I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Listener comments!


Hello Bryce. Ths signal is strong. Keep doing a good show.

Very nice music. Sounded like Terry Riley.


Check this source:
north guinea hills:

hugo, you rock!

One more (and closer to home, as it were):


Today, my job (almost) makes me want to die, but this music makes me want to live.
R. P.:

It's appropriate that some music considered "cutting edge" today sounds like music made hundreds of years ago in Burma.

The Jew's Harp in my throat is greatly appreciative.

But there seems to be a little confusion about the area of residence of the Murung. I have to agree with the poster on the WFMU blog that if they reside in the forest hills close to Burma, then that would have to be in the East/South East, most likely in the Chittagong Hill Tracts. Sorry folks, it's the old Asia hand peeking through here ...

the music's thrilling, though - Bryce sure knows how to find 'em ...

hugo's on it! these guys are tibeto-burmesey for sure. bengal got all britishly drawed up around them, paving the way for future evil: unending bengladeshi resettlement asshattery. hooray for men.

dude- peruvian flutes sound like that too

i think they travel across the pacific-- i want to know more about that comunication between asia and south american music-- some words of quechua are the same in chinese-- if you have some more information please let me know
Ken from Hyde Park:

Drummed message seems pretty soft (not very loud). I can barely hear it. Is it going to suddenly louden up and scare my co-workers?

depends. what continent are you on?

i am from Peru- and i am here now

check this peruvian video!------http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=WNmq-12BrJY&feature=related

hey bruce you are always awsome, but today the show is just amazing. All my senses are shaken
Bad Ronald:

Manhattan checking in...

bryce, any east african music out there that isn't jangly guitars?

I've been waiting my whole life for a show like this

I'll Second the motion. Today's show is kicking my ass all around the room. Keep it coming!

This last set of Central African pygmies music is nothing less than astounding. I've never heard anything like it. Mind-bending!

oh it's mind bending all right

If it weren't for you, your show and WFMU I'd have to waste my time in reality and that would trully suck. Thank you.

all this stuff, from the fmu library. what a racket!

And NICK - get back to work!

i am enjoying these plinks

WFMU is my reality whats wrong with that. no one judges me here. hoo ooh ooowww yteaaah
Bad Ronald:

No mind to bend here but I did bend my Wookie!!!

i don't know what a wookie is but it sounds like that hurts

oh no. don't be confused, please. i think the song is ending.

thanks for the good vibes, everyone....
