First really hot day here in Brooklyn

My father served in ww2 on an aircraft carrier
Avatar 8:09pm Bethany Ryker:

Yes, seems like the 'unofficial' beginning to summer brought some heat to the city
  8:13pm doca:

Hi, Bethany and all. The last days saw the first really cold days here in South Brazil. I'm glad winter is finally coming.
  8:15pm the Brooklyn kid:

Love love love piano music

No military holidays here in Germany. We do get Thursday off for Ascension, though.
  8:18pm the Brooklyn kid:

I personally don't like any and all holidays! Except for one.... Halloween
Avatar 8:20pm ranjit:

Not even National Blueberry Cheesecake Day?
  8:21pm the Brooklyn kid:

Blueberry cheese cake is a diabetic nightmare!
Avatar 8:25pm ranjit:

So is Halloween...
  8:27pm the Brooklyn kid:

@ranjit quite true!
Avatar 8:27pm ranjit:

Anyway, I really like this Lou Harrison.
Avatar 8:29pm Bethany Ryker:

Gotta say, blueberry cheesecake does sound like a nice idea. Just the thought of it is enough!
  8:30pm Rynac:

The Harrison piece was great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Rick from SC:

Cool, I'm listening in real time for once. Love your show.
Avatar 8:32pm ranjit:

Huh, I just realized that I've never heard anything by Gavin Bryars except "Jesus' Blood".
Avatar 8:33pm Bethany Ryker:

@ranjit - not even the Sinking of the Titanic?
Avatar 8:33pm Bethany Ryker:

@Rick from SC - glad you are here! Welcome!
  8:33pm Rynac:

This has a very dream-like quality.
  8:33pm the Brooklyn kid:

I'm diabetic and without sugar I feel like a heroine addict going cold turkey!
God I need something sweet right now!!!!
Avatar 8:35pm ranjit:

Yeah, not even that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm davex:

Nice piece!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Rick from SC:

reminds me a bit of clair de lune in this section
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm davex:

Thanks, Bethany! This show could use another hour or two.
Avatar 8:54pm thunderish' Jay:

hi every1! thanks for the music Bethany.. but trying to keep "Kojira" under sleep when he is already awake is a bit obnoxious.. too stringy i would guess
Avatar 8:55pm dk:

_really_ liking this luciano berio piece.
Avatar 8:55pm Bethany Ryker:

Non-intentional, but everything on this program with the exception of the Scriabin (from 1889) is from the 20th or 21st century...though Bryars is referencing Handel, throwing us back to the early 18th. More early music next week!
  Swag For Life Member 8:56pm 12539:

Thanks Bethany. Such a lovely hour of such a lovely day.
  9:00pm P-90:

Thanks, DJ Bethany!
--have a great week!
Avatar 9:00pm ranjit:

Good night! Thanks for the music!
