Calypso's prop was turnin' a few RPMs slow -- on purpose?

calypso good! Love Bob Mitchum's easy singin' style
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:13pm pierre:

Bonjour Kurt !
and all listeners !!!
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:13pm cee debbles:

Mitchum, one of the early Hollywood bad boys
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:16pm frenchee:

bring 'em, I say!
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:18pm Carmichael:

Hello, Mr. Gottschalk, listeners and eye-throbbing painting.
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:20pm DJ KG:

h i everyone!
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:22pm Handsome Harry:

Late to the party today. Can't believe I missed the Robert Mitchum.
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:22pm Minnesota Jeff:

DJKG, I know its YOUR show and you do what YOU want, but I really want to hear something off the Emerson Lake and Powell s/t album! "Touch and Go" or maybe "The Score", mayhaps "The Miracle"? Come on, lets help the late Powell get a bit more of the spotlight back from Palmer!
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:24pm DJ KG:

oh, man. i wish i could say 'anything for you, minnesota gif.' but, elp?
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:24pm BodegaMan:

good day all. listening the whole time and missed the Robert Mitchum due to work/concentration. Is there anything work doesn't get in the way of?
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:24pm still b/p:

Bob Mitchum...who knew?
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:27pm Minnesota Jeff:

DJKG, this ins't that ELP, its ELPOWELL! I would recomend 'The Miracle' or 'Touch and Go'.
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:32pm Handsome Harry:

I don't know that it gets any better than a well-employed laugh track. This is killing me.
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:34pm J J:

Talk about the time you got cancer and died!
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:34pm frenchee:

oooh yeah, Robert Mitchum on Dick Cavett, tumbler of scotch in hand, sunglasses securely fastened...
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:37pm efd:

MN Jeff, if it's helpful at all Trent played "Touch And Go" on his show last week
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:39pm Carmichael:

Jeff, you'll see ol' Cozy yourself on Saturday night when you float on up to heaven.
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:40pm Jill Scott:

Love Robert Mitchum's body of work but who is Ken Freedman? Never heard of him or Kenny G
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:41pm Gaiwan:

@Handsome Harry Yes, I had much the same reaction.
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:41pm DJ KG:

and you never will, jilly...
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:45pm still b/p:

By way of introduction, he's been referred to thus: "Avantgardistes like Goldsmith (currently touted as hotstuff by Perloffty profs of the Poetics Dept)..."
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:46pm DJ KG:

there will be no talk of kenneth goldsmith on my playlist.
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:46pm Minnesota Jeff:

efd - Yeah I heard it, and it was sweet! I know its not "13 Women" and maybe doesn't heed such multi-DJ WFMU play, but STILL! If he played "The Miracle" then there wouldn't be overlap.
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:55pm Handsome Harry:

Holy Moses I hope this slot stays MINIATURE MINOTAURS.
  Wed. 5/18/11 12:58pm efd:

Oh, I wasn't suggesting that Kurt couldn't also play it - just offering a source if you needed to hear it NOW! :)
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:00pm Minnesota Jeff:

efd - I own the album, but like playing a Jukebox, its nice to have others hear it too. Regardless of their acceptance.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:02pm Ike:

Emerson, Lake (of Fire), and any kind of P. are minions of the dark forces of mediocrity and we will NEVER accept them! Unless they sound good played backwards or Tractor-ized or something.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:09pm Minnesota Jeff:

Keith Emerson and his wall of keyboards be not afraid!
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:10pm still b/p:

Hm. I haven't had a taste for ELP since I was 15, and there's no accounting for calibration, but, in the great wide range of all music, are you sure about that placement and about assigning that much amperage to the scorn?
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:14pm Rev:

@DJ KG: TESTIFY, BROTHERRRRRRRr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:16pm Lewis:

I am enjoying your show kurt - keep playing good music...
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:20pm Cecile:

Ike isn't from the Midwest. He doesn't have that choice/cheese dichotomy as well developed as some of us do.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:21pm DJ KG:

cecile: are you midwest?
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:21pm Cecile:

Yes, sir.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:22pm DJ KG:

wherebouts? i'm native illinois.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:24pm Cecile:

Houghton, Michigan, in the UP.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:24pm Ike:

Trust me, that's pretty low amperage by my standards. If we were talking about, say, GNR, then I would roll out the really serious abuse, like talking about tying Axl to a cinder block made of the melted hopes and dreams of real, actual good musicians everywhere, and throwing it into a vat of boiling frat-boy sweat.

Choice/cheese dichotomy?!? Huh?
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:25pm DJ KG:

whoa! i know someone from houghton! and i've used a field recording of campfire songs recorded there!
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:27pm Cecile:

Ike, an innate fondenes for craptastic AOR, metal, whatever from your youth sitting alongside an appreciation for the rarefied and experimental.

Who do you know from Houghton? I might know them. Or my sister might. She knows everyone.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:29pm Minnesota Jeff:

GNR rules.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:30pm Minnesota Jeff:

Cecile - Don't you have MN roots? I guess I thought you lived in MPLS.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:30pm Cecile:

I do live in Minneapolis. Have for the last 20 years.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:31pm Cecile:

Good guess, considering the low rate of transience among Minnesotans, but nope, I'm "not from around here."
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:31pm Droll:

Let me be the first to request Tarkus for next week. DJ Donna Summer (Jason Forrest) played it, in its entirety, on his Advanced D&D show once...
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:33pm Minnesota Jeff:

Tarkus' wild cover art is only surpased by the even wilder interior gatefold art. Buy the album at some used joint for that reason alone.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:33pm Cecile:

Aw, KG, play Willie Nelson doing Stardust. I'm a sucker for that one.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:36pm Ike:

I do like some crap from my youth but usually not AOR or metal. I like, say, Information Society, and God help me, I kinda liked that circa-1980 Lionel Richie track Clay played last week on Fabio's show during the insane DJ showdown. So, yeah, I might be a hypocrite. Mmmm, tasty hypocrisy! Nom nom.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:36pm WCBS-FM:

You guys DO LISTENER REQUESTS here???????

  Wed. 5/18/11 1:37pm DJ KG:

i think kenny g plays requests. when is his show on again?
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:38pm Cecile:

That's okay, Ike. Information Society gives me a rash. So we're all good here.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:38pm DJ KG:

oh, right. kenny g's on this summer...
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:40pm Ike:

He IS?!?!?!?
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:40pm Minnesota Jeff:

Kenny G really has you spooked, DJKG. Don't Fear the Creeper!
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:41pm DJ KG:

yeah, weds noon-three
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:41pm Cecile:

No, he's not. Not yet.
The new schedule isn't out yet, is it? I don't think it is...
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:43pm DJ KG:

oh! oh, good...
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:43pm still b/p:

You said no speaka him.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:43pm DJ KG:

  Wed. 5/18/11 1:44pm Cecile:

Act like the spot's yours, KG. Be confident! Kenny can take his anal magic to another day...
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:44pm Handsome Harry:

Choice/Cheese dichotomy? What is this? Sounds intriguing, especially as someone who hails from the Great State of Wisconsin.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:46pm Cecile:

See above. i just made it up.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:48pm Steve O:

Mmmm ... sexy teddy bear.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:48pm huh?:

You mean DJ KG isn't Kenny G?
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:49pm DJ KG:

i think kenny g is hacking my playlist
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:51pm huh?:

He's a known plagiarist.
  Wed. 5/18/11 1:52pm still b/p:

His suits on their own are monkeying with all electronic forms of communication.
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:00pm Droll:

This is the longest alphabet I've ever endured, how many letters was that? Y is for the yolk? Is there something I need to know before rapture on Friday?
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:00pm Rob from Maryland:

Is this record at the wrong speed? It doesn't sound that bad, actually.
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:01pm Gaiwan:

I think that John Denver slowed down sounds a little bit like Kermit the Frog.
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:02pm Rob from Maryland:

It does. Of course, John Denver did look like frog.
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:03pm Pete:

Kittitas County Washington here - we got flooded pretty bad too

Creek changed direction, we had 5 feet of water down the only road to our house. ;-(
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:03pm Zoraida:

it seems we have a black out over at Orange, NJ
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:04pm Pete:

Road trashed, power out, stuck for 3 days.
Everyone ok, going home today!
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:06pm glenn:

better late than never - robert mitchum to some cute young thing "stick with me baby and you'll be fartin' through silk"
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:09pm Cecile:

Pete, take care and let us know how things go!
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:10pm DJ KG:

yes, best wishes, pete
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:20pm Minnesota Jeff:

Good luck pete, floods suuuuck so bad. Water ain't fun once its inside the home.
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:23pm Water:

We just keep rockin' along.
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:24pm Cecile:

nona hendryx from labelle and solo...
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:34pm Bill:

Was that Hypodermic needle thing from Family Feud?
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:34pm Steve O:

Never expected to hear John Hartford on the Minotaurs. At one of his shows, I told him a good friend of mine couldn't make it because he had a gig that night. Hartford' sez to me: "It's always better to pick than to be picked to."
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:35pm DJ KG:

<3 Hartford!
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:37pm Mary Wing:

Yay, new Mick Harvey album! Is it in the new bin?
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:39pm siggi:

I´m cleaning my flat in malmö sweden with thy sweet tunes, which is making it heaps more fun than it really is. Thank you
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:40pm The Day The Banjo Stood Still:

Klaatu barado piktu.
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:42pm Cecile:

  Wed. 5/18/11 2:44pm DJ KG:

  Wed. 5/18/11 2:47pm donniebobb:

  Wed. 5/18/11 2:48pm Cecile:

these lyrics feels pretty random. Very ***** * like.
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:48pm Looms:

Nice tunes, Kurt. Thanks.
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:49pm BodegaMan:

This has been an excellent show. as usual. eagerly waiting to dig into my MinMinau premium that I received on Monday...
  Wed. 5/18/11 2:50pm DJ KG:

  Wed. 5/18/11 2:56pm Handsome Harry:
