Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

Harmony Joy Ride time.

Good morning. It's Armenia's Labor Day today so I won't be on the boards much but always listening.

Darren maintains this high level of high jinx, horseplay and braggadocio because he's playing the long game; one day he will deliver a deft message of such serene and incandescent Universal wisdom that it'll kick start a chain of events that light the touch paper on eternal World Peace.

I'll pronounce Maryland properly when you pronounce the 'H' in herbs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14am fred:

Good morning Darren and all. It's Labor Day here too, as in many non-US countries (which makes sense as it's related to a part of US history)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:17am VincentNifigance:

Happy May Day, Fred. and everyone, I hadn't realised we'd escaped April.

Morning all.

Joining you all for the next few hours while I work on pottery in my living room. Giddy up.

nice perfect early morning music

@B/Wad Good news, it isn't Monday! More good news: This is Darren's show! Better news, you're closer to the weekend than you thought!
  4:56am b wad:

You don’t say!
My player must be glitching.
Hi Darren & Crew!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58am Darren:

To be fair my last set definitely had a Polyglotting vibe
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:09am VincentNifigance:

'Phaedra' is the Tangerine Dream record with 'Movements of a Visionary' on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09am DMcK:

Day off tomorrow, but work to do anyway and my cat wrote a heiroglyphic message to me so life goes on and you've been perfect for the mood so far, darren
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09am fred:

Darren and Jesse both have great 3-6am shows that feature good music I hadn't heard before, and use the same playlist color scheme. I can see how one can get confused
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:10am VincentNifigance:

=Absolutely it is.
Avatar 5:16am Davee:

Hello there Darren
  5:16am David in London:

When I was a young thing I always used to the think the lyric in ‘Third Uncle’ referred to “Bugs Bunny shoes”. I was very disappointed when I later found out it was “...books, burn his shoes...”
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:24am VincentNifigance:

@DavidInLondon: I think I thought that too. I wish it was Bugs Bunny Shoes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24am Cmurtha:

All the 3-6 AM shows are great, and I will be sad when I go back to the states and won't hear them live anymore.
Avatar 5:26am Shea:

Gotta love The dB's.
  5:29am David in London:

@vince, ha ha, glad you were on the same wave length. I might write a song about Bugs Bunny shoes to make it a reality.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:32am VincentNifigance:

@DavidInLondon: That's the best thing about misheard lyrics, they're better than the originals and they're all yours!
  5:33am David in London:

@cmurtha, yeah, it’s one of the best and wildest slots on Woof Moo I reckon. It’s funny how if listening live, one’s experience of the station is vastly different depending on one’s respective time zone. Being in Europe, many of the 3-6am shows (eg Stan’s Show) are quintessential FMU, but probably most in North America aren’t even awake to hear them. Except Sem.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:35am VincentNifigance:

@Cmurtha They give a great complexion to my mornings, I get that lonely-DJ-in-the night-vibe, but I would love to hear them in the wee small hours. Downside is I miss a lot of nighttime (EST) stuff though.
Avatar 5:36am Sem:

Good morning, Darren and Darrenites.
Overnight 'FMU, gotta like it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37am Kevin-san:

Enjoying this whole show, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39am fred:

One thing I love/hate about this slot is the high turnover (except Stan, of course). It means shows I came to love move to less grueling slots that are out of my listening hours, but it also means new shows to replace them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46am fred:

That Brigitte Fontaine/Areski song has maybe my favorite French lyrics
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:46am VincentNifigance:

@Fred what are they singing/talking about?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53am fred:

@VincentNifigance: The story is that there's a gas leak explosion at the floor below them, the building catches fires and burns down quickly because it was made of cheap material because it houses immigrants and poor people, and they fall to their death. At each step, Brigitte asks about something she hears, smells or hears, and Areski explains things like explosions, combustion, gravity, and the effects of hitting the ground in scientific terms, ending with "c'est normal"
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:56am VincentNifigance:

@Fred Wow, what subject matter juxtaposed with such a breezy melody!

You may walk along Darren, but you got us
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:58am VincentNifigance:

@DaybreakTheCrashedRacer: Darren POWER WALKS among us!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00am fred:

Thanks Darren!
  6:00am Daybreak, the Crashed Racer :):

That gave me a smile Vincent. I hope you all were able to give one to him, or maybe he was smiling all the while.
Avatar 6:01am DanandPat:

Good morning Pidge and Glisteners every where. We're here Glistening in beautiful Callicoon, N.Y. This is the way to wake and bake baby!! Have a great day everyone!!
