Listener comments!

  3:02pm Caryn:

Let the Monkathon commence!
  3:03pm G:

authentic 45 skip, right there!
  3:03pm Mike East:

I'm ready!
  3:03pm 12539:

Wait a minute - is this 45 rpm record being played at 45 rpm?
  3:04pm 37:

me too!
  3:04pm G:

innovative, huh, 12539?
  3:04pm 37:

ready that is
  3:04pm 12539:

O I forgot - it always starts at the right speed.
  3:05pm Parq:

KG lulls the unsuspecting listener into a false sense of security.
  3:06pm kat330:

Hey, cool ones!
  3:06pm Cecile:

hey cool kat
  3:07pm kat330:

Monk up, listeners! Cecile, did you submit?
  3:08pm Cecile:

If Kurt is doing this for the other ones, I might do something then.
  3:13pm DJ KG:

there will be other friday the 13th calls to action, yes, with other rules.
hi everyone!
  3:13pm kat330:

Just got the mail and our straggler Mouse pledge premium arrived. Poring over the Wolfy map of the state of New Jersey.
  3:14pm kat330:

@DJ KG: Appropriate time stamps on our posts.
  3:15pm DJ KG:

  3:15pm kat330:

3: "13"
  3:16pm bruceleh:

Steve Fuckin' Lacy.
Just sayin'
  3:16pm Parq:

KG, your last post and her following post were time-stamped 3:13, as in Friday The. Hang in there with us, son, we like to keep you on your toes.
  3:18pm DJ KG:

kat'n'parq - ah!

brucelab - yah!
  3:18pm kat330:

He's multitasking, so I can understand.
  3:18pm still b/p:

KG has thirteen toes?
  3:19pm 37:

i'm so confused, but amused
  3:20pm kat330:

'Spose it could be interpreted: [It is] appropriate [that] time stamps on our posts.
  3:20pm Parq:

The cool thing is, at 4:13, we can do it all again!
  3:21pm kat330:

Monk up, 37! Have you run into #6 lately?
  3:22pm kat330:

More familiar speed here.
  3:24pm kat330:

Time stamps and time signatures...but Tom Waits for no one.
  3:24pm Orson:

We will sell no Waits, before it's Tom.
  3:25pm kat330:

@Parq: If we all try to, doubt if many will get through.
  3:26pm G:

Have it at 331/3? Scatter plays throughout the show at 16, 45, and 78. Etc. :-P
  3:27pm 12539:

  3:28pm G:

  3:28pm kat330:

  3:28pm stupendo:

Ciao! I am "live in Italy" too. I can listen to 3 hours of this nessun problema (right up till midnight here). Thank you Kurt!
  3:29pm kat330:

oooh, he missed the little run down.
  3:30pm still b/p:

So that April 13th occurrence means tax day is a Sunday, so we can procrastinate 'til Monday.
  3:30pm kat330:

Think it was a triplet Monk does, but I never took music theory.
  3:32pm kat330:

Anyone else notice that in the Peterson picking?
  3:34pm 12539:

With a name like Grg Ptrsn, abridgement is to be expected.
  3:36pm na:

monk vs mothra
  3:37pm kat330:

You have a good point, 12539.
  3:39pm Carmichael:

Hiya DJKG and hepcat listeners. I am without a doubt the loneliest monk.
  3:43pm Andy's Agent:

Does Andy get a licensing fee or something on this Monk show? Because I have 15% coming.
  3:43pm kat330:

Am I hearing strains of "Somewhere" in this?
  3:43pm kat330:

Hi, Car ar ar!
  3:44pm kat330:

"there's a place for us" IOW.
  3:54pm rutherfordicus:

  3:55pm kat330:

I like the scatting alongside it.
  3:56pm kat330:

Guess I'll stifle myself for a while.
  3:56pm still b/p:

If we get some kind of recincarnation/do-over, and with choices, I'd think about learning to play vibes.
  3:57pm still b/p:

Subtract one 'c'.
  3:57pm DJ KG:

kat - keep talking!
b/p - it's not too late!
  3:58pm Cecile:

who's that guy named Steve who's a great vibe player? Just heard about him recently, but he's been aruond for years.
  4:01pm Carmichael:

I'm studying contract law and keeping a steady finger drumbeat.
  4:02pm Caryn:

Vibes would be nice. I've played metallophone in an orchestra, but I think vibes are cooler.
  4:04pm Interwebs:

All your consumer base are belong to us.
  4:05pm Cecile:

I will provide that information for you on April 31, 2012.
  4:05pm das:

I'd like to hear Friday the 13th right about now
  4:06pm Marmalade Kitty:

what kind of creep collects that kind of information?? Super Creep
  4:07pm Marmalade Kitty:

I heard a version of TMonks Pannonica
  4:09pm Harry Manfredini:

Yeah, play some Friday the 13th!
  4:12pm Marmalade Kitty:

anyone working in advertising marketing, go kill yourself!
  4:12pm kat330:

@Kurt: That run/triplet bit is a major reason why I didn't submit. It's a bitch on an acoustic classical guitar or a melodica. But if I can just skip it...maybe....
  4:14pm hamburger:

it's a bitch on the kazoo too
  4:14pm Mike East:

Anybody know someone with a stock of Lyon & Healy harp rods in the Virginia/Kentucky area?
  4:15pm 37:

that anthony coleman version was awesome!
  4:15pm kat330:

What about the Jew's harp? Any versions Ken could dredge up?
  4:16pm Mike East:

oh man, I wish it was a jews harp. That would make life so much easier.
  4:16pm kat330:

Love it!
  4:17pm Carmichael:

I bet a yodelling version exists. That triplet run would sound cool!
  4:17pm kat330:

Imagine it would be hardest of all on the saw.
  4:18pm Caryn:

@kat: hey, it's your version, you can skip it if you want!
On a side note, I went to a jazz high school. Didn't hear or play "Friday the 13th" there once, which I was kicking myself about when the whole Monkathon was announced. But we did get our math lessons occasionally interrupted by a guy with an alto sax asking us to "name that tune", which was nice.
  4:19pm grg:

just to clarify. . . i left out the little descending run in my version in order to preserve the ringing of the preceding notes, not because of its bitchiness to play (though i won't say it's easy, either.)
  4:19pm kat330:

Moi, Caryn! Jazz HS? Sweet.
  4:20pm kat330:

But I couldn't skip it. I'm a stickler A-type. But I might sing it, speak of the McFerrin devil.
  4:20pm Cecile:

grg, I missed it, but will catch it on archives.
  4:21pm kat330:

grg: Yes, I can see that as valid because it was sounding muddied when I attempted at the tempo I heard online. Not criticizing, just noting.
  4:22pm Caryn:

Yeah, kat. They taught all kinds of music, but a lot of emphasis was placed on jazz, including musical improv, and tests where we'd have to listen to jazz tracks and name the time signature, the instruments and the original tune they were riffing on.
  4:22pm ranjit:

I'd never heard Friday the 13th before. By the first break, it was my favorite song ever. Before the second break, I was playing along on my toy plastic Tonette. I hope and expect to despise this song before 6pm.
  4:23pm Marmalade Kitty:

You can't beat a little Thelonious Monk
  4:24pm kat330:

Monks have to beat themselves. (Python ref.)
  4:26pm kat330:

@Car, backing up: Yodeling a triplet? Eeesh, I think you might throw a tonsil out trying that.
  4:27pm DJ KG:

ranjit: YAY!

plus loving having some guitar geek talk going on here. wish i was a good enough guitarist to play it myself.
  4:32pm Carmichael:

I don't know how people can yodel at all. Sounds like their windpipe is about to burst. Listen to a great yodeler, and you can hear the effortless octave changing. I thought doing a Monk song would be a bizarre, Dokaka-like experience to hear.
  4:33pm Caryn:

I wonder if there's a bagpipe version?
  4:34pm DJ KG:

one-time fmu dj bart plantenga (the first real live wfmu dj i ever met!) wrote a great book on yodelling called "yodel-ah-hee-hoo" of course.
  4:34pm kat330:

I can manage a smidgeon of yodeling. Has to be exactly in the right range, and it's really minimal. Now my uncle, he was great at it.
  4:36pm kat330:

The Thirsty Ear label could use some Ear Juice.
  4:37pm Slimslacks:

Wow being under the weather is fun!
  4:39pm kat330:

@Parq: I notice no one got a 4:13 time stamp. I'd forgotten all about it.
  4:43pm Cecile:

I am so tickled that we get to hear some good Steve Lacy on here.
  4:45pm Cecile:

not that Steve Lacy did anything bad, but he was such a great interpreter of Monk.
  4:47pm DJ KG:

cecile, absolutes! the #1
  4:48pm kat330:

@caryn: Did Jamey Aebersold ever come to your jazz HS?
  4:49pm Cecile:

someone should have a Steve Lacy birthday celebration - July 23.
  4:51pm Caryn:

@kat: nope, at least not during my time. We had close ties with the local jazz festival and big band and got most outside education through them. But most education was by our own teachers, of course.
  5:03pm Cecile:

Cortex Bomb.
Is that you BSI?
  5:06pm jonathan:

hell yeah, horsey!!! thanks Kurt!
  5:06pm Cecile:

That's so amazing you got so many listener submissions!
  5:07pm rutherfordicus:

  5:08pm ranjit:

i agree with rutherfordicus.
  5:08pm Mark in VT:

Great show. also brings back memories of when Kenny G was on the air at wfmu.
  5:08pm Caryn:

@KG; are you going to playing the Microscopic Septet version of "Friday the 13th"?
  5:09pm Caryn:

Well, my brain is on the fritz. You already played it. The versions are melding together, man!
  5:10pm DJ KG:

kenny g = radio hero
  5:12pm Carmichael:

Well now, this woke me out of my legalese-induced slumber!
  5:14pm ranjit:

I'd like to hear a version of Friday the 13th by MEREDITH Monk. Someone make it happen, please.
  5:15pm hamburger:

when I go to sleep all I'm gonna hear is bababa doobadoo boop, badooba dooba doo boop
  5:16pm Mark in VT:

I need to miss some of this because I need to go out and bring the trash bins back inside from it being garbage day I hope satan was able to get all the bones he wanted from the garbage. Since he wants our bones.
  5:16pm Cecile:

how is that different than any other night? :D
  5:19pm kat330:

What'd I miss, shoot. Phone call I had to take...
  5:20pm Carmichael:

This sounds like Charlie Brown's teacher.
  5:21pm Caryn:

I believe you missed a version of "Friday the 13th", kat330.
  5:21pm kat330:

No Pride, neigh on the Horsey, too...will catch it on archive..
  5:22pm Caryn:

I'd actually like to hear a version by Charlie Brown's teacher.
  5:22pm DJ KG:

but coming up next is a version of monk's "friday the 13th"
  5:23pm Caryn:

This is the WFMU equivalent of the Python's "Mary, Queen of Scots" radio show.
  5:25pm Caryn:

Oh look, appearance 3 by Lacy & appearance 2 by Bennink! Monk-obsessed, they are.
  5:26pm northguineahills:

Quite a line up on this one
  5:26pm DJ KG:

how many people would do versions of 'mary queen of scots'for me?
  5:26pm DJ KG:

caryn, nice eye.
  5:26pm Parq:

I like this one, from Regeneration. The wobbly 'bone sounds a bit like it's from a Max Fleischer cartoon.
  5:27pm northguineahills:

@ranjit: I'd be so down to hear a Meridith Monk version!
  5:27pm Curtis [Boston]:

Charlie Brown's Teacher
  5:27pm kat330:

I'd like to hear Lisa's version.
  5:29pm Caryn:

BTW, apologies for the grammatical error. That should obviously be: Pythons'.
And that bit in the middle sounded like a piece of "Why Don't You Do Right"...
  5:29pm Slimslacks:

  5:31pm Caryn:

Oh, Slimslacks, we all seem to be enjoying it, not fearing it.
  5:32pm DJ KG:

2 appearances by roswell rudd as well, tho he didn't get on the playlist the first time.
  5:33pm kat330:

Did you all get snow yet in Jersey? We had our first of the season yesterday here in the Louisville area.
  5:34pm Slimslacks:

@ Caryn: Totally! The only thing I fear is an even better version than the one before.
  5:36pm Louis Cypher:

Was Friday the 13th on the Hal Wilner thing? Late to the show.
  5:37pm DJ KG:

no snow; bobby mcferring / bob dorough
  5:37pm Mark in VT:

Did anyone do a kazoo version? Or a beat box version?
  5:38pm Carmichael:

A barking dog version would be nice.
  5:40pm kat330:

A chipMONK version.
  5:41pm Caryn:

Then a koto version to bring it home.
  5:42pm DJ KG:

omg, i would love to hear it on koto
  5:43pm Cecile:

Mal Waldron - another great interpreter.
Ah...missed Roswell Rudd.
  5:43pm kat330:

Caryn, Juha gave me a kantele one of my birthdays. It is custom-made and beautiful, but this dog was too old to learn such new tricks.
  5:43pm Carmichael:

A marching band performing this at haltime would also be a treat.
  5:43pm Caryn:

I was gonna say that a shakuhachi version would be impossible, due to the limited notes available, but I suspect some of the masters would be able to manipulate the instrument enough to play "Friday the 13th".
  5:45pm Carmichael:

add an f in there.
  5:45pm Caryn:

Oh, you're never too old, kat! Also, they've proven scientifically that old dogs learn new tricks just fine. So go for it! He should get you lessons on some future birthday... You hear me, J.T.?
  5:47pm kat330:

J.T. isn't home yet. I really couldn't muster the enthusiasm, I'm afraid. This was probably a decade ago now, but it's a lovely piece of sculpture for the room.
  5:47pm DJ KG:

steve lacy appearance #4!
  5:47pm Patti Page Dog Version:

How much Kurt plays Friday (that's the thirteenth). Arf arf! The one with the beboppy wail...
  5:48pm Marmalade Kitty:

surely no one listening to the show will ever forget Monks Friday 13th.. This by Mal Waldron is may be my favourite version tonight
  5:48pm Caryn:

Oh well, it'll be talking point when you have people over. "What's that thing?" "Oh, it's a kantele." "A what?" etc.
  5:48pm ranjit:

Kurt, please keep soliciting and collecting weird listener versions even after tonight. Maybe you can post them all on the web.
  5:48pm Mark in VT:

I have a cat piano app on my iphone and I could not resist to do one with it just now.
  5:50pm kat330:

Frankly, I doubt there are any kantele players within reasonable driving distance to teach me. I'm self-taught on guitar and, mostly, on piano, too.
  5:51pm kat330:

This has been, well, supernatural, Kurt! Thanks 13 times over!
  5:51pm Caryn:

Yay, Mark! Well, that's one track for next week's show ready, KG! Just fill the rest with your own varied selections.
  5:52pm Mark in VT:

and also have a church pipe organ app I just did it on. the theremin app did not work so well.
  5:52pm 37:

  5:52pm Caryn:

20 versions so far...
  5:52pm DJ KG:

mark, send it in! right now!
  5:53pm Marmalade Kitty:

Too easy to finish with Monks Friday 13th..?
  5:53pm 12539:

Paraskevidekatriaphilia! Thanks, Kurt.
  5:54pm DJ KG:

tooooooooooooooooooo easy.
  5:55pm Cecile:

you got the cat piano version yet, Kurt?
  5:55pm Marmalade Kitty:

thats easy for you to say, 12539!
  5:55pm Caryn:

I wonder if playing Monk's version backwards or at a different speed would also be too easy?
  5:55pm Mark in VT:

I didn't record anything I just opened the apps and played the thing. I guess I could record it. But anyone can if they download those apps. The theremin one I think would prove challenging. The theremin app is fun.
  5:55pm DJ KG:

mark's? no! 4.5 minutes left in the show
  5:56pm Cecile:

I think I knew someone from the UP with that last name. :D
  5:56pm Caryn:

Last will be KG's own version...?
  5:56pm Cecile:

mark, do it. Just a snippet.
  5:57pm DJ KG:

last will be petula clark, silly.
  5:58pm Cecile:

she did a version of Friday the 13th?
  5:58pm Caryn:

  5:59pm Cecile:

someone should cut this up so it sounds like Friday the 13th.
  5:59pm kat330:

G'night all! Gotta go downtown now.
  5:59pm Caryn:

KG has cut up the Petula Clark into notes, which he has then reorganised into "Friday the 13th"? Naah... wishful thinking, that.
  6:00pm Carmichael:

Thanks for the 1 song, Kurt.
  6:00pm Caryn:

Great minds think alike, Cecile!
  6:01pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The next Friday the 13th is in April....three months from now.
Avatar 11:01pm ranjit:

Can we do this again on June 13, 2014? That's just about my birthday.
