Listener comments!

  8:30am Parq:

DrumSum, are you there? Who was doing the Randy-Newmanish track playing at about 8:25-29 EDT?
  8:33am Drummer Some:

I think you were hearing Eugene Chadbourne & Jimmy Carl Black - Buggy Boogie Woogie. Right after that was Allen Ginsberg.
  8:34am Parq:

I think the Ginsberg track was the one I was asking about. Thankee. See you in 25 mins.
  8:37am Drummer Some:

'Twas Allen Ginsberg's "Sickness Blues" then.
  8:41am texas scott:

bring on the pye-anny blues!

Howdy Pittsburgh.And friends.
  8:45am Drummer Some:

Buenos días, Scott del Tejas!
  8:46am annie:

hail, hail, the gang's all here!
  8:49am Drummer Some:

Morning Annie! Make sure your safety goggles are secure before I open the cage.
  8:55am monica:

morning doug, [arq, annie and t'scott! ready for the big shoo?
  8:57am Brian in UK:

Holy smokin' beagles, it's hotter 'un a Mormons candidacy for the big job here.
Afternoon all. Still looking for my missing Kool & the Gang 'bums.
  8:58am Drummer Some:

Hi Monica! Hi Brian! Hi Donner! Hi Blitzen!
  8:59am listener james from westwood:

someday that lds cyborg mitt romney's gonna get his wish and become a real, live boy.
  8:59am Brian in UK:

Pardon me Miz Monica my best wishes to you and yours. (He genuflected obsequiously)
  9:00am ?:

morning doug and everyone
  9:00am annie:

starting out with a bang. hot damn!!
  9:02am ndbob:

hello doug and everyone!
  9:03am Paul Sherratt:

Hi (y)'all,
Missed the party ... is there any cake left or was it left out in the rain ?
  9:03am Drummer Some:

Good morning to you, ndbob. And great greetings to you, Listener J from W.
  9:04am jessie:

Hello from foggy and early San Francisco
  9:04am listener james from westwood:

but it took so long to bake it!
  9:04am Drummer Some:

Sherratt's here—hide the bourbon. (You KNOW how he gets.)
  9:05am listener james from westwood:

early day out there in san fran, but that fog can be beautiful, i'm told! gotta get out there someday....
  9:05am listener james from westwood:

and a heapin' helpin' of howdy to doug and all of y'all on this heartbreakingly gorgeous friday!
  9:07am Brian in UK:

Did not take long to get onto to drink or food!! Making pizzas later by the by.
  9:08am trish:

The pairing of late spring blue skies and fresh green leaves are fine with the sun, air and sounds. Plat du jour.
  9:08am Drummer Some:

Hello darling! (That one's directed to my dearest Jessie, cavorting at dawn on the left coast.)
  9:08am Paul Sherratt:

Sir Doug, it's the caffeine intake that causes the trouble !

UK Brian,

Some fine tunes you sent over for my recent anniversary - Thank You !
  9:09am ndbob:

A lovely summer day here in North Dakota.
  9:09am Drummer Some:

LJfW, did you just say "heartbreakingly gorgeous"? That's outstanding!

Hiya Trish.
  9:10am Lore:

Such a polite request from Mr. Thomas.
  9:11am Drummer Some:

Hey, no stealing from the collection plate—Lore's in the house!
  9:12am Brian in UK:

Paul.You are more than welcome, brother.
  9:12am listener james from westwood:

It's peak spring here. Allergy season over, cool wind, no humidity or clouds ... I'd bottle this day if I could and share it freely with the sad and lonely.
  9:13am still b/p:

He was working for Pianists With Attitude?
  9:13am listener james from westwood:

@Brian in UK: I'm pulling my canoe down to the shores of the Hudson and rowing over for some of that pizza! Any particular beer I should bring?
  9:14am Drummer Some:

Currently 51°F here in Pittsburgh and yes, it is heartbreakingly gorgeous. (In the back of my mind, I see the searing blue skies in NYC on the morning of Sept. 11.)
  9:15am ndbob:

I see that Dr. Kevorkian has just died.
  9:18am ndbob:

Ever hear his album "A Very Still Life"?
  9:19am Brian in UK:

Well LJfW I think it has to be something cooling in this weather. I am favouring Peroni right now but Leffe or some other Belgian brew would suffice.
Just to keep it international I'll be using Canadian flour. Ever'one welcome.
  9:20am Paul Sherratt:

>>I see that Dr. Kevorkian has just died

Have mercitron !
  9:21am listener james from westwood:

If my rowing arms are in tune, I can swing by Belgium first and grab a case.
@ndbob: Naturally or with an assist?
  9:22am Paul Sherratt:

My small beer has come to the UK from Mexico.
What size footprint would that be, I wonder ?
  9:23am ndbob:

naturally - kidney failure
  9:24am Jessibird in California:

Finally my timing is right! My cat helped, he woke me up. This is an excellent way to start my Friday.
  9:27am Drummer Some:

Remind me to slip your cat some extra num-nums, Jessbird.
  9:27am Jessibird:

Doug, I love human voices imitating instruments too. Wish I had that talent. I'd like to sound like a toy piano.
  9:29am listener james from westwood:

kit-ty num-num.
kit-ty num-num.
  9:33am Drummer Some:

Speaking of vocal imitations of instruments: I sat watching Youtube vids of human beatboxes with my daughter last night. Apparently she spent the last hour of school doing this with her music teacher yesterday. (This ain't your father's 5th grade!)
  9:34am still b/p:

Michelle Obama should be encouraging kids everywhere to spend an hour a day at THAT!
  9:36am listener james from westwood:

Oh, man, beatboxing would've beaten the tar out of my 5th-grade music class. for the last quarter we incessantly practiced "i can't smile without you" for the graduation presentation. child abuse.
  9:37am ndbob:

painful james
  9:37am Jessibird:

@james Deep pity. I imagine you still bear the scars.
  9:37am listener james from westwood:

i learned more as a child about music (great amer songbook & classical) from warner bros/m-g-m cartoons and my mom's broadway soundtracks than i did in my music classes.
  9:39am still b/p:'s not your fault. It's not your fault. No, it's not your fault.

It's not your fault.
  9:41am trish:

More ? Less ? How about widening good learning exposure to music everywhere - inside and outside of classrooms.
  9:43am Jessibird:

Trish, I'm doing my part, though with adults, not kids. I'm sorta the Doug Schulkind of my workplace.
  9:43am listener james from westwood:

my healing began on sept 14, 1992 when i first listened to wfmu.
  9:43am Jessibird:

Whoops, Schulkind, not Schulking, unless it's now a verb, to Schulk!
  9:44am listener james from westwood:

like remedial education for the musically deprived, which in the wasteland of pre-internet nyc radio, comprised millions.
  9:47am trish:

And play, too..
Musicians' Brains Highly Developed
ScienceDaily (May 5, 2011) — New research shows that musicians' brains are highly developed in a way that makes the musicians alert, interested in learning, disposed to see the whole picture, calm, and playful. The same traits have previously been found among world-class athletes, top-level managers, and individuals who practice transcendental meditation.
  9:47am Drummer Some:

It's OK, Jessbird. I fixed the typo. I am an out-of-work copyeditor. (Let me have my fun.)
  9:48am Jessibird:

I shoulda been a teenager during bugalu's heyday. Fortunately, I am good at regressing.
  9:48am Brian in UK:

'The Incredible Schulk' Crossed drum sticks on the brightest yellow outfit you can imagine.
LJfW you hittin' those 10 euro words today!
  9:50am Brian in UK:

Jessibird, have you tried the full rebirth programme, ever Friday for three hours, times variable.
  9:50am trish:

Er, maybe I meant this one :

Or not.
  9:51am Jessibird:

Brian, I'm gonna try. Keep feeding my cat nom noms, I'm sure he'll keep waking me up at the crack of dawn.
  9:52am listener james from westwood:

@Brian: It's in my nature (another copy editor here!). Depending on how the euro's doing vs. $USD, I may have to hoard those puppies.
  9:53am monica:

Well r-r-r-roll those R's, Doug!
  9:54am listener james from westwood:

@trish: Good info! Also seem to recall a recent article saying multilingualism had strong anti-Alzheimer potential.
  9:57am ndbob:

The Dixon Brothers are great... "The Intoxicated Rat" being a particular favorite.
  10:05am trish:


Yeah, good for the brain, not in the 'anti-' sense, but in the preventative sense. More in ability to deal w/ the consequences better and delay the onset of symptoms.

Like muscles and age ?
  10:09am Drummer Some:

Remember that outright fraud Baby Einstein? Exposed to be a complete pile of shit. Not like that Baby Sun Ra, however.
  10:12am ndbob:

I remember Doug.
  10:13am listener james from westwood:

Gonna have to dig that one article up. Might be worth refreshing my atrophied high school Spanish.
  10:13am BodegaMan:

I've got youngsters age 5 + 3 and am trying to gradually expose them a variety. They'll get it all eventually, but for now their favorite? The Beastie Boys. When they heard "Sabotage" they said "Dad that's song's crazy!"
Better than Baby Einstein. Maybe not as stimulating as Baby Sun Ra
  10:15am BodegaMan:

@Westwood James, how do you know the exact date you started listening to WFMU?
  10:17am trish:

"Baby Sun Ra"

Good one.
  10:18am ndbob:

I started listening to WFMU about 1998 - Charlie Lewis's show was the first one I heard.
  10:20am trish:


This blurb I caught has some links :
  10:22am listener james from westwood:

@Bodega: My first day at my first post-college job, where my new boss was the mighty Listener Chris from Bloomfield. He said, upon showing me to our office, "I listen to this weird college radio station. If it ever bugs you, let me know and I'll change the channel." Never bugged him and was pledging by the next Marathon.
  10:25am listener james from westwood:

And by coincidence, this Martian Love Call is one of my earliest WFMU memories, along w. Sandy Bull's Orff banjo cover.
  10:27am Drummer Some:

I had that Sandy Bull record but lost it!
  10:27am texas scott:

this Mij is fantastic!
  10:28am ndbob:

After hearing just a few minutes of Charlie's show I called him up and told him it was already the best show I'd ever heard.
  10:28am Drummer Some:

For Mij, go here:
  10:29am BodegaMan:

I was a big Grok-er in high school. we read "stranger in a strange land" and were majorly into the concept of Grok - it really made us push boundaries.
  10:29am KevinfromBayRidge:

Hello Doug, Hello All!,
having some envy issues here since I can't actually listen to DrummerSome at work. The Man has blocked every stream except "Flash" Guess slightly delayed gratification will have to do till I listen on the archives later.
  10:31am Drummer Some:

If you have an iPhone, you can listen to the stream right of the WFMU app. C'mon, get appy!
  10:35am texas scott:

thanks for the Mij link,Doug.
Dangerous,that one.
  10:36am listener james from westwood:

At my last full-time job, I was called into HR to be chastised for listening to the stream over the company Internet. A quick call or email would have gotten swift and permanent compliance. But this waste of carbon wanted to make a point. Being laid off from that place was in some ways a blessing.
  10:37am ndbob:

dangerous texas scott?
  10:38am seang:

I listen to WFMU continuously here in a library at BU--keeps me happy
  10:38am Brian in UK:

That's funny I lost a Sandy Bull album too, did you find out 'oud' done it?
  10:39am texas scott:

shaking hands with it,as we speak.
  10:39am Drummer Some:

i once got called into my boss's office because someone complained about the loud music coming from my carrel. Then my boss died unexpectedly.
  10:39am Drummer Some:

Not, like, right then. A few months later.
  10:40am Brian in UK:

When was he expecting to die?
  10:42am ndbob:

when i was working tech support i got quite a few "what the hell are you listening to?" comments
  10:44am listener james from westwood:

At my 1st job, I drove someone nuts w. a track on FMU that repeated the word "seatbelt" for what seemed like 15 min. still better than the goddamn z-100 my officemates insisted on after another radio-station choice vote.
  10:44am jk:

@seang, greetings from across the river at MIT
  10:46am BodegaMan:

Steven Reich's "It's Gonna Rain" forced me to wear headphones for the rest of my tenure at a job in the 90s and early aughts. It put my bubbly co-worker over the edge.
  10:48am seang:

Hey jk! -*waves back across the Charles*
  10:48am listener james from westwood:

Reich rained on her parade! I dig that track.
  10:51am Brian in UK:

Love the word Ducky, it's my favourite term of endearment (women only)
  10:52am jill:

Seang - here's a link to something i promised you awhile back - K-DOE on wwoz...
  10:53am Jessibird:

Gotta leave for work, where unfortunately we're not allowed to stream music, even though we're an internet provider. What is wrong with this picture!!
  10:54am Drummer Some:

Thanks again to your cat, Jessbird. Y'all come back, now, y'hear!
  10:55am Carmichael:

Better late than never, I always say. And I seem to ALWAYS say that lately. Hi Doug, people.
  10:56am KevinfromBayRidge:

Doug, Thanks for your app-titude (rimshot!!!). I gots my Android FMU app, even got 4G.But I also got a big fat work edifice that isn't Tmobile friendly.
James, yeah I've been there with my IT folk, luckily as resident fossil, they generally lay off.And yes I can drive my coworkers crazy( don't we all!?) my usual weapon is FMU yodeling.
  10:58am Alex in Illinois:

Me too Carmicheal. HI Doug, Hi everyone! I did not get to work and connect until about 09:00 CDT/ 10:00 EDT, so I missed the first hour.
  11:00am Carmichael:

When my staff acts up, I force them to listen to Bryce's music.
  11:01am listener james from westwood:

Jessibird, that is bizarre. Does that fall under the category of "Don't get high on your own supply"?
  11:04am Andy S.:

I knew that Allman Bros. Band drummer Butch Trucks had played in The 31st of February but don't think I'd ever heard anything by them 'til this morning. Great cut -- thanks, Drummer!
  11:06am Jessibird:

James, my coworkers do phone support, so each of us has to listen to our own music with headphones. I guess the combined traffic of all those streams has ill effects on our network. It's OK really, I have many GBs of tunes on my hard drive. I just get sad when I can't join the party here.
  11:08am ndbob:

jessibird - that's the reason i couldn't stream at work
  11:08am seang:

Thanks Jill!--dude is inspiring
  11:10am jill:

and here's a short documentary -
  11:12am Drummer Some:

Glad you like, Andy S. I included 31st of February in Mining the Audio Motherlode (I think) last week.
  11:13am listener james from westwood:

The archives/downloads/podcasts really were a boon once i lost the ability to stream.
  11:21am Drummer Some:

Ach! The phrase "lost the ability to stream" just sent shivers.
  11:27am listener james from westwood:

Hoping *that* doesn't happen for at least another couple of decades!!
  11:29am Drummer Some:

Here is my Motherlode from 5/25, with a link to the 31st of February LP:

Listener James, that was a disturbing pun (especially my suddenly advanced age).
  11:31am KevinfromBayRidge:

Doug, Thanks for the perspective & reality check. @56, so far so good.( notice my total lack of cheap puns!)
  11:35am KevinfromBayRidge:

Carm, Bryce...No, I consider that the nuclear option!
  11:36am BodegaMan:

so jill's doc post reminded me. I'm researching short biographical documentaries. Preferably on artists (painters, sculptors) but musician's could work as well. also anything with an experimental flavor is what I'm mainly interested in. Anyone have some they like to recommend? or should I post my e-mail to not clog up the commenting? not sure of the protocol.
  11:36am Brian in UK:

Tasty birthday cake? DS? Where are the party bags?
  11:37am Drummer Some:

I had a lovely birthday cake. Made by my daughter (with an assist from Jessie and Duncan [Hines])
  11:46am Brian in UK:

Lovely set if I may write so. Still partial blindness on the party bags. I'm sure some of the prefects could do the distribuion with the swag.
  11:51am listener james from westwood:

Agreed on the lovely set. Looking forward to hearing this one a couple months from now when it comes up in my queue of DL'ed archives.
  11:54am BodegaMan:

i guess I know the protocol now! have a good weekend drummer folk. Great show DS.
  11:54am ndbob:

excellent show as always doug!
  11:55am glenn:

roof torched down, house not burning, and here i am for the last 5 minutes.
  11:56am Brian in UK:

Missed you glenn, are you OK?
  11:57am Drummer Some:

Welcome Glenn. Good-bye!
  11:58am glenn:

i didn't burn any hair off my arms this time. everything's peachy.
  11:59am listener james from westwood:

have a great weekend, all, and thanks for the fine show, doug!
  12:00pm glenn:

i stream, you stream, we all stream for ......and here's where it all falls apart.
  12:00pm glenn:

what about skip spence?
  12:01pm trish:

Good show, Doug. Grazie mille.
  12:02pm glenn:

oar is fantastic. it's better than pink moon.
  12:04pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Well Doug, I guess it was a great show...but I'll have to get back to you on that! Have a great western PA weekend.
