Hello filling-in Doug!

Hey, you know what I always enjoy hearing - jazz which was either part of the New York scene in the late '50s through the '60s, or (and this can be interesting) which whatever its provenance *sounds* like it was made in New York in the late '50s through the '60s.

But, you know, in a selection curated by someone who knows more than I do.

@Troy Wharf
I considered that Homer & Jethro to be ridiculous vocals. Silly me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 12:15pm David D:

Almost gluten Abend here, now. And we do actually have a decent bagel shop in town, believe it or not.

HI Doug and Dougskateers! Fill in for the fill in. Take you out on the phone app, time for the dog walk.
I'd request Willem Breuker and the Kollektief if possible, haven't heard him in a bit.

Umm or Oum, spelled either way, I love to play! Thanks Sem Chumbo!

There's some compilation called OM that I used to play tracks from a lot that's got Steve Reich swinging a microphone back and forth in front of an amp.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 12:21pm Doug Schulkind:

Monica played this Omar Souleyman on her fill-in show for Sheila B over on the FMU mothership yesterday. It's been pounding in my head ever since. In a GOOD way.

Fadista Amália Rodrigues would not go amiss here.
  Sat. 5/6/17 12:37pm Dean:

Had to go shopping for first half hour of show. En route the local college station played Yes's "Heart of the Sunrise," which is what I would have requested this morning. No need to play it.

Doug: Okey Dokey.
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 12:50pm fred:

I remember that the old site had a random quote going "Where Grudges Are Still Harbored Against John Lennon For Breaking Up Fluxus", or something like that. I always loved seeing it because I like Yoko better than the Beatles, in no small part because of this track
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 12:50pm Stanley:

@Sem Chumbo - wow, nice!
Mrs Stanley and I are over for a short break in June. Any recomendations where to hear fado music (avoiding the trappa del touristas)?

Another D2D suggestion: Ola Belle Reed
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 1:33pm Doug Schulkind:

Yusef Lateef is my all-time music hero/guru/rabbi. When he died, I broadcast five consecutive memorial tribute programs.
  Sat. 5/6/17 1:33pm Dean:

I don't recall a strict musical divide in high school, but that might be because my buddies before high school all had older siblings who listened to the Dead, Joe Cocker, Derek & the Dominoes, Allman Bros., Steppenwolf, Led Zeppelin, Procol Harum, etc. I first heard Yes when I spied the 8-track of Close to the Edge in the back of a neighbor's VW, c.1973. Asked to borrow it, played it, shared it with friends. A formative experience for us.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 1:33pm Doug Schulkind:

Doug!!!!!!!!!!!
Just finished work. Thank you so so much for covering Bill covering me!
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 1:46pm Doug Schulkind:

Oh hey, Monica!!! Any suggestions/requests, my dear?!
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 1:47pm Doug Schulkind:

Hip hooray, it's Mayuko!
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 1:48pm Doug Schulkind:

Paul Chambers on bass right there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/6/17 1:49pm Troy Wharf:

I'm nineteen again, thanks Doug.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/6/17 1:51pm Troy Wharf:

Hello Monica, apologies for missing the fill-in. Thank heaven for the archives.
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 1:51pm fred:

Mayuko! Doug needs help deciding what to play, you should suggest something
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 1:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

This has really been a blast with all the requests coming in on the fly. Do or DIY, indeed.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 1:55pm Doug Schulkind:

Playlist and archive for Monica fantastic show yesterday: wfmu.org...
  Sat. 5/6/17 1:56pm slawooy:

How about going back to Copenhagen 1974 for some Sonny Rollins and Rufus Harley 'First Move'?
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 1:56pm Mayuko:

I've been putting myself under intensive Brazilian music education recently, so something from Brazil perhaps? Specifically, been listening Samba mostly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 1:57pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Also cool: the go-go dancer (I guess?) in the upper left of the image.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 1:57pm Doug Schulkind:

@slawooy
Let me see what I got!

@Mayuko
You bet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 1:58pm Dave in Vermont:

@Ken, that's the 'canary' making sure the smoke isn't toxic. If s/he collapses everyone else will run away.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 1:59pm northguineahills:

Thanks Doug!
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 1:59pm fred:

Yeah Ola Belle!
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 1:59pm Doug Schulkind:

@Ken From Hyde Park
I'm glad you noticed that. Been trying to figure out what (who) the heck that is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 2:01pm melinda:

I 2nd the samba request. More banjo might be nice, too.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:02pm Monica:

maybe some Yokahama Ramblers??
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:03pm Doug Schulkind:

Did someone mention Loretta Lynn?
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:03pm glenn:

banjo samba!
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:03pm Doug Schulkind:

I have plenty of Ramblers, Mo, but none from Yokahama!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 2:05pm Dave in Vermont:

Sorry, Loretta. Being fertile is a pre-existing condition.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:06pm glenn:

and in loretta's case, that pre existing condition came early and often.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:07pm Doug Schulkind:

No banjo samba, glenn, but I do have Brazilian country & western. Up next.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:10pm Doug Schulkind:

How's about some Hackberry Ramblers, Monica?
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:10pm Dean:

Brazilian Alpine c&w
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:11pm Doug Schulkind:

Sounds like a Ben & Jerry's flavor, Dean.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:12pm Doug Schulkind:

@slawooy
Rufus H. next...
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:13pm Monica:

these ramblers will do just fine, doug! by the way, the drummer stream got me through a teeth cleaning this week. had the headphones on throughout and it was hugely calming.
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 2:13pm fred:

Ice cream reference! Doug, you sure know how to fill in for Mayuko
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 2:14pm Mayuko:

Haha!!
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:15pm Doug Schulkind:

This is a fill in show, Monica, not a filling show.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:16pm Monica:

hahaha!
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:16pm Dean:

I enjoy the sound of my teeth cleanings, a mash-up of Polwechsel and Tod Dockstader's Aerial.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:18pm glenn:

mmmm. grilled cheese and pickles for lunch.
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:20pm Dean:

Heh, I just served my daughter a picnic of grilled cheese and strawberries in our front yard. It was her inspiration.
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 2:20pm fred:

I'm hesitant to make yet another request, but I'll suggest Marcus Belgrave (I had another idea first, but it wouldn't fit)
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:22pm Doug Schulkind:

I've got some Marcus!
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:24pm Doug Schulkind:

Good thing I wasn't playing this when you were at the dentist, Monica.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 2:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Dean - That sounds great. Which reminds me, I'm about out of strawberries and I had to throw out my cheese because it molded. Going to need to make a grocery run pretty soon.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:26pm Monica:

my gums are bleeding already:(
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:27pm Doug Schulkind:

It's hard to make out on this scratchy old record, but the dentist drill sound effects are killer on this.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:28pm Monica:

thx @troy wharf. the wfmu archives are a beautiful thing.
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:28pm Dean:

I'd give my eye teeth for a copy of this record.
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 2:28pm fred:

Hey people, suggest stuff to Doug before I lapse into stuff you don't want to hear
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:29pm Dean:

"Free Bird"!

...?
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:29pm Doug Schulkind:

Did someone mention Tod Dockstader?
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:30pm Dean:

Charlie Parker is innocent!
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 2:30pm fred:

@Dean: The Keiji Haino version?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 2:30pm Ken From Hyde Park:

More Percocet for Monica! Stat!
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:30pm Dean:

@fred: Isn't his the original?
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:32pm Dean:

If I close my eyes it's like I'm sitting in my dentist's office.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:34pm Monica:

@ken, next round's on me.
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 2:34pm fred:

@Dean: maybe you shouldn't close your eyes then, though it's dubiously viable as a long-term strategy
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:35pm Dean:

The upside to imaginary visits to the dentist, however, is no co-pay.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:37pm glenn:

how's about some light crust doughboys?
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 2:37pm fred:

@Dean: looks like you'll soon have imaginary coverage, that fits
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:38pm Doug Schulkind:

No go no dough, glenn.
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:40pm Dean:

No kidding. Nothingcare. Social Pretend Security. Monopoly Money Pension.
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:41pm slawooy:

thanks Doug. Ballake by Bembeya Jazz National? or Clay Pigeon's monologue from his show two days ago?
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:42pm Doug Schulkind:

Easier to get my hands on the Bembeya.
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:43pm Jeff g.:

Well this is a lovely surprise.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:44pm Monica:

nice...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 2:44pm melinda:

@slawooy that was some monologue.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:44pm Doug Schulkind:

You think YOU'RE surprised, Jeff G?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 2:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@fred - Good luck on your election tomorrow. If France can show a path to sanity, other countries can follow their example.
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 2:44pm fred:

Thanks again Doug, I'll wait a little more for my last suggestion/request. It's not appropriate for your show, so I hope someone else steps up
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 2:45pm melinda:

I liked the Kerouac reading.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:46pm northguineahills:

oh, you're still on, gneiss!
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:47pm northguineahills:

I dig Doug's stream-of-consciousness selecting...!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/6/17 2:50pm Troy Wharf:

Wow, Doug you never cease to amaze. What say you folks?
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 2:50pm fred:

The one you don't want to heed: Afrirampo, specifically the last track on disc 2 of their We Are Uchu No Ko record
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:50pm northguineahills:

Every GTDS dj should do a 24 hours dj set once a year, it would be amazing!
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:51pm Doug Schulkind:

I'll save that for next time, fred! I go grab some lunch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/6/17 2:51pm Troy Wharf:

Trust the olives are Kalimata.
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:52pm Doctorjazz:

Trovesi!
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 2:54pm fred:

@Doug: I only mentioned it because I love that track. As I said earlier, it wouldn't fit your show, so I intentionally waited until you had no chance to actually play it
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:55pm Doug Schulkind:

@fred
As soon as I realize my show has a "fit," it's time to adjust the show!
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:57pm Doug Schulkind:

And for anyone who ever thought I'd never play Dvorak on the show, he's on trumpet here. Jim Dvorak.
  Sat. 5/6/17 2:58pm slawooy:

@melinda that was the moment a freeform structure
exposed its true selflessness
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 2:58pm fred:

@Doug: No! Your show is personal, and that's a good thing!
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 2:59pm Doug Schulkind:

Oh for a universe that would allow me to just do this everyday and still pay for stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/6/17 3:02pm Troy Wharf:

Thanks, Boss.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 3:02pm Doug Schulkind:

@slawooy
What a great cut to go out on. Thank you for this. And thank you everyone. ♥♥♥ to you all. See you next Friday morning (unless D:O Radio needs a fill in tomorrow!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 3:03pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks for taking the helm, Doug. If you weren't available, someone would have to dial up the Old Codger. I think his phone number is 6.
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 3:03pm Mayuko:

Thanks again, Doug!!
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 3:05pm Doug Schulkind:

So much my pleasure, Mayuko!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 3:05pm doctorjazz:

Great stuff, Doug, catch you next time, thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/6/17 3:05pm Dave in Vermont:

Thanks, Doug.
I got a screen door put in and made some decent headway on my portfolio for my Linguistics capstone/TESOL certificate class.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 3:05pm glenn:

more like 666.
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 3:06pm Doug Schulkind:

Happy to help, Dave in Vermont!
Avatar    Sat. 5/6/17 3:30pm fred:

That was a three-hour show that just flew by. Just saying, totally hinting at someone"s show that should go from 2 to 3 hours
Avatar Sat. 5/6/17 3:32pm Doug Schulkind:

I agree totally, fred!
