this Jack Smith thing is *amazing*
Avatar 7:39pm Erella:

This is great. I love Jack Smith. Thank you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Gary:

Jack Smith was a superhero to me for many years ... I drew a 24 page comic about him ... maybe I'll see if I can find a page or two to post here ... Hi, Erella!
Avatar 7:40pm Erella:

I used to have a radio show at a college music station here in Toronto and had Jack Smith cohost a radio show with me in the early/mid 1980's.
Avatar 7:41pm Erella:

Wow Gary! I want to see that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Gary:

Are you freaking kidding me? You just won the Internet, Erella!
Avatar 7:41pm Erella:

Wish there was a recording of that.
Avatar 7:41pm hyde:

isn't 56 Ludlow on the LES where Lou Reed and John Cale lived?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Gary:

It could be, Hyde ... I was just going to ask you about a recording of that show, Erella
Avatar 7:42pm hyde:

@Erella wow!
  7:42pm Rich in Washington:

this is fantastic!
Avatar 7:42pm Erella:

Haha. I interviewed John Cage too.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm melinda:

I'm not getting this on the pop-up or in iTunes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Gary:

Rebooting, sorry everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Gary:

Hopefully be back in a minute ... let me know if I should start Jack from the beginning, or just go back a bit and pick up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm melinda:

So who was Jack Smith? This is new to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Gary:

It might be the station itself ... I tried to switch over on my phone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Not getting *any* FMU streams right now.
Avatar 7:47pm hyde:

just put john cage's 4' 33" on the playlist and we'll all pretend it's cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Gary:

Jack Smith was a filmmaker and performance artist, Melinda ... his most famous film was Flaming Creatures
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Gary:

Weird that the website is still up but none of the streams
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm melinda:

Cool. I'll look him up.
Avatar 7:49pm ndbob:

Heya Melinda!
Avatar 7:49pm hyde:

"Screaming out of over stim yoo lation"
Avatar 7:55pm Erella:

I remember Jack smith rhapsodizing about how great Scheherazade was. We played it and he went into a kind of trance. He claimed to love every version of Caravan too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Gary:

That's so great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Gary:

I wonder if he knew the Bollywood Caravan movie
Avatar 7:57pm hyde:

@Erella haha. that's great
Avatar 7:58pm Erella:

I wonder. I haven't thought about him in years.
Avatar 8:00pm ndbob:

excellent first hour Gary - catch the rest later
Avatar 8:02pm Erella:

Ha. I remember he told a great story Jack told, about seeing Andy Warhol at a party recently (andy was still alive at the time). They had some tension because Jack claimed Andy stole some of his work. According to Jack he grabbed the wig Andy was wearing off and put it on his own head. I hadn't heard that Andy wore wigs before. I remember saying "So Andy had several wigs, they all looked exactly the same as his real hair?" Silliness. Thank you for indulging this memory. Oh yes, I looked a bit like Liz taylor in those days and Jack Smith called me "Liz Taylor Erella"
Avatar 8:04pm hyde:

jeez, man. go ahead and tear down that smile island, rough luck. but let's build it back up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Gary:

Great story, Erella
Avatar 8:08pm Erella:

Thank you. Sorry for sounding incoherent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Gary:

You didn't sound incoherent at all! Here's a page from my comic: www.facebook.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Gary:

Actually it looks like you can click through it
Avatar 8:11pm Erella:

Hi Gary, I cannot see it because I am not your fb friend. It says Content Unavailable. I am Erella Beaubella Ganon on FB. Would you friend me for an hour and then you can delete it without hard feelings.

Avatar 8:21pm hyde:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Gary:

And I mentioned them not idlely ... I was trying to listen to the tracks on my speaker and I thought "Oh this is never going to work" ... until I put on the 'phones
  8:24pm Lauren:

Gary! Just tuned in and sure am glad I did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Gary:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm steve:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Gary:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Gary:

Soldering! Now there's a radio-worthy project. I can see that
  9:18pm rex:

This show is cool
Avatar 9:22pm hyde:

i ditched the headphones after awhile because i needed to move around, but that may have been a strategic mistake
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Gary:

Thanks, Rex! Yes, Hyde ... maybe its time for bluetooth headphones?
Avatar 9:26pm hyde:

i like wires
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Gary:

They're comforting. Always there. Not like air. Oh, wait -- no need for scare! Air is there. Always there.
Avatar 9:31pm hyde:

i admit, i am also firmly on the side of air
Avatar 9:32pm hyde:

i'm like that gut in Catch 22 who throws roses at any invading army
