Music for the revolution in my head: choogling punks; power pop, both skinny-tied and long-haired; soul shouters and girl groups; bubblegum and acid rock; global fuzz; weirdos and outsiders, and the Weirdos and the Outsiders; Archie Shepp and J. Geils. Plus, live bands.

Good morning Nate and all
Nate, are you going to play Porno For Pyros after The New Pornographers?
Avatar 6:28am Sem Chumbo:

Hiya, Nate, Good morning to you and Burners everywhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30am Nate K.:

@Fred, nope! The Sweet!
Avatar 7:01am Sem Chumbo:

Lovin' the spins.
  7:06am Hey Nate Big Zappa Fan Saw him and the Mothers ma:

Great show today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06am Nate K.:

Thanks @Sem. No filler this AM!
Avatar 7:27am fred:

Whenever I hear Neu!, I expect Ken's voice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28am ultradamno:

...and a nose flute.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29am Nate K.:

Ken loves this song...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30am Nate K.:

If the number of times he's played it is any indication...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49am listener james from westwood:

Bloody awesome set and glad to finally have a chance to favestar this FMU hit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50am listener james from westwood:

@fred, and b.c he plays it during pledge periods, I get itchy to grab my credit card!
Avatar 7:50am fred:

I remember Ani Kuni from my childhood
Avatar 7:52am fred:

Nice cover (Temptation)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00am ultradamno:

Big Lynch fan...love the new Twin Peaks so far (though it kind feels more like Mulholland Drive, which in fairness was originally conceived as a TP spinoff, than classic Peaks. which is no bad thing), in fact with that American Gods and Leftovers it's surreal sunday on TV.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09am Nate K.:

@Damno... I agree with the MD comparison, elements of Lost Highway, too, perhaps.
Avatar 8:13am fred:

Damn, looks like I should find a way to see this. I probably won't get around to it though: too much good radio going on, and it looks hard with my not being in the US
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13am ultradamno:

Yeah, I see that in that in the structure a lot.

Ha! I was playing In Color in the car last week...
  8:15am logan:

Carsick cars?
  8:17am logan:

Apologies, seems I restarted someone else's show, thought it was your Nate. Back to your program. More coffee obviously needed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18am ultradamno:

(carsick cars)...could result in a technicolor yawn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22am Nate K.:

@Logan, I did play Carsickness, though...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22am Mike Sin:

Just thinking out loud... To me, Cheap Trick's "In Color" was the LP that "made them," as it were... really separated them from many other FM-oriented straight-up rock bands at the time. I think the producer Tom Werman deserves a fair amount of credit, but it seems likr the band has gone out of its way to complain about the "polish." Japan would not have been primed for this band without it and "Budokan" would have never happened.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...okay - I get up - Thx James Arthur...
  8:33am Will:

Sets are quite artfully assembled today, Nate. Admiringly, Will J
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34am ultradamno:

In Color definitely made them, for sure, though the first album was really more separate from straight up FM rock of the day (which, I guess had them in a more niche category before In Color happened).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I always had this impression that CheapTrick never quite got Produced quite right - like I would put their vinyl on my cheap stereo & - something wouldn't hold my attention ('Arranged'? Mastered? I dunno)...hard to articulate - but I felt I *really should* by all rights be enjoying this band more often than I was. I'm just glad to hear them when I do now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41am ultradamno:

They were a better live band, that's for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42am Nate K.:

Che-Shizu and Cheap Trick in the same show? A bridge too far?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...remembering the actual limitations then, tho' tend to forget now...I have a memory of some Sabbath & other vinyl actually jumping the groove - pressed cheaply or too dynamically or whatever it was...so long ago!!...
Yeah actually - seeing CheapTrick on AustinCityLimits not too very long ago put an exclamation point over my head...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44am ultradamno:

@ Nate: It's the spell some benevolent witch cast over WFMU many moons ago that make such incongruous juxtapositions work.
Avatar 8:49am Sem Chumbo:

Thx, NK. So long for now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50am Nate K.:

Thanks, Sem. See you next.
  8:57am james f:

thanks again, nate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
