I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

I'd like a version of this where the reader lists all the commentors from a typical WFMU playlist board.

kenzo, please add autocorrect to kenzoDB, so i can blame it

that guy is always waiting in the wings to correct people
  Fri. 3/28/14 1:56pm that guy:

always appreciate your show, Bryce. by the way - there's a piece you've played that Ashley performs on as vocalist - he reads from a buddhist text, i think ... no his composition, tho. does that ring any bells? i'd love to find out what it is.
Avatar Fri. 3/28/14 1:58pm chocolate monk:

aw man,, i could listen to Rabs voice for a fucking age...
Avatar Fri. 3/28/14 1:59pm Bryce:

yeah! that's a piece by eliane radigue, "mila's journey inspired by a dream", based on Milarepa.

alternates between the tibetan, intoned by lama kunga rinpoche, and the translation, robert ashletized.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/28/14 2:14pm Carmichael:

Someone played that Radigue piece last week. Bryce, was it you? Or maybe Kurt G?
Avatar Fri. 3/28/14 2:16pm Bryce:

kurt, maybe? but i will too, just to be sure.
  Fri. 3/28/14 2:18pm Lustre:

Fabio maybe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/28/14 2:18pm Carmichael:

It was the Adnos II piece, Bryce. You played it on March 7, according to the super-secret link to the FMU page at the top of your page.
Avatar Fri. 3/28/14 2:19pm northguineahills:

Kurt played this 13 months ago.

Howdy friends! This is a swell track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/28/14 2:31pm steve:

hey Bryce. never felt like i "got" Ashley's Perfect Lives and related spoken word oriented work until just now. pretty incredible once you get under the spell.

also does anyone remember... do i recall correctly Kurt interviewed RA and then did his "pop songs picked by avant garde musicians" segment and Ashley chose a new commercial pop country song that baffled everyone?
Avatar Fri. 3/28/14 2:33pm Bryce:

oh yeah! shit, that was a couple years ago.

Avatar Fri. 3/28/14 2:34pm drewo:

Thanks Bryce. This is wonderful. My wife arranged for nursing care for Bob Ashley at his home in Manhattan during the last months of his life. The nurses all loved him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/28/14 2:38pm common:

that's sweet, drewo.
Avatar Fri. 3/28/14 2:40pm Bryce:

wow, drewo, that's lovely.

Dude's helping me to get my head together, man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/28/14 2:50pm Parq:

I've been finding something very familiar about Robert Ashley's voice, and it finally occurred to me that I'd seen his collaboration with pianist 'Blue' Gene Tyranny on a video opera at the Kitchen in the early 80s. It took some googling, but I found the details here:
  Fri. 3/28/14 2:50pm Bert Kombs:

I don't know. I thought I was 'cutting edge." I like Coldplay, The Fray, Maroon5. And I'm not young. But this? This is just crazy music. I am very uncomfortable over here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/28/14 2:51pm Cheri Pi:

thanks for this killer tribute set Bryce.
Avatar Fri. 3/28/14 2:55pm Bryce:
