Charles Mingus said jazz was a word invented to separate musicians from their money. Music for a Free World brings us together, drawing listeners to the healing power of smooth free jazz. Each week, surprise guests bring their own sides to spin and their instruments of choice to spontaneously jam.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Doug Schulkind:

I love to visit Sardinia, but I hear it's very crowded.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm Linda Lee:

Sounds like your friend is taunting you @LL
Avatar 2:39pm northguineahills:

in grad school, I slept from about 4-7am, by my late 20s, I needed 5 hours sleep. By my late-30s, I (should have needed) 7.75 hrs of sleep. Now, I sleep in 1-2 hr shifts and get close to 8 hrs, total.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Linda Lee:

indeed! she tells me i'd best just suck it up.
she's been too long in scotland.
  2:42pm Reuben Radding:

  2:45pm Reuben Radding:

You're a good man, Sewelson!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Linda Lee:

just 'cos he can roll out of bed & be in switzerland..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm chresti:

Hah, if we could get there, he wouldn't be able to get us to leave.
Avatar 2:49pm coelacanth∅:

okay i had to get up from supine to say my first guess and that's all it is is that a bull fiddle has something to do with the size -either of it's body or of it's tone...like the bullfrog, which is bigger and deeper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Linda Lee:

serve him right!
frankly, i think that's what my friend in edinburgh is worried about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Linda Lee:

i'll have to make clear to her that i'm aiming south!
Avatar 2:51pm coelacanth∅:

very interesting about the gamba
Avatar 2:52pm geezerette:

Nicole Mitchell was recently hired to run the Jazz Dept. here at the Univ. of Pittsburgh. She is replacing the beloved Geri Allen, who died too soon (after Geri had replaced Nathan Davis, who founded the department 30+ years ago).

david w you is prescient
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Jeff Golick:

Q: Should I, an ignoramus, attempt to fix a light fixture/ceiling fan in my apt.?
Avatar 3:31pm geezerette:

!!! :D
  3:32pm Michael Monhart:

enjoying the show!
Avatar 3:35pm coelacanth∅:

Jeff can you turn off the circuit?
Avatar 3:37pm geezerette:

Drummer Stream is a mind-blowing necessity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Jeff Golick:

Yeah.
Avatar 3:40pm coelacanth∅:

Jeff i'm an ignoramus in some major ways, ways that have made my Life somewhat of a shambles
but i can fix things
what's wrong with the fixture?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Jeff Golick:

It's a remote controlled fan, and the remote don't work. There's a wall switch, which turns the light and fan on, and off—light and fan are one unit—but the remote (which controls fan speed and light) doesn't do anything. New battery. Have tried the basic "re-pairing" sequence, to no avail.

This feels sacrilegious, in light (ahem) of the artistry on display.
Avatar 3:55pm coelacanth∅:

hmm that remote business is beyond me, sorry. i mean replacing batteries, resetting it and cleaning the sender and the receiver on the unit is about all i know.
and sometimes the sender just fails. maybe call the company?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Doug Schulkind:

I gotta run, Dave and Freeworlders. I am doing a soundcheck with the new Drummer Stream DJ Gina who will be launching her new show on the stream next week (with a sneak preview) and in two weeks with the premiere broadcast. Listen for SOMEDAY MATINEE with GINA BACON, here on Give the Drummer Radio, following Music For a Free World!!!
Avatar 4:01pm northguineahills:

Thanks, @coel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm Jeff Golick:

Ok, I now see that William O. Smith is different from William E. Smith (co-founder of Sackville), but, confusingly, both played with Brubeck back in the day.
Avatar 4:19pm Dave Sewelson:

Jeff..don't wear socks on a ladder
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Jeff Golick:

What's a ladder?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm Doug Schulkind:

Haha! I'm back. The soundcheck went great. The new show is ready to go next week, 5-7pm (ET) here on el Stream del Drummer!
Avatar 4:25pm Dave Sewelson:

Is there a preview of the show today? Yes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Doug Schulkind:

No, the preview is next week. It will run for an hour, from 5-6pm (ET). Just to work out all the kinks and make sure things are operating with smoovity. The show will then debút on May 25, 5-7pm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Jeff Golick:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Jeff Golick:
