Listener comments!

  9:08am Unclear on the concept:

You could take the lyrics in this Mabel Scott song more than one way.
  9:13am texas scott:

different generation though.
  9:19am listener rey:

bebop wino is the name of a site I linked to from the "motherlode"
Excellent stuff on there. Thanks Doug, your compiled lists have been making my days/weeks!
  9:25am Confused WFMU Fan:

Why is the show called "Give the Drummer Some", but none of the songs have drum solo's?
  9:27am El Thatchmo...:


Will I see you @ OTB @ the usual time? The Olde English is on me today!
  9:28am G.:

Is (at least somewhat) Confused FMU Fan redundant? :-P

Cut the DJ Some (Slack)?
  9:29am Toby:

I'm going to the New Shea tonight!
  9:29am dc pat:

the dj is the drummer
  9:29am Drummer Some:

Hey Confused,
The show title derives from James Brown's ubiquitous utterance in performance. At the end of the night after everyone has had their chance to solo and hog the spotlight, the drummer gets his turn. The title is offered metaphorically for all the artists who get the spotlight on the airwaves.

How's dat?
  9:30am dc pat:

this silvertones is the most perfect morning rainy day music I've heard in a loooooong time.
  9:32am Confused WFMU Fan:

Drummer Some, Thanks a lot. That clears up everything. It was something I really wanted to understand
  9:32am Paul Sherratt:

dc pat,
It ain't bad on a gorgeous Spring afternoon, either ... ( p.m. in the a.m. )
  9:33am G.:

i imagine someday individual show archives will be tagged for optimal fits-with weather, add your own emoticon here
  9:40am gumby:

Doug you continue to outdo yourself. This Right on Rasta is awesome, as it this set, as is the show. Rockin' steady in the cube here.
  9:41am Paul Sherratt:

I'm just wondering if some of this gorgeous reggae set are Norwegian exports ?
  9:42am Hugo:

Fine Coxsone set, that one (but you knew I would say that)
  9:48am PMD:

Thanks for the clear explanation of your show name Doug. Hadn't read that before. Mornin' all. Off to a meeting.
  9:48am stingy d:

does anyone know the name of the album, by kevin ayers, that the song "this song isn't called anything" is on?

ps- good morning everyone i hope you are not in physical pain.
  9:49am dc pat:

yeah I think that was some Scratchy vocals
  9:57am annie:

thoroughly enjoying this music...
  9:59am dc pat:

What More Can I Say? at least that's what the internets says
  10:04am Cecile:

mornin' all ya'll
  10:04am stingy d:

true. ok, well, ok. anyhow... i have to learn a new mixer today. what a pain, but should be awesome.
  10:05am Cecile:

what new mixer? Club soda? Quinine water? Jones Orange Soda?
  10:06am dc pat:

I have to learn a new software program I care absolutely nothing about--should suck dogs.
  10:07am stingy d:

some mixer korg makes with a kaoss pad built in
  10:08am Cecile:

Grapefruit juice? Red Bull?
  10:08am stingy d:

a dj mixer wise guy!
  10:09am Drummer Some:

If you dig the talkover tune Mathar, my latest blog post on the WFMU blog has a link to a download of an album with it. Here is the blog post:
  10:10am Cecile:

I'm not a guy today. Not today.
what is a kaoss pad? that sounds cool
  10:13am Hugo:

For newer Bollywood, check out A.R.Rahman. It turns out that he won two Academy Awards this year, but he's been at it for many years.

Yep, I had to seek out the cd to get the "Mathar" tune. A classic.
  10:14am stingy d:

well, that's the question...but basically it's a dj mxer with this pad that is touch sensitive, and there are 100 effects. but i have never used a kaoss pad.. but i really hate that word when it's written that way.
  10:17am Cecile:

So you can make scratch and bew-bew-bew FX?

that sounds cool
  10:19am stingy d:

yes i will now have the bew bew bew element! it really does soundcool, i am going to write "bew bew bew" over "kaoss", aaahhhhh what a relief thank ou so much cecile
  10:19am annie:

oh man, bew,bew,bew.... i want that!!
  10:20am stingy d:

i have bewbewbew
  10:21am stingy d:

we could make some decent bank on a crumby effects thing if we called it the bew-bew-bew machine or box or something like that.
  10:25am still b/p:

KAOS = individual enemy of Stardust the Super Wizard and planet earth.
KAOS = organizational enemy of Maxwell Smart and CONTROL
KAOSS = unfamiliar prospective enemy or ally of stingy d
  10:26am Cecile:

I need to see a pic of that.

I would totally buy that and I could use it with my GarageBand to make Corn Weenie remixes.
  10:26am Joe:

Doug, Mongo's "In-a-Gadda-da-Vida" is stunning.
  10:27am Cecile:

ok, Doug, where can I find this Mongo?
  10:28am annie:

cecile, just got your email... :) slow puter here and not mine so diff schedule totally on checking mail
  10:29am Cecile:

no problema.

Doug, I can haz Santana?
  10:29am Hugo:

Some oblique references to "Sunshine of your love" there ...
  10:33am tim:

What does "out of phase" mean?
  10:37am Carmichael:

Good morning, Doug and everyone. Tim, in relation to what?
  10:38am Drummer Some:

Out oh phase means that in a stereo recording, either the left or right channel has become inverted. Recording engineers sometimes screw this up, but it is prevalent with MP3 downloads with people using those USB turntables. If you hook up the cables wrong the track will be out of phase. It's is almost possible to hear the problem with an OoP recording. Though when you play it through a device that splits the stereo tracks, like the audio console at a radio station, the track becomes unlistenable.
  10:41am Parq:

Cecile (or anyone else who knows), is there a good tutorial for Garage Band? I have some downtime coming up late this spring, and would like to mess around with it.
  10:42am Carmichael:

Doug, we used to purposely do it with our turntables to drop out vocals on LPs. We would invert two of the four tiny wires at the back of the needle cartridge to achieve the effect. It was secret knowledge in those days, and if you could do it you were considered to be an alchemist.

I used (and still use) a Technics SL-Q3.
  10:44am Cecile:

the apple site has some ideas, and the help keys are good, but srly, you just need to have a project and mess around with it. I have a hard time using it unless i have a clear idea in mind. And, if you want, you can email me and I can give you some tips.
  10:46am Drummer Some:

Here is a link to a download of the Mongo Santamaria:

  10:48am Cecile:

thank you, Doug! Giver of all that is good.
  10:51am Parq:

Charm, a large number of realy funny parodies were produced that way by Boston's WBCN in the late 70s. Many of them were done for the noon "lunch" spot and involved the word, usually substituted for "love. EG: "Lunch is like oxygen/ You get to much you get fat thighs . . . "
  10:52am Parq:

"too" much . . .
  10:55am still b/p:

I was thinking about those very same way-back bits on 'BCN this week when comment talk was all about the hunger and the lunch to come.
  10:58am Parq:

b/p, to this day, I still make a mental party game of substituting "lunch" for "love" in songs and seeing if I can get it to go anywhere.
  10:59am Cecile:

When we were in australia for a year as kids, we used to like to sub "sausage roll" for rock 'n' roll.
So, "it's a long way to the shop if you want a sausage roll"
  10:59am Hugo:

Doug, as you are a man about the blogs, I thought I should mention that a live Human Arts Ensemble recording from 1978 has turned up in the contributions section of the IS blog. I haven't heard it myself yet, but should be interesting. Lotsa interesting stuff in that section. I should probably get around to making proper posts out of it.
  10:59am annie:

i've always enjoyed adding "in bed" to fortune cookies
  11:03am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  11:05am Carmichael:

I just did that last night, Annie ....
  11:06am Drummer Some:

The Human Arts Ens. track I played probably came from the comments of the IS blog!
  11:06am Cecile:

in bed, carm?
  11:06am Cecile:

need the link to that HA track, folks. unless it was part of this week's post, Doug.
  11:11am Carmichael:

  11:12am Cecile:

oh, unavailable. Too bad.
  11:13am tim:

Thanks for the explanation on out of phase. It seems like an either/or thing, so maybe a "dedicated" out of phase turntable is the answer, as per Mrs. Carmichael above.
  11:16am Carmichael:

Thanks for the gender change, Tim ... :-)
  11:18am still b/p:

Parq, I recall them also playing with any non-love opportunity that allowed a lunch or lunch-food substitution -- e.g. Cars, Let the Lunch Times Roll. And yes, I still do it, too. (btw - tangent time: remember the Cars demo tape they used to play? The 2 tons of production bizness on the subsequent first album was off-puttingly overdressed by comparison. Saw 'em play the Rat for a few bucks.)
  11:19am Cecile:

hee hee hee hee hee hee hee
  11:19am Glenn L:

Carmichael's gender is 180 degrees out of phase.
  11:20am Hugo:

Cecile, this is the one:

at the top of the list.

The one I was thinking of is a different recording of the same tune.

The Frank Wright is easier ... ahem ...
  11:21am Cecile:

thanks, Hugo!!!
  11:23am Carmichael:

Here's another, Cecile:

$35.00. Not bad ...
  11:25am Parq:

b/p, do you remember the 1979 strike? The deejays got into a fracass with Klee Dobra and walked off, to be replaced by lame, generic announcers (the kind one currently finds on all commercial and most non-commercial radio, but that's another rant). They did a one-day outlaw broadcast via the Boston College station, for which they transformed Zevon's "Nighttime in the Switching Yard" into "Lunchtime on the Picket Line".

Carm, Annie, 'Cile, a young friend of ours is very much into tagging everything she hears with "That's what she said!"
  11:25am annie:

technically, if you have not signed up for benefits, you are not counted... that's why the numbers never make sense.
  11:25am Hugo:

Cecile, if you do a search of that blog, you'll find lots more Human Arts Ensemble.
  11:27am Cecile:

I have the BLack Saint LP and the Arista freedom, and the Funky Donkey reissue. Although that live one isn't all that bad for vintage rare jazz vinyl...
  11:27am Cecile:

good for her, Parq. heh.
  11:31am Hugo:

Both the Aristas are very fine.

And the Frank Wright is right here:
  11:33am Carmichael:

You're correct, Annie. Unemployment levels are counted by the number of people who file for a claim each week. That's how the govt *trends* the rate as either rising or falling. The theory is that, when one is laid off, he or she will immediately file. That's not entirely true, so the numbers aren't entirely accurate. And when your benefits run out, you're dropped from the roles, even if you didn't get a job.

But I can't think of a better way to count *people without jobs*.
  11:35am annie:

yup charmichael.
  11:38am still b/p:

Parq - I was just gone from the area by '79, to areas stunningly bereft of anything close in broadcast choices, with friends updating me for a couple yrs. that "'BCN stinks now." Early & mid-70s had some really good eclectic free-form DJs/shows. Would love to peruse old playlists if they exist. Was lamenting the long, long lack of such exposure/accompaniment when -- miracolo! -- I found FMU.
  11:47am Mark:

Good morning Doug... Sounding great (as usual!). For those interested in Mr. Reece, there is a nice overview/celebration from Ben Young available online @ <>.
  11:48am Drummer Some:

Thanks for sharing that Dizzy Reece tribute info with the gang!
  11:53am Cecile:

hey Doug, that Mickey Lolich song sound like it would be a good addition to the Joe Belock baseball canon...
  11:55am annie:

doug, the show has been great, sorry i haven't said alot, i been preoccupied.. i'll be so happy to get my old computer back.
  7:26pm miketp:

love the sinatra one has loved and lost like frank has loved and lost. hahahahaha spinal tap dont look now but ol blue balls is back in town. in the wee small hours is a fine sinatra piece too. rip lou the duck
