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. 7/30/09 9:04am Adrian in London:

Hello from rainy Britain, where the Met Office has had to offically revise its forecast that we would have, and I quote: "a barbecue summer." What with it pouring down for 40 days and 40 nights.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:07am trouble:

good morning adrian, and everyone else in intermittent rainy lands
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:07am gumby:

It's OK Adrian
It's turning into London here. Coldest July in NYC history and it rains damn near everyday.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:08am PMD:

Morning Trouble, and all.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:09am Barry:

I remember writing (then) that we had no summer in Portland OR last year, well - high tues 101, high yesterday 105, high today 95 - it's 6 AM and its 77 degrees - this year we got all the summer you could want.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:32am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

No rain in DC, where your house can burn down because there is no pressure in the hydrants.


  Thu. 7/30/09 9:37am Chris:

Where did that Wooden Shjips track come from? I didn't catch that.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:37am gumby:

Yeah I see the weather channel guy is hanging out in Portland. If those guys or girls come to your town it's bad news.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:39am Leslie:

Yesterday's papers: More an anti-monogamy song, (though with little regard for his soon to be ex-partner)
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:39am trouble:

chris, i don't know where it comes from originally. i got it off the web. look at fillessourires.blogspot.com
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:41am Trapper:

Whence comes this Hope Sandoval track? She's the only harmonica player I enjoy.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:41am PMD:

Gumby, that is so true! Never thought of it that way.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:45am Barry:

Brown lawns in Portland - the end of life as we know it.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:46am Chris:

Thanks sooooo much for 'Letter Never Sent,' Trouble. This has made my day. You're a sweetheart!!!
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:50am still b/p:

In much of the country, the very clouds weep with sorrow at Obama's reported beer choice today: Bud Light.
The President of Hope, maybe, but not of much Hop.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:50am The first chris:

Cool, I'm sort of a Wooden Shjips completist. Thanks.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:51am dale:

barry, in the northeast it's mow every 5 days or else you'll have huge thick windrows of grass to rake up (the grass is growing to fast for the mulcher to be much use). and if you don't rake the grass roots die and weeds take its place. i always want to xeriscape (sp?), but I also don't want more deerticks than i pick off already.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:52am trouble:

through the devil softly is the new hope sandoval and the warm inventions release, due out in september
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:52am gumby:

stillb/p hope not hop/ love it!
Yeah I was laughing at the beer thing, neither of the guys from Boston picked Sam Adams, you'd think th epolitician would know better. Then Obama picks the Belgian light. What is this country coming to?
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:54am Jonathan Steinke:

In other news, the condensation on bottles of Schlafly Beer are reported to actually be tears.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:54am Jonathan Steinke:

That's "is reported"...
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:55am annie:

ok, i made it, been having a very odd week.. morning all!!
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:55am Cecile:

We have had little summer here in Minnnapolis. I love it, but I'm sure the tomatoes don't.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:55am still b/p:

Our hope is for a better post-Bush and post-Busch world.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:57am dale:

i love the seldom heard album version of 'love is like oxygen'
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:57am Cecile:

Obama is a perpetual dieter. Bud Light is lower in calories, and perhaps it was not a "cheat" day.
  Thu. 7/30/09 9:58am annie:

cecile, i went out to see the garden this morning after that heavy rain last night.. i see very healthy and happy assorted green things, no peppers at all to speak of.. and harvested the garlic .. 59 grew ... all varying sizes, due to wet soil.. good news is that i have alot of pvc left over from the well pump being installed.. hoop houses, i hoop!!
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:00am gumby:

happenin' very best track here. Where are they from?
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:01am dale:

annie, i picked up a bunch of old tlarge riple track storm windows for $5 each and plan to build a little hot house for next year.I can't defeat the deer or rabits or woodchucks or slugs or tomato hornworms or verticillium rot or....
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:02am Cecile:

Peppers like it a little drier I think.
Did you plant tomatoes, how are they doing?
And do you haz water again?
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:02am dale:

...large triple track.....
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:03am trouble:

the very best are here:
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:04am color matters:

Guinness for strength!
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:05am annie:

dale, i found eight sweet celery plants amongst the wormwoods. planted them... the rabbits found them.. bummer. cecile, i have tomatoes, but they are still short and not thriving.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:08am Cecile:

You know, color, Guineess is a good, low-calorie option. Lower calories than anything but light beer.

(former perpetual dieter)
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:09am Cecile:

See, tomatoes need wet, hot weather with big blasts of dry days. I'm kind of glad I didn't plant this year.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:10am Cecile:

we had to pass on the red-skinned potatoes.
We've OD'd on them
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:11am annie:

i'm sure my soil is still at a very low temperature.. i'm sad... .. and the potatoes got the blight.. harvested tiny little fingerlings this week,
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:12am gumby:

What I loved about the early REM was the Stipe/Mills harmonic. They could have been singin' "f you and your mother too" amd it wouldn't have mattered because the sound was just so tantalizing.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:13am still b/p:

Every cornfield I see 'round here is a sorry crop of late, short 'n wimpy -- make a feeble fire. How's the corn? Weenie...really, really. We'll see what shows at the farmers market.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:13am gumby:

The Jayhawks and The Band had that thing too.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:17am annie:

corn fields around here are very sad. some are flourishing, but most sit sparse and pathetic. they've asked for an emergency situation..
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:17am beaker:

Thanks for playing that Hazlewood song. I did not know he had released that album.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:20am PMD:

You're welcome. (I come from RI)
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:20am Cecile:

there has been some nice corn out of Wisconsin. Little ears, but very flavorful.

This is the time, if you have blueberries, wild or cultivated, to rejoice. They love this weather.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:20am gumby:

This food list song is making me hungry!
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:21am GP:

This sounds like Sandy from SpongeBob singing.

I need to wake up
Hi Trouble, et al.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:22am Joe Steele:

I've heard good things about Jersey corn this year. I can't believe its actually something I've heard but it is.

Headed to the Montclair Farmers Market on Saturday to find more things to grow along my apartment window sill.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:22am PMD:

Annie, hi! My tomatoes in the pot and not happy, and ony produced a few small tomatoes. But the one in the plot of land went wild and I've gotten about 5 so far. Rhubarb never turned red, alas. Got one smalll pepper. Something attacked/is attacking my cucumber - I got one warped on and trying to get more.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:24am Patrick:

yo trouble! have you seen thr Black Acid Co-Op show at deitch projects yet? i saw the artist give a talk up here on monday, good looking stuff. any way its been sunny and humid up here the last few days.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:29am Carmichael:

Good morning Trouble and fellow ear users.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:30am Lawrence:

Trouble, thanks for playing that REM song. Hearing it on FMU was like hearing it for the first time, and reminded me why I worshiped them 25 years ago. It sounded amazing. (Probably the first and last time I'll hear REM on FMU, right?) Anyway, I've been listening to you for about 15 years--thanks for making Thursday mornings so much fun.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:32am GP:

I could listen to Texas Swing all day ( even though I know that is not going to happen).
Thanks for the McKinney Sisters Trouble.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:32am annie:

cecile, this wet climate out here has produced a very hospitable climate for fungus on the blueberries in maine.. they may have to burn the crop...
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:35am Lulu:

....nothing is sweeter than the Modern World with Trouble!
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:36am Cecile:

oh jeez
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:36am annie:

lulu, concurrence here. goes very well with that second cuppa!!
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:37am Carmichael:

It's a Sisters setlist. Just to throw everyone off, you could spin some Del Rubio Triplets.

And I'm a Neville Brothers completist. You're spot on today, Trouble!
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:37am trouble:

hey patrick! i'll chek that show out.
super thanks to lulu and lawrence for the kind words!!
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:38am GP:

You sure you are not broadcasting from Southern Louisiana today...this set puts me back on the bayou!
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:39am sugarwolf:

local sweet corn is the best, I could eat it every day
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:40am dale:

i did manage to pick a lot of wild black raspberries this year and the wild blackberries are just coming in. the challenge is sharing with the birds.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:40am Cecile:

I love black orpheus, I have the soundtrack. Beautiful and clamorous
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:41am Carmichael:

Wrap the sweet corn in foil with olive oil, garlic, tabasco and parmesan. Throw it on the grill next to your chicken. Mmmmm
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:42am annie:

dale, my wild raspberries only produced enough to munch on while walking the dog, who loves any berry. the balckberry crop will be better than the blueberry crop.
carm, what a great recipe!!!
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:44am Laurie:

Oh, hey, thanks for playing my husband Jarvis.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:44am Aliza:

Picked a ton of red potatoes and green beans from an empty Baltimore lot farm yesterday. Thanks for talking about the movement!
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:51am dale:

trouble, don't know if you get NJN but they had a nice prgram called 'natural history of the chicken'. it's back from around 2001 i think. it imbued so much personality to them that i question eating chicken again.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:54am trouble:

that sounds great dale. i'll look for it.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:55am Cecile:

This is the camille from Ratatouille!
Does she have a full record out? This is great.
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:57am trouble:

oh do you mean that she did songs in the soundtrack for that movie? sure she has a few albums and is huge in france!
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:58am Cecile:

Yes, she sang the theme song. It's great!

which one would you start with?
  Thu. 7/30/09 10:59am Cecile:

Man, I loved Scritti around Songs to Remember. Wood Beez album not so much
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:02am sugarwolf:

my grandma rented the 'natural history of the chicken' dvd from the library and loved it.
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:03am v k:

truly, truly love your show - thanks Trouble
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:04am trouble:

fabulous sugarwolf. i will search it out. cecille look hear and listen:http://www.cduniverse.com/search/xx/music/artist/Camille/a/Camille.htm
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:04am GP:

Trouble, you are freaking me out. I was just thinking about how Ineeded to hear some Macy Gray ( That probably isn't going to occur on FMU) so Jaqee is the next best thing....awesome. Thank you.
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:07am Cecile:

That's a great song, Trouble. I must disagree.

I don't like SP's anarchist stuff.
I love the soulful Songs to Remember period.
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:08am Cecile:

In fact, I re-bought Songs just as few months ago.

And thanks for the link!
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:10am Cecile:

OMG. I remember seeing Osibisa on the Marty Feldman show in the early 70s...
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:11am Ne-guh-tor:

I know, Trouble! Back in the day I loved Cupid and Psyche (and still do). I had no idea of SP past efforts in '84 and marveled over the unique almost Micheal Jackson quality of these faux R&B songs. His transition is sort of like Paul Weller (you're man) to Style council. You would not believe the flack I caught from my Iron Maiden listening friends!
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:13am Carmichael:

I saw Osibisa live many moons ago in Oakland CA, with Tower of Power and 3 or 4 other soul/funk bands. What memories I forgot I had ....
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:13am ?:

did Osibisa use the same guy who did the album covers for Yes?
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:14am Cecile:

Yes, Roger Dean did their artwork.
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:16am dale:

i have the 12" 45 rpm single of SP's 'Aboslute' in my collection. can't imagine i'd ever listen to it again (along with rebbe jackson's 'centipede')...some things don't hold up other than for nostalgia.
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:22am Cecile:

I love Faithless, it's an incredible trainwreck of 80s production, and yet really moving.
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:26am Marshall Stacks:

The Marty Feldman Show - that brings back memories. It ran in the summer, right?
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:30am Cecile:

That's right! Summer of 71 or 72...I thnk.
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:34am jeremy the listener:

she could be covered with a rash, as long as she's got cash. that's awesome
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:35am jeremy the listener:

is this a cover of the cramps? or did the cramps cover this??
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:36am Ike:

To go back to produce: There were really awesome NJ blueberries at the Stop & Shop a couple of weeks ago. Haven't gone back there, but another market had MICHIGAN blueberries the other day -- is NJ blueberry season over already?! Sure doesn't last long!

Wow, that Diplo and Santigold dub was killer!
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:37am doug from dc:

Found a Marty Feldman Show clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7CpkzJU9kA
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:39am PJH:

Like Scritti? "White Bread Black Beer" is great.
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:39am Marshall Stacks:

The Marty Feldman Show featured short skits by a group of British comedians with what was apparently a very memorable name. I remembered the name when the local PBS station started showing their show a year or two later, and made all of my friends watch. Thus were Monty Python fans made.

@jeremy: The Cramps covered Hasil Adkins.
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:40am jeremy the listener:

cool thanks.
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:42am ?:

c'mon, Trouble, there has to be at least one Yes song you like. Not even the first album?
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:49am Carmichael:

Looks like you're alone, ? :-)
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:52am ?:

ouch. I will just keep wearing my black jeans and white high-top sneakers, with feathered hairdo, thank you very much.
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:53am Ike:

Agreed, Carm. ;)

Why always such intense nostalgia for washed-up crummy famous rockers of yesteryear in FMU's comments, but less discussion of great new music?
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:54am doug from dc:

I grinned at the total obscurity of a Norwegian Folk Jazz 1971-1977 comp, but this is very nice.
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:56am Cecile:

Ike, I love how you NEVER EVER resort to generalities or BROAD SWEEPING AND VAGUELY INSULTING statements in the comments board.
  Thu. 7/30/09 11:59am Ike:

Don't worry, I'm already being nibbled on by '90s nostalgia, so soon I'll be right there with you Cecile, just focused on a different decade than you! Now, where did I put those Lush and Swervedriver CDs?!? ;) ;) :)
  Thu. 7/30/09 12:01pm Cecile:

I'm going to go away now. Not going to swallow the bait.
  Thu. 7/30/09 12:01pm doug from dc:

Ike, Lush and Swervedriver are all well and good, but for me it's been Loop and Slowdive. Try not to be so vehement in bashing prog. I'm over it, myself, but prog does tend to be the pinata of rock.
  Thu. 7/30/09 2:11pm Sylvain:

"Nu au soleil" is a protest action from BB. Beware, walk away!
