"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.)

Who Knew? "Roger the Rocket Ship" is from 1970? The updated lyrics are good. (Alvarious B.) and all but glad John Allen opened my eyes.

Yay, rah! It's Mueller time! I like these rocket ship experiences, too.

Replying to @SethAbramson

35/ Remember that Trump *not only* tried to get Comey to drop the case against Flynn—suggesting he was scared about what that case could uncover—he *also* tried to convince his aides to let him *re-hire* Flynn after his firing and *then* called Flynn to tell him to "stay strong."

the abramson thread is making me dizzy with anticipation
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/1/17 11:10am Passaic River Blues:

@steveo: that thread is a bright ray of light. Everything has been so awful for so long--may we yet be delivered from Remedial Ed Nixon!

I tuned in for the first time at 10:00- a listener for round about 40 yrs, but with DJs leaving or worse, my listening has been reduced to the 1&3 slots on Wednesday and 1 slot on Thursday and several streams. I thought today was THURSDAY and found to my surprise your program! How long have you been here? Great program!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/1/17 11:12am northguineahills:

Elodie!

Oh, you were talking about the Seth Abramson tweet thread. I was busy working and only heard thread.

ABC reporting Flynn is prepared to testify Trump instructed him to make contact with Russia during the campaign.

In sports news, the World Cup draw is happening. What a busy day! If that idiot tax bill dies in flames, it's a heck of a Friday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/1/17 12:00pm Polyus:

People at the courthouse chanting "Lock Him Up!" at Flynn. Which is exactly what I always hoped would happen.

thanks john
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/1/17 12:01pm Passaic River Blues:

@Ken à Hyde Park: the fact the only thing standing between the bullshit tax bill's passage is Bob Fucking Corker leaves me less than confident, but I'm still hoping.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/1/17 12:02pm Passaic River Blues:

@Polyus: that is awesome!

@JA: thank you, sir!
