Dig it.

I'm so excited I have a radio in my home! I just have to fix the cable that is spewing out noise. Reception is fair though.
  Mon. 12/5/16 12:30am PMD:

Beautiful music
Avatar Mon. 12/5/16 12:30am Whosondephone:

And a new favorite program!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/5/16 12:33am Jeff Conklin:

Hello, new people!

@whosondephone: Don't you love messing with the antenna until you geta good signal??
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/5/16 12:34am geezerette:

Feel like I'm staring at crystals. That's actually a good thing. :)
  Mon. 12/5/16 12:34am Mario:

Good morning, Jeff and everyone. Enjoying the show from the beggining...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/5/16 12:36am Jeff Conklin:

Thank you, Ike and PMD.

Hello, Mario.

Anyone recognize this tune yet?
  Mon. 12/5/16 12:42am rw:

This tune sounded a little familiar to me for a second but then I lost it. Now I'm curious!
  Mon. 12/5/16 12:43am Mario:

It sounds like a traditional folk, but cant remember the name...
Avatar Mon. 12/5/16 12:44am Whosondephone:

@jeff Conklin: Unfortunately the ground going to the cable system is not connected. Doesn't matter where the antenna is facing.

It was very nice tweaking the boom box antenna. It's been almost a decade.
Avatar Mon. 12/5/16 12:47am Hagbard Celine:

sounding like pigpen era grateful dead to me!
  Mon. 12/5/16 12:48am rw:

Now I want to say the melody is a Robert Fripp loop riff... or maybe Steve Reich... Probably way out of the ballpark.
  Mon. 12/5/16 12:49am Mario:

And a bit Ethiopia by Bill Laswell
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/5/16 12:49am Jeff Conklin:

Hagbard got it.

It's the main melody from the Dead's cover of Bobby Blue Bland's 'Turn on Your Lovelight"
  Mon. 12/5/16 12:50am rw:

Hagbard Celine! Nice!
Avatar Mon. 12/5/16 12:51am Hagbard Celine:

turn on your love light. dont know who wrote it. but this song says pigpen
  Mon. 12/5/16 12:52am Mark r:

I think Bobby "Blue" Bland wrote it. Or at least recorded it.
Avatar Mon. 12/5/16 12:53am Hagbard Celine:

thx rw. when more of these melodies came in, i could hear it. and the name helped give it away.
  Mon. 12/5/16 12:53am Mario:

  Mon. 12/5/16 12:56am katharsis:

its been on for a while. its somewhat absurd. yet...
Avatar Mon. 12/5/16 12:57am Hagbard Celine:

i wonder are a lot of tuluum shimmering's dozens of releases based on a similar premise? all i know about this artist is you played something a few weeks ago that i liked as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/5/16 1:01am Scraps:

shoot, missed Popol Vuh.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/5/16 1:02am Scraps:

oh man. i'm really, really sorry.
  Mon. 12/5/16 1:05am bbb:

Well said Jeff. Thank you for the healing music. Very tragic...
  Mon. 12/5/16 1:06am Mario:

Sad news.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/5/16 1:07am Scraps:

i copyedited a book about the Providence (? I forget so much these days) fire, 100 people, music fans, died for things that could have been prevented.... it was horrible.
  Mon. 12/5/16 1:07am Brent.:

Thanks, Jeff. Needed this. Beautiful tribute.
  Mon. 12/5/16 1:07am rw:

Nice tribute JC. Thank you for that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/5/16 1:08am Scraps:

the Station fire, Great White concert
  Mon. 12/5/16 1:11am Mark r:

Digging this Swedish psychedelia. It seems that every country had its own psychedelic scene, sometimes years after ours. But time is an illusion, and great lysergic minds think alike!
Avatar Mon. 12/5/16 1:16am Hagbard Celine:

So killer good! Never heard Kvartetten.
  Mon. 12/5/16 1:19am rw:

Yeah, I was reading about the Oakland tragedy this morning and thinking how many times I've been to spaces just like that. Often for shows. Very sad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/5/16 1:20am Scraps:

i hope it wasn't pyrotechnics again
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/5/16 1:21am Scraps:

i just was reading about the Station fire... I had to stop
  Mon. 12/5/16 1:23am Mario:

Great BBiB release again! Hope we will work together soon with us, your spanish mates!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 12/5/16 1:24am fleep:

"Gas-powered generators were used to run small space heaters, and propane tanks placed indoor by the exits fueled other heaters" at the space in Oakland.
  Mon. 12/5/16 1:25am Brent.:

This is the greatest Doobie Bros. outtake you've ever played! ;)
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/5/16 1:26am Jeff Conklin:


There is plenty of time to talk about the mechanics of the tragedy but now is not it. Thank you.
  Mon. 12/5/16 1:27am Brent.:

Srsly. Just the beginning. Totally early Doobies. Then it became something else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/5/16 1:28am Scraps:

Sorry, he was answering my question, I think. I'm sorry, Jeff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 12/5/16 1:28am fleep:

I was responding to Scraps. You may delete the remark. I am as upset as anyone.
  Mon. 12/5/16 1:29am ice in Bklyn:

Wish I could post a photo of my Marantz tuned to this
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/5/16 1:31am Jeff Conklin:

@Brent: HA!

@Fleep: Sorry, man. I'm uptight tonight. Apologies.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/5/16 1:32am Jeff Conklin:

@Ice: imgur.com Let's see! And get the speakers in there!
  Mon. 12/5/16 1:32am ice in Bklyn:

Also, just jumped on comment board. I too am feeling devastated by it. Thank you for your voice, Jeff, others..
  Mon. 12/5/16 1:36am Mark r:

This whole set is really cooking.

  Mon. 12/5/16 2:02am ice in Bklyn:

Thank you Sharon, I worked with not not fun once.
I swear I haven't clicked a single huffpost article in over a year, but this one made me do it:
  Mon. 12/5/16 2:04am ice in Bklyn:

Not worried about the neighbors, I'm in my shop, we make noise. I keep turning this show up up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/5/16 2:16am Scraps:

if you're serious about checking out the Doobie Brothers, the album The Captain and Me is worth checking. (It has "Long Train Running" and "China Grove")
