For the first few seconds, I thought the first track was the Dead
Avatar 3:13am CDToaster:

Yeah, you're right; they call that a perfect segue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16am pacific standard simon:

I bet I have this show on a CD, from before the Dead started cracking down on boots.
Avatar 3:16am Jeff Conklin:

Morning. Tip of the hat to Dylan on the eve of his 75th.
Avatar 3:18am CDToaster:

Well, the studio version appears on their self-titled album so I think you should have it. Funny, I was just checking that out, too.
  3:22am gail:

thanks for cheering up my monday morning with the rocking music!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22am pacific standard simon:

That means that Harlan Ellison's birthday is only four days away.
Avatar 3:28am Jeff Conklin:

Morning, Gail. Thanks for checking in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28am pacific standard simon:

Is this a Canned Heat jam?
Avatar 3:30am Jeff Conklin:

That one was without the Canned Heat.
Avatar 3:30am Bentangle:

Must give Endless Boogie another listen, whoa.
Avatar 3:30am CDToaster:

That's pretty cool you know birthdays, simon. Wow, you've got a good ear to hear what indeed sounded like a Canned Heat jam! Damn, you're good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31am pacific standard simon:

Um, wha?
Avatar 3:33am CDToaster:

Heck, I'm leaving the board and hitting the sack to enjoy the rest of Jeff's wonderful show, horizontzally. "night all.
Avatar 3:33am Jeff Conklin:

Night, Toast
Avatar 3:36am Bentangle:

I see Akarma releases often, but have never been quite sure if they're a legit label. Some of their releases look a bit legally dubious ...
Avatar 3:41am Jeff Conklin:


Yeah I'm not sure. Based in Italy where anything goes copyright-wise. They've put out tons of great stuff and they usually sound very good.
  3:45am 1968 or so:

I do believe they Do believe ahhh time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53am pacific standard simon:

Fairport was sounding fairly Quicksilver at this point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58am pacific standard simon:

Except for the voices, heh.
  3:59am JoeRay:

I pulled out my drumsticks and played along to the Fairport! Great set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03am pacific standard simon:

I wonder if Richard Thompson and Jon Langford would ever consider recording together? I'd pay a lot of money to hear that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11am pacific standard simon:

There's a Grateful Dead ukulele songbook, which I'm thinking about getting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14am pacific standard simon:

Surf's up!
Avatar 4:15am Jeff Conklin:

@Simon: Are you thinking about getting it and destroying it so there is one less in circulation? If so, I'll chip in...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16am coelacanth:

greetings...digging this...
  4:17am Violet in CA:

Hi all. Liking the show so far!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18am pacific standard simon:

Nope, I used to play "Bertha" and "Uncle John's Band" on a pretty regular basis, and they sounded good on the uke.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18am coelacanth:

- i just pulled out my toaster; i'm playing along with this...
  4:19am John in Texas:

Good morning......this sounds somewhat familiar to throat singer, Soriah Tuvan.
Avatar 4:19am Jeff Conklin:

Nothing sounds good on a "uke"*

*my humble opinion ;)
  4:19am Violet in CA:

Plus you can make toast
Avatar 4:19am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks for checking in, Violet.

Any other first timers listening?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19am coelacanth:

(i mean that in a good way!)
Avatar 4:22am Sem Chumbo:

Good morning, Jeff, coel, VioletiCA, PSS, and all.
These fellows are doing something excellent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22am pacific standard simon:

We are 180 degrees apart on that, Jeff.
  4:23am Violet in CA:

The playlist is pairing very well with a bowl of blue dream
Avatar 4:25am Jeff Conklin:

Is "blue dream" code for something?
  4:26am Violet in CA:

Totally busted
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26am coelacanth:

..and fuck the familiar listeners, apparently...
hey Sem.
  4:27am Violet in CA:

Hi Sem
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28am pacific standard simon:

Yeah, that's what I say
  4:29am Violet in CA:

Let us not create such an aura of disharmony so early on a Monday
Avatar 4:32am Sem Chumbo:

This piece is pairing nicely with a bowl of Quaker oatmeal.
That's code for breakfast:-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33am pacific standard simon:

Odd.. I'm not seeing a credit for Terry Riley in the playlist...
  4:34am Violet in CA:

@Sem haha I like you!
Avatar 4:35am Jeff Conklin:

Hello, Coel. how are you this morning. how was your weekend? What do you have planned for the rest of the day?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36am pacific standard simon:

The moon is high and so am I -- that's code for... um... what?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37am Guido from Cologne:

Good morning Jeff.
Avatar 4:40am Jeff Conklin:

Still want to know what blue dream is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am coelacanth:

hey Jeff, i like your programming. Thank you. ciao.
  4:41am John in Texas:

@Jeff - any chance of being treated to something from the new Steve Gunn album before it's released in June?
Avatar 4:42am greysquad:

"Good bye/Good morning Blue Morning/day/dream"
  4:42am Violet in CA:

That last French song was especially wowzers to me. I am a first time listener and wow I love this show. Blue Dream is a nice hybrid form of marijuana.
Avatar 4:42am Jeff Conklin:

@john: I have not received the album yet and don't think its in the library yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43am pacific standard simon:

Google says Blue Dream is a popular marijuana strain -- like I couldn't guess...
Avatar 4:43am greysquad:

Yea I dug that Catherine Ribeiro + Alpes tune as well....
  4:44am Violet in CA:

Hi grey
Avatar 4:44am Sem Chumbo:

@Jeff: "Blue Dream, a sativa-dominant hybrid originating in California, has achieved legendary status among West Coast strains."

  4:46am Violet in CA:

Wow, great research team has assembled in this little corner of Internet space
  4:46am Bascho Lj:

hi, first time here and I like very much :) greetz from slovenia
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49am pacific standard simon:

That shit is as legal as it's going to get in my small corner of the world, and I no longer care, 45 years later.
Avatar 4:50am Jeff Conklin:

Hey, Bascho. I'd ask you more questions but don't want to piss off the regular listeners.
Avatar 4:51am Sem Chumbo:

@Violet: the answer is out there.
  4:52am Violet in CA:

@Sem How was the oatmeal? Do you have couch lock?
  4:53am josh:

Liking the sound of this Black Eagle Child. Is it just one guy w/looping?
Avatar 4:53am Jeff Conklin:

@josh: I believe so
  4:54am josh:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56am pacific standard simon:

Is the sky getting light outside?
Avatar 4:58am Sem Chumbo:

couch lock: When you get so incredibly stoned that you actually become a part of the couch. It becomes impossible to move.
@Vilote: hehe.
  4:59am Violet in CA:

@Sem: chat hug
Avatar 4:59am Sem Chumbo:

Wait. What? About what?
Avatar 5:00am Sem Chumbo:

Ah, Violet. No harsh in your mellow.
  5:00am Violet in CA:

@Sem: just two souls connecting briefly in time
Avatar 5:03am Sem Chumbo:

Yeah, V., ephemeral. And sweet, nonetheless.
  5:41am Violet in CA:

Kinda love Gastr del Sol though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45am Guido from Cologne:

unfortunately no show in Cologne
Avatar 5:48am Jeff Conklin:

Get in the car, Guido!
Avatar 5:57am Sem Chumbo:

Thx, Jeff. See you next time.
