"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

your show description is the far & away best of any DJ. I just needed to say that. Happy New Year.

John, I hate to sound like a pain in the ass but is there any chance you could add albums to your playlist?

it's been great listening to this while I ploughed through the workload, but that magic moment is finally here, and soon I won't be. Happy New Year to the air staffers, all playlist-comment regulars, and everyone else in attendance.

Great show, John - love the diversity from free-jazz noodling and folk improv through to beautiful weird psych-pop of The Puddle and others. I couldn't see where you were going either but I love that in a radio show...

I've always been curios about Gavin Bryars' 12, 1-2-3-4, and now I hear it in all it gory, I mean glory. THANKS! Talk about free music. I love the conspiracy involved in "free" music. There's usually a hidden agenda. Humans.
