Hi, I saw you Mike.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44am Stanley:

Grooving but on the move.
Have a good show.
Avatar 6:45am Mike VL:

Hey Stanley. I was worried about everyone! Thanks for saying hi!

1980's Electro I feel Young.

You ARE young, Scott!

Awesome cut
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10am Rob W:

You know it's summer when parking spots abound on my street in Hoboken even on a Saturday night. So I can understand the comments board being a bit quiet!
Avatar 7:12am Mike VL:

Ha. Thanks, Rob.
Avatar 7:17am Mike VL:

Ive never seen it this dead...and I used to do a 3-6 am weekly slot
  7:32am pzn:

Well, I'm here and your making my morning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33am fred:

Good morning Mike! A delightful surprise, now I wish I had turned on the radio earlier. Proof that household chores should always be postponed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34am Rob W:

Household chores should always be canceled!
  7:35am joe!:

good morning-what's this background music? really nice, as is all the other stuff.
Avatar 7:35am Mike VL:

Fred! My friend...put down the dustpan! So great to see you
Avatar 7:37am Mike VL:

Hi there, Joe. It's Bernard Fevre - track called Pendulum. When I did a weekly show it was my bed music. Glad you like it!
  7:40am joe!:

i'll be checking out more of his stuff-thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40am fred:

@Rob: I take that as a ringing endorsement of being (even more of) a slob from now on
Avatar 7:43am Mike VL:

Joe- Great! He did a lot of library music and his stuff shouldn't be too tough to locate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45am fred:

@Mike: great to hear you, it's been too long. February, really? Man, I'm not the only one here that should make more room for WFMU
Avatar 7:45am Mike VL:

I had a stack of 45s I left at home! This is what happens when you get up at 3 am to head to FMU.
Avatar 7:47am Mike VL:

Fred- I know, I know. Well, despite my absence, I really appreciate that you always manage to say "hello".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55am fred:

I can't think of a better reason to get up at 3am on a Sunday than going to the station. In fact, I can't think of any other reason
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00am Rob W:

Speaking of Angolan music, Paulo Flores just played a buoyant show at NY's Le Poisson Rouge, the first show anyone can remember by an Angolan artist in NY. Though Paulo and his excellent band's esthetic, tuned to contemporary Lusophone tastes, is not as groovy, we heard rhythms very similar to the vintage Jovens de Prenda track. Actually Paulo Flores' brilliant guitarist Teddy Nsingi is an oldster - he may be on some of those vintage Angolan tracks that have turned up on comps in recent years, I will have to look into that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05am fred:

@Rob: I hope things are better in the USA, but this year here in France has been brutal in terms of getting visas for musicians. Still random, but more canceled shows than usual, it seems
Avatar 8:07am Sean B.:

Thanks for the superb music you are throwing down this morning;Most everything you have played is very much new to my ears.Good morning and have a great day.My attention has not been easily distracted from the music.....
Avatar 8:10am Mike VL:

Thanks Sean B...thanks for dropping in and I'm glad you're liking it.
Avatar 8:12am Sean B.:

Loving it man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15am fred:

Mike, do you have some info about that Ata Kak track? I don't know whether I like it or not, but it's arresting
Avatar 8:20am Mike VL:

Fred - Should give some more info. www.factmag.com...
Avatar 8:21am Mike VL:

It's on Awesome Tapes from Africa. Brian Shimkovitz who does the blog also did a Listener Hour here at the station a few years back too.
  8:26am joe!:

re: Fevre, Cosmos 2043 looks like a good buy if only for the album art--nothing but disco Star Wars. Glad i tuned in.
Avatar 8:29am Mike VL:

Joe! - Yeah, that's a great cover. "The Strange World Of..." is also one worth checking out. Glad you tuned in too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31am fred:

@Mike: this is a great story (re: Ata Kak). And Awesome Tapes from Africa is definitely worth the "awesome" label. I heard him do a DJ set twice; not my thing but each time he threw in a few tracks that had me wondering what had just happened
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40am Mike East:

knocking it outta the park this morning, Mike
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41am Mike East:

got the FM signal blasting through three rooms
Avatar 8:44am Mike VL:

hey Mike East! Thanks so much...let's wake up the neighbors!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51am fred:

Fascinating article about the restoration process; thanks for that link Mike. I will send it to people at work about what tools we could make to ease the process. I mean the lead researcher in my team is one of the world's foremost experts about phase, he could help
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59am fred:

Great show again Mike! Now don't wait five months to come back, please. Especially with that teaser you just threw out
