I'm sorry this has been pointed out already. The beginning day and date of the Marathon listed on the home page doesn't match. It's listed as Saturday March 7 but March 7 is a Monday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm efd:

@tim, thanks, I'll give someone a stern talking to. For the record the marathon begins on Monday, after several years of starting on Saturday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm tim from washington:

@Handy - very cool! Let's get a Hand(y)s Across America Book exchange going. It'll save on postage. I'm eager to start the Tanya Taqag book. I'll be finished with a Delmore Schwartz collection in a day or two then on to Split Tooth.

@Tim from washington - no but PH was played non-stop on FM radio and their music was quite a topic of conversation amongst us.

  12:31pm Gerry from Miami:

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in all its "wisdom," never got around to inducting Procol Harum into its hallowed corridors. Shame on Jann Wenner and his cohorts for snubbing some of the best bands in the history of pop/rock music---- Procol Harum. Jethro Tull, Emerson. Lake and Palmer, King Crimson. There are others.....

This QOTSA album was just one of those that was played so much by mu co-workers at the record store I worked at when it came out that I haven't listened to it since and completely forgot Lanegan did vocals for that band until the constant reminders yesterday
Avatar 12:39pm Joe B:

Nocturne was one of the highlights at the last Lanegan concert I saw, 2019 at the Stone Pony
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm efd:

@bob_ham, no, I don't have as strong a connection to that band as these others
  12:42pm bob_ham:

Fair enough, my friend. Keep it going. The show has - per usual - been great so far.

Didn't know Lanegan personally but like the Sadies, seemingly everyone they met wanted to, and often did, collaborate with them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm tim from washington:

Astute observation, Joe.
  12:45pm Kat in Chicago:

Those two had magnificent voices and it made sense to play them adjoining. Nice suggestion @luka

Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Handy Haversack:

Lot of that the past few weeks. Or rather, enough to trigger a strong case of recency bias over here. There's one troll who keeps popping up with different names and angries up my blood more than I should let it. I try to go with nonattachment, but sometimes you just wanna tell someone to fuck off, you know?

Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:07pm ChukAmok:

I was thinking during Joe B.'s Good tribute show on Monday that to troll the FMU comments on a regular day is pretty pathetic, but to do so during a memorial/tribute is downright LOW.
Pay no mind to the disingenuous and attention hungry, and focus on the tunes, good times, and as is sadly often the case these days: the memories.
Avatar 1:09pm Joe B:

thanks Mike. yeah mensch is a good start when discussing Dallas!

@tim Haha, good point!
  1:10pm Cacophone Jeff:

The trolls are just plain WRONG! These tributes are for amazing musicians and artists that soldiered on despite their talent not making them disgustingly rich, which makes them all the greater! Just my POV, and almost everyone on this board understands that. Thank you for the tributes EFD!

@Handy - if you are ordering from those Screaming Trees selections in the SST store, I'd skip Anthology. It's a decent overview but nothing that is non-LP/EP

Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:19pm Handy Haversack:

Another endorsement for C Jeff's statement. Almost every tribute show or set, I see at least one commenter say that they regret not knowing the artist previously but are grateful to have found them even if only after their death. Often that person is me!

I am not nearly as deeply steeped in the musical mysteries as many among the FMU community and am deeply grateful for how much I learn here each and every day -- and not at all least from efd and Joe B.

I went for Even If and Buzz Factory, Joe -- had a feeling!

I learn something new with every FMU show I listen to, whether a tribute show or not! I'm sincerely grateful for that and give huge kudos to FMU DJs and all they've learned me!

Handy: Many things are good about this timeline, but when I realized yesterday that I am in a timeline where Smashing Pumpkins has 11 albums instead of just the first 3, that really burned my biscuit.

I'm at work, catching some of the tunes while on lunch... Gonna have to listen to the whole show in the future. I really hope we can go a few days or a week without losing any more musicians! Thank you efd, and the WFMU DJs as a whole for all your work, passion, and knowledge!

@Jeff - no tribute on Shakin' Street this Friday - everyone in the playlist is long dead!

Dig the whole Heroes of the Night compilation. Bought it solely on the basis of Sheila B playing "Another Bottle of Wine" a couple months ago.

I can't get a line on if The Cry is vintage or contemporary. It kicks ass either way.

My desktop keyboard is great for anything except typing quietly. It's a lot more fun than how my laptop keyboard has a few important keys no longer working because I don't feel like taking it apart see if the laptop keyboard has a bent cable/clip somewhere.

Ohm was a bona fide hit with the FMU DJs when this came out.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Figgsrock:

To add to the keyboard talk, the desktop I got about 9-10 months ago came with a new keyboard. It's been fine except for one little squeaking noise that happens and I cannot figure out what key (or combo of keys) that does it.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:48pm karlward:

Figgsrock: here's what you do: get a steel hammer, four pounds or more. Then one good solid whack on each key. Not too hard though, just hard enough to drive a nail with one blow. Might take about a half hour to do it right. I guarantee the squeak will be long, long gone, and you'll feel much better.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:50pm Figgsrock:

@Karlward: That is excellent advice. After I do that I'll make sure to recycle all the pieces!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm efd:

I got one of them mechanical keyboards for Christmas at home and I've been enjoying it quite a bit! Not good for silent typing , though.

@Joe B. I heard someone mention Shakin' Street yesterday, but couldn't really make it out. Are you doing a show centered around NOLA?
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Handy Haversack:

My keyboard is broken, too. Everything it outputs sounds like it comes from the addled brain of some sort of louche doofus! Where do I register my complaints?!
  1:57pm Listener Robert:

What you said a bit earlier has been on my mind for some time: For most of this century, seens WFMU DJs have been saluting people who recently died. It's our cohort. I don't remember it being like that on WFMU in the 20th Century.

I liked that Miss Georgia Peach. Blain Cartright from Nine Pound Hammer (and that crappy band named after a Ted Nugent stage rap) plays guitar on it.

Well, as one of those "wow, Jeannie C Riley vibes here" idiots who recognized the tune itself, thanks. I guess.

Yes, thank you. I am asking a lot of very easy to answer all by myself questions... Looking forward to the Carnival Time! program, Joe.

Avatar 2:20pm Cecile:

My husband might be right. I might need a hearing aid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm efd:

@Cecile I admit I wondered the same thing at first! I think they're saying "foreigners" with a, erm, foreign accent.
Avatar 2:21pm Cecile:

Ah, that could be. Whew. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Sometimes you just can't know. There's that "Janitor" song that Clay's been playing and I thought...."Are they saying 'Oh ma genitals'"? Turns out they were!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm tim from washington:

I think I may need hearing aids soon too. I got a feeling there's a few others in the WFMU orbit in the same boat. I wonder if we could buy in bulk as a group to get a cheaper rate?
Avatar 2:25pm Cecile:

Yeah, I have that problem with a lot of Kpop songs. I have to take a look at the English translation before I start giggling like a 9 year old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm WoodsOfNH (now Maine):

I'd prefer an ear horn.

Heya Cecile! If you're not already, listen to Mike Rogers' show on the Sheena stream. It's J-pop as opposed to K, but totally cool show. Live from Japan!

Avatar 2:53pm Cecile:

Well, Carm, I looked at Mike's playlist, and saw Boris. A good sign of quality. I guess OHD are pretty slick and popular (although SERIOUS songwriters) and Exile Tribe are J-idols so I didn't see them. But I'm really intrigued and will listen to his show.
