Listener comments!

  Wed. 5/4/11 9:12am Amanda:

Listen to Nazario Scenario here: http://wfmu.org/wfmu_drummer.pls

(The links at top left will redirect you to "mainstream" WFMU should you hanker for something different.)
  Wed. 5/4/11 11:50am listener james from westwood:

hello amanda! just have to run down the hall to get towels out of the dryer and i'm in for a good listen!
  Wed. 5/4/11 11:52am Amanda:

That's awesome, LJFW -- this show has some good laundry-folding music. Welcome!
  Wed. 5/4/11 11:58am Brian in UK:

I find ironing very theraputic and pleasing for listening to music. No really.
Hello Amanda.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:00pm listener james from westwood:

sweet! there's a delightfully rhythmic field recording from an african (want to say ghanaian) post office that ken sometimes plays, of postal workers whistling and cancelling letters. i always thought, what perfect accompaniment to pairing socks that would make.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:00pm Amanda:

Great to see you here Brian :-) and I agree... since I discovered WFMU my clothes have been a lot cleaner on the whole.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:02pm Boing boing:

Does the doctor have to know how to play the bongos?
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:03pm Amanda:

I would love to hear that post office field recording. I'm uninitiated to such things but dollars to donuts Doug is familiar with it.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:04pm Brian in UK:

James if only I could find pairs of socks in our house that match. This is SOOO R' n R!!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:04pm Amanda:

@Boing boing -- no, unless he is a doctor of rhythm. (right?)
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:06pm listener james from westwood:

@Brian: "mostly match" is a more accurate end result of my efforts! tho' i do try to ensure there's only one hole per pair.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:06pm Brian in UK:

There was a similar recording I heard a while ago of women washing clothes in the river with the slop, slop of the water. A theme here. This is going to be the cleanest, sweetest smelling programme since the last one.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:10pm Brian in UK:

Well, James you do need a hole to put them on surely, Shirley.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:10pm Drummer Some:

Brian in the U.K.,
You just got the opening scene to "Born Free" in my head. I can see the red blood in the water now. Save me Amanda!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:11pm listener james from westwood:

And Monica, IIRC, has aired a field recording of women pounding/grinding grain with these curiously gleeful yelps amid the work. Whatever gets you through the labors!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:12pm Amanda:

Some melodic sweetness and light is coming right up.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:13pm Gene:

Oh dang I missed Edsel
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:13pm Drummer Some:

LJfW,
Would you stop with the "pounding/grinding women" already! I'm trying to concentrate on a radio show.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:14pm Brian in UK:

Some great group names today. Anything by Sap. don't know if they exist but who cares.
Good Foundation, Amanda
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:15pm Amanda:

aw, thx :-)

Gene!!!!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:16pm listener james from westwood:

@GTDS: Now that sounds more like a Las Vegas field recording. You must be over 18!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:19pm Danne D:

Hi Amanda :) Will be listening on the phone for a bit then catching some of it later at work - will have to get the whole picture on archives :D
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:21pm Amanda:

Hi, Danne... glad to have you on board in any time frame.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:21pm Skirkie:

Woooo, first official show.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:23pm Amanda:

FIRST EVER!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:24pm listener james from westwood:

Chicago font! I've seen that used on signs in movies. ::cringe::
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:25pm texas scott:

sounding great,Amanda.
great show.congrats.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:25pm efd:

wait a minute, are you actually live??
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:26pm Drummer Some:

I pledge to eschew lunch until this show is over! Solidarity!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:26pm efd:

Also, I fully support the incursion into hair band territory.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:29pm listener james from westwood:

I've been out to lunch since 1990. Nobody noticed a difference.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:29pm Drummer Some:

Hair band territory. Isn't that somewhat northeast of Abbottabad?
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:29pm Amanda:

@texas scott, thank you sew much. so happy you are here with us!

@efd, nah, this is another pre-record -- but it's from Sunday at the same time of day. So everything I've said is technically true.

@Doug -- yes! hair bands and hunger pangs for all!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:32pm listener james from westwood:

@GTDS: i;m wondering if al-zawahri will turn up in nearby costellobad.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:33pm Amanda:

Also, I have not had any food today either.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:34pm efd:

You're really embracing the role of starving DJ that you created on Sunday.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:36pm Amanda:

What can I say, I'm dedicated to my art.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:38pm Brian in UK:

Affordable Art
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:39pm Brian in UK:

Did BOC used to be called Soft White Underbelly?
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:41pm Amanda:

Yes! Oysters have those, you see.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:43pm efd:

April Wine!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:43pm Brian in UK:

They are in season, I might shell out for a few. Auw shucks.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:44pm Amanda:

Here ends the most Evan Funk Davies-friendly set I've ever unintentionally created.

Brian -- jeez, every word from you is a pearl!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:46pm Brian in UK:

I'll clam up now. Truce.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:53pm Amanda:

Very big of you, to apologize for your shellfishness
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:55pm Gene:

This is my favorite Spizz song. Thank you!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:56pm Amanda:

Aw, great! Too bad there doesn't exist one named Van Vorst Park.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:57pm Brian in UK:

I'm just a prawn in your game. Now I've put it in whiting.
Loved The Rousers. Put me in mind of Chris von Sneidern & Umajets.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:58pm Amanda:

Everyone on this playlist is going to go out for seafood come 2PM, thanks to you UK Brian. Glad you liked.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:03pm Alf from Upstate:

Potatomen, April Wine, Vitamin String Quartet, Hungry Boys, Baby Carrot. Quite and oral fixation going on here.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:03pm Brian in UK:

Well it's teatime here. Making pasta sauce with basil, add some pasta gorgonzola & parmesan. Bingo. Hey, DS it's booze or food, n'est pas.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:05pm Amanda:

Would love some of either right now. That's the punk rock boy/girl side of me talking.

Heh, peppermints too... add that to the list Alf...
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:06pm Brian in UK:

...and Oysters!!!!!!
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:06pm Drummer Some:

At least when I'm on the air, I can run down to my own fridge and grab a snack. (I never do, though.)
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:07pm Brian in UK:

Cheerios?
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:18pm Brian in UK:

Are Merge records popular. They got my attention with Richard Buckner & East River Pipe. They seem like a solid indie label.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:20pm charlie:

Amanda, you sure has sung with so many great bands!
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:22pm Gene:

Amanda, are you going to the Jeff Mangum show at the Loew's?
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:22pm Amanda:

Brian -- Oh, no doubt! They're solid as a rock. Founded by Superchunk's Mac & Laura. Home to Superchunk, Destroyer, Wye Oak, Spoon...

CHARLIE! I know, I sure can pick 'em, right? We have to get that softball team going, by the way.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:23pm Drummer Some:

That was really fantastic.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:24pm Amanda:

Gene -- maybe? depending on when it is. I didn't know nuthin' 'bout it
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:24pm charlie:

That's not an easy song to sing, with the phrasing and all. I love that you sing along with the records!
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:28pm Amanda:

Hey, everybody does it... extremely glad that my wonderful streammates approve, though!
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:30pm Brian in UK:

Wasn't sure about the singing along at first but yea it's cool. It takes a lot of bottle. (old Ingerlish term front, nerve, guts)
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:33pm listener james from westwood:

hey, someone down on the 3rd floor @ FMU, loop amanda into the day's lunch order! :D send an expedition to the jersey city food-truck line!
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:37pm Amanda:

It's no sweat James, food truck lines will be shorter in half an hour. Brian -- here we go with the booze talk again!
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:43pm Brian in UK:

Oh miss you make me blush. The clock says it's beer o'clock here. Do you think we can get DS to sing along with some Polish Funk on Friday?
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:44pm Amanda:

On Polish holidays it's ok to drink beer at 9 in the morning, so maybe.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:47pm Drummer Some:

Brian,
If you had ever heard me "sing," you would know enough not to ask that question. Leave it to the Maestro of the Midweek.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:51pm Brian in UK:

Sad to say DS, I am in the same category. Not sure if Welsh or Polish would be more challenging to the silent orchestra..
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:52pm charlie:

She *can* sing.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:53pm Amanda:

Oh, but can't dance -- that's for damsure. (and is also glued to the radio.)
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:55pm Mike East:

I met Marshall Crenshaw. He was a really nice dude. Seemed real laid back.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:56pm Brian in UK:

Gotta cut & run to the kitchen. This one has gone the distance. Really good show, Amanda. Getting loose.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:57pm Amanda:

I love him.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:57pm Amanda:

Bye, Brian! See you on the flipside...
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:58pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks a ton for the great tunes, Amanda. See you in chat this Fri and hear you next Wed!
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:59pm Amanda:

Sounds good, LJ. Thanks ever so much for hanging out today.
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:00pm Drummer Some:

Coming up on the Stream:
Eartha Kitt
Transatlantic Winkham Chicken #5
Miguel Yamba
Johnny Jano
George Hamilton IV
Bobby Bare

and more

and more

and more...
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:00pm Amanda:

Hm, my drawing came up blurry. I will fix that in a minute.
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:01pm Amanda:

Leave Give The Drummer Radio on ALL DAY LONG!!! Thanks Doug, and all you cats.
