  9:53am kat330:

And we enjoyed Shrunken Planet prior to this, too. Guess Saturday mornings are appointment FMU for me.
  9:54am annie:

good morning everyone!!!
  9:55am paul:

wfmu is the reason I never get anything done Saturday mornings.
  9:55am paul:

Hi annie
  9:56am kat330:

Music is a great soundtrack for cleaning chores.
  9:58am paul:

Then I need another excuse :)
  9:59am kat330:

Another excuse? Commenting here. :)
  10:00am paul:

  10:02am Jasperodus:

It's a digital world. 0010110101.
  10:07am paul:


so called fr. a popular name for gin in So. Africa where it was formerly sold in square bottles
  10:17am kat330:

Sorta reminiscent of "I'd love to teach the world to sing" (Coke song).
  10:21am Jasperodus:

"I wonder," did you mean "I'd LIKE to teach"...?
  10:22am kat330:

Oh, right. Just a snippet of Ronettes melody that sounded like that old commercial.
  10:30am Robert:

Was I still dreaming, or did I wake up briefly in the middle of the night and head the Old Coger make a prediction for 2012 on "Coast to Coast AM"? I just aroused myself enough to become aware of the end of the call, which Ian Punnett decried for its antisemitic content.
  10:31am Robert:

"hear", "Codger"
  10:32am Reality_Check:

Irwin is the Old Codger. I kinda doubt Irwin is antisemitic.

You were pretty out of it, as you say. Or making a weird "joke".
  10:33am Robert:

I wouldn't doubt Irwin's ability to play ant-ANYTHING.
  10:36am paul:

Jimi had a slight return
  10:38am paul:

"Voodoo Chile, a Slight Return"
  10:45am Sean in Bristol, UK:

Good afternoon everyone, Happy New Year to one and all

Loving the weekly Sandy. Thanks Bob. I am kind of on a kick myself. Check out my vinyl mix blog: www.platterplaylists.wordpress.com. I am only 25 so I am not as well versed as some of you... yet.
