Hi, Matt. Been a while, but looking forward to this premiums ep!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 1:57pm Matt F:

Hi kat. Me too! I just hope that some of these CDRs that have been moldering on the WFMU library shelves are still playable. We'll see!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 1:58pm kat330:

Sure it will be like the fresh breeze blowing through our wide-open windows -- yes, 70 degrees here this aft.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:00pm listener james from westwood:

good thursday, matt and all!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:01pm listener james from westwood:

we're as close to that sort of weather in northern nj as we've been in weeks. 48 deg. and in full melt.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:03pm kat330:

You should get this by tomorrow. Although, that pattern's not been so evident this winter. We've had very little snow here.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:05pm kat330:

Dirty trombone!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:06pm Matt F:

Is that the same as a rusty trombone?
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:06pm listener james from westwood:

is that the same as a rusty venture?
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:07pm kat330:

Ha, I almost said that it certainly is not a *rusty* trombonist.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:08pm Gary:

Hola, amantes de la música!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:08pm Matt F:

Ciao Gary!

That'll be me
Hi Matt.

Howdy James! Matt, this is an awesome version of this song

I get that a lot.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:17pm listener james from westwood:

you can always tell that al green rhythm section.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:17pm kat330:

No matter what mood I begin in, Al always gets me in the mood.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:17pm Uncle Michael:

Hodges brothers, Simon.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:19pm Matt F:

That CDR needs to be re-burned. Sorry folks...
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:20pm Uncle Michael:

What a song.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:21pm Matt F:

Can't decide if I like this version or Dusty Springfield's better. Let's call it a draw.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:24pm Uncle Michael:

I'm good with that.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:24pm kat330:

Organ diddling.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:27pm Stanley:

Wow. I missed this vintage calypso premium. Sounds like it could be a belter.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:27pm Matt F:

Irwin did two volumes. Both killers.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:30pm kat330:

This great song was part of my mom's gospel trio repertoire.
  Thu. 2/20/14 2:30pm The Great Wandu:

Have you heard Carmen McRae's version of "Breakfast" backed by Dixie Flyers?
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:38pm Matt F:

Wandu- I have not! Gotta check that one out. I remember reading that she did some stuff with Dickinson & co.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:39pm Doug Schulkind:

Maybe me all-time favorite DJ premium was the one where Kevin Nutt filled a DVD-R with every track he played in a year's worth of Sinners Crossroad shows. Oh em gee!
  Thu. 2/20/14 2:42pm Andy S.:

"The Great Wandu" has invoked a fine Carmen McRae album, JUST A LITTLE LOVIN' (Atlantic SD-1568, 1970). Recorded at Criteria in Miami with the Dixie Flyers, it includes songs by Tom Waits, Tony Joe White, and Willie Dixon along with "Breakfast In Bed" and the title track. Also look for Carmen's versions of the Brian Wilson songs "Don't Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder)" and "I Guess I Just Wasn't Made For These Times" on another Atlantic LP, the title of which escapes me.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:42pm Brian in UK:

Up to the mark, Matt.

The lovely Laura was on the BBC the other day, playing a tune and talking. Over here touring.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:43pm listener james from westwood:

this pig cut has gotta be rex, right?
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:43pm listener james from westwood:

boom! yes indeed.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:44pm Matt F:

Thanks fer checkin in, Andy. I'm not as up on Carmen McRae's works as I oughta be.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:45pm Matt F:

This CD is tore up also. I knew this might be a problem.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:46pm Monica:

sorry bout that, matt!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:48pm Matt F:

It's OK, Mo! Next time go with maxell or memorex!
  Thu. 2/20/14 2:51pm Andy S.:

Ken Freedman once told me: "Andy, you're not supposed to be able to listen to WFMU all the time." That Black Lodge Singers track brought his sage words to mind...
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:52pm kat330:

Monica (& Laura), just means the really good stuff's been played over and over again. :)
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 2:53pm Uncle Michael:

A person could start a pretty good radio station if the entire library was nothing but WFMU DJ premiums.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:02pm Brian in UK:

Phew
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:04pm Jeff Golick:

(lurk 2: the enlurkening)
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:05pm kat330:

Hey, Jeff, thanks so much for IDing our mystery dude on the Squeezebox!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:06pm Stanley:

No Monica premium this year (sob!)
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:07pm kat330:

Bigger mystery now is how he's become WFMU's default image! We have never programmed any Internet radio for WNYC, period, so it's still so weird.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:08pm Doug Schulkind:

Matt, I included Carlos Malcolm's "Bonanza" on a past premium (I forget which one), so even your mic breaks are hewing to the theme.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:10pm Jeff Golick:

@kat330; Weird, indeed. Are you 100% sure that's who it is?
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:10pm Matt F:

Haha, yeah Doug, I saw that while poking through the library. Must have missed that the first time around. Ponderosa Stomp!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:10pm kat330:

Absolutely sure. THe exact photo we see is on Brian's website.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:12pm kat330:

Never realized the baldness because there are always the WFMU call letters and other text over the top of his head.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:13pm Jeff Golick:

"Headphone pattern baldness."
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:13pm Doug Schulkind:

Monica introduced me to Timi Yuro. Hail Monica!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:14pm kat330:

Ha! Here's the exact pic: pbs.twimg.com...
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:15pm Brian in UK:

The same man that wrote Barnacle Bill the Sailor. Hoagy the man.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:16pm kat330:

@Jeff: Philo sent him a Twitter hoping Brian himself might shed some light, but probably he'll never even see the tweet.
  Thu. 2/20/14 3:16pm drr:

I heard that Timi Yuro and thought it was like a deeper voiced Dinah Washington.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:16pm Monica:

check's in the mail, matt:) doug, you've got more timi than any of us now!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:17pm kat330:

Ahhhh.... love this....
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:18pm Doug Schulkind:

Timi is not for the timid, I've always said.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:19pm Matt F:

You have hundreds of Yuros, Doug. You're rich!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:19pm Brian in UK:

Missing you Monica.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:20pm Brian in UK:

@kat what photograph?
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:21pm kat330:

And this -- such a perfect soundtrack for a spring-like day. Thanks M & M!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:22pm kat330:

@Brian: Not you, Brian -- Brian Lehrer, the ubiquitous image appearing in the image viewer of our Squeezebox digital radio for about the last month when first tuning into WFMU.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:23pm kat330:

It's like the pixel equivalent of pirating a radio signal.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:25pm Brian in UK:

Sounds unpleasant. Is it still there?
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:26pm Monica:

back atcha, brian in uk + stanley. thx.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:27pm kat330:

No, not unpleasant at all. Just I'm a kurious kat and like to get to the bottom of such weirdnesses. There are only a handful of DJ images we ever see anyway: fxo, Irene, Bryce and, the one remaining the longest beyond Lehrer, SM Ken's Metropolis dude.
  Thu. 2/20/14 3:31pm The Great Wandu:

@Andy S. I second all that with one caveat--there's no Tom Waits covers on "Just a Little Lovin'" but no matter--a fine fine record and worth tracking down.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:34pm listener james from westwood:

i would also have believed this neuman cut to have been from the spazz.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:34pm Gary:

I can't believe I was seduced back into the comments by belching
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:35pm kat330:

[OT @Brian: Just turned on the Squeezebox and, sure enough, it IS Mr. Lehrer showing for Fabio's program. We mostly listen to Drummer on the Grace Digital, which displays no images, just text.]
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:39pm Scott C.:

Does anyone know who played on "It's A Gas" by Alfred E. Neuman? I mean, besides the usual gang of idiots?
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:40pm Matt F:

The Fonebone Brothers?
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:40pm listener james from westwood:

gary, in movie blurb talk, that comment would be "i ... was ... seduced ... by belching"
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:42pm Monica:

right on with the right on, matt.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:42pm Jeff Golick:

@ljfw: that would also be the linkbait version (+ AND YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED NEXT!)
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:46pm Gary:

Before You Dismiss Social Media Altogether, Watch This Former Convict Belch Upworthy Headlines Aloud To Rotating Stacks Of Zebras.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:50pm listener james from westwood:

lol! IIRC there's a tumblr out there that posts simpsons/springfield-oriented upworthy-esque heds.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:54pm kat330:

So again, thanks, Matt, for all this fresh air to accompany the fresh air filling our home this afternoon! S'long, all.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:56pm efd:

The takeaway here, aside from the wealth of awesome music available on WFMU DJ's premium CDs, is that you should digitize and back up your premium CDs immediately upon receipt.
  Thu. 2/20/14 3:57pm Andy S.:

Probably I don't have to tell you that this disc (w/"Jordan River") is also noisily defective.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:58pm Doug Schulkind:

Sin, Matt, sin!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:59pm Matt F:

Indeed. Also, siometimes a computer will read the defective disc properly and a new copy can be reburned. It seems to be happening with discs 10 or more years old...
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:59pm Gary:

Thanks for the Premium Thrills, Matt!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:59pm listener james from westwood:

many thanks for yet another excellent pre-marathon show idea!
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 3:59pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks Matt...the hours...they fly.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 4:01pm Jeff Golick:

Great show, Matt. Thanks! The premium archives, they are deep.
Avatar Thu. 2/20/14 4:04pm Matt F:

Tanx all! See you in the future!
