You see a blanket on the ground. It's your favorite color, smooth and soft. You can sit on it, or lie on it. It's a flying blanket, and you are the pilot. You are in control. You can fly anywhere you wish, just by thinking about it. You are the pilot.

Listener comments!

  Mon. 5/2/11 9:20pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings Dan B.
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:24pm depressed Persian cab driver:

C'mon.. this was an anthem of sorts when I stupidly joined the Peace Corps under Regan. Why damage it this way?
Shout was good, in that we felt no need to run outside and shoot guns in the air as women trilled...
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:25pm anne:

TFF was my favorite band in middle school
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:28pm I-Ball:

This is awesome!!
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:28pm Dan B:

I heart TFF. I remember what a revelation this song was the first time I heard it -- then I was talking with the guy who hosts Dave Emory before me and he was born 2 years after the date on which WFMU rc'd its copy of the record. Ha!
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:28pm Parq:

Well, sorry to you genexers who are having TFF mutilated, but for me, hearing Agnew *exactly how he actually sounded* was much more horrifying,
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:28pm Marmalade Kitty:

I prefer the damaged version :)
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:29pm Dan B:

@Parq, yeah, that was sorta the point with Agnew.
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:29pm Richard from Venezuela:

A classic converted in some kind of cumbia at the end. Nice cumbia shout.
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:31pm Richard from Venezuela:

Noise cumbia or cumbia noise.
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:34pm m sputnik:

this music makes me want to take an epic nap on the edge of the world.
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:37pm depressed Persian cab driver:

Then lets all go damage something, Kitty. Lets invade a few countries and blow up and execute at random! Can you do that trilling thing we need to hear at beheadings?
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:42pm Marmalade Kitty:

Don't let the bastards grind you down, Mr. Persian cabby!!
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:46pm anne:

they came from bath, england
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:47pm Marmalade Kitty:

Change was my fav!
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:48pm Parq:

@Dan, 9:29 - the thing is, for you that's history, for me it's memory.
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:50pm Marmalade Kitty:

do wfmu sell crank cars for scrap or do they do a wfmu makeover?? ..like mtv makeover?
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:52pm wiki:

Nolle Prosequi.
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:56pm Rutger de Ruyter:

You know, WFMU being what it is, if they/we were to do a version of OC Choppers or Pimp My Ride, it would just be called Fast 'N' Bulbous.
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:57pm Dan B:

@Sputnik, that Gurdjieff music is so deep, right? @MK, we are planning to reach the moon by 2020 by climbing a stack of all the donated cars, and then we will host a live concert up there. Then we'll climb down and pimp those rides and cover the entire earth with WFMU roadsters blaring Merzbow and/or Jacques Brel over the speakers. Actually, some charity picks them up and we just get a cut of the scrap metal value. @wiki, thanks.
  Mon. 5/2/11 9:59pm anne:

that was awesome
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:03pm Marmalade Kitty:

That was it! Pimp my ride!! ..scrap motors generally go for $65-$85. You can fetch more on e-bay, apparently O.o..
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:03pm depressed Persian cab driver:

Good show, Dan. As you say, nothing is sacred here. I appreciate the damaged TFF somewhat after hearing the explanation... thanks!
Memory of the fun I was having back then, as a much younger guy, with the electrifying music, now gone.
I will be depressed further!
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:06pm Rick:

This Satiepiece has bridged so many boundarys in its years
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:07pm Marmalade Kitty:

Cheer up everyone!!! Think positive!! be happy :)
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:08pm Dan B:

@DPCD, I am not trying to increase your depression, but I also look back with yearning on those halcyon days of...Reagan and Thatcher. Maybe not so much really. Oh god, and I was so depressed back then. But it's true that Shout really meant something to a lot of people. Anyway, I suspect I know you DPCD, and I wish you only the best.
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:09pm Dan B:

@Rick, yes, it's such a quietly powerful piece and retains its integrity somehow despite its use in TV insurance commercials.
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:11pm jeff-m:

fuck yeah
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:11pm Marmalade Kitty:

"those halcyon days of...Reagan and Thatcher."?? ?
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:12pm wiki wikardo:

Ah, the Good Old Songs. Does The Mighty Wurlitzer remember "Shout?"
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:13pm Marmalade Kitty:

  Mon. 5/2/11 10:14pm anne:

and the PMRC
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:22pm Ike:

For the last few songs before this, I was like, WTF, did a little old lady hijack the station from Dan?
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:22pm depressed Persian cab driver:

Not you, really Dan. The title of your show is right on, and if I could only go braying at ground zero with the rest I'd surely feel better.
@Kitty- I hated Regan and Thatcher, but he for some reason funded Peace Corps like mad and we got to serve our country outside the military, in a good way, so I felt like a counter weight to the Faulkland Island debacle...sorry to be such a bore!
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:22pm WakaWin:

what was the song that was played right before GI Gurdjieff? not shout....
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:25pm Dan B:

@WakaWin, it was just more mutations of Shout, sorry to day
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:33pm Marmalade Kitty:

I was just thinking, about the John Lennon and Yoko Ono peace campaign 1969.. what if David and Victoria beckham were to smoke a few joints get into a bag for a week and become obsessed with promoting peace? If
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:33pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Tonight's show is quite inspired, Dan. I'm really enjoying it. And now you're playing "American Woman." I don't need your war machine!
Good stuff, Dan!
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:34pm damien:

Presidents, priests and old ladies too...
They'll swear on the Bible what's best for you.
Atom bomb, Vietnam, missiles on the moon...
And they wonder why the kids are shootin' dope so soon
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:37pm Ike:

Woah did I accidentally switch to Q104 somehow? :) "Am. Woman" would be way better backwards.
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:37pm Parq:

"American Woman" -- another thing on this show I'm old enough to remember in real time.
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:37pm Historical Memory:

Didn't the Guess Who have to omit this song from their setlist or something, when they performed at the Nixon-era White House?
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:39pm Rick:

Tonight's show has put me in the mind of John Cage's lovely flexible paperback: "Empty Words".
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:41pm Dan B:

@Ike, don't let me stop you from switching...but I think you'll be disappointed, I hear Q104 just changed formats. @Everyone else, wonderful thoughts floating around here. The Beckhams in a sleeping bag! Old ladies reading John Cage! Wombat cocoons zinging out frisbee teeth!
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:43pm depressed Persian cab driver:

Exactly like my old vinyl of this Guess Who- great sound! Randy Bachman is still a force in Canada. Saw him with former BTO in Charlottetown last year. There is a man who never drank or took drugs and just loved the music and still does, an encyclopedia of guitar work in human form!
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:47pm Marmalade Kitty:

Great drum rolllllll...!!!!!!!!
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:48pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Holyoke! Did ya also go to the mall, Dan? Hee hee. I miss Western Mass.; sigh...
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:48pm Rick:

My colon cancer surviving old Mama loves John Cage, but rarely troubles with his literary output. I however (and I'm NOT an old woman) find it awesome!
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:49pm Q104 last five songs played:

Did any of us need to hear these tunes for the thousandth time?

1. Heart - Crazy On You
2. Aerosmith - Love In An Elevator
3. Genesis - Behind The Lines
4. Meat Loaf - Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad
5. Bob Dylan - Knockin' On Heaven's Door

  Mon. 5/2/11 10:51pm Marmalade Kitty:

6.The Guess Who American Woman
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:52pm pommophagous porcupine:

Nice record digging! (Especially dug the Oxygene -- took me right back -- and enjoyed the Viking mashup.)
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:54pm Wendy del Formaggio:

It gets so tiresome when people give the DJ a hard time about his/her choices. The DJ is not your service provider. You are not a customer. There is more than one radio station in the world.
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:56pm pommophagous porcupine:

But there is only one WFMU!
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:56pm Give the Guy Some Room:

The last time Amer. Woman was played on this station was last year. The last time it was played on Q104 was probably last weekend.
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:58pm Marmalade Kitty:

I thought it was a Lenny Kravitz song..?!
  Mon. 5/2/11 10:58pm Give the Guy Some Room:

It was, if you missed 1970.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:01pm Tom Miller:

Hi Dan, I listened to the Glen Jones marathon and remember how gone he sounded at the end. One of the great radio moments.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:04pm Tom Miller:

American Woman was the theme song three years ago of the pro-Serbia factions who resisted Kosovo independence and saw it as a U.S. plot.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:05pm Wendy del Formaggio:

MKitty, it was also covered by the Butthole Surfers, in quite an inspired manner, I must say.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:06pm Marmalade Kitty:

When I heard the Osama Bin Laden "Breaking News", I was unable to feel anything either way.. I searched for a -Yay hooray! but could not find it.. more lies more conspiracy, evil etc.. I am probably more paranoid for watching the "News"
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:09pm Marmalade Kitty:

I'm not buying the "News".. News News Fuck off News!!!!!
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:11pm Sean:

The News freaks me out me, but the Olds freaks me out even more.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:12pm News Anchor:

Meanwhile, in other bullshit...
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:12pm depressed Persian cab driver:

In Sh'Allah! (meaning "Whatever" in Arabic.) Is important if you think shooting Bin Laden really means a lot to our enemies. It makes drunks at the Phillies game go nuts, but then they can't remember where they parked their car and they can't afford the gas to drive home!
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:13pm Rick:

Kitty, I know what you mean. There's too much money, power and influence for the bastards to care about telling the truth.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:13pm Parq:

Okay, Agnew and now guitar mass -- Dan, is there anything else from my childhood you'll be needing tonight?
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:14pm The Flying Nun:

@Parq: Yes, I gave Osama last rites, just to be on the safe side.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:14pm Dan B:

@Tom, interesting history to that song. @MK, naw, they killed him. @Wendy, just the Flea Market -- I guess it's 7-4 every Sunday at a dead mall on the south edge of the city across from a Stop & Shop. Ah, W Mass nostalgia is hitting hard. (Houses are going for $40K up there! Ack!) @Parq, what would you suggest? I can do your whole childhood up if you tell.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:15pm Tom Miller:

How about "Up With People"? That was one of Agnew's favorites.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:16pm Rick:

Hallock Hill is always quietly captivating
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:16pm damien:

My imitation of a Deadhead discussing this set:

"Dude! DB did a Silverwater -->Fracture V --> F,IPMLIYH --> Space --> Jam --> IBTLMWAW"

Other Deadhead: DUDE!
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:18pm Dan B:

@damien -- LOL
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:19pm damien:

hardy har har! All in good jest, Mr. DJ!
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:22pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Dan, next time I'm up there I'll try to finagle a friend to take me to that flea market. If the record guy is there, maybe Charlie will take me! And $40K for a house? Is it in the sticks, like Leverett or something? Either way, MAN, I can almost sorta vaguely afford that, haha.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:26pm Marmalade Kitty:

  Mon. 5/2/11 11:31pm Rick:

upstate lonely amtrak station with an american legion post next to the shitty un-ploughed parking lot. Abondoned.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:31pm Dan B:

There are 4 houses for sale on my brother's street in Holyoke in a decent residential neighborhood on the north side within walking distance of the grocery and liquor store, some cafes, etc. One of them is $39K and he told me it had been on the market for months without selling. I guess no one up there can get a loan. There are others going for between $40K and $60K. I'm broke, but that's tempting! Damn, I pay 1/3 that in rent every year anyway now!!
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:32pm Jacques Brel:

I am alive and well and living in Paris. Not so, you-know-who.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:32pm Dan B:

@Rick, exactly!
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:33pm Dan B:

@JB, kudos to you. Fuck this Lama guy, eh?
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:34pm Taylor:

I'd be genuinely impressed if the WFMU library had a copy of "Prisencolinensinainciusol" on vinyl.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:35pm Jacques Brel:

He has his nice points. I am magnanimous and openminded.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:36pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Dan, I'm broke, too, but also tempted. I don't want to calculate how much I pay in rent every year. I'll start crying! Waah, I miss New England.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:36pm 78s:

We smash much nicer.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:39pm Rick:

Hermitage is the best word EVER. chuang tzu, pants down, shaking his rump, notwithstanding!
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:42pm Wikipedia:

Here's your house price explanation:

"About 22.6% of families and 26.4% of the population were below the poverty line, including 41.7% of those under age 18 and 13.2% of those age 65 or over. Holyoke is noted as one of the poorest cities in Massachusetts, with about 50% of school children living below the poverty line."
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:45pm PGB:

I liked the palette cleanser, but I was groovin' to the Quicksilver. It sounded like something I'd be hearing from the dorm room next to me in 1970, if I'd been in college then. It brought back memories I don't really have.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:46pm Wendy del Formaggio:

PGB: I love your final sentence the best. Can I use that?
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:47pm PGB:

You bet, Wendy. Deploy it for maximum effect!
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:54pm Dan B:

@Taylor, sorry to disappoint.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:54pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Thank you, PGB! :-)
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:54pm PGB:

I'd never play the Quicksilver on my stereo, though, it was always from that guy in the next room over. In 1970, I was the dude playing the odd mix of Creedence and Walter Carlos.
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:57pm damien:

exponential LOLs!
(The Heads call him "Jer Bear")
Btw, Stanley Owsley recently died...that's a whole radio show right there!
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:57pm Ike:

  Mon. 5/2/11 11:58pm Ben & Jerry:

Would you accept a pint of cherry garcia?
  Mon. 5/2/11 11:59pm damien:

Uh...Owsley Stanley
  Sun. 5/8/11 3:57pm Looms:

Delightful show, and nice smash!
