Listener comments!

  Wed. 5/25/11 12:06pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

aw, cute!
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:10pm Handsome Harry:

Good afternoon KG, as well as my fellow listeners. Great rendition of this tune by the Portsmouth Sinfonia.
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:15pm postmanpaul:

Nothing wrong with a little classical awkestra music KG. Not enough of it aired in my opinion.
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:18pm Carmichael:

I dig the high school kids making their own funky music.
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:18pm Handsome Harry:

These kids are on Ipecac Records? Awesome.
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:18pm BodegaMan:

Hello All.

DJ KG you're going to get yourself in trouble again when people start thinking this is another covers show.
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:19pm BSI:

The Widney kids have come a long way since the INSECT threats... although I dearly love the insect threats...
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:23pm goldblum:

Digging the old skull. Do you have "hot dog hell"?
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:24pm Carmichael:

Jeez, Old Skull dude. Relax. How 'bout a Fresca?
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:26pm Julie:

Yes..choke on their poop
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:27pm Robert:

Good. Time to show Irwin there are a TON of "Amanda"s out there. Dime a dozen.
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:30pm Handsome Harry:

I agree with you 100% Robert.
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:32pm Minnesota Jeff:

BONJOURRRR-RRR-PPPP!
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:32pm Julie:

David Soul-dier?
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:33pm Julie:

Clay Pigeon interviewed one of the "kids" from Old Skull a while back. He was not in good shape.
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:34pm hamburger / london:

holy, a whole LP full of different locked grooves :O
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:42pm postmanpaul:

Great dodgy sounds KG.
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:49pm Carmichael:

Syd!!
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:50pm Cheri Pi:

Love this song-on the new Record store Day comp.
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:53pm Syd:

The lunatic is in my head.
  Wed. 5/25/11 12:58pm Carmichael:

I just listened to Madcap Laughs last weekend. Deja vu ....
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:20pm Willon and Waylie:

Love that Neil Young track.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:21pm Looms:

Didn't know this track by The Slits, very nice stuff. Deeply enjoying the show so far.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:23pm BSI:

whoa....... different mix.
still, a favorite residents tune...
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:24pm DJ KG:

oh, have i not said hello yet? been too worried about this interview happening. hi everyone! thanks for tuning in.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:31pm Ricardo Montalban:

I was in the wrong playlist, comment bar. I spilled my drink on the way over here.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:32pm Ricardo Montalban:

THe MVD reissue of this makes me mad. Songs have audible gaps in the formerly seemless flow.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:37pm Ricardo Montalban:

Kurt: Have you heard MC Special K? http://fulllifeallstars.bandcamp.com/album/handirap
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:37pm Handsome Harry:

So true, so true.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:38pm That Guy:

missing today's laugh track.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:48pm Ricardo Montalban:

This is wonderful!
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:48pm ERICH:

Been listening in the car with the iPhone app.
Had I known the total theme for the show, I would have posted some KG and the B's tracks. Especially the Hotter Than Hell cover.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:50pm Brass Knuckles:

I don't know if I'd be applauding this long.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:51pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Ooh I just watched a Gunsmoke guest-starring a young Ricardo Montalban as a Native American. I had to suspend disbelief in his wonderful accent.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:53pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

did you ever extend applause just because you knew it would be awkwardly silent when you stopped?
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:53pm Ricardo Montalban:

He absolutely NAILED Kahn Singh's accent in Star Trek, though.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:54pm Cheri Pi:

it's on 1 but it sounds like 11!
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:54pm Ricardo Montalban:

Yes, I have, then been the only person still awkwardly applauding
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:55pm BSI:

ah yes, the clap. Very awkward.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:56pm Ricardo Montalban:

I always picture busloads of seniors singing this song when they go up north to buy prescription drugs.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:56pm Andy in Nova Scotia:

Greetings from Nova Scotia, Canada! It's all true!
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:57pm Handsome Harry:

Or try clapping way longer than is socially acceptable.
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:57pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

the clap is only awkward if you don't share
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:57pm Parq:

A Nihilist Spam Band tribute album -- well, why the heck not?
  Wed. 5/25/11 1:57pm Ricardo Montalban:

Their cars left parked in a Winco parking lot. I once asked a checker if they all return or if a car carrier takes all their cars away. She just looked at me, horrified.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:11pm pheezy:

Have you seen the recent BBC video interview w/ the Shaggs? http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00gtsj3
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:12pm Minnesota Jeff:

What would a tall man want from a short man? A Mazda Miata? Better of without I would say.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:12pm Handsome Harry:

Better than the Beatles.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:13pm Minnesota Jeff:

Better than Zappa at the very least.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:14pm Handsome Harry:

Haahaaahaa. Right on, Minnesota Jeff.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:16pm Carmichael:

She sings to talented-ly to play a Shagg.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:16pm Parq:

So the Wiggins sisters are played by actresses with sweet, Broadway-style voices. Excuse me while I savor the irony.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:18pm DJ KG:

minnesota gif - yes!
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:19pm DJ KG:

the actresses actually do a great job of singing like the shaggs, and even play the instruments. they pretty much nail it. but they don't sing the narrative songs the same way. they do a pretty great job overall in portraying how they sound to themselves and how they sound in reality.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:22pm Frisco Kid:

Got here just in time to hear Y Pants! Would you believe I still have this single? Found it in a San Francisco used record bin for $1 years ago. SCORE!
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:24pm Minnesota Jeff:

Ha, thats pretty great actually that the girls sing beautifully when they arn't performing as the Shaggs - but when its show time - BBBRRRRRPPPP! Just like Michigan J. Frog!
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:24pm Parq:

KG, this whole set is tremendous. I am rearranging my workload so that I don't have to leave my desk.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:25pm Orcus:

Re Shaggs Musical: Is it me, or do all Broadway shows sound pretty much like that? Wouldn't you think the composer might have gone in for some shaggsesque microtonality, possibly a prepared piano for that song?
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:25pm DJ KG:

aw, thanks parq!
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:28pm Minnesota Jeff:

DJ KG - This DNA song is making me think of this werid recoring where a guy and girl say "Mom" over and over again. I am thinking I heard it on here. It just went "Mom, mom, hey mom, mom, mom, mom look, mom, mom, hey mom, mom, look, mom look, mom mom..." And then I think hot dogs were introduced into the conversation. DId I hear that here???
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:29pm DJ KG:

YES! it's Lexie Mountain, mn gif. i thought of playing her on this show, actually.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:31pm J J:

+1 for Jake and the Fat Man reference. I forgot that show ever existed.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:31pm Marmalade Kitty:

I'm curious for mom now..
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:31pm Parq:

Orcus, I totally agree with you, and I think it really gets tiresome. While everyone else was going nuts over that musical about the delusional mom, I was sitting there thinking, "Oh no, not this theater-y soft rock *again*!"
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:32pm Frisco Kid:

Whatever you do, don't Google "mom mom hey look mom mom hot dogs" with SafeSearch turned off. Cuz that's what I just did. At work. Ooooops!
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:33pm PMD:

This all is great in headphones...
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:33pm DJ KG:

ha, frisco!

i was once working at an entertainment website and had to fact check something about the singer pink. thought i could just go to pink.com. nope.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:34pm Gaiwan:

<snorts>
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:36pm Robert:

I don't think BJ Snowden believed me when I told her they'd added a province, Nunavit, since that song. She said, "You're funny."
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:36pm Carmichael:

Daniel Johnston is one of my all-time faves.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:38pm ERICH:

Start released by TART in 1998.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:43pm DJ KG:

thanks, erich! and thanks for sending the track.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:46pm DJ KG:

actually i believe nunavut is a territory like the yukon and northwest, but yes, a recently created one.
  Wed. 5/25/11 2:53pm Minnesota Jeff:

I've been to Manitoba AND Ontario.
