Sunday morning coming up. Music for the revolution in my head: choogling punks; power pop, both skinny-tied and long-haired; soul shouters and girl groups; bubblegum and acid rock; global fuzz; weirdos and outsiders, and the Weirdos and the Outsiders; Archie Shepp and J. Geils. Plus, live bands.

Sundays 6 - 9am (EST) | On WFMU (Info) | 91.1, 90.1, 91.9 FM & wfmu.org

Crossroads is a Doug Sahm (Sir Douglas Quintet) compostion. Great choice!

Good morning, Nate. Where shall I set down this bundle of kindling?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/3/17 6:07am Nate K.:

@Howard, oh yeah, one of my all-time faves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/3/17 6:08am Nate K.:

Morning, everybody. Great live set coming up a little later in the show from Sparrow Steeple.

Beautiful tunes to start us off this morning, Nate. I understand Heron Oblivion were tremendous the other night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/3/17 6:17am Nate K.:

Thanks, Mark.

@Ricky, yes, I heard that. Haven't taken the plunge yet. You?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/3/17 6:19am Ricky:

Just finished Neil's tutorial. Looks like a amazing site.

Hello Nate, Good sounds to do the ironing to! Another grey day here, bit like a politicians' promises.
Avatar Sun. 12/3/17 6:21am Howard F:

@Ricky: I might have to check that out. A tutorial?! I love Neil Young.

Hiya, Nate, Burners. Feeling the heat this AM.

Raunchy? Damning with faint praise will get you nowhere ;-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/3/17 7:11am Nate K.:

@Sem, I wouldn't know. Frank is one of those guys that I just never got. I can dig some Mothers, but that's about it.

You know too many good people have died in a year when someone you are a fan of dies and it gets past you for months. RIP Jessi Zazu.

Good Morning everyone.
Jessi was a sucky loss for sure, so young.
I remember seeing those darlins at Maxwells in Hoboken.

@R2D2 HI, PL!!
Avatar    Sun. 12/3/17 7:25am ultradamno:

@medson I saw them in Indy at Radio Radio, Kelly was still with them (after the second album, I think). They held an impromptu dance contest. Great fun band.
  Sun. 12/3/17 7:28am Morgan:

morning Nate, everybody
  Sun. 12/3/17 7:30am kev:

morning Burners
Avatar    Sun. 12/3/17 7:30am Sem:

Nate, I didn't know what to make of the first half dozen albums, but they were intriguing, so I kept on buying.
Got started w/ Weasels, then went back for the 10 that preceded it, and kept listening for the next 13, winding up w/ Zoot Allures.
Maybe the inspired lyrics coupled by explorations of rhythms layered over musique concrète, his guitar improvisations, and ever-changing choice of playmates was just too much to ignore. Didn't get everything he was doing but the more I heard the more I wanted to follow along.
Plus, I liked a man w/ a serious long term soul patch before it became a thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/3/17 7:30am medson:

@ultradamno they were great
  Sun. 12/3/17 7:42am Morgan:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/3/17 7:52am Nate K.:

  Sun. 12/3/17 7:55am Your Ace From Exchange Place:

  Sun. 12/3/17 8:03am Morgan:

Im digging these guys too
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/3/17 8:10am Aaron Working In Newark:

Sounds great guys
     Sun. 12/3/17 8:12am Listener Robert:

Thanks for introducing us to Sparrow Steeple. I'm going to have to remember them in case I get a chance to go to a performance of theirs.

I also think the mic placement was interesting for some of the "foreground" sounds. My compliments to the engineer.
     Sun. 12/3/17 8:18am Listener Robert:

Of course a real steeple full of real sparrows is noisy, cacophonous. So, one of those silly, self-deprecating band names, I guess.
  Sun. 12/3/17 8:40am Morgan:

Im astounded at the live music coming out of fmu recently! lucky I can get it on the radio w better speakers
  Sun. 12/3/17 8:52am herb.nyc:

Just turned on stereo. And I hear a savage. I saw his show Friday night at Monty Hall. Really good, very understated. Except when the alto saxophone played
  Sun. 12/3/17 8:54am kev:

thx Nate, great show
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/3/17 8:56am Ricky:

Nice set. Thanks
     Sun. 12/3/17 8:56am Listener Robert:

I forgot, did someone last week post the name of this closing theme?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/3/17 8:57am medson:

Thanks Nate
  Sun. 12/3/17 8:57am Morgan:

thanks nate! happy sunday all
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/3/17 8:58am Ricky:
