Good morning, Jeffrey. Sorry to have missed so much fine music, now along for the rest of your show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 6:53am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...interesting - somewhat different tone to this Strawbs version; good job w/ the unenviable task of being compared to Richard Thompson on guitar...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 7:03am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...okay - I use the word 'album' for whatever format - since it originally means 'collection' - you can have a 'photo album' ferinstance...especially if your turntable don't work : p ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 7:04am Sem Chumbo:

Well said, JD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 7:05am Sem Chumbo:

Saved me a post just then, RevRab. Quite so, not the physical thing but the collected work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 7:08am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I guess if you wanted to be all MerrianWebsters about it - you could say the same for 'record' - since they're all recordings - but 'record' is more associated w/ them grooved vinyl platters of course (it just is, due to the length & impotance of that there vinyl Era) - 'rekkids' even more so...

Irene played some shearwater last week. Some good stuff. Good morning all

Pretending to be Canadian is the first step in the project, Jeffrey.
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:03am mike east:

My ears were not that sharp but thinking back on it van ettan makes total sense
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:06am LovecraftDude888:

I'm only coming on here (sorry Jeff) briefly this a.m. to complain and protest, loudly, about Pseu, and how she was treating various listeners on her show last night, and how totally and utterly nasty and unprofessional she is/was. This will not stand. I'm going to formally write a letter of complaint to WFMU for what it's worth. I mean, it's not fair, she shouldn't be a professional DJ if she's going to act that unprofessional and bizarre. And since when is it ok for a DJ to bully and browbeat their listeners on the interactive board here as well? Uncool.
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:06am LovecraftDude888:

And Mr. Rabbit was a witness to all that...I think??
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 8:07am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Xin Nian Hao – Happy New Year – 新 年 好
- Happy Wood Horse Year, DJ JD & Shrunken Planteers !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 8:10am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I missed it last night LDude; I was on her comments board the previous week - on which I was ranting rhetoric myself about young people & contempo Top40; I felt she made some valid points *then*, & so did some of us - all good & nothing personal.
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:10am mike east:

@lcd I'd suggest not listening to her show. Not much anyone can do other than that. Unpaid dj's on a free form station can run their shows however they want.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 8:11am Snortley:

That's what Pseu does, because... because she's Pseu. Besides, at FMU, unprofessionalism isn't a bug, it's a feature.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 8:13am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- & no critique of her program either - & since I haven't seen what she said - or anyone else did - last night - I don't have an opinion about it @ present (I can't contradict you LDude).
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:16am LovecraftDude888:

Er...ok guys, but it got pretty out of hand, I thought, and she's decidedly unprofessional and psychotic, bullying, etc. I sent a complaint over to Ken today. sorry RR I thought you were on there last night too but then I noticed you were off the board later on...I think.
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:17am LovecraftDude888:

Plus, I tried to back her up and tell her I liked the show and her music, but she still attacked me and got hostile!!! She's wacked out.
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:17am LovecraftDude888:

Well, I'm going to Pseu her...just kidding.
Avatar Sat. 2/1/14 8:18am SSS:

Welcome, LovecraftDude
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:19am LovecraftDude888:

I tried taking the high road and got run over...anyway gotta get breakfast....thanks SSS! thanks Jeff...jeez i missed some good stuff here I was asleep....back a bit later..
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:19am LovecraftDude888:

and then some guy told me my fave bands all sucked. I was like, ok thanks.
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:21am mike east:

Times like that u just gotta log off dude.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 8:23am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- oh - I may have popped in @ the beginning.
...It's natural that people around here care about music & culture & are opinionated about it - & it ought to be good that in the Community here (for it is) we can communicate w/ other people who have something to say about it...we can't expect everyone in the FreeForm scene to have identical tastes or ideas either - & we wouldn't want it to in the end. One hopes no one calls anyone a poo-poo head or any feelings get hurt....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 8:23am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...we're herding cats here - yerknow...
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:30am LovecraftDude888:

Mike..I expressed my disgust and then went to bed and logged right off. I was like..this ain't high school folks. or Jr. Good lord. But the thing is I was backing her up...not tearing down!! That's what got me pissed off the most. And she was just not listening to reason. I DO listen to new pop music...I'm 45 yrs. old....and I just find a lot of it wanting these days...not all. But you cannot sit there and assume we don't listen to new pop and club or whatever music...I do. But much of it just doesn't float my boat. Ga Ga.....she's like, ok....she's alright, for example, but nothing I would rush out and buy. But, I give it a shot!
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:31am LovecraftDude888:

And Pseu is sitting there playing old AND new music herself, and a lot of it is for us older crusties..I mean..from the 70s and 80s etc.
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:31am LovecraftDude888:

herding cats? Wow that could be interesting.
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:36am KP:

Great show
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 8:38am Ken From Hyde Park:

@KP - Yes...great today. Giving Pete his due...RIP.
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:42am LovecraftDude888:

music snob my butt....I was like I'm no snob if I listen to Katy Perry and I like her big boobs but not her music so much...as long as I don't dismiss either out of hand!
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:42am Santos L Halper:

I'm sure JD would rather his comments board be about his show, much like Pseu does. Knowing her, I could tell it wasn't going to go well when people started having sidebar convos right from the get-go about their fav bands (unrelated to anything she played AFAIK).

On another topic...enjoying the show Jeffrey!
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:43am LovecraftDude888:

I wasn't aware she was that concerned about that...anyway, will be mindful of that in future though. I know it's not supposed to be for just your own private club etc. Ok.
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:43am LovecraftDude888:

Anyhoo...this show is guten. I used to make rock candy as a kid that science experiment bit....so nasty
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:45am LovecraftDude888:

oh Rabbit I thought you were there to back me up...oh the humanity! Even Frangry was nicer to me...hehe. I can't believe I missed Sandy Denny today here. Sigh.
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:46am mike east:

U gotta let it go lcdude.

First Seeger tribute I've heard. Thanks Jeffrey
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 8:46am mauri:

I could do a trip now to the big rock candy mountain.
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:47am LovecraftDude888:

I will..I shall let it go. not worth hanging on to it. the hook. Lick the mountain....
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:49am Santos L Halper:

In my brief time as a long-distance listener I've found DJs to be much like most people: nice and interesting, quirky, occasionally cranky, and wanting to be appreciated for what we do.
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:50am LovecraftDude888:

I agree but she was just getting out of hand and unreasonable. And she seemed to be wishing to dismiss the "oldsters" and get some young 18 yr. old stud listeners....well...good luck find me some 18 yr olds that like The Shoes or Echo and Bunnymen and I will give you a grand! Not happening
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:52am LovecraftDude888:

I worked with some young chick daughter of my boss 5 yrs. ago she was like 17 yrs. old...she was like "can't get into most of that old 80s new wave stuff.....The Cure is ok". ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 8:52am beavoux:

Great show how about "Goofing off Suite"?
  Sat. 2/1/14 8:52am ?:

Wow, you're making me realize that the early Byrds were as much a Pete Seeger cover band as they were a Dylan cover band.

Videotaped Seeger getting an award at Riverside Church
5-6 years ago..
he remained consistant in energy and music agility (!)

Thanks for this morning, Jeffrey. Nice serving of Mr. Seeger, much appreciated. See you next week.

Thanks for the show DJ Jeffrey Davison, My own personal tribute to Pete Seger...STOP FRACKING.

Thanks for the Pete Seeger set

I'm pretty Seeger'd out by now, so might save the last set of him for a rainy day, but time for a little more catching up...
