"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

It's like a Riley retrospective these past few weeks . . . Not that I'm complaining.

Good morning!

Bonjour John
I sense a pattern with those Terry Riley starters

headphones on in 1971 tripping happy days
Avatar Wed. 9/16/15 6:21am John Allen:

good morning all. yes we are under a very slow moving terry riley countdown.
Avatar Wed. 9/16/15 6:23am pierre:

that is very pleasant
Avatar Wed. 9/16/15 6:36am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Morning JA. You could play three hours of Riley every week and I wouldn't complain.
@jamesie Must have been tripping pretty hard, as this came out in '72 : )
  Wed. 9/16/15 7:02am Óskar:

Off-topic question: What is the name of the Middle Eastern sounding song that I hear every day before the webcast starts?
Avatar Wed. 9/16/15 7:09am the Canterbury wood-elf:

@Óskar That's Nachum Segal's intro music for his "JM in the AM".
You might be able to find out here: jmintheam.org
  Wed. 9/16/15 7:12am Óskar:

Thanks wood-elf. At least I know now it's Jewish. The investigation continues...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/16/15 7:16am Īke:

Hi folks. Hi @Óskar, I think that's Israel's national anthem or something like that? It's quite rousing, pretty much the only good music they play though IMHO. (They almost never break out any good klezmer.)
  Wed. 9/16/15 7:18am Óskar:

Found it! It's "Modeh Ani Lefanecha Melech" by Regesh. Seems pretty obscure. May have to track down the CD. I love that track.
Now, back to The John Allen Show :)

Tibetan Buddhists have been celebrating the Dalai Lama's 80th birthday all this year. And i reckon Terry Riley has got something rather Dalai Lama-like about him in his gentle persona and approach to music.

@Īke The Israeli national anthem gets played at the *end* of each show (Nachum always sez something like "Brothers and sisters in Israel, we stand with you"), so we get to hear a bit of that several days a week too. It's the only national anthem that ever gets played non-ironically on WFMU, and very very often. Hmm.

The only thing close the the US' national anthem I recall hearing here is when Ken plays Evolution Control Committee's "Star Spangled Bologna."

Yes. I love Wednesday morning.

HaTikvah ("The Hope") - Israel's National Anthem. The words to Israel's national anthem were written in 1886 by Naphtali Herz Imber, an English poet originally from Bohemia. The melody was written by Samuel Cohen, an immigrant from Moldavia.

When Doug Schulkind did his show from JC on the airwaives, the segue of from the last brass notes of HaTikvah to the first bass notes of Doug's intro "Alchemy of Juju" always used to kill me.
