Headbanging classical music. The perfect show for it.
  8:34pm trsh:

"Turangalîla" ?
  8:37pm trsh:

hm, "He derived the title from two Sanskrit words, turanga and lîla, which roughly translate into English as "love song and hymn of joy, time, movement, rhythm, life, and death",[4] and described the joy of Turangalîla as "superhuman, overflowing, dazzling and abandoned"."
Avatar 8:38pm bethany:

Yep, that's it. Amazing piece. Longer than this show....
  8:39pm T-Zero:

Heh, I'd added it to my music purchase "wish list"...
  8:42pm ranjit:

Nerd fact of the day: The full name of the one-eyed alien Leela on Futurama is Turanga Leela!

  8:53pm G:

OMG, I got that Karl Hass reference. Adventures in Good Music. I used to hear it on WJR-AM Detroit as a little kid circa 1970.
Avatar 8:54pm bethany:

Anyone want to take a stab at the date this was written? Listen carefully...
  8:54pm ranjit:

i think it's getting older as it goes
  8:56pm Richard from Venezuela:

  8:56pm the glowing one:

definitely 20th century
  8:57pm T-Zero:

Some time in the mid 1800s?
  8:57pm the glowing one:

I would also say between WWI and WWII
  8:58pm G:

She wouldn't ask unless it's tricky. Hmmm.... I'm guessing far earlier or far later than we'd think...???


  8:59pm Karl Haas:

G: THANK YOU. Heard him in Dallas in the nineties on W...the call letters escape me. But good lookin out.
  8:59pm the glowing one:

even if you do not hear the atonalities 1850 is definitely too early
  8:59pm Karl Haas:

  9:00pm T-Zero:

I was thinking Romanticism, but maybe Baroque?
  9:01pm the glowing one:

oh, wow
  9:01pm ranjit:

bah! Bruckner was a time traveller, clearly.
  9:01pm G:

1879, there ya go!
  9:02pm T-Zero:

Heh, broadly speaking the Romantic period.
  9:02pm Karl Haas:

I meant 18
  9:02pm the glowing one:

bye beth
  9:02pm trsh:

another note goes in my ears
  9:02pm G:

@Karl: I just wiki'ed you, and you started on WJR in 1959, were syndicated starting in 1970...
  9:03pm the glowing one:

now that's 1970s what we hear!
  9:03pm the glowing one:

  9:03pm ranjit:

we are the 1871
  9:04pm the glowing one:

the 1870s are alive on WFMU
  9:05pm ranjit:

actually, i think my guess was closest. Barber -> Bruckner, just a few letters...
  9:05pm Karl Haas:

G: Guess I heard the reruns.
  12:03pm Jon:
