Listener comments!

  Tue. 9/22/09 2:05am Steve:

Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream...
Bill Mac and the Starship Zzzzzzero Hour have taken to the skies
  Tue. 9/22/09 2:10am Bill Mac:

Destination Unknown
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:15am Toronto Jim:

That "Breuker" thing kicks arse.
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:16am Joshua K:

I'm gonna eat soup.
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:17am Toronto Jim:

The farty thing not so much...
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:18am Bill Mac:

Thanks Jim.... for the even handed critique... one outta two ain't too bad... wish I had some soup...
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:20am Toronto Jim:

I've always hated Zappa (and still do) -- except for "Hot Rats."
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:22am Toronto Jim:

Soup is good food! Might I recommend a corn chowder? (And... why not try some Ritz crackers?)
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:25am Bill Mac:

Too much of his stuff sounds either too glossy or too intentionally weird... corn chowder! hot damn!
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:26am Toronto Jim:

Intentionally weird?! Say YEAH.
(The best thing about always having hated Zappa is that he's dead, and I'm still alive)
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:30am Toronto Jim:

Now, Beefheart is a different kettle of trout altogether! Never minded him at all. Decent poet (in the "strange-vibe" genre that Zappa never could master without talking about skid-marks)
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:32am Toronto Jim:

Like, how much can one talk about human shit (something we all know about but which was, to him, revolutionary)
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:34am Toronto Jim:

Up your poop-chute?! Come on -- Grow up!
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:34am bill:

bill: most of trout mask was recorded outside on a reel to reel revox--zappa litterally had the magic band in the woods of laural canyon
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:34am Toronto Jim:

Don't feel self-conscious: "Hot Rats" WAS good. Can't help it.
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:36am Toronto Jim:

I know I'm far away, but does Laurel Canyon REALLY have any woods? Or were they just hanging out back of Mama Cass's house?
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:38am bill:

that part after hair pie one where the people come up to the band and ask what they were playing, that litterally happened--and zappa just kept it on the album
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:38am jamesie:

"Take that rubbish off!" the privately educated schoolgirls screamed at me as I returned to put back on Lick my Decals off. I had the right idea in 1971. I just liked his music, no trend-following. The only thing I confess to is enjoying the reaction I caused playing his stuff. Zappa definitely dear to my heart and I learnt his albums off bu heart - but it took a while for Don to be appreciated by my friends. Amazing they were both buddies at school as well.
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:39am bill:

jim: you're right, i might be wrong about the Laural Canyon part but i know i am right about the rest
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:40am Toronto Jim:

re: jamesie

What the fuck?...
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:41am Toronto Jim:

Cool, Bill. Perhaps it was Big Sur -- Kerouac's nightmare landscape...
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:41am Bill Mac:

I'm just gonna stand over here....
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:44am bill:

no. zappa was working near LA in 1969
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:46am Toronto Jim:

Bill, you've succeeded in relaxing my sanguine mood. This stuff ain't so bad... if it didn't remind me of my tortured Catholic upbringing...
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:49am Toronto Jim:

Some Spiritualized would be a good segue here, if I were the DJ...
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:53am Bill Mac:

Let's try some....
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:55am Toronto Jim:

Can't believe you, Bill! JUST the Spiritualized song I would've chosen! You're wonderful! (Thank you deeply!)
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:56am Toronto Jim:

Man! Luvvv that dulcimer!
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:57am Bill Mac:

Little miracle my friend.... I know of Spiritualized, and I must get further acquainted with their catalog..
  Tue. 9/22/09 3:59am Toronto Jim:

Got the whole catalogue myself, and can't get enough of it.
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:03am Steve:

After a Buddy Guy concert I ran into a fellow who had worked with Zappa and now tours at times as one of the Grandmothers, a reunion band.

He mentioned that part of the magic of the Laurel Canyon days was the amazing amount of inter-change amongst artists of the days in the area. A constant flux of people moving from band to band to see what worked best.

Zappa had some great ideas, for his time. It got a bit tiresome going into the late 70's but for 60's who would you rather be listening to in the rock genre?
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:05am Toronto Jim:

Steve: Cool story, but "whom would I rather be listening to in the rock genre?" LOTS of other people!

(No offence)
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:07am bill:

the thing about 70s and 80s zappa is, the more time went on the better his guitar work got.
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:07am Steve:

I'm ready .. mid to late 60's
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:08am Toronto Jim:

For one, I couldn't live on a desert island without the LP "Forever Changes" by Love. After you listen to that one a few times, Zappa is trite.
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:12am Steve:

Guitar work, like a King once said "too many notes." I liked to drama with occasional music of Zappa's early work. Very few musicians can make a statement by themselves and too much was missing when Zappa guitarized himself.
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:12am bill:

i have BEST BAND YOU NEVER HEARD IN YOUR LIFE fron the 88 tour and his playing is incredable, dense , abstract and extremely textured--makes the 60s stuff seem flat by compairison
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:14am Toronto Jim:

Mid to late 60s: Thirteenth Floor Elevators! Fuck, even the Association! Ummm.... The Guess Who (Canada's own)!
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:16am Toronto Jim:

Wait a sec! Did you, Bill, put on Guess Who BEFORE I mentioned them? Or after?
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:17am bill:

ever hear "friends of mine" from Wheatfilled Soul? Totally jammed out wha wha track. Guess who are EXTTREMELY underrated
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:18am Steve:

Bill has a secret button to que a Guess Who song at a moments notice
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:18am Toronto Jim:

Holy FEKK! You're playing my playlist, Bill! Don't you guys ever do any of your own work?!

God, I love "Slip Inside This House"!!
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:19am Paul Newtape:

cold sun dark shadows next? thx for the great show.
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:21am Toronto Jim:

Steve, you gotta love that secret Guess Who button!

Underrated? YEAH. I maintain that Burton Cummings has the second best voice in the history of Rock 'n' Roll (after Van Morrison). If you listen to Zeppelin IV, you will know that Robert Plant channelled Cummings!
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:21am Bill Mac:

I've loved the Guess Who since I started listening to music and have recently discovered sleeper albums like Artificial Paradise. I'm also a bigger fan of Kurt Winter than Randy Bachman. WAAAAAY underrated and often compared to lesser bands who are considered superior....

to answer your question, I was pulling the Guess Who before you mentioned them
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:22am Bill Mac:

Not tonight... you're just handing me shit...
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:24am Toronto Jim:

BILL: Wow! Freaky pull! Uncanny timing!

BTW, never thought of Kurt Winter that way...

Plant DID teach himself to sing Zeppelin IV from Cummings! I insist!
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:29am Bill Mac:

Steve's right! I've been obsessed lately. I DID however play a shortie today. I've also been wondering of late who sounded like Robert Plant first. Check out American Woman for Plant like walijng from Cummings. Bachman wrote some great tunes, but loses a few point for BTO (also a guilty pleasure for a small number of tunes...)
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:30am Toronto Jim:

Hey, BTO ain't bad for a Mormon who's never had a drink in his life, eh?
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:32am Toronto Jim:

If you were to play "Share the Land" by Guess Who, you'd hear, at the end, the source of Robert Plant's hijacked cool. Trust me.
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:34am Toronto Jim:

Funny how this Cheeseslider sounds quitre similar to some of Zappa's Hot Rats shit, eh?
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:35am Bill Mac:

You don't hafta tell me... the out chorus on "Share the Land" is my favorite vocal ever.... it's perfect
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:36am Toronto Jim:

Is it really your favourite vocal ever?! Cool -- that's saying sumpin'...
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:37am Bill Mac:

Speaking of which, I just read a part of Zappa's latest bio and he was doing a bit of hanging around with the Chieftains of all people. Apparently he had "The Green Fields of America" played at his memorial service.
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:39am Toronto Jim:

Hey, Bill: Would you be averse to sharing out your home address? I'd love to get some of my Joisey homies to burgle your place an' rip off your record collection! (I'd tell 'em to let you keep your Zappa)
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:41am Bill Mac:

Oddly enough, I lost much of my record collection in a fire 4 years ago. It's all up here.... I'm pointing to my head....
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:42am Toronto Jim:

Chieftains, eh? Class stuff. Love 'em.
If you can get your hands on a rare-ish vinyl called "The Chieftains In China," you wouldn't be disappointed. The Chinese and the Irish classical vibe meld together like butter! It'll knock socks off of people.
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:44am Toronto Jim:

Lost your LPs on a fire, eh? Shame.

(Do you ever imagine how they melted in the heat? Not trying to bring you down -- just wondering...)
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:47am Toronto Jim:

Listen, Bill Mac: LOVED your show tonight (running out of time now?), and thank you SO much for digging my choices and playing them. I'll burn you a good Spiritualized mix and send it Jersey-way, care of YOU!
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:50am Bill Mac:

I wish it was that quick... it was actually water damage that got most of them... spiritualized? bring it on!
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:52am Toronto Jim:

Will do, Bill -- I promise (and a Canadian's promise is good as gold). Gotta sleep now -- will dig on your closing minutes in silence. G'night to you, and to all the listeners...
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:54am Bill Mac:

Thanks Jim..... goodnight to you!!!!
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:54am Toronto Jim:

P.S. I still hate most of Zappa's oeuvre. No offence.
  Tue. 9/22/09 4:57am Bill Mac:

It's OK Jim..... really
  Tue. 9/22/09 5:05am Toronto Jim:

Don't worry about no comments -- I'm still listening... and liking it very much. Now I snore soon.
  Tue. 9/22/09 5:10am Steve:

I guess I wouldn't want to request Zombie Woof off Over-Nite Sensation. Big bad guitar solo though...
  Tue. 9/22/09 5:15am Toronto Jim:

Aw, god, Bill. How dare you play this one -- R.I.P Mary Travers!
But, honestly, did it have to be "This Land"? Why not their classic "If I Had My Way"? Now there's a song!
  Tue. 9/22/09 5:15am Saul Oldtape:

wow. havent hear this track in so long. great. thx again
  Tue. 9/22/09 5:16am Bill Mac:

Not to mention Friendly Little Finger from Zoot Allures...
  Tue. 9/22/09 5:17am Larry(Ireland):

Hi Bill. It's been a while. You haven't lost your touch though.
  Tue. 9/22/09 5:19am Bill Mac:

Hey Larry!
Yeah.... still working but I'm still just doing fillins here.... it's good to be here!
  Tue. 9/22/09 5:21am Larry:

Yeah, I know. This is the first fill in I've been able to catch live. Thanks for the email updates too. Good to hear you again
  Tue. 9/22/09 5:30am Bill Mac:

everyone has a Peter Paul & Mary track that makes em weepy....RIP Jim Carroll.... not as bright as PP&M but needed to hear it...
  Tue. 9/22/09 5:31am Bill Mac:

Good to hear from you Larry!!!
  Tue. 9/22/09 5:40am Ken From Hyde Park:

I'm also surprised that few DJs played Jim Carroll. Thanks for playing one from him.
  Tue. 9/22/09 5:42am Bill Mac:

My sentiments exactly!!!!
  Tue. 9/22/09 5:57am mb:

Sweet sweet music. Thanks Bill.
