Well maybe not the best, but it's the only show we have at the moment Kafuka.....but thanks for the vote of confidence and thanks for everyone who stays up and listens at this brutal fucking hour......

Tons of cool avant garde music coming out of italy though Kafuka, my cat is an Alien Etc..
  4:41am Kafuka:

We have Good things, like boring machine records and other Good stuff. Radio is a land of desolation
  4:56am P-90:

@ Jherweg and Kafuka: The last time I was in Italy I spent quite a few hours listening to the radio, and yes it was a little disappointing. A lot of mundane, top-forty type of programming. Jazz restricted to a few hours here and there.
Nothing remotely progressive or free-form...
  4:59am Schlockmaster:

I dont think DUNE by JODOROWSKI would be the coolest thing you ever saw. All of his films are a mess, kinda like NICHOLAS ROEGs early films or like ZABRISKI POINT is, Im not one to glorify that kind of hippie film making. Those films can be watched out of an art historical aspect and interest, but as filmworks they dont stand up to time like, just for one example, most films from PECKINPAW or even CASSAVETES do. I hope I did make my point understandably, all the best from southern Germany.
  4:59am Schlockmaster:

Anyway, keep up the good show!

Good morning Jonathan and listeners
Avatar 5:05am Jherweg:

Hey Fred!
Avatar 5:07am Jherweg:

I Hear what you're saying but, I don;t think Jodorowsky had ever assembled a team like that , or had the funding that that production would have had , had it gone forward, We'll never know, But i want to believe it could have been the greatest thing ever.
  5:11am P-90:

@Schlockmaster: I was very friendly with some of the people in Los Angeles who were hired by Jodorowsky. Funny thing, I've carried essentially the same story the recent documentary tells with me since the seventies. It wasn't quite like Jonathan said, the Hollywood studios didn't turn him down, he HAD backing in Europe and spent six months in pre-production in Paris. Then the backing fell through and production halted just a few weeks before the sets were to be built. People I knew had gone to Paris, swept up by Jodorowsky's enthusiasm,
and were gravely upset, not because they lost a job, but because everyone thought Jodorowsky's Dune movie would be a milestone. I can tell you that it was not going to be like his low-budget, mystical/experimental films, but more like a polished Science Fiction spectacle. It MIGHT have been a mess, but no one involved (including Orson Wells, etc.) thought so...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16am fred:

Jonathan, your radio sacrifice is appreciated. Your pain, our gain
  5:21am Kafuka:

A Modern radio martyr!
  5:22am marmalade kitty:

That VU track makes everything alright :)
  5:23am Schlockmaster:

P90, I can hear you, and I can believe that the crew around Jodoriwski would be enthusiastic and would have thiught that Dune would be the thing... but From where I stand those things that never were, don't count, not even from a what if? perspective. Jodorowski wasnt the man to pull it off. This is the same kinda thinking that wishes for Jack Kirby to have had " finished" the 4th world books, but fotgets that Jack was a starter, an idea man and not a great finisher. analog to Jodorowski: he was a great mystic and write good scripts and books, but he was NOT a great filmmaker.

Fucking awesome show. Love the various rants and such too, bringing personality into a WFMU show's mic breaks as well as excellent music is A++. I passed out at 4:30 or so, so I'll be sure to check the archive later for the rest.
