  Thu. 12/31/09 6:17am Dave B:

Morning Meghan and the rest of the gang! Coffee's just brewing here...

Funny, this first set seems like its presented chronologically by death date!
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:18am Joshua K:

Will the song "10 in 2010" by Bad Religion become reality?
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:19am Meghan:

On the nose Dave.... on the nose....
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:20am Dave B:

Blossom passed on my birthday, and this track could serve double duty if ever you do the States theme!
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:22am Meghan:

I was originally going to play something off of School House Rock and save this for the states one... but i figured I'll play it again....
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:28am Chuck:

Cool! Don't know if Pylon has ever been played on-air in this state...
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:39am Chuck:

Does this mean we're all out of munchkins now?
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:40am jeff p:

dude, that's harsh, esp since i went to DD and DIDN'T bring a box of munshkins with me...
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:44am Jeff:

Good morning all! Great (yet sad) show so far.
Jeff, are Tipper and Jackson visiting the station this morning?
Meghan, at the next break, let us know who died from the bands you played.
By the way, this past month was the 90th anniversary of the sale of Babe Ruth to the Yankees.
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:45am Meghan:

ahhh yes.... knew I forgot something... hehe thanks!
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:45am jeff p:

i dunno, i say we leave it a mystery... and excercise for the listener, you might say
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:47am Binky:

Yay Mel Brown
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:49am Dave B:

I agree with Jeff. It's kinda cool discovering new factoids!

  Thu. 12/31/09 6:52am Dave B:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nancy_Overton
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:54am jeff p:

oh, and i left tipper and jackson at home. i tip would have been fine but jackson would have thrown up the entire trip here.
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:56am Chuck:

I've been doing my look ups at Allmusic... Nothing on Citizen Kafka....
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:57am Meghan:

Citizen Kafka was a dj here on WFMU in the day.... that one was sent to me directly from Steinski...
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:59am Chuck:

Explains the lack of a listing.... Thanks for the info!
  Thu. 12/31/09 6:59am Dave B:

fingers crossed that some of the tracks I sent you are gonna make the cut!
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:14am Dave B:

too bad about the Bea track. I almost died laughing when I first heard it
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:16am Meghan:

Yeah.... that is why i had to post it... so funny
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:18am Chuck:

What did Jay Bennett die of? He was younger than me!
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:18am Meghan:

When in doubt.... drug OD...
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:19am jeff p:

more and better drugs than we've done
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:20am Chuck:

Reasonable assumption... Happens with musicians all too frequently...
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:23am Dave B:

Fentanyl - It is approximately 100 times more potent than morphine!
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:24am Parq:

Dang. Overslept, gotta rush through the morning routine, but here for some of it at least. Who died from the Glen Miller session?
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:24am Chuck:

Knew Dave would come up with an answer! 100X more, eh? Shouldn't be messing with stuff like that!
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:25am Meghan:

Zeke Zarchy... and Morning Parq!
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:28am Chuck:

I remember the Seeds made an apperance on an episode of "Gilligan's Island" back in the '60s... Funny...
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:29am Dave B:

some of the brand names for Fentanyl are pretty ominous sounding:

Actiq, Duragesic, Fentora, Onsolis, Sublimaze and Instanyl

SUBLIMAZE?

INSTANYL?
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:30am jeff p:

omg... need... to... compse myself.... for next break.... stop... laughing....
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:31am Chuck:

Leave it to drug companies to string together syllables that should never be put together... hehe...
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:32am Dave B:

Meghan - logo contest cut off is 1/10, right?
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:37am Chuck:

Dom was the crow in Secret of NIMH, Meg...
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:41am Jeff:

I think of the 8 or so people playing in Skynyrd, only 1 (guitarist) is an original member, but you know they still have tours scheduled for the next three summers. Meanwhile, I'll never get to see the Cramps again.
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:43am Meghan:

At least you got to see the Cramps!
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:52am jeff p:

OMG LOU REED IS DEAD???!?
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:52am JTKMDNY:

Great tune by Mink DeVille!
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:52am jeff p:

oh, my bad. this only SOUNDS like lou reed
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:55am Meghan:

Thanks JTKMDNY
  Thu. 12/31/09 7:58am jeff p:

you guys are quiet out there....
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:00am Chuck:

Consider it a moment of silence for the departed, jeff...
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:02am Dave B:

enjoying the tunes, and multitasking at home. No work today, so instead, I'm cleaning the apartment
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:14am Chuck:

In an unrelated topic... What's you're schedule look like for next week, Meghan? I'm still "under the gun" in terms of work here...
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:15am Meghan:

hmmmm.... I'll have to check....I'll get back to you on that!
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:16am Dave B:

Just looked out the window.... Who the hell ordered snow in NYC?
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:18am Meghan:

Not sure, but they should be fired.....
But at the same point it makes me laugh at the people in Times Sq.... hehe
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:19am Chuck:

Okey doke, Meg... I check the weather report every morning, Dave... It's not supposed to be a serious accumulation, couple of inches, maybe...
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:19am jeff p:

i'm from buffalo. i brought it with me, kind of like pigpen and his dust cloud.
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:20am Charcutero:

Good morning y'all. Great playlist this morning Meghan, thanks and happy New Year!
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:21am Chuck:

There are no snow flakes falling here upstate, as of yet...
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:21am Meghan:

Charcutero.... good morning! Thanks!
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:21am Dave B:

For the people in Times Square - HA! I never understood the mystique of standing there all day.
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:23am Chuck:

Agree with that! A meaningless waste of time!
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:26am Meghan:

Yeah.... the Times Sq. thing just doesn't make sense..... no bathroom, no booze and a bunch of strangers... in the cold. Screw that!
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:27am Chuck:

The no booze or bathroom part especially! Hehe...
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:29am Dave B:

TWO-FER Thursday Steve Ferguson (NRBQ) and Capt. Lou within a week of each other.
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:30am Meghan:

Nice Dave! That was what I thought as well!
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:30am Chuck:

Wonder how Cindi Lauper took it?
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:32am Dave B:

As for the booze - bring brownies!
Bathroom - I suppose you'd need to think like Lisa Nowak

And the last two posts I've made had 666 as the checksum. WhaWhaWHAT!
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:35am Chuck:

Doesn't surprize me, Dave... Meghan is something of a "master of evil"! Ha!
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:37am Dave B:

Don't forget Carl Ballentine 11/3/2009
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:41am Andy in Berlin:

Hey, what happened to "My Own Private Patrick Swayze" by Male Nurse?!
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:43am Meghan:

Ahhh there he is... hey there Andy! Nope, I am actually cutting people out as we speak! or type....
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:45am Dave B:

And I'll take those previous checksums as a premonition to the Almanac Singers track!
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:47am Chuck:

Luckily Pete Seeger is still with us... He lives up this way... And the snow has just started! At the rate it's coming down I think the estimates of accumulation could be off!
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:48am Meghan:

I am amazed he is still around to be honest.... Last i saw him, about 8 yrs ago, he didn't look too good....
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:49am jonathan:

Jack Rose's guitar playing is so instantly recognisable. thank you Meghan, this is beautiful.
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:49am Chuck:

Who knows how much longer... There was a big ta-do for his 90th birthday this past year...
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:51am Meghan:

Thanks Jonathan.... glad you enjoyed this!
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:52am Charcutero:

Thank you for this beautiful Vic Chesnutt song.
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:54am Chuck:

Well, another UWTP grows short... Happy New Year everyone and don't get eaten by any wild animals tonight! (or any time for that matter) Hehe...
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:55am Cheri Pi:

Roland S Howard!-Noes!
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:56am Dave B:

HMFNY all!

What's next weeks theme?
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:57am Andy in Berlin:

Only got 3 minutes to play "Show Respect to Michael Jackson" by James Kochalka Superstar.

Will she make it?
  Thu. 12/31/09 8:59am Yaniv:

Great show !

btw - d'you ever get a chance to listen to the cover version of Shivers by Nick Cave and Inbal Perlmuter?

happy new decade !
  Thu. 12/31/09 9:35am Noah:

I know I'm late on these but I thought I'd mention them anyway, :
Anthony Williams aka Roc Raida or Grandmaster Roc Raida of The X-Ecutioners (May 18, 1972 – September 19, 2009) AND Michael Viner of the Incredible Bongo Band (February 27, 1944 – August 8, 2009), he also found fame with audio books!
