Options January 24, 2022: Interview with Karina Gill
Olivia welcomes Karina Gill (of Cindy and Flowertown) for a quick conversation about how "being good at things" in the conventional way can get in the way, how special a community can be for music, and how making music isn't rocket science - in fact, some of the best music is the simplest.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Carmichael:

Room temp, Handy. Woodstock's is the place for pizza in Davis. Cenario makes "east coast style" pizza and, suprisingly, a greek restaurant called Symposium has a decent pie.

I'm in Sacramento. The 2 standouts are Wenelli's and Mark & Monica's. Nothing else sizes up.

Also, if you're from the east coast, pizza out here is much different. Medium thick crust and LOTS of toppings. Have I mentioned the pineapple?
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Handy Haversack:

One for the ages, Yes.
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 3:13pm listener 126464:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm ChukAmok:

Is pineapple a suitable filling for ravioli?
  3:23pm Marie:

I worked with someone who felt strongly that a pizza should never have more than 3 "toppings" (I hate that word, not sure why)

Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Niall:

@morphe': Still around, hi?
Avatar 3:26pm HyperDose:

Makes sense from a culinary standpoint, Marie. A lot of people don't lightly sautee their vegetables before putting them on pizza. They end up secreting too much moisture, so the cheese doesn't fully cook.

Ravioliolios, hi hiya to all! Take us away, Oliviolio
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 3:29pm karlward:

I see NJ pizza as (usually) inferior to NY pizza. Chicago pizza seems more like a casserole to me. I have never had Chicago pizza though.
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 3:31pm karlward:

ChukAmok: I don't eat shellfish. I hear the white clam pizza is popular there. I have had the no-mozzarella style New Haven pizza.

@dicia, I used to live across the street from Luigi's when I was in college. New York style, with the bubbles in the crust.

Are you also in California?
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 3:32pm YETI BOB:

karlward: that is a deep question. there may in fact be a connection. but i just meant, having been born in NJ and lived for decades in Chicago, those are the places i think have the best pizza (outside of Naples)

hey Phillippe! in siberia they convert to burn "wood gas", whatever that means

i've had more than enough crappy pizza in nyc, for the record.
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Niall:

Ooo oo there's a place near Cold Spring that makes my favorite apple cider doughnuts, hands down. Where'd you get them? -oh.
  3:34pm Marie:

Having grown up just outside of Chicago, I grew up with pizza that had a thin, crispy crust that was cut into squares made by people who were first or second generation from Italy--the "stuffed" pizza and those thick bready slices associated with Chicago-style, I don't like.
Avatar 3:35pm HyperDose:

@queems I think they were little plushies on clips. So yeah, they were quite literally hanging out!

I also strongly disapprove of floppy crusts. But I am a fan of the fold and eat with your head tilted sideways.

Yay, Hectorine!

I can't endorse that cracker-crust Chicago-style pizza, I'm afraid.

My favorite Chicago pizza is an NY-style pie from Dante's near Logan Square. God I ordered from them so often, my dog would perk up whenever my phone rang.

we love the stuffed pizzas from Zachary's in the east bay over here. stuffed spinach and mushroom? yes, please! :)

HyperDose: 100% agree with that assessment. Chicago has good pizza but if we are talking about states, I'd never say Illinois was a great pizza state ...

Michael: Oh yeah the pizza in Rome is fantastic! There are a few Roman-style places in Chicago that I love (Pizza Metro, Bonci).

i may have shared before, but when complimenting the pizza in Rome to a few cops (who turned out be Napoli), we were admonished to no end.

I do love a good stuffed spinach mushroom pizza now and then. Edwardo's was a place that makes great ones. Gotta get back to work now...
Avatar 3:41pm HyperDose:

Did they take you "downtown", Chris?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Phillippe:

There's a local pizza chain here called Ledos that makes a rectangular pizza with an evenly spaced out array of thick cut pepperoni so you know where to cut the squares. Order it with sausage and they just might perch a crumble of sausage on top of the pepperoni like a greasy little adornment.

My Brazilian father in law was horrified by what we consider to be very good local pizza. Crust too thick, sauce too sweet, toppings too few. Granted, Sao Paulo pizza is pretty good, it's just a different ball game

I miss the pizza you put in your toaster. I think it was Buttoni 🍕
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 3:45pm tim from washington:

Let me dispel this "Detroit-style" pizza for yous guys. Detroit style pizza actually originates from Cottage Inn in Ann Arbor (which is not Detroit). It's a thicker crust rectangular pizza. It's mighty good but it's not "Detroit' style. Any pizza I've ever ate in Detroit (and I've eaten a lot of pizza in Detroit) is round and has crust of normal thickness.
Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Handy Haversack:

I fully believe that there's great pizza in NJ, but I doubt I will ever access any. What gets talked about is all in this town or that town, and hard experience tells me that the only thing within walking distance of a train station in NJ is WFMU. Car pizza. Inaccessible. Stories whispered on the playlists of my mind.

I like the ingredients to be baked under the cheese, then they subtly alter the flavor of the sauce
Avatar 3:46pm HyperDose:

I grew up eating what we called Sicilian slices. Then sometime in the early-mid 2010's everyone started calling them Grandma slices. Guessing because Italian Americans with ancestry from other regions of Italy also make square pies?

tim, the first year I lived in Ann Arbor, a friend came to visit over Tgiving. I didn't know much about the place yet. We needed to eat, and we saw people going to Cottage Inn, so we went in, took a table. Place was packed. We were greeted very nicely and told that we'd be taken care of soon. We sat there, confused and menuless and then realized that they were doing a Tgiving meal for the unhoused population of Ann Arbor -- and that we had managed to blend right in. We, er, scurried out. Ate at Raja Rani. I don't think I ever want back to Cottage Inn!

Avatar 🍝 Swag For Life Member 3:54pm YETI BOB:

So…in New York…circa 1960…if you went into a pizzeria, you asked either for "pizza" (the big round one), or "Sicilian" (the thick rectangular one).

Then…possibly in the 1970s…pizza-makers on Long Island, as the story goes, started getting nostalgic. They longed for that simple home pie that their mothers or grandmothers had made. By all accounts, they started making, for themselves, a rectangular pie…that was much thinner than the standard Noo Yawk Sicilian pie. The tomatoes on it were fresher, sometimes raw, and the cheese was lighter. Someone started calling this neo-pie "Grandma Pizza," after its origins in the Old Country--and it lay dormant among the pizza-making domestic cells of Long Island for a good ten years.

there's no stoop too low for superbowl marketing. Springsteen sold his publishing rights last year and i wonder if he'd have done that; and who "owns the rights" to Mr. Vega's music?

Bruce photo-ops into a few local places to regain his cred.

Gotta run. Thanks for a great show and interview, Olivia! Pats for Bruce and treats for Matt as long as they are good bois!

dday posted a great quote from Rundgren about Meat Loaf and Springsteen this morning:

"Everyone saw the same act that I saw, but then nobody saw it the same way I saw. In my mind this was the genius spoof of Bruce Springsteen that the world so desperately needed. The hyperbolic lyrics about motorcycles & switchblades, the simple triads of the music, the melodrama, the mysterious Svengali at the piano, all fronted not by a hunky denim clad stud but a 250-pound wild man whose head might explode any second. I was sold." Todd Rundgren from the book "The Individualist"

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Carmichael:

Sounds like Todd doesn't care for Bruce's presentation style. Which reminds me, there was some band on SNL a week or two back who outright stole every one of Springsteen's stage cliches. They were a clone of Bruce & band. I was astonished, I thought they would be served papers before they got off the stage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

So much admiration for Debbie & Clem Burke ...but Blondie the band somehow never landed too hard for me ...an era there were many other things seemed more on point...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm coelacanth∅:

Bruce's style was pretty comical, but so was 3/4 of performers at that time. same clichés, same basic image.
i don't like a lot of Springsteen's music -because of arrangement, not composition... but i think he's a stand-up guy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm olivia:

robin Thank you!

@coelacanth-I agree. I want to remix all of his songs without any keys lol

Bruce Springsteen is more similar to Meatloaf than a lot of people would like to admit. the thing is...they both RULE
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm coelacanth∅:

Ryan YES! ...and no sax.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Carmichael:

Nothing against Sprinsteen the guy, but the band performances are almost cartoonish. Do you really expect me to buy your blissing out, like the sax player is blowing the most fantastic solo in history? At least until tomorrow night?

Does any Fat White Family song sound like any other Fat White Family song? These guys are all over the place -- but I always like it! Hadn't heard them in a while.

Absolute smasherator of a show, Olivia! A great interview, great tunes, the total package. I guess there could have been more pizza, but even radio has its limitations. Many thanks!

Stay hungry, Pizza Pasta Pocket People!

Whoa, I thought we'd gone full Demis Roussos for a moment. Instead, it's a loverly, druggy cover of the Walker Brothers. Decent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I like the early Brooce with too many words that only FMUvians & the like ever play.
Yeah for having such a champion of Garage like LittleSteven in the band & such a celebrated hot band - a more direct kinda recording shouldn't have been so hard to arrive @. But the target was the Charts & the mainstream...

i do really like 2 of Springsteen's albums. nebraska and (to less of a degree) tom jode. anyone who's heard those 2 albums can figure why.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm dday:

@Handy..thanks for the repost. @Carmichael: It's an observation by Todd, not a criticism. He's merely saying the seriousness with which Bruce presents his material can be offset by the over the topness of Meatloaf's. I worked at Todd's #2 studio of choice in Woodstock for owner/Chief Engineer Chris Andersen. Todd was already gone to SF or Hawaii by the time I got there, but when pressed for info, Chris would open up on some topics. Not gossip, just facts from a guy who spent many years (11) as Todd's road sound guy & more in the studio as well. Chris was a great boss.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Meatloaf was like GaryBusey or something - something wound a little too tight in there & craycray. Head full of backwards political garbage. *Not* like Brooce that way. But that craycray was part of his full bore energy. He never phoned it in vocally. For all that - the only thing by him I care to hear is his RockyHorror tune. & people say one on one he was a nice guy.
