Avatar 9:14am pierre:

many reasons, well one being that I tried to make WFMU listened to my new (soon old) workplace… and those narrow minded people just wanted gypsy jazz played, and some consensual music… I tried, I tried, but I failed.

So I decided to sacrifice my sociality and take a headphone, and now i'm more than happy. I'm finally amongst friends, family, great curious people.

I feel like a plant having water again.

I'll be around way more from now on.

@Lemon Kittens: great name! haven't heard the band yet.

@Ken: the moment I read the phrase "most maudlin" I flashed immediately on "Alone Again Naturally" by one "Gilbert O'Sullivan" (Oddly jovial moniker.) I'm working on identifying something equally maudlin but more WFMU-friendly. If I have any luck, I'll post it

@Fofo/Sam : Problem is, yeah, I've tried everything, but absolutely no one will give it a chance for more than 10min.

Now my personal saying for wfmu is "if you don't like it…wait" this radio has its ways of making something on your brain. But those people are way to stuck into one single pattern of thoughts, which is "music should make everyone happy" "and being consensual"… looking at that I'm thinking, well, it's might be better that way. I'm keeping the lovely radio for me.

  10:27am Michael:

@SSS: As I heard it told by Seeger in an interview, he and friends really wished we would get involved in the Second World War, but until the Nazis invaded the Soviet Union the Party told the not to advocate for that. They even, evidently, created an album (literally--78s) of songs against our intervention, but didn't release it before the invasion, at which point they all said 'Thank God.' and wrote and released a bunch of pro intervention songs.

The experience may have marked the start of his drift away from the Party, slowed by blacklisting but accelerated by Khrschev's revelations.

Is the mayor of Jersey City a big Broncos fan? NPR said as much. Then again, NPR should never talk about sports because it always comes off as overcompensating. Except for DeFord.

@fleep I remember going with my mom to the meat dealer, a butcher that stored your personal meat in his freezer. We had a cow butchered and would go into the meat vault and get what we needed for the meal. Very very cold room. Shelves upon shelves of other peoples meat.

@whooda: still pondering this gentleman who "stored your meat in his personal freezer"

@ Michael : thanks for clarifying that Seeger & Co. did not really oppose US entry into WWII, rather were put in a conflicted position by their ties to The Party. The real opposition at the time came from conservatives; the Republicans in congress successfully blocked US engagement in the defense of Europe from their pals the Nazis. Pearl Harbor broke that logjam, or we would have stayed out until too late.
Which should be remembered every time Republican candidates for office claim theirs is the party that's been "strong on defense"
