Listener comments!

  3:03am Ajay:

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
  3:08am Eiderdown:

Good morning Jeff! Putting my kids to bed and tuning in. It's been too long...
Finally giving this WFMU app to use.
  3:09am Eiderdown:

By the way Ajay, that sounds fantastic!
Avatar 3:09am Jeff Conklin:

Morning, boys! Good to be back
  3:13am hola:

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.
Avatar 3:18am 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 ;)
  3:19am hola:

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?
Avatar 3:20am Fox (Rā-chul):

Woot! Hallooo lovely humans!
Avatar 3:28am 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.
Avatar 3:29am Jeff Conklin:

And I don't consider myself a "deadhead", there's too much baggage with that term ;)
  3:32am hola:

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?
  3:43am Eiderdown:

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
  3:45am Eiderdown:

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 :)
Avatar 3:45am Jeff Conklin:

Everybody loving this Mighty Baby jam or what??
  3:46am hola:

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...
  3:48am hola:

Yeah, just checked on Wikipedia: "Mighty Baby were formed in 1968 from the ashes of The Action." I only have their 1st record.
  3:48am Eiderdown:

I am definitely in the Mighty Baby zone...was wondering who the hell they were. Action related? Wow!
  3:49am hola:

Cool RT interview...thanks.
Avatar 3:51am Jeff Conklin:

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.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52am Guido from Cologne:

Good morning Jeff!
  3:53am hola:

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
  3:58am hola:

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
  4:14am hola:

Every time I hear Ryley Walker's vocals, I think of David Crosby circa Byrds (also one of my favorite bands ever).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16am Guido from Cologne:

searching for summer.
yesterday was a day of summer.
this week?
cloudy and chilly prospcts.
  4:18am Eiderdown:

Ahhhh, Brother Ah!
  4:18am hola:

Ahhhhh! haha
  4:19am hola:

@guido your comment is a nice poem
Avatar 4:19am Howard F:

Hey Jeff, thanks for spinnin' the jams!
Avatar 4:21am Jeff Conklin:

Hey, Howard, thanks for listening!
  4:34am Eiderdown:

This Nevada Greene track is nice. New one for me...
Avatar 4:37am Jeff Conklin:

Straight out of Missouri!
  4:50am hola:

This Forest Management has dreamy, swirling textures...almost fell asleep.
Avatar 4:54am Jeff Conklin:

@hola: amazing sounds from that project.
  4:58am Eiderdown:

This Gangloff record seems tailor made for the Avant Ghetto
Avatar 5:09am Jeff Conklin:

@Eiderdown: Thats for sure!
  5:10am George from Gravesend:

No worries, The gangs all here. My body is recovering from this beautiful weekend. Have a great day.
  5:10am hola:

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.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11am Guido from Cologne:

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

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!
  5:18am 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.
  5:26am gracefulriver:

here comes the Monday sun
  5:30am Eiderdown:

Probably crashing out soon. A pleasure to get to tune in live, Jeff!
Avatar 5:31am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks for hanging, Adam. Have a great day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44am annie:

Avatar 5:45am Jeff Conklin:

Morning, Annie. Hope the tunes help?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47am annie:

oh, the rain is f9ne with me... it's been a gentle drizzle all night. but the tunes definitely are the icing on the cake
  5:49am hola:

Groovin' Tommy Flanders...dig this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54am annie:

thanks for playing JJwalker, he is very under-played. even his hometown ignores him
  5:56am hola:

Thanks Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58am Guido from Cologne:

Loved the show (as i always do)!
CU next week!
