Listener comments!

  Sun. 4/19/09 7:05pm Paul:

Evenin, Mo,

This Machida cut reminds me of Harry Partch.
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:10pm texas scott:

hi,monica...and all the rest.
just got back from helping my bro,
plant his first vineyard!
planting in the dirt=therapy
kinda like this here radio programme!
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:11pm monica:

evenin', paul! yep, definitely has that klinging and klanging vibe. it's an album of steelpan improvisations.
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:11pm mark:

i like this song
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:11pm mike tp:

hello monica and fans of great radio sen harry partch performance at msu this past winter. tickets compliments of trouble
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:14pm Paul:

Mike TP,

Partch is still performing? Wow! Interesting that he got that same sound as the steel pan by striking big glass bells!
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:17pm anhelo:

oh my god that song indang pariaman i love it, you just made my day !
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:18pm mike tp:

hey paul harry is dead. t scott i love grapes my grandad had a big grapevine grapes are the best
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:20pm texas scott:

mike tp,did he make wine?
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:21pm monica:

hey texas scott, great to have you back! we got worried bout you last week. hey mark, the city center CD just came into the station is coll throughout. our music director describes it as arthur russell meets panda bear. ola, mike tp and anhelo! that big blood track is practically like a standard at wfmu now...
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:21pm Chad:

Yo, Monica -- can you tell me where I might download/pay to download a copy of that Big Blood track? That was gorgeous.
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:26pm texas scott:

thanks,monica.

i missed you guys.
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:27pm monica:

hey chad! can't say as i know off hand. you might see if there are any big blood downloads on the wfmu blog or just google artist name and song title in google.
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:29pm Chad:

Yep, tried Googlin'. I check the blog, though. I'll probably whine if I can't find it again. :) THANKS for playing it, I haven't heard it before now and I'm a pretty avid listener. Do you know anything about Big Blood? Americans? Other country? Young? Old? Captivating.
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:35pm Joe:

You can find a whole ton of free Big Blood downloads on the new FMA: http://freemusicarchive.org/search/?quicksearch=&search-artist=big+blood&search-curator=&search-license=

Not this song...yet! But maybe eventually.
Great show, Monica, as always.

  Sun. 4/19/09 7:49pm texas scott:

  Sun. 4/19/09 7:49pm miketp:

  Sun. 4/19/09 7:53pm Gary Martin:

Hey dj Monica!!! I had a little more to say than there was space here so i sent you an email regarding Fellini. Great music as always. Listener gary
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:53pm CB2:

Lazy Bones Japanes version was so wonderful - made me want to go cat fishing.

So glad Texas Scott is back and well- did you bring back any wine with you? White or red?

CB1 - next time try using a CD and not a DVD. works fine.
  Sun. 4/19/09 7:59pm SeanG:

  Sun. 4/19/09 8:04pm Renee Z:

Baking a batch of cookies and this Stevie W just makes me feel so good.

A hot plate of cookies, a glass of milk and Ms. Monica - grooving to the good ol' times.
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:06pm Kris:

I appreciate your really satisfying well managed playlists and I tend to think it's because you're a girl (i'm a girl)
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:09pm ken in denver:

Hi Monica,

Really good show as usual. I especially dug Diamond Center.
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:10pm texas scott:

i just cancelled my myspace account

my only social networking is wfmu.

i like talking to strangers.
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:11pm Websie:

hey Mo, I use F'book... But I find almost no one under age 35 wants to plan anything more than 20 minutes in advance, so it's of limited usefulness!
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:11pm Little Fyodor:

Just joined Facebook yesterday!!! Been on MySpace for a while and didn't think I could afford more time on another such thang, but various factors led me to reconsider. Now my life is way too complicated, but I guess that's the modern world...
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:13pm Parq:

Miss Monica, the FMU playlist comment page *is* a social networking site -- somewhat, I know, to the consternation of some staffers who were hoping for hundreds of different commenters per show. As for the more traditional SNWSs, I use Facebook, where I have a WFMU photo album, but that's about it. Just not a viable candidate for Twitter and the like.
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:14pm miketp:

got more than i can handle from the fmu universe fmu keeps me busy. oh my dad loves jimmy durante
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:15pm Websie:

Durante -- there's a man who never said "Text me later."
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:15pm Dagmar De Witt:

TS is so on it!!!

I am terrified by Facebook and twittering. Cell phones and texting are crazy enough. ( as if I even know how to text???)

When one is as well known as we all are, why do we need a larger social network?

As Mr. J D says - "the song should come from the heart!".
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:15pm Dagmar:

Monica,

Great story in NY Times Mag today called Let Them Eat Tweets. It included the following (by Emily Dickinson) " How public - like a frog - / To tell one's name - the livelong June - / To an admiring Bog!". Says it all.

Right on Texas Scott . . .
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:17pm Dagmar Paley:

Excuse me, Ms DeWitt, but I believe your name is Fiona!
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:18pm anh:

i like more using flickr to find people, to share artwork, i find it more productive. I use facebook only when i'm really bored. And only to take a silly quiz.
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:18pm sugarwolf:

My computer is too old and tired for facebook.

I joined the myspace/facebook for knitters/crocheters, Ravelry.
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:19pm Parq:

If Helen Traubel had a show on FMU, would she be DJ Traubel? This is the Old Fashioned World!
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:19pm Fiona DeWitt:

Pardon ne moi!

Ms. Fudgie made me do it.
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:20pm SeanG:

I just use WFMU, but thinking of trying out Twitter-just purchased a turntable this week, it's awesome--that's hilarious Parq
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:20pm mike tp:

parq that was a good one
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:21pm fudgie dellamoor:

take a powder,fi fi!
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:22pm Websie:

yay, Uncle Remus into Steve Allen.
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:22pm miketp:

monica you play cool tunes
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:24pm CB1:

God, I thought that was the Ventures, probably the first music I ever became away of.
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:29pm mike tp:

itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini is my earliest tune i may have ever heard
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:32pm CB1:

Mike tp, Do you remember One-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eater?
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:32pm CB2:

Mike TP

I HATE U!
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:35pm miketp:

cb1 yeah im 56 all the 50s music then the beatles and we know what happened next
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:42pm miketp:

cb2 hates too strong for me. steppin aside
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:42pm ?:

Twitter = Hoola Hoop
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:42pm CB2:

have to add that my message did not say - "I HATE U - because that is not MY earliest music memory!"

I wish I could say so.
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:44pm ken in denver:

Hey Fyodor, I think I used to do a show next to yours on KGNU in the early '80s.
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:47pm miketp:

cb2 i feel better im the sensitive type
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:48pm monica:

hey there kris and ken in denver! you too, websie! and ltlle fyodor...ynd i see you ?...fudgie, fiona, dag, Sean G.... and thank you all for sharing yer social networking habits... i'm new to it and a bit shy and unknowledgable about how to use...
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:49pm CB2:

I agree that "hate" is too strong - not the best on the compturing. Hit the button too soon.

My first remembrance is Tennessee Ernie Ford - singing "Sixteen Tons" in a rocking chair on black and white TV.

Sometimes "cute" doesn't work.

Mea culpa!
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:51pm CB1:

CB2 - I remember TE Ford doing 16 Tons. Why would he sing that in a rocker, anyway?
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:52pm cheri:

heeey there monica---i wanna give a shout out to my friends dawn & diamond=)=)=) thnx monica
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:55pm cheri:

monica play the cake on next weeks show PLEASE,, ty agian monica
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:56pm Cb2:

That was his "schtick" ( I don't know how to spell it), but he loved to sing rocking on the front porch - it's a southern/country thang.
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:57pm CB1:

Oh, I thought maybe he was just pooped from all that "loadin"
  Sun. 4/19/09 8:58pm Parq:

Miss Mon, this Gladys takes me straight back to high school, and I wouldn't wish that on anybody.
  Sun. 4/19/09 9:00pm Parq:

Ah, not Gladys. Coulda fooled me. Did, in fact.
  Tue. 6/9/09 2:41pm Melissa:

OMG, I just came across your play list & I notice that my aunt & cousin singing group from back in the days are on your playlist. The Mosby family singers.
I can't belive how young they were.
