  Wed. 8/29/12 9:05am Dan B From Upstate:

Kinda hoping to hear "I'm On A Boat" at least once. But my heart isn't set on it.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:05am bw:

peeing in a bottle.. and you demonize dad.. just great

I think you'll find that Ken's legs exist below the knee

Aaaargh, matey!

which knee, the right? Left? High or wee?
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:13am f0f0 }:

Hi Ken! I was expecting you transmitting live from the waters of the beautiful Lake Minnatonka where you can hear the waves splashing and -if you listen closely- the flying fishes in the background (well, at least according to the Burp Concerto).
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:14am jan:

Ken-Do you have a life jacket and sunblock, or at least a hat,
long sleeves, and trousers? A radio personality is very vulnerable outside of the studio.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:14am Keith in VT:

This song changed my life. Really.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:14am Dave B:

  Wed. 8/29/12 9:19am Thatan, Printh of Darkneth:

Did I thay cood? I meant cook!
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:19am AnAnonymousParty:

OK, that was weird, I turned this on and Winamp popped up a second instance over the one that was already playing "You dropped a bomb on me", and it didn't even dawn on me that maybe I had two things going at the same time.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:20am tim from champaign:

Have you tried the poop deck yet, Ken?
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:20am bw:

what number do you want folks to call?
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:20am Robert:

I've been a customer at the Rite Aid in Newton, when I packed the wrong pills to stay a few days at my friends' in Hampton Twp. My friend Ed now in the nursing home in Newton might've had a sissy bottle to spare if I'd known; he was used to such expedients from years of living in a car in the past.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:21am Aaron in Jcity:

are you near the swamp
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:21am Rear Admiral:

Up y'oars!
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:22am f0f0 }:

Billy Jam and Ken! You mighty radio dj globetrotters! I can't wait to see in your playlists pages:

Today's Programme: Live from Mare Sirenum (Mars) transmitting live from Curiosity III. March 17th 2017

At least that would make for a great stunt for the marathon.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:23am dale:

oooh, you're an hour away - would we need a boat to meet you?
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:23am Landlubber:

Listeners should actually swim (or float or drift) on by for the meet-up, shouldn't they?
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:23am Caryn:

Hello all! Finally back by my radio after a few weeks. Maybe the nice lake breeze will cool the 103 degree fever I picked up on my holiday.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:24am still b/p:

Ah, the Ken-Tiki expedition, to demonstrate that the peoples of Bear Swamp could have had contact with ancient Jerseyites.

bailers and pumps are on our dock should you need
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:26am Parq:

Vicki's bemused giggle proves what I've always known; women just love it when you mention urination.

Jeez you're way the hell up there.

  Wed. 8/29/12 9:29am f0f0 }:

Vicki,

You should also do a live show from the Thames..or at least from the Pond in Hyde Park in the company of some friendly royal swans!
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:29am Billy Jam:

OH NO!
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:29am jbm:

The sound quality is so much better than the last lake remote. There's that, at least.

Ken actually SOUNDED like he was in space on the phone
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:31am Sam:

I want to hear sounds from outer space!!!
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:31am Caryn:

For a while there, I thought Ken was recreating a scene from a "Piranhas" movie... If any flying piranhas show up, let's hope Ken manages to load a pic onto the playlist before he gets eaten.

When are you scheduled to jump the lake shark?

I love Grace Kelly, but I only want to see Kate Hepburn handling the True Love in the pool.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:35am Caryn:

@sb/p: so true about the Kelly/Hepburn preference.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:35am mark vt:

Has anybody seen that Gumby episode where he gets stuck on the moon and his dad has to take a fire truck ladder to get him? There was a sign on the moon telling him he needs to wear these weights because he is like 8 times lighter or something.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:39am Parq:

That chimp gif and that Dengue track are the best gif/track combo ever.

OOOH wfmu sillage in NNJ!

pretty sure it's legal to urinate over the side of a boat in nj. number 2 is frowned on but still legal if a sinker

  Wed. 8/29/12 9:48am Dan B From Upstate:

Will this be in the WFMU movie?
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:50am Obvious Speculation:

Not discovered by New York hipsters? I guess that leaves open that it *has* been discovered by NJ hipsters!

  Wed. 8/29/12 9:50am Landlubber:

If Michael Phelps says it's okay to urinate in an Olympic pool (http://tinyurl.com/phelps-aquatic-urine) what couldn't be okay in Ken's lake?
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:50am Caryn:

If Ken was on a Mothra-fighting boat, this would be a more action-oriented episode. And I would be riveted.
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:51am Buzz Aldrin:

Yay Ken! Extra Vehicular Activity! That separates the men from the boys.

If you need help tying off, get in touch with Major Tom.

You should have Andy along simply as emergency rations, in case you get stranded somewhere. Plenty of meat there. (and if you have any of those bath salts left, you could eat those first to get in a cannibalistic mood)
  Wed. 8/29/12 9:57am MuthaFricken Pirates of the NJ Lake:

we are going to board Ken's boat and hold him for ransom - pay up $100,000 or he drowns - or is it a mini Marathon?

Does the guy getting in the kayak have a semi-automatic?
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:02am Neg-guh-tor:

Ken! Check their flag before you let them board. Could be Somali pirates.

Talk about clear. I can hear a rope or something very faintly rubbing/creaking. I thought it was a sound happening here where I am, but when I muted, it was obviously something from the broadcast.

occupy cosy lake! sounds like a fascist body (of water)
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:22am Sam:

You should absolutely chase the illegal fishers away. It's up to everyone to protect the environment and enforce the rules. You want to have a lake with no fish left in it?
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:22am Cecile:

we don't have lake associations where I came from.
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:23am Sam:

Where do you come from Cecile, the desert? LOL

I come from Upper Michigan.
There are plenty of lakes. The townships and cities and the state requlate the lakes.
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:27am Cecile:

one of them is Lake Superior. It needs more than just a single association to watch over it.
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:28am βrian:

Me too, Cecile. I'm not used to seeing buildings along the shore either.

pot n poppy deal in the batch tub show
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:43am Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks for the lake broadcast. I think the logical extension of broadcasting from a boat and a paddle board is to broadcast from under the water. Does anyone have a mini-sub to haul out there?
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:44am f0f0 }:

If there were some Vanilla Sky 7 involved we could also call it "bathsaltstub show".
  Wed. 8/29/12 10:44am G:

Don't pull the plug out of the bottom of the boat.

It's so convenient for the Dutch to have all those poppies growing all over the place and along the highways. I wonder if that's one historical reason for the free availability of drugs in the Netherlands?

Listening makes me want to get back out to lake country haha. Thanks for the show Ken! Smooth sailing, comrades

Why is Ken on a boat?

  Wed. 8/29/12 11:07am Ike:

@listener mark @10:59, I believe Ken already did a broadcast from a roof in the early 1990s as a marathon stunt. Can any old-timers confirm?

For some reason I really liked the show when home depot guy came to do the carpet. One of my favorites. Ken really descended into madness.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:09am f0f0 }:

yeah, great idea!!!!!!!! it would be a great excuse to play all those boiler-themed songs that WFMU DJs are afraid to play.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:09am Dan B From Upstate:

Awesome, Luke! We'll have to trade hats!

Ken mentioned a while back that the sun glare on the lake keeps him from seeing comments
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:19am Robert:

That disease would be diabetes, Ken.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:20am Cecile:

I can believe that. We have some truly brackish lakes up here.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:22am mark vt:

I knew a guy that went to Papau New Guinea to help film a documentary of a very remote tribe. He said there were parasites in the rivers that would go into your urethra and had barbs like a hook and could only go in one way and stay there.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:23am Ricardo Montalban:

Yes. Candiru, I think they're called. <squirms uncomfortably>
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:24am still b/p:

I think Truly Brackish is a female Dickens character.

More of the nutso-faced ("terrifyingly hilarious") synchronized swimmers would be suitable visuals today.

@mark vt: that's the candiru. It more commonly attacks women than men. Nasty piece of work.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:24am mark vt:

He also said there were big leeches that would go up your bunghole and people would use a tobacco plug to keep them away.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:25am Wikipedia:

"These smaller species are known for an alleged tendency to invade and parasitise the human urethra; however, despite ethnological reports dating back to the late 19th century, the first documented case of the removal of a candiru from a human urethra did not occur until 1997, and even that incident has remained a matter of controversy."

more candiru stories please
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:27am Ricardo Montalban:

I think there's a few of them in William S. Burroughs novels. Can't remember which at the moment.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:28am still b/p:

Someone tried to tell me that if you're out of the water peeing into it, candiru can go up the pee stream -- like a salmon -- to gain entry.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:28am Carmichael:

My nest album will be called Candiru.

how is candiru pronounced? rhymes with scotcheroos?

Candiru, we can make it together ....

wait. is it candiru or canidru?

Rule 3 is my favorite.

Hey Ken, maybe you should take your computer down to the hold to read it. It's down the stairs, next to the scullery.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:33am Caryn:

Next, let's talk about those worms who live in your eyeball and eat it slowly. Or the ones that live in your lungs until they crawl up and out of your mouth... Ugh, the world is full of yucky stuff.

@mark vt: It's candiru http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candiru

Really? I think this is some of the worst radio a have ever heard. But not turning it off. Both ends of the bell curve for any endeavor can be fascinating for their very existence.

Ken has been abducted by the monster of Lake Owassa!
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:40am Carmichael:

It sounds like we're hearing the Coast Guard fishing Ken out of the water with a gaffing hook.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:40am clueless in MI:

Ike; yes, Ken climbed naked out onto the roof a few years back as a marathon stunt.

PUT THE AMAZING CANDIRU BLOCKER IN PLACE AND...NOOO PROBLEM!!!
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:41am Caryn:

@sb/p: yeah, most of the stories seem aimed at scaring guys. No threat of the pee stream salmoning in real life. But pee freely while IN the water... And most witnessed cases involve women (easier urethra to get into).

What saves this from being an absolute exercise in dead air is the sound of wind & water slapping against the hull of the canoe and the beep of the wireless mic. , but Harry we can hear you
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:43am Ike:

The sound of the wind is gorgeous for some reason. It's very calming. I can pretend to be out there on the lake instead of at work.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:43am Mark:

"Never get out of the boat." Absoultely goddamn right! Unless you were goin' all the way ... Ken got off the boat. He split from the whole fuckin' program. (apologies to Mr.Sheen)
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:45am f0f0 }:

paul b,

There was no dead air at all! The Zebra tune by Young Marble Giants was -and still is- playing and if I remember correctly, this is the signal for us the listeners to call in.
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:46am mark vt:

the wiki says the candiru is in the Amazon. Not anything I could see about Papau New Guinea. Maybe a similar species?
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:48am Wikipedia:

@mark vt: Maybe a story that's so "good" people use it regardless of facts :)

that's "Papua" btw
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:49am Carmichael:

The white trash cousin of the candiru lives in the swamps. They only have a few teeth ....
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:51am Carmichael:

Don't say "welcome", Ken. Say, "Ahoy!". Landlubber ...
  Wed. 8/29/12 11:52am Caryn:

@mark vt: a few years back, there was a story that supposedly, some pacu imported to Papua from Brazil had attacked two fishermen after having followed the urine trails they had left, and then bitten off the guys' weiners. So that's probably the source of the story. But whether the report was accurate at the time? Who knows.
