Good morning Japan!

I don't know if Japan's comment is funnier if he/she/it actually typed in "おはようございます" as I see it here in the FMU studio, or actual Japanese characters. But Japan, if you could do us a favor, explain why we in tarnation you returned Shinzo Abe and his right wing / nationalist agenda to office - !
  Sat. 12/29/12 6:39pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Stellar show Rob! A Tribe Called Red will requires more listening. Happy New Year!

Hey, Abe throws a good party, i prefer Ultraman myself, but thanks for the linguistic tip anyhow.
  Sat. 12/29/12 7:04pm Evita:

Hey Martha! Love from Athens, Greece! xx
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/29/12 7:06pm Your DJ:

Hi Evita, thanks for listening! I met Martha at WOMEX in Thessaloniki this autumn, she's great (and very nice too), I hope she makes it to North America sometime soon!
  Sat. 12/29/12 7:09pm Evita:

I can't believe it! It's a small world! Martha is a good friend of mine :) I'll pass the message on to her. She's really great and very creative. Much love xx P.S we're a bunch of people here and we're loving your music set
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/29/12 7:13pm Your DJ:

Wow small world indeed Evita - please do say hello. And I'm glad you're all enjoying the music!

  Sat. 12/29/12 7:30pm Evita:

you pronounced it really well! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/29/12 7:33pm Your DJ:

Well, I guess I'm good at faking it, thanks Evita! Of course then I stumbled over Stathis Kalyviotis' name but that's REALLY a tough one for us language-challenged New Jerseyans!
  Sat. 12/29/12 7:36pm Evita:

your pronunciation is excellent! we're all really very touched by your choice to air Greek music. We sincerely thank you for that xx
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/29/12 7:40pm Your DJ:

Thanks Evita! Sometime in the next few months I'll invite my friend and musician George Sempepos back to the show and really focus on Greek music. He's the person who introduced me to Kristi Stassinopoulou and he met Martha at WOMEX too. Thanks so much for listening especially at this very late hour, a great new year to you and everyone with you!
  Sat. 12/29/12 7:48pm Evita:

That will be great! I'll keep an eye for that one. I listen to WFMU regularly. My friends and I wish you a happy new year too. P.S we never sleep on a Saturday night ;) lolz
