song in a really terrible episode of Doctor Who in 2006? Filmed in Wales, naturally.

So, was Maladroit the Beastie Boys/Huey Lewis/sped-up Britney mash-up?
  Wed. 8/13/08 11:39am Vicki - DO or DIY:

ok, everyone enter a comment now! - let's break the internets

I was in Ireland in 1973 when ELO released "Roll Over". By the time I got back stateside, it was on the radio. All of 17, I felt so ahead of the curve.
