Hey Brian, apparently we have another ‘Beast from the East’ heading our way in the next couple of weeks, can’t wait!!

Irene, Gwenifer Raymond was an ear opener this year.

Irene Trudel:

Hey TDK60, I have a had time determining what day it is too. Glad you're here.Brian, agreed about Gwenifer. We'll hear from her later. So much great music this year-- I'm already planning part 2 for next week!

Too kind, Sean! The music I've discovered this year has been a lifesaver and I'm so happy that I can share it here on @GTDRadio stream!

I'm definitely looking forward to the renewing flowers of early spring.

The leaves will start to turn color here in a week or two, and by early Feb, they'll be growing back.

Our liar-in-chief is on TV this evening to tell of further lockdown measures. He is good but not a patch on your liar-in chief. Happy days.

I could still use another snowstorm, in early January.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm
Brian in UK:

Wonder if anyone has ever written music for Egon Schiele and what it would sound like.
Avatar 12:47pm

Little Human just zeroed-in on your playlist image, Irene: "That's cool!"

I could use another year of lockdown, the way this show has gone. (maybe not really. but there's a strong component of feeling in me that just wants to keep staying home and listening to music like this, forever and ever)
Avatar 12:48pm

@Irene: It's weird, since it happens so late down here, and then there are spring sprigs a few weeks later. Further south (like Miami), they leaves don't change at all.

Wonder no more, Brian in the UK - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_for_Egon_Schiele
Avatar 12:53pm

@uptowner: That's a fave Rachel's album of mine, and introduced me to Egon Schiele when I was I was 18. (didn't discover Rachel's until then).
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:53pm
Sean in Bristol UK:

@Brian in UK, possibly a lockdown until Easter, getting through winter has taken a new meaning. Meanwhile the music we are listening to most definitely keeps us in a great and positive vibe
Avatar 12:53pm

Scott Williams' nom de musique.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm
Brian in UK:

uptowner, good lord. Looks like an early Schiele on the cover. Will check it out. We went to Vienna in 2015 to see the museum with many of the paintings from his brief life. He and his wife died from the Pandemic in 1918.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm
Brian in UK:

Thanks for the posting, uptowner.
Avatar 1:00pm

Arriving to Planet Irene, hearing some inter-stellar sounds of beauty. Happy New's, all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm
Irene Trudel:

uptowner, I totally know how you feel. But you can take the show with you on the phone app. Brian, that's a beautiful album by Rachels, BTW. I'll play some of it un an upcoming show. ngh, different Scott Williams, although both are fine guitarists, WFMU's Scott Williams is one of the driving forces on the skeleton crew helping keep things running while we have to stay home.

Irene Trudel:

Good to have you here, Stork! Looking forward to next Sunday's Max Roach tribute.
Avatar 1:05pm
Sylvia (France-NYC):

oh, I have this album by Rachel's! I don't remember it though, I'll have to listen again
Avatar 1:07pm

Me, too, Irene. Really fun putting it together. (how can you go wrong with Roach!, how can you miss with Max?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm
Brian in UK:

Thanks Irene, sad that Schiele passed so young, he was just starting to use colour well; at least to my untrained eye.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm
Webhamster Henry:

You can see a little biopic on Schiele called "Egon Schiele: Death and he Maiden" on Kanopy. Authentic costumes and Viennese accents!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm
Webhamster Henry:

People are complaining that it's watered down and doesn't spend enough time on his actual art, and I concur.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm
Brian in UK:

Webhamster Henry, so difficult to show the life of a painter. There can never be a substitute for seeing paintings in front of you.
Avatar 1:15pm

@Henry: I barely understand lowland German, there's no way I would understand Viennese German (The highland German of Berlin is what I can get by on).

@Irene: that was the joke! ;P

One of my favourite albums in 2020, thank you Irene

Irene Trudel:

Oh, that stinks Sean! I know you have the phone app, which totally comes in handy at moments like this. Hope your power returns quickly.
Avatar 1:27pm

I have shitty hotel wifi, so the app saves my sanity at least five times a day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm

Hi Irene and all. RE: phone app, for anyone on Android there is woof moo app that I really like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm
Webhamster Henry:

@Brian/UK It's hard to compress the art-making experience into standard movie times, for sure! La Belle Noiseuse spends a lot of time in the painting process.
@ngh: Viennese is not as impenetrable as all that - and you DO get subtitles! Schwiezerdeüütsch, OTOH, takes some training.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm
Irene Trudel:

Hey WR! is that woof moo app different from the regular one?

@UKBrian - sure thing - I heard _Music for Egon Schiele_ in a coffeeshop about 10 years ago and put it on my acquisition list, but never got to it. So I appreciate the serendipitous reminder (in the form of your asking)
Avatar 1:31pm

don't get me started on Scweizerdeuutsch (ou suisse francais, then there is Ramamsh)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm

Yes Irene, very different. I learned of it from a comment by station manager Ken last spring. It has excellent features as well as the full content found on WFMU home page.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm
Irene Trudel:

Henry, I totally agree about seeing at in person. Peter and I went to The Whitney to see the Mexican artist mural exhibition. You can't get the real size impact especially with that exhibit without being there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm
Irene Trudel:

Oh, I'll have to check that one out, WR! The other app doesn't have the homepage stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm

@Irene I got to hang out with the Water Lillies at the Orangerie alone for about 20 minutes once. Yet another upside to off-season travel!

Here's that Android app: play.google.com...

I don' know bout the Android side, but the iOS app has been sending me beta versions a lot recently.
