"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.)

I’m going to record a black metal version of it

Oh! Kalahari Surfers. // Totally different if from the same planet, this Allman's tune always reminds me of a bright morning. Thanks for the variety John; off to job...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39am TomDash:

Hey John - really digging this first set! Recently discovered this band - Kalahari Surfers! NOT Allman Brothers...ha!
  9:42am Tom from Maplewood:

Allman Bothers on WFMU. KILL ME PLEASE.

@John Allen-did you know The Blues Travelers have NEVER been played on WFMU per the band browser?
  9:50am brick layer:

shoooo this one!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54am steveo:

neil: proof that they are worse than the allman brothers
Avatar 9:55am John Allen:

sure Neil. That tension has been building here for years. I think Conklin one day may inadvertently breach the arrangement.
  9:55am convoy_pt2:

This Forsyth song rips!!
Avatar 9:55am John Allen:

yo CV2!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56am Booz:

Thank you JA for playing this Forsyth now, when it is most needed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58am Booz:

I saw Chris Forsyth a few days after the 2016 election. He played solo, his soundtrack to Cocksucker Blues, with the film showing (mostly) silently. That, too, was timely.
  10:01am Tom from Maplewood:

@JohnAllen 99% of day laborers are Latino/a. They are very appreciative of the work they get. Day or night. But doubtful they know who or what an Allman Bros. is. ;)
  10:02am JakeGould:

@TomfromMaplewood: Why do these “day laborers” care about what is playing on WFMU?
  10:05am Mandrax:

Thanks steveo!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09am Krys O.:

Kenny G used to play the Allman Brothers on his show and not in an ironic fashion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09am sphere:

yo steveo :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10am Booz:

Yet those who labor, or feed, by night are prone to turn on FMU (or an Allman).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11am sphere:

the Allman Brothers are ok but i just can't stand Duane Allman's slide. he never could move below the 237th fret.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11am Booz:

Kenny does nothing ironically.
  10:19am yippie:

thats a lot of frets sphere
  10:21am yippie:

I know a woman who talked a lot, so much that the Allman brothers wrote a song with no words and named it after , her name was Jessica

this maxxxbass is great

nothing ironic about the allman bros

daniel knox has such good consonant enunciation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39am S_Rah:

Good morning. The name of this show always reminds me of one I used to hear on the way to work called JM in the AM. I think it was Jewish music. I loved it.
  10:39am JakeGould:

Yeah, but I still don’t understand the day laborers part of things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39am S_Rah:

oh lol this is good too. Thanks John Allen
  10:43am JakeGould:

@S_Rah: “JA in the AM” stands for “Judicial Anger in the American Media.”
Avatar 10:53am Wild Neil||Peace All:

I think The Knack were terribly underrated (My Sharona).....although they DID have a hit. Also The Vapors (I Think I'm Turning Japanese).
Avatar 10:54am Wild Neil||Peace All:

@John A. -I can kinda see why so many dislike the Blues Travelers. Still, if WFMU can play The Knack...why not BT?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59am sphere:

If the DJs don't want to play BT, I'm totally down with that. But I won't lose sleep if someone pops a track in at some point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01am zopa:

The hook brings you back. On that you can rely.

@Zopa-I dated John Popper's sister a couple times, she was a nice girl. I almost did a light show for them, but I was disorganized so I did not.

Liking this rattle muchly JA.
  11:35am JakeGould:

@WildNeil: Did you date anyone from the Spin Doctors? Or maybe Joan Osborne? You know that whole 1990s crunchy granola jam-blue crew? How about the String Cheese Incident?
Avatar 11:36am Rev. Turnip Druid:

of this audio i approve
  11:38am JakeGould:

100cc? Wowza!
Avatar 11:39am Wild Neil||Peace All:

@Jake Gould-nope. I dated a girl I worked with (big mistake!) and a friend of a friend's friend and an artist I met at Organism artists' rave at the Dutch Mustard Factory in Williamsburg in 1994. Also a couple girls from Cooper Union from when I went there in the early 90's. However, I did MEET the Spin Doctors a couple of times since they were the BT's room mates. That's all I remember. Maybe there were others. Not sure. It was AWHILE AGO. Heh.
Avatar 11:39am John Allen:

now we know why WN has been soliciting a Blues Traveller push on the station, he's trying to get back with a woman of his future past

When I was young I misheard the female voice saying ‘be poised and quiet’ , not ‘big boys don’t cry’. I miss my 1970’s pre- Internet, pre -cell phone mind.

On the corner of Bergen Street and 4th Avenue (a bit down the block on Bergen from ESPO’s Art World) the cement in the sidewalk is defaced with multiple “Blues Traveller” bits of writing.
