hello Jonathan & Scraps & invisible others
  Swag For Life Member 12:12am Jonathan:

Howdy Coelacantho, Scraps. Glad to have you here!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15am Scraps:

h’lo coelacanthØ, h’lo Jonathan. I am also invisible.
  12:22am rw:

Howdy! Teetering on the edges of invisibility here. This MRA monologue is pretty ominous though I'm not sure I understand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23am Scraps:

Levels and Degrees of Light came out in 1968, he said helpfully
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24am Scraps:

The Bird Song gets more ominous, in the next twenty minutes.....
  Swag For Life Member 12:27am Jonathan:

IF only we could experience the brilliance of the whole thing - honestly dealingn with some turntable troubles but think I've got them figured out, smooth sailing ahead!
  Swag For Life Member 12:53am Jonathan:

Monday night raga for everyone
  12:57am Fashion Tashjian:

Hey John & Co. Sorry but I've been occupied with moving into a new apartment and our wifi ain't set up yet. But, ever the listener on mobile.
  1:04am rw:

Anyone know what qualifies a raga as morning or evening? I've always wondered.
  1:06am rw:

If I had to guess, I'd call Raga Ooty as evening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07am Aitch:

Sounds like he's sucking, not blowing? Like Jackson Jeffrey Jackson.
Avatar 1:08am coelacanth∅:

the main thing, rw, is absorbancy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10am Aitch:

Morning and evening relative anyhow, depends where you are.
  Swag For Life Member 1:11am Jonathan:

I think its mostly a feel thing, but I could be wrong. Could have something to do with the variances of scales used for each.
  Swag For Life Member 1:11am Jonathan:

This is a deep nighttime raga for sure.
  1:27am rw:

Hey thanks for filling in tonight Mr. Williger. I wish there were a few more shows that sounded like this on the WFMU schedule. Not complaining, really. Just saying. There are a ton of really great shows and incredible DJs on this and on the streams.
  Swag For Life Member 1:30am Jonathan:

Thanks rw, that means a lot. Its a pleasure to fill in for Jesse, who I admire as a DJ a lot. There really is so much talent on the air!!
Avatar 1:31am grtyvr:

Hi folks, what did I miss? Lot's it seems. Will have to replay this tomorrow!
  Swag For Life Member 1:32am Jonathan:

The important thing is you're here now, grtyvr. Welcome.
Avatar 1:33am grtyvr:

thanks
Avatar 1:34am grtyvr:

hey rw, hey scraps, hey cole...
  1:37am rw:

Frow Show is great. I feel lucky to be on the west coast so I can listen live at a more or less reasonable hour.

Hey grtyvr!
Avatar 1:40am grtyvr:

rw, I am with you on the "more of this" thing.... love the sounds...
  1:41am rw:

Oh, and Jonathan while I'm here, did the turntable issues have anything to do with the sound on the Muhal Richard Abrams track? It seemed to be crapping out a little. I was wondering if it was the levels on the original recording or something in playback.
  Swag For Life Member 1:42am Jonathan:

Yeah, the counterweights were a bit off, an easy fix but it caught me off guard when I first got in.
  1:44am rw:

Cool. Thanks. I'm going to look that record up. I kind of want to hear the whole thing.
  2:04am isavedlatin:

Jonathan- I took tickets with you at the record fair. This is the *second* time I have caught your show incidentally. It is uniformly excellent!
  Swag For Life Member 2:06am Jonathan:

Yes!! I remember. Glad you've been able to catch it randomly, that's great. Hope yr good.
  2:08am isavedlatin:

thank you- likewise!
Avatar 2:19am coelacanth∅:

my time has come. Thank you Jonathan Very Excellent program!
g'night all
  Swag For Life Member 2:22am Jonathan:

Thanks for listening in, godspeed on your inner journey.
  2:40am katharsis:

Hey all. Thanks for the soundtrack. I’m doing some hard writing. At least there is music.
  2:57am MariaAldrey:

Love it <3
  Swag For Life Member 2:58am Jonathan:
