Hey, why not archive these jonks? Is it Yo La's legal-legals gumming up the process? I gotta work, so's I can't tune in! :(

Ken Katkin

Once again, I kept score at home this year as Yo La Tengo performed another All-Request WFMU Marathon Set. This year, YLT played more oldies and obscurities than in past years, and I was unable to identify two or three of the songs. Any help would be welcome! YLT's performance was nonetheless heroic and exciting, as usual. Here's what I wrote down:

DAMN, what a setlist! Why can't these be saved? My fault for checking in on what I missed out on I guess!

No la tengo

show not archived at the band's request.

After corresponding with Ira Kaplan, I filled in the remaining blanks in my draft set list and corrected a few errors. This corrected list should be a complete and final record of Yo La Tengo's 2012 WFMU All-Request Marathon Set, which aired live on Pseu Braun's show on WFMU on Friday March 2, 2012:

Bruce Bennett

Ken - A-Bomb Bop is originally by Mike Fern and was actually requested as such by "Robin and Andy" from "Manhattan."

Ken Katkin

Bruce--Thanks! You're probably not surprised to learn that I could not identify either an A-Bones original or an obscure cover within the A-Bones repertoire. So I am especially grateful for the correction. And thanks for playing another fantastic set!

Bruce Bennett

Ken - Thanks for putting the words "A-Bones" and "original" in the same sentence. Doesn't happen too often. Also, thanks for doing the thankless and compiling the set-list every year. Lends dignity to an otherwise awkward enterprise.
