Listener comments!

  Wed. 5/11/11 12:05pm Happy Listener:

This "Bass Odyssey" has yet to leave port, IMO.
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:06pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings Kurt.
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:07pm Julie:

Oh no, you practice Sajakism
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:07pm hamburger:

imagine walking through a tiled room filled with minnestoa jeff animations!!!
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:07pm Handsome Harry:

Nothin' quite like a bass odyssey to get 'er started.
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:08pm BodegaMan:

spinning sajaks!
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:09pm 12539:

(I love these animated gifs!)
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:12pm dw:

What is the name for today (by Maclise definition)?
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:23pm jan:

If you keep up this torturous musical programming, someday you, too, might get invited to the Whitehouse, just like your predecessor Kenny G.
That's what he did regularly. I understand that the next stop after D.C.
will be Guantanamo Bay, where he will question some detainees.
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:26pm still b/p:

Thought that sounded Yoko-ish, and learned she and Henry were friends and creative associates. He performed in her loft.
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:30pm DJ KG:

i could only hope to follow in kenny g's footsteps. as a baby step, i've had his initials surgically grafted onto my name.
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:31pm DJ KG:

yeah, yoko was hanging with that crowd too! man, rock'n'roll wrecked her career...

hi everyone!
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:31pm 12539:

Aren't any bulls ever born?
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:31pm Julie:

I like the idea of Kenny subjecting the government to an hour of pain!
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:34pm ranjit:

Can we have garland hirschi's cows next?
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:35pm Cows:

Moo!
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:36pm ranjit:

how long does a great great great grandma cow live?
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:39pm Nanker de Tucson:

If dairy, then a 10-12 yr lifespan
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:42pm Handsome Harry:

I don't know about you, but I lost count pretty much right away. I think Slayer could do an excellent cover version of this piece.
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:43pm freznel:

if these were rabbits youd have to play a black metal song with double bass
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:43pm DJ KG:

SLAYER!!
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:43pm Bull:

Yeah, can I get some help here. I mean, fun's fun, but Jeez!
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:43pm DJ KG:

this tom johnson track goes really well with the spinning pat sajak!
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:44pm pheezy:

Now for the real question, how many times did he say the word "the" in the whole piece? Were you REALLY paying attention?
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:44pm still b/p:

And when do they come home, these cows?
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:45pm ranjit:

pheezy, i was distracted by the cow in a gorilla suit.
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:46pm DJ KG:

pheezy, like.
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:46pm dw:

Today is: establishment of the dreamweapon
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:47pm pheezy:

ranjit, you just warped to the 5th level.
  Wed. 5/11/11 12:48pm farm surfer:

Cowabuncha!
  Wed. 5/11/11 1:03pm Handsome Harry:

I wonder how often the Liverpudlian Cathedral Bell Ringers get together and rock out.
  Wed. 5/11/11 1:21pm kevin:

Is this Lou Reed on guitar?
  Wed. 5/11/11 1:23pm DJ KG:

actually tony conrad, i assume playing an amplified violin
  Wed. 5/11/11 1:34pm Kevin-SFCA:

Thanks for the Maclise!
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:04pm Guy with Nail Clippers and Four Oz. of Shampoo:

Tell the pilot I am sajacking this plane, effective immediately.
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:05pm Ike:

Backslash?!?!? Isn't that a regular slash!!!!! ISN'T IT?
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:08pm DJ KG:

oh christ, ike. yes, i suppose it's a foreslash. talk to ira the k about it.
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:10pm Guy with Nail Clippers:

I can forward slash you bad with these clippers! So turn this plane around now, or I will sajack your asses straight into the ground.
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:30pm GlyphBoy:

It would be unnecessarily stating the obvious to say foreslash. It's just a slash.
"Yo, saw a squirrel. It was a one-headed squirrel."
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:31pm Pat S.:

Have another spin, contestant!
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:34pm Woodland:

This so reminds me of childhood family picnics in the woods.
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:38pm Ike:

Thank you GlyphBoy. I was just thinking that. I would recommend that Kurt rename himself One-Headed Squirrel except that would infringe on DJ Rich Hazelton's WFMU conceptual squirrel territory and then they'd have to duel by smashing free jazz records over each other's heads until one or the other passes out.
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:39pm Vanna White:

As of now, I am in control here, given Pat's de facto incapacity.
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:42pm Ike:

You mean he's too dizzy from all that spinning?
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:43pm Vanna White:

Affirmative. I'm his Alexander Haig.
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:45pm Contestant:

More like Wheel of Misfortune
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:49pm Woodland:

Mommy, what's a "dystopic vortex of ennuie"?
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:49pm David Clayton-Thomas:

What goes up
Must come down...
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:51pm Mike East:

I just got a copy of this Aaron Siegel piece last week. 10 glockenspiels, right? I dig it.
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:51pm freznel:

great show
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:51pm Little Boy:

I've seen one-headed squirrels, more than once. They do exist!
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:54pm One-Headed Ike:

I dig this Aaron Siegel piece too. As for slashes, what does Ira the K know about it? I think he put a bad apostrophe in a song title just to annoy me, even though he doesn't know me.
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:55pm Ilene Forward:

There is a solidus among us.
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:58pm wiki:

The slash is a sign, "/", used as a punctuation mark and for various other purposes. It is often called a forward slash ...
  Wed. 5/11/11 2:59pm Reader:

I always read her name as "Petulant Clerk."
  Wed. 5/11/11 3:01pm Nay:

It is commonly *mistakenly* called a forward slash.
