Listener comments!

  Fri. 5/4/12 3:01pm Looms:

Hi Kurt!
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:03pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

no, no, a thousand times no!
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:03pm Looms:

@DCE: what's the trouble?
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:04pm Minnesota Jeff:

Don't pull a blade on a guy in shades. No.
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:04pm paula pc:

if the song was an excuse for the .gif, then the song itself could be excused I think...
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:05pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I can't look at Corey Hart doing that over and over and over. I'll go (more) insane!
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:05pm BSI:

Corey Hyperventilate.
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:06pm Van in DC:

Is that who that is?
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:08pm Caryn:

Oy, Corey Hart. Although the "literal video" version of Sunglasses at Night is reasonably funny.
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:09pm BSI:

SO FAR, IT ISN'T ENOUGH: I can still see the clapping girls from last week. Redhead snapping neck, inferno of clap neck clap neck.... god, i need tranquilizers....
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:10pm northguineahills:

Is Maki Ishii related to Ken Ishii?
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:10pm still b/p:

I think someone asked him what kind of market he shops at and he's saying, "Halal halal halal!"
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:13pm Minnesota Jeff:

HA! @ still b/p
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:13pm Caryn:

@sb/p: hah! Also, is that just your attempt to steer the conversation to food again?
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:16pm BSI:

Meeting the missus for a curry tonight. I win.
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:20pm still b/p:

I'm full of Trader Joe turkey chili, leftover broccoli and rice pilaf and apple. I couldn't eat more than a few bites of goat or lamb, halal or otherwise. Ask me in ten or fifteen minutes, though.
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

dude's gonna bust a spleen if he keeps that shit up
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:26pm Parq:

Hi all. Some shit about Adam Yauch, yeah? He's one of a number of arts celebs who have dropped out of my kid's school. Bet everyone's talking about this up there.
Avatar    Fri. 5/4/12 3:27pm DJKG:

good day everyone!
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:30pm Van in DC:

Sad news of course. But I never was into that group at all. I didn't have any idea who Adam was. Way too young though. Man.
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:31pm common:

so sad...but this corey hart slow is great
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:31pm Looms:

Jeez! Sad news.
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:35pm Caryn:

Because of the cancer, the possibility of MCA dying loomed in the background, but it still came as a shock...
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:41pm Jaca Pwal Adamu:

what are you playing now?
Avatar    Fri. 5/4/12 3:43pm DJKG:

berio, 'laborintus 2'
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:46pm G:

The kind of cancer he had tends to develop along and around the nerves in the face/jaw and can be hard to remove completely, unless noticed pretty early.
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:50pm Jaca Pwal Adamu:

Reminds me a little of "In Asylum":

  Fri. 5/4/12 3:52pm Jaca Pwal Adamu:

going a little crazy watching Corey in his sunglasses at night
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:54pm Minnesota Jeff:

I am digging this, big time.
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:54pm Jaca Pwal Adamu:

This Vijay Iyer track composed by Henry Threadgill is way tight.
digging it too.
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:56pm Timbuk3:

The Future's So Dark, He Gotta Wear Shades
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:58pm Jaca Pwal Adamu:

Ha ha,,,funny but not so funny
  Fri. 5/4/12 3:58pm Mike East:

I got the chana saag extra spicy. WAWAWOW. That deserves 3 pepper icons if anything does.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:03pm das:

So cool, sounds like a demented 'Rumble'
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:04pm dc pat:

Yes, I dig the Opsvik!
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:06pm Jaca Pwal Adamu:

more please more please from "Accelerando">
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:07pm Carmichael:

Hiya Kurt and all yous guys. I'm anchored to my chair by work and a massive burrito from lunch. Though my keyboard's a knockin', don't stop a rockin' ...
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:12pm Jaca Pwal Adamu:

Oi Eivind - diggin' your King Henry VIII like title hopeth and believeth and the dark lounge of your sound.
Please KG play some more this aft.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:13pm Cecile:

Opevik, you better not have requested Corey Hart. Just sayin'.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:14pm Cecile:

My friend had cancer similar to MCAs. He was lucky to have only lost a chunk out of the underside of his tongue, and eight months of chemo.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:15pm Cecile:

Aw, very cool! Great request.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:16pm dc pat:

Dang , thanks for this--something new to get into...
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:17pm 1 Corinthians 13:7:

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:18pm still b/p:

Love means never having to say you're Corey.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:19pm Caryn:

Sinatra's voice so clearly mirrors his age that it's easy to place most recordings. Nice.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:21pm Carmichael:

Love is a nose, but you better not pick it.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:21pm Caryn:

If I was with Corey, sunglasses at night would be a likely choice. Anything to obscure him in my line of sight. Although earplugs would be the most important accessory.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:23pm Cecile:

the sound of complete co-optatiion is quite pleasant.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:26pm Caryn:

So, the 17th ballad? Okay, Cornelis.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:27pm Caryn:

Mind you, I love me some Evert Taube.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:28pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

perhaps Cornelius isn't very creative in his titling abilities.
Avatar    Fri. 5/4/12 4:29pm DJKG:

cecile, i love that you're the protector of the top 40 requests!
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:29pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

man, soundcloud and bandcamp aren't blocked at work anymore...they're really loosening up around here...
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:29pm Caryn:

@DCE: well, it's a song by Evert Taube, so Cornelis isn't responsible for the title. Not the best Taube song by a long shot (or the most imaginatively titled).
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:30pm Minnesota Jeff:

Whoa, this song. Wow. This is awesome!
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:32pm Caryn:

There seems to be a "versions of great songwriters' stuff" theme going on now. Which I certainly don't mind.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:39pm dc pat:

Eugene! Saw him play Nazi Punks Fuck Offonce
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:42pm Minnesota Jeff:

!!!
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:43pm Cecile:

I saw him do Petey Pablo's "Raise Up" on banjo once!
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:44pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

smelly wah-wah, you say?
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:46pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

P.U.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:51pm Minnesota Jeff:

This sounds like it was recorded underneath an airplane.
Avatar    Fri. 5/4/12 4:53pm DJKG:

i suspect sapthuran would be ok with that.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:54pm paulcrudd:

This is an interesting direction the Beastie Boys have taken
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:55pm Jeremiade:

Nice. RIP MCA.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:56pm Minnesota Jeff:

RIP MCA. You have no idea what you meant, and still mean, to a couple of rural kids from Minnesota. My brother me are pouring one out for you.
  Fri. 5/4/12 4:57pm Minnesota Jeff:

my brother AND me* - Thanks kurt!
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:02pm Carmichael:

*me and my brother* ....
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:03pm Caryn:

The Beastie Boys were formed the year I was born. I literally grew up with their music. RIP MCA. I have high hopes for 49 days from now, when you'll be back.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:06pm Cecile:

I saw them when they had just recorded Cookie Puss and were still a punk band. They were pretty lousy but funny to watch. A real mess.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:08pm Jaca Pwal Adamu:

yawn
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:09pm Bylistener:

tough crowd
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:10pm Mike East:

anyone remember the Hello Nasty infomercials they were running when that record came out? I happened to be really into watching infomercials at the same time they were running that in the usual infomercial time slot. That brought my fan-dom to a new level.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:10pm Cecile:

more Waylon and Madame and less Edgar Bergen.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:12pm Minnesota Jeff:

Dream Baby Dream, one of the greatest songs of all time. This is sounding like a great cover. The Boss's is amazing as well.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:13pm Harry Lemmon:

Are you sure that's Bucky? Sounds like Stuart from Mad TV.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:13pm dc pat:

Right on Caryn, 49 days..
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:14pm northguineahills:

Not bad...and the Thing kicks ass live!
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:14pm Minnesota Jeff:

Please fill me in on the 49 days bit - Is this some sort of Buddhism reference?
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:18pm Caryn:

@MinnJeff: yes, according to Buddhist beliefs, reincarnation takes place approx. 49 days after death.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:20pm Minnesota Jeff:

Well then I have my fingers crossed for a raspy voiced billy goat that drop a mean bass groove.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:22pm Caryn:

I'm kinda rooting for a god looking after a mountain in Tibet. Inspiring visitors to drop a mean bass groove, of course.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:27pm slugluv1313:

SHINY NEW YOUT CENTERS!!! oh where is this happy dude from?!?!?! (sounds *almost* HUNGARIAN but not quite)

  Fri. 5/4/12 5:30pm Caryn:

So are these people Slovenian? (Purely based on language)
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:30pm Caryn:

Ah, Kurt answered it while I was sending. Never mind.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:31pm slugluv1313:

thank you, Mr. Kurt Gottschalk!!! i *knew* that he was somehow . . . RELATED :)
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:32pm slugluv1313:

thank you too, Caryn!
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:37pm Jeremiade:

Any day I listen to Suicide is automatically a good day, but when their music comes at me over the airwaves, even in cover form, that's an even better day. A Noo Yawk vibe is on a slow simmer...
Avatar    Fri. 5/4/12 5:38pm DJKG:

the pleasure is all mine, jeremiade.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:51pm Parq:

Miss Laura's doing this spot next week? We always miss you when you go, KG, but man, next Friday is a week away and it already just got better.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:51pm Yosemite Sam:

El Capitan -- yes!!
Avatar    Fri. 5/4/12 5:52pm DJKG:

Laura in two weeks. Oblique Strategies next week. Yes, Laura is swoon.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:55pm Sandy in Houston:

splendid set today.
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:56pm northguineahills:

Not familiar w/ Robert Crouch, is he related to a Peter?
  Fri. 5/4/12 5:58pm Caryn:
