Listener comments!

  6:05am ?:

hola joe! what shape hole school did you attend?
  6:06am Joe:

The one where you put the squares into the circles.
  6:08am ?:

whew! thank goodness!
  6:10am Joe:

Or maybe it was the one where you put the circles into the squares. I'm still trying.
  6:10am ?:

thanks for existing!
  6:11am Joe:

Shucks! Thanks.
  6:12am pauladepipersdaughterinparispleasegod:

im in berlin s main shape hole school at the moment. ive been in the r&d department for 4 years now, working with 8 other students on a mind blowing universal shape hole project. weve been studying pre-historic shape holes, and combining that with current cutting edge technologies to build a machine that can instantly recognise any tangible object, its form, texture, sound, smell and obviously shape. this goes way beyond airport security and has serious repercussions for the knowledge economy.
  6:15am Joe:

You are clearly doing the work of the Blessed.
  6:18am pauladepipersdaughterinparis:

indeed it is critical work we are involved in. i will send on some shape hole drawings next week just so you can visualise some of the activities we get up to here in this top class top secret israeli sponsored institution
  6:19am Joe:

Great! I'll play them on the air.
  6:27am Sue:

Good morning, Joe! How are you doing?
  6:31am Joe:

Great, Sue! Thanks for checkin' in!
  7:38am postmanpaul:

  7:38am hiptran:

Ahhh, this Jonathan Richman song was the first I ever heard/loved. Thanks, Joe!
  7:40am Joe:

Thanks, Postmanpaul! Hope you made some dosh.
Thanks, Hiptran! Always loved it, too.
  7:47am Joe:

Sorry, everybody, about playing Mavis at the wrong pitch. Kinda sleepy today and didn't notice till I played Lulu. Still a great record!
  8:02am Irwin:

what's all the racket?
  8:03am brian - newcastle - UK:

hello dude, virgin mega stores are now no more, great tunes thanks
  8:06am Joe:

Thanks, Brian! Yeah, I thought I read somewhere that there was still one in Spain or something. Alas, no more "Virgin" checkout girls.
  8:12am Sue:

I can't believe you're playing this! You're making my morning
  8:12am Joe:

Hi, Irwin!
  8:16am Joe:

Thanks, Sue!
  8:57am "Amanda":
