  Fri. 8/3/12 3:07pm Cheri Pi:

Got any L.Ron? I need a good "Clearing"
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:09pm fred:

Good afternoon Kurt. Your show is turning out to be the silver lining to the lack of gigs these days
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:10pm Cecile:

what's with the Scientology stuff today?
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:13pm northguineahills:

Now, if we could follow up Larry Polansky w/ Paul Lansky,....
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:14pm Ike:

I am so completely digging this Larry Polansky track. Wild.
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:14pm Cheri Pi:

I'm just looking for something to counterbalance Bryce's heaven and hell theme earlier.
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:15pm Cheri Pi:

is he sampling the dial tone?
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:17pm Cecile:

heaven and hell? Let's embrace it! How about some DIO?
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:17pm Cheri Pi:

Poor Fred, we lack gigs in Cincy too! I feel your pain.
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:17pm Cheri Pi:

Oooo I like the way you think!
Avatar    Fri. 8/3/12 3:18pm DJ KG:

good day, everyone!
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:20pm das:

I love this show, but not in a Chick-Fil-A kinda way
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:30pm Cecile:

a chick-fil-a way would mean you're in a straight relationship with your first and only wife.
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:30pm Cecile:

so, I'd hope not!
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:32pm Cecile:

Kurt's show is the stuff of depraved, forbidden promiscuous love.
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:32pm Mike East:

I'm in a straight relationship with my first and only wife, but I heard about that Chick Fil A bullshit yesterday...and fuck them. I never ate there before, and now I never will.
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:35pm Cecile:

As the first and only wife of my straight husband, I must concur.

  Fri. 8/3/12 3:38pm das:

I'm in a straight relationship with a FEMALE chicken salad sandwich.
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:46pm Cheri Pi:

that means Rush Limbaugh can't eat there, nor Newt G.
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:49pm Honey Water:

Hi, Kurt! I'd love to view your link up above (thought we had to do tiny url's now?), but it says I must log onto Facebook. I don't do FB just like I don't do Chick-fil-a. :) Any other way to see it?
Avatar    Fri. 8/3/12 3:52pm DJ KG:

sorry honeywater. it's a facebook group. no other way to get at it. just a little chick-fil-a thing i started the other day.
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:53pm Honey Water:

Ah, OK. BTW, so glad I tuned in, albeit very late. This is nicely soothing.
  Fri. 8/3/12 3:56pm Honey Water:

Mr. East, if you're still around, what's your viewing plan this weekend? :)
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:02pm Mike East:

@hw - I have "Jeff, Who Lives at Home" at home. Saturday morning is usually some 60's scifi, but not sure what yet. I also might do "Once Upon a Time in the West" per your man's recommendation. I also have Game of Thrones, which I'm going to see if I like. How about you?
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:02pm Mark from VT:

I like organs. If you are going to eat meat you should eat the whole animal. And the whole Jesus if you eat his body all up in a church.
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:04pm Honey Water:

@ME: We have "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" on library loan to see, and we might blow our entertainment budget by actually GOING OUT to the multiplex to see "Beasts of the Southern Wild."
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:05pm Honey Water:

@Mark: Liver with fava beans, delish.
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:06pm das:

@mark: Save the lips and bits for Jesus dogs
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:07pm Ike:

I just saw "Never Let Me Go" which is beautiful and incredibly depressing, but also wildly unrealistic, unless there was some unshown conditioning or brainwashing to make all of the characters so ridiculously docile. Maybe the book explains it all. Anyway, Carey Mulligan is brilliant as always.
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:07pm Honey Water:

I quite enjoyed OUaTitW, I think Philo told you. I just peeked to see Bryce had played some Morricone. Have to check out his archive.
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:08pm Cheri Pi:

echo effect!
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:09pm Honey Water:

@Ike: We saw NLMG. Had pretty much the same reaction. Gonna pay 'tention to the interview now....
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:12pm Mark from VT:

Very Vedic
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:13pm G:

The Veda is rigged...
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:19pm Cheri Pi:

OMG I had 2 flash streams going at once, no wonder I thought there was echo.
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:21pm das:

I gotta get me some of that cat
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:33pm Cecile:

nice choice, David!
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:38pm Cecile:

I always thought "Evil" was about original sin and redemption. But that's still something heavy for a pop song.

Phil Collins took a lot from EWF, and talked them up in print, but just didnt' pay the members of the band who played with him.
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:43pm dave soldier:

hey Cecile
glad you like it too... cool, that interpretation sounds right... so it is a song from all of humanity acknowledging our badness? so it is as deep as it seems? speaking of which, some bad ass kalimba
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:44pm Cecile:

I love this track!!!!!
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:44pm dave soldier:

and Kurt, thanks for playing Billy Bang, a great soul
Avatar    Fri. 8/3/12 4:45pm DJ KG:

thanks for chatting with us, dave, here and on the phone!
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:46pm Honey Water:

Yes, Dave, it was a really interesting interview!
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:47pm Cecile:

I think the song says humans are wired for badness, but they can turn it around it by love and prayer.
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:47pm Cecile:

yes, great interview. Thanks, Dave!
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:48pm Honey Water:

On the subject of music as a money-making endeavor prior to Sinatra: Yes, Bach must have been doing OK to support 20 children. :) And Mozart seemed to live well.
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:50pm common:

have good weekends everyone!
Avatar    Fri. 8/3/12 4:51pm DJ KG:

i think bach had certain benefits of the court at different points in his life - housing and fancy parties. but i don't think he had a lot of money a lot of the time. i don't think he had freedom to go where he wanted and do what he wanted. he was pretty dependent on the demands of his current position - even to the extent of what kind of music he wrote!
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:52pm Fredericks:

This Roscoe is beautiful.
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:54pm Honey Water:

Everything I've heard since I tuned in has been a joy.
  Fri. 8/3/12 4:55pm Honey Water:

Kurt, you could be describing Mozart's situation, but I thought Bach was dictated to more by the church, not the court. ICOCBW!
Avatar    Fri. 8/3/12 4:55pm DJ KG:

glad yr listening, honeyw!
Avatar    Fri. 8/3/12 4:57pm DJ KG:

well, i'm hardly an expert (and no less about mozart) but i believe bach had both royal and clergical appointments during his life.
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:00pm Honey Water:

The Dream Merchant was soooooo nice. Philo was home in time for that and concurs. :)
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:02pm hamburger:

a bit late for the Gottschalk Smackdown
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:10pm Honey Water:

You're on your own, hamburger -- he has us all pinned to the floor with great sets of music.
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:16pm Fredericks:

Nice breather, then more magic!
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:19pm Honey Water:

Just FYI, Fredericks, plan to post a "polished" version of Ballad of the Bard some time next week (the one sent you as a file attachment) -- and then more limericks over the weeks to come. Been fun finding appropriate background music for each.
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:21pm Cecile:

hey, Kurt, do you know about Mary Lou Williams' release "Black Christ of the Andes?"
Avatar    Fri. 8/3/12 5:26pm DJ KG:

no, cecile, i don't! do you have details?
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:27pm Honey Water:

Fairfield Four! 110 in the shade with Fogerty was a fine one -- and so apt for our weather this summer.
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:30pm Fredericks:

Hey Honey, do operate under a different moniker?
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:30pm Cecile:

it's her 1964 tribute to Blessed (now Saint I think) Martin de Porres, the first black person to be beatified. It's on Folkways and on emusic and whatnot. It's an interesting mix of blues, gospel, jazz and some jazzy choral music.
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:31pm Honey Water:

If you read that title with different breaks, might be "cocaine / devil's dream blow."
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:32pm Honey Water:

Oh, yeah, sorry. But I imagine only one person sent you a file of a limerick recitation. She be I. ;)
Avatar    Fri. 8/3/12 5:32pm DJ KG:

i'll look for it!

  Fri. 8/3/12 5:33pm Cecile:

I actually discovered a track on some house DJs soundcloud recently and was blown away.
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:36pm Honey Water:

We're having ourselves a tent revival of that good ol' time religion. DJ KG. Entering the weekend cleansed and prepared to walk the good walk. :)
Avatar    Fri. 8/3/12 5:37pm DJ KG:

looks great! thanks for the tip.
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:40pm Honey Water:

Holy moley.
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:44pm hamburger:

guacamole...
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:45pm Fredericks:

Do I hear Derek Bailey?
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:47pm Fredericks:

Nope. Chadbourne.
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:47pm das:

Hey Kurt, which day is it okay to beat your woman? I forget
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:50pm Honey Water:

Yeah, Kurt, pin *him* to the mat in your smackdown.

Guacamole's great on hamburger.
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:50pm anthony:

  Fri. 8/3/12 5:52pm das:

Thanks, what days does WFMU recommend?
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:52pm Honey Water:

Thanks a ton, DJ KG! Have a great not-beating-up-anyone weekend and week, listeners! Byeeee!
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:54pm das:

Ditto, great show!
  Fri. 8/3/12 5:56pm Bad Ronald:

Sweet sounds KG, thanks! Ima listen to Shut Up Weirdo and beat my dutch bride despite FMU policies.
