B-139. Wonder what that one is on the jukebox?

The trumpet in the opening was pretty great. The opening sounds are wonderful. Everyone everywhere should be listening to this, take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy just the right amount of cowbell.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Irene Trudel:

Hi everybody! Glad you're all here to settle in for the evening with me. Yes @V Priceless, I was in the WFMU documentary audience. I quite enjoyed it. @ Van, I wish I knew what was on that jukebox. That picture was taken about 10 years ago, and sadly the shop it was housed in-- Village Music in Mill Valley, CA-- is long gone.
Avatar 9:26pm Van in DC:

So yeah, that Lord of the Reedy River song. KaTe's version can be heard on the YouTubes AFTER Irene's show if you like :)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Irene and Trukeepers! Great start to the show!

Hi Van! Kate covering Donovan? Will CERTAINLY check that out after this show! :)
Avatar 9:28pm Van in DC:

I never knew Village Music but with a name like that I'm sad it's gone.

MATT! Hi ya!

Greetings also Jake, RRN63, fleep, adrian, Mugsy, Henry, newbies, "oldbies", familiars and yet-to-meets!

I thought I was gonna miss not having Irene to help me make it through my workday, but I solved that problem by working long hours, as I am right now.

Irene, I hope you are settling into your new time slot comfortably now. I know it's a big adjustment for you.

great show so far Irene.. perfect soundtrack for cookie making

Irene did you see Sharon Van Etten's new Spotify session live thingy she posted today? Very nice indeed. Especially Tarifa, but I just ADORE that song.

And her.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the amazing Sharon Van Etten!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Irene Trudel:

Gaylord, happy to give you a soft landing to the workday. Van, I'll certainly check out the KaTe rendition of that Donovan song. So pretty! I didn't see Sharon's Spotify session but will have time at work. I've been doing a lot of thumb-twiddling there lately while they decide what to do about Soundcheck.
Avatar 9:54pm Van in DC:

These strings are just what I think, well, everyone needed.
Avatar 9:55pm Van in DC:

"Decide what to do"? I love Soundcheck. I listen a lot. They have good stuff, and YOU.

What's up...?

ID'ed the jukebox, it's a The Wurlitzer Modern from 1936 www.jitterbuzz.com...

Wow nice work fleep! I think you nailed it!
Avatar 10:00pm Van in DC:

Well I hope Soundcheck's changes do not affect your engineering for them Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Irene Trudel:

Yup, Jake. Soundcheck is no longer a radio show. But I will still be engineering live music for them when they book it.

Hi Sean in UK! Hi Kat! Hi all of you European listeners dipping in on archive, and elsewhere!

Please take a moment to post a hello to Irene in the comments.

I love how this happens.

It is inevitable. Irene, you will rule the world, eventually. Ken is so screwed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

1936 Wurlitzer jukebox has such a face!: reminds me of fave book 'Monster Show' discoursing on the Bauhaus movement's influence on 'Frankenstein' 1933 (same year as 'Dracula' & worst year of Depression).
Avatar 10:09pm Van in DC:

The only thing with this new time slot is now I feel like I just HAVE to go bring up Jim Price on archive afterwords.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Irene Trudel:

Haha! Yes the archives rule, and glad to welcome new listeners like you, Melinda!
Avatar 10:12pm Van in DC:

I mean REALLY! The FMU archive genie is the BESTEST THING EVER. Pure magic!

Pretty much the most powerful musical force on the planet. For my money.

And I mean that. All of it.

@Van: Point (w/ mouse) and click! (w/ mouse) What other online Archive of music is so simple, and packed with such great stuff! :D

David Sylvian

Talk about an all-star cast. I think Mark Isham also flew in from time to time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I was working in the Monday timeslot - & Evening seems right for IreneT - esp. in Winter. The problem is WWOZ has great Vintage R&B Mon. & Tue. nights - whatcha gonna do...Archives usually don't help me much, 'cause one needs a Timeslot to listen to them in !

@tom: David J. Skal put it together for me that I'm in 'Monster Culture' like I'm a MusicJunkie - & his ideas about Why certain Imagery When fascinate me. The parallels of Horror & Rock'n'Roll are pretty interesting to consider too
...which calls to mind that William Burger following IreneT can be deceptive, if you're lulled into nocturnal coziness - but that's always been the way w/ WB being on late. : )

So nice to hear again Irene this Tuesday evening , turned in and all I can say , as I sip my tea ,, ahhh!

Life is about choices. And not all choices are limiting. Especially when there are archives, downloads, robots, drones and librarians.

My mind is not working any longer. I might drop out soon, but fear not I shall always and ever catch up on archive if I falter.

I like this.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:44pm Andrew Waterloo:

I really like having Irene in this time slot. It's the Liz Burg/Tony Coulter conflict that bugs me.

- wishing music rights allowed *everything* to be podcast...remember being a kid & drawing up a chart for the new Fall season of Sat. A.M. Cartoons on three networks to optimize timeslots ! : p ...If I were smart I'd have two computers running & finally figure out how to digitally record streams...to listen to...someday...
- I use Favorites as Applause - to voice approval, really - & it's kewl to see something already ☆ed on a new playlist - see who else clicked it...Sometimes I resolve to click only my very few fave standouts - but I'm hooked on the interactive delusion I guess...maybe sometime I'll wise up !...

So, any fans of the sitar?

The violin?

East meets West?

Anoushka Ravishankar and Joshua Bell...?


I thought fans of this show would appreciate a world class meet up of very different strings.

The WFMU Store is great!

Many premiums are only available by pledging during a particular year; but there's other Prize Warehouse items (usually those not show specific, like T-shirts and the Locked Groove LP, Best of LCD, etc) that you can purchase any time of year! All to benefit our Magic Factory.

Hi Irene!

"Long-tie listener, first-time commenter"... well, not first-time, but dirst in a long time.

I'm simultaneously glad and d=sad about the new schedule. Ch-ch-ch-changes... But more Neon Phil in my life? What could be bad about that?

Irene in the PM though... a good thing,but will take some adjustment.

That wold be "time", not "tie". Dagnation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm Matt from Springfield:

A great one indeed, and this Robert Plant is a good conclusion.
Next week: another episode, and another chapter!

Thanks Irene! Glad you all could listen and comment in.
Have a good night everyone!

Clearly I shouldn't be allowed near a keyboard after my bedtime.

Goodnight, Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Mike East:

another benefit to the schedule change: we get to sing "Goodnight Irene" at the end of each show

My WFMU hoodie - the zipper broke last week (my fault), and I took it to a tailor to repair. I am paying THIRTY DOLLARS for that freaking zipper repair. That's how much I value my WFMU hoodie.

So, back for the hour I missed while zonked last night...

Well Irene you seem to have picked up a hyper bunch of commenters this time of night. Must be all the E numbers.
Love the jukebox, guessing it is a late 40's Wurlitzer. Those books on the right look like Thames & Hudsons World of Art. A great series if so, used to work in a bookshop, ah those days of youth.
Keep it coming. x

Wow, this has to be a record with comments, fantastic. Thanks for the mention, Van, as always much appreciated. Going to catch up with the show today, looking at the playlist this is going to be a good one.

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving, Irene, Van, Sean (and anyone else reading this on Turkey Day)! The very opening beats of the Miles piece startled Philo and me with the radio tuning noise and castanets sounding similar to Comet 67p's "song." I JUST finished a composition using those two elements and uploaded this morning: kat330.bandcamp.com...

Looking forward to more synchronous sounds as we digest our huge noon meal. Thanks in advance for this archive, Irene! ♥

Ha, just happened to stop in.


And everyone!

Enjoying Tuesday today. Happy Thanksgiving!

Got to listen to the show over Thanksgiving, wow, wow, just an awesome selection of music, another absolute cracker of a show, Irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33am Irene Trudel:

Going back to the top of the show, I just discovered a version of "Lord of the Reedy River" performed by Donovan in "If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium." I forgot what a heartthrob he was in those days. youtu.be...
