Listener comments!

  3:44am Brian:

ha. I was just playing the Melvins tonight, and that's how I was introduced to this song.
  3:45am Brian:

"green manalishi"
  3:48am Mark R:

I wish this were a little better recording--it's a little quiet. If you crank it up, be careful to turn it back down when the next song comes on or you might blow your speakers (or your headphones or your eardrums!)
Avatar 3:52am tak:

i think it's really good, let it blast
Avatar 3:54am Mark R:

I have the volume for broadcast up as high as it will go, which is still not that loud, but then I've got the studio speakers cranked.
  3:59am Brian:

The levels sound good. if only people really understood compression!!!
  4:02am Brian:

CHRW is our call sign here
  4:03am Brian:

oh come on. I feel old. I was just about to say this reminds me of Sonic youth. duh.
  4:04am Brian:

love it
Avatar 4:04am Mark R:

Yeah, it's noisy for sure. I think a tad more melodic than Sonic Youth (who I love btw). CHRW, Canada, eh?
  4:04am Brian:

love the Branca that is
  4:05am Brian:

it was a drum fill that made me think Sonic youth actually. just a quick flourish of drums that nailed it for me. who's drumming in this?
  4:07am Brian:

it's not only more melodic but cleaner production.
Avatar 4:10am Mark R:

Glenn Branca's drummer was named Owen Weaver.
  4:10am Brian:

this is perfect for brainwashing my sleeping guest. he often has Metallica CDs in his car and this needs to change. WFMU to the rescue.
  4:12am Brian:

many moons ago, CFNY in Toronto actually meant something (they've sold out to corporate interests since then) but this reminds me of their spirit in the beginning.
  4:13am Brian:

Bob and Steve owe Mr Owen a debt of gratitude
  4:15am Brian:

this app is fantastic, BTW. it's so barebones, it reminds me of when websites were pure HTML and were less than a MB.
Highly functional with minimal drain on resources. top notch.
Avatar 4:16am Mark R:

I used to enjoy the show Brave New Waves on CBC2 back in the 80s, back when I lived in Detroit, which had the worst radio stations in the world back then (probably still do).
Avatar 4:16am Mark R:

You know, I'm not sure who designed our app, we have several highly skilled people around here. I wish I knew so I could give them credit for it.
  4:17am Brian:

oh, you're the only station that will touch this: do you have any Nihilist Spasm Band from London Ontario Canada? fit it in if you can. Sonic youth and REM always made sure to say hello to this band whenever they passed through. SY had them open too.
  4:18am Brian:

I loved brave New Waves.
nearly flunked out of high school cuz I'd stay up all night recording it.
  4:25am Brian Ferguson:

you would've been listen to Brent Banberry. yes?
I found BNW in the Patti Schmidt era. thought my THC addled brain had found a nice interference noise frequency, turned out it was a show highlighting noise music,
  4:28am Brian Ferguson:

WFMU is the closest thing I've found to Brave New Waves. WFMU is essential.
  4:34am Brian Ferguson:

don't listen to me. Play what you're playing.
Avatar 4:40am Mark R:

Is Brave New Waves still on like only on Saturday nights or something? I remember it used to be on 5 nights a week, right? And it came on at the typically Canadian time of like 11:37. That always cracked me up, all your radio and TV shows started at like 10:07, 6:02--I don't know what the hell that was all about, were the folks at the CBC like, "Oh, you know, let's give everybody a little time to settle in, they might be running late." Canadians are always so polite. (I'm sure you can point out several exceptions, Brian.)
  4:54am Brian Ferguson:

it was on from 12:05-4am in my day
  4:55am Brian Ferguson:

I can believe 11:37 though
Avatar 4:57am Mark R:

Some odd time.
  5:17am shmuel:

ahh I remember that clandestine syndicate record I cant believe its already over 1800 years old
Avatar 5:18am Mark R:

OK, smarty pants, I fixed it. I actually laughed, though.
  5:20am shmuel:

well If I could even make one person laugh between 5 and 6 am every morning I feel like im doing my part to make the world a Better place
Avatar 5:21am Mark R:

Indeed. I would like to hear some recordings of whatever music they were playing in 209, though. You know we'd be playing that shit on FMU.
Avatar 5:22am Mark R:

One time Fabio's playlist said, "Artist: Unknown" "Song Title: Unknown" "Album: Unknown". I asked him about it later, and he said he found an unmarked CD on the ground and decided to play it on the air.
  5:22am Brian Ferguson:

Brian says to self: "what's this? How'd they get those drum sounds? Beck? Of course it's Beck."
  5:25am shmuel:

its theoretically possible if you got computer algorithms to read ancient poetic manuscripts and use artificial intelligence to convert the words on the parchment/ papyrus into music
  5:27am Brian Ferguson:

Your ashes secret is safe with Ontario
  5:29am Brian Ferguson:

shout out to shmuel!!
  5:32am shmuel:

your shout outs do no good, because im deaf, thats 1 reason why I like this radio station so much, I just sit on my speakers and vibrate my tuchus
Avatar 5:33am Mark R:

No wonder you're digging the show, I've played a lot of bass-y tunes tonight.
  5:34am shmuel:

sassy and classy (too bad I cant think of another appropriate rhymes)
  5:35am Brian Ferguson:

love these non-western tunings!!!
  5:37am Brian Ferguson:

Land of Kush = non western scales
  5:38am Brian Ferguson:

WFMU should be part of musical education.
Avatar 5:40am Mark R:

It's so disorganized and non-linear, though (except for the specialty shows like Rob Weisberg's world music show, or Becky's country show, etc.) The rest of the shows, the academics would tear their hair out, the way we jump around.
  5:42am shmuel:

so once they are bald as a watermelon they can start to learn
  5:43am Brian Ferguson:

Mark, it's not just the academics. I'm trying to reach the dumbasses who put down good money to see bad Metallica cover bands on their weekends.
is there hope for them?
  5:44am shmuel:

no offense to those with trichotillomania, alopecia, or transmelonotis
  5:44am Brian Ferguson:

they don't listen the same way we do. they're very linear in their approach, for lack of a better word
  5:45am Brian Ferguson:

Wigs are warm in winter.
  5:46am shmuel:

now every time I go to a website im gonna think the WWW means warm winter wigs
Avatar 5:46am Mark R:

I don't think so, Brian. Their brains have been warped from an early age. I grew up on a great, short-lived freeform station in Detroit called WABX. They were only freeform for about 5 years, then their competitors started playing JUST the most popular tracks (Zeppelin, Deep Purple) and ignoring the strange jazz and blues tracks ABX would work in now and then, and of course, they killed ABX in the ratings. I also had an older brother with great taste in music, so I had a good start.
  5:47am Brian Ferguson:

schmuel I think it would be a better world if everyone had a warm winter wig
  5:48am Brian Ferguson:

"Just the most" is the last I saw from your post. not sure if I can expand them
  5:51am Brian Ferguson:

like tweets, it seems there's a limit on what we can post
  5:51am shmuel:

I want a warm winter wig made out of 13 beaver tails
  5:52am shmuel:

then my ears won't get cold, even in outer space
  5:53am Brian Ferguson:

Everyone here is lucky to have been exposed to a variety of music in their early years, I imagine. Let us be thankful for that.
  5:54am shmuel:

everyone here is lucky if they got no expectations
  5:55am Brian Ferguson:

be well
  5:57am john the g:

quite a good show
Avatar 5:57am Mark R:

Sounds like a little hiccup in our playlist software, Brian. Looks fine on my computer, though.
Avatar 5:58am Mark R:

Thanks for hanging out with me tonight, it helps pass the time up here in a lonely studio. Jeffrey Davison is next, with his always wonderful "Shrunken Planet" show. See you soon.
