Hi Olivia, hope you and everybody else is enjoying your holiday, we have had one today as well, perfect weather and one of my rare live listens to radio ravioli as I norbally download it on the app and play it at work, sounds fabulous as per usual whatever.

Good afternoon, Olivia and agents of ravioli!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Handy Haversack:

What up, Mr. P! I seem to be having a lazy day. Reading a gaming book all day so far. Memorializing only my energy and ambition.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Mr. Pumpy:

Funny...I somehow got wrapped up in a bunch of work. But, spent the night home and haven't gone back to pop's yet, so it is a bit of a vacation! I remember ambition...fondly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm brainiac:

The Secret Harmony knows no holiday, and for that I am grateful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Mr. Pumpy:

Nice, Olivia. Tasty!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm brainiac:

Oh wait, today's not Thanksgiving is it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm olivia:

haha brainiac

In other news, the White Wind (cottonwood two yards over) has begun to blow from the beyond the Wall of Sleep (knotweed on the fence).
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 4:06pm Threemoons:

Goood afternoon Olivia, fellow Raviolis. Slept until now, had a COVID scare for the past few days but as I feel better I think I just had a garden variety virus not the biggie.
  4:08pm thesecoronalives:

I abandoned wnyc for wfmu a gazillion years ago, but -- in a moment of bad wfmu reception in the jersey city basin -- tuned into wnyc briefly this AM and can attest that the 'secret harmony' installment aired a moment ago is super-fresh! : - D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm olivia:

yes! Brian Lehrer from this morning, who was giving out radio diplomas for folks who didn't gave graduations
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm JohnEBGood:

Hi Olivia and FMU family. Transglobal Undergound. Is that an oxymoron?

I am sitting in a room...

Handy, has it reached the Sleeping Village yet?

...different from the one you are in now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Handy Haversack:

Oh, Threemoons, really glad to hear you are feeling better.
  4:41pm queems:

i think i missed a couple plot points
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm dei xhrist:

what the hell is going on?! I LOVE It
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Guido from Cologne:

Great radio play!
I know Kenneth Patchen from his Jazz readings.
No clue that he also worked with John Cage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm brainiac:

I often confuse Christopher Marlowe with Andrew Marvell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm brainiac:

John Donne, however, is unmistakable.
  4:49pm ron-ji:

Me too, @brainiac. High five / 5:00 high.
  4:51pm Carmichael:

Brainiac is getting metaphysical.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm OldGringo:

Shades of Ed Wood- amazing listening... where did I leave my slouch hat?
  4:54pm ron-ji:

This is a wonderful collaboration —it brings out the best in Cage (his sonic openness) and keeps his worst (his utter lack of interest in conventional pleasure/beauty/legibility)in check. Where can it be found beyond this show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm olivia:

ron-ji - it's on youtube (its slightly longer there - not sure the story as to why there might be different versions), as well as on Ubuweb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm olivia:

it was referenced in a book I recently bought called Love, Icebox, which features letters from John Cage to merce cunningham. you can see it here: www.artbook.com...
  4:56pm ron-ji:

When I first tuned in (during Café/Patchen) I thought I was hearing either an episode ofMiracle Nutrition or a Firesign Theater deepcut. High praise if you ask me
  4:57pm ron-ji:

Thanks, Olivia!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm brainiac:

BBQ tips to keep in mind today.
  4:59pm ron-ji:

Cage was my teenage introduction (like a lot of other folks) to two life changing notions: “Music can be much cooler than top 40” and “experimental music can be unlistenable much of the time and that’s ok”
Avatar 5:05pm TDK60:

Hello. I'm late so out of context so I should just listen.
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 5:08pm WoodsOfNH:

Between the radio play and the ice music...Bryce & Fabio are gonna have to work really hard to come up to the level of that segment (yeah, I know it's not a competition)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm Rock Ridge Chess Club:

I often feel that sharpening my chainsaw is the closest I've come to effective meditation. The calm steady rhythm, the satisfying results. And back to work.
  5:11pm JakeGould:

Hey Olivia!
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 5:12pm chresti:

Hi raviolis! Sounds good!
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 5:15pm WoodsOfNH:

@Olivia Thanks for the link to the book. My paypal acct is shuddering, knowing that I've stumbled across something called artbook.com. Yikes.....restraint is needed.....
Avatar 5:16pm slugluv1313:

greetings, Olivia and everyone!
happy to be "here" these sounds/vibes are perfect for this almost-Summer day :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm olivia:

hahaha ya i hear you woodsohnh... I saw it at greenlight books over the winter and bought instinctually... but the bill at the bookstore did hurt a bit
  5:17pm ron-ji:

So glad I tuned in today!
  5:19pm ron-ji:

Mikado Koko sounded like what would happen if Yoko Ono and Aphex Twin had a baby and that baby put out a solo album on Table of the Elements.
Avatar 5:22pm slugluv1313:

@ Threemoons -- i am glad you are feeling better too!!!
and can totally relate, just woke up about an hour ago
(gotta wonder if it is some weird post-COVID thing -- or if it is just because of how everything is out of sync these days, with quarantines and all)
Avatar 5:25pm slugluv1313:

@ ron-ji -- right??
Mikado Koko totally got me!
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 5:29pm WoodsOfNH:

Wow, The Necks kind of leaning into electronica.
  5:32pm JakeGould:

Sounds just like Necks too me.
  5:34pm JakeGould:

@WoodsOfNH and @Olivia: The positive side of pricey art books is that the resale value a few years later when something goes out of print is pretty much always high. Well, most of the time.
  5:40pm AC Paint:

This is a perfect soundtrack for this moment

#COVIDALOCA, @slugluv1313.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm Dave in Vermont:

Oh! you played Speaker Music earlier- the density of this The Necks piece made me think of it and i just searched and found it on the very playlist.wfmu.org... i saw their livestream on ESS yesterday and it blew my mind!
and of course you are the only one who has played them on FMU so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm olivia:

ahh thanks for that link Dave in Vermont. gotta check that twitch out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Dave in Vermont:

my daughter and I are bonding over digging into C. Lavender since she was on your show
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 5:47pm WoodsOfNH:

@JackGould The funny thing is that I've been in bookstores and pick up, say, a large book of Hopper. I look at it and think "Oh, I can't pay that much for a book!"...and then I walk out with 8 other "regular" books for _way_ more money!
  5:49pm Peter from Dover NJ:

Hi Olivia, I didn't get the complete title of the nook you jist mentioned...
any shot you could write it here? Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm olivia:

@Peter, Recollections of My Nonexistence by Rebecca Solnit!
  5:51pm JakeGould:

@WoodsofNH: Better pay good money for what you want than nickeled and dime garbage in compromise.
Avatar 5:51pm TDK60:

I've read many Solnit opinion articles, not books. Don't always agree on everything little thing, but usually, and pretty good.
  5:52pm Johnny James:

Hi Olivia and everyone!!! great set today thanks Olivia have a wonderful afternoon.
  5:52pm Carmichael:

Thanks Olivia and all. Happy Memorial Day!

Enjoy the rest of the holiday everyone, and remember:

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date

The dog next door's barking is jamming along to this nicely. Gary should hire him.

Thanks for the auditory delights today, Olivia. Have a good week.

Betcha Numan had some Kraftwerk LPs lying around the cave when he was younger.
  5:54pm Peter from Dover NJ:

Olivia, thank you. Ive added it to my list

I can call him Bill.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm dale:

this song - you can see the flowering in process. or is it deflowering?
  5:58pm JakeGould:

@TDK60: That track is from 1979 or so. Kraftwerk was a contemporary influence.
Avatar 5:59pm TDK60:

Yep Jake, makes sense, and they'd been around since the early' 70s. / Thanks Olivia.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm Handy Haversack:

Shock to me, too! Thanks, Olivia!

I love this Patchan thing. I saw a production of it at the Grand Street Settlement years ago.
