"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.)

Options October 12, 2011: Today: An Interview and performance by Nelson Slater
Singer/Songwriter Nelson Slater left one seventies document behind, his "Wild Angel" LP on RCA produced by Lou Reed in 1976. A colleague, friend, and former bandmate of Reed's at Syracuse in the early sixties, he was also a prolific hustler penning songs for the Brill Building during this time. At an age known for retirement he has come out of retirement as the STEAM AGE TIME GIANT!!! He stops by the FMU studios to discuss his recent reentry, we shine a mag light in his eyes, and he improvises a set of songs on the spot.
