"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

I need to click the star on this Rolnick song every single time. It's a highlight of my week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 9:10am Rich in Bay Ridge:

Agree @karl - this is one of the greatest things I've ever heard and it never gets old.
  Fri. 6/22/18 9:12am ynisvitrin:

I'm sorry if thousands of people before me have asked this every Friday, but... What's the backstory with this??
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 9:14am AndrewC.:

It's just the theme tune for the show right? A long theme tune sure, but just a theme tune.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 9:15am Rich in Bay Ridge:

It's a performance by Neil Rolnick. I don't know much beyond the fact that it's great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 9:16am AndrewC.:

I confess I did have a liking for the old 6am style of show start. i.e. JA rushes in at 0559, throws on the longest song that is close at hand, and runs off to make coffee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/22/18 9:17am karlward:

Just like I don't need no instructions to know how to rock, I don't need the backstory to decide what we're gonna tell your mom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 9:17am AndrewC.:

Though sometimes I did hear rather more JM in the AM than I needed to.
  Fri. 6/22/18 9:17am COLINfromvictoriabritishcolumbiacanada:

At this rate we hear thar Rolnick piece 12 hours every year. Bravo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/22/18 9:18am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Neil Rolnick is a living, modern composer. So was Frank Zappa. Different tastes for different folks I guess. I used to HATE HATE HATE this song, now I find small bits of it interesting.
JM in the AM was kinda extreme politically from what I have heard.

good morning, enjoying the flies in the ointment

Isn't Space is the Place a Sun Ra tune?

driftmachine, new to me!

@Wild Neil: Yes, and I recommend you see the film (it's a short, and on youtube).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 10:01am northguineahills:

Well, my WC bracket is tre-effed, I had Peru and Costa Rica as my dark horses, well, that didn't pan out.

loved those creaking ship sounds in the driftmachine track

Privyet to all, one of my colleagues has taken to an interesting form of defense against my habit of playing fmu at work.

Avatar Fri. 6/22/18 10:10am Diezel Tea:

He has been playing the same 3 Evanescence songs from his laptop on repeat since Tuesday. The irony is I'm rather certain he is more sick of it than I, as I find the situation to be hilarious. CARRY ON
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 10:10am northguineahills:

@Diezel Tea: Playing my music and WFMU got me to overturn the the no headphones policy at my old job (they couldn't stand what I was playing)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 10:11am Rob (Jerzcity):

is that a defense, or just the way that people listen to evanescence normally?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 10:12am northguineahills:

I have no clue what evanescence is.......
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 10:12am Lixiviated Life:

I'm Ready !
Avatar Fri. 6/22/18 10:12am Diezel Tea:

Haha @Rob, at first I thought it was a whole album on repeat, but today I discovered it's only 3 songs on loop. @NGH I was happy with my headphones in except that it became annoying being that I'm a heavy smoker and leave my desk about every 30 minutes.
Avatar Fri. 6/22/18 10:13am Diezel Tea:

@NGH you've heard it before prolly a few years ago, radio rock band that had a pop hit
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 10:17am northguineahills:

Now I want to hear Running the Jewels collaborate w/ Turning Jewels into water + Night Jewel, and maybe even throw in Jewel for good measure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 10:18am Rob (Jerzcity):

they had that 'wake me up inside' song that sounds like linkin park i think? maybe that could be an alternate JA/AM theme song to 'wake up'
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 10:19am AndrewC.:

Your workplace had a no headphones rule, but you could just play music out loud??
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 10:20am Rob (Jerzcity):

@ngh - El-P would probably be down with that
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 10:23am northguineahills:

@Rob: Chatted w/ El-P once at a bar in Williamsburg. All of these fan girls were trying to get his attention. He waved them off and talked to me b/c I just wanted to talk about music. Solid lad!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 10:31am Devin B.:

Wow loving this Carlos Peron
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 10:34am mb:

Happy Friday all. Thx for the ezra collective earlier John Allen. Sometimes i forget where "the place" is.
Avatar Fri. 6/22/18 10:35am Diezel Tea:

Oddly I only became active on the fmu comments AFTER I left the US. We...coulda...been....friends.....
BTW the wake me up inside song is 1/3 of the dude's playlist)))

"ex-Yello" haha only on WFMU.

@NGH-Who is El-P?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/22/18 11:01am Wild Neil||Peace All:

The Fold sounds a lot like New Order. Or Depeche Mode?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 11:03am Lixiviated Life:

Doing a Viking Clap for Iceland World Cup.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 11:04am John Allen:

actually the fold sound a lot like the terminals
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 11:04am Ken From Hyde Park:

Summer Fridays are great, huh? On WFMU and life in general, I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 11:08am northguineahills:

@Wild Neil: El-P started w/ the indie hiphop group in the 90s, Company Flow. Then he started the label Def Jux, and started producing and doing solo work. He has lately been doing an eclectic hiphop pop group w/ Killer Mike called Run the Jewels, and actually is pretty decent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/22/18 11:09am Wild Neil||Peace All:

@JA-true to my style, never heard of The Terminals! Will youtube them or look them up on WFMU band browser!

i was getting the fall vibes from the fold but i'm probably just a bad person

Ken From Hyde Park: tu gatito en tu avatar is grooving to the beat!

Ah, that cat likes to play behind the beat it seems.
Aight kids I'm off, have weekends of legend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/22/18 11:14am Wild Neil||Peace All:

The reverb-or flanger/chorus?- on the fold sounded a lot like some dark wave 80's bands to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 11:18am Ken From Hyde Park:

@ngh - Goovy cat be groovin'!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/22/18 11:26am karlward:

Another week goes by and we still don't have a WFMU sponsored Mariah Carey + Saccharine Trust live in-studio performance collab.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 11:26am Chris from DC:

@Neil The Terminals are a great band. You'l want to follow up with the current related band the Renderers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 11:27am Chris from DC:

And yay, Chris Forsyth in DC tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 11:28am John Allen:

it's the potential opportunities that drive freeform radio, Karl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/22/18 11:32am Wild Neil||Peace All:

So my neighbors have about 12 chickens and now a young raccoon will not leave them alone. Their chickens' feed has attracted rats, now we have the raccoon and some skunks around. Wild freaking kingdom up in here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/22/18 11:34am Carmichael:

@Neil, you need a cobra and perhaps a wolf. If that doesn't solve the problem, at least it would be more interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/22/18 11:35am Ken From Hyde Park:

@WN - I'm sure coyotes are not far behind.
