A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane 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!

  9:03am jeremy, the listener:

greetings! i welcome thursday with open arms
  9:06am Bad Ronald:

Ola amigos!
  9:08am trouble:

bonjour friends!
  9:08am Parq:

As Groucho once put it, Jer, how late do you stay open?
  9:09am alan:

hi, i already woke up in lima peru-- thanks to bring that susuma yolota song-- sound`s great with the city weather
  9:16am glen cambell:

who knew i would live so long?
  9:18am seb:

mbv. beautiful.
good morning!
  9:19am plasmid:

who knew i would live so briefly?
  9:22am Negator:

Did my bloody valentine blow it or what? They should have been like VU and were with almost nothing. Where was their Elliot Roberts?
  9:23am Negator:

Could be one of my biggest disappointments of the 90's. Bigger than Cobain.
  9:24am seb:

but loveless is still there. you can always hear it negator. what did you miss?
  9:28am Adrian:

"should have been like VU". What, you mean selling seven records?
  9:28am annie:

good morning. very wet here.. rain and then some rain. missed you all yesterday..
  9:29am alan:

growing sounds like black dice-- is awesome!!
  9:31am joe the plumber:

i'd vote for mcbama anyday
  9:31am Negator:

Well, you see, I love them! At the time they blew my mind and I was older. Hard to do. 'Glider' is great too, but when I hear them now I realize how amazing they were. They missed their prime and everyone sort of lost for that. The great manager/producer was a famous hand-holder to the talented for many years, he should have been managing them! We'd have ten records. I mean like VU in that they made 6 or 7 records for us to enjoy. And VU has sold millions of records since.
  9:33am Negator:

Elliot Roberts great manager/producer
  9:36am jeremy, the listener:

You can leave in a taxi. If you can't get a taxi, you can leave in a huff. If that's too soon, you can leave in a minute and a huff.
  9:41am seb:

from what i've heard mbv kept on recording but did not release. maybe it's a myth. does anyone know anything about that?
  9:41am Adrian:

Negator, have you read "My Magpie Eyes…" the story of Creation? A great read and goes a long way to understanding how incredibly difficult it would hva been for any manager to work with Kevin Shields at the time.
  9:42am Adrian:

Hello Trouble, by the way.
  9:48am Ypsilantis:

LOVING Vivian Girls.
  9:50am trouble:

good morning adrian! have you gone to the francis bacon show at the tate for me yet?
  9:52am Bad Ronald:

Mmmmm Bacon!
  9:52am Negator:

Reading 'Shakey', Neil Young bio. Awesome. The hero there is Roberts. He kept Neil going when he wasn't going. Kept the dogs off! Thanks for the tip, Adrian I'll read that next. What Bacon at The Tate in London?! Oh, I'm jealous!
  9:55am Adrian:

No I haven't but I did go the the Viktor and Rolf exhibition at The Barbican. Twice. It was the best exhibition I have ever seen. Just beautiful. And we could do with as much beauty as we can get, right?
  9:56am trouble:

amen to that adrain!
  9:57am 55fps:

Trouble, will you do a Neil Hefti tribute today? Not only a great Basie composer/arranger but his '60's soundtracks are classics. RIP
  9:58am stingy d:

hi trouble,
did the obama dude win?
i vote for the troggs.
  10:01am kent goldings:

hey 55,
efd did a nice little hefti tribute a couple of nights ago with lots of batman covers. check it out if you haven't already!
  10:02am trouble:

sorry for the mispelling adrian. ouch. YES the obama dude won/will win!
  10:02am Adrian:

Don't worry about it Truoble.
  10:05am Yp:

  10:05am stingy d:

i went to china chalet
but ok... but also, 'for real?' and kind of, 'ok i see'.
  10:07am sugarwolf:

I never go to Rhinebeck because all my spare $$$ is going towards the record fair!
  10:08am bzul:

That Daisy Chain sounded like Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks back-up singers from the 70s doing a side on their own...dinnit?
  10:12am sugarwolf:

Hill Hold was a frequent school field trip spot. I haven't been there in 25 years probably.
  10:20am Yp:

This Maga Bo track gave me chills, nice nice stuff. His interview on Rupture was great...
  10:21am stingy d:

i listen to more rap than you can imagine... i think i have heard about 20 good rap songs on wfmu... ever... and too often i hear something and i'm like- oh this is cool i like this - and then someone decideds they are allowed to rap... messes me up man
  10:21am stingy d:

i'm elitist.
  10:25am stingy d:

whoah... amstramgram.... whoooah.... this is amazing
  10:27am grubbus:

I'm an eletist too! Wait can that be?
  10:29am ad:

tunes soo perfect thank you
  10:29am stingy d:

anything's possible grubby, sorry to be that guy trouble... you're always top shelf... i'm just crabby
  10:30am Negator:

jil gibson makes me want to hear the new Broadcast record! I think stingy's comment was more a comment on rap. It really has gone to shit. Ultramagnetic MC's not to be found! Serengeti's cool. I don't know rap is sort of dead cept De La Soul. RIP Dilla.
  10:31am dc pat:

I'm a 133tist
  10:31am fishmonkeystew:

Alright, Trouble. You are now playing one of my favorite Sun Ra tunes. Thank you!

Unmask the Batman!!
  10:32am upstairs:

taco bus at 1?
  10:34am Yp:

Stingy, you want to recommend some things?
  10:35am 55fps:

Thanks Trouble, Kent.
  10:35am Negator:

Sun Ra made a Batman soundtrack! I have the record. 1967 or something. Does anyone know of this Italian release? It's really cool. Sun's version of the Batman theme and everything!
  10:37am stingy d:

i reccomend "ugly people be quiet" by Cash Money and Marvelous
  10:37am kent goldings:

you mean this one, Negator?

  10:39am stingy d:

this sounds like the shaggs in a way
  10:44am Negator:

Kent that's the one. And that's also the way I found out that my record was Sun Ra. Stingy, I heard Cash Money on WFMU and like him. Will look into the Marvelous. Have you heard Ken's Bags of Money? Not a rapper but maybe he is.
  10:46am Laurie:

Ooh! Would-Be-Goods! My favorite Would-Be-Goods song is "Blue Beard"
  10:48am kent goldings:

wow, Negator! that must have been an exciting day when you realized this Batman record you already owned was actually Sun Ra!
  10:51am stingy d:

also i reccomend kool g rap.. and i also reccomend listening to ol dirty bastard records front to back... and i also reccomend scaramanga, and prodigy and one in every twelve lil wayne songs
  10:52am Negator:

vERY EXCITING! I'm an avid thrift store record shopper. Bought it not thinking anything about it. Took it home, listened and thought, "This is weird I really like this kid's Batman record. Couldn't find out anything about it and stuck it on the shelf. Two years later WFMU posted that blog and I thought "Hey!" Funny. I got lots of records like that.
  10:52am stingy d:

i also reccomend hating fat joe with every ounce of your being. and loving grand puba's "reel to reel" album
  10:53am Ike:

Wow, Apparat's remix of Johnny Cash is blasting open my mind. This after Lykke Li already reached inside my soul and toyed with the inner core of my being.
  10:54am kent goldings:

so how much did you pay for the Batman record at the thrift store? i saw it for i think 30 bucks at dusty groove the other day. you win!
  10:54am stingy d:

wc and maad circle curb servin
e-40 all the time
1 in 6 del the funkee homosapien songs
  10:56am trouble:

to toy with the inner core of your being: that's why i am here ike!
  10:57am Negator:

$1 at the thrift store. I got an original record release of Wizard of Oz sountrack worth $120. Lots of dialog from the film.
  10:57am GP:

stingy D remember Third Base?
How about Blackalicious?
D.J. Jazzy Jeff's new stuff is pretty good.
  10:58am Negator:

'A very Merry Moog Christmas' $120
  10:58am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  10:59am kent goldings:

thrift score!
  10:59am stingy d:

i remember third base
i always thougth blackalicious was how you say... hella weak
and i haven't listned to jeff in along time.. but i hear good thigns
  10:59am GP:

Dang...missed Lykke li ..good morning all.
  11:00am dc pat:

josephine foster rules
  11:00am Negator:

I found an original pressing of United States of America record a few weeks ago! Not as valuble as others, but wow! I shit my knickers...
  11:05am stingy d:

i also reccomend playing michael sembello's "mega-madness" 45 at 33 from the gremlins soundtrack
  11:05am Parq:

Neg, that's the advantage of thrift-shopping outside the NY/Boston/SF matrix, where the black-belts troll the bins on a daily basis. Here, you have as much chance of finding a real nugget as you do of cross-coutry skiing down Broadway on newly fallen snow.
  11:06am stingy d:

parq is right... but... it does happen
  11:10am stingy d:

people skiing down broadway that is.
  11:12am Negator:

Yeah, I live in Raleigh NC. I see two other dudes at the shops. They are dealers, though, I just hunt and keep. I have about 4000 records. Small by others collections. A local DJ is going to spin my records in front of my house when Obama wins at a house party. If he doesn't win, I'm taking my family to Canada.
  11:13am stingy d:

since reminding me of things is happening... it's a fine day reminded me of the beginning of true stories... the movie.
  11:14am grumpy:

Why do you call yourself Trouble?
  11:14am GP:

Canada recently banned the importation of cicular vinyl objects, so I'm afrais that you will have to leave your collection to me for safekeeping.
  11:14am dale:

why do you call yourself grumpy?
  11:16am GP:

OK, maybe leave some extra letters so that I can spell as well..
  11:16am dale:

my forsythias are blossoming. the black walnuts have buds. the wolly bears are trying to hide under the leaves. it's an odd fall.
  11:17am Negator:

Oh! I found a Sopwith Camel record the other day. Anybody know that band? '67
  11:17am dale:

I am an idiot
  11:17am ee:

Trouble- will I ever be able to find this record? This song is so good it makes me crazy.
  11:18am grumpy:

I was talking to Trouble
  11:19am Adrian:


  11:19am ee:

keep talking then. sorry.
  11:20am ee:

thanks Adrian
  11:20am jk:

wait...is it wed afternoon?
  11:21am seb:

i'm a-scared
  11:22am dc pat:

morricone rules more than josephine foster
  11:22am Laurie:

Ha, my thoughts exactly, jk. Is this some weird space-time continuum hiccup?
  11:22am jenniqua:

Ennio Morricone!! So appropriate for the MAVERICK's last stand. Love it! Which one do you think McCain is, the good, the bad or the ugly?
  11:23am dale:

thank you for posting as me. it's not transparent.

unbelievable trumpeting on the morricone.
  11:24am jk:

thought I'd lost a day and had to redo tuesday morning
  11:24am dc pat:

Obama = good, Palin = bad, McCain = fugly
  11:25am dale:

I have nothing so say
  11:25am GP:

Yo la ...this is a great song.....TROUBLE you know just what we need!
  11:26am stingy d:

obama = swellish
palin = nailin'
mccain = crazy cute grampy
biden = afterthought?
  11:26am Christian from New York:


Makin' my longest day of classes THAT much better!
  11:26am jenniqua:

hippies, hasch und flower power? Ya, ya und ya!
  11:26am stingy d:

wait is the album name really i am not afraid of you and will beat your ass?
  11:27am Christian from New York:

Sure is: http://iamnotafraidofyouandiwillbeatyourass.com/
  11:28am GP:


nailin Palin...love it.

10-4 on that stingy..great album name, no?
  11:30am Parq:

Sopwith Camel had a couple of novelty hits about Snoopy and the Red Baron, including the immortal "Snoopy's Christmas". I imagine the album is laden with filler, but it should be of the vaguely flower-power 60s garage variety, yeah?
  11:32am Parq:

And did I correctly hear Yo La mention Todd-O-Phonic Todd on that track?
  11:32am stingy d:

i dislike yo la tengo a little less because of that, but i mean, i'm a trinitario so them dudes could eat a dick
  11:34am seb:

i see. that's... quite eloquent of yours.
  11:35am bzul:

Parq: Royal Guardsmen mit der Snoopen musik hitz, no?
  11:35am stingy d:

i'm sane though, i'm a egg a lint duke
  11:36am kent goldings:

parq, i have always thought that sounded like a todd-o-phonic todd shoutout as well.
  11:36am Parq:

Oh nutz, right you are, bz. But I remember the name Sopwith Camel for some reason. Now this is gonna bug me . . .
  11:37am Sean Daily:

Love this Passion Pit song, Trouble.
  11:38am bzul:

Name of Snoopy's fighter plane and a different band from SF.
  11:40am linus van pelt:

i wish i was that guy
  11:43am stingy d:

can i also reccomend any wu-tang songs that involve running... and going to the store
  11:44am Adrian:

iTunes France doesn't let us Brits buy from it. I wanted to buy the Spleen Peter Pan track with CocoRosie. But no.
  11:50am Laurie:

FYI, I took my cats to the vet for their annual check-up this morning. FUN.
  11:51am Parq:

Ah, that's it! Sopwith Camel did "Hello Hello", feat. the memorable line "Would you like some of my tangerine / You know I'd never treat you mean".

  11:53am Adrian:

Ooh, I love this song. You played another earlier this year and I just had to buy the album.
  11:58am dale:

hello, hello:

  11:59am jenniqua:

Kevin Ayers?
  12:00pm dale:

this one is better actually, Dick Clark lead in.

  12:01pm Ike:

I must disagree with Stingy on Blackalicious. They're groovy.
