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.

Great to hear you again, Mayuko!

Hey Jesse! Saw that you moved to a new studio on Daniel's playlist last night (after the show.) I just got one too! Would be great if we can do studio visits each other someday!

@Webhamster Henry: How come your volume knob is off and only goes to ten? I've always wondered

Great to have you here David! Thanks for tuning in, james, and Henry! Happy September to you too, rbrt!

Hi, Mayuko. I hope you had a pleasant week off. Happy to be here today.
Avatar Sat. 9/2/17 12:19pm Mayuko:

Hola, Ken, thank you for tuning in! My week off was spent on carrying a bunch of boxes. Just moved to a new place. So happy to be back on the radio!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 9/2/17 12:26pm fred:

I hope the new place is great. Moving is very tough for people who have a huge record collection (especially vinyl). I didn't even get asked when friends moved a few weeks ago, because I'm such a weakling (he runs a label)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/2/17 12:28pm Webhamster Henry:

@fred This is an old picture! I haven't visited it in a long time. Maybe visitors to the studio can take some new photos of it so I can see how it's doing.

If you click on my WFMU Friendship Society Profile and look at the Mamalama Facebook feed, you can see the mine my band was playing in last week at this time.

@Webhamster Henry: Looks cool. The acoustics must have been challenging in there

@webmaster henry that's wild!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 9/2/17 12:44pm fred:

This Kobayashi Utena Group track is pretty nice. It would probably sound great in that mine

@fred yeah, I didn't know her until we got this cover album at the station, now I'm curious to hear more her stuff.

Good afternoon, coelacanth∅! Thanks for tuning in!

Attention, class.

Packing and moving boxes isn't anyone's idea of fun! We've all been there, we know what a drag it is...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/2/17 12:52pm Webhamster Henry:

The acoustics are great in there! no flat reflecting surfaces (outside of the underground pond) means really smooth and long reverb! You can be really quiet in there.

Billie Holiday's voice is timeless
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/2/17 1:02pm listener james from westwood:

I went nearly 4 decades not even knowing that song existed. It wasn't taught to white-majority classes or discussed in college. Can only imagine how many areas of the country where that's still true.
  Sat. 9/2/17 1:07pm Rickwaukee:

That was some "Lament" - sounded like something you'd hear in a Terrence Malick film
Avatar Sat. 9/2/17 1:07pm Mayuko:

haha, welcome Rickwaukee! If I ever open up a record store, I'll make a "dreams-core" section.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 9/2/17 1:08pm fred:

I think the writer of Strange Fruit was Jewish, so that segue from Avrum Berkovitsh to Skip James is appropriate in this set
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/2/17 1:10pm coelacanth∅:

Gary played strange fruit sung by a japanese artist a few weeks ago that is quite good

Hi Mayuu, back from KANAZAWA called littel kyoto was OK, prefer Kyoto though. BUt if you visiting KANAZAWA don't miss http://www.kanazawa-museum.jp/chikuonki/ I wonder if Mac's already visited.

I strongly approve of this set's diversity!

Oh man, Brundibár. I'm sure you'll tell your listeners all about this opera!

Here, doing dishes.
Avatar Sat. 9/2/17 1:18pm Mayuko:

james, that's very interesting! At least the massacre of Koreans in 1923 was on my history textbook at school - though not much into the details. Only learned how really cruel and insane it was as an adult.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/2/17 1:19pm David D:

And I am strongly moved by it's plumbing the depths of the diversity of human suffering - extremely moving.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/2/17 1:25pm listener james from westwood:

Major milestones in the black experience in America were covered in my public-school classes from '76 through '83 —slave trade, then the Civil War, then the Reconstruction, then blip forward to Dr. King—but never the lasting effects on both white and black Americans, other major figures in black culture, politics, or civil rights, or the enduring institutional racism in ways like redlining, effects on neighborhoods, differences in opportunity, etc. Kids left that school in 6th grade thinking all was well.

Driving, a moment to say hi, LOVED that last set, just sayin...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/2/17 1:25pm Webhamster Henry:

The original of Brundibár is in Czech. I saw an English version about 30 years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 9/2/17 1:27pm David D:

No, it is good to play it in a different language. By good I mean very hard to take actually - the contrast between the blithe sounding Italian children and the history of the piece, it really brings it home. Sorry if I've been typing gibberish here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 9/2/17 1:27pm doctorjazz:

Moment of Daddy pride here, my younger daughter knew Strange Fruit when it came on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 9/2/17 1:28pm fred:

Power erasing history is familiar to me. For a long time, decolonization was taboo over here, especially when it comes to Algeria. Talking about it was probably illegal at some point
  Sat. 9/2/17 1:32pm Dean:

Power is a ass.

The most we heard (and sang) in my suburban white publisc school in the late 70s was what were called Negro spirituals in music class.

Hello, doctorjazz! That IS something you can really be proud of! I wonder how/where she heard the song the first time?

I'm glad you approved of the Italian ver, David D! I thought it sounded good to me.

@geezerette: sorry if I mislead you, "When you're a star" turned out to be more about Cosby than Trump. But I guess the disgust level is comparable

Suitable Kevin Ayers track for these times!

Hola, Dean! geezerette, good afternoon!
Avatar Sat. 9/2/17 1:53pm Mayuko:

Wow, you saw the play Henry! I hope to watch it sometime soon. I only learned about it because I read that it was something Maurice Sendak would listen to pretty intensely.
  Sat. 9/2/17 1:58pm Rickwaukee:

reminds me of "I'm A Fool To Want You" and Cure's "Love SOng"

That's true, it did sound like I'm A Fool To Want You!
Avatar Sat. 9/2/17 2:00pm Mayuko:

Ike! Thanks!
Avatar Sat. 9/2/17 2:01pm geezerette:

Fred, thanks for clarification! Cosby's a tragedy and as for the other guy, it's the damage he's doing to the planet and our global future I'm horrified by. On a physical level he's just another human being with a tendency to corpulence. It's his mind that's repulsive.

Congratulations on new studio.

In my imagination, "Lost" is a movie soundtrack for a scene where the heroes are flying over a barren landscape, looking for their advisory,
