Close Up The Honky Tonks? Slam dunk the basketball courts!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06am pacific standard simon:

I went to the Avalon after it was converted into a movie theater. Sad, as some asshole would say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10am pacific standard simon:

There's almost nothing better than the romantic Miles, late at night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14am pacific standard simon:

Ahmad Jamal (whom Miles admired) works, too.
Avatar 3:17am markr:

Welcome, Simon!
  3:18am Vincent Nifigance:

Announcer: "Ladies and gentlemen -- Zach Galifianakis! ..."

"Excuse me -- I've been in canada, opening up for Miles Davis -- [ correcting himself ] Kilometers Davis."
Avatar 3:20am markr:

Hip on so many levels. I understand Thomas Jefferson wanted to put us on the metric system but the squares wouldn't stand for it.
Avatar 3:22am markr:

I liked how John sounded like he was halfway across the room when he came in for his solo...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27am pacific standard simon:

If I were a bell I'd go ding dong ding dong ding. My favorite Miles period.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35am pacific standard simon:

Wow, has it really been that long? I could tell you pretty accurately what I was probably doing on this day in '91.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38am pacific standard simon:

Did he say 'filling up my car' or 'feeling up my cock'? Inquiring minds need to know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40am pacific standard simon:

Yeah, that's it!!!!
Avatar 3:40am markr:

For FCC purposes, I'm CERTAIN he said, "filling up my car." The other thing doesn't make any sense if you think about it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41am pacific standard simon:

Make David sound like one of the Shangri-Las!!!
Avatar 3:41am markr:

Yeah, I'd like to hear those Shangri-Las sing these lyrics!
Avatar 3:43am markr:

David sounds like he's having a helluva good time singing these songs, doesn't he?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46am pacific standard simon:

I've never been a big fan of the various demo releases because the original albums sound so good. Although they could probably use a few extra RPMs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48am pacific standard simon:

I bet Unknown Mortal Orchestra is what Marc Bolan would sound like if he hadn't been killed.
Avatar 3:49am markr:

I hope you were listening to the Unknown Mortal Orchestra with the headphones on, really loud, because it sounded fantastic. And you might want to leave 'em on for this one, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52am pacific standard simon:

Ryuichi Sakamoto's home is for sale! Only $3M:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55am pacific standard simon:

I like it, but I don't see books. Can't live without books.
Avatar 3:55am markr:

That's really not that much considering its location. (If several of us pitched in, I mean). Wonder why he's selling it. It's beautiful. Very tranquil.
Avatar 3:56am markr:

We're keeping your books in the garage, Simon. They'll be fine. We'll get some shelves from Costco or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04am pacific standard simon:

And if you want to hear a professional doing a professional job, you're NEVER going to hear The Dolls.
Avatar 4:07am markr:

To be honest, I don't think I EVER heard the Dolls on the radio. If it weren't for Creem magazine, I never would have heard of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09am pacific standard simon:

I still treasure my memory of meeting Eric and Amy at a gig in SF a number of years ago. You're never going to meet a nicer fellow than Eric. Go to the record fair, folks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12am pacific standard simon:

My first exposure to the Dolls was probably one of those late night rock concert TV shows, about '73 - '74. Although Creem is certainly a possibility.
Avatar 4:13am markr:

A chance to hobnob with me and many of my fellow DJs, folks. Sheila B. is doing a live broadcast Friday afternoon, Mike Shelley, Rex and Todd will be broadcasting live Saturday, and many of us will be working the record and merch tables. And did I mention there's beer?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16am pacific standard simon:

Hmm, is there a Motel 6 around there somewhere? Is it too late for a cross-country ticket? Can I get my partner to sub for me at work?
Avatar 4:22am markr:

There are many itchy no-tell motels within a couple subway stops. I'd go Greyhound. You can sleep on the way, listen to the WFMU mobile app, pack a couple old Creem magazines, a couple sandwiches, some raisins, some nuts, beverages of your choice (this bag is getting heavy!), change of underwear, wear the same shirt every day, that's what we all do, and we live here. As for work, death in the family, I'll let you know what's happening when I get there, etc. etc. You know the drill. Come on. The first Record Fair I worked at, I saw my old Music Director from WCBN in Ann Arbor, he told me he comes every year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23am pacific standard simon:

I wonder if Wet Tuna understands that there are still a lot of Hot Tuna fans around, and they might be confused and annoyed by their name.
Avatar 4:23am markr:

Jeff Conklin has practically been single-handedly championing these guys, and he's right. I think they must be trying to annoy Hot Tuna fans, that can't be an accident. I like their groovy underwater sound, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28am pacific standard simon:

Sounds like The Mermen, which is a good thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33am pacific standard simon:

Hai, dozo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34am pacific standard simon:

I wish someone WOULD lay a little Benny Goodman on me. Actually, Uncle Michael sometimes does.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35am Craig in MoTown:

Good morning. Great music to wake up to... Missed hearing the Dolls segment- remember seeing them at the Felt Forum opening for Mott The Hoople (Todd Rundgren MC'ed the show).
Mark are you keeping the same slot with the new schedule?
I'm volunteering at the merc table this Saturday! First RF for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39am pacific standard simon:

Yo @ Craig in MoTown! Good morning!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44am Craig in MoTown:

Hey Simon, are we the only two awake?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44am pacific standard simon:

Read a book about classical music in the 20th century recently. It didn't work out so well for Prokofiev, thanks to the USSR, though you might not know that from being indoctrinated with Peter And The Wolf in grade school.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47am pacific standard simon:

And markr, of course.
  4:47am Mark R:

I played ya some Miles Davis, so quit yer bellyachin'! Craig, I'll be there from 3:30-7:00 Saturday at the $1 table, come by and say hello. New schedule is still a ways off, we haven't really even started talking about it. Fingers crossed I'll even be on it! I say this every year, but I don't envy Ken's job--so many great people and not enough slots, no matter what you do, someone great is going to be left off the schedule, and somebody's listeners are going to be disappointed. But it's good to have new people, too, and our listeners always seem to adjust.
  4:48am Mark R:

Those goddamn Russians, Simon. And just when I thought we were done worryin' about 'em...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03am Sebastian:

that's multidimensional - John Coltrane is also playing on the radio in the novel I'm reading right now!
  5:04am Mark R:

I love those coincidences (miracles?), Sebastian! Maybe YOU'RE ACTUALLY IN THE NOVEL!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06am Sebastian:

I hope not, it's pulp, and bad things are on the horizon - he's playing I Want To Talk About You in the book, so I should be safe...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07am pacific standard simon:

That was a good one from Prokofiev. I've said it before, and I'll say it again -- I think you'd do well in an earlier time slot, Mark. Not before 6PM.
  5:10am Mark R:

Well, Simon, we'll see. I could incrementally creep back to midnight, for starters. The way it works is you request your top 5 or 6 slots, then you indicate slots you CAN'T do, and then Ken has to figure it out. I have a day job, so I couldn't do before 6 pm, anyway (although I did a noon-3 fill-in over the Christmas break and that was fun--don't think I rocked any Prokofiev, though.)
  5:11am Mark R:

Even on his "tamer" cuts, Trane always manages to cut loose with some wild shit, doesn't he?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11am pacific standard simon:

Don't you wish someone had wanted to do Coltrane's life story on film when Denzel Washington was still young enough to do it? I know I'd pay to see it.
  5:12am Mark R:

I think he could still do it. That's a great idea, actually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17am pacific standard simon:

I think midnight east coast would be perfect for you. In Nick Name's slot, if that happens to turn up vacant. No slur on Nick, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19am pacific standard simon:

Stand Up is one of my favorite albums of all time. I kept it when I gave away 2/3 of my albums to KUSF.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20am pacific standard simon:

Oh wait, I meant This Was.
  5:23am Peter from Dover NJ:

King Crimson on WFMU. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23am pacific standard simon:

And here's another in my wheelhouse.
Avatar 5:33am Sem:

Good morning, Mark, Cicularly-persuaded.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33am pacific standard simon:

I will SO be there next week, because I love those guys.
  5:42am Mark R:

For a guy who really doesn't like country music, I shore seem to be playing a lot of country music this morning.
  5:42am Mark R:

My mother's rolling over in her grave.
  5:43am Mark R:

She wasn't that crazy about Billie Holiday, either. Well, I can't be haunted by my dead mother like Norman Bates.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44am pacific standard simon:

What the hell was wrong with Gram Parsons anyway? I work all day at my job and sing all day, and hardly take drugs at all. ;-)
  5:46am Mark R:

He was a poor little rich boy. His parents got divorced, then his step-father kind of ignored him and threw money at him. And then he became friends with Keith Richards. The rest is history.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47am pacific standard simon:

My ex HATED Billie, but what you gonna do? Some people just don't know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48am Vincent Nifigance:

Parsons was the subject of an interesting variation on the resuscitation technique, I believe...
Avatar 5:49am Davee:

It was a dream
  5:54am exile-on-hicks-st:

Gram Parsons was... Tropicana money? And I think Denzel did a jazz player in Mo’ Better Blues - probably the closest we’ll get to seeing him portray Coltrane.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54am pacific standard simon:

Then again, The Complete Hot Five and Hot Seven Recordings was one of the records that my ex owned when I met her.
Avatar 5:55am Sem:

That's great, about Sarah and the Disarmers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58am pacific standard simon:

That live Ry Cooder album is a pretty good Gram Parsons album.
  6:00am Mark R:

Thanks everyone, so much fun being with you tonight! Don't forget the Record Fair this weekend! See ya next week with an interview with Colin Moulding and Terry Chambers!
  6:00am LCBD:

Good Monday morning Clay and fellow glisteners!

  6:00am Pedro in Arlington:
