I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

Good morning fred, james, Mayuko tmoyo, Sem and all! I think it may be full Vertigo for me today.

Hey there Mayuko and Listenerds!

@tmoyo I think if you walk through that two trees you'd be taken into some other world!!!! & thanks for tuning in!!!!!

Full Vertigo's good for what ails ya!

frozen host sounds to me like something defrosting?
Avatar 12:11pm Mayuko:

Hellos, Sem, thanks for tuning in!
Buenos dias rw!! Full Vertigo may sound not very healthy but it sure is a good thing!!!!

Joyeux Noël, Madmoiselle Mayuko
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Dropof Goldensun:

Oh wow, I really like this!
  12:15pm rw:

Morning Joe! What's going on? Mayuko, it's a risk I'm willing to take.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm tmoyo:

Mayuko, exactly! it has a bit of a lynchian feel to it i suppose. I'd love to see this picture enlarged in print. Beautiful gray tones.
Avatar 12:15pm Mayuko:

@Dropof Philip Sanderson is just AMAZING!!!!!!! & thanks for tuning in!!
  12:16pm rw:

Everyone else sees a face in that photo, right? It's not just me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Dropof Goldensun:

I'm going to have to dig a little deeper. Thank you!
Avatar 12:18pm Mayuko:

Happy to have you here, listnerd Joe B!!
Hellos rbrt! I only know that this radio host is not the frozen host.

Hi, Mayuko and Drummies. Happy Solstice +1.

Merry Christmas to you too, P-90!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Dropof Goldensun:

@rw - I see something completely different and I'm not going to say what it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm tmoyo:

@rw, now I see a frog with a Dr Lecter mask
Avatar 12:21pm fred:

@rw: Now that you mention it, I guess I can summon enough pareidolia to see it
  12:25pm rw:

Ha! Good answers. I feel better now. But I'm a little worried about Dropof...
Avatar 12:25pm Mayuko:

@Dropof He's been running his label since the 80's snatchtapes.bandcamp.com... Though I only learned about him when his Reprint was reprinted in early 2000's (and it wasn't under his real name so it took me a while to understand what that was all about.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Mayuko & others
Avatar 12:26pm Mayuko:

@tmoyo I'd love that too! I couldn't find who took this photo, and apparently the original was in colors. Someone converted into B/W and posted on tumblr, that was the one I first stumbled upon. I think it looks much better this way.
Avatar 12:27pm Mayuko:

Hellos Ken! Happy second day of the winter to you too!
  12:29pm rbrt:

I feel like I've heard sanderson's voice on old audio books lol
Avatar 12:30pm Mayuko:

Hey coelacanth∅! Thanks for tuning in!
Avatar 12:31pm fred:

I got drafted into a media survey earlier today (serious stuff, three weeks of daily reporting my media habits). So if some reports comes out in March saying there are a hundred thousand WFMU listeners in France, it's just me and a small sample size
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm Dropof Goldensun:

I appreciate the concern, and yes there is plenty to worry about! It's nothing bad. I also like the image very much. For me I suppose it reads a bit like MOTHER nature quite literally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Dropof Goldensun:

Mayuko thanks for that link and additional info!
Avatar 12:36pm Mayuko:

@rbrt You might be actually right about the voice coming from old audio book sort of thing. I think those voices are probably samplings from such resources (the digital release I bought didn't come with any info!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi Mayuko! nice wintry mix here!
Avatar 12:36pm fred:

I like this Islaja track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm coelacanth∅:

interesting picture
at first i thought it was a cave or something with 2 human-made pillars in the entrance. i wonder what did that to those trees.
Avatar 12:37pm Sem:

I'll be looking or that report, fred.
Years ago when I was in private radio, media "diaries" sometimes fell into the hands of friends of the station. Of course, trying to be helpful, some recorded their listening habits as 24 hours a day only to our station for the duration of the survey \o/
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Dropof Goldensun:

Great voices and instrumentation on this. Pimeyttä kohti
  12:41pm rbrt:

Mayuko interesting! mysteries are fun lol
Avatar 12:43pm fred:

@Sem: I won't pretend to listen 24 hours a day, but I honestly don't listen to any other station, and I don't have TV, so my report should be heavily biased as well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Dropof Goldensun:

I have to say, today's selections are particularly nerdalicious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm coelacanth∅:

many days (probably many hundreds of days, over the years) i've listened to wfmu all day. not in a while though. there're no days now that i like every show on the schedule over a 24 hour period.
anyway i fall asleep with music and i can't trust that a program will start off sleep-inducing but then awaken me later, so i use other sources.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm Doug Schulkind:

Nihilintoxicating as ever, Mayuko!
Avatar 12:51pm fred:

This Nihiloxica track is pretty good too. From Uganda, according to bandcamp. I like that one member is listed as playing cowbell (along with synth, but bear with me)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Hey Mayuko fans, soon she will have company on Saturday afternoons. On January 26th a new program will be joining the stream, airing 2-5pm! (The new show will have some "unofficial" work-out-the-kinks broadcasts earlier in January.) So keep your ears and noses open!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm coelacanth∅:

i carried a corpse into the house for my sister yesterday.
beautiful tree. 'could've grown up to be magnificent.
  12:59pm rbrt:

lot of good music coming out of finland!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm coelacanth∅:

Doug that's great! (...except the terrible fact of Mayuko no longer having the option to flow over 2 hours, but)
looking forward to it
Avatar 1:03pm fred:

A friend of mine contributed a track to that premium (there was a download link with that 7")
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm Dropof Goldensun:

You'll be happy to know I put up a fake tree every year. I could never see the point of chopping a real one down for such a selfish reason.
  1:05pm rbrt:

yayyy tree songs
Avatar 1:12pm Mayuko:

Good afternoon, Henry!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm coelacanth∅:

the only time i ever bought a holiday tree it was alive, with a root ball. after the season was over i planted it in my father's front lawn but it didn't make it.
if i did the same thing now it would make it though.
Avatar 1:17pm Mayuko:

@fred wow, which artist was it?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm tmoyo:

I like how they flip? shift? the tone..
Avatar 1:21pm fred:

Thierry Müller, I think it was under his Ilitch name, but it might have been Ruth
Avatar 1:22pm Mayuko:

@Dropof Yeah! I dunno why it can't be a fake plastic tree (cueing that sad Radiohead song)
  1:25pm Rickwaukee:

Koshigaya - Home of Denny's! https://imgur.com/a/Kqrt23I
  1:25pm rbrt:

I ♡ that radiohead album :(
Avatar 1:25pm fred:

Come to think of it, you might even have met him when he played on the station. Anyway he knows of your work, I've talked about it with him (he's also a recently retired graphic designer)
Avatar 1:27pm Mayuko:

@Rickwaukee Haha! Oh yeah! Not just one but there are (were?) buncha Denny's!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm coelacanth∅:

rbrt i Love all radiohead albums! (although 2 of them i don't like as much)
Avatar 1:34pm Mayuko:

@rbrt Me too! I went to see the Bends tour show in Tokyo and I loved it!!! Fake plastic tree wouldn't be my first pick though, I think Just is my fav track.
  1:34pm Joe B:

@Rickwaukee I've always been curious, are you from my hometown of Milwaukee?
Avatar 1:35pm fred:

@Mayuko: it was as Ilitch, the track was "Under a Weeping Willow"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm tmoyo:

Tomorrow i'm going to see an old friend who works on weekends as a part-time forest worker. I have to ask her if she sings with her co-workers while working in the forest. I guess not with chain saws..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm coelacanth∅:

throughout my childhood we had an old aluminum tree. it was complicated to put together. hundreds of color-coded branches stuck into corresponding holes on a wooden pole. i'm sure my parents made it seem much more difficult than it had to be. we had mostly fragile blown glass ornaments my parents brought back from germany, enough for 2-3 per branch.
it was beautiful! i never stopped marveling at it as the years went on.
Avatar 1:38pm fred:

@tmoyo: maybe there are different worksongs that work with chainsaws. Probably more punk or metal though
  1:38pm rbrt:

I saw them on that tour too!..and I just looked up the date and it was 95!!....holy that feels like so long ago lol
  1:39pm Rickwaukee:

@Joe B: you are correct, sir
  1:39pm rbrt:

prob hard to sing with a chainsaw lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm tmoyo:

@fred haha! yes, that sounds cool!
  1:40pm rbrt:

the trees communicate with each other!
Avatar 1:41pm fred:

@rbrt and tmoyo: Maybe Merzbow would work? Though I'm not sure he'd endorse cutting down trees
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm coelacanth∅:

"Grand Master Doug"
  1:45pm rbrt:

Merzbow would work fred lol
  1:45pm Joe B:

@Rickwaukee Is there a Denny's in Milwaukee? I can't remember.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm tmoyo:

it would definitely work!
  1:50pm Rickwaukee:

@Joe B: None came to mind as I never eat there - but there are 5 in the area - 78th/Capitol, Northridge are closest to me
Avatar 1:51pm Mayuko:

@fred I actually DID meet him!!! Though I still didn't quite understand English much then so I couldn't really communicate with him, sadly. Enjoyed seeing & listening to his session at the station, though.
Avatar 1:53pm Mayuko:

@tmoyo I seem to remember hearing that there are less and less forest workers there and it was becoming an environmental issue. I'm curious to hear what it's like to be a part-time worker!
Avatar 1:57pm Mayuko:

@rbrt it's SO long ago that I had to go to that show with my MOM. Feels like happened in ancient time!!!!!!!!!!
  1:58pm rw:

Wow. Checking back in and just saw that Mayuko saw Merzbow with her mom.
Avatar 1:59pm fred:

Am I the only one to think Mayuko should go overtime each week until the new show takes away that option?
  2:00pm rw:

fred, I'm with you on that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks for the show today, Mayuko. Merry Christmas. Time for me to walk into town for a haircut.
@fred - I agree with that idea.

Mayuko I love that cover! The trees are the best!
  2:06pm rbrt:

♡ these tree soldiers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm tmoyo:

Mayuko, yes some forest have just one species of trees that they planted decades ago and some old trees are getting sick and falling down. My friend works with a NPO that tends the forest and create a healthy environment and create space for new trees to grow in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Dropof Goldensun:

You should do the artwork for Mulchfest! ;)
  2:08pm Rickwaukee:

Instead of going into the forest and chopping down a tree - it wouldn't kill you to rake a little. ;) Happy Chrimbo, Mayuko and All!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Dropof Goldensun:

Have a great week everyone! Great show Mayuko! Merry, Merry , Merry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm tmoyo:

  2:11pm Joe B:

Thanks Mayuko! See everyone next week!
  2:11pm rbrt:

lol I was not expecting this to be the christmas song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Dropof Goldensun:

Mayuko, after seeing your artwork for the cover I will always look at my Christmas tree differently now!
  2:13pm rw:

Thanks once again Mayuko! Have a very merry and hopefully electric Christmas everyone!

I totally forgot to say Merry Christmas or happy holidays or whatever, so saying that here on the comment board!
