Paula who? Just curious.
  9:11am Paul Sherratt:

Stoke thanks goodness for Paula !

  9:11am Parq:

Oh, wait, it's a label, right? Shut up, Parq, go drink more coffee ...
  9:15am north guinea hills:

Funny seeing all of the Yankee fans lining up for the parade in midtown at 8am when it won't make it up here until later in the afternoon.

Morning Doug! Morning y'all!
  9:19am Parq:

By the way, why do we say a record's "on the such-and-such label"? Isn't the label on the record?
  9:20am Drummer Some:

G'morning all!
Some amazing stuff coming up. Chris in SA, keep ears peeled for some stunning Kippie Moeketsi!

And DON'T get me started about the Yankee parade. (Shit! I'm started.)
  9:22am Hugo:

The Blind Boys of Alabama came to town yesterday and here we have a gospel set on FMU. Providence, innit?
  9:22am seang:

chips, chicken, banana split!
  9:23am cecile:

Good morning.
  9:28am Paul Sherratt:

>>Providence, innit?
hugo, I've been there. Scary by night.
Hang on that was Provincetown ..
  9:30am still b/p:

Do you have "Jesus Will Swarm The Yankee Dugout With Vipers and Frenzied Dingos and Tax Auditors and Lift the Nation To Comfort and Glory"?
  9:31am a fan:

resistance is futile. don't be a spoilsport
  9:31am Cecile:

YES. "Rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for US Steel" HL Menken.

still b/p I want to hear that one, too.
  9:32am jk:

thanks Doug, it's nice to hear a level head about the yankees
  9:32am a fan:

level heads are flat
  9:33am another fan:

Sore losers ...
  9:34am Hugo:

Provincetown.That's a name or a description?
  9:35am Cecile:

I want a team with good mustaches again. Like the '74 As.
  9:36am Drummer Some:

I feel bad for the dingos.

And, yes, sore as hell.
  9:37am texas scott:

I see ya hittin' the bottle early today,Doug.

don't let the damn yanks get to you.
it ain't worth it.
  9:38am still b/p:

Tweddle sounds a might like Jeff Bridges a'singin'.
  9:38am north guinea hills:

Rollie Fingers FTW!
  9:40am Drummer Some:

The Big Lebowski lives!
  9:42am Paul Sherratt:

It's a place, hugo. Cape Cod, way.
This place is recommended for an early-start breakfast
  9:42am gumby:

I think baseball would be greatly improved if there was a time limit of 3 seconds between pitches and batters.
  9:46am Cecile:

ngh, you know it!
And Catfish Hunter and the great chops/stache combo
  9:47am gumby:

Prayin', then drunkin' hillbillies! Isn't that vicey versa
  9:48am Hugo:

Portuguese bakery. That reminds me, I haven't made it to Portugal yet, but working on it. It's only next door to Spain, innit?
  9:49am Paul Sherratt:

Now doesn't that lovely Tom House just always hit the spot ?
  9:50am Cecile:

You know how baseball would be improved? Having the American Gladiators shoot nerf ball at them from a cannon when things get slow. Aw! They hit you? Yer out!
  9:52am Paul Sherratt:

>>>>>It's only next door to Spain, innit?

Apparently so, hugo, but if you ever watch the weather forecast on Spanish tv it doesn't seem to exist at all ! Just a grey area ..
  9:52am ?:

goose gossage
  9:55am annie:

i'm here for another hour.. nice to see you all.
  9:56am Paul Sherratt:

The artist from Catalunya ?
  9:56am Hugo:

Probably the same thing in Portugal. Is it possible to watch Spanish TV for more than five minutes at a time? They seem to spin hour-long talk shows out of the most trivial celebrity news ...
  9:58am whiskerpedia:

Y El Tiante!
  9:59am PMD:

Cecile.. I love love love that idea!
Hi all..
  9:59am jk:

the only team in professional sports is the athletes. they all always win.
  10:00am Cecile:

hi, PMD and annie! and everyone
  10:00am listener jeff:

the yankees are my burden too even though I am in New Mexico
  10:04am Paul Sherratt:

Ocora ! The saving grace of a nation <wink>
  10:06am Cecile:

The only athletes I like are the Incredible Diving Dogs...and those dachshunds in the weiner dog races.
  10:07am Hugo:

Speaking of TV, one of the stranger TV experiences was watching Philippino TV in Manila where they would switch back and forth between English and Tagalog all the time, reducing your comprehension to about 50 per cent. Not that it mattered much.
  10:10am texas scott:

I'm with you,Cecile.
I do favor the monkey that rides the border collie.
  10:14am Cecile:

Nice, texas scott!
I've been addicted to Superfetch, this dog trick training show. Maybe someone can get Zak the trainer to teach Olive how to do a radio show...?
  10:16am still b/p:

Well, bless his little monkey heart and chaps....but I hope Whiplash rides a hell of a lot better than his promoters write.
  10:18am texas scott:

okay,one more and I'll drop it.
  10:20am Cecile:

Oh, my!
  10:20am Cecile:

Hegemony Cricket
  10:22am PMD:

Cecile - have you ever watched sheep herding trials? Just wondering, since you seem to like the dog things.
Poor monkey, btw.
  10:24am Paul Sherratt:

Blimey ! Now a dog with a monkey on its back ...
  10:24am Cecile:

I have watched sheep herding demos.
Those border collies are astounding - the crouch and the "eye"!
  10:26am Carmichael:

Good morning, everyone. Man, I love Fridays.
  10:27am texas scott:

Friday...the HAPPIEST day of the week!
  10:27am jgiles:

hey, did not get your email address to send the boohooy request.

  10:28am north guinea hills:

I'm not sure about bul hooey opinions, but i could stand to hear more bull honky opinions. (haven't heard that term since I was 10.)
  10:28am trs:

gee, Doug, do you force some people to read the entire msgs you send out? Maybe my (oh so foreign) country and its laws protect me from such enforced readings. Ha.
  10:29am Drummer Some:

Here tis: doug (at) wfmu (dot) org
  10:30am Happy Rainbow Wig Spider:

Say's yeah!
  10:31am jgiles:

Say, thanks, Mr. DrummerSomeMan,
  10:32am Here!:

A) "The dithering uncertainty of the so-called, and illegitimate, commander-in-chief, has put our servicepeople in a different kind of harm's way. The pressure pushed one good soldier over the edge."

B) "You saw this guy's name, right? C'mon, people, some kind of screening for certain nationalities and names has to be put in place for our own practical safety. Doing otherwise isn't about sensitivity and's sticking your head in the sand."
  10:32am annie:

lunch yet???
  10:32am still b/p:

The Crouch & The Eye = GNFA Pub
  10:33am Drummer Some:

I'm shocked, SHOCKED, that your local authorities aren't enforcing the "must read" ordinance. I shall ring the constabulary pronto!
  10:35am texas scott:

nice,annie.i'm with ya on that one!
  10:36am ken:

what a groove.
  10:37am trs:

My eyes ! My yees !!
  10:40am Cecile:

I need a pinoy mocha with booze in it right now. I haz a trbl code id by dose.
  10:42am Carmichael:

Cecile, try something minty or mentholy. Warm Mint Julep??
  10:43am LizGig:

Cecile, my manager swears by a pint of hot brandy and Vicks rub on your feet under a pair of socks.
  10:47am texas scott:

hey,annie.ever tried making this?

nice tunes,Sir Doug of boohooy !
  10:47am Carmichael:

Boy, these Polish guys remind me of Carson's band: Eddie Shaughessy, Tommy Newsomb and the other swingin' cats.
  10:48am Charles:

Alright, I won't scoff at Polish jazz records anymore. I'm liking this.
  10:49am Cecile:

I'm drinking coffee, will move to tea, and plan on having tea and brandy tonight...
  10:49am Carmichael:

Now you're talking my language, Scott!
  10:52am Drummer Some:

Your Shaughnessy comparison is SO right on!
  10:53am Cecile:

mead, I'm not so hot on. Usually too sweet.
  10:53am Parq:

It's in the mid 40s in NY today -- the mid 40s! -- and everyone in my office is acting like the next Ice Age has arrived.
  10:54am Carmichael:

Mead gets the blood flowing just before battle.
  10:54am annie:

i have a small bottle of home-made peach brandy .. later tonight, yes..
  10:56am trs:

tea and brandy? pekoe + __ ?

woolly days are here again
  10:57am Cecile:

I'll toast you from afar, Annie!

Okay, if I'm this lively at 101, I want to live forever:|main|dl4|link5|
  10:58am Cecile:

pekoe + poire William?
  10:59am Drummer Some:

No matter where this conversation begins, it always gets around to the beverages.
  11:02am Cecile:

Doug, we just get tipsy on the music on your show...! At least for right now...
  11:04am trs:

thanks Cecile - I'll have to try and experiment, too. Moroccan green is my tea of late.
  11:05am Jay H.:

Is Demon's Dance a Grachan Moncur song?
  11:07am Cecile:

Moroccan green, tell me about that? I'm just familiar with Japanese/Chinese green tea
  11:10am Drummer Some:

Demon's Dance is credited to Jackie McLean. It did have that angular, modal flavor that many of Moncur's compositions feature. I adore Grachan Moncur III!
  11:11am trs:

It's a mix of green and mint. Great hot and cold and anywhere in between. Mixed with a fruit tea, I like it in shakes, too. has more/other
  11:13am Paul Sherratt:

You all should know that Cardinal Rex Lawson is in fact Alive & Well, regularly contributing to the BBC Radio 3 forums. Sadly King Kennytone is still sorely missed.
  11:15am Drummer Some:

@Paul S
What do you mean "King Kennytone is sorely missed"? My pulse is racing, please explain...
  11:16am doug from DC:

Morocan tea goes well with a Moroccan Roll.
  11:16am seang:

i thought cardinal rex lawson died in a car crash in 76
  11:18am Hugo:

Paul, that's a very inside one. But, of course, I know exactly what you mean.
  11:21am Carmichael:

Cardinal Lawson DID die in a car accident.
  11:29am Devin:

Cubile dance party!!
  11:29am Paul Sherratt:

The remarkable creative mind that was the message board contributor known as King Kennytone got banned by the BBC.. He is the same ' King Kennytone ' who kindly sent your good self a King Kennytone recording a few years back.

Some think that the banished King has reappeared in the guise of the late Cardinal.

I hope that make some slight sense to some all as well as hugo !

Stunning set by the way
  11:34am Cecile:

@trs, those are two of my favorite flavors. thanks!
  11:40am Drummer Some:

Thanks for that elucidation. Please tell the Good Cardinal I'm relived to hear that reports of his demise are overstated.
  11:46am Hugo:

Paul, that's what I thought, too. But I'm pretty sure we're talking about the same person.
  11:48am seang:

soul has arrived!
  11:57am Sven:

Damn... that was awesome.
  12:02pm trs:


Note the different regulations for growing green tea, however, between Japan and China - one being more strict than the other
