ah, george from the morning show put out a nice spread for everyone here today so maybe that's where she got it. (i had a bagel and some fruit already.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm

Been listening on the dog walk, great stuff!
Listener Robert:

Actually what I think she has is a sound file of somebody eating. You know, to symbolize Thanksgiving.
Listener Robert:

She says she has mostly pickles. I still think it's a .wav or the like.
Avatar 12:58pm
Kurt Gottschalk:

well, if they're lossless pickles, i'll consider it.
Avatar 1:09pm

nice show Kurt - and I'm embarrassingly unfamiliar with Muhal Richard Abrams

I hate compressed pickles!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16pm

lossy pickles have notably less flavor and a texture like swiss cheese.
nooo thank you.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm
Doug Schulkind:

What was your impression of George Lewis' book. I adored it, of course, but I found its scholarly tone unnecessary and distracting. Lewis probably felt required to produce a "serious" tome to satisfy academia. Still couldn't put it down, though.
Avatar 2:10pm
Kurt Gottschalk:

LIfe Line ABC! that makes great sense, jeff!
Avatar 2:12pm
Kurt Gottschalk:

doug, if you know george, that's just kind of the way he is - a born academe. i was disappointed by a couple of small mistakes from the time after he left chicago but they were inconsequential, really (in fact, i don't remember what they were). it's an invaluable book and, since the aacm is fairly a guarded group, nobody else could have written it (i fantasized about it but i never would have been given the kind of access he had).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm
Doug Schulkind:

I am happy to know the book reflects George's own instincts. As it absolutely should be.
Avatar 2:22pm
Kurt Gottschalk:

which ain't to say he ain't a hoot sometimes.
Avatar 3:02pm

Happy Thanksgiving,Kurt and pals!
