Listener comments!

  3:05am T-Zero:

Morning, Bill! Slip sliding along and freezing your butt?
  3:07am Bill Mac:

Mistah T! You got it, the blast came in this morning. Hey I'm surprised that we got this far into the year without brutal weather. Hey all!
  3:10am T-Zero:

Yeah, I've been happy it's been so mild 'til now. Freezing my butt this morning though. It's only about 7F here at the moment.
  3:13am Looms:

Hello Bill & T-Z. yaaaaaaawn...
  3:14am T-Zero:

That Tigers piece was fine... like those kiwis...

Morning, Looms!
  3:14am Bill Mac:

Hey Looms.... yawn indeed.... cold and a little tired this morning, but hey, we're here!
  3:16am Looms:

  3:17am Brian in UK:

Hello Bill, T-Zero & Looms.
Fuckin' freezin'. just fed chickens, one egg already, still warm, crazy birds but I'm not complaining.
  3:19am Bill Mac:

Just what the heck do you do Brian? I keep hearing these allusions to life away from the rat race. Are you that lucky?
Oh.... Hey Brian!
  3:19am Looms:

Wake me up... Ooooh yes, wake me up good!
  3:20am Looms:

Oops! Sorry guys, I was talking to my ciffee mug...
Howdy Brian!
  3:21am Bill Mac:

What kind of ciffee, Looms?
  3:22am T-Zero:

Morning, Brian UK. Funny story for you... When I was little grandparents had chickens and always left one egg in the nest to get the hens to lay there and not out in the yard.. An aunt didn't know this and collected the egg on Thanksgiving for grandmother to use... Needless to say, when cracked the rotten egg exploded and the place smelled like sulfur all Thanksgiving day... Have never forgotten that lol
  3:23am Sonaroj:

Bill, you been gone,right? You're back? You're different. Reggae didn't happen with the old Bill Mac I knew. You are an impostor!
  3:23am Looms:

@Bill: the kind of ciffee that becomes coffee once you're awake ;)
It's an arabica but I don't wanna do free advertisement.
  3:25am Bill Mac:

@Sonaroj, Hey man, no it's me, the one and only.... kind of in groove mode at the moment, but you see swatches of the ODB in there....
  3:26am Bill Mac:

Happy thanksgiving!
  3:26am Bill Mac:

@ Looms.... nuff said mate.... drink yr drink
  3:27am Brian in UK:

Bill, I live in the middle of a medium size town, Allusion or illusion, I think not.
Nice story T-Zero.
Bill, see you played 3 Mustaphas 3. Sabah Habas Mustapha went on to make music in different styles. This Indonesian stuff is loverly.
  3:27am T-Zero:

@Bill, it was a mess, egg was everywhere... walls, ceiling... people... But it was soooo funny.
  3:30am Bill Mac:

@Brian you may have pointed that out before... I was a huge fan of 3M3 and they seemed to abruptly leave the music business with at least one thinly done album at the end as their exit work. Thanks for reminding me about him again
  3:31am Sonaroj:

Hmm, still looking, but I take your word. You find love or something? When people do the music usually softens up. That's okay, though. Just for fun, how 'bout some Mayyors.
  3:32am Brian in UK:

Looms, I was thinking of going over to Paris for the day in Feb on Eurostar. You can do that now it is so easy. Going to L'Orangerie & Musee D'Orsay. Buy some eau de vie.

Short term memory lapse, Bill.
  3:33am Bill Mac:

I've been rounding out the edges for quite some time now. Check this one out, it might make you change your mind about the softening. Mayyors huh? lemmee check...
  3:33am Bill Mac:

@Brian Hey man, I get that!
  3:33am Brian in UK:

Going to freeze my nuts off now, walking mutley.
  3:34am Bill Mac:

@Brian - Pants, brother!
  3:34am Jay/ London:

Good Morning Bill and all ... @ t-zero liked the story :)
  3:35am Bill Mac:

Yo Jay!
  3:36am T-Zero:

Morning, Jay!
  3:37am Sonaroj:

The Barry Anderson was nice.
  3:39am Bill Mac:

One of my faves,,,, He's being interviewed on Chris's show tomorrow night at 3am EST in case your interested.
  3:39am Martyn:

Good morning all.
Elliot Sharpe on the Sulphur label, specially for T-Zero, no?
  3:40am Looms:

Love the "prince and princess" story song on Oedipus Schmoedipus, don't remember the title.
@Jay & Martyn: morning!
@T-Z: good one.
  3:41am T-Zero:

Morning, Martyn.
  3:41am Bill Mac:

Hey Martin! Yes indeedy... in memory of Eggy.
  3:42am T-Zero:

You funny man...
  3:42am Bill Mac:

Another of the songs on the Adamson CD that I'll look for. Vibes is nice n creepy...
  3:43am Bill Mac:

I have moments.... the other moments I'm just stoopit
  3:44am Looms:

I think it's Vermillion Kisses.
  3:55am Jay/ London:

hey bill hows the new job going ?
  3:57am Bill Mac:

new job is good... they sent me away for classes this week... didn't realize how much I dislike sitting in a classroom.. can't wait to get back to work, believe it or not... how've you been Jay?
  4:02am Jay/ London:

i like this super violao mashup sounds like it could be on a film soundtrack... thanks bill i hate going to class as well i am still waiting for another op still have the stitches in so can not walk far and not enjoying work so much a have to stay in the the office mostly and do boring office stuff :(
  4:04am Bill Mac:

Boring office stuff at job? as opposed to what?
  4:06am Jay/ London:

gooing out of the office to embassys and being able to work alone at my own pace not having people on my back T-Zero
  4:09am Bill Mac:

See that sounds interesting... sadly my job is exclusive to the office
  4:10am Abby in France:

hi bill, hi everybody,
yeah i noticed a difference too.
@brian tomorrow is the first sunday of the after-xmas sales in paris.
  4:10am T-Zero:

  4:11am Bill Mac:

What happens in Paris after xmas? Are the sales that good?
  4:12am Jay/ London:

@ abby in france we had sales that started before Christmas and are sill ongoing
  4:24am alberto:

tommy guerrero!!!!!!!!
  4:28am Bill Mac:

That's right Alberto!
  4:33am Stanley:

Good morning Bill, good morning all. Nice to be back after the Christmas/New Year disruption. I'm a creature of habit at heart and I don't like messing with my Saturday mornings!
  4:35am Looms:

Welcome back, Stanley!
  4:36am Abby:

eurostar is having a sale, did you know that brian? 179 euros both ways.
it depends on if you like french fashion, bill mac. usually the stores are closed on sundays.
i had a dream about people discussing 'world music.' i hate that term. it reminds me of seinfeld and 'high fidelity.' is there another name for it?
  4:36am Bill Mac:

hey Stanley, yep try as I might, it seems that I'm permanently lodged here in the dead of night.... I could think of worse places to be...
  4:38am Bill Mac:

It is overused isn't it? Gotta get the brain trust together to modify it more to our liking...
  4:42am Looms:

@Abby: I'm with you about the "world music" term. It makes no sense and sounds a bit xenophobic.
  5:09am Jay/ London:

I very much like ( I used to believe in you ) !!
  5:10am Bill Mac:

Some nice cuts on the H/S CD!
  5:11am Brian in UK:

Thawing out. JC it is cold.
Thanks Abby, funny I thought of going over then cheap prices appeared, it is a sign, no it's a shoe!
I though there was either good or bad music. Full stop/Point
  5:12am Jay/ London:

any chance of playing another one off it bill ?
  5:13am Bill Mac:

Certainly Jay
  5:13am Brian in UK:

What's this about you getting soft, Bill. I do not hear it. Least ways not aurally!!!!
  5:14am Bill Mac:

Nah.... however I got called out during the Lee Scratch dub track early in the show...
  5:16am Jay/ London:

@ Brian in UK all music is good if you like it if not its bad .. thanks bill will have to search out the cd
  5:17am Bill Mac:

I think I found another goodie Jay.... I like the more dissonant crunchy stuff on the CD, hope you don't mind.
  5:18am Jay/ London:

go for it bill
  5:18am Brian in UK:

Scratch is playing London at the end of the month, going to see Orchestra Baobab around then. World music I believe.
Well as John Peel said he would defend the right of any music to be heard even Merzbow.
  5:18am Bill Mac:

OK, so it's not all that dissonant!
  5:20am Bill Mac:

Hey Brain, don't know if you were reading, but we were talking about trying to find an alternate way of saying "World Music"... any idears?
  5:24am Jay/ London:

the only thing i can come up with is (roots music) but don't think that does it bill
  5:25am Brian in UK:

The term was devised if that is the right word by some knowledgable people in record industry in a pub in North London. I believe in the 80s.
I know when I've been hit.
Sorry, why do we need to give everything a title, it's like poor reviewers who have constantly to compare a group they are reviewing usually with The Beach Boys due to lack of imagination.
Music from country of origin. File under Pop/Rock.
  5:25am Looms:

Orchestra Baobab are great!
@Bill: trans cultural music maybe... Rob Weisberg don't use the world music term either.
  5:26am Steve:

To think Beefheart was making his start about the time of the Patty Duke Show (I saw a bit of her today somehow)
  5:27am T-Zero:

I don't know what "world" music even means. Music is either indigenous eastern, western, or western-fusion... still US-centric though, as it generally takes US roots rock as a starting point.
  5:28am Bill Mac:

He doesn't? It actually surprises me that it annoys anybody, but it does seem shortsighted to bunch all the none English speaking materials into one generic category.
  5:29am Bill Mac:

I just finished the Beefheart book up and yeah, what was it, 1963 when the Magic Band started? Dirty Blue Gene is actually my fave Beef track at the moment.
  5:30am T-Zero:

@Looms: Trans-cultural would be a definite improvement.
  5:30am Looms:

Bill, that's my point with a slight difference for me: it does seem shortsighted to bunch all the none French speaking materials into one generic category ;)
  5:31am Jay/ London:

i give you my vote on that Looms
  5:33am Brian in UK:

The people that came up with the term did not even like it.
Looms you have Anglo & Franco West Africa for a start. They sit quite happily side by side without being told what they are to the outside world. It is just whiteys need.
  5:34am Jeremy / UK:

Tuning in a bit late. Gonna have to catch up with this show in the archive, looks like a cracker, but it should ease work a bit next week. Quite a posse in from the UK this morning, Bill!
  5:35am T-Zero:

Oddly, I've not had a problem with "world fusion", as that seems to indicate a fusion of multiple genres and styles from disparate cultural influences... It's the term "world music" by itself I find meaningless.
  5:39am Brian in UK:

It's a bit like debating how long is a piece of string.

Funny the only time I really like electric guitar is on Congo/Zimbabwe etc music. Sounds so fresh.
  5:43am Looms:

@T-Zero: world fusion makes sense as it is a specific process of creation. World music is much used as a marketing label (label... does this word make sense here?)
  5:43am T-Zero:

Heh, and would that be string or twine? ;)
  5:45am T-Zero:

That "tongue in cheek" was to Brian UK...

Looms: Yeah, that makes sense re: process...
  5:45am Jeremy / UK:

Zimbabwean guitar, with you on that Brian. Was listening to Mechanic Manyeruke yesterday, such transporting, uplifting music, down to the voices and, yes, guitar
  5:45am Brian in UK:

T-Zero Never the twine shall meet.
  5:46am Bill Mac:

I've never been fond of the word fusion used in music... maybe it's because it implies the virtuosity (sterility) of that type of music
  5:46am Brian in UK:

ditto prog rock
  5:47am Stanley:

All music is folk music. I ain't ever heard a horse sing a song (Louis Armstrong)
  5:47am Bill Mac:

Aaagh! You got that right!
  5:48am Bill Mac:

.... and if he did he'd get.... hoarse..... sorry hanging around the wrong group of people this week...
  5:49am Brian in UK:

Well, he's a pal o mine o. Sorry.
  5:50am Stanley:

Now, no horseplay Bill
  5:50am Looms:

Aaah... Billie :)
  5:50am Bill Mac:

Ouch.... hello? Is this thing on?
  5:53am Abby:

that was beautiful
  5:53am Brian in UK:

Time for breakfast. Keep it coming, Bill.

Favourite instruments: Pedal Steel guitar & Kora.
  5:54am Looms:

How about pedal steel kora?
  5:55am Brian in UK:

Got any Malian country music?
  5:56am T-Zero:

@Brian: I'm hungry too. Been awake since about 10pm though, so I'm ready for dinner... had breakfast when I woke up ;)
  5:56am Bill Mac:

OK Folks!!! Did I actually play Kora? What can I say? I'm sorry!!! Diggin the Cambodian Blues singer as this weeks outro... take it light this week and stay warm....

Malian country music.... put your hand down Brian!
  5:57am Looms:

  5:58am Brian in UK:

Anyone fancy this?
  5:58am Jeremy / UK:

Cambodian blues, hooda thunk it? Thanks Bill!
  5:58am Stanley:

Thanks Bill anutha mutha. Take care everyone.
  5:58am Jeremy / UK:

not sure I'd be old enough for that, Brian, just looking at the URL ;-)
  5:59am Looms:

Thanks Bill!
  5:59am Steve:

Turkish Santur is one fine instrument
  6:00am T-Zero:

Thanks for another great show to increase my musical education. ;) (And I'm saying screw the heat bill, I'm turning up the furnace...)
  6:00am Jeremy / UK:

a bit of ney..?
