One of my best friends who's name happens to be Matt came for a visit the other night he told me he felt Steve Marriott was a "Sub-Par" white soul singer. I lost it on him. I don't feel bad...
Avatar 2:41pm Scott C.:

A very crazy first set of tunes, even for you Matt F! My role model Alfred E. Neuman, followed not long after by Christian D'Orbit which is one side of my favorite Syracuse, NY punk scene single. The Penetrators are getting set to release a new 7" on Slovenly any time now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41pm Carmichael:

Lou funkin' up his original vocal.
Avatar 2:47pm Scott C.:

Matt F being characteristically modest or just plain forgetful today. The best new record of 2014 was (by far) Nobody's Baby by chanteuse Miriam on Norton Records. That's right, I said it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Matt F:

Oops, I forgot! Don't tell Miriam!

"Havin' A Party" -- sigh. Oh, the hours I spent in college and for a few years after, trying futilely to convince my friends that, no, it isn't "a Southside Johnny song."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Parq:

Bobdoes, good gospel will do that for you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm listener james from westwood:

I agree. How about it for Sam Cooke? Got-DAMN!
Avatar 3:18pm kat330:

Hi, Matt -- got here late but glad to catch your soul party. Also glad you cleared up the email issue.

Do at least see Aretha in the mix -- one for the ladies at least!
Avatar 3:23pm βrian:

Inspector Clouseau presents "The Minkys!"
  3:23pm Santos L halper:

@kat: i daresay Sam and Lou would like to think they are also ones for the ladies ; )
Avatar 3:25pm kat330:

@Santos: That's just it: We ladies like to hear wonderful, soulful male voices, so why don't male DJs dig female voices more than 5-10% of the time? And yet love to play men using their falsetto range. It's slightly twisted and peculiar to me. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Stanley:

I love them ladies voices.
This week I watched 20 Feet from Stardom. Wonderful film about female backing singers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm drr:

good movie
Avatar 3:29pm kat330:

@Stanley: Oh, yes, a wonderful doc! Yep, the woman behind the man, a familiar trope.
Avatar 3:31pm kat330:

I realize there are far fewer choices of female artists out there -- wonder why that is? -- but there are more than 10%, and a little extra digging is worth getting a bit closer to parity anyway.
  3:32pm Santos L halper:

Greetings from WFMU: Slightly Twisted and Peculiar
Avatar 3:33pm kat330:

@Santos: Nooooo, this problem is in no way peculiar to WFMU by any means. I guess I just expect more consciousness about it here is all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Stanley:

In many cases in the film, they totally upstaged the male lead (Lisa Fischer and Mick Jagger a notable example)
Avatar 3:38pm kat330:

Our local public music station -- WFPK -- seems to get a better female ratio. They've been playing the heck out of the new Sleater-Kinney, for e.g., which I like much more than I expected to. But seriously I wonder about men enjoying male falsetto over the female voice -- anyone with insights into that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Stanley:

@Kat330 - Matt hears ya!
Avatar 3:43pm kat330:

Yeah, Ann here we are! :)
  3:44pm Dean:

Y'all are talking about female rock and pop singers. Slide on over to classical (lieder recital, opera) and the field opens up splendidly. Can you resist Conchita Supervia singing "Carmen"? Lucia Popp's Mozart? Brigitte Fassbaender's Schubert? Emma Kirkby's Purcell? Judith Nelson's Handel? Nope, betcha can't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm drr:

I mostly don't like the trend towards men singing way up high. Not sure what started it. I mostly noticed it with The Flaming Lips, as the singer went from having a normal, kind-of-lowish voice to a ridiculous squeak.
Avatar 3:45pm kat330:

But again, I don't blame female DJs for playing a majority of male artists if they feel the same way I do about hearing a wonderful instrument from the opposite sex. But I don't get then why the skew to male DJs doesn't then life the female ratio for that same reason in the opposite direction.
Avatar 3:46pm kat330:

@Dean: Hey there! Been looking for your name here and there for almost a week now. Given our classical music interlude last Friday on Gott's list, thought you might appreciate the puns in limerick form I composed and recite here:
Avatar 3:46pm kat330:

("lift" not "life" should be)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Mike East:

@kat - I think it has to do with the sexism overall in the culture. Strong female singers are intimidating to dudes who think they belong at home makin' babies.
Avatar 3:48pm kat330:

@Mike: That might explain the ratio in the ordinary, non-weird, twisted and peculiar station format -- though, oddly enough, Top 40 might be dominated by females these days (don't know, don't listen). BUT no male DJs here at enlightened WFMU/GTDR believe THAT??!! Right??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Stanley:

I think 1'm spoiled for choice for fabulous female voices. One of my favourites, Eddi Reader hardly gets a play on WFMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Stanley:

So how about an all female singers show? Has it been done yet?
Avatar 3:52pm kat330:

@Stanley: Wish I had a thesis to write, because I think an analysis of this whole dingus using WFMU as the control would be extraordinarily revealing. I've noted that the female play, when it occurs, skews heavily to the following artists: Nina Simone, Sandy Denny and Jackie DeShannon OR to keening female voices from Asia.
Avatar 3:52pm bobdoesthings:

thanks mr fiveash.! good stuffff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Mike East:

Trouble's show tends towards female vocals...though she's a female, so maybe that proves your point.
Avatar 3:54pm kat330:

@Stanley: If you go check Jeff G.'s playlist from a few weeks ago, I first broached the topic when I saw he had an exclusively male artist show. We agreed to do an all-female set or show is akin to pandering. How WONDERful if it became a natural, organic thing to hear as many females as males in any given hour of radio from anywhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Stanley:

Add to that Nancy Sinatra and Dusty.
Avatar 3:55pm kat330:

Yes, yes, how could I forget Dusty as the primary go-to! :)
  3:55pm Dean:

Hey, kat! Those are beautiful puns, if that's possible. I will read with greater care later today. Being male, my sense of humor runs toward and rarely escapes from the crudely adolescent, e.g., the concert bill featuring Fux, Suck, and Blow. (Belly laugh.)

I know that sexism is rampant in classical music, too, but I find the distribution of readily available singers is more even. I mean, Cecilia Bartoli, c'mon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Mike East:

I think even progressive weirdos are prone to sexism whether they like to admit it or not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm listener james from westwood:

Smashing programme, Matt! Thanks muchly for the Sam Cooke tribute!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Stanley:

Here comes another of them high pitched fellas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Matt F:

Thanks everybody! Next Time!
Avatar 3:57pm kat330:

@Mike East: I only listen M-Su 9-6 EDT, and this season it is ONLY Trouble's show playing a fairer ratio so far as I can tell.
  3:57pm Dean:

Sexism, like racism, is systemic. That means, among other things, that one can not intend to support the oppression yet nevertheless be complicit with it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Mike East:

yeah, Matt, this made my afternoon way MORE enjoyable and way LESS productive!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Stanley:

Thanks Matt. Great, as always.
Avatar 3:58pm kat330:

@Dean: Yes, I discussed the racism comparison with Liz Berg in email.

Anyway, nuff about it. Just hope things improve on their own.

Thanks, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Mike East:

yeah, what Dean said. you need to actively fight it, otherwise its just THERE.
  4:01pm Dean:

Suck = Suk. Kinda spoiled the dumb joke.
  4:52pm purpleknif:

Another fine show. (Fine as the hair on a dogs ass) Listened to it twice, as a matter of fact. Archive Yvonne
  12:03pm Hackensack Slim:

See the problem is, you stop listenin' at 6:00PM. Might I suggest this show at 7:00-8:00PM on Wednesdays on the Ichiban stream. I bet you'll dig it. I know I do.
