Merry Christmas, Terre! Have a good show. Listening on-line here in a freezing cold Reading, England. I'm sure your wonderful selection will warm me up!!
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:12pm seang:

Vamos!!
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:23pm listener mark:

Hi Terre !
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:25pm Laura:

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Terre T. makes Saturday chores fun!
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:30pm PB:

I thought I was the biggest Ty Segall fan on the east coast but I think Terre has me beat.
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:30pm Laura:

This is one of many recent playlists (not just WFMU--all over the place) that includes Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees. Paging Mikal Cronan!
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:33pm Elias:

Wow! This song is mighty. I will seek this 45 for my jukebox.
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:41pm jahna:

Oh, yes, Terre. Keep the RAWK coming. Perfect for today.

XO
Jahna
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:44pm Mark in DC:

Silverhead? I don't think I should be listening today. Happy coming week all!
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:46pm Mike Sin:

re: Skyband
The band had a full LP released on in '75. A couple of dudes from Tin Tin formed this band. I like the whole LP. A lot of harmony/poppy moments on it.
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:51pm Mark Watkins:

Smashing stuff! All good. The Royal Headache just blew me away!
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:52pm Laura:

They wanna join the James Gang the 60s-70s band or the James Gang the19th-century outlaw family?
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:56pm Jaja:

GI LOVE WFMU! Greetings from Singapore.
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:56pm Stu:

First you played Skyband....Now you're playing Sky's band
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:58pm Mike Sin:

I hoping we'll hear something from the band "Sky" -- Doug Fieger's band from 1970-1971! ;)
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:58pm hugh lively:

thanks
  Sat. 12/10/11 3:59pm Laura:

Throw in Skyhooks while we're at it. No, don't.

Hi Terre
it's been some time since I've been able to
listen & I've really missed hearing your show...
it's been a extra rough year...I'll still try to make
good on the unpaid pledge...more on the upside,
watch your mail for the 2011 Merry "Rock Against
Bullshit" Christmas Vol. 6. I received 10 copies
today in the mail from Maria down in Australia.
I'll be mailing out to you this Mon. the 12th.
Great 1st hour of the show today!
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:17pm David Shortell:

The Brimstones and the Improbables celebrate the release of their split single tonight at Tritone.
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:18pm Keilidh:

I LOVE YOU TERRE!
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:20pm the glowing one:

great, then in 10 years I can live off selling my CD collection!
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:21pm ross:

haha i remember the Dancing Cigs
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:21pm Keilidh:

My family is always talking about reading the packaging on cds, looking at all the pictures and liner notes on albums... I missed all of that and now I have A.D.D. so I watch the pretty pixels.
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:25pm Keilidh:

oops! I forgot the most important part of that thought. Now I have all the albums and cds in the music library where I can hang out and do that.
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:27pm Laura:

This Human Switchboard track would make a great theme song!
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:30pm the glowing one:

is that mary timony singing?
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:32pm seang:

Thanks for the superfast accuplaylist!!
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:33pm AP Paulie B:

@Hula: Some people like to keep things private. Please cool it.
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:41pm Todd 76%:

I think you're right about a Waitresses connection w/ Human Switchboard...They were associated with the 'Numbers' band (Tin Huey/Waitresses precursor) Can't find credits online, but that sounds like Ralph Carney sax on Saturday's Girl.
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:43pm David Shortell:

Black Wine play Asbury Lanes tomorrow.
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:46pm Transit Punk:

This punk is riding the NJ Transit Train. No bottles to smash unfortunately.
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:50pm ScottC:

MP3s are stored as "little bumps" in silicon. The laser runs over these bumps and interprets the info. just say'in.
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:55pm SuePer:

Saturday afternoon triumvirate: making Xmas cookies, drinking booze and listening to Terre T.
  Sat. 12/10/11 4:57pm Lanie:

  Sat. 12/10/11 5:04pm PB:

@Lanie, rock as in The Rock, as in Newfoundland. My sister-in-law is from Newfoundland.
  Sat. 12/10/11 5:06pm listener mark:
