Listener comments!

  8:37am annie:

  8:38am Doug Schulkind:

A blessed good morning, Annie. Let us pray...
  8:41am annie:

(leaning forward in the pew for the invocation)
  8:43am Doug Schulkind:

I thought you were at the organ!
  8:46am Parq:

DrumSum, while we're waiting, can you identify the version of "You Belong to Me" that played at about 8:05 EDT this morning?
  8:47am annie:

oh, the regular lady came in, amanda, right?? i've been choosing the hymns.
  8:48am Doug Schulkind:

Parq, that was by Catherine Irwin.
  8:48am Chris in Durban:

No organs in sight this end - but surely grinding away in anticipation of a great weekend - cheers Doug!
  8:49am Doug Schulkind:

Oy Chris! Always a thrill to know your aboard ship. Grab a bucket and start bailing.
  8:51am Chris in Durban:

looks kinda cool from down below Doug - lets rather jump into the fount again?
  8:55am Doug Schulkind:

You are closer to the weekend than I am, Chris.
  9:01am Parq:

5 - 4 - 3 - 2 -
  9:02am Doug Schulkind:

  9:03am Maggie:

That's what I'm talking about.
  9:05am Doug Schulkind:

Maggie, my adopted mother! (Tread lightly, because my real mother is in da howse—literally—this morning. She fights like a grizzly.)
  9:07am Maggie:

(treading lightly!) the sound of your show's start always makes me happy.
  9:10am Doug Schulkind:

Here's where we try to guess how many packs a day Mr. Barbosa smoked. I'm figuring north of four.
  9:11am Parq:

This morning's opener reminds me, although I realize we're talking two different languages -- did anyone else think "Passione" was lame? I find it's mainly been the delight of people who otherwise never listen to non-US/UK music.
  9:11am Paul Sherratt:

I'm listening Sir, but lots of homework to finish off ...
  9:12am Paul Sherratt:

Do you think that wonderful Adoniran may have been a smoker ?
  9:12am Doug Schulkind:

You attend to those last few patients, Doc Sherratt. They expect your full and complete attention.
  9:14am david:

'mornin all. I'm glad to be tuning in live today.
  9:14am Doug Schulkind:

Parq, are you speaking of John Torturro's film about Naples? I missed that one.
  9:15am Doug Schulkind:

Hi David!
  9:16am Paul Sherratt:

Doc ?
  9:17am Parq:

DrumSum, my take is that it was a collection of Italian Worldmusic videos, visually sumptuous but not offering anything that someone like you doesn't already know.
  9:18am Doug Schulkind:

Personally, I am infatuated with the music of Sardinia. That amazing polytonal group harmony singing. Make a movie about that and I'll be a puddle.
  9:21am Doug Schulkind:

Oh what the hell, I'm already a puddle.
  9:22am Doug Schulkind:

Marcelo Zona Sul:

"In Rio de Janeiro, more specifically in Copacabana, the sixteen year-old rebel and reckless teenager Marcelo is a terrible student that plays hooky from school and a liar. He dreams on leaving his home and move to São Paulo to work hard, make money and travel abroad to visit the world. Marcelo worships his cousin, who is rich and lives in São Paulo after visiting many countries. Marcelo's father Anacleto is a bureaucrat that has been recently promoted and wants that Marcelo works with him in the office; his girlfriend is Renata, who studies in the same class; and his best friend is Miguel Luiz that Marcelo calls Zé Miguel whose wealthy parents are always absent, traveling in Europe. When Marcelo schedules to spend the afternoon in Floresta da Tijuca with Zé Miguel, Renata and her friend Carmen, they steal the jeep of Miguel's cousin and Marcelo drives to a remote area. But the jeep has mechanical problems and they have to spend the night in the forest. Meanwhile, their parents call the school and find that they had lied about the exams at school triggering consequences for their acts. Marcelo is spelled from school, Renata breaks with him and he decides to hitchhike to São Paulo with Miguel. But when they are hungry on the road, they reevaluate their plans."
  9:23am Hugo:

Something like this one?

True; very special.
  9:25am Doug Schulkind:

Precisely, Hugo.
  9:26am Hugo:

I noted that the web site has the following info on this record:

Facts: Einzigartig

Quite so.
  9:29am Mariana:

as a brazilian, I'm really enjoying today's show :)
  9:31am Mariana:

Really not terrible! haha
  9:33am Doug Schulkind:

Mariana, "not terrible" is about the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me!
  9:33am listener Rey:

Finally a Friday off from work. Uninterrupted Drummer Some bliss all morning!
  9:34am Andy S.:

Drummer: Great and rare sounds, as always. Say, did you see the article in The Independent (UK) today about Pittsburgher Paul Mawhinney's efforts to sell his 3-million piece record collection?
  9:34am Scott W:

Morning Doug! Music sounds soooo good, but your mic break is punching holes in my ceiling -- can you pull back a bit on the mic?
  9:35am Mariana:

Just by spreading -- and enjoying -- our wonderful music you get a lot of credits from me :)
  9:38am jill:

Ahoy mateys! (feeling nautical this morning)
  9:38am Doug Schulkind:

Sorry Scott! Anyone else got a holey ceiling? Everyone, please do let me know if you have any issues with the broadcast. I am all ears.
  9:39am Doug Schulkind:

Andy S,
Is Paul Mawhinney back in the news? There was a round of articles—even a short film—about him and his situation about a year ago.

Hey hey Rey!
  9:49am Doug Schulkind:

More about Paul Mawhinney:
  9:52am Hugo:

Truly amazing. But there's also this place:
  9:53am Bob:

I think that the best thing to play after "Ouallaftini" would be the Beatles' "She Loves You." "Yeah, yeah, yeah..."
  9:56am Doug Schulkind:

I had the SAME thought.
  10:00am Aaron in JCity:

morn' drummer - love it but i gotta catch it on the archive - thanks for the lastest installment of the motherlode!!
  10:03am Doug Schulkind:

My pleasure, A in JC.
  10:10am Doug Schulkind:

Albert Einstein's first-ever appearance on the show?!
  10:13am Doug Schulkind:

Thunder storms just caused a brief loss of power here. Had to reboot. Hold on for a wild ride.
  10:15am Hugo:

Riders on the storm?
  10:18am Doug Schulkind:

It is raining Biblically here in Pittsburgh.
  10:20am Doug Schulkind:

And can you freaking guess the name of the song coming up after the next one? "I Wish It Would Rain."

I kid you not.
  10:20am Brian in UK:

Mornin' Cap'n. Roger the cabin boy & splice the mainbrace. Avast there. A vast what I know not. Prepare the ark. What's a cubit agin, God?
  10:21am david: one. feels nice.
  10:22am Hugo:

  10:24am Doug Schulkind:

If I put that video on, Hugo, it'll go over the air. (Of course that would probably not be a bad thing...)

Ahoy, Brian in UK. I see you've stopped looting long enough to have a listen!
  10:24am jill:

Sound is out...I just looked at the radar for P'burgh - looks pretty sever right over the city. Hang in there Drummer!
  10:25am Doug Schulkind:

Jill are you saying you're getting no sound from the stream?
  10:27am jill:

  10:27am Hugo:

Actually, that was Lovin Spoonful - Rain on the roof.
  10:28am Doug Schulkind:

Is anyone hearing audio from the stream?? All my indicators are indicating that I'm still streaming. Please fill me in on your situations.
  10:28am Mariana:

I wish it would rain here in Rio. All this sunny goodness sometimes gets tiring... not.
  10:29am Brian in UK:

I can do both. Who says men cannot multiusk
  10:30am Shaun:

Stream fine here.
  10:30am Merv:

Loud and clear here in Athens, GA
  10:30am jk:

I can't hear you at all, thanks for asking
  10:30am seang:

I can hear you
  10:30am Bob:

There was a blip, but I've been hearing you fine since the beginning of "I Wish It Would Rain."
  10:30am Michael:

no stream problems here Doug
  10:31am don:

loud and clear
  10:31am Maggie:

hear you fine, Doug. There was a moment of silence but that was it.
  10:31am Mitten John:

Loud & clear 128k in downtown Motown
  10:31am Brian:

Sounds great here
  10:32am listener Rey:

coming in ok here in NJ.
  10:32am Hugo:

Loud and clear here east of East Orange ...
  10:33am jill:

its back on! I saw it streaming on itunes, but no sound. Now to get the Stillers play all season like last night and the world will be a nicer place.
  10:33am Brian in UK:

Lost you.
  10:33am Brian in UK:

Back on
  10:33am trs:

Listening via the app-stream. Rain teases all week, but nothing substantial. The plants are game to wilt.
  10:33am jk:

wait! lost you for a sec
  10:33am Michael:

just burped again
  10:34am Bob:

Just lost you for a few seconds while you introduced this current rockin' tune, but now it's back.
  10:35am Brian in UK:

There was rain coming thru the ceiling during Joe McGasko's show on Sunday. Get the buckets out.
  10:36am Carmichael:

I finally made it back! Hi Doug, hi everyone!
  10:37am Doug Schulkind:

It's true, the roof at WFMU leaks, too. I guess it must be ME.
  10:38am Doug Schulkind:

Odd but true: During that last round of technical challenges, the number of people listening to the show WENT UP. You guys are incredible.
  10:40am Hugo:

Also here, apparently ...
  10:42am Brian in UK:

Got anything by The Ambulance Chasers or The Train Wreckers?
  10:42am listener james from westwood:

got sprung from the client visit early enough to catch the bottom 1/2 of the show. happy friday to all!
  10:42am Mariana:

It's not always about music. Everyone enjoys a good drama.
  10:46am Doug Schulkind:

Listener James from Westwood is here! You missed the power-outages and bucking bronco action on the stream, James. We need your calming influence.
  10:47am seang:

Furthur! break on through!
  10:50am listener james from westwood:

yikes! i just read the whole deal. now sending good vibes into the stream for more tranquil transmission.
  10:52am Artie:

If this Boxhead Ensemble track doesn't chill things out, I don't know what will...
  10:53am Hugo:

Fred Lonberg-Holm on the cello? Seen him several times in different settings, most recently with the Vandermark 5. Nice!
  10:54am Doug Schulkind:

Exactly, Artie, exactly. Of course, I didn't know it would be necessary when I planned this set last night.

Yes, Hugo, Fred on cello. Vandermark in this group, too.
  10:54am Michael:

Sounds like Dirty Three sorta kinda
  10:54am trs:

Sounds like a good rain. Or a week's end. Or a refreshing drink. Or a..
  10:56am Carmichael:

Hey, I likes me some Min Bul. Great bass line.
  10:56am Hugo:

Min Bul: Seen this lot, too, back in the day. Got the vinyl.
  10:57am Doug Schulkind:

WEIRD UPDATE: If just five people now listening to WFMU online switched to this stream, we'd have more listening over here (compared to WFMU's online audience only). That's just crazy.
  10:58am Artie:

That bass line drive reminds me of Morocco.
  11:00am Hugo:

That's Bjørnar Andresen on bass. Rather unusual hearing Terje Rypdal on soprano sax, or any sax for that matter.
  11:01am Doug Schulkind:

And, of course, Espen Rud on drums.
  11:02am Hugo:

Quite right, Doug.
  11:03am Brian in UK:

Terje Rypdal's 'After the Rain' perhaps?
  11:10am Hugo:

Brian: That one came much later. Do have it, though ...
  11:12am Brian in UK:

Hugo, thought it was appropriate to the weather conditions. Late 70's? ECM?
  11:15am listener Rey:

didn't Dennis Coffey use that African Jumbo lick in 'Scorpio'?
  11:17am Doug Schulkind:

Wow, did he? Have to check that out!
  11:17am listener Rey:

or vice versa?
  11:18am Shaun:

Holy Warbles FTW!
  11:20am Hugo:

Yes, ECM 1976. It's sunny here! (I'm not making this up ...)
  11:21am Brian in UK:

It's another relentless number.
  11:21am Doug Schulkind:

God Bless Holy Warbles (he obviously already did).
  11:22am Brian in UK:

  11:24am annie:

just sayin' how great these tunes have been. in and out of my room this morning, but it's all cohesive enough to think it's been the same piece for over an hour..
  11:26am Doug Schulkind:

That's about the nicest thing you could say, Annie.
  11:28am annie:

and i'm a sucker for the drumming
  11:28am Doug Schulkind:

Just had another power outage, despite it being clear and sunny now. Couple of hiccups, but we seem to be back on track.
  11:30am annie:

i'm hearing a blues tune
  11:32am Doug Schulkind:

Blues? I'm not playing blues at the moment. Well, maybe Pakistani blues.
  11:33am Doug Schulkind:

Well that WAS an old blues tune. Had to reboot again...
  11:34am annie:

this one is old and scratchy.. in english and still bluesy
  11:34am Shaun:

Maceo- on and off.
  11:35am annie:

yup... back and forth..
  11:36am annie:

alrighty then, i have to shut this off and go to work at the store.. sad to miss this mosh of sound..
  11:40am Doug Schulkind:

Lost power....I'll keep trying.
  11:41am ndbob:

Heya Doug and everyone!
  11:42am listener james from westwood:

morning ndbob!
  11:44am Doug Schulkind:

Are y'all hearing Clay Hammond sing You Threw Out Your Lifeline?
  11:45am Brian in UK:

Getting your lifeline from the Ark.
  11:46am listener james from westwood:

Yep! Clay all the way.
  11:47am ndbob:

  11:47am Doug Schulkind:

I'm like one of those circus clowns keep all the plates spinning. We've got some breakage in Aisle 7!

Just when I had the stream back on track, I lost the Internet connection. All seems (knock wood, dammit) A-OK.
  11:50am listener james from westwood:

this set was worth the tsuris!
  11:53am Doug Schulkind:

Having you say "tsuris" was worth doing the show.
  11:53am Carmichael:

THanks Doug. Gotta run to a meeting!
  11:55am Doug Schulkind:

Cheers to you Carmichael.
  11:56am monica:

another great show, doug! lovin' this "smog" jam!
  11:58am Doug Schulkind:

Hey Mo! Let's hope I can get through the next 5 minutes without another power outage...
  12:02pm listener james from westwood:

glad to have heard the chunk I got back in time to hear, esp. this closing soul set. gotta head out, but everyone have a peaceful weekend. thanks, doug!
  12:04pm Mariana:

Thanks, Doug, this is my favourite place to liten to music. And kiss that Mister T duck for me, will you?
  12:04pm ndbob:

excellent show Doug.. catch what I missed on the archive.
  12:07pm Doug Schulkind:

Lookout Mister T-Duck, here I come.

Thanks ndbob, as always!
  12:07pm Mariana:

Grew up listening to Zé Ramalho :)
