the 90.1 signal got miraculously uncrappy sounding in the last hour or so - thank you radio pixies!
  12:12pm Cooh John:

You Only Live Twice and the theme from Midnight Cowboy go so well together.

I was just thinking the same thing. Great pairing.
Avatar 12:13pm Cliff in Prague:

I detect a theme for today's show...

All Midnight Cowboy versions by people with two first names: Hank Marvin, Martin Denny, etc.

So wait, HOW many times do you live? Maybe the next song will clear it up for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Michele:

I love this Alvarius B. track! Hi Chris and comments board!

So much for that theory.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm MD:

What Number am i on???!!! One Or Two!?!!!
  12:18pm Listener Robert:

Darn, they go SO well together, Stevel, that until I looked at the playlist now I'd thought they were ALL "You Only Live Twice"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm MD:

It's Driving me mad! I'VE GOT TO KNOW!!!!
  12:19pm ?:

phew. was worried that maybe John Barry died. Apparently, he did, but not recently.
  12:20pm Listener Robert:

I don't know if any of you have heard this comparison:

this is genius
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Michele:

This whole set wow!
  12:21pm Listener Gregory:

I don't know what this show is; I don't think I have ever listened to it. But if this is what it's like, I'm going to be back every Thursday. YOLO!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Passaic River Blues:

I will gladly live on this musical Moebius strip, Mr. Conductor!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22pm Jeezy:

I pray to the Radio Overlord that the entire show continue this way.
Avatar 12:22pm Jeff:

This is indeed amazing. It wasn't until @Listener Robert's comment that I looked closely enough at the playlist to confirm that we hadn't been listening to just versions of You Only Live Twice the whole time.
  12:24pm rw:

For some reason this show's having a much needed calming effect. So far, anyway. Thank you Chris M.!
Avatar 12:24pm V Priceless:

never realized until now that Roxy Music's 'Both Ends Burning' has a little 'YOLT' thing going on, too...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Zats, I don't even know what's the sniglet for two or more songs alternating over and extended period.
Avatar 12:27pm Jeff:

@Listener Gregory: funny that you'd bust out the YOLO. I have this thing where particular words or phrases trigger my subconscious to start playing a tune in my head if there's some sort of lyrical match, and throughout the long season of people saying YOLO this and YOLO that, every time I encountered YOLO in written or spoken form I'd start hearing "You Only Live Twice" in my brain.

So twice, such cowboy!
  12:30pm Cooh John:

Heard LSJ play the Midnight Cowboy theme live. YOLT.
  12:30pm Listener Gregory:

I am old enough to have seen the movie YOLT in the theater, and the theme song stuck in my head for a long time afterwards. I don't think it was played on the radio much, but that descending line just gets in between your neurons and keeps stimulating them.
Avatar 12:30pm Jeff:

Very midnight
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Jeezy:

I embarrassingly thought it was a reference to Robbie Williams' atrocious "Milennium" track, at first...
  12:33pm Listener142985:

oh hell yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Fuzzy:

I always used the Ferrente and Teischer Midnight Cowboy for my bed music on KFSK, slowed down a bit on the turntable for subtle trippy effect. Now I have all these others to consider if I ever do another radio show someday!

Avatar 12:40pm V Priceless:

this show is on the way to being the stuff of legend, right up there with Clay's 'Music to Dust By' fill-in, Diane's "Diamond Dogs" in it's entirety, concluding with a half hour loop conjuring of "Chant of The Ever Circling Skeletal Family", Kurt's 4-hour DB tribute and/or his 4-hour singles-going-steady stint, McGasko's Rigby covers show, etc., etc. Bravo, Chris M!

You just had to know that Tcherepnin would be in here somewhere.

Inside baseball. How long did it take to come up with these picks? Tip of the hat. This is why WFMU deserves regular cash infusions from fans.

maybe metallica will pick up again once whatshisname can shoot his guns and hunt without worrying about his neighbors looking askance (he's leaving marin county, he says, because we criticize him for hunting, but really we just wish he'd leave or make good music again).
