Listener comments!

  Thu. 1/6/11 6:01am Chuck:

Yo! I need to go back to sleep...
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:02am Meghan:

Ha! That was what I thought when I woke up!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:04am Chuck:

Well FMU will give you a show that airs when the sun is actually out some day...
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:05am Meghan:

I hope so! I could use a good sleep in on a Thursday! haven't missed a day yet!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:07am Chuck:

I know you haven't! That's dedication! Or insanity, I haven't figured out which...
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:08am Richard from Venezuela:

Good morning Meghan.
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:08am Meghan:

Let's say a little bit of both!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:08am Meghan:

Buenas Dias Richard! Esta bien?
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:10am Richard from Venezuela:

Todo bien. Gracias por la buena musica.
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:11am Meghan:

Claro! De nada!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:13am Andy in Berlin:

Good Morning everybody! and Happy New Year if it's not too late to say so.
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:14am Richard from Venezuela:

Meghan, in the playlist the artist is in the place of the track?
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:14am Meghan:

Of course not! Happy New Year Andy!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:14am Richard from Venezuela:

Good morning andy.
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:14am Meghan:

opps! See not awake!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:15am Nico in Sydney:

okay, we've already got Nth and Sth America, Europe and now Australia... we just need Asia and Africa and you've got the globe covered. perhaps we should excuse the Antarctic listeners...
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:15am Richard from Venezuela:

hahahaha, don't worry. :)
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:16am annie:

morning meghan!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:17am Meghan:

We'll let Antartica pass.... their fingers must be frozen! Welcome Nico! And Morning Annie!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:18am bennett4senate:

yo meghan are there any rap songs on your playlist? I feel like those dudes did some date-dropping in the 90s...
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:19am Meghan:

I have one...... but they dropped dates in the middle..... Maybe we should propose that to Noah!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:20am unclepoop:

fucking lame theme shows, this is the worst show on wfmu
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:21am Andy in Berlin:

Yike, only 19 minutes into the show and we've already gone 57 years! Hey by the way there's probably a whole set's worth of songs about 1984, no?
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:21am jamesie:

each to his (her) own
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:21am unclepoop:

by far
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:23am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Hey there everybody! Happy New Year!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:25am Chuck:

Morning all from upstate! NO SNOW! My back hurts just thinking about it...
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:26am Meghan:

Morning Jamesie and ALF!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:26am bennett4senate:

I don't see it in the library, but http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mt3vZHDiM8 is what I was thinking of :)
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:28am Meghan:

Grrrr, the computers up here are dead.... so I can't listen! Thanks Bennett!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:31am jamesie:

I heard you change the volume on your MacBook, you can turn that off! Hope John Cale Paris 1899 gets a track... possibly rejected because its the album title - we are in 50's now, too late!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:32am jamesie:

Paris 1919 sorry
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:32am Meghan:

Awwww damn! I missed that one! I knew I had a feeling i was missing an early one. hehe... yep, I usually adjust that earlier..... forgot today due to computer issues. Fun fun
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:34am Chuck:

Wow! First time hearing this group. Me like!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:34am jamesie:

I did that on my listener hour as well! - have a great year, Meghan
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:35am Meghan:

They are fairly new......
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:36am Meghan:

You too Jamesie!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:37am Robert:

Hong Kong joins the global role call.

Interesting theme.

Will we get to 2112?
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:38am Meghan:

Come on Africa! Hello Robert! We will go past 2112!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:39am Andy in Berlin:

@ Robert: at the rate we're going about a half hour
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:44am Chuck:

Ah, reminds me... Did The Alarm's "Spirit of '76" make the list, Meghan?
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:45am Meghan:

Nope, but Grand Funk and Ween took that year....
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:45am Robert:

Surprised we didn't have Louisiana 1927. Not a Randy Newman fan?
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:47am Meghan:

I think I have played him in the past...... I just didn't come across it in my searches......
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:49am Chuck:

Are there any 1978 songs, Meg?
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:50am jefff:

Best Band Ever! I just realized I missed 1952 Vincent Black Lightning... maybe a show about motorcycles?
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:51am Meghan:

Nope, it jumps to 1979.

Ha! Knew you'd love the Hoodoo Gurus Jeff! Let's see if there are enough songs about motorcycles....
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:52am Chuck:

Woo Hoo! Hoodoo Gurus followed by The Stooges! Sweet!
  Thu. 1/6/11 6:59am Dave B:

I'm sleepin like rip van winkle these days. How many years was that?
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:00am Theo:

1978 by The Gizmos
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:00am Elwyn:

Hey everyone!

I always blame Dave. It's just so obvious.

The Hoodoo Gurus give me mixed feelings. I am fond of their early days but I do think they sold out horribly when they modified their song "What's My Scene" to "What's My Team" to promote the NRL (either National Rugby League or National Rapist League depending on your perspective).

It feels like winter in Sydney right now.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:01am dirty old man:

Good morning! Anything for 1946? That was a great year for me.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:02am Dave B:

I'll be your huckleberry elwyn
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:03am Chuck:

Morning Dave and Elwyn! Was wondering when you'd check in...
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:03am Meghan:

Ohhhh, I'll have to check that one out Theo...... Not near the library now and the MP3 library up here is dead......

Nothing for 1946.....

You could say a lot of musicians sell out Elwyn.... playing their songs in commercials
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:08am Dave B:

It's all about the Benjamins
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:11am Elwyn:

I'm being harsh and unfair on the Gurus.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:12am Chuck:

Everybody's got to make some kind of living, Elwyn. And making it as a musician is tough!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:13am ?:

G F'N F R R !!!!!

  Thu. 1/6/11 7:13am Dave B:

That was me... (switched computers)
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:14am pierre:

Hello Meghan Happy new year from Paris which is BONNE ANNÉE !

Iguess you'll have no problems finding 1977's songs
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:14am Meghan:

ha! I kinda figured......

And as an artist Chuck!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:16am Meghan:

Bonne Annee Pierre! Yep, the Clash helped me out with that year!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:17am Dave B:

Ween is so good... Moist Boyz too!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:17am Chuck:

Yup, artists in general fit the hard to make a living class...
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:18am pierre:

that's exactly what i had in mind, you had also "1977 Yamaha CS30" from Benge, and 1977 from Dr Octagon (in hiphop).
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:20am Meghan:

Dr Octagon had a couple songs with years in the title...
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:20am Chuck:

Of course, mold makers too! If a sculptor has no work then neither do I!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:22am annie:

there was an old local access show out of chicago(?) with a guy who headlined and played the indie bands.. this was one of them. i LOVED that show..
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:22am Elwyn:

@Chuck: ever since entering the world of Stars Wars costuming, I've been learning about casters and people who recast, much to the annoyance of casters.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:22am pierre:

yeah, that is true, if you go this far, there is a song called 3000 in his album Dr. Octagonecologyst.
But anyways, you seem to have managed everything.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:25am annie:

late 70s... about the time i turned the radio back on..
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:26am Chuck:

He he... I know how to do all that stuff, Elwyn. I can do prosthetic make up too with the skills I now possess...
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:27am Richard from Venezuela:

I request an album. 1965 by The Afghan Whigs. :P
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:28am Chuck:

Problem is I live in upstate New York, not Hollywood...
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:29am annie:

meghan; you recall that show?
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:29am eric:

Hi all! Happy theme...Happy Head by The Mighty Lemon Drops.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:30am annie:

"don't worry, be happy"
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:30am Dave B:

Todays show is like a musical Tardis!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:31am Meghan:

Oh, Eric! Glad to hear from you! Great request!

Annie, I don't recall the show. I only went to school in Chicago, lived outside Boston for most of the 80's
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:31am Richard from Venezuela:

Yeah Dave Dr, Who represent!!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:31am Elwyn:

@Chuck: can you make people look like a Terminator with skin blown off the metal endoskeleton?

@Meghan: will you be playing Guided by Voices' Dayton Ohio 19-something and 5?
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:32am annie:

i used to watch it each week.. even got my kid into it, he was only 5
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:33am Chuck:

Time And Relative Dimensions In Space... How geeky is it knowing this?
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:33am Elwyn:

I want to go to another 80s party but this time, dress as Patrick Bateman in a suit and raincoat and talk about the brilliance of the album "Fore".
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:34am Dave B:

Reagan Youth - Are You Happy goin up to where you can get it! Delicious early 80s NYC Punk!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:34am Chuck:

Could take a little research on my part, Elwyn, but I'm sure I can figure it out...
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:34am Meghan:

Maybe I should have started the show with the Dr. Who theme eh?
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:35am Dave B:

@Elwyn - don't forget the big shiny axe, and a rag doused in chloroform
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:36am Dave B:

Meghan - if you can find the Dr Who theme, maybe loop it for the V.O. bed...
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:36am Chuck:

I'm still waiting for the new season of Dr. Who to begin. Does anyone know when it's due?
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:36am pierre:

…or some dialogues between the Doc and Marty McFly. But again this might be like the "smell like teen spirit" problem, heard to many times.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:37am Dave B:

@Chuck I think next week on BBC America

And Todd! Going to see Utopia in a few weeks!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:38am pierre:

cannot wait for 1986 !
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:38am Meghan:

uh oh..... I don't have an 86.......
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:41am Dave B:

Robert Fripp - 1986 from Let The Power Fall... Only 5 minutes long. Unlike 1984 from the same @ 12 mins
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:41am Chuck:

There is no way you could have NOT played this, Meghan....
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:42am Dave B:

Its up in my Dropbox folder...
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:42am Andy in Berlin:

since we have been traveling through the years I thought of doing one on Time. But of course that's been done. But have you done the hours of the day?
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:44am Meghan:

That could be the next numbers theme...... time, in numbers!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:45am jamesie:

Parry Gripp yaaaaaaayyyyy!!!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:45am Richard from Venezuela:

hahahahaha, Bowling for Soup
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:46am Richard from Venezuela:

This playlist is a true classic. To my favorites in Fifefox.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:48am Dave B:

Couldn't pass this one either. Such a good bass line..
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:48am Andy in Berlin:

So as one listening not only 6 hours into the future but also, courtesy of Real Player, at the same time approximately 8 minutes in the past, I like that Todd Rundgren song! But Bowie is really Disco-ing out - eeeps!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:49am Elwyn:

@Dave: I think I'd have to be careful about carrying any sort of imitation weapon in pubic. Cops are a bit more trigger happy these days. A few years ago, Some guy in a Star Wars costume even got all his obviously non-working weapons confiscated just because a tiny bit was sticking out of his backpack.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:50am kath:

1001001001, I am here!

Love the Wings choice, btw!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:51am pierre:

Boards of Canada – 1986 Summer Fire
Tachenko — 1986 (i don't know this one…)
Pati Yang – 1986 (don't know this one either)
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:51am Meghan:

hey there Kath! You missed your Sisters of Mercy request! Hope you are all packed up! When is the move day?
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:52am Chuck:

Morning, Kath!
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:52am Dave B:

Greets K.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:52am Andy in Berlin:

@ Elwyn: I remember seeing The Empire Strikes Back in Times Sq. and at the end of the movie the guy in front of us stood up with a broadsword which he proceed to wrap up in a black cloth and put it in a bag. I guess those days are gone. [sigh]
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:53am Meghan:

I did have a Boards of Canada song..... but dropped it while trying to figure out what to drop due to time...
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:54am kath:

yes, I see, love them Sisters! Not very packed, staying an extra month, Feb 28th.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:54am pierre:

yes sorry, you are right.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:54am Parq:

G'morning, Miss Meg and crew. It's been a while, eh?
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:55am Parq:

As usual, I'm knocked out by your research skills. I've never even heard of more than half of these songs.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:57am Chuck:

I had my sword taken away at a Halloween party in the Student Union building at college back in '83, Andy. There is no justice...
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:57am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Speaking of years and what not, did anybody think something catastrophic was going to happen when 2000 came about?
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:57am pierre:

You are completely right for the Kate Bush sound on Joanna Newsom. I was thinking the same thing.
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:59am Richard from Venezuela:

Shiny Happy People by R.E.M
  Thu. 1/6/11 7:59am jeff p:

awww, no boards of canada?
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:01am Chuck:

One of my co-workers did at the time, Andy. Of course, Maureen was a little nuts. Remember, Meg?
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:02am Dave B:

@ALF - all that Y2K re-meditation for naught.. Although I did have to virtualize a few systems where I was at the time in order to keep them running..
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:02am Richard from Venezuela:

Thanks for the Adrian Belew Song.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:02am Meghan:

I kinda giggled at the idea of the end of the world or the computer thing for 2000. Yet I still kinda giggle at it. I feel it's been the end of the world way too many times since I have been alive, so I kinda don't care when it happens now!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:02am Chuck:

Y2K! Y2K! The world is gonna melt down!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:03am Dave B:

I second Richard's thanks. Adrian Belew is the goods...
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:03am Meghan:

hehe, yes Chuck! Though she was armed with a stick.... not a sword. "We're all gonna die"!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:03am Chuck:

The world IS gonna end. In about 5 billion years...
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:03am Elwyn:

Gonna happen in 2012 now or 2112!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:04am Dave B:


  Thu. 1/6/11 8:04am jeff p:

the thing about y2k was that there was an actual possibility that something bad WAS going to go down. No one knew for sure. A lot of people spent a lot of time fixing a lot of problems.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:04am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

@ Dave B I miss that show! LOL!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:04am Richard from Venezuela:

Home - Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros Acoustic Cover (Jorge & Alexa Narvaez) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L64c5vT3NBw&feature=player_embedded# . The cuttest video in the all wide world.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:05am Meghan:

Richard, I do love that song......
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:06am Dave B:

If Meghan plays Ru-bbi-sh, JT, GD, JM... THEN THE END IS NIGH!

  Thu. 1/6/11 8:06am Andy in Berlin:

Hey for the time of day show, what about Dukes of Stratosphere song "25 O'clock"?
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:06am jeff p:

btw you can check out a lot of the best mst3k shows on netflix streaming
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:07am Richard from Venezuela:

@meghan I love the both versions. What a great song.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:08am Dave B:

I downloaded a monster torrent of MST2K - not the greatest quality on some of the earlier ones, but none the less!

Morning Jeff P = hope yer feelin better. Tekserve turned down my repair...
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:09am jeff p:

@dave b: really? why?
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:10am pierre:

- Francis Bay did a song called One o'clock Jump.
- ? and the mysterians (one of the best band name ever) did Ten O'clock
- The Lovin' Spoonfull did Six O'Clock

there you have 3 hours covered. And to all, MST3K is a great show, even if it never got aired in France (discovered it later with the help of the internet).
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:10am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

I still gets mine in the 1-9-9-9!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:11am Dave B:

Out of warranty. They're blowing smoke up my bum... I'll swing by Apple this weekend, and if that fail www.powerbookmedic
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:12am Meghan:

Andy, wrote it down!

Thanks Pierre, wrote yours down as well!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:13am Elwyn:

I don't actually know anyone who worked on the Y2K bug.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:13am Chuck:

Purely out of curiosity, what was everyone's most memorable year? Mine was 1984...
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:14am jeff p:

@chuck: probably 1995
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:14am glenn:

dave b. - if you were stevie nicks, you could have a roadie blow cocaine up your bum through a straw.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:15am Meghan:

I think mine is 1988......
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:16am Chuck:

Hopefully they are memories of very GOOD years folks!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:16am Dave B:

@Chuck - depends on the memories.. 1977 was good. 1980 was bad...
@Glenn - that might lead to a deviated rectum.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:17am jeff p:

Nearly killed 'em.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:17am pierre:

@ Meghan : you mean on facebook?

@ MST3K fans : does anyone go see this website http://www.trailersfromhell.com
it's pretty good.

1995 was memorable year, just bought my first ever compact disc.

Eating an arepa. Yummy!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:19am Dave B:

@Jeff P - ~snort~
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:21am Chuck:

Woof, Bosco!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:22am jeff p:

should do the winter show from iceland....
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:22am kath:

Time to Wake the Donut! Later....
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:22am glenn:

that snippet came from a book about fleetwood mac, i forget the title. so, my question is - what's your favourite book about music/bands?
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:23am Dave B:

Should have ripped the Conan song.

"In the year two thousand!"
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:23am glenn:

i didn't know the donut had died! now what do i do?
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:23am kath:

I haven't read any Chuck, but i would think a book about Zappa would be he most facinating!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:24am Chuck:

I can live without the flying cars, but why can't we have solar power!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:24am Dave B:

Clapton's Guitar - about a luthier from West Virginia who told Clapton to take a number..
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:25am jeff p:

I hate Crapton.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:25am glenn:

if you mean chuck klosterman, he's a great writer.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:26am Meghan:

I hate Clapton too.... I just don't find him to be interesting. I feel the same way about John Mayer too....
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:26am Chuck:

Haven't read many books about bands. I do have one about Blondie that's quite interesting though...
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:26am Elwyn:

Ha ha. I'm cutting and pasting this from wikipedia:

2112 is one of two Rush albums listed in 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die (the other being Moving Pictures). In 2006, a poll of Planet Rock listeners picked 2112 as the definitive Rush album.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:27am Richard from Venezuela:

WALTER/HALVORSON/EVANS - ON TOUR IN JANUARY! . Nice pic of them http://nowave.pair.com/ugexplode/images/walter-halvorson-evans%204201.jpg
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:27am Cheri PI:

I haven't heard this song in AGES! reminds me of highschool
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:28am Dave B:

The book is more about the art of building guitars. A really good read - Wayne Henderson is the luthier, Allen St John the author.

Best part is Henderson was like "who wants a guitar?" and then sat on the order for about five years..
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:29am Elwyn:

@Meghan: have you heard the song "Very Missionary" by Maow (an early band of Neko Case). In summary, there's hating on Clapton and praise for Hank Williams.

@Dave: just before the holidays, I finished reading "Our Band Could Be Your Life".
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:29am pierre:

Yeah the Reziillos represent Scotland !
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:30am glenn:

i don't hate eric clapton at all. the yardbirds, john mayall, cream. good stuff. after that though, he does kinda blow. peter green is a far better guitarist, and a way more interesting guy.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:30am Meghan:

I got to say my favorite was Black Postcards. Partially cause it was an autobiography and was really well written
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:30am jeff p:

I'm not huge on band books, but I found this one facinating

  Thu. 1/6/11 8:30am Richard from Venezuela:

The rezillos song. Awesome to dance alone in the bedroom.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:31am Chuck:

Makes me wonder if any group will ever put out an album that's basically a rock opera ever again, Elwyn. Probably not...
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:31am Meghan:

I haven't heard that song Elwyn.... I'll have to check it out
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:31am Dave B:

I did run into Clapton once on the East Side. Shook his hand and told him to have a nice day...

and to all UTP attendees, the Big Audio Dynamite version of "1999" can be heard here:


Your Google Fu skills will lead you to a download.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:32am Meghan:

Jeff and I always thought that the next rock opera should be done by 80's metal singers. They can hit those high notes. The theme would be either about vikings or about Native Americans...... We have thought this out
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:32am Dave B:

"Google Fu" courtesy Jeff P.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:33am Chuck:

LOL, Meg!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:33am Andy in Berlin:

[sound of hand slapping forehead] Totally forgot about the Stones 2000 Man!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:34am Dave B:

Gong - c'est magnifique!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:35am jeff p:

Doesn't Queensrÿche already to rock opera stuff?
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:35am glenn:

"in the year 2525" by i forget who just at the moment.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:35am Meghan:

Andy, 2000 light years? I had it, but since it was not really a year, more of a measurement, i figured it didn't work
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:35am Dave B:

"Do you like Viking movies Timmy?"
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:36am Richard from Venezuela:

WFMU's Blast of Hot Air: January 2011 in my email. What a great day :D
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:36am Meghan:

I know that Sebastian Bach was on Broadway..... not sure about Queensryche....
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:36am jeff p:

There's I Am A Viking by Yngwie Malmsteen
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:36am Chuck:

This brings to mind the fact that we've known each other for at least 10 years now, Meg. Strange the passage of time...

Zager and Evans, Glenn...
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:37am glenn:

sebastian bach is also in the gilmore girls. a good character.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:37am jeff p:

there's still time for 2112, everyone!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:38am Andy in Berlin:

Not 2000 Light Years, 2000 Man. Same record though.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:39am Chuck:

Jeff P, I don't think Meghan will play it. It's the whole first album side and there's only 20 minutes left in the show!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:39am Dave B:

Not quite Vikings, but Chrome Hoof has the look!


2112 !!!!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:39am Andy in Berlin:

Hey what happened ot 2525?
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:40am Chuck:

Plus she can't stand Rush...
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:40am Meghan:

Holy crap.... you are right Chuck!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:40am Elwyn:

I want a rock opera with David Lee Roth portraying King David. Roth has his Jewishness, his dance skillz and natural lasciviousness that makes him an obviously and fitting choice.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:40am Richard from Venezuela:

1972 by Josh Rouse. Awesome song and record.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:41am jeff p:

she doesn't have to play the whole thing, only the overture!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:41am glenn:

i can't stand rush either.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:42am Meghan:

I don't have to play any of it...... ever.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:43am Dave B:

OK, if not 2112, how about that Dianne Sawyer song?

  Thu. 1/6/11 8:43am jeff p:

No, you don't <i>have</i> to.... :-)
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:43am Chuck:

Hum, 2080... I'll be 120 by then. Wish me luck!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:44am jeff p:

♫ And the meek shall inherit the earth.... ♫
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:45am Dave B:

  Thu. 1/6/11 8:46am annie:

i thought it was the meek shall inhibit the earth..
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:47am Chuck:

Oh, DB! That song was the story of my high school years! Conform or be Cast out! Of course, I was cast out...
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:48am Dave B:

Here ya go Glenn and Meghan (Jeff you might like it too!)

  Thu. 1/6/11 8:49am Elwyn:

I'm still wondering when we're going to get some Shatner played! I'm your sponsor and demand some of the Shat! ;-)
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:50am Meghan:

ha! I don't OWN any Shat!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:51am glenn:

wow. i didn't think she'd play it. face it, it's a terrible piece of music. it's like macarthur park, except with years, not cakes.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:51am Roscoe from Chicago:

How about Television - 1880 or so?
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:51am jeff p:

sure, you won't play 2112 but you'll play this piece of crap! :-)
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:52am Jim Devoid:

Yeah, I needs me some pimply faced Canadian Rawk!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:52am Dave B:

The Shat is where its at!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:53am Chuck:

No mystery that this is the only song by Zager and Evans that did anything chart-wise, Jeff P...
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:53am glenn:

play some tragically hip for jim devoid.
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:54am Chuck:

Eventually we will all be dead, Meg....
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:55am jeff p:

@glenn: that'l be "happy hour" on the happy show next week!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:55am Dave B:

Check the UTP Facebook wall for Resolution clip!
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:55am glenn:

ahead by a century.......
  Thu. 1/6/11 8:56am Jim Devoid:

Baby Jesus cries big tears for no 2112...

Re the substitution in "What Are We Gonna Do In '64?", excellent choice. That Califia CD is pretty good all the way through, too.
