Good afternoon.

Hiya, James and βrian ... and greetings, all!

Today's mystery LP-under-the-cassettes is pretty hard to guess, because so little is showing. Still, can anyone ID it?
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 12:03pm Yvang:

Hello James, Brian, Tony!

Heya, Yvang!

hiya Tony, hi everyone! quite an interesting DDDJJJ666 fill in last week! (tony, you practical joker you ... ha ha.)

The mystery of the radio stream surpasses us at times.

LP: Lawrence Welk "getting under your skin" - his avant-garde jazz outing?
  Tue. 7/3/18 12:05pm Dean:

Bay City Rollers? RIP, Alan Longmuir.

@Tony, My son has been in PDX for a couple weeks visiting cousins, with another week and a half to go. If you bump into him, tell him to behave.

Hey, hey, JtotheK and Dean!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 12:11pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Someone was setting off firecrackers outside my house yesterday -- your son, maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 12:16pm Tony Coulter:

No one will be able to guess today's mystery record, so I might as well let the skeleton out of the bag right now: It's Peter Hope & The Jonathan S. Podmore Method's "Dry Hip Rotation"

The little scamp! I told him to wait until the Fourth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 12:31pm Tony Coulter:

Ahhh -- from the ease-of-accuplaylisting point of view, this is my kind of tape -- with nice long pauses between tracks.
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 12:38pm Yvang:

And it's a great one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 12:40pm Tony Coulter:

Yes, it is! His LP is really good too -- need to find a copy www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 12:42pm northguineahills:

I can whistle to this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 12:43pm Tony Coulter:

Ahoy, NGH!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 12:51pm northguineahills:

Just list all of the artists all at once....
Avatar Tue. 7/3/18 12:51pm chocolate monk:

yubbie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 12:51pm Tony Coulter:

Did just that -- though it looks a bit wacky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 12:52pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, hey, hello, chocolate monk!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 12:56pm northguineahills:

I had no idea Touch Recs was around in '83....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 12:57pm Tony Coulter:

This was one of their first few releases.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 12:58pm Tony Coulter:

OK: screw listing the track titles too, in one big comment -- it messes up the playlist too much. See here for track titles: www.discogs.com...

My garage has gone cattywampus. Anybody had experience persuading a small building back to plumb? I'm guessing I'm going to use cables and some sort of winch.
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 1:07pm βrian:

(I mean, cuz this is what folks typically do for the Independence Day holiday, right?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 1:07pm northguineahills:

βrian: I suggest watching this instructional video - www.imdb.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 1:30pm Tony Coulter:

To me, this comp really feels more like one long mood piece than it does a bunch of discrete pieces. Still, I guess it's not *that* hard to ID the separate artists -- sorry for wimping out on you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 1:32pm Tony Coulter:

This is obviously Test Department!
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 1:34pm geezerette:

ooh, sinister whale songs and psychopathic breathing, elevated blood pressure; what's not to love?! :)
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 1:35pm geezerette:

Howdy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

Hey there, geezerette! Nice to see you here.....
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 1:36pm geezerette:

thanks, Tony!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 1:40pm northguineahills:

Off to lunch, thanks Tony!

Happy chomping, NGH!

KITTEN BUTTS!!!!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 1:58pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Ike!

No! No! Don't kick the kitten!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:05pm Tony Coulter:

Talking of four-legged critters, two possums seem intent on moving into our kitchen. Not just to eat, but to hang out. I had never been directly exposed to possums before moving out west -- have to say they seem oddly hapless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:07pm Tony Coulter:

For one thing, they seem to be very near-sighted and maybe a little hard of hearing too.
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 2:07pm geezerette:

Don't sublet to possums Tony, they're deadbeats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:08pm Tony Coulter:

Ha!
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 2:10pm geezerette:

Aren't you amazed by how big they are? I am! Amazed, I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:11pm Tony Coulter:

Yeah, I am -- though one of our two is much bigger than the other ... and probably pretty old, in possum terms.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:12pm Tony Coulter:

He/she is very grizzled and a bit hobbled seeming.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:13pm Tony Coulter:

What's amazing to me is how mild-mannered they are despite all those fearsome teeth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:18pm chris:

been enjoying these tapes, Tony.

one really nice thing about possums: they eat lots and lots of ticks!
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 2:19pm geezerette:

Yeah, those teeth are like daggers but all they want to do is roll up into a ball and pretend to be invisible. Seriously though, they are wild animals and don't make good house pets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:20pm Tony Coulter:

Hey there, Chris! Glad you're listening and enjoying!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:21pm Tony Coulter:

@ geezerette: Don't worry: we're not planning to adopt them. Still, I am enjoying their almost nightly visits to our kitchen.
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 2:26pm geezerette:

Chris, good point!

Tony, it's really incredible how much wildlife lives in the city with us. There are deer in the canyons near the coast, and hot tubbing bears who make great video on slow news days. We're the interlopers.
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 2:27pm geezerette:

"Yellow Fields" is beautiful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:34pm ɨkɛ:

I'd never kick a kitten! And I'm too tired to kick anything. My cat, who thinks she's still a kitten, wanted to play fetch at 5 a.m. This involves batting a little hedgehog toy around and flipping it up into the air. On top of me. And the AC is in the main room, so I couldn't close the door and keep her out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:37pm JtotheK:

this colin potter tape is quite mellow-mood inspiring.
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 2:39pm geezerette:

Haha! I used to come home from work at 1am and find my cat wide awake and eager to play hall soccer. I miss that, she was a great kitty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:39pm Webhamster Henry:

I like this - The orchestration is very familiar to me, as a bedroom cassette master.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:40pm Tony Coulter:

Webhamster! Heya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:41pm Webhamster Henry:

I keep forgetting to build a cable so I can dub these Tape Hiss Shows onto cassettes. #killingmusicsince1982
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 2:44pm geezerette:

Have to leave but still listening. Thanks, Tony! Colin Potter is wonderful and new to me.
Happy 4th everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:45pm chris:

bye, geezerette! happy 4th to you as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:45pm Tony Coulter:

Ciao, geezerette!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:53pm Cheyenne:

Woo, my brain is being arpeggiated hard right now. Can't say I'm not enjoying it though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:54pm Tony Coulter:

Cheyenne! Hey ho heya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:54pm chris:

yeah, this is nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:54pm Tony Coulter:

Sort of additive minimalism
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:56pm chris:

thanks, Tony! take care, all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:56pm northguineahills:

made it back for the end!
Avatar    Tue. 7/3/18 2:57pm Yvang:

great tapes today, thanks Tony!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:57pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, everybody! See you next week -- but stay tuned for the hidden bonus track after my out-theme. Cheyenne will be up right after that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/3/18 2:58pm JtotheK:

enjoyed the tapes - thanks tony! cheers everyone.
