  Wed. 3/16/11 12:08pm HΘRNΣT MΘNTANA:

Gottschalk was the duke of Benevento from 740
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:10pm Cecile:

MN Jeff, that's a great animation!
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:10pm DJ KG:

is that hannah montana on my playlist?

hello, everyone!!
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:11pm 37:

  Wed. 3/16/11 12:12pm donna harle:

what was that just playing?
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:12pm BodegaMan:

checking in. The Bach selections were great.

hello fellow MM listeners.
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:14pm TheodoreRoosevelt:

This is my first time listening! AMAZING so far!
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:15pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Hey Kurt! Great selections for this drippy, overcast day. Your last program of this winter. Next week will be SPRING! Ahh...
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:17pm Nathan:

Don't really mind the "WE" thing.. I mean if you're playing music and say "we're going to follow that" I would think you're referring to your listeners as "WE" are on this journey together... :)
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:18pm BodegaMan:

more than other shows, I think that the weather and Kurt's mood dictate the content.

totally un-provable dribble, but that's how I feel.
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:19pm HøRNET MøNTANA:

"Gottschalk was a vigorous and original thinker, but also of a violent temperament, incapable of discipline or moderation in his ideas as in his conduct."
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:20pm Nathan:

Weather is the same here in London, the clouds tiring of merely hogging our sun have decided to come down and ruin our lives on the ground.
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:25pm DJ KG:

Theodore Roosevelt! Weocome to the show! Happy I could play some contemporary things for you.

Hanna Montana, are you reading my mail?

Nathan, good point.

Bodega, Wendy and everyone, thanks for the kind words.
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:28pm HŏRNξT MŏNTANA:

Your mail? Hardly.
"A pious and god-fearing man, Gottschalk often accompanied missionaries on their work and augmented their message with his own explanations and instructions."
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:28pm DJ KG:

  Wed. 3/16/11 12:33pm Carmichael:

OK, this broad's driving me nuts. Be back in a minute ....
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:34pm HŏRNξT MŏNTANA:

"Gottschalk experienced separation from his body and was received to the afterlife by two angels. He was shown a vision of purgatory and then Heavenly Jerusalem - but was not allowed to set foot in it. Instead, he returned to his body."
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:35pm CLAUDIO:

very good radio Thanks from Italy
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:35pm Handsome Harry:

I personally don't mind the "we."

"Wee-wee," on the other hand, I do not care for.
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:37pm dc pat:

I think I'm with the DJ, too many people use "we" in this way. Like, "we have to go wee-wee" or "we just vomited into the big phone"
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:38pm dc pat:

what's wrong with a little "I"?
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:38pm Hincmar:

@Gottschalk: Go back to Orbais, or be whipped, thou villainous heretic.

BTW, "Gottschalk" is a popular medieval German name meaning "God's slave/servant"
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:39pm HŏRNξT MŏNTANA:

"According to the police report, Gottschalk had forsaken his usual cycling attire for a "tan bag" which left his ___ exposed when he stood up on his bicycle."
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:40pm Handsome Harry:

Coincidentally, I also vomited into the big phone.

So in this case, "we" is entirely appropriate.
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:43pm HŏRNξT MŏNTANA:

"Gottschalk composed the earliest known feature length film scores, at a time when cue sheets were the norm."
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:43pm dc pat:

good point HH, thanks.
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:45pm HŏRNξT MŏNTANA:

"Although born and reared in New Orleans, Gottschalk was a supporter of the Union cause during the American Civil War. He returned to his native city only occasionally for concerts."
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:46pm Hincmar:

@HŏRNξT: Do you know Sting?
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:47pm HŏRNξT MŏNTANA:

I've got more of this if you or the others want it, Hink. I am tempted to answer "yes, I know Sting", but I fear I would be playing into something nefarious.
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:49pm Asmodiahan:

Great programmking, and thanks for the wonderful Sinfonia! "Windmills of your Mind"---DJ Steinsky once did an entire hour of this melody, by various artists--Memorable!
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:51pm Hincmar:

Just making fun, HŏRNξT. Turnabout is fair play!
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:51pm HŏRNξT MŏNTANA:

"Gottschalk gained national prominence by announcing that Ronald Reagan had been suffering from diminished mental ability as early as 1980."
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:52pm Hincmar:

Poor Kurt, his comments board will contain a quote from every wikipedia article about someone named Gottschalk...
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:53pm HŏRNξT MŏNTANA:

Fine, I'm done.
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:54pm Hincmar:

You were very thorough, tyvm
  Wed. 3/16/11 12:55pm DJ KG:

ah but hannah, look what i'm about to play:

  Wed. 3/16/11 12:56pm Hincmar:

My dog is slurping water in perfect time to the rhythm of your background music.
  Wed. 3/16/11 1:02pm Chef Lom-Bar-Dee:

The man who makes the lines of the football field gots chalk.
  Wed. 3/16/11 1:03pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Oh my goodness, this HPSCHD is fantastic! It's kinda punk rock, non?
  Wed. 3/16/11 1:05pm DJ KG:

cage = total punk!
  Wed. 3/16/11 1:07pm Wendy del Formaggio:

This is making me giggle. It's very happy and crazy. I've only recently discovered the music of Cage, but I love his attitude. There was a nice article in The New Yorker about him a few months ago.
  Wed. 3/16/11 1:07pm Handsome Harry:

John Cage really knew how to throw down.
  Wed. 3/16/11 1:08pm DJ KG:

Really? I missed that article, Wendy. Do you still have a copy?
  Wed. 3/16/11 1:12pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I don't have the issue any more. I just looked on their site and here's the abstract of it. http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2010/10/04/101004fa_fact_ross
If you don't subscribe and can't get the entire article, lemme know. I do subscribe, and I can print ya a copy!

Drat you minotaurs! I'll get you next time!
  Wed. 3/16/11 3:09pm HŏRNξT MŏNTANA:

"Gottschalk studied history and German philology, eventually taking his exams as a teacher for primary and secondary schools; however, it was during this time that he discovered his true vocation: entertainment."
  Wed. 3/16/11 3:42pm DJ KG:

montreal. (i <3 montreal, btw.) in case you check back, the bed music was mancini "windmills of your mind" at the wrong speed. my bed music is always the first track on the playlist, but at the wrong speed (except the first time). or sometimes it's backwards.
  Fri. 4/8/11 5:41pm Marie:

I loved this show. I appreciate your selections.
