Listener comments!

  9:07am Ken From Hyde Park:

Good morning. What fine weather today. Glad the oil hasn't drifted up here yet and the Iceland volcano has its ash drifting to the east.
  9:11am Brian Sanders:

No talk of volcanoes, we are flying off to Istanbul on Monday.
  9:12am Cam:

Hey there. I'm from Perth, Western Australia. Just started listening to wfmu today, and I'm blown away by how amazing this station is. I've been tuning in out throughout the last four or five programs, and I've been impressed by all of them. Kudos to you all!
  9:15am Drummer Some:

Welcome aboard Cam! Grab a bucket and start bailing!
  9:17am Brian Sanders:

Cam, is Perth the most remote city in the world?
  9:19am Parq:

Cam, each of us has stories about when we first heard FMU. With the rise of its internet presence, those stories now go around the globe. Welcome to the fold. You ain't heard nothing yet.
  9:21am shimmo:

and in the radio wasteland that is Australia, WFMU is an especial pleasure. and i'm listening in sydney (perth is pretty remote even to us over here!)
  9:23am PMD:

Cam, don't forget the archives!
Parq, I honestly don't remember when/how I first heard WFMU. Schade.
Oh, congrats again Doug! And to your wife.
  9:24am Cam:

Drummer Some: I intend to!
Brian: It apparently is. Not sure officially.
Parq: I'm really looking forward to hearing as much of these programs as I can.
Shimmo: You know exactly where I'm coming from!
  9:25am Cam:

And PMD... I've seen those archives. I may never have to leave this room again with all that right there.
  9:27am Parq:

Yeh, Cam, that's the downside of being an FMU fan; it's an embarrassment of wealth. I never have enough time to listen to everything I want to, and that's not even counting all the blogs, on-line programming and digital music they link to.
  9:29am ∂avid:

Cam, make sure you stick around for Downtown Soulville tonight if you can. It gives Doug's show a run for the title of The Real Best Show on WFMU.
  9:30am coelacanth:

  9:31am Cam:

Parq, man, I don't even know where to start, hahaha
David, that's on around 7am here. I might still be sleeping, but we'll see!
  9:31am lewis Gilbert:

Doug - I forgot to add yesterday that, in addition to the stream, you should follow in Charlie's footprints and do a show in Pittsburgh. I am sure that there is a community radio station there that would love to have you!
  9:32am LizGig:

The world would be much poorer without Give the Drummer Some. I'm sorry you won't be on air, Doug, but I'm glad the internet is there for us.
  9:32am Pat:

Whoa, Doug, I was freaking there for a minute. Pittsburgh's not a bad town, hope your family likes it.
  9:33am Cecile:

This is huge for you, Doug.
I wish you well.
Pittsburgh will be 2000% improved by your presence.
  9:34am harvey in austria:

best darn radio programm on the face of this earth!! Doug! Best wishes to you and your family in Pittsburgh! I'll stay updated on how this developes with podcasts and all
  9:34am Robert:

How will your move affect your occasional series, "Give the Daughter Some"?
  9:34am Ken From Hyde Park:

I've enjoyed your show since I first found it. Good luck with your new projects.
  9:35am EzSez:

Great record stores of Pittsburgh: Stedefords and Jerry's
  9:35am Bruce in Boston:

Doug- my buddies moved to P-burgh from Cambridge. They love it! Looking forward to your new adventures.....
  9:36am still b/p:

It is customary, Cam, for the newest person in the listening/commenting pool to provide the doughnuts, or the outback equivalent. (g'donuts?)

Now...what flavor of dougnuts are customary for a moment of fearful, mournful shock followed by blessed relief? Thanks for staying in one form/stream or another, Doug.
  9:36am jk:

I'll miss our friday mornings. good luck in pittsburgh Doug, eat some fries on a sandwich when you get there
  9:36am Cecile:

I hope you are not a vegan or strict vegetarian. Pittsburgh is a hard town for vegetarians.

And if you love team sports, it is just amazing when it's playoff time. Great fans.
  9:37am Cecile:

that's right, jk!
Or on a salad...

And Oran's Donuts in the town of Beaver Falls makes the best donuts ever.
  9:38am Cam:

still b/p, I wish I had some doughnuts. Believe me, I do. I'd share some if I had some, but alas I have none. Apologies!
  9:38am Cecile:

still b/p - I think donuts with a cranberry glaze - a bittersweet fruit if there was one.
  9:39am Drummer Some:

With its preponderance of meat and medical centers, I hear Pittsburgh every year wins the Best City to Have a Myocardial Infarction!
  9:40am Cecile:

This is true.
  9:40am shimmo:

we must give thanks for what we have had from doug so far, and not be sad. cam will provide us with lamingtons if there are no doughnuts in perth. although that might need some explaining...
  9:41am Cecile:

Doug, I'd talk to Scott Williams, he visits there a lot.
I don't get into the city much when I'm in PA, but I love the National Aviary, and I hope to get to the museums someday, as well as some of the record stores...
  9:42am Cam:

There are doughnuts in Perth, I just don't have any on me... and our trading hours are messed up so I can't even go and buy some until tomorrow morning.
  9:43am Bruce in Boston:

Yes Doug,meat and meds but at least you can find a parking space. And of course you know P-burgh is the home of Billy Staryhorn...
  9:44am coelacanth:

Doug i wish well to's quite uncharicteristic for me to email, or to get on a list...i look at my email every few weeks-at very most...but i WILL do it. 'been with you since you've been on,& it's been a pleasure.
  9:45am Cecile:

And there is a vocal group museum in Sharon, PA that looked amazing, but I never got to go in.

I sense a theme here...
  9:45am listener gary:

I am so sorry to hear that you are leaving this time slot. I am even sorrier to hear that you are going to Pittsb. WC Fields once said that he spent a month in Philadelphia one Sunday. You can spend a month in Pittsburg just passing through on a bus!!! I rarely give advice but I am compelled: Don't do it!!! Best...
  9:47am barrianne:

bom dia. good morning
  9:48am still b/p:

My sister moved to Pittsburgh recently, in time for the welcoming freak-depth snow wallops...after coming from -- hah! --Pasadena!

I would walk barefoot & unsunscreened from here to Perth for a cranberry glazed doughnut.

Excellent music today, again.
  9:49am Lore:

I better start camping out now in anticipation of the stoop sale of the century. I mean, I assume that Exotic Prince record is far too cumbersome to move.
  9:50am seang:

Pittsburgh is Cool!
  9:51am Drummer Some:

Thanks for all the well wishes and good advice (Listener Gary notwithstanding!) I am on a bus that ain't turning around. I refuse to say I will miss you, because VIRTUALLY I am not going anywhere (or, one might say... everywhere)
  9:52am Listener James from Westwood:

Many congratulations on the job opportunity! It's been a deep joy to share these many Fridays with you. Very much looking forward to whatever form Drummer 2.0 takes in the future (an Ichiban-style stream would be heavenly!).
  9:53am Drummer Some:

Hey Lore, I already gave the album away to everyone on WFMU's blog. See here (or hear):
  9:55am Bad Ronald:

Got it, thanks Doug and good luck!!!
  9:59am barrianne:

I had a class with Hobsbawm at the New School. He was one hep Brit cat!
  10:02am seang:

NYC is just a yuppie metropolis now. UGH! We need more Cookie Muellers
  10:02am coelacanth:

Killa Milla...."sayn'"
  10:03am Bob:

It's not an urban legend about Kennedy's famous quote. If you're a native of Berlin, you say "Ich bin Berliner." "Ein Berliner" refers to a doughnut very similar to Dunkin Donuts cream-filled donut.

The English equivalent would be the difference between saying "I am Danish" and "I am a Danish."
  10:04am dc pat:

ok, just getting in and am gathering Drummer Some is moving to PGH?! I think it's probably a great place to be right now. More groups I like go through there than DC...
  10:06am scottm:

DOUG! My WFMU musical spirit guide off for greener pastures! Good luck! I love Pittsburgh. solid town, fun. Pirates bleacher seats are $9 and it's beautiful sitting up there on a sunny day.
  10:07am dc pat:

do you know what neighborhood you're moving to yet?
  10:08am Mark from C-Bus:

Your travels will be my boon ... more great music! Give Jerry my regards.
  10:09am dc pat:

I have one word for you Doug: Bloomfield Bridge Tavern
  10:13am Drummer Some:

dc pat, we're headed to Squirrel Hill. In the next neighborhood over, Regent Square, there is an excellent food coop. When me and the fam were in Pittsburgh in early April, we went over to the coop and the first person we see coming out is wearing a WFMU t-shirt. I practically broke down crying.
  10:16am Bruce in Boston:

Great Reggae set, wasn't this also cut by a woman singer? Uptown something?
  10:17am dc pat:

SQUIRREL HILL!! Excellent spot. I always wanted to live there. (Just read the Newsletter...I'm up to speed now)
  10:17am Cecile:

It was a sign, Doug!
  10:23am barrianne:

Star Trek: Deepwater Horizon
  10:25am Bruce in Boston:

OK Uptown Ranking was a "reply" to Three Piece Suit, thank you internet....
  10:26am Kenzo:

Doug, keep doing the cool playlists from your new web stream!
  10:27am Drummer Some:

Are you "The Kenzo" Kenzo as in databasemeister Kenzo? If so, we gotta talk.
  10:29am PMD:

Red River Dave is making me really depressed.
  10:30am Boston Roy:

Make sure to read August Wilson's complete works while walking around his old stomping grounds! Best of luck!
  10:31am Robert:

A berliner -- and that's its English name too -- is the type of danish that's a spiral around an open "eye" of fruit filling.

My family is from the Pittsburgh area. Father from McKeesport (Goodman's jewelry was Uncle Sam's), Mother from Brownsville (up the Youghegenny from there). It's an area of Croatian settlement (accounting for Mother's side), and the Croatian Fraternal Union is in Monroeville. Uncle Eddie lived in Squirrel Hill. The water's pretty awful, the air was rapidly improving but still left a lot to desire last I was there, but it's a nice place otherwise. Of course it all depends on the people you deal with there, as everywhere.
  10:34am Robert:

I forgot to ask what kind of work you do or your wife does (whichever of you brought on the move).
  10:36am Parq:

@ DC Pat, 10:09 -- that's three words! @ Bad Ron, dug hearing you on the air last night.
  10:36am Robert:

At least he didn't call himself a hamburger or a frankfurter.
  10:37am LizGig:

This afternoon I was listening to local radio (lots of late 80s chart hits for some reason) and I suddenly said, isn't it time for Give the Drummer Some? I'm saved! And soon, no matter what time of the day, I will be able to be saved by the drummer! Ok, I know I can always click into the archives, but it's not the same when you're listening to a programme you've already heard.
  10:37am LizGig:

Doug, what about a t-shirt that says Saved by the Drummer ?
  10:41am BBT intox test:

Here...look a' me. Howm'ny words 'm I holdin' up..?
  10:45am GD:

Is the webstream going to be put on the Droid App for WFMU?
  10:46am Kenzo:

DrummerSome Doug: Yes, it's KenzoDB Kenzo. Let's talk! (I forecast continuing playlists from you like nothing ever changed!)
  10:47am Drummer Some:

The answer is YES. This new stream will be very similar to the fine Rock 'n' Soul Ichiban stream/blog. The one difference is that I will be doing Give the Drummer Some LIVE on this stream. When I am not on the air, the stream will run a continuous rotation of amazing music that I will be curating.
  10:47am Brent:

Whew- - i'm coming out of anonymity with a busload of thanks. writing from Chengdu China. Bandwidth issues have kept my speakers slient on Fridays (nights now) for many months and I got worried there for a few minutes with the talk of moving on...but the last set break cleared things up - it is so nice to know that you will still be only a couple of clicks away!
cheers -
  10:49am Bad Ronald:

Oh no Parq, dunno what I was thinkin...
  10:56am Drummer Some:

Wow Brent! Nice to hear from you. How did you know I had a set of (old school) Chinese music coming up? Next.
  10:58am Drummer Some:

By the way, dear listeners, I am open to any and all suggestions for this new web stream. Please DON'T HESITATE to email with your thoughts, suggestions and, of course, comments.
  11:04am brent:

I am 12 hours ahead right now! how appropriate for this friday night.
per chance, old jazz from Shanghai? anything from a female singer named Ge Lan on the list - pathe? wo yao ni de ai
  11:13am LizGig:

Saved by the Drummer t-shirts with the URL on it.
  11:13am Cecile:

I never knew Kirk Lightsey played with Chet Baker. I did certainly enjoy his solo LPs in the 80s.
  11:14am PMD:

Poor brent has his work cut out for him!
  11:17am Drummer Some:

That surprised me, too! Lightsey must've been awfully young to be recording in '65. I remember being personally introduced to him back in the early '80s and he looked young then.
  11:21am Cecile:

Music, the fountain of youth?
  11:21am Drummer Some:

Sorry Brent, just older traditional music today. I DO have some of that wonderful Shanghai cabaret jazz material, but none with me.
  11:23am brent:

Every friday is full of such challenges for our DJ - happy to say that you were absolutely in the right universe. Without the characters, can't know the tones for sure, but it sounded great. - I'm positive that folks here would say that "you speak chinese very well!"
  11:23am Cecile:

he was about 28. It is true! "Black don't crack!"
  11:24am Cecile:

and, wow. He didn't start putting out his own solo music until the early 80s. That gives me some hope for my golden years...
  11:33am john:

this song is...totally bad ass.
  11:33am david herskovits:

always great to hear you doug--i love this stuff!
  11:36am brent:

I agree with john. strange, so strange, that i can have tea tonight and be listening to this great music. beautiful playing and beautiful titles!

Doug - Zh gets roughly a J sound and Xi +- shee
  11:36am LizGig:

Doug, will the archive of your radio broadcast programmes still be available?
  11:39am Parq:

This lovely, peaceful music is in sharp contrast to the stomach-churning pile of new work waiting for me to pick it up this morning. Oh well, it's what they pay me for.
  11:40am brent:

Li +- Lee
Shicheng +- C'chung
  11:40am dc pat:

ah, so your stream will be available on the iPhone app probably then. (just catching up again)
  11:45am Cecile:

Billy Wright - is that from that record where he's wearing braces on the cover?
  11:46am Drummer Some:

LizGig: Absolutely. I hope the new shows that I'll be doing will also be archived. I don't know about that yet.

David H: Always great to hear from (and see!) you.

John: Baddd ass is more like it

Brent: Sorry, I didn't see you kind assistance until it was too late....
  11:54am Brian Sanders:

It's hard to believe that it's 50 years since Eddie Cochran died on the A4 in the UK.
  12:00pm Bob:

Good luck to your and family in Pittsburgh! We'll all keep listening every Friday morning.
  12:02pm slugluv1313:

oh goodness! got freaked out there for a moment, SO GLAD that you will *not* be leaving us!!!
  12:04pm slugluv1313:

a great big WFMU WELCOME to you, Cam!!!
