While I'm not familiar with the Willis track, what I'm hearing is about what I would expect based on the band name and track name.

Great! Thanks Jeff for double checking!

Hi, Meghan. February is here. No full moons this month. Took me a minute to find the rabbit in the drawing. Is there a second rabbit?
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 12:12pm northguineahills:

Second time in days I've heard "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic " in as many days on WFMU (not complaining, I'm celebrating!).
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 12:12pm βrian:

Reminds me of that novel, The Long Night of White Chickens.

only one rabbit that I see.... just trying to start the month off correctly by saying rabbit rabbit

i have not noticed any positive response when i've played this extraordinary track in the pub. i will keep trying.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/1/18 12:18pm Meghan:

when I used to bartend, we had the worst classic rock playing, so coworker and I would try to find the longest (listenable) songs we could find to take over the jukebox. This was on that list.... maybe it's the pubs you are going to.....
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 12:19pm Parq:

Glad Jeff got it fixed in time for this smoking Isaac track.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 12:22pm βrian:

The only pub where I was a regular, the first bartender (of two) ruled the playlist. No requests, no classic rock (unless they were feeling cynical).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/1/18 12:23pm Jeff Moore:

@Parq: I didn't do nothin'. I just arrived in time to confirm that Meghan had already beaten the computers back into submission.

Hiya, Meghan. Wow, the Captain right there as I check in.
This must be the place!
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 12:30pm northguineahills:

@βrian: they're already here, but they usually stay close to campus, so, outside of Saturdays, I rarely see them. The nice part about summers here is the town empties out.

Summers are pretty quiet on the isthmus, too, save for the occasional troupe of marching band campers, etc.

hahaha! Yes!
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 12:35pm coelacanth∅:

Meghan (@12.18) "my" pub you could hear anything. what gets played is as varied as wfmu.
but there are some regulars who play the worst gangsta rap and usually 20-40$ worth so if i see them come in i'll put a tenner in there.
it's $1/song but some are 1/2 that, and if an album gets enough plays it goes into the 50cent section.
i've been the primary reason for several albums getting reduced.
  Thu. 2/1/18 12:40pm queems:

this one is super fun
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 12:40pm coelacanth∅:

...i think i can get hot buttered soul in there at 1/2 price. i have twice played walk on by both times with much excitement.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 12:46pm northguineahills:

There is plenty of good 90s music! (I was there)
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 12:47pm βrian:

T-shirts with no pocket make no sense to me.

I'm a navy blue kind of guy myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/1/18 12:53pm Carmichael:

Heya Meghan and aquanauts. I'm here at work, hacking my brains out with a chest cold. Many of the bars 'round here use TouchTunes, which uses the internet. I have the app, so I can download "coins" and enter music from the comfort of my stool. Also, if some punk asses are programming ghetto music, an extra coin is all it takes to jump the queue and play your tune next.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/1/18 12:55pm Meghan:

oh no! Feel better Carmichael! I suffered from a chest cold in December. It was miserable! And yes, I love that app. I've used it many times to override someone's bad choice of music!
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 12:57pm northguineahills:

hey, I like some ghetto music.... some...
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:01pm still b/p:

A friend handed off several t-shirts to me that he’d ordered printed when momentarily extra- amused by a line. I ain’t likely to wear ‘em, but have to be judicious in re-passing. They say, “As my Irish granny always said: WHALE OIL BEEF HOOKED”
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:04pm northguineahills:

digging this Pierre Antoine, a different take on the Fela sound. New to me!
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:04pm Parq:

What a great groove this Ivory Coast number is!
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:05pm Parq:

I'm picturing a jukebox war once all the regulars in those bars get that app. Not one track played to completion.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:06pm βrian:

Yeah, I think it's better to leave the playlist to the bar staff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/1/18 1:06pm Passaic River Blues:

@still b/p: I had shirt as a kid that simply read "Eejit" (I wore it because I was one, I guess). Your friend's shirt concept is BEAUTIFUL. Thank you for sharing!
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:07pm northguineahills:

Meghan is ghettoing us! :)
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:07pm JakeGould:

Collaborative jukeboxes are bullshit. THERE I SAID IT! Just let it play. At least if it’s good stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/1/18 1:08pm Meghan:

hehehe..... when you said you liked ghetto music, I had to double check to see if I had posted this up early!
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:08pm Parq:

One thing I know about my own musical taste is this; no matter who you are, even without having ever met you, I can state for a fact that I like something you hate.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:09pm northguineahills:

I actually haven't heard that Mittoo, and I have a lot of his music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/1/18 1:10pm Meghan:

I think the bar staff should totally have control of what is being played. as a bartender, you are trying to create an atmosphere, and since you are being paid by tips, you are curating the scene. Having music that could be good talking points and conversation starters. At least that is how I view it!
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:13pm JakeGould:

Also, I know some people frown on music being called “wallpaper” but honestly sometimes that is what it is and sometimes wallpaper can be nice.

And there’s just so much Goerge Thorogood anyone can take past teh age of 16.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:15pm βrian:

And then there's the option of having no music at all, so people can — *gasp* — converse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/1/18 1:15pm Carmichael:

I and a friend are collaborating on a St. Paddys tee that has Guinness foam dripping down a pint glass all the way around the tee, with the words "Patrick 3:17" on the front. Please don't steal this idea ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/1/18 1:18pm Meghan:

There is nothing more awkward than no music in a bar.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:18pm northguineahills:

I go to bars to read, I need music to read....
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:19pm βrian:

Oh, I completely disagree. It can be really nice.

Wait, how is this person's butt like ice?
  Thu. 2/1/18 1:20pm queems:

that’s what i want to know
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:20pm βrian:

The very worst is when the music level is raised, to compete with the conversation level. Then it's just time to go home.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:22pm Parq:

βrian, that's bad enough in bars, but what I really hate is when it happens in sit-down restaurants -- as it often does in NYC. What the hell do they think the customers are in there for?
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:22pm still b/p:

I can enjoy music in a bar, but often when it’s site-choosing time for a drink, I urge “Somewhere we can talk!” Extended yelling sucks, and hoarsens next morning.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:22pm northguineahills:

Hollie Cook was played yesterday, I want to say on Jack Mello's show.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:23pm northguineahills:

@still b/p: "What??"

Hi, this wasn't Ghetto Organ by Jackie Mitoo. It didn't even sound like anything from JM....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/1/18 1:26pm Meghan:

It was, I bought it....
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:27pm northguineahills:

I went two weeks w/o heat in Brooklyn 3 years ago,and my scalp flaked off from the bone-chilling showers. Wearing a winter coats indoors was fun. (The missus was smart, and showered at the gym or at friends' places. I can't imagine surviving the whole winter w/o heat, unless I was at a squat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/1/18 1:27pm Meghan:

As for music in bars.... I need music on in a bar. But I do agree, I like music to be at a level where I am able to hear the person I am talking to

NGH, it's only 2 of my 4 radiators.... and we have hot water, so that is good. It's manageable, but annoying.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:29pm northguineahills:

In Gainesville, we have a certain antagonism for Tallahassee, for superficial and pragmatic reasons.
  Thu. 2/1/18 1:29pm Filip:

Maybe it was someones remix with 10% of Jackie Mittoo in it. Ghetto Organ is a JM classic, so pls don't mess with it :-)

Another finest-kind show, Meghan, and thanks. I always enjoy hearing your opinions about bars, since you know them from both sides of the counter.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:56pm βrian:

As far as I know, we have only one local bar that has no TV. That's a treasure. Most all bars are sports bars here. Ugh.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:56pm still b/p:

Waited until my device change allowed pasting this from an article, and excuse the length, but it's such a nice -- no, NOT nice -- tangent to the topic of media curating/control and associated risks. Thought timing was funny that I'd read this today just shortly before the bar music-choice discussion, in a profile of a local rough guy with a father as rough or rougher, and when junior was a kid...

"when he was in traction in the hospital, a male nurse would come in and switch the TV in his room to coverage of Watergate. The hearings were riveting the nation, but not its seven-year-olds. 'Finally, one day my father come in … dragged him out into the hallway and kicked the shit out of him, fucked him up real bad.' Cartoon time resumed immediately."

Careful out there. And brogue or no brogue, I've hit my expletive posting quota.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:57pm βrian:

That talk-singing sounds like Marky to me.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:57pm Parq:

βrian, yeah, here too. I hate 'em.
Avatar Thu. 2/1/18 1:59pm Sem:

I suggest you have a look at Sintra and environs, βrian. Stayed there for a week once time, could get the train into Lisbon ( and avoid the maniac drivers), and north of Sintra, pretty relaxed places.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/1/18 1:59pm Meghan:

oh damn! though in the current events here, I'd rather watch cartoons over what our politics is, which in itself is like a cartoon!
