Hi all!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 2:08pm Archivist Vivian:

I collect library LPs, mostly from Selected Sound Library. I own several CDs and vinyl LPs of their stuff - My favourite label, you should dive deep into it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'll be hopping over when we do the hand-over! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:15pm -Ken:

Today's Friendly Persuasion episode will also be broadcast on WFMU as Otis manages to be in two places at once! How does he do it?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Time travel! The power of whimsy! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:20pm Otis Fodder:

Viv - Love Selected Sound and an entire Library Show is a great idea. Putting it on my to-do-show list and when it comes about, I'll msg about getting you on for another segment showcasing Selected Sound. Georgy would for sure have a segment too!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 2:22pm Archivist Vivian:

Otis - I'll send you some of my fav stuff from my personal collection.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 2:22pm Archivist Vivian:

I got into SSL for the electronic stuff. Germany knows how to do electronic music right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I would love to do a segment, Otis! I might have one or two library music albums here and there ;-)
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 2:25pm Archivist Vivian:

GeorgyGirl, how are you? xx
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm fine, my lovely!! Broadcasting as we speak! Paving the way for the lovely Otis :-) x
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 2:27pm Archivist Vivian:

Lovely! I'll be in and out as I wish to play some video games while I listen. I always turn the music off of my games so I can play my own music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:27pm Otis Fodder:

I'll get that rolling. Themed shows with segments. I like that idea. I have a few segments set aside for a second varied-genre show now, just need a couple more. Soooo, hint hint, anyone reading this and wants to submit 15min or so with you playing music and talking get in touch with me off chat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:28pm -Ken:

Back in the 80's WFMU had a show called "Your World of Production Music." It was WFMU's only 30 minute long weekly show.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 2:30pm Archivist Vivian:

Otis - I'll contact you later about it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

We could do a chat over the weekend if you're free, Otis? :-) I'll buzz you later :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:37pm Otis Fodder:

@Ken - I would love to hear that show. Who was the DJ, do you recall who produced the production music show? I ask as it would be fun to inquire to see if they would want to jump on for a guest spot here sharing and flashing back to that show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:38pm Otis Fodder:

@Georgy & @Viv - Chat yes, will be about over the weekend. However, on Sunday I will be at a cat convention. Yes, a day-long cat convention in Montreal. Slices of heaven.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:39pm -Ken:

That was me! haha We had a DJ who needed to leave 30 inutes early every week to catch a bus so I started playing 30 minutes of library/production music every week, and people really liked it. No tapes of it unfortunately but I still have lots of the records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Ken - I shall have to pick your brains for Hi-Waisted Modernists! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:40pm Otis Fodder:

@Ken - Why does that not surprise me? Ha! I'm going to msg you about guesting on the show here/doing a segment when I do a library show theme soon. Yes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The Flange & Frigate is in its last ten minutes or so and then Otis is ON! :-)
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 2:59pm Martinibomb:

Hello Otis! Just got my main computer running and re-configuring my Sheena's DJ setup while I listen today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 2:59pm Otis Fodder:

Hey MB, cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:00pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Running in from the other room :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:00pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

GENIUS!!!!!!!! I love it, Otis :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:00pm Otis Fodder:

Did Blossom steal... oh no never, not Georgie's 'fame' (or Thunder).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:01pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Fantastic. What a perfect segue. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:02pm Kat in Chicago:

Hey this is confusing but I like it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:03pm Otis Fodder:

I'm in so many places right now, yet sitting with a glass of wine. How?
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:03pm Mr Fab:

Hey Ken! Thanks for letting Sheena play the main stage today, this is great. hello WFMU main channel listeners to the Jungle Room. Check your leopard-print coats, good taste, and inhibitions at the door. Hit it, Otis!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:03pm Phillippe Bastille:

Detecting high levels of sophistication. Must be the right place for Friday afternoon activities.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:08pm Archivist Vivian:

Could this song be "Sweet Georgia Brown" in another dimension?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:08pm -Ken:

Sitting here, riding the FCC dump button, waiting for Otis to start spewing about FUCKING Blossom Dearie or FUCKING Georgie Fame!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Welcome to our Friday Sheena Shenanigans, lovely WFMU people. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:08pm Otis Fodder:

Thanks Ken for playing the show this week on the main stream, filling in for a station fav of my own, Shiela's show. It's so funny, same time, 2 streams. Thanks everyone for listening. Hope it will be a fun show today for ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:08pm -Ken:

Because I know how you Sheena DJs roll
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:08pm chresti:

Ha Ken!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:09pm Otis Fodder:

Playing Fucking Arthur Lyman next. I think that's the first time I have placed a dirty word before an Exotica great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Ken - are you suggesting that we Sheena DJs are a sweary lot? Perish the VERY thought! lol. ;-)
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:10pm Mr Fab:

Ken is literally is doing 7 second delay today. Where's Andy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:11pm chresti:

I want a taco!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:11pm Otis Fodder:

Thank you Ken. I don't think I dropped an F bomb, but thank you for opening the big red button glass case and hovering over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:11pm -Ken:

This really is maddening... Otis did tell me he MIGHT have cursed during his mic breaks.. so here I sit with headphones on full blast waiting for the F bomb and all I get is TACO
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:11pm Booz:

How many dumps you got? Are there enough for Sheena-level dumping??
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:11pm The Oscar:

Afternoon! Tracking back through the comments-- has anyone made the "Sheena B" joke yet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:11pm Rich in Washington:

TACO!
  Fri. 4/12/19 3:12pm dei xhrist:

Mmmm taco
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:12pm Otis Fodder:

Driving the speed limit, pulling over to eat tacos.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:12pm Phillippe Bastille:

Ken, if anyone can successfully man the delay button, I would think it is you
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:12pm -Ken:

I think you mean "Arthur Fucking Lyman," Otis.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:12pm James Douglas:

I would DIE for a taco right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:13pm chresti:

Is there a loud buzzing sound, or flush, when you hit the dump button?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

On behalf of all the Sheena DJs I hereby send you tacos-a-plenty through time so that you are replete with tacos AND not alone :-)
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:13pm Archivist Vivian:

Taking a little break to play some of my Tiny Tim collection. Today is his birthday and I always celebrate it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:13pm Otis Fodder:

Me too. I have a slice of leftover pizza from last night in the fridge. And 1/2 a bottle of white wine. It helps to push down my taco addiction to acceptable levels.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:14pm Archivist Vivian:

Phone lines! I'd love to call in and perform & talk!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:16pm Webhamster Henry:

WFMU has more listeners with shrunken heads than any other station.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:16pm βrian:

I've long thought WFMU should do a Saturday news show called Weakened Edition.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:17pm Otis Fodder:

I might just call people too. I have numbers in my phone. Solicit for numbers. But yes, planing on setting up a Skype Number and having someone answer it (like good ol' screeners, like Nick). Or maybe I'll just play more Arthur Fucking Lyman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It is evening in the UK, and I have just done a two hour show, so - time for dinner making with Otis on in the background :-) Back in a bit :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:17pm The Oscar:

I saw Tiny Tim at a haunted house theme park on my tenth birthday, and every part of that memory brings me joy.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:17pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Brian I'd listen to that. Then again, I listen to 7 second delay
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:18pm Mr Fab:

A friend of mine had this Lyman album (with real life-size shrunken heads!) on his wall . I pleaded with him for it. He said he'd take my album of show tunes with Betty Page on the cover as a swap. We later saw the same album for $100. The Lyman cost $3. i demanded that he return it. Nope, a trade is a trade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:19pm Otis Fodder:

@Oscar - Wow! Love Tiny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:19pm Booz:

Nice to finally hear Otis on some airwaves. I have lovingly preserved parts of the 365 Days Project on my HD.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:19pm still b/p:

The lulling evocative track and the Taboo cover made for some real incon-fucking-gruity. Of a good kind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:20pm Webhamster Henry:

@Booz the 365 Days section of the WFMU Website is still around, as are similar entities on Beware of the Blog!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:20pm Mr Fab:

remember Booz, you can hear Otis same time, on WFMU's Sheenas' Jungle Room internet stream every week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:21pm Kat in Chicago:

I've been occasionally dipping into the 365 Days archives myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Booz - Otis is here every week on Sheena's Jungle Room! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oh! Mr. Fab beat me to it ;-)

Thanks Booz! That was such a fun project for both years. Met a ton of friends through it, still pals.

exquisite selections here at the show!

I just recently got my mitts on that Lyman Taboo LP but I'm forbidden from putting it on the wall. It creeps the missus out to no end!

Thank you all, for posting the profanity I cannot say out loud at my office. :)
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:23pm Phillippe Bastille:

Not to be a nitpicker or anything, but the radio in the kitten pic is set to the wrong station. needs some Photoshop help
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:23pm Otis Fodder:

Just a couple of hours ago, Ken asked for the fill-in. I recorded the show last night. Ha, so confusing. But I think it will fit well and hopefully do Sheila's timeslot justice (I am a huge fan of her show and listen weekly in the archives).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:23pm chresti:

I love Kraut fur Alle
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:24pm βrian:

Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:25pm Mr Fab:

Remember, on the Sheenas channel, there's no FCC regulations. Maybe next week, Otis will break out his Blowfly collection!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:26pm Otis Fodder:

No Blowfly this week. Dolemite and Blowfly and so on... always on the back burner.

Lee Hazlewood's the best

Kittens are just mainstream radio zombies, I guess. I just kinda... expected better, you know? Its a damn cute kitten.

You're playing Dave the Seagull's theme album there, Otis with The Sweeney. ;-)
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:29pm Martinibomb:

I just finished re-watching season 2 of the sweeney - yup still a great series
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:30pm Jan Turkenburg:

Yeah! looking on!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 3:31pm Mr Fab:

Webhamster Henry sez: "This show is a good intro to the Jungle Room Aesthetic for terrestrial listeners." Yes, we're easing you in gently. Other shows, and the 24/7 stream, get a little kookoo bananas sometimes. Music to wear your fez by, whilst throwin back cocktails. Look out for those pink elephants!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 3:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm ducking out and listening to the rest on archives. :-)
Fantastic show as always Otis and thank you for the segue!

Otis one day you'll watch the Sweeney and you're gonna be like, "gawd damn!" Cause some of those episodes sting. Some of the endings are not nice let's say.

Also, one of my OTHER most treasured childhood memories is the time I met Ed Emberley at a party. He drew a picture of me riding on Godzilla's head, which I still have framed on my wall!

My understanding is that "safe harbor" isn't even anything concrete. It just means you can play things that are "indecent", but you still can't play anything "obscene". And what are the definitions of those terms? They're whatever they say they are at any given moment.

Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:36pm Don-O:

Fab: Was that Johnson/Otis show at the Santa Monica Pier ? I was there......when Otis spent almost 16 minutes tuning his guitar just after the first number. Talk a bout a mood killing road bump.

Caught Don with Ariel several times in Montreal and once in NYC. Always a great show.

I just emailed my idiot governor and will be sending him a fax. Thank you for soundtracking this
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:38pm Otis Fodder:

@Cmurtha - Yes, the radio show and my vote have power!

This Ariel Pink track is terrific. Listening in Tokyo.

The Vocoder segment of the show starting now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:40pm Little Danny:

Otis, have you ever tried a vocoder?
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:42pm grantbob:

JJP and Dana put together excellent stuff! :)
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:42pm Don-O:

ELO used a lot of Vocoder on Time and Disco-Very!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:42pm Otis Fodder:

@Danny - Years ago in music. More recently a faux vocoder using an old Boss SE-70 1/2 rackmount and mic.

segregated vocoder! more vocoder civil rights please : )
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:43pm Otis Fodder:

@Don-O - That's why I pulled out Vocoder music - to cascade into your show on Sheena's top of the hour ... www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:44pm Guido from Cologne:

We had a vintage vocoder @ the radio play studio @ DW radio station.
A design treasue!
Would like to see that gem again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:45pm Otis Fodder:

Next up is a cool disco vocoder version of "As The Years Go By" a Canadian hit by Mashmakhan. Cover from 1982. Original just over a decade previous. Was just passed my way on 12" from my buddy Adam O'Callaghan who was on the show a few months ago playing funk.

Yep, same show, at the Pier! Shuggie fruitlessly futzing with his guitar for what seemed like ages. Don-O, funny, we've apparently been at the same shows over the years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:46pm Otis Fodder:

Dockor is 'almost' like Neil Young's 'Sample and Hold' 12" version. They would blend together nice. I love Sample and Hold sooooo much.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:47pm Don-O:

A small give-a-way: I will start the show with Donnasummeronetheradio. Just warning ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:48pm Otis Fodder:

@Don-O - Loved that one as a kid! Had that on vinyl and Hot Stuff. I have Zapp for your west coast childhood up next.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:48pm Don-O:

I also remember getting a Best Of Bros. Johnson CD after the show at Tower Records in S. M.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:49pm grantbob:

Wondering if we're going to hear anything from Trans...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:49pm Kat in Chicago:

I've played "On The Radio" on the radio myself :)
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:49pm Sem:

Really, some goofy lyrics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:49pm Otis Fodder:

@grantbob - I should cue up Living on Video for a future show. It still holds up I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:50pm -Ken:

There's a great vocoder book with a one hour vocoder mix CD: How to Wreck a Nice Beach: www.amazon.com...
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:50pm Don-O:

The only other concert I went to at the pier (and failed) was Van Dyke Park's gig at the new/old Ash Grove. The tickets flew out the door and they only had standing room only tickets, but since I just got out of my retail job, I went home as my feet would hurt even more.....damnit!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:50pm Mr Fab:

Otis, Don-O may be referring to Steve Fisk's 'Donnasummeronetheradio" from the 365 project.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:51pm Kat in Chicago:

How To Wreck A Nice Beach is SO GOOD. Unfortunately my copy didn't come with the CD, I think the mix lives on the internet somewhere though
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:51pm Don-O:

I fear I'm getting obsessed with Trans within the last few months.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:53pm Don-O:

....with a side order of Disco Hotline....for starters. With a side order of Village People's Milkshake. Hurr....Hurr....Hurr.....

Please keep the vocoder away from Warwick please.

@Fab - Great day/selection by Steve!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:54pm Don-O:

I suspect my show is too Crappy for Donna Summer anyways. I still have a crush on her!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:54pm -Ken:

Zapp is touring again!

What Phillippe said.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:57pm Mr Fab:

but...Roger Troutman of Zapp died years ago..?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:57pm Kat in Chicago:

I remember the original of As the Years Go By. liked Doktor's much much better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:58pm Otis Fodder:

Thanks Phillippe and to Ken for slotting this show into the main stream and for everyone joining today, have a great weekend.

Don/Rich - I'm off to a friend's art show, will be listening to your shows this weekend around the house. Have some good radio timez!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:58pm Guido from Cologne:

Just noticing:
I own this record

Killer show Otis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:58pm Stanley:

Otis! Man, that was a good show. Will be tuning into Sheena's if this is what it's like!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 5:58pm grantbob:

lot of bounce to the ounce
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:58pm Kat in Chicago:

I don't see a Zapp stop in Chicago :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:59pm Kat in Chicago:

@Mr Fab it's the remaining Troutmans I guess
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 5:59pm Little Danny:

Thanks Otis!

See, sometimes it's okay to cross the streams!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:00pm Mr Fab:

The Hour of Crap, followed by Cratediggers' Lung are up next on the Sheena stream. And how can you resist shows with names like that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:01pm Otis Fodder:

I left out Lil Markie and Christian Puppets in general this week. The streams crossed well, nobody was wounded. Whew!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:01pm Kat in Chicago:

It's about time there was a show on 'FMU actually called the Hour of Crap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:02pm Otis Fodder:

and it's a wonderful hour - www.wfmu.org...

'Fab' weekend, all!
