Welcome back, Tony! Lotsa pasta listening even if little keyboard ca-noodling today. Will try to do better next week. :)
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 11:13am tonyc:

Ciao, dear listeners -- TC here. It's week one of my three-week Italian rock special ... and, also, week one of FMU's month-long silent marathon. As many of you know, each show during October has a fundraising goal -- help me meet mine, won't you? Thank yers!!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 11:15am tonyc:

Hiya, Kat -- nice to see you here so early. Read your message as "will try to do BATTER next week." Guess I'm hungry!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 11:16am tonyc:

In fact, I'm off to eat my morning West Coast toast....
  Tue. 10/2/12 11:18am listener james from westwood:

i'll just be over here next to cannoli mountain, steadily nibbling at the foothills.
good morning, tony, and happy october, all!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 11:20am tonyc:

Morning, James! Now I am really going to go eat my toast. Back in a bit(e).
  Tue. 10/2/12 11:35am Carmichael:

Hiya Tony and early risers. I heard Sensations' Fix yesterday on Scott W's show. If you could squeeze in these ItaliProggers to you setlist, it would be buennisimo!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 11:38am tonyc:

Hey Carmichael! Was planning to do just that! I guess some kind of Sensations' Fix CD box-set thingee just came out. I don't have that, but I do have all their LPs.
  Tue. 10/2/12 11:44am Carmichael:

Awesome! Yay, prog!
  Tue. 10/2/12 11:49am Ricardo Montalbani:

Ciao, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 11:51am tonyc:

So, again, contrary to what the Upcoming Special Events announcement implies, I'm not doing three hours of Italian rock -- I'm doing 9 hours, over three weeks ... so, there'll be plenty of time for prog -- and for everything else.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 11:52am tonyc:

Ciao, Ricardo! (That's convenient: Your first name is both Spanish AND Italian.)
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 11:55am tonyc:

Prepare to stand for the Italian national anthem in 5 minutes (I'm dropping my usual in-theme for the next 3 weeks).
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:01pm tonyc:

The Italian national anthem heard outside your window late at night, that is....
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:05pm tonyc:

This Naif Orchestra track is a cover of the Italian national anthem, believe it or not.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:07pm tonyc:

OK, OK -- they're singing in French. But they ARE an Italian group.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:13pm tonyc:

By the way, my apologies to Italians and italian-Americans everywhere for calling this three-part show "Spaghetti Rock Special." What can I say -- it's the easy, obvious reference!
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:15pm Doug Schulkind:

Tony might not say a peep, but I will. PLEASE make a pledge in honor of this wonderful show and in support of Give the Drummer Radio and WFMU. Use the pledge box atop this page to pledge directly to Tony's show. THANKS!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:16pm tonyc:

Amen, Brother Doug. Pledge for me playing Italo-Disco, won't you?
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:17pm Manuel di Bruxelles:

ciao a tutti frutti!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:18pm tonyc:

Ciao, Manuel!
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:19pm Manuel di Bruxelles:

i really like this feeling of despair on european new wave
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:20pm Manuel di Bruxelles:

despair is not the word: pressure is
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:21pm tonyc:

More Italo new wave until the end of hour, then it's on to other things.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:24pm tonyc:

Hey everyone: One leetle pledge would be nice to get the ball rolling. Do it for Italy!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:25pm tonyc:

Sex in Ball = Sex Symbol?
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:25pm Doug Schulkind:

Let's get Tony up to 25% during this show. A single pledge of $100 will do it!
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:29pm BSI:

all lurk, no listen.
greets, tribe!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:30pm tonyc:

Hey there, BSI!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:32pm tonyc:

Hey someone -- make a pledge, no matter how small, just to get the pledge-o-meter ticking.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:33pm tonyc:

Pledgers receive the usual level-appropriate swag as always, of course.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:39pm tonyc:

I was feeling guilty that Greece only got 3 hours (i.e., the all-Greek show I did a while ago), while Italy gets 9 -- until I discovered that Italy has six times the population.
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:39pm listener james from westwood:

i think some mighty listener has put you on the board, tony! thanks, awesome person!
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:40pm listener james from westwood:

from each according to his population, to each according to his euro-disco.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:43pm tonyc:

Yay!! Thanks for the pledge!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:44pm tonyc:

Got lost down the rabbit hole for a minute there, trying to find out who the pledger is. Thanks, o mysterious one!!
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:48pm Manuel di Bruxelles:

@listener j f w :))
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:48pm tonyc:

Hey, is a "12" maxi" exactly the same thing as a "12" EP"? Or does maxi imply something a little longer?
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:50pm tonyc:

Urps -- a completely strange cat just walked into my "studio"! Had to show him the way out....
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:53pm Ricardo Montalbani:

I had rambunctious kittens for a spell who would love to check out spinning turntables, so when I was doing my show or recording a set, I had to guard the room. Sorta ended my tradition of cueing up a long track and stepping out for a smoke.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:54pm tonyc:

My own cat is well-behaved. This was an alley cat who somehow got in the house (well, I did prop open the front door, so no mystery there).
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:56pm tonyc:

OK, so you hate Italo-Disco and Italian post-punk -- but you love Italian prog. Now's your time to pledge!
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:56pm Ricardo Montalbani:

Maybe he was just surveying the prospects. Like job shopping.
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:56pm listener james from westwood:

that cat knew where he or she would find a good home, it seems. cats be smart like that.
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:57pm listener james from westwood:

thanks, manuel!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 12:57pm tonyc:

Sadly, I think he might be lost. He has a collar, but is really dirty (tho not skinny).
  Tue. 10/2/12 12:58pm Ricardo Montalbani:

We've had that happen. Weird cats just walk in the kitty door, sort of look around, sniff the food, kind of regard you with this "I'm just shopping for humans" look, then leave.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:02pm tonyc:

Umm -- one hour of the show is up, and I'm only 3% of the way to my goal. Hear that sound? it's my cup rattling. Please-o, please-o, please, help a freeform brother out.
  Tue. 10/2/12 1:03pm Ricardo Montalbani:

There's a sub-par Indian restaurant on Burnside where a cat comes in the window, checks out all the diners, then leaves. Inevitably, a patron will ask about it or complain and the server will shrug his shoulders and say it's a neighborhood cat.
  Tue. 10/2/12 1:05pm conrad:

This reminds me of that rock album Yma Sumac made in the late '60s!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:05pm tonyc:

@ Ricardo M: Sounds like my kind of restaurant, actually (except for the sub-par part).
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:07pm tonyc:

Hiya, Conrad!
  Tue. 10/2/12 1:07pm Ricardo Montalbani:

I kind of thought the cat was cute. Sort of added a bit of whimsy to the otherwise bland fare. People actually complained about the cat on Yelp, even though they thought the food was good. I think that's a Portland thing. Not that there was a cat, it just wasn't a quality cat.
  Tue. 10/2/12 1:09pm Ricardo Montalbani:

@Conrad: You mean Miracles? It's been recently reissued on vinyl by a label called The Omni Recording Corporation.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:11pm tonyc:

Hmm. Maybe my cat visitor isn't a stray after all -- he didn't bother to eat the food I put out for him.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:12pm tonyc:

@ Carmichael: Here's your Sensations' Fix fix!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:13pm tonyc:

My feline intruder says he won't leave until some more pledges come in. Please help me get rid of him!
  Tue. 10/2/12 1:14pm conrad:

That's it, 'Miracles'. Songs by Lex Baxter, I believe. Not Italian, but probably the first opera psych rock album. A strangely short-lived genre.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:20pm tonyc:

Many thanks to Manuel de Bruxelles for a very generous pledge!! (And also many thanks to Ricardo M for his much-appreciated pledge earlier in the show.)
  Tue. 10/2/12 1:21pm Carmichael:

Thank you, Tony. I put a little something in petty cash for you, wink wink, nudge nudge ...
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:21pm tonyc:

Wow! Much thanks also to Carmichael! We're on our way....
  Tue. 10/2/12 1:24pm Manuel di Bruxelles:

Grazie, bello a te per il tuo show e per tutti le programi a wfmu ;) bravissimo jaja
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:25pm tonyc:

Grazie a te, caro Manuel!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:26pm tonyc:

(OK, that might be gibberish.)
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:36pm tonyc:

Seems like Harvest Records had an Italian division in the '70s, as a couple of the records I'm playing today came out on Harvest -- but, I think, only in Italy.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:42pm tonyc:

OK, so we've turned 21% -- we can drink now. But why stop here -- let's keep growing! Keep those pledges coming!!
  Tue. 10/2/12 1:46pm Doug Schulkind:

Ok people, you can either pledge to Tony's show — supporting WFMU and the Drummer Stream in the process — or you can figure out what the heck I'm going to play on my show tonight at 6pm (Eastern).

Or of course you can do both.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:50pm tonyc:

How 'bout any one who pledges to my show gets to pick a track that gets played on your show? (Jus' kidding!)
  Tue. 10/2/12 1:50pm Brian in UK:

Hello Tony & friends, do I get a whiff of Premiata Forneria Marconi though if memory serves they were on ELPs Manticore.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 1:53pm tonyc:

Hey Brian in UK! Yeah, PFM were mega-stars in Italy, so I'm sure they influenced plenty of other bands.
  Tue. 10/2/12 1:57pm Brian in UK:

Doug did you see that Eric Hobsbawn the eminent historian passed away yesterday.

Yet none of the obits mention that he was a great Lord Buckley fan.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:00pm tonyc:

Yep -- Eric Hobsbawm AND Barry Commoner. A bad week for old lefties.
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:04pm Brian in UK:

I can never understand how anyone can be an historian when you were not there. We have enough trouble with modern day history getting the facts right especially when national security in invoked.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:06pm tonyc:

All reality is provisional. (My heavy comment of the day -- worth a pledge, no?)
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:08pm Veronica:

Glad I'v found time to tune in! BTW Die Schachtel is about to reissue Luciano Cilio in double LP. Saluti from an Italian in Brooklyn who's about to pledge something.
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:09pm Brian in UK:

You may have come across these chaps Tony. Saw them supporting & backing Richard Buckner a while ago. Most efficacious.
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:10pm Doug Schulkind:

Hey dear listeners, do not let Tony's show end today without his total reaching 25% (or even higher!). All it will take is one more $15 pledge to get to that 1/4 mark.

Slow and steady will win this race for Tony C and the WFMU!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:12pm tonyc:

Thanks so much for your pledge, Veronica! Italian-American Brooklyn salutes you!
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:12pm Brass Knuckles:

Damn. Didn't even know it was fundraiser time again.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:13pm tonyc:

Hey, Brass Knuckles! It's silent fundraiser time -- fundraising via mind control!
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:14pm Ricardo Montalbani:

You're at 33 1/3! Someone kick it up to 45, then 78! It'll sound funny!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:14pm tonyc:

@ Brian: Will check el linko in a sec.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:16pm tonyc:

BIG thanks to listeners John and Danko for your generous pledges!!!
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:16pm Hugo:

Hobsbawm (Obstbaum?) was also a jazz critic for the New Statesman, reputable leftist weekly, in the 1950s. A man of many talents.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:20pm tonyc:

@ Brian redux: Don't know Sacri Cuori -- will check 'em out post-show. Thanks!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:22pm tonyc:

We made -- passed -- 45%! Let's go back to the future by reaching 78 RPM -- er, percent. Thanks everybody!!!
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:24pm Ricardo Montalbani:

Faster! Make the record go faster!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:32pm tonyc:

I've always sort of thought of XX Century Zorro as an Italian equivalent of the Amos/ El Voag/ Homosexuals camp.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:34pm tonyc:

Only half an hour left for today's show -- would love to get in a few more pledges! Why not pledge for XX Century Zorro -- that would surely be the first time that ever happened!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:39pm tonyc:

Don't forget: This is only week one of my three-week Italian special. There'll be time for all your favorites.
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:46pm Ricardo Montalbani:

I feel like I'm in a Mondo film.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:46pm tonyc:

Assuming your brain wasn't permanently damaged by that XX Century Zorro stuff, why not consider making a pledge to support station, stream, and show? It'd be much, much appreciated!
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:48pm listener james from westwood:

thought that last cut was gonna break into a hoompa track, a la the ones ken plays, but that's a scandinavian art form.
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:49pm Veronica:

I think my brain was permanently damaged, soo good thing I already pledged. Was it a single vinyl side?
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:51pm Doug Schulkind:

Tony has only scraped a few layers of DNA off the top of Italian Rock. Next week he will surely poke around a vital organ or two.

Coming up in about three hours here on the Drummer Stream (6pm Eastern), I will be back with an hour of Japanese "jazz" (whatever that is) on the Tuesday edition of Give the Drummer Some.

Jesse Kaminsky had a computer meltdown yesterday, so his Kaminsky Kamoutsky show tonight at 7pm is in question.

Not in question is the virtual conveyor belt of fabulous artists lined up to entertain you here on your 24-hour Give the Drummer Radio stream:

Urs Blöchlinger Tettet
Dean-Trovesi Double Quarter (more Italians!)
Rodolfo y Su Típica
Mestre Cupijó
Anne O'Neill
The Last Town Chorus
Riley Crabtree
Wade Mainer
Abbie Neal & Her Ranch Girls
Messer Für Frau Müller
The Epics
Kishore Kumar
Sid Catlett
Fats Waller
Jimmie Lunceford
Basil Tone Drifters
and more
and more
and eternally more...

And one MORE pledge of $15 to get Tony to 50%!!!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:52pm tonyc:

@ Veronica: Yes, -- there is a Santa Claus .. I mean, yes, it was a single LP side. Thanks again for your pledge!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:52pm tonyc:

Hey, I like the number 46 -- but I like 64 even better. How 'bout some last-minute pledges, peeps?
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:53pm northguineahills:

Thought I'd chime in and say hello. Excellent set. Been here for the last 75 minutes.
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:56pm tonyc:

Thanks, northguineahills! (And a belated hello!)
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 2:56pm tonyc:

One last pledge would make my day!!
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:57pm kat330:

TY, Tony, and to Doug for bringing the stream to us!
Philo and I plan to renew our Mouse of Today pledge on last year's anniversary date in mid-December, so nothing else before nor during the 2013 marathon drive. This time, however, we know to distribute our pledge to designated programs, which will include the DJs who have shown via playlist comments and/or email exchange they actually appreciate us as listeners. We'll probably pledge equal amounts to eight shows -- coincidentally four on WFMU and four on GTDR -- with a minor boost of pledge #9 to 7SD, our longtime "gateway" program. And this concludes our "The More You Know" PSA. :)
  Tue. 10/2/12 2:59pm listener james from westwood:

loved the first italia-fest of three! a fine tues to all, and see you tonight for the gtds-fest!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 3:00pm tonyc:

Big thanks to Listener James for bringing us to 50%!! GO STREAM!!
  Tue. 10/2/12 3:01pm kat330:

And, yes, Tony, yours *will* indeed be one of the GTDR four!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 3:01pm tonyc:

And thanks, Kat, for thinking of us streamer/dreamers!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 3:02pm tonyc:

See you next week, everybody -- thanks for the pledges and comments, and for listening! Stay tuned to the stream, and to Doug and Jesse's shows. Viva Italia!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 3:03pm Doug Schulkind:

Massive gooey gobs of love to LJFW, Veronica, Danko, Carmichael, Manuel, Rich, kat330 and ALL you big-eared dudes and dudesses. You are appreciated!
  Tue. 10/2/12 3:04pm Ricardo Montalbani:

Thanks for a wonderful show, Tony! Ciao!
Avatar Tue. 10/2/12 3:06pm tonyc:

Ciao, Ricardo -- and everyone else! Remember to pledge for Doug and Jesse later today, and for the stream the rest of the week.
