Hey Irene , everyone ,, Irene tunes in the evening = heavenly !
  9:21pm Jack:

Hey, first time listening on the app... I love the simple old school look :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Tome! Songs that will make you smile tonight. And Welcome Jack! I like the app epecially for traveling outside the radio range.
  9:28pm JakeGould:

Hey Irene! Was the pic on the playlist tonight taken from a ferris wheel?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Mike East:

We had a carnival right outside our apartment all last week. My kids wanted to go every night, but I was able to limit it to two. Such a ripoff. I think we spent about 60 bucks on ride tickets alone, then of course there's zeppoles and games.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Santos L. Halper:

Hi Irene, sounding great tonight. thanks for the Stackridge
  9:43pm P-90:

Good Evening Dear Irene.
I am really, really enjoying this.
  9:44pm JakeGould:

@MikeEast: Was it like a regular NYC street fair? Like with sock vendors, cheap sunglasses vendors, zeppoles, sausages and such?
  9:46pm herb.nyc:

Hi all. I am using voice to text, please excuse me. I just got back from a screening of Howard's ends at the film forum. Nice upper-class stuff, even though there was unprotected sex as well. Anyway, time for apple and peanut butter, and to listen to the music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Irene Trudel:

Yes, Jake! We had stopped at the top, and fireworks were just starting (didn't get that into the shot thought. And, yeah, Mike. Those carnivals are so expensive!. Thanks Santos!
  9:49pm P-90:

Just saying that I will not be commenting on unprotected sex in Howard's End
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Irene Trudel:

Hi herb! I like the Film Forum. They often show a lot of great films I'd forgotten existed. Never saw Howard's End though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Mike East:

@JakeGould - No, more suburban...San Sebastian Festival in Montclair. Zeppoles and sausages yes, socks and sunglasses, no...except maybe giant novelty sunglasses. I now have a large inflatable pink monkey in my home which cost me $5.
  9:51pm Jack:

Is upper Manhattan in the radio range? I can never get it to receive cleanly here but not sure if that's down to my crap radio rather than geography...
  9:57pm Bronwyn Bishop:

It's a lovely Tuesday evening! Hello everyone! Btw nice John Fahey bed music Irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Tome:

this is making me smile now !
  9:59pm Chucktown Dan:

saw this cat open up for blonde redhead in Chicago this spring. fuckin brought tears to my eyes.
  10:00pm P-90:

@Jack: It's not your radio! Upper Manhattan is a bad teception zone these days. Best is to stream on the website.
  10:02pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Irene Trudel:

Robyn is the best!!
  10:03pm P-90:

@Jack: there was a plan to add a new antenna in Manhattan that would have made all the difference, but FMU had to give up on that when it turned out to be unfeasable.
Avatar 10:04pm Chris M.:

a happy bird is a filthy bird
  10:04pm P-90:

And yes, Robyn rocks
  10:04pm JakeGould:

@MikeEast: “I now have a large inflatable pink monkey in my home which cost me $5.” That’s not too bad a price for an inflatable monkey.
  10:05pm JakeGould:

This bird wants to be a cat so bad. youtu.be...
  10:07pm Jack:

@P-90 Yeah I'm streaming on the app which is how this conversation started. :) Usually use the computer but it died and replacement is still on the way. Wish I could listen on the real radio here, oh well
  10:09pm P-90:

@Jack: personally I think the digital stream is always going to sound best
  10:15pm Jack:

@P-90 But the analog radio feels better :)
  10:17pm Jack:

@Irene I'm near W. 120th and Amsterdam Ave in uptown Manhattan. Very little or no WFMU reception
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Irene Trudel:

P-90 and Jack, where are you located in Manhattan? Maybe we can get our engineer to tweak it if it's out of whack.
  10:17pm herb.nyc:

(reception is fine in lower Manhattan). Oops, no apostrophe in Howards End. But plz use for safe sex. As for carnivals, it's always about the children (yay, my neice gave birth 3 days ago. I once took neice to see New Porn; I hope to take her son to shows)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Irene Trudel:

Jack, had you been able to tune in WFMU before? I know it does get spotty uptown.
  10:25pm JakeGould:

FWIW, I kinda miss those Merchant Ivory films.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm melinda:

I liked Howard's End. I forget what else they did.
  10:32pm herb.nyc:

Mr Ivory was at Friday screening, sold out. So I went tonight and about 30 there. 141 seats in all. Plz see Howard's Rear End (bad joke, sorry). (I just got Keanu DVD from library, meow!!)
  10:42pm Jack:

@Irene no, reception here was never good... moved here a year and a half ago. I think it got even worse sometime in the last year. BTW you get extra love for playing Kurt Rosenwinkel :D
  10:45pm Carmichael:

Heya Irene. On long vacation but finally able to listen and comment. Great setlist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Irene Trudel:

Good to know Jack! We're trying to improve it a bit. BTW, Kurt is playing the Village Vanguard tonight and tomorrow night. Hi Carmichael!e enjoying the downtime.
  10:49pm JakeGould:

@melinda: They’ve made a whole shitload of films such as “The Remains of the Day”, “A Room with a View”, and such. Such a class act compared to modern films. Man, I just said an old person thing! en.wikipedia.org...
  10:51pm P-90:

@Jack, Im listening just a few blocks away from you. Station manager Ken had a deal in the works a few years ago to add a booster transmitter in midtown Manhattan, there was even a special 24-hour mini-marathon to raise funds for it (in 2010, I believe?) but the plan had to be scrapped for various reasons. So until something is worked out, broadcast reception here will stay poor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm melinda:

@Jake: I was thinking of a Room With a View, actually. But I did Howard's End, too. I also saw an early film of theirs that was filmed in India, I think. It's hazy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm melinda:

I did *like* Howard's End. I didn't do Howard's End. sheesh.
  10:59pm herb.nyc:

(Spk'ng of broadcast problems, wnyc's LLopate had a glitch and his show was off for about 7,8" today)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Irene Trudel:

Yikes herb! I'd heard from my co-workers that there was a problem with doubled up audio. This is even worse!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Webhamster Henry:

Merchant/Ivory's third ingredient was Ruth Prawer Jhabavala!
Avatar 11:05pm Mister Dobalina:

This sounds really good !
  11:05pm Jack:

@P-90 Sad it didn't work out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm Irene Trudel:

Don't give up hope! We're still working on it. Oh, and happy birthday, Webhamster Henry!
  11:10pm P-90:

Yes! Let's not forget Ruth. She was a full creative partner in that company. btw, I recommend Ivory's very first film, "Savages", shot on a shoestring budget on Long Island, co-written by a couple of the original National Lampoon guys. With the young Sam Waterston among others.
  11:16pm herb.nyc:

(1) "savages"? I'm curious (2) oops, there WAS doubled audio. I was too broad in my error description, so sorry. (3) Irene said Jazz before. My challenged self can't really handle jazz. Like, why not just ONE z?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm melinda:

I looked at the wiki link and didn't realize they did so many films, many of them not of the genre typically associated with their name. Savages sounds interesting. A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries was also good, forgot it was theirs.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:24pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks Irene! Lovely show as always!
  11:31pm Jack:

@herb This is the explanation I've most often heard as a (sometime) jazz musician: http://www.npr.org/2016/03/19/470879654/the-musical-that-ushered-in-the-jazz-age-gets-its-own-musical
  11:38pm herb.nyc:

@Jack. Thx for link. It made me think of l'Onion: "this Starbucks so big it has its own Starbucks"
  11:43pm Jack:

@herb: haha... @Irene: Proud former resident of the state of Seattle here!

Thank you Irene for another stellar show

Jimmie Spheeris two weeks running. I remember playing Isle of View to death in the mid Seventies. A gentle man, sad way to go.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:11am Brian in UK:

The string arrangements on Spheeris' records were by David Campbell, Beck Hansen's dad. Nice work.
