"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.)

Good morning. I don't usually hear this part. Happy to be listening.
Avatar 9:08am themutante:

Love this trippy intro.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12am steveo:

is "All I have to Do is Dream" about masturbation?
  9:13am Scott in Tokyo:

I love this song
Avatar 9:15am Wild Neil||Peace All:

This M Kat Ensemble is pretty heavy jazz. Clickety click!
Avatar 9:16am John Allen:

steveo, i always appreciate your input, but what KIND of masturbation?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16am WFMU listener WADE:

Some days JA's opening track fills me with dread and anxiety. And then the rest of the show happens. I'm in a cold sweat, pacing back and forth by 11.
Avatar 9:17am Lixiviated Life:

wait... there's different kinds?
Avatar 9:17am Wild Neil||Peace All:

@JA-I can answer that. Solo! Am I right?
Avatar 9:19am Wild Neil||Peace All:

A lot of doom and anxiety in this song. Wow. All the animals are like whining and crying and scared now (don't ever play this for horses or in a zoo. Horses like country music but NOT classic rock, I heard there was a study. )
Avatar 9:19am John Allen:

WRONG! masterbation for ensemble
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20am steveo:

I can find some support for my thesis in the literature (where "the literature" = the internet). It's about a guy who "thinks" about his gal whenever he wants her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22am steveo:

(Or maybe the object of his affection is not a gal, I guess it's not mentioned, and it's not really relevant.)
Avatar 9:26am Lixiviated Life:

... different kinds...
who knew?
... could be I've been doing it wrong.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28am jj.:

wow, a dead cover i don't know. happy 4/20, JA!
  9:30am tom from Glasgow:

this whole set has been insane, in the good way
  9:32am Wilson:

Amen Dunes new album... best yet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33am adampsyche:

that damn intro gets me every time. such a good trippy start to friday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33am BronwynB:

good morning and happy 4/20 john and morning pals
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33am BronwynB:

sure is a nice warm day for it NOT
Avatar 9:36am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Snow flurries in Cambria, NY today. Predicted.
Avatar 9:39am northguineahills:

Only supposed to get up to 73F/23C today here in FL. Oh, the horror!
Avatar 9:39am Polyus:

Malletman cares not for sticks.
Avatar 9:39am northguineahills:

Never heard Mike Dilloway. I have tons of material from his brother.
Avatar 9:45am themutante:

Angelic piece of Rhodes piano.
Avatar 9:45am Wild Neil||Peace All:

@NGC-better get your light jacket ready. It's almost room temperature!
Avatar 10:03am robotrattle:

Amen Dunes... Jason "Malletman" Taylor......Whetzel - Transitions like this are clandestine, dangerous for radio waves. Happy i am tuned in.
Avatar 10:06am themutante:

What @robotrattle said.
Avatar 10:14am themutante:

This music is complementing my whisky selection nicely!
Avatar 10:15am themutante:

Dirty Leeds!
Avatar 10:16am themutante:

That's a soccer reference, nothing malicious. I promise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am steveo:

is all i have to do is dream about susie?
  10:20am ?:

this Daryl Hall record is the dang finest.

rats that was me, wasn't signed in.

Disco mutha-effer... turn up the power! #HallandOates
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22am George of Troy:

Indeed, Sacred Songs is a great record.
Avatar 10:22am themutante:

Yacht Rock is still one of the best things to ever grace the internet.
  10:22am eric from lake hiawatha:

Thanks for Mr. Hall
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26am Ken From Hyde Park:

Daryl Hall runs a music venue in Dutchess County, NY, these days. www.darylshouseclub.com
  10:30am blee:

Avatar 10:30am themutante:

This sounds like Hitchcock's The Birds.
Avatar 10:30am themutante:

The movie with no music in.
  10:31am Doobois:

Love Patton. This one is especially grand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37am melinda:

Pearls Before Swine always sounds good.
Avatar 10:37am themutante:

My brain feels like butter listening to this. So gud!
Avatar 10:38am Chris from DC:

Just in time for Pearls Before Swine
Avatar 10:48am Jeff Moore:

Is it terribly shallow of me that I find it pretty much impossible to enjoy a song in which someone sings "between you and I"?

I don't think so. It's like fingernails on the chalkboard of my soul.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50am Passaic River Blues:

Here comes the Avalanches break. I could probably listen to "Vintage Violence" and "Church of Anthrax" on endless repeat.
Avatar 10:52am Rich from Bay Ridge:

Was in a meeting and am devastated to learn that I missed that song from Hall and Fripp! Love those mid-song Frippertronics.
Avatar 10:53am John Allen:

jeff, sounds like intimacy problems in the 3rd person
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53am melinda:

@Jeff I understand.
Avatar 10:54am themutante:

They can't be called problems if you have nothing to do with them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57am melinda:

I often don't fully register lyrics so that one slid past me, but hearing it spoken in conversation does grate.
Avatar 10:58am themutante:

I make a point of not looking up the lyrics to songs I love.
Avatar 11:00am themutante:

I prefer a mumbled, incoherent mess of a message.
Avatar 11:01am themutante:

Robert Rental is from the town next to mine.
Avatar 11:03am themutante:

Love his early electronics with Thomas Leer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03am Thibault:

Hi John, great show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19am joe mulligan:

can never get enough of this hired hand OST!
Avatar 11:25am themutante:

Close your eyes, people. What a trip!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am MD:

Ahoy Hoy Freeform People!
Avatar 11:33am themutante:

This track reminds me of Beck's Lost Cause.
Avatar 11:34am Polyus:

Hey John, do you by chance have the new Sarah Davachi record? The mellow shift in direction made me remember it was out.
Avatar 11:40am themutante:

The sound of death, a pleasant death.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42am joe mulligan:

I am loving this new wave of electronic ambient women musicians. Sarah Davachi at the Issue Project Room in January was a great show
  11:47am own crabapplesatellite Johnson:

Lol @themutante "I prefer a mumbled, incoherent mess of a message." Lovin' your message sibling!!
  11:48am own crabapplesatellite Johnson:

Yacht rock is a great name
Avatar 11:49am themutante:

Damn, thank you @OCJ
Avatar 11:50am themutante:

I've found my audience of 1.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51am Ken From Hyde Park:

Lovely set of tunes this morning, JA. Nice lead-in to the Bryce sonics.
Avatar 11:51am themutante:

I celebrated that by throwing myself back in my chair away from the keyboard saying "I'm Sandra Bullock!"
Avatar 11:55am themutante:

Feel like Flaeetwood Mac's The Chain is going to drop.
Avatar 11:55am themutante:

Nice spelling asshole @themutante
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56am Doobois:

LOL, Mr. T. Mutante!
  11:57am own crabapplesatellite Johnson:

Speaking of Western MA, you familiar with Flaming Dragons of Middle Earth?! My friend says they're the greatest Western MA band of all time! Idk. Random comment.
Avatar 11:57am themutante:

Cheers, JA! It was a trip, fella.
