"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.)

Good morning all

Good day to you all!
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:03am Cmurtha:

Morning everyone, you know a few months ago I had a terrible fever, and passed out while working, woke up to this song, and even though I had heard it many times before, I thought I had died for a spell, and then fell back asleep.
  Fri. 5/31/19 9:06am Curious Tom:

This would be a horrible thing to listen to while feverish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:07am adampsyche:

friday mornings will not be the same when the summer schedule goes into effect
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:10am Cmurtha:

At least he's still on! Though his move will confirm this stupid thing I constantly do where I think Olivia and Fabio are not on the same day, and now the schedule aligns to that as opposed to what it has been all year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:10am steveo:

yep, not the same. i also wonder if Mr. Rolnick has a piece entitled "Eat Lunch"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:10am ben abs:

Sad that this is the last Friday slot, for now. - Always the best way to end the week
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:11am adampsyche:

i mean, at least i have the vinyl of this on the way :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:12am Ken From Hyde Park:

Folks on the west U.S. coast are going to have to get up at 6 on Fridays now. No more sleeping in until 9.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:12am Ken From Hyde Park:

Er ... switch that. They can sleep late.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:13am steveo:

we should just force them to stay up 24-7, ken
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:13am melinda:

this is appropriate for my soggy and feeble state of mind and body right now
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:14am adampsyche:

hell yeah
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:14am steveo:

oh good a nice rut for mind to sit in
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:14am steveo:

(that was in earnest)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:15am adampsyche:

go extra for us this friday john, mess us all up, i'm in for it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:16am ben abs:

totally onboard with this
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:17am Ken From Hyde Park:

I need this or other earworm to replace "Panama" that I've had for the last hour.
  Fri. 5/31/19 9:21am Chi Bill:

Phillip Glass on meth?
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:21am Alfredo Garcia:

how/where was this dennis duck track released?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:23am melinda:

@Ken hoo boy that's a bad earworm
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:24am steveo:

ease the seat back
Avatar Fri. 5/31/19 9:25am John Allen:

my error, the dennis duck came out in 2006/ it's been sitting in my record bag for 5 years
Avatar Fri. 5/31/19 9:25am Rev. Turnip Druid:

600% here for the phillip glass on meth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:28am steveo:

does anyone think clay will chat & sing with olivia for 15 minutes like he does with matt?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:30am ben abs:

Excited for Kellen303 to have a regular slot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:30am Dave in Vermont:

as long as he does during his own show....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:32am steveo:

schedules only happen when it's raining
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:45am Mister Dobalina:

This sounds extra good with headphones on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:47am ben abs:

Is the schedule change for this show looking to be a regular thing, or just for the next cycle?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 9:54am zopa:

@steveo: JA only loves you when he's DJing?
Avatar Fri. 5/31/19 9:56am βrian:

This playlist looks like candy corn, but the music is making my ears happy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:01am adampsyche:

to be fair, i missed marty mcsorely on friday mornings, but the switch to his show on saturday nights and john on friday mornings was a pleasant surprise. we learn to adjust.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:04am steveo:

djs they will come and they will go
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:06am zopa:

when the staysh switches your show, you'll know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:06am Linda Lee:

sometimes i see the fmu program like a large ballroom, with changing dancers at the center. some circle the floor, some leave, some enter. all are exceptional dancers.
  Fri. 5/31/19 10:07am karen eliot:

good morning! needy students almost gone ,headphones, & wfmu. might be a flannel summer here. high 65. will miss you. olivia is great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:07am Linda Lee:

maybe it's more like karaoke though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:08am The Oscar:

Thanks all for the Philip Glass jokes earlier-- you reminded me to order tickets for this! fac.umass.edu...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:08am steveo:

nothing lasts forever but i'm glad john will still be around
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:09am The Oscar:

Also is he saying "Dental floss?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:10am Ken From Hyde Park:

At first, Marty on Saturday night seemed off, unusual somehow. But now, it feels like a great fit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:10am steveo:

anybody going to "Reich Richter Pärt" at "The Shed"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:11am steveo:

Christian what's-it instead of WPLJ will always disappoint.
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:14am TomDash:

These new Hamish releases/re-mixes are pretty surprising...in a good way
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:14am Linda Lee:

love the sounds, John! you're getting me off my duff to work!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:17am Mister Dobalina:

Oh gosh, just went down a Klaus Nomi rabbit hole for the last 10 mins. Freakin' great!
Avatar Fri. 5/31/19 10:19am John Allen:

great to hear Linda. i'll be gearing towards maximum productivity on the noon-3 show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:21am Linda Lee:

good! i'll be fully awake for it! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:22am Barney Grubbs:

@steveo: we went a month or so ago--it was nice (though the 12-yr old in attendance liked the Pärt part & lost patience with the Reich piece)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:23am Linda Lee:

nothing like a job you make up as you go! sonic motivation is key. i'd really rather go look at bees.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:23am Linda Lee:

thanks again. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:28am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:34am steveo:

@barney cool, thanks; oh, I just read the review in the new yorker this week.. but yeah it's closing this weekend; i'm skeptical about hudson yards in general so not sure if i'll make the effort....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:38am Linda Lee:

for sure. always love a Bee picture!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:40am Barney Grubbs:

@stevo the space was nice and the performers were great (though Doug Perkins was missing on vibes the day we went), and you can avoid most of the rest Hudson yards if you approach from the south (you could sneak up the high line if it isn't wall-to-wall people).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:48am sphere:

hullo. will we hear "wake up" in the new slot? the world is shivering with anticipation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:50am steveo:

yeah, i'm sure it's lovely, it just skeeves the anti-capitalist part of my heart, or something
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:50am TomDash:

awww...shedding a tear for this one. Gonna miss ya in the morning John - good luck on the move - maybe they'll let ya spin this one in the afternoon?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:51am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Every FMU-J is a World - is whut I says...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:51am steveo:

@sphere listen to the first set break in the archive for the answer
  Fri. 5/31/19 10:52am karen eliot:

i want to karaoke this song :)

Such a good show!!
Tukitah tuk...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:52am steveo:

  Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:54am TomDash:

  Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 10:55am TomDash:

Greatest Hits! Is the Stallion in our future?
  Fri. 5/31/19 10:55am vixo:

I predict an hour-long Zoogz Rift tribute to close the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 11:03am Linda Lee:

every dj is a world, for sure & we're lucky to have our windows in!

Nicely put, Philippe B.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 11:12am Phillippe Bastille:

I will be extremely conflicted Thursday between JA and Julie on the drummer stream. Why did you make me have to choose, Stashe Ken?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 11:12am ben abs:

just tipp-exed (PST) on my JA In The AM tshirt to keep it relevant

That picture-disc is indeed a thing of savage beauty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 11:22am Mister Dobalina:

Bryce to me seems like a real early bird'r type...no? Not a topper or sleep-in kinda person.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 11:30am steveo:

he also has excellent penmanship
Avatar Fri. 5/31/19 11:31am βrian:

But he's really not very punctual.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 11:32am Mister Dobalina:

Love that fact, excellent cursive and/or calligraphy is really the bee's knees ! Not punctual?!?! Well at least he never miscues a record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 11:34am steveo:

see look, not bad at all www.instagram.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 11:47am Booz:

I regularly listen both to JA and the Ravioli thing, so should I anticipate a summer of slot-lag and circadian twitching?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 11:49am Booz:

That Rip Hayman disc is pre-tagged on Roon as "JAZZ"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 12:00pm ben abs:

thanks JA - hope to catch you in the new slot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/31/19 12:00pm steveo:

another great show in the record books. looking forward to the new slot. I tried to explain JAZZ to my spouse, but I'm not sure she appreciated it.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/19 12:03pm White Michael:
