time for my steinski-theme dance! (james brown sees me dancing from the ether; weeps)
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:07pm northguineahills:

Saltine crackers, I missed your show, Doug!

Bend over and assume the position (waiting for the archive), northguineahills.

That weird electro glitsch you're hearing is on the master, Do not adjust your machines. It won't last past this track.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:14pm listener james from westwood:

all hail the electro-master!
and howdy all!

OK, mostly cleaned up and back -- I heard that, Doug! :) Thank goodness for microfiber upholstery and plastic sandals. The only casualty was our sanitation/sewer bill, but that's rubbish anyway.

Carm, if still there, I'm thinking saying rabbitx3 on the first day of a month is lucky only for those NOT born in the year of the rabbit/cat. :>

Hey Vicki!

I noticed in the Howl clip that Al sounded juuuust a little like Jerry Lewis.
Avatar    Fri. 6/1/12 12:19pm Doug Schulkind:

All is safe, Van. No twitching body parts (are visible) over here.
Avatar    Fri. 6/1/12 12:19pm Doug Schulkind:

Thoughts of Jerry Lewis reading Howl will get through the rest of the day.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:20pm kat330:

Oh, is that where Andy Breckman got his catchphrase from?
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:21pm still b/p:

The Beaty Professor.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:21pm listener james from westwood:

i always imagine andy got "go to hell" from don mclean. who i hear is an asshole.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:23pm kat330:

Every time I see or hear an ad for the Gutter Helmet company, I think of Andy and go to his happy place.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:23pm northguineahills:

that had much flavor....
Avatar    Fri. 6/1/12 12:24pm Doug Schulkind:

Great piece about McLean by Breckman in an old LCD program guide from WFMU. McLean's reputation does not escape unscathed.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:24pm kat330:

Cool cover this.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:39pm tshr:

Heya. Good listening. This show and previous.
Avatar    Fri. 6/1/12 12:40pm Doug Schulkind:

Allo, tshr!
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:40pm Carmichael:

OK, back from a meeting. Ready to ... uh, do SOMETHING ....
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:40pm kat330:

Right on, working for oneself!
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:41pm listener james from westwood:

hear hear, sez this freelancer
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:41pm tshr:

Hello Mr. S.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:43pm listener james from westwood:

must head out a bit early, but merci beaucoup for this fine show! an excellent weekend, all!
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:43pm kat330:

Carm, did you see my note to you @ 12:17? I think it's only fair to warn us folks. :)
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:44pm kat330:

Same back to you, LJfW!!
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:44pm Van in DC:

have a great weekend LJfW!
Avatar    Fri. 6/1/12 12:47pm Doug Schulkind:

Bye bye, LJ from W.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:48pm tshr:

.. what he said.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:49pm northguineahills:

I can't imagine the time and care that Steinski put into these shows. Frisian awesome!
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:50pm northguineahills:

(I don't believe Steinski is actually Frisian. [a group of islands in the NW of the Netherlands])
Avatar    Fri. 6/1/12 12:50pm Doug Schulkind:

No less than 20 hours went into each hour-long show. I worked with Steinski during this stretch and watched him do it.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:52pm Carmichael:

That's your call, kat. Personally, I'd do it anyway.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:52pm kat330:

Same exact thing an actor experiences what he describes here.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:53pm northguineahills:

Sometimes when I improv, I have no idea what I'm doing, but that's b/c my consciousness is turned off.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:54pm kat330:

@Carm: Just saying, not even 10 mins after my incantation, coffee everywhere. :) Sure it's a coincidence, and next time I'll make sure it's an inCATation.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:55pm still b/p:

Was it 20 hours of Steinski assembling according to a mapped sequence/shape on paper or in mind, or trial-and-error reshuffling and choices in the moment?
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:56pm kat330:

@NGH: When you're in the zone of any performing, it's like an out-of-body experience.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:57pm Ricardo Montalban:

This is great! Been enjoying this mix immensely.
Avatar    Fri. 6/1/12 12:59pm Doug Schulkind:

If the playlist doesn't make it clear enough, you are hearing Steinski read Bud Freeman's words from Studs Terkel's book "Working."
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:00pm northguineahills:

true,kat330, true. I need to get my cornet fixed. but one doesn't need an "instrument" to play. One show, I found some good acoustic bricks in the lot around the block from where the gig was. add contact mics, woila. I sadly lack talent, but compositional imagination, and friends who are actually technically talented, fill in the gaps.
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:00pm Van in DC:

I thought that voice sounded familiar ha ha
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:00pm kat330:

Very delightful indeed. Thanks for bringing the blend, Doug, and thanks to the blender, Steinski! Have a great weekend everybody!
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:01pm seang:

cool show!
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:02pm kat330:

And no, did not know that was Steinski reading Freeman. Thanks.
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:02pm northguineahills:

I liked Studs rip on Lawrence Welk......
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:02pm Van in DC:

Thanks Doug, Steinski. Ya'll and all ya'lls out there have a great Friday, a better weekend, and a terrific June, not to mention a fantastic rest of 2012! :)
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:02pm northguineahills:

I mean Bud....
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:02pm kat330:

I like Studs' book. :)
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:03pm northguineahills:

(trying to read 3 things at once)
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:03pm kat330:

Leave no stone unturned, Van! Same back!
Avatar    Fri. 6/1/12 1:04pm Doug Schulkind:

Coming up right after Steinski, WFMU tech director is going to replace the battery back-up on the stream's server. Shouldn't lose the stream, but it you do, it won't last but a few seconds. Hang on to your socks!
