Listener comments!

  3:03pm pierre:

Bonjour Scott !
How's everything ?
  3:05pm Carmichael:

Wow! Another riveting Jim Price show. How're you gonna top that one, Scott? You could try for, ohhh, 3 hours and you'd never stand a chance. But I'll listen anyway.
  3:06pm 12539:

Just don't call him Scotty.
  3:07pm Van in DC:

@Carmichael - you mean 2 hrs 59 minutes? :) Hi Scott.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm Scott W:

Afternoon gents! Yeah, Jimmyboy crossed a line there; things are different with us now
  3:12pm Andrew Waterloo:

woo hoo PFC!
  3:13pm Danne D:

Best Phil Collins song ever.
  3:14pm Carmichael:

Greatest Hits albums are for wussies.
  3:14pm Cheri Pi:

This is the only way to listen to Phil Collins, all at once.
  3:15pm Van in DC:

This would be so awesome with more cowbell
  3:15pm 12539:

Awesome drumming on this track.
  3:16pm Carmichael:

Greatest Hits songs, now that's where it's at.
  3:17pm KevinC BK:

this P F C is a little intense
I have to say he is one of my least favorite musicians ever
  3:17pm Carmichael:

Hey man, I'm not hearing Su Su Sudio. I feel cheated.
  3:17pm Nathan:

Noriega definitely would've surrendered by now.
  3:17pm Droll:

What took Phil decades to create takes only a few moments to destroy. About time.
  3:18pm KevinC BK:

I kind of want to torture a friend with this, what is this from?
  3:18pm Cheri Pi:

I want my ex to have a copy of PFC
  3:19pm Danne D:

@Carmichael funny you should mention Sussudio as that's the one song I COULD pick up :)
  3:19pm Looms:

I think I'm gonna need an aspirin pill soon.
  3:19pm Cheri Pi:

Yargh! I hate the Beatles!
  3:20pm Danne D:

*wonders if this available from ye olde prize warehouse*
  3:20pm KevinC BK:

I'm starting to enjoy this
  3:20pm Van in DC:

Man. I guess Jimmyboy really put Scott in a mood :)
  3:21pm Cliff:

In the future, all music will sound like this.
  3:21pm Carmichael:

He'll probably destroy Mozart next.
  3:22pm Michiel:

So you guys are done with the fundraiser?
  3:22pm still b/p:

Magical List-ery Tour.
  3:22pm Cheri Pi:

I need an aspirin pill too.
  3:22pm Nathan:

How can one hate the Beatles? I mean they're not my favourite - I'm more of a Kinks man - but... to hate them is pretty strong. Surely there is some quality that one could appreciate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Scott W:

how 'bout Mussourgsky?
  3:23pm Danne D:

The only funnier thing about the PFC is that Turner already has played :D
  3:23pm Carmichael:

Pictures at a fucking exhibition.
  3:23pm Danne D:

Mussourgsky did Firebird Suite right?
  3:24pm KevinC BK:

I have too much coffee in my system to listen to any more of this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Scott W:

nope Danne, that was Stravinsky
  3:24pm pierre:

don't be Modest Scott !

@ Danne D : i believe it's Stravinski
  3:24pm alex:

firebird is stravinsky
  3:25pm Danne D:

I'm trying to imagine the "Yes" version of this concept btw - "Rhythm of Love" simultaneously with "The Revealing Science of God"
  3:26pm Danne D:

@pierre you are right

3 Bridges = Mussourgsky? right? Or Pictures at an Exhibition?

LOL I know there's a prog rock cover of Mussourgsky by somebody. Where's Vance when you need him?
  3:26pm pierre:

3 Starvinsky in a row !!!

"A Night On Bald Mountain" interpreted by Disney in Fantasia, is one of my personal most memorable souvenirs in cinema.
  3:27pm Danne D:

98% of my classical music knowledge comes from either cartoons or prog rock.
  3:27pm Carmichael:

@Danne: it's by ELP. Mostly E.
  3:28pm Danne D:

Crap and the Nice album is Five Bridges.
  3:28pm Droll:

@Danne D, Even a limited Yes pileup, say all four sides of Tales of Topographical Oceans at once, is probably enough note density to permanently damage all the listeners' speakers. An ELP pileup would overload the transmitter for sure.
  3:28pm Cheri Pi:

It's absolute, pure hate. time tested.
  3:28pm pierre:

@ Danne D : waht about movies ? (ex: a clockwork orange, or most Kubrick movies)
  3:29pm Danne D:

@carmichael - well most ELP is by one of the 3 of them.

Works being the classic example - 3 solo sides plus Pirates
  3:29pm joe:

'ello folks
So much aggro :)
  3:29pm Carmichael:

Oh, this reminds me: what was Jim Price talking about "schmuckas" (sic)? I'm Yiddish-challenged.
  3:30pm Danne D:

@pierre - ooh, perhaps all the songs on the "Over The Top" soundtrack at the same time ;)
  3:30pm still b/p:

It was like Terminator sfx behind Betty and now takin' a solo.
  3:30pm Danne D:

Schmuckers like the jelly?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Scott W:

hmmm, all 4 sides of tales of topographic oceans... hmmm...
  3:33pm Carmichael:

How about all 6 Dokaka CDs from the collection at once? No, wait. That may rip a hole in the fabric of time.
  3:34pm Danne D:

@Scott W? right? :)
  3:36pm Danne D:

Alternately for one with more familarity to it you could do all 3 sides of Yessongs (the live one).

Side opinion - they sound way better on that live album than on the studio originals - probably since they don't painfully craft each individual note in a lab. And rare is it that I prefer live versions on anything.
  3:36pm Danne D:

(exception being when done by Hoof N Mouth Sinfonia)
  3:37pm Bridie:

La brea ata ann!
  3:37pm still b/p:

..or the Dokaka layering might accumulate sonically and unexpectedly to become a gentle rendition of "Edelweiss."
  3:38pm Cecile:

I have learned to like and respect the Beatles again. But if Cheri grew up with the same radio I did, she heard no deep cuts. Just the most schlocky hits over and over again.
  3:39pm pierre:

does "Bambola" means Cabinet ?
  3:40pm Cecile:

But I can't listen to Magical Mystery Tour. I cleaned out chicken fryers to it at 3 a.m. as a teen. I hear Fool on the Hill and I smell burning fat.
  3:40pm Carmichael:

Is this the hammered dulcimer or steel drums? Strange sound.
  3:41pm c2677:

I LOVE THIS SONG. Scott, you (i think) played it like 8 years ago on your valentines day show, in like 2004. I burned a bunch of song from that show onto a CD and listend to it still to this day...
  3:42pm Brian en Angleterre:

There's only one thing worse than being talked about and that's not being talked about.
  3:43pm Cecile:

sounds like Python's parody of Oscar Wilde.
  3:43pm Danne D:

@c2677 perhaps this show?
  3:43pm jk:

don't tell anyone but I just took a little nap on my office floor during the Betty Walker bit. I dreamt I was on a boat on a lake.
  3:43pm Brian en Angleterre:

Carmichael is a hammered dulcimer one that has had too much imbibing?
  3:44pm Brian en Angleterre:

You got it Cecile.
  3:44pm If it's Washington Phillips:

Then it's a homemade zither-sounding thing made of two celestaphones . . .http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolceola
  3:44pm Danne D:

(only other time scott played it according to archive search)
  3:45pm Danne D:

Love Stinks = Drum Milk

Drum riff is from "In the Air Tonight"
  3:46pm Danne D:

Crap i mean Centerfold for J Geils ugh
  3:46pm Danne D:

Jeez, Daylight Savings Time has totally ruined me :(
  3:47pm Danne D:

How can I forget that video? Fail on my part. Enter senility already
  3:47pm Cheri Pi:

Yes-Cecile. Plus-I don't want to like the Beatles, I've moved on...
  3:48pm Cecile:

Revolver and Rubber Soul are pretty amazing
  3:53pm Cheri Pi:

Mr.CP like Rubber Soul. except for his love of Rush he has excellent taste in music ;)
  3:53pm BSI:

[bursts into the room gasping for breath after a spastic false-alarm office fire drill] ..... GAK.....
  3:54pm still b/p:

I have a taste for some Beatles, but years ago, I was watching experimental films of color patches and squiggles, and the soundtrack was early Beatles. I got quite annoyed by the lyrics that were so, so insipid. And it was definitely the lyrics that grated, not the visuals, though the combination somehow underscored the awfulness.
  3:55pm Marmalade kitty:

please please me is pretty good! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Scott W:

i find it kinda impossible to even have an opinion abt beatles. it's like being mad at acorns.
  3:56pm BSI:

well put, captain.
  3:56pm ?:

Fabio played some of this Early Astral last Thursday. I liked it then, and I like it even more now.
  3:56pm Carmichael:

Now the Rutles, I adore them. Ouch was as good a movie as a soundtrack.
  3:57pm ?:

fucking acorns
  3:57pm c2677:

@danne I have to go back to the MP3 and see what the show number was... it was somewhere around 2004/2005.
  3:57pm pierre:

I Like the Beatles the band, and all the stories that goes with them (like most bands). Some songs I do not enjoy much though.
  3:58pm Cecile:

I loved the Rutles. I actually watched All You Need Is Cash on NBC in 1978 when it was the lowest rated program of the week. :(
  4:00pm joe:

Oh Scott please no the Tales. I just have no tolerance for Yes. NONE!
  4:01pm pierre:

Is there other acorns_like bands?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Scott W:

that Neil Innes is some kinda genius! Urban Spaceman & Rockaliser Baby are better beatle pastiche tho than any rutles stuff. want better beatles?
  4:01pm joe:

@Cecile so how that seems totally appropriate.
  4:02pm joe:

Wow my typing is so off
  4:02pm Carmichael:

Urban Spaceman was produced by Apollo C. Vermouth, who has since been knighted and goes by the name McCartney.
  4:02pm Marmalade kitty:

there are songs on please please me that make me cry, in a good way.. For sale is underrated I think, in terms of beatle anthology
  4:04pm Brian en Angleterre:

Beautiful Zelda from Galaxy 4........
  4:04pm Carmichael:

I've been trying to get Amanda to play Rockaliser Baby, as she's a huge Bonzo fan. But she's worried about mixing it into a set, due to it's oddness.
  4:04pm Mike East:

when I was a kid I borrowed my sister's credit card to mail order "The Rutles" movie. She's a good sister.
  4:04pm fred:

Wow I love this Chris Forsyth & Koen Holtkamp track. I really want to see them live now
  4:05pm Brian en Angleterre:

Carmichael I think Amanda is a small to medium
  4:05pm Brian en Angleterre:

More Goons
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Scott W:

yeah, I'm down with For sale, really sad
  4:06pm Danne D:

@Scott W - if you've had a squirrel throw acorns at you, you'd have a definite opinion about them.
  4:07pm Cecile:

Carm, just put some Move or Roy Wood near Rockaliser. Problem solved.
  4:07pm Brian en Angleterre:

What's got a hazelnut in every bite?
  4:08pm joe:

Digging on the Opal....Helping with the fact that I've forgotten to take my meds for the last two days LOL
  4:08pm so...:

Stony the Squirrel..
Had acorns to hur-l..
Only to find Danne D's noggin...
  4:08pm pierre:

@fred: if you see any gig happening w/forsyth, please let me know, as I felt the same kind of enjoyment.
  4:08pm Cecile:

ruh-roh, Joe!
  4:09pm KP:

Bonjour pierre, scott, mk.
  4:11pm fred:

@pierre: I will, and I hope you'll do the same if you see it first.
  4:11pm KP:

Are we going to hear "Cheese and Onions"? Do I have to spell it out?
  4:12pm Carmichael:

Good choice, Cecile. Maybe the Fire Brigade or Flowers in the Rain.
  4:12pm joe:

How about some Tape Beatles
  4:12pm Andrew Waterloo:

Love this Frankie Rose album. Kept mistaking it for Asobie Seksu
  4:12pm Cecile:

Get up and go back home!
  4:12pm pierre:

@fred: ladies and gentlemen, that's a deal.
  4:13pm joe:

God how I love the song Fire Brigade.
  4:13pm Cecile:

Carm, or even Chinatown or I can hear the Grass Grow.
  4:13pm Carmichael:

Oh Scott, you were being literal about "better beatles".
  4:13pm Looms:

I second Joe on the Tape Beatles request.
  4:15pm Carmichael:

I'd like to own a squadron of tanks.
  4:15pm BSI:

Huge Bonzo fan. I wanted to love the Rutles, but I ended up just "really liking" it..... but Cheese & Onions is an immortal classic.
  4:15pm Danne D:


when later reached for comment, the squirrel said he was just "busting beans"
  4:16pm fred:

@pierre: are you getting a pass for Sonic Protest? I did, Thierry too, and Lucas said he would.
  4:16pm Mark T in VT:

I am actually not listening right now but wanted to check in. It is incredibly warm right now where I am and I am enjoying the sounds of an early Spring with all the windows and doors open. But normally I would have Scott W on the speakers this time of day.

The sounds of motorcycles, people talking going by in cars with windows down, birds, people in general animated and not just head down going from a to b as quickly as possible. Spring!
  4:18pm Carmichael:

BSI, if you like that, listen to Tony Hendra's Genius is Pain on the national lampoon album Radio Dinner.
  4:18pm pierre:

@fred: I don't think I'll have the time to go to the gigs, I'll try to come to some.
  4:18pm KP:

I'm glad BSI then that I don't have to spell it out.
  4:19pm Carmichael:

@KP: You better think twice, at least once more.
  4:21pm Jeff:

No regrets!
  4:22pm BSI:

................very stunned.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Scott W:

hey, it's not bad on headphones!
  4:22pm Hugh:

I was listening to Chris Squire's solo rekkid this morning!
  4:22pm Danne D:

  4:23pm Droll:

Oh god, no... No.. NO! NOOOOOOOO!!!! YES(x4)!!! I never meant for this to happen.
  4:23pm Danne D:

It actually sounds pretty coherent I have to say :)
  4:23pm Cecile:

I would like it better if you were scratching and running it through Traktor.
  4:25pm fred:

@pierre: BTW, Thierry was pleased to meet you, don't be shy next time, he's a really cool guy
  4:25pm Caryn:

This is both way more bearable and way more comprehensible than I thought it would be...
  4:25pm KP:

Astrid and Sutcliffe had more influence on the beatles and the world than recognized. She brought the the unisex French beat haircut. She put beat - beatnik - in the Beatles. It was much more than music. That's what outraged the establishment and the thrilled those who knew there was something better.
  4:26pm Chris from DC:

Yeah, this kind of works.
  4:26pm Carmichael:

Their music is finally beginning to make sense ....
  4:26pm ?:

Wikipedia quotes Chris Squire saying of this album that, "it does go on a bit . . ."
  4:27pm Jeff:

Haha... Haters were prepared to hate, take a big step back and feel the yes!
  4:27pm Carmichael:

Now, if only Irwin would play all of Amanda's catalog at the same time.
  4:27pm Danne D:

LOL Jeff I'm not even a hater and I wasn't quite sure what we were in for. Tales From Quadrophonic Oceans is Awesome :)
  4:28pm ditdoc:

Has anyone ever done a karaoke version of The Revealing Science of God?
  4:28pm KP:

Vance is loving this.
  4:28pm Marshall Stacks:

It's like all four years of high school, all at once.
  4:29pm Danne D:

If Yes is Cocaine this is clearly Crack
  4:29pm joe:

Ok this yes I can take. LOL. the fact that I can barely make out Jon Anderson's voice makes it all the better.
  4:29pm Cecile:

It's cool until you can actually detect snippets of lyrics.
  4:30pm pierre:

This could also be used as a weapon.

@fred: I was very please to meet him as well. Next time I'll be less shy, but you know after drinking some beers :) ... Oh beers.
  4:30pm Droll:

Is it too late to ask for my marathon pledge back? Actually, Yesyesyesyes sounds surprisingly like plain old Yes.
  4:30pm BSI:

Funny. As much of a total prog-geek as I was in my teens, never really got around to Yes. ... thus, i don't know enough to hate. Ignorance is bliss?
  4:30pm Carmichael:

In and around the turntable.
  4:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

This is a good song to listen to with headphones.
  4:31pm Danne D:

@Droll - you ran with the idea I proffered. I think we both need to kick in a little more than what we pledged.
  4:31pm still b/p:

Aye aye aye aye
  4:31pm 12539:

Can I get this on 8-track tape?
  4:31pm joe:

It's pretty damn good on headphones.
  4:32pm Cecile:

come on, scott, let loose your inner Grandmaster Flash.
  4:32pm Danne D:

@BSI - I finally heard Uriah Heap the other day so it happens.
  4:32pm Carmichael:

@joe: the final note goes on for 2 minutes. You can hear the air conditioners in the mic.
  4:33pm joe:

@Cecile yeah it almost sounds Crimson like except for that horrible voice.
  4:33pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I think the next effort on this is to have two of the sides being played backwards.
  4:33pm Caryn:

Have been following all the Beatles/Rutles/Bonzo Dog talk and will just say: I love all 3 (have actually been rewatching "Do Not Adjust Your Set"). And while I don't love every Beatles track, they were great. And McCartney's work with Neil Innes and Harrison's work with the Pythons (and subsequently the Rutles) are also in a way a legacy of the Beatles, for which I am extremely grateful.
  4:33pm Jeff:

Total stoner av club daydream becomes a reality!
  4:34pm Danne D:

oddly enough I don't think I've ever listed to TFTO prior to this.
  4:34pm KP:

They did cover the byrds' I See you. Then something went horribly wrong.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Scott W:

yeah, there's some stuff here I'm enjoying. never the voice. now uriah heap, now you found my hate!
  4:35pm Carmichael:

Spot on, Caryn!
  4:35pm Ralphine:

Someone's been listening to Zaireeka.
  4:35pm Danne D:

or listened even
  4:35pm joe:

What about all four sides of Metal Machine music with LULU played backwards over it?
  4:35pm Mr. Lowry:

12539: "Can I get this on 8-track tape?"

This got me thinking. Who says this isn't the 8-track tape being played on an 8-track reel-to-reel?
  4:36pm Caryn:

Now let's do something stoner-y, like see if we can sync this up with "2001: A Space Odyssey"...
  4:36pm Danne D:

lol Joe - it seems like a new show format is coming together. Mashters of Disashter.
  4:36pm Brian en Angleterre:

Carmichael The Wondermints who support Brian Wilson had a track called 'In and Around Greg Lake'
KP I saw YES in '69 playing with Jon Hendricks would you believe. Jon Anderson scat singing.
  4:36pm Carmichael:

Or Wizard of Oz.
  4:37pm pierre:

Is there a band called "maybe" ? That could be played along with this?
  4:37pm Caryn:

@Carmichael: I thought of that, but "Dark Side of the Moon" owns that movie, so I say we go for the other stoner favourite with 2001.
  4:37pm doug:

wow, 4 sides at once of "Tales" who'ed ever think, that's why this is the greatest radio station ever
  4:38pm Brian en Angleterre:

I love how much you appreciate the English sense of humour. BUT without the BEatles there would be nothing to take the piss out of. Hello Caryn. JOBS?
  4:38pm Carmichael:

@Brian: for some reason, I saw Yes twice: in '76 and '01. Their setlists were different by 3 songs, one of them Owner of a Lonely Heart.
  4:38pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@pierre - "Please?"
  4:38pm Danne D:

@doug - that's the DJ taking a request, WFMU style
  4:39pm Carmichael:

@pierre: I was thinking of a tribute band called No, Not Yes.
  4:39pm doug:

I was like, it sounds like "Ritual" but a little different
  4:40pm Bas, NL:

I'm late! But.. what have i tuned in to?!
  4:40pm Caryn:

  4:40pm Carmichael:

Lots of reading to do, Bas!
  4:41pm Brian en Angleterre:

Carmichael once was enough.

Tales from Topographic Trousers.

  4:41pm pierre:

@Ken: oh yes ken, oh yes...
  4:41pm Danne D:

@carmichaell I've seen Yes - wow - now that I think about it, it's actually been 4 times if you could Anderson Bruford Wakeman and Howe. The set lists actually were very different.

"Big Generator" tour was the first one. Was kinda fun to observe the split it the crowd.

Not very proud to say I purchased this shirt:
  4:41pm Caryn:

@Brian: have had some one-off, couple of day things, but nothing long-term yet. A batch of opportunities should become available this or next week, so...
  4:42pm Danne D:

Thank you for that Scott - that's a great moment in radio history right there :)
  4:43pm Brian en Angleterre:

Caryn I really hope so. Fingers crossed.
  4:43pm Bas, NL:

This.. is.. novile.. I'll get used to it. Hi guys!
  4:43pm Carmichael:

This song is the perfect follow-up.
  4:44pm darue:

WFMU could have a show that just plays the Forbidden Zone soundtrack every week. I can't rave about how great that is enough! Thanks for the surprise :)
  4:44pm Caryn:

@Brian: thanks :)
  4:46pm Brian en Angleterre:

Can we have the original CYFTTW? Please
  4:47pm fred:

I remember someone WFMU related once did a show playing as many Jandek records as he could find. It was great.
  4:47pm darue:

how about some Kipper Kids :)
  4:47pm kat330:

Caryn: I said this last Friday at the end of DJKG's show, and now this is belated: Hyvaa Syntymapaivaa! (I remembered you mentioned events coinciding with the date)
  4:48pm Bas, NL:

(@Scott: Is that a fresh copy of the Pete King vinyl?)
  4:52pm Caryn:

@kat: thanks :) Turned 33 yesterday. Simultaneously got to tell my brother that his band was played on WFMU. He was stunned. And will hopefully become a WFMU convert as a result.
  4:53pm Danne D:

Happy Belated Birthday Caryn :)
  4:53pm kat330:

Just dropped in to see what I've been missing the past couple of working hours and saw your name. What's the brother's band's name (sorry if already noted)?
  4:56pm Andrew Waterloo:

Happy Birthday Caryn, I am on the cusp of 34 myself.
  4:57pm Dogs in the Neighborhood:

happy anniversary of your natal day, caryn and Andrew, you smart little kids you.
  4:57pm Andrew Waterloo:

Hmm.. something sounds very familiar about this Seven That Spells
  4:57pm Dogs in the Neighborhood:

You don't want to know how many dog years we are.
  4:58pm Brian en Angleterre:

Scott have you ever played 'A Walk in the Black Forest' by Horst Jankowski? Snappy piano instrumental. Hit over here around '65.

Belated greeting(s) Caryn. Is one enough? I dream of 50 let alone 33.
  4:58pm Cecile:

sounds like the riff i used to pound out on my Fisher-price xylophone back in the day.
  4:58pm Caryn:

@Danne, Andrew & dogs: thanks!

@kat: Well, it's actually his old band. They've broken up already and formed new bands. But they were Helvetin Käkikello. They were only played behind a DJ talking, but it still counts. I'm trying to encourage the few bands I know to submit their stuff for inclusion in the FMA, so maybe one day his new bands will be heard here.
  4:59pm Caryn:

@Brian: thanks again!
@Cecile: hah! Yeah, I think I've done this on the recorder.
  5:00pm BSI:

This tune scratches that itch I just couldn't reach....
  5:00pm Marmalade kitty:

@Caryn:4:33: well said!
In totally rocks.. ROCKS!!!
  5:02pm Right:

You know when you come up with a riff and all you want to do is play it repeatedly because it blows you away? Yeah.
  5:02pm kat330:

Okay, kiitos, Caryn. I'll check into it. Ta-ta for now! [Just in & out here]
  5:04pm Caryn:

Bye, kat! And thanks, kittycat!
  5:04pm fred:

@Caryn: Happy birthday, belatedly. I'm so ashamed I forgot. You share your birthday with my sister, she turned 30 yesterday. I knew that once, how embarrassing. Then again, I was so tired yesterday I'm happy I remembered my sister's birthday.
  5:08pm joe d:

wow you're really blowing my mind today Satan! Wait not Satan, I meant Scott.
  5:08pm Brian en Angleterre:

Gotta cut & run. Good job Scott as ever. Nice hat.
  5:09pm pierre:

Merci Caryn et joyeux anniversaire!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Scott W:

wfmu hasn't had a satan in awhile, has it? hi Joe!
  5:10pm Caryn:

@fred: Oh come on, nothing to be ashamed about. I'm just happy you remembered your sister's happy date! Man, she had a major birthday to celebrate (well, in the arbitrary system we've devised, at least)!
It's funny, in our family, we have 4 birthdays in a row from March 9 to March 12. The difficult part is remembering who is celebrating on which day.

@pierre: merci beaucoup!
  5:12pm Marmalade kitty:

Happy Birthday Caryn! :)
  5:13pm Caryn:

@MK: thanks, kittycat!
  5:16pm Caryn:

I can't remember this Eurythmics track. Nice to hear it. I wonder when I last listened to "In The Garden"?
  5:16pm other david:

Eurythics to Wire, niiiice.

Belated Happy Birthday Caryn!
  5:16pm Elmer D.:

Hell yes! This is one of my favorite Wire songs. Nice one, Scott.
  5:18pm Caryn:

And here Wire is... Again... Which is a good thing.

@od: thanks!
  5:19pm other david:

hmmph me no spell good

*looks for coffee*
  5:19pm Cecile:

happy birthday, Caryn!
  5:22pm Dave B:

Looks like I missed quite a fun day.

I blame work. HBBD Caryn.

Greetings Mr. Williams
  5:23pm Carmichael:

You kids and your kooky birthday things ... I have a landmark birthday this summer, and I'm not dealing with the concept very well, let alone the reality.

Glad to hear you're enjoying yours, Caryn!
  5:24pm fred:

@Caryn: had I remembered, I might have kept that Della Reese track for the occasion, then forgot. It turned out better this way
  5:28pm fred:

@Carmichael: I stopped caring about my birthdays a while ago, I now reckon my age in WFMU marathons
  5:32pm Cecile:

this is killer
  5:32pm KP:

Caryn, one might not care for Shakespeare or has had too much, but it's still Shakespeare. The Beatles are the Beatles, there is no other (as Gene Clark might say from under his Lennon-like mop). Plus McCartney's guitarist follows me on twitter. :-)
  5:34pm Hugh:

Aw, I heart Wendy Rene. Thanks Scott.
  5:35pm joe d:

Wendy Rene!! Every Wu-Tang fan knows THAT voice!
  5:37pm KP:

Caryn, you say it's your birthday!
  5:40pm Caryn:

@Cecile, KP, Dave & Carmichael: thank you all!

@KP: true enough. Of course, I love both of those. (even if some of Shakespeare's jokes are weak and not all Beatles songs are masterpieces) But being brought up in a household with a bit of the Cavern Club wall framed on the wall, and with a father and brother whose idea of a good time is to name Beatles' album track listings in order, it was kind of inevitable that I'd like the Beatles.
  5:43pm Caryn:

I wonder if the earlier Mussorgsky/Stravinsky discussion will now turn to Ravel?
  5:44pm Andrew Waterloo:

My daughter told me that I listen to a lot of music that only has background singing.
  5:47pm joe d:

that is SO great
  5:48pm Carmichael:

No shit, free form!
  5:49pm bloopy:

what's the trick for a good freeform?
  5:51pm Caryn:

Somehow I suspect Scott's daughter will end up a music critic or DJ. "Disco for boys" is so nicely put that a career talking/writing/otherwise obsessing about music seems to be on the cards.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Scott W:

About 7 or 8 years ago, the FMU staff was surveyed for our "Airwave Idols" trading cards, one question was "what's your personal definition of freeform?"; a large percentage (myself included) answered "never having to say you're sorry". we all thought of the same dumb joke, but it is kinda true
  5:56pm Carmichael:

The only boss you have to report to is someone like Ken.
  5:56pm Caryn:

Nice, Scott. Now I wish the questions had been in the form of sentences you had to finish, with this being: "Freeform is..." That way, I could imagine it being like one of those "Love is..." books and cards.
  5:57pm fred:

And it acts as license to play Yes
  6:00pm Droll:

I have a box of Airwave Idol trading cards (somewhere)! As I recall the reverse side of the cards formed a poster by Roger Dean.
  6:01pm Caryn:

Freeform is saying yes to "Yesyesyesyes".
  6:03pm Danne D:

Thanks for great radio Scott :)
Avatar 4:13pm Droll:

I wanted to listen to some Yes, but I didn't want to mess with TFTO because it takes too long, and then I remembered the last time I tried to dismiss TFTO for being 4 times too long.

I donned my cans and clicked "Pop-up Player" and a few seconds later... well... actually it sounds a lot like the original: everyone soloing all the time, jumping from tempo to tempo, 20-part sonic pileups. It's Yes, only more so. You hear a little bit of a riff and are reminded about a cool section without the burden of sitting through all the noodling surrounding it.

The way parts fade off at the end until you're left with one side playing is very cool, it puts perspective on the Jason Forrest-style assault you just lived through.

It is interesting, however, that there are many occasions when all four sides go quiet, which is only possible because Yes made use of dynamics. Indeed, the secret to loud is soft...

Thanks so much for bringing TFTO*4 to the world. It really works (at certain times)!
