Charles Mingus said jazz was a word invented to separate musicians from their money. Music for a Free World brings us together, drawing listeners to the healing power of smooth free jazz. Each week, surprise guests bring their own sides to spin and their instruments of choice to spontaneously jam.

Welcome to the Free World!

Hello Dave and Jimmy and others!
Can't believe I missed Joe McPhee, but that archive got hit! In my defense, I was at a live show, and it's been too long
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Dave Sewelson:

fred...that's cool..you can have a day off once in a awhile, especially if you go to a live show...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm fred:

Let me rephrase that: if I ever think about skipping a live show for a radio one that will be archived, please punch me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Dave Sewelson:

we practice non-violence...we will pinch you tho
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm fred:

Pinch, punch, point is I shouldn't give you the opportunity. Priorities...

Hi Dave Jimmy and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm fred:

That link says "No upcoming events"? Sad trombone, or whatever the drum equivalent
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:16pm WR:

Welcome guest, Jimmy Bennington, Hi Dave!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Dave Sewelson:

DavidJ and WR! yeah

This dog look as fierce as Arrow
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm fred:

Some (not all) of these university taught students are very lost and would love to get your insight. Not in opposition to what they learn, unless you insist. Toss-up if you do
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Dave Sewelson:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm fred:

Thanks for the answer, Jimmy! What I got out of college was to learn how to learn, and I got that by skipping classes. I'm such a bad role model
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm Dave Sewelson:

Jimmy Bennington sez thanks fred.....I think he may be familiar to the folks in France...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm fred:

Not to me, but I'm more into the noise scene. But when he plays around here, I'll be there, unless I'm somewhere else, as Yogi Berra would have said (with 58 mostly dance shows booked, and Instants Chavirés next, many days are staked already)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Dave Sewelson:

excellent fred....

Greetings, Dave, fred, anyone else lurking about!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Dave Sewelson:

hey Baba Bee...thanks for stopping by....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

sounding wonderful here, not familiar with Jimmy Bennington, and always appreciative for all I learn here at WFMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm fred:

My priorities go this way: Cynthia Loemij, Byambajargal Gombodorj, contemporary dance, then live music (central Asia), live music (friends involved), music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Dave Sewelson:

thanks for the clarity fred...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

I just heard some live music at an island gathering with local farmers, bakers. The band leader had a Zydeco background, but there was a range of musical genres, folx just having fun. I'll take live music wherever I can get it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm fred:

Jimmy might be playing at La Dynamo, a place I like a lot, but just out of reach for me because of public transit issues

ooh I like this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

yeah, rings on the tree!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Gina Bacon:

Happy Saturday, Dave, Jimmy & everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm fred:

@Dave: Maybe I lied: Cynthia Loemij was dancing two years ago, but a ticket was 80 euros. I thought about it, contemplated it, but couldn't do it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Dave Sewelson:

GINA!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Dave Sewelson:

fred...i am pinching you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm fred:

@Mx. Baba Bee: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm fred:

@Dave: Too late. I had opportunities to meet her too, but I'm nothing. I once walked for hours around a lake not to fall asleep before one of her show (I shouldn't have got a ticket but someone took pity), but when someone who knew her offered to introduce me as a fan, I declined. I had nothing to offer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

thanks, fred, I was away from the screen puttering around, and will investigate that video in awhile
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Dave Sewelson:

i hear you fred...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

and yet we can never really know what might be meaningful to the other person
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

then again, I've been completely clueless about the identity of most notable people I have met until after they were gone. so I hope they enjoyed the mundane exchanges of pleasantries we shared.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

and this does include people I was a huge fan of!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

enjoying this Svobodni so much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm fred:

@Mx Baba Bee: I got you wrong but since I got that free subscription, it was worth a try
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Dave Sewelson:

I'm bailing out. I know I need punishment but how? I'll stay away from the station for a while, or more
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Dave Sewelson:

fred.....staying with the station would be a punishment
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 4:29pm WR:

Laters Fred.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 4:33pm WR:

@3:23 @Mx. Baba Bee, sounds nice. I have yet to go to live music since pandemic started.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

take care, fred…
WR, it was a humble outdoor farmers market, however I did go all the way to Seattle a few weeks ago for an indoor performance of Negativland. It was a bit overwhelming.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

I've been lying around listening to these beautiful sounds while a huge storm gathers outside
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

Thanks, Jimmy, this has been great getting to know your story and your sounds. Thanks, Dave, thanks WFMU folx!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Gina Bacon:
