Digging deeper, the movie made of Goldman's MAGIC was directed by Richard Attenborough, and stars Anthony Hopkins, Ann-Margaret, Burgess Meredith, and David Ogden Stiers. Oh, 1978! You slay me.

Avatar 10:10am still b/p:

Connection blues & breaks -- My phone cord to the DSL modem has been way toooo long, the tech support people insist, and the cause of sputtery gummy troubles. So a shorter one for the moment has my computer and telephone placed in unlikely spots with cables stretched out east and west across two rooms to jack and outlets, and I'm good 'n likely to trip and break a leg today - an OOF! Moo listener -- and damage the gear before I get a longer ethernet cable later, 'cuz using a long-ass one of those is supposed to be fine.

Geez, appears I've missed a boatload of brilliant blues. :, That makes me a loser thrice per Charlie's Jan. 10th playlist this week. I've now had two opportunities to win Leonard Cohen tix by phone, but wasn't the winning caller either time. [this morning's giveaway is why I'm late here, btw]

Yes, the avatars starting posting during Julie's show, btw 5:21 and 5:26 a.m. Other david proudly stratled both sides of the divide!

@kat: The playlist avatars, not the one you could upload once registration began. Notice how everything moved right to fit the avatar space in.

@Doug: The Jan. 4th date is when I've seen the first avatars of the beta testers show up. Such as Bryce's Jan. 4th playlist. IOW, Kenzo took everything back to the point you registered as a beta tester.

Let this set last till dawn ! ( here )

Ah so. So the avatars popped up retroactively then. I only saw the thing go public yesterday. (I'm always the last to know.)

Sounds good! Say, did you know this kind of music is now on regular FM in D.C. 24/7? WAMU did something right for a change and put their bluegrass channel on the air (just a translator, but regular FM nonetheless). It ain't no FMU, but it's better than nothing if you're driving with no Internet in D.C.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31am Matt from Springfield:

I like Ruth Minnikin! And along with this Morrison & West, seems like two fantastic new albums!
And thanks Doug!

Actually, I see Doug's and my avatars on this Drummersome of Jan 4th, too. [that was my first test of being logged into my account]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33am Matt from Springfield:

Hey Ike!
My Subaru is newer, and has an HD Radio, so I preset the high quality 88.5-2 bluegrass channel. But before I got that car and drove around in my old Nissan, I did find the lower power FM repeater and listened on occasion.

@Parq: I love Gahan Wilson! After the fact last week, I thought how appropriate it would have been to post a link to one of my fave Wilson cartoons (if I could have found it): A sullen-looking couple seated on a train (or subway). Outside their window you see a sign pointing in the direction they're traveling that reads "Nowhere."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40am Ike:

@Matt, oh, I thought it was new. Well, that tells you how often I get into D.C. -- not very often. So is the signal range for 88.5-HD2 good? I've heard some HD stations don't reach very far.

Speaking of "new ones," <plug alert>
D:O Radio on Monday will be part 1 of our 2-part "2012 faves" programming. There was just that much good music released last year. Or so we thought. Hope you can drop by between noon and 3pm EST! Doug will be manning the playlist, if that's any incentive. </end plug>

Even if I can't seem to win their ticket giveaways, we are blessed with a pretty fine public radio system in Louisville area. The AA frequency (WFPK) has a decent playlist and WFPL has all the usual BBC news and NPR programming, and WUOL has classical music.

@Kat330: Have you seen the somewhat common carnival automata called Laughin' Sal? It's really horrifying. It's a mechanical, redheaded chubby lady with a really scary sounding laugh track/recording.. I think she's sometimes dressed up like a (1930's) Hillbilly lady.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59am Doug Schulkind:

Thanks for Brian in Snowland for reminding me to listen to this majestic voice more often...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59am Matt from Springfield:

Kenzo, kudos on the C64 command screen!

The new system is going great, as well! The only thing to point out, is the sometimes jarring color of registered users names against certain playlist backgrounds. Is there any way for hosts to choose the color of their user name links? Some cases it would need to be a different color than their existing scheme but to blend in better.

Love this Diarra. Is there a year on it, Doug?
Avatar 12:02pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Matt: Those links are coming up in the link color that is specified in that playlist color combo. So, technically, DJ's can control it, if they realize to do so. (Some DJ's specify ONLY a background color and no link colors, which leads to ambiguous link colors.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm Matt from Springfield:

Have a good weekend kat, and everyone else!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:04pm Doug Schulkind:

I have only a digital copy. No liner notes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:04pm Matt from Springfield:

@Kenzo: Thanks! I'll contact DJs for whom their new user color doesn't sync with their overall scheme and suggest a more suitable color (I'm a cartographer, so I know whereof I speak ;)
Keep up the great work!
