Hell-o, Herk!
Avatar 3:01pm Mr Fab:

I was a teenaged Lovecraft fan. Part of that still resides in my doomed soul so looking forward to this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm ARB:

Hi BC!
Avatar 3:04pm BC Sterrett:

Hello Everyone :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm ARB:

I've always been a huge fan of Nick Blinko who is a huge fan of Lovecraft so that's how I tend to get my Howard Philips fill, now I'm here, yay!
Avatar 3:06pm Sonderangebot:

As a graduate of the Miskatonic University, I like this stuff! Hi BC & all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm ARB:

We are all in Arkham
Avatar 3:07pm BC Sterrett:

Hi Arb, Sonder & Mr. Fab :) Playing several things at once.
Avatar 3:07pm Mr Fab:

I recognized his voice! Roddy McDowall reading Lovecraft, wow, who knew? So random. it's like, i dunno, Bob Hope reads the Marquis de Sade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm ARB:

Tried to herd some macabre and lachrymose types over from the mothership
Avatar 3:13pm BC Sterrett:

Thanks ARB, thank you for being here :)
Avatar 3:14pm Mr Fab:

hi ARB, I was going back and forth from Otis to you. Def a good crowd over there. Hopefully we made some converts. i was handing out pamphlets, and promising them a hot meal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm ARB:

I saw that Mr Fab, thanks! Lure them in with the tantalizing smell of virgin flesh
Avatar 3:15pm Mr Fab:

Technicolor Paradise, compiled by WFMU's own DJ Little Danny.
Avatar 3:18pm BC Sterrett:

Oh wow, that's so awesome Fab! I love those records
Avatar 3:20pm BC Sterrett:

Lovecraft really was a master with the beauty of the English language
Avatar 3:21pm Sonderangebot:

Debussy and rotting flesh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Otis:

Listenin' and detoxin' and lovecraftian'
Avatar 3:21pm BC Sterrett:

In the background, Rosemary Brown channels new compositions by dead composers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Otis:

Yes, that Technicolor box by Numero, had a pal who pre-ordered it with me local here, one of those releases I was on the edge of my window for.
Avatar 3:23pm Mr Fab:

Definitely BC, Lovecraft was a master stylist. His plots were simple enough to describe in one sentence. It was all about the dense atmosphere conjured up by his outlandish writing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm Otis:

Roddy reads Lovecraft?.... what's next, Andy Rooney reads Anais Nin. Oh please.
Avatar 3:26pm Mr Fab:

i suggested "Bob Hope reads the Marquis de Sade." Imagine finding THAT in a thrift store.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Otis:

Wait, it wasn't one of the on the road movies? On the Road with the Marquis!
Avatar 3:27pm Mr Fab:

Didn't Jayne Mansfield do a Shakespeare album or sumthin?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm ARB:

I made a pilgrimage to his grave in Providence "I Am Providence" and I'm not even a real fan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Otis:

I could see that. I'd like Claudine Longet reads War & Peace.
Avatar 3:28pm Mr Fab:

Well, it's probably among the cooler things to do in RI.
Avatar 3:30pm Mr Fab:

I have that Sammy album, really great Mel Torme and Jerry Lewis singing "Lulu's Back in Town."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm ARB:

Very true, I also got hired to deliver a singing telegram (my only one ever) while there, one of the more bizzarb things I've done
Avatar 3:31pm Mr Fab:

Ha, what did you sing? how's your singing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Otis:

Oh nice, Angie Tillett from Death by Chocolate in Lollipop Train.
Avatar 3:31pm BC Sterrett:

I'd love to hear that telegram!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm ARB:

It was a telegram to celebrate someone getting the gender on their drivers license successfully changed to reflect their gender identity and the persons sweetheart hired me and friends to sing "what I like about you" by The Romantics with the lyrics changed to be about "The F on your license" and all the things F stood for. I can not sing. But I can hustle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm ARB:

We added in some "Mr Sandman" to make the poetry fit, it was a real abortion
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm ARB:

With a tuba accompaniment
Avatar 3:39pm BC Sterrett:

TUBA always makes things better! (I think)
Avatar 3:40pm Mr Fab:

They do! Well, i would have been thrilled, but what was her response? Did you see a big question mark over her head?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm ARB:

It certainly makes them bigger, which is better
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm ARB:

???Completely Confounded????
Avatar 3:41pm BC Sterrett:

Val has stepped in to help with the playlist which makes it easier to communicate on here. I don't know how Otis does it almost seemlessly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Otis:

I am confounded on how I keep up sometimes, massive juggle with vinyl and playlist and chat but fun and mistakes happen a lot, but rarely can anybody tell, like today put on the wrong record at one point and just said, meh, I'll go check the mail, hit the bathroom, check on the cats and let the sound of rain play. Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Otis:

I had the wrong side on one cut today but just powered down the turntable and flipped it over. Ooooh Judson!!! I still have a print of your Judson Fountain Puppet Show BC, the woodcut print... we need to get you on the mic talking about your projects, like the Judson one!
Avatar 3:45pm Mr Fab:

for FOUR HOURS Otis does it. i suspect there is actually three of you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm ARB:

Four For Fodder is fun to say
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Otis:

There is, I train my 2 cats well. Shhhhhh. But Sonderangebot will help me on Friday as I'll be on 5 turntables and she will also help me for the 24 hours of Xanadu playlisting when I need a power nap. Huge love to our better-halfs who help live!
Avatar 3:47pm Mr Fab:

a Judson Fountain puppet show?!?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Otis:

Four For Fodder, I'm coining that. Will credit ya ARB.
Avatar 3:47pm BC Sterrett:

I heard when you played the wrong side, it was fun how you corrected it :)
Avatar 3:48pm BC Sterrett:

I only created 3 actual Judson Puppet shows, but did many many others under the name "The Judson Fountain Puppet Show."
Avatar 3:52pm Mr Fab:

Dang, well you have got to come out to California if we ever do a live variety show. (As we were planning on doing this month DAMN COVIDS). Would love to see a live puppet "drammer."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm ARB:

Every time I tune in to this show there's a new 45 I have to add to my want list!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm ARB:

Gosh I can't believe it would be TIki Oasis already, it always seemed so far away
Avatar 3:55pm BC Sterrett:

I always hear records I want to add to my want list from your show Arb. I'm always blown away by your selections.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm ARB:

This is Villain Gold already!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm ARB:

Aww, thank you!
Avatar 3:56pm BC Sterrett:

First heard about Count Morbida flexi from Otis Fodder's 365 Days Project :)
Avatar 3:58pm Mr Fab:

Master of Terror-monies ha ha. I used to love Dynamite Magazine, from whence this flexi comes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm ARB:

Morsel of a mortal!
Avatar 3:59pm BC Sterrett:

Dynamite Magazine had one of the best title fonts in history. My older brother used to subscribe :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Otis:

I had a subscription to Dynamite as a kid in the 70s. Oh yea!
Avatar 4:01pm BC Sterrett:

I think my copy of this flexi has a skip at the end. ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Otis:

Dynamite and Scholastic publications shaped me for sure. I'd pick up Mad, Cracked, 16 and Creem too, ride that schwinn bike to the pharmacy with friends. Dynamite was the best and yes, that font is still amazing. I want a t-shirt now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Otis:

Thanks BC. See ya!
Avatar 4:03pm BC Sterrett:

Thanks everyone! See you next time. Good Midnight to You :)
Avatar 4:03pm Mr Fab:

Fare thee well Herk!
