Listener comments!

  9:08am Parq:

Does anyone else find that the closing notes of Hatikva never sound quite right without the opening notes of Jujus following them?
  9:14am spaniel:

hello Doug and world. what a glorious AM. enjoying this opening set.

i agree parq, high horn to low bass sounds nice.
  9:26am Listener Dave from NH:

A little dub to get my Friday started? Don't mind if I do.
  9:27am dc pat:

just what I wanted to hear today--caveman reggae
  9:32am Bad Ronald:

Give the summer some!
  9:46am Swami:

Get the blood pumpin'! Thats it. I'm leavin work early!
  9:52am Parq:

Then, Swami, head for the Knitting Fact and dig on Billy, Ken, Clay and the gang. Wish I could, but I'm stuck on a full day today.
  9:54am GUMBY:

Samba Pa' TI - The ability to convey season and nature, breeze and waves through simply vibrating the air. Absolutely awe inspiring.
  10:03am Paul Sherratt:

Caught part of a French tv documentary on the Coney Island finale, the other day. ( Bitter ) sweet.

PS. Here's to the Mammoth Merenghi !
  10:04am Zach in Philly:

"Over the Waves" and "William Tell Overture, Finale" have struck the summer chord in me. Normally, this is a season I dread, but these sounds remind me of what I do in fact dig about the all too warm months.
Parq, right on about the closing and opening tracks! It's a segue supreme.
  10:08am Doug:

I want this Lemarque thing to be playing anytime I'm walking somewhere. Can that be arranged?
  10:09am marionfrenchie:

boy! I want to go downtown right away and hop on one of the wood horses!
  10:09am Paul Sherratt:

Tati lives !
  10:11am dead corporate eyes:

Nice color scheme today. Looks a bit autumnal but well-executed.
  10:19am -Sen:

I'm just enjoying the music, thank you!
  10:28am Zach in Philly:

Wow & Woah Nelly! Bobby Lumpkin & the Kapers have nailed it! Are they from Bakersfield by any chance?
  10:33am frenchee:

wow, very metaphysical this morning, Doug!

But it doesn't necessarily mean you consider your conscience a separate entity--after all, your heart is part of you and plenty of people say, "My heart is bothering me."...
  10:36am Hugo:

Oops, didn't catch the Lemarque. From which part of the movie is it? Well, I'll find out in due course.

Playtime is wonderful (as are the four other Tatis)
  10:39am Doug:

You make a fine point. I will let my brain know (later, when it wakes up from its nap).
  10:42am GUMBY:

Doug enlightening as always. Never thought about actual people playing at the carousel. It must have been sweltering in wool uniforms, like a battlefield more than a carnival.
  10:43am Paul Sherratt:


Never mind all that stuff in the big galleries and museums.
I've seen Mon. Hulot's tennis racket on display in Bexhill on Sea !

Give The Summer Some ! ( Ronald, B. )

And this fab David Murray has fetched the dog, Jim, in from the garden.
  10:46am Doug Ypsilantis:

Sen is that you old friend?
  10:46am Bog:

Hi Doug,
seem to me there is a "t" in "chant pour une nouvelle afrique du sud" "song for a new south africa"
great tune
greetings from Toulouse ...
  10:51am Doug:

I'm sure you are right. I just continued the typo I found here:
  11:03am north guinea hills:

wow, i don't think i've heard doug play tony oxley before. i must now have been paying attentions
  11:06am Hugo:

AH, Karin Krog! Very much appreciated (but you knew that)
  11:08am Sean Daily:

Ah, I know the weekend's coming when I hear you, Doug. Very nice.
  11:11am kent goldings:

Hey, is anyone else having trouble with the Windows 20 k stream? Mine has been shutting down repeatedly this morning.

Thanks for all the awesome tunes this morning, Doug. Nothing says summer like free jazz!
  11:12am north guinea hills:

my realplayer stream wasn't working, so i had to use windows media
  11:14am Parq:

Yes, Kent, I'm having the same problem. It's aggravating because I don't even like WMP all that much, but I'm not allowed to install any new audio software on my work puter.
  11:15am Swami:

My connect had been cutting out for milliseconds, but is fine now . . . similar issuewith Windows/Real Player
  11:15am marionfrenchie:

VLC is one the the best ways to go, rarely bugs with steaming, and FREE
  11:16am stev:

The realplayer stream has been working OK for me this morning.
  11:17am marionfrenchie:

ahah, just read over my comment, and realized I spelled streaming into STEAMing. Ain't that soooooooo funny?
  11:19am kent goldings:

Thanks guys. Yeah, I have the same issue as some others around here - I'm at work and can only listen to the Windows stream... or should I say steam, marionfrenchie?
  11:19am Paul Sherratt:


No, this morning , it should definitely be ... steaming
  11:22am marionfrenchie:

psheeeeeeeeee tfuuupsheeeeee clac psheeeeeeeeee
steaming it shall be!
  11:24am fishmonkeystew:

A steaming pile of VLC for the win! I too am a fan of VLC for both audio AND video.
  11:32am Parq:

I've been thinking about Audiology for home. Any opinions?
  11:34am Swami:

Audiologists who pay home visits? I have a couple of referals for the Long Island area.
  11:45am north guinea hills:

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh floating down the river on a tortoise listening to fahey, it doesn't get any better...!
  11:49am Hugo:

Ah, Jesse Winchester! Beautiful vibe to those early ones, particularly the first.
  11:53am Madison Listener:

Hey, the most recent song is at the end of the list, but the page refreshes to the top! That's not right.
  12:02pm Ike:

There MUST be some way to hack into work computers that prevent you from installing software on them, and force them to accept VLC or Winamp, or whatever. I hate being treated like a potential terrorist in my workplace. Fortunately they put Winamp on this computer, but I'm still being treated like a risk factor more than a human being, because I can't install FlashMute or other useful programs that would help me do my job more efficiently.
  12:03pm Paul Sherratt:

From: Parq

Does anyone else find that the closing notes of Hatikva never sound quite right without the opening notes of Jujus following them?

Parq, I'm quite sure that I used to !

Doug, that closing Dorothy Carter song definitely fulfils the criteria of " always leave them wanting more "
  12:04pm marionfrenchie:

boy, I'm beating my wfmu record: been listening non-stop for 9 hours! Woow! Friday DJs rocked my day, and it's not even finished yet!
  10:41pm mike tp 15x:
