A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Later, Lux.......fuck it....Sux, sux, sux....
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:16am dale:

that last number sounded like the opening strains of 'You Only Live Twice" , which was borrowed from something else which escapes me....
A crisp good morning!
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:16am sebastian:

good morning troubled friends
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:23am listener mark:

I'm not troubled. I'm modern.
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:24am detroitdave:

More CRAMPS.....EVEN BETTER!!!
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:24am ForeignInternet Listener C:

I am in fact crying 96 tears from 96 eyes. Later, Lux.
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:26am Lou:

Rock my morning Cramps-style

How about some Boston rock...Volcano Suns reissues?

Spreading Red Sox love to you
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:26am fishmonkeystew:

So glad I got a chance to see The Cramps play (back in '94 at Lupo's in Providence, RI). A life changing show.

Good morning, Trouble and all!
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:26am Pip:

I'm blue (gong gong) its really friggin cold in the UK
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:27am dale:

if you like a touch of goth with your country check out a documentary called "In Search of the Wrong Eyed Jesus."

Lux Means Bucks, Remember the Name!
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:37am 55ffrr:

Good morning trouble & modern ones. Drove to work in Buffalo this morning at a whopping -6 degrees F. That's right, F!
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:39am annie:

i woke up to a balmy 1 degree bright sunshine promising a wonderful day...
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:40am listener mark:

Just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed
that with the sun's love
in the spring
becomes the rose
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:42am dc pat:

Cheers to Lux -- one of my all time faves...
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:42am annie:

i look out my back window and see the piles of undisturbed snow, i'm sure a couple feet by now, and imagine the activity that is happening.. and know this!: the maple syrup people are out now....reading for the flow of sap.
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:43am hazmania:

BTW - Ace put out a compilation of ALL female rockabilly titled Good Girls Gone Bad. Very good and I believe it contains all the songs Sparkle Moore ever recorded in pristine sound. 5 Star.
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:44am Parq:

Poor ol' Lux. He was actually older than I thought. I wouldn't have figured him for out of his 50s.
  Thu. 2/5/09 9:54am dc pat:

I have that GGGB disk. Sparkle Moore rules the earth.

"warten und hoffen (wishin' and hopin')" by marion merz

I never though German could sound so sexy.

Bizarre mix of music. Love it.

Takes my mind off the miserable cold snow here in Tamworth, UK.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:02am dc pat:

just what is a "pre-existing heart condition?"
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:04am PMD:

Trouble, I completely agree. I won't let people copy my cd's and I won't copy theirs, especially for the small labels as you say. Like Big Blood's cd.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:05am PMD:

Annie, do you make maple syrup? I'd die for some homemade stuff... Had it ONCE manymany moons ago. Amazing.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:06am Eddy J:

Trouble, I so want to give it to you
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:06am SeanG:

Any library workers out there?
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:06am annie:

when i loan out cds i ask that they not be copied.
PMD- i do not make it but i live in the heart of sryup country.. can send you??
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:07am Lewis:

You are not alone - I agree especially with small labels and living artists.

I also try to support my local independent music store (which has unparalleled service and can get all kinds of off the wall stuff I might add!)
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:07am annie:

the only person who gets away with calling me anne-louise is my mother and i even cringe when she does that. although the name is beautiful!
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:08am dc pat:

I didn't get where I am today without working in a bunch of libraries.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:09am mudflap:

I agree with you on downloading Trouble! I download to get a taste of new music- if I like it I buy the CD. When Napster came out my music purchases went up about 500%. I also download music I already own, as it's easier for me than ripping my CD's to get them in an MP3 player.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:09am Mac:

Hi Liz:
I try to support my local 'record' shop. I even ask for special orders, but recently I have been buying stuff on itunes as it is the only way I can get the imports I want. I do notice the poor sound quality from itunes, but i am stuck. As far as copying, I do do mix CDs for friends who would never hear this music otherwise (except, maybe, on FMU).
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:09am Eddy J:

I did, and I still work at a Library
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:13am GP:

Anyone here try those USB turntables that allow you to convert vinyl to MP3? Woot:
http://www.woot.com/
has one as their daily special today but it looks kind of cheesy.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:13am texas scott:

Hey trouble.I dl the old,odd,and/or unusual.
I buy the new stuff.
Forgive eddy j,unless that's your hubby.
;)
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:17am PMD:

Annie you are a sweetheart! You know someone - you got connectsions? Wow... yes - we should talk or something. I have to run to a meeting now and won't be back beofre this show is over, but I'll catch you on another show.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:18am Cecile:

I remember being really, really stoned at the one Detroit Cramps show I went to in '83 and it being one of the very best shows I ever saw.

In fact, iirc WFMU's own Rob Weisberg was there.

I missed them the following year because I think I had alcohol poisoning. Or at least it felt like it. I heard Lux took off his pants. Damn.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:20am annie:

word up PMD, i'll make anote of it..
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:21am Cecile:

GP: I want one, but no, no direct experience yet.

Trouble: I dare you to follow this with Boom by Flight of the Conchords. ;D
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:22am dale:

re: turntable. If you already have a turntable and amp or receiver just go to Radio Shack and get a patch cable. It's two RCA plugs into an 1/8 inch stereo plug. There's free software at Version Tracker.com. The more expensive ION turntable with the built in burner would be the easiest way to go, though
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:22am dc pat:

Didn't Lux take his pants off at every show? He did at every show I saw...and every show blew the roof off the place. What's poor Poison Ivy going to do??
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:22am BSI:

I caught the Cramps/Butthole Surfers/Dead Milkmen show at Warner Theater (DC) ... new years eve, 1988 or 89... Surfers had the whole multi-films & Gibby's lighter-fluid/hi-hat explosions thing, Cramps were fiercely awesome... Many of us still have delightful scars from that show.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:22am dale:

Sonny and Cher?
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:24am GP:

Thanks Dale...yeah WOOT has the ION today for about $55 including shipping....must.......restrain........wallet.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:26am dale:

GP, don't do it, for $55 it must be a horrible cartridge and stylus
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:27am Vivian:

I saw the Cramps in Atlanta 94? 93? I remember Lux in latex & stilletos, perched on top of the speakers. A guy dancing next to me vomited, turned to me, shrugged his shoulders and continued to dance.
Great show.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:28am Doug from DC:

GP, I got the Numark TT-USB, and am not thrilled with it. I found that the codec it comes with doesn't support control of the input gain. If you connect to it with Audacity, the control for this is disabled. Instead, there's a little black knob labeled "gain" on the bottom of the unit, next to the USB port. And no mention of this in the manual. The knob does work, with some patience. I like Dale's suggestion.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:29am hazmania:

Lux would usually be down to his heels and g-string by the fifth song here ('cause it's hot) in Dallas. Saw a more "gentle" BHS show this winter in Dallas - no pyrotechnics and Gibby's parents seated in the balcony. I guess you can't go home again!
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:29am Lucky:

It's a sticky issue. I can really see how downloading provides access to music that may, otherwise, never be reissued. At the same time, sites providing music for free limit the ability for a CD reissue to break even. Personally, I would prefer to have the CD, but I think I would also rather hear certain music than never have the chance to. Then there is the moral labyrith of who's really making money (ie: ESP Records). Oy!

But the artist (or their descendants) should get paid.

I also hate how its effecting retailers. I'm sad to see indy record stores go down. It's not right.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:30am zoot:

For Vinyl to MP3 or CD, Griffin Technologies makes a little $35 doodad called the iMic. Hook it up to your amplifier and turntable via RCA jacks, and you're all set. I've been converting for quite a few years. It's quel swell.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:31am DJ Icepack:

Dear Mom

I love your music. I think your show is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:32am annie:

zoot, does that require any software download?
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:32am GP:

Thanks everyone for the advice and Dale, my wallet thanks you!
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:33am dc pat:

OK, it's easy to get LPs on your PC but what software do you all use?
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:33am hazmania:

Pro-ject makes a true audiophile USB turntable (3 bills.) I personally use my old turntable with ARTcessories USB Phono Plus interface. It does everything (including line level for cassettes and a headphone amp) for well under a hundred if you shop a little.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:34am BSI:

hazmania:
that sounds desperately sad, somehow... they were doing Locust Abortion Technician material at that BHS/Cramps show, & the lighter-fluid/hi-hat thing was seriously freaking out the folks at the Warner, looking at these old tapestries over the stage that were rather flammable...
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:34am BSI:

...referring to previous hazmania BHS comment, that is.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:35am Carmichael:

Good morning, all. Following the Lux Interior convo, I hung out with them both several times back in '70s, and saw them again about 7 months ago playing here in Sacramento. We met at a funky old record store run by an old guy named Ed that knew every single song from every single genre. He was amazing.

You can't play enough Cramps.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:36am zoot:

Annie, I use Cakewalk Pyro software, but I think there may be some freeware available.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:37am Doug in DC:

I saw the Cramps at Ontario Theatre in DC back in 1980. It was crazy, Lux was shirtless in black leather pants, running around the stage, moaning and making noises into a mic he had in his mouth.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:38am hazmania:

BSI - I think all indoor pyrotechnics are now banned. They did use them at a free outdoor show I saw five years ago. They did keep the three big video screens so it wasn't at all bad. Just not the same. I have seen them consistantly as a local band since 84.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:40am dale:

I use an old one called Coaster. If money were no object I'd just buy a CD recorder made by Sony or Philips
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:40am hazmania:

Annie, look into Spin It Again on-line. It's cheap and flexible (automatic track splitting, click reduction, re-equalization, etc. )
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:41am dale:

Oh, and I just record single songs...I've never done an album in one sittting. I don't know what's best to do that. maybe someone can enlighten?
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:42am annie:

cool, thanks..
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:45am zoot:

It's easy to do an entire album, just remember to separate the tracks. Best not to use the noise reduction; you'll lose some fidelity and that vinyl feel.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:46am dc pat:

Ah, that's the problem==whole album. It's a pain in the ass tomake separate files out of each tune. That's why I've only done 2 LPs so far.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:48am zoot:

I've done about 300 albums. Just read a good book and listen to the album whilst recording.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:49am hazmania:

That's why I like Spin It Again so much. It gets the tracks split in 10 seconds and is spot on 90% of the time. You just have to move the markers to get it perfect. You're done in less than 2 minutes
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:49am Doug from DC:

Audacity lets you insert track labels and run a single export that creates all the tracks as separate files using the label name. The interface is a little clunky, but I've gotten used to it.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:50am Doug from DC:

There's also an auto-identify function, but I'm kind of a control freak about that.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:50am risky!:

RIP LUX INTERIOR!! Morning All!
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:50am hazmania:

Trouble, tell your guest I will buy this album ASAP (just as I have their entire catalog.)
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:51am annie:

yup, i downloaded audacity... just haven't hooked everything up.. still techno-scared to attempt it...
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:51am annie:

yup, i downloaded audacity... just haven't hooked everything up.. still techno-scared to attempt it...
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:53am Carmichael:

I've had a program for years called CD Recorder. I bought it at Best Buy for under $20. I record whole album sides, and it has an adjustable feature that will find every pause between sounds. You can choose to mark or delete each pause. It works great. I have my Technics SL Q2 fully automatic direct drive quartz lock turntable that I bought in 1979, and I use an old Radio Shack amp that I've had even longer. Works great for me.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:55am Parq:

I was just gonna ask you about Audacity, Annie. I'm still game to give it a try, although I find that the Mac versions of audio freeware are less facile than their PC equivalents (over to you, Ike).
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:55am dc pat:

hmm I've used Audacity to record me but not anything else. I'll try.
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:56am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Thu. 2/5/09 10:58am GP:

Has anyone seen that movie; "Cadillac Records"? Any good?
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:00am Parq:

Miss T, hope you're proud of your young man and his devotion to your show. My daughter would have skated her Razor scooter off a bridge before she would have said nice things about my music at that age.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:00am Bennett:

Trouble, just in case you haven't seen, or don't have, this one: How Our Birds Sing Vol. 1
Here: http://closetcurios2.blogspot.com/2009/01/how-our-birds-sing-vol-1.html
Happy listening!
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:00am Cecile:

Dunno, but Etta James is already lobbing barbs at Beyonce.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:03am Cecile:

I wouldn't say the smaller labels are better.
Lots of artists are trying to get paid from Ace and Charley.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:03am GP:

Thanks Michael and Trouble for some great selections today.
Michael please put up some contact info...website?
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:04am BSI:

I'll vouch for Audacity but I've only used it as a cheap remastering device for my own stuff. Fades & cuts & levels & whatnot. And it runs well on my mac...
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:04am Cecile:

But I APPLAUD your guest Michael for doing the right thing.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:04am texas scott:

Hey GP
"Cadillac Records" is interesting in a historical type of movie but ,I was unhappy with the Etta portrayal.Thought it was pretty weak.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:06am Carmichael:

Etta's just protecting her turf. The new young soul singers are re-doing all the old classics, or mashing them into hip-hop.I had to suffer through Radio Disney last night while transporting my daughter somewhere. You wouldn't believe what they're doing to our beloved classics .... (sob)
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:07am Doug:

Cecile - what are you referring to, re: Etta james / Beyonce' - has she said things in the press about Beyonce's portrayal, or the singin at the Inauguration?
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:08am Cecile:

Etta's been mouthing off about the inauguration.

I can't say that I disagree that much with her.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:09am Numero:

Michael works here: www.numerogroup.com
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:10am Carmichael:

Anybody having a volume problem? I have my speakers craked up pretty high, and it still sounds muddy.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:10am annie:

fine here charmichael
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:11am Doug:

Carmichael - Now the general public has to suffer thru not only radio Disney, but now, Disney Eggs - saw it the other day in the store. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbuXOopbWcE
Cecile - i wouldnt disagree either. Plus, all the people they could have had sing "Change is Gonna Come", and they pick that king of soul Jon Bon Jovi ?
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:11am GP:

LOL Carmichael...Radio Disney...I can totally relate with my two daughters..first thing they ask for in the car that or the local Clear Channel top-40 stuff....arghh

Thanks Numero for the info.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:13am annie:

glad i had my son when i did, i am not at all able to stomach this new kind of children's "entertainment".
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:14am Cecile:

I think if I had the wee ones, they would be watching Kipper all the time. It's so old fashioned, sweet and has a nice jazz soundtrack.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:15am Cecile:

Doug - I have to agree. I mean, I can see an impenetrable music like free jazz or moderm composition needing a contemporary translator - but for a direct, simple music like soul? If you have one, you should be able to get it. Sigh.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:19am dale:

this version of hey joe is great!
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:26am annie:

cecile, this is for you.

  Thu. 2/5/09 11:29am Bad Ronald:

I love Kipper, Kipper the dog!

thanks, Annie, LOL!
I think I was thinking the fast, repetitive thoughts that make you down. I'll have to change it up a bit.

GP, when my daughter was grade-school age, I aways let her listen to whatever she wanted in the car. My dad always did that with me, and I know that it couldn't have been easy for him sometimes.

Once, we were in the car and I had Terre T's show on. The kid was silent for a bit, gazing at the radio thoughtfully. After a minute or so, she reached over and turned up the volume. That's my girl!

We used to party down with the Wiggles, until Greg left. Then it was Zoey 101, until another of the Spears clan got knocked up. We're currently into Zach & Cody, with some Wizards of Waverly Place thrown in for good measure.

wooohoo!! great story parq. i followed the same practice and look what happened!! i love independant thought !!
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:34am Chris:

amazing stuff but man is it low-fi
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:35am GP:

Carmichael..sounds very similar..although we are more partial to Sponge Bob and the stuff on Nick.
Parq, I can relate to that also, same thing with my Dad. I will occasionally put in one of CD's to see what they think...they did get hooked on the "Corn Weenie" song from Ken's show and now that song has spread throughout the junior high.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:37am Parq:

GP, great stuff. One of my wife's old co-workers had turned the title of a low-tier children's book from their company - "Time for Ferrets!" -- into a catch phrase. My daughter picked up on that in 7th grade, and soon the whole class was saying it.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:42am GP:

Time for Ferrets//LOL, need to use that one!

Man, this Syl Johnson has me movin! Let you funk flag flay, freaks!
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:42am dc pat:

I always find that good old-school punk works great with the kids. "C'MON! C'mon! 'urry up 'arry Come on!" the Ramones are #1 in my house but one tune the kids are constantly singing is the Clash's version of Junko Partner. My 2 year old asked me the other day "Daddy, what is loaded?"
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:42am GP:

flay = fly!
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:45am Parq:

Pat: and you told him - - - ?
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:45am Bad Ronald:

Dat true DCP my kids have turned me from a casual listener to a rabid Ramones freak!
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:45am dc pat:

"Feelin' GOOOOD!"
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:45am Parq:

GP: I liked "flay" better.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:46am Don Cornelius:

Does anyone else here miss "SoulTrain"?
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:47am dc pat:

That's funny Bad Ron, me too. I kind of blew them off when I was young--not hardcore enough or something.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:47am Carmichael:

Yeah, the Clash! My kids like the 101ers' "Key to Your Heart" and "Rockin' the Casbah". Also the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated" has them curiously confused, so I must be doing something right.

i sure do don... trouble, this show has been great for the kind of morning it has turned out to be.. i am so much more productive listening to FMU. now if FB would just stop logging me out each time i post something....
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:48am Carmichael:

I think everyone could benefit from listening to Swamp Dogg.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:49am GP:

Whooo....sing it Arlene!
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:50am dc pat:

Hil-fuckin-larious!!! Bad Ron, is that your kid??
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:50am annie:

when my son started listening to music on his own, when he was about 6, i learned to love fat boys.. i still do!
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:51am Bad Ronald:

No, not mine. I stumbled across the vid yesterday...
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:53am GP:

Kids got Rock Band for Christmas, my little daughters new favorite song..."Gimme Shelter". "Blitzkrieg Bop" is also a popular one. They love playing drums on that one.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:54am dc pat:

jeezus, if my kid was acting like that I'd be scared...It's funny as hell when he sits up and roars out of the blue.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:54am GP:

Bad Ron, Is that that kid that was on the Nitrous? Can't watch the vids at work, but I head about that story.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:55am annie:

bummer, the link does not work for me..
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:55am dc pat:

annie, don't include the "= loaded"
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:56am Parq:

Miss T, don't worry, we're still paying attention. Great soul stuff. This "Hold My Head Up High" is inspiring.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:56am Evan:

Greetings from LA...

Never heard of "Kipper," but I have a 19-month old, and sounds like she might like it. She really likes this folky musician named Elizabeth Mitchell.

The kid after the dentist vid is hilarious. "Why is this happening?"
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:58am Cecile:

Evan, I think she would - it's a sweet cartoon about a puppy and his little friends. They all have charming British accents, and it's taken at a nice slow pace. Very relaxing, even for people who have long passed toddlerhood.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:58am Bad Ronald:

Yeah GP
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:59am GP:

The kiddos would like this Jersey Slide song.
  Thu. 2/5/09 11:59am annie:

wow, is this real life?
  Thu. 2/5/09 12:00pm Carmichael:

Come to think of it, the kids do like Sam and Dave. All is not lost.

Re: Woot's USB turntable offer

You get what you pay for. It is about as cheesy as they come.

The Ion iPTUSB has a ceramic cartridge with is very rough on your vinyl and has a narrower frequency response than a magnetic cartridge.

A plastic platter and no anti-skate adjustment round out the package.

As Dale suggested, any analog turntable can become a USB turntable fairly easily.

If you want to save some $$$, buy a good analog turntable used and digitize it from there.
