Good morning, Ken! Happy Wednesday! :-D
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:01am dei xhrist:

  Wed. 7/29/09 9:03am Dan B:

Oh boy! More ladies an vinyl!
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:04am Pizza Dog:

Greetings from Chicago.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:05am Michael:

Good way to start a somnolent Wednesday morning...
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:05am Ken:

Morning all!!
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:06am BSI:

Kenday!
Coffee is here.
I'm ready.
Bring on the weirdness... and the rain.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:07am John from Oslo:

Hello Ken and all! Enjoying the show with a cup of green tea.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:09am Joe Steele:

Yes, its Wednesday and Hudson County is awash in corruption. It's just the kind of chaos Ken thrives on.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:12am ozzy skateboard:

Hello Ken
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:13am Ne-guh-tor:

KEN! Who'll be fillin' in during your absense? You should get Fatty to do a show. I know People Like us will fill in....
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:13am BSI:

Please use the phrase "Jesus Christ" as a term of deep frustration, as many times as possible. They love that out there...in the world.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:14am Janet H:

Good Morning I'm Here.....HI ALL
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:15am Joe Steele:

Where you going? Jail? Is it that kidney thing?
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:16am dei x:

I 2nd Fatty. His show is the soundtrack of the interdimensional dada circus we fail to admit to.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:17am seang:

what is WFMU doing with all the broken-down jalopies?
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:17am John from Oslo:

Ken! Don't sell the other kindney!
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:18am Cecile:

what is this about a Ken absence?
Why was I not consulted?
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:19am PMD:

Mornin' all... Ken, I always look forward to your photos.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:21am Joe Steele:

Oh shit are you serious?

I didn't even know about that yet.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:22am Jabet H:

Ken I switched my work schedule to be here.....
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:23am JCityJensen:

Are applejacks code for kidney?
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:24am Janet H:

you can tell i'm still sleepy....lol
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:24am ?:

fruity dooos
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:25am sugarwolf:

You can get a kidney for a box of Apple Jacks
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:25am JCityJensen:

You know there is a rally right now in front of cityhall!
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:26am Cecile:

DI-verse!
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:26am listener mark:

So, if I'm in Jersey City, and I see a man walking with a box of cereal, I should steal it from him?
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:26am Peter K.:

I'm pretty sure The Times itself (that is to say, David Halbfinger) has been saying all along that it was Apple Jacks. I've never seen it reported anywhere that it was Froot Loops. What's your source? (By the way, this is the greatest rendition of "God Bless America" I've ever heard.)
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:26am Ne-guh-tor:

Mayor Jeremiah knows how to insert some spoken word!
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:27am ?:

fruity dooos from amway. they was hide my prizes
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:28am Mickey Mephistopheles:

Aw, screw it, Ken. Use a box of Yogi Bhajan's Peace Cereal, vanilla flavored. Nothing like a good old religious cult to provide you with a quality box of cereal.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:28am Ne-guh-tor:

Is it true that Giuffria is backing him up on the God Bless America thang?
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:28am BSI:

Just what does our criminal justice system have against good old fashioned, un-medicated capitalism? eh? eh?

HEY, lookit what I found in my Froot Loops (tm)! The toy surprises have gotten a lot better since I was a kid...
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:29am ?:

FRUITY DOOOOOOOOOs. ROCK
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:30am Bill W:

I can't believe the NYT told me it was Apple Jacks!
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:30am Cecile:

heh, Giuffria.

Aw, yeah. Sing it Dog.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:34am Laurie:

It wasn't a box of Captain Crunch?
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:35am PodSean:

Ha ha.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:35am frooty loops:

hey BSI for (tm) hit keys option + 2 or alt + 2
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:35am PMD:

Where's Ken going to be???
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:36am Ne-guh-tor:

Giuffria sounds ON in this session.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:37am Mark:

I must know who the keyboard player is accompanying the mayor
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:38am Ken:

I'm going to be in and out of town for the next four weeks for a variety of work and vacation things. I hope to do at least one show from a canoe but I'm not sure... so this COULD be my last show for a month or so.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:38am Phil Lind:

TWO tracks off this cd? Sounds like Payola to me...
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:39am BSI:

™™™™™™™™™™
Hot damn, F.Loops! I've got a new toy!
High ASCII (or whatever the hell it is) rocks me like a hurricane!

...I was a terminal geek as a youngster, more of a Golden Grahams kid, but I respected Froot Loops from a distance.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:40am Janet H:

i'm happy b/c this might be my last one ...for about a month too.....lol
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:41am JJZ:

I like the unicode snowman. ☃
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:41am Mark:

Wow Bryan Ferry's voice has changed
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:43am still b/p:

It wuz Lucky Charms! Pink hearts, yellow moons, green backs! Magically meretricious!
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:47am JCityJensen®:

This is the best cover of windmills© ever!
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:47am BSI:

YASS! A prime Nurse With Wound moment.

I should've taken my Lucky Charms 30 minutes ago, for this one.
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:48am Wolfgang Tiefensee:

But Vicky can't shake that Greek accent
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:52am Bad Ronald:

  Wed. 7/29/09 9:53am dei x:

sudden.. orgonic desire... to buy motoscooter...
  Wed. 7/29/09 9:55am PMD:

  Wed. 7/29/09 10:10am paul:

ken, did you send out your marathon swag yet? people on the FOT board are all saying they got the best show swag, but i ordered a few different ones so mine might take a while
  Wed. 7/29/09 10:13am dei x:

I've already seen a woof moo shirt, but it wasn't on me. Future pledges will be based on historic speedy swag delivery.
  Wed. 7/29/09 10:13am Cecile:

those are the kind of politicians I like
  Wed. 7/29/09 10:14am Cecile:

Isn't the stuff going out this week sometime?

Do you have something from the Singing Doctors? They should have a kidney song...
  Wed. 7/29/09 10:16am Ken:

Paul - a lot of swag has gone out, but not all, and if you made a mouse pledge, that stuff is just about to be mailed out. thanks for hanging in there. it takes a long long time because we give away so much damn stuff.
  Wed. 7/29/09 10:21am David:

I hate kidneys! Morning Ken!
  Wed. 7/29/09 10:21am Cecile:

I am looking forward to it as I also have a bonanza coming from Siltbreeze, Amazon and The End Records. So it will be like Christmas in August.
  Wed. 7/29/09 10:22am paul:

excellent! thanks
  Wed. 7/29/09 10:24am BSI:

re: the swag, BSI birthday is in mid-august, so now that the spent $$$ is (almost) forgotten, it'll be like free stuff! I'll be woof-moo-ing all the livelong day!
  Wed. 7/29/09 10:24am annie:

  Wed. 7/29/09 10:25am shiro taniguchi:

  Wed. 7/29/09 10:25am J. Geils:

  Wed. 7/29/09 10:28am GP:

And a gratuitous early 90's version of a shoutout to everyone else: Whasupp!
  Wed. 7/29/09 10:29am John from Oslo:

I had some nice eet with my cereal this morning!
  Wed. 7/29/09 10:29am GP:

HA! I know where you got one or two of your illustrations! Wow!
  Wed. 7/29/09 11:28am David:

Sorry, I guess any use of the 'd' word makes it all wrong. I meant to say it is connected by a bungie cord.
  Wed. 7/29/09 11:31am -max-:

I prefer near-palindromes myself.
  Wed. 7/29/09 11:31am Joe Steele:

I'd be more impressed if the ENTIRE SONG was a palindrome.
  Wed. 7/29/09 11:38am David:

Is Julie Doiron involved on this one?
  Wed. 7/29/09 11:41am Janet H:

The USA Network Monk Forum is soliciting questions from fans to ask ANDY BRECKMAN for future video interviews ... what should I ask?
  Wed. 7/29/09 11:43am Cecile:

Um, I'm not the one to ask.
  Wed. 7/29/09 11:47am John McCabe in LA:

  Wed. 7/29/09 11:57am David:
