The guitar opening is very familiar, to the point where I thought it was a different song; but I don't know Arlet. And of course, I forget the song that reminds me of. Yeah.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 9:10pm Scraps deSelby:

And h'lo Irene, h'lo people.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 9:20pm Irene Trudel:

'Alo to you too, Scraps! Guess us just the two of us here. Always like playing things that are familiar and not at the same time.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 9:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

N'yello! A little late to the party, but glad to be here.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 9:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I listen !
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 9:27pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Ken and Rev. Rabbit! Just fishing out there for listeners. I'm a little slow to post tonight myself.
  Tue. 5/17/16 9:28pm Whampa:

This song is really pretty Irene.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 9:29pm Alejandroool:

Irene, your show brought me out of a short nap in a very nice way, dozed off during phonograph and woke up here
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 9:36pm Scraps deSelby:

Your music-behind-dj (Jon Hassel) is my favorite track of its year
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 9:38pm Scraps deSelby:

er, Hassell

Can you play more John Hassell?
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:00pm Irene Trudel:

I might, Dave.
  Tue. 5/17/16 10:04pm miketp:

IRENE nice steven Wilson track. In the yard birds chirping n this. In Portland. Light out here.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:05pm coelacanth:

hi Irene and others
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:06pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Mike. Sounds nice out your way.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:06pm Irene Trudel:

Hi coelacanth!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Did William Berger come in early ? :)
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:13pm Cliff:

Thank you Irene, this is the perfect music for doing a spring cleaning and sage smudging of my apartment
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:16pm Irene Trudel:

Ha, Rev. Rabbit! Sometimes I like the heavy stuff. Glad you like what I'm playing, Cliff!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Robert Fripp 70 y.o. yesterday.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:20pm Van in DC:

Hi Irene and peoples. Just back from watching lots of sports, primarily the fantastic pitcher's duel between Nats & Mets. Much fun.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:20pm coelacanth:

bummer i missed Anna Von Hausswolff...happy i caught king crimson!
happy birthday Fripp.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:23pm Van in DC:

Mets won by the way.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:25pm coelacanth:

strawbs exist?! cool!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:28pm Irene Trudel:

Yes, The Strawbs are still around. Just saw them play a gig in Whippany, NJ this past Sunday. Sure made me smile! I posted a few pictures on my FB page.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:29pm Irene Trudel:

The Strawbs have a few more US gigs coming up www.strawbsweb.co.uk...
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:29pm Cliff:

If anyone wants to hear a ghost story, I found out about a month ago that the previous occupant of my apartment was a WWII veteran who died of cancer. I got some mail for him out of the blue and looked his name up online, and he's listed as still living at my address, at the age of 92....but I also found his obituary, he died in 2007.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:30pm Cliff:

That's why I'm doing the sage smudging.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I tend to mix up The Straubs with The Sherbs. The rock station in my college town would play "The Skill" from The Sherbs.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:33pm JakeGould:

Those sites that state someone’s age even if they are dead are just clickbait. They purposefully flaw the data to get you—or anyone—to fork over some $$$ to see the full/more accurate info. No need for smudge sticks.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:34pm coelacanth:

i heard this song on the radio when i was about 11. went to the lending library and they didn't have this album, but had "bursting at the seams", which i recorded onto an 8-track tape. i loved it...and i still have it!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:36pm coelacanth:

("this song" - i mean the Strawbs song.)
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:38pm Cliff:

Well there was a lot of other stuff going on for the past six years I was living here, that was just the icing on the cake. Just covering my bases before I move out next month.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:39pm Irene Trudel:

Wow, that's creepy, Cliff! Hope there are no lingering ghosts after this.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:39pm JakeGould:

Whatever floats your boat!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:40pm Cliff:

If nothing else, the scent of sage is very calming. :)
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:40pm Irene Trudel:

Yes, coelacanth! Bursting at the Seams was probably the first album I discovered by The Strawbs. Maybe I'll play one of those tracks too.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:41pm Van in DC:

One thing I hate about living in the NE: Apt controls when they switch on AC or heat for everyone. This SUCKS. Not that way down south. No heat no for about a week and I'm freezing. Frigging global warming.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:42pm coelacanth:

none of those dates are near me. Irene are you ukrainian? - not that a non-ukrainian can't see a show at the ukrainian center...just curious.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:42pm coelacanth:

Cliff, i'm glad you're smudging.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:44pm Irene Trudel:

If it's any consolation, Van, NYC hasn't been much better. A glimmer of heat last week, now it's back to chilly nights and no apt. heat.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:46pm JakeGould:

It’s like fall in NYC nowadays. Nobody knows how to dress!
  Tue. 5/17/16 10:47pm listening out there:

It's pleasant here on the left coast...for now :)
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:47pm Van in DC:

Watched the swimming pool people getting our pool ready for Memorial Day opening today, lol. They were wearing jackets of course.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:51pm Van in DC:

So Saturday morning I wake up with severe mouth ache. After 3 days I got to dentist...informed I have infection, swelling, and Yay! I get to have a root canal done. Next week...man this sucks. Still is very painful.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:53pm Scraps deSelby:

Love Robert Wyatt...
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:54pm Irene Trudel:

Nope, coelacanth! I'm a German-English mutt. That was just where the concert was held. Apparently there's a concert series in NJ called Splatter Concerts and they use that hall as a venue. www.kofc6100.org...
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:54pm Scraps deSelby:

Van: sucks, ouch
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:56pm JakeGould:

Awesome “Genesis” right here.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:57pm Irene Trudel:

Oww, I've been there, Van! Believe it or not, sucking on some cloves actually helps sooth the mouth.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:57pm Van in DC:

Yeah thanks Scraps. I'm in a run of really bad luck lately. Broken collarbone & 3 ribs, now this. Sigh.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:57pm Van in DC:

cloves... I'll have to hunt some down
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:57pm Cliff:

Hey Scraps, thanks for the tip about the last three Captain Beefheart records
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 10:59pm Van in DC:

On the plus side, I can now justify ice cream for every meal right now ha ha
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:00pm coelacanth:

-also echinacea numbs it a bit.
...Irene that looks like a very cool organisation.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:00pm Alejandroool:

I just had some dangerous dulce de leche haagen dazs
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:01pm Scraps deSelby:

Cliff: hey, thanks!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:02pm coelacanth:

Lovely music!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:02pm geezerette:

Guru Guru sounded a little acid surf-punk in places.
Digging sounds while working.

@Cliff: Yikes! Smudging is only prudent, and of course smells like New Mexico!

@Van:Sorry! Have Alleve or something on hand.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:03pm Tome:

lovely 2 hours Irene ! simply Marvelous !
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:04pm Cliff:

Often fantasize about moving to Albuquerque or Santa Fe.....don't know what I'd do there though. Maybe when I'm older
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:06pm Santos L. Halper:

I heartily endorse tonight's prog-fest. Thanks Irene!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:06pm coelacanth:

burning sage has a calming effect on me. not just the white sage from california either; higher elevations in colorado have a more floral-smelling, smaller leaf sage - 'does the same thing.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:09pm geezerette:

Same here. So damn beautiful.
But you'll be able to see a lot of Europe by train,etc. You'll have a dozen new places to possibly move to/fall in love with!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:11pm geezerette:

Coel, my favorite is Cleveland Sage. Intoxicating perfume and elegant purple or blue flowers.
  Tue. 5/17/16 11:12pm herb.nyc:

Power to da Strawba. Gnite.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:14pm coelacanth:

geezerette - interesting. i know there're like a thousand species of sage; i wonder what that is..?
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:14pm Cliff:

Yep, definitely planning on exploring Prague and lots of weekend train trips over the next year :)
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:17pm JakeGould:

Guess I’ll burn some sage. But who has the thyme? *ducks*
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:17pm Cliff:

Wocka wocka!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:19pm coelacanth:

tee hee
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:21pm Van in DC:

Thanks Irene. Will catch up later. Heavy drugs for pain knocking me out. Have good night all.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:24pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Huh....new version of iTunes is out. Yay?
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:26pm geezerette:

@Jake:Rosemary. Has the thyme. :D

Mighty Baby! What a treat
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:29pm Irene Trudel:

Ken, it's a trap... (bad Star Wars reference, I know.) I won't download a new version just before I go on air. Liable to totally mess things up for me. Anyone out there upgrade yet?
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:30pm Cliff:

Aaaaarrrreee yyyyoooouuuu going to Scarborough Fair
  Tue. 5/17/16 11:30pm KP:

I went out today, saw my shadow. That's it for six weeks.
  Tue. 5/17/16 11:32pm KP:

My new iPhone keeps up with internet tuner very well and I can nice surround thing going most times
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:33pm coelacanth:

i only use itunes to upload from cds, since i'm not given other options; but i've never "upgraded" since i bought this refurbished macbook over 5 years ago.
  Tue. 5/17/16 11:34pm listening out there:

ITunes 12.4 has mainly podcast related improvements. I've read it's supposed to do some of its many things faster. I don't see much that benefits my uses...
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:34pm Scraps deSelby:

Aaaahhhhhhhhhhh.... thank you, Irene.
  Tue. 5/17/16 11:35pm Andrew:

Dave R. is not the only Jon Hassell fan. Saw him in the '80's.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:37pm Irene Trudel:

Good to know, l.o.t. Sometimes "improvements" make things worse. My Macbook keeps popping up an alert asking me me to allow Calendar Agent keychain access.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:37pm Alejandroool:

I updated and the only thing I notice different so far is a slight green/blue gradient glow on the left-hand Library/Playlist column
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:39pm geezerette:

scraps you're so right about Jon Hassell. Wow!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:40pm coelacanth:

i'd like a nice green/blue glow but mplayer works much better for listening.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:40pm sinister dexter:

loving the show tonight Irene, thanks
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:41pm Alejandroool:

cc: the glow looks like a mistake...a strange gradient. hah I thought something was wrong with my display, but it's only in the itunes window.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:42pm Scraps deSelby:

geezerette: yay!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:42pm coelacanth:

Jon Hassell's extraordinary.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:43pm coelacanth:

(though my favorite Hassell, of what i've heard, is his collaboration with Eno.)
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:43pm Alejandroool:

I think it may actually be a display glitch in itunes, pretty odd. Must keep this John Hassell on my radar it seems..
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:46pm geezerette:

Gorgeous show Irene. Gotta click it!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:48pm coelacanth:

that is odd, A. but i have no need for it anyway. i'm hoping that by the time (in the near-future) this computer dies, i'm set up with linux on my other (windows vista) laptop. if not, i probably still wont buy an apple again.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:51pm coelacanth:

hah! i had hoped you'd play Marissa Nadler tonight; but i'm not one to suggest music on the comment board.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:51pm Alejandroool:

gotcha coela! evening everybody, thanks Irene!

  Tue. 5/17/16 11:56pm KP:

Sorry to be late again Irene but I enjoy every visit.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I use iTunes to edit mp3 files by adding the artwork, composer, year, etc. I stream WFMU with it occasionally. There are a ton of WFMU podcasts, but there are only 24 hours in a day! www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:57pm Irene Trudel:

No Problem, KP! Glad you can join in for whatever amount of time.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:58pm coelacanth:

Thanks Irene. Great program!

...Scraps, no - what's that?

as i bspeak to put my mind ltters wise. ... .. whith dear regards
  Tue. 5/17/16 11:59pm listening out there:

Oh. And the previous iTunes release was occasionally deleting music bought from the iTunes store. Not a good user experience...
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 11:59pm Scraps deSelby:

Hassell 80s album, ECM, great.
Avatar Wed. 5/18/16 12:00am coelacanth:

oh, that's right, Ken. i did also use it for podcasts once.
Avatar Wed. 5/18/16 12:01am Scraps deSelby:

I think produced by Eno and Lanois. I think.
Avatar Wed. 5/18/16 12:02am coelacanth:

i'll def check it out Scraps. Thanks!
...yes, lot, i heard the last issue had lots of problems.
Avatar Thu. 5/19/16 4:50am Sean in Bristol UK:

Wow, Irene, that was an epic show, the choice of music was 'out of the park'. So much great music, thank you.
