Can't wait for Silver Jews!! Am in London and they are going to get me through the Monday afternoon blues!!!

Thanks Jon, mine seems to have calmed down as soon as I posted that comment... Shamed into good behaviour I suppose.
  10:48am Parq:

Hi, gang. Joining the party at half-time after suffering through a gratifyingly rare office breakfast. Disappointed that there's no comic on the playlist, but psyched that I didn't miss the SJs.
  10:50am parq:

sorry bout the comics parq

promise promise next week!
  10:56am tamara:

Really enjoying the show and this Silver Jews set is sounding real classic -- Trains Across the Sea is one of my all time favorite songs
  11:08am Parq:

Sounds great, but may I be so bold as to suggest a wee bit more gain on the front vocal mike?
  11:10am bw:


it was recorded yesterday
  11:11am Glenn L:

You just keep listening to that "front" vocal mike
Parq. It'll get louder.
  11:12am ange:

"half hours on earth, what are they worth? I don't know."

half hours of live Silver Jews on WFMU - Valuable!
  11:12am Parq:

Glenn, as long as the music stays like this, I can deal just fine with whatever the mix is.
  11:13am bw:

one hour!!
  11:14am bw:

sorry my host mic is low here.. but only for 2 minutes...
  11:17am Glenn L:

Thanks Parq!
Davids mic really does get louder.
