@ Fabio: now that The Kamikaze Fun Machine has been jettisoned from the Fall schedule, is it ok if I borrow your sleeve to wipe away my tears....and soothe my snotty nose? Oh, the Failure...the Failure...the Failure...

I'll save what I can and have them freeze dried, would be great on oatmeal

@VP: The Failure of Scheduling, indeed. sad face.
Avatar    Thu. 9/1/16 3:12pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

wait....... whut? No DK this fall?
I missed 99% of the show today: that would be tragic. The Chris M./DK/Fabio sequence makes thursdays the BEST day of all the days. Favorite day ever.

The Scott W./Fabio transition is a forever classic (when the hell was that, 4+ years ago?), but this current thursday trio is one for the ages.

Nothing sounds quite like a mellotron.
  Thu. 9/1/16 3:23pm Matt:

I absolutely jumped when this soundtrack was reissued a few months back.
Avatar Thu. 9/1/16 3:23pm βrian:

There did seem to be an overlap on Thursday, as far as genres. Interesting to see Trouble will be back to Thursday.
  Thu. 9/1/16 3:23pm Polyus:

Except maybe a sampled mellotron.

Weird. Wikipedia has Xenakis dying in February 2001, but the caption to this photograph in Guardian says he's at home in May of that year: https://www.theguardian.com/music/tomserviceblog/2013/apr/23/contemporary-music-guide-xenakis

Is that the sound of our DJ cueing records and CDs?
Avatar    Thu. 9/1/16 4:25pm Fox (Rā-chul):

Rev: There's a record of MRI sounds? I'd totally dig that. I fall asleep in MRI machines. I blame WFMU and Squarepusher.

Fabio and the TNP is what gets me through the 3-11 shift on Thursday. I truly love every minute of Thur on WFMU.

@Fox (4:25) - Yes indeed. And it looks like they're Swiss, not French. Got to see them do this live in Paris a few years ago. All digitally processed MRI machine sounds. Freaking gorgeous record: www.discogs.com...

@Brendan: YES! thanks, Marlow...

I have to leave this radio program, a really good Failure,
and enter the subway. I promise to listen to the archive later.

Amazing for something called 'Untitled'. Imagine if it were by Anonymous or Unknown (like say Greensleeves) . Now that would make for an interesting record store inquiry.

cool show. Fabio!
  Thu. 9/1/16 5:47pm Brendan:

Re: William Bendix (in wiki ) In the early 1920s, Bendix was a batboy for the New York Yankees and said he saw Babe Ruth hit more than a hundred home runs at Yankee Stadium. However, he was fired after fulfilling Ruth's request for a large order of hot dogs and soda before a game, which resulted in Ruth being unable to play that day. Now that was wrong. Was he supposed to say no to the Babe?

@geezerette, Cat's Cradle really hit me in the day
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/1/16 5:48pm redkayak:

Nope. Can't say no to the Babe.
  Thu. 9/1/16 5:49pm Brendan:

But then he played the Babe in The Babe Ruth Story.

Breakfast of Champions probably most impressed me, thanks in part to the hokey illustrations, but Cat's Cradle, Sirens of Titan, Slaughterhouse Five... I do miss KV,Jr.

Funny. I was just thinking today of the physics of rockets: like holding a pencil vertically in your palm & trying to push it upward - like all the U.S.'s in the 1950s...

The etymology of "mucilage": "Middle French mucilage viscid material found in certain plants (1314 in Old French as musillage ; also in forms muscillage , muscillagine (c1500)), viscid preparation used in medicine (1690), mucus (1810) < post-classical Latin mucilago viscous secretion, mucus (c400)..."
