The Flintstones Theme put a big smile on my face. Thanks Rob :)
  Sat. 4/3/10 6:31pm Your DJ on behalf of Hova and Belinda:

Thanks Scott, Tony!
  Sat. 4/3/10 6:32pm Rich:

One Saturday night many years ago, while desperately searching the radio dial for programing that didn't make me a wretch, I found Hova's Show and was hooked. Thanks Hova for your shows and leading me to WFMU and all their fine Programs and Folk.
  Sat. 4/3/10 6:36pm Irene:

So great to hear you guys together! Peter and I are listening from NYC!
  Sat. 4/3/10 6:39pm slugluv1313:

  Sat. 4/3/10 6:46pm Tom:

What a nice suprise after Terry T to hear your show from Portland. Listening from SE (South Tabor) Portland. Its time for a Pabst.
  Sat. 4/3/10 6:47pm slugluv1313:

hi Rob and Katie! hhmmm, "El Gato Malo" -- ?? does that translate to "the bad cat"?? (ha ha! now what kitty is *not* just a wee bit baaaaaaad!!!!!!) btw -- i have heard that Seattle is the "epicenter" of veganism -- but at this point, i am convinced that Portland is the place to be for all things vegan!
  Sat. 4/3/10 7:01pm miketp:

  Sat. 4/3/10 7:04pm Grandpa Phil:

Great to hear you
all the best from Grandma Eileen and me
  Sat. 4/3/10 7:27pm julian:

Ha ha! What a trip down memory lane! I still miss Greasy Kids Stuff and Taiyo still gets a thrill when he hears my old recordings of Hova & Belinda wishing him happy birthday and playing dinosaur and train songs for him.
Greetings from Japan to you all from Taiyo's dad!
  Sat. 4/3/10 7:42pm duff:

Good to hear Alan Singley, a great musician. Another Portland feature: summer back yard music parties, especially in the still-thriving punk scene. -From a recent Portland resident currently exiled in Manhattan. Want to get back to Portland soon...
  Sat. 4/3/10 7:58pm Anonymous Frequent Commenter:

Great to hear sounds from Tony C. again! This is wild.
  Sat. 4/3/10 8:01pm Your DJ on behalf of Tony Coulter:

  Sat. 4/3/10 8:22pm Listener Howard:

Hey! I'm also an ex-pat from FMU's broadcast area now in Portland. Are you guys broadcasting from somewhere public?
  Sat. 4/3/10 8:30pm Your DJ:

Hi Howard - actually we're using Belinda and Hova's home studio so no, not public on this one. I might try to do something from a public space in Portland sometime down the road. But I'm a little less ambitious in that regard than, say, Billy Jam who has been doing some amazing far-flung public remotes including just yesterday from Galway, Ireland...
  Sat. 4/3/10 8:34pm Listener Howard again:

Ah, well, it is good to hear you on FMU again! And belated welcome to PDX!
  Sat. 4/3/10 8:38pm Your DJ:

Thanks, it's always great to be here!
  Sat. 4/3/10 8:44pm Robert Goodman:

I'm still hoping Belinda can identify that song about German cars that they played about a decade ago on GKS. "O Mercedes, O Messerschmidt, O Porsche...." to the tune of "O Tannenbaum".
  Sat. 4/3/10 8:50pm Irene:

Hey what was the song that referred to the Reindeer? Couldn't figure it out from the titles.
  Sat. 4/3/10 8:53pm Rob W:

Irene - it was the Tinklers - old Shimmydisc release...
  Sat. 4/3/10 8:58pm Irene:

Thanks Rob! And Thanks Tony, Belinda and Hova. Miss you all on WFMU!
  Sat. 4/3/10 9:12pm Your DJ:

The German-spoofing GKS song is from an out-of-print 1959 comedy LP by Irving Taylor, "The Garbage Collector of Beverly Hills".
