Si Si, No! No!
  9:11am Boris:

Da Da
  9:12am Hugo:

"Home of vinyl retentives"

Yep, I'd go along with that ...
  9:12am Unclear on the concept:

I dunno, songs like this Blind Alfred make me sad somehow.
  9:18am Paul Sherratt:

Ya Ya !
  9:18am texas scott:

I was blind,but now I see.
  9:25am Jake:

leading with the blind!
  9:26am JcJensen:

morning y'all - I missed it - what's up this theme?
  9:27am Cecile:

morning Drummer Some Coffee Club!
  9:29am Drummer Some:

Top of the morning, y'all:
OK, you smarty pantses, who can guess what the talkover music is gonna be?
  9:32am Unclear on the concept:

The main title theme from "Monsoon Wedding"?
  9:33am JCJensen:

WOW - B. I. God havent heard them in yeeeearsss - thanks!
  9:34am Cecile:

Snowblind by Black Sabbath?
  9:41am dc pat:
  9:44am annie:

sorry, no so apt; when i see bright red and exclamation points, i shut that damn window.. what is it, anyway?
  9:45am north guinea hills:

thank god i don't have to PANIC! here in nyc.
  9:45am Cecile:

Aw, you got a bunch of snow, eh?

I loved Scharpling's rant this week about Chapel Hill being closed down after a snowstorm: "Panera Bread! Shame!"
  9:46am Cecile:

Doug, why can't there be a real Conjunto Casino?
Great Latin music and food while you gamble away your life's savings...

Or in my case, the roll of nickels I allow myself when I'm dragged to those places.
  9:47am Bad Ronald:

OK, I'm panicking. What next, frenzy?
  9:48am dc pat:

that's just how we deal with snow in DC. Not a flake has fallen yet and the grocery stores are packed and some schools are closed....
  9:49am Drummer Some:

Cecile, I think you are essentially describing pre-1960 Havana.
  9:50am Paul Sherratt:

Panera Bread " No alcohol service and grease-free environment "
  9:55am Sighmon and Darkfunkel:

Where have you gone, ol' Fulgencio,
Our nation lost its party ties with you..
  9:55am Cecile:

I think you are right. My dad has a lot of stories about that - he was in Miami as a Marine in the late 50s.
  9:56am annie:

yup, pat, i dig ya...
  10:06am north guinea hills:

It's been awhile since NYC has gotten at least 18 inches of snow... :(
  10:09am dc pat:

hey those happy white people on the home page are listening to Bo Diddley...
  10:10am ken:

i picked paul bley up at the des moines airport in 1978 and hung out with him while he did his gig at grinnell college. he had never been to des moines and seemed genuinely moved by the experience.
  10:12am Nat:

Grinnell College in the house!
  10:12am Cecile:

that's really cool, ken
  10:13am ken:

kdic -- 11 watts of power. radio in the cornfields. bley was very cool.
  10:20am Nat:

Yes, ken! I am, in fact, a former kdic dj. I'm glad you both had a good experience there. wfmu and kdic are close to my heart.
  10:21am ken:

i wonder if kdic streams? probably dial-up.
  10:21am bryan:

i just saw bobby bradford this weekend in philadelphia - performing with frode gjerstad's circulasione totale orchestra. it was an incredible performance. but i spied more than a dozen folks that looked more on the bradford end of the spectrum leaving after the first song.
  10:22am Paul Sherratt:

' It Sure Can Get Cold In Des Moines ' according to Tom T Hall
  10:25am Hugo:

Who are the vocalists on this SME piece? Julie Tippetts? Maggie Nichols?
  10:27am annie:

  10:28am Drummer Some:

Just Tippetts. And did you see the choice of tune? That was intentional.
  10:29am ken:

thanks annie. btw -- chambers solo on this sounds a lot like the one i love so much on 58 live recording with miles at newport. he could swwwing on that bass, for sure.
  10:30am Nat:

Yeah, they're 21st century now...tore down the old vaulted gymnasium that used to house the studio and now its in the newly built, boring student center. Still I have faith...on right now: "European Power Metal and Ambient American Rock."
  10:32am ken:

darby gym. i watched as 'sting' (yes, that sting) struggled to figure out a walking bass pattern during the sound check in that gym when the police played backup for an ultravox concert at grinnell. how they've fallen since then!
  10:33am annie:

pretty diverse dj style goin on there at kdic. cecile you might want to check that out
  10:33am Cecile:

"Splitting the difference between Blind Guardian and Tortoise!"
  10:36am Hugo:

Doug, I thought it might be ...
  10:42am Cecile:

annie, I will.
  10:42am Nat:

!!! God, that's great. All the Darby stories I've heard revolved around Springsteen's show there in 76 (?). Apparently, it was the same week he was on the covers of both Newsweek and Time. I was of the Guided by Voices/Yo La Tengo era of Grinnell shows. To bring things full circle: I talked with Ira Kaplan about wfmu. Of course.
  10:45am ken:

missed bruce, but you are right. sorry i miss yo la...we got gil scott heron, joan armatrading, buddy guy and junior wells, got knows who else. georgia dental -- the booker -- was a legend indeed. rahsahn roland kirk. james cotton.
  10:50am Carmichael:

Good morning Doug and all youse chatterboxes.
  10:55am annie:

cecile, i emailed you a link to the schedule.. carm- good morning!
  10:55am Drummer Some:

Welcome aboard, Carm. Now scamper up to the crow's nest and watch for that freakin whale.
  10:56am ?:

just tuning in in 128K stream. . . this Toncho is rockin' and sounds great! Is this from the Motherlode?
  10:59am ken:

and this 'chepito' cooks. was he still with santana? oy como va!
  11:03am Drummer Some:

@Question Mark:
No, that Toncho Pilatos has never been including in the Motherlode posts. I believe it got reissued not long ago.
  11:10am Drummer Some:

I believe so. Chepito was with Santana off and on until 1980.
  11:13am dc pat:

I know I have this Kouyate album...
  11:15am annie:

have to cut out early today, pholkes!! see ya.. sorry to miss the rest, doug.. y'all have a great weekend!
  11:18am dc pat:

later annie
  11:18am Cecile:

have a great weekend, annie!
  11:21am Carmichael:

Annie, grab that weekend by the horns and SHAKE!
  11:23am Harvey:

Haven't been able to listen to FMU in a while... What a great show to come back to!
  11:28am Paul Sherratt:

Poor Charley Akaa ... the DJ is now showing off !
  11:30am Drummer Some:

Welcome home, Harv. Don't be a stranger!
  11:33am Nat:

That's an outstanding line up. Looking back, we lost many an opportunity to the scourge/siren call of "Emo." Sigh. Still, RIP Darby Gym.
  11:34am Harvey:

haha thanks Doug!
  11:37am nna:

Doug, you are a stone angel, baby
  11:37am ken:

the shoegazer will note be televised
  11:44am Drummer Some:

Stoned, I think you mean.
  11:48am Parq:

Doug, I just hope that NNA did not mean stone angel in the "Dr Who 'Blink' episode" sense.
  11:54am Art Smass:

Whoremonger is one of those great old professions-turned-surnames like Smith, Cooper, Miller, and so on.
  11:55am Drummer Some:

@Art Smass
You should see the record cover!
  11:59am Cecile:

@art, yes, like my neighbors the Pillagers, and the Shitsweepers.
  12:03pm Mark III:
  12:40pm Tarnisher:

When I heard Poor Charley Akaa I come on, I knew that once again WFMU was about to launch me through a hole in the space time continuum into a heretofore unimagined musical landscape. I'm now listening to Naija Sounds In Country & Western Music, and I'm loving every note! Thank you Doug, thank you Comb & Razor!
