Order and disorder in a freeform haze of terribly-played guitars, shorted-out electronics, found audio detritus, strange sounds from strange lands all around. Psych-punk-junk, collage, even pop. Lots of in-studio live performances to boot.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 3:50pm Cliff:

Yes, though Germanic pagans and Wiccans call it Ostara
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/9/16 3:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Oh - all Holidays are thoroughly Pagan & then co-opted. Eostre/Ostara was a Goddess. & even Easter is derived from Moon cycles...

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 3:52pm Cliff:

"Ēostre or Ostara (Old English: Ēastre, Northumbrian dialect Ēostre; Old High German: *Ôstara (reconstructed form)) is a Germanic divinity who, by way of the Germanic month bearing her name (Northumbrian: Ēosturmōnaþ; West Saxon: Ēastermōnaþ; Old High German: Ôstarmânoth), is the namesake of the festival of Easter. Ēostre is attested solely by Bede in his 8th-century work The Reckoning of Time, where Bede states that during Ēosturmōnaþ (the equivalent of April), pagan Anglo-Saxons had held feasts in Eostre's honor, but that this tradition had died out by his time, replaced by the Christian Paschal month, a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus."

  Tue. 2/9/16 5:08pm Lyle:

We had just finished a gig in Blue Earth. I suppose it must have been one in the morning. I was 3rd bone with Dorsey's band, and most of them were asleep on the bus. Tommy and I were awake, though, and we were hungry. So we pulled into this trout farm which was, of course, closed at that late hour. Over the fence we went with a couple of the cane poles we always kept in the cargo hold for just such an occasion. We dug up a couple of fat earthworms, which was easy as it had recently rained, and before you know it we each landed a nice trout. We tried to skidaddle out of there but a policeman met us in the parking lot and we thought were going to jail. Luckily, he was a big Tommy Dorsey fan, and after Tommy played a few bars of The Dipsy Doodle and signed an autograph, that policeman let us go on our merry way, trout and all!

I understand why you would doubt my authenticity. After all, most of the boys I remember from those days have been in the ground for years. Funny that Mr. Turner played the Blondie combo. Someday I'll tell you about the time a pretty young gal named Debby Harry sang with us when I was in Guy Lombardo's band in Hackettstown, NJ. Centenary College, I think that was the gig. Anyway, she was a shy thing, as I recall. She had to be pushed onstage by her beatnik-looking friends. Guy was growing increasingly irritated in those days by his inability to cross-over with the younger set, so he wasn't patient with her. I had to tug his sleeve and wink at him, giving him a "calm down" look. Debby ended up singing a passable version of Sammy Cahn's arrangement of Herman's Hermits, "Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter." The crowd loved her. Guy called the gig early and told us to get on the bus. He was silent all the way to Poughkeepsie, but then he lightened up. He was like that. Moody.

Wow, looks like I missed some stellar banter. And some killer tunes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 5:36pm chris:

Hearty could probably vouch for Lyle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 5:37pm coelacanth:

so could the old codger, but he might not want to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 5:38pm Cliff:

Oh yes, I believe every last word that comes out of Hearty White's mouth
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 5:38pm Cliff:

Carmichael, ask Lyle to tell you a story or two
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 5:39pm coelacanth:

are others having sound-fizzling-out issues? on 90.1? on the stream?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 5:43pm chris:

not on the stream, as far as i can tell, coel
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/9/16 5:43pm Carmichael:

Lyle tells better stories than that English roadie in Wayne's World 2.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 5:43pm Cliff:

Stream's sounding good for me too
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 5:44pm coelacanth:

well, if Lyle is a figment of his (her?) own imagination, he has a home at wfmu. (with the old codger, robert steadfast, professor dum dum, etc...)

any chance of a blast from den mediterande uttern coast?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 5:46pm coelacanth:

Thanks. it was just 90.1. it was really bad all day sunday, but was good all day today until a few minutes ago. i guess it's not fixed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 5:48pm Cliff:

I truly want to believe that there is a 90-something guy out there who roadied for all kinds of musicians and is a faithful WFMU listener and is also capable of using the internet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 5:49pm Cliff:

No matter how implausible that sounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 5:51pm Cliff:

He could be like that sci-fi writer who composes limericks for the NYT online comments.
Avatar    Tue. 2/9/16 5:52pm geezerette:

I knew a 92 year old jazz musician who was sharp as hell, interested in everything, and had the eyes and laugh of a twenty year old . People like that are pure gold.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/9/16 5:52pm coelacanth:

he could conceivably be around 80. Dorsey died in the 50s....but i doubt that orchestra had players of too green an age.

true, geezerette. those ARE the gold stars.
...i went to a birthday party of a buddhist monk,who turned 108 on that day. he was sharper than most 65-year-olds- and funny! the only thing failing was his hearing, but even that wasn't too bad.

Thanks Brian!
ciao people

I enjoy your programming Brian. Some of it is a little raucous for my taste, but I like hearing what the young folks are up to these days. I also enjoy reading the comments of your loyal listeners. Good bye for now. Keep swingin'!

It was storytime with Lyle today, Brian

Meeting those people is a lucky thing, they show you what's possible and have so much to teach.
