just sent you a thank-you immensely email! i knew eventually it coma back around on the gee-tar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/8/16 9:25am Marcel M:

@Bob: I have wondered that myself so I looked it up just now, actualy doesn't have to do with his playing style: "The English audiences would wait out the delay by doing what is called a "slow handclap". Clapton's nickname of 'Slowhand' came from Giorgio Gomelsky, a pun on the slow handclapping that ensued when Clapton stopped playing while he replaced a string."
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 8/8/16 9:25am bobdoesthings:

@sphere - ohhh, you might be right on that. that explains it.. that Layla riff is kinda explosive

Mrs. Druid is from nearby Livonia, MI -- Thus I've had reason to discover the outstanding vinyl shopping in Ann Arbor...

I'll post some pics on the playlist after the show. As usual, I forgot to upload them.

Ann Arbor is just a cool university town in many respects!

It's just not the same without the Del Rio, though ...

this really sounds like my lowry holiday with magic genie. my new axe
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/8/16 11:28am Davis:

but if it is one, how did he get it in the studio? weighs a ton and is massive

@Davis: We have one that a generous listener donated.

thats great Joe, cool donation
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 8/8/16 11:31am fred:

@Wild Neil: it's analog, so I guess writing your own would be feasible. But you would need the right equipment, I don't think a regular lathe would do the job, even with the right disc material

Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 11:36am Wild Neil:

@Fred-my understanding is that the waveform is printed on a clear acetate or mylar...it could be drafted carefully AutoCAD or even by hand and then printed on acetate in a regular printer if it can handle acetate....
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 8/8/16 11:36am Joe McG:

Many thanks to Doug for coming and playing on the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/8/16 11:37am steve:

arent Optigan discs just clear plastic discs with patterns etched onto them in black, passing or blocking light? i dont seen any reason you couldnt make your own with the right tools...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/8/16 11:37am Davis:

it was great
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 8/8/16 11:37am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Neil: Yep -- I think the whole glitching thing might be as simple as "editing" the concentric circular bands with marks via sharpie/permanent marker... I never had the nerve since mine was pre-internet & didn't know if I'd ever find more discs..
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 8/8/16 11:39am Rev. Turnip Druid:

thus, loading a disc upside down would make a reverse-gate effect, playing sounds backwards, etc...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 8/8/16 11:39am Joe McG:

Look for the session on the FMA in a couple of weeks.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 8/8/16 11:39am Brian in UK:

I remember Richards Youngs playing a stunning set on the Lowery.
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 11:39am Wild Neil:

@Steve-the plastic I saw was maybe .005" (5 mils) and it was merely printed.
I'm willing to bet there are performance limitations on waveforms that are too "Radical" to output...which would be interesting to hear! Interesting sysesthesic problem! I wonder if you could load DaVinci drawings and play them? Probably only one wave at a time permitted.....
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 11:41am Whosondephone:

God this sounds so good at the shop.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 8/8/16 11:41am Joe McG:

@Brian: Yes, that session is a gem!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 8/8/16 11:41am fred:

@Neil: I doubt a regular printer would handle acetate. A sharpie would do the job for glitches but not much control there. And I thought about that (playing pictures) too. Probably would sound like a big mess, but it could be interesting. Many people do that with digital pics after all
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 11:43am Wild Neil:

@Fred-you can....see this...www.staples.com...

@BUK: Are you growing sweet corn, at all? We're utterly awash in corn and tomatoes. Dreamy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 8/8/16 11:47am fred:

@Neil: nice... I guess you could then affix that to a clear disc so that it can be put into the Optigan...

Minami Deutsch seems to have a Europe tour coming next month! Unlikely to stop in my backwater area though
@mary: they're Japanese
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 8/8/16 11:52am Joe McG:

@mary: Certainly inspired by him! A guy named Kyotaro Miula is behind it. They're Japanese.
  Mon. 8/8/16 11:52am mary:

thanks... I shall search
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 8/8/16 11:53am Brian in UK:

@βrian Yes we are but were very late planting so a poor crop is likely. No a big fan of corn myself but the chooks will vacuum it up.

Joe, so good to see you at the lake. Enjoyed hearing your laughter ring out repeatedly during the screening of Patrick Swayze's "Roadhouse." Great show today!
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 11:54am Wild Neil:

TWO clicky stars in a row! Silver Apples and Minami Deutsch...Cool!
@Fred-I did not know it had a hard plastic disk, my bad....memory is faulty sometimes...but I feel a LOT better taking B12 supplements now, no pains and aches not as tired....
