Casiotone, take my pain away.

Something intriguing about this Muzak.

I feel like I'm at the piano/organ store at any shopping mall.

ah the rich and dulcet tones of first rate muzak.

Super Aw∑some!

While Nancy slept, that track went well with the Pepto-Spazmol character above.
  9:15am pierre:

that falling sumotori is really hypnotizing me/

haircuts now is one of the best songs ever.
  9:20am anne:

good morning, Ken and everybody! happy to join live again, it's been awhile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20am Ken:

Thanks Common. I think "Almost Cut My Hair" is one of the unintentionally funniest songs ever.
  9:21am Oates & Hall:

Daryl and John have very nice haircuts. And one even sports a very swanky moustache.
  9:25am patradio:

Thanks for the Meat Puppets!
  9:27am Caryn:

Hello all! Can't believe I missed last week's show because I got the day of the week wrong. (The day I thought was Wednesday was actually Thursday.) Losing track of time...
  9:28am Cheri Pi:

must have inspired Purling Hiss - Almost Washed My Hair
  9:31am Sam:

How can I log on to the Titanic-free internet??
  9:31am Capt Steuben:

Don't forget the Blood Orange's hard rocking bluegrass Titanic
  9:31am northguineahills:

You could take up almost a third of your show w/ Gavin Bryars' "Sinking of the Titanic".
  9:32am KP:

Fare thee well, Titanic, fare thee well.
  9:33am dw:

Thanks for thems Meat Puppets, Ken!
  9:33am dcp@:

missed the Pups BUT I made it for Spiritualized.
  9:33am Sam:

We used to sing this horrible campfire song called "It was sad when the great ship went down".
  9:33am MD:

gOOD mORNING...Freeform Nation....XOXO!
  9:34am listener mark:

Play a two hour retrospective of Barry Manilow! He writes the songs that make the young girls cry. He writes the songs, he writes the songs!
  9:35am Cheri Pi:

How's that mischievous puss Dr. Ernest Freedman Booty grabber?
  9:35am dcp@:

if this song were about 5 minutes shorter, it'd be perfect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38am Ken:

Dr Bootygrabber is THE BEST. I love that cat!
  9:39am Caryn:

Maybe one day a gif of your kitty will grace the playlist, Ken?
  9:39am Cecile:

morning all.

  9:41am Sam:

Cats rule!
  9:42am dcp@:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42am Ken:

No Caryn, Dr Bootygrabber isnt allowed on the internet. He is against cats on the internet in general. He feels that it dilutes the brand. And of course he wouldnt want to be a hypocrite.
  9:45am Cecile:

does he take office visits from the other kitties in the neighborhood?
If he does, you may want to get that fixed...
  9:45am hamburger:

Distortion Rulz▓▒░▓░
  9:45am Liz E.:

But man, I still think them cats are crazy.
  9:48am northguineahills:

Just what I needed this morning, Furries in the act...
  9:48am Andrew Waterloo:

*sigh* cats....
  9:49am Cecile:

This song is very different when a woman sings it.
A lot of like Scrawl's Public Image cover.
  9:49am dcp@:

man this is a great cover.
  9:51am Andrew Waterloo:

Once saw a show on CBC about Furries and since I was only half paying attention, and they have community standards, I was under the impression they just liked to walk around dressed like animals.
  9:53am Former QotSA listener:

Dear Josh Homme:
Please make nice with Mark Lanegan and Dave Grohl and make some good records again.
  9:53am tim from champaign:

Cecile, what PiL cover did Scrawl do? I think Scrawl's records still hold up really well.
  9:54am KP:

Pepsi please!
  9:55am Caryn:

@Andrew: I wonder if such people also exist? It would be like transvestisism, but with mascot costumes.
  9:55am dcp@:

excellent choice (STs)--this was the first time MTV played anything that sounded like hardcore.
  9:55am trance:

Whats that smell?
  9:55am Cecile:

They did Public Image.
  9:56am Cecile:

I love that album card. Awesome.
  9:57am patradio:

Scrawl still rules. They play out a couple times a year here in Columbus/
  9:57am Dave B:

Good morning
  9:57am Dan B From Upstate:

Hmm... my youth.
  9:58am MD:

  9:59am PKNY:

That talking egg is messing with my mind, man.
  9:59am Cecile:

They spoke to me more than the riot grrls because they were more blue-collar and pragmatic.
  10:00am Dave B:

WHEEZER: Stymie, where'd you ever get this idea that ham and eggs could talk?
STYMIE: Well, I'se full of ideas when I'se hungry.
DOROTHY: Aw, I knew ham and eggs couldn't talk.
STYMIE: Well, they're saying hello to my stomach riiiiight now!
  10:00am hamburger:

Mocking Egg

@Dave B - I got your Boullabaisse Mix CD. It is very very well put together!
  10:01am Dave B:

Thanks Hamburger! I had fun doing that, and hope Meghan does another mix tape swap this year!

DO NOT play the Skeeball disc in a slot loading player!
  10:02am Caryn:

I occasionally get that with my eggs. Never thought about the "talking" aspect of it before. But I think that's because I don't keep my yokes whole, so I don't get the eye effect.
  10:03am hamburger:

Yea I got the note heh
  10:03am patradio:

Cecile, yep. Definitely cool people. Marcy owns a club now in Columbus, Ace of Cups. Sue has a project called Fort Shame. Has ATP already happened? They were set to play that both here and over in England.
  10:04am john:

Oh! I'd like a ticket to the Bob Fass film!
  10:07am Caryn:

BTW, just got a heap of swag yesterday. A bunch of stuff still on backorder, but some lovely stuff finally here to listen to, so yay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08am Ken:

Great John - Email me your name and address to ken at wfmu dot org and I will send you the ticket info.
  10:09am tim from champaign:

Ken, what was the misinformation that you requested us listeners to spread a few years back?
  10:09am dcp@:

I'm having a not-dog and chips for breakfast and I don't care.
  10:09am Bill:

I'd like tickets for an early screening... committed to The Motogators at Union Pool at 9.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10am Ken:

OK Bill, email me your name and address - early tickets we got - ken at wfmu dot org
  10:10am Dan B From Upstate:

tim, wasn't it something about Lady Gaga costumes and Bed Bugs?
  10:12am dcp@:

this sounds a bit like that Zombie Halloween tune...don't know if they're related.
  10:14am dcp@:

..but that was Otto von Schirach
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15am Ken:

Yes, I think the rumor I wanted to start was that Lady Gaga Halloween costumes were infected with Bed Bugs.
  10:16am tim from champaign:

Yeah! Thanks Dan B!
  10:19am valerie:

awesome show, ken
  10:21am Cecile:

argh! It be talk like a pirate day, matey.
  10:23am trish:

This show is tweaking my drumming ear this morning. Outside of that, 'what the hell time is it?'

No, I dont think Steve Post is doing The No Show any longer. He is in the Bob Fass doc, btw.

hey Ken!

I was all the time here. Didn't realize show already started. I was totally immerse in a Messer Chups playlists at the Youtubes! Wow! Can't believe I never paid attention to them before.
  10:48am jan:

So what can you tell us about Schlammpeitziger from Schwingstelle Für Rauschabzug? I'm enjoying their music! Available for purchase locally?
  10:51am dictater:

any body know what happened/ is happening with flash pop up player, about two weeks ago the window changed so that i cant track back and forth and tonight its dead, or dropping after 30 seconds? any one, any one, any one
  10:52am Nad:

just get a real player, you will be much happier and your computer might even run a little faster
  10:54am robyn:

or get songbird.
  10:54am robyn:

sounds superior to flash, anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54am Ken:

dictater - You might want to use winamp or iTunes to listen, as the flash player has been acting strangely since we moved to the cloud. Jan, I dont know much about them - they are from Cologne, I think.
  10:55am Peanut Gallery:

Camper van! ok, it's the original...
  11:02am Caryn:

You would think having a kid in your horn would muffle the sound, thus defeating the purpose of playing a horn in the first place.
  11:04am trish:

Though it isn't just a kid, it's a kid playing a horn. Bell in bell.
  11:06am f0f0 (:

pierre, Ken, people!
I finally had my first dream about this show!!
But I'm sorry to say but there was no Nakedness! Actually it was more about the playlist's comments. Ken was playing some anti-war songs and I suggested to play Stock, Housen and Walkman, but somehow I couldn't write that down no matter how hard I tried I'd just ended up typing STOCKHOUSE.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08am Ken:

fofo, that is an autocorrect nightmare! I have those all the time. I wake up screaming and my typing finger is bloody.
  11:08am DJKurtG:

Thanx for the Brax morning march!
  11:09am Cecile:

oh, this is a great Braxton tune.
  11:10am Dan B From Upstate:

Dumb smartphone...
  11:13am f0f0 (:

Another classy set FTW!
  11:13am Caryn:

@trish: true, but the kid has a trumpet, so a different brass instrument. The orchestration's going to hell if that's supposed to replace the tuba/sousafone/whatever that the kid's blocking.
  11:15am Dan B From Upstate:

Oppa Gunganm Sigh? i sense a mashup opportunity.
  11:18am Carmichael:

Music Noir. Howdy all.
  11:18am Caryn:

Those are some relaxed chickens for a ritual killing. Because if I was a chicken and anywhere near a ritual sacrifice, I'd be worried that I was next. If I had the cognitive capabilities for it, of course.
  11:19am BSI:

Now we need an embryo (with piccolo) in the kid's trumpet.
  11:19am trish:

@caryn- Sure, assuming the tuba orchestration is what they're going for.
Considering the departure from the norm in the rig, I'd guess or maybe wonder otherwise.

Could be the sound is all about the kid and the tuba is the fun chair.
  11:23am Cecile:

  11:23am trish:

A score that's titled, 'RNA virus' ?
  11:24am Carmichael:

You can't spell "fun" without "bagpipes".
  11:24am Caryn:

@trish: true, but I sure hope that's not a marching band, because a tuba on its' own is heavy enough. With a kid in it, that's gonna be hell to carry around.
  11:25am Danny Boy:

the pipes are callin'!
  11:26am Dave B:

@Caryn - i'd like to see that kid get shot out like a circus cannon!
  11:26am trish:

@caryn: it'd be a fun ride for the kid
  11:27am Caryn:

Just trying to determine the track listing here, as Saor is Irish, but Duncarron is in Scotland... Hmm. But those are Irish bagpipes.
  11:30am Caryn:

But Saor Patrol are Scottish, so nevermind. A little googling sorted that out.
  11:31am MD:

Hoiw aboot some Rusty Nails...???
  11:31am f0f0 (:

I think, Caryn, that only thing we can know for sure is that those bagpipes were made in China.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31am Ken:

Dare I play the Red Hot Chili Pipers sound unheard?
  11:32am Carmichael:

@Caryn: The Irish pipes are Uilleann pipes, played by bellows. You must have a good ear to distinguish them from the Scottish babgpipes. They do have a wider range, though, so maybe they are discernable. Just not to me.
  11:32am Caryn:

@f0f0 (: hah!
@Ken: go for it!
  11:36am Caryn:

@Carmichael: actually, you can usually tell them apart. The Uillean pipes are much more melodic. But they're easier to tell apart in groups. With just one bagpipe, they do sound way more similar. As the song went on, the bagpipe let off some more Scottish wails, so now I suspect I was wrong in my initial assessment, though, so it's not as if I can be said to have a good ear. I have hung out with pipers a lot, though.
  11:37am Cecile:

Good pipers, meh song selection.
  11:37am Cecile:

this one is good!
  11:37am hamburger:

I'd love to see this being played...
  11:37am Cecile:

this grooves.
  11:38am Caryn:

I think the Hendrix was the best one so far. It seems a good choice for the pipes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38am Ken:

Yeah, it wasnt easy but I found one that was playable...
  11:38am Carmichael:

Urban Turban plays this type of stuff regularly, with some oud and bouzouki thrown in for good measure.
  11:39am f0f0 (:

I'm now picturing Hendrix jamming with the pipes. Can't tell you what he's licking.
  11:39am Andrew Waterloo:

For some reason I want to hear Real MacKenzie's now.
  11:39am m:

Where are the sea shanties? What kind of Talk Like A Pirate Day doesn't have sea shanties?
  11:39am trish:

To continue listening to Bagpipe music press 1.

To stop press 2.
  11:40am Caryn:

f0f0 (:, I'm picturing Hendrix setting the bagpipes down and setting them on fire. While they're still wailing.
  11:41am Dave B:

Me and some friends built a device we called "the Bag Pipe" out of plumbing supplies. Fill the middle chamber up with combustibles, power it all by a balloon filled with nitrous...

  11:45am Andrew Waterloo:

I think I've had similar Psy vs. Sigh conversations.
  11:45am YETI BOB:

  11:45am BSI:

but nobody ever mentions where the warm jets GO, after they get here...
  11:46am YETI BOB:

This is good, but the live version on "Serpent" is even better - BLAZING.
  11:46am Andrew Waterloo:

@BSI, maybe it's a hot tub reference
  11:46am Caryn:

Eno's anthemic celebration of the day his jacuzzi was finally installed.
  11:48am YETI BOB:

Hate to say this, but the "warm jets" are pee... Look closely at the cover, and listen closely to the lyrics.
  11:48am kme in chi:

This track is the all-around winner of winning tracks of all time. Circle meets Eno at his best.
  11:49am Caryn:

@Yeti Bob: so, "Eno's anthemic celebration of the day R. Kelly popped in for lunch".
  11:51am ENO:

The title Warm Jets came from the guitar sound on the track of that name, which I described on the track sheet as 'warm jet guitar', because it sounded like a tuned jet. Then I had the pack of playing cards with the picture of the woman in there, and they sort of connected. That was one of the things that was going on at the time: this idea that music was still tied to some idea of revolution, and that one of the revolutions was a sexual revolution. I wasn't making a big political point, I just liked having fun with those things. Most people didn't realise for a long time -- it was rather deeply concealed!
  11:51am Andrew Waterloo:

It's just the story of a young man's enjoyment of an uninterrupted Sunday evening swim.
  11:51am still b/p:

When the Warm Jets get here, they go under the highway to fight the Cold Sharks. Or have a pee-off with them...Wet Side Story.
  11:53am BSI:

Holy crap. Your humble BSI is on this Husik tune. Suddenly feeling very old.
  11:54am f0f0 (:

What do you mean BSI?

I love this (Up) song.
  11:54am pierre:

Many is going on here. I'm not good at keeping in touch with all the conversation. But it's good to know its happening. Enjoyed the circle track.
  11:54am Caryn:

Gotta say, Claire Dodd was hot.

Great BSI, thanks a lot for that song! Is one of my favourite tunes that I have found in Ken's show.
