Welcome back Jeff. We kept the tuna wet for you.

These guys are kind like Ozric Tentacles, in that they have an amorphous collective of jammers. Whoa, that sounded deeper than I meant ...

Thank you thank you thank you great to be back
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:13pm Carmichael:

Honestly, I’m a music weirdo out here, and people generally run when I say I ‘ll play something. Didn’t know The Ozrics were widely known and appreciated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 9/15/19 10:13pm chresti:

Hi Jeff! In a happy place
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:14pm Jeff Conklin:

You’re on an FMU message board of course the Ozrics are known (around these parts anyway)
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:16pm Carmichael:

That’s cool, glad to know I’m in a safe zone.

Wow, RIP Rick Ocasek

Welcome back JC. Love the transition from Michael C Sharp to Jonas Monk. Literally was just playing Always Already Here right before turning into the show. It’s gonna be a good night for sure!
Avatar Sun. 9/15/19 10:21pm Franco Twinkie:

The reinstatement of your show lines up nicely with my new substance ingestion program.
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:23pm Carmichael:

Way to go, Franco. I’m going to somehow parlay that into sticking it to the man. Stay tuned ...
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 9/15/19 10:25pm Jeff Conklin:

For those new to the program, substance ingestion not necessary....
Avatar Sun. 9/15/19 10:27pm Dreamflower127:

Scientific fact: The Avant Ghetto reduces Sunday night anxiety by at least a million percent. Welcome back

Curious and excited how the Dead will be incorporated into the new two-hour format

It's great to be back in the avantghetto. Digging on the Sunburned and Goose. Thanks for lighting the way again Jeff!
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:31pm tfunk:

This reminds me of a heavier Lotus
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:31pm Carmichael:

The right ingestion leads to increases sleep. Trust me on this.

I havent checked in with Lotus in 10 years used to dig them for sure!

RIP Daniel Johnston & Ric Ocasek, but welcome back, Jeff.
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:34pm Jeff Conklin:

And Eddie Money
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:35pm moelarryandjesus:

aka Eddie Mahoney & Rick Octasek.
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:36pm john:

Eddie Money was garbage
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:37pm Jeff Conklin:

Eddie Money fucking ruled fuck outta here
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:38pm Dean:

I admired Ocasek and Money. In retrospect, many years after, my sense is that Ocasek was overrated, Money underrated. But so what?
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:38pm tfunk:

Eddie was great for what he was. He knew his place and played it well
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:38pm Carmichael:

@john, when you die we’ll talk shit about you. It seems only right.
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:39pm Matteezmoe:

@john - take your ass home tonight
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:39pm tfunk:

Ohhhh, pwnd off lot!!
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:39pm moelarryandjesus:

Ocasek championed all sorts of great bands. He had Suicide open for the Cars on one tour. He produced the Bad Brains.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 9/15/19 10:40pm Jeff Conklin:

Honestly, I'll take those Money hits over any Johnston or Cars although I have massive respect for them all
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:40pm Carmichael:

Eddie cashed in his ticket to paradise. Maybe Ric got the other one.
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:40pm Bob O:

Welcome back and congrats on your Papahood, Jeff! I saw Ozric @ Wetlands once, pretty amazing band!
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:40pm MONEYBAG$:

This is a good jam but I picture a lot of flatbrims in the audience
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:41pm john:

I just grew up in an era in which AOR ruled and I couldn't stand it. For me it was new wave all the way.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 9/15/19 10:41pm Jeff Conklin:

All good, John
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:42pm Matteezmoe:

Yup lotsa flatbrims with pins on em

I enjoyed it when "Give Me Some Water" came on the radio.

Jeff, you posted something a few weeks ago about a super easy hike that yielded some of the best views. What was that again?

I will say this excerpt cracked me up

"Weeks before a tour, Bob Pollard told us band members that we would encore every show with 7 Eddie Money hits. I learned them but we never did it."

Bob Pollard at my first GBV show in Boston: "If Billy Squier is at my show, you tell him to get the fuck out. The Cars are cool."
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:48pm Bob O:

I've had a soft spot in my heart for Eddie Money ever since I saw him break down while eulogizing his former manager, Bill Graham at his Memorial service in San Francisco. The guy had heart. RIP Ric too, sad, man.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 9/15/19 10:49pm Jeff Conklin:

I would give all my records to hear prime era GBV do Eddie Money.
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:51pm Carmichael:

I wonder if there’s a Lukewarm Tuna out there ...
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:55pm john:

Damn. Never knew Money had a Graham connection.
  Sun. 9/15/19 10:56pm Jujar:

Glad you got a time slot that I can slink out of the weekend into. Solid sounds, man!

Eddie Money opened for the Dead!

Avatar Sun. 9/15/19 11:11pm Franco Twinkie:

I hadda laugh, Jeff, when you implored us to 'support the scene' You're 40 or there about?
  Sun. 9/15/19 11:11pm David Colangelo:

Very hip mr dj...that drummer kicks it...do you have any Jim Baker records with tonight?
  Sun. 9/15/19 11:12pm Jon:

Such a great drums/guitar duo! I saw Ryley play a few times when I was living in Chicago over the last couple years. Incredible musician.

Welcome back Jeff. Don't know if it is because it is on thrill jockey, but that new ryley walker duo reminds me of Pullman

Reminds me a little of some of Sandy Bull's stuff - Joost
Avatar Sun. 9/15/19 11:19pm Franco Twinkie:

Yes! of course. I am only slightly conflicted about not going out anymore (or rarely is more like it.) But it beats the hell out of us. It takes a couple of days to recover.
  Sun. 9/15/19 11:19pm Jeff Conklin:

Def a Bull vibe and a Chapman vibe when he sings. Great musician.
  Sun. 9/15/19 11:19pm Jeff Conklin:

Come on Franco get out there! It keeps you young.
  Sun. 9/15/19 11:19pm Mike Wolf:

Jeff. You’ve been back for 10 minutes and you’re already harassing the troops.

Don’t ever change

Gotta get ALPS Mountaineering King Kong Chair, Franco. Little heavy but great for sitting for long hours in the grass/campgrounds.

Downer Meltdown Folk, is that what you said? Works for me!
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 9/15/19 11:25pm Jeff Conklin:

That camp chair would be a sight at small club shows. Whereabouts do you reside, Franco?
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 9/15/19 11:26pm Jeff Conklin:

Oh, hey, I was asked some questions for a piece about non-commercial radio. Here's a little survey: Have you bought a record/tape/etc or gone to a show because you heard something on this show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/15/19 11:27pm daves:

Yes, many times
  Sun. 9/15/19 11:27pm Dean:

"Have you bought a record/tape/etc or gone to a show because you heard something on this show?"

Are you fucking kidding me?
Avatar Sun. 9/15/19 11:28pm Franco Twinkie:

Thanks Shooty! I'm always interested in gear that makes sitting by the campfires the ultimate in comfort. No more sitting on the ice chest,
that's what I say!
Avatar Sun. 9/15/19 11:29pm Eiderdown:

Yes but probably too many to count. Alexander, Ragnarok, Wet Tuna to name the most recent few purchases. Saw Alexander live too...twice!
Avatar Sun. 9/15/19 11:30pm Franco Twinkie:

  Sun. 9/15/19 11:30pm Dean:

By which I mean, uhm, duh, yes, of course I have. Many times too numerous to remember.
  Sun. 9/15/19 11:31pm Matteezmoe:

Over 80% of my Bandcamp collection was purchased because of something I heard in this show! Thank you Jeff, much appreciated.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 9/15/19 11:32pm Jeff Conklin:

I guess i kinda knew the answer to that ha but thanks just the same to all who chime in...
  Sun. 9/15/19 11:33pm Cavalier Record Store:

I’ve bought many records for the shop I’ve heard on your show. Also got an email this past week telling me your the new sales rep at one of the labels I order from
