  Fri. 2/17/12 9:16am glenn:

really? dennehy was doing a bunch of theatre here last year, and everybody says he was a great guy. then again, people do lie to newspapers. he's definitely a great actor.
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:19am fishmonkeystew:

Maybe I caught him on a bad day. I don't know. He lives locally, and I've heard of many run-ins between he and the locals. He actually pulled into my friend's driveway, got out and blatantly made fun of her Smart Car. Though truth be told, her car IS pretty funny.
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:19am still b/p:

Noooooo, she didn't.

  Fri. 2/17/12 9:26am fishmonkeystew:

Hi Parq! Directions to Rt 84 in NE CT. She and some of her crew got lost in CT while trying to take the scenic route. They stopped at the cafe where I worked, got a coffee and she asked for directions. I have no idea how they ended up in Pomfret, CT, cause that's pretty much in the middle of nowhere.
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:26am Bob in Charlottesville:

Smokey & the Rhythm Riders sure knew a lot more different chords and ways to put them together than any cowpokes I've ever heard.

Do you remember the scene in 'In the Mood for Love' when Tony Leung is staring t'wards the camera his hair greased, barely perceptable moving. Then he breaks into a faint smile, beautifully lit scene.

Thought that perhaps this was the first time these guys have been played at WFMU. Nope. Doug of course played them back in 2004. :)
Avatar Fri. 2/17/12 10:18am Doug Schulkind:

Why, no, Van. A...cough...you (cough) heard? Really?
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:19am Van in DC:

Barely audible Doug, no worries, I, uh, only barely heard it because, uh, I've got headphones on ;)
Avatar Fri. 2/17/12 10:22am Doug Schulkind:

I had headphones on too, and heard it loud and clear. Believe it or not, I am STILL getting used to this home studio set-up. Back at WFMU, a nice little light would illuminate when the mic was on. Here in Studio P (Pittsburgh), not so much.

Cry me a river...

She kinda already is :-(
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:38am northguineahills:

I've been out of work for 7 months now, so no multi-mouse pledges this marathon, just a tee-shirt. However, once I've been working a few months, I'll donate belatedly.

See y'all "over there" at noon...
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:50am Van in DC:

I haven't decided yet if I'm going to do show by show pledges or just one to WFMU in general. I think if I do show by show I'll lose out on premiums in the end.
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:51am Brian en Angleterre:

Mr Johnson was charming. The intro was familiar, Coltraneish.
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:51am ndbob:

Can you pledge to the Give the Drummer Some stream in general?
Avatar Fri. 2/17/12 10:53am Doug Schulkind:

Van, you can pledge however, whenever you want, then select whatever number of premiums you qualify for later. It doesn't matter when you actually make the pledge(s).

To be honest, ndbob, a pledge to my show is as close to a pledge to the STREAM as you can get. The stream is my baby. I will be sure to bounce her on my knee extra goofily in everyone's honor.
Avatar Fri. 2/17/12 10:54am Doug Schulkind:

And by the way, Claude Thornhill here is our mystery guest: on.fb.me...
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:56am Van in DC:

Really Doug? Back in October, I did show by show pledges, and ended up with only 18 t-shirts, 7 bars of soap and 10 WFMU stickers. Or something like that. ;)

I still haven't figured out who is supposed to be pictured in the band on the shirt, but I've had several people compliment it :)
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:58am northguineahills:

Derek Bailey on Give the Drummer Some, a first in my book, and I actually have this rec as well (There are scores of Bailey releases)
Avatar Fri. 2/17/12 11:00am Doug Schulkind:

@northguineahills
Despite my ever-expanding tastes, I've always found Derek Bailey a tough nut to crack. I realize the "problem" is with me and not his music, but I'm still working on it.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:00am Hugo:

I've seen Han Bennink live twice. He literally plays the room. He once asked me for several strips of cigarette paper. Wonder why :)
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:02am trsh:

Ches Smith—name is new to me. Thanks seang!
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:08am trsh:

I did the sound for his band in Halifax one time. Tough set up-- just the one electric input.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:09am northguineahills:

Han Bennink is a clown in a seriously awesome way when he plays live. I got to see him w/ the ICP Orchestra a while back and once w/ someone else at Tonic a while back (It was a Satnite and drinking at the subtonic dance party beforehand, so I can't remember whom else it was).
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:15am Hugo:

He looks pretty much like a banker these days, but that's before he gets behind the drum set. I've heard this style described as stick-insect improv, random objects picked up on the tube on the way to the gig, and a packet of crisps ...

Personally, I'm more in the Ogun camp than in the Incus camp, but that's just me ...
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:18am trsh:

He's the only drummer I've ever seen get out from behind the kit, get down and play the floor.
Avatar Fri. 2/17/12 11:20am Doug Schulkind:

Han is pretty much the Cecil Taylor of the drum world. There is no surface, object that is not fair game.

Funny how Hugo and Ogun are remarkably similar looking.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:23am Van in DC:

Thanks Doug. Missed most of the show today due to work...will catch on archive. Hopefully will get to hear some Steinski later...if not, another archive listen for me. Again. :)
