I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Ha! Ever read an e-mail for the second time a week later and realize you don't have to work on New Year's Day because the client wants something "the week of Jan 4" instead of Monday morning? That just happened. See ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm crateslinger:

See ya on the radio that is. Bryce love your show. Happy New Year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Bryce:

ahhhh, new year's miracle! thanks, crateslinger :)

Criminal puns aside, haven't heard this Bayle yet. Lovely bunch of thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Bryce:

i know, right? oh man, the other bit on the cd is a companion piece, same sonic world. one my favorite bayle. i wonder if these cds are still gettable...?

That's a stellar Ferrari piece right there, grittier than usual too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Guido from Cologne:

Happy New Year Bryce & people!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Bryce:

hey, guido! happy new year :)
Avatar 1:44pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

what Fred said.
the delay-ed guitar murmurs bring the mellower early AshRaTempel to mind.

this is the first FMU dose I've had since before xmas break; easing back to reality in style.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm George of Troy:

Last year I was lucky enough to track down a copy of the massive 12 CD Bayle box that INA-GRM released a while back. It's really an amazing selection of music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Bryce:

oh, cool! brian turner, god bless him, somehow managed to snarf a copy for the fmu library. ferrari sure left behind a body of work. bless him too.

that and the giant parmegiani box set will keep me going for a while after the gulf stream reverses and society collapses.
Avatar 1:50pm fred:

@RTD: when Bryce is easing you back to reality, you know you're living right
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm Michele:

  1:50pm steve:

anyone read any good music-related books in 2015?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Bryce:

hey, michele! remote happy new year's hug! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm Guido from Cologne:

i read a plenty, but they weren't published in 2015
Avatar 1:54pm doca:

What did you read, @Guido? And BTW, happy new year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Guido from Cologne:

Éphémère sounds like a Riley/Frippertronics-style Tape-/Loop-construction.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Bryce:

hey steve, when you're finished with musimathics....


(the reviews, lol)
Avatar 1:56pm fred:

@steve: Two Dust To Digital releases came with enlightening books: The Ola Belle Reed one and Folksongs of Another America. The music is amazing too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Guido from Cologne:

Well, among the English language books was Janis Ian's auto-biograph, which really reads like a novel. I'm fan of just her "teenage"/60ies albums. But I "swallowed" the book.
Avatar 1:58pm doca:

I've read David Grubbs' "Records ruin the landscape", about recording and the avant-garde scene in the 60s. Great book. He writes as good as he plays and composes.
  1:59pm steve:

hahaha "The book as a whole basically makes no sense"
  2:00pm steve:

thanks Bryce this looks entertaining
Avatar 2:01pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Fred @1:50 -- agreed profoundly.
That, and much coffee. Not unlike that photo over there...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Guido from Cologne:

Two books from the " Labels Unlimited" series:
Rough Trade and Immediate.
Both great, with a lot of history I didn't know.
the Immediate in particular was enlightening. Great storytelling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Ike:

Be sure to make that Amazon link benefit WFMU: smile.amazon.com...
(Choose "Auricle Communications" which is the sinister world-conquering organization that controls WFMU.)
Avatar 2:09pm fred:

@RTD: That picture looks like the kind of coffee cup I should have at work, but my desk is too small. I'm not a doctor, and they take these things seriously here
  2:09pm P-90:

Me LOVE sinister world-conquering organizations!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Bryce:

to be clear, auricle communications is a shell corporation operated by the pantagenet bloodline
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Ike:

Well, duh
  2:16pm P-90:

You mean "Plantagenet", right? Or is there another ruthless dynasty with almost the same name?
Also: loving this Luc, those 12-string guitar textures were like the icing on the sonic cake. This feedbacky part must be the cherry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Bryce:

sorry, i get a little nervous mentioning auricle communications.

  2:27pm P-90:

@Bryce: Thanks for the heads-up on Ernest McClaine. Intriguing. And a little scary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Ike:

Clappy New Year, Fred?
Avatar 2:33pm fred:

@Ike: that works
  2:33pm totally out of the blue:

is the old website gone or is there a mirror somewhere?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Linda Lee:

love the sounds today Bryce! Happy New Year to you!
  2:40pm P-90:

McClain's earlier, foundational, seemingly-more-accessible-at-first-glance "Pythagorean Plato" is available as a pdf at his site: http://www.ernestmcclain.net/Plato_OPTIMIZED.pdf
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Bryce:

hey, linda, thanks! happy new year :)

tootb: not sure if there's a mirror of the web 1.7 home page! so far, tho, it's pretty much the same otherwise
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm Bryce:

oh wow, mr. McC has a website? i actually have The Myth of Invariance, and....as it says on the tin, it's indeed like trying to push your keys & wallet into the middle of a granite boulder
  2:44pm totally out of the blue:

@Bryce: sometimes websites leave a functioning old version intact somewhere, but I guess WFMU does not. I'm asking because I find it hard to navigate, I tend to safari hunt the hamburger menus for the links I seek, and the current playlist link's JS is broken it does nothing, even tho I have JS activated.
  2:45pm totally out of the blue:

oh, I guess I have to deactivate my popup blocker. seriously? popups?
  2:47pm totally out of the blue:

ah, no it's not a popup, sorry. but I thought the playlist reloads in the background when I click PLAYLIST & COMMENTS. It was auto-reload, that got me.
Avatar 2:48pm fred:

@tootb: I think Ken would be very receptive to any comments about what you could do and no longer can on the station's site. Bugs happen, tell him and chances are this will get fixed
  2:50pm totally out of the blue:

really? does the bad experience of one downer matter? I doubt it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Bryce:

ahhhh, the autoreload....

but yeah! there definitely are plennnnty of kinks still being worked out. it's absolutely a work in progress.

feedback does get listened to! ain't exactly clearchannel around here :)
  2:56pm totally out of the blue:

thanks for listening.
for what it's worth, I find it extremely hard to navigate. it could be autism on my part that causes me to fail to get around on the main page or it really is bloated and cluttered now. you pick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Bryce:

happy new year, all! see you next week......
Avatar 2:58pm fred:

@tootb: if there's a better way, he'll tell you. If there isn't, he'll make sure there's one soon. Either way, I think he'll welcome your feedback
  2:59pm P-90:

Thanks and Happy 2016, Bryce
  9:55pm Brian in New Orleans:

Happy New Year from a big fan in New Orleans. Today' show might b one of the best I have ever heard on woofmoo.....from beginning to end!
