Listener comments!

  Thu. 9/9/10 6:04am Chuck:

Morn! Don't make me spill my coffee!
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:07am Meghan:

Morning! Sorry, still setting up here....
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:10am Chuck:

Right... I'm adding more to a list of bands on one of DB's facebook entries...
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:11am Elwyn:

Good morning/evening!

I'm having dinner and green tea. :-)
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:12am Meghan:

Hey there Elwyn!
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:12am Chuck:

Yo, Elwyn!
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:15am Chuck:

Ah, Julia! Queen of Missouri Blues!
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:24am swampsucker don:

i haven't looked at every state but i believe nj was the only state that had 4 songs. poor job considering fmu is in NJ
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:26am Meghan:

That is the sad part of being the last state in a set.... sometimes you have to get cut.... No biggie though. We already know we are great here...Don't need to fluff our feathers!
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:30am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Hello everybody! Hope you all are having a decent morning thus far!
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:30am asdfg:

  Thu. 9/9/10 6:31am Elwyn:

Yo gang! We gotta get out of the South!!!
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:31am Meghan:

Morning ALF! How are you this morning?
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:33am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Busy building a power supply. Can't wait til tomorrow. I took the day off from my 9 to 5er.
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:34am Chuck:

Got a problem with banjos, Elwyn? hehe....
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:38am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Meghan, that song Arkansas Traveler sounded like the same tune used on the Benny Hill show. I guess Arkansas Traveler is the original
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:39am Elwyn:

Chuck, yes I do. Do they even have electric banjos yet?
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:41am Meghan:

I am imagining a mix of Hee Haw and Benny Hill right now....
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:43am Chuck:

Don't think it would be easy to mount a pick-up on a banjo....
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:45am Elwyn:

They have had electric violins for years and they are complicated. Surely they can do it with a banjo?
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:46am l:

  Thu. 9/9/10 6:48am Chuck:

The body of a banjo is more like a tambourine, Elwyn. A skin surface probably can't hold a pick-up, well, not without completely changing how it sounds....
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:50am Chuck:

Betcha someone has tried it though!
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:55am annie:

wow, i told ozzy you were in colorado... i was waay off..
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:55am Chuck:

Randy Newman in this set, Meghan?
  Thu. 9/9/10 6:58am Meghan:

Nope, Randy didn't make the cut....
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:00am Chuck:

Tom Petty, then?
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:04am sd:

  Thu. 9/9/10 7:08am Elwyn:

@Meghan: What was Hank III like last night? Was it sold out?
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:09am Meghan:

I am going to talk about it in the next break
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:12am Marco D Argento:

Mornin Meghan :( whoa cold mornin:(
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:13am Meghan:

Morning Marco! Yes, a bit chilly out there... but I'll take that over the heat we have had!
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:14am Marco D Argento:

YES MA'AM! I will too!
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:15am Marco D Argento:

Had the AC blasting all night! froze my butt off:)
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:17am Marco D Argento:

Wish it would stay nice and cool like this:( but the heat is a goin to return:(
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:20am Marco D Argento:

So Meghan? If you facebook do you twitter?
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:27am hai rammmmm:

whats up man what about you fuzzy logic we are trying to access a logs into us
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:29am Meghan:

There erased all that craziness.... Marco, I kinda do both....
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:32am Chuck:

Yeah, what was up with the nonsensical comments? Someone just trying to be annoying... GROW UP!
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:34am Elwyn:

Probably someone didn't get their coffee or fruit cup this morning.
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:35am Jeff:

I love the laso from el paso, but remember you're on the air waves this morning too!
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:36am swampsucker don:

meghan i usually really like your show but first charles manson and now a racist song-you can do better
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:36am Meghan:

I do! I asked Ken already about it!
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:36am robert:

Kinky ran for governor last time. Too bad, but he lost.
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:37am annie:

wow... i love this
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:38am messica:

I know every word to this movie. I can act it out alone.
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:39am Chuck:

I can do the same with Monty Python & the Holy Grail....
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:40am messica:

yay! buc, buc, buc, bucaw!
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:40am robert:


How's your Large Marge?
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:40am Chuck:

Nobody here but us chickens... hehe....
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:42am Meghan:

Don.... you need to remember we are following the lay of the land... And hell, Kinky Friedman and the Texas Jew Boys are supposed to be like that!
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:43am Elwyn:

@Chuck: I bought that and Life of Brian on DVD recently and about 9 other DVDs because there was a buy 2 get 1 free sale. :-)
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:45am Chuck:

Cool! There are deals like that sometimes, but most of them don't have that many titles that I really want to own...
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:47am Chuck:

You've gotta totally love a film to get it on DVD...
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:49am Chuck:

Elwyn, did the sci-fi series "Babylon 5" ever get aired in Australia?
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:51am Dave B:

Aw crap... 3 day weekends throw me off.
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:52am Chuck:

Morning Dave! Shake it off, my mellow....
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:53am Dave B:

And I just sent you a bunch of stuff thinking today was Wednesday. Brian Jonestown Massacre doing Arkansas Revisited
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:54am Elwyn:

@Chuck: Yeah. We got B5. My nerd friends and I absolutely loved it. Sometimes I'm tempted to buy it on DVD but there's so much stuff to watch and only so much flat space. I remember, for a week, the guys kept saying "Not the one! Not the one!" Ah! Zaphras - that was his name, right?

Morning Dave! Have a coffee and fruit cup.
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:54am Meghan:

I saw it all come in too! I was wondering what was up with that! ha!
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:56am Chuck:

I took the plunge, Elwyn! The whole series plus the films on DVD. Hell I named my cat G'Kar! Yup, Zaphras was the name and a funny character you've gotta dig!
  Thu. 9/9/10 7:57am qtvgh:

  Thu. 9/9/10 7:59am catpatz:

can't you play anything since you're web only?
swell show
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:00am Parq:

During the year of the 365 Days project on the FMU blog, there was a Thurl Ravenscroft post with literally dozens of his songs. You can probably still find the page, and it's well worth the effort.
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:02am Dave B:

Well, I'll have to get my Charlie fix in the Archives
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:02am Chuck:

Morning, Parq! Thanks for the heads up! Always looking for something new...
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:05am Chuck:

Whew! My 1st LT. platoon leader when I was in Germany was from Lubbuck, TX. He practically spit out his chewing tobacco when I told him I was from NJ... Ha!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:06am Meghan:

Cat- I am on both the live air and web today! Jewish holiday today!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:07am Chuck:

"New Jersey!" *he grimissed*
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:09am Dave B:

Hey Chuck, was up your way this past weekend. Next time I promise I'll give you a holler.

An old friend has a few acres up off 209. He's in the process of building a huge Quonset Hut on his chunk of the mountain..
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:10am Chuck:

Where on 209, DB? Kerhonksen? Ellenville? Those are closest to me....
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:12am jaw:

I never want this trip to end.
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:13am Elwyn:

@Chuck: I probably should get it and rewatch it all. There's so much to get when having a second viewing. I'm also tempted to get Battlestar on Blu-Ray.

I've been buying a lot of series lately: "Dead Like Me", "Breaking Bad" and "Quantum Leap".
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:13am Dave B:

Left off 213, kinda near Stone Ridge. The Q hut is something like 40' x 50' x 20' (WDH)
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:15am Meghan:

awww Thanks Jaw!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:16am Chuck:

Ah! Stone Ridge is about to same distance. A Quonset would bring me back to my Army days. Hehe...
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:18am Chuck:

Have most of Battlestar, Elwyn. Not Blu-ray though, don't have the right player. Thinking about getting a better TV first.
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:19am Chuck:

Oh, and I will second Jaw's input, Meghan! Keep going!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:21am Meghan:

I was hoping this would stop my craving to travel, but it is kinda making it worse.....
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:22am Chuck:

Soon enough, Meg, soon enough...
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:23am Marco D Argento:

So what's your twitter Id:-)
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:23am Meghan:

I have two Marco.... stagnantartist and UWThemePark
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:23am Elwyn:

Ah! A couple of years ago, when the government gave every Australian $900 as part of a stimulus package to fight off the GFC, I swore I'd spend it on either a wedding ring or a PlayStation 3. I'm still single and got the PS3 and have never regretted it.... then I had to upgrade my TV setup (42" Full HD plasma)... then went for the surround sound system... then had to get a universal remote...

Anyway, the Blu-Ray is awesome!

Oh yeah. Lots of people, particularly the conservatives complained about the stimulus package but they sure didn't give their cheques back or acknowledge how the Labor government did a good job of fighting off recession.
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:24am Meghan:

Chuck, not soon enough! I just noticed my passport expires in March!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:25am catpatz:

aha. mazel tov.
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:26am Chuck:

Well you CAN renew a passport, Meg! I can't get one until I find a replacement for my birth certificate. Lost it my last move...
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:29am Elwyn:

I hid my passport inside a book but now can't remember which book it was.
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:30am Chuck:

OMG, I'm gonna punk!!!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:30am Marco D Argento:

Sardines and brandy ice cream!!! I would vomit just looking at it!!!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:30am Parq:

"Haggis ice cream"???
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:30am Chuck:

Ooops, That's puke!!!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:33am Chuck:

Got the surround system, Elwyn. Need the BIG TV! Don't need the game system though. Wouldn't have time to play it and they don't make much in the way of flight simulators for use with such. Love flight simulators!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:33am Elwyn:

Haggis anything = puke... except for the toy Scottish Terrier named Haggic that my sister game me.
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:34am Marco D Argento:

BTW if anyone would like to follow me I am @Marco_D_Argento
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:35am Chuck:

Doesn't your last name mean 'silver', Marco?
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:38am Marco D Argento:

I had it legally changed from mistretta! Sounds a heck of a lot better!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:39am Marco D Argento:

To honor one of my countrymen I took his name. The famous horror writer director
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:40am jeff p:

are we back to a part of the country i care about yet?
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:40am Chuck:

Yay, Ian!

Interesting, Marco. Never felt the need to change the name I was given. It's sort of unique...
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:40am will:

I think you just proved that the bestest songs about Kansas come from the Brits! That Procol Harum song was heaven.
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:42am Marco D Argento:

Well over the last year and 6 months ice been under going a transformation:)
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:43am Chuck:

Hopefully, not into a werewolf or vampire, Marco! We've got enough of those in the media... hehe...
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:43am Dave B:

I'll be back in full force next week! Contractors on my roof, and work awaits.

Have a good week everyone!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:44am johN:

all of these songs should be about Kentucky.
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:45am Meghan:

We already drove through Kentucky! I am not backwards!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:45am Marco D Argento:

Well if you saw me you'de say Goth. Or vampire with the way I dress:)
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:45am Parq:

Ah, an existential question - is Harrison singing about Kansas City KS or Kansas City MO?
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:47am Meghan:

I am not fully sure... i am assuming it's MO... but I lived in Kansas City, KS, so I am taking it back!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:48am Chuck:

Good question, Parq. A harder one would be if the song had Middletown in the title. As I understand it EVERY state has a Middletown....
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:48am Marco D Argento:

I guess I would scare Meghan if we passed on the street:)
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:49am Parq:

K, I checked with Wikipedia, and "12th St and Vine" is in KC MO. But I am all for your act of repatriation, Miss Meg.
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:49am Chuck:

You don't know Meghan then, Marco! There is little that frightens her, except clowns... Ha!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:50am Marco D Argento:

I think Meghan would say "is everything you wear black"
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:52am Chuck:

Well, that does sort of make doing laundry easier... hehe....
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:52am Marco D Argento:

Being honest I look like I stepped off a bad b horror movie
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:53am tj:

no kansas the band itself? is it limited to song titles? this is a fun theme, and for two weeks (that i've been present...)!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:53am Meghan:

yeah, it takes a lot to shock me.... Clowns would make me run away... or beat you up. Hate Clowns....
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:53am Chuck:

As it happens, I think most of the regular theme park attendees love bad B horror movies!
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:53am Meghan:

Thanks TJ! It's fun to do
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:54am Marco D Argento:

How about Dracula. That's what they say I'm trying to imatate
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:55am jeff p:

OK everyone, have a great day! With any luck I'll get out of this funk I'm in for no reason whatsover....
  Thu. 9/9/10 8:55am Marco D Argento:

Meghan "don't bite my neck my blood isn't tasty this time of the morning" :-)
