The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

  Mon. 12/22/08 3:45pm GP:

Good tidings to thee Paul the Postman.

  Mon. 12/22/08 3:45pm paulthepostman:

  Mon. 12/22/08 3:46pm annie:

only if you are the fool are you apart. otherwise you are a part
  Mon. 12/22/08 3:49pm Ken:

I liked the Greater Antilles Sampler. That is where I first heard Nick Drake and Fripp/Eno back in 1980
  Mon. 12/22/08 3:50pm annie:

sarah she could use a break, maybe she ran out of laudanum.
  Mon. 12/22/08 3:52pm Irene:

Same here! In the town of Morristown, NJ we had one small record shop-- Greymat Music. If they didn't stock it I didn't hear about it. I didn't have a lot of resources like magazines at hand (And the internet was just a gleam in someone's eye). The store buyer had good taste-- I found out about Pearls Before Swine, and a lot of Brit-Folk from them.
  Mon. 12/22/08 3:56pm Shannon:

Oh I love this - what's playing now. I hope this is Artisokka...
  Mon. 12/22/08 4:01pm paulthepostman:

ANNIE, YES, ha, morris men, sorry ...no but I cut a fine swath cavorting from the beer tent betwixt tent pegs and sober folks with a fine head of froth swaying precariously in a pint of fine ale being careful to draw the attention of the fine morris men ladys as I do so. Even if I say so myself.
  Mon. 12/22/08 4:10pm annie:

great days, those, eh PTP?
  Mon. 12/22/08 4:13pm paulthepostman:

The best annie.
  Mon. 12/22/08 4:14pm Thomas Truax:

Hi Irene,
Enjoying the show on line here in London, England. Perfect antidote to holiday insanity on Camden streets. It's night time here. Happy holidays to you!!

  Mon. 12/22/08 4:16pm annie:

  Mon. 12/22/08 4:26pm paulthepostman:

WHY does table football night have to fall on the first day of each week at about this time?
Always a pleasure to be on your musical wavelength however brief Irene.
Everyone, do something {special} this magical time of year, even if it just a small thing.
  Mon. 12/22/08 4:28pm annie:

  Mon. 12/22/08 4:30pm paulthepostman:

  Mon. 12/22/08 5:58pm Parq:

"Charlie Brown, you're the only person I know who could take a wonderful station like WFMU and turn it into a problem." I love how the dialog in that show is obviously spliced together from separate takes of a few words each.
  Mon. 12/22/08 5:59pm annie:

where did you hear that parq?
  Mon. 12/22/08 6:00pm Shannon:

Peace to you too, I! Thanks for the Christmas wishes and always-excellent tunes. *hugs*
  Mon. 12/22/08 6:03pm Parq:

Annie, are you still reading? Just listen to the thing. The edits - physical cuts in analog tape - are obvious.
