Listener comments!

  9:23pm 12539:

Happily present.
  9:24pm Irwin:

Pseu, do you mind if I re-air your sets but LEAVE OUT THE DAVID GUETTA?
  9:24pm Tom ( In Gravesend ):

ahhh the weekend and the Hook finally !!!... good evening Pseu and one and all !!!
  9:25pm pseu:

everything's better with Usher.
  9:27pm Irwin:

Your most egregious content error — ever.
  9:27pm Elwyn:

Ha ha! I've got to agree with Irwin. It's a good song but I hear it every time I go to the gym on the crappy mainstream Channel V.

It was GREAT to hear Katrina & The Waves again. I fondly remember my childhood library had audio cassettes in the 80s and I loved that album.
Coincidentally, I first heard Pretenders via the mediocre "Get Close" from the same library and finally bought it on CD yesterday (as part of a 5 pack of albums with card covers).
  9:31pm pseu:

THAT opinion, Irwin is why you could never curate this show. You asked for it.
  9:32pm pseu:

some of our most legendary songwriters wrote "maudlin" content.
  9:35pm Irwin:

I hereby declare my Weds. afternoon program a Guetta-Free Zone 4ever!
  9:36pm glenn:

if you're talking about ben drinken, his schtick gets old very fast.
  9:37pm john:

I'm pretty sure I've never in my life heard a show where I loved every single record played on it. I'm reasonably sure, however, that if I insisted on that, I'd 1) never hear any music and 2) be a douche.
  9:40pm eastvanhalen:

I was a cheerleader in high school, but I wasn't popular at all, which means I love maudlin pop beyond reason. Now I'm having a massive Eric Carmen craving.
  9:40pm glenn:

the ten commandments can be boiled down to one : don't be a douche.
  9:41pm Elwyn:

I went to an all boy's school. It had no cheerleaders and I became f**ked up for life. BUT I didn't have to listen to pop in high school.

Having said that, I'd listen to anything except nu-metal, Christian rock, Coldplay, John Mayer and Paramore to spend time with a cheerleader.
  9:41pm glenn:

were you a goth cheerleader?
  9:45pm eastvanhalen:

I don't think they existed when I was in high school.
  9:45pm Elwyn:

Did you ever dress as a zombie cheerleader?
  9:46pm glenn:

i don't even think my high school had cheer leaders, but it's been a very long time. cheerleading isn't a very big deal here in canada.
  9:46pm pseu:

Christian Rock is the Holy Grail of current Pop Content right now.
I'm just looking for a more secular song for the show.
Big Star was a Christian Pop band by my calculation.
  9:47pm PB:

@glenn, I think you mentioned before that you live in toronto. what high school did you go to?
  9:49pm glenn:

actually, i went to high school in milton. milton district high.
  9:49pm Chop Scott:

I'm not the kind to participate in Facebook, but I am a loyal and true listener! Again, thanks--appreciate you...There's my like.
  9:51pm pseu:

thnxxx chop scott <3
  9:52pm eastvanhalen:

That's me in the upper-right corner, circa 1983. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=135964560706&l=d47baf01c4
  9:54pm pseu:

we have a super-cutie on the board!!!
  9:54pm Crochet Wonderwoman:

I know what I do with my hook. What do you do with yours?
  9:56pm glenn:

what pseu said.
  9:57pm eastvanhalen:

Ha! Aw, shucks, thanks. Ah, to be 16 again (never, thank god, never).
  9:58pm glenn:

of course, you've outed yourself. stephanie.
  10:00pm Websie:

I saw Ash play when that rekkid came out.
  10:01pm eastvanhalen:

Yeah, my grasp of security culture has always been kind of weak. Meanwhile, I find myself liking this tune.
  10:02pm pseu:

@Websie -- I HATE U. (sob)...why won't they tour the USA?
  10:04pm glenn:

drug convictions? links to al qaeda?
  10:05pm Websie:

Pseu, I lost track of them after they became legal.
  10:08pm pseu:

they've been kept very much alive thru this show...I'm monitering them in the usual virtual outlets -- currently touring for the slobbering brit unemployed with the US fans begging them to come here.
  10:11pm glenn:

ash AND cheerleaders. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gW8mEMqiNhc
  10:17pm 12539:

Um, is that Martin Newell song BEFORE the Hurricane? (you have me looking for it now.)
  10:17pm eastvanhalen:

That's your pop video heaven, right there.
  10:19pm Websie:

let's blackmail Ash to show up at ATP 2012
  10:19pm pseu:

BEFORE, yes.
  10:20pm 12539:

  10:23pm eastvanhalen:

This Sheryl Crow song is insanely pretty. Off to ask google about it.
  10:26pm glenn:

more lindsay buckingham tonight?
  10:36pm glenn:

trying to avoid love in a pop song is like trying to avoid losing for the chicago cubs.
  10:45pm glenn:

see, that's the kind of thing that would ensure a second date for me. she's clumsy AND she swears like a sailor? fuckin' a.
  10:55pm eastvanhalen:

Ha, I have a 2001 A Space Odyssey klutz story, too, but it involves a $40 glass of wine, a lot of broken glass, and a horrified restaurant.
  11:00pm glenn:

40$ glass of wine? yipes.
  11:01pm m l e:

where's devo ?
  11:02pm eastvanhalen:

A friend's elaborate birthday dinner at a fancy San Francisco restaurant. I'd come directly from a flight from Vancouver and was a touch frazzled. Hilarity ensued.
  11:03pm glenn:

grow-opcouver will do that to you.
  11:06pm eastvanhalen:

To lots of people, but not to me. I'm that oddity: a Vancouverite who doesn't like weed. It's pretty much more acceptable than cigarettes here. Weird city.
  11:08pm glenn:

have you been to vij's? apparently it's the best indian food known to man.
  11:12pm Retard_Riot:

YES!! lindsey!!!!! !!! !!!!!
  11:13pm eastvanhalen:

I've been to the more casual place that he runs next door, and it was fabulous. (And there's your Buckingham. Thanks, Pseu!)
  11:14pm Chris in Philly:

Pseu, wow, Lindsey obsession....but always sounds great. "IF" i would every get married..."IF"...this would be blared at reception. love it!
  11:17pm glenn:

thanks pseu.
  11:20pm glenn:

did you ever see cub play, evh? i harbour a strange affection for my chinchilla. ummmm, that's a song. pervs.
  11:23pm eastvanhalen:

Yeah, they used to play a fair bit, though honestly they weren't my favourite band.
  11:23pm john:

Oh great, guess who's crying already...
  11:24pm pseu:

  11:25pm bex:

  11:28pm pseu:

please. I will not be playing your request. Get over it.
  11:30pm pseu:

Uh....NO I'll not be playing your annoying request.
  11:31pm pseu:

I'll bet you own all of their albums.
  11:32pm Manolo:

Oh man !!! this is my favorite song of classic Radiohead
  11:32pm pseu:

BEX------------Here's a POWER WEEPIE
  11:33pm pseu:

but john hates it, sooooo.....
  11:33pm bex:

  11:34pm eastvanhalen:

I need unrequited love so this song can hurt more.
  11:34pm Manolo:

i'm singing out loud already
  11:35pm pseu:

oh, teknologie....
  11:36pm john:

My issue is the band, in reality and concept, not the song, which was pretty. And speaking of bands, I once had a friend who had the complete works of the Wedding Present, which he talked about more or less incessantly, when he wasn't hyping the Blue Aeroplanes. He once told me he didn't like a certain record, which fades into the mists of memory, because it "wasn't alternative enough." Message ends.
  11:44pm eastvanhalen:

I really love the way the feel of the playlist has changed with the season, Pseu.
  11:46pm 12539:

I was just going to say, I'm glad to have the show lasting into Winter, but can you make the weather a little warmer too?
  11:47pm pseu:

thanks you guys. It's gonna be a long hard one. Winter I mean.
  11:47pm Destroit:

Agree. Great show. Sad that you think my requests suck.
  11:48pm pseu:

No, it's your insistence about it. And cursing out another listener.You're being a douche.
  11:48pm James in ATL:

Great show! Now I will spend the week replaying it and searching for records by several of the artists on the show. Thanks Pseu - Have a great week.
  11:52pm pseu:

thanks, James.
  11:53pm G:

I was touring out of town relatives around Manhattan till just now. What a saint I am.

I detect signs of mucho deletions here, w00t! will catch up on the archived music subsequently. the music is more imporant than the comments, after all.
  11:59pm Destroit:

My bad, I thought respectable radio stations take requests,
  11:59pm DJ School:

They take requests. They don't take crap.
  11:59pm bex:

sob (with happiness)
  12:01am eastvanhalen:

Oh, that's a motto! "WFMU: We Take Requests. We Don't Take Crap." Wanna bumper sticker...
  12:01am diggity:

Did someone say fire hydrant?
  12:02am DJ School:

They take them and file them in the circular file
  12:02am eastvanhalen:

WFMU: We Take Requests Under Advisement. And We Don't Take Crap. Better?
  12:03am ADM:

Sinner's Crossroads takes requests.
You dissing Kevin Nutt Pseu?
  12:03am eastvanhalen:

"We Take Polite Pleas For Lindsey Buckingham"?
  12:03am Ike:

When I first started listening in the mid-90s, I think NOBODY accepted requests on FMU, *EVER*. (Well, probably.) I'm quite surprised now when occasionally certain DJs will fulfill playlist-comment-submitted requests.
  12:05am eastvanhalen:

"WFMU: Stop Begging -- It's Unseemly."
  12:06am 12539:

There's a difference between a suggestion and an order.
  12:08am Destroit:

I'm a hick. we call in, we talk to the curators of the show.... It's interactive.
  12:10am G:

I've never made a request here, unless the host requested listener suggestions on the comments board. It's freeform. Why do I want to tell the host what to do? Commenting suffices as input. Insistent requests are annoying to other listeners.
  12:13am Destroit:

Hmm, you might be right g.
  12:13am ADM:

What a bunch of sycophants.
  12:13am G:

That's what they all say. :-)
  12:14am ADM:

Where's my "Sweet Home Alabama?"
  11:17pm G:

Finally catching up on this show. Seems as if when Pseu fell, it sounded a lot like a mic break. :-)
