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, all. Aside from the obvious.

hi everyone.

what up, polka heads?
Avatar Mon. 1/11/16 12:05pm βrian:

All ears, here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:05pm doctorjazz:

More Polka?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:05pm Brian in UK:

Hello Jeff. Dare I say my intro was Can't Help Thinking About Me by David Jones and the Lower Third. Yes, I am that old.
  Mon. 1/11/16 12:05pm OldManLandry:

The BOOSH!
  Mon. 1/11/16 12:06pm Dean:

Intro to Bowie: Space Oddity c. 1974. Damn, watched the entire Lemmy funeral yesterday and now this. Too fucking morbid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:06pm JtotheK:

the polka tunes reminded me of all the radio stations in upper WI that still play it ... gonna have to tune in to those next time i'm up north.

Good lord. Does it rhyme with wowwy, joey, or hooey??
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:07pm Uncle Michael:

Ziggy for me.
Avatar Mon. 1/11/16 12:07pm glenn:

fave album - man who sold the world. fave song - hard to say, but probably station to station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:08pm Jeff Golick:

I think the BBC obit noted it rhymes with "joey."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:08pm listener james from westwood:

Therese's mid-show pivot last night to Bowie was skillful. Taking things tentatively re: tributes this week as I got really swamped during the Lou Reed nods on top of then-fresh family grief. But happy WFMU celebrated the hell out of both artists well before their passing and sent or will send them off in proper style.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:09pm Jeff Golick:

Hey, Landry! @Dean!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:09pm Uncle Michael:

I'm probably a little too proud of having debuted his new album on WFMU and its subsidiaries.
Avatar Mon. 1/11/16 12:10pm βrian:

Ok, that's two solid votes for the canonical pronunciation. Good to know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:10pm Brian in UK:

Like I mentioned previously. He was cool right up to the end. No bleating about his situation. We can all be heroes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:11pm Uncle Michael:

If just for one day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:12pm Jeff Golick:

@UM: I'd be similarly proud.
@Brian: that his condition was so little known, given the current levels of media frenzienss, is kind of astonishing.
  Mon. 1/11/16 12:13pm Doug Schulkind:

I still miss Lester Bowie terribly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:13pm Jeff Golick:

As I generally like to take things back to books, here's a list of Bowie's 100 favorite books: www.openculture.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:14pm Jeff Golick:

Hey, Doug. I did note, while searching my music for "Bowie," that I have a preponderance of Lester.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:16pm JtotheK:

thanks for the list of books, Jeff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:18pm Brian in UK:

@Uncle do you think DB's vocals are powerful on the new album or is there a hint of fading?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:18pm Jeff Golick:

Among Bowie's (many) saving graces: his sense of humor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:20pm Uncle Michael:

it's hard for me to tell if he sounds weakened by illness or if the subdued vocals are intentional. I have no idea how long ago he recorded them or what the status of his health was at that time. I'd just be projecting, as I am now that I presume the entire album to be a conscious swan song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:21pm Brian in UK:

Book list pretty well mid/late twentieth century.

Uncle bit of a dumb question. Did he play sax on it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:22pm Uncle Michael:

I don't know. There is sax on it...on Lazarus it's very good. I haven't looked at liner notes so I don't know if that's him.
Avatar Mon. 1/11/16 12:23pm glenn:

if this isn't peter hook playing bass, i'll be shocked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:23pm Uncle Michael:

Donny McCaslin – flute, saxophone, woodwinds
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:23pm Jeff Golick:

Was recorded mostly in January 2015, with a jazz group led by saxophonist Danny McCaslin. Here's more on how it came together: www.rollingstone.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:23pm Uncle Michael:

Tim Lefebvre – bass
  Mon. 1/11/16 12:23pm Doug Schulkind:

Bowie plays sax on some lovely Steeleye Span tracks. And doesn't he get saxy on that one Genya Raven tune?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:24pm Uncle Michael:

David Bowie – vocals, acoustic guitar, mixing, production, string arrangements, "Fender Guitar" on "Lazarus"
Donny McCaslin – flute, saxophone, woodwinds
Ben Monder – guitar
Jason Lindner – piano, organ, keyboards
Tim Lefebvre – bass
Mark Guiliana – drums, percussion
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:24pm Jeff Golick:

Many (most?) of you might have just heard this one on Joe McG's show, but ...can't...not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:26pm Brian in UK:

Thanks. Andy Gill in the Independent (one of the few critics I trust) said it was his best in the longest time. Sounds like a grower.
Avatar Mon. 1/11/16 12:26pm ndbob:

afternoon Jeff and everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:28pm Jeff Golick:

Greetings, @ndbob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:28pm Uncle Michael:

He left it all on the field, as they say in sports ball.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:30pm Brian in UK:

Jeff, avantgardepolka next?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:31pm Jeff Golick:

I'm afraid I don't go that deep, @Brian. (But this was indeed inspired but a non-polka cut Joe played.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:32pm doctorjazz:

Nice version of Witchi-Tai-To.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:32pm Brian in UK:

You play with fifty one cards?
Avatar Mon. 1/11/16 12:38pm glenn:

avant garde olka? astor piazzolaski?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:39pm Jeff Golick:

This Wood Spider album is a "name your price" download at Bandcamp, fyi: woodspider.bandcamp.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:40pm Brian in UK:

@glenn raise your blood pressure and seizure.

Love it, Jeff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:42pm Jeff Golick:

Geez apologies for the crappy quality of the dig file on this Novos Baianos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:52pm Uncle Michael:

Great choice, Jeff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:54pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks, @UM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:54pm Jeff Golick:

Then there's this...
  Mon. 1/11/16 12:54pm Dean:

Great complement to Joe Belock's opening track here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:54pm doctorjazz:

Great show, thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:55pm Brian in UK:

Nice one, Jeff.
To quote Lord Buckley, cool means to believe, I think this fella believed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:55pm Jeff Golick:

@Dean: yeah, I only saw Joe B's pick, didn't hear it (obvs.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:55pm Jeff Golick:

@doctorjazz: Glad you could be here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:56pm Jeff Golick:

@Brian in UK: You got that right.
  Mon. 1/11/16 12:56pm Dean:

Not exactly on topic, but more than one speaker at Lemmy's funeral mentioned he was a huge fan of ABBA (?!), The Beatles, Monty Python, Goon Show... One wishes there were a heaven and there were bands there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:57pm JtotheK:

enjoyed the show, thanks Jeff.
Avatar Mon. 1/11/16 12:57pm glenn:

love mott. one of the all time underrated bands.
Avatar Mon. 1/11/16 12:57pm ndbob:

excellent show Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:58pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks for joining in, @JtotheK, @glenn, @ndbob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:58pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks for the show, Jeff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 12:58pm Brian in UK:

I admire him for turning down a CBE and Knighthood. Jagger loves that sort of thing. Creep.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 12:58pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks, Jeff!
Avatar Mon. 1/11/16 12:59pm glenn:

sure, because mick's a capitalist robber baron, deep to his scuzzy core.
  Mon. 1/11/16 1:00pm Dean:

Only the good die young?
  Mon. 1/11/16 1:00pm Doug Schulkind:

Digging from work. Thanks, El Jefe!
  Mon. 1/11/16 1:01pm ktrsbklyn:

well mused, Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 1:03pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks, one and all! (And see you soon, @ktrsbklyn.)
