"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Hey pierre, hey Jason.
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:05am JA:

Pierre! hello! I need to step away for awhile, so please moderate the comments page while I'm away. Yknow, just use JA as your name when you respond for me. I appreciate this. I will be back around 6:30. OK
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:08am pierre:

we'll do
(though its a lot a responsability, and i'm not sure i up to the task)
Bonjour Deepak
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:09am annie:

morning all and especially the JA stand-in!
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:11am Azam:

Morning!
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:12am JA:

morning Annie, morning Azam !
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:13am Andrew:

I am locked to my headphones for this beautiful song.
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:13am Azam:

@Pierre - have you been to the Anish Kapoor instalation at the Grand Palais? I'm hoping to see it soon...looks amazing.
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:15am Deepak:

its time for my afternoon nap but i'll try and stay awake even though this track is a perfect lullaby
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:22am JA (which is pierre for 15 minutes):

@Azam : no have not seen it yet, although i've some issues concerning massive art event like that (you know the usual avoiding going to see what everybody else is going to seeā€¦ i'm being a bit snob) i still kinda want to see that, and my roomate is a big fan of the artist. Do you live in/near Paris ?

(by the way whn i said "Bonjour Jason" i meant "Bonjour JA" my mistake, for not being well awake)
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:29am Azam:

@Pierre - sure, but I really like his work and it's not often you get to see pieces on that scale. I'm in Brighton, England - so kind of near...
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:39am JA (which is pierre, for 15 minutes):

cool ! we (as part of the wfmu family) could se that while grabbing a drink !
I've only seen one of his piece, it was at the Tate Modern, it was that big red metal thing that looked like a giant red mussel. i enjoyed it.
I don't know if you tweet, but if you do let me know (its @pierreall)
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:40am JA:

the real JA should be here by now.
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:41am annie:

i realize it's cliche and overdone, but is there any way we can get some sweet sweet dave brubeck on?
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:44am annie:

ahh, REAL music with crackles and pops of vinyl.
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:47am John (FMG) London:

what album is this off? sounds great
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:48am JA (pierre, till the boss come back):

Toots is really an amazing harmonicist, Dave Brubeck is great to, i'd love to play a song by him, till i come back you can check wfmu's blog here : http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2011/05/brubecks-signature-signed-with-time-.html
  Wed. 5/18/11 6:50am Richard from Venezuela:

  Wed. 5/18/11 6:51am Azam:

Sorry, I don't tweet. facebook?

  Wed. 5/18/11 7:08am pierre:

  Wed. 5/18/11 7:18am Andrea on the M62:

Ahh PJ my favouritest. Seeing her in Manchester this September just love her! Oh, fab playlist so far
  Wed. 5/18/11 7:18am pierre:

  Wed. 5/18/11 7:41am John (FMG) London:

I'm pretty gutted I didn't go see these guys with Black Dice last week
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:26am glenn:

okay, u.k. listeners, forget the music, forget the art, let's get to the important shit - who the hell is imogen thomas, and who's she shagging? and does she have anything going for her besides great huge tracts of land?
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:27am hamburger:

word on the street is ryan giggs? oh and howdy wfmuuu btw :)
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:29am glenn:

so nobody important then?
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:31am hamburger:

an ex-big brother housemate
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:33am JA:

glenn what the hell have you done to my show? it's ruined now!
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:34am pierre:

@glenn : how the what did you came up with that topic ?
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:34am glenn:

i sowwy.
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:37am glenn:

there was an article in the toronto star today about imogen thomas and the unnamed (married) footballer she's been consorting with. and who better to satisfy my curiousity then the most excellent and wise u.k. commenters amongst you?
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:41am John (FMG) London:

I feel wrong that I also knew who she is and who she's been doing. I clearly need to stop reading the crappy free newspaper on the tube in the mornings
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:45am pierre:

@glenn & John (FMG) sometimes eyes are not organs to be trusted.
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:47am glenn:

huh?
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:50am ?:

Pierre, I'm thinking Imogene's eyes were not the organs that made a difference here.
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:51am pierre:

sorry i meant when you stumble upon newspaper titles that talks about people like I. Thomas or other persons that doesn't belong to our reality. I feel disturb each time, those t.v. characters are forced to my consciousness.

@? : yeah obviously
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:51am glenn:

what ? said.
  Wed. 5/18/11 8:54am Richard from Venezuela:

Today Braga win!!
