Listener comments!

  8:01pm Dave:

  8:02pm Domenic:

Really great to hear a show DJed by Bethany back on WFMU or anywhere for that matter
  8:07pm 12539:

What is that familiar bed music?
  8:10pm bethany:

That bed is Tom Watis! A little loop I looped from Nighthaws at the Diner
  8:12pm J4ff:

Drinking Laphroaig and listening. Brilliant cello piece. This is my new Monday destination.
  8:13pm 12539:

  8:21pm Scotty:

Laphroaig. Nice. Not as peaty as Ardbeg.
  8:23pm bethany:

Laphroaig and Ardbeg. Nice. Not as biscuity as Tallisker.
  8:26pm Ross:

Hmm ... Schoenfield ... Schoenberg ... you sent me rifling through my LPs and I found A Steven Schoenberg LP recorded live in '82 at Amherst College (Buckley Recital Hall) that I quite enjoy. Neil Peart of Rush drinks only MacAllen, which is excellent.
  8:27pm glenn:

scotch whiskey. not as good as irish whiskey. :)
  8:27pm Hawk:

Of course, Templeton Rye from Iowa surpasses all of the above.
  8:29pm Serum of Messina:

Templeteon Rye is good name for a fair father in law, but not much of a drink
  8:29pm glenn:

crown royal.
  8:31pm bethany:

You guys are making me thirsty. None for me until 9:05pm
  8:32pm Darrell:

Boone's Farm!
  8:33pm Serum of Messina:

Driskiel Smitty!
  8:33pm Flowbee:

Charles Ives would be nice.
  8:35pm bethany:

Flowbee. You read my mind. This is Ives. Does this mean I'm too predictable? That's something I haven't heard before (!)
  8:37pm Flowbee:

Calcium Light Night! Thanks, Bethany. Really enjoying the diversion from the standard FMU fare (whatever that is!). I find myself expecting sheep noises super-imposed, or some such insanity at any moment. Not predictable at all, unless you play Foghat next, or something.
  8:40pm Josh:

Bethany, great show.. I have played the Shostakovich preludes/fugues and love them... some of my favorite music to be sure.. is yours going to be a regular show on FMU? I hope so!
  8:40pm bethany:

Well, up next is a musique concrete piece by the performer of the Ives that we're hearing now. It sounds a little different than this. But this show centers around what (I suppose) is called classical...
  8:46pm J4ff:

Whoa. This is by the pianist who just played the Ives?? I don't believe it.
  8:49pm Becky in SoCal:

I like this show!
  8:51pm bethany:

@J4ff: Blows my mind, too. I definitely need to track Richard Trythall down.
  8:54pm allilla:

This sounds a bit like the music from Six Feet Under - did they steal it??
  8:56pm 12539:

My one complaint is that this show is far too short.
  8:59pm bethany:

Josh: yes, a weekly fixture on Monday nights from 8-9pm. I'm away next week, but tune back in January 2nd!
