@Rev: good idea! a tiny bit of ghost peppers go a long way, and it will help wake me up (w/ my mate/tea). I used to drink hot sauce before boring meetings beforehand to stay awake.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/21/19 3:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Does there exist a grid that shows the live schedule for Sheena's programs? I know there's a trick where you append "/drummer" to the site URL to see the Drummer stream. Is there something similar available for Sheena's?

@ Chris from DC -- that sucks! "kids today" -- is it just me, or does it seem that many of the young-uns have no sense of cultural/historical reference?? i mean, i was too young to remember Glenn Miller, Andrews Sisters, others form my parents' younger days -- but i still had a sense of their significance . . . .

A lot of self important musicians in San Francisco would snark about how plastic blah, blah, L.A. - you know the rap, The Monkees were, except Jerry Garcia. He liked the show, and said so in interviews at the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/21/19 5:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Who wouldn't like the show? I mean - seriously.
I think Dolenz did indeed play the Moog parts.

Tork jammed with Hendrix and the beatles and Winwood (?) and others and from the little i've heard was a good banjo player, among several other instruments. apparently he was the cool one. (& was always my favorite)
Avatar Thu. 2/21/19 5:23pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Based on that solo gig a few years back, can confirm the banjo chops.
Avatar Thu. 2/21/19 5:24pm coelacanth∅:

Rev -from head right? i've never seen it but i remember that sound bite from some wfmu show which was always followed by something about the monkees.

ø: exactly. It's one of the most quotable lines in motion picture history. It's right up there with "I think it would be FUN to run a newspaper" and "....yep, that's a human ear, alright..."

When we heard about Peter this morning we were making Tamales and filling them with squash, tomatos, and cheese. The only time I every missed The Monkees is once in the 1968 season because I would not eat my squash, tomato, and cheese casserole, and my father said your not leaving the table till you clean your plate. He relented during Laugh-In. I guess I won, or did I?
Avatar Thu. 2/21/19 5:31pm dale:

hello. that last one sounded like tales of failure and imagination
  Thu. 2/21/19 5:31pm P:

Somebody mentioned the "Space Cowboy." Does anybody know what the Space Cowboy WFMY DJ is up to now? I used to really like his show.

  Thu. 2/21/19 5:34pm P:

Yes, it was the Cosmic Cowboy.
Avatar Thu. 2/21/19 5:36pm coelacanth∅:

jeez i used to listen to Cozmic Cowboy all the time, and recorded some of his shows...but i don't remember his opening music.
Avatar Thu. 2/21/19 5:37pm slugluv1313:

@Franco Twinkie -- WOW! similar story: NEVER missed The Monkees EXCEPT for the one time my younger sister and i had to be at our Aunt Sophie's house (do not recall what my parents had to do??) -- she PROMISED my DAD that we could watch The Monkees (added bonus -- she had a color TV!!!) -- BUT, when the show was about to come on, her son (my much older Cousin Billy) just had to watch some dumb old football game (maybe THAT is why i have never liked spectator sports???) -- when my Dad found out, he felt horrible -- and he ended up buying The Monkees' first LP for me -- NOT because i was some spoiled brat who was throwing temper tantrums (my Depression era parents would NEVER stand for that!) BUT because his sister (Aunt Sophie) had broken her promise
  Thu. 2/21/19 5:39pm P:

Cosmic Cowboy would have some weird, spacey music as his bed, and he would talk over it with a echo effect on his voice.

Ok, that was unexpectant, I have a phone interview w/ the NYC OEM, I've been firing off so many job applications here in FL and NYC I lost track, mostly to fulfill the draconian unemployment requirements in this purple state.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/21/19 5:40pm Carmichael:

What's the OEM, ngh?
Avatar Thu. 2/21/19 5:42pm coelacanth∅:

yes Cozmic Cowboy's echo would get out of hand sometimes! i felt like i was getting nauseous!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/21/19 5:44pm Booz:

Yeah, I remember the Cowboy's echo thing. He used it a lot on 40 Acres and a Turntable, or whatever it was called, too. The opening song was this high-lonesome story-song about meeting a cosmic cowboy. I've never been able to find it. Maybe it was an original?
Avatar Thu. 2/21/19 5:46pm coelacanth∅:

he had Don Walzer as a guest once, which seemed like an odd thing to me, but Don rolled with it with a great sense of humour and there was no echo on Don's voice, as i remember. he played an excellent version of long black veil - a song i love anyway.
Don died not long after.
Avatar Thu. 2/21/19 5:46pm Franco Twinkie:

Slugluv, That was very noble of your Pa. You were the clearly the victim of someone else's selfish whims. I on the other hand was just pulling some trip. most likely I had seen a Berkeley sit-in on tv, and wanted to see if I could get what I wanted been a refusenik.
