Hey, Matt--how goes it?
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:10am Matt from Springfield:

Going fantastically tonight!

Man, I need to check that Joni cover set!
What tune was "Je N'ai Rien Appris"? "Both Sides Now" a français?
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 1:11am Joe McG:

Yes, indeed, Matt! I've been in a mellow mood tonight.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:12am Matt from Springfield:

Great guess then! :)
Mellow is good! The holidays are stressful enough, so I'm glad other DJs have been going mellow of late.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:18am Matt from Springfield:

"Graham Central Station is a funk band named after founder Larry Graham (formerly of Sly & the Family Stone)."
"In 2011, Graham Central Station opened for Prince on Prince's "Welcome 2 America" tour."

Interesting blend of soul, thanks for introducing us to them!
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 1:20am Joe McG:

You're welcome, Matt. I've dipped into that bag several times, but I always come up with an apple.
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 1:23am Joe McG:

Or a graham cracker.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:24am Matt from Springfield:

A savory apple pie, with graham cracker crust of course.
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 1:26am Joe McG:

Yum. Ever make a pudding pie? That's where you get a graham cracker crust and dump pudding in it. Then you eat it.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:27am Ruby:

Dear DJ, disabled listening on a hand me down HP laptop which overheats and wheezes blissfully. The music is being transmitted, for now. Thanks! (WA state)
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 1:29am Joe McG:

Hi, Ruby, I love your name. Hello to the State of Washington.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:30am Matt from Springfield:

My grandma has made chocolate pudding pie, on regular, graham cracker and Oreo crusts. But I imagine banana pudding would be amazing, kinda like the Nilla wafer and sliced banana mix you can make.

Incidentally, WA state brings us Ruby Red Apples :) Welcome Ruby!
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:30am northguineahills:

Howdy-oo0. Mstt f springfield: rarely here at this time of the morn on a weekend, top of the morn to ya!

Joe, thanks for the tunes!
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:31am Matt from Springfield:

Why hellos and top o' the morns to ya, NGH!
Glad I caught you here! One time DCE was on here live--the night I WASN'T! Always encourage mingling of daytime/nightime FMU crowds.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:32am Andrew Waterloo:

I am here, I am lurking
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:34am Matt from Springfield:

And Andrewaterloo! A hearty howdy to you as well.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:36am Ruby:

Latest autumn greetings. Dark as a dungeon.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:36am Andrew Waterloo:

I have Basinski at the top of my Christmas list
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:37am Zebtron A. Rama:

Salute from Plattsburgh, NY.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:37am Matt from Springfield:

Even better than Christmas music was that "winter folk" episode you did! Though I could see if you don't want to stretch one theme too far.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:37am Matt from Springfield:

Salut, Zebtron! LOVE your moniker!
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 1:37am Joe McG:

@ANdrew: That's one gorgeous box. That one we DO have. Hey, Plattsburgh!
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 1:40am Joe McG:

@Matt: Thanks, Matt. I encourage everyone to listen to all of my archives, over and over.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:41am Andrew Waterloo:

Yah, it really does look gorgeous, and heavy. :)
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 1:42am Joe McG:

@Andrew: It IS heavy.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:44am Brian in UK:

Mornin' Joe. McGuinn was always good at recording other peoples songs before they did. He had Dylan's 'Up to Me' on the same album & it had not be recorded by the man. Same with Dreamland. Did the same with early Fogelberg.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:44am sweet cheri:

joe i'm really looking forward to your xnas show,,don't you just love the holiday season as much as i do?
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:44am Andrew Waterloo:

My first Christmas back home I learned not to ask for money. It was just really lame opening up a handful of cards.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:45am Matt from Springfield:

Morning Brian! Didn't know McGuinn recorded early Fogelberg.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:46am Matt from Springfield:

Lil' Red Riding Hood, Sometimes! This is a funky one!
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 1:48am Joe McG:

@Matt: Man, that's some killin', murderin' Black Rock! Love that cut. Hey, Brian!
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:51am Brian in UK:

Peace on You album. Forget the track. Too early. He does a great cover of Al Kooper's Please Not (One More Time) Think the brackets are in the right place. You could do a whole show on bracketed titles!!
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:51am Mike Sin:

All right! Just in time for 45s!
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:51am Brian in UK:

Ofcourse you did. SATISFACTION.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:53am David Knight:

as always, great show!
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:53am KP:

Was this in the movie?
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:53am Matt from Springfield:

Alright, the Great Mike Sin! Nice to see you!

Mmmmmmm, HEAVY français right here! Serge & Jane multiplied by Barry White!
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 1:53am Joe McG:

Of course I did! Hi, again, Mike Sin! Thanks, DK!
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 1:56am Joe McG:

@KP: What movie?
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:56am KP:

Missed your Joni set. There was a great recent pic of her around yesterday.
  Sun. 12/9/12 1:59am Matt from Springfield:

RIP John. We love you Yoko. Long live peace. Long live art. Long live bags.
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:01am Brian in UK:

32 years yesterday.
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:06am Mike Sin:

Hi Matt from Springfield!
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:06am Mike Sin:

Hi Matt from Springfield!
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:06am Mike Sin:

Hi Matt from Springfield!
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:06am KP:

oops. Belle de Jour.
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:07am Matt from Springfield:

Hi Mike Sin! (echo, echo, echo) :)
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:08am Mike Sin:

My fingers are shaking, obviously.
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:10am Matt from Springfield:

Fiasco McGasko!
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 2:15am Joe McG:

Uh-oh, it's going to stick now.
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:17am KP:

It's Neil Innes' birthday.
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:18am Andrew Waterloo:

Wow, even the whistling is in German
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 2:18am Joe McG:

@KP: I like Neil Innes. I need to get me one of those Rock Star Birthday calendars.
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:18am KP:

The English speak German too well.
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:18am Matt from Springfield:

"Jeux sans frontieres"?? YES!!!!! Und auf Deutsch! "Spiel ohne Grenzen" :)
EXCELLENT cut, from Peter Gabriel (III), the sounds typifies Peter's 1980 sound. I have also heard the German version of "Biko".
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 2:24am Joe McG:

Yeah, the whole thing's in German!
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:32am arafresha:

loving the show disastro
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 2:33am Joe McG:

Heh heh! Disastro McGasko, never heard that one, but it's a good one!
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:33am Matt from Springfield:

Mmm, Glass Candy, 'nother good mellow one.
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:36am Matt from Springfield:

Reminds me of a Debbie Harry spoken interlude.
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 2:37am Joe McG:

I think that's why I love this woman's voice. Reminds me of Debbie.
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:39am Matt from Springfield:

That's true. If Blondie had gone in more of a chill electronica direction two decades ahead of trend, perhaps they would sound like this.
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:42am Matt from Springfield:

Speaking of two decades ahead of trend, it seems Harry James was already playing Lou Reed in the 40s! ;)
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:44am Matt from Springfield:

  Sun. 12/9/12 2:49am Matt from Springfield:

Nice trancey Italian piano.
Avatar Sun. 12/9/12 2:54am Joe McG:

Goodnight, everyone, thanks for listening!
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:56am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Joe! Great sets!
Have a good night/day/afternoon everyone!
  Sun. 12/9/12 2:59am full_english_breakfast:
