Just got OFF work!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:03pm northguineahills:

As for someone who usually works until 9-10pm, it was nice getting off before 3 today (moving the office).
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:03pm David D:

Greetings Mark, Sem, and Gary!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:03pm David D:

And NGH!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:04pm Mark Hurst:

Hi Sem!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:11pm Sem:

Oh, La Bottine Souriante! How great to hear them here.
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:12pm David D:

Oui la chose est claire avec la Bottine...
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:14pm redkayak:

Good afternoon/evening all :)
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:16pm redkayak:

Happy May Day, at that :)
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:16pm David D:

A very happy May Day to you, redkayak!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:22pm redkayak:

Aye-aye, David!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:23pm Sem:

Steeleye Span punching in. Love this band.
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:27pm fred:

Good afternoon/evening David and all. Enjoying this show a lot so far
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:27pm doctorjazz:

Hi all! Pretty busy, but checking in!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:29pm David D:

Welcome Fred and Doctorjazz!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:30pm fred:

Nice that you played Alpha and The Wailers, my best pal at work is from Ivory Coast, he'd definitely like that
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:33pm fred:

Was that Kasai and al. the project featuring members of Konono and Deerhoof?
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:35pm David D:

Yes, this is the track with everyone, in fact!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:37pm David D:

And all my old Ivorian friends are big fans of Alpha Blondy as well, I suppose that is a must.
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:43pm fred:

He likes Alpha, but he swears by Steel Pulse
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:47pm fred:

I should get that track on my LinkedIn profile
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:50pm David D:

Musical profiles can never be bad
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:56pm fred:

The Clash should weed out the trash
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 4:58pm fred:

Especially on May 1st
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 5:08pm Sem:

Cheerful/bitter: this tune has it all!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 5:11pm David D:

Fred: They could be on every week - but then it would have to be called Radio Clash.
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 5:11pm Stanley:

Be a jerk. Go to work
Yup, that's me.
(Hi David and listeners)
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 5:11pm David D:

Sem: Yes, that version ends surprisingly cheerfully.
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 5:16pm David D:

Evening, Stanley!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 5:43pm Sem:

Munka is work, Munkanélküliek dala = no work. Agglutinative languages just kill me.
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 5:46pm David D:

Yes, isn't it great? Moving from agglutinative to isolating next...
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 5:51pm Sem:

I've heard Canadian First Nations chanting/singing, and it sounds very much like this, minus that high-strung fiddle-like instrument I am hearing in this.
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 5:55pm Sem:

I see this is my stop. Thanks you, David, always a pleasure to hear the music you bring each week. G'night to you, and all.
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 5:56pm David D:

Thanks Sem, and yes, sometimes the commonalities between folk musics are uncanny.
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 6:12pm kuba:

drunk "hiiii" everyone!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 6:13pm David D:

Na zdrowie, Kuba!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 6:14pm kuba:

indeed, and a hearty "jak się masz" to you. where's that lake photo from?
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 6:23pm Mayuko:

Good evening, David and all! (hellos my radio family fred if you're still here)
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 6:27pm David D:

Good evening, Mayuko! How are things over your way?
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 6:28pm David D:

Kuba: That's from near Cospudener See (not C. itself).
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 6:30pm Mayuko:

Just got back from my first proper vacation in forever, to 16 packages of materials I need to work on delivered to my studio while I was away. Hopefully your music programming will help me work this out!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 6:34pm David D:

I hope so, Mayuko - it's all about the work tonight...
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 6:42pm David D:

Kuba: Nice new logo, by the way, if you're still there.
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 6:54pm northguineahills:

Whoops, took a nap, thanks David
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 6:58pm Mayuko:

This has indeed been perfect theme for me tonight! Thanks David!
Avatar Tue. 5/1/18 7:00pm David D:
