Gulls Window Circus

Apr 7, 2020 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Specialty

With Carl Thien

In the same way that a seagull locates the one good piece of food inside of a crumpled up brown bag blown underneath a car after a worker’s lunch break, Carl finds the one good

song hidden at the end of side 2 on a dusty record in a forgotten corner of a record store,

and brings new finds to you every week on Gulls Window Circus, weaving a story that

never repeats itself as it ebbs and flows through time, geography and genre.

first recorded-at-home show for me - hope you enjoy the stuff I've dug up
Carl Thien (host) 5:12:08 PM
during the breaks at points you can hear my real birds (Blue & Yellow) in addition to the usual birds on the backing track!
DJ Simon 5:25:41 PM
I was wondering about those birds in the background – they sounded different than the usual gulls.
Carl Thien (host) 5:26:54 PM
I love it!
Carl Thien (host) 5:50:57 PM
This first hour was vinyl-only recorded in real time
Jeff Kehoe 6:04:07 PM
So cool. Thank you Carl. Have been missing you guys. Though the bot enabled playlist was great
Carl Thien (host) 6:10:45 PM
thanks. Doing a show from home was a wish-list item for years - I never wanted it to be under these circumstances though. But I'm enjoying, and glad you are too
Kris Thompson 6:20:25 PM
Violet Nox sounds great (I can say that since this was recorded after my time with the project).
Sandy 6:23:09 PM
Hey Carl, it's fun to hear the scratchy noise of old vinyl, like on this song (Cloudy Sunday)
Carl Thien (host) 6:25:27 PM
Thanks Sandy, and agreed Kris. The song with scratchy vinyl - the artist is an amazing author - one of my faves. Check out his name as an author
Carl Thien (host) 6:27:59 PM
(Paul Levinson, that is) - start with Silk Code
Sandy 6:29:41 PM
I was sad when Maggie Estep died, only 50 years old.
Carl Thien (host) 6:34:43 PM
I didn't know she died
Sandy 6:39:31 PM
In 2014. Here's her final blog entry. http://www.maggieestep.com/strippers-sluts-umlauts/
Sandy 6:41:42 PM
On a chipper note, I looked up Paul Levinson. I see SF books. I read SF books. Thanks for the tip!
Carl Thien (host) 6:45:52 PM
Sandy - do you know if Maggie sung in Chia Pet - there is no Maggie Estep credit in 'Hey Baby' but it is her song and it sounds like it could be her singing
Carl Thien (host) 6:46:18 PM
read ALL Paul Levinson!
Sandy 6:56:17 PM
I have no idea whether Maggie was ever in Chia Pet. Seems unlikely. Chia Pet is not mentioned in her bio on her blog.
Sandy 6:58:52 PM
Chia Pet: Chicago. Maggie Estep: New York.
Carl Thien (host) 7:01:59 PM
thanks for that info
