So happy to have The Mighty Chaz back in the DJ chair!

Good morning Mister Charlie!
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:14am Laura L:

Hey, Lupica, when you gonna get back in the chair too? Not while Charlie's occupying it--I'm not suggesting anything unseemly, but we miss you TOO!
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:15am Ne-guh-tor:

Still wearing women's undergarments, too!
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:15am Vicki:

I said myself when I filled in for Ken that I missed Charlie and Mike, and kittens and babies should not stop you doing a radio show :)
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:16am Laura L:

What Vicki said!
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:17am Charlie:

yeah, just because i have a five-hour commute, doesn't mean i can't do a show...
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:17am Vicki:

I'm in London!!!
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:17am john:

  Wed. 6/9/10 9:19am Lupica:

Hey, I have a kitten AND a baby! Dunno what Charlie's excuse is.
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:19am Rob W:

Greetings Charlie, what a pleasure indeed to hear you again!
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:21am Lizardner Dave:

Always great to hear Charlie on the F-MOO! (And the odd Mike and Vicki fill-ins are always aces!)
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:23am BSI:

After this cup, I'm completely out of Tazo Awake (tm) -- Then it'll all be up to you, maestro Charlie. Take the wheel and drive this weary brain STRAIGHT TO HELL!
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:23am Jack:

Charlie! You sound great! SO good to hear you on WFMU; I wish you were back; Monday's are just not the same without you to start my week.
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:23am Steven Gugel:

WOO HOO - Good to hear your voice again Charlie. Been surviving on archives - like the Bulgravian bit.
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:27am (mta) Tony:

Good morning Charlie! Your voice is such a pleasure to hear again. I'm so glad I've awakened to catch your show. Must feel pretty nice for you to see how many fans you have. Welcome back, even if it is only for a day.
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:27am listener 108365 in bushwood:

now i remember how much i miss charlie lewis. and i am not saying that in my too-self-aware-for-criticism path train volvo ad voice
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:28am Charlie:

And I remember why I miss you all!
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:29am postmanpaul:

i've got a feeling that the eel typeface i'm designing this afternoon is gonna be a proper silippery little kipper and a half.
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:29am Gary Mitchell:

What Shannon lacks in diction, she more than makes up for in PASSION.
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:37am Charlie:

Better than the other way around!
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:40am Cecile:

Charlie, might you have Blues March by the Benny Golson Jazztet?
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:41am Cecile:

Charlie, you never forget how to do freeform - it's just like getting run over by a bike.
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:42am Vicki:

ha ha, Cecile
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:45am Michael:

Charlie - Hope you brought some fresh Vermont cheese with you this morning...

Or like Vicki--she's figured out how to do a show all the way from the UK--hey, we're not livin' in the dark ages. We got bikes now!
  Wed. 6/9/10 9:48am still b/p:

  Wed. 6/9/10 9:50am Lawrence:

Delighted to have you back, Charlie.

  Wed. 6/9/10 10:44am still b/p:

What he found in the box was the head of Baloo the bear.
  Wed. 6/9/10 10:44am Charlie:

  Wed. 6/9/10 10:58am Ne-guh-tor:

Vicki, the Wobbly stuff is golden. You guys ever press vinyl?
  Wed. 6/9/10 10:58am Vicki:

not as a joint enterprise, no. We have individually.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:02am Ne-guh-tor:

Can I buy direct from you and if so I'll contact you on your Facespace page. I would like to own some! Bad News had me laughing outloud. Funny the power of cutting off Barry White midword.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:03am Vicki:

I don't have facespace, go to peoplelikeus.org
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:04am Ne-guh-tor:

10-4!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:04am Wendy del Formaggio:

Charlie, Lincolnshire Poacher is ALSO A CHEESE! :-)
http://www.lincolnshirepoachercheese.com/
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:05am Cecile:

Was that Barry White or was that from the Manhattans' "Kiss and Say Goodbye?"
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:06am Vicki:

are you asking me? It was Barry White
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:07am Charlie:

I only play cheese songs!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:09am fodder:

good to hear you back in the saddle charlie !
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:09am Vicki:

I was wondering what that saddle noise was
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:10am Cecile:

Thanks, Vicki.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:11am Parq:

Saddle be what I am when Charlie goes away again.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:12am jan:

what a great show! And look at your rapt audience writing in, hanging on every note. Isn't that incentive enough to come back to city life?
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:12am Charlie:

lol
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:13am Katyana:

Fun to dig through the WFMU music library again, Charlie? Great to hear you here again!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:13am Charlie:

sorry, that lol was meant for parq, not you jan!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:13am RSTVMO:

Phonography reissued on Sundazed?!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:13am still b/p:

Could Barry White get Annette closer even if she's not a wife?
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:13am Wendy del Formaggio:

I'm channeling Hall & Oates right now: "Charlie come back/Any kind of fool could see..." Hee hee.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:13am fodder:

we can always catch charlie weekly up north (or in my case down south)... http://beingslowlynowhere.typepad.com/
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:14am Ne-guh-tor:

I heard a comedian once say that if you listen to Barry White closely he sounds like a rapist. It's not like none of the stuff he's talking about and describing aint gonna happen!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:14am Charlie:

So many celebs in the comments, I feel like Merv Griffin!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:14am fodder:

"You wanna buy a monkey?" - Barry White
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:16am joe:

Is Sex Mob also the Haggards who do a very similar thing with Merle Haggard tunes?
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:16am Parq:

This version of Fernando is competely keeping me from concentrating on my work.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:16am Ne-guh-tor:

Exactly, Fodder. Imagine he's directing his imagination towards a pet chimp.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:16am fodder:

Always hated Fernando. God awful Abba song. And I love Abba. But this version makes me love Fernando with all my heart.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:16am jan:

what, Charlie, you don't love me? sniff, I love you. sniff
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:17am monica:

howdy, chaz!! SO good to hear you back on wfmu. you're greatly missed.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:18am fodder:

it's from the classic sound byte where barry white says "i have a question for all your radio announcers, ya wanna buy a monkey"
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:18am AnAnonymousParty:

It's like a drunk Herb Alpert.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:18am Vicki:

I think that's just about every fmu dj come in and said hi now!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:18am trs:

Charlie in the morning time slot on wfmu sounds as great as ever. Morning flew by once again.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:19am fodder:

i'm having flashbacks to monday mornings...
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:19am hamburger:

  Wed. 6/9/10 11:19am Dan B From Upstate:

Yay! Wing!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:20am Laura L:

@Parq--I haven't been able to do any meaningful work all morning! I plan to fire myself at noon for all this slacking off with Charlie.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:20am Parq:

Jan's 11:16 reminds me of that Adam Gopnik piece where he recounts the consequences of his mistaken belief that LOL stands for Lots of Love. ("So sorry to hear your husband lost his job. LOL")
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:20am dale:

a fine, fine morning set. this wing song makes me want to soar. or it makes my eardrums sore - i can't tell.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:22am seang:

Parq, the master punster--still remember that "Danzig with the Stars" idea!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:23am fodder:

i should be working on a website for Laura right now, but damn you Charlie, damn you, I'm glued to the audio stream.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:23am trouble:

i had to switch radios, as i am in the classroom now, and nothing was more comforting than trying to decipher if those warbly notes emitted from fmu. abba never sounded so welcome! i so miss you on air charlie...
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:24am Katyana:

It's had the opposite effect on me, Fodder. I had to get up early to hear the show, so I'm able to get more work done than usual.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:24am Charlie:

thanks, trouble! and hi... and, damn me, mr fodder!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:24am Charlie:

I'm not getting any work done...
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:25am Laura L:

@Otis--websites can wait--it's Charlie time! You think he gets the idea yet that we want him back on WFMU?
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:25am fodder:

That's right K, wow, very early. I'm late to the affair, didn't get out of bed until almost 11am today.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:25am jan:

laugh out loud? I always miss the joke and laugh after everyone else. I still have fond feelings for DJ Charlie.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:26am Uli:

sorry,,, but i wish to be wailing w/van halen
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:26am Cecile:

wha? RSTVMO! that's great!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:26am Katyana:

Ha! I've been spoiled by WVEW playing Charlie on my schedule.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:26am Bronwyn C.:

Charlie! I am so happy to hear you again! It's like Monday on Wednesday, only 2 years ago!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:26am fodder:

Charlie never left for me, I listen to his radio show still... somewhere else, and still as fortified as ever. he fills my soul.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:28am fodder:

Today.. Charlie is... "Being Slowly Somewhere"
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:28am Katyana:

Fills your soul! Thanks for the morning laughter, everyone!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:28am trs:

I always get work done during Charlie's and Trouble's shows. Ken's too, though not consistently.
Makes ornery work less painful + sometimes fun.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:29am Uli:

you'll never hear surf music again
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:31am Cecile:

Uli, Joe will be back. And I've heard lots of people play surf music. Requesting it also helps.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:32am Steven Gugel:

Maria sure has a tough act to follow
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:33am 3rd Stone...:

...from the Sun.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:34am Denise in Washington, DC:

Hey Charlie -- just arriving, and haven't heard you before, but anybody who plays Morricone is okay by me.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:36am Brown:

from the Sun.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:37am aaron in chicago:

this show is basically treasure
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:41am Cecile:

I love this record because it's early Latifah, and it samples my favorite chicken song.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:41am Cecile:

LMAO Charlie.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:41am Steven Gugel:

You really are AWESOME Charlie!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:41am Cecile:

I will not jock on your bra strap, Charlie.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:42am Dan B From Upstate:

I'm pretty sure this is the greatest thing ever.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:42am dale:

this sounds like james woods rapping - i like it, i like it!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:42am Parq:

Thanks 'Cile, I was just trying to place that sample.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:42am Katyana:

If you did, it might trouble his sacroiliac
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:45am monica:

eazy breezy,chaz!!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:45am Steven Gugel:

Don't go away Charlie, please
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:46am Gary Mitchell:

Tiffany Bolling's parents!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:46am Steven Gugel:

You're the gift that keeps on giving.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:47am David S:

Charle! What a pleasure. It's been too long.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:48am Denise in Washington, DC:

Vicki, I have always adored People Like Us. It's an honor to share a comment board with you.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:48am Aaron:

Can we be graced with another hour or three of charlie?
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:49am Vicki:

thankee
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:49am Katyana:

Agreed. When will we hear you on FMU again, chica?
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:49am Steven Gugel:

Yeah, what Aaron said
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:49am aaron in chicago:

i agree with the other aaron
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:50am Denise in Washington, DC:

I agree with both the Aarons.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:51am fodder:

Yea! Mickey Katz!!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:51am Steven Gugel:

What about me agreeing with what Aaron agreed to (the other Aaron)
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:51am dei xhrist:

Maria, call in sick?
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:51am Laura L:

At this point, won't Ken be a'scared to come back after this supercalifragilisticexpialidocious fill-in from Charlie?
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:51am Dan B From Upstate:

Charlie, it's my first time listening to your show. I can very easily see why you're so missed, I adored the last hour and a half, and I can't wait to go back and listen to the first half of the show.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:52am Vicki:

do some more fill ins, Charlie!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:52am Denise in Washington, DC:

I agree with your agreement, Steven.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:52am Steven Gugel:

yeah, Ken who?

Thanks Denise for being so agreeable
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:53am Aaron:

  Wed. 6/9/10 11:53am Steven Gugel:

I'll drink to that
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:54am Nick:

Me Too!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:54am Steven Gugel:

Somebody lock the studio door. You can't leave Charlie.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:54am Nick:

Lets drink to Charlie
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:55am Steven Gugel:

Is Charlie drinking?
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:55am Denise in Washington, DC:

It might be more entertaining if Charlie would drink to us.

Each of us. Individually.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:56am Parq:

Ass kicking show, Charlie, but I got maybe 40 mins of work done. This reminds me of why I often have to give Ken's shows a miss. Some shows are just too much fun for work. And you don't even have photos.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:56am still b/p:

Spread THIS on your Fenway frank and eat it!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:56am Steven Gugel:

Pass the pipe this way Charlie
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:57am Denise in Washington, DC:

I forgot all about work as soon as I got here.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:57am Nick:

Sweet Caroline isnt so sweet anymore!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:58am Brattleboro VT:

Looks like we're moving back to NYC!...What a great show! I didn't get any work done (another deadline missed). You've got to get back to that library!!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:59am Vicki:

I'm going to be trawling your playlist for tracks for my show, Charlie!
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:59am Steven Gugel:

Don't be a stranger anymore Charlie. Come back soon.
  Wed. 6/9/10 11:59am Duke of Earl Grey:

Charlie's been on a station up in the woods for a while... good old internet, hooray! Just google his name and WVEW....
  Wed. 6/9/10 12:00pm Nick:

Lunch?
  Wed. 6/9/10 12:00pm Aaron:

thanks charlie!
  Wed. 6/9/10 12:00pm Parq:

Don't be a stranger, but do continue to be strange.
  Wed. 6/9/10 12:00pm fodder:

  Wed. 6/9/10 12:00pm David S:

Au revoir! A bientot! Come back soon, h'hear. Great to have you back today.
  Wed. 6/9/10 12:00pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Yay Charlie!
  Wed. 6/9/10 12:00pm AnAnonymousParty:

Reminds me of that guy who sits on the street cornet with a pair of hand cymbals and offers to spell your name with them for a nickel.
  Wed. 6/9/10 12:00pm Katyana:

Super fun show! Now my head thinks it's Monday. Cheers to next time!
  Wed. 6/9/10 12:00pm Vicki:
