You see a blanket on the ground. It's your favorite color, smooth and soft. You can sit on it, or lie on it. It's a flying blanket, and you are the pilot. You are in control. You can fly anywhere you wish, just by thinking about it. You are the pilot.

  Mon. 8/1/11 9:50pm dave:

Important Records is a label that lives up to its name in precisely the way i hope Record Sluts does not.
  Mon. 8/1/11 9:51pm Dan B:

You are all very funny. Keep it up! @pikachu, can't wait to see you in Pennsyltucky this weekend -- where I can escape the piles of boxes at home! @PBB / Other David / Matt from Berwyn, thanks!

  Mon. 8/1/11 9:57pm Pikachu:

(dazzling stranger)
  Mon. 8/1/11 9:59pm Dan B:

@Pikachu, yeah, I love that song a lot too. That's the same guy who does the Topolino Song about hitchhiking in France and meeting a woman who gives him a ride -- you love that one.
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:01pm Dan B:

@Matt, here: http://importantrecords.com/imprec/imprec329

Peeking & Chewing
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:02pm Pikachu:

  Mon. 8/1/11 10:04pm Pikachu:

my comments are coming in a little late. Anybody have the same problem?
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:07pm Pikachu:

about maybe 1 minute instead of about 10 seconds.
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:08pm Pikachu:

or 30 secs
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:09pm Julie:

PIkachu is small he types slowly
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:10pm Pikachu:

Moving boxes. Ugh!!!
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:10pm Dan B:

Yes, there's always a bit of a lag between posting a comment and when it actually appears on the playlist. It's because our playlist servers are on Saturn. so the comment has to be beamed out, bounce off of Uranus, arrive at the servers on Saturn, then be sent back here to our computers. It takes a few seconds for all that.

  Mon. 8/1/11 10:13pm Pikachu:

  Mon. 8/1/11 10:13pm damien:

i do not know, am too busy watching the debut of this new tv show, called "M.A.S.H"
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:14pm Dan B:

Oh bye Pikachu!!!
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:15pm Pikachu:

  Mon. 8/1/11 10:17pm dave:

this barn owl album is one of my favorite new things this year. it's amazing.
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:18pm other david:

When the comments reach Saturn, Sun Ra has to personally check each person has added the numbers up correctly too.

It may not be efficient, but it works damnit.
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:24pm T-Zero:

Yay! Let's here it for powerlove.
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:24pm Matt from Berwyn PA:

yayyyy thankyou Dan B!!1
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:27pm other david:

This is going to be stuck in my brain for days... curse you
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:30pm T-Zero:

(King & Queen) heard this on Mary Wings show. Like it. Illaiyaraaja seems to be popular on WMFU this week.
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:37pm dave:

if SP Sailaja's baby was not shaking it after that exhortation, i'm not sure what could possible cause the shaking to commence.
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:40pm Parq:

Dan, yeah, the Pondo Stomp show was a great one, as was the listener meet-up beforehand. I regret only that you didn't get to wear one of those swell mustard broadcasting blazers. You would have looked quite dashing in it.
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:55pm T-Zero:

That's a nice little trilogy you created there, Dan B. (Nico, Welch, Espers)
  Mon. 8/1/11 10:56pm cheri:

hello dan & julie--- julie i hope you read my e-mail,,, if so,, what are your thoughts on it??
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:11pm Dan B:

Hi Cheri -- not sure if Julie's still on the playlist, but I'll mention the email to her when I see her after the show
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:12pm Dan B:

@T-Zero -- thanks -- glad you liked that. I worked on that one.
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:12pm Dan B:

@parq - yeah, I *totally* want a mustard broadcast blazer!!
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:13pm other david:

Still not so sure of the wisdom in calling ones band, Sun Araw - but heard them do a live set on WFMU a few weeks back and they're pretty excellent

Really liked the Espers & PG Six, but the latter wound up annoying me because the guitar sounded similar to another song - which I can't place, hence frustration
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:14pm cheri:

g'night dan thank you very much,,
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:16pm T-Zero:

@other david: Kind of like trying to ride the coat tail of Sun Ra huh?
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:16pm Dan B:

@Other david -- I kinda like the name - a bit of a tribute to Sun Ra with a little twist on it to make it its own name. But I can see how it could put one off a little. They're great though, and at least their name isn't something puerile like "Puffy Areolas" or "Fucked Up" or "Pissed Jeans." I just can't bring myself to bother with bands with names like that anymore. Not sure what the PG Six sounded like.
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:17pm T-Zero:

Ok. The comment frame is always a little slow, but this is *really* slow.
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:21pm Kat:

Dan, I'm with you re the stupid band names. Excellent show tonight. Heading home from work soon but hope to catch the rest of it on my phone.
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:22pm Jerry Garcia:

Today is my birthday. I just ate some pure, Crystalline LSD and a large cheesecake.

Can you play some backwards Banjo music as a birthday gift? or something similarly weird.


  Mon. 8/1/11 11:23pm daupo:

Particularly strong show tonight. I've been in and out, but loved everything I've heard.

  Mon. 8/1/11 11:24pm Dan B:

Oh Jer, I will *definitely* play some backwards banjo music for you, what a great idea! Thanks, DB. @Daupo - thanks!!
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:25pm T-Zero:

@Dam B: I see your point and would agree more if there full name was something like Eternal Tapestry OF Sun Araw (for instance) rather than just Sun Araw. Though I guess there could be an intentional pun allusive there... Son of Ra
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:27pm other david:

hehe Dan, yeah I like the tribute aspect - I think my main issue is with it on radio - I can imagine someone who never heard of Sun Ra trying to find out about them after mishearing a DJ.. and being mighty confused.

The PG Six thing.. it was all about the slideyish guitar, I think it may have been something like Pink Floyd - bear in mind it's 4:20am here and may be somewhat worse for wear though.

Regarding names.. I find myself a bit irritated by some of the portentious titles bands increasingly lend to simple instrumentals - I sometimes think they have to be taking the piss and the tracks are about, walking to the shop, rather than pondering a postcard from 1952, for example.
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:27pm T-Zero:

WOOops. Damn typos. Really not trying to curse you. lol
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:28pm Matt from Berwyn PA:

  Mon. 8/1/11 11:29pm other david:

btw Dan what did your sister make of her WFMU experience last week?
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:30pm Ike:

@Kat and @Dan B, agreed on those band names. Well, Fucked Up isn't bad -- it's simple, but the other two = such totally grodey imagery. Also Puffy Ar----s were not good live at Cake Shop. Just pure ear-drilling, face-slamming-into-brick feedback and screaming. And not the good kind.
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:31pm T-Zero:

@other david
Heh, I *really* need to get some sleep myself, but trying to hang in here for another 30 minutes before tearing myself away.
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:33pm Dan B:

Sarah loved coming to visit! Hopefully she can come back another time. I'm waiting for DJ Pikachu to get old enough to stay up with me in the studio on Monday nights.
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:38pm other david:

Awesome :)

This Alexander Turnquist track is beautiful, I see he's playing the same lineup as Jozef van Wissem in NYC, you lucky folks
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:39pm 12539:

I am late, and I wish you were playing something less lovely so I'd feel less regret.
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:40pm Ike:

THIS backwards banjo is the best thing EVER in the history of EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE!
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:41pm other david:

sdrawkcab ojnab!

*dances a jig*
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:41pm Kat:

It is pretty damn great.
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:41pm Jer:

That guy can play!
This cheesecake is repeating on me...
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:42pm dave:

that's some mighty fine ojnab right there.
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:46pm other david:

Yelnats Hplar should really record some material with the artist known as J-Beebz 800% slower
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:46pm dave:

Stceffe Fo Yteirav Elbakramer A Htiw Draob Gnixim A Dna JD A Elbatnrut A Cisum Sih Nam A
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:46pm dave:

... Panama!
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:56pm Dan B:

Alright y'all - I leave you with this track from Sami of Es and Jan of Kemialliset Ystavat, who together are Tuusanuuskat. Thanks for tuning in -- see you all next week I hope!
  Mon. 8/1/11 11:57pm other david:

Brilliant show Dan, really enjoyed it. Now to try and grab a few hours shuteye.

Goodnight all :)

Till next week
