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.)

Hello Irene,
Welcome back, we have missed you. Hello to all your wonderful listeners.
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:09pm Van in DC:

IRENE!! Missed ya! Happy happy joy joy that you are back! :) :)
Avatar Mon. 8/13/12 12:10pm Irene:

Thanks Sean! It's good to be back, although I wouldn't mind continuing the vacation from a beach somewhere. (Someday I'll figure out a good way to do that.)
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:11pm Bob in Miami:

Welcome back Irene~Can't wait to hear about Newport.
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:17pm Cheri Pi:

This is gorgeous Irene, welcome back!
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:25pm Van in DC:

This morning I saw a CNN write up about the Olympics closing ceremony saying that NBC cut out a few performances, notably Ray Davies, The Who, and *Kate Bush*. I about had a heart attack when I saw that...but found out it was just audio of RUTH over something else and not Kate live.
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:29pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@ Van, the chance of seeing Kate "live" these days are pretty remote,
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:30pm Van in DC:

I know, ergo my tizzyness ;)
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:31pm ken:

love the ethereal big band vibe this morning...
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:31pm Mike East:

Maria Schneider was in here rehearsing a few weeks ago. One of the better orchestras we get.
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:33pm BSI:

ERGO MY TIZZYNESS.
love that.
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:33pm v k:

anyone else have opportunity to see Sigur Ros this summer? performance in Brooklyn at Prospect Park was magical
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:35pm Cheri Pi:

ergo my tizzyness = great band name.

WMFU is off the air
Avatar Mon. 8/13/12 12:36pm Irene:

Too Bad! I would jump at the chance to see Kate!
By the way, I have lots of photos from The Newport festivals and a few other things on my Flickr page.:www.flickr.com...
If I can figure out how to embed them at a smaller size you may see a few in the playlist page.

@ v k Wasn't able to get a ticket. listened on WNYC NPR
Avatar Mon. 8/13/12 12:36pm Irene:

Not here in Jersey City. Mark, where are you listening?
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:37pm still b/p:

ergomitizzinus = great name for a minor medical condition.
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:38pm listener mark:

I'm in the Hudson Valley, it's back
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:39pm BSI:

Nice Coulterism.
Avatar Mon. 8/13/12 12:39pm Irene:

Thanks Mark. How long was WMFU off?
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:40pm Cheri Pi:

I never lost you (flash)
  Mon. 8/13/12 12:41pm listener mark:

A few moments it happened on Chris M's show also
  Mon. 8/13/12 1:03pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Welcome back young lady! Just pretend that your listeners are your beach.

I will Kevin. Listeners, let your comments wash over me!
  Mon. 8/13/12 1:10pm paula pc:

what a beautiful show today, Irene...REALLY enjoying it!!!!
  Mon. 8/13/12 1:12pm Bob in Miami:

I am digging your Newport vibe Irene,keep on keeping on in that Keepnews tradition.
  Mon. 8/13/12 1:13pm Van in DC:

ha at the Caution Pricy Road sign :)
  Mon. 8/13/12 1:16pm paula pc:

@ Bob in Miami -- EXACTLY!!!!!!
Avatar Mon. 8/13/12 1:18pm Irene:

Yeah, that sign shows up on this winding road that takes you to Ft. Adams where the festivals are held. Lots of brick walls to keep out the curious. Pretty funny!
  Mon. 8/13/12 1:19pm Van in DC:

Oh! So you DID make it in time to see Sharon! Nice!!

Wonderful photos, you guys had great seats :)
  Mon. 8/13/12 1:20pm Mike East:

before looking at the playlist, I thought they were saying - "Babalooooo!"
  Mon. 8/13/12 1:21pm Bob in Miami:

Hi Irene just checking in From London
  Mon. 8/13/12 1:50pm kat330:

Hi, Irene -- just checking in from Indiana -- and so glad I did. :)

How you feeling these days, Jay?
  Mon. 8/13/12 1:53pm Jay/ London:

I am Good Kat330 still on Holiday went to mrbrian wash one man art show today easier to get round town now the games are over
  Mon. 8/13/12 1:55pm kat330:

That's excellent to hear! You folks staged a bang-up Olympics. I wish I could say anything positive about the network coverage over here, however.
  Mon. 8/13/12 1:59pm Hugh:

Welcome back to the air Irene,
Had friends,& some family at Newport, all agree w/ Peter's remark about how festivals are for the young!! Up-coming; Philadelphia Folk Fest. this wknd, haven't a clue about any of the line-up except, Red Clay Ramblers. This event is always a blast!
  Mon. 8/13/12 1:59pm Jay/ London:

the BBC did great we had 26 channels for the games and no ads ... enjoying the show Irene glad i tuned in
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:01pm flyin' hun:

Howdy Irene! Big greetings from eastern Europe....actually Belgrade, Serbia...Awesome list!
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:01pm Bob in Miami:

Hey Irene,is Rodriguez the same cat who did one LP on Buddah in the early 70's. I think i have that Lp in my collection. Great track regardless..
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:01pm Bill:

Went to one of the Fleadhs at Randalls Island to see two acts in particular, Frances Black and the Sawdoctors. The went on at exact same time. At a later show, I told her about this she smiled but didnt seem too thrilled that we did go over to catch the lads who came all the way from Tuam.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:02pm kat330:

Here's Irene's great photo of Rodriguez: http://www.flickr.com/photos/irene_trudel/7679681386/

Can't wait to see the Searching for Sugar Man doc having heard so many great things about it.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:04pm kat330:

Speaking of fine music documentaries, we just watched "Anvil" on Saturday. I recommend it to everyone, not just metalheads. It succeeded in the ways the Pixies' doc did not.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:06pm Van in DC:

Yay! Sharon!
Avatar Mon. 8/13/12 2:07pm Irene:

Thanks Kat I've been meaning to see that Anvil documentary. Heard great things about it.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:07pm v k:

if you like Rodriguez, you might also like another overlooked musician of that era: Ted Lucas; great self titled album (1975)
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:08pm northguineahills:

Thanks for posting Irene's pic of Rodriguez, kat!
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:09pm Hugh:

The Philly Fest is at a farm, in Schwenkesville PA. Very Close to Jersey, way north of Philly.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:09pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Kat330,
Totally agree, saw Anvil last year I think, terrific, recommend "searching for Sugarman"
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:14pm kat330:

The personality of Lips, his sheer earnestness, helped to make the film compelling.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:18pm kat330:

This is a lovely laid-back and soothing set, Irene. :)
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:20pm Bill:

That is a fantastic shot of Rodriguez, Irene.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:21pm Mike East:

@kat330 - I agree. There was something about them that I related to. Its about not giving up on your dreams even when everything in reality is telling you that you probably should.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:23pm kat330:

Full-on flashback time! :)
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:24pm kat330:

@Mike: Glad for such an upbeat ending, but I did wonder to Philo, Did his sister ever get paid back?
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:25pm Bob in Miami:

Great set,first time i saw Arlo was at the Newport Folk Fess in 1966. (Alice's Restaurant). Did you see the Guthrie family reunion??
Avatar Mon. 8/13/12 2:27pm Irene:

Yes, Bob, I actually saw the Guthrie Family Reunion at Central Park Summerstage, then saw part of their set at Newport. Ducked out to see somebody Else because it was virtually the same set. Totally great though! Arlo said he's playing Carnegie Hall at Thanksgivingtime with Pete Seeger.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:28pm Mike East:

@kat330 - I sure hope so. I think they made some money with that movie and the hype that followed it.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:30pm kat330:

@Mike: Yeah, that was Philo's response, that the proceeds from the film probably paid off her loan.

@Irene: Did you see Seeger on the Colbert Report [from 8-6-2012]? Try to find it if not. He's a 93-yr-old juggernaut.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:31pm Bill:

We saw Arlo live in studio at "Nashville Now" with Ralph Emory and Shotgun Red.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:33pm kat330:

And then also a glimpse of him in yet another music film we saw this weekend, the Joan Baez doc "How Sweet the Sound."
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:39pm Van in DC:

Yay, Laura! :)
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:40pm kat330:

Yes, yay! :)
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:43pm kat330:

I lived in Manhattan at the time of her Fillmore East performance -- couldn't afford concerts though.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:44pm Bob in Miami:

You're killing us Irene!!
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:46pm v k:

...keep waiting for Alabama Shakes...
Avatar Mon. 8/13/12 2:47pm Irene:

It's been a great couple of music weeks!
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:48pm doca:

wow, and i've never heard of laura nyro before. thanks!
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:48pm kat330:

@v k: Mm, I like AS, too! Weird as this might sound, I think one of the newest Fiona Apple tracks could be covered beautifully by the AS vocalist.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:51pm Van in DC:

Sigh...did I mention how much I missed you Irene? All is well in the universe again. :)
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:54pm kat330:

So very glad you have returned, Irene! What I've heard today is why I wrote that comment at the end of your last playlist before vacation. It's a fact.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:55pm the glowing one:

It's funny when people compare someone to Kate Bush... implying Bush's singing was unlike any other. They've obviously never heard Laura Nyro.
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:57pm the glowing one:

BTW, there's been another shooting. This time at the Texas A&M university... :(
Avatar Mon. 8/13/12 2:57pm Irene:

Thanks for Listening everybody!
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:58pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Loving Laura Nyno
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:58pm Van in DC:

I've been listening to both Kate and Laura for decades. But Kate is the center of my musical universe :)

Wonderful show Irene, many thanks! Welcome back again!
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:58pm the glowing one:

Thank you Irene for the show!
  Mon. 8/13/12 2:59pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Sorry Nyro, great show Irene, many, many thanks
  Mon. 8/13/12 3:00pm Bob in Miami:

Thanks Irene for making my day!!
  Mon. 8/13/12 3:00pm slugluv1313:

good afternoon Irene, only tuning in now but SO enjoying this Laura Nyro loveliness *sigh* miss her so much
@ doca, Laura Nyro is . . . amazing, a true legend . . . i never got to see her live, but her music STILL gets me right in the guts, gives me goosebumps, etc. -- please do check her out!
oh no, ANOTHER shooting? sadness . . .
  Tue. 8/14/12 5:40pm drewo:

Nice to have you back Irene and thanks for sharing your festival experiences. It's always wonderful to hear Laura Nyro - a real New York icon.
