For a while years ago I thought he was Val Nordine, because that's what it sounded like on the promos he cut for his programs. When I later heard of Ken Nordine, I figured he must've been Val's son! Then I thought Val was an odd name for a man, so maybe Al.

For over 30 years I've had this visceral experience listening to FMU. The names of artists always sound familiar but its sometimes dreamy. I love being able to enjoy what seems to be a new experience every time I listen.

I thought this Charlotte Gainsbourg song was going to turn into a cover of Herb Alpert’s “Rise” for a minute there
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/18/19 11:27am Joe McG:

@EFD: Nice try, Evan! I'm not playing "Rise" after it. :)

'Mixing Drinks on Aeroplanes' - Its a Mad Mad... World was on TCM this weekend. Jim Backus's character (a drunker version of Thurston Howell III) was piloting his plane and gave Buddy Hackett the controls while he went in the back to mix drinks and pass out.

I am not disappointed in the least.

Judy.. how cool.. I remember Lee Renaldo from Sonic Youth talking of WFMU this way. How you turn it on and your just blown away by something new or unexpected constantly no matter how often you listen, it's such an "experience". I so related...

Nice to hear you playing our station pals Prince Rama.
  Mon. 2/18/19 11:33am clapper:

Rama!

@Jeff Moore: I was so excited to have them on the show. And then they played Monty Hall, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/18/19 11:38am Jeff Moore:

Only in recent years did I learn that "Rise" wasn't just a thing we remembered from Herb Alpert's awkward disco phase; it had apparently also had a life as the accompaniment to a famous soap opera rape scene, and then became the victim's sort of leitmotif... do I have that right?

Howdy do, everyone. Great show, Joe!

What a wonderful tribute this morning to Ken Nordine, Joe. We noticed that his granddaughter, Maya, had tweeted about his passing and asked that people listen to his records today. Replied to say that you had done just that for the entirety of your opening set. All best...

Powerful cover :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 2/18/19 11:49am Cmurtha:

I am sure this will have a far better drum solo than the actual song does, though I assume based on the time left it won't reach the 17ish minutes of the original

If I ever did a 70s Rockumentary I would have The rest of the band go out for dinner during the drum solo.
