Right now I'm streaming you thru the innertubes but 91.9 in areas like Suffern, Chestnut Ridge, Nyack, and other areas of Rockland County the signal is notoriously bad so maybe the 91.9 transmitter is aimed up this direction? I'll get back to ya on this next week after I drive around up here more...I just moved...thanks as always for the best station on the planet!!

Back when I ran the eBay store for a local record shop we once got a huge load of Turkish and Armenian 78s. Fascinating stuff, but they took foreverrrrr to transcribe, let alone research.

The 90.1 transmitter is in Mount Hope which is near Middletown NY and 90.1 reaches as far north as New Paltz and parts of Poughkeepsie, though once I got it in Sheffield, MA, on the Appalachian Trail! 91.9 is just a little one in Harriman State Park.

Also in my record store days, whenever someone would proclaim that they never "got" the Beatles (which was fairly often), my standard response was: If you want to understand why they were huge then, watch A Hard Day's Night. If you want to understand why they're huge now, listen to The White Album.

The reindeer cheese is a bit gamy; also, that's quite a logical leap, ngh!

I remember a friend getting the White Album for Christmas '69. It was quite a handful but shows there was still so many ideas flying around.
The idea of a double album may not be the Beatles greatest legacy. Saying that most CDs are double album length nowadays. 44' 53" is long enough for most listeners.

Has anyone done a film on Ringo quitting The Beatles when the White Album was being recorded? Between August 22, 1968 and September 4, 1968. Just call the film “Ringo in Sardinia” and just have it be him on vacation.

I never thought the titular Raccoon was an actual animal, just a gunslinger with an odd name. There's really nothing at all in the song to make it a children's song, it's about his violent death at the hands of an angry, jilted cowboy (apparently "Lil" was kind of popular).

Yeah, The Beatles released some crappy songs! However, I heard they practiced 8 hours a day, so they could do anything they want well, even if it sucked. Except Revolution #9. It just sucks IMHO.
By the way, anybody claiming "They don't get The Beatles" is just being a contrarian to stir up sometihing, it is self evident that the Beatles and The Stones were objectively good. Its like saying "The Carpenters were shitty musicians" when obviously they were not. You might not like them, but they were not objectively bad.

"Rocky Raccoon" was another one of those songs that late-60s TV variety show producers adored, because it was a top 40 song that worked for mom-and-dad performers. Plus it was a story so you could work up a sketch around it. Bob Hope did one that I remember specifically, and someone else did one in which Nancy was played as a Mae West type.

I have not listened to Mother Natures Son in forever and I have to say it's surprising and pleasurable to hear McCartney sing schtick-free in a natural voice.

There it is. Best song on the album. Yer Blues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/10/18 11:51am Krys O.:

FWIW--The version of Yer Blues on Rock 'n' Roll Circus is AMAZING!

Prudence is great though.

@Joe B -- Can I come on your show and do this with the Clash's ‘London Calling’ and explode the comments board? ;)

Great idea Mr Sin.

@Mike: Joe says that's cool, but he'd rather start with "Sandinista."

I'm just not comfortable missing "Revolution 9." It's like tossing the jam disk from All Things Must Pass. Maybe it's a totally inefficient use of time and vinyl, but hey, it's rock 'n' roll, where efficiency isn't always a virtue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/10/18 11:56am Planet Tyler:

That's the end: Helter Skelter and Long3

Clash's Sandanista could lose some weight?!
Avatar Mon. 12/10/18 11:56am JakeGould:

@Matt: Why don’t your resequence a Sleep album? Like maybe just “Dopesmoker” but condensed.

Such a brilliant experiment! Thanks Joe and Jim!

“Sandanista” is really easily to condense. So self indulgent. Sorry Clash!

  Mon. 12/10/18 5:16pm illswami:

NEITHER of you guys put Sexy Sadie on your White Albums? I'm not sure I can take Joe's show at all seriously anymore!! (of course, that's beside the point...)
  Wed. 12/12/18 1:15am Elaine Cross:

Thanks for the show - it was as much fun hearing the banter and consideration for placement as it was to hear the songs (and I'm so glad you started off side 2 with 'While my guitar' which is my favourite song on the album).
