Hey Feld! I feel ya...can't wait to travel again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm Mr Fab:

The Fab fam actually did get our passports a few months ago. Though, yeah, world travel is still a fantasy at this point...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm Feldy:

Just seeing the image of the passport stamps gets my heart racing
Avatar 12:03pm Ursula1000:

yep we're all passport'ed up and Global Entry'ed up ---waiting for that green light and....GO!
Avatar 12:05pm Sonderangebot:

Wait... I bet BERLIN is going to come at some point! :D HIIII!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm Rich in Washington:

I can't hear Human League without seeing Rik (from the Young Ones) dancing to them.
Avatar 12:06pm Ursula1000:

HI Sonderangebot! YEP, Berlin is our 7th stop in our journey!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm Feldy:

Ireland is open now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm Mr Fab:

Isn't it just "Lebanon" with no "the"? Or are there lots of Lebanons, and he's singing about the best one.
Avatar 12:07pm Ursula1000:

haha Rich! ahhh loved Rik!
Avatar 12:07pm desi:

Hola & no prob! Passport @ the ready w an always packed jump bag :)
Avatar 12:07pm Ursula1000:

hey desi!
Avatar 12:07pm Sonderangebot:

Maybe he's talking about Lebanon, New Hamsphire.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm Feldy:

LOL Rich. "Facist bullyboy"

Hey U1
Avatar 12:09pm Ursula1000:

Mr Fab--yeah, it's like "no, I'm talking about THE Lebanon, not those other fake ones"
Avatar 12:09pm Ursula1000:

Hiya Wenzo!

Probably safe to assume that we're not going to Kathmandu with Bob Seger
Avatar 12:11pm Ursula1000:

love Graham Coxon's Frippertronics attempts on this
Avatar 12:11pm Ursula1000:

Feld--maybe not Deger but Chagrin D'Amour may have say in that later
Avatar 12:13pm Ursula1000:

*Seger
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Mr Fab:

Pretty sure that was NOT Lucy singing there. If she could have sung like that, then maybe Ricky would have let her sing at the club more often.
Avatar 12:18pm Ursula1000:

poor Lucy---she just needed that 1 break
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm WR:

Happy to travel vicariously because I'm not ready to leave my bubble.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Mr Fab:

I liked Weird Al's "I Love Lucy" megamix.

(Hey, SOMEONE had to like it..?)
Avatar 12:20pm Ursula1000:

I'm w/ you on that WR! Though I have a good feeling about the Spring----wishful thinking
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Mr Fab:

So where's everyone planning on visiting? The missus and I have a pretty diverse itinerary:
- Nassau
- Iceland
- Morocco

not all at once
Avatar 12:25pm Ursula1000:

we have Ireland in our sights and Paris again
Avatar 12:25pm Ursula1000:

and seeing family in Spain hopefully in the summer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm Mr Fab:

Ireland! We've talked about that as well. I'm a third-generation Irishman, so pretty cut off from my roots.

I'll take a pass on kissing the Blarney Stone, tho...

Hi Ursula1000, folks!

Hi Pauly!
Avatar 12:31pm Sonderangebot:

I'd just wish someone who can drive around would take me on a US roadtrip. My favorite! The most exotic and weird country in the world!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm solo mon:

Ps hi U1k!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Mr Fab:

YAAAY, Egyptian Lover!!

A vocoder classic.
Avatar 12:32pm Ursula1000:

Careful with all that popping & locking Solo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Pauly from Clifton:

Mr Fab, my better half, and I have plans for Iceland and Ireland this summer. Hopefully not canceled this year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm solo mon:

Haha! I DJed w EL once. He beat matched records playing backwards by hand was insane.
Avatar 12:35pm Ursula1000:

Sonderangebot: that trek is pretty cool! I did a DJ tour way back when and for some reason (long story) we did it by car. In retrospect, it was pretty sweet seeing all the scenery.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm solo mon:

By hand meaning not using the turntable motor- just spinning them backwards manually to. The. Beat.
Avatar 12:36pm Ursula1000:

oh wow Solo---sounds crazy! locked in---old school! I think Abelton can do it for you now w 1 touch---not the same. :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Feldy:

I have this record. So good.... Egypt, Egypt is the place to be
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm solo mon:

Ableist ton live
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm solo mon:

All that insta synch stuff is what made me quit DJing clubs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm solo mon:

“What is a DJ if he can’t scratch?” - Egyptian Lover
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Feldy:

Dr Calculus... not new but new to me
Avatar 12:40pm Ursula1000:

the tech is fascinating but to trust the machine and not your ears I think is a lost art--I went from vinyl to CDs to USBs by passing the whole laptop thingy---USBs are still weird but I still feel like I'm "digging"
Avatar 12:40pm Ursula1000:

Feld-this was a side project from Stephen Duffy of Tin Tin Duffy fame--kinda ZTT/Art Of Noise era
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm solo mon:

Hee Hee! K taro!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm solo mon:

Played a bunch of umiliani last week ;-) love him.
Avatar 12:43pm Ursula1000:

he was amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm solo mon:

Agreed U1k- I am fascinated by the tech and incorporated serato and live into DJ sets for a while.
Avatar 12:48pm Ursula1000:

For me it's about trust and for me to DJ on a laptop, I'd need it to only run music because I'd be freaking if it crashed on me during a performance--and also the aesthetic of someone staring at the screen I don't particularly like---yet I still look at a USB and am like how can this all this fit...!
Avatar 12:50pm Sonderangebot:

Oh my why does 50% of 80s French groups must rhyme with silly words ! Why!!!!!
Avatar 12:51pm Ursula1000:

^haha

I often visit the River of denial
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Feldy:

Digital technology is great. Until it crashes. Not fully relying on technology gives me great comfort
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Feldy:

BTW this MADNESS track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm Rich in Washington:

well I certainly didn't expect this!
Avatar 12:57pm Ursula1000:

My big sis played this album over and over---it's imprinted on my brain
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Otis Fodder:

That was madness I tell ya, madness. Closes door, drinks more coffee, emails client to turn it on and off again.
Avatar 12:58pm Ursula1000:

Otis--I think I saw you doing that Madness ska skanking dance thing! Don't deny it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Otis Fodder:

This show would've made a good Aloha Friday. Speaking of past shows, links to Aloha and others are up on our main Sheena page in full bottom fold effect, oh yesss.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm Otis Fodder:

It was the cabbage patch with a bit of lambada.
Avatar 1:01pm Ursula1000:

oooh cool news one the archived Alohas
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01pm Rich in Washington:

Love this album so much!
Avatar 1:01pm Ursula1000:

this album is pretty flawless
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Mr Fab:

i wonder how they got these sounds? Like, what instruments are they playing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Feldy:

Yes Otis there's the link to the Xanadu marathon!
Avatar 1:04pm Ursula1000:

Prophet V doing the vibes sounds
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm Otis Fodder:

Have to believe we are magic or a prophet v in the heaven to be.

Brussel sprouts in the rain.
Avatar 1:08pm Ursula1000:

why are they so stinky when you start cooking them?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm Otis Fodder:

Andy putting on his Scott 3/4 mask.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm D Rok:

On the list of artists I never expect to hear on any WFMU affiliated station: Andy Williams

I am not complaining.
Avatar 1:09pm Sonderangebot:

Nothing like a Canadian sunset... the most romance you can expect
Avatar 1:10pm Ursula1000:

haha Hey D Rok!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm D Rok:

Hey Ursula1000!
Still one of the best Andy Williams related bits ever: youtu.be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm solo mon:

I like the smell of brussel sprouts.
Avatar 1:12pm Ursula1000:

ooh I'll have to check that Nelson Muntz clip after :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm solo mon:

There’s a thing over here called skunk cabbage. I want to landscape my yard w that stinky stuff but it requires a big like setting.
Avatar 1:14pm Ursula1000:

Me too Solo--but after that initial hydrogen sulfide gas thingy they emit at first---I guess broccoli does that too....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm solo mon:

“Bog like”
Avatar 1:15pm Sonderangebot:

Are there songs about New Zealand?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm solo mon:

Oh man, I grew up near a giant broccoli farm- the worst smell imaginable in summer a few weeks after the harvest
Avatar 1:16pm Ursula1000:

Hmm I don't know of any songs "about" NZ just from there like Split Endz....
Avatar 1:19pm Ursula1000:

Sorry, this song isn't about Italy per se...but I was in the mood for some Pulp!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm D Rok:

If you've never heard it, check out Andy Williams' cover of The Beach Boys' 'God Only Knows'. The piano arrangement is SPECTACULAR.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23pm Mr Fab:

'God Only Knows' is a pretty sacred text to me, but I think I can trust Andy. I'll check that out, D Rok.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Mr Fab:

not The Psychedelic Fur's "India"!?

Too obvious?
Avatar 1:24pm Ursula1000:

Saw that Nick DeCaro worked on that Andy album---Nick's solo album from 1974 is pretty great
Avatar 1:25pm Ursula1000:

Fab: it was on my spectrum but the 6+ minutes couldn't be edited---that said, I did let Egyptian Lover ride out! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm Feldy:

Momma always said "You let Egyptian Lover ride out, son"
Avatar 1:27pm Ursula1000:

Avatar 1:35pm Ursula1000:

I can confirm from some reputable sources that no one has ever followed Pulsallama with this next artist
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Feldy:

Oh yeah the ol' Pulsallama/Micheal Franks transition is a classic
Avatar 1:37pm Ursula1000:

haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Feldy:

As normal as the standard Elvis Costello/Tupac transition
Avatar 1:37pm Ursula1000:

I need to get an audio clip of John Cleese saying " and now for something completely different"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39pm Mr Fab:

speaking of big sister music, Michael Franks ' "Popsicle Toes" was a fave.
Avatar 1:41pm Ursula1000:

I'm a big Scritti Politti fan and when I heard Green Gartside was into Michael Franks I totally hear that falsetto
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

the more time goes by, the deeper my appreciation for Thomas Dolby

Avatar 1:54pm Ursula1000:
