Oh man - Showdown! This is a go-to track in my DJ sets - great one.
Avatar 3:26pm fred:

This day started horribly with a long and early meeting, but is ending on a high note. (Though that sale at Maison du Whisky with 30-40% off was pretty sweet too)
Avatar 3:27pm kirk from beer city usa:

Showdown into Mother of Mercy = Brilliant
Avatar 3:27pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

overjoyed to see what is happening here.
and with whom it is happening.
and by whom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Carmichael:

This set does sound a bit Turner-esque, I must say.
Avatar 3:31pm Chris from DC:

Liking Haunting a lot.

hi martha; different is why I'm here

Tuesday Kamakazi !

You shouldn't have admitted to this dead air. I thought it was the iPhone
Avatar 3:34pm kirk from beer city usa:

I'll buy that for a dollar
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm steveo:

in case anyone was wondering, the other tracks on Moonee Ponds are Pond Fridge and Microwave Pond
Avatar 3:39pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

Ed Kuepper is pretty cool!
Avatar 3:41pm fred:

@flashbazbo: I she had put that on the iPhone, Apple would have claimed 30% of the station's revenue. I say good move, Martha
  3:44pm Martha:

Thanks all - and yes, Bone Sheriff is great - will be playing more like that - and would be playing even more except it seems to have gotten relegated to the basement -
  3:46pm Martha:

Dead Air: I guess I was just trying to be honest - I think it sounds worse for the DJ than anyone listening...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm steveo:

just provided "slackjawed bitches" to the google lyrics page for this (they had "[unknown] bitches"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm steveo:

  3:56pm rw:

Hello! Listening from Fullerton now. Screw you Rikk A! (Okay, you've got a point. It's cool.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Aaron Working In Newark:

  3:59pm Martha:

I will apologize on his behalf...he isn't in the studio at the moment -
  4:00pm rw:

Martha, I've been having internet issues so we've been getting intermittent dead air. When it comes from WFMU it's kind of charming. When it's because of my service provider it's pretty annoying.
  4:05pm rw:

Also Martha, good to hear you on the radio again! I haven't figured out the summer schedule yet. I'm assuming this is only a fill in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm steveo:

fantastic set; glad to be listening
  4:12pm Martha:

Thanks all for the good words - this was what I was looking for earlier - maybe an acquired taste but a fantastic CD -
Avatar 4:14pm Chris from DC:

Waiting for Great American Desert to cut loose here, but they aren't going to are they? It works.
  4:16pm Martha:

They do on other songs on that disc - love Autumn Wind -

haha; we call the the "one-winged dove" in our family
Avatar 4:28pm Chris from DC:

This into Monument of Urns would be epic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm chris:

hehehe! happy day before your birthday, Martha! break all the laws then skip town, eh? :)
Avatar 4:29pm fred:

Early happy birthday!
  4:33pm foreign_listener_k:

There is a version of this while she is getting her hair done/make-up, I believe - and I cannot find it on the web. Still diving into the data streams, but things come and go
  4:33pm rw:

Yes! Happy Birthday! Have a great trip and play whatever you want whenever you want!

I believe it was Wm.B that exposed my brain to th'Urns, eternal gratitude...

Is it just me or is the volume very lowwwww ..?

the demons have been summoned and fed today. excellent.
Avatar 4:44pm fred:

And that Stevie Nicks to Monuments of Urns segue is what I love about WFMU, and whiplash worthy of BT's show
  4:46pm Martha:

But I wanted to play Public Enemy next!
Avatar 4:47pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

first, we must blaspheme.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm steveo:

recommend as loud as you can take
  4:48pm Martha:

Actually - it is pretty pegged to the red here so I think the volume is OK???
Avatar 4:48pm fred:

@Martha: please, please do that
  4:48pm Martha:

Sorry - I was having trouble posting there for a bit -
Avatar 4:49pm Jeff Moore:

Levels sound good to me...
Avatar 4:49pm fred:

Carm just has to play it louder, as the creator intended
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm steveo:

same -- it just sounds good louder
Avatar 4:51pm Chris from DC:

Oh I have it loud.
Avatar 4:54pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

@RTD: What, you're keeping your coworkers from this greatness?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Michael 98145:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm Carmichael:

This sounds better than the fictional band Megadeath on the National Lampoon's Lemmings album.
Avatar 4:56pm Jeff Moore:

Martha shares blasphemy the old fashioned way... she Urns it.
Avatar 4:59pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

they have to work up to this level of blasphemy... baby steps...
Avatar 5:00pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

All the Urns releases are those 3" CDRs, no? Methinks I have zero machines that can handle those anymore...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm Ken From Hyde Park:

By all rights, I should hate this and turn it off, but it's wonderful. Thanks, Martha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm Michael 98145:

this is somewhat incredible
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm steveo:

i was just thinking astounding
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm chris:

high fives and hugs all around. outfuckingstanding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm steveo:

thanks for the show; gotta run, sadly; happy birthday, martha, have a great trip
Avatar 5:04pm fred:

That was great, so many thanks Martha
  5:04pm Martha:

Some of them are 3" CDs - the early ones - that was I think their third and it is full size - but still gorgeous packaging. And you guys seem to be really into the monument of Urns - I am glad!!!
  5:11pm Martha:

Maybe I should play another track?
Avatar 5:12pm fred:

I'd like to see you back on the regular schedule, but what works best for me probably doesn't work for you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Ken From Hyde Park:

New Yob right after fits nicely with MoU.
Avatar 5:13pm fred:

@Marthat@5:11: Do it!
  5:14pm Martha:

I couldn't apply this summer - am going to be away for too long -

Miss you Martha

- don't destroy your boat to spite your face -
Avatar 5:25pm fred:

This music director uncertainty is really awkward for little record labels I know. They don't know who to contact because Brian contacted them out of the blue
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Fox:

  5:27pm Martha:

Thanks again for all the kind words - the MD situation will be sorted soon and to everyone's satisfaction I'm sure -
  5:31pm Devin B.:

Bang Gang later became The Hickoids
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm common:

Avatar 5:45pm Jeff Moore:

@fred: there should be no awkwardness for record labels.

They just need to communicate with the email address musicdept [at] wfmu [dot] org. The email will go to whoever is handling the Music Director duties - which are currently being handled ably by Joel St. G.
  5:47pm Martha:

@Ghetto Pastrami: I didn't know that - thanks! - I like the Hickolds, haven't listened to them for a while now -
Avatar 5:48pm Jeff Moore:

He's right here clavicle deep in LPs and CDs. He's been doing a great job of keeping the WFMU New Bin full of fresh sounds for DJs to audition.
  5:50pm Martha:

Yep - plus so many record labels distribute now via download ONLY, which creates more work...
  5:51pm Martha:

Back by popular demand...

utterly peak stuff today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Michael 98145:

thank you, Martha !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm common:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm chris:

safe travels and many happy returns, Martha! in gratitude.
Avatar 5:54pm fred:

@Jeff Moore: Sorry, it doesn't work that way. Some had met Brian, and most had been first contacted by Brian. Now they have to contact Joel and like prove where they come from. That's unfair to both sides. I'm sure it will settle down, but the transition is rocky
  5:56pm rw:

Thanks for steering the boat today Martha!

Blank was a Merury subsidiary, I believe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm ultradamno:

Mercury, that is

Just the thing for a semi-drunken train to DC.
Avatar 10:23pm SiHV:

Ah, looking ahead, I see you're playing Monument of Urns. Recently bought their entire discography on Bandcamp; totally worth it.
