Bryce is always trying to get Kurt to do Bryce's closing legal ID etc. What's up with that?
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:04pm DCE:

...and the scratchy record of the week is....
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:04pm sFrances from VA:

Happy Friday, y'all! Kurt: thanks for a great soundtrack while I get chores done around the house!

Authentic Late-Vinyl Crackles
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:05pm DCE:

...from the 80s? vinyl's last stand! until the 2010s!
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:05pm Wikipedia:

In Haitian Vodou, Papa Legba is the intermediary between the loa and humanity. He stands at a spiritual crossroads and gives (or denies) permission to speak with the spirits of Guinee, and is believed to speak all human languages.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:08pm Cecile:

this is defintely a low point for Elton, he sounds tired. The year before his comeback...
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:09pm DCE:

I can't say I remember that Elton John song, but he didn't sound tired to me. He sounded stuck in 1977, but not tired.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:10pm spirits of anagram:

Papa Bagel stands at the crossroads of butter and cream cheese.
Papa Gable stands at the crossroads of Jean Harlow and Vivien Leigh.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:11pm Cecile:

It was the B-side to "Blue Eyes".
Non-album. From the awrful Jump Up! album.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:11pm Cecile:

I mean from that era.
Not a good time for E.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:18pm steve:

sweet mashup
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:33pm Jaca Pwal Adamu:

Bashkirov angst.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:36pm Minnesota Jeff:

Hello. Have a good day.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:37pm Caryn:

I'm currently watching Peter Sellers dance. This is kinda working as the accompanying music.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:43pm G:

Anyone got IDs on the gif celeb(?) threesome? I don't know my ancient celebs by look all that well...
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:44pm Caryn:

Upper left corner looks slightly like Lois Maxwell, but could be someone else. That's Petula Clark on the right. Not sure about bottom left.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:45pm oooooooold one:

Petula Clark.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:46pm Caryn:

@G: Ooh, I think they're all Petula. Just found the top left pic and it is of Petula, so presume the bottom left is too.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:50pm Caryn:

Yep, found bottom left pic too.
Avatar    Fri. 11/16/12 3:52pm DJKG:

hi everyone! and yes, petula party. she turned 80 yesterday.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:53pm jaca Pwal Adamu:

cage-ian solitary
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:53pm G:

There ya go. The outro tune, and she turned 80 yesterday. Mystery solved.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:53pm Caryn:

So, Kurt, you gonna be playing some extra Petula today?
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:54pm Cecile:

80! Wow! Happy Birthday, Pet!
Avatar    Fri. 11/16/12 3:54pm DJKG:

extra petula in a manner of speaking, yes.
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:55pm G:

a set would be like uh "Pet Songs", right? ;)
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:57pm Caryn:

Man, I didn't realise how much French-language stuff Petula recorded. The stuff one google search will unearth...
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:58pm Droll:

The GIF background reads "PC 80".
  Fri. 11/16/12 3:59pm Caryn:

Of course, taking your cue from the Brian Jones jingle for Rice Crispies on the WFMU main page, you could dig up Petula's Coca Cola jingle and go nuts.
  Fri. 11/16/12 4:00pm Cecile:

wow. and she's been married for over 50 years!
  Fri. 11/16/12 4:00pm G:

She was a known item in French pop well before Downtown...

Her wiki page has a recent (2012) pic....
  Fri. 11/16/12 4:01pm Caryn:

The Spanish-language records would also be interesting to hear.
  Fri. 11/16/12 4:06pm G:

Maybe around late summer 2010 (??) "People Like Us" did an all-"Downtown" show, with the various non-English adaptations she released etc...
  Fri. 11/16/12 4:10pm G:

bad memory -- aug 18, 2010, not a show but a set -- french and german "downtowns" as openers
  Fri. 11/16/12 4:14pm Jaca Pwal Adamu:

Satie please ,,,
  Fri. 11/16/12 4:21pm sweet cheri:

  Fri. 11/16/12 4:29pm steve:

i missed the introduction story but this is very pleasing... what's the part that doesn't sound like a piano?
Avatar    Fri. 11/16/12 4:31pm DJKG:

it's all piano!
  Fri. 11/16/12 4:58pm Jaca Pwal Adamu:

Merci Jacques for playing for us today
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:01pm Carmichael:

Kurt, my man, how you doin'? I'm likin' the sound, Jacques. Hi everyone.
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:04pm Andrew Waterloo:

I love everything about this.
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:07pm Doug:

Dean!
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:08pm Carmichael:

Anyone feel like a drinky poo?
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:08pm Caryn:

Deano & Peggy! Woohoo!
Avatar    Fri. 11/16/12 5:10pm DJKG:

hi carm and everyone else! thanks for tuning in.
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:11pm Doug:

I just happened to be drinking a martini when Dean came on ... coincidence? I think not.
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:11pm Caryn:

You know, you seldom hear the word "trousseau" in song lyrics. Nicely done.
Avatar    Fri. 11/16/12 5:12pm DJKG:

doug, no way is that a coincidence!
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:19pm Caryn:

For some reason, that Depeche Mode VW ad makes my bile rise.
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:23pm Carmichael:

Jesus, I thought this was Cher when I first heard it.
Avatar    Fri. 11/16/12 5:25pm DJKG:

hahahahahha! cher and diamanda need to do a duet!
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:30pm Carmichael:

Here is the ultimate Petula Clark medley: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyOuDGqHY1Q
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:31pm Caryn:

Yay, Czech "Downtown"!
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:32pm Caryn:

You know, Helena also covered "I Only Want to Be With You".
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:35pm Caryn:

Interestingly, "Pátá" means "fifth". Hmm, I wonder what the full translated lyrics are about?
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:37pm Caryn:

Hmm, now I want to dig up this MLK lecture series.
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:45pm Carmichael:

Oh take off, eh.
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:48pm Doug:

Holy crap ... someone who knows something about music talking about music!
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:50pm Cecile:

ugh. Flash is down.
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:50pm G:

Wow, poor Petula Clark and John Lennon must have felt so *chagrined* to hear the lid ripped off them like this. After she got it translated :-)
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:51pm common:

well this is nice and insane
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:53pm Doug:

I bet that they'd both know exactly what Gould is talking about ...
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:55pm from Quebec:

thanks for this CBC fix Kurt. I don't need to listen to Ideas tonight (yes, it's still on) and can watch mindless pap on TV.
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:57pm common:

i bet doug of course
  Fri. 11/16/12 5:59pm Caryn:

I've taken to belting this song out along with Petula. I think my neighbours are cursing you, Kurt. :)
  Fri. 11/16/12 6:02pm G:

Pet's always big on submediant-mediated modulation to a secondary tonic as part of a Liederkreis-embedded heptatonic social commentary on late-capitalist youth consumerism.
