Glad to be here, and glad to see y'all...annie, spamoni, duke and David in London.

Morning Jeffrey and tiny cosmonauts!

Hey friends! Listening from rainy Poconos Pa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 6:23am annie:

ok, i'm back on this tab again. good morning shrunken fans! i found some juicy news articles for dissemination to the teeming hordes. it's the end of week one at this pet-sit, ready to see the second week go just as smoothly. this place is wet, green, and lush with birds and wildlife, i love it. there's a nest of Eastern Peewee babies in the carport. the parents are as active and any barn swallow could be against the two outside cats. the fledglings are ready to jump to freedom; i wonder what it is in their genes which directs them to stay for now, have another mouthful of flying bug.. this is my happiness for now.

Sounds nice, annie. All I have is Pizza Rat.

@Zetti where in the Poconos? Cresco was where I spent my toddler years back when the resorts were still booming.

On birds: I first heard then saw a catbird yesterday. Love their gray color.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 6:42am annie:

catbirds are great!! i think the most fascinating of birds is the Pileated Woodpecker, followed by the Flicker family.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 6:42am Jeffrey Davison:

Welcome jkeigh, TDK60, and all fans of vinyl, chromium dioxide, shellac, and what have you, per se, and so on, forthwith.
  Sat. 6/23/18 6:42am David in London:

@TDK - Being a Brit, I've never seen a catbird. Just looked at a picture online. What an elegant little thing.
  Sat. 6/23/18 6:44am Marshland:

Morning all. Are you at the Leigh-on-Sea Folk Festival this weekend David?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 6:47am TDK60:

David in London. They do have sound similar to a cat.
  Sat. 6/23/18 6:48am David in London:

@Marshland - Sadly not. Rather stuck inside doing a sub-ed job this weekend. However, I have Wednesday off, and was planning to do the walk from Leigh back to Benfleet along the estuary path, which is a favourite of mine. Are you going?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 6:50am TDK60:

Heheh, the last few bands' names sound like hippies.
  Sat. 6/23/18 6:51am Marshland:

Yes, I'll be going for the late sets this evening (9-11pm) and all day tomorrow, should be great.
  Sat. 6/23/18 6:52am David in London:

@TDK - Wow, I just listened to a sound file. It does sound exactly like a kitten. That's glorious!
  Sat. 6/23/18 6:53am Luke:

The Bong Bummer Union from the Great state of Jeeferson
  Sat. 6/23/18 6:54am David in London:

@Marshland - Thomas Truax is playing on Sunday. He's always a hoot. Damn, wish I could go. Have a rollicking folky old time yourself, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 6:55am Zetti:

@testingwithfire Sorry for the late response, busy making breakfast. I live in Reeders, Pa near Tannersville, Stroudsburg.
  Sat. 6/23/18 6:57am adrian in mpls:

Morning all! A bit late to this - but saw my first catbird a couple of weeks ago - a happy find on a bike ride
  Sat. 6/23/18 6:57am Marshland:

Thanks, yes, have seen Thomas play lots of times, mostly at the Railway Hotel in Sarfend. Am looking forward to seeing You Are Wolf & Stick in the Wheel of course.
  Sat. 6/23/18 6:59am David in London:

@Marshland - Are you based in Southend, then? I'm there reasonably regularly for work (as we have a small office there). Any excuse for a Rossi's ice cream...
  Sat. 6/23/18 7:01am Marshland:

@David in London - I'm in Canvey Island, so not far away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:01am spamoni:

@Zetti hi neighbor I'm in Matamoras,Pa.
  Sat. 6/23/18 7:04am David in London:

@Marshland - Got it. Ah, the legend that is Canvey. I love that whole south Essex coast. It's such an amazing landscape.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/23/18 7:08am testingwithfire:

@Zetti @spamoni wayback machine: One of Frank "Vanilla Bean" Balesteri's radio gigs before WFMU was at WVPO, a little AM station out of East Stroudsburg. I was lucky enough to hear his show there when I was in high school. 1979-80, so lots of amazing new music for him to play.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:14am Jeffrey Davison:

Welcome Marshland, Luke, adrain in mpls, and various seers, prophets, soothsayers, long-in-the-tooth sayers, and all ya playaz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:15am Doobois:

Howdy, Spamoni. I visit your town around this time every year. As a New York resident, I can't say why... :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:17am spamoni:

@Doobois if you blink you'll pass right thru
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:17am Zetti:

@spamoni Hi!, Very nice up there!

@testingwithfire. I clearly remember the Vanilla Bean, I called into the station (wfmu) several times to speak with him, once almost getting him tossed off the air for a second time. Was that radio station part of East Stroudsburg University? ESU still broadcasts on FM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:21am spamoni:

@ testingwithfire those were my Jersey years and WNTI out on Centenary College
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:27am Zetti:

@spamoni It's sad what happened to WNTI.

Good morning, all :)

@annie it's been 4 weeks and Myah is officially in charge driving both me and Bella crazy and we love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:31am spamoni:

@ Zetti what happened?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:31am annie:

hehe @spamoni, i'm SO glad to hear that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:33am annie:

i was reading an article about mr prine and how his music is actually a benefit to those experincing depression symtpoms. Blues, the healer
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:33am TDK60:

It's Midsummer in parts of Europe right? People gather at Stonehenge or make bonfires in parts of France. St John the Baptist for some Christians.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:36am annie:

i'm very fascinated by the rituals of old and the honoring of all souls passed and currently active. (and, yes, i mant to spell "passed" that way.) :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:39am TDK60:

I think the Puritans in New England tried to stamp out any ancient/pagan celebrations so Amerikinz don't celebrate but I've heard various Native groups have similar rites.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:40am Zetti:

In 2015 the collage sold the station to NPR, not telling the DJs and other lifelong volunteers. They showed up to find the studio dark and doors locked. Could you imagine that happening to WFMU?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:42am annie:

those damn puritans...i i wish england had banished them to australia instead, well, if they hadn't i'd have had completely different life... oh well, i'm glad to be murkan. what station Zetti?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:43am annie:

aahh, i see, zetti.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:43am spamoni:

@Zetti WNTI is still on the air @91.9 i don't know the format but nothing compares to WFMU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:44am annie:

looks like talk schmalk
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:45am Zetti:

Yes, WNTI is still on the air but not the same.
  Sat. 6/23/18 7:46am David in London:

@ Annie - We've got plenty of puritans left in old England, so we didn't banish them all... But spend a solstice at Avebury (THE stone circle in England, forget Stonehenge) and thankfully the old ways are still very much alive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/23/18 7:49am testingwithfire:

@zetti I'm not sure about the station's ownership; I remember that Frank's was really the only listenable show on the station, so I doubt it was a college station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:50am spamoni:

@David in London I've been watching the Royal Ascot all week what a show they've put on
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 7:53am Zetti:

Be back shortly, out to collect the eggs and clean the coop.
  Sat. 6/23/18 7:58am David in London:

@spamoni - Yes, it's quite the event of the season, isn't it? I read somewhere this week that they are enforcing a strict sock rule on the gentlemen.

hey there wolfg...don't know too much alpine folk, but I'm sure I've heard some stuff over the years...
Avatar Sat. 6/23/18 8:29am wolfg:

is very unpopular in Alpine countires....is hard to find the real stuff, only a few people do that kind of music or listen to it
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 8:30am TDK60:

Wow, that Kristofferson tune is all the way back to his 1st LP-1970. Its opening tune, a funny one "Blame It On the Stones."

that's not so bad www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/23/18 8:36am annie:

if there's any of that alpine stuff on fmu, you're likely to find it on GTDS's show

The Flying Burrito Bros. I don't hear those old hippy country-rock bands so much anymore: Byrds, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Commander Cody, Poco, Gram Parsons, etc. Except here of course.
