  7:04am David in London:

I’m listening to this in an English country garden (not London today) which is full of birdsong. Getting DJ bed birdsong as well is adding an extra layer. I keep wondering which is real, and which Is recorded.

Good God, Always August! I bought this EP on SST when it came out in the late 80s. I thought they were going to be massive, but sadly it just didn’t pan out that way. They were amazing. No one sounded like this at the time

Avatar 8:14am Jeff Conklin:

@Vincent: Lol...thanks?
  8:15am prudy:

warbling is ok by me unless it goes on and on and takes over the song, except in music like that featured in Oh brother where art thou, which seams like it was written to feature warbling...
  8:15am prudy:

affected warbling is wrong...
Avatar 8:16am Linda Lee:

yes, it is. :-D
unfortunately it usually sounds affected to me.
Avatar 8:17am Jeff Conklin:

There are several in the HV, but you guessed well. I was on the Walden-Wallkill section. It now spans Kingston to Walden, and Potown to New Paltz, nearly without interruption.
Avatar 8:34am Jeff Conklin:

@James: Awesome. Need to get my bike on there. I mostly hit the mountains...

Avatar 8:35am Linda Lee:

yes, John. i'm sure i'm on some enemies' list now. :-D
Avatar 8:36am James Douglas:

@Jeff: Sweet. There is direct (free if you use it) access to Mohonk Trails from the Rosendale-New Paltz section of the rail trail. Perfect for mountain bikers.
  8:36am prudy:

right LL i clicked the star and I get that screen. Also, the fmu stream is "non-secure" even though my internet is secure. Whatever! will email Ken..
Avatar 8:38am Linda Lee:

yes, prudy! do that! i'd advise anyone who'd like seeing Jeff on the schedule: write Ken.
