Listener comments!

  Thu. 2/12/09 12:01pm Sean Daily:

First comment for a change! Woo hoo!
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:03pm Bryant:

W00t, Mekons!
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:07pm postmanpaul:

Bow Wow Wow, Wow!
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:08pm Jimmy Safechuck:

Sun Sea & Piracy: I love Somali music.
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:08pm Hugo:

Woo hoo too yoo, too!
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:10pm Megan:

bock bock bock bock!
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:12pm Scott:

I accept your criticism Megan,and it was nice to see you last night too, you were a real scream!
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:13pm Sean Daily:

You've made me a very happy freak this morning, Scott.
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:15pm Hugo:

Not THE Megan?
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:33pm Scott:

Yes Hugo, that was THE Megan
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:37pm Cecile:

Scott, did they ever reissue the Rotary Connection with Black Gold on the Sun on it?
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:40pm Scott:

Sorry Cecile, I have no idea.
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:42pm Hugo:

In that case, all the best from me and the kid. Kid? He's outgrowing me! BTW, he's worn out his WFMU t-shirt, so he may need a new one ...
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:44pm dale:

we don't get enuf polka on fmu
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:47pm PMD:

Hi Scott. I could really use a beer.
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:49pm Cecile:

I could use a hearing of Cardiac Atlas from June of '44...
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:51pm Cecile:

One of the weirdest, most oblique love songs ever.
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:54pm matt:

im really loving your selections ta!
  Thu. 2/12/09 12:59pm Webhamster Henry:

Sta Sera Mi Butto!

  Thu. 2/12/09 1:01pm Red:

God bless Brazilian Rock! Sugest you Tom Zé! ;)
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:03pm Hugo:

I did get to see Hawkwind when Lemmy was still in the band. They had a female dancer at the time who would actually dance in the nude in the midst of multi-coloured strobe lights. Psychedelic silver machine, maaan!!
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:04pm c:

This album (and guitar playing) has completely killed me. Is there anything else out there like it? From my limited knowledge of CV, it was a bit of a departure. Does Pedro Za or anyone else play stuff like this? It's like rock music that's matured. The lyrics are so cool too. What does "being a rat" mean in Portugese?
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:10pm Lovich:

We want more Hawkwind tribute...
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:10pm Cecile:

I saw Hawkwind in a less exciting era. The dancer mimed being a swimmer and jumping off a diving board. She wore a swimsuit and a swimming cap.

Guess they were getting old.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:11pm J-Mar:

A musica tudo legal! Tem Antonio Carlos e Jocafi?
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:12pm Scott:

Ohhh Hugo, of course you mean the ever amazing Stacia!! She's still out there, I believe selling art & raising her kids in Germany. C, Caetano Veloso is a killer - while a lot of his mid-70s and 80s records were a little MPB for my taste, he's just the classest act - why he isn't president of the world, I'll never know. Check out -all- of the records he made between 1967 and 1973, esp (since you dig the guitar stuff) Araca Azul and the 1969 s/t one
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:13pm postmanpaul:

scott - these are sets amongst sets. wonderful, just woderful.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:14pm C:

Awesome, thanks Scott. Great to know where to start. It was a bit daunting.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:14pm postmanpaul:

  Thu. 2/12/09 1:15pm Cecile:

rrrrrrrrrrr cat stevens. I mute now.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:16pm dale:

I love the upbeat jauntiness of 'I'm gonna get me a gun". makes revenge killing sound like a trip to an amusement park.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:16pm Cecile:

money track!
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:16pm dc pat:

was he talking about Salman Rushdie?
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:16pm Leon Trotsky:

Ah, Scott, Anything Could Happen. Just what the doctor ordered.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:17pm Listener Greg:

I really only want to get a girlfriend so I can start a mix CD off with this song. After that, who knows.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:17pm Hugo:

Speaking of Hawkwind, I once sought out the Mountain Grill which was a regular hangout and had an album named after it (no direct reference to Grieg apparently) . It was up on Portobello Road, just before the overpass, for those who know the area. The food was unspectacular, run by a Greek couple, I believe. Long gone now, of course.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:19pm Murray Van Creme:

Cat Stevens?? Sounds like a Zappa-esque twisting of a commercial jingle.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:20pm Scott:

Hey Hugo, was it as unspectacular as the album? That fucker caused me no end of grief - like could I really bring myself to get rid of a Hawkwind album? I did it, it was actually pretty easy - and I got a whole blog post out of it!
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:28pm Hugo:

Yes, it was.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:29pm nyc:

YES YES YES. 'Wicked Game' is the best pop song ever penned, and playing it right out of Prurient was ace!
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:30pm joe:

hah, that transition from prurient to chris issac was classic.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:31pm annie:

i'm sorry to say this but i love this song....... even with talking over it.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:32pm Scott:

Sorry?? Why sorry? This song is amazing, I love it
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:33pm annie:

so pop-ee. it must be the guitar work.. i do love it.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:35pm megan:

LOL, thank you Scott. I was happy to get to see you and the family in person. And, I'm so flattered to be considered THE anything, especially by THE Hugo! Hope life in Norway is treating you well, my friend! :-)
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:35pm Hugo:

On long-gone, is there anything left of that place CBGS's used to be in? I couldn't find it last year (though I did manage to grab a beer and a t-shirt when it was still open back in 06).
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:36pm jwm:

hey wait! is that the paul slocum of DFW? And/or, Tree Wave, etc?
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:39pm christine:

it is! He's also my gallerist at And/or Gallery in Dallas. great guy!
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:43pm Hugo:

Yes, THE Megan! Snowy and wintery over here. All the best from me and the kid! He's growing and growing and needs a new WFMU t-shirt! The old one's worn out.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:45pm jwm:

thanks anyway! if its the same slocum, you should check out his band tree wave. dot matrix printer used as a musical instrument = rad.
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:45pm jwm:

thanks christine
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:50pm megan:

awww! i hope he is still listening to his cassette tapes, too. he was so fascinated by them! and there will be a brand new t-shirt design for this year's marathon, of course, to fit his growing frame! yay! :-)
  Thu. 2/12/09 1:55pm dc pat:

yes, more soundtracks..
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:04pm Hugo:

To him, cassettes are THE THING! The fewer the copies, the better. Preferably made by very underground Japanese artists. Or very very underground American artists. Not more than 100 copies. And it has to be low-fi ...
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:08pm Benjamin:

I am listening in the office in England. I wouldn't normally be here but have got snowed in and am being put in in a local hotel by my employer, which I will go to later. Am enjoying the eclectic mix of music.
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:10pm dc pat:

wtf?? it's like 60 degrees here in DC!! WHY CAN'T WE HAVE SNOW?????
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:23pm stingy d:

ah shit, was just listening, didn't realize that was harry dean stanton. he's my favorite person that i share birthday's with. keep going scott!
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:26pm annie:

stingy, you truly have an auspicious connection, then, he rocks.. and i love it when he sings.
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:30pm giraffe-o:

Sweet - can't think of a better mashup than Crim & Paul Harvey. Well, can't think of one right this second.
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:31pm dc pat:

Scott, little issue: shouldn't it be King Crimson w/ Paul Harvey on the same line as this is, technically, one song??
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:32pm stingy d:

i got ingmar bergman too... but i have no opinion of that fella. also woody guthrie.
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:36pm dc pat:

I got my own dad.
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:37pm annie:

i share with his holiness the dalai lama and john paul jones and (george bush)
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:41pm Hugo:

I downloaded a full concert of Robyn Hitchcock doing Syd covers. Kinda obvious when you think about it - he's really the right one for that ...
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:48pm stingy d:

jesus christ man... why don't they just tell the kids that the fire engine is gonna make some type of sound and stick to it. that was agonizing.
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:48pm dc pat:

..well what happened?? How did they fix the freakin problem???
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:54pm dc pat:

ah...thank god! [listening with hands folded on lap...]
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:55pm Jimmy Safechuck:

These people were stupid. Why didn't they just buy a siren and get it over with? Jeez?
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:56pm just a guy:

I knew a cat would have something to do with it.

Holy shit someone should tell them that thats actually a man in a cat suit.
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:56pm Leon Trotsky:

George W. Bush hails from Oakdale, non?
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:57pm dc pat:

eh, what a let down...
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:57pm Ike:

That was the lamest attempt a meow EVER. Ha!
  Thu. 2/12/09 2:59pm Jimmy Safechuck:

Crunchy Frog has the meow DOWN, however.
  Thu. 2/12/09 3:00pm Boz Scaggs:

I have the dirty meowdown.
  Mon. 3/27/17 12:37pm Cal Carter jr:

My Dad Cal Carter Sr. Wrote "I got jealous one time too often '" on this playlist. I was excited to see it and hear a slice of it here. He has passed away and it was nice to hear it.
We were from Canonsburg, Pa and this song was once offered to Bobby Vinton from Canonsburg. Also Perry Como and the 4 coins were from there. Canonsburg has the most recordings come out of a small town American town. I have a couple myself. Thank you, Cal jr.
