A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Listener comments!

  Thu. 8/28/08 9:14am 55fps:

Good morning Trouble.
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:16am trouble:

good morning!
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:20am Tom (The Bactrian Support Network):

Nice Nina Simone opener !! First number you play (and the rest of show too) , but first one I am like sitting in my chair just wondering every Tuesday morning ..! Bonjour !! .. Comment Allez-Vous??
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:20am Bad Ronald:

Howdy Folks!
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:22am Negator:

Poco? Now I know why they call you "Trouble". YEAH!
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:24am Negator:

You know, there's a Poco record in every thrift store in this great nation? Fact.
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:25am Bad Ronald:

the one with the drawing of a horse on the cover?
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:27am gumby:

Did someone say Pokie? I'm gonna catch that horse if I can.
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:28am Parq:

Poco evokes another time so powerfully that just saying the name makes me feel like it's a quarter century ago.
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:29am gumby:

Is that ptchouli & weed smoke I smell?
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:31am gumby:

This is definately the sadest song ever written.
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:32am Bad Ronald:

Sadder than "Ode to Billy Joe"?
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:33am KapoStrano:

Tell Me More and Then Some. All roads lead through Nina Simone and, speaking of Billie Holliday, are you going to play any Prez today? You know it was Lester Young's birthday yesterday.

Love ya, trouble!
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:36am gumby:

Happy belated b-day Prez!
BR - His beer bucket has hole in it, he can't buy no beer!!!!!! That's a tradgedy,
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:38am Bad Ronald:

Gotcha Gumby - I now concur!
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:40am gumby:

Mingus's "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" would be an appropriate Prez salute. Not that you need help Trouble, your selections are always The Picks that Click!
BR - He did seem happy though, maybe he's on the wagon.
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:42am 55fps:

Lady Gumby, isn't 'Pork Pie' a tribute to Eric Dolphy?
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:45am Bad Ronald:

It seems he's on the running board of a Ford with his baby...
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:46am Charles Mingus:

"Goodbye Porkpie Hat" is indeed a tribute to Prez. You may be thinking of "So Long Eric."
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:46am gumby:

I ain't no lady, I'm his wife!
I dunno, I thought that was for Lester. it's a good tune anywho. I'm diggin' this crazy horn number too!
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:48am gumby:

Prez is in da joint!!!!!!
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:54am gumby:

Mingus!!! We thought you was dead.
  Thu. 8/28/08 9:56am 55fps:

Thanks Lady Chuck, my bad (I shoulda known betta).
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:01am listener mark:

Good Morning everyone, Good Morning DJ Trouble
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:02am gumby:

Top 'o the Mornin' lm.
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:03am Adrian in London:

I'm listening to this at my Mac wearing light blue earphones, which I had to buy at lunchtime after my black ones gave up the ghost. They look like something My Little Pony would wear. Maybe I should have gone all out and bought the pink ones?
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:11am gumby:

I wouldn't sweat it Adrian if there in your ears you can't see them. But fashion is not my forte. Plaids & stripes whooo-hooo!
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:12am fishmonkeystew:

Here's another vote for Goodbye Porkpie Hat! Mingus for the win!! Good morning, Trouble.
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:13am gumby:

Listen to me? Four or five coffees and I'm Dear Abbie.
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:15am 55fps:

When did Wire get back together. Who's in it?
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:15am John Prine:

Dear Abby, Dear Abby...
Well I never thought
That me and my girlfriend would ever get caught
We were sitting in the back seat just shooting the breeze
With her hair up in curlers and her pants to her knees
Signed Just Married
Just Married, Just Married...
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:18am gumby:

John you are what you are and you ain't what you ain't,
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:20am Dear Abby:

Pardon me, I think I'm gumby.
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:22am GP:

Morning all..Afternoon to Europe
Adrian...at least nobody will sta your phones!
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:22am trouble:

keep it cool people or i will shut this baby down...
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:23am GP:

STA..hmmmm, I think I meant "steal"
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:25am Adrian in London:

I know, someone nicked the 'e' and the 'l'. Loved that Silver Summit track Trouble
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:25am GP:

Trouble, what are you seeing that we aren't? Do you have something like the 5 sec delay where you can kill comments before they can burn into our eyes?
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:29am trouble:

i have the magical power of delete and I have used it this morning...so yes your lovely eyes have not seen all that has transpired. and it is not cool...
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:30am Derek:

My curiosity is killing me. I'm dying to know what's "not keeping cool"...
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:30am 55fps:

I managed to catch it and you're right Trouble, totally uncool!
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:31am GP:

Trouble..its not like you have anything else to do right ; )
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:32am listener mark:

stop it right now or I'll turn this car around. and no stopping for ice cream
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:34am trouble:

bingo! and i like ice cream, so don't get the viking lady mad
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:36am ?:

I am corn-fused! what is not cool here??
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:43am gumby:

Speaking of birds. A hummingbird came up to about a foot from my face this morning, then hung there staring straight at me, then flew off. Now that was cool!
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:44am Steve:

Hi Trouble!
Still listening - Still loving :)
What is it that you teach?
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:45am dc pat:

you're lucky he didn't bite you...
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:45am listener mark:

back to school for the smaller DJs
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:50am gumby:

dc I know there aggressive, but I'm faster. Ha-Ha
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:50am Carmichael:

Good morning, everyone. Nothin like walking in on a Poco conversation an hour later.

I have that horse drawing tattooed on my shoulder. One of my all-time faves, and I'm pleasantly surprised to have had the chance to hear it on WFMU.

Sonny Burgess, too .... Damn, I have to get up earlier.
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:53am GP:

I like this Caroline song She sounds a little like Bjork.
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:54am dc pat:

I've been seeing a lot more humming birds lately. Maybe things are getting juicier and sweeter?//
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:58am GP:

We can only hope dc pat, we can only hope....your comment placed the image of moldy peaches into my mind....which, while not only being almost too sweet, would also be great to hear right now...hint hint.
  Thu. 8/28/08 10:59am Adrian in London:

I thought Caroline sounded like Stina Nordenstam, which can only be good. Unless you're Stuart Staples, of course.
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:01am gumby:

they seem to like our Rose of Sharons, although this one was by a rose bush. I used to put up the feeder, but someone told me that the sugar water ferments to form alcohol and the hummingbirds become addicted, so I stopped. I just had a plum, it was good, not moldy.
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:02am Harvey:

Do DJs get offended by requests in the comment section?
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:04am listener mark:

Had some nice organic pears from Woodstock flea market. Didn't buy any fleas
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:07am gumby:

Two good words about Fall. Seckles Pears!!!! YUM!!!!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:09am trouble:

harvey i don't get offended, but i can't always accomodate requests due to time or taste constraints. but request away...
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:09am Carmichael:

They probably get offended by comments in the comments section.
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:09am gumby:

Speaking of bugs. Did anyone see in Beijing where they have a market to sell crickets for fighting contests. They could get a mess around my house right now.
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:13am Bad Ronald:

"Psycho" by Jack Kittel would be cool...
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:14am gumby:

Painted up, Powdered up, Bad Country Chicks rule!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:18am GP:

Michele..M E O W ! Yea baby....( trying to do my best Austin Powers imitation which would be embarrassing if seen any where else other than on the radio!)
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:20am Harvey:

Ah, I was just wondering. By the way, during that esser track I was thinking, "Boy, this sounds like Loser!"
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:20am listener mark:

  Thu. 8/28/08 11:21am GP:

BECK!!!@@!!! I believer the term is " SWEET" Nice choice ...Trouble
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:23am JJZ:

Ah, I love Thunder Road.
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:23am Carmichael:

Dick Curless, "Chick Inspector". The most politically incorrect trucker song in history. I think you all would heartily enjoy it.
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:24am ?:

Thunder Road!

I just watched the movie last night. COINCIDENCE??
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:26am gumby:

Beer buckets with holes. Incinerated moonshine. Oh the humanity. :( sob, sob
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:28am Mickey Mephistopheles:

Yum, Whiskey!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:28am Pete Townsend:

My life's a mess I wait for you to pass
I stand here at the bar, I hold an empty glass
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:31am Parq:

See? He *still* can't explain.
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:32am Rachael:

Where are all the LADIES listening to FMU?
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:34am Lady55fps:

We're all ladies today, Lady Rachael. It's Prez's B-day!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:34am Anna:

  Thu. 8/28/08 11:35am Jerry Lewis:

  Thu. 8/28/08 11:42am Laurie:

  Thu. 8/28/08 11:42am jennifer:

  Thu. 8/28/08 11:42am Victoria:

  Thu. 8/28/08 11:43am Louise B:

Have a Junior Mint on me, Madame T!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:44am Adrian in London:

"A sausagefest"? Classy
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:45am kym:

Your good time girls have all gone bad, Trouble.
Great show!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:45am cb:

dear trouble--I am a lady who supports wfmu and I send you my
love--always, but especially for alerting me the other week to "have you made up
your mind" from paul weller's new record. and here it is again!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:45am Jennique:

Trouble, je t'ecoute et je suis une femme.
Merci pour tous les chansons cherie!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:46am Laurie:

Adrian: Whaaat?? Don't judge!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:46am Kid Salami:

Bring on the buns!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:46am Carmichael:

Adrian, we have some pretty swanky gals on this side of the pond.
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:46am Harvey:

I think now would be an appropriate time for "Chocolate Girl"
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:47am Laurel:

Any ladies gonna be left once Joe Belock comes on? hahaha
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:47am Carmichael:

Or "Hey Playgirl".
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:48am Adrian in London:

Indeed. Just slightly taken aback at the aforementioned meat products expression. No judging from over here.
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:49am victoria:

Joe B is one of my faves!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:49am Bad Ronald:

Don't sweat it Laurie we still love you!
(Not sure if that makes you feel any better or worse)
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:50am Laurie:

Adrian: We can't all be classy like Boris.
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:51am Carmichael:

Boris Johnson?!? HA HA ....
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:51am Bad Ronald:

I guess they call it a bangerfest in London...
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:52am Carmichael:

And a chorizofest in San Juan.
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:52am Henry Darger:

Love those Vivians!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:53am Matt:

Speaking of girls and classy, I love the Vivian Girls!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:53am Bad Ronald:

longinisafest in Manilla!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:53am Adrian in London:

Oh, the horror. Where to begin with Boris. People were being chucked in jail left right and centre in China and they let that idiot go free. On behalf of London, and I am truly sorry. But at least you don't have to live here with him "in charge" Laurie!
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:56am Carmichael:

Let's not get started about our own leader, Adrian.
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:57am Laurie:

No, I just had to spend eight years in a country under the "leadership" of George W. Bush. Boris > Dubya, surely?

And was Ken Livingston really so bad that Boris looked like the better option? Did people vote for Boris because of his hair? Did they really hate those congestion charges that much?
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:58am owen:

ken was also rubbish. 9 billion pounds on an olympics anyone? who needs hospitals, eh?
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:58am Parq:

Speaking of cultural linguistic glitches, they just had the Tomato Festival in Spain. Imagine if someone in the US said to you, "Let's go out and find a bunch of nice tomatos and whack hell out of them."
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:58am Lady Rachael:

  Thu. 8/28/08 11:59am Bad Ronald:

Would you consider life under the current administration a BushFest?
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:59am Harvey:

Well, my hat is off to the freeform ladies. The world could use more like you.
  Thu. 8/28/08 11:59am PG:

Mayor of London isn't terribly powerful anyway.
  Thu. 8/28/08 12:00pm Bad Ronald:

Wonderful Eno tune thanks Trouble!
  Thu. 8/28/08 12:02pm Adrian in London:

People voted against Ken as a way of attacking the hopeless Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who's from the same party. And hey, Ken brought the Tour de France to London! Great show, Trouble!
  Tue. 9/2/08 3:38pm Chris:

Trouble, best set in a long long long time.

They're all amazing by the way, but this one hit home
  Thu. 9/4/08 11:11am terry:

It's not hard to understand,Trouble.
The rich girl was cheered for the same reason that all the celebrities in Hollywood are made so much of everytime one has a kid. Like its so hard to get preggers.
Hollywood glorifies mommyhood so politics is no different.
