Dance dance dance dance dance to the radio...
  Thu. 11/4/10 9:24am Parq:

Always thought that, way more than "Love Will", was *the* classic Joy Div song. The agony in Ian C's voice is palpable.
  Thu. 11/4/10 9:27am Charlie:

Agreed, Parq...
  Thu. 11/4/10 9:28am Michael:

Can't do any work with Charlie on!
  Thu. 11/4/10 9:30am Charlie:

That's because I've got you in a mind meld, Michael.
  Thu. 11/4/10 9:31am Laura L:

Is it hot in here or is it just the radio?
  Thu. 11/4/10 9:32am Drummer Some:

I remember Pink Fuzzy Boom Box! Loved their early stuff before they sold out.
  Thu. 11/4/10 9:32am Charlie:

I am hot -- oh, wait, I'm wearing two sweaters
  Thu. 11/4/10 9:33am Charlie:

That radio is to match your slippers and robe...
  Thu. 11/4/10 9:36am Ron:

Welcome back Charlie :) great to have you
  Thu. 11/4/10 9:36am Drummer Some:

Frost every morning now, here in Pittsburgh. I assume you've got all the crops safely in the barn, Charlie.
  Thu. 11/4/10 9:39am Charlie:

Great to be back, Ron. It's raining here, Drummer man, no frost today. The crops are in the produce aisle, thank you, although my neighbor grows her own food!
  Thu. 11/4/10 9:40am annie:

  Thu. 11/4/10 10:08am Gary Mitchell:

Coyle and Sharpe!
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:10am Charlie:

Hey, Gary -- Coyle & Sharpe are transmitting directly to your brain -- if you can hear them!
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:29am Gary Mitchell:

OOOh yeah Bacharach on a rainy Thursday.
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:33am Charlie:

Yeah, I hope she's not "standing on his doorstep" in the pouring rain...
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:40am lewis:

oh happy day!!! not really paying attention until the stream seemed to suddenly go to a place Doug doesn't spend much time and then a familiar voice kicked in.

Thursday just got so much more pleasant.
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:41am monica:

hola, chaz! grand to have you back in the bosom of wfmu.
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:43am Charlie:

hi lewis -- glad you're having a pleasant thursday morning
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:44am Charlie:

thanks, monica, yes it's great to be back in your (collective) bosom!
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:46am Hugo:

Hail to the return of Charlie! It calls for a cup of tea (or maybe not, as tea has become a somewhat potent brew lately).
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:47am Charlie:

How 'bout a nice single-malt, Hugo?
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:51am Hugo:

Now you're talking, Charlie. Had a very nice helping of Talisker last Friday at an office party.
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:53am Charlie:

Why wait 'til Friday afternoon?
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:56am jill:

I got curious about some of the photos that you posted and i googled "radio pillows" and came up with this site -
I'd love some feedback on what this site is trying to say...
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:56am seang:

  Thu. 11/4/10 10:57am Drummer Some:

Welcome to the Stream of Conscientiousness, Charlie!!
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:57am Charlie:

Holy cow, Jill -- that is one very funny/disturbing site! I love it. I have no idea what the message is, tho...
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:58am Hugo:

The combination of Charlie and Scotch single malt might affect office productivity ...
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:58am Gary Mitchell:

east meets zest
  Thu. 11/4/10 10:59am Charlie:

Hey, thanks everyone for tuning in today! I'll be back two weeks from today, 9-11am. If you want updates, and I don't already have your e-mail, drop me a line through the link at the bottom of the page!
