Hello, Scott! It's always nice to see you around

As much as I love Dan's show, I am really looking forward to this show. Checked out some of your recent playlists and I really like a lot of the artists that you regularly play: Body/Head, Wooden Shjips, Cian Nugent, etc. etc. You even throw in some great dub stuff. Very cool.

Hi Scott. Your playlists are tasty and your skull-and-crossbones logo always brings a smile and a chuckle

So I heard the rumor that in 2014 the day will be officially expanded to 36 hours just to accommodate all the goodies WFMU has to offer to its listeners

...oh yeah - this is from 'How Long Has Trane Been Gone' - ? It's been posited that 'Alabama' is measure-for-measure from King's speech...

Alabama is an amazing piece of music. Guernica in sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/20/14 9:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- seems evident that it was - just as Trane did for his own text for 'Love Supreme'. Well - I'm alone - but not a dry eye in my house...

Solemn and swingin

Was just studyimg that last semester--- their styles definitely evolve from decade to decade, like Pop

I guessed right!
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 9:26pm doca:

is that true about whale songs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/20/14 9:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- received information on my part...
  Mon. 1/20/14 9:29pm P-90:

Yeah, you gotcher Duane Eddy whale songs, Chuck Berry whale songs, Martha and the Vandellas whale songs, Mamas & Papas whale songs, Byrds whale songs (example of interspecies symbiosis)...

  Mon. 1/20/14 9:33pm P-90:

Yes those "songs" are considered a form of culture, transmitted from generation to generation, and they change over time.

There were a lot of musical performances that day, before King spoke. Tryin to remember if Sister Rosetta was there
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/20/14 9:35pm fleep:

Whale songs aren't what they used to be, they use a lot of autotuna now.

Tim, this is like the best possible observation of King's Day
  Mon. 1/20/14 9:49pm P-90:

Sorry, Scott!! Thnx anyhoo
  Mon. 1/20/14 9:49pm Carmichael:

Heya Scott, my first live listen to you in a while. Nice set thus far.
  Mon. 1/20/14 9:51pm look,anbird!:

Nice interpretation of "free at last", though I'm not sure King was looking for this kind of free...
  Mon. 1/20/14 9:52pm P-90:

Oh now Im really gonna cry
  Mon. 1/20/14 9:52pm PB:

Nice segue to the great George (or at least from his one great album).
  Mon. 1/20/14 9:56pm Joe Schmoe:

Thank you
  Mon. 1/20/14 9:58pm P-90:

It's the Joe Schmoes of the world that really bring the kind if change MLK was speaking of
  Mon. 1/20/14 10:00pm P-90:

When Joe Schmoe internalizes the message, that's when the tide really turns
  Mon. 1/20/14 10:07pm P-90:

@Scott:Excellent, perfect segue to a lighter tone

Is there enough room under the covers for one more? That Bossa & Beyond got me Brazilian all over.
  Mon. 1/20/14 10:16pm Carmichael:

Sure! Cuddle up and pass the tuna!

Hey there, Tu Bu
Did you hear "I have a Dream" here a few mins ago?

Cuddle up and pass the tuna. Bump!

I am sorry I missed the speech (mash-up?) Maybe it's a good thing, I want to cry in my tuna right now.

Gotcha salty enough already.

There's something fishy about this conversation.
  Mon. 1/20/14 10:31pm P-90:

Actually, "cuddle up and pass the tuna" really encapsulates the whole Love/Sex thing, in one compact double entendre...
  Mon. 1/20/14 10:35pm P-90:

Like Jim Morrison writing a children's song

Thanks. Is your name really Chick?

Odd... that conversation went crickets before any codpiece jokes.

Where were you w/the codpiece material?

Sounds like a happy version of the Psycho shower scene...

Evening. Sounds extra nice
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 11:15pm Droll:

I thought "Jamaica Heinekens in Brooklyn" was my favorite on this CD, but my player says I listened to Aalap waaaay more. That's vocal tag-team gymnastics beyond compare...
  Mon. 1/20/14 11:18pm CuaPtT-90:

Fabio's premium, huh? Havent caught it yet, have to find a Fabio fan who got it
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 11:25pm Droll:

[ Searching YT fruitlessly ]
Apparently being on a FMU premium is insurance against being posted on YT.
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 11:26pm Kurt Gottschalk:

just totally failed the dewey remain listener challenge. punctuation sad face.
  Mon. 1/20/14 11:29pm CuaPtT-90:

Well, they're supposed to be exclusive, right?
So I figure I' ll just find a Fabio fan and let that person listen to the sounds of the sea in my shell collection, while that person lets me listen to his/her Fabio conpilation....
  Mon. 1/20/14 11:31pm CuaPtT-90:

...and yeah, if ever a post deserved a sad face emoticon...
  Mon. 1/20/14 11:39pm CuaPtT-90:

And now I'm kinda liking the name "Dewey Remain"
..while this ecstatic cadenza just keeps building! Yowza

to each his own, I guess...
  Mon. 1/20/14 11:50pm jane:

Just listening to this great show without reading playlist and had to find out who was playing because I thought I had heard that sound live.
Wow, even today those times of hearing Dewey Redman play resonate. Once, I was the live in baby sitter or child care person, whatever, for an artist's children and Dewey practiced in the loft. Whoa and now I am reminiscing- Also, David Murray, Chico Freeman and others rehearsing. Such a fantastic experience for a new to nyc teen.
And along the way met & heard Charlemagne and other composers and artists. Sort of just fell into it...looking for something better than rural suburbia
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 11:51pm Scott McDowell:

Lovely! That could change your life I would imagine!
  Mon. 1/20/14 11:52pm CuaPtT-90:

  Mon. 1/20/14 11:53pm jane:

great show, Scott. Will have to listen to archive for everything before Arp...and of course will listen to it all.
  Mon. 1/20/14 11:57pm CuaPtT-90:

@Scott. What do you call that logo?
Jolly Spindle Adapter? 45 and Crossbones?

OK...kids in bed; things put away. Let's see what's on The Long Rally. Crud, missed the whole thing. May need to visit the archive.
