Listener comments!

  Thu. 2/2/12 3:13pm Feldge:

Television avant la lettre.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:14pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I never knew Them was so psych-ey. I always figured they'd be more pop.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:15pm Mike East:

I've been looking for Them in record stores for years and have never successfully found any. That track makes me want to startup the search again.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:18pm BSI:

Was that this Them or that Them?
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:18pm JT:

@BSI: when? now and a them.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:22pm BSI:

WHOA. Fabio. You've hit my favorite track on my fave LP of all time by anybody. Bless you. You *should* do that.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:23pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

pleasure center activated, BSI?
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:24pm Steve-O:

Hey Fabio. Haven't listened to your show in a long while, but I am loving Spice Melange Spectrum right now. =)
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:24pm BSI:

No work getting done for the next 12 mins or so. The inner hippy is flailing like a goddamned hedgehog on fire.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:25pm bruceleh:

For some reason I thought this was Wednesday and I'd be listening to Irwin. See Fabio's play list was not a disappointment.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:26pm let x = wednesday:

  Thu. 2/2/12 3:28pm Mike East:

We're over the hump, bruceleh. Its all downhill from here.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:31pm bruceleh:

I just spent 4 hours on a production software turnover and its rollback, on a Linux box in Hong Kong.
Need to decompress.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:32pm Clay-Doh™:

Fab ... sounding good.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:32pm seang:

  Thu. 2/2/12 3:36pm Mark in VT:

Hawkwind. The title makes me think of Jas Duke the Australian poet. His sound poem You Can't Do That
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:37pm Looms:

Howkind may be too subtle for Motorhead fans...
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:38pm breugelesque:

Keep the psychedelic shit goin', Fab. It's complimenting my current Dharvoset regimen.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:40pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

dharvoset, I like that
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:40pm breugelesque:

me too, man. it's just...great.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:41pm breugelesque:

legal drugs are awesome.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:43pm mick:

sorry but what`s dharvoset?
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:44pm Brass Knuckles:

*cough* *cough*
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:46pm YIANNIS:

very nice .... dylan carlson pretty intelligent
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:47pm breugelesque:

mick, it's a painkiller. a step up from vicodin. i had surgery recently.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:50pm mick:

as far as i know we don`t get that in europe (search engine came up with nothing). is it good? haha.

brass knuckles : haha....cough cough.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:53pm hubba:

Hey Fabio... did we jsut start the Zweistein, or has this been going?
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

nice, juicy, and weird.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:54pm Carmichael:

Heya Fab, hi everyone. Bye Hawkwind ...
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:54pm hubba:

I'm barely able to reach the keyboard after my big ole wet burrito... blarf
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:55pm breugelesque:

it's real nice, mick. sets on quickly and smoothly. i can still go about my usual business. thanks for the well wishes. do you want the gory story?
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:56pm yul:

isnt hawkwind a clay pigeon type band ?
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:57pm hubba:

there's the other headphone...
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:58pm hubba:

Did artist Mike Kelley from Destroy All Monsters pass away?
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:58pm Carmichael:

Clay Pigeon with good taste, perhaps. Hawkwind is one of the ultimate trippy/stoner/spacey/proggy/mystic/nerdy bands of the 70s.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:59pm mick:

yeah, go on then.
  Thu. 2/2/12 3:59pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

hubba, yeah, I heard about it yesterday
  Thu. 2/2/12 4:00pm hubba:

I second Carmichael, and I'm a fan of Hall of the Mountain Grill
Avatar    Thu. 2/2/12 4:00pm fabio:

Mike Kelley has indeed passed away. Sadly.
  Thu. 2/2/12 4:00pm yul:

first i heard of hawkwind was onna sirius proggy staton
  Thu. 2/2/12 4:00pm BSI:

Mystic/nerdy, reporting for duty...
  Thu. 2/2/12 4:02pm hubba:

I was just tlaking about Mike Kelley and Paul McCarthy to a buddy, about how they both came from this diy weirdo music place... and have made a career from doing art for art's sake. That is too bad, sorry to hear this.
  Thu. 2/2/12 4:03pm Feldge:

Saw Hawkwind at the Starwood in Hollywood, post Quark, Strangeness, with Calvert. Awesome.
  Thu. 2/2/12 4:05pm hubba:

i fancy sucking male chickens... i also enjoy fried cock feet
  Thu. 2/2/12 4:07pm Tim Serpas:

Akira sample!
  Thu. 2/2/12 4:09pm BSI:

@Feldge: great one. I missed out on Calvert (in person) but did get to meet Simon House during a much later tour ... brilliant talent.
  Thu. 2/2/12 4:23pm Feldge:

BSI: Yep, thems wuz the dayz. Also, visiting London in '76, near Portobello Road I went to a swap meet to buy LPs. Glancing across the way, I saw the Mountain Grill. There is (probably was) a real Mountain Grill! Probably had a hall, too.
  Thu. 2/2/12 4:24pm ERD:

Thanks for the Mike Kelley tribute. . .sad news
  Thu. 2/2/12 4:44pm Cecile:

Oh, no. Not another suicide of a really talented person.
  Thu. 2/2/12 5:23pm Carmichael:

God damn, this is bizarre. Trying to conduct business with Curly of the 3 Stooges singing in the background is just crazy.
  Thu. 2/2/12 5:23pm Cecile:

Didn't mean to crash the comments board....

Fabio, could you play some Curtis Mayfield. He was from Don Cornelius's hometown of Chicago and a some time guest on the program.
  Thu. 2/2/12 5:25pm nic:

  Thu. 2/2/12 5:27pm hubba:

...like "If there's a hell below..."
  Thu. 2/2/12 5:33pm hubba:

um, i didn't mean that in bad taste, appologies...
  Thu. 2/2/12 5:35pm john:

umm.. when you say you "ran into Rosie Perez" does that mean... you KNOW Rosie Perez???
  Thu. 2/2/12 5:35pm Cecile:

Nah, that's a great song, hubba.
  Thu. 2/2/12 5:36pm Ike:

Cecile shows off her DJ ESP talent yet again....
  Thu. 2/2/12 5:36pm Cecile:

Ha, Ike.

It's a fine line between sausage white gravy and chipped beef for me; sausage gravy yea, chipped beef nay.
  Thu. 2/2/12 5:58pm Carmichael:

Like civilized men.
  Thu. 2/2/12 5:58pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Fabio, I share your hatred of mayonnaise.

You food snob Fabio! Mayo is the ONLY way to enjoy Belgian frites!
  Thu. 2/2/12 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: They sabotage my work, every time.
