I had a feeling you'd set it off with Gil. Thank you.

Right on
Avatar 12:01pm slugluv1313:

good afternoon, Duane
you hit it perfectly -- it truly is Winter in America (and i am "old" enough to remember Watergate!)
sad and shocked but my resolve is stronger than ever
  12:02pm JakeGould:

Good thing I didn't drink last night because I can't sprint this marathon.

Peace with all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm JP from KC:

Ah, Gil Scott-Heron. You are well received. I needed that this morning. Thanks, Duane!
Avatar 12:02pm alanr:

perfect start!!!
Avatar 12:02pm PKNY:

Over this election season, I thought to myself more than once "I'd sure like to hear Gil's take on what's going on".

It's been Winter In America for quite some time now.

This was my first song at 7 this morning, too. I feel you, Duane.

let's huddle together for warmth on the train
Avatar 12:04pm Polyus:

Really glad to be here too, Duane.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm JP from KC:

Is this train headed to Canada, perchance? I'm updating my passport as we speak.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm chris:

hi, Duane and fellow passangers, i can tell you drinking whiskey did not help me understand what the fuck happened yesterday... glad to be here, though, beginning a new day ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm Matt F:

Glad you are on the air right now Duane.

Wow--Louis and Leon together! I had no idea this existed. Consider my mind blown.
Just what we need today.

Hi, folks. Not all is lost: "Make America Train Again!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11pm blee:

Stay strong and stay sane, everyone. We need strength now, more than ever. We may have a racist, sexist, hatemonger fascist entering the White House, but we don't have to accept him. We can oppose his rhetoric of fear and divide. He says hate, we say love.

This is the one train I want to be on, though I feel like standing in front of an oncoming one right now.
Avatar 12:21pm HarktheUmpire:

Thank you for playing this, Duane. I really need this now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm blee:

We do have the music.
  12:25pm Cecile:

Can you play that one song by that Motown group with the openly gay singer? Or the Miracles "everyone's gay in LA" or Hercules and Frankie Knuckles " Blind"
  12:25pm Cecile:

I trust your taste and I can always YouTube it. But there is something about communal listening...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Webhamster Henry:

I'd be happy if you just play Nina Simone for the next 2 1/2 hours
  12:26pm Cecile:

Or Sylvester.
  12:28pm Cecile:

That too, Henry.
  12:28pm Cecile:

Or Billy Paul.

Right on, Duane!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Philthy woman:

Right on Duane. Thank you. This feels devastating but if it is not a call to action, to be our best and love what we have- nothing is.
Avatar 12:33pm Cheyenne:

This is great, Duane. Thanks! <3

Good point Duane. I pledge to use my place of male privilege to really try and achieve equality for women (in the workplace, wherever).

Well said Duane! Thank you!!
Avatar 12:35pm PKNY:

I have a heavy heart now, but at some point I need to perform that inner alchemy to turn this feeling into something positive and productive. Thanks to Duane and the 'iacs for the touching words and so-necessary selections today.

  12:39pm LizaJane:

The permission to let go of anger and fear is powerful. Thanks Duane. We'll get lost and need to keep hearing it, but it's a good start.
  12:40pm PJ:

Duane, thanks for the message. There is so much work to do, and it is going to be difficult, but there's nothing else for it.
  12:41pm thatsyourtrouble:

Thank you so much for what you just said, Duane. It meant a lot. I just sent your quote to a friend: "Anger and fear got us here, and the only way we can combat fear is to love those who fear us."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm rbxbx:

<3 thanks for this today Duane

Good afternoon, Duane, and the temporarily bereaved. The death of a loved one is mourned, and then the light comes again. That's why its called a wake.

great set today, as always.
  1:24pm joel:

yesss.. everything needs love.. i need this. love the bridge and the vocal is gorgeous. thanks!
  1:29pm Ari:

What I love about today's set is that you are really working a distinct vibe all the way through: ultimately hopeful, but with an undercurrent of knowing sadness. It's really holding together in a wonderful way. And so on target.
  1:34pm Kimbers:

Duane -- your show is the perfect salve for this Nov. 9th catatonia. Thanks, man!
Avatar 1:34pm Jshatan:

I loved your soliloquy - and the music has been perfect - thank you.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Mike East:

@glenn - something I've been wanting to ask you....is your health care system a catastrophe? That's a statement that our pres elect made in a debate that's had my head spinning. Are there any Canadians who would agree with that statement?
Avatar 2:08pm glenn:

no, it's not a catastrophe. it's chronically underfunded, thanks to various right wing governments, but for the most part, it works very well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm jmd:

This track is hitting the spot. Thanks Duane.
  2:11pm Greg R.:

I've been searching for a way to get positive today, and this set helps. Thanks Duane, and to the D-trainers/community of listeners. WFMU and free form is a light in this world.
Avatar 2:12pm Polyus:

Our pres elect has a unique take on the facts. You'd almost think he was fabricating stuff.

I'm really enjoying these long cuts, Duane!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Passaic River Blues:

@Cecile: That's right! I want to outfit a school bus with an old school Kingston mega soundsystem and ride through the American "heartland" with Silk Hurley bangers blaring from the speakers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Stanley:

This show has been perfect.
Duane, you risen to the occasion.
