Hi Kurt. You got me with the Scott Walker track. Great music so far. I am in....

Good Morning Freeform Freedom Fighters!

  9:21am Listener Robert:

Looks like for decades I've had the name of "Brontosaurus Stomp" wrong. Searching turns up a bunch of "Godzilla Stomp", including one by the Go-Gos, but not the same one. Thanks for straightening me out.

we're in this together, andrewc. we're in the circles together. don't you worry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40am Mick:

Good morning Kurt and all - good to hear you here! The Camus epigraph is extra apt as Jan 4 was the day he died in 1960.
Avatar 9:41am Kurt Gottschalk:

ah, thanks for the update, mick!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43am steveo:

Kurt -- yeah, Love is fun. I think most of my disappointment at the time was that it was being heralded as along the lines of Danger Mouse's Grey Album, which I found to be very creative & fun.
Avatar 9:46am Kurt Gottschalk:

oh god, i forgot about the confluence of those two records. yeah, 'love' was not worth the hype. that's why i try to wait at least a decade after an album's release before i pick it up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54am Jay Goges:

Regarding Philip Glass... my coworkers are about to murder me... makes me want to turn it up louder :-)

@jake i went the moma a week or two ago and THAT SNOWMAN IS STILL OUT THERE
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09am steveo:

it's better art when the outside temperature is below freezing, IMO. (for people who don't know what i'm talking about, it's outdoors, but inside a freezer with a glass door)
Avatar 10:14am Kurt Gottschalk:

heya jake
steveo, i saw that snowman last summer (didn't i?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16am steveo:

i don't know! i'm trying to get my family to go see the Beasley cotton gin sound thing at the whitney this weekend....

Really enjoying this set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34am Mick:

The F & W snowman was def in the MoMA garden last summer - I like how its 'meaning' changes with the seasons. @steveo, what's the deal with the Beasley sound installation when there is not a performance happening?

Hiya KG!

So, the Katyń monument in JC is not going to move I read....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41am steveo:

@Mick Yes, the meaning changes, that's a good way to put it.

I assume there's something running all the time with the Beasley, but I'm trying to find out as little as possible about it.

WN: Yay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41am steveo:

is your polish wife the same person as kurt's?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43am Stanley:

Ella Fitzgerald is being played on both streams right now

Ella should be scatting this instead.

Huge fan of the stuff that came before The Dreaming (less so, the latter) but this one was a lifetime-achievement mega thing.
