  10:05pm RCU-Keith:

That last track was really cool. Totally unfamiliar with it, but anything on Flying Fish was generally great.

Suddenly sounding very Jeff

Evening, all, lots of cool stuff for you tonight. Thanks for hanging.

Hi Jeff and everyone!
  10:09pm Will:

All the sudden we got ourselves a bluegrass man
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm fleep:

  10:10pm RCU-Keith:

Oh we had a pretty cool moment today. We made it out to Garcia Peoples’ gig at Asbury Park last night, and then this morning, my wife ran into a guy in our town that happened to be standing next to us during the entire set. Turns out to live in our our town and he went to check GP out after hearing them recently on WFMU. Small world!
Avatar 10:10pm Jeff Conklin:

The all bluegrass show gerts closer and closer
  10:11pm Aimee:

Looking forward to it, Jeff!
  10:12pm CC:

This kind of reminds me of when Dickie Betts and Jerry Garcia played together???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm ParUbi:

Hey Jeff and everyone
  10:15pm Steve:

Great stuff as usual, nice and mellow.
  10:16pm Will:

Good stuff, Keith. Saw someone post we all need to see them ASAP before small venues are no longer an option.
  10:17pm CC:

Boyer and Talton...two greats...together..!..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm mb:

WFMUers - We're everywhere. May be standing next to you at shows.
  10:17pm RCU-Keith:

Yeah, I saw that too, Will. You know? I think they raise a very good point!
  10:18pm Carmichael:

I know this acoustic guitar from somewhere ...
  10:21pm CC:

Rex and Neil...kind of do 'it' for me too!!!
  10:26pm CC:

nice guitar!!!
  10:29pm CC:

this really reminds me of the best part of the 70s!!!
  10:32pm CC:

got to bury all your money and never talk on the phone!!!...hehehe...
  10:33pm John from Florham park:

Fellow listeners in about 32 minutes there is going to be a liftoff to study the sun if anyone is interested
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm WR:

Thank you for the music Jeff. Time for me to disconnect. Hasta la vista all y'all WFMU streamers and dreamers.
  10:34pm John from Florham park:

@WR night pleasant dreams
  10:34pm JP:

big time high school flashbacks for this bama boy here
  10:34pm CC:

Ok...well... I guess everybody went to bed or else they're watching the Oscars???...sheesh!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm WR:

Will be interested in hearing results John from Florham park.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Aitch:

Widespread panic perhaps?

Hi and bye WR!

My dad got hoodwinked on the phone before, cc.
  10:37pm JP:

haven't seen these guys in almost a decade, might have to cop a ticket to one of these Beacon shows
Avatar 10:38pm Jeff Conklin:

Man I'd love to see them at the Beacon. My last WSP show was in 99 at Roseland
  10:38pm John from Florham park:

@Jeff Conklin damn fucking right
  10:39pm Will:

Porch Song always a great one
  10:39pm Steve Smith:

Enjoying the show, Jeff. Is the Pacific Range LP actually available to purchase somewhere?
  10:39pm CC:

This kicks all the right asses!
Avatar 10:59pm Hams:

  11:00pm nardo:

I think my speakers just caught fire
  11:00pm JP:

Hams, correct. That show is sold out but if you have a way you should go catch them
  11:01pm Will:

I was wondering how this release wasn't sold out yet.
  11:02pm Will:

Just sick
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Mr. Pumpy:

Check again...I may have gotten the last one.
Avatar 11:04pm Hams:

sold out? well, damn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Mr. Pumpy:

OR...it's 1 out of 500 out of unlimited. I always wonder.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm mb:

Will there be an algorithm free way to get this vinyl at shows?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm Mr. Pumpy:

The site says it will the on merch tables and available to Jewish cowboys named Bucky Goldstein wearing plaid spats. So, if the spats fit...
Avatar 11:06pm Centripetal Force:

I'm reeeaaaal nervous about this lacquer plant situation. :(
  11:08pm JP:

@mb yeah Forsyth will have some at his shows, idk if GP will be distributing any themselves
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Mr. Pumpy:

Thanks, Jeff. Killer tunes. May duck out soon.
Avatar 11:10pm Saul Wright:

Just got back from Parasite. Damn it, I just missed The Forsyth and GP supergroup!
Avatar 11:11pm Centripetal Force:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Mr. Pumpy:

Saul...it is grounds for re-analyzing all you know to be true. It was a mind-melter!
  11:13pm Jordan:

Greetings from Northfield, MN. Just wanted to say I am one of the lucky few who will get the Peoples Motel LP in the Mail. Very excited
  11:13pm jnolan:

Garcia Peoples coming to the west coast this spring!! Can't wait to see them live
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Mr. Pumpy:

I thought that was definitely some Frippertronics in the beginning there!!!
Avatar 11:14pm Jeff Conklin:

It sold out??
  11:15pm JP:

@ Jeff Freaks Ball, not the Forsyth LP
Avatar 11:15pm Jeff Conklin:

@#jnolan: Hell yeah, what show you hitting?

@Centripetal: Thew laquer situation is crazy!
Avatar 11:19pm Centripetal Force:

:) Thanks, Jeff.
  11:19pm CC:

The harmonics are fine!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm Mr. Pumpy:

Jeff...thanks for the Forsyth/Peoples. I wanted to go to that show but was otherwise engaged. Nicked the vinyl. Thanks again.
  11:20pm Steve Smith:

Hearing the new Dire Wolves makes me happy. (Mine came in yesterday's mail.) Also: Jeffrey Alexander's Bandcamp subscription is a gift that keeps giving.
  11:22pm jnolan:

@Jeff: They're playing the hi-hat in Los Angeles. Will have to shlep all the way across town on the bus but it'll be worth it! Hope to see some of you LA heads there.
Avatar 11:23pm Jeff Conklin:

This is another LP everyone should gobble up!
Avatar 11:25pm northguineahills:

Dire Wolves sound like Bardo Pond w/ Fairport....
Avatar 11:26pm Jeff Conklin:

@northguinea: I hear that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm chresti:

Dire Wolves reminded me of Buffalo Daughter, a little bit.
Avatar 11:28pm Jeff Conklin:

I know the name but have never heard Buffalo Daughter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm Mr. Pumpy:

Jeff...are you on the take? har har pfffftttt
Avatar 11:29pm Jeff Conklin:

I'm on the take of people putting out great music who don't get hype from the mone
y machine that is the music industry
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm Mr. Pumpy:

They are very similar to Buffalo Aunt's Sister's Son's Syster (stylized)
  11:30pm patrick:

feel like I got Jaime riding home with me with this East Mountain Joint right now. thanks for that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm Mr. Pumpy:

I am thankful! Just joshing around. I'm on that take as well. So on that take.
Avatar 11:33pm Saul Wright:

This show is a great resource. Glad radio like this still exists.
  11:35pm saucerful:

Ha I dig the Neil Young influenced guitar solo on this MV & EE song. Hi all, hope you're enjoying your Sunday evening.
Avatar 11:35pm Jeff Conklin:

This is one of the best live MV & EE recordings I've ever heard. Eric at NYC Taper killed it
  11:35pm saucerful:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm chresti:

Kind of a psyche sound-a Japanese group, from the 90s/early thousands, Buffalo Daughter
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm Mr. Pumpy:

Yeah man...NYC Taper is really going the extra mile here.
Avatar 11:39pm J Wede:

great to hear all this music after a 4 hour flight
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm Mr. Pumpy:

This sounds like a four hour flight. Int he best way...wherein you simply zone out and let the din become one.
  11:44pm Jeff Conklin:

Traveling without moving
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Mr. Pumpy - Can you hook your dad up to this soundtrack? Would that help anything?
Avatar 11:46pm J Wede:

Yeah, I don't know if I landed in some ways! Definitely exchanged the travel vibe for this set - great medicine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm Mr. Pumpy:

Not sure if I can. Would it help...I think it would!
  11:49pm CC:

typically On-Q!!!
Avatar 11:53pm Saul Wright:

Elkhorn is always good stuff
Avatar 11:54pm mariano:

Grrrreat show, Jeff, thanks!

Thanks Jeff, goodnight everybody!
Avatar 11:56pm J Wede:
