Is it just my setup or the way I'm handling it, or does the GTD stream off the context-dependent main WFMU page continue to play automated GTDS programming after the programs start? It's possible I just caused what I was getting to be buffered.

Hi Doug and all!
Avatar Fri. 3/24/17 9:11am Doug Schulkind:

Howdy, melinda! Greetings, Listener Robert!

@Listener Robert
The Drummer Stream plays a continuous flow of sem-automated sounds. When a live show comes on the stream, that sound source hooks in "downstream" from the continuous flow, which is still running behind it. If the connection of the live programming buffers, it could kick you back to the always running flow behind it. Does that answer your question?

In a story about the many rock figures offering statements/tributes/tweets on Berry's death. I found it extremely weird when after including an Alice Cooper tweet, the reporter says parenthetically, "Cooper being well-known to some of us for this legendary cameo." Then had a link to a Wayne's World movie clip with Alice. I say WTF...Do they give prizes for tangents that are 99.9% irrelevant and 110% unsuited?

still b/p, we've had this conversation. CLEARLY, that's the author's only frame of reference for Alice, and the assumption i that's so for the readership. It's rather insulting and thoroughly shitty journalism. If there's an appropriate shorthand description, it's probably along the lines of "'70s shock-rocker". If a reader is curious about they, they can google.

Yes, WFMU once gave away as a premium a videocassette with footage of CB doing number 1 on some willing participants. I said they were underage, but actually I don't remember how young they were. I'm sure Google could clear this up in about 3.2 seconds.

Wikipedia says Johnny Johnson was in piano on Wee Wee Hours: en.wikipedia.org...
  Fri. 3/24/17 10:17am Listener Gregory:

Yes, "Wee Wee" seems piano-based and the vocal sounds more like Johnson to me (or even Charles Brown, though I don't think he ever backed Chuck). The record publisher may have "promoted" Berry from backup guitarist to leader.

Radio has always been a source of discovery (and inspiration). What you own you already know, so the the sense of discovery is obviously much weaker. One might think that one has heard a lot over the yerars. but the average WFMU playlist is at least 80 per cent completely unknown.

Avatar Fri. 3/24/17 10:57am Doug Schulkind:

One (of many) things I love about WFMU: Hearing something familiar or, egads, popular is our subversive avant garde moment of expression. And yet it is has all the power of something familiar and popular. Very weird and powerful.

@Doug: it's interesting to see the reactions to those subversive moments when the popular tunes are played. I didn't know the Doors could stir up so much controversy until I heard them played on FMU.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/24/17 11:12am Hugo:

Well, I wouldn't mind hearing "Viola Lee Blues" again. Possibly, my fave Dead tune, though not much of a tune, really. Just an excuse to jump into 20 minutes of improv. Which is fine with me. I just got a 50th anniversary edition of the debut album which has an extra cd of a Vancouver concert from mid-66. With "Viola Lee Blues" of course. The Dead was bluesy in those days!

I read that singing over piano was also the case with Nat King Cole too. I read that he made some recordings of excellent instrumental jazz piano, but the record company was like: "As long as your singing brings in so much more revenue, we're not going to bother releasing any of this other stuff."

Perhaps so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/24/17 11:22am doctorjazz:

Nat Cole Trio made some great jazz records, (he did both instrumental and vocal recordings), but the popularity of the vocals caused it to become the main event.

Yes absolutely. Nat Cole actually had to sign contracts that forbid him from being credited on piano (if I am remembering correctly).
