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. 8/5/10 9:04am Pieter:

Good morning Trouble
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:06am david from ks:

,,,,Okay now I need a pill!!!
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:07am still b/p:

It's ain't the heat...it's the woomidity .The short bike ride was trés sexy. But watermelon waited at work.
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:07am annie:

morning all... i'm ready for trouble!
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:08am trs:

Nice chorus of peepers in the background. Feels like summer is on the way.
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:09am Sam:

Oh god yeah, I love peepers! I miss that so much, living in the city.
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:10am trs:

Yeah, amphibians and urban development. No love there.
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:12am still b/p:

April 1st was first night of peepers heard this year. Mean to note the date every year, but failed many years running.
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:16am trouble:

good morning all!
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:21am Ramon:

Ah, this is such a great record!
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:26am seang:

oh those cavorting fat pig politicians!
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:28am jan:

Shades of the (bill) Clinton Campaign for president- whenever that was... Fleetwood Mac and this song- the theme song.
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:41am gumby:

watermelon, bike rides & peepers, dam you people are livin' it this mornin'
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:43am emily:

Greetings for Portland, Maine!
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:43am Stu:

Hi Trouble ! Back home , Listening live to your 'afternoon ' show again. Had a wondeful time ( way too short ) in NY. Cheers Stu
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:44am dale:

morning all. gettin' steamy in the hudson valley.
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:45am gumby:

nice summertime feel this mornin'. Or maybe its because I'm still in my screenporch instead of at work. Either way it feels good.
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:47am Eric:

I cold brew iced coffee every day! It is so great! I use a French press, so the straining is really easy. And my expert coffee sources tell me that in a small batch of that size only needs to sit for about 3 hours. The results are good!
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:48am Mike East:

Really? room temperature or in the fridge?
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:50am gumby:

iced is my coffee preference too. It's amazing how dunkin' donuts coffee can't stand up to the ice. Starbucks is the goods. Or home brewed Papua New Guinea is really livin'
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:54am Shana:

Checking in from Ann Arbor, MI. Drinking my coffee hot and black this morning.
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:55am djarnis:

Trouble in my ears on the bus.. Sweet deal
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:55am Jennique:

Good sweaty morning to you Trouble. Considering an iced coffee this morning, which is not my usual.
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:55am gumby:

trouble just saw your ponder. Humid is way sexy. Sweat don't smell, old sweat smells. Snow is just survival. Hot is where I thrive.
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:57am trouble:

good morning portland! when are you two starlings making the big drive? hey stu! just started midsummer moomintroll...i brew the ice coffee on the counter and then put it in the fridge.
  Thu. 8/5/10 9:59am emily:

We head west on the 29th, stopping in NY to see my folks and ten onward!
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:03am Mike East:

excellent. i will try it.
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:05am aaron:

  Thu. 8/5/10 10:05am Adrian in London:

Howdy all from London. Yes to Arnaud Fleurent-Didier; great album.
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:07am trouble:

bonjour adrian!
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:09am Cecile:

my iced coffee mostly consists of the stuff I don't finish in the morning sitting in the fridge until I can season it the next day with cream and sugar. I use this coffee this Ethiopian dude imports and sells out of an old guard shack in an office complex.
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:10am Cecile:

gumby I am the complete opposite of you. I thrive in cold, I survive in hot.
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:17am Cecile:

How are Phoenix live? They're playing in town next week. I might try and get tix on Craigslist if they are any good.
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:23am don:

this is fantastic
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:31am ?:

doo-wop is where it's at today
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:40am Francis:

Bonjour Trouble.Arrived early at home, pleased to take a little rest listening to the second half of your show and writting a letter to my best friend and greatest love of my life, my double feminin trouble girl.
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:42am Dead Corporate Eyes:

and I shall write a song called "Double Feminin Trouble Girl".
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:43am Cecile:

winston troy sounds like a reggae artist.
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:44am cheri pi:

Can you imagine if Wolfman Jack had had a slot on WFMU?<3
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:44am βrian:

Salut de Madison. I'm having my triple espresso. So bitter it makes life sweet.
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:44am esch oder anarchie:

Chatter foolishly to you heart's content, Trouble -- we love you (he gushed).
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:50am Francis:

I'm a fan of Pinback ; listening to Phoenix , I had the feeling they had plagiarized Pinback , but without the wonderful complexity of Pinback : sorry,Phoenix became fastly boring for me.
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:51am Cecile:

I like that song "If I ever feel better." That's the manic-depressive's national anthem.
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:52am Woof Moo Wolfman:

never normal free-formal from the coolest school of no rules comin' at you from pumpin' and jumpin' Jersey City, baby -- Wolfman Jack's hairy tracks and freak attacks, the uppermost cuts from the outermost limits.....Woof Moo Owwooooooooo!
  Thu. 8/5/10 10:53am Cecile:

I heard it on the W. woooooooooooooooooo.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:03am Jennique:

Wolfman Jack was wonderful in American Graffiti. I still see him sitting alone at the radio station eating popsicles because the freezer broke.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:04am trouble:

yes I love that scene!
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:07am Cecile:

I loved him on 70s TV because he always brought that anarchy and fun.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:08am JK (Boston):

Got any of that new Tom Jones???
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:09am annie:

butting in here with an off-topic question: anyone else experiencing problems with firefox>
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:12am cheri pi:

Annie, I've been using ff all morning w/o problem. anything specific?
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:12am listener james from westwood:

@annie: Firefox problems w/ the playlist, or in general? In general, I find Firefox 3.x for Mac less stable than 2.x; especially when I try to print PDFs from it. Much more prone to crash.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:12am still b/p:

No Firefox issues on this site, but elsewhere...
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:12am Adrian in London:

Annie: quit and reboot. That usually fixes everything to do with computers.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:13am Adrian in London:

JK: I came acrossa John Cooper Clarke poem called Tom Jones.

"Back in town in a black Rolls Royce
The funky, hunky housewives choice
In one fact he can rejoice
His trousers don't affect his voice"
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:16am Cecile:

I liked tom better with the Art of Noise.
He's soulful, but he's no roots artist. He's like processed cheese in the best possible way.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:17am annie:

they just installed some new updates to my rss feed and ever since then, i've been experiencing hesitation issues and the browser window shutting unexpectedly or just crashing.. i use chrome for fmu...i use firefox for things which i do not want on chrome. email, web browsing, etc.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:19am annie:

oh, speaking of soul, i attended a small weekly open mike at the local pub .... the talent lacked soul.. to say the least.. and the majority of the performers were singing from sheets of lyrics and chord settings.. pretty sad..
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:21am PMD:

hello all... nice to hear the frogs/chirping Trouble.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:22am Cecile:

Tom is great. I'm not so hot on the arrangment.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:22am βrian:

" ... leurs cris discordants" Love it.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:22am Stu:

Hei Trouble, Is the Moomin book entitled "Midsummer Madness " ? Usual translation from Finnish is the "Dangerous Midsummer "

Cheers ....( I think I just heard a French frog !! )

Finnish birds next week perhaps !
Love ya! Stu
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:22am depilatrix:

  Thu. 8/5/10 11:23am Cecile:

It needs about three more choirs and strings. And a bagpipe. So it can keep up with the massiveness that is Tom.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:23am Mike East:

Open mics can be depressing - both participating and being in the audience. Depends on the scene, though
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:23am Jennique:

I think there are just a few people out there who would agree that Tom Jones is the bomb. Mostly female.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:25am fishmonkeystew:

Hey Annie! Does you local open mike allow cover songs? At least one of our local cafes claims that they can't allow cover songs because they have to pay royalties.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:25am Cecile:

Don't read Katie Roiphe. She only gets it about 6% of the time.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:27am dale:

just got netflix and it rocks. i use a roku box to stream from my dsl router to the old cathode ray tube. can see tons of movies yes, but pbs shows and documentaries i missed the first time. also have first three seasons of alfred hitchcock presents on my instant queue.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:27am trouble:

yes stu that's it!
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:28am Jennique:

Trouble, I bought the entire series of Mad Men on iTunes, so it downloads the next day on Monday. I can't handle waiting for the season to end to get them on dvd. And I agree with your comment about messiness. I watch the show to travel in time back to the 60s and thank my stars I was born later on and without birth defects!
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:28am Cecile:

I love the Netflix for the Wii
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:29am Cecile:

I don't watch Mad Men because I don't want to travel back in time to that part of the 60s.

I'm all about the RuPaul's Drag U.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:29am cheri pi:

I'm hearing some nice flesheaters' influences here.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:30am listener james from westwood:

Sans cable for the past decade, Netflix enabled my 30 Rock, Deadwood, and Mad Men catch-up binges with aplomb. I too have also supplemented w./ PBS docs. But I've also gotten the season pass for MM Season 4 on iTunes, with the goal of wiring the Mac laptop to the TV somehow when all is said and done.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:31am annie:

FMS- well.... let's just say that there were two songs performed out of the twenty or so that were original. the majority were old standard rock and roll and country western junk, badly performed.. :( free admission, though...
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:32am Brooklyn:

  Thu. 8/5/10 11:33am Crutchtar:

Merry GO Round!
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:33am Adrian in London:

There's a new Tove Jansson 'adult' book out. Travelling Light. on Sort Of books.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:35am Ike:

I was eating a nice spicy buffet at Baba Hut, an Andhra Indian hole-in-the-wall in JC, and they put on the TV to a music video channel. Unexpectedly it was a French pop music videos. And they were pretty good. Made me think of Trouble's show.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:37am still b/p:

annie, why didn't you get you up there and stun the house with a beyond-Etta rendition of "At Last"....?
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:38am annie:

bp------- you been reading my mail..... i would have...i'm shy
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:39am annie:

but i can sing the blues, man
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:39am Stu:

Thanks Adrian, I'll look for " Travelling Light" here in Finland. All her books are for adults( even the kid's ones ! ) She's a national treasure
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:44am still b/p:

"..and now I'm gonna sing for you, 'The Pale Wailing Lameness Of This Open Mike Session Has Dropped Me Two Floors Below the Sub-Dungeon of Deepest Blues'."
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:47am annie:

funny, bp, that's exactly what i was thinking as the evening wore on..
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:50am dale:

i wouldn't want the booger man to get me. boogie man, maybe
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:51am ?:

Of course they are Stu. Trouble knows this but I met her in Stockmann's once. She signed a copy of Moominvalley in November for me; "Adrian spelled like Adrian Mole?" One of my most prized possessions.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:51am annie:

update on jean ritchie: she's been released from the nursing home and is home in good spirits.
  Thu. 8/5/10 11:52am trouble:

thanks adrian. i will look for it. i love her adult fictions, rather dark..
  Fri. 8/6/10 6:02pm Nathan:

This was a great show, perfect for our lazy summer weekend here in Portland, Oregon. Never heard of the Bush Tetras before(!), good stuff.
