Good morning Nate. I'm happy to see you're staying put in the new schedule

Happy Labor Day folks.

Roddy McDowell, so butch.

Not sure how much of this Suzanne Ciani track is pre-Terry Riley, and how much is post-Terry Riley.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:16am Nate K.:

@Pacific. It's 1975 if that helps at all. Probably post?

If you're interested in the assignment of call letters by the FCC, note that KBAI is a station in Bellingham, WA that broadcasts left-wing talk and minor league baseball.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:19am Nate K.:

"Keep an eye on those commie BAIs fellas."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:21am fred:

@pss: I'm actually interested. I thought W was required on the east coast and K on the west, but I wonder where the dividing line stands. And whether there is another first letter in the middle
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:21am pacific standard simon:

I saw that, Nate, but Riley's music did change a little in the mid-70s. Hence my confusion.
Avatar    Sun. 9/4/16 6:22am Sem Chumbo:

@fred: I think it is the Mississippi River.
Hiya, Nate, and Burners everywhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:23am fred:

clicky star for this Cate Le Bon track
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:24am pacific standard simon:

@fred - The dividing line is the Mississippi River, but there are exceptions on both sides. C is for Canada, and X is for Mexico.
Avatar    Sun. 9/4/16 6:28am Sem Chumbo:

An interesting radio call sign here in Canada predates Newfoundland's entry into the country (1949).
VOCM, St. John's , Newfoundland, standing for the "Voice of the Common Man."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:29am pacific standard simon:

3-letter call signs still exist, passed down from the old days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:36am fred:

Interesting stuff, but I still wonder why these call letters were mandated in the first place
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:40am pacific standard simon:

Take a look at this, Fred:

It's kinda weird that May 1st is "labor day" in some countries and not the US, even though the May 1st date comes from the US
Avatar    Sun. 9/4/16 6:44am duke:

Happy Sunday Nate and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:44am fred:

@pss: That makes sense. I guess we never had these in France because all radio stations were state-controlled until the early 80's
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:45am Nate K.:

I feel like May 1 is the Labor Day that makes people nervous; our late summer Labor Day is the get drunk-and-grill, keep-'em-in-line Labor Day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:45am Nate K.:

If that makes any sense...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:47am pacific standard simon:

May 1st is a pagan holiday, having nothing to do with labor or workers. Stolen, just like Christmas, by ideologues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:47am fred:

@Nate: It does (especially the keep-em-in-line part). Part of the weirdness is that very few people around here know about the haymarket connection
Avatar    Sun. 9/4/16 6:49am duke:

The Stones don't sound like they really like working people
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:50am fred:

@pss: I once had a calendar that featured holidays (primarily New Year) from many cultures. Basically every day had an excuse to get drunk
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:51am Nate K.:

@Duke, I find this to be maybe their most questionable song in terms of credibility. Worse than "Street Fighting Man"...but I love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:52am pacific standard simon:

Dance around the maypole. Hooray, hooray, it is the first of May -- outdoor fucking starts today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:55am fred:

@Nate: I feel like the Stones and cred only go together with a negative connective
Avatar    Sun. 9/4/16 6:56am duke:

I think the Stones are great but I don't believe them. If Otis Redding sings Pain in My Heart, I believe he knows exactly what he is sing about, If Mick sings it, I think he has studied it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 6:58am Nate K.:

@Duke, I'd say I'm more or less in agreement. I think if Mick were to sing a song about hedge fund investing, I'd believe it. I also think that when they cover songs by their idols, they really mean it, though.
Avatar    Sun. 9/4/16 7:00am duke:

Do you have any good hedge fund investing tunes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 7:03am pacific standard simon:

I think the Stones have a lot of credibility at their most misogynistic -- that's where they really are -- but I try not to think about it to much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 7:03am fred:

When the Stones rip off their idols, they mean it. When they feel someone ripped off one of their songs and they sue, boy do they mean it.
The Monty Python ad was hilarious, though

I really need to go to bed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/4/16 7:04am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Harry Shearer ('Le Show') did a really great Stones parody song - 'Refined Sugar' - about Rupert Murdoch marrying Jerry Hall...Muddy Waters: 'The Stones stole my music but gave me my name.'...Beatles were lower class looking to Achieve & be taken seriously - The Stones were Middle class Southerners looking to go boho. Missions accomplished all around I figure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/4/16 7:06am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...like Charlie Watts is into Civil War memorabilia - so always this thing w/ British Blues like it's a study or fashion - but if so they are dedicated!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/4/16 7:06am Dave in Vermont:

fuck yeah, Nate K.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/4/16 7:07am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

MayDay is under Taurus, & Labor Day under Virgo - both Earth Signs that correlate to Labor pretty well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/4/16 7:08am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Taurus is havin' thangs & eating, earning - Virgo is service & class & labor more exactly...
Avatar    Sun. 9/4/16 7:09am duke:

I recently watched a James Brown biography. There was a segment about the TAMI show. It was interesting to see the Stones follow JB on the closing segment. No one can follow Jame Brown. I give them credit for not just giving up,.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/4/16 7:10am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

James & Tina deffo opened people's eyes about Performance. Like when Hendrix arrived in England after apprenticing in the Chitlin Circuit, & all these guys that had learned off records were stunned by his moves...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 7:13am fred:

May 1st used to be the only day my workplace is closed (and even enforcing that led to a conflict). Now with terror alerts all the time you have to get approval to get in at night or on weekends. It sucks because I crashed there a few time after shows that ended late
Avatar    Sun. 9/4/16 7:17am duke:

I have Labor Day off, but thanks to e-mail, an online forum that I have to monitor, remote access etc. It's not really a holiday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/4/16 7:25am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Well - as long as the Murican hyper-working lifestyle brings us all this peaceful, rich, egalitarian lifestyle & Happiness in Society that make us feel so very successful & fulfilled both materially & spiritually - it's OK I guess...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 7:38am fred:

@RevRab: I work in a weird place, there are few morning people, and access to studios used to be a welcome perk. Contemporary music composers usually don't care about regular hours, and they kinda set the clock here. So I can show up at noon and nobody bats an eye
Avatar    Sun. 9/4/16 7:53am KP:

Happy Hurricane, Nate

Thank, KP. My umbrella will be put to the test in about an hour.

'Happy Hurricanes'. Hm...

I saw the Stones in a tremendous show at the Meadowlands during a raging tropical storm. When Mick sang, "I howled at the wind and rain" you believed him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 9/4/16 8:14am Nate K.:

@KP that would have been something to see, I'm sure.
