i think is going to be fine...really... sure.. ok.... oops, gotta go!!


not
  9:31am neil who is WILD, man:

So I guess the theme is goodbye to 2015 and the blackbird is 2015??
  9:32am HDF:

13 ways of listening to a blackbird. I can remember a series of casio keyboards i had as a kid that would play 'bye bye blackbird' as a preset if you punched in the right code
Avatar 9:32am Cecile:

hi/bye annie.
Can you play something from the new Horrendous album?
Avatar 9:33am nathaxn walker:

That new Horrendous album is great, Cecile! I also love blackbirds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34am Ken From Hyde Park:

Red wing blackbirds are cool, but the less common yellow headed blackbird is a fine bird as well.
Avatar 9:34am nathaxn walker:

The last Horrendous album is also great!

Also, 3 hours of Lemmy > everything.

If it's going to be 3 hours of Blackbird, I'm a'gonna go listen to Horrendous. And then some Motorhead. Sorry, all.

what's everyone's new year's resolution that they plan on breaking right away?

it can not be a whole show of blackbird !!!

otto, hah. I hope.

I am planning on managing my vices better this year. After I have a blowout night at the drag bar tonight with a bunch of drunks. The place is appropriately named Lush.
Avatar 9:41am Cecile:

*changes to Horrendous* that's better.
  9:42am RenRen:

Is this normal
Avatar 9:43am Cecile:

nothing is never normal with this show.
He doesn't usually play 3 hours of one song, though.
Avatar 9:43am Cecile:

and there's infinitely more death metal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44am Parq:

Somebody should have told Anthony Newly that Sinatra could pull off that type of Daddy-o lyrical riffing because he was Sinatra. And thanks for playing Miles, my personal favorite take on the song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46am Ken From Hyde Park:

I resolve to use my left hand for mundane things like picking up fallen pencils. I figure it'll help balance my brain somewhat.

omg, he's even playing them by year!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01am annie:

sonny stitt, now my day is complete. .. and i like the fact that the same words are in the middle box, it totally satisfies my neat-oriented brain
  10:01am Fred R:

Awesome Chris! Very eclectic titles in the playlist.
Avatar 10:01am nathaxn walker:

for my new years resolution, which I will keep, I will stop baking blackbirds into pies, but it is an easy one to keep as I have never actually done so nor ever seriously considered doing so, not even now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02am Parq:

Is this really gonna be the whole three hours? It'll be kind of like a baseball no-hitter --the closer he gets to pulling it off, the more of a nail-biter it'll be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03am Parq:

My NY res, by the way, is as always -- I'll see what I can do.
  10:04am Pete L:

Ammons and Stitt = HIP - thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04am crateslinger:

My new year's resolution is five-fold. Quit drinking, quit smoking, lose weight, call my mother more, and get some virtual reality glasses.
  10:04am neil who is WILD, man:

Assuming each one is, on average, 3:30 long means he needs about 51 discrete songs with no repeats. Good luck Chris!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06am crateslinger:

In summation, my new year's resolution is to stop being a loser and become wonderful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06am Ken From Hyde Park:

Plus, the station ID was about 20 seconds. Chris M is not messing around.
Avatar 10:07am Whosondephone:

Amaqzing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08am annie:

get your mother skype, crateslinger..
  10:08am neil who is WILD, man:

I been hyp-no-tized! I read on Wikipedia that this song may be about a prostitute leaving the business to go back and live with her mother. Also, Tiny Tim covered this!
  10:11am neil who is WILD, man:

OH, my bad, he needs sixty assuming the average song is 180 seconds long....not like I said earlier....
Avatar 10:11am nathaxn walker:

So far, 1962 has the most Blackbird of any year!
  10:14am neil who is WILD, man:

This is radio history! Also, what can this do to our MINDS, man? OH the humanity!
  10:15am neil who is WILD, man:

@Chris-you are allowed to take a break you know!
Avatar 10:17am ottovonbqe:

Man, 1962 was a bonanza year for BBB
  10:18am V Priceless:

Hey Chris! Fun show! Reminds me of my sis who gigs with Duchin. This is one of their standards, of course!
Avatar 10:19am Chris M.:

@V Priceless: thanks! what's Duchin?
  10:20am Dean:

I'm the lawyer for the estate of Ray Henderson, who died 45 years ago today. Can I have a word with the DJ after the show?
Avatar 10:23am Chris M.:

@Dean: yes, you can email me with the contact form at the bottom of this playlist page
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25am crateslinger:

Has it been three hours already? Wow, that just flew by! Nice one Chris!
  10:26am Dean:

I'd issue the cease-and-desist right here, but I'm enjoying the show too much. Please don't cease or desist. (What does "desist" mean?)

I hope Chris isn't in trouble.
Avatar 10:28am Marcel M:

Woah woah...whats been going on here?

the great thing about this show is i didn't *miss* anything while i was in the kitchen. perhaps some unique stylin'.. but hey i got my imagination..
  10:33am neil who is WILD, man:

@ Dean-what does "mean" mean?
Avatar 10:33am Chris M.:

@Cecile: playing the Motorhead version next
  10:33am Dean:

Chet Baker due soon? Joe Cocker? Meat Puppets? (Made up the last one.)
  10:33am JimmyfromKearny:

I'm digging this; I used to sing this song with a Scottish Cat in a few bars in Kearny...

OK, in 2016 I'm going to shave my face more and also groom other body hair to please my wife.
  10:34am Dean:

@neil: "Mean" means not nice. Otherwise, it depends on what the meaning of "is" is.

Everybody hates birds.
  10:36am tranewreck:

Best show ever
  10:36am Dean:

Just be grateful this isn't a show devoted to "76 Trombones." Right now we'd be up to 1672 trombones.
  10:37am Ike:

Hi @Jimmy! Sing this one on the Goddamn Dave Hill Show sometime, will ya? How's tricks? You're not resorting to living in the abandoned Pathmark on the waterfront yet, are you?

Did I miss anything!? GO CHRIS!
  10:39am neil who is WILD, man:

Anybody in here remember a supermarket -a real supermarket full sized-in way downtown below Chinatown in Manhattan back in the 90's?
  10:41am JimmyfromKearny:

Ike: close, very close...
  10:42am smallybiggs:

Much better than that public radio station that plays "what are you doing New Year's Eve " for the entire day.
  10:44am smallybiggs:

There's something offputting about this Spanish
  10:45am JimmyfromKearny:

In a 1980 film, "Melvin and Howard" Jason Robards, who played Howard Hughes, sang this song while Paul LeMat drove...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46am Ike:

Yeah @Neil, that was also a crappy Pathmark. It was on Henry St. or Pike St. or something near the FDR.
  10:47am smallybiggs:

James Last vs Ray Connif
  10:47am katy:

I realize I don't pay much attention to jazz when I only just realized you've been playing the same song for half an hour
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48am Ike:

Yeah @SB, my Spanish is horrendous but even I could tell that was a pretty lumpy translation. Jose needed to take more poetic license and smooth it out a little.
  10:49am neil who is WILD, man:

@Ike-thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49am Jeezy:

This is GENIUS.
  10:50am Dean:

So Mark Murphy was channeling Sammy Davis, Jr., all that time.
  10:51am JimmyfromKearny:

Can't wait to hear the version by the "Heavens Gate Choir" circa 1997...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51am Risky:

@Jimmy was just thinking that haha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54am crateslinger:

That gross-out Pathmark was kinda lower LES tho, not really Chinatown... I mean back then. Now Chinatown is almost that far east.

Hey Chris, Don't ever let 'em tell you you ain't got balls, kiddo!
  10:55am rich:

great show chris. happy new year.
  10:57am neil who is WILD, man:

@crateslinger-I used to walk there from 3 Clinton Street (avenue B) and Houston. Another lifetime.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57am Ike:

Actually for the big finale, Chris could take a call from Jimmy at 11:55 and have him sing this song over the air. And then he could mark it on the playlist as a 2015 rendition.
  10:57am Dave:

You're my hero

I used to go to the C town on 10th and C. Probably still there. That was back when NYC was cool, man. Now it sucks! All the people smiling in their sweaters.
  10:59am from quebec:

the subtle play of commas in the middle column is riveting.
1969 ... this is clearly going to be a 2 or even 3-part show. I'll be listening!

Neil I think so. Somebody named Marta anyway. That was "umbrella house". I think they own it now. I knew a lot of folks there, but that was a more serious house and I was one of the snotty drunken punks that kept the working people up at night.

there probably will not be enough Aquaman in there for me.

that Captain America movie is also going to be amazing. I loved the last one. Real fight scenes, no cutting away.

Too bad no one has recorded a version with Thomas Pynchon's lyrics: Got a hardon in my fist/don't be pissed/ Re-enlist/ Snap to Slothrop/ Jackson I don't give a fuck/Just give me my Ruptured duck/ Snap to Slothrop/ No one here can love or comprehend me/ They just look for someplace else to send me/ Tap my head and mike my brain/ Stick that needle in my vein/ Slothrop, snap to!

Annie if you're from here then you're more new yorker than I. I can put on an accent when ordering lumber or dealing with a trucker, but I am just a white boy from Massachusetts when you get right down to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37am Mike East:

@Cecile - I'm sure you're rich enough already if you don't mind living with 3 or 4 roommates.

in my mid-20s, i spent a lot of time there; stayed with my aunt in the bronx.. rode the train everywhere, went to the lincoln center.. it was a blast! fell in love with my cousin. it was all innocent, nut we felt we fit like a glove personality-wise. i loved those days

@Cecile - its what I keep telling my wife when she forgets why we had to let go of my sweet Brooklyn apt. when we got married.
Avatar 11:40am Cecile:

crates, I think the rule is if you can live there 2-3 years, you're a New Yorker. For me, I will never be a Minneapolitan, but if I had kids, they would be. It's weird.

Brooklyn is so huge and varied. Southern Brooklyn has so many people from all over the world -- Mexicans, Uzbeks, Chinese, Russians, Turkish, and many more, and still lots of Italians and some Poles too. Just walking around is always fascinating, but I had to search assiduously to find an affordable apt.

I just moved from Minneapolis to Lancaster County, PA. I lived in Minneapolis for 5 years and although I loved it, it was never going to be my home. I am not from PA, but my partner is, and it feels more home-like already! I am from FL originally. That was too much 411, alas.

I lived in NYC from 1989 until 1994-ish. For the arts such as music and visual arts there is no beating it for variety of stuff to do....Dropped out/burned out of Cooper Union Architecture school.....
Avatar 11:48am nathaxn walker:

Cecile - That is my experience too! There isn't as much 'to do' here as in MPLS by far, for us or the kids, but it makes up for it by having the kids' school like literally in our backyard and everyone is extremely personable!

I have grown to love Mpls, and I have some great friends there, but with very few exceptions, they are all out-of-towners or natives who had things happen to them that made them somehow different.

There was a great crusty scene in minneapolis in the 80s and early 90s. It was like a sister city to NYC. Kind of reminded me of Seattle.

you do, PI.

The parks in MLPS are unparallelled, as are the libraries! they have such a great public library system! I might miss that the most! Crust is still alive & well in MPLS!
