  9:18pm Mr. Two-Arms:

Warm fuzzy feelings! Thanks WFMU & Yo La Tengo!
  9:19pm david:

puppet - really sublime choice for a cover!
  9:19pm seang:

the ustream is stopping and starting-maybe just me?
  9:20pm wrosco:

happening for me too.
  9:21pm other david:

this is beautiful
  9:21pm keving:

I was having some trouble with the stream as well.
  9:21pm Herminio Gomez:

Greetings from Natal/Brazil! Love Yo La Tengo!
  9:21pm Mr. Two-Arms:

UStream not working too great here, either :(
  9:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Cool, at least comments are open for this years!
  9:22pm EastVanHalen:

This is too cool for words.
  9:22pm conrad:

the ustream cuts out every 3 seconds for me
  9:22pm some other guy:

damn, sure wish I could get the stream going without cutting out every 10 seconds. Guess I'll just have to listen to it like it is... radio. The sound is excellent this year.
Avatar 9:22pm pseu:

so sorry folks -- i did mean to type "$100" dollars!! keep up the support for WFMU!!!xox
  9:23pm jimbo:

YLT are the best. This is the coolest.
  9:23pm Mr. Two-Arms:

Pledge Pledge Pledge! I spend more on coffee everyday, and I love WFMU WAY more than coffee!
  9:23pm wrosco:

yea the sound is great. it just woulda been a treat to follow on video. these guys are the perfect band
  9:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Yeah, the UStream isn't doing well this year--wasn't on at all two days ago for me, and the video keeps stalling here.

But I'm listening on the 128k, so the audio's fine. It's the philosophical question: video and audio synched but risking cutouts, or excellent audio behind the video.
  9:25pm Wendy del Formaggio:

So nice to hear Pseu and Gaylord together again! And big thanks to Yo La Tengo for their generosity and talent. Love to everyone from the Green Mountain State.
  9:25pm other david:

listen to the audio stream, get bits and pieces off the ustream

it's more than enough
  9:26pm Mr. Two-Arms:

@Matt...I am doing 128 stream with occasional video.
  9:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Perfect! "Be creative, be interesting, but don't be obscure" Bravo Gaylord, perfect instruction!

Matt Pinfield from Springfield is Dump?
  9:29pm Matt from Springfield:

HA HA! Stupid Sexy Flanders, Belgium!
  9:29pm Liz B.:

Sorry for the video hiccups, we tried dropping the resolution a bit and so it should be smoother now.
  9:30pm Matt from Springfield:

@pukka: No, Dump is the side project of James from YLT. Matt Pinfield...?
  9:30pm wrosco:

its been going great for a while. thanks a lot.

@Liz B- Don't ever apologise to us, you work your ass off
  9:31pm pukka pennge:

unbearable to listen to this!!!
  9:32pm Matt from Springfield:

@pukka: The WFMU fan response to that would be...then PLEDGE and request something better!
Avatar 9:32pm pseu:

thanks liz and everyone out there!
  9:32pm Mr. Two-Arms:

I saw YLT in Pittsburgh this past fall, and the WFMU Wheel of Death landed on Dump..they played a full set of James DUMP stuff (mostly Prince covers) and it was absolutely fantastic!!
Avatar 9:33pm pseu:

Hi R. Stevie!
  9:33pm other david:

what is it about YLT that makes me melt and feel like a 17 y/o unbearably earnest teenager every time they play. beautiful, beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Julie:

@OD that's so cute!
  9:35pm Matt from Springfield:

@OD: Just like Irwin says, YLT have never put out a bad album!
  9:35pm Mr. Two-Arms:

Video stream is looking better
  9:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh Wow! This is a Bonzo Dog song! Kudos to them for knowing this...and the person who requested it!!
  9:36pm pukka pennge:

bad?? how could they? pseu, got an answer?
Avatar 9:37pm pseu:

to what?
  9:38pm Mr. Two-Arms:

@ Liz B: the video stream is looking great, thanks!
  9:38pm Matt from Springfield:

And I think this is Boyce & Hart!! I would've called this one obscure, but SO SO glad they didn't!
  9:38pm some other guy:

@Matt: their worst album is Is Murdering the Classics, which, of course, is totally great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm Julie:

It is nice to be able to watch this at home instead of trying to peek through the crowd there!
  9:39pm pgw in mntclr:

starting off the show with that version of "porpoise song" was quite fantastic
  9:39pm Matt from Springfield:

And yes Liz B, THANK YOU for your tireless effort to keep this running smoothly! The video has improved a lot!
Avatar 9:39pm pseu:

thnx pgw.
  9:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@sog: Of course, worst in a "relative" manner :)

@Julie: Oh but we would love to be there experiencing this! Then again once you've been there maybe you'd like to see it instead... :)
  9:41pm wrosco:

these guys have the most fun together out of any band i've ever seen.
  9:42pm Dan B From Upstate:

Oh! I didn't know there was video this year. Exciting!
  9:43pm Dave in PA:

  9:43pm Mr. Two-Arms:

Listening to it, for me, is better than watching the video stream...I just like the atmosphere of listening to it.

We are strong. We are invincible. We are CYBORG!
  9:44pm other david:

@matt & julie: nice to see you two lovely folks here!

i cant believe this station is on the doorstep of NYC and yet it needs to beg for 2 weeks to survive.

this is priceless.
  9:45pm Mr. Two-Arms:

Dan B, where Upstate?
  9:45pm Matt from Springfield:

All right Julie! Now we can try to figure out your request! ;)
  9:45pm Dan B From Upstate:

Utica area.
  9:45pm Dave in PA:

so lemme get this straight - if I pledge 100 bucks, I get to request any song, and YLT has to make a serious attempt to play it on air??
  9:46pm Matt from Springfield:

@OD: Nice to see you here as well, natch! :)
  9:47pm JJ:

They don't HAVE to play it, so don't sue them if it doesn't show up, okay?
  9:47pm Matt from Springfield:

1978, Exile, "I Want To Kiss You All Over"...
  9:47pm Mr. Two-Arms:

@ Dan B, greetings from the West (Buffalo)!!!

If I put the glasses on I will pretend to be Pseu
  9:48pm JJ:

Traditionally they'll finish w/ a medley of anything they didn't get to. They also occasionally will substitute something if they don't know it.
  9:49pm Dan B From Upstate:

I've got some great friends in Buffalo. I love the area!

  9:51pm sghm:

I split my $365 pledge between three shows including this one and my name didn't get mentioned, did my request get lost in the system or did all of it have to be pledged to just this show?
  9:52pm oldjollymon:

Audio, video & comments = awesome! Plus love seeing that MJ cover lookin over at Georgia
  9:52pm Ralphine:

The best cover of "Kiss You All Over" was by Adam Sandler in Happy Gilmore.
  9:52pm Mr. Two-Arms:

Born 'n' raised in the Jerz'. Must say, I miss it :( If ya don't know, ya don't know.
  9:52pm Nashville Noah from Coffee Break FOr Heroes...:

SUE & Gaylord, ALWAYS a wonderful way to wind down the marathon. SHout out to Yo La Tengo gang too!!
  9:53pm Mr. Two-Arms:

Hi Noah!
  9:54pm gjorgji:

  9:55pm conrad:

sghm, were you called out at the time you pledged? i think someone had the same problem during shut up, weirdo.
  9:55pm other david:

hehe was this Julie's?
  9:55pm Nashville Noah from Coffee Break FOr Heroes...:

Hi Mr. Two Arms!!!
  9:56pm baconfat:

@matt from springfield: that was me who requested the bonzo dog band song - dump recorded a cover of it in the past.
  9:58pm Matt from Springfield:

FUCK YES! Leader of the Pack!!!!
  9:59pm Matt from Springfield:

@baconfat: Awesome, you have great taste! :)
  9:59pm Marmalade kitty:

Thats hard work what YLT are doing, they can't possibly know all those songs offa top of head, and have very little time to organizie.. great musicians
  9:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Gaylord should be joining the backing vocals for this one! :)
  9:59pm Mr. Two-Arms:

WFMU...Leaders of the Pack!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm Julie:

No they haven't played mine yet, and no it's not cocteau twins :D
  9:59pm sghm:

conrad, I wasn't. I was pledging four hours ago, the show that was on was none of those I assigned my pledge to, if that has something to do with it.
  10:00pm other david:

this is so awesome

Wooooooo!!! (raises lighter)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Julie:

it is nice to know that Bruce fell for the Leader of the Pack
  10:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Kitty! I agree, these are really on the spot, yet they manage to do very workable versions of all these songs. I catch them every year!
  10:02pm Mr. Two-Arms:

@ Julie, hang in there. I thought The Flying Machine would've been an easy one for them, and they struggled with ti. I amlost feel the later, the better! Gives them a chance to get in the zone with each other.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Julie:

@SGHM if you webpledged and assigned it to this show, they will get it. I'm sure they have a large pile to read
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm Julie:

@Two-Arms Oh I'm not worried at all! They have a ton of stuff to go through
  10:03pm Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Wouldn't it be funny if they DID play a CTs request, and tried to improv vocals to fit it! :D
  10:03pm Mr. Two-Arms:

  10:04pm Mr. Two-Arms:

  10:05pm pgw in mntclr:

kudos to the person that requested the misfits song
  10:05pm Mr. Two-Arms:

Did you know that Lou Danzig, Glenn's brother, was a babe Ruth baseball phenom?
  10:06pm Mr. Two-Arms:

Lodi, NJ Babe Ruth LEGEND
  10:06pm D.:

Neat, I was listening to some Misfits earlier and was thinking that would be a neat request for this
  10:07pm pgw in mntclr:

ha! i didn't know that
  10:08pm other david:

  10:09pm Matt from Springfield:

12 premium pledge = $500 = I dunno...Y-half-K? Another for which there isn't a standard name.
  10:09pm conrad:

did gaylord just say he was hand-pleasuring his tool?
  10:09pm Marmalade kitty:

king Kong!!
  10:10pm Matt from Springfield:

I was searching previous setlists to make sure I didn't request a "rerun"--some years ago there was a 3-song Kinks streak that YLT played!
  10:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Woo hoo! Request is IN! :D
I love how Gaylord always says "Toronta Canada"!
  10:11pm Mr. Two-Arms:

But YLT/Kinks is soooooooooooooo tempting!
  10:11pm other david:

@Matt - my mouth is already frothing at the bassline practice!
  10:11pm Matt from Springfield:

@MK: I think yesterday was the Anniversary of the original King Kong, according to Wiki's front page.

Another 3-Kinks-Song set!
  10:20pm EzSezz:

Kondo Fucks!
  10:20pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Ustream is working fine for me on wireless at home. It works better if you have a good wireless connection or hooked straight to an ethernet cable. If I get far away from the router, it cuts out quite a bit.
  10:21pm Marmalade kitty:

michael jackson there?! paying particular attention to the drummer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Julie:

I don't NEED to request the Kinks
  10:22pm Mr. Two-Arms:

  10:27pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Hey! I don't mean to be a pest, but how long is the usual time between when a pledger (me) makes a request and the band plays it? I'm still waiting for mine. Has it been rejected? Thanks!
  10:28pm SFrances:

@Joe I was wondering that too
  10:35pm other david:

a credit to earth
  10:36pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Marmalade Kitty, the mayor of Jersey City is too busy kissing the ass of the producers of "Jersey Shore" to even recognize there's a radio station in his town. Oh, and getting drunk and appearing naked on his front porch.
  10:36pm Joe D:

sugarwolf, indeed. BTW, I think I spotted one of the Jersey Shore trainwrecks the day before I moved. I saw some frazzled young people with clipboards and a mic on a stick and a movie camera following a hideous, orange, haggard looking young woman walking two teacup-sized dogs, with a Jersey City cop in-tow, looking less than amused. I scowled and grimaced. Haha.
  10:40pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Mr. Two-Arms, Jersey City *has* come a long way, but we can't say the same for Hizzoner. :-D

Anyone know if another "murdering the classics" LP is in the works?

And I think it was Girl Like You after Tally Ho?
  10:54pm baconfat:

"with a girl like you" by the troggs.
  10:55pm oldjollymon:

Methinks tally ho > girl like you (troggs)
  10:55pm Matt from Springfield:

@MK: Interesting, whenever I listen to sports on the radio while watching TV in the US, it seems to be ahead on TV versus radio. Because of different FCC radio requirements maybe.

Uncontrollable urge would be awesome
  10:57pm someone:

For me, the Ustream is up ahead of both the web & radio by mere seconds.
  10:58pm Ralphine:

If it's satellite or cable TV, Matt from Springfield, the delay comes from all the processing/compression that the satellite or cable company has to do.

@Dan B: I seem to be on the same page/wavelength as several commenters tonight! :)
  11:12pm classic rock loser:

What, no vibro champ? No trem at all?
  11:13pm G:

The number one overplayed overlong song of all time -- at least they changed it up some :-)
  11:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Backstory, for those who don't who what the hell Gaylord's talking about:
  11:13pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I just saw Bryce's arm and he's wearing the shirt I bought him. Yay!
  11:15pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Matt from Spfld: WHOA. Thanks for that. I *was* wondering, in fact, what Gaylord was talking about. Dang, that's a really sad story.
  11:15pm baconfat:

@G more so than stairway to heaven or amercian pie?
  11:16pm egmiranda:

hey guys greetings from Chile, Southamerica!!. Cheers to YLT!!!
  11:16pm aq:

i think matt just followed the exact same trail of wikipedia articles that i did
  11:17pm other david:

do I hear dead kennedy's?
  11:17pm Danne D:

Glad to see Kenzo get the credit he deserves :)

Pledge in honor of Kenzo and all he does!

lucky to get out of bed!!
  11:17pm Matt from Springfield:

@Wendy: There's supposed to be a "curse" of Derek & The Dominoes, since besides Eric, everyone else has had a hard life, ODed, killed themself or killed their mother. Not a happy ending.
  11:18pm other david:

He didn't get my name wrong Pseu :)
  11:20pm Dan B From Upstate:

This must be Andy Breckman's request
  11:20pm G:

@baconfat: When I listened to classic rock radio some in the 80s/early 90s, Layla was played *much* more than the other two. Just my cumulative impression without metrics, YMMV!
  11:20pm other david:

  11:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Easier than the Green Hornet song? :)

@Julie: Oh yeah, there was the whole business about Conor...although Eric has made out a lot better than most of the Dominoes.
  11:21pm someone:

nananananananana BATMAN!
  11:21pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Matt from Spfld: Geez, I had no idea about that "Layla" curse. Sorta makes Marty Scorcese's use of it in "Goodfellas" kinda spot-on, wouldn't you say?
  11:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Pull out an industrial paper shredder, and run his guitar through it!! He's shreddin' it!
  11:23pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Ooh, The Soft Boys! Niiiice!
  11:23pm Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

I will never be terribly popular, and here's one reason why: I am not in the slightest bit shy about expressing that if you listen to WFMU, but do not pledge your financial support of said institution, then I resent you. All the way live! However, if, conversely, you *do* give your heart out in pledge fashion, then I love you with reckless abandon, and if ever presented with an opportunity would surely hug you. I don't care who you are, or who might not be so willing to squeeze you like they mean it. Boy would I!! 1-800-989-9368 or wfmu.org
  11:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@Wendy: It was a great, soaring, dramatic cue in its own right for that film, but yeah I think the history adds that kind of element to our interpretation of the film.
  11:24pm SFrances:

Sweet! The Soft Boys!
  11:24pm bill:

I got the flash player and itunes going for the extra beef
  11:24pm dan b (in ca):

Thanks, whoever requested I Wanna Destroy You! I would have requested this if I hadn't already given all my pledge money last week.
  11:24pm conrad:

was this scharpling's request? he played this a couple of months ago
  11:25pm Matt from Springfield:

(quietly turn my bolt lock in case Adam is lurking around my neighborhood) :)
  11:25pm Wendy del Formaggio:

What's the song they played before "I Wanna Destroy You"? I don't know it and I really liked it. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
  11:25pm oldjollymon:

Who did Roadblock(?) before this?
  11:26pm Danne D:

formaggio, baconfat, marmalade, hamsamwich, trix - board's making me hungry tonight :)
  11:27pm Danne D:

Shout out to Noah if he's still here on the board - always glad you're around!
  11:27pm Van in DC:

Who ARE these guys? They seem to have a rather large and varied repertoire. Exactly the kind of guys you would need for something like what is happening now, of course. I like them.
  11:27pm baconfat:

  11:28pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Danne D, I'm getting hungry, too. I have cheese in the fridge. Shocking, I know.
  11:29pm Michael in Baltimore:

Viva Sparks!! Thank you to whoever requested that.
  11:29pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Van, silly! You gotta look to the left and read. It's Yo La Tengo!
  11:29pm bill:

Plus Van, how about magnets? They kick ass!!
  11:29pm Danne D:

This show is always a top highlight of the marathon :) Such a great tradition. I remember running the request cards upstairs to them one time back East Orange.
  11:29pm Marmalade kitty:

Hi egmiranda!!!
  11:29pm bill:

*talking loudly*
  11:29pm G:

@Van: This show is not allowed to be archived, so listen up :-)
  11:30pm Van in DC:

  11:30pm Matt from Springfield:

"Farmer John" is great! Good request!
  11:31pm Adam in Portland and Lynnwod:

@Matt, you're safe! ;-) Well, not hug-safe. haha..
  11:31pm Van in DC:

I know their NAME but never have heard them or of them before is what I meant :)

Marc Bolan toss-in FTW

Van welcome to NJ
  11:32pm Destroit:

Hi Danne, is YLT live an annual Pseu/pledge/request tradition? (this is fantastic by the way).
  11:32pm Matt from Springfield:

@Adam: That's what I mean! ;)
  11:32pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Van, you are right about the cheese. I shouldn't really keep it in the fridge, but for the time being I do. And you oughta check out Yo la Tengo's albums. Immensely talented and enjoyable band.
  11:33pm Danne D:

Go Pseu!!!

Gotta love Rich H :)
  11:33pm Wendy del Formaggio:

YEAH! Pseu Braun!!! Sing it!
  11:33pm Danne D:

@Destroit - Yep - they have been doing this 16 years running now.
  11:33pm Adam in Portland and Lynnwod:

HA! I lived in the same Hollywood apartment building as Crispin Glover for two weeks in 1992.
  11:34pm bobo:

My 'puter's sizzlin'! Later!
  11:34pm Van in DC:

Is this the "Thing with a hook" part? :)
  11:34pm G:

Yes, Destroit -- but never archived. If I did dozens and dozens of covers back to back that I didn't know perfectly, I wouldn't agree to that being out there forever in public, either :-) They're game enough just to do it at all...
  11:34pm Herzog:

Do not overstep your boundaries, Pseu
  11:34pm Danne D:

It's generally been at this time slot for the last few years. Before that, I believe it was during Gaylord's shift a few years. Before that I believe it was the finale (before the advent of Hoof N Mouth)
  11:34pm Adam in Portland and Lynnwod:

@Matt, (squeeeeeeeeeeze!)
  11:35pm Terre T:

I'm gunna PASS OUT WITH EXCITEMENT!! Pseu w/ YLT doing Crispin Glover??!!??! What an awesome night! CIAJ yo!!

@Danne D
You go back to East Orange? Zowie! Were you ever @ FMU in the basement of Froeberg Hall?
  11:38pm Adam in Portland and Lynnwod:

  11:38pm Destroit:

16 years, that is stunning. Always liked YLT's music, great to know that they are good humans as well. This show is so good.
  11:40pm Adam in Portland and Lynnwod:

Gaylord making his own "beard" joke. I love him!
  11:40pm Van in DC:

whoo hoo!!
  11:41pm Danne D:

@Doug S - not quite that far :) I think my first year volunteering was '97.
  11:42pm Danne D:

@Doug S I do like to think I took the last pledge ever at East Orange though as while everyone celebrated making the goal, the phone rang and I took a pledge :) Just remember Ken announcing "Upsala College is on Fire!"
  11:42pm Van in DC:

@Doug S - All kudos to The Drummer!!
  11:42pm Doug S.:

My last year as volunteer director was '96.
  11:42pm Doug S.:

My last year as volunteer director was '96.

Ira Kaplan's a great guy - I've been lucky enough to meet him in the Terre T phone room over past marathons.
  11:43pm Danne D:

@Doug S - yep I remember Scott being pretty new to the job when I started volunteering.
