"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.)

hey everybody! this morning drive was so fucked up!

Nobody ever complains about commutes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/8/19 9:23am Aaron Working In Newark:

Everyone was driving 1000 MPH in the rain. It was fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/8/19 9:24am steveo:

hey now this sounds familiar; also next time put the remote broadcasting rig in your back seat just in case; oh a different cover eh?

Morning everyone. I've missed the rocketship songs.

OH WOW I DON’T BELIEVE A COMMUTE WENT BAD!!! WOW!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/8/19 9:29am steveo:

i used to take the path in the reverse commute way to jc for work; it was pretty empty. would probably suck to haul a crate of records though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/8/19 9:29am Ken From Hyde Park:

If you're not complaining about your morning commute, you''re not doing it right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/8/19 9:31am Aaron Working In Newark:

Good Morning Melinda. :)

ISN'T SOMEONE GOING TO RUSH TO MY DEFENSE AND SAY "HOLD ON, JAKE. LET HIM EXPLAIN"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/8/19 9:31am steveo:

ANHALTEN, JAKE. Lassen Sie ihn erklären.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/8/19 9:33am ben abs:

I think the playlist is giving us clues ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/8/19 9:41am Aaron Working In Newark:

I have been waiting with bated breath for the commute story JA.
  Fri. 2/8/19 9:44am îke:

Duh, everybody knows Bryce is a time thief. He’s taking your missing minutes and using them to pick his nose. Or your nose. Or to slip 7-inchers into your collection as a prank.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/8/19 9:45am Mick:

Alls I know is that I was in the tunnel and I got to hear some extra Joe Belock Wake and then the entire Neil Rolnick Wake. JA, yours wasn't the actual overturned vehicle, I hope.
Avatar Fri. 2/8/19 9:45am John Allen:

it's not much of a story. the holland tunnel was closed due to an accident and I had to ditch my car in a lot in tribeca/ hail a cab to wtc/ take the path to exchange place then run.

There was a song played on this show, a few weeks/months ago, of a guy (maybe in fluxus?) - recording himself listening back to old tapes and annotating - anybody remember what that was?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/8/19 10:10am steveo:

fabio puts a segueway between every song he plays and the next one

Does every city have that one cult-rock oddball who can easily be seen sauntering around record stores? In Boston it's Andy Pratt (and to a slightly lesser extent Jeff Connolly from the Lyres).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/8/19 10:48am ben abs:

@Cmurtha - you the boss! - cheers mate :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/8/19 10:49am Cmurtha:

I left an old J.A in the A.M playing while this was going on, and so the Unicorn song was filled with Wagner, and you speaking was adorned with someone else speaking, I was digging it, thought it was intentional though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/8/19 10:49am Cmurtha:

Glad I could help!
