Hey, Kurt....Happy New Year. Reading up on "Funnel of Love." It was the B-side of "Right or Wrong" and it featured Roy Clark on guitar.

Hey Kurt! Happy New Year to all!

Shall I compare thee to a winter's funnel?
...Orbison only sang that way one day to make a record. Nobody could sing like that - like - all the time

10 min & I'm hooked. Short songs are good.

Love this, Macca at his passionate, wildly creative best

Having to try to post several times to get through...

Katherine, I've been in NewYork for thirty years, and I learned about FMU very soon when I moved there. I only moved back recently

He was a great tunester, ngh.

The tasty surface noise perfectly compliments my bittersweetly nostalgic New Year's mood

This loituma sounds like doo-wop filtered by polka.

WFMU used to play a lot of Värttinä too!

Now here's a track that Gaylord would have played. Not that that's a significant measure of anything.
Avatar 9:30pm

Ah, Värttinä!

I wanna be intoxicated like Serge is intoxicated

Kurt Gottschalk:

thanks for hanging in there, everyone! i'll fill in the middle part of the playlist later tonight. sorry for the tech problems.

Really great show, but I find myself waiting for the Debbie Reynolds tribute. Not that I expect to hear one, but I'm waiting for it anyway. Capricious creature that I am.
V Priceless:

thanks Kurt! Cool show!

Webhamster Henry:

This was a nice way to kick off the year - a little bit of nods to Gaylord as well.
Avatar 4:25am
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...So - is Kurt riffing on the Gaylord thang like an Eastern Bloc nation trying to reverse-engineer a Parisian cultural expression
- & of course it turns out something else, but happens to be uniquely fascinating & affecting anyhow?
...Probably no, & definitely yes.
