"Put your hands together one time"
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:08pm don:

doing just that, charlie
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:08pm Doug S.:

Inspired by your gif, Charlie, I am cleaning the house. Pump up the volume! (I am not shampooing the rugs, however.)
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:08pm kat330:

Hi, Charlie, Carm, Don, Doug S. and LJfW! Present and listening, but keyboard time will be hit or miss. I'm surround by papers! :)
Avatar Thu. 6/7/12 12:09pm charlie:

hey, kat, just let doug vacuum up all those papers for you!
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:10pm kat330:

Oops, didn't scroll up -- Hi to Michael & Alf, too! :)
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:10pm kat330:

Maybe someone can help me find past tense in all this mess. SurroundED of course.
Avatar Thu. 6/7/12 12:14pm charlie:

don't worry, i've decided i can't properly say hi to everyone either! i'm taking advantage of the rare instance when i've actually planned the first set out to chat a little. that will fall by the wayside shortly i'm sure...
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:19pm Doug S.:

You're on your own, kat330, my vacuum really sucks.
Avatar Thu. 6/7/12 12:20pm charlie:

Isn't that what it's supposed to do, Doug ;)
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:22pm Laura L:

Nellie's gonna wash that man right out of her hair.
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:26pm northguineahills:

Darn it! I was listening to Diane when you played the new Squarepusher. The multiple WFMU streams makes for some interesting listening dilemmas.
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:27pm don:

thanks charlie!
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:28pm Michael:

Anyone else having problems loading the site? Stream is fine, site is crap for me sadly.
Avatar Thu. 6/7/12 12:28pm charlie:

love that track, don!
NGH -- that's why you've got two ears!
Avatar Thu. 6/7/12 12:29pm charlie:

I don't have any problems, Michael. Anyone else?
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:29pm Doug S.:

You are but one footprint on the Drummer Stream's march toward world domination.
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:31pm listener james from westwood:

no website or stream issues on this end. (crossing fingers vs. jinx!)
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:33pm northguineahills:

Laurie Anderson!

No, I'm not having problem w/ the site btw.
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:34pm Carmichael:

Site is AOK here (IE9)
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:36pm listener james from westwood:

thanks to ken's use of an instrumental of "california soul" during the marathon, this tune gets me in a pledgin' mood. must ... not ... get ... credit card ....
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:36pm Gary Mitchell:

such a groove now
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:40pm kat330:

So THAT's what that is under my fingernails! I had thought it was garden soil.

Sorry, Doug, it's best to buy a vacuum with the "proper amount of suction."
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:41pm Michael:

Thanks guys. Something with our connection. Phine on my phone.
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:44pm kat330:

Speaking of suck-tion, if you're still around Doug: We finally returned the Grace digital radio box. :{ It was a power problem not corrected by the replacement AC pack...soooo... I have no portable way to listen until we decide on a new system. I may be missing quite a bit of the live programming for 2-3 weeks.
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:49pm Gary Mitchell:

nice track!
Avatar Thu. 6/7/12 12:50pm charlie:

Hiya Gary, any other recent joiners!
OK, what have I missed?
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:56pm kat330:

Lots of sunny hello, tracks, Charlie --thanks! Just like what our laundry on the line is enjoying right now -- perfect weather the past few days..
  Thu. 6/7/12 12:58pm kat330:

Finland in the house -- oiva!
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:08pm Carmichael:

More groovy sunshine music, Charlie!
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:08pm Gary Mitchell:

love this kenton
Avatar Thu. 6/7/12 1:13pm charlie:

Kenton's "Artistry in Rhythm" was directly influenced by Debussy's "Afternoon of a Faun" -- discuss amongst yourselves.
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:14pm Gary Mitchell:

Mr. Wiki says "wall of sound" was used often to describe Kenton.. before Phil
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:14pm Carmichael:

She's lathering to the beat!
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:14pm Dan in Seattle:

Love the "Get it here" column, Charlie. Thanks!
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:16pm kat330:

Charlie's a full-service filling station -- pumping the best audio fuel in the neighborhood.
Avatar Thu. 6/7/12 1:20pm charlie:

yeah, gary, he used to layer different levels of horns and whatnot, creating a very dense sound...
ty, kat!
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:20pm Gary Mitchell:

karel gott just cleaned my windshield
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:22pm Geordie:

Karel Gott just cleaned my brain stem.
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:25pm Stanley:

Hi Charlie. Checkin in on the alternate stream and loving it. Good to see some afternoon regulars here as well.
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:29pm Doug S.:

This sounds almost like Laura Veirs gone electro!
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:31pm Carmichael:

Yay! ELP!
Avatar Thu. 6/7/12 1:31pm charlie:

Welcome, Stanley, glad to see ya.
OK, Doug!
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:33pm kat330:

I seem to recall some crazy hazy nights w/ELP on the stereo, yep.
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:34pm Carmichael:

I haven't heard this in 20 years. And I still remember every line, despite the many memory inhibitors I took at the time.
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:37pm northguineahills:

I saw the Nilsson doc on Netflicks a few months ago. Very nicely done.
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:37pm kat330:

I once knew every syllable of every song on every Dylan album up to Blonde on Blonde. Knew a great of that one, too, just not all of it.
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:38pm trrr:

Observing the 3 B+W photos on the front page.

Click to lady in pink like some kinda chromatic dive.

Or something.
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:41pm trrr:

..washing the grey tones right outta there.
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:42pm kat330:

  Thu. 6/7/12 1:42pm Gary Mitchell:

"the sound of the future" Eno called this
  Thu. 6/7/12 1:42pm listener james from westwood:
