" Industrial garden town. that's just as funny, actually "

That's why I posted the link !
  9:15am leslie:

occupy pittsburgh!
  9:15am Brian in UK:

Paul, funny I went there once only for work though. Keegan grew up in Doncaster, my cousin Billy played with him for Donny skools I believe.
  9:16am Doug Schulkind:

I'd love to get one pledge to get the ball rolling and the ego inflating. Do we have any takers?
  9:17am still b/p:

Not the best swimsuit...but who am I to say?

Meanwhile,in this season: Family in Mass. called 911 to be rescued out of a corn maze the other day. Take me through a music maze this mornin' -- I won't call for no help!
  9:19am ndbob:

saw that story b/p
  9:19am listener james from westwood:

this is why i always bring a chainsaw into a corn maze. great conversation-starter too.
  9:19am Lisa from Brooklyn:

You got me, Doug - I'm pledging right here, right now.
  9:20am still b/p:

Find a lot of real skeletons in those mazes.
  9:20am Doug Schulkind:

Lisa (and a cast of nameless thousands) you are my hero.
  9:22am Doug Schulkind:

Your pledges are my 911 call outta this maze! (I heard that that family in the maze was, like, 25 feet from the street. How goofy.)
  9:24am next wave:

Occupy Corn Mazes!
  9:24am Van in Dallas:

well hello and good morning
  9:26am 85% dc pat:

raining again...anybody else going to the DC United game tomorrow??
  9:27am Doug Schulkind:

It's "Raga Day" at WFMU today. Along with Scott McDowell, Kurt Gottschalk and Rich Hazleton, I am playing a raga in its time-appropriate slot. Listen for my raga next...
  9:27am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Hi Doug, haven't been able to tune in for months, good to hear the show again
  9:28am Doug Schulkind:

Good afternoon, Chris!
  9:28am Brian in UK:

Got any Jerry Rag(a)ovoy as it is three months since his passing.
  9:30am 85% dc pat:

ah raga day, just what I needed. Hanx drummer.
  9:30am listener james from westwood:

perfect for proofreading. this day will be productive!
  9:33am Bob:

What time of the day is right to play raga rock? I suppose the night time is the right time.
  9:34am Artie:

Ragarrific Friday to all!
  9:35am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Speaking of ragas, are you aware of the Darbar festival, I've watched it for the last couple of years - essential stuff..
  9:36am Doug Schulkind:

Brian, that visual pun deserves a motherloving pledge! We are just $79 away from hitting the 50% benchmark. Please give us a boost!
  9:41am Brian in UK:

It is done oh somnolent one.
  9:44am Doug Schulkind:

All somnolescence aside, this music is making me drowsy.

Chris, I have not watched any Darbar festing. Thanks for the link.
  9:45am Brian in UK:

Cor blimey everyone dropped orf to sleep then.
  9:46am Doug Schulkind:

Wow, we're at 50. Seems only right, since I turned 50 this year. THANK YOU so far. We're halfway home.
  9:46am Brian in UK:

That's why everyone's busy pledging.
  9:48am Doug Schulkind:

THANK you VERY much.
  9:50am still b/p:

Give the Drummer Some Knoll Essence.
  9:52am Doug Schulkind:

The dollar amount assigned to this show by the poobahs at WFMU is $2000. So it is easy to figure out how much a pledge will mean in terms of the percentage of the goal. Every twenty bucks is another percent. If everyone listening now dropped $20, well you can guess what would happen. (Obviously, many of you listening have already given. But you get the idea.)

@still b/p
Give the Drummer Some grassy Knoll Essence.
  9:55am listener james from westwood:

must bug out briefly for phone conference. will leave this on to enhance the meeting drudgery.
  9:55am Doug Schulkind:

Just, please, no Matt Drudgery.
  9:56am Warren Commission:

  9:57am Doug Schulkind:

Good morning, Warren. Glad to have you aboard.
  9:57am Brian in UK:

What do you call a man with several rabbits on his head?
  9:58am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Don't know..
  9:59am Doug Schulkind:

Not bald?
  9:59am Brian in UK:

  10:00am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Wahey! Genius!
  10:00am still b/p:

  10:01am Brian in UK:

A black hole opened up & I dived in.
  10:01am Artie:

I would have gone with "Pellet Pate Pete", but OK.
  10:02am Paul Sherratt:

Chris - IoM, are you a tax exile ??!!! Haven't been to the island for a couple of years or more. Came back with some fine music which from a certain dj chaps 'reject pile' - Meg Baird, S Whitt Denson, Elvis Perkins.
  10:03am Brian in UK:

Nice Artie.
Doug, 'Pahadi' was quite wonderful.
  10:05am Chris - Isle Of Man:

No, born 'n' bred Manx fella, I know your name though, I think we've met, Cubbon.
  10:05am Van in Dallas:

lol, I literally work about 1/2 mile from said grassy knoll
  10:05am Brian in UK:

Paul that's 'andy
  10:06am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Was the DJ Chris Shaw?
  10:07am Doug Schulkind:

Nice smattering of field recordings and folk performances from a variety of African locales, coming up in the next set...
  10:07am 90% dc pat:

Chris, how's your home island feeling about the cycling world champ?
  10:07am ndbob:

sounds great Doug!
  10:08am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Very proud! I think he's our first world champ.
He's been made a freeman of the Borough.
  10:09am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Lollywood - lol
  10:10am ? = Paul Sherratt:

Chris, no, as Brian in UK has hinted , it was that Peel resident who has 'No Off Switch ' !
  10:11am 90% dc pat:

He sure deserves it, what a powerhouse! Freeman, eh? what does that does that give him?
  10:11am Brian in UK:

Doug 'Tactile' Schulkind.
  10:12am monica:

Doug, was "Raga Yemani-Bilawal" part of the raga brothers-in-arms thing with Scott, Bryca, and Kurt?
  10:13am Aaron in JCity:

Morning Drummer!
  10:13am Chris - Isle Of Man:

the Boy Wonder and Buster used to come round to mine for tea! may well have met you at the Creek if you were out with him, never saw his vinyl, in storage. Told me he had three tonnes of the stuff.
  10:15am Frank Meals on Wheels:

Can't tear myself away from my speakers.
  10:15am jk:

nice, destination out is a fantastic blog, can't wait for the Give the Jeffs some
  10:17am Doug Schulkind:

Monica, it was indeed. Happy Raga Day!

The family continues to grow, eh JK?!
  10:21am ?:

For others, the chap Chris, Brian and I are discussing is seen here ( easy to spot - he's wearing shorts )
It would be three tonnes I'm sure. I know because I once helped to move the bloody stuff when he changed homes in London. It's a wonder I lived to tell the small tale.
Is 'The Creek' that pub by the harbour in Peel ?
  10:23am Pedro:

Another fantastic show. And hearing a real live d.j. is so much better than just tunes without full context.
  10:25am BodegaMan:

This Efe Pygmies is wonderful. Kind of sounds like there's electronic aspects to it. but I'm guessing it's not.
  10:27am Hugo:

Paul, I thought that pic fitted nicely with the music right now. Seven tonnes, was it, all in all?
  10:27am Doug Schulkind:

I'm so glad you feel that way, Pedro. When WFMU offered to let me start up this 24-hour web stream, I said I do it ONLY if I could deliver my radio show live on it. It means the world to me.

Morning BodegaMan!
  10:28am Chris - Isle Of Man:

That's the one, he had a fish for coffee deal worked out with them, trip out on the boat - coffee at the Creek, I met a few people down there with him.
  10:29am Brian in UK:

Listening to these field recordings reminds me of this programme that was on the radio last week.
  10:31am Doug Schulkind:

Efe Pygmies were completely acoustic (with maybe some hallucinogenics assistance).
  10:32am Paul Sherratt:

Sixteen tonnes for all I know ! He did want me to buy it off him a while back but I'm in a de-cluttering stage of life !

For others - ' The Boy Wonder with Buster '

Chris what does Buster enjoy having for his tea ...?
  10:33am Randy:

Good morning Doug et al. Sorry I've been MIA lately.
  10:34am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Well it used to be my cats food, I'm not sure what he ate at home, crab possibly?
  10:34am Doug Schulkind:

Hey Randy! How're the fishes?
  10:34am Brian in UK:

It seems like there is a theme with people (mainly men) who travel abroad and collect native sounds from Cecil Sharp to the Lomax's! The accusation of personal gain and stealing from the natives. Not for altruistic motives.
  10:35am still b/p:

New movie featuring Bayaka pygmy culture probably has great music...but otherwise I'm apprehensive. It's a comedy -- "Oka!"
  10:35am Randy:

  10:36am ndbob:

agreed Pedro.. and having a live message board makes live shows even better.. I do wish that there was a full chat however.
  10:36am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Followed by a Marlboro Light?
  10:38am Brian in UK:

Hey Doug can we have some Sufi. It could be called Circular Music from Turkey.

Chris Did Buster smoke too?
  10:39am Hugo:

Paul - "decluttering stage of life" - yes, I can appreciate that. Most of the stuff goes on external hard drives, except for the odd cd and lp coming in ...
  10:39am Doug Schulkind:

No Sufi today, but not for the lack of love for it.
  10:39am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Definitely giving the drummer some here - great show.

Brian - like a chimney!
  10:40am ndbob:

sane here Hugo
  10:40am Doug Schulkind:

Thank you from the bottom of my record collection, Chris.
  10:42am Carmichael:

Hiya Doug, hello everyone. Shimmying away to MoMo.
  10:42am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Doug, can you estimate how many tonnes your collection weighs?
  10:43am 90% dc pat:

Here, here: HAIL EX!
  10:44am Paul Sherratt:

Marlborough Light and coffee .. no NEVER give Buster coffee.
AK stayed here with us ( N Staffs ) for a few days when he was ' on the run ' Our dog, Jim, amused himself no end by stealing both his fags* and lighter. He can run much faster than any DJ ..
* US friends - ' fags ' is UK slang for cigarettes ...
  10:45am ndbob:

  10:46am annie:

the visual for that last comment was delicious..
  10:46am Paul Sherratt:

ndbob, thanks.
  10:46am Hugo:

I saw the Ex Guitars with Ken Vandermark and Paal Nilssen Love a couple of weeks back. These chaps know how to bounce around the stage!
  10:51am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Incredibly, when AK was 'on the run' is when I first met Buster wandering Peel on his own, having escaped his foster parent, so I took him home and fed him. When AK returned I told him about it and the three of us bonded over a John Martyn discussion, and a fag or two at the Creek.
  10:53am Paul Sherratt:

I have a permanently fixed picture of dog Jim running in circles around the garden with a broken cigarette hanging from the corner of his mouth.
  10:55am Doug Schulkind:

Paul, had wonderful beagle named Lubi when I was a kid. She got real sick one time and we took her to the vet who, after a number of tests, diagnosed emphysema. No kidding! And she didn't even smoke that much. (It turned out to be epilepsy.)
  10:57am annie:

it's wonderful, all those video shorts which are stored in our brains.. morphing gradually to things which never could have happened.. but yes.. the idea of doug rubbing musical accessories all over himself is quite the image.. the image that most burns in my brain is the one of our 20-year old female cat cissy, giving birth to her millionth litter under the dining room table at dinnertime. classic!
  10:58am Paul Sherratt:

And yet Doug, Beagles are traditionally, very heavy smokers ..
  10:58am Doug Schulkind:

BING BING BING BING! Just thought I'd mention that today, first the first time in the history of my show on Give the Drummer Radio, there are more people listeing to the stream to the WFMU mothership online. Tony Coulter accomplished this two weeks ago, but this is a first for GIVE THE DRUMMER SOME. It simply blows me away.
  10:59am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Relive the moment @
  11:00am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Congrats drummer!
  11:01am jmr3:

I just switched from the main stream (fmu mainstream?) because Scott was talking about Give the Drummer
  11:02am Doug Schulkind:

Yes, Scott right now has Jeff Golick on his show who will be hosting a new program here on Give the Drummer Radio! Welcome jmr3!
  11:02am Paul Sherratt:

Didn't Buster get some Member Of Parliament, whose name I forget ( a Liberal ) in to some bother with the local council after she ended up fostering him for a few weeks ?
  11:07am listener james from westwood:

ahhhhh ... gtds makes any meeting more palatable.
kudos on the heavy online listenership, doug and tony!
  11:08am Chris - Isle Of Man:

I've no real knowledge of that Paul, but I'd hazard a guess and say, definitely, where Buster goes, trouble follows. Here's the real thing...
  11:08am Van in Dallas:

After 27 yrs of heavy smoking I quit cold turkey just over a yr ago. Just shy of emphysema. COPD sucks. Wish I could go back in time and slap myself silly for even thinking of starting. Sure miss it though.
  11:11am Doug Schulkind:

We've been stuck on 53% for a sec. Anyone care to kick us upstairs a bit? We really need to keep the stream a-gurgling.
  11:12am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Love the title of this tune, reminds me of another favourite title, 'Ya Hound Ya Lie'
  11:19am trsh:

Van, you miss having health problems? Nicotine withdrawal is nasty.
  11:20am Paul Sherratt:

Thanks for the tubes. Buster, if I remember correctly, was purchased through the sale of a hundredweight of surplus cds ...
  11:22am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Haha, I don't doubt it!
  11:25am Doug Schulkind:

I would love to introduce these monks to Thelonious. (They would envy his hats.)
  11:29am Doug Schulkind:

We've raised 10% of the goal during today's show. I would LOVE TO get that number up 75% by show's end and IMPLORE all to give something—any amount—to help out WFMU. Pledge using the widget atop the playlist and your contribution is recorded as supporting this here radio show. Thanks!
  11:32am Sister Hairy Hymen:

How do listen to this in windows media playere
  11:35am Doug Schulkind:

Sister Hairy, if you click on this link — — it should open in your Media Player. If that doesn't for, try this link:

Can other Winamp listeners help? I use iTunes on a Mac.
  11:36am Doug Schulkind:

Hey, how the hell are you SHH?!
  11:38am Van in Dallas:

@trsh - not at all :) (I'm at work and unable to watch the playlist comments much today!)
  11:38am Doug Schulkind:

Drive fifty-five, stay alive! Thanks so much!
  11:41am Hugo:

The one I'm using for Winamp is:
Works all the time.
  11:44am ndbob:

I use Winamp and just click on

congratulations on crossing streams today!
  11:46am Paul Sherratt:

>>>Most of the stuff goes on external hard drives, except for the odd cd and lp coming in
Hugo, same here. Ever since one fateful night in Pizza Express, Nottingham, UK.
Isn't this Sonny Boy a delight ?
  11:48am Doug Schulkind:

Thanks Jay Kay!
  11:51am Doug Schulkind:

  11:51am Brian in UK:

Spencer only goes for dog ends.

Sixty percent! That's beautiful. Hard driving to 100! Thank you all for the company and comradeship today!
  12:00pm Paul Sherratt:

Spencer the Rover, Brian ?
  12:00pm Hugo:

Paul, that one was a pleasant memory. Just had a chap from the University of Leeds over here for a couple of days.
  12:01pm listener james from westwood:

  12:06pm Artie:

How long we going today Doug? Is it a "LIVE TILL 75(%)" day?
  12:06pm still b/p:

I will take a second listen to Too Bhi Piala Chum later to dance the rain away.
  11:01pm Van in Dallas:

Poor abandoned Spirit sits on Mars after a job very, VERY well done, just waiting for someone to say "Hello" back. I so understand and sympathize.
  11:03pm Doug Schulkind:

Hello Van!
  11:16pm Van in Dallas:

You are more than amazing Doug. THANK you.
