good day, all
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:11pm Carmichael:

I did not hear Giant Man. There's a bunch of Italians talking, or is it Firesign Theatre?
  3:12pm r i s k y:

Hey Fabio! It was a real joy meeting you outside the Swans show. We're tuned in here, glued to the radio like every Thursday. You oughtn't be so modest about your show IT'S FRIGGIN BRILLIANT! Cheers

Oh Giant Man played alright--there'd be something seriously wrong if we didn't hear that!
Avatar 🎸 3:13pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

[somewhere in there is a clicky-star that's gonna PAY for what it's doing to my head.]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm common:

same here, rev. well said.
Avatar 3:14pm Sem Chumbo:

@Rev.Turnip: glued, therefore you cannot become unstuck in time.
Good planning. Hello, Fabio, and Failures far and wide.

Then there is something seriously wrong with me. Carry on.

Fabio, your set thus far is transportive... failure, take me away!

Failure to eat lunch. See yous all in a while.
Avatar 3:38pm Cecile:

what did you do to piss off Gen Ken, Fabio? He should be on your show!
Avatar 3:47pm Cecile:

just kidding! FMU has to spread the Gen Ken love around.

Fabio, are any of these trippy Italian releases reissues?
  3:47pm gurn blarnsen:

This is like the Ligeti stuff from 2001, on additional drugs.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm common:

i totally agree, vp!
Avatar 3:57pm Cecile:

Avatar 3:57pm d¢ pät:

I dunno...I think Thursdays could use a little more pizzazz...
Avatar 3:58pm d¢ pät:

...and maybe fewer notes...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm DCE:

everyday could use a little more pizza. This is perfectly haunting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Stanley:

Nuthin beatsa pieca pizza
Avatar 4:01pm V Priceless:

haha...more pizza!
Avatar 4:02pm Cecile:

Language Removal Services reminds me of Love Removal Machine.
Avatar 4:02pm Cecile:

what an unsexy song about trying to be sexy. Bravo, Cult!
Avatar 4:02pm V Priceless:

Fabio..that "Devil Is A Flying Machine" piece that Toby Dammit played...still freakin' one the craziest things I have ever heard!
Avatar 4:03pm Cecile:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm DCE:

wait...what do all these folks have in common?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm DCE:

haha, "bite her beak". Maybe I will.
Avatar 4:06pm Cecile:

this sounds like a freaky movie.
Avatar 4:07pm V Priceless:

@ Cecile - ROTFL at that Love/Language Removal Machine/Services cross-reference!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm DCE:

I'm going to try to catch this one in town this weekend.
Avatar 4:08pm kat330:

Hey, Fab! Losey's "The Go-Between" is one of my all time fave films Been trying to buy the DVD / Blu-ray for Philo (who's never seen it), but there's some issue with rights over here.

thanks, vp.
Avatar 4:15pm Cecile:

Gregory Peck! What's Gregory Peck doing in sound research?
  4:16pm The_Brooklyn_Kid:

Who is speaking?
Avatar 4:17pm Cecile:

A professor who is not really Gregory Peck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm common:

  4:20pm The_Brooklyn_Kid:

Low level electro magnetic waves? Sound like HARP?
Avatar 4:21pm Cecile:

or the old ELF program in the 70s.
  4:21pm OTB:

Scout! We don't use those kinds of weapons in this house, Scout!

I never used to notice the "Woodpecker" changing freqs. every few SECS., maybe just after several MINS.
  4:25pm Robert:

Other observers concluded it was over-the-horizon radar.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm common:

glad you agree, dce!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm DCE:

there was a dive bar by the airport called Night Flights. It was demolished before I was old enough to try it. Always wondered at the debaucheries that probably happened there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm DCE:

so bored at work today I'm browsing the bowels of craigslist tinyurl.com...
Avatar 4:33pm V Priceless:

that had kind of an air raid, dental drill, floor-waxer vibe to it
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Carmichael:

Back from my luncheon. I would appreciate ANY air raid sirens, teeth cleaning or sparkling kitchen floor music.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Carmichael:

Oh, by the way rockers, I saw Veruca Salt last night on Conan the Entertainer. They was real good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm common:

dr. bender, eh?
Avatar 4:40pm Cecile:

but have they contacted Torchwood?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm northguineahills:

This looks like a good window of consciousness to crash into here through. Hello.
  5:01pm grassmother:

This is the music that comes out of my dogs mouth when he sings to me
  5:01pm OTB:

Great selections here, Fabio. Thank You!
Also thanks to Cecile & Common ;)
  5:03pm The Brooklyn Kid:

Honestly? The whole show sounds like a negative land album
Avatar 5:04pm Cecile:

and how is that bad?

thanks OTB and RTD.
Hi, Ike!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:05pm dale:

mega thunderstorm up here by mount hope. let's hear a weather service alert fabs.
  5:05pm The Brooklyn Kid:

I never said it was! I'm just use to Fabio playing some form of music
Avatar 5:07pm Cecile:

ah, I get it, Brooklyn. Some of my favorite shows are when he plays spoken word over crazy music. There is one piece about the Montreal World's Fair that used to be a staple. IT was pretty great.
  5:09pm The Brooklyn Kid:

@cecile you know what I'm talking about music you can trip out to:)
Avatar 🎸 5:09pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

All of this is essence of yay.

  5:13pm The Brooklyn Kid:

Avatar 5:13pm Cecile:

"And now 'The Death of Mary Queen of Scots'"
  5:14pm The Brooklyn Kid:

Does everyone know who William Basinski is? I know some in the station okay sone if his drone music bug I keep missing it
  5:15pm The Brooklyn Kid:

For the record! I like negativeland! I want to be just like them
Avatar 5:15pm chocolate monk:

some Ake Hodell would go well after this.
  5:18pm The Brooklyn Kid:

Fabio? Just a little Basinski? Please:)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Ike:

Cecile, I haven't had time to get to that yet, but thx for sending it!
  5:21pm The Brooklyn Kid:

I'm going to download and save this show to my personal archives
Avatar 5:21pm Cecile:

I think you will enjoy.

Great show today, Fabs.
Avatar 5:23pm still b/p:

I just silicon-sprayed the bejeesus out of a backpack cover, so even though it was done outdoors my semi-sprayed brain is ripe 'n ready for tripadiddlic stimulation.

"Take THAT, Mary, Queen of Scots!"

  5:38pm slick:

  5:42pm Buk:

Reminds me of Gang of Four's "Anthrax" before the lyrics begin.
Avatar 5:42pm Cheer:

Wow this Ambarchi number is right in the swamps! lovin it
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:43pm chris:

this is making me work more... other than that, I am really digging this Oren Ambarchi
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Carmichael:

The tension is becoming too great. Must scream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm davex:

It went down a half-note, once.
  5:44pm Bill F.:

Yeah man, this Ambarchi track is really doing it. Great show today, Fabio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm adrian in mpls:

recalls that great first track off the 71 minutes of faust record
  5:45pm Buk:

Great show--an objective correlative for today's weather!
Avatar 5:49pm chocolate monk:

this OA is pure faust vibe. No SUN RA fab???i am assuming Clay is gonna come stumbling into the studio and amaze us all with an Arkestra special... or maybe Star Castle?
Avatar 5:52pm Night Owl:

I want to go on record as saying fleeble flob flurb flonk. These are my own words and I stand by them.
Avatar 5:54pm Joey the Sleaze:

Fabio! Yeah! You're the second friendliest voice on WFMU!!! (after tonight's guest)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Carmichael:

It's Kenny Hickey's birthday (Type O Negative guitarist). Sun who??
Avatar 5:56pm Cecile:

Sun Ra has some of the widest variety of albums by one artist.
Avatar 5:57pm Cecile:

some swing, some bop, some noise, and some unclassifiable.
Avatar 5:57pm Cecile:

I'm so into you
  5:57pm r i s k y:

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:57pm dale:
