OK, this is interesting. Brian in UK writes "da homies" at the exact moment that I am playing a track from the West African nation of Benin. The name of the ancient kingdom from the region that became Benin?

It was called Dahomey.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/1/16 10:50am Doug Schulkind:

So lovable!
  Fri. 1/1/16 10:50am sinner:

There should never be a problem with the stream. To quote MLK, quoting the Old Testament prophet, Amos: Amos 5:24 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
“But let justice roll down like waters
And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream."

I don't think I've heard this B record. It doesn't quite fit his style...

those Yusef Lateef tributes was fantastic and amazing. i'm a fan of memorials, myself. the kcr days long tribute to Ornette was really cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/1/16 11:12am Doug Schulkind:

@hyde
The WKCR memorials are so amazing precisely (in part, in my view) because of their over-the-topness. Bless them for doing them.

@Dean
This is a full-service radio show. I checked your oil, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/1/16 11:15am hyde:

@Doug absolutely, they are really the best. when those happen, it's one of the few times i don't tune in fmu for a couple of days because i just commit to sticking those out every waking second.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/1/16 11:18am Doug Schulkind:

We in our house have been engorging on WKCR's 10-day Bach festival, which they do at the end of every year. It is sonic wallowing at its finest.
  Fri. 1/1/16 11:20am Dean:

It's best that I not learn about 10-day Bach festivals. If I were Emperor, there would be 365-day Bach festivals each year, with a one day respite in leap years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/1/16 11:20am hyde:

didn't know about that. i'll check it out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/1/16 11:22am Brian in UK:

I have trouble getting past Pablo Casals playing his cello suites.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/1/16 11:24am Doug Schulkind:

My current obsession is Alfred Schnittke's Viola Concerto. I hereby promise to play the entire thing on an upcoming GTDS. I heard it at my daughter's viola recital a few weeks ago. Another student played a section from it and it blew me away. Check our Yuri Bashmet's performance of it on Youtube. Wows!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/1/16 11:25am Ham:

we made it!
  Fri. 1/1/16 11:25am Dean:

@Brian in UK: Good or bad trouble? Is it because you don't want to give up listening to Casals? Or because his playing turns you off Bach? If the latter, introduce yourself to Bach via Tragicomedia's recording of excerpts from the Anna Magdalena Notebook. It is glorious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/1/16 11:25am Doug Schulkind:

Hey, Ham! Where's Eggs?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/1/16 11:31am Brian in UK:

@Dean only good trouble. Bach is such a force and the body of work is astounding.

Best gig, hearing Bach's Toccata and Fugue on a Viennese church organ in the middle of a 37c afternoon when the church was a haven of cool.

Aside from the horror, that's one wild coincidence.

Regarding WKCR ending streaming, here is what one WFMU person in the know says:

"Yes, ignorance and fear reign in the worlds of college and community radio, just like Soundexchange always hoped. The streaming rules changed as of today, and WKCR would need to register with NFCB or IBS in order to continue streaming (for less than $100 a year)."
