"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.)

Bonjour John !
Avatar Wed. 2/8/12 6:14am JA:

hey there pierre
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:14am Dan from Toronto:

Hm, totally hearing JM in the AM out here in streamingland...
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:15am George of Troy:

I was just going to say that...
Avatar Wed. 2/8/12 6:16am JA:

jeezes f-in .....allright folks bear with me
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:16am Andrew:

There's a Mike Kelley on wikipedia who just died, but it doesn't mention music - only visual art. Is this the same guy?
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:20am JA:

George, are you still hearing JM?
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:20am George of Troy:

yep.
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:20am Dan from Toronto:

Still hearing JM. Someone is totally butchering the otherwise wonderful song "Hare'ut".
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:21am JA:

now?
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:21am Andrew:

there you go!
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:21am Dan from Toronto:

JA: that's fixed it, thanks!
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:22am Veronica:

Mike Kelley (the one who just died) was in the bands Destroy All Monsters and the Poetics. and did music as well as art. This traditional Jewish music is definitely NOT Destroy All Monsters. I'm sure MK is laughing.
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:22am George of Troy:

Ahhh.... much better.
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:23am Andrew:

So, is it acceptable to listen to jm in the am for upwards of 5 minutes without realising its not john allen?
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:24am Dan from Toronto:

Andrew: only if you do so ironically. Then it's ok.
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:24am hamburger:

I think I'm hearing FXO's show? Everyday People is playing
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:25am Andrew:

I switched to irony as soon as George alerted me :)
Avatar Wed. 2/8/12 6:26am JA:

are you joking hamburger?
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:27am Andrew:

I heard everyday people also.
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:28am hamburger:

no, it's now Here Tonight by Gene Clark - on the 128k stream, pretty sure it's FXO's last Monday show now
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:29am Veronica:

Mike Kelley's spirit has overtaken the WFMU airwaves.
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:30am Dan from Toronto:

We're caught in a time loop! *Looks frantically around for Data and Warf"
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:30am Andrew:

yep - frank just started talking...
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:31am George of Troy:

Whoa, what is happening?
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:32am Andrew:

help! should I still be listening ironically?
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:32am Veronica:

:-)
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:32am George of Troy:

Got it now, John.
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:32am Andrew:

that sounds more droney
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:33am Dan from Toronto:

Now we all wait for the radio station to explode, then somehow we end up back at 6am again.
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:33am Marmalade Kitty:

This happened a few weeks ago on Meghans show
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:34am Dan from Toronto:

Andrew: the trick is to *always* listen ironically, then you're always safe.
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:35am Andrew:

I clearly need to go back to hipster school.
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:38am Veronica:

This sounds like a horror movie soundtrack version of Destroy All Monsters. I hope MK isn't in hell.
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:41am Veronica:

MK=Mike Kelly, not Marmalade Kitty
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:42am Veronica:

Although I hope Ms. Kitty that you aren't in hell either
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:46am Marmalade Kitty:

:)
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:51am maestroso:

Just joining... all seems well with the stream..
Good Morning John and listeners!
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:52am Veronica:

Oh wow, it IS a Mike Kelley movie soundtrack. http://www.discogs.com/Mike-Kelley-Day-Is-Done-Original-Motion-Picture-Soundtrack/release/1399903
  Wed. 2/8/12 6:59am Veronica:

JA, Are you playing tracks from that Destroy All Monsters 1974-76 set? I haven't heard it and didn't think there was stuff like this on it.
Avatar Wed. 2/8/12 7:00am JA:

yeah, pulling the MK solo stuff off the box
  Wed. 2/8/12 7:02am Veronica:

Cool, thanks.
  Wed. 2/8/12 7:17am Veronica:

I live in Los Angeles and along with so many people here have been really saddened by his death. This is a wonderful tribute.
  Wed. 2/8/12 7:33am Marmalade Kitty:

love the poetry
  Wed. 2/8/12 7:59am Marmalade Kitty:

JA, where can I find "plato's cave, rothko's chapel, lincoln's profile" ?
Avatar Wed. 2/8/12 8:00am JA:

that was off the Tellus cassette #18, but I think all of those tapes have been digitized and are available at ubuweb
  Wed. 2/8/12 8:11am Marmalade Kitty:

that's great, thanks!
  Wed. 2/8/12 8:23am Cheri Pi:

Geeze! I'm gonna have to make this up to myself in the archives later. Stellar work JA!
  Wed. 2/8/12 8:35am Marmalade Kitty:

beautiful tribute! Thanks JA
  Wed. 2/8/12 8:37am Veronica:

Can't thank you enough JA.
Avatar Wed. 2/8/12 8:39am JA:

hey gang. glad you enjoyed, please pass this one around.
  Wed. 2/8/12 8:54am Marmalade Kitty:

  Thu. 2/9/12 9:12am Ratfink:
