Awesome, Frank. Dig the "radio hair."

That was pretty funny. Don't do drugs. Drugs are bad m'kay
  Sat. 7/18/09 2:49am Neal:

You should answer the studio phone, Frank! I was gonna try and see if we could add an additional delay to your delay thing.

Right now, you're just talking to me in Heck. If you'd hooked up the phone line sooner, you could've been talking to people in the Sayreville, NJ White Castle earlier, or me in my car.

Hmm. Just went to deadoralive.com and was shocked to learn that Fred Travalena has died -- very recently. Talk about getting upstaged by bigger stars! Never even saw a notice for this 2-bit cheap impressionist.

Hi Frank - good show as always!
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:14am Derek in DC:

Cronkite was in the news a couple of years ago when he came out against the war in Iraq and conservatives started calling him a cut and run commie.

There's a bronze Jim Henson statue on the campus of the University of Maryland. He's sitting on a bench talking to Kermit.
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:15am Toronto Jim:

Second death of the Cronkite "three"? How about Queen Elizabeth? Ain't she just about due?
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:15am JimSally CAN:

Franks does chores for AirTime. It's all worth it to get him Live once a week, maybe we should start a pool and buy him a swiffer?
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:20am Toronto Jim:

Right you are, Brandon. Grab a pop and have a seat on the chesterfield!
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:20am peetyL:

I just saw neil hamburger's picture advertising "the new big ball" in an email from timanderic.com a little over an hour ago!
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:20am Neal:

I don't like hearing reports of anybody with my firstname dying
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:22am Jan Erik:

Math question is a strange choice for a CAPTCHA (computers can do math), but guess it works, at least it trips up the "off the shelf" spambots that just submit a junk to every form they can find.
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:23am Brandon:

There's a freaking Billy Mays Commercial on!!!
Didn't he die?...
Isn't that like sacreligious or something??
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:24am Neal:

There's not likely to be spam bots in here anyway, because a new playlist starts every three of four hours for each new show, and the bot would have to find it.
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:26am willie mays:

  Sat. 7/18/09 3:27am Neal:

That reminds me. After my long dream about being on WFMU, I woke up with a sore wrist. Not sure what that means.
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:29am Brandon:

Do you REALLLY like WFMU Neal?
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:30am peetyL:

I don't know about Neil Hamburger dying or not, but when I went to his MySpace page, my Internet Explorer crashed. Shame on you, tim...
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:30am Toronto Jim:

Neal, if it was your LEFT wrist, that means at least it was "someone else" in your dream.
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:33am Neal:

I'm left handed.

  Sat. 7/18/09 3:49am tito jackson:

  Sat. 7/18/09 3:49am Toronto Jim:

True. Speaking ill of Tim's is blasphemous.
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:50am Scott Crawford:

I totally want to drive to New York right now and hit Timmy's. This is cruel and unusual, Frank!
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:50am Toronto Jim:

Too many Jim's from Canada on here? What, no Gordie's?
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:50am JimSally CAN:

I'm in Kitchener, like 40 minutes from Ribfest, but I'm puppy sitting this weekend, so no ribs for Jim!

See, you Canadian folks can just walk down the street and get a Double Double, but for me, It's a haul. It used to be 3 hours to the nearest one, in deepest, darkest Connecticut.

Ribfest isn't until the first weekend in September, Jim. I'll be up for it.
  Sat. 7/18/09 3:53am Toronto Jim:

  Sat. 7/18/09 4:14am Toronto Jim:

Double-double coffee is the only way to go. Daily, for me, from the Tim's. I concur that Satrbucks (hate it!) tastes burnt.

Double meat double cheese?
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:16am Jeffersonic:

Trivial tidbit about Tim Horton's: He was a quite decent hockey player (Leafs, Sabres) and he was killed in a car accident while still in his playing career.

The original tapes were digital tapes, and they had no way to back up the 220,000 tapes of data. If they had the kind of storage we have now...

  Sat. 7/18/09 4:39am JimSally CAN:

Maybe I should stay up just to be safe... I don't need any bad dreams
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:39am JimSally CAN:

Rice Balls!
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:39am Brandon:

The marshmallow is a confection that, in its modern form, typically consists of sugar or corn syrup, water, gelatin that has been softened in hot water, dextrose, and flavorings, whipped to a spongy consistency
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:40am JimSally CAN:

Come on, RICE BALLS
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:40am Brandon:

Straight from a marshmallow site

From the marshmallow Wiki:

JimSally: ...and perhaps have a dream about WFMU, like Neal, complete with sore wrist afterwards, eh? (Or is my wife there with you now?)
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:40am JimSally CAN:

If you can't find it, better go with Rice Balls.

  Sat. 7/18/09 4:43am JimSally CAN:

I love Jello! I can eat a whole box to myself!
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:43am Jan Erik:

From Wikipedia:
"The traditional marshmallow recipe uses powdered marshmallow root, which may be difficult to obtain. Most commercially manufactured marshmallows instead use gelatin in their manufacture(...)"
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:44am JimSally CAN:

Good night ladies and gents, it's bedy bye time for sally. See you'se next week
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:44am Toronto Jim:

Speaking of Jell-o, does anyone else remember "Junket?" It was like a milky gelatin dessert, as opposed to a clear, water-based one.
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:45am escapist:

Brandon, re; screamin... I feel your pain brother.
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:45am JimSally CAN:

I remember Junket I think, the hospital my mom worked at had it in the Cafeteria
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:46am JimSally CAN:

I called in snot flavored jello

Escapist....I wanted to call in...maybe he'll answer after this segment
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:48am peetyL:

It's called the Willis Tower now, but the Sears Tower IS the tallest building in the U.S.
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:48am Toronto Jim:

Yeah, we kinda didn't like Junket very much, but my grandmother would make it for us a lot. It had less "solidity" than Jell-o, and I think it was always strawberry-flavoured.
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:49am Escaipist:

Doing a meet and greet w/ BOC tomorrow night at their Canyon Club show. Long time firends. Want a t-shirt?
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:50am Escapist:

Invite was for FEN.
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:50am Rampler:

which BOC? Boards of Canada, or Blue Oyster Cult?
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:51am Escapist:

the latter.
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:52am Toronto Jim:

Maybe BOC means "Box of Cash," a cool local Toronto combo who do Johnny Cash cover tunes. The drummer uses brushes on a big upturned cardboard box.
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:53am Rampler:

I would live a t-shirt, I am a big fan of both BOC's!! "Madness to the Method", great song...
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:54am Escapist:

  Sat. 7/18/09 4:58am Joshua K:

We went on a cruise a couple years ago and they had one of those coin machines in the casino and my dad got addicted to it.
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:59am Joshua K:

He kept coming up with strategies to make them fall but he never made any more than he put in
  Sat. 7/18/09 4:59am Escapist:

There is a certain etherial romance about doing a late night radio/television show. It envokes the creative essence of the on air talent. An essence that is necessary.
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:02am Joshua K:

Frank, you ever been to Mitsuwa japanese market?
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:05am mannythemailman:

Back at home, enjoyed my driving with the Rampler segment
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:06am Toronto Jim:

I always wanted my "DJ name" to be "Viewmaster Viewer!"
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:06am Scott Crawford:

Hey, Manny! Don't get busted driving on the phone!
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:06am Jan Erik:

I used to have a couple of Transofrmers viewmaster disks back in the day, not sure where they or the viewer dissapeared to though :(

  Sat. 7/18/09 5:10am mannythemailman:

I was given a battery talking viewmaster for xmas as a kid. The viewmaster disk had a mini audio disc attached and narraterd the pics
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:10am brandon:

  Sat. 7/18/09 5:10am sherri:

sleeping beauty was AMAZING!!!!!
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:11am peetyL:

Sleeping Beauty I think was made in 1938...
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:11am peetyL:

yeah, Cinderella WAS better...
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:12am peetyL:

Cinderella pinball, Frank?
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:12am mannythemailman:

Frank, do you have Playboy pinball
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:12am Toronto Jim:

Hey, there's a woman with all of us fellas here! (I was just about to post a rhetorical question about why there were no females here tonight.)
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:14am peetyL:

You're right Frank. 1959. It just looks older...animation wasn't as good in my opinion
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:14am mannythemailman:

It used to whistle when it started
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:15am Brandon:

finally a female perspective
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:15am Escapist:

I own a couple pairs of Jokerz denim pants. Not the most comfortable pairs.
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:17am Toronto Jim:

I think I recall the "Jokers" pinball machine. But, when I was quote young, there was a truly OLD machine at the local bowling alley called "Blue Chip." So ancient, it had the old roll-over score numbers.
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:17am Joshua K:

If you don't get the ramp then you don't deserve to be called the rampler
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:17am Toronto Jim:

Escapist: "Denim pants?" Where I'm from, we call those "jeans."
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:18am ?:

  Sat. 7/18/09 5:19am mannythemailman:

The jokers wild, tonight on the rampler
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:19am Toronto Jim:

I remember the Riverboat Gambler machine! Then there was a Kiss-themed one (there's nothing Gene Simmons won't do for cash!)
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:20am ?:

RUDY!!!!
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:21am Toronto Jim:

Yonge Street! (pronounced "Young")
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:22am Brandon:

pinball is no fun LISTENING to others play...maybe it's just me, I hated WATCHING my friends play and waiting for my turn...LISTENING is worse!!!...take more calls
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:22am Toronto Jim:

That Yonge Street arcade was the one that all the small-town runaways went to when they got into town. There they would be lured into under-age prostitution.
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:23am Teemu:

Hi all, barely made it for the last half hour...
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:23am mannythemailman:

Yonge St have any Tim Hortons on it
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:24am Scott Crawford:

That is the best song ever, on Riverboat Gambler.
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:24am Brandon:

Toronto Jim, I was in a music video that my friends band shot in TO... right on Bay St.
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:25am Brandon:

about 4 blocks from Union Station
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:25am Toronto Jim:

Oh, yeah -- lots of Tim Horton's along Yonge Street. Yonge Street, by the way, used to be in the Guiness World Record Book as the longest street in the world! (because it eventually turned into a highway and went way, way up north into cottage country)
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:26am Toronto Jim:

Bay Street is the central business district. It's parallel to Yonge, one block east, for those who care.
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:26am mannythemailman:

I went to the CN tower in Toronto and they had one of those glass floor observation areas
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:27am Brandon:

Bay st. was basically shut down for the vid shoot...Hello Operator's Take Me Away vid if anyone cares...lol
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:28am Toronto Jim:

The CN Tower, as of last year, is no longer the tallest structure in the world -- some new building in Dubai is now taller.
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:30am Brandon:

I live 55 mins from TO, and in all of my 28 years, I've never been in the CN Tower
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:32am Toronto Jim:

Brandon: You really should go up the tower some time. Though many here think of it as a silly tourist place, the view truly is stunning. (I once walked up the stairs of the tower, for charity. Took about an hour. Sore legs!)
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:33am mannythemailman:

I live 15 miles from the Statue of Liberty and it took me 46 years to get to see it.
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:34am Brandon:

It's funny, I go to TO ALOT, and have stood at the foot of it many times...I often toy with the idea of walking up or taking the elevator...but then realize I have something else to do that takes priority...lol
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:37am mannythemailman:

daylight is illuminating my windows
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:40am Brandon:

I need a stage name...how does "Hill Covered With Broom" sound?
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:42am Brandon:

I am gonna be releasing my debut solo EP very soon, and I am uncomfortable using my real name...my name would look weird on a t-shirt
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:42am Toronto Jim:

Be careful of the CN Tower staircase: there are 1,776 steps!
  Sat. 7/18/09 5:42am mannythemailman:

  Sat. 7/18/09 5:43am Brandon:

im well aware of shape hole school. theres a few of them in berlin, germany. there private educational facilities that cater for mathematical proteges and people with unique brain bank brain talents. governmental bureaus use shape hole schools to find the brightest to exploit in imagineering research labs for future cutting edge technological breakthroughs. there considered very controversial though in the way students are pressurised.
