Listener comments!

  Thu. 3/25/10 6:02am Chuck:

Morning! How goes it?
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:03am Meghan:

Morning Chuck! It goes insane, but from what it sounds like, you are riding the same crazy train!
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:03am Andy in Berlin:

we who listen in other time zones salute you
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:04am Meghan:

*salutes back to Andy*
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:06am Chuck:

Morning to you as well, Andy. You are correct, Meghan. Running 5 good sized molds at once and still doing Forton castings on top of it...
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:11am Andy in Berlin:

Hi Chuck!
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:12am Dave B:

Howdy, gang!
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:13am Meghan:

morning Dave!
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:13am Chuck:

Greetings and salutations, Dave!
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:15am Andy in Berlin:

Hi Dave!
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:15am Dave B:

apologies go out to those in different time zones who might already be on the job, but I am going to bask in this theme in preparation for the day ahead of me.
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:17am Chuck:

I concur fully, Dave. Much bouncing around between projects for me today... and the next day, and the next...
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:20am Dave B:

Guten Morgen Andy, best of luck Chuck , and Meghan - thanks for the wake up music!
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:25am Meghan:

My pleasure of course! No place I enjoy better!
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:25am Chuck:

I knew B&S would make to cut no matter what!
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:27am Meghan:

ha! i had 2 two choose from..... I just love them.... so wonderful
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:29am Chuck:

This one is really good too. Any chance to get a 4AD artist in...
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:44am Dave B:

Can never go wrong with the 2 Tone family, can you?
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:48am Meghan:

Never! I am itching for the Specials concert in a couple weeks.... ska ska ska!
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:49am Dave B:

  Thu. 3/25/10 6:54am Chuck:

Ah! JB, another can't fail to be great...
  Thu. 3/25/10 6:59am Dave B:

thanks for the tip on the Specials Meghan. Just scooped some tix for the 4/20 show!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:00am Meghan:

No worries! I am going that date too! See you there!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:02am Chuck:

Crap! I've got to be in Syracuse on those days....
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:02am Dave B:

420 ta boot!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:03am Meghan:

*cough cough*.... chuck, I think you are coming down with a cold that day.... *cough cough*
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:05am Dave B:

Predictive failure is how we refer to it at my job. Predictive failure...


(and the coughing is NOT related to 420)
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:06am Chuck:

Hehe... Wish I could get away with that. This client has been waiting for her stuff a long time though and she's got another piece for me to pick up...
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:07am Meghan:

ha! No, it's NOT! You could say that your shipment of rubber or what not didn't arrive... ;)
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:08am Chuck:

Oh, and she's HOT as well. I will be entertained...
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:10am Dave B:

"when he was black" could be a meme like Seinfeld's "not that there's anything wrong with that"

Thanks for the coffee through the nose Meghan!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:11am Chuck:

That seems to have become a serious drinking problem on your part, Dave!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:12am Meghan:

No problem. Glad to have done my part! hehe
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:12am Dave B:

Thursday Afternoon by Brian Eno. Running time for the song is 1 hour 56 seconds. Too long?

Yeah I know Chuck. I should have learned not to drink coffee between sets.
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:14am Andy in Berlin:

Eno sounds good. Two more of those and she's done.
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:17am Meghan:

hmmmmm i would have to agree a BIT long.... just a wee bit....
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:19am Andy in Berlin:

yeah, it's those 56 seconds....the straw that broke the camel's back
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:19am Chuck:

Here's one that'll cover two days- "Monday Through Thursday" by Steve Mancha.
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:19am kath:

morning workers...
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:19am Meghan:

hehe yep! Can't go into Trouble's show like that.... not very nice you know....
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:20am Dave B:

Fantomas "Suspended Animation" - a song a day for the month of April, celebrating obscure holidays. Tracks are titled "04/10/05 Friday" thru "04/30/05 Saturday"
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:22am Charcutero:

Good Morning Meghan, sweet show today.
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:27am Dave B:

Do the State show on June 14 - Flag Day!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:28am Parq:

A states theme? There are plenty of New York City songs, but are there any about the whole state?
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:31am Andy in Berlin:

this song makes me think - what about an "answer song" show?
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:31am Meghan:

Morning Charcutero and Parq! Thanks Char! and Parq, good question.... this is why I am giving a heads up! Doing it by region too... Northeast, South, Midwest and West....
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:32am Dave B:

on or about June 14, as that date falls on a Tuesday... Are you going to play them as they joined the union?

Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey etc...
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:34am Brian in UK:

Listening as I'm applying for jobs. Hope ths is a lucky omen. Any of those Eddie Furman sang I'll take!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:35am Allen:

Viva Roy Orbison!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:36am Meghan:

Mentioning it last week worked for me.... so I send my good will to you Brian!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:37am Dave B:

@ Parq - New York Mining Disaster 1941 by the Bee Gees. Yes, THE BEE GEES!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:42am Parq:

There ya go, Dave. And no need to emphasize it - heck, I remember when that was a top 40 hit.
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:43am Andy in Berlin:

didn't the BeeGees do a Massachusetts song too?
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:44am Meghan:

They do....
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:44am Chuck:

Yes, they did Andy. It was a bit hit too...
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:46am Elwyn:

Woohoo! You chose the Tom Waits song! You don't hear Tom on the radio enough in Australia
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:47am Meghan:

I try to play him any chance I get.... he's so good
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:48am Ron:

Working class hero great song
on the lighter side BTO working over time?
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:48am jeff p:

I'm here in time! You haven't played "Working Man" by Rush yet!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:49am Meghan:

OMG! How did I not think of that one! Oh Ron! I guess that will come in next time I do this theme! No repeats! And no.... we are NOT doing the RUSH experiment! LOL.
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:51am jeff p:

then i guess you'll have to do the "sheep"theme after all
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:51am Dave B:

HA! nice one Jeff!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:53am Chuck:

I find Jeff's fixation with sheep somewhat creepy...
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:53am Meghan:

It's not HIS fixation.... it's My father in laws.... that is WAYYYY more creepy!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:54am kath:

Indeed I did have "Working Man" by Rush on my list!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:55am Chuck:

That is disturbing!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:55am Dave B:

Hey Kath - Thanks for the Fischer-Z - much better than Ru(bbi)sh
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:55am jeff p:

kath, i was talking to a friend yesterday about the girls/rush thing. she pointed out she liked the three stooges and a friend of hers said the same thing - girls don't like the three stooges.
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:56am Dave B:

one man's sheep is another mans....

Oh skip it.
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:56am Meghan:

I ♥ Dave..... I am sooo using that!
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:57am ron:

Does Johny Cash I'm a worried man fit the theme?Willy and Toots have a version too.
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:57am kath:

that figures; I don't LOVE the Stooges, but I do appreciate them. I was more of a Bowery Boys fan.
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:57am Meghan:

That is the RU(bbi)SH
  Thu. 3/25/10 7:58am kath:

Well now I am obliged to put Rush songs on my lists.
  Thu. 3/25/10 8:00am Meghan:

I watched the 3 stooges the other day..... I just preferred other stuff, but they don't offend
  Thu. 3/25/10 8:00am jeff p:

I still want the sheep show. I'd love to hear "I got ewe, babe"
  Thu. 3/25/10 8:01am Meghan:

I might do it for Father's day.... for my father in law.... that would be a nice gift huh?
  Thu. 3/25/10 8:01am Dave B:

How about a theme based on the themes of Rush songs?

And the RU(bbi)SH thing was a jargon our little clique in H.S. used, called b'lingo - any recollection Kath?
  Thu. 3/25/10 8:02am Dave B:

"Do you smell mutton?"
  Thu. 3/25/10 8:05am Chuck:

"Spam, spam, spam, spam! Wonderful spam! wonderful spam!"
  Thu. 3/25/10 8:06am Parq:

Spam spam spam spam spam spam spam spam spam spam spam spam spam eggs and spam.
  Thu. 3/25/10 8:07am jeff p:

  Thu. 3/25/10 8:08am Meghan:

When i read that one I immediately thought of you all.... I knew I had to read that one. Didn't even get to look at the others. i said, OH YEAH! That is the ONE!
  Thu. 3/25/10 8:10am Dave B:

  Thu. 3/25/10 8:11am Chuck:

  Thu. 3/25/10 8:32am Chuck:

Yay! All hail the DC5! So many great songs, so little remembered...
  Thu. 3/25/10 8:33am Dave B:

Is this one of those weeks of audits, hence the label column?

(and disregard the artifact comment, that was on the live 03/1985 version of that song)
