Yeah, so maybe you reach wfmu()normal before Dec 5?

Commercial radio continues to drift into the further reaches awful.

No rib jokes, people... ;)

I'm totally stealing that 5th Dimension track for a Thursday night.
  Fri. 11/16/12 11:49am Uncle Michael:

And where's the Gary Numan pun love?

Mitt is laughing at our 47%. A donation of $85 will kick us 49¢ past 50%.

I'll go with" diverse beyond description and forever curious "
BBC management think it's when a show plays more than two styles in a 12 month period.

@Paul: I recently came across an opera for Syd (Barrett) that Kevin Coyne performed with others in Leipzig in 1999. Totally unknown to me.

The radio concept of the "train wreck" is a myth. Smooth segues are beautiful. So are startling transitions.
  Fri. 11/16/12 11:51am Paul Sherratt:


Gosh .... did I ever get you a copy of the album Kevin made with Brendan Croker ?
  Fri. 11/16/12 11:52am Alex in Illinois:

@Uncle, I noticed it! THe play-on of "Are Friends Electric"
  Fri. 11/16/12 11:54am Uncle Michael:

Thanks Alex. I thought maybe my mic was off.
  Fri. 11/16/12 11:54am Matt from Springfield:

King of Soul gets ballad-y!

@Paul: Wonderful definition! Your eclectic is more precious than the BBC's anyday!
  Fri. 11/16/12 11:55am Hugo:

@Paul: There are exceptions. Those "On the wire" chaps keep going still. Yes, I did get the Coyne-Croker one. Very much appreciated! That one was never really released, was it?
  Fri. 11/16/12 11:55am ndbob:

excellent show Doug!
  Fri. 11/16/12 11:55am Van in DC:

Thanks for the great morning, Doug.
  Fri. 11/16/12 11:57am Matt from Springfield:

Always over too fast, but what a ride it is!

We can't wait until next Friday!
  Fri. 11/16/12 11:58am Uncle Michael:

Cold Friday.
  Fri. 11/16/12 11:59am Alex in Illinois:

From something I heard on the radio about James Brown, he actualy preferred ballads, but the energetic groove stuff that he did so well drew the crowds
  Fri. 11/16/12 12:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Cool to know, Alex.
  Fri. 11/16/12 12:06pm Paul Sherratt:

I suppose there are quite a few exceptions but management's definition is set at the lowest bar to match their imagination.

No, I don't think that Coyne-Croker was released. But I could be wrong.
  Fri. 11/16/12 2:49pm Van in DC:

I usually am. (wrong)
