Little Danny's avatar View Little Danny's profile Options

Postwar atmospherica. High bop modernism and Afro-Latin sounds, twilight exotica and soundtrack moods, soul stompers and weepers, hypnotic R&B and blues, mystical '60s pop, lonely country, lonelier rock 'n' roll, instrumental weirdness, electronic creaking. Bringing worlds beyond into the worlds at hand.

They launched a mobile version of the site. I may or may not stick with it. Hi Danny and everyone.

WR, ParUbi, doc: Good people!

I know the flip more Danny Exodus. Heard it in Belgium 20+ years ago
Avatar 10:13pm Little Danny:

Awesome that you remember that, Matt! Yes, it's definitely a crossover from the Belgian popcorn world
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm doctorjazz:

What a great 45 (the Benny Green)!
Avatar 10:14pm Little Danny:

@Doug: I love "blue flamingos"! That may very well stick
Avatar 10:15pm Little Danny:

@doc: There's an LP, too. I've never heard it, but it's a jazz cheapie if I recall right. Bethlehem Records. Quite obscure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Matt from New Orleans:

The LP is solid
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Matt from New Orleans:

A Babs double feature as he wrote the prior tune

It’s a good start

Hi Kris
Avatar 10:26pm Little Danny:

Y'all should use the FMU app rather than the mobile version of the website. It's great.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm doctorjazz:

I never liked using the app on my Android phone...not as flexible, and I think sound is slightly better using the home page.
Avatar 10:36pm Flash Strap:

adore this Aggie Dukes
Avatar 10:38pm Little Danny:

It's so good, Evan. She has an even more obscure 45 from this same time entitled "John John" that's worth seeking out.
Avatar 10:38pm Flash Strap:

will do
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm doctorjazz:

Matt, thanks for the link, some reasonable reissue versions of the LP there, ordered one (and my wife thanks you for enabling me to bring more vinyl into the house...)

@Matt: Can you pass along any details about the bugs you're experiencing? Email kenzo at wfmu.org , or fill out this form: wfmu.org... Thank you!

No worries Doc
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Matt from New Orleans:

I will Ken
Avatar 10:53pm Little Danny:

Thanks Matt. And my apologies to Bebo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm doctorjazz:

I'm finding that the little button that lets you toggle between the songs and the comments doesn't always appear, have to refresh the web page (on my Android phone)
Avatar 10:55pm coelacanth∅:

this song (more the style but a little bit the voice too) reminds me of Katell Keineg
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm WR:

I use the app for listening and the site on android / chrome for the playlist. And which tune did Bebo Valdez write?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm chresti:

That happens on my phone when there's spotty cellular reception@doc
Avatar 10:56pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@doctorjazz: If you could provide more detail, including version of your OS, what browser and version, and even a screenshot, that could help track it down. Email kenzo at wfmu.org

Sorry, Valdés

@WR Con Poco Coco
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm WR:

And that first set was fairly amazing for my tastes.
Avatar 11:00pm Little Danny:

Thank WR! You have good tastes, but we knew that already!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Never heard this Jackson C Frank cover.
Avatar 11:03pm Little Danny:

I was confusing it with Diz's "Con Alma"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Doug Schulkind:

Searching for info, I came upon this line in Wikipedia: "'My Name is Carnival' appeared in the film Joker. The protagonist, Arthur Fleck, specifically mentions the song as Fleck calls his clown persona 'Carnival'."

I have no idea what it means, but still. Hmmm.
Avatar 11:04pm Little Danny:

And I didn't know it was a cover. Thanks Doug? Similar vibe to the original? I.e., stark and spooky?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm Doug Schulkind:

The original (titled "My Name Is Carnival") is also dark and moody.
Avatar 11:09pm Little Danny:

@Doug: Thanks, I clearly have some post-show threads to follow up on, then
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Matt from New Orleans:

Ken I sent an email
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Doug Schulkind:

Jackson C Frank:

"The horrible-but-true story of Jackson C. Frank is a nearly unendurable tale of bad luck, heartbreak and illness. The only balm is wallowing in Frank's tunes of incandescent melancholia. The survivor of a Buffalo schoolhouse fire that killed most of his classmates, Frank took up guitar during his long hospitalization. A decade later he would head to London and become, for a tragically short stretch, the golden boy of the Soho folk set."
Avatar 11:12pm Little Danny:

I would be curious to hear from other DJs their post-show routines. I always come away with a list of trails to follow up on. And sometimes I do, in an OCD haze.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Doug Schulkind:

I'm downloading Cornufolkia right now, thanks to you. Thanks to you!
Avatar 11:16pm Little Danny:

Heeeyyyy New Zealand
Avatar 11:17pm Little Danny:

It's a very good comp, Doug. Lotsa tracks with a similar spooky vibe, lotsa obscurites
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Doug Schulkind:

I'm drooling over it now. Never seen it before. Delighted to have been led to it by the CBF.
Avatar 11:20pm Kris Holmes:

Aka the best Zealand
Avatar 11:21pm Little Danny:

I've the downloaded version, too Doug. Not sure if the actual CDs come with liners. I *believe* it's a bootleg/unlicensed affair
Avatar 11:22pm Little Danny:

There's great video of the Clean doing "Oddity" here: www.youtube.com...
Avatar 11:24pm Little Danny:

Is there an OG Zealand that preceded, Kris?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm WR:

OMG Jackson C Frank wikipedia page, how did I not know of this guy before....
Avatar 11:26pm Kris Holmes:

Yeah, in the Netherlands
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm doctorjazz:

OK, sent Kenzo an email, going to listen from bed now, thanks, Danny, much fun (as usual). Night all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm Matt from New Orleans:

Except it’s spelled Zeeland and there’s a Danish island called Zealand that is part of Copenhagen. Confusing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm Doug Schulkind:

Gotta hit the sack for some pre-show beauty rest. Tomorrow morning's edition of Give the Drummer Some will be an all music bed show. All the sounds you wish you could hear when the annoying DJ is flapping his lips.

I'll be here in 9.5 hours: wfmu.org...

New Zealand was sighted by a Dutchman Tasman who had an Australian Island named after him
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm Doug Schulkind:

@Danny
Sending you something to fuel your OCD haze. Look for a download link in your email. I'll catch the last 25 minutes in bed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m putting my phone down and will listen out. Have a great night everyone.
Avatar 11:39pm Little Danny:

Will do, thanks Doug!

Thanks Matt, g'night

Late arrival. Gotta listen to this show as soon as it's up on the archives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm WR:

Regarding you previous question about follow up after a program. I have 60 pages open in chrome on my phone and at least 57 of them are links or movie or artist from a WFMU program that I have yet to follow up to see if I can get copy of media or finish reading about the artist, etc. Never ending and I love it.
