Oh yeah, what was that show on FMU 20+ years ago where they played stuff like this, tapes with no labels found at thrift shops, etc? Oh, hi Nick!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 3:02am mariano:

Kid's going to town on that drum machine.
  🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 3:03am opurt:

Incorrect Music?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 3:03am mariano:

Yeah, I think that was it, thanks @opurt!
  🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 3:05am opurt:

Anytime!
Why does every show change on WFMU feel like the good old CBC days of "regular programming" to Brave New Waves or Nightlines?
  Mon. 12/2/19 3:06am ignatatus666:

Hey Nick
This is NTB painfull
Sounds like a karaoke group that takes itself seriously
I’ve heard their conversations late nights in random diners
You just want to tell them they suck but you kinda rather want to see them strung out on the streets in a year instead
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 3:07am Nick the Bard:

Tongiht's show was supposed to be WAY WAY WAY something else, but, for whatever reason I couldn't focus on it at all, so, we're getting what we're getting tonight, maybe next week we'll get the other thing (probably another cold coming on, ugh)
Avatar Mon. 12/2/19 3:09am slugluv1313:

@ mariano -- yes! Incorrect Music! previously known as Atrocious Music :)
was also thinking that this could easily be a selection from Music of Mind Control
  Mon. 12/2/19 3:10am ignatatus666:

I won’t ask then if it was an outerscope
Related Vegetable soup theme
I’ll keep that one for a later conversation question
And I didn’t mention the Earths a big blue marble when you see it from out there
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 3:12am mariano:

I just remember this one tear-inducingly hilarious recording of what sounded like some 13-year-old boy whose voice is changing singing along to Rod Stewart's "Tonight I'm Yours" while plinking along on one string of a guitar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 3:13am Nick the Bard:

anyting with Outerscope is probably going to be happening two shows from now (assuming I can get next week's to happen as I want it to), I need to sit down and actually rewatch the stuff first, and, my wrain no berk correctightly
  Mon. 12/2/19 3:14am ignatatus666:

Wow
Richie Kotzen really is good. I’ve heard Eddie Trunk speak on him
Many times. Thanks for playing that.
  Mon. 12/2/19 3:16am ignatatus666:

Oh good luck watching that
Last time I researched the show the posts were videotaping a tv playing the show
If I remember I’ll do more looking into it. Any quality I find I’ll send to your inbox
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 3:20am Nick the Bard:

It's super easy to find (both outerscope and vegetable soup), it's more just a matter of trying to figure out the timing on stuff really (and going at a break neck pace to get this show ready here isn't really conductive to that sort of thing)
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 3:22am mariano:

I feel like I should be starring in a Shaft-like movie.
Avatar Mon. 12/2/19 3:25am slugluv1313:

@ mariano -- i found this!

Holy shit, @slugluv, that is IT! Thanks!

Wizz-o had an entry here - wfmu.org...

@ mariano -- i could not remember this at all, so i searched! :)

Gren makes me want to hear sour grapes
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 3:36am mariano:

The collective mind of the Accuplaylist never ceases to amaze me. Somebody always knows what I'm talking about!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 3:42am Nick the Bard:

and the dj's need the help from it too at times
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 3:56am Ignatatus666:

I felt like an outsider not signing in
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 4:02am Nick the Bard:

Yeh we don't need three of Boingo Connection on the playlist
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 4:19am mariano:

Damn. And I'd just made myself a smooth jazz cocktail...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 4:23am Nick the Bard:

You could just combine it into one big glass
  Mon. 12/2/19 4:28am listener monica:

good morning slugluv if you are still up!
Avatar Mon. 12/2/19 4:29am dan in wisconsin:

All right. The Koto brought me out of the woodwork. Italo is like mixing a fine wine with sharp cheddar. Great stuff.
Avatar Mon. 12/2/19 4:34am dan in wisconsin:

It's possible that Dragon's Legend was also the first song to contain a video game sample, but the more I think it was probably a Hip Hop track. Maybe it was an early Adrian Sherwood produced song. He did a lot of early Ministry production.
Avatar Mon. 12/2/19 4:38am slugluv1313:

hiya, monica!
good morning to you too -- alhough i am actually going to (finally, hopefully) get some rest
  Mon. 12/2/19 4:39am listener monica:

although i have been tuned in to 91.1 since at least 1971, there was a period when hardcore punk was all the rage among WFMU disc jockies. I was forced to seek other music on the FM dial. Enter Matt-Pinfield era WRSU, which coincided with a brief move for me to New Brunswick. I became a regular at the Melody, a dance bar. The soundtrack somewhat resembled this.
Avatar Mon. 12/2/19 4:49am slugluv1313:

yes! if i remember correctly, you moved to New Brunswick, just shortly after i had moved out (& didn't you live in teh same building?)
i remember The Melody too, although was there only a few times
  Mon. 12/2/19 4:51am listener monica:

we did live in the same building!
  Mon. 12/2/19 4:52am listener monica:

ivan kral opened up a video store downstairs...
Avatar Mon. 12/2/19 4:59am slugluv1313:

right! i remember you telling me that!
years later, i met him again while working at Tower Books -- he came up to the register, i am thinking, "gee, this person looks awful familiar!" -- then i see his name on his credit card and i am like DUH! how could i *not* recognize you!
wondering if that building in New Brunswick is fancy condos now? when i moved there in 1980, my roommates and i were told that it had been an empty abandoned old department store
  Mon. 12/2/19 5:50am ignatatus666:

FYI headed out of JFK I hate day traffic
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 5:54am mariano:

Where you off to, @ignatatus666?
  Mon. 12/2/19 5:55am ignatatus666:

Dropped a client
Headed back to Peekskill
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 12/2/19 5:59am mariano:

Ah, I see.
Avatar Mon. 12/2/19 6:06am Pete from Melbourne:

Hey guys did the format change today or am I on acid that I don’t remember taking? Very green...
