Hi George. Thanks.

Hi Dave! Yay! So nice to have WoE back, if only temporarily. :)

Hey Holly. Thanks, birthday girl.

World of Echo!!

What a nice holiday surprise! Welcome back Dave. We've missed you!
  10:12pm greyhoos:

Welcome back, Dave. A most unexpected treat as I'm laying here
I'm laying here immobilzed by a wtf leg injury.
Avatar 10:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

GreatSociety's version sways like a cute young figure - the Airplane's is all chemical nerve endings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm fleep:

Tempo of the original StL feels sluggish, the JA version had urgency. What Rabbit said.
Avatar 10:12pm Dave Mandl:

Hey there rw, greyhoos.
Avatar 10:13pm Dave Mandl:

@greyhoos: Oh no, sorry. I've got a minor leg injury myself. No idea what it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm melinda:

howdy Dave & everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Uncle Michael:

The Great Society just wasn't anything like the Airplane. This has always seemed an interesting curiosity that underscores that point.
Avatar 10:14pm Dave Mandl:

This Somebody to Love sounds better than I'd remembered it, but still doesn't touch JA's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Uncle Michael:

I love pre-'73 Steve Miller Band in a way Miles Davis could never appreciate.
Avatar 10:14pm Dave Mandl:

Hi melinda and UM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm Uncle Michael:

Hi Dave, nice to see you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm melinda:

I like hearing the early Steve Miller Band too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Uncle Michael:

I recently encountered a cover of SMB's "Going to the Country" from the same period. Not a lot of bands were covering them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm joeray:

I did not know you was filling in, Dave! So glad I tuned in tonight, (I almost didn't).Great to hear you back on the air!
Avatar 10:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Somebody' written I think by hubby DarbySlick of the Society - after a break-up & on acid...
Avatar 10:23pm HollyT:

YEAH. Lizzy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Scraps:

Three of Minimal Compact were from Israel, one of them was born in Turkey but his name is Hebrew, and the drummer was from Amsterdam
Avatar 10:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Darby was brother-in-law...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Scraps:

Lizzy yes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Uncle Michael:

Worth noting that pianist Ben Sidran made his bones in the early Steve Miller Band.
Avatar 10:24pm Dave Mandl:

@Scraps: Thanks. I knew they were mostly Israeli, but vaguely remembered that at least one member was from Europe.
  10:24pm steve from g-berg:

yeah man, sailor and children of the future! ...somebody buy me a cheeseburger.
Avatar 10:24pm Dave Mandl:

@RRN63: Was it written only by her hubby? I thought it was co-written, but this is a distant memory.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Scraps:

Ah, Sakharov was born in Turkey but moved to Israel at three
Avatar 10:26pm Dave Mandl:

You folks know everything, btw. I'm constantly impressed.
Avatar 10:26pm Dave Mandl:

Howdy, steve from g-berg. Where's g-berg?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm Scraps:

Not this time! I looked it up
Avatar 10:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Wiki says Darby - who was bro-inlaw, not hubby (oops) :
...Grace probably did more dumping than got dumped I'm guessing...
  10:27pm johnk77:

great set @davemandl
steve miller has lived on the
upper west side of manhattan
for the last 3 years
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm Scraps:

But I like looking up things
Avatar 10:29pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& Grace wrote 'White Rabbit'...
Avatar 10:29pm thebackdrifter:

Love Julia Holter!
Avatar 10:29pm Dave Mandl:

Hey there, johnk77. Thanks. He's friends with McCartney, no? But I think Paul lives on the East Side.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Scraps:

They wave at each other.
Avatar 10:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

SirMacca's collaborated w/ Miller...perhaps Paul misses having a Libra partner around (hah)...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Scraps:

This is nice
Avatar 10:31pm slugluv1313:

good evening, Dave & everyone!
wonderful surprise to hear you here tonight!
Avatar 10:31pm HollyT:

Best song: Abracadabra. Haha, just kidding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Scraps:

oh god
  10:32pm steve from g-berg:

guttenberg, nj. love your set!

(Response to Holly.)
Avatar 10:33pm Dave Mandl:

@steve: Ah, thanks. I wonder about these things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Scraps:

"reach out and grabya" ugh.
Avatar 10:33pm Dave Mandl:

Hey slugluv1313. How's things?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm melinda:

I forgot about Abracadabra. I admit to liking some of his other hits, though.
  10:34pm johnk77:

paul and steve did record together
several times
not sure if they are friends
i have not spent quality time
w/steve in about 40 years
but i did say hi to him a week ago
at my job in manhattan
Avatar 10:34pm Dave Mandl:

"Take the Money and Run" was a pretty low point IMO.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Rob W:

A note on the last set: Minimal Compact’s members were actually all Israeli, but based in Europe - first Amsterdam, then Brussels where they hooked up w/ Crammed Discs. Berry Sakharof from Minimal Compact has gone on to a very successful solo career back in Israel - some of his stuff is quite interesting, worth exploring. I particularly recommend his collaboration with Rea Moshiach, “Ibn Gabirol” (set to texts by the Sephardic poet of that name; tinyurl.com...). Recently the band has done a few reunion concerts / short tours including in 2016.
Avatar 10:37pm HollyT:

It occurs to me that there was a time from about 80 to 83 when a lot of 70s rockers were trying to put out quasi-new-wave records
Avatar 10:37pm Dave Mandl:

Thanks, Rob. Yeah, I discovered them through the Crammed network back in the '80s. A good friend of mine also used to know Malka Spiegel, who was (is?) married to Colin Newman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm coelacanth∅:

hello and Welcome back Dave
Avatar 10:38pm northguineahills:

This Andrew Pekler is killer, and getting good airplay on WFMU>
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Scraps:

i know Wikipedia isn't always to be trusted, but they say about Max Frankel, " Born in Amsterdam, he is the only non-Israeli member of the band."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Scraps:

Franken, not Frankel. Sorry
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Scraps:

Moving Gelatin Plates! Awesome!
Avatar 10:43pm Dave Mandl:

Hey coelacanth∅. Thanks. I love the new letter at the end of your handle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm Ike:

Hi Dave. Very nice to hear you again.
  10:44pm steve from g-berg:

love this!
Avatar 10:44pm Dave Mandl:

@Holly: Yeah, they also were pressured to cut off their long rock-star hair (Robert Plant, Freddy Mercury, etc.).
Avatar 10:44pm Dave Mandl:

Hey Ike. How's it going?
  10:44pm johnk77:

@hollyt here is a slightly disturbing
video from 1984
that proves your point
jeff porcaro did tell me
before he died that
playing and getting hi
w/macca was a gas and
a peak of jeff's career
  10:45pm Jeff Conklin:

Sounding great, Dabe. I love the cheesy Steve Miller stuff you're dissing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Scraps:

I so like this album. Very Canterbury, even though it's French
Avatar 10:46pm Dave Mandl:

@Jeff: Sorry! My bigger fear is that word will get back to him.
Avatar 10:47pm Dave Mandl:

@Scraps: True, very Canterbury.
Avatar 10:50pm HollyT:

I'm not kidding, Dave, MGP is referenced in my novel :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm Scraps:

Avatar 10:51pm Dave Mandl:

@Holly: Whoa.
Avatar 11:04pm slugluv1313:

oh WOW! Dave, where was this? (Ghédalia Tazartès' performance)
(and how did i not even know about this!)
Avatar 11:08pm Dave Mandl:

It was in a church in Brooklyn Heights. I guess not very widely publicized.
Avatar 11:12pm slugluv1313:

@ steve from g-berg -- i was wondering if that was Guttenberg (i am also in Hudson County)
@ Rob W. -- you truly ARE the expert!
@ Dave -- and i am terribly out of the loop!
  11:12pm JakeGould:

Nice to hear you on the air again, Dave.
Avatar 11:13pm Dave Mandl:

Hey Jake. Thanks.
Avatar 11:14pm Dave Mandl:

@slugluv1313: That's true about Rob.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm Ike:

@Jake, that's too similar to my comment, dammit! This means WAR! (tosses a sack of angry giant lobsters in the general direction of Bay Ridge)
  11:27pm JakeGould:

Eh. War. I was head-butted by a neighborhood bum last night do bring it!
  11:27pm JakeGould:

SO bring it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm Ike:

Head-butted?!?!? Holy cow. Clearly I'm going to need something tougher than giant lobsters if I want to take you on. Uh oh, I don't have anything tough enough in my magic sack of giant animals. [runs away]
Avatar 11:31pm Dave Mandl:

@Jake: Wow.
Avatar 11:32pm Dave Mandl:

I hope you're OK.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm coelacanth∅:

Jake that's HORRIBLE! you might have to buy anti-lice shampoo!
  11:37pm JakeGould:

Oh yeah. I'm fine. I'm walking home with two slices of pizza and the guy just was hunched and ranting to himself and rammed me. I didn't fall down. The pizza survived. Most importantly I got to shout, "Whoa! Whoa! What the fuck you asshole!" And get past him.
Avatar 11:38pm Dave Mandl:

  11:38pm fxo:

Dave, glad you're back. Happy hollandaize.
Avatar 11:39pm Dave Mandl:

This was in Brooklyn, right?
Avatar 11:39pm Dave Mandl:

Frank! Thank you! Same to you, pal.
  11:40pm JakeGould:

He's one of these aggressive homeless guy's who is ripped (seen him in the summer) and his deal is just aggressively getting in everyone's face.

He also gets beat up fairly regularly and says "It's fuck tough business!" all the time so I feel bad for him.
  11:40pm JakeGould:

Dave, yeah. Bay Ridge.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm coelacanth∅:

Jake, had you seen him before?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm coelacanth∅:

oh, there. never mind. so he wasn't just thinking he was funny.
  11:44pm JakeGould:

I grew up with weird homeless guys like that do it's not as upsetting as it sounds. But it's still unpleasant.
Avatar 11:46pm thebackdrifter:

This Scott Walker track sounds like a demented and elaborate "na na na na boo boo" haha.
  11:47pm Eric Hat:

I recognize that bird call!
Avatar 11:49pm Dave Mandl:

@Eric: You've got a good ear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm coelacanth∅:

Jake, there was a "homeless" guy in my town a few years ago who headbutted me once - then acted like he was just kidding around. (rather roughly, but...)
- it never occurred to me until now that maybe he really was trying to hurt me and only acted like he was kidding because i didn't fall down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hey, Dave. I've been a lurky-loo for too long tonight. Good to hear World of Echo once again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm coelacanth∅:

(homeless in "" because he was a "traveler", so it was his choice to be "homeless".)
  11:51pm Clay:

All these comments! Your Arbitron™ ratings must be through the roof! Sounding good!
  11:51pm Eric Hat:

Thanks Dave. I just can't name the species. I can say it can be found in the northeastern US.
  11:52pm Eric Hat:

Or at least, 'heard'...haha.
