Nice start for a Sunday night... ends of weekends are always a little blue...

EST is now Nov to March. They keep shortening it. Daylight time used to only be during the summer, and now runs most of the year (March to Nov.), because most people work 9-5 and want light in the evening. They don't know or care if it's light at 5AM in the summer, they want an hour of that morning light shifted into the evening when they're awake and off work...

Standard Time is when it is not Daylight Savings Time so if you just say "Eastern Time" it will be the applicable time (Standard or Daylight Savings)

"Standard" time is 3 months long. The non-standard part is 9 months long. Congress decides this, so it should seem obvious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm

I always just say/write Eastern time. You know how many times in online work I've seen people forget whether they actually want/need EST or EDT for months at a time?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38pm

Yes, Droll, Daylight Saving (singular) Time started out 100 years ago as "summer time". It keeps expanding because of many office workers wanting it, or the government sees it (accurately or not) as an energy-saving thing. In England, they call standard time "winter time", which would make much more sense as a term here in the US these days. :-)
fred von helsing:

cool stuff

Computerstuff that read invites and automagicaly schedule them do require all the arcane notation to be correct.
. o O ( Speaking of computers, the one in my oven appears to be malfunctioning... dinner needs attention, back soon )

the durutti column is one of those bands you hear far too rarely and you really can't hear enough of.
Andrew Waterloo:

The idea of DST is that you're aligning those who wake up with the clock with those who wake up with the sun

Why would you put a computer in the oven?
fred von helsing:

Nowadays DST is mainly so kids don't walk to school in the dark. Why not just move around school starting times ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm

Farmers hate the time change twice a year, AW, and that's why a few places in the US don't do it. (For ex., the whole state of AZ.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm

And on a mellotron you can only hold a note or chord for eight seconds max, because that's how long the tape snippet for each note was :-)
Avatar 9:55pm
Dave M.:

@G: Correct. 60 inches of tape at 7 1/2 ips!
Andrew Waterloo:

I wish Mello Tron was robot they sent into calm riots

Damnit! I missed the Mellotron part of the show?! Archives. for sure.
What makes Mellotron great is Lawrence Welk strings. It's an irreplaceable melancholy, Chamberlain can't compare. (That, and it's the instrument of choice for Prog)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm

Yep, you can always hear 70s mellotron players holding down sustained chords but making sure not to let them go on *too* long :-)
Avatar 9:57pm
Dave M.:

@Droll: Just one song, but it did have a bunch of Mellotrons on it.
Avatar 9:58pm
Dave M.:

There's an iPhone app called Ellatron where you can get sounds just like a Mellotron. It's hard to play, though. There may be better ones out there.
fred von helsing:

@andrew LOL
fred von helsing:

you wouldn't consider moving your show to a more europe-friendly time would you ? :)
Avatar 10:18pm
Dave M.:

@fvh: It's out of my hands, unfortunately. It's not all that NY-friendly either.

Come on, fred, it's only about 4:15AM on the continent hahaha

archives - check! it's already 525 over here (hellsinki)

This isn't dead air, it's life support air :-)

@G: I thought I was so cool about it that no one would even notice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm

Uh huh, it worked!

I'm dependent on the archives, but somehow shows on archive seem less like radio and more like a mix tape with someone talking over it.
More than once I freaked out at the station ID because I thought it was the top of the hour but it wasn't.
The comments are like forgotten graffiti, adding to it is like screaming in space nobody will hear.

Heh, I thought this was going to be a Dear Prudence cover!
Avatar 10:31pm
Dave M.:

@G: I knew it!
fred von helsing:

It's cool that usually the comments make little sense after an FMU show. They're so bound up with the mood of the show and the particular songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm

@Droll: I listen to archives if the show topic or focus makes me. Even if I don't listen to every archive, I check out the playlist for interesting items.
Avatar 10:34pm
Dave M.:

I have to confess that I like to listen live. But there are always shows that are hard to hear in real time. For me it's the 3-6 a.m. shows.
Avatar 10:36pm
Dave M.:

You may not know this, but if someone posts a comment to the playlist after the show's over, the DJ automatically gets an email. So we see every one of those comments
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm

Often the comments on a show I missed tell me which song(s) to make sure to find and listen to inside the show, if I don't have time to listen to the whole archive.

It's always easy to tell if particular comments on an archived show are about the music that's playing, the mic break, things the music reminded people of, reactions to earlier comments, etc. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm

If you missed mellotron earlier, listen up. 1969 mellotron.

DM, That must be a great random fun generator!

I love the ephemeral nano-blogging unthreaded comments, but I also hope it matures into something where there's some long-term continuity to it. Maybe that just means we get accounts so we can see responses to our comments someday, too.

. o O ( I can never say enough kind things about KC )
cubicle carl:

I think the tail end of the Crimson tune is what is officially known as noodling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm

The whole instrumental part was supposedly 100% improvisation. Fripp trimmed out a couple of minutes of it (including the infamous "Surrey with the Fringe" quotation) in a recent remaster, but left the full 1969 version as a bonus track.
Avatar 10:50pm
Dave M.:

The tough part will be hitting the stop button just before "In the Court of the Crimson King" starts. It's pretty tight.

CC, One man's noodling is another man's filler. I say 1) Thankfully an album side is no more than 23 minutes long, limiting damage (unless you're Yes), and 2) I love KC (especially the Belew era)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm

The flute notes in the ballad were mellotron, but I'm not sure there was mellotron in the improv...
Avatar 10:57pm
Dave M.:

Right, there's some at the beginning, but I don't think there's any during the long instrumental section.
Avatar 10:58pm
Dave M.:

There's so much of it on the rest of the record...

DJ Shadow .... that beat sounds familiar
George of Troy:

Hiya Dave. Made it in for the final third, happy to be basking in the sounds.

Hey, George. Welcome.
Deep Curtains:

Do you like The Necks?
Avatar 11:45pm
Dave M.:

I do. I played them on my show just a week or two ago.
