  Fri. 9/4/15 9:33am doca:

@Alex: it also reminds me of Chico Science, but it also represents some trends on Brazilian rap nowadays, of mixing Brazilian music with rapping

BTW, @Doug, this song is about people being nosey about the singer's life and asking how he manages to do his things and whether he was not supposed to be doing something else. Then it urges people to stick with what's proper to them

@doug you're the greatest. i also just noticed that there's a new post up at Monrakplengthai. i'm not at all sure that i can take this much happiness.

Pace yourself, hyde! I've grabbed but not yet listened to the latest Monrakplengthai offering.

Here it is, y'all:

@Doug Schulkind: With this stream's expanded schedule of freeform superstars, it's more like Give The Drummer Too Much! It's an embarrassment of musical riches!
Avatar    Fri. 9/4/15 11:34am hyde:

@Gaylord Fields what we really need Doug to do is expand the number of hours in the day so we have time to listen to all this stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/4/15 11:35am Jeff Golick:

I would sign up for that email, @hyde.

GTDR is also geographically diverse .. it's like telecommuting radio. It'd be great to add some physically resident Africans, Slavs, or South Asians on the stream!

GTDR = Radio Free Doug

With all due respect this is all well and good for us listeners but Doug needs a fuckin' decent job. Someone.

Ah, the Nina Simone requirement has been fulfilled. And with Brel, too.

This is the damnest record as it includes Everyones Gone to the Moon.

Never heard Nina like this before!

I want to hear Nina Simone sing Brel duets with Theo Bleckmann.

Yes, this is a Brel cover indeed!

@Brian in UK: Yes, on one hand, there's the idle rich; and, conversely, there's Doug. Yet sometimes I almost wish I didn't have a job, so I could listen to GTDR, Ichiban, and the broadcast signal on constant rotation.

Clint talks to the trees, and a chair made out of those trees.

Clint's got nothing on Dick Smothers.
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 11:44am Flash Strap:

I used to watch this flick with my dad. When this scene would start up, he'd always yell at the screen, "No Clint! Don't do it!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/4/15 11:44am Webhamster Henry:

@Gaylord That explains a LOT!

I'm actually thinking of writing something that builds my own WFMU out of carefully timed live shows, archives and favorited tunes to fill in the blank spots.

Oh-oh...last time I heard Clint doing this, it got stuck in my head for plenty long time.

I doubt it. Just some studio hire I'd bet.

Doug, I believe you wanted to be notified of typos--Armtstrong is a typo.

Tell me this record (Louis Armstrong singing Pharaoh Sanders) actually exists, and I'm not just hallucinating again.
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 11:47am Doug Schulkind:

I was pleased to make that connection a few years back!

THANK you!

Thanks Doug.

This is insane. I second Gregory's need for assurance
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 11:48am ndbob:

wow never knew Louis recorded this
Avatar    Fri. 9/4/15 11:49am hyde:

@Doug yeah, i imagine you're right. this Armstrong is amazing too, though. (this Pharaoh Sanders tune was a high school fave). Thanks for the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 11:49am Gaylord Fields:

My stars, this is perfect! I thought I knew about this song's existence, but this is a revelation!

His last-ever recording session in May 1970.

Wow, wow, wow. I can't believe I never knew any of this

I'm weepin' at the beauty of it
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 11:53am Doug Schulkind:

I heard this song on the radio maybe 35 years ago. It was on Washington's then-great WPFW. I nearly drove off the road. I missed the DJ back announcing it, so I wasn't 100% sure I heard what I thought I heard: Louis Armstrong singing with Leon Thomas. I spent years getting "you are a fool" looks from clerks in record store jazz departments when I asked about it. When I finally found it, it exceeded the engorged expectations I had for it. Amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 11:53am coelacanth:

oh my that Louis Armstrong track was EXTRAORDINARY!!
  Fri. 9/4/15 11:53am Mr C:

Billy Stewart was a complete original..Chess band/arrangers were perfect complements...I saw him performm in Phila shortly before his horrible accident in NC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 11:54am coelacanth:

(okay- everyone's said that already.)
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 11:54am Flash Strap:

Thanks for playing that Doug
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 11:55am Doug Schulkind:

On this same Louis Armstrong recording, he covers "Everybody's Talkin'," "We Shall Overcome," "His Father Wore Long Hair," "This Black Cat Has 9 Lives," "Give Peace a Chance."

And speaking of weeping, get out your hankies for our next and final selection...
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 11:56am Doug Schulkind:

Oh wow, Mr C. I simply adore Mr. Stewart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/4/15 11:56am Alex In Illinois:

There is a recording that is allegedly of Louis Armstrong setting a tempo by saying: "Not too slow, not too fast, just kind of half-assed". It is on an old Kermit Schaefer Bloopers record. Apparently, that actually did NOT happen, but was actually a hoax with someone imitating Louis Armstrong.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 11:57am Gaylord Fields:

When I tune in to shows like Doug's, I listen intently, take note of things — and brazenly steal!

Nina Simone should have covered this .. but she did do:

(And let's raise another glass to Elaine Stritch! Even though she was off the sauce in her later years, and needed to be.)
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 12:02pm Doug Schulkind:

And he always hated this song. Thought it took the easy way out, ending Company on a too-positive note.

  Fri. 9/4/15 12:02pm Listener Gregory:

Hard to believe this guy (Jones) starred in the Disney movies I saw in childhood, like That Darn Cat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/4/15 12:02pm Alex In Illinois:

Anyone else listening on headphones? The use of stereo to give the illusion of location is very well done. Great recording engineer.

Nothing wrong with learning from Bernstein.

I thought that was Stritch, and in confirming it I learned Anthony Perkins started rehearsing for the Jones lead but left to direct something.

thank you Mr. drummer. Have a great weekend!

I'm still glad they replaced "Happily Ever After" with "Being Alive".
