Listener comments!

  Sun. 10/7/12 12:12am Holly in NC:

Good evening, Joe. Settling in for a good listen, here.
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 12:14am Joe McG:

Hey, Holly! I thought we'd start tonight's show with another DJ doing the programming.
  Sun. 10/7/12 12:21am Holly in NC:

I adore the Jive Five
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 12:23am Joe McG:

Me, too. Cry, cry, cry! This may turn into Jive Five month on Surface Noise since I played them last week, too.
  Sun. 10/7/12 12:58am BULLDOZr:

Baby I just can't your love alone..
  Sun. 10/7/12 12:58am BULLDOZr:

Baby I just can't your love alone..
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 12:59am Joe McG:

You really can't leave that love alone!
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:06am BULLDOZr:

I know. Tell me about it.
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:09am Holly in NC:

Whoa. Have never heard this version of Afro Blue
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 1:10am Joe McG:

Hubert Laws on fire.
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:24am Matt from Springfield:

Hey Joe!
Made it in time for SF! This Robert Pollard is pretty good.
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 1:26am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt! Someone here wrote "super poppy" on the disc, but that to me is a plus!
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:27am Holly in NC:

I like this RP also
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:27am Matt from Springfield:

Plus to me as well!
This is FMU after all--you can play pop, but no half-assed pop! It had better be SUPER! :)
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:28am keving:

Huh, never thought of it before, but the guy from the Verlaines kind of sounds like Robert Pollard's much-taller brother.
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:28am Matt from Springfield:

Hyllo Holly!
Nuts, not *quite* an anagram... :)
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 1:29am Joe McG:

@Keving: His older brother from New Zealand!
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:32am Holly in NC:

Hi Matt!
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:34am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Holly! Fall is really starting to begin now.
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:40am Matt from Springfield:

I like Jomo, never heard of them! Like a Latin-infused Booker T and MGs!
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 1:44am Joe McG:

@Matt: Jomo is actually Andre Williams!
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:44am velcro:

the Jomo song was great. Another song I'll need to research
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:44am Matt from Springfield:

Here comes a "rap"! :D
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 1:47am Joe McG:

Hey, velcro!
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:49am Chop Scott:

JOE! Killer sets tonight--Cheers to you and DB!
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:50am BULLDOZr:

Great sounding singles. I'm happy to be tuning in this hour.
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 1:51am Joe McG:

Ah, Chop Scott! So good to see you. Hope you're having a swell evening.
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:51am Matt from Springfield:

Pyrite! Iron sulfate!
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 1:52am Joe McG:

@BULLDOZr: Glad you're enjoyin' 'em. It's always a real pot luck picks situation.
  Sun. 10/7/12 1:53am Matt from Springfield:

Sounds like an instrumental B-side!
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 1:55am Joe McG:

@Matt: You got it, sir! I liked the idea of a GP record without GP actually singing on it.
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:03am Matt from Springfield:

Deeply funky Hot Line. GREAT set Joe!
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:04am Matt from Springfield:

You even remembered to finish with Pt. 2 of the Pt. 1 song you started with, as per SF protocol! Huzzah!
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:05am Matt from Springfield:

The *fabulous* Impressions--what else would they be! :)
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:24am Matt from Springfield:

Pointed satire, no doubt towards some in the FMU community as well! :)
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 2:26am Joe McG:

Oh, Matt, no one at FMU is like that!
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:29am Matt from Springfield:

I mean more like the "Williamsburg Brooklyn hipster" types of people, some of whom listen here! There's "I was there first" types of hipsters across many communities. That's why I'm liking this LCD Soundsystem.
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 2:32am Joe McG:

I'm just joshing you, Matt. FMU is not immune to any and all cultural trends.
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:35am Matt from Springfield:

Sure Joe! I don't know who specifically, but it's probable that every culture trend is represented in part here.
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:36am keving:

So weird. Feel like I'm transported to six or seven years ago between Art Brut and the LCD Soundsystem song. Both of those songs and their sentiments were constantly around everything, I'm only now realizing that people don't seem to act like that so much anymore.
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:37am Julie:

oooh love this
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:37am Matt from Springfield:

Good middle of night, Julie!
The Spelling Mistakes or The Fall?
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:40am Julie:

spelling mistakes
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 2:44am Joe McG:

@keving: That's kind of a good thing, I think. Unless we're now just too old to see it! @Julie: Hello!
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:46am Julie:

i am loving this little foray into punk Joe
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:48am Brian in UK:

Mornin' Joe.
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:48am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Diddo, for both the music and sentiment expressed!
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:50am Julie:

john cougar clarke?
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:55am Matt from Springfield:

RIP, R.B.
Ahh, he covered this Bacharach-David song! It's a good fit, considering how he sounded in "Take A Letter Maria"

(Much like B.W. Stevenson (more with these initials!), hearing "My Maria" you're not surprised when you find that he co-wrote "Shambala")
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:57am Matt from Springfield:

Oh, I've heard this one before!
Avatar Sun. 10/7/12 2:57am Joe McG:

Guilty! Good night everybody, thanks for listening!
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:59am BULLDOZ'r:

G'night
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:59am BULLDOZ'r:

G'night
  Sun. 10/7/12 2:59am Matt from Springfield:

Good night Joe! Julie!
Good day Brian! The rest of yinse, have a great night!
  Sun. 10/7/12 3:00am BULLDOZ'r:

I do not have a stuttering problem. It's the phone app.
