Did BLT spill over to 3:02 or 3:03 there? That track at 3:00-3:02ish was still John Fahey?

Sound: Vocals are a bit rough, fuzzy. Others hear that?

Quite a few years ago, I asked Jon to write "something anarchistic" on a CD he was signing. He wrote "Respect the flag."

- reference also Pink Floyd's 'Astronomy Domine': 'Dan Dare - who's there?'...

By "flag" he might have meant a copy protection flag. He didn't want you to rip and burn the disk!

Maybe, Dean, maybe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm

and a crack of thunder is heard as Jon Langford sings the words "inclement weather."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm

heard by me, at least.

"Dan Dare" is a classic, the English Buck Rogers, not as well known here as it should be, even b SF and comics aficionados.
Avatar 3:31pm

I think Go4 themselves were disappointed with the sound of it, which is why they re-recorded it 25 years later ("Return the Gift")

paul b:

My sister has a beach house in Milton Delaware, When there I often pop into the Dogfish Head brewery store (as one does) I just realized, looking at Irwin's playlist page, that YOU'RE THE GUY WHO DOES A LOT OF THAT DOGFISH HEAD LABEL AND POSTER ART (Johnny Cask etc) Consider me even more of a fan than I was before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm

love that brewery, paul b.!

My uncle is next door neighbors with the Dogfish owner. That's some huge factory they built in Milton recently...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm

Well, it's not like there's much else happening back home on the Delmarva Peninsula. If they have to build beer factories somewhere, build them next to the "Delmarvelous" chicken farms on that flat boring land where I grew up. Maybe the beer will taste like chicken-fish heads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm

listening in Austin, TX. good stuff, all new to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm
paul b:

Home of the 90 minute IPA, Burton Baton. G. Yeah, They got a pipeline that runs about a quarter mile from brewery bldg to the bottling plant, It's gradually become a good sized facility. Milton can't complain

i couldn't help but be late.
...Howdy Irwin,Jon, others.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm

is the Documentary available anywhere? if anyone knows.

A Graham Parker vibe here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm

as much as i love Hank Williams, i sorta like the mekons' "lost highway" better than the original! i often want to hear it at the pub,but it's not in the jukebox there.

...'digging this.

I thought it was "hell's" roof. Who is Hal?

how bout some mekons?

fifty shades of frank.
Avatar 4:23pm

Hi folks. Bruised and battered at work, but still standing.

Does Joe Frank still read these? Did his voice change? Sped up and pitch-shifted? Something is off about these recent Joe Frank episodes?
a guy:

The recodings come from various periods in Joe Franks long career. Irwin doesn't play them in order. Sometimes we get Younger Joe sometimes we get Old Joe. This is the first time i've ever heard Singin Joe.

pretty wacky!

Joe's being a kinda of a dick. I like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm

is it him or his character who is a dick? hard to say, i guess.
Avatar 4:52pm
Sem Chumbo:

Sorry, common. I confused the actor and the part. The role is that of a kind of dick, I think, when it comes to specifying a sex worker.
But I wonder who Joe had in mind when he wrote the part?

Anyone receive the 7SD newsletter today? The plan is to have a Google hangout session with Ken & Andy. Ken was looking for people to send in their Gmail e-mail info to participate. (Not sure if Irwin has mentioned that; I was on the phone for a bit.)

Ken from HP is correct: if you want to participate, email your gmail to ken at wfmu dot org.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm

RRN63 - Earthlings might be bad, but extraterrestrials SUCK. They're evil. You saw that TZ episode "To Serve Man"? They're ALL like that. And they have bad fashion sense. They dress like idiots. They think they're ahead of the curve, but they're so far behind. Brooklyn hipsters dress better and even their beards are better than those of aliens, who lack facial hair.

Yeah that's why we're shooting Doritos commercials into the big dipper.

i like the the alien in the original alien was just naked. he looked pretty cool.

oh sorry, that was a she.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm

You've had "offers from other orbs," Irwin? Stop fronting! Everybody knows Neptune didn't really want you, Jupiter has a terrible housing crisis, and Saturn just SAYS it gets good FMU reception, but actually doesn't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm

yay! moondog! there's a handsome alien for ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm

And don't even ACT like you could hitch a ride to Alpha Centauri or those other solar systems. I've been sticking my thumb out waiting for a passing ship for 500 years, and *nothing*! These are the boonies, I tells ya.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm

Since the alien society seems to follow the bee pattern, the alien in Alien would seem to be a male drone. But what do I know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm

Ike: I exaggerated. Nebraska made an offer. They're sort of like another planet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm

@Ike: Maybe if you started hanging out at secluded spots, preferably in the middle of Iowa or somewhere, and dressed like a stereotypical redneck and drove a pickup truck, the aliens would come, since that seems to be the one segment of Earth society that keeps getting picked up and probed by alien beings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm

Heh, @Caryn, excellent point, but of course, most of us know better than to let the probers pick you up. Those jerks aren't even usually going anywhere but to other planets full of gullible rednecks.
