  Sun. 3/27/11 12:23am Dan in Ireland:

Well Kiss are responsible for mimicking/stealing riffs from various bands. But now that you mention it....they definitely stole it!

OK, I have to do this...

Oh my! It's like the same song....just with sloppier musicians ;)

  Sun. 3/27/11 12:27am Joe McG:

And stupider!
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:28am C in Thailand:

And much more lethargic.
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:31am Joe McG:

Hi, Thailand!
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:31am georgie girl:

  Sun. 3/27/11 12:32am C in Thailand:

Hello, America!
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:32am Joe McG:

I think you love it, GG.
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:32am georgie girl:

it's brutal but intriguing
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:34am Richard from Venezuela:

USA and argentina tied one to one. Great soccer game. Greetings to all.
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:34am Richard from Venezuela:

  Sun. 3/27/11 12:51am Matt from Springfield:

Oooooh, I'm shakin' in my desk chair!
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:52am Matt from Springfield:

YEEESSSSS! Thank you Joe! Did I ever tell you you're the best? Oh yeah...many times!
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:53am D. Blumin:

Joe, I agree with Matt and say: If Loving You Is Wrong, I Don't Want to Be Right!!!
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:54am fleep:

Get a room. Get several rooms.
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:54am Joe McG:

This kind of wrongheadedness I can stand.
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:55am Richard from Venezuela:

hahahahahaha.
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:55am Joe McG:

I LOOOOOOOVE Millie Jackson!
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:55am Matt from Springfield:

@fleep: Yes, get several rooms! In fact, keep listenin': Millie will have to get a whole hotel by the time this is through!
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:56am D. Blumin:

We GOT a room, Fleep! It's called Studio A!
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:58am Richard from Venezuela:

I love the millie jackson record called Back to the...
  Sun. 3/27/11 12:58am Joe McG:

Blumin is clearly overcome by Millie's rap.
  Sun. 3/27/11 1:00am Matt from Springfield:

@Dan, Joe: What happens in Studio A, stays in Studio A (but the audio gets out!)
UStream though has preserved many fine moments lately (I'm thinking Bryce, and Vicki dumping foods on him!)
  Sun. 3/27/11 1:00am Joe McG:

I know which one you mean, Richard. Quite a cover photo! I'm also pretty fond of ESP.
  Sun. 3/27/11 1:02am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks as well for playing the LP--it's not scratchy, very deep sounds and bass, and just enough surface noise to make it awesome for Surface Noise!
  Sun. 3/27/11 1:04am Joe McG:

Couldn't stop where I was supposed to: Bonus Millie!
  Sun. 3/27/11 1:05am Matt from Springfield:

And even "All I Want" at the tail end!!! Bonus Millie!!! Ecstasy!!!!
  Sun. 3/27/11 1:15am Richard from Venezuela:

Skatalites!!. Perfect for this night.
  Sun. 3/27/11 1:20am Matt from Springfield:

Nice Caribbean styles this set--great way to welcome in Spring and warm weather...hopefully no snow tomorrow!
  Sun. 3/27/11 1:33am Joe McG:

From your comment to the weatherman's ears, Matt.
  Sun. 3/27/11 1:34am Matt from Springfield:

Great start, a pre-punk "I Fought The Law" cover.

I wonder if we can also request weather patterns, using the AccuPlaylist.
  Sun. 3/27/11 1:40am hamburger:

AccuPlaylist: Show me potato salad!
  Sun. 3/27/11 1:40am Richard from Venezuela:

I love Eighties by Killing Joke and their cover "come as you are" by Nirvana.
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:11am slugluv1313:

do you have any KELLY FAMILY??!!??
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwzBuN7jfjw
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:13am Joe McG:

Ha ha ha! I won't pee the bed, I swear.
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:20am Matt from Springfield:

Joe: We're still out there, still enjoying Paranoid Cat! Too spaced-out to comment frequently but I'm loving Chris Forsyth!
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:22am Joe McG:

No problem, man! Commenting is not a requirement for this course. You can sit quietly at the back and doodle.
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:23am John F:

This Chris Forsyth is fantastic
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:33am slugluv1313:

i have four kitties and they, too, enjoy PARANOID CAT (although they want to know why there are not FOUR parts)
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:35am Joe McG:

Four kitties! That's 16 feet padding around your house!
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:38am slugluv1313:

yep! all kinda snoozy now though . . .
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:40am Joe McG:

I'm in Put Kitties (and Kiddies) to Sleep mode right now.
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:44am slugluv1313:

how many of each?!!
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:45am Joe McG:

As many as I can.
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:51am slugluv1313:

just had a thought -- do you think you all could get Station Manager Ken to "do" that Kelly Family song (with WFMU staffers as the rest of the "family" singing back-up) as the grand finale of next year's marathon?!?
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:51am Joe McG:

A funny picture you've given me, slugluv!
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:54am Brian in UK:

Late hello, Czar Joe, how do you like that name!!! It's not really you.
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:54am Matt from Springfield:

Ah...what a state of serenity that last hour's put me in!

Thanks for a FANTASTIC show in general, a vanilla/chocolate swirl of old and new music! I'm going to have to get that new Mountain Goats everyone talks about and I finally heard, Tragedy, Chris Forsyth and Daughters of the Sun--beautiful!
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:55am slugluv1313:

start constructing those *costumes* now! :)

i think it would definitely push donations way over the goal!
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:55am Matt from Springfield:

@Brian: Well, it doesn't really fit this show, but as the "Listener Service Czar", it works pretty well, as does "King of Swag"!
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:56am Joe McG:

Thanks for tuning in, as always, Matt. Have a great b'day!
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:56am slugluv1313:

and thanks for an awesome show!!!!!
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:57am Joe McG:

I think Bryce would enjoy it most of all, SL.
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:57am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Joe! Goodnight sweet dreams everyone!
  Sun. 3/27/11 2:59am Brian in UK:

Happy bidet Matt. Spelling never was my strong point. Think Spike Maligna
  Sun. 3/27/11 3:03am slugluv1313:

ha ha! true, after all, he used to play that FABIO CD during his shows!
