hello Kurt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm listener james from westwood:

How do, Kurt and all! That GIF wouldn't happen to be from "Girls Town," would it?
Avatar 3:06pm geezerette:

Hi Kurt! VP!, ljfww!,...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm annie:

welly welly welly!
  3:06pm Dean:

Is the contest to transcribe what he's saying/singing?

"It's Tampa in a shirt."
Avatar 3:09pm Kurt Gottschalk:

hi all!

if richard gruesome shows up, he can tell us where the gif is from (maybe) and how the contest works. but dean, i'd guess you won it.

Avatar 3:09pm geezerette:

"It's not me, it's you"
Avatar 3:11pm Kurt Gottschalk:

  3:12pm Dean:

Close, geezerette. "It's not me, eschew."

Hey, this Wet Ink record is on the label our President-elect saved from having to move offshore.
Avatar 3:12pm geezerette:

There's a horrifying documentary called"Lonely Boy", I think,
about Anka and it's a fascinating window.
Avatar 3:14pm geezerette:

O god, the dread.
Avatar 3:15pm Kurt Gottschalk:

dean, ha! oh teh noez...
Avatar 3:17pm geezerette:

ha! I need more coffee.
Avatar 3:17pm Richard Gruesome:

It is from Girls Town. Am I revealing the lyric he is singing?
  3:18pm Dean:

Or maybe he's sneezing.
Avatar 3:19pm geezerette:

Paul Anka,everything bad about corporate entertainment.

d'jou guys see kip winger (of winger) was nominated for a best contemporary classical composition grammy?
Avatar 3:21pm V Priceless:

"a samba iiiiiis good!"
Avatar 3:22pm geezerette:

never hoid of him, looking up...
Avatar 3:23pm V Priceless:

word on a winger
  3:24pm Dean:

That is crazy, but then I wonder what are the other "contemporary classical" nominees? Sting or something?
Avatar 3:24pm V Priceless:

did u see Buzz Aldrin's doc @ the hospital in NZ is none other than Dr. David Bowie??
Avatar 3:26pm Richard Gruesome:

I heard that Kaija Saariaho is taking over bass and vocals in Winger
Avatar 3:26pm Kurt Gottschalk:

veepy say wha?
  3:26pm Miguel:

There's a leaf blower outside that works very well with this piece. Thought you should know.
  3:26pm Dean:

An interesting field. I don't really know the others, although I've heard of Higdon, and Muti conducts the Bates with Chicago.
Avatar 3:27pm V Priceless:

yeah..I thought it was a joke, but it's true! www.abc.net.au...
  3:28pm Dean:

Hmmm, in another category the ECM Gesualdo is very attractive. I love the Hilliard Tenebrae from ages ago on ECM.
Avatar 3:29pm Kurt Gottschalk:

rich groo, ha!
miguel, brilliant.
dean, that gesualdo cd is gorgeous.
Avatar 3:29pm Kurt Gottschalk:

veep, i see. that's awesome.
Avatar 3:30pm V Priceless:

(my pick for happy news story of the year)
  3:30pm Dean:

This is a nominee this year: http://www.gramophone.co.uk/review/gesualdo-moro-lasso-o-crux-benedicta-dean-carlo

And this should be in every collection: https://www.discogs.com/Gesualdo-The-Hilliard-Ensemble-Tenebrae/release/1297096 Lord, it's from 1991!
Avatar 3:30pm geezerette:

This is wonderful, and very funny.
Avatar 3:31pm Scraps deSelby:

h'lo hi
  3:31pm Dean:

[Oops. Misread. Thought you wrote, "what gesualdo cd..." Did you mean the new one or the old?
Avatar 3:31pm Kurt Gottschalk:

the new one, dean. i liked it a lot.
  3:32pm Dean:

Will investigate, thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Stanley:

Kurt yass!
  3:34pm Dean:

Yow, and the first volume in a series of Penderecki conducting his own music! On Warner Classics!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm listener james from westwood:

@Richard Gruesome—Aaaaah, I knew my viewership of MST3K would come in handy! They gave that film the business at one point. Mel Tormé was also in it but not as a singer.
Avatar 3:39pm Kurt Gottschalk:

totally read "singer" as "sniper"
  3:42pm Dean:

I'm thinking font style and color on black background are toying with our eyes.
Avatar 3:43pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i'm thinking vitriol and end times is toying with my mind
  3:44pm Dean:

Sorry, a CSS won't help with that.
Avatar 3:47pm Kurt Gottschalk:

the third coast percussion plays steve reich album that got nominated is pretty nice as well. i've played that on the show, i think the ecm gesualdo as well.
  3:59pm Miguel:

This is beautiful music. But it makes me want to eat bacon for some reason.
Avatar 4:01pm Kurt Gottschalk:

bacon veggieburger, miguel?
  4:03pm Miguel:

Mmm, my fav! But no, not today. Just bacon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm listener james from westwood:

@Kurt, being the Velvet Fog would be the perfect cover for secretly being a sniper/international assassin. Who'd have said no to Mel?
Avatar 4:27pm Kurt Gottschalk:

excellent point ljfww!
(and now i see what geezerette meant before.)
  4:28pm Dean:

It just occurred to me that this Reich piece is spelling something out in Morse Code.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Jeff Golick:

"Some piss tree" ?
  4:28pm Dean:

Tut! "Sophistry."
Avatar 4:29pm geezerette:

Kurt@ 3:43, It's impossible to both know that and pretend not to so you can do all the things we've always done. Incredibly stressful. Music always helps.
Avatar 4:33pm Kurt Gottschalk:

impossible, geez? impossible?
Avatar 4:36pm geezerette:

I meant impossible to bear, day after day. I'm trying so hard,like we all are stay human, be able to laugh without bitterness, not to give in. I could say more, but couldn't we all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Jeff Golick:

Was hoping that was it, @Dean, but it doesn't fit the lips. And if the lips don't fit, we must acquit.
Avatar 4:43pm Kurt Gottschalk:

geez, yes, yes.
  4:43pm Dean:

I'm not a-cquitter.
Avatar 4:44pm geezerette:

oops. the fat lady is singing.
Avatar 4:44pm Kurt Gottschalk:

gotta go?
Avatar 4:46pm geezerette:

no ,I was being dark. And thinking of Looney Tunes.
Avatar 4:47pm geezerette:

Sorry. :)
Avatar 4:47pm Kurt Gottschalk:

oh, we are the boys from the chorus, we hope you'll like our show...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm listener james from westwood:

Headache I've had since noon is finally lifting. I choose to think it's this track.
Avatar 4:56pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i'm certain it is, james.
Avatar 4:57pm Kurt Gottschalk:

three minutes left - let's see if we can't do something to make it come back...
Avatar 4:58pm geezerette:

Wonderful show,Kurt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Stanley:

This is a beautiful piece. Thanks Kurt
  5:03pm Dean:

Coincidence. During the last track I was wondering, KG, whether you'd heard Fretwork's Petrucci record.

Avatar 5:04pm Kurt Gottschalk:

not that one, thanks for the tip!
  5:06pm from Quebec:

what geez said. These 4-h shows you've been doing have been great. many thanks! (btw, that would be Giovanni and not Giovani (Bonato))
Avatar 5:10pm geezerette:

Avatar 5:23pm Kurt Gottschalk:

thanks and thanks from q! only two more left after today.
Avatar 5:46pm V Priceless:

Avatar 5:47pm Kurt Gottschalk:

  5:53pm Dean:

My mom went to school with Lloyd Thaxton. This comment is relevant to FMR's Mancini Project.

Avatar 5:56pm Kurt Gottschalk:

Avatar 5:58pm geezerette:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm listener james from westwood:

Never explicitly realized the Peter Gunn line in "Planet Claire" until you played em back-to-back.
  6:04pm V Priceless:

ha I forgot you go till 7pm! Senior moment!
  6:08pm Dean:

Petula Clark was fat? Phat, perhaps.
Avatar 6:28pm Scraps:

Your brother Bob?? That's a twist!
Avatar 6:44pm Scraps:

Avatar 6:45pm Scraps:

Love this song. Love "Stormy" too.
Avatar 6:46pm Kurt Gottschalk:

what about THIS?
  6:47pm V Priceless:

Avatar 6:49pm Scraps:


How about "So Into You"?

Avatar 6:50pm Kurt Gottschalk:

'so into you' is way too long! i only got time for one more, if that...
  6:51pm V Priceless:

forgot how Tubular Bellsish this part is!
Avatar 6:52pm Kurt Gottschalk:

it was in the air!
Avatar 6:52pm Kurt Gottschalk:

they cut that middle part for the radio edit, as i recall.
  6:52pm V Priceless:

for sure!
Avatar 6:53pm Scraps:

Oh yea
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm listener james from westwood:

Good Gibb tune!
