Postwar atmospherica. High bop modernism and Afro-Latin sounds, twilight exotica and soundtrack moods, soul stompers and weepers, hypnotic R&B and blues, mystical '60s pop, lonely country, lonelier rock 'n' roll, instrumental weirdness, electronic creaking. Bringing worlds beyond into the worlds at hand.

Hello Danny and everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm Matt from New Orleans:

Any clue why the WFMU app hates shazam?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm doctorjazz:

Hey Danny and listeners out there!
Avatar 10:01pm Franco Twinkie:

Hey Danny, good segue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Matt from New Orleans:

Not that it’s really needed with the show pages but I still find it odd
Avatar 10:02pm coelacanth∅:

hey Danny and all
Avatar 10:04pm Franco Twinkie:

Wow! Three key changes.
Avatar 10:04pm Little Danny:

Evenin' afternoon mornin' y'all
Avatar 10:05pm Little Danny:

@Franco: Haha, yeah they just kept going for those!
Avatar 10:06pm coelacanth∅:

thinking how i wish (and have often wished) this playlist had some color, i now realise that Evan's playlist was a pleasant blue...not the usual green papyrus.
i think my computer has been an asshole again and changed my settings
Avatar 10:08pm Franco Twinkie:

I want to see a playlist on purple satin with text done in yellow cake decoration letters.
Avatar 10:08pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Matt from New Orleans:

Evan’s page was green for me
Avatar 10:09pm Little Danny:

@coel: computers do that when you're not looking. Evil lies quiet.
Avatar 10:09pm Little Danny:

I've messed around with different colors and background images for the playlist/comments, but I've never had anything work to my liking
Avatar 10:11pm coelacanth∅:

it's usually green for me. there's some kind of setting to either go with the background and font that the website has chosen, or to bypass it and go with a color and font of my choosing, or a default.
i found it once on a different computer but i don't know how to find it again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm doctorjazz:

Vibetastic! Bongolicious!
Avatar 10:12pm coelacanth∅:

(just have to check...? )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Matt from New Orleans:

I think I should change my name to Yo Yo
Avatar 10:13pm Little Danny:

That is a really excellent idea, Matt. Go with it.
Avatar 10:13pm Franco Twinkie:

And I shall change my name to Bo Bo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Matt from New Orleans:

That’s the first and last name mind you.
Avatar 10:13pm coelacanth∅:

yes - as i suspected, the font is still Danny's choice.
but i checked explorers room playlists from the past and sure enough they're all blue now.
Avatar 10:14pm Kris Holmes:

That growling trumpet though
Avatar 10:14pm Little Danny:

Hey Doc: yes, and yes, and more on the way!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm chresti:

I put dish soap and food coloring on my screen during Explorers Room
Avatar 10:15pm coelacanth∅:

then i'm changing my name to dodo
Avatar 10:15pm Little Danny:

@chresti: hahaha
Avatar 10:16pm coelacanth∅:

you're very practical chresti
Avatar 10:16pm Little Danny:

@Kris: Necessary in a good version of "Taboo." Hey bud.
Avatar 10:17pm Franco Twinkie:

Matt, think of it. We could team up and do a talk show - Have A Cup of Co Co With Yo Yo And Bo Bo. Todays guest, Do Do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Matt from New Orleans:

Is your Havana Holiday yellow and translucent
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm Matt from New Orleans:

I could find no trace of that Yo Yo Gonzales beyond that album
Avatar 10:19pm Little Danny:

That's a later pressing, Matt. Mine is the black label/vinyl Tops press.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm Matt from New Orleans:

Why not Po Po? Oh right, no one wants them around.
Avatar 10:19pm coelacanth∅:

Danny my inclination was to imagine the background an off-white...but of course off-whites are generally warm, and the show's called "cool blue". i realised the folly when i thought to myself that this background is "not exactly cold; but cool".
-how about an almost indiscernible pale indigo?
Avatar 10:21pm Franco Twinkie:

My Favorite Cal Tjader cover - Gimme Shelter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Matt from New Orleans:

Have you seen this movie Danny?
Avatar 10:21pm still b/p:

I think this is the kind of room where people can appreciate the mystification I felt when recently I couldn't find any Les Baxter on iTunes.
Avatar 10:21pm Little Danny:

A dark blue/black is probably worth looking into after my show. Sometimes the colored playlists seem very 1998 Netscape to me, tho
Avatar 10:23pm Little Danny:

@Matt: "Key Largo"? Yes
Avatar 10:24pm Little Danny:

Ohhh that is a good one, Franco. Tjader did a cool version of "You Keep Me Hangin' On" in that same time, too
Avatar 10:25pm Little Danny:

@still b/p: whoa, there was no Les Baxter on itunes?
Avatar 10:25pm coelacanth∅:

that sounds extreme!
-i'd probably like it! but i'm surprised you're considering it
(and of course some folks would hate it; folks who are fussy -unlike me...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm Matt from New Orleans:

No CSS on this site?
Avatar 10:28pm still b/p:

Nix on the Bax. Unless my novice search skills suck. Couldn't find desired tracks, and then no returns for him by name at all. Apple Music's got 'im, if you got subscription.
Avatar 10:29pm Kris Holmes:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Matt from New Orleans:

Ignore me
Avatar 10:29pm Little Danny:

I'll forever think of you when I play this 45, Kris
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm chresti:

I think everything as it is, with a flickering blue flame somewhere.
Avatar 10:31pm Kris Holmes:

Avatar 10:32pm coelacanth∅:

i'm going to pour just a drizzle of lighter fluid along the bottom edge of the monitor and light it. hopefully it will be blue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm chresti:

haha coel
Avatar 10:34pm Little Danny:

Tonight! I encourage everyone to paint their computer/mobile screens in a magic marker color that you think best captures the Cool Blue Flame
Avatar 10:35pm Little Danny:

@Kris: You know this Jimmie Raye? Solid cheapie
Avatar 10:35pm still b/p:

Paint Your Web-Wagon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Matt from New Orleans:

www.jimmieraye.com... If anyone wants to travel back in time on their computer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Matt from New Orleans:

The Vi-Tones are adding some extra tones tonight on your turntable
Avatar 10:38pm coelacanth∅:

whoa nice! was that a show on wbgo back in the day?
seems very familiar
Avatar 10:38pm Little Danny:

@matt: haha, I looked at that page, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm chresti:

Love this Invaders.
Avatar 10:52pm Franco Twinkie:

Drag boat music - who knew?
Avatar 10:52pm Little Danny:

@Franco: this Hornets is an anonymous job by Dave Hassinger
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm 23 Wolves:

Show is fantastic as always. Top Notch!!!
Avatar 10:56pm Franco Twinkie:

That is funny, I can just see Dave with his pompadour and golf sweater tearing around in a drag boat.
Avatar 10:56pm Little Danny:

Ahhh, many thanks 23 W's!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm chresti:

Great segue
Avatar 10:58pm Little Danny:

@chresti: thanks for noticing! I humbly agree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm Matt from New Orleans:

This fails to sound galactic to me and you can’t hear noises in the vacuum of space.
Avatar 11:04pm Little Danny:

You forgot to dim the lights in your room is why Matt. Let's not blame the music now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm Matt from New Orleans:

Does the Spinning Wheel cover sound more galactic? Haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m dancing but I don’t think Greg Barr wants to see that. Nor anyone else for that matter.
Avatar 11:09pm Franco Twinkie:

If they played music like that at barre classes instead of that EDM shit I might be tempted to bust some moves with the ladies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Matt from New Orleans:

Are you flexible enough to get your leg up on the bar Franco?
Avatar 11:11pm Franco Twinkie:

Not in this life time, Matt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Matt from New Orleans:

This is a far more accurate band name as they are bringing the heat
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm Matt from New Orleans:

Is the seance taking place at the top of the Matterhorn?
Avatar 11:14pm Little Danny:

Haha. I love you weighing the literalism of names as a factor in enjoyment.
Avatar 11:15pm Franco Twinkie:

More like on The Matterhorn ride at Disneyland.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Matt from New Orleans:

The Heaters just provided me an opportunity to continue but in a more positive manner.
Avatar 11:19pm Little Danny:

That's the spirit young fella!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm Matt from New Orleans:

I put you on pause for a minute so I could satiate my curiosity and get a taste of Spinning Wheel by Sounds Galactic. Far more galactic sounding!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm chresti:

Wonderwall was an album I listened to everyday in the early mid seventies
Avatar 11:26pm Little Danny:

I don't believe that. No way. Too funky!
Avatar 11:26pm Little Danny:

It's definitely an artifact, Chresti. It has some amazing moments.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm chresti:

I have not seen the film.
Avatar 11:31pm coelacanth∅:

that i do know. yes it was
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm chresti:

We are on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm Matt from New Orleans:

Doesn’t it get posted on Twitter daily
Avatar 11:46pm Franco Twinkie:

Drum and bass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm Matt from New Orleans:

Barbara Ann wasn’t cool enough so they went to the next letter. And then struggled for months before settling on Cecilia.
Avatar 11:49pm Little Danny:

OMG Matt you are bored tonight
Avatar 11:49pm still b/p:

Read that first as "We've Sabered Up." Fencing rock!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m being facetious as the original by the Regents in 58 is doo wop. The Beach Boys didn’t record it till 65 and this was released before that.
Avatar 11:51pm Franco Twinkie:

Matt, out here we use to have a brand of bread called Barbara Ann that had a picture of a happy blond girl on the package. I think that's who The Beach Boys were singing about.
Avatar 11:52pm Little Danny:

@still b/p: Fencing costumes mandatory!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm Matt from New Orleans:

Franco it was a cover of The Regents but might have played a part
Avatar 11:56pm Franco Twinkie:

Maybe they had Barbara Ann bread where ever The Regents were from as well.
Avatar 11:58pm still b/p:

BIG sound for Big Hurt! Love the Toni Fisher version, but Rafey was strong and worthy on that first hearing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Matt from New Orleans:

You’re good with me Danny. I heard Margie earlier this week and had wanted to hear another song by her but forgot about it.
Avatar 12:00am Franco Twinkie:

Wow, how time flies. Time to get on the tug boat and go home. Thanks Danny.
Avatar 12:02am coelacanth∅:

i'm getting on the bug tote. with the other bugs.

Thanks Danny
night all
