"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

John, thanks for this wonderful show on a hot summer day at work! You're keeping me going! Cheers from Prishtina, Kosova!
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 10:24am The Oscar:

Popping in to say yay HSR! I worked in a used record store in Cambridge for many years, and they were always my go-to when someone asked for something local they hadn't heard before. Such an underrated band.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 10:26am Joe McG:

Cool clip of HSR live: vimeo.com...
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 10:34am The Oscar:

@Joe So cool! I caught them at a reunion gig a few years back, and they were great-- the response was enthusiastic enough that they actually had to move it into a bigger venue. I always describe them as if the B-52s sounded like Mission of Burma.
  Thu. 6/29/17 10:36am Cooh John:

delivering mail that says John Allen right now.
  Thu. 6/29/17 10:38am jt:

As skips go, that was a good one!
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 11:27am Mister Dobalina:

That was one of the most naturally occurring and meant to be skips I've ever heard on here!
  Thu. 6/29/17 11:32am lisa:

Coz! Haven't heard that one on the radio in...maybe in forever! Thanks for playing it.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 11:35am John Allen:

i once had a phone call w/ coz, i was considering putting out a record for him. he was sorta giggling a lot during the call and it scared me off
  Thu. 6/29/17 11:37am lisa:

Ha! He's an eccentric one for sure. But I loved his music, particularly his recorded (on cassette) output.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 11:39am John Allen:

yeah, he just came up in my mind index. good to see you checking in lisa
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 6/29/17 12:01pm Passaic River Blues:
