Listener comments!

  5:38pm jk:

I'm lingering here before the show but will have to leave when you go on the air. Just wanted to say hi
  5:39pm listener james from westwood:

hey hey jk, and hello to all early birds roosting on the tree!
  5:39pm Doug Schulkind:

Hi JK! You're gonna miss one helluva cumbia bash. Roll on, Colombia, roll on!
  5:40pm Doug Schulkind:

Oy oy, L James from W! Hang on to that branch!
  5:42pm listener james from westwood:

I may lurch, but I've got a perch!
  5:42pm jk:

I am prepared to miss the live event but catch the rerun tomorrow morning. Tuesdays are my bowling night :)
  5:44pm PMD:

I missed Tony's show, alas... will have to visit via archive. Doug I'll support you silently, but with dollars
  5:45pm listener james from westwood:

I need a night for something. Or more properly, I need the something, after my regular poker game dried up last year.
  5:46pm Doug Schulkind:

There is an old-school bowling alley just down the street from me here in Pittsburgh. Good clean fun (hey, get your mind outta the gutter!)
  5:47pm jk:

but we do candlepin here in Boston. still old school, might be older, in fact
  5:48pm jk:

but no cleaner, come to think of it
  5:49pm listener james from westwood:

I miss bowling. There are still some of the old classic lanes in northern NJ. Fries taste better there.
  5:57pm ndbob:

  5:58pm Doug Schulkind:

  6:02pm Carmichael:

Good God, y'all. Soul Brother #1!
  6:03pm Doug Schulkind:

Top of the evening, Carmichael.
  6:04pm listener james from westwood:

  6:05pm Carmichael:

Besides this happenin' music, I'm about 30 miuntes away from discount micro-brew night! Hooray for Tuesdays!
  6:06pm ndbob:

hello carmichael!
  6:06pm listener james from westwood:

how does it get better than that?
  6:06pm J J:

  6:06pm Doug Schulkind:

First person who can translate "el sapo" into English gets to make a pledge! ¡Arriba!
  6:07pm listener james from westwood:

looks like the total on the front page just passed 20%, but more's always welcome!
  6:08pm Carmichael:

Hiya Bob! How's NoDak treating you? (It IS North Dakota, right?)
  6:09pm ndbob:

yep... nice and warm here . 82 right now
  6:11pm listener james from westwood:

hell, that's warmer than northern nj! wore a jacket for the first time this season today!
  6:12pm Doug Schulkind:

If you pledge a hundred smackers to WFMU, you get my premium CD from the last marathon plus an extra CD of remixes of Sun Ra tunes done by WFMUers! (plus lota other crap). Donate via the pledge box atop the playlist.
  6:12pm Richard from Venezuela:

Billos caracas boys. Venezuelan classic!!!

Greetings Doug and all the listeners.
  6:13pm Doug Schulkind:

The pleasure is mine, Richard!
  6:13pm J J:

I'm trying to cancel my monthly donations to the UNHCR so I can have more to give WFMU. To hell with refugees!
  6:13pm ndbob:

hello richard!
  6:14pm Richard from Venezuela:

Hello ndbob
  6:16pm Hugo:

Purely by accident, received in my office today two cds of altogether 91 cumbia tunes from my local Colombia connection, all the way from Colombia. All traditional stuff.. Nice ... had to break loose from all them tunes to listen to the show.
  6:16pm Doug Schulkind:

I don't see any refugees recording any Sun Ra remixes for you, JJ! (Ew, I feel awful about that last crack. Of course, I could've delete it. Now I feel even worse.)
  6:17pm glenn:

just wondering - is ricky ricardo's music any good?
  6:17pm ndbob:

some actually is glen
  6:18pm glenn:

hey drummer, arhoolie's having a huge clear out sale.
  6:18pm Doug Schulkind:

He was actually a helluva singer. Babalú is no joke. That was some serious Afro-Cuban music.
  6:19pm ndbob:

  6:19pm listener james from westwood:

As shipments from Colombian connections go, that's gotta be the swingin'est, and the most DEA-friendly, Hugo!
  6:20pm ndbob:

sorry i left out that second n glenn:)
  6:20pm glenn:

  6:20pm Doug Schulkind:

Jesús H. Christ, does it get ANY better than this?
  6:21pm glenn:

hat's no problem, ndbob.
  6:21pm Alf From Upstate:

I pledged. Will someone else make contribution to get Doug up over 4%?
  6:21pm listener james from westwood:

i hit up you and tony today; gonna drop some clams on amanda tomorrow. the rest of the schedule will be my on-air roulette table!
  6:21pm J J:

It's okay. Angelina Jolie is hard at work contributing more to those refugee causes than I ever could. She probably has no idea the plight of WFMU'ers around the globe. Big star for the big problems, little guy for the little problems (A/C for one).
  6:21pm ndbob:

this entire collection is great
  6:22pm øשl:

for shame nbob! m'lord dug, this show is like the greatest thing since like... last weeks sho! blazing
  6:22pm Hugo:

Those two Peruvian comps are great!
  6:23pm glenn:

i will defend angelina pretty strongly. she's a really good actress, and she puts her money where her mouth is.
  6:23pm øשl:

how can i work when owl i wanna do is dance?
  6:24pm Doug Schulkind:

From an ol' cumbia lover like you øשl, I'll put that praise in my back pocket.
  6:25pm glenn:

i'm diggin' los dinamiteros.
  6:27pm glenn:
  6:29pm Doug Schulkind:

The marinara aroma that is bubbling up from the kitchen below here smells crazy like Colombia weed. It's gotta be the music.
  6:30pm Hugo:

A good one for further exploration:
  6:32pm J J:

hey, øשl. do you have a blog called सølγ שаябlɛş? If so, that's one of my favorites.
  6:32pm listener james from westwood:

mmmmm ... marinara. gonna have a chili aroma here in a few minutes. my last batch of frozen. gonna have to make a new batch this weekend.
  6:36pm Doug Schulkind:

Love to see another donation added to the till above. Thanks to everyone who's pledged so far, across the board, to WFMU. I really want the show and especially GIVE THE DRUMMER RADIO to make a good showing during this here fund-raiser.
  6:42pm Doug Schulkind:

Boom! 2 percent Boom! Gracias amigos y amigas!
  6:45pm Doug Schulkind:

Get my ass up to 10% for the hour and I'll be muy alegre!!
  6:56pm ndbob:

this has all lifted my spirits a bit:).
  6:57pm listener james from westwood:

see, there ya go!
  6:57pm Doug Schulkind:

Glad to help, ndbob. I suppose you could say that's what I'm here for.
  7:02pm ndbob:

  7:02pm listener james from westwood:
