Listener comments!

  9:20am Scott:

morning, folks.
  9:21am Andrew:

Morning - Scott - you are the first woofmoo show I've got to at my new desk in my new job. Auspicious :)
  9:22am Cheri Pi:

Very very nice!!!!
  9:25am Scott:

Very happy for that, Andrew. Auspicious indeed. Hi, Cheri Pi!!
  9:26am bruceleh:

What's with the rock'n'roll?
  9:29am Scott:

Am I confusing you?
  9:33am bruceleh:

Not confusing me, but I've become a crusty curmudgeon, and I just don't understand how people my age (50+) still dig rock'n'roll. Its creative juices were long gone by the late '70s. And other than for nostalgia, what's the point of listening to teenage angst at this age? But then again I don't understand why people still read super hero comics, read science fiction or even watch television any more.
Yes, I've been accused of being an intellectual elitist, but like, the Old Codger, I know what I like!
Think I'm gonna go listen to a Dave Mandl archive.
  9:35am Andrew:

wow - that is curmudgeonly!
  9:39am jeff-m:

big bunch who fucking cares right back at ya
  9:41am Pat in Philadelphia:

Boy I'm glad that bummer bruceleh left. That Oh Sees split with Total Control is great! But what do I know I'm only 30.
  9:42am ?:

People dig rock and roll because they have loins!
  9:42am Scott:

oops, that was me.
  9:44am Scott:

Anyway, its a fair point. But even Dave Mandl plays rock and roll sometimes!
  9:44am Scott:

It is freeform radio after all.
  9:45am Andrew:

I confess - I come to Scott for the long jazz tracks also :)
  9:47am coelacanth:

i'm up there & i think my passion for "rock & roll" has not diminished in the least.And my passion in general...Guess i still have loins! . . AND "Old Codger's"alter ego (or,one of them) plays rock & roll occasionally on his show.
  9:49am AbeSomething:

The Boogie!! Yes! That old timer is missing out.
  9:50am Pat in Philadelphia:

What is this?! More of the devil's music!
“It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.” —Ecclesiastes 7:5
  9:50am T-Zero:

Heh, since when does music have an expiration date?
  9:51am Brian in UK:

Bruceleh do not beat yourself up. It is a musical sound that we feel the need to call this or that. I have been listening to POP music for fifty years and done well it still sounds great. The fact that those making it could be our grandchildren is neither here nor there.
  9:51am T-Zero:

Indeed! Brian
  9:52am coelacanth:

YES. ps- Thank you Scott! I'll be passing through the music all day but may not have a chance to thank you later.
  9:53am Detroit Mac:

Sounds like a slow version of the Boogie Raves Savoy Brown did at the Grande Ballroom (Detroit) back in the 60s...
  9:54am Brian in UK:

Hey T-Zero .Day early?

Ecclesiastes 1 'All is Vanity'
  9:55am Pat in Philadelphia:

The ICA here in Philadelphia had a show wherein four different bands all did versions of Sister Ray. It was fun but exhausting.
  9:55am Scott:

I do not NOT play no rock 'n' roll. :)
  9:57am Cheri Pi:

Endless Boogie are the jam band for me; besides the Jam.
  9:58am T-Zero:

After a week of sleeping due to the flu, haven't felt the need yet this morning to drift off, Brian. :-)
  10:02am nyc in phl:

I wish Endless Boogie actually was endless.
  10:07am AbeSomething:

I am so happy this jam is still going. I am enjoying it immensely!
  10:08am Scott:

  10:11am Scott:

  10:13am bruceleh:

And why do they have to play it so loud? :P
  10:14am Cheri Pi:

I keep hearing little bursts of Marquee Moon here and there too. Nice.
  10:15am Scott:

You're an inspiration bruceleh! :)
  10:16am Cheri Pi:

Sold out @ boo-hooray-hope they make more for plebians.
  10:17am nyc:

The regular edition EB LP is still available (though at $30 it's still stupid expensive).
  10:19am bruceleh:

Don't get me wrong, I do loves my pop & rock. But highly contextual, like when Monica blasts some juicy 60-70s pop goodness, and what I do still enjoy listening to is WEIRD or highly ironic pop & rock. For example, Residents Buster & Glen/Duck Stab, Massacre Killing Time, Richard Cheese, Kevin Blechdom. That sort of thing. But rock for rock's sake... and don't get me started on the those death metal vocals - I'd rather listen to Skin Graft or Diamand Galas screaming than that!
Grow up already!!! ;)
  10:19am bruceleh:

WFMU, were the shunned shine!
  10:22am Scott:

Haha! I bet I can turn you.
  10:27am Brian in UK:

Harsh vocals are dubious.
  10:27am bruceleh:

Listening to Nancarrow and Afro-Cuban spoiled me on rhythmic complexity. If I want simple rock'n'roll rhythms, I'll take the real thing and have a good fuck.
I'm having too much fun with this!
  10:29am Cheri Pi:

I'll pay $30 for Endless Boogie- a 20 minute Jam is only .666 cents a minute.
  10:29am sudo:

So is there a pool of rock-exorcised pus somewhere in the studio now?
  10:29am Brian in UK:

Quick get over to Doug's stream there's plenty of SEX there.
  10:30am Cheri Pi:

Sweet velvet hammer BUK- you're right! They have Sex on the other stream.
  10:31am Scott:

Focus, people, focus!
  10:32am Brian in UK:

Sorry, Scott. Not trying to undermine. OOOOPS
  10:33am Pat in Philadelphia:

Magik Markers! Keep the hits coming Scott!
  10:33am Cheri Pi:

Play US some Sex Scott.
  10:33am Pat in Philadelphia:

I mean that sincerely by the way.
  10:33am Scott:

Haha Brian, no not at all. I'm still trying to figure out how to listen to Doug's show AND do a show at the same time.
  10:35am Scott:

I just fucked the sky goddammit!
  10:36am Cheri Pi:

Oh My! [waves lace fan]
  10:36am bruceleh:

But I ain't going anywhere! Coz it's free-from, and I'm hoping that Scott will close with Schlockhausen's 'Improvisation for Steam Radiator and Electric Zither'
  10:37am Scott:

All cued up.
  10:38am Brian in UK:

Scott, saw Meg Baird this week. Interesting voice, no presence in the sense of talking to the audience.
  10:41am NB:

According to Wikipedia, "Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella" is primarily a Nurse with Wound album
  10:46am Dead Corporate Eyes:

I am pleased to join you all now. Hell, I'm tickled.
  10:46am Dead Corporate Eyes:

I see Scott has been busy this morning especially around 10:35.
  10:53am Eric The Half Bee:

I'm cold.
  11:07am Hugo:

Looks like the day for drawn-out exercises in guitar overkill. One might top it up with further Japanese freak-outs. Rallizes Denudes? Fushitsusha? The longest piece I have with the former clocks in at 43 minutes whereas the longest from the latter is slightly in excess of 6 hours. Might create a problem even for a free-form station. Mind you, this Can piece is a thing of wonderment.
  11:12am NB:

Or Humble Pie Rockin the Fillmore!!
  11:12am bruceleh:

Scott, I knew you'd come across in the end!
  11:13am Eric The Half Bee:

I have a sudden desire to hear Lester Bowie and eat black olives
  11:27am Scott:

Haha Bruceleh, you win!
  11:30am pgw in mntclr:

that Marion Brown album was my Moby Dick for a while, until i got drunk and bid an absurd amount of money on ebay to get it.
  11:31am Dead Corporate Eyes:

praise alcohol's inhibition-smashing properties!
  11:34am AbeSomething:

Secured a copy of the Boogie record, huzzah! Thanks for making me aware of it, Scott.
  11:35am Scott:

Awesome. Endless hours of Boogie are yours!
  11:36am The Old Curmudgeon:

Playing Black Saint, Soul Note, India Navigation and HatHut LPs like they're going out of style!
  11:36am Doug Schulkind:

I'm here for the freakin rawk. Go Scott go!
  11:36am northguineahills:

perfect waking up music....
  11:38am T-Zero:

How close is Bash Bish to Connecticut?
  11:46am Brick Teeth:

I love this track http://alteredzones.com/posts/1394/devin-gary-ross-4-corners/
  12:00pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

c ya Scott. I have enjoyed my time with you today.
  12:03pm Scott:

Bye folks, thanks for hanging out today!
  11:23pm jcy:
