Hello Bill, all bets off in the how wet can you get digging stakes.

Back to the last show. The Equals were advertised and played incessently on the pirate station Radio London back around '68. They were on President Records. Three black, two white men, modern for the time.

Brian, yes, my latest obsession, also boasting the talents of one Eddy Grant. Who knew? Things just keep on slipping through.

Good afternoon Bill and listeners. Sounds like the marching band that was playing Christmas carols and horrible French pop hits from the 70s called it a day just in time for your show

Whew, I'm ready too! Beautiful day, lovely plumage....

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 12:14pm fred:

@Brian: Yep, as usual. I don't like going out on weekends. First, that would mean an added trip to Paris (close to one hour). Second, there are way more days during the workweek than the weekend

Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 12:29pm Bill Mac:

He's blushing I can hear it from here
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 12:30pm fred:

That track reminds me of a movie that a former girlfriend made me watch, though I can't place it. Probably dance related, as she was my gateway to dance
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 12:30pm Brian in UK:

Bill, the typeset is hard work on the aforementioned album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 12:33pm Brian in UK:

I got mine from Woolworths. It's still going strong.

Paradisiacal: I suppose six syllables are necessary in describing what is, I think, a superlative experience? Or just wanker poseurs?
Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 12:39pm Sem:

I note that The Rose Garden began its musical career as The Blokes.
The Sixties, man, put us all through so many changes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 12:42pm Stanley:

From The Blokes to The Rose Garden and back again, no doubt.

Not a big fan of parody but when they laid it down, it stayed there.
Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 12:47pm Sem:

Forgot the Thamesmen thing. Heh.
Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 12:48pm Bill Mac:

I caught that!

This CD has been laying around here for over a month...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 1:01pm Brian in UK:

These comps nowadays are real eyeopeners, Hungary, Viet Nam etc. Fascinating music that was recorded despite trying times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 1:02pm Stanley:

Your DJ speaks
Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 1:04pm Sem:

Found this fascinating "In the late 1950s Kimbrough began playing the guitar in his own style, using mid-tempo rhythms and a steady drone played with his thumb on the bass strings. This style would later be cited as a prime example of hill country blues. His music is characterized by the tricky syncopation between his droning bass strings and his midrange melodies. His soloing style has been described as modal and features languorous runs in the middle and upper registers. The result was described by music critic Robert Palmer as "hypnotic". VIA Wikithingy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 1:05pm Brian in UK:

I still enjoy playing records, but the advent of the CD opened up our ears to so much more via comps.

Stanley and Brian, a few years ago my australian girlfriend did manage to teach me how to say "chocolate", but apparently i never did learn how to say "hot" & "scone". i tried.
- i also apparently never tasted one. she said what they call scones in the states are not even close.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 1:24pm Stanley:

You betcha, Sem. Only the best off-licence in the country. Also in the line up this evening is a session pale from Garage in Barcelona and to finish off, a bottle of Woot - a barrel aged 12 per cent stout from Stone in San Diago. It's a Saturday night in here at Casa Stanley.

@BiUK: I was just thinking of that this morning as I was hauling bottle of water to the water cooler. Everything has been tip top knock wood

Scones work well when made with Buttermilk. Plus homemade Strawberry jam, for me, cream optional. It all gets back to food in the end.
Oh, and booze. Polish vodka over here.

Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 2:02pm Sem:

Stanley, you are a wonder w/ the grace notes of life. My thanks.

Brian, I checked the website you mentioned ^. Saw this:
The strongest vodka we have ever come across, Balkan 176 comes in a bottle with 13 different health warnings (including one in Braille), mainly because it's at 88% abv. It is produced in Serbia, and is triple distilled and essentially shouldn't be drunk neat, sniffed, held or even owned.

Behind a wall, anyway.

Hey, Bill!

Oh, and what does "too poppy" mean? I've long thought that the main problem with WFMU is a tendency to play too much rock, as if there's some assumption that should be the core musical form on the air.

Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 2:32pm Sem:

I feeling is that Cape Breton moonshine run through the radiator of a junked 1971 Ford F-150 is the end of the line. The residual anti-ifreeze is actually the best part of that drink, I have heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:36pm fred:

@Sem: a former co-worker served in the Red Army in Kazakhstan. He told me that on the first day the instruction focused on what kind of anti-freeze was safe to drink, and also a reminder than vodka kept outdoors could freeze your guts and kill you if it wasn't allowed to get warmer indoors first

Hi Fran. Doing a Zarquon, eh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:50pm Brian in UK:

Bill, wonderful selections as ever. What does anyone know that a DJ knows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:51pm Fran:

Hi Stanley - haha! A League of Gentlemen 'have I missed the cakes?' moment!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:51pm fred:

@Sem: another Red Army story is that when he was later posted on the western border, the sophisticated radar stations had been "modified" so that officers could get porn from Western countries. He thought that was how a guy landed in the red square, but he didn't know for sure
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:51pm Fran:

Hi Brian!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:52pm Stanley:

Fran: indeed, haha
Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 2:52pm Sem:

You are of course compiling these stories, right, fred?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:53pm Brian in UK:

Fran we are now in Shropshire, bit of a gig desert. If you are passing through do drop in.
Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 2:53pm Bill Mac:

@biUK: I just pick em for the most part - you guys know a lot more about what I'm playing sometimes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:54pm fred:

@Sem: of course not, thousands have lived them, I didn't
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:55pm Brian in UK:

Bill I would say that is disingenous, if I could spell it!!
Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 2:56pm Bill Mac:

@Fred Still, interesting stuff to know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:56pm Fran:

Hi Brian

Thanks for the update and if I can I will! I had the dubious pleasure of a day in Telford earlier in the year!
Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 2:58pm Sem:

Well, hope to catch all Zzzzzzeroheds at the next assembly Christmas Eve. Provocative mistletoe arrangements, SVP. Bye for now, all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:58pm Fran:

Hoping to tune in for at least more than 16 minutes of Christmas Eve's show Bill!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:58pm Brian in UK:

Never understood this line, kind of got 'give a man his freedom and he will not know what to do with it' though.

Killing it, Bill. Bruised Orange is a peach.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:59pm fred:

Thanks Bill, it's always a treat to get to hear your show
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:59pm Stanley:

The best three hours I've spent in a long time. Thanks Bill for the very entertaining sounds and to all at the café for the top notch repartee. Looking forward to Christmas Eve. See you all then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 2:59pm Fran:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 3:00pm Brian in UK:

Fran odd how Shrewsbury and Telford are but a few miles apart but five centuries in reality.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 3:00pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Just about down to Zzzzzzero. See you next time, Bill.
Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 3:00pm Bill Mac:

So true Brian.

Respect to Maxine for the visuals.

Take care everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 3:02pm Jeff Moore:

@Bill: I well know that sensitivity from my you-can-still-count-them-on-one-hand number of forays behind the mic.

You mean, it's still there after decades? Actually, however bad news it may be for one's nerves as a DJ, it'd be worse if people stopped caring so much.

Congratulations, Bill, you nervous wreck, you're still not phoning it in!
Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 3:03pm Bill Mac:

You are the best Mr Moore!!!!!
Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 3:04pm Bill Mac:

.... and yes it is. The only thing I struggle with here is the pilgrimage to JC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 3:05pm Jeff Moore:

Hell of a schlep. I'm glad you're willing to put up with that PITA drive for all of us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 3:06pm Brian in UK:

Bill, how many miles it is? Trying to put in context to over here.
Avatar Sat. 12/8/18 3:07pm Bill Mac:

eh for me too... it's 85 miles give or take. about 90 minutes one way
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/8/18 3:09pm Brian in UK:
