Listener comments!

  9:06pm Destroit:

Hello Bethany and everyone. Three hours. I'm looking forward to this.
  9:07pm melissa:

Love your show Bethany! You will be missed this summer. Please come back!
  9:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hello, hockey fans. Devils in a 0-3 hole after one period. They need some darn goals to keep it going.
  9:10pm Parq:

Thought for a second I was indulging in wishful thinking when I heard your voice. Let's everybody make this one to remember.
  9:10pm G:

Let 'er rip!
  9:14pm Rueandfork:

So very bittersweet... Extended player, but the last?
  9:15pm Richard from Venezuela:

Thanks for this special show Bethany. all the good wishes to you.
Avatar 9:17pm bethany:

Hi everyone! So glad to be here tonight, it's like a bonus round!!
  9:19pm G:

It's like nearly an extra month of the show :-)
  9:22pm melissa:

So happy that I am home tonight to listen.
  9:23pm pierre:

Bonsoir Betany Ryker,
This is very sweet music to listen to during work night, merci !
  9:34pm G:

Who bumped the turntable? Or was it the stream hiccuping? Nah, sounded like stylus hopping, to someone like me who's made it hop many a time! :-)
  9:53pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Tonight's show should be named AAA1320.
  10:01pm PJ:

I'd swear I heard motifs from this Rachmaninoff piece being used to score a silent movie or serial - Fantomas, perhaps? Or maybe Judex.
  10:14pm Destroit:

Still having fun listening. Big novice to this genre, time is flying in a good way
  10:16pm 12539:

That drum knocked off my Mahler glasses.
  10:26pm Julie:

Bethany Bethany! Going out with a bang for summer!
  10:28pm Irwin:

About time WFMU displayed some CLASS. Leave it to the bullpen.
Avatar 10:29pm ?:

Irwin, are we engaging in a class war?!?
Avatar 10:32pm j4ff:

Love the show, will miss you!
  10:33pm Parq:

P.J, speaking strictly for myself, a lot of the more complex and dramatic pieces aired by Miss Bethany sound like they are movie music, or should be.
  10:35pm Galganga:

Fantastic piece
  10:36pm ranjit:

Brass war!
  10:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Aren't we supposed to be living in the new classless society of the future?
  10:45pm Parq:

K from HP, I meet a whole lot of people nowadays who are pretty thoroughly classless.
  10:46pm Ken From Hyde Park:

No, wait...it's supposed to be a new cashless society of the future.
  10:54pm ranjit:

ooh, theremin!
  10:58pm Irwin:

theremin = squirrel
  10:59pm ?:

Happy trails, Bethany. Come back soon. Fmu is always nicer when you are on the air!
  11:01pm ranjit:

theremin = badger? http://www.nervoussquirrel.com/badgermin.html
  11:03pm ?:

anyone else having trouble with FM reception?
  11:04pm Droll:

Ranjit, Nice find, I can't wait to see what Irwin pulls up.
. o O (and I already miss Bethany)
  11:06pm Ike:

@anonymous@11:30, FM reception is good here... but I'm only a few towns over from the transmitter.
  11:10pm Ike:

Oops, that was @11:03, not @11:30. Responding to future comments is impossible. ...OR IS IT?
  11:10pm G:

I already answered that :-)
  11:12pm ranjit:

Wow, i think i like the marching band version even more than the original Short Ride.
Avatar 11:17pm bethany:

So close, Ranjit...but that wasn't just and marching band, because it was the Cadets of Bergen County Drum and Bugle Corps! No woodwinds needed!
  11:19pm ?:

Port and cigars in the war room
  11:19pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Sad news - The Hooterville World Guardian reports that Sam Drucker has passed away. I trust that Station Manager Ken will play a Green Acres set on his next show.
  11:21pm ?:

Thanks Ike, i think my antenna may have taken a fall off the motor and i just don't feel like climbing up there tonight.
  11:28pm ?:

  11:32pm Skirkie:

Gah! I forgot this was on until now.
  11:36pm Droll:

Uncanny -- I bought an Arvo Pärt CD with this version of Fratres on it when I visited NYC for the FMU marathon in March... Bethany spying on me?
  11:38pm Skirkie:

Oh man, this playlist. I'll listen back to the rest of this for sure.
  11:53pm Joe Mulligan:

I could listen to 100 covers of that Aphex twin track.. Druqks was so bi-polar that I made cassettes with the happy songs on one side
  11:53pm 12539:

Wunderbar. Thank you. take care, and come back soon!
  11:55pm Rick:

And everything!
Avatar 11:58pm bethany:

thank you all for tuning in and sharing your time! keep in touch!!
  11:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hope to hear more A440 in the future. Have a fun summer in the upstate.
  12:00am Rynac:

Does the Cyclone roller coaster count as a "Short Ride in a Fast Machine"?
  4:04pm Danne D:

Missed out on this the first time :( will have to check out the archives. Have a great summer Bethany :) Hopefully you'll sneak down for a few other fill-ins
  7:37am other david:
