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.

Listener comments!

  Thu. 5/28/09 9:03am George Eliot:

good morning trouble and all you wonderful fellow listeners..
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:03am trouble:

good morning, and welcome to fall?
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:05am Parq:

Yes, it is a lovely March day, isn't it?
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:06am George Eliot:

so warm, though. and i can hear the gleeful noises of the veggies that everyone planted..
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:06am listener mark:

good morning george
good morning trouble
good morning Parq
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:11am Oliver:

Good morning, starshine.
The earth says "chill-ho!"
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:14am George Eliot:

i had a pleasant experience this morning listening to my morning radio out of blue hill, maine; weru. the dj played a compilation disc which included laura cantrell..!! i immediantly turned her on to the fmu archives.. woohoo!
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:14am PMD:

Mornin' trouble and all. We'll see if my at home computer connection can handle all I'm asking it to do.
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:15am Parq:

Ollie's, post reminds me, has anyone else seen the revived "Hair"? Did anyone else think it was lame? I couldn't get over the fuss being made about something so trite and insubstantial.
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:16am George Eliot:

stage parq? did it include all the same songs?
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:19am texas scott:

hey everyone of youse...
is e really for estrogen?
are we in for a women 'power hour'?
i'll be lurking,
thanks ms.T
i have the buddha box on standby...
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:23am PMD:

This piece is making me feel like my computer can't handle it... OK, now it's better. But now I feel I have to get up and exercise.
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:29am Parq:

Georgi, yeah, all 30-odd of them. And that's part of my point; by me, they were completely forgettable. Except for the ones that were radio hits in the 60s, I couldn't name two of them on pain of waterboarding.
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:30am George Eliot:

hhmmm... did they get naked?
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:34am Parq:

Yes indeed

  Thu. 5/28/09 9:40am George Eliot:

interesting promotional pics, to be sure..was it all about he skin(which isn't bad, mind you) ?
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:44am Cecile:

I saw Hair in 1982 at the U of M and they CUT OUT THE NUDE SCENE. It was the dumbest thing I ever saw.
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:45am Cecile:

university of michigan.
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:45am Cecile:

e is for the estrogen on my HRT patch. whee!
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:49am still b/p:

Heard a funny note about current Woodstock-related movie. They had a little trouble finding suitable extras for nude roles, because today's common, um, grooming and mowing of revealed portions doesn't match the era.
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:49am Cecile:

  Thu. 5/28/09 9:50am chivito:

  Thu. 5/28/09 9:50am Webhamster Hemulen:

I like the version on "With A Twist", which was a popular album on WFMU last century.
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:51am Cecile:

can we get a thursday 2-play?

that's funny.
I love Demetri Martin, but actually any book or documentary you see on Woodstock is going to be weirder and way funnier.
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:51am George Eliot:

still bp; that cracks me up.. all those remakes and revivals just will not capture the feeling of the time that it was. what we felt..
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:53am trouble:

webmaster hemulen, I have been showing my students sita sings the blues and they love it!
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:54am Incorrect Name:

Good morning Trouble and fellow listeners.

I have to say that while Trouble's shows are usually excellent, today's show is perfectly suited for my current state of mind. Thanks!
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:55am George Eliot:

trouble, i tried watching that on "internet archives". it wouldn't play, but i got the drift. very nice indeed.
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:56am Cecile:

Freaks and Geeks, on the other hand, got my high school years scarily right.
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:57am Cecile:

it was the last time Judd Apatow had stong female characters right. i think it's because Paul Feig was writing it, sad to say.
  Thu. 5/28/09 9:59am Shana:

Good morning, Trouble!

So lucky that my birthday falls on a Thursday this year. There is no better gift.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:02am George Eliot:

happy birthday shana!! you are spot on about that!

on another note.. can anyone recommend a cocktail bar or fine restaurant that might be interested in serving a hand-crafted absinthe made upstate?
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:03am Lulu:

who needs Judd Apatow when you got a strong woman in Nicole Willis!!!
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:06am Cecile:

I'd like both. And for Judd to shape up a little! I love the dumb comedies, but wish there was a great crazy girl coming of age one. Because, ladies, we all have stories...
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:06am chris:

Anyone seen the Apatow series he did about college (i think it's called Undeclared)? I've never seen it and love Freaks and Geeks.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:09am Vivian:

Granted, not Apatow but if we are talking about strong female characters, what about Gilmore Girls?
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:09am Shana:

*I'm blushing*

Merci mille fois!
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:10am Cecile:

Undeclared is excellent.
I tried to watch that buttheytalksofastitwashardtoget
I do like both of the principals a lot though.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:12am Cecile:

gilmore girls, I mean
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:13am Brian:

Why, Shana! Happy Birthday. Greetings from Madison.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:13am GP:

Nice swing for a Thrusday morning..thanks Trouble...I'll be listening here in the corner today...busy.
Annie, if you are out there today thanks for the email..I'll let you know and appreciate you remembering me.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:14am 55rpm:

Looks like Apatow's next (Funny People) probably won't feature a female lead; it takes a semi-serious look at a comedian's life (played by Adam Sandler).
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:14am George Eliot:

i'll pass that on to her, gp. wink wink..
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:16am Will:

I love this soundtrack - good show Trouble!
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:17am dc pat:

blalglagluh....go Barca!

Great stuff trouble, thanks.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:17am texas scott:

this soundtrack ignites the imagination
for sure!
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:18am chris:

Don't think I've really liked any of Jud's movies so far...
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:20am PMD:

George, how about Moosewood in Ithaca? If they serve alcohol.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:20am George Eliot:

all those younger actors all look alike to me. like in dogma. i cannot tell those guys apart, but i like their various movies, except the action ones.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:22am sugarwolf:

I got the Freaks and Geeks sspecial yearbook edition at the Borders clearance.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:22am Shana:

Oh, yay! Brian in Madison. Hello there, old friend. The next time you come to Ann Arbor, let me know. I miss you!
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:22am George Eliot:

hhmmmm, i think she is only focusing on nyc and the region. i think she sends stuff too.. i'll tell her, though. i know she goes out there, but any tapas bar might be interested? her absinthe is fabulous, some of the best from what i hear
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:23am Cecile:

I thought 40 yr old virgin would have been perfect if they would have trimmed half an hour out of it. Most comedies flounder after 90 minutes.

sugarwolf, i have that as well. I bought it the day it came out, and have loaned it out more than anything in my collection.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:23am listener mark:

what the hell is going on over there?????
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:25am Cecile:

there has to be a mixologists board or something out there, annie. NYC is going crazy experimental with cocktails.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:27am George Eliot:

she was telling me there are bars that only serve cocktails.. wow.. very specialized..
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:28am Cecile:

you mean no beer or wine or straight shots?
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:32am drunk right now:

From what I understand, these establishements will serve a liquor "neat," but not beer or wine.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:34am dc pat:

NO BEER!!! Travesty!
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:36am Cecile:

well, hell.
then I'm screwed if I want a Shandy or a Black Velvet
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:37am Pieter:

Hello Trouble, hello all !
missed most of the show thanks to meetings today ...
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:38am George Eliot:

then there are places that serve only liqueurs.. way too complicated for me. glad she lives here and i have easy access.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:39am listener mark:

pet shop boys?
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:40am Cecile:

this sounds so much like Al Stewart in a way.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:40am trouble:

hi pieter, better late than never...and there is always the archives.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:41am dc pat:

Cecile: I was thinking the same thing! very year-of-the-caty
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:42am listener mark:

Yes, Pet Shop Boys.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:44am jeremy the listener:

good morning trouble and all
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:45am Brian:

"Il jete son cri plaintif."
I know *just* what he means.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:47am Carmichael:

Good morning, Trouble and trouble-ees. Glad to see a few other Todd admirers out there. Have you heard Arena? It's back to Guitar Hero role for him.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:47am dc pat:

I'll say it again: GO BARCA!
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:47am still b/p:

Tiata - shorthand for "there is always the archives." Can be delivered with triumphant & appreciative TA-DAAA punch -- TIATA! -- or resignedly, yadda-yadda fashion -- tiata, tiata, tiata.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:48am Cecile:

no, carm. Is it any good?
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:50am Carmichael:

Cecile, it reminds me of classic Utopia, or maybe the more rockin' stuff from Something/Anything. Refreshing, especially after the friggin' Tango album he did.
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:50am RichardRidden:

dig todays show... :)
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:51am Cecile:

that sounds promising!
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:53am Carmichael:

Ru-dy ..... a message to you .....
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:57am dc pat:

the song should have been "drunk out of my mind" -- you guys see this? Hilarious: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/bizarre/article2078595.ece
  Thu. 5/28/09 10:59am JCityJensen:

(((((NICE)))) the Duke Reid Group! Thanks Trouble!!!!!
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:02am Parq:

Was away from my desk for a while -- re 10:30 to 10:40 conversation, my neighborhood bar is very specialized. They will serve you only if you are actually conscious.
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:02am GP:

Is Jandek the guest singer on this ?
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:04am Robert L:

What an incredible music playing! Thanks Trouble, I´m at work, you ease my hours!
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:05am Cecile:

I actually really liked the ada moore cut.
It sounds like it's from the late 50s/early 60s. Like Dolphy/booker Little era. Any info on it, Trouble?
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:06am triish:

'ease my hours'

Add to that, 'aurally delight mine'
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:07am JCityJensen:

Oh theres my fat laces Adidas - under my coffee and next to my WOOFMOO shirt - sweet! see on the cardboard mat!
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:11am trouble:

ada moore recorded that record in 1954 , with arrangements by charles mingus.
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:11am Jonathan Steinke:

  Thu. 5/28/09 11:12am George Eliot:

it's been wonderful music this morning... and having hatch next is quite the treat!
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:12am Cecile:

thank you, trouble!
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:14am Robert L:

Thank you for the music, it´s a great time!
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:15am mb:

Thanks Trouble. Never new about that Tal Farlow date. I love the stuff he did with Red Norvo and Mingus.
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:19am GP:

Thanks for the Scientist Trouble...this is just what I needed to hear this morning..some great dub mon...
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:23am trouble:

now you all are making me blush, with all the hearty thank you's... thank you for listening!
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:23am Robert L:

Troubke, malcolm mclaren is THE malcolm mclaren ?
  Thu. 5/28/09 11:25am Carmichael:

  Thu. 5/28/09 11:25am dc pat:

  Thu. 5/28/09 11:31am George Eliot:

  Thu. 5/28/09 12:04pm Ben VC:

Hell yeah, Willie. Sing it. There was a cool piece on Sound Opinions (I think) that talked about how he came to Austin as this 'classically' trained Nashville singer and put those Austin hippies on the map.
  Fri. 5/29/09 12:13am rory:
