"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

In the '80s I worked in a Rawk club; we got Lloyd's *live* demo cassette. Best demo tape ever.

Good morning, first time listening to this particular show. Just read the lead-in comment so I will probably not like it either, like all of my favorite shows on WFMU!
Avatar 9:45am TDK60:

Still have it, a bit muffled now.

hi there, itzall and welcome.

Hi Monica, thanks. Looking forward to a few hours of music I will never hear again but still enjoy.

Avatar 9:54am TDK60:

That new WFMU blues show is really good! Quite eclectic, which makes sense for this station.
Avatar 9:58am TDK60:

Aw J.A. you're pulling out some Kewl artistes! Jon Hassell is a fave; and he managed to get himself onto one great album: Remain In Light. J.H. was ahead of the curve and still sounds Fresh!
Avatar 9:58am John Allen:

woflbat, it's a T shirt, designed by Graham, who also designed that mug
Avatar 10:01am Monica:

tdk, feeling this jon hassell too... hi dave... see new swag here:
  10:05am hendrix wolfbat:

So can't get the mug then?
Avatar 10:07am John Allen:

mugs are gone/ years ago. i posted the mug to show what the t shirt design will look similar to.

Aw shucks... :-p

Dig his tune "Adios, Saturn" off "Earthquake Island" album: Clarice Taylor, vocal. 1978 but really from 2035.

Looks like Andrew Weatherall's show is only once a month? What kind of a rip-off is that? Pledge now for WFMU where all your favorite (scheduled) shows are ONCE A DANG WEEK!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43am karlward:

True story: I told Ba Da Bing records that the latest David Nance record they put out was so good that the only reasonable thing left for me to do was to crash a motorcycle into Nance's house. They said thanks, and also "please don't do that, we like David."

A tragedy to have to silence the lovely Yoko due to speaker-phone IT support. Oh well, archives!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am Mick:

Yoko+Kim+Thurston=SO good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07am karlward:

I think this qualifies as "that noise without a beat that sounds like someones being pinched." I can confirm that this show is exactly as advertised.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07am steveo:

ok so i met thurston moore i guess that puts me at 2 degrees from yoko then sweet

That might be nice, but would SMK try to manage me?

The only problem w/91.9 is that some pirates f**k with it hard... should be much better in Queens but those bastards at In Da Streets and Impacto Dos mess things up.
  11:40am andrew:

what track is this? chuck johnson..
Avatar 11:41am John Allen:

yep, it's chuck

Hi JA and Monica! Lovely set this morning...
Avatar 11:42am TDK60:

>broadcast report> North Manhattan: 91.1 FM clear'; 91.9 clear of intruders right now but too static-y.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44am ⓔⓘⓚ:

@TDK60, thanks. Have you had a chance to check 91.9 late at night or on weekends lately?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45am ⓔⓘⓚ:

Last time I was way up there, the Impacto Dos pirate reached all the way to the central Bronx from Queens, unfortunately. But it might not get to upper Manhattan, so that's good. (Weirdly it's also at 105.5. Why does this pirate need TWO frequencies? Isn't one illegal enough?)
Avatar 11:46am TDK60:

No, but will check if I'm back here at the ranch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am Greg from ZONE 5:

Maybe if you came down and pitched in and met everyone you might get a better understanding of what it takes to run (and to manage) the place.
Avatar 11:52am Monica:

hi sean g! Lix Life, east village...hi weirdwolf...
Avatar 11:53am TDK60:

Some pirates are kind of...insensitive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am dgg:

Because then it would just be "Impacto Uno"

thanks john & monica and all the volunteers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57am Mick:

Thanks for a great show John and Monica!
Avatar 11:57am TDK60:

Yes, gracias John & Monica.
