Avatar 9:03pm sgtpeepaw:

Checking in from Great Barrington, MA. Hope everyone is doing well. Thanks for playing some sounds, jesse!
Avatar 9:05pm John Purcell:

Listening in North Hollywood, CA. Very excited to hear some new sounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm jj.:

good evenin' both, happy to have you here for the new weird jams. and the old ones, too. and maybe some in between ones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm jj.:

much love as always to skeleton scott williams, keeping the board aglow back home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm ashestoashes:

The Vermont frogs and peepers blend with this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm jj.:

that sounds just lovely. we haven't hit chirping season outside studio J yet, but i imagine that'll be coming soon.
Avatar 9:17pm slugluv1313:

good evening, Jesse and everyone!
yes, gorgeous sounds
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm BLCKDGRD:

Normally don't get to listen Monday nights so now I am thanks, shows archived have been great, thank you much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm ashestoashes:

Hey peepaw, haven't been to Great Barrington since the pandemic but miss it. Hope the giant shrub letters are doing well and your beautiful Mahaiwe. WFMU in the Berkshires and the Green Mountains and everywhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm jj.:

sweet, welcome to the live zone @BLCKDGRD! thanks for listening on the archive, too.
Avatar 9:21pm sgtpeepaw:

Ha! The shrub letters are alive and well. Hoping the arts will once again be performed sometime soon! Hope Vermont is holding up just fine. Been a minute since I've been up there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm jj.:

is somebody still trimming the shrub letters or are they shaggy like everybody else?
Avatar 9:23pm sgtpeepaw:

You know.. I don't know. As far as legibility goes, "GB" still reads! As for myself, well, that's another story..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm ashestoashes:

the trimmers of the shrub letters are essential workers.
Avatar 9:25pm sgtpeepaw:

when will the letters "WFMU" or "FROW" be grown in giant shrubbery?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Rory:

Great track here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm ashestoashes:

Come to think of it, has anyone ever seen the letters being trimmed? Ever?
Avatar 9:26pm John Purcell:

Jesse, you ever listen to LSD March? Some of this track reminds me of them. You might dig.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm ashestoashes:

WFMU Shrubbery. That is brilliant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm jj.:

i think we need shrub to carve before there can be frow or WFMU shrubbery. maybe some day i'll do a series of frow chia-heads as a marathon premium & they can be carved into the letters of your choosing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm jj.:

@John - yeah, i dig LSD March! been a while since i played any on the show. probably won't be tonight, but great call.
Avatar 9:28pm sgtpeepaw:

chia, the forgotten head species
  9:29pm Chris H:

Ayo, sweet jamz
Avatar 9:30pm John Purcell:

Avatar 9:31pm John Purcell:

(supposed to be a thumbs up)
Avatar 9:37pm sgtpeepaw:

seriously enjoying the rhythm section here, will definitely listen to the rest of this session later!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38pm jj.:

it helps when the whole band is a rhythm section!
Avatar 9:38pm sgtpeepaw:

fair enough! haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hey there, Frows and Frowlines.

sweet LoFi goodness in this set
Avatar 10:11pm John Purcell:

Oh damn this is good
Avatar 10:13pm slugluv1313:

ahhhhhh more sweet grooves from Sahel Sounds :)
Avatar 10:18pm sgtpeepaw:

woo! could listen to this one forever
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm Matt Fiveash:

That Amaria Hamadalher, wow! Sahel Sounds may be the Stax/Volt label for this century: guaranteed to be Pretty Good at the very least, sight unseen. Hello Jesse!
  10:19pm JakeGould:

Is the Frow line like the Mendoza line?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Chop Scott:

Enjoying the show Jesse--Cheers to you & Brother Scott W.!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm robbo in sydney:

wow the Jacken Elswyth song - love it
Avatar 10:25pm slugluv1313:

@ Matt -- right??
first learned of Sahel Sounds via Mdou Moctar's music, and ever since, EVERYTHING i have heard from the label has been freakin' awesome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm jj.:

hey matt! yeah, sahel sounds is the real deal. these "music for saharan whatsapp" EPs are self-combusting, too, deleted from bandcamp after 30 days or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Rory:

Love that cosmic lap steel sound! Great stuff!
Avatar 10:38pm John Purcell:

Jesse, what's a good music documentary you've liked lately?
  10:38pm JakeGould:

@Rory: How was Memorial Day in the S.F. Bay?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm jj.:

@john - tbh, my head hasn't really been in a movie-watching space of late, but i will note that there's lot of music docs available to rent to help support WFMU! wfmu.org...
Avatar 10:42pm John Purcell:

@Jesse Thanks for the heads-up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm Rory:

@Jake: I’m from St.Louis. My Memorial Day was boring I just stayed in. Reading and watching movies.
  10:49pm JakeGould:

@Rory: Oh! Mixed you up with someone else. Hope it was all cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Rory:

@Jake: Thanks! Yours good?
  10:56pm JakeGould:

@Rory: Mind was fine. Back to getting afternoon naps again which helps.
Avatar 11:01pm sgtpeepaw:

Have never heard a version where she addresses the crowd! how cool! Long live elizabeth cotten
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm Scott Williams:

Evie Sands too! Cotten-picking, how'd I never think of that??
Avatar 11:07pm sgtpeepaw:

that rules, haha. I will happily check out the rest
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Fuzzy:

Upside down lefties rock!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm Mr. Pumpy:

Eno. Yes.
  11:56pm katharsis:

  11:57pm JakeGould:

Thanks JJ!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Nardo:
