Hi Irene. Hi gang. Happy Monday. Sean - they found your king in a parking lot I see.

Good afternoon, Irene and all.

Hey Drew, you made me think, yes, Richard The Third was found buried under a car park!
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:10pm kat330:

The road to royalty is paved with ill intentions? Or, they paved over King Richard and put up a parking lot?
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:11pm Cory:

kat330, definately #2
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:12pm Va Van:

Stopping by to say hi to you Irene, and folks. This will be an archive catch up for me. Have a wonderful day everyone!
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:12pm kat330:

Wonder if in today's wintry-weathered walkabout we'll hear any of Kate Bush' 50 Word for Snow? :)

This is a nice track

G'dafternoon Miss Irene. Nice to see you last night on Miss Monica's playlist. Hope you enjoyed the San Antonio Rose sing-along.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:17pm Parq:

Sean in the UK, what's really embarrassing is the number of parking tickets Rich-3 is going to be stuck with.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:21pm kat330:

Guess it required some real skull-duggery to uncover the remains of a day long gone.

When I was pointed to the Richard story this morning by glenn, it reminded me of a dream I had some years back, which only left me the memory of three place names: Leicester, Uxbridge and Cambria.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:23pm Sigurdur:

Sonds like territories my ancestors just 2 own
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:23pm Irene Trudel:

Funny thing is, I didn't know England had car parks back in King Richard'sday.

@Sigurdur: Are you from Iceland?
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:25pm Sigurdur:

Yes
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:26pm BDR:

Many thanks for Bela.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:27pm kat330:

I've always been curious about that dream, and those names have remained a mystery to me. Wonder what they'll eventually uncover in Uxbridge or Cambria? ;)

And I concur with the Bartok -- thank you!
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:30pm Stevel:

This cover is a keeper.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:31pm Sean in Bristol UK:

This has to be the best version of "Eye of the tiger" ever, marvellous stuff
  Mon. 2/4/13 12:32pm Marmalade Kitty:

nice one
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:32pm anarchivist:

Yeah, this is pretty great.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:32pm Parq:

So there's a label called "Ba Da Bing!" that puts out this kind of music? Wonder if there's a label that puts out Jersey Shore bar bands and calls itself "Gentle Forest Lullaby".
  Mon. 2/4/13 12:33pm outofluck70:

I think the playlist is a bit out of sync, no?
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:36pm glenn:

it's a good thing they didn't find ricky in scunthorpe..
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:42pm kat330:

Thanks for the newsflash, glenn. Spent all of Sunday in a news media blackout and watched a marathon of "The IT Crowd" instead. What fun!
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:46pm Irene Trudel:

@outofluck70: Try refreshing your browser. It may also be out of sync if I am not quick enough to type the song in.

Yeah, a lot of starring going on here.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:16pm kat330:

@Sean: Just read you try to hear Glen Jones' show. I always enjoy his "aw ovah the woild" station ID tag. On Christmas Eve while listening to a local NPR station, I thought I'd discovered where he got it from. Listen to the first few seconds of the first audio clip here:

Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:19pm Lewis:

It is pretty remarkable to listen to Jonsey and X-Ray chat away. so smooth and flowing...
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:20pm kat330:

The word has come back he did not take it from Satchmo, however. Guess great minds think alike across the miles and the decades. :)
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:20pm Mike East:

at the exact moment you were mentioning the American Songbook series, I was taking a booking in our studios for the American Songbook series.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:26pm glenn:

mike, if you were smoking gouda at the same time, THAT would be really weird
  Mon. 2/4/13 1:26pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Kat, one year I would love to go to their post New Year's shindig, sounds a riot each time I have listened to that particular show
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:26pm kat330:

@Mike: Tying two threads above very loosely together: Listening to the first songs on Glen Jones' show yesterday, there was one I didn't know but said to Philo it was similar to The Church or in that era. VERY next song played was The Church's "Under The Milky Way." It was a wooooooh moment.
  Mon. 2/4/13 1:26pm drewo:

Love the new Jason Lytle record.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:30pm Irene Trudel:

@Mike, love those weird coincidences. That's a great series, by the way.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:31pm Mike East:

@kat - thanks for the info! I was wondering who that song was, cuz I wanna learn it. Couldn't google cuz Lucie was in my arms at the time. The coincidences keep lining up!
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:33pm kat330:

@Mike: Awww, give her a warm hug from So IN for me! So you're going to learn how to make the guitar sound like bagpipes? ;)
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:33pm Mike East:

Yeah, Irene - they come to us every year which is a godsend cuz its our slow season. Their production coordinator is really great, too. He hooked me up with some Mavis Staples tix.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:34pm Mike East:

iirc - Bonnie Prince Billy was looking for an obscure amp that they haven't made for 20 years. I could not track one down for him.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:36pm glenn:

which amp?
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:37pm Cory:

okay, this is getting odd. I just got an email from the Nelsonville Music Festival about adding Mavis Staples to this year's line-up.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:41pm Mike East:

@glenn - MusicMan 110 or 210, I think.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:43pm kat330:

Maybe the Mayans were off by six weeks or so.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:43pm kat330:

[But Don't Panic.]
  Mon. 2/4/13 1:45pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Irene, where are Yppah from, I really like the couple of tracks you have played
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:45pm Cory:

I always get nervous when a fellow Hoosier tells me not to panic.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:48pm kat330:

What part are you from?
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:49pm glenn:

damn. i just happen to have one right here.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:50pm Cory:

NE, just south of Fort Wayne
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:50pm glenn:

kidding. though the bass player from billy talent did offer my friend 8 grand for his music man bass.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:52pm kat330:

@Cory: Just across from Louisville, KY, here. All hail to Hoosiers! :)
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:54pm Cory:

sweet, I've family down around Rising Sun. Absolutely beautiful down there.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:54pm Dave E:

How come my playlist only shows 1 song when I've favorited many?
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:56pm Mike East:

@glenn - I can get ya a musicman bass, but everyone I called for that amp either laughed at me, or said they got rid of theirs 10 years ago.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:56pm Dave E:

Nevermind, it's me.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:56pm kat330:

Richard T.!
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:57pm kat330:

@Cory: Yes, at least we have some topography thanks to the glaciers leaving the Knobs in their wake. ;)

I always told my therapist there wasn't enough Robyn Hitchcock on WFMU!
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:10pm Dave E:

So this is Martha Wainwright . . . never heard her before. Have seen Sloan in concert many times though.

@Dave you'll have to speak up, I'm wearing a towel

i always tell robyn hitchcock there aren't enough therapists on wfmu. except for ken and andy.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:12pm kat330:

Irene, this set is phenomenally lovely. Thank you!
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:13pm Dave E:

I wondered why I always felt weird after listening to Ken and Andy's show . . .
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:13pm Cory:

Well friends, have a wonderful day. Irene, thanks for the great show.

Don't forget Tom, Glenn.

This is a sweet piece, love your show Irene, it is a wonderful way to start the week.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:15pm βrian:

I'm pretty sure this is Debussy, not Chopin
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:16pm kat330:

What's all this about towels? Sure isn't the sort of music piped into the boy's locker room.

A hitchhiker always carries a towel.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:18pm glenn:

i gotta say, just looking at somebody picking the guitar with their teeth makes my jaw ache. what the hell are ya thinkin'? i do love earl hooker, though.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:19pm kat330:

Did Andy have to hitchhike home last Wednesday? I asked Ken to reassure me James arrived and so did Andy, safe and sound at home, but K. never answered.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:20pm MuttonChops:

Thanks Irene for the tunes. Makes me yearn for a warm chocolate chip cookie and a full tumbler of whiskey in some hidden corner of a Brooklyn hideout watching the snowfall.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:20pm Dave E:

I hope he had a towel.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:20pm kat330:

Wow. OK, Kenzo, if you're lurking, is there any way we can favorite a DJ's specific set of tunes? THIS one's a surefire candidate for that.
  Mon. 2/4/13 2:21pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

XTC, fab, what a great set this is
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:21pm Dave E:

@MuttonChops: That sounds perfectly delightful.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:22pm Eyepatch Fox:

Otherwise he'd be decidedly unhoopy.
  Mon. 2/4/13 2:22pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Kat, you are onto something here, would be great to favourite this set
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:22pm Dave E:

The Star next to the date and show title does that doesn't it?
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:23pm Eyepatch Fox:

Yeah, man. Just click on the star next to the date of the setlist.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:24pm Irene Trudel:

That's correct. The little star next to the song title is click-able and you can favorite it.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:25pm Dave E:

Doesn't look like the favoriting section is working . . .
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:26pm Dave E:

Irene - is that a picture of u?
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:26pm kat330:

@Eyepatch Fox: That would be for the whole show -- which will warrant one today, believe me -- but sometimes a set within a show is most star-worthy.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:27pm Irene Trudel:

No, but it is a picture of my mom, Lois Beverley Woodbury, age about 1&1/2. It's one of my favorite photos ever!
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:29pm kat330:

@Sean: I mentioned that a week or more ago, but it's certainly not a top priority of things needing "finessing."
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:29pm kat330:

Oh, it is?! I always thought that was you. It *is* really wonderful.

Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:52pm kat330:

It's like a cross between a wooden flute and a kazoo -- it seems his voice is making the sounds as much as the instrument?
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:54pm BSI:

Kat: That would seem very Cherryish, for sure. It's a great sound. I've been trying to be a completist collector scumbag of his material for ages -- finally scored a decent vinyl copy of his collab. with Gato Barbieri, and it's a treat.
  Mon. 2/4/13 2:55pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Okay, my turn, I think. It was yesterday, really, but I had major computer problems all freaking day. Hopefully today things are all better and I can enjoy!

Loving the lead off track :)
Avatar    Wed. 2/6/13 1:34pm Va Van:

Okay trying again. More computer issues. Sigh.
Avatar    Wed. 2/6/13 3:28pm Va Van:

Wow!! THANK YOU Irene for the Chopin by Maria Bachman & Adam Neiman! WONDERFUL!!
Avatar    Thu. 2/7/13 8:22am Va Van:

Okay, so it was indeed Debussy. I knew I knew the tune, just from hearing Joshua Bell play it, but didn't realize the composer was listed wrong here. Wonderful all the same though :)
