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.

  Tue. 5/17/11 9:15am still b/p:

Someone told me yesterday the almanac anticipates no sun around here until July.
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:15am northguineahills:

alice is perfect for rainy days....
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:16am Lonious Monk:

double rainbow!
(hello hello hello WFMU!)
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:16am trouble:

until july.....hmmm. best not plant too many sun needing flowers in my garden
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:18am BSI:

Would this be cobalt blue? It has a small touch of red in it so maybe...? Favorite shade of all. Must paint my eyeballs cobalt. It will improve everything.
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:23am ?:

hey, apache. i loves me some shadows (even if it's not the shadows).
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:24am glenn:

  Tue. 5/17/11 9:27am Parq:

Ditto what BSI is saying about this shade of blue -- reminds me of the sky on a clear evening in the last little remnant of daylight.
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:28am hamburger:

howdy doody - lovely painting
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:29am northguineahills:

  Tue. 5/17/11 9:34am Lonious Monk:

(the playlist)
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:41am Jennique:

Good soggy morning to you Trouble. Thanks a ton for your premium cd. Got it in the mail just the other day. Love the blue and gold coloring combo. Makes me think of old California license plates, Blue Angel fighter/show pilots, the movie Blue Velvet and the Swedish flag.
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:43am pierre:

Trouble you are the best, thanks for sharing this with us !!!
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:44am dc pat:

did we find out the significance of the aristocratic lady and/or who painted? Too lazy to look..
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:44am trouble:

glad you like it jennique! it was the second version since the first painting i made featured a puddle of hot pink that would not reproduce at all! weird, like it was a ghost in a photo or such...
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:45am bw:

Trouble!!! this got me out of bed!? French horse races!!! heeee I hope you are well
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:45am pierre:

"avenue des gobelins" that near where i live !
Dear Trouble, do you know when this was recorded ? is it 1968 ?
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:47am trouble:

hey bw! this is riots live a paris 1968!
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:50am pierre:

aaah knew it !
when the guys said "matraque blanche" (white club - as in weapon), it sounded like something from the past, know policemen clubs are dark, thus the blood is less visible… sigh police violences.

Trouble, i love your show.
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:50am pierre:

Hi bw !
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:51am trouble:

oui pierre it is live from the may 68 riots. i grabbed it off the web but alas i have to look for another copy now since this one is out of phase
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:52am richard c:

OMG Trouble, another Adrian Sherwood classic! Mark Stewart is well worth delving into but Jerusalem has to be a high point...
  Tue. 5/17/11 9:56am trouble:

i love that song, so freaky those soccer chants ...
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:05am pierre:

a "témoignage" is "a witnessing" dear Trouble
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:06am bw:

plastic skirt + clog man = Inventive America
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:06am trouble:

merci pierre
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:07am maja:

did dc pat already had an answer or did i miss something?
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:08am pierre:

au plaisir
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:08am Jennique:

If you cut holes in the plastic bag just big enough to fit your legs through, you could have plastic pantaloons. Now THAT is a look.
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:08am postmanpaul:

Hi Trouble, your painted lady has' hidden' Tamara de Lempicka-esq facial features but I know it's a Gainsborough. Without a shadow of a doubt!
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:17am Ken:

Who sang that version of "In the Land of Make-Believe" in your last set? I think I'm only familiar w/Dusty Springfield's.
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:18am trouble:

really pmp? do you think so? i found it thru the yale university archives and i can't recall the credit...
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:20am Brian in UK:

Hello Trouble, same weather overhere. Dullsville. Hey. Got a mental block with Morton Subotnick, always want to call him Milton.
postmanpaul, did you listen to Irene yesterday? New listener in Brighton commented? The Copper Family are playing The Greys pub on Bank Holiday, I want to get down for that one.
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:21am listener mark:

good morning trouble
good morning everyone
just arrived, my speakers are very busy today
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:21am trouble:

ooops. that was dionne warwick doing the dusty cover from a marathon comp that gaylord put together of dusty in memphis covers, in order of original
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:29am Marc in Liverpool:

Skipping. :-/
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:29am pierre:

yeah Tonetta,
a great way to salute Ken on the comment board !
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:37am pierre:

awesome the Lo Yo Yo !
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:43am postmanpaul:

Hey Brian! I proposed to my gorgeous wife-to-be in the Greys! I liked B Braggs Imagined Village very much (particularly the album artwork - can I say that without sounding like a pitifully shallow graphic designer?). Let's meet up there!
Trouble - I think I've spotted that painting before, was it poss hanging on the stair wall in a classic Vincent Price horror!
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:48am moose:

the sun is out!

(and i liked that tonetta skipping)
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:50am trouble:

good morning moose. a typed letter is on its way, houston we have liftoff!
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:51am moose:

  Tue. 5/17/11 10:53am still b/p:

Painting ID:
Mrs. John Bacon Pearce (1805-1870) (Sophia Myers)
c. 1830
Artist: Sarah Peale, American, 1800-1885

Wonder whut fo' it ain't in a frame?
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:53am trouble:

very yippee at my house
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:53am maja:

@pmp that makes more sense, but she IS intriging with that hair and fur
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:56am Brian in UK:

@pmp Sounds like a good idea. Need to sort out practicalities coming from Watford & whether there are any tickets left. My sister might be coming up from Somerset that w/end as well. You've confused me with the BB reference.
  Tue. 5/17/11 10:58am Carmichael:

Good non-Monday morning, everyone.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:01am aaron in chicago:

if this was any mellower it would be silence
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:01am dc pat:

thanks still
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:02am Brian in UK:

Would recommend the film 'Benda Bilili' to everyone if you get a chance to see it. Saw it last night, very touching as well as Congolese music with a new twist.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:03am aaron in chicago:

good thing!
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:06am annie:

trouble, is there any hint of your nest time-slot?
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:06am maja:

thank you
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:07am frenchee:

she is lovely in her ermine cape and heavy velvet !
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:07am annie:

i said nest..
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:07am m in manhattan:

hey trouble. what's the blogspot URL again? missed it... great show.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:10am trouble:

toysandtechniques.blogspot.com: m in manhattan
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:10am dc pat:

she may be lovely but she obviously needs to be guillotined, sorry...
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:11am listener mark:

Will the crane be installing an air conditioner on the roof? It is super hot upstairs, we had to drink many cold beverages to stay cool.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:14am pierre:

i didn't know this version, i think i'm in love with Debbie Harry
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:15am Deepak:

This reminds me, Blondie will be on A&E's private sessions this sunday
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:16am dc pat:

I've been in love with Debbie Harry for 30-some years...
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:16am postmanpaul:

I believed they featured on the album, Brian - song about a day in the life of an olden days Suffolk shepherd. Nice work still b/p! Am presently scrutinising and verifying. Thanks maja! Her hair and mink do not appear to be of that period, but.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:17am Deepak:

This is the only version a french friend of mine liked when i introduced him to Blondie.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:17am Brian in UK:

@ pierre If you like her, try this. It's on next Sunday.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:18am Carmichael:

OK, now I'm the comments board whack job once again for disliking Blondie.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:18am frenchee:

I thought Trouble was looking for a (whooping) crane in her backyard until she mentioned the parking lot...and the A.C.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:19am Deepak:

why would anyone dislike Blondie? Its the greatest band ever.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:20am dc pat:

blondie for me was like a gateway drug. I liked some of their stuff but quickly moved on to much noisier groups. Still in love with Debbie though...
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:20am pierre:

@ dc pat : yeah i've a friend who's been waiting as well.
@ Carmichael : yeah, but what about Debbie Harry ?
@ Deepack : thanks, will there be archive of that ? I mean, does the bbc has the same archive policy as wfmu does, which is completely awesome.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:20am Brian in UK:

This is what FMU needs more verbals. Is this a Jerry Lee Lewis take off? Hello baby you know what I like.
@pmp I think she is wearing a syrup.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:22am ffrr:

Good morning Trouble. Was that a 'teach your parrot to talk' record? I think I have that.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:22am Stevel:

I remember seeing Blondie on the Midnight Special about 100 years ago. I was SURE Debbie Harry actually checked me out with a slow, up and down look. Not sure what she saw in a 16-year-old twerp in his PJs, but hey, a boy can dream.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:22am Vivian:

Which WFMU djs appeared in the New Pornographers' Moves video?
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:23am listener mark:

Terret T
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:23am listener mark:

Terre T
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:24am pierre:

she plays a groupie ^^
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:24am Norwegian Blue:

Can't talk now. Resting, pining for fjords.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:24am postmanpaul:

@ Brian, that was Sussex, not Suffolk. PJ Harvey has a rather special new album out, wouldn't mind catching her at Barcelona's Primavera Sound Festival end of May.... awesome line-up. Thanks wfmu for covering the show.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:24am stu:

Your looking rather regal this morning Trouble !

  Tue. 5/17/11 11:25am aaron in chicago:

I like my tropiques triste.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:25am Deepak:

@pierre i'm afraid there's no archive for BBC programmes but if you check out TheBox.bz or any other private torrent tracker you'll find the whole thing.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:25am Brian in UK:

@ pierre I think that the BBC iplayer retains for one week.
Clem Burkes drumming was the BEST. Crisp, sharp on the beat.
pmp see you in Spain!!!!
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:28am pierre:

@ aaron in chicago : great reference.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:29am pierre:

@ aaron in chicago : great reference.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:32am postmanpaul:

Please play The Glorious Land off PJ's Let England Shake, some time Trouble.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:34am frenchee:

@Vivian: Therese the WFMU dj is also in the New Pornogs' video, so is Tom Scharpling's Associate Producer Mike. Mike is stellar with a gun in his mouth (held by indie fave "OH THAT GUY" whatshisname....)
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:36am Vivian:

@frenchee-Ted Leo? I think I saw Andy from Shut Up Weirdo in that video, too.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:38am dc pat:

  Tue. 5/17/11 11:40am jesse:

  Tue. 5/17/11 11:40am frenchee:

  Tue. 5/17/11 11:41am dc pat:

shouldn' this be called "Verfolgungswahn"
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:42am frenchee:

dis is der awesome fershion of vatever! It sounds a little bit like Shocking Blue
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:42am Deepak:

haha makes sense.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:42am Carmichael:

Now THIS (the Baskerville thing) I like!!
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:43am trouble:

thanks jesse
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:44am listener mark:

thank you trouble
the sun always shines here
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:45am Carmichael:

This seems like a slowed-down version of the 13th floor elevators.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:45am trouble:

thank you listener mark
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:47am Deepak:

  Tue. 5/17/11 11:58am Handsome Harry:

Fantastic show today. Even the emergency broadcast test was awesome.
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:58am frenchee:

Trouble, we need a crane update!
  Tue. 5/17/11 11:59am trouble:
