Listener comments!

  3:13am Marmalade kitty:

Good morning from UK!!
  3:14am DJ PB:

Hey Kitty! Thanks for checking in!
  3:14am KP:

nice wah.
  3:31am Tom From Back-In-The-Day:

Just flipped you on in time to hear feedtime. So awesome, that show at Maxwells last April was a best of for sure
  3:34am Marmalade kitty:

Bubble Rap sounds "post punk"..?
  3:41am Danne D:

Go Paulie Go :) will be listening until I pass out. sounding good, man

ps hi/bye all!
  3:42am DJ PB:

@Danne Happy to be your guide to slumberland!
  3:49am Koto:

That was very cool track. I liked it.
  3:52am DJ PB:

Thanks, Koto!
  4:14am Koto:

This one! The background music you are playing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22am DJ PB:

@Koto That's a loop of the RZA from the Ghost Dog soundtrack.
  4:26am Thomas:

Glad to see you reppin' that Per Purpose! great record
  4:28am KP:

Excello, Paul
  4:30am Koto:

Is Ghost Dog a movie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37am DJ PB:

@Koto It is indeed. www.imdb.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37am DJ PB:

@KP Thanks!
  4:49am Tom From Back-In-The-Day:

The aggro of Metz......will leave it at that.
  5:22am Tom From Back-In-The-Day:

Ty bummed me out. Tyvek picked me up. Please don't play Frank Ocean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23am DJ PB:

@Tom That's pretty unlikely.

  5:24am Tom From Back-In-The-Day:

Once you go Metz......
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25am DJ PB:

...you don't go to the ocean?
  5:26am Marmalade kitty:

loved that start/stop/start track! have to compile a playlist of best songs that stop/start
  5:28am Tom From Back-In-The-Day:

I'm fairly certain you absorbed the 80'/90's of NY's last halcyon days. Metz to me is like the Walmart version of AmRep or Touch & Go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36am DJ PB:

@Tom You're certainly not alone in that opinion. I like the record fine though. Hopefully White Lung is not also offending your sensibilities.
  5:37am Koto:

Found it. It's "Samurai Showdown", isn't it? Thank you for the info.
In the movie, a guy sprawl at rooftop with some pigeons around reminded me that I had seen it. I think I'll see that again.
  5:38am Tom From Back-In-The-Day:

Paul, I've been around the block enough times to know that you are entitled to the right to be wrong.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40am DJ PB:

@Tom Fair enough. That being said, the Walmart version of AmRep doesn't necessarily sound like a bad thing to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40am DJ PB:

@Koto I'm about 90% that's the tune but I'd have to double check to be certain.
  5:44am Tom From Back-In-The-Day:

Obviously. But I'm more of a Mom & Pop guy. Next thing I know your going to be playing the entire HoZac catalog. Damn your corporate ass!
  5:49am Koto:

Now you are 100%! (^^)
  5:53am Joe B:

Warm Soda rising from the ashes of bare Wires!
  5:56am Tom From Back-In-The-Day:

Nice, After that Ladyhawk track I was sure it was going to be either some Robert Pollard or Magnetic Fields guy crap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57am DJ PB:

@Tom When Rayon Beach are on that new MTV reality show in West Virgina, feel to say I told you so.

@Joe B Thanks for the tip! I'm going to check them out.
