I'm ashamed to admit this, but that Boston song is glorious.
Avatar    Thu. 5/2/13 12:12pm listener james from westwood:

wasn't there some allegation that the famous riff from "teen spirit" borrowed from the riff in "more than a feeling"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/2/13 12:12pm Ike:

Mise, I believe it's wfmu.org...

Now you're cookin' with gas, Charlie!
Avatar    Thu. 5/2/13 12:16pm Charlie:

James, dunno if it was a legal allegation, but the spirit, movement, and rhythm of the chord change is the same.
And yes, that is the correct pop-up player link, Ike.

But then, people said the same thing about "More Than A Feeling" and "Louie Louie", so there you go -- 2 degrees of separation between "Teen Spirit" and "Louie Louie".
Avatar Thu. 5/2/13 12:20pm still b/p:

I was soon tired of the standard grinding repetition, but for some reason I remember where I was when I heard the Boston debut single on WBCN: driving outside Boston off Route 128 on Route 138 in Milton on a spring day. Funny how an undramatic tick sticks here and there.

@Carmichael - everything under "live audio streams" brings you to the Main FMU stream....am I looking in the right place?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/2/13 12:23pm mise en place:

(and the "click HERE to listen LIVE during this show" is no good for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/2/13 12:25pm Carmichael:

@mise: you are correct, that only works for iTunes.

Ike, how did you find that link?

Carm, I think Doug mentioned that GtDR Web player once (and no, it's not listed to the left). At some point, the GtD playlist templates will apparently include it.

Is this phase 2 of L'Histoire Du Soldat?
Avatar    Thu. 5/2/13 12:32pm Jeff Golick:

FWIW, I think Doug has made a (recent) point of including the flash player link is his pre-show email announcements. AND I PRESUME WE'RE ALL GETTING THOSE?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/2/13 12:35pm Ike:

But, Carm, to be pedantic, the "click here to listen LIVE" link for GtDR is not just for iTunes. (Yuck! PC version is such a swollen, clumsy resource hog, WHY so popular? UGGH.) It also works in Winamp, VLC, and the tiny, versatile Foobar. No need to crash your PC.
Avatar    Thu. 5/2/13 12:35pm Charlie:

I've been including the link in my e-mails as well, Jeff.
  Thu. 5/2/13 12:36pm Tower:

Love the Reuben and the Jets reference Mr. James.
Avatar Thu. 5/2/13 12:36pm Doug Schulkind:

Kenzo is at work right now on an update to the basic playlist page. All the streaming shows will have links to only their stream for listening. The page will also automatically generate a listen link to the pop-up player.

What's more, the pop-up player is getting an update, too. The player for the Drummer Stream will be so identified (and not just say "WFMU" and it will also show the artist/song info, just like iTunes, Winamp and the mobile apps!

These improvements are just around the corner.

@Doug Drumsum: I don't know about anybody else, but I find the pop-up can be unstable, and has to be restarted frequently. Assuming this is not unique to me, you ought to let Kenzo know.

That's curious. I've left the pop-up player on for extended stretches and never had a problem. I will use it more ofter and see what I see.
