Brian Turner did a 7" show where I think he played something like 72 songs in 3 hours...

  Thu. 9/3/09 6:43am Chuck:

  Thu. 9/3/09 6:48am DBinNYC:

  Thu. 9/3/09 6:53am Meghan:

Yep! I got them all! Thanks Chuck!
  Thu. 9/3/09 6:54am DBinNYC:

I'll review the archived chat, and do some digging.
  Thu. 9/3/09 6:55am Chuck:

No prob! Merely submitted for your consideration... I'll keep the stream open for future shows as well...

  Thu. 9/3/09 6:58am Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi...remember the cat theme show and The Cat Came Back was unavailable? I was on vacation visiting my dear mother last week and I heard something familiar on the TV. My kids had the Noggin channel on and there was a kid-friendly version of that song. What a ripper! The guys at Google tell me Laurie Berkner was the artist.
  Thu. 9/3/09 6:59am Meghan:

Morning Ken! There are a bunch of versions of that song.... I remember one that had a cartoon that was really funny! Hmmmm I found it recently too.... lemme find that...
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:00am Chuck:

Woah! Is a threefer about to happen?!
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:01am Meghan:

Found it! http://www.metacafe.com/watch/27652/the_cat_came_back/
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:04am Arthur, The Bitter Old Man:

I know it probably to late, but how about "Dirty Old Man" by The Fugs? "Hanging out at the school yard gate, looking up every dress I can"
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:05am Meghan:

hehe... morning Bitter Arthur! Can we change that to dirty old man too while we are at it? No Fugs.... sorry!
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:09am Chuck:

Any cheez in this set? *snicker*
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:09am mr. miraculous:

  Thu. 9/3/09 7:30am Parq:

  Thu. 9/3/09 7:30am mr. miraculous:

  Thu. 9/3/09 7:33am miraculous:

"take home-a diploma," that's some next level sh*t
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:33am Meghan:

Good Morning Parq! Glad you could join us!
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:34am Parq:

Hah! I had a feeling this Alice was gonna be the first track I heard whenI tuned in.
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:34am miraculous:

dazed and confused rules
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:35am Meghan:

hehe..... you been cheating Parq? Get the teacher's notes ahead of time?
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:37am Chuck:

Maybe Parq went dumpster diving for the mimeograph of the test like in "Animal House"! Ha!
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:38am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Morning all! Meghan remember, blessed are the cheese makers.
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:39am Meghan:

Dum Dum! I was getting worried! Glad you made it!
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:47am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

My high school had a designated smoking area. That just about sums up how old I am. Ha!
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:49am Meghan:

Mine DID, but got rid of it my sophomore year... it was by the woodshop and autobody shop.... before they got rid of BOTH of those.
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:54am Chuck:

Rock 'n' Roll High School, great song, horrible film! Film could turn into a cult classic though...
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:55am DBinNYC:

thanks for the 'suckers track!
  Thu. 9/3/09 7:55am stingy d:

yes yes yes! i just want my taco bell too !!!!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:00am Meghan:

Morning Stingy!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:02am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Noah's cool. A year or two ago I was wearing my WFMU shirt in a Whole Foods in Arlington, VA and I was stopped by a fellow stocking the meat shelf who asked me if I ever listened to Noah on WFMU. Turns out he was a friend of Noah. True story. It is a small world and WFMU is everywhere.
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:03am Meghan:

Wow! that is crazy! It's such a small world! And yes, he is a super nice guy!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:05am Chuck:

I once ran into a guy that one of my sisters dated in high school in the train station in Friedburg, Germany! The planet is smaller than you think!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:07am Meghan:

Wow! that is SMALL! I wander around NYC and always wonder if I will run into someone and don't.... go to Puerto Rico installing a sculpture for Tom Otterness and run into an old Tallix employee on vacation....
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:07am stingy d:

hi meghan! and yea i also have some loose ties to noah. some friends of mine used to share an aprtment with him. in fort greene.
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:11am stingy d:

and lastly i wish you could play the ol dirty bastard song about school. it's perhaps a little too dirty.
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:13am Meghan:

Well, having one of the Wu Tang was a good replacement....
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:14am stingy d:

no complaints outta me! whats up tho: i'm drinking coffee, and the biscuits are baking!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:17am stingy d:

  Thu. 9/3/09 8:18am Chuck:

Funny I just finished up some Otterness molds yesterday... Got 5 more pieces by others, including Chemiakin, in my shop that need my attention...
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:20am jeff p:

FINALLY here! actually had work to do this morning....
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:22am mr. miraculous:

jeff you lazy shlub! get me a job. i'm hungry and cold in the land of the viking...
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:22am Meghan:

Yay Jeff! Glad you could make it.... stupid work getting in the way....
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:22am jeff p:

gha! should have suggested "high school confidential" by Carol Pope
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:23am Meghan:

Different Jeff..... not my Jeff....hehe
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:24am Meghan:

Well Chuck..... if you need help..... lemme know! Still no job, so I got me some time!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:25am jeff p:

and i missed the rawk set...
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:26am Meghan:

I KNOW! everyone's normal signing in time has been flip floppy....
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:26am miraculous:

oh... sorry. holla at him for me will you, b-girl?
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:26am Meghan:

Hellz yeah..... HOLLA!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:27am Chuck:

I let you know! I've been keeping you in mind should I start getting overloaded, which could be soon... There also another job in CT that I'll be starting tomorrow. I'm also due to pick up Audrey Flacks piece on the 12th or 13th as well!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:28am jeff p:

B,S,W,D! Nice!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:31am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

There are so many songs with women's names in the title I have no idea how you will pare the list down.

Sweet Caroline- Neil Diamond
Donna - Richie Valens
Ann - The Stooges
Cecilia - Simon and Garfunkel
Sweet Jane - The Velvet Underground
Sister Ray - Velvet Underground
Sally Can't Dance - The Velvet Underground
Janie Jones - The Clash
Judy is a Punk - The Ramones
Sheena is a Punk Rocker - The Ramones
Valerie - The Monkees
Now Mary - The White Stripes
Allison - Elvis Costello
Gloria - Them
Sweet Adeline - Elliott Smith
Angie - The Rolling Stones
Lady Jane - The Rolling Stones
The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll - Bob Dylan
Ellen and Ben - The Dismemberment Plan
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:32am jeff p:

hey paula
zach and sarah (ben foldes)
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:33am Meghan:

That is what makes it a good theme.... I can always go back to it and do it again and again and again.....
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:35am Bad Ronald:

Don't forget Nick Lowe's "Marie Provost"
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:36am Meghan:

I will write all these down! Want to make sure your stuff gets played!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:37am Chuck:

I think I'm gonna bow out of the women's name theme... I know that you'll come up with so many songs that it'll become overhelming! Don't need to add my confusion to making decisions...
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:37am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

What would be a true challenge and take this show to the next level would be a theme in which all of the songs have the same title, whether it actually be the same song or a different song with the same title. Kenny G would weep openly that he did not think of it first.
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:38am B. Gates:

You don't need to write them down - just copy and paste!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:39am Meghan:

Actually Dum Dum.... I DO have a show coming up that is like that.... It's all songs about Stagger Lee.....
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:40am Chuck:

Hey! I have the Just Can't Get Enough collection, all 15 volumes. God I love that stuff!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:40am Meghan:

and Mr Gates.... i have a notebook of songs... so copy paste won't work too well for me.... fancy technology man.... hehe
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:41am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Very cool. You are way ahead of me, as usual.
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:42am Meghan:

I have plans and plans and plans.... it's bad.... number theme where I try to make each track match the song.... like number one has to have One in it.... Trying to pull a show together of songs about each state.... stuff like that...
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:45am jeff p:

  Thu. 9/3/09 8:45am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

How about a show based upon the playing times of the songs? Each song exactly one second longer than the song that precedes it. Too esoteric?
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:47am Meghan:

Now that is some Kenny G stuff there! Like the last recording period for the RIAA where he didn't have to record the name of any song under 30 seconds... so he played all his one second, two second, three second, etc. songs
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:47am jeff p:

"88 lines about 44 women" by The Nails
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:48am meghan:

now does that fall under 88 or 44..... hehe.... the Nails are great
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:48am miraculous:

the song length idea is strong
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:50am Chuck:

Take it easy folks! Let's not bombard the woman with too many new things when there are still shows in the works!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:50am jeff p:

I was thinking your "girls" list
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:50am jeff p:

It's too late, chuck! The floodgates are open!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:51am Meghan:

hehe.... thanks everyone! Yeah, let's worry about me being ABLE to do more shows first! Only so many left until the fall schedule!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:52am Meghan:

Oh true jeff! All the women's names in there.... good suggestion!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:52am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

If he doesn't play ball, I'll get Ken's home phone number and set the robo-caller on overdrive. The man will get no sleep, I promise you that.
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:53am messica:

sweet show dude!
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:55am jeff p:

isn't "women's names" two words?
  Thu. 9/3/09 8:57am Meghan:

hehe... Thanks Everyone!
  Sun. 9/6/09 12:29am Ben:

It might be a little late, but here are a few ideas for your doctor show.
*The Who--Doctor Doctor
*The Thompson Twins--Doctor Doctor (different song from the Who)
*The Beatles--Doctor Robert
*Steve Martin--Dentist (from Little Shop of Horrors)
*The Velvet Underground--Lady Godiva's Operation
*Steely Dan--Doctor Wu
You're doing great. I hope you're on the fall schedule.
