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. 3/18/10 9:03am annie:

not sure how long it'll last, but here i am!! morning trouble..
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:03am seang:

can't believe Alex Chilton died.
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:04am I came to Maine to go insane:

Blossom Dearie! yay!!!!!
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:04am annie:

only able to catch snatches of the fundraiser, been away from the puter alot..... much to drag me away and i'm preparing my exodus from nys. hi insane i'mma on my way on two weeks!!
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:07am trouble:

good morning all! I like the idea of going to Maine to go insane...
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:08am yayson:

so per billyjam is it officially DJ icepick now?
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:10am I came to Maine to go Insane:

Yes, it's a lovely place to be insane. I wouldn't have done it anywhere else. I had to hold it all in through NY, SF, Europe, etc.
Alex Chilton? ARgh. That bites.
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:13am seang:

I moved from Mountain View, CA to Portland, ME without knowing a soul there. Good town! Munjoy Hill!
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:16am I came to Maine to go Insane:

Santa Barbara, CA to Portland, ME for me (small world, huh?)
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:16am trouble:

no there has been no official name change to icepick. That was hilarious, mostly because of dj icepack yelling "icepack" over billy's gangster misspeak: planned or freudian? who can say?
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:18am north guinea hills:

I know, i just saw Alex a few years ago. Although when my friend toured w/ him, all they did is watch movies 24-7. not sure what that anecdote has to do w/ anything. morning!
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:27am Priscilla:

I saw Kathleen Supove at the Brooklyn Museum a few months ago! She was playing pieces of her husband's. I did not know she's "the downtown piano queen." Kewl!
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:28am texas scott:

morning,trouble.dj icepack's rendition of "Rebel,Rebel" was fun.I mistakenly referred to him as dj icepick on the comments board.
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:29am north guinea hills:

I really enjoyed that kathleen supove.
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:30am Rogier from Holland:

Really nice to hear you (trouble) live, i normally listen to the show on fridays, so finally want to say to you, Good morning Trouble live to you !
Give a shout out to bastardo, if you get the chance than keep on being the goddess of the airwaves that you are trouble !
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:33am trouble:

hello roger from holland, welcome to thursday! buy some yellow tulips.
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:36am still b/p:

Quiet Tues. sunset on Peaks Island waiting for return ferry when my friend visit was a bust was nicely saaaaaaane.
Portland (26 yrs. now) from MA via IA and TX.

(I'll see your tangential anecdote and raise you...)
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:37am cordesc:

Insane in the Membrane!
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:39am dale:

i read on wiki that chilton was all of sixteen when he recorded the letter. deep voice for such a young man.
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:43am nakedfoul:

He went to high school with my mom, and the Box Tops played her prom. I'm having a hard time of it today.
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:45am Josefa:

I saw Alex Chilton in the late '70's at CBGB. RIP
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:53am Shana:

Good morning from sunny Ann Arbor! Checking in from my outpost in the university library.
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:55am Cecile:

I saw him open for JBBX in '98 and at Joe's Star Lounge in A2 in '84. A huge loss.
(Although I'm more a Box Tops and Chilton solo fan than Big Star. Go figure)

Aw, nice Shana! I did my time at UoM in the mid-80s.
  Thu. 3/18/10 9:55am Cecile:

  Thu. 3/18/10 9:59am trouble:

  Thu. 3/18/10 9:59am Cecile:

  Thu. 3/18/10 10:02am north guinea hills:

  Thu. 3/18/10 10:04am dale:

there is lots of real birdsong mornings now, including a turkey gobbling like crazy for a mate.
  Thu. 3/18/10 10:04am Josefa:

A's and B's are covered at the same time: Argentina, Buenos Aires.
  Thu. 3/18/10 10:04am TC:

  Thu. 3/18/10 10:15am KC in MKE:

The best ones are leaving this planet

  Thu. 3/18/10 10:39am Adrian in London:

Good morning Trouble and all upright walkers. Just checking in before I go teach a class.
  Thu. 3/18/10 10:40am Cecile:

Oh, no! I liked Charlie Gillett a whole lot. He wrote the fabulous book, "The Sound of the City."
  Thu. 3/18/10 10:40am J-Mar:

Nashville's in the house. Stunned by the news about one of our state's greatest.
  Thu. 3/18/10 10:41am Tim:

Champaign IL

  Thu. 3/18/10 10:43am Cecile:

  Thu. 3/18/10 10:43am texas scott:

fort worth
  Thu. 3/18/10 10:44am Jim:

Harriman State Park, new York... Good bird song, seems to be inciting the early birds here in the park.
  Thu. 3/18/10 10:44am Sky:

T- town, Tuscaloosa clocking in. Thank you Trouble!
  Thu. 3/18/10 10:44am Lou:

  Thu. 3/18/10 10:47am ?:

  Thu. 3/18/10 10:51am rogier from holland:

Heya Trouble, got some tulips for you..
  Thu. 3/18/10 10:55am Cecile:

  Thu. 3/18/10 10:56am Neil:

Oh gosh do I love this Pastels cover. Just goes to show that there's more to life than hitting the correct notes.
  Thu. 3/18/10 10:56am Parq:

@Jim: I loves me some Harriman State Park. Used to hike off Skyline Drive all the time as a kid in north NJ.
  Thu. 3/18/10 10:56am quinn:

hey trouble! i live above stacey's store in red hook and we were chatting about you the other day. y'all have very similar laughs.
  Thu. 3/18/10 10:58am north guinea hills:

@ Adrian in London, Thanks for the info.

sad, sad day :(
  Thu. 3/18/10 10:58am Cecile:

I almost got in an Internet slap fight back in the day for thinking Like Flies on Sherbet was a great album. I didn't get it at first, but then saw it live and it completely made sense. Love My Rival.
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:00am Cecile:

@Neil, I have a high tolerance for struggling singing, but this just didn't move me. Glad she played it though! That's why I listen to this station!
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:00am Cecile:

it done live I meant to say.
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:02am The Log Lady:

Hi Trouble,
A gentle reminder that the log has a special message for you today, in case you didn't see it already. (I just got out of a meeting, so I wasn't listening until now.)
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:03am Leigh:

NYC good morning, I See Only Sunshine!
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:06am Neil:

@Cecile, While Stephen Pastel may not be the most perfect singer, on this track it seems to me he's playing up the missed notes intentionally, and, to my ears, to great effect. I have always found this track to be very endearing.
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:07am matheus:

Hey Trouble,

any The Fall today to praise our beloved Alex Chilton? (he was a great fan of the band)
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:09am trouble:

hello stacey's upstairs neighbor quinn!
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:09am J-Mar:

@matheus, wow, I had no idea Chilton was a fan of The Fall. But I totally see the logic of it.
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:09am Cecile:

Then I am glad you got to hear a song you loved!

I never knew Chilton loved the Fall. Awesome.
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:10am kris:

Marcio Local
singer so relaxed and straight out, no processing on the way out...
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:15am matheus:

Fantastic! I might have peed in my pants.
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:15am corey:

Mark E reading footbal scores love it!
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:16am barney:

From the twitter-nets: "@marincogan: rep. steve cohen paying tribute to alex chilton on the house floor right now"

(and poor Sheffield Wednesday can't catch a break)
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:17am Cecile:

Now, I want to hear him reading the phone book.
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:18am dale:

this is as hypnotic as listening to a shortwave numbers station
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:18am J-Mar:

Steve Cohen = our "hip" Tennessee state congressman, from Memphis. There was a big flap some years back when the paper I worked for mentioned that he'd been spotted at a party smoking pot.
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:19am J-Mar:

Sorry -- wrong terminology. Not a state congressman, but a state representative.
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:23am Eric:

'Every time I close my eyes/I see the light of day/And every time I open them/I just can't find my way....
One of the best songs ever written, IMHO RIP
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:26am nakedfoul:

And here come the waterworks! Eff, eff, eff!
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:35am Cecile:

At that time the Rolling Stones were the vanguard. They were great.

But tis true, they were quite eccentric. Less visceral.
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:35am Cecile:

Big Star, I mean.
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:38am Adrian in London:

I can't listen live so sorry if already mentioned but Jody Stephens was a guest on Three Chord Monte last year http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/33675
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:38am dc pat:

just back again--there's a video of Mark E reading those football scores. He is one wild, motherf-.
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:44am trouble:

dc pat, that is the vid i took the sound from...
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:47am barney:

here's video of Steve Cohen-bizarre the way the house works, but touching:
"attackerman RT @pareene: RT @benjamin_oc Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN)'s tribute to Alex Chilton on the House floor this morning: http://bit.ly/bZYDNU (video)"
  Thu. 3/18/10 11:58am J-Mar:

Awesome, awesome show today, Trouble. Just what I needed to hear in the wake of today's sad news (and while having to slog through a tedious proofreading job). I got chills when I heard "Mystery Train" come on.
