What are you folks doing (if anything) while listening right now? Just curious.

Evening, Dave. Off to a stellar start. Thanks for the Carter Tutti Void. Have been meaning to get a copy of it.

Trying (slowly) to learn Javascript while eating Czech chocolate. This music is somehow very fitting.

hiya dave, happy sunday!

No prob, Dave. Greehoos is probably closer to the original Scots pronunciation, anyway. Haha.
Avatar 10:16pm JakeGould:

@DaveMandl: Last night I decided to be boring and clean up my collection of accumulated computer cables. I had TONS of USB and Ethernet cables I just have no use for. And since I plan on recycling them at the Lower East Side Ecology Center place, I stumbled across someone’s stoop filled with AC adapters… I winced at the idea of those getting rain soaked, so I dragged the bag home so those get recycled with the rest. So now I an post-e-cycling relaxing.
Avatar 10:16pm JakeGould:

FWIW, as a tech guy since the 1990s I used to accumulate AC power cables. Now it’s just USB cables and network cables. Odd observation.
  10:17pm Listener Robert:

Dave, John says he & everyone in what's now his area (near Columbia, SC) has a story about events related to the floods there.
Avatar 10:17pm Dave Mandl:

@Ike: I'm impressed. I find JavaScript very hard to code in.
Avatar 10:18pm Dave Mandl:

@Jake: I have a million old telephone (modular) cables. Just recently started throwing some out.
Avatar 10:18pm JakeGould:

@Ike: You learning with jQuery or going straight to the raw JavaScript?
Avatar 10:18pm Dave Mandl:

And hi, cheri.
Avatar 10:18pm Dave Mandl:

@Robert: Uh-oh, I'm afraid to hear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm Ĩkє:

@Jake, I'm taking the Codecademy free online course -- I presume this is raw Javascript. @Dave, it's dead easy so far, but I've barely started.
  10:19pm cheri:

so dave, what's up?
Avatar 10:19pm HollyT:

Hi Dave, folks! Sorry I'm late! I ran all the way here! *collapses into conveniently placed armchair*
  10:19pm Listener Robert:

I SHOULD be doing making a Scatchard or Eadie-Hofstee plot & reporting on experimental results to my client, the Global Healing Center. But I'm goofing off again instead.
Avatar 10:20pm Dave Mandl:

@cheri: Not much. Just doing the old radio show.
Avatar 10:20pm JakeGould:

@DaveMandl: Yeah, I had tons of those until like 10 years ago. I found a humble pile of small RJ11 cables unused from computers that came with them and such. Like Apple when they had modems built into the machine. Also, found a small cache of these mini-3.5mm headphone jack to full-sized headphone jake adapters that used to come with even the cheapest headphones in the 1990s… When full-sized headphone jacks were still common. instagram.com...

Afraid to hear about how John's sister opened the garage door from the OUTside & was hit by a near-knee-deep wall of water from the INside?
Avatar 10:22pm JakeGould:

@Ĩkє: Oh, cool… Pro-tip thought? Raw JavaScript is tough… jQuery is easy… But if you can mix the two you have a good skill. Most JavaScript coding that happens nowadays uses libraries like jQuery and then if you need to really customize things, real JavaScript can get mixed in.
Avatar 10:23pm Dave Mandl:

@Robert: Yeah, that kind of thing.
  10:25pm Listener Robert:

Once again I forgot the Morris Park Columbus Day parade today, which I could've walked to. I've skipped it the past 5 yrs. at least.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Ike:

In that case, I bet it's probably jQuery. I haven't coded in almost 20 yrs. and so far even *I* understand it, so it can't be the hard version.

Ooof! You dissed Ocean Parkway! I grew up on Ocean Parkway… This transgression will not be forgotten!
Avatar 10:34pm Dave Mandl:

@Jake: I didn't. I love Ocean Parkway.
  10:35pm greyhoos:

"Formerly of Pink Floyd." Can't tell how many times I've encountered aspiring artists trying to pass off a bogus connection/pedigree that way. Eg: "Apprenticed under Bob Marley." Turns out dude gave the guy used to drive a cab in Manhattan and once had Marley as a fare.

I kid… I kid… Went to Lincoln so hey…
Avatar 10:36pm HollyT:

I love that story. My best friend and I used to walk around the mall in the mid-80s affecting British accents, decked out in our Noo Wave gear, like the pretentious boobs we were. Good times.
Avatar 10:37pm Dave Mandl:

@greyhoos: That's pretty brazen.
  10:37pm Listener Robert:

A problem w programming languages comes up when they make them vey similar to each other. That seems like a sensible thing to do, unless you know the story of how "a shibboleth" came to have its metaphoric meaning, which I got from Mario Pei.
Avatar 10:37pm Dave Mandl:

@Jake: A fine high school.
Avatar 10:38pm Dave Mandl:

@Holly: Wow. But you didn't book gigs at punk clubs under false pretenses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm melinda:

I like Everyone Involved.
Avatar 10:40pm JakeGould:

@DaveMandl: Yeah, it was fine. But I graduated in 1986 and then in 1987 was when the metal detectors came to the school. It’s like I got the last taste of a semi-normal NYC public education.
  10:40pm Listener Robert:

I might not have become a WFMU listener had it not been for the influence over 35 yrs. ago of someone whose name was just mentioned to me by a mutual friend today, and who used to affect sometimes a British, sometimes an Australian, accent just for shits & giggles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm melinda:

Gotta get Dust on the Nettles. What a collection.
Avatar 10:41pm Dave Mandl:

@melinda: It's superb.
Avatar 10:42pm Dave Mandl:

@Jake: I think it's a pretty dangerous school these days.
  10:43pm Listener Robert:

He was from a crowd a decade younger than me, and was introduced to me by one of them when I asked to find out more about punk rock.
Avatar 10:45pm Dave Mandl:

@Robert: The kind of guy who'd affect an English accent, I guess.
  10:47pm Listener Robert:

If I hadn't met him, I suppose I might've eventually learned of WFMU via you.

OTOH, I was also introduced to your current competitor, Rich Conaty, by another friend at that other friend's party, also around that time. And no, I don't have his program on while I'm commenting on your playlist stream!

but unfortunately TV is blasting in next room -- impossibly distracting :(
i am inspired now to teach myself code!

@slugluv1313: Turn the sound off!
  10:57pm Listener Robert:

The rice pudding came out OK, but maybe could use more sugar. Fortunately it's a lot easier to add sweetener than to subtract it.
Avatar 10:58pm Dave Mandl:

@Robert: True.
  11:06pm greyhoos:

ELO? Trying to sound like Robert Wyatt on this one?
Avatar 11:06pm HollyT:

Whoa! Early ELO. Nice.
Avatar 11:07pm HollyT:

IIRC, this is the album that got its name by mistake? I don't remember the exact story behind it, but I'm sure you've told me it, Dave
Avatar 11:07pm Dave Mandl:

Yes, ELO/Roy Wood. A masterpiece, that song.
Avatar 11:08pm Dave Mandl:

@Holly: Yes! "No Answer" was a telephone message.

Great show. Also, great jam today.
  11:13pm Pas Musique:

Hey Ike! How are you?
  11:15pm greyhoos:

In answer to the earlier question of what's up for the evening: Enjoying that the evening temps have cooled enough to open up the the house. And reading about how the British Empire had posted spies in numerous southern American port cities in the years leading up to U.S. Civil War. Because the Brits had abolished the slave trade decades earlier, but had a textile industry that was heavily dependent on U.S. cotton, but didn't want to help bankroll -- pending a possible succession -- a potential Confederacy.
Avatar 11:15pm slugluv1313:

@ Ike -- thank you! yes, had just checked it out -- WOW! had no idea this even existed!
@ Dave -- i wish! just asking to turn the volume down causes all sorts of temper tantrums! so the music helps to drown out the racket :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm Īke:

Hey, good to see you, Pas!
  11:17pm greyhoos:

BTW, Dave: Tonight's show is a solid reminder of why I tune in each week.
Avatar 11:19pm slugluv1313:

@Pas: Hey there! Yeah, it was a pleasure playing with you guys today.
Avatar 11:23pm Dave Mandl:

@greyhoos: Aw, thanks.
Avatar 11:34pm Mdurek:

this is the first i've heard nels cline besides wilco. very pleased!
Avatar 11:34pm Dave Mandl:

@MD: Yeah, his solo stuff is consistently great.
  11:38pm greyhoos:

Re, double/live albums in the 1970s. Definitely a glut of of live albums. I think the band Chicago may've done a 3-LP live joint. Live albs were as common as dirt, much like "Frampton Comes Alive" eventually would be. Maybe it was all the product of major-label $$$ largesse and the demands of the contracts they inked with most of their acts.
Avatar 11:38pm JakeGould:

@ListenerRobert: Your making rice pudding and I’m making kasha. What a grain-based demographic!

This track is so awesome. - Direct Sound - Five Voices

I want to turn the muted synth parts into an ableton instrument

@MD: Yeah!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Great show Dave, I especially liked the Small Faces and Tangerine Dream
Avatar 11:51pm Dave Mandl:

Thanks, Bronwyn.
  11:56pm greyhoos:

And back in the '90s, I kept waiting for some new post-/noise-rock outfit to ironically name their debit album "KISS Alive II." It probably happened; but if so, I missed.
