Listener comments!

Probably the most un-Cecil Taylor-like Cecil Taylor you will hear...
  Wed. 10/1/14 3:10pm Spankyflop:

Really? 10 Minutes in and no comments?
  Wed. 10/1/14 3:11pm Listening Out There:

Spanky: I wrote my note partly to see if comments was broken :) At least you and I are here....

I guess the October fundraiser is now a permanent fixture. No longer a "we're in a bind this year!" emergency.

Why not go both dog and cat for mascot instead of the dog and cow? WF Mew. Oh. That's why. It doesn't make sense.

Until Uncle Andy's toy company takes off, WFMU will continue to be in a bind.

Look, guys, the woof-mu issue is settled. What they need now is a logo for WMFU. "Wham! Foo!"?

More Charlie Hunter! This is great. Thanks, Irwin.

The Duke Ellington version of this tune always reminds me of the marathon... I seem to recall Ken using it with some regularity during the finale broadcasts, or maybe just on his own show.
Avatar Wed. 10/1/14 4:03pm northguineahills:

What about Andrea Silenzi?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/1/14 4:08pm Carmichael:

You'd think Ken's Komedy Klub on the 1st floor would be golden, as far as income goes. Get a booking agent other than Andy.

there was a japnanese dude directly under the bomb when it went off that lived, not sure how long though...and the streetcar system was back up a running the next week...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/1/14 4:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- since the Bomb is like a full-spectrum flash, it made flowers grow & bloom quickly & immediately...
  Wed. 10/1/14 4:45pm Dean:

I think it was Jeff Golick who spun a Meters record and a Robert Palmer record with the Meters backing earlier this week. Look what's up in SF: http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Meters-guitarist-sues-S-F-motel-for-racial-5794350.php

Gen'l Sickles actually, er, walked free out of court on that murder charge, and his blown-off leg bone is at the National Museum of Health and Medicine--he used to go visit it--and everybody today can too!

Lord Buckley was on Groucho Marx's TV show...

I've seen that Cage clip on YouTube. I can't imagine a contemporary American TV audience being so polite.

Lord Buckley was on..."You Bet Your Life"? That was Groucho's game show...

There was just a Robert Downey Sr. fest at Anthology Film Archives. Naturally I missed it.

Putney Swope's been on my netflix queue for a while...I should grab it before netflix removes the DVD
Avatar Wed. 10/1/14 5:44pm northguineahills:

@Steve: There are many collections of Cage's prepared piano pieces. I have "Works for Piano & Prepared Piano Vol.1" on Wergo Recs.
Avatar Wed. 10/1/14 5:44pm northguineahills:

Putney Swopes is rather awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/1/14 5:47pm steve:

thanks ngh- its just... my techno dj lifer buddy the other day was telling me how she read some John Cage writings or lectures and he sounded like he was describing techno, then she heard 433 or williams mix or something and was underwhelmed, that Dance piece is total proto techno tho, i have to find make her listen to that. ill download that one you mentioned, thanks.
  Wed. 10/1/14 5:49pm Listening Out There:

BTW, I read Strausbaugh's book right after it came out. Enjoyed it a lot...

  Wed. 10/1/14 5:55pm MrFab:

I believe the Cage piece is from "Three Dances for Two Prepared Pianos". Michael Tilson-Thomas does a great version that is readily available.

- nice glenn !
...SexPistols were like the early Wh♂ & many British things - but they just sound so much like the Dolls...
