Unstuck in time, The Avant Ghetto wanders through heavy folk, pastoral noise, spiritual rock, harsh jazz and other dimly lit corners of the universe.

Monday off means staying up for some fine tunes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18am Guido from Cologne:

Good morning Jeff!
Avatar 3:20am Bentangle:

Nice, osvi!
Avatar 3:20am Jeff Conklin:

Morning, all. Thanks for journeying with me this morning...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26am mariano:

Hey Jeff and everybody -- perfect jam for some late night graphic design work!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32am Smilty69:

Good morning Jeff & friends. The Dead in Hawaii must have been sick.
Avatar 3:35am Jeff Conklin:

Morning, Smilty69. The legend is the "promoter" of these shows was some rich kid who vowed to give away his fortune at the show...
  3:37am Nick:

I can't believe you're playing this! I met the son of one of the original members of the Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra last year, and he turned me onto them. So great.
Avatar 3:38am Jeff Conklin:

Nice, Nick! Did you ask if he had any copies of the records? Kind of hard to find
  3:39am Nick:

Ah, no, I didn't realize they were hard to find. If I see him again, I'll ask.
Avatar 3:40am Jeff Conklin:

Is he in LA? I'll be out there next week, I hit as many record shops as I can when I'm there and never see these records....
  3:42am Nick:

Y'know, I'm not sure if he's still in L.A. I actually had just emailed him recently and didn't hear back. I can email him again for you, if you'd like.
Avatar 3:47am Jeff Conklin:

Ah, no need to bother him. My time is tight out there anyway
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06am mariano:

He was quoting from the Baghavad Gita.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09am mariano:

*Bhagavad Gita, spelling! It's this passage: "If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst forth at once in the sky, that would be like the splendour of the Mighty One." Robert Oppenheimer used it upon witnessing the first A-bomb test: "“If the radiance of a thousand suns / were to burst into the sky / that would be like / the splendor of the Mighty One and I am become Death, the shatterer of worlds.”"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10am mariano:

At least I think that's what he was reading from, makes sense with the Krishna reference. Guido? My German is sehr schlimm...
Avatar 4:15am Bentangle:

The scary German guy was a most interesting soundtrack to our dinnertime.
  4:40am Nick:

Digging this Ronnie Boykins
Avatar 5:10am Tusalava:

I was drifting off and heard you talking about The Intergalactic Thing, particularly the cover. The smudged looking date was an issue with the printing process, and somewhat my fault; the contrast was higher on the original design, but came out dark on the matte surface.

Also, thank you!
Avatar 5:19am Tusalava:

It IS 1969.

I swear that looked fine on the proof.
Avatar 5:31am Jeff Conklin:

Oh man I wasn't dogging it! It looks kind of cool!
  5:37am Nick:

Great show tonight! Thanks Jeff...Goodnight.
  5:51am Ajay:

superb cuts today Jeff....more online record shopping for me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51am Guido from Cologne:

Loved everything I heard!
Thanks Jeff & CU!
Avatar 5:52am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, Nick, Guido, Ajay and all those who spend time with me on the air. It's a joy and treasure to play you all this music. I'll be back in two weeks
  2:51pm Jeff:

For west coast spiritual jazz you should look into Black Jazz records.
