"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.)

Best Rolnick story: that time Neil and I convinced Superjoint Ritual to cover "WakeUp" at a show in New Orleans. They only got about half way through it before giving up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21am The Oscar:

Oh hell yeah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22am mb:

Morning all. DJ JA in the AM, how do?

@Diezel Tea: Congrats and RIP
  9:27am Listener Robert:

I'd love to hear even attempts to cover "Wakeup" live. Kudos to Superjoint for trying. A few months ago, didn't JA try MIXING the Dead to recreate the effect, approximately?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28am steveo:

good morning. i m wearing my JA shirt becuz it iz fryday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28am karlward:

Second best Rolnick story: that time WFMU got Neil Sedaka to drop leaflets of the "WakeUp" lyrics over Albuquerque from a hot air balloon. I'm not sure why they got Sedaka, maybe JA can fill us in on the reasoning there. Anyway the wind wasn't what was forecast, and let's just say we lost Sedaka for a few days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29am mb:

Unearth Noise! Hell yeah!
Avatar 9:29am Chris from DC:

Ack, I have missed Unearth Noise.

Was just listening to this Holtcamp record a little while ago. Great.

back in the flat ... to go and get the wee 7 year old from Catholic School Madrid ... the house seems happy with the music so I leave it on...

Thanks JA and ALL
Avatar 9:57am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Woke up 430 am to take a walk in the snow. I felt endorphins surge. 1.8 miles. Will work my way up to 2.5, then 3 then 4 miles. I love walking. Foodman is a bit abstract but akin to Remain In Light by Talking Heads passages...I like later Buttonhole Surfers but cannot stand noisy early stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57am zpulpa:

ja amin into a sunflower butter belly full work morning... today i decide to work sloooowwwwwwllllyyyyyyyyy and maybe not very much. ill be tuned in. from the basement... suns out. this is a nice wake up calling, paired with W and B of course

wind boogie too short
Avatar 10:07am ben abs:

Picked this List record up the other day, is fantastic
Avatar 10:10am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Was blown away by this G List last week, John. Great discovery. Have you noticed the similarity to some of Robert Wyatt's work ("End of an Ear", even some of the later albums, and that Centipede project)?
Avatar 10:11am the Canterbury wood-elf:

OMG, this AC is one of my best friends' favourite jam EVER.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12am steveo:

never realized alice used the marley riff in here -- nice catch
Avatar 10:13am John Allen:

Canterbury, yeah I hear that. There's a deliberate/thoughtful lushness / layering on the list as w/ Centipede
Avatar 10:15am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Alice Coltrane is pretty darn mystical sounding.
Avatar 10:17am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Alice C, Terry Riley and Sun Ra are the triple deities of my musical universe.
Avatar 10:20am D. Lightfoot:

Burl Ives on acid
  10:20am kudubundu:

Especially Terry Riley for me! Saw him play " Rainbow..." in the late 80's. Phenomenal.
Avatar 10:22am James Douglas:

um, what are we doing here?

eric idle?
Avatar 10:30am Roberto:

That did sound very much like Mr. Idle.
  10:31am Garden Variety Lurker:

Loving this. Ben Paterson must have recorded some Monty Python off the telly.
Avatar 10:32am James Douglas:

Freeform Radio at its best - totally without form.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33am peapod ross:

I wish I could have that much fun by myself.
  10:35am mrmikestandsir:

Dredging through unmarked cassettes is so totally relatable. Great radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36am Cmurtha:

This is the kind of thing that got me into WFMU a few years back. Imagine stumbling upon this without any clue what's going on.
  10:37am mrmikestandsir:

@Cmurtha -Exactly!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38am karlward:

This is easily the most elaborate cover ever done of "Brainwash" by Flipper.
Avatar 10:39am ben abs:

Avatar 10:40am D. Lightfoot:

This is strangely mesmerizing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43am steveo:

you gonna play the B side too?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51am tim from champaign:

Chopped but not screwed Elvis Costello?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52am steveo:

this is just regular pop music to me now
Avatar 10:53am John Allen:

i imagine it to be "neighbors" by The Stones
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56am tim from champaign:

Avatar 10:56am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Slow David Lynch soundtrack for a small town in Colorado maybe?
Avatar 10:58am D. Lightfoot:

This has a swordfishtrombone ambience to it
  10:59am Tom in St. Paul:

Love this - D. Lightfoot and Wild Neill said it just right.
Avatar 11:02am D. Lightfoot:

Is this a Peaches/Front 242 collaboration?
Avatar 11:04am D. Lightfoot:

Jack Bruce from Cream?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08am tim from champaign:

What D. Lightfoot just asked. Crazy. This is a billion times better than anything his guitar playing former band mate ever put out on solo records.
Avatar 11:08am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Hey, its the early 80's again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10am tim from champaign:

Here's a theory I came up with. I think the math works and maybe it will be added to the SAT. Jack White is to Eric Clapton as Dave Grohl is to Phil Collins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17am tim from champaign:

Is this the same New Barbarians as the Ronnie Wood band?
Avatar 11:19am John Allen:

tim, no
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am tim from champaign:

I see. Too good to be true.
Avatar 11:20am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Hey, my 15 year old son turned me onto Mr. Bungle California album. Wow!
The New Barbarians are pretty futuristic. It reminds me of the Zik Zak ad in Max Headroom for some reason. The TV show with a 70 year old punk guy with a mohawk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am The Oscar:

For a split second I thought this was going to be a live cover of "New Grub Street."
Avatar 11:28am John Allen:

nice Oscar, thanks to your comment NGS is being normalized as a HIT here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34am The Oscar:

I dream of a world where you can hear "New Grub Street" playing at Five Guys, between Mellencamp and Dire Straits.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34am tim from champaign:

I caught Mike Rep and Tommy Jay at Hozac's Blackout Fest in 2013. Really cool set.
Avatar 11:46am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Keiłbasa sandwich on white gluten free bread for lunch. Popcorn for dessert. We got some gray market keiłbasa from a guy who knows a guy. My neighbor didn't like it , "too smokey" she says. Philistine!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am karlward:

The B side of Clay's favorite Rolling Stones track!
Avatar 11:48am Chris from DC:

Don't really eat meat anymore, but occasionally I miss the kielbasa my grandmother would get from a guy in Pennsylvania who ground it himself. It was perfect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50am steveo:

is it any wonder I'm not a criminal / is it any wonder i'm not in jail?
Avatar 11:50am Wild Neil||Peace All:

This guy's recipe is from the mid 1800's, a Polish recipe. Wow. It is the BEST kiełbasa outside of Poland I have ever had. He refuses to sell to us directly, I have to go through this guy i know. I feel like it's 1985 and I'm trying to buy weed again.
Avatar 11:52am Chris from DC:

Ok, now I need pierogi. Sigh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am Jeezy:

Avatar 11:55am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Don't get me started about how expensive gluten free turkey stuffing is on Amazon! And WHO would make gluten free pierogi?
Avatar 11:56am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Wax Chattels is super heavey. Wow! It's like a whole new world opened up. Thanks JA in the AM!
Avatar 11:56am ben abs:

10/10 banging show today JA - so many great new discoveries. vielen dank
