Listener comments!

sure glad i saved the email.
Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Still lurking about. Nice wake up music. Time for some tequila.
Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:


Hi, Steve. We're wide awake in the uk!
Do I detect a LedZep riff theme this morning?

Not so wide awake in NJ. Just tuning in, but sounds great!
Andy in Berlin:

I never heard of almost anybody here but this is pretty f$#king good.
Andy in Berlin:

Hey what happened?! I thought this was Jewish Moments in the Morning!
Kieran in the UK:

Sounds like i tuned in at just the right time...great music.
Ken From Hyde Park:

I heard The Cowboy Song on the radio years ago and bought the CD. I had it on my desk at work and some weasel stole it. That made me mad. Thanks for plying it.
Ken From Hyde Park:

I meant "playing" and not "plying" there. It fooled the spell checker. That's what I get for trying to rush. Hoo boy.

is it just my headphones, or are the channels switching?
Steve Krinsky:

My first chance to say g'morning. Hope the folkies who listen to Jeffrey's show don't mind my stretching. Email me if you have more say or want to know when I am on again: stevek@wfmu.org. And check out all my shows on the archives!
Brian in UK:

This Roger Miller sounds uncannily like Chip Taylor. No bad thing.
Lou Russo:

Hi Steve,
GREAT SHOW, loved all the Celtic stuff. I couldn't help but think that my tune "Celtic Girl", from the ROSA CD, would have fit in nicely, but that said, I enjoyed your choices. --- Lou
That "Irish/ Mexican mix was very interesting, a great theme for a show.
mickee jaguar:

hands down-thin lizzy is the best thing that ever came out of Ireland-including da guinness! the cowboy song rocked me to my punk-ass celtic soul!!!!!!!!!!!! rock on boyz
