Wow, this German thing is AMAZING.

That was so beautiful.

@Donut King maple frosted donut for me, pls

Haplessly listening here
  12:34pm Andrea in Jersey City:

Hi! I’m listening
Avatar 12:35pm James Douglas:

I'm kinda half listening, but that multi-tasking comment woke me up. Women I know think that multi-tasking is a thing, but they are wrong. Everybody's terrible at it.
  12:35pm fletchernyc:

What was the second song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm Doug in JC:

I admit to half listening
  12:35pm fletchernyc:

Between Doug and T.Fanclub?
Avatar 12:37pm Pseu Braun:

fletcher - updated
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Hughie Considine:

Had a wet paintbrush in hand when multi-tasking was mentioned, and I salute the feminine gender!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Doug in JC:

@hughie art painting or house painting?
  12:41pm The Donut King:

Huh, I thought I really didn't like Foo Fighters. This reminds me of that 90s UK band, maybe they were called Arnold(?). Super nice.
Avatar 12:41pm James Douglas:

@Doug Maybe he's multi-tasking and doing both
  12:42pm fletchernyc:

Thanks! Great song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Hughie Considine:

hey @Doug -- art painting, but nothing too elaborate -- a shadowbox for small oddities.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Doug in JC:

@hughie that sounds pretty neat
Avatar 12:45pm Lixiviated Life:

In my youth I would exclusively seek out the creme or jelly filled variety.
Now, having gained the perspective that comes from age, I tend towards the "old Fashion" plain donut, or on occasion the bolder "cruller."
In closing, I stand in solidarity with these immortal words:
"Some people like cupcakes better. I for one care less for them!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Hughie Considine:

@The Donut KIng: Yes, Arnold -- had some majestic spacey pop moments on "Hillside." And I remember loving that Foo Fighters song, then putting away my Foo Fighters CD and kind of relegating it to the past. Pseu's show is great for taking a second listen to songs like that.
  12:50pm The Donut King:

@Lixiviated Life: I've always been a cake donut person - chocolate frosting. But I've got time for a good plain or cruller. Or or or. Even so-so donuts are still donuts.
  12:52pm The Donut King:

@Hughie: yeah, "Hillside" - loved that record. There were some b-sides too as I recall that were lovely. And couldn't agree more about Pseu, I feel like I'm regularly hearing wonderful (and surprising) things by people I'd either written off or never considered in the first place. It's like magic.
Avatar 12:53pm James in ATL:

Hey Hookers! Great start Pseu!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Hughie Considine:

@TDK The magic of radio!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Hughie totally agree. Pseu has made me question my music snobbery as well by playing stuff I assumed I'd never listen to again in this context. Good stuff always.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Phillippe Bastille:

case in point
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm the Master:

Thank you, Sue for this one.

Aaahh, Scott my man. RIP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm Uncle Michael:

What a great Scott track.
  1:15pm KP in DC:

Is Scott Walker the most Wfmu artist ever

that's the down side Pseu.

Go Pseu! But surely none of WFMU listeners are the spoiled brat type, we're all enlightened. ;>/
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Krys O.:

Soooo many folks have mommy issues mixed with authority problems. It might come down to potty training.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Gaylord Fields:

Hiya, Pseu! I’ll be slinging blues sides a week from tonight for Matt F. My timing is poor in that I’ll be unable to present a timely Scott Walker tribute, with my missing last week’s and next week’s show. (And he could fit in a blues format, I guess, but I have other plans for that hour.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Krys O.:

On a different tangent, because you played that lovely Randy Vanwarmer song, I read that he passed away of leukemia and had his remains blasted into space. I salute that.
Avatar 1:43pm Pseu Braun:

love that Krys!

Avatar 1:47pm Lixiviated Life:

I'm not sure I understood all that talk about conversations sat upon but I did enjoy the long rambling walk your talk led us on along the path, past the trees and flowers and hedges that ended at the bridge near the fountain and hey look at those birds, I wonder if they're sparrows or finches, and is that a border collie, and I don't think I have enough money to take the bus downtown especially if this metrocard is expired and I hear that we'll be able to use an app to ride the subway soon but hey listen to that Kiwi Jr.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Gaylord Fields:

Luv ya, Pseu!

@Krys O.: The name “Randy VanWarmer” always reminds me of those ’70s shaggin’ wagons, one of which my dad may or may not have owned during his midlife crisis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm Phillippe Bastille:

@gaylord with heated seats. to, uh, keep it warmer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm Krys O.:

HA! @Gaylord, somehow the name makes me think of Van der Graaf Generator.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Krys O.:

This may seem like a distraction, but I watched John Mulaley's Netflix special, Kid Gorgeous at Radio City Music Hall last night and was pleasantly surprised to see Jon Brion at the Wurlitzer. It was sweet.
Avatar 1:59pm Bic Lighter:

Thanks, Pseu more hooks stuck in me than Elmer the old sturgeon at the bottom of the pond out back!
  2:10pm katharsis:

Oh that’s a catchy beat
  2:13pm prudy:

never heard the reference "shaggin wagons". It's a winner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Mike Sin:

Very much enjoying this "Cosmic Now" track! I did crack a smile regarding the name of the band. ;)
  2:21pm SeanG:

great tunes Pseu
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm danhowl:

Is this a Rickenbacker set, a Rickenblock?
Avatar 2:26pm Bic Lighter:

Pseu is a total Rickenblocker
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm Bill in W.O.:

A lot of killer tracks in this set, Pseu. Definitely crushing the mid-afternoon torpor.
  2:31pm True Dar:

Pseu is the Don Gargon of WFMU broadcasters
Avatar 2:32pm Bic Lighter:

Hey, how do I get the radio and heart icon in the chat? I've been sending literally dozens of $ for years!! How much does it cost? I want a flame icon too.

@True Dar. Apparently! We're at the kid's table!

bic, email pledge@wfmu.org perhaps Joe can tell you!
  2:37pm True Dat:

Pseu will hate me for thinking it's spelled Gargon
Avatar 2:37pm Bic Lighter:

thanks Pseu...harassing Joe-I'll wait til the dust settles a bit with the funding drive!

Joe won't mind
