I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

Good afternoon Mayuko and listeners
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01pm listener james from westwood:

Afternoon, fred, Mayuko, and all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm David D:

Wow an early Escher!
Avatar 12:02pm Mayuko:

Good afternoon, james! fred, there are a bunch of French things that I have no idea what they are today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:03pm David D:

And hello Mayuko, Fred, James, and everyone to come...
Avatar 12:04pm Mayuko:

David D!! Welcome on board! I of course love his surreal stuff but actually love ones that are "normal" too.
Avatar 12:05pm fred:

"Let it begin / Oh joy" is a fitting opening for this show. Chances are these French things will be new to me. Though someone I do know sent a package of releases to the station last month
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm David D:

Yes, I am big on the geometries, but love this one too.
Avatar 12:08pm fred:

"Enregistrements Méconnus Pour Marionnettes, Théâtre Et Télévision" means "poorly known recordings for puppets, theater and TV". Scapin was a servant character in plays by Molière
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm David D:

Max Goldt is a very well-known German writer and satirist. I hardly recognized him together with the music.
Avatar 12:13pm Mayuko:

@David D I love Max Goldt so much! And yet I have absolutely no clue what he is singing. There was a (very small) fan club of him organized by a record label Captain Trip who released his stuff in Japan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm David D:

This piece was about reminiscing about intimacy in the past. "Weißt du noch" kind of means "remember when".

Hi Mayuko, David D., Fred, Listener James

Hey Evan!
Avatar 12:25pm Flash Strap:

Hey David!

Mayuko, curious if you are familiar with Sugai Ken's stuff?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm paul b:

I once saw Jad Fair (& 1/2 Japanese) open for Minor Threat sort of established my idea of what a rock 'n roll show ought to be
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Doug Schulkind:

Good day, Mayuko and all playverts!
Avatar 12:27pm Flash Strap:

Hi Doug
Avatar 12:28pm Mayuko:

Thanks so much David! Should have asked you earlier but didn't have time to prepare my show until yesterday. I'm really sad that Max is not making music any more. I'm sure he must be a very good (and funny) writer, but...

Evan!! Great to have you here! I don't know Sugai Ken - should I check him out?
  12:29pm Rickwaukee:

Is this what mansplaining sounds like to women?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Doug Schulkind:

Sir Flash!
Avatar 12:33pm Flash Strap:

Maybe, yeah. I think he's pretty cool, but his brand of pastoral minimalism and microscopic sounds made me think of you in particular and I would be curious to get your insight

I LOVE this Midori Takada album!
Avatar 12:34pm Mayuko:

Hello paul B! Never seen him live - saw his paper cutting art show though, loved it. Doug!! Good day to you too!
Hola Rickwaukee! Very possibly!
Avatar 12:35pm fred:

I would clicky-star that Midori Takada track, but I already did that in another show. I would love to see Kuniko Kato play this
Avatar 12:35pm Mayuko:

Yeah! I know this Midori Takada album has got played here gazillions of times already on fmu, but it's great so still playin it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm David D:

Yes, Max Goldt is great as a writer as well and excellent presenter at readings. I'm actually less familiar with his music, but that has now changed, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm David D:

And a very good day to you, Doug!
Avatar 12:37pm fred:

It's still as fresh as ever in my ears, I'm sure a few more gazillions plays wouldn't hurt
  12:38pm rw:

Hello! Enjoying the show. Okay, now I've got to get back to work...
  12:41pm rbrt:

this track feels like being inside a mechanical clock
Avatar 12:44pm Mayuko:

rw! Thanks for stopping by to say hello!
rbrt, welcome on board! It really sounds like it, and this track doesn't sound old at all to me even compare to all other minimal music from recent years.
Avatar 12:45pm Flash Strap:

This is such a cool album, I really like the cover
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Dave in Vermont:

most excellent set-been listening all along
Avatar 12:48pm Mayuko:

@Flash That cover reminds me of why sand and waves can have similar pattern on surface = pattern that wind makes.
Avatar 12:48pm Mayuko:

Thank you, Dave in Vermont! Welcome on board!
Avatar 12:52pm Flash Strap:

totally. it reminds me of the cover or Roedelius' first solo album (Durch die Wuste, or Through the Desert) which depicts a figure diving into the sea. Another weird conflation of sand and water/desert and ocean
Avatar 12:58pm fred:

All this talk of sand and desert, added to the heat over here: it's time for ice cream for me
Avatar 12:59pm Mayuko:

@fred Very good idea. I saw an ice cream truck when I got off the train near the station. It said "Italian Ice" and had Donald Duck looking things on it. Def not Mister Softee.
Avatar 1:02pm Flash Strap:

holy moly I love how long this track is, what an expanse
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm tmoyo:

Hello! Amazing track! BTW, I just realized now there was a big dipper in the Escher print. Im getting old..
Avatar 1:03pm fred:

At least it wasn't the evil Master Softee either. Maybe Jersey City is neutral in that conflict. Or is a new faction on the rise?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm paul b:

Now this track "Sand part 1" reminds of when I babysat for a family where the father repaired antique wall & hall clocks for a living, house was full of them all slightly out of sync with each other - then it struck midnight...
  1:16pm Rickwaukee:

  1:17pm rbrt:

@paul b yes! totally. love it
  1:18pm Rickwaukee:

Learn along with The Little River Band :) https://youtu.be/CZ_3G4xqSDQ
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm Ike:

Hello! Ah @Rickwaukee beat me to it! Good work.
  1:21pm Rickwaukee:

miscarriage also due to poor/no pre-natal healthcare - Support Planned Parenthood!
Avatar 1:30pm glenn:

i mashed together the titles of two emails and thought that the name of today's show was "six delicious ways to grill chicken".
Avatar 1:31pm fred:

@Rickwaukee: I'm not in any way disagreeing with your call for support of Planned Parenthood. But miscarriages are common despite the taboo about them. Looking for a direct obvious cause (and the implication that something or someone is to blame) too often fuels guilt in the women who had them. That's not helpful
Avatar 1:33pm Mayuko:

Hola Ike! Yes Support Planned Parenthood is where it all comes down to, RIckwaukee!

glenn, now I think I should do a show with that title "six delicious ways to grill chicken".
Avatar 1:34pm fred:

Hiiragi Fukuda reminds me of early Serge Gainsbourg
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Mayuko and Vertigoers. How's the AC at the station today? Keeping things cool?
  1:37pm Rickwaukee:

@fred for sure, blame is lame game - just recall reading that US has a ridiculously bad pre-natal and infant mortality rate for an industrialized nation - which comes down to healthcare
Avatar 1:39pm Mayuko:

@fred Hiiragi Fukuda was hanging out with Naked Rallizes, I'd imagine him being pretty familiar with French stuff too.

Glad to have you here, tmoyo!!
Avatar 1:41pm fred:

@Rickwaukee: I can't say from here, but it looks like US healthcare is generally not that good, especially for its price. Our own new God-Emperor seems to love it though, so I might know more all too soon
Avatar 1:44pm Flash Strap:

god-emperor... you must be in France?
Avatar 1:47pm fred:

@Evan: Indeed, unless Jupiter renamed it since I last checked
Avatar 1:50pm Flash Strap:

In the shadow of Jove, where guillotines now work in reverse, putting heads back onto kings
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm Ike:

U.S. health care quality varies a lot, and is often bad for poorer people and especially rural women. In some cases, esp. for those who can PAY, it can be some of the best health care in the world. My father needed a heart transplant a few years ago and it went very well for him thanks to Medicare and a good hospital in Baltimore (but it really helped that he was in good shape). We probably need Medicare for All, or similar, but it will never happen because there are lots and lots of profit-loving Republican doctors.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm David D:

Two hours of excellence, Mayuko - thanks!
Avatar 1:53pm Mayuko:

Ken, for some reason the AC is working much better than last year in Studio C. It must be because of you all pledgers! THANKS!!!!!!
Avatar 1:54pm fred:

RIP Pierre Henry.
Eliane Radigue must be one of the last French pioneers still alive now. I hope she'll get more recognition before she dies
Avatar 1:54pm Flash Strap:

great show Mayuko! Loved every second of it
Avatar 1:55pm glenn:

i'm sure there were lots and lots of profit loving doctors in all the countries that now have universal health care. sometimes you just have to say fuck you to those types.
  1:57pm Rickwaukee:

I don't know which I like more, playlist or DJ speaks. (it's DJ speaks) Can we have 3 hours of each?!
Avatar 1:57pm Mayuko:

Yeah, it was amazing to read and learn about reproduction health related issues, to find ancient stupidity I thought was from faraway back in time was(is!) still around up until pretty recent, or even now. Very sad.
Avatar 1:57pm Mayuko:

@fred what was that Great Nocturne all about btw?
Avatar 1:58pm fred:

I often bitch about work, but I heard about Pierre Henry's death through an email sent to everyone there. There are redeeming sides to it
Avatar 2:01pm Mayuko:

This is my last song today - thank you all for listening!
  2:03pm rw:

Thanks Mayuko! Enjoy the weekend everybody!
Avatar 2:03pm fred:

@Mayuko: I hope the Donald Duck Italian Ice truck will still be there for you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Ike:

Thanks Mayuko!
Avatar 2:08pm fred:

I think Magritte was Belgian
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm listener james from westwood:

Successfully made a huge work deadline during this fine program. Thanks, Mayuko, for helping me get it over the finish line!
Avatar 2:12pm fred:

Thanks Mayuko!
Avatar 2:13pm Jeff:

You're not over time! The slot is too short for you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Bye 'til next time!
Avatar 2:14pm Mayuko:

Oh! Thank you for listening, Jeff!!
Avatar 2:15pm Mayuko:

Congrats on making the deadline, james!!!!! You deserve ice cream break! Thanks again all, see you next week!
Avatar 5:38pm fred:

I listened again to La Grande Nocturne, now that its late I can hear it better. I don't like it. He starts each sentence with a number, but apart from that anything I could translate would be tainted by my not getting it, so I won't go there
Avatar 5:49pm fred:

To clarify: I think it's either poetry or something artistic that doesn't fit that mold. So it takes more than understanding the words to translate without betraying
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm coelacanth∅:

Excellent program Mayuko! Thanks
Avatar 6:45pm Mayuko:

@fred ha! well I trust you. Sounds like it's some intellectual bullshit, haha!
Thanks for listening, coelacanth∅!
