I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

Whoo, blue! Dig it and the dancing bats!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 12:01pm fred:

You know how some kids try to "save" a bird they find on the ground? As a kid I did that too, except it was a bat
These bats have wicked dance moves
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 12:01pm fred:

Good afternoon James and Mayuko
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:04pm Mayuko:

Good afternoon, james, fred, thank you for tuning in! These bats do look like having a party! fred, that sounds like something a future WFMU listener as a child would do, haha. Did you find it in a park?
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:10pm listener james from westwood:

How do, fred and Mayuko!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 12:11pm fred:

I found it in a shed next to a church in my grandparent's small countryside village. My grandmother wasn't too thrilled with my find
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:15pm Mayuko:

I don't know why some people hates bats. They're normal looking mammals. Besides Central park has a fun Bat walk you can do with a guide who carries some device that catches high frequency and so you can listen to their sound. Slugs are much scarier than them!

Let's do the Batusi!
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:20pm Mayuko:

Ah, I probably should have brought Prince with me. Hello, Ken!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 12:21pm fred:

I just love Steve Reich's music
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:22pm Mayuko:

Yes! This is just so, so good!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 12:23pm fred:

Someone somewhere has probably done a similar thing with the "please call Stella" archive. I wish I could hear that
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:25pm Mayuko:

Serious Moonlight Sonatas's Carol should play that track repeatedly for 3 hours since it says 'my name is Carol' (I heard so anyway...) I'd listen to it completely drunk.
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:28pm listener james from westwood:

w00t—Numan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 12:29pm Scraps deSelby:

hey h'lo
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:30pm Mayuko:

A few days ago I realized that it seemed I had never played Gary Numan, I don't know why! Makes no sense.
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:30pm Mayuko:

Hallo, Scraps, thank you for tuning in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 12:31pm fred:

Maybe someday I'll manage to wake up early enough to catch Carol"s whole show. I said that with Jonathan's show and never pulled it off though

Bat story: when I was in college ('80s) living in a group of shabby off-campus apartments called the Knox boxes a nieghbor, a Chinese girl, came over in an absulutely terrified state and told us there was a monster in her apartment. She wanted us (me, roomates) to gather ourselves with weapons and go over and do battle with it. When we got there we found a tiny bat bat crouched in a corner of the ceiling. We chased it gently out a window with a broom. Made me think a lot of people may know about bats without ever seeing one close
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 12:35pm Scraps:

When i hear the reich piece i always think of the airline erotica musical piece in All That Jazz
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 12:36pm fred:

That was Yapoos? Wow, this band covered a lot of ground
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:38pm Mayuko:

Hi paul b! That is funny. I thought bats are a symbol of fortune or charm or something like that in China, but doesn't mean people necessarily like them I suppose. I'd collect people to fight against slugs if they appear in my room, but bats really are not that scary looking thing at all!
  Sat. 2/4/17 12:40pm zmzz:

got tuned in just now. good you played Xenakis.
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:45pm Mayuko:

allo, zmzz! thanks for the comment yesterday! good for you making it to Nagasaki. I only went so long ago but I thought it was a beautiful place. very interesting history too. would love to go back there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 12:48pm fred:

I saw Ectoplasm Girls yesterday and really liked their set. Melodic noise if that makes sense. I hadn't heard about them before, and was wary because they had a video on, but it was dance footage so that turned out OK for me
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:49pm Doug Schulkind:

Good day, Mayuko and everyone!
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:50pm paul b:

Mayuko, I remember having the impression at the time she had never seen a bat before. She did not seem to know what it was. I admit I've never been that enamored of bats myself, despite their being fairly common in the town I grew up in. However the bats in your playlist header picture today look pretty cute (even as they imagine to themselves they look ferocious)
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:52pm Mayuko:

Ectoplasm Girls sounds familiar, think I heard it on WFMU. "Melodic Noise" does make perfect sense!
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 12:52pm Mayuko:

Hello, Doug!!!! Good day to you too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 1:01pm fred:

I'm getting this premium (as if there was any doubt about that)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 1:03pm Webhamster Henry:

I used to have bats fly in the house every once in a while. We'd have the top of the window open and they'd chase a fly in the house and couldn't figure out how to get out. I'd catch them with a fishnet and bring them outside.
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 1:03pm Doug Schulkind:

@fred
This year's crop of premiums look especially magnificent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 1:04pm fred:

'l'eau et les cicatrices" means "water and scars"
  Sat. 2/4/17 1:06pm zmzz:

right. did you know where's memorials and statues from all around the world surrounding the Fountain of Peace. interestingly St. Paul donated a memorial representing US as a sole city.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 1:08pm fred:

@Doug: I wish I could afford to get them all like I used to, but even though I'm extra motivated with Nachum leaving, it looks like a stretch
  Sat. 2/4/17 1:14pm zmzz:

gotta go. away for so long, i have lists of errands to tackle. catch you later.
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 1:15pm Mayuko:

fred, it comes with a poster. it's rather a poster that comes with music. hope you'll like it!
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 1:16pm Mayuko:

oh and thanks for the translation! re: water and scar
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 1:17pm Mayuko:

Thanks for tuning in Webhamster Henry! That sounds like they were causing a little too much trouble.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 1:22pm fred:

Jean Louis! I only saw them once, but I loved that show.
And I plan to see Alan Courtis on Monday
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 1:25pm Mayuko:

zmzz, I did not know about those donated statues! Will look them up! I did go to the park, but it was a tour and, I was behind the group because some local man hanging out in the park started talking to me about the atomic bomb and I nearly got lost. Had to run to catch up with the group, no time to really look around. Funny memory.
In any case, good luck with the errands and have a good weekend!
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 1:30pm Mayuko:

@fred It must be great to see Alan Courtis live playing tracks from this album. I really like this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 1:30pm fred:

also, "La Course du lievre a travers les champs" means something like "the hare's run across the fields"
Are the Japanese titles similar?
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 1:33pm Mayuko:

ha, that's totally different, in Japanese it's like "The wolf smells like an angel." Japanese people somehow love French. I don't think I've seen that many people naming their songs with Spanish. Meanwhile, Haruomi Hosono named his tracks with esperanto!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 1:34pm fred:

Alan Courtis isn't playing solo but as part of a super-group with the former owner of Bimbo Tower and a member of Sun Plexus. I'll probably hide from him because I tried and failed to put him in touch with researchers for one of his projects with autistic teens
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 1:38pm fred:

Esperanto? Is that why Sakamoto named an album this way? (I love that record)
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 1:42pm Mayuko:

What I seem to remember is that in that time period Ryuichi was trying to illustrate the feeling of "neo geo" = new geography of the world and music, so probably the language that (was supposed to) represent the borderless world was a good motif for that theme? can't remember what years those albums were offhand, but think they were closer to each other in the late 80's...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 1:43pm fred:

I think Koenjihyakkei must have heard Magma at some point
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 1:43pm Mayuko:

should play something from that album Esperanto sometime! I don't think I've had anything from it yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 1:45pm fred:

My copy of it says Esperanto is from 1985
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 1:50pm fred:

I used to see Kronos every year, but they now are beyond my price range
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 1:54pm Ike:

Uh oh, I'm late! Am I going to get penalized?
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 1:56pm Mayuko:

Yes, Ike, the penalty is to stand upside down for 1 minute. It's actually very hard (unless you do yoga regularly.) Thanks for tuning in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 1:58pm fred:

@Ike: Its not happening, you're being late is no big deal. We're all glad your here
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 2:01pm Mayuko:

This is my last song today - thank you all for listening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/4/17 2:02pm Ken From Hyde Park:

See you next week, Mayuko. Same bat-time; same bat-channel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 2:02pm fred:

Thanks Mayuko, I had the perfect setup today: ice cream and oreos
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 2:04pm listener james from westwood:

Many thanks, Mayuko!
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 2:09pm Mayuko:

Thanks again all, I'll go get me ice cream too! See you all next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/4/17 2:09pm Ike:

Ha ha ha ha I can't do it! Clearly my penalty is to finally go to yoga class like I've been saying I would.
Avatar Sat. 2/4/17 2:10pm Mayuko:

@Ike YES!!
  Sat. 2/4/17 5:02pm David:

I finally had a Saturday off
and completely forgot to
listen.. miss hearing your show
  Wed. 5/3/17 11:05am Suzuki Junzo:

Hi. Happen to find here, and thanks for playing my track from latest album!! And find you are talking about titles of the track and album. Let me talk about this. La Course du lievre a travers les champs. Taking its name from the 1972 René Clément film And Hope to Die (which was itself adapted from one of Suzuki’s favorite noir novels, David Goodis' Black Friday). This movie's script writer is Sebastian Japrisot named "la course..." and later he novelized this. Off course based on the story "Black Friday" by my fav David goodis. "Black Friday" s Jap Title is "The Wolf Smells like an angels" . Thanks!
  Wed. 5/3/17 11:11am Suzuki Junzo:

And Cicatrice, is the Big Chief's name of Indian tribe in the movie. Called "The Searchers" by John Ford.
Avatar Fri. 5/5/17 10:09pm Mayuko:

Whoa, thank YOU Junzo san! Will quote and explain this in my upcoming show!!
