"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

@Steveo. You've been missing out. JA starts with it quite often. He offered a vinyl 12" of the song as a DJ premium last year.

g'morning. Steveo, ironically I've never played rolnick in anything less than real time/ or sent an audio file to the station at 3am

Checking in before I go out for a run... a cool rendition of this tune.
Avatar 9:08am TDK60:

Was thinking of a bicycle ride today but not on the bike path--too close to others. Maybe will hit the more empty streets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10am David (in London):

@Snoochie - Good plan I reckon. I'm fine. My wife is a keyworker, so I was driving her and supplies around this morning. With the sun shining, the windows down and the Ramones playing, it was a pretty good morning all told.
Avatar 9:10am Snoochienucci:

@TDK my thoughts exactly, even riding around the lake by my house the other day i felt a little too close to all the walkers lol. But i guess we cant be overly paranoid too, some fresh air is always good. Plus may as well take advantage of those empty streets
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11am steveo:

hey John. Strange times. Thanks for making it happen.

(@sim i was just differentiating between internet stream and terrestrial radio signals)
Avatar 9:12am TDK60:

..yeh Snoochie. Where are you?
Avatar 9:13am Snoochienucci:

@DIL exactly, like we were saying the other day, its hard to fully enjoy the beautiful days with all that is going on. But still important to enjoy them when we can

you know i'm a connoisseur
Avatar 9:16am John Allen:

actually ya'll might want to turn down the volume at the mic breaks. I'll let you decide
Avatar 9:16am Snoochienucci:

@TDK gotcha, must be alot more of a change in manhattan. Out here in the suburbs there is def less traffic, but alot more ppl walking around the streets now too. Its very odd, as im sure it is everywhere
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16am steveo:

@sim clay's a much better intro to the station/day fer sure
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19am p20:

@D(iL): The Ramones make everything better! And they remind us to stay 1 JRu apart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20am steveo:

i hope there won't be a quiz, i totally missed the piano one, even after you warned me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20am Handy Haversack:

Is an imperial JRu any different, @David?
Avatar 9:22am TDK60:

I prefer the Mick Fleetwood stay-away-unit. Isn't he 7 feet tall?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22am David (in London):

@p20 - That's probably why I chose them, wasn't it? And because I simply CANNOT feel bad when I am listening to 'I Wanna Be Sedated.'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23am David (in London):

TDK - I did raise the MFu with Handy, but our investigations didn't come to much. Try in and record the data.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24am Handy Haversack:

The MFu and the JRu are coterminous in the y axis, though MFu is much more expansive along the x axis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24am p20:

I think we have to unite behind a single candidate, or things will get too splintered and confusing. Joey For Life!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25am Handy Haversack:

Agreed, @p20. Standards will save us!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25am David (in London):

Handy - I think all fields in pre-enclosure England were measured in rods, poles, perches and hymans, so he hold good here too. Especially in the Finsbury Park area. www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am p20:

I told my wife yesterday about the JRu. She said "You know, I'm 6 feet tall... I don't need to imagine Joey Ramone to know what 6 feet looks like". I'm over six feet myself but it just cheers me up to visualize Joey Ramone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am Threemoons:

Any good new releases today?
Avatar 9:27am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Who has carrot cake?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28am Threemoons:

@rev I wish I had carrot cake. I'd make some but there's been a run on flour...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28am p20:

@D(iL): Good one! And I love "It's Alive!"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29am David (in London):

@p20 - Exactly so. I like picturing Joey whenever I'm out and about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29am Threemoons:

And in NYC we prefer the JRu for social distancing
Avatar 9:29am TDK60:

John, you're emanating from a hunker bunker?
  9:30am Jeff formerly from Rahway:

I baked a delicious bread w/invasive Japanese Knotweed growing in the park. Gotta forage locally in these apocalyptic times.
Avatar 9:30am John Allen:

hey TDK, did the show last night on my computer w/o a mic, sent the show to scott early this morning
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30am Handy Haversack:

Pre-Enclosure UK would have known how to react! The JRu has deep pastoral roots.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32am p20:

@JffR: I did not know that was edible. Good information!

Handy - Yes indeed. There is, of course, the old Gloucestershire folk song, 'Joey O'er the Hedgerows Go', which was later adapted by Martin Carthy.

@TDK60: I've really been wondering how many of the necessary structural changes that are coming about because of this crisis will be un-done as soon as is it over. And if the citizens will stand for that.
Avatar 9:43am John Allen:

thanks Peter, you do the same

JA - according to the blurb on yer listen window.. you were supposed to play a dub tune after the jazz #??? ".. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool?...."

No Trend is the East Coast Flipper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am Cmurtha:

Its a good list. I should add Nizam Hikmet's time regulation institute to it given everyone going mad. It's about a a group of men who ensure that all the clocks are set properly, and its a satire on modernity and measuring time in a western capitalist way, and the dehumanizing nature of that from a early-turkish (late ottoman) author. Its a bit clunky in English, but the lesson is very much still at issue.
  10:21am P-90:

None of the female authors I mentioned after Troubles comment about almost all-male suggestions made the list. The battle for equality goes on..
  10:22am morphe':

Another great bird book:

Did Mike Davis' book on the bird flu make the cut?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23am Crudbringer:

Well, since I'm just as guilty, after suggesting _Lizard Music_ by Pinkwater, I'll throw in _The Westing Game_ by Ellen Raskin. And of course the entire _Treehorn_ cycle by Florence Parry Heide (my little Crudlette was so happy that was included on the FMU Double-Dip premium!)

@P-90: I'll review the list and make sure all of your suggestions are there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26am Peter from Dover NJ:

p20 and TDK60... curious about what sort of structural changes you think might come about when this is all over? Personally I think the right hand side of the aisle wants massive casualties and the Hunger Games.

@Ally...I saw Flipper in the 80's...those exact words were uttered..many a Slam Dance was had that night, let me tell ya.
  10:30am morphe':

Flipper - (repeat story) CBs in the 80s. They refused to leave the stage and threatened to destroy the place.. Show went on and on and on.. They invited folks up
to play their instruments!!!! Memorable
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32am Alvy Singer:

@DJ Guin I saw Flipper in the early 80's too. You left their shows absolutely devastated. That band could put down some beer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32am p20:

@P-90: I see that you mentioned Peng Shepard and Catherine Asaro. Peng Shepard is on the list. You mentioned Asaro at the very end of the show and I missed her - not a case of bias, just simple error. I fixed it. I don't see anything else you suggested yesterday that's not on the list. Please correct me if I'm wrong. But don't accuse me of being biased.

Peter, gosh I don't know; hard to keep up with the jaw-dropping idiocy.

it's kinda worked inself into that, hasn't it?
  10:40am P-90:

p20: I have never accused anyone of anything. The joke about the battle for equality was a joke.
I didn’t see Shepherd’s The Book of M on the doc when I looked yesterday, good to hear that she made it. I was also surprised that no one mentioned Andre Norton, who was the pioneer of pioneers as a female science fiction author, and whose novel Star Man’s Son is one of the all-time classics of apocalyptic science fiction.

Good morning John, just tuning in - glad you were able to cobble together a show Upstate! Hello at the boards, Scott!

Another absolutely pioneering female SF author is James Tiptree Jr., whose short stories explored apocalyptic themes as brilliantly as anyone ever has.

sounds like a lot of work, sir
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44am p20:

@P-20: Sorry, I guess I took the joke seriously. I am very much pro-inclusion and equality. It took me a while to finish putting the list together so you might have seen it while it was incomplete.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52am Cmurtha:

I foresee the rise of a new and dangerous facism wherein the strength of the nation continues to erode, where people are willing to die for the death cult that is the economy, and the right as a stop gap realizing that it can have populist social policies and be racist and evil too. Just judging by what folks are saying and doing around the globe. I'm not optimistic. Maybe people will realize the danger we are in and do something about it and things will change. Fingers crossed.

One bonus tho it's extremely dangerous is, those righties are finally exposing themselves for the shitheads they truly are.

Heya JA, AM-ers, and rightist shitheads.

I'm out ... see ya later
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54am Cmurtha:

Though I don't think most people would agree with that, I'm pretty on the Hobsbawm train that nation states and nationalism have out lived their use and will crumble into new amalgamation soon, though people still despertly cling to them, not realizing they are articulating discourses that do not work in the current rubric of nations

I am heartened by the spectacle of the already-shrinking Republican Party throwing themselves all-in behind Trump. When he is gone, disgraced, dismissed as a sad mistake, an experiment doomed from day one, that party will have a hell of an uphill battle getting past it. I don’t think there’s been much consideration of how they’re going to reinvent themselves as an entity with anything to sell to the majority of Americans.
  11:04am Nitpickr:

@John Allen Haha hearing these things is like nails on a chalkboard for me. Love the show and thanks for keeping it going!

Morning all! John, sounds good! The mic definitely needs replacing, but still, sounds pretty good overall.

The Demz are as weak as the people who elected them. People really do believe in a just world. Temporarily embarrassed millionaires.

thx Ken. Listening on the 90.1 airwaves, great reception today
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14am Crudbringer:

Forgive my cynicism, but the inevitable death of the Republican party has been fortold since I was in kneepants. That doom prophecy is part of what keeps it alive, it makes you Rebel and not Imperial if only you're brave enough to join it.

Back from the supermarkets! Universal JRus still not within sight.

For Golden Age female SF writers, I vastly prefer James Tiptree Jr. to Norton. C. J. Cherryh is amaing and prolific. I read a TON of newer female, queer, and trans SF, and I mentioned several of them that p20 captured for the list.

All the political bashing in here is turning one of the few remaining pure good things a little bit sour. Please stop pooping in the swimming pool. A right, a left, a right, a left. Don't you see that you're punching yourself in the face? The demagogues don't need you, but you need each other. Now more than ever.
