Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hey, Kurt....Happy New Year. Reading up on "Funnel of Love." It was the B-side of "Right or Wrong" and it featured Roy Clark on guitar.
  8:12pm V Priceless:

Hey Kurt! Happy New Year to all!
  8:12pm Katherine in Seattle:

Happy new year, Kurt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Scraps:

There's a very good cover of Funnel of Love by the Jody Grind, the band that Kelly Hogan came out of
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Scraps:

Hey Katherine, I was born in Seattle, and presently in Snohomish county
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Shall I compare thee to a winter's funnel?
...Orbison only sang that way one day to make a record. Nobody could sing like that - like - all the time
  8:15pm ?:

10 min & I'm hooked. Short songs are good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Mark the Sardine:

Great set!
  8:19pm Katherine in Seattle:

I see messages - but a pencil and paper is sometimes good! Also: cassettes.
  9:07pm JakeGould:

@UncleMichael: But has Jeff Moore achieved sentience yet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Uncle Michael:

I've often wondered the same thing, Jake.

I'm a sucker for Bacharach tunes for reasons unbeknownst to me....

Katherine, I've been in NewYork for thirty years, and I learned about FMU very soon when I moved there. I only moved back recently
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm melinda:

He was a great tunester, ngh.
  9:17pm P-90:

The tasty surface noise perfectly compliments my bittersweetly nostalgic New Year's mood
Avatar 9:17pm northguineahills:

true, melinda, very true!
  9:20pm Katherine in Seattle:

Scraps - ah, I see...it is great to be able to listen in online
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Uncle Michael:

This polka is glorious.
Avatar 9:23pm northguineahills:

This loituma sounds like doo-wop filtered by polka.
Avatar 9:24pm northguineahills:

ok, maybe not as much at the end...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Uncle Michael:

I was thinking Free Design at Oktoberfest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Webhamster Henry:

WFMU used to play a lot of Värttinä too!
  9:29pm P-9O:

Now here's a track that Gaylord would have played. Not that that's a significant measure of anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Scraps:

Ah, Värttinä!
  9:32pm P-9O:

I wanna be intoxicated like Serge is intoxicated

thanks for hanging in there, everyone! i'll fill in the middle part of the playlist later tonight. sorry for the tech problems.
  9:47pm P-90:

Really great show, but I find myself waiting for the Debbie Reynolds tribute. Not that I expect to hear one, but I'm waiting for it anyway. Capricious creature that I am.
  9:51pm V Priceless:

thanks Kurt! Cool show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Uncle Michael:

Yes, thank you Kurt.

Avatar 9:56pm northguineahills:

Thanks Kurt, gotta run!
  9:57pm P-9O:

Thanks Kurt. Hope to hear some Mini Minotaurs again soon.
  9:58pm zmz:

Gayload shoes were apparently too small. Sutockhausen next!
Avatar 9:58pm geezerette:

It's been swell ! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm Webhamster Henry:

This was a nice way to kick off the year - a little bit of nods to Gaylord as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...So - is Kurt riffing on the Gaylord thang like an Eastern Bloc nation trying to reverse-engineer a Parisian cultural expression
- & of course it turns out something else, but happens to be uniquely fascinating & affecting anyhow?
...Probably no, & definitely yes.
