Hey Matthew and Jon!
Jon Solomon 12:17:55 PM
It is very gross out here in New Jersey, which is also perfect radio weather.
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:21:43 PM
Today's show is, on the balance, on the contemplative side, so hopefully it'll work for gross weather. It's also gross in NC today, too
Rofflestomp 12:34:04 PM
So loving the drive-by pizzicatto Dan.
Brian D 12:36:31 PM
Aha the Cuban tune that is 1st track on Buena Vista Social Club
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:36:42 PM
They are the best kind of drive-bys
Rofflestomp 12:36:47 PM
OMG radio weather! LMAO at that one!
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:37:18 PM
@Brian Yeah! There's a story that goes with this particular cover that you'll hear when I start talking in a minute
Brian D 12:39:38 PM
De Alto Cedro voy para Marcané. Llego a Cueto voy para Mayarí.
Rofflestomp 12:40:57 PM
Playing melody on bongo!?! Lovely!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 12:48:28 PM
Zukofsky’s description is roughly: tender and graceful, calm throughout.
Rofflestomp 12:52:50 PM
You are cool rare air ǝʌɐꓷ! :)
Rofflestomp 12:56:10 PM
Violins are unstopable today Dan! Rather cool.
Dan Ruccia (host) 12:58:28 PM
I once heard the lead singer from Metal Urbain quip "They play with violins; we play with violence." Today, is definitely mostly the former
Brian D 12:59:30 PM
Reminds me of the F-d Up celebration you had on the shows while back
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:00:37 PM
That's true! Both this and the black midi certainly channel different sides of Fd Up
Rofflestomp 1:01:32 PM
My friend had a sweatshirt from when she was on the lacrosse team in college that said, "Woman's lacrosse, Elegant violence"
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:05:23 PM
Brian D 1:09:52 PM
This is fun
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:12:29 PM
It certainly tickles the eardrum like Tito Puento and his conga
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:13:11 PM
It feels like a perfect pairing for the new Cool Greenhouse album
richard lyons 1:13:36 PM
Yes, indeed
Rofflestomp 1:13:50 PM
I love a just go nutz tune!
Brian D 1:16:02 PM
That's who I was thinking of! Cool Greenhouse. That and throw in Dry Cleaning in the mix too
Rofflestomp 1:19:29 PM
When you are God King Dan, can I finally get that flying jet-pack?
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:19:45 PM
I'll take it under consideration
Rofflestomp 1:20:12 PM
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:20:26 PM
But I think jetpacks for all could be a plank on my platform
Rofflestomp 1:21:20 PM
I vote! Hope is ever in the air. :)
Matthew Robinson 1:22:59 PM
the first voice of the two reminds me of midnight in a perfect world from DJ shadow
Matthew Robinson 1:23:26 PM
now it's all changed.. but .. made me think it was some sort of original sample
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:24:20 PM
That wouldn't surprise me if it were!
Matthew Robinson 1:25:21 PM
Matthew Robinson 1:25:38 PM
wow.. pulled this one out of my @$$
Dan Ruccia (host) 1:26:01 PM
Well done! That's a heck of a group of samples, too
Matthew Robinson 1:26:29 PM
so cool Dan, thanks for planting the seed!
Matthew Robinson 1:27:03 PM
haha sheesh.. 8 samples is a lot.. wouldn't put it past him though.. he's a legend!
Brian D 1:30:27 PM
Loving this!
Rofflestomp 1:32:11 PM
Double stop a cello! Oh yea!
Lee Chandler 1:33:48 PM
Additionally, I'd like a Gyrocopter option.
Rofflestomp 1:36:18 PM
@Lee Chandler, that is the number 1 landing technique every helicopter pilot needs!
Rofflestomp 1:41:09 PM
Yoko Ono eat your heart out!

Lee Chandler 1:58:52 PM

Rofflestomp 2:16:33 PM
Gotta jam off for a while, but man, awesome stuff Dan! Thank you so much for putting this together! Just f-in wonderful!
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:17:45 PM
Thanks for stopping by, Roffle!
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:20:32 PM
You aren't ready for the journey that is this Planet Caravan cover
Brian D 2:24:53 PM
Sabbath! As we travel ... into the universe.....
Safe as Mok 2:54:11 PM
phew. Quite a journey
Bud Burroughs 2:56:11 PM
Cool vibe today! I need to listen to more Lingua Ignota.
richard lyons 2:56:46 PM
Stellar show, meester! Thanks!
Brian D 2:57:48 PM
what a ride Dan! Thanks
Dan Ruccia (host) 2:58:54 PM
Thanks for hanging with me through whatever free-floating space this week's show created! And Bud, it's definitely worth spending time with Lingua Ignota
Matthew Robinson 3:00:20 PM
thanks Dan!
