JOE! Blasting the radio and starting to cook dinner. I so appreciate the always solid and great company of your program. Add that you are looking especially sharp these days!
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 12:21am Joe McG:

Evenin', Chop Scott! Thanks as always for saying howdy. My new goggles are about 60/40 pro, so I may go with 'em!

Hey, SD, my plaisir. Hi to Machinegun!
  Sun. 7/22/12 12:49am meghan:

I thought we changed the name of your show..... Paris something....
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 12:53am Joe McG:

Paris Star Time! Hey, Meghan!
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 12:53am Joe McG:

Eerily quiet in Comments Land tonight. Everyone must be watching the Big Game.
  Sun. 7/22/12 12:54am meghan:

That's it!!!
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 12:55am Joe McG:

I really like it, I think I might revive it. I have to find out what they actually did on that show. Featured stars from Paris, I guess!
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:01am meghan:

Me too. If only archives went back that far.
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:07am Matt from Springfield:

Chilled Ramones!
Hey Joe!
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 1:10am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt, welcome! How's Virginny?
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:10am Matt from Springfield:

What's Paris Star Time?
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:11am Matt from Springfield:

Virginny is cooled off for once! From some rain! All is going well at the moment!
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 1:12am Joe McG:

Paris Star Time was a regular program on the 1959 WFMU schedule. I'm thinking of changing the name of the show.
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:18am Matt from Springfield:

Surface Noise is so ideal! If Paris Star Time would be revived, it should focus on progressive, advanced recordings from the late 50s era, like Raymond Scott electronica and John Cage pieces.
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 1:21am Joe McG:

Maybe you're right, Matt. There was another show called The Bible. I could call my show that instead.
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:23am Matt from Springfield:

"The Bible: "King" Joe's Version"! :D
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 1:26am Joe McG:

Ha ha! Either that or I could call it "Classical Moderne." That was another one. 1959 was a hot year on the FMU schedule!
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:28am Droll:

I like the show name "The Bible". Every show you could spin the small tablets with the big holes until the sand runs out of the half-hour glass. The segment could be called "Monotheism File".
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:28am Matt from Springfield:

Ah, how wonderful. Not only did that represent great new beginnings and possibilities for this station...but EVERY timeslot was available! Would never be less crowded again!
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:28am Matt from Springfield:

Oh, and BIG PLUS to new Association bed music!
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:35am Matt from Springfield:

Appropriate Searchers!
We are out too...our ears are out in Jersey City!
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 1:38am Joe McG:

Glad you dig the new bed, Matt...trying to vary it a bit these days.
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:40am Matt from Springfield:

A station-wide diversification program? Seems to be popular to shake it up a bit nowadays.
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:43am Matt from Springfield:

From I can count offhand, it seems you had 4 main beds before:
1) the organ based instrumental of the Rascals "Groovin"
2) the jazzy guitar and flute
3) the gentle harp (or autoharp?)
4) the synthy beats and melody with the "slide" effect

All are good, but adding some beds can make this mix even better.
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 1:43am Joe McG:

Well, in my case rigor mortis may be setting in, so I'm trying to stave it off.
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:44am Matt from Springfield:

Then of course, the Kevin Ayers! Always keep that after SF, and to close the program! And, of course...the Yip Yip Martians at the beginning!
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:45am Matt from Springfield:

Philadelphia International!
No Tell Motel, that's on the cheatin' side of town.
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 1:49am Joe McG:

I've got to have some safe blankees. Kevin Ayers is just aural comfort to me, like a fuzzy quilt for my ears.
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:53am Droll:

Joe, Good blankee for your bed-music pun!
  Sun. 7/22/12 1:55am Matt from Springfield:

GO Couto & Mulligan!!

"Mullco", wonder if this was self-released! :)
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 1:58am Joe McG:

Sure was, Matt!
  Sun. 7/22/12 2:02am Matt from Springfield:

And a tribute to Kitty Wells..glad so many DJs here have shown appreciation to her life and legacy.
  Sun. 7/22/12 2:09am Brian in UK:

Mornin' Joe, Matt, Droll.

634-5789, that's my number.
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 2:18am Joe McG:

Hey, Droll! Hey, Brian! Hope you all are doing well this morning.
  Sun. 7/22/12 2:20am Matt from Springfield:

Hey Brian.
634-5789, you must live in Soulsville UK!

Incidentally, the Marvelettes "Beechwood 4-5789" works out to almost the same thing: 234-5789.
  Sun. 7/22/12 2:25am Brian in UK:

Matt Soulsville is unseasonally sunny today. Going to the cricket Test Match shortly.
  Sun. 7/22/12 2:25am RobotBoy:

The Smashing Pumpkins original of Clones was superior if you ask me.
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 2:26am Joe McG:

Ha ha ha!
  Sun. 7/22/12 2:27am Chop Scott:

Alice Cooper is untouchable in my view.
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 2:28am Joe McG:

He drinks beer and plays golf!
  Sun. 7/22/12 2:28am Matt from Springfield:

Hope you have a great time, Brian!
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 2:29am Joe McG:

Hey, Brian, I just watched a movie about cricket called "Wondrous Oblivion." It was a nice story.
  Sun. 7/22/12 2:35am Matt from Springfield:

Some Things Last A Long Time...let's hope those things are good for all of us!
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 2:38am Joe McG:

Some songs last a long time, too.
  Sun. 7/22/12 2:44am Ignore Function:

Great program.
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 2:49am Joe McG:

Hey, IF, thanks!
  Sun. 7/22/12 2:52am Brian in UK:

USA played England in the 1860s at cricket 'till baseball took over.
I'll look out for that film, Joe.
Listening in between making up a picnic. Very English.
  Sun. 7/22/12 2:55am Marmalade Kitty:

morning! purrrfect nursing a hangover
Avatar    Sun. 7/22/12 2:55am Joe McG:

Goodnight, Brian! Goodnight, all! Have a great week!
  Sun. 7/22/12 2:58am Matt from Springfield:

Spiritualized song! Love it!
Goodnight Joe! Have a good day, those of you in Europe! Have a good night with me if you're in the States!

Lovely show, thanks!
  Sun. 7/22/12 2:59am Marmalade Kitty:

goodnight, sleep tight!
