Hey Nick, Scott, everyone.

Hey Nick, Mariano, everyone.
  Swag For Life Member 12:06am Nick Name:

Hello one and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06am Stevel:

HOly shit. You people are still here!

How are you, Scott?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06am coelacanth∅:

hello Nick and Scott and mariano and Stevel.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07am Scott Williams:

@Stevel, WE PERSIST! I am well, thank you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07am mariano:

Hey Stevel and coela!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07am Stevel:

Nick: If I'm listening to your show, I'm up too late, but that's what happens. I've always loved your transition from Dave the Spazz. Such a peaceful and sincere voice. Never change!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08am mariano:

Oh and Nick, I owe you an apology: remember a couple of weeks back when I mentioned I was having gumbo and fried chicken and you said it was making you hungry, then I said it sucked and you weren't missing much? Well, actually it was friggin' unbelievable! Felt bad for making you hungry though so I lied.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09am Stevel:

Fish, mariano! Greetings on the first of May.

Scott, I am so proud of all of you, especially the skeleton crew. There is an energy in crisis management. Hoping you are able to keep drawing on that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09am Stevel:

mariano: you are a total dick. In these times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10am mariano:

I know, Stevel - I've been carrying around this guilt like an albatross around my neck!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12am Stevel:

As well you should. Guilt is good.

Oh, wait. The world is ending. Guilt is passe. Carry on.

Now I'm hungry. Do you cook the chicken and gumbo?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14am mariano:

No, it was from Dooky Chase's, a legendary New Orleans restaurant. That's the other part of the guilt: I slandered the memory of Leah Chase.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15am Scott Williams:

Goddammit, there are no more snacks here, THANKS MARIANO
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15am Stevel:

Jesus Nick! We're tryin' to talk here!

And to think I was talking about amphetamines earlier.

Wow! on the third track! Where ya' gonna go from here?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15am Stevel:

Scott: Told ya'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17am Stevel:

I have a friend in NO. He's a junkie bum, works Bourbon Street with his dog. It plays dead, or drunk. He does OK. Even has a cardboard coffin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17am mariano:

Fuck, I did it again! Like a Twilight Zone episode...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17am Scott Williams:

Well, if I get thirsty, at least there's plenty of bleach
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17am Stevel:

I had no idea this was The Flaming Groovies. Wow.

Scott: Ever forward. Ever onward.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18am Stevel:

Is there a decent book about The Flaming Groovies? Who the fuck were those guys?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19am mariano:

I'll keep an eye out for him, Stevel. Hope he's doing ok.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am TomDash:

Smokin' Groovies tune! Love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21am Stevel:

His name is Nolan. Tell him I said hi. I don't think he's currently using, but ... Its a fucking miracle he's still alive. Oddly enough, I keep up with him on FB. Weird world.

Thank you.

Dog's name is Galyn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21am TomDash:

Stevel - not sure if there's a book, but they're one of the greatest American RocknRoll bands of all time!
  12:23am Jim H:

Evening all! Hate I missed a Groovies too.
  12:24am Jim H:

*Toon. I lose the ability to thumb type late at night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25am Stevel:

Tom. No shit. I Came in on FG Now, 3-4 years after it came out. So luded out and so rock.

BTW, you run a great radio show yourself. Just saying.
  12:26am Jim H:

A friend of mine in college had a lucite guitar he bought cause Roy Loney had one on an FG album cover. True story. You would know his name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27am TomDash:

awww, shucks - thanks Stevel. Big fan of Mssr. Name - taking notes as we type!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36am mariano:

Stevel: I'll definitely say hi for you if I see him. Haven't been to the Quarter in ages even though I'm right next to it, maybe I'll stroll down tomorrow. Also, ditto on Tom's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46am Stevel:

Give him money if you like. Or don't. I don't, but he's a great cat.
  12:49am Semm:

good evening to everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49am Stevel:

Good evening, Semm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54am coelacanth∅:

i was driving by a junkie friend who was flying a sign and he looked clean, acted clean. i'd heard he got clean. so i gave him a box of change on my passenger seat -probably 5-6 bucks.
next time i saw him he was definitely using. he didn't even see me. out of it.
... but, how to know? i don't want him to starve.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03am mariano:

That's just such a fucked up situation all around. My best friend in Brooklyn has a brother who's basically a heroin lifer, and my friend is the one that constantly gets guilted and manipulated into cleaning up his messes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03am Stevel:

Fish. You do what you do. Its a different fucking world. I wouldn't last a week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04am Kelly Jones:

Scott... it's good to hear your voice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04am TomDash:

psychedelic...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04am mariano:

Tom, you might have a copyright claim against Lucifer Rising ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05am Stevel:

Now, if addiction were to be treated as a medical condition...

sigh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05am Scott Williams:

Why thank you Kelly! Miss you, friend.
  1:05am Jim H:

Scott, we all appreciate what you’re doing to keep FMU on air with all the difficulties of far flung djs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05am Scott Williams:

I appreciate that, Jim H! Thank you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05am mariano:

Oh, except that Lucifer Rising came out in '85, call off the lawyers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06am Kelly Jones:

Miss you too bruh. Is Jim the Poet there yet in his bloody bunny security uniform?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07am TomDash:

3 cheers for Scott indeed! and mariano (shhhh...) that cat is very litigious. Let's keep it between ourselves for now...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08am Scott Williams:

The big pink bunnyman has just arrived! He's making coffee
  Swag For Life Member 1:08am Nick Name:

Hello all - thx Scott! - yes, my computer is literally dying infront of me so we've had to jump to this archive, not possible without the skeleton crew - thx again Scott
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09am TomDash:

seamless and solid Nick Name! Thank you Scott for making it be that way!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10am Scott Williams:

no worries Nick! Want me to do the accuplaylist? Easy peasy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10am Ike:

I agree with Kelly freaking Jones.

Eek. Sorry to hear that Nick's new episode went kablooey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10am Kelly Jones:

Sounds great Nick, no worries. Scott is your guardian angel. Well... he's all of ours I suppose.
  Swag For Life Member 1:10am Nick Name:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14am mariano:

Scott saves the day (night?) again, hurrah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14am coelacanth∅:

Steve yeah i don't know how long i'd last either. never want to ask people for money.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16am coelacanth∅:

-yeesh that conversation was a long time ago. i was in the kitchen because somebody made me realise how hungry i was.
...and i guess i missed some tech drama?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17am mariano:

[whistles nervously]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18am Stevel:

Fish: He's OK asking for $$. Its a survival technique.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19am coelacanth∅:

-i don't understand the lucifer rising comment either but i have been noticing how gloriously bright ol' lucy in the sky has been lately. (not tonight cuz rain)
  Swag For Life Member 1:19am Nick Name:

Hello Kelly - hope you and yours are riding this whole thing ok
  1:19am Jim H:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22am coelacanth∅:

Stevel it's just not something i want to do. -but of course that might change in that situation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24am coelacanth∅:

Thanks Jim. that's what i gathered.
-and i see both these tracks starred already; probably from Nick's show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25am mariano:

coela: Tom's band had a song named Lucifer Rise that's been one of my favorites since I heard it on Liz Berg's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26am coelacanth∅:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29am Kelly Jones:

Thank you Nick Name... my Covid-19 spirit guide and I are muddling through. Hope you are as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29am coelacanth∅:

  Swag For Life Member 1:32am Nick Name:

@ Kelly Jones : yeh getting there, its been testing at times ha ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36am Kelly Jones:

I have days when I feel *normal*(ish) and days when I'm Corangry... It's all over the place. Confidentially, I drink.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39am mariano:

coela: the band was (is?) Imaginary Icons. The song's on this playlist: wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43am Kelly Jones:

I love a good record-is-over-groove sound. For falling asleep to. Seriously.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44am Scott Williams:

Wowwwww, 2 whole minutes - that was soothing

Hey Kelly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46am Kelly Jones:

Jimmy... WHAT THE FUCK MOTHERFUCKER
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46am mariano:

Hmm... interesting, coela - I see my favorites from that Liz B show are still starred even though it's from 2013. Was it you who was telling me they get deleted after a couple of years?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52am coelacanth∅:

mariano not time, but quantity. i think it's 2000 stars.
...and Thanks for that link. i already did that and that song has been played 5-10 times on wfmu!
i was just hoping for a bandcamp page.
i'll listen to the archive tomorrow.

  2:17am greatb:

Hi all. I am also past my bedtime at this point, but it's well worth the listen!
  Swag For Life Member 2:20am Nick Name:

thx for hanging greatb, been past my bedtime too many times in the last month!
  Swag For Life Member 2:22am Nick Name:

...add cabin fever to that and i really do feel like a zombie at the moment
  2:24am greatb:

a lot of people are losing the structure of their days now and sleeping and waking later and later, meanwhile here I am bucking the curve... takes all kinds of FMU listeners!
  2:25am greatb:

some day we will all be da Vincis like Stan :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29am Fox:

great: I was already living like this. I've got no sense of time. The outside world was a frustrating imposition with it's schedules and FOMO dragging me out and pinning me down. Now, I'm freeeeee!
  Swag For Life Member 2:30am Nick Name:

btw- Stan sends his best wishes to everyone, we usually check in once a week on the phone
  2:32am greatb:

that is fantastic Fox! what is your secret? ohh Stan, that is good to know. I wonder what he's doing beyond this loop... probably catching some z's himself!
  Swag For Life Member 2:34am Nick Name:

yes, ha ha - he really is catching up on lost hours from over the years, he says he feels better for it.
  2:38am greatb:

that is good to hear even if we are missing him! he'll come back SuperStan... which out of the gate seems impossible considering the level he was already operating at!
  2:38am duck:

loving these selections all night
Avatar 2:42am Hubig Pie:

Oh inverted world. Been catching up on alot of missed sleep lately. Thanks for the nighttime tunes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43am Fox:

Oh! Nick, please tell Stan I say helloooooo! I'd love to be able to reach him somehow. By smoke signal, I suppose! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43am VincentNifigance:

Is Nick pulling double-duty this 19am?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46am Fox:

greatb: The secret is having the rest of the world shut down and sink to my level, I guess.
  Swag For Life Member 2:46am Faustcan:

Nick! Just tuned in from London and you are back! You are a hero!

  Swag For Life Member 2:49am Nick Name:

Will do Fox!
  2:49am greatb:

@Fox I like it!
  Swag For Life Member 2:53am Nick Name:

VincentNifigance: no, but Scott and the skeleton crew are, they really do deserve a commemorative sculptor at fmu for keeping things afloat

Thanks Nick Name. Cheers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58am Fox:

mb: I saw a slow specialist once who explained it's easier to fix your sleep schedule by going forward instead of backwards. He's right. I was so nocturnal I went all the way around and ended up being an early riser for a while!
