"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.)

is "All I have to Do is Dream" about masturbation?
  Fri. 4/20/18 9:13am Scott in Tokyo:

I love this song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/20/18 9:15am Wild Neil||Peace All:

This M Kat Ensemble is pretty heavy jazz. Clickety click!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/20/18 9:16am John Allen:

steveo, i always appreciate your input, but what KIND of masturbation?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/20/18 9:16am WFMU listener WADE:

Some days JA's opening track fills me with dread and anxiety. And then the rest of the show happens. I'm in a cold sweat, pacing back and forth by 11.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/20/18 9:17am Lixiviated Life:

wait... there's different kinds?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/20/18 9:17am Wild Neil||Peace All:

@JA-I can answer that. Solo! Am I right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/20/18 9:19am Wild Neil||Peace All:

A lot of doom and anxiety in this song. Wow. All the animals are like whining and crying and scared now (don't ever play this for horses or in a zoo. Horses like country music but NOT classic rock, I heard there was a study. )
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/20/18 9:19am John Allen:

WRONG! masterbation for ensemble
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/20/18 9:20am steveo:

I can find some support for my thesis in the literature (where "the literature" = the internet). It's about a guy who "thinks" about his gal whenever he wants her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/20/18 9:22am steveo:

(Or maybe the object of his affection is not a gal, I guess it's not mentioned, and it's not really relevant.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/20/18 9:26am Lixiviated Life:

... different kinds...
who knew?
... could be I've been doing it wrong.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/20/18 9:28am jj.:

wow, a dead cover i don't know. happy 4/20, JA!
  Fri. 4/20/18 9:30am tom from Glasgow:

this whole set has been insane, in the good way

Snow flurries in Cambria, NY today. Predicted.

Never heard Mike Dilloway. I have tons of material from his brother.

Angelic piece of Rhodes piano.

@NGC-better get your light jacket ready. It's almost room temperature!

Amen Dunes... Jason "Malletman" Taylor......Whetzel - Transitions like this are clandestine, dangerous for radio waves. Happy i am tuned in.

This music is complementing my whisky selection nicely!

Dirty Leeds!

Indeed, Sacred Songs is a great record.

Yacht Rock is still one of the best things to ever grace the internet.

Thanks for Mr. Hall

This sounds like Hitchcock's The Birds.

The movie with no music in.
  Fri. 4/20/18 10:31am Doobois:

Love Patton. This one is especially grand.

Pearls Before Swine always sounds good.
Avatar Fri. 4/20/18 10:37am themutante:

My brain feels like butter listening to this. So gud!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/20/18 10:38am Chris from DC:

Just in time for Pearls Before Swine
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/20/18 10:48am Jeff Moore:

Is it terribly shallow of me that I find it pretty much impossible to enjoy a song in which someone sings "between you and I"?

I don't think so. It's like fingernails on the chalkboard of my soul.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/20/18 10:50am Passaic River Blues:

Here comes the Avalanches break. I could probably listen to "Vintage Violence" and "Church of Anthrax" on endless repeat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/20/18 10:52am Rich from Bay Ridge:

Was in a meeting and am devastated to learn that I missed that song from Hall and Fripp! Love those mid-song Frippertronics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/20/18 10:53am John Allen:

jeff, sounds like intimacy problems in the 3rd person
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/20/18 10:53am melinda:

@Jeff I understand.
Avatar Fri. 4/20/18 10:54am themutante:

They can't be called problems if you have nothing to do with them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/20/18 10:57am melinda:

I often don't fully register lyrics so that one slid past me, but hearing it spoken in conversation does grate.
Avatar Fri. 4/20/18 10:58am themutante:

I make a point of not looking up the lyrics to songs I love.
Avatar Fri. 4/20/18 11:00am themutante:

I prefer a mumbled, incoherent mess of a message.
Avatar Fri. 4/20/18 11:01am themutante:

Robert Rental is from the town next to mine.
Avatar Fri. 4/20/18 11:03am themutante:

Love his early electronics with Thomas Leer.

Hi John, great show!

Avatar Fri. 4/20/18 11:25am themutante:

Close your eyes, people. What a trip!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/20/18 11:27am MD:

Ahoy Hoy Freeform People!
Avatar Fri. 4/20/18 11:33am themutante:

This track reminds me of Beck's Lost Cause.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/20/18 11:34am Polyus:

Hey John, do you by chance have the new Sarah Davachi record? The mellow shift in direction made me remember it was out.
Avatar Fri. 4/20/18 11:40am themutante:

The sound of death, a pleasant death.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/20/18 11:42am joe mulligan:

I am loving this new wave of electronic ambient women musicians. Sarah Davachi at the Issue Project Room in January was a great show

Lovely set of tunes this morning, JA. Nice lead-in to the Bryce sonics.
Avatar Fri. 4/20/18 11:51am themutante:

I celebrated that by throwing myself back in my chair away from the keyboard saying "I'm Sandra Bullock!"
Avatar Fri. 4/20/18 11:55am themutante:

Feel like Flaeetwood Mac's The Chain is going to drop.

Nice spelling asshole @themutante

Speaking of Western MA, you familiar with Flaming Dragons of Middle Earth?! My friend says they're the greatest Western MA band of all time! Idk. Random comment.
