Listener comments!

  9:20am Paul Sherratt:

Will home-owning wfmu supporters from overseas be entitled to vote on November 4 ? ( Well those who have returned ALL their library books, at any rate )
  9:22am Parq:

Sigh. Makes me wanna holler, throw up both my hands.
  9:30am Paul Sherratt:

I think you will still only be counted as one vote.
Maybe ..
  9:32am Parq:

One portfolio, one vote.
  9:36am Parq:

Onward. Whoo, Doug, modern rock on this show? Y'just never know.
  9:47am stingy d:

nice james carabelli article. and i like the set too. this cold sun song is great!
  9:56am stingy d:

wheres the place to go to get the cold sun record?
  10:00am Doug:

Stingy D, the Cold Sun is quite gettable. Just Google and yee shall find.
  10:00am stingy d:

nevermind! word in sound is actually worLd in sound
  10:01am stingy d:

yea i just get lazy sometimes and want to be told. thanks for playing it doug!
  10:15am St.Even:

this show is amazing.this whole station is salvation. i'm so glad it's not illegal yet to enjoy such things the world has to offer.
  10:15am nh_dave:

Doug, just wanted to let you know that I received the special premium from last year a week ago. The 5 hour "How long Trane's been gone" piece has made a very boring commute wonderful over the last week. So just wanted to say thanks, I know it was broadcast on the show (but not archived) so many heard pieces. Was great to hear it in it entirety.
  10:21am stingy d:

  10:21am Hugo:

I've never heard of election challengers before and tying voting eligibility to property ownership sounds very 19th century to me. Here in Norway that requirement was abolished in 1884. Losing the right to vote on account of a criminal offence was restricted after 1953, so the only way to lose the vote according to law is either high treason, attempted coup d'etat or electoral fraud, but only for a limited period. Voting rights are not tied to actual residence, so you can live in one place and vote in another. On the other hand, being a house owner with no debt would put me on the safe side, I suppose, as if it mattered ...
  10:21am esch oder anarchie!:

Having been up all night and spent this morning in a dark, foul mood, your foulmouthed plainspeaking just made me chuckle and cheered me up. Thanks Doug.
  10:22am Jack:

I also want to thank you Doug for airing "How Long Trane's Been Gone". It was my first real exposure to Coltrane, for which I am deeply grateful to you. Thanks again.
  10:23am north guinea hills:

wow, even on wfmu, i don't think i've heard 70's era arthur doyle....
  10:23am Hugo:

Ah yes, I got the Trane and the premium and the grand prize, so thanks for that huge bounty, Doug.
  10:24am stingy d:

whats this how long trane's been gone business?
  10:26am kr:

RE: nauseous mollusk: yes.. More & more nauseousy and mollusky every day.
  10:28am north guinea hills:

i ate some mollusks in my paella last night.... deliscious....

"how long trane's been gone" was a doc (15 hours?) doug aired last fall that's impossible find outside of wfmu. totally enlightening.

i would go as far as to say i wouldn't have been able to fall in love w/ my gf if it wasn't for that doc. it opened my third eye.
  10:28am Parq:

Sting, last year Doug ran a 7-part radio bio of 'Trane, titled "Tell Me How Long Trane's Been Gone."
  10:29am St.Even:

this would be a great addition to the soundtrack of a film version of Heinlein's Stranger In a Strange Land!
  10:29am stingy d:

and i can or can not go find this tpye of thing?
  10:29am Parq:

Sorry, NG, didn't realize I'd be duplicating your (far more eloquent) post.
  10:29am stingy d:

sorry for needing to be told again!
  10:32am Paul Sherratt:


"so the only way to lose the vote according to law is either high treason, attempted coup d'etat or electoral fraud"

>>>But only for a limited period !

  10:43am Parq:

Sting, if by "this type of thing", you mean the Trane bio, I'm afraid that would be "can not". Doug could explain it better than I, but apparently the copyright owners have asked that it be given very limited exposure.
  10:44am Parq:

And Doug, it's making my day hearing Andre Williams. I highly recommend his cover of "I've Got Someone to Kill".
  10:44am stingy d:

aw man what a shame, but understandbley so. thanks parq
  10:45am Hugo:


the maximum is ten years, according to current law. Members of the national socialist party, collaborating with the German occupation forces during the Second World War, lost their voting rights for a period, but not permanently.
  10:54am annie:

wow, walk away from the chat box and all hell breaks loose.
  10:55am Bad Ronald:

That'll learn ya!
  10:55am annie:

bad annie
  10:57am Paul Sherratt:


Somewhere I have a tape of Mr Williams singing in praise of " Gin " - recorded off a BBC programme ... know it ?
  10:58am Bruce in Boston:

Hey Doug, great song, but this is not Mathilini + Mahotella Queens?
  11:00am Hugo:

While on that subject, people put under care due to inablity to take care of themselves, still has the right to vote, according to a law amendment in 1980. Before, they were automatically disenfranchised. I wasn't aware of that. Hey, this show is educational in unexpected ways.
  11:02am Doug:

Hiya Bruce,
Group is billed as Irene & the Melodians. Sounds a lot like Mahlathini & the MQ to be sure. No worries though, because they are coming up! (There's a Comments section EXCLUSIVE!)
  11:08am Bruce/Boston:

Thanks Doug, this stuff is great!
  11:12am north guinea hills:

wow, i thought it sounded like art of noise. then i thought, "doug is playing art of noise"??!!!! ha!
  11:14am annie:

wow, the music is great!!! tickled pink at the beats..
  11:16am Rey Cruz:

aw yeah, the drummer is gettin' some!
  11:19am Parq:

Paul, no I don't know that Williams track, but it sounds great. Doug, diggin' the daylights out of this African piece.
  11:19am Rey Cruz:

if i were home I'd be dancing around like a fool. Wish i had a 4-day work week
  11:20am annie:

long time ago: iron city houserockers tune called turn it up; anyone know it?
  11:23am Paul Sherratt:

As I said, I taped it off a BBC show. The part which often arrests the listener is where Mr Williams considers the benefits of orange juice with his gin. He then exclaims " fuck the orange juice "

Can you say that on US radio listener comment boards ?
  11:30am Matt:

Cold Sun, Bobby Bare, Andreas Thomopoulos're turning me on to a ton of great stuff this morning!
  11:32am stingy d:

i was big on the cold sun too, and i llike the whitefield brothers a shit-ton for the first minute, but i didn't so much like what they tried to do after that
  11:33am Steve:

Re. the 'fuck the orange juice' quote - Zeke Manyika who was played earlier used to be the drummer in the Scottish indie band Orange Juice - quite a change of styles! - odd coincidence fact fans!
  11:37am Hugo:

Fairport Convention! Sandy Denny next? Or Maddy Prior? Or Shirley Collins?
  11:38am ?:

chris mantis waters
andreas thomopoulos???i am greek but never heard of him!i guess he lived in US cause we didnt had democracy in that period 1967-1974 in greece..nice song thanx!!!
  11:38am annie:

maddy!!! yea!
  11:40am Doug:

I began my crush on Maddy Prior when I was about twelve years old and it shows no sign of abating. No Maddy today, alas.
  11:40am carorock:

this fairpoint is awesome. thanks for the good tunes today...
  11:40am Parq:

I'm reminded of when Lee Hazelwood, addressing the crowd at a NY tribute show, somewhat famously snarled, "FUCK the hits!" And I third the Maddie request.
  11:41am Hugo:

Or Mr. Fox! Now, there's a hidden gem for ya!
  11:44am north guinea hills:

this is the last album by fairport that i'll listen to you..... oh, how the brewed some suck by the of the 70's-80's....., but early fairport is some of the best folk rock committed to vinyl..

once upon a time a did drum & bass remix of "a sailor's life"..... simpler times back then.....
  11:48am Hugo:

Liege and Lief - with Sandy still in the line-up, the definitive Fairport album for me - and Unhalfbricking a good no. 2.
  11:52am north guinea hills:

i have the first 6 fairport album, even the first few post- sandy denny albums were nice. then, my someone gave me one of their 80's albums and it was celtic new age crap (not to be confused w/ great celtic folk music, huge difference!).
  11:57am Jim in Brk:

Fridays are always the best days on WFMU. I listen all the time and me and my two roommates love Bryce's show. He is such a great DJ.
  11:59am ?:

thanx for the informations doug!!greetings from greek!
  2:32am Graham:
