So Anka is today's touchstone. God, do they still make commercials into pop songs? Sure were a lot of them back in those days.
Avatar Fri. 9/27/13 3:07pm northguineahills:

Thanks to Ken, I still have Bohemian Rhapsody stuck in my head, and no WFMU dj, or seeing Marcia Bassett, Tom Carer, or Gate, has erased that fuckin' earworm. Can you, Kurt, I beg of you, please eliminate it?

Avatar    Fri. 9/27/13 3:38pm Parq:

Honestly, I think I'm going to be traumatized more by hearing that Kodak commercial jingle at the end of every set that I ever was by Ken's BH show.

*looks down to the ground floor bar* I'm in pat (err...pi?)! I'll just let gravity take over b/c anything else will just slow me down.

crap, I came into work late b/c of the Marcia Basset/Tom Carter/Gate concert last night. The first time I woke up hung over on a work morning since I started working 3+ months ago.
Avatar    Fri. 9/27/13 3:52pm dc pi:

"pine-fresh" huh, as long as Bryce doesn't show up...

Lemme tell you something, they don't call that beer Nosferatu for NUTHIN! PHEW!
Avatar Fri. 9/27/13 3:53pm Brigitte Golde:

Wow, this is really intense if you actually understand German.
Avatar Fri. 9/27/13 3:53pm northguineahills:

I've ridden in trunks before, but they weren't pine fresh.

Avatar    Fri. 9/27/13 3:59pm Kurt Gottschalk:

hey at - thanks for tuning in. i'll see if i can get to it. long piano track cued up now tho.
Avatar Fri. 9/27/13 4:00pm Brigitte Golde:

I just read up on Geerken and he has a fascinating background. Thank you for sharing that piece. It's very striking.
Avatar    Fri. 9/27/13 4:02pm Kurt Gottschalk:

the whole double disc is great, bridgitte. there's another disc he did with don moye of the art ensemble and john tchicai that i really like: www.allaboutjazz.com...
  Fri. 9/27/13 4:04pm AT:

Never mind the long piano track, perfect for my extra large 1L Super Bock (portuguese beer..., sorry about the metric system) lol! Very nice music, love it! Obrigado!

Gravity took me to the elevator, and since I don't take smoke breaks, I took a Friday beersie break.

Avatar Fri. 9/27/13 4:11pm hamburger:

some how seem to think I heard "Steady as a Rock" being played as slowed down bed music from this show... / maybe just me - but it's a fun way to sing..
Avatar    Fri. 9/27/13 4:14pm Kurt Gottschalk:

don't remember that one hamb, but could easily be! almost all of 45s in the big box i found are 1972-1975.
Avatar Fri. 9/27/13 4:15pm Brigitte Golde:

Terrific and I appreciate the suggestion. That particular piece you played I must hear again more carefully. It is rare for me to come across German pieces about the war State-side. Very powerful for a German ear to hear.
Avatar Fri. 9/27/13 4:15pm northguineahills:

I'd never had guess that this was Muhal Richard Abrams. Suite!
Avatar Fri. 9/27/13 4:16pm northguineahills:

I wonder what 'Da Groove Commanders' are up to...
Avatar    Fri. 9/27/13 4:27pm Kurt Gottschalk:

oh, hey - they sent me a previously unreleased recording! i'll be playing it sometime in the coming weeks.

haha! thanks mark. yes, minnesota gif works magic!
  Fri. 9/27/13 4:34pm AT:

Hey mister Kurt, small question, does Kenneth Goldsmith still have a show in WFMU? He gave a live show in Lisbon some time ago, that's how I know WFMU. It was great. Check out Oporto project in Lisbon: http://oportolisboa.blogspot.pt
They deal mainly with independent/experimental film screenings. Should come to Lisbon for holidays, just a beautiful city. Best. Over and out!

Cool, more of that Serbian/Czech stuff you played a few weeks ago. I can picture her wearing go-go boots.

Is anyone else getting a Photobucket ad instead of Anka?
Avatar Fri. 9/27/13 5:35pm Mary Wing:

Is it just me, or is Minnesota Jeff's gif not showing up on the playlist?
