"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Anyone know if it’s been re-issued in a newer edition or CD format ? (I realize I can stream it via inter-web).

I think I have a particularly thick skull. I have really smashed my head multiple times, but only a few actual knockouts. I did once almost lose consciousness when walking in Atlanta at New York speed and I hit a tree branch that they'd allowed to grow at 5'11" because no one else had ever walked on the sidewalk. Went to my knees but stayed conscious. Same when I was pistol-whipped once by a mugger; I reeled but realized if I passed out my friend would be all alone, so I righted the ship.

It *is* freeform: if JA wants to to talk to Clay for three straight hours, that's how he wants it. His show, his freeform. We're along for the ride and lucky to be here, I figure, whatever JA wants to program for us, whether it's Time Trout or Clay. Fortunately for all, it's often both!

The only holidays that it's still OK to get excited about are Marathon, Hellraiser, and SWAGVENT. To quote myself:

"I think of it as the liturgical WFMU year. Marathon is Carnival and New Year. Hellraiser is the thinning of the veils, still holy but the antipodes, where the mortal energies of Marathon wear down and must be recharged through sacrifice and fear."

I was knocked out once. I was chaperoning a class of Italian students on summer school. We went on an evening excursion to the fairground and happened upon a group of very unhappy locals who were shouting xenophobic abuse at our students. I felt scared to stand up to them, but needed to get the kids out of the situation, so I did. The leader of the unhappy locals punched me in the face and knocked me out proper, breaking my zygomatic bone. I don't remember falling to the ground, but I do remember being an ugly mess for a good few weeks afterwards. Still don't quite have feeling in my upper right lip. In the early years, it frustrated me that I still had this leftover loss of feeling from the incident, that I wasn't allowed to forget it. Nowadays, though, I feel glad because they only hit me and none of the kids.

When I was a kid in little league(probably 10 years old or so), my dumb ass walked into the on deck circle while my teamate was taking practice swings.
