Listener comments!

  9:04am Parq:

Here it is, Doug; the show you've waited your whole life to do. Right now, I'm imagining a stadium full of 'Bama supporters dancing and reveling to "Juju". And your listeners are partying right along with them. Have a blast today, hombre!
  9:05am Listener James from Westwood:

I have been looking forward to this episode of GTDS for eight years. Go get 'em, Doug!
  9:07am JCityJensen:

AWESOMENESS has returned to America!
  9:08am Doug:

Ohmigod, Parq, did you hit it on the head. Big O tribute coming up at about 10:30.
  9:08am sahak:

morning folks
  9:09am ?:

I'm gonna tear the knob of the radio at 10:30!
  9:11am Hugo:

Yes, you could! Congrats from the old (European) world!
  9:12am Bad Ronald:

I gonna tear up the rug at 10:30!!!
  9:13am annie:

we're all walking around with reverberating contact highs!! woohoo!!
  9:14am fishmonkeystew:

I am a huge supporter of O, but I can't help but have a slight sense of apprehension that I'm guessing won't go away until we actually see some change. Is that wrong?
  9:16am Bad Ronald:

FMS - No we must proceed with trepidation.
  9:17am fishmonkeystew:

It's sort of an attitude of "OK, here's your chance. Now prove yourself."
  9:18am annie:

agreed, fish
  9:19am Bad Ronald:

It's the first step in the right (left?) direction which will not be a short walk...
  9:20am GP:

Yeahawwww!! from Texas
  9:23am El Thatchmo...:

Yo Mama? Try JoeBama!
  9:25am dc pat:

the problem is that for the next 4 years, they're just going to be trying to fix all the crap that the Republicreep's broke
  9:27am annie:

wasn't there a betty boop cartoon modeled after the snow white story, and they used st james infirmary for the images.. was it my childhood mind that remembers the creepiness? was it real? dancing skellingtons.. etc. what a trip all these images evoke
  9:29am dc pat:

Annie: You could be right--most of the Betty Boops were surreal as hell. I remember Cinderella but not Snow White. There was one starring Cab Calloway that had a lot of skeletons, etc.
  9:30am annie:

oh good my memory is correct!!! i had surgeries when i was 7 and the skeletons danced in my dreams at that time.. i loved that cartoon..
  9:31am dc pat:

Doug: I remember you calling for Obama as key note speaker. Nice work! We owe this all to Doug Schulkind!
  9:31am bzul:

I'm with you fms. Eager to cast the vote and fully pleased at the outcome, but the gravity, polarity and grind aren't in a state that awaits magic reorientation. Fights over turf and public perceptions will stay familiar. Experienced hands will by necessity have to be given a role in the admin., and standard risks and practices will suppress the shift potential. But we hope and we hope. (Here endeth the chin stroke.)
  9:33am dc pat:

Max Fleischer was a genius.
  9:34am annie:

that was when cartoons were designed for adults.. thank god i was born in 1953.. what an educatio i got!!
  9:35am fishmonkeystew:

Yes, I finally feel like there is a ray of hope. What amazes me is that despite the jubilation that the world outside the U.S. is showing, there are still large amounts of angry naysayers here in our own country. Try sifting through some of the various forums out there (Fark for example) and you get this sense of an ugly underbelly.
  9:36am dc pat:

They're starting to get back to the idea that cartoons can simultaneously enjoyed by kids and grown ups but they have a long way to go to match those old ones.
  9:37am paulthepostman:

Salutations one and all, just back from walking the streets for money...
  9:37am annie:

yeah i am witnessing it in the fundamentalist-leaning homesteading forums... they are all ready for the end of times..
  9:37am bzul:

May a new day slap the dark underbelly to warm pinkness.
  9:39am bzul:

Jessie Mae pinched my cheeks pink and bent up a grin.
  9:41am paulthepostman:

...kettle's on, Rosie Lee cum'n up, ah life's simple pleasures.
  9:41am annie:

amazing ain't it paul??
  9:44am PMD:

Here's something someone just sent me. Sorry so long:

One sunny day in 2009 an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue, where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the U.S. Marine standing guard and said, 'I would like to go in and meet with President Bush.'

The Marine looked at the man and said, 'Sir, Mr. Bush is no longer president and no longer resides here.'

The old man said, 'Okay' and walked away.

The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, 'I would like to go in and meet with President Bush.'

The Marine again told the man, 'Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Bush is no longer president and no longer resides here.'

The man thanked him and, again, just walked away.

The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same U. S. Marine, saying 'I would like to go in and meet with President Bush.'

The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, 'Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Bush. I've told you already that Mr. Bush is no longer the president and no longer resides here. Don't you understand?'

The old man looked at the Marine and said,
'Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it.'

The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, 'See you tomorrow.'
  9:45am mike cooper:

Think ALOHA - like OBAMA - that HAWAIIAN education - GOODMORNING
from ITALY
  9:46am paulthepostman:

what's that annie? Life's simple pleasures or a nice cuppa?
  9:46am annie:

both, i guess... :)
  9:51am Bob:

Bill Evans' "Conversations with Myself," which consists of duets with him in both channels, is pretty cool. No rhythm section.
  9:52am paulthepostman:

annie, forgive my punctuation ignorance, but what does :) mean?
  9:53am annie:

i'm sideways smiling at you..
  9:53am Bad Ronald:

  9:55am paulthepostman:

  9:56am Bad Ronald:

\m/ '_' \m/
  9:57am paulthepostman:

you wearing earings today BR?
  9:59am Bad Ronald:

Nah those are heavy metal horns!
  10:01am paulthepostman:

they suit you sir!
  10:01am Bad Ronald:

And this is for GWB:

mIm '_' mIm
  10:05am GP:

Wonderful set here Doug. This makes being at work almost bearable.
  10:10am dc pat:

GOD I love Anthony Braxton!
  10:11am Hugo:

Ah, Braxton. It only takes two seconds (or thereabouts). Instant karma!
  10:12am Cecile:

Aw, I gotta miss most of this show, but right on, Doug!
  10:15am Cecile:

Doug, and crew, are you familiar with a group called Nomo? I discovered them through Pandora and they are a bunch of Ann Arborites that combine some German-style electronica with Afro-jazz and sound damn good doing it.
  10:16am Doug:

"I love Anthony Braxton!" -- God
  10:17am dj miner:

great show for an amazing week, thx doug! did anyone see braxton w/ karl berger and the CMS archive project benefit at symphony space? sadly, i missed it.
  10:19am dc pat:

  10:21am Louisville Dan:

Yes-I am guilty of not ever hearing this Stan Getz before!
  10:21am Matt:

DId anyone pick up the Mosaic Braxton box?
  10:27am ~L:

Just a few thoughts: The GOP powers that be have to complain about SP's clothes spending and lack of decorum, because if they complain that she was unqualified and unprepared they would be admitting fault since they choose her to represent their party. I have no pity for the woman, and think she is dangerous as a vocal fundamentalist and federalist. She proved herself with her disregard and abuse of the little power they gave her. The GOP is just trying to save face by placing the blame on her. They choose her, she accepted. They are feeling shame as they should be. Her "You betcha'," comes with reflux.
  10:27am Paul Sherratt:

Well this is the first time I've listened to wfmu when the lights were on ( started listening late 2001 )

Now can anyone help with this ? Doug played Carlos Cezar e Os Demonios da Garoa during the October 17th show - does anyone know anything at all about Carlos Cezar ? .. The BBC would like to know
  10:29am dc pat:

yeah, I'm with ~L, not feeling to sorry for Palin or GOP right now.
  10:30am dc pat:

  10:31am Cecile:

I love Ptah, but it always makes me want to spit for some reason. ;)
  10:32am annie:

and it was some of the most immature behavior i've seen ever.....
  10:32am annie:

cecile-you mean ptah brown?
  10:33am Cecile:

Doug, thank you for sharing this with me.

Are you guys familiar with Randy Weston's sdtk for "Sweet Love Bitter?"
  10:33am jon:

Micky One is truly an amazing film!!!!
  10:33am Cecile:

No, Ptah, the El Daoud
  10:33am stingy d:

i want bagels
  10:33am jon:

Try to see it if you can!
  10:34am GP:

That Stan Getz ended WAY too soon..I was just getting in to that.
  10:34am Cecile:

OH. Annie, I get it.
  10:34am bzul:

re: "Her "You betcha'," comes with reflux."

Too cruel to call it ass-head reflux?
  10:35am annie:

ptah brown, great blues singer located in p-town.. she is amazing
  10:35am jon:

beautifully edited, acting is top notch, includes a segment of an artist who creates a "machine" that destroys itself...
  10:37am Cecile:

I thought you meant Pieta Brown. der.
  10:38am GP:

Ah...Mighty about ...NO.
  10:38am annie:

so now we've exchanged names.. way cool i'll check out pieta... thanks..
  10:42am stingy d:

lets make arecord!!!!!
  10:45am paulthepostman:

ptah ptah for now!
  10:46am HotRod:

It's a BLACK out! Give her power!
  10:47am Lore:

Carrie Robinson brings more power:
  10:47am Cecile:

  10:48am HotRod:

Max Roach's "It's Time"??? FUCKIN' PERFECT!
  10:48am fishmonkeystew:

Awwwww, yeah. Max.
  10:52am dc pat:

  10:54am HotRod:

  10:55am beet so:

so many hopes, so many hopes
  10:57am annie:

how perfect!! nectar of the gods and goddesses
  10:58am Cecile:

thank you for the great music, I must split.

I am so proud of this moment in history. Good to be alive!
  10:59am annie:

hard to leave, isn't it?
  11:02am annie:

when i first heard this, i was nonplussed... just anothe rspeech by a politician.. now i am close to tears...
  11:03am El Thatchmo...:

Are we the brotherman or the otherman?!? The answer is self evident.
  11:05am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  11:07am Peter:

when i met him in a coffeeshop in downtown concord in march 07 i knew instantly. i felt like id just met Abe Lincoln.
  11:09am fishmonkeystew:

If there is an ounce of sincerity in this man, there may very well be a light at the end of this long tunnel. He is the type of person that I always thought that the forefathers of this country were.
  11:10am annie:

it is my hope of hopes you are right
  11:15am stingy d:

i come from the othere side / i see the tunnel at the end of the light
  11:17am Sean Daily:

Yeah, he delivers a good speech. Now let's see him deliver on some of that.
  11:17am Marseille the guy with bread under his arm:

  11:18am ttttttt:

Great selections, Doug.
  11:18am ?:
  11:19am Eric:

Doug -- I remember emailing you after a certain election four years ago.

Thanks to all the good people who made today's HAPPY SHOW possible.

(And now let's keep Obama's feet to the fire to deliver on some of what he promises.)
  11:22am Kay:

While others are rushing out to buy a Tuesday late edition or Wednesday copy of the New York Times, Chicago Tribune et al., your last set is the best time capsule of a moment when we all witnessed history.
  11:22am beet so:

eric you het the nail on the head...lets see to the sentiment of the last comment beyond parenthetical
  11:25am Toby:

Thanks for a really moving few hours.
  11:28am Parq:

Let's keep something else in mind; if Obama does succeed in delivering on some of his promises, the temptation of complacancy must be shunned. Surely, if the economy turns around, the pundits will say that it was thanks to stuff Bush did before he left office, and Mr. and Mrs. Walmart will go back to worrying about flag-burning and the 10 Commandments in courthouses. The rest of us have to remember that there will always be important work, real work, still to be done.
  11:28am Doug:

Before I forgot to say it at the end of the show: I love you all.
  11:29am annie:

right on parq... and doug, this show was stunningly beautiful
  11:34am Brandon:

what can I say....this rules...we rule. we all do. the all, meaning, everyone who wasn't on the wrong side of my parents.
  11:34am Ike:

Did anybody else experience a connection problem for a few minutes there? Other net radio stations worked OK for me but FMU's whole site went down, at least on my end.
  11:39am GP:

Ike, I got it too....crashed Firefox as well....everything is now back working fine.
  11:41am Ted from Baltimore:

Love you back, Doug.
Feels so great to be listening to the show this morning and reading the comments. But this is just the beginning of the beginning.
I'm thinking now of a quote I read somewhere: "Work as though we were living in the first days of a better nation."
  11:43am Parq:

Ike, I had a problem, but I assumed that it was on my end, as our internet connex (which is straight outa 1998 to begin with) is running unusually slowly today. It resolved itself quickly. Your post is the first indication I've had that the problem was on FMU's end.
  11:44am fishmonkeystew:

It seems to me that complacency, greed and intolerance are probably three of the largest problems that this country is facing. A true recipe for a failure.

Doug, thanks for yet another killer show.
  11:45am Ken From Hyde Park:

I haven't had connection problems today. Coming in loud, clear and wonderful.
  11:47am ~N:

Nice post, ~L.
  11:49am Doug:

You mean Hyde "coolest place on the planet" Park, dontcha?! My wife's old neighborhood. Later today, the Obamas will be going to Parent-Teacher conferences at their daughters' school. Which just happens to be my wife's old high school.
  11:50am annie:

hey doug, they going to public school?
  11:52am Doug:

The Lab School at U. of Chicago.
  11:53am annie:

i'm glad he's keeping them out of dc
  11:54am Parq:

Hmm. I assumed he meant Hyde Park NY.
  11:55am annie:

no offense pat, we moved away when my son got to school age.. just couldn't handle the schools in the district.
  11:56am Ken From Hyde Park:

Yep...Hyde Park, NY. We're across the street from Vanderbilt Mansion and up the road from FDR's home. Not sure how cool it ranks. Cool enough to be in range of the 90.1 signal, anyway.
  11:57am Doug:

Annie, I misunderstood. The Lab School is where they are NOW. Not sure where they're headed.
  11:58am dlene:

annie, the obama children will be going to school in dc once their dad takes office - parents are trying to pick a school right now. what did you not like about the schools in dc?
  11:58am annie:

we shall see, sidwell friends school is one of the best schools in the dc area. quaker and very complete
  11:59am annie:

pat, i was not in the position to get him into sidwell,. just hated the thought of public schools with the drugs
  12:00pm annie..:

and the kensington district wouldn't let me put him near my babysittier..
  12:01pm fishmonkeystew:

Hear ya next Friday, Doug! Thanks!
  12:01pm dlene:

they don't do drugs at private schools? i beg to differ!
  12:03pm annie:

well, it was a tough choice. this was 25 years ago too..
  12:03pm bzul:

Cover scan of album where...?
  12:43pm mike tp:

was wildly blowing my car horn at 5 am on my way to the tp. the bar is raised ball in our court lets get down to specifics not proclamations. lets see some progressives on obamas team.a great time to be an american. book: 1000 recordings to hear before you die by tom moon a listeners life list. great weekend doug and to all the very present listenership.
  3:48pm Rob:

Just starting out today's time-shifted listen and imagine my surprise to hear "St. James Ave" right at the top! Thanks for the shout-out. And, yes, "obsession" is a very fair characterization. Enjoying the show as always... (just a few hours late, as always.)
  6:55pm Richard D:

Thanks for playing the blues and R&B tracks!
  4:16am Richard D:

Obama restores faith in our country. Now we can move forward and past the bigotry of the last 8 years.
