As for McKenna & the Stoned Ape thing - I'm with him as far as our ancestors in deeper PreHistory were out there in the forests & jungles where the plants & fungi were. & being high on them is perhaps in fact our Natural State after all. & even that this is profound for Society. As for Fungi being Aliens - this seems Metaphor ? The fact (?) that Fungi are genetically closer to us than to Plants is almost more than I can fathom - tho our co-evolution is apparent...

Halloween has several traditions in common with the early Celtic pagan/Gaelic festival Samhain.
...and the Great Pumpkin soundtrack wasn't released until 2018; it's sourced from the TV special (with sound effects), alas, not original masters. In case you are tempted by any of the pricey vinyl versions.

Autumn can provoke wanderlust though not so much this year. Flight/freeze? The seasons still change here it’s just subtle and confusing because fall is the planting season and more tourists come in the winter. I still walk the beach singing boys of summer. Aliens and mushrooms would be McKenna theory as far as I know. I am dressing today some kind of a black and white outfit with old Niki Barr band t shirts.

Built by Northrop Grumman, JPSS 2 will provide global weather observations for medium and long-term forecasts. The Atlas 5 will also launch the Low-Earth Orbit Flight Test of an Inflatable Decelerator, or LOFTID, re-entry aeroshell vehicle on a test flight. LOFTID is a joint project between NASA and ULA. The rocket will fly in the 401 vehicle configuration with a four-meter fairing, no solid rocket boosters, and a single-engine Centaur upper stage. Delayed from Sept. 30 due to anomaly during testing of the satellite’s Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite, or VIIRS, instrument.

The mission is expected to deploy two spacecraft payloads directly into geosynchronous orbit, one of which is the military’s TETRA 1 microsatellite. The Falcon Heavy’s two side boosters will land at Landing Zone 1 and 2 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, and the core stage will be expended. Delayed from late 2020, 2nd quarter of 2021, July 2021, and October 2021 by payload issues. Delayed from early 2022 and June 2022. Delayed from Oct. 28.

Rupert Holmes also was the writer of 'Timothy'? right?

Correct, Dano! Perhaps the only hit song about cannibalism.

This is fantastic! I haven't heard this since I was like 8 years old. Forgot all about it

And Wikipedia tells me it wasn't released until 1980. So I was lied to.

@thin slice - you were on the right track - pina colada by holmes was the final no. 1 of the 70s

That's what Rosco means? I thought it had to do with the stage lighting company.

Evan, I am still working diligently at naming that unnamed ska song you played. Should have an answer in a few years ...

unknown label, chresti. unknown everything ... Here's the link (it's at 1:33):www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46am
efd:

@chresti No label, it was on a mix tape someone had from the early ‘80s. I played it on my show twice, shared it with some serious music heads, sent it around on our internal WFMU email list… no one knows it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47am

And it’s not Shazam-able, nor do the lyrics return anything useful on internet searches.

@chresti it’s really more of a “ska” song, imho, not authentic. Very likely English.

Great show as ever, Joe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am
efd:

@chresti Could be! One of the challenges in identifying it is that there’s no discernible chorus or title. Sounds similar to Madness but I’m pretty sure it’s not them. My guess is it’s a non-LP B-side that was never released later on, hence the lack of Shazam-ability.
