I did not hear Giant Man. There's a bunch of Italians talking, or is it Firesign Theatre?
  Thu. 5/22/14 3:12pm r i s k y:

Hey Fabio! It was a real joy meeting you outside the Swans show. We're tuned in here, glued to the radio like every Thursday. You oughtn't be so modest about your show IT'S FRIGGIN BRILLIANT! Cheers

Oh Giant Man played alright--there'd be something seriously wrong if we didn't hear that!

same here, rev. well said.
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 3:14pm Sem Chumbo:

@Rev.Turnip: glued, therefore you cannot become unstuck in time.
Good planning. Hello, Fabio, and Failures far and wide.

Failure to eat lunch. See yous all in a while.
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 3:38pm Cecile:

what did you do to piss off Gen Ken, Fabio? He should be on your show!
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 3:47pm Cecile:

just kidding! FMU has to spread the Gen Ken love around.

Fabio, are any of these trippy Italian releases reissues?

This is like the Ligeti stuff from 2001, on additional drugs.

I dunno...I think Thursdays could use a little more pizzazz...
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 3:58pm d¢ pät:

...and maybe fewer notes...
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 3:58pm DCE:

everyday could use a little more pizza. This is perfectly haunting.

Language Removal Services reminds me of Love Removal Machine.
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 4:02pm Cecile:

what an unsexy song about trying to be sexy. Bravo, Cult!
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 4:02pm V Priceless:

Fabio..that "Devil Is A Flying Machine" piece that Toby Dammit played...still freakin' one the craziest things I have ever heard!
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 4:03pm Cecile:

Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 4:03pm DCE:

wait...what do all these folks have in common?
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 4:03pm DCE:

haha, "bite her beak". Maybe I will.
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 4:06pm Cecile:

this sounds like a freaky movie.

@ Cecile - ROTFL at that Love/Language Removal Machine/Services cross-reference!

Gregory Peck! What's Gregory Peck doing in sound research?
  Thu. 5/22/14 4:16pm The_Brooklyn_Kid:

Who is speaking?
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 4:17pm Cecile:

A professor who is not really Gregory Peck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/22/14 4:18pm common:

  Thu. 5/22/14 4:20pm The_Brooklyn_Kid:

Low level electro magnetic waves? Sound like HARP?
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 4:21pm Cecile:

I never used to notice the "Woodpecker" changing freqs. every few SECS., maybe just after several MINS.
  Thu. 5/22/14 4:25pm Robert:

Other observers concluded it was over-the-horizon radar.

glad you agree, dce!
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 4:31pm DCE:

there was a dive bar by the airport called Night Flights. It was demolished before I was old enough to try it. Always wondered at the debaucheries that probably happened there.
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 4:33pm DCE:

so bored at work today I'm browsing the bowels of craigslist tinyurl.com...
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 4:33pm V Priceless:

that had kind of an air raid, dental drill, floor-waxer vibe to it
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 4:35pm Carmichael:

Back from my luncheon. I would appreciate ANY air raid sirens, teeth cleaning or sparkling kitchen floor music.
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 4:37pm Carmichael:

Oh, by the way rockers, I saw Veruca Salt last night on Conan the Entertainer. They was real good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/22/14 4:39pm common:

This is the music that comes out of my dogs mouth when he sings to me
  Thu. 5/22/14 5:01pm OTB:

Great selections here, Fabio. Thank You!
Also thanks to Cecile & Common ;)
  Thu. 5/22/14 5:03pm The Brooklyn Kid:

Honestly? The whole show sounds like a negative land album
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 5:04pm Cecile:

and how is that bad?

thanks OTB and RTD.
Hi, Ike!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/22/14 5:05pm dale:

mega thunderstorm up here by mount hope. let's hear a weather service alert fabs.
  Thu. 5/22/14 5:05pm The Brooklyn Kid:

I never said it was! I'm just use to Fabio playing some form of music
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 5:07pm Cecile:

ah, I get it, Brooklyn. Some of my favorite shows are when he plays spoken word over crazy music. There is one piece about the Montreal World's Fair that used to be a staple. IT was pretty great.
  Thu. 5/22/14 5:09pm The Brooklyn Kid:

@cecile you know what I'm talking about music you can trip out to:)
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 5:09pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 5:13pm Cecile:

"And now 'The Death of Mary Queen of Scots'"
  Thu. 5/22/14 5:14pm The Brooklyn Kid:

Does everyone know who William Basinski is? I know some in the station okay sone if his drone music bug I keep missing it
  Thu. 5/22/14 5:15pm The Brooklyn Kid:

For the record! I like negativeland! I want to be just like them
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 5:15pm chocolate monk:

some Ake Hodell would go well after this.
  Thu. 5/22/14 5:18pm The Brooklyn Kid:

Fabio? Just a little Basinski? Please:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/22/14 5:19pm Ike:

Great show today, Fabs.

this OA is pure faust vibe. No SUN RA fab???i am assuming Clay is gonna come stumbling into the studio and amaze us all with an Arkestra special... or maybe Star Castle?
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 5:52pm Night Owl:

I want to go on record as saying fleeble flob flurb flonk. These are my own words and I stand by them.

It's Kenny Hickey's birthday (Type O Negative guitarist). Sun who??
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 5:56pm Cecile:

Sun Ra has some of the widest variety of albums by one artist.
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 5:57pm Cecile:

some swing, some bop, some noise, and some unclassifiable.
Avatar Thu. 5/22/14 5:57pm Cecile:

I'm so into you
