Wizard, Ken said this is the show from July 3, 2019 so you can see that list on Duane's page.

I'm in now too. Hello crew.

Hello folks!

Thank God for WFMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Threemoons:

Oooh, just came out of an online meeting...and turned the music back on...BOWIE. The funny thing is that I had the urge to listen to this exact song before going to bed last night. Thank you for the synchronicity!
Avatar 12:29pm TDK60:

Wow, my sister is driving bags of groceries in to me in NYC from New Jersey. I'm so lucky to have such a kind sister. Back in a few...

Hey Duane, fellow passengers.
  12:31pm Marie:

Real grooves sound real good right now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm David (in London):

mariano - Hello mate. How are you getting on today?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm David (in London):

TDK - I would have offered, but my DUKW just wouldn't make it that far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm mariano:

Hi @DIL - hanging in there, thanks. More of the same, like everyone else: hanging out at home, FMU soundtrack, trying to get motivated to do all the things I said I'd get done with all the extra time. How are things in London?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm David (in London):

mariano - The weather here is SO lovely that it's odd to be feeling so great about the blue skies and warm breezes whilst still having to remind oneself of 'what's happening'. I had something of a turning point last night when I broke through the fear barrier and decided to stop sitting there on mhy arse feeling afraid and do something. So I have volunteered as an NHS volunteer today, driving supplies around, making calls to isolated elderly folk etc. Still listening to FMU pretty much 24/7, too.
  12:42pm Asparagus:

Decent, ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm mariano:

@DIL: Yeah, I see that there are now 170,000 NHS volunteers, if I'm remembering the number correctly. Good for you, that's the spirit. Glad to see there will soon be home testing kits available in the UK as well.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm David (in London):

mariano - Can't remember if you were there for Handy's wobble on the Spin Age Blasters board last night, but it was something of a tipping point for me. He'd had a horrible experience and was really shaken, and it made me think 'FFS, I need to do something positive here.' Any road up, enough of that. Time for us all to groove. What's your favourite album?
  12:50pm Marie:

I love this guitar!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Threemoons:

Okay just came out of a meeting and just now realized that I had accidentally put on Bowie after my stream got interrupted. So to everyone who thought I was hallucinating RE Bowie's "Wild is the Wind"...sorry...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Threemoons:

Great set btw
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm David (in London):

@Threemoons - No apologies needed. You gave your hallucination to me and it was great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Threemoons:

Aaand they want to get me a work phone. Fine. But now they want me to take a one hour subway ride in to pick it up. I begged them to consider FedExing it instead. Now, we are considered "essential workers" (healthcare field) and I felt an ass having to say NO to my big boss on the 3rd day of a job but seriously, I do NOT want to expose myself...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Threemoons:

@David in London thank you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm David (in London):

@Threemoons - Tell him I forbid it, and they will just have to FedEx it. I will sign a note if needed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm mariano:

@DIL - Yeah, I was there, glad Handy's ok. Favorite album? Wow, just thinking about it gives me a panic attack, lol. Too many to pick from, so many genres, depends on where my head is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Threemoons:

@David thanks! Very scarey.
Avatar 12:59pm TDK60:

..one of my fave LPs is Dylan Thomas reading A Child's Christmas in Wales, believe it or not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm David (in London):

mariano - Yeah, one is maybe a bit mean. I'll settle for a selection of some all time favourites.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01pm David (in London):

Fuck this is funky. I usually avoid swearing on here, but given everything [a] I think it's justified and [b] I need to let off some steam.
Avatar 1:04pm TDK60:

David, let out the steam or would that more properly be called fog?
  1:05pm Ghetto Pastrami:

I need this in my life today
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm YETI BOB:

@D(iL): It's fine with me if you swear. But if you feel iffy about it, use stars, like so: F**K THIS IS F**KY!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm p20:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm queems:

i miss duane in the comments :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm David (in London):

TDK - My dad told me once about the famous London 'pea-souper' fogs of the late 40s / early 50s. Once he was on the bus home and all the traffic just had to stop as it was a total white-out. He said you literally could not see anything, even the hand in front of your face. Luckily for him, there was a blind man on the bus, and he guided my dad home!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm David (in London):

Thanks p20. That ****ing considerate of you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm Yes:

shooooo, this is good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm p20:

@D(iL): Why would there have been more fog in the 40s? Something to do with climate change?
Avatar 1:11pm TDK60:

That's some story DIL. Blind fellow with a stiff upper lip, eh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm mariano:

Where to begin... White Album, Arthur, Hunky Dory, The Meters, Somethin' Else, Everything Went Black, Plastic Surgery Disasters, Heartwork, so many more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm David (in London):

P20 - Get involved! en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm p20:

Oh --- coal fires, of course. Same reason the city was so grimy
Avatar 1:14pm TDK60:

Mariano: Hunky Dory is a unique album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm David (in London):

TDK - They would have to abandon films, as it would drift into cinemas and cover up the screen.
Avatar 1:15pm still b/p:

And there was the killer fog -- literally -- of '52 in London.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm David (in London):

mariano - Nice selection. And, of course, being hometown lads, nice to see The Meters in there. Man, the Zig is a personal favourite of mine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16pm p20:

I've been to London twice. Once around 1985 and once around 2005. Incredible change. It seemed like the whole city had been power-washed. Didn't seem like the same place.
Avatar 1:17pm TDK60:

Ha! That happened to me once but in an outdoor "drive-in" theater in the mountains of West Virginia. The 3 of us were eating our popcorn and here came the thickest fog. That was it, we went home. Hee! Did they have drive-ins in England?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm p20:

@TDK60: if they do have drive-ins in England they probably call them something else :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20pm David (in London):

p20 - Yeah, well observed there. All the buildings starting getting washed in the 80s. When you look at film or TV from the 70s it's amazing now. Don't know if you know 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' from 1979, but when the main character walks through Piccadilly, you can see that the walls are black.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20pm mariano:

@DIL - I've always been a musical omnivore, like everyone else here, so probably easier to break the choices down by genre. Oh yeah, been revisiting a lot of mid-90s/early 2000s hip hop as well, some great albums there: Illmatic, Black on Both Sides, various Wu Tang albums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm David (in London):

Sadly no drive-ins. I just don't think as a landmass we really had the space for them. Great though. They seems very romantic to me as an idea.
Avatar 1:22pm TDK60:

I am using past tense "did" for drive-ins as I'm guessing they don't exist anymore. Am I wrong? David, I figured that the UK had no drive-ins. It was a truly Ameruhkin invention.
Avatar 1:26pm TDK60:

One thing was, at a drive-in you would most likely take a small metal audio speaker from a stand next to the driver's window and afix it onto the half-opened window. Some folks forgot to remove the speaker when leaving, resulting in calamity.
Avatar 1:26pm still b/p:

Drive-ins still around in US, and some getting permission, in fact, to stay open during the thing.
  1:27pm umorera:

who is doing HEAVEN HELP US???
  1:27pm umorera:

who is the artist?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm David (in London):

@still b/p - That makes me so happy! If I can still charter a boat I'm getting in my car and heading over right now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm David (in London):

Right pals, gotta go and pick up the wife now. See some of you later for Irwin.

still b/p: There are still drive-ins? Well, how about that? // See ya later David in London.
  1:31pm umorera:

oh. I guess the dj hasn't updated it. Darn. I'd love to know who that was.
  1:32pm Layet Johnson:

Get it get it get it, love this track Duane! Also loved your 7” challenge vid!!

  1:39pm umorera:

YES: GOT IT!!!! THANKS!!! Indeed!
Avatar 1:39pm TDK60:

D.T. Been a while. "BIL" means what?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm mariano:

Hey @DT, good to see you. @TDK - I think it's "brother in law".
  1:41pm zach from crown heights:

i know this is from 9 months ago but fire set thank you duane!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar 1:42pm TDK60:

Oh..thanks mariano. Mariano, was that the Kinks' Something Else you mentioned above?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Nymor:

How weird.

I catch about a 3rd of Duanes shows and I don't comment often in general but that L.T.D track got me to look at the playlist ... work out that it's an old show so follow the link to that and see I commented on that very same track before - that one of the youTube comments said "the duane train bought me here".

I'm caught in some sort of time loop.
Avatar 1:49pm litmus0001:

Hi folks. I hope that everyone is managing these historical challenges ok. Be strong, brothers and sisters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm mariano:

@TDK - actually it was Cannonball Adderley's Somethin' Else, but I love the Kinks one as well - hard to find fault with an album that has Waterloo Sunset, Two Sisters, and David Watts. My two Kinks' favorites though are probably Arthur and Village Green.
Avatar 1:52pm TDK60:

Oh, a Cannonball LP, will check it out. /And/ you know the Kinks LP, a great '60s London work for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm mariano:

The Cannonball LP is classic Blue Note. Miles on trumpet, Hank Jones on piano, Sam Jones and Art Blakey rounding it out. Has that classic version of Autumn Leaves. vimeo.com...
  1:58pm Marie:

Love this guy's voice
Avatar 1:59pm TDK60:

Mariano, I actually saw Cannonball once long ago, 1971 in Central Park. I haven't heard that whole album, tho maybe have heard cuts via radio.
Avatar 2:10pm TDK60:

OK, off a while for a nap. See you all later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm mariano:

@TDK - wow, that's great, wish I'd seen him! I saw Nat Adderley, his brother, at Sweet Basil in '92. Ok, have a good nap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Colleen:

"Irwin is not gonna be here" - in a literal sense, that is sorta true? (in a broadcast sense, well..)
