The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

Bowie, nice
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:10pm Van in DC:

Hi there Irene and fellow listeners
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:10pm V Priceless:

Hey Irene! Great DB track! How brilliant is Mike Garson??
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:11pm DCE:

I got this mixed up with "wild is the wind". Insane!
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:13pm kat330:

Hey folks. On hold with ATT, so it may be many minutes before I get back...
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:14pm DCE:

your call is important to them
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:14pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Van, can't be that long before you are heading to our shores.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:15pm Van in DC:

Soon enough, Sean! Can't wait!
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:15pm DeaconDave:

Hello Irene - loving the tunes so far
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:17pm Van in DC:

Wondering who all is on KaTe's guest list. Toyah herself said she was elated to get an invite
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:18pm KP:

Good nice afternoon, Irene.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:18pm Sean in Bristol UK:

I am hearing rumours that most of "Hounds of Love" will get an airing which is fab as this is my favourite album, "Big Sky' is going to rock!
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:19pm Van in DC:

Yeah, the whole Ninth Wave is a major part of it I hear.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:20pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Van, if you have time give me a ring, it would be nice to catch up
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:21pm Van in DC:

That would be wonderful Sean
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:22pm Van in DC:

lol just after I mention "Ninth Wave" ha ha
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:30pm KP:

This is something of a Renaissance on WFMU
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:30pm KP:

Off the top of my head i'd say this is the original Relf version of the band.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:33pm kat330:

There ARE rings of hell, and one of them is named AT&T, sigh.
Back now and actually can begin to listen.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:34pm KP:

Just ordered the two cd version. FMU should get a kickback, at least when Irene's on.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:36pm KP:

And I just received Beth Sorrentino's new one! Listening to Irene is expensive.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:43pm kat330:

@DCE: Yeah, so important it required 45 mins. and 4 different CSR's and STILL no one can take my bill payment (auto system is down). Mind boggling. But now there's lovely music to soothe this savage wildcat. :)
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:51pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Everybody! Making a lazy intro to the playlist comments now. Takes a little while for me to get settled in sometimes! Sorry to make you buy so music music, @KP. Can't help it myself.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:53pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Right I can settle down and listen after a fraught couple of hours completing the invoice for the umpires payments from last weekend's softball tournament, it was my first time as crew chief,
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:55pm kat330:

@SEAN: We have "The Walking Dead: Season 4" on order. I recall you are watching the series, too?
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 12:58pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Kat, yes, finished Season 3 a few weeks back, some of the dose form the softball will be used to purchase season 4, can't wait!
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:00pm Van in DC:

Ha. Head over Heels lyrics, then I see "Snowblind" ...is Graph Rabbit a Cocteau Twins fan?
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:03pm Irene Trudel:

Quite possibly, Van. I'll have to ask them (trying to get Graph Rabbit in to play live in October).
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:07pm kat330:

@Sean: From your fair isle: We watched a good little film yesterday called "Locke" by Steven Knight and starring Tom Hardy. Amazing how engaging a one-man film can be -- just him alone in his car and driving for 80 mins., with many off-camera phone call performances that are great as well.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:08pm drewo:

Good morning Irene, the show sounds wonderful from my perch here in sunny AZ. Digging the Moodies deep cut.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:09pm Van in DC:

So apparently the playing of this piece is timely...1969 To Our Children's Children's Children...?
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:12pm Van in DC:

ha, just that enough time has passed (almost?) for their children's children's children to listen
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:13pm kat330:

Heh, I have a loud wren outside our window in a call-and-response w/ your bed birds, Irene.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:16pm Van in DC:

So Sean, I see the live KT show on Sept 10 then trying to fly to Geneva the next day to see Marissa Nadler live, then jet back to London in time to catch my flight back to DC. Should be interesting
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:17pm Jay/London:

Hi Irene just checking in just back from the south of France
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:20pm slugluv1313:

lovely show, Irene!
ahhh that first Renaissance LP . . . i loved (and STILL love!) that song "Island" -- would transport me away when i was a kid/teenager . . . as did "Aladdin Sane" too :)
Graph Rabbit are AMAZING! beautiful song, haunting lyrics and vocals!!!
gotta sign off and get to work but wanted to wish you and listeners a great big HAPPY MONDAY!
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:21pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Kat, I missed "Locke" at the cinema, heard great things about it. At the moment the new releases are awful, "Inbetweeners 2" and "The Expendables 3". @Van, when do you fly in, you will probably need a day to recover from the jet lag. It takes me a week to recover when I fly back from "The Land Of The Free".
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:22pm Van in DC:

@Sean, Monday the 8th for the week.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:28pm kat330:

@Sean: Locke was a DVD from our lending library here in Knob Knee. The unseen hone callers: I guessed Olivia Colman from her voice (we're currently watching her on "Rev") and there is also Ruth Wilson, whom we recently enjoyed in "Luther." Excellent acting. Would make a fine radio play, too.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:28pm kat330:

"hone" s.b. phone.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:30pm kat330:

There you go, Van! :)
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:31pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Kate, lovely
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:32pm common:

got my ear cleaned out! i can now hear! just thought i'd share that disgusting truth.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:32pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Drewo, Giants for the Pennant or do you think The Dodgers are too good!!
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:33pm Van in DC:

KATE!
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:34pm kat330:

@common: Ear Juice is the price to pay for excessive headphone use. And also the name I've given to Philo Gristle's recording label.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:34pm Van in DC:

I had stepped out for 5 minutes to get tea....boggle
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:34pm Van in DC:

Thank you Irene
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:36pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Yes, thank you, Irene,
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:39pm kat330:

Apparently Brian Blade doesn't cotton to Texarkana for that region. I get it since I prefer to call Kentuckiana here Indy-yucky.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:48pm drewo:

Hey Sean - Giants are struggling to hang in there. They are stretching a thin bench very far. Here's to hoping for a race in September.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:48pm Irene Trudel:

So sorry Van! All you chatting about Kate made me want to play something by her (at least you're one of the lucky ones getting to a show).
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:49pm common:

@kat330: hee hee! that's great...and gross! hey, i watched that scifi film you recommened. already forgot the title, but twas great!
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:51pm kat330:

@common: X from Outer Space or Monolith Monsters I suspect.

@Van: Yes, quite lucky, and we expect a full show & tell report upon your return.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:54pm Van in DC:

Actually, KaTe's first show is KT-minus 8 days!
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:55pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Don't give too much away, Van, but I think by the time I go on the 30th of next month all the Kate Facebook groups will be posting like mad
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 1:56pm Sean in Bristol UK:

I agree, Irene, a show broadcast live would be cool.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 2:04pm mariano:

Wow, beautiful, this Black Sea Hotel! Any connection to Las Rubias del Norte?
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 2:06pm Irene Trudel:

No, other than they're both based in Brooklyn.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 2:08pm common:

@kat330: yea! saw them both. good cheese!
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 2:17pm kat330:

Loving the dissonance in this Arc.
  Mon. 8/18/14 2:29pm Oldfan:

Nice mood, Irene. It has been pleasantly in the background at work and I slowly realized how much it was improving my afternoon.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 2:42pm Van in DC:

Sandy!
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 2:45pm Van in DC:

One of my own treasures...Sandy's "A Boxful of Treasures'
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 2:48pm Van in DC:

Wow, and now one with Jan Garbarek? Awesome
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 2:56pm Van in DC:

His album with David Torn was really something. I also had his Music for Films album
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 2:56pm Irene Trudel:

Glad I might've been able to improve your afternoon, Oldfan! I think it improved mine as well. Catch you all next week, with a live performance by Black Sea Hotel.
  Mon. 8/18/14 2:58pm 12539:

Thanks, Irene.
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 2:59pm kat330:

These are especially sad and hard days of late, so thanks for the uplift, Irene.
[BTW, anyone wanting .mp3 DL's (free) of my soundcloud original material might go there in coming weeks before certain tracks disappear. Otherwise they're big (still free) .wav files at Bandcamp]
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 2:59pm Van in DC:

Many many thanks Irene for a super enjoyable show!
Avatar Mon. 8/18/14 2:59pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Another terrific show, Irene, thank you.
