"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

the thermometer says 24 degrees! my behind! it feels like -10 outside
  Fri. 12/15/17 9:40am wfmu listener phillip:

anyone else not freezing in front of a tiny space heater this morning in the bronx new york?
  Fri. 12/15/17 9:43am queems:

the heat is up so high in my office that my sinuses feel like sandpaper
Avatar    Fri. 12/15/17 9:43am Chris from DC:

A little surprising to see Chuck Johnson on the Pop Ambient comp, but this is nice.
  Fri. 12/15/17 9:47am wfmu listener phillip:

heat and hot water broke last night for the whole building. the moron super says may be Monday before its fixed
  Fri. 12/15/17 9:52am queems:

that’s crazy. can you call 311 or something?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/15/17 9:53am steveo:

Yep pretty damn cold today. I can remember John from the early 00's i think he came on at noon but we couldn't badger him on the comment board back then. I also remember when the year 2000 was the future. Sorry to hear about your heat Phillip. I agree with queems can't hurt to get the city involved.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/15/17 9:56am steveo:

that zorn should be about a half hour longer
  Fri. 12/15/17 9:57am queems:

very tasteful xmas music, thank you
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/15/17 10:11am BronwynB:

morning john and everyone!
  Fri. 12/15/17 10:11am basement:

if the super is not a real plumber then the landlord should have a licenced plumber that they call ..if the landlord cannot verify they have a contracted plumber then HPD of NYC will assign one but it takes longer due to burecracy and the volume of NO Heat related calls coming in ..the more tenants who call may increase response time....good luck or go buy small electric quartz heater ...google it

bi-hour, that was really cool.

PEACE All. The Duraflame IR space heater is supposed to be very very good. We have one in the other office that is unheated. Make sure it blows air and is not merely a radiator.
