Avatar Mon. 10/26/15 9:35am Utopiast:

If I may be serious for a moment (and I can), let me say that this morning's show is yet another example of how much I learn each time I tune into (log onto) WFMU. As a superficial consumer of pop music throughout my life, I was not exposed to the breadth and depth of music that WFMU exposes in its immense library. I thank that special person who provided the gateway to this door of perception. Pluck your string...

Jim Sullivan (Lord Sitar) is said to have taught sitar to George Harrison. Sullivan did exploit but he truly was an innovator in this regard.

As a first call London session musician, it seems likely that Sullivan was recording sitar parts for various purposes before they were appearing on pop records.

Yeah, I think so, Joe...that's Columbia U, right? I stopped on it cuz it sounded like it could be FMU and it was a while before the DJ came on to back announce.

Great album & always glad if it's not 'My White Bicycle' again...
Avatar Mon. 10/26/15 10:56am Joe McG:

@Mike: Yes, I used to listen quite often to their Sunday night Indian classical show. Thanks for reminding me!
Avatar Mon. 10/26/15 10:56am ----|d¢ (pät)|----:

although this sounds pretty much like My White Bicycle.

KNEW it was only a matter of time until Steve Howe came into this!

Hey Joe, still adjusting to this Monday malarkey.
Avatar Mon. 10/26/15 11:01am Joe McG:

@Brian: Me, too! We'll get there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/26/15 11:01am Mike East:

nice @Joe! Will definitely remember that one. I usually head to BAI for olde timey radio at that time, but I wasn't into what they were playing last night. Its so great to have so many options, without even needing the internet!

All this sitar is making me feel like I'm dining in one of those Indian restaurants on E. 6th street in the East Village (on drugs).

"For Fox Sake" - brilliant.

yeah, you guys are lucky with all your good radio. We have jack doink down here...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 10/26/15 11:04am Brian in UK:

Joe, the sun is shinging outside, got me thinking of so many Sixties sounds. Original Nirvana, Dantalions Chariot. All the R'n B groups grew their hair and started wearing kaftans.
Avatar Mon. 10/26/15 11:05am Joe McG:

Brian, I can't believe you just named the group I have cued up.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/26/15 11:06am Mike East:

pretty much all country music and political talk down there, right, DC?
Avatar Mon. 10/26/15 11:08am ----|d¢ (pät)|----:

not country. Use to have bluegrass but they replaced that with more talk. Every once in a while you can find some interesting Latin music or go go but usually not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 10/26/15 11:10am Brian in UK:

If memory serves I bought Heartful of Soul and You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling on the same day. Early '65? What a great year, the music changed its shape and the LP became credible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/26/15 11:11am Gaylord Fields:

This show will lack for CanCon if there's no Poppy Family. You do want Canadians to like your show, don't you, Joe?
Avatar    Mon. 10/26/15 11:12am Chris from DC:

One or two overnights a week on one station there's good freeform jazz and experimental music on, but otherwise DC is a wasteland.
Avatar Mon. 10/26/15 11:12am Joe McG:

@Gaylord: I have the first Poppy LP with me. Should I hit "Free from the City"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 10/26/15 11:12am Brian in UK:

Joe, will there be a 'phasing' set? Did you folks call it that?
  Mon. 10/26/15 11:12am P-90:

@ Brian: Good call on Dantalian's Chariot, not a band we heard much here. And your comment about English R&B groups suddenly wearing kaftans and growing their hair sums up a huge chapter of rock evolution at a particular point.
  Mon. 10/26/15 11:14am Brendan:

WAMU used to have a great bluegrass/folk afternoon thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/26/15 11:14am MattBelow:

Within You, Without You. Still stands the test of time, not much else on Sgt Pepper is up there. Took me years to realise the qualities of Revolver over Pepper..

There's been talk about a Tomorrow reunion in the works for a few years, btw. They're all on board, just have to work out the details. I have a feeling they'll stick to the UK, though.
