How do, Doug and other ecstatics! Opened my listening day at 2:30 am (!!) to chase a noon deadline via the accompaniment of archives from Liz Berg and Bethany Ryker, two amazing women whose shows I do miss.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/31/18 8:07am Doug Schulkind:

I miss those great people/DJs, too, Listener James! On a related note, I have noticed that the new/upcoming WFMU schedule appears to have more women on it than ever before. #thrilling #stillmoreworktodo

Good news indeed! I am among those who count vs. the previous schedule. Hoping Zoe is able to do some fill-ins during her down time, but glad to see Therese, Amanda's new cohosting gig, and new-to-me Adrienne!

Quite surprised to see Ken taking a knee for a season, but yay for the Long Rally—primo show in general, and especially to have on while copyediting/proofreading!

@LJFW
Do you find instrumental music more compatible with editing? I always did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/31/18 8:30am listener james from westwood:

You know, I work for an editing service, and one of the staffers there asked the freelancers just this week what we listen to while doing editorial work. Wide, wide range of answers. In my case, I mentioned FMU in particular, and cited shows playing instrumental or not heavily lyrical music, but that I can also work with lyric-accompanied music, as long as it's not too jarring vs. the work or too familiar (like 5 or 6 classic-rock tunes in a row would be bad; I just follow along too closely; one "WFMU hit," no prob).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/31/18 8:32am listener james from westwood:

For super-intensive editing, playlists like Bryce's, Scott McD's, Noise & Syrup, A440/Stochastic, a lot of Kurt's, Pounding System, Lamin, and the like are my go-tos.

I've been real happy with the breadth and depth of some the new WFMU young 'uns. There are some on-mic styles that drive me crazy (bear in mind I left the US 20 years ago last week -- I accept that the language done changed), but FMU remains the station that plays the good stuff.

The dropping off was OK. The arriving home was a mess. We have three cats. One of them has been attached at the hip to our daughter. A constant companion. That cat is stomping around the house moaning and bereft. It is heartbreaking.

I once attended an Indian music and dance festival in Long Beach, CA. It took place in a large community auditorium, and a majority of the attendees were, not surprisingly, Indian. The women wore saris. I wore my customary t-shirt and jeans. One of the Indian women in a sari seated near me turned to me and said, "You're the only comfortably dressed person here." I thought that was funny, but I was also kinda surprised, because I'd always figured saris were comfortable.

Lakshmi Shankar performed during the festival.

On a desert island, I think I might opt for a food-based label, like Cantaloupe.

If memory serves me right, fred anderson ran the velvet lounge. Ken Vendermark got his start there. (Only have been to O'Hare)

I take no pun ever!

And you're right about Mr. Anderson.

@Doug I'd be a Numero Group recording artist if the One of Us Who Didn't Stay in Music wasn't being a butthead, sob sob.

Numero Dos Group?

I regret never making it to Velvet Lounge during visits to Chicago, but I did hear Vandermark at Empty Bottle in 2000.

I think I'll start calling my beloved "Sweet Beans."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/31/18 11:17am Goyim in the AM:

One of the principle songwriters in my ol' reissue worthy punk band is in the Looking Out For Numero Uno Group these days and wants too many numeros on his percentage of the project, thus we remain the province of collector scum and not a fancy NG box set.
  Fri. 8/31/18 11:18am Listener Gregory:

I made it to the Velvet Lounge twice. Fred Anderson is the only major musical figure who has called a taxi for me—twice, when it didn't come in a reasonable time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/31/18 11:19am Doug Schulkind:

Hey Listener Gregory. You're a taxi.

Now you've been called a taxi three times.

One should only once be late to a funeral.
  Fri. 8/31/18 11:27am still b/p:

I like that if you provided one of the pink Caddies, you and a friend could attend the event -- a condition and deal very strangely but pleasingly un-funeral-like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/31/18 11:27am coelacanth∅:

for some reason (maybe the pepto-bismol-ness of it) those late model pink cadillacs are even more hideous looking than their design necessitates

Did Charles make the same joke? I just now came up with it all by my ownself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/31/18 11:34am coelacanth∅:

(* = not MY president )
  Fri. 8/31/18 11:35am Dean:

The asterisk part. He routinely refers to "the president*" and "the administration*". The ribbon cutting is all yours, but certainly in a Piercian vein.

There was a tribute concert to Aretha Franklin in Detroit last night - on TV starting after midnight European time. Rather late, so I recorded the entire thing. Any one watching on the other side of the pond?

i have an album, but i don't recall which, that has an asterisk after each song title, with no reference to it anywhere. i thought it pretty funny, and obediently wasted a few minutes looking for an explanation.
