Greetings from atop Mt Shasta, California!

Greetings from aboard Jefferson Starship
  12:05am Eiderdown:

Morning, family! This intro tune has got me floating...real nice
  12:06am J:

At the summit, yes, but in the 40s and unpredictable otherwise. Forest service found a skunk up there yesterday. Strangest place...

I tuned in just in time to hear Creamo Coyle misunderstand what the deal is with a band some good pals are in...oh well. ha ha, great beginning of your show Jeff!

Wanna do some hiking in California soon, anyone got experience/tips?
Avatar 12:11am Adamsworth:

I think an underrated aspect of Ryley's music is the different tones and styles he is able to sing in...
  12:11am J:

Thank Yod for the FMU app. Keeping me company tonight big time. Thanks Jeff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15am sberger:

Morning Jeff et al...Jeff my wife is an experienced long distance hiker here in NorCal. Feel free to get ahold of me offline with specifics of what you're looking for and we can try to give you some info. Love Ryley's new lp, btw.
  12:15am J:

I recommend Nor Cal. Shasta Trinity Forest, specifically. But everywhere up here is amazing. This place is just exceptionally magical
  12:17am Clint in Reno:

Lassen Volcanic Nat’l Park. Underrated.
  12:19am J:

Yeah def Lassen too. So much around here.
  12:21am Eiderdown:

Haven’t done much hiking but the redwoods are amazing to camp in. Jedediah State Park and Elk Prairie are beautiful.
Avatar 12:22am Jeff Conklin:

@sberger: Has she done the PCT?

Havent been to Norcal in 15 years. Did some camping in Big Sur.
  12:23am J:

*a live skunk, mind you. At 14k feet, where birds don't even go. Just chillin w The Magic Presence.

@J: HA!
  12:24am phat:

man, I needed this show
Avatar 12:26am Jeff Conklin:

Gotta get Datashock to the states. Hook it up, Eiderdown...
  12:28am Eiderdown:

I’m mining bitcoin as we speak to pay to fly all 10 of the members over
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28am sberger:

She did a 100 mile section of the PCT, and also the 220 mile John Muir trail.
Avatar 12:28am Jeff Conklin:

@sberger: WOW. That's awesome. I've watched a lot of YouTube docs about those two trails. Looks unreal..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31am sberger:

She loved it, but it was grueling. Lots of planning involved.
  12:40am sfolk16:

chiming in from Victoria, BC.........happy to be able to listen to the 'Avant Ghetto' live this time...its been awhile!
  12:44am Jeff Conklin:

Glad to have you, sfolk
  12:45am Eiderdown:

  12:50am Eiderdown:

This Elkhorn sounded good in my kitchen earlier today but sounds even better on the radio at night. Thanks Jeff
  12:59am Agent Peter:

Poetry night?
  1:00am MONEYBAG$:

that story checks out

  1:02am JB in Sf:

saw a lionfish at the aquarium today. I'll say hi for you next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09am Ike:

Great first set! Never been hiking in CA, hope to go someday. Would love to do the Canadian Rockies too. Really love Harriman State Park....
Avatar 1:11am Jeff Conklin:

@Ike: Did my first Harriman hike last week. Nice loop hitting West Mountain. Beautiful stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13am brycepunk1:

Beautiful show tonight, as always. Wish I could stay awake for the whole thing. Thank you for sharing this beautiful music with us.
Avatar 1:15am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, bryce. The archive will be there for you when you awaken...
Avatar 1:17am Jeff Conklin:

Anyone near Western Mass take note:

Matt Valentine/J Mascis/John Moloney playing a Neil covers set this coming Saturday at the Root Cellar in Greenfield....
  1:19am MONEYBAG$:

I might have to make that journey
Avatar 1:20am Adamsworth:

WHOA. I hope it gets taped.
  1:20am J:

Anyone else remember Mascis' Zep tribute, Lard Zeppelin? He was Bonham and crushed it
Avatar 1:20am Jeff Conklin:

There's a 65 percent chance im going. 95 percent chance its getting taped....
Avatar 1:22am Adamsworth:

I had some friends who had a band called BONZO back in the day that was all drummers doing Zep covers. I never heard or saw them though... I think Ben Jones from Paper Rad was the main dude, and Nate Nelson from Mouthus was in it at some point too... he told me about it.
  1:23am MONEYBAG$:

I saw J play Cortez the Killer with the cast of Portlandia...this looks better
Avatar 1:24am Adamsworth:

I remember back when I'd read a lot of music magazines, J was mad about the constant Neil comparisons and said he wasn't really into him, ha ha.
Avatar 1:24am Jeff Conklin:

More news: Part 2 of my appearance on Brokedown Podcast drops this week. I play/talk 80s Dead ;)
  1:25am J:

I went to MassArt with Ben and Nate aka BONZO haha
Avatar 1:26am Adamsworth:

@J, Nice! I worked as a cook with Nate for a couple years in Baltimore. Great dude. I haven't talked to him in forever, and he's not on social media still, I don't think.
  1:27am J:

Used to hear them practicing sometimes. Ben was a great drummer. Nate is and was one of the best I've met. Don't remember them doing much outside of school though. Hazy days, almost 20 years ago sheesh
  1:28am MONEYBAG$:

Can't wait to hear the Day Job from Veneta
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29am Ike:

Oh and I would never bust on you for your German pronunciation! I *would*, however, bust on you for playing these dopey stoned ding-dongs! ;)
Avatar 1:29am Jeff Conklin:

@Moneybags: LOL. It's mentioned....
  1:29am J:

@Adamsworth nice. Yeah I need to call Nate. Was supposed to do a tape with him for his Afternoon Penis project. Sorta lost touch when he went back to Baltimore. Small world..
Avatar 1:31am Adamsworth:

Oh yeah, he played an Afternoon Penis show at the restaurant we worked at, but for the poster it had to be called Afternoon Pen 15, ha ha
  1:32am J:

*I think Ben got weird and Hollywood or something. I haven't talked to that guy in years.
  1:35am J:

RE: Dead. Gotta say, as much as I don't like Mayer, I'm getting sorta tempted to try for a miracle for the Dodgers Stadium show. The Bowl was fun last year, despite having bad versions of Jerry tunes stuck in my head for months...
Avatar 1:37am Jeff Conklin:

@J: I'm going to a show or two. Thankfully I don't remember any of the bad stuff afterwards...
Avatar 1:37am Adamsworth:

yeah, he was like creative director for like the Fox channel (not News though) animation department or something like 5 years ago or maybe even longer...
  1:44am J:

@Jeff Nice. Very tempting. I actually sorta enjoy Mayer's "pro chops" playing in a strange way now, but his voice kills me. But yeah, I have a bad tendency to get these ear worms with shit like that. Drives me crazy.
  1:46am J:

@Adamsworth I think Ben has like 6 cancelled TV shows under his belt at this point. His work has gotten so bad too. He should've just stuck to the art world. Total milquetoast now. And he can't keep a show past one season to save his life. Had a buddy that worked with him at Cartoon Network and said his ego was crazy out of control. Hearsay, but I believe it, judging from my last experience with him.
  1:47am J:

Anyway, whatever. Sorry for the tangent hahahaha
  1:51am Mike tp:

like what I'm hearing right now...
Avatar 2:03am Adamsworth:

Oooh, I didn't know about the new Joan Shelley, I gotta grip that...
Avatar 2:06am Adamsworth:

Damn, Michael Chapman...I hope I get to see him play live one day...
  2:10am mawuet:

Many things to comment on here: Quite the Wharf Rat...never heard Jerry hold one note for so long! Also, every tune on that Shelley is gold. And is it so that the Chapman has not been reissued? Did not know of this one.
Avatar 2:12am Jeff Conklin:

I don't believe the Chapman has been reissued: www.discogs.com...
  2:20am Mark R.:

Nice "Rhapsody in Blue" there, Rick...
  2:21am mawuet:

Yeah, saw that entry but was hoping it appeared in some other form. Seems odd considering how much of the rest of his catalog has been through multiple lives. Anyway, thanks for playing it!
  2:27am Eiderdown:

I’m fading in and out to Jon Collin. What a way to fall asleep. Goodnight?
  2:30am mawuet:

This Collin piece is definitely hitting a sweet spot between sleep and waking—morning where I'm at and it's working beautifully.
  2:54am katharsis:

Hey thanks for the show. It lightened the eve for me.
Avatar 2:56am Jeff Conklin:

Very happy to help, katharsis! Good night/morning, everyone. Thanks for spending some time with me....
