  Thu. 10/11/12 6:04am pierre:

seems like a difficult theme.

Bonjour Meghan, Dave B, and parkies !!
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:05am Dave B:

They make you regular!

Bonjour Pierre! Hamburger needs more condiments!
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:06am Chuck:

Interesting that many of Dave's themes are food related. Hungry, Dave?
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:07am Dave B:

I was thinking that myself, Chuck. Just a coincidence. Honest!
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:08am Dave B:

That opening trombone was the broccoli.
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:09am Bob:

We can expect plenty of wind instruments today..?
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:12am Chuck:

Question is which vegetable goes best with beer?
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:13am hamburger:

sorry not related, but this shirt picture is so coo! http://bit.ly/QeSVXb

Beer.... radish and potatoes

It's the lovely silent Marathon! Thanks to all that have pledged! Let's push me to half way! or beyond!!!!
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:17am pierre:

i like a vegetable soup with my beers.
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:18am fred von helsing:

radish milkshakes for everyone !
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:18am Chuck:

And I just made fresh cornbread the other day....
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:18am dan from brooklyn:

green beans and corn bread?
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:18am Dave E.:

Lettuce, turnup and pea!
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:20am Dave E.:

Coffee is rat turds,
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:21am Chuck:

The average human consumes about a pound of dirt in their lifetime. I, of course, surpassed that mark years ago....(not intentionally!)
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:23am Dave E.:

I love potatoes chopped up into chunky chips.
I love spicy potato wedges, served up with dips.
I love potato slices which have been fried in a pan:
Of sautéed potatoes, I am the world's biggest fan.
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:24am cosmic:

Morning. Thanks for making me hungry thinking about vegetables.
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:24am Dave E.:

With breakfast, I love hash browns or potato cakes,
And I love potatoes mixed up with leeks in a bake.
Crispy, golden potatoes, served up with Sunday roast
Are among the kinds of potato which I love the most.
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:25am hamburger:

mmm hash browns - seem like a lot of effort tho
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:26am Dave E.:

Is it potatoe or potato?
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:26am Dave B:

Ask Dan Quayle
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:27am Chuck:

Just had hash browns last night, hamburger! (Zero effort, got them pre-shredded at the supermarket.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/12 6:28am Meghan:

Remember- highest pledger gets to pick the next theme and if I make $3000 you get to pick out the songs and come on air with me (if you are around.... or we could skype you in!)
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:29am hamburger:

oh jes! cowboy bebop!
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:30am Dave B:

And $5000 = ALL RUSH THEME!

  Thu. 10/11/12 6:30am hamburger:

pre-shreddeddd aye........ hmmmm may have a look out for that.
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:31am hamburger:

all rush would make for a good april fool's surprise
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:31am pierre:

i've just realise that potatoe is a very popular vegetable, a LOT of song will have it as a theme or a metaphore; potatoes has always been cheap, therefore, popular.
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:33am Dave E.:

Doesn't Rush have a song about potatoes?
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:36am Dave E.:

I think its "Closer to the potato"
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:39am Bob:

The song is wrong... NOBODY says 'po-tah-to'..!
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:39am Chuck:

If you put the potato salad in the Bass-O-Matic you could make it a liquid!
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:44am Dave B:

The video of Solid Potato Salad with the bendy Ross sisters is awesome

  Thu. 10/11/12 6:44am hamburger:

there should be a wfmu / listener recipe book...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/12 6:46am Meghan:

Highest pledger gets to pick out theme, if I make $3000 highest pledger gets to pick out music and/or come on air with me, and lastly.... $5000 it becomes an all RUSH show. yes..... I guess I love torturing myself.
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:47am Chuck:

That's actually a pretty good idea, hamburger...
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:48am Dave E.:

I always eat peas with honey,
I’ve done it all my life,
They do taste kind of funny,
But it keeps them on the knife.
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:48am Dave B:

I hate Lima Beans. To chalky on the inside.
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:50am Dave E.:

Sex is good, but not as good as fresh, sweet corn.
- Garrison Keillor
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:50am pierre:

@Hamburger (of course) i like your idea !
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:51am Dave E.:

@ Dave B. I agree, not anywhere as good as Rush!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/12 6:52am Meghan:

Oh I would say they are equally awful
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:52am Dave E.:

Rush is the vegetables of the ears.
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:53am Dave B:

I had a gym teacher in high school who had cauliflower ear.
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:55am Chuck:

I'm with you, Meghan. Hate sweet peppers, love hot peppers. Go figure...
  Thu. 10/11/12 6:56am EvdWee:

  Thu. 10/11/12 7:04am Dave B:

  Thu. 10/11/12 7:07am Dave B:

Yum Yum - EAT EM UP!

I'm a vegetarian once removed. The animals I love to eat, I let them eat veggies.

Like that cow up there. She's hungry for some green!
  Thu. 10/11/12 7:14am pierre:

i love this "radio animator" accent/voice from time to time.

I only have an hour left to my show and my pledge bar has not moved at all..... I think I am going to cry....
  Thu. 10/11/12 7:52am Dave B:

And it's not the onions!

Wouldn't you like to sit here in the lap of luxury putting together a show? That dream can be yours!

  Thu. 10/11/12 7:53am Magda:

Good Morning. I'm going to have to catch the Killer Tomatoe theme song on the archives.
  Thu. 10/11/12 7:53am Dave B:

  Thu. 10/11/12 7:54am Magda:

Good Morning. I admire the both of you for your spunk to be up so early.
  Thu. 10/11/12 7:57am Dave B:

Spunky Onions!
  Thu. 10/11/12 7:59am Chuck:

Well, I only managed to move the bar slightly. But there you go...
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:00am pierre:

In France we had a crazy child (but not only) program called Telechat, and sometimes it would feature the weirdest characters like LEGUMAN for example


which is the appropriate super-hero for that playlist !
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:03am Chuck:

Sounds revolting...
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:03am northguineahills:

I always love veggies as a kid, usually fresh, b/c my mom wasn't much of a cook.
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:03am Elwyn:

eggplant is great on the grill, esp if you cut off the skin after it's cooked
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:09am Elwyn:

I want to see:
* kale that resembles John Cale
* an eggplant that resembles the face of Robert Plant
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:10am jeff p:

The thing about kale is, you start with this big, huge bundle, and the moment you cook it it shrinks to about 1% of its original size. Why bother?
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:11am Brian in UK:

This combines veg & flowers
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:13am Dave B:

Same with collard greens. And ya have to cook the shit out of 'em, otherwise its like eating lawn clippings
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:13am Dirty Old Man:

Ya, Baby, Rev. Payton
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:14am northguineahills:

But collard greens are dern tasty!
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:16am jeff p:

collard greens and kale are tasty the way grits are tasty... if you cover them with a bunch of stuff that actually tastes good
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:17am Dave B:

Like a pork chop
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/12 8:17am Meghan:

yup..... I agree Jeff. Collard greens are only good with bacon!
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:18am jeff p:

and that meal would be better without the collard greens
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/12 8:18am Meghan:

Come on every one! I don't want to only thank Chuck over the air...... Let me add your name to the list!
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:19am karen:

I had a great kale salad last week on Martha's Vinyard! It was wilted with blue cheese, pecans and crispy bacon, covered with a bacon vinegarette..yum!
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:19am jeff p:

see? that whole salad would be better without the kale!
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:20am hamburger:

another song aboot an eggplant/aubergine eating a location - what up wit dat
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:20am northguineahills:

Nah, I actually can eat collard tips raw. Heck, I even make vegetarian cooked collard greens (my gf is a veggie). I just like vegetables, always have. I usually don't mix my meat w/ my veggies (w/ some notable exceptions).

At my old job, I had a Polish coworker who used to cook boiled cabbage all the time. Holy shit, that stank up the whole office! And I like certain kinds of boiled cabbage, I just would never cook it around other human beings, like myself.

cheri.... do you like kale?
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:41am Cheri Pi:

I had natto for the first time this summer in Japan, I could handle it as long as I mixed it with pickles and miso.
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:42am northguineahills:

I love kimchi, but my gf hates it when I bring it home.
Natto, definitely an acquired taste.

I'm a fully recovered vegetarian. I took a 12-step program.

For the record, I like kale, i just don't seek it.
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:42am Cheri Pi:

I love love love Kale.

Jeff P: you haven't lived until you've eaten a bowl of kale chips while listening to "Working Man".
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:51am northguineahills:

The lowly crappy vender-cart hotdog was my gateway "meat". I was tired of eating nothing but falafel everyday when I was in grad school on the upper east side, b/c all other veggie opportunities were rather pricey. fast-forward a dozen years, and I love my veggies raw, cooked or however, and I love my meats...
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:52am jeff p:

I'd sooner DIE than soil a great song like that....
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:53am PKNY:

Was just checking out the info on that Stunt record on Amazon, they have a song named "Bill Withers Was Right". Can't wait to give that a listen later today.
  Thu. 10/11/12 8:54am Cheri Pi:

  Thu. 10/11/12 8:57am Elwyn:

You better have that song from South Park.
