Nice to see you awake, Sean! Welcome everybody!
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Irene and everybody!

Welcome Sean!! It may be tough but I too have woken up for a 3-6 a.m. WFMU show before - much respect! :)
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:12pm fleep:

Greetings, Irene, Sean, Matt, from a very wet Los Angeles. We needed rain and now it won't stop.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Everywhere it seems to rain tonight, fleep...but that's a relief for your area, at least.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 9:14pm Irene Trudel:

I hear you, fleep! It's spitting cold rain here in the NYC area, but you Californians need it more.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:14pm duke:

Good evening Irene, Matt, Fleep, and uncounted thousands of listeners
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:18pm t_J:

I was wondering what FMU's DJ managed to distress my breeding rate.. and YAY .. Irene , Hi, new time slot, nice
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:19pm t_J:

I meant breathing

This a tremendous song
  Tue. 12/2/14 9:22pm Sybil:

Good cold rainy evening Irene and all!

That Adrian Crowley song made me think of Johnny Cash. Don't know why. Great song.
  Tue. 12/2/14 9:23pm marmalade kitty:

It's the 3rd of December here already!
  Tue. 12/2/14 9:23pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Olivia Chaney, lovely.
  Tue. 12/2/14 9:24pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Great, great set, Irene.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Kitty - another late listener!

Piano rhythm reminiscent of Stephen Foster...
  Tue. 12/2/14 9:27pm marmalade kitty:

It has to be the removal of the world trade centre girders?
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, Nichols & May - what delightful comedy albums they did.
  Tue. 12/2/14 9:37pm Mrs P:

Hi Irene and listeners. So nice to have you on at night Irene. Love hearing Nichols and May too.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Fat - all the way through.
From all angles...
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:38pm Matt from Springfield:

The *real* dirty part is, they're going to have tea afterwards...
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:39pm Matt from Springfield:

WHOA! He's a closeted hat wearer! Shocker at the end there!
  Tue. 12/2/14 9:39pm P-90:

Good evening Irene and all. Still getting used to listening to this show live. This is the first time since Nichols' passing that I've heard someone play some Nichols and May. Thanks! Part of me still doesn't believe he's gone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 9:39pm Irene Trudel:

@marmalade Kitty, the picture is actually of sparks flying off the new transportation hub construction in that area.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Good evening P-90!
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:40pm t_J:

which* means that I haven't quitted, both, the I)deology and the U)topia.. gosh ... smoking as a wearing apparel, only to the non lonely? course not.. the fallen star has whispered me more than that
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Of course, the French need to involve everyone in their affairs. The more the merrier..
  Tue. 12/2/14 9:48pm dennis diken:

nice show Irene! I always discover new music that I dig on your program
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 9:49pm Tome:

Irene in the evening now... and lovely set so far ... all I can do is sip my tea sit back and "ahhh" ...
  Tue. 12/2/14 9:55pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

It's been great listening live but coming up to 3 am so back to the land of nod for me. Thank goodness for archive. As always, Irene, wonderful music. Night, night, Trukeepers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 9:58pm JakeGould:

Hi Irene!
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 10:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Good night Sean! And hello Jake and Tome!

Dennis Diken, longtime friend of WFMU, goes w/o saying :)
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 10:02pm Matt from Springfield:

"Who Murdered the Minuets" FEELS more right, it would be a great title.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 10:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Peter Schickele, the noted arranger of Baroque pop in the 60s, and also the man behind the "P.D.Q. Bach" alter ego.
  Tue. 12/2/14 10:11pm P-90:

@Matt von S.: Did you see the piece on Tom Scharpling in the NY Times today?
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 10:14pm Matt from Springfield:

Mmm, "Krasnodar Krai" is Russian - I was wondering if this was a Bulgarian women choir when it began. I would compare Olga Bell favorably to the Trio Bulgarka.

@P-90: No I didn't! So, I guess "the Establishment" has taken our Tom and claimed him for themselves then? ;)
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 10:19pm Matt from Springfield:


News is lookin' good! :)
  Tue. 12/2/14 10:29pm Carmichael:

Ok, I'll admit I haven't been paying attention to the schedule changes. Nevertheless, pleasant surprise to see you here, Irene.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 10:35pm fleep:

Of all the schedule changes, this one hit the mark, at least in this time zone. Darkness becomes you, Irene.
  Tue. 12/2/14 10:35pm blee:

This is a perfect rainy night playlist, Irene. Pitter patter pitter.

Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 10:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Radio lag, for sure.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 10:49pm t_J:

explaining that last bit: I got a fallen star on request, so no scapegoats.. just relying on
  Tue. 12/2/14 10:50pm Carmichael:

If I was logged in, I would clicky star all of Irene's playlist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 10:51pm Irene Trudel:

Aw, you folks are too sweet! Glad you're all enjoying it.
  Tue. 12/2/14 10:54pm Queen Of Caldor:

Good evening Queen of Caldor! For a cold drizzly night this is already working splendidly.
  Tue. 12/2/14 11:01pm Carmichael:

It's raining here in California, for the 1st time in like 12 years. This music is the perfect accompaniment.

Ah, the whole Family Thompson!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 11:12pm Irene Trudel:

Yes, Matt. And I hear most of the Thompson Family is about to go on tour with this.
  Tue. 12/2/14 11:15pm Queen Of Caldor:

Anyone know when the next marathon is?
  Tue. 12/2/14 11:16pm Carmichael:

Holy cow, would that be a great concert.

Sounds awesome, Irene!

@Queen: Next March, 3 months away. Prepare to Pledge! Prepare to Laugh! Prepare to have your mind boggled by DJ Clay Pigeon! :)

Do you remember the controversy surrounding Randy Newman's Little Criminals when it came out?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 11:26pm Irene Trudel:

The next WFMU Marathon isn't until I think the 2nd week in March.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 11:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Just so tired of waiting...

@Queen Of Caldor - The Alco stores are following your realm's lead and are going out of business.

space is the place--Irene at night--this is awesome
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 11:32pm Mugsy:

I think this show is great at any time.

Le Noir C'est Mieux Choisi, written by Higelin---I was given a tape of Higelin some 30 years ago. You're full of surprises, Irene.

  Tue. 12/2/14 11:59pm Andrew:

Wikipedia has a good-sized article on Jacques Higelin. It says he has two albums with Brigitte Fontaine and another with Areski Belkacem. Not that I knew any of this before 5 minutes ago

I don't run with the crowd
I don't talk big and loud
I'm just one step ahead of the blues
One step ahead of the blues
