Listener comments!


Morning Jeff. Listening in to the show sitting outside my tent under the bright sun with a cup of tea in hand on a beautiful French campsite. Summer holidays + Conklin jams = time to relax

Good morning Jeff! Putting my kids to bed and tuning in. It's been too long...
Finally giving this WFMU app to use.

By the way Ajay, that sounds fantastic!

Morning, boys! Good to be back

I have to thank you for educating me about the Dead. I never liked them that much, but after hearing so many tracks on your show I'd never heard before I now "get" them. And I like them.

Jeff Conklin:

@hola: That's awesome to hear. I truly believe there is Dead music for every discerning music head. Sometimes all it takes is a shepherd ;)

Ha! Also, it's funny because I caught a few of your shows on East Village Radio and I don't recall you were really into the Dead then. If you feel like answering, do you consider yourself a Dead Head, or just someone who likes a lot of Grateful Dead music?

Woot! Hallooo lovely humans!

Jeff Conklin:

Hey, Fox.

@hola: I've been pretty obsessed with their music for about 20 years (never saw them). I play them more than I did in the EVR days because I now have an extra hour to stretch out. For about a year I did a Dead show on EVR called 'Bring out Yr Dead' where I would mix their jams with modern and more obscure old psych to bridge the (in my mind, silly) divide between those two camps.

Jeff Conklin:

And I don't consider myself a "deadhead", there's too much baggage with that term ;)

Gotcha! Yeah, I like how you use the Dead as a sort of bridge between old and new psych, folk, and improvised music.
Avatar 3:34am
Jeff Conklin:

@hola: Yeah, I mean, the Dead were all of those things!

I think Eiderdown had an aversion to them for a while that I've been slowly chipping away at the last couple years. Isn't that right, Adam?

Ha ha. Yes, it's a deep wound left by too many nights forced to listen to the Dead by high school buddies. But Jeffs turning me around. I still can't hang with later era stuff but Anthem Of The Sun is awesome as is Workingman and American Beauty

Oddly, I have a fondness for Terrapin Station although maybe that's not one that the Heads usually like? Jeff, youve definitely hipped me to many great live jams as well! Im still in the learning process :)

Everybody loving this Mighty Baby jam or what??

Yeah, love Mighty Baby! They used to be The Action, right? I've never heard this track.
Avatar 3:47am
Jeff Conklin:

Yes, they were. Also learned recently some of them backed up Richard Thompson early on in his solo career. Great interview with RT by my friend Keith here: bombmagazine.org...

Yeah, just checked on Wikipedia: "Mighty Baby were formed in 1968 from the ashes of The Action." I only have their 1st record.

I am definitely in the Mighty Baby zone...was wondering who the hell they were. Action related? Wow!

Cool RT interview...thanks.

That 'Rolled Gold' CD from The Action got so so so so so so so many spins in my car at the turn of the century.

Guido from Cologne:

Good morning Jeff!

Oh my God, The Action are one of my favorite bands ever. Perfect car driving music. ;-)
Avatar 3:53am
Jeff Conklin:

Hey, Guido, how's it going

This Action release, which came out in the 1980s, has their 1968 songs when they were actually Mighty Baby. Amazing songs. I'd forgotten about that until just now. https://www.discogs.com/The-Action-Action-Speak-Louder-Than/release/1248892

Every time I hear Ryley Walker's vocals, I think of David Crosby circa Byrds (also one of my favorite bands ever).

This Forest Management has dreamy, swirling textures...almost fell asleep.

@hola: amazing sounds from that project.

This Gangloff record seems tailor made for the Avant Ghetto

Jeff Conklin:

@Eiderdown: Thats for sure!
George from Gravesend:

No worries, The gangs all here. My body is recovering from this beautiful weekend. Have a great day.

Yeah, I listened to Daniel Bachman's River constantly last year...I think I might have heard him first on your show. He's in that Fahey zone but definitely something unique. Looking forward to his new release.

Guido from Cologne:

Jolly guy, Daniel Bachman.
Had a chat with hin in person some two years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11am

Checking in per your request, Jeff. I don't usually get to hear your show, but it's late morning where I am, and I am having a leisurely morning at (my temporary) home.
Avatar 5:15am
Jeff Conklin:

Aww, thanks for heeding the call Parq and George!
George from Gravesend:

Need Coffee!!! What was the name of that album you mentioned a month ago? As of July it was your favorite album of the year.
Avatar 5:19am
Jeff Conklin:

Ryley's new record probably.

here comes the Monday sun

Probably crashing out soon. A pleasure to get to tune in live, Jeff!
