Bien sur.
Hello, Tony, from the autumnal shores of the mighty Bay of Fundy.

Hey, hey, L.J. and Sem!!

Hello Tony ,hello all
Avatar 12:06pm Tony Coulter:

Hello there, Psychspaniolos!
Avatar 12:09pm Tony Coulter:

Two things I learned from preparing this show: 1) music from Quebec is really quite distinct from music from the rest of Canada. 2) French Canadian vocalists are divided between those who use a standard-sounding French and those who really ramp up the Quebecois accent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Webhamster Henry:

I like Québécois folk music, and their duck-like accents.
Avatar 12:18pm Tony Coulter:

Hamster! Heya!
  12:22pm Psychspaniolos:

very nice Roger Rodier's Lp
Avatar 12:23pm Tony Coulter:

Yeah, it's a great one...

BIG THANKS to Sem for his generous pledge!! Came in last week, post-show
Avatar 12:36pm Tony Coulter:

Big thanks also to FMU's own TomDash for his pledge!! YAY!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm chris:

bonjour, Tony and folks. i'm really digging these selections.
Avatar 12:37pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Chris! Glad you're liking 'em!
Avatar 12:58pm northguineahills:

Don't think I have anything from any of these bands.... only three of them look familiar.
Avatar 1:00pm Tony Coulter:

Hola, NGH! Offenbach had a record or two released in the States -- they made a faint ripple here in the '70s.
Avatar 1:10pm Tony Coulter:

This Plume Latraverse album on now has quite an, um, "unique" cover. Really don't understand how it slipped by, on a major label, no less: disqueslp.blogspot.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm Webhamster Henry:

@ngh - hurricane coming your way? During "King Tide" season? Get out those airboats!
Avatar 1:25pm northguineahills:

Well, my company has some airboats, but they're down in the Everglades. I'm under a Tropical Storm Watch, and the next county west has a Hurricane Watch. I'll probably find a sheltered place to park my car tomorrow.
Avatar 1:31pm northguineahills:

Any representatives of non Quebecois francophones, (Ontario, the Maritimes,). Heck even in Maine they have francophones.
Avatar 1:32pm Tony Coulter:

Could be: I didn't check every artist's papers.
Avatar 1:34pm Tony Coulter:

My paternal grandmother was a francophone from Newfoundland, so I know not all Canadian frogs are from Quebec.
Avatar 1:42pm βrian:

J'aime bien les grenouilles.
Avatar 1:43pm Tony Coulter:

Bonjour, βrian!
Avatar 1:44pm βrian:

Francophones in northern VT, too.
  1:45pm Dean:

Was confused for a moment by Pollen, which is also the title of French band Pulsar's first album.
Avatar 1:46pm Tony Coulter:

HEY! We really need some pledge action around here!! Otherwise, Quebec may take offense. We wouldn't want to provoke a diplomatic incident, would we?
Avatar 1:46pm northguineahills:

Thanks Tony, off to lunch!
Avatar 1:46pm Tony Coulter:

Greets, Dean!
Avatar 1:46pm Tony Coulter:

See ya, NGH!

Just as you mention lunch, the spirit of Egg appears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm steveo:

hey there Tony; er i mean bonjour
  1:48pm Dean:

One Egg is enough.

My son is taking French in middle school. I wonder if he can get extra credit for listening to today's show?
Avatar 1:48pm Tony Coulter:

Bienvenue, Steveo!
Avatar 1:50pm βrian:

Siri is a francIphone. I speak to her from time to time, and *sniff*, she understands me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm steveo:

merci. j'aime cette sloche.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58pm steveo:

Definitions of sloche
Forme Fautive*
Anglicisme pour gadoue, neige fondante. [slush. tres canadien]
Avatar 1:59pm Tony Coulter:

Was just wondering if sloche meant slush! Guess it does....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm steveo:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm steveo:

& i learnt th eword gadoue
Avatar 2:06pm βrian:

But no such thing as sloche funds, as far as I can tell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Webhamster Henry:

Now to break out my collection of Dirty Plotte comix.
Avatar 2:09pm βrian:

Interestingly, one particular definition of slush in the OED: "The refuse fat or grease obtained from meat boiled on board ship."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Webhamster Henry:

I have a lot of comix from "Drawn & Quarterly"'s artists.
Avatar 2:12pm Tony Coulter:

@ Webhamster Henry: Funny you should mention Dirty Plotte!! I've just been revisiting those myself. And my comix collection in general, mostly assembled in the '90s and set aside for years. I've got lots of Drawn & Quarterly titles too -- plus many things from Fantagraphics.
Avatar 2:16pm Tony Coulter:

Portland has a bunch of good comics store, which has been reigniting my interest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm steveo:

very interesting instrumentation on this one
Avatar 2:22pm Tony Coulter:

PLEDGES! PLEDGES! Where are you? Come to me!! I need you now, more than ever....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Michael 98145:

not so arcane, but i just acquired a copy of the new Sandman Universe vol 1 ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm steveo:

oh i meant l'infonie, but this one too :)
Avatar 2:24pm Tony Coulter:

Both of 'em are mainstays of the '70s Quebec scene, for sure.
Avatar 2:25pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Michael 98145! Don't know Sandman -- but then, my comics knowledge is stuck in the '90s.
Avatar 2:27pm Tony Coulter:

YAY!! Big thanks to Steve from Brooklyn for his pledge!!

Keep those pledges coming, people....
Avatar 2:28pm Tony Coulter:

Raôul Duguay (on now) was in L'Infonie
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Michael 98145:

Sandman came out of the mind of Neil Gaiman
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Michael 98145:

liking these tracks, yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Webhamster Henry:

When Julie Doucet moved to NYC, she became less interesting! There was a movie in the works for a while of Yummy Fur's Ed the Happy Clown.
Avatar 2:31pm Tony Coulter:

Ah, Yummy Fur -- another favorite. Don't think it needs to be a movie, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm steveo:

c'est moi, de brooklyn ;)
Avatar 2:33pm Tony Coulter:

Aha, thought so -- but wasn't 100% sure. Thanks again, Steveo!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm steveo:

thanks to you, Tony; yer a gem
Avatar 2:39pm Tony Coulter:

I blush (assuming gems can blush)
Avatar 2:41pm βrian:

Now steveo is wearing his heart on his handle!
Avatar 2:46pm Tony Coulter:

This W.D. Fisher track has a bit of a Caravan sound, methinks
Avatar 2:51pm βrian:

The stream just dropped out. It seems my internet connection had a petit mal seizure.
Avatar 2:51pm Tony Coulter:

Better tie it down so it doesn't hurt itself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm chris:

enjoyed very much. thanks, Tony!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm listener james from westwood:

Been busy as a beaver but I'm slapping my tail in joy at this series of specials—thanks!! (Don't let the fur trappers find me!)
  2:58pm Psychspaniolos:

A perfect show...thanks so much Tony. Goodbye all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Zetti:

Wonderful, Thanks
Avatar 2:59pm Tony Coulter:
