Listener comments!

  Sat. 8/8/09 6:03am Sue:

Hi Joseph! Good morning!
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:06am Joe:

Hello, Susan from Seattle!
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:06am Sue:

Wow, great track!
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:07am Marco:

And a very good morning from London too, to you and all your listeners...worldwide!
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:08am Joe:

Hey, Marco, welcome to you and the world! Glad you dig this track, Sue!
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:08am Sue:

I'm in Seattle for now, but I will be relocating to London shortly. But I'll still be tuning in! As soon as I figure out the time difference :{
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:09am Joe:

Be sure to say hello to Marco in the UK!
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:11am Marco:

Whenever you want, Sue!
Show starts at 11 AM in the UK.
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:18am Sue:

Thank you Marco! That's awesome of you
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:30am Marco:

Classic Long Ryders track! Great choice, Joe!
Sid Griffin lives here in London and often plays solo or with his current combo, the Coalporters.
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:39am Joe:

Sid Griffin also helps out with those great reissues of Gram Parsons and such, doesn't he?
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:43am Marco:

Indeed he does. He also contributes reviews to "Mojo" magazine and is frequently questioned on all Byrds-related matters. I did bump into him in 2005 in the foyer of the theatre where Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen were playing.
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:46am Joe:

That's cool! Nice guy?
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:49am Marco:

Yes, very approachable and willing to share his vast knowledge. That's the way it should be!
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:52am Joe:

That's great to hear. It's so nice when people you admire from afar turn out to be really friendly in person. I had that experience recently with Robyn Hitchcock.
  Sat. 8/8/09 6:59am Marco:

Robyn is the single best British musician, bar none! Love his latest lp ("Goodnight Oslo"). He will be playing London at the beginning of September but I will be in my native Italy then and will miss him this time. Did catch him in 2008 though, with Peter Buck on stage!
I met Mick Jones of the Clash last month and he is one of the nicest, most down to earth people you could possibly want to meet.
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:07am Joe:

I agree that Robyn is great. Nice to hear that Mick Jones is a good bloke, too! Joe Strummer was here at FMU a couple of years before his death and everyone who was here agrees that he was also a real gent.
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:10am Marco:

Am sure he was. Wish I could shake his hand too.
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:12am Joe:

Yeah, he was one I hated to see go.
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:24am Marco:

Joe, I have noticed there is an exhibition at MOMA that focuses on late seventies NY punk (that I absolutely love). Am planning to come over to catch it before it ends in November. Have you seen it? Would you recommend it? Thanks!
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:27am Joe:

No, Marco, I haven't gotten there on "free" night yet. Regular admission is something like 15 dollars now (more in pounds sterling, I'd imagine), so I need to get there on "pay as you wish" night!
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:44am dale:

wow! haven't heard lats all chant since I put my 45s away. right up there with popcorn and keem-o-sabe!!
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:46am dale:

let's all chant is up there with popcorn and keem-o-sabe !
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:46am Joe:

Damn! Wish I had one of those records with me!
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:46am dale:

sorry for the double post - first one never showed up (til now!!!)
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:50am dale:

did the electric indian do anything other than the 45 (i don't recall the b-side)....i live up by Jimmy Sturr, but have yet to force myself to one of his gigs.
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:51am Joe:

Damn! I wish I had one of those records with me! (See, we both did it!)
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:51am Joe:

You've gotta do it! It's a trip.
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:57am dale:

reading up through the comments, i won the vial of joe strummer backwash beer that hova gave out that day (i think it was hova). problem is I can't find it now. i wanted to clone him and raise him so i don't have to rely on social security when i'm old.
  Sat. 8/8/09 7:59am Joe:

So YOU were the lucky backwash recipient! I think there are still a few vials floating around somewhere. There's still hope! Well, unless you're in a Jim Carroll song...
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:18am Marco:

Sad to hear that Willy De Ville has left us. Thanks for playing the Mink De Ville and Jim Carroll tracks.
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:19am Joe:

Yes, it's a drag. So young, too. But at least he left behind a lot of great music we can listen to until WE go.
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:22am Marco:

And let's hope we can keep on listening to music even after, whatever comes next!
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:25am Lisa the Bearded Lady:

Another fab show, Joe. I was going to write in and request some Mink DeVille, but of course, you were a step ahead of me.
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:26am Joe:

Aw, thanks, Lisa! You a rock star!
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:27am Lisa:

I know you are, but what am I?
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:28am Joe:

Shucks! :)
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:38am Lisa:

Jeez, this is apparently a theme show -- Make Lisa Cry. First Mott the Hoople and now one of my favorite JR songs. Waaaah
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:39am Joe:

I'm not going to talk to you about macrobiotic cooking!
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:40am Joe:

Am I better than the wall? I hope so.
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:44am Lisniffle:

You are better than talking to the wall about macrobiotic cooking.
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:45am Joe:

Ha! I don't want to talk to you about your pet cats.
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:50am Lisa:

Fine! They don't want me to talk to you anymore, anyway.

Have a great rest of your Saturday, Joe.
  Sat. 8/8/09 8:54am Joe:

Thanks, Lisa, you too!!
