whenever i hear this song, i can only think of Apu from the Simpsons singing it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:02pm Carmichael:

I come here all the time. For the strudel.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:03pm doca:

hey, Kurt.
@adrian: continuing the conversation from Bryce's show, I must say: wow
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:03pm fred:

Hello Kurt. As always, I trust your show to take the bite out of being home instead of at a show
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:03pm common:

carmichael: fast times?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:03pm Ike:

Wow, so the strudel is good here? I'll have to order that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:04pm Carmichael:

Yes, common. Dimone sang this while schlepping concert tickets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:05pm DCE:

Dimone...what a weasel
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:05pm common:

@carmichael: i can see it now. i think that was the funniest part of that flick. that and the bagel sticking out of sean penn's shorts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:06pm adrian in mpls:

@doca -- yeah, i was really lucky. they were troopers. especially, since we lived out in the country - so trekking a couple hours into the city for a show was a big deal. they're old hippies, so they were game for live music/new experiences/etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:07pm Ike:

Well, I'm def. not ordering THAT bagel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:07pm common:

@ike: Ha! good call!
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:08pm doca:

@Kurt: You bought this in Lisbon? I'm always thinking what the Clean Feed store should be like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:13pm i k e:

Hey @Fred, did I ask if you could stream the Haitian Creole pirate, Radyo Independans, that interferes w/WFMU and see if you could understand any of the ads & tweet details to @BkPirateWatch? I forgot to say that they only broadcast (and stream) in the evenings and late nights here. So they're probably only streaming when you're asleep, presumably to avoid the FCC's main operating hours here. Sometimes they're on all day on Sat. & Sun. though.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:20pm doca:

Hey guys, do you know Natália de Andrade, the Portuguese lyrical singer? (sorry, I'm Brazilian and I can't help but making fun sometimes of portuguese people)
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:22pm northguineahills:

Did I say something? no, okay, I am now.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:23pm doca:

This Natércia track has some resemblance with Jewish music. It would be nice to track down the Sefardite influence on Portuguese musical genres.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:24pm Kurt Gottschalk:

hey everybody! glad to be back!

doca, yes, a few lisboa finds. sadly clean feed's store (trem azul) closed for good the day i got there but i did get there that afternoon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:25pm Carmichael:

Mary rockin' the Espanol??!?
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:28pm northguineahills:

Closed Feed closed?!!! NOOOOOOOOO! :'(
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:31pm Kurt Gottschalk:

not the label, just the record store.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:34pm doca:

Hahah this is a funny song, @Kurt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:34pm fred:

@Ike: If these late nights last long enough, it could be early morning over here, so I could give it a try, provided I can find their stream. Creole is a language in itself though. I sometime listen to a local radio with some creole programming, and I can't say I understand much...
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:35pm Captain Sunday:

Can someone offer a running translation of all these songs?
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:37pm northguineahills:

Arto Lindsay was awesome a few weeks ago, played stuff from the 90s through this album.
  Fri. 8/15/14 3:37pm Dean:

This one translates as "Derrida's station," about deconstrucTV
  Fri. 8/15/14 3:39pm Dean:

And now "Gutter wallet."
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:40pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ngh, @ (l)pr?

(i was there)
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:42pm northguineahills:

yep, I must have missed you, I always lean on one of the pillars near the bar (for easy egress to the bar or bathroom).
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:42pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ha, i was right by you, up in the little balcony. super crowded it was, nice to see.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 3:45pm fred:

@ngh: If you ever come to Paris and see a show, I think we would have no trouble finding each other. I use the same strategy
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:48pm northguineahills:

Great minds think alike.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:49pm doca:

@Captain Sunday: That song told how the singer wanted to be a number of things but always became disillusioned by the professions. The one I remember, on the song's title, is that he wanted to be a journalist but then went to grad school and everybody was only criticizing everything and he didn't want to end up being a pain in the ass, so he didn't follow journalism.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:52pm Kurt Gottschalk:

thanks for the translation, doca!
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:55pm doca:

I googled and this Tiago Guilil seems to border on novelty song in a really good way. I'll check more out later.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:56pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i really like the whole cd. it actually seems like a fairly interesting label all around, although i only picked up a few titles.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 3:59pm doca:

yeah, it sounds interesting. for those not in lisbon, florcaveira.bandcamp.com
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:02pm einzelkind:

This Fabian Almazan track is the most beautiful song I've heard in a long time.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:13pm Cecile:

I have that live at Newport record.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:16pm Cecile:

I never knew that it was heavily overdubbed.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:19pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i didn't either - i don't think much of anyone did until it was reissued a few years ago when it was remastered.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:23pm Cecile:

When I had to fill in for the Duke Ellington hour at WCBN back in the day (it happened twice), I'd just play the whole Newport record, and fill it in with earlier pieces.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:24pm Cecile:

People would always call in and want to know about it. Without fail.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:24pm Whosondephone:

oh... this is freaking awesome!
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:26pm northguineahills:

what everyone above me said!
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:26pm Cecile:

Love the sidewinder.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 4:27pm fred:

This must have opened more than a few minds in those days. It should still work today
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:27pm Cecile:

I think the Turtle Island String Quartet did a nice version of this long ago.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:28pm Cecile:

I don't agree much with Irwin on most things, except for Lee Morgan. he was pretty great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 4:32pm adrian in mpls:

@Cecile - WCBN is where I got my first dose of freeform - driving around rural SE MI, it would come in and out like a wonderful, weird promise of another world
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:33pm Cecile:

DJing there for four years was pretty awesome. I'm lucky I got to have that chance
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:34pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ahhhh, distant radio. i used to work in connecticut - too far away to get wfmu (and well before i had a show) but i knew exactly which hills would give me a couple minutes of the old morning music programs on wbai.
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:35pm Cecile:

I used to listen to WLS into the wee hours in the UP. Even though it was top 40, it was better top 40 than what we had.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 4:36pm adrian in mpls:

yeah - there's something wonderful about the static washing in and out, those distant transmissions flitting through and then disappearing again...
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 4:37pm PKNY:

Idris Muhammad on the drums on this Lou Donaldson track. RIP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/15/14 4:37pm common:

i used to drive from philly to ny for my job years ago. I would always get excited when fmu started coming in.

i'm surprised rick nielson over there didn't get any attention!
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 5:14pm northguineahills:

One constant of Kurt's shows is Prince and Czech pop.

isn't that two?

sorry, jk

because it was there?

because why not?
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 5:37pm Bayta:

This is nice
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 5:40pm Bayta:

The funky tunes were nice also, but they just sort of started merging into each other. This last one stood out and made me listen.

  Fri. 8/15/14 5:53pm Dean:

Heard her duet with Myra Melford at what was once known as Maybeck Recital Hall a few years ago. Two pianos.
  Fri. 8/15/14 5:56pm Golde:

NorthGH's point raises several questions: What particular quality (if any) about the Czech pop music keeps your loyalty to it (correct me if I am wrong)? How is the live music in that scene (if you are familiar with it to that degree) in the states? Would love to drag the American friends into the right spot. My fam in Europe has a special place for that style... the best sort of schmaltz one can hear... always on the radio, too!
Avatar Fri. 8/15/14 5:57pm Kurt Gottschalk:

golde, no time! ask me next week.
