Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

Heya Darren, FMU crew, and everyone.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:03am diciassette:

is this really real? Hello voices!
  3:05am lou in colo:

liquids roolze
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:05am VincentNifigance:

Damn, Daren you really know how to slap a pandemic on the wang.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06am Darren:

hello from my couch!
  3:07am annette:

good morn, all. blessings. cyber hugs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07am Darren:

every time Heavy Larry says its a pain in my ass I laugh its been like that all day
  3:11am Adam West Coaster:

This is quite a ride so far! I love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16am Darren:

hell yeah Adam

Morning annette!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22am mariano:

Kool And The Gang Bangers, hah! Remember a band from the 90s called REO Speed Dealer? I think they got sued by the label...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:33am VincentNifigance:

Successful interpretation.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:34am VincentNifigance:

Best RSM song??
  3:39am annette:

dont know how ya do it from your couch, Darren, but slouch on. YAY.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41am Darren:

Definitely one of Moore's best guitar rippers, Vincent
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44am Darren:

I'll defend this one too
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:45am VincentNifigance:

@annette This is Darren’s kingdom.

@Darren It’s a great album.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:49am VincentNifigance:

@Darren Is it harder or more easier doing this from home? I imagine knowing you can access everything you own being quite overwhelming.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56am Darren:

@vincent Nothing about doing a show at home is easier! Digital signal flow from program to program to DJ and record on my laptop is frustrating to navigate. Plus, the gear I'm using is pretty beat up. Just getting proper levels is a mental triathlon. Nothing about it is intuitive, which is the exact opposite of WFMU's studios. Any half sober juvenile delinquent could DJ there, its dummy proof.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57am Darren:

The vast majority of my collection is digitized and on my laptop anyway, so thats not too overwhelming. What's overwhelming Is that first post marathon show, when theres a month's worth of new releases to sort through!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02am mariano:

"Any half sober juvenile delinquent could DJ there"... as FMU has proven time and again through the generations! ;)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:07am diciassette:

could hear some level fiddling there. fascinating poop! lovely song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09am zivilars:

Nice show – thanks Darren for being on duty even in corona times!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12am Darren:

@diciassette its forever a work in progress or regress

@zivilars, thanks for tuning in! Doing the show this week has been an excellent corona escape
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15am mariano:

Singing sounds a bit like Andy Partridge in places, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23am fred:

Hello Darren and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25am Darren:

@mariano I hear it yeah

hi fred!
  4:48am Hugo (NL):

hi Darren! ♥️ from Holland. love this wavey Italo song
  4:52am Hugo (NL):

that sky girl comp in which this is looks amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54am Darren:

@hugo Sky Girl is a comp I return to again and again, it always leads me down strange and interesting paths. Karen Marks, Joe Tossini, etc.
  4:57am MizzBlitz:

Hi all from Brooklyn NY. Can't sleep. Music soothes...
  5:12am p_Berlin:

good morning from Berlin. thanks for spinning many an entertaining tune on this eve of the Zombie Apocalypse.
  5:24am MizzBlitz:

Kid Creole! an old fave...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:31am diciassette:

this has been a dreamy episode! thanks a bunch (in case I drift off)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41am mariano:

Fuck it, I can sleep all day tomorrow - hello night owls in this part of the world, early birds in Europe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47am fred:

@mariano: not so early here, it's almost noon (we finally caught up with DST overnight)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50am mariano:

Oh yeah that's right, fred. Eep!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52am fred:

Then again, noon does qualify as "early" on a Sunday (though without any shows to go to, I'm rising earlier)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55am fred:

Thanks Darren! You're doing important stuff here
  5:55am hugo:

tnx Darren Stay ok
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56am mariano:

Thanks Darren! Take care everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56am Darren:

Thank you all so much for hanging out, it almost feels normal weird, instead of weird weird. stay great ya'll!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58am zivilars:

Metric, fuck yeah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59am zivilars:

it doesn't get better than this band IMO
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59am zivilars:

thanks for the show, Darren, stay safe!
