Thanks for choosing the show over the phish show, folks.

Gotta get to The Ghetto!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm chresti:

What phish show?
Avatar 10:18pm Franco Twinkie:

We were gonna have grilled salmon, but then I decided to bake chicken.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm ParUbi of Pittsburgh:

Still haven't made it all the way through one Phish song. Wonder what's waiting for me on the other side...
Avatar 10:19pm Yennifer:

Oh this is amazing, never heard of this guy before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm fleep:

@chresti so will the next one, the spacing is preventing mudslides. so far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm mariano:

The title means "Firefly at Sunset". Couldn't resist Google translating it.
  10:23pm RCU-Keith:

Evening! Yeah I loved that last track. What a cool combination of sounds. Definitely want to look more into Kosaka.

@It works for me because I'm not scheduled to work at the courts those days, it's uncanny'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm chresti:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm mariano:

I heard here, I think it was, that Amon Düül was the first band to use an umlaut in its name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm fleep:

Think that should be 'Thirst'
  10:27pm RCU-Keith:

Also, I’ve been playing Stone Harbour to death recently, and for a second, I thought this AD track was them. I never thought of comparing them before, but now I want to play these records back to back.

No, fleep

Hey there DJ JC and all the folk rockers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm chresti:

Nice snowy theme
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm fleep:

Oh. Okay. Thurst is defined as the ruins of the fallen roof in a coal mine, so I'm lost.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm chresti:

Does that title mean something?
Avatar 10:30pm Jeff Conklin:

Well, fleep, you can trust me to be 100 percent accurate in song titles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm fleep:

Henceforth, I will never doubt.

You know everyone is going to want to get their hands on a copy of that Wet Tuna tape.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm chresti:

My brain is placing a comma after the word thurst.
Avatar 10:36pm Franco Twinkie:

I saw a German pressing of The Beatles I Want to hold Your Gland. Was that a typo or just a sly reference to their early days as the house band in the whore house?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm ParUbi of Pittsburgh:

But my open mouth is my thurst sun
  10:39pm Mitch:

Listening from Los Angeles
Avatar 10:42pm Jeff Conklin:

Is it snowing in LA?
Avatar 10:43pm Jeff Conklin:

I don't know, Franco, and I dare not ever ask a Beatles LP collector anything...
Avatar 10:43pm Franco Twinkie:

The city, no. The county. yes.
  10:46pm Jon:

No snow in Michigan, oddly enough.
  10:52pm Mitch:

No snow today. Though some of the upper elevations got some.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm chresti:

Mt. Baldy has a nice blanket of snow, bright white, hasn't been that covered in a long time.
  10:56pm nick zero:

,,good stuff
  10:57pm ignatatus666:

Aside from the vocals on the Greatful dead this set is so damn enjoyable
  10:58pm nick zero:

the snow has some very toxic chemicals in it ,,,, so be ware
Avatar 11:00pm Franco Twinkie:

Cold Rain and Snow - perfect for staying in the house and baking a pie.

Bedtime for me, leaving the conversation pit, thanks Jeff! Goodnight everyone

@Ignatus: The vocals were just fine

Found a long clip of that Wet Tuna Magick City gig 11/8/19, for after this show. www.youtube.com...
  11:03pm phat:

I should change my name to Jorma.
  11:04pm Dean:

I live three blocks from where Hot Tuna recorded their first LP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm mariano:

Listening from New Orleans. Where it was sunny and in the mid-high 70s today. Of course, 10 people were shot in the Quarter on Saturday night, so, life's little tradeoffs.
Avatar 11:05pm Jeff Conklin:

That Poughkeepsie show is acoustic. Man I'd love to go...
  11:05pm stinky:

Killer show Jeff. That Walk On ruled. Listening in Brooklyn via the app.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm ParUbi of Pittsburgh:

@mariano-- and the news was pretty quiet about that. Too used to it, I suppose.
  11:06pm Dan B Moon:

Listening with the kids at bedtime on a rainy night the power threatening to go out.

Welcome, new commenters!
  11:09pm Bob o:

Hi Jeff! Happy Sunday! Listening en route home from work in Jersey City. You’re making this Jormaniac very happy! Remember, if you don’t know Jorma, you don’t know Jack!
  11:11pm Dean:

I'm gonna buck the trend, but I think the second album by the New Commenters surpassed their first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm mariano:

@ParUbi: Well, it's been all over the local/state news, but have only seen mention of it in the Guardian otherwise. Not that I was specifically looking for that story though. But 10 in one incident is unusual even for here.
  11:12pm Aimee:

Gene Clark and now Michael Chapman?? Love it, Jeff.
  11:13pm ignatatus666:

I’m not a fan of them
I started enjoying their jams listening to your program. Especially after hearing Garcia Peoples live on your show.
Avatar 11:14pm Franco Twinkie:

Is that The New Commenters The Purple Prose? I like their song about burning Christmas trees.
  11:14pm nick zero:

thanks Jeff i been a listener since 04.,been slackin off kinda but this is some good stuff!
  11:18pm Mitch:

Chapman into Martyn

You're thinking of Edward & the Bulwer-Lyttons, Franco.

I’m glad that you made it to the station tonight,!Jeff
Avatar 11:20pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, I am getting as mixed up as a bag of salted worms.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm mariano:

I've never heard of Keith Christmas. This is really cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm mariano:

I mentioned this last show, but since it's totally the vibe here, I found a 2017 documentary on Fairport Convention that I can't vouch for yet, but looks interesting: www.youtube.com...
  11:25pm Jeff Conklin:

Ah cool thanks!
Avatar 11:26pm zogboy:

Listening in from Humboldt. Thanks for braving the elements to bring us the tunes.
Avatar 11:27pm Jeff Conklin:

Quite welcome, send salt and plow vibes...
Avatar 11:28pm Franco Twinkie:

The documentary on John Martyn is pretty good. What a talented pain in the ass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm WillCrete:

@Mariano - agreed. Mr Keith Christmas is new to me too. Digging the swing in his playing, and his ringing percussiveness. Thanks for the music this evening Jeff. Snow is falling here in Illinois too.
  11:30pm highway:

thanks for the john martyn jeff...it's not just about the song...it's how you transition it...and your very good...thanks...

Avatar 11:31pm slugluv1313:

such perfect tunes/vibes tonight, Jeff -- i am also glad you made it to the station!
i hope the drive back is easier -- or even better, you are able to stay some place local until the weather/roads are improved
@ Franco Twinkie -- not baking a pie but finally making food! freekah and red lentils, warms up the place too
  11:31pm Dean:

What do you all think of Tony McManus? I'm a fan.
Avatar 11:32pm slugluv1313:

this version of "You Ain't Goin Nowhere" is really really pretty
Avatar 11:33pm zogboy:

When I saw The Mekons in SF around 2004 they did a great version of "You Ain't Goin Nowhere".
Avatar 11:34pm Jeff Conklin:

Thanks for noticing the flow. Its important to me/this program...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm mariano:

@Dean: don't know him, sorry. I'm always astounded by how little I know, after years of obsessing over music and listening to FMU.
  11:45pm Dean:

Check him out, @mariano. Here's a good place to start (https://www.discogs.com/Tony-McManus-Ceol-More/master/1343812), but even now I see he has a new album of which I've been unaware.

I don't measure how much I know. It will always be a little.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm mariano:

Thanks Dean, I will do so!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm daves:

Brilliant show Jeff, just beautiful. Thanks man, and thanks for the 10/2/72 reminder

@fleep, that Wet Tuna clip is the rest of the 11/8/19 third set, after the Walk On. 1st set is here (while waiting for that amazing Baked Tapes recording): youtu.be...
Avatar 11:48pm Franco Twinkie:

Mariano, Isn't something? I have spent my life listening to music and I am still woefully deficient of any kind true knowledge of the subject. I will die ignorant and happy, singing a happy song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52pm mariano:

Yeah, same here - the bright side is that it's pretty much impossible to run out of music to discover. I don't think that in 20 some-odd years of listening to FMU that I've ever tuned into a show where I haven't discovered something I had no idea existed.
  11:52pm ryan:

Man that one got my head right for the week
Avatar 11:53pm slugluv1313:

@ mariano and @ Franco Twinkie -- same here!
been listening to WFMU since . . . 1977
and still, learning of music that is new (to me, at least) every day :)
Avatar 11:54pm Franco Twinkie:

This show was top shelf, Jeff. Sleep in the studio man, wait till it's light outside.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm mariano:

Damn, 1977? Jealous!

Thanks JC - amazing show, like @ryan said, it put my head right.
  11:56pm Dean:

Folks, who among us has heard all the works of Georg Philipp Telemann? One composer alone challenges our capacities to discover new musics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm fleep:

Thanks, Jeff.

Thanks, everybody. See you down the road..

I bet if somebody checks this same New Riders of the Purple Sage album came out about the same time that song did
  12:00am Tom in Los Angeles:

thanks for another amazing set Jeff!!.. truly the highlight of many a Sunday eve out here on the other coast!!:)

Avatar 12:04am slugluv1313:

thanks Jeff -- amazing show -- yes, helped put my head in a better space!
safe travels! or yeah, sleep in the studio!
  4:19pm Chris Wardell:

Fun fact: I enjoyed both this show and the Phish show at the same time!
