Hello Dave.

Dave, hey there. Just got back from Lake Tahoe, glad to hear the show.

Hey there Ryab, Carmichael

@Carmichael: Very cool. How was it?
  10:09pm JakeGould:

Yo. Moon almost gone in Brooklyn. DeBlasio is really screwing things up. Him and Obama.
Avatar 10:10pm Dave Mandl:

@Jake: Groan.
Avatar 10:11pm Dave Mandl:

I totally missed the moon, though. Can't see it from the FMU studio.
  10:12pm Carmichael:

Fun, but very depleted. One of the worst droughts ever in CA. We're all praying for rain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Andrew Waterloo:

We went outside to watch the moon. Then the clouds all came to watch the moon too.
Avatar 10:16pm Dave Mandl:

@Carmichael: Terrible. The stories about the fires are heartbreaking. And the old Sequoias.
Avatar 10:20pm HollyT:

Greetings, D, folks. Happy supermoon!
  10:24pm Syd:

Hiya Dave!
Avatar 10:26pm slugluv1313:

All cloudy outside now :(
Avatar 10:26pm HollyT:

Don't worry Dave, it was underwhelming. You didn't miss much.
  10:27pm Carmichael:

Most of the Sequoias were saved, thankfully. But sadly some lives were lost in the process. Let's go look at the moon and maybe hear some Nick Drake.
  10:27pm sean:

you cant see it its totaally blocked right now!
Avatar 10:27pm Dave Mandl:

Hey Holly, Syd, slugluv1313, sean.
Avatar 10:27pm HollyT:

Is that Tracy Thorne from Everything but the Girl?
Avatar 10:28pm Dave Mandl:

Sorry the moon was disappointing/invisible. Probably depends on where you are.
Avatar 10:28pm Dave Mandl:

@Holly: Right you are.

Evening, Dave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Dumb cloud cover setting in. Just catching occasional peeks of the moon stuff.
Avatar 10:30pm Dave Mandl:

Evening greyhoos, Ken.
Avatar 10:34pm Dave Mandl:

Anyone recognize this guy's voice?
  10:35pm Carmichael:

Ok, Wilde Flowers, Canterbury? Kevin Ayers and all that?
Avatar 10:35pm Dave Mandl:

Yup! A very young Kevin Ayers.
Avatar 10:36pm HollyT:

Haha, what the hell?
Avatar 10:36pm slugluv1313:

oh wow Blind Man's Penis, have not heard this one in ages!
Avatar 10:37pm slugluv1313:

weird, sorry for the duplicate -- have no idea how that happened!
Avatar 10:38pm Dave Mandl:

@Holly: Long story. I'll tell it (not too long) on the air.
Avatar 10:39pm Dave Mandl:

@slugluv1313: No duplicate, don't worry.
  10:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I have to say - watching the Moon turn red was a lot warmer in Southern California
- Guten Tzag Mandlmaniacs !
  10:45pm Carmichael:

See the documentary called "Off the Charts". Wonderful insight into that industry.
Avatar 10:45pm HollyT:

ohhh...! I've heard about this before. I think the 365 Days project has a bunch of these, no?
Avatar 10:46pm HollyT:

@carmichael--Oh! I'll look for that. :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm pacific standard simon:

Commie moon over Seattle. Clear skies, amazingly. Live cam here:

  10:47pm Carmichael:

On netflix, holly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm melinda:

Great story behind a Blind Man's Penis.
  10:49pm greyhoos:

"Because it needs it explaining, otherwise it doesn't make sense." They say the worst jokes are the ones that need explaining. "Blind Man's Penis" pretty much requires the explanation. I believe Trubee said in an interview that he encountered the ad for the recording service while working a 3rd shift at a convenience store, and then decided to take advantage off the lyrics in about 3 minutes tops. Or so I read many years ago.
Avatar 10:50pm Dave Mandl:

Greetings melinda, pss, RRN63.
Avatar 10:50pm Dave Mandl:

@melinda: Thanks. I felt like I had to tell the whole story. Makes no sense otherwise.
Avatar 10:50pm HollyT:

Thanks, carmichael
  10:51pm Carmichael:

Trubee himself explains it in the first 10 minutes or so of the doc.
  10:51pm marc15:

I don't see a moon out tonight
Avatar 10:52pm Dave Mandl:

@Carmichael: Didn't know about that documentary. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm melinda:

It's funny even without an explanation, but bizarre enough that explanation helps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm pacific standard simon:

Hah... the wind blowing on the microphone of the webcam is blending with the music.
Avatar 10:54pm Dave Mandl:

Next one's for you, Holly.
Avatar 10:54pm slugluv1313:

i have the "Blind Man's Penis" 45 somewhere -- i believe that it has the story on the back of the sleeve, maybe even a copy of the ad for song lyrics too?
Avatar 10:55pm HollyT:

All this talk about the moon just reminded me of years ago when there was talk that corporations had supposedly devised a way to project logos onto the moon. Does anyone remember that? There was this great, sadly long- defunct zine, along the lines of a very low-budget Adbusters, that had a story about it. Wish I could remember the name of that zine.
Avatar 10:58pm Dave Mandl:

@slugluv1313: Wow, I've never seen that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm melinda:

Orange moon here in Maine!
Avatar 11:00pm Dave Mandl:

@melinda: Fab. I guess I'll see all the photos on Instagram tomorrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm sugarwolf:

I remember reading somewhere that the lyrics he sent in were "Stevie Wonder's penis" and when he got the song back it was changed to blind man.
  11:00pm Carmichael:

Those guys were the real deal. If you paid up, you would get about 50 copies of your song on 45s. Surely they showed up in used record stores.
Avatar 11:00pm Dave Mandl:

@Holly: I remember that. I guess they never figured out how to do it, or you'd be seeing it all the time.
Avatar 11:01pm Dave Mandl:

@Carmichael: It was kind of the deal of the century. I don't think they charged all that much. They must have really cranked those records out.
  11:01pm Mr Mooney:

Mrs. Carmichael!
  11:01pm greyhoos:

@sugarwolf: You're right. I completely forgot that part.
Avatar 11:02pm Dave Mandl:

@sugarwolf: That's right!
Avatar 11:03pm slugluv1313:

@ Dave -- when i find the durned thing i will be reminded to scan it and post here! :)
and omg sugarwolf is absolutely right!!! it was originally "Stevie Wonder's Penis" -- SOMEWHERE there is an article (maybe this came with the 45 too?) with a copy of that title's "rejection letter"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm sugarwolf:

I feel like I read this in RE/Search's Pranks??
Avatar 11:04pm Dave Mandl:

@sugarwolf: Yeah, I think it might have been in there. But of course there was also the Song Poems CD that came out about ten years ago. Had a ton of these songs, including Trubee's.
  11:06pm Carmichael:

Watch the doc. All of your questions will be answered.
  11:07pm Carmichael:

They spend a lot of time on Rodd Eskelin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm pacific standard simon:

I wonder if anyone ever sent in a "song poem" that was just a sheet of cussing.
  11:10pm Carmichael:

@pss: watch. The. Doc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm pacific standard simon:

OK, OK! Lucky I have Netflix.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm pacific standard simon:

Actually, they did list the girls' ages on the first Runaways album. A selling point, I think.
Avatar 11:21pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: Hahaha. OK, point taken.
Avatar 11:21pm JakeGould:

@PSS: Very creepy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm pacific standard simon:

@Jake - Kim Fowley's middle name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm pacific standard simon:

No, that was Alvin "Creepy" Karpis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm common:

Avatar 11:31pm JakeGould:

@PSS: Kim “The Shocker” Fowley. It works.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm pacific standard simon:

I just checked -- the dragon is starting to barf the moon back up, so we WILL have a regular full moon tomorrow.
Avatar 11:32pm JakeGould:

@PSS: You see! All those virgins we sacrificed worked! Something good came of it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm pacific standard simon:

And how, Jake.
  11:33pm P-90:

Nice show tonight, Dave. Per usual.
  11:34pm PMD:

Too busy watching the moon to comment
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm pacific standard simon:

I'm pretty sure the webcam I'm watching is turned sideways.
Avatar 11:35pm Dave Mandl:

@P-90: Thanks.
@PMD: You're forgiven tonight.
Avatar 11:36pm HollyT:

Next month: America can, should, must, and will...BLOW UP THE MOON!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm pacific standard simon:

Poo... Off the Charts aint on Netflix no more.

that was zilly flick
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm pacific standard simon:

Hey Jake, we forgot to sacrifice one of the virgins.
Avatar 11:53pm JakeGould:

@PSS: Give her a bottle of soda, a bag of chips, a “I Survived!” pin and make sure she gets that voucher that says that we’re happy with her service and we’ll be sacrificing her sometime in the future.
Avatar 11:54pm JakeGould:

@PSS: Also be sure to take a picture for the “Wall of Sacrificial Virgins” we have in the lobby so other virgins can be inspired by her potential sacrifice.
  11:57pm Carmichael:

Sum bitch. Check youtube?

G'nite, Dave. G'nite Jake, pss, frenchee, ScottC, Carmichael. G'nite John Boy.
