@Ursula I can't seem to find the original email that had all the info about it. But I can send you who to email at WFMU about it. If any of the other Sheena Djs are reading this and have that email I'm talking about -- send it over or post on fb?

oh yeeeeh always super luv this track surprised it's not yet showed up in some hip show like the end of the fuckin' world
Avatar 1:23pm Martinibomb:

anyone know how you get the job picking music for movies.. that always seemed like a good gig
Avatar 1:24pm Ursula1000:

music supervisor---odd animal
Avatar 1:26pm Sem:

Pentangle summoned me here. Good day, U1K, and spectacular sounders.
Any whales here, btw?
Avatar 1:26pm Martinibomb:

I was watching end of the effing world last night and of course it's got all these great picks and uses a ton o music - how do u get that gig? hah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Rich in Washington:

That's always been my dream job. Musical director or consultant to a movie or TV show, etc.
Mind you, it'd probably be pretty odd and I'd probably get fired.
Avatar 1:29pm Ursula1000:

it's probably people who were in the licensing world via a publishing company and wormed their way into it.
Avatar 1:32pm Martinibomb:

Now I wanna write a chris morris style show about a music director on a tv show or movie maybe a comic book. played by Matt Berry of course
Avatar 1:33pm Ursula1000:

IFC has been showing reruns of Toast of London. So good! Yes I can hear you Clem Fandango!
  1:33pm ARB:

I think the job has much more to do with licensing and editing than selecting, I've looked into it here also. My dream job too! I sold my spare lap steel on Craigslist to a woman who runs a film tv music editing company and when she picked up the guitar i picked her brain about it.
  1:34pm ARB:

Power and wifi got cut in my neighborhood but I'm listening out of my phone at least
  1:34pm ARB:

*music supervisor company not editing
Avatar 1:36pm Mr Fab:

This late '60s/early '70s hippie noize is the pre-metal they used to call "acid rock" back then. I think it was Rich who remembered that older folks used to use that term for any loud hard rock, usually in pretty disparaging terms. Did 'the kids' actually use the term acid-rock?
Avatar 1:36pm Ursula1000:

I get these briefings every other day from my digital distributor for tracks people are looking to license and at least 80% of them are looking for covers of popular songs or like somber melancholic versions of 80s songs! haha Its so dumb. Licensing has got super lazy in the past like 6 years or so. Not adventurous at all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Rich in Washington:

I love Matt Berry. Also Chris Morris.
Avatar 1:37pm Ursula1000:

@mr fab proto metal! haha
Avatar 1:38pm Martinibomb:

with music in film/tv I wonder how long till we get away from using the Rolling Stones for so much.. and there are certain songs that are just so cliche that they've been using for like 40+ years u all know what I mean
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39pm Rich in Washington:

My job sometimes has me listening to production music for video production and sometimes I get solicitations from production houses - and by houses, I mean the home of some guy named Sergei in Ukraine.
Avatar 1:39pm Mr Fab:

"somber melancholic versions of 80s songs! haha Its so dumb." Oi, so many shows use these, sung by female singers I've heard called "waifs" since so they all sound so weak and sad. Some really ludicrous '80s covers out there, almost unrecognizable at time.
Avatar 1:39pm Martinibomb:

plus with film/tv they use placeholder music so like Ursula is saying they want you to kinda cover these songs/ghost them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Rich in Washington:

Yeah, certain songs are obligatory. Especially sixties songs. The Forrest Gump soundtrack being a great example of a really unimaginative selection.
Avatar 1:40pm Martinibomb:

Exactly!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Rich in Washington:

But it's sort of like impossible to have one of those fifties inspired retro diners without a picture of Elvis, Marilyn, James Dean, ad nauseum.
Avatar 1:41pm Ursula1000:

I "almost" attempted a melancholic version of Bananarama's Cruel Summer but I just couldn't do it! Too ridiculous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Rich in Washington:

Mad Men was sort of clever in its musical choices without going really deep or outre.
  1:42pm ARB:

Never heard "waifs" used that way but i get it. I've always lumped it in to "cry baby" music but cry baby is men too. Now I can use waif wave
Avatar 1:43pm Martinibomb:

this song is super fave
Avatar 1:44pm Ursula1000:

sounds like it could Carrie Nations!
Avatar 1:44pm Ursula1000:

could be
Avatar 1:46pm Mr Fab:

you are to be commended U1K for not making more waif-wave (heh, gotta use that term now)
Avatar 1:47pm Ursula1000:

I was actually gonna use my pal Puddles Pity Party on it!
Avatar 1:51pm Mr Fab:

Hey, who knew Bette Midler had a nice drum break on one of her records?
Avatar 1:51pm Ursula1000:

that break is bonkers! Soooooo funky
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Rich in Washington:

OMG! I was JUST LITERALLY THINKING ABOUT THIS SONG!
  1:52pm Domenic:

"U1K" Like that! thanks for the program. Getting me to listen to something new and different... I only "trust" certain DJs...
Avatar 1:52pm Ursula1000:

haha it's one of my powers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Jan Turkenburg:

Yes!!! I knew it. This episode can't do without Shocking Blue's Mariska Veres!
Avatar 1:53pm Ursula1000:

Mariska rocks
Avatar 1:55pm Martinibomb:

almost over.. if only you'd expanded to two hours! We'd only be half way thru the show. And by the way... I think 2 hrs is the perfect amount of time for a radio show.
Avatar 1:55pm Ursula1000:

would you say that this Joni track is Acid Folk?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm chresti:

Love Buzz is great.
Avatar 1:56pm Martinibomb:

yeh I love Love Buzz.. Love love love
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

i can't keep up with these comments because i am laughing and crying so hard
Avatar 1:57pm Martinibomb:

acid = drone? it has that kind of texture to it
Avatar 1:57pm Sem:

Crosby wanted Mitchell to sound pure and natural, so he asked her to sing into the studio grand piano, and set up extra microphones to capture her voice reverberating off the strings; unfortunately the set-up captured too much ambient noise, resulting in excessive tape hiss, which could only be removed post-production at the cost of the high sounds in the audio range, which gives the album a flat feel
  1:57pm Domenic:

One hour shows are nice... leave them wanting more....
Avatar 1:57pm Ursula1000:

would luv to cover this inna shoegaze way
Avatar 1:58pm Martinibomb:

to me that's the texture many *acid* songs have in common
Avatar 1:58pm Martinibomb:

yeh shoegaze exactly! yep totally wut I mean
Avatar 1:58pm Ursula1000:

yeah drone=yum
Avatar 1:58pm Mr Fab:

YOU KIDS AND YOUR "ACID-ROCK"!
Avatar 1:58pm Ursula1000:

thanks 4 tuning in everyone!
Avatar 1:59pm Mr Fab:

And now to check out all the songs I clicky-starred. Thanks again, sir! Dig the stream til tomorrow.
