  Fri. 12/28/12 9:18am Uncle Michael:

A close friend of mine and his brother once made it onto national television during a college football game...on the sidelines, flipping coins for a kick in the ass. I wonder if there are many songs about that pastime.

@Doug Have you heard from Owl at all since the demise of HW?
  Fri. 12/28/12 9:47am Andy S.:

This monks music is what Ken Freedman must have meant when he once told me: "Andy, you're not supposed to be able to listen to WFMU all the time."
  Fri. 12/28/12 9:47am Hügo:

This sounds like the thing - a tibetan ceremonial trumpet - we have hanging from the ceiling downstairs. We had to call in someone skilled from playing in a brass band to get a sound out of it. Our neigbour called and wondered what was going on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/28/12 9:51am Doug Schulkind:

I have in fact heard much from Owl in the intervening months — and it has been, shall I say, a challenging interaction. Not much more I can say. I have the highest esteem for his musical senses and sensibilities.

  Fri. 12/28/12 10:17am Matt from Springfield:

It's easy to forget how many covered "Hey Jude" when it was first out, it was in demand among singers.

Similarly with another genre, "Wichita Lineman" had so many covers around the same time (DOUG: any FOREIGN language versions of "Wichita Lineman" you know about?? :)
  Fri. 12/28/12 10:18am ndbob:

I think that a good idea for an hour show would be - bizarre cover versions

Something in the back of my head says YES. Gotta get my intern to investigate (the back of my head)
  Fri. 12/28/12 10:22am Matt from Springfield:

@Doug: The research team is on it! Thanks!

@NDBob: Yes! Not necessarily "incorrect music" cover versions, but in unusual or different styles from the originals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/28/12 10:22am Doug Schulkind:

Most of my earliest WFMU marathon premiums were exactly that — collections of odd and lovely cover songs. "Cover Your Ears," "Run for Cover," Cover Your Tracks," "Pull Off the Covers" were just a few of the titles. This was back when all of WFMU's marathon premiums were still on cassette.

Yes, I am that old.
  Fri. 12/28/12 10:24am Uncle Michael:

I've done a show along those lines.
  Fri. 12/28/12 10:25am Matt from Springfield:

  Fri. 12/28/12 10:26am Hügo:

Oh, yeah, I still keep a cassette player around (not to mention a reel to reel).
  Fri. 12/28/12 10:27am ndbob:

sounds great Doug! .. maybe some of the songs could end up on future marathon premiums as well

More like "logorrhea", one of my fave words from the Grandiloquent Dictionary!
  Fri. 12/28/12 10:35am Matt from Springfield:

Kollywood! I was thinking Karnataka, but actually Tamil:
"Kodambakkam, an area of Chennai, where Tamil language feature films are produced"

There's so many places (and cultures) in India and a corresponding film industry--most of the -ollywoods are used in one way or another.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/28/12 10:35am Doug Schulkind:

logorrhea = verbal diarrhea?
  Fri. 12/28/12 10:38am Uncle Michael:

@ndbob my pleasure
  Fri. 12/28/12 10:38am Matt from Springfield:

It's also a psychological condition, but I usually use it as a stand-in for "verbal diarrhea"!
  Fri. 12/28/12 10:40am Hügo:

or streaming consciousness?

  Fri. 12/28/12 10:59am Holly in NC:

Morning, Doug and friends! Can't listen now, but this show will definitely soundtrack my late evening.
Which reminds me - those of us for whom listening is often dependent on fancy phones need to let station mgr Ken know that we'd LOVE the ability to access GTDS stream archives on our mobile devices of choice! I weep in frustration on a daily basis ;-)
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:01am Uncle Michael:

@Doug. That's weird for two reasons. First, there's another Mike Newman on local radio in my town...on a country station. Second, the honcho at Viva Radio where I do a voice tracked show is a DJ on EVR and he's never mentioned that to me.

Ken considers is a top priority to make sure that the next version of the mobile app for WFMU includes the ability to access archived shows from the various streams.

But it DOESN'T HURT to let him know you want it!

  Fri. 12/28/12 11:08am Matt from Springfield:

Wiki duly formatted for Jayne Cortez - once married to Ornette Coleman, and mother to Denardo, I just learned. Once again someone just added the date of death but didn't properly categorize; justice is now done to Ms. Cortez's most accessible short biography.
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:08am Uncle Michael:

Maybe Kenzo could provide for registered accounts that skip the captcha.

Harps of Fuchsia Kalmia, always welcome here!
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:09am Holly in NC:

Oooh! I've gotten 666 at least twice!
Has anyone else had the misfortune of having to type in friggin' ad copy @ Mediafire? For example, the captcha may be along the lines of "who will deliver your packages on time"? and you have to type "federal express" (or ups, or whoever is 'sponsoring the captcha). Makes me ill.
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:10am El Thatchmo:

Wow, this one sure has my toe a tappin!
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:10am Matt from Springfield:

@UM: I think that was under discussion at some point - it's not scheduled, but whenever Kenzo next overhauls the comment board system, that's apparently one of the features he wants to incorporate.

  Fri. 12/28/12 11:16am Matt from Springfield:

@UM: I totally agree, I think program styling should correspond to its functions and not clutter with excess graphics or features (I always like the classic Winamp view). I would hope they keep the simple (and unique) stylings of the playlists, but an option for registered listeners to sign in would be convenient.

In my past life in retail, I loved watching folks' varying reactions to register ringing $6.66. Most didn't care, but some would add to purchase, some would remove from purchase, and 1 lady ran shrieking out of store, never to return (my fave) ;-)

@Holly: Hahaha! That's rich! Well, if that sum didn't come up so GD often, I wouldn't bother with the edit bypass. But now it's become a sort of act of defiance for me. Against whom? I dunno -- Kenzo? :)
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:23am Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Mr. Gristlecorn sounds like he might run a bar down there :)

@Van: If you wear that shirt, you should also blare this piece for the whole office to hear!

All the zip codes here begin with 666.

Depends on what you were selling. One imagines salvation costing at least $6.67.
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:24am listener james from westwood:

greetin's to the 11:00 shift!
my childhood phone number began in 666. also, my freshman year p.o. box at college. never got the devil's mail by accident, sadly.

@Holly: Never happened to me as a grocery store cashier, but there was a certain chicken meal at Roy Rogers a couple years ago that, after taxes and all, wound up as $6.66! Of course that "problem" is usually solved by rising prices...!
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:25am kat330:

@UM: Yes, guess that's true.

@MfS: That voice he uses when he wants to pester me is some sort of hybrid of Satchmo and Tom Waits.
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:25am Holly in NC:

Uncle Michael - My phone # includes '666' in sequence. Many folks have advised me to change my phone number, but I refuse. I suspect that decision may cost me some business on occasion, but c'est la vie.

I talked on the phone not too terribly long ago with a fellow working for a record label (Sunnyside) that has released some fairly recent Roswell Rudd recordings. He had never heard of "Maine."

How can it be that this record remains out of print. How?!
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:30am Matt from Springfield:

@Holly: I've noticed '666' in sequence of some TV commercial numbers. They usually announce it (e.g. 1-800-555-6668) as "1, 800, 555, 66, 68".
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:30am Uncle Michael:

One time these two thugs were pounding the crap out of me in a Vegas parking lot and Doug stuck his head out the back door and said, 'Ok, that's enough, boys.'

I have a feeling that "Maine" will be among the contenders for best track of the 2012 playlists, but we will have to wait and see for that.

I hope my cow-orkers enjoyed that as much as I did bwaaa ha ha :)
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:33am Matt from Springfield:

@kat: And make sure there's pork in there too! It's the commonality between German (pork and sauerkraut) and Southern (black eyed peas and pork) New Years traditions.
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:33am kat330:

@Holly: I hadn't heard about collards being NY's luck food. But probably both cabbage and collards might be gilding the lily. One year I actually boiled a dime with the cabbage per some "good luck" tradition.

Not sure I'm up for selecting a "Best Track of 2012." Just picking one song from each playlist was painful enough. And besides, if I'd prepared today's show a few hours later, I might have come up with completely different selections.

@Kat - collards a southern thing. Being of German heritage & currently in the South, I endorse pork in everything ;-) (Sorry, Lincoln and everyone else whose beliefs prohibit eating of the swine)

Yes Brian, Fontella Bass passed away in the last day or 2.
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:50am kat330:

I imagine it's been done -- perhaps many times over -- but I think it'd be a hoot to record under foreign artist names and track titles that, when innocently sounded out phonetically by the DJ, it says rude stuff like: "That was Dizhay and Wadan Esyuar."

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/28/12 11:54am Doug Schulkind:

One time ages ago I was playing Fontella Bass w/the Art Ensemble of Chicago singing "Theme De Yoyo." A few minutes in, the studio phone rang and it was Station Manager Ken worried that he heard a curse in the lyric. I assured him it wasn't a curse, then spent many hours after the show trying to dig up the actual lyrics as proof. Not so easy. Ultimately, I emailed Fontella Bass to ask her, but never got a response. I did however get an email from the author of the poem used in the song.

It is "a long fork" not "a long fuck."

I always assumed Ms. Bass was completely offended by my query.
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:55am Holly in NC:

Here, to be exact:
  Fri. 12/28/12 11:55am Matt from Springfield:

"Bass received a star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame in the Loop in May 2000" -- I presume Ted Barron will play a tribute to her next Thursday then.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/28/12 11:59am Doug Schulkind:

I had to go back and check. It was "a long fart" not "fork" or "fuck." Once I found the lyrics, I realized I HAD to do "Theme De Yoyo" with Hoof 'n' Mouth Sinfonia.

Your head is like a yoyo,
your neck is like the string,
Your body's like a camembert
oozing from its skin.

Your fanny's like two sperm whales
floating down the Seine
Your voice is like a long fart
that's music to your brain.

Your eyes are two blind eagles
that kill what they can't see
Your hands are like two shovels
digging in me.

And your love is like an oil-well
Dig, dig, dig, dig it,
On the Champs-Elysees.
