I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm fred:

I got this in my emailbox (abridged):
Dance in times of isolation: make your own version of Rosas danst Rosas with our 2013 Re:Rosas tutorial. All you need is yourself and a chair!
At www.rosasdanstrosas.be... you will find four short films in which Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Samantha van Wissen explain the individual movements in the chair scene, step by step. This allows everyone to get to work on their own free interpretation: in a different setting, with your children, with your roommate or alone, with the original or other music… anything is possible!

It's only because the station has this really excellent tech infrastructure that such a seamless operation is possible.

Not that I want to contemplate FMU going under, but look at it this way, maybe: even if FMU stopped broadcasting completely for a time, we've got what, 21 years worth of 24/7 archives? I mean, that is a staggering amount of music.

So what was the announcement? Late as usual. So even less of a skeleton crew than what is happening now?

Woj - Ken said those able can broadcast from home. The alternate streams already do this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm fred:

It's better to go with a skeleton crew than with the crew's skeletons. Right move Ken

if it's any consolation, was still recording mic breaks at 10 am — practically live!

@mariano, assuming it stays online. Even "just" keeping the archives up is nonzero effort.

Three cheers for the skeletal crew.

@queems: Nope. California is no longer “shelter in place” (meaning you have to stay at home) it is now “stay at home”: twitter.com...

The reason I am adamant about the distinction is people literally believe you cannot walk around the block or go outside as all. As long as you engage in social distancing 100% going outside is fine. You will go stir crazy otherwise. And that is just bad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Handy Haversack:

And that “shelter in place” terminology is a law enforcement term, it has connotations that don’t really apply in these circumstances.
Avatar 12:44pm JakeGould:

@queems: Sorry, but I am going to insist you are misinterpreting things. I know a lot of people — including me — who go outside for long walks to clear our heads. That is absolutely not banned.

you're making a lot of assumptions about what i understand based upon very little. de blasio has been calling it shelter in place, with these same restrictions, the entire time he has asked the state for it. cuomo just called it something else while using the same restrictions.

On the lighter side, I find it hilarious there are celebrities on social media posting about what it is like to “stay at home” all the time. Hahaha! They live in mansions and they all have massive lawns and a whole staff — that goes outside — working for them.

Ellen posts herself crying on Twitter about being stuck at home, while her personal assistants and other staff go outside to provide for her. So sick!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm woj:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm chris:

pretty similar list here in NCal, except add cannabis dispensaries to the essential stores.
Avatar 1:29pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

haven't been sticking to the playlist but it must be said: this show is a large bag of good yay. Superior yay.
Avatar 1:29pm JakeGould:

So do blenders have to be rationed now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm Bryce:

:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm Handy Haversack:

UH OH. When does this go into effect, @JakeGould?

back atcha, Bryce-man.
Avatar 1:31pm JakeGould:

@Handy: Sorry to be blunt, but I posted a few links. I think you can do your own research on this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Handy Haversack:

Ha, no worries, @JG! Can't stop the tide.
Avatar 1:36pm TDK60:

in case anyone wonders: in NYC 91.1 FM is emanating clearly, even in stereo.
  1:36pm P-90:

@Bryce: Thanks for making sure we have a new show today. Much appreciated.
Avatar 1:37pm Mike & Dusty:

@TDK60 yeah, i’m in the East Village getting a solid terrestrial signal
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Bryce:

p-90, so happy it's still possible! (while i howard hughes it up)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm fred:

Blenders are not rationed (yet), but marbles are. What's a blender good for without marbles if Bryce goes off the air?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm Matt Warwick:

@bryce This show has brought me into a new world inside my mind
Avatar 1:44pm Rob Gee:

Listening in Hanoi. Excellant show! Ragas always have a healing effect on me :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Bryce:

that makes so happy :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm fred:

Bryce, please find a way to set up a home studio before I go stealing marbles from kids ignoring the shelter-in-place orders
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Bryce:

today, the home studio was me sitting cross-legged on my bed, recording mic breaks 79 times in a row till no cat made sounds
Avatar 1:50pm JakeGould:

@MattWarwick: Kinda spacious, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm steveo:

watchoo got against cats?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm Bryce:

my apt needs a HEPA cone of silence
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Bryce:

yeah, those 40-odd sympathetic strings make it sound like it's in outer space
  1:52pm John from Florham park:

@Handy on the drummer stream Julie is going to be on from 7 til 10 tonight
  1:53pm P-90:

Next time: consider including the cat-made sounds?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54pm Handy Haversack:

Nice, John. That's great: and happy birthday again!!

Ragas really helping right now, Bryce. A fire truck was parked outside my bldg. for like 15 mins for no obvious cause. Harder to stay calm in a low-level panic when red lights are strobing through the window. Thanks for this show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm steveo:

are alt stream shows live or similarly precorded? i would not mind hearing those folks ota.
Avatar 1:56pm JakeGould:

@Handy: Lots of people are probably having panic attacks and even psychosomatic reactions on top of the real stuff.

Part of the reason for this nation-wide “pause” is because if hospitals are overwhelmed with everyone flipping out then people who genuinely have real issues will find ut harder to get care.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Barney Grubbs:

sympathetic string drone is tamping down my anxiety
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Handy Haversack:

Don't I know it, @JG!

We have some elderly neighbors, too, so always a pulse of worry for them when lights start flashing.

Though in THIS case, the firefighters REALLY seemed to be just standing around and saying inscrutable things into beeping radios. So, you know, that was pretty fun.
Avatar 1:58pm JakeGould:

@steveo: A lot of the alt stream folks broadcast from home anyway. The main WFMU 91.1 broadcast requires real humans in WFMU HQ for the most part.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm steveo:

yes, but couldn't the real humans at the station put the alt folks onto the air channel?
  2:02pm choggie:

had me one of those electric guitar type sitars and got tired of always having to tune the sympathetic strings..even my real sitar was so much tuning, makes you tired
  2:02pm John from Florham park:

@JG the only thing that is keeping me from flipping out is this station and the accu, trying like hell to avoid the news
  2:03pm choggie:

worked out a great arrangement for See For Miles onnit
Avatar 2:03pm TDK60:

steveo: That's an interesting question. I don't know.
  2:03pm Adam West Coaster:

Bryce, thank you for this peaceful energy today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm steveo:

i mean, people play sp0t1fy on the air....

oh man, i need it as much as anyone! so happy to have some social undistance this afternoon!!!
  2:07pm John from Florham park:

@Handy thanks again for the birthday wishes

@JohnFromFlorhamPark: So today is like every other day?

@steveo: I’ve got no opinion on DJs coups.

Avatar 2:12pm TDK60:

Things can only get special with an emergency radio skeleton crew being assembled for duties, as we speak.
Avatar 2:14pm JakeGould:

Yeah, DJs might resort to cannibalism…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm steveo:

i'm sure smk et al are aware of the options and will do what they think is best. (i'm not suggesting a coup (?)) gonna close my eyes now and listen
Avatar 2:19pm TDK60:

DJs might be able to delve into certain topics; ex: maybe Matt W. could do a Sammy Hagar special. (Sorry.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm zopa:

this show is bringing up fond memories of seeing L. Shankar and Zakir Hussain at the Egg a long time ago. Raga Aberi was the highlight for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm zopa:

which is to say... thank you bryce

Hey Bryce
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm Bryce:

whoa, that sounds like a beautiful night!
  2:27pm John from Florham park:

I am sure a lot of the regular djs on this stream will broadcast from home live, if the internet only streams can do do it I am sure the djs on the mother stream can do it too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm zopa:

it really was
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Bryce:

marcel!! what's up. i cancelled on going to your studio this weekend. :'(

*clips nails into ziploc bag*
  2:28pm The Butterman:

Bryce! Good one. Hilarious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Bryce:

i would love to do it live from my zoonotic nightmare bunker! didn't have enough time to get kinks worked out. as i was typing this, in fact, my cable internet just burped. (switched to phone tether.)

but ppl with cat allergies would definitely have to shut fmu off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm fred:

Maybe Bryce's cat(s) can take over his shift? If he does his show from home, they'll have some input anyway

Avatar 2:37pm TDK60:

Another thing is, we commenters possibly could help out with news, panic control, helpful info. or other.

  2:45pm mic_channel:

Thank you Bryce, Ken, Skeleton Crew and everyone. Take care and stay well! An excellent music theme for a tough day. When the Indian vocalists really get going with the hyper-speed microtonals (and nailing them all) it never fails to blow my mind. Skeleton Crew -- I saw Fred Frith & Tom Cora as Skeleton Crew in 1983 and it was terrific, as well as surprisingly jovial and fun. Thank you all!
