Good day.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:02am m p:

i love ivor cutler.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:04am pm:

Ivor cutler, a member of the ancient philosophical school of Stoicism if ever there was one! Saw him in Greenwich UK once upon a time.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:05am Bad Ronald:

Guten Morgan Herr Ken - et al!!!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:07am Ken:

Guten Morgen all, I have about 5 times as many 45s as I will have time to play.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:07am ?:

First time commentator, long time listener. The IBC 7"is one of my all time favorites. Thanks Ken.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:08am GP:

  Wed. 10/22/08 9:09am Bad Ronald:

Morning GP
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:10am Brian C.:

Whoever thought of the only playing 45s is a genius! We love to have our DJs suffer for their art. But speaking of art, I guess no time for photos on the playlist?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:11am Ypsi:

Greetings, potentates!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:11am Ken:

Yeah sorry, taking the week off of photos so I can concentrate more on the shorter songs...
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:14am Negator:

Hello, Ken.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:14am Negator:

This is Larry.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:15am Negator:

Does your ship have a crow's nest?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:15am john from oslo:

The 45 is an excellent format!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:16am Lizardner Dave:

Morning. Is it still Rocktober?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:17am pm:

  Wed. 10/22/08 9:17am JCityJensen:

Guten Atoning Morgen Ken!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:17am Negator:

Yeah,Ken, 45's have been great so far. Been really enjoying it!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:17am paul:

is kenny g just gonna play a lock groove off a 45 for 3 hours?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:18am JCityJensen:

Will there be a 78 special from a kayak soon?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:19am GP:

YES....do the 78's on a wind up Victrola on the boat.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:20am Bad Ronald:

Begin with PUNK!!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:21am Negator:

Do you have a stack of gay gene Alexander Julian 7" in there? Pastel plaids?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:22am Parq:

I spend 15 minutes booting up my crummy old laptop (the bride has the good one), only to find I'm six hours behind on comments. Let it roar, chief!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:23am john from oslo:

Any chance for a green or maybe a red 45?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:23am GP:

Now howzabout some of the actual Sonics?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:24am Lizardner Dave:

Oh God, corn weenie isn't a 7", is it? Too late, it's already in my head!

On the ceiling!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:24am Ken:

A green seven inch coming up!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:25am Bad Ronald:

Prove it!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:25am Ypsi:

Hell yeah, go Michigan.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:26am Ken:

Hello Ypsitucky!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:27am john from oslo:

Oh by golly - those green 7" are soooo groovy!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:27am Ypsi:

Hey now.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:28am Ken:

That's OK Ypsi - That's what they called it when I worked there, at WEMU.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:30am Ypsi:

I lived in AA for a while but got sick of all the entitled assholes. Ypsi rocks. Have you been back by recently?

WCBN is still awesome but they need a new mic. And they air that awful Amy Goodman program.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:30am Billy jam:

This and every seven inch record (Singles Going Steady) WFMU show this week have been really really enjoyable. Major props to Mike Lupica for the idea!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:31am Bad Ronald:

I concur Mr. Jam - Can't wait for your slot...
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:36am Billy Jam:

PS the only seven inch single that didn't do it for me was the fourth one played by Ken this morning by Nodzzz because I think it sends a negative message -:)
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:36am dc pat:

Love the music this week. It's like watching only black and white movies. Beautiful.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:37am Cecile:

Hey, I'm a former WCBNer.
I left AA because NO JOBS.
I remember Ken well!
Radio minus one!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:38am Cecile:

hell, i missed City Slang. BAHHHHHH

The Fall did some killer singles, got any around?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:38am Ken:

Hi Cecile! Wow!! Radio Minus One... I left Ann Arbor because I knew if I didnt leave then (1982), then I would still be there now!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:39am GP:

Cecile, Ken,

Zingermans delivers if you miss that place
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:40am dc pat:

YES, Kill for Peace!!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:40am Cecile:

LOL! I kind of had to do that, too.

Ypsi, AA is weird. Some things are the same like ZIngers (I order from them a lot), and my former employer Wazoo Records, but there's a lot of chain weirdness in that town now. Feels different.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:40am Bad Ronald:

THE FUGS ARE KILLIN IT!!!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:40am Ypsi:

Zingerman's is pretty overrated if you ask me. I'm happy for them and everything, but $18 for a reuben?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:41am Negator:

Did DK cover this Kill for Peace song?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:42am GP:

10-4 on that Ypsi, still, they do make a pretty fine sandwich, but only if you have an AA income!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:43am Cecile:

I love their food, but I wait for sales. and ask for the Magic Brownies for Christmas.
Yeah, I get sticker shock there. It was spendy even back then. Still, them brownies.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:43am dc pat:

Man, Negator, I don't think so but they should have!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:44am Cecile:

you know it totally informed "Kill the Poor" The DKs are definitely their spiritual descendants.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:44am Richard:

oh man, between The Fugs and that John Dowie track, this show is on fire!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:44am Diggzoid:

Ken, What happened to the old vote for anything page?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:45am john from oslo:

Candyman!!!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:45am Ypsi:

This one? http://wfmu.org/cgi-bin/vfa.pl
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:46am Cecile:

OH! Ken, do you have the Cult Heroes?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:46am Bad Ronald:

Hey Ken can you follow Sammy with the Dickies "Where'd His Eye Go"? PLEASE
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:46am Negator:

Candy Man?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:46am Gigantor:

just because they are singles doesn't mean you have to play 'em at 45!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:47am Cecile:

Ken, do the old WCBN thing and speed it up to 1,000,000 RPM...
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:48am Ypsi:

Also, Ypsi has way better bands than Ann Arbor. And there's no good place to play in AA either.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:48am Diggzoid:

Speaking of Michigan Ken, did you know the DJ Michigan Mom, she was always on the Case Western station in Cleveland. Boy was she obsessed w/ Howard Devoto! Anyone know if she's still DJing?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:48am Barney:

Straight-edge a capella (the only kind I like, besides dokaka)
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:48am Ken`:

Forgot the Cult Heroes, or the Cunteeros, as we used to call them!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:48am Negator:

Jud Jud is early Zatumba?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:49am Ghengis Jung:

This is brilliant!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:49am Cecile:

LOL! Yeah, American Sto-RAY
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:49am Bad Ronald:

Isn't Iggy from AA?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:50am Ypsi:

Iggy's from Ypsilanti. As is Phyllis Diller.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:50am barney:

Play the Xback-masking songX! (please?)
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:51am Diggzoid:

no Ypsi, the one w/ 100,000s of votes on it.... This has been rigged folks don't trust the Diebold/FMU tyrants!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:51am Cecile:

Pittsfield Township.
Between Ypsi and AA

He used to work at a store I worked at - about 16 yrs before.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:51am Negator:

Jud Jud is Zatumba before he sold out right? Early 80's Zatumba when he had a partner and did drugs, eh?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:52am Cecile:

I thought Pittsfield Twp. Oh, well. Close enough.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:53am Bad Ronald:

Did any of you ever catch an Iguanas show out there?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:53am Jacob:

it's the ACAPOCALYPSE! NOOOOOOOOOO!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:54am Cecile:

I was like five, so unfortunately no.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:54am Bad Ronald:

I figured as much but just thought I'd ask... tx
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:55am Lizardner Dave:

No Jacob, it's just Apocalyptober!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:55am Cecile:

I wish, though.
I don't even think he came through more than once the whole six years I lived there.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:55am wha?:

Plastic Dan...
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:56am paul:

i was wondering if it was possible for steely dan to make me feel even more nauseous. now i know!
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:57am fishmonkeystew:

WFMU continuously renews my faith in music and radio in general. 45's forever!!! Thanks, Ken. So far, this has been my favorite week on WFMU since I started listening about a year ago. And I used to think that radio sucked. Who knew?
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:58am Ypsi:

When I was on WBNY someone called and got all histrionic at me for taking off songs halfway through.
  Wed. 10/22/08 9:58am sloane:

How is it that we can recognize "Back Jack" from the very first beat even when it's at such a fucked up speed? Is this a beneficial ability?
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:01am Bad Ronald:

synchronicity
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:01am R. P.:

It's like "name that tune," I've known people that could identify huge numbers of songs from the first few notes or beats. It's an ability some have developed better than others.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:02am Cecile:

it's the magic of Michael McDonald and his magic organ. Then he went on to make the Doobie Brothers worse, I mean magic.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:07am Lou:

Hey GM Freedman Man...you read my mind!
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:07am ?:

It's hard to get any work done with a show this good.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:09am Ken:

Vote For Anything is back up and Zatumba and Larry could use some love:

http://wfmu.org/cgi-bin/vfa.pl

Just sayin...

  Wed. 10/22/08 10:13am Cecile:

  Wed. 10/22/08 10:14am Bad Ronald:

The Jimmy Castor Bunch did rule!
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:15am bb:

took me more than 3 notes to remember what te jimmy castor bunch song was..
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:15am Negator:

My uncle used to sing that song to me in the 70's when I was a kid. Then Uncle Jay went to jail for a long time....
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:16am jan:

Hey Ken- ya gonna play apache by Jorgen what's his last name. You are the only dj that I had heard play that since the 60's, I'd guess.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:17am JCityJensen:

  Wed. 10/22/08 10:18am GP:

  Wed. 10/22/08 10:19am Cecile:

TTC also = trying to conceive in Interweb talk
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:19am Negator:

Me too, GP. My friends used to call me a queer for liking Tom Tom Club more than Maiden.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:20am Negator:

I guess I was wearing alot of make-up at the time
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:22am GP:

Negator, screw them...I'd rather hang out with the Talking Heads any day..
Cecile..DID not know that one..too funny.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:25am GP:

Ahhhh....Henny.....This is some funny shiznit.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:26am JCityJensen:

  Wed. 10/22/08 10:27am Cecile:

ah, nothing says AA in the early 80s like Atomic Dog
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:27am fishmonkeystew:

Speaking of the Talking Heads, I just got tickets to see David Byrne and Brian Eno at the Calvin Theater in Northampton, MA in December. Wooooohoooo!
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:27am Parq:

Take my funk, please.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:28am Negator:

I was at a wedding recently and the DJ spun 'Atomic Dog'. The place went crazy! I saw a lady dancing in a leg cast! As for myself, I got stoopid old school....
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:28am Bad Ronald:

Ha Parq!
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:28am GP:

This is my daughters favorite song. I have it on vinyl and its almost worn out.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:29am Ike:

All right! "Atomic Dog!" Yeah!

Negator, now *that* is a decent wedding DJ. And that's rare.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:29am annie:

  Wed. 10/22/08 10:30am annie:

  Wed. 10/22/08 10:33am Mark:

I'm afraid that Mr Eno is not touring with David Byrne
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:33am R. P.:

Is Eno playing this tour, or is it just David Byrne?
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:34am Faust Gertz:

Request for 'Eugene Goes To School' by Crazy Joe & The Variable Speed Band
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:34am R. P.:

It looks like my question was answered before I even asked it.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:35am GP:

  Wed. 10/22/08 10:35am paul:

Oh, Magoo, you've done it again!
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:42am Wendy del Formaggio:

Oh goodness. Jim Backus sounds so creepy on this record.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:43am Vivian:

Mr. Howell is creeping me out..Where is Lovey to keep him in line?
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:44am Cecile:

  Wed. 10/22/08 10:44am Parq:

Oh LSD, you've done it again.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:46am GP:

Dang Ken, Are you having a breakfast buffet up there? This is going to be the longest play-list ever.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:47am Cecile:

And girls, and boys, this song is why absinthe was outlawed for so long....
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:48am annie:

cecile, we have an absinthe brewer here in upstae and boy is it delicious
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:50am fishmonkeystew:

Good call, Mark, Mr. Eno is not touring with David Byrne-I got ahead of myself a little. But a David Byrne show nonetheless! He is on my list of performers I must see before I die. Now only if Tom Waits would come a little closer to Connecticut.....
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:50am Cecile:

My friend used to brew it as well. I will have to try it someday.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:51am Bad Ronald:

I never had either but sure would like too...
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:52am Ken:

How many songs we up to?
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:52am annie:

  Wed. 10/22/08 10:53am Parq:

I've never had either, but I have had ether. Whoa. (Come . . . back . . . here . . . you . . . rab- . . . -bit . . .)

  Wed. 10/22/08 10:55am Mark:

Tom Waits rigourously avoids CT.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:55am Bad Ronald:

Hah Parq, I love Bugs Bunny!!
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:56am paul:

funny... i'm from CT and i rigourously avoid tom waits.
  Wed. 10/22/08 10:57am Keili:

Awesome Show! I'll see you in a little while!
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:00am Mort:

Did you ever hear the Notwist's first album from like 1991? Hariy metal-grunge stuff. That group switched their sound and style more time than Moby or Madonna.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:00am Ypsi:

I just heard it recently on FMU. I had heard that they had sounded like that, but I had no idea of the extent.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:02am R. P.:

Fishmonkeystew - it will never beat the Fear of Music tour. But have fun, anyway. I'm thinking of getting tickets for the DC show.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:02am heaven:

"Sparky" sounds good. And you can't go wrong with "Bind Man's Thingy".
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:05am Torbjørn from Haugesund:

Faust .. and then Can! .. Let's go all Krautrock 45's!
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:06am Bad Ronald:

Sex Bomb Baby!
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:07am GP:

mmmmmmm, Mariah Carey, believe it or not all of my Metal band mates absolutely LOVE her, and not in an ironic way,...but I really think it is more HER than her music.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:07am bear swamp:

some grizzly adams
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:08am Bad Ronald:

I love her cuz she's as nutty as a fruitcake!
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:08am GP:

10-4 on that Bad Ronald
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:10am Ypsi:

I always want there to be more things played backwards. Do your turntables go backwards? Playing a shitty top-40 song backwards cancels out one spin of said record on top-40 radio, you know.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:11am GP:

Another song added to the "gotta find it" list.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:12am m p:

play one of the 2 Stax 45's you brought along.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:17am Timbo:

Jesus & Mary Chain ?
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:17am Cecile:

SINGLE GENERIC FLIPPER please.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:18am Parq:

GP, whenever I've looked at a cheesecake photo of Mariah, I've always shaken my head in wonder. Apparently, I'm supposed to say, "Oh my God, looking at a woman like that makes me want to . . . want to . . . listen to her sing!!"
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:19am Wendy del Formaggio:

Now I know why they call it the "dump" button. Har har.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:21am GP:

  Wed. 10/22/08 11:23am g:

no joke, this is the first time I've heard a Mariah Carey song. Never thought it would be on FMU. . . Thanks, Ken. Thanks a lot.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:23am bb:

a friend of mine used to work in a&r at arista and has a great story about mariah emrging from the elevator around the holiday time carrying a lamb and trailing another 2 behind her. these wre evidently gifts for her sales team...
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:24am Cecile:

I actually like that one Christmas song she did.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:24am Megan:

Ho-ly shit. I am transported back to high school!!!!! Is this from your personal record collection Ken?!?!?
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:24am Kirk:

atone with 'http://www.khaaan.com/'
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:24am Parq:

You'll notice he played that one in its entirety. Oh Ken, you rascal.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:24am Cecile:

FLIPPERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:25am Ken:

Yep, I own that Mariah single... not sure why! But I genuinely, unironically like it.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:25am JCityJensen:

Thanks for the atonement via fLiPpEr¡
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:25am GP:

Flipper ......cool
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:26am Cecile:

this actually sounds really slick for Flipper. And a little sane.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:26am Bad Ronald:

tx for the flipper man.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:29am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!

Live version of "Puppet" in Urgh. Always dug the line "Chained to the wall for maximum hold".
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:37am Mark:

perfect segue Echo & the Bunnymen to Teardrop explodes
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:37am Lou:

Can you play Big In Japan next?
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:38am Elizabeth:

Any 80's XTC - "Big Fire" ?
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:42am -max-:

Great show, thanks Ken! And I'm somewhat surprised at how the time has flown by - only 20 minutes left.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:42am Vicki:

ah yes, GP - saw that on the fmu blog the other day! My favourite A-ha songs are the cover versions by both Rank Sinatra and also Dictionaraoke. Not that anybody cares
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:42am Bad Ronald:

Yeah Marie Psych Furs! - "President Gas"
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:42am R. P.:

In Northeastern Pennsylvania, a.k.a. The Land That Time Forgot, they would STILL refer to this music as "that New Wave crap".
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:45am Ike:

Is this a 33 rpm Stereolab 7" played at 45? I like this much better than most Stereolab songs.

Ken has played that Mariah track before. A few times. Parq, agreed on Mariah. Mmmm, cheesecake.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:45am GP:

Vicki that is cool.I can get the FMU music stream but not the blog at my office so I did not see that they had posted it. Weird stuff indeed

"Behind the curtain, she'd let out a scream—just loud enough to start her own engine—and stamp her foot, once. Then she'd yank open the curtain and step into the light."
Fever, The Life and Music of Miss Peggy Lee by Peter Richmond

John, I think you might be surprised to hear those sentiments expressed in many other regions as well!

"You'd like me better if I peroxided my hair like your mother"?

Shudder...

ARRARAGHGGHGHGHH!!!!!!!! Ken! NO!!!!
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:54am Bruce:

Thanks for IDing that. I didn't know it was Linda Laurie who did Ambrose Part 5. Nice!
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:54am Andy in Berlin:

what IS that "just keep walking" song?! I've heard it before, but ....wha??
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:54am Cecile:

Did Walter Brennan grow up as a Dickensian street urchin?
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:55am Lou:

is this a Spiritualized cover?
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:55am GP:

Sean...yeah I know.....
That reminded of some of Miranda July's stuff. So creepy that you have to keep listening

My new theme song...I'm printing this on a T-shirt
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:58am Sean Daily:

I like this Tim Wilson song, and I haven't even heard a minute of it. Any love song named "Help Me Find Jimmy Hoffa" appeals to me.
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:58am Ghengis Jung:

wow
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:58am Bruce:

Thanks Ken. Great show. Gotta go buy me a color telephone...
  Wed. 10/22/08 11:59am Cecile:

this Jimmy Hoffa song is amazing.

Oh, what a grand finale!

I need to know what happened to Ambrose! I GOTS TO KNOW!!!!!
  Thu. 10/23/08 1:43pm Jeff M:

Holy crap, I totally remember "Troglodyte" from back in the day. I don't remember who was playing it, but I heard it a lot. Was it actually being played on mainstream commercial radio, I mean not necessarily even in the novelty-song ghetto?
  Fri. 10/24/08 12:18pm Jeff M:

Damn and blast. I woke up this morning with "McCain-Palin Tradition" running through my head, and that's so many kinds of wrong I can't count them all.
