Ok, so I'm working on this theme show for next Wednesday. It's a not-in-the-rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame theme. I've decided that it won't be based on who I think *should* be in a well-run hall...but rather, artists that a reasonably engaged music fan that doesn't pay significant attention to the Hall or its politics could reasonably be surprised to learn *aren't* in the Hall.

Does that make sense?

Hey Doug. Just read your BOTB post about Google Reader. You originally turned me on to using that and I was bummed when I heard the news a couple weeks ago too. I haven't had a chance to start looking for other options, but besides Feedly, Flipboard is also one to consider (according to Marketplace report I heard). Thanks for the insight on Feedly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25am Doug Schulkind:

So far my only disappointment with Feedly is that it's not Reader. Mostly a positive experience, so far. (I love that it can import all your saved items from Google.) I will poke around with Flipboard. Thanks!
Avatar 9:25am still b/p:

I do use the Flash sometimes, but usually the ridiculously groggy boggy start-up and the delay while anti-virus software does its check are what make the waiting so gnashy waily and long.

Does MediaFire not work any longer or is it just for the Phongsi Woranut album that it is broke?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28am Doug Schulkind:

Mediafire in general still works, but as a company, it has gotten extremely skittish and is taking down links to anything that it thinks may be a copyright infringement or for which there has been a complaint.

Which page are you trying to get that Phongsi from?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29am Uncle Michael:

@ndbob: Good. I was hoping it did.

Avatar 10:29am Parq:

I still remember riding in a car with my daughter on a Saturday afternoon. She had just gotten old enough to sit in the front seat. I had Terre T on the radio. She asked me whose show it was and I told her. She gazed at the radio thoughtfully for a few secs, and then sat forward and turned up the volume. *That's* my girl!
Avatar 10:30am Parq:

She's run with a comic book/gaming crowd for years now, and that informs her current listening. The stuff that Nick the Bard does is right up her alley.

@Brian: Did you write that in 1985? Because to the extent that there still *is* a music business, it's gone almost totally back to a singles economy. It's all about the iTunes.

I will agree that the skill at manipulating and exploiting young music buyers has only increased but it's not new. Beiber is just the latest New Kid On The Block that's about to become totally played out. He's not his own fault.

man, I'm uppity today.

@Uncle Michael
It is no longer all about iTunes. With the under-20 crowd, now it is all about YouTube. That is where my kid and all of her friends get 100% of their music. (We gave Lincoln a $25 iTunes gift card for Xmas and she hasn't touched it.)

Facebook, what's that?
Avatar 11:09am Parq:

Hug, it's this thing they came up with so that middle aged people can show each other viral JPEGs that their kids first saw a year or two earlier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am Uncle Michael:

@Doug: That's interesting. They sit and watch Youtube? They watch it on their phones? Is the playlist dead? Is this like when we were kids, playing 45s? One song at a time...not turning on music and going about our business?

If memory serves, Chief Commander was one of the first African sounds I heard around the mid 70s, still sounds great. Relentless, in a kind of relaxed way.

UM, worse than that (and no less than Adam Gopnik has noted this), they've turned their backs on our quest for the best high fidelity speakers and listen to music on tinny little mini-speakers wired into the players.

Whoops, hi Uncka Mike, as well!

Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:17am Brian in UK:

Doug, what are you calling todays show. 'the aging farts try to remember'

@parq where do you get the 'our' in the search. Always had crap speakers. All the good music was recorded on less than 4 track.
Avatar 11:17am ndbob:

great one here Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18am Doug Schulkind:

I've got that Gopnik piece sitting right here. We bought our daughter a really nice external, wireless speaker for her iPad—and she never uses it. She doesn't "get" making the music sound better. I've tried to explain that it's better louder, but even that Trojan Horse argument didn't work. Sigh.
Avatar 11:19am Parq:

Hah. Come to think of it, I listened to all my old grade-school 45s on a crappy record player the size of a portable typewriter.

Doug, I know all the words to that song. Did the same thing at Christmas. She smiled all over and even her boyfriend commented on what great speakers they were. The box remains unopened.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22am Uncle Michael:

Find the craziest, audiophile dealership in P-burgh. Take her favorite song...and let her hear it on a quarter-million dollar system in a perfect listening room. Then tell her that she'll never have that...but there's a lot of room between her computer speakers and that listening room. People do need to know what good audio sounds like. They also need not to embrace the $1000 power cord craziness...but that's another story.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:22am Brian in UK:

Lovin' the mix today Doug. Keeps us on our metaphorical toes.

Hello Carmichael.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22am Doug Schulkind:

I must admit, Carmichael, every time I see your name, I think "Carm." Then I think of Carmella Soprano. Not a bad association, really. Me and the wife just started watching the Sopranos again from the beginning and you know what? It holds up amazingly well.
Avatar 11:22am glenn:

parq, it has long been my contention that once most of us can afford that amazing sound system of our dreams that our hearing has deteriorated to the point where we can no longer hear most of the notes anyway.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:23am Brian in UK:

Keep Carm and play another record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am Lewis:

I had been saving for a pair of Axiom speakers, but ended up with a decent pair of Polk RT3 from craigslist. Now gonna buy a zoom h4n with the speaker money (@glenn point well taken)

My speakers are called IMF. 30 years old. Not to be confused with that agency in DC.

@doug - is that a comment list sight gag?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25am Doug Schulkind:

I still have a set of Advent speakers from 1979 that produce a magnificent sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25am Uncle Michael:

I always listen to the best sound available in a given context...because the music matters most. On a home, well...I'm listening to this show through a pretty decent setup. My ears have held up really well, especially, considering.

I listen at work on a $30 pair of Altec puter speakers that sound better than any $100 puter speaker set up I've ever owned. Sometimes it's just luck.

Avatar 11:35am glenn:

i have two sets of missions. the little bookshelf units are way, way better than the floor units. that said, the quality of the speakers is meaningless if you're driving them from a 15$ amplifier. i also disagree with uncle michael to some extent. you don't need 1000$$ metre cable, but the 10$ metre cable does make a big difference over lamp cord.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37am Carmichael:

Doug, you can call me Carm anytime. Funny, that name brings to my mind Carmine Raguzo from Laverne & Shirley. Although I might look good in spats and a fedora.

@Glenn, in my radio studio a set of '80s vintage Mission boohshelves are my primary listening speakers. Not the near-field monitors but just for the hanging around and listening speakers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42am Carmichael:

After years of Bose bookshelf speakers, I moved to a new house and shelled out an assload of coin for a 6.1 surround system and HDTV. Best decision I ever made, at least musically.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49am Doug Schulkind:

Mr. Matavire was charged with rape, a crime for which he eventually did jail time. (Only two years.) This song, released before the trial is mocking the charges. Like I said, DISGUSTING.
