Sounds ripped from cassettes & CDs found in immigrant-run mom & pop stores. Deconstructed icons. Field recordings. Sonic mayhem from the far corners of the internet.

Howdy, Gary and all!!
Ooh! Best-of show! This is always a great time of year b/c of those. Love this time, and the weeks after the Record Fair, b/c of all the great new tunes that get into the mix.

Hey, James! My GF & I just sat down for a quick dinner before show ... see you in a bit!

Avatar 7:21pm Holly in NC:

I may have to go offline soon - so must ask as dead curious & I've not had a chance to listen yet - how IS the new D'Angelo album? My Feedly practically exploded when it was released. Only the TermBo type bros seem unmoved.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Gary:

The D'Angelo is great -- I'll be playing a bit in a while
Avatar 7:22pm hyde:

it's all so new
Avatar 7:23pm Holly in NC:

@hyde - that would be "noy" :-)
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 7:24pm davex:

That would be Ha-Noy.

Just had some latkes. Gonna have some more latkes. Best Latkes of 2014.

Mmm, latkes

@Doug - Tell us more. Please! Who needs sexting when we can have latkeying?
  8:00pm Doug Schulkind:

Please, Holly! This is a family show!
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:06pm davex:

Where are the latkes of yesteryear?

No, really! What makes a "best of" latke?

"Without standards, there can be, really, no love." -- Charles Olsen
  8:09pm Doug Schulkind:

For one, Holly, the latke has to be in front of me. Actually, that is the only requirement.
Avatar 8:10pm hyde:

some place in woodstock is having a 10$ all you can eat latke fest this saturday morning. this strikes me as a bad idea, unless you can sleep all afternoon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm listener james from westwood:

That was indeed a batty bit of bed music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Gary:

How do I "like" Doug's comment?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Gary:

(Let me count the ways ...)
Avatar 8:20pm Holly in NC:

{already ducking} I ask because I've never had a latke that enthralled me. Limp, greasy, underseasoned...
Avatar 8:24pm Holly in NC:

I wish I knew photoshop because I was just sent the BEST picture of my young friend Eli wearing his brand-new Hanukkah sporran (maternal side Jewish, paternal side Scottish methodist) and if I could delete his face I'd share it with you all because the photo (& Eli) ROCKS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Gary:

Eff it, I just want to hear what the new Ana Tijoux sounds like, so I'm playin it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm northguineahills:

I was up all night (5:30am) trying to plunge my stopped up toilet w/ only limited results. Our super was out, so our landlord called a plumber, and apparently he went to the wrong apartment. So, now I'm contemplating going to the bar down the street (and I don't want to spend $). So much plunging my hands feel like they have stigmata.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Gary:

NGH, that's horrible
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm northguineahills:

I just had to bring toilet talk o'er here.
Avatar 8:29pm Holly in NC:

@ngh - what Gary said! Ugh. Do you think one of your neighbors might have a (plumbing) snake?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm northguineahills:

I doubt it, I only have three neighbors, and they don't seem like the handy type. I've never had a problem using the plunger before, but I kept telling myself to get a better plunger.
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Uncle Michael:

rappy poppy folky!
Avatar 8:36pm hyde:

@ngh yikes. good luck with that, man.

LOL, that's the "field," UM!
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Uncle Michael:

I thought it was you!
Avatar 8:41pm Holly in NC:

@ngh - NOT suggesting that wikihow is generally a trustworthy source of info, but this 1 idea (#4 of 9) of using an unravelled coat-hanger with a wad of rag on top as a snake substitute looks somewhat promising...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm listener james from westwood:

Eyes started crossing, so I laid aside the editing and will now enjoy Bodgea Pop distraction free.
Holy Hannah, that's quite horrible, NGH.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Gary:

This band has been described as the New York Dolls of China. I saw them in Central Park back in September, they were terrific!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm northguineahills:

Thanks Holly, I tried that w/o a rag last year w/ crappy results (also got the idea via wikihow). I just need to find a rag to sacrifice.
Avatar 8:44pm Holly in NC:

"crappy results" :-)
Avatar 8:44pm hyde:

jeez, i basically don't know anything at all that is being played tonight. i think i spent too much time listening to collections of old 78's during 2014....
Avatar 8:45pm Holly in NC:

Rag in my house = any t-shirt without a wfmu logo!
Avatar 8:51pm Holly in NC:

Have been enjoying this Verkys comp, very much.
Plus whenever I think of "Congo" I get to quote Vachel Lindsey in my head WHICH I KNOW IS HORRIBLY RACIST AND WRONG WHICH IS WHY IT STAYS INSIDE MY HEAD. Had to memorize in 9th grade !!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Gary:

I should know that Vachel Lindsey -- poem? -- but I don't think I do
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:57pm davex:

The Greek stuff is great!
Avatar 8:59pm Holly in NC:

Poem yes, "The Congo", easily Googleable.
I can also recite "To An Athlete Dying Young", though I can't imagine anyone would ever want me to do so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Gary:

Well, if I was dying, perhaps?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm Gary:

Though I guess I'm a bit too old to be young. And probably not exactly "athletic."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Gary:

Still ...!
  9:13pm y2k:

Hi Gary, I believe it's Modern Sky the concert you went to. I haven't been there myself but I know there's a lot of great bands from China. I wonder the hardcore one you mentioned could be (The) Tongue, widely held as the king of the underground rock in China.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm northguineahills:

This year I bought the fewest amount of records since I was 16, due to poverty and my wife attempting to put a ban on me buying records for the last four years due to lack of space. I think I bought maybe four records and two cassettes at shows. Thank ye Zarathustra for the internet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm northguineahills:

(nope, fewest since I was 15)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Gary:

Y2k! The hardcore or metal or whatever they were band was; 舌头乐队
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Gary:

Which Google Translate tells me is indeed the Tongue Band!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Gary:

NGH, while I did buy a few things this year, almost everything I'm playing was, um, what's the word for "filched"?
Avatar 9:20pm hyde:

Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Uncle Michael:

I like this one a lot.
Avatar 9:22pm hyde:

all i know is, i'm gettin' some good ideas on stuff to buy for the gf's b-day in january. i hope aquarius has some of this these on lp.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Gary:

Better to filch than to felch, I always say
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm listener james from westwood:

Avatar 9:25pm hyde:

i did buy that Khun Narin's Electric Phin Band lp this year, at least.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm northguineahills:
