Listener comments!

  9:07pm 12539:

It's got my ears and attention.
  9:08pm glenn:

  9:09pm James in ATL:

Yeah FRIDAY! Hello Pseu - great start

  9:10pm buddy:

  9:10pm other david:

beautiful twee ash, 1977 an album of my teens, young love and all that cheese
  9:11pm SteveL:

Missed Sparks and Ramones? Serves me right for feeding the dogs.
  9:13pm Parq:

Love it all so far.
  9:13pm glenn:

who did you feed them to?
  9:15pm G:

the neighbor's cats
  9:18pm SteveL:

Those cats are mean. What the hell else am I supposed to do? Cops don't care.
  9:18pm Irwin:

I thought this sounded familiar.
  9:19pm Cats:

Can i haz dogmeet? LOLZ
  9:19pm other david:

  9:20pm G:

Apparently Irwin is implying that he and Pseu steal, I mean borrow, great tuneage ideas from one another.
  9:21pm slazenger:

I want to clog dance!
  9:23pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Pseu! Glenn L and I are doing the usual: enjoying yer show while we eat dinner. Much love to you from us.
  9:23pm other david:


although the day pseu plays Amanda, the internet and frequency modulation itself, may implode
  9:24pm glenn:

i think it's a faux irwin, to be honest.
Avatar 9:24pm pseu:

thanks, Wendy. luv to u 2 too...
  9:25pm slazenger:

Can I come to the station and clog dance to the music? Or I can clog dance as you talk on the microphone!
  9:26pm slazenger:

I don't even know how to clog dance, but for you Pseu I would learn REAL fast!
  9:26pm other david:

if you have to ask..
  9:29pm PiLA:

I hear something of a vibe
  9:30pm other david:

I hear something of an awesome...

rather excellent show
  9:32pm slazenger:

Look. I'm clogging. tokka tokk tokka tok tok toka toka tok tok toka tokk
  9:34pm G:

Could be faux; Pseu would know from the hidden email and/or IP info.

But if Irwin-Pseu and Pseu-Irwin comments are faux it's a rather elaborate thing, b/c if so a faux Irwin and phaux Pseu have been commenting about borrowing songs on each others's playlists for several months now.
  9:35pm PB:

I used to wear Slazenger tennis shirts back in the 70s.
  9:35pm slazenger:

  9:36pm PB:

Very cool. I also used to play with Slazenger tennis balls, they were the best.
  9:37pm slazenger:

  9:37pm other david:

I used to be the kid who got sniggered at because I used a WOODEN SLAZENGER TENNIS RACKET when playing on the street, versus the new fangled aluminium shenanigans.

It's just not cricket.
  9:38pm G:

it's post-pantyhose friday evening
  9:39pm PB:

Do you still have any old wood racquets? I don't, I used to break them all on the court, but my dad still has an old Pancho Gonzalez wood racket. The thing weighs a ton.
  9:39pm slazenger:

  9:40pm G:

how many drinks so far, slaz? i wanna see how close my guess is :-)
  9:40pm James in ATL:

I love Power Pop
  9:42pm other david:

@PB: I'm sure there's one in the shed somewhere, as enraged as one became, I was still self aware enough to realise as a kid I had the dexterity of a one legged giraffe on acid, so never broke a racket, the racket was innocent
  9:43pm glenn:

one legged giraffe on acid?
  9:43pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I'd totally trade a big wedge of cheese for the chance to see a one-legged giraffe on acid. Thanks for the wonderful mental image, Other David.
  9:44pm other david:

it's not pretty, it's.. not.. pretty
  9:44pm JayBe:

Are you dragging a finger on the record, or is it warped?
  9:46pm glenn:

giraffes don't eat cheese.
  9:46pm slazenger:

The music is okay, you are hearing the "Pseu Effect" Its the magic that Pseu sprinkles over her listeners.
  9:46pm JayBe:

I eat cheese.
  9:47pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Did the giraffe take the acid on purpose, or did someone dose the poor thing? because that's where I'd have to draw the line. Ya know, animal cruelty and what-not.
  9:47pm glenn:

you wanna come up with a whole bunch, now that might be some incentive for them.
  9:47pm Van in DC:

Goodness. Of COURSE giraffes eat cheetahs! Or get eaten by Swiss cheese. I forget which.
  9:48pm glenn:

sorry. whole bunch of leaves.
  9:48pm JayBe:

Sprinkles? Or hooks up to a fire hydrant and sprays with reckless abandon?
  9:48pm slazenger:

(Mmmmm, cheese giraffes)
  9:49pm other david:


the point is, it made a mistake. the career on the professional trampoline circuit was ill advised.

as were other davids attempts at playing tennis
  9:49pm slazenger:

Are you suggesting that we're being hosed?
  9:50pm slazenger:

  9:51pm JayBe:

Ooh. No. But I like that inference. I using that in the future.
  9:51pm other david:


in other news, this bettie serveert track is lovely
  9:51pm glenn:

lots of shouting going on tonight , peeps.
  9:51pm PB:

Is it just me or does this singer sound a lot like Lucinda Williams?
  9:52pm JayBe:

Hook. Get it?
  9:52pm other david:

@glenn, but good humoured shouting, GOD DAMNIT
  9:52pm Van in DC:

The average giraffe is so under-appreciated. I mean, they all stick their neck out for all of us and we just seldom thank them. I mean....cheese!
  9:52pm glenn:

i think it's you.
  9:53pm slazenger:

Lucinda, if Lucinda was a guy. Oh the song prior. Yes, Lucinda has the hottest voice.
  9:53pm other david:

cheesus christ
  9:53pm Van in DC:

I have a friend in Cheeses!
  9:54pm JayBe:

@van: thanks for that post. I needed a good laugh.
  9:54pm slazenger:

"YOU Blew it up! Damn you all, damn you all to hell!"
  9:55pm slazenger:

  9:55pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I have a bumper sticker on my fridge from a cheesemaker. it says "Honk if you love cheeses."

  9:56pm Van in DC:

I totally blame other david for setting me off :)
  9:56pm slazenger:

(Just a couple of Charlton Heston screaming)
  9:56pm JayBe:

  9:57pm slazenger:

  9:57pm other david:

I have it, from totally reliable KGB informants, that Wendy is actually allergic to cheese and was once engaged in a secret CIA plan to destroy all dairy products by 2013
  9:57pm JayBe:

Well, I guess I owe you and other David a beer.
  9:58pm slazenger:

"Behold! The Hand of the LORD!"
  9:58pm other david:

In other news, I'm loving this show pseu, apologies for being all over the place
  9:58pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Other David, I hope you didn't pay any money for that information! And if you did, I'll send you my PayPal email because I would like to sell you a very lovely bridge. Good price, just for you!
  9:59pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!'
  9:59pm JayBe:

david, not David
  10:00pm PB:

We seem to have entered 70s movie mode.
  10:00pm Tom from Gravesend Bklyn !!:

.. Loves coming home to the tunes ,,, after a day of all pure delight,, fog, then rain ,, then sun then the beach, then the wind the sunset the almost cradle shaped tilted crescent moon ,, ahhh .. and now the Tunes !! Happy weekend to Pseu ! and all in WFMU Land !!
  10:01pm slazenger:

  10:01pm glenn:

but wendy, if i do that, i'll be yelling into my neighbour's bathroom window, and she'll call the cops, and it'll just be bad all around.
  10:01pm other david:

Wendy del Formaggio: you're up against powerful forces here, powerful cheesey soviet forces. we've bugged your fromage frais, your swiss cheese, your cheddar... the secrets will out!
  10:02pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I love your weather/nature report, Tom. It woulda been a good day for the beach, at least to look at it. Happy weekend to you, too! Yay for Pseu and her tunes!
  10:02pm slazenger:

Sayyy Cheese!
  10:03pm slazenger:

great song
  10:03pm glenn:

would a porcelain raft actually float?
  10:04pm poreclain raft salesperson:

  10:05pm JayBe:

If it had ballast, yes.
  10:05pm slazenger:

No but I've made a few rafts that have floated in porcelain!
  10:05pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Other David, your failed Communist state doesn't scare me. I have the power of rennet on my side. SHAZAM! Look out for the enzymes harvested from the fourth stomach of an unweaned calf! They're gonna GIT YOU.
  10:05pm glenn:

what's your commish, prs?
  10:06pm JayBe:

As long as you don't run aground in Italy.
  10:10pm other david & the league of vegetarian states:



We shall fight you on the yoghurt, we shall fight on the ice cream, we shall fight in the cheddar and in the fromage, we shall fight in the feta; we shall never surrender!
Avatar 10:12pm pseu:

I'd like to respond to G: I don't take things from Irwin's playlist. Ever. I don't get to listen to his program as often as I would like. He has told everyone here that he lifts things from mine. Were I to do the same, I would certainly say so.
  10:12pm slazenger:

Youz people are more warped then the hull of a beached cruise ship. (Bless the souls of those lost) Goodnight my friends. Message boarded out, up at 4:40 am. I'll be listening to the Monarch of the Hook. ALL HAIL THE PSEU!
  10:13pm other david & the league of vegetarian states:

goodnight my wooden bedecked tennis racket friend
  10:13pm JayBe:

Bye slaz.
  10:15pm other david:

the doleful lions track was rather excellent
  10:19pm JayBe:

As a southern transplant, I have to say peeps up here are plenty friendly. Everyone told me folks would be rude. I beg to differ.
  10:31pm JayBe:

I hope you didn't name it Christine.
  10:32pm JayBe:

And then you hit a hook. AAavhhhh
  10:33pm PB:

Sounds like you need to play some car-related tunes but please, please do not play anything by The Cars or Bruce Springsteen.
  10:34pm Susie Chapstick:

I heard that last week. I was doing a buddah prayer for you. I love your selection of music but I hope you get a new car. By the way what was wrong with it? I rely on public transportation myself 'bcause of health problems. But I'll give you a nice girly kiss on your face cheek just to get you by. Moi! Are you the DJ that plays occasional French pop! Oui! Oui! Oui! Mon cherie petrus!
  10:34pm JayBe:

Amen, PB
  10:35pm G:

Sorry, was on a phone call and offpage. In reply to Pseu: So if that was the real Irwin on comments early in the show , then he was just messing with you. Very naughty of him. So unlike him to be a tease.
  10:36pm other david:

here's to that car
  10:39pm john:

Hey! We were out, just got home. Can't believe I missed an ultra-rare Doleful Lions spin!
  10:42pm EzSezz:

Started my Datsun B210 wagon for years with a screwdriver after it was stolen in Providence for the 3rd time. They took everything except the Green on Red LP I had just bought.
  10:52pm other david:

Cheap Star is interesting. I walked into Duff, still recovering. Hello Pseu and all listeners.
Avatar 11:12pm pseu:

destroit, where ya been.
  11:13pm G:

The Kinks contributed plenty to subsequent rock-pop sensibility, too. Even the Beatles borrowed some things from the Kinks back in the mid 60s.
  11:15pm Destroit:

Watching comedy central, stuffing my face, and hanging with my girl. I ditched her to be with you!
  11:17pm Destroit:

Totally agree G.
  11:19pm PB:

I own several thousand records and CDs and know that the Kinks were an important band, but I don't think I own a single Kinks recording. Very strange.
Avatar 11:21pm pseu:

at least you can reference something beyond the Beatles when dropping comments here.
  11:33pm john:

Oh gosh, I so loved Hurrah(!). Just talking about them the other day, as one tends to.
Avatar 11:34pm pseu:

for my next song, which you will love, I will thank Scott Williams who had the brilliance to play it!
  11:35pm Destroit:

Yes, this hurrah song is quality.

  11:36pm Destroit:

Ahhh motels. Thanks.
  11:48pm Joe D.:

aw gee golly Pseu
  11:50pm James in ATL:

That Cheap Star track is a killer. I thought is was the Posies at first.
  11:55pm Destroit:

Always love the Pseu/Hazelton baton grab. Sometimes smooth, sometimes not, always engaging.
  11:56pm Squirrel Carcass:

[pushing his coffin lid open, sitting up, and rubbing his eyes]
  11:58pm Joe D.:

this song = wowwww.
  11:58pm Destroit:

From pop pleasure to demon spawn, I love it.
  11:58pm 12539:

Terrific show, Pseu.
