Good morning Joe and all...thanks for playing Dean and Britta, imo their first record produced by Tony Visconti was their finest so far...
  9:19am morphe':

Parvardigar (def??? source may/may not be reliable - sounds accurate??)
Parvardegār or Parwardigār (پروردگار; Persian pronunciation: [pærˌværdeˈgɒːr], Hindustani pronunciation: [ˌpərʋərd̪ɪˈgɑːr]) is an appellation or title for God in the Persian language. Its literal meaning is sustainer, a name metaphorically and attributively used for Khuda or God. The word has Persian roots and comes from parva- meaning to foster, cherish, to nurture, to develop/care for. Digar, when applied in this sense, means "again and again." Thus Parvardigar means "to care again and
again."

I always think of John Allen's monologue about Pink Floyd when I hear them now, paraphrasing: "Pink Floyd is great, but think about the times when you were really into Pink Floyd, and then realize that those times in your life when you were really into Floyd were just really depressing times in your life"

Hi, Joe! Hey, all! One time on the island of Chiloe at a campsite in the national park a bunch of students and hippies gathered around a campfire and then a German pulled out a guitar and did the best version of Wish You Were Here that any of us gathered there had ever heard. The requests did not stop after that.

I translated the Italian lyrics back into english:
Lyrics
Back to the sea where I dreamed with you
And it seems to be saying hello to me
Bye Bye!
I still see the old friends I have
And they greet me
Bye Bye!
And on the clear beach nothing has changed
Under the hot sun I look for you among the people
I know you're there
Here you saw me, and you
You come running towards me
And you're smiling at me
Bye Bye! I cry calling you
Bye Bye! Love hug me
Bye Bye! I came back to you
Bye Bye!
You don't know how anxiously I waited
To see you again
Bye Bye!
Now I never want to lose you
Not even a moment
Bye Bye!
Summer kisses will become easy
We will spend a hundred hours together in love
But then it will come
The day that I leave
You will come to the station
The hand you shake
Bye Bye! I am about to cry
Bye Bye! The train goes I cry
Bye Bye! Do not forget me
Bye Bye!
Instrumental (you don't know)
Bye Bye!
Instrumental (now of you not)
Bye Bye!
Summer kisses will become easy
We will spend a hundred hours together in love
But then it will come
The day that I leave
You will come to the station
The hand you shake
Bye Bye! I am about to cry
Bye Bye! The train goes I cry
Bye Bye! Do not forget me

Hi Brian - you still got that Bowie look going?
Avatar 11:53am Joe McG:

Ending today's show with a song about things. Hope you encounter some GOOD things today and all week long. Thanks for listening and commenting today. And thanks for your support of WFMU, as always!

SOAPBOX MOMENT: As a queer person, I object to Bowie's appropriation and exploitation of queer culture and then using "closeted" to describe his orientation, when the only personal threat he faced by "coming out" was… maybe losing some record sales? Probably not. OK, done.

As Brian said! Thanks, Joe. Wonderful stuff. This last set has been especially fantastic!

Later on, Surfactants!

@threemoons Was that the night Laurie performed and Lou was just hanging out? I had a long chat with him that night as well.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11:55am Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

Joe, you're the best! Thanks, and thank you everyone for lively, informative and entertaining chat as ususal!
Fred: I wondered about that British note, too, but I think it might be because the person is writing about the USA.
