  Wed. 7/7/10 9:05am Dan B From Upstate:

Come to think of it, the flash is a bit staticy. I thought it was the record, though.

No more vodka breakfast?

Thaniks for the reports on the stacky stream - I'd suggest moving off of that stream because we are probably gonna have to restart the flash server...
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:12am Dan B From Upstate:

Uh oh. I have no other way of listening at work. You wouldn't happen to have an ETA, would you?
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:13am dei xhrist:

@postmanpaul - I think Germany will beat Spain today. I'm going with Netherlands over Spain or Germany over Netherlands in the final.
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:55am jeremy the listener:

and up
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:55am bw:

The effects of carbonation seem to be as follows:
1) aiding digestion (not scientifically proven)
2) calming nerves (not scientifically proven)
3) bloating feeling, which causes you to feel full faster and thus
drink less water. (This could impede your water intake, or perhaps be
good diet advice - to have a glass of seltzer before every meal?)
4) kills some bacteria that causes infection (good while traveling or sick)
5) 'esophagus irritation leading to bloating or indigestion.'
6) 'breaks down calcium in the human body, which can be a risk to
weak tooth structure and in severe cases lead to osteoporosis.'
7) increases absorbtion of alcohol into the system

#7 is proven I guess
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:55am Dan B From Upstate:

Thanks, Jeremy! Static is gone, too.
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:55am third:

  Wed. 7/7/10 10:01am Skirkie:

For a while I thought Seton Hall hacked your signal. Then I found out WSHU was a CT station.
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:01am postmanpaul:

@ Ken FH-Park - That looks about right.
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:02am Dan B From Upstate:

Ken, are you sure it's food poisoning? It might be Gorky Parkinson's Disease.
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:02am Skirkie:

Giant inland countries and sushi don't mix in my opinion.
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:02am bw:

I dont think it was the sushi - I think it was those MEATBALLS
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:03am Pierre:

normal that's screw the "compressorska"
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:04am jögi:

  Wed. 7/7/10 10:58am Mike East:

"That" being "Zalgon 26 McGee"
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:59am Carmichael:

Finally ... A cover of a Spanish song sung in Spanish by Spanish people, that was covered in Spanish by non-Spanish people.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:00am Ken:

Cypress Hill is from Spain?
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:00am Carmichael:

Now, if we can only get some Netherland rock, we'd be covered, Cup-wise.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:01am jojo:

yes, thanks for playing this ken, even though I am a non spanish non spanish listener, i listen to it everyday now--summer anthem...and smoke more as a nice side effect
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:01am Dan B From Upstate:

Killer set here, Ken.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:03am jelly d:

SO glad ken is back...my favorite show on FMU!!!
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:04am CheriPi:

Ken, I think this song is not by QP Crazy, they're a punk band. I downloaded (for free) this 666 collection and the song was not there, can you confirm? I would LOVE to have a copy of this song.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:05am maria:

I think this is one of the worst songs I have ever heard!
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:06am Ken:

Wow Maria, that means that you have the worst taste of any WFMU listener I've ever known!
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:06am Carmichael:

Agreed, Maria!! please play more, Ken!!
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:07am maria:

yep, that would be accurate, give or take 150 listeners
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:08am maria:

I grinned and beared it though, that is something
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:08am Dan B From Upstate:

I'm sure Maria has better taste than me. To be fair, it doesn't take much to beat my taste in music.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:10am CheriPi:

Here here people, one woman’s Justin Bieber is another woman’s Glenn Branca.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:15am Mark:

Justin Bieber is Glenn Branca? That explains the hair
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:19am dei xhrist:

who? and who?
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:21am dw:

Do the Russians joke about their Presidents last name?
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:23am Ken:

They joke about the fact that he loves Deep Purple.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:25am βrian:

Now just who *is* the Russian president these days? Opinions vary.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:26am Pierre:

Maybe deep purple translate in Russian means something funnier than a color, like a slang word for fart
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:27am Ken:

Putin is the Great Leader, Medvedev is the President.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:28am bbell:

Deep Purple sounds like spy code.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:30am Carmichael:

Sounds more like Gorbachev's head.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:31am Dan B From Upstate:

Is that like a King / Prime Minister relationship?
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:31am trs:

More 80s nostalgia or grasping at that time's economic noose? I mean boon?
