Listener comments!

  8:47am Swami Rami:

The path to eternal joy is through meditation, peace, Give the Drummer Some and a several beers.
  8:50am Doug Schulkind:

Flip the order and get your priorities straight, Swami!
  8:52am Swami Rami Barmi:

My ashram back in old Kentucky will not approve. This is strictly between us O Lord of the Download.
  8:54am Doug Schulkind:

I love Fiddlin' John Carson's version of "My Ashram Back in Old Kentucky."
  8:57am Swami Rami Barmi Charmi:

The poor chap did so much fiddln' he was, how you say, excoriated with porcupine quills for three weeks.
  8:57am ndbob:

morning Doug, Swami, everyone!
  8:58am Swami Rami Barmi Charmi Smarmi:

May the light of this world fly from every orifice ndbob.
  8:59am Doug Schulkind:

Hey ndbob, glad you're here!
  8:59am Doug Schulkind:

That sounds painful, Swami.
  9:00am ndbob:

actually a little wintry here at last
  9:00am earwax:

Happy almost New Year's eve
  9:01am Swami Rami Barmi Charmi Smarmi:

Not when it is -30 in North Dakota, it is in the vernacular 'a breeze'.
  9:02am listener james from westwood:

2011: good year, w/ a few moments on which i'd like a do-over. on the whole, better than i could have expected. the gtds star cluster was a lovely part of that.
  9:02am Parq:

Annnd, they're off! Prospero año, all.
  9:02am Swami Rami Barmi Charmi Smarmi:

earwax, the most precious of our bodily excrements.
  9:03am ndbob:

lol ... it's often very windy here too - though it's been much warmer then normal - highs mid-20s to upper 30s
  9:03am listener james from westwood:

a ceremony in cerumen, swami.
  9:03am Doug Schulkind:

Greetings to you earwax. Nothing lovelier than your handsome mug showing up in these here comments, LJFW.
  9:04am Doug Schulkind:

Herr Parq is here, in real time. A blessing!
  9:04am earwax:

Doug plays the wax for all of our ears
  9:05am Swami Rami Barmi Charmi Smarmi Gorblimi:

Blessed James of the scrolls
  9:06am listener james from westwood:

week has gotten much better as it's transpired. touching base w. the stream and the station has been a real help.
  9:09am Doug Schulkind:

James, your support and cheer throughout the year has been a huge help to me. Ha!
  9:11am ndbob:

morning James!
  9:15am listener james from westwood:

good day ndbob! glad to hear late december's been a touch warmer than usual out there. any little bit helps when it comes to home heating.
  9:16am listener james from westwood:

doug, the whole gtdr project has helped me appreciate fmu even more. really is a miracle factory with something for everyone.
  9:17am Brian in UK:

Hello Doug and sensation seekers everywhere.
Just been reading Poe's poetry. There is a great line in Bridal Ballad 'Who is Happy Now' It could be the title of any one of these songs.
  9:18am ndbob:

fortunately my heat is included in the rent - presume that's pretty common around here
  9:20am Brian in UK:

TWAAAAAAAAAAAAANG. We is sophistcated over here.
LJfW, like 'miracle factory'.
  9:21am Doug Schulkind:

Some Meg Baird coming up later, Brian. Thanks 2 U.
  9:22am Parq:

For the record, 2011 was one of my worst years ever. Strangely, 1981 and 1991 were awful too. 2001 wasn't a nightmare, but lord, it wasn't good. If you're looking for me in 2021, I'll be hiding under the bed.
  9:23am ndbob:

Sorry Parq
  9:24am listener james from westwood:

howdy, brian. poe goes nicely with a season of long nights and chill air.
parq, i'll make sure there's a seat in the 2021-proof bunker when i call over there next!

No elephants but there is this.,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=1024&bih=654&wrapid=tlif132525533652310&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=15195071932637466614&sa=X&ei=t8r9Tp3DB86-8gPJ2uHKAQ&ved=0CE0Q8wIwAA#
  9:30am Doug Schulkind:

Hello Van!

David, is the stream coming in in mono? Pliz explain? Anyone notice anything odd?
  9:31am david:

no no. the audio equivalent of monoptic. would that be monaural? the speakers at my desk are so close together that i wouldn't notice if you were broadcasting in mono or stereo.
  9:32am Bashful Schulkind:

Oh, yes of course. You are answering the question I asked. I really should listen to myself more. Thanks David.
  9:35am Chicago Joel in NC:

Morning Sir Doug! Enjoying this Brazillian sunshine you are playing.
  9:36am Doug Schulkind:

Hey Joel, you Blue Devil you!
  9:37am Swami Rami:

Did you say myopic, Doug? Then, could I suggest it is the radio stations that play limited musical selections on rotation. The word for this is shite, like I said we is sophisticated over here.
  9:40am Doug Schulkind:

Swami, I am not worthy.
  9:42am Doug Schulkind:

Coming up at the end of this set is the fellow pictured in my Facebook announcement for this morning's show. This guy:

The man from Planet Lamma, up next.

a unique delivery this Damiao has
  9:56am Oscar Wilde:

There is only one worse than being talked about and that is not being talked about.
  9:58am Doug Schulkind:

I've always wanted to start a PR firm called Any Ink Is Good Ink, Inc.
  10:02am Van in Dallas:

Loving this
  10:04am Doug Schulkind:

There are several misspelling of song titles on the reissue of this Pheeroan ak Laff record, which led me to wonder if the release was legit. I emailed Pheeroan and he confirmed that it is. So REST EASY.
  10:08am Brian in UK:

Just bought some cartridges from a company called Stinkyink.
Got any Dollar Brand, mister?
  10:11am Doug Schulkind:

I've got a lorryful of Dollar Brand, Brian. None for today's effort, I'm afraid.
  10:11am glenn:

avast ye hearties! swab the poopdecks.
  10:12am Doug Schulkind:

Are you cracking wise about my beloved (cough, cough) Pittsburgh Pirates, Glenn?
  10:14am glenn:

there was nary the hint of wisdom about that crack.
  10:20am listener james from westwood:

this persip cut is working wonders.
  10:22am Doug Schulkind:

Let Give the Drummer Some be your Earpothecary, LJFW.
  10:24am Alf from Upstate:

Doesn't this have that cool Japanese alto player on it?
  10:27am Doug Schulkind:

You got it, Alf. The whole supporting cast behind Milford is from Japan: Kaoru Abe, alto, sopranino / Toshiyuki Tsuchitori, percussion / Mototeru Takagi, tenor sax / Toshinori Kondo, trumpet
  10:31am Doug Schulkind:

My daughter just poked her head in my studio and asked, "Are you intentionally playing annoying music?" How should I respond?
  10:34am Swami Aurami:

Aural beutification is in the ear of the beholder.
  10:34am ndbob:

Hmm.. one person's annoyance is another person's pleasure?
  10:36am Doug Schulkind:

I just said, "Yes."
  10:37am glenn:

coincidentally, my g.f. just asked the exact same question.
  10:39am dc pat:

just say "Somebody's got to do it..."
  10:46am Doug Schulkind:

You've got to stop dating my daughter, Glenn.
  10:48am dc pat:

man, some fantastic singing..
  10:48am jill:

nice song, Drummer. I especially like the title. Happy new year, fellow listeners!
  10:51am Doug Schulkind:

You WOULD like the title. The singer is Colleen Kinsella. A bunch more Big Blood is available via WFMU's Free Music Archive:
  10:54am Van in Dallas:

I liked that Big Blood. I was off looking them up.
  10:55am Doug Schulkind:

Alvarius B just sang a tune by Cerebrus Shoal, which is the band the preceded Big Blood.
  10:56am dc pat:

they're very nice people too. I contacted them once and was given a handful of amazing mp3s
  10:57am Doug Schulkind:

They are terrific. Very generous to WFMU and everyone, really.
  11:00am Carmichael:

Finally made it here. Hi Doug, and those who are auldly langing your synes.
  11:04am still b/p:

Laaate start, late good morning.
Colleen makes great art. A card she was giving to holiday craft fair visitors a couple of weeks ago is now on the fridge.
  11:04am A Phlebotomist Writes:

The first two numbers of this set do have a certain appeal.
  11:05am Doug Schulkind:

Always a pleasure, Carmichael. I am better for your presence. Now I'll pull out the really good shit.
  11:06am Brian in UK:

Hey Carmichael, it's soaking dog walking weather. Never rains in your neck of the woods!!
  11:06am Van in Dallas:

@still b/p - yeah I saw that Colleen does all the artwork for their albums during my looking them up a few moments ago.

@Doug - love this tune.
  11:08am Carmichael:

Rock me, Doug! Brian, my Spencer just came back from the clipper and is happy as a clam. Rolled in the carpet all night long.
  11:08am Doug Schulkind:

Hmmm, wonder why you dig'm, Phlebby. I guess you are A POSITIVE kind of person. (You would never B NEGATIVE.)
  11:11am Brian in UK:

Liking this, may I direct you to Jimmie Spheeris, brother of Penelope. He died early 80's but his work is of a similar kidney to Ms Bairds.
Ah Madagascar
  11:12am Van in Dallas:

I've heard her on Irene's show before (Meg). Rightly compared with Sandy Denny I think.
  11:13am A Phlebotomist Writes:

Careful, you are so sharp, you'll cut yourself.
  11:14am monica:

what a beautiful way to wind down the year, doug. this is the musical version of nova & noshes from russ & daughters with veuve cliquot.
  11:15am Carmichael:

I saw Jimmie Spheeris open a few times for Moody Blues back in the late 70s. Didn't realize he was dead. He seemed pretty ethereal/new age-y to me.
  11:15am Doug Schulkind:

Oh Monica, Russ & Daughters makes me hella homesick. Missing you, too.
  11:21am Doug Schulkind:

Like it never happened.
  11:23am Brian in UK:

Yea Carmichael, killed on his motorbike by a drunken driver. His MD is Beck's dad. The way Meg Baird starts a line sounds very similar to my ears especially seeing her live.
  11:28am Doug Schulkind:

One more (killer) African track coming, then a massive flow of manly soul to finish out the show. You do NOT want to miss it.
  11:29am glenn:

i heard about russ and daughters from calvin trillin, who i adore. has anybody ever been to arthur bryant's in k.c., which calvin says is the best restaurant in the world?
  11:33am Doug Schulkind:

Calvin Trillin wrote a wonderful New Yorker piece about Russ & Daughters and the search for the last bialy in NYC.
  11:37am Doug Schulkind:

Is this song really happening, or have I ascended to some magnificent cloud in the funkisphere?
  11:37am monica:

what kind of cuisine is it, glenn? was just reading a round-up of nyc "best ofs" restaurants (not that i ever go) but if i never hear "farm-to-table" or "nose-to-tail"one more time. it's the new asian-fusion...
  11:39am Carmichael:

I saw Russ & Daughters on Tony Bourdain's show a few months back. Very interesting.
  11:40am glenn:

arthur bryant's is straight up barbecue.
  11:40am glenn:
  11:44am monica:

ha! glenn, they've got old calvin on their homepage as a celeb fan.... carmichael, i think there's a doc about Russ & Daughters coming out.
  11:46am glenn:

oh yeah. i missed that.
  11:49am david:

ohhhh. charles! anyone going to see lee fields on new years eve?
  11:49am Brian in UK:

Ah Goldwax. Is this Wiggins related to the Tony! Toni! Tone! Wiggineses oh oracle? Sounds like a bunch of hobbits.
  11:55am Brian in UK:

What's coming up in the second half of the show, Doug?
  11:56am Carmichael:

  11:57am Doug Schulkind:

That made me chuckle, Brian. In a perfect world, I would have a six -hour show and get paid cash money to do so. (Oh God, let it be so.)
  11:59am listener james from westwood:

i'm listener james from westwood, and i approve that message
  11:59am glenn:

in an even perfecter world, we would get paid cash money AND arthur bryant's bbq to listen to you for six hours.
  11:59am still b/p:

Great closing set, great portion of show that I caught.
Months ago, I was named this show's Minister in
Charge of Acrominization, so after today's reported father/daughter exchange it's my duty to note that, Doug is the iPAM device.
  12:01pm listener james from westwood:

bbq + gtds + $ = WIN.
a sweet and soulful sendoff to 2011. thanks for everything this year, doug. best wishes to all for 2012!
  12:01pm ndbob:

excellent show of course Doug... and Happy New Year everyone!
  12:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Still glad you're on board, still b/p

And iPAM stands for...
  12:02pm Carmichael:

Thanks Doug. Happy happy to everyone in 2012.
  12:02pm Van in Dallas:

Thanks for the show Doug!
  12:03pm Brian in UK:

Despite the fuckin' Olympics, I hope that everyone has a good New Year and maintains good health. You don't miss your water 'till your well runs dry.
  12:03pm Doug Schulkind:

My pleasure, Van & EVERYONE!
  12:03pm trish:

It's never too late in a show to tune in.
Happy New Year 2012.
  12:04pm Doug Schulkind:

Oh Trish! Have a happy not crappy 2012!
  12:05pm Brian in UK:

Turkey sandwich anyone. Just kidding.
  12:05pm still b/p:

I Play Annoying Music...only to very specific household ears, though. Perfect Friday music in these 'uns here.
  12:05pm listener james from westwood:

brian, i'd trade you the london olympics for the 2012 presidential race in a hummingbird's heartbeat.
  12:06pm glenn:

they're both losing propositions for all involved.
  12:06pm trish:

Here's to a fine one all around!
  12:07pm Brian in UK:

Well you gotta point there James. How long will we be paying for it though?
  12:07pm Doug Schulkind:

Love and beer all 'round!
  12:09pm Doug Schulkind:

iPAM® is now a registered trademark. Thanks still b/p!
