Hello fellow listeners
  5:04pm LaVa LaTweme:

Hot track!!
  5:04pm John from Florham park:

Real jamming track

What everyone else said....
  5:07pm John from Florham park:

@NGH how is your packing going
  5:08pm phat:

I love Jeffrey I Hear You
  5:09pm Bob in DC and/or Virginia:

Hey there Therese and fellow Therese enthusiasts!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Therese:

Hi everyone!
  5:13pm phat:

This set is, once again, hitting the spot
Avatar 5:16pm northguineahills:

Moving while it's pouring rain, I suppose it's fun as long as Therese (well, WFMU in general, as I've been doing it since dawn solo) provides the soundtrack.
  5:22pm LaVa LaTweme:

  5:26pm John from Florham park:

@NGH good luck with all that packing guy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Therese:

@NGH- moving is the WORST. And in bad weather is the WORSTEST. Good luck...
  5:36pm Impboy:

Wow. I haven't heard this track since this album came out in the '90s. I interviewed Towa. He went into this disconsolate rant about climate change and what his kids were going to face in the future. I still think about those words to this day - quite a bit, actually.
Avatar 5:36pm northguineahills:

I'm going to try to slowly move my record shelves in his pickup to his loft space. At least it's less then a mile, and we can take the residential circuitous route.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm coelacanth∅:

moving records is the worst thing, in my opinion. heavy and fragile and important.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm coelacanth∅:

one year i moved 5 times. i had probably not much more than 1000 at the time, at least.

I saw a monarch today in philly. Got the milkweed ready to go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm coelacanth∅:

i've seen many more fireflies this year than i have in many years. more dragonflies too. both very good things.
...more butterflies than last year at this time, including monarchs and beautiful mostly black ones; i didn't think of it as bad.
Avatar 5:44pm northguineahills:

I planted some milkweed in Feb, and have gotten some monarchs as of the last two weeks (I'm in FL).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm coelacanth∅:

...but yes we are in "end times". that was "our" choice.
Avatar 5:47pm northguineahills:

@coel: I'm powered by my early beer, I know I'll be in pain later. I got all of my recs, save maybe 700, in my Subaru. I just need to drive slow so the load doesn't shift. I'll let you know on the next shift! Salud, amigos!
  5:49pm Dan from Delco:

Lots of fireflies this year too. I remember seeing them into October last year.
Avatar 5:49pm RobinSays:

I've heard there's a lot of dragonflies in lower Manhattan lately (I saw a smooshed one in Brooklyn the other day).Thanx for playing Eddy Senay! I'd never heard of him before. He's really good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm coelacanth∅:

good luck ngh! ...really slow, because this is the opportunity for some dipshit to cut you off or something.
Avatar 5:53pm northguineahills:

@coel: taking the residential circuitous route, very slowly, where there will be no traffic, for just that reason.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Therese:

@Impboy- makes sense. I remember Deee-lite being one of the first acts to move away from plastic packaging.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm coelacanth∅:

i'm still trying to figure out how cutting down more trees for paper bags is better for the ecology/climate than drilling for oil.
...anyway at least -about 40 years too late and an infinite number of years after the more civilized countries - states in the us are requiring stores to charge $ for bags.

You know when some chad asshole is protecting the spare window seat and holding onto the seat as if to block the way through- I hate that

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm chresti:

..I think, @Robin
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Franco Twinkie:

Marquee Moon still sounds as jarring as it did when it came out in 1977. Does that weirdly qualify it as a "Classic?"
Avatar 6:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Franco - makes it as good as anything.
Avatar 6:28pm JIMD2019:

My only regret is that I listened to it too much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Franco Twinkie:

RR, I will accept that as classic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Franco Twinkie:

JIMD, I too ground the shit out that record, but hearing in come out computer changes the context somehow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm chresti:

this reminds me of when 6 was 9, a little bit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm chresti:

@Mexico City Blondes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Franco Twinkie:

The name of that last band makes me think of Sylvia Pinal, the great Mexican actress who made more that a few Luis Bunuel movies so compelling.
  6:41pm KP in DC:

Hello there, Therese
  6:44pm phat:

I'm way behind now! got a call from the best drummer in America and it paused the stream.
Avatar 6:49pm Joe B:

Hi Therese, yup doing both shows
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Therese:

@Joe B you are HEROIC!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Franco Twinkie:

Therese, so you're on this spooky guitar trip today? Great!
  6:59pm pp:

what a string of tunes .. love is the answer
  7:06pm Dan from Delco:

I learned of band called Witch Vomit today. That’s gotta he spooky music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Franco Twinkie:

Crystal Blue Persuasion is the song that marks the moment when the cholos went hippie where I come from.
Avatar 7:08pm northguineahills:

Ok, moved my recs to my friend's loft, and my car battery die. after 30 mins, got it working again, and then we tried to move one of my record shelves to his truck, and it broke apart. This is the universe saying, "fuck you", because of reasons. Off to Lowes to see if we resuscitate my shelf somehow. I need a drink (sorry, I'm not usually so stressed).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Franco Twinkie:

Take it slow, NGH. It's be over soon.
Avatar 7:11pm northguineahills:

Dropped a '78, and it didn't break, first not-negative thing to happen to me today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Therese:

A sign that things are turning around, @NGH.
  7:22pm tak:

therese was about to say she also loves Precious Find (1996)
rip mad dog
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Therese:

Close, @tak. I was going to mention the film version of Buffy, the Vampire Slayer.
  7:23pm JakeGould:

R.I.P. Rutger Hauer. He actually rewrote that speech too better fit his understanding of a replicants mind. ‘The two lines Hauer kept from the original draft of the speech were “attack ships” and “C-beams.” Hauer believed the original speech was written in a way that was too operatic, a tone he felt a replicant would never use.’ www.indiewire.com...
  7:25pm JakeGould:

It makes sense: Simple minded, emotionally aware and conscious of mortality and its experiences.

Also, there are some great online discussions about what life in those “Off World Colonies” might be like. The general conclusion is it has to all be a hells cape if there are so many replicants deployed there to keep societies afloat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm chresti:

Cardboard boxes@ngh?
  7:25pm tak:

wew thanks for the reminder, totally forgot how funny he is in that one
Avatar 7:33pm northguineahills:

Everything music related is moved but my shelves, chresti, my friend went to Lowes to get supplies to fix the one the broke down. I hired Russian movers in Brooklyn, to move my stuff in FL, and it cost me $2K, and they broke my CD and record shelves, so, I had to cobble them back together. So, now, hanging on by dawls and glue, one just shattered.

Is Gauche a current act? Very nice.
  7:42pm Dan from Delco:

RIP Rutger Hauer indeed. The plot of Blind Fury makes me consider it one of the greatest movies ever. I need to see it.
  7:51pm Peter from Dover NJ:

Great set tonight.
  7:51pm pp:

as long as on the theme, that Chris Stamey track reminded of H&O's August Day

Thanks, everyone! Stay tuned for Bill Mac...
