Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from February 21, 2019 Options

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

@TDK: Flash has the day off...
Avatar 7:52pm coelacanth∅:

i think Flash is not present but either this is Doug's stream or a "rerun".
Avatar 7:55pm TDK60:

Oh! so this is my first time ever commenting during a "shuffle." ha! The music is good of course but I think I'll go elsewhere...

..one of my fave things about big band is sometimes the drummer gets to wail!
Avatar 8:47pm TDK60:

This isn't listed yet, has to be South African jazz...

Just about now, somebody's mom would say " Don't you kids want to go outside and get some fresh air? All is you do is sit in front of that screen."

Franco, what if this became the way we communicated exclusively?

Avatar 8:57pm Franco Twinkie:

Chresti, I will answer you via the confuser, even though you are in the next room: That would be Crazy!

Bucknor was a Nigerian musician and journalist active during the 1960s and 1970s.
Avatar 9:02pm TDK60:

..are all Drummer shuffle tunes sequenced by Doug Shulkind? Or is some just random?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm chresti:

Wow-
Avatar 9:05pm Franco Twinkie:

African musicians from this period always had some crazy ass keyboards. Was their some sort of alternate universe of electric organs that we were not available to us?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm chresti:

I imagine Doug inputs the tunes and the program shuffles...
Avatar 9:06pm TDK60:

yeah Franco, that organ was very enticing.

Thanks for the link, TDK60

This is fun, first time. // Sundaram Balachander (18 January 1927 – 13 April 1990) was an Indian veena player. He was also an accomplished filmmaker. (Hope this is the same Balachander.)South Indian music = Carnatic music.

chresti, up above, my URL line says show# 84344.
Avatar 9:42pm TDK60:

..since this show doesn't really exist, we're just sonic phantoms; will this comment column be saved somehow? Or is our fading into the mists okay?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm chresti:

That's Explorers Room
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm chresti:

Gee- don't know, could be...
Avatar 9:44pm TDK60:

I'm guessing this is Haitian or Martinique?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm chresti:

Probably, if there isn't a tracklist
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm chresti:

Sun Ra-State Street
Avatar 9:46pm TDK60:

..that tune didn't appear on the list. Now it says Sun Ra - State Street. Can anyone name the album?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm fleep:

The show page gets closed by the DJ manually, I think, so the opposite might happen. We might be here ... forever
Avatar 9:48pm TDK60:

oh my word...I can't go to sleep soon?!

Only Little Danny can save us!

Time to move! wfmu.org...

Little Miss Janice is a mystery. What little is know about her is that she came from Texas, she played guitar and she had a knack for songwriting.
