Little Danny's avatar View Little Danny's profile Options

Postwar atmospherica. High bop modernism and Afro-Latin sounds, twilight exotica and soundtrack moods, soul stompers and weepers, hypnotic R&B and blues, mystical '60s pop, lonely country, lonelier rock 'n' roll, instrumental weirdness, electronic creaking. Bringing worlds beyond into the worlds at hand.

Welcome back from Florida, Kris. You were missed!
Avatar 10:16pm Kris Holmes:

thanks mate, it was fun but glad to be back
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm JtotheK:

why do i feel like a line or two from lilac wine was sampled ... that's gonna bother me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Uncle Michael:

Reading up on Betty Blake and this completely sold me: "Her voice is a kind of husky mix of Chris Connor and June Christy..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm coelacanth∅:

g'night hyde
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm coelacanth∅:

i don't feel comfortable ordering a drink. may i request a drink?
  10:19pm MrFab:

"Man, talk about shitting on all the good vibes of Flash's show" - bite your tongue! We are here to dig the cool noir vibes of the evening. I mean, like, crazy daddy. *snap*
Avatar 10:20pm Little Danny:

Ha, thanks MrF! You'd dig the Betty Blake LP the most, Uncle M - it's a stunner
Avatar 10:21pm Flash Strap:

well, anyway, i thought my show's vibes were less "good" than "anxiety related to aging" but that might have just been in my head

this whole set is the fire
Avatar 10:21pm geezerette:

Mrfab, loan me your comb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Uncle Michael:

I just bought the complete sessions CD...you sold it.

oh of course it's Abshire! boy oh boy is he somethin
Avatar 10:23pm Little Danny:

@Uncle M.: the Internet is fun, sometimes! I've made those instantaneous purchases so many times whilst listening to FMU
Avatar 10:24pm Little Danny:

Thanks Flash! That's a tall drink of compliment comin' from ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm Uncle Michael:

Well, let's just say..that happened because the *alternate* sources came up empty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm coelacanth∅:

man i just got my fur up reading about a comment! i had to scroll up to see it was Little Danny who made it.
- fur back down.
Avatar 10:25pm Little Danny:

I owe Adam Lore for many things but especially for hipping me to that Nathan Abshire track
  10:25pm Lore:

Sounds like I got here right on time.
Avatar 10:26pm Little Danny:

Boom! Hi Adam!

("...shitting on all the good vibes..." comment)
i guess it's okay to say it about one's own show!

alabama bus is so great
Avatar 10:29pm Little Danny:

Thanks Coel! I appreciate that
Avatar 10:30pm Little Danny:

@Kris this 45 just arrived in the mail today!
Avatar 10:31pm Little Danny:

Adam Lore, Kris Holmes: either of you know anything about Brother Will Hairston? He had at least one other 45, that's about all I know...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Uncle Michael:

Danny, seriosly...ask Kevin Nutt.
  10:37pm Lore:

Unfortunately I can't help on the Bro. Hairston front. I know he had quite a few 45s, but this single is the only one I have, on 78 (which sounds quite different than the 45 even though it seems to be the same recording). I suspect Kris & Kevin would know more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Uncle Michael:

btw, I'm co-hosting Kevin's week two marathon show when I'm in Jersey City.
Avatar 10:48pm Little Danny:

Oh that's awesome Michael. And I'm jealous that you'll be in Jersey City at FMU central. Next year, brother
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Uncle Michael:

Do it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Uncle Michael:

OK, I'm putting this crappy cold to bed. I travel in 13 days and I ant to be well. Play my lullabies, Danny. TIA
Avatar 10:55pm Little Danny:

G'night Michael! See ya tomorrow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm coelacanth∅:

feel better Uncle M - 'night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm melinda:

It's always fun seeing who ends up co-hosting which show. Noticing that the DJs seemed to be having fun together during the fundraising effort was one of the things that got me more interested in FMU, the party vibe is appealing.
Avatar 11:01pm Little Danny:

Me too Melinda. FMU fundraising is actually a lotta fun to listen to, as opposed to the onerous slog of NPR's pledge drives
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm melinda:

This Kenneth Patchen reading is great.
Avatar 11:03pm geezerette:

Been working/lurking, but ducking in to say listening all the way.
This blue flame is only the coolest.

Thanks, Geez, that's it. Good lord my memory
Avatar 11:24pm geezerette:

My pleasure, LD! I love that film.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm Doug Schulkind:

In high school I played drums in a punk band called the Onerous Slogs. No I didn't.
Avatar 11:26pm geezerette:

Oh you should have. No, you shouldn't.
  11:27pm MrFab:

classic Wanda! Saw her live a few years ago, and she's currently on tour. check her while you can, peeps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm JtotheK:

i'm obligated to mention that a dear pal (now deceased, sniffle) provided the 'Funnel of Love' 45 that is used in the Jarmusch film 'Only Lovers Left Alive'.
Avatar 11:31pm Little Danny:

Need to see that movie, J2tK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm JtotheK:

speaking of bernadette peters "we'll start the party again" is a cool northern 45.
Avatar 11:36pm Little Danny:

Never heard that, thanks for the tip!
Avatar 11:37pm Dano59:

love this Bernadette Peters. And that one.
... oh Danny! you played *the* Jackie!
Avatar 11:41pm Dano59:

@JtotheK -- I tried in vain to get that slowed-down with my own Funnel 45 on the radio one night. I think they were playing it at, oh, 39 1/2 rpm in the film.
Avatar 11:42pm Little Danny:

Hi Dano, I was trying to remember who'd mentioned "Splendor in the Grass" during a previous show. Glad you were here!
Avatar 11:43pm Little Danny:

I'm back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm JtotheK:

yeah, that intro scene from 'Only Lovers' i knew was slowed down, but not sure to what speed!
  11:45pm MrFab:

I totally know that Latin femme track that was just playing but can't quite place it...
Avatar 11:48pm Dano59:

indeed! thanks for the recall! What the world needs now is more Jackie!
Avatar 11:53pm Little Danny:

Absolutely Dano!
Avatar 11:54pm Little Danny:

God I love saying "Schulkind Country." That would be a good name for an FMU premium CD
Avatar 11:56pm Little Danny:

J2tK: I wanted to play at least one soul/R&B 45 for you tonight, it's coming up in a minute or two!
Avatar 11:59pm geezerette:

Thanks Danny,great show always!

Night all!
