Hello, this Bill Frisell is lovely
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09am

hey, A!
i haven't been asleep in 40 hours and i may not sleep tonight but i hope so so if i disappear i have a reasonable reason.

Is scharpling on tomorrow?
Avatar 12:10am

40 hrs. damn... I always feel pretty squirrel-y if that happens

scharpling moved to sunday 3-6 AM

Pretty far out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16am

yeah it's not great.
...it's Bowie's fault! i was close to getting to bed when i got the word. and,worse- i was nursing a hangover all day yesterday after not enough sleep the night before.
...if you'd asked me a week ago how i'd be affected when David Bowie dies, i would not have suspected it to be this profound.
Avatar 12:18am

ouch, haven't slept well in a couple days now, look forward to demain's un-disturbable day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18am

$BAGS- and he changed his/her name; and his/her show is good.
Avatar 12:19am

I was never a hardcore Bowie fan like some people. but he definitely left his mark in important ways

I was up 2 hours past my bedtime when Therese broke the news, then I couldn't sleep
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am

i am by no means a bowie hardcore, just a casual lover. wasn't expecting to be slammed by his death, but i was, and am.
Avatar 12:21am

what jj said. listening to the sound of his singing voice when he's really belting it out takes on a whole other feeling now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26am

Alej - i totally dug albums 3,4,5,&6 then with some reservation until low & heroes, which i loved; then gave him 3 chances and gave up on him with let's dance.
...but now i think i've missed some solid releases here and there.
daveB from Oakland:

Damn you for doing such a great show, Jesse :) :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29am

- yeah,and then friday i heard some of his new album and loved it immediately.
maybe that has something to do with why i'm hit so hard. i suddenly, after decades of not caring, was psyched about a Bowie album.
Avatar 12:31am

I love this America played with omnichord . Thnx for playing.

The Frowie Show! Sounding good jj!
Avatar 12:35am

I am enjoying Blackstar the more times I hear it... so dark-sounding
Avatar 12:36am

mean bass+drums
Avatar 12:38am

Seems as if he'd been listening to some Scott Walker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47am

through all the years of not liking his contrived hit songs on commercial radio,and not liking many of his masks, i still read interviews and such; and i should say- the more i learned the more i respected and liked him...so i was very happy when i heard blackstar and it sounds so honest and pure and passionate, because that's what i always wanted from him- having grown to like him as a person.
daveB from Oakland:

there was definitely some mutual admiration between Scott Walker and Bowie. Look up "1997 Scott Walker birthday greeting to David Bowie". Bowie gets pretty emotional about it.

totally identify with bowie's death hitting you harder than expected - i've always liked and appreciated him and returned to some favorites of mine from him in a comfortable way, but never delved deep into his discography like I did with Lou Reed - but now suddenly I'm hit much harder by his death than I expected, in a distant but very real way - harder than I was by Lou Reed's death, in fact - somehow it seems more impossible that Bowie could die. In retrospect he felt kind of foundational - he's the guest room in my house that I only used occasionally but that allowed an occasional intimacy which I took for granted. Now it's like, when friends visit, they're gonna have to not drink too much and leave by 10pm because that guest room is gone..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53am

+1 to everything you just said.

Hi Jesse from Oberlin - great show tonight!

To me, David Bowie dying was weird because… The man charted his whole career perfectly… He timed and choreographed so much in what he did… And then he not only dies a few days after his last album is released… But also a few days after his birthday? I mean… Shit. That is… Shit. Really? Think about that? That’s like a bricklayer dying after the last brick on a building is laid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01am

ha! yeah the guest room's gone. what happened, it just popped off the house? right, it seems impossible.
...when i first read the news, my reaction was to think it's a hoax!..a Paul McCartney!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07am

Jake,it's like, "okay,it's done.it sounds good and it's been released. now i may die."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08am

i dig this Yonatan Gat.

@coelacanth: Pretty much. That is what “creeps” me out a bit. I’m sad he’s gone but when timing like that happens. Yeesssh. I start to want to look at star charts and such.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15am

i'm open to a lot of things; but the power of the human mind,the mind-body relationship, and the "6th sense", seems to me the most powerful tool we have.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17am

...but there could be physiological explanations too.

...or he's just as extraordinary as he always seemed!
Avatar 1:19am

Unknowable, as this Guardian piece puts it
Avatar 1:26am

didn't know the story behind Bowie's eyes... So his friend George Underwood punched him in the eye fighting over a girl, left him with the permanently dilated pupil. they stayed friends and he did the artwork for Ziggy Stardust & Hunky Dory.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34am

ha! it's the least he could do right?!

Hey kids. Yeah... weird, right?

I like this Elyse W. record. What I've heard of it anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52am

hi rw...
okay Jesse radio on-lights off. i've taken valerian,melissa, skulcap,tryptophan,melatonin,magnesium,niacin (etc)...and i still might not sleep; but i might, so now i Thank you.
good night everyone.
rest in peace David Bowie...or do whatever it is you do at this point- but with peace.
...same to Paul Bley,Otis Clay, etc etc.....

night coela, good luck with the ZZZ's

Later coelacanth! Hope you get some rest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56am

sweet dreams (hopefully), coelacanth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57am

(if i dont i'll see you on Samantha's playlist!)
Avatar 2:08am

I'm out for tonight as well (maybe) ZZZ's until the other side. 24 hrs on the nose now of Bowie's passing.

'night A! It's been a strange 24 hrs.
