I think Lou Reed was inspired by Oscar the Grouch throughout most of his career. @neither: I agree with you! I don't really find this that noisy. Bummer! I was trying to find the "typical" noise record. Should've gone to the Merzbow section.

if you guys need "go for" fill-ins, i just got laid off
Avatar 11:12am doca:

Will Donna play a "lighter" set on her fill-in for Irene?
Avatar 11:12am Cecile:

sorry to hear that, pgw. A friend of mine's last day is today, too. :(
Avatar 11:13am Brian in UK:

Seems not Matt. Jimmy Savile was the bastard that kicked this off and he is dead. It is a shock.
Avatar 11:16am Brian in UK:

Ahhhh Donna (to the sound of Joe's opening credits) Copacetic.
Avatar 11:16am Joe McG:

Brian, are you singing on this one?
Avatar 11:16am pgw in mntclr:

thanks, Cecile. i got outsourced, but i also got a severance!
Avatar 11:17am Brian in UK:

Still waiting for my voice to break, Joe.
Avatar 11:17am Cecile:

that's nice, pgw.

Wow, these kids can sang.
Avatar 11:18am Brian in UK:

Give the Drummer Some!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18am Parq:

Jeez, this is pretty! Is the whole disc like this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18am tim from champaign:

My condolences, pgw. Hopefully, you'll have something else lined up soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19am Mike Sin:

Nice show today, Joe! Listening while traveling back to Jersey.

My high school history teacher showed us the '73 Wicker Man. I think I was the only one that loved it.
Avatar 11:24am Joe McG:

Hey, carm! @Cecile: Children singing will lead you there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25am Matt from Springfield:

Nice music made by children in schools...Incredible, even!
Avatar 11:26am Joe McG:

@Matt: It's a wrestling match between Don Muro and the kiddies as to which new release I like better.
Avatar 11:26am Joe McG:

@Greg: Your teacher would get fired for doing that today, probably.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28am Matt from Springfield:

@Greg/Joe: And without permission slips no less!!! ;)

@Joe: I'm more than content to let the match spill over into next week :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29am Carmichael:

Children of the Corn singing led me there, too. I didn't fare well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30am Greg from Bloomfield:

Don't worry, he fast forwarded through the weird nude dance part.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31am Carmichael:

Was it a naked balloon dance, like that guy from the Teletubbies?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35am Carmichael:

Yes! Richard and Linda!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36am Matt from Springfield:

LIVE Richard & Linda!

I know I'm a bit late saying so, but that Oscar the Grouch into Metal Machine Music was brilliant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38am Parq:

Got to run around. Great show as usual, Joe.
Avatar 11:39am Joe McG:

Thanks, Mike East. Noise annoys! Hey, Kurt! Thanks for listening, Parq, always good to see you.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44am Carmichael:

Just saw RT again a few weeks ago. He guested for Peter Frampton, and played Shoot Out the Lights and Tear Stained Letter. Bloody brilliant performance.
