Is that Tom Jones singing Glen's song?
Let's start by saying thanks again for a great "Soundtracks" show last week, well done Sir
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Fuzzy:

I'm gonna guess that that was Tom...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Greetings, failures.
  3:09pm P-90:

Not the same without the baritone guitar solo.
Avatar 3:12pm ironybread:

Is it weird that every time an FMU DJ opens a show with a well-known pop song I check Twitter to see if that artist has died?
  3:13pm P-90:

@ ironybread: Seems perfectly sensible to me, why not?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@ironybread - One summer's day in August, years ago, I was driving a tractor on my dad's farm and they were playing Elvis all afternoon. Since then, unless it's 2-fer Tuesday, when I hear more than a couple songs from the same artist in a row, I start checking.
Avatar 3:21pm Milson:

What kind of failure do we have today?
Avatar 3:28pm ironybread:

I just love that the indicators are so different on WFU. On any other station, the sign that someone’s died would be that they’re playing multiple songs in a row; on FMU, the sign is that they’re playing a song I’ve heard before.

Hope jimmy Page is OK

Gosh Fabio, I've been living by Yoda's dictum, "do.. or do not.. there is no try..." Yoda could learn a thing or two about failure.
  3:36pm ScottC:

Hands down - best "Witchita Lineman" rendition is by The Meters. Zig is masterful on that track and the vocals are the best I've heard...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm rob t:

hi, fellow fabians.
  3:48pm nic:

boy if i had tom jones singing in my head i'd go crazy
Avatar 3:57pm Milson:

Did Fabio say if that was Herbie Mann?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm rob t:

really liked that irmler
Avatar 3:59pm Chris from DC:

Yeah, really liked that Donato Epiro.
Avatar 4:06pm t_J:

fill in this sentence: i ____ pleasure spiked with pain, and ________ is my aeroplane . and you could at least try and be happy failures
Avatar 4:07pm t_J:

can be with "know" & "rugby"

you had me at meat hooks...
Avatar 4:09pm t_J:

or "i've seen" & "rufus' tongue"
  4:11pm ?:

sounds like 1970 tour with Airto
  4:15pm Dean:

This woulda made a terrific sitcom theme song back in the '70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm rob t:

i hear a "sneak up on the bad guys" soundtrack theme myself.
Avatar 4:17pm Milson:

I don't my Miles Davis recordings... is this like a Fillmore East recording?
Avatar 4:20pm t_J:

hi Fabio, gotta say totally support the idea of placing failure to the past.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm rob t:

ah, Antony Milton! love his work.
Avatar 4:44pm Milson:

Alan Fadensonnheim... couldn't help it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm Andrew Waterloo:

just scored a copy of Live Evil on used vinyl :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm common:

nice andrew!
Avatar 4:54pm ironybread:

Sounds like SOMEBODY needs Dick Hyman doing "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose" as their new instrumental background. Why SAINTS PRESERVE US, look what just turned up: taylorjessen.blogspot.com...
Avatar 4:55pm Milson:

dude... what was that!!!! Right when Fabio said, "I hate the flute" my computer froze and everything turned robotic and slow... all I could hear is "ffffllllllluuuuuuuuutttttttte..... mmaaaaaaaannnnn...." pretty trippy... was that just me?
  4:55pm wandar:

What about Jethro tull's flute, Fabio? ;) My dad hated the piano--he thought it sounded like someone pounding on saucepans with a spoon...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Andrew Waterloo:

@ironybread, well.. can't not go and download that gorgeous piece of wonder. thank you
  4:59pm sonictooth:

sounds like Oliveros
  5:00pm Dean:

Then there's Sir Thomas Beecham's take on another keyboard instrument: "The sound of a harpsichord - two skeletons copulating on a tin roof in a thunderstorm."
Avatar 5:07pm Chris from DC:

So much from today's show I need to hear more of.
Avatar 5:16pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Good afternoon to The Chosen Ones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm steve:

nice ambient vibes today
Avatar 5:25pm Philo Gristle:

Quick comment. Kat ran to the kitchen thinking there was something sizzling on the stove! But, alas, it was just Fabio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Bas NL:

Hello Fabio, hello all! Tarab is getting my fav star.. And what a fantastic set this is growing in to!
  5:30pm kyle:

I knew it was a good day when I heard Tim Jones singing "Wichita Lineman" and then lots of sonic confusion.
  5:31pm ScottC:

how do you feel about the Pan Pipe?
  5:32pm wandar:

A tribute to David Lynch's movie soundtracks:
  5:34pm P-90:

What kyle said!
Avatar 5:37pm Cecile:

It's about the settling of Israel after WWII.
Avatar 5:37pm Cecile:

I also have never seen the film. Based on a Leon Uris novel.
Avatar 5:38pm Cecile:

It's the Normal Heart. By Larry Kramer, founder of ACT UP.
