Evening, everyone.
  Sun. 8/5/12 9:03pm bruceleh:

same to you buddy!
  Sun. 8/5/12 9:08pm cubicle carl:

Evening, David. Hope the storm didn't make your trip to the station miserable. Did you drive or fly tonight?
  Sun. 8/5/12 9:08pm G:

Electron beam transporter?
Avatar    Sun. 8/5/12 9:11pm Dave M.:

@cc: I got here hours ago, and it was all blue skies. It's still pretty clear here in Jersey City, I think, but I don't know about later...
  Sun. 8/5/12 9:20pm Daniel:

Man, this is pretty. I'm playing two streams out of sync, like a Zaireeka-style round. Me & the Missus are enchanted.
  Sun. 8/5/12 9:21pm bruceleh:

I watched the storm roll in from my 5th floor roof in Park Slope.
Some awesome lightning, but I failed to get any shots.
This was another one of those 'derecho' storms, like what we had last Thursday night.
  Sun. 8/5/12 9:27pm Christopher in Chinatown:

I believe the kora is actually west African in origin, not Japanese.

Love this set!
Avatar    Sun. 8/5/12 9:31pm Dave M.:

You're absolutely right--it's African. I don't even have to check the Wikipedia entry. I was probably thinking of koto, which is completely different.
Avatar    Sun. 8/5/12 9:31pm Dave M.:

And thanks, btw.
Avatar    Sun. 8/5/12 9:32pm Dave M.:

Uh-oh. Park Slope is pretty close to where I live. Trouble ahead.
  Sun. 8/5/12 9:32pm Christopher in Chinatown:

As you said on the air, I'm always surprised by how much weirder Lindsey Buckingham gets in his solo work... His 1984 album Go Insane is, well, pretty much that.
Avatar    Sun. 8/5/12 9:34pm Dave M.:

@CIC: True. It took me a while to give his solo stuff a fair listen, but he gets pretty out there at times.
  Sun. 8/5/12 9:39pm Christopher in Chinatown:

to be perfectly honest I'm still working my way through Go Insane. I don't find it as approachable as Law & Order.
  Sun. 8/5/12 9:59pm Close Listener:

Skip Spence! Oar! The seeds of insanity!
  Sun. 8/5/12 10:03pm listener mark:

Hi Dave
Just checked with weather dot com radar. The leading edge has passed. The trailing mass of clouds are passing The Jersey City now. Then it is clear all the way to Pittsburgh.
Avatar    Sun. 8/5/12 10:04pm Dave M.:

Thanks. So I think I'm safe. I'm getting reports from friends in Brooklyn who got soaked, but I think I've lucked out.
  Sun. 8/5/12 10:07pm listener mark:

And thanks for nick drake
  Sun. 8/5/12 10:10pm ScottC:

If you're Skip Spence you really do need a pistol in your belt... don't want to wake up dead.
  Sun. 8/5/12 10:17pm muhregon:

Awesome, Richard Crandell, he is from my home here in the Willamette Valley, Oregon.
  Sun. 8/5/12 10:24pm cubicle carl:

We're actually starting to sound like a bunch of old ladies worrying about the weather. No offense to any old ladies who might be listening.
  Sun. 8/5/12 10:24pm mark:

Yes, yes, great to hear the Circus Maximus. Thanks!!
  Sun. 8/5/12 10:25pm ScottC:

wasn't OAR recorded in Nashville?
Avatar    Sun. 8/5/12 10:30pm Dave M.:

@Mark: You're welcome.
@ScottC: Yes, Nashville, though he'd played with a bunch of SF bands before that (Moby Grape, Quicksilver, Airplane)
  Sun. 8/5/12 10:30pm Daniel:

Going to bed now (mid-Medicine), but I'm gonna be back on the archive. This is a world I wanna live in. Re:weather, remember, you're not made of sugar. Unless, of course, you are. . . .
Avatar    Sun. 8/5/12 10:35pm Dave M.:

i usually don't care about the weather. Never listen to weather reports. It's just that tonight people were talking like the world was going to end. And I've got all these CDs and my laptop with me...
  Sun. 8/5/12 10:38pm ScottC:

Thanks Dave.
  Sun. 8/5/12 10:39pm cubicle carl:

CD's are fairly waterproof. Laptop...
  Sun. 8/5/12 10:41pm PB:

Dave, cheers for playing something from Skip
Spence's Oar, an extremely interesting album that not very many people have ever even heard of. I'll always have a particular reverence for Skip Spence because he was an original member of my favorite 60s band, the Jefferson Airplane.
Avatar    Sun. 8/5/12 10:44pm Dave M.:

@PB: You're welcome. I was also a big Airplane fan, and that's how I know about Spence. I wasn't aware of Oar till many years later, though. It didn't exactly get heavy airplay when it came out.
  Sun. 8/5/12 11:04pm listener mark:

Strue it. So, I'll stick to the weather. Heather has the sports desk and Jessica Savitch with news at the top of the hour.
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 11:09pm fxo:

what a weird show you got goin' on. But, what else is new?
Avatar    Sun. 8/5/12 11:11pm Dave M.:

Ha. What's up, FXO?
Avatar Sun. 8/5/12 11:14pm fxo:

yer blowin' my mind. Now I must go to sleep, so that I can be up at 5:30AM, on the web.
Avatar    Sun. 8/5/12 11:23pm Dave M.:

I'll be listening. See you then, Frank.
  Sun. 8/5/12 11:35pm Steve:

Crepuscular - animals are those that are active primarily during twilight, that is during dawn and dusk.

Though I would save you the need to explain.
  Sun. 8/5/12 11:42pm ADM:

Divided into the Vespertine and Matutinal. (no I did not look that up)
Avatar    Sun. 8/5/12 11:43pm Dave M.:

Thanks, Steve. (I did know that.)
@ADM: I didn't know that.
  Tue. 8/7/12 1:48am Droll:

I am an huge Medicine fan (shoegaze in general) and had no idea Brad was involved with LAFMS. The new Medicine reissues sound much better than my cherished MiniDisc (!!) copies.

Buckingham is a woefully underrated musician, he's largely responsible for the immaculate production and performances on most the instruments on his solo albums. Albums with as much breadth as his have little commercial potential. The moodiness and general absence of boom-chick-boom-chick drums also help keep him off the radio.
