Yeah JakeGould, I had fun gathering those songs to semi recreate the playlists. Kinda dorky, eh?

CM, I just looked up one of those old playlists. It would be fun to hear one of those shows. Wondering how Diane sounded in '82.

And yes. Dorky. We'll forgive you though.

A.C. Reed! This is why I like WFMU :)
Listener Schned:

Steve, thanks moglie moglie for your fill-ins, always superb- so how do we pledge to you ??
Jumpin JF:

This does work because the Robert Plant knobs are pulled back somewhat ... the accompaniment is a nice change also. Risk = reward!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm
Ken From Hyde Park:

Robert Plant wouldn't put out a bad record, would he?

Ken, Robert Plant has put out a few big logs.

Yay! Happened upon you tonight. I get your emails but forgot.

Andrew Waterloo:

Mel Brown was based in Kitchener Ontario. Here's a huge hero around here.
Jumpin JF:

Little by little he has gotten better. Or worse. Or stayed the same.

The album covers have gotten worse however.
Avatar 11:18pm

Yes, how do we pledge to Steve, or get him back as a regular?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm
Ken From Hyde Park:

Crud...I never did get my free pancakes today and now I'm hungry. By the time I get dressed and drive across town, it'll be too late. Maybe next year.

He seems to be regularly sporadic.

Ken, why pancakes?

But honestly, I was actually near the site of one of the only IHOPS close by yesterday. The whole building was demolished to make way for glass towers and junk. Such is Brooklyn life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm
Matt from Springfield:

Wow, you made all those great influential Newport Folk Festivals. You might even appear in the concert film "Festival!"


WFMU is a national treasure. International if you count the opinion of those unwashed masses outside of our borders.

Not too sure about you Canadians.

Steve this has been an amazing program.

What about the oceans? People on ships can reach WFMU if they have internet access.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm
Matt from Springfield:

"...and to all the Ships at Sea!"
Sean B.:

I still love listening to them satellite's hum and growl on my shortwave radio though...;i guess that's really the only other solid alternative, a damn good short wave radio thingy.

Border's is a mall bookstore that closed down good sir.

Smell you later Steve!
