You are lighting up my evening patio
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Cheri! Happy to bring a little sparkle your way.
  9:32pm JakeGould:

Hey Irene!
  Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Mikey_B:

These are some great tunes for a relaxing Tuesday night...
  9:36pm Mike tp:

hello Irene!!!tuning in to real good sounds!! and our sights are on the hurricanes!!
Avatar 9:42pm Fox (Rā-chul):

It's been really great hearing all the DJs play Uncle Wiggly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm Glenn L:

Love this Uncle Wiggly song! Thanks, Irene!
  9:43pm JakeGould:

I wasn’t initially going to comment on William Berger’s passing but hey… I will say that I don’t like black metal or noise. And I have met a lot of people who like that stuff that I then don’t like.

And in contrast, William Berger—from my limited exposure to him—just was an affable curmudgeon. Someone who could respect tat someone might not have the same tastes as them but still like the person. Sad about all he’s recently went through, but as I have said on another playlist, I hope he’s at peace wherever he is now.
  9:47pm Jeremy:

William had such a unique guitar style! Uncle Wiggly was a fantastic band.
Avatar 9:47pm slugluv1313:

good evening, Irene
Love and Blessings to you :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Irene Trudel:

Hey Jake, Mikey_B, Mike tp, Rachel, and Glenn! Sorry I couldn't say more about William last week. Ken asked me not to mention it until he had a little more confirmation. We're all pretty broken up about him.
  9:51pm Bobby:

This version of Norway completely melts me. Yes to this.
  9:51pm Listener Robert:

Is "I Said Goodbye to Me" a mashup of "Piano Man" and something else that sounds familiar but I just can't place?
Avatar 9:55pm Fox (Rā-chul):

Jake: Yeah... I mentioned somewhere else, that though I didn't know, like, ANYTHING that William played, nor the movies he referenced, but... we were cool to each other. He was always utterly himself, without pretense. He ended up being the best friend I had at WFMU, which was unexpected, but seamless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Irene Trudel:

No, Robert. It's a tune written by Harry Nilsson. So many of his songs had the ring of familiarity.
  9:58pm Listener Robert:

Is it possible the familiarity ran in the opposite direction, i.e. composers having been influenced by Mr. Nilsson?
  10:00pm Listener Robert:

Heh, I liked "Lobby", a contraction of Listener & Bobby. That can happen inadvertently when we write over Web applications, and the connection's a little slow and misses packets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Irene Trudel:

Oops, caught me trying in vain to correct my bad typing! Sorry, I meant Robert. But I do think Harry was Hugely influential.
  10:02pm Stevel:

Why have I not purchased every Sparks album? Hippopotamus is very impressive. Damned good.
  10:03pm steve from gberg:

Hey all, good Sparks!
Avatar 10:03pm slugluv1313:

@ JakeGould -- yes, William was a total sweetheart
@ Irene -- have not heard any more details about his passing; whatever happened -- i hope he is at peace
i LOVED the fact that he was this endless wealth of film information -- and was always kind and generous enough to let me know more about whichever film he was talking about
me, i loved the music he played -- and i am not even a huge black metal fan!
but artists like Couch Slut, Mandatory Human LiveStock Reduction, and Wretched Worst are some of my now-favorites, thanks to William: beyond compare and unique and cathartic as hell
AND all the cats here -- including the foster kitties! -- totally adored his show! 'nuff said :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm Uncle Michael:

You've got Mael.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm Summer and Michael:

So great to hear you back, Irene! And that track "Norway" I think is our absolute fav of Beach House songs...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm joe mulligan:

always a great show Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm coelacanth∅:

hello Irene and welcome back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Tome:

Irene you're show is ending summer the best way , glad you're back again and in the evening too again !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm coelacanth∅:

i'm sad for your loss Irene (as well as my own, but...) -condolences.
  10:20pm ztnap:

this is a very pretty set @Irene
Avatar 10:23pm slugluv1313:

yes beautiful!
lovely artwork, too :)
  10:24pm Stevel:

It's very nice to continue to read and hear tributes to Wm. B. His show could make me extremely uncomfortable. That moment of suspense when the photo on his playlist would load. Difficult to put into words why I bonded with his show, although I do like heavy music. He was a clearheaded gentle guide to some pretty dark shit. I'll miss his show and his voice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm coelacanth∅:

yeah Stevel i sometimes -after a quick peek -would wait to bring up the playlist again until after he'd played a few songs, so the gruesome image wouldn't be visible to me!
  10:37pm Stevel:

Fish: Exactly!
  10:37pm ztnap:

I'm fairly new to WFMU. I have heard much about W Berger and his show lately because he recently passed. Is there an archived show anyone could recommend?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Tome:

Avatar 10:42pm slugluv1313:

@ ztnap -- if you look at the WFMU home page, links to his archived shows should be right there
thank you so much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks ztnap & slugluv! If you click on the picture you'll find lots of her work on Flickr. Absolutely brilliant "deviant art" as she calls it. Just discovered her yesterday.

SteveI and coelacanth, it's great hearing all the stories about William. I'm sure he's listening in somewhere.
  10:45pm Stevel:

ztnap: Any My Castle of Quiet might do. I suggest listening to the introductory pieces more than once, because they're creepy as hell. He usually gives a clue in any show titles, as to what might be featured--noise, black metal, doom, what have you. He has a much longer history prior, but I'm not familiar with that.
Avatar 10:57pm slugluv1313:

thanks Irene! definitely want to learn more about her!
  11:08pm ztnap:

This is great stuff, Irene! Thanks for this to end my evening.
  11:19pm KP:

Good evening, Irene
Avatar 11:21pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

Wow, never heard The Strawbs progging out like that before!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Irene Trudel:

Hi KP!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm Irene Trudel:

wood-elf, Ghosts was a fairly late album for The Strawbs. 1974. They were pretty proggy at the right moments.
  11:39pm JakeGould:

So here is a question about William Berger’s history: Are all of the “Hip Bone” shows lost to time? I assume that digitally they are not available, but in light of it all I wonder if William had air checks that can be digitized and put on line at some point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm Irene Trudel:

Jake, unless listeners have copies taped off air I think they're gone. If anyone out there has any shows they'd like us to digitize, please let us know.
  11:51pm Bruce S.:

Hi Irene- Welcome back. Glad you are here. Tonight I have been writing about the organizing of physical space and listening to your selections- the last 2 were aligned w. my words: by Flying Island & Theo Blackman- great show! You have the voice of a dear thoughtful friend-Thanks.
Avatar 11:52pm northguineahills:

For some reason, Offa Rex has slipped under my radar... thanks, digging! (a slight Sandy Denny vibe)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks everyone for tuning in. It was fun to be here spinning tunes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Irene
