Options

Instant Response  Who Has the Key   Options Modus Operandi  My favorite Utah private press synth band. They were the same age as my older brothers in high school. The lead singer I believe just lived a block away from here. 
Options
0:53:11 (Pop‑up)
Instant Response  Dance With Decision   Options Modus Operandi  I used to see lead singer Darin at church and in the community boys choir with my brothers. I believe he is now a professor at BYU. He is bottom left on the cover. 
Options
0:56:52 (Pop‑up)
Instant Response  Ugo Dreams in English   Options Modus Operandi  CurrentIy local cassette collectors are scrambling over copies of this tape. I spoke to Bruce Hill on bottom right over the phone a year ago. Apparently my brother Brett was one of their roadies helping lug equipment to play at the Classic Skating rink here in Ogden circa 1985. He also stated that there was no drummer, just four guys with keyboards. He didn't have any known copies of the album himself.

Options
1:25:43 (Pop‑up)
Instant Response  Locked in Vacancy   Options Modus Operandi  I remember one of the guys in the background of the cover photo as he was around our house now and again with my older brother. I hear a rumor that he has 3 unreleased songs from the sessions of this cassette. 
Options
1:31:03 (Pop‑up)
Instant Response  The Source   Options Modus Operandi  I believe this is a song about God. Little brother of band member Bruce Hill became a pretty successful country singer around here. That brother was in my grade. In elementary school I saw the little brother use some of these synths to perform original compositions at a 3rd grade talent show. That stuff I would LOVE to find if it was ever recorded! 
Options
1:34:38 (Pop‑up)
Instant Response  Flash To Disperse   Options Modus Operandi  These 6 songs are it from Instant Response. They graduated high school and went their separate ways. Leaving I feel one of the best bedroom synth albums I've ever heard. I've been a fan of this tape since 4th grade :)

Hi BC, here for the new waves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58pm MHLee:

Hello, I've not caught this before but I'm something of a fan of the idea of lost media myself. I spend a lot of time trying to identify mystery songs appearing on the net.
Avatar 2:00pm BC Sterrett:

Hey Otis and MHLee! Hopefully these first tracks don't scare you off. lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Oboe Fodder:

I missed the whole Clamazon catalog when it was about or maybe I'm spacing but did not register it at all until you mentioned it on Lost Media. Something I would have totally dove into. You may have mentioned it to me on a visit and I had a donut in my mouth and was distracted.
Avatar 2:05pm BC Sterrett:

It was kind of a catalog that said, if you like The Residents, you'll probably like this stuff...
Avatar 2:06pm BC Sterrett:

Identifying mysterious songs on the net is all part of Lost Media Archeology.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Oboe Fodder:

To quote the resi's... 'make me moo' Clamazon.
Avatar 2:06pm BC Sterrett:

This cd will all make sense in a minute I promise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm MHLee:

I came across a similar work in 2016. I was just checking what came up if you searched Bernie Sanders on spotify. Found a song like this called Bernie Snader-Pizza Rat or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Oboe Fodder:

Spoken interludes, check. Family photos on cover, check. Produced by Mr Wacky, check. Success.
Avatar 2:11pm BC Sterrett:

Those things were a win for me as well!
Avatar 2:12pm BC Sterrett:

I gave Irwin a copy of this back in the day. It looks like it has gotten a bit of WFMU airplay in the past.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Oboe Fodder:

Next week is the last show for Lost Media correct? Until you return one day in the future...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Oboe Fodder:

Nice, go Irwin!
Avatar 2:12pm BC Sterrett:

Yes. I still have not idea what the last show will be like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Oboe Fodder:

More Lost and Found media.
Avatar 2:14pm BC Sterrett:

Yes and maybe just a lot of favorite odds and ends
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Oboe Fodder:

Oh wow, flashback... writing Found just remembered the NPR show Lost & Found Sound. Need to revisit that one again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Oboe Fodder:

Next week I will dig out your set on FP from 2010 and that interview we did on WGN in Chicago in 2005.
Avatar 2:17pm BC Sterrett:

aww. I hope it's good. lol. Gonna attempt a cassette now.
Avatar 2:20pm BC Sterrett:

A cover of Joy Division?
Avatar 2:22pm BC Sterrett:

I don't remember this track. ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Oboe Fodder:

This is great!
Avatar 2:27pm BC Sterrett:

There are more tracks than I remember. My original timed plan may be thrown off. Oh well... lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm MHLee:

I'm back
Avatar 2:29pm BC Sterrett:

Welcome back MH :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm solo mon:

Cool Tapes!
Avatar 2:30pm BC Sterrett:

Hi Solo. Thanks :)
Avatar 2:31pm BC Sterrett:

This tape gets even better later on when they SING!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm MHLee:

Have you ever heard of the Most Mysterious Song on the Internet www.rollingstone.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm MHLee:

There's a community around it looking for it and other songs. I prefer the search for the other songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm MHLee:

This reminds me of the DEVO work for Rugrats
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Oboe Fodder:

Nice MHL, did not know about this Mysterious Music, reading now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm solo mon:

Is it live or is it Memorex????
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Oboe Fodder:

Maxell XL-IIs High-Bias for you Solo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm solo mon:

So Hi DEF, I can feel the knife in my eye.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Oboe Fodder:

I love this tape.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm solo mon:

Sorry, ON my eye.
Avatar 2:40pm BC Sterrett:

ha ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Oboe Fodder:

I'm intervening and changing 'on' to 'beside' because I care.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41pm solo mon:

un chien andalou
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm solo mon:

Let’s change knife to cotton ball.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm MHLee:

I'm working on getting a blues show together in the other room... some of the tracks I'm playing originate on BEWARE OF THE BLOG
Avatar 2:43pm BC Sterrett:

I was gonna be part of Beware the Blog but the technical learning curve was too complicated for me at the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm MHLee:

I feel you. I just started a blogspot about two weeks ago (not officially launched yet) and I have no idea what I'm doing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm MHLee:

That made me jump
Avatar 2:49pm BC Sterrett:

When the oboe came in? lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm MHLee:

Yeah, I though it was a car alarm!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Oboe Fodder:

I would pre-order tickets to catch Dan Plonsey live.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm solo mon:

Oboe scarier than a knife beside your eye.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm chresti:

Hi BC and lost party!
Avatar 3:08pm BC Sterrett:

Hi Chresti! Just in time for more Oboe music :)
Avatar 3:10pm BC Sterrett:

I would be front row to see Dan Plonsey perform this album as well Otis! (with ear plugs of coarse)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Little Danny:

I am digging these tones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm fred:

Hi BC and all. I guess you could get a show out of the calls you made to people who didn't (want to) remember these records/tapes
Avatar 3:19pm BC Sterrett:

Hey Fred and Danny! Sorry was on the phone. Yeah the guy didn't seem to keen on talking about this tape.
Avatar 3:20pm BC Sterrett:

This is the better side of the tape. Love these vocals and lyrics :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Mr Fab:

Ah, they gave out their names! Was wondering how you were able to track one of em down, w/no info on the tape. I was like, damn, BC's gooood..
Avatar 3:27pm BC Sterrett:

ha ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm fred:

Well, BC's indeed good, but as a DJ, maybe not as a sleuth
Avatar 3:34pm BC Sterrett:

I found someone who knew one of them so it wasn't too hard.
Avatar 3:35pm BC Sterrett:

I was the guy who found the cast of Troll 2 however and held the first cast reunion. The documentary didn't want to tell my story however.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm fred:

What?! They didn't think it was about you?
Avatar 3:37pm BC Sterrett:

I did have to hire a private investigator to help me find the mom however.
Avatar 3:38pm BC Sterrett:

The child actor had something against me maybe. Who knows. I helped him out finding most of the other actors none-the-less.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm fred:

I can understand how that could help in the future: "either tell me who the other band members were on that tape, or I'll get a private investigator track down your mom and ask her for background"
Avatar 3:41pm BC Sterrett:

Ha.
Avatar 3:41pm BC Sterrett:

Ready for more Oboe Music?
Avatar 3:44pm BC Sterrett:

I was talking about the actress who played the mom in Troll 2 if there was any confusion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Oboe Fodder:

"I have come here to put in earplugs and listen to oboe... and I'm all out of earplugs" - They Lived or something or other
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Mr Fab:

LOL^^
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Oboe Fodder:

Is this the start of the "Now That's What I Call Oboe!" series? Please, no. However, I would enjoy an all "Top of the Pops - Oboe Edition" covering Bowie, Slade and the like orchestred by, I dunno... Paul Mauriat and Percy Faith?
Avatar 3:50pm BC Sterrett:

Please play Katie Perry and Taylor Swift on this Oboe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Oboe Fodder:

BC, you know how to close out a show with a blow (disguised as a bang)!
Avatar 3:51pm BC Sterrett:

Looks like I have time to play the last couple tracks off this. See everyone next week for the final show next week :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Oboe Fodder:

I'll be here when it's there. Have a great week BC!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Mr Fab:

gonna really miss this show...
Avatar 3:52pm BC Sterrett:

Thanks Mr. Oboe Fodder!
Avatar 3:53pm BC Sterrett:

I'll still be around now and again for more randomness probably ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm fred:

What? Final show?
Avatar 3:54pm BC Sterrett:

Yeah, had to make a choice to focus on some important life stuff like taking care of my parents, teaching another class, finishing a book, focusing on trying to have children etc etc.
Avatar 3:55pm BC Sterrett:

I've played my all my fave tracks on this CD, I don't remember what this other stuff sounds like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm fred:

Hope you'll find time to fill-in/pop-in once in a while
Avatar 3:57pm BC Sterrett:

Me too!
Avatar 3:58pm Don-O:

I'm a sucker for ANY track with cheap Casio drum machine!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm fred:

I think I understand what a time-suck a regular show can be, so thanks for what you gave us
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm chresti:

How about 'Shittyflute Meets the Oboe"?
Avatar 4:00pm BC Sterrett:

You should record it Chresti!
Avatar 4:01pm BC Sterrett:

Thanks Fred. It wasn't a fun decision. See everyone next time, if you're around of course :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm chresti:

Thanks BC! Have a good break! Come back soon!
Avatar 4:02pm BC Sterrett:

I will definitely try!
