Rob, we WFMUers can handle any "inaccessible" show thrown at us. // Anyone watching the winter Olympics?
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 6:31pm Rob W:

I know, you're a hardy bunch. I enjoyed the Olympic mixed doubles curling this afternoon as I was prepping my show, very inspirational!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 6:34pm Bas NL:

This WFMUer doesn't have a TV..
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 6:37pm Harry Skyr:

some north korean songs?
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 6:38pm Andrew S:

Whats on the charts in N. Korea these days anyway?
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 6:39pm Harry Skyr:

I don't know but something that Kim Jong-un likes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 6:41pm Layet Johnson:

This is a great song!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 6:41pm TDK60:

Good for you, Bas! Me neither but a roommate does. I watched some of the skating. I should check out the curling!
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 6:44pm Rob W:

There is a North Korean radio aircheck comp on Sublime Frequencies I think but I may or may not get to it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 6:47pm Doobois:

The top 10 of the North Korea music chart is, in order, volumes one through 10 of "Now That's What Kim Jong-Un Calls Music!"

I wish we could be happy as the people in NK
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 6:53pm Andrew S:

I dont find this inaccessible at all, it's as interesting as every other week. If you had of gone all k-pop on us then yes it would be for me but I knew that wasnt going to happen :)

Wikipedia's entry on trad Korean instruments shows many.
  Sat. 2/10/18 7:12pm Ike:

This show is a heck of a lot better than anything the International Org of Corruption is slapping together w/doped-up athletes, IMHO.
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 7:17pm Rob W:

Oh bu the Curling players are clean, I promise you that Ike, no stone has been left unturned! Or at least, unswept...
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 7:18pm Andrew S:

curling is all about the touch, it's very difficult, you dont want to be roided up. You barely let the stone float out of your hand or else it will go nearly through the wall
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 7:21pm katie:

curlers are also the only athletes that regularly discuss drinking beer. For what that's worth.
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 7:22pm Andrew S:

there was a canadian band i used to go se a lot clled the dik van dykes who had a very funny song called curling
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 7:23pm Andrew S:

there's a song about everything :)
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 7:28pm Harry Skyr:

Let's hope that Kim Jong-un will deliver us from evil.
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 7:32pm Andrew S:

The Olympics always have the potential to bring people together amidst the insanity
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 7:33pm TDK60:

Possibly this Rob W. show and the curlers in Korea will inch us toward world peace more than the bureaucrats on high. Maybe.
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 7:33pm glenn:

dik van dykes. from the hammer.
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 7:34pm Andrew S:

from the hammer yep :) spent a lot of time in POttawa in the 80s, i think they flopped here for a bit because they played all the time in the mid maybe late 80s
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 7:35pm Andrew S:

fun as hell live, i think they had another breakoff band after called i love my shih-tsu or something like that, but that nobody likes album is great canadiana

Do they ever perform in NYC by chance Rob?
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 8:16pm Andrew S:

It has inspired me to watch the olympics, which should be getting underway for the day. Seems kinda weird that Korea gets the winter olympics 2 out of the last 6 or 7 times though do they have some wicked mountains or is it just politics?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 8:16pm Layet Johnson:

Thanks! Seeing Lee Go Woon and Lee JinSeol live would be insane...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 8:17pm Layet Johnson:

Good question, Andrew. Googling Korean topo maps now
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 8:19pm Andrew S:

there are a lot of countries with great winter olympic conditions. 2 out of 7 doesn't seem like spreading it oput. Though as someone who spent half his life in Montreal the Olympics can be a long term money pit
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 8:20pm Layet Johnson:

That seems to be the trend for Olympic spending... Would be interesting to see a minimal/sustainable Olympic design contest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 8:25pm TDK60:

I think the Korean Peninsula is mainly mountainous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 8:29pm Layet Johnson:

Do they blow in fake snow for winter olympics ever?
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 8:30pm Andrew S:

I thonk they did in vancouver
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 8:31pm Andrew S:

cant swear to it but usually the machines are running even on the largest hills if there isnt adequate snow
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 8:32pm Layet Johnson:

There should be public displays about climate change at the winter olympics if there aren't already.

I was at the vancouver olympics. well, more accurately i was in vancouver when they were on, i didnt go to any events but it wass pretty warm
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 8:37pm Layet Johnson:

Curling is cool. Ski slopes probably cause tons of erosion. Basketball is best. Minimal footprint.

Heya Rob and listeners.

I lived in Korea in 79-80. Interesting country ...
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 8:41pm Andrew S:

I have a newfound love for basketball. Not much of a sports fan except for baseball but my brother took me to a Toronto Raptors game and I got hooked, its a beautiful game. Im supposed to love hockey I guess but id rather watch paint dry
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 8:43pm Rob W:

Hi Carmichael - didn't know you'd lived in Korea!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 8:44pm Layet Johnson:

That's funny. I'm a basketball fan primarily, but I want to my first hockey game since I was a kid last night, and it was so much fun. Yale Quinnipiac, big Rivalry.

Thsnks for a fine show, helped while home sick with cold!
Avatar Sat. 2/10/18 8:49pm Andrew S:

I sold a record today to a guy in Norway and he wished me luck to Alex Johnson in the olympics and i was embarrassed because i didnt know who that was.
  Sat. 2/10/18 8:51pm Carmichael:

Yes Rob, really enjoyed it. Great food, great culture. It was way before K pop, though ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 8:52pm Layet Johnson:

Oh yeah, Alex Johnson, he throws the best snow balls.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/10/18 8:52pm Layet Johnson:
