  Thu. 3/1/12 3:18pm dinatekno:

guy maddin!!!
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:18pm nyoukis:

so.... who's job is it gonna be to scrape fabio off the floor at 7pm?
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:18pm Nathan:

You two are hilarious!
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:18pm Looms:

  Thu. 3/1/12 3:18pm glenn:

there's lots of french people in the 'peg.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:19pm Matt from Springfield:

I want a soup that's strone with mines! *Explosive* flavor!
YAY 4-hour Fabio & Clay Mega-pledge-aganza!!
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:20pm bill:

I just got here. What about Guy Maddin? I love Guy Maddin!
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:20pm Scuttle:

  Thu. 3/1/12 3:20pm glenn:

we need julie to bring some sanity to these proceedings.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:21pm MD:

OH My GAWD!!!!! GO CLAY!!!!!!!!!!!
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:21pm Ike:

Fabio's premium CDs are always excellent. And worthy of love! That may be the only DJ premium I *always* get, every single year; I pledged pre-marathon to get it again this year. My other premium choices vary from year to year.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:22pm Matt from Springfield:

  Thu. 3/1/12 3:24pm Nathan:

What colour is swarthy?
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:25pm Frank:

Hahaha This is so funny! and his voice sounds like Todd Barry
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:25pm glenn:

on the pantone chart it's somewhere between tarzan and terry and the pirates.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

If Julie was here, that would segue into Abba's "Ring Ring"!

@Nathan: Swarthy indicates a very brown skin -- a "dark" skin (but not black). I've heard "tawny" used to describe a very brown tone as well.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:26pm KP:

Oh, Fabio.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:26pm Should Be Paying Closer Attention:

Dave the Spazz's show is starting *very* early this week!
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:27pm Mpls. Thom:

I love Fabios show, especially the last fifteen when Clay comes in. And I love Clays show, getting Fab with Clay for four hours is like the best radio ever.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:27pm KP:

Fabio playing the Monkees. You have me weeping on the railroad.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:28pm Mpls. Thom:

donated to Fab last week, will donate to Clay this week.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:28pm KP:

Mary, I love you.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:28pm Matt from Springfield:

I believe Irwin's played this "Bedazzled" remix as well.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:29pm KP:

Sandra, I love you.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:29pm Nathan:

Whoa.. I always thought swarthy meant something else... but I see you're right.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

People can donate their old cars to WFMU, right? Mention that over the air. More income for the station that way.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:32pm jk:

why is there not a webcam on you guys?
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:32pm Should Be Paying Closer Attention:

Video slugest (tm) -- MONEEEEEEYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:38pm BSI:

  Thu. 3/1/12 3:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Fabio hasn't been adopted yet! Mouse Pledge of $365 will do it!

"Adopting Fabio for the next 12 months is a sure-fire way to guarantee his respect, because he sure isn't gonna do it after he saw that Spandau Ballet CD on your shelf."
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:42pm Matt from Springfield:

@Clay: What you need to do is a "Five Boroughs Audio Tour" of NYC--interview people from all five boroughs.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:42pm bill:

  Thu. 3/1/12 3:43pm Brass Knuckles:

I would get a Fabio hip hop DJ Premium.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:45pm BSI:

I'm spent, mates, but I'll be getting Fabio's premium via mouse pledge earlier this week. Looking forward to that...! Feed the Fabio!
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:45pm Matt from Springfield:

Incidentally, thank you BSI for adopting Scott Williams!
I'll thank any other adopters I see on this board!
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:45pm George of Troy:

I don't know what's funnier, Clay's surreal non sequiturs or Fabio's reaction to them.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:46pm KP:

Baby face belock.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:46pm ?:

"sont des mots qui vent tres bien ensemble"
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:46pm glenn:

who did you adopt, matt?
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:46pm Chop Scott:

Cheers for Fabio & Clay!
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:47pm Ike:

Couldn't quite hear Belock's response to Clay -- bet it was funny though!

And as a former Marylander, I gotta say, there is only ONE spring in Silver Spring. Not Silver Springs!
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:48pm glenn:

clay and fabio together is sorta what skip spence and captain kangaroo would be like together.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:49pm dan b.:

can somebody tell me how to spell the name of the group that isn't Filthy Moose?
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: Oh, I didn't adopt this year--I was under the impression that adoptions were an extra pledge, but as long as you pay your pledge in full, you get the swag AND something you stake a claim for. I've been pledging over several shows and a lump sum afterwards, but next year I think I'll send in my payment early, and adopt something.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:50pm bob:

you can be anyone you want this time around
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha, now that I looked up Skip Spence, I totally see him as "Fabio" in a Skip-Capt. Kangaroo pairing!
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:51pm BSI:

Thanks Matt. I promise to return him in the same condition I found him in. Or at least relatively un-damaged.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:51pm 12539:

@Dan B: La fille qui mousse
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:51pm paul m:

These are words that go together well.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:51pm paul m:

These are words that go together well.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:51pm paul m:

These are words that go together well.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:53pm Fabio's Dating Game:

Bachelorette number 2, would you be turned on more by a chance meeting on a dissection table or a chance dissection on a meeting table?
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:53pm dan b.:

@12539, thanks!
@paul m, they sure do.
  Thu. 3/1/12 3:59pm other david:

  Thu. 3/1/12 4:01pm Julie:

They don't grout, they grouse
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:01pm KP:

  Thu. 3/1/12 4:05pm KP:

  Thu. 3/1/12 4:05pm KP:

Rock on Pidge!!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:06pm seang:

and the Screaming Tribesmen
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:06pm Caryn:

The 80s was a very Australia-heavy musical decade.

@Matt: my adoption is pending, so you can thank me when it clears
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:07pm ?:

dude, i could use me a 'stroll on the balcony' a la Clay this afternoon
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:08pm glenn:

weddings parties anything, the saints(maybe more 70s), radio birdman.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:09pm Cecile:

  Thu. 3/1/12 4:09pm Julie:

Primitive Calculators, Paul Kelly, Painters and Dockers, Psychotic Turnbuckles, Go-Betweens, White Cross, Screaming Tribesmen.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:10pm Fredericks:

This is a little Sharrocky.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:10pm Michael:

DOh! Listening on the web here in UK and think I heard (maybe) last word of mention of my pledge cos internet crashed. Damn! Fame at last, not!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:11pm Cecile:

yep, Julie.

Rose Tattoo, Birthday Party, Moodists, Lime Spiders
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:12pm Cecile:

Pledge to fmu to fix the Flash stream
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:13pm Cecile:

Oh, and the Triffids.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:13pm Caryn:

And all these lists don't even take into account the various Aussie Stock/Aitken/Waterman cookie-cutter creations. Thank the heavens. (Although I have a soft spot for Kylie...)
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:14pm glenn:

and kylie has soft spots for you, caryn.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:14pm Cecile:

Or old bands like Skyhooks, LRB and Sherbet who continued into the 80s with varying levels of success.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:15pm Scuttle:

Olympic Sideburns
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:15pm Cecile:

  Thu. 3/1/12 4:16pm Cecile:

Ich bin ein Berliner
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:22pm Cecile:

I think that's all for now.
At 3 a.m. I'm sure I'll wake up and start running off names...Beasts of Bourbon...in my sleep...Grong Grong...
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:23pm Cecile:

Lipstick Killers

  Thu. 3/1/12 4:24pm glenn:

  Thu. 3/1/12 4:25pm Cecile:

Australia rules.
Home of the Necks!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:26pm Cecile:

  Thu. 3/1/12 4:26pm Cecile:

day ee day dee day ee

  Thu. 3/1/12 4:26pm Upsidedown Mike:

Actually, it's morning tea time here (in NZ)
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:27pm Cecile:

Nice, upsidedown Mike.

NZ might be my favorite musical country!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:27pm Chris from DC:

Grey Daturas, Whitehorse, Sand Pebbles, Hunters and Collectors...
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:28pm Ike:

Holy crap, Clay Pigeon has organized the phone room into a crack chorus!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:28pm BSI:

  Thu. 3/1/12 4:29pm Caryn:

Speaking of NZ musicians, I'd like to say that the only Oscar I cared about this year was the one for original song. And yay! Bret McKenzie won!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:30pm Cecile:

I said Hunters and Collectors, Chris. LOL!
But I missed those other folks...thanks!!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:30pm Cecile:

I know, Caryn! I missed the ceremony, but only regretted I missed his win.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:32pm Chris from DC:

Oops, sorry! Got carried away.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:32pm Upsidedown Mike:

The NZ music scene is nice .. and oddly, sometimes I learn more about it through fmu!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:33pm Cecile:

Ha, hardly!

Caryn, we should meet up in New Zealand and go stalk Jemaine Clement, er, I mean see loads of really good bands...
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:33pm MD:

  Thu. 3/1/12 4:33pm Goalkeeper:

Have we reached the goal yet?
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:34pm Cecile:

Upsidedown Mike - many Minneapolis bands get more play on 'FMU that at home. I completely know.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:34pm Cecile:

MD - RIGHT ON. How could I forget them....
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:34pm Marc:

What if Clay Pidgeon was paired with Professor Dum Dum for next years Marathon? That would be great radio.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:35pm Cecile:

Marc, I would last 15 minute, which would be 5 minutes longer than any DumDum show I've listened to...
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:37pm Cecile:

Cannanes? I get them mixed up with the Spinanes...
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:37pm jk:

who's the grand prize director?
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:39pm BSI:

HOT DAMN, this premium sounds like more fun than a bag of mayonnaise. Me want swag! Fabulous stuff.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:39pm Mpls. Thom:

You guys got me grinnin ear to ear and thats not easy when I'm at work.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:41pm Michael:

Listening to BBC 6 Music in one ear and WFMU in the other - radio paradise if it ever existed!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:44pm Mr Donut:

Positively 4th Street is in Dinkytown
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:44pm Caryn:

@Cecile: great idea! It's a plan so cunning you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:45pm Mpls. Thom:

make a series of photographs, of chance encountered people sharing a set of headphones listening to music. one of the earpieces in one persons ear the second in the others.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:45pm Fredericks:

Now you've mentioned Hot-Wheels Fabio!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:46pm BSI:

  Thu. 3/1/12 4:47pm Amanda:

Thank you for the serenades, Clay. You make songs I was hoping to never hear again (except "I Love LA," which obvs. rules) a pleasure. I like that everything is silly and unpredictable but in ways that always fit. Blinking and saying "what the --" to the radio all the time, this to me is one of life's keenest pleasures. And then also Fabio is a great curator.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:47pm kata:

tuning in late, what a treat! love the Fab-Clay tag team..
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:48pm glenn:

is there a godwyn's law for weasels?
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:48pm nyoukis:

AMAZING ALBUM!!! and its Go-SHAY, fab
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:48pm kata:

it's pronounced "Go-shay" Fab..
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:48pm Amanda:

AW yeah, I magicked up that Harmonia for myself through Love Power. And I wanted that record. Love Neu, dig Cluster, haven't heard it. Thanks, guys!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:49pm bob:

bbc6 is paylisted -about 85%-- pluggers etc
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:49pm Caryn:

Intrigued by the Koreyoshi Kurahara prize. Only familiar with "The Warped Ones" and its' pseudo-sequel "Black Sun", but the "Thirst for Love" book is superb. And Kurahara's "Nankyoku Monogatari" was fantastic.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:50pm bob:


  Thu. 3/1/12 4:50pm Cecile:

ha, I love it caryn.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Was gone for awhile there...

What bands were you all naming earlier? Australian ones?
THE CHURCH!! thx Mariano!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:50pm Michael:

Play some Boards of Canada!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:50pm Cecile:

Yes, Australian.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:51pm bob:

wfmu is not in the pay of domino records and sony etc
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:51pm Matt from Springfield:

Several more "adopters" have joined the board:
Cecile, 12539, Caryn (pending!), thank you guys!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:51pm fred:

@Caryn: was it the track you were looking for?
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Boards of Canada would work -- Fabio should approve, and Clay can sing over them!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:55pm Cecile:

thank YOU matt!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:56pm Cecile:

Green Hornet!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:56pm Mr Donut:

green hornet - and it was Al hirt
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:56pm Mariano:

Green Hornet! That's the show.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:56pm Caryn:

@fred: yeah! Thank you soooooo much!

Fabio, it's "The Green Hornet"!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Kiwi support! The Antipodes are ruling today!
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:57pm BSI:

  Thu. 3/1/12 4:58pm G:

@Matt: Wasn't at keyboard when you posted your original adopter query. I adopted Monica's board. I've adopted someone or something every year since adoptions started, maybe four or so years ago now.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:58pm Matt from Springfield:

I like the Green Hornet trumpet, didn't know Al Hirt played that.

Wynton Marsalis is a very "flourishy" trumpet/coronet player, but his speed and agility is insane! Love him! My fav "Flight of the Bumble Bee" is played by him. He also plays Herman Bellstedt's arrangement of "Funiculi Funicula" amazingly.
  Thu. 3/1/12 4:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Congrats, thank you G! Irwin -> Monica is a nice transition.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:00pm BSI:

still suffering adopter separation-anxiety from Bryce and the Vinyl Cross... heavy sigh...
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:00pm Michael:

Yeah, sing over Boards of Canada man Clay! Come on! Clay vs Aquarius.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:01pm fred:

Adoptions seems to have been taken over by the TSA or something. So many are pending right now, and have been for days.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Blumin IS awesome! Saturday nights, check out his show followed by Joe McGasko. They are the Diumvirate of Saturday nights when they talk on Air!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:02pm Caryn:

I wonder how many young people know about the "Green Hornet" connection (especially seeing as the new movie version wasn't a huge hit)? Methinks most of them only connect the track with "Kill Bill".
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:03pm Matt from Springfield:

To those who didn't listen to Julie's show this week, some new items in the Merriam-Webster-Pigeon dictionary:

Diumvirate: Fabio and Clay, because they're DYING without Julie!
Biumvirate: Julie and Clay, because they're getting BY just fine!
Triumvirate: Fabio, Clay and Julie, because they'll TRY anything!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:05pm Matt from Springfield:

We are live! In Leeds!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:06pm Michael:

Hey Maxine, hia from just up the road in Middlesbrough!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:06pm Amanda:

Winner of Fabio's strange prize!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:07pm jk:

Clay, you're killing my here with that weather report!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:07pm Michael:

Leeds, capital of Northern england! ;-)
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:08pm MD:

TOP 40 CLAY!!!!!!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Is Julie there tonight?
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:08pm seang:

  Thu. 3/1/12 5:08pm fred:

Less than an hour left in that shift, and the meter is barely above the halfway mark.
Can someone make a pledge big enough to silence Clay?
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:09pm ji:

daleks !
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:10pm Caryn:

  Thu. 3/1/12 5:10pm jk:

Does anyone know the director of the grand prize?
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:10pm Amanda:

"Is that a good prize?"
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:11pm Pidgeilante Justice:

If the goal gets reached, Fabio and Clay should do DJ Battle III next week
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:12pm 0ju:

i'll give a million dollars for clay to sing humble pie
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:13pm common:

  Thu. 3/1/12 5:16pm hamburger:

le hamburger!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:16pm m:

she killed herself with her girlfriend
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:16pm pierre:

Carefull with hamburgeur!!!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:16pm Looms:

Fabio could mention that Gainsbourg's lyrics are mostly about sex; people might call in ;)
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:18pm pierre:

France is well represented on FMU, Looms and Fred are there to check things out.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:19pm Pull!:

Clay would be one of those people that would talk over a song at its most awesome moments.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:19pm Ric:

Goddamn – missed Harmonia!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:20pm Ric:

Play it again...
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:21pm Pidgeilante Justice:

Stairway to Freebird
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:23pm Caryn:

@jk: Koreyoshi Kurahara
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:23pm fred:

@pierre: France has been renamed Pierreland by now around here.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:24pm Tom from Gravesend Bklyn !!:

probably one of the best Tag Teams here ... but Fab Show alone makes you feeling good and you know it be Friday soon !!! --- I Thing "Heart" from Wash State Not Bc Canada ?
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:24pm pierre:

The more i listen to Clay, the more i love him.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:25pm fred:

Or maybe Pierrestan?
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:25pm Upsidedown Mike:

w00t matt!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:25pm Tom from Gravesend Bklyn !!:

  Thu. 3/1/12 5:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Hooray! Un set de Gainsbourger! Merci beaucoup!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:25pm Chris from DC:

Jaxx, actually.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:26pm pierre:

@fred: i'd prefer LoomsFredPierreLand, but im nobody to say. :)
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@pierre: In your honor, "Listener Extraordinaire-terre" :)
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:27pm Cecile:

this is such a great song...
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:28pm Matt from Springfield:

@Chris: The Jaxx is literally the 3rd closest business to the house where I grew up--been there several times. Did Clay mention that club?
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:28pm password:00ju1zzMcr:

lots of Clay fans here today
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:28pm Cecile:

didn't Kraftwerk break up, stop performing?
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:29pm fred:

@pierre: I don't want a whole country or station. I just want a few minutes or airtime about one month from now. You and Looms can have the rest.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:29pm Matt from Springfield:

There are LOTS of Clay fans, even when they're not here!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:29pm pierre:

@matt: that's pretty cool!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:29pm Looms:

@Pierre: well, I don't know: I'm a French/Italian/Hungarian mixture.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:29pm Caryn:

Just when I thought Clay couldn't be nuttier, he breaks out the German accent! There is no limit! And I love it!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:30pm Chris from DC:

He referred to it as Zach's or something:)
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:30pm Matt from Springfield:

@Fabio: You didn't think of Gunnar & Matthew Frederiksen, the 80s Danish performance collective? ;)
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:30pm kata:

I love Fabio's ignorance of mainstream pop culture! so cute.

Was that a Pakistani German accent I heard?
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:30pm Dan B From Upstate:

I've said it before, I'll say it a million times more: Clay Pigeon is a freaking ROCK STAR!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:30pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: Clay sans frontieres!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:30pm BSI:

we're all just clay fans on the bus.
or something?
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:31pm Matt from Springfield:

@MKitty: "Or, How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Starcastle"!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:31pm pierre:

@fred : airtime?
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:31pm password:00ju1zzLMcr:

its Clays world ...were just renting
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:31pm Vitamin Beer:

Clay is the Flavor Flav to Fabio's Chuck D.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:31pm Caryn:

@Matt: heh! And his fan mag? "Clay-zine sans frontieres"!
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:32pm fred:

@Caryn: can Clay outlast Professor Dum Dum at this challenge of "perpendicular" accents?
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:33pm fred:

@Looms: French/Italian/Tunisian here, we're close enough
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:34pm david:

"The Look" - Roxette
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:34pm Caryn:

@fred: remains to be seen, but I think Clay is less interested in keeping it up. He'll just jump to some other schtick in two seconds flat.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:35pm Looms:

@Fred: yep! sounds good to me.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:35pm Ric:

some day a rain will come and wash the streets clean
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:36pm Caryn:

Why did my stream have to break down after a second? But now that I hear it, yep, "Taxi Driver".
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:36pm david:

No, "nanananana, nanananananana, nanananananana, nanananana, nana, nanananananana, she's got the look"
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:36pm listener gary:

Matamoras Pa is about 6 miles west of Mt Hope ...on the delaware river in a corner with NY, NJ, and Pa.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:36pm Ike:

Matamoras is close to Mt. Hope, almost right across the Delaware River.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:36pm Jim:

The applause that followed JFK's famous "we choose to go to the moon" quote from a Rice University speech was actually for a joke that immediately preceded that quote. The joke went "But why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas?"
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:36pm Vitamin Beer:

Theme song from Grease 3: Solar Powered Boogaloo
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:36pm pierre:

@Looms: my grandfather's half lebanese, and i like to think at myself as Scottish, so, anything's possible.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:37pm Fredericks:

Caryn, I have received emails from Clay written with a German accent.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:37pm kata:

thanks for singing that one out, david, I was resisting youtubing it...

@Pierre: Lebanese food is so great. Used to eat a lot of it when I lived in Senegal (as strange as it might seem)
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:38pm pierre:

I'd love a Dusty show from Paris, that would be something.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:38pm Caryn:

@Fredericks: that is awesome
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Slàinte, pierre!
Do you know where in Scotland your ancestors came from? I have a lot of Lowland/Borders Scots, Ulster-Scots and scattered Highland and Islands ancestors.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:40pm MarmaladeKitty:

can clay speak french?
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:40pm Caryn:

Hey, Magda's there early! Maybe she's checking out her adopted DJ before taking to the phones.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:40pm seang:

is that Tim from Daddy's Hideaway?
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:41pm Caryn:

@MK: maybe not, but he can probably go nuts in some faux-French accent.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:41pm david:

you know Fabio can spit... Clay and he should freestyle battle it out
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@Looms: I love all Mediterranean food: Italian, Greek, eastern Med, Arab, Moroccan, Spanish...it freakin' ROCKS!

@pierre: Or, any foreign Dusty Show. When he was in Switzerland, he should have interviewed locals and tourists in the towns where he was staying. An international perspective.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:42pm Looms:

@Kitty: can Clay say: "les chaussettes de l'archiduchesse sont sèches, archi sèches"?
And most important: can you? ;)
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:42pm Looms:

@Matt: I'm with you
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:43pm kata:

Fabio, have you heard Alvarius B's recent record ? he covers several Morricone pieces..
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:43pm password:00ju1zLMcr:

"les chaussettes de l'archiduchesse sont sèches, archi sèches" ;)
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:44pm Matt from Springfield:

@Looms: That's what we call a "tongue twister"! What's the French, for difficult sentences to speak?

And, awesome you love Mediterranean as well!

Speaking of Switzerland and skiing, Clay took my pledge on Julie's show, and I told him I was glad he didn't get a concussion this time! First time he came back from skiing without a scratch in a while! :)
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:47pm pierre:

@Matt: well, I'm don't have Scottish origins, but I go there since I'm 3 and I love Scotland so much that I like to think as myself as Scottish :) plus I've an old friend who's like an aunt for me.

And I agree a Clay Pigeon in every city.

A short Finnish tongue twister: vesihiisi sihisi hississä
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Group Douet is a hit on Brian Turner's show, he plays them quite a bit!
(Psst! Clay! If you're going to do desert voices, do "Dutchman's Gold!" :D )
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:48pm Dave in PA:

The funniest thing is to use one of those translators to convert from English to some other language and then back to English.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: Ha ha, "water devil hissed in the elevator"!
In German class I learned a "Zungenbrecher" or two, have to see if I recall them...
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:50pm fred:

I'm still recovering about the one time I pledged to Fabio's show. I didn't know I was forcing him to reveal his personal mantra when I did. I'm wary of these stunts now.

@PA Dave: Absolutely! A bonus feature on Monty Python and the Holy Grail DVD has a scene from the movie, dubbed into Japanese, and the re-translation back into English subtitled! :)
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:51pm Dave in PA:

and so eventually the complete works of Shakespear
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:52pm Matt from Springfield:

@pierre: Ah, Scotsman of the heart! :)
Where's your favorite place to visit in Scotland?

Bonjour Clay! :)

@Matt: many, I love the diversity of this country.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:57pm Brass Knuckles:

I want to hear Fabio take his turn interrupting and hum Merzbow songs while Clay is talking.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:58pm Ike:

Ken sounds slightly high.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:59pm Caryn:

@Matt: yep, we Finns are not safe in elevators. It's all water devils, Björks and Robert Smiths over here...
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:59pm Vitamin Beer:

Well, Ken and Andy's show does suck.
  Thu. 3/1/12 5:59pm pierre:

Glencoe! Beautiful, like Brigadoon!
