Hey, Duane - how's tricks? This sounds mighty fine.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:05pm Nathan:

Duananananananane.. the sound those antenna-like fender feelers make when you get too close to the curb.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:06pm Duane:

Hey fellas! What's going On? Happy Hump day!
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:07pm dc pat:

  Wed. 5/2/12 12:08pm paula pc:

  Wed. 5/2/12 12:09pm allan:

  Wed. 5/2/12 12:11pm Caryn:

Ahh, my weekly dose of Duane awesomeness has finally arrived...
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:11pm allan:

my hump hurts
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:12pm dc pat:

Kingstonians, Winston Francis thumbs up. Great junk.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:14pm Nathan:

Nada mucho... about to start stewing up a Chilli con Carne for dinner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/12 12:14pm Liz B.:

Ali Baba! Best reggae song ever!
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:15pm northguineahills:

Yeah, I love this John Holt tune as well!
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:15pm robyn:

good morning everyone...
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:15pm Swan:

Best. Rhythm. Evar.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:16pm Swan:

Version On, Duane!
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:19pm Athena:

awesome show, duane.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:19pm Cecile:

what she said.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:19pm Jeremy Shatan:

Fantastic start! You set yourself a high bar, my man. Just perfect.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:21pm Cheri Pi:

What all the above said.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:22pm vanessa:

i can feel the sand between my toes and the hot sun on my face . . . just what i needed! thanks, D!
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:25pm Mike East:

I feel wet socks on my feet...which tells me, sadly, that there's a hole in my boots. Enjoying the reggae, though.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:25pm Miller:

Illyah Kuryakin is the best tune yet, on par with Ali Baba.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:26pm allan:

vibin...so tired going to fall asleep at my desk. music keep me swaying. like weekend at bernie's 2...
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:26pm dc pat:

merely repeating what others have uttered...

Ilyah Kuryakin? Man, I use to watch Man from UNCLE
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:27pm Caryn:

Well, Illyah was a cool dude, so a track named after him is bound to be good.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:28pm Cecile:

Johnny Nash!
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:28pm Miller:

My name is Ilya, btw)
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:30pm Caryn:

I always thought Napoleon Solo was a total square, but Ilyah was cool with his longer hair, turtlenecks and tight t-shirts.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:31pm allan:

awesome this john jones is my fav after ali baba. maybe play it 2 or 3 more times.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:33pm dc pat:

yeah, we loved Kuryakin, his gun was really cool too. Didn't give a damn about Solo
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:41pm Denise from DC:

I never noticed his gun -- I just liked his hair.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:43pm Caryn:

I think we can all agree that Solo sucked and Kuryakin ruled. Even as kids, we all had great taste, apparently.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:43pm robyn:

i know almost nothing about reggae. i do like "ok fred."
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:44pm Caryn:

Dammit, the stream is down...
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:45pm paul:

flash stream is down but other streams work
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:46pm Jeremy Shatan:

Well, Robyn, you just got an 11 song expert course to get you started on your reggae exploration!
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:47pm Cecile:

flash is being flaky for me, too.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:47pm βrian:

Is the streaming service down?
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:48pm robyn:

i know! i ain't complaining. even more educational than usual. :) stream is still working for me on Songbird, btw.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:48pm βrian:

No mp3 service here.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:55pm dc pat:

I have 128k loud and clear.

Kuryakin's gun was this german pistol with a long silencer, shoulder stock, and s scope on it. My brother had a model of it.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:56pm Jeremy Shatan:

I'm listening through iTunes and it's been flawless.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:57pm dc pat:

man I like that Ralph Robles tune..something about a double bass
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:57pm northguineahills:

You can never steer wrong w Folkways recs.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:57pm Caryn:

@dc pat: yep, that was a cool gun.
  Wed. 5/2/12 12:58pm βrian:

Still nada, but wxyc is coming in strong ...
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:00pm Duane:

Ilyah was one of my Uncle Derrick's fashion hero according to my Dad
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:01pm Jeremy Shatan:

It's amazing how many great soul versions there are of this song - I bet even Robbie Krieger is surprised! I love Erma Franklin's take.
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:02pm Duane:

Jeremy Shatan: Yes, Erma's version is awesome!!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:07pm dale:

i've always loved this version of who tune

  Wed. 5/2/12 1:09pm Jeremy Shatan:

I didn't realize Percy was still working when Summer Breeze came out. Perfect sound for a bittersweet ending to an episode of the Rockford Files.
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:09pm Adler:

we are doing some maintenance. flash live and mp4 archives are down now
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:09pm mikebee:

Great show as usual Duane! Greetings from San Francisco. :)
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:10pm Duane:

Thank you mikebee:) Cheers!!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:13pm Neg-guh-tor:

This Swing Out song is dangerously close to Lisa Stansfield Duane! Don't make me like her!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:14pm dale:

whatever became of basia?
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:15pm Neg-guh-tor:

Don't make me like Basia, Duane!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:16pm Neg-guh-tor:

I'm too old to reconsider Basia!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:17pm Caryn:

@dale: ooh, nice horns and harmonies! Nice version, thanks!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:17pm Duane:

Neg-guh-tor: I got some Lisa for ya :) Kiddin!
Dale: Basia's got a great Francois K12" remix of "New day for you" that kicks!
Neg-guh-tor: Basia's a tougher sale than Lisa, but I can drop Basia on ya subliminal stylee
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:19pm Neg-guh-tor:

  Wed. 5/2/12 1:19pm dale:

right caryn? new seekers totally blew it out of the water!!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:21pm dale:

i never knew minnie ripperton was singing 'maya' on that surreal note. learned that a couple weeks ago from late great pete fornatele
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:22pm Cecile:

Gotta go, can't get any music here so I will catch you on archives.
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:24pm Neg-guh-tor:

I can fly!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:24pm Duane:

Ah well, Cecile! Thanx for swingin by..Thanx for the swag btw!!!!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:24pm Cecile:

not a problem, enjoy in good health!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:24pm Denise from DC:

This Dino, Desi and Billy tune is lovely.
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:26pm mikebee:

entire office here in SF remarking how great the show is today - including one staffer who says this is the only show on WFMU she's ever liked, but I don't think the rest of us agree with that...plus forcing us to discuss Swing Out Sister is always a plus. I agree Lisa is an easier sell - you've got Coldcut production behind her earliest stuff!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:27pm Adler:

flash stream and pop-up player are back online
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:28pm Caryn:

@dale: damn straight! Now I actually need to hunt out the album.
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:29pm Duane:

Hahaha! Cheers MikeBee. I'm a huge Swing Out Sister apologist. They have some of the best arrangements in Pop music. Jimmy Webb did all the arrangements for Kaleidoscope World, where "Heart for Hire" is from. SPotty record with awesome moments.
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:29pm dale:

tony and the tigers could totally beat up dino desi and billy. they were two thirds of tin machine!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:32pm paula pc:

here's Part 2...Rance MEANS it!!!!!!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:33pm Nathan:

This is a good'un. This could almost be a piano house tune. Need that a'capella.
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:33pm Duane:

yessir Paula..he's a big dude too! so you bettr listen!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:33pm seang:

i rode through the valley with the princess by my side
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:37pm Cecile:

not to mention, dale, that they were in Runt as well, backup on the two of the best Todd Rundgren albums.
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:37pm Cecile:

flash is back, flash is cool
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:41pm Cecile:

8 minutes!
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:45pm Cecile:

will this comp mean that they will reissue the whole 8 minutes album, or are the 2 tracks on there just the good ones?
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:47pm dale:

i did not know that re: the sales boys
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:47pm Duane:

no there's only like 3 songs on that whole thing. the albums good though cecile
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:48pm Cecile:

I will have to seek it out. It's probably ridiculously expensive, isn't it?
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:49pm Duane:

Cecile: It's pricey, but they have torrents out there floating
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:50pm Cecile:

I might have to float on the torrents.
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:53pm Cecile:

later, off to lunch
  Wed. 5/2/12 1:55pm Mike East:

ooh, lunch. good idea. Tuna sandwich, here I come.
  Wed. 5/2/12 2:34pm Wildcat:

Somewhere off in the cold distance...
  Wed. 5/2/12 2:36pm Duane:

  Wed. 5/2/12 2:37pm Duane:

here kitty..
  Wed. 5/2/12 2:38pm kate:

this need to be my theme song
  Wed. 5/2/12 2:48pm Cecile:

quiet storm!
  Wed. 5/2/12 2:52pm paula pc:

this is a vamp-heavy set!
  Wed. 5/2/12 2:52pm Denise from DC:

Oh em gee, I didn't know Etta had done this song. This is a bang-up version.
  Wed. 5/2/12 2:54pm Parq:

That wasn't the Etta version of "Hat" that I've heard; didn't know there was more than one.
  Wed. 5/2/12 2:54pm Mike East:

Fabulous show as usual Duane
  Wed. 5/2/12 2:55pm paula pc:

or not...
  Wed. 5/2/12 2:55pm paula pc:

altho I always thought Mike Nesmith was a little vampy...
  Wed. 5/2/12 2:56pm Duane:

paula pc: Hahaha.
Thanx Mike East!
  Wed. 5/2/12 2:58pm paula pc:
