"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

I was having issues with the popup player earlier this week, Cmurtha. I tried another browser and then it sort of righted itself yesterday.

Works OK on my laptop with Win10 and Firefox. At first, the "Play" oval just spun, but music started when I refreshed the window. Also works OK on my Android phone with Chrome browser.

the Panasonic SC-ALL05 is a great way to listen to FMU online - very good sound quality with nice bass

@Cmurtha are you using any sort of adblockers? I had to disable mine with the new pop up player where I didn't have to before

Howdy from Yerevan. Been one hell of a busy day, so I'm rather late to the comments board. Great job you're doing JA, and hello FMU friends, old one and the other listeners. It's my friend's son's 1st birthday today, so I'm gonna get his some type of musical instrument he can't destroy. I already goit him a Hohner recorder which he's taken to. ))

Favorite pop up story: Hearty White's "How Trees Work." I like the part where you get to the last page and a bunch of cut out letter "A"s fall out.

My copy of chrome is automatically blocking the player from running unless I specifically tell it to load unauthenticated scripts. Something is wrong with their HTTPS certification
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/5/19 9:34am Cmurtha:

Thanks for info guys. I am doing windows 10 firefox, my ad blocker is off, I've done some ip/dps stuff to really 100% be sure , but since wed the pop up just is stuck in "connecting" forever, I have no problems streaming though. I can see if it runs in another browser/hope it will fix itself (As it has done before).
  Fri. 4/5/19 9:35am Morphe':

Not exactly so but, at the start of "Hammers," thought of silent movies with SF's ClubFoot Orchestra..

My favorite JC pop up restaurant Taste of Poland lost their store front recently. They used to be at the Legal Grounds cafe on Grand St on Weds-Friday evenings. But it seems it's not Legal Grounds anymore, new name on the awning.

Oh, and I just found out on their website that Taste of Poland are still doing deliveries until they find a new store front. Yay!

@Robert it is Rosa-Ly! Their hours are pretty terrible but I guess they mostly do wholesale. You can eat in or get refrigerated stuff to go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/5/19 9:54am Ike:

Sharon Van Etten has a small role in several episodes of the amusingly batshit-crazy Netflix series The OA. I prefer my parallel universes a little less California new-agey, but what a cast. Irene Jacob shows up too.

I second that. VLC is good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/5/19 10:16am Doug in JC:

There are two typos in the popup source code that are serving HTTP instead of HTTPS content. Your security settings are probably blocking it from coming through. There should be a tiny shield icon in the address bar in Firefox and Chrome. If you click on it you can tell it to ignore the problem and it will start working

Hey Zpulpa, there's a chance (a very minute chance at this point) that I may head up on the 14th to the X-Ray thing. If you are still in the area, are you up for shotgun?

Is there a cool "jaaaazz" like way to say "dub"? Asking for a friend.

@tim I had to pop over to TuneIn to get a good stream. Working fine, though I think its a few seconds behind.

@zpulpa Sounds like you have some fun lined up! I'll likely still be in the middle of moving or putting the finishing touches on this place to sell, but if I'm free I'm going to try to head up and put some faces to the voices and commenters. A longshot at this point.

It is now named after McGinn or it is where he drank? He was officially banned on the BBC for years - they thought he was Soviet not just a Good Damn anti- Soviet Socialist!!!! Find his Indonesian style candle lit puppet show video - stupendous... I'll look now
