Discovered this show quite by accident the other day. Lovely idea for a show. Introduced me to Yma Sumac in her glory.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10am Jan Turkenburg:

Welcome MHLee!
  10:16am zzmz:

hello, snow storm again!
  10:17am Listener Robert:

Oof! Considering how "derp" has come to be used in recent years, and the pre-existing meanings of "ass", "Assenderp" now is a name ready-made to be made fun of in English.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17am Jan Turkenburg:

Yes, Yma Sumac was unique! I will certainly play more recordings of her in the future.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18am Jan Turkenburg:

Hi zzmz! Hi Listener Robert!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am Jan Turkenburg:

I wasn't aware of that Robert. Derp = dorp, the Dutch word for village.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21am Lizardner Dave !:

I went to New Dorp High School in Staten Island. We have a few Dutch names around here, the Arthur Kill, the Kill Van Kull, Todt Hill to name three. Oh, good morning all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22am Jan Turkenburg:

and I just looked up: Assen was an old dialect word for ash tree
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22am Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Dave!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22am Lizardner Dave !:

When people asked what my high school name (and the name of the surrounding neighborhood) meant I said "New Town, pretty boring eh?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23am Jan Turkenburg:

Arthur Kill, the Kill Van Kull, Todt Hill, don't sound Dutch to me...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24am Lizardner Dave !:

I was told "Kill" = body of water in Dutch and "todt" was "death" in school, is that not true? Maybe it just was in 1600s Dutch?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25am Lizardner Dave !:

Ah, a quick google says "todt" is actually German. Which is weird because I don't think we had many German settlers here in the 1600s..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25am Jan Turkenburg:

That's German
  10:26am Listener Robert:

A "kill" is more specifically a FLOW of water. Now I live near the Paulinskill.
Avatar 10:27am Martinibomb:

Hello Folx!
  10:27am johnk77:

great show selecter
we live near the bronx kill
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27am Lizardner Dave !:

Yep! Wikipedia says "kill" is from "kille" in Middle Dutch. "A kill is a body of water, most commonly a creek, but also a tidal inlet, river, strait, or arm of the sea. The term is derived from the Middle Dutch kille (kil in modern Dutch), meaning "riverbed" or "water channel". It is found in areas of Dutch influence in the Netherlands' former North American colony of New Netherland, primarily the Hudson and Delaware Valleys."
Avatar 10:28am Martinibomb:

My last name begins with Kil
  10:29am Listener Robert:

That's interesting, Lizardner. Maybe "kill" is related to "keel" in the navigation sense.

In the NY-NJ area the geographic names are often some mixture of Dutch and the local Indian dialect.
Avatar 10:31am chresti:

What about Dork Town, is there a Dork Town?
Avatar 10:34am MHLee:

This the most earnest I've ever heard George
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35am Jan Turkenburg:

Well in Middle Dutch Dorc/dork could mean sediment...
  10:37am Listener Robert:

Wiktionary traces "keel" in the nautical sense to a Proto-Indo-European root meaning "vessel". The Middle Dutch "kille" it traces to something that seems unrelated.
Avatar 10:37am chresti:

Ask, and you get an answer on wfmu!
  10:41am Listener Robert:

Wow, Wiktionary also relates "gill", the volume measure to either a Medieval Latin word for "jar" or a Gaullish word for "vessel". So it's likely that "kill" in the sense of watercourse is related to "gill" in the sense of liquid measure.
  10:42am zzmz:

these music convince me xylophone and marimba were star instruments back then.
  10:45am zzmz:

i used bass marimba once. at pianissiomo roll, its drone sound was unworldy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45am Jan Turkenburg:

Robert, I like this kind of inquiries!
Avatar 10:47am MHLee:

There was a story I read the other day where a guy tries to go back in time to save Elvis's twin. He ends creating a timeline where Elvis dies and Jesse popularized opera as the dominant force in music.

hahahaha, great story MHLee!

good morning Jan!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54am Lizardner Dave !:

Looked into the Todt Hill thing here, one version says the Dutch put a cemetery there in the 1700s (which is still there and I have family members buried in it) and used the German word for "death" for some reason. The church there is Moravian which is a version of Protestantism that had its origins in Germany so maybe that's why?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55am Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Ursula! (and I just realized I haven't officially welcomed Martinibomb! ;-) )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am Jan Turkenburg:

@Dave, Who knows...
Avatar 10:59am MHLee:

In older English Dutch and German are used interchangeably... there are the old rumor t's because English couldn't understand Deutsch... but it was more of how you might say Dutch is a Germanic language, but instead people were referring to German as a Dutch language... if I remember correctly...
Avatar 11:00am Martinibomb:

Yeh! You're way late Jan! Hah <3 Good chance I am picking up a 1976 Old Chicago Pinball Machine (electro mechanical) the theme of the machine fits this show if you saw the art on it
Avatar 11:07am Martinibomb:

Is it station manager Ken's bday today?
  11:08am Listener Robert:

Do you restore pinballs, Martinibomb?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am Jan Turkenburg:

@MB, I don't know
Avatar 11:09am Ursula1000:

Happy bday Ken and thanks for my vaccine!
  11:16am Listener Robert:

In 1st Form (7th grade) shop class (wood working) I wanted to build a (strictly mechanical, gravity fed) pinball table as my project, but I could barely even get started in the time and with the skill I had. It would have had nails and rubber bands as the obstacles, and would have channeled steel marbles dropping thru target holes into channels under the table leading to where the score could be added as in an abacus. You would shoot by rolling the marble off your fingers with the desired force across the top.
Avatar 11:17am chresti:

My son wanted to make a blimp for his science fair project.
Avatar 11:19am Ursula1000:

The marimba generally has softer tones than the xylophone---maybe it's because of the wood versus the metal plates?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am Jan Turkenburg:

Marimba and Xylophone are both made of wood
Avatar 11:20am MHLee:

There must be a song about blimps or dirigibles somewhere, but I can't think of any.
  11:22am Listener Robert:

I know there are metal xylophones resembling glockenspiels ("play bells") in sound and construction, but the work "xylophone" technically means "wood sound".
Avatar 11:22am Ursula1000:

oops thinking glockenspiel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22am Jan Turkenburg:

With metal plates it would be Metallophone, or Vibraphone, as far a I know. We should ask NotsoKWYet, he is a quilified percussionist
Avatar 11:23am Ursula1000:

doing some searching and it appears to be a tonality thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am Jan Turkenburg:

Glockenspiel are the small thin metal ones.
Avatar 11:25am Ursula1000:

Solved! The Xylophone has a series of wooden bars, tuned to the relevant notes. The marimba has similar wooden bars with resonators (originally gourds, now tubes) underneath. The Vibraphone is a variant of the marimba, often with metal bars, but with a spinning butterfly at the top of the resonator giving a tremolo effect and the Glockenspiel has metal bars, again tuned to the relevant notes. Whew!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25am Jan Turkenburg:

Yes, I've seen that as an explanation as well, but then it's surely they are being mixed up all the time.
Avatar 11:26am Ursula1000:

I like whatever Cal Tjader plays! haha
Avatar 11:29am MHLee:

Yamaha sys the marimba is in the xylophone family.. so maybe it's using a wide versus narrow definition

Avatar 11:32am zivilars:

Hi everybody, hi Jan, thanks for the show!
Avatar 11:33am zivilars:

I'm late
  11:33am zzmz:

good orchestra level xylophones and marimbas are almost impossible to get them now due to over consumption of rosewoods. so sad. many recording are opted with sampled keyboards these days. but if you've experienced you could tell the clear difference.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34am Jan Turkenburg:

Hi zivilars!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35am Jan Turkenburg:

zzmz, so the difference lies in the sort of wood as well?
  11:36am zzmz:

whereas vintage xylophones and marimbas do not guarantee the quality. they need to oil the rosewood bars time-to-time to prevent cracks.
  11:37am zzmz:

yes quality rosewoods are gone long ago.
Avatar 11:39am MHLee:

There's a rosewood grand piano held by an art gallery near me. The value is so extreme that they don't want anything to touch it
  11:39am zzmz:

you must've heard xylophone sync with soprano. that kind of sonority can't have it with modern manufactured mallets instruments these days.
Avatar 11:39am MHLee:

ironically a sign sits on top of it "Don't place ANYTHING on the piano!"
  11:41am zzmz:

all rosewood were consumpted for coffee tables for nouveau riches
Avatar 11:43am MHLee:

This was an extremely wealthy family which all died rather tragically in the 1920s I think. One of them got run over by a street car.
  11:43am johnk77:

here is a current manufacturer of
rosewood marimbas
carroll has a 5 octave version

Avatar 11:43am MHLee:

The maid, a woman nearing 100, still lived on site about 4 years ago
  11:45am zzmz:

yes, I've used carroll many times! they also have bass marimba!

Thank you for this story MHLee! We need more and more story-telling here at Sheena's.

I learned to love these old phonographs through Tiny Tim of all people. His later work has him saying (SUNG BY --- at ---- Recrods) then singing in an octave like this.
