This is my kind of marimba after being shook by the eerie marimba productions from our friends at CNN.

What's up Jake - all good here, thanks for asking. Howzit with you? Hi Mr. Pumpy, rw, dmz, ParUbi, and anyone else I missed. Is the 24/7 news off for the evening, Mr. P?
  12:49am Jim H:

Feeling all the watery vibrations about this time.

Hello Jim H
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51am WillCrete:

That new Necks piece was stunning! Multi-dimensional percussion sounds.
  12:52am Jim H:

Jim H is merely my nickname, Nick Name. I’m sure you haven’t heard that one before!
  Swag For Life Member 12:55am Nick Name:

Jim H: ha! / Hello WillCrete
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21am WillCrete:

Thanks for the tunes tonight Nick! - this new TD/TD is ripping - they are bringing out a great rhythmic drive in each other-
  Swag For Life Member 1:26am Nick Name:

WillCrete: yeh i agree, I've thought that there collabs have been solid over the time compared to a lot of other improv
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34am WillCrete:

Nick Name: Totally agree, they've developed a really strong language and sound world together. And I dig the way that Tashi is using a looping pedal in the duo, laying down some driving ostinato parts alongside all the crunch and clang; both rooted and free
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45am Scott Williams:

What a treasure Richard Youngs is
  Swag For Life Member 1:47am Nick Name:

WillCrete: Tashi played at Monty Hall a while back, same bill as Richard Bishop, was a great night
  Swag For Life Member 1:48am Nick Name:

Scott Williams: i never have fave songs but this may be close to being at the top
  1:53am rw:

Thanks Nick (and Scott!) for the beautiful radio this evening. Heading off soon... maybe after this R. Youngs winds down. Good night everyone!
  Swag For Life Member 1:53am Nick Name:

maybe fave artist too, i really liked that new 4 track with raul refree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53am Scott Williams:

Nick, I was blessed to do sound not just for that Tashi/Bishop session at Monty (with Scott K), but also Richard's session for Dan Bodha. Both exceedingly memorable nights, but the Richard Youngs session is probably #1 ever, at the very least Top 2 - magical and life-changing
  Swag For Life Member 1:55am Nick Name:

Have a good weekend rw!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56am WillCrete:

Nick Name/ Scott: Nice! I bet that Tashi/ Bishop double bill was a great night. I heard Tashi and Tyler play in Chicago in their group with Dave Rempis back in January of this year. Real nice combination of approaches there with Dave's swinging post-Ornette language on the saxophones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56am mariano:

Take care, rw!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57am Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Nick and peeps. I remember the live set on Dan's show. Wasn't there a story where Mr. Youngs tried out the WFMU organ and used that for the show instead of the instruments he planned? I somehow remember that detail (remembering it correctly or incorrectly, maybe).
  1:59am rw:

Later mariano. Meant to say hello earlier. Been a weird day. I'm a little out of sorts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03am Scott Williams:

Ken, yep! He was touring a bunch of songs performed on acoustic guitar. When he got here, Dan B wisely showed him the Lowrey organ. Richard turned it on, played for a minute - asked for 5 minutes to completely rearrange "Spin Me Endless in the Universe", then came back and said "change of plans!" He performed the entire set on the organ, and I've never been so entranced
  Swag For Life Member 2:04am Nick Name:

Hello Ken , I've put the Airborne Event live session url in the playlist, going to listen to this again - thx Scott / Ken - so much good stuff in the archives
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05am mariano:

Oh please no worries rw, I'm sure I unintentionally skip lots of folks in my greetings because I'm usually doing several things at once. Hope a good night's sleep sorts things out, it can sometimes do wonders.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06am Scott Williams:

thanks for posting that archive link, Nick! Too bad the Free Music Archive is gone, I'm pretty sure the whole session was there. One short track from it is on the FMU live LP from last year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09am Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Greetings, Nick and WFMU folx. Guess i'll take rw's spot…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11am Ken From Hyde Park:

This is the stuff, yeah. Thanks for the back story, Scott.
How's it going, Granny?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21am Ken From Hyde Park:

Did the stream run dry? I'm not connecting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23am Ken From Hyde Park:

OK...seems to be back now. Android app and also the pop-up stream were failing for me a minute ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24am Scott Williams:

Ken, any change? What signal are you listening to? We're on-air at 91.1
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26am Scott Williams:

Hey, can y'all let me know if that happens again? Hoping it was just a blip.. Ken, how long were you out for?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26am Ken From Hyde Park:

The phone was buffering and then showed a "streaming error" I think it said. The pop-up said to try again. Maybe some internet hiccup. All is well again now.
  Swag For Life Member 2:27am Nick Name:

Hello Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28am Scott Williams:

Thanks Ken. Wasn't just you, I got other drop reports, including from Nick Name himself!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28am Ken From Hyde Park:

It was out for two or three minutes. Similar to the way it was acting on Friday afternoons several months ago.
