Woooaaah ... someone help the people with the technical devices!

Heavy balancing problems ... from near in comprehensibility of intervieaw partner (in the beginning) to heavily distorted playback of of accustic guitar music on the pre-recorded john allen show.

Good morning, Ken (the former), Ken (the latter) Guido and Cory!

Here's a video for all of you animated GIFs lovers!

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - "Simple and Sure"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTy3bSofqTM

Some say the video is loosely based on the film 'Exterminating Angel' by Luis Buñuel. It features loads of "animated actors".
Avatar Wed. 6/11/14 7:31am w41:

Hi Ken and fellow listeners! Ken, I'd like to request a certain song the lyrics of which, when loosely translated, sound something like that...

I grew up just how daddy wanted to be
I'm forever in bell-bottoms, I'm always drunk
My gal's got big bewbage
My dad only wanted, but I made it

Every night, after every day
Daddy I'm remembering you
I'm cleaning my shoes, I'm sharpening my knife
Everything's fine I say to myself

I did just as mommy wanted
I finished school, though I'm always drunk
My gal's got rich folks
Can you see, mom, I'm an obeying child

Every night, after every day
Mommy I'm remembering you
I'm brushing my teeth, I'm sharpening my knife
Everything's fine I say to myself
Avatar    Wed. 6/11/14 7:47am Ken:

Thanks anyway, w41.

I hope one day I'll finally find a codebreaker to decipher the cryptic DVA, Anna Homler et al lyrics.

Some people say they made up their own languages. But according to my own conspiracy theory they sing about bringing about the revolution and defacement of the world bank system.

Dunno, but checking equpement before the show, esp. if it's gonna be pre-produced, should somehow be possible.

I'm amazed how much, Ken, your face has changed over the years. In your avatar we can clearly see how the hard work of running a radio station (or drug abuse) affected your facial expression.

"No es ese tipo de fiesta".

Great fun song. I find it curious when the singer at the end of the song shouts angrily out of the blue to Juliana, to "get down off there!!" in Spanish. But there are no clues about who is Juliana , or why or where she is.

Jandek. I have consciously avoided him for quite a while. But is he good? I have the impression is too Pitchforky for me.

I'd like to see an ultimate battle between Daniel Johnston and Jandek. To give you some perpective of how am I picturing this imagine Putin vs Obama, or better yet Godzilla vs that giant Moth.

BTW, Godzilla would be Daniel Johnston and Putin..Obama and Jandek, the moth.

Kurt,

I heard last week David Bowie or some rock star band was/were releasing an album in vinyl and said there would be a hidden track on it. Now, that's more impressive. The only place I can think of as hiding place is the hole in the middle of the LP.
