Listener comments!

  Thu. 8/30/12 3:16pm DCE:

I tip my hat to you, Fabio, in a sign of greeting, virtually.
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:17pm DroolingDJs:

Mr. Giant Man sounded extra crisp today
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:18pm Cecile:

Hola, all. I will have to bail for a bit in a bit, but when does the battle royale begin?
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:18pm DroolingDJs:

I believe around 430
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:21pm Caryn:

Fabulous start to the show today!
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:22pm Cheri Pi:

Is this the battle? Because you're winning! Whoever you are...
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:23pm Marmalade Kitty:

Fabio, Clay, make it a clean, dirty contest..
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:23pm The Turtles:

How do you determine the champ in "The battle of the bands?"
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:24pm maxim:

Om Sinai Advaitic Songs yes
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:24pm sensei:

Sweep the leg!
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:25pm DroolingDJs:

I think the winner is determined by some strange combination of a points system mixed with pigeon math
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:29pm G.W.:

Fuzzy math & I.D. card?
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:29pm Cecile:

later! be back for the battle.
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:29pm kat330:

Hi, Fabio! Will be listening and eagerly awaiting the Pidge-io duel!
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:34pm kat330:

That one horn bit sounded like cats I've owned just before upchucking a hairball.
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:38pm Caryn:

Liking the "Day Tripper" mixed with "The Party" vibe.
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:39pm kat330:

Caryn! Been a while. Hope your time away was a good time.
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:41pm tim from champaign:

Is Clay giving Fabio a head start?
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:41pm kat330:

'69.
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:42pm Caryn:

Kat! Yeah, a lovely time on our little island and then in Turku (sporting my collection of WFMU tees the whole time). But an unfortunate after-effect is that I now have the flu and a fever of about 103.
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:45pm kat330:

@Caryn: Oh, crud. I had a sinus infection at the end of last week, and a fever that broke almost as quickly as it arrived, but as recently as that was, I can feel your pain. Thoughts for a quick recover }}}}}}}}}}}}}
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:47pm kat330:

@tim: Let's hope "start" is involved at least. ;)
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:50pm northguineahills:

am I here?
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:53pm Caryn:

Thanks, kat! Funnily, I can pinpoint the exact moment I got this: my mother coughed in my face in the elevator last week. But I can't exactly feel mad at her about it. Especially as she was hobbling on her crutches and couldn't really be expected to cover her mouth very well.
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:53pm kat330:

@ngh: AFAIK you are. Any champipple to pass around, Tim?
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:54pm nic:

this is awesome_love her work
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:56pm tim from champaign:

@Kat: Nope. But I do have a bottle of Tripple to share. That's tequila and ripple. Fred G. Sanford hepped me to this drink.
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:57pm kat330:

This really nice, trippy music may be all the intoxicant needed.
  Thu. 8/30/12 3:58pm DCE:

ngh, you most certainly are not. you are THERE>>>>>>>>>>
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:01pm kat330:

Are these the voices of Clay and Fabio pre-duel?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:01pm northguineahills:

<<*<< <<*<<
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:01pm mark:

Was that recorded in the alley behind my house? Sounded familiar.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:02pm Caryn:

That was like the last hour of a family wedding: a drunk uncle and his wife talking about the dry salmon half asleep...
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:03pm kat330:

NGH, try double streaming this one. :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Gearing up for the battle!

Hello everyone!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:04pm kat330:

Aha, here is our Math You Up point keeper! (well, maybe)
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:06pm Matt from Springfield:

Kat Kettlewater!
Actually I don't know who is going to be the impartial pointkeeper, but they have announced that there will be one.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:09pm kat330:

Fabio, you may have a great advantage lulling us all into your hypnotic trance before Clay arrives. Loving it though!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:09pm ?:

If it's anything like the previous duels, each DJ will seem to have a different scoring system/
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:10pm DroolingDJs:

There are subliminal voting instructions in what Fabio is playing
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Perhaps more importantly--someone needs to UPDATE the playlist! Last time it was hopelessly behind what had actually been playing!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:14pm kat330:

Maybe there's a volunteer or intern who could be spared for that duty?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:15pm DCE:

keep wishin' folks
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:15pm Carmichael:

Late for the DJ Smackdown. Who's winning?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:17pm DroolingDJs:

The Fabio Pregame Show is on the air now... smackdown soon
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:17pm Matt from Springfield:

The Pidge has entered the building!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:17pm Caryn:

Jerry Maguire, DJs!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:17pm northguineahills:

The scoring system for this this dj duel will be analogous to the scoring system in Calvinball.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: You're not late! Smackdown runs from 4:30 to 7 today!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:18pm Mike East:

We, the listeners, are the winners.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Show - US - the MUSIC!!!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:19pm kat330:

What is this, an electronics sales duel??
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:21pm Jack:

Steve Franken died. RIP ( Chatsworth Osborne Jr. on "The Dobie Gillis Show" )
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:21pm DCE:

Mike East speak truth
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:21pm paula pc:

LET'S GOHHHH...
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:21pm Matt from Springfield:

You heard 'im: ON, with the show!!

Let's get ready to rumblllllllllllllllle!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:21pm Lulu:

The Dynamic Duo Face Off: Clay v. Fabio
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:22pm glenn:

it's like playing punch buggy, what with the arbitrary rule making and points awarding and shit.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:22pm kat330:

Driving rhythm, but is it danceable? Hm, I'll give it an 80.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh! The rules for points.

Same rules as last time? Whole numbers only, 1 to 10?
No negative points - if you don't like it, they get nothing.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:22pm DCE:

Clay on the attack with brass!!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:22pm DroolingDJs:

2 points!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:22pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Do you mind an 8 out of 10? :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:23pm DCE:

6 pts
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:23pm Matt from Springfield:

+6, good energetic start, powerful brass and slightly psych feel, like earliest Chicago.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:24pm kat330:

@glenn: Hey, dude, I got to see your "geographical" confusion over on an old BDN playlist (Charlie Lewis GTDR). I razzed you this morning, but know I'm only keeding having made a similar blunder a couple of times myself. :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:24pm glenn:

buzzcocks for the win.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:24pm Cheri Pi:

**DING DING DING*** Points please.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:24pm paula pc:

you cannot lose with the Buzzcocks
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:24pm Marmalade Kitty:

Buzzcocks!!! :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:24pm Chris from DC:

+10 for Buzzcocks, and thanks for this one
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:25pm common:

5 points for clay pigeon, 5 for fabio
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:25pm kat330:

@MathYou: I was trying for an old American Bandstand feel, not really assessing points.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:25pm Caryn:

I'll give Clay a 6.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:25pm Timb:

Timb listening in Fort Lauderdale... I've been looking forward to this for a long time. Can I be a celebrity judge?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:25pm 12539:

Full points for Buzzcocks (10?).
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:25pm kat330:

Yeah, sorry, Clay, I have to give it to Fabio here, too.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:25pm duke:

+8 for Buzzcocks
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:25pm DCE:

this is the point where I stop doing anything resembling work
but I'm feeling stingy...6 pts
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:26pm Matt from Springfield:

+8 Buzzcocks
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:26pm trsh:

How about banking, "I was making a snack" "I had to pee" points.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:26pm Timb:

Did the first track count or not? I think Clay just wanted to have a contest theme song.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:26pm Caryn:

Hmm, it's the Buzzcocks, but not one of their best ones.... so, I'll go for a 7.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:26pm Robert:

Everybody's Happy is so bad, "On with the Show", weak as it was, beats it. It's like a race, and Fabio's going backwards slower than Mr. Pigeon.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:27pm DroolingDJs:

i guess fab couldn't get away with playing the buzzcock's orgasm addict.... 5 pts for fab
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:27pm northguineahills:

I have a feeling I won't hear any 2 Live Crew diced and (dj) screwed, b/c that would be worth +eleventy!!! points.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:27pm Ike:

Puzzle gets +3 points -- not completely horrible. Buzzcocks a bit overplayed... only +5.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@Timb: Like Fabio said, the contest began there.
Only fair, after an hour of Fabio, Clay got the first shot, to "cleanse your palate" as it were.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:27pm Timb:

First round: Clay 7 / Fab 10
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:27pm al alex exand ander:

fabio took first round
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:28pm common:

it's going to be a tie.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:28pm jojo:

i thought this was the old monday night football song, that song was better
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:28pm Robert:

We need a column on the playlist to indicate whether a cut is in the duel or not, and if so whose shot it was.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:28pm DCE:

swamp boogie rock with a huge nod to Lynyrd Skynyrd? 3 pts
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:28pm Carmichael:

1st round is a tie. Who the hell is this? Head East? Molly Hatchet?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:29pm Matt from Springfield:

Is this ZZ Top? +3, shows technique but not one of their best.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:29pm kat330:

It will always be a tie. They're equally loveable DJs. :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:29pm DroolingDJs:

though clay was bringing tons of new music!!? 5 pts for playing southern rock on wfmu
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:29pm Caryn:

Giving this a 3 (almost went for a 2, but I want to leave room for lower scores).
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:29pm duke:

Who is this? +2 Don't especially like it.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:29pm DCE:

my guess is this is Molly Hatchet, but I'm not an authority on this stuff
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:29pm Matt from Springfield:

@Robert: EVERYTHING from here on out is IN the duel--unless both Fabio and Clay agree to omit it from the total.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:30pm mark:

Wait a minute ... a Chicago soundalike and now Molly Hatchet. Are you laying down Clay?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:30pm Carmichael:

I'm waiting for Clay's glam rock response.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:30pm jojo:

the irony is super thin already
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:30pm PKNY:

Thumbs up on the ass kickin'n Southern rock.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:30pm David:

Molly Hatchet on WFMU -- there is a God!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:30pm Robert:

Are we supposed to quantify each decision?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:30pm Timb:

Exceptional track by Clay on this one.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:30pm Honey Kettlewater:

Who brings a hatchet to a duel??
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:30pm DCE:

oh, well, Fabio obviously kills w this...10
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:31pm DCE:

how bout we don't overthink this whole thing, eh guys?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:31pm nyoukis:

beefheart lands clay on his ass.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:31pm duke:

Beefheart +10
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:31pm Lulu:

I think that Puzzle song was the best one so far.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:32pm paula pc:

Beefheart > Hatchet, sorry Clay!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:32pm George of Troy:

Thanks Fabio, now I don't have to pour bleach in my ears after that Molly Hatchet track.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:32pm Robert:

Still hard to keep track of which was whose, Matt.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:32pm Carmichael:

Nothing's gonna beat Beefheart. Not even Zappa ....
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:32pm DroolingDJs:

fabio +6
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:32pm 12539:

Beefheart + 7
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:32pm Captain B.:

Fabio is The MaN!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:32pm das:

Pulling out all the stops +10
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:32pm mark:

A Beefheart beats the next 3 Clay picks.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:32pm kat330:

Yes, Fabio aimed straight for my heart and nearly hit a bullseye with Mr. Van Vliet. (though Blue Million Miles would have clinched the contest :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:32pm paula pc:

so far I'd say Clay 8, Fabio 14 -- this Beefheart is so hard to beat
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:32pm Caryn:

Only giving this a 3. There are way better Beefheart tracks.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:33pm Robert:

Electricity by 2 over Bounty.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:33pm Matt from Springfield:

+5, not so familiar on Beefheart but this is a real mind-opener. Like where it's heading...
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:33pm Timb:

Strong round... Clay 9 / Fab 8
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:33pm al alex exand ander:

beefhart and hatchet ummm gotta go with fabio on this one agian clay plus 7 fabio 10
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:34pm common:

the banter scores a 10.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:34pm Marmalade Kitty:

Fabio2-1Clay
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:34pm Carmichael:

He played a Danelectro guitar. An original one.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:34pm All the big fat guys:

Hey!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:34pm monte:

i love that beefheart! & yeah, um, molly hatchet? please, no more.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:34pm Matt from Springfield:

@Robert: Don't worry whose songs are whose, points are awarded to the songs you hear. Just ID which song you're rating, and the pointkeeper (wherever we may find him/her) assigns to appro DJ.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:35pm DroolingDJs:

Drooling DJs Unofficial Total: Clay=77, Fabio = 109
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:35pm 12539:

Agreed, Clay is winning on the banter.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:35pm steve:

hey all... just got home, looks like i arrived at the perfect time!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:35pm slugluv1313:

ah i thought that was Molly Hatchet!!!! SURE SIGN that you grew up in the suburban 1970s :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:35pm Matt from Springfield:

There IS NO BONUS system! No bonus for you! You get a fucking Jam-of-the-Month club!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:36pm Timb:

Solution: have each listener tally up their own score and pick a winner at the end.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:36pm kurt v:

GO DUSTY!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:36pm Matt from Springfield:

"Speaker at Clay National Convention accuses Fabio of pandering"...
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:37pm Lulu:

Fabio: The Day Tripper!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:37pm DCE:

pandererererering?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Where did Clay get this "It starts with an I...Integrity!" from!?! :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:37pm hubba:

The FMU Canon!!!!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:37pm MenfussMike:

I would take Don Van Vliet over Frank Zappa every day of the week
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:37pm kat330:

I decline from any points assessing. We're the winners. [poli-speak has taken me over]
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Citizens United! SuperPACs! HARSH!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:37pm monte:

sorry, how's it work? 10 for buzzcocks, 10 for electricity. nothing for molly hatchet. missed the puzzle track. -1 for whatever that was clay just sang a little ('have you heard about the lonesome loser,). tally that.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:37pm Lulu:

Fabio's handing out vouchers!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:38pm duke:

Fabio wins the music points, but Clay wins the argument points.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:38pm steve:

is the point system explained somewhere?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:38pm kat330:

Burl Ives?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:38pm hubba:

How are we scoring here?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:38pm Cecile:

Okay, Clay, you played Captain Beefheart, right?!?!?!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:38pm Bas, NL:

Loving this! ;D
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:38pm Ike:

No negative points, you hippies!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:38pm Liberty Girl NYC:

They need to get a room
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:38pm DCE:

it is Chuck Woolery!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:39pm Cecile:

I know who this is!
Bert Convy!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:39pm Lulu:

Clay wins 10 points for that song he just sang
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:39pm Liberty Girl NYC:

Please Buzzcocks
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:39pm northguineahills:

As someone who grew up in Jacksonville, FL, I can tell you Molly Hatchet was omnipresent. And yes, I do have a LP.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Wink Martindale! Clay totally wins the conversation part, but that's a given! That's why we're rating their music! ;)
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:39pm dale:

wink did a version of deck of cards
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:39pm Cecile:

I cast 10/10 for the Beefheart whoever played it.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:39pm kat330:

Graphic e.g. of politi-speak: http://tinyurl.com/ctdqetu
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@steve: Whole numbers only, 1 to 10. No negative points.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:40pm hubba:

WTF!!!???? can we deduct points?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:40pm DroolingDJs:

is this Fabio's track?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:40pm glenn:

bleeeeeeeeerccccchhhhhh. this gets minus a million.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:40pm Cecile:

IT WAS BERT CONVY.
I RULE.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:40pm steve:

great... thanks Matt!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:40pm Parq:

Aw man, family obligations call me away. Judges, be robust but just.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: I regret that you find the absolute, honest truth to be offensive...
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:41pm common:

10 for Clay Pigeon!!!! This is fucking great!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:41pm dale:

i like this bloated hippy crap
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:41pm nic:

i can't take it_see you next week
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:41pm glenn:

or 1, since matt is being so "ruly".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Avant-Garde

if we're talking about the Avante Garde
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:42pm Matt from Springfield:

+7, love the arrangements and backing track, deep psych vocals.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:42pm David:

Sounds like Clay's voice on that track --- that's cheating, or a tie?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:42pm Cecile:

I give this a 7/10 for its period whackadooness and Xtian rock vibe.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:42pm dale:

this is tony coulter territory
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:42pm DCE:

8 for Chuck Woolery

2 points for pity
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:42pm Bas, NL:

Really grows on you, this Avant Garde..4 points
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:42pm hubba:

Clay... why? Why man, why? I'd love to kick you down some points, but even with kitsch value, this is just not something that should be rewarded.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:42pm kat330:

Philo's home! In a few he'll be adding his two cents, which might be fun. :)

@Matt: Must see Herman Cain's interview on the Daily Show. And Colbert is so brilliant (or his writers are) it's actually scary.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:43pm monte:

+6 to clay for this one.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:43pm Caryn:

@kat: awesome cartoon!

Hmm, I'll give this a 1. But if this really has Wink, Chuck or Bert in it, I might give a 5. Just because.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:43pm paula pc:

I missed the banter, but I gotta give this sh*t an 8 for the electronics
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:43pm duke:

+5 for Chuck Woolery
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: Or zero, if you don't like.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:43pm kat330:

Philo's still getting undressed, but he thinks this is "one of the best Gong songs ever."
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:44pm Divided alien:

Camembert is the #1 Cheese-rock!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:44pm Matt from Springfield:

@dale: Psych Hiss.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:44pm DCE:

tell that man to get his knickers off!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:44pm hubba:

One of your weaker jams Fab... this may help bolster some reluctant support for Clay...
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:44pm Carmichael:

Fabio, keep up with the music listings god dammit. I can't give a zero to something unless I know what it's called.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:45pm DCE:

10 for gong
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:45pm steve:

wasnt that into the Avant Garde... id give it a 5
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:45pm Cecile:

I give this one a 5/10.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:45pm Caryn:

Aha, it has Chuck in it! Thus, my 1 becomes a 5 automatically!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:46pm Cecile:

not a gong fan.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:46pm DCE:

bang a gong!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Is this Gong? I also give a +7, nice jam, qualitative difference to Clay's but not really better or worse.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:46pm northguineahills:

This is one of the better Gong tracks, +8.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:46pm Carmichael:

I would score it higher just for the reference to Earl Camembert from SCTV news.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:47pm duke:

This is a good followup to the Avant Garde +5 Gong Show
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:47pm paula pc:

9 to Clay
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:47pm kat330:

I think I'll be a household contrarian and go with Clay in these two matchups. I really like Gong's "Oily Way," but not this so much.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:47pm DroolingDJs:

3 points to fab
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:47pm DCE:

also a good reference to a band that hadn't quite been formed yet
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:47pm Lulu:

This song gets 10 points!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:47pm Cecile:

OK, it was Chuck Woolery. Why did you mix me up by mentioning the black motorcycle jacket group, Clay? :(
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:47pm Caryn:

I'm giving Gong a 6. (5 for the song, 1 for the title)
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:48pm steve:

Gong +7... like everything but the vocals
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:48pm kata:

oh shit ! late for the showdown. howdy people !!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:48pm Bas, NL:

Gong... meeeehhh... 2 points
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:48pm nyoukis:

fabs round again a big cheesy 8
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:48pm al alex exand ander:

clay gets 8 for avant garde fabio gets TEN for GONG
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:48pm monte:

yeah, same 6 to this as to clay's track.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:48pm hubba:

Prefer the Gong, but not the route I would've taken, both of you... 3 for Clay, can't knock the guy for appreciating something, and 4 for Fab, he could've dug in deep, but instead he met Clay on the court and scrapped one out... come you two... bring it!!!!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:48pm DCE:

haha, separated emoticon! why does that make me giggle so?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:49pm Philo Gristle:

Love this Gong album, and particularly this track, "FOHAT Digs Holes in Space." Hello, al.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:49pm DCE:

now Clay's getting in the fight! 9 for Crimson
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:49pm Cecile:

OK. 10/10 for Crimson.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:49pm glenn:

crimson gets 10.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Welcome kata! We're only in the first half-hour, so you still have plenty of time!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:49pm Timb:

Who picked what on that last round? I score a tie 5/5 on that one.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:49pm Cecile:

I love the Prog fear guitar. And it sounds like Wire.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:50pm Marmalade Kitty:

+10 Clay
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:50pm DroolingDJs:

Yes, Crimson +9
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:50pm steve:

Red +9
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:50pm 12539:

King Crimson + 8.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:50pm Cecile:

yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:50pm MenfussMike:

i love it when drummers incorporate sheets of metal
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:50pm Matt from Springfield:

+10 for the Crimson! I especially like your choice of Red, thinking outside the box!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:50pm paula pc:

Clay? TEN on the Crimson! you NAILED it
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:51pm DCE:

Bruford kills on this one, yep
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:51pm mark:

I'll say a tie on that last round. Clay's off to another good round with this KC.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:51pm kata:

phew! thanks MFS ! are commenters judges and alotting points ?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:51pm Larks tongue:

70'S Prog. Rules!

PROGed OUT dude, 10 for the KING nice job clay
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:51pm Cecile:

hellyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:52pm kat330:

I'm matching them up 1-for-1 at a time, meaning Fabio will have to pull a great one out next to beat the King.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:52pm Caryn:

While pondering my score, I'll tell you of the hand-made sign my local record store had out on the pavement today, advertising their new wares: "New Testament (the band, not the book)".
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:52pm George of Troy:

Crimson is Clay's pick? He must have an ulterior motive.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:52pm hubba:

Now it is like a DJ relay... or tag... is the Crimson Clay's? Nice volley from the Gong, a little more aggressive... good call.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:52pm DCE:

dirty trick, fading out like that
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:52pm northguineahills:

I dig Crimson, but it's rarely my first choice, +4
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:52pm Matt from Springfield:

DroolingDJs has kind of been the unofficial pointkeeper.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:52pm northguineahills:

I dig Crimson, but it's rarely my first choice, +4
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:53pm beez:

Fabio... is Sabbath up next?
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:54pm kat330:

Fabio, did you see Philo's typo correction? Not FoGhat on the Gong but Fohat.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:54pm Cecile:

Robert Fripp, the stern hard-to-please godfather of math-rock!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:54pm glenn:

vote early, vote often.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:54pm Caryn:

KC gets a 7
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:54pm Marmalade Kitty:

  Thu. 8/30/12 4:54pm hubba:

ummm. zildjian, i think.

here's how you do it Matt: *flick
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:57pm Cecile:

glenn, I'm not a drummer in real life. Sorry!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:57pm paula pc:

7, one for each trumpet
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:57pm DroolingDJs:

kinda growing on me... +7 to fab
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:58pm Cheri Pi:

Secret weapon AC gets it done everytime!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:58pm Cecile:

Scratch that. 4/10. I hate these guys.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:58pm kat330:

Clay wins this round by me.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:58pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cheri Pi: Good tip, although I still might spell out lighter, depends which board I'm on!
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:58pm Philo Gristle:

KC is a bit meh, chunky & knobby: 6. Too bad I missed Buzz and Beef, both pure 10s.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:58pm al alex exand ander:

have to give fabio a 10 on this one too gotta love the sax and piano chords
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:58pm paula pc:

sadly, I have to go -- you are both winners!; no irony intended...
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:58pm Cecile:

yah, gotta agree with kat here.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:58pm Cheri Pi:

Cecile, your air drumming is remarkably improved.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Aphrodite's Child is a good band--7 Trumpets, +7 points.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:59pm Caryn:

Hmm, kinda digging it. "7 Trumpets" gets an 8.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:59pm Daniel:

Cecile, it's against international treaties to hate Vangelis. Your 4 doesn't count.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:59pm hubba:

Clay 7... Fabio 5... namesake alone won't do it... expecting better things from both of you, just make sure you curl the toes on the next lift, otherwise it will look as though you're just phoning it in.
  Thu. 8/30/12 4:59pm ERD:

Totally have to go with Gong and Aphrodite's Child! That Avant Garde was weak and the Crimson is too 'dude'
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:00pm Cecile:

Thanks you, Pi. I am expanding to those drums played by hands and arms now.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:00pm steve:

AC +8
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:00pm Cecile:

the boring people.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:00pm kat330:

Speaking of air musicianship -- did you see the International Air Guitar this year, Caryn?
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:00pm Carmichael:

Wow, Fabio hits it back hard. Another tie??
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:00pm duke:

Aphrodite's Child is not doing it for me. +3 I think Clay gets this round.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@Daniel: Although several people express hatred of Vangelis all the time. Only if the Mary Wing Security Council (MWSC) decides to take action, does it really hold any consequences.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:01pm glenn:

3 for aphrodite's child.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:01pm Caryn:

@kat: no, missed it. But I saw some amateur competitors at my cousin's wedding. ;)
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:01pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: An appropriate response by Fabio, but I think Clay still wins this round.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:01pm hubba:

Really wanted it to be a stake through the heart, but excursions just don't add up... you too Clay...
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:01pm DroolingDJs:

Unofficial Results: Clay=311, Fabio=263. Big round for Clay
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:01pm Timb:

Aphrodite's Child, I'll score a 4. Can't stand up to Red.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:02pm Cecile:

I've hated him honestly since '80.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:02pm kata:

luckily my boss is out of town and we have no work to do, so I am ALL IN !! (when I figure out what the hell is going on.)
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:02pm Matt from Springfield:

Petty bickering! The REAL winner in these DJ Smackdowns! :D
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:02pm kat330:

It's true that Clay wins 'bout every mic duel, so that needs to be factored in the end.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:02pm northguineahills:

7 for Aphrodite's Child, actually dig them more then Crimson. I Know, I'm a heretic.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:02pm Philo Gristle:

Aphrodite's Child was awesome for the moment we had two streams going on at 2 seconds off the neat... lost it when the lyrics kicked in, tho.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:02pm steve:

haha, yeah the bickering is by far the best part!
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:03pm Ike:

+7 for Aphrodite's Child
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:03pm Philo Gristle:

the Beat
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:04pm Cecile:

Clay, he totally cares.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:04pm Matt from Springfield:

@Philo: Cool! What was on your other stream?
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:04pm Outsider muse:

Consult SunRa.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:04pm duke:

They're calling each other republicans. It's getting nasty.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:04pm hubba:

Double or nothing... winner take all next round!!!!
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:05pm kat330:

@Matt: Same stream, just off-sync by a second or so.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Bwwuh oh! Do I sense Missing Persons comin' up?!
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:05pm Carmichael:

I'm averaging points instead of totaling. My gut tells me it's very close.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:05pm Cecile:

2/10 for Missing Persons right out of the box.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:05pm Daniel:

Holy cow, these gentlemen both seem to have intimate knowledge of the pudenda of my iPod.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:05pm Carmichael:

Missing Persons already scores near zero for me. Sorry, Dale & Terry.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:05pm contested:

10 point bias for it being Fabio's show.
Or somekinda weighted factor on the points scored during this part of the show??
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:06pm hubba:

Yeah dude, commentary should come after... I'm already docking you like 20 points Clay.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:06pm kat330:

@Daniel: Not Isaac enough for ya? :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:06pm Fredericks:

I'm late.
How we scoring this baby?
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:06pm MenfussMike:

10 pts for the Bozzio family
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:07pm Carmichael:

Fabio, you could play the Archies and still win this round.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:07pm Cecile:

one for each of Ms. Bozzio's talents.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:07pm Matt from Springfield:

+3, like the song "Destination Unknown", but not a very original choice! Clay, you could have played something besides that one or "What Are Words For"!
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:07pm kat330:

HATE the little girl sound for vocals of ANY band.... Sorry, Clay.

  Thu. 8/30/12 5:08pm Carmichael:

Cecile, HA HA HA!! Cecile Unterberger ....
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:08pm Timb:

A sentimental favorite. 9 points for Clay on this one.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:08pm Cecile:

The Archies are great.
the only way you could lose this is my book is if you played Cat Stevens, Styx or Kansas. Or Dr. Hook.

The 10 for The Normal.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:11pm duke:

Missing Persons +4 Normal +8
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:12pm Dieter:

you can vogue to the Normal a lot better than you can to MP.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:12pm Timb:

7 for the normal. Seems a bit obvious to me, but still a good track.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:12pm efd:

Late to this throwdown party, but I have to give 7 points to Fabio for "Warm Leatherette." ("TVOD" might have bumped it to 9.)
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:12pm Chris from DC:

Agreed NGH, +7
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:12pm MenfussMike:

WARM LEATHERETTE -- YES!!!!!
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:12pm kat330:

@ngh: Yeah, I think I took a rough poll about "little girl" voices on some other list, and you noted you like it. Just a personal pref dingus -- as long as it isn't something more twisted. ;)
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:12pm al alex exand ander:

im given normal a 6
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:12pm hubba:

Yes!!!!!! 10 points!!!!!!! but I can't help but think about the juxtaposition and how that is influencing my point allocation... hmmm? Oh well... Clay - 1, for showing up to the studio with Missing Persons and being okay with it.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:13pm kat330:

Ya, Dieter, I'm dancing in my leotard right now...

  Thu. 8/30/12 5:14pm Cecile:

Zero for Clay.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:14pm Caryn:

Now I suspect Clay is just trying to get a rise out of Cecile...
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:14pm hubba:

Jesus dude.... "I'll have what CLay is having... actually, make that two!"
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:14pm glenn:

i HATE styx - but i'm gonna give this a 7.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:14pm Carmichael:

OK, here is your prime example of an absolute zero song. Clay, are you trying to melt the transmitter?
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:14pm MenfussMike:

dennis de young is playing at the west memphis greyhound dog track this month
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:14pm Dale from North Dakota:

Clay, you should have played "Jennifer" from Crystal Ball instead -- that's a creepier Styx song about a girl.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:14pm George of Troy:

Bloody hell, looks like I'll need that bleach for my ears after all.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm kat330:

Awww, Clay..... :\ Fabio's ahead in this set for me. [similarly, I don't like guys with little girl voices. ]
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm octy:

A total rural Iowa fave, 10 points for "Lorelei".
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm efd:

There are Styx songs for which I'd give points. This is not one of them.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm DroolingDJs:

styx = 0 pts
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm Matt from Springfield:

+5, the music and backing track is pretty good, the lyrics not so much, kind of cliche.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm 12539:

Styx +4 out of teenage nostalgia.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm Bas, NL:

Auch.. Styx.. Sorry, abstaining.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm MenfussMike:

i think its lorelei
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm Daniel:

+10 for Normal/Styx segue. The abyss between the two dj's wins.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm Caryn:

See, if you'd played "Lady", it would've been a 10, but this only gets a 7.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm Ike:

I had a roommate with an incontinent cat named Styx. His meow sounded like the moans of a dying frog. But that was more appealing to the ear than this song.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm Robert:

Is the 2nd entry in each round to be judged as a "response" to the 1st? Because Warm Leartherette was excellent in that regard, a +10 for Fabio.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm Philo Gristle:

Earplugs, thanks! NOUGHT
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm hubba:

Hang on... <cutting sleeves off my office shirt>... there we go... 3 for Styx (lame, but better than Missing Persons)
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:15pm steve:

styx +4. meh
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:16pm Matt from Springfield:

@MenfussMike: LOL! You serious?
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:16pm MenfussMike:

i'd give this a "Stix"
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:16pm Carmichael:

"A little Styx comin' atcha, on a good-lookin' Thursday. Don't forget the instant cash call for 107.9 dollars comin' up, and two tickets to Loverboy at the local Indian Reservation, right after THIS!!"
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:17pm Cecile:

right on, Daniel.

OKAY, 9/10 for this.

  Thu. 8/30/12 5:18pm octy:

And 10 more points for "Ghost Rider", the Styx/Suicide segue actually speaks to me.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:18pm al alex exand ander:

styx gets a 5 ghost rider +8
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:18pm monte:

just listened to laibach's version of warm leatherette this afternoon -- 8 points for normal, zero for missing persons. likewise, nothing for styx, 9 pts for suicide.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:18pm steve:

Ghost Rider +9
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:18pm kat330:

At this point, exactly how it tipped for Clay in the Avant Garde set start is exactly reversed for Fabio in this Missing Persons set start.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:18pm Carmichael:

Fabio gets 10 points just for fading out Styx.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:18pm MenfussMike:

Saw suicide open for The Stooges at the Hammersmith a coupla years ago. Was disappointed, so I only give this a 3
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:19pm Matt from Springfield:

A 60s garage song by way of post punk! +8 points!

  Thu. 8/30/12 5:20pm DroolingDJs:

Drooling DJs... Clay=448, Fabio=517
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:20pm Caryn:

Seriously, this round is bad song choices for bands I could give a 10 to... Suicide only gets a 2.

That's what? +50
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:20pm Philo Gristle:

Suicide disappointed after the first album IMO, though Alan Vega had a coupla good solo LPs.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:20pm northguineahills:

Styx gets +3
Suicide + 6
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:21pm kat330:

Clay YOU won the previous set IMO!
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:21pm Marmalade Kitty:

Fabio has the show advantage, so will clay get +10 handicap ?
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, heavy point total already, DroolingDJs!
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:21pm Ike:

Don't like Suicide's lazy vocals, but the music is very powerful and sharp, so +7. Styx obviously 0. Missing Persons +2, also bad vocals with decent music.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:22pm kat330:

@MK: If you include the mic duel always going to Clay, that evens things out.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:22pm 12539:

CLAY! Who are ya, Florida Governor Jeb Bush/Rick Scott!?!
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:23pm Timb:

Clay, you gotta do better than Styx. C'mon man, step up your game. Play Triumph.

@Matt Nice that Jan Brewer endorsed Obama today.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@Kitty: No handicap, no bonus--because Fabio started out the show with his music, Clay was given the first go, to set the mood and make a new start.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:24pm dale:

i declare the LISTENER the winner here...

  Thu. 8/30/12 5:25pm kat330:

@glenn: That's evened out by the misspelling of the Gong track earlier.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:25pm Cecile:

Fabio, Clay really wants to win.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:25pm Matt from Springfield:

That's right, rest of your lives!

  Thu. 8/30/12 5:26pm Matt from Springfield:

@Popularity: Don't judge people, judge their selections. That's why you can't just bank for a particular person--rate their songs, and those points go to the DJs.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:26pm glenn:

Public Enemy +10
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Public Enemy! "Fight The Power"! Fits in with Occupy, but also unusual choice for Clay! That, and I like old school rap much more than the present day stuff. +8 points!

Nice way to change direction, Clay. I would have preferred "Shut Em Down" though. That's the jam. I'll score after I hear what Fab puts up next.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:31pm Marmalade Kitty:

P.E +10
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:31pm Matt from Springfield:

@al: 10 maxes out the points for one song, but I agree with you, more points for cassette!
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:31pm Carmichael:

I'm remembering each of your votes for future attitude. And also, Carmichael is an anagram of Curmudgeon.

Caryn hit it straight up.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:32pm mark vt:

Or wait. Is this where you need to vote for each song? Make mine a vote for everything Fabio plays. Before he even plays it. Stuff Clay plays is sometimes of quality but it is popular quality. Fabio knows better quality.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Awesome, Bas!! That's great!

Fabio, you nailed it with Muddy's electric phase. Funkier than PE. 6 points, sir.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:33pm Daniel:

Another great segue. The yawning abyss gets 10. I think that puts the abyss at 403, DJ's at 189 all in.

Melvin's funky indeed, but this is a momentum slower. 7 points to Fabio.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:42pm Caryn:

Melvin is indeed funky, but the track doesn't seem to go anywhere. It's a 7 to tie.

yup, I was right.

Cecile and Matt, I just have a humble promo 7" with "Livin' In The Life" on both sides.

It involves heavy audience participation, kat. We're too busy thinking of points and typing battle-related ratings to think of stupid crap, as per usual! :)

Those 70s albums sold millions, but they never get sold and when they do, they are trashed.

I know Clay likes them, having followed Slipknot from their beginnings in Iowa, but I don't know anyone over 15 years old who could give them points...

Clay, I was rooting for you, but Slipknot? Oy. Sorry, a 0 from the Finnish judge. Nul points.

I know Slipknot because on pre-Internet radio I had this "active rock" station that would play Highway to Hell and Crazy Train twice a day, and I liked that.
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:58pm Caryn:

@kat: we "knew" it was Slipknot because Clay said it was. Lord knows I couldn't tell that apart from about 3000 other crap bands...
  Thu. 8/30/12 5:58pm northguineahills:

I didn't know it was Slipknot until Clay said so and the playlist confirmed. I don't think I've knowingly heard them.

Although I'm OD'ing on Television lately, I give a 6 for the breath of fresh air and reason.

This song would do better as an instrumental.... +5 clay
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:17pm glenn:

meh. chicago. 3.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:17pm Caryn:

@Matt: yes indeed. Or when washing my face in the morning. Basically, it's a go-to song for me. Love the lyrics.
@Philo: love the Laughner version. Also quite partial to the Venus in Furs version, mainly because Bernard Butler and Jonny Greenwood kill the guitar parts.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:17pm Juggs Musselman:

This is over the limit. This has to stop.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:17pm kata:

would be a cool contest if you could do it by year: Fab's 1973 against Clay's 1973 pick.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:17pm kat330:

I'm ambivalent on this, so I have to give it a 5.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:17pm steve:

+5 chicago
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: When someone mentioned playing Meatloaf, because he had a meatloaf sandwich for lunch, I said only if they play Bread before and after!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:18pm hubba:

Clay, how do you have a radio show on WFMU? You'd be like, the Wolfman Jack of a Northwestern rural AM station...
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:18pm Cecile:

Yeah, steve. Pete Rose.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:18pm Night Al:

Thank goodness the RNC is leaving tonight!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:18pm duke:

Chicago + 2 the band not the city or the Cubs
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:18pm Matt from Springfield:

+6, not their best but they still have their great brass, arrangements and harmonies at this point.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:18pm PJ:

My first vote: Chicago gets 10 points, just because this was the first album I ever owned (and I won it from the radio station!)
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:18pm Philo Gristle:

Clay, three times as good as Slipknot, but not quite as good as Bread! 3
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:19pm George of Troy:

Ugh. Chicago, what a nightmare. +1 for it not being Styx.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:19pm Cecile:

Or the Chinese badminton Olympic team.
Clay is pulling a Chinese badminton Olympic team.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:19pm northguineahills:

Chicago +2ish... alright, +3
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:19pm kata:

good memory @kat330 -- the answer is no, Bread's bread just ain't crusty enough !
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:19pm Matt from Springfield:

@kata: Good idea! Year-to-year chart battle!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:19pm dinatekno:

Brian Eno, then Chicago....it's like you guys have tapped into the radio station in my mind!! I LOVE THIS!!!! You have to do this every week!!!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:19pm Curt:

The Chicago is picking up steam +7
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:19pm duke:

@Matt Bread Meatloaf Bread - a sandwich triple play on all 70's WFMU
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:20pm Cecile:

a big fat 9 for Fabs.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:20pm 12539:

I second Kata's by-the-year suggestion (for the Autumn Duel).
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:20pm Caryn:

Chicago gets a 3. Song choice a definite problem. (I could go so much higher for other Chicago tracks, Clay!)
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:21pm kata:

Chicago was a snooze: 0 points !
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:21pm steve:

thats it, thanks Cecile
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:21pm Caryn:

  Thu. 8/30/12 6:22pm kata:

whatever came after Chicago was a snooze too: 0 points for Fab !
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:22pm Fredericks:

Chicago +6 w/ bonus

This gospel piece +7 minus bonus
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:22pm Timb:

Chicago 3 / Staple Singers 9. Very soulful.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:22pm Carmichael:

@hubba: HA HA .... I've often wondered the same thing. What's Top 40 from 3 decades ago doing on freeform?
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:22pm Philo Gristle:

Staple Singers, from styx to stones, 8
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:22pm MenfussMike:

  Thu. 8/30/12 6:23pm Carmichael:

This comment is designed to show that this music is not worth commenting on.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:23pm Cecile:

okay, I love this song = 8.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:23pm duke:

Kenny Rogers +8 for a totally maudlin C&W song
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:23pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

I think we are all losing here
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Kenny Rogers was best in the First Edition days. Clay's played this before, but still a well-written song. +7 points
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:23pm Update:

Ruby, you goddam slut!!! I got crippled by an IED, and this is the thanks I get?!?!?!?!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:23pm glenn:

  Thu. 8/30/12 6:24pm Stanley:

Clay - How do you do it? Kenny Rogers' Ruby! Man, that's clever.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:24pm Philo Gristle:

Shouldn't like this, but I kinda do: 7
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:24pm Cecile:

"If I could move I'd get my gun and put her in the ground." BBBBBBBRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:24pm hubba:

Ruby = 7... nice.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:25pm Caryn:

Sheesh, that was boring for the SS... Only a 3, I'm afraid.
Kenny gets a slightly higher 5.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:25pm glenn:

memfuss mike, are you crazy? kenny made the worst chicken ever.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:25pm Philo Gristle:

  Thu. 8/30/12 6:26pm MenfussMike:

glenn....honestly i never ate it.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:26pm kata:

Strong round for both. 10 a piece.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:27pm david:

The Bicycle Duel, I should say.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:27pm hubba:

Fabio, just because it is Twink, a good choice for sure, it doesn't come close to the affect Ruby had... 5 dude, 5 for not taking a chance.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:27pm glenn:

twink. meh. 5.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:28pm dinatekno:

Thank you for the Twink. Sanity is restored. Until Clay plays Terry Jacks.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:29pm Cecile:

well, I have to go.
Congratulations, Fabio on another win.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:29pm MenfussMike:

  Thu. 8/30/12 6:31pm Cecile:

hahahahahahahaha
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:31pm Caryn:

Clay, go for some Richie Havens, like you did at Hoof & Mouth. I'd award plenty of points for that.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:31pm DroolingDJs:

Fabio did a pelvic hip thrust?
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:31pm hubba:

i think, and this is said in the most loving way, both of you have a burnt core... it's cool, no fretting, we are all one bowl away from complete cerebral meltdown.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:31pm kata:

I'm sure Twink must have some songs with the actual life force in them but that one didn't have it
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:31pm Timb:

I'm going to cry when this show ends at 7.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Off-mic conversations count! You can't "VETO VETO VETO" Julie's songs off-mic and then act fair on mic!

Crotch thrust?!!?! LOL!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:31pm Night Al:

I worked a Slipknot show at the Tampa Ampitheater on a hot sweltering night a few years back. I was sweating my ass off and these guys were wearing leather S & M mask while jumping around. They had to be dripping sweat so bad.

Clay Banter +9

Sins A Good Mans Brother
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:32pm efd:

@Ike, try to think of it as the apostrophe that should be after "Livin." The playlist still has the correct number of apostrophes, they're just roaming around a bit.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:32pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: "Seasons in the Sun" -- Fabio would love the Jacques Brel aspect of that one.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:33pm hubba:

Duh, it is on Greatest Hits, the greatest Chicago album EVER!!!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:33pm Night Al:

Elton's bass player just blew his brains out also.

Still gratin' on OCD Ike! ;)
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:34pm hubba:

oooo...oooo... Clay, 10 points if you do Grand Funk accapella.... +5 if you can get Fabio to join in.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Both deep into "aarp" mail!

George goebell
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:37pm northguineahills:

I have to admit, "Would" shook me out of my teenage malaise and started me on my musical journey. I bought the Singles sndtrk just for this track, and the rest is history.

Clay gets a +8 for Alice in Chains.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Bias again, but I used to be into Alice In Chains, besides the "yarling" which I never liked, there's many aspects of them I still do. +5
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:37pm Timb:

Hahaha guilty pleasure. +10 Clay for AIC.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:37pm Greg from VA:

Ok, my mother who is 88, really likes most of Dusty's play selection, (outside Slipknot) while my son who is 19 is really into everything Fabio is playing, while I, at age 60, am 70% with Fabio and 30% with Dusty. What this means, I have no idea, but my family is Rock and Roll, the excellent, the good, the bad and the ugly, not to mention everything in between. Actually, we all actually hated Slipknot, which means, well, absolutely nothing I imagine. Great show, yep . . . indeed!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:38pm kata:

I can't even like this in jest. 0 points ! no value. sorry Pidge.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:38pm hubba:

What is Station Manager Ken going to say about this!!?? Hmm?

5 for making me think of long-haired Matt Dillon in Singles.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:38pm PJ:

This Alice in Chains song is terrible (particularly the chorus), but I give it 2 points for sort of an interesting atmosphere. Cymbals sound horrible.

Clay can't catch Fabio now, but he continues to hurt him with Alice in chains
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:39pm Dan:

George Kirby is the guy with the flat top. Really dry humor
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:39pm david:

"Them Bones" would have been a more competitive entry, if Clay wanted to throw down the gauntlet...
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:39pm Dan:

George Kirby is the guy with the flat top. Really dry humor

  Thu. 8/30/12 6:43pm kat330:

@dinatekno: Loved George Gobel. In certain photos, strong resemblance between him and Dylan, oddly enough.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Yes, Tendrix!

You know, if Fabio had played "Memphis Psychosis" here, rather than earlier on in his show, he'd get more points. As it is, I'm getting bored, and giving it a 1.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Never heard "Rock and Roll Station" before, without any context for this performance piece, I give it +5.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:50pm steve:

this is a great way to end... +10 fabio
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:51pm PJ:

Should the funding appear, I think FMU should start an AM station with Clay as program director.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:51pm kata:

snoozeville Fabio !
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:51pm Matt from Springfield:

@Kitty: Comin' straight from the underground!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:51pm northguineahills:

Considering I like boring +5
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:51pm Timb:

I'll give Fabio's ambient piece a +5
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:51pm hubba:

That bicycle song is on the Parrallels album by Jacque Berrocal, but i don't think that version was it....
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:52pm DroolingDJs:

TOTALS: Clay=1175, Fabio=1381
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:52pm kat330:

@Ray L: I enjoy Maher myself. Guess the difference is a witless prick in a suit as opposed to someone quick-witted.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:53pm kata:

last I checked Bill Maher was a neocon. Did he change again ? maybe I'm confusing him with that SNL guy who tried to have a politically themed show. what was his name ?
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:53pm hubba:

I hope this song is called "cheesesteaks."
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:53pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

OK, Clay + 250
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:54pm PJ:

+2 for hair metal
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:54pm david:

@PJ, good idea. Weather on the 2s, traffic on the 3s...
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:54pm Timb:

Before Brittany Foxx I have Clay 91 vs Fab 98 for my personal tally.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@PJ: That's what I've been saying! Should FMU acquire an AM station, they should have a WFMU-AM -- a FMU twist on traditional AM talk/news/sports, kind of "parody" of the other drivetime stations! Plus online streaming for international fans.

Clay P can go TOTAL morning zoo! Bronwyn could host a full length "Sportsy Talk" show!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:54pm Caryn:

@kata: I think you're thinking Dennis Miller? Either way, pricks in suits. But rather quick-witted ones.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:54pm northguineahills:

@kata: Dennis Miller
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:54pm Night Al:

ISAAC = Instigating Storm Advancing Against Conventioners
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:54pm kat330:

@kata: You're thinking of Dennis Miller I believe. Maher's always been a sharp-witted liberal AFAIK.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:54pm kata:

No I don't want the contest to end !
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:54pm Ray L:

Colin Quinn?
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:54pm PJ:

I've changed my mind, this is a 0.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:54pm Andrew Waterloo:

@kata, you're probably confusing Maher with Dennis Miller.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:55pm Matt from Springfield:

+6, Clay first turned me on to Britny Fox, and though they are a hair band, they really give it their all.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:55pm david:

ISAAC = I Sought Angsty Anarchist Chanters
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:55pm Night Al:

I told you guys weeks ago I secretly was wishing for a hurricane to hit the RNC.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:55pm blee:

I'm going with Fabio as the winner for not playing nu metal or freedom rock. Clay, this is self destructive behavior. Do you want to talk about what's been bothering you?
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:55pm efd:

Maybe it's the NJ Transit ambience but I'm giving Clay 9 points for Britny Fox.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:55pm kat330:

I always get my unison chime-in showing up last! OK, well, I'm trying to eat dinner and type at the same time...
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:55pm DroolingDJs:

clay +8 for variety
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:55pm efd:

Maybe it's the NJ Transit ambience but I'm giving Clay 9 points for Britny Fox.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:56pm Fredericks:

Britny Fox +2 Guitar's okay but is sounds like Boston.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:56pm Close Listener:

Clay needs to understand that the clichés that comfort some simply bore others.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:56pm Ray L:

Dennis Miller -- hoo boy. Tried to watch his last HBO thing -- man, the guy stinks -- stinks bad. Did he get kicked in the head by a horse at some point?
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:56pm kat330:

Let's end on a track you BOTH love and agree on!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:56pm Matt from Springfield:

All right, show coming to a close...what IS our final tally??
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:56pm Caryn:

Are we still supposed to give scores, or did it end with Jac Berrocal? If we're still scoring, that got a 2.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:57pm hubba:

No Sabbath!? Clay wins!!!!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:57pm kata:

thanks everyone, you're right. Anyways, they;re both turds.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:57pm Philo Gristle:

Great show, fellas! Britny +3 (not awful) and whatever this is... 6
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:57pm Ray L:

I think we're going to have to call this a tie -- and schedule a tie-breaker same time next week.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:58pm kat330:

Oh, guess that was the Fox.... or Strings.....
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:58pm Matt from Springfield:

@Night Al: I remember!

Since Fabio is way ahead anyway with 2 minutes left to go, I'll just say that this is a cool song!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:58pm kat330:

No RUSH, Clay wins!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:58pm DroolingDJs:

Current TOTALS: Clay=1218, Fabio=1397
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:58pm dinatekno:

YUK on the Britney Fox. Loving the Flame out - but then, I'm a burn out - LOL!!!!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:58pm Philo Gristle:

I'm with Ray. Tie, and break it next week!!!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:58pm 12539:

101 Strings +5
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:58pm Timb:

I've scored a tie.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:58pm Caryn:

@Ray L: heh! Still, comedy-wise, I still rank him above Norm Macdonald. Man, he stinks...
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:58pm Montessori School:

Winner? No winner! We're all failures just for competing :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:59pm kata:

Clay and Fab, you guys are NOT turds.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:59pm Fredericks:

101 Strings +3
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:59pm northguineahills:

101 Strings, lol! + 7 for Britny Fox
+ 4 for 101 Strings.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:59pm 12539:

Next time, year by year!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:59pm kat330:

Thank you both for a ton of fun!!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:59pm Timb:

Final round: Clay 8 / Fab 6
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:59pm hubba:

Thanks dudes!!! You both rule the school!!!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:59pm Caryn:

"Flame Out" kinda boring, so if we're still scoring, a 1.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Another fun DJ Duel! Let's do it again!
Thanks Fabio! Thanks Clay!

Have a good night everyone! Hope you had as much fun as I did! Always Remember!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:59pm blee:

Flame out: 10 points of awesome!
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:01pm Caryn:

There should be a "DJ War" show on the schedule weekly!
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:06pm Marmalade Kitty:
