  Fri. 1/3/20 9:52pm JakeGould:

In the early 1980s I was into Howard Stern on 66 WABC in NYC. Imus was on too. Utterly nobody I knew in JHS liked Imus. Only one person: A classmate that was a very 1980s proto hipster named Anne.

Wore a denim jacket filled with patches. She would yell at us about how she met Don Imus once and then would get all hyper and spastic and then would have to be taken to the school nurse.

I miss Anne. I don’t miss Imus.

I was really into Scottish folk music, and my grandfather was a big music nerd like me, so he made me a mixtape, the best part of which was a 1974 Nat'l Geographic album, most of it field rather than studio recording, called The Music of Scotland. Has some great stuff. Not too many bagpipes on that album, however, though Grandpa did put a good bit of that on there as well.

@Hubig I don't know if he specialized that far. I know there were a lot of albums marketed as "bagpipe music" in his collection. I always just assumed it all was categorized as 'torture tools".
  Fri. 1/3/20 10:11pm JakeGould:

I think the first 4AD cover I ever saw was the Cocteau Twins “Garlands” at Record Runner on Jones Street in the West Village. Wanted to buy it, but it was a pricey import CD. But what a weird, bleak and intriguing cover.

I think that last one is a Roy Orbison cover, pretty rockin'

4 Years ago? Maybe, the older ones I'm working on at this point are from June '15 through early '16.

My favorite Cocteau Twins title is Peppermint Pig, that one always makes me cry.

@mariano years ago when the store I work in had only a cassette player for music I played my tape of the sea shanties during cruise ship tourist season, for maximum maritime ambience. I don't know if anyone noticed.

Any Cocteau Twins past Treasure kind of loses me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/3/20 10:52pm ParUbi:

I can look this up, it was around 6/20/2015. I reupped the track around then because of all the excitement.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/3/20 10:53pm ultradamno:

Except Moon and the Melodies, I guess. Though that's exactly a Cocteau Twins release even though they're all on it.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 1/3/20 10:54pm mariano:

@ultradamno: for me it's Blue Bell Knoll or Carolyn's Fingers. But I love all of them.
@melina: Hah, that's great! What kind of store was it?

Hello Dan, hello all! I've been in hospital for the better part of a week with me dad who suffered a stroke. What a range of emotions and a cause for exhaustion. I just settled in after the final correspondence for the night...and I get some SWANS! Just what the doctor ordered. Thanks, Dan!

Sorry to hear Mr Pumpy, difficult times for you.

@MrPumpy: I literally know that feeling. Spent a lot of time with my mom and dad bedside early in life. Be strong and don’t take care of yourself.

My heart goes out to all of you that know this type of situation. It's horrible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/3/20 11:11pm Mr. Pumpy:

@Jake & mariano...It's one those things wherein sleep is the only escape, yet I wake up and soon remember, while still in bed, and quickly get that nauseous feeling. I should say sleep is mostly an escape, but last night I dreamt about being there in the hospital room. Such is life...I guess. Again...these words of support from Dan and some listeners are not taken for granted...and I thank you.

Avatar 🎃 Fri. 1/3/20 11:23pm mariano:

@Mr Pumpy: It's a lot like a physical injury, and it requires rest and downtime to get better. Family and friends were really great with me, always there but always giving me my space as well. Let the people in your life hold you up.

Good night, @TDK60.
