Good evening Ms Ryker:-)
(Speaking in a deep voice that sounds like a vampire)
  Mon. 5/26/14 8:08pm the Brooklyn kid:

First really hot day here in Brooklyn

My father served in ww2 on an aircraft carrier
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:09pm Bethany Ryker:

Yes, seems like the 'unofficial' beginning to summer brought some heat to the city
  Mon. 5/26/14 8:13pm doca:

Hi, Bethany and all. The last days saw the first really cold days here in South Brazil. I'm glad winter is finally coming.
  Mon. 5/26/14 8:15pm the Brooklyn kid:

Love love love piano music

No military holidays here in Germany. We do get Thursday off for Ascension, though.
  Mon. 5/26/14 8:18pm the Brooklyn kid:

I personally don't like any and all holidays! Except for one.... Halloween
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:20pm ranjit:

Not even National Blueberry Cheesecake Day?
  Mon. 5/26/14 8:21pm the Brooklyn kid:

Blueberry cheese cake is a diabetic nightmare!
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:25pm ranjit:

So is Halloween...
  Mon. 5/26/14 8:27pm the Brooklyn kid:

@ranjit quite true!
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:27pm ranjit:

Anyway, I really like this Lou Harrison.
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:29pm Bethany Ryker:

Gotta say, blueberry cheesecake does sound like a nice idea. Just the thought of it is enough!
  Mon. 5/26/14 8:30pm Rynac:

The Harrison piece was great!
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:30pm Rick from SC:

Cool, I'm listening in real time for once. Love your show.
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:32pm ranjit:

Huh, I just realized that I've never heard anything by Gavin Bryars except "Jesus' Blood".
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:33pm Bethany Ryker:

@ranjit - not even the Sinking of the Titanic?
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:33pm Bethany Ryker:

@Rick from SC - glad you are here! Welcome!
  Mon. 5/26/14 8:33pm Rynac:

This has a very dream-like quality.
  Mon. 5/26/14 8:33pm the Brooklyn kid:

I'm diabetic and without sugar I feel like a heroine addict going cold turkey!
God I need something sweet right now!!!!
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:35pm ranjit:

Yeah, not even that!
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:36pm davex:

Nice piece!
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:39pm Rick from SC:

reminds me a bit of clair de lune in this section
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:50pm davex:

Thanks, Bethany! This show could use another hour or two.
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:54pm thunderish' Jay:

hi every1! thanks for the music Bethany.. but trying to keep "Kojira" under sleep when he is already awake is a bit obnoxious.. too stringy i would guess
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:55pm dk:

_really_ liking this luciano berio piece.
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 8:55pm Bethany Ryker:

Non-intentional, but everything on this program with the exception of the Scriabin (from 1889) is from the 20th or 21st century...though Bryars is referencing Handel, throwing us back to the early 18th. More early music next week!
  Mon. 5/26/14 8:56pm 12539:

Thanks Bethany. Such a lovely hour of such a lovely day.
  Mon. 5/26/14 9:00pm P-90:

Thanks, DJ Bethany!
--have a great week!
Avatar Mon. 5/26/14 9:00pm ranjit:

Good night! Thanks for the music!
