welcome back to the 'waves, Kurt!
  Fri. 5/27/16 12:03pm SeanG:

you are missed!
Avatar Fri. 5/27/16 12:04pm Richard Gruesome:

I always think that for classical works, the "artist" in the playlists should be the composer rather than the performer, but admittedly I spend too much time thinking about these kind of things.
Avatar Fri. 5/27/16 12:04pm Kurt Gottschalk:

hi everyone! thanks seang. you just think you miss me cuz you forgot what i play.
Avatar Fri. 5/27/16 12:05pm Kurt Gottschalk:

richard, most djs do it that way. it feels weird to me, tho. i think of it as the 'performer' column since, for example, we wouldn't list burt bacharach in place of dionne warwick.
Avatar Fri. 5/27/16 12:05pm βrian:

And I tend to think photographic credits should go to the subject first, and then the photographer.

Whoa, someone let Bryce out! Heya Koit and minotaurs.
Avatar Fri. 5/27/16 12:07pm Cecile:

Richard, that's traditionally how it's done. But I guess it doesn't matter if everything gets in there and spelled right.

bryce isn't in today. i'm humbled to be sitting in for him.
Avatar Fri. 5/27/16 12:09pm Cliff:

I'm always confused during Bryce's show, even when it's not his show
Avatar Fri. 5/27/16 12:09pm Richard Gruesome:

A fair point, but I feel that it is different for classical works, since we all agree that classical performers are nothing more than mindless automatons.
Avatar Fri. 5/27/16 12:09pm βrian:

Shouldn't we credit the pipes?

A ha! Kurt! The first 10 minutes of your show will lead to an inspiring bike ride to work. Thanks!
Avatar Fri. 5/27/16 12:11pm Kurt Gottschalk:

fair point, brian. it's a 1728 cahman organ at leugsta bruk in sweden.

Is this from the Big Box of Bach, or a Smaller Box of Bach?
Avatar Fri. 5/27/16 12:12pm βrian:

My x *hated* Bach as background music. If Bach were playing, everyone was supposed to sit their butts down and LISTEN.

jeff, big box. brian, your x was right.

"C moll" Is that C-Flat?
Avatar Fri. 5/27/16 12:54pm Mark Helsten:

Hi Kurt! Nice to catch you again, even though I have to take off in 45 minutes or so...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/27/16 12:55pm Scraps deSelby:

I have to rearrange the [aphasia] on my mp3s of classical works, because 92.4% have performers listed where I would list composers (because when I buy classical works, almost always I buy the composer, with the performer very much second. Unless it's a classical work that I have several versions (Villa Lobos' 5th Bachianas Brasileiras for instance, where I list the composer and Victoria de los Angeles also [for instance]).

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/27/16 1:03pm Scraps deSelby:

I could have used as an example The People United Will Never Be Defeated. I have four? five? of that, and I will buy every one that I see
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/27/16 1:08pm Scraps deSelby:

Lots of people buy classical differently than I, of course. I can see that for many many albums that list Yo Yo Ma in 72 point type and the composers on the back
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/27/16 1:09pm Scraps deSelby:

(and not meaning any disrespect to those people, either)
Avatar Fri. 5/27/16 1:09pm Kurt Gottschalk:

composers are just copywriters
