Listener comments!

  Thu. 3/8/12 3:16pm kata:

yeah man !
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:20pm jk:

yes Fabio! this opening set is a beaut.
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:21pm Bryant:

I approve the message of the two previous commenters.
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:22pm nic:

awesome second play_the vocal thing_super cool
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:24pm kata:

I thought perhaps the first song you played was OOiOO -- am I wrong ? maybe OOiOO covered De Simone ?
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:25pm Andrew Waterloo:

@kata I was thinking the same
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:27pm nic:

  Thu. 3/8/12 3:30pm bruceleh:

Great article, kind of technical, and audiophiles beware!
24/192 Music Downloads
...and why they make no sense
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:30pm Andrew Waterloo:

La Gatta Cenerentola is "The Cat Cinderella" a three part opera from 1976.
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:33pm bruceleh:

From the article, there was a study by the Boston Audio Society, double blind ABX tests of 544 different people, SACD 24/192 vs. the same downsampled to 16/44.1 - 49% guess rate, no better than chance!
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:37pm Andrew Waterloo:

I'm skeptical of double blind tests in those circumstances. I find poor audio quality doesn't show itself unless the track uses a lot of bass, or I'm very familiar with the track.
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:39pm bruceleh:

@Andrew Waterloo:
Read the article, follow the references, the study is solid as a rock.
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:41pm mark:

Cancelled, if same, is featured on the FMA. Listed as being from Switzerland. http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Cancelled/
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:42pm Richard:

Just made a pledge to WFMU STF! Sorry for being late!
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:42pm fred:

Fabio, have you ever been to one of these concerts at Pierre Henry's home?
If not and you want to do it, don't wait too long, he's not getting younger
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:42pm kata:

Fabio ! you played OOiOO first ! I think !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/8/12 3:46pm fabio:

ooIoo totally lifted De Simone's piece.
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:47pm kata:

ah! I see.. thanks for clearing that up Fabio ! it did sound like an alternate version.
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:48pm nic:

awesome 1st set same w this cut
  Thu. 3/8/12 3:54pm Clay:

I am personal friends with Fabio!
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:09pm neil:

Hey Fabio, last week you played a cut with some really awesome middle eastern guitar, d'you remember who/what that was, I can't find it anywheres.
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:12pm Carmichael:

Hiya Fab, hi successful pledgers and all you others.
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:15pm Robert:

Are you hearing a little "Heroica" in this?
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:19pm Andrew Waterloo:

I *heart* NSB
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:21pm Cecile:

hi, all!
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:22pm Chhh:

What's that in the background Fab? It rocks!
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:23pm Fredericks:

You are one special person, Clayton.
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:29pm Carmichael:

Hi Cecile!
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:30pm Cecile:

hiya, Carm!
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:36pm BSI:

Yep. If you had put a contact mic on my head about 2 hours ago, you would've heard something like this. Awesome.
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:44pm Cecile:

fabio, do you have any Lauren Newton and Bobby McFerrin in their freakout days?
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:45pm Fredericks:

Music Is Fun!
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:45pm Cecile:

Failure: Breakfast of Champions
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:53pm hubba:

Any word from DCE? Hey everybody... getting into the zone
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:55pm BSI:

zee drone zone...
  Thu. 3/8/12 4:59pm Carmichael:

DCE needs to find a new job or a new internet connection.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:00pm G:

Or some hacking skillz :-)
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:02pm Cecile:

or bribe IS.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:02pm hubba:

@Carm - favorite last week was the Auburn Alehouse Hop Craic, although I only scratched the surface
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:04pm Carmichael:

@hubba: mine was the Bear Republic Grand Am. I drank irresponsibly for the entire week.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:04pm G:

DCE now stands for "Dead Computer Entertainment"
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:06pm kata:

this drony shit is awesome for concentrating on pixel-pushing..
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:10pm trsh:

'tay-ah-tr', 'thea-ter'
tomato tomato
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:11pm dinatekno:

Hi Fabio. You are making my crappy day SO much better. Thank you. You do so much for me every week, I just HAD to adopt you!!! I love that pic on Flickr, btw...
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:15pm Carmichael:

Foust or Faust?
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:18pm Fredericks:

Foust. It's a guy, Carm.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:18pm Looms:

@Carm: Foust! aka Scott Foust
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:20pm Chris from DC:

Ah, Expo 70. So much for leaving work promptly today.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:22pm BSI:

my thoughts precisely, CfDC
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:23pm Carmichael:

Thank you, music scholars. Fabio comes through my computer speakers about 25 db lower than the music, so I rarely hear the details.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:27pm WRECKEDUMB:

I am really enjoying this Forsyth track. In fact I think I will go buy the album. Thanx Fabio.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:32pm Bzzzzz:

One of the best songs of all time, Turn Into Earth. Yo!
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:35pm hubba:

1969 was the year of the ferret
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:36pm BSI:

they are ALL the year of the ferret.
.....and they know this.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:37pm stefica:

I long to not remember "The Year of the Cat."
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:38pm G:

BSI has ferreted out the truth.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:38pm Kurt:

Didn't he do some tune about the Russian revolution?
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:39pm Carmichael:

Wow, it says that was one of Stewart's earliest songs. I found it on the comp Psychedelic Scene. It says it was written by Paul Samwell-Smith. Another, different, wow.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:39pm dale:

hello mr. fabio sir. roads to moscow is a great al stewart song. the whole past, presnt future album is pretty durned good.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:41pm Kurt:

Time Passages was much worse than Year of the Cat
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:43pm Cecile:

That is true, Kurt.
I actually owned Year of the Cat for a while. It was one of the first records I bought as a teen.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:44pm dale:

so yardbirds also did turn into earth - who first?
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:46pm Carmichael:

Prolly the Yardbirds. They did it in '66, on Roger the Engineer.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Whoa! Did I's hear some Time Passages bashers??!?
It was my intro to Al Stewart and Alan Parsons production. It does have two radio pop singles since Al had become popular by then, but TP is much better on Al's (traditional) focus of historical folk rock.

Year of the Cat has less historical material, but some great lyrical rock songs.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:47pm hubba:

Fabio has played the more "dark" Yardbirds before
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:48pm dale:

the one thing i never hear is the keith relf version of renaissance on the radiolatron. some of it is pretty fey but some great. his sister shouldn't have been the singer tho - her voice is too thin and reedy, not in a good way
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:49pm Cecile:

I'm not going to change my mind about it, Matt, but I am inclined to check out Stewart's more pure folk stuff.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cecile: "Orange", "Past Present and Future" strike your fancy?
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:51pm Cecile:

I remember hearing Past, Present and Future and liking it. Then punk rock happened.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:52pm Kurt:

All I can remember of Time Passages is that it was on the radio way too much. I still can't get it out of my head and I bet I haven't heard it in 20 years.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:52pm hubba:

Great show Fabio, always educational, always brain melting, thanks!! See everyone some other time.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:53pm Carmichael:

He had a great run, starting with PP&F and ending, probably, with Indian Summer. The radio has a great Reverse Midas effect, turning all it touches to shite. No one is immune.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:55pm Cecile:

it was XTC.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:55pm hubba:

yeah, XTC = Dukes!
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:55pm G:

Pictures at an Exhibition, as apated from Mussorgsky by ELP in the prog era
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:55pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: True, even the 1980 one (24 Carrots) started a decline, radio definitely has your reverse Midas sewage effect.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:56pm Joe Ray:

Clay's performance Sunday evening was OUTSTANDING! The highlight of the show for me
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@Kurt: Shhh! Clay's on and watching the playlist, he's *sung* Time Passages before, he'll do it again! ;)
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:57pm nic:

great show_time slide
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:57pm Cecile:

Joe Ray, it was a great performance.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:57pm dale:

i could listen to clay and fabio banter for an hour. as long as i have a beverage.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Oporto, Portugal! Center of port wine.
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

That's right, Richie Havens' "Freedom"! Clay's performances always rock on the H&M.
I loved Clay's silver hair too, he looks like a futuristic warrior!
  Thu. 3/8/12 5:59pm my brave face:

does hoof and mouth get archived? missed clay's performance
  Thu. 3/8/12 6:00pm G:

See home page for H&M links
  Thu. 3/8/12 6:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@brave face: YESSSSS!

  Thu. 3/8/12 6:01pm my brave face:
