Cooooooooold here in DC. Hope you all are keeping warm.

It got to 85 F today, we're positively balmy. Greetings Irene and Trubelievers.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Irene Trudel:

Happy New Year everybody! Yesssss, coooool here in the NYC area too. Let's keep each other warm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm adrian in mpls:

I'm all for warmth! Esp. since it looks like my companion for tomorrow morning's wait for the bus will be a brisk -35 degree wind chill!
Avatar 9:20pm Van in DC:

Sean, when I was in London recently, I bought a Chelsea scarf. Looks like I'll be happily using it tomorrow for first time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Irene Trudel:

Yikes, Adrian! I can't even imagine what it's like to experience cold like that.

Evening Irene and Trudelites!

Hey, Matt, Happy National Bean Day.
Avatar 9:26pm Van in DC:

Matt - next Thursday. Kawehi. I be there :)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Van, fleep!
The Price is Beans. Or so Jim Price and Frank Balesteri would convince us...
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:27pm redkayak:

National Bean Day? How did I not know this? (I have an unfulfilled ambition to bring the lima bean back from obscurity)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Matt from Springfield:

I think I should be able to make that -- I'll tell you by next week if I can!
  9:30pm V Priceless:

Hey Irene and all! Ubu...cool!
Avatar 9:31pm Van in DC:

Matt - I'll be the guy in a WFMU "woof moo" black t-shirt :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Matt from Springfield:

I just wore my Goldfinch T-shirt, but I'm sure I would wear another black FMU shirt I have :)
Avatar 9:33pm Van in DC:

I'll also have my Woof-Moo hoodie on probably :)
Avatar 9:34pm Van in DC:

And wearing my Woof-Moo gloves.

And wearing my Woof-Moo scarf.
Avatar 9:37pm Van in DC:

Today was awesome in DC by the way. Went out for my daily walk on the mall, and lo and behold - NO TOURISTS. Sweet. Went right up to Washington Monument and inside. Nice lunchtime touristy thing with NO wait at all. Unbelievable. Took lots of nice snow pics and stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm BDR:

Speaking only for my circadian rhythm's buzz, I really dig the show in this Eastern Time Zone.
Avatar 9:39pm Van in DC:

Also, might have three Woof-Moo scarfs on. I ordered two more last night from Crapola-Central-WFMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Snow pics are great! I took some about 3 years ago and again last year, but haven't since. Waiting for a huge snowstorm worth snapping. Autumn is chock full of colors though, so there's always something new to photograph there.
Avatar 9:41pm Van in DC:

Irene - well done. I enjoyed a set in which I recognized NOBODY. Nice. And thanks.
  9:41pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Wonderful set, Irene
Avatar 9:43pm Van in DC:

I love watching the few tourists taking their photos, and I help them out frequently. There were a few of them today rejoicing in snow photos. I love beauty in all forms.
Avatar 9:45pm tonyb:

scarfs went to post late today
should reach dc by friday
Avatar 9:46pm Van in DC:

Wow, thanks!

Avatar 9:49pm Van in DC:

Irene - any Ryley Walker by chance on tap? That guy is so awesome
Avatar 9:49pm Van in DC:

Right Matt?

Evening Jake!

My discovery of Ryley Walker, courtesy Irene. Amazing live set.

  9:55pm JakeGould:

This is the time of year I have to really remember to go get some sun when it is outside. Hit me like a freight train of “BLEAGH” on Saturday in NYC when it was just raining all day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Hallo Hallo - Irish trad @ the pub done - now what a wonderful place to be this is...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm adrian in mpls:

@Jake - yeah, soaking that winter sun is important. when we had a couple weeks of unending grey here, i thought i was gonna lose my mind
Avatar 10:00pm Mugsy:

Your cats are gorgeous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Lots o' trad music for you tonight, welcome RevRab!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Mugsy! I'm a bit biased, but I do think I have beautiful kitties.
Avatar 10:04pm Van in DC:

WFMU gloves. I think I need more of those too actually.

  10:04pm P-90:

Bravo! Brilliant first hour.
Greetings of the baby new year to all.
Avatar 10:05pm Van in DC:

I'm still completely lost in the song list set for this show. I feel almost as if I've wondered into a GTDS show.
  10:06pm Mrs P:

Yes it was a wonderful hour Irene. So happy that you are on in the evening now.
Avatar 10:07pm Van in DC:

And by that, I mean, I mostlys LOVE GTDS songs but I know so little of what Doug plays. It's always mostly completely introductory lessons for Van in DC. That is what this is tonight for me too. But it's in a good way. If that makes sense?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm adrian in mpls:

@Van - it definitely makes sense. to me, one of the joys of wfmu is that i learn about so much music that i didn't know existed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Matt from Springfield:

@Van: Irene's eclectic enough for me not to know all of whom she plays -- which is ideal! Someone here once summed up a credo: "I want to like what I hear, not hear what I like!"
Avatar 10:10pm Van in DC:

+1 for adrian :)

+1 for Matt :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm adrian in mpls:

@Matt - I like that credo!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Mrs P, P90, Adrian, Sean, Matt and Van! I try not to be too predictable in what I play, although I do have my favorites. Gotta shake things up every so often.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hey, the Easter egg colors remind me of the Easter candy that's already on display in the store. It's toward the back of the aisle filled with all the St. Valentine's Day stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Irene Trudel:

Ken, of course we can't be allowed to forget about the next holiday coming up, and the next, and the next...
Avatar 10:15pm Van in DC:

GOTTA be a strings set coming up... *taps foot* ;)
Avatar 10:16pm Van in DC:

You are indeed
Avatar 10:19pm Van in DC:

Sean, you should probably be asleep by now my friend... and best wishes and happy dreams. I'll be on archives with you and others....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Matt from Springfield:

7SD Kids Show?? I thought they swore not to do another Cub Scout show until 2024!...
Avatar 10:23pm Van in DC:

Don Bikoff! Nice!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Fabio's "Danger Diabolik" - no connection then w/ Clouzot's "Diabolique" then?
Avatar 10:30pm Van in DC:

Is February a silent fund raiser month?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Matt from Springfield:

No, February should be a loud screaming Marathon--lookin' forward to it!
Avatar 10:32pm Van in DC:

Oh. I forget. Thanks Matt
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Matt from Springfield:

"The Paul & John"!!!
I was just about to note how much this sounds like Rubber Soul production! :D

Anytime, Van. Save up your spare change starting now! :)
Avatar 10:35pm Van in DC:

Spare change - chuckle. Yep. And then some 8>0
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm fleep:

Oh, wow.
Avatar 10:37pm Van in DC:

Honest confession - this (Beatles) song is the first song I've recognized tonight on this show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Matt from Springfield:

I already know "If I Fell", that's for sure - but I just took the rare step of Clicky Starring it away, since I love it that much!
(I think I've done that for a couple Kinks songs, among others I already know).
Avatar 10:39pm Van in DC:

Reminds me of...oh I don't know.

Steeleye Span?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Jeezy:

Ahhh... those incomparable harmonies! And funnily enough, the lyrics to that song with closer inspection have nothing to do with love and everything to do with spite. GENIUS!
Avatar 10:39pm Mugsy:

Always one of my favorite Beatles songs, just closed my eyes and lost myself in it for a couple minutes.
Avatar 10:40pm Van in DC:

One thing is sure. Irene is putting on a clinic tonight.
Avatar 10:42pm Van in DC:

  10:43pm JakeGould:

Not too sure people are trying to play “catch up” with music. You hear it, you like it, good. Done.
Avatar 10:44pm Van in DC:

This sounds like it should be off of 4AD
Avatar 10:45pm Van in DC:

(and that is a big compliment)
Avatar 10:46pm Van in DC:

Almost Cocteau Twins-ish...
  10:46pm Carmichael:

Hi Irene and listeners. Anyone who plays Caravan is AOK with me!
Avatar 10:47pm Van in DC:

Hiya Carm. Happy New Year!
  10:48pm Carmichael:

Van! Same to you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Greetings Carm!
Avatar 10:55pm Van in DC:

where oh where oh where will Irene steer the show. Hmmm. I can not begin to guess. She is really throwing us something out of the ordinary and special tonight.
  10:57pm KP:

Happy New Year, Irene
Avatar 10:58pm Van in DC:

KP. Happy New Year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Matt from Springfield:

And Happy '14 -> '15 to you, KP!

  11:02pm KP:

Hey, Van
Avatar 11:02pm Van in DC:

Incidentally, I checked just tonight for the KaTe DVD of her show - not out yet. As I promised, you will have one Irene. Nobody will know before me when it is out :)
  11:04pm KP:

My message was cut off, I also said Hey Matt!
Avatar 11:04pm Van in DC:

For old time's sake can Jim Price follow?
Avatar 11:05pm Van in DC:

Oh snap when I heard the guitar, I looked up to see is that Bikoff?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Matt from Springfield:

(restored message printed below)

, and Hey again, KP! :)
Avatar 11:07pm Van in DC:

....it was just something in that initial guitar....dunno.
Avatar 11:09pm Van in DC:

I like Caitlin. Sandy Denny gone country.
  11:09pm Carmichael:

Sounds like a strummy jangly set. Which is absolutely wonderful by me.
  11:10pm KP:

An apt description, Van
  11:10pm Carmichael:

Nick Drake in there too, Van?

Oh, but haven't there been lots of strings throughout tonight's show? (guitars abound)
Avatar 11:14pm Van in DC:

well yes but.... not on the order of Bill Frisell :)
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:16pm Webhamster Henry:

2014 for me had a lot to do with Vashti Bunyan and Linda Perhaps, two formerly missing in action singer songwriters.

Is there a theramin in there...? Not sure

That Linda Perhacs album was totally awesome
Avatar 11:19pm Van in DC:

Nice strings.


  11:20pm Carmichael:

Boy, Vashti Bunyan is just hitting her stride, 30 years on.
Avatar 11:22pm Van in DC:

Irene, can you play Dead City Emily?
Avatar 11:24pm Van in DC:

Probably too late for the request. But it's by Marissa Nadler of course. I believe she has been live on your show before?

I forget.

Great song though, terrific artist.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm Irene Trudel:

I'll squeeze it in for you, Van. Fits nicely in this set.
  11:28pm Carmichael:

He he, here's your Bikoff!
  11:29pm GeesyCreesy:

Was there a song between Aliath "Tape" and the Don Bikoll song? There's a blank space on the mobile app playlist.

@Geesy: Either way, that was an amazing transition!
Avatar 11:30pm Van in DC:

Sweet and sweet and sweet.....
