HEY SCOTT -- wonderful
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:05pm S.A. from S.F.:

Another Kevin Ayers fan!
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks for the Kevin tribute, Scott. Crystal Clear.
Love this demo - the one that inspired Joe McG's choice of bed music.
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:06pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Good afternoon forever.
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:07pm Matt from Springfield:

@Nardo: But the point is in the labeling--you wouldn't want horse in lasagna! At least Ikea always stated clearly that they were serving the Swedish delicacy, horsemeatballs.
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

@Rev Turnip: That would make a GREAT album title! And with "This Song Isn't Called Anything" playing, it seems a fitting send off to Kevin Ayers!
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:09pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

YAY! Oscillator squeal! I swoon!
  Mon. 2/25/13 3:11pm common:

so nice

@Matt - NEVER order the Rocky Mountain Oysters, then.

Did what?

Kevin Ayers is in the air every day for a few days now. It's great.

This track is news to me.
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:12pm Matt from Springfield:

@SA: At least I *know* what those are already! ;)

Robert Wyatt collab!
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:13pm Looms:

Didn't know that R. Wyatt & F. Bayle worked together, thx
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:14pm Cheri Pi:

yeah! groovy,
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:15pm Scott Williams:

hey everyone! glad you've still got room for more Kevin Ayers, I got a lot! he was a big 'un for me

Damn, what? Is this an Ollie Halsall guitar part?

Playing my songs. Thanks, SW.
  Mon. 2/25/13 3:18pm paula pc:

thanks for playing an alt version of the first Ayers song I ever heard (Stop This Train (Again Doing It)), which I heard on a cassette years and years ago and just stopped in my tracks
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:19pm S.A. from S.F.:

I suspect you will, Faye, as another polymath.

Low damngod so feel I.

setting glorious fire to the circus of the mind.
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:23pm S.A. from S.F.:

My first exposure to Kevin Ayers was the June 1st, 1974 album, which I bought because it featured live tracks by my latest favorite, Brian Eno. Funny how these things go.
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:25pm YETI BOB:

(scott. you can go ahead and play nothing but kevin ayers until the end of your show)
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Like "Vegetable Man" x "Not To Touch The Earth" x Velvet Underground = THIS!
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:27pm S.A. from S.F.:

I think there should be some Robert Wyatt, as well.
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:31pm S.A. from S.F.:

"Religious Experience" is actually one of my most favorite Kevin Ayers songs ever -- pretty good, since I don't believe in religious experiences!
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:33pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

that tune from the bottom of a well was a perfect brain puppet-show for a [aforementioned] foolish lack of sleep. Probably need that album now...
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:36pm S.A. from S.F.:

I've often thought about having a radio show, and matching Kevin Ayers' "Religious Experience" with Jethro Tull's "Singing All Day".
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:37pm Yair Yona:

What's up Scott
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:37pm Carmichael:

Hiya Scotty and everyone. I shall also chime "Kevin"!
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:39pm Matt from Springfield:

"Ladybug Transistor"!
Anything French pop sounds cool, even though I don't know what they're saying!
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:40pm I X Key!:

Good morning! Happy monday!

Will the WFMU Friendship Society one day keep me logged in/ remember me?
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:42pm Van in DC:

Hate to have to cut out in the middle of all this but I have to cut out in the middle of all this. Thanks Scott!
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:42pm S.A. from S.F.:

@Matt May I? Stare at you, for a while? I'd like your company for a while.
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:44pm YETI BOB:

Banana!
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:45pm S.A. from S.F.:

Sorry, Van. Having to had to cut in, near the end of Irene's set, I know how it feels.
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:45pm Matt from Springfield:

@SA: As long as you don't try to steal my soul/break into my dreams!
@Van: Happy Monday and Happy Ayers to you!
  Mon. 2/25/13 3:46pm Irene:

Scott, loving this Kevin Ayers tribute!
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:47pm S.A. from S.F.:

@Matt - No, but I might break out my trumpet.
  Mon. 2/25/13 3:47pm SkyDrunk HeartbeatBand:

More obscure Kevin Ayers today.
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:49pm S.A. from S.F.:

At this point. there should really be a DJ talk...
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:50pm S.A. from S.F.:

My song. Totally.

Sometimes I get too drunk

I know nothing about Kevin Ayers (or the Soft Machine, for that matter), but its never too late to learn. Thanks for the edumacation, Scott
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:59pm Yair Yona:

When David Crosby will die, it'll be the saddest day on earth. and Neil. and Joni.

Yair - Do you dig "If I Could Only Remember My Name"?
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 4:18pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

jeezus I forgot Bongwater did this. Timewarp.
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 4:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Yeah! H&M respeck to Kevin!

Oh my goodness.
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 4:23pm YETI BOB:

Matt: You call that "respect"?
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 4:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@Yair,tim: I have that Crosby solo one on vinyl--you open up the jacket and it has photos of all the musicians of the album, most of them legendary. I bought that from a record store in college, and the guy who sold it showed me the pictures and commented how much drugs must've been consumed during the making of the album!
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 4:25pm steve:

hi Scott and listeners! this is quite the tribute
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 4:26pm Matt from Springfield:

@SA: This is the Hoof AND Mouth! Imitation is always the sincerest form of flattery! Don't judge on its merits, judge on the fact it was included in the lineup ;)

Hi steve!
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 4:27pm Yair Yona:

@Tim, Matt - If I Could Only is one of my all time fav albums, of course.
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 4:29pm DCE:

is Traffic involved with this? I could swear I heard Stevie Winwood.
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 4:29pm BDR:

Holyfuck, that Bryce doing Zeppelin? I need reevaluate everything.
  Mon. 2/25/13 4:30pm John L.:

I first heard Kevin Ayers on a Connecticut station while I was growing up on Long Island. I was 12 or 13 and hearing his music was pivotal in shaping my taste. This is a great tribute. Thanks.
  Mon. 2/25/13 4:31pm seang:

sleep is my drug of choice
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 4:36pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: Could be him, you never knew you might've been hangin at the BBC on that day and was asked to join in.
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 4:36pm DCE:

speaking of sleep, I just read a "review" of a Pink Floyd tribute act. One of the musicians says "we will play all the hits to keep people from dozing off." Is that the proper attitude?
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 4:38pm jeff-m:

really enjoying the tribute man!
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 4:40pm tim from champaign:

Last night I listened to The Final Cut for the first time since I was a teenager. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it. Not much of Pink Floyd Fan after Ummagumma.

Hello WFMU regulars & irregulars, sorry I'm late to the party & missed Bongwater!
  Mon. 2/25/13 4:47pm Yair Yona (tel aviv,earth):

Tim, it's a brilliant album but has nothing to do with Floyd, aside for the brand
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 4:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Frances!

Hey Matt! Hope all is swell up in NoVA land
