Hi, Joe! Wow, you're on AND it's daylight! How does it feel? Is it blinding?
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:08pm Joe:

I can't see! I can't see! How are you, Sue?
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:10pm Sue:

Doing good. Enjoying this wind and rain. It's pretty cool. Very blustery. How were your holiday celebrations?
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:12pm Joe:

Pretty good! No one got shot, anyway. Somebody gave me a Partridge Family CD, so you KNOW all is good.
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:13pm Sue:

Awesome, you must have been a good boy this year. Nothing good like that in my stocking.
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:15pm Joe:

I'm a good boy every year. :) What did you have in your stocking, or should I not ask?
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:17pm Sue:

Well, al good things actually, things I really needed and wanted, I have to say. So I can't complain. Hoildays were good overall. Got some cash, some girly stuff, can't go wrong with that.
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:18pm Sue:

It's always nice when people give you good records, too.
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:18pm Joe:

Cash and girly stuff--sounds like a recipe for happiness to me!
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:22pm Joe:

I don't know if everybody would consider a Partridge Family record "good," but hey, I guess that's what makes me me.
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:24pm T:

You nonconformists are all alike
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:26pm Joe:

Hee hee--Doesn't somebody want to be wanted??
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:31pm t:

Don't you want somebody to love?
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:31pm Joe:

Just like me!
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:32pm genericPlacebo:

  Sat. 12/26/09 3:33pm t:

OK, where do you want to hook up?
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:34pm t:

Ill bring some cash and a few girly things
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:34pm Joe:

T, meet genericPlacebo.
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:35pm Sue:

  Sat. 12/26/09 3:36pm t:

Sorry but I am into geriatric placebos
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:37pm Sue:

Damn, so it's exclusive?
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:37pm t:

Well, send me your photo
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:39pm t:

Its geriatric rock
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:39pm Sue:

Ok, but I'm not geriatric
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:40pm t:

too bad honey
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:41pm t:

That good old time punk rock
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:42pm Igor:

Hey Joe,

Should we listen to "I'm Your Man" by Richard Hell today?


Nice tunes!
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:42pm Parq:

Dang, Joe, is this you? I didn't have the puter on, so I didn't know until your first mike break. What a great surprise to catch your show and still not be suffering from insomnia. Love that Move track you played lead-off; possibly my favorite of theirs. Hat's off to ya!
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:44pm t:

Geriatric boy bands
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:45pm Joe:

Hey, Parq! Nice to hear from you! I know you're not usually on the graveyard shift, so thanks for checking in.
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:48pm t:

Radar Love
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:50pm Joe:

Hey, Igor--Maybe I'll slip on that Richard Hell later on. Thanks for the suggestion.
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:53pm Joe:

  Sat. 12/26/09 3:54pm Sue:

that's ok
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:56pm t:

He didn't mean to. It was an accident.
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:57pm t:

Did you get any on your face?
  Sat. 12/26/09 3:58pm Jack:

Hey Joe! Great to hear you. Hope you're having good holidays. Come back to the Day Side!
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:03pm t:

some guys do it better. And don't forget it.
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:05pm K-Tel:

Don't forget our $9.99 Pickle Skinners
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:05pm annie:

  Sat. 12/26/09 4:08pm Joe:

Hey, Jack! Thanks for the nice words. Hey, Annie!
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:12pm frenchee:

Joe, it sounds terrific there at Surface Noise Central. Rock on.
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:12pm Parq:

Hmm, I do believe that someone's confused K-Tel and Ronco.
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:13pm Joe:

Thanks, Frenchee! It's pretty weird being here in the daylight, I have to say.
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:14pm frenchee:

yes, Parq, I think you're right. K-tel stuck to drecky music...no pocket fishermen or pickle skinners.
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:15pm Rob:

Great tracks, killing this crap decade right
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:15pm frenchee:

Wait, Jersey has daylight? I'm comin' over. All gloomy and slush here in Brooklyn.
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:16pm Joe:

Ha ha! Good point--I should start to feel right at home in about another half-hour when it's ink-black outside.
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:18pm Rob:

Yo Joe play some Sonics wont you?
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:19pm Joe:

Hey, Rob--I'll see what I can find!
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:19pm Rob:

Word!! thanks
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:24pm Diana:

If not for the asterisk, just from listening, I would have guessed the Caretakers of Deception were a 60 garage rock band -- cool sounding track!
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:25pm Joe:

Hey, Diana--My "new" actually refers to it being a new CD. It's definitely old garage! I'll talk about it a bit when I come back on.
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:27pm Igor:

"Oooooooooh noooooooooo"

Amazing! Thanks for catch my sugestion!
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:28pm Wendy del Formaggio:

  Sat. 12/26/09 4:43pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Igor, good call on the Richie Hell! And Joe, you must be one of the few FMU DJs who takes requests... and actually plays them :-)
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:45pm Joe:

Jason S. is my shining example. I heard him do it one Tuesday morning and it influenced me greatly.
  Sat. 12/26/09 4:54pm Rob:
