"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

I clearly have not been keeping up with Jandek.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/13 6:11am Pat in Philadelphia:

This is really lovely. Was excited to hear these Jandek piano tunes, but had no idea what they would sound like.
Avatar    Wed. 9/4/13 6:14am George of Troy:

G'morning John and gang.

Avatar Wed. 9/4/13 6:19am John Allen:

good morning, i was just talking about all of you.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/13 6:21am robert_karlsruhe_germany:

i love this: listening to you while driving my bike through karlsruhe city at 12am!
its like these stores that are open 24/7 which you can find in berlin etc but not here in k-town. so, YOU are my 24/7 store and thats great.
ps: but this piano guy! couldnt you just play some debussy? though, xo!
  Wed. 9/4/13 6:24am Emile:

Morning. Time for my weekly morning measure of bourbon from my John Allen shot glass, then to sit back and enjoy the show.
  Wed. 9/4/13 6:31am Emile:

Though this Jandek is infuriating! Sorry! Luckily there is a car alarm going off outside.
Avatar    Wed. 9/4/13 6:32am davex:

Good morning John and all!

Robert: Sounds good. Do you have a good flatrate phone data plan for that?
Avatar    Wed. 9/4/13 6:52am maestroso:

G'morning... that Jandek was rather nice. Didn't know he did music like that.
Avatar    Wed. 9/4/13 7:37am AndrewC.:

I want to read the score for this Carles Santos.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/13 7:57am robert_karlsruhe_germany:

@davex:
yes, probably i'm throwing out my whole data budget for that.
but so far, its still running. and so am i.
good morning!

Avatar Wed. 9/4/13 8:05am robert_karlsruhe_germany:

i have to ask something regarding the iphone app:
is it possible to get logged in there with my name and all my favorites etc?
that would be IT!
thanks.

Julia Holter - first track I've ever been moved to give a star to. Does this mean she'll send me a birthday card?
Avatar    Wed. 9/4/13 8:11am AndrewC.:

I heard Ken saying there was a new iphone app due soon. Maybe it'll be friendship aware.
Avatar    Wed. 9/4/13 8:17am Cheri Pi:

Good Morning John and company! Dagnabit I missed Godley & Creme.
  Wed. 9/4/13 8:19am bill:

Avatar Wed. 9/4/13 8:21am John Allen:

Avatar    Wed. 9/4/13 8:21am maestroso:

Hmm. Weird. The star on this song keeps disappearing.

Clicky stars don't clicky for just anyone.
Avatar    Wed. 9/4/13 8:29am PKNY:

I want an auto-clicky start whenever some Jonh Bonham boom-bap is played.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/13 8:30am glenn:

i probably haven't heard play it again for 35 years, but i could still see the album cover in my mind's eye.
Avatar    Wed. 9/4/13 8:32am Cheri Pi:

Avatar    Wed. 9/4/13 8:38am doca:

hello JA, magnificent show for Wednesday morning, I love when WFMU fulfills what I didn't even know I was missing for.
Avatar    Wed. 9/4/13 8:40am Brian in UK:

G'day John Allen.

@glenn for some unknown reason I was humming 'Don't You Fret' the other day by your favourite group.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/13 8:43am glenn:

hah! the kinks are, simply, the greatest rock and roll band ever.
Avatar    Wed. 9/4/13 8:57am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Tell Ken *not* to play the Kinks.
