Listener comments!

  11:55am tonyc:

Hullo dere!
  11:58am Carmichael:

AHA! I found you!
  12:00pm Alf from Upstate:

Welcome back Tony!
  12:01pm Ricardo Montalban:

Greetings, Senor Tony!
  12:03pm tonyc:

Greetings, all!
  12:03pm Doug S.:

Hello people! Hello Tony! Hello correct show!
  12:07pm Carmichael:

The original Kiss? A mime band ....
  12:07pm Manuel Iglesias:

Hola Tony! Salutti a tutti frutti !
  12:09pm tonyc:

Hiya, Manuel!
  12:09pm Jeremy Novak:

Hey Tony! Sounding great!
  12:10pm Jeremy Novak:

This drum machine must be the same one used by Suicide...
  12:10pm tonyc:

Thanks, Jeremy! (Und hallo....)
  12:10pm Jeremy Novak:

Hallo gallo!
  12:13pm tonyc:

Hell-o jello!
  12:15pm Carmichael:

Yellow jello. I'll be having green jello with suspended fruit on Thursday, as part of the food cram/beer swill/football OD fest.
  12:17pm tonyc:

By the by, this Wifflefist comp on now and three other tapes are featured in my most recent BotB blogpost: http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2011/11/blogpost-39.html
  12:21pm Ricardo Montalban:

That Glockenspiel track reminded me of Dennis Duck Goes Disco for some reason
  12:22pm Carmichael:

Back to the Hello People thing, I have a Todd Rundgren 2 LP live set called Back to the Bars. Before he sings Hello It's Me, he calls out about 20 people to help with background vocals. At one point he says, "The Hello People!", and names each one. I thought he called them that because they were singing background. But I clearly remember him saying "Bobby Seditas".

I never put 2 and 2 together until just now. Thanks, Tony! Seems I learned something today.
  12:23pm Carmichael:

  12:25pm tonyc:

Thanks, Carmichael! Plus, Dennis Duck was an early member of The Hello Ducks....
  12:28pm Ike:

I like this very much.
  12:31pm tonyc:

Top of the whatever-time-it-is to ya, Ike!
  12:33pm conrad:

'sup Tony! Is there a story behind your motto "I play rhinoceros and psychedelic fork," a reference I'm not getting?
  12:35pm tonyc:

It's what I got when I used google translate to translate a Japanese write-up of the show -- so, just a private joke! (Hey, Conrad!)
  12:37pm tonyc:

i.e., that's what they claimed I play....
  12:41pm JoshK:

Awesome show!
  12:41pm tonyc:

I think the Japanese gentlemen actually said I play "progressive and psychedelic folk" ... somehow "progressive" became "rhinoceros," and "folk" became "fork"
  12:42pm Carmichael:

I know of a band Rhinoceros with Billy Mundi. Did you ever play them? No psych fork, though ...
  12:42pm tonyc:

Thanks, JoshK!!
  12:43pm tonyc:

Carmichael: Never have played Rhinoceros ... but I probably should!
  12:47pm Brian in UK:

Hello. Satin Chickens if memory serves was an albums.
  12:56pm tonyc:

Tracks from the cassette on now, plus ones from the One Big Square Foot of Sod thing are also featured in my latest blogpost (along with Wifflefist tracks)
  1:12pm tonyc:

This Redolfi thing is one of the first CDs I ever bought, back in '88 -- I'm glad to see it hasn't rotted yet!
  1:16pm Jeremy Novak:

Loverly! BTW, has anyone had actually had a CD fall apart? I have only had it happen with CDRs, when the top layer peeled off....
  1:16pm Ike:

Ah! So I still like some 80s new age! This is not saccharine, so it works. Hmm, maybe I'll dig out that old Steve Roach triple-disc set and see if it also holds up.
  1:17pm Carmichael:

Pull out the Windham Hill, Ike!
  1:18pm tonyc:

Jeremy: I have had CDs, not just CD-Rs, fail on me. Maybe 5 or 6 over the years
  1:21pm Jeremy Novak:

Love Ingram Marshall...perhaps he rides the line between new age and minimalism?
  1:21pm Ike:

Woah, Carm, wooooah. Let's not put the hart before the course. One dubstep at a time. Or something.
  1:21pm tonyc:

Re creaky CDs: I'm not talking scratches, obviously -- in some cases the coating has literally melted.
  1:22pm Jeremy:

Not this peice, but later stuff like Fog Tropes
  1:24pm tonyc:

Jeremy: Yeah, that sounds like a good description of his later stuff. The problem with most New Age is not that it's New Age, just that it's bad.
  1:24pm Doug S.:

This (along with everything else) is beautiful.
  1:24pm Jeremy:

I assume this is spontaneous CD melting, not due to proximity to the stove?
  1:25pm Van in Dallas:

Hi Tony and everyone. Peeking in for a listen and to practice my math skills...haven't been here before I don't think.
  1:26pm tonyc:

Doug: Everything is beautiful? That sounds pretty new agey to me....
Jeremy: Yes, spontaneous combustion
Van: Greetings!!
  1:27pm Van in Dallas:

Wow, I did it AGAIN. Clicked the mothership's listen link and not GTDS. Grrrrr. That was some harsh stuff coming out of Diane's show!
  1:28pm Jeremy:

I can recommend Deuter's Celebration LP as actually good New Age, with flutes and open tunings and all.
  1:31pm Ike:

Don't Doug's playlists now have the misleading "Live Audio Streams" banner (leading to mothership stream) stripped out? So, some progress! I guess this isn't possible yet for Tony and Amanda though, thus Van's confusion.
  1:31pm Carmichael:

I've heard that early commercial CDs just wore out after some plays, as in the information evaporating away from the plastic. Never had it happen to me, though. I dump 'em all on my iPod anyway, so I seldom look at the physical product.
  1:32pm Carmichael:

Van, no one will EVER confuse Diane's show for Tony's. Not for long, anyway.
  1:34pm Van in Dallas:

For some reason this is bringing to my mind Clannad... Newgrange I think. lovely.

@Carmichael - Got that right!
  1:35pm tonyc:

I did fill in for Diane once, though, and tried to open the show with metal and such. Didn't get too far before switching styles...
  1:44pm tonyc:

Picked this Senthaclos up during my trip to Belgium back in March (tho they're French). Got so many records on that trip, I'm still making my way through them....
  2:00pm jon:

Been occupied (ha). Good show for today.
  2:02pm tonyc:

Thanks, Jon! Hope you didn't get pepper-sprayed....
  2:07pm tonyc:

Oddly, I sometimes catch myself unconsciously whistling this ELP tune when I'm walking.
  2:08pm Doug S.:

Ike, my playlists NEVER had the links for WFMU's various streams. So the absence of that info on my playlists is not progress. When Kenzo designed the playlist database system, he grandfathered in my original playlist page design (which predated the database). There is no way to remove the generic info atop Tony and Amanda's playlist pages. At least, right now there is no way to do it. Sorry for the continued confusion.
  2:10pm J J:

I didn't know these guys did the music for Final Fantasy.
  2:14pm Van in Dallas:

Not so much confusion for me, as lack of focus and attention ;)
  2:15pm Ike:

  2:22pm Doug S.:

Quick bit of self-promotion for upcoming Give the Drummer Radio programming:

Later this evening, at 6pm, I will devote an hour to the music of the dearly departed drummer Paul Motian.

Coming up on Friday, I will be doing Give the Drummer Some live on the stream from Pittsburgh, with Amanda Nazario collaborating on the show live from Studio A at WFMU in Jersey City. Listen in as we get completely confused by the 20-30 second delay between my audio feed and hers!
  2:24pm tonyc:

By the way, that long silence was part of the piece, not a drop-out.
  2:25pm Ricardo Montalban:

Whenever I hear these video arcade sounds, it reminds me of eating my lunch in at the arcade across the street from High School. A crappy burrito and Mt. Dew, or no lunch at all, because I blew my lunch money on an issue of Cream, National Lampoon or Heavy Metal magazine.
  2:40pm tonyc:

And the parsnip goes on....
  2:41pm Ricardo Montalban:

Dig that crazy beet.
  2:44pm J J:

I'm picturing myself doing this and I'm already feeling pretty good, a lot more energy.
  2:45pm tonyc:

I can never follow those kind of instructions. I get completely lost....
  2:47pm Ricardo Montalban:

Ezbaday People
  2:48pm jon:

Go Denny go!
  2:49pm Ricardo Montalban:

I'm a sucker for vocalists with an out-of-control vibrato style...
  2:54pm tonyc:

Ezba really brings the fuzz too....
  2:55pm tonyc:

Today's show will go around 8:00 minutes over, as this piece is longish. Hope you'll stick around....
  2:58pm tonyc:

If not, thanks for listening! This show will be rebroadcast next week, and I'll be back with a new show in two weeks. Doug's on at 6:00 ... and, of course, the stream keeps on bopping 24/7.
  3:00pm Ricardo Montalban:

thanks, Tony!
  3:01pm tonyc:

Thanks, RM, and everyone else -- see you in December!
  3:05pm Van in Dallas:

Enjoyed it, thanks
