Listener comments!

  8:51am Alf from Upstate:

Settling in for a good one, Doug. Let 'er rip.
  8:52am Doug Schulkind:

I will endeavor to meet, if not exceed, your high expectations, Alf!
  8:56am listener james from westwood:

a glorious and sunny fall friday greets the stream team from northern nj!
  8:57am Doug Schulkind:

Roll up those jeans and go wading with me, James. There'll be a lot of hand-holding and Kumbaya-ing.
  8:58am listener james from westwood:

i could use it. chaotic week but the signs point to good things ahead.
  8:59am ndbob:

morning doug and everyone!
  8:59am Doug Schulkind:

Has there ever been a woman punk-rocker named Kay Ottic? Well, there should have been.
  9:00am Parq:

DrumSum, the stream is way loud and a bit distorted. Little too much gain, mayhaps?
  9:00am Brian in UK:

  9:01am Brian in UK:

Eileen Dover?
  9:01am earwax:

Yay. It's Friday and GTDS
  9:01am listener james from westwood:

morning ndbob, parq, brian, earwax!
doug, that would also make a good roller derby handle.
  9:02am Maggie:

This opening and Mr. Finewine's always make me happy.
  9:02am Doug Schulkind:

Hmmmm, curious observation Parq. All my settings are the same. It's possible the gerbils back at WFMU did some gnawing. Anyone else hear a problem?

Thanks for the 411, Parq. G'morning to you and earwax and Brian in UK and the majestic Maggie.
  9:07am glenn:

there's no gain without pain. err. something like that.
  9:07am listener james from westwood:

Finewine's got one of the iconic FMU in-themes. It just shouts "Weekend!"
  9:09am Doug Schulkind:

I made a slight adjustment, Parq. Sound any more bettah?
  9:09am monica:

morning, doug! look forward to chaz's return. and the vault mystery. and this morning's show!
  9:09am glenn:

i don't know about kay ottic, but an old girlfriend of mine had a childhood friend named carrie oakie.
  9:10am still b/p:

This stream is always louder than the regular stream, sometimes to a pretty hot level, often with near-distortion in mike breaks. I adjust and then adjust back later.
  9:10am glenn:

and i once went on a date with sue kret,
  9:11am Brian in UK:

Our dogs favourite 'Nora Bone'
  9:13am Parq:

Yeh, that did the trick, DS. B/p speaks the truth -- your stream is consistently louder than the FMU air stream, but not as bad as when I first plugged in this AM. Happy to be of what little help I can.
  9:13am Doug Schulkind:

still b/p, the distortion on the mic breaks is all on me. I promise to perfect my techniue sometime before the next 25 years is up.

Hey Monica! Some chewy nugats in the next set I think you'll especially enjoy.
  9:19am listener james from westwood:

heya monica, b/p, & glenn!
  9:19am glenn:

l.j. represent.
  9:20am glenn:

just practising my street cred. or stream cred to be more accurate.
  9:21am ndbob:

hey everyone i haven't said hello to
  9:23am Parq:

Dug (no pun intended) the Penguin Funk. Give the Drummer Some is so sensitive to my needs.
  9:23am Brian in UK:

Are you really filling in for Scott today? Like what is writ on the front page. Scott seems to be of a rather different kidney.
  9:23am Brian C.:

Sweet sounding show, Mr. S! Glad I and I tuned in!
  9:24am monica:

doug, he wfmu home page says you're filling in for the long rally this morning. must be an error as he's on now too. just fyi. hi there ljfw, glenn, parq and all.
  9:26am Cecile:

how come I'm hearing Skullflower?
  9:27am glenn:

too much coffee?
  9:28am listener james from westwood:

or not enough! i kid, i kid.
  9:28am Brian in UK:

Cecile, hello. I'm hoping to see Wuthering Heights soon, just come out over here. That's Scott's programme bye the bye.
  9:31am glenn:

lots of jamaicans and lots of great music ( and rotis and doubles and such ) here.
  9:33am Brian in UK:

Nature Boy by Eden Ahbez?
  9:33am ndbob:

you could probably fill up five shows with versions of "nature boy"
  9:33am Doug Schulkind:

Hey Cecile, make sure you've clicked on the link to this stream:

Yes, THAT Nature Boy, Brian. (Is there any other?)
  9:34am jill:

Sweet sounds this morning, mr. dj - happy friday to you all! Haven't heard this version of Nature Boy - Hollar!
  9:34am Brian in UK:

Mr Ahbez was a singular cove.
  9:36am glenn:

his real name was george alexander aberle.
  9:36am ndbob:

good one here
  9:37am Doug Schulkind:

Morning Jill! Yeah, I have a boatload of Nature Boys and that one was new to me.
  9:41am Van in Dallas:

Hi there Doug and folks. Just making it in
  9:41am jill:

apparently quite a number of people have recorded Nature Boy, most intriguing to me is Leonard Nimoy
  9:42am ndbob:

that sounds interesting jill
  9:43am Doug Schulkind:

Hi Van! Glad you're here/hear.
  9:43am glenn:

live long and fuck it.
  9:45am sara:

who is the artist of the jazz piece that was played right before 9 ???
  9:46am jill:

Nimoy (cont.)
  9:47am Parq:

@Glenn: "Live Long and Fuck It" is my new motto.
  9:48am listener james from westwood:

this is a live acoustic mashup of nature boy and the mad men theme, for your post-drummer enjoyment:
  9:49am listener james from westwood:

heya jill and van!
i'll be adding that motto to the bumper of my car.
  9:49am glenn:

glenn - providing mottos to other listeners since 2011.
  9:50am Van in Dallas:

Busy busy busy at work, and trying to catch up after traffic delay in today of about 35 minutes. I'm here/hear but mostly just listening :)

Oh and hi LJfW!
  9:52am pgw in mntclr:

my nephew's nickname for me is "PP"
  9:52am glenn:

my personal motto (maybe it's more of a slogan) is "i may not be perfect, but at least i'm not eurotrash".
  9:54am sara:

HEY DOUG - sara:

who is the artist of the jazz piece that was played right before 9 AM ?
  9:55am Doug Schulkind:

Sara, the tune that played just before 9am was "Sol Walk" by the Whitefield Brothers. Before that it was Barry Adamson's "Dirty Barry."
  9:58am Doug Schulkind:

Glad you shouted, Sara, I get a bit "distracted."
  10:00am sara:

a danke!
  10:00am Van in Dallas:

As much as I shout, moan, & complain to you Doug, I thought you would be numb to the shouting by now :)

I like the tunes this morning.
  10:00am glenn:

el payande is mucho awesomo.
  10:02am listener james from westwood:

pgw and sara catching the 10am (eastern) train to drummer station!
  10:02am KevinfromBayRidge:

Hello all,
Doug, yer doin a great unfill-in
Unfortunately, this is coming from a non-live listener( can'tget non-Flash streams at work).
look forward to "flashiing" live to DrummerSome next Fri.

Your loyal non-listening public
  10:03am Doug Schulkind:

Quite the contrary, Van. I crave the shouting more than I could express. The connection I make with people before during and after my radioing is deeply meaningful to me. Part of it is that, having moved to this new city with no existing community of friends in place, I rely on my WFMU connections for that sense of community. It gets challenging at times to catch and respond to every comment that flashes by on the playlist. But I give it my best shot.

Keep the shouting coming.
  10:05am Doug Schulkind:

You should send an email to WFMU's Stream Team. They will surely be able to help you do a work-around to get the stream. There are multiple ways of accessing it. My wife had the same problem and WFMU's tech geniuses helped her. Send email here:
  10:06am glenn:

barry adamson had been playing bass for something like a month before he joined magazine.
  10:07am Van in Dallas:

Give the Drummer Some Shout Out :)
  10:10am Doug Schulkind:

Loud and clear, Van, loud and clear!
  10:12am KevinfromBayRidge:

Unfortunately, my employers have resolutely blocked streaming in any non-flash form. My hope springs eternal for a DrummerSome live flash stream.
  10:13am fishmonkeystew:

Greetings to you, Doug, and to all of my fellow listeners!

As for funny names, I occasionally have to work with a guy named Bucky Love. It does cause a chuckle or two on occasion.
  10:14am glenn:

disco fountains? sources?
  10:16am Doug Schulkind:

I hear the stream through my iTunes, the same way I hear the regular WFMU stream. Can you hear WFMU at work? If you have an iPhone, you can listen to the stream via the WFMU app. C'mon, get appy!
  10:17am Doug Schulkind:

I love how the first word Blas Duran sings is "Mommy." Maybe it'll make more sense when you see the album cover:
  10:17am trish:

Headphoned and happily working away, here, and cranking through the do-lists, when I might otherwise be Friday-clock-watching.

  10:18am ndbob:

nice cover there doug
  10:18am Doug Schulkind:

Do, Trish, do!
  10:24am jesse:

one of the worst things about having last friday off for armistice day was no Doug-Bryce day. glad to be back in the fold
  10:31am Hugo:

Give the Drummer Some Scenarios?
  10:31am Doug Schulkind:

As I just announced, Give the Drummer Some will be LIVE on WFMU and the stream simultaneously next Friday.
  10:32am Van in Dallas:

Will you and Amanda be alternating tunes or sets or something? Looking forward to the experiment in any case!
  10:33am trish:

I like the sounds of Hugo's suggestion.
If the show is half-and-half, maybe lose the 'some'?
  10:34am Doug Schulkind:

I don't think we can alternate tunes because of the huge (sometimes 20-30 seconds long) delay it takes my signal to get processed. I'm guessing we'll alternate sets or something.
  10:40am Brian in UK:

Listening on the archive. This application is something else.
  10:41am ndbob:

the before the revolution collection is really good.. got it when it came out
  10:43am Hugo:

There shall be no nefarious scenarios ...
  10:44am Doug Schulkind:

I simply ADORE recordings with the sounds of insects in the background.
  10:44am Brian in UK:

ndbob IN 1909?
  10:46am Brian in UK:

Like Beatles, Crickets etc.
  10:46am ndbob:

the cd:)
  10:46am Hugo:

Insects shall be foregrounded ...
  10:47am Doug Schulkind:

Yes, Hugo, sounds like the puny humans are in the background on this one...
  10:47am Carmichael:

Hi people of popular persuasion. Got here just in time, as I love hoomei, Tuvan singing and anything that even remotely resembles it.
  10:48am trish:

Or, it's one helluva vibrator..
  10:50am Alex in Illinois:

In some places they actually attach an insect to the gewgaw/jews harp/ guimbard / trump /maultrommel for extra accompaniment, or even just hold and insect near the mouth and shape the overtones produced
  10:51am Doug Schulkind:

Trish, Give the Drummer Radio is officially blushing.
  10:52am ndbob:

i remember a cd of all insect sounds..."dragonfly heartbreak": i think
  10:53am Doug Schulkind:

I love this photo, taken, according to Wikipedia, in Arnhem Land:
  10:53am Hugo:

Sounds are nothing but vibrations in the air ...
  10:55am Alex in Illinois:

. . . so I was hoping that you might have a recording of someone playing an insect. I forgot to add Morchang, Morsing and Kubing to the list of names.
  10:55am Doug Schulkind:

ndbob, Sublime Frequencies put that out, methinks.

Alex in Illinois, I think I love you.
  10:57am ndbob:

right doug
  10:59am Alex in Illinois:

ndbob, I think I'll look for that CD. Last spring/summer, the nocturnal sonorous insects did not come out until the end of July. In was kind of disturbing, walking the dog with the weather nice enough to wear shorts, but with the insect sounds missing. So, if the insect noises are absent again next spring, I can play that CD in my iPod when I walk the dog.
  11:02am Brian in UK:

Parallel programmes with Scott. They are on dolphins & wildebeasts. Problems with embrochure on the big animals.
  11:07am listener james from westwood:

whoo, back in front of the computer. had to bend my accountant's ear. wanted to see if the drummer stream counted as a healthcare deduction b/c of stress relief and extending longevity. sadly, irs has not yet recognized its benefits.
  11:09am Doug Schulkind:

Listener J from W, by listening, you are de facto "volunteering" for a charity.
  11:11am earwax:

@listener james We can just start referring to him as Dr. DrummerSome M.D. that might help convince the irs
  11:11am trish:

Fine music to go with a favourite and practiced phrase. And the latin is good, too: <i>Solvitur ambulando</i>
  11:12am Hugo:

Pittsburgh - add and juggle a few letters and you get Spitsbergen. That's way up north.
  11:16am listener james from westwood:

one fmu volunteer @ the record fair was able to count the volunteering time toward their community service. i filed that for later reference.
  11:16am Doug Schulkind:

Wow, Trish, I had no knowledge of the "It is solved by walking" universe!
  11:29am trish:

I don't know much about it. Historic. Time tested and my own experience. I like that Latin amble-related root.
  11:33am Van in Dallas:

Was married to a Thai woman for the Thai music, thanks.
  11:35am Doug Schulkind:

Well, I Googled the phrase and the world cleaved open.

My pleasure, Van. If you'd consider providing translations, my rates are very competitive.
  11:36am Reading Between the Lines:

Van, Honey, do you want to talk about it?
  11:36am Van in Dallas:

I was never fluent in Thai, Doug...and I've lost a lot in the years since...
  11:39am Hugo:

I lived in Bangkok for three years. Managed to learn the numbers to be able to bargain better. Might have saved a few Bath (possibly).
  11:40am Van in Dallas:

There was a popp-ish diva, HUGELY popular in Thailand in the 80s & 90s...saw her in concert in Frankfurt, W. Germany before she died at a very early age (20s I think) of cancer. Very sad. Something like "Pung Puong"
  11:40am Doug Schulkind:

Best Thai food I've ever had was in... Utah! Bluff, Utah—a tiny town in the Four Corners region. A U.S. vet had met and married a Thai woman during that SE Asian conflict. Brought her home and they opened a restaurant. (Now closed.) Amazing food.
  11:40am Van in Dallas:

Yeah I know the numbers and enough to be dangerous I guess, could even read a little, all because my wife didn't WANT me to learn ;)
  11:41am ndbob:

wow - closest thai restaurant to here is in fargo - almost 100 miles
  11:43am Van in Dallas:

I LOVE Thai food - my favorite. I always give the staff a laugh trying to speak my broken and quickly-fading Thai ha ha
  11:43am glenn:

i hope you're getting paid a lot for looking after that missile silo, ndbob.
  11:44am Hugo:

I lived in a compound above an American who worked for the US Army and who had a married a woman from Isan (Northeast Thailand). Nice guy, often invited us for barbecue and Budweiser.
  11:44am glenn:

closest thai restaurant to me is about 2 blocks away. it's nowhere near as good as the one that's 3 blocks away.
  11:47am Van in Dallas:

What was that Thai blog again there please Doug...?
  11:48am Doug Schulkind:

Oh Van, you are in for a major treat:
  11:49am Van in Dallas:


And also - I found her!! THIS is who I was talking about - Pumpuang!
  11:51am Brian in UK:

Indonesian grub does it for me.
  11:52am Van in Dallas:

I was close. She died in early 30s, and not from cancer, but kidney failure. Next time you are in a Thai restaurant, ask them to play her and you will amaze them :)
  11:53am Doug Schulkind:

The Asian food is uniformly lousy in Pittsburgh.
  11:55am ndbob:

when i was in baltimore this summer had thai food half a dozen times
  11:56am Hugo:

Perhaps one also ought to mention this band which I believe is still ongoing. Very popular back in the day and still is.
  11:56am Alex in Illinois:

I think glenn and I might live in the same metropolitan area.
  11:58am Van in Dallas:

@Hugo - Will have to check them out too. Were you attached to the US embassy then perhaps in Bangkok? And I would have preferred Singha over Bud :)
  11:59am Doug Schulkind:

See if you can get the double entendre in this last song title...
  11:59am glenn:

nope. me in toronto. although my mom's great great grandparents, the o'hare's, apparently owned some land there, before they came to canada.
  12:01pm trish:

I think a whole lotta North America lives in the same metropolitan area when it comes to xyz
  12:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Hank the Hammer did it, why can't you?!!!!
  12:02pm Van in Dallas:

So Doug, just curious, if you enter "Pumpuang" in your artist playlist, is she in your database? I would be most surprised if so.
  12:02pm Van in Dallas:

Great show - many thanks!
  12:02pm ndbob:

excellent show as always doug!
  12:02pm listener james from westwood:

aw, mama, can this really be the end?!
  12:04pm Hugo:

I was working for one of the UN organisations. I do agree about Singha in Thailand (and San Miguel in the Philippines).
  12:05pm jesse:

thanks Doug!
  12:05pm listener james from westwood:

dug it, drummer! a fine weekend to all!
  12:06pm Doug Schulkind:

Thanks everyone. "Twas mighty fun!
  12:40pm Brian in UK:

W'happen. You gone.
  12:43pm Doug Schulkind:

I wish it could go one forever, Brian. But I need to eat, sleep and change the cat box every once in a while...
  1:02pm Doug's Cat:

Hey thanks Dad.
