Dave, I'm concerned that the new schedule means you'll be starting even after the final stretch has begun.

Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 9:11pm Droll:

I also have questions about how the schedule change effects WoE. For instance, is the amount of rock constant by percent or elapsed time? Is the show still 2% rock, or now 3%?

By far, best part of the new schedule is A440 is back!

@Droll: I'm still working on those figures. Can I get back to you?

Well now we'll have to adjust to the segue from "Not Monica" to WOE as of next Sunday.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 9:22pm Droll:

Take your time on that one, but I need the answer before the Final Stretch. I don't suppose you've worked out if the number of echoes (feedback) is being reduced by 1/3rd or if the delay time is being decreased holding the number of echoes constant?

We have to make a lot of accommodations on our end, you know.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/1/13 10:01pm pacific standard simon:

If you were in SF, you probably wouldn't want to be Jorma sitting on a stoop. His ex-wife (the one who painted the cover of this album) was a notorious Mission District drug abuser who eventually managed to die of it, a few years ago.

I was a big J. Airplane fan when I was a kid, but Hot Tuna fan too. Sorry to hear about his wife. I didn't know that.

Me too, Dave. Always thought of Amon Duul II as the Jefferson Airplane of Germany, and X as the PUNK Jefferson Airplane.

pss, Then what is X's "We Built This City?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/1/13 10:08pm pacific standard simon:

I stopped buying their albums by then. Maybe that god-awful cover of "Wild Thing"?

I do know that Live At The Whisky is their 30 Seconds Over Winterland.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/1/13 10:14pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- amusing, as X is usually associated w/ The Doors like that; if there was a Punk Airplane - I'd like to think Jack Casady woulda been in it anyway!...
Avatar    Sun. 12/1/13 10:15pm JakeGould:

I appreciate X the same way I appreciate the Replacements: Neither ban’s music does anything for me, but I am repeatedly lectured on their relevance. Which means… I don’t care. Maybe if I grew up in L.A. or Minnesota when each respective band was big… But don’t care.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/1/13 10:18pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- wull - X was in there early enuff, pretty original - great poetry & energy (lecture lecture)...Replacements a kinda Punk Stones or Faces mebee (??) - just great R'n'R panache, which is needed from time to time...now, Husker Du...

...Flesheaters from L.A. ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/1/13 10:20pm pacific standard simon:

Jack had some "new wave" cred, with SVT. And we used to bump into Paul Kantner at The Mabuhay in North Beach -- he was quite interested in The Nuns, who were also sort of Airplane-like in their lineup, if not their music.
Avatar    Sun. 12/1/13 10:20pm JakeGould:

Husker Du I can get. But I don’t. I grew up weird. I do appreciate Greg Norton’s mustache. Holy crap. Good facial hair.

Completists are the only ones left _buying_ music, thus massive box sets. The upside of a Yes box set is.... uh....
Avatar    Sun. 12/1/13 10:26pm JakeGould:

I want a Roger Dean box set. Just a huge box set of Roger Dean album covers. Maybe on big 12x12 pieces of wood to mimic an album’s dimensions. No words even. Just images. A box set I can place on a shelf or literally mount on a wall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/1/13 10:27pm pacific standard simon:

I can't imagine liking Herbie Hancock enough to own more than a record or two. And I don't get the "relevance" (or significance) thing that Jake mentions, aside from The Beatles and like that. Either you like a band or you don't, and everybody should get off your back.
Avatar    Sun. 12/1/13 10:28pm JakeGould:

Pacific Standard, you mean how people have thrown the Replacements & X down my throat as dogma? I don’t get it either. Don’t accept it either. Just listen to the music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/1/13 10:30pm pacific standard simon:

Actually, I listen to the music all the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/1/13 10:30pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- wull - there is real 'history' - but a band can be 'relevant' like that - & just not to your tastes. Very little tastes good when shoved down your throat...

Droll, I know of those books. But I am talking about a literal crate of 12x12 wood. Each adorned with Roger Dean album art. Not Hipgnosis (like some of their stuff, but a lot of it is bad (i.e.: Black Sabbath covers), but Roger Dean.

Jake, Many of those albums were gatefolds, so you probably mean 24x12. And you probably need both inside and outside, so two 24x12 per release... It's a lot of wall space, but would be a trip to stare at -- I get it.

You'd think Artists would vibe great w/ each other (ever intro'd any to each other?) - but if you think about it - they're opinionated enuff about doing it their own way & not the other guy's or they wouldn't be bothered.

...there's all kinds of Writing just like there's all kinds of Music or whatever...reviews bug me when they trash something in a Genre the reviewer doesn't even like to begin w/ & ergo prob. doesn't understand (like Sinatra saying R'n'R is bad Swing: & your point is??) - altho' it may be legit to critique a whole Genre (say, teenpop) in a broad sense...
- You mean - if they don't like it, they're just not publishing a review @ all? I can see that as a reasonable style choice...

Droll, in someways we are living in a very open yet closed media world. Also the logic of people who say that BuzzFeed needs to be positive to assure affiliate ad clicks is nuts. I work in web tech. I assure you the tone of the review & ad clicks have little correlation.

I don't have a problem with negative reviews when they're written well. I have problem with any review that invents a model for a piece and then knocks it for not fitting that model the way the reviewer decided it should.
  Sun. 12/1/13 11:44pm Bar:

You all got it right, i guess..
  Sun. 12/1/13 11:45pm Bar:

I don't do any of that, i just could formulate anything complex than that.

I'm going to miss this 3rd hour in future weeks.
  Sun. 12/1/13 11:45pm Bar:

couldn't* more*

My attitude towards reviews are I skim them. We live in a modern media age where I can just click to read an excerpt or listen to a clip. So the world of reviews is not the same as it once was. Or blah, blah, blah… Listen to WFMU. I like something. I buy it on my iPhone. That is 2013 to me.
  Sun. 12/1/13 11:46pm Bar:

Imagine in the 60's among few writing media....
  Sun. 12/1/13 11:47pm Bar:

Writing as in pressing media

12359, Don't worry, Dave's going to drop the first hour which is always a snoozer anyhow. We'll still get the second two hours of flute solos and 7/8 time that we came for.
  Sun. 12/1/13 11:48pm Bar:

You couldn't spare words, like today. I don't know whats best actually..

- that's true I think: the triangulation of Artist-Critic-Audience has changed from when everyone spent so much time worrying about it - but I could be wrong...I often say FMU brings me the Audio of stuff I only used to read about...

Reviews are good for giving a release context. I usually read reviews after I've heard the album several times.

@Droll: I thought the second hour was the snoozer.
Avatar    Sun. 12/1/13 11:50pm JakeGould:

Reviews are more like critical documentation on the positive side nowadays. On the negative/cynical side nowadays, I see reviews as simply search engine fodder nowadays. There is so much noise out there. People just want to grab Google hits to get clicks.

- much more stuff faster & more sensationalistic for immediate consumption...that's my critique...more explosions & gunfire...

When I have to work on Sunday, I miss the first half hour anyway. Now I won't.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 11:53pm Droll:

Maybe the solution to crappy consumer reviews is to go back to professional music criticism.

It’s a contrast to when I would take the subway to Tower Records on 3rd & Broadway to get Pulse. And would read “Desert Island Discs” to get clues to cool stuff. Now I can’t stand lists… The Interwebs is just lists!
  Sun. 12/1/13 11:55pm Bar:

Same here when there was Bizz Magazine.

Thanks, DaveM! Good luck catching your train.

..it's like Todd Rundgren, I think, observing that putting the production tools in everyone's hands would *not* make everyone a skilled engineer; Writing well about Music is kinda hard ! Most people can't tell you why they like it or don't *@ all*. Very many are hacks. It's notorious that people review things they don't even listen to, watch, read...

Music journalism is one thing. Never saw a record review that was worth a fart in a handbag.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 11:59pm Droll:

Thanks Dave, see you next week.

Next Sunday is going to seem like a daylight saving time switch.

History books are the same, very few of them saw the actual story.
