Listener comments!

  9:24pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings Martha.
  9:39pm Marmalade Kitty:

Hola! This, Blinding Vision is great!!
  9:44pm Martha:

Hello all - thanks for checking in -
  9:53pm Marmalade Kitty:

Little Princess Orchestra apparently, have a countless, ever changing line up of current and post members since 2006.. really interesting, fun, mash up!!
  9:57pm Martha:

Great info - thanks! - didn't know anything about them and wasted way too much time before checking out the CD -
  10:05pm Marmalade Kitty:

How does the new bin work? Do bands and musicians, record co's etc, post material to the station?
  10:15pm WFU Idiot:

I see your "music for your inner 17-year old white boy" Yea well probably not very true. I work with a 20 year old white boy and the maturity level just is'nt there. I really can't see him listoning to this show.
  10:19pm Marmalade Kitty:

Just looked at youtube"wfmu library technique.." concerning new bin. I see.. :)
  10:19pm WFU Idiot:

OK maybe that
  10:19pm Martha:

Well, it's meant to speak to the kind of music that moves you, enthralls you, obsesses you, the kind of music that has you sitting in the dark with your headphones - that sort of innocent obsessiveness. But clearly I need a new show description - suggestions more than welcome -
  10:26pm WFU Idiot:

Ya know I was going to object to that, but you are right.
  10:29pm Martha:

Object away! - coming up with show descriptions is hard and you are hardly the first person to think mine somewhat idiotic if not uninformative - I've gotta work on it -
  10:38pm WFU Idiot:

Whew! Sorry to have started this. I would have loved to have heard this in my headphones at 17 or any year. Um I turned 60 this year and this is on my play list.
  10:48pm WFU Idiot:

Crap! I stoped the stream. I didn't mean to do that.
  10:50pm Martha:

You didn't start anything! No apologies! - always love to hear comments one way or the other. No worries! - and thanks for listening so carefully -
  10:52pm Dan:

This last set has been insane, really liked the sequence a lot. Whole show has been really cool, also really liked the Milton Cardona and Silvana Deluigi tunes.
  10:57pm Martha:

Hi Dan- thanks for checking in - try to get the tracks to work but not too slickly so thanks for the compliment - and for listening -
  10:57pm Marmalade Kitty:

Music for your inner 17-year old Morrissey, Is a little more specific..! Morrissey, bless him, is one of the biggest music fans ever after all.. But, I have to say, I did not like the way Morrissey and Marr behaved during the claims to music rights of the Smiths etc. It seems to me, that greed became more important.
  11:03pm WFU Idiot:

Morrissey is an aquired taste. Not for everyone, But...
  11:08pm Marmalade Kitty:

I suggested morrissey as a description only.
Anyway, how can anyone not like the Smiths..?
  11:34pm Adam:

Uh, by not liking them, MK. I only recently, decades after first exposure, have come to appreciate the other Smiths and barely tolerate the overwrought Saint Stephen Patrick Morrissey. There's no accounting for taste, BUT what helped was a friend of mine who suggested much of the Smiths/Pope of Mope oeuvre was at least partly in jest. The goths and eurotrash friends of my youth had never suggested a hint of irony, making the man an insufferable depressed Liberace purporting (debatably) to be asexual to "keep the girls wanting him." On the other hand, if the Mozer is a cabaret persona that is tongue-in-cheeck, well...anything's possible? I started liking "Girlfriend in a Coma," laughing each time I imagine Morrissey having, much less worrying over, a girlfriend.
  11:35pm Esteban:

In a bizarre way, this song by "The Great Valley" is very much like early OMD, and I mean that as a compliment.
  11:36pm Marmalade Kitty:

Adam, it really shouldn't be that difficult..
  11:37pm Adam:

"Ugh! A Music War" has a great OMD performance of "Enola Gay," and dozens of other groups, from 1980-1981 concert footage.
  11:38pm Adam:

What can I say, my Kitty? That man always failed to excite me.
  11:38pm Esteban:

Adam, you will one day love the Smiths. Truth.
  11:38pm Marmalade Kitty:

No "war" here.. :)
  11:39pm Esteban:

I must investigate this film(?) called "Ugh…"
  11:40pm dan in Falls Church VA:

really good shoe...
  11:46pm Adam:

"Love" is an awfully strong word. Perhaps the way a non-believer can appreciate scriptures as literature, but not for devotional purposes: so with the Great Immiserator and myself.
"Urgh!" is fabulous. The Police and the other Copeland brothers helped put it together, and it ranges from heavyweights of punk, post-punk and new wave (like Devo, Dead Kennedys, Go-Gos, Oingo Boingo, UB40, Echo and the Bunnymen, Cramps, Gary Numan, Joan Jett, XTC, Pere Ubu) down through degrees of fame to wonderful lesser knowns: Klaus Nomi, Splodgeness Abounds, Athletico Spizz 80, Skafish, Steel Pulse, 999 and so forth. Outtakes abound, as well, for the procrastinator and the web detective alike.
  11:47pm Martha:

Well, I should say that I was way too much of a hardcore/punk snob in my "yout" to deign to listen to The Smiths - I once caught myself enjoying Squeeze and had to bang my head against a wall for a bit - though I have grown up now and love Squeeze so should check out the Smiths -
  11:47pm Marmalade Kitty:

For music War, may I suggest Motörhead? He's in my Firm ;)
  11:49pm Martha:

Thanks for the shoe appreciation -
  11:50pm Martha:

I [heart] Motorhead, regardless of the application - nice umlaut by the way -
  11:50pm Marmalade Kitty:

Ok! I understand everything..
  11:51pm Adam:

Motorhead is fan-fucking-tastic. In the interests of full disclosure, at the time of my first resistance to the Smiths, I was near-exclusively into psychedelic music and long, long instrumentals before branching out in the many years since.

Agreed, I'm jealous of the umlaut.
  11:53pm Esteban:

Adam, "love" is, indeed, a strong word :). Maybe I should have said "utterly embrace", instead. I joke. Anyway, thanks for the scoop on this film, I'd see it for Numan alone. Of the lesser-knowns, 999 rings a bell, I remember one of their songs rhymed "urgency" with "emergency" or something ridiculous. Sounds like a great collection of footage.
  11:53pm Marmalade Kitty:

glad your ears have evolved somewhat! "These things take time.."
  11:58pm Adam:

Yeah, acid rock is still a first love, and a deepest love, but its purpose is to serve as a point of departure or an inspiration to explore, no?

Also, my profound irritation at Morrissey eventually gave way to a more pronounced annoyance by Michael Stipe. There's no pompadour to make his whining tolerable.

Everyone, if you like the punk-to-new-wave era, check out "Urgh!"

FREE LIBYA! Iran, Bahrain, Algeria, Syria, "Saudi" Arabia: you're next!
  12:01am Marmalade Kitty:

Oh sorry, "Ugh", a film reference! thank you.. I thought you were fed up, Adam..
By the way, are you a Robot?
  12:02am Adam:

Not a robot, lady Marmalade: just a man who has made a lot of mistakes.
  12:04am Esteban:

I can't defend Stipe. Even the name "Stipe" is irritating.
  12:06am Esteban:

Isn't it "Pulaski Skyway". Even if that's not the official name, it just sounds more grand.
  12:07am Marmalade Kitty:

WoW!!, I love a bit of stereolab!
  12:10am Adam:

Therese's playlist is open for business, comrades...
