Listener comments!

  Thu. 3/4/10 3:28pm Cecile:

Fabio - I would call Roxy more like Top-40 subversives (at least everywhere but the US) or prog-popsters.
  Thu. 3/4/10 3:31pm Buck:

Sawbuck is a slang term for a ten-dollar bill, from the image of the roman numeral X (like a sawbuck) on the old bills.
  Thu. 3/4/10 3:36pm Bit:

and everyone knows 2 bits is 25 cent.
  Thu. 3/4/10 3:36pm Jack:

Dave! Good to hear you again. Miss your show a lot!
Fabio, as always, your show is the best. There's something wonderfully sinful about blasting out loud electronic or avant-garde music in the middle of the afternoon.
  Thu. 3/4/10 3:38pm Cecile:

@Jack, if not sinful, at least outright intellectually indulgent.
  Thu. 3/4/10 3:40pm Cecile:

  Thu. 3/4/10 3:42pm Pooty McToot:

I would have just thrown them (roxy) with all the rest of those glam bands at the time.
  Thu. 3/4/10 3:42pm Barney:

The Picts?
  Thu. 3/4/10 3:45pm Pooty McToot:

Sub-Genre names and minute classifications weren't nearly as prevalent when they were starting up that I think the general thrust of their style/sound would have held hands with bowie, bolan, and the more art styled glammers. 72, man. 72.
  Thu. 3/4/10 3:47pm Cecile:

Pooty, maybe with the singles, but not the albums. I always thought they stood kind of apart from the glam, they seemed, I dunno, more grown-up in a way? That's my take as a teen in the mid-70s
  Thu. 3/4/10 3:50pm Jack:

I seem to remeber in 1972 that Roxy was lumped in the "art rock" category, along with Pink Floyd and Genesis and others. Glam was more the Dolls, Bowie, etc. more of the "look" rather than the sound or the music.
  Thu. 3/4/10 3:53pm Cecile:

I never felt they werereally in the prog camp either - they had a kind of frivlolousness and, I dunno, sophistication. Definitely an interest in fashion and style (check their album covers) those bands didn't have. They were kind of quietly weird, I guess. I like them a whole lot.
  Thu. 3/4/10 3:53pm Cecile:

Now I want to go home and listen to Roxy albums all night, so good!
  Thu. 3/4/10 3:59pm Wilfried:

Fabio, this was the most relevant statement i've been hearing about WFMU on www.
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:00pm Jack:

Also, I forgot King Crimson="art rock". I didn't get into Roxy until much later, but I loved Fripp & Eno early on.
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:08pm bb:

if you dont follow yoko on twitter, you are missing out
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:15pm Jack:

Shohola is in the very northeast corner of PA, near Port Jervis NY?
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:17pm Cecile:

I was so disappointed by Beverly Hills Chihuahua. It wasn't anywhere near stupid enough. It pulled its campy punches.
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:19pm Pooty McToot:

It is on there! I's heard it.
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:25pm Cecile:

I've heard this so many times!
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:29pm frenchee:

Hi Fabio and Dave:
WFMU's own MAC had some zombie dealings w/Frampton
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:29pm still b/p:

The Comes Alive stuff was fine, if crazy overplayed, for radio pop rock, but that song there nearly dealt a fatal sugar blow and perma-cringe to my system. Want syrup with your cheese?
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:30pm frenchee:

MAC doctored the "Frampton Comes Alive" cover with his usual flair, working on a zombie theme. The Framp saw it and actually liked it and postedit to his own fb page I think.
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:32pm Cecile:

still b/p and his version of Road Runner off that album was so horrible, I couldn't listen to Motown for a month.

I did have an 8-track of "Comes Alive" though.
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:39pm Cecile:

Pride, Lust, Anger, Gluttony, Sloth, Envy
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:39pm Ryan B:

  Thu. 3/4/10 4:39pm jaypee:

  Thu. 3/4/10 4:40pm Cecile:

  Thu. 3/4/10 4:40pm Ryan B:

I think Bob Dylan's XMas album is one of them
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:40pm Pooty:

Wrath is the missing one from cecile! Now that all the parts are together we can form voltron!
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:40pm quinn:

hey, y'all should play Opus Avantra's Lord Cromwell (plays suite for seven vices) to celebrate those seven deadly sins
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:41pm Cecile:

Hey, I got 'em all. Eventually.
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:41pm Stanley:

sorry guys filled in the pledge form badly
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:41pm Pooty:

er... well I guess anger is covered by wrath so..uh..doot da da doot doo...
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:41pm still b/p:

Sweet Sufferin' Jesus & Jonathan, Cecile !!!
I had to check! For a moment, I thought you meant a version of Modern Lovers Roadrunner -- and I was going to kill myself at the cognitive blowout!!!

re: Seven Deadly Sins -- I realized earlier this week I'm guilty of the full set.
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:43pm Cecile:

No, thank God, sbp. Not that Roadrunner.
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:49pm Wilfried:

I don't want WFMU to be on the air for 1 more year, but for 10.
  Thu. 3/4/10 4:52pm Stanley:

WFMU is the greatest station in the world. Hey listeners in UK here's a good idea. Dump the tv, donate the licence fee and happily listen to WFMU. You know it makes sense.
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:12pm Tim C:

hey Fabio - thanks for the kind words.. the other deadly sin is enjoying WFMU & not subscribing..
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:18pm Pooty:

I am currently blasting off.
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:20pm Cecile:

Okay, I pledged, but I just pledged again.
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:22pm aidan:

Hey Fabio,
Love the Sun Ra, and also wanted to say that I loved the Micheal Snow you played last week, The Last LP. Brilliant! Love Your show....Long Live WFMU
Aidan pledging from Toronto
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:22pm Pooty:

  Thu. 3/4/10 5:23pm Cecile:

Yeah, they wore me down. I already bought Ken.
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:24pm Pooty:

You win all T-shirts, now. One for every day of the week.
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:25pm Cecile:

I asked for no swag. No swag, unless I WIN SOME!
Cause I'm getting a big box of fun in August.
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:27pm Cecile:

but keep me in this drawing. Cause I want me some Sun Ra. Or a TG Buddha box.
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:29pm Pooty:

  Thu. 3/4/10 5:29pm Pooty:

I have 2 shirts coming, but that won't allow me to be stink free for an entire week. How do you think I got this nickname?
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:33pm Cecile:

I cannot do men's tees except for the gym anymore. And the women's shirts are, erm, too small.
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:36pm Pooty:

  Thu. 3/4/10 5:37pm Cecile:

I'm no longer a mere slip of a girl. ;D
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:39pm Pooty:

That FM3 is pretty awesome too. Though I was sad that it no longer had an output.
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:40pm Pooty:

I would usually plug my other FM3's into my pedal board and just fill the house.
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:45pm Cecile:

I like the Buddha Machine 2 I got. It is great for the bus ride home. I don't know if mine has an output on it or not. I'll have to check when I get home.
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:47pm Pooty:

I just have the first one and the throbbing gristle one & <3 them both!
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:48pm mick:

does anyone ever see a conection between kraut rock and james brown?
happy marathon !!!
  Thu. 3/4/10 5:48pm Pooty:

I kinda want to break mine open to see if there really is a tiny buddha inside, but I am pretty terrible with circuit bending and probably would have to buy a new one.
  Thu. 3/4/10 6:01pm Ike:

Clay Pigeon doesn't have a live playlist so let's just keep commenting here.
  Thu. 3/4/10 6:20pm Ike:

Well, that didn't work.

Sheesh, Clay Pigeon, take half a Tramadol. No, I'm just kidding. Don't do that. I'm sure Ken doesn't have any he can spare anyway.
  Fri. 3/5/10 9:50pm beverly hillbilly:

What! No "Black Gold, Texas Tea" stories!??
  Fri. 3/5/10 11:10pm rich:

What's the name of the band doing that great new Spanish or Mexican Garage song where the guy does the chorus then screams, No! Heard it twice now, killer song. Can't find on Fabio's set list.
