Your DJ Speaks             
Ginny Arnell  Dumbhead   Options Meet Ginny Arnell  LP  "S&M Girl Singers: Ginny Arnell was a little more like Lesley Gore, but what an angle on the world; her most famous line is "I'm a Dumbhead, Dumbhead, Stupid Little Girl ... Won't somebody beat my head against the wall?" - Jello 
0:00:16 (Pop-up)
Ginny Arnell  I Wish I Had a Dress To Wear   Options Meet Ginny Arnell  LP  "Another low-self esteem "classic" is "I Wish I Knew What Dress to Wear" -- even though she knows nobody will dance with her at the prom." - Jello 
0:02:35 (Pop-up)
Dion McGregor  Val   Options The Dream World Of Dion McGregor (He Talks In His Sleep)  LP  "He was a talent agent from the '50's who had a habit of talking in his sleep. He recorded these loopy, what would have been called "acid-damaged" monologues if they hadn't happened a decade earlier. A longtime classic." - Jello 
0:05:12 (Pop-up)
48 Girls  Let's Get A Little Sentimental   Options Taking Off (Original Sound Track Album)  LP  Soundtracks: "Taking Off, a movie by Milos Forman, is a soundtrack album featuring songs written and performed by female teenage runaways." - Jello 
0:09:15 (Pop-up)
Carly Simon  Long Term Physical Effects   Options Taking Off (Original Sound Track Album)  LP  "It's much darker and rougher than most folk music of the time. It also contains an early Carly Simon track and a song by Buck Henry." - Jello

Buck Henry  Stranger In Paradise   Options Taking Off (Original Sound Track Album)  LP   
0:13:48 (Pop-up)

0:19:05 (Pop-up)
Glenn Meadmore  Lovin' In My Oven   Options Chicken and Biscuits  MP3  "Glenn Meadmore's music is more cow-punk now, but check out his first LP, Chicken and Biscuits. It mixes hard-craking drum machine and loud violins. In a deliberately obnoxious voice that Peter Ivers would be proud of, he sings songs like "Lovin' In My Oven"... Jello 
0:23:07 (Pop-up)
Paul Vanase  Sissy   Options The World of Baby Bones  LP  "...An earlier example from '75, Paul Vanase's The World of Baby Bones, has songs like ..."Sissy" and "Sticking Needles Through Paper Doll Eyes." - Jello

Paul Vanase  Sticking Needles Through Paper Doll Eyes   Options The World of Baby Bones  LP  "Paul has a giant Fu Manchu moustache that dips four inches below his chin, glued-on felt triangle eyebrows that arch over the top of his shaved head, and wears a silver lounge suit cut into Flintstone-points at the bottom." - Jello 
0:29:09 (Pop-up)
Jack Turner  Nightmare   Options 45 Single  45  Jack Turner: "Nightmare." "Aside from having the most psychedelic-sounding steel guitar of the '50's, it also has surreal Dali-esque Hitchcock dream vision lyrics - The Cramps should cover this one." - Jello 
0:32:01 (Pop-up)
Lofty's Zzebra    Original Afro-Fusion Music  LP  Black Psychedelia: "The cover of Lofty's Zzebra: Original Afro-Fusion Music shows Lofty wearing striped platform boots up to his knees, a chapaleta over one arm and loud polyester vest and marching pants, standing amidst some trees gesturing fairly angrily at the Gods. Musically, the opening track is bluegrass!" - Jello 
0:34:07 (Pop-up)
Damn Sam the Miracle Man and the Soul Congregation  Give Me Another Joint   Options Damn Sam the Miracle Man and the Soul Congregation  MP3  "...Another experimental black record out of Detroit is this one by Damn Sam the Miracle Man (a former nursing-home choir director from Selma, Alabama) and the Soul Congregation. It opens with "Give Me Another Joint," and has rather puzzling, elliptical liner notes." - Jello 
0:40:33 (Pop-up)
Fred Kuehn & Light  Great Lord Lucifer   Options Song of Gods Gone Mad  LP  Satanic Folk Music: "Fred Kuehn and Light recorded Song of Gods Gone Mad. You've heard of satanic heavy-metal, but how about this genre?" - Jello 
0:44:38 (Pop-up)
The New Life, Mike Curb  Psychedelic Rape   Options Sings The Sidehackers  LP  Pseudo-Psychedelic: "New Life Sings the Side-hackers (Ameret) blends rock, psychedelic plus a full orchestra. They had the nerve to title an eerie, long Hitchcock scare piece "Psychedelic Rape." - Jello 
0:47:54 (Pop-up)
Kings Road  Whipping Post   Options Watkins Glen  LP  "...After Woodstock, a Crown-type label releashed a fake Woodstock album, Watkins Glen, which covered songs like "Whipping Post" by the Allman Bros, "Up on Cripple Creek," and other pseudo-Nuggets complete with rock festival crowd noise dubbed in." - Jello 
0:52:16 (Pop-up)
Watkins Glen  Up on Cripple Creek   Options Watkins Glen  LP   
0:55:00 (Pop-up)
Toby Rean & The Common People  Outa Space   Options Outa Space  LP  "Another all-time wonderful Crown atrocity is Outa Space! by Toby Rean & The Common People. The cover art is psychedelic but the record has nothing to do with psych or space." - Jello 
0:58:47 (Pop-up)
Toby Rean & The Common People  Request For Discharge   Options Outa Space  LP  "After butchering a Billy Preston hit (Outa Space), the band plays all country-western, ending with a hilarious weeper about a Vietnam Vet who returns home just as the baby he's never seen croaks from crib death!" - Jello 
1:02:03 (Pop-up)
Ricky Vale & His Surfers  Ghost Surfin' Parts 1 & 2   Options Everybody's Surfin'  LP  "Strand Records, who put out a lot of ethnic material, released Ricky Vale & His Surfers. The cover, which shows three prepubescent kids, claims this is the band, but the LP sounds like space-psyche-jazz jams on surf tunes. It only has three songs per side, but each is double the length of most rock'n'roll instrumentals. Very ethereal and well done." - Jello 
1:08:11 (Pop-up)
The Psychedelic Seeds  Psychotic Reaction   Options The Electric Piano Playground  LP  "Bell Records: The Electric Piano Playground by The Psychedelic Seeds may have been intended for children: it's Ferrante and Teicher piano experiments put through various effects. " - Jello 
1:12:38 (Pop-up)
The Psychedelic Seeds  Tobacco Road   Options The Electric Piano Playground  LP  "They cover "Psychotic Reaction" and "Tobacco Road," among others." - Jello 
1:17:00 (Pop-up)
Hall & Reasons  Orbiting   Options Spaceship  LP  Outer Space: "Spaceship by Hall & Reasons, two dorky-looking guys in polyester '70's shirts, is a NASA tribute." - Jello 
1:20:43 (Pop-up)
Hall and Reasons  Spaceship   Options Spaceship  LP  "The music is fairly decent heavy-psych, but the packaging must be seen to be believed." - Jello 
1:23:18 (Pop-up)
Bull Durham  Happy SAC Warrior   Options Songs of the Strategic Air Command  LP  Military: "Bull Durham's Songs of the Strategic Air Command includes "Happy SAC Warrior," "Hang Down Your Boom, Ross Cooley," "Home on the Pad," and many more." - Jello 
1:25:55 (Pop-up)
Bill Durham  Hang Down Your Boom, Ross Cooly   Options Songs of the Strategic Air Command  LP   
1:28:41 (Pop-up)
Bill Durham  Home On the Pad   Options Songs of the Strategic Air Command  LP   
1:32:43 (Pop-up)
The Incredible Bongo Band  Bongo Rock   Options   MP3  "Exotica-Ploitation had not quite died in '73: The Incredible Bongo Band released "Bongo Rock," "Dueling Bongos," and "In-A-Gadda-Davida." - Jello 
1:38:03 (Pop-up)
Incredible Bongo Band  Dueling Bongos   Options   MP3

Perry Botkin, Jr.  Nadia's Theme (The Young And The Restless)   Options Nadia's Theme (The Young And The Restless)  MP3  "The man behind this was Perry Botkin, Jr. who plagued us with "Nadia's Theme" later on ..." - Jello 
1:51:26 (Pop-up)
Damon  The Road of Life   Options Song of a Gypsy    "An example of exotica-folk-rock is Song of a Gypsy, released by a gypsy singer, Damon. For blending atmospheres, this is an all-time great!" - Jello 
1:54:13 (Pop-up)
Bobby Brown  Tiny Wind Of Shanol   Options Enlightening Beam of Axonda    "...In Southern California in the late '70s, Bobby Brown, a blonde guy who build all his own instruments, put out at least three albums which revived the '50's exotica feeling." - Jello

Hello, BC, and the disembodied.
Avatar 2:50pm BC Sterrett:

Hey there Sem!
Avatar 2:53pm BC Sterrett:

Thank you for confirming that the comments are working. My wife couldn't get one through!
Avatar 2:55pm Sem:

Happy to help, even inadvertently.
The Allman Bros. must have heard a lot of covers of Whipping Post...
Avatar 2:58pm BC Sterrett:

I can't imagine how weird it would be to hear so many people covering your song
Avatar 2:58pm BC Sterrett:

This reminds me of all those fake covers on songs on aerobic records
Avatar 3:00pm Sem:

Can't say I have any experience in that genre but really, how hard would it be to fake a disco-beat song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm Otis:

Hi BC. Tuned alongside work here today. Sounding Far Out!
Avatar 3:04pm Sem:

Give me a Red Sovine weeper any day.

Hi Chresti :)
Avatar 3:05pm BC Sterrett:

Hi Otis :)
Avatar 3:05pm BC Sterrett:

Is this originally a Red Sovine track?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm StringOFperils:

Hi! This sounds deep and meaningful. And dubious.
Avatar 3:08pm Sem:

Not to my knowledge. This one is from amateur hour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm spodiodi:

hi BC! glad to be listening
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm chresti:

Hi Sem! Hi spodi!

Haven't seen you in a while. Thanks for saying "Hey" :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm notsoKWYET:

Music to finish a 90 hr week to! …. so jazzed to be here
Avatar 3:18pm BC Sterrett:

90 hr week! Whew...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm fred:

Speaking of things that don't quite fit, I got a box that barely fit in my mailbox today. Inside was a single magazine issue (book sized), with a lot of packing paper. They could have fit a dozen in there (it usually comes in a cardboard envelope)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm notsoKWYET:

yea --- this job is outta fucking control
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm notsoKWYET:

listening on my work computer laptop speakers and this sounds oddly really amazing
Avatar 3:25pm BC Sterrett:

Thanks notso, people complained that I was too quiet last week. Hopefully these levels are ok
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm fred:

@BC: Does the back cover pic (for Orbiting) show you actually holding a copy of that record?
Avatar 3:28pm BC Sterrett:

Fred, sometimes I wonder if people grab the only free box available when they mail stuff.
Avatar 3:28pm BC Sterrett:

Yes, it does Fred. I couldn't find the back cover on discogs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm notsoKWYET:

I need beer
Avatar 3:31pm BC Sterrett:

I bet Bull Durham drank a lot of beer while recording this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm fred:

@BC@3:28: WFMU often does, my swag usually comes in a box that still says it contains a DJ's T-shirts or CDs
Avatar 3:33pm BC Sterrett:

"Wing Weenies?"
Avatar 3:34pm BC Sterrett:

Ha. Sometimes, when people order Cool and Strange Music issues from me, I send them in record boxes, because that's all I got here sometimes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm fred:

@BC@3:31: Maybe not just while recording
Avatar 3:40pm BC Sterrett:

Next week is probably the final Jello Biafra themed episode.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm fred:

An influential record in hip-hop history
Avatar 3:41pm BC Sterrett:

If I can fit it all in!
Avatar 3:41pm Sem:

I got a bunch of swag in a Mr. Coffee box once. Only the small address label and the customs declaration to mar it. Nice.
Avatar 3:42pm BC Sterrett:

I didn't know that Fred! This is one of the few records from this section that I don't have. I can imagine lots of samples taken from this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm notsoKWYET:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm fred:

The break from Apache was used by Kool Herc and others to give an extended rhythmic part for early B-boys (with two copies of the record)
Avatar 3:48pm BC Sterrett:

Holy cow this is a long track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm notsoKWYET:

I always loved that line (about the Iron Butterfly version) on the Simpsons when bart changes the sheet music at church …. "Hey marge... remember when we used to make out to this hymn"
Avatar 3:49pm BC Sterrett:

I remember that episode!
Avatar 3:50pm BC Sterrett:

I like the story about how this song was really called "In The Garden of Eden" but the guy who wrote it was drunk while singing the riff and the band thought it sounded like the title it is today. Did I get that story right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Oh wow, I remember hearing Nadia's Theme a LOT on top 40 radio back in the day. It was weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm spodiodi:

i know it from my aunts watching soap operas
Avatar 3:57pm BC Sterrett:

When that song came on, I knew it was time to change the channel as a kid.
Avatar 3:58pm BC Sterrett:

This will probably be my last track this week. Thanks for listening! We'll continue this next week :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm spodiodi:

haha... thanks for the music, BC!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm fred:

Thanks BC!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm chresti:

Thanks BC!
Avatar 3:59pm BC Sterrett:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Otis:

Thanks BC! Great show!!
Avatar 4:01pm BC Sterrett:

Thanks Otis :) Until next time....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Otis:

Hopefully next week I can chat more. Love that Nadia's Theme (it's a Torch is Burning fav!!)
