Love the Comments Board Can't Believe I got Through.

Fear of failure settling in.

This SHOULD be in my wheelhouse of topics - I used to race calculators in my youth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:02pm Carmichael:

Is Shazam an elephant? Or that midget that danced to Clam Caravan on the live Spinal Tap dvd?

this show is already a success, if the past 2 minutes are the best part

Ken! Aaaaaandy! I'm trying to get a disc golf course built on Jacob Riis Park -- can you advertise my facebook page? I dont need money, i just need the attention of your listeners! www.facebook.com...
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:04pm Danne D:

Very appropriate to have a Shazam theme the week after Jim Nabors sang at his last Indy 500.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:05pm PMD:

I know why the Cajun bird sings?

Info from the newsletter:

"Can You Identify a Song Faster Than Shazam Can?

Tonight, it's yet another installment of our never-ending series, Andy Breckman Discovers the Internet. This eveing it is episode 421: John Henry versus the Shazam Engine.

Or as Andy prefers to refer to it, ShazamaramaBingBangaRooaRama.

Ken and Andy will take one caller at a time to see if they can identify a song faster than the song recognition app Shazam. To keep it fair, we wont be choosing super obscure songs. In fact, we will let you choose the overall musical genre you know best.For every listener who beats Shazam, Andy will give $20 to his favorite charity which, these days, is Mothers Against Masturbatoriums, but that could change."

like Sammy Davis Jr says in MacArthur Park....

Michele should chime on on the pronunciation. She says kit-ten.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:09pm Carmichael:

So far, this show is an elephant.

There really could be a great T-shirt with an image of Dead Air Gulch

Why the caged bird sings? To get to the other side.

very nice painting of the two in the email blast (is that still a term?) i assume it was chris t's significant other who painted it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:13pm Carmichael:

Now I'm pissed off at the old armory. I say we go kick their asses.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:16pm Marcel M:

Is the 7 second delay going to ruin this again?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:19pm Carmichael:

Speaking of cool music apps, try TouchTunes. Most of the juke boxes in your town use the service, and you can control them via the app. There's nothing better than sitting around playing with your cell phone while people feed money into the juke. You can jump their selection and play something off the wall. Watch 'em go crazy.

Egregious technical errors - 1

Hard to hear but to be fair Depeche Mode not my wheelhouse :)

Hunting High and Low woulda been tough but fair (and I woulda lost that one too probably)
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:22pm Marcel M:

Well done anyway Danne
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:22pm Carmichael:

Nice try, Danne. You know the game's rigged, right?
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:22pm Marcel M:

I'm breaking my volunteering cherry this weekend.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:22pm northguineahills:

2/3rds of the time I use Shazam, it gets no result. When it does get a result, it takes a good 20 seconds at least. (of course, I usually use it when WFMU djs are are taking their sweet ass time on updating the playlist).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:23pm Carmichael:

I'll take Gay Bar Music for $500, Alex.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:23pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I have found that Jonesy has the only Shazammable show on FMU. Anything else and you're pretty much out of luck...
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:23pm Marcel M:

I use it at the same moments Northguinea, and it also doesn't work often.
  Wed. 5/28/14 6:25pm P-90:

@ Danne: Wait, Whaaaat?
Has Jim Nabors been banned from singing at any more Indy 500s?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:25pm Carmichael:

I use SoundHound for all my ID'ing needs. It's just a different flavor of vanilla, I guess.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:26pm Danne D:

@Carmichael lol - if Andy were buying the free records then I would think it wasn't probably rigged ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:28pm Foolbert:

Any word with the suffix '-ed' can be pronounced using '-èd' in order to maintain the metre of a poem or of a line of dialogue, especially if it were written long ago enough that this was the way it were pronounced, as well as in order to be pretentious. The pronunciation 'wingèd', beside being familiar to us from the show, might also be relatively common from a proper recitation of Marvell's 'To His Coy Mistress', which has the well-known couplet
'But at my back I always hear
Time's wingèd chariot hurrying near'.

More usually, though, if you're not trying to be a jerk or to make a point, it isn't pronounced as 'cagèd', and Maya Angelou didn't pronounce it that way.

Oh, and

I know why the caged bird sings, ah me,
When his wing is bruised and his bosom sore,
When he beats his bars and would be free;
It is not a carol of joy or glee,
But a prayer that he sends from his heart's deep core,
But a plea, that upward to Heaven he flings –
I know why the caged bird sings.
---Paul Laurence Dunbar

@Marcel that's great :) enjoy volunteering hope to see you there

@P-90 Jim Nabors his retiring from the gig - he's had some health issues in recent years.

(as yet I am not volunteering, but I may offer to if there still is a need and I think I can swing it). Would be volunteers should check in with Scott@wfmu.org as I do think they still need folks!
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:29pm Danne D:

I know why the google-ed search sings
  Wed. 5/28/14 6:30pm Allison T.:

KEN IS WRONG.

There is at least one instance in which the pronunciation of "caged" should be "cage-ed"! In THE TAMING OF THE SHREW, there is a speech made by a Lord in which he says: "And twenty caged nightingales do sing..." In order to have the proper iambic pentameter scansion, you need to pronounce it "cage-ED". Go ahead and give it a whirl.

(Also, I'm a female record collector... see y'all at the record fair!)
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:30pm Danne D:

Pro-tip: If Andy suggests you are on his side, you should quickly clarify that you are on Ken's side. Not being on Ken's side usually gets you hung up on :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:31pm asb:

Soundhound's supposed to recognize singing.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:31pm Marcel M:

This doesn't work... and live music doesn't/shouldn't either.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:31pm Danne D:

They should Shazam "Railroad Bill"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:31pm Nick the Bard:

I'm going to start playing Abadox or Xevious if people don't start calling in
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:32pm Danne D:

How about Abadox/Xevious mashup?

I count that as a win.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:32pm Carmichael:

I'm going to start playing Solitaire if no one calls in.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:33pm Marcel M:

Lol carmichael
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:34pm Nick the Bard:

i don't think anyone's bothered to rom hack abadoz or xevious together yet, boring ass super mario bros ones exist though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/28/14 6:35pm Carmichael:

Ed's an ass kisser.
  Wed. 5/28/14 6:37pm Robert:

What the heck kind of algorithm could this thing be using?
  Wed. 5/28/14 6:37pm P-90:

Bet there's a band out there named "No Match Found", or there should be
  Wed. 5/28/14 6:40pm Robert:

Is it called "Cutting In & Out"?
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:41pm Danne D:

They really should play John Henry by Johnny Cash as one of the picks.

i'm so psyched i won a free record, but i wasn't exactly planning on going to the record fair. if i'm allowed to pass along my free record to another listener i'll do it : )
  Wed. 5/28/14 6:44pm P-90:

@ Danne: Haha! I was thinking "John Henry" too
  Wed. 5/28/14 6:44pm Robert:

Can it handle records played at the wrong speed? How about backwards?
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:44pm northguineahills:

Field Recordings? That would be nice.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:45pm Danne D:

Congrats Amanda :)
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:45pm Danne D:

I gotta head out :)
Have a great night everyone!
Be nice to Nick.
Avatar Wed. 5/28/14 6:47pm amanda c:

thanks danne! i was nice to nick- meaning, i kept it short and didn't noticeably piss him off.
  Wed. 5/28/14 6:47pm conrad:

Ken: Paisley Underground/Paisley Park are two different things. LA psych revivalists/Prince's label. Tho as the caller pointed out, there was a crossover: Prince writing a song for the Bangles.

i'm definitely watching True Identity... but the torrent is so slow it might take a few days.

All you need to know about True Identity. en.wikipedia.org...
