Avatar 12:25am Jeff Conklin:

Hello, friends old and new.

@zenkoan: Did you know I had a radio show called "Bring Out Yr Dead" years ago??
  12:27am Yippie:

This song is for David peel
  12:27am zenkoan:

I didn't! Great minds think alike apparently
  12:29am Cat:

Wow I was calling it "bring out YOUR dead" for like the last five years I feel so meow
  12:29am sam:

Morning Jeff...Great opening, and perfect Dead/Dylan cut. Got my AG tshirt today too!
Avatar 12:31am Jeff Conklin:

@sam: Nice! I haven't even seen one in person yet, hope it fits...
Avatar 12:31am Jeff Conklin:

@Yippie: This song is for whoever you want it to be for...
  12:32am Cat:

Yo Sam but didn't shorty George really write this song and Dylan and the dead both covered him
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32am Erik in MIchigan:

Morning everyone! Nice to be listening live, for at least part of the show tonight.
  12:34am Cat:

Jeff Conklin , David peel was friends with the whole lower east side writing songs about marijuana and fuck Wall Street. Prove it all nite did a whole tribute show after his recent passing
Avatar 12:34am Jeff Conklin:

Yes, I know who David Peel is/was
  12:36am Cat:

Can you play a tribute song for him (we are in safe harbor if you want to have cursing)?
Avatar 12:37am Jeff Conklin:

No, I'm sorry I cannot do that.
  12:38am Tidy666:

Stubbs the cat...mayor of talkeetna Alaska dead at 20.let's replace more whole elected officials with felines!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38am Erik in MIchigan:

Wait, I thought this was the wfmu show where the DJ took requests all night?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38am Erik in MIchigan:

{I'll see myself out...)
  12:40am tuner fish:

There's more riffs than you can shake a stick at in this Windy Corner!
  12:40am Cat:

that's ok if no David peel tonite, but do you have a policy against David peel?
  12:40am Tidy666:

I meant fannyhole elected officials..darned spellcheck
  12:43am Cat:

That song about he was a friend of mine but now he's dead and gone made me think of David peel he once rolled a delicious meatball right in my mouth
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43am Erik in MIchigan:

woah, that's some Allman Brothers love with that guitar part!
Avatar 12:44am Jeff Conklin:

That's cool Cat. All due respect to the man and his work but that Marijuana song is the worst shit I've ever heard so I never explored further. Perhaps some day. I like meatballs though
  12:44am Cat:

That's one of the many perks of being a black yippie cat, it's like I'm a tiny black panther
  12:45am tuner fish:

No David Peel?! Wasn't there a whole Avant Ghetto devoted to GG Allin? ;-)
  12:46am Cat:

Ah yes if your main objection is to the over all shittieness of his guitar playing and enunciation, I wholeheartedly concur
  12:47am sam:

Yes Dylan didn't write it but I think of it as a Dylan/Byrds tune. And Jeff the shirt is big, but that's ok. Will wear it proudly.
  12:47am Tidy666:

Can't we all just get along and let our captain steer this excellent ghetto of a vessel?g.g. and David are cool...but they aren't here right now...
Avatar 12:47am ocean:

Hello and good evening from Corvallis Oregon. Great show Jeff!
  12:48am Cat:

Dylan was never afraid to rip off a lot of music which helped make him an all time great
  12:49am Tidy666:

I saw the biggest slug I've ever seen in Corvallis...like a foot long!neato!
  12:50am Cat:

U should try to appreciate from the east village radio hippie yippie music standpoint
  12:51am sam:

Everybody rips off everybody, and have been since the beginning of time.
Avatar 12:51am Jeff Conklin:

The east village is a shopping mall.
Avatar 12:51am Johnny Sal:

Hello all. Been wandering the archives for a while, but I'm back! Going to restore some sanity to this place.
  12:52am Tidy666:

I ripped off stuff from my railroad job just tonight!yeah everyone does rip off!
Avatar 12:53am Johnny Sal:

@Tidy: saw some really big slugs out in the forest when i was on vacation recently. but they were only like 3 or 4 inches. a foot?!
  12:54am Lynn's Brother:

Boku wa chotto is Japanese for I am a bit...
  12:54am tuner fish:

I ripped off that tag on my mattress. Don't tell the Gov'ment.
  12:55am Tidy666:

Pretty darn close...I think they were called banana slugs..yellow with red stripes...
  12:57am Tidy666:

Damn you...Donald j.will form a committee to inspect all our mattresses..guess I gotta get rid of my grow operation now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59am Erik in MIchigan:

  1:00am zenkoan:

Wow, that sounds awesome, Jeff. Please do play or post something from that prior show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05am Erik in MIchigan:

That Rick Deitrick is really killer
  1:06am MONEYBAG$:

lots of great stuff coming out of Boston...The Cars, SS Decontrol...
  1:07am Cat:

But the east village was home to a cultural revolution yippie style and David peel was the last musician keeping that spirit alive til 2017
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07am Erik in MIchigan:

Man, Rob Noyes & Alexander are playing nearby next month...and I'm going to be out of town.
  1:07am Cat:

It's not 100% a shopping mall
Avatar 1:08am Jeff Conklin:

Are you listening to the show, Cat?
  1:09am Cat:

I saw medeski play with Russian band auktyon on bleecker street is that good enough music for you
  1:10am Cat:

I listen to the show a lot but I just had a shower
  1:11am Cat:

And a few spliffs
  1:12am Jeff Conklin:

It's ok, Cat. Thanks for listening. I'm not gonna argue about the shittiness of Manhattan here. It's exhausting.
Avatar 1:13am Johnny Sal:

I see discogs knows nothing about this Yoshihiro character either. This could BE David Peel for all we know
  1:16am Cat:

Yeah it made me sleepy too
  1:18am Cat:

I'm about to open my maw super wide for a nice cat yawn
  1:19am MONEYBAG$:

I feel like there was a time when you could buy a house from making ambient music, and I missed the boat
  1:27am zenkoan:

I bet Boards of Canada is still making bank ambiently
  1:35am MONEYBAG$:

like what do you do on an average day when you're in Boards of Canada, and haven't put out an album in years? Are they lounging on the couch in tracksuits?
  1:35am MONEYBAG$:

I realize they did not long ago but it had been awhile
  1:39am zenkoan:

They continue to compose for film and their back catalog is in demand in all kinds of media, so I guess they are lounging all they want to, in between cashing royalty checks.
Avatar 1:40am Johnny Sal:

BoC last record was in 2013. Not too long ago, really...
  1:44am zenkoan:

cool segue from Slepian---->Tangerine Dream
  1:46am rw:

Hello! Digging.
  1:51am Hippie Jesus:

Green Desert was my very first Tangerine purchase. The three other tracks are good, but way too short.
  1:55am Tidy666:

Sounds kinda like john carpenter film minimalism...super cool!signing off Mr Conklin.I have to pass as a respectable adult early in the a.m. taking children to summer camp...may the force be with you all!
  1:55am Clint:

Oddly enough there's also a discussion on the BoC subreddit speculating about their day jobs. The guy who suggested sheep farming got my vote.
Avatar 2:03am TonyR:

First time caller! (Not usually on 'FMU at this hour).

Lovely set. TY.
Avatar 2:06am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, Tony
  2:07am Fashion Tashjian:

Great set so far, as always, Jeff!
  2:10am J:

Late chiming in, but excellent show tonight Jeff. My favorite night of radio every week
Avatar 2:13am Jeff Conklin:

Aw thanks, Tash and J. Much appreciated
  2:26am Mark R.:

I love that version of "I Shall Be Released."
  2:35am J:

This Crow track is beautiful
