morning Doug and Monica! Time to get the coffee going...wish I could share a cup with ya!
  8:09am Doug Schulkind:

Hi Maggie! I'll be home with my dirty laundry for the weekend... (Because that is what adopted sons do.)
  8:19am Maggie:

as long as you don't air it!
  8:19am Paul Sherratt:

What time is it ?
  8:20am Doug Schulkind:

That depends on how much more work you have, Paul.
  8:22am Doug Schulkind:

No you are not crazy, Paul. I am live on the stream right now double-checking the connections. Had some minor problems starting the Tuesday show.)
  8:31am Paul Sherratt:

Loads of work Doug, .. but I was late for the show last Friday and it was even LATER when I looked to EST clock !!!
  8:32am Doug Schulkind:

About to jump off for about half an hour or so and them jump back on at 9:00am (ET).
  8:37am Brian in Uk:

Arternoon, got some jump leads ready boss.
  8:44am Doug Schulkind:

Is it too early to start talking about frothy adult beverages, Brian?
  8:48am glenn:

i'm assuming jump leads are booster cables. those british with their quant britishisms. bonnets and boots indeed.
  8:48am Brian in Uk:

I'm going for a bevvy with a friend after your show. But it's never too early to talk 'bout it.
The way Bellamy juggles the words.
  8:49am texas scott:

Looking forward to hearing that loopy Christian stoner rock !
  8:50am Doug Schulkind:

I'm still so sad for ol' Peter.

Hey Texas Scott! Glad you're up oily!
  8:52am Brian in UK:

@ the canadian. Tish & tosh sir. Lawkins I've a mind to kick you in the nadgers with a wrought iron grundle.
  8:53am Doug Schulkind:

My nadgers are well kick'd, mate. Aim a little lower.
  8:54am glenn:

har har. i'm putting on my jockstrap as we speak.
  8:55am Doug Schulkind:

Radio as full-contact sport.
  8:55am glenn:

okay, what's a grundle?
  8:56am Brian in UK:

Cross border raids commence.

Have you no imagination, sir?
  8:57am Parq:

Ready and waiting, DrumSum. Good civil servant that I am, I have the day off, so I will be able to catch pretty much the whole show live for a change.
  8:58am Doug Schulkind:

Today's show is simultaneously live on WFMU proper and on the stream. Strap in everyone!
  8:59am Brian in UK:

I'll refer you to this FMU blog
  9:00am Parq:

Glenn, about seven dollars an hour. Doug, my ears are in stapping good health.
  9:00am Amanda:

You's live now!
  9:01am glenn:

i'm a busy man. i have no time for imagination.
  9:01am Parq:

(But my spelling needs work.)
  9:01am listener james from westwood:

heh, y'all were better than i was at ferretting out today's playlist url early this morning. happy friday to all!
  9:02am Marmalade Kitty:

Hey hey! :)
  9:02am Doug Schulkind:

Everyone, please say hello to AMANDA, our magnificent board-operator @ WFMU!.
  9:03am Parq:

Hi, magnificent Amanda!
  9:03am Doug Schulkind:

This show, which broadcasts every Friday morning over WFMU's alt stream Give the Drummer Radio, is being simulcast on WFMU proper this morning. (Same thing will happen in two weeks.)
  9:04am glenn:

we heart amanda.
  9:04am texas scott:

hola AMANDA!!
  9:05am Marmalade Kitty:

..well hello there!
  9:05am Amanda:

Hi, Parq, glenn, texas scott and all GTDS listeneers! Doug, Nachum just said he's sorry he didn't do his traditional intro for you (and says hi). Let's get ready for nutty madcap Drummer simulcast action.
  9:05am Amanda:

(and hi, MK!)
  9:06am Chris Isle Of Man:

Hello Amanda
  9:06am listener james from westwood:

a fine friday morning to you, amanda!
w00t—was able to iron in the other room w/ gtds on the 91.1!
  9:06am Doug Schulkind:

Tell Nachum he's got two weeks to practice it!
  9:09am Brian in UK:

'Allo Amaaaanda
  9:09am ndbob:

morning doug, amanda, everyone!
  9:10am Doug Schulkind:

Hiya ndbob!
  9:10am david:

listening to the WFMU proper just 'cause I can. nice to hear your voice on the airwaves. that little bit of static sounds nice.
  9:11am fred:

Good morning Doug and listeners.
Be extra careful today, Doug: it's 11/11/11 and Spinal Tap drummers didn't fare all that well
  9:11am Amanda:

Haha, fred. :-) But yes, happy Metal Day to all!
  9:12am Doug Schulkind:

Goodest morning to you, David.

Fred, that scares me a bit.
  9:12am glenn:

just wait 'til 11:11 a.m. for the full nigel tufnel monty.
  9:13am still b/p:

Nutty madcap, nadger-kicking, grundle-juggling potty mouths, and today we're just absolutely in eel heaven, eel heaven, eel heaven!
  9:15am Doug Schulkind:

I've always refered to 11:11 on the digital clock as "picket fence." I think henceforth I will call it eel heaven.
  9:15am Parq:

Wait, you mean there was a segue from Hatikva to Juju this morning and I missed it?? Darn my poor planning!
  9:16am listener james from westwood:

love catching those stream segues. sometimes that closing "Bam bam bam bam BAAAAAAAM" meshes nicely with the stream-only cut.
  9:17am Doug Schulkind:

Not exactly, Parq. We had to run a little buffer in between to establish my stream on the airwaves. There is a 20-30 second delay.

Bam bam bam bam BAAAAAAAM is my ideal, LJFW!
  9:25am Hugo:

Doug, what was that long organ piece just prior to show startup? Kinda enjoyed that. And good afternoon to y'all.
  9:25am Drummi Summi:

Awop-bopaloobop ba-wop bam bam bam bam BAAAAAAAM

  9:25am glenn:

well, i gotta make like the carmina burana and be orff. chowdah.
  9:25am Doug Schulkind:

We will stepping out of our Dominican spaceship for a moment to visit Colombia. Then it's back to the D.R. to finish this set.

Perfect diction, Drummi Summi!
  9:26am Doug Schulkind:

Adios genn. Nice opera reference. (Is that a request?)
  9:28am ndbob:

great opening set here doug.. i am now awake
  9:29am Doug Schulkind:

And all the ballplayers used to use amphetamines. This is more fun with slightly more dangerous side effects.
  9:41am Amanda:

Beautiful song.
  9:41am ndbob:

  9:45am Parq:

We want the folk. Give up the folk.
  9:47am david:

oooff. glad I'm not listening to this on a sunday.
  9:47am Doug Schulkind:

The song following Lucinda, which I've been listening too non-stop for a week, makes me just weep.
  9:48am Amanda:

Are we going to make it through Friday?
  9:49am Mr. Two-Arms:

Lucinda's vocal affectation is surprisingly subdued and pleasant in this song. Beautiful.
  9:50am trish:

And a billion more Fridays,
or so.
  9:52am Doug Schulkind:

The eerie tinkling piano on this just KILLS me. Like a weird Twilight Zone thing. Scary beautiful.
  9:53am listener james from westwood:

fine friday writing music.
  9:54am Hugo:

This Karen reminds me a tiny bit of another Karen, Dalton.
  9:55am Doug Schulkind:

You're right Hugo, but a with a lot fewer cigarettes and tad more tabs.
  9:59am still b/p:

I root for the Tadmore Tabs every year in college football.
  10:00am Doug Schulkind:

But their fans are such hooligans.
  10:03am Doug Schulkind:

Here's the loop Spanish loner Christian rock I promised.
  10:03am Tab Rats:

We'll....tip over, bud!
  10:04am listener james from westwood:

everyone's got that one song that just lets the waterworks go, if not more than one song. the wild thing is when it's a song you've never heard before and it just knocks you over.
  10:04am Doug Schulkind:

Are you knocked over, Listener James? (At least not knocked up!)
  10:05am tony:

Good stuff. Been reading "Electric Eden" by Rob Young which I stumbled on at the library - it's about the roots of the British folk and psych music scene. Highly recommended.
  10:06am Doug Schulkind:

Good morning, Tony! And you, too, Tab Rats.
  10:06am listener james from westwood:

heh, i only look knocked up, from profile at least!
  10:07am Doug Schulkind:

One last in the sequence. it's by a Connecticut high school music teacher with his students.
  10:09am fred:

@tony: thanks for the tip, I'm always on the lookout for good books about music. No I can only hope my bookshop can get it, all too often that's a chancy proposition
  10:10am Paul Sherratt:

" Where is she now ? "

Thank you and congratulations - "Just because!" <<<
  10:11am Doug Schulkind:

Something "foreign" in your tea, Paul?
  10:12am ndbob:

wow paul
  10:13am Paul Sherratt:

Just experimenting with a new coffee machine, Doug !
  10:14am listener james from westwood:

the horn/piano break & loop in the bed music makes me wish i laid music tracks for a living
  10:14am Listener Gregory:

Paul, thanks for posting that about Karen Best. It's about time she got the credit she deserves... just because! I know I speak for many others.
  10:15am Bob:

Having been a Connecticut high school student myself in 1977, I've very curious where in the Nutmeg State Twilight Nuages came from. A few web searches don't turn up a city name.
  10:15am Record Faire Slave:

schulkind is back!
  10:19am Parq:

How's it going there, Amanda? What are you reading?
  10:21am Amanda:

It's nice and peaceful here, nice to be at the station in the mornings. I am reading A Farewell to Arms for the first time.
  10:21am Amanda:

Although right now I am reading the playlist
  10:23am still b/p:

Which has the sparer prose?
  10:23am Doug Schulkind:

@Record Faire Slave
I never left (sort of)! You can catch me every Friday morning (and Tuesday evening) on the stream. Here is the link to listen to the stream:
  10:24am listener james from westwood:

i should reread that. read it for a college course. had to read 1 farewell to arms-length book/week. not the ideal arena in which to enjoy the works.
  10:24am Brian in UK:

Amanda, being as it is Remembrance Day I wish it really was A Farewell to Arms.
  10:26am Brian in UK:

Doug, was Argo mainly a classical label?
  10:26am Doug Schulkind:

Brian in UK,
Argo was a subsidiary of Chess in Chicago. Mostly jazz.
  10:26am listener james from westwood:

i had to digest bleak house in a single week for that course. read it again decades later after the masterpiece theater version was broadcast. soooo much better at my own pace.
  10:27am Amanda:

Brian -- hear hear! Veterans' Day, we call it. still b/p -- Hemingway is sparer, but you guys give him a run for his money on discussion of alcohol/food.
  10:27am Doug Schulkind:

In my old Brooklyn neighborhood, there was a laundromat called Bleach House.
  10:28am Brian in UK:

It's the platters that matter, in more ways than one.
  10:28am Amanda:

Ha ha ha ha!
  10:28am still b/p:

"Lunch was wet. The good way."
  10:28am trish:

For me it's Remember the atrocities of war. Celebrate peace.
No hero worship. Nada.
  10:29am Doug Schulkind:

Speaking of Veteran's Day, read this piece I wrote about my father for WFMU's blog a couple of years ago:
  10:30am trish:

No war ships at all.
  10:30am Paul Sherratt:

Brian ... ithe UK Argo specialised in the recordings of steam trains. I own LP ZTR 125.
  10:31am Brian in UK:

trish what peace only yesterday there was another roadside bomb death in Afghanistan. We learn nothing.
  10:33am trish:

Yeah, and atrocities once removed with the economy of war.
  10:33am fred:

@thrish: "if we must have hero worship, let us have a little she-ro worship to even things up a wee bit" -- Voltairine De Cleyre
  10:35am trish:

Unhh, 'shero schmero'
  10:36am fred:

Sorry, I meant @trish. I'm ovbiously too old for multitasking
  10:36am Doug Schulkind:

Someone much smarter than me once said, "A hero ain't nothing but a sandwich."
  10:36am Brian in UK:

As Doug's dad and so many others after the war just wanted to get on with the missing years. No time for gloryfing just remember lost friends.
  10:38am Doug Schulkind:

The son of a man who was in my father's battalion just read that piece and contacted me. His father passed a couple of years ago, at 92. My blessed father, also 92, is celebrating Veteran's Day by trying to forget the whole damn thing.
  10:39am Brian in UK:

Paul was this the same label that released the TT records?
  10:39am still b/p:

Noted the enthusiastic reaction the other day to shades of sheroism past:
(easy to click past intro ad)
  10:40am fred:

I don't mind heroes as long as I get to select mine, people who inspire me. I do mind leaders though.
  10:41am ndbob:

I read "a farewell to arms" and saw the 1957 movie as part of a Hemingway festival here in town a couple years ago
  10:41am Doug Schulkind:

Hugo, please sir, how do you pronounce Egil? And what does "samse tak" mean?
  10:44am Badema:

Supersexy sounds Mr Shaw, I'm having trouble holding on to my ears,
  10:45am Doug Schulkind:

Here is a sneak preview from next Wednesday's Mining the Audio Motherlode"
  10:54am Paul Sherratt:

The Isle of Man TT race sounds were on a series called ' Sound Stories ' on the small independent ' Stanley Schofield ' label.
  10:59am Brian in UK:

Paul, I remember hearing the Suzuki 50cc with, I think, an 18 speed gearbox. It was all gear changing.
  10:59am Amanda:

Are you gonna do an ID, Doug?
  10:59am marcury:

  11:01am Doug Schulkind:

Amanda, I did an ID at 10:56. At least I heard myself do it.
  11:01am Doug Schulkind:

Brother Marcury! El jefe!
  11:02am marcury:

Long time no Ocean
  11:03am Amanda:

I heard one at 9:56, but not in this most recent mic break... but maybe my selective hearing loss was acting up!
  11:05am Doug Schulkind:

Pretty sure I did an ID. I was quietly patting myself on the back for remembering. Maybe someone can start listening to the archive to check.

What'd you cook last night, Marco? (Or maybe, what didn't you cook?)
  11:10am jill:

11:11 am
  11:11am fred:

Here it is: 11/11/11 11:11
  11:11am Doug Schulkind:

And kewpie dolls go to Jill and Fred!
  11:12am Doug Schulkind:

Shouldn't we be eating only unelevened bread today?
  11:13am Amanda:

  11:14am Doug Schulkind:

Wrong holiday, Amanda!
  11:14am fred:

Congrats Doug, you made it past the Nigel Tufnel second without self-combusting.
  11:15am marcury:

Noodles, Noodles and more Noodles
  11:15am Amanda:

Sorry, I forgot that National Heckling Day is still a ways off.
  11:17am Nic Blarney-Smelkins:

Hi, I'm you're new DJ. Not sure where Doug went. Just a little pile of ash on the squeaky chair...
  11:19am fred:

Well, he was playing "The inevitable death ends the life" at that time...
  11:23am Tristram Strimblingham-Pumes:

Blarney-Smelkins does not know his arse from his elbow, please ignore his ramblings Mr Schulkind old chap.
  11:24am listener james from westwood:

must roll out of here, but thanks to the timely fill-in, will have gtds on the car radio loud & clear. have a great day, all, and a fine weekend!
  11:24am Marmalade Kitty:

Awesome Radio Mr.Schulkind!!! :)
  11:25am Brian in UK:

  11:26am Brian in UK:

Bye James, gotta cut & run too. Safe weekend ever one.
  11:26am tony:

LOVE this F. Kenya
  11:26am Doug Schulkind:

Blarney-Smelkins was sitting on my face. Not pretty. Adios James. Thanks M-Kitty!
  11:28am Mike East:

Just getting to work now. I heard that Running with the Wolves before getting on the bus in the car. Is that Jack Wilcox Sowards record available in wide release or as a reissue?
  11:33am ndbob:

on the great Flip label
  11:33am Doug Schulkind:

@Mike East,
Neither. But I did post a link to the blog that offered up a download. It's in one of my Mining the Audio Motherlodes from the past several months...
  11:35am earwax:

Any song with that much crying in it has to be great.
  11:36am Parq:

I dunno why, but that Vel-Aires track kind of brought me down.
  11:38am Hugo:

Samse tak? Something like "pull together", "join forces" in order to move, push, pull an object. Egil, that's difficult, because the e is not pronounced as it normally would be in English. But it's close to "e" in bed, best.
  11:39am jessie:

Oh my gosh, what a beautiful song that was!
  11:41am Doug Schulkind:

Thanks Hugo! You have good taste, Jessie.
  11:42am Parq:

My turn to book; thanks to DrumSum for the tunes and 'Manda for the board-work. Dig on, all.
  11:45am Doug Schulkind:

Have a helluva weekend, Parq.
  11:46am trish:

11/11s to all
  11:47am Doug Schulkind:

We are all one(s), trish.
  11:50am ndbob:

excellent show as always doug!
  11:51am Doug Schulkind:

Excellent listening, ndbob (as always!)
  11:51am Mike East:

Cool, Doug. I'll have to search for it. Thanks! Diggin' the show!
  11:52am trish:

A round of elevens,
  11:53am Doug Schulkind:

Email me and I'll find/send the link.
  11:56am Amanda:

Just saw Bryce come in! (on the downstairs door camera)
  11:58am Doug Schulkind:

Bryce is early! Give him a hug for me.
  11:59am Amanda:

I did! He is not ready to start yet but I will play some t00nz until he is.
  11:59am Doug Schulkind:

Thanks EVERYONE for a funtastic show!
  11:59am Amanda:

Thank YOU, Doug!!!
  12:00pm J J:

DOUG! Rock on!
  12:01pm Amanda:

Bryce is ready. See you soon everyone!
  12:02pm Doug Schulkind:

Amanda, let me know when I'm off the airwaves and I'll put the puppy outside. (Nice metaphor, eh?)
  12:03pm Doug Schulkind:

Oh shit, I forgot to thank AMANDA. Just like old times. Thank you so much Amanda!
  12:04pm Ike:

Heard you at 91.1! You were on the air! Did anyone tell you? ;)
  12:04pm Brass Knuckles:

Bryce usually puts on a song before he goes and takes a dump
