Listener comments!

  Mon. 8/20/12 12:04pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Hi Irene,
The sun is shining, the beers are in the fridge and three hours of great music, happy days.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:05pm northguineahills:

Galaxy is so amazing!
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:09pm BSI:

It's a great riff. I expect to hear Don Cherry humming it in the background...
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:11pm kat330:

Hi, Irene!

@Sean: Same here, Sean, except it's wine in the fridge and several hours off to imbibe.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:15pm Nici, Bristol, UK:

Hello Irene, Hello Sean! Hello Kat!
Well don't you all have a lovely evening planned!
Enjoying the show and yes it is so lovely and sunny in Bristol today.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:16pm Van in DC:

Happy Monday Irene
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:21pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@ Nicki,
A fellow Bristolian tuning in, how cool is that!
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:29pm Zal:

Tim Buckley ... nice. I enjoy his "Lorca" album a lot.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:31pm kat330:

Back from kitchen: Yes, Tim Buckley' awesome. Like Irene's playlists.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:32pm Clay:

Good hearing you Irene. Easing us into the week.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:33pm kat330:

Hi, Nici, and how Nice two Bristols stomping here! Have yet to meet a fellow Knob Knee-an here.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:33pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

This track is beautiful
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:33pm v k:

'easing us into the week' indeed; thank you for the much needed calm
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:34pm kat330:

Hey, Pidgester!

Sending a Happy 60th B'day shoutout to fellow Hoosier, John Hiatt!
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:34pm Clay:

I have always hoped for a Mahavishnu reunion. John. Billy, Jan, Jerry, and Rick.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:36pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@ Clay, great show a fortnight ago
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:36pm Clay:

Hi Kat! Also the birthday of Robert Plant and Al Roker.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:37pm kat330:

Any milestones among them though?
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Irene!
Hi kat, Van, Sean, NGH, BSI, Nici, Zal, vk and everybody!

And hi Clay! (So, if you had your records handy, which song would you play for Robert Plant's birthday? ;)
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:40pm Van in DC:

Hiya Matt!
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:40pm kat330:

Hi, Matthew! :)

Hiatt's not only a fellow Hoosier, he's a fellow sexy-genarian now. ;)
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:42pm Clay:

TY Sean.
@Matt - Over The Hills and Far Away
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:44pm kat330:

City crickets? We have a really ramped up locust chorus going on here and now. Every August. Along with the yippy flying Pekingnese (migrating geese) and the silent, but ever so sweet, hummingbirds.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:45pm Matt from Springfield:

Fantastic acoustic guitaring ("Many times I've wondered / how much there is to know...")
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:47pm Pauly:

The loud flutteration of the large cockroach's wings as they lift off from the black trash bags on 27th St. has a certain urban charm.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:49pm kat330:

@Pauly: No rodent squeaks for punctuation?
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:49pm Bob in Miami:

Hi Irene,just checkin in from sunny Miami.Hope i'm not to late for the flight. Happy Monday...
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:50pm Mike East:

Good Monday afternoon, fmu friends.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:51pm Matt from Springfield:

Oooh, what kind of organ is this? Sounds just like a 70s recording, that organ type can be heard a lot from that decade.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:51pm Van in DC:

Beautiful track
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:52pm Pauly:

The barely audible squeaking of the brown mice in the subway stands in stark relief to the hellish squeaking of train brakes, as the R rolls into 23rd Street. Outside, the last red-tailed hawk dips low to grab a rat, and all seems right in the world.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:55pm kat330:

Waxing poetic, Pauly -- nice! Nature outside and Irene's lovely soundscape within are working that way on me, too. Also helped seeing "Beasts of the Southern Wild" over the weekend.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:55pm v k:

this is the song Sigur Ros opened with in Brooklyn in July; set the tone the band carried for 2 hours, and a truly magical evening i will never forget here; entire show here http://www.wnyc.org/shows/soundcheck/2012/aug/01/sigur-ros-live-celebrate-brooklyn/
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:55pm hamburger:

omg - are sigur ros cheating or something? too much awesome for this simple stuff... :)
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:56pm kat330:

Oh, hey, Mike! A movie mention and I hadn't noticed you were here yet!
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:56pm Mike East:

@kat330 - how was it?
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:57pm kat330:

Thanks, v k! Mr. Rós does seem to open up a world from behind the veil.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:57pm BSI:

Much city crickets here (DC) as well. My dog (rather large beefy boxer) has become quite the enthusiastic cricket-hunter. Walking him at night, he hears 'em in the narrow grass along the sidewalk. ... he calculates where they must be...... carefully..... then rears up and PUNCHES the ground with front paws. It's the funniest damned thing I've ever seen. He's a cricket-puncher.
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:57pm Kimball Hammond:

I hear "Yes' a bit in Sigur Ros, or maybe just Jon Anderson.

  Mon. 8/20/12 12:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Happy Monday Mike!
(Wow, a lot of people here are in the Happy Mondays... :)
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:59pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Hey Matt
  Mon. 8/20/12 12:59pm kat330:

@Mike: Oh, wow, I knew this moment was coming and still I'm unprepared. Let me think on it a bit.
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@BSI: Does the dog only punch the crickets, or does he toss them away afterward? A cricket hurler!
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:00pm Alan Cynic:

Very lovely show, as always! I bought the new Bill Fay one this morning :)
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Sean. Glad to see you're having nice weather--here, outside of Washington DC, it's literally half-sunny and half-overcast, depending on which direction of sky you're looking! Who knows which will prevail...
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:03pm BSI:

@Matt: no hurling, alas. It's just PUNCH (hard), wait, and satisfied at the silence of no-crickets, will trot away, totally satisfied...
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:11pm Mike East:

@kat330 - don't strain - a simple recommended or not recommended is always sufficient. :)
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:12pm kat330:

BotSW@Mike: There was a feel of Herzog in the pace and the parts that captivated. I was a bit bothered by the shaky shoulder-cam throughout, but Philo wasn't. Sort of a fable, but more a rite of very real passage as experienced through the mind and senses of a fierce six-year-old. The actress was all she's been touted to be. Yes, I recommend it, Mike, but perhaps my hopes had been too high.

NOW, you tell me! :)
Avatar Mon. 8/20/12 1:14pm Irene:

Thanks for all the cricket comments! They sing in the daytime from all kinds of places. I live not far from Central Park in NYC and hear 'em a lot now. My background crickets were recorded in Morristown, NJ, sitting on Washington Valley Road on a hillside late one summer evening as the sun was setting. Nice to throw into the musical mix every so often.
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:15pm kat330:

Ah, the Pastorius evocation once again. Thanks, Irene!
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Wonderful, didn't know you recorded your own cricket sounds! How serene to be listening to that on a summer's dusk, and to look at that serene imagery as well!
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:22pm Mike East:

I recorded some cricket sounds at my house a few weeks ago...there's some other bugs that might not be crickets that communicate in 2 and 3 click bursts in arhythmic patterns that make a cacophonous symphony which either soothes me, or keeps me awake, depending on my mood.
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:23pm kat330:

Mike, probably katydids or tree frogs.
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:24pm Mike East:

@kat330 - I think all of the above. Its so damn loud.
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:25pm kat330:

I love the scritching katydid songs, especially when there's a call and response from different trees in a syncopated stereo sequence.

So did I sell the Beasts to you?
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:27pm Van in DC:

Very pleasant ♫♫♫ today indeed - thanks Irene
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:28pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Perfect
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:29pm Mike East:

@kat330 - yes, I will watch it..though doubt I will catch it in the theater. NY'er review had me interested, you put me over the edge. - and yes, what you describe sounds like what I hear. I often sing along with them to join in the song.
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:34pm kat330:

BTW, I didn't spend all that long while writing that "review" -- I was also finishing up lunch and in the kitchen. So no strain. :)
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:38pm Mike East:

I hope you enjoyed your lunch.
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:44pm kat330:

Awesome TLT sandwich, yep. [t=turkey] So few of our garden tomatoes made it through this drought though. Barely enough for us and usually I'm giving bagfuls to the neighbors around now.
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:53pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Loved the Jenny Scheinman track, just settling down for dinner, Fish and Chips tonight!
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:56pm Matt from Springfield:

A virtual country getaway! Delivered most unusually from the middle of Jersey City, to the center of your weekday!
  Mon. 8/20/12 1:56pm Mike East:

I fried up some fish last night, though instead of chips, I have rice n beans with it for dinner. I do have some chips (which I think you'd call crisps) with my sandwich for lunch today, though.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:09pm Bob in Miami:

Nice segue Irene,love Hartford especially this LP w "Hey babe wanna Boogie & Turn your radio on.
Great show!!
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:16pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Loved the track you played last week from The Becca Stevens Band, this track is just bees-knees, magnificent.
Avatar Mon. 8/20/12 2:18pm Irene:

Thanks Bob! David Bromberg produced that John Hartford album, also an old fave of mine. And glad you like the Becca Stevens track. They're all lovely like that one.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:18pm kat330:

Damn, missed several tracks there while on the phone with a suit [banker, to be precise]. Where does the time for archives come from? :|
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:19pm don:

Pat Sky-excellent. Just saw 71 year old Tom Rush who still sings beautifully and strong and tells great anecdotes. Tom introduced us all to Joni, Jackson and James, all now recognizable by their 1st names..
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:20pm kat330:

@don: Tom, yes! His cover of Urge for Going surpasses Joni's version, IMO -- that's a rarity.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:22pm don:

@kat330-Tom covered that last week @ Turning Point Piermont and as beautifully as ever.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:22pm kat330:

Ah, and here's our local "Prince."
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:22pm v k:

Bonnie "Prince" Billy - kudos - his video to "I See a Darkness" is fantastic - such an interesting guy - such versatility
Avatar Mon. 8/20/12 2:25pm Irene:

Kat, the time is linked to when I post the song title in the playlist. Sometimes it's a bit off, so check out the song before where you left off. The archive will be posted a little while after the show.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:28pm kat330:

Oh, thanks, Irene! But I meant "the time" in the general sense of "where does the time go?" and how can we take out a loan for more of it! :)
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:28pm v k:

"I See a Darkness" official video - is it possible to not laugh at Bonnie "Prince" Billy's dancing? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-xSxWX7_-4 (as with Sigur Ros link, check out after Irene's show - not trying to create competition)
Avatar Mon. 8/20/12 2:34pm Irene:

Kat, if you could find a way to get a loan of time for me it would make life so much easier!
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:35pm kat330:

Or a clone of oneself.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:37pm Parq:

Vividly remember "Flute Thing" from Boston radio in the mid 70s, but don't think I could have correctly named Seatrain as the band. Another track of theirs was also really big on that scene, a somewhat extended retelling of the story of Job.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:37pm Bob in Miami:

Wow,never knew Seatrain covered this. Saw The Blues Project play this live at Newport (66). I think the Beasties sampled it as well??
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:37pm Steve in Tulsa:

This song provides the base sample to a great Beastie Boys track, "Flute Loop."
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:38pm Kimball Hammond:

Wasn't McCartney's brother in Seatrain? Mike MCGear? Hmm. I refuse to Google it.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:38pm Van in DC:

Really liking Flute Thing! :)
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:38pm kat330:

Guess New England's the place, the 60s-70s the time. I saw Seatrain live at Brown U. in Providence, April 1970.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:39pm Parq:

Ah, thanks Bob in Miami -- the reason i didn't remember Seatrain doing this was, it wasn't originally theirs.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:40pm Manalishi:

Would have loved to have seen Peter Green with Fleetwood Mac in the NE back then.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:40pm Bob in Miami:

Mike McGear was in The Scaffold. Seatrain had ex members of the Blues Project. The Beasties sampled the Blues Project "Electric flute Thing off their LP Projections.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:41pm Manalishi:

TY Bob. Say hello to Saigon Kick!
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:43pm Bob in Miami:

TY Manalishi,i'm still in touch w Matt Will send regards..
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:47pm Davice:

Hi Irene - Great show today . . . very suitable for a Monday afternoon at work. What is the piece you are using as bed music?
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:49pm Van in DC:

Ah, just hit me that that was Matt Munisteri who you had on a few weeks ago (working away and not paying attention too much ;) )
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Nice Mike Nesmith! Something sounded familiar, and 60s like about this song!
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:56pm kat330:

Thank you for an afternoon of gentle loveliness, Irene! Good rest of your days, everyone!

Ha, Sebastian! Another at that 1970 Brown Spring Weekend. Good times remembered.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:57pm Parq:

Irene, you're killing me with nostalgia here.
Avatar Mon. 8/20/12 2:58pm Irene:

Thanks for listening, everybody! Catch you next week.
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:58pm Van in DC:

Enjoyed the show - thank you so much Irene!
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:58pm Matt from Springfield:

ITA, Davice and kat! Lovely show, and a lovely, chill John Sebastian to end on!

Thanks Irene! Have a good afternoon everyone!
  Mon. 8/20/12 2:59pm Van in DC:

Ha! I actually work with a John Sebastian :)
  Mon. 8/20/12 3:00pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

A fantastic show, Irene, many, many thanks
  Mon. 8/20/12 3:00pm Bob in Miami:

Wow Love this Sebastian tune,saw him at the Flick coffee house in Coconut Grove in the early 70's perform this. Thanks Irene for a magical show..
