Going live in about ten minutes, library fans! :-)

And we're on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Rich in Washington:

YAY!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

wheeee!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Jan Turkenburg:

here we go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hey Rich! Hey GST!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm Rich in Washington:

Hi GeorgyGirl!
Hi Granny!
Hi Jan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm Jan Turkenburg:

This reminds me of Alan Parsons Project
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Sit back and let some synth-based library music wash over you :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Jan! Yes, very much so :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Rich, Georgy and GST!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've got five Bruton Music BRI series albums for you today :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Bruton did library music in categories that went from BRA through to BRZ :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

With the usual suspects - Alan Hawkshaw, Francis Monkman, James Asher, etc, along with some fresh new names, too! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm Rich in Washington:

GeorgyGirl, are you familiar with the library label Southern?
I just dug a Southern disc out last night - one of a very small handful of library records I have.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That's on my list to investigate ;-)
I've become an obsessive collector ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I say "become" like I wasn't always ... lol
Avatar 3:10pm Mr Fab:

Alan Hawkshaw, etc - What, no Soviet library music today? No Albanian? Antarctic? You're slippin', GG!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - It was *almost* Russian ... it didn't quite work tho for the them so it's in my "Next" pile :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The Russian stuff I've collected so far is very atmospheric and lyrical :-)
Avatar 3:14pm Mr Fab:

Nothing like living in a brutal dictatorship to inspire very atmospheric and lyrical music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

As we were talking I realised which one of my Hallowe'en shows I can use the Russian music for :-)
Avatar 3:17pm Mr Fab:

Right on! Looking forward to all the upcoming Halloween shows. ('Course, it's pretty much Halloween all year 'round here at Sheena's.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is true! :-)
Avatar 3:18pm Martinibomb:

Nice and calm to ease my pre-show anxiety
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Soothing vibes ... :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

digging these sounds very much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@GST - I do love 80s library music ... it gives me a lot of scope to make an atmosphere. All those lovely dreamy synths :-)
Avatar 3:25pm Martinibomb:

yeah I love this one sampled it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's very pretty :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hi MB, not to nervous I hope? ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Jan Turkenburg:

And this sounds a bit like Diethelm und Famulari
Avatar 3:34pm Mr Fab:

cuz synths were still analogue! As they should be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Rich in Washington:

Yes, there's something about the 80s library stuff I like too. This show for me has been such a great glimpse into this type of music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Rich in Washington:

Is all this dialog from Liquid Sky? I haven't seen that film since it first came out on video. I should probably see it again, huh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

it is definitely time to re-watch Liquid Sky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's all from Liquid Sky - one of the weirdest films ever made ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Rich in Washington:

On my list!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Rich in Washington:

I just watched Panos Cosmatos' Beyond The Black Rainbow again. It's got a great faux-80s synth score.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This sounds like it's from one of those travel programmes - "Today on The World Is Your Oyster, we visit the Bahamas for a package deal that won't break the bank" ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Rich in Washington:

I keep visiting your shipping forecast show. I really love your voiceovers on that. Please do a travel show someday!
Avatar 3:45pm Mr Fab:

Can't believe you all remember "Liquid Sky." Ha, only at WFMU...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - I love that everyone still thinks that was me ... it genuinely wasn't :-) I'm flattered! But it wasn't me :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Rich in Washington:

Did you watch Whicker's World as a kid, GeorgyGirl? Our local public broadcast channel actually played it on Saturday afternoons. I immediately got the reference on Monty Python (one of the few times).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Rich in Washington:

REALLY? That's something you found? It's still a brilliant show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oh my God - I LOVED Alan Whicker!!! Fabulous show, fabulous chap :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It was an Arena documentary about the Shipping Forecast where they filmed one of the broadcasts :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Rich in Washington:

Ah. It meshes so well with the music. It's strangely calming. I would listen to a 24/7 stream like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

:-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Rich in Washington:

yeah. This 80s synth stuff seems like it's pulled from my older childhood for some reason. Maybe background music from a mall or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My partner just said something similar - that this is resonating with all of us because we grew up with it :-) We were in our teens/twenties etc :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

One more track to go and then it's Martinibomb with Medium Cool :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Rich in Washington:

This is great. I am sure I will be revisiting this show - AS WELL as watch Liquid Sky this weekend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you :-)
It really does make me happy to know that you all enjoy this too :-)
Avatar 3:56pm Martinibomb:

I'm already to go and I got the dishes done (after pulling records)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Good good good :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Rich in Washington:

I really love the context in which you place this music. I don't think I've ever enjoyed listening to library, background music naked, by itself. The way you present it is a revelation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That is high praise indeed! Thank you :-) <3
Avatar 3:58pm Martinibomb:

@rich it makes sense because it was always meant to be more like bed music most of the time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Rich in Washington:

HA! Martinibomb! Recently washed a bunch of records and used our kitchen dish drainer to dry them. My wife came home and thought I was nuts (not that that's unusual).
Avatar 3:59pm Mr Fab:

Thanks again GG. First, running "World Worst Records," now this - you've worked a double-shift today.
Avatar 4:00pm Mr Fab:

What wonders await us today on Medium Cool? Find out now:
www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And we're clear! Thank you all so much for being here :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Jan Turkenburg:

This was wonderfull again, GG!
