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.

Morning Trouble!
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:05am northguineahills:

I thought this Roscoe Mitchel must be new, I've never heard him do anything quite like it. Morning!
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:06am trouble:

good grey gray morning!!
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:07am Marmalade kitty:

tinkle tinkling tinnitus! my speaker was way too loud for the bells!
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:10am listener mark:

Good Morning trouble
Good Morning everybody
Good Morning Deep Blue Day
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:10am healey:

good morning trouble and the modern world!
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:13am Caryn:

The "Brain Eno" typo is making me giggle... Nice reprieve from all the work stress.
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:14am Tiagoi (still in NCL...):

Farid El Atrache! Takes me back to a 1991 trip to morocco. Thanks.
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:41am pierre:

So it is grey on both side of the ocean.

Bonjour Trouble,
Bonjour listeners.
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:42am evan:

I was upstairs and thought I heard an Indigo Bunting singing in our backyard. Which would be so strange since it is winter (yes, I'm a birder).
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:46am northguineahills:

@Evan: I first read that as "The Indigo Girls", which was more strange.
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:47am trouble:

bonjour pierre, bonjour tristesse. here is the link to that gorgeous book that the painting is from http://www.sigliopress.com/books/tantra-song.htm
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:48am listener mark:

@northguineahills ~ Yes, The Indigo Girls singing in the backyard would be strange indeed.
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:51am listener mark:

A pair of red tail hawks took up residence over the summer, so birds and squirrels are scarce of late.

Hello trouble & listenershipees, hope everyone is saving up their pennies for the marafun.

Monica's premium has some beauties on it.
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:56am Cecile:

Hey Brian, you like Jackie Chan? His latest movie is excellent. He combines his slapstick with good acting and period drama. Its' different for him but quite good. It's called Little Big Soldier.
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:58am stu:

Hei Trouble...Not so grey in Moomi land Nice white snow keeps the long nights bright. Groovy sounds ! Cheers
  Tue. 1/10/12 9:59am Brian in UK:

Cecile, the action man genre is one that does not appeal much BUT the word slapstick has got my attention.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:00am Cecile:

he has hilarious fights. Always. And Jackie in a production he produced, action-directed and conceived is great. His Chinese movies were always better.

But off for coffee date.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:02am trouble:

hey stu, brian, healey, listener mark,north guinea hills, tiagoi, marmalade kitty, cecile! the weather has me in a funk, and not a james brown kind of...
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:03am Marmalade kitty:

Good shoe gazing always gets me!
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:04am Marmalade kitty:

..gets me? I cant explain..
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:06am Brian in UK:

It is a much abused word. Funk can be cowardice.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:08am PKNY:

Feeling this William Parker, can't go wrong with the Impressions!
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:09am n:

Interesting William Parker.
It really takes a long time to take the needles out of nopales. I don't any of them ending up in my mouth.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:09am Brian in UK:

Keeping the JC theme, we are going to see the Chinese State Circus at the end of the month for Alice's birthday. Do not expect much slapstick.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:15am Caryn:

Yeah, Brian, but if the acrobats would apply their talents to slapstick, the results might be excellent.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:16am hamburger:

mm mm put me in the mood for some moonshine
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:22am PKNY:

Curtis makes everything better. Thanks for playing!
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:22am nyc:

This Curtis song almost made my cry.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:23am Brian in UK:

Is it Mardi Gras this week?
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:25am Marmalade kitty:

How is New York City? post occupy?
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:26am PKNY:

@nyc - listen to Curtis' live version of "We've Only Just Begun" into "People Get Ready", and make sure you have the tissues handy
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:26am annie:

morning all, plugged and playing. always sounds good in the store speakers~
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:27am Brian in UK:

What's cookin' annie?
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:28am pgw in mntclr:

This Nina Simone saves me from having to utilize "Callin' Oates" today
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:30am Brian in UK:

Daryll Hall has one of the best live voices for my money, at least this was a few years ago. What were they thinking about on that silver album!! Yuk.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:31am SKUM:

last track was a banger! keep it up
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:31am Priscilla:

Steinski's waking me up
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:33am Brian in UK:

You can see where Kid Koala gets it from.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:33am pgw in mntclr:

on a related note, Daryl Hall was on my flight back from the UK back in '96. he was taller than i expected.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:34am Brian in UK:

pgw .....and thinner?
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:34am Marmalade kitty:

The UK London St Pauls, etc, occupation continues.. OWS is/was a significant statment. I wonder how it will be viewed in the history book
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:35am listener james from westwood:

coffee is for closers only!
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:35am still b/p:

"Put. That coffee. Down. Coffee's for closers only."
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:35am listener james from westwood:

lol, great minds think alike!
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:36am pgw in mntclr:

i think he was thin, but it was december, so he had a jacket on.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:36am still b/p:

Glengarry Glen Jinx.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:38am Cecile:

Daryl is a tall drink of water. He can also, as a former co-worker said, sang.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:41am JT:

You're not fit to walk among men!
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:41am vivian:

What is Steinski up to these days?
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:43am Marmalade kitty:

A rough mix w/Steinski was the first fmu show I listend to
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:47am Dave B:

Good morning... work just lightened up a bit, now I can listen!

Hey, when is Marathon? I need to throw my hat in the volunteer ring.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:49am Brian in UK:

trouble, just figured it out. The grey; you need a fix of Richter. Stare at one of those for fifteen minutes and all will be, well greyer.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:49am Dave B:

sorry for the capitalization, in reading it back it reminds me of "Carousel"
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:50am Cecile:

annie, hi!
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:50am Jay/ London:

hi everyone just home from work .. The glen Jones show was the first one for me that i remember listening too first on wfmu
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:51am Dave B:

Charles Bradley! EXCELLENT. This crushes live....
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:51am Marmalade kitty:

get the sad lamps out or just hibernate?
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:53am listener james from westwood:

first time i listened to fmu was whoever was on on 9/14/92; my new boss was a listener and had it on in our office.
first time i ever heard it: by accident, a couple of years before that date. while flipping channels, i heard bronwyn c play "got a lot of living left to do" after sammy davis jr. died. she followed up by saying, "that was sammy davis, jr. GET IT?"
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:53am Brian in UK:

Dave B Snickers used to be called Marathons over here.
This is a musical with no pretense of plot.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:55am abby in france:

hi trouble, hi everybody. the first thing i remember was alan watts and some roswell lost tapes thing.
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:57am trouble:

bonjour abbey in france. j'adore alan watts!
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:57am kate:

love you polnareff!
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:59am Joe McG:

@Dave B: Marathon this year is Feb 20 to March 4. Contact our own Scott Williams to volunteer: scott@wfmu.org
  Tue. 1/10/12 10:59am Cecile:

this is amazing.
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:02am abby in france:

on t'adore, toi, trouble...
i heard someone say on the radio once that god fucked up when he designed women's knees (b/c they are ugly.)
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:02am Dave B:

Thanks Joe McG.

(I've already out lived Carousel)
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:02am Mike East:

Thanks for the info Joe McG. I was just thinking about volunteering on my way to the bus station this morning!
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:03am ?:

Vachement chouette!
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:03am hamburger:

waow - yelle!
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:03am trouble:

merci abbey! and was that knee hater person a man perhaps?
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:05am robyn:

yeah...i thought women's knees were the bees knees in french culture...i am thinking of a movie i think
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:06am robyn:

oh, duh, claire's knee.
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:06am abby in france:

yes and everyone else there agreed, they said the only thing that was worse was the BACKS of the knees! (the french!!)
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:08am Cecile:

Sylvia Robinson? I thought it was a production by Harey Casey (KC and the Sunshine Band)
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:09am Brian in UK:

Did Clair only have one leg?

There is no proper name for the back of the knee.
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:10am v k:

too kind - too too kind
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:10am wikimaniac:

"Coco Chanel believed that women’s knees are extremely ugly, and the best thing to do is to hide them under the skirt."
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:10am Cecile:

I guess I was wrong. Yep, she wrote it. And Shirtley from Shirley and Lee sang it.
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:11am Cecile:

Karl Lagerfeld seems like an outright feminist compared to these folks.
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:11am Mike East:

my daughter calls the back of her knees her "knee pits"
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:12am Brian in UK:

We've gone full circle back to the circus with Coco.
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:12am pierre:

hiboux, poux, cailloux, genoux, bijoux
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:12am v k:

knee pits - a phrase has been coined
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:13am Cecile:

I think so!
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:13am abby in france:

sorry pierre!!!!!!!!!!
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:15am pierre:

@abby : sorry for what?
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:15am ranjit:

re: knees
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:16am abby in france:

pierre do you know what's a good archive to listen to, of shows that are in the middle of the night, our time?
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:17am Dave B:

knee pit = (Ron) Popliteal Fossa

  Tue. 1/10/12 11:19am Ken From Hyde Park:

The sky is getting nice & blue in the Hudson Valley of New York. Great show this morning, as always.
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:20am annie:

ken snow flurries here, about an hour west of you in delhi
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:21am pierre:

@ abby : i'd say anything, but from the one that have (sometimes heard) let's say : Antique Phonograph Music Program / Mudd Up / Music To Spazz By/ The Evan "Funk" Davies Show are good, that's the one i've stumbled on.
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:21am trouble:

good morning ken from hyde park. thanks for the kind words. a forecast of soon to be blue skies here?
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:24am Cecile:

  Tue. 1/10/12 11:25am annie:

ken all these flurries are going north of you.. hey cecile, not alot of anything except 24-7 work.. of which i will NOT complain....
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:27am annie:

.....and i'm apologizing for not emailing you when i said i would; life just has taken over...all aspects of it
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:29am Caryn:

Of course, the back of the knee was eloquently called "knee's butt" on "30 Rock".
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:30am Cecile:

oh, don't worry, I'm just glad you're doing OK.
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:30am Marmalade kitty:

knee recap: each to their own knees.
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:31am pierre:

i discovered that i love this Barabajagal album, which was a discovery for me.
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:32am Brian in UK:

abby if I may crosstalk, Monica's show is always worth a listen as is Mr Finewines.
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:33am trouble:

  Tue. 1/10/12 11:35am Marmalade kitty:

Wowie zowie! Beautiful! Such a beautiful poem!
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:46am Brian C.:

Sweet sounds by Alton & hortense, sounds so much like Walers c.'68
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:47am still b/p:

Plenty of good music today, and encountering the last four or five particular tracks in one show is why I listen to this station.
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:48am Jennique:

Hi Trouble, just popping in from sunny L.A. whilst visiting family & friends. I'll go back to the archives for a listen. Made a point to put some WFMU stickers up on Venice Beach. Photos to follow soon!
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:49am annie:

one of our senior citizen customers said that this was "interesting" music..i assured her it was all very good...
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:51am trouble:

thanks b/p!
  Tue. 1/10/12 11:56am Jennique:

  Tue. 1/10/12 11:58am trouble:

  Tue. 1/10/12 11:59am fossanation:
