wow, a Friday Stochastic Hit Parade! Lovely!
Avatar 12:10pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Three hours of Stochastic 440 ! ! : )
...Think you can find enuff - ? :p ...
Avatar 12:17pm pierre:

Bonjour Bethany ! Glad to hear you.
We were talking about how we missed your show for it's never ending stream of good classical music
Avatar 12:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- that's right we were.
  12:22pm Tom Washington:

Very good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Ike:

So Bryce is too busy waiting in line for great deals on Dustbusters and boomboxes and sacks full of kittens at the Rockaway Townsquare Mall to show up today, eh? That bastard!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Parq:

Ike, I for one will accept any excuse to welcome Miss Bethany.
Avatar 12:37pm Bethany Ryker:

Greetings everyone! @Ike, you nailed it. Feel free, y'all, to muse on Bryce's whereabouts, and I'll be sure he gets the full report!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Ike:

Agreed, Parq! Nice to know that Bethany, unlike Bryce, is not a raving consumerist who waits in line at 5 a.m. to trample people for more heavily discounted 60-inch HDTV sets and CHUD food and bulk railroad ties. Go Bethany!
Avatar 12:41pm Sem Chumbo:

Bulk railway ties? I didn't see that. Damn, probably all gone now. This puts me in a black Friday mood.
Good afternoon, Bethany, and all youse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Andrew Waterloo:

that reminds me.. I need to buy peanut butter
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm Rob W:

Carolyn Shaw's Partita for 8 voices - great!
  12:51pm Phillip (Brooklyn):

This is great 3 long hours of Bethany :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

I am really enjoying this show. Bethany should do more fill-ins or get her own show.
  12:52pm kafkast:

Your signal has reached a small island called Funen, in Denmark.
Wicked world!
  12:52pm Phillip (Brooklyn):

It's "Black Friday" and I'm still here home haven't moved an inch
  12:54pm Phillip (Brooklyn):

I was trampled under foot once by crazed bargain hunting customers once before. I like all my organs where they are
  12:56pm Phillip (Brooklyn):

@bethany I remember when you had a 3 hour show was the Sunday/Monday overnight
Avatar 12:57pm pierre:

this is so cool ! thanks for the great music Bethany !
Avatar 12:57pm slugluv1313:

hi Bethany! a lovely treat to hear you here today for a full three hours, YAY!!! Happy-Day-After-Thanksgiving to you and all WFMU-ers out there!
  12:57pm rynac:

Sublime, what a great change from blaring commercials.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Rob W:

By the way, Carolyn Shaw won a Pulitzer for this profound and beautiful work at age 30! Thanks for playing it Bethany.
  12:58pm Phillip (Brooklyn):

My friends:( once again they gave me a flu shot and I got the flu again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm Rob W:

Beautiful choral set, this is great...

Holding down a mild fever/chills/naseua with some OTC stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Irene Trudel:

What a lovely piece this is by Henk Badings. Otherworldly harmonies!
Avatar 1:05pm Jeff:

How excellent to get a long-form A440!
  1:06pm JakeGould:

Nice show for an unnecessarily hectic day.
  1:07pm Phillip (Brooklyn):

@bethany I'm going to download your 3 hour show. It will be such a comfort to hear when I'm going to sleep tonight
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm fleep:

Greetings to Bethany, music lovers, non-shoppers and hypochondriacs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm Irene Trudel:

So nice to be able to listen to you in the afternoon, Bethany!
  1:12pm Blurry:

what was that playing just now, during your wonderful recap?
  1:15pm Phillip (Brooklyn):

Bryce and Kurt are probably shopping in the BiG And Tall section of marshals or tjmaxx
Avatar 1:15pm Bethany Ryker:

@Blurry, that's an early instrumental version on the song 'Skin Is, My' that's on his album Weather Systems. I entered it in the playlist :)
  1:16pm Blurry:

Thank you! What a great musical feast today after the stuff fest last night.
  1:16pm Phillip (Brooklyn):

@bethany we miss you! Please come back to us soon:-(:::
Avatar 1:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- expanding my appreciation for John Zorn! - & amazingly performed as well...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Andrew Waterloo:

Just remember that every gift received from Bryce will stretched out, abstracted, and heavily processed.
Avatar 1:35pm northguineahills:

I once saw John Zorn premier a piece before a Milton Babbitt piece, and ol' Boppin' Babbitt was there. Feels weird to say I saw John Zorn open for Milton Babbitt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Streaming live from Burger Hill on our sleds. What fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm fleep:

@RRN63 Got the invite, thanks. I'm not on Facebook. Nor will I ever be.
  1:45pm dan!:

love the show! so glad you played the schubert!
Avatar 1:48pm Bethany Ryker:

@dan! I had forgotten about that trio's Kubrick ubiquity!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

I really enjoyed your show but I should go to sleep now. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Gaylord Fields:

Bethany, I'm being swept away! The silver lining of your being relegated to fill-ins on this schedule is that we get to behold this in three-hour chunks instead of 60-minute bursts.
Avatar 2:02pm Bethany Ryker:

That. right there, that moment where Ravel unleashes...and you're thinking...this is a *trio*? Because it sounds like the whole world collided.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Irene Trudel:

This Ravel piece is one of my all-time favorites. Totally in agreement about "That Moment."
Avatar 2:07pm HarktheUmpire:

So glad I'm home to hear this brilliant show.
Thank you, Bethany!
  2:10pm geoff:

bethany, i wish you were on the schedule with a three hour show again. this music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm Gaylord Fields:

Will we reach a point some day when one can gauge the level of approval for a piece by the amount of coughing at its conclusion?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm Irene Trudel:

Yeah, the chorus of coughs is pretty hilarious! I especially noticed it the few times when I've had the chance to mix a live broadcast WQXR. The pause can be lengthy depending on whether it's flu or allergy season. At least they have enough awareness to wait.
Avatar 2:16pm Bethany Ryker:

Irene, those audio moments have REMIX written all over them!!
  2:16pm ans:

love the combination of works!! first time i listen to one of your shows, thanks bethany: very sympathic, very passionate, love it.
  2:17pm Listener Schned:

As to atrocious audience behavior, I struggle to follow the logic of someone who's paid a hefty ticket price, yet finds it necessary to go to, like, Duane Reade, right beforehand. Then they rustle through their tacky plastic bag the whole time - aarrrgh!!
Nice to hear A440 in real time - your programming, in archived form, made my summertime weekly Metro North rides an aural adventure, separating my mind completely from the workaday world-
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Gaylord Fields:

The antithesis of that phenomenon, of course, is Cage's 4'33", where coughing during the performance is never discouraged, as it IS the performance, to some extent.
Avatar 2:18pm Bethany Ryker:

Because his silver-lining comment melted my heart, I have to indulge in a semi-insider moment and say, I LOVE YOU, GAYLORD!
Avatar 2:19pm Bethany Ryker:

Or has that reached the mainstream??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Gaylord Fields:

@Bethany Riker: I don't believe I LOVE YOU GAYLORD has shown up on Know Your Meme yet, but nonethesess I'm pleased and honored to spur on one of WFMU's longer-running inside memes for you.
Avatar 2:25pm Bethany Ryker:

Bless that sweet DJ Keili, it is!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Just Ted:

Hi. I really like your show. I've heard it a few times now, but have not been able to comment until today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm fred:

What a rare and welcome treat, being able to hear this show live.
Is it wrong to rejoice that Bryce is still sleepy from yesterday's tryptofu?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm BDR:

Now, with the Janacek, I'll be thinking of Murakami's 1Q84 the rest of the afternoon. This is a good thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm fleep:

Tybalt. Tyblat is a character from another play with digestive issues.
  2:42pm Doug Wieselman:


Playing the hits ! Nice to hear you - happy end of the year. See you in 2015
Avatar 2:42pm Jeff:

Ha! The Mahler 5!

Thanks for busting out a fave of mine.

(and parts of this movement bring us right back to the storminess of earlier in the show)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Irene Trudel:

Avatar 2:46pm Bethany Ryker:

@Jeff, yep - with the tempo marking "Stürmisch Bewegt", I had originally grouped it with other TEMPESTUOUS pieces from weeks back, and with today's stretched-out duration finally got to include it. You're right on!
Avatar 2:48pm Jeff:

Irene says that, and... POP!

I'm listening to Elaine Stritch singing Ladies Who Lunch

Must return to Mahlerville. Er, Mahlerstadt?
Avatar 2:51pm TDK60:

We were just mourning your departure the other day, on some show; can't recall now the show. But good to hear you now.
Avatar 2:51pm zeer:

Thank you BR for this great masterpiece! <3
Avatar 2:52pm northguineahills:

Well, time to cook some lunch. Nice to hear you do a 3 hour set (although I only heard 2). Thanks!
Avatar 2:57pm Jeff:

Oh, minor typo alert: "Death of Tyblat"?
Avatar 2:59pm Jeff:

(oh yeah, @fleep was already on this)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm Irene Trudel:

Excellent show, Bethany! It was exactly the kind of music I needed today. Thanks so much!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Gaylord Fields:

Exquisite, Bethany! Thank you!
Avatar 3:00pm TDK60:

We want you back.
  3:01pm Blurry:

That was a terrific show, long live free form radio! Come back soon Bethany and have fun on whatever roads you are gunning down
  3:02pm marmalade kitty:

cool show!
  3:12pm JakeGould:

Very happy to hear you today!
  11:15am 12539:

Thanks, Bethany.

I hate to say it, but I think I might prefer the 3-hour guerilla fill-ins to the scant one hour a week I was so used to.
