Listener comments!

  Wed. 10/1/08 3:11pm Sean Daily:

First comment! Woo hoo!
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:15pm Graeme:

I like this Scala and Kolacny Brothers CD but I was disappointed that they didnt do Status Quo's ' Paper Plane',
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:18pm Sean Daily:

How is the two different, Graeme?
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:18pm Sean Daily:

Or "are", ee-vun...
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:19pm stingy d:

kites are fuuunnnnnn
butterflies are frreeeee
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:22pm AnAnonymousParty:

Suddenly I feel like running through sunlit fields, wind breezing past me when a butterfly flies into my mouth and gets stuck in my throat and then I choke to death, all alone
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:23pm Graeme:

Hi Sean...well one ' stands for the light, pure and diaphanous angel voices soaring above Scala’s audience like a paper plane. The lead track itself expresses unconditional faith in life and love' and the other is a cock -rocking rifferama from denim clad Brit beat combo Status Quo.
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:24pm oatman:

one of my favorite free design songs. right up there with 'an elegy' - 'kites are fun' - 'bubbles' and 'i found love'
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:26pm Sean Daily:

So, Graeme, in other words, not much difference.
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:27pm Sean Daily:

Kenny G... gotta love him or gotta stuff him into the incinerator in little chopped-up pieces. Not much grey area there...
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:28pm Parq:

Speaking of Vice Presidents, Dan Quayle was a professed Free Design fan. He would heatedly point this out while decrying the strident, noisy hard rock that all the liberals preferred.
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:28pm Bad Ronald:

Yeah kinda like speedos
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:34pm stingy d:

irwin you got anythin by the cherry sisters?
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:38pm plinky:

hey dudes.
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:42pm Parq:

Man, that Coltrane was nice.
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:50pm Plinky:

Bad ronald good tv movie!
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:52pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Don't do this, Irwin.
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:52pm Hank:

Tony Sheridan was in Loafstäler with Billy Preston.
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:52pm north guinea hills:

wow, i've never heard this pat boone album. 'bout time!
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:54pm Parq:

{stunned silence}
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:55pm ?:

pretty funny that those pompous, self-important metallica dudes are getting shown up so handily by . . . PAT BOONE!
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:55pm Plinky:

  Wed. 10/1/08 3:56pm Sean Daily:

Yeah, kinda appropriate that Pat Boone's covering "Enter Sandman". I think Metallica earned that one.
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:56pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

phew...that's better.
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:57pm Harvey:

This bassline is very similar to "Then He Kissed Me" by The Crystals
  Wed. 10/1/08 3:59pm oatman:

on the first second or two when the song started i thought it was the crystals.
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:00pm mummybreath:

Stephen Merritt uses that bassline a lot on his earlier stuff. It reminds me of a song off of 'Charm of the Highway Strip'
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:02pm another old man:

or every tv theme by Vic Mizzy
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:08pm Sean Daily:

Gee, Irwin, you make that beer sound SO tasty...
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:12pm stingy d:

HARVEY SID FISHER!!! aw man this one of my favorties!
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:18pm Sean Daily:


I'm waiting for you to tell me what tenterhooks are!
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:26pm C:

I just came across an incedible flautist from the 1980's named Sarah Heath. Anyone heard of her?
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:28pm St. Even Denver:

Thanks for the Prine!!!
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:31pm Graeme:

that reminds me .. must get some Maxell blank cassettes tomorrow.
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:36pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

someone else out there uses cassettes too? I feel community! and Broadcast rules.
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:37pm stingy d:

i use cassettes! can only find them in grocery stores nowadays though.
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:39pm Graeme:

I'm still clinging on ...and Peter Murphy used to advertise Maxell here in the UK. Best ever Police song this...
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:41pm g:

a couple of years ago I used to go to the wholesalers in the mid-twenties from Broadway over to 7th ave in NYC to get cassettes cheaply in bulk (don't know if they still sell 'em)
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:42pm north guinea hills:

when i first started to date my gf, i made a mixtape and wrapped it in a walkman so she could listen to it.....
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:46pm g:

hey, when does cassette nostalgia hipsterism start?
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:50pm Graeme:

It started with that Pete Murphy track - official.
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:53pm BZ:

It's the Roses
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:54pm bzul:

Lingering devotion or cool renewed inclination toward cassette recordings might be hisssssterism, no?
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

some of the experimental bands in my hometown are doing cassette-only very limited editions these days. too hipsterish for me.
  Wed. 10/1/08 4:59pm Toledo Tom:

Cassette nostalgia started with the first release of TG's 24 hours live.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:01pm jan:

Irwin: Gute Yontif! enjoying your show.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:02pm north guinea hills:

well, considering i've been making mixtapes since the the early 90's and i still buy cassettes at truck stops and shows and the hundreds i have in my cassette cabinet, i would say it never went away.....
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:03pm Lizardner Dave:

I never liked pre-recorded cassettes. Didn't understand paying extra for 'em when you could just buy the vinyl and tape a copy for the car or walkman or whatever.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:05pm C:

I've already rewound the stream to hear "Mama Get the Hammer". What a song!
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:07pm stingy d:

what splaying beihind you, i like that!
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:08pm Parq:

FMU has blogged cassette nostsalgia at least once, probably more than once. If I can find anything by searching the blog, I'll let yis know.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:09pm Harvey:

I've spent years trying to play like Bix. A legend.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:10pm Harvey:

PS I thought is was "birdman"?
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:11pm north guinea hills:

master recorded cassettes sound better then home recorded cassettes from a cd or record (but not better then the the cd or vinyl themselves). on the other hand, i never understood why cassettes were still $10 (or more, [not blanks]) until about 2000. i used to buy cassettes b/c i didn't care about sound quality in high school w/ my shitty stereo, later, i would usually only buy cassettes if i couldn't find said album anywhere else, if it was cassette only, or if it was damn cheap.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:11pm Parq:

Ah yes, here we are.

  Wed. 10/1/08 5:16pm St.Even Denver:

Ah.coldplay. now i have a soundtrack to buy allergy medicine and other products to...
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:17pm gumby:

nice tunies as always Irwin. I don't get to hear Bix & The Hold Steady in the same vicinity often enough.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:17pm plinky:

  Wed. 10/1/08 5:21pm jan:

I was making mix cassette tapes for years, and only stopped about two years after getting an Ipod in 2004. The Ipod just broke, and I have been listening to the old cassette mixes. recording analog allows
the mixer to think about what to play next while the current cut finishes recording. I find it hard to make iPod play lists. Just haven't done it. Burning CDs are also difficult. Making tape mixes is organic .
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:24pm St.Even:

Check out Cassette Mythos, a compelling compendium by Robin James.Seriously changed my life.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:26pm Sean Daily:

Cas-settes? What are these... "cassettes" you speak of, stranger? ;)
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:29pm Sara:

And lest we forget: the most fine cassettefrommyex.com
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:31pm Ike:

Cassettes always sounded better than vinyl on an affordable turntable. A good turntable costs too much. With cassettes and CDs and MP3s, you don't have to constantly brush the damn things or fix the freakin' needle, or spend tons of money on the player.

My car still has a cassette player, so I still use my old cassettes in it, but I don't make new ones. Kinda miss it.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:32pm Bad Ronald:

I only do 8 Tracks.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:34pm Ike:

I love Siouxsie & the Banshees. They (with Stump) flung me out of bland top-40 land and into the universe of the odd.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:36pm Mike B.:

Cassettes indeed. Hiss is bliss!
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:36pm St.Even:

  Wed. 10/1/08 5:41pm north guinea hills:

although, b/c FSA always would put "cd's detroy music" on all of their records & cd's i would purposely buy their cd's.....
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:43pm jan:

My understanding is that the prerecorded tape industry would use high speed duplication for production of the cassettes and that would have inferior sound to tapes made at real time speed from vinyl. Also the tape
used by for prerecorded was inferior as are the cassette cases.I never bought prerecorded cassettes.
Don't get all fetishistic about high end turntables. You can get a vintage AR XA on ebay. the high end turntables are far better equipment
than that which produced records to begin with.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:51pm Parq:

I bought major-label cassettes for a while coz I couldn't forgive CDs for killing LPs. Finally caved in the late 90s. Agree about cste. mixes being "organic", plus when you do a CD mix or an ITunes playlist, it's impossible to keep the volume levels uniform or get well-timed, gapless segues. But I'm too lazy to make cassette mixes now.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:52pm Parq:

Irwin, more country would be just fine with me.
  Wed. 10/1/08 5:58pm Sean Daily:

I, for one, could do with some Johnny Cash or Woody Guthrie right about now... Or here's one you might like, Irwin: Chris Cagle's "Cos the Chicks Dig It".
