oh, you know, being shut in, listening to sounds, vibing. how's everybody out in radio-land?

@JakeGould: Thanks. And I suppose you do remember the account of our former governor hoisting his glass and toasting: "Molotov!"
  9:14pm JakeGould:

FWIW — since some people here might remember him from his appearances on Dave Hill’s show that was in this slot — Dennis Driscoll passed away. He was a poet from Inwood who wrote about his ups/downs with drugs and just life back in the day. R.I.P. Dennis. www.instagram.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm jj.:

ugh, how sad.
  9:26pm JakeGould:

Here’s an early (circa 2015) Dave Hill show with Dennis D. as a guest: wfmu.org...
  9:37pm cvh:

that William Onyeabor track was great

Coming in late after a 2 hour power outage...gave the regular stuck at home situation some perspective

Loved the Weckerman track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm jj.:

dave's playing all the instruments on that! he was selling remaining copies of the 7-inch at the WFMU record fair a few years back!
  9:42pm P-90:

Dennis?! I’m speechless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Jeezy:

The music and vibe is uniformly brilliant but my ONE complaint with the Frow show remains... Would it kill ya to put in a little effort for the theme song jingle?! :-P
PS: yeah my Brooklyn hood is weirdly quiet too...
  9:59pm Bradley:

Sorry to hear about Dennis RIP...I hear you about noisy neighbors. Right now the guy who lives in the apartment next to me is clomping around (sounds like he's dancing or jumping rope??) and laughing loudly. Glad he's enjoying himself but hearing this around twice a day every day, and sometimes waking up to it is definitely a challenge!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm Jeezy:

Also... this is like the third of this weird new-era days since college where I feel a lil under the weather from too much weed and alkeehol combined... At least it's not 10:45am on a Tuesday like last time!

Bahahaha... that was sarcastic, Jesse!!! The point I failed to make was it's awesome hence the sarcasm! Sorry, my drug and alcohol veil is probably not helping my articulation... :-/
Avatar 10:04pm hairyhood:

The jingle is the only reason I tune in, not even sure what all this other noise is
  10:04pm Bradley:

At least Cuomo is better than Trump? Don't live in New York so don't know much about Cuomo but watched a little of one of his briefings and at least he's mentioning facts. I'm half-melted ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm muckgeist:

not usually much of a commenter, butt...I LOVE THE JINGLE SO MUCH. Your show is fantastic, Jesse. Thanks for doing what you do.
  10:07pm Bradley:

Yes, thank you Jesse and Scott!

better sure, but i'm still never voting for him if i can help it.
  10:10pm JakeGould:

@Jesse: Regarding the quiet of the world, you know there are some street musicians who still play in the empty subway stations?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm jj.:

AND THANK YOU FOR ALL THE JINGLE LOVE!! I WILL SHOUT! for those who want variation, seek out the frow show 20th anniversary special, in which the artist behind the theme jingle attempts it live on accordion. wfmu.org...
  10:13pm Carmichael:

I like Gavin Newsom, because he is really stepping up his game and not playing politics. He actually surprised me; I didn’t want to like him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm jj.:

no, i didn't know there were still subway musicians playing. is that beatles dude still at 7th ave/14th street? he's there regularly since at least 2001, if not longer.
  10:14pm P-90:

The “Beatles Dude”!
  10:16pm Bradley:

@Carmichael, yeah, I live in California and feel the same way.
Avatar 10:21pm TDK60:

Must be tough out there now, busking. Perilous, also less people.
  10:22pm JakeGould:

@jj.: Didn’t see him. Will explore the whole 14th Street L line world in a few days; gotta make projects like that to get me out and keep me sane.

But for perspective, I got onto the subway ion the 16th Street entrance to Union Square… Utterly dead and no people… But waaaaaay on the other end of the station — essentially around 14th Street — was an electric jazz guitarist playing and I could hear him fine. Those stations really carry sound when nobody is there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm sarahpaol:

hey jj you've capturing the ambiance of the empty city at night. excellent soundtrack my dude
  10:24pm Carmichael:

I took my daughter to the airport on Saturday. We were the only people there. In the whole airport. Post apocalyptic...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm jj.:

this twitter account is keeping track of various city-related sound projects, not just nyc: twitter.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm JohnEBGood:

jj The jingle rules. Bessie's Honky Tonk Radio Girl is my favorite. I recorded my version of it strumming my Dobro. She's looking forward to hear it. Your jingle is cool. Peace and love to all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm jj.:

for the record, i've also solicited on the air for people to do their own versions of the jingle. if people wanna submit some, i'd probably play them, so long as they were recognizable as *thee* frow show theme.
  10:27pm Carmichael:

Listening deeply.
  10:28pm Bradley:

@Carmichael, the airports in California are still open? I was actually trying to find that out yesterday.
  10:30pm Carmichael:

Sacramento Intergalactic is open, but no one dares fly.
  10:30pm Bradley:

Thanks, I hope your daughter stays safe and well.
  10:32pm Bradley:

Love this Pauline Oliveros and Stuart Dempster live recording...saw them as a duo a couple of times.
  10:32pm Carmichael:

Thanks, she’s in Portland now, sheltering in hipster place.

I just listened to Ken Freedman's interview on radio survivor. He mentioned people using audacity to record youtube.
If anyone at fmu is interested there is a program called youtube-dl that is is very good at extracting audio from videos..
its a command line tool, so it might not be for everyone..
here is someone's instructions for using in one windows
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Crudbringer:

gute Nacht meinen Nachttieren.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Crudbringer:

also, yes - youtube-dl is the line-in of Youtube. Using Audacity is holding your tape recorder up to the speaker and trying not to sneeze.

The last time I heard someone who said “Cash is obsolete…” it was this woman who I know lives in a multi-million dollar Brownstone in the heart of Park Slope… Well, I lied… she said “Why do we need money anyway?”
