Listener comments!

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:01pm mb:

Woohoo! Im all in this week.
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:01pm Vicki:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:06pm young colleague:

Just so I know, are these UK or American customs/quarantine regulations?
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:06pm Vicki:

I think Ken and Andy just wore everyone out. Feel free to keep pasting record stores. In fact paste blogspot sites instead.
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:07pm Vicki:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:09pm German Shepherd Dog:

that isn't fair
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:10pm Ike:

That BMG end user licensing agreement as sung by a women's choir was comedy gold. I just discovered there's more stuff by that dude on the Free Music Archive. Cool.
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:11pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Say, is there a record store near me where I could go to purchase this recording?
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:12pm Vicki:

there's some Brian Joseph Davis on Beware The Blog too
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:12pm Vicki:

yes, this show could be all about where the hell you get this stuff :)
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:14pm G:

Was that the first *movement* :-P
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:15pm Vicki:

last week's show was called "three piece suite with several movements"
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:16pm irene:

nice stick work
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:18pm irene:

is that true??
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:19pm Vicki:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:20pm :):

ASDF is even better
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:21pm young colleague:

that is asinine. though i can't imagine such a thing passing.
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:21pm Vicki:

ASDF - oh that German group from the 80s
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:22pm zipthwung:

this filesharing will not stand
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:23pm :(:

i imagine it would;d be really hard to police, hence the resistane from ISPs.
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:23pm Vicki:

I haven't imagined a lot of things passing. I agree I can't imagine it. However, the fact that my country's government even proposed such a thing means at first they imagined it. And yes, everyone, I agree. They would never win
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:23pm ;):

nice typing by me. no, just was trying to make a bad keyboard joke.
Great show btw
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:25pm zipthwung:

they could pay filesharers to police themselves, because it takes one to know one.
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:28pm Vicki:

I just feel a sense of dismay that governments don't even see the first hurdle in an argument, enough to keep their mouths shut. They can't even do a proper bit of research - they only asked about 200 people what they thought
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:28pm secret sharer:

the horror, the horror
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:28pm texas scott:

and another "Artist " on the plinth...

ukeleles RULE!!!
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:28pm young colleague:

perhaps it just posturing; by just proposing it, a fear tactic.
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:29pm Vicki:

ukeleles DO rule, and so does getting annoyed sometimes, can make a good radio show! Oh - what are they doing on the plinth at the moment? Please do tell
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:31pm Vicki:

so, what youtube links do we have to share this week, listeners? musical/audio extraction for DO or DIY...
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:31pm texas scott:

messages to friends written on a chalkboard

i do love the anglican way!
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:32pm Vicki:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:34pm Vicki:

strange sounds outside the window here... gone midnight... and a near neighbour has taken to practicing little bursts of opera - 7am... 1am..., but she sounds like a theramin. Took months to work out it was a human
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:34pm wobbly:

this is a lot of silver machine
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:35pm Vicki:

well I've got one, I thought I'd use it. And an opera singing human theramin
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:36pm BSI:

Just tuned in... marvelous and creepy, mixing TG and HW, my twin musical obsession during school days...
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:36pm texas scott:

original big hurt was like a bomb going off...
thanks,again Vicki!
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:37pm Vicki:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:37pm MrFab:

Stick a mic out the window and record Theremin Lady!
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:37pm Vicki:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:43pm wobbly:

it is a tough one to google / vicki beat me to it

it wasn't me as much that revealed the author as mark ford as plain old google: http://www.drakechenault.org/special.html
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:44pm Vicki:

yes but you told me - and no one else seems to have identified it in my tiny world
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:44pm wobbly:

mark ford, hero

"now if I can find the right place, we might come up with a good segueway, so after, ha, uhm, HOURS..."
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:45pm Laura:

This educational snippet about music suited for the radio-, right now he's talking about overlap---what is it? where can I find it?
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:45pm Vicki:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:46pm Vicki:

("thinking that life has passed them by"?)
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:47pm pfapfap:

Wow, I love this clip! Tho' I suppose we're all of us fans of the how and why behind the what, which is part of what attracts us to this show...
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:47pm Vicki:

yes that too, ha ha
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:48pm Vicki:

it's nice that it's so simple, it makes it friendly - although it wasn't simple to do with tape
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:49pm gerardo:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:49pm zipthwung:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:51pm texas scott:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:52pm gerardo:

pitch controlled playing?. i had none, lol!
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:52pm Vicki:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:53pm wobbly:

vicki did you see someone did a youtube version of the time sweep? it's a different edit, not as smooth as Ford's but it's got images

I got the Mark Ford / Drake-Chenault interview from Bill Ingram, who is one of the three people I know who did updates of Ford's original 1955-1981 Sweep. I think it was part of the original 52 hour History of Rock and Roll documentary (of which the Time Sweep was the big ending)
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:53pm texas scott:

where my caucasians at????
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:53pm zip:

i used to play tapes on a tape recording device.
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:53pm Vicki:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:53pm Vicki:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:54pm gerardo:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:54pm zip:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:54pm texas scott:

  Wed. 9/9/09 7:56pm Vicki:

I must remember I'm doing a radio show, nearly forgot
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:56pm monster mashup:

something in the way she sits on the dock of the bay...
  Wed. 9/9/09 7:56pm wobbly:

"like a bridge over troubled water, whisper words of wisdom'
