YOUR DJ SPEAKS             
Bobby Brown  Tiny Wind Of Shanol   Options Enlightening Beam of Axonda  LP  "...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 
0:00:30 (Pop-up)
Bobby Brown  Bray   Options Enlightening Beam of Axonda    "He claimed to have a 6-octave voice and recorded many of his pieces outdoors. He'd be playing one instrument with his hands while playing another with his feet. his best one is titled Enlightening Beam of Axonda." - Jello 
0:05:46 (Pop-up)
Evelyn Evans  The Holy City   Options Whistling Solos    Whistling: "Out of Kalamazoo, Michigan, comes a religious whistling record by Evelyn Evans. Over an organ accompaniment, she produces warbly, yodeling effects." - Jello 
0:09:31 (Pop-up)
Bob Garrett  News Report KOLD-TV Tucson in the late 1970's   Options Youtube Audio    "Tucson, Arizona produced Two Sides of Bob Garrett." - Jello 
0:14:52 (Pop-up)
Bob Garrett  Think I'll Become a Nark   Options Two Sides of Bob Garrett    "The cover shows him in a fringed prom suit and bow tie posed between hanging slabs of meat." - Jello 
0:15:29 (Pop-up)
Bob Garrett  You Can Take Your Love and Shove It up the North End of a Gila Monster Heading South   Options Two Sides of Bob Garrett  LP  "Songs include "Foldout Teenage Queen of Puberty," "Think I'll Become a Nark," "You Can Take Love and Shove It Up the North End of a Gila Monster Heading South," etc." - Jello

Lumbee  The Whole World Is Sunny Upside Down   Options Overdose  LP  (Featured album cover on top of page 54) My favorite track on this record. - Your DJ 
0:16:46 (Pop-up)
Dane Sturgeon  Queen Bee   Options Wild 'n' Tender  LP  "California's Central Valley produced the D.I.Y.: Wild 'N' Tender's Righteous Folk-Rock (in a stone groove). Musically, it's like Del Shannon singing with Joe Meek's Blue Men on the moon. Judging from their Mannix villain '70's cowboy garb, I doubt this was intentional. This was recorded by Don Ralke, an early '60's pop producer." - Jello 
0:19:45 (Pop-up)
Don Bradshaw-Leather  Distance Between Us (Part 1)   Options Distance Between Us  LP  Organ: "A grim, sinister, solo organ record was made by Don Bradshaw-Leather, Distance Between Us. On the cover he looks like he's covered his face, hair, everything, with blackish-gray makeup." - Jello

Lumbee  Streets of Gold   Options Overdose Album and Game  LP  Drug-Ploitation: "Not only were pseudo-psychedelic records produced, but this production possibly tops everything: Overdose: album and game (!), credited to Lumbee, on a Philadelphia label. It's a hip monopoly game for drug dealers, and places you can land include Sunset Strip, a crash pad, and overdose place, and Saigon. The cards you might be dealt (all of which show a skull with crossed hypodermic needles Jolly Roger-style) include "You ate the evidence," "Get out of jail free," "Pay off fuzz $200," "Overdose: go to crash pad, miss one turn," "Advance to Indian reservation - get wrecked on peyote," and my favorite: "Your friend dies froms overdose - you inherit his dope and collect $100." The music is more Sergio Mendez-like, but what a game!" - Jello (This is the track that was released as an 7" single in 1970) - Your DJ

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm WR:

popping in for a few minutes while on wrk break. show looks very interesting, will circle back for an archive listen late tonight.
Avatar 2:37pm BC Sterrett:

Hi WR :) Thanks for stopping by!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm WR:

Don Bradshaw-Leather cover pic so wild and the sound is basic proto-new age.
Avatar 2:40pm BC Sterrett:

Ha! It's a 4 sided album of this stuff :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm WR:

I write proto- because the jazz and classical techniques still sound like their origins, not fully merged into something new.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm WR:

i have this album from Ananda Shankar, will get others if reasonably priced.
Avatar 2:46pm BC Sterrett:

That was just a 3rd movement, most of the album is just sinister scary organ music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm fred:

Hello BC and all, as I end what should be my last day working from home
Avatar 2:48pm BC Sterrett:

That Ananda Shankar was bought on my first thrift store record buying trip. 95 cents!
Avatar 2:48pm BC Sterrett:

Hi Fred :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm WR:

good find. Hello Fred, bye Fred and BC, break over. Laters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Otis:

Hi BC. Just tuned in,.
Avatar 2:52pm BC Sterrett:

Bye WR, Hi Otis!
Avatar 2:52pm BC Sterrett:

Doing a Ananda Shankar power set
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Otis:

Waiting to find this Ananda & his Music LP in a second hand shop for a good price. Lucked out with the first one a few years back at a thrift.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Otis:

Until that day... if it ever arrives, super happy with digital. Love Shankar.
Avatar 2:56pm BC Sterrett:

I know his records have now become crazy expensive!...like most all vinyl these days...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Otis:

Totally. I really just know the first 3, the ones you have played. I am looking at Discogs now and so many recordings past 1977, bookmarked to follow up on later, surely must be some later gems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Otis:

Ha, and now you play an album I do not know. My 'Musical Discover' continues. Thanks BC!
  2:59pm Feldpausch:

I’ve been just listening and not saying a word is that creepy?
Avatar 2:59pm BC Sterrett:

So creepy!!! Just kidding. Welcome :)
  3:00pm Feldpausch:

Really enjoying this just have been speechless
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Otis:

Hi Creepypausch! Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm chresti:

Hi BC and creepers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm fred:

Is it really the last installment of the Jello Biafra series?
Avatar 3:04pm BC Sterrett:

I'm stopping with this record since Jello said he had 5 and I think most of the others came out after the chapter was written.
Avatar 3:04pm Don-O:

AH! Just in time for the wallowing!!
Avatar 3:04pm BC Sterrett:

Yes. It will probably last one more show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm chresti:

ReCORD over!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm fred:

One thing I like about it is the "Incredibly Strange Music" title, when the music feels right at home here. A WFMU playbook?
Avatar 3:10pm BC Sterrett:

Hi Chresti and Don-O!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Otis:

Great series BC. True dedication to books that bent and shaped me 'incredibly'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Otis:

This is how I actually sound when I sing Nature Boy in the shower.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Otis:

Even though I think I sound like Nat King
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm chresti:

Tony Randall is incredibly strange!
Avatar 3:16pm BC Sterrett:

I feel like this book shaped much of record collecting at the time and help kickstart the lounge craze in the 90s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm chresti:

I agree, Otis and BC.
Avatar 3:23pm BC Sterrett:

Ha ha, I wanna hear Otis sing the Tony Randall Nature Boy
Avatar 3:24pm Sem:

Hi, BCS! LMA-ers! Late but keen to hear what's left of strange.

I met Tony Randall once, he was walking into a radio station I was working at, there to talk-up a local theatre appearance.
I could not believe how small a man he was.
Avatar 3:25pm BC Sterrett:

Yeah he was a tiny guy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Otis:

Maybe for the next FMU Marathon BC. I'll try my best Randall.
Avatar 3:33pm BC Sterrett:

Yes please!
Avatar 3:34pm BC Sterrett:

Hi Sem! BTW :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm solo mon:

Tiny Randall
Avatar 3:42pm BC Sterrett:

ha ha. Hi Solo Mon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm solo mon:

We all know if someone is named “Tiny” they are probably not small.
Avatar 3:50pm BC Sterrett:

Last song from this record I promise, I'm extending this final section of the chapter as far as I can to last one more show if possible.
Avatar 3:56pm Sem:

Little touch of klezmer on the side. Lovin' this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm fred:

Thanks BC!
Avatar 3:58pm BC Sterrett:

Thanks everyone. See you next time for the FINAL JELLO BIAFRA EPISODE!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm chresti:

Thanks BC! I agree with solo mon, Tinys are usually large.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Otis:

Thanks BC for the after noontunes!
Avatar 4:00pm Sem:

Thx, BCS! Later.
