Familiar & forgotten gems from 50-plus years of music on the darker side, shoegaze, synthpop, goth, psychedelia, darkwave, with unapologetic detours into 70s pop. In a dark night of the soul, it's always 3 o'clock in the morning.

Listener comments!

  3:03am ausmanx:

evening, Miss Julie... got the big guns out tonight, I see...
  3:03am fred:

Good morning Julie
  3:08am Howard in Portland:

Always so good (and surprising!) to hear Kristeen Young on the radio! And I loved that Austra track, they are new to me! xxxooo
  3:08am Julie:

hi there Aus, Fred, Howard!
  3:11am s:

i love this sound!!!
  3:13am Julie:

Hi there s! Yes love the harpsichord
  3:21am Howard in Portland:

  3:22am Julie:

Are there any bad CT songs on those first couple albums, really?
  3:27am Howard in Portland:

Absolutely not... Love CRANES, too. Love your show, Julie! :)
  3:28am Julie:

Thank you Howard!
  3:31am Howard in Portland:

I really hope to someday have something of value to add, rather than just (well deserved) fawning and praise. But until then, thank you for playing what you play, Julie. xo
  3:35am dan:

Liked that German track, amongst others.
  3:35am fred:

Hey Howard, I'm sure praise has value, especially at this hour
  3:35am Julie:

Howard, cheering is plenty valued, at least by me!
  3:35am Julie:

Hi dan! Yep Fred is right.. nice to know I'm not only not alone but enjoyed!
  3:37am Howard in Portland:

I like to let people know when they do something that I really like. Too many have stopped before I get around to telling them... I've been listening to WFMU for a loooong time, and this show is now a favorite. I'm just gonna shut up and listen now!
  3:37am Enid Coleslaw:

Hi Julie, really liking the Orange track...ah, the '90s!
  3:38am ausmanx:

i thought it would be guns tonight, but with lilies, grass, garlands, potato salad and oranges, it seems we have a vegetation theme of some sort...
  3:40am Julie:

Hi @Enid! @Aus no gun theme, that's just a reference to my Xmas in texas
  3:46am ausmanx:

and now Night Time Flowers, and Syd is of course the Vegetable Man... it's all seamless! incidentally, Julie, as I'm sure you'll get onto my [dual] compatriots the Brothers Gibb at some point, there's a new biography of them by a PROPER music writer due next year, which should be very interesting...
  4:05am fred:

The memories... I had some fun playing that PiL record at parties in my high school days. Crap antidote: that would weird people out and they'd agree to shelve the worst top-10 offenders
  4:07am Julie:

It freaked me out when I first heard it. there was nothing like it.
  4:08am fred:

OK, this set has me firmly hooked already, and I was about to leave... as usual
She's probably the most insane performer I ever saw, in a good way, I guess
  4:11am Julie:

she really reminded me of Bjork on that one
  4:12am dan:

Quite Bjorky yep.
  4:13am fred:

I never saw Bjork, probably never will. I'd love to, but she's way out of my price range
  4:15am Dirty Elvis:

Guten Morgen Julie...nice to be listening again ;-)
  4:16am fred:

My personal best as an occasional crazy guest DJ: getting a bunch of people I didn't know go wild to Steve Reich's drumming. Bonus point: the look on the DJ's face when I told him he'd find that record in the "classical" section
  4:17am Julie:

Good morning, Dirty E
  4:22am fred:

So how is Emilie Simon's new record?
  4:24am Julie:

@Fred good. I've played a couple off of it, but it's not out here yet :(
  4:26am dan:

Kate: one of the best voices ever
  4:28am Dirty Elvis:

lovely...just lovely I say
  4:45am dan:

Everybody sing!
  4:46am Julie:

I know I was
  4:47am dan:

I'll have a strum too.
  4:48am Dave B:

WYWH was a nice way to wake, and the perfect coda to my dreams. Morning Julie and listeners!
  4:49am Julie:

@Dave good morning!
  4:52am fred:

Good morning Dave
  5:01am Dave B:

Hey Fred! Curious what Reich you used?

I need coffee!
  5:04am fred:

@Dave: drumming, part 1. The early pulse drew them in, so they tried to follow as more beats came in.
  5:05am dan:

@Julie Oops, I totally forgot the curse, 'Without You I'm Nothing' is the album.
  5:07am fred:

Mic break! My only chance, I'm outta here. Thanks Julie!
  5:16am Julie:

@Dan yeah it figures I'd play it past the safe harbor mark!
  5:19am dan:

I just like that one album from them and that song always makes me weepy.
  5:26am ausmanx:

surprised, after xmas, no one is talking about food... maybe it's the time of day for you guys. me, i'm finishing off the mince pies as the evening drags on at work...
  5:46am dan:

Guten Abend Frau Julie, Besten Dank fir die muzak!
  5:47am Julie:

Thanks Dan!
  5:52am Julie:

Thanks for listening guys! See you next week! Have a happy new year :)
  5:55am Dirty Elvis:

Bye Julie! Happy New Year ;-)
  5:57am Dirty Elvis:

Sweet bloom of night time flowers....
  6:36am Bill:

Your comments about texas trip were quite moving, especially on day I turned a year older. Now I see what they mean when they say life is too short.
  12:11pm Marmalade Kitty:

Hi Julie!! I'm tuning in late for the show :) Hope you're having a great holiday! I had such a long day yesterday (boxing day) radio was on listening to your show, but I was the vegetable man in bed!
Great show!
  9:35am Van in Dallas:

I'm late again. But this will surely help my workday Wednesday. Let's unwrap this final gift of 2011! :)
  11:11am Van in Dallas:

And suddenly, Kate Bush in my speakers...always a pleasure. Wonderful show so far, many thanks Julie.
  7:50pm Captain Sadness:

Nox Arcana features some harpsichord in their dark and moody tunes but not as prominent as Harpsicorpse.
  10:37am Van in Dallas:

Toyah! Er...I mean...The Humans! Nice :)
  11:07am Van in Dallas:

Great show to finish the year! Many thanks Julie!
