You see a blanket on the ground. It's your favorite color, smooth and soft. You can sit on it, or lie on it. It's a flying blanket, and you are the pilot. You are in control. You can fly anywhere you wish, just by thinking about it. You are the pilot.

Do I hear throat singing? I think I do! Yaaayyyyyy!
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:07pm Tom L:

Hi Dan, Merry Christmas and good listening!
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:07pm Karen:

Albert! Thanks Dan!
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:22pm listener mark:

Hells Bells by a string quartet! Coming to a grocery store near you.
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:23pm ec:

So far So fun I love covers
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:24pm Dan B:

Hi all, happy holidays! Saw dozens of abandoned cars in Flatbush Brooklyn on the way to the only working train 20 blocks from home this afternoon. Fun! @Mark, I want to shop in that grocery....
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:26pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Dan, I commend you on showing up after what sounds like a blecchy commute.
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:29pm Richard:

Nice selection Dan. Greetings from Venezuela.
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:37pm slugluv1313:

Slits' version of "Heard it Through the Grapevine" . . . Teena Marie's version of Rose Royce's "Wishing on a Star" . . . latter not all that different from original -- just thinking of all those we lost this year :(
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:38pm Gunther:

Loving the show! Cover suggestion: Songs from a Random House's version of Donna Summer's 'I Feel Love.' SoFARH recreates the all-electronic track with ukuleles, chord organ, viola, contrabass, and a drum. It's on their 2nd album, 'gListen.'
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:43pm Richard:

My Cover suggestion: Shine on you (crazy diablo) by Los Crema Paraiso http://www.myspace.com/loscremaparaiso
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:44pm maria sputnik:

who is the hardest working dj in a blizzard???
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:49pm heath:

otis readings cover of satisfaction is pretty good and if youre sick of snow come to Chicago we haven't had much (knock on wood)
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:49pm dave:

yow, i'd forgotten how much i love FSA. thanks for reminding me!
  Mon. 12/27/10 9:57pm Richard:

Other Cover suggestion: If you Go Away by Julie Christmas. I think that the original song is from france.
  Mon. 12/27/10 10:04pm heath:

Oh radical departures from originals, i see hmmm
  Mon. 12/27/10 10:04pm dave:

The hoof-n-mouth almost seems like cheating, but it's chock full of transformative covers. hotrod's gutting cover of "over" or belinda's berserk "institutionalized", frex.
  Mon. 12/27/10 10:06pm dave:

oh, and of course there's the entire Langley Schools Music Project album.
  Mon. 12/27/10 10:09pm jose in seattle:

yehhh, Jump by Aztec C., that was the cover I was thinking of!!!
  Mon. 12/27/10 10:12pm Steve:

If you want to really see a pack of wusses. come on down here to So. Florid-duh. It was in the 60s today and people were sreaming at me "where's your sweatshirt? Don't you have a coat? Aren't you cold?" Yeesh...can you guys send some of that snow down here? I want to see the disaster that'd cause. -s
  Mon. 12/27/10 10:13pm slugluv1313:

not to mention Leonard Nimoy's *stellar* rendition of "Proud Mary," Telly Sevalis' (sp.?) *poignant* version of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling," William Shatner's *epic* take on "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," etc. etc. etc. -- all that "Atrocious/Incorrect Music" stuff (BIG UPS to Irwin, for being such a "good" influence)
  Mon. 12/27/10 10:13pm Steve:

...and before I forget, great set Dan! Love this version of "Jump." -s
  Mon. 12/27/10 10:14pm dave:

  Mon. 12/27/10 10:16pm heath:

How about queens we are the champions as gregorian chant?
  Mon. 12/27/10 10:25pm Jenn:

Anything off Outlandos D' Americas (esp 5. La Cama Es Muy Grande Sin Ti (This Bed's Too Big Without You)) or Every Band has a Shoenen Knife that Loves Them
  Mon. 12/27/10 10:25pm heath:

Wasnt american woman originally dine by the canadians the guess who?
  Mon. 12/27/10 10:47pm Rick:

The original 7" of I Feel Love wasmy first record I bought as a kid!
  Mon. 12/27/10 10:47pm dave:

gunther's right. this version of "i feel love" completely rewlz.
  Mon. 12/27/10 10:50pm Canada Calling:

Yes, the Guess Who were claimed by the Canadians at the time that American Woman hit the charts. At least, that's my take. However, I'm an American sleeper agent, passing as a Canadian, so I'm inherently untrustworthy. (Icht bin ein New Englander.)
  Mon. 12/27/10 11:02pm Dan B:

Hey all, sorry abt checking in so little -- hectic night, but a total blast. Thanks for the correction re: the Guess Who -- duh me! Lots of great suggestions, trying to get to a few of them. Maybe we need to do this again -- I've got a stack here I'll never get near half-way through! Keep 'em coming....
  Mon. 12/27/10 11:09pm Gunther:

Dan, thanks for playing the "I Feel Love" cover. This Vanilla Fudge version of "Some Velvet Morning" is the HEAVIEST ever, man.
  Mon. 12/27/10 11:09pm Rick:

Captain Beefheart did almost no covers, but I'm fond of his version of J.J. Cale's Same Old Blues. It's not considered a career high-point for Beefheart, but I'm throwing it out there anyway.
  Mon. 12/27/10 11:16pm Norman Bloom:

Nice to be able to hear underground radio at its best.I live up here in Toronto.We have alot of radio stations but they really don't play anything like what you are playing. Even our college stations don't have this kind of programming like yours. I have listened to your station before.....
  Mon. 12/27/10 11:16pm Canada Calling:

Hi Dan - "Truckin'" by the Pop-O-Pies comes to my song-plugging mind, but I'm not sure it's in the same league as these fantastic #1 hits!
  Mon. 12/27/10 11:22pm ?:

This is a great set! I keep thinking of "Dancing UIn The Streets" by Fred Frith
  Mon. 12/27/10 11:28pm dave:

woody's version of "smells like teen spirit" really stretches the idea of a cover in an interesting way, since it's a filtered version of the original recording. i was actually wondering earlier if the slowed-down justin bieber song qualify as a cover.
  Mon. 12/27/10 11:31pm Dan B:

@Dave - yeah, I think the Beiber version *does* count as a cover, as do a lot of the DJ remix versions that manipulate originals, or the mash-ups that mix them with other tunes, etc. Woody's little 7" is a great realization of a certain way of reconfiguring the media world that permeates our lives into something new by twisting it around on itself...certainly can be done without a live band!
  Mon. 12/27/10 11:32pm Dan B:

@Norman Bloom, thanks for checking in Norman -- hey, I came of age listening to Brave New Waves and David Wisdom's Night Waves program on CBC out of Montreal -- which reached me in my little Northern NY village where we couldn't get other connections to the outside world of outside music back before the internet...
  Mon. 12/27/10 11:36pm dave:

That view of covers -- as appropriation and reconfiguration -- makes this show a very nice followup to DJ Rupture's discussion with Marcus Boon.
  Mon. 12/27/10 11:38pm C>B:

  Mon. 12/27/10 11:56pm Rick:

Great show, Dan! Wishing you a warm and safe trip home.
