First time this band is being played on WFMU, apparently ... can anyone guess their country of origin (without googling)?
Avatar 7:24pm glenn:

i say...... norway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm listener james from westwood:

Oh, man, I'd be throwing a dart in the dark. Point of origin's a wide parameter on this station!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Gary:

Japan. (This band, too, actually.)

Always a joy to hear Ginsberg's America.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Gary:

It's amazing (sad) what happens to my brain the moment the microphone is turned on ... :(
Avatar 7:37pm ndbob:

Hmm.. I have to dissent here .. as much as I like some of Ginsburg's work - such as Howl ad Kaddish, I find America pretentious and annoying

Sorry but...

Well, if we go off the air suddenly, you'll know why!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm listener james from westwood:

Also got a call from my town's office of emergency management re: flash flooding. If I see a boat being towed down the street outside my window, I know it's gotten deep.
Avatar 7:42pm Holly in NC:

Hello Gary & all friends! RRN63 ! xo !
Will be catching up via archive .
May I just say I am not in love with my country anymore? I'm open to couples counseling, but I fear it's too late. We've grown too far apart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Gary:

Just got one of those warnings as well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Gary:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm listener james from westwood:

Holly, you're likely not the only one considering a trial separation!
Avatar 7:44pm ndbob:

Heya Holly!.. sorry and sad to hear that.. and no it's not too late - patience, patience - just give it time

I can't believe Danny Thomas was this awesome ... but he was. He was!
Avatar 8:12pm tim abdellah:

THE Danny Thomas? How fantastic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Gary:

Tim! And, yes, THE Danny Thomas. It's ... I dunno ... mindblowing, basically. He's killing this!
Avatar 8:14pm tim abdellah:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm davex:

This is very surprising. Do you know where the original recording was from?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Gary:

No idea, Dave. Here's a brief blurb about the collection I got it from, though it's not any real help on that front: www.allmusic.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm davex:

Yeah, I was just looking at that. I suppose he may have had a secret career singing in Arabic. It's even surprising he was able to keep the language up that well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Gary:

Here's what Wikipedia tells us: In 1932, Thomas began performing on radio in Detroit at WMBC on The Happy Hour Club. Thomas first performed under his Anglicized birth name, "Amos Jacobs Kairouz." After he moved to Chicago in 1940, Thomas did not want his friends and family to know he went back into working clubs where the salary was better, so he came up with the pseudonym "Danny Thomas" (after two of his brothers) ....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Gary:

This is pretty clearly being sung in Japanese, yeah? Khanh Ly is, of course, Vietnamese. But she performed quite a bit in Japan after she left her country for the U.S. in the 1970s.
Avatar 8:26pm hyde:

yeah, I don't think I've heard her sing in Japanese. Cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Gary:

I've been meaning to post this album to the blog for a while now ... should probably do that
Avatar 8:28pm hyde:

in a purely selfish mode, I'll say yes. Yes you should.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Gary:

Will do, then
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm davex:

What a track! (Look Cowboy) Anyhow, I think I'm heading off - good night, Gary and all...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Gary:

Happy trails, Dave -- and thanks for hanging out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm davex:

Fine show, by the way, I'll catch up later...
Avatar 8:41pm northguineahills:

I never tire of Bonnie & Clyde...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm listener james from westwood:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Gary:

You took the words out of my mouth, NGH (and a word out of Serge & Bridgette's, James)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm listener james from westwood:

Likewise, NGH. Almost had a cow when I heard it on "Mad Men."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Gary:

I remember that, James! I was all like "Holy Crap what is this awesomeness?!?" and then, duh, I remembered.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Gary:

How would people feel about an all Serge(-related) program around Bastille Day?
Avatar 8:46pm hyde:

c'est magnifique!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm listener james from westwood:

I'd say oui oui!

Fireflies! I used to see them in Brooklyn, but haven't yet encountered any here in Queens. Too far north, mebbeh?
Avatar 9:22pm hyde:

they're really amazing out here, no street lights or much other ambient light so they really stand out. kind of amazing.

I totally stumbled onto it in a thrift store, Jeff!
