Oh, I think you're right Photocopy! I remember being fairly obsessed by it when it first hit but then the novelty wore off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - you're very welcome :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Linda Lee:

actually saw 'the graduate' again fairly recently. amazing film. she was very hot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - mainstream light comedy films, usually with middle aged TV stars, and sometimes a generation gap, and very light grooviness and Mod overtones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Rich in Washington:

I remember an online station that I was doing a show on bitd used to throw these big turntable.fm parties with all the participating DJs and it would be played over the stream. The guy that ran it 'this is going to be the FUTURE of radio!' and then it quickly fizzled out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I confess that I've never seen The Graduate all the way through ... I need to rectify that!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - I think it must have been a US thing. Not ringing any bells here!
Avatar 5:25pm StringOFperils:

ahhh..thanks...and yes...grooviness ruled
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Linda Lee:

see it for Ann Bancroft. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I know there were a million of those films but my mind went completely blank when I was looking for trailers ...
Avatar 5:26pm StringOFperils:

the Graduate's photography is great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Wasn't Anne Bancroft only a couple of years older than Dustin Hoffmann in real life?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Linda Lee:

yes, it is amazing photography. that leg shot .. iconic. superb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Linda Lee:

let's check on that.

The Party is pretty great for swingin' turned on grooviness

I know some trivia about the poster! :-)
Avatar 5:28pm StringOFperils:

yes, Bancroft was near in age to Hoffman
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The leg in the poster is not Anne Bancroft - it's Linda Gray of later Dallas fame :-)

@StringOFperils - I remembered that one ;-)

Farmer's Market - possibly the Art Farmer tune - Lambert Hendricks & Ross did a version

Hey spacebrother!
Avatar 5:41pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@5:26 DJ GeorgyGirl: Anne Bancroft was a mighty SIX years older than Dustin Hoffmann. What a naughty on-screen relationship, tut tut. I never had any idea it was Linda Gray's leg. Excuse me for a very bad pun, but she was often legless as JR Ewing's long suffering alcoholic wife.
Avatar 5:41pm spacebrother:

Hey GG. We'll see if this vinyl thing works later.

Hullo, Rich!

I LOVE THIS !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@zivilars - I was watching a documentary about L7 today and they said that sometimes when you're ahead of the times you're behind with the rent. I thought that summed it up really well especially with bands like Fanny too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Linda Lee! A pleasure to see you here.
And i can't get enough of these goofy Beatles covers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Otis Totsi:

I suspect I may have you all dancing again ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Otis!! Hello! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Linda Lee:

hello! i heard that Beat Club set. an amazing set. just fabulous. Fanny was far ahead ~ that's all. victims, i think, of both sexism and racism, aside of a record label that didn't know how to promote them. i think June was one of the best guitarists of her day, really. she came up with amazing, amazing sounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Otis Totsi:

Been listening at the desk a-workin'.
Avatar 5:57pm zivilars:

@DJ GG: I guess so – somewhere in an alternate universe, I can see Fanny easily as popular as for example The Runaways
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Granny did some wonderful dancing during Friday's Flange show :-) <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

I have Linda Lee to thank for getting me into Fanny :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The band Fanny. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm Linda Lee:

"“One of the most important female bands in American rock has been buried without a trace. And that is Fanny. They were one of the finest fucking rock bands of their time, in about 1973. They were extraordinary: They wrote everything, they played like motherfuckers, they were just colossal and wonderful, and nobody’s ever mentioned them. They’re as important as anybody else who’s ever been, ever; it just wasn’t their time. Revivify Fanny. And I will feel that my work is done.”

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm Linda Lee:

did that man just mention the Turists??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - he did. He knew!! :-)
Avatar 6:02pm zivilars:

@Linda Lee: They definitely deserved and deserve SO much more recognition!

i think it's coming round about now. June's just done something for a documentary :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - so looking forward to that!!

that Beat Club video is getting a *lot* of new fans involved. it's really wonderful.
alas, June's sister Jean is still in recovery after her stroke 2 years ago (she played bass & sang with the band ~ incredible player) & there's a gofundme for her online. we hope to have her back on the bass very soon.

Avatar 6:11pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@6:01 Linda Lee: those Bowie's words about Fanny could also be used when talking about The Ace Of Cups. A pity they made no studio recordings then, but the 2003 collection of live recordings is good stuff and indeed a miracle those recordings even exist let alone in such good quality.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Linda Lee:

i've heard of them! yes! there were so many, really. gone without a trace.

@6:12 Linda Lee: the said Ace Of Cups live recording retrospective "It's Bad for You But Buy It" is on Spotify, really worth checking. And yes, just like GeorgyGirl quoted the L7 doc, they were ahead of their time and behind the rent (I guess there was a song about the latter problem). Also there is contemporary video (from a 1968 tv performance): www.youtube.com...

I have a picture of me with Les Paul wearing my tiara and pretending to pick his nose! Funny fella!

Highly recommend the Les Paul album :-)

don't thank me, thank those lovely ladies - they are still around (plus the fine fellow Alec Palao of Sting-Rays/Sneetches fame should be thanked too as he had an essential role in getting those old recordings released)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Linda Lee:

beautiful.
Avatar 6:24pm zivilars:

I'm still curious how Nico will fit into this whole happy sound mix ... :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Nico?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

LOL!!! That's my brain fading there! I shall edit that ;-)
Avatar 6:25pm zivilars:

I assumed by your show description that she will be played today, too ...?
Avatar 6:25pm StringOFperils:

Nibelungen by Bert kampfeart....what.....oh..the air just got sucked out of my joke
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Nope - that was me looking at last week's description and not paying attention ;-)

LOL!! You're safe :-)

i'm rollin' as i listen!
Avatar 6:26pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

Also,speaking of the previous set, the world of recording was never the same after Les Paul, overdubbing and recording at variable speeds (back when it was no simple task)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

All sorted now - no Nico in the description :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - oh absolutely! Another documentary I watched, about The Carpenters, had a lot of stuff about Les Paul's overdubbing. Revolutionary. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There's that Otis again ;-)

completely offtopic, dear GG, have you ever done a show about the music used in Dennis Potter series/films?

hi GG - thanks for having us!

@Photocopy - I haven't, no! I haven't seen a lot of his shows, I have to confess, but I shall look into that :-)

@StringOFperils - oh thank you!!! That's made me smile :-)
Avatar 6:39pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@6:33 StringOFperils: I am a proud owner of a Pennies From Heaven 3-lp set (bought from Snooper's Paradise, Brighton for £3). But almost any of his series has good use of music, especially the Singing Detective. Also they are very disturbing at times, when considering he employed autobiographical elements in many of his works.
Avatar 6:39pm StringOFperils:

Singing Detective was fantastic
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - I know exactly where you were in Snoopers when you found that :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Linda Lee:

Snooper's Paradise! fantastic name for a shop :-)

PFH is my favorite TV series of all time.

GG: i was just telling my sweetie that i am learning so much about various times and places of Brit rock. Thanks!
Avatar 6:41pm StringOFperils:

nice to imagine that Brighton rock is just a candy stick, and all the music warehoused there is fabulous other stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - I'm so pleased! :-) And thank YOU for being here :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - yes!! And cake is on me :-)

I was looking forward to the Fringe and Pride this year - so now I need goals!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Linda Lee:

are they postponed?

ahh yes. goals. thinks back....hhmmm...yes...hmmm...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Linda Lee:

what shit this is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Yep - Pride was cancelled a couple of days ago :-(
Avatar 6:47pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@6:39 DJ GeorgyGirl: I almost missed my flight because of the said 2016 visit there. Now where in Snoopers was this place I found the said Pennies From Heaven 3-lp from, tell me ;) I miss that place :(

@6:40 Linda Lee: yes just like DJ GeorgyGirl said @6:41, it is a wonderful place, I have actually found more records from there than from the Brighton record shops at the time - and they were not too bad either; I found Pentangle & Damned original pressings for £9 (which is impossible nowadays) in 2013 from a record shop the name of which escapes me now (and as a bonus I spotted Nick Cave having a Saturday afternoon stroll)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Linda Lee:

goddamn it.

Avatar 6:51pm StringOFperils:

Haven't heard anything about Pride being axed here in Toronto this year (yet). Too early to call that one I guess. It's a big cash-cow for this burg.

@6:49 DJ GeorgyGirl: no the record shop was not Borderline, I went there only in 2016, in 2013 I went to another place, can not even find it with Google maps now. I remember a homeless man sitting on a bargain record crate outside the shop and the owner being OK with it, asking "hi, what's the word on the streets?" (the said homeless man was probably well known and liked by the staff).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - I'll have a think :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Rich in Washington:
