Travels With Brindle  Holy Tire Iron   Options https://youtu.be/pbDaeyDl8aI    2019    "In the 90s, a guy named Reverend Ray had an audio zine called Holy Tire Iron. You dialed a number with an East Boston exchange, listened to an audio collage, and left your own message with the prompt “when I was a kid, there was a game we used to play.” Over two decades since Holy Tire Iron rolled over to the great voicemail in the sky, I wrote a song about the beloved party line."

Holy Tire Iron  Side One   Options Work In Progress... Volume Four  Holy Tire Iron  1993  Cassette  Holy Tire Iron was a 90s audio zine project by Reverend Raye, from West Somerville, Massachusetts. One would call the phone number and listen to the stories that others had left on the machine. It was not a 900 service, so if you were outside of the Boston area you had to pay for long distance phone charges. There was no advertising, the 'message changed every day,' and was made up of what callers called in. It was active for a number of years in the early-mid 1990s. The motto was "Inspiration is only a phone call away" and Raye called it free public media and added "Would you like fries with your art?"

Hello Melon-Balls and Mint-Sugar Garnishes!
Avatar 11:00am Sonderangebot:

I'd love to start my day with some melons and balls! Yay! Hi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00am Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Otis and Friendly Persuaders!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01am Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Sonderangebot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03am Jan Turkenburg:

Otis, your mic sound is a bit distorted.
Avatar 11:05am Sonderangebot:

Hi Jan :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05am Otis Fodder:

Oooh, let's test it after this song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am Jan Turkenburg:

The music is ok. And it just sounds like your too close to the mic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am Carmichael:

Heya Otis and seddless green grapes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am Carmichael:

Your voice is overmodulating.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10am Jan Turkenburg:

That was the word I was looking for, Thanks, Carmichael :-)
Avatar 11:11am Sonderangebot:

Nope still not good, probably your cat ate it during the night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12am Jan Turkenburg:

Music sounds good and when you moving away from the mic it salso sounds good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12am Carmichael:

Much better now that you're further away from the mic.
Avatar 11:12am Sonderangebot:

Speak softly, very moistly, from a distance, it should be ok
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13am Carmichael:

HA HA, speak moistly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14am Jan Turkenburg:

the last 3 were good thissis
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15am Carmichael:

Do you have an alternate mic input?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am Jan Turkenburg:

This sounds much better
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17am Carmichael:

Sounds much cleaner, no distortion. you could raise the level a bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am Kat in Chicago:

That watermelon basket seems like an awful lot of work for something that isn't even that cute. Just chop up the fruit and put it in a nice bowl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am Otis Fodder:

Thanks all for helping diagnose mic issues. It was the channel on the mackie mixer, almost positive, when I switched to another mic line input we were okay. Thanks again!!
Avatar 11:25am Sonderangebot:

Hi Kat, the person who likes that basket perhaps has an obsession with balls and round things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28am Otis Fodder:

So many balls!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32am Carmichael:

This sounds like the music from The Dating Game.

Mornin' Solo!
Avatar 11:47am solo mon:

We were obsessed w John esuagas nugget as the commercials constantly played on the tv in SF in the 90s. He was one of those guys who insisted on being in his commercials. A sloppy spokesmodel in a ten gallon hat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am Otis Fodder:

I have been there so many times Solo, but in the 90s. Wish I could have visited in the 60s or 70s.
Avatar 11:48am solo mon:

Then he opened one in Vegas called “John Esuagas Other Nugget”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am Otis Fodder:

Did he?! Fantastic!
Avatar 11:49am solo mon:

they always had some ripe talent showcased at ten nugget

Avatar 11:50am solo mon:

I was personally obsessed with the peppermill
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am Otis Fodder:

The peppermill, have stayed there when visiting (one of my favs) + hit the lobby many times for watered-down drinks while waiting for friends to go elsewhere. Buffet was not too shabby either, won't get you sick like Cal Neva $1.99 steak and eggs in the 90s.
Avatar 11:53am solo mon:

Looks like they remodeled it to look “classy”but back in the 90s it was all purple and pink
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am Otis Fodder:

Sond - Is that postcard link for the nugget online, if so would you share here?
Avatar 11:55am solo mon:

We saw Charo at the nugget once man that was amazing
Avatar 11:56am solo mon:

The sound was very good
Avatar 11:56am Sonderangebot:

I have the same card at home but here it is: www.flickr.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57am Otis Fodder:

That's the one! Thanks Sondy!
Avatar 12:04pm solo mon:

What’s wrong w Bertha and Tina’s eyes???
Avatar 12:07pm solo mon:

Apparently one of the tests is to identify a drawing of an elephant?
Avatar 12:08pm solo mon:

Yes the rock cats! I want to see that.

I'm watching a Ukranian newcaster lose her tooth mid-broadcast with this as the soundtrack
Avatar 12:19pm Bri The Beatnik:

Otis, have you ever heard the Ultra Lounge collection?
Avatar 12:19pm solo mon:

I just keep thinking of the zookeeper character in mighty boosh and how he doesn’t know what any of the animals are called.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Otis Fodder:

Hi Bri. Oh yes, love that series!
Avatar 12:21pm solo mon:

“The black and white chinese guys that eat sticks and leaves” “The pandas?”
Avatar 12:22pm solo mon:

ARB sounds like one of my nightmares !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22pm Otis Fodder:

Mighty Boosh is so good. Need to watch again in full, been over a decade.
Avatar 12:22pm Bri The Beatnik:

I was just listening to it, then I remembered your show was on!
Avatar 12:23pm solo mon:

Hi Bri! Ultra lounge series is solid.
Avatar 12:23pm Bri The Beatnik:

Hey Solo! It really is!
Avatar 12:24pm solo mon:

I loved the boosh, also Noel’s other show, Luxury Comedy.
Avatar 12:25pm solo mon:

Yeah that would be a fun thing to re watch! Putting that in the cue (or queue)!
Avatar 12:26pm Bri The Beatnik:

I haven’t watched it. My friend told me I need to watch it!
Avatar 12:27pm Bri The Beatnik:

This song sounds like a loungy Minha Meninha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm Otis Fodder:

Oh don't know Minha Meninha, but will check out post-show. Thanks Bri!
Avatar 12:29pm Bri The Beatnik:

You’re welcome Otis! It’s by Os Mutantes!

Oh, I know Mutantes. Nice, will dig in!

I love a nipple flower
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Otis Fodder:

We all have very diverse tastes, sound-hoppers here!
Avatar 12:41pm solo mon:

That brazil 77 album has a nipple mountain on the cover, very discrete from what I remember
Avatar 12:42pm solo mon:

Kat what’s your music like?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Otis Fodder:

Polka Rap
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Otis Fodder:

Hi Wendy!
Avatar 12:46pm solo mon:

Oh sorry Brazil 66 album cover, fool on the hill- the back side has a tit mountain. I had it fo years and didn’t see it til I SAW it lol
Avatar 12:47pm solo mon:

Beautiful song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Otis Fodder:

Yes, THAT '66 album, the mountain tit. Noticed it years after as well.
Avatar 12:48pm solo mon:

A tasteful nude!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm Kat in Chicago:

Haha, I don't think I've played any polka rap! It's mostly electronic with a tilt to "underground" techno/house, maybe half dance music, mostly new releases. It's a show that's been on the station for 20 years and has morphed from its origins (which you can infer from the show name). I've had it since 2013. I do sneak in some randomness from time to time if I feel like playing something off-genre and I can make it fit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Kat in Chicago:

My friend has (or had, it's dormant atm) a record label called "Tasteful Nudes." That's a fun T-shirt to wear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Mike Sin:

Dramatic stereo panning on the keys was making me sway for a minute there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Kat in Chicago:

I really like this Kool & The Gang track.

Hey Kat, how are you! Hi Linda, is your mire related to moving?

My aunt tried to make one of those Watermelon Baskets when I was a kid. It didn't work out the way it was supposed to. There was a lot of cursing, tears and very misshapen melon balls.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm Rich in Washington:

It's extra Washingtony. I really wish it would rain soon, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Otis Fodder:

Wish I would have saved more tapes after many moves. Thankfully, used to trade with both Greg and Don in the mid-90s... so they have tapes too!

How's things across the creek for you, solo mon?

Is ok. We are all a little sad at what they r doing to our people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm Rich in Washington:

We're fortunate that we're rather high up, altitude-wise and surrounded by trees, so it's usually a bit cooler here. Downside: we're also surrounded either by rednecks or well-off rural entitled white people.

It's super disheartening. The only small solace is that people outside PDX/PNW are watching it, appalled.

Otis, why are cigarettes legal?! i hate them!
Avatar 1:46pm Sonderangebot:

Because they bring lots of money, that's why, LL!

Why does the anti pot guy sound like he might be related to the cigarette hating guy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm Linda Lee:

oh yes. this we know.

Anti-pot guy needs new friends.

American Beauty is a lovely album.

Me too. Gonna go get the LP now. I can play the Dead, I can play anything.

Hey ho, Otis, diggin your scene, man, just too busy to comment. (This is the closest WFMU gets to 'talk radio' - Otis Fodder taking your calls, discussing the issues!)

Soulmate screening process...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54pm joe:

What is the first question on the Soul Mate screening process? Maybe "have you ever been convicted of a felony".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I judge potential soulmates by their music library.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

hello! Otis! WFMU pals! Sheena's freaks!

hi Granny! :-)

Hey, Granny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Ahoy, Captain Linda Lee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm joe:

@hopey sockmonkey. I had a close friend that I would drive nuts because everytime we went to someone's house for the first time I would ask to look through their records/cassettes. Pissed him off so much :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm Linda Lee:

are we really out there looking for potential soulmate? that might be the basic problem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Linda Lee:

the people i know who actively look never seem to find.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Wow, Somerville was a hot bed of zines and cassette trading back then. Never heard that one before. Cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Rich in Washington:

The soulmate myth sells a lot of grief.

Oh god what a bunch of conformist douche bags.

Uncle Michael's planning a big Dead lovefest this Friday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Mr. Fab's show was so good yesterday. I wonder if any mothership listeners will now be inspired to check out our little corner of FMU?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Otis Fodder:

Yep, bay area/Oakland 1970s memories right here.
Avatar 2:01pm solo mon:

Rich who was the guy on kboo who did the dead shows on sundays, he was so funny and into it, he would isolate guitar solos and discuss them for 20 minutes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Linda Lee:

agree, Rich.
i knew a man whose girlfriend wept & told him his soulmate was someone else. she upset herself so much over this!
Avatar 2:03pm Mr Fab:

Wow thanks, guys! There were plenty of unfamiliar names in the chat last night, so hopefully we made a few converts. Hi, new folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Linda Lee:

sounds like i should check your archive, Mr F!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Rich in Washington: thanks for the warning. I cannot bear a single moment of The Dead at this point in my life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Linda Lee:

bad associations, Granny?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Having grown up in the Bay Area I'm very familiar with the Dead, however I've never owned any of their music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Rich in Washington:

I'm not sure, solo mon. I only know a few of the station's Dead collective. A guy named Phil? I think he's no longer on this side of the veil, as the hippies would say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Linda Lee:

don't think you need it, Hopey! cultural osmosis! :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Kat in Chicago:

Good pick, Otis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Otis Fodder:

I keep American Beauty on the shelf, the one album in my Dad's collection. Also a fan of John Oswald's Dark Star, really good, broken down and ripped apart. Bay area born and raised and totally get it with the Dead, oh yea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Linda Lee: Yes. VERY BAD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Otis Fodder:

Thanks Kat. Apropos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Linda Lee:

shit. i'm so sorry, Granny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Let's just say, i really really tried, and saw the worst of Dead culture.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Linda Lee: and, as always, i appreciate your caring
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Linda Lee:

oh no. that sounds ugly.
Avatar 2:10pm Mr Fab:

worse than their music, ha ha?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Rich in Washington:

I do like some Dead, but really, can't take much of it in one go. And my radio friends and I used to muse about an entire weekly show dedicated to one sole band. I mean, it's one of the things that inspired us to do Throbbing Gristle marathons, several day long marathons of Surrealism and Dada, etc.
RIP weird old KBOO. Those were the days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Mr Fab: yes, even worse than their music—which i REALLY TRIED to appreciate. NO. (Avant Ghetto almost was the closest i got to a true appreciation)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Linda Lee:

i think it's *all* personal associations with the Dead. it's the whole trip. the music is almost incidental.
Avatar 2:13pm Mr Fab:

Speaking of boring hippie nonsense, Spacebrother was showing me an Eagles album he creatively destroyed in his younger years. The entire cover and artwork was vandalized, except for the song that was theme to Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, cuz that's cool. So see, we even like one Eagles song, ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm joe:

I've gotten over my hatred for the Dead, but except for a few tracks I don't make a habit to voluntarily listen to them. That being said I've grown above threatening bodily harm to whom ever put their music on. :) I came to realize that my disgust was more for a sector of their fan base not the band. Plus how could I hate them totally that's how the neighborhood acid supply got replenished when they came to town.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

See? Even the Eagles have a redeeming factor!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Actually, I do own that tribute album Deadicated because Elvis Costello is on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Linda Lee:

exactly my point! it's not about the music.
must say i like the Dead better than i like the Eagles. associations!
Avatar 2:15pm Mr Fab:

Rich: many stations have all Beatles shows.

SiriusXM has channels dedicated to one artist, but then they cheat by adding all these other artists in between.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Otis Fodder:

Dead over Eagles here as well personally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

joe: yeah, they sure get the best acid. See? A redeeming factor!!! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Linda Lee:

thank you, Otis. at least there *are* associations possible. the Eagles are what?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Dead Eagles is best!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Oh and that album Spacebrother got creative with was probably One of These Nights.
Avatar 2:17pm Mr Fab:

Interesting , they are not billed as "Charles Wright and the Watts 103."But that def sounded like him singing..?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm joe:

@Rich In Washington want to hear something similar to that complete minucia of analysis to the point of surrelism. Check out Phil Schaaps Birdflight on WKCR
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm joe:

@MR Fab I was so pissed at SiriusXM they just did a temporery Beastie Boys Station. I thought oh man this going to be great they are going to play all this stuff that the Beasties' love and sampled. Nope just Fight For your Right 734 times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Linda Lee:

that's lame.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm joe:

@Granny Spicy Tune Glad I can help I'm trying to find the positives now a days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Linda Lee:

is this our technocratic future musically? shoot me now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Linda Lee:

why is this lead vocal so funny? i'm not even stoned!
Avatar 2:24pm Mr Fab:

Yep, similarly disappointed by the Beasties channel. The Beastie even refused to perform “Fight For Your Right” after their first tour. Tho one of the “influences” portions featured the Slits “Typical Girls” so hopefully that grabbed some new ears.
Avatar 2:26pm solo mon:

Man I remember when jerry died, hippie girls were throwing themselves in front of cars on haight street. Talk about associations! I’ve been all over the place w the dead stuff, lost a close friend due to the scene (they died of drug related causes) I was a baby when my parents would take me to shows though and it sparked my interest in creative quirky people. Same w Oregon country fair. Young me got to see some THINGS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Linda Lee:

i think you were a lucky child, solo mon. exposed to a different culture from what appeared on tv.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Otis Fodder:

Sad to hear about the Beasties station. The BB book though, whoa, so good. Want to try some of the recipies they add in.
Avatar 2:29pm solo mon:

Thanks Linda Lee- come as no surprise but we also had no TV growing up. Probably why I am obsessed w pop culture now, though.
Avatar 2:30pm solo mon:

Scarlett Pussy?!
Avatar 2:30pm solo mon:

I think I went to school w her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Rich in Washington:

I remember hearing about Garcia dying on some talk radio show while driving and then minutes later seeing a young hippie girl hitchhiking on an onramp and crying her eyes out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Linda Lee:

good. i really don't think we should be exposed to tv until we're matured. it's too predatory a medium!

then again, if that's the worst he's done, he's a gem.

Avatar 2:35pm solo mon:

Kicker- it was teena Marie’s childs party!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm joe:

When the Black Album came out I was working at a mall record store. Warner Bros must have really suckered our buyer that it was going to be this thing EVERYONE was waiting for, because of what it was. We got at least 60 copies in store. I think we sold three. Most folks shopping at Sears really didn't care. :)
Avatar 2:35pm Mr Fab:

a children’s birthday party at Rick James’ house - What could go wrong?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm Linda Lee:

i can imagine it as purposefully polite & classy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm joe:

Also my jerk of a manager tried to convince some kid to buy it by telling him it was Prince covering Metallica and they had to use different song titles so as not to get sued.
Avatar 2:37pm Mr Fab:

I would really prefer Rick’s outfit on a woman.
