Any humans in the crowd?
  6:07pm ndbob:

nope... but speaking of oboists... did you ever hear mitch miller's classical oboe records?
  6:09pm Doug Schulkind:

I certainly didn't mean to imply that oboists were inhuman.
  6:13pm Doug Schulkind:

Thank you oh thank you, mighty anonymous pledgers!
  6:13pm Glenn Lambert:

Not all oboists, but I wonder about Mitch Miller.

I need you to donate to WFMU now. Please make a contribution via the pledge thermoter widget above. Just a little from a lotta people will get the job done.
  6:31pm Bec:

oboists are roboets, only an automaton could have that kinda lip control.
  6:32pm Doug Schulkind:

Just $343 will get us to 50%. If everyone listening now pledged 10 clams we'd make it.
  6:33pm Doug Schulkind:

Glad you mentioned robots, Bec. Keep your ears peeled.
  6:40pm Doug Schulkind:

Yusef Lateef performs "Robot Man" on Norwegian television:
  6:43pm Doug Schulkind:

Picture Yusef moving all stiff-bodied to the music, dancing like a robot. Watch the vid. KALOOKA!

Lots of interesting material here that I've never heard before.
