  23. That early in the day it was either Larry the Duck or Madison DJ'ing. LTD is ok but Madison is an idiot!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Pussycat: Yes, I think that was his name. Said they would air it this morning and throughout the weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  25. @ pussycat...
    she is an idiot!!!!
    She really didn't say anything about the cure. :(

    ReplyDelete
  26. I know it wasn't Madison, so it had to be Larry The Duck.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I've been trying to send them a song request but they haven't played any of them yet. :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. Must have been him.....

    ReplyDelete
  29. They'll play your song but it will probably be a few hours from now.

    ReplyDelete

  32. 3:07 pm (central) - The Caterpillar.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Before the Caterpillar, Robert spoke a little about it being a "funny little song" and how the drummer Andy actually drummed on his leg to make the sounds as the song starts.

    ReplyDelete
  34. The intros have been about an hour apart right ?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks Heron. I missed that part.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The intros are about an hour apart.

    @astrangeday82: I'm not sure if they will play the songs you requested. I haven't heard them play anything prior to 1989 in the past.

    Smooches,
    Pussycat

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is fun, kind of like a 4-day long live show chat! :D

    ReplyDelete
  38. stupid sirious website! it wont let me log in! and i already have the trial version! agh i would hate to miss the interview, i really really hope someone will record it and upload it somewhere pleaase!

    ReplyDelete
  39. How can I listen to the concert?!!?

    It logs me out every 90 mins or so if I don't do something!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love it when DJs have perfect timing. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Just click to keep listening when it asks if you are still listening.

    ReplyDelete
  42. V: Think the universe is trying to tell us something? : )

    ReplyDelete
  43. Craig: Um, yeah, I think so. :D

    ReplyDelete
  44. Does a window pop up?
    I haven't seen one yet?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yes, you will hear a little bloop, and a window appears asking if you are still listening. At least that's what it does for me, using Firefox.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Here comes the train... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  47. 4:05 pm (central) - Jumping Someone Else's Train. No intro.

    ReplyDelete
  48. 3:06 (Mountain) JSET (YAY!) no introduction

    ReplyDelete
  49. I haven't heard any bloop all day?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Carlos,
    You can use a service like Gmail or Hotmail to generate another email address that you could use to sign up for the free trial under, if you're having problems logging into your first trial account.

    ReplyDelete
  51. @astrangeday82: i use firefox as my browser. it comes with a plugin for sirius. with the plugin you get continuous play...no interruptions.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Richard has apparently never heard of bootlegs. : P

    ReplyDelete
  53. Craig: I was thinking the same thing. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Enjoy your 'listening party' guys. Wish I was able to ... hope *someone's* recording this thing! >_<

    ReplyDelete
  55. Don't worry, Helsa. Someone will get it. If not, they are repeating it all weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  56. LOL Craig I thought that exact thing!

    "um, Richard, I don't know how to break this to you, but there's this thing called Bit Torrent. You may want to check it out..."

    ReplyDelete
  57. I use firefox. :) Let me see...I'll try and figure this out....

    ReplyDelete
  58. So...what should I do other than clicking the button ?
    I clicked this plug-in thing on the top of the page and it said that it didn't find anything ???

    ReplyDelete
  59. Firefox Sirius plugin

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3546

    ReplyDelete
  60. Yeah, I know it's going to repeat, Craig. I read what you put on the front page, unlike SOME people. lol.

    Oh I do love hearing Robert's voice... maybe that's why I hear it so often in my dreams... aaah, sweet, sweet, psychosis.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I installed it now what?

    Will it just not log me out anymore ?

    Thanks for all the help.

    ReplyDelete
  62. No, you'll still have to login (select sirius, channel, login) but it will give you continuous play instead cutting off after 90 minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  63. i am going to record the concert but as for the tidbits, well i can't do them all.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Don't worry Andy, I am recording everything. I am actually in the middle of splitting the first 7 hours that I recorded now.

    Kind of funny that Sirius played U2 and Morrissey before The Cure. Robert hates both of them!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Good thing RS doesn't program the channel. He has awful taste in music. : P

    ReplyDelete
  66. I hate them both too! :P

    So no more logging me out after 90 mins I hope!

    Thanks for all the help!

    ReplyDelete
  67. so i am on the right channel? They played Hairdresser on Fire a few min ago then Psychedelic Furs?

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm getting excited!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Sorry...I feel sad for you...

    I hope I don't get logged out!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I need headphones too! But I don't want to get up and got o my room to get them.... hehehe :P

    I had them while listening to the coachella webcast
    one.. because my parents and sister were sleeping
    and...
    second...because it sounds awesome!!!

    Cure forever!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I confess, I was hoping to get an introduction to the concert from Robert *sigh*

    ReplyDelete
  72. missing the old days.

    at least the mix is good, this must sound amazing through radio.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Heron: Yeah, me too. That was kind of an abrupt beginning of the show!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I hope I don't get logged out.:( I'll cry....(even though I already am...)

    ReplyDelete
  75. Yah V - a little strange to go from "mental hopscotch" straight into the waves. Oh well!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Oh how I miss the days of not knowing the lyrics to this song, and doing revision after revision to my attempts to decipher them. That was so much fun. : )

    ReplyDelete
  77. Craig: I still wish he said "aligned". :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. I know! They should have at least given us longer waves. : )

    ReplyDelete
  79. He should have said...
    Enjoy the show!

    That would have been awesome!!!

    ReplyDelete
  80. V: Yeah, but you still wish he said Kung Pow and Pony. : P

    ReplyDelete
  81. Craig: Oh believe me, he says "kung pao". :P

    ReplyDelete
  82. V: Sorry, Kung Pao. : P

    I still say Pony. : )

    ReplyDelete
  83. If I get logged out I'm gonna make SIRIUS radio buy me a ticket to my next Cure concert!!!! :P hehehehe

    ReplyDelete
  84. raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaain!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Sorry...

    Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaain!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Craig: I say Pony too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. This is making me sad....I NEED to see them live again!!! Its been over a year!!! :( :( :( :(

    ReplyDelete
  88. My one year anniversary of seeing them last was yesterday. Sigh. :)

    ReplyDelete
  89. Everthing is going swell on my end. Recording will be up later.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Thank you thank you !!!
    You get a big CURE HUG!!!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I saw them on May 12th 2008....
    :( I need my cure!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Aww, I'm reading the chat we had during this show. :) Sigh. :)

    ReplyDelete
  93. Aww...its so sad...
    :( :( :(

    ReplyDelete
  94. V: But our chats are so much better now then they were back then. : )

    ReplyDelete
  95. Amy just sent this in: "Cure broadcast in audio is also on Sirius channel 839 on tv for directv."

    ReplyDelete
  96. Isn't Sleep When I'm Dead next ? I was looking at the set list and thats what it said ??

    ReplyDelete
  97. Craig: True... ;)

    Though I never hear you explaining what PHTs are anymore! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  98. V and her one track mind! : P

    Penis Hugging Tights! Happy. my dear?

    ReplyDelete
  99. Craig: Of course. :D Thank you. ;)

    By the way, it appears that the show chat for this show was where I first requested you explain the PHTs. So now we have come full circle.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Yeah, they skipped Sleep. Hmm, what's up with that?

    ReplyDelete
  101. Aww!!! No!!! I hope they find out and play SWID when they replay this tomorrow!!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I doubt it's a Sirius error. The Cure provided this show to them, and probably cut it themselves. Unless it was too long and Sirius had to make some cuts.

    ReplyDelete
  103. When FTEOTDGS comes on I'm gonna cry....

    ReplyDelete
  104. Maybe?...
    I wonder if they'll say anything about it ?

    ReplyDelete
  105. Is having for dinner tonight.....

    ReplyDelete
  106. Now I have to time my drive home. I'm thinking I'll leave right after FTEOTDGS and then I'll only miss 3-4 songs! The bonus part is, I have the concert on my player and so I can keep up on the way home! :D YAY!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Sorry!!
    I meant...
    ....having me for dinner tonight....

    ReplyDelete
  108. Heron: I see you've planned this out very well. Good for you! : )

    ReplyDelete
  109. How do you already have the concert??

    ReplyDelete
  110. Craig I put it on there last year and never took it off, so it was not so much great planning as happy coincidence. :D Queueing up The Perfect Boy now...

    ReplyDelete
  111. If I get logged out half way though I'll just pick up from where I left tomorrow. ;)

    PUT HANDS IN THE SKY!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  112. sucks about SWID. I have officially been kicked out of my living room where I was recording the concert. I told them they can turn off the tv just not the recording and they're more than welcome to put a DVD on but we are not changing the satellite channel.

    Recording is still on and I'm listening to the show on my PC now via the Sirius add-on for FF.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Why am I missing so many words!!!
    I guess I'm just excited!! hehehe

    PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE SKY!

    ReplyDelete
  114. hehehe..
    But its cure time!!
    :D

    ReplyDelete
  115. Getting ready to log out and dash to the car - see you soon my lovely cure peeps!

    *hands in the sky*

    ReplyDelete
  116. By! Cure hugs!!

    Run out with you hands in the sky. ;) People will be freaked out. :P

    ReplyDelete
  117. Bye Heron! Have a safe trip and no traffic! : )

    ReplyDelete
  118. Bye.. :P
    I'm am so messed up right now. :P

    ReplyDelete
  119. Thanks for the information!
    Kisses

    ReplyDelete
  120. HOT! HOT! HOT!

    ReplyDelete
  121. If what I installed didn't work, I think I'll be logged out around A Letter To Elise. :(
    I'll stop recording but I'll still listen. ;)
    Then...tomorrow I'll record from then on!
    But I really hoping it worked.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Yay, Craig's favorite! :)

    ReplyDelete
  123. Or maybe Never Enough? Not sure...

    OH I LOVE OH I LOVE WHAT YOU DO TO ME!!

    ReplyDelete
  124. Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Worst song ever! : P

    ReplyDelete
  125. I DON'T THINK SO!

    ReplyDelete
  126. V is going to get a spanking. : P

    ReplyDelete
  127. Craig: I love what you do to me! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  128. Oh, here's Sleep now. Weird.

    ReplyDelete
  129. They had to do a last minute edit to change the "Pony" to "Bunny". :P

    ReplyDelete
  130. I don't get it?!
    This is strange...

    ReplyDelete
  131. GO GO GO! NO NO NO! PUSH IT AWAY!

    ReplyDelete
  132. Sorry...I'm way to EXCITED!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  133. V: I think you've solved yet another Cure mystery! : )

    ReplyDelete
  134. 2nd worst song ever! : P
    Bring on the dark stuff! : )

    ReplyDelete
  135. Craig: As always, Detective V is on the case. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  136. I have to go get some food...BRB

    ReplyDelete
  137. Always take a big bite, it's such a gorgeous sight to see you eat in the middle of the night! :)

    ReplyDelete
  138. Hah, that was not intended to be a reply, I was only singing! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  139. LOL!
    Ok! I'll take a BIG BITE! :P

    ReplyDelete
  140. oh ok..then I'll take a little bite..

    ReplyDelete
  141. Only to more songs...then I MIGHT get logged out...

    ReplyDelete
  142. Yay! Letter To Elise! Too bad she's sleeping right now. : )

    ReplyDelete
  143. Aww, ALTE. Where's Jo? :(

    ReplyDelete
  144. V: I would guess she's sleeping. Still early over there and a Saturday. Should I try to wake her with the Dream 13 machine? I promise not to use THAT setting! : P

    ReplyDelete
  145. Craig: I was going to suggest it, but as long as yes, you watch what kind of dreams you send her. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  146. V: Well, I could use that setting, but use Robert with it. I think she'd love a dream like that. : )

    Jo is going to kill us when she reads this. : P

    ReplyDelete
  147. What are you guys talking about ?

    ReplyDelete
  148. Great version of never enough! Is this one of the concerts Rob had a dodgy voice? If it is, they've covered it very well.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Craig: Oooh, yeah, you should do that! ;) I'm sure she'd thank you, not kill you. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  150. Beau: According to the reports that came in the night of the show, his voice was strong and well that night. :)

    ReplyDelete
  151. Ugh, NE and WN. The twins of evil!
    : P

    Two of V's favorites. : P

    ReplyDelete
  152. AWW!!!
    "are you still listening ?"
    YES!!!! I AM!!!!!!

    Now I have big beep in WN!!!!!!!!!!
    GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

    ReplyDelete
  153. Hi, just joining the chat fow a few minutes before classes take place.


    Arghh, i want to hear the show too.

    LOL, last weekend i sang by cellphone to a girl ALTE & POY and all she said was, THANKS...


    I knew that i never have to do that.

    *sighs*


    Maybe nowadays girls doesn´t like anymore that boys sing to them.

    LOL

    :|

    ReplyDelete
  154. Yes, he was still suffering with his voice, but he was doing better at this show.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Mad Bob: Did I read correctly that there was an earthquake near you today?

    ReplyDelete
  156. ^

    |
    wrong number is not his favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Mad Bob: Yes, how are things in Mexico City? I heard about the quake?

    And girls are crazy! Why do we bother with them at all? : )

    ReplyDelete
  158. Craig: Figures you'd say that! :P

    ReplyDelete
  159. V: I would know, wouldn't I? : P

    ReplyDelete
  160. this is really exciting and can't wait to upload the files for you guys.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Craig: Yeah, you have seen the craziest of the crazies. :P

    ReplyDelete
  162. Cheers :) thought he seemed maybe a little rough but not too bad. Great performance. Saying that, 100 years sounds a bit odd though, a bit tired?

    ReplyDelete
  163. I retract my previous statement about RS's voice and defer to Craig's response. :)

    ReplyDelete
  164. Oh yes, about 2.24 pm.

    Now is 6.45 pm.

    5.9 Richter degrees, but for Mexico City this degree is low, things starts to get worse if is a 6.8 or higher.

    ( Obvioulsly noboby wants such thing like that )



    I was standing and i thought i was dizzy but suddenly i felt a big shaking and a pull.

    Thank God nothing happened, everything´s calm now, but after the terrible 1985 experience most of people went mad when an earthquake is passing.



    Thanks for asking.

    ReplyDelete
  165. ah! crazy strobe lights flashing now!

    ReplyDelete
  166. Mad Bob: I'm glad to hear that it wasn't too bad and that you are okay.

    ReplyDelete
  167. when this concert was played, this song was BABY RAG DOG BOOK.

    ReplyDelete
  168. We are glad you are okay, Mad Bob! Good luck in class!

    ReplyDelete
  169. WHAT A BASSLINE TO IT'S OVER. Powerhouse.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Craig: Would this be considered a manly song?

    ReplyDelete
  171. Robert had no idea what the words were at this point. : P
