it was a nasty little green snake called Yig. Its evil owner told me it was gentle, and since I wasn't afraid of snakes, I held him when he gave him to me. Then the little bastard stuck in all his fangs. It felt like four hypodermic needles meeting in my bones. Another friend pried him off me. I was pretty PO'd, especially since Yig's owner laughed heartily the whole time.

Good morning.
Here are couple of instances showing how WFMU can be sort of weirdly tentacular in the world:
I'm looking for a certain kind of music the other day, and I find the British Library collection of field recordings, and I wonder if Drummer has checked those clips, and I find in his offered links that, of course, he's been there and has recommended it, and what else is in those links? Lord Buckley, and I decide to expand my light familiarity with him, so I read a bit on an LB site and idly check out the art on one of his album covers, and it gets me to who/what? Irwin and the books he's put together on artist Jim Flora.
Later that day, shortly after hearing "Ding" on Ken's show and then pointing a commenter inquiring about it on Duane's show to Ken's playlist, I was downtown and ran into one of the musicians who created the track.
I don't know if any of that makes sense as described, but there was a funny kind of woof-moo weave goin' on. ....Even while there's this vein contrary to the common path & note crossings in which I find almost NO awareness of WFMU among most people I speak to 'round here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/5/14 10:49am northguineahills:

I have a few Anthony Braxton records of him doing jazz standards.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/5/14 10:49am doca:

I thought the same, @Cecile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/5/14 10:51am tikk:

I remember benig about 16; my friend and I were stoned and accidentally heard Anthony Braxton on college radio--far less gorgeous and more discordant than this, which is clearly the exception to the rule--and our minds pretty much imploded.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/5/14 10:51am Cecile:

He does a KILLER version of Red Top. It's excellent and funny.
Avatar Fri. 9/5/14 10:51am listener james from westwood:

@Cecile: Awesome. You have good circles.
Re: little green snakes: I used to listen to the soundtrack of the musical "Take Me Along" incessantly as a kid. Don't know why. Dug musicals. Here's one performed in the original cast by the Great One, Jackie Gleason: "Little Green Snake," in which he shares, w/ a guy hung the hell over, his own experience w/ the DTs:

Did you see my green snake?
My little green snake?
Was he hangin' from the ceiling like a fly does?
Did he wipe away a tear and ask where I was?
In his heart he's such a gentle little cuss.

Did you see the green man?
And the tattooed Indi-an?
Now did you know their names are Muck and Merkle?
See, I know this 'cause I'm in the inner circle.
I am one of them, and now, you're one of us.

Oh, the flying alligators are delightful,
I would see those little fellows in the hall.
And when I was in my cups,
They'd lick my hands like pups,
But the one I miss at twilight most of all...

Is my little green snake
In the little blue tree.
When my world starts gettin' hazy,
There's one question drives me crazy:
When my little snake gets drunk, does he see me?

From memory, so I may have missed a syllable here & there. You're lucky I'm not there or I'd have inflicted it on you all in song.

Wiki:
Darius Carlos Rucker was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, where his family history goes back generations. His single mother, Carolyn, a nurse, raised him with his three sisters and two brothers. According to Rucker, his father was never around, and Rucker only saw him before church on Sundays. His father was in a gospel band called The Rolling Stones. Rucker has said that he had a typical Southern, African-American upbringing. His family attended church every Sunday and was economically poor, and at one point, his mother, her two sisters, his grandmother, and 14 children were all living in a three-bedroom home. But he says that he looks back on his childhood with very fond memories.
