I just posted ALL my Vinyl Fetish photos on Facebook: http://facebook.com/ken.freedman
  Wed. 8/19/09 9:21am Dan B:

Awesome! I have something to look at when I get home from work tonight!
  Wed. 8/19/09 9:23am Ken:

Dan, wtf? "When i get home?" We're not living in the dark ages!
  Wed. 8/19/09 9:26am PMD:

Hi all... and Annie of Strange Words. Ken, great to have you back.
  Wed. 8/19/09 9:26am PMD:

Oh, wait, I take that back... Just scrolled through the photos. What color are your toenails now Ken?
  Wed. 8/19/09 9:34am Tami:

Hi! Don't know what I'm doing awake, but I'm awake and listening!
  Wed. 8/19/09 9:36am Dan B:

Well, Ken, I've been warned more than once about looking at vinyl fetish photos at work, however, my employers actually encourage me to converse with DJs and Listeners on Live Playlists. I know. I work for a strange company.
  Wed. 8/19/09 9:47am wha?:

Yes! Dein Kuss has been floating around in my head all morning. Thank you, Ken.
  Wed. 8/19/09 9:50am cribley:

i love skipping CDs
  Wed. 8/19/09 9:52am Dan B:

Mr. "Crooks and Thieves Must Go" looks like a hybrid of Andy Cohen and The Dude...
  Wed. 8/19/09 9:54am Ken:

Mr Crooks and Thieves is Listener John H. I am SO proud.
  Wed. 8/19/09 9:56am elvina:

oh oh oh thank you for Dave Cloud... perfect
  Wed. 8/19/09 9:57am BSI:

Good organ, Herr Freedman!
Is it too late to become one of the Beautiful People?
  Wed. 8/19/09 9:59am Ken From Hyde Park:

The MSNBC site has list of things going obsolete. Item 34 laments the local record store becoming scarce. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32449036/ns/technology_and_science-tech_and_gadgets/
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:04am Laurie:

Hi Ken! It's nice to hear you back on the radio.
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:06am BSI:

GODDAMMIT! I would KILL for adult-sized "armor of god PJs" -- I went immediately to http://www.armorofgodpjs.com but they seem to be only available in WORTHLESS KIDDIE SIZES!!!!
WHAT THE HELL GOOD IS THAT?!?!? I need a set of these! Need! Need!
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:06am Ken:

Thanks Laurie! I will be gone again next weekbut beginning the week after (Sept 2) that I'm back in the saddle again for good.
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:11am dei x:

Armor of Satan PJs; you get to sleep naked. Armor of Satin PJs; sexy, but not functional
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:12am Jamesoid:

hear the whole Dave Cloud storyhere http://podcasts.resonancefm.com/archives/2265#more-2265
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:16am -max-:

I miss you, Jim.
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:18am Lizardner Dave:

Was that Lester "Roadhog" Moran?
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:18am Mac:

would it be kinky if I wanted to wear the girl's version of "The Armor of God" PJs?
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:19am J-Mar:

I just sent a link to the Armor of God PJs website to a friend and told him, "Your kids need these." He wrote me back and said, "Forget the kids, I want to see these on my wife."
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:19am paul:

don't say hello, when you can say goodbye
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:19am dei x:

Probably, Mac, as the chastity belt is a little different.
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:20am jan:

I expect to be hearing the Glaucoma song stuck in my head tonight
when I am trying to go to sleep. Thanks
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:21am BSI:

I've sent an email to the God PJ people asking about adult sizes. I dearly hope they will get many more such requests from this mob of deranged and sleepy perverts!
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:21am PMD:

J-Mar - great!
I would imagine though that the boy's hat might make for uncomfortable sleeping. The cross (right?) at the top might get caught in the headboard or something.
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:23am J-Mar:

Yeah, well, just try sleeping with a Star of David attached to your head.
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:24am Ne-guh-tor:

Ken, now why can't you sing like Mayor Healey? What a voice. What richness, SING IT! SING IT!!
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:25am Joe Steele:

The Pope's album drops in November, Ken. Just sayin.
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:25am annie:

you gotta have <3
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:26am Ken:

What, our new Nazi Pope has a CD coming out?!!!
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:26am annie:

funny, after all that's come down since last november, i was wondering if we were going to hear this homage any more!~
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:28am Peter Lorre:

Paul Frees?
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:29am Joe Steele:

You didn't know?

http://beatcrave.com/2009-08-05/pope-benedict%E2%80%99s-new-album-to-drop-in-november/

I hear he does a kickass version of Notroious B.I.G.' s "Big Poppa"
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:30am still b/p:

Sounded like Jeremy Irons as Boris Karloff, and without a stretch.
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:30am Joimsie:

Nice seg Boris-> Nina
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:30am Peter Lorre:

Nina Simone is way much scarier than Boris Karloff
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:31am Rob W:

"In 1982, John Paul II reached number 71 in the charts with The Pilgrim Pope, and, in 1994, his recording of The Rosary peaked at number 50." (http://struckbyenlightning.wordpress.com/). Holger Czukay also did a great appropriation of JP-2 rapping in his "Blessed Easter" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCDubkDog4s
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:33am J-Mar:

Y'know, if Ken wore adult diapers, he wouldn't have to use that stalling recording so much.
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:36am texas scott:

hey ken.let's all try this...

http://tinyurl.com/mjahuy
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:42am annie:

it's way too late to announce this but i feel it must be said:
"and now!! let the wild rumpus start!"
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:45am ?:

Ohaiyo, bakayaro!
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:45am PMD:

Oh, that organ donation thing gave me a much needed laugh.
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:46am annie:

i'd love to get it over to FB..
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:48am GP:

Ken,
What is the "Jesus" logo on your T-shirt? Is that your old skool Jesus and Mary Chain 1986 world tour concert shirt?
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:48am Janet H:

Good Morning All!!!
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:49am Carmichael:

Good morning Ken, and poster people.
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:50am Ken:

Hello Janet!! GP - the shirt I'm wearing in that pic is a Michael Jackson "Jesus Juice" T-shirt. I just wore it yesterday, coincidentally!
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:52am GP:

Cool..you know as the Doobie Bros say...Jesus is just alright with me....and um,,,,watch out for those bears.
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:55am jojo:

did i miss something what is this music?
can't wait for the remedy track
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:58am chris:

that wave pic is photoshopped right?
  Wed. 8/19/09 10:59am Joe Steele:

Not that I haven't been paying 100% attention but:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lj-x9ygQEGA
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:01am L:

WOW! Didn't know Little Jon could sound good :D
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:07am -max-:

I sent Ken a photo awhile back (his face on a gun-toting baby), but he has yet to post it. Should I feel slighted?
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:10am Cheri Pi:

These pix of Exsumawa are priceless:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/mkrigsman/sets/72157610446593604/
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:12am Denise in Washington, DC:

-max-: Yes.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:12am Ken:

Thanks for that link to the pics of Exusamwa Cheri! They have the best band masks EVER!!
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:16am Carmichael:

I would have nightmares after seeing them. Now, GWAR I could handle no problem.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:18am Dan B:

I love Tom Scharpling's premium CD. Since I've gotten it, I don't think it has left my car's CD player. Well worth a donation to WFMU!
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:19am C:

I like this. Reminds me of Pearl Jam.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:20am Ken:

Max, way to put me on the spot. I love your photos but I couldn't understand that photoshopped one you sent in. Couldn;t tell what was supposed to be going on in there.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:20am GP:

Ken...that settles it...a masked band tribute show...
Start with Lordi...Gwar...I.C.P..Kiss?...ad nauseum.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:21am james:

A song about bad breath I think
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:22am Cheri Pi:

I've been on a HIGH from my premiums for the last few weeks, and also strutting around like a peacock in 3 WFMU t-shirts! The best investment I've ever made.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:23am Ne-guh-tor:

Wow! You are playing my good friends band Birds of Avalon! I have played in a band with the bass player. The new record is really good, eh?
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:30am BSI:

Damn you strutting-around-like-peacocks people with your WFMU swag! I'm still waitin' on my golden box o'goodies... Is there another DJ slackin' on his/her premium I wonder?
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:30am Cris:

hey ken did u see that neil young thing floating around on pbs? they ignored whole chunks of oeuvre. but i liked how he admits when things go horribly wrong at times.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:37am Ken:

Cris - I missed that.. BSI - contact Joe to find out whats up wioth yiour swag: http://wfmu.org/email.php?id=235&return=%2F
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:38am GP:

LOL, Dream Warriors....I wore this CD out back in the day.
Thanks Ken
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:38am Bklyn J:

Awww, remember when hip hop used to be fun?!
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:38am -max-:

Sorry Ken, but that kid's head was SO BIG that when I inserted your head it did look a bit odd, I know. I did what I could, but I still thought it looked cool enough for our crowd to appreciate.

A saw a Neil Young thing on PBS this week, might have been the same thing, and it had some great stuff, like where he says that he only responds to his Muse, and if the changes he goes through in his musical output ends up hurting others then it's just too bad.

Ah, Dream Warriors! Wonderful! We just recently preserved our VHS of theirs by transferring it to DVD.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:39am Lani:

Aaaaah! Boombastic...
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:39am Bklyn J:

Love that Quincy Jones sample too!
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:40am Bklyn J:

This was waaaaay before Austin Powers beat it to death.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:41am Irwin Chusid:

FYI: sample on My Def = Quincy Jones "Soul Bossa Nova" feat. Rahsaan Roland Kirk on flute.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:42am Bklyn J:

The Whistleman! Yeah!
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:43am GP:

Irwin thank for the info..need to add that to my "want" list.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:43am Ken:

This is one of the reasons why I love the comments on the playlist - all the info on "Boombastic" is correctly put out there and I dont even have to lift a finger!
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:43am Carmichael:

Aaah, Dokaka. Ramblin' Man is an all-time classic. I watch my friends stare at my speakers in horror whenever I play it. That and Tiny Tim's Stairway to Heaven.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:46am Cheri Pi:

More masked bands:Los Straightjackets, MF Doom, Bob Log III
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:47am BSI:

thanks Ken, I sent a hasslegram to JoeMcG. My hunger for corn-weenies and locked-groove loops must be satisfied!

....oh, and if there IS a god, perhaps some Armor Of God PJs from another source!
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:48am Denise in Washington, DC:

Carmichael, Mr. Tim's version of Stairway to Heaven is one of my favorite tracks of all time, along with Li'l Markie's Diary of an Unborn Child. I am going to instruct my loved ones that they must somehow work both of these pieces into any memorial service they hold for me.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:48am PMD:

I received all my swag, finally. Ken, can't believe you don't play some of Van Morrison's songs to break the record contract. Ring Worm is a classic.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:50am Carmichael:

Ken, despite Cecile's absence today, she loves you.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:51am Denise in Washington, DC:

Got my swag, but Irwin, FYI, your NJX Vol. 2 CD was all screwed up -- made horrific noises on every track. If I send it back, can I get a replacement?
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:52am Lizardner Dave:

The locked groove LP is on backorder. I got everything else earlier this week. Love the plate and my cats stare at the Buddha machine when I turn it on.
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:53am dei x:

I haven't received my swag yet (...BRYCE...) and I was so hoping to sport a woofmoo at Frantasia this weekend (frantasiafestival.com)
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:53am Ken:

Carmichael - Thanks! Where the hell is she?! Denise - yes, send it back for a replacement. Send it to Joe M's attention. Address : WFMU PO Box 5101 Hoboken NJ 07030
  Wed. 8/19/09 11:59am GP:

ahhhh..Engrish
  Wed. 8/19/09 12:00pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Thanks, Ken!
  Wed. 8/19/09 12:01pm dei x:

bye Ken!
  Wed. 8/19/09 12:02pm wendy:

I can't believe the show is over already! Dang.
