Listener comments!

  8:52am Maggie:

i'm ready to be Raptured by Drummer Some.
  8:54am Doug Schulkind:

One rapture, coming up. You want fries with that?
  8:55am Maggie:

i'm already fried, thanks. Morning, Doug and everyone!
  8:57am Alf from Upstate:

Morning Maggie!
  8:58am annie:

yay, the best way to go.. with the drummer
  8:58am Maggie:

where upstate, Alf? I'm sort of upstate too, near Newburgh.
  8:59am glenn:

oh right. rapture 2.0 is today.
  8:59am Alf from Upstate:

Upstate is a state of mind.
  9:01am ndbob:

,Morning Doug and everyone!
  9:02am Doug Schulkind:

Halloo ndbob, Glenn, and Annie. Jolly good greetings to you all.
  9:05am Doug Schulkind:

Unlike all those other shows, today's is gonna really be great. Long, captivating a capella blues number will kick things off.
  9:06am glenn:

who is this al capella?
  9:06am fishmonkeystew:

Good morning, Doug and all! Time to feed the drummer.
  9:08am Brian in UK:

Afternoon Boss. That's double figger pledges, you will tell me when to stop wont you?
  9:10am Parq:

Charlie Manna bit about a new Christmas song, ca. 1968:

Auditioning songwriter: I don't need a piano, thanks. This song is a capella.

Brill Building guy: Oh, an Italian Christmas song, I could use one of them!
  9:11am Doug Schulkind:

Thank you so much Brian!

Is that THE Fishmonkeystew who broadcasts Saturday mornings from 9:00-11:00am on 91.7 WHUS out of Storrs, CT? Live on iTunes: THAT Fishmonkeystew?
  9:12am glenn:

it's always a good idea to have the rapture on a friday. that way you get a long weekend out of it.
  9:12am Doug Schulkind:

Can I call you Zuccotti Parq?
  9:13am fishmonkeystew:

Why, yes indeed it is! Thanks for the props, Sir Doug! I've got a four hour show tomorrow, too! A freeform extravaganza!
  9:13am Brian in UK:

Mr Stew I did leave you a message on your playlist the other week, think twas 'bout Dire Straits.
  9:14am monica:

morning, doug! looks like this show is already SRO.
  9:15am Doug Schulkind:

The velvet rope parts for you, Monica!
  9:16am Parq:

Occupy the Fundraiser.
  9:17am still b/p:

Part of the entertainment in the end-of-world hoo-ha is the severe twist people get in about the amount of coverage Camping and his prophecies draw. I tend to agree...but whoa..The Conniption is mo' powerful than The Rapture.
  9:19am Brian in UK:

Is that other inmates in the background? Or your bathroom, Doug.
  9:20am fishmonkeystew:

Thanks for listening, Brian! Where did you leave the message? I don't think I got it. I hope you enjoyed the show.
Doug, this J.B. Smith is seriously soulful.
  9:20am glenn:

pray tell, what is the etymology of conniption?
  9:22am Doug Schulkind:

This same J.B. Smith record has a much longer a cappella number. Amazing stuff.
  9:23am Brian in UK:

Mr Stew Here in the blog bit

glenn it's not in the Oxford English Dictionary.
  9:23am Doug Schulkind:

That's right, still b/p, today is supposed to be the next "end o' the world." I hope it happens after noon (ET).
  9:23am Parq:

Magnificent segue.
  9:24am glenn:

huh. who knew?
  9:25am 90% dc pat:

here but not here....rock.
  9:25am ndbob:

this is really good
  9:25am glenn:

somebody's been listenin' to the wolf.
  9:25am Doug Schulkind:

I trade in exotic, wild magnificent segues. The laws of Pennsylvania are among the loosest in the nation.
  9:26am Maggie:
  9:26am Brian in UK:

Hey dc you made 90%. If only Doug were in that stratosphere.
  9:26am glenn:

pennsylvania. where deer meets segue.
  9:27am Doug Schulkind:

This fellow claims that he was nicknamed "Tail Dragger" by Howling Wolf himself.
  9:27am 90% dc pat:

this kills doug! Very Howlinoriented...
  9:27am Brian in UK:

  9:28am 90% dc pat:

is he still playin?
  9:28am Doug Schulkind:

Deer segue makes me think of deer sausage which makes me hungry.
  9:28am Maggie:

seems like it, Brian.
  9:28am glenn:

i gotta say, 5 minute long 1 chord songs definitely have their place.
  9:29am Brian in UK:

glenn just ask Status Quo.
  9:29am Van in Dallas:

Hi Doug and everyone. Been listening but really really busy at work...
  9:29am fishmonkeystew:

Doug, I just found a recipe for a baked pumpkin stuffed with venison sausage, mushrooms, and loads of veggies. Drooooool.
  9:30am 100% dc pat:

man drummer some, you're totally changing my emotional outlook. Really appreciate it....
  9:31am still b/p:

Merriam Webster offers the meaning, but says "origin unknown"...!
  9:31am Doug Schulkind:

Happy you're here, Van!

Read more about Mr. Dragger here:

Fishmonkey... but can you have it ready by noon?

d.c. pat: I won't be happy until you're at 110.
  9:32am Parq:

Doug -- Record Fair at all this year?
  9:32am glenn:

u.p. wilson. never heard of him, but i thought it might have been luther allison.
  9:32am fishmonkeystew:

Brian, that Dire Straights album was the 1st cassette tape I ever owned, and is one of my top ten favorite albums of all time.
  9:33am 100% dc pat:

working on it...
  9:35am glenn:

just remember d.c. pat; keep your stick on the ice and your head in the air.
  9:36am Brian in UK:

Mr Stew. Sultans of Swing was the last single that broke on me. Had 78s do that but not normally singles.
  9:36am Doug Schulkind:

Parq, don't think I can make this year's fair. Kinda breaks my heart to say it.
  9:37am Hugo:

Record Fair? I'll be there!
  9:37am Casey Kasem:

Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.
  9:41am Doug Schulkind:

So deeply profound of you, Casey. Should I play some U2?
  9:43am glenn:

or carl mann.
  9:43am 100% dc pat:

glenn? please translate to soccer terms...
  9:44am Casey Kasem:

PUsh me...go ahead push me.
  9:44am 100% dc pat:

maybe keep your cleats high and your fist full of your opponent's jersey?
  9:45am glenn:

Sounds good to me.
  9:47am Jon Lester:

Keep some beer foam on your lip and some Popeye's chicken at hand.
  9:51am glenn:

that freddie king box set is great, by the way.
  9:51am Doug Schulkind:

All that beer and fried chicken 'n' shit makes me love the Red Sox in a whole new way.
  9:54am glenn:

would that be the way in which you despise them and hope everything they touch turns to ashes?
  9:54am ndbob:

this is great!
  10:02am 100% dc pat:

that's it, I'm moving to Korea...
  10:03am Doug Schulkind:

It gets better.
  10:03am Brian in UK:

Is that your Seoul prupose in life?
  10:05am Brian in UK:

A prupose is a small amphibian found around the coast of South Korea.
  10:06am Doug Schulkind:

Science has proven the pruposes are smarter than humans. (And they can type 100 words a minute.)
  10:11am Flipper:

What I've been sayin', homes.
  10:11am pupusas:

But we are smartest of all, and delicious.
  10:13am Doug Schulkind:

A pledge of $69 will move the pledge thermometer up to 70%. Anyone willing to give it a shove? It will raise our collective morales.
  10:17am Lassie:

Tommy has fallen and needs your pledge!
  10:18am Doug Schulkind:

I get it, Flipper and Lassie. Can Rin Tin Tin and Mr. Ed be listening, too?
  10:19am Gentle Ben:

Wouldn't be anywhere else on a Friday.
  10:21am Doug Schulkind:

Clarence the Lion is still on the loose in Eastern Ohio.
  10:22am Elmer:

Just keep that fucker Simba away from me.
  10:23am Brian in UK:

Does Rusty the Dog mean anything to anyone?
  10:24am Maya:

Go ahead, ignore the elephant in the room.
  10:24am glenn:

does he have a nose?
  10:25am Brian in UK:

Sounds like a bottle of wine & smells like ......
  10:26am glenn:

how does he smell?
  10:26am Brian in UK:

  10:27am glenn:

ha. perfect teamwork.
  10:30am annie:

THAT'S what wrong with my email!!! i've not been receiving them!! hhmm...
  10:39am Carmichael:

Funky flute! Good morning Doug and those for whom the drum tolls.
  10:41am Doug Schulkind:

This amazing Sahib Shihab record is here:
  10:43am Doug Schulkind:

Hey Carmichael. I just thanked you!
  10:43am monica:

that sahib shihab track is killer diller, doug!
  10:46am ndbob:

morning Carmichael!
  10:46am Doug Schulkind:

I just emailed it to you, Monica!
  10:46am Carmichael:

Whoa, thanks Doug! Brian, speaking of dogs, did you say yours was named Spencer??
  10:47am Carmichael:

Hello dere, Bob!
  10:49am Brian in UK:

Yes sir, as I believe is yours. Mine from Stanley Spencer, painter, yours from Spencer Davis, popular musician. If I may be so bold.
  10:51am monica:

oh man, xmas came early! thank you, doug!
  10:51am Carmichael:

You, sir, are as sharp as the proverbial tack. Mine is a rescue from the local SPCA with the attitude of an ex-con.
  10:55am Brian in UK:

Got ours as a pup. That way there was no previous baggage. To misquote Philip Larkin 'Your owners they fuck you up'.
  10:59am Doug Schulkind:

Calling all two- and four-footed listeners: We need some num-nums to get this pledge total higher. Give the Drummer Some is lagging behind the other shows on the stream. Help me catch up! Here's the direct link to the WFMU pledge page:
  11:05am Van in Dallas:

I just Gave the Drummer Some
  11:06am Doug Schulkind:

Brilliant, thank you Van!!
  11:16am Doug Schulkind:

Thank you Van and thank you Listener Greg from Howell for a real kick-in-the-pants type pledge. I can't sit down!

THANK YOU EVERYONE. Keep it coming.
  11:23am Doug Schulkind:

Dig this cover of the Ogyatanaa Show Band album:
  11:25am Paul Sherratt:

Just got in ... but I know I'm in for a good 35 minutes
  11:26am Doug Schulkind:

I'll take good care of you, Paul.
  11:28am DOJG:

Hard to type with my head bobbing all over the place. How'd you get so funky?!
  11:30am Paul Sherratt:

Thanks Doug ...

Brian - your dog gets his name from Stanley Spencer ? I've got a Patricia Preece on the wall !
  11:32am Doug Schulkind:

I love it when you UKers start talking dogs. Can beer be far behind? (Oh no, I just racially profiled you!)
  11:34am Brian in UK:

I've got a copy of Spencer's self portrait when he was about 23. To me he is the spit of Townes Van Zandt.
Beer O'clock, Doug.
  11:34am Doug Schulkind:

Greetings, DOJG. Your name looks disconcertingly like "DOUG."

We've moved the ticker 15% so far during the show. I AM ONLY $39 AWAY FROM 80%!!
  11:35am Carmichael:

Oh my gosh, now I'm thirsty! I've already planned a lovely dinner of fish tacos and India Pale Ale.
  11:37am Hugo:

Beer is never far behind. Getting prepared for an evening session with a beer hound from Pennsylvania ...

Just found out about a German style tavern in Hoboken, NJ. To be explored ...
  11:37am Doug Schulkind:

Friday is homemade pizza and movie night in our house. (Way better than home movies and pizza night.)
  11:37am Brian in UK:

Singapore Laksa & Dunkertons Organic cider.
  11:39am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Mount Gay, Coke & lime - treats
  11:39am Brian in UK:

Carmichael, ever tried perry? It's like cider but made from pears. It's delicious. If you get a good brew the bubbles are really small like a good champagne.
  11:40am Paul Sherratt:

I had a lovely dog called Townes. Died too young too. I'm going to look for this Spencer portrait - that amazing one of him with Preece which The Tate owns is quite something.
  11:41am Brian in UK:

Paul check this out
  11:44am Brian in UK:

  11:45am Carmichael:

Brian, never tried perry, but a friend has started a cider business and is doing exceedingly well. Apple, pear and pomegrante so far. He currently has an apple cider infused with fermented agave. Vaya!
  11:45am Hugo:

Say no more (slurp)
  11:46am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Has WFMU ever compiled a record, if not you should, called 'Fuck Fidelity, Let's Dance!'
  11:47am Paul Sherratt:

What an excellent idea !
  11:48am DOJG:

  11:48am DOJG:

  11:49am DOJG:

  11:49am Doug Schulkind:

WFMU released an album back in the mid-'90s on the 100th anniversary of Thomas Edison's invention of the phonograph. It was a compilation of songs by WFMU DJs paying tribute (in their own way) to Edison. It was called "Edisongs."
  11:49am Chris - Isle Of Man:

I know, I want a copy already!
  11:49am Brian in UK:

DOJG It's like High Anxiety but more fun.
  11:50am Van in Dallas:

When I wasn't looking directly at them, I could swear my desk speakers were dancing just now
  11:50am DOJG:

...not so say fun(ky).
  11:51am Paul Sherratt:

He does look like TVZ !
Did you know that Preece brought about the death of W S Gilbert ?
  11:51am DOJG:

I think I made a mathematical error back there, things were so jumpy.

Also, so = to, above.
  11:53am Chris - Isle Of Man:

Van In Dallas - just had a similar suspicion of my dog!
  11:53am Carmichael:

Doug, although the record says Bay Area & San Francisco, the vast majority of the groups are from Oakland. It may sound like I'm splitting hairs, but they were really 2 different worlds in the 70s.
  11:53am Van's Speakers:

We were staring at you the whole time, Van!
  11:53am Brian in UK:

Carmichael sounds interesting but I thought agave was best for another drink.

Paul glad you can see some comparison. Was unaware of Gilberts demise.
  11:53am Doug Schulkind:

DOJG, you mad crazy Zen poet, you!
  11:55am northguineahills:

Good stuff Doug! It's been a while since i've caught you live!
  11:55am DOJG:

Is this King Lee?
  11:55am Carmichael:

Aretha Franklin wrote Rock Steady?!? AllMusic gives her the credit.
  11:56am Doug Schulkind:

Funny, I've been watching you live every week, northguineahills!

Yes, DOJG, yes.
  11:56am Alex in Illinois:

What has happened to the stream? It's broken right now. Every time I stop and restarted, I hear 2 beats, I guys voice, thenthe volume overloads and it goes silent.
  11:57am Doug Schulkind:

Holy rolling in the dough, Batman, we're only $19 away from 80%. We can do it, Brothers and Sisters.
  11:58am Alex in Illinois:

It is sort of working now.
  11:59am Doug Schulkind:

Hmmm, Alex. Not sure what's happening for you. I haven't had any reports of problems and everything appears normal on my end. Anyone else having issues??
  11:59am Van in Dallas:

Much enjoyment for this listener AND his dancing speakers. Thanks Doug, good job! :)
  12:00pm Brian in UK:

Crystal clear (did she sing country onetime)
  12:00pm Doug Schulkind:

WFMU recently began switching its stream over to a different system, but Give the Drummer Radio's switch happened several days ago and it went smoothly.
  12:03pm Van in Dallas:

Crystal Gayle sure did, and I saw her in concert in, wow, 1980?
  12:03pm ndbob:

excellent show as always Doug!
  12:07pm DOJG:

Thank YOU, Doug. (You almost got a great name there...)
  12:07pm Brian in UK:

Enjoy the pizza & fix that rail in the bathroom.
  12:07pm Van in Dallas:

Wow, only $4 away from 80%
  12:07pm Doug Schulkind:

Thanks one and all!
  12:08pm Doug Schulkind:

Only $4. That's within the margin of error!
