I brought the Sancerre, but all we have are coffee cups.

Hello fellow listeners
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01pm Michael 98145:

yes, hello
Avatar 12:01pm βrian:

So nice to hear you at this civilized hour, Meghan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01pm Meghan:

good afternoon all! Sancerre in a coffee mug brings out the true flavors!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm Julie:

Yeehaw
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm Handy Haversack:

Who am I to resist This Mortal Coil? Afternoon, all.
Avatar 12:03pm Sem:

Hello, and good afternoon, Ms. M. Greets to JfFP, Michael #####, and βrian, who brings today Hemingway's, at one time, favourite wine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm Meghan:

I could even use more coffee at this point. but who am I to complain if it's wine!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm CHUCK ROAST:

OK, Dark Knights. Grab your scuba gear. We're going underwater this week.
Avatar 12:07pm βrian:

Livonia, Michigan. Hmm.
  12:08pm John from Florham park:

@Meghan the only reason why I miss your show is because clay is on from 6 to 9
  12:09pm John from Florham park:

@Julie your shoe was great last night
Avatar 12:09pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

We're doing a test of updated playlist software today on this playlist. If you experience any issues at all, please let us know, either by posting here, or emailing as much detail as you can to kenzo at wfmu.org . Thank you!
Avatar 12:10pm Hubig Pie:

A nice highball glass full of Pauillac, maybe ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11pm Julie:

Awww thank you John
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm Meghan:

I figure Clay has 5 days a week, I can be a break from him one day! An alternate option! And who doesn't like options!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm Michael 98145:

ah, carols

:)
  12:13pm John from Florham park:

@Julie your welcome
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Julie:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Julie:

Yay

@ameghan your asking the impossible:)
  12:14pm John from Florham park:

Sorry Meghan for messing your name up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Meghan:

@John hahahaha. Not impossible, just an option!
Avatar 12:15pm βrian:

6 a.m. CST is too damn early for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Meghan:

Well for me to have a job and do radio, that was my only choice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Meghan:

And you all have the joys of archives!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Handy Haversack:

I am going to need WFMU to use this year's Marathon to raise enough money for some time-dilation technology so I have more hours in the week to do some archive diving!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

oh yes this is just the thing. hello Meghan and folx!
Avatar 12:22pm still b/p:

New playlist software, addled apps for caucus tallies, the TV is telling me something about rescanning to prepare for some tech change in over-the-air broadcasts - which is all I get. It's reset madnesss..future shock!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Passaic River Blues:

@Handy: word. I would welcome such technology. When you take the Drummer stream into account in addition to the main WFMU shows, it becomes daunting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Michael 98145:

all hail, archives indeed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Handy Haversack:

@PRB, if everyone could be just a little less damn talented and interesting, it would really help me out!
  12:27pm John from Florham park:

@Granny howdy
@Handy howdy
  12:28pm John from Florham park:

@Handy if the DJs were lass talented ken would not have them on the radio
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm Handy Haversack:

Hiya, John. Hope you have some color on a gray day!
  12:30pm John from Florham park:

@Handy WFMU have color for dreary days like this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Handy Haversack:

God, this song. So great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Yay, despite coronavirus, the underwater theme park is still open for our frolicking pleasure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm Meghan:

Frolick away!!!
  12:35pm John from Florham park:

Wonder how long it would take someone to listen to all the archives
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm Meghan:

I'm guessing it would be never ending since as you were listening you'd be missing out on shows going on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Parq:

When you take into account that Ichiban and Sheena's Jungle Room have live programming, it becomes almost impossible to be a thorough WFMU listener. At certain hours, you can have four different shows to choose from. Phew.
  12:44pm John from Florham park:

@Meghan that’s what I was afraid someone would say, oh well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Handy Haversack:

Again, though, either magic or magic-adjacent tech will have to be employed. Hopefully a DJ premium this year!
  12:46pm John from Florham park:

@Parq there are a couple of shows I listen too on the alternate streams if there is a DJ who I would rather not listen too
Avatar 12:46pm still b/p:

M.C. Escher would have to draw that listening flow/allocation chart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Julie:

I can't stop staring at the pixies cover
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Handy Haversack:

@Julie, me too. It's powerful stuff. You might have misread the situation, Dead Can Dance!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm Julie:

Wait what is this. I don't have this Lisa
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm Meghan:

hahahaha! It's off a 4ad Compilation
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm Julie:

Oh that's why
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

heavenly 4AD bliss
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Julie:

Many forget pale saints
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Meghan:

It's always about the heavy hitters... Pale Saints were always a favorite for me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm Handy Haversack:

I think the last time I heard anything on this album was on WRAS in Atlanta. I am one of the many who forgot. That's my bad. Sounds great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Meghan:

I had this album that had that song on it- www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm Meghan:

oh man, everyone is heating up their lunch right now.... making me super hungry! I forgot that this happens at this time here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Julie:

Haha yep
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The station should prepare for the future by putting a couple drone landing pads at the windows. You can get your chili dogs and root beer flown right to the studio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

... or drone submarine ports, depending on the nature of the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm Meghan:

hahaha. that would be helpful!
Avatar 1:25pm northguineahills:

My favorite Blonde Redhead album. Kazu took voice lessons before this album after their auto accident....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Handy Haversack:

@kenzo, if you are still here, the slider to scroll up and down the playlist is partly "underneath" the chat window and comments board -- and I can't seem to resize any elements. Not a critical thing, but a difference. Firefox, Windows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Julie:

Always loved this song
Avatar 1:37pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Handy: You mean that the songs scrollbar is partly obscured by the chat, right?
Avatar 1:38pm northguineahills:

Belly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm Handy Haversack:

@kenzo: Yes, exactly. Kind of like how my meaning was partly obscured by my words!

What a set, Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm doctorjazz:

Thursday underwater (it does feel like being underwater today).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Julie:

Bbq tonight!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Handy Haversack:

_Come On Pilgrim_.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Julie:

I never got into them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Handy Haversack:

I would hang out with anything through _Bossanova_, though. After that I get iffy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Julie:

Yikes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Julie:

Grimes?
Avatar 1:47pm northguineahills:

Slowdive cover?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm doctorjazz:

Did they reorganize the showpage (working differently on my phone)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Meghan:

yes, you are correct NGH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Meghan:

doctorjazz- they are doing a test of playlist, so if you see anything wonky or not working, let us know!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm Handy Haversack:

This song can do 1d4 damage right to the heart ...
Avatar 1:58pm βrian:

Remembering when this first came out. We were so mesmerized.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm WR:

Hi all. Connecting to the stream for a few will chomping my microwave lunch.
Avatar 1:59pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Handy: Reload the page. Scrollbar thing any better now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Really enjoying this trip through 4AD land, a nostalgic experience for this Gen X-er! (now i need to say something cynical and apathetic, right?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Julie:

You can't feel that way with this music
  2:02pm spodiodi:

hallo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Meghan:

There really was something so special about this label back then. It never steered me wrong. It brought me to magical places in my mind
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Handy Haversack:

@Kenzo -- sure is! Still no way to manipulate the relative size of any elements (except the actual "Post comment!" free text field), but the scroll bar is unobscured.
Avatar 2:02pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Correct, there is no way to resize the sections.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm Meghan:

hallo spodiodi!
Avatar 2:03pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'd like to add that but it's a Hard Problem
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Handy Haversack:

@Meghan and βrian, now I'm wondering if all we were really doing in HS was following 4AD releases and using them to become cool. Well, slightly less uncool.

@Kenzo: Understood. Looks great. Your work makes a LOT of people very happy!
  2:04pm spodiodi:

new page is still very exciting/looking good, Kenzo. much thanks and praise
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

This Cocteau Twins song is hitting my 4AD bullseye!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Julie:

My fave record
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Meghan:

I was so uncool it was cool! hahaha, art geek brooding in the corner...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm doctorjazz:

Page looks/works nicely, just took me by surprise (creature of habit...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

This album was for the last phase of coming down from an all-night acid trip. Now put on the Cocteau Twins and curl up in my blankets…
  2:06pm spodiodi:

(...and appreciate your ability to take so much feedback from so many users in such a non-formal/unorganized way - @Kenzo [wish i had such patience])
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Julie:

There needs to be a Vaughan book with outtakes. I want more of the Treasure photo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Meghan:

He does have a book- www.creativeboom.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Meghan:

What you need is the actual artwork!

Here's something you might find interesting- musicaficionado.blog...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm WR:

Feeling disoriented here. I know nothing of 4AD and interface change combines to put me into stranger in a strange land head space. Bonus entertainment.

I somehow got a thievery Corporation tee from a girl I dated 13 years ago....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm WR:

Obviously knew some of the artists but didn't know of the label affiliation and associated giest. Microwaved victuals swallowed. Back to grind. Will ponder further during an archive listen. Laters all.

and they just keep coming -- MARRS NEEDS WOMEN

...because men are from Marrs.

So, anyone have any problems with the playlist today, that they didn't already mention? Do share!
