whoa there Neil!
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:03pm Cecile:

please Traktor the crap out of this, plz.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:05pm fred:

Good afternoon Kurt. Please do what Cecile said.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:06pm fred:

Though does anything remain if one traktors the crap out of Neil Diamond?
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:07pm Cecile:

run over it with a tractor.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:07pm KP:

Hey, Kurt. I am ... happy to be here.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 3:07pm Droll:

Then let me be first to defend Neil! Few performers can attract three generations of fans who sing along every word. He's a jingle master.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:08pm DCE:

his lack of eyeballs is a little creepy
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:09pm Cecile:

Droll, I know all of that, but I still don't like him.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:09pm fred:

@Droll: there's a guy over here in France who has the same cross generational appeal. He's such an embarrassment that his original country didn't want him back
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 3:11pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I want to see Richard Clayderman bludgeon Neil Diamond with Cliff Richard.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 3:11pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

THEN AND ONLY THEN will the messiah be born upon this earth.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 3:12pm Droll:

I admit he's an acquired taste, like stinky, runny cheese served for dessert. To each their own. I like both.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:14pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i disliked neil for the longest time. it was listening to jonesy that i realized his mastery. hello, everyone!
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 3:15pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

OK, then let's have Richard Clayderman bludgeoning Tony Orlando with Cliff Richard.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 3:15pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Dammit, something needs to be hit with Cliff Richard.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:17pm fred:

@RTD: I nominate Nils Frahm. Aim for his hands, a few friends of mine would thank you
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:18pm Cecile:

I liked his stuff for other people. Then he started writing "important" songs and singing. Not a fan of those.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 3:19pm northguineahills:

There were feet, everywhere!
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:30pm Mike East:

Jonesy has opened up my eyes to a lot of artists in that same way, Kurt.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:31pm Kurt Gottschalk:

His is one of my favorite shows on the station, for seriously.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:33pm Mike East:

Mine as well. He's got a way of speaking to the moment with his song selection. In my wife's wedding vows, she promised to dance with me to Glen Jones any sunday upon request....for the most part she's stuck to it.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:37pm Cecile:

chopped and screwed. dig it.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:40pm fred:

Jonesy made me appreciate Sinatra. But now I only tune in for the banter, maybe a guess at which song will come right after. But it's too much of the same for me
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:44pm Cheri Pi:

She don't like his face, his voice, EVErYTHING!!!
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:49pm Mike East:

the banter is indeed reason enough to tune in. That X. Ray has quite the wit.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:49pm Carmichael:

Hey Kurt, und aloha meinen Freunden. I don't know WTF is the big deal about Neil. He's on some bizarre *comeback* now among the urban hipsters. And you know what THEY'RE like ...
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:51pm Carmichael:

Hey Fred, who is the performer of which you speak? Johhny Halliday? Jerry Lewis?
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 3:56pm fred:

Halliday. I think the Jerry Lewis thing has been over for a while
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 4:00pm fred:

I heard it's "wave at Saturn" day. How about some Sun Ra?
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 4:03pm Ike:

Fred @3:40, I know what you mean. Banter is great. I tolerate the music. It's better than it was in the 90s. Too much MC Hammer and such.

Mike East @3:33, that's so romantic.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 4:05pm northguineahills:

Right now we're in the window to wave at Saturn, at least for the next 80+ minutes.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 4:12pm Cheri Pi:

Our heat wave, just broke! My beersies won't be so sweaty tonight.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 4:15pm northguineahills:

Finally got cooler, only 96 right now.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 4:16pm northguineahills:

(36C)
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 4:20pm Carmichael:

Well, we're heating up (100f) this weekend. Every time I want to go to the State Fair, the mercury soars. The Vomitron is gonna have to wait until at least Monday.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 4:21pm Cecile:

same here, pi.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 4:24pm northguineahills:

Well, today is the first day it didn't get up to 98F/37C Since Monday. Tuesday was 103F/39C.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 4:27pm danjoseph:

Cool piano music for a hot day, thanks Kurt!
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 4:28pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

relative heat index in DC is 107 i think. Not due to break until sunday, and even then..... ehhh....
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 4:30pm the glowing one:

I think due to recent events Kurt should play Gil Scott-Heron's We Almost Lost Detroit
  Fri. 7/19/13 4:31pm MMDB:

No Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes?!
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 4:33pm Carmichael:

I have a missed call from Minneapolis. That wasn't you was it, Cecile?
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 4:36pm Kurt Gottschalk:

We Almost Lost Detroit - nice call, glowone.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 4:36pm danjoseph:

...I've never heard WFMU sound so....."contemporary classical"....love it!
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 4:38pm Carmichael:

The Minotaur's playlists range from raucous to introspective, often within the same set.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 4:41pm northguineahills:

MEEEEEEEEEEEEE LIIIIIIKKKKKKKKEEEEEEEEEEY! (the Tenney)
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 4:49pm Carmichael:

Oh yeah, beersies. Many of which .. uh ... of which many ... uh ...which of ...
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 4:52pm northguineahills:

Tempted to go down to the ground floor for a beersy as my database I'm tapping into has decided to take a siesta.
  Fri. 7/19/13 4:55pm common:

Beersie time!!!!!!!!! happy beers to all!!!
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 4:56pm fred:

@NGH: if you see the DBA having one there, let him/her finish it before breaking the news
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 4:57pm Cecile:

no, carm, I think it was The Artist.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 4:58pm northguineahills:

Thanks, Fred!
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 4:58pm Cecile:

Another good one is the Dirtbombs "I Hear The Sirens."

Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 5:09pm Carmichael:

I might burn a little this evening, Rev. I picked up some killer old albums that need MP3ing.
  Fri. 7/19/13 5:10pm tuner fish:

Love this set!
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 5:10pm Stanley:

Wonderful music, Kurt. Just bought tickets to the Musikfabrik concert at The Edinburgh Festival. Great to hear them on the radio.
  Fri. 7/19/13 5:11pm Urania:

Have you guys heard the latest from The Damned? Kurt, do you have The Damned?
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 5:11pm Kurt Gottschalk:

thanks stanley and tuner!
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 5:12pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

nice, carm... The goal here this weekend is to do a little R&D to figure out what makes music sound COLD. And do it. A lot. Missus is out of town until sun.night, so I'll be living in studio...
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 5:12pm Kurt Gottschalk:

Urania! i don't know the damned. is that some new band?
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 5:12pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i don't play new bands.
  Fri. 7/19/13 5:13pm Urania:

OMG, they are amazeballz
  Fri. 7/19/13 5:13pm Urania:

Also, so good.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 5:14pm northguineahills:

Kurt, you're so cute....
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 5:16pm Carmichael:

One time the Pogues were playing in Germany. A drunk heckler kept asking they could play The Turkey Song by The Damned. They didn't understand what he was saying, but they ended up writing The Turkish Song of the Damned, which appears on the If I Should Fall From Grace With God album.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 5:19pm Kurt Gottschalk:

hahahhahaha! that's brilliant!
  Fri. 7/19/13 5:20pm Urania:

See??? I was that drunk heckler, and it's because of me they wrote that song! But what I was REALLY saying was "Greek Songs Kick Turkish Songs' Asses"
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 5:22pm Kurt Gottschalk:

HA!
  Fri. 7/19/13 5:22pm Inner Ear Detour:

Hi, Kurt. I liked that Eric Hofbrauer version of "God Moves". So long.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 5:23pm northguineahills:

Willie & Merle. What a combo!
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 5:24pm northguineahills:

Schiidt, Kurt, you've made me a star whore, that's 7 in a row.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 5:25pm Kurt Gottschalk:

  Fri. 7/19/13 5:27pm Urania:

Do we all need to leave the chat room so that you and Northguineahills can be alone?
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 5:29pm Carmichael:

No Urania, just avert your eyes at the proper moment.
Avatar    Fri. 7/19/13 5:29pm Kurt Gottschalk:

Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 5:29pm northguineahills:
