Listener comments!

  9:10pm Sean:

Listening in from Somerville, Massachusetts -Prospect Hill
  9:13pm bethany:

Hello Prospect Hill.

Everyone else, it's time to divulge where you are listening from.

Go for it, say hello.

Your friendly host,
  9:16pm john:

Greenwich, CT. Only an hour away, but still have to pick it up on the internet! Almost got the station driving out of the city earlier, though!
  9:16pm dave:

_wow_, i really like this ecstatic sunshine track.

and i'm listening from sunny morristown, NJ, home of racist mayors and nascent bike culture.
  9:20pm Ike:

Morristown has a racist mayor? Really? It always seemed so upscale liberal to me. Go figure. I haven't been paying enough attention to the local news.

I'm in Newark, NJ, home of Cory Booker. This Ecstatic Sunshine track is great.
  9:23pm Richard:

Hello and Thank You From Reeders, PA
  9:25pm dave:

well, it's not clear the mayor's GENUINELY racist so much as willing to compromise in pursuit of political expedience.

and political expedience, in morristown's case, means hating on the immigrants.
  9:26pm dave:

it is clear ike and i are a voting bloc on the ecstatic sunshine issue.
  9:26pm Michael:

Greetings, and it's nice to be in the room with you.

Well...the same sonic room anyway.

Salut from Clearwater, FL
  9:28pm Michael in Idaho:

I am listening to WFMU - what has become the sound of new york and new jersey for me in the past two years. I am listening from Ketchum, Idaho, which is sort of far away, but not really an insurmountable distance or anything like that. That sort of distance is more along the lines of the surface of Mars, which is similar to Idaho in some, but not most ways.
  9:29pm Sean:

We are all here riding the radio waves
  9:30pm Joshua (via phone to Bethany):

Listening from Irvington, NY and on FM not online....hence he phoned in...
  9:35pm Kevin:

Drifting off in Bedfordshire, England.
  9:36pm Sean:

Yes, here we all are
  9:39pm bethany:

Y'all are the best.

Did anyone bring snacks?
  9:42pm dave:

by the way, if you're still feeling out-of-phase, i've heard any number of straightforward PLL implementations (phase detector, VCO, and amplifier) can be had from your standard component supply houses.
  9:44pm john:

I've got currants and almonds. Pretty lame, but I'm down 25 pounds and all my really old clothes fit now. WFMU, free--form, experimental, and dietetic.
  9:47pm bethany:

I read an article in the Times that said people who listened to a different radio station every day lost weight and kept it off. I believe - without equivocation - that WFMU is a different radio station every minute. Let me find that link....
  9:49pm dave:

freeform: nature's weight-loss miracle!
  9:50pm john:

Oh cool, could do before and after WFMU pictures.
  9:52pm ?:

Here's a link to that NYTimes article:
  9:53pm dave:

to be fair, that article also suggests the japanese technique of 'kaizen', which i'm pretty sure involves riding a fixed-gear track bike in the distance equivalent of the indy 500 while salarymen bet their weekly wages on whether you'll drop dead the exertion or the fugu and dodgy sake you consumed in mass quantities last night.
  9:55pm bethany:

Yes, fixed-gear bikes must be the key to my mastery of Kaizen!!

Nice one, Dave. :)
  9:56pm montreal:

more so than any other fmu dj, bethany picks tracks which confuse the cat.
  10:04pm dave:

confused cats: nature's weight loss miracle!
  10:05pm Down South:

Eating oreos - sans milk. This is my freeform diet.
  10:10pm Francisco Torres:

Listening from San Juan, Puerto Rico.
  10:11pm john:

Cat's asleep in the living room so I couldn't test the theory. I'll just assume it works.
  10:24pm Jeff:

I don't have a cat, but this Brant piece is giving me a case of vertigo.
  10:26pm Droll:

John, I've seen Confuse-A-Cat on TV and believe me, you'll know if it's working.
  10:28pm john:


She's here now, and looking vaguely confused. Wish I could link a picture I just took.
  10:33pm dave:

it's a credit to this set that i can't entirely tell where one piece ends and the next starts.
  10:34pm dave:

(that said, who's sunken, and how do i get more of that?)
  10:38pm Ike:

My cat's not even remotely confused by this, but then, she has grown up with FMU.

Alan Licht, eh? Cool.
  10:39pm bethany:

all of the sunken info is filled in on the playlist now...they're new to me, as is the label.
  10:42pm dave:

thanks! i got one step ahead when you said "eye electric organ". i am, as the kids say, in the process of breaking myself off a piece of that.
  10:46pm bethany:

No guesses on this one?
  10:47pm Willy Voet:

the Moglass
  10:49pm bethany:

Yes, Willy. Correct.

Does that mean I play the song too often or that you are an especially keen listener?
  10:53pm Willy Voet:

I like the song too, so I have remembered the artist's name. Actually, before you played it, I thought for sure I heard it on OCDJ's show a few yeras ago, and he listed it as the Belgian electronic artist aMute. Maybe I misread the playlist. In any case, I enjoy the song, so I don't think you play it too often. I am a keen listener of anything Stochastic.
  10:53pm Steve:

Sorta near LA checkin' in
  11:00pm dave:

wow, this is nice. it reminds me of loscil, but less electronc.
  11:02pm steven:

listening from philadelphia - took in too much of the sun today...
  11:05pm pj:

so wait, im trying to find the moglass because i really dug that song. is it an album done by Tom Carter & Vanessa Arn?
  11:06pm dave:

aquarius records has it, pj. search for "moglass".
  11:07pm dave:

and yep, it's Tom Carter + Vanessa Arn.
  11:14pm bethany:

It's a split CD with 2 tracks byCarter/Arn and 3 by The Moglass...glad the word is getting out about them.
  11:18pm freeware:

wow that last one hurt my ears! in a good way though... Listening from Essex, NJ here
  11:18pm Willy Voet:

Some recordings by the Moglass here:
  11:44pm dave:

nice nighttime music.
  11:45pm dave:

oh, if a little depressing, given the subject.
  11:50pm Droll:

Ahhh, I thought the beautiful melancholy would go right up until the end, then there would be a loud crash followed by a short second movement propelled by the sound of rearranging deck chairs, then a pregnant pause, then the station ID.
  8:55pm Pat:

Magnificent Show!
  12:41am Pat:

Oh ya, Oregon, near Portland.
