  Wed. 7/15/09 9:06am -max-:

Don't sweat it, Ken. We can conjure images in our heads to go along with your audio, though I can't describe what I'm seeing along with the speedy BeeGees...
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:06am still b/p:

Did the Spee Dee Bee Gees ever play CBGB?
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:07am Lizardner Dave:

No worries on the pics Ken, their absence means I'll click over here less frequently and get more work done.
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:08am annie:

PMP!! word!
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:09am ka'trish:

Maybe one day, Ken will not have any music recordings with him for his show and the still photos and gif animations will carry the radio sounds?
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:11am David:

Crack! is the sound a heart makes when it breaks.
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:12am Elias:

I ain't no Gemini.
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:13am BSI:

that is all.
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:13am postmanpaul:

  Wed. 7/15/09 9:23am BSI:

Oddly I've been in the middle of a corn weenie flashback for about 12 hours already...
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:23am Sputnik:

you are the master
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:26am C.I.C:

excellent set
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:27am GP:

This is a brilliant remix.
Corn Weenie..indeed.
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:27am David:

With "Hooked on Kenics", I can sing now!
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:28am Myxtlplyk:

Where is the Corn Weenie CD promised with the marathon contribution?
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:28am jeremy the listener:

good day to the great unwashed masses
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:28am anne:

listening live from tokyo. hey there Ken, hey there everybody.
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:31am Ken:

Myxtlplyk, I am mastering it this week. Sorry for the delay.
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:31am Ghengis Jung:

The miserable failures are my favorites.
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:34am weiterso:

Hi Ken,
don't forget Karel Gott is 70 now!
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:34am BSI:

Good to hear my enterprising neighbors haven't run off with my WFMU goodies while I slave away at work.

Much better to have 'em late vs. not at all. ... At some point, the great ego of BSI will be sated with a wealth of corn weenies...
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:43am Dan B:

I'm really loving this Venture Bros soundtrack. I think I'm gonna' have to pick it up...
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:48am jan:

  Wed. 7/15/09 9:50am Ne-guh-tor:

  Wed. 7/15/09 9:52am Joe Steele:

The following 6 minutes were also very good.
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:52am dicktater:

This is an SOS, my computer is processing so slowly I cant stream Ken, not even at 24KBS and Im on DSL (granted third world DSL, what is happening, I looked for the key to wind it up but there are no gears!!!
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:53am David:

And this is very good
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:53am Ne-guh-tor:

Anyone out there want their organs to go to an asshole?
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:53am No Assholes:

Is it wrong that to suggest that murderers and rapists and wall street traders become organ donors?
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:54am emily:

I, too, for the first time checked off the donor organ box and mailed it in today!
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:54am ka'trish:

no livers to alcoholics!
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:54am 108365:

ken, the skin is an organ. could it be transplanted? imagine your FACE on Randall Terry.
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:54am wha?:

Ken, I got excited there for a second. You made it sound like the donation had already been made. I thought "What a mensch."
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:55am gregory:

Be careful what you write in that box. they'll think you mean you don't want your asshole transplanted. everything except your asshole is going to go to some asshole.
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:56am Lizardner Dave:

I really messed up. I checked the box that says you donate your asshole to an organ. Boy is my face red!
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:56am BSI:

The greatest Furry Freak Brother!
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:57am doug in dc:

You mean that box was for *body* organs? I thought I was donating my Casio.
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:57am Ken:

Oh myGod Gregory! You're right! Anybody have some whiteout?
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:58am Chris:

Will that Casio play a rim shot, Doug?
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:58am David:

I mailed my asshole to the DMV today.
  Wed. 7/15/09 9:59am wha?:

Big mistake, David. DMV doesn't need any more assholes.
  Wed. 7/15/09 10:01am Chris:

Please hold, your call is important to us.
  Wed. 7/15/09 10:02am Joe Steele:

I feel like I'm in a lobby of a very nice hotel.
  Wed. 7/15/09 10:03am BSI:

I'll have a harp, I guess, if there's no Guinness, or a brown ale at least...
  Wed. 7/15/09 10:04am David:

How about reverse effect next time?
  Wed. 7/15/09 10:14am Dan B:

  Wed. 7/15/09 10:15am BSI:

  Wed. 7/15/09 11:33am Carmichael:

I am hanging on the emotion of every word in this song.
  Wed. 7/15/09 11:33am j-Beeef Penis:

I am finding myself severly mis-represented in this song.
  Wed. 7/15/09 11:34am Ken:

Happy - I got it slightly wrong but now it's been corrected.
  Wed. 7/15/09 11:34am Happy Listener:

Coldplay is the opposite of Hot Shit
