Hiya charlie - looking forward to the show! Have you seen this:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am charlie:

Hi Michael! No, I hadn't seen that -- it's great!
  11:55am ndbob:

morning Charlie and everyone!
  11:56am Vicki:

Herro! Nice animated gif!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56am charlie:

Morning, Bob!
Helloo, Vicki.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57am charlie:

Yes, the animated gif is worth the whole show :)
  12:01pm don:

lettuce boogie!
  12:05pm Katya:

Hello there, folks!
  12:06pm Laura L:

That disc she's dancing on must be Teflon coated like the one that used to be in Chinatown in NYC with the dancing chicken.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm charlie:

- Let's elope.
- Can't elope.
- oh, Honey do!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm charlie:

Hello Katya! and Laura L!
  12:07pm ndbob:

good one here Charlie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11pm charlie:

She's here because my dancing chicken has the day off.
  12:14pm Van in DC:

Good day Charlie and everyone. I'm at work so must hurry away from the playlist here else I get fired
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm charlie:

OK Van, thanks for saying Hi!
  12:15pm Katya:

Same as Van. Gotta beat a deadline, but all ears for Busy Doing Nothing.
  12:19pm northguineahills:

You had me fumbling w/ my Buffalo Springfield box set as my memory shorted out as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm charlie:

words fail me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm charlie:

speaking of which, watch this clip Michael shared:
you can watch it while you listen to the show!
  12:21pm Gary Mitchell:

me too.. i think it has to do with listening to so much music
  12:22pm Gary Mitchell:

Krazy intra song segue
  12:22pm Vicki:

oooh, what happened then?
  12:24pm Gary Mitchell:

woof moo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm charlie:

plenty sonic tomfoolery, that
and Helloooo, Gary!
  12:28pm Doug S.:

Sounds like Charlie's audio reverted briefly to the stream's content (which normally flows silently in the background). For the record, the stream was playing "Je Ne Bois Pas Beaucoup" by Les Ya Toupas du Zaire. (And I hear they were HONORED to be on Charlie's show, if only for a brief visit.)
  12:29pm joe:

'ello folks
  12:29pm Vicki:

yes, it certainly weren't Oren Ambarchi (on the other fmu stream) :))
  12:30pm Dervish:

Didn't Eszter star in that early Jarmusch film Stranger Than Paradise?
  12:31pm Michael:

she did - she was the cousin if I recall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm charlie:

'ello Joe
Yes, Dervish (hello), she sure 'nuff did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm charlie:

Playing stream roulette!
  12:32pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Hi Charlie! Hi Vicki, Doug, and all other listeners!
  12:32pm joe:

This is actually a really cool comp. Some really good stuff on here.
  12:34pm Gary Mitchell:

jarmusch drop, too... hey somebody planned this show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm charlie:

yeah, joe, also the tzadik burt bacharach trib -- very good
  12:35pm Stanley:

This is so cool. I'm back from work early and its kickin' already.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm charlie:

welcome home, Stanley
  12:39pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Now I'm thinking of the Bugs Bunny episode where he leads the two back-woods types (who want to eat him) in a violent square-dance. Twirl twirl twist and whirl!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm charlie:

Hello Wendy! All roads lead to Bugs Bunny cartoons.
  12:46pm ndbob:

Hey Gary! @Charlie - one of the rare shows where you can here Captain Beefheart and Jose Iturbi in the same hour:)
  12:48pm Gary Mitchell:

very good point bob
  12:48pm Michael:

Some interesting stories in the NYTimes this morning on the Kraftwork shows at MOMA and the people attending. If you're interested.
  12:49pm joe:

@charlie funny I think Wendy made a very similar statement the last time I saw here. :)
  12:50pm joe:

Yes I agree Love the Burt B tribute as well
  12:50pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Joe, it's entirely possible. But as Charlie says, all roads lead back to Bugs Bunny, especially the ones that cause you to make a left turn at Albuquerque.
  12:52pm joe:

Someone has it out for me I didn't get my Kraftwerk tickets and then when I went to get my Krautwerk tribute tickets they were sold out as well.
  12:55pm ndbob:

Pachuco Boogie is a great collection
  12:55pm Doug S.:

I've had a long-running love affair with anyone who pronounces boogie "BOO-gie." Pretty much 98% of Western Swing dudes and Southern country blues dudes. I'm full of love.
  12:56pm joe:

I have become hypnotized by the ani gif.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm charlie:

"Say, this doesn't look like Pismo Beach..."
  1:00pm joe:

It was the Soul Train Line
  1:02pm Gary Mitchell:

I like that BOO-gie pronunciation too, Doug. Also like how Western singers put the H in "why" at the beginning of the word... H-why.
  1:03pm Dan in Seattle:

Like Axl Rose, Charlie, I think you should reject induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. (First noteworthy thing he's done IMHO.)
  1:04pm Doug S.:

That is whilarious, Gary.
  1:04pm listener james from westwood:

good thursday all and hello charlie! bit delayed but happy to be here!
  1:05pm glenn:

uh, i would count this as 1,2 1,2 1,2 1,2.
  1:10pm ndbob:

welcome James!
  1:11pm Gary Mitchell:

this baccara record was in the guiness book of records for years
  1:11pm glenn:

where's wendy? http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/travel/destinations/travel-united-states/newyork/a-cheese-lovers-tour-of-new-york/article2398949/
  1:11pm rosho:

12 3 streams on the front page. Boogie boogie boogie.
  1:12pm northguineahills:

I'm not always the disco type, but this Baccara track burns the dancefloor.
  1:14pm still b/p:

16...I say, I say 16 million copies of that Baccara single sold!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16pm charlie:

make that 16,000,001
  1:18pm Michael:

Don't want to but gotta boogie off to a meeting. A high level meeting. ;)
Wonderful show charlie - I'll finish it later. A Buh-bye all!
  1:22pm Wendy del Formaggio:

glenn, I'm in Vermont! :-)
  1:23pm glenn:

oh, and also - happy national grilled cheese day.
  1:26pm ndbob:

ah - grilled cheese was my moms favorite lunch
  1:26pm Brian in UK:

Hello Charlie, do you find the click on Mona Lisa follows you around the room?

Our dogs favourite composer. Why Bach!!
  1:27pm still b/p:

I have only a few grilled cheese sandwiches a year, but each one makes me soooo happy.
  1:28pm Brian in UK:

Eadweard Muybridge killed his wifes' lover & got off on the grounds that he was right to do so or some such clap trap.
  1:31pm listener james from westwood:

this tune always makes me think of the old milford plaza ad that used to air in the nyc market.
  1:33pm Vicki:

  1:33pm still b/p:

The massive production number with this music in Gold Diggers of 1935 makes as happy as, but more excited than, a grilled cheese sandwich.
  1:33pm listener james from westwood:

while i worked in nyc, i actually heard two folks passing the milford plaza on 8th in the city sing "the milford plaza is the lul-la-by of all broadway!" and give a little soft shoe, but their footwork was NOWHERE as good as this.
  1:36pm listener 108365 from bushwood, maryland:

Now I want to hear Otis Spann when he rasps "this is MY-Y-Y boogie" at the intro to Spann's Boogie
  1:39pm Brian in UK:

She just never misses a beat, love her hair. Oh to be in Brobdingnag.
  1:40pm Wendy del Formaggio:

What the hell is a cowsill anyway? I've heard of cowlicks and cowbells, but cowsills? I think they made it up.
  1:41pm Gary Mitchell:

Blame it on their father, Bud Cowsill.
  1:41pm ndbob:

family name
  1:42pm Doug S.:

Grilled Cheesus: http://kck.st/tPx5W9
  1:45pm listener james from westwood:

cowsills are where cows put cowpies to cool off.

lol, james
  1:45pm Brian in UK:

Baby 'Bel' Cheesus
  1:49pm still b/p:

Pieces of the True Crust are venerated by devoted pilgrims.
  1:51pm listener james from westwood:

be beyou beyou boo bop bop
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm charlie:

I just added a few more animated gifs of wife's-lover-murdering-in-duel world famous stop-motion photographer Eadweard Muybridge on the playlist.
  1:58pm ndbob:

excellent show Charlie!
  1:59pm kat330:

Chopin? I hear "Honeysuckle Rose" in this! Great show, listening all along, Charlie, just away from keyboard! :)
  1:59pm listener james from westwood:

horse movie >>>>>> all of the transformers movies.
  1:59pm Gary Mitchell:

enervating set today
  2:00pm listener james from westwood:

those descending 5 notes sound like the close of the parks & rec theme.
  2:01pm listener james from westwood:

glad i was able to catch half of the program; will refresh the archive link until it's up so i can hear hour 1! enjoy the weekend, charlie!
  2:03pm Vicki:

many thanks!
