Tim Hardin = awesome. Tim Buckley = awesome too.
Avatar 3:21am Jeff Conklin:

In full agreement on both fronts, Simon. Good morning. Thanks for checking in. Wondering if the new site has regular commenters spooked?
Avatar 3:36am Aki Ozu:

cool selection.
Avatar 3:37am Jeff Conklin:

Hello, Aki! Thank you. First time listening to this program?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40am pacific standard simon:

It has ME spooked, frankly. I mean, do your own thing, man, but it doesn't look right, and it doesn't work right. But I'm just spooked in general by the demands of the holiday season at my job.
Avatar 3:42am Aki Ozu:

No, I often listen to. I must say that one of the favorite programs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42am pacific standard simon:

I've come to appreciate Richie Havens more (as time goes by).
Avatar 3:43am Aki Ozu:

We have morning, and it turns out that I always listen to your night air, working
  3:43am tinkle bear:

hey jeff.

re: new site design spookiness

i'm not a regular commenter, but i am a regular playlist looker-upper.

and i will say this: the path to the current playlist from the
wfmu.org main page is significantly more obscure than it used to be
(for visitors whose web clients ignore javascript).

current workaround: parse content of
and know that the uri you're looking for is
"wfmu.org/playlists/shows/PLAYLISTNUMBER", where PLAYLISTNUMBER is the
value of "playlist:@attributes:id".

would be more sensible if the wfmu main page just contained a plain
old hyperlink to the current playlist.
Avatar 3:44am Aki Ozu:

We have morning and google translater
  3:46am Stefan:

Good Morning, ja, the site looks new, but the playlist link remained the same, I had to check the landing page to see that a relaunch had taken place. ("regular" listener since about three month to Jeffs programme)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47am pacific standard simon:

@ Aki Ozu - to you I dedicate "Morning, Morning" by The Fugs. I am not the DJ, but if I were, I would play it.
Avatar 3:49am Jeff Conklin:

All comments on the redesign will be forwarded to management. I/We appreciate the feedback. It's a work in progress....

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49am joeray:

Good Morning Jeff and listeners! I'm not spooked by the new site, but I haven't been doing anything fancy - just current playlist page and streaming audio.
Avatar 3:50am Jeff Conklin:

Welcome, Stefan
Avatar 3:51am Jeff Conklin:

Hey, joeray
Avatar 3:53am coelacanth:

good morning Jeff and others

i'm about to turn the computer off but hello & Thank you!
(i listen via booster antenna)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55am pacific standard simon:

Whatever gets you through the night (is alright, is alright).
  3:55am tinkle bear:

@jeff, anyone else who cares

works in progress are the only honest kind.

best wishes to wfmu and listeners.

nice show!
Avatar 3:58am coelacanth:

...but regarding home page- i quite disliked it (the opposite of my feeling toward this Dave Burrell track...)
but i'm used to it already and don't have any trouble finding what i need to.
...it is pretty ugly though!
Avatar 4:02am coelacanth:

(but that's subjective,hey)
...i'm wondering if the Stefan on this comment board is the "belly of the beast" Stefan..?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04am pacific standard simon:

I think the central question should be: what did someone think was wrong with the old one? It would be helpful to know what someone was trying to fix.
Avatar 4:04am Jeff Conklin:

I like it (the homepage). I like this track too, though I'm bummed it was played recently on another show. A million apologies...
  4:07am tinkle bear:

what @pacific standard simon said at 4:04 "what did someone think was
wrong with the old one? It would be helpful to know what
someone was trying to fix."

yes. it would be helpful. probably interesting, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09am pacific standard simon:

@Jeff - Some shows play one song every single week. Just think about how much you like that song, and how much you want it identified with your show
Avatar 4:09am coelacanth:

simon i think there's some functional changes that will make the new homepage easier to work with in the technology-burdened future; at least that's the impression i got.
...i personally thought the old page worked fine, but would like to have seen its color-scheme change periodically...for the hell of it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09am pacific standard simon:

Station ID, baby.
Avatar 4:12am coelacanth:

coincidentally, interesting facial overhaul simon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15am pacific standard simon:

@coelacanth - deepdreamgenerator.com...

Create yourself. It's worth it.
Avatar 4:17am coelacanth:

...and i didn't hear the Burrell track on Bryce's show...AND it's just twice,and it's amazing!... that unbearable cover of a Bowie song made the rounds big-time a week or 2 ago,so...all is well!
Avatar 4:18am Jeff Conklin:

I like this show's identity to be fluid ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26am pacific standard simon:

Well, so far, you haven't played any Grateful Dead tracks tonight.
Avatar 4:29am coelacanth:

understood Jeff, but at least you're mutuality is with someone who's generally blazing trails not following them.
simon my computer says no to that link. i'll try it in the future.

...i'm out. Thanks Jeff Great first set!
'night people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32am pacific standard simon:

  4:38am Jeff Conklin:

I'd like to think that when people think of this show they don't think "Grateful Dead"
Avatar 5:04am Aki Ozu:

I had a period of time, three or four years ago, when I bought every experimental things on tape. Including Burial Hex and listened to the cassette deck.
Avatar 5:04am Aki Ozu:

It was fun
  5:05am Fashion Tashjian:

Tuning in from Yerevan, Armenia.
Avatar 5:06am Jeff Conklin:

I had a similar period of time, Aki. From 2003-2010!
Avatar 5:06am Jeff Conklin:

Good morning, Tashjian! How is Armenia today?
Avatar 5:09am Aki Ozu:

Here in Russia, it seems to have been a wave of experimental ambient drone, produced on cassette labels. Now in vogue all experimental techno.
  5:12am Eric Hat:

Frigid good morning!
Avatar 5:12am Jeff Conklin:

Yes, the drone scene is crowded now and, in my humble opinion, terribly boring. I'm not into the techno either...
Avatar 5:13am Jeff Conklin:

Morning, Eric. Where you checking in from?
Avatar 5:15am Aki Ozu:

to hear the drone has Drone Zone on Soma.fm. That is quite a sufficient :)
  5:24am Fashion Tashjian:

Yerevan is currently 55 Fahrenheit, clear and sunny, and full of poorly dressed men.
  5:30am tinkle bear:

good evening to errbody having cold mornings: have some coffee for
us. thanks again for the shoe, joeff.

tis and twaz a good shoe.

goodnaught now.
Avatar 5:31am Jeff Conklin:

Night, Tinkle.

Driving my cab. Twelve Degrees out!
  5:39am Eric Hat:

Yr show is always such a beautiful end to my long work week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40am joeray:

Thanks for another great show, Jeff!
Avatar 5:41am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks so much, Eric. Does the music ever freak the passengers out?
  5:44am Eric Hat:

Not at this hour. Often I'm alone or carting the late bar crew home, with whom I am acquainted and often share musical tastes with. It's always awesome driving down 66 alone. The ghosty soundtracks give me goosebumps...
Avatar 5:46am Jeff Conklin:

This is what I like to hear, Eric. Cheers.
  5:59am Eric Hat:

Avatar 6:00am Aki Ozu:

good luck, Jeff
  6:00am Nicky T:

Really digging the show. My first time tuning in, gonna make it part of my Monday morning!
