Just wanted to comment that while I rarely catch your show live, I listen to the archive every week- and past archives when other live WFMU shows suck. Always well done- thank you Blumin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm melinda:

I like Away.
  9:56pm Black Jar Follies:

Thought this (Tren Brothers) was the Dirty Three for a moment.
  9:57pm Black Jar Follies:

Catching up, but I would totally listen to a folk horror radio show. At least until it was unbearable.

“WFMU polo shirts?” What is this? A car dealership?

you know -of course they're gonna hype it up, mostly to try to capitalize on it.
i personally have strong feelings about it, and the soundtrack album, which my older brother whom i shared a room with bought when i was pretty little, was an immeasurable influence on my musical growth.

What is happening in Hong Kong is pretty scary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm coelacanth∅:

Franco i easily imagine that.
i do think it was a significant event at the time though -
though not to say everything about it was. some of it was evidence of how selfish people are or how stupid...but lots of people WERE brave then, unlike now in this country.
i feel all the anniversary concerts/festivals have been a big insult to what i think went down in 1969.

Avatar 11:28pm Franco Twinkie:

If China moves in on Hong Kong, there will most likely be unforeseen economic chaos that Donald Trump will try and spin to his advantage. Result: More people in the street.
Avatar 11:31pm JakeGould:

When China was not a world economic power, Hong Kong was left alone sho money could flow in. Now that China is a massive world economic power, it seems to be planning a move that would make Putin proud… Horrible if they move troops in to say the least.
