Artist Track Album Comments Images Approx. start time
The Addicts  Without God I Would Be Nothing   Favoriting The Addicts Sing  (Notes: The Addicts Sing is now well-known, but did you know that one of the members was John Gimenez, a big wheel in the Reconstructionalist Movement who were tight with Reagan… - Jello pg. 40) 
0:00:00 (Pop-up)
(Bonus Track) Teen Challenge Addicts Choir  The Addicts Plea   Favoriting Teen Challenge Addicts Choir

0:08:14 (Pop-up)
(Bonus Track) Teen Challenge Addicts Choir  Psalms 40   Favoriting Teen Challenge Addicts Choir   
0:22:30 (Pop-up)
The Royal Heirs  It’s Not an Easy Road   Favoriting Sacred Saxophones  (Notes: “The Sacred Saxophones” by the Royal Heirs is hands-down the most miserable, depressing collection of dirges I’ve ever heard. They always talk about how “uplifting” religious music is supposed to be, but not the Royal Heirs! Suicidal teens beware- you’re much safer with Ozzy or Judas Priest!” - Jello pg. 40) One of the more depressing tracks on this LP. I didn't even make it to side 2 while prepping this show. lol -Your D.J. 
People’s Temple Choir  Set Them Free   Favoriting He's Able  (Notes: “He’s Able,” by the People’s Temple Choir, shows Mrs. Jim Jones with piled-up hair singing off-key Godspell Songs, a lot of hallelujah-ing people,…” Jello pg. 40) 
0:26:49 (Pop-up)
People’s Temple Choir  Hold On, Brother   Favoriting He's Able  (These don’t sound off key to me and I’ve never hear Godspell but don’t think any of these tracks were on that. - Your D.J.) 
0:29:24 (Pop-up)
People’s Temple Choir  Welcome   Favoriting He's Able  (“…plus about a hundred little kids - one wonders: where are they now?” - Jello pg. 40) 
0:31:50 (Pop-up)
Art Linkletter  We Love You, Call Collect   Favoriting We Love You, Call Collect Plus Interviews With Young Drug Users  (“We all remember “We Love Your Diane,” by Art Linkletter, released after she dropped acid and jumped out the window, and before Art went on his campaign to stop drugs and promote contour chairs. (He narrates a PMRC video, by the way.” - Jello pg. 40) 
0:33:26 (Pop-up)
Art Linkletter  Dear Mom and Dad   Favoriting We Love You, Call Collect Plus Interviews With Young Drug Users

0:43:19 (Pop-up)
Victor Lundberg  Open Letter to my Teenage Son   Favoriting Open Letter to my Teenage Son  (Notes: “An even funnier one is Victor Lundberg’s “Open Letter to My Teenage Son.” With patriotic music he goes on and on about how we have freedom and the right to do this and that - “but burn your draft card, I will have no son.” He’s got some interesting thoughts on “the long hair,” too.” - Jello pg. 40) 
0:46:19 (Pop-up)

1:09:21 (Pop-up)
Stryper  Soldiers Under Command   Favoriting Soldiers Under Command  (Notes: Christian heavy metal is another genre perversion: at their concerts Stryper threw bibles out to the crowd. One album shows them posing with bombs painted to match their striped spandex pants and sporting Farrah Fawcett ’70’s wigs and makeup. I wonder if the Charlie’s Angles cast realized their most lasting influence would be on heavy metal wig-styles!” - Jello pg. 41) 
1:36:31 (Pop-up)
The Messiah Prophet Band  Rock The Flock   Favoriting Rock the Flock  (Notes: “They feel that because it has satanic rhythms handed down from the druids, it’s still satanic music - therefore groups like Stryper are either knowingly leading children to hell, or unknowingly are under the influence of druids and satanists. But that doesn’t deter people like the Messiah Prophet Band, who do “Rock the Flock”! - Jello pg. 41) 
1:41:30 (Pop-up)
(Bonus track) Church Universal And Triumphant, Inc. Featuring Elizabeth Clare Prophet  Video Shorts With Two Announcements (Excerpt)/Preamble - Great Divine Rector's Cal/ Invocation For Judgement Against And Destruction Of Rock Music   Favoriting The Sounds Of American Doomsday Cults Vol. 14

The Rap'Sures  You Must Be Born Again   Favoriting Gospel Rap  (“There’s also Christian rap, by the Rap’sures: “You Must Be Born Again” and “Break Out for Jesus.” - Jello pg. 41) 
1:50:57 (Pop-up)

out-of-the-way antique and thrift stores are just the best for weird records. I miss traveling.

I can't hold a thought for longer than two or three seconds..
Avatar 2:14pm BC Sterrett:

I tried to hold a thought for 15 minutes while driving to work the other day and it was HARD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Jan Turkenburg:

But keeping the thought unchanged is the challenge. Those things are not stable!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Rich in Washington:

Hi Jan!
Avatar 2:17pm BC Sterrett:

I tried by exploring all aspects of a thought for as long as I could to extend it. I was aiming for 20 minutes but 15 wasn't bad :)

Usually saxophones are labelled as sexy, but I am very glad to know they can also be sacred. Hello!

I should have gotten a closeup of the photo he's talking about on this LP.
Avatar 2:30pm Constance De Witt:

Hi Jan & BC, I wish I could see the piled-up hair more clearly. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Jan Turkenburg:

I heard some off key singing earlier on, but I don't know which track that was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Jan Turkenburg:

This however ... seems to meet the criterium..
Avatar 2:33pm Constance De Witt:

Who uses this during their radio show?? Someone does!
Avatar 2:33pm BC Sterrett:

Those were the only two tracks that sounded like they might be Mrs. Jim Jones.
Avatar 2:34pm BC Sterrett:

I heard Otis use it once on FP many years ago :) At the time I didn't know what it was.
Avatar 2:34pm Constance De Witt:

Oh it must be him, it must be him! Now I feel foolish if it is...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Jan Turkenburg:

I try to remember... is there an answer to this letter ? ..as it was returned to sender I don't suppose there is.
Avatar 2:38pm BC Sterrett:

I think my friend Michael Brunelle, who does the artwork for my show, used it on his show "Butterfly Mind" based on private press records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Rich in Washington:

There's a pretty amusing clip where Timothy Leary is ambushes on some talk show when the host gets Art Linkletter on the phone line and more or less blames him for Diane's death. It's pretty trashy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Rich in Washington:

I can't not hear the Bran Flakes song when I hear this.

I think someone on the old WFMU blog dedicated a whole post to 'open letter' and response records.
Avatar 2:52pm BC Sterrett:

ooh, I need to check that out! I only know of maybe 3? There's one later in the Biafra chapter as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Rich in Washington:

I could be wrong. It might have also been anti-hippie records in general.

1992 – Indiana University

Researchers at Indiana University, commissioned by Indiana school officials in 1992, found that those who completed the D.A.R.E. program subsequently had significantly higher rates of hallucinogenic drug use than those not exposed to the program.[6]

Jerry Falwell always looked to me like he could have been a 60s-80s era character actor with his hey day being in the 70s
Avatar 3:27pm BC Sterrett:

Totally. I can see him as the next door neighbor always mowing his lawn or working on his car in the driveway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm joe:

Or the corrupt feeble southern politician in the seersucker suit and straw hat. You know like like Lindsey Graham :P
Avatar 3:32pm BC Sterrett:

Huh, I had to lookup what a seersucker suit was

"Uppertaker" I like that

Whew, we made it. Anyone still around?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm joe:

You're the only one. ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm joe:

Can I assume this is a safe space and admit that there was a very very short time in my life when I listened to Stryper unironically
Avatar 3:42pm BC Sterrett:

I would've like to attend one of their shows.
Avatar 3:43pm BC Sterrett:

Avatar 3:43pm BC Sterrett:

Yes, this is a safe place for such things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm joe:

I believe they are still together but now they look more the aging rocker then the gymnastic bumble bee
Avatar 3:46pm BC Sterrett:

This record got me into trouble/fired at my old radio station...
Avatar 3:50pm BC Sterrett:

Wow, I really did scare everyone off. I guess it's safe to play anything now...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm joe:

I think someone samples that David Bowie mispronunciation on something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm joe:

HA!!! J Iglesias
Avatar 3:53pm BC Sterrett:

Maybe it was Negativeland? I think that was a record they used to play on their radio shows.
Avatar 3:55pm BC Sterrett:

Wonder if this was ever played at a dance club somewhere...
Avatar 3:56pm BC Sterrett:

Wow, this song is long...this might be my last track.
