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.)

Hi Irene and Happy Holidays. Love the Julianna Barwick record from this past year. In my top 5.
  Mon. 12/26/11 1:00pm Peter K.:

I'm listening! There's no one to stop me, and the only other person working in my area of the office today is hard of hearing. Lovely sounds for a lovely day.
  Mon. 12/26/11 1:07pm annie:

  Mon. 12/26/11 1:20pm Looms:

Hooray for Cosmic Ocean Ship! One of my fave albums for 2011 too.
  Mon. 12/26/11 1:27pm pierre:

Bonjour Irene, long time no chekin in !
Bonjour everyone in the wfmu winter wonderland !

Wearing my "radio es amor" tshirt feeling totally in contexte right now.
  Mon. 12/26/11 1:34pm Looms:

Irene, do you know a website where we could get a copy of Kitchen Cynics' Ampometer?
  Mon. 12/26/11 1:35pm annie:

not sure if it's the guitar work and the lyrics together, or what but this song is a tearjerker.
  Mon. 12/26/11 1:54pm Looms:

Thanks for the info about "Alan Cynic" on fcbk, Irene.
  Mon. 12/26/11 1:58pm Irene:

You're welcome Looms. In writing, the best way to get Alan Davidson's Kitchen Cynics CDs would be to write to him through Facebook (Alan Cynic) or email him at kitchencynics@googlemail.com
  Mon. 12/26/11 2:02pm SmokinJ:

Seasons Greetings Irene & listeners worldwide. Beautiful set as usual..
  Mon. 12/26/11 2:04pm annie:

  Mon. 12/26/11 2:29pm Looms:

These throat singers always drive me mad: I'm so desperately unable to do so :(
  Mon. 12/26/11 2:31pm Looms:

Maybe I should quit smoking...
  Mon. 12/26/11 2:35pm T-Zero:

Just would like to say: Beautiful program today, Irene.
  Mon. 12/26/11 2:35pm SmokinJ:

Tobacco at least ;)
  Mon. 12/26/11 2:36pm Irene:

Smoking in moderation ain't so bad.
  Mon. 12/26/11 2:39pm Looms:

I'll try to keep that "in moderation" in mind ;)
  Mon. 12/26/11 2:41pm SmokinJ:

"In moderation" has little meaning with highly addictive substances.. That's why we quit..
  Mon. 12/26/11 2:41pm Looms:

@SmokingJ: what else? Dandelion?
  Mon. 12/26/11 2:42pm SmokinJ:

Not quite Looms ;)
