Listener comments!

  9:06pm Therese:

Hey, can you play Queen?
  9:08pm Richard from Venezuela:

hahahahaha, good one therese. Greetings Mike and all the listeners.
  9:12pm lupica:

Will the Queen gag ever get old? Do you think I won't play Queen if threatened? WE'LL ALL FIND OUT TOGETHER!
  9:15pm cz-kluk:

excellent new theme song - closing credits of prairie farm report, extended version!
  9:15pm Snortley:

  9:16pm Mike VL:

RIP Doctor Cosmo
  9:17pm cz-kluk:

*expected brian eno/dan bodah, sorry!
  9:17pm tomB:

Dang! I was sure your plan was to next run that Chathan cut in reverse. Those were the days.
  9:30pm hellbilly13:

FreshMaggots borrowed heavily from NRBQ's "Me and the Boys" (lyrically) on that track.
  9:37pm Scott W:

MikeLupicaOnTheRadio! JeffreyIHearYouOnTheRadio!
  9:42pm Irwin:

Always great to hear fresh young voices on WFMU. If I have to sit thru one more geriatric jock ...
  9:47pm Frisco Kid:

Anyone have a link about Dr. Cosmo that's NOT a blog? I'm at work and firewalled out of anything with the word blog in the URL. Grrrrrrr.
  9:48pm lupica:

Irwin, you always make me feel so young. Want to come down here and press on the soft spot on my skull?
  9:49pm Mark T:

Mike L : great to hear you on the air -- Mark
  9:49pm Chop Scott:

I am very so happy to hear you on air tonight---miss your voice, song selection, even the bed loop!
  9:51pm Irwin:

Spoiler alert: Did you know Mike is alter ego of WFMU's Old Codger? The Codger is real; Mike is a construct.
  9:52pm Joe B:

wow, hadn't heard about Doctor Cosmo. RIP. one of the greats
  9:52pm lupica:

Irwin, it's Monday, aren't you supposed to be namechecking Andy Breckman?
  9:53pm Joe D.:

why the hell can't I find the Howard Tate version of Stop on the goddamn internet, that's what I want to know.
  9:54pm Scott W:

Chop Scott! Good to see you here. Mike's talkover loops is peerless.
  9:57pm Ike:

Great show, sir. I guess you got tired of the "Hip Transistor" moniker for the show. Titles are always nice though. How about "Yogurt Transistor" instead?
  9:59pm lupica:

  10:03pm INDEX:

  10:07pm Upper East Jeff:

This track is sick. Shari Vari! Great set
  10:08pm Joe D.:

yr toadally wrong dood
  10:16pm jason:

enjoying the show and Enjoy Trees! Magic Carpathians posted it to the Free Music Archive today, here it is
  10:20pm Droll:

You made a Budgie reference, now you have to play the Welsh Rock gods.
  10:22pm cosmic matrix:

hi everybody--if you wanna hear some new cosmic matrix, visit COSMICMATRIXX.BLOGSPOT.COM !! i love you fmu.
  10:27pm lupica:

Seriously? I made a Budgie reference? UNINTENTIONAL!
  10:31pm Marmalade Kitty:

Coo-ee! can I sleep on your floor
  10:32pm Droll:

Hot as a docker's armpit is a Budgie tune. The rule still holds if the reference was intentional or not. Sorry.
  10:35pm lupica:

Will you hate me if it's Breadfan?
  10:36pm Eric:

pretty generic house music
  10:37pm lupica:

Thank you, Eric. This is my brother's band!
  10:37pm Woody:

I want to hear the seque from the house music to Breadfan, open up your mind...
  10:38pm Joe D.:

YOUR house is pretty generic, I heard.
  10:38pm Eric:

Marc Leclair is your brother?
  10:40pm Droll:

I guess it'll have to do, but this fantasy I have of the FMU vaults is shrinking (pun intended). And I though the house was generic as well. Sorry again.
  10:40pm Eric:

maybe you meant to play the other side of that record, used to happen to me all the time...
  10:42pm Woody:

Actually the FMU basement is quite vault like. Stale dank air, curious smells, low ceilings. Records, records, records. Weird promo items from labels from 1995. records records.
  10:43pm Marmalade Kitty:

Richard, are you there? Can you help translate this song?
  10:44pm lupica:

Woody! I can hardly wait until you walk 30 feet into the studio so we can say hello!
  10:46pm Droll:

Woody, sure -- exactly as before but the ceiling is even lower, the one light bulb is 4 watts, and the records are now 45's.
  10:48pm Richard from Venezuela:

@Marmalade: The song is called black love from the album Faces & Mouths.
  10:50pm Frisco Kid:

Love the Twinkeyz! And yeah, it's spelled with a "z" at the end....
  10:50pm Richard from Venezuela:

@marmalade I think that Negro Amor was inspired by a bob dylan song, according this link: http://escritorasunidas.blogspot.com/2011/02/gal-costaits-all-over-now-baby-blue.html
  10:51pm lupica:

Oops! Will fix that in a second. Thanks Frisco!
  11:01pm Marmalade Kitty:

thanks Richard, :) I was just interested, obviously Gal Costa has changed the words to the song Baby Blue, are all the lyrics different?
This is why I should have payed more attention in Spanish class!
  11:05pm Woody:

Umm, Gal Costa is Brazilian and speaks Portugese. Actually, just saw her the other night at Carnegie Hall.
  11:05pm Richard from Venezuela:

No, the meaning of all verses doesn't change. Its a terrific portuguese version.
  11:08pm Marmalade Kitty:

Nice one! thanks Rich! :)
  11:09pm Richard from Venezuela:

You're welcome. Thanks to dj mike for sharing that song.
  11:10pm Marmalade Kitty:

Thanks Mike! :)
  11:12pm Droll:

did that Timex Social Club get 7 seconds dumped or did my computer skip? That song didn't even make the Filthy 15.
  11:13pm Richard from Venezuela:

  11:14pm Ike:

I prefer "Roaches" to "Rumors":
  11:20pm Marmalade Kitty:

lol, scary how he aged those chics! I read somewhere that healthy eyes do not age.. maybe it was a lie!
  11:24pm Richard from Venezuela:

Next: type o negative - i don't wanna be me

Killing song.
  11:34pm marty mcsorley:

man is this the dude from the enablers? love this dudes voice so much
  11:34pm Marmalade Kitty:

I've got Steve buscemeyes eyes..! ** Time for bed!
  11:35pm lupica:

Yep, that's him! Agreed -- he is a top shelf guy.
  11:37pm marty mcsorley:

depending on my mood its a toss up between him, donald southerland and morgan freeman of who narrates my inner monologue
  11:38pm cod:

I think I just heard a sample from a MadVillain album
  11:41pm lupica:

Marty, please make a movie about your brain!
  11:45pm Kramer:

Now I've heard Die Donnergotter twice on the radio/dj'd show in 20 years. I never thought it would happen, so I bought the CD.
Thanks Mike.
  11:48pm lupica:

You are most welcome, sir.
  11:50pm Kramer:

And you know which station I hear it on the first time.
Good to 'see' you in the Ether.
  11:54pm Chop Scott:

Thank you for tonight's sound track!
  7:00am Vicki:

  12:12pm Pete:

Thanks again, Mike. Much appreciated. One thing, though: those music segments/tracks are from Black Octagon and McWatt, respectively.
See you down the road, cugino!
