Hello Kurt and common and Cheri
I'm enjoying a rare live show today, great so far. That Dither is already clicky-starred
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm northguineahills:

Kurt is playing music that's unfamiliar to me, and it's good shit!
Avatar 3:24pm Kurt Gottschalk:

hey y'alls. we'll have a little party up in here even if it's only just us. thanks for tuning in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm braveness23:

B23 here!
Avatar 3:26pm Mary Wing:

All songs need to have significant high-hat action, to mirror Minnesota Jeff's gif.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm braveness23:

Great song. Who in the heck have I heard cover this? Big Star?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm northguineahills:

*breaks out the eggnog*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm common:

hello everyone! Now, who's got the beers?
Avatar 3:29pm steve:

Mary Wing, your ideas are intriguing to me and i wish to subscribe to your newsletter
Avatar 3:29pm Chris from DC:

Just about to make a beer run.

Oh, duh. Velvet Underground. <facepalm>

I really don't remember the RuPaul xmas album. Where was I?!!
Avatar 3:33pm Mary Wing:

I loved my Secret Santa song! Thanks Kurt for creating this activity!
Avatar 3:36pm Kurt Gottschalk:

aw shucks, mary. my pleasure.

I had no idea the NPG were active in the late 90s. *wikis* What do know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Carmichael:

Heya, Koit. Hi all you freaks on that side.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm northguineahills:

I thought I had all of Dj Wally's stuff. I believe I don't have that one. If I remember correctly, Dj Wally is the nephew of Paul Simon (or some close relation).

hi Kurt, are you taking requests?
Avatar 3:47pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ngh: srsly?
?: doubtful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm northguineahills:

Dj Olive told me that's how he got rights to sample the 59th St Bridge Song.
Avatar 3:52pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ah, interesting. i like his stuff. his uncle's too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm fred:

That scream you just heard was Richard Ashcroft remembering that time he punched Mick Jagger's nephew in the face
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm fred:

Whenever a great musician dies, I'm reminded of hearing Scott McDowell say he had a regular segment of Cecil Taylor's music because he wanted to pay tribute to a great musician while he was alive. Doug seems to have felt the same
Avatar 4:19pm Kurt Gottschalk:

it's a noble dj goal for sure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm fred:

I hope Prince lives a lot longer, I'd hate to see the competition between you and Duane for the most complete yet obscure tribute
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm northguineahills:

Back on the phone queue waiting to fix my unemployment claim. On furlough until late January, and w/ a new administration, it's not 100% bet my contract will be re-signed.
Avatar 4:31pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ha! maybe a peaceful 6-hour tag team set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm fred:

@NGH: I hope it will turn out for the best. Maybe Apple will come calling again the minute you sign

The YL stuff was a revelation! Thanks, Kurt. I saw him once when I was a kid but had no idea of his depth.

Avatar 4:40pm Kurt Gottschalk:

nice to hear from you, miguel. amazing that you saw him!
Avatar 4:40pm Kurt Gottschalk:

whoops! thanks, mn jf
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm northguineahills:

Ok, I'm eligible come Jan 6th (b/c I made too much $$?, that's what they told me) even though I haven't worked since Dec 10th. I have enough money to last me until the end of February, but it does make it hard to save money w/ gaps in paychecks.

I think I might email that Apple maps guy again, thanks for reminding me fred!
Avatar 4:42pm frasconi:

In Long Beach, CA in the late 60s. A few days after hearing Duke Ellington at Disneyland. M'dad was a total jazz head.
Avatar 4:43pm Kurt Gottschalk:

no matter how long i live i'll never see duke ellington in concert. *sigh*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Minnesota Jeff:

What about that Duke Ellington that plays the bass with his wiener? You could go see him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm northguineahills:

Kurt, you'd have a shot if you lived in the opposite direction on the fourth dimensional plane.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm fred:

Wow! Party like it's 19990! Now that's lasting power
Avatar 4:50pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ngh, yeah, but the rents are so steep!
Avatar 4:50pm Kurt Gottschalk:

mn jf, wut?
Avatar 4:54pm Droll:

[blissed out by reeds and brass]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Minnesota Jeff:

DJKG, you know, the other Duke Ellington. Plays bass with his wiener.
Avatar 4:56pm Kurt Gottschalk:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm Minnesota Jeff:

No one makes the world seem like its going to end at any moment, quite like Woody Guthrie.
Avatar 5:04pm Kurt Gottschalk:

so true
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Carmichael:

Boy, some Ian Dury would fit well here. Gotta remember this mix.
Avatar 5:15pm Kurt Gottschalk:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Carmichael:

Oh, no problemo. It was more of a "note to self".

Avatar 5:21pm kat330:

Hey, Kurt! Just had to stop in to mention what a fine program this has been, this set in particular. Thanks!
Avatar 5:22pm kat330:

And all the Lateef, it goes without saying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm northguineahills:

Wow, missed this Dirty Three the first time around. Lovely!
Avatar 5:25pm Kurt Gottschalk:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Minnesota Jeff:

Avatar 5:35pm Kurt Gottschalk:

...to me - NYE & St. Patty's are the two nights *not* to go to pub. That is all.
Avatar 5:44pm kat330:

@Fred: Oui, agreed!
@RR: Yep, I agree!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm northguineahills:

Sweet Kat! I know what I'm playing at 6:01!

I prefer house parties and friends' pads for NYE. Nothing too big.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm northguineahills:

Happy New Year, not to be confused w/ the band New Year (w/ the guys from Bedhead).

Always love the Dixie Humingbirds.
