Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

great transition...to towers of London...nice...

Small but mean. They take it out of you, but they put it back in. ;-)

Cockney Rebel = odd Can vibes
Avatar 2:05pm Roberto:

I wanted to visit the Towers when I was in London last November but we didn't get around to it. We viewed them from London Bridge instead.
Avatar 2:05pm Roberto:

Of course, this song was running through my head the whole time.
  2:05pm Marie:

diggin the show here, UM (at work). Thank-ee kindly, sir.

You folks are the best.

@UM you are the best

I & UM are among the lucky few who have seen XTC perform that song.

HELL to tha YES

Phil Lynott, everyone’s favorite Afro-Irish bassist.

@pacific & @um where'd ya see xtc?

UM, love your time machine. Happy happy happy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Uncle Michael:

holland, we were both at the same XTC show in Lawrence,KS!
  2:13pm Funky16Corners:

Gotta bolt, Unk. Great show today!
  2:13pm Mark R:

So cool to hear "The Cowboy Song"! My band used to play this in high school. Such an unlikely song for an Irish band to play, I always thought. Also always wondered why Thin Lizzy is never mentioned when the topic of great two-guitar lineups comes up--I thought they were great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Uncle Michael:

See ya, Larry!

Mark!
  2:17pm Wilson in SO:

Shit, I think Uncle Michael can tell I went to Panama City Beach (and liked it)
  2:17pm Mark R:

Always liked this song musically, but I really thought the concept of shooting your girlfriend by the river was so horrible. What am I missing? (If I were a girl and my boyfriend was really into this song, I'd hightail it out of there, you betcha!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm fleep:

Agreed, there are far better places
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Uncle Michael:

Music is chock full of murder ballads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Uncle Michael:

Wilson!
  2:19pm Mark R:

I know, but the ones where the protagonist did it always freak me out a little. I don't know if I'm supposed to relate to killing people or what...(I guess I'm a little to squeamish for your sophisticated radio program.) I'm going to watch my Mr. Rogers Betamaxes now.
  2:20pm John from Florham park:

Love this remake of this Neil Young song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Uncle Michael:

Hug your knees to your chest and rock yourself slowly, Mark!
  2:20pm Mark R:

I thought this was Dolly Parton, I really did. Lying in a burned-out basement, man, that's down and out.
Avatar 2:21pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey!!!!!
  2:21pm Alex In Illinois:

Like that old folk murder ballad "By the Banks of the Ohio".
Is there any song in which something good happens by a river?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Uncle Michael:

Bob!
  2:21pm pacific standard simon:

I kinda like this version of Down By The River better, though I also don't get the lyrics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm CHUCK ROAST:

Hey,thanks,Unk
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Uncle Michael:

YW, Chuck!
  2:22pm dan:

As great as Neil Young is on record, I don’t recommend seeing him live. Worst concert I ever attended.
Avatar 2:22pm ken krimstein:

killing it...but don't love the strings on this...but does neil care what I think? nah...
  2:23pm Mark R:

Don't think so, Alex. BTW, hearing the real Neil Young after all these covers just further emphasizes the unique fabulousness of Mr. Young. Tributes are fine and dandy, but...
Avatar 2:23pm geezerette:

Young is a great writer and I have no idea what any of it means!
  2:24pm Mark R:

Bet he was still working with Jack Nietsche at this point, Ken. He was very big on those grandiose arrangements, a la "Broken Arrow"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm Uncle Michael:

on the day that she left, he died but it did not show
  2:26pm Alex in Illinois:

There is that Gospel song, "Down By The Riverside".
  2:27pm Mark R:

Uncle Michael, I definitely remember "The Big Ball" advertised on the inner sleeve of Reprise records in them days (early 70s).
  2:28pm pacific standard simon:

I love that live Neil Young Velvet Underground tribute disc. Some teenage girl sold it to me at a yard sale. :-D
  2:28pm Wilson in SO:

Oh hell yeah this is greasy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Uncle Michael:

This single version is VERY different than the version on Truth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Stanley:

Well said Wilson in SO.

re xtc - thx didn't realize they ever even toured the us!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Stanley:

Uncle!
  2:30pm Alex In Illinois:

There is "Sweet Thames Flow Softly" where they fall in love and ... oh ...in the end, she leaves him. Dang!
  2:30pm Mark R:

I've never heard this faster version of "Rock My Plimsoul" before!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Mark R: Tom Waits re: murder ballads: “These were the oral tabloids of the day….News just happens to be a meal best served hot.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm chresti:

Alex, I agree, not many good things happen near rivers, or in the woods..

This Grifs 45 is so gnarly
  2:32pm pacific standard simon:

@Holland oats - I still have my ticket stub!
  2:32pm Mark R:

Alls I'm saying is I'm agin killin' folks, Granny. (Unless, of course, they got it comin' to 'em.)
Avatar 2:33pm geezerette:

Gnarly, yes indeed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Mark R: well, of course!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

i've heard that some murder ballads were written by the condemned killer in order to pay for a proper burial
  2:34pm Mark R:

Really digging your mix today, Uncle Michael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks!
Avatar 2:35pm geezerette:

What Mark R. said!
Avatar 2:36pm holland oats:

@pacific ha cool
  2:36pm Mark R:

I like how the instrumental intro was like two minutes long--I was actually surprised when the guy started singing!
Avatar 2:41pm geezerette:

Just watched the animation. Ha ha, wow!
  2:43pm pacific standard simon:

Gotta say, I love the library music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Pedro in Arlington:

Dang. Killer Buddy rockabilly that stayed in the can until the 60s.

Yep, why, I have no idea.

Oh, drat. And the stream was playing so well today...
  2:58pm dan:

Such a contrast between Sandy Eand that thing on the stream
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Rich in Washington:

Just about 30 seconds or so - and a really peculiar left turn it was!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Uncle Michael:

Are you not hearing Fotheringay?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm chresti:

it's back
Avatar 3:00pm Listening Out There:

I'm not. I just tried Bryce's FMU program, and that streamy's just fine...
  3:00pm pacific standard simon:

Something about the guitar on this Chris Gifford track reminds me of that Sultans Of Swing dude. Can't think of his name, right now. Urgh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

we love you UM! thanks for the tunes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Rich in Washington:

Rattle rattle!

Loud & clear!
Avatar 3:00pm Listening Out There:

Of course, I'm on the other coast and streams are brought here by carrier pigeon...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm chresti:

I just restarted the player, can hear UM
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Rich in Washington:

It came back. Was only out for a couple of seconds.
Avatar 3:02pm geezerette:

Hey, Rich!
Avatar 3:02pm Listening Out There:

Now I hear HDT. Did what chresti said, closed the popup player, refreshed the page, reopened the popup. Better than doing real work. Thanks, UM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks, UM!
