Hey, Annie! You may not feel so thankful once the show starts....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 11:54am annie:

hehe, i'm looking forward to it...a slow day here in the neighborhood
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 11:58am listener james from westwood:

Basement! Best place to be on a fireworks-heavy day!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 11:59am Tony Coulter:

Heya, James! Very true -- that's where our cat will be cowering tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 12:02pm listener james from westwood:

Oof, this is such a bad time for a lot of pets. Humans too.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 12:03pm Tony Coulter:

Today's playlist pic is a detail from the front cover of the Uncle Sam record now proudly bursting forth....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 12:03pm annie:

dog biscuits and rescue remedy dripped onto them...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 12:03pm listener james from westwood:

Fresh back from Vietnam in 1968 or 69, my uncle, a Bronx resident, fled the fireworks-heavy streets of Castle Hill on the Fourth and did all-nighters on 42nd St's grindhouse circuit. Did so for years after.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 12:08pm Tony Coulter:

As may be obvious, today's show will consist entirely of private-press/small-label rock LPs that have been lurking in my basement.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 12:13pm Tony Coulter:

Even in Portland, it never seems to rain on the 4th of July. Bring on torrential rains, I say....
  Tue. 7/4/17 12:24pm Mark Williams:

Hi Tony and everyone. Got my swag yesterday, which was your premium. Not gotten through it yet, but the first third was tasty.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Mark! Glad you're liking it so far .. and, of course, thanks for pledging!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 12:33pm listener james from westwood:

Er, topical?
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 12:35pm Tony Coulter:

Sax man toots....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 12:36pm listener james from westwood:

This could've been a Cyndi Lauper song.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 12:44pm Tony Coulter:

Seem to have a bit of a frog in my throat....
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 12:45pm Tony Coulter:

Not to play favorites or anything, but this Heresy record will be graduating to my upstairs record collection.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 12:49pm Tony Coulter:

As will this Nexus. But I love all my records equally, even the deformed ones that must stay hidden in the basement.
  Tue. 7/4/17 12:50pm Dean:

This is not the Canadian Nexus with which I'm kinda familiar.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 12:51pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Dean -- nope, it's not them. It's this thing: www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 1:17pm glenn:

aranj.
  Tue. 7/4/17 1:18pm Dean:

That lead-in applause makes me wonder: do you have any stand-up comedy records in the basement?
  Tue. 7/4/17 1:18pm Dean:

Henny Youngman or Steven Wright wannabes?
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 1:19pm Tony Coulter:

Yes! I have a bunch of comedy records down there.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 1:19pm glenn:

this cracks me up. www.youtube.com...
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

The cover of this Offutt record is rather special: e.snmc.io...
  Tue. 7/4/17 1:20pm Dean:

One day you'll have to spin a track or two.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

Ahoy, Glenn. Next time I have an itch I'll wish I had that thing handy.....
  Tue. 7/4/17 1:21pm Dean:

Unintentional comedy, that cover.

Proto-Rush, this Ore.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 1:23pm Tony Coulter:

Ore's vocalist is also a bit Ian Anderson-esque in spots.
  Tue. 7/4/17 1:25pm Dean:

As was...was it the Deric Langton last set?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 1:26pm listener james from westwood:

Killer basement tracks so far!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 1:27pm Tony Coulter:

Yep, Langton -- agreed re Anderson....
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 1:27pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, James!!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 1:28pm Tony Coulter:

This song, from a Portland group, is about a tattooed man being an outcast because of all his tattoos -- which is *hardly* the case here these days....
  Tue. 7/4/17 1:30pm Dean:

Sand: the pinnacle of arena rock. (Spanish pun.)
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 1:33pm Doug Schulkind:

Greetings, Uncle Tony!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 1:34pm Tony Coulter:

Ahoy, Commander Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 1:39pm listener james from westwood:

Now I'm recalling the "Misfits of Science" series that hit the airwaves right around this release, featuring a just-after-the-"Dancing in the Dark"-video Courtney Cox.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 1:39pm Tony Coulter:

Interesting! Don't know that series....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 1:54pm listener james from westwood:

It was on for less than a season IIRC. A superhero series in all but name and spandex outfits.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:02pm Tony Coulter:

Up next ... an XTC cover!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:03pm Tony Coulter:

Up next, as in now.
  Tue. 7/4/17 2:15pm Carmichael:

Heya Holiday Tony!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:15pm Tony Coulter:

Same to yerz, Carmichael!
  Tue. 7/4/17 2:16pm Dean:

Nick Gilder allusion?
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:17pm Tony Coulter:

The allusionist strikes....
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:20pm Tony Coulter:

Oddly, this Speed Limit song reminds me of Snakefinger....
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:24pm Tony Coulter:

I guess the update of this Rantz song would have to substitute smartphone for TV.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:25pm Tony Coulter:

To think TVs once ruled the world....
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:29pm Tony Coulter:

Wish I could show you the band photo from this Session LP.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 2:30pm northguineahills:

I remember Misfits of Science. I watched every episode when it came out. I was a yungun back then...
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:31pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, hey, NGH!
  Tue. 7/4/17 2:33pm Dean:

There's an image out there, a thumbnail with a bad URL, unable to shorten.
  Tue. 7/4/17 2:34pm Dean:

B&W, a triangle with a member wearing a hat at the apex, the vocalist at the middle of the base flanked by the other two caballeros?
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:35pm Tony Coulter:

Yep, that's the pic.

"The Bad URLs" would make a good band name....
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:38pm Tony Coulter:

And here they are again. Their blond vocalist looks like a miniature Mae West....
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:38pm Soul Captain:

The Basement Blues was exceptional to this point
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:39pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Soul Captain!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:40pm Tony Coulter:

The track on now was written for some kind of cheapo horror movie (straight-to-video, I imagine).
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:43pm Tony Coulter:

"All I want to do is utter some evil lore"
  Tue. 7/4/17 2:44pm Dean:

Eeyore - Ode to Pooh
  Tue. 7/4/17 2:51pm Dean:

If Robert Plant's less talented brother had joined Starcastle...

progadelic synth solosssss
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:51pm Tony Coulter:

Cheyenne!! Heya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 2:52pm northguineahills:

Harpo is strangely alluring....
  Tue. 7/4/17 2:52pm Carmichael:

Daddy loves his prog!
Avatar    Tue. 7/4/17 2:52pm Cheyenne:

Howdee Tony! Gettin some surfical tuneage lined up for today's Listenin' Party! HAPPY AMERICA DAY or whatever!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:53pm Tony Coulter:

Yep -- don't miss Cheyenne's show, people. It's coming up in 7 minutes, right here: wfmu.org...
Avatar    Tue. 7/4/17 2:54pm Cheyenne:

This music makes me wanna ride a motorcycle thru space!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 2:56pm listener james from westwood:

That was some fun stuff! Thanks, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:58pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, James! Glad you enjoyed yourself....
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 2:59pm Tony Coulter:

And thanks for showing up, everyone. See you next week!
