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.

Hello from Madison. Let us drink from Troubled waters.
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:10am pauldepiperssoninparadise:

  Thu. 7/29/10 9:11am trs:

Good day.
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:12am annie:

you always manage to outdo yourself trouble.. keeping the headphones on so i can catch the undercurrents.
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:14am trouble:

thank you pauldpsip, the desperation of dead air is a keen motivator...
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:20am Chris - Bristol:

Morning Trouble and all. Great news: after 11 months unemployed I have been offered a job this morning so this will be the last chance I get to hear you live. This station, your show and Mr Drummer have kept me sane over what has been a difficult time for me... I couldn't donate last time you were raising funds but will send over some cash when I get my first pay check! Cheers Trouble!
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:21am trouble:

congrats chris!!
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:22am north guinea hills:

congrats Chris! I may have to go on the dole myself once my current job peters out in a few months.
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:26am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

Excellent Chris been there myself and good luck... and WFMU had kept me ,well sane, through the worse..the Archives are an amazing thing!!! but somehow still love bringing that 25 year old Emerson Radio to the beach ... the memories or just finally getting to the beach and saying ""AHH Finally got the Station clear'''' !!!
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:32am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

Oh I'm Diggin' this one now !!!! \:D/ \:D/\:D/
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:33am Chris - Bristol:

Thanks Trouble, NGH and Tom, the dole is no fun but at least the lady I used to deal with treated me like a human being! I might buy her some sweets and a knitting magazine (she likes knitting). Hope things work out NGH - gonna crack open a beer and enjoy the show!
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:35am annie:

chris, good on ya!! praise the goddesses for the archives!
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:36am Working hard in Vacationland:

If I couldn't listen to you and your sounds in my cubicle, I don't know if I could even get out of bed on Thursday mornings. I get all weepy just thinking about what a life saver your show is. I can now make it through until Friday at 5. Whew.
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:36am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

This is a Good One !!! "Pete Murray" -- "Opportunity"" >> http://www.lyricstime.com/pete-murray-opportunity-lyrics.html
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:37am Sam:

You are right, the melisma things are sooo tiresome! Lauren Hill is the bomb though.
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:38am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

Oh This is The Modern World now sorry -- the Underwater Theme Park is closed now -- hehe
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:40am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

<< Tunes the Matin to Open "D" and gets the shot glass....
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:40am seang:

jeez everyone is so miserable at their work--maybe we don't need jobs
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:43am Working hard in Vacationland:

I definitely need my job - if my babies want to eat every day that is.
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:45am Shana:

We should all work in libraries.
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:46am Cheri Pi:

I work in a library! I"m so lucky, I can listen to WFMU in my cube all day long.
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:53am Chris - Bristol:

Cheers Annie - I have really enjoyed reading your comments over the last year.
  Thu. 7/29/10 9:59am annie:

:) now send a job to me, honey!
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:00am annie:

KK- never tire of him.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:02am Jennique:

Good morning Trouble! I saw some posts this week that made me think of you. First off is my re-discovery of Pierre Henry and Michel Colombier. I had listened to them in the early 90s and forgotten their zippy moog tunes. Here's a link to a wonderful 1960s fashion show on a Bateau-Mouche with their music in the background:


Next off is "the king" Chris Christie deriding the Mtv show Jersey Shore.

  Thu. 7/29/10 10:04am Skirkie:

The line went across the street to CVS yesterday.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:05am Mike East:

I think this may be the tragic day when my speakers die on me for good. As much as it pains me, I may need to buy new speakers for my work computer...I don't hold out much hope for my boss replacing these just so I can listen to the radio all day. Anyone know where I can get some good cheap computer speakers?
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:06am trouble:

good morning jennique! those sound fab! can't wait to see them both, obviously for 2 different reasons...
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:07am annie:

yard sales mike
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:09am Mike East:

Ooh - that's not a bad idea, Annie. This is the season for them. Good call.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:10am amy:

mike east. i have a pair i'd mail to you- if i knew where that would be.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:12am annie:

neato, i love how that works!
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:13am Alex:

@ Mike East

You can get the little JBL Duet speakers for about $50 well spent. Anything cheaper sounds like tin usually. They are the best cheap speakers I've found.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:13am Mike East:

That'd be amazing! Email me. I'll give you an address and a UPS acct number. dictatoreast@gmail.com
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:16am Mike East:

Alex - I'd think about getting those for my home. Spending 50 bucks at work makes me feel like I'm paying my boss for workplace improvements.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:21am Alex:

Yea, good point Mike.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:30am Cheri Pi:

Jennique that fashion show link is fantastique!
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:34am north guinea hills:

W/in the last year, i've curbed two pairs of computer speakers I found while cleaning out my apartment, one pair had never been used. If you're in the NYC area, this is the time to check for free stuff that's been curbed. I just found a stash of records and a nice table yesterday.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:38am PMD:

I just thought I had frogs in the morning. Then I remembered who I was listening to.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:38am ╬▓rian:

Trouble, did you read about songbird carnage in the New Yorker? At least your birds seem healthy.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:38am v k:

Bose computer speakers keep my sane at work 50+ hrs a week - not best for home stereo, but i/m/o best for pc - link: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_018COMP2II/Bose-Companion-2-system.html?tp=252
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:39am Jennique:

Oh I have to agree with the seasonal theme there Trouble. I have memories of going to see dragstrip races in San Jose, California in the summer. Sea of Love is a great one too, despite that movie with Ellen Barkin and Al Pacino.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:41am stu:

Morning Trouble great to listen from here in the neighborhood!. dreamy summer tunes thanx
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:53am trouble:

good morning stu!
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:54am zoot:

Martha and the Muffins! Hooray. After all, This is the Ice Age.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:54am Lucky:

That Crystal Castles song sounded awesome.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:54am listener james from westwood:

Oh, "Echo Beach"! I adore this lost little New Wave hit.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:54am Phil Oakey:

How about playing my seminal 80's classic "Together in electric dreams"?
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:55am listener mark:

Good morning trouble.
Good morning everyone.
  Thu. 7/29/10 10:56am Alex:

Oh Martha. Excellent cut.
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:00am Jennique:

Dick Dale is a summer favorite of mine as well as Link Wray.
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:01am Skirkie:

My word, time has been elapsing entirely too fast during this show.
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:04am v k:

giving some props to an album i picked-up this week - Hush Arbors, Yankee Reality (ecstatic peace, 2008) - first heard of this band when Ben Walker played its best track, "One Way Ticket" (easily in my top 25) - i am really mesmerized by this album - a to z - and consider the frontman (Keith Wood) truly brilliant - like approaching Reid, Byrne, Yorke brilliant - also wondering if anyone else knows anything about this band - very little about it online
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:04am Carmichael:

Good morning Trouble. I see you have the good taste to play Martha and Her Muffins. One of my all-time favorites
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:08am Carmichael:

You're a good man, David ....
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:11am annie:

what a great song this is...
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:16am Jennique:

In my mind, this is the ONLY version of the song that matters. I love Stephens lyrics so much more than the original.
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:17am ?:

It is a good song, HOWEVER... "...where dreams are made of"? That kind of sucks.
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:17am listener mark:

steve colbert version. excellent, -- outstanding!
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:17am Carmichael:

@vk: go to the Allmusic site and look up Hush Arbors. There's a lot of info under each album (though there's not a formal group bio).
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:18am Jennique:

"These streets will make you feel brand new"
Eh, not so much lately.
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:19am seang:

here's my guilty pleasure: Vanessa Carlton's song A Thousand Miles--"If I could fall...--goosebumpsville
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:20am Ken:

Trouble, are you playing this Pomplaloose from youtube or has it been released?
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:20am Joe M.:

DJ Monica alerts us to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNfbX6uvA6s. Genius.
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:20am Mike East:

@? - That is a fantastic point. That makes absolutely no sense.
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:22am Andrew (?):

Yeah. Always kind of bugs me because it makes an otherwise great song seem incredibly dumb.
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:25am Mike East:

Yeah. It seems like there's enough ways to make that lyric make sense. It isn't even completing a rhyme, which is sometimes forgivable.
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:27am trouble:

ken, i have an mp3 of it, from a bloggggg
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:28am Jennique:

Love the reverb guitar on this.
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:33am Cecile:

just enjoying the tunes. Not chatty.
Thank God, right?
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:35am annie:

aahhh, there you are, over in the corner..
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:36am Carmichael:

I did NOT say that, Cecile ...
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:42am Cecile:

that's me in the spotlight.
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:45am Carmichael:

  Thu. 7/29/10 11:52am Whisper:

This is all purely stochastic.
  Thu. 7/29/10 11:59am v k:

@Carmicheal - thanks for tip
