Morning, Ken and cory!

I have a very humble request for today.

It's not a specific song but an entire show. Specifically I'd like you to recreate the show recorded on June 28rd, 1996, including its respective mic breaks, commentary and everything. A live archive request if you like.

Alternatively you can play whatever you want (e.g Mueran Hermanos' El Circulo).

MUERAAAAN HERMANOOOOOOOS!!!!

What a band. Thanks so much, Ken, for introducing me to the Argentinian couple.

By the way, I think, judging by the lyrics, 'El Circulo' is a nationalistic political statement about the Falklands/Malvinas Islands.

The UN resolution of this week just expanded this 'Circulo' when it gave Argentina the right of a vast maritime territory (covering the islands).

  Wed. 3/30/16 9:51am f×f× (:

GWEENNOOO!!

Here's an excerpt from the handy 'Pronunciation Guide To Gwenno Music':

"
About 'Fratolish Hiany Perpeshki'

The letter F should be labialized without protrusion of the lips or velarization.

The syllable Hia is pharyngealized.

The Shki sound should be emited with the retracted tongue root.

The Perp syllable is a group spirated voiced consonants. Therefore pronounce it accordingly.

The letter 'A' in Hiany should be pronounced with a voiceless dental fricative release.

"


Hope it helps. It definitely helps me.

@SeanG & Marcel M- I like Phish. But I also like Replacements, Neil Young, Mission of Burma..and have been listening to WFMU off and on since 1985. My music taste are all over the map. As far as Phish fans hitting RSD, I've never encountered them on line in Atlanta. Most are hipsters.

Internet Explorer was pretty smartly programmed when it came to remotely-updated pages (deciding whether to use cached versions or not), but not so Edge.

Omg Ken love this track thanks! Was addicted when I heard it on Jesse's show earlier in the month.
     Wed. 3/30/16 10:53am Listener Robert:

5 secs after the updated playlist data comes, Edge is reverting to a version that was cached minutes earlier. I guess that's better than going blank, but still....

And the MSIE is incompatible w Win 10!

That's not the only function that seems to have been lost with Edge. The "save" feature doesn't query me for the directory I want the files in. I have to open Downloads & move them.

Are you talking about U2's latest album?
     Wed. 3/30/16 10:59am Listener Robert:

However, I do regret not having made this dual-boot, Windows & Linux, when we got it. I chickened out largely because it came w Windows preinstalled & no install'n media.

I think the best show Ken has ever produced is one he made few years ago which wasn't archived because it never went on air (a storm had just blew away the transmitter). It is his most uninhibited, unrestrained show because it was streamed online without any FCC restrictions. I still remember what I was doing when I heard the show.

It's hard to pick a Ken fave, though!

The show wasn't archived because it was somehow improvised in Ken's house I think. Isn't Ken?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/30/16 11:24am Cliff:

The playlist exists but points to no file archive. But I can't remember the date. But it was during the aftermath of a hurricane that unfortunately canceled the Hippie Parade (Record Fair) that year.

I realise it's somewhat anti-democratic, but I suddenly felt nostalgic for old-money rich politicians with some sense of noblesse oblige and public probity...then again, all my grandparents were born when Victoria was Queen of England &c....and I'm not Japanese-American.

I'm not sure if this was the same hurricane, but I remember Clay Pigeon and Julie doing a marathon Saturday overnight/Sunday morning session because no one else could make it to the station, until Keili came in at 9am (and then Clay started interrogating her nonstop, heh)
