A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

  9:06am dale:

morning trouble. thought i recognized rita's voice. sadly all we ever got to hear was that james bond theme from her.

Aouuu - that is a wonderful and simple picture

woah this track is awesome already

Hello Trouble. I have been laughing at the radio today. This ESG cover is fantastic!
  9:25am pierre:

ça va bien, merci.
imagine, sunshine in Paris, i'm at my place gently working, and listening to thebest radio in the world, so everyything's rather cool right now.

red headed woodpecker - one!
my red bellied woodpecker gave me look this morning because the suet cakes and holders keep disappearing overnight. i've walked all over my yard and can't find the little metal cages.

Good morning/afternoon Trouble & everybody!!

morning all, mary delaney is a favorite of mine, thanks trouble, happy weirdly-warm day to all inhabitants of the region
  9:44am Andrew Waterloo:

Good morning everyone
  9:45am Marmalade Kitty:

Pierre, yes I was thinking about taking the EuroStar to paris and maybe travelling around a bit.. dans le train! :D
  9:46am Magda:

Good morning!!!

did you read paper garden moose? i am reading it now, very intriguing story. she started making art when she was 72 years old!

howdy do andrew and magda!
  9:47am Dave B:

  9:48am moose:

oh my my : )
no i didn't know there was a book, will look for
  9:48am Magda:

Have you officially recovered from the post marathon hang over?
  9:48am Magda:

Good day to you Dave B!
  9:51am domenic and Pecky the Rooster:

good morning everyone
  9:51am BSI:

What it is!
  9:52am pierre:

I love "la mer", I'm collecting different versions of this song. As well as "pop corn" and "ghostriders in the sky"

@M kitty: if you do give me a shout, we could have a FMU meeting^^
  9:55am Dave B:

hey hey Magda. Hope you're enjoying the day so far.

Pierre - let me know if you want some of the Popcorn I have... Currently about 97 or so versions.
  9:57am Cecile:

imperial teen! wow.
Is this a reish or did they re-form?
  9:57am Ralphine:

No need to have any version of La Mer other than Trenet's.
  9:57am Dave B:

And Trouble - thanks for the vino in the blinky cat cup during week 2 of marathon duties!
  9:58am Jennique:

Good morning Trouble and company. This morning I rode my bike to work and spotted a green parrot down by the river. Seemed to be in his element at last.
  9:59am Marmalade Kitty:

Thanks Pierre! That'd be cool :)
  10:00am pierre:

@ Dave B : surely ! I only have 81 versions, which is low compare to your collection. ^^
  10:01am pierre:

@ Ralphine: some versions really destroy the original with no respect whatsoever.
  10:01am BSI:

Nice. I can swear I had this exact bird record. I used a sample from it about 25 years ago, where the narrator says one bird "sounds like a robin with a sore throat..." Same voice.
  10:01am Cecile:

If you have something about someone doing wrong to someone else and that someone else not taking it any more, that would be great.
  10:02am Cecile:

I have to get back on my quest for chicken themed songs.
  10:02am jamesie:

Finally, the trappings of life fall away, my car, job... I sit at my kitchen table sipping hot sweet tea listening to Trouble. Bliss.
  10:03am Cecile:

soba and sardines sounds killer.
  10:03am Magda:

@Cecile Check out Rex's playlist from either the 2010 marathon or the 2011 Marathon. He had a whole premium about chicken!
  10:04am Parq:

My sardines aren't fresh; they're just witty.
  10:04am Magda:

@ Dave B - The day is good. Everything is booked for Boston at the end of April. And my boss is out for the day. Woot!
  10:04am Cecile:

talk to the ladies at the Amazon feminist bookstore in Minneapolis - they managed to keep their name, I am sure they will have hints.
  10:04am Adrian in London:

Huh? Eh? Wha'? Did your clocks go back or something? I've missed an hour.
  10:04am Cecile:

magda, thanks!
  10:05am tim from champaign:

Whoa...to go along with the stephen wright and the shortest lady song, my co-worker across from me just said "hee hee hee midgets" out of nowhere. I'm confident she's not listening to the show.
  10:05am Cecile:

Rag and Bone in Minneapolis is no longer in business.
Dickens referred to used bookstore as the rag and bone trade.
  10:05am Cecile:

Adrian, yes.
  10:06am suzy:

hi from berlin... love my 3pm trouble call!
  10:06am Dave B:

@Pierre - there might be a few "old maids"* in there. I'll zip em all up and get em you way in the coming day.

  10:06am Cecile:

Is your co-worker Chelsea Handler, tim? :D
  10:06am David Baker (St Albans - just north of London, UK:

Missed a bit of the show... just keep up the great stuff Trouble..
  10:07am Caryn:

@Adrian: yep, Daylight Savings Time came over the weekend. Over here, we're switching in a week or two, so only gotta remember the new times for a little while. I don't know about the UK.
  10:08am Adrian in London:

Thanks all; I am clearly behind the time (literally, sort of).
  10:09am avgwhiteguy:

I would name a book store:
Tome Tomb - "Where Dead Words Come to LIFE!"
  10:10am Andrew:

  10:11am Morphe:

OMPHALOS Bookshop is my suggestion...


The above stone was originally placed in the heart of the sanctuary to Apollo, where the Pythia would give the god's oracles...The spot where it stood was believed to be the center of the world (hence the name omphalos, or 'belly-button'), first determined when Zeus sent two eagles from each end of the kosmos and the two then met at this location...The stone shown above originally had two golden eagles attached to its top to commemorate this tradition. In addition, the Greeks believed that the omphalos stone marked the spot where Apollo first established his oracle by driving the serpent monster Python into the Earth (=Gaia).
Why the decoration on this stone? According to ancient accounts, there was originally a different omphalos stone at Delphi, prior to the one shown here (which was made as a replacement in the 4th cent.BC). The first stone was a meteorite, and was draped in an argenon, or woven net, thus creating an effect reminiscent of woven beehives (note that bees from the Bronze Age on were a symbol of death and resurrection) and/or snake baskets (note that Python was a giant serpent). Such imagery was surely evocative of the stone's importance as a sacred marker of Apollo's victory over the terrifying serpent...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11am trouble:

jennique! did you ride by the little red lighthouse? maybe the green parrot flew over from edgewater where there are hundreds of parrot parakeet things that escaped once upon a time and have taken over the town!
  10:12am Dave B:

Hey Pierre - I'm going to assume you already harvested these fine kernels....

  10:13am pierre:

@ Dave B : that's very nice of you. !
there will be some pop corn around here for sure.
(btw did you get my mail about this foolish idea?)
  10:14am tim from champaign:

@Cecile.....nope, she's definitely not Chelsea Handler. I looked her up on the internet and they didn't look alike at all. My co-worker has tons of good ones though. Like one day out of nowhere she said "I just can't cry anymore tears" even though she hadn't been weepy at all.
  10:15am Magda:

How about Print on Paper for a name of a book store?
  10:16am Dave B:

I did, and a full response is forthcoming!

"Who is more foolish? The fool, or the fool that follows the fool?"
  10:16am Jennique:

Trouble, yes indeedy I rode by the little red lighthouse. And yes, there always seems to be that sound of parakeets and parrots squawking from under the overpass around 160th Street. Today was the first time I actually spotted one. Love to see them free.
Book store name - Permanent Press?
  10:17am pierre:

@ Dave B : you're assuming right my friend ^^ it actually was my first step into this collection, since then i tried to find recorded version on 7" and Lp

@ Trouble : one day i designed a logo for a (imaginery) book stor that would sell only horror stories.
It was a tiny ghost (you know white sheet, black dot as eyes) saying "BOO" (with) ks, at the end.
  10:21am John R:

You said you weren't prepared today but this is a really awesome playlist. I used to live in NJ but am in SF now, yet still love WFMU.

True story: I'm in my 40's now and was giving my mom a ride this morning and she said "this music is weird, you always liked weird music" so it's good to know, even in my 40's, that music can still piss off my parents ;)

She also said "why is this lady singing about dirty dishes?" and I almost crashed the car I was laughing so hard--keep up the good work!
  10:24am erika:

hi, your set rules!
  10:28am Tiago in CPH:

my mother complains about the stuff before and after francoise hardy
  10:29am jamesie:

Your a damn good cook anyway, I still remember the summer rolls we enjoyed. Super.
  10:31am elf:

i'lll take free form for 1000 alec. 'the modern world' would be in it, without it.
  10:33am Marmalade Kitty:

clocks go forward in uk 1am Sunday 25th march.. nonsense, eh! In the mean time we're 4 hours ahead. What time is it really..?
  10:36am dumb dan:

man, there is nothing i like less than a song that is 65% feedback.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37am trouble:

great titles peeps! love em! and i am laughing my head off john r! why IS this woman singing about dirty dishes???
  10:40am elf:

"El Lucha Libro"?
  10:40am still b/p:

There's an outfit in town called the Dirty Dishes Burlesque Revue. So, there's kitchen work and then there's kitchen work.
  10:40am Cecile:

but srsly, trouble, she should see if amazon's case can help her.
they spent years in court, I'm sure they would be thrilled if their case helped someone else.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42am trouble:

cecile, she doesn't have the $ or time to mess with these evil do-ers. so she is opting to go forward with out the hassle of fighting the bloodsuckers. i respect that!
  10:44am Dave B:

"The Opulent Opuscule"
  10:44am Cecile:

I respect it as well.

But sometimes when a case is super-strong, she can just say, "oh, what about Amazon vs. Amazon?" and that ends it there. If that isnt' the case, then of course, re-name!
  10:46am Dave B:

Or "The Opuscule Corpuscle"
  10:47am still b/p:

Saw this in a published commentary recently and thought it was astoundingly foolish:
"But can we please, please, please get past the e-books versus print books thing? Please?
There's really no need for a discussion about the technology any longer."

Sure. 500 years of printed books as massively important parts of culture and history, but don't annoy this fussmonkey by extending the change/impact discussion beyond 15 minutes or so.
  10:50am Cecile:

my husband loves books.

I got him an e-book reader and he reads both print and e-books avidly. It's like music fans buying albums, CDs and MP3s.
  10:51am glenn:

ahhh. my girlfriend works for random house. i hear more about books, e or otherwise than i ever thought possible.
  10:51am Cecile:

A bookstore name: "Wood, water and pressure".
  10:52am Cecile:

Oh, I knew that name, I liked some of $2 Guitar's songs a lot. Great voice.
  10:53am Dave B:

Unfortunately I cannot find the appropriate clip from "Tunnel Vision" where books are consumed in pill form.

"Eat a good book today"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53am trouble:

i love browsing old book stores. covers that i have never seen before, artwork and graphics from older eras, all of this is part of reading for me. the e book thing doesn't offer that element. also the stumbling onto something, just like used record shopping. i can't tell you how many great finds have been unearthed at yard sales or flea markets, etc. i love that whole experience. but to be able to track down something that you have not been able to find otherwise, that is a good thing about the modern world of computers
  10:54am Brian en Angleterre:

glenn. My neighbour across the road works for RH too. I like the trout he sometimes brings over after he has gone fishing. Names not Brautigan.

"socialights and bookmarx", assuming its a leftist bookstore. "unbound by paper"? "no smoking"? want to keep it relevant, is it just a regular ol' bookstore?

The Wordcage
A Word in the Hand
The Words and the Bees

(I've rhymed the word 'word' with 'bird' you see. It's very clever.)
  11:02am Cecile:

For some reason, the word "collage" comes to mind.
  11:04am glenn:

i can understand it. i hated shirley collins' voice. then i smartened up.
