Hello again Rex!
For what it's worth, the link on the WFMU home page still leads to the earlier playlist
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Guido from Cologne:

Thank you Fred!
How did you find it?
Avatar 1:33pm fred:

@Guido: I went through the Fool's Paradise Playlists page when I figured something had gone wrong. I think it's because the show number (55309) is actually lower now than for the first hour (55310), so the "next playlist" feature didn't work
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Parq:

Thanks for the tip, Fred.
Avatar 1:37pm fred:

@Parq: I wouldn't have left fellow fools stranded in their search for paradise, so I thought I'd put a signpost

Damn, those stupid straight logics! *g*

Easter Egg Surprise! An extra hour of Fool's Paradise !

I have a late 70ies Chiswick H.P.S.-compilation with a weird biker cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54pm ChrisB.:

Ahh, that's better. Bring on Fool's Paradise.
Avatar 1:57pm fred:

@Guido: I'm deep in reading Wittgenstein again (a seasonal ailment for me), and I was just reading about "knowing how to go on" and number series, so it was weirdly appropriate that 55309 did come after 55310
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Guido from Cologne:

So you went deep into Wittgenstein in order of being prepared to save us from being lost in the playlist desert! Very nice of you! ;-)
I'm a notorious figure-twister. Best equip for coding.

... and I love Dave Bartholomew.
Anyone familiar with Jimmy Beasley?
Avatar 2:09pm fred:

@Guido: maybe you can answer a puzzling question for me: does the German word "darĂ¼ber" have a sense of "over" or "above" as well as "about"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Guido from Cologne:

all three, which leads to a lot of translation misrtakes done by Germans.
Avatar 2:28pm fred:

@Guido: Wonderful! It might validate a link between 6.54 and 7 that's in the Pears/McGuiness translation but not in the Ogden one

(I was referring to the tractatus logico-philosophicus, which I still consult when faced with a thorny coding problem)

Loved it, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Guido from Cologne:

Mr. Lee Smith ... hehe
Avatar 3:00pm fred:

Thanks Rex! I didn't know about Huey, now I want to hear more of his music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Guido from Cologne:

some good CDS are there
  9:20pm Sawsee:

Opera and this comment board gives me the creeps
  5:17pm saxmanrick:

Anyone know if the early set fill in for Shelley; song played Benny Spellman - Roll On. Is that the Ace 45 or is it the Soul Stirrings CD track?
  5:19am saxmanrick:

Thanks, Rex!!!
