Listening to this over Daredevil with subtitles. Intermittently.
Avatar 12:40am Ryab:

Does anybody know when that Cambodian rock night is going to be at FMU? I can't remember. Or did I miss it?
Avatar 12:41am JakeGould:

“Join WFMU at Monty Hall on Apr 28th for an evening of music celebrating the wide range of musical styles coming out of Cambodia in the '60s and '70s. Chhom Nimol of Dengue Fever performs the songs of Ros Serey Sothea, original members of Baksey Cham Krong and The Drakkar Band will play, and Sinn Sisamouth's grandson will perform his grandfather's beloved songs.” www.brownpapertickets.com...

- fantastic tracks! ; no playlist necessary - I shall be listening in the dark - night all.

Hi Nick! Hi all!
Avatar 12:51am Jeff:

So... I hope your streams are all okay. The primary internet connection from the station to the streaming servers is down for scheduled maintenance, but I'm hoping the failover to the backup internet connection is working for you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52am Bronwyn Bishop:

I really wish I could be there to see the Cambodian concert. Cambodia had an amazing music scene back then and Sinn Sisamouth was incredible. His version of House of the Rising Sun is something else.
Avatar 12:53am Jeff:

But... unfortunately, Nick's Internet access to update the playlist is down. He says he'll back-announce verbally like the good ol' days.

Sorry for the inconvenience (Nick and everyone).

The network provider said:

Expected Outage/Downtime: up to 2 hour down time (1 hour expected)
Avatar 1:17am JakeGould:

So Nick is in the studio in Jersey City sans Innerwebs. That is a bummer. :/
Avatar 1:18am Jeff:

Frees him from distractions as he plays lovely musics?

Hello all! - thx for checking in - internet is back - thx jeff!

Hey all. This osborne piece fits my morning mind perfectly.
Avatar 1:24am JakeGould:

Phew! Now Nick can be distracted again.
  1:30am Dean:

Is the Shriekback a tribute to Ivor Tiefenbrun?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42am Ĩk∑:

Hmm. The season finale of Daredevil is kind of disappointing. Nick Name's show, on the other hand, is excellent.
  1:43am Nick Name:

@ Dean: ahh…hmm could be , right?
Avatar 1:46am JakeGould:

“The season finale of [whatever show there is right now] is kind of disappointing.” I was alive when that “Saint Elsewhere” magical autistic kid with a snowglobe thing happened. That is literally the moment I stopped caring about serialized TV. Episodic and procedural 4 ever!
Avatar 1:46am Ryab:

I'm on episode 12.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52am osvi:

enjoying the show, Nick Name. I am off tomorrow, so I get to stay up and listen to you and Stan. Bonus!
  1:59am weehawk:

This has been a nice show so far, thanks
  2:02am rw:

Yes. Nice show tonight! A little driftier than normal but we can all use a little drift once in a while.
  2:04am rw:

German Army... I saw them play once. Isn't there some mythology behind this band? Secret identities or something?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10am ikє:

@Jake, you let THAT turn you off of serialized TV? TV has gotten so much better. Episodic procedurals are so boring and low-stakes. Serials do offer greater risk, but sometimes greater reward.
Avatar 2:14am JakeGould:

@Ike: “TV has gotten so much better.” As someone who has watched the Sopranos, The Wire and others, “better” is a relative term. Yes, TV shows how show depth only once relegated to movies. But I can’t stand that pretense. The core plot of “Breaking Bad” could have been one 2 hour movie, but was dragged out endlessly. You’re watching well-filmed soap operas. Nothing more or less.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18am ℰ Ī Ҡ:

Oh come on, Breaking Bad would not have had its depth or breadth as a two-hour movie. As for soap operas, I don't remember anybody in The Wire or Breaking Bad marrying their rehabilitated rapists or anybody's evil twin showing up after they're killed off. Serials are not inherently beneath you just for being serials.
Avatar 2:21am Ryab:

I love tabla.
Avatar 2:22am Ryab:

And dont forget to mention Louie, challenging sitcoms. <3
  2:42am Tommy:

Wonderful show Nick , really loving it
  2:52am JakeGould:

@Ike: The art of movie making is distilling characters and stories into a small nugget. I contend that modern soap-opera-like serials simply repeat the same point ad-infinitum but present it in a way that makes you feel what you are experiencing is deeper than what it is. Meaning I don't think many fictional characters are that deep. You see Henry Hill in "Goodfellas" and there is not much else to that guy. A perfect example of how the pretense of serials fails is that "Bates Motel" series. Who cares about the deep story behind Norman Bates. But all that said, that is only my POV. Just because something is filmed in HD with depth of field and pretense does not mean it is "better."
  2:55am rw:

Thanks Nick!!
  2:59am Nick Name:

Hey - thx all - appreciate the comments - apologies i haven't been able to reply sooner - have a good weekend all
  3:00am Hel:

Thanks Nick, lovely outro!
  12:56pm Mark Dillman:

"Cannabis Sativa" by Head was used as background sound effects for legendary progressive rock DJ Clyde Clifford on KAAY radio from Little Rock, Arkansas, for about five years during the late 1960s-early 1970s. His program was called "Beaker Street" and was heard from 11:00pm until 2:00am Monday through Saturday. KAAY was a 50,000 watt AM radio station and was a clear channel at night (meaning no other AM radio station in the 48 states broadcast on that frequency) which allowed the signal to travel farther. Because this program was so widely heard it reached those parts of the South and Midwest that had no local progressive rock radio stations. Clyde Clifford was a godsend to remote hippies. I am not aware of a CD release of this album, so I suspect you have the original LP? Thank you for playing this.
