A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Wow, nice opener. Feels like I'm taking a magic sleigh ride through outer space.

@queems, a quick Google search determines the local diner I frequent to be in error. It is in fact gravy and cheese on French fries, sort of an American poutine.

That video clip of Moondog is pretty damn precious.
What's this I hear about him (she?) also having musical talent?
(and @ Wild Neil- sorry to hear about your boiler busting; I replaced mine last year. Fun, no. But I did learn about the wonder of "Shark Bite" connections)

The painting looks to me like a cat split in half wearing a gas mask. In the center is the cat's spirit.Behind it is a vaguely cat-shaped park bench.
Avatar 10:01am Wild Neil:

Wish I could listen, but my boss is here. Wish I could donate, but we are barely living paycheck to paycheck and my wife manages our finances. She won't even let me give ten bucks to Cooper Union "because I didn't graduate from there" ..but I did attend for 3 years!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03am Passaic River Blues:

@Wild Neil: I hear you. The 2016 year-end pledge found me in somewhat parlous financial circumstances--better now, but I hear you there.

Good morning trouble!
Great set! I’m headed out to harvest potatoes and carrots, these overnight temps are killing everything. Thankfully we have your DJ skills while we work
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22am Passaic River Blues:

@Itzall Ablurr: my understanding is that over 600 new listeners signed up for Swag 4 Life during this past month's pledge drive. So that's on top of the previous number. Nevertheless, I agree. There should be legions!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22am Trouble:

hola kevlicki! harvest away!
Avatar 11:24am Itzall Ablurr:

MILLIONS. What the actual, folks?!? I for one derive AT LEAST a dollar a day's worth of joy/angst from listening online... sheesh. Freeloaders, there's one in every mom's basement I guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25am Trouble:

i don't know about the 600 # , that does seem low. but we do know that the percentage of peeps who listen regularly and the percentage who donate are not in agreement....sadly so. very disparate numbers unfortunately
Avatar 11:26am Itzall Ablurr:

(The Sachiko Kanenobu song was beautiful, by the way, if tear inducing)
Avatar 11:27am Itzall Ablurr:

Perhaps that number was lobbed out to try and "stimulate" donations, I dunno'. In any case, you got my dough! And it's a dang bargain.
