Whoops! Gonna have to straighten out that tape first... Happy Thursday and Hello Charlie!
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 11:45am kat330:

Hi, Charlie! Will be back after the show's going, but listening all through.

BTW, had a concept involving knots in the middle of the night, so your tangled tape image fits me well. :)

We thought about those two when passing The Waffle House off I-10 last night. Still only 36F degrees here now. Here's hoping you have a fireplace there, Charlie, if the power is sketchy there. Brrr!

Never heard of it until this week and now it's everywhere. So to speak.

I had some crackers w/ a new hot sauce for breakfast.. (i was really lazy this morning). Munching on olives now, about to make migas for lunch.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:12pm kat330:

OK, finally back to the keyboard, enjoying all the sounds, and also really enjoyed the piece just before your show began. If my Squeezebox got it right, the Mary Halvorson Quintet -- nice! :)
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:13pm Charlie:

All the cassette tape you can eat. Here's a spork.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:14pm S.A. from S.F.:

Not seeing nearly as many of those wrecked cassettes on the street as I used to -- wrecked CDs outnumber them by at least 10 - 1.

While in the kitchen making a sandwich, there were big fluffy flakes of snow coming down. Now the sun's out and it has stopped.

Hey hey! It's Bow Wow Wow, an old favorite.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:16pm S.A. from S.F.:

Is there any song about CDs that is as great as C30C60C90, though?
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:17pm ndbob:

sunny and bitter cold here - minus 17 with a minus 47 wind chill when i went out to breakfast - the cd player was half frozen
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:18pm kat330:

Has anyone else ever fixed an unraveled cassette tape? I have! NOT as unraveled as the one you've pictured, but still it was quite the tedious job. Somehow scotch tape was involved, too.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:19pm ndbob:

not me kat - it would end up getting progressively worse
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:21pm Brian in UK:

Who was the woman covered in tape?
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:21pm S.A. from S.F.:

I've done it, kat, but nowadays it would make more sense to just cut it up in pieces and splice randomly.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:21pm kat330:

So, Charlie, is this show's theme to taunt us for no longer having to solve math problems?
Avatar Thu. 1/31/13 12:22pm Katya Oddio:

My TVC15
Avatar Thu. 1/31/13 12:22pm glenn:

brian - is that a wilkie collins book?
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:23pm kat330:

@S.A. from S.F.: Oh, believe me, it was a looonnng time ago I did that. I still have a drawerful of cassettes, but it's been a long time since I've listened. I have tapes of my radio theater shows on a few.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:23pm Charlie:

Yes, @Katya, was thinking of that Bowie song too! Played it not too long ago though.
btw -- anyone -- what does TVC15 mean?
@kat330 -- yes, i've fixed cassette tapes too!
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:24pm ndbob:

@glenn haha
Avatar Thu. 1/31/13 12:24pm northguineahills:

I have multiple times kat, and yes, as bad as the one pictured. Tedious doesn't even cover it. I've been told I was insane and that I should quit, or at least stop yelling.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:24pm kat330:

Hey, Katya! Where you been the past couple weeks? Good to see you again!
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:26pm Carmichael:

I used to work at a radio station producing commercials, and I had to edit tape manually. Razor knife, scotch tape, and roll it into a self-setting tape cart for DJs. This concept is still in use today, in some of the lower dollar markets.
  Thu. 1/31/13 12:27pm jan:

I've been looking forward to your show after reading the morning New York Times: an obituary on the passing of the last Andrews Sisters and a review of the Barry Manilow Concert. All I had to do was read the titles of their songs and the music was stuck in my head. Ready for the ear purge of Busy Dong Nothing.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:27pm kat330:

Sorry about your mighty winds there, Charlie. We had it Tuesday eve and why we missed out on Yo La Tengo and Calexico. :/
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:27pm S.A. from S.F.:

@Charlie -- Wikipedia says: "The track was inspired by an episode in which Iggy Pop, during a drug-fuelled period at Bowie’s LA home, hallucinated and believed the television set was swallowing his girlfriend. Bowie developed a story of a holographic television, TVC 15. In the song, the narrator's girlfriend crawls into the television and afterwards, the narrator desires to crawl in himself to find her." Seems reasonable.
Avatar Thu. 1/31/13 12:27pm Doug S.:

@kat330
That indeed was Mary Halvorson. The track was "The Periphery of Scandal (No. 23)"

Good afternoon, all. Fuji or Maxell?

Doing the Bump on the dance floor offers plenty of butt-to-butt resuscitation, whether needed or not. ;)
Avatar Thu. 1/31/13 12:29pm Doug Schulkind:

@jan
"Busy Dong Nothing" sounds like the porn-movie-name version of Charlie's show.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:31pm kat330:

Thanks, Doug! It was quite nice, and this time I had the presence of mind to look at my SB screen before it was finished.

Hi Jan -- whew, I'm glad, at first I thought you were expecting Barry!
Hi Ike -- is it live or is it Busy Doing Nothing?
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:34pm S.A. from S.F.:

@Doug S. - HA!

But it should be "Give The Drummer Some, Baby".

Avatar Thu. 1/31/13 12:36pm Katya Oddio:

Everyone here has probably re-spooled a cassette with a pencil, right? Only missed last week, kat330. Worked through the show. Always more fun when I can catch the show and you folks!
Avatar Thu. 1/31/13 12:36pm glenn:

no. fineass.
Avatar Thu. 1/31/13 12:37pm Doug S.:

@glenn
Thanks for remembering. Yes, Matt Fiveash and his wonderful show are moving over to the Drummer Stream from our sister stream Rock 'n' Soul Ichican. Matt's show will air on Thursdays, 2-4pm, beginning next week.
Avatar Thu. 1/31/13 12:38pm Michael:

Always a pencil and always an older cassette that had something really, really good on it. Or so we thought.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:38pm kat330:

Ahh yes, pencils--the perfect impromptu cassette winder!
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:42pm kat330:

@Michael: Yes, a pencil was indispensible. I just opened my drawerful (two actually) of cassettes and see I still have a couple of Pfanstiehl from late '60s. Holy moley.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 12:44pm kat330:

@glenn: That piece of ass is what fell from an old beater Cutlass I bought when I first moved out to L.A. ($600 bargain). I've kept it as a good luck memento. Not sure it worked, at least not out in L.A.
  Thu. 1/31/13 12:44pm Tower:

I found a cassette copy of Point of Know Return by Kansas unraveled along the road when I was a kid. Wound it back up and played it many, many times. Still one of my favorite albums, and still have the cassette.

I've also been stuck with bad music (e.g. Andrea Bocelli, a.k.a. Popular Only Because He's Blind & Cute) on trips from NY to VT (or NH) which is why I don't hike there as much as I'd like. Next time, I will drive, and I will keep total control of my car's cassette deck, dammit!

Is anyone else finding that you can't "favorite" a track while it's in play? The star spins around and remains blank, until the next track gets posted. I don't know whether or not it's supposed to do that.

@frenchee: Ding Dog Bell!
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:26pm kat330:

@Parq: That happens to me sometimes, but not always by any means. So I wonder if it is something else, like many trying to click at once (or even only two at the same time).
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:27pm S.A. from S.F.:

@ Parq - this "favorite" thing that some of you have puzzles me -- is that something to do with Facebook widgets?
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@Parq: I have noticed--though only some of the time for me. Maybe the DJ had advanced the playlist during the other ones from their end. It's a small wait in any case.

@SA SF: Take a look at the stars next to tracks (and at the top for the whole episode. And for the show in general!) Click on one :)

Thanks, Matt. Comprende.

Hi Frenchee!

Just to amplify, SF, once you've marked a song as a favorite or a Society member as a friend, it gets add to a list that becomes part of your profile page.

Smiths on helium?
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:39pm S.A. from S.F.:

Well, that raises another question -- where's the star next to member's names?
Avatar Thu. 1/31/13 1:39pm northguineahills:

It's been a long time since I've heard this Schneider TM.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:40pm Matt from Springfield:

I've heard a few covers of "There Is A Light", this is the most washed-out electronica version yet!

(The Dum Dum Girls also do a great version).
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:40pm kat330:

I had thought Nancy Wilson was somehow involved in the old news parody "That Was the Week That Was," but my searching just now only showed an overlap at the 1964 Grammys. Wonder what singer I was thinking of?
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:40pm S.A. from S.F.:

@βrian - funny.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:42pm ndbob:

Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:50pm kat330:

I guess "Ohm" is the piece de resistance. ;)
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:50pm Charlie:

Learned about that one, @Katya from your Oddio electronic music post. Got a link handy?
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:51pm Uncle Michael:

What *did* happen to the stars by the screen names?
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:51pm S.A. from S.F.:

@Uncle Michael - Sadly, no. Nor The Ridiculous Trio, neither, nor Henry Threadgill.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:52pm Carmichael:

Wow, what a great ol' album, Charlie!
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:53pm kat330:

I'm quite enjoying the arrangement and music of this one, but the singer is, um, not doing it for me. [james gang]
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Not a slight on Joe Walsh, I hope? ;)
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:54pm Carmichael:

If you're talking about the electronica collection "Ohm", yes, that is the musical Mecca for that genre. I'm so happy to have found it on the dollar table at a Goodwill.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:54pm Uncle Michael:

Joe Walsh forgives you.

Didn't sound like Joe Walsh to me, but if that's the lead on that Ashes song, then I guess so.

For the second day in a row, I feel moved to document what I'm drinking while listening to the Drummer stream: dry sherry, while working on my resume. Not the best of combinations, of course, but not bad.
Avatar    Thu. 1/31/13 1:58pm kat330:

Thanks, Katya! And thanks, Charlie, for everything before, between and after Tengo la Voz and Yo La Tengo! May your weekend be wonderful and your winds do no damage, everybody! Bah-byeee!
