I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

I wonder if that teeny elevator goes to the Being John Malkovich universe?

I was just wondering that!

Hello, james, my radio family Scraps, and fred! Glad to have you all here and so happy to be back on the radio.

Or is it Mujic?
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 12:15pm Mayuko:

Good afternoon to you too, David! Happy to have you here!
Rickwaukee, Muppets for that Mugic? They must be even crazier than Cookie monster.

Hola, Sam!!! Great to have you here!
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 12:17pm fred:

I really like all I've heard from this Jamire Williams record. I had a strong negative opinion of solo drum pieces, until I got a Max Roach as a gift when I left my previous job

Yeah, that Jamire Williams thing was rather a fun record.

Is that the opening Yippie Yippie thing for Joe McGasko?

Hi, thanks for tuning in coelacanth∅!!

Yes, it's the source for Joe's opening theme (and Cheri Pi's avatar)

music to spring clean by....

Of course my confessing doubts about drummers summoned the drummer boss. I repented, Doug, I swear!

@Dave B - You are not the only one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/1/17 12:38pm Brian in UK:

Hello Mayuko and folks. Oh yes, Spring cleaning. Inside and Outside.
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 12:39pm Mayuko:

It's good to hear these music are helping people stay motivated to cleaning! My show is doing somethin! (and hallo, Dave B!)
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 12:39pm Mayuko:

Hello, Brian in UK, thanks for tuning in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/1/17 12:41pm Brian in UK:

Well David we have done it. Europe in the rear view mirror.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 4/1/17 12:41pm David D:

Yes, thanks Mayuko, you are getting me though a major reorganization of our apartment right now! Please send subliminal messages on what to keep and what to throw away...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 4/1/17 12:42pm David D:

@Brian: Yes, I hope it all goes well for someone. All my British friends here have been freaking out...
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 12:44pm listener james from westwood:

soft Saturday sounds are most welcome! Proofreading going smoothly as a result!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/1/17 12:44pm Brian in UK:

David, have you used it in five years if not, out with it.

The Little Britain attitude is what I detest. We must think back to the last World War and why there was a need for a European Union.
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 12:46pm fred:

@David and Brian: A bunch of EU researchers I know who are in UK labs are getting worried. Nobody knows what's going to happen or when. They get the hit of becoming foreign immigrants plus loss of EU funding
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 4/1/17 12:47pm David D:

Brian, wise words on all accounts! In any case, it is particularly difficult for many people here who will be directly affected by it and are unsure about their not-so-distant futures.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 4/1/17 12:48pm David D:

Yes, Fred, it is unsettling people and their life plans on both sides of the Channel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/1/17 12:49pm Brian in UK:

It was posited as a simple question but there were no simple answers.

Five Leaves Left refers to Rizla cigarette papers that warned you when there were five left in the packet. Think Nick D liked a herbal smoke.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/1/17 12:50pm Brian in UK:

Mayuko, guessing that Charles Amirkhanian is an Armenian.
Avatar Sat. 4/1/17 12:51pm Dave B:

Like Peking Duck... It used to be pronounced the same here
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 12:52pm fred:

People actually say Peking in France, even today
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 4/1/17 12:54pm David D:

In Germany too, for the record...
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 12:57pm fred:

Thanks to a successful marathon, there is a WFMU for one more year. That's all I need to know
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/1/17 12:57pm Brian in UK:

A John Lennon quote, not sure if it is him but heck. "Reality leaves a lot to the imagination".
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:06pm Mayuko:

@Brian Oh, it was him quoting it from somewhere else? It is actually hard to imagine that it was him inventing that phrase, that must have been just what people would say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/1/17 1:08pm Brian in UK:

I agree but still like the quote.
Avatar Sat. 4/1/17 1:08pm Dave B:

I missed the quote... what was it?
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:08pm Mayuko:

Seems like Charles Amirkhanian recorded this in California, he must be an Armenian American? There is(was?) big Armenian community there in the west coast, right? I learned this because I loved William Saroyan.
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:10pm Mayuko:

By the way the description says that this Giuseppe Ielasi track is recorded "to be played at low volume".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/1/17 1:10pm Brian in UK:

There is Little Armenia in LA.
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:10pm fred:

It looks like Horse Lords are playing with Cloud Become Your Hand tonight in the basement of a bar in Paris. Given the date I was skeptical, but it seems legit, or a very elaborate prank to fool a dozen people. I can't miss a chance to see Horse Lords, so I may have to leave early
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:11pm Mayuko:

@Dave B "Life is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans".

Haha! I hope it's not a prank!

Hi, Mayuko and Drummerinos. In case anyone was wondering, there was no Elvis Costello on Michael Shelley's program today.
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:14pm fred:

@Ken: What everybody is really wondering is whether there were oreos waiting for Mayuko today
Avatar Sat. 4/1/17 1:15pm paul b:

John Fahey has a song called the "Rise and downfall of the Adelphi rolling grist mill" which i think about nearly every day when I bicycle past it on my way to work. Particularly in the spring when it looks especially pastoral.
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:16pm Mayuko:

Ken, I heard some weird thing on his show this morning while I was prepping for my show. An interview with lots of echos and effects and some random questions and answers. Sounded more like a long experimental collage piece. Then again I only heard it partially, so maybe I just didn't understand the context.
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:23pm Mayuko:

Hello, paul b, thanks for tuning in! His music does sound well-suited for spring! It did match my mood this past week for sure anyway.

This Ielasi track is Brycey!
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:33pm Mayuko:

@Rickwaukee oh I love that! it did sound like telegraph. or that wire thing. (I know you commenters all told me what that thing was called before, but then I have bad memory...)

New Guinea, the culturally and linguistically most diverse island/place in the world.

Isn't Ideologic Organ Stephen O'Malley's label? So cool that he's releasing this
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 4/1/17 1:35pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Mayuko - That was likely Longmont Potion Castle with the sound effects. www.longmontpotioncastle.com
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:36pm Mayuko:

Yeah, this album is "curated" by Stephen O'Malley, though I'm not sure what that means. Welcome on board, northguineahills!!
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:37pm Mayuko:

I'll check that out, Ken, thanks! I was so curious but didn't have time to investigate what was going on.
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:40pm fred:

@NGH: I've been away or drunk for a while (Sonic Protest, you know) so I hope you won't mind if ask again about that nice job you were hoping to get. Any news?
  Sat. 4/1/17 1:43pm Ike:

Awesome sounds!

I'm really enjoying this Occult Orientated Crime track

@fred He's a guy from Netherland with soooooo many aliases/names! That was one of them...

Yukihiro Takahashi!!
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:50pm Mayuko:

I heard that I don't play much Yukihiro despite of being on the DRUMMER stream! So here it is. Haha.
  Sat. 4/1/17 1:51pm Rickwaukee:

. . . guest starring Robert Wagner . . . Morgan Fairchild . . . Norman Fell
Avatar    Sat. 4/1/17 1:56pm fred:

I was wrong, but thanks for playing him. Back when I first found out about YMO, his records were impossible to find, but that was because I didn't know where to look.
Thanks for this, I'm off to see Horse Lords (I hope)
  Sat. 4/1/17 2:02pm Rickwaukee:

Thanks, BIG M!

Thanks, Mayuko. Time for an Oreo break!
