"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.)

Been listening since 6:30...nice sounds.
Where is everybody?

Good Morning! Everyone must be at the market preparing for the "PARALYZING STORM!" That Prudence Teacup was beautiful.

Char, just heard from my daughter in upper Dutchess County, and they're without electricity (and they're in a unit where the heat and stove are electric). Makes one realize that this cold-ass rain could be a lot worse.

Fine show as usual, John. Hope the WMFU xmitter holds up today.

I was just contemplating purchasing this Jack Rose album. I think this tune just sealed the deal.

Nice to see Bob Frankford on WFMU! The album listing should be Just A Little Bit, tho', same as the Jaki Jakizawa track. Great set, regardless.
