Listener comments!

  12:03pm Cecile:

awesome art, MN Jeff!

Kurt, can you play one of Slayer's blazing covers? doesn't matter what. Or Judas priest's Diamonds and Rust?
  12:05pm Andy in Berlin:

Or Type O Neg playing Magical Mystery Tour?
  12:05pm 12539:

The MN Jeff animations alone are worth tuning in for...if tuning in can be used to refer to viewing a comments board.
  12:05pm Todd 76%:

Anthrax's Joe Jackson cover?
  12:06pm Cecile:

God, Kurt, I gotta send you Peggy Lee's version of this.
  12:07pm hamburger / london:

  12:07pm Minnesota Jeff:

THanks guys. Niiiiice, a Blood Sweat and Tears cover!
  12:07pm von Stypp:

Chickens coming home to roost's how I sees um.
  12:09pm Melissa Drifting:

I'm pretty entranced by the MN Jeff gif. It's hyp-mo-tizing.
  12:10pm glenn:

or william shatner covering, well, just about anything.
  12:10pm BodegaMan:

covers. oh my. classic rock numbs me even when instrumental.

and hi folks, hope all are well.
  12:14pm Cecile:

I love blacknuss
  12:16pm Andy in Berlin:

this version sounds like it's from the soundtrack to Taxi Driver
  12:16pm Handsome Harry:

Minnesota Jeff has out-done himself. Kurt - you will always have my acceptance.
  12:18pm von Stypp:

They cawnt be serious
  12:21pm Handsome Harry:

That Walter Murphy record rules at 33 rpm like few records can.
  12:22pm Hacky Netty:

Oh, for fuck's sake - not all covers are funny, some are interesting.
  12:23pm bruceleh:

got culturcide?
  12:23pm glenn:

the shat doing hawkwind? aaaay carumba. does lemmy know about this?
  12:25pm Minnesota Jeff:

  12:26pm Hacky Netty:

This is fucking interesting (bc the night).
  12:27pm BodegaMan:

This is what it sounds like when chickens cry.

(in all seriousness this jun togawa is most excellent)
  12:27pm Ken:

bodega: HA!!

hi everyone
  12:29pm Hacky Netty:

Yo dawg, I heard you like irony, so why don't you put some irony in your irony and play the original "The Warning" by Aynsley Dunbar - everyone'll think it's a cover since Black Sabbath's version is the only one anyone's heard!
  12:29pm DJ KG:

ACK!! i'm not ken! i'm kurt!
  12:30pm Ken:

I hate irony! (and i'm changing my name back to ken!)
  12:31pm Hacky Netty:

Howay! You bloody love irony and you know it.
  12:32pm Hacky Netty:

...or you at least love your hipster misapprehension of irony...
  12:36pm Cecile:

I just love covers whether it's Aretha, The Beatles, The Chocolate Watchband, Television or Me First and the Gimme Gimmes doing them.
  12:38pm bruceleh:

How about a cover from one of those 60's/70's
"not the original stars" lp
  12:40pm Minnesota Jeff:

This is better than AC/DCs version.
  12:41pm Andrea Ku:

There is a Light that Never Goes Out by the Dum Dum Girls ...Im not a fan of Smiths covers but that's nott oo bad!
  12:42pm philthy:

This is incredible.
  12:42pm BodegaMan:

hmmm, I find it curious MN Jeff, you put the Bodyguard Soundtrack in your .gif
  12:43pm Mike East:

@Andrea - My wife and I have been rocking out to that one every Sunday....Bill Kelly has been giving it alot of play
  12:44pm bruceleh:

excuse me!
  12:45pm Cecile:

Oh, come on, Kurt. COME ON!

Yes there are. They play MINE at least.

  12:45pm TJ:

Harsh, man
  12:45pm Cecile:

Ken even played a request of mine this morning!
  12:45pm The Stinky Whistler:

Yeah, right. People can play requests if they want. That's free form.
  12:46pm Minnesota Jeff:

Bodega - I wanted to have a soundtrack, and I didn't have any covers with a woman on it. So, two birds with one stone.
  12:46pm ledzeppelinsux:

Whatever this symphonic disco crap is sux!
  12:46pm Andrea Ku:

as you are, sir, sorry....i am just a sheep today
  12:46pm OozeInTheEar:

Please play Stevie Nicks – Love is Like a River !
  12:46pm The Stinky Whistler:

The rules say not to satisfy listeners, but the show is all about satisfying listeners?
  12:47pm The Stinky Whistler:

You are my new least favorite DJ. Get back to the music.
  12:47pm von Stypp:

I for one do not want to be satisfied Kurt, I want to be surprised, and sent swag.
  12:48pm ledzeppelinsux:

A Fifth of Beethoven should be called a Fifth of Feces
  12:49pm Melissa Drifting:

Please play whatever your devious heart desires!
  12:49pm YesMan:

How can we budget our listening experience if we don't know what's going to be played?
  12:54pm Joe McG:

I love Tragedy. Thanks, Kurt!
  12:57pm Cheri Pi:

Eugene Chadbourne played in our town last night-I missed it but some of my friends opened up for him-they said it was a great time.
  12:57pm von Stypp:

Rake solo!
  12:58pm Cecile:

I also like Gene's version of Petey Pablo's "North Carolina"
  1:00pm kiemzi:

what is this!?!?!
  1:01pm Peanut Gallery:

I love the idea of the "Not Satisfying Listeners Standards and Practices" document...surely Kenny G has read that out loud somewhere.
  1:01pm Peanut Gallery:

The Other Matt!
  1:04pm ledzeppelinsux:

I'd rather listen to this than be force fed Led Zeppelin reruns and Eric Claptelloncamp
  1:19pm bennett4senate:

Ralfi Pagan also does a nice version of Ooh Baby Baby
  1:22pm Handsome Harry:

Kurt, I'd like to make a request....STAY TRUE!! You're killin' it today.
  1:23pm Anti-requester:

Hey people whining about requests, lay off Kurt - it's his birthday!
  1:23pm chris:

Is this Marianne Faithful or Anthony? Same person?
  1:24pm Minnesota Jeff:

Anyone know if Rod Stewart did any odd covers? Early 80's Rod Stewart that is.
  1:24pm Bob McAllister:

I recall seeing Walter Murphy on Wonderama making all those sounds on a synth and was completely befuddled!
  1:24pm chris:

Happy Birthday, Kurt... Have a cover of Beatles' Birthday song?
  1:26pm Nobby Nomates:

Was that a request?
  1:29pm Cecile:

Awesome, I love that Sister Sledge song. And Mark E. Smith doing it? wow.
  1:31pm Adamant:

I refuse to relinquish my right not to request no goddam requesting. Buzzkill!
  1:32pm slugluv1313:

hearing The Fall's version of "Lost in Music," i am reminded of Anita Lane's version too . . . ! (and this Fall version also sounds like there is a bit of No Trend's "Karma Nights" mixed in -- ??!!??)
  1:34pm Minnesota Jeff:

I wonder if anyone ever covered any songs by FREE? Like, you know, by some ugly pop singer.
  1:39pm david from ks:

,,,,,yyyyoooowwweeeee nothing like a good cover to puta a new shine ona good composition,,,,,,,,,,,
  1:46pm travis:

how about miles davis' time after time?
  1:51pm PMD:

I must say I'm enjoying this whole cover theme. No requests though.
  1:54pm Steve L:

I request another intriguing cover to follow the one currently playing.
  1:55pm Melissa Drifting:

  1:55pm DJ KG:

i hate intrigue
  1:58pm Das:

That song had me laughing like a lunatic in my little cubicle.
  2:02pm kiemzi:

  2:06pm BodegaMan:

is it really DJ KG's birthday? maybe that's why he don't want to be bothered.
  2:07pm Frightened Little Cubicle:

I'm calling the closed ward to come get you, RIGHT NOW.
  2:08pm slugluv1313:

wasn't yesterday Mr. Minotaur's birthday??? HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, *whichever* day it is!!!!! :)
  2:09pm chris:

F*** yeah, Diamanda, sing it!
  2:09pm DJ KG:

today is not my birthday. be as mean as you want. i can take it.
  2:10pm Frightened Little Cubicle:

And they are coming for you too, DJKG. You're welcome.
  2:12pm Parq:

Wow, that was some version of "Long Black Veil" (although I still prefer Monica's). More happy birthdays on ya, Kurt.
  2:12pm DJ KG:

ultimately i hold the power. you can type, but i can play a half dozen versions of the same song over and over!
  2:13pm Cecile:

why the antagonism? I guess i"m not getting the joke
  2:14pm von Stypp:

  2:15pm DJ KG:

oh, i'm not really antagonistic. i just think it's funny that people took me seriously earlier and got all mad at me. or maybe it's funny that i took them seriously.
  2:16pm Cecile:

Ah, I get it.
Just a little slow today.
  2:16pm Frightened Little Cubicle:

Let the nice men in the white coats in when they buzz, dear DJKG

  2:16pm chris:

well, some people take *karaoke* seriously... so ya never know... speaking off, this show's kind of like being at a karaoke bar after so much soju you can no longer walk and everyone sounds *awesome*
  2:19pm Minnesota Jeff:

All I am mad at you about is that you couldn't find any AMERICAN Brass to play, but Canadian Brass? Love it or leave it!!!
  2:22pm Group Karaoke:

In the psych lockup, we sing different lyrics to the "Come Together" melody. The song parody title is "Come Apart". You'll enjoy it.
  2:23pm Cecile:

MN Jeff, what is the album with the clothed band members on it? I know the name, just can't remember it.
  2:24pm Peanut Gallery:

Halfway to half a dozen Come Togethers!
  2:24pm 12539:

I'm enjoying this set without any irony.
  2:25pm 12539:

(@Cecile, do you mean the Aphex Twin cover?)
  2:25pm DJ KG:

good job, 12539!
  2:25pm Pat in Philadelphia:

Don't forget Syl Johnson's "Come Together". His version rips!
  2:26pm Cecile:

Yes! Yes. Couldn't remember who did it.
  2:27pm Cecile:

Tina rules all.
  2:27pm von Stypp:

Aer-o-smith! Aer-o-smith!
  2:27pm BT:

Butthole Surfers too
  2:27pm Peanut Gallery:

I can still type!
  2:27pm DJ KG:

... or can i just call you 125?
  2:27pm DJ KG:

when did the surfers do it?
  2:28pm Group Karaoke:

That's Mr. 39 to you. bub.
  2:28pm Cecile:

I have to say I don't like Come Together much except when Tina does it.
  2:29pm Minnesota Jeff:

The albums with no titles on the covers are Aphex Twin - Come to Daddy EP, and Led Zepplin - Presence
  2:29pm Matt from Springfield:

I have this one!
I've listened the past hour, and you got a FANTASTIC selection of covers KG!
  2:29pm Dr. Bootygrabber:

That's Doctor Bootygrabber to you. I don't know you well enough for you to use my first name.
  2:30pm Cecile:

I knew Presence. I own it, but I don't own the Aphex, but it looked familiar.
  2:31pm Minnesota Jeff:

Its children with their faces replaced by Richard D. James'
  2:31pm Parq:

<spit take> Sarah Vaughn??
  2:31pm Nobby Nomates:

Cecile you should check out Michael Hedges version:

  2:31pm 12539:

@Cecile: But do you have the Orleans?
  2:31pm Cecile:

Ooh, like the sarah vaughn one too.

I remember now. I
  2:32pm Pat in Philadelphia:

Kurt this set is proving to me how boring the Beatles version is. Nice work!
  2:32pm J J:

I'm going to be thinking about "toe jam football" for the rest of the day.
  2:32pm Cecile:

NO. But I remembered it, partly because it had the title on it, and partly because I saw it 1,000,000 times in cutout bins
  2:34pm channeling Clay Pigeon:

Aw fess us Cecile, you know you have that Orleans LP stored in a special place.
  2:35pm DJ KG:

whoa! nobby! i totally forgot about the hedges version. nice.
  2:36pm Cecile:

Yes, a small dark part of my mind that I've tried to clean out for 30 years and it never works.
  2:36pm dorky dancing:

Even after all these covers I still don't get the rhythm of this song.
  2:37pm BT:

Think the Buttholes did it as a 7" for a fan club thing. Its up here:
  2:37pm clyde stubblefield:

Wow- I remember these guys - nasty on yhe NYC scene- later on I played w/ Kelvyn Bell
  2:37pm Das:

Ahh, the beatles are killing me
  2:37pm Minnesota Jeff:

Isn't the front and center dude on the cover of that Orleans album a senator or congressman from NY now?
  2:38pm Cecile:

Yes. John Hall.
  2:39pm Cecile:

People mocked his concept album about sustainable energy "Power" back in the day, but the theme is now surprisingly prescient. The music still sucks, though.
  2:40pm Party Poop:

endurance test!
  2:40pm Pat in Philadelphia:

  2:40pm Minnesota Jeff:

This seems like this would be someones WFMU DJ premium, a whole album of Come Together covers.
  2:40pm Sean in Iowa:

The Butthole Surfers version is also on The Hole Truth... and Nothing Butt which I think is a collection of 7" tracks and bootlegs.
  2:41pm von Stypp:

How many Come Togethers are in this jar?
  2:41pm Ike:

I just tuned in at Vaughan, but so far I still prefer the original.
  2:41pm Matt:

Not enough
  2:42pm Premie:

I'm done...
  2:43pm von Stypp:

  2:43pm BodegaMan:

I'm kinda tunning them out a this point, except I always seem to hear the 1+1+1 math lesson part.
  2:43pm Tim Serpas:

Aerosmith... or Future Villain Band?
  2:43pm J J:

  2:43pm von Stypp:

Mi-chael Jack-son! Mi-chael Jack-son!
  2:43pm John Lennon:

"Shoot Me".
  2:44pm Cecile:

I think that 'smith's cover is decent, but it got tarnished because it was in a horrible movie.
  2:44pm Das:

You win, I'm going to go sit on the toilet until this barrage has ended
  2:44pm Peanut Gallery:

I always hear the "grooooving up slowly".
  2:44pm Cecile:

I listened to "Loose" 450 times on Kenny G's show. I can take this...a little bit longer.
  2:45pm Cecile:

for me it's "mojo filter"
  2:45pm Sean in Iowa:

My favorite so far has been Tina Turner. Aerosmith is the only one I've actually heard before.
  2:45pm Ike:

Is it "toe jam football" or "toe jam footfall?" Sounds like "footfall."
  2:45pm von Stypp:

Cecile: were they all different versions, or the same cut?
  2:47pm Cecile:

it was all the versions from the Funhouse box. Minor variations, and after 3 hours, the take that was on the album was still the best.
  2:48pm kiemzi:

kurt. why are you doing this to me.
  2:48pm Sean in Iowa:

When I Put A Spell On You was playing I was imagininig a whole show that was covers of that.
  2:48pm Melissa Drifting:

This span of "Come Together" is fucking awful. Every time the next one comes on, I giggle maniacally. My coworkers must think...well, they already know I'm nuts.
  2:48pm Herbert:

I remember the Loose show. That was funny. And educational.
  2:49pm Parq:

Has this been a DJ premiium yet? If not, it should be.
  2:49pm Cecile:

Herbert, I know. I miss Kenny G. Even though it was a love-hate relationship.
  2:49pm Matt:

I'm totally into this. I'm not saying it's to my credit or anything.
  2:50pm chris:

This is why FMU gets my money!
  2:51pm von Stypp:

Kenny G lost me when he played a whole show of somebody reading tax code.
  2:51pm Timothy Leary:

"Come Together" was supposed to be my campaign theme.
  2:51pm Herbert:

Yeah. - that's a good way of putting it.
  2:51pm Das:

Thank you Irwin
  2:52pm Lou:

Irwin's on...yay!!! time to hit the archives!!!
  2:53pm von Stypp:

Low, Lou
  2:54pm Melissa Drifting:

SLICING GRANDPA. Best cover of the day!
  2:54pm PMD:

Oh what a great name! Slicing Grandpa! Is that a chainsaw in the background? would be appropriate if all their songs had a chainsaw in it.
  2:54pm Handsome Harry:

I didn't know how Kurt was possibly going to top Harvey Averne's version of "Come Together," but he did it. My god this is wonderful.
  2:54pm Minnesota Jeff:

Worked for Jackal!
  2:55pm Pat in Philadelphia:

Holy Christ this is horrifying!
  2:55pm Sean in Iowa:

+1 for Minnesota Jeff
  2:55pm Cecile:

I love this song and this is a great cover.
  2:55pm Ike:

YES. Slicing Grandpa. Yes. Thank you. Yes.
  2:55pm chris:

Can't imagine living through the day without hearing this California Dreaming cover... Gracie, Maestro Kurt!
  2:56pm Pat in Philadelphia:

I know you've already fulfilled my one request but how about one more? More Slicing Grandpa, please!
  2:56pm Sean in Iowa:

Oh and +100 for Mr. Gottschalk
  2:58pm von Stypp:

Wait what about the Upsetters?
  2:58pm Handsome Harry:

Now that right there was great f***king show. Hats off, Kurt. Hats f***ing off.
  2:59pm PMD:

Shoot the dying cat. Kidding of course. Love you irwin
  3:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Repeated "Come Together"s aside, I liked this covers show!
  3:00pm 12539:

Thanks, Kurt (+ Minnesota Jeff for the art).
