Good afternoon Kurt, it's been a while since I last could hear your show
  Fri. 12/7/12 3:02pm ?:

Ha look at Minn. Jeff getting all Gilliam-like!
Avatar Fri. 12/7/12 3:03pm DJKG:

welcome back, fred! hope you've been gone because gigs have been panning out for you. and hi ? and everyone else in radioland!
  Fri. 12/7/12 3:05pm Cecile:

hi, DJKG!
  Fri. 12/7/12 3:05pm tim from champaign:

Whoa, I didn't know Nancarrow wrote for strings. Intriguing.
  Fri. 12/7/12 3:07pm Dinah Shore:

*really* see the USA in your Chevrolet.
  Fri. 12/7/12 3:08pm fred:

Kurt, you guessed right. That and dance, I even had both a couple of fridays ago: contemporary dance with a live ensemble playing Grisey
  Fri. 12/7/12 3:09pm G:

Is the gif a picture of a Commonwealth auto? Or was the image of a US auto, flipped for aesthetic reasons?
Avatar Fri. 12/7/12 3:23pm DJKG:

i think i can speak as minnesota gif's proxy here and say that the photo was not flipped.
  Fri. 12/7/12 3:30pm G:

so maybe a commonwealth person??? my memory for faces is not great. anyone? or is it renato?
  Fri. 12/7/12 3:31pm green mountain man mark:

Love the minnesota jeff gif as always. Like how with the guy his gaze in on but the eye moves. The feeling I get is that the eye moves but still gazes at me, or what might be looking back.
  Fri. 12/7/12 3:33pm Carmichael:

Hiya Kurt and hey everyone. Ready for the fun!
  Fri. 12/7/12 3:36pm Mark:

Reverse type is a bitch to read. Cool Copland, tho.
  Fri. 12/7/12 3:44pm Minnesota Jeff:

The photo may have been flipped before I found it. I did no flipping.
Avatar Fri. 12/7/12 3:45pm DJKG:

except for the rest of our lids! hey-o!
  Fri. 12/7/12 3:48pm Minnesota Jeff:

I do apologize if the top of anyones head flipping into the air, exposing their brain to the elements.
  Fri. 12/7/12 3:48pm northguineahills:

Bunita Marcus, this makes me happy....
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:02pm Carmichael:

So that's Renato Carasone with the wandering eye?
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:04pm northguineahills:

I like the Renato Carosone as proto-cumbia rebajada.
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:10pm fred:

This is a another nice one. I love this show (but not enough to miss live music for it)
Avatar Fri. 12/7/12 4:11pm DJKG:

especially if you're the one playing it, fred!
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:11pm northguineahills:

I don't think I've heard any Lucier compositions that were penned w/in the last quarter century.
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:22pm fred:

I don't play, make or create anything. I just don't have the drive, and I'd rather spend my time hearing those who have
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:25pm northguineahills:

I used to make sounds, and other stuff, but the lead up to the last 6 months have robbed me of any desire to do so.
Avatar Fri. 12/7/12 4:30pm DJKG:

ah fred, i must have misunderstood down the line. maybe you said you needed "gigs" like paid work and i took it to mean playing shows. anyway, glad gigs of whatever sort have been coming your way.
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:32pm northguineahills:

Woah, really early Xenakis. Awesome!
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:33pm Minnesota Jeff:

This music is making me nervous.
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:34pm Mark:

Awesome indeed. You're playing some good weird stuff today. Weirdly good. And goodly weird.
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:35pm Minnesota Jeff:

Its making me feel like perhaps the cops are after me? Did I rob a bank???
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:35pm Honey Water:

@MN Jeff: Perhaps a swig of Nervine as advertised on the front page?
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:36pm fred:

I'm just addicted to live music. I write bugs to pay for that and bills.
Killer show so far
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:38pm fred:

@Honey Water: I'd recommend a swig of Laphroaig instead. Speaking of which...
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:39pm Honey Water:

Enjoying the, yep, Gilliamesque animation, too. Sitting in a car, it really would be served by an Ahhh-OOOOOOO-ga caption.
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:40pm r i s k y:

Kurt! Bravo, loving the show!
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:41pm northguineahills:

@fred: Laphroaig, oh do I wish I had a bottle of that lying around.
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:43pm Honey Water:

@Fred: I had to google that term. Scotch, eh? Just heard this a.m. how it was a big gaffe in the new Bond film that he'd be using the term Scotch whiskey -- it would just be called whisky. No "scotch" and no "e" for authenticity.
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:44pm Mark:

Right, I get it. How else do you follow Xenakis? Disco Bowie. But of course.
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:45pm Honey Water:

I don't have any Nervine on hand OR Laphroaig, so I've turned it down for the edgier bits, but have enjoyed the vast majority on a proper volume level, Kurt!
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:45pm northguineahills:

I suppose that Xenakis piece was before he went into his stochastic forays, but sounded similar to his 60s+ pieces.....
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:48pm fred:

@ngh: unfortunately, I never manage to have these lying around for long
@Honey Water: one can be a peat snob and just call Laphroaig an Islay. I'd rather drink it than debate about names though
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:50pm Honey Water:

Italian mannerisms? Whats-a-come-and-a-go!
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:51pm Minnesota Jeff:

Whoa, this is wild so far!
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:52pm Honey Water:

@Fred: Kippis!
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:52pm Mike East:

I'm asking Santa for a good Islay
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:53pm Honey Water:

Hey, Mike! Great entrance line! :)
Avatar Fri. 12/7/12 4:55pm DJKG:

Renato looks especially good with Alessandro playing.
  Fri. 12/7/12 4:57pm Honey Water:

Santa Islay pulled by Rudolph the red-wine reindeer.

Mmm, this is an interesting vocal section.
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:01pm northguineahills:

Howdee-ooo, Mike! That's a good Santa request. Unfortunately for me, I can't take an Islay on my carry-on.
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:02pm fred:

@Mike East: if Santa needs a hint, try this: bit.ly/Vt4Yzx I'm sure he's old enough to get through the age verification thingy. Only if you really like peat though
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:02pm Honey Water:

I see more than a tinge of Christopher Walken in Renato.
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:07pm Mike East:

Hey all! so glad this hectic week is ending, and I'm on vacation all next week.
fred - I think I may just leave Santa out of the equation and pull out my credit card. Thanks!
ngh - where are you flying?
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:08pm fred:

@Honey Water: I see that too, but maybe it's the eye. I'd have to see him dance to know for sure
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:12pm Honey Water:

I bet this group does not use an acronym.
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:13pm northguineahills:

Flying to my bros. in Orlando., and then joining our parents in Jacksonville.

  Fri. 12/7/12 5:16pm Honey Water:


Lots of Florida connections with these FMU and GTDR boards I've noticed.
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:16pm Carmichael:

Cool, ngh. Vacation time is always fun. Don't get slimed at that Nickelodeon place in Orlando.
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:17pm Honey Water:

@ngh: Maybe MfS will appear here (per my latest if you received it) and youse guys can talk shop?
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:21pm northguineahills:

Uggh, you have no idea, one of my bros. lives in Celebration, the Disney planned community. Be that they are former frat boys, they do have good green connections (they are twins).
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:27pm Honey Water:

This is really quite soothing. Audio Nervine.
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:28pm Cecile:

  Fri. 12/7/12 5:30pm Cecile:

perhaps the greatest band right now
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:30pm northguineahills:

Yeah, really soothing for the Necks...
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:30pm Listening Out There:

I'm ready for The Necks to segue into "In a Silent Way"...
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:30pm nyoukis:

  Fri. 12/7/12 5:32pm Cecile:

I hope this goes for another 40 minutes or so.
Avatar Fri. 12/7/12 5:33pm DJKG:

sorry, cecile. it's one of their records that actually has different tracks.
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:33pm Carmichael:

Head Hands & Feet!!
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:34pm Cecile:

but they're at least 20 min tracks, right?
Avatar Fri. 12/7/12 5:35pm DJKG:

  Fri. 12/7/12 5:38pm Cecile:

  Fri. 12/7/12 5:39pm fred:

Damn, this reminds me I haven't seen The Necks this year (though I did see Tony Buck). This drought has to end
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:39pm Honey Water:

@Carmichael: In farm country, it's Head, Hands, Heart and Health! [4-H]
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:41pm Cecile:

fred, I've never seen 'em. I might have to travel to see them.
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:41pm Honey Water:

This doesn't seem the tempo of a mazurka exactly.
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:43pm fred:

@Honey Water: does a mazurka have a tempo? I didn't know that
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:44pm Honey Water:

Blame it on Eurovision.

@fred: "Polish folk dance in triple meter, usually at a lively tempo, and with accent on the second or third beat." I must have had a mazurka or two in my piano books to learn.

Been some great music, Kurt! Have a safe and light-filled weekend all!
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:46pm fred:

Have a good one, Honey Water!
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:48pm Blacktooth:

I don't know what the hell that was, but the Slovanian dude was droppin' knowledge!!!!
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:48pm Cecile:

ah. mark ducret. nuts!
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:52pm fred:

I repeat myself, but this has been an amazing show
Avatar Fri. 12/7/12 5:53pm DJKG:

thanks, fred. and all y'all.
  Fri. 12/7/12 5:57pm northguineahills:

Thanks Kurt. Have a great weekend everyone!
  Sat. 12/8/12 9:56am Bunita Marcus:
