I find it really hard not to read "Potato Lake" as Potato Latke. Happy early Passover, everyone!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:11pm Doug Schulkind:

Ha! I was so focused on Potato Latke that I missed Sem's brilliant observation.
Avatar 12:11pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Doug! I guess that tape is subliminal advertising for potato latkes.
Avatar 12:11pm βrian:

"Shoulders of giants," yo.
Avatar 12:12pm Tony Coulter:

As you may have noticed this tape heavily favors one channel -- it's the tape, not my tape deck.

@ Jtothek: It's these special eds: www.discogs.com...
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:46pm JtotheK:

Thanks! Though I figured it wasn't an unreleased Special Ed of "I Got It Made" fame. How many times did booking agents book incorrectly and have bewildered audiences???

That falling sound effect at 12:54 or so is one of my very favorite sound effects. Always LOL at that one.

"impeccably clean towel" —Julia, I haven't seen one of those in this jernt since the rona made my laundry room a minefield.
Avatar 1:03pm Tony Coulter:

As I said, one of the two members of Special Ed was also in the King Crimson-esque band Inserts. Some of you may recognize this LP of theirs ("Out of the Box"), which has cover art by the great Cal Schenkel: www.discogs.com...

Even before I became a vegetable, stuffing was my favorite part of Thanksgiving -- that, and pumpkin pie.

"I'm hungry all the time anyway"—that's a tapeworm, son. We're gonna need you to sit in front of some hot soup for a few hours.

"Phibes! For once, have mercy!"
::farting intensifies::
Avatar 1:39pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Rob! Wow!! Do tell!! I was wondering if you or Ken knew him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Rob W:

He would also do insane marathon cut-up / montage radio shows during the holidays while the students were away, in fact he was still doing them until sadly WCBN started switching to non-human-hosted automated overnights.
  1:41pm listener james from westwood:

Accentuated by my having watched a bunch of the old Farting Preacher tapes on YouTube Sunday night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Rob W:

I first knew him as a member of a sort of Euro-inspired avant-jazz-proggy band called the Inserts. I know his real name but I feel I shouldn't share it publicly! Haven't been in touch directly since back then - not sure if Ken is in touch, he may have popped up a little after Ken left Ann Arbor.
Avatar 1:43pm Tony Coulter:

I've already mentioned his real name: Mark Murrell
  1:43pm allanToronto:

Imagine SETI or something like it, on the other end, light years from here, receiving these radio waves 100000 years from now.

Gotcha Tony - thanks for playing this on Tape Hiss, it's a blast to hear this within the WFMU Multiverse!

more primitive electronics
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:56pm spodiodi:

(please :D ) good stuff, Tony
Avatar 1:57pm Tony Coulter:

It is! I'm kind of surprised they're still so totally unknown.
Avatar 1:58pm Tony Coulter:

But, then again, there's an endless supply of great unknown bands and musicians.
Avatar 2:06pm Tony Coulter:

By the way, one of the musicians in Potato Lake -- guitarist Jim Quinlan -- was also in another NYC band I've played on Tape Hiss: One Big Square Foot of Sod www.discogs.com...
Avatar 2:08pm Tony Coulter:

Actually, two members: Potato Lake drummer Mike Boals was also in One Big Square Foot of Sod

Started okay but got out of hand, that last one.
Avatar 🥁 2:51pm Sem:

You done it once more, Tony, a Tape Hiss program that asks more questions than it answers. Perfect for these questionable times. Thanks, and see you and all next time 'round the block.

Thanks, Sem! See you next time!

What!??!@?%! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [Long pause for your to observe my fully extended pouty lower lip, eyes blinking back tears] A tape hiss Tuesday and I missed it. Just like coming late to Passover dinner and only one dried out latke comments board with no sauce archived sounds. How did I let myself get caught out again. [Pout resumes. . . . . . ]
