July 11th: Great show... Steven Baldwin?!
« on: July 12, 2006, 04:19:57 PM »
PBR was great as usual, Fred was cool.  Was that an actual call from Germany?!

But, what was up with "Steven Baldwin"?  Did Tom hang up on him for using a real name?

I couldn't really hear what was wrong with Denny Doherty's vocals on "Monday Monday", but I enjoyed the Jandek reference.

That Mamas & Papas clip is so weird. I think that the bassist is the one who starts the chain reaction by playing some off notes. He's the one on the grassy knoll.

I liked it. Tom should use it after all GOMPs hereafter, like the Kill Bill thing that used to precede the GOMP.

Fred is not cool.

My sentiments exactly. I'm sorry I helped contribute to his calling in in the first place, but it's all a hoax anyway, wasn't it. At the end of the show, what, four weeks ago, didn't Fred's voice change mid call? Or am I just imagining things because I had the fever dreams that week?
Who ever heard of a dinosaur with a head full of grease and an out of tune guitar?

Yeah, Fred was like "I didn't make a drug reference!  Wait, (in different, more sober-ish and aggressive voice) WHO IS THIS?" totally Bryce style, and then Tom GOMP'd him and said he was doing a bit.  But then A.P. Mike, I think, maintained that he thought the guy was for real.  Which is possible, because he could've just gone into paranoiac jump-out-of-stupor-and-man-the-defense mode, a real-life phenomenon that wurster seems to have based some comedy on.

Tom does work in Hollywood... I can't imagine he'd let listeners make enemies for him.

Where was the Baldwin call going to go?  "Look at me, I'm Steven Baldwin.  I was in Meet the Deedles, or the usual Suspects, um...."

Soft Serve.

I dunno, it was like this:

T:  WFMU, you're on the air!

Caller:  Hey, this is Stephen Baldwin.

T:  OK, (call ends, then Tom moves on to next caller).

Just kinda funny, I guess.
