Listener comments!

  Thu. 12/23/10 6:02am Chuck:

Morning! More dead people, so sad....
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:03am Meghan:

Ahhh yes.... it is sad
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:04am Dave B:

Greets Meghan and Jeff P.
(you too Chuck)
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:07am Chuck:

Salutations to you as well, Dave. Where did you get the list of those who have passed, Meg and Jeff?
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:09am Meghan:

Wikipedia! Though I have to comb through it all to pick out the good ones....
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:09am jeff p:

good morning, all!
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:09am Chuck:

Naturally!
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:10am jeff p:

I got the list the same way I got it last year - meghan handed it to me.
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:16am Chuck:

I'm just looking at Wiki's list for Dec. deaths. First, you've got to identify who was a music artist! Lots of names from every field...
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:27am Chuck:

One of my clients died just before Thanksgiving. She passed out in the bathtub and drowned. How f#@cked up is that?
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:28am Dave B:

NY Times has a pretty good multimedia list:
http://video.nytimes.com/video/2010/12/21/magazine/1248069471839/the-music-they-made.html
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:29am cory:

hi meghan! your show is prime time for me when i'm in denmark for xmas. miss you guys!
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:30am Meghan:

Hey Cory! Merry Xmas to you in Denmark!
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:30am Meghan:

Wow! That sucks Chuck! How did you find out?
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:31am jeff p:

like, randomly passed out or i was up drinking all night and now i think i'll take a bath passed out?
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:32am cory:

thanks. keep on rockin
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:34am Chuck:

Her husband called me trying to keep calm and not succeeding. I still have castings of her's here that she will now never see. *sigh*
No drinking involved, Jeff. She was in her 70s and had some other health problems last year. But, drowning in your own bath tub? Jeez!
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:36am Dave B:

death sux.
death around the holidays sux more
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:37am Chuck:

Seko was a real sweetheart of a person too. She brought me a home made smoked salmon spread that was just awesome! I will miss her...
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:46am Andy in Berlin:

It's sort of amazing that nobody you played so far - with the exception of Jay Reatard - was someone I came across when I was looking around for suggestions. I don't know whether to be impressed at your research abilities or depressed that so many people passed away this year.
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:47am jeff p:

Sad as it is, we've all got to go sometime. On the plus side, tho, you've got a good story.
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:54am Chuck:

Taco Bell? It's not even real Tex-Mex! Gross....
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:56am Dave B:

but if someone is the last speaker of a language, who is there to talk to?
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:56am jeff p:

he talked to himself a lot
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:58am Dave B:

I guess so. But how can we be sure it wasn't just jibberish to begin with?
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:58am Elwyn:

Hey everyone!

I'm fashionably late. I've been on holiday for a few days now and could not remember what the day of the week is until my iPhone told me it was UTP time!
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:58am Madi H:

I like Wendy's personally. Enjoying the show in a bittersweet way.
  Thu. 12/23/10 6:59am Chuck:

This group sounds like an AC-DC rip off band...
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:01am Meghan:

Awww thanks Madi..... Yes, it is bittersweet. But we all get to learn something today too!
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:08am Elwyn:

Everyone needs to see the single cover for this one:
http://la.curbed.com/uploads/2010_02_sharona.jpg
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:12am jeff p:

I have that same shirt at home and that's what I look like when i wear it, too.
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:12am mick:

that cover is pretty crap i have to say BUT i was pretty impressed by how good that song actually is....the drumming is pretty outstanding...
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:13am Dave B:

uh.... moobs...
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:13am jeff p:

"my sharona" has one of the best guitar solos of all time, too
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:14am jeff p:

Next time I'll wear my "bro", Dave.
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:16am Dave:

@jeff p - Was just thinking the same thing. Man thats a kick ass solo
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:19am Dave:

Berton Averre (born December 13, 1953; Van Nuys, California) is (was) the guitarist with the Los Angeles rock band The Knack.
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:19am Chuck:

Now this is weird! WVKR just played this yesterday afternoon...
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:20am Elwyn:

Is this song being played because Oates shaved off his moustache?
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:22am Chuck:

Death of a moustache, Elwyn?
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:22am jeff p:

Oates moustache: R.I.P.
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:24am Dave:

The world as we know it has ended. Pat Robertson of the Christian Broadcasting Network has just announced he is for the legalization of marijuana
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:27am Meghan:

  Thu. 12/23/10 7:29am George of Troy:

Section 25 sounds "kinda like Bauhaus"?? Now that hurts. Viva Larry Cassidy!!!!
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:30am Elwyn:

Oh! I loved Skippy!

I remember the death of Walter Koenig's son. I still can't believe they got away with nicknaming him "boner". In alternative universe is a "boner" not what everyone knows it is.
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:31am Chuck:

Now I've got the theme song from "Skippy" in my head...
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:32am jeff p:

@George: You're right. I was just thinking about the era and that's what jumped into my head. joy division was much closer.
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:35am Meghan:

  Thu. 12/23/10 7:42am jeff p:

AAAAAAAA I'M FRIGHTENED BY THE HAIR!!!!!!
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:42am Dave B:

WOW - now THAT'S a wicked 'do!
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:45am Kath:

It's a good day to die.
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:46am Meghan:

ha! mornin' Kath!
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:48am Chuck:

Morning, Kath!
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:49am Elwyn:

Morning/evening Kath!

Isn't that an old Klingon saying?
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:51am Chuck:

Actually, I think it's originally a Native American saying, Elwyn. Not sure what group it's attributed to...
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:52am Dave B:

http://www.alicia-logic.com/capsimages/ma_100LisaMarie.jpg
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:54am Chuck:

Nope Warwick Davis played "Willow"...
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:56am Elwyn:

@Chuck: The Klingons claim everything, even saying the "original" Shakespeare.... That's why I hate Klingons...
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:56am Dave B:

@Chuck/Elwyn/Kath - That quote is accredited to Crazy Horse, so it'd be Lakota
  Thu. 12/23/10 7:57am Chuck:

There ya go, kids! Thanks for the detail, Dave!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:01am jeff p:

Oh. My. God.

\m/ > < \m/
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:02am Elwyn:

@Chuck: But not Crazy Horse the band.
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:02am Kath:

Do you want to see some thing so, so, incredibly bad?
It's a good day to die.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIsv1YOFNys
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:05am Jefff:

I forgot that Pete Steele died this year. And if I remember correctly this is the second time this year that Type O Negative has made an appearance on UTP... who would have thought?
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:06am Dave B:

Aw yeah.... Guru was the man.

Smoove.
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:09am Meghan:

Oh yeah.... nothing like some FOLK to follow some Guru! ha!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:09am Chuck:

Yeah, it's pretty bad, Kath. Not to mention a complete disrespect of Robert A. Heinlein who wrote the book "Starship Troopers" back in the 50s. I've read it...
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:10am annie:

i've been listening meghan.. really i have.. good show so far.
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:10am Meghan:

hehe.... morning Annie!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:12am Dave B:

@meghan - its that juxtaposition of styles that make this show fun!

And my Soundbridge just crapped out... ARGH!!!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:14am Chuck:

Oh, Lena! RIP...
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:14am emmagineering:

I always hear this show when I'm driving home from grueling overnight shift here in atlanta. And it makes me happy, consistently. Cheers!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:15am jeff p:

that's so sweet!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:16am Meghan:

You made both Jeff and I awww at the same time. Thanks so much!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:16am jeff p:

\m/ > < \m/
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:17am Dave B:

RAWK!

WAKE UP NEIGHBORS!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:17am PKNY:

\m/(^^)\m/

Look out!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:17am Andy in Berlin:

Dio! (and this from the guy that was out of the room when you played Type O!!)
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:17am Jefff:

I really miss RJD
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:18am Dave B:

You shoulda played one of his Do Wop tracks though, just for fun
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:18am Meghan:

Andy! How dare you be out of the room!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:18am Andy in Berlin:

I really miss Pete Steele
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:19am Andy in Berlin:

...and I missed him again. thank god for the archives
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:26am Elwyn:

I'm guessing:
"Apparent suicide" = person died with auto-erotic asphyxiation.

Family and friends don't want it know that the person died under such circumstances. :-)
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:27am Elwyn:

Thank god you're not playing any Shitknot.
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:38am Andy in Berlin:

Oh my god! Not him?!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:45am Dave B:

sausages.
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:45am Meghan:

yes dave..... sausages......
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:47am Elwyn:

Big Bad John was morbidly obese from sausages, not mining.
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:47am Andy in Berlin:

Is nobody safe?
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:47am annie:

rolf!!!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:48am Meghan:

We all die..... at some point.... so no!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:48am Dave B:

  Thu. 12/23/10 8:48am jeff p:

Jimmy Dean had a big rivalry with Abe Froman.
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:49am Chuck:

The point of death is better sooner than later for some...
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:50am Dave B:

@Jeff P - one might even say they had a beef
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:51am jeff p:

*groan*

Good one!
  Thu. 12/23/10 8:52am Dave B:

  Thu. 12/23/10 8:52am Meghan:

  Thu. 12/23/10 8:55am Dave B:
