Holy crap that was a great cover.
  12:07am Jared:

Avatar 12:11am Eiderdown:

What a way to start the show...yowza
Avatar 12:12am Jeff Conklin:

Evening/morning, all.
  12:14am Carmichael:

I have heard not of this show. Fine start, and thanks for playing Hawkwind. Even though you didn't.
Avatar 12:17am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks for checking us out, Carmichael. Buckle up.
Avatar 12:18am coelacanth:

greetings Jeff Conklin and all.
Killer so far!.. I may like that hawkwind cover better than the original.
Avatar 12:19am Jeff Conklin:

Hey, Coel. Well, it's certainly zonked out for sure.
Avatar 12:21am T90FANCY:

Killing it, Jeff.
Avatar 12:25am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, T90.
  12:30am Carmichael:

I am ready. Release the hounds!
Avatar 12:39am Eiderdown:

So many tasty licks
Avatar 12:46am Bayta:

Great show so far. Incidentally, it was Telecult Powers that lead me to EVR, after which I followed you here, Jeff. So thanks to you and Telecult Powers for helping me discover WFMU!
Avatar 12:47am Jeff Conklin:

Killer chain of events, Bayta!
Avatar 12:49am Eiderdown:

Tolchok is sending me OUT THERE...digging it!!
Avatar 12:59am Bayta:

Love, love, love this Tolchok. I'd clicky-star it a hundred times if I could.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02am Tome:

this ,,, what I like about after Mid WFMU ,, still 1!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04am Rory:

Wow this has been a really good show. Keep it up Jeff!
Avatar 1:04am Bayta:

Interesting label..all their digital albums on bandcamp are priced at a flat $1000. skylanternrecords.bandcamp.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10am Rory:

There's been so many good new labels lately it's hard to keep up. So much shit to buy and not enough money too get it all.
Avatar 1:12am Jeff Conklin:

Hey Tome and Rory. Thanks for checking out the show.
Avatar 1:12am Jeff Conklin:

I spoke to Sky Lantern, apparently its some weird Bandcamp thing. If you buy the tape (6 bucks) you get the DL for free.
Avatar 1:24am Bayta:

Ah so they're not into selling digital only?
  1:38am sara:

loving the show, thanks jeff
Avatar 1:40am Eiderdown:

What was that Mar-Vista track? More info please...
Avatar 1:44am Eiderdown:

Avatar 1:48am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, Sara.
  1:57am rw:

Huh... I kind of want to click on the $1000 download. I wonder how often that happens...
Avatar 1:59am Eiderdown:

Gotta tune out for a bit but maybe I'll dip my toes back in...great show as always Jeff!
  1:59am rw:

Oh, and JC, I've been downloading your shows to my phone for playback in Los Angeles traffic. It's usually pretty perfect. Keeps me awake (most of the time).
Avatar 2:01am Jeff Conklin:

Very cool, RW! Thanks.
  2:02am rw:

No. Thank YOU! Always appreciate the shows!
  2:05am rw:

Glad you've been getting so many fill-ins.
Avatar 2:06am Bayta:

About time you got a regular slot imo.
Avatar 2:06am Jeff Conklin:

Night, Adam.
  2:07am John in Texas:

Better late than never - looks like I missed some intriguing things during the first two hours.
Avatar 2:20am coelacanth:

i agree with Bayta.
Avatar 2:22am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, guys.
  2:23am rw:

We all agree with Bayta.
  2:26am John in Texas:

Avatar 2:27am coelacanth:

'good thing that ended...i would've gotten tired of it in another hour.
  2:27am rw:

Not that anybody cares, but the batteries just died in my keyboard and it started repeatedly undoing a bunch of work I'd been doing! Aaaaaargh!
Avatar 2:31am coelacanth:

coincidentally i've been shopping for rechargeable batteries for the last 2 hours. i'd already thought "eneloop" was the best (by far) but didn't know there were so many options.
  2:38am rw:

Sounds like you're a little OCD like me. I like to buy different brands. Helps keep them a little more organized. Also, you may already have one, but a battery tester is super helpful with rechargeables. You can test them after charging to see how well they're holding up.
  2:48am rw:

Whew. I just found a quick way to recover the files.

Thanks again Jeff for another groovy show!
  2:49am rw:

Van Der Graff Generator! Super groovy.
  2:49am John in Texas:

Dead batteries will bounce and good batteries won't......not sure if this applies to the rechargeable kind?
  2:51am rw:

Is this true? I just had a car battery die and one of the signs was that it was a little bloated.
Avatar 2:53am coelacanth:

i want this to be the last time i buy batteries for at least 10 years. The different models & "generations" have different properties. i think i've got it!
  2:54am db:

I never realized before how there's a trace of Van Der Graaf Generator in the Stranglers - the organ, odd rhythms, and vocals.
Avatar 2:54am coelacanth:

don't bounce your car battery!
  2:55am rw:

coelcanth: Do tell. We go through these things like crazy.
  2:56am rw:

I had a girlfriend who was a Stranglers fan. I should have married her.
  2:57am db:

but maybe she would have strangled you ;-)
  2:58am John in Texas:

I was referring to AA and AAA batteries - good night!
Avatar 2:58am Bayta:

Thanks for an awesome show, Jeff!
Avatar 2:58am coelacanth:

"eneloop" brand. Now owned by panasonic. I've had 8 for 6-7 years,charging the whole time with the wrong kind of charger,& they show no signs of weakening.
Vivitar & ray o vac SUCK. duracel are just okay.
Avatar 2:59am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks for hanging in there , everybody. See you down the road.
  2:59am rw:

Cool. Thanks coelacanth. I'm on it.

Killer show JC!
Avatar 3:00am coelacanth:

Most excellent sir. Thank you Jeff.
  3:01am rw:

db: I probably would have deserved it.
Avatar 3:01am coelacanth:

(...& ebay's got better deals than amazon.)
Avatar 12:57pm Wm.:

Playlist looks great, thanks again for filling in! That Hijokaidan cover has always been a favorite....
