I like their stuff a lot

Hey, hey, it's Larry G once again. Greets, Mr. DJ, and hello, testifiers...no taking the 5th, OK?

Oh yeah, big record for me right after high school
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm Parq:

Hi, Matt. My day's just getting off the ground; I'm kind of a night owl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm Parq:

I remember April as a particularly nice time for New Orleans. Hope its a great day there today.

Hey rw!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Funky16Corners:

Electronic beats for your feets (and your heads)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Matt from New Orleans:

It’s beautiful here today. I’m heading out to ride my bike so I’ll be listening but not on the board. Have a great day everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Franco Twinkie:

I know you've moved on to the tuna melts, but we're still on the buttered toast.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Funky16Corners:

Have a good ride, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - It's breakfast-ish time for you guys. My coffee is already doing its job.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Funky16Corners:

I was out this morning and it was nice, if a bit chilly. The pollen is already starting, too (ugh).
  12:19pm Boomer:

It's Wednesday my dudes ahhhhh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Boomer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Franco Twinkie:

That's what I mean, Larry. Your're jammin' hard, and we're still in stumbling around mode.
  12:20pm Boomer:

Aloha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - This'll get your heart started!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Cal Zone!:

I did radio promo for UDS years ago!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Funky16Corners:

No shit? I love these guys.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Parq:

Larry, the pollen around my neighborhood park this morning was visible. Even my dog sneezed.
Avatar 12:26pm Erica:

Sorry I'm late Larry. I was trying to listen to another radio show but I don't think it's on today. I'll have to make up the first 20 minutes of this show later. Also, sorry for not tuning in to your Saturday fill-in show as I had to go out that day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Franco Twinkie:

Pollen! don't even talk about pollen. Since we had such a wet winter here, the plants and trees are all in overdrive. I'm miserable. My lungs are itchy and I have a nasty cough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Erica! No worries! Glad you're here now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm Funky16Corners:

@Parq & Franco - I had my first yearly experience of washing the pollen off the windshield yesterday. Just had to open a fresh box of tissues. Not looking forward to peak pollen AT ALL.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Parq:

I'm lucky in that I don't have acute hay fever, but when it's as bad as it is now -- I mean clouds of plant residue blowing around in the air -- well, good luck to anybody out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Franco Twinkie:

Where do live, Parq?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Parq:

Lower midtown Manhattan, Flatiron/Gramercy country.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Franco Twinkie:

Is that a Johnny Marr loop?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm Funky16Corners:

It is indeed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Funky16Corners:

Here in Central-bordering on South Jersey we are not only surrounded by trees, but also about 20 miles away from a raging forest fire that had everything smelling like smoke over the weekend with ash falling from the sky like snow flurries
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm Franco Twinkie:

Funny, I've been in NYC in springtime and never seen the pollen clouds. I thought all that cement was a buffer. I guess I'm wrong.
Avatar 12:38pm Erica:

This song samples The Smiths I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Funky16Corners:

It does, Erica
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Parq:

Frankie, I was right alongside one of the neighborhood parks, which is full of flowering trees. Nuff said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Franco Twinkie:

Did I hear this right, or are my ears full of pollen: You're taking the night off, no Testify?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Funky16Corners:

No, I'll be here at 10.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Funky16Corners:

I have to clean the house and make dinner, but I'll be back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Franco Twinkie:

Good! What's on tap?
Avatar 12:47pm Erica:

Larry is on fire recently, 2 Testify fill-in shows as well as F16C on Mondays the main Testify show at 10 and the Iron Leg Show on Saturdays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - UK psyche, a bunch of Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd and some jazz to cool things down
Avatar 12:48pm Erica:

I'd tune in to his other shows but they come on at times where I'm either watching a show, going out or have to shower. :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - I am a veritable radio machine!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh yeah!
Avatar 12:50pm Erica:

I'll say you are Larry. Also, I like the loungey feel of this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, this is a favorite album of mine. Towa Tei was the DJ in Dee-Lite, and his use of samples and beats is really imaginative and stylish. Believe it or not there's an Ike and Tina Turner sample in this one. Good headphones music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Carmichael:

Heya Larry and fans. I'm testifying that it is Richard Thompson's birthday today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Carmichael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Funky16Corners:

Cut Chemist did this live with one turntable, a loop pedal and a mixer (and a pile of African records)!
Avatar 1:00pm Erica:

Hi Carmichael.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm Franco Twinkie:

Chupacabra- A brain sucking goat monster.
Avatar 1:07pm Erica:

Speaking of Deee-lite, I have their 3rd final album Dewdrops in the Garden which I never got to listen to yet. I've been putting if off for a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm david w:

Hello Larry and all! Aboard for the afternoon cruise!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm Funky16Corners:

Hi David!
Avatar 1:24pm Erica:

Ooh I remember this one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm joe:

Sorry I got hung up Duane just did a killer tribute to Walter Gibbons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - With the sample of Rickie Lee Jones that she was NOT happy about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Joe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm Andrew Waterloo:

probably the only thing keeping Rickie Lee Jones in the cultural consciousness
Avatar 1:27pm Erica:

That was Rickie Lee Jones?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Funky16Corners:

Yes it was!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Funky16Corners:

Hi Andrew!
Avatar 1:28pm Erica:

I knew she had a raspy singing voice but I didn't know her talking voice was so soothing in that interview of the clouds.
Avatar 1:29pm Erica:

Another fav of mine: Tour De France.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Funky16Corners:

I believe she sued The Orb at one point
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm Andrew Waterloo:

Was that from Reading Rainbow? The interviewer sounds like Javar Burton
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm Andrew Waterloo:

LeVar Burton..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm joe:

Well at least her label did en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Funky16Corners:

@Andrew - Wiki says that was indeed the source!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm joe:

@andrew waterloo yes it was
Avatar 1:34pm Erica:

Great. Now I can look up that interview (without the Orb) later. Thanks guys!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Funky16Corners:

Now I want to look it up! I never thought to see where it came from.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm joe:

5 years ago this past Monday I was at a Kraftwerk show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Funky16Corners:

How were they?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Andrew Waterloo:

according to Wiki, it was from an interview disc, that was not Burton. That would have been a pretty awesome episode of Reading Rainbow though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm joe:

I stand corrected it is not from REeading Rainbow "The samples are widely believed to have come from a conversation between Jones and LeVar Burton on the children's television programme Reading Rainbow,[3] but in fact originated from an interview disc that was issued with some promotional boxed copies of her album Flying Cowboys. The interview was not conducted by Burton."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm joe:

@Funky16Corners Really really Good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm Andrew Waterloo:

coincidentally I've been listening to some old Ninja Tune comps
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39pm Funky16Corners:

@Joe - Was the the series of shows where they were doing entire albums?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm joe:

@Funky16Corners It was the one right after that. The 3D tour. My guess done because how amazingly well the album shows you are speaking of was received.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Funky16Corners:

very cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54pm chresti:

I was on a ninja tune obsession, in the early two thousands
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Carmichael:

Rickie Lee was also sampled on a Boards of Canada tune, Fluffy Little Clouds or something like that. Wasn't happy about that, either ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm chresti:

From ninja, I went to warp and tigerbeat 6
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm chresti:

Thanks Larry, see you alls later!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Funky16Corners:

Later Chresti!
  2:01pm Kudubundu:

I actually thought this was Laetitia Sadier!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Funky16Corners:

Britta Phillips singing en Francaise!
Avatar 2:05pm Erica:

The same Britta Phillips who sang on Jem & the Holograms songs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Funky16Corners:

Yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Funky16Corners:

She was an actress before being in Luna
Avatar 2:12pm Erica:

You should be proud of your son Miles, Larry. He's your little helper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Funky16Corners:

He's a good egg, that Miles. Smart, a talented artist and an all around good person.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Carmichael:

I didn't realize Luna came out of Galaxie 500, Ultrababyfat and The Christine Keeler Affair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, great band
Avatar 2:17pm Erica:

Ooh. Some Pat Metheny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Funky16Corners:

I saw Metheny and his band a number of times around this album and the one before it. Really, really good band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Carmichael:

I saw him around the time he had a Brazilian guy singing harmonizing notes with the band. Pretty cool and different.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Funky16Corners:

Yes, Nana Vasconcelos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Funky16Corners:

The Pat Metheny Group played a concert at Montclair State College right after I started my freshman year, in this little theater. It was pretty incredible, right after this album came out.
Avatar 2:27pm Erica:

Didn't imagine you to be into Pat Metheny Larry, especially since their later stuff is more smooth jazz and less experimental jazz like the earlier stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Webhamster Henry:

HI Testifiers! As Falls.. is a classic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Funky16Corners:

I loved this era of the Metheny Group because even though it's presented as jazz it's really a lot further out than that, almost a jazz take on progressive rock. I even dig their more traditional sounding stuff, but this is a pretty unusual/remarkable piece of work, especially for the early 80s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Funky16Corners:

Hi Henry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Funky16Corners:

This may also be the longest track I have ever played on Testify!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hello again everyone. I eventually made my way down to crescent park right outside the French Quarter and am enjoying the sun, the view up and down the river and Larry’s tunes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm Funky16Corners:

That sounds excellent!
Avatar 2:38pm northguineahills:

Larry, djing on GTDS stream, half of the time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Funky16Corners:

Hey NGH! I'm living on the airwaves!
Avatar 2:41pm Erica:

Pilot of the airwaves he is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - I like that, 'Pilot of the Airwaves'!
Avatar 2:47pm northguineahills:

Haven't heard this Laswell remix in ages....
Avatar 2:48pm Erica:

It's a song by Charlie Dore Larry. Very good soft rock song from the late 70s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, I like this album a lot. He doesn't mess with things too much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - I'm not familiar with it. I'll look it up after the show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm david w:

Wonderful.
Avatar 2:49pm Erica:

If you're into Joni Mitchell, I recommend Charlie Dore. Very talented British singer/musician.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Funky16Corners:

I love Joni! I'll def check that out
Avatar 2:51pm Sem:

Head down in work and lovin' the show, Larry. Miles and Miles and Miles. Thanks, see you again another time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Sem!
