Did you play murk last time? Sent me on a quest for their stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Ike:

So as a fill-in for Irwin, are you contractually compelled to tell a droll story about how awful the U.S. Postal Service is, and how all of its employees are the worst, nastiest, most entitled people to have ever existed in the history of the universe?

shawn, ike, rabbit...hey! and yeah, cecile, i think so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Ike:

Too on-the-nose, Cecile? I'm trying to work on that.
Avatar 3:24pm Droll:

I assure you I do not force Irwin to tell any story... or do anything else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...does 'Grumblin' Fur' mean we're *still* Doin' the Dawg theme after Ken *&* Nazzario - ?!?...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm tim from champaign:

"Holland Tunnel Dive" cover?
  3:26pm Cecile:

I was just enjoying Jack's ... different vibe.

And, tim, right on. I saw them on that tour and they killed it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Jack Mello:

you got it, tim! good call, my man.
  3:27pm Cecile:

Well, thanks for turning me on to Murk, then, Jack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Ike:

Droll, ha ha, if it had been a Droll story instead of a droll story, it would have been capitalized. But you know that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm tim from champaign:

I've never heard of Daniele Baldelli & Marco Dionigi. I really dug it. Thanks for heppin' me to something new, Jack.

@cecile, what year was the tour you saw?
Avatar 3:34pm Droll:

I guess you're right, I don't have anti-USPS stories and everyone knows Irwin isn't even the boss of Irwin anyhow. I'm generally confused -- we used to have a Jack Mello on KEXP (maybe even KCMU?) here in Seattle, sounds just like this guy. I confuse easily.
  3:35pm Cecile:

GoF after songs of the free came out.

I love this cheeseball jam...

daniele baldelli is the king of italo disco!

Brad! Scones in da houze!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm steve:

Jack - props for playing the music i usually listen to when im not listening to FMU!!

tim - Baldelli put out an AMAZING 70s-80s synth/disco comp i think called "Cosmic"... definitely worth checking out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Jack Mello:

thanks, steve! appreciate it.
  3:41pm Andy Sloan:

Hey Jack, thanks for the airplay, sounds great. I'm a big Songs of the Free fan too.

  4:13pm BDR:

Best Joe Frank episode ever!
  4:13pm Dave:

Death is a process with you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Jack Mello:

ha! sorry 'bout that, BDR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...since it's the 'Jimi' spelling - I'll review the new PBS American Masters on Hendrix as worth watching & fun for enthusiasts, but not very deep for a two hour documentary (nothing on, say, Hendrix's relation to Jazz). The Lou Reed one that naturally has been shown lately was a little better this way, I think. ...I appreciate it, because getting these people exposed in mainstream media has been difficult because they've always represented drugs & degradation & the rejection of their values generally to those people - despite their obvious (to us) Artistic importance...
  4:15pm david from ks:

Time to Rise,,, World Famous DJ Jack Mello!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- love Joe Frank - he's definitive - but they're all old shows anyway!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm Jack Mello:

david, welcome! rise and shine, baby.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- a Fela Kuti doc. would be something; I'm not sure he had any bones left the authorities hadn't broken @ least once (for example)...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Mike East:

a Jimi Hendrix musical can't be too far off in the future.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...well - this new doc. interviewed a lot of people who really knew Hendrix & created a good portrait of him that way - no misinformed idiocy; Sadly, given the history of such things - this alone is a strong positive...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- reportedly Andre 3000 will star in a bio film. This is even scarier - but it all depends! Seems the family ~ rights holders have not wanted to sign over rights to his music or songs to any project - & maybe they've been wise!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm steve:

relevant (nerds only) - www.constructingtheuniverse.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...thing about iconic RockStars - they're such multi-faceted - & charismatic, by definition - figures already - so getting some schlump to write & another to portray...Todd Haynes did well to have six people play Dylan impressionistically !...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm tim from champaign:

I'd like to watch those American Experiences. The Jonestown American Experience is probably one of my favorite docs. Jimi was the first musician I flipped my lid over as a young teenager, Lou/Velvets probably #2. I wonder why I like noisy guitars so much?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- interesting Steve !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...so yeah - I prefer a good documentary (& those hard enuff to find) - or just go all impressionistic (like Todd Haynes does). It's the drammas make the bucks though.

Lana del Rey. reminds me of old school junglist schiidt! Dig!

ha! all it takes is to sing "gangsta"

wow, i knew that voice sounded familiar (LDR) but I'm more used to hearing her on 92.3 NOW - which Amy and I call the Ke$ha station because chance are ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm tim from champaign:

That trill in the LDR mix is a downy woodpecker call.

Avatar 4:48pm northguineahills:

Apparently, I like generic club music, who knew?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm tim from champaign:

I think DJ Trouble said something to the effect that she picks up bird call records for cheap because no one samples them. The jig's up now.
  4:51pm Tom:

hey, so do most of y'all work at the post office?
