Need a rally this morning.
  Fri. 3/16/12 9:07am trolly mctrollerson:

man how long is this rally?
  Fri. 3/16/12 9:09am bruceleh:

Braxton bagpipes? Please?
  Fri. 3/16/12 9:10am bruceleh:

Great music for the to clear out the house at the end of the party.
  Fri. 3/16/12 9:11am bruceleh:

Paul Dunmall?
I'm sitting on the edge of my chair wondering who it's gonna be.

(a: not long enough!) hahaha / I'm just trollin'

What is happening? I really don't even know.

  Fri. 3/16/12 9:37am yayson:

excellent show
  Fri. 3/16/12 9:38am Ben:

That Forsyth track was amazing
  Fri. 3/16/12 9:41am fred:

Good morning Scott and listeners.
@Scott: I really liked your performance at the hoof and mouth
@Ben: I second that
  Fri. 3/16/12 9:42am Vikipedia:

Though the Scottish Great Highland Bagpipe and Irish uilleann pipes have the greatest international visibility, bagpipes have been for centuries played throughout large parts of Europe, the Caucasus, around the Persian Gulf and in Northern Africa.
Avatar Fri. 3/16/12 9:43am Scott:

Thanks, Fred! That was super fun. Thanks to Heather Faye Kahn for Lydia Lunch vocals. Could not have done that w/o her help!
  Fri. 3/16/12 9:46am Cheri Pi:

super set this morning Scott!
  Fri. 3/16/12 9:47am Chris from DC:

Forgot just how great this Chills song really is.
Avatar Fri. 3/16/12 9:51am Scott:

Thanks Cheri Pi!
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:07am SheShe:

Think that Beerland show is tomorrow night
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:08am common:

hell yea Rufus!!
Avatar Fri. 3/16/12 10:08am Scott:

Oh my, you're right! It is tomorrow. DAMN!
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:10am kat330:

Scott, I second Fred on your HnM performances! Didn't get the chance to tell you last week. And this Rufus rules.
Avatar Fri. 3/16/12 10:10am Scott:

Thanks. I would not have noticed that error.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:12am SheShe:

Sure. Should be a great show. I'm a lucky Austinite.
Avatar Fri. 3/16/12 10:14am Scott:

Yeah! Thanks, Kat!
Avatar Fri. 3/16/12 10:15am Scott:

You are lucky, I love Austin!
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:16am Kurt:

I love bagpipes. The Irish uilleann are too refined.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:18am Marmalade kitty:

bonnie bagpipes, aye :)
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:19am kat330:

Rufus, now Angus! We named two of our regular squirrel visitors out back Rufus and Angus. :)
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:20am Caryn:

Hello all! Note to self: get the Coltrane reissues.
Both the Highland bagpipes and the uilleann are great instruments, but I do always laugh at the Braveheart soundtrack using uilleann bagpipes. Yeah, they're more melodic, but seriously: wrong country!
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:21am Andrew Waterloo:

Say what you want about bagpipes. They'll always sound better than a large balloon.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:21am Mike East:

I told my one Austin friend to go check out the show. I'm hoping he does so he'll turn into a WFMU convert and start pledging his cash!! Nobody listens to me when I tell them this is the only radio station that matters. I think you have to come to it yourself for it to really sink in.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:21am Nathan:

My Scottish ex-girlfriend got an ASBO for regularly playing bagpipes to gabba music in Glasgow. What an unholy union. Still makes me laugh though simply because it's so ridiculous.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:24am Chris from DC:

I was hoping for David Watson when you mentioned the pipes.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:24am kat330:

@Caryn: Hey, BTW, I was way off the mark about my Holiday the other day. Not only is mine NOT on CD, it is actually a double vinyl set from 1972 on Columbia: "God Bless the Child," produced by Chris Albertson from the John Hammond Collection. I guess your 10-album CD was only on a wish list at some point in time! :) The vinyl has some nice cover art by Cliff Condak as seen here: http://www.discogs.com/Billie-Holiday-God-Bless-The-Child/release/2785503
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:25am Kurt:

Ulleann pipes sure don't inspire one to go off to battle. Or play golf for that matter.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:29am Brain in KU:

Pibroch
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:29am bruceleh:

Apparently someone is play bagpipes on the Morgan Stanley fixed income trading floor!
See what you started, Scott!?
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:31am Caryn:

Then again, seeing as Braveheart is a movie that in every way goes "aw, screw historical accuracy", the choice of the uilleann bagpipes is maybe totally appropriate.

@kat: cool cover!
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:35am bruceleh:

Oh, bagpipes, tomorrow is St. Paddy's day!
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:37am kat330:

I hear "Hail, Hail, the gang's all here" from time to time in this.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:37am MD:

ILLIAN PIPES...TOOO!!!!!!!!
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:38am Caryn:

Yay, Maighread! She's a bit of a legend, having been part of Skara Brae and all.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:44am dave:

put on the headphones, heard the pipes, and mentally went "JONESY!" before i heard scott's voice.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:45am Caryn:

Heh, Dave! Although the pipes would have to be playing the theme to The Magnificent Seven.
Avatar Fri. 3/16/12 10:46am Scott:

Ha! DropkickMurphy-free zone.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:47am Caryn:

Okay, is an elephantine crocodile just a really big croc, or is it some old name for the hippo? You know, like how the Romans called giraffes camellopards, because they looked like a mix of a camel and a leopard.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:49am kat330:

This looks pretty damn big: http://lyntwitchell.com/images/david_with_croc_2.jpg
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:51am kat330:

But not even as big as this: http://fan-tas-tic.com/wp-content/uploads2/2011/12/meanwhile-in-africa-giant-crocodile1.jpg
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:53am Caryn:

Oh, for the days of Eddie & Finbar Furey...
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:55am Caryn:

You know, that last one could definitely be called elephantine. But it's so big that the mouth looks kinda small in proportion...
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:58am kat330:

Yeah, well, I wouldn't call him "small mouth" to his face.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:59am Caryn:

Hey, I'm snarky but not an idiot! Well, not that kind of idiot, anyways...
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:00am Nathan:

Dinosaurs still roam the earth.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:02am kat330:

Caryn, do the Finns celebrate tomorrow night at all? (and I don't mean the Finn bros)
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:04am kat330:

JT brought home some Guinness -- the only beer he likes -- and I dunno if he's turning 100% 'merkan or it was already somewhat traditional. [If he starts watching Am. football, I'm going to ask his family to deprogram him in May. :) ]
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:05am Caryn:

@kat: not really. Certainly the Irish pubs all have events planned, but there's no general celebrating.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:09am kat330:

I understand it's not a big deal in Ireland either. At least compared with the U.S.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:09am Caryn:

It's very much an American holiday. I mean, it's nor particularly celebrated in Ireland either.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:10am kat330:

Synch!
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:10am Caryn:

Oh man, I think I owe you a coke.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:12am kat330:

I'd settle for a pinky link, but either one must be virtual.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:13am Caryn:

On a side note, I've always wanted to try a shamrock shake. Holding out my hooked pinky as I type.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:13am Mike East:

I'm just glad St. Patrick's day is on a Saturday this year so I won't have to deal with the drunk tourists on the bus.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:13am Andrew Waterloo:

St. Patrick's day has become nothing more than drunken plastic green obnoxiousness, and a few parades.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:14am Caryn:

You know, this is not the most riveting track I've ever heard. It's becoming white noise.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:14am kat330:

Aren't they just vanilla shakes with green food coloring?
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:16am Caryn:

@kat: see, I have no idea! I just like the name and the colour, so I'm curious.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:16am kat330:

I guess it is supposed to drive us Mad-hattan hatters.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:16am stefica:

i like the drone.
Avatar Fri. 3/16/12 11:17am Scott:

Oh this is Yoshi Wada again (still).
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:17am stefica:

thanks for clarifying. for those of us scoring along at home.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:18am kat330:

Ohh, sorry. He's still mourning the giant crocs?
Avatar Fri. 3/16/12 11:19am Scott:

Very much so.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:20am kat330:

They take tomorrow so seriously in Chicago, they dye the river green.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:20am Deepak:

Reflections in Global Musics sounds like an interesting compilation, will try and find it.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:22am kat330:

Great set of pipes!
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:24am kat330:

So did you welsh on the Welch?
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:24am fred:

@Deepak: I like it a lot. I saw Ian Nagoski play once, he had a bunch of CDR compilations of 78s, amazing stuff there
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:25am kat330:

I'm confused....
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:25am Caryn:

I sometimes suspect Chicago uses that as an excuse. "Yeah, the river's green. That food colouring, you know, for St. Patrick's Day! Nothing to do with pollution! Nothing at all! ... Stop looking at me!"
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:28am Sam:

Yes, then they can say "Chicago is a very green city"
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:29am Parq:

Karaoke at a bar called Beerland in Austin during SXSW sounds pretty neat, actually.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:33am Caryn:

"Crammed global soundclash" sums up many WFMU shows.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:39am kat330:

Yeah, I dig that description.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:40am Deepak:

This reminds me, maybe we can have a 'Gregorian chant hour' in the future.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:47am DeemerDave:

Why is Eric Cartman singing African music? "Hipnosis"
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:50am kat330:

@Deepak: I'd love to hear some very early music. A rebec drone certainly can offer a long rally.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:59am kat330:

Thanks for all the great pipes' sets, Scott! Have a safe weekend too!
  Fri. 3/16/12 12:00pm joe:

Obama looking to see if you want to go out and pop some bottles tonight?
