What hope of another drum special?

A lot of smart-ass people, you mean!
     Sun. 8/4/13 9:29pm 12539:

Don't forget to tell us about Al.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 9:30pm Dave Mandl:

@PSS: Hahaha. Well I like smart-asses, so that's OK.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 9:31pm pacific standard simon:

Is this song an example of what you can do with one of those lap steel guitars that you always see in pawn shops?
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 9:31pm Dave Mandl:

@RRN63: Nothing that exciting. I was actually in South Carolina. Which was beautiful.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 9:32pm Dave L.B. is RRN63:

What pawn shop - ?!
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 9:32pm Droll:

Okay, you lured me out of the kitchen with this Van Shipley meets Snakefinger track (Playing Along). Great sound.
Now back to cooking.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 9:32pm pacific standard simon:

Having an icy cool drink, one hopes.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 9:33pm Dave Mandl:

@PSS: I *think* it was an electric 12-string. But you can probably get similar sounds from a lap steel.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 9:34pm Dave Mandl:

Not too many icy cool ones, but I did spend a lot of time in a swimming pool, which is almost as good.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 9:37pm pacific standard simon:

I'm not much of a swimmer, so I tend to envision the liquids inside the body, rather than surrounding it.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 9:39pm Dave Mandl:

I learned to swim ridiculously late in life, but I'm OK at it. My daughter's better, and you can't keep her out of the pool.
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 9:40pm Droll:

PSS, Ugly bags of mostly water... I know what you mean.
  Sun. 8/4/13 9:50pm trish:

Bags inside of bags inside of bags.

Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:00pm pacific standard simon:

How does Shelley sound like someone from Weezer on record and still sound the way he does on FMU?
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:03pm Dave L.B. is RRN63:

...I love that the Monkees did this & put it over...
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:03pm Dave Mandl:

@PSS: That's a trade secret.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:04pm pacific standard simon:

DANG!
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:04pm Dave Mandl:

Agreed, the Monkees' version is very good.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:05pm Dave L.B. is RRN63:

Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:06pm Dave L.B. is RRN63:

DM: I mean the Subversive element, of course...
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:09pm Dave L.B. is RRN63:

...Subversion so important to Pop/PowerPop...they had to do it well to make it work, yeah...
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 10:15pm Droll:

I wonder what the name of that album means. Sounds like middle-eastern hammer dulcimer.
Don't listen to DM, there is no magic to FMU: There's an app that makes Weezer sound like Michael Shelley.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:19pm Dave Mandl:

I was trying to throw up a smokescreen.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:21pm pacific standard simon:

Belching brimstone, Dave?
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:22pm Dave Mandl:

That's one way of looking at it.
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 10:31pm Droll:

I scream! You scream! We all scream for smokescreen!

Very clever, Mr. Mandl. Pet Shop Boys is NOT rock and roll! Do your unused minutes accumulate show to show?
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:39pm Kurt Gottschalk:

aw, tuned in to hear the last three notes of lovely shosty ...
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:40pm Dave L.B. is RRN63:

...were short Shosty...
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 10:45pm Droll:

We're short A440.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:47pm Dave Mandl:

@Kurt: Those are the best three notes of the piece.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:50pm Dave L.B. is RRN63:

...I is weary - will be listening in one state of consciousness or another!...
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:52pm Dave Mandl:

@DLBRRN: 'Night. Thanks for joining us!
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:57pm pacific standard simon:

I'm shifting to-and-fro between the comments here and elsewhere, and gazing out the window at the slant of the lovely early evening sunlight on the locust tree beside our house.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:57pm Kurt Gottschalk:

miss shosty but get ayler and blakey. I'm ok now.

Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 10:58pm pacific standard simon:

Much prefer the Blakey meeself.
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 10:59pm Droll:

This reminds me Irwin still owes us a Good Doctor co-hosted Blakey special.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 11:01pm Dave Mandl:

@PSS: Just realized I never answered your question about the drum special...We plan to do another one, but not for a while, maybe late this year. And it'll be on either Irwin's or EFD's show. I'll let everyone know, of course.
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 11:11pm fleep:

Is this rock and roll? I ask the authorities on board.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 11:11pm Dave Mandl:

No! It's better.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 11:13pm pacific standard simon:

Thanks for the info, Dave! I stepped out to take pictures of a garter snake on the stoop.
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 11:14pm Droll:

. o O ( Mandl is saving all his rock-n-roll minutes for some kind of complete album side prog masterwork... I just know it! )
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 11:15pm pacific standard simon:

Jethro Tull doing "Beggar's Farm", probably.

Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 11:24pm pacific standard simon:

If we go flute, how about some Herbie Mann?
  Sun. 8/4/13 11:26pm Robert:

Dave, did you know John Pachak (who you might remember from LBC) has relocated to So. Car.?
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 11:27pm Droll:

DM, To be fair, it's not like the turntables provide infinite MTBF either. And don't get me started about those computers!
  Sun. 8/4/13 11:28pm Robert:

Meanwhile, I was at Ken Gale's End of the Paleozoic Era party last week, and he told us all the on-air people at WBAI had just been laid off due to lack of money to pay them--a problem you'll never have here.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 11:29pm Dave Mandl:

@Robert: No, I didn't know that. Of course I remember John, though I haven't seen him in ages. How's he doing?
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 11:31pm Dave Mandl:

Ugh, BAI is hopeless. I used to be a devoted listener, but they've been wrecking that station slowly and steadily over the past 20 years.
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 11:32pm fleep:

Same goes for KPFK, so Pacifica is consistent. Sigh.
  Sun. 8/4/13 11:33pm Robert:

He's doing fine physically, and said he'd let everybody (who, who knows, might include some reading here) know as soon as he's settled in. It was for financial reasons. We all knew he would have to move, it's just that I'd assumed until recently he would be staying in this metropolitan area.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 11:35pm Dave Mandl:

@fleep: It's a lunatic asylum. And they forced out the sane people one by one.
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 11:38pm pacific standard simon:

KPFA as well -- it was my WFMU in the '70s & '80s, but that was over long ago.
  Sun. 8/4/13 11:40pm Robert:

Interesting that you're describing a SLOW 20 yr. process. I was used to, and even rather amused by, the periodic "political" spasms Pacifica was infamous for, but obviously you're describing something worse.
  Sun. 8/4/13 11:42pm Robert:

What was funny to me was the way each such crisis at WBAI or Pacifica generally was described as if the latest were the only one they'd ever had, a complete aberration.
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 11:45pm Droll:

Possibly an entirely different group of people each time? "New to me" makes new again?
Avatar    Sun. 8/4/13 11:55pm pacific standard simon:

Shofar, show good.
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 11:58pm Droll:

DM, See you next week, looking forward to the prog opus!
     Sun. 8/4/13 11:58pm 12539:

Thanks Dave. Good luck catching the train.
Avatar    Mon. 8/5/13 12:00am Dave Mandl:

Thanks, folks. Have a great week. Should be able to catch the train, I think...
