Live Performance by Don Bikoff

After releasing a solo album, "Celestial Explosion", on the little known Keyboard Records in 1968, Don Bikoff played on the Ted Mack Amateur Hour. After Bikoff's performance on the TV show the host remarked, "That's unusual to say the least." Now his long-out-of-print album has been reissued on Tompkins Square Records. Don Bikoff, still playing strong at 65, drops by WFMU to play live on Irene's show.

Let's talk about a world without Roger Ebert. Or not, because that's pretty sad.

  Mon. 4/8/13 12:17pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Absolutely "listening out there", that's all I have to say on the subject.

@Cecile, yes, that was sad news about Roger,

Avatar Mon. 4/8/13 12:41pm Detroit Mac:

There was a great free concert last night in Princeton NJ of an Abruzzo-Italian group named DisCanto. Some of the best bagpipe playing I've heard (and I normally don't like bagpipes).

Don, someone has to give you some soundtrack work...
  Mon. 4/8/13 1:23pm California man:

Man this steel guitar has soul.
  Mon. 4/8/13 1:23pm Listening Out There:

instrument has a great sound. is the echo part of it...or is that the engineering?
Avatar Mon. 4/8/13 1:24pm Cecile:

Gary Lucas did some great work for ABC-news on steel guitar.
  Mon. 4/8/13 1:24pm Listening Out There:

I was thinking of Paris, Texas too. some of my favorite Ry Cooder...

Yes! I have that!!!

I'm excited for Don's new music.
  Mon. 4/8/13 1:25pm Banjo Lisa:

Cypress Grove made my spine tingle. Gorgeously dark sounding instrument.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 4/8/13 1:25pm Planet Tyler:

DB sounds great. Much different version of You Are My Sunshine than my teddy bear used to play when wound up :)
  Mon. 4/8/13 1:30pm v k:

rare for me to deeply enjoy a musician upon first listen, and live at that - all the more reason Don Bikoff is fantastic
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/8/13 1:31pm Chris from DC:

Did Glenn Jones do a version of this Amy in Quebec? Sounds familiar.
Avatar Mon. 4/8/13 1:31pm Yair Yona:

wow. that's stunning.
Avatar Mon. 4/8/13 1:31pm Cecile:

v k, exactly. I am going to buy his CD the minute this show ends.

Beautifully played . . .
Avatar Mon. 4/8/13 1:42pm Cecile:

Chris from DC, some of it sounded like "The return of the Disco Void" or whatever that Fahey song was.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/8/13 1:43pm Chris from DC:

Yeah, Cecile, thanks! Beautiful stuff.

REALLY enjoying this in studio session.
  Mon. 4/8/13 1:50pm don:

The enthusiasm for the music that Irene has makes me feel like I was when I was 16 (some 43 years ago) when I was 'discovering' new music. Thank you for that Irene.
Avatar Mon. 4/8/13 1:51pm northguineahills:

Loving this live set by Don.

Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/8/13 1:58pm Chris from DC:

Have to ask, any chance of a DC show?
Avatar Mon. 4/8/13 2:01pm Cecile:

contact the Cedar Cultural Center in Mpls. THis is a huge folk town.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/8/13 2:03pm Chris from DC:

Will do. DC's also a good town for this sort of thing.
Avatar Mon. 4/8/13 2:03pm Cecile:

no, I mean Don Bikoff should - I'd bet they'd book him.
Avatar Mon. 4/8/13 2:08pm Cecile:

but yeah, if you're in Mpls looking for folk shows, the Cedar is a good place to go.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/8/13 2:10pm Chris from DC:

Oh, sorry, I meant the same thing (i.e., to send a suggestion for DC).
Avatar Mon. 4/8/13 2:12pm Cecile:

hahahahahahah great minds...
Avatar Mon. 4/8/13 2:15pm Van in DC:

Rats. I've missed everything since the first set break due to work. This has turned into an archive visit tbd for me...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/8/13 2:19pm Chris from DC:

Ah, looks like there's a Baltimore show April 28th. Nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/8/13 2:23pm Irene Trudel:

Don also told me that tomorrow he's recording a set for David Garland's Spinning On Air at WNYC-- which means I get to hear him again!
  Mon. 4/8/13 2:30pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

This is really nice
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/8/13 2:42pm KevinfromBayRidge:

As usual, thanks for making Monday a soft landing for me, Irene. Really,really great shew!
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/8/13 2:46pm Ralphine:

I guess that Pigeon has to find new DJs to square off against, since he has battered poor Fabio into submission.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/8/13 2:48pm Mike East:

that's debatable, Ralphine. I think there are no losers in any WFMU DJ battle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/8/13 2:49pm Mike East:

the score keeping is about as accurate as "Who's line is it Anyway?"
Avatar Mon. 4/8/13 2:50pm Van in DC:

Wow I love this
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/8/13 2:51pm Mike East:

(that should be whose, I think...just in case the grammar police are out there)
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/8/13 2:52pm Brian in UK:

Hello Irene. Hoping to catch AHAAH in Londinium next week.

@Sean perhaps Elvis Costello's Tramp the Dirt Down might be brought out following Mrs T's demise.
  Mon. 4/8/13 2:54pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Brian, good choice of tune.
  🎃 Mon. 4/8/13 2:55pm 12539:

Lovely show, Irene (& Don).
  Mon. 4/8/13 2:56pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Great show Irene and a great set from Don, have a great week everyone.
Avatar Mon. 4/8/13 2:59pm Van in DC:

What I got to hear I am happy to have heard. That which I didn't awaits my enjoyment later....thanks Irene and have a great week!

Was a great show Irene. Don was amazing, gonna buy his album now. thanks
