  Mon. 5/9/11 9:35am Kevin:

  Mon. 5/9/11 9:35am Cheri Pi:

Captain Ahab is the man!
  Mon. 5/9/11 9:36am pierre:

Captain Ahab's greatness, striked me. Now i cannot go back from loving them…
  Mon. 5/9/11 9:36am Liz B.:

Here's the video of Captain Ahab's performance on WFMU (projections, puppets, fun!):

  Mon. 5/9/11 9:40am annie:

wow. i like this very much
  Mon. 5/9/11 9:41am paul:

ahhh so glad this is on the FMA! i played a show with them in my friends basement in new brunswick a few years ago and i'm pissed that i couldnt catch them this tour
  Mon. 5/9/11 9:43am pierre:

glad to see the video now, it didn't work while they played during Marty McSorley
  Mon. 5/9/11 9:50am BDR:

M+M! Yay.

oogao oogao oogao oogao!
  Mon. 5/9/11 9:59am Cheri Pi:

I have so much live band catch up to do this week, starting w/ Shannon and tha Clams.
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:02am jeff-m:

really digging this Whines song. Nice Monday morning stuff.
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:03am pierre:

great lives past week
(i mean every week)
but i felt spoiled last week.
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:18am Liz B.:

Anyone have a wedding story for me?
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:20am listener james from westwood:

a crazy-work-monday-belated thank-you, liz, for "echo beach." an old fave of mine from when WDRE/WLIR on long island played tons of 80s music/1-hit wonders.
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:21am Greg from Bloomfield:

My friend's (then) fiancee surprised him by hiring Eric Bachmann to play at the reception!
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:24am Liz B.:

Whoa, Eric Bachmann?? That is great/hilarious!
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:29am Liz B.:

Ever notice how they always play inappropriately themed songs at wedding receptions (infidelity, revenge, etc)? "Runaround Sue," "I Will Survive," and at this wedding I hit over the weekend, the radio edit of Cee Lo's "Fuck You" ("Forget You")!
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:31am Greg from Bloomfield:

"Hey Ya" has to be the king of those songs. Everybody ignores the "If nothing lasts forever / then what makes love the exception?" part and focuses on shaking it like a Polaroid picture.
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:33am still b/p:

A few decades ago, I saw the bride and groom (neither sober -- surprise!) fighting before the day's celebrating was done. I'm guessing that ain't so uncommon.
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:35am Chris T.:

I saw my old lacrosse coach doing a dance at a wedding that involved him using his shoe like it was a telephone
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:37am Pat Byrne:

I once was asked to film a wedding for a friend and my battery died before the vows. I never gave them the footage out of embarrassment. True story.
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:40am Liz B.:

Ha ha, the shoe-phone dance sounds pretty good!
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:40am Greg from Bloomfield:

@Pat- a buddy of mine had a similar thing happen while shooting P Diddy for some vodka thing. Needless to say, Mr. Diddy was not happy.
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:42am Lonious Monk:

bonjour Liz *-*
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:43am #K:

ah geez I thought Art Museums were singing "Scharpling....Scharpling"
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:43am pierre:

salut Lonious !
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:44am Pat's Friend:

So THAT"s what happened!
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:45am Dominick:

A player piano playing all Beatle songs in the foyer of the reception hall broke into Lady Madonna just as the bride arrived.
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:45am helsingfred:

great stuff great stuff
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:46am Lonious Monk:

hello pierre !
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:46am Richard from Venezuela:

Good morning Liz and all the listeners.
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:47am Liz B.:

Alright! Greetings to the Parisians and to Richard in So. America!
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:47am Cheri Pi:

I love The Limiñanas ; I wonder if their record is easy to find in the U.S.?
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:48am pierre:

Salut R from V !
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:49am Richard from Venezuela:

Hi Pierre.
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:50am Cheri Pi:

Salut Pierre!
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:55am pierre:

@ Liz : no wedding stories, i just know a guy who married an irish woman, and they had a celtic wedding with like a druid doing the ceremony and all. I saw some pics, pretty neat.
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:56am still b/p:

A perhaps over-cautious bride once asked for friendly opinion on whether Smoke Gets in your Eyes might be unsuitable for the groom and bride's mother dance -- a wrong note to hit on the happy day: "Yet today my love has flown away, I am without my love."
  Mon. 5/9/11 10:58am Carmichael:

Hi Liz and foreigners. Martha and her Muffins; enlightened choice!
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:00am Lonious Monk:

tell us more Pierre!
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:01am pierre:

"Rocket In My Pocket" by Jimmy Loyd is suitable/unappropriate

@Lonious : that's it - just that. I wish, but no.
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:05am frenchee:

"smoke gets in your eyes" is one of my fave songs of all time. If you want an "eyeful" wedding song, I recommend "I only have eyes for you"
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:07am helsingfred:

yes torture this miserable song, thank you !!
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:08am frenchee:

this is crazy unlistenable!
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:08am pierre:

(oh, and salut @ Cheri Pi)
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:08am βrian:

"Love is like a river."
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:09am Vinny in London:

Hi Liz,
In regards to inappropriate songs at weddings, my friend told me that he was a wedding recently in Scotland and that the bride and her father had a solo dance to the song "Your sex in on fire" by Kings of Leon whilst pointing at each other. Creepy
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:09am jojo:

where can i get that track that sounded like a dying record player?
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:10am Liz B.:

Jojo, hit Ethan Persoff for that track:
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:11am still b/p:

There are highland flings, and then there are highland family flings.
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:12am βrian:

Ethan Persoff makes sadism almost understandable.
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:13am jojo:

i wanted that "is that all there is?" song at my wedding but was vetoed...
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:15am Lonious Monk:

Calin - such a sweet band-name
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:17am Liz B.:

Wait till you see the next band name! It is pretty amazing...
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:19am jesse:

I've been enjoying these flogsta danshall 45s you guys are playing recently
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:21am Lonious Monk:

oh!nice too! (by the way the two guys from Calin have also great pseudonyme : Mad Marx & Eddy Mitchum - and thanks for the discovery)
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:23am still b/p:

Lazercrotch, if not careful, could be connected to Sex on Fire.
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:23am Liz B.:

Who came first, Lazercrotch or Sascrotch?
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:28am paul:

saskrotch has been around since the mid '00s
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:29am paul:

and he was wearing a Best Show On WFMU shirt last time i saw him, btw
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:29am R I S K Y !:

  Mon. 5/9/11 11:30am jesse:

Hi Liz,
I'm pretty sure this track is not by Morteza, it's by Toofan, called "Khodaye Asemoonha (God of the Skies)"
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:31am jesse:

there is a youtube video here:
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:33am Liz B.:

Thanks for the correction, Jesse, I guess the tracklist is totally incorrect for that one!
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:38am jesse:

yeah, I'm not a Farsi speaker myself but I got that from someone who is, so take however you like. I think they had to press the record before that correction made it on there.
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:47am Ike:

At first I thought you typed "Scratchcrotch! GNFAB. But then I realized it was Saskrotch. That's a bit disappointing. Between the two, I say Lazercrotch is a much more awesome name.
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:49am βrian:

I just don't get why events information is still read aloud. Give 'em a URL and be done with it, I say.
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:51am dc pat:

I don't see ANYthing wrong with this set so far...
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:54am Lonious Monk:

(very nice chalk circle!)
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:56am dc pat:

still going strong Liz B
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:58am Sasquatch:

You mock me.
  Mon. 5/9/11 11:59am dc pat:

great stuff, thanks Liz.
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:00pm jesse:

excellent show today, made my morning
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:13pm chris:

awesome show!!
  Thu. 5/12/11 11:12am Mariano:

Hey, I'm getting to your show a few days late, but it's just so perfect: my girlfriend's house is kind of in the woods, she's at work, and I'm sitting here with the front door open, working on my computer (I'm a graphic designer), and this show is providing the perfect soundtrack. Thanks so much, as ever!
