  Sun. 12/21/08 6:10am H├ęctor:

Rocket 88, great!
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:13am meghan:

Hey there Hector! Glad you like it
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:27am paulthepostman:

Wow Meghan, you're not slow at the lights are you! Your playlist is ahead of us, will we ever catch up?!
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:30am paulthepostman:

...bowie always crashing in the same car maybe?
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:31am meghan:

ha.... remember 7 sec delay

I thought of bowie... but a little slow... for my playlist... hehe
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:32am paulthepostman:

...nothin' wrong, mind, with what's goin' down, nothin' at all!
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:33am Anne:

incrdedible guitarplaying by the reverend horton heat!
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:33am paulthepostman:

hehe
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:34am meghan:

hehe
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:36am paulthepostman:

hoho
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:42am Anne:

Yo, the Golden Earring! I'm from Holland! the first live band I ever saw!
sniff..
(why do they make those math questions so difficult..?)
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:43am Meghan:

Nice... glad you are listening Anne! and i agree... math is not happening for me either!
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:46am Anne:

love the station, love the music! internet radio rocks!
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:47am Rob W:

I wonder if Golden Earring likes frites with curry sauce, brown bars and spicy Indonesian takeout as much as I do? P.S. - I can help with the math if necessary.
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:48am molerat:

Nice, energetic Sunday morning set.

Might not fit the straight-up rock mood, but Three Johns' "King Car," maybe?
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:49am Rob W:

PS - Meghan, do you know the song by Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel, Make Me Smile - ? We have it on vinyl at FMU! Kinda would fit in here - but don't let me influence you...
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:50am Anne:

it;s just the numbers above 100 that make me sweat..
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:50am jeff:

How about "cars and girls" by the DICTATORS ??
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:52am Anne:

Ah! make me smile.. brilliant song!
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:52am Rob W:

Re: My request: I forgot - gotta keep to car songs. Save my suggestion for another glammy set! As for numbers over 100, well that's not bad. You know there are a few traditional societies around that count this way: 1, 2, MANY - as in, 2 is as far as they go! So you could do worse...
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:55am cosmic:

meghan, how about motor city is burning by the mc5?? huh?

morning evereybody!
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:56am Mutt:

"Small Car" by the legendary Marvin Pontiac (John Lurie).
  Sun. 12/21/08 6:57am Anne:

OK, so it's carsongs. I'm in love with my car by Queen?
and euh Meghan, it's 1 PM right here in Amsterdam, Holland, so I'm already halfway the day. As a matter of fact, I'm kinda halfway my life as well.. (knock, knock)
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:02am Meghan:

Man... where were all of you last night when i was having a space out on car songs! Thanks for the requests.... I'll see what i can do.... can't guarentee.. but will put them in the NEXT car show!
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:05am tombom:

swervedriver has a load of car songs. and a train song, as well!
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:08am cosmic:

yeah buzzcocks!! dont look at this link then meghan http://www.catechnologies.com/blog/carsongs.html
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:13am Meghan:

I actually looked at that link last night... so many songs... had to pull it together in about a couple hours... but thanks!
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:14am john:

The daily double would have been Blue Thunder by Galaxie 500, a car song by a band named for a car. Just sayin'.
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:16am Meghan:

Oh i looked at it too.... i LOVE Galaxie 500! i have that song with the sax and without...i figured that was a stretch...
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:19am Mutt:

"Middle of the Road" by the Pretenders- a great driving tune. "Mercury" by David Lindley.
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:19am john:

No stretch at all, it's about Dean's car! Although to be sure, every rock song with sax is a stretch. I like the sax-free version, which may say something about me. Or not.
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:21am cosmic:

i think youre doing a great job!
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:21am Meghan:

ha.... i just was obsessed with them. I got singles and what not. Read Dean's book? Reall good.

Thanks Cosmic!
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:25am john:

I mean, it's no Dodge Veg-O-Matic, but then what is? I like it a lot! I was a big fan too, and I did read the book, and Damon and Naomi's reaction to it. I'm on their side.

And yes, fun show, wish I hadn't just tuned in ten minutes ago!
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:26am Meghan:

ahhh that is the joy of the archives.... to relive the madness
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:29am tombom:

help me, what was their reaction to it
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:30am cosmic:

no thank you! theres something more magical when its happening right now though. even if it is lunchtime here!
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:31am tombom:

ride? awesome. i'm not sure if it's about cars though, if you get my meaning !!!!
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:32am meghan:

hehe... yeah neither was the violent femmes either....if you catch my drift...
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:36am john:

Kitchens of Distinction! You're pillaging my record collection!
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:41am tokindaddy:

great show this morning, meghan, been listening since 5am, and I haven't heard one I didnt like
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:41am Meghan:

HA! actually pillaging MINE! but glad you have similar taste!
  Sun. 12/21/08 7:45am john:

I don't know--Drivin' Sister? Under My Wheels? I thought I heard noise down the hall a few hours ago...now if you were playing the Gainsbourg/Jane Birkin version of Ford Mustang, I'd be contacting law enforcement...
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:03am tombom:

did i hear you right? a themed show on... bells?
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:04am Meghan:

Yep.... songs with bells in them... songs with bells in the title....
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:08am john:

Ah, I was hoping you'd come to the Best. Rock. Song. Ever. and there you go!
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:09am tombom:

wow, pretty esoteric. swirlies-bell, cardiacs-bell clinks/bell stink, the who-bell boy, mazzy star- bells ring, jethro tull-ring out solistice bells, olivia tremor control-tropical bells. there's a few. also this song is good.
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:10am Meghan:

hehe... all in due time John... all in due time
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:11am Meghan:

ohhh thanks Tombom... I will note all those! and try to find them!
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:14am john:

Nah, you just nailed that one, unless you were talking about Tom Robinson's 2-4-6-8 Motorway. Still all begins and ends with Roadrunner for me!

Suggestions for the next show are at present rattling about in the caverns of my mind.
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:14am Komack:

Sounds like a good show so far
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:14am john:

Unless of course you meant "Chevy Van." Cos that's all right with me.
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:15am Meghan:

KOMACK!!! hello!

Ahh John... looked at that one too! Get out of my MIND!
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:17am Komack:

this time zone difference is killin me!
you got some good songs on there
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:21am - B:

Dickies 'Manny, Moe, and Jack?'
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:25am john:

Well, there's the Flamin' Groovies Teenage Head, but that's another one of those that's only nominally about cars. Another daily double, The Barracudas' "I Want My Woodie Back." Don't be filthy, kids.

Dammit, I was thinking about GTO! Now it's your turn to get out MY mind!
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:28am Komack:

ROFL! sounds like me after a few bottles of wine
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:36am john:

I swear to you I was just typing Car Song too, but I was thinking Elizabeth Mitchell's kiddie version. I'm pretty sure my brain waves are being monitored through the fillings in my teeth. Where's that lead hat?

Oh, and my absolute last thought (promise) because requests are annoying--Johnny Cash's One Piece At A Time.
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:39am Meghan:

only got a few more minutes... so i have it planned out... but haven't seen the next dj yet... so if i go over.. ALL REQUESTS! HA!
  Sun. 12/21/08 8:57am Komack:

Great Show! See Ya later
  Thu. 3/18/10 3:46am Miss Mary Peterpuffer:

YEA!...You Forgot to Play Sunday Driving...By Jerry Lewis.
