Favoriting May 29, 2018: Goodbye Ruby Tuesdays, Hello Wednesdays, Gently Mixed Days @7pm!

Irene, gently mixing@wfmu

Station Manager Ken has asked me to try a new venture for the summer. My shows will air on Wednesdays at 7pm. Irene Trudel-Gently Mixed Up is what I'll be calling this hour-long show, presenting live performances exclusively. I hope to return to a regular mixture of recorded music and live performances next September.

Listener comments!

Eugene R.:

Better one hour a week than no hours a week (like last Summer). We shall persist!

Listener John from NJ:

Hello all! I look forward to your Wednesday sh0ws and more 3 hour shows next fall.

Starting next week, Irene? Or tomorrow? Missed you last summer, so agree with Eugene.

So isle of dogs was pretty good right?
Avatar 9:10pm

Switching gears, for a while.

Irene Trudel:

Hi everybody! Yes. it's true-- I'll be moving to Wednesdays at 7pm starting next week. And it will be exclusively a live music program. But better that than nothing. I have several great live sessions already recorded, so it will be a bit of work to edit but still plenty of music. And yes, Switchblade Batman, I really enjoyed Isle of Dogs, which we saw yesterday. And I love that album by West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm

I will GREATLY miss this show, Irene! One of the (if not, THEE) best show on FMU. But looking forward to the live shows on Wednesdays.

Hellos. Thanks for the updates.

Sometimes a song like that, I can't post during it.

Ooo I like

"What If I Said You Were Dead" is the second Elk City song i've heard. both hella good.

You know, the 1 hour shows on this station are pretty solid. So hey, I think you can make this work! Has there ever been a purely live WFMU show before? I trust your work on this, Irene!

If anyone can pull that off, it's Irene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm
Irene Trudel:

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Jeff! Jake, there were two shows on WFMU featuring live music in the past-- Nick Hill's Live Music Faucet, where I gained a lot of my engineering skills, and Live at the Stork Club. But there hasn't been one strictly for a while.

why does this remind me of big blood
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm
Irene Trudel:

andrewb, can you suggest a tune of theirs? I'm one of the few that don't really know Big Blood's music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm
Irene Trudel:

Going back to the live music show idea, part of why I started doing it on my own shows is taht I loved doing those sessions with Nick and Stork so much. I couldn't seem to find enough people to consistently help engineer on my daytime shows, and since I had the skills, I just decided to do it myself. These days I have a couple of great, young engineers eager to help (thanks Bryn Scharenberg!) My options are a lot better these days. However, I do love also doing a regular record/CD show, so I'm hoping to get back to it next schedule.

Was there ever a band named Novocaine?
Avatar 10:09pm

Will: I dunno. There was a band called Blue Cheer, another called Morphine.

Yes, Irene the music tonight is wonderful. // Ah, "From Bergen, Norway, ladies and gentlemen, it's Novocaine!"
Avatar 10:26pm

There's an Opium Eater metal band over in New Zealand. Will, ya got me going...

Now that my Novocaine question has been answered, an immediate thanks for that Scott Tuma piece, coulda gone on forever for me.

Hello, Irene, from somewhere south of NJ. Happy early birthday and good luck with the early hour. I'll miss waking up screaming to a howling Professor Dum Dum but that is the price we pay.

Hi Irene, thank you so much for a wonderful show.

Thanks for the kind words, KP! Hope you both escaped that horrible flooding. And thanks Manolo.
Avatar 11:04pm

Yes. That seems close but there was no hint of it here and we are right on water.

Looking forward to your new show on Wednesdays, but looking forward even more to your return to the three hour show
