Options Brian Turner: Playlist from April 23, 2013 Options

Order and disorder in a freeform haze of terribly-played guitars, shorted-out electronics, found audio detritus, strange sounds from strange lands all around. Psych-punk-junk, collage, even pop. Lots of in-studio live performances to boot.

How did 3 different bands come up with a sing with the same song title, same lyrics and similar melody? That's a head scratcher.

Elisa, you need to register first, then to pledge to the station. If you already pledged, register and ask (Joe?) to get one
Avatar Tue. 4/23/13 4:01pm Cecile:

Elisa, pledge money to FMU and you get one, too.
  Tue. 4/23/13 4:02pm Elisa in Italy:

@ Fred. Thanks, I appreciate it...I did pledge actually.

So because I pledged I don't get a heart? I'm heartless for pledging?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/23/13 4:17pm G:

Some people don't want the heart icon. Clicking that box gives them that option. If you leave the box unclicked, the heart should show up...

K-Tel - now that's a label you don't see much of nowadays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 4/23/13 4:20pm fred:

@Elisa: that option is to hide the heart. Since you registered after pledging, I think the heart isn't automatic. Someone should be able to fix that for you, I guess you could ask Joe McGasko about it, be sure to include your listener number, and to put it in the "private info" section of your profile

'Sheet Music' is a great name...
- Didn't Moroder kinda invent DanceMusic Production as it's now known - ?
Avatar Tue. 4/23/13 5:41pm Droll:

My favorite Hipgnosis cover is Genesis' Trick of the Tail, although the 10cc How Dare You cover has all the song references... Packaging matters... mattered.

DJ Moroder would be overwhelming or underwhelming, but not in between.
