Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm StringOFperils:

no luck on the wooden monument...its mount looks impromptu, so I'm thinking it's impermanent, perhaps non-commisioned post-grad work..looks cobbled together from Norse-derived dragon bits, and an Anthony Gormley-like figure in a different wood. Hard to narrow my search-terms to come up with anything. That part of the world is drowning in public art.

Avatar 🚂 5:02pm TDK60:

I have a question off topic maybe. The other day someone drew a distinction between eclectic radio and free form radio. I thought them the same thing. Can anyone explain the distinction for this clueless cassette guy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm David Dichelle:

Yvang, can't agree more!
  5:04pm Dean:

When you say "eclectic" I think Santa Monica station KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic. It is the apotheosis of pretentious, "Hey, look at me! I'm cool!" programming.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 5:05pm doctorjazz:

Like this track a REEL lot!
  5:05pm Dean:

Or at least it was decades ago, when I started, then quickly stopped tuning in.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 5:05pm fred:

@StringOfperils. I won a drawing contest at age 6 or so with a drawing of such a dragonship. I quit art-making on top right then
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 5:07pm chresti:

Freeform radio has the freedom to play something that is not eclectic, perhaps.
Avatar 🚂 5:07pm Bas NL:

@TDK.. good question..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm StringOFperils:

@tdk60..I think that was a semantic joke argument. the chief difference is that 'eclectic radio' is an overused and exhausted term used in neo-commercial radio, yeah like KCRW. So it means nothing really. Free-form is a term from the late 60s, meaning yuo can do whatever you want to, to make something new and fresh and different. Chatters were just jerking each others' chains, rattling each others' self-isolation cages
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 5:08pm Stanley:

Oi Va Voi! It's been ages since I heard Oi Va Voi
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 5:09pm fred:

@TDK60: Eclectic is diverse, which is good. I think freeform is personal, which can be great or awful, or anywhere in between, for each listener, and that's kind of the point

I've never heard 'eclectic radio' play Tuvan throat singers, or Nyabinghi chanting....ya can't sell stuff in between sets of that
  5:12pm Dean:

KCRW most definitely did play Tuvan throat singing.
Avatar 5:13pm Soul Captain:

Put a note asking for an explanation
Avatar 🚂 5:14pm Bas NL:

Does KCRW do Polka?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm StringOFperils:

I stand corrected. That station does meet the dictionary definition of eclectic....but it isn't free. It's about money, ultimately
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 5:14pm fred:

@βrian: Agreed, but some of the most sadistic shows were the most memorable. Then again, I tuned out of others too fast to remember them
  5:15pm Dean:

Also, I think that with respect to WFMU "free-form" characterizes the way the entire station operates and programs, whereas with KCRW "eclectic" referred to the programming and brand of one show. The rest of the station was local gov't, NPR and NPR-ish stuff, nothing special.

Speaking of upside-down people, gaze into the blue-green abyss. Can you see them? www.hipgnosiscovers.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm coelacanth∅:

i think eclectic means widely varied in taste &/or execution. freeform applies only to execution and doesn't necessarily mean widely varied but does mean not under a prespecified or imposed upon discipline.
  5:18pm Nick:

dave, you know the discussion in germany, the distinction between "Offener Kanal" and "Freies Radio". maybe i don't get it, but that's the first thing in my mind..
Avatar 🚂 5:18pm TDK60:

Thanks for your input, all. I didn't know there is a difference, tend to conflate these. I witnessed free form (or "underground") radio evolve as a teen back in the '60s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm coelacanth∅:

(someone probably said something along those lines already. i just came back inside)
  5:19pm Dean:

You pretty much captured OED's take, coel.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 5:19pm doctorjazz:

There's much overlap, I'm sure, between eclectic and free form. I'd say eclectic can still be programmed; the show is supposed to have a certain content or theme, varied as that may be. Free Form leaves out all to the DJ; they're likely to have some tendencies to certain genres, artists, but they're not told at all what they should be playing. (Some FMU shows are somewhat programmed, like the blues and gospel shows, but even there, the DJ had wide latitude (Matt has a very open sense of what is blues)

Hello up there (on the comments thread), Soul Captain!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm Franco Twinkie:

Hmm, Eclectic vs. free form. Up until a couple of weeks ago, I mostly listened to KCRW for the chatter. Their music programming I could only take in small doses. But now, since every one is flipping out all the time, the dj's seem to be less inclined to play the usual well groomed blah. As per our conversation last nigh, Coel, I took Garcia with me on my run to the store awhile ago. Timeless and poignant without been specific.
  5:29pm Dean:

One of OED's strengths is its depiction in timelines of examples of usage the evolution of the language, for better or worse. Another is detailed etymology for most entries. The lexicon takes on breadth and depth.

In a recent comment on a listserv, βrian, one participant stated, "I've always thought of cataloging as the core of librarianship."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm David Dichelle:

Nick, I'm not sure if it really translates or if the distinctions are even that clear-cut. For me, freeform has more to do with individual freedom and experimenting, while eclectic just means there is no particular genre. But that's just my sense of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm David Dichelle:

Franco, that is good news about their music, I guess?

@Dean: I was involved in the Humanities E-Book initiative and we had our own dedicated cataloger. It was a blast to read his disquistions on this or that, and to be exposed to the philosophical context that informed his decisions.

oh man, Dean i really should get one. that sounds great!
- and i assume it calls slangs slangs, instead of entering them as if they're real words, letting the children argue that they are real words, because they're in the websters. (or the urban dictionary)

David,well, it might be me letting my critical guard down, just for the relief when I can't stand the news for another second, I think.
  5:37pm Dean:

My cataloging professor, Elaine Svenonius, wrote a very good book on the topic long after I graduated, The Conceptual Foundations of Descriptive Cataloging. I had to acquire my own copy.
  5:38pm Dean:

Yes, Brian in UK. The clarinet has a sadder, droopier tone.

I played clarinet one year in elementary school band. I was awful and gave up music for years.

BAS HL. perfect response. kids are right on. Language is symbols that point to actual objects. Never let the language obfuscate or replace the actual thing that it points to; that's like being mesmerized by witchcraft. Just open your eyes and your ears, like a kid. It's rich and it's wonderful to be directly connected to the real world, without the intermediary cage of language.

I never got much past bibliography.
  5:40pm Dean:

I was awful, too, TDK60, but I stuck with it for three years. Also played tenor saxophone. Followed by anything I could use to generate noise.
Avatar 🚂 5:40pm TDK60:

Interesting that Dorsey & Miller were huge with their clarinets in the '30s-'40s, then clarinet seemed to disappear in jazz.

Giuffre, Daniels, Peplowski, Lacy...

Heard that there is a pink moon tonight, not over here.
Avatar 🚂 5:42pm Listening Out There:

For clarinetists, I'm a fan of Anat Cohen.... :)

If you just ignore someone who speaks to you, is that sufficient social distancing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm StringOFperils:

Yeah, I was gonna play Nick Drake's PINK MOON today, after sunset.

No lavender bitters, but we may have a moon still to go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm David Dichelle:

Thanks Brian and TDK60 - good to mention that mental side of things, hope everyone is coping as well as possible.
