Riff rock for riff raff, pop fizzle for the frazzled, chord changes of life for the menopausal teenagers, a safari in the jingle-jangle jungle. (Visit homepage.)

Listener comments!

  Fri. 8/3/12 9:07pm Van in DC:

Holy cow. I think I just wished this comments board into existence. Do I get two more wishes?
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:09pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Scott Miller unretire now.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:09pm EastVanHalen:

Nicely done. I'd be inclined to grant you two more, but I'm all out.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:10pm G.R.:

Good evening, guys. :)
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:10pm G.R.:

This sounds like more 'Ignition' music...
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:11pm Van in DC:

I'm straying off the beaten path tonight. I found myself here...normally I'm more lost than I am now.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:14pm G.R.:

Yep, I was right. :D
Van -- welcome aboard!
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:14pm James in ATL:

Great Start! Hello Pseu. That Loud Family track rocked. I need to look them up.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:18pm Upstate Ross:

Roger Daltrey never laid a hand on me!
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:19pm Chris in Newton:

Simply eloquent.. with Ketih rolling away
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:19pm EastVanHalen:

Greatest rock and roll band of all time.* (*standard disclaimers apply)
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:20pm Connie T. Empress:

Pure and easy: just like I like my things with hooks!
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:20pm john:

Darn it, 20 minutes late and we'll have to go Shoeless all night.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:20pm PB:

One of my all time favorite Who songs.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:27pm alberto:

sports, schmortz...go pseu go!!
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:28pm jmd:

Listening to your show and watching the Olympics is exactly what I'm doing! Are you watching me listening to you through the computer or television?
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:31pm Van in DC:

My new couch is calling, gotta go....still listening though.

Understand, I haven't had a couch in years. It WAY beats my old sleeping bag on a hardwood floor alternative.

Keep feeding me great tunage, thanks :)
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:33pm Siriusly:

gosh I like Fridays
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:35pm G.R.:

Always glad to hear some Oppenheimer! Not as gung-ho about the new CD ('This Racket Takes Its Toll'), though -- I'm waiting for it to come down in price a bit...
Siriusly -- TGIF. :)
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:36pm david:

I liked that Harper's... only knew "Feelin' Groovy." Is it worth picking up any of their full lengths?
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:38pm EastVanHalen:

Wow. I don't much care for Sonic Youth, but I love this song.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:38pm G:

SY always add that dissonance thing to keep the pop from getting oversweet.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:39pm PB:

I do care much for SY, a great much.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:39pm G.R.:

EVH -- same here (although I like of their other songs too, especially "Teen Age Riot," "Kool Thing," "Tunic" and their cover of "Superstar").
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:40pm Wavering Davey:

I only wish that I had the opportunity to 'like' you on Facebook. But you are surely aware that the intersection between Facebook users and Pseu listeners is a small but respectable group but alas I am not counted in those marching saints.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:40pm G.R.:

* A FEW of their other songs
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:41pm PB:

Much like the VU, SY may not be one of the absolute greatest bands in rock history but they are certainly one of the most important.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:42pm G.R.:

FOW are always good. :D
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:43pm Connie T. Empress:

LOVE this Fountains of Wayne! And I am not even in Iowa! But my good friend is: Hello Wildgirl and Catnip farm!
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:43pm david:

It's good to know "dirty" still smells "fresh" after 20 years.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:44pm EastVanHalen:

Oooooh, tangentially speaking of pop goodness: Redd Kross are coming to Vancouver. I have wanted to see them for decades. Stupidly excited.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:45pm Mike Sin:

Good evening, Pseu and listen' folks. Relaxin' at home and tuning in. Enjoying it, as usual. Nice to hear Harpers Bizarre version of "Something Better" -- just always loved that Goffin/King track. Really dig the Marianne Faithfull version as well.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:47pm James in ATL:

EVH - Yes, Redd Kross is on my bucket list of groups.
  Fri. 8/3/12 9:53pm EastVanHalen:

Mine too, James. Half of my list, to be precise.
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:04pm Pskrillex:

Is it just me or is this the darkest, super sunny thing with a hook in quite some time?
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:06pm PB:

Can always count on Nico to lighten the mood.
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:07pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Don't forget that helmet, Nico.
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:08pm PB:

Cruel Bark, cruel.
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:10pm Mrs. Horn:

That's nuthin.
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:13pm miketp:

TARZAN on TCM and PSEU and YOU. GREAT SELECTIONS enjoying it
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:17pm Connie T. Empress:

Hey ATL: how's the weather? Storms blow over?
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:23pm miketp:

what was that station back in the 80s there were 2 guys djs .they bought time n played butthole surfers dinosaur junior etc any remembrances
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:23pm Ike:

As Irwin said re: 101.9 FM, "...heard Sublime, Nirvana, Linkin Park and Verve Pipe. Guess it's an oldies station."

But it *IS* better than K-Rock. Although that's not hard. Possum vomit is better than K-Rock.
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:23pm Connie T. Empress:

YOU GO PSEU!!! Rant on radio!
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:25pm Connie T. Empress:

That is absolutely not true! I think you have a great opinion and having been a woman in radio I would be honored to rant!
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:29pm RCin MT:

No Wawa. No Chick-fil-a neither, Nancy=no one?
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:32pm d. boon:

"punk is whatever we made it to be."
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:34pm deano:

I love you Pseu! i hate to say it but Iggy did not look fat on the last tour :P you go ahead an d rant or lecture or put your fist up a dunces behind if you want i give you license to rant!
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:36pm miketp:

@ CONNIE i remember you being on the air with WILDGIRL. fmu memories keep growing n growing love it all
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:39pm Pskrillex:

Anthony Newley. The stuff of my childhood nightmares.
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:39pm Connie T. Empress:

Mike, she is the reason people use their turn signals! Loved her show, was honored to be on with her and a part of FMU by default.

Pee- Yew the stench of DEATH is upon the comments community! Clearly there is great celebration in the individual achievements of our Great Chinese Olympians.
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:56pm G.R.:

I'm actually reading at the moment (I'm almost finished with John Grisham's 'Calico Joe'). :D
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:57pm BadGuyZero [Dallas, TX]:

Looks like great tune selection as always. But alas I won't be able to listen until I get home. The band I manage has a show tonight and I'm working the merch table. I'm just peaking in to say "hi" and see what's shaking. Have a great night and weekend, everyone! I'll catch you next time.
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:57pm EastVanHalen:

I have a cluster headache. Gimme a break, already. *snivel*
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:59pm G.R.:

Cool OTC track... (RIP Bill Doss. :( )
Avatar    Fri. 8/3/12 11:00pm pseu:

thanks BGZ -- wonder what band he was working the merch table for?
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:05pm EastVanHalen:

Damn. Three weeks' sobriety down the tube.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:18pm Pskrillex:

Pseu -- Mr. Newley passed away in 1999.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:33pm Roberto:

His son Sacha went to my high school.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:34pm Chop Scott:

Pseu! I'll help you toss out the chairs--and the headphones.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:39pm EastVanHalen:

Ha, just made another Hook convert, this time on the Twitter machine.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:43pm EastVanHalen:

Nothing better for a @#$%# cluster headache than evangelism. And painkillers. Really, really good painkillers.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:43pm EastVanHalen:

And BUCKINGHAM!
