The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

Hahah first on the comment
Bonjour Irene !
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:03pm βrian:

Hola, Irene.
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:04pm v k:

good afternoon Irene - looking fwd to spending 3 hrs with the music you enjoy - Arborea always nice to hear - u turned me onto them by playing Black Mountain Road a few yrs back
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:08pm listener mark:

Hey Irene !
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:18pm 12539:

Dulcimer, kora...I'm expecting a harp for the trifecta.
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:18pm dc pat:

Man, I have this LP somewhere. Very nice.
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:21pm βrian:

Yes, I have it, too. I believe it's just not possible to overplay. I've tried and failed repeatedly.
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:25pm dc pat:

Have to get it on cd somehow. It was a Folkways-like label I think?
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:29pm βrian:

Amazon has it: "New Ancient Strings"
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00000JFRU/
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:29pm Cecile:

That's the Glenn Jones from Cul De Sac, right? The liner notes from that one recording they did with John Fahey are kind of amazing and harrowing.
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:30pm βrian:

There's a black-capped chickadee in my headphones.
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:32pm dc pat:

I was talkin about Sidike Diabate Djelimadi Sissoko actually..
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:32pm annie:

i love the chickadee..... i'm not here at the comments se3ction really.. painting windows.. i'm here in spirit.
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:36pm βrian:

Paint on. Listen to the music; listen to the brush.
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:37pm richard c:

Hi Irene, can I request something? Gary Lucas played this at the UCB theatre last Wednesday and it's lovely: Gary Lucas "Lady of Shalott" I think the new album has just been released. Thanks!
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:39pm postmanpaul:

Hello Irene and all above, below and sideways. We are beginning to wonder if our cat Bob is a practicing bigamist.... he used to return home regularly with mice and things like that but now comes home late with only excuses for his absence.
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:46pm still b/p:

PMP - Aren't there plenty of casinos in your neighborhood? Bob's mistress might be one-armed, irresistible and insatiable. Check their security vids, and watch your change at home.
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:53pm postmanpaul:

Bob's had the 'snip' still b/p. No, we think it's worse than the lurid scenario you paint, he may be sharing his love with anothers lap and sofa ;(
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:54pm annie:

glorious sounds glorious!!! hello all..
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:54pm 12539:

@ postmanpaul: I've seen this sort of thing before, in sitcoms. Bob is probably planning a surprise party for you.
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:57pm richard c:

Woo Hoo!! Thanks
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:58pm annie:

our old girl cissy used to live across the street for a few months, staring out of their garage at us... should traded homes often..that old girl lived to be 23..
  Mon. 5/9/11 12:59pm postmanpaul:

Ooh 12539, that's nice. He used to like watching sitcoms with us.
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:01pm Detroit Mac:

Sad music for the death today of a cyclist in the Giro d'italia. RIP Wouter Weylandt
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:01pm Irene:

Happy to oblige, richard c!
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:02pm Kevinfrom BayRidge:

Gary did this song @ SSD @UCB last Weds.
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:04pm Parq:

Kind of interesting that Gods & Monsters include alum of the Modern Lovers and Television, and even Wikipedia describes the band as psychedelic, yet they chose to open their SSD guest shot (as Kevin and Irene note) with that lilting, Fairport-Conventionish accoustic tune.
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:05pm Parq:

As Richard C notes, too; sorry, didn't scroll up enough.
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:07pm βrian:

Berthiaume: "bear" "tea" "ohm"
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:08pm Kevinfrom BayRidge:

Given the Fripp-ish connection, not to many degrees of separation to Fairport-ishness
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:09pm βrian:

Pronunciation, not meaning, for heaven's sake.
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:17pm VS in DFW:

Yay! The wondrous voice of Liz! Thanks Irene!
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:18pm Mike East:

Loving the show today, Irene!
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:20pm Looms:

Seconding this, greetings and thanks.
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:24pm Mike East:

Lay Lady Lay chords!
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:50pm mike g:

Obsessed with this album, as of late. Good to hear it somewhere other than my cd player!
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:51pm Irene:

Same here, mike g. I'm sort of a 'late bloomer' on PJ but now playing catch-up. Love it!
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:53pm mike g:

excellent! she was fantastic a few weeks ago at terminal 5.
  Mon. 5/9/11 1:54pm v k:

obsessed with Elbow's new album, Build a Rocket Boys! - very much a late comer to Elbow
  Mon. 5/9/11 2:04pm βrian:

Wow. Haven't heard Steve Tibbets since I saw him in Montreal around 1990,
  Mon. 5/9/11 2:05pm Sean Gostage:

Hey Irene and good evening to all your loyal listeners
  Mon. 5/9/11 2:12pm thomas:

Missed the Glenn Jones track. Got to listen to the archive! Thanks for the great show Irene (as always)!
  Mon. 5/9/11 2:15pm Brian in UK:

Hello Irene & chums, late arrival. Great to see to you played the kora earlier. I guess that you mentioned that Sidike Diabate is Toumani's dad. There is a change in style/technique between the generations. Dad is more formal, son loose and outgoing. Eitherway one of the most wonderful instruments in my humble. Only on your show, Irene.
  Mon. 5/9/11 2:18pm Brian in UK:

PMP you have to check for weight gain to confirm whether your lil' darlin' is milking it somewhereselse.
  Mon. 5/9/11 2:18pm Irene:

Better Late than never, Sean, Thomas and Brian! As you probably know, you can check out all you missed in the archives.
  Mon. 5/9/11 2:39pm Eye in the Sky:

I can read your mind.
  Mon. 5/9/11 3:02pm 12539:

Thank you, Irene!
  Mon. 5/9/11 3:02pm Handsome Harry:

Great show today.
  Mon. 5/9/11 3:05pm VS in DFW:

Thoroughly enjoyed your playlist Irene. First time I've had the pleasure of listening.
