Happy New Year Joe McG and thanks for all that you do at WFMU! beautiful track by Omar Khorshid. (and, hey all you hippies, it is a "snow day" here (meaning, some icy sleet might hit the pavement) is there some kind of marijuana that smells like cat pee? My apartment is reeking and I'm nauseous)

Perfect accompaniment to a grey-streaked, forlorn winter morning, hoping there’ll be some snow soon around NYC. Made pancakes in anticipation…

Looks like the snow is missing NYC entirely -- well, except for the southern tip of SI.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:52am Webhamster Henry:

I was the original WFMU playlist system. DJs who cared emailed me their lists, which I reformatted and put on the website. (A few did their own web work though).
Avatar 🎸 9:52am TDK60:

I still have that Bobby Fripp LP. Played a dancey-trancey track at a partee a while back and the kids were surprised at its year of recording. (1980?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53am Phillippe:

Hey Handy! Coming down thick and wet here. In the immortal words of Lucy Van Pelt: it's pitch white outside!
  9:53am Miss G:

Thank you for your service Webhamster Henry! (very pretty snow in RVA right now, coating the tree branches, so nice with this bed music)
  9:55am Zinn The Mood:

Is that right, HH? What a lame winter so far…
Could use a bit of glow to chase away some of this pandemic gloom. As fleeting as it might be I’d take it.
  9:56am P-90:

That Khoroshid is from 1974? Wow.,could have been made in 2020. I think ‘74 was the same year Steve Howe recorded his maniacally energetic flamenco-style electric guitar solo on the Yes tune Sound Chaser.
Avatar 9:57am Faye:

Happy new year Joe! I really loved that first set.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:58am Webhamster Henry:

Looking forward to a set of the best music so far in 2022.

Happy new year to ya, Joe McG! The whole accuaplylist, comments board and archiving.... all magic to a long-time WFMU listener like myself. I was one of those dorks in the '80s who would write down info while listening to the DJ doing the back announce. If I missed certain back announce info, I would call the station and ask the DJ. Bill Kelly and Bob Brainen were quite patient with this teenager!
Avatar 10:00am Joe B:

correct Joe, on the hello nasty album
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:01am Handy Haversack:

Hey, Phillippe! Nice! As Zinn said, we were kind of looking forward to some winter weather other than just gray. But here we are. Zinn, the only thing redeeming this winter around here is the new kittens. At least we can watch them.

(As I stanch the bleeding from the kittens' thinking I was being a touch slow with breakfast.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01am drr:

I emailed Irwin Chusid to ask about a song I'd heard maybe ten years earlier, and he identified it from a description, even though it wasn't his show (it was on The Old Codger, I believe).
Avatar 10:01am Joe McG:

Hey Mike! happy new year to you! Thanks everyone for the Beastie Boys confirmation. I'm pretty unfamiliar, I'm sorry to say, with most of their stuff.

Bear - even while setting up huge walls of speakers - was insistent about getting the right mikes aimed in the right direction at the right distance, rather than fixing the sound with EQs and the like. I don't know why I know this, maybe it's something I aspire to.

I guess we will find out if "McVicar" is the B-side of "Free Me"--which is the single I remember from the film's soundtrack. Maybe it was another single. I know nobody who has seen the movie. Daltrey never made too many other movies which would imply that his acting skills were limited.

Loved hearing The Butterfly Collector while my old yellow vinyl single gathers dust.
As for The One Thing, that was def. an MTV & radio hit, and I think the video (scruffy guys crashing a posh pool party?) was my introduction to the band in that first year of music video immersion
They won me over with sound, not looks
Mark Goodman was often stoned as I recall

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11:17am Threemoons 🌛🌕🌜:

And yeah, dreary out there. Sudden drops in pressure/temps over the past few days playing with my sinuses; gonna make some more hot tea in a bit. On a positive note: I took a shipment on Saturday from these guys: www.t-wetea.com . Truly fantastic and interesting teas of all types, including tisanes and blends with coffee beans added. I highly recommend any of their chai blends (which are always on rotation) for chai fans. One of my favorite blends has a bit of coffee bean in it - BiCurious George! They also include a handwritten note with a bit of nice snark with every order.

Avatar 🎸 11:26am Son Of Pantz:

One of my favorite Tony Randall moments was when he was on Carson (back when they still smoked on set) and Dean Martin was on. Tony said, "Lips that touch cigarettes will never touch mine." And Dean Martin said, "There's no danger of that, Tony".
