Listener comments!

  Sun. 7/24/11 12:06am DJKurtG:

woohoo! first comment!
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:09am DJKurtG:

joe king mcgasko, have i ever heard more than one david essex song in my life? is that not possible?
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:09am Joe McG:

King Kurt!
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:10am Minnesota Jeff:

Whoa, I had no idea that "Rock On" (song) was from 1973! That Streetfight song was amazing. Does that whole album sound like that???
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:13am Joe McG:

I wish, Minnesota Jeff. Just "Streetfight" and "Rock On' have that amazing production. The rest is poppy and disappointing.
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:13am DJKurtG:

hey mn gif!
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:16am Minnesota Jeff:

Heya, Kurt! Just so you don't get any ideas, I DO NOT have a Surface Noise Sports Desk - its exclusive to Miniature Minotaurs.
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:19am DJKurtG:

hahahaha! well, we need daily sports updates, no? i don't need to hog all the newsgathering.

also - bram tchaikovsy? damn!
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:21am Minnesota Jeff:

Well, with permission I will do what I can. I didn't want some wild fist fight to break out over the Sports Desk.
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:22am DJKurtG:

just don't be giving no one else no moving pictures!
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:30am Minnesota Jeff:

Joe, if you can keep this song selection pace up all night you are bound to win a Major Award. CH-CH-CH-HOICE Selections!
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:33am DJKurtG:

yeah, nice to hear the crazy backwards alfphas!
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:34am DJKurtG:

hey, i left that "how to pronounce" german book there. i thought we needed it. bloomin' dan blumin, you'll have to supply the russian pronounciation book.
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:38am Ike:

Overall, cock rock is grodey to me, but that overly manly version of "I'm a Believer" was pretty goddamn funny.
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:44am Joe McG:

Hey, Ike, don't usually see you around these parts...
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:49am Hell's Kitten:

whiiiiiiiiiiinehouse
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:50am Ike:

Yeah Joe, depends on whether or not I am too busy out there sexxxin' up all the ladies all over town (har har) etc. etc. BTW that there Analog Africa thing was SUPREME so thx for playing that!
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:50am Hell's Kitten:

sorry..I been holding that in for hours
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:52am Joe McG:

No prob, Ike, glad to have you aboard. Hey, Hell's Kitty! Let it out!
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:55am DJ Julie not DJ Kurt:

Do you have any songs about pie?
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:56am DJKurtG:

joe, pop a pie!
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:56am Joe McG:

No, but I have a song about logs coming up.
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:57am DJ Julie not DJ Kurt:

I would be happy with the Pop-o-pies but their song is about doughnuts, hence, not pie-related.
  Sun. 7/24/11 12:58am DJ Julie not DJ Kurt:

I wonder if McKee has done a baked goods theme...hmmmm
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:01am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Joe! Hi Kurt and Julie!

MILLIE!!! She keeps our soul fires burnin'!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:01am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt. Yes, we're moving into the weekly Millie Hour.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:02am Hell's Kitten:

Milli Vanilli?
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:02am fleep:

It's not about logs. It's about "logs" Yo Yo Joe!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:02am DJKurtG:

savoy truffle?

i used to have husker du's "land speed record" on a cassette a friend made me with no info, so i always thought "first of the last calls" was "baked alaska," which didn't seem very punk to me...
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:02am Hell's Kitten:

logs and "thangs"
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:03am Matt from Springfield:

Are we REALLY getting an hour of Millie?!

Ha ha! Love these spoken interludes! When Millie starts talking, you're in for some fun!!!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:03am DJKurtG:

matt, i think i've asked you before, but which springfield?
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:04am DJKurtG:

hour of millie! DO IT joe king mcgasko!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:04am DJ Julie not DJ Kurt:

Matt is a Simpson. He is yellow.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:04am Matt from Springfield:

@Kurt: Virginia. The whole damn county I would burn down is Fairfax, outside of DC.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:05am DJ Julie not DJ Kurt:

I have a friend Kurt in Virginia. He is always posting photos of meat on facebook.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:06am Matt from Springfield:

Ah, Julie's seen my FB profile! I have a "Simpsonized" picture of me I use for my pic. I sometimes make a joke about living near Evergreen Terrace...

What kind of meats? Any lamb? Cured bacon?
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:07am DJ Julie not DJ Kurt:

Any kind of meat. The man seems to be obsessed.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:08am DJ Julie not DJ Kurt:

Joe do you have any songs about meat?
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:08am Hell's Kitten:

meat pie!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:09am Joe McG:

I'm playing one right now!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:10am Matt from Springfield:

Or at least any pie related songs. I just had a warmed slice of cherry pie and vanilla ice cream! My thoughts turn to pie!...

Where in PA are you from Joe? Do you have Green's Ice Cream there? I learned that from central PA, and there are a couple stores down here that stock it.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:11am Matt from Springfield:

Manufactured in West York, readily available around Harrisburg. It's a brand I look for when shopping for ice cream.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:11am Joe McG:

@Matt: Yeah, we have Green's there. Turkey HIll also comes from my home state.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:12am DJKurtG:

PLAY WARRANT!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:12am DJKurtG:

matt, hey! i'm from a midwestern springfield. always longing for the day i find a listener out there.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:13am Matt from Springfield:

Yeah! Turkey Hill is good, there aren't any 7-11s where my Mom was from--TH is the omnipresent mini mart. Turkey Hill ice cream is more widely available all over East coast stores now.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:14am Matt from Springfield:

@Kurt: Cool, is it IL? MO? I know at least one listener is from MO. Lemme check the past playlists...
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:14am DJ Julie:

Great now I want ice cream. Thanks a lot.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:15am DJ Julie:

All I have is popcorn and a REALLY massive bottle of rum
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:17am T-Zero:

About a year ago I got a TH across the street. A Kroger franchise. I do like their ice-cream.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:18am Matt from Springfield:

At least your rum supply is replenished! "Rum Supply" would be a good band name, or, "Rum Rations".

Remember what I said about cream soda and rum--you can have a vanilla experience if you mix that rum with that, or root beer...
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:18am DJ Julie:

I always thought Barry McGuire sounds like a muppet
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:19am DJ Julie:

can you say pixie puck on the radio?
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:20am Matt from Springfield:

Great Joe Simon, sounds great on the LP!

@Julie: The Henson version would be named "Barry McFire", and would be a crazy-haired hippie that plays a guitar (permanently attached to his right hand).
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:23am Matt from Springfield:

I'm fairly sober tonight--last night I was on da gin...
"I drank an ocean of gin / What a sin"...

@Kurt: Brian Turner from 6/28/11: it wasn't listener Carmichael, but he said his friend Mike is from Springfield, MO. See if Carmichael will refer him to your show!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:25am DJ Julie:

This isn't the lizard king
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:25am Matt from Springfield:

A Jim Morrison meets Van Morrison style?
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:25am DJKurtG:

matt spfld: il, not mo, but thanks. also, bourbon and cream soda is better than you might think. also, i hate the doors so much that even parody makes my skin crawl. WARRANT "CHERRY PIE" JOE KING MCGASKO!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:26am DJ Julie:

So many people have such a seething hatred of the Doors.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:28am Ike:

Hey, hot damn, real creative resurgence for Weird Al here, or what? Great song. Wow, according to Wiki, "...Ray Manzarek was brought on board to recreate the music style for the song."
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:28am DJ Julie:

the talking part really sold it
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:29am Matt from Springfield:

..but at least there are fans of cream soda, and their mixed-drink possibilities!

Hi Ike! Weird Al has used the original session musicians in his songs before, but Manzarek is quite a coup!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:30am DJ Julie:

what else is he doing, really?
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:30am Matt from Springfield:

Yeah! Pie after all! Mmmm, pie......
πππππππππππππππππ!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:30am DJ Julie:

Speaking of Rays, this is very Ray Davies sounding to me. But yay Pop-o-pie!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:30am Ike:

Ha, good point.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:31am DJ Julie:

reminds me of 80s era kinks
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:32am DJ Julie:

We luvs Joe McGascan
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:33am DJKurtG:

DAMMIT
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:33am DJ Julie:

Check the mp3 library
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:33am DJ Julie:

or do a clay pigeon and play it off youtube
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:35am Joe McG:

Wow, Julie, you're really trying to make me work. For WARRANT?
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:35am DJKurtG:

ha!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:35am fleep:

We were really easily amused in 1976.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:35am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Maybe Mr. Pigeon has the Warrant record!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:36am DJ Julie:

I am just trying to make Kurt happy. The pop-o-pie and Doors parody made me plenty happy :)
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:36am Matt from Springfield:

In fact this is an ideal novelty 45 for Clay to intro, AM DJ style!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:36am DJ Julie:

@Matt no doubt!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:37am DJ Julie:

oh man this is horrifically awful
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:37am DJKurtG:

thx,jules
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:38am Matt from Springfield:

Joe, what was that?!! Switching to 45 speed? You OWE us that creepy, bass-heavy 33 version sometime later!!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:39am Joe McG:

You got it, Matt--at the end of the set!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:39am DJ Julie:

oh and there's always spotify which is on the computer now
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:39am Matt from Springfield:

Many thanks, Joe!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:45am DJ Julie:

Does this sound like Ode to Bily Joe to anyone?
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:46am Matt from Springfield:

Not the rest of the song, but the opening instantly made me think of "Ode to Billy Joe".
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:47am DJ Julie:

she was even talking about food though wasn't she..there were bits
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:49am DJKurtG:

oh, sure, springfield va gets springsteen pointer sisters covers at the wrong speed and springfield il can't even get some classic hair metal?
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:50am DJ Julie:

I think you should file a complaint!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:51am DJKurtG:

oh, ken will be hearing about this for sure.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:52am Matt from Springfield:

Are you accusing Joe of region-ism? Hmm, it does seem you can grease the wheels with him by mentioning his home state ice creams...
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:52am Joe McG:

My fellow DJs are clearly rabblerousers.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:53am DJ Julie:

My home state can beat up his home state. Besides, we have guns :)
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:53am fleep:

Greasing wheels with ice cream won't work, the butterfat breaks down quickly
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:54am DJKurtG:

shit, my rabble all OVER the ceiling and shit.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:55am Matt from Springfield:

@Kurt: "Fire" was first released by Robert Gordon during 1978, so actually anything besides Springsteen or the first version is the cover.

Have you ever released those minotaurs of yours on Joe?
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:55am DJ Julie:

Thank you for that word picture, scribe
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:55am Joe McG:

@Julie: Don't underestimate Pennsyltucky. We're badass.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:57am DJ Julie:

All I know is when you're trying to get to someplace else and you have to drive through it, it goes on FOREFFINGEVER. And there's like a sign, "entering the wilds" or some such silliness
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:57am Matt from Springfield:

@fleep: Also I end up eating said butterfat...
@Julie: I dunno, if you're talking 'bout Houston v. Chicago, I won't stay around to judge THAT fight! :)

Now, if you're talking bands only, I'm very sure ZZ Top would kick Styx's ass!
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:59am DJ Julie:

although they have lots of pretty trees in PA and in TX we have cows.
  Sun. 7/24/11 1:59am Hell's Kitten:

This song is making me sad.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:00am Joe McG:

This one should make you sadder.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:01am DJ Julie:

That's always a good game. Make the listener cry.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:02am Minnesota Jeff:

States beating up other states? Does Minnesota need to enter the ring? We afterall have loads of Ring experience. Jesse "The Governor" Ventura! .... sigh.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:02am DJKurtG:

i'm crying
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:03am Matt from Springfield:

This IS sad! Normally SF is an upbeat motley mix, and the tearjerkin' comes in long sets after, most of the time!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:03am DJ Julie:

aww now he really needs to play Warrant for you
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:04am DJ Julie:

Yes. The answer to that is always Yes.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:06am Matt from Springfield:

Not Weetabix, in Jamaica they have Weedabeatx.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:08am Susan:

Oh good grief, I've never listened to this show before (sorry Joe McG), but I'm from Springfield, VA and, unfortunately, live in TX. This seems somehow karmic...
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:09am DJ Julie:

Worst Elvis record ever
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:09am Minnesota Jeff:

Whoa
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:09am Matt from Springfield:

YES!!! Thank you Joe!!
The voice sounds unnatural, but the guitar (and drums!) sound pretty good!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:10am DJ Julie:

Texas is especially unfortunate this time of year
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:10am DJKurtG:

oh, as if there's a "correct" way to cue a record...
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:10am T-Zero:

Yes, you should have.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:11am Matt from Springfield:

@Susan: Welcome!
When did you last live in Springfield VA?
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:11am DJ Julie:

"involved" with girl groups sounds kind of sleazy
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:13am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Wasn't the guy who put together The Runaways kind of "involved" in setting up girl groups?

That said I wish I could be at that girl group show in person!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:14am Susan:

DJ Julie:Texas is hot and dry. Like hell, only a lot more humid. It's actually quite bleak. Much worse than usual (and that's saying a lot).
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:14am Matt from Springfield:

@Daniel: REKKIDDS! You GO Daniel!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:14am Minnesota Jeff:

Still plenty hot here, fellas!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:15am DJ Julie:

@Susan Yes I know..hell of a drought down there right now. I'm from San Antonio, and it's always icky humid there.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:15am Susan:

Aw, thanks Matt! I actually haven't lived in Springfield since high school -- 3 decades ago, now. **sigh**
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:16am DJ Julie:

WARRANT
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:16am Matt from Springfield:

@Susan: The heat around here is nothing to envy--I think most of the country is in the same (scorching) boat! Today was terrible, Friday far worse!

West Springfield HS? I went to a magnet high school but my friends went to WS.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:17am DJ Julie:

There's a school for magnets?
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:17am DJ Julie:

PIE! PIE!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:18am Matt from Springfield:

SPIV!!! This is the opening track from (the excellent, everyone-should-acquire) Brit comp "Glitter From The Litter Bin"!!!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:19am Matt from Springfield:

(gasp) You have the ACTUAL 45 Joe...all hail the Wizard of the Vinyl Single (kowtows on floor).
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:20am DJ Julie:

I found my family's old 45" spindle in storage. That thing is older than I am. I haven't seen what's inside yet.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:20am Susan:

Oh no, Mr. Matt, I went to Hayfield; it was an Alexandria mailing address then, but it's Springfield now. And it's been this hot and dry for a year. We've had less rain in 9 months than we usually get for the month of June. Trees, they be dyin'.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:20am Matt from Springfield:

That was one album I didn't purchase when I was in England, but I first heard one song ("Paul St. John" singing "The Flying Saucers Have Landed") playing at a record shop...I ordered the import CD online and like nearly all 20 tracks!!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:21am DJ Julie:

TX is just gonna blow away :(
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:21am Hell's Kitten:

I like music.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:22am Adam in Portland:

Hello, Joe McG, et al. Just got home from the gym. Ready to flex my head with Joe McG's mind-shaping regimen.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:22am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: It could be almost anything inside, good or bad. If there's anything worth playing, you could call it "From the Julie Vault".
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:22am Brian in UK:

Mornin' Joe & Co.
Glad to see food & booze is keeping you occupied along with the music. All the staples.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:23am Joe McG:

Hey, Adam! Hey, Susan, belatedly! Hey Brian!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:23am DJ Julie:

Yeah it's stuff that's been in there at least since I was little, probably many of it hand me downs, like my 7" of Frankenstein

  Sun. 7/24/11 2:23am Matt from Springfield:

Greetings, Adam!
How hot is Portland now? I went swimming today--not even refreshing, just bath water.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:24am DJ Julie:

Very nice, Kurt :) Perhaps we won't need to call Ken after all.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:26am DJ Julie:

@Matt that will happen if you swim in your bath tub
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:26am DJKurtG:

that said, i'm going to bed. nice to see y'all in the darkness.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:26am DJ Julie:

Goodnight Kurt!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:27am Matt from Springfield:

Nice to see you at this hour Kurt! G'night!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:27am Joe McG:

Sleep well, King Kurt!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:27am Adam in Portland:

@Matt in Springfield: I'm a bit sorry to say, but a manageable 61 degrees currently, with very little in the way of humidity. Dick Cheney should be making public apologies for your swelter.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:28am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: The amazing thing is, no matter what the temperature, it's ALWAYS bath water when it's in a bath!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:28am Adam in Portland:

Night, Kurt!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:29am DJ Julie:

Damn this is a great set. This young McGasko fellow is good.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:29am Matt from Springfield:

@Adam: I think you're doing the best of all the regions represented here tonight. I know where to vacation now!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:30am Adam in Portland:

A little rain cleansing. ;-)
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:30am Susan:

Ack! It's 81 degrees with 84% humidity in Houston at 1:30. That just way sucks (cos I have to go outside to smoke). Why did I ever leave?
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:30am Adam in Portland:

That McGasko is aces!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:31am Joe McG:

You guys!~
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:31am Adam in Portland:

C'mon over, evr'body. Still early here.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:31am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Loving this set as well! Pleasantly surprised to see the 3Ds are an old Flying Nun band, I like that label and was liking that song.
@Adam: We haven't had a good cooling rain in a while, just enough to make it muggier!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:31am DJ Julie:

88 degrees at 2:30 here
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:32am Hell's Kitten:

Is Indie Pop from Indianapolis?
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:32am Susan:

Cool music, DJ Julie. That's all we need, Now, if we could just hear some Warrant...
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:33am Matt from Springfield:

CD86!! I haven't delved into the 2 discs of that Julie, but tomorrow might be a good time to start! :)

96 degrees at 3:00 here!! 104 (40 in CELSIUS) yesterday! Humidity freakin' hot%
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:33am DJ Julie:

CHERRY PIE CHERRY PIE You're not off the hook because Kurt left!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:33am Brian in UK:

Hell's Kitten Indie Pop is divorced or separated parent!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:34am DJ Julie:

96 at 3am? WOW
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:35am Adam in Portland:

The reissue of this McCartney album is somethin' else! ;-)
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:35am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Oh...I thought we were talking about peak temps from this afternoon ;)

Bonus track? Man, this shoulda been a B-side at the time! Pretty forward-thinking New Wave track. Remember, Paul was the first Beatle to do a sound collage, in 1967!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:36am DJ Julie:

it was 101 yesterday. it was like being back in TX
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:36am Joe McG:

McCartney is bananas!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:36am DJ Julie:

Temporary Secretary was always my favorite off that record
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:38am Matt from Springfield:

"Carnival of Light", made for "The Million Volt Light and Sound Rave" in '67. 80F in Springfield at this moment, humidity also 80%...

All this talk of McCartney II on several shows here, I just may have to take a listen to that!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:38am DJ Julie:

Oh too funny I opened up my own winamp playlist and I was like why's joe playing all this upside down bat music
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:38am Brian in UK:

DJ Julie Terre T played that track YESTERDAY.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:39am Susan:

Oh my, Mr. Matt, that's a.m. temp. Let's not go into peak highs.
Speaking of which, this album is about as ridiculous as it gets. Silly ole Paul. I just heard "Temporary Secretary," on FMU, what, yesterday?
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:39am DJ Julie:

@Brian Yeah I heard it. I still remember every word.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:40am DJ Julie:

temporary...secretaire..
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:40am Joe McG:

Sure, mudman, once in awhile....
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:41am Brian in UK:

As opposed to Gregory Isaacs 'Personal Secretary'.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:41am DJ Julie:

Next time you play shoegaze please put a webcam on so we can gaze at your actual shoes
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:44am DJ Julie:

Papa's got a brand new pie?
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:45am Brian in UK:

DJ Julie, that's another McCartney album.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:46am DJ Julie:

When I hear his name I always think of what Ray Davies called him, and I probably shouldn't repeat that here
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:47am DJ Julie:

NOOOO WARRANT WARRANT!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:48am Susan:

How about Humble Pie's "Black Coffee"? It's sorta on point?
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:50am Brian in UK:

Joe, just seen the second record you played. Have not heard that in the longest time. Love how you dig these treasures up.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:50am Matt from Springfield:

The Penguins!! Hey, Antarctica would be a good vaycay spot right now...

The Spaniels was the other week, are you including a token doo wop song in SN now?
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:52am DJ Julie:

Isn't there a hotel made entirely of ice? I would like to go there now.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:54am DJ Julie:

I have touched penguins. That is my entire list of astounding lifetime accomplishments.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:55am Brian in UK:

  Sun. 7/24/11 2:55am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening, everybody!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:56am DJ Julie:

Thanks for the (small) pie, Joe!
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:57am Susan:

Beautiful, thanks for a lovely evening. Can't believe I stayed up until 2 when my 4 year old is going to wake me up at 6. DJ JMcG, I had a blast. Thanks for the sounds.
  Sun. 7/24/11 2:57am Matt from Springfield:

Surface Noise with Joe McGasko...your home for Warrant! ;)

Thanks for a great show Joe!
  Thu. 9/8/11 11:15pm Tom Walls:

"Sarayushka" is a Russian word for shed or shack, referring to the brothel of the song. "Granje" means farm, where the name of the town was taken from.
