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.

  Thu. 7/24/08 9:11am Negator:

Mornin' Troubes! Have you seen the documentary "King of Kong"?
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:22am chris in brooklyn:

But my unicorn is a haflinger unicorn. It's SUPPOSED to be small.
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:26am Negator:

  Thu. 7/24/08 9:29am 55 Fingers:

Was that a Jay Ward soundtrack for transition music before?
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:30am paul:

  Thu. 7/24/08 9:31am 55 Fingers:

Is it me or is the stream not matching Trouble's list?
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:33am Negator:

Yeah, they're playing "a game". I love Bloodrock though.
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:33am chris in brooklyn:

55: I was wondering about that too. figured I was just dumb or something.
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:35am stu:

the song title display on the player is not matching whats' being played. yesterday I had a song of Ken's for hours - it never changed.
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:36am Negator:

This station kick's ass too. I wonder if it's the same station as last time. Ken "F'n" Freedman. He really does amuse himself.
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:40am Peter:

What was that song.. "I Remember" that was played around 9:28AM? I did not know whether to laugh or cry? I might have to pick that LP up if I ever see it.
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:44am dale:

Stephanie says is beautiful. Is it new or old?
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:45am Negator:

That was the band Bloodrock from Bloodrock II called D.O.A. 1971
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:45am chris in brooklyn:

Peter: I believe you refer to the Bloodrock track "DOA" Their only hit, it charted at 36 in '71.
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:49am 55 Fingers:

Trouble, I'd love to hear jo stafford but us streamers are subjected to 'on the sunday morning coming down', what kris kirstoferson?
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:49am trouble:

the keren ann track is a few years old
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:50am Peter:

Thanks so much. I will keep my eyes peeled for a copy of "Bloodrock II". It was striking!
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:51am R. P.:

This reminds me of April 1st.
  Thu. 7/24/08 9:56am trouble:

whoaaaa, all fixed.! i didn't have a clue why the comments were so not connecting to the music. You need to be more assertive dear web listeners. yell out "Help" when the stream is wack attack! ouch SOrry.xo
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:00am stu:

help - the playlist never listed the bloodrock song. and my winamp palyer is showing "staircase" even tho Trouble is speaking now at the end of the set
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:04am jason:

whats wrong with kris kristoferson?
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:04am trouble:

stu, you might need to hit refresh and/or close down and start upagain to get rid of the old prob
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:04am Ken:

You might need to shut down winamp and start up the stream again, not sure. Everything seems AOK now from my end. Sorry about the problem, the automatic switched screwed up and didn't switch to the main studio at 9am like it's supposed to. So what everybody was hearing was our "Plan C-" randomly shufflingMP3s from our library.
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:06am Ken:

The real shame is that Trouble's opening set today was fantastic. Go back and listen to the archive later.
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:06am 55 Fingers:

jason: Nothing wrong with kris (Hell, Heaven's Gate is my favorite movie!) but he's no jo.
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:10am stu:

ok - I've shut down and re-started. will let you know if I encounter any other abnormalities
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:10am Negator:

Thanks for the update, Ken. The shuffled set was strong. Especially the first 30 min. I always listen to Trouble's show again at home. I also use it as a guide for selecting new music. Trouble is rare......
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:14am Sasha:

mark tamea! truly amazing. thanks trouble
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:18am spaniel:

i really enjoyed that festival song. i had to listen to it a second time.
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:20am trouble:

hey! that's no fair! i would love to play it twice...:)
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:26am jason:

why can't you do "the rewind?" hot 97 does it all the time.
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:26am spaniel:

you have my permission but i'm really enjoying the current trajectory as well.
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:26am paul:

  Thu. 7/24/08 10:26am TTTTT:

Those moon traveler guys were awfully chatty
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:29am Listener Dave from NH:

Hot 97-style rewind, huh?
Funk Master Trouble has a certain ring to it, doesn't it?
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:31am 55 Fingers:

Put the Trouble Funk in your Trunk!
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:39am Negator:

susan cadogan I will be looking into. Bent Spoon written up in Gormet magazine. I like the name "Troubes"
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:41am jamesie:

I dont know why my winamp playlist had http://live365.com/play/wfmu1 in it.... strange... maybe part of the earlier shenanegans
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:42am Parq:

Miss T, no names please, but I've heard "yammering on" on this station often enough. Your last mike break didn't even come close. I'm glad Ice Pack enjoyed the Kit movie.
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:43am trouble:

the bent spoon in princeton , NJ was also writen up in this issue of edible New jersey
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:46am nh_dave:

I could listen to miles bass lines all day long from this era
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:49am Listener Dave from NH:

I used to live in Princeton (oof - almost 9 years ago?) and still swear by The Halo Pub for ice cream. Also, The Pancake House.
My tastes had to skew cheap because I lived next door to the Record Exchange.
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:55am trouble:

urgh, dave you have exposed my inner core of conflict. I too love halo pub, but bent spoon does blood orange and plum /lavender sorbets...what can i do?
  Thu. 7/24/08 10:58am Parq:

In the words of cheap guy-fantasy movies too numerous to count, Miss T, have both.
  Thu. 7/24/08 11:03am sugarwolf:

you can never eat too much ice cream!!
  Thu. 7/24/08 11:06am dc pat:

I ate so much ice cream last night that my 2 year old son was up all night...
  Thu. 7/24/08 11:08am john:

Oh man, JUST missed Francoise Hardy, who I've had a massive crush on since some high school french class or other....awe-inspiring playlist today!
  Thu. 7/24/08 11:10am Ken:

I just realized that the archive of today's show will not contain the real beginning of Trouble's show. Unless somebody recorded it over the air... let me know if so.. ken at wfmu dot org
  Thu. 7/24/08 11:16am Listener Rickie D:

... in the years that followed airwave listeners teased the online listeners for missing it. Yes, yes, Trouble reached a peak that morning, but there was no proof, merely the memories that a lucky few proudly carried around with them.
  Thu. 7/24/08 11:25am Parq:

"Black Coffee" is one of my most requested songs, I'll tell ya that. Great reading by Sarah.
  Thu. 7/24/08 11:37am spaniel:

a thursday thirdtake!
  Thu. 7/24/08 11:49am Emile:

'yo yo yo, trouble is officially the biggest midget in da game!!!!'

thanks for the slim n' slam
  Thu. 7/24/08 11:52am dale:

wow! the boss goes wall of sound....I've always liked this song.
  Thu. 7/24/08 11:55am john:

Doesn't he sound like Stephin Merritt there, though?
  Thu. 7/24/08 11:56am pat:

@john, totally magnetic fields, with a little riff borrowed from the kids are all right
  Thu. 7/24/08 11:56am Emile LeBrun:

  Thu. 7/24/08 12:01pm dale:

wfuv plays that springsteen song, and like everything they play, they play it too much.
  Thu. 7/24/08 12:21pm Drew:

I always thought the Merritt song was kind of a Bruce rip-off circa Born in the USA/Tunnel of Love... so there.
