Listener comments!

  Wed. 11/11/09 9:03am Lizardner Dave:

Good morning.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:03am jan:

Not to fawn too much, but your picture editing is everything that your
musical programming is.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:04am Vicki:

notice the 3 minutes silence before anyone knew what to say about that picture
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:04am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Family photo day?
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:08am Ken:

Morning all! Off to a rocky start this AM,. screwed again by the WFMU Technology Curse!
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:10am Parq:

Morning all, am home on my day off, waiting for the plumber or somebody like him. Construction noise from the street is drowning out Ken unless I listen at mega-level.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:11am Andy in Berlin:

Yike - what a great song!
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:14am CC:

Don't worry about the tech stuff Ken. Just put on one of Dylan's creative re-imaginings of traditional Christmas songs and all stress will float away.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:17am annie:

speaking of peversions and dylan: i had a great dream about a dylan album he put out called "21" each title of a song had three letters.. and the theme was very obscure sexual and "adult" related lyrics.. now all i can think of is that there has to be a bootleg of this somewhere huh?? yeah; in my dreams.. !!! good morning all.. and i want you to know how hard i had to try to remember this from two this morning too!
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:17am LizGig:

Ken, more info please about that remarkable first photo.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:19am Janet H:

Good Morning!!!
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:22am Cecile:

Hi/bye - day off with sick hubby. I'm still coming off the crud, too. Later, taters! Have a great show, Ken. You know I love you.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:23am Ken:

Liz, that was my second cousin Lenny when he came home for Thanksgiving in 1977, after spending his first semester at Hampshire College. The other two people in the phot are my cousine Raymond and my Aunt Priscilla. She was PISSED.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:24am pfapfap:

Big fan of 7SD (love the show), never been awake early enough to hear your show. Damn, this is good stuff!
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:25am LizGig:

Ken, that's a very good story! Can you come up with another one?
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:26am Mark:

I believe Ken!
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:27am PMD:

Just in time for the train whistle! yay!
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:28am Maria D:

Pig tongue is wigging me out.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:30am pfapfap:

I can't stop looking at it.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:31am Jan:

Ken- is that the mennonite side of your family, They sure don't look Jewish.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:33am Mac:

Us web listeners have to say: Our junk stinks... but it stinks good!
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:33am annie:

did he travel like that on the bus, ken? hope he kept his coat on all that time..
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:33am Mark from LH:

Ken, I'm leaving now for WO
Cross fingers now please
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:33am Trudy Is Alive:

www.AndyBreckman.com
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:35am Ahhhhhhhhh!!!:

And that pigface gif - That must be the - On no... The Higgs Boson!!!!
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:36am Bill W:

I find the giggling hog GIF infinitely more disturbing.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:37am BSI:

finally made it..... the bus drivers are all hibernating and i think this is the only office open for biz in DC today. ...
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:40am dei xhrist:

If Chris Ware hadn't already turned me vegetarian, that pig would certainly have done it.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:43am PMD:

BSI - hmmm.. we're open! I guess I should feel lucky my bus came so quickly. Hey - Kurt Vile is playing at the Black Cat tomorrow night.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:45am Swine Fu:

This little piggy was demonic...
This little piggy chilled bones...
This little piggy had wolf teeth..
This little piggy scared nuns...
This little piggy was accompanied by "Psycho" sondtrack violins that said "Eee-eee-eee" all the way home.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:46am fishmonkeystew:

Is that the piggy from Le Cochon Danseur by any chance? Creepy goodness.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:48am annie:

FMS- great brains...
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:51am Andy in Berlin:

I always thought The Fall would have a song about me eventually.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:52am annie:

is he still jewish?
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:53am PMD:

Hi Annie, btw. it is not my turn in the active game.
Oh NO! Is that who I think it is????
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:53am -max-:

Good morning, all. I'm not too embarrassed to admit that I thought the mini-marathon was this week. The plus side is that I have a week to try and arrange to take Wednesday off as a vacation day. If so, I'll be down at the station, taking pledges from all you listener/supporters. We all need to dig deep and help keep the station's head above the rising waters of philthy phynance.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:53am CC:

Yes, and we lift off...go Dylan go...
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:53am Mark:

Bob couldn't even bother to clear his throat before takes on ths album
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:54am Janet H:

i just heard Dylan
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:54am Andy in Berlin:

I heard a piece on the radio about the Dylan Christmas record where they played a succession of clips of the various songs and I swear it was like a National Lampoon parody of a Kaytel commercial of a Dylan Christmas album.
  Wed. 11/11/09 9:59am BSI:

PMD: True 'nuff, the streets do seem spookily empty today. Almost post-nuclear. It's marvelous. ...

Alas I can't make the Kurt Vile gig at Black Cat. I've had to miss so many excellent shows this year...... but catching Faust at Sonic Circuits made up for much of that...
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:01am Lizardner Dave:

I pre-pledged to the mini-marathon already. Do I get a special font in the comments section of playlists for that?
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:01am annie:

DC-ers what up with the ghost city talk? and pmd- pitiful just pitiful tiles
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:02am matheus:

I cant fucking believe I've missed the only THE FALL moment in a looong while...

anymore Fall? please?
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:04am C:

sorry, PMD, that kurt vile show was last thursday (if you're talking about the black cat in dc)
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:05am Janet H:

PMD, i did what you told me to do last night.....did you see it?
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:06am BSI:

C, well then I guess I really am gonna miss that Vile show. Ha!
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:07am PMD:

Oh crap. That's what I get for leaving newspapers around the house and reading not in order.
Janet for the record it was a suggestion! And no, have not. I will go look!
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:08am PMD:

Question - which stream has the fewest problems? I was just listening and it was spitting. I chose 24K AAC+.
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:10am jeremy the listener:

ken will you be up for all 24 hours?
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:10am PMD:

Janet! LOL! Guess he needs the glasses to see the pigeons clearly. Ken has not seen?
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:10am Janet H:

if someone gives me an idea...well i go with it

i always use 128k mp3
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:13am -max-:

24K AAC+ is working fine for me this morning. I try and stay with that as the 128k mp3 feed costs the station a little bit more.
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:13am bobby:

i was wondering if the bed music was mad men

oh betty draper what have you gotten yourself into
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:15am Janet H:

ken didn't see it yet....he's too busy trying to do a radio show....
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:17am Ken:

What? What did I miss?
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:19am PMD:

New photo Ken...
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:20am bobby:

air went dead for a moment other than that

you missing out on the draper drama and get ready because
your in for a cliff hanger and a half
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:20am John from Oslo:

a redhead, Ken?
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:22am Lizardner Dave:

I feel "Would You Be Surprised If I'm Oversized" coming on....
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:22am HotRod:

This is fuckin great. Yah.
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:23am Janet H:

lets say i had photoshop open last night....
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:23am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

There is a fly that has been living all week in my overhead light fixture. Why can't it firgure a way out? There is no bottom on the thing, it could just fly out. It is right over me head and the non-stop buzzing is driving me crazy.
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:25am Lizardner Dave:

DDG, the fly is in your mind. Open your mind and let it go and the buzzing will stop.
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:28am PMD:

Where on earth did the butt picture come from??
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:28am Renfield:

Mmm tasty fly...
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:30am Ted Leonard:

Arooo!
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:31am BSI:

Christ, I thought I was the only one that saw the Japanese nostril banana fairy...
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:31am Ken:

PMD<> click for the laregr version of the butt pic and all will be explained
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:32am Janet H:

PMD, click on th butt picture, there is more to it
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:34am Janet H:

http://tiny.cc/ziQC7
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:34am PMD:

OMG. Is that Korean?
and double OMG. Bananas out of the nose. I guess that's better than another place.
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:34am still b/p:

The banana man is a bunch more fiendishly, bad-trippy disturbing than today's pig. Dude could make monkeys just say no.
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:34am Jan:

what is your secret source for all of this bizarre imagery?
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:37am Ken:

I tried NOT believing in the Korean Nostril Fairy, but it doesn't work. And it's dangerous.
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:39am Uli:

ever think maybe the cause of your money problems is you making fun of EVERYTHING- gets very tiresome after awhile
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:39am Jeff M:

I have a new slogan for WFMU: "Radio which makes the dog stare in disbelief at the speakers." Catchy, huh?
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:39am claire:

down at the jersey shore and getting a totally different station (french speaking dj) on regular radio--anyone else?? thought at first Kenny G was back....
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:39am LizGig:

Why do you need eggs with your sausage? Can you not just have sausage?
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:40am paul:

uli: depends. do you take everything seriously and are you rich because of it?
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:43am -max-:

Oh, so excellent that you are playing this amazing RSM piece. Thanks Ken! This made my day, so you can see what kind of day I'm having...
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:43am Ne-guh-tor:

tHANK You R.Stevie Moore.
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:44am Uli:

im just telling you how i feel about it---its like being around someone who lies all the time - you just get tired of it
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:47am annie:

see you all later, lunch with a pal. back by three i hope.
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:47am dei x:

now I'm off bananas. Got any horrid beer promos?
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:48am BSI:

DON'T DO IT!
NOT THE INNOCENT BEEER!!!
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:49am strs:

@Jeff M -- How can you be sure it's disbelief and not something else?
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:51am k.rex:

I hear you Ulli. I feel the same way sometimes.
  Wed. 11/11/09 10:52am CC:

hey ken, what became of that record store list you were compilling a few weeks back on 7SD. I thought it was a great idea.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:02am Ken:

CC - I never compiled the list. Will you?
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:03am Ken:

K Rex and Uli - I feel the same way 5 or 6 times a day, which is why I turn FMU off and then get back to it later.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:04am RSM:

Propofol drip.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:04am Ted Leonard:

What the hell?
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:06am Jeff M:

He told me. He speaks to me, you know.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:09am monica:

the skatchbox, dammit! vid here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0aUVf3R2ds
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:09am PMD:

COOL! 7sd! Ken, have something reflective to capture people's attention.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:11am Ken:

Ooh, PMD, what a great idea! Thanks!
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:12am Lizardner Dave:

Don't go too near the ferry terminal unles you've clued the police in to what you're doing. There are loads of cops with dogs around the terminal.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:12am -max-:

Ken, bring a puppy! That always gets sympathy and attention.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:13am k.rex:

Ken - yep of course; I do the same thing. That's not to say it's not a valid & observable thing, and that it may alienate <certain> people. It's all part of the package. Certainly never stops me from pledging when the time comes (or relentlessly promoting to my friends). Oh wait, is this comment going to be graded like my last one to 7SD? Damn.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:14am Lizardner Dave:

That having been said, tell Andy to go right in the terminal. I only wish I had brought my camera to take pictures of him getting arrested.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:15am CC:

Ken: Yeah, I'd be glad to. Do you want to send me what you have? I'll see how far I can get.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:23am Ken:

CC, I didnt even start compiling the list.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:27am Janet H:

ok i'm back...did i miss anything?
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:29am CC:

OK. I'll pull what I can from the archive then see how far I can get on my own. If anyone commenting knows of a current cool record store anywhere please name.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:30am PMD:

I'm just full of 'em, ain't I?
or of it?
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:30am ?:

Wow, how'd that dude learn to sing out his backside?
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:34am The opposite of a Rammstein fan:

Really? Rammstein? Seriously, Rammstein?
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:35am Hugo:

Yat Kha; country and eastern?
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:36am I am a Rammstein fan:

Nothing like a little Rammstein in the morning for motivation. Suck it, haterz, I'm gonna move some furniture around now.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:36am CC:

hey ? - are you referring to the dylan christmas album?
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:37am ?:

Sorry to offend, Ram Fan. It's just that I would rather be eaten by a bear and shit over a cliff than hear one note by Rammstein. You can't argue taste, of course.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:39am Rammstein:

ich liebe dich!
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:39am Serious music fan:

I try and keep an open mind, as all music is valid, and train whistles too! Of course, that Dylan X-mas album is really putting me to the test.
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:39am LO-T:

rammstein are embarrassing
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:41am Mark:

10 minutes? that's about as long as The Trashmen at the record fair
  Wed. 11/11/09 11:41am Goyim in the AM:

Betcha the Rammstein Haters are all humorless German hipsters. Humorless German hipsters hate Rammstein and love WFMU, except when Ken's being ironic n' stuff.
