Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09am Guillermo--:

morning Emily and all, love this track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10am Guillermo--:

Jaki Liebzeit on drums :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12am Emily L:

Love! Hey Guillermo! Thnx for kicking off the week here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13am Guillermo--:

Emily, can't think of a better way to do it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22am Guillermo--:

And now some Rammellzzee!!
  3:22am David in London:

Morning Emily and all Bedheads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24am Emily L:

Happy Bedtime to all. Cheers, David!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26am Guillermo--:

Did B-Real from Cypress Hill get his sound from this track? Rammell really had some serious style!! STYLE WARS!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30am Stanley:

Mornington Emily, Guillermo and David.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31am Emily L:

Yesss! Crucial. I forgot about Style Wars! Morning, Stanley
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31am Guillermo--:

Morning Stanley and David
  3:35am David in London:

Morning Stanloid and Guillermo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37am Stanley:

It's the start to a very busy week, for me. Lots of work plus personal stuff.
At least we have got The Cabs going.
  3:38am yen:

now thats what i call music to spazz to
  3:38am David in London:

I have a wonderful memory of listening to Witt’s Der Goldener Reiter sitting on the quayside in Munster one night night with friends, smoking some ‘jazz cigarettes’ and listening to the music echo out across the water. My favourite of his for that reason I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39am Guillermo--:

I'll take these Cabs anytime, Stan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40am Stanley:

Great stuff, David.
Soundtrack to my yoof, Guillermo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41am Stanley:

Followed nicely by THe Pop Group
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42am Emily L:

Dreamy, Guillermo. Another killer cut
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45am Guillermo--:

Great set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07am fionnland:

Morning, Emily, Guillermo, David, Stanley, yen, and other Bedheads! Happy Monday!
  4:08am David in London:

O bless you Emily for playing AR Kane. The great lost British band of the Eighties. I saw them supporting Swans and, I have to say, they outplayed them totally (and I was a massive Swans fan, then and now). No one could work out whether they were still tuning up. They were astonishing. And My Bloody Valentine were just a jangly pop band until they saw AR Kane play. Chapeau.
  4:10am Malcolm:

Morning Emily, Guillermo, David, Fionnland, Stanley, yen
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13am Emily L:

Genius, David!
  4:13am David in London:

Fionnland, Malcolm, groovers incoming! Morning to you both.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20am Craig in MoTown:

Morning all. Great music to wake up to Emily, well needed. Please a little more volume on your mic during break, I want to hear you. Thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20am Stanley:

Greets from Leith, fionnland and Malcolm
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28am Scott67:

G'day Emily & Bedfellows!
From a Monday night down under. 😎
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38am David (in London):

Any week which starts with Les Rallizes Dénudés is going to be a good one.
Avatar 4:39am Malcolm:

great song title
Avatar 4:39am Malcolm:

album title i mean! ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am Scott67:

David, I heartily concur! And I've never heard them before. I will be changing that! 😎
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am Emily L:

Well said, David
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43am Guillermo--:

this band is Great! so powerful.. cheers for playing them Emily.
  4:46am Ontario Canada:

i feel bad for everyone who's not listening.
Avatar 4:47am Barnaby:

@David: totally agree. Good morning all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47am David (in London):

Scott67 - This is quite a commercial track for them...
  4:48am Ontario Canada:

CSI Canada: i burnt some soup and dumped it in the storm drain. Just realized some of the evidence is on my foot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48am David (in London):

And not many bands have a bass player who has to skip town after hijacking an airliner...

Morning Barnaby!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53am Scott67:

David, I look forward to discovering their less commercial stuff then. 😎
Avatar 5:01am slugluv1313:

greetings and good morning/evening, Emily and Skeletons and Bedtime dwellers!
loving the music/vibes -- my "sleep patterns" are all nutty! so i am so grateful for WFMU, and so happy to be listening and here with you all :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03am David (in London):

I have to say, this show has very rapidly established itself as one of the week's 'must hears' in this house.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05am Scott67:

Heya slugluv!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05am Emily L:

thnx, all! Big ups to the selfless skeleton crew
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07am Scott67:

David I have locked it in as must hear every Monday night here mate! 👍
  5:07am Ontario Canada:

maybe they'd prefer tp be called something other than skeletons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07am Stanley:

Agreed, David (clickies show in program schedule)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08am Scott67:

Ontario, skellies are cool man! 💀
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10am Stanley:

Especially as they now have their own anthem by Skeleton Crüe:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16am Scott67:

Sitting in the dark with my dog on the back verandah watching a tropical storm roll in, after a 100 degree day.
Emily, you've provided a perfect accompaniment. ❤🌏
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17am Scott67:

Gamelan!! Could it get more perfect?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19am David (in London):

Scott 67, whereabouts are you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19am Emily L:

Thanks, Scott!! Very far from Australian summer here
  5:20am Ontario Canada:

Broadcasting from the Milky Way, it's WFMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21am Scott67:

David, Australia, Bendigo, Victoria to be precise.
Avatar 5:21am slugluv1313:

hiya Scott67!
early COLD Monday morning here! a tropical storm sounds kinda fun right now :)
Emily, your show is the perfect soundtrack, either way (AND i think time differences are FINALLY sinking in to my goofy old brain, kinda by default?)
Avatar 5:22am slugluv1313:

yes GAMELAN <3 <3 <3
(from Japan? gotta research this more, not familiar!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23am Guillermo--:

this Ito Masyitoh is incredible.. hypnotising
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23am Stanley:

Haha Scott67, I read Bendingo and it made me laugh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23am Scott67:

Indonesia mainly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25am Scott67:

Hahaha! Stanley 😆🐾
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28am David (in London):

Scott, gotcha. Love Australia and it people. One of my absolute best friends another Victoria local (though from Tassie originally). Give the place a wave from me.
  5:30am Ontario Canada:

I find these drum solos work well with an old cheddar.
Avatar 5:34am slugluv1313:

yes, just did some quick searches -- Itoh Masyitoh was born in Indonesia -- gotta track down this whole album!
Avatar 5:36am Malcolm:

I've been reading about gamelan in david toop's book 'ocean of sound' so it was good to actually hear some!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37am Scott67:

David, 👋waving away merrily here. I lived in Hobart for a couple of years in my 20's. Love Tasmania!
Also wandered about Britain & lived in N. Ireland for a year in 92. .Thinking about you all in these tough times. Hope you & yours are all safe & well mate. ❤
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40am Scott67:

slugluv, well found! My ears didn't deceive me, I will be tracking it down too!
  5:41am Ontario Canada:

Dear WFMU: is it unreasonable to start a load of laundry at 6am?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42am Stanley:

Sounds great where you are, Scott.
We nearly moved to Melbourne when my partner was offered a job at the university, there but stayed in the UK for the aged ps (sigh)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42am David (in London):

Scott 67, nice one mate. We did a road trip right around Tassie and it was one of the happiest times of my life I think. Really need to get back to Oz again before too long. Though sadly that's a little, ahem, unlikely at the moment...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43am Guillermo--:

never realized this Niagara was so good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44am Scott67:

slugluv, check out this from Bali.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47am Scott67:

Stanley, Bendigo, 140km from Melbourne.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48am Scott67:

David & Stanley, you'd both be most welcome at mine, if/when you pop over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50am David (in London):

Scott, I look forward to it my friend.

Right, gotta get onto a call now sadly. Te Emily, and have a good week everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52am Emily L:

Te! Cheers everyone. Loved having you here
  5:53am eric from lake hiawatha:

Perfect Monday morn song thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53am Guillermo--:

wonderful show, thanks!
Avatar 5:53am HyperDose:

The video for this where he talks about losing his mom and performs this live breaks your heart. But it's so sooo good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54am Guillermo--:

sung from the heart
Avatar 5:54am slugluv1313:

@Scott67 -- right? GORGEOUS music!
and yes, Gamelan is (mostly) from Indonesia -- just that i thought that Itoh Masyitoh's name was Japanese?
Gamelan Sekar Jaya is a PHENOMENAL Balinese Gamelan ensemble, based in San Fransisco -- i totally lucked out when i was able to see them live at Queens College, NYC, some years ago:
(i think my first introduction to Balinese/Indonesian dance, music, arts, etc. was through some of my Mom's books, and maybe some PBS specials when i was a little kid in the 60s/early 70s -- i SO wanted to move to Bali so i could be one of those incredible Balinese dancers! unfortunately my poor suburban NJ parents had NO idea what to do with me, and were not going to make that happen, hah!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54am fionnland:

Te! Emily, cracking show! Have a fab week, Bedheads!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55am Scott67:

Cheers David.
  5:55am Malcolm:

Another great show ta Emily!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55am BVP:

this song was made for Charles Bradley. ugh, ow, sing it brother. Thanks Emily L. Somebody!
Avatar 5:56am slugluv1313:

ooooo LOVE Charles Bradley's version of "Changes" (maybe even better than Black Sabbath's?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56am Stanley:

Thanks, Scott, would love to
Bye Emily and everyone.
Wishing you a good week.
Most enjoyable start to mine, thanks again.
Take care.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57am Scott67:

Take care Stanley.
Avatar 5:57am HyperDose:

Absolutely Guillermo! Thanks for providing this lovely and most cherished song to wake up to, Emily.
  5:58am seth from muddy creek:

This is an awesome set. Thanks so much FMU superheros.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59am Scott67:

slugluv, great stuff man! I learned Indonesian & Indonesian Art at High School. Just don't ask me to speak it now. I know more French, & that ain't much!
Avatar 6:00am slugluv1313:

@ Scott67 -- oh yes! the Monkey Chant -- thank you!
have a bunch of LPs of the music, some from Tower Records when they still had an "International" department (pre-"World Music")
there was also a PBS series called Spice Island Saga (1980s?) -- i fell in love with the Komodo Dragons too :)
Avatar 6:00am slugluv1313:

wonderful show, Emily -- thank you so much!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00am Scott67:

Thanks for your brilliance Emily! Consider me a regular now! ❤
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02am Scott67:

Gotta luv a big lizard slugluv!
