  Sun. 8/28/11 12:37am Chris in Midwood:

Northern Wind by Cat Stevens please. Assalamu alaikum.
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:38am Fabio:

Why is it funny that I'm here at night? Makes perfect sense to me... Are there leaks in the building?
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:41am jaycjay:

@bruceleh, heh, so long ago! I was a college rep for the label so carried around stacks of that first album to record stores and the like for months.
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:42am Fabio:

Play some Roxy Music, it's perfect for the rain. Hey, didn't Ferry cover "A Hard Rain's a-gonna fall"?
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:42am jaycjay:

Roxy Music is perfect to the rain, but also for anything else.
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:43am jaycjay:

Ah yeah, great Tull choice!
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:44am TJ:

YES!!!!!! Bryan Ferry covered "Hard Rain's Gonna Fall" on "These Foolish Things" (his first solo album, i believe)
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:47am Holly in NC:

Peter Gabriel - In your Eyes - rain connection via anguished John Cusack in Say Anything.

Or, I suppose, Red Rain - nah.
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:47am listener mark:

Slight "thuum" there. Are the electrics dry ?
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:48am david:

  Sun. 8/28/11 12:51am dave:

moya brennan. nice choice.
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:52am slugluv1313:

and of course Faust's "It's A Rainy Day Sunshine Girl" (even thought Rob W. played it earlier) . . . "IT'S A RAINY DAY, SUNSHINE KITTIES!!!" (long, possibly convoluted story; cat-rescue friends were *supposed* to do an adoption event today in Brooklyn)
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:52am Julie:

that was Maire Brennan also from Clannad
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:52am dave:

  Sun. 8/28/11 12:52am slugluv1313:

  Sun. 8/28/11 12:53am Julie:

yep she put out a couple albums as Maire then got sick of people mispronouncing her name
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:55am greg in portland:

sounding great, you guys! oh, and: make it rain - KLF!
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:55am david:

lol Fabio vs. Walter Brennan
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:58am Holly in NC:

Type O Negative's Summer Breeze cover would be quite appropriate!
  Sun. 8/28/11 12:58am Fabio:

She Brings the Rain by Can is one of my favorites. And Scott Walker does "It's Raining Today" which is another good one. It's hitting Brooklyn hard now. We have a leak in the bathroom ceiling now.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:00am TJ:

Not saying this is a cop out, but ...
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:01am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

.. yep getting the wind swept bands here now in Gravesend Bklyn... in an old house here my backyard is just between Coney Island and 86st on the N Train but I think I am high up enough.. TG I found the Sump pump for the basement at least !!

  Sun. 8/28/11 1:02am david:

  Sun. 8/28/11 1:03am Taylor:

This won't even fill a minute of airtime, but: "Theme from Flood" by They Might Be Giants.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:03am Stevel:

Holly: Glad to hear you're weathering it well. Keep it up.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:04am slugluv1313:

okay if you are going to play The Doors, then you *must* segue into "It's Raining Men" by the Weather Girls :)
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:04am fleep:

But is your brain squirming like a toad?
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:04am Taylor:

Spinal Tap: "Break Like the Wind"
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:05am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

"Here come the Flood" .. from Peter Gabriel's 1st one....
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:05am david:

John Densmore...
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:05am jaycjay:

My toad is squirming like a brain. It's kind of disgusting.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:06am Taylor:

And of course you could play the complete "Consequences" album by Godley + Creme.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:06am moss:

aren't toads usually pretty still?
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:06am bruceleh:

@jaycjay
For me, Zoom is a desert island must have.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:06am Matt from Springfield:

Oh my God---I was checking in to see to y'all were all right and how Joe was doing--but Mr. Pigeon is a great fill-in! And Jules!! Hope you don't float away!!
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:07am Holly in NC:

@Stevel -
We're over & done! Forecast = sunny & 94F in the am.
However, my family & friends in Connecticut & Massachusetts are next in the direct line of fire.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:07am listener mark:

Would you, could you, play Grateful Dead? "Box of Rain" or "Looks Like Rain" ?
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:07am greg in portland:

the storm - high places
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:09am Matt from Springfield:

I can really hear that bucket! It's still noisy raining in VA, but no winds or anything severe.

Btw, I heard the "Hole In The Bucket" folk song as a child; evidently that's a Pennsylvania Dutch traditional song (with the "Dear Liza" line as the girl's name).
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:09am jaycjay:

Wow... now that we're really getting to "back in the day" greatness. Godley & Creme Consequences! Haven't even thought of that album in years, but it played a big part in my musical growth.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:09am Pundit:

Fabio +8
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:10am tranewreck:

  Sun. 8/28/11 1:12am J J:

watching the Gong Show

  Sun. 8/28/11 1:13am Matt from Springfield:

There's no playlist of songs up--print out what you've played, even a few days later! Since Clay's played "Houses of the Holy", have you played "The Rain Song" tonight? That was a fav zone out song from my high school days.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:13am Holly in NC:

Er....the Cult - Rain? Okay, okay, I'll banish myself & save y'all the trouble ;-)

Perhaps a hopeful note - Roy Redmond's version of "Good Day Sunshine?
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:14am Joe D:

Moe: I'm taking your favorite song out of the jukebox

Homer: "It's Raining Men"?!

Moe: Not no more it ain't
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:14am Matt from Springfield:

@Clay: Or, considering the show's title, "Ridin' The Storm Out" by REO Speedwagon? I don't really like REO, but that's one of their songs I do like.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:14am Dan McFakename:

Hey guys, thanks for keeping ua company in Morris County tonite. I'd request the Coathangers' "Hurricane" from their newest LP but there are several swear words in it.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:15am Matt from Springfield:

YES!! to Joe D!!
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:15am Joe D:

MORRIS COUNTY WHATUP
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:16am Terre T:

Phenomenal perfect programming Julie & Clay! You guys are total super-troopers!
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:18am jaycjay:

@Matt: "Riding The Storm Out" was the first track of the show.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:19am Doctor B.:

Another rain song for ya:

"I Wish It Would Rain" by Wreckless Eric.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:20am bruceleh:

Rainy Days and Mondays!

  Sun. 8/28/11 1:20am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks JCJ!
And that was quite an older, different Sarah Brightman--not surprised that was the 80s.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:21am tranewreck:

.....Eurhythmics "Here Comes The Rain Again"
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:22am Meghan:

  Sun. 8/28/11 1:24am Matt from Springfield:

Put on life jackets! If the 4th floor is underwater you ( and the rest of Jersey City/NYC ) is going to flood for sure!
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:24am Julie:

The Cowsils The Rain, The Park, & Other Things
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:26am slugluv1313:

omg "Rain Song" TOTAL zone out song for so many of us -- i used to play that song when it was raining outside while burning "Rain" incense (high school, mid-1970s)
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:26am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie Seriously??? I can only imagine how terrible that is--the Times Square webcam doesn't show flooding, but particular areas are going to see damage.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:26am jaycjay:

NOAA says no actual probability of hurricane force winds in NYC. Storm surge is really the only worry, winds aren't gonna be that much beyond what we get a few times a year.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:27am fleep:

Come Rain or Come Shine - Sinatra
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:27am jaycjay:

@Fabio: YES! I LOVE that song!

Btw, I likewise LOVED you guys on Julie's show! I go back to your talking segments and listen to them several times the last couple weeks!

That's what I thought, JCJ, as I saw the direction of the hurricane's approach. Raking the coast, before the eye gets close to NY, it'll be severely attenuated. Maybe even less of a storm than the tropical storm we had in 1985 -- you know, when some news dept. ginned it up to a "killer rain"?
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:37am Matt from Springfield:

YES!! I saw the earlier "Cloudbusting" suggestion--this is PERFECT!!

Make sure to look up the video on YT, with Kate Bush and Donald Sutherland. Very compelling.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:38am dave:

i am TOTALLY taking credit for "cloudbursting".
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:40am Holly in NC:

Ann Peebles - or Missy Elliott !
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:40am listener mark:

Blessings upon you, Julie . Kate Bush and Nick Drake, the best.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:40am 12539:

Seconding Ann Peebles!
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:42am J J:

You go girl.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:43am M Cereal.:

are you guys gonna be posting a playlist at some point, or am I SOL because I tuned in late?

The music's been all over the place, but it's worked so well.

This is why live, terrestrial radio is fantastic and the malleability of freeform only lets you showcase the fluidity of the format and its potential.

Great work, Julie and Clay
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:44am Minnesota Jeff:

Hipping is about 4.5 hours north of Minneapolis.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:44am Minnesota Jeff:

Er uh, Hibbing rather.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:45am Matt from Springfield:

I think Taylor is calling from the future...but that means that we WILL survive!
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:45am Matt from Springfield:

@Clay: I think of "Laugh In" whenever I hear "Burbank, CA"
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:45am jaycjay:

@Robert, yeah, that was Gloria (I think) in 1985. I'd been living in the midwest for a while and just came back a few months before that... I was kind of disappointed that my return to coastal weather turned out to be so little. Though on the other hand, part of Long Island did get hit really hard as I recall.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:47am jaycjay:

Ha! Right, Matt, same here. Laugh In's "Beautiful Downtown Burbank" was probably the first time I heard that city's name and that phraseology has stuck with me ever since.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:48am Pundit:

Fabio + 9

(I'm only joking, Julie)
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:48am Minnesota Jeff:

Whenever I hear this song I think of the dream sequence in Dumb & Dumber.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:48am Matt from Springfield:

GARDEN PARTY: "Well it's / All right now / I learned my lesson well / It's that you...can't please everyone, so.../ You got to please yourself"!!

Wonderful! Thanks Fabio and Clay! Joe McG loves The Cowsills, so thanks on his behalf as well!
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:48am dave:

brooklyn, mn is the brooklyn of hibbing.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:49am Danne D:

Hope alll of you guys are hanging in there and doing okay! (I'm actually away in NC this weekend and thus missed all the hurricane excitement) side note, I'm doing this from my phone so I won't be able to see replies. Anyway, have fun and stay safe Clay and Julie! Please pass those wishes along to Keili and DJ Mama as well! Please be careful out there!!
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:49am david:

Don't forget Julie, MFS... :)

Apparently the twin sons of Ricky Nelson were Gunnar and Matthew Nelson. It was Matthew seeing model Bobbie Brown, who filmed the Cherry Pie video, and met Jani Lane in the process...
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:50am Matt from Springfield:

@david: Ha ha, yes, I'm sure Julie would love The Cowsills as well. Who wouldn't? ;D
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:51am Matt from Springfield:

Is this...the most American of bands, America? :)
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:52am clay:

yes matt from the hat trick lp RIP Dan Peek
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:52am Minnesota Jeff:

America is from England, right?
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:52am Holly in NC:

yep
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:53am Flooney:

She dated Montel Williams as well. I heard it on Narduwar's show, so it has to be true.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:53am jaycjay:

OK, I'll toss one in: Can - She Brings The Rain.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:54am Matt from Springfield:

Bless you Clay, I love them a lot!
I know this intro...it's the Grand Funk you played two weeks ago!
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:55am Holly in NC:

Speaking of captains, would Slint be too college radio?
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:56am Minnesota Jeff:

This is a great song!
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:56am clay:

2 weeks ago .... sigh I play the same stuff over and over I know
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:56am 12539:

@jaycjay, Fabio recommended She Brings The Rain a while back but Clay and Julie say they can't find it.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:57am dave:

it is truly raining puppies in morristown.
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:57am Matt from Springfield:

@MN Jeff: America's original members (Dewey Gerry and Dan) were Air Force brats living in England, and they named the band after their home country.

(Dewey and Gerry autographed my LP of America's first album, and said that they took the picture in a British pub that had American Indian wall panels, for the atmosphere!)
  Sun. 8/28/11 1:59am daupo:

The wind in Queens is surely picking up... good thing we have the Clay and Julie life-line.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:00am Minnesota Jeff:

Matt: Oh, interesting. Whats the go to America album?
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:01am Flooney:

...and two by two, my human zoo, they'll be running for to come, running for to come out of the raiiiiiin!
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:01am jaycjay:

Ah, OK thanks 12539. I'm happy at least that the estimable Fabio made the same request that I did.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:02am JOhn Guggle:

"I'm getting closer to my home...come on everyone!...I'm getting closer to my home....Hurricane, come on!"

Best memory of the hurricane, thanks clay
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:03am Robert:

Interesting, JCJ, in that I too had returned from the Midwest, but 5 years before.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:03am Matt from Springfield:

@Jeff: Besides any Greatest Hits comps, I would rec for their original albums "America" their first (1971), "Homecoming" (1972), or "Hearts" (1976).
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:03am fleep:

excuse me, I have a doctor's prescription for this, this is medicine. the fact that it's called Bubba Kush should not matter

@fleep: Amen!! Bubbakushious!
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:05am Matt from Springfield:

No long-term power outages in Springfield yet...just experienced the 5th brief "blip" of the evening. Dominion is actually doing great tonight in reconnecting their power connections.

Ike was way scary when it hit Houston, and I lived 60 miles from the shore. It sounded like a freight train coming through my house. 2 weeks without power...Good luck to you guys!
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:08am Mary Wing:

Just use the Sunday log, Julie, put Thursdays log back in the right place.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:08am Matt from Springfield:

Wendy the Cheese Lady!
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:08am Julie:

ok but it's already got crap on it
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:09am Vero:

Clay and Julie, you are making our night...my boyfriend and I are huddled in Queens, playing a board game by candlelight and listening to your show. Right now we feel you are two of our best friends.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:09am Matt from Springfield:

Play the Ruthann Friedman version of "Windy"! She's the one who wrote it, and it's better than the Association!
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:09am Lizardner Dave:

Just tuned in over the FM signal here in Zone B, Staten Island. Still have power, fingers crossed.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:09am Mary Wing:

I'll fix it on Wednesday, no worries.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:09am Bas, NL:

Wendy! Hang in there!
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:10am Ike:

Yeah watching TV now is a HUGE mistake -- they're really overhyping the HELL out of this. Winds are only 18 mph in Central Park and 28 in Atlantic City.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:10am Flooney:

Favorite album by The Nice? Five Bridges.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:10am Vero:

The Bob Dylan song you played earlier put me in the mood for "The Times They Are A-Changing"; would you be so kind as to play it? It is not rain related but would fill me with gratitude.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:11am Matt from Springfield:

The National Hurricane Center shows Irene right below Monmouth Co, so you're probably getting the brunt of it soon.

@Clay: Don't you have one of those apnea breathing masks? Quite a few of my family uses those, and it helps you sleep better A LOT.

@Vero: "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall"? That's a great Dylan one. Written as he thought of the world ending during the Cuban missile crisis.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:14am Matt from Springfield:

Dusty-Kiss™!!
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:14am Robert:

BTW, I'm in the Bronx.

I think this show is going to be way more interesting than Ian Punnet tonight, which I've got on via WTAM, Cleveland; AM DX is pretty good tonight.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:15am Lizardner Dave:

7671without power on SI so far, I'm not one of them yet, fingers crossed....
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:18am Ike:

Bill W. says "highest winds for NYC now forecast around 50 mph." Not a big deal, then.

@Vero, candlelight in Queens? Friend of mine just said she lost power in Rosedale... eh, I don't want that to happen. I like electricity!
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:20am Matt from Springfield:

No, Bourbon is pretty much any Kentucky whiskey (Jack is Tennessee--that is NOT Bourbon).

Wild Turkey is good, it's fairly strong though.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:21am listener mark:

dead air
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:21am jaycjay:

heh. Wild Turkey "the good stuff". Heh. That's all I can say. Heh.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:21am listener mark:

DEAD AIR !!!!
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:21am Susan:

Be strong, Julie!
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:22am Matt from Springfield:

A MIGHTY WIND!!!

(Listen to The Seekers "Come The Day"--it seems to be an inspiration for "A Mighty WInd" and Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara's "When I'm Next To You")
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:22am jaycjay:

Well, bourbon did get its name from the county, (or area before it even was a county, I think) but now it doesn't all come from there like the way wines have to come from a particular region in order to use the name.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:22am Mary Wing:

I can hear them, Mark, can't you?
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:23am tomB:

This Mighty Wind song reminds me to tell you that it was the Serendipity Singers who performed "Don't Let the Rain Come Down"
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:23am greg in portland:

the captions on my tv just said the Portland Timbers/DC United match was postponed due to Hurricane Eye Reap.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:24am listener mark:

@ Mary Wing We are back
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:24am Matt from Springfield:

@tomB: Once I heard of The Serendipity Singers, I thought that they MUST be "The New Main Street Singers" from A Mighty Wind!
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:26am tomB:

oops. David noted the Serdips already, I'm late
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:26am Mary Wing:

Cranes, nice. Is this this at the station?
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:26am Julie:

@mary I brought it with me
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:27am RachaelFox:

Hooray for the Cranes!
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:28am jaycjay:

Yeah, can count on Julie to have something cool with her.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:29am jaycjay:

Missing the point about the soccer game being cancelled. The point was "hurricane Eye Reap" in the closed captions.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:29am listener mark:

In the Catskills, there isn't much else to do but drink.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:30am Matt from Springfield:

@Mark: Ah, you learned the lesson from Thursday's show well! :)
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:31am clay:

Not exactly in line with the "theme" but .....
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:31am Robert:

This was good at a NY Sharks (women's) football game over the p.a.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:31am greg in portland:

clay found his own point, jaycjay. and that's okay too.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:32am fleep:

Goodnight Eye Reap, Goodnight Eye Reap, ICU in my dreams
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:33am clay:

Oh man ... played this 2-weeks ago, too.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:34am Matt from Springfield:

Oh come on Clay, did you literally leave this LP in the studio two weeks ago and forget to put it back?!

That said, thank you, I love this Queen song :D
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:34am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

ooooo early early Queen go Clay ... \:D/\:D/\:D/

heh, fair enough Greg. That's the kind of thing that makes him who he is, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:34am Flooney:

This is not the Queen song I requested indirectly.
  Sun. 8/28/11 2:35am greg in portland:

@MN Jeff: Oh, you'd better not ask about "the bathroom on the right"!!!
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:04am Vero:

Stay strong Clay and Julie, you are halfway through your tour of duy
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:05am jaycjay:

So strongly agree, Vero. The night of riding out the approaching hurricane couldn't be better than with this group.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:06am unionjeff:

Play "Looks Like Rain" by the Grateful Dead. I Love It. Terrible song though!
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:09am Minnesota Jeff:

What about "Box of Rain" by the Grateful Dead off of "American Beauty"?
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:10am alberto:

clay, i'm in love with you. just thought you should know that. :)
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:10am Robert:

I just stepped out to see the clouds and rain moving from east to west, so that some hours from now I can see them being driven back to the east. I don't know why, but something about seeing stuff like that (cyclonic flow) actually demonstrated in front of me -- or even reading of it in literature as a side note in a description of something else -- chokes me up. I've been trying to figure out for the past decade or so why certain things in drama, literature, or fact make me cry. It's not a sad cry, either.

Clay, have you listened to Nat Roe's "Adult Contemporary Reverse Chartsweep" DJ premium? It has the hook of this song, and only the hooks of almost all #1 AC hits in the past 50 years! It's a fun listen--very ADD like Nat's shows, but I love it, you probably would too!
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:15am Mary Wing:

I'd like to figure out why I teared up while watching the video for "Love Is A Battlefield" earlier today. I mean, really.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:15am Robert:

Even remembering reading about a FICTIONAL account of a MISCONCEPTION of a scientific principle gets to me! I'm just recalling from Crichton's "The Great Train Robbery" how a character got screwed up about Bernoulli's Principle (from "the Italian, Baroni").
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:16am Robert:

Mary, does thinking about one cry-making thing lead you to thoughts of other cry-making things? It does me.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:17am Matt from Springfield:

Nick Drake demo? Me like! I have several of those.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:18am Mary Wing:

Oh lordy, yes, Robert. Don't get me started!
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:19am Robert:

I told my friend Allen L. Rickman how I teared up at the conclusion of "I Was A Teenage Zombie" (a movie he was in). He said, "That's sick."
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:21am Matt from Springfield:

"Early Morning Rain"--I originally heard the version by Ian & Sylvia, and found this was written by Mr. Gordon Lightfoot in 1965.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:21am john anderson:

"there's a little girl, in our neighborhood.
her name is charlotte johnson, and she's really lookin' good.
i had to go and see her, so i called her on the phone.
i walked over to her house, and this was goin' on.
her brother was on the sofa, eatin' chocolate pie.
momma was in the kitchen, cuttin' chicken up to fry.
daddy was in the backyard, rollin' up a garden hose.
i was on the porch with charlotte, feelin' love down to my toes...and we were swingin"
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:21am Mary Wing:

Not having seen that movie, I can't say if that's sick or not. But it's probably not the standard response.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:23am Robert:

I do want to get another chance, though, to step onto a football field like Mitchel Field in Nassau Co. ringed with tall light towers in the middle of a thunderstorm -- that was the situation once -- even though I'd get drenched, just to show there was no danger of lighting strike there. The light towers atl at the same height would not only protect the middle from lightning strike, but assure that the surface within was all at the same electric potential, so there'd be no danger from sideways ground currents either.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:23am Vero:

I love Gordon lightfoot, guiltily...
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:24am Vero:

Going to see him in Ithaca later in Sept...
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:24am Robert:

Oh, I know it's not the standard response, Mary. I also laugh at places in movies & stage shows where nobody else does. Also TV shows I'm sure, but that's because of inside jokes.

Pre-Cambrian refers to 4.6 billion years ago, when the Earth was first forming. Cambria means Cambridge in Latin, but the Cambrian/Pre-Cambrian period is geologic time, SO long ago.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:27am Vero:

Very obvious, but has "Rock Me Like a Hurricane" been played yet? I apologize in advance to people who hate hair metal.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:28am Robert:

BTW, TV is chock full of jokes that are so subtle they might as well be inside jokes.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:30am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Joe D! Just the "Human Googler"! :)

Don't let on to my computer hard drives and synthetic speech, Julie! :)
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:30am Robert:

The people who make them never acknowledge these jokes that are based on certain knowledge. I figure that for every one I've caught, there must be a hundred I don't.

Refugee - Patrick Moraz
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:32am Mary Wing:

You mean like pop culture references? Or puns?
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:33am Robert:

The funny thing is that, had someone told me of similar perceptions from TV shows years back, I might've concluded those were what psychiatrists call 'ideas of reference" -- but THOSE tend to be things like the Martians are sending the listener secret messages, not ha-ha stuff.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:33am Matt from Springfield:

This is Refugee? It sounds pretty good. It reminds me of Dutch rock Classical music group Ekseption in the 70s.

I just learned something from Joe. When someone puts you on the spot with a question like "as associate producer what exactly to you do?", just pretend it never happened and say nothing. Eventually the silence will move on.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:34am Robert:

Mary, I mean like all sorts of allusions, some of which may involve word play -- loads of ways the writers have fun. They're not usually to pop culture, though -- or if they are, those are the ones I miss.

What tune dis?
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:35am Robert:

For instance, it shows how influential the late Robert Shea & Robert Anton Wilson were on Hollywood -- without overt acknowledgment or money from it, though!
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:36am fleep:

LIke naming characters after people in your family and friends so they hear their names on TV.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:36am Mary Wing:

I guess I'm thinking of Bugs Bunny cartoons, which were far more adult in content than typical Saturday-morning cartoons.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:37am Robert:

TV commercials especially were crammed with 23s & 17s.

No fleep, I don't mean ACTUAL inside jokes, although I've caught some of those too. It helped that a friend of mine became a TV writer, Damon Lindelof.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:37am Julie:

it doesnt end at 6..Keili will be in, and then she's joining us at 9 for more nonsense
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:39am Robert:

There was a Looney Tune called "3 Little Bops" that made a striking allusion to the Bavarian Illuminati. And that was before Shea & Wilson!
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:39am Mary Wing:

I hope Julie and Clay will take a nap from 6-9 am!
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:41am Robert:

It helped to be introduced gradually to this sort of thing. I mentioned the 23s & 17s. Then Gough & Millar came out with the "Shanghai" movies that were very heavy handed with their allusions. That led me to see much subtler allusions in their "Smallville" TV series.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:42am daupo:

"Had breakfast in the eye of a hurricane " is a Tom Waits lyric, and he is stormy.

And there's a line from the Popeye soundtrack, by Harry Nillson, the Swee'Pea song, also with "eye of a hurricane" in it.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:42am fleep:

I know the wind! I know!
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:42am alberto:

a song that comes to mind is "disaster" by cher u.k.
a kansas city band from the 90's. they were on the red decibel label (a subsidiary of columbia)
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:43am Robert:

Gough & Millar basically used their Superboy stories to retell OTHER, UNRELATED stories -- such as of the Kennedys, Alger Hiss, and Prometheus.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:44am Mary Wing:

So, they're basically recycling stories, rather than creating new content?
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:44am fleep:

Is that being allusional or just stealing story lines
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:44am Robert:

...plus somewhat related stories, such as that of Frederic Wertham.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:45am tomB:

Great! "Who Knows the Wind?" is heavily overlooked.

Easier to remember--"The Wind" 1954 Nolan Strong &thDiablos. You could also check out the Jesters 1960, Mark Sultan, aka "BBQ," of King Khan & BBQ Show, recorded a version of it for Norton's "Daddy Rockin Strong: A Tribute to Nolan Strong & The Diablos." But my personal fave is Laura Nyro &Labelle on "Gonna Take a Miracle."
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:45am Julie:

it's freezing in the green room.>I couldn't sleep there and I fear the loft
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:45am Robert:

No, they're very cleverly telling 2 or more stories at once, one of which is an old one and the other original.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:46am Robert:

So when Damon got his TV series "Lost", I saw loads of allusions to literature we knew in common.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:47am Robert:

I should say that first he sat down with me and had me tell him why I liked "Smallville" so much.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:47am Mary Wing:

Bring the couch cushions into studio C, Julie. That's where I sleep. Just remember to turn off the ceiling speaker by the library listening station.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:49am Brick Van Dee:

"It's allright for what it is" - What a brilliantly neutral answer, Julie!
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:50am Robert:

Anyway, my assumption -- maybe poorly founded -- is that if I saw those things on the TV shows I paid att'n to, there must be even more in all the TV shows I don't pay att'n to. And I don't even watch TV any more! (Haven't had it on in months.)
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:50am tomB:

Clay that was Jerry Jeff Walker!
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:51am vero:

"ONLY LIVING BOY IN NY" I get the news I need from the weather report!
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:52am Julie:

we played scott walker too
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:55am Buzzard:

Time for "A Plague Of Lighthouse Keepers" yet?
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:56am Mary Wing:

It is?
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:56am Brick Van Dee:

Buzzard - You are a genius, what a brilliant track that is...
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:56am Robert:

Reading the comment thread on mike -- the last refuge of the scoundrel!
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:57am tomB:

Yes we're only up to the letter I for Irene, but play in "Wind Cries Mary" as a prophecy.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:57am tomB:

Robin
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:58am alberto:

robin trower!!!!!!!!
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:58am jaycjay:

Niko wins.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:59am Joe D:

Julie the loft is cool! I changed the blankets there a few... weeks ago.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:59am alberto:

sounds kinda like hendrix's machine gun...which came first?
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:59am jaycjay:

OK, Robin Trower tells me it's time to call it a night. Take care all, be back soon.
  Sun. 8/28/11 3:59am Mary Wing:

I want to hear Purple Rain, actually. But pretend I didn't say that.
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:00am alberto:

sounds kinda like hendrix's machine gun...which came first?
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:00am jaycjay:

OK, Robin Trower tells me it's time to call it a night. Take care all, be back soon.
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:00am Julie:

i was thinking it really sounded like hendrix
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:00am asb:

Don't give up on talking! I was so sad that Jerry Lewis won't be on the telethon this year, but this is really filling that telethon-shaped hole in my heart. It is special and punchy and weird.

Also, how about some Kate Bush?
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:01am clay:

Hendrix
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:01am Robert:

I meant "on-mike" above. Nothing about a Michael. Mr. Pigeon was doing it, reading my post. Ken resorted to it at the UCB theater without Andy.
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:02am Julie:

I played Kate
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:03am god:

...and on the eighth day, i created hendrix
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:03am Buzzard:

ok...ok... Mahogany Rush, "It's Begun To Rain"
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:03am Mary Wing:

:)
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:03am Greg from VA:

Nico would be good to hear as the wind is subsiding here in Virginia, the kind of sound that swirls at 4 am, all heading to NYC to find a new home.
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:04am alberto:

  Sun. 8/28/11 4:08am J J:

YES.
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:10am Greg from VA:

I can see Clay and Julie doing a telethon, raising money for gentle yet scarred souls who stay up all night during hurricanes listening to FMU, finding a cure, which is not too hard, for FMU is the cure, which leads to maybe playing the Cure, but only long after Nico, but time is slipping, time is passing, maybe it's too late, or maybe just too early?
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:13am Mary Wing:

BRB, the wind is calling me.
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:13am Julie:

wow Greg you make my brain hurt
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:14am Julie:

@Mary :D
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:15am alberto:

everyone knows it's windy? -the association
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:16am Joe D:

dammit he's right! We should all think about the money to raise by doing stuff for the thing! !!!!!!!!!!!!
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:17am Joe D:

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:18am alberto:

Hello from France to WFMU's riders on the storm! So good to listen to Nico in the morning.
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:26am alberto:

"and when the rain beats upon my windowpane, i think of summer nights again, and dream of you"
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:27am Greg from VA:

What if rain was not wet, but velvet, then hurricanes would not be so bad, getting wrapped around by it as walking down the street, having it flooding the streets and coming through the roof filling buckets, ya, that would be nice ... and thanks for the Nico Julie ... it was very velvet.
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:31am Buzzard:

I need to hear Clay's band do "Kentucky Rain"
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:32am Looms:

How about "Stormy Weather" by Pixies?
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:36am ?:

Mean Mistreater - Grand Funk Railroad

Playing this will scare Irene away!
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:37am daupo:

Pixies' Stormy Weather is an excellent call. I am surprised it took so long.

  Sun. 8/28/11 4:43am cosmo:

  Sun. 8/28/11 4:44am mike noble in dc:

fabio is tall?
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:45am Julie:

isn't he? he looks tall to me..or maybe he is just thin
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:46am mike noble in dc:

i imagine him being no taller than 6'... but definitely thin!
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:47am asb:

Just emailed Fabio through the WFMU contact form to let him know that Clay thinks he dreams about Sprockets.
  Sun. 8/28/11 4:48am asb:

now is the time on Sprockets when we safety dance

  Sun. 8/28/11 5:04am clay:

Hey Moose. I still remember the places where my old records skipped when I hear oldies on the radio.

Hello peoples!
  Sun. 8/28/11 5:19am Mickey Mephistopheles:

I am ironically grateful for the weather in western NY State. No hurricane here, just massive lake effect snow in the winter.
  Sun. 8/28/11 5:20am clay:

Hi Vicki! Looking forward to your horror thing at Record Fair. Go Arsenal!
  Sun. 8/28/11 5:21am Mickey Mephistopheles:
