Listener comments!

  12:06pm Brian in UK:

Welcome back Steve. We need something to cheer us up over here from this incessant rain.
  12:07pm Sea Parsons:

Listener Sea tuned in.
  12:09pm kat330:

Hi, Steve! First-time listener, but I like your previous playlists a lot!

Howdy, BUK! Your rain would have been an appropriate backdrop for our movie-viewing the past few days: "Rashomon" and "Georgy Girl," "Kon Tiki," "Total Recall," "The Prisoner" final ep -- all very wet.
  12:10pm fred von helsing:

OMG someone exhumed Guy Lombardo :)
  12:11pm fred von helsing:

the remake of The Prisoner was sadly lamous - it could have been any generic sci-fi movie
  12:11pm frenchee:

I collect versions of the PETER GUNN theme, and I don't have this one! It's grrrreat!
  12:12pm kat330:

Hiya, fred v h! We were wondering about that since it's promoted at the end of the DVD specials.
  12:13pm kat330:

Yes, love the Gunn!
  12:15pm fred von helsing:

hiya k330, what was the conclusion on my melancolia review - too demented ? off to party RSN, only five more hours in this the barfiest of the barfy year
  12:16pm Brian in UK:

Hiya kat330 I remember the original Prisoner on TV here.
  12:17pm Ike:

That "Prisoner" remake was willfully incoherent (in the hopes that viewers would mistake the confusion for profundity) and slow, plus the dialogue was terrible. Even Ian McKellen couldn't make any hash browns out of that hash.
  12:18pm kat330:

Me, too, over here -- but I'd forgotten so very much of it. Was good seeing it all again. Actually, I'd already seen ALL those movies before that I listed (except the remake of Recall).,
  12:19pm kat330:

I'll let Philo speak for himself, fred. I already deemed it "succinct and heady." :)
  12:19pm Thatpatsmith:

Great show!
  12:20pm Brian in UK:

Guess I should add it was probably slightly less plot orientated then the Rockford Files.
  12:21pm fred von helsing:

If the music at the party slacks off I'll try to tune'em in to "The Fun Ninety-One" :-D
  12:23pm Philo Gristle:

Hello! Fred, liked your review of Melancholia, not demented at all (or, some insanity is always good for writing reviews). Whether accurate is irrelevant since any decent movie will be open to more than one interpretation. Which is not to say I don't agree, but would need to rewatch to get fresh perspective! It makes my top 5 of the year, tho.
  12:24pm Philo Gristle:

Uh, should be more accurate. Makes my top 5 of NEW movies seen in 2012.
  12:25pm drew in tucson:

Enjoying the show Steve. Rainy morning in Tucson - and that's a good thing.
  12:27pm Philo Gristle:

Much as I like them 'solo,' wish Calexico guys were back with Howe Gelb. Some random acts of noise would fit in.
  12:37pm Mike East:

Though I don't like to admit, I don't think I really "got" Melancholia. Or a may have just not liked it very much.
  12:37pm Parq:

Hanji! Whatever that means.
  12:38pm kat330:

Are Cornershop still "gettin' it done"? I hope so.
  12:39pm kat330:

@Mike: In the New Year, check the "junk mail" bin morning, noon and night on the job! :)
  12:41pm Philo Gristle:

I wouldn't recommend it to most people, and I think you need to be in the right frame of mind to get into it, but it did work for me. Not always true of Von Trier's movies.
  12:43pm kat330:

Ahhhh!! A few hours delayed, but here's my sweet "Sleepwalk"! Thanks, Mr. Krinsky!
  12:44pm Philo Gristle:

Speaking of Tucson, always really likes the Rainer Ptacek version of Sleepwalk.... especially a live version heard on some boot.
  1:07pm Brian in UK:

'Were you lying down when you stood me up' Gurf Morlix. Oh yeah.
  1:08pm Philo Gristle:

Well, I'll throw in a probably impossible instro request:

If you have Bo Diddley's "Aztec" handy, that's a terrific and sadly mostly forgotten tune.
  1:10pm Dave in PA:

Great show Steve!
  1:11pm maa:

Steve! our better halves know each other through work. first time hearing your show and it's great!
  1:12pm kat330:

At moments, I thought Gary Stewart's voice was similar to Loudon Wainwright's.
  1:13pm Dave in PA:

Does anybody know what that instrument was - the one that sounded like a bass slide guitar?
  1:20pm kat330:

Steve, if you see the Lonnie Holley "Just Before Music" around there, I'd sure enjoy hearing "Fifth Child Burning" -- if it fits in with your mood.
  1:26pm Bubba:

Excellent New Year's soundtrack!
  1:27pm kat330:

As for Winchester snubbing Patsy, similarly Louisville never gave Ali his due until just the past decade. A really nice museum they have across the river there now.
  1:28pm Mark in Hawaii:

Good morning! like your station and your show....long live freeform radio....request "Lost Love Found" off Tucson
  1:41pm frenchee:

Oh this Geoff M. is soooo beautiful and bittersweet.
  1:45pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Sorry for the tardiness in tuning in, Happy New year to one and all
  1:45pm DJKG:

hey steve! i've been enjoying your choice cuts today. perfect music for finishing up a long, boring freelance project on the last day of the year! thanks~
  1:48pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Also hello to familiar friends, Kat, Drew, Parq, Brian
  1:50pm kat330:

Hi, Sean! And Happy New Year to you as well! You have rain I hear?
  1:51pm kat330:

In this same musical mood, Steve, some Dave Van Ronk would go down nicely. If you still are wanting requests. :)
  1:54pm kat330:

This is so Cotton-pickin' great!
  1:55pm annie:

been listening since you got on air, had to stop by and say hey and happy new year; so nice tp hear your voice and great selection of tunes!!
  1:55pm DJKG:

<3 elizabeth c!
  1:56pm kat330:

Happy New Year, Annie!
  1:58pm BSI:

Holy effing heck, this Georgia Browns piece is astounding times infinity.
  1:59pm annie:

thanks kat, you too!!
  1:59pm JJH77:

perfect soundtrack for a snowy, lazy, midwestern New Year's Eve afternoon. Thanks!
  Swag For Life Member 2:02pm steve krinsky:

Hi all. Sorry I've been to busy to chime in; hope you are liking the show. Email me at stevek@wfmu.org. Happy new year.
  2:07pm kat330:

Muldaur's career spans my own life approx., from age 16 to the reverse of that number. ;) Nice bookends to a shelf of vinyl.
  2:28pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Kat, ridiculous amounts, the day is dry until I step outside with my bicycle, then the heavens open
  2:28pm kat330:

Mollusk injecting that Perry Mason (? I think) theme in there!
  2:29pm Brian in UK:

Hello Sean, been listening on the radio. I see now where Taj Mahal's version of Freight Train comes from, almost note for note. Music Fuh Yah is a wonderful album.
Happy NY everone. Come back soon, Steve.
  2:31pm kat330:

@Sean: Stay inside then and listen to these warm sounds from my early childhood (and even prenatal) years. ☼ <-- warm sun
  2:37pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

This track is wonderful
  2:50pm Kurt Vonnegut:

oh, that's what that is...
  2:53pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

It's coming up to eight pm here and I am on my third beer. Most likely an early night which is totally wimpish but Happy New Year to you all
  2:55pm WC Fieldmouse:

Happy merry joy every girl every boy!
  2:55pm Kurt Vonnegut:

Merry Krinsky and Happy New Year!
  2:56pm kat330:

HNY, Sean! May you awake to a sunny first morn of 2013!
  2:58pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Cheers Kat, I think I should purchase my fourth pint of foaming mead and raise that glass to you
  3:00pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Steve, thanks for a great show, Happy New year to you

Had to check out your archive here Steve. I'm also Beta-testing the brave new comments system and wanted to see how it interacts with an archived playlist :)
