@Gaucho Spruce Tousler: What cannon?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09am Grinning Spine Tiler:

Sometimes i take a wrong toin at Ablakoiky when tunneling from one comments board to the next. The Wake and Bake Cannon is a more direct way to travel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10am Gaucho Spruce Tousler:

Well, sometimes The Pidge aims the Cannon in funny directions, so you might wind up in a Professor Dum Dum playlist from 2011.

At Stanford Literary Lab, they oppose the archive to the canon. At WFMU we can have both. And a bonus 'n' to boot

Hey Joe. It's Monday, no joke.

Live over DJs,
Acoustic over electric,
Eggs over easy.

Avatar 9:42am Joe McG:

@Brian: A code to live by. Right now for me, however it's DJ, electric, and a bit of egg with cheese in it courtesy George of the Wake program.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44am VincentNifigance:

@Joe McG what is @GeoFromJC's method of cheese transmission into egg? Is the egg scrambled?
Avatar 9:44am fred:

I still think it's weird there has never been a WFMU broadcast from Sonic Protest. I understand the financial side of it, but still, with the shared shoestring budget and love of weird music, it should have happened

Chris Forsyth so good!

True or false.

A little strong cheddar in scrambled. Yum.

Hahaha, Joe, great description of your set. @fred today was also the first I heard of Sonic Protest, and after looking at the line up I'm surprised it never came across my radar either. Perhaps they don't do much on the marketing end?
Avatar 9:50am fred:

@Gipsy Standard Time: have you ever traveled by Clay Cannon?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52am VincentNifigance:

@Gazpacho Soup Tester: That makes sense, you need something dryness to prevent unwanted curdling after intra-egg cheese conveyance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52am Goofy Spazzy Tuner:

@fred i was just discussing with VincentNifigance the various ways to travel between playlists. The Cannon is the quickest, unless Clay aims it toward the archives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54am Gizmo Spangled Trainee:

WHo here has seen "Skidoo" and the fabled Scrambled Eggs scene?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54am steveo:

I looked up the word tiple and here is what i found i hope you don't mind if if paste it because it is interesting.

A tiple (English pronunciation: /ˈtɪpəl/ or /ˈtɪpli/ ; Spanish pronunciation: /ˈtiple/ , literally treble or soprano) is a plucked-string chordophone of the guitar family. A tiple player is called a tiplista. The first mention of the tiple comes from musicologist Pablo Minguet e Irol in 1752. Although many variations of the instrument exist, the tiple is mostly associated with Colombia, and is considered the national instrument.
Avatar 9:54am fred:

@Diezel Tea: it's a shoestring operation, losing money each year, so I don't think there's a marketing end. Passionate people somehow making things happen
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55am Itzike!:

The lazy way to celebrate April 1 would be just to play some Weird Al. I'm sure Stashu would like that. Or some other Dr. Demento-type favorites perhaps? "Fish Heads"?

@VF: Yes, he scrambles! @Greg: Hi to you in AZ! @steveo: That's the instrument he's playing on that track, actually, although I said guitar. It's a t ype of Spanish guitar, really. @Ike: I could play "Heavy Metal" at 11. Good idea?

@Fred, She filled in for Todd on Saturday. All the great Saturday memories & vibes of her amazing show came right back!
Avatar 10:50am Davee:

Whoa - what a shift . . . .
  10:51am John in Bklyn:

@Joe: Is that considered a Mondegreen??
Wonder what Zaremba is up to these days. I used to like him on IRS Cutting Edge back in the day.
  10:52am John in Bklyn:

...and of course The Fleshtones had some good tunes.
  10:54am Elle Elle:

Yay, Jacques Dutronc.. married to another fave of mine, Francois Hardy! Nice one, Joe McG :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54am heyitschris:

This Dutronc song was aheads of its time
  Swag For Life Member 10:55am tadpoles:

This Jacques Dutronc single is a gem Joe.
Avatar 10:56am Joe McG:

Yeah, it's a total stomper. And it mentions Scooby-Doo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am Phillippe Bastille:

Good morning Joe #1 and everyone
Avatar 10:58am fred:

Thanks prudy, Vincent, Brian and Kevin. She opened my mind to country and much more, I'll always be grateful for that. I wish she'd tour this way

Hi @Phillippe

Vanilla Fudge fan here.hi Joe :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00am ChrisB.:

I never knew this Vanilla Fudge cover existed, but now that I do, "of course!"

what heyitschris said...
Avatar 11:01am Davee:

1960's much?
Avatar 11:01am Dominick:

Yeah, this is a new one one me. Right up their alley.
Avatar 11:01am White Michael:

Vanilla Fudge sings this? No way!
Avatar 11:02am fred:

How many songs mention Scooby-Doo? I guess I'll know next year
Avatar 11:02am Davee:

I thought it was Uriah Heep
  11:03am John in Bklyn:

But they didn't do the [B] section in 6/8. Why, Carmine, why?!
  11:05am KP in DC:

Recently saw Vanilla Fudge and Buck Dharma of BOC at a benefit down here in DC. It was at club and my table was from row. I used to have a right ear drum
  11:05am Will:

Now Joe, the McGasko Principle ("When Joe plays it, it always sounds good") only goes so far. I always thought this was the worst cover ever and Vanilla Fudge did a lot of them. Very Spinal Tap. Oh no...I am enjoying it!
  11:05am John in Bklyn:

V-Fudge could make Row, Row, Row Your Boat sound grandiose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06am Planet Tyler:

Wow that was terrible. But good to know about...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06am KevinfromBayRidge:

Davee, Uriah was very influenced by this slightly earlier group, which also a forerunner of BOC.
Avatar 11:06am northguineahills:

Never heard that Vanilla Fudge version....
  11:07am prudy:

How about some Lee Hazelwood?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Appropriately, that lovely Kevin Ayers bed music came in just as the train I'm on started to enter the outskirts of Canterbury. Thanks for another great show Joe!
  11:09am KP in DC:

I never heard the original until many years later.
Avatar 11:12am fred:

@ngh: keeping fingers crossed for tomorrow's interview, not that you need it. With the time difference, I'll probably be at a Shit and Shine show when it happens anyway, at the Mona Bismarck American Center
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13am RomanDogBird:

let's get a little mellow
  Swag For Life Member 11:14am tadpoles:

Just translated the Jacques Dutronc Joe...very appropriate:

love this set
Avatar 11:18am fred:

@ngh: good luck anyway (I'll be at work hunting for ISRC codes for electro tracks downloaded from youtube)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am Jeff Golick:

"Jahmillipede" sounds like the punchline to a very bad joke. Good tune, tho.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am Planet Tyler:

O I have a companion album for this - Mother Earth's Plantasia
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21am tom from Glasgow:

didn't Stevie Wonder do music for plants or something
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22am G:

The Secret Life of Plants, very late 70s

@tom: I think he took a secret journey with them!

Avatar 11:24am Davee:

I sense an animal theme here
Avatar 11:25am Jeff Moore:

I'm naturally anticipating a piece from David Garland's Verdancy coming up somewhere in this set...
Avatar 11:25am Davee:

I mean wildlife theme
Avatar 11:25am Brian in UK:

Bring on the millipede rock. Eighteen necked guitar. Take that Eagles man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am Ken From Hyde Park:

Heh...trying to imagine a millipede's keyboard.
Avatar 11:27am Jeff Moore:

... coming up ORGANICALLY. Shoot, missed opportunities.
Avatar 11:27am Brian in UK:

@Ken it is circular.
  11:28am Mr. Palchepo.:

Maybe next week a live set from a fern?
Avatar 11:28am Davee:

Does a millipede play piano with it's feet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29am tom from Glasgow:

a millipede's keyboard set-up would basically just look like Rick Wakeman's
Avatar 11:29am Joe McG:

@Mr. Palchepo: Ha ha ha! Or a rhododendren.
Avatar 11:30am Jeff Moore:

Tom is correct.

Don't adjust your radios, the distortion is in the track.
