Postwar atmospherica.

Love this one, LD
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:03pm Little Danny:

That was a sublime edition of the Explorer's Room, Flash!
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 10:04pm hyde:

hello! i'm afeared i can only stay this week even less time than usual. but i'm here now and, in some sense, will be here later
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 10:05pm Flash Strap:

Thanks Danny. You spoil me with kind words my friend. If you're not careful you might improve my self esteem
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:06pm Little Danny:

Delighted to bend yer ear for even a minute Hyde!
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 10:06pm Flash Strap:

wow this is a good one here
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 10:09pm Flash Strap:

so cool to hear these quiet village bits repurposed
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:11pm JtotheK:

hello everyone -- Flash, I caught the first 1/2 of your program, have to check out the rest via archives - some really great tunes!
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 10:12pm Flash Strap:

Thanks JK!

LD: so cool to hear Denny himself describe basically just exactly how exotica works. what a find, man
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:12pm Little Danny:

Greetings J2tK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:13pm Little Danny:

@Flash, "Quiet Village" got repurposed by several different R&B and surf acts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:14pm Little Danny:

I know, I love how Denny builds out that tone poem motif by motif
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:15pm JtotheK:

had to google 'crown zellerbach'. always learning thanks to WFMU...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:21pm Little Danny:

wtf is the "soft life"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:23pm JtotheK:

excellent question. speaking of Twin Peaks -- I finished 'The Secret History of Twin Peaks' book a few weeks ago. Worth a read!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:23pm JtotheK:

Now, have to re-watch the show to prep for the new season...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:24pm Little Danny:

When exactly is the new season scheduled to appear? And are you nervous about it like me?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:26pm JtotheK:

not sure what the air date will end up being...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:29pm JtotheK:

nervous... a bit, i suppose. i didn't see the show when it aired originally, watched it when the dvd's came out. (and the movie on dvd.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:29pm melinda:

nice sounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:29pm JtotheK:

so i don't have 20+ years of build up to live up to, only 10-ish years of expectations. ha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:30pm Little Danny:

Hi Melinda, and thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:31pm Little Danny:

Yeah I'm in the same boat J2tK
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 10:31pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Danny and post-explorers
...i like what's going on here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:33pm Little Danny:

Hello coelacanth! I do too!
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 10:42pm Dano59:

ipod set to WFMU app and wired into the stereo. Tuned in, in more ways than one. Love Arthur Lyman, M. Denny like crazy, and played a jimmy Scott Fire Walk With Me track on my own show last week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:46pm Little Danny:

Thanks Dano! God I love the Fire Walk... soundtrack and that Scott track in particular
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:47pm Scraps deSelby:

h'lo
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:47pm JtotheK:

was mentioning on Explorer's Room board that i tend to listen to 50s/60s jazz during the winter time... was thinking of spinning 'Mambo with Tjader' around the house this weekend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:47pm Little Danny:

Scraps! I dig your new assumed surname
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:50pm Little Danny:

Yeah, totally, j2tk. Cal Tjader's early stuff is so warm. Maybe it just makes me imagine some cozy nightclub
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:53pm JtotheK:

tjader's 'tjader plays afro-cuban' 10" is a good one, too. you're right - any of his early stuff is worth a listen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:55pm melinda:

I like melancholy folk/folk rock during the winter months.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 10:57pm geezerette:

This set is so moody and rich.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:58pm Little Danny:

I dig where you're coming from Melinda. Any particular artists/titles you'd recommend?
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 10:58pm Flash Strap:

I'm sort of away from the comments, LD, but all-in on the tunes. This show's been great, great, grand
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 10:59pm geezerette:

melinda, same here. And blues, jazz...
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:03pm still b/p:

Enjoying all this -- and a star-click for Senor Blues was irresistible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:03pm melinda:

@Danny: I like Fairport Convention's self-titled album. Bridget St. John. Judee Sill. Also, I find a lot of new-to-me 'loner folk' on Micah's show, Fridays at 9 am.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:05pm Little Danny:

Thanks, and oh man, Bridget St. John. Such a favorite. One of the most beautiful voices in UK folk
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:05pm Little Danny:

Evenin' still b/p! You have excellent proper tastes
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:08pm melinda:

There's a nice 3-CD set that came out this year or last called Dust on the Nettles: a Journey Through the British Underground Folk Scene 1967-72.
  Thu. 12/8/16 11:11pm Dean:

Did you see my earlier message today about Dust on the Nettles to you, melinda?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:12pm melinda:

No, not today. Were you the one who discovered a 4-disc set?
  Thu. 12/8/16 11:13pm Dean:

I didn't discover one. I found evidence of one, but it turns out there was never a fourth disc. Cherry Red confirms it has always been three. My suspicion is that the site where I saw the reference (inc. a track list!) was bootlegging it.
  Thu. 12/8/16 11:13pm Dean:

Thus, I ordered my copy direct from them today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:14pm melinda:

Interesting. At least now we know we're not missing out! I ordered direct from them too.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:16pm geezerette:

nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:17pm melinda:

I also like melancholy film scores in winter. Thanks to WFMU I learned about Tariverdiev and got the box set of his works that came out recently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:17pm Little Danny:

Thanks for the tip on Nettles, Melinda! It's new to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:18pm melinda:

This is beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:18pm Little Danny:

Ah, geezerette! So glad you're here
  Thu. 12/8/16 11:19pm Dean:

I confess, I am now playing a CD on the home system to lull my kids to sleep. It is Jordi Savall's recital of John Dowland's Lacrimae. If you're melancholy, it'll do ya.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:20pm Little Danny:

Thanks, Melinda - it's a 45 I picked up quite recently. Don't know anything about it except that the address listed on the label is Birmingham, Michigan
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:20pm Little Danny:

Got some Bridget St. John lined up for you Melinda
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:21pm melinda:

Ah, Chelsea Girl is also a cold weather favorite album. Thanks for all the folky stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:23pm melinda:

There was some discussion on another comment board recently about the similarity between Bridget and Nico.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:25pm coelacanth∅:

funny, melinda - i was reading an email about that Nico discussion just now as this song started.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:25pm geezerette:

Love Nico. A hot mug of tea with a drop of rum would be lovely too, might do that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:26pm JtotheK:

gonna catch the rest via archives -- thanks for the tunes, Danny - enjoyed them! good night everyone.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:27pm coelacanth∅:

- i guess i can say i really Love SOME Nico.
-3 of her albums, i think.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:27pm geezerette:

stay warm,JtotheK.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:27pm coelacanth∅:

gnight JK
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:29pm Little Danny:

@J2tK, thanks for the ears - g'night!
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:29pm geezerette:

hi coel, don't have her albums apart from VU, but whenever I hear her I listen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:30pm melinda:

This is really nice.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:33pm coelacanth∅:

ah this album.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:34pm geezerette:

melinda, I remember the discussion began with similarity between Bridget St. John & Nico. How funny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:35pm melinda:

What a great title for a compilation!
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:37pm coelacanth∅:

g, i have a few, and i've heard the rest...doesn't make me qualified, but i like marble index, desertshore, and chelsie girls - probably in that order.
her singing is the least off-key on those and the influence of John Cale and of Tom Wilson are most apparent on those, which is a good thing.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:38pm coelacanth∅:

(damn i keep misspelling "chelsea" and saying "girls")
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:39pm geezerette:

Great info coel! thank you!
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:40pm coelacanth∅:

(i'd lend you my cds and vinyl, except for the 3000 miles apart thing.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:40pm melinda:

@coel: I don't know the other albums but yeah, the producer/musicians for Chelsea Girl really made a difference. I like the alternate chelsie spelling. I didn't know anything about Tom Wilson until Irwin started playing his shows.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

i knew his basic story, read many liner notes he made; but never heard those shows. they're pretty amazing.
- what a cool guy.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:42pm geezerette:

we all need teleportation.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:44pm coelacanth∅:

loving this set Danny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:44pm melinda:

I probably have some albums with his liner notes but my turntable has been in a box under a bunch of stuff for the last 13 years, so I haven't been reading album covers for a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:45pm Little Danny:

Thanks Coel!
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:46pm geezerette:

Danny, loved the early winter mood.
Good night all.
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:47pm coelacanth∅:

this is how smart i am... when i was little and i'd read liner notes by Tom Wilson, i always assumed it was Brian and Dennis Wilson's father!
- and when i read liner notes by Ralph Gleason always got him confused with Jackie Gleason!
DUH!
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:52pm coelacanth∅:

oh, goodnight g.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:53pm melinda:

Time to hit the sack. Thanks for the tunes, Danny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:54pm Little Danny:

G'night Melinda - thanks for inspiring my folk/folk-rock set!
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:54pm coelacanth∅:

'night melinda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:55pm Little Danny:

Thanks as always geezerette!
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:57pm Dano59:

still here, listening, relaxing, exotically. Velvet cushions, the whole bit. (no animal prints, though)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 11:59pm Little Danny:

That is a perfect vision Dano
Avatar Fri. 12/9/16 12:02am coelacanth∅:

Excellent program Danny!
Thanks.
good night all.
