Hey, Larry, we had two very cold weeks: low 10s, but tomorrow, it will be almost 70!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Funky16Corners:

Theo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm Funky16Corners:

We had a weird day like that this week. Coming off of a week of snow and ice, we had a day in the 50s. Of course it's snowing again
Avatar 3:09pm Erica:

Hi guys! I'm tuning in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm Funky16Corners:

Erica!
Avatar 3:11pm TDK60:

Hmm, another cover of 'Darkness' -a Youngbloods tune. Heard a Mott The Hoople version recently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Funky16Corners:

The Mott version is great
Avatar 3:12pm StringOFperils:

Gloria Loring is a rare listen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Funky16Corners:

I love her second and third albums. Really interesting stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm dutchtheo:

Is that your own sun dog? or a copy cat;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Funky16Corners:

Found it on the intertubes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Funky16Corners:

And Hey String!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Funky16Corners:

@Theo - I saw a picture of one last week and became fascinated. I've never seen one in person. They're very cool. Parhelia!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Candy-O'67:

Hey, Larry and all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Funky16Corners:

Candy-O!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Candy-O'67:

Larry, that looks like TX right now in your photo there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Rick from SC:

Thanks guys, I just learned what a sun dog is.
Avatar 3:19pm StringOFperils:

I used to see those in Winnipeg.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm dutchtheo:

Yes, fascinating. I heard vaguely about the mock sun and was reading the wiki page now..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm listener Rey:

Hey there Larry and everybody. I'm using your show as the soundtrack to my snow-shoveling today.
Avatar 3:21pm still b/p:

Seen them many times but never as intense as that.
Avatar 3:23pm SquigY0:

brrr...cold out there...and apparently in here!
Avatar 3:24pm TDK60:

Never seen a sun dog. In an earlier show, a sun spiral was mentioned.
Avatar 3:24pm StringOFperils:

For that atmospheric lensing into three Suns, the air has to be full of ice crystals at a temperature where it's too cold to snow, due to zero possible evaporation.
Avatar 3:25pm StringOFperils:

It's hazy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Rey! Lift with your legs!
Avatar 3:25pm Erica:

Gloria Loring is/was apparently Robin Thicke's birth mom. You learn something new everyday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm Funky16Corners:

@String - We rarely get conditions like that here in NJ
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Candy-O'67:

SOP, we've gotten all your snow since Sunday!! I'm sure you've heard. It's been crazy down here. The snow storm of the century here. It doesn't snow like it has ever down here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Funky16Corners:

I have some friends down in TX, including the Drummer Stream's own Kris Holmes, who is having an unpleasant time of it
Avatar 3:27pm StringOFperils:

Yeah, I think it has to be pretty cold, Larry. My experiences with sun dogs were probably -30 C ones.
Avatar 3:27pm TDK60:

I need to call a friend in San Marcos, Tx.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Candy-O'67:

It's true, Larry. We've all been having a pretty unpleasant time. Did Kris get to do his show on Tues.? I didn't get to listen. I was without power for 48 hours and made it to a friend's house. I was able to come back home yesterday with power back on
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Funky16Corners:

I don't think so. He's dealing with burst pipes and no heat, like so many others
Avatar 3:29pm StringOFperils:

@Candy-O. You had crossed my mind Texas, and your poor cactus garden. Hope you're now breaking up furniture for firewood. It has been a year and a half, hasn't it..
Avatar 3:30pm StringOFperils:

*not breaking up furniture, not "now"....ugh..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Candy-O'67:

It has, SOP! Luckily not having to chop up furniture! I'm not sure if I'll lose all my large cactus clusters in my front and back yard yet. We shall see. That would be such a shame if I do...:(
Avatar 3:31pm Sem:

Tearing this thing up. Love the Bros.
Avatar 3:31pm SquigY0:

damn why's there smoke comin out my laptop?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Funky16Corners:

Nobody beats the Isley's covers of 70s stuff. Their Fire and Rain is epic.
Avatar 3:32pm Vincent The Soul Chef:

I really need to replace my copy of this album. I've had it since I was five, true story... it's hashed.
Avatar 3:32pm still b/p:

When I lived in West Texas, a stretch of just a couple weeks of below-freezing temps, not nearly as severe as the current conditions, led to pipes a' burstin' all over town. New phenomenon for someone from northeast.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Funky16Corners:

hey SBP!
Avatar 3:34pm still b/p:

Afternoon, to all sun dogs and cats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Little Danny:

Yo, L'il Danny.
Avatar 3:36pm StringOFperils:

Hey, LD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Little Danny:

Winter-evoking songs this afternoon, Larry? Am I reading the playlist correctly?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Candy-O'67:

Vincent, that's what is going on here now. Praying my master bath pipes don't burst. Nothing has been working in there except my hot water in the sinks since Sunday :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Funky16Corners:

Just a mellow vibe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Candy-O'67:

Sorry, I meant, still b/p for that last comment!
Avatar 3:40pm Jeff Ash:

Greetings from Wisconsin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Jeff!
Avatar 3:42pm Jeff Ash:

I just played that Isley Brothers LP the other night. Then I played the Stylistics' "Round 2," which also has a good cover of "It's Too Late."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Funky16Corners:

I'll have to look for that one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Little Danny:

This Les McCann has a CTI vibe, kinda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Funky16Corners:

Excellent album all the way through. It does have that vibe. Yusef Lateef on flute.
Avatar 3:46pm TDK60:

Got to see McCann once.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Funky16Corners:

No kidding? In what kind of band?
Avatar 3:48pm TDK60:

It was his band, Central Park around '71!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Funky16Corners:

Nice!
Avatar 3:48pm still b/p:

Wishing you luck and mercy from the conditions, candy-o. Keeping some full containers of water ready?
Avatar 3:52pm TDK60:

Good luck, Candy O. Can you drain pipes to empty water? Maybe too late?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm doctorjazz:

Hi, Testifiers! Just got home (office closed early), let's me listen to the show on the stereo for a change, very nice!
Avatar 3:57pm Jeff Ash:

Perseverance rover has landed on Mars! Way to go, NASA!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Doc!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Funky16Corners:

@Jeff - Cool! I hope to check up on it when I get back upstairs. I hope my sons were watching.
Avatar 3:59pm StringOFperils:

Oh yeah, the Mars landing. Great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Candy-O'67:

TDK60, everything is frozen and has been for days. I have my faucets open on the cold side for them to drain when it starts melting. A handyman friend told me to do that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Funky16Corners:

My wife and sons were watching. She just texted me. Said it was amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Candy-O'67:

Still b/p, yes, containers full and bathtub full to boil more water if need be. City put out an order for everyone to do that now.
Avatar 4:08pm TDK60:

Never heard later Chad M. || I heard Perseverance will be the first machine to record sound on Mars.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm Funky16Corners:

@TDK - That album doesn't turn up much but it's really good. Lots of interesting covers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Funky16Corners:

This song suggests to me that the National Gallery had heard 'Pow R Toc H' by Pink Floyd
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Funky16Corners:

Joe Farrell, soprano sax, Hubert Laws, flute, Jack DeJohnette, drums, and Don Sebesky, piano/vocal on this track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm Funky16Corners:

Ron Carter on bass...
Avatar 4:27pm Sem:

Trying the last cover of this tune i've heard.
Coming up blank...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Funky16Corners:

I've played a few here, Morgana King, Junior Parker...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm Funky16Corners:

I did an all-Revolver show a few years ago: wfmu.org...
Avatar 4:29pm Sem:

...so, maybe not David Lee Roth?
Just checked stereogum for some covers.
Hendrix, apparently, for one. And Roth, for some reason I cannot fathom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Funky16Corners:

WHAAAA?????
Avatar 4:30pm TDK60:

I recall being a teen and hearing "T.N.K." for the first time at the end of that album. I was mesmerized and stunned!
Avatar 4:32pm TDK60:

..(the original, that is. hee.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Funky16Corners:

It's a pretty life-changing tune, especially in the context of the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Funky16Corners:

I looked up that DLR album. It's weird. Has three Savoy Brown covers on it.
Avatar 4:36pm Sem:

David Lee Roth: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Rick from SC:

This TNK version is amazing. I can’t believe I hadn’t heard it before
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Funky16Corners:

@Rick - Cool album if you ever see it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Little Danny:

Always on the lookout for versions of "Tomorrow Never Knows," that was one of my faves!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Rick from SC:

My favorite TNK version is 801 Live
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Funky16Corners:

That Steve Marcus LP also features 'Half a Heart', the song that the sax line from Baker Street is stolen from.
Avatar 4:42pm still b/p:

Because of its trippiness, I sometimes misrecollect and think TNK is on Sgt. Pepper. And then correct self, "No...Within You Without You is the Pepper trippy track," or at least differently trippy from the others. The 801 version is a good one!
Avatar 4:44pm TDK60:

I was talking with DJ Bob Brainen a few weeks back about how the Byrds' Mr Tambourine Man threw me off, could only daydream in class for a week. TNK did the same. || I'm more a Revolver guy than a Pepper. But Beatles 65 is the best. Hoo!)
  4:47pm ike p:

good evening and thanks for a great show as always, particularly with headphones of course :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm Funky16Corners:

There's nothing like having your musical brain rewired. I had those moments when I first heard Nick Drake, Velvet Underground, 13th Floor Elevators, Thelonious Monk, Coltrane, and many more. Still looking for them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Ike!
Avatar 4:49pm Erica:

Sorry for being so silent. Been feeling a bit funny. Plus this music is very relaxing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm Funky16Corners:

No problem! It's supposed to be!
Avatar 4:54pm Vincent The Soul Chef:

Thank you... I needed the relaxation *waits for the archive patiently*
