What up, Tony 'n' gang!? What's that Kryon recording called, where can I get it? I sometimes guest dj on a show that features paranormal kookiness, and it would be perfect.
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 12:28pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Fab! The Kryon thing I played was a mix of my own. The spoken part is from a tape I found in a thrift store, called "Kryon: Changes within You." I heavily processed the voice, though.

its sounds like - cinema epics today - last piece reminded me of the interlude music used in Ben Hur (50s film with Charlton Heston)
Avatar    Tue. 7/30/13 12:43pm Rich in Washington:

Kryon's got a bunch of web pages...
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 12:45pm Tony Coulter:

@ Tropical Man: Today's show will be all contemporary classical stuff -- a lot of it electro-acoustic. Hope that won't cause too may listeners to tune out....
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 12:47pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: Aha -- so Kryon still walks among us! The tape I have is more than 20 years old.
Avatar    Tue. 7/30/13 12:48pm Rich in Washington:

I grew up in a bookstore that eventually turned fully into a New Age bookstore, so used to see many, many things like that. Loads and loads of horrible shit on cassette. Now I wished I had some of it.
  Tue. 7/30/13 12:51pm MrFab:

Yep, looks like Kryon is a major industry - recordings, lectures, DVDs. I am in the wrong line of work.

There's free lengthy lecture (some apparently w/music) mp3s on the site. Not sure how much I want to wade thru...
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 12:58pm Tony Coulter:

The convenient thing is that Kryon isn't visible in our plane of being, so lots of people can channel him -- that way, they can keep the racket going forever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/30/13 12:58pm listener james from westwood:

only reason i'll tune out is when i head outta here at 2:30. til then, bring on the electro-acoustic madness.
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 1:01pm Tony Coulter:

Good-o, Listener James! I have noticed listener drop-off in the past when I play a lot of this kind of stuff. But maybe that's a thing of the past....

When I used to do streaming radio from home, I wouldn't refresh the stream's stat page once I hit peak listener. Otherwise I would get in a lather if I had even slightly less listeners. You can't anticipate what people will respond to.

If you're going by comments, maybe we have used up all of our funniest/wittiest lines within the first hour.
Now we're just pacing ourselves.
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 1:33pm Tony Coulter:

I don't worry about it, actually -- just have noticed a pattern over the years when it comes to the kind of stuff I'm playing today. It's fine by me.
Avatar    Tue. 7/30/13 1:38pm Rich in Washington:

This is fantastic! I love tape cutup stuff like this.
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 1:39pm TROPICAL MAN:

UM -
- I find myself really only listening to TC and DO on the GTDS stream. Of the WFMU I hardly listen to anything at all. It may be only 5 minutes of a show.
For me the major problem is you all playing music that is too well known and feely available in other places such as You Tube.
Only those DJs that have original ideas about their playlists, and are not scatterbrained - i.e. one minute its 60s the next some house thing from 93.

Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 1:46pm TROPICAL MAN:

TC -
talking about listener drop off to sharp experimental music - I think its like an endurance test - who can last the course -
Like a line in the Lenny Bruce movie I saw last week -
"Youre such a lovely audience - I wish I could piss on you all!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/30/13 1:54pm Ike:

Excellent show.
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 1:55pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Ike! Glad you like it....
  Tue. 7/30/13 1:55pm MrFab:

Avant experimental stuff doesn't bother me, I like it. The song form can get so predictable and formulaic, even with great songwriters, so this show's a welcome break. It's the hippy-dippy stuff that has me wandering off sometimes. But, hey, can't make everyone happy all the time.
Avatar    Tue. 7/30/13 1:55pm Rich in Washington:

I listen to quite a bit of the GTDR stream, and there are probably five shows that I go way out of my way to listen to (this one being one of them). I personally enjoy the diversity of genres and some of the deeper experimental stuff.
I don't think there are very many GTDR or even WFMU programmers that play well-known or otherwise ubiquitous artists, at least not to these ears.
To each his or her own. I am more into 'difficult listening'. It's just something I dig. I get kind of bored with shows when they go into and stay with pop music formats.
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 1:56pm TROPICAL MAN:

I agree DCE - WFMU is diverse and one of the best online sources for music/radio entertainment.
Its just I don't think you can listen to one show all the way through without getting bored and wanting to hear something else.
Now it maybe that each DJ wants to be eclectic rather than sticking to one theme but then you cannot complain when listeners drop off during a show not wanting to hear something to them that is quite average.
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 2:00pm Tony Coulter:

I'm not sure that "experimental music" is even a valid term anymore -- I just use it for convenience. Some kinds of experimental music have been around so long that they're way past the "experimental" phase -- they have their own fully developed styles and aesthetics, like any other kind of music.
Avatar    Tue. 7/30/13 2:00pm Rich in Washington:

TM: I do know what you mean, in some way. I think in some ways the easy access to all kinds of music allowed by the internet and the 'random' play aspect of MP3 players has ruined our ability to simply listen to what a DJ can serve up to us.
I've found that being my own DJ (via iPod, etc) is no where near as satisfactory as having a tasteful programmer serve up a show. It's the difference between the sandwich you made vs the sandwich someone made for you.
I used to be really into listening to a gigantic library on my iPod and eventually found myself jabbing the 'next' button like a monkey hitting a button for a treat. It got old, eventually.
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 2:00pm TROPICAL MAN:

Mr Fab,
I am from the second school and was brought up to listening to John Martyn, the Grateful Dead and Pink Floyd rather than John Cage, Stockhausen and Throbbing Gristle.
I do however enjoy it every so often when TC plays some mild experimental stuff.
Its when he plays the sink gurgling sounds for 45 minutes that does my head in!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/30/13 2:06pm northguineahills:

I'm still listening to my physical musical media in alphabetical order, and am still stuck in Yo la Tengo. I do, download maybe 1-2 albums per week.
  Tue. 7/30/13 2:09pm MrFab:

I know what you mean, Tony, about the phrase "experimental music". "Avant Garde" implies that it's at the lead and soon everyone will follow, and that's not always true. "New Music" is just silly, but gets used alot. I like "alternative classical" ("alt-classical"?) but that phrase is not catching on...
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 2:09pm Tony Coulter:

I'm drowning in physical media, which I listen to in totally random order. I've got lots of downloaded music in an external hard drive, but I never listen to any of it.
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 2:09pm TROPICAL MAN:

you are right our use of the internet, You Tube, blogs and ipods have given us access to a huge library of stuff that say 15 years ago was only known to those with vast record collections.
As a result we have become spoilt for choice and I find myself running aound the internet downloading every wild and weird thing that appears.
Jump back 15 years we only had the limited stuff that was available in record shops and what radio shows would play.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/30/13 2:10pm northguineahills:

Still don't have an iPod, or any music on my phone. (yes, I want a cookie damn it!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/30/13 2:11pm northguineahills:

(but I do have over a year of mp3s on my hard drives, but, I only touch it when I'm too busy to bring out and care for the vinyl/cassettes/cdrs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/30/13 2:18pm DCE:

I'm at the point where downloading radio shows is leaving me very little time to play physical media.
Avatar Tue. 7/30/13 2:21pm Tony Coulter:

@ Mr. Fab: Good point re "avant garde" -- would never use that term. It comes out of the silly notion that there's some kind of forward march of history. Also agree that "new music" is goofy -- particularly when applied to stuff that's 40 or 50 years old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/30/13 2:26pm Stanley:

@DCE - me too. In fact I seem to only listen to CDs when I'm in the car. Nowadays WFMU gives me all my listening needs. I've tried listening to other stations (here in the UK) but they are so bland or I'm hearing records that I have heard hundreds of times already. I am not as musically educated as other esteemed listeners and for me I'd say 90% of what I hear on WFMU is quite new to me. And I love challenging stuff - stuff that Tony plays and also Fabio and Kurt on the other side.
Avatar    Tue. 7/30/13 2:26pm Rich in Washington:

I'll bet I have a radio show of one form or another playing probably 70% of the hours I am here at work.
Unfortunately, my work duties have changed to the point where I can no longer expect to listen to them uninterrupted as I used to (many meetings and/or people coming into my office).
But it's still a lot.
