"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Have been stuck working late, and have found your selections very conducive to thoughtful work.

gregory in Toronto:
you're playing perfect music for what we're doing right now - lying in bed and watching the full lunar eclipse

The ZZ Top tune was simply beautiful. Thanks for the reminder that band was sweet and spicy.

How nice to turn the radio on the other night and hear Richard Youngs.
One of my favorites.
I'm bitting your style and playing the track on my show today.
