Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 8/3/12 10:07am Doug Schulkind:

@Paul Sherratt
Thanks for the photo detective work!

I noticed an influx of Spanish-language discs in the WFMU new bin. Oddities from Peru and Colombia amongst other things. The new bin is a huge influence on WFMU's general programming. I actually have always felt it was TOO MUCH an influence. Many years ago, I conceived and implemented at WFMU an OLD BIN — a place to pull out old gems from the library and give them new prominence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 8/3/12 10:09am Doug Schulkind:

I mispronounced Felciano's name as "Feliciano." When I looked at my notes, I figured I made a typo and self-corrected incorrectly. Whoops! Apologies to Mr. Felciano (who I bet gets that all the time.)
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:10am kat330:

Good on ya for that, and though I'm still too new to the overall programming to make that claim, I've also noted a bias to the new.
Ah, then good on that non-typo, too! :)
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:12am Michael Pollak:

Loving Glossalalia. Any cool anecdotes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 8/3/12 10:14am Doug Schulkind:

At most stations, a "bias to the new" (as you wonderfully put it, kat330) would result in an emphasis on newly recorded sounds. At WFMU at least, the "new" includes all records that are new to the library, which includes old records in the mix. Still though, in it's way, the new bin is kind of a commercial product placement in the middle of WFMU. Labels get prominent placement for their "product" in return for sending it in for free.
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:14am northguineahills:

Well, this is a different drummer. Would love to hear the Lou Harrison side.

I had long felt that there was too little Hispanic music in the FMU mix. As I rejoiced when country music made its big FMU come-on in the late 80s, so am I rejoicing to hear so much Spanish nowadays.

The Lou Harrison tracks (there are two in addition to the one from Felciano) are lovely gamelan-tinged numbers. One, "In Celebration of Golden Rain," is particularly enchanting.

  Fri. 8/3/12 10:19am Michael Pollak:

Thanks for the glossalalia URL. BTW, I'm running into odd problems with your comments column -- the right side cuts off instead of wrapping unless I expand to the entire screen -- which then seems to stumble over itself when my comment gets checked. Is it a known problem with a known fix? My browser is Safari, on an Apple running Lion. If not, I can deal, just curious if there is a better way.
  Fri. 8/3/12 10:21am Michael Pollak:

IGNORE LAST COMMENT. I finally got the knack for gently grabbing the left edge and expanding it that way. Didn't seem like an option before.

I am having the same wrapping issue with the comments. And I am using Safari, too. Not sure what the deal is. My guess is, quitting and restarting Safari might work. I am too chicken to do it in the middle of the show.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 8/3/12 10:51am Doug Schulkind:

Found this:

"The scene was fleeting, barely more than a minute, but it lingered long after the film ended. In “No Direction Home,” Martin Scorsese’s 2005 documentary about Bob Dylan’s journey, Appalachian folk musician John Jacob Niles is seen in archival footage performing presumably in the 1950s. Dylan recalls hearing Niles’s music early in his life, and it’s hard to imagine you ever forget Niles’s voice. He sang in an operatic falsetto, acting out the various perspectives, both male and female, of the traditional ballads he wrote and collected as a storyteller. He was the embodiment of the Old Weird America before that term even existed. “The Boone-Tolliver Recordings” is as good as any place to start in Niles’s slim discography. Released on L.M. Duplication, a small label founded by Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost of the band A Hawk and a Hacksaw, the album compiles the two EPs Niles recorded at home in the ’50s, accompanying himself simply on dulcimer. In their stark intimacy, the songs — just Niles’s voice — impart the same sensation: They transcend time and place."

@El Thatchmo The Honda Quaalude, such a smooth car you can sleep whilst you drive.

This "Long Time Sun" is borrowing melody from "Wild Mountain Thyme," a favorite folksong of mine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 8/3/12 11:10am Doug Schulkind:

I still sing my daughter to sleep with this song, albeit with the original melody, not this gorgeous re-working. I miss my girl. She's at summer camp for another 9 days.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:12am Van in DC:

Nice find, this :) I may have to go dig this one up

El Thatchmo :
I eventually entered in to swing of WOMAD on Sunday ! Actually really enjoyed the Robert Plant set but got the impression that several thousand others were not over-keen. Omar Pene and his guitarist were a highlight.

Don't forget, Steinski's A Rough Mix show follows GTDS immediately after.

Had to climb down off my trampoline to thank you for the shoutout, Doug! And the sun just came out from behind a cloud, too. :)
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:18am kat330:

@Paul, at both 11:01 and 11:03: Similarly I had to put hands to ears yesterday when Liz Phair appeared on the GTDR stream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 8/3/12 11:22am Doug Schulkind:

Liz Phair was on the stream? Must have a track on a compilation I loaded.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:23am Paul Sherratt:

kat, Doug, Wild Mountain Thyme, do you have The McPeake Family album with that title ?
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:24am kat330:

@Paul: [Now off the tramp. for good.] Again, it was Baez' version I learned it from. Did Judy Collin cover it, too? I'll check.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:25am Van in DC:

Wait. Doug, you have Liz Phair on the stream but apparently no Kate Bush? This is a travesty.

  Fri. 8/3/12 11:25am kat330:

Yep, Judy Blue Eyes did, too. Now I'm unsure where I heard / learned it first.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:26am kat330:

I'm sorry, Doug, not THE stream -- specifically on Chazaloo's BDN.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 8/3/12 11:28am Doug Schulkind:

Aha! Thanks for clarifying about the Liz Phair "fiasco."
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:29am northguineahills:

Bill Doss of Olivia Tremor Control, Apples in Stereo, etc, died Monday, just found out.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:29am kat330:

:) Hope I wasn't been unPhair.

Doug, for someone draggin' on 5-6 hours sleep, you're still whip-quick with a quip. :)
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:34am Alex in Illinois:

Of course I am having the left/right scrolling width issue like most. Fairport's version of Mattie Groves was the first one I heard. This John Jacob Niles one is out of this world! Thanks for the article on Niles, Doug!

R.I.P. Bill Doss. Much loved. Outrageously missed.

great show as always doug - catch ya "on the flipside" as the kids say!
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:38am kat330:

@Paul: Just searched up the McPeake Family to find out Rod Stewart covered WMT, too?? Yikes, he's another hands-on-ears artist for me, heh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 8/3/12 11:40am Doug Schulkind:

Seeya, holland oats! I hope you stay strong in your weekend condition.

I love old Roddy. "You Wear It Well" is a personal all-timer for me.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:40am kat330:

None of the other track titles ring a bell -- maybe "Cock Robin"? -- though probably I'd recognize (recognise for you ;) "The Derry Hornpipe" and "Juanita" if it's the well-known one.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:42am Kenzo (lastever):

Clearly I need to auto-shrink URL's in the future...
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:42am kat330:

Oooh, ooooh, I've now GOT to hear the Mark Knopfler cover of Wild Mountain Thyme!
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:43am Paul Sherratt:

I'm sure Rod once had a career boost with a spin on GTDS ..
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:43am Kenzo (lastever):

(Super-long URL's are sending the column into ultra-wide scroll mode in most browsers.)
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:44am duke:

@kat330 I really liked Ol' Rod's first couple of solo albums, especially Gasoline Alley. I was recently in the car with my mother-in-law and she put in a Rod CD with him singing standards. I almost had to jump out of the car. His recent stuff is definitely hands over ears.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:44am kat330:

@Paul: Heh! And here's the Knopfler:
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:46am kat330:

Oops, Kenzo -- I'm very guilty of posting the long URLs, though my browser (Firefox on Windows Vista) is not having the problem
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:46am listener james from westwood:

no conference calls made for a very lovely trip thru drummerland. tho' i did have to admit building maintenance for a look at the loo. didn't stop the music!
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:47am Paul Sherratt:

kat, ' Juanita ' is an instrumental on that album.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:47am kat330:

@Doug: I've held this Rod the Mod convo before on FMU. It's not just the sore-throat inducing vocals, it's something to do with the personality he projects. Different strokes, as the saying goes.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:49am Paul Sherratt:

Sorry Kenzo ! How do you shorten 'em ?
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:49am kat330:

That last should have been for duke -- but Doug, too.
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:50am Van in DC:

I also have no URL issues Mr. Kenzo. (Firefox on Win 7)
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:55am kat330:

Van, I think I mistyped above. I also have Windows 7, not Vista. Must be some connection between Win 7, Firefox and moving a lot. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 8/3/12 11:55am Doug Schulkind:

Ha!! I shortened all the URL and now no wrapping problem. Kenzo is a genius (but we knew that). Thanks Kenzo.

I love this Witch I'm going to have to track more down.

Sir Douglas, thanks for a mighty fine audio pathway to the weekend! On the flip, after victuals!
  Fri. 8/3/12 11:57am duke:

Another fine show. Thanks Mr. Drummer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 8/3/12 11:58am Doug Schulkind:

Paul, go to a URL shortener page (Google it) like Tinyurl or Bitly. You cut and paste in the long URL and it feeds you a shortened version. Works like charm.

THANKS for hanging with me gang! Stay tuned for Steinski:

Thanks Doug! Happy weekend to everyone!

Was thinking about Ebo Taylor this only am - to include him on a Ghana tunes tape for an eighty something chap I met yesterday who'd spent a few years in Accra as a banker. What does the team think ? !
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:01pm listener james from westwood:

always fun going over the falls in a drum!
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:02pm Paul Sherratt:

Thanks Doug, for the the show and the shortening ..
