@paddy: Jim Price has been on WFMU since the late 1970s. He used to have a recurring guest slot that he offered Fred Frith to come and program music. Jim's had Peter Blegvad as a guest as well. Jim's also a fantastic musician and writer.

@olivia - Oh ha, that's the finale, yes it's a real special treat. I'm drawing stills from it whilst listening to this show - a nice way to pass the evening :)
Avatar 3:31pm slugluv1313:

YES!!! there was a gloriously Full Moon last night, and a Lunar Eclipse -- i was still awake, but could not see this happening, perhaps because of all the clouds??

Hello there Olivia & folks! Just calling in to say hi.
Relaxing from a never-ending Monday with a tune to clear my mind.
Oh, I love this traditional Japanese song and the shamisen (I believe).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Deborah:

Good listening afternoon WFMUniverse!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Handy Haversack:

Hey there, Heidee.
Avatar 3:55pm Heidee:

Oh hi Deborah! I have to tell you: I've finished watching both seasons of The Queen's Gambit in one go! Absolutely brilliant, couldn't get my nose of the screen.
Am now two episodes into Schitt's Creek - hilarious. Please feed me with more TV tips!
Hi Handy! How's gaun?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm WillCrete:

Thanks for the music this afternoon Olivia.
@Heidee - agreed! This Kanako Horiuchi is beautiful! The combination of sanshin and kora here is magnificent. Bouncing interwoven strings, true soaring voice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm YETI BOB:

Hi Heidee and all. The page Olivia linked says it's a sanshin which is almost the same as a shamisen - it's the Okinawan version and is older.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm melinda:

I think petrichor is the word for the smell of rain on dry dirt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm YETI BOB:

The Shamisen is bigger. I did not know this, just learning now :)
Avatar 3:57pm Heidee:

Hi Will, are you from Crete?
Hi Yeti, thanks for specifying, appreciated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Handy Haversack:

Oh, hanging in, Heidee. Just finished work and am doing some freelance work before a volunteer meeting. It's drawing quite rapidly down on the cocktail hour here!

Schitt's Creek was very good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm YETI BOB:

I'm really enjoying the show today, Olivia. The last couple tracks were just beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm melinda:

Jersey City might not be the best place for petrichor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm YETI BOB:

One component of petrichor is geosmin, which is another great word. Humans can detect it at super-low concentrations, 5 parts per trillion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Handy Haversack:

YB, didn't you say that whatever it is that makes petrichor is something the human nose is super sensitive to? Like in the PPT range?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Handy Haversack:

Ahem. I see that you did!
Avatar 4:03pm wolfette:

Petrichor is also a character in the "Saga" comics series!
Avatar 4:03pm Heidee:

Handy, sounds good and focused. :-)
The acting skills in Schitt's Creek, pure dead brilliant. Fine line between over-the-top, toe-curling and uncannily satirical.
More clever TV tips please, I am parched.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm YETI BOB:

"geosmin" = "earth smell"
"petrichor" = "blood of rocks"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm WillCrete:

@Heidee- Yes- but not the famous island - I'm listening in Crete, Illinois, a small town 35 miles south of Chicago. We moved down here back in 2014.

Avatar 4:05pm Heidee:

WillCrete, oh I see. I mightn't be the first nor last to ask... :-) I was just going on to say how beautiful the isle of Crete is... :-)

@TDK60 -- right?
working on a buncha different things, but also doing some chores -- and, last night set up red beans from El Salvodor to soak overnight, and cooking them now, along with brown Basmati rice -- the music and vibes are sooooo perfect for this gloomy rainy afternoon! :)

I think the writers of Righteous Gemstones must have spent time in Jerry Falwell Jr's inner circle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Ike:

I really want to rewatch Parks & Recreation but they moved it from Netflix to some dumb new streaming service in the U.S. so pffffft. Heidee, check it out if you haven't. Skip season 1, the show hadn't gelled yet, much like The Office (U.S.) and they basically re-jiggered the whole thing in season 2.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm YETI BOB:

@Ike: I think it's common to pronounce the US version weirdly to emphasize that it's not the same as the old-world city. For example Lima Ohio is "Lye-ma" and Cairo IL is "Kay-ro". (I'm not sure if they say Pea-Ru but I think they do)

@Heidee: Yes, I've heard it - pretty interesting. They call it "Pennsylvania Dutch" but of course it's not Dutch at all, it's Deutsch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm WillCrete:

@Heidee and YetiBob: And to that list of Illinois place names of global resonance, you might add the town of Pekin, selected allegedly because the founders thought that they were positioned on the exact opposite side of the earth from Peking, China. Canton, Ohio has a similar origin I understand.

Hey everyone, hi Olivia
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm WillCrete:

@Hiedee- as for the motivations for naming towns, I suspect that there is variously a mix of nostalgia and homage / aspiration at work in many. But for Crete, IL, the name seems to have been selected totally at random. The story goes that the fellow who incorporated the town just opened the Bible to a random page and selected the first place name he found there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm YETI BOB:

Now I'm looking at "The origins of unusual place-names." by Armond and Winifred Moyer. Berlin isn't even listed there, because, after all, it's not that unusual of a name.
Avatar 4:45pm slugluv1313:

No way!?! That's crazy the Mumia was from the late 80s. It sounds so current.

@Yeti Bob, as they used to say up the Thruway, "when in Rome, go to Utica." In all fairness, it was just me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Handy Haversack:

If it turns out that all pancakes are named George, that book is really burying the lede, YB.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Yeti Bob did I ever tell you that we sometimes speculate that my oldest son is a yeti, because he's big and hairy and every picture of him is blurry?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm YETI BOB:

@PB: Oh, Intercourse PA is in here, but it's not as funny to me as Pancake PA and Bummer KY.

Oh, zombie fungus album cover.

I'm putting on my cans so I don't miss any of this show whilst I walk to my car. I really dug the PVA.

Oh Ike @4:17, I just saw your post on the shows, thank you! And I love the Office, esp. the British one...
Hi Buddha!
Need to hit the sack now, pity. Very nice and educational show, both in music and comments. Thanks & CU
P.S. It started to snow outside my window! My dog is excited! Bye, sweeties.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Niall:

@Tim from... Ophiocordyceps unilateralis is this wild fungus that commandeers living ants' bodies; after it permeates the host with these micro-filaments, it makes the ant climb a tree and hang from a branch above the ant's colony. Then its fruit-bearing body bursts from the head of the ant and showers spores on the ants below.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Niall:

You know, like bands, WFMU DJs, and listeners. ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm tim from champaign (now washington):

@Niall - wow, thanks! That's the real reason Elon Muak is sending out space ships. He's going to perform a multi-continent synchronized launch with space ships loaded with the fungus. The space ships will explode in the atmosphere and in all living creatures will turn into zombies to do Musk's bidding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Niall:

I'll let you know if I see a rash of tree-climbers, @Tim from...

Hi slugluv, bye slugluv :-)
And John!
I feel stupid after my grandiose parting words and now I am still here.
I have been watching the snow. It is only a wet mess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm tim from champaign (now washington):

Huh, wha? Sorry, I fell asleep for a minture.

Huh. I haven't heard this podcast in some years.

I drink cordyceps elixir tea for energy, is that the same fungus you were talking about?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Michael 98145:

- thank you for all the bandcamp links
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Handy Haversack:

Very true, John. I had to duck out for half an hour to plan out some stuff on the phone. Back for the last half hour, though. Kate's laying down vocal tracks in the other room, so it's a rich soundscape indeed around these parts.
  5:45pm Krys O:

Thanks, Olivia for the soundscape.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm diciassette:

We love Banny Grove! Thank you Olivia
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Niall:

@Heidee - there are a lot of other cordyceps out there, but I'd hazard to guess no - only because there are surely easier mushrooms to cultivate that don't require such special conditions!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm tim from champaign (now washington):

I love the cassettes you've been playing, Olivia.
