I tried pushing the play button extra vigorously, repeatedly, hoping I could make the show start earlier but it didn't work... BBL.

no, you just have to wait in here like I do

funnily enough (although not funny) I just saw what you wrote on the Negativland fb page

Sorry I wasn't here two weeks ago... was just coming back from seeing my father-in-law die

more Don tonight

Yeah... talk about 'opposite' ends of the spectrum: He was Stan Ricker, inventor of 'helf-speed mastering', and co-creator of the Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs

The last named Over The Edge that Don broadcast was entitled Universe - Part 91, so I'm just doing some more

just looking him up... oh wow
what a week (or three)

I don't know if you remember those 'heavy' records from the late-'70's that had 'Original Master Records' at the top of them... those were his.

I took the wife on a date to see Negativland in DC, back in 1989... been a fan ever since .

ok I have to start pasting now but am listening/reading :)

well... it was kind of a bummer... you weren't here last week

Enjoyed your last live show here - the Don Joyce show. My condolences. I only met Don a few times and corresponded sporadically over the years. But also a huge fan of his show. Been listening since I've been on the interwebs, even with dialup.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/31/15 7:06pm steve:

is this Harpo's voice?? i read his autobiography and still have never his music until this moment

I told everyone who would listen, "Don was "Revolution #9"... with a POINT!!"

good evening :)
yes I saw what you wrote on negativland's page, Rich
no Vince, too far away, couldn't afford it :(

Good evening! Me too with the thanks for the Don Joyce shows. I grew up listening to Over the Edge on KPFA instead of sleeping like I should have. I called in a few times, quietly, to avoid waking my parents.

oops, that's me

for many years I would phone in at 8am and play minidisc down the phone on Over The Edge

How man grains are there in irony bread? Only one: A grain of truth.
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:11pm Rich in Washington:

I think '99 was when I first started listening regularly. I used a plain old dial telephone to pipe sound with the earpiece of a headphone clamped to the mouthpiece. It sounded surprisingly good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/31/15 7:11pm JakeGould:

God I just sounded like a ponce.

the Over the Edge theme music still gives me teenage flashbacks
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:12pm ironybread:

Yes, but I meant in the sense of pressuring them via compliments and endless badgering into making lots of new product.
  Fri. 7/31/15 7:13pm vince:

Did you all see that picture of Don from 1966, they put on the Neg FB page?

Gonna sheath your sword, might as well sheath it to its hilt.

yes, Vince!
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:14pm ironybread:

I used to call into Over the Edge when I was still living in Idaho, in pre-streaming days when I couldn't listen to the show and had no idea of the content except what I could hear coming down the phone...on one show I stayed on for five minutes doing nothing but playing back Bernard Herrman's "Love Theme" from Vertigo over their conversation

Firesign stream address anybody didn't know:

I too first called in OTE BEFORE broadband and Don would then post me the tape so I could hear it "properly"

I'd forgotten that

when I first used to tune into WFMU I had no way of listening, I'd just look at the website

then 2 years of buffering on expensive dialup...

the buffering. Yes!

back on topic, negativeland is yet another amazing thing of the universe that the great people of fmu land have brought into my life
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:18pm People Like Us:

we take so much for granted - high speed broadband changed so much
the fact that I'm here right now in fact!
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:19pm Rich in Washington:

For many years, had dial up at home and broadband wasn't available in my area and was so expensive, so listened to lots of internet radio and archives while working in the office.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/31/15 7:20pm JakeGould:

@PLU: High speed broadband on your desktop and in your pants! We have computers that you can stick in your pocket that can stream data faster than most average landline connections.

You're right, PLU, we take it for granted now.
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:21pm People Like Us:

yes, tapes of radio shows
I first heard WFMU on a cassette - Ken's Premium "The Happy Listener's Guide.." from the mid 90s
  Fri. 7/31/15 7:21pm vince:

yeah... who know what that wi-fi's doing to your loins!!
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:22pm People Like Us:

I was given the cassette in Berlin - a friend who'd been visiting his girlfriend who was a student in NY, and he'd heard the tape playing THROUGH THE WALL of a neighbour and went and knocked on their door
  Fri. 7/31/15 7:22pm vince:

I still have my Paster Dick cassette!
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:22pm Rich in Washington:

There's this weird ping-pong effect on Shaggs music. I have no idea if it's intentional but it's so maddening. Crazy!
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:23pm People Like Us:

yes it's wonky

I didn't get Capt. Beefheart, 'till I heard The Shaggs

I like the emphasis on the boom beat rather than the cha beat
so to speak

I used to tape internet radio while at work to listen to in my car and at home. I recently found a tape of streams of Weirdsville.
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:24pm ironybread:

Irwin Chiusid has been playing music by an Australian outsider musician, Waterfall Person, that does something very similar...she's broken all her electronic keyboards in very interesting ways
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:24pm Rich in Washington:

Weirdsville, one of the first RealPlayer radio stations I regularly listened to in 99 or so.
  Fri. 7/31/15 7:27pm vince:

You all might be interested to know, they actually brought "It's All IN Your Head FM" here.. to VEGAS!! What a night it was!
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:27pm ironybread:

I'm confident that the surviving members of Negativland will continue recording and touring as promised - from their live shows in the last few years, I know they've got a sweet agglomeration of new tunes/edit pieces that will kill you they're so good - "Like Cattle Act" and "Let's Melt the North Pole", to name just two
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:28pm Rich in Washington:

IAIYH is a pretty good show. Was there for Portland OR. Did you get blindfolds, Vince?
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:28pm ironybread:

...well, "Like Cattle Act" is technically a really old one, but they've never released it officially
  Fri. 7/31/15 7:29pm Mrs P:

This show is always wonderful.
  Fri. 7/31/15 7:29pm vince:

yup.... I was surprised to see the rest of the audience as 'into it' as I was
  Fri. 7/31/15 7:30pm vince:

unlike, when The Residents played here... a lot of people walked out...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/31/15 7:32pm chris:

this Tomita track is so Stereolab sounding, only more so, if that's possible
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:32pm People Like Us:

Yann Tomita is amazing

You know... I firmly believe there was a time when there were LESS Coke & Pepsi commercials on American TV... thanks to "Dispepsi'!!

For all of me, I much prefer the Haden versions of these songs now.

Just meditating on how that Percy Faith cut takes me back to my early childhood when disco infected EVERYTHING and was possibly the most embarrassing thing white people ever enjoyed at an ice show.

this Dim Dim track (and album) equally puts me in mind of WFMU, in the 2000's - makes me think of Charlie Lewis

and Petra Haden makes me think of Kenny G

...of course many of the 60s Psych Classics were done on 4-track - w/ studios & all tho' of course...but they have that in common w/ LoFi...
  Fri. 7/31/15 7:45pm vince:

Can't have WFMU, without YOU!
Avatar    Fri. 7/31/15 7:45pm Rich in Washington:

Kenny G makes me think of my earliest days listening to WFMU and when I thought Ken's show and Ken's last Ever Radio Extravaganza were done by the same Ken.

They're so different.
