Hi Everybody! Glad to have you here for an afternoon of tunes.

Yay! Nice to welcome my lunch here at the apartment, then also escort me all the way to the studio in the car, before giving lessons for 6 hrs.

Hi everyone, happy Monday.
Avatar 12:19pm Mdurek:

That background music HAS to be a Casio SK1 Keyboard
Avatar 12:20pm Mdurek:

OH, thought it was background bc I heard it recently.
  12:22pm don d:

Individually, Wendy and Bonnie Flower still involved in music...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm mariano:

The melody of this FC is like that Martin Carthy song you played a while back, Bonny Woodhall, I think. Very nice.
Avatar 12:26pm kat330:

Hello, Irene! Lovely Ambiguity -- sort of like the entrance of Spring has been.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:28pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Is this right, snow forecast in the New York area?
Avatar 12:29pm kat330:

Even a chance of it -- unlikely though -- here in southern Indiana, Sean. Sure hope the season changes over more fully before your visit over here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm mariano:

@Sean: we're supposed to see a flurry tomorrow, supposedly. Still unseasonably cold.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Thanks Irene, also goat ticket to see Tune Yards in Bristol in july
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm Irene Trudel:

Yep Sean-- Snow tonight into tomorrow. Possibly 1-3 inches. I've had enough! :(
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Andrew Waterloo:

Same here.. few days of cold and snow then well above freezing.
  12:54pm Peter K.:

Hey Irene, I just learned that today is Nick Lowe's 65th birthday. Any room for him on today's playlist?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm mariano:

It's too bad about the snow, Saturday in Brooklyn was kind of pleasant, hadn't been on my bike in weeks. Now it's back to huddling in a cave for a while longer, looks like.
  12:57pm david from ks:

,,,absolutely no-not-none chance of water from sky here in ks,,, we`re goin for broke !
Avatar 1:01pm kat330:

Ah, yes, Mr. Lowe's a fellow Ram. Happy 65th, Nick!
Avatar 1:02pm Mdurek:

Snow, good time for a beer, and movie inside. It would be nice to get more vitamin D without getting chilly though..from the sun, natural style
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:04pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Mdurek, you read my mind, time for a couple of cold ones
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:05pm Sean in Bristol UK:

I should imagine the plethora of Kate Bush fans on the show have heard the earth shattering news
Avatar 1:10pm Mdurek:

@sean , I will join you later! when it's beer time East Coast NJ LOL
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:15pm Andrew Waterloo:

Happy Birthday Mike

Also, today is Carol Kaye's 79th.
  1:58pm Listening Out There:

Doug S, that's as in Carol Kaye, the Wrecking Crew bassist?
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:58pm Andrew Waterloo:

She's deserves some special recognition.
  2:01pm don d:

Any guesses who "Alana" is?
  2:01pm KP:

Did I miss who that is with Campilongo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Irene Trudel:

@don d and KP, I think that's Alana Amram. And Happy Birthday Carole Kaye!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Doug Schulkind:

Yup. Same Carol Kaye.
  2:07pm Mark:

Nice of you to feature some Carol Kaye. I just went to her Wikipedia page and it said she played 12-string acoustic guitar on the Mothers' "Freak Out" album. I can't think of what songs have 12-string on them. She said she played on a few tracks on "Absolutely Free," too, but quit because she found some of his lyrics offensive. She said he was good-natured and understood her feelings and they remained friends afterwards.
  2:07pm don d:

It is Alana Amram, who is at Knitting Factory tomorrow evening!
  2:11pm doca:

Hi you all, spring/fall is here and there.

@Irene: this song makes me miss Paul Motian.
@Doug: what happened to D:O radio?
  2:12pm Mark:

irene, I really like your show. You played some Ralph Towner a couple weeks ago, too. So nice.
Avatar 2:22pm kat330:

@Mike at 1:26: Been off-list taking care of some business -- and pleasure, which includes this apropos NYer cartoon for your note back about an hour ago: www.newyorker.com...
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Doug Schulkind:

D:O is in Italy this week. Back next week.
  2:25pm doca:

oh cool, i'm sure they'll bring cool stuff to play. thought they were banned from wfmu after failing the drug test, they had too few of it on their bloods.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Mike East:

@kat330 exactly how I feel sometimes.
Avatar 2:29pm kat330:

BTW, we did watch ILD yesterday. Didn't *hate* it, but some issues indeed, not least the cinematography -- so needlessly dark we thought.
  2:29pm don d:

This Bridget song brings to mind Judee Sill's "Lady-O"...
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Nick Drake, lovely
  2:30pm Mark:

Nick Drake was so cool...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm Mike East:

@kat330 - bummer about cinematography...not usually an issue with Coen Bros. How was Nebraska?
  2:34pm doca:

lovely nick drake. i wish i could go back in time for the first time i listened to his music.
Avatar 2:36pm kat330:

Cinematography was a B&W issue in NB. ;) It was fine, as was "Enough Said" and "Rush" -- yeah, a marathon of viewing.
Avatar 2:41pm kat330:

One of the best moments for me in ILD was with Sylvia Kauders (Llewyn's underperforming manager's secretary). And of course the cat. Every review talked about what a nasty d-wad Davis is, but not until near the end of the film, when he was drunk and heckling "Betty," did I think he behaved horribly or without good reason. The Carey Mulligan character kept cursing him, but she seemed equally at fault and at least as reprehensible. He's feckless, aimless and hapless, yes -- THOUGH few folks would jump through the hoops he did and genuinely care about getting a cat that had escaped through no fault of his back to his friend -- but it's also clear LD's endured a lot of sh*t already when the film begins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm Irene Trudel:

Pardon my ignorance-- ILD? Que es este?
Avatar 2:44pm kat330:

"Inside Llewyn Davis."
Avatar 2:47pm kat330:

Sorry for all the movie talk. Thanks for your lovely sounds this day, Irene.
And to all Rams having b'days between today and next Monday, Happy Birthday to youse!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Andrew Waterloo:

Movie talk is good... just wish I'd actually seen something lately so I could join in.
  2:52pm Ted:

Man, Judee Sill was the best. And shockingly unheard of by so many that should.
  2:53pm doca:

@kat330: that's fine for me, kat. i loved that movie, though it's the usual cohen brothers stuff. i liked that it shows in some way what the life of a pre-dylan folk singer was like in the 60s, i mean, all the great artists who were left behind some time of the folk revival for a talent that got beyond what everyone expected and how hard it was their lives. i found a parallel in thomas bernhard's "the loser" novel, though that one is way more bitter.
  2:54pm don d:

Sill's 2 albums released during her lifetime deserved a lot more attention; I believe she was the 1st female artist Geffen signed and when Joni Mitchell came along, Sill was pushed aside by Geffen.
  Swag For Life Member 2:56pm 12539:

Thanks, Irene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Irene Trudel:

@don d, Judee's story is a sad one. But great songs. I was only vaguely aware of her when those albums first came out, She deserved better.

Hey thanks for tuning in everyone! Catch you all next week.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Wonderful show, thank you, Irene
