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.

Listener comments!

  9:06am trouble:

gooooood good day!
  9:07am vexed:

good morning day trouble :)
  9:08am pierre:

Whoa Red !
  9:08am Richard from Venezuela:

Good morning Trouble.
  9:08am hamburger / london:

woa - RED!
  9:09am Joe:

Hey ya
  9:09am pierre:

Bonjour Trouble, je suis troublé
  9:10am vexed:

song lyrics... think the Mabuses maybe? "...and the ghost sits in the kitchen..."
  9:10am annie:

wow, red.....
  9:11am jaypee:

Holy shit, Plasticman? Haven't heard this since my rave years, thank youi!!
  9:12am trouble:

bonjour pierre. bonojour all, the red is it too much? est ce que le rouge le problem?
  9:15am dave in vermont:

spring is slow coming to vermont-35 on my way to work-but i wore spring clothes to help move things along and because i amgetting impatient
  9:15am pierre:

non aucuns problèmes de mon coté,
you do whatever you want with the playlist, i'll be the last person to complain.
When i said "troublé" it was to make a joke with the meaning of trouble in english as "troublé" means blurry. I quite like the red actually, it goes well with my coffee. : )
  9:17am yayson:

well the red serves at least to brighten part of this grey landscape of today.
  9:17am yayson:

that along with the happy music, of course
  9:21am vexed:

love the graphic ... its amazing
  9:21am pierre:

i like the name of that track
  9:25am Jennique:

My mom used to tell me when I was a kid, "Go red up your room!" meaning go clean your room. I like that you followed my mom's advice.
  9:28am trouble:

the artist today is ellie curtis from london. go to her web site for more glorious images...elliecurtis.com
love the red up your room story jennique, fab! was your mom a soviet polit bureau head?
  9:29am KevinWho:

it's a Pennsylvania Dutch idiom
  9:30am trouble:

pierre i did not know that trouble was blurry, i love it!. sorry about no accents i can't find them on this pc thing
  9:30am Jennique:

KevinWho - you are correct! My mom is from Pittsburgh, PA. It's one of those Pittsburgh-ese sayings that I have absorbed into my vocabulary.
  9:38am Josh:

Mvt is an abbreviation for 'movement' darling. I.e. 'first movement'.
  9:38am pierre:

@ trouble : well i've researched, and actually it a kind of mixed definition between shady and blurry, its more used to speak of shady waters for example. Anyway in french as in englsih, that's a cool name.
  9:41am pierre:

btw dear fmu listeners, would you know good names or play on words with the terms "wool" or "knit" or "knitting" > just asking because i've to find ideas to give a friend who's trying to sell wool, and i've noticed how much fmu listeners were good with this kind of exercice. : )
  9:42am Wool you be mine:

  9:44am trouble:

thank you josh! all corrections are so very helpful when followed by an endearment...
  9:46am pierre:

and right there a good one !
thanks "wool you be mine"
  9:47am Bad Ronald:

Ewe are most welcome!
  9:48am trouble:

pierre, i did not know you spoke the international language of wool! fantastique! i am a knitter, where can i see this fab (french?) wool?
  9:51am S M O K E S the C A T:


(not in the US though, but OK in europe as they are no more over here)
  9:52am pierre:

well i'm learning, but my relatives are way more into it, they are trying to teach me. I don't know if you're familiar with the website www.ravelry.com, they will soon post some work they've been doing.
  9:53am Adrian in London:

Sayonara Mrs Troubleman. Nod of the head to all.
  9:54am S M O K E S the C A T:

tis good in french too - 'valeurs de laines'
  9:55am trouble:

yes i am on ravelry, what name should i look up? i love that site, fab
  9:56am trouble:

good morning adrian! thanks for the hong kong in the 60's connection. will play some this morning...
  9:58am moose:

woolworth's is gone here too
  10:02am Adrian in London:

My pleasure.
  10:03am don:

top of the morning to you, madame troublefly.
  10:06am pierre:

wool worth is good indeed
@ trouble : i think its noemieg, and you can speak to her, she was born in NYC, i'm triying to make her a wfmu fan, she already pledged ! She soon will post some nice shawls she made recently. What's your name on ravelry, i'd love to see some of your productions.
  10:12am bennett4senate:

ack, thx for the reminder, I want to see that Kalman show... gotta see George Condo too at the New Museum before that comes down.
  10:13am Laura L:

You're welcome--it was great fun--and Maira's show at the Jewish Museum is not to be missed.
  10:19am don:

are you referring to maira, bennett? or is there a tibor show happening as well?
  10:20am listener mark:

good morning trouble
good morning dj ice pack
good morning everyone
  10:21am Carmichael:

And a Huckleberry Houuuuuuund Dog "Howdy" to everyone!
  10:22am jesse:

mornin Trouble,
just tuning in now, can you tell me who did the drawing on the playlist?
  10:22am trouble:

good morning don. i loved your video, did i neglect to write you back? thanks for hipping me.
pierre my ravelry sight is totally empty at moment since i haven't loaded any pics in yet, but i have a little break from school this next week and that is one of the goals to get done: will keep you informed>
  10:26am dc pat fc:

Hi troubs, nice horse!
  10:26am Carmichael:

Trouble, I could listen to Northern Soul all day and night!
  10:26am Cecile:

trouble: Conchords/Brazilian heads up. Jemaine is in the cartoon movie Rio (kind of cliche but gorgeous and Sergio Mendes is music director) as an evil cockatoo and wrote a great song!


If you get the song it from iTunes, you get an extra two verses and maniacal laughing.

later, taters.
  10:27am Cecile:

Isn't Northern Soul American soul that Brits like? LOLOLOLOL!

I could too myself, Carm.
  10:28am pierre:

i could to Carmichael

Thanks trouble, i've send you my adress. Looking forward to see…
  10:28am βrian:

Wow. Red sorghum!
  10:29am Cecile:

And cute samba-ing birds here:
  10:29am Shana:

Ooh, my jam!
  10:31am Parq:

This Altamont remix is fun and chilling at the same time.
  10:31am john-ess:

Altamont is BANGIN'!
  10:31am Carmichael:

I have a buttload of Northern Soul comps that I play endlessly. Along with my Bubble Gum collections. So awful, it's wonderful.
  10:33am dc pat fc:

  10:34am listener mark:

detecting a dj ice pack influence on the show this morning
  10:36am pierre:

aaaah toys and techniques …
  10:39am Adrian in London:

The HK60s album is actually called My Fantoms (correct spelling) and can be bought for less than the cost of a decent cocktail from http://hongkonginthe60s.bandcamp.com/ Sounds great on this sunny London day.
  10:40am don:

good sell, adrian
  10:41am Adrian in London:

Well, you know, it's nice to help nice people…
  10:42am βrian:

Les mouettes. I knew a mouette once.
  10:43am don:

absolutely! they deserve it. buying it now.
  10:43am dc pat fc:

I saw a 2 trees full of cormorants on the way to work. Pretty cool birds, their bodies go under water when they float...
  10:45am dale:

morning trouble. i think i have some tom swift books, tom swift and the electric rifle, tom swift and his airship etc.
  10:45am βrian:

Trouble, ya gotta move to Madison. Chickens galore.
  10:46am dc pat fc:

waaaaiiit a minute, chicken poop bad for compost??
  10:47am john-ess:


"When it comes to manures, there is none more desired for the vegetable garden than chicken manure."
  10:47am aaron in chicago:

whoa, this is show #40000!
  10:47am pierre:

ediiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiith !

Ah Paris is sunny today, i'm opening my window for everybody to enjoy this !
  10:49am aaron in chicago:

pierre appears to live within my stereotypical fantasy image of france
  10:50am dc pat fc:

I was gonna say, I think we're talking about scale here. I'm expanding my composting operation but it's still small beans and maybe too small to handle chick poop. But generally, poop = good.
  10:50am Cecile:

I picture Remy the Rat sunning himself on a rooftop with a glass of wine and a picnic basket nearby.
  10:51am pierre:

@ aaron : you are right, and i'm throwing baguettes bread at everybody at the same time ! : )
  10:51am aaron in chicago:

are you wearing a black and white striped shirt right now? be honest.
  10:54am βrian:

Pierre, please make mine a pain de seigle aux rasins.
  10:54am glenn:

wow. we DO love the vernons girls.
  10:54am trouble:

yes i am talking scale. if they continue to make poop, darn them and their pooping, it will totally overload my small city compost.
  10:55am Adrian in London:

And are you wearing a Paris 2012 t-shirt too, Pierre? I really want one of those, ha ha.
  10:59am aaron in chicago:

this set is going everywhere. I like it!
  10:59am pierre:

@ aaron : i'm honestly wearing a dark blue light blue stripped t shirt !
@ Brian : i'd love to, but you have to wait for the dough to rest for a night.
its almost 5pm here. Time to grab something to drink.
@ adrian : i wasn't for the olympic in paris; so i guess i'll never wear a paris sport event shirt, sorry. But having an ironical t shirt would be cool, i'll try to find one.
  11:00am dc pat fc:

troub: got it, that makes sense cuz, yeah, the poop doesn't stop.
  11:01am Bev:

Who did the horse and rider illustration on your playlist site? Very nice.
  11:02am Immodium:

Wanna bet?
  11:02am jesse:

Hi Trouble, can you spill the beans on the horse drawing?
  11:03am trouble:

the horse is by ellie curtis. i mentioned her earlier and her web site is early in comments page
  11:03am Adrian in London:

@Pierre Having worked out how much we're going to have to pay to see two cycling events in the Velodrome in 2012 you're probably better off without the Olympics.
  11:05am jesse:

thanks for the remention!
  11:06am pierre:

yeah, plus all the pollution generated by papers, food, vehicules, biuldings… for sport, i really think londoners will have a difficult time.
  11:07am aaron in chicago:

chicago dodged a bullet for 2016. we had a pretty cool logo whipped up, though.
  11:07am Adrian in London:

Yeah, but London doesn't really work anyway. We'll laugh and complain in equal measure and feel stroppy but then we'll bump into Karolina Kluft on the tube and everything will be alright.
  11:07am Cecile:

I think Paris will see a huge influx of second-hand tourism.
  11:08am glenn:

apparently, one of the vernons girls is kim wilde's mom.
  11:11am pierre:

yeah true cecile, and the waiters at the café will scare them with their rudeness… MMouaHAHAHaha
  11:16am listener mark:

diego garcia sounds a bit like "The Dandy Warhols" or vice versa
  11:21am hamburger / london:

only event I would consider watching for 2012 is the woman's beach volleyball... or, or perhaps the gymnastics?
  11:26am listener mark:

(the "Now playing:" feed is bonkers)
  11:28am glenn:

or you could just wait until 2014 and watch the canadian hockey teams blow everybody away again.
  11:31am postmanpaul (":

hi trouble, very nice red indeed..... hi everyone. regarding the london olympics,
doesn't that logo suck?! it's a clumsy most awkward design that should have been acknowledge during initial brainstorming, and later, either dropped or sexed up, in my opinion. put simply, it hints of meat and two veg with winston churchill bulldog aromas. rant over. and no, i'm not miffed that i didn't get to do it!
  11:33am listener mark:

What weighs six tons and wears glass slippers?
Cinder-elephant !
  11:35am hamburger / london:

I don't actually mind the logo :)

It could have been some lame city silohouette is all
  11:35am dc pat fc:

hamburger: same here....and soccertenniscycling....but that's IT.
  11:36am Billy Jam:

good music! thank-U Trouble
  11:37am dc pat fc:

PPP: whoa, that does suck. Is that the winner of the children's design contest? Or the 80's design contest?
  11:41am Carmichael:

Keep 'em comin', Trub!
  11:43am postmanpaul (":

sprinters at the starting blocks outside buckingham palace is not the solution, H / L!
yeah dc pat fc, what went wrong? quite frankly it's put me off the olympics, period! it is so embarrassing.
  11:44am pierre:

does dj Icepack speaks french as well as Trouble ?
  11:44am hamburger / london:

I do agree it's gonna be difficult to watch the opening ceremony :)
  11:45am trouble:

hey billy jam, cheerio!
  11:46am aaron in chicago:

wikipedia sez that logo cost £400,000. that's £100,000 per spiky blob
  11:47am Adrian in London:

I recall that the logo is meant to be 'youthful' and 'edgy'. I've sort of got used to it now, and don't feel physically ill whenever I see it.
  11:47am Handsome Harry:

Shades of Amanda. God I wish that my brain did not work this way.
  11:47am aaron in chicago:

it certainly has a lot of edges
  11:51am dc pat fc:

I'll be paying more attention to the European Cup anyway...
  11:51am postmanpaul (":

@ Handsome Harry you could wean yourself off her with yoko ono, to be taken 4 times a day! no more amanda slander!
  11:56am Jennique:

Had to step out for a morning meeting, just popping back in to say hi to DJ Icepack and will go back and listen on the archived playlist.
  11:56am Handsome Harry:

I will both heed that advice and pray for a miracle.
  11:56am Webhamster Henry:

DJ Icepack, we need you - my daughter hit her head and is cooling it with a bag of frozen peas.
  11:59am Kev in Newark:

Thanks for the shout out from the crew at St. V art class. Yes we did clean our brushes!
  12:00pm βrian:

That logo is much better if rendered in bitonal black and white. But as a logo? Nah.
