Are you sure you’re not Dave Mandl?!?
Avatar 10:12pm Adamsworth:

Jeff is this boot online somewhere?
Avatar 10:14pm Adamsworth:

I clapped for that Richard Thompson song...
  10:14pm phat:

This show consistently features music it would not occur to me to look up or listen to. Some of it is ridiculously obscure to me. I love it. Discovering new artists, in genres I wouldn't necessarily look through, that I enjoy, and have never even heard of, is a distinct pleasure. I love this show.
Avatar 10:14pm Jeff Conklin:

@Adam: Yes. If you can't find it, email me.
  10:15pm phat:

haven't even heard of is a distinct pleasure.
Avatar 10:15pm Adamsworth:

Now I'm clapping for this Matt Valentine song, wtf. Did I take some DMT and forget about it???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm parkfencerman:

Finally able to listen live after years of archiving. Digging the new MV jam
Avatar 10:17pm Adamsworth:

@Jeff, found it, thanks!
  10:21pm Jeff Conklin:

Thanks Phat.

Good evening all.
  10:24pm Carmichael:

@phat, that’s the joy of FMU. Throw a few bucks their way during pledge time. Best station ever.
  10:28pm phat:

I pledge every year.
Avatar 10:31pm slugluv1313:

@ phat -- yes, what Carmichael said!
i love that most everything is totally new and unfamiliar to me -- even if it is a piece of music from decades ago :)
Avatar 10:31pm slugluv1313:

  10:32pm Carmichael:

I come here to learn. From the learned.
Avatar 10:32pm northguineahills:

What slugluv1313 said... been here since MV...
Avatar 10:35pm Hams:

only in the second sky so far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm parkfencerman:

Any recommendations on where to start with the tuluum shimmering catalog? Is it mostly in this zone?
Avatar 10:36pm TDK60:

Hey I feel...funny..
  10:37pm Carmichael:

@ngh, are we talking years now? Whoa, it’s been at least 25 for me. Time flies when you’re having fun.
Avatar 10:38pm TDK60:

Was that a minute ago? I thought it was 2 hours...
Avatar 10:38pm Jeff Conklin:

All Tuluum shimmering is great but start with "Dark Star" ;)
  10:40pm Carmichael:

This Tuluum is amazing.
  10:43pm phat:

@Carmichael: I wish I've been here since 1005 CE, aka MV! ;p

Respect for naming all the personnel on a jazz song in tradition of other proper radio stations.
