"Put the candle beck!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 12:36pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Did Beck just sample The Frogs? "That was a good drum break" is from "I Don't Care if U Disrespect Me (Just So You Love Me)" but I'd have to listen again to determine whether it's really a sample or not. Does anyone know fer shure?
  Thu. 9/1/16 12:37pm judy from croton:

Hello from foggy san francisco. Very Beckish, feeling peckish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 12:37pm Parq:

Who knew Beck could groove like this. Yes, I know, probably everybody else but me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 12:38pm βrian:

Gene Wilder was from Milwaukee, by the way. Born in the same neighborhood as the recent troubles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 12:38pm Parq:

Is it too late for me to mention how much I dug the D12BB?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 12:39pm βrian:

@Parq: That should be your license plate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 12:39pm Charlie:

Hi judy from croton, howareya?
Wendy -- I do not know the answer to that one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 12:40pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Ooh, Jimmy Scott! I love that guy. He knows how to pick cool covers, and he's just wonderful other than that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 12:40pm Charlie:

never too late, Parq -- I luv that cut too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 12:46pm βrian:

This is the groove between the sets.
Avatar Thu. 9/1/16 12:48pm ndbob:

indeed Charlie
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 12:49pm Parq:

No, no, don't stop, you were *this close* to making sense!

You could be reading Kenny G's "Wasting Time on the Internet"

Haha, y'all!

If I talked for the entire two hours, I *might* make sense for two minutes!

Wow, this is sing-along-with-the-deejay week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 1:03pm Webhamster Henry:

There's not enough DJ participation on WFMU, IMHO! There should be Hoof 'n' Mouth of some sort every month!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:03pm Wendy del Formaggio:

"The canyons of your mind" might be the best phrase ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 1:03pm Jeff:

There are lots of words in this song.
  Thu. 9/1/16 1:04pm That Mike:

Sing it! First Matt, now Charlie. Anyone else this week?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 1:04pm Uncle Michael:

NO.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 1:05pm Uncle Michael:

Matt Warwick sang this week, actually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:06pm Charlie:

Matt Warwick's rendition of "Pure Imagination" on Garbage Time was one of the most inspired live DJ sing-alongs I've ever heard!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 1:07pm Jeff:

"I can think of no one better to do this tribute."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:18pm Charlie:

I had to restrain myself from playing Matt's song today. If you missed it, check it out here: wfmu.org...

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 1:32pm βrian:

Is their full name "Of or having to do with Montreal"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:33pm Wendy del Formaggio:

The beginning of this DJ Shadow number always makes me so happy. This is such a great album. It's been on heavy rotation in my world for about 20 years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:34pm Wendy del Formaggio:

(It's 20th anniversary is coming up in November, in fact!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:34pm Charlie:

Wendy -- one of my top ten (five? three?) albums of all time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:35pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Charlie, SAME!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:35pm Charlie:

ßrian -- "of, relating to, or pertaining to Montreal"

First time I heard was a showing of Dark Days. What a great fusion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:36pm Charlie:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 1:44pm βrian:

Of the Soul. Yes, I see.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:52pm Mike East:

Almost threw on this B Boys rekkid last week but went for the Beegees instead which is right next to it on the shelf.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:54pm Mike East:

Also was talking about De La Soul yesterday and Ashford and Simpson two weeks ago
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:54pm Charlie:

I always get those two groups confused, Mike East ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:54pm Mike East:

@Charlie - haha!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:57pm Charlie:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 1:57pm Parq:

Luv that urgent rhythm guitar riff that punctuates each chorus of that Rascals tune.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 1:58pm Parq:

One more tune, and a superb choice it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/1/16 1:58pm Charlie:

Parq -- yes!
Hey -- thanks everyone for being here today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 1:58pm Jeff:

Thanks, Charlie!

This show has been a balm in the midst of an ass-end-of-summer cold. Sniffly thanks!
