Listener comments!

  Mon. 10/13/08 12:03pm Sean Daily:

First comment! Woo hoo!
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:05pm Parq:

First cup of coffee. Even more so.
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:06pm GP:

Does that Dungen track end like that or where you just tired of listening to it?
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:08pm Doug:

Oh damn! New Circle!

I so happy
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:09pm Liz B.:

That's actually how it ends.
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:15pm Nichole:

Thoroughly enjoying the show this morning! (in Montana)
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:16pm not for nothin:

but these guys have been making this song for 30 years, and i'm sick of it!
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:30pm Cecile:

whooo Alan Parsons cover!
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:38pm Ike:

That awesome track is inspired by tea? Usually I'm skeptical of anything "inspired by" anything, but tea is definitely a muse. My decaf black tea this morning is helping me stay sane.
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:39pm Nichole:

Yesss! Dead Western just played a show in Missoula, he was fantastic! I love this record!
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:49pm jen:

my roommate just said to me, "liz is kicking butt on her show." and i said, "liz always kicks butt on her show." it's true!
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:49pm bocaberta:

great show, liz. keep on with the good work. yours truly, boca.
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:51pm Liz B.:

Thanks guys!
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:59pm GP:

Man, I am totally singing this ALL day long, thanks LIZ
  Mon. 10/13/08 12:59pm detroitdave:

Hi Liz! Hey all.........the market is up 560 pts and oil is low...WOOoooo HOOooo! A Good Monday!
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:03pm detroitdave:

Dana Drake???
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:07pm Cecile:

I snuggle with coffee. Poor man's Ritalin, I call it.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:08pm don2D:

heard your show in my car ... now i'm on the internet ... how can I hear more of the kurt and chris weisman sounds ... you made my day with that. It's the kind of stuff I've been tuning into WFMU for over the last 20 years! thanks
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:10pm Cecile:

down payment blues by AC/DC is a great unemployed song.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:11pm HotRod:

Times are tough! At least we always have music.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:15pm detroitdave:

Like Sean D sez.......Yes.. the music......the precious music...
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:15pm Listener Ed:

Andy, send a resume to Andy Adler, Managing Editor, Vantage Press, Inc., 419 Park Ave. So., NYC 10016. We're hiring free-lance editors. I will tell him to look out for. Cheers,
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:16pm Scott:

Ha ha! These are great laid off tunes. I wish I knew of these when I was laid off. Hey Andy!
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:17pm (mta) Tony:

Hey V, don't you ever sleep?

Liz, will your boyfriend work for food? Dinner is prepared if he can re-design a website.

Liz, has any swag been mailed out yet since last marathon?
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:17pm HotRod:

I needed these tunes. Thanks, Liz.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:17pm fishmonkeystew:

Hi Liz!! How 'bout "Hot Plate Heaven at the Green Hotel" by Zappa? It'd fit right in.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:19pm Cecile:

honest to god, that AC/DC is great.
"I have a Cadillac, but I can't afford the gasoline" is one of the choice lines...

And thank for playing the DOGG!
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:20pm Cecile:

Although, as a recovering English major, I keep changing it to "ON my resume" in my head.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:20pm Monkey Brain:

Gary "U.S." Bonds, "Out of Work"?
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:20pm HotRod:

Who needs sleep when you have WFMU?
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:23pm Cecile:

I wonder if the Internet put the unemployed sweetheart out of work, too? ;)
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:23pm Tom (The Bactrian Support Network):

Yes we have music and each other, I am also one of those Welfare Recipients for now anywho...
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:24pm Cecile:

I LOVE Bob Newhart. LOVE.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:25pm Cecile:

THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR the AC/DC. or the Seedies as some call them.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:26pm Tom (The Bactrian Support Network):

AC/DC should have been Categorized as punk back in the day.. why Metal beyond me ....
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:27pm Tom (The Bactrian Support Network):

Pat Duncan & Billy Kelly - there are Paralells ..
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:27pm R. P.:

"Do They Owe Us a Living?" Maybe Jeffrey Lewis' cover.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:28pm Cecile:

There are a lot of metal heads who love them, but don't consider them metal, more like hard blues rock.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:29pm Cecile:

  Mon. 10/13/08 1:30pm Cecile:

thank you so much again
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:31pm paw:

ac/dc? really?

  Mon. 10/13/08 1:31pm Sean Daily:

Gods, I love "Hallelujah I'm a Bum".
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:31pm (mta) Tony:

Great Gary U.S. Bonds "Out of Work" suggestion...

Can ANYONE tell me if any swag's been mailed out since last Marathon? Just wondering...
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:32pm detroitdave:

Harry mcClintock RULES the roost!!
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:33pm Cecile:

I got swag about five weeks ago, Tony.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:37pm Jeff M:

Great show -- it's got a cool collaborative energy. Which is not to imply there's anything inferior about a classic solo Liz show, but it's just fascinating how when you kids are both there in the studio, there's a distinct feel.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:37pm (mta) Tony:

Thank you, Cecile, for letting me know they are being sent and they are in fact a bit behind, I presume due to Maegan's departure.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:38pm Cecile:

I would still drop a line inquiring about it, never hurts.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:38pm geoffrey:

earnst stoneman
all i gots gone
it son the internet archive its a good unemployment/loss song
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:41pm Cecile:

you should also mash up some eHarmony commercials in there, too...
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:43pm Cecile:

Oh - Merle Haggard - If We Make It Through December
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:44pm (mta) Tony:

Thank you, Cecile, for your good recommendation.
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:57pm Cecile:

GoF is always the right answer
  Mon. 10/13/08 1:58pm Jeff M:

This track (the B12 one) puts me in mind of some stuff on the vocal-less disc from Pinch's Underwater Dancehall. Except now it's not the current track anymore. Never mind.
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:14pm Jeff M:

Okay, a track whose energy is much lower than some recent things you've been playing (kinds draggy, in fact) but whose title is a darned fine thematic match is:

Poverty (Once Upon A Time in America) from John Zorn's "The Big Gundown".
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:16pm Jeff M:

kinda, I mean. Not kinds.
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:23pm Cecile:

I am holding out for the Death Magnetic remastering. You know, mixing it like it should have been mixed in the first place.
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:25pm Cecile:

geez, let me get into it before you fast forward it ADD people...;D
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:25pm Beth:

Hey stop talking over the Metallica. I haven't heard it yet, so it would be nice to not have the critical chatter over.
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:26pm Ike:

Thank you for reminding me that Metallica is mind-bogglingly lame, pathetic, and boring.
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:26pm Scott:

You have to laugh like Beavis and Butthead while listening to Metallica
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:27pm SJ:

Sounds like they pasted the same snare hit over every beat too..another insidious modern production technique.
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:27pm Cecile:

Hey, A3 has slow bits, too. You should fast forward thru them...

I cut Metallica so much slack for making Master of Puppets. Still. I am pathetic, as well.
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:29pm Liz B.:

Ha ha, sorry for the Metallica ADD, it's just that a band like Death Comes Along does the slow buildup to rocking finish much better.
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:31pm Cecile:

now, play some witchcraft....
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:32pm Jeff M:

Bob Katz is a pretty well-respected mastering engineer who often writes about the excessive compression problem these days. He has some articles at his site (some kind of technical), and he has his own "honor roll" he maintains of those now-rare releases which DON'T suck due to over-compression:

  Mon. 10/13/08 2:38pm stingy d:

i think i hate yo la tengo for personal reasons unrelated to personal reasons if you know what i mean
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:39pm Cecile:

stingy, hunh?
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:41pm stingy d:

yo la tengo bites
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:41pm Liz B.:

Lay off YLT for a sec and rock out! Thanks for the link, Jeff!
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:42pm there i saidf it!:

this gunsligners track is 1,000 megagrams of pain!!!!!!
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:43pm stingy d:

yo liz... but i did.
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:43pm Cecile:

why are we bringing up yo la tengo? Do they have something to do with Hey Colossus?
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:46pm stingy d:

i brought up yo la tengo, cus i was gona and whatever, and then i came back, and i was here and everything, and i looked at the playlist so far and everything, and i saw that that dumb yo la tengo track got played and everythign, and i came to the conclusion that i don't them and whatever, earlier today or something.
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:47pm Jeff M:

I could totally see Bill Zurat playing this Matmos track during an overnight.
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:48pm Cecile:

Oh, I gotcha now.
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:50pm stingy d:

on the positive side... gunslinger beat the shit out of everything... and that matmos song was really cool, and i like (you) liz berg
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:50pm detroitdave:

Yeah, Sic Alps...........Woo Hoo!
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:50pm gunslinger:

  Mon. 10/13/08 2:53pm Agent R:

Hi -- Lovin' this. Thanks.
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:54pm detroitdave:

Liz hit the groove...........but only 6 mins to go :(
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:55pm Agent R:

D is for drums!
  Mon. 10/13/08 2:56pm stingy d:
