  Wed. 5/5/10 9:36am PMD:

Ken, does William Shatner count as something that shouldn't be on the radio?
  Wed. 5/5/10 9:38am Ne-guh-tor:

"by my seat of the pants"-HA!
  Wed. 5/5/10 9:42am Ken:

Does anybody have an MP3 of the track "Dead Cat Soap" by Firesign Theater? Dying to play that this morning.
  Wed. 5/5/10 9:44am Listener zero:

The last song's message: Imagine that everybody out on the street was a little monkey -- everything would be a lot more tolerable.
  Wed. 5/5/10 9:48am BSI:

Dead Cat Soap sounds familiar -- thought it was on DEAR FRIENDS but alas... I'm useless you you, mein commando.
  Wed. 5/5/10 9:49am Andy in Berlin:

Herzliches Beileid, Ken. And great to have you back!.

  Wed. 5/5/10 10:13am coelacanth:

Welcome back Ken. I'm sorry for your loss.I read about your dad last week and he sure sounds like he was amazing...i'm not suprised,though.
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:17am Laura L:

Me too, so very sorry for your loss, but I must also say Bravo! for a long life well lived. Here's to him.
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:18am lightning:

One of Stelton's failures, but without him there would be no WFMU.
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:21am dc pat:

ah, man...what are they going to do to all those bunnies?..
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:22am dc pat:

hey, how about some Buzzcocks? Goin' to see them next week...although it breaks my half-rule for reunion tours...well, it's the Buzzcocks, alright??
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:23am Doug in Canada:

Sir, are you going to Megapolis in Baltimore? Saw you are a "fan".
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:25am Ken:

No, not going to Megalopolis unfortunately. But I will be in St Paul in June, as well as Basel and Moscow!! Hope to dop my show from Red Square! I can dream....
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:25am Bad Ronald:

Shelley and Diggle? Are they flogging a new album?
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:25am poutWest:

Hey Ken; Klingon!! although I have heard your show before I am somewhat new to the mornings... good to hear the Klingon on your show and good to hear your show again!... very entertained!!
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:26am dc pat:

nope, just playing the first 2 albums in their entirety. That's the kind of reunion I like.
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:26am Ken:

Klingon? Did I miss something? Whatchyou talkin about?
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:27am Bad Ronald:

Sweet!
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:28am Doug in Canada:

I suspect the HGich.T is easily mistaken for Klingon ...
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:30am Ken:

Thank you Doug, I suspect you are kowreckd
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:31am Cecile:

Good morning, all! Good to have you back, Ken.
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:31am Ken:

Lightning, thanks for the Stelton shoutout!
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:32am Rob W:

HGich.T: sounds like Mark E. Smith with African (and a bit Hawaiian) guitar picking?!
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:32am Ken:

Hi Cecile! I still love you.
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:34am Cecile:

I still love you, too, Ken. Time cannot come between us.
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:34am Ken:

Yeah, that hGich.t track did sounds like Mark E Smith. Which is why I played Von Sudenfed right after. THAT is the mark of a good segue, when the DJ has to explain it right afterwards...
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:34am Rob W:

Me too, Cecile!
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:34am bennett4senate:

hey ken I just emailed you a link to Dead Cat Soap
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:35am bbell:

Welcome back, Ken, you are making the day more beautiful! Thanks!
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:38am cheerios:

hello from sweden!
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:38am Ken:

Thank you SO MUCH Bennett!!!
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:39am Rob W:

Oh wait - maybe it was the Von Sudenfed that sounded African. Gotta get that right for my ringers collection! Will check later. But let me join the chorus, great to have you back, and you can post-mortem your segues any time, sensei!
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:41am trs:

"under the bus"
BINGO!
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:41am dc pat:

..ech....sorry, missed it. Can you play I Believe again..I was on the phone, thanks!
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:44am coelacanth:

i dont believe John believed what he was saying.(ps-anyone who hasn't clicked for full size image on that comic strip should)
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:46am coelacanth:

(Ken you're making me cry.)
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:46am dc pat:

coelacanth: yes on the comic, hilarious. Not so sure about Lennon..
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:47am Lizardner Dave:

My late mother's birthday is next week and given the context of this set it's becoming a tough listen which means it is, in fact, brilliant radio.
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:49am Carmichael:

Hi everyone and Ken.
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:49am Michelle in Green Bay:

Welcome back, Ken.
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:50am Ken:

Hey, there's a Cecile in this track!
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:57am Cecile:

Yes! Horace Silver.
  Wed. 5/5/10 10:58am Laura L:

Thanks Ken and Bennett--that was swell. Ken, "Caravan," by John Cale on "Hobo Sapiens" is relevant for a Mortality set too though not so funny.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:05am Listener zero:

How about something by the late Peter Steele (died April 14), "Everything Dies" maybe, or "Everyone I Love is Dead", or "Dead Again", or "Life is Killing me", or "Anesthesia"?
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:05am BSI:

ooh, I need to git me one of them "hot, stifling waves of remorse"...
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:06am BSI:

ooh, erm, there's one now.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:09am bennett4senate:

breakin my heart over here
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:13am Irene:

Aw, my eyes are welling with tears from this Dick Curless tune.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:15am Jillian:

My hearts and stars and hugs to you, Ken.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:18am Aaron:

  Wed. 5/5/10 11:18am Cecile:

what happened, Ken?
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:19am Ken:

My Dad passed away/
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:21am Cecile:

Oh, Ken, I'm so sorry to hear that. My condolences.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:21am Vivian:

That's not Ken...I like potatoes..do you like potatoes..
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:21am Bad Ronald:

Ahh, we can always depend on Larry for some levity!
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:22am andyT:

sorry for your loss Ken, your dad sounded like an amazing guy
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:23am Jillan:

I can relate all to well.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:26am jan:

Ken- are you ever going to fully explain the Larry tapes?
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:28am Ken From Hyde Park:

When my dad died I was pretty bummed out for a couple of years. My condolences and support to you.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:28am Adrian in London:

Hi Ken. I'm sorry to hear about your father. I heard him on your SSD 50th birthday extravaganza and he sounded like quite a character.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:28am Irene:

There is no adequate explanation for the Larry tapes.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:29am Carmichael:

I *heart* Dick Curless. His songs are so cliche and politically incorrect, and that basso profundo voice seals the deal for me.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:31am Lewis:

Ken - sending you and yours condolences and best wishes.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:34am Aaron:

Condolences Ken to you and your family…
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:34am Michelle in Green Bay:

Ah...you're playing my song...and I have to go teach a class now. Will call next time I hear it!
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:36am frank:

I am sorry to hear of your loss, Ken.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:36am Doug in Canada:

That's radio ... if you do good radio, what's going on inside will come through .. your listeners appreciate that (well, I do anyway). I always play John Otway's "Green Green Grass" on these occasions (and nobody listening knows why).
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:40am Listener James from Westwood:

Truly sorry for your loss, Ken.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:41am erella:

Ken, I am looking for the phone number to call.

I am so sorry to hear of your sadness. There is nothing like it and no preventing it. This time will blur together for you.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:47am lightning:

If you read about Ken's father you might see a source for his intelligence and creativity . Sometimes it seems like those self-made men of Ken's father's time were stronger than the spoiled kids of the next two generations:

  Wed. 5/5/10 11:52am Fern:

Great show, Ken! Welcome back. So sorry to hear of your loss.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:53am Vivian:

Excellent point Lightning, I absolutely agree.
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:54am Claudio:

GREAT SHOW KEN!!!!! thanks FROM ITALY
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:55am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:55am Ken:

Thanks so much for all your great comments everybody. Next week back to "normal."
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:56am John McCabe in LA:

I hope this song has nothing to do with current events
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:57am poutWest:

Christ!! Not NORMAL... I want Ken!
  Wed. 5/5/10 11:59am Brian C.:

Ken, Welcome back. I had a feeling some Johnny Cash & Rubber Room-type material was coming. And what a great shot of Cash and Sam Phillips!
  Wed. 5/5/10 12:01pm coelacanth:

FMU people are fortunate in that they may be themselves,under almost all cicumstances, and it IS normal...Your dynamics are welcome.
  Wed. 5/5/10 12:02pm laura from brooklyn:

i loved this show, ken! it was a wonderful memorial.
  Wed. 5/5/10 12:02pm Michael:

Sorry to hear of it. You pay a price for having known someone incredible, much less being raised by them [sic].
  Wed. 5/5/10 2:12pm dei xhrist:

Your dad left a fascinating obituary and was one of the best guests on 7SD. I hope your family have the best and happiest memories.
