Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Solstice indeed 5:02 a.m. Eastern Monday
- which means this is the longest night before or near enuff !
& Solstice does mean Winter in the true Technical terms.
This is also Sun entering Capricorn : the Goat's long climb out of Darkness...
Though famously the Great Conjunction of Jupiter & Saturn - also tomorrow !! - happens with them both JUST having left Capricorn for Aquarius - &tc. !!!
All in all - a time for Endings - & slow methodical positive & idealistic Beginnings - in Cycles small to medium to very long in duration !

Hooray, I did not miss a Samantha fill-in!

Avatar 9:13pm Bergey:

I really liked it joe mulligan, each of them had a little moment they took to shine, although I was hoping Thom would bring more of a narrative to the lyrics. instead it became a bit vibe heavy, but a good vibe nonetheless

Soullllll-stice!

I don't think I've heard it yet @Joe

Not really familiar with Yorke except I have a lazy eye and he looks like he does too.
Avatar 9:18pm Samantha:

oooo lala! Heather and Faye big hugs. Thank you Joe!
Avatar 9:18pm Bergey:

like if the three of them were turned into a genre venn diagram they all met eachother in the middle instead of taking their most diverse sounds and slapping them together

hahaha @Bergey!
Avatar 9:19pm Bergey:

he's also the lead singer of Radiohead if that is a better reference point chresti
  9:21pm phat:

The Bee Gees are a theme in my life this week. I need to see that documentary. Also, I've never heard this Robin Gibb tune. It's definitely something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm chresti:

Have not listened to Radiohead, maybe saw them on MTV, back in the days I watched television.
Avatar 9:26pm Samantha:

I love Radiohead still
Avatar 9:28pm Bergey:

One of the funniest things about getting involved with WFMU was realizing how many people like you there are out there chresti. Loads of people on this station will recite tales about artists I've never even heard of and then turn around and say they've never heard of the Beatles!f

exaggerating but only slightly

Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 9:33pm karlward:

Oh hell yeah welcome back Samantha!
  9:34pm Wfmu listener P:

@Chestri the reason why there are stations like this, is because they are creating a nitch for listeners who have an open mind about music. As i have gotten older i want to hear a lot of stuff that is off the beaten path, or deep dives into groups whose song that does not get played too often or nit at all, or who are tired of the sane bullshit we hear in the radio day after day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Ignore Function:

I feel lucky I got t see Sun City Girls right near the end.

Avatar 9:39pm Bergey:

Its my favorite aspect of WFMU P, I've always known there must be others into the stranger side of music but untill finding WFMU I didn't know there was as much community around it (besides live shows). It's made me feel much less isolated
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 9:39pm karlward:

Hope we’re going to hear some Berliner field recordings
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm DjLorraine:

Listener P, yes indeed. Much respect for real music from all over.

hey Samantha and peeps, enjoying the cozy vibes. Good to hear you back on these 'airwaves' Samantha, your atmospheric dj style gets a great outing tonite! thanks for the surprise, good to hear you on a Sunday : )
  9:41pm Carmichael:

My FMU batting average is very low. I don’t know most of the artists, and for that I am thankful.

I look at it differently. I'm looking for talent, takin' notes.

@Bergey and a lot of the DJs on this staton know their music and are not afraid to take chances even if they fall flat on their face at times

  9:47pm phat:

This Rhiannon arrangement is inspired.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm Gaylord Fields:

@Little Danny: De-lurking to agree. Literally anyone these days can find obscure and seldom-heard music and play it if they had a mind to. What makes WFMU unique and wonderful isn't so much the "what" as it is the "how."
Avatar 9:49pm Bergey:

Great Set Samantha, everything I was talking about loving about WFMU, see you all at 10 ;)
  9:49pm Wfmu listener P:

@Littke Danny case in polnt sophisticated boom boom which has opened my mind to a lot of music by ladies that I would have never heard of before
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Mr. Pumpy:

I had to go food shopping (yes, also my favorite Sunday night activity!), so I missed a bunch of the show. Sounds amazing...and it looks like I missed some THINGS! Good stuff! You're killing it, Samantha!

I thinks it's about how the sets are curated. Sets curated by boffins digging the far corners of their particular realm. Finding the hidden gems for us.

I haven't listened to that Langley record in ages, and definitely not terribly closely. Thanks for playing it @Samantha

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Brian in UK says it in his profile blog : WFMU has a juvenile facade but it is radio that has grown up.
The Corporate market for Music changed over time - long enuff & gradually enuff to be the frog in boiling water so people didn't notice.
Then Technology & Interwebz upended everything too.
Basically - we're through with Top Down culture from lawyers & bankers who think good art goes with an ugly sofa...
