Hello. And why, pray tell, is the Record Fair moving to late May this year?
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:02pm Droll:

I wanted to make a Forgotify for YT...
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:03pm Alison Porchnik:

Where's today's funny picture?
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:03pm rrg:

Droll, is there an API that would make that possible?
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:03pm steve:

rrg - probably less chance of it getting hurricaned out again?
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:04pm rrg:

Maybe, but surely that can't be a serious concern. Must be something else.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:04pm Droll:

rrg, Yes, but that's an offline discussion.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:04pm Irwin:

Sorry for lack of visuals. Couldn't find anything worthwhile this week. Use your imagination.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:05pm rrg:

Imagination fails me. Words fail me.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:05pm Stevel:

I am making bad shadow puppets on the wall. Pretty much just a rabbit, really.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:07pm rrg:

A rabbit is the only shadow puppet I can do, too.

And I can't juggle.

But I can whistle.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:07pm common:

dogs are everywhere.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:07pm Alison Porchnik:

I'm picturing a sea of dogs
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:07pm rrg:

I like this dog song.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:08pm Droll:

I know one place there are no dogs -- this song. How ironic. It begs the question, who let the dogs out?
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:08pm Whooda:

Irwin, just checked out the Flora site. Am amazed.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:08pm Alison Porchnik:

Yay! Coconut!
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:09pm rrg:

Yay! A Nilsson song!
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:09pm Laura L:

Is that a call for help? You need some funny pictures?
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:09pm rrg:

Yes, Laura. He's crying for help.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:10pm steve:

Dewan! no -atron though
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:10pm Irwin:

LL: Mail a few, hep me out heah.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...just heard some Damon on KCRW...that one was about robots though, not dogs...
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:11pm rrg:

The reason I never heard of this is (in this case) that it was just released.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:13pm rrg:

My research tells me that there is an "acoustic version" of "Dogs Are Everywhere".
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:15pm Uncle Michael:

Greetings, Irwin, et al.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Forgotify sounds like an App to help you forget something you are already overexposed to...now *that* would be useful...
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:17pm rrg:

Tell me again what an optigan is.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:17pm Uncle Michael:

It's a geometric shape with just the right number of sides.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:19pm steve:

i was offered a free working Optigan last year, and didnt take it. sure there's zero room for it in my apartment, but i'll never stop regretting it.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...aim it @ TVs & Commercial Radio - Forgotified !!...
...an Optimally Organic Octagon...or a Spanish Conquistador Explorer...or an opponent of Godzilla...I don't know...

- hey ! - it's all of the above :
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:22pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Wow, I haven't thought of Optiganally Yours since Yancy played them on January 5, 2003.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:23pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Oh, man. The one Wednesday I have WFMU on all day and no Joe Frank.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:23pm rrg:

More music to get. But it's an inexpensive indulgence.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...she's good for this too...
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:24pm steve, the horse with no name:

Dogs are everywhere in Sochi, so local death squads killing them.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:24pm Webhamster Henry:

Looks like a nice Nillson tribute. Note: there's a yellow vinyl version.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:25pm rrg:

Mr. Pete from Boston and NJ: Make up your mind!

And I would say, use the archives to feed your hunger for Joe Frank. And the Internet.

I know, it's easier if Irwin just does it when you need it.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:25pm KP:

rrg, what is the inexpensive indulgence if you dont mind me asking.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:25pm rrg:

Why would you want all that surface noise?

Get the CD.
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:27pm mike Y:

Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:27pm Alison Porchnik:

This sounds like a Libertarian anthem
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...this M.Melcher makes me miss Jason Elbogen somehow...I'd forgotten for a minute...well it also makes up for it same time...
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:27pm rrg:

I would not object if you played a few more tracks from "This Is the Town" this afternoon.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:31pm Droll:

I think the Aussies quietly stole the pop crown from Sweden sometime in 2013.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:32pm Alison Porchnik:

He has a song about EVERYBODY!!!
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:32pm rrg:

Not me.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:32pm Mike East:

great album title
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:33pm Mike East:

@rrg - if you call him up, I'll bet you he'll write a song about you.
his phone # is readily available
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:34pm rrg:

Wait, "Papa Razzi and the Photogs": that's the same guy? The Passionate and Objective Jokerfan?
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:35pm Mike East:

yeah, same guy. Watch "Local Legends" - it is a very good film, imo.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:36pm bobdoesthings:

Jokerfan is also - The Ultra Right Wing Conservatives and The Extreme Left Wing Liberals ... played on Ken's show this morning.. as well as one or two other names..
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:38pm Mike East:

a lot more than one or two other names...a LOT more. the dude is prolific.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:38pm glenn:

yes. matt farley.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:39pm Uncle Michael:

I'd let him write my theme. I'm generous like that.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:39pm steve:

heres a complete list of all Matt Farley bands (its from his own website so is probably accurate) www.moternmedia.com...
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:41pm rrg:

Wow. Tornados.

I think a "wow" is sufficient in this case.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:41pm bobdoesthings:

Ahh.. neat.
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:41pm rat musk love:

Nice set list
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:41pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

My mind IS made up, I just can't decide which way it's made up.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...'NewHampshuh LoveSong Warriors' !...
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:42pm rrg:

Dozens of names on that Matt Farley list.
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:42pm LovecraftDude888:

man, you guys missed some great 70s cheeze pop earlier....Cheezier than Annnie's mac and cheese
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:43pm Parq:

RRG, thanks for that list. I think we can all agree that FMU listeners would want to hear a track from "The Strange Man Who Sings About Dead Animals".
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:43pm rrg:

I suppose that's why "(and NJ)" is parenthesized.

Well, that's the wrong choice if you ask me.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:44pm bobdoesthings:

I did this 6-7 years ago.. me and college buddies made about10-12 band names with rules as to what type of songs we'd make.. and we'd get drunk and make songs on the spot..
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:44pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Nick Saloman from the Bevis Frond co-hosts the Friday morning 7-8am psych-rock show on WMBR here. Great stuff, especially the commentary. But what always feels (ironically) odd is that his speaking voice sounds just like his singing voice.
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:47pm LovecraftDude888:

oh boy didn't know this story...so sick and sad. He thought the kitty kats were talking from beyond the grave to him earlier than that.....now that is not good.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:47pm Uncle Michael:

First UK single to hit #1 in the U.S.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:47pm rrg:

Hey, my stream is cutting out.

Stop doing that.
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:47pm mike Y:

Your looping or its a mind fuck
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:48pm Uncle Michael:

  Wed. 2/5/14 3:48pm Laura L:

Uh-oh, me too, RRG. iTunes not responding......
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:48pm LovecraftDude888:

mine's cutting too. Cutting Crew....oh noooo
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:48pm Droll:

Damn stream stopped in the middle of the Joe Meek story! Curse you, technology!

Pop up player went dead, switched to Windows 24k which is fine.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...took like a minute to rebuffer...
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:49pm rrg:

I have a Joe Meek collection here in my iTunes library. I surprise myself sometimes.
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:49pm mike Y:

I just refreshed it works fine now... However it was freaky
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:50pm Parq:

J'regret, the pop up player is my only option at the moment. Hope it settles down.
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:50pm LovecraftDude888:

switched to 128 now i'm good.
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:50pm Laura L:

Just now came back on. Digital hiccup.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:50pm rrg:

  Wed. 2/5/14 3:51pm LovecraftDude888:

anyway...when you are watching The Exorcist playing with yer Ouija Board all day long...and thinking the kitty cats are speaking from the Beyond....that is no guten!
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:51pm LovecraftDude888:

so that must be where Phil Spector got his inspiration to go nutty
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:51pm Irwin:

You guys should invest that newfangled device called a RADIO.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:51pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

BTW, I am deeply steeped in Joe Frank on the internet -- I even have a joefrank.com account. I was just in one of those "can't wait to see what comes on at 4:00" moods only human surprise radio can provide.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:52pm rrg:

Joe Meek produced Peter Cook singing "Georgia on my Mind". It's in this collection here. Oh my.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Joe Meek's spirit having a funny...wonder if he & Spector were ever in the same room - or if George Martin knew him...& calls to mind the Radiophonic people...amazing sound on this thing awlright - & he got it in the Charts !...
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:52pm rrg:

Yeah, you're going to push me back to the airwaves, you are.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:52pm Ike:

91.1 is solid. I can only say that because I'm not in the office today -- reception on the East Side blows.
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:53pm LovecraftDude888:

reception in my neck of LI is really awful....I can't even get WFMU easily without tons of powered antennae on any of my other systems here. Really terrible.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:54pm Parq:

Harsh, Irwin. You know your popularity extends well beyond the reach of the East Orange xmitter.
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:54pm mike Y:

Last wed was the first show I missed in 10 weeks. I cant Irwin I live in Saratoga Springs but have net will travel
Your show insppired me to mine back up and running again .

@Ike - you're lucky. The city's a mess today. My boots are still drying out.
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:55pm LovecraftDude888:

but weird thing is growing up in thrilling exciting Levittown LI I had great radio recep. with basic Terk antenna for years! Makes no sense...I'm only 10 miles or under from there
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:56pm LovecraftDude888:

now I have a Twerk Antenna....

I went to an electronic store to buy a radio once... they just laughed.
  Wed. 2/5/14 3:59pm mike Y:

However liver is a bit pissed LOL
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:59pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Pandora has pretty much made radios obsolete. It knows what I want better than I do, never plays anything with the potential to upset me, and helps trim my tastes down to manageable, streamlined parameters.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 3:59pm Carmichael:

Will be ear-gleaning the tunes whilst I work. Not lots of posting, but maybe a clicky-star here, as opposed to there.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 4:00pm Alison Porchnik:

After the Rapture/Apocalypse (whichever comes first) you'll only hear WFMU on terrestrial radio.
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:00pm mike Y:

Pandora takes the surprise out of stuff new.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 4:01pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

At which point, Alison, I drive the 200 miles back to signal range immediately.
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:01pm mike Y:

Yay wolfgang
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:01pm LovecraftDude888:

I got a Grundig shortwave radio a few years back, why I dunno...for emergency reasons...so useless. Shortwave is like..a joke now
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 4:01pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Pandora is the radio equivalent of going to the WFMU record fair and just standing there and being annoyed that people haven't come up to me with records they've figured out I'll enjoy.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 4:01pm Droll:

I prefer the sound of "He-low copters" over "hell-ih copters", even though I know it's wrong. I also prefer the phrasing of Wolfgang to other singers.

...even though...

What goes on on shortwave nowadays? What goes on on CB nowadays, for that matter? I have a strong desire to buy a CB except that it'll be something interesting in the truck for the smash-n-grabbers (though the joke will be on them).

We love to cream. & cream.
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:06pm LovecraftDude888:

haven't touched a CB for decades...the shortwave now is like....just nothing but propaganda stations third world and non-english programming and mainly Fire n Brimstone preacher shows. Awful!! total waste o' time.

  Wed. 2/5/14 4:07pm LovecraftDude888:

c.b. is kinda the original internet, in a way.

Did I hear "cream and dream"?
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 4:08pm Parq:

That cover was brilliant, but I can find jack about it on Google.
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:08pm LovecraftDude888:

anybody recall that 80s movie with Arnie from Christine (Keith Gordon) where he tunes in Heaven on a radio...or something
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:08pm Laura L:

Wow! a lovely cover--much in the spirit of the spectacular original by Pat Stanton Gjonola!
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 4:09pm Webhamster Henry:

@LovecraftDude it was called STATIC. I used to catsit for Keith Gordon.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 4:09pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

CB is specifically the original chatroom.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 4:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I think she got rid of a cream or two...
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:09pm LovecraftDude888:

Static was the film 1985...right WH thanks! Really nutty film.... not uplifting but good
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 4:10pm Irwin:

LL: How do you pronounce Gjonola?
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:10pm berbo:

Yes she did. That was really climax of the song.
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:10pm LovecraftDude888:

I tried watching Convoy two years ago and couldn't do it
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:11pm LovecraftDude888:

catsit for Keith G? holy shite!
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:11pm Laura L:

Ooh, I am not sure--that was the last name of the man who played the caveman in the show--she married him. When she sang that she was still with maiden name of Stanton. Lives outside Chicago.
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:14pm LovecraftDude888:

makes great use of The The "This is the Day"....
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:17pm LovecraftDude888:

what would be a goof is, one day WFMU does a show or two all on CB....I dunno how....virtual CB? "breaker breaker HPL Dude...got a smokey on your tail" etc.
  Wed. 2/5/14 4:18pm LovecraftDude888:

there's also these Ham Radio transmitter/receivers that are act. cheap...but no idea what that's all about, or if it's worth getting one. I doubt it. And to do shows you gotta get a license
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 4:18pm Irwin:

Laura and Porchnik: Got the photos. If I don't post one today (still might), will consider for future playlists. Thanks for sending.

My job got in the way of my WFMU. I hate when that happens. What did I miss?

Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 4:20pm Ike:

@Lovecraft, it's a little hard to keep up with ya sometimes. So many comments. I've done that in the past, but people seem to pay more attention if I'm more concise.

rrg, You better watch it, on Mary Wing's comments we discussed "offensive comments board behavior" and concluded being a fuckin' jerk and grammar errors were most offensive to WFMU listeners.

Why is everyone else so suspicious of country music and it's musicians? I think they're the some of the few remaining legitimate profession musicians. He doesn't use Autotune, either.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 5:22pm glenn:

probably because most of today's "country" isn't.

Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 5:27pm TDK60:

Mr. DJ, yeah Weir's 'Ace' has another great tune -- 'Cassidy' @ Beatnik/proto-hippie Neal C. Interesting, haunting chord changes.
Yes, to Brian Beattie -- great Austin bassist. His '80s band Glass Eye was cool. Great guy too, hosted me as a struggling musician in his humble Austin abode.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 5:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- of course 'Country' meant Bluegrass, & 'Western' Cowboy songs - so that may have been said once or twice in earnest...

@ rrg: Do you look like John Sebastian?
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 5:35pm rrg:

No one has ever told me so, TDK.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 5:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I wonder if Soft Machine get credit for being very early Fusion. I wonder if they were earlier than people who get credit for it; not that this is Fusiony - which maybe relates to Tom Wilson's presence - ??
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 5:36pm rrg:

Though some people used to think I looked like Steven Spielberg.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 5:36pm Droll:

I'm so old I remember when Soft Machine was still called "Soft Stone Tool", and then "Soft Wheel", and eventually when all the bronze age bands hit, they changed it to "Machine".

I just talked to my band and yes, both Dan and Joel called the "New Droll Band" poo-poo nostalgia.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 5:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- so - we @ least have parameters...now choose a color...
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 5:47pm Droll:

Specifically, when I asked if knockoffs of our band name was poo-poo, Joel said "Sure" and Dan asked for an example, which I provided.
