A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Linda Lee, this is a perfect place to experience the return of the light at Solstice. It is a noticable difference when the daylight starts to increase.

@Earthling, you don't get the darkness due to city lights, maybe?

I didn't hear it in person, but I heard a story where someone overheard someone else saying "this music is too funky!"

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS "TOO FUNKY".

Had to stop my grading for this. Back in one of my incarcerations, I used to “club”. My best friend, who was a great dancer, would leave the dance floor she James brown cane on. For him, JB, was too fast.

Maybe the DJ has high standards for dancing?

Maybe the DJ was telling the person they were talking to that THEY can't dance??? Not even to JB???

@chas, I first got turned onto WFMU in NYC while working for a guy who listened all day everyday, and then a few years later I met WFMU DJ Zoe B. through a close friend and got totally obsessed with her show. Now I listen all day everyday. It just gets better and better. :) Luckily I work doing shipping at a rare book store and can tune in all day.

My introduction to WFMU was when my best friend moved to Williamsburg and was in a goofy old-time string band with Ian Christe… the rest is heavy metal history?!?!?

My senior year of college, I read an article about WFMU, and it said they streamed online. Since my work had better internet at the time, I worked late, and plugged in, and then I could hear the tinny stream (it was '98). I haven't stopped listening. Then I moved to NYC in 2 years, and met the people that made it happen....

Hi Spicy Tuna! Things get goofy, that's life! Just took a while to figure out that it's thursday ( thoroughly modern ) If you can't dance to Trouble's music today there's something wrong. DJ Trub's shows aren't always dance o matic but today is FINE ( I bet it is probably as dark and cloudy in PNW as in Finland, you know we can use all the funk and soul that we can get! ) Thanx T for the killer dance muxic
