Nice start for a Sunday night... ends of weekends are always a little blue...
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 9:06pm Dave M.:

Thanks, G. And good evening, everyone.

Good evening DM!!

Hey, bloopy.

EST is now Nov to March. They keep shortening it. Daylight time used to only be during the summer, and now runs most of the year (March to Nov.), because most people work 9-5 and want light in the evening. They don't know or care if it's light at 5AM in the summer, they want an hour of that morning light shifted into the evening when they're awake and off work...
  Sun. 1/13/13 9:29pm JTKMDNY:

Standard Time is when it is not Daylight Savings Time so if you just say "Eastern Time" it will be the applicable time (Standard or Daylight Savings)
  Sun. 1/13/13 9:35pm Droll:

"Standard" time is 3 months long. The non-standard part is 9 months long. Congress decides this, so it should seem obvious.
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 9:36pm G:

I always just say/write Eastern time. You know how many times in online work I've seen people forget whether they actually want/need EST or EDT for months at a time?
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 9:38pm G:

Yes, Droll, Daylight Saving (singular) Time started out 100 years ago as "summer time". It keeps expanding because of many office workers wanting it, or the government sees it (accurately or not) as an energy-saving thing. In England, they call standard time "winter time", which would make much more sense as a term here in the US these days. :-)
  Sun. 1/13/13 9:39pm fred von helsing:

cool stuff
  Sun. 1/13/13 9:43pm Droll:

Computerstuff that read invites and automagicaly schedule them do require all the arcane notation to be correct.
. o O ( Speaking of computers, the one in my oven appears to be malfunctioning... dinner needs attention, back soon )
  Sun. 1/13/13 9:45pm dave:

the durutti column is one of those bands you hear far too rarely and you really can't hear enough of.
  Sun. 1/13/13 9:45pm Andrew Waterloo:

The idea of DST is that you're aligning those who wake up with the clock with those who wake up with the sun
  Sun. 1/13/13 9:46pm JTKMDNY:

Why would you put a computer in the oven?
  Sun. 1/13/13 9:48pm fred von helsing:

Nowadays DST is mainly so kids don't walk to school in the dark. Why not just move around school starting times ?
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 9:50pm G:

Farmers hate the time change twice a year, AW, and that's why a few places in the US don't do it. (For ex., the whole state of AZ.)
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 9:54pm G:

And on a mellotron you can only hold a note or chord for eight seconds max, because that's how long the tape snippet for each note was :-)
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 9:55pm Dave M.:

@G: Correct. 60 inches of tape at 7 1/2 ips!
  Sun. 1/13/13 9:56pm Andrew Waterloo:

I wish Mello Tron was robot they sent into calm riots
  Sun. 1/13/13 9:56pm Droll:

Damnit! I missed the Mellotron part of the show?! Archives. for sure.
What makes Mellotron great is Lawrence Welk strings. It's an irreplaceable melancholy, Chamberlain can't compare. (That, and it's the instrument of choice for Prog)
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 9:56pm G:

Yep, you can always hear 70s mellotron players holding down sustained chords but making sure not to let them go on *too* long :-)
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 9:57pm Dave M.:

@Droll: Just one song, but it did have a bunch of Mellotrons on it.
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 9:58pm Dave M.:

There's an iPhone app called Ellatron where you can get sounds just like a Mellotron. It's hard to play, though. There may be better ones out there.
  Sun. 1/13/13 10:11pm fred von helsing:

@andrew LOL
  Sun. 1/13/13 10:16pm fred von helsing:

you wouldn't consider moving your show to a more europe-friendly time would you ? :)
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 10:18pm Dave M.:

@fvh: It's out of my hands, unfortunately. It's not all that NY-friendly either.
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 10:18pm G:

Come on, fred, it's only about 4:15AM on the continent hahaha
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 10:18pm Dave M.:

Archives!
  Sun. 1/13/13 10:25pm fred von helsing:

archives - check! it's already 525 over here (hellsinki)
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 10:25pm G:

This isn't dead air, it's life support air :-)
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 10:27pm Dave M.:

@G: I thought I was so cool about it that no one would even notice.
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 10:28pm G:

Uh huh, it worked!
  Sun. 1/13/13 10:30pm Droll:

I'm dependent on the archives, but somehow shows on archive seem less like radio and more like a mix tape with someone talking over it.
More than once I freaked out at the station ID because I thought it was the top of the hour but it wasn't.
The comments are like forgotten graffiti, adding to it is like screaming in space nobody will hear.
  Sun. 1/13/13 10:31pm Droll:

Heh, I thought this was going to be a Dear Prudence cover!
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 10:31pm Dave M.:

@G: I knew it!
  Sun. 1/13/13 10:32pm fred von helsing:

It's cool that usually the comments make little sense after an FMU show. They're so bound up with the mood of the show and the particular songs.
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 10:32pm G:

@Droll: I listen to archives if the show topic or focus makes me. Even if I don't listen to every archive, I check out the playlist for interesting items.
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 10:34pm Dave M.:

I have to confess that I like to listen live. But there are always shows that are hard to hear in real time. For me it's the 3-6 a.m. shows.
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 10:36pm Dave M.:

You may not know this, but if someone posts a comment to the playlist after the show's over, the DJ automatically gets an email. So we see every one of those comments
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 10:39pm G:

Often the comments on a show I missed tell me which song(s) to make sure to find and listen to inside the show, if I don't have time to listen to the whole archive.

It's always easy to tell if particular comments on an archived show are about the music that's playing, the mic break, things the music reminded people of, reactions to earlier comments, etc. :-)
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 10:40pm G:

If you missed mellotron earlier, listen up. 1969 mellotron.
  Sun. 1/13/13 10:44pm Droll:

DM, That must be a great random fun generator!

I love the ephemeral nano-blogging unthreaded comments, but I also hope it matures into something where there's some long-term continuity to it. Maybe that just means we get accounts so we can see responses to our comments someday, too.

. o O ( I can never say enough kind things about KC )
  Sun. 1/13/13 10:47pm cubicle carl:

I think the tail end of the Crimson tune is what is officially known as noodling.
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 10:49pm G:

The whole instrumental part was supposedly 100% improvisation. Fripp trimmed out a couple of minutes of it (including the infamous "Surrey with the Fringe" quotation) in a recent remaster, but left the full 1969 version as a bonus track.
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 10:50pm Dave M.:

The tough part will be hitting the stop button just before "In the Court of the Crimson King" starts. It's pretty tight.
  Sun. 1/13/13 10:50pm Droll:

CC, One man's noodling is another man's filler. I say 1) Thankfully an album side is no more than 23 minutes long, limiting damage (unless you're Yes), and 2) I love KC (especially the Belew era)
Avatar Sun. 1/13/13 10:53pm G:

The flute notes in the ballad were mellotron, but I'm not sure there was mellotron in the improv...
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 10:57pm Dave M.:

Right, there's some at the beginning, but I don't think there's any during the long instrumental section.
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 10:58pm Dave M.:

There's so much of it on the rest of the record...
  Sun. 1/13/13 11:00pm Fred:

DJ Shadow .... that beat sounds familiar
  Sun. 1/13/13 11:19pm George of Troy:

Hiya Dave. Made it in for the final third, happy to be basking in the sounds.
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 11:25pm Dave M.:

Hey, George. Welcome.
  Sun. 1/13/13 11:44pm Deep Curtains:

Do you like The Necks?
Avatar    Sun. 1/13/13 11:45pm Dave M.:

I do. I played them on my show just a week or two ago.
