A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Listener comments!

  Thu. 6/12/08 9:03am jtreg:

mornin my dears
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:03am Bad Ronald:

Good Morning Trouble. Glad to see you've got the comments back.
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:10am Dickdong:

"up the rabbit hole"? Surely it's 'down the rabbit hole' - unless you're in the rabbit hole and up on your way out.
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:18am dale:

Selda: gorgeous!
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:22am m:

glad to see you aren't going anywhere this summer trouble!
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:23am Ted from Baltimore:

Trouble, you've got our household totally hooked on Flight of the Conchords! Everytime I hear a sweet soulful intro now I expect to hear Jermaine's sexy Kiwi crooning.
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:30am sugarwolf:

I think you mean "sixy" crooning, Ted.
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:34am jonathan:

i've heard the 2nd brazilian girls cd. no good. my pardner anna feels as you do about them.
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:40am trouble:

i had heard that too, but i still should have sought it out to give a listen...
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:43am Ian:

Which Gavin Bryars track was that?
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:43am Dale:

I have the Best of the Shangrilas and when this came on i was blown away....as gothic as you can get, especially for the period.
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:49am trouble:

sorry ian, apparently one week away and i forget it all. i edited in the gavin bryars cut into the playlist now..
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:50am Tempy:

i'll never learn... so beautiful. awesome playlist in general.
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:53am Bad Ronald:

Diggin Desmond Dekker
  Thu. 6/12/08 9:59am m:

20 albums in and i'm still not sure how i feel about sparks...but always waiting for the one to push me over the edge
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:00am Hugo Winterhalter:

I remember Julie London's seductive pose; her sultriness matching the amber in her eyes reflected from the tall bottle of bourbon which no one could refuse.
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:00am dale:

Is this the Canadian band Selector with the song "celebrate the Bullet?"
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:00am Agostinho:

2 tones bands are great.
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:01am Ian:

Thanks Trouble!
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:09am Agostinho:

Like Leonard Cohen+Can+world music
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:10am Webhamster Henry:

Hi Trouble:
Just putting in a plug for another good Upstate animal sanctuary,
Catskill Animal Sanctuary:
and check out the Declaration of Compassion for the planet and its inhabitants:
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:16am Cecile:

Trouble - if you could find it in your heart to play Raasaan Roland Kirk's version of "What's Going On" I would be very greateful!
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:16am north guinea hills:

i dig-dug the radio i-ching, i feel roland kirk's soul in that firey back porch miasma... yummy stuff!
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:18am Dale:

Also a big event at Rhinebeck fairgrounds this weekend .. antique farm equipment and antique motorcylce show/flea market. Go to woodstock then shoot across 209 to Rhinebeck to do both.
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:19am jonathan:

still wondering about sparks. i'm old, but there's something there.
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:21am Bad Ronald:

It's their sense of humor that I like.
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:23am Jeffersonic:

Santogold reminds me of Siouxsie in that last song, especially in the chorus.
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:25am Cecile:

does Sparks have a huge following on the East Coast, because it seems like only me, Mick from the Dirtbombs, and 4 other people out here in the Midwest like them.
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:25am Bad Ronald:

For some reason the west coast is a breeding ground for bands that have a killer sense of humor: Surf Punks, The Tubes, The Dickies and Sparks.
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:32am Cecile:

I thought Wisconsin's own Killdozer, Frogs and Couch Flambeau were pretty hilarious, but then again, I'm from the snowy North originally.

No, but really, where is the Sparks love in Minneapolis?
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:32am Ted from Baltimore:

I had not heard of Sparks until Rollercoaster was on TV a few months ago, but my wife remembers a lot of her friends being into them way back in the day in Akron, OH
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:33am jonathan:

bad ronald.
hello. i agree. sparks and the tubes. perfect comparison.
have you ever heard outside looking inside? fee waybill is fucking insane.
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:35am Cecile:

Oh, I stand corrected. Ohio loves stuff like that.

I loved that Jello Biafra called odd Australian group Skyhooks, "the Australian Sparks"
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:36am Laurie:

I always assumed ironic facial hair on young men was a tribute to Sparks.

  Thu. 6/12/08 10:36am Bad Ronald:

No I haven't Jonathan. Thanks for the tip, I will definitely check them out.
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:38am Harvey:

I'm always looking for Trouble
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:38am jonathan:

bad ronald.
that's a title of a tubes song on outside/inside. i never understood that record.
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:39am Bad Ronald:

OOPs now I got it, I don't have all their stuff...
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:41am jonathan:

it's not good. but it is. just like sparks.
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:43am Bad Ronald:

OK cool thanks again!
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:44am G.:

Haven't heard this song in 30 years, lol, takes me back to high school in Brasil...

Secos & Molhados = Wets and Drys

flores astrais = astral flowers

they keep singing about a "lua cheia" (full moon)
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:46am Bad Ronald:

RE Sparks I got this off of Maria's play list yesterday -
"Sparks will be performing this new CD live this Friday night in London. It can be seen live at http://www.cdpulse.com/venue/page/Carling+Academy+Islington
at 3PM east coast time (8pm GMT) FYI."
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:48am Roy:

Thanks Trobules. Chirping along here in sunny Morristown. Been a distressful morning but the afternon looks to be pleasent. Stay Dubby. Chers!
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:56am sugarwolf:

hey the Pines!! I am going to Prospect Park & Coney Island with one of them this Saturday.
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:57am m:

say, uhh... any word on when the marathon goodies get sent out for people who gave the big bucks?
  Thu. 6/12/08 10:59am trouble:

i love the pines! and i only have this one track. tell your pine friend to send me more and i will play them more!
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:09am sugarwolf:

trouble: I will burn you a copy of their greatest hits CD. I will tell Joe you are a fan.

m: in past years I have gotten my swag in August.
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:12am trouble:

thanks tons!
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:14am dale:

Scott Walker never sounded better.....
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:16am Wes:

I was thinking the same thing...
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:17am m:

thanks sugarwolf, just curious!
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:18am Cecile:

They told me August.
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:23am jtreg:

Lavender Diamond hits the bullseye - wow!
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:23am Harvey:

Becky Stark has such a beautiful voice
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:24am Ken:

Dont forget everybody, free tickets for the July 4th Sonic Youth / Feelies become available at Noon today at:


The tickets will only last an hour probably, sologon right at noon if you want tix. This is for the show being put together to celebrate WFMU's 50th anniversary.
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:25am Laurie:

There are times I wish I lived in New York...

Maybe I will go to the Pratt Institute for my MLS!
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:26am Listener Dave from NH:

I want to go to the show, but I'm kind of out of luck because I can't really pop into midtown to pick up the tickets beforehand.
I been zapped!
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:27am max:

Does the "log on" require a password, or does one just try to hit the rivertoriver webpage?
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:36am Kristy Foom:

Can you please post the url to the French pop blog? thanks!
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:39am Listener Dave from NH:

Squarepusher's mix on the East Flatbush Project remix CD is worth the price of admission.
Not that it's even remotely radio-friendly.
  Thu. 6/12/08 11:40am trouble:

http://fillessourires.blogspot.com/ is the blog by the filles fragiles guy.
  Thu. 6/12/08 12:00pm j from bklyn:

river to river already crashed
  Mon. 6/16/08 12:02pm Barry:

Share your sentiments about Bo Diddley. Believe it or don't, I saw him at a Ramada Inn, Travel Lodge whatever, at some obscure truck stop exit on I-5. One of the all time weirdest gigs I've ever been to. Bo Diddley and a billion truckers and traveling salesmen. Not only was the woman I was with the prettiest girl in the place, she was one of 7 total present (4 were waitresses). They were totally unprepared for the crowd - had no idea who he was. It took a half-hour to get a drink. Two drink minimum no one ever came back to take the second order. He must have run out of money - needed that extra gig to make it to Portland, I guess.
