Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm

Hello! Sorry to see you're not on the new schedule. Hope to hear more fill-ins. One of the best stopgap program ever, along with Bronwyn C.'s Pig Talk! I hope the fall schedule has all the Bronwyns and all the Jonathans.

Really enjoyed the last few weeks of your show, Jonathan. Hope to see you on the schedule again soon!

I'm sure I'll be filling in sooner rather than later!!

this might even be better than pig talk

I dunno, pigs talking is pretty cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm

Thanks for the great start to the set this afternoon! Both Haden's "For Turiya" and "Alla L'aa Ke" are compositions I know from other recordings / renditions, although both of these very nice versions are new to me. Digging the plucked strings connection weaving all these pieces together this afternoon.

Heya Jonathan and listeners. Been getting my fill of Williger in the last week or so!
Avatar 3:30pm

I agree with Carmichael re: Williger fill
nick o' the week:

I'm late to the Williger party but will def. be hitting up the archives. Enjoying the show!

Thanks Ben and Carmichael, and Will! Nick, there's a big gap of time in there, but I've had fun doing all of it. Enjoy.

Chagrined to have missed Toumani Diabate.

Makes me thirsty for a jinn and tonic.

Is there anything any WFMU DJ plays that does not inspire someone to drink or smoke up?

I would hope my show generally inspires the latter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm
Devin B.:

All music is stoner music

Glad we know what mics are being used so we can recreate this sometime.

Jake: I was told that when Kenny G. was on the air..numerous listeners gave up on the station and all sorts of chemicals and only listened to QXR whilst sipping Earl Grey and talking to their mothers?? That could be FMU apocrypha,???????

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm

At first I thought βrian said "djinn and tonic" and I wondered what kind of hallucinations drinking a djinn would cause.

I'll have what he's having.

Also, what they are having.

Djinn and tonic is a drink the folks from Wooden Shjips might enjoy.
Avatar 4:26pm

@ノk乇: djinn = jinn.

Ha, I've worked for Wooden Shjips for years, they deserve their own drink, but it would probably have to be dosed with tincture.
Avatar 4:31pm

They should've called this track Baby Monitor.

First time i tune in and.. what a treat! You got some great sounds flying around Jonathan!
Avatar 5:12pm

This is so beautiful! It's very multi sensory music. :D
Avatar 5:18pm

Jonathan, in the 90s Steve Thomsen from Solid Eye and I both sublet studio space from Joe Clower in downtown L.A..
I used to hear him composing/playing on the other side of the wall while I was painting. Wonderful to be reminded of that.

Glad to bring back some memories!

@βrian, so I missed your joke and tried to re-joke it? Apologies, my Anti-Don-Felder brother-in-arms! DESTRUCTION TO THE FELDER! [*thrusts arms out and around in the symbolic drawing-and-quartering-Don-Felder motion*]
