An underground journey through the history of psychedelic rock, modern music, shimmering noise, free jazz, punk, funk, children's records played at the wrong speed, tape cut-up, static, the composition of decomposition, and subversive spoken word.

This song is sort of out o character for the show but I liked it so I thought I'd play it.

Ray Bradbury was good friends with Rod Serling.. imagine those two hanging out and what they talked about?
Avatar 🎙 Swag For Life Member 3:52am

I think i read everything Bradbury wrote when i was in high school after being forced to read one of his short stories by an english teacher.

And i don't care who knows.... I have read books since i graduated.

Jon, just got myself a copy of A Ayler 'Spiritual Unity' anniversary ed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56am
pacific standard simon:

@Jherweg - They began as friends, but Bradbury inevitably had to write a "don't contact me again" letter to Serling because Serling couldn't manage his tendency to "borrow" ideas for stories from others.
Avatar 3:57am

Sweet......love that record!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58am

@pacificstandard Simon er, yes! Unless I've dramatically misread bill hicks and he was an anti-drugs, military industrial complex corporate shill. I really hope not

I bought a set of bookends that was carved out of the ceiling joists from Ray Bradbury's house. Love 'em.

John Lydon recently attained the age of 60. I'd bet you he lives past the age of 90.

...then again, maybe that's just another of his lies.
tinkle bear:

'Mega' donations from Australia? Sure you aren't thinking of New Zealand?
Maybe if you ask the US DOJ nicely they'll share some of the money they stole from Kim Dotcom...
Avatar 4:33am

Yeah or the mega upload guy?
tinkle bear:

yep, that's the one.

My fave Ray Bradbury book would have to be "Dandelion Wine"... his description of the smell of cut lawns in summer still resonates...
tinkle bear:

greysquad-- that book is on the reading shelf in our bathroom.
tinkle bear:

...too bad the cut-lawn smell doesn't permeate the room...

"our bathroom"? tinkle bear, tell your friend poo bear to eat less meat...

Junkopia? sorry I missed that! great movie!

There's an amazing people like us Peel session, which she released as a download, and it has short tracks made up of Peel just saying 'er' and 'um'. His style definitely added a huge amount to his appeal
Avatar 🎙 4:47am
Simon P:

I have a big box full of cassettes of Peel shows which i edited live so hardly any have his voice on!
tinkle bear:

greysquad-- good advice. i will pass it on. (not that he'll listen.)

What a waste Simon! The tapes must be awesome, but you miss out on his 'I'm not sure of that was the right speed' general joyous incompetence

I got a second wind and started doing my taxes. The web site just went off-line for maintenance, so I guess I'll try to drift off to sleep now. Stupid taxes!

Thanks @cklequ ! That's great, I'd forgotten about that. Here's the peel session with all the mumblings http://freemusicarchive.org/music/People_Like_Us/John_Peel_Session_2003/
tinkle bear:

Jherweg-- no, you cannot go home already.
not until you play an hour's worth of dulcet tones so that Ken from Hyde Park (and, maybe, coelacanth?) can drift peacefully onto the astral plane.
Avatar 5:16am

What about my peaceful sleep though?

oh yez... got my ticket for the march 28th faUSt show... actually more looking forward to the jowehead opener...
tinkle bear:

that is what public transportation is for.

should be a great combo/show... too bad john bender couldn't get booked..
Avatar 5:21am

Is John Bender even alive?
Avatar 5:21am

I'm convinced that John Hughes named the Breakfast Club Character After John Bender?
Avatar 🎙 5:26am
Simon P:

Ron Morelli !!

discogs doesn't mention that he's croaked (yet). Jherweg, if you're at that show (which I'm sure you'll be), you gotta get BT to play that John Bender take on "Rainy day", before they play... It'll be epic!
Avatar 🎙 5:28am
Simon P:

Jon, maybe you should do a show called The Final Hour
Avatar 5:29am

I would prefer a 2 hour format......3 hours is a little much.....
tinkle bear:

split the shift with nat roe, maybe?
buy him a bag of chips, or something, to sweeten the deal?
Avatar 🎙 5:42am
Simon P:

a least you're not an enigma wrapped in a box..or however it goes

thanks, great show! and I'm gonna check out breakfast club again to see the bender/bender comparison... but I'm guessing that the real "Bender" would be the Ally Sheedy character....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48am

Peace and love? Jon, you are an enigma. Thanks for another cool show!

How about reading the "Decline And Fall Of the Roman Empire"?

Or "War And Peace"?
