The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

The first few beats made me think of ESG's Moody
  Mon. 12/10/12 12:06pm Cecile:

good stuff!

Hey VDC/Irene! "Cile!
Avatar Mon. 12/10/12 12:17pm Irene:

Hey everybody! Nice to have you here in WFMU-land.
  Mon. 12/10/12 12:19pm Van in DC:

Irene, did you see NPR's Top 10 Albums lists? Theo Bleckmann made the Jazz list with the Kate covers.
  Mon. 12/10/12 12:23pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Hi Irene and hello one and all
  Mon. 12/10/12 12:40pm Primanti Brother:

Just a quick happy next birthday greeting to Van in DC.
  Mon. 12/10/12 12:42pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Happy birthday, Van
  Mon. 12/10/12 12:45pm Van in DC:

Ha ha. As if we will make it to next August...hello 12/21 :)
  Mon. 12/10/12 12:49pm don:

Sera Cahoone is at Knit this Thurs and was at Maxwell's last week-very disappointing turnout there for this very gifted person with a fine 2012 release.
  Mon. 12/10/12 12:55pm pierre:

Bonjour Irene !
Hola magic listeners !
  Mon. 12/10/12 12:57pm pierre:

this is serious beauty here !
  Mon. 12/10/12 12:59pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Loving the music, Irene, great to listen whilst I cook dinner, Roast Pork, Roast tatties, broccoli and petit pois is on the menu this evening
  Mon. 12/10/12 1:03pm 12539:

That was lovely, as is this, but you already knew that.
  Mon. 12/10/12 1:04pm sfrances in va:

hello all! dreamy set so far, perfect while i tend to bed making, laundry & eventual curtain making...
Avatar Mon. 12/10/12 1:06pm Irene:

I haven't seen it yet, Van, although I've seen John Schaefer's list. Will have to check it out later. Glad Theo made the list. Oh, and happy birthday!
  Mon. 12/10/12 1:20pm Van in DC:

Here it is...Yair tweeted this earlier actually.

  Mon. 12/10/12 1:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Irene and fellow "magic listeners"!

Lurking until I heard your mention of iTunes 11 (never make decisions before having coffee, or in my case after having whiskey! :) The new iTunes is more like the iPad layout, a bit more confusing and a bit more streamlined, with customized options fairly hidden. IF you want a layout similar to the old iTunes, display music by "Songs", or else by "Playlists" and check "Music". This will give you the familiar grid style, and then you can choose columns and sort by any category you wish, as before.
  Mon. 12/10/12 1:39pm pierre:

euh guys, I have a english question to ask you, what does the verb "prepping" mean ?
  Mon. 12/10/12 1:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Bonjour pierre!
"Prepping" is a short way of saying "to prepare".
  Mon. 12/10/12 1:42pm pierre:

alright, thanks Matt (and bonjour) !
  Mon. 12/10/12 1:47pm Matt from Springfield:

No prob, pierre!

Hi Van! What's this about an August-in-December birthday?...
  Mon. 12/10/12 1:49pm Van in DC:

Hi Matt! I really don't know. But I do have suspicions. :)
Avatar Mon. 12/10/12 1:51pm Irene:

Thanks for the advice, Matt, although this doesn't exactly help me. I like to have things like file type, sample rate, date added, all in columns, along with the album covers fanning out at the top. It helps me stumble across thngs I forgot I had in there. I found where to do the column display, but I liked the old display better. Dang Apple! Always gotta "Make things better."
  Mon. 12/10/12 1:56pm Van in DC:

@Matt - I will say that my suspicions arise in a place where I totally agreed with you on Extradition singer sounding amazingly like Sandy Denny :)
  Mon. 12/10/12 1:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@Van: Well, I'll just have to see how that pans out! If it is your "birthday", I think you should get a song request :)

Incidentally, I couldn't get in touch with you beforehand, but obviously we didn't have a Meetup last weekend. Something with Dan in Falls Church's mother, and I also didn't hear anything from Ace or Greg. Once I can get at least 3 listeners, a VA meetup is on, followed by a DC meetup. Though I may want to skip ahead and do a DC-based one first, there's at least a larger pool of listeners based there.
  Mon. 12/10/12 1:57pm Elena:

The song that was on around 12:50 was amazing! Who was that?
  Mon. 12/10/12 1:58pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irene: Yeah, afraid I don't know yet how to create that kind of setup in the new iTunes, but gotta agree with you: any "improvement" or "update" sent out in any software, they always seem to take away something cool along with it...!
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@Van: Aha! In that case, I join the chorus/petitioners/Kate fans in wishing you a Happy Next Birthday! :D
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:02pm Van in DC:

:)
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:06pm Ruby:

Dig, dig!
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:13pm George:

Gold mettle for today's show.
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:37pm v k:

kudos on Husky track; instantly adored
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes, new Verlaines!
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:47pm Robert:

Thanks, the previous set (if you can call a sequence of DJ selections a "set") was perfect for my mood.
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:51pm Robert:

Never know it is when you feel a bit "comfortably numb". Sometimes I'll want something lively to snap me out of it, but other times, as this aftenoon, I just want to go with it.
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:51pm don:

Just emailed Graeme; he'll be happy to know you have been playing latest Verlaines. He's been a friend for 20+ years, Don
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:55pm Robert:

The great thing about "prepare" is that it's one of those verbs that can be used either transitively or intransitively. If you use it intransitively, it's implied to be reflexive, preparing yourself. But then, couldn't I say the same about the French "preparer"? Would one have to "se prepare", or could s/he simply "prepare" without an explicit object?
Avatar Mon. 12/10/12 2:55pm Irene:

Thanks Don! I've been a big fan of Graeme's for a long time too. This new one is a nice surprise with all the horn arrangements.
Avatar Mon. 12/10/12 2:57pm Irene:

Thanks for joining me everybody! Catch you all next week.
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:57pm Robert:

Est-ce qu'on peut preparer, et ca dirait qu'il prepare lui-meme, ou doit on dit qu'il se prepare?
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:57pm Van in DC:

Cocteau Twins!

What a great show, many thanks Irene!
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:57pm green mountain man mark:

If you sit down, be quite for a little while, say three or five minutes, you can hear moods. They are kind of musical. Not kind of musical, they are.
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:58pm Cheri Pi:

Cocteau Twins!
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Thank YOU Irene! Lovely show as always, and special kudos for ending on the Cocteau Twins! Epitome of the 4AD sound!

Have a nice day everyone!
  Mon. 12/10/12 2:58pm Robert:

Darn! Shoulda written "doit on dire".
