Hi Irene,
Lovely to have you back, hope you had a nice break. Hello to one and all
  12:02pm van:

Gorgeous pic!
Avatar 12:07pm KP:

Good afternoon, Irene. Super selection from Velvet Underground.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm mariano:

Hi Irene and everyone! Love this Kurt Vile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Everybody! Glad to be here with you all today after a week off.
  12:13pm don:

beautiful photo, makes me think of Tom Verlaine's 'Red Leaves'...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks for the complements on the pic! I snapped that a few years ago at the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival in The Catskills. Didn't get to do much leaf peepin' this year, so this'll have to do.
Avatar 12:16pm fred von helsing:

saw Emiliana at Airwaves. Very nice! Her new album has changed direction from ballads to some more danceable stuff.
Avatar 12:18pm MenfussMike:

my favorite TYA song. such a beautiful tune.
Avatar 12:18pm MenfussMike:

quite possibly the ultimate love song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm DCE:

been a long time since I've heard this one!
Avatar 12:20pm KP:

These later 10 years after songs are so epic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Fuzzy:

"Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name..."
  12:20pm van:

Never heard but really like
Avatar 12:22pm MenfussMike:

That whole Cricklewood Green album was top notch. RIP Alvin
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm DCE:

I'll have to revisit that album; I remember thinking it wasn't so great when I got it back in the early 90s. Haven't heard it since!
Avatar 12:23pm KP:

Drove a tank, held a general's rank.
Avatar 12:24pm MenfussMike:

ahhh, ya cut the fade back in
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Irene Trudel:

Yeah, I was talking with DJ Stan about Ten Years After and remembering a time really liked them. Criklewood Green was definitely a decent album worth revisiting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm Irene Trudel:

Sorry @MenfussMike! I forgot all about it.
Avatar 12:27pm KP:

Anyone hear the post-Alvin Lee Ten Years After. They sounded amazingly like records, you realize it really was a band thing.
Avatar 12:28pm MenfussMike:

you can always replay it ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm mariano:

Heart Full of Leaves is gorgeous... sadly, I'm not as familiar with RH as I should be, he's from my day and all.
  12:31pm don:

Have seen the current TYA; Gooch is a great guitar player, maybe a little more flash and slick than Alvin, but they did a great job; for me, Leo has always been the glue..
Avatar 12:33pm MenfussMike:

TYA double cd live at filmore is insane.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm Ike:

Cool that you mentioned Fringe, I especially liked seasons 2 & 3 of that show. Another sci-fi show that did the alternating cast concept in its 3rd season was Farscape. A few parallels.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Irene Trudel:

Guess I didn't realize TYA reformed. Never say never, I guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm Mike East:

we rented some props to Fringe. I've never seen it myself, but I believe its been recommended to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Irene Trudel:

@Ike, I'm a big fan of both, but missed Fringe the first time around, having only seen it sporadically over the initial run. Haven't caught up to more than the first season, but it's nice that all the episodes are on Netflix for me to watch as I please.
  12:39pm don:

TYA still performs, mostly in Europe, w/ 3 originals-Ric, Chick and Leo- plus Joe Gooch on gtr/vocs.
Avatar 12:40pm MenfussMike:

yea, shame they could not put aside their differences. TYA was one band I was too young to catch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm Irene Trudel:

@Mike East, Fringe is very addictive, especially if you like convoluted plotlines and story threads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm Ike:

Fringe starts slow, to me it seemed like a bad X-Files knock-off at first (I'm an avowed hater of XF's bogus, dopey mythology). Fortunately Fringe found a much more interesting tack at the end of season 1.

Also, Fringe showrunner is behind new show "Almost Human."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Mike East:

I'll check it out on the netflix!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Mike East:

I heard JJ Abrams on npr talking about that show last night
  12:44pm bill domanico:

Hey Irene ! Still home recovering from hip surgery so I get to enjoy your show live! Nothing like pre Columbia records Ten Years After
Avatar 12:45pm northguineahills:

Time for lunch. Seesyas. Awesome sounds, Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Irene Trudel:

Hey@Bill! Sending healing vibes your way! Maggie has been posting a few updates on her FB page. Hope you're both doing well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm mariano:

@Ike: good to know about Fringe, I gave up on it a couple of episodes into season 1, thinking, like you said, that it was a pale imitation of X-Files. I'll have to give it another shot now, thanks!
Avatar 12:52pm Cecile:

I've been thinking about getting into that, but made the mistake of watching a few Arrow episodes this weekend. Now I'm hooked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Ike:

Oh yeah Cecile, Arrow is another one that gets a LOT better as it goes along. Many like the early episodes but I thought they suuuuuuuuuucked. The lead guy's acting skills improve a lot. He's just a walking talking block of wood in the pilot.
Avatar 12:55pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Ike, Fringe is available on Netflix over here, I need something to fill the huge void when Breaking Bad finished. Is this a series where patience is a plus which I can do. I find some series really gets going once a you have got a few episodes under the belt
Avatar 12:56pm Chris from DC:

Ooh, just in time for Hawkwind.
Avatar 12:57pm Cecile:

I have liked it from minute one. And I"m up to episode 5 or 6 and it's really starting to get rolling.

I just thought he was kind of dazed. I would be too, if I had just gotten off this crazy island after 5 years...
Avatar 12:57pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Hawkwind, nice, my friend tried to talk me into seeing them in Bristol last week but alas I did not go
Avatar 12:58pm Chris from DC:

Postponed until March here, but looking forward to seeing them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Ike:

Cecile, it gets even better. Congrats on getting into a non-procedural TV show, ha ha.
Avatar 1:01pm Cecile:

I'm also into the trainwreck that is Sleepy Hollow and Agents of Shield.

Althought I keep hoping for a crossover that will never happen: "Agents of the Shield"

"Vic, you and half of the Defenders robbed the Scrull's money train and are blackmailing Nick Fury with high school yearbook pictures?"
Avatar 1:07pm Cecile:

OK, those the overlap on those two shows must be...me. :D
  1:08pm KP:

Cecile, don't tell me I'm taping it!
Avatar 1:08pm MenfussMike:

Saw Nik Turner's Hawkwind about a week ago in Memphis. Great show!!! Glad I went
Avatar 1:09pm Cecile:

hahahaha no, KP.
  1:10pm KP:

Mike, they canceled out of NYC.
Avatar 1:12pm MenfussMike:

Go see em if you get a chance....preferably on drugs.
Avatar 1:15pm Cecile:

Neel Funn, as they say down in NZ.
Avatar 1:18pm Chris from DC:

Did the Philly show happen Mike? Closest they got to DC unfortunately.
  1:19pm Banjo Lisa:

Hi Irene!!! Thanks for playing Black Angel's Death Song earlier! Are you coming to Satellite Of Love-A tribute to Lou Reed this wed 11/20 9pm Rodeo Bar? I am doing a song on my own!! Yikes!!! Any chance you could announce the gig? It's gonna be good! Best to you!!
Avatar 1:24pm Cecile:

this isn't that other Lake band from the late 70s?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Irene Trudel:

Hey Banjo Lisa! Nice to hear from you. Didn't know about the gig but I'm happy to mention it. I probably won't be able to make it but it sounds like fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm Irwin:

Irene, I understand your husband does not like this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Irene Trudel:

Not true Irwin! At least that's not what he tells me. This BS&T album is something we found we both loved early on in our relationship.
  1:35pm Mike Fun:

This song sounds like it should be a Nick Drake/Scott Walker collaboration.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Irwin:

Ask him. I know he loves the album, but he recently made a very disparaging comment about that particular song. Of course, that song/arrangement is not typical of CIFTTM.
Avatar 1:47pm Cecile:

song related = sucky

At least for that kind of band.
Avatar 1:50pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Olivia Chaney, sweet
  1:52pm don:

Olivia Chaney-what a glorious voice and she sounds just as good live...
Avatar 1:53pm Droll:

Cecile, I think it's great when a band experiments, even when that means experimental bands start trying out "pop" music. I liked that stretch by BS&T, too.
  1:53pm Peter K.:

It's true -- I love that BS&T album, but "The Modern Adventures..." is my least favorite track. Although I will admit that I liked it the first 200 or so times I heard it.
  1:56pm van:

Wow, for a minute there I thought I was hearing Sharon Van Etten
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm Irene Trudel:

Oh well Peter, I stand corrected. It's still a favorite of mine. We can agree to disagree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Irwin:

Hope I didn't instigate any domestic disunity.
Avatar 2:02pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Great set, Irene.
  2:06pm Listening Out There:

The Drones are Upon Us!
Avatar 2:08pm Snortley:

OMG! My ex is in this group!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Irene Trudel:

Nah, not a chance.
Avatar 2:09pm Chris from DC:

Kind of reminds me of Kendra Smith.
Avatar 2:14pm MenfussMike:

kinda reminds me of mercury rev
Avatar 2:23pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Thanks for the heads up, Irene, about the Radio 2 show. Thanks to you I have become a fan of Olivia's music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm Mike East:

I stayed awake for about 45 seconds of Joe Frank last night.
  2:28pm don:

My favorite band...ever. Martin and the Chills...come on Martin we need new songs, like the very promising 'Molten Gold".
  2:32pm Banjo Lisa:

Thanks Irene!!!! Hope to see you one of these days soon! Great show as always! xo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Mike East:

ethereal...I think that's the word, right?
Avatar 2:38pm Sean in Bristol UK:

What a beautiful track, great to hear this again
Avatar 2:54pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

HEY NOW... Just got here & in time to catch Tom Rapp... nice.
Avatar 2:54pm Chris from DC:

Yeah, sublime this stuff is.
Avatar 2:56pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Now with the season-change, feels about right to dig out the old Pearls Before Swine rekkids.
  Swag For Life Member 2:57pm 12539:

Thanks, Irene.
  2:57pm van:

Wonderful autumn-y feeling show, many thanks Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks for tuning in everybody! Catch you next week.
Avatar 2:59pm Sean in Bristol UK:
