Listener comments!

  Tue. 10/16/07 12:08am Jessica:

[tappity tappity tap tap tap]!
  Tue. 10/16/07 12:08am God:

Just heard your prayer and thought I'd drop in and post. Good show.
  Tue. 10/16/07 12:22am efd:

hey, thanks Jessica! and thanks, God!
I wonder if God is listening to the radio or to the online stream...
  Tue. 10/16/07 12:38am JZ from Toronto:

God is singing and playing bass in Motorhead!!LOL!!!
  Tue. 10/16/07 12:43am somebody in minnesota:

appreciated the uk subs. hate when you're dj'ing and someone calls in to say "good show" and you're all "thanks, you too"
  Tue. 10/16/07 12:46am cheeto:

Pretty much every time a cashier or stockist says "have a good weekend" and I say ,"you too". But deep down we both know they will be working at Duane Reade all weekend. They will not go out in the sunshine and have a picnic. They will be doing price checks on Immodium AD through 8pm on Sunday night.
  Tue. 10/16/07 12:48am AJ:

That was me, and boy did I feel silly when you didn't say "Have a good night (or evening)" which is what my brain had you saying.
  Tue. 10/16/07 12:52am efd:

@AJ - Sorry for singling you out... I could tell there was a little hesitation in your voice, but you just couldn't help it. Believe me, I've been there.
@cheeto - that is a whole other twist on the "inappropriate you too" phenomenon.
@MN - perfect example! glad you enjoyed UK Subs
  Tue. 10/16/07 12:56am cheeto:

are you playing this from a 7", and thus you think it's cool?
  Tue. 10/16/07 12:59am God:

To answer your question, I listen on both radio and online. The resulting delay sounds so awesome up here.
  Tue. 10/16/07 1:06am minnesota:

god: i'd hoped the listening experience in heaven would be more on the sensational side? if there are delays, then i'm delaying my trip up there
  Tue. 10/16/07 1:17am God:

Minnestota: I knew you were going to ask that! Actually, we're renovating extensively now, so yes, do delay your trip as long as possible if you can't handle a bit of a mess. We actually had a "pardon our dust" sign posted for a while, but it offended our cremated guests and got taken down.

EFD: digging this Divine Sounds track a lot. Thanks!
  Tue. 10/16/07 1:18am efd:

@God: of course you are -- it is Divine, after all.
  Tue. 10/16/07 1:20am michael:

this divine sounds track is blowing my mind!
  Tue. 10/16/07 1:20am cheeto:

man, you are awesome for playing this.

and also, I like these easy math questions.
  Tue. 10/16/07 1:22am efd:

is it just me or is anyone else getting a John Carpenter vibe off this Baby Elephant track?
  Tue. 10/16/07 1:25am Mortimer Prime:

Alienating your non-NYC/NJ listenership is fine and cool and dandy like candy, but only if you occasionally alienate your NYC/NJ listeners by offering goodies to everybody EXCEPT them. But whatevs. You're keeping me alive in my cultural-drought-afflicted corner of the Chicago suburbs, and you still have my gratitude. I'll drink to your health and the longevity and supremacy of WFMU.
  Tue. 10/16/07 1:26am AJ:

It was a Daniel Pinkwater book, but I don't remember the name.
  Tue. 10/16/07 1:28am minnesota:

cheers, morty. i demand a wfmu sweatshirt to be sent out here immediately.
  Tue. 10/16/07 1:47am efd:

@Mortimer - You make a good point, although I'm not in any position to start giving away FMU swag all willy-nilly, unfortunately. Thanks for the drink and kind words, in any case!

@AJ - I think my short-term memory is completely shot, I am not getting the Daniel Pinkwater reference at all.
  Tue. 10/16/07 1:57am AJ:

RE: Baby Elephant Turn Your Teeth Up, the book with a kid who listened to radio through his fillings or maybe braces.
  Tue. 10/16/07 2:03am efd:

like I said, no short-term memory... thanks for the tip, AJ!
  Tue. 10/16/07 2:42am slugluv1313:

Chris Hodge -- dayyum!!!! (speaking of short term memory -- how come i can remember getting all exited when i saw/heard "We're On Our Way" on "American Bandstand" soooooo many years ago, but cannot remember why i walked into the next room???)
  Wed. 10/17/07 2:08pm God:

I'm also listening to next week's show. H-Evan-ly!
  Mon. 10/22/07 11:44pm A. Booklyn:

Re. "Control," isn't it amazing that someone with such a mundane life and milieu like Ian Curtis was able to produce such incredible, timeless music? I mean, based on the movie, his life was mostly just an ordinary domestic melodrama. Anyone else relying on such thin gruel for inspiration, as Ian did, would not have come up with a whole lot. And the guys in Joy Division, whose less than insightful comments on their historic band I've followed for years, were not the sharpest tacks--but it seems they all went beyond the moment and whatever limitations they may have had. That's the real story there, it seems to me (unless I'm missing a large part of puzzle--and it is a puzzle).
