Listener comments!

  Mon. 4/9/12 8:02pm kat330:

I do like this to launch the set.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:05pm kat330:

Bethany, you've found my sweet spot with this early music. Thank you!
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:09pm rick in philly:

This is wonderful courtly stuff!
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:11pm kat330:

Guess I'm a very happy camper not quite all alone here anyway. :)
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:11pm 12539:

Not alone at all.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:12pm Rusty in Pearl Harbor:

Love to have lunch on Mondays to this always....aloha
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:12pm kat330:

The way this music affects me gives some credence to past-lives theory.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:12pm bobby:

i have song running through visualizer on my xbox .. woot
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:13pm kat330:

@Rusty: Aw, no fair! You get to hear this lovely music AND be in Hawaii!
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:15pm ranjit:

I don't think i'd heard Ellen Fullman's work before. It's amazing! And goes well with the early stuff.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:16pm rick in philly:

The Ellen Fullman piece reminded me a little of Riech's Violin Phase
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:17pm ADM:

Ranjit, you should check out and see if she has any live shows coming up. I saw her at ISSUE a while back and its an amazing thing to see. The instrument she plays takes up a whole room.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:20pm kat330:

The long, deeper drone of Fullman's instrument is more akin to the rebec than the lute to my ear.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:21pm rick in philly:

Yeah BEER!
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:21pm kat330:

Machaut would get you back to c. 1350, Bethany.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:21pm ranjit:

I thought the vielle was a hurdy gurdy! I guess my thinking is just too modern: "Starting in the middle or end of the 15th century, the word vielle was used to refer to the hurdy gurdy." - wikipedia
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:22pm ::JT::

Images of Fullman playing: http://www.arlis-txmx.org/node/400
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:24pm trs:

I know vielle as the feminine form of the word vieux in french. I think?
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:26pm trs:

or oh, wait I"m wrong. It's 'vieille'
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:26pm trs:

Maybe it was 'vielle' in the olden days.. or in the old town.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:27pm kat330:

Isn't "viele" something like "a lot" in German, too?
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:28pm rick in philly:

I love the expression "olden days"!
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:28pm W in NJ:

Viel (in German) = Much
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:32pm trs:

Feels like mulch
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:33pm W in NJ:

@trs: thanks for the laugh!
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:34pm Dafydd:

Smells like mulch too.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:34pm W in NJ:

Interesting organ piece by Simpson; sounded just like a brass ensemble!
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:35pm kat330:

Yes, trs, tres amusant. :)
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:39pm Braveness23:

and here I was just grumbling to myself that WFMU spent $.44 on postage to thank me for my $15 donation. Hehe
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:40pm Rusty in Pearl Harbor:

@kat330. you don't kno the 1/2 of it. I escaped from Bergen Co. almost 15 years ago
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:41pm rick in philly:

I'm so glad to be listening to the show tonight!
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:41pm kat330:

BTW, Bethany, why are you "hp" in playlist designation while "br" is Benjamin Walker? Weird that.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:42pm 12539:

Isn't "hp" for Hit Parade, as in Stochastic Hit Parade?
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:44pm kat330:

@Rusty: I just hope one day I'll get to visit our 50th state. I'm jealous of anyone going there let alone living there.
@12539: You would know best! :)
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:45pm 12539:

Actually I'm not certain.
Avatar Mon. 4/9/12 8:50pm bethany:

Sure, let's hear the WHOLE THING AGAIN! Argh.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:50pm ranjit:

live webern remix!
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:51pm W in NJ:

Can never have too much Bach!
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:51pm trs:

Anyone know why Nardwar's album is named 'Busy doing nothing?' Curious.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:52pm kat330:

I can never viel it is too much.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:53pm W in NJ:

@kat330: thanks for another laugh!
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:53pm G:

Is that a tender viel, or a tough viel?
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:54pm kat330:

@trs: Okay, two curiosities awaiting discovery: playlists/hp and Nardwar's BDN.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:54pm kat330:

I viel veal is vile.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:55pm Van in DC:

Why oh why do I not listen to this show ALL the time? Always wonderful to hear!

If I were to mention that I am seeing Joshua Bell with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields at Strathmore on Friday, would that be enough to get you jealous Ms. Bethany Ryker? :)
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:56pm trs:

My guess is he just made it up.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:57pm G:

@Van: Make a note. Sometimes I miss the start if busy with dinner stuff...
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:58pm 12539:

Busy Doing Nothing is also the name of Charlie's show on wfmu. It's an old Bing Crosby song, but I don't know if the phrase itself is older.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:58pm kat330:

There seems to be "viel" baseball fever around these parts of late, so I'll use an apt metaphor: You hit it out of the ballpark tonight, BR/HP. Kiitos and moi! G'night good folk.
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:59pm 12539:

(Thanks Bethany)
  Mon. 4/9/12 8:59pm ::JT::

Lovely show, many thanks!
  Mon. 4/9/12 9:00pm W in NJ:

You're the best, Bethany. Two more hours for you!
  Mon. 4/9/12 9:00pm Van in DC:

See, G, it's beer that is my downfall in the evenings. :)

What? The show is over? Rats.
  Mon. 4/9/12 9:01pm G:

"Busy Doing Nothing" was in that Tawin adaptation film "A Connecticut Yankee...", starring Crosby, and seems to have been written for that film. Could be an older phrase the songwriter used, though...
  Mon. 4/9/12 9:02pm Van in DC:

Busy Doing Nothing is GTDS show :) (Hi Charlie)
  Mon. 4/9/12 9:04pm Van in DC:

Whoops, make that GTD*R* show - Give the Drummer Radio on wfmu...GTDS is Doug's Give the Drummer Some show on Give the Drummer Radio stream :) And Charlie has Busy Doing Nothing on the stream. Great show.
  Mon. 4/9/12 9:07pm trs:

What're the odds?
  Mon. 4/9/12 9:13pm Van in DC:

Even. I guess.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:59pm 2600:

Dern shame it's only an hour.

Great while it lasts!
