A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

here is an excellent short talk with titus kaphar, the artist on top of today's accuplaylist. he mentions the teddy roosevelt statue the natural history museum has finally decided to remove from it's front steps.

I urge no deletion whatsoever. (my 2 cents) Why? Because... I think I hear the Chimes of Freedom ringing in the near distance.

Bonjour Trouble. I work near the Museum of Natural History in NYC and for years have wondered why that statue is there. But I've also taken solace in the fact that nearby is a statue of comrade Frederick Douglass.

Nice to hear Bobby Hutcherson this morning, Trouble. He was an amazing vibes player and a a lovely human being. When my father-in-law Orrin Keepnews passed, Bobby and his wife Rosemary came to the viewing at the house. He told story after story about him, some sweet and some really funny to lift our spirits.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51am Pale Son:

Got a 2-month house guest arriving here on the east coast of Canada from the west coast, trying to figure out how she can quarantine safely for the requisite 2 weeks while I continue to live and work here. I had read that air travel is actually now only a medium risk activity because of all the official precautions, but just heard from her that no one in the airports is even wearing masks, including staff!
Avatar 9:52am Jeezuseffinchrist:

@Pale Son, that's terrifying. No masks at all?????
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53am Trouble:

whoa! that's crazy @pale son
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53am Pale Son:

No, and I guess they're really not enforcing any kind of distancing or other safety etiquette between passengers.
Avatar 9:53am TDK60:

Hi Linda. Despite any problems here the last months, I'm relatively fine; in a good mood, today at least.
Avatar 9:56am Listener Gregory:

@Pale Son, we seem determined to make this outbreak as terrible as possible.
Avatar 9:57am Linda Lee:

beautiful. i'm glad to hear it. today is all we have! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57am Pale Son:

Agreed, Gregory. I think everyone's getting really lax all of a sudden in Canada because most places haven't had any new cases in two weeks now. But that's because we've been so cautious till now. Airports especially should still be taking this seriously!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58am YETI BOB:

@PaleSon: I can't imagine going anywhere near an airport or an airplane. Any traveling I do will be road trip, or train (sleeper car).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59am Pale Son:

I'm with you, Yeti. This is unfortunately a medically necessary trip that would take three or four days by car or train.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00am Handy Haversack:

That's terrible, @adampysche! Will send get-well wishes.

@Pale Son: after decades of more and more humiliating treatment when we fly, NOW the airlines are letting people follow their bliss, maskwise?

such a great show so far. and we get 2 more hours too!

I wonder if there will be another Baby Boom, due to everyone being stuck indoors for so long and...er...having nothing better to do. ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02am YETI BOB:

@PaleSon: Sorry, I didn't mean to imply any disapproval or criticism of you or your house guest. Just expressing my opinion - I hated flying even before all of this. But if it were an emergency I'd board that plane! Hope all works out well for you and your guest.

@Pale Son, hell yeah, damn straight.

@Karol people are tired of getting murdered in the street by the people who are supposed to serve and protect them. They're being denied their due process. It's unconstitutional. So it's understandable the DJs feel the need to speak out.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36am Trouble:

@karol marks: the whole idea of WFMU is that we are people, not algorithms. It is not surprising to hear that people have opinions, especially people who volunteer their time to dj and share their love of music. What we are doing at WFMU goes against the corporate idea of making money, therefore the opinions you are hearing reflect those ideals. If that makes you uncomfortable then you have other options. One of those is to ask yourself why these sentiments make you uncomfortable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36am Hughie Considine:

@Karol, there are many archived shows recorded before the pandemic. You can listen to them and not have to endure people talking about the tragedy we are all living through.

Digging this Suzanne Ciani track! She did a really interesting collaboration with Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, part of the excellent "Freakways" series. There's another really cool one in the same series, with Ariel Kalma and Rob A.A. Lowe. Worth checking out if you like this kind of introspective electronica.
Avatar 11:44am TDK60:

There is a sort of unwritten rule to avoid political stuff on WFMU which seems fair. But at certain times of great change, it's hard to avoid. Sometimes I go to WFMU shows for apolitical comfort. Other times the comments board gets "political" and so do I, as earlier in this show. I'm very political, so I usually try to suss out the mood of the show happening. No need for folks to always agree. But it shouldn't be surprising that a station that is dedicated to freedom in music, has disc jockeys and listeners who also lean toward freedom in most other areas too.

I feel this is relevant.

@TDK60: I don't believe there's any such rule, written or not. FMU DJ's talk about whatever they want - the only rules are the FCC regulations, as far as I can tell.

I mean, this is the station that used to air Dave Emory!

@TDK60 maybe that's an unwritten rule for all regular folks, too? perhaps there are too few real political discussions in America. and by real, I mean substantive discussions of issues as opposed to politics as a version of team sports.

Yeti, maybe it would be more clear to say, some DJs often urge no politics, usually. These are unusual times, thankfully..

The FCC goes out the window on the Drummer Stream. Heh. Pretty salty sometimes.

You're right Lucky, there are too few political discussions by us regular people in this country, until recently.

Thanks for a great show, trouble.

i also think that while everyone may not agree with everyone else, that wfmu tends to be a group of free thinking people (or at least we like to think we are) and it is sometimes good to just get your points out and vocalize them, whether you are a DJ or listener. Discussion is always a good thing.

the fcc prohibition for swearing only applies to over the radio airwaves, not the streams@brian. thanks for your support @dougseidel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am YETI BOB:

@TDK60: OK. I don't listen to every show on WFMU, but I haven't encountered any "let's not talk about politics" in any of the programs I listen to regularly.

merci@adrian! glad you are here

Loved what I was here for, Trouble! Thanks so much! And thanks to your Skeleton!

Be well, all!
Avatar 11:55am Listener Gregory:

If I had a WFMU show, I would revise my archives to put in swearing after the show aired.
That is how I would stick it to the man!

Thanks, Trouble. Always a pleasure.

This has been a stellar show! Really sorry to've missed almost an hour of it.

Have to run, Trouble. Thanks!

Good morning everyone, especially Trouble and her menagerie of birds. Birds were quiet in the forest from which I have just returned, but the squirrels were hosting drive-time talk and the coyotes did the late-nite Art Bell shift.

thanks for sitting in today! please support any groups that you can right now, be it the aclu, or black lives matter related, in order to make real change!

Thanks Trouble!

Persian version of the Allah-La’s. Or, I see where Persian pop/rock has influenced Allah-La’s. Cool tune. Great show. Thanks!

Thanks Trouble - Free the form & you'll free the thoughts. Thanks Skeleton crew!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59am YETI BOB:

Another strong show - I'll be studying the playlist, lots of names I haven't heard before. It was a pleasure spending this morning with all of you, Trouble and fellow listeners!
