Good morning, Frank. Bat-shit crazy weather here, shorts weather to 39 F in 18 hours.
Need some heavy edification, not to say medication.
Hey, P-90.

sorry, but I didn't get the memo about the "Singles". My bad yo.
I'll do the singles show in the future.

Morning Sem, and also you, P-90.

Comment by Irene, stolen by me. She said it better.

Let me make a quick reminder that WFMU is having a silent fundraiser throughout October to raise some much needed funds. We're trying to keep the bill paid and also to buy equipment for our great new performance space, Monty Hall.

Caught the "Little Voice" movie this week, hearing Ms. Horrocks' fab "Get Happy" here every Monday, I just got too curious to wait any longer to check it out.
Avatar    Mon. 10/20/14 6:15am fxo:

I'll use more stuff from "Little Voice", in the near future. Thanks.

real chill in the air, and dark, here in Jersey City.

I like the piano playing in the Bring Us Together piece.
  Mon. 10/20/14 7:27am P-90:

These moods all fit the weather, the time of year, the zeitgeist and all that jazz......very nice. I 'm in a similar boat as Sem, I'm working my way through piles of paperwork, and this playlist is just floating me through it, nice and smooth...

Hi not sure you can hear this outside the UK but here is a transcript of Iggy's keynote speech for John Peel Lecture - well worth a listen or read... www.bbc.co.uk...

lookin' forward to Iggy's rant. Thanks Jamesie.
  Mon. 10/20/14 7:42am P-90:

The more Phil (Baloo) Harris, the better. IMHO he's a the perfect mascot or "spirit animal' or whatever for your show, fxo. And I LOVE this arrangement of Tony Banks' epic "Firth"!

THANKS for that prog-flovored set, Brother Frank! Is that the same "Max B" who's currently incarcerated for conspiracy to commit much mayhem?
Also: Big thumbs up for more "Rainbow Guitars", you played a little bitty snippet a few weeks ago and I was hoping to hear more...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 10/20/14 8:17am Sem Chumbo:

Well, shoot. Have to catch the rest on the archive, printer needs more ink. *Creative accounting* requires many versions:-D. Thanks, fxo: you are not the only one not doing the 45's thing, JJ overnight is also opting out. See ya later!
Avatar    Mon. 10/20/14 8:18am fxo:

jeez, I hope it was about a different "Max B"...

snippets can be fun...

Yo, Frank!
Hey, RRN63, I just revisited Gaylord's list and noticed the link for the Pastis comic was for whatever's the new one for the day. So I added the "perma-link" for the comic in question. It had all my fave things: Rock trivia and homophonic wordplay.

Fahgeddabout it (the singles show), but will you be doing a Halloween show? I've a couple recs if you do such a thing.
Avatar    Mon. 10/20/14 8:30am fxo:

kat, not sure. My webcast will be on "All Hallows" day. We'll have to see...

I meant next week, before H-ween.
Avatar Mon. 10/20/14 8:32am kat330:

That's when people are starting to put together mixes for their weekend parties.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 10/20/14 8:33am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...so far - surprised how low-key FMU (generally) is about Halloween ; I'da thot it would go wild
...but being in Retail myself (well, thriftstore) - I can appreciate the War on Holidays (oh yes)...& it's evermore one big schmerey blur @ the end of the year, isn't it - ?!?...
Avatar Mon. 10/20/14 8:38am kat330:

Only direct ref I've seen is Kurt's doing a "horror" show of classic rock, which I gather is not specifically focusing on H-ween themes. But I don't see a tie-in between WFMU playing goblin/horror/ghost sorts of music and consumerism in any event? Just having some fun on a theme and no different from playing tributes to artists' b'days and deaths.
  Mon. 10/20/14 8:40am P-90:

Adjective of the week: "schmerey".
Avatar Mon. 10/20/14 8:41am kat330:

This is NOT "Harlem Nocturne" -- not even a jazzed-up riff on that melody.
Avatar Mon. 10/20/14 8:42am kat330:

It's something else, but I can't name it. Wanna check the Lp again, Frank?
  Mon. 10/20/14 8:44am P-90:

That was "You're my Greatest love", the theme from The Honeymooners. I think.
  Mon. 10/20/14 8:45am P-90:

It was Danny Gatton, that's what counts, anyway.
Avatar Mon. 10/20/14 8:45am kat330:

It sounded like something I should know with a more "exotic" title, but you could well be right, P-90.

rebuffering is a drag. But it seems fixed
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 10/20/14 8:49am Guido from Cologne:

hello Frank and everyone!
Enjoyed what I got from the show (last 1.5 hours or so).
And this "Holy Driver" is great!
Avatar Mon. 10/20/14 8:49am kat330:

@P-90: Not to the composer! :)
Avatar    Mon. 10/20/14 8:52am fxo:

I thought the "Nocturne" piece was from The Jackie Gleason show. Gatton put it out. Great guitar, anyway.

Hey there, Guido.
  Mon. 10/20/14 8:52am P-90:

He MIGHT have thought he was playing "Nuages", the jazz standard by Django Rheinhart, which Gleason was accused of, er...being "influenced" by. But i think consciously or not, ol' Danny turned it back into the Honeymooners thing as he improved his way through it. Interesting, now I wanna hear it again!
Avatar Mon. 10/20/14 8:53am kat330:

Nope, "Harlem Nocturne" is by Earle Hagen and is in perhaps my top 10 list of all-time favorite melodies. So I know it very well.
  Mon. 10/20/14 8:53am ColinTee:

RevRab, Haunted Smooth Jazz just might be the spoo-key to bridging the Halloween/WFMU gap: https://open.spotify.com/album/1EJtEh1P00Ri2ditEDUKgV#
Avatar Mon. 10/20/14 8:54am kat330:

Oh well. Whatever. Have a good week all.
  Mon. 10/20/14 8:55am P-90:

I concur, whatever it is, "Nocturne" it is not.
--Alfred Hitchcock/Donna Douglas Time already?!?!
This show always seems to end a little too soon......
Avatar    Mon. 10/20/14 8:56am fxo:

now I'M confused.
Have a nice week, I'll be back with a new webcast, next Monday, same station, same webspace.
  Mon. 10/20/14 8:57am P-90:

THANX for everything, as always, fxo!!!

It's a "P-90 PostScript", brought to you this week by: Joe Barden Guitar Pickups: http://jbepickups.com/

The tune in question was Jackie Gleason's OTHER theme song, I mixed it up with the Honeymooner's theme, but it was: "Melancholy Serenade", the theme from the Gleason VARIETY show from later in the Swingin' Sixties. Here's Danny and the boys:
