Perfect drums on this Terry Reid

I cant speak for the terrestrial signal, but my stream seems okay. I never lift the lid Allison , my aim is true.

i'm actually hearing some static-y weak jazz. which is just as well i can't hear it very good.

Is 91.1 down? It went dead last night, but was back on this morning.

Back to Matt Wilson for a sec Irwin. You should get him in there. As you say, he's very entertaining.

Hello Irwin! Hi gang!

forget if it was jones or xray who mused about leaving his estate to" fmu, your station for factory noises"
Listener Robert:

I'm glad X-Ray made so many LOL. I really liked him but he almost never made me laugh -- just smile. A lot. Even made me think. Same effect on the late Listener Steve. Neither of us cared much for Jonesy's music selections, we just tuned in to their mic break...and I tended to tune out when X wasn't in.

Nuts. Had to miss Gorka. Heard him in town here at the old Freight & Salvage many years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm

Fredericks not necessarily, but i've heard Gorka many times on fmu
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm

(i'm blanking out on what shows though. sorry!)
Wilson in SO:

Peace, X-Ray
L W Rhino:

Irwin: Touching words about X-Ray. On Monday I went to Rutt's Hut to have some "rippers" and fries with gravy in honor of Ken. Rutt's Hut had black memorial bows on the entrance doors. I put a "ripper" out on the outside wall where a gull swooped down and gobbled it up. I'm convinced this was X-Ray have one last "ripper" for the road.

Yeah, me too Rob. Never understood it, but I could always listen to X-Ray. He could read a store list & I'd be captivated. I'll miss him. The world needs more fantastic freaks.

Irene Trudel and Irwin Chusid are the major WFMU proponents of Gorka.

Shoot, missed the X-Ray tribute, too. Sad news. Shoot, I still miss William Berger.

Second time I've heard a track from Another World on FMU tht I thought was okay. When I first bought that album, I thought the first few tracks (after the cover of Come Softly Darling, that is) were so terrible that I sold it to St Marks Sounds without even listening to the entire album. Looks like I may have been hasty.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm

right. chords.
- did Entwistle switch from git?
Avatar 5:33pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@coel: Don't think so. Electric Gittar remember was pretty new-fangled - & Electric Bass even more so. Macca & Ox helped pioneer it...I suggest you can hear a switch in the sound of Rawk from StandUp to Electric Bass in the middle of say Eddie Cochran's stuff...

Picked up that Fat Matress album for four or five bucks at a record store parking lot sale a few months ago.

heh. i was just saying last night that chickens chicken, and snakes snake; and they're morally perfect as long as they're not interfered with by humans. (then they're perverted by sickness)

Played it once and moved on, frankly, not because it wasn't good, but because I have a surplus of yet unheard stuff.
