Listener comments!

  Thu. 9/24/09 6:02am Chuck:

Morning! I need some wake up tunes, Meghan... Still groggy...
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:03am Joshua K:

Hmm weren't we just discussing Jeremy Enigk a few weeks ago or was that in another playlist :)
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:03am Meghan:

Morning Chuck! I just had a bug try to drink my coffee.... so now i have to run, clean cup and try that again....
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:03am Pieter:

Morning Meghan, morning all
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:04am Meghan:

hehe... morning Joshua! And yes we were!
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:04am Meghan:

Morning Pieter!
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:04am Joshua K:

I wonder what caffeine does to insects. Maybe it shortens their lifespan
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:05am Chuck:

I have a halogen floor lamp that 3 moths commited suicide in last night... Cooked bug, such a charming odor!
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:06am Meghan:

Well... considering i just made him drown in it.... i assume death!
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:12am Joshua K:

Was this a tougher theme to start with? You can't just pick related words to search for tracks like the other ones.
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:13am Meghan:

A bit... but not that bad... i had trouble with some letters... as you can see, I am doing it alphabetically....
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:16am Chuck:

This set sounds like it could be the sound track to an underground film, hehe... Siouxsie was for me, of course...
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:16am Meghan:

ohhh it would be a great soundtrack for a movie.... and of course Siouxsie was for you!
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:24am Chuck:

Thank goodness for web casting! This song would never air play otherwise...
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:26am Meghan:

The funny thing it has.... but must be web... cause the accuplaylist had it pop up
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:33am Jeff:

Hey, good morning all. Meghan, I'm sorry this didn't come to me the other night, but if you're still looking for a good "V" song how about VIctoria by the Kinks? I'm off to work... see ya!
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:34am Meghan:

I had a ton of V' names... U names is what I needed.... oh well... thanks Jeff
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:35am Dave B in NYC (aka DBinNYC):

Morning all. Sorry I missed the pirate show, but thanks a mil for the arrrrr-chives.
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:36am Chuck:

Interesting... Sam Talerico did a whole beach music show on VKR earlier this summer...
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:36am Meghan:

hehehehe..... you were dying to use that! Oh thank god I don't have to try to talk like a pirate any more... that was hard!
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:38am Joshua K:

When I was little we had a dog my mom named Fannie
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:40am Dave B in NYC:

Any Zappa in todays show? I know there should be a few applicable tracks...
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:42am Meghan:

you just missed it Dave! it was back as the letter D!
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:45am Dave B:

aww man. Coffee is just kicking in.
  Thu. 9/24/09 6:59am Barry:

looks like i missed a right bloody laugh ont he pirate show the other week..........aaarrgghhh.
great stuff.........
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:00am Meghan:

Hello Barry! Yes, they all had me giggling a lot!
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:01am Chuck:

Pete is going to be doing show at Vassar soon... Amazing that he still performs at 92...
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:02am Dirty Old Man:

If this is still a "work in progress", how about I Hate Sara - Eddie from Ohio. I can't believe I forgot this one!
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:02am Joshua K:

"Folk Songs for Young People" the ones who enjoy songs about drowning yourself in a river
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:03am Meghan:

I saw him in Beacon at that library/gallery. He plays for all of 5 minutes... gets rather winded. He has a lot of people to back him up. What a staple up there though huh?
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:05am Chuck:

Yup, he was interveiwed/sang on VKR a couple weeks back... I saw him and Arlo at a show way back in 83... He was in better shape then..
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:06am Ken From Hyde Park:

What the? No "Beth" from KISS? Maybe next year.
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:08am jonathan:

balls, missed Goodnight Irene - the song of choice for fans of Bristol Rovers FC. great show!
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:13am karen s.:

Megthan,
I thought we women stick together....I can't believe you took A's dare.
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:16am Meghan:

I had to! You have to call him out on his stupidity! So I figured if it gets aired, he may think twice.....
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:16am Joshua K:

There is that Make-Up DVD "Blue Is Beautiful" But I don't know if that track is available outside of that.
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:18am Chuck:

Ah, The Orbison... He is missed...
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:18am Joshua K:

Actually Blue is Beautiful is on the album "I Want Some"
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:19am Meghan:

Cool... I have lots of Make-Up... so if I have it, it will be played!
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:29am Chuck:

Nice job mixing genders of music, Meg! You selected songs that don't make jarring transitions in style... I hate rattling changes...
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:30am jonathan:

genders, lol.
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:30am Meghan:

Thanks.... it's kinda funny to see them mix like that... but i made an conscience effort to make sure the flow wasn't too erratic
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:33am Chuck:

I meant "genders" with the French pronounciation and connotation, Jonathan...
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:42am rick:

Hi, Meghan, I loved your doctor show two weeks ago, but alas missed your pirate show. I will try to hear it on archive. A friend of mine loved the Adam Ant Jolly Roger song. Belle & Sebastian are always good for some women name songs, for example: String Bean Jean or Lazy Line Painter Jane.

Keep up the theme approach and great music!
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:44am Meghan:

Awww thanks Rick! Will do!
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:45am Chuck:

So when does the final word come down for fall and possible extension of your show? The 30th?
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:48am Meghan:

Next week supposedly.... I think applications are due by Saturday... so we shall see! Fingers crossed!
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:52am Parq:

Okay, this Elvis song is jaw-dropping-open.
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:53am Meghan:

Good Morning Parq!
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:55am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Keep the faith. How can they resist the appeal of your show? I buried a statue of St. Joseph outside the station just to seal the deal. So, either your show gets renewed or someone will buy the building. I don't mess around.
  Thu. 9/24/09 7:56am Meghan:

ha! Thanks Dum Dum and good morning to you!
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:09am jeff p:

i'm in!
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:10am meghan:

Jeff P! Finally!
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:12am Parq:

Ah, so you did find a U song.
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:13am Meghan:

Yup! Took a LOT of looking! Damn U names....
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:14am Chuck:

Had to happen... Just can't pass on a Pixies song, can you, Meg...
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:14am jeff p:

yeah the end of tha alphabet is a tough one
heh. hte pixies. BIG surprise there :-)
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:15am Meghan:

hehehe... nope! Be thankful i omitted all the Nick Cave... I could have drowned you all with him!
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:16am Chuck:

Is this from the LP I lent you way back? Or did you go ahead and get the CD?
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:17am Meghan:

oh I have had Bossanova for a LONG time. It was Trompe le Monde I didn't have.... that was the one you lent me
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:18am Chuck:

Oh yeah! I've passed so much music around over the years I don't remember who got what, hehe...
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:19am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

I don't care if they were a TV band, The Monkees were one of the GREAT bands of the 1960s. There, I said it.
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:19am messica:

more bands need to use tamborines!
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:20am jeff p:

ugh. and i have to leave for a meeting in 10 minutes....
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:24am Andy in Berlin:

Hi Meghan,

I guess you could do a million of this theme! How about "Andrea" by the Sunrays (the pseudo-Beach Boys)? Oops! I just realized you were going in alphabetic order. Well, 999,999 more tries!
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:24am Chuck:

Groovy, baby! Email me your specifics!
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:24am john jr peel:

how about
bleach - wipe it away, old shoegazing english band, one of their best tracks
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:24am Meghan:

Jeff you need to stop scheduling meetings on Thursdays!
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:25am jeff p:

there's food, at least.
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:26am Meghan:

ohhhh i Love Bleach! I saw them live in Chicago.... opening for Kitchens of Distinction.... Just not a woman's name....
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:28am Meghan:

Chuck just getting the specifics together... I will give you a call... thinking of staying up there.....
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:28am Chuck:

Not to be knit-picky... Check your playlist after the show for errors... There are a couple...
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:29am Meghan:

There are? I will look over it later....
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:30am john jr peel:

oh, sorry. i didnt realise it had to be a womans name. ok. nice concept. wow im temporarily stuck. doesnt nick cave have a track with a womans name beginning with w. oh zappas willie the pimp;)
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:30am Chuck:

End of set 3, song and artist are inverted and you missed the "d" in Concrete Blonde...
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:32am Meghan:

ahhh thanks Chuck! And John Jr Peel.... I am a Nick Cave FIEND.... so I figure I would give them all a break... could have had an entire show of him.... hehe But you have GREAT taste in music!
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:34am Chuck:

Everybody Samba!!!
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:34am Andy in Berlin:

Now I'm disappointed! I thought Concrete Blone was a great name!
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:35am meghan:

hehe..... well now you have a new band name Andy! And great seeing you again here! You were always my middle of the night friend!
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:35am John jr peel:

cher what else would you be doing;). If you romanticize about BERLIN then check out this short film below - 13minutes of beautiful hilarity from the berlin Underground.
http://www.vimeo.com/6209093
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:37am Andy in Berlin:

that's because it's middle of the afternoon here
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:40am Parq:

On whim, I Google-imaged "blone" and discovered that a lot of other people can't spell "blonde" either.
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:42am Meghan:

it's the excitement of the letter E.... you just bypass that D! or skim by it, not fully pressing it....
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:46am Parq:

God, I never noticed before what a terrible harmonica solo that is on the Lennon track.
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:49am Avant Reguard:

E is one of those special letters that is all consuming along with
H, K, P, T and X
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:57am Parq:

Brava! All 26 letters covered. Mission Accomplished!
  Thu. 9/24/09 8:59am Meghan:

Phew! did it! thanks everyone!
  Sat. 9/26/09 9:47pm Ben:

Hm. Blue. Got a few ideas
Tom Waits--Blue Valentine
Prince--Computer Blue
Madness--Blue Skinned Beast
Eurythmics--Aqua
Johnny Mathis or Blossom Dearie--When Sunny Gets Blue
