Riff rock for riff raff, pop fizzle for the frazzled, chord changes of life for the menopausal teenagers, a safari in the jingle-jangle jungle. (Visit homepage.)

Listener comments!

  9:07pm G:

I just know everyone's gonna behave tonight, and not harsh the mellow...
  9:07pm James in ATL:

Yes! Pseu is back.
  9:08pm nixxon:

Aaah, been looking forward to this show all week.
  9:10pm G.R.:

TGIF, y'all. :)
  9:11pm Ken From Hyde Park:

For various reasons, I haven't caught this show in a while. I am listening tonight, I tell you what.
  9:12pm Destroit:

right, G. Hello Pseu, and everyone. It's been a while since I've gotten to absorb the whole show. Looking forward to it.
  9:12pm G.R.:

That was a lovely opener! (R.I.P. Mr. Welch. :( )
  9:15pm Destroit:

X 2 G.R.
  9:15pm PB:

Dusty's version of Mockingbird was great. I can't remember who did the original. G will know. G?
  9:20pm Chop Scott:

Yes--RIP Bob Welch.
  9:20pm G:

Sorry, we had something burning here :-) This original original?? Maybe...???

  9:20pm Tom - In Gravesend Brooklyn:

  9:21pm Tom - In Gravesend Brooklyn:

love the hook ,, and Bob Welch with Christine nice !!!! nice !!!
Avatar 9:22pm pseu:

Let's take a moment to thank the Lord Jesus H. Christ that we all have internet and can use wikipedia ourselves.
  9:22pm G.R.:

According to Wikipedia, Inez and Charlie Foxx originally did it in 1963 (Dusty's version came out the next year).
  9:24pm john:

If the long-overdue Brewer and Shipley revival starts here, count me in.
  9:25pm PB:

Thanks G and Tom. Also used by Bo Diddley, just realized when I read the Wiki entry. Speaking of Bo Diddley, I take it he was one of Mo Tucker's favorite artists. A few covers and other references to Bo on Mo's recently released career retrospective (which is, by the way, a very, very interesting recording).
  9:25pm Tom - In Gravesend Brooklyn:

I thank the lord JC for WFMU too.. Spaz belted out a Shirley song not heard in years... no such good commercial oldies station anymore to reflect on either ...
  9:26pm Barkevious Shabazz:

One toke over the line sweet jesus h. christ.
  9:26pm EastVanHalen:

Hooooooooooook! Hello lovely people, and welcome back, Pseu!
  9:30pm Mike East:

@PB - I've been thinking of picking that up. I have one of her albums and there's atleast one song with a Bo Diddley beat.
  9:33pm Dr Rock:

  9:33pm PB:

It's great. Contributors include Thurston Moore, Kim Gordon, Lee Ranaldo, Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison, Jad Fair, etc. etc. Some oddities but a lot of very cool stuff too.
  9:34pm James in ATL:

That CVS sounded like the Who - in a good way
  9:38pm nixxon:

What's the name of the Mo retrospective? Not easy to find on the tubes without more details...
  9:40pm Mike East:

It's "I Feel So Far Away" - search on WFMU - there are a bunch of archives where DJ's have played tracks off of it, nixxon
  9:41pm PB:

I Feel So Far Away, issued by Sundazed. Double CD.
  9:41pm nixxon:

  9:42pm Mike East:

..."I Feel So Far Away: Anthology 1974-1998"
  9:48pm PB:

There sure has been a big hulabaloo about the reissue of Ram. I'm going to be diplomatic and not say another word.
  9:49pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Summer. Great song. The pop ees gut.
  9:51pm EastVanHalen:

Yup. Sweet melody, weird guitar, num.
  9:51pm Destroit:

Summer, that was pleasant. California, not so much.
  9:54pm Destroit:

Got a weird thing for best coast,
  9:55pm nixxon:

That was sticky bliss...
  9:55pm PB:

Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast sure does sound a lot like Dee Dee from the Dum Dum Girls, doesn't she. I really like both bands, just saying.
  9:56pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I was thinking Anna Waronker.
  9:57pm Destroit:

Totally agree PB, limited knowledge of both, but I gravitate toward what they are doing.
  10:03pm Newaveclub:

  10:14pm Destroit:

Waronker reference noted, pretenders are always appreciated.
  10:15pm G.R.:

Love this Young the Giant song... :)
  10:17pm nixxon:

Agreed - the hook is strong in this song (o-whoa)
  10:21pm Websie:

fab show tonight, pseu!
  10:22pm Destroit:

Gut feeling says that I would love to have a stupid 2:00am BBQ with G.R. & nixxon.
  10:24pm Barkevious Shabazz:

The key change at the beginning of Down Escalator is a pretty big payoff. Kudos.
  10:25pm Chop Scott:

Chameleons played a solid set at Primavera, a good blast from the past.
  10:28pm Dave in So Dak:

Damn. This show is so great. Thanks, Pseu. And kudos. It's making my Friday night so much more lively.
  10:29pm Destroit:

Enjoying the music Pseu. Haha, Man U fans + creepy forum people=a, ugh evening.
  10:32pm Dave in So Dak:

My Man-U / Nike polo shirt has endured much abuse. I will say one thing - even Manchester, Chelsea, Swindon, Liverpool fans are rabid, even when they're 7000 miles away.
  10:32pm Destroit:

Hello Dave.
  10:34pm Dave in So Dak:

Cheers, Destroit and all.
  10:45pm Destroit:

Supernatural force. Great song by sebedoh. Might be a good fit.
  10:47pm Dave in So Dak:

I miss Kirsty McColl. Steve Lillywhite was never the same after the tragedy. Need to hear. Need to hear.
  10:47pm G.R.:

"Missing Miss MacColl" -- a lovely ode to Kirsty.
  10:48pm Dave in So Dak:

  10:49pm Barkevious Shabazz:

As if we needed a reason to dislike boaters.
  10:53pm Dave in So Dak:

Gem - "Good to See You" - a track with monster hooks I haven't heard in years, and I can't find it anywhere... Love the Harrison...
  10:54pm PB:

These demos are cool but I prefer the Phil Spector "wall of sound" version. Great song.
  10:54pm G.R.:

Classic GH tune. :)
  10:58pm nixxon:

This is just sublime... thanks Pseu!
  10:58pm G.R.:

Aw, I love me some REM!
  10:59pm Chris in Newton:

Great show Pseu. Thank you.
  11:00pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Success kills the creative urge.
  11:01pm Dave in So Dak:

  11:09pm Dave in So Dak:

Someone...Yeltsin sounds kind of like New Amsterdams. Love it. Thanks, Pseu. Best show ever.
  11:15pm Dave in So Dak:

Barkevious Shabazz - Perhaps success kills creativity in many cases - I agree, I've seen it. But failure, after years and years of struggle, can also pretty much kill one's songwriting muscle. Trust me. Artists are weird like that.
  11:20pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Dave ISD-Point taken, Scott Miller being the ultimate example of jettisoning the ignored.
  11:23pm Usurper:

We're all lazy at heart, creative or not... Cavemen would be so disappointed if they knew what happened...
  11:24pm John:

Caught the show driving tonight. An absolutely amazing playlist. Bravo!
  11:31pm Dave in So Dak:

Usurper - See your point. Wonder what humanity would be like today if we had the courage like our ancient ancenstors to fend off life-threatening things like predators. Today it's fending off old girlfriends, creditors, telemarketers... We're whimps.
  11:33pm David:

Really good show tonight. Great picks.
Got got to bed now ---

Nashville, Tennessee
(Belle Meade)
  11:34pm john (with a lower case j):

Oh, as if old girlfriends aren't predators.
  11:35pm Dave in So Dak:

  11:36pm slugluv1313:

oh wow -- FURS!!!!!! thank you, Pseu! :)
  11:36pm david small d:

yes Usurper, there's the laziness-drivenness continuum of creativity as well
  11:38pm Josh:

Hey pseu! Great show! Just drove from Westchester, Ny to seekonk, MA listening all the way over my iPhone. Thanks for keeping me company!
  11:43pm Nick:

All wonderful, Made a mistake earilier and emailed instead of posting, new here. Cyclones, monotone set, bells (chicago band)? Not sure if requests work, love what you are playing
Avatar 11:44pm pseu:

Thanks, Josh and everyone for the company tonight! xoxo
  11:47pm Dave in So Dak:

SERIOUSLY stellar set tonite, pseu. i'm going to have to pull this off the fmu archives and play it incessantly in my jeep while rocking the great outdoors this summer in the great state of sd.
  11:50pm G.R.:

A fun show as always. :D
  11:51pm EastVanHalen:

The first all-daylight Hook of the year here in Vancouver. Feels like summer's finally on the way.
  11:54pm Chris in Newton:

RIP Bob Welch.. What a great sound
  12:00am Destroit:

Good show Pseu, thanks.
  9:04pm G:

Wow, only one poster harshed the mellow all show!!! Great job, people. We'll do even better next week!
