A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Yo, Trouble! Whaddup? Good morning, All!

so nice to see that viking ship
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:09am miketp:

hi trouble and fellow listeners. home from work a mental health day. an overcact thurs in e rutherford nj music is our sunshine
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:10am megisi:

"A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow."

Jack White hangs by a rope off the starboard side, his pants around his ankles and his karma stuck in neutral.
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:10am trouble:

good morning! did i play this song during the marathon? i can't rremeber, bcuz i had it cued up for half a show but don't remember if i let it rip...oh well, sounds great anywho
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:11am fas:

hello, everybody. you are all in US?
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:13am takio:

Portugal feeling the love of Trouble :)
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:15am kittykittymeowmixhead:

good morning
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:16am megisi:

nope ... detroit
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:16am Parq:

How cool is that? In a world where most radio stations play the exact same thing every couple of hours, an FMU staffer is hesitant because she *might* have played the same track two weeks ago. Miss T, you're far too good to us.
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:16am north guinea hills:

moondog on organ, this is new to me, and quite awesome!
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:19am postmanpaul:

hi trouble, not at work tday, tuning in earlier, did i catch an isreali radio stn at the end of kurt's show?!
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:20am fas:

wow, this song is amazing
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:20am Parq:

What a lovely version of "Afro-Blue"!
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:20am miketp:

hey parq i dont mind hearing a tune if iheard it afew weeks ago. sometimes i need to slow down and live with the music. either way its really ok for me. let the music play.
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:25am Glenn L:

Hi Postmanpaul, you probably heard a snippet of Jewish Moments in the Morning during the Brother Lucy/Trouble
transition. JM in the AM airs over WFMU's terrestrial signal
M-F from 6-9AM.
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:28am postmanpaul:

love beiruts last and loved that cd cover too.
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:29am trouble:

bom dia portugal!
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:32am chris:

thanks for the Cornell lab of ornithology link!
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:32am takio:

"Boa tarde", hehe :) oooh i missed those giggles :D
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:33am Parq:

My point exactly, Mike. In a world where most radio stations take it on faith that I want to hear the same song every 45 minutes, FMU gives us the luxury of embracing the chance to hear a really neat song with some infrequent regularity. Worth the cost of an annual pledge? Yes, I think so!
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:35am postmanpaul:

hi glenn, thanks for putting me in the picture; i guess it was the unlikewfmu style of 'delivery' that threw me as much as anything!
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:38am Glenn L:

You got it, postmanpaul.

I am really really late for work. Again.
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:41am trouble:

boa tarde...it's not many people who can misspell in multiple languages, but that would be me. wrong but strong, i say
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:41am "afro blue":

was listening on the ride in to work - great tune - thank you
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:44am listener mark:

Good Morning Trouble
Good Morning World
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:46am gumby:

Digging on this Dexy's track. I love those little leather clad ragamuffins.
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:49am stingy d:

i hate being so busy
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:50am postmanpaul:

same as mr gumby
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:52am takio:

you didn't misspell at all - just timeshifted :)
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:53am megisi:

whatta great set with the chilites smoothing things down in the middle ... thanks for the fetchin' sounds, trouble!
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:53am 55ffrr:

Good morning trouble & all. How 'bout some Sun Ra for our fellow shuttle travelers (Rocket #9)?
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:58am doug:

digging tudo azul
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:58am stingy d:

anyone know the best bike shop to go to in greenpoint/willaimsburg??? i need to stop being unhappy
  Thu. 3/26/09 9:58am nasok:

on point as always
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:04am stingy d:

yo nevermind because i've decided ok!? so if anyone knows where i can get a new or rebuilt pair of legs, that would also be welcome information.

Good morning,Trouble and all the rest!
I am grateful to be busy here at work.
So I am listening as I toil!
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:07am chalbeda:

your Voice !!!?..Its great ! I love it!
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:09am Pete:

The only river between Chicago & Detroit is I-94.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:13am Carmichael:

Sylvia!!! Play "Bell Jar"!!!!
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:13am Vivian:


From what I read, Ted Hughes left Sylvia for Assia Wevill, who also killed herself in the same manner as Sylvia. Unfortunately, Assia also took the life of her daughter by Hughes.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:13am listener mark:

depression can lead to terrible things
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:13am esch oder anarchie!:

I always enjoy it when you play this, Tr. Sad news about the son in Alaska. Talk about Joy Division!
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:14am Cecile:

  Thu. 3/26/09 10:15am listener mark:

anger and depression
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:15am ~L:

Thanks for playing the Plath, more poetry!
Ted Hughes did write the Iron Giant, which was turned into a good kids animation.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:16am a reader:

Plath was all about suicide long before she met Hughes, you know.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:16am listener mark:

anger, depression, and resentment
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:17am Cecile:

On the more frivolous side:

trouble, Season two of Conchords is set for August, and will have lots of DVD extras...

I want to tell you about the finale, but shan't.
it is beautiful, though.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:17am Cecile:

DVD, I mean. Left that off.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:18am Pearlÿ Sweets:

Is it official now that it is the last season? I know last year that is what they kept hinting at in interviews.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:20am mike tp:

don cherry sounds great is he still alive?
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:21am Cecile:

No one knows for sure.
It takes a lot out of them.

Itwill be a while before Season 3. Jemaine Clement is doing a TV show with Conchords/Eagle Vs Shark director Taika Waititi in New Zealand, and Bret McKenzie is releasing another Video Kid album, his solo project. Trouble, you might like Video Kid - very gentle, melodic, electronic and dubby. More wry than funny.

So they have stuff to do.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:21am Cecile:

if there is a season 3
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:21am Pearlÿ Sweets:

Don Cherry passed away in the 90's.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:22am the diacritic kid:

oh, and on a lighter note from the last mic break, the band múm pronounce their name "moom" with a long vowel (i think). they played at an atp in england some years ago and gained a reputation for repeatedly explaining that their band name is not 'mum'.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:24am Matt:

Ahh, Land o' tha Loops. Forgot about them, actually him - I used to skate with that guy back in high school.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:25am miketp:

thanks never got to see him. did see pharoah sanders roland kirk elvin jones at the vanguard in my late teens sun ra too.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:25am Cecile:

nice, i like land of the loops.

Hey, someone could do a great legal drug set with that Nation of Ulysses aspirin song, and this one.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:26am stingy d:

i bought a land of the loops cd about ten years ago and it gave me three liner note thingies.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:26am sugarwolf:

Don Cherry the hockey guy is still alive tho
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:27am Cecile:

mike tp, that's great.
I saw Pharoah about 7 years ago, still was amazing.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:27am Cecile:

never watched it all the way through, but if you're from Upper Michigan, the CBC is part of your culture.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:27am Carmichael:

One of my oddest and most entertaining concert experiences was Sun Ra & the Arkestra.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:29am Carmichael:

Trouble, does Sippie Wallace appear on that comp? I really like Shorty Blues.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:29am Cecile:

I remember seeing them on Saturday Night Live (WTH!?!?!) as as teen.
I miss those days when SNL would put anyone on Hal Willner liked. now it's just an industry showcase.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:31am Parq:

Aw, this auction number is collossal! Even more over the top than Porter Wagoner, and that's going some.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:32am texas scott:

what a sweet song about losing your home...
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:32am stingy d:

this reminds me of that herzog film for some reason... i mean i guess there is the obvious... i can't think of the name of it
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:32am mike tp:

remember that david sanborn late nite music show on in the 80s he had a real rare mix of artists.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:33am Cecile:

it is amazing.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:33am Carmichael:

I still have a VHS of Captain Beefheart on SNL. It was really strange; he played free-form clarinet as a song-ending solo, and the stunned audience sat in silence. Someone can clearly be heard saying, "Shhhiiittt ..."

The Jonas Brothers were on a few weeks ago.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:33am owen:

  Thu. 3/26/09 10:33am Cecile:

yes, mike!
I couldn't get it where I was at, but everyone I know was absolutely crazy about it.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:35am stingy d:

how much wood would a woodchuck chuck, but yea stroszek he did use them fellers too
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:35am Carmichael:

Night Music was Sanborn's show. I have them all on VHS. I just yesterday watched Jo-El Sonnier & Richard Thompson singing Tear Stained Letter, with Sanborn and that whole kick-ass band behind them.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:37am Carmichael:

As you can see, inferior technology is right at home in my house.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:38am postmanpaul:

is that a skylark up there?
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:39am Carmichael:

Swiss Family Weymouth.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:39am trouble:

no carmichael no tippie...
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:40am trouble:

i mean sippie
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:41am Parq:

Words over there!
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:42am Carmichael:

Thanks anyway, Troub. I'll look up that v/a coll and perhaps expand my horizons. I did like the Anna Jones track.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:42am Parq:

He don't stop, and he don't stop.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:42am Doug from DC:

That Sanborn show was actually really good. I remember one time Sun Ra was on, and Sanborn went to jam with them. He dropped all the smooth jazz bs and ripped out a wildfire solo. Sun Ra looked at him from the piano like wtf?
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:43am Carmichael:

Strangely, I knew exactly what you meant and never noticed the typo ....
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:43am Cecile:

Carm, they should really reissue that whole show on DVD.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:44am Cecile:

Sanborn did a killer Ornette album and also a tribute to Julius Hemphill with Tim Berne.

I had a friendship fall apart with a Sanborn loving friend because those two releases of his were the only ones I liked. Her loss.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:45am Parq:

B/t/w, SNL was always an industry showcase, I say. It's just that now they're showcasing bands that suck.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:47am Matt:

Love those Meters.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:47am Carmichael:

I saw Todd Rundgren, Taj Mahal and Nancy Griffiths act out, in full costume, a Gilbert & Sullivan tune. The image of Sanborn with a sailor hat on is burned into my synapses.

His most uncomfortable discussion was clearly Bootsy Collins, who spent an inordinate amount of time discussing all the acid and coke he used to do. He kept trying to bring Sanborn into the mix, saying "Remember, man?? that night???"
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:47am Cecile:

But people like Zappa and the Kinks and Ornette and Sun Ra weren't exactly burning up the charts then...
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:48am gumby:

I saw Fleet Foxes on SNL & they did White Winter Hymnal it was quite a beautiful acapella song about a young death. I probably never would have heard of them any other way.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:50am Carmichael:

SNL used to be rock, but they sold out to pop many years ago. About the time Rod Stewart sang Hot Legs.

And you're right Cecile, it's a friggin' travesty that this stuff is not available on DVD. Maybe Michelob is holding back.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:51am Doug from DC:

Sanborn started out trying to sound like Coltrane. It's funny that more than one sax player like that went commercial. But the jazz biz was bleak for a long time during the seventies and early eighties.
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:51am ferreal:

love da sounds...
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:52am PMD:

seriously, this is nice. prefuse 73, eh?
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:59am andy:

First time listener in the uk, really enjoying the show.
That Prefuse 73 sounded like a remix of a song by The Books, i forget which one. But it was great!
  Thu. 3/26/09 10:59am still b/p:

Looook! ...at such a playlist that passed while I was out in the truck that sounds like an airplane to talk to the man about a used vehicle loan. Now one more face-to-face with the ice-blood salesmen. This show is mojo and salve....can it gimme armor and a cold axe, too?
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:01am Matt:

Yes, thank you. The Camille Yarborough original is so much better than DJ What's His Name's version.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:01am owen:

i've never liked prefuse much, but he has done some really pretty stuff with savath & savalas.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:01am fidel:

i love this song, trouble!
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:03am miketp:

hey trubbs this shw is party tested great show will play for one of my house parties soon and i thnk you
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:03am hello caller:

reverse. snow is flying in up. the mix 'ole Music makes it warm
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:04am PKNY:

First Cyrille Nevillie, then "Take Your Praise"? HAWT. You are killing it right now!
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:08am Vivian:

Did Book of Love lift the intro to this song for 'Witchcraft'?
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:09am Carmichael:

Watching Cyril Neville & Brian Stoltz duet on "Caravan" at a Neville Brothers concert was a thing of beauty.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:16am Cecile:

It's sad that we are talking about the 80s as a golden age for music on TV. How did this happen?
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:17am Rob and Katie:

Katie sez she thinks Musee Mechanique may have quoted Fairport's "Farewell Farewell" in the intro to their lovely The Propellars. Anyone else hear that?
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:20am Cecile:

uh, maybe? what she said?
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:22am trouble:

hi rob and katie! that would be fairport sampling the traditional " willie of winsbury",as that snippet was from a trad recording. i mixed it so you thought it was part of musee mecanique.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:27am Carmichael:

Yes, Fairport does indeed *cover* Willie O' Winsbury. Love to hear about others' Celtic ear.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:29am still b/p:

That was it -- that tewelde redda! That's what I'll sing/channel with some head and shoulder jerking at the car salesman's desk!
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:31am Rob and Katie:

Thanks Carmichael, Trouble for the illumination there. And Trouble for your fancy live mixing, very impressive! And hi Cecile!
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:32am Cecile:

hi RobandKatie!
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:33am Cecile:

which Fairport record is the good one?
I keep buying ones that I like 1/2 of...
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:34am Parq:

Hmm. Does anybody else remember a UHF broadcast channel in the 80s that ran music videos? They had a very tight rotation, but I did get to see (repeatedly) Husker Du's video for the Mary Tyler Moore theme and a live Zappa performance of "Whippin' Post" (seems he finally listened to all those catcalls).
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:35am miketp:

hey carmichael sat 6 to 9am fmu show shrunken planet has folk and celtic groove. jeff davidson has a fine show
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:35am BSI:

So I get a late start on FMU and end up missing Don Cherry AND the Monks! It'll never happen again! Wah!
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:36am Glenn L:

U-68, Parq!
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:37am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:38am mike tp:

hi parq wish id see zappa do whippin post. seen him at carnegie hall with flo and eddie and anysley dunbar on drums the mud shark era.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:39am GP:

Right there with ya BSI..and morning to all, Trouble, this Uncle Wooody stuff is jst what I needed.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:39am Cecile:

OH, love this SONG.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:39am stingy d:

everybody likes rick rubin
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:40am Katie:

Re: Fairport: yes, that kind of is the way, although by saying this I will be inciting the wrath of countless fans.
That said, because the good songs are so transcendent...I deal.
what we did on our holidays, liege & lief...you probably already have.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:41am GP:

OK...an extra 'o' and no 'u'...I have to buy some vowels....

Yeah, we ALL like Rick about as much as Kanye and Snoop dog...yeah we like him a lot....ahem
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:42am Cecile:

My favorite debauched expatriate rai singer!

Yeah, Katie, that's what I thought. And it's true!

And I'll incure some more wrath by saying I don't like their version of "Time Will Show The Wiser"

And my favorite Sandy Denny perofrmance might be on that one Led Zeppelin album.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:43am Cecile:

although rick rubin aside, taha is really galvanzing live.

(and he wears leather pants)
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:43am megisi:

Fuse me, Rachid!

Yeow, what a crusher tune.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:43am Doug from DC:

He's singing:
Out! Out!
Sadness, hate and the reign of arbitrary
Out! Out!
Destruction, jealousy ; there is no trust left
Out! Out!
Thirst and people are unlucky
Out! Out!
No honour, but oppression and slavery
Out! Out!
Rivers were dried up and seas have ruined everything
Out! Out!
Stars are switched off and the sun went down
Out! Out!
There are no trees left and the birds stopped singing
Out! Out!
There are neither days, nor nights left, darkness only
Out! Out!
Hell; there is no beauty left

  Thu. 3/26/09 11:45am stingy d:

i'm not dissin yr man, i'm just sayin
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:45am katie:

yes, one of the most incredible live shows ever.
though rob's hoof and mouth cover was pretty smashing. (I'm biased)
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:45am Cecile:

Aw, man, I got that Death disc the other day. It is great.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:45am Pearlÿ Sweets:

Ray Manzarek: Show me the leather.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:45am BZ:

Death Death Death Death!!
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:46am stingy d:

ugh ray manzarek was the biggest pouch of douche ever
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:46am mike tp:

leather underwear too.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:47am BSI:

Leather handkerchief as well.
...or so they say in nasal circles...
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:48am miketp:

what do you mean you do not know how to hustle?
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:49am Cecile:

Aw, man. i gotta hear that.

I loved Taha's banter: "Minneapolice! We are sex machines! ALGERIAN sex machines!"
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:49am Carmichael:

Cecile, you didn't like Liege and Lief? Unhalfbricking? Their 1st self-titled? I don't think there's another that will knock you flat; the rest are representive of that style. Maybe try some RT solo stuff, or the Fotheringay album.

Parq, that Zappa video is from "Does Humour Belong in Music", available on DVD. They're playing Dancin' Fool, and they stop dead and swerve directly into Whippin' Post.

The DVD has many great examples of Zappa's superior jazz/rock and metal solos. Amazing guitarist.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:51am Cecile:

Carm, I love half of those records, and am confused by the other half. And I know the RT solo stuff very well.
I guess I'm more a fan of Steeleye Span's more straightforward, bashing approach.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:51am Carmichael:

Tal friggin' Farlow. Wow, Trouble, I never thought I'd hear him again on radio.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:52am miketp:

sounds like the velvet frog mel torme
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:53am stingy d:

damn man, i didn't know i had an ed grimley in effect, fuckin mirror
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:53am efd:

How lame am I that I only know this melody because of "You Went The Wrong Way Old King Louis" by Allan Sherman?
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:53am mb:

Tal, Tal, Tal! A Jersey treasure for sure.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:55am Carmichael:

Ya Cecile, at one point they didn't know if they were Jefferson Airplane or the Dubliners. Fair play to yeh.

Steeleye Span is great, as are the Albion Band, the House Band, the Home Service, and Planxty. But my soft spot enjoys the Pogues and Horslips. Can ya tell I'm Irish?
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:56am stingy d:

nad huhuhhuhhuuhuh
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:57am still b/p:

efd: That's where I first heard it and a fistful of other songbook standards.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:57am BSI:

I'll second the nod towards Steeleye Span. The early stuff, naturally. Below the Salt, Please to See the King... great stuff.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:57am Doug from DC:

Fairport's version of Sailor's Life is a psych classic, but they could throw people by switching styles all over the place. That R&LT album Hokey Pokey is a good example. Sometimes when I listen to it I have to skip every other track.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:59am Cecile:

that's it Carm.
maybe a little?
My husband loves Irish music, too.
But I found out about the Steeleye on my own - I lived in Australia for a year, and saw a clip of them doing "all around my hat" in a sailboat outsie the Sydney Opera House!

Yeah, BSI. I liked them up to All Around my hat, and then not so much.
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:59am GP:

Stingy, did ya punch it? Ed Grim is cool though
  Thu. 3/26/09 11:59am Carmichael:

On the other hand, I couild never truly appreciate the Strawbs, because I can only handle so much of Dave Cousins' voice.
  Thu. 3/26/09 12:00pm stingy d:

nah we held hands.
