Good morning Ken, listeners, commenters, animated gifs, radio waves!
Avatar Wed. 9/26/12 9:11am Ken:

Pierre, I dont know but I like a few of the tracks a lot.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:13am pierre:

Ken, saw, didn't buy it, maybe i will. Pretty sure it's going to have other airplays on European schedule.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:14am dcp@:

Ah, cool Cecile was just talking about this cover the other day and somehow I never heard it.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:14am Dave B:

Guten morgen
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:14am common:

great cover!
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:14am dcp@:

..and the dancing chick is in PERFECT timing with the tune. Nice.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:15am patradio:

scrawl! :-)
Avatar Wed. 9/26/12 9:16am Ken:

Yes, it's a request, just one week late...
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:16am dcp@:

..yet this doesn't seem like a coverable tune, like Mother by Lennon. Sounds good though.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:16am rob t.:

+1 Scrawl! Now I have to try their later stuff.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:16am dcp@:

yeah, Stranglers!
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:18am rob t.:

This is a scary scary cover. I think it could have driven the Devil out of Linda Blair in no time flat.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:18am Bad Ronald:

The Stranglers and Bacharach, lovely combo!
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:19am rob t.:

And at the same time, my Twitter feed has 666 back messages. Weird.

great set! wish i didn't have to go to work :(
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:19am f●f● (:

A cat on the animated gif column?! On this show!? Ken, are you alright? Is this a coming-of- age sort of thing?
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:20am dcp@:

this is a fantastic cover.
Avatar Wed. 9/26/12 9:20am Ken:

A cat? I dont see no cat.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:22am rob t.:

Anyone who covers Spirit In The Sky has guts.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:22am Caryn:

@Ken: Limiñanas gif, Karloff is holding a black cat.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:22am Tweety:

That aint no cat.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:23am Uke Goldberg:

Play the Damned. they did some pretty demented covers.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:23am rob t.:

Oh, it's Shatner. That explains everything.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:23am Vivian:

Morning Everyone!
Ken, how is Dr. Bootygrabber? Getting along with Rooster and Olive, I hope?
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:24am Mark:

that cat looks just like my cat, Pepper
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:24am bbell:

sounds like Bill was trying to sound like Johnny Cash.
Avatar Wed. 9/26/12 9:24am Ken:

If by "getting along" you mean treating them like his bitches, then YEAH, Dr Bootygrabber and Rooster and Olive all get along GREAT!
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:25am Daryl & John:

sounds like bill was half way through a bottle of jack
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:25am f●f● (:

Ken. You can clearly see a reflection of a cat in the Coffee cup gif. Don't pretend you don't this cute creature. Aww..look at it.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:27am Fredericks:

Sonic's Rendezvous! Lovely.
Avatar Wed. 9/26/12 9:27am Ken:

Y'all are punkin me
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:28am Daryl & John:

i see the cat. it's pretty obvious
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:28am Vivian:

@ Ken, that is how cats roll with dogs. Same situation at my house!
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:28am Mark:

Yeah' I'm actually Ashton Kutcher
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:29am f●f● (:

If Rooster and Olive know how to say "cheese"...they are in real trouble.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:30am Andrew Waterloo:

I don't feel completely unimpressed by the cup of coffee, therefore there must be no cat.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:31am pierre:

YEAH GERMAN LANGUAGE !
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:34am m:

A Grauzone cover was one of five things I was least expecting to hear.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:36am Dave E.:

Kid Koala - horay!
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:36am f●f● (:

I agree pierre. I never finished learning it thou. But, oh boy, how much I like to say "Messer Fur frau Muller" with a thick german accent. I feel important.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:37am Dan B From Upstate:

Aw, man... Is the world ending again today?
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:37am Kaporos:

Dead chickens rool!
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:38am Dave B:

Yum! Kippers!
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:38am Kaporos:

I don't know "a tone" meant.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:40am 108365:

"We should ATONE when we hear A TONE, and be AT ONE with ATON." Rev. Farakhan at Million Man March, possibly misheard
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:41am G:

Alva??? Dude was a freakin girl!
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:41am f●f● (:

In the Network pro-capitalist speech the guy uses the ATONE word.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:42am pierre:

I like to say : MUSKATNUSS !!!
very loud.

which translate by Nutmeg.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:44am Caryn:

@108365: yeah, Farakhan channeling Akhenaten :)
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:46am Daryl & John:

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Today is the Day of Atonalment
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:47am dcp@:

this Allophons tune is....intriguing...
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:47am pierre:

Why is Mitt Romney playing jenga ?
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:48am Mark:

an amusing video aptly described as "A video tribute to the unspeakable, soul-crushing awkwardness and general vapidity of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney."

http://tinyurl.com/8frzzy2
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:48am rob t.:

When I listen to the Allophons, I get the idea that Mitt opened the window during a stratospheric space jam.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:51am Caryn:

Okay, when a chameleon balancing awkwardly on its hind legs is more graceful than you, you have a problem. You hear me, Mitt?
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:52am Willard:

I'm still practicing my Reagan impression in hotel room mirrors. I think it's missing something...
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:55am f●f● (:

I reckon that's another game pierre. I don't remember its name but it goes something like this: The blue ball at the backgound represents planet Earth, the US flag represents the nationality of the player which has the goal of destroying the tower which represents achievements of modern civilisation that lives in the blue ball.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:56am Mark:

I like bacon!
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:57am Barry:

Is someone implying I am chameleonic?
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:57am Dave B:

@Caryn - Mitt has chromatophores which allow him to quickly change color when appearing on Univision, but he lacks the prehensile tail.

And the googly eyes.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:58am dcp@:

I prefer beacon.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:59am Jack:

Andre Williams? But Andy Williams just died!
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:59am dcp@:

uh. just saw a post from R. Stevie Moore that ANDY Williams kicked the bucket.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:59am f●f● (:

And I never quite liked Kevin Bacon.
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:59am Kyra Sedgwick:

@ DCP@ - me too. Morning, noon and night.

Hot and greasy
  Wed. 9/26/12 9:59am Sam:

What's with these Brooklyn hipster places putting bacon in EVERYTHING? Bacon is so totally nasty.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:00am BSI:

Bacon & cookin' require different skill-sets, as well. It's like an art-vs-science thing. Maybe?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:01am Jack:

re: bacon and Andy Williams: can you play "Moon Ribber"?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:01am Mark:

I had a bacon sandwich for breakfast
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:02am Stina:

Anyone else getting hungry?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:02am f●f● (:

Ken't believe I am listening to a full bacon set.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:02am Sam:

Nelson Muntz is a huge Andy Williams fan.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:03am The GB Kid:

Not feelin' the bacon right now.. but I am REALLY HUNGRY for a big sausage pizza
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:03am rob t.:

I must say that this is a positively evil Yom Kippur set.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:03am Bill:

It's one thing to talk about FOOD today, but bacon?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:03am Homer:

mmm...bacon!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:04am BSI:

not craving bacon.
but that COFFEE image up there has given me an itch I must scratch...
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:04am taahomaroma:

The world's highest quality smoking experience is bacon wrapped cigars from bruges... a dreamy stink like a sumptuous dinner in bed with judas priest groupees
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:04am Sam:

Yom Comma Kippur Zero
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:04am Bacon:

Six Degrees of Lipidation
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:05am Dave E.:

I hear Andy Williams has his own brand of bacon.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:05am jan:

great sounds and great visuals today!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:05am Sam:

I guess if you're fasting today it's not cruel for people to talk incessantly about food that you would never eat anyway.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:05am dcp@:

I think mrs. dcp@ drank the last of the coffee...do we have any coffee pills around here?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:06am Francis Bacon:

Am I related to Kevin?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:06am Uke Goldberg:

Bacon, almost as good as sucking the blood from a newly circumcised penis.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:06am Caryn:

The main reason I'd like to visit Portland one day is the bacon & maple syrup donuts.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:06am Dave E.:

Butt Bacon?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:06am Shmuly Traif:

I only touch bacon blessed by the grand rebbi.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:06am common:

this is one of the greatest sets i've ever heard.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:06am Sam:

Dr. Tuchusgrabber?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:06am Vincent Vega:

Yeah, but bacon tastes good. Pork chops taste good.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:07am The Little Ones:

Yum yum, pig's bum!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:07am Mark:

It is a tossup Uke
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:08am Caryn:

Butt grabbing to butt stabbing... man, that's an unfortunate development. It wasn't a crazed doctor doing the stabbing, was it?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:08am m:

A dingo stole my butt-baby :(
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:08am Dave E.:

Serial Butt Stabbers on Crack!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:09am Butt Crack:

Leave me outta this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:09am Dr. Bootygrabber:

Why don't you bend over and say "bacon".
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:09am Sam:

Hey, if you're gonna be stabbed, the tuchus is your best bet, especially if you've got some junk there to protect you.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:09am Daryl & John:

TONE LOC (loves Hall & Oates!)
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:10am dcp@:

ah...she saved a small cup for me....
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:11am Lewis:

ohhhh now I get it - here in the flyovers the day of atonement passes with little notice. I do need to track down some pork belly this afternoon....
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:11am Caryn:

@Sam: true, a very fleshy body part with no vital organs. Maybe the stabbings are being done by someone who needs to satisfy their bloodthirst, but doesn't really want to seriously injure people?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:12am Sam:

Yes Caryn, that's exactly why I did it. I mean, why he or she did it. Shit, is it too late to delete this comment??
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:13am Endorsement:

I always wonder about SSD, and it is definitely in its Golden Years
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:14am Caryn:

Heh, Sam! Gotta say, I think "Dexter" would be a more boring show, if the main character didn't need to kill, but could get by just stabbing an occasional ass.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:15am Jack:

Ken, you could have a SSD all about bacon...
People could call in with bacon stories, etc.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:16am still b/p:

We got us a bacon-chedddar doughnut -- and it's a potato doughnut -- here in the other Portland. I fear it.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:16am Caryn:

A "raw bacon eating contest" episode of SSD?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:17am Caryn:

@sb/p: hang on, which Portland do you think I'm talking about, and which are you talking about? Maybe there's even a third one...
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:18am Sam:

Ken's gotten drunk on the show, gotten stoned, done bath salts, but never eaten raw bacon. I think that's the one that would finally kill him.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:19am f●f● (:

Coming to your high-street this very near future:

"Channel No. B -pour la femme de bacon"
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:19am Michelle in Green Bay:

Wow...first time I've been able to listen in ages, and people are talking about bacon. It's a sign. :-)
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:20am still b/p:

Me and the bacon cheddar sinker are in Maine.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:20am f●f● (:

Bay! Michelle in Green Yay!! Ops! I mean Yay! Michelle in, etc.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:21am Caryn:

And yep, the bacon & syrup one is in Oregon. So, that went right.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:21am Lewis:

in Switzerland i had raw speck and it is wonderful. Speck is bacon by another name and cured longer. Slice thin and enjoy.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:21am Michelle in Green Bay:

You thank welcome for the! ;-)
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:22am dcp@:

Borrrrris Becker! love this tune.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:22am The GB Kid:

Can we get a list of things to NOT DO during menstruation?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:22am f●f● (:

It's an honour to have you here, Michelle in GB. Glad you are back!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:22am Caryn:

Dammit, I've never had a picnic during my periods! Or skated, square danced or ridden a horse, moderately or otherwise. Should I go to the doctor now?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:23am Michelle in Green Bay:

Aww...I'm blushing!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:23am Dan B From Upstate:

What is a fast game that menstruating girls are known to play?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:25am Caryn:

@Dan B: a foot race to see who gets to the WC before they bleed all over their clothes?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:26am Mark:

no mention of sex during menstruation?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:26am dcp@:

There's no "Do A Lot" column..
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:27am dcp@:

Human Car by Ex would be perfect after this...note for the future...
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:28am still b/p:

Cramptown Races.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:29am Caryn:

@Mark: considering the sign seems to be from the 50s or earlier, sex was never going to be mentioned.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:30am Cecile:

Hi all! Working from the manse today!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:30am Cecile:

Hi all! Working from the manse today!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:31am Cecile:

And iPod is goofy...
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:32am Mark:

poor Carol
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:32am Caryn:

If groove and bell bottoms lead to syphilis, no wonder the 70s were an STD heyday.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:33am Cecile:

Well that and a lot of hash and Riunite.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:35am dcp@:

I had long hair and bell bottoms and dug now sounds and I never got syphilis. WTF?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:36am Syphilis Defense League:

We are still fighting mindless prejudice, I see.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:36am Caryn:

I think what that ad is trying to say in a roundabout way is:
"Carol has
lots of unprotected sex,
is constantly high,
has questionable hygiene,
and has syphilis."
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:37am f●f● (:

Dan B From Upstate, don't you walk away without uncovering us the truth behind dysmenorrhoea.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:37am Cecile:

dcp, did you actually have sex? :)
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:38am Mark:

but Carol digs the now sounds!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:39am f●f● (:

if Carol digs Psy sounds, wears ganman style bottoms, well, yeah, she kind of deserves it.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:40am Cecile:

Ken, Chris, the mister, loves this.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:40am Psy:

Dress classy, dance trashy
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:41am dcp@:

Cecile: wha?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:41am Dave B:

@f●f● (:

then Carol would have PSY-phillis
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:41am Lady GaGa:

@Psy: Ok, so I'm batting .500
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:41am Cecile:

I am a subject matter expert on the dys- thing. Is she doing too much blow and not eating? That'll do it.

Ken I was thinking about you when this came on yesterday.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:44am Ton Loc:

Funky cold Medina!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:46am slugluv1313:

i remember those ads from when i was a kid! basically saying that anyone can get syphilis -- even if you are "hip" and "groovy" . . . the term "unprotected sex" did not even exist back then . . .
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:48am W in NJ:

It's pronounced "Shore Patrol".
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:48am dcp@:

'cile: I know just playing along.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:48am slugluv1313:

BARRA BARRA makes for an excellent SWORD DANCE too
great to hear this first thing upon tuning in -- thanks, Ken!!!!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:50am dcp@:

Yeah, liking the show today a lot, even outside all the witty banter.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:50am Mark:

what about ROCTOBER!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:50am jan:

Yes- Ken, I agree with you about that movie. In my mind you remain the master. Where are the naked girls gathered around your performance?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:51am Caryn:

Ken, I'd like to sincerely thank you for not saying "rocktober". Seriously.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:51am Sam:

Ken, why do you keep mispronouncing Rocktober? You're leaving off the R!! What are ya, from Bahston?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:51am Daryl & John:

are you sure it is not ROCKtober???
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:51am Cecile:

Slug, ditties like "VD is for everybody".
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:52am patradio:

thanks for the Television. Love this record.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:52am Mark:

Hey the Record Fair is right before election day this year
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:53am Old moe D:

Neil's still got it...
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:54am Sam:

We're all ready to rock out here! Just waiting for your signal, great leader!
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:54am Andrew Waterloo:

I wish it was shocktober, actually kinda miss the local cable station having horror movie marathons.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:54am f●f● (:

That tornado looks like a Rapture to Hell.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:55am dcp@:

that picture of the fire tornado is real. Odd phenomenon which can happen in extremely hot conditions. forget what it's called though...
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:55am dcp@:

everything that's good about a tornado AND it's on fire.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:56am Guessing:

@dcp: a "fire tornado"?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:56am f●f● (:

It's called Miracle. It's like magnets. Science cannot explain.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:56am Caryn:

Maybe WFMU will have Spocktober. Plenty of airplay for Shatner and Nimoy's records.
Or Kelly LeBrocktober. Constant airplay for the "Weird Science" soundtrack.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:57am Obviously...:

Krampustober
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:57am dcp@:

I thought there was another term for it...guess it's just fire tornado.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:57am Caryn:

@dcp@: it's a fire whirl. Hence: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_whirl
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:58am Cecile:

Crocktober.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:58am dcp@:

Yeah that's it...but how is that better than fire tornado??
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:58am rob t.:

Everybody needs to be John Lee Hooker once in their lives.
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:59am Good Ol Boy:

Nicer gals than China Grove?
  Wed. 9/26/12 10:59am Caryn:

@dcp@: I think the "fire devil" term is the coolest. Of course, reading about the gigantic one that killed 38,000 people is kinda freaky.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:00am hamburger:

Give a Foctober!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:01am Daryl & John:

poor andy williams. now is worm food.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:01am f●f● (:

Cat-tober people!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:02am Sam:

Fire devil is a good term, it's like a dust devil, but with fire!! Yeah heh heh heh!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:02am Brian C.:

Cue up the gif of the metalheads fanning the flames with their hair…
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:02am dcp@:

Rob t: Zz top ain't no John Lee. But I always thought that song was pretty weird to be played on mainstream radio.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:02am Dave B:

Woktober!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:03am f●f● (:

psytober?
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:03am dcp@:

socktober...time to put the socks back on...
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:04am Andrew Waterloo:

SIGHtober
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:05am Caryn:

Surgical-smocktober: all Dr. Bootygrabber, all the time.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:06am dcp@:

GOTOBED!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:07am Cecile:

Ken, d'you have Caught out there by Kelis. Best chorus in a song ever...
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:07am rob t.:

The original "Slave 4 U" is way weirder. Nuff respect to Timbaland!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:08am Cecile:

Rob t, must agree!!!!!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:08am f●f● (:

Don't forget Octotober. October needs its own celebration.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:09am still b/p:

Glocktober.
"Confidence to Live Your Life."
"We hope you never need it, but if you do, a GLOCK is very discouraging to the bad guys."
..and discouraging to bad music!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:10am rob t.:

dcp@: true. but I think everybody should have a chance to say "Haw Haw Haw Haw" and mean every word!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:11am Sam:

Awkwardtober
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:12am dcp@:

rob t: can't argue with that.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:13am Dave B:

Aardvarktober
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:14am rob t.:

Mocktober
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:15am Midnight Oil:

Nice try, NH!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:16am Michelle in Green Bay:

One never hears enough bassoon on the radio. Thanks, Ken, for a valuable public service.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:16am Sam:

Cartoon music is some of the best music around
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:17am Caryn:

Should I be troubled I recognised this as the Mole before the title came up?
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:17am f●f● (:

One never hears enough BACON on the radio. Thanks, Ken, for a valuable public service.

fix'd.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:17am Carmichael:

Hi SM Ken. Happy Tober, everyone. My next band will be called Serial Butt Stabbers.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:18am Mark:

http://tinyurl.com/c6zn6kg
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:18am Sam:

Oh yes you are troubled!!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:19am Sam:

Who the hell recognizes the mole music? You must be strange!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:19am Steven Angelo:

I swear I always hear the most profound, interesting stuff on this station!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:21am Carmichael:

The day something "profound" shows up here, I'm out.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:21am Caryn:

In my defense, I think I recognised it as the Mole because of the number of times Mole music has been played on WFMU. Oh, who am I trying to kid? I'm just weird.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:23am TJ:

Here he comes now, say Moley, Moley!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:24am Caryn:

This was one of the later Mole cartoons, from 1970. The Mole meets a hedgehog in it.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:25am Sam:

It was a landmark in mole-hedgehog relations. Interestingly it came around the same time that Nixon went to China. Coincidence?
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:25am dcp@:

I played this CD for my daughter. I don't think she even noticed it..
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:26am Laura L:

@ Caryn, I'm in profound trouble too--recognized the mole music in a heartbeat. When someone calls me weird, I say Thank you. It's a compliment!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:26am Sam:

Babies like the lamest music.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:27am dcp@:

Yeah, I had to write a bunch of tunes for my babies, like the ever popular: "Let's see what's in the diap. Let's see what's in the diap..." etc....
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:28am seang:

da plane
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:28am The Mole:

I thought I recognized Krtek's "voice"! :)
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:29am Carmichael:

Babies do not yet have a sense of the profound.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:29am f●f● (:

Sam, oh dear, seems you haven't heard Rockaby Baby.

The.heaviest.baby.thing.ever. \m/ \m/
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:30am Sam:

That's true Carmichael. That's a profound insight.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:31am Andrew Waterloo:

Rockaby Baby = postpartum passive-aggression.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:32am Caryn:

In the Nordic countries, there's a buttload of heavy metal aimed at babies and kids.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:32am Sam:

Ok, how can you not rock when you hear this song? No matter what month it is.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:36am Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi...late to the party today. I have this to submit - http://lolpicz.net/funny-graffiti/push-button-receive-bacon/
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:37am lee:

why is there a 'rockabye baby' of coldplay?
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:39am Uke Goldberg:

Because it's "cute."
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:39am PMD:

Hi - actually AT the party today, finally.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:39am Sam:

"You know what ice-climbing shoes can do to a mucus membrane." Ken, that should be the title of today's show.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:39am dcp@:

it's still Rockseptember you know...
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:39am PMD:

@Caryn, where could I find that music for the kids?
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:40am Ike:

Hooray for my boss being too observant to come look over my shoulder and prevent me from commenting today!

Has Dr. Bootygrabber shredded any drapes lately?
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:42am Ike's boss:

What is this... I don't even
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:44am Ike:

Nice try, but checking up on me counts as work. ATONE!!!!!!!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:45am Carmichael:

Deviated Septumber.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:46am Sam:

So he's too observant to be observant of you. How deliciously ironic.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:46am Caryn:

@PMD: the number one band for that right now would be these guys: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hevisaurus but there's also bands like Moottörin Jyrinä and Sauruxet and festivals like Tenavarokki ("Toddler rock"). Not having kids, I'm not hugely familiar with the genre, just see CDs and posters occasionally around.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:47am Sam:

I'm stuck with one of them WASP bosses.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:49am dcp@:

My boss rules. He works about 400 miles away from me.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:49am Caryn:

@PMD: of course, most metalheads apparently introduce their kids to heavy metal via bands like Twisted Sister, Judas Priest, KISS and WASP before moving on to rougher stuff, thus bypassing "made for kids" heavy metal completely.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:49am Carmichael:

Here in the US of A, we have the Sugar Beats. And Coldplay. And Demi Lovato. And occasionally we borrow the Wiggles.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:50am groucho:

listening to your show makes a massive dent on my bank account ken, I've bought 5 records today because of you!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:50am Caryn:

And once again we're reminded of the awesomeness of "They Live".
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:50am Ken From Hyde Park:

Here, it's still Zeptember, where folks celebrate Led Zeppelin all month.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:52am dcp@:

my brain really has trouble dealing with the non-minor key of this version.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:52am lee:

KFHP: Celebration Day is coming soon.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:58am Caryn:

This just reminds me that I haven't seen Spanish-dubbed James Bond. "Desde Rusia con amor" will now be sought out.
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:58am f●f● (:

ay ay ay !!! show's over! thank you ken and commenters! i love you all!
  Wed. 9/26/12 11:59am Caryn:

@Ken: I don't think the cover is terrible as far as the actual performance is concerned. It's just that the cover doesn't seem to pay any attention to the frigging lyrics.
  Wed. 9/26/12 12:00pm Sam:

Damn it, we have to wait another week for more Ken?
  Wed. 9/26/12 12:04pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Tune in six hours from now for the Seven Second Delay program with Ken and Andy.
  Wed. 9/26/12 12:16pm Robert:

I don't object to the "Leanna" cover on any ground. It's the Shatner "Spirit in the Sky" that was awful. Sorry, I was in the bathroom so couldn't comment earlier.
  Wed. 9/26/12 12:27pm PMD:

@Caryn, thanks! got pulled away so couldn't thank you...
