A time to be born, a time to die / A time to Robert Plant, a time to reap / A time to Killdozer, a time to heal / A time to laugh, a time to Take a Train to Cry. / A time to Build Me Up, Buttercup, a time to Stop Breaking Down / A time to dance, a time to September Morn / A time to cast away Stones / A time to gather Stones together. / A time of Love, a time of Hate Your Friends / A time of War, a time of Peace Piece / A time you may choogle / A time to refrain from chooglin’. And a time to every Tortoise under heaven.

How do, Jeff and all! Welcome to Mondays (again)!
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 11:33am Doug Schulkind:

Sorry to miss the debut Magic Monday but I gotta dash to work. Keep working those sleight of ear tricks, Jeff Golick!
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 11:36am Jeff Golick:

Thanks for opening up the proceedings, @listener james.
And we'll save some magic for you, @Doug.

What day is this? What time? Did I sleep through a couple of days? I'm easily confused.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:00pm Jeff Golick:

Right on cue, @duke!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 12:03pm doctorjazz:

Hi all, Welcome to the Working Week!
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:04pm Jeff Golick:

Right on, @doctorjazz.
Avatar    Mon. 5/18/15 12:04pm duke:

This is a nice version of Blue Monday
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:04pm listener james from westwood:

New Order/Blue Monday covers always welcome.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:05pm Jeff Golick:

Then you might like the next one, too, @ljfw...
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:07pm listener james from westwood:

Absolutely right, both the song and its most excellent singer!
  Mon. 5/18/15 12:08pm Dean:

Heard a tune this a.m. on the radio station my kids listen to that sounded like New Order. It wasn't them, but one of those manicured groups you see sponsored on JetBlue TVs, Foster the People.

Thanks to WFMU, I now have three Laura Cantrell records. Bought 'em 'cuz I heard 'em here!

  Mon. 5/18/15 12:08pm pacific standard simon:

Monday is for lovers (of losers).
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:09pm Jeff Golick:

Yo, @Dean! Yo, @pacific standard simon!
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:10pm Jeff Golick:

Foster the People is really a terrible name for a group.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 12:11pm doctorjazz:

Pretty Laura Cantrell, just have the last album, looks like I need to shop.
  Mon. 5/18/15 12:12pm Dean:

Yes, Jeff G., and yet not terrible at all for the group so named.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:13pm Jeff Golick:

Amen to that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/18/15 12:16pm Brian in UK:

Hello Jeff. So three hours.........
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:18pm Jeff Golick:

Aha, @Brian in UK. Welp...not today?
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:20pm ndbob:

afternoon Jeff and everyone!
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:21pm Jeff Golick:

Hello and welcome, @ndbob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/18/15 12:21pm Brian in UK:

Hey ndbob.
  Mon. 5/18/15 12:25pm Dean:

Damnit. Twice this week I missed BS on FMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 12:26pm doctorjazz:

Great sounding Van, new album?
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:26pm Jeff Golick:

I was inspired by Uncle Michael playing them last week -- was that one?
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:27pm Jeff Golick:

@doctorjazz -- St. Dominic's Preview, an oldie!
  Mon. 5/18/15 12:27pm Dean:

Yeah, that was it. Peace, Love & Understanding. Such a great band.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:29pm βrian:

Hard to hear it is a big understatement. I've got a serious allergy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/18/15 12:30pm Brian in UK:

Anyone remember the blonde cello player who sat at the front of the Caledonia Soul Orchestra when the man played live?
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:31pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

There are some great cuts on St. Dominic's Preview (the title track and "Independence Day" in particular). I periodically return to that era of Van Morrison, always somehow surprised by how good it sounds. And then there's "Astral Weeks" of course...
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:31pm βrian:

Not the one with the pink eye patch and goatee …?
  Mon. 5/18/15 12:32pm Dean:

My favorite Van Morrison remains "Into the Music." I've never heard AW!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/18/15 12:32pm Brian in UK:

@elf so you had a safe journey home?
Listen to the Lion is off St Doms?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/18/15 12:32pm Uncle Michael:

Pinkeye? Ringworm? Bread up front?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/18/15 12:33pm Brian in UK:

@βrian I would have remembered if she had a goatee.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:35pm Jeff Golick:

I played the hell out of Astral Weeks -- might've been one of the first CDs I bought when that format first rolled out. But that's one I can still go back to without complaint.

Welcome, @UM -- were your ears buzzing? -- and also @βrian!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/18/15 12:35pm Brian in UK:

@Jeff The Mighty Diamonds would suit you for Jamaican harmony.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:36pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks for that, @Brian. Will have to search them out! Love it so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/18/15 12:36pm Uncle Michael:

I got my buzzy ears on, good buddy. That's a big 10-4.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:40pm Jeff Golick:

There was (is?) a great local news segment called Shame On You, wherein a local newscaster brought to like some businessman's shameful activity. Had a nifty little theme, too.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:40pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

@BrianinUK Yes, got into Heathrow Saturday morn, now safely back in Canterbury among the bluebells, birdsong and sunshine : )
I had a nice jam with some musos in a Madison basement on my last night in Wisconsin, including a bass player called Charlie Brown who turned out to be a Kevin Ayers freak! Most unexpected:

And "Listen to the Lion" is indeed on St. Dom's (last track on side 1)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/18/15 12:42pm Brian in UK:

Perfect end to a holiday.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:42pm Jeff Golick:

Sounds like a successful trip, @the Canterbury wood-elf!
  Mon. 5/18/15 12:42pm Dean:

A question for the collective memory of the board: Sometime during the late '80s, early '90s, a rock group produced a CD with a haunting cover (perhaps back of the booklet). It was a sepia-toned photograph of a group of mobster-types holding aloft a carpet rolled around a victim, all but his head encased in the upholstery. They were on the verge of tossing it and him into a body of water from the pier on which they were standing. Anybody know it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/18/15 12:47pm Brian in UK:

You see Jeff, one hour is not long enough.

In lieu of the name, some of Stan Tracey's band are touring Under Milk Wood over here as it is fifty years young.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 12:47pm doctorjazz:

I have St Dominicks Preview in the old vinyl pile, haven't heard it is so long..sounded like a jazz band, thought it may have been redone, have to pull it out!
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:48pm Jeff Golick:

That's a pretty remarkable tour, @Brian. Are the crowds showing up, do you know?

@doctorjazz: that VM does seem very much in keeping with his current jazzy direction (not that I've heard much of it, mind).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 12:49pm doctorjazz:

Fabulous Pullen, no note clusters so far, he didn't really need them!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 12:49pm doctorjazz:

There they are!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/18/15 12:50pm Brian in UK:

It has nearly finished I was a bit slow out of the traps finding out about it. Only playing bijou gigs.

By the by, where does the term gigs come from. Is it derived from giggles?
  Mon. 5/18/15 12:51pm pacific standard simon:

Enjoying the Pullen. Sometimes you like to hear something that could be an old Tom Waits song, but without Tom singing.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:52pm Jeff Golick:

Ha - that's so right @pss.

I thought gigs came from the show "Gigi?"
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:55pm ndbob:

excellent show Jeff!
  Mon. 5/18/15 12:55pm pacific standard simon:

Now, see, if this show were three hours, I could probably be arsed to get out of bed and log in properly, instead of using the FMU app.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:56pm listener james from westwood:

PSS, don't knock not getting out of bed.
Thanks for the fine program, Jeff!
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:58pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks, @ndbob & @ljfw! Glad you gents could find your way to the new locale.

And some say, @pss, that our app is one of our best qualities!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/18/15 12:58pm Brian in UK:

No offense but I cannot get past Aaron Neville singing this gem. Nice one, Jeff.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 12:59pm Jeff Golick:

That's fair, @Brian. And thanks!
  Mon. 5/18/15 12:59pm Dean:

Per OED on "gig" -- Etymology: Origin unknown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 12:59pm doctorjazz:

Fun show, thanks!
  Mon. 5/18/15 1:00pm pacific standard simon:

My tablet's speakers are somewhat lacking in gloriosity.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 1:03pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks for tuning in, @doctorjazz!

And I know the feeling, @pss....
