Listener comments!

  5:52pm listener james from westwood:

howdy all and happy tuesday from stormy northern nj!
  5:52pm glenn:

apparently we're made out of rocks.
  5:54pm listener james from westwood:

i like this story for its potential to vex fundamentalists.
  5:55pm Doug Schulkind:

Pittsburgh had its storms earlier today.
  5:56pm Doug Schulkind:

That story reminds me of that late great record story Rocks In Your Head.
  5:58pm glenn:

hmmmmmm. what doesn't vex fundamentalists?
  6:00pm Andy S.:

Returned Sunday to NYC after my first visit to Memphis in over 30 years. Heard O.V. Wright on the car radio (WDIA, 1070 AM) and Rev. Al Green preaching at his Full Gospel Tabernacle Church. Good God-if-there-is-one, y'all!
  6:00pm listener james from westwood:

the governor of texas!
  6:01pm listener james from westwood:

(that is, what doesn't vex fundamentalists, in re: glenn)

i'll go with the rev. green and kevin nutt on thursdays over rick perry!
  6:05pm Doug Schulkind:

Ah, O.V. Wright! The poor soul was to gospel-ly for the soul set and too soul-ly for the gospel set. Never got stuffed in the right square hole.
  6:15pm Doug Schulkind:

Next up: A bizarre duet with a tabla player and...Buddy Rich!
  6:15pm ndbob:

Heya Doug and everyone!
  6:16pm ndbob:

Saw that story Glenn... very interesting.
  6:17pm listener james from westwood:

evening, ndbob!
  6:17pm glenn:

it's very cool.
  6:18pm Doug Schulkind:

Hi ndbob,
Are you back home yet, or still roadtripping?
  6:20pm ndbob:

I'm in Baltimore for a couple more weeks.. then the long drive home.
  6:21pm ndbob:

Scheduled to go record shopping tomorrow with Gary Mitchell (Levine) and record shows this weekend and next.
  6:23pm Doug Schulkind:

Ah, Baltimore. Most people think I'm from Baltimore (and I wish I was).
  6:24pm ndbob:

it's nice to come back and visit for a month - don't think I'd want to live here again though.
  6:27pm Doug Schulkind:

At least the Orioles have me well-prepared for being a Pirates fan.
  6:28pm Doug Schulkind:

This is Colin Walcott on sitar, by the way. Just thought you'd wanna know.
  6:29pm ndbob:

That they do:).
  6:31pm glenn:

yeah, the pirates have kinda sucked for the last ten games. if the blue jays still had roy halladay (and a bullpen) they'd be killing the a.l. east.
  6:34pm glenn:

or maybe not, but it's great to see my team is oh so close to being great again.
now if we just had a nice ballpark.
  6:38pm listener james from westwood:

if you rebuild that park, don't use the contractors they used in the bronx. apparently moneys were paid to overlook inspections. allegedly. so they say.
  6:40pm glenn:

oh hell, building inspectors everywhere are prepared to look the other way for enough chai.
  6:41pm Brian in UK:

Hello erverone from bruised and bluddy UK. Someone mention O V Wright? There can never be peace while there are still troubled souls like him in the ether.

Doug, does L Shankar feature on your radar?
  6:42pm Doug Schulkind:

The ball park in Pittsburgh is stunning. Maybe the most beautiful ever. For the last few months, at least (previous 10 games notwithstanding), you could even watch the game.
  6:43pm Brian in UK:

Doug NOTHWITHSTANDING thought I had the copyright on that one!!
  6:43pm Doug Schulkind:

Greetings Brian,
I've yet to develop a great affection for Shankar. There's still time, of course. I'm, um, young.
  6:45pm glenn:

younger than some of us, anyway. it kinda freaks me out that i'm older than THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
  6:46pm Brian in UK:

Brother glenn give us a joke and forget the age crap.
  6:48pm glenn:

see, ya tell one good joke, and that's all people remember you for.
  6:48pm Doug Schulkind:

Next up is a tune by Shankar. Shankar Jaikishan that is. It is described thusly on the record jacket—"Raga Todi: This morning melody depicts a serene emotion with a tinge of pathos in it."
  6:49pm Doug Schulkind:

Can't you just taste the pathos?
  6:50pm glenn:

kinda tastes like butter chicken.
  6:51pm Brian in UK:

Is bathos when you have a wash?
  6:51pm glenn:

with some lime pickle on the side.
  6:52pm listener james from westwood:

and two hardboiled eggs!
  6:53pm ndbob:

excellent show as always Doug!
  6:54pm glenn:

hey, brian, did you know that maggie thatcher helped develop soft ice cream? i'm gonna have to sell my dairy queen stock.
  6:54pm listener james from westwood:

jazz masala's going nicely with proofreading!
  6:54pm Brian in UK:

Had some garlic pickle recently. Stunning. Recommended.

LJfW Fish Pie tonight. Side order of Mezcal.
  6:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Thanks ndbob. I aim 2 please.
  6:55pm listener james from westwood:

that works for me. mezcal's a sound chaser for a weird day.
  6:57pm listener james from westwood:

that thatcher fact is the second oddest invention story i've heard. first would be the fact that legendary voice man paul winchell got the 1st patent for an artificial heart.
  6:58pm Brian in UK:

glenn Thought (hoped) she has passed.

Been making chili relish (70 Scotch Bonnet chilis)
  6:59pm glenn:

and........ who was the actress who invented decoding machines ( i think)?
  6:59pm monica:

your muy humids sounds are perfect, doug.
  6:59pm monica:

i meant humido, HUMIDO!
  7:00pm Doug Schulkind:

Muchimas gracias, Monica!
  7:00pm glenn:

hedy lamarr.
  7:00pm Brian in UK:

Can never quite figure the aftertase of mezcal/tequila.

  7:01pm listener james from westwood:

hedley! hedley!
  7:01pm glenn:

and it was torpedo guidance systems.
  7:02pm glenn:

which, given the bras they all wore, is kinda fitting.
  7:03pm Brian in UK:

Loretta's son was in Moby Grape. I'd do any thing for Randolph Scott.
  7:03pm glenn:

which son was that?
  7:04pm Brian in UK:

  7:05pm glenn:

also re: moby grape. jerry miller is eilen jewell's guitar player. we love her.
  7:05pm Brian in UK:

aka Peter Lewis. The one on the left on the first album. Cool white roll neck sweater.
  7:06pm Brian in UK:

No more Milton/Morton moments!!
  7:06pm glenn:

huh. you learn something new every day.
  7:08pm glenn:

no. milton's a pretty good name. morton's kinda dorky.
  7:08pm listener james from westwood:

that closing track was en fuego! love it!
  7:10pm Brian in UK:

Hey Doug, trouble played the T.K. Ramamoorthy earlier. Small world.
  7:12pm Doug Schulkind:

Thankfully there is enough T.K. Ramamoorthy to around. What a revelation that record is. Wow!
  3:34pm math baps:

beautiful set is there a way to get a high quality-esk listening?
  3:40pm Doug S.:

@math baps
This listening via the pop-up player is the highest quality version available. WFMU has nearl 12 years' worth of all its programming archived. Saving files larger than this would take up too much space. Cheers.
  9:01pm Yuruani:

Awesome night, very fresh righ here in Venezuela, 75 degrees and great music!

the bluerhythm blog has some interesting stuff...and check out - uncovering the story of jazz in India
