"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

If you want a really gratifying hate-read, look up Jenna Ryan, the Texas real-estate broker who took a private plane to the insurrection, proudly posting stuff like "We're gonna storm the Capitol, yes siree, that's exactly what we came to do" and "Yep. We just stormed the Capitol, just like we said" then taking pictures of herself smiling next to a broken window.

@YB: I have to concur. It was easy for me to abandon FB in ~2014 and Instagram in 2018 because I have, shall we say, an extremely limited number of friends. Many social media platforms have their hard-to-dispute uses (for instance, I loved all the birding groups/photographers on Instagram, and I'm on Goodreads), but day by day the perniciousness of FB, et al., increasingly outweighs the real and perceived benefits.

Hey, tim!

Despite my actually being from Georgia originally, I actually have to get out there and move around with the hound a bit. Great show today, JA, top to bottom! Thanks to you and Skeleton Matt. (But mainly Bruce.)

Be well, J'All. Hope to see youse soon.

@Annette, like JA said, it's the jokers at the FCC requiring every freakin' station to say their official call letters and official city of license at or near the top of the hour, every hour. Otherwise it would be radio anarchy and you know what that means: Animal Skin Guy would rule all radio! (Not sure why they have to say "in NYC and Rockland Co. at 91.9" though, that part is mysterious, not part of any FCC guideline that I know of.)

Handy: Great post from Hurst. I really hope that with the clout the Dems have now, not to mention control of the WH and both houses, there will be a major reckoning for social-media companies. I also hope we'll soon be seeing talk of restoring the Fairness Doctrine and FCC regulation.

This is the color of the fabled North Orange, which, like Brigadoon, will reappear someday, right down the street from Star Tavern, with some cigar-chomping guy in sweats saying, "Whatchoo lookin' at? You ain't never seen a vanished mythical town reappear before? Pfft."

yknow Mike that show title has been up for grabs for years now, but it's really hard one to commit to. You have to show up at a lot of events and pretend you enjoy people approaching you while trying to enjoy garage bands.

Dave the Spazz was one of the first shows I listened to. One night I had the (web) radio on and fell asleep early. Woke up in the middle of the show to the sounds of screeching monkeys. WTF??!!! I thought.

David (in London):

Hey Carmichael.

Mariano - The annoying part of going to bed is knowing that I miss several great shows: Gaylord, EFD, Dave the Spazz. However, the time difference does mean that I get to listen to what I consider several absolutely crucial ones: Carol Crow, Emily L, Polyglot, Stan. I've often reflected on how one's time zone shapes one's perception of FMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38am
David (in London):

That said, maybe I should just give up sleeping entirely and never stop listening...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40am
Ike:

Polyglot and Carol (Serious Moonlight Sonatas) are excellent. I try to catch the archives but I often miss some and so I rarely have time to get to Stan and the others as well.

John Maus communicating like a remedial Steve Bannon has been pretty depressing. Apparently, they've been quite open with their idiotic views and I'm just late to the party (can't claim I was really familiar with them apart from listening to records from nine years ago and stuff played FMU).

tim from champaign (now washington):

JA - That's an interesting point that cancel culture in music tends to be primarily in indie rock. I know I'm out of the loop with trends, especially in the on-line world but I'm not seeing much retro-active calls to action against musicians in other genres. There are a lot of ill-behaved, nefarious and questionable points of view holders in music.

Tim, yes indeed. There was a lot of love being expressed on the Accu yesterday for Moondog for example. But, being honest, he was virulently racist, sexist and anti-Semitic. Philip Glass had a very difficult time with him. Genius music, though, so you either take it or leave it I guess...

I did dump my Nugent records a few years ago. I finally had enough of his mouth. I also got rid of my copy of the Dwarves' Blood Guts and Pussy after I had a kid. I got rid of it mainly to avoid an awkward explanation of the cover art if my daughte rever got a hold of it.
