I scrobbled sigur ros and the internet exploded. I think it has something to do with Armenia

Now I get it… Morricone Iceland.
  7:16pm Listener Robert:

That letter is "thorn". It's equivalent to runic "thurisaz", Thor's letter.
  7:17pm Listener Robert:

It's pronounced halfway between "th" & "d".

  7:25pm Fillyjonk:

I only ever got to see a few scenes of Cold Fever in a documentary but one that has stuck with me for years is the one where the Citroen DS is started and shakes itself out of the ice like some creature from the Pleistocene. (they had hydro-pneumatic suspension)

Great icy show for a sweltering NYC summer day.
  7:51pm Fillyjonk:

JakeGould: Yes, that was it exactly. Thanks.
Avatar 7:54pm JakeGould:

@Fillyjonk: The fact that car can do that is one of the coolest things.
  7:59pm P-90:

Another excellent hour, @DJ Devon. A "part 2" would be great, especially with a guest who could help illuminate some of the background on Icelandic films and scores. This show has quickly proven an invaluable addition to the station IMHO.
