A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

  9:17am stu:

Hi Trouble & all the Troubled souls out there in Radio Land !

Magnolias, forythias, daffodils, maple blossoms, fruit tree blossums. The Jersey Burbs are springing back to life after three months of absolute hell (to me anyway). Hey trouble would you happen to have Clifford Brown's "Joy Spring" avaialble?
  9:50am Patrick:

Good morning trouble!
  9:52am glenn:

  9:56am trouble:

you are welcome dc pat!
  10:03am Patrick:

We are doing good. Things are kinda moving at the speed of sound for me.
  10:05am trouble:

good to hear patrick! speed of sound is a bit overwhelming i imagine, but all good...
  10:09am Robbie:

Where is Kristie McNichols?
  10:11am bennett4senate:

trubs, you got an album or label for that Wee track? wanna know more :)
  10:11am Robbie:

So Keith Partridge was the first t be fired. Trump is what the band needed instead of Kincaid.
  10:13am listener mark:

bon jour everyone
nice jazzy mind journey today
thank you
  10:15am Robbie:

Is all this music influenced by your secondary impression of Jose Gonzalez and what aspects of his music appealed to your friend? Cool.
  10:16am don:

tuesday sounding beautifully, trouble
  10:16am trouble:

b4s! sorry that set was mostly froma mix i made, with a lack of space for titles: you can fly on my aeroplane on numero group. we have it here...
  10:28am dc pat:

Myra is really cool. We probably have all her books. Her paintings look so effortless.
  10:31am ~L:

Maybe Maira Kalman will read from her book "Chicken Soup, Boots"!!!
  10:35am dc pat:

I mean Maira..
  10:37am βrian:

Clear skies in Madison. A good day to for an election. (Turnout looks to be heavy.)
  10:37am listener mark:

Maira Kalman thinks Abraham Lincoln would have been the most incredible boyfriend. Interview on "The Colbert Report."
  10:42am trouble:

i agree listener mark! maira makes a compelling argument...i saw that colbert when it originally aired. he must love her, with all the fab pics he showed! and he was so kind not fake slimy at all
  10:44am ~L:

Maira has a great piece on All things considered on NPR that aired last November. You can listen to it on the NPR site, for ten minutes, but then you have to turn WFMU back on... of course.
  10:45am glenn:

she'd have to fight sarah vowell for him.
  10:46am Amy:

Great set!
  10:51am trouble:

thanks amy
  10:56am BSI:

missed don cherry!
curses & stuff!
  11:05am listener mark:

@BSI -- archives !
the Roland Young - "Airlessly" was great, listen to that !
  11:06am Andy in Nova Scotia:

That sounded like some kind of Goatsucker, you know, birds related to whip-poor-will... also known as Nightjars...
  11:07am βrian:

"Dusky nightjar." Now there's a term of endearment!
  11:08am slugluv1313:

oooooooooo those HUMMINGBIRDS!!!!!!! so CUTE!!!!!
  11:09am Andy in Nova Scotia:

and on the other side of the bird size spectrum, see the eagles and eaglets in Norfolk, Va... http://www.wvec.com/marketplace/microsite-content/eagle-cam.html
  11:10am BSI:

wait for it................... antioxidants!
  11:10am m in nyc:

reminds me of "put a bird on it!" in portlandia
  11:13am Priscilla:

Eagle nest is swaying -- whoa I'm getting seasick!
  11:13am m in nyc:

sorry, forgot URL - here's "put a bird on it" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XM3vWJmpfo
  11:15am Robert:

Did your show use to come on here a decade ago on Sat. mornings? Or was that another lady who used to use nature sounds as a bed?
  11:17am pierre:

Bonjour bonjour LISTENERS !
  11:19am Adrian in London:

trouble et Jennique: Rob Dean, the guitarist from the band Japan, is now a respected ornithologist in ... Costa Rica. 

I do have a photo of me, aged eight, dressed up as a Womble for a fancy dress party. And no, I'm not going to post it.
  11:19am trouble:

bonjour pierre!
  11:21am trouble:

adrian, the womble thing is lost on the american audience i fear. i found it via you tube and wish it WAS part of my childhood. Now how about that photo? pretty please?
  11:24am dc pat:

thanks m, Fred Armisen is hilarious.
  11:25am Parq:

No Wombles in the US? Heck, even I remember "Remember You're a Womble!"
  11:26am pierre:

oh PORTLANDIA, just discovered it few weeks ago, its really funny et relaxing. In the meantime a difficult serie to share with french friends, but some of the jokes are international.
  11:29am trouble:

really? was it on TV?
  11:30am Lewis:

Indeed Brian (sorry about the "B") the weather is fair here by the Lakes and voting is underway!

cheers to all of you sharing the tunes out there in radio land!
  11:32am dc pat:

this lykke li tune rules. man, amazing how such a simple tune can blow you away.
  11:35am Parq:

Well, you got me. Wikipedia has nothing about it having run in the US, and yet I remember it being around. Coulda sworn it had at least a breif US run, but honestly, I can't say for sure.
  11:36am slugluv1313:

i remember the WOMBLES!!!!
  11:36am listener mark:

Thank you trouble. The music is great this morning, and the sun is rising.
  11:36am trouble:

perhaps it ran briefly on public tv parq. i suppose this is the reason the republicans fear NPR and public TV: the wombles. o the humanity!
  11:38am slugluv1313:

i used to hear THE WOMBLES hit songs on Scott Muni's "Things From England" show, i think Friday afternoons on WNEW-FM in NYC -- and also have vague recollections of seeing film/video clips of the songs on TV . . .
  11:41am dc pat:

I thought I saw the Wombles when I was little too...maybe I saw it later though
  11:42am Parq:

Miss T, let's all go to a Tea Party rally dressed as Wombles, and see if we can send them into a panic.
  11:42am john:

Woops. I thought that was Dennis DeYoung, of the legendary suburban Chicago band, Styx.
  11:44am dc pat:

yeah man, all that Pepsi and Kool-Aid probably fogged my memory..
  11:48am don:

wow yes
  11:49am pierre:

aaaaah nuages… fortunately, nuages are not on Paris, what about the u.s. ?
  11:49am Parq:

I was in college in the 70s! Wait, I guess that knda makes your point ...
  11:50am Slim:

lived in Edinburgh as a kid from 88'–91' – they were showing PLENTY of Wombles re-runs at that time. Seem to remember one or two wombles-based homework assignments...
  11:51am trouble:

pas des nuages ici pierre.
  11:51am dc pat:

I know a French guy that said he saw Django's grandson play at the French embassy here in dc. Couldn't get a decent idea whether he was good or not..
  11:53am trouble:

wombles based homework: that is living!
  11:55am βrian:

@Pierre. Pas de nuages au middlewest, non plus. Mais demain nous aurons un ciel bas.
  11:58am pierre:

i heard Django's grandson at Marciac Jazz Festival. It was good, also nothing really breathtacking, the emotions was here for sure.

@ Brain : "un ciel bas dans le middlewest", should be nice to look at while listening to fmu. Also sounds like a Clint Eastwood movie > but if it was made in french
  11:59am pierre:

@ Brian (sorry for the spelling)
  12:00pm βrian:

Pas de quoi. Happens all the time.
  12:00pm Handsome Harry:

I work with a lot of Long Islanders. Less than a second after Trouble announced "Yo!," there was an actual "YO!" exclamation in my office. It was a beautiful thing.
