Favoriting Merrily We Roll Along with MHLee: Playlist from May 27, 2022 Favoriting

MHLee's avatar View MHLee's profile Favoriting

Merrily We Roll Along is a mish-mash of high energy lunacy, reverence, and irreverence for forgotten pop stars, love for Saturday morning cartoons, and exploration of the side of Bandcamp where I seem to be the only one purchasing. Bringing to you the odd and the upbeat from a growing collection of pre-rock novelties, classic and neo-Vaudeville, jug bands, polka, klezmer, and more at the convenient hour of 8-9 AM EST, Merrily We Roll Along starts the day off with a little light-hearted musical tomfoolery cut with an occasional comedy sketch. It's organic, free-range, cheese with the occasional onion thrown in.

Friday 8 - 9am (EST) | On WFMU's Sheena's Jungle Room

Hello? I hope Iy's coming through?

Recieving you loud and clear MHLee!

Oops, signal went dead for a while after your voice sounded intermitted. Now you're back again.

Mixxx froze for a moment on my end

This is the proto-Grateful Dead for the uninitiated

Jan Turkenburg:

Still going strong. I love the concept. I'm listening, while house-keeping :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15am
Jan Turkenburg:

Hey... as soon as you turn on the mike the signal goes stuttering again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16am
MHLee:

Is it my voice getting choppy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17am
Jan Turkenburg:

yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20am
MHLee:

Hmm... I need to get the next stopset to check something. I think it may have been user error last set. The first one appeared to be a software difficulty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22am
Jan Turkenburg:

Didn't know the Albert Whelan version of this song yet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23am
MHLee:

Great little comp called songs the Bonzos taught us which has it on it.
  8:23am
Androu B.:

Good Morning, MHLee & Merry Melodians!

Yes, I'm also confirming frequent drop-outs at my end, and they seem to only happen during the set breaks for some reason. However, that's not serving to distract from this entertaining show.
I'm also wondering if Courtney T. Edison is listening in and enjoying some of the choice vintage selections being played here.

Daaang, wanted to be up on time for this. Happy 5:23am, all!

Jan Turkenburg:

Just start up problems. Very few SJR DJs that didn't have that on the first show. Don't panic, we'll stay tuned!

First show? ... it happens all the time!

Yay, Muppet songs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29am
Jan Turkenburg:

Oh, had to refresh here. Yep, getting the muppets now!

Your mic is very 'poppy' MHL
  8:30am
Androu B.:

You should hear the unusual Muppet songs our beloved Station Manager plays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31am
MHLee:

I wonder if it's defaulted to the wrong input for some reason
Avatar 8:33am
worldsworstrecords:

Maybe, or the wrong sample rate? I had a similar problem and we found that I was broadcasting at 48000 Hz, rather than 44100
  8:33am
Androu B.:

Confirming what others are saying, MHLee. The problem must be somewhere on your end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34am
MHLee:

Oh yeah it's at 48,000 Hz it appears. I'll have to reconnect when the next set comes around
Avatar 8:35am
worldsworstrecords:

Hopefully that will solve it :-)

David (in London):

Greetings Mr Lee and all assembled rolling groovers.
  8:38am
Androu B.:

You know, I'm surprised Tiny Tim isn't an even bigger celebrity today considering the prevelance of ukelele (and "banjolele"(?)) in today's "popular" music.
  8:39am
Androu B.:

Greets, David (In London)!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41am
Jan Turkenburg:

MHLee, that might also explain why I had to refresh my player a while ago.

Wonderful stuff so far. I wish my alarms had gone off as planned. And wish I had some bananas.

Androu B.:

@MHLee

Any chance we'll hear any Raymond Scott numbers in upcoming shows?
Avatar 8:48am
worldsworstrecords:

We're just getting the stream now (I think)
  8:48am
Androu B.:

Don't think I'm on the right stream. First hearing disco, now loud rock music.

Ok... refresh your pop up again... he's back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50am
Jan Turkenburg:

I had to refresh again to hear you. your voice still sounding chopped up
  8:51am
Androu B.:

Would it be too much to ask of our beloved Station Manager if he could get a competent IT techie to fix the streams?
Avatar 8:51am
worldsworstrecords:

hell My Rag Time gal
  8:52am
Androu B.:

Maybe even get Mark Hurst to look into the problem and recommend someone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52am
MHLee:

It's an issue on my end. My current out play won't let me it set at lower than 48,000 hurts
Avatar 8:53am
worldsworstrecords:

I love CHLOE
  8:54am
Androu B.:

OK now. Stream is back.
Avatar 8:55am
Mr Fab:

Amazing how faithful this is to the Spike Jones version. I think some former Bonzos played with Bob Kerr?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56am
MHLee:

I'm just not going to back announce my last few songs. Do some test tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57am
MHLee:

I think a song got skipped thanks to some software issues. May just have to prerecord in the future. Easy enough.

Durn. Just woke up. Should have put it in my calendar. Well, welcome to the streamer side of Sheena's.

Indeed, what Darryl said. Thanks very much, I can tell this will be a fantastic show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01am
Jan Turkenburg:

Yes, Don't worry MHLee. Make it easy for yourself.
Just prerecord untill you've found a solution, or keep prerecording. It is what sounds that counts. I really loved your musical choises. Looking forward to next week!
