Listener comments!

  Thu. 2/18/10 6:02am Chuck:

Morning! How was the B-Day?
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:03am Dave B:

HMFBD! and good morning to ya!

Be right back, gotta kick the coffee maker on...
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:04am Chuck:

Morning to you too, Dave!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:05am Meghan:

Morning everyone! And it was a good birthday, thanks!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:08am Dave B:

Howdy Chuck!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:08am Chuck:

Are The Replacements in the mix today?
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:10am Meghan:

I should say just wait and see..... but the answer is yes...
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:12am Dave B:

heh... "last song, last set" keep all the listeners on the hook!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:13am Chuck:

Good! I just noticed a song in my collection I should have sent! "Birthday Present" by The Love Me Nots... One of PG's new favorite groups, blast me!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:19am Dave B:

I'm curious how cheesy the cheese platter will be today!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:20am Chuck:

Not that surprising... I would have assumed the 50s were big on birthday songs...
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:22am Dave B:

post war baby making baby boom?
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:23am Chuck:

Considering the topic I think the cheese will seriously reek, Dave!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:26am Dave B:

heh! I thought you'd like this one Meghan! And Chuck, as we've all learned, the more pungent, the more pleasure!

I have some seriously nutty collections I've found - Nuggety stuff from Japan and Brazil. I'll put 'em into my cloud space later today
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:28am Chuck:

Cool! You get very much into the international sounds, don't ya Dave?
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:28am Dave B:

and by "this one" I meant that one - by Daddy A Go Go
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:29am Meghan:

hehe... i figured as much!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:30am Dave B:

Yep, I do... a way to travel without leaving, and not having language to distract I think help "hearing" the music, instead of "listening" to it..

Wesley Snipes said something like that about Hendrix in "White Guys Can't Jump" I think..
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:32am Dave B:


There's the clip!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:33am Chuck:

Works for me too... Except for a mental block I have regarding opera... Just can't get into it...
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:34am Meghan:

I'd rather travel..... *taps my arm* I get serious travel bugs. My passport starts shaking needing to be stamped....
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:35am Dave B:

no doubt... I've got that jones building...
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:35am Chuck:

There are worse additions, Meg... Yours is at least fun and rarely life threatening! hehe...
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:38am Meghan:

hmmm I dunno.... it's an expensive addiction! That and I don't go to your normal average places either!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:38am Dave B:

As far as Opera's concerned, a neighbor of mine who conducts at the met turned me on to that facet. It's something that really has to be seen to be heard. It can't simply be listened to.
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:40am Chuck:

Normal/ average = tourist... Boring!

@Dave: I'm sure! Sort of the difference in reading Shakespere and seeing a performance...
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:42am Maestroso:

Good morning and Happy Birthday Meghan!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:44am Dave B:

w00t on the premium score!

morning Maestroso!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:46am Maestroso:

Morning Dave B!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:46am Chuck:

I was wondering where the rest of the crew were... Morning Maestroso!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:47am Dave B:

for a sec that Janis track sounded like Ethel Merman!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:48am Meghan:

Good Morning Maestroso! And Thanks!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:50am Parq:

Happy birthday, Miss Meg. This was a good month for FMU staffers to be born, e.g. Ken.
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:52am Meghan:

Yep, Ken's is Today!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:53am Dave B:

HBD Ken (vicariously thru UWTP land!)
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:55am Dave B:

did that new Hendrix album come out yet? Valleys of Neptune?
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:56am Chuck:

We need a snow repellent theme! I've had enough of winter!
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:59am Dave B:

Have you done the "cover" theme yet?
  Thu. 2/18/10 6:59am Chuck:

Sounds like the guy that did "Purple People Eater"... Too goofy!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:00am krebstar:

RE: Beastie Boys samples.. it's a bit naughty, and maybe not FCC safe, buttt I've always been curious to hear the joke to the Pig meat markum punchline sampled in Sureshot.
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:00am Meghan:

No, haven't done a cover theme yet....
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:02am Meghan:

Well Krebstar.... this Patton Oswalt track isn't FCC safe either!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:03am Dave B:

ah, the joy of web only programming!

Patton Oswalt is the best. Saw him last year around my b'day, and thought I cracked a rib laughing so much.
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:04am krebstar:

true true... should:ve waited to post my comment!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:05am Meghan:

Meh, it was on the mind.... go with the flow!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:15am Dave B:

otanjobi omedeto, gozaimasu!

(that's one other phrase I remember from days in Japan)
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:15am T hanley:

Happy Birthday!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:17am Meghan:

Thanks T!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:20am Dave B.:

what up T.

And the phrase above is basically "Happy Birthday" that's how I remember singing the "Happy Birthday Song" - my spelling might be off... so there ya go!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:23am T hanley:

What up Dave?
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:23am Dave B:

"Floppy Seven Inch" - now THERE'S a name for a band!!!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:24am T hanley:

  Thu. 2/18/10 7:26am Chuck:

Well, my b'day is in May... It's a good month...
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:28am Uwe:

happy brithday megan and to ken also
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:28am Dave B:

Sedaka = the Chairman of the Cheese Board!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:28am Chuck:

Did Sedaka do anything that wasn't cheese? Ha!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:30am Meghan:

Thanks Uwe! So if Sedaka is prom king, who is the prom queen?
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:31am Uwe:

happy birthday megan and to ken also. try christmas eve for a birthday.....no i didn't get jipped on presents..lol
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:31am Chuck:

There are many candidates, Meghan...
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:33am Dave B:

Petula Clark, if only for her name.
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:33am Meghan:

ohhhh that one hurts Uwe.... My brother's is close to Xmas, I think he might have!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:35am Chuck:

Actually I rather like Petula, Dave... Cheese or not she can sing well...
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:37am Dave B:

@Chuck, no doubt on her singing abilities, but for compositional style and era, she and sedaka go well together!

Kind of aprppos : here's Petula singing "Lucky Day" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5f2FVgX7q0
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:37am Chuck:

Of course, I like the Carpenters and Archies too... Shameful to admit but they bring back childhood memories...
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:39am Dave B:

heh heh heh... guilty pleasures!

(there's another idea for a theme, if not done yet) just think of the cheeseyness! Why it could be an entire show of the cheesiest of cheese!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:39am Bert Yardbrush:

Chuck, I think you should sue your parents.
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:40am Chuck:

The late 60s/early 70s when AM radio ruled the airwaves!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:41am Chuck:

My parents listened to old country, Buck Owens, Johnny Cash and the like... Can't blame them for that!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:44am Dave B:

  Thu. 2/18/10 7:44am Charcutero:

Good morning everyone. Sweet theme Meghan!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:45am Dave B:

not cheese, but a cover theme!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:46am Dave B:

strike that one, I meant a Guilty Pleasures theme - now THAT'S cheesy!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:48am Dave B:


Morning Charcutero!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:50am Frank from New York:

Why not do a money theme for the marathon? Too obvious?
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:50am Charcutero:

Good morning Dave!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:51am Chuck:

Ah! There we are! Morning Charcutero!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:51am Meghan:

I had thought of doing that.... or a Please theme.... or a giving theme....

Morning Charcutero!
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:55am Chuck:

Shouldn't the Replacements song be "Birthday Girl", not Gal? It's originally on thier "Pleased to Meet Me" release...
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:56am Charcutero:

WOW! Imperial Teen! While living in Potrero HIll in SF I bumped into Roddy Bottom in my favorite coffee shop one morning. Being a huge Faith No More fan, I approached him. He invited me to watch the band practice 2 blocks away that afternoon! Ahh San Francisco....
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:58am Meghan:

ahhh that is nice! I like Imperial Teen better than Faith No More, but I had a co-worker that made me hate Mike Patton.... played it over and over and over....
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:58am T hanley:

gotta go to work soon,seeya next week
  Thu. 2/18/10 7:59am Meghan:

See you T! have fun at work!
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:00am Charcutero:

Mike Patton has that effect on a lot of people. Im hoping Faith no More comes east after Coachella and plays some shows.
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:00am Dave B:

Work = four letter word. I took the day off today! heh.
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:01am T hanley:

oh that sux,mike patton is great! sad you had a bad experience! Faith no more is my least favorite of his bands
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:03am Meghan:

That same person also loved Nick Cave and we had to make him stop over playing that cause if you make me start to hate my FAVORITE... I will kill....
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:03am T hanley:

  Thu. 2/18/10 8:05am Meghan:

And Chuck... that Replacements is this album: http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:f9frxqrjld0e
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:06am jeff p:

I just got here. what's today's topic?
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:07am Meghan:

Theme is clowns.... and how they are pure evil... hehe
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:10am jeff p:

  Thu. 2/18/10 8:10am Chuck:

Okay, I'll have to listen to the Pleased to Me cut later to see if it's really the same song.
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:27am Dave B:

Great show Meghan. I gotta run, let me know if you got the snowy tracks I sent ya...

See you next week!
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:28am Chuck:

  Thu. 2/18/10 8:32am jeff p:

I hope he didn't consumate the relationship....
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:35am Chuck:

"People are strange..." the Doors
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:35am Meghan:

Ewwww.... Jeff....

Thanks Dave!
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:37am jeff p:

Hey, I'm just saying what everyone was thinking....
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:39am Chuck:

Some things shouldn't even be thought about, Jeff! Okay, it did cross my mind but I had to dump it... Too sick and wrong!!!
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:45am Chuck:

Didn't go with the Icelandic version, Meg?
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:45am jeff p:

I love this song. It has some of the best happy caterwauling ever in music.
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:46am Parq:

Funny, but I was just last night thinking how, with any sort of new technology, it's a certainty that someone will find a way to (a) steal with it and (b) get his rocks off with it.
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:47am Parq:

It's been said by many people before me that, if Star Trek holodecks ever become real, the entire male population of the planet will never be seen again.
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:47am Meghan:

I am not playing the sugarcubes if I can't sing along with it.... damn it
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:48am Chuck:

Not just technology, Parq... At most times in this society everything revolves around sex and money...
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:50am jeff p:

Rule 34
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:52am Parq:

The pocket calculator had been in existence in prototype for 3 minutes when someone figured out that, if you keyed in "x 35" and turned it upside down, it said "sex".
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:53am jeff p:

Nintendo ds clitoral stimulator simulator (http://news.spong.com/article/9372/Clitoris-Stimulator-Simulator-for-DS)
  Thu. 2/18/10 8:54am jeff p:

  Thu. 2/18/10 8:55am Chuck:

Jeff, you're starting to scare me with this stuff! Not that you invented it, did you?
