Listener comments!

  Thu. 12/16/10 6:01am Andy in Berlin:

...and a heavenly good morning to you!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:02am Dave B:

Aw heck
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:02am Thanley:

Hieronymous Bosch!!!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:03am Andy in Berlin:

@ Dave - no euphemisms necessary this is web only
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:03am Meghan:

exactly Hanley! Good morning all!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:03am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

  Thu. 12/16/10 6:04am Meghan:

Morning ALF!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:09am ?:

It certainly woulda been hell if I didn't have coffee!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:10am Thanley:

  Thu. 12/16/10 6:14am Thanley:

I have a good Bosch book that has close up shots of these.
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:16am Meghan:

The close ups are actually amazing. Some of those scenes could be paintings on their own....
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:17am Dave B:

I have a Bosh cordless drill... it looks nothing like this.

  Thu. 12/16/10 6:19am Dave B:

And Zappa's "Warning/Guarantee" is eerily apropos for today's theme, this show and WFMU in general.


  Thu. 12/16/10 6:19am Thanley:

  Thu. 12/16/10 6:21am Thanley:

They make good hammerdrills.
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:31am Dave B:

Not particularly heaven or hell, but has anyone seen "Civilization" by Marco Brambilla in the elevators at the Standard Hotel in NYC?

  Thu. 12/16/10 6:34am Meghan:

No... what exactly is it... and in elevators none the less....
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:34am Thanley:

Wow!! That is Amazing!!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:36am Meghan:

How does it know..... I may have to just go see this live....
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:37am Dave B:

it's a wicked video installation that transports between heaven/hell depending which way you're going.

Some download links here: http://dekku.nofatclips.com/2009/06/marco-brambilla-civilization.html

Absolutely nuts....

and SHANE!!!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:41am annie:

morning, meghan, great show so far, but had to take the headphones off for dolly..
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:41am Thanley:

My friend used to work at Dollywood!!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:42am Dave B:

@Meghan - here's a good interview / write up.

Well worth a trip

  Thu. 12/16/10 6:42am Meghan:

Morning Annie! Not a Dolly fan eh?
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:44am Andy in Berlin:

If I had been more on my toes I would have suggested Rolf Harris doing Stairway To Heaven. Actually Stairway To Heaven is probably a theme unto itself
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:45am Andy in Berlin:

Hey, good choice for Highway To Hell, by the way
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:46am Thanley:

  Thu. 12/16/10 6:50am annie:

i really try, i really do, but i just cannot get past her voice. great selections, though..
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:50am Dave B:

@Andy - somewhere on WFMU's BoTB there's a post with over 100 versions! Like Pokemon - gotta get 'em all!

RJD and the rest of Sabbath had put out an album and named the project Heaven and Hell due to contractual obligations. They couldn't call it Black Sabbath
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:53am Dave B:

\m/ RAWK \m/

Iommi, owner of the Black Sabbath name, decided to call the touring group Heaven & Hell to differentiate the project from the Ozzy Osbourne-led Black Sabbath.
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:54am Meghan:

ahhhhhh interesting....
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:55am Elwyn:

Hey everyone!

Those two covers were awesome. It reminds me of that great set of hillbilly covers from the "Black" show!

Fruitcups for everyone!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:56am Meghan:

Hey there Elwyn!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:56am Elwyn:

Haha! Meghan, you didn't expect the Sabbath to be that loud and had to turn it down! :-)
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:56am Dave B:

@Elwyn - Like!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:57am Meghan:

ha..... I just pulled it up, but I forgot the output on this channel is higher than the others..... Joys of radio....
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:00am Andy in Berlin:

Oh god! Why didn't I request This Monkey's Going To Heaven?!
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:02am Meghan:

cause you knew I was saving it for a Monkey theme....
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:03am Dave B:

ooh. Monkey Theme? Me likee!
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:05am Elwyn:

You should have an evolution theme:
Songs about monkeys,
songs about neanderthals
songs about humans

Must include Devo's "Jocko Homo". :-)
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:05am Andy in Berlin:

so then why didn't I suggest Credit In Heaven by the Suburbs
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:09am Thanley:

Nice!!! SK8 Rock!!
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:09am Dave B:

@Elwyn - you need to start a little further back

Adios Amoebas

  Thu. 12/16/10 7:10am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

SK8 or DIE!!
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:10am Thanley:

Skate theme?
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:11am Elwyn:

I remember a commodore 64 game called Skate or Die.
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:12am Thanley:

The Original SK8 game!
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:12am Elwyn:

You had to put up with a lot... but at least you didn't have to put up with Coldplay or John Mayer or Rush...
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:13am Dave B:

@Alf/Elwyn/T - 8 bit deliciousness!

  Thu. 12/16/10 7:16am Thanley:

That brings back memories. Nice one DB!!
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:21am Elwyn:

\m/ This is one rockin' girlie set! \m/
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:23am Dave B:

  Thu. 12/16/10 7:29am Thanley:

Mom used to say "Danny Snider, he was such a nice boy!"
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:31am Meghan:

  Thu. 12/16/10 7:33am Dave B:

Tom Jones - Burning Hell
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:35am Meghan:

  Thu. 12/16/10 7:49am JoshRVA:

This set just keeps getting better
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:50am Elwyn:

Yay for metal!

I wasted much of the first half of my workday studying the Map of Metal web site and the afternoon listening to Mastadon.
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:50am Dave B:

@THanley - 964 Pinocchio!
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:51am PKNY:

  Thu. 12/16/10 7:53am Thanley:

Hey Kath!!
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:54am Dave B:

Japanese Cyber Punk Horror.... that and Rubber's Lover are absolutely insane!

Hey Kath - a little Slayer to wake the kiddlet with!
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:54am Elwyn:

Would you like some heavy metal in your coffee and fruit cup?
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:55am Kath:

  Thu. 12/16/10 7:57am Kath:

  Thu. 12/16/10 7:58am Thanley:

Klingon Metal!!!!
  Thu. 12/16/10 7:59am Thanley:

  Thu. 12/16/10 8:02am Randy:

My students at Toledo Early College High School enjoying your set as usual. You are a big hit here.

  Thu. 12/16/10 8:06am Meghan:

@ Elwyn- Grinderman is coming to Australia! Go see him!!!!
  Thu. 12/16/10 8:07am Parq:

What we need is a "core" map. I once tried to come up with some silly core genres, and I thought I had done pretty well with "pizza-core" and "Jew-core". Imagine my embarrassment when I found out that both are real genres.
  Thu. 12/16/10 8:08am Elwyn:

I hate Klingons. This is one of the first things that came up when I googled "I hate Klingons":
  Thu. 12/16/10 8:09am Elwyn:

@Meghan: Don't you mean "them". :-) I know. I went past the venue on the bus this evening. Youi just want me to bootleg it, don't you? :-)

  Thu. 12/16/10 8:19am Elwyn:

This song kind of reminds me of my request for Wilco's "Hell is Chrome".
  Thu. 12/16/10 8:25am JoshRVA:

Meghan can see through Time!
  Thu. 12/16/10 8:31am Meghan:

  Thu. 12/16/10 8:39am messika:

Hell wins every time.
  Thu. 12/16/10 8:39am Meghan:

The best quote from it is- “Honestly, I am disgusted, ” said Irene Rider, 59, from Gary, Indiana. “I was with my grandchildren. We had just gotten off the bus. I said ‘look everybody’ and pointed up to the lights – but you know what the lights said? They said f**k off. And that is not an appropriate message for a child. At least not at Christmas time.”
  Thu. 12/16/10 8:40am Meghan:

Morning Messika
  Thu. 12/16/10 8:41am Dave B:

"at least not at Christmas"

  Thu. 12/16/10 8:42am Meghan:

Yep, it was THAT key line that made me laugh
  Thu. 12/16/10 8:42am messika, The grinchy jew:

OK, that is the BEST X-mas decoration I have ever seen. I would've thought I did it if I lived in London. HAHHAAAAAA!
  Thu. 12/16/10 8:42am jeff p:

  Thu. 12/16/10 8:46am Meghan:

  Thu. 12/16/10 8:49am Thanley:

The link I found it first on Had a little explanation. I think It's a Slayer Fan with Waaaay too much time to kill.
  Thu. 12/16/10 8:50am Dave B:

@Messika - http://www.stevethepro.ukf.net/xmas/

  Thu. 12/16/10 8:52am Elwyn:

  Thu. 12/16/10 8:53am Chuck:
