Good evening Dave and all the listeners.

Hello, South American friends.
  Mon. 3/12/12 9:30pm Tom L:

Narada Michael Walden + Tony Levin = sickest rhythm section.
  Mon. 3/12/12 9:30pm mrmucho:

yeah the drums are great on this
  Mon. 3/12/12 9:31pm PB:

Seems like I'm the odd man out here but, to me, that Fripp track was "prog rock" at its worst.
Avatar Mon. 3/12/12 9:31pm Dave M:

The song with Peter Hammill singing on it is even more twisted. It was hard to choose .

Oooh this is one of my favorite songs from Lamb

hello everyone, glad to be listening.
  Mon. 3/12/12 9:35pm Electric Cowbell:

killer! thanks for the Genesis. is that Phil Collins on drums? what a show that must've been.
Avatar Mon. 3/12/12 9:35pm Dave M:

Caught that bleep perfectly I must say. "I'm not full of..."
Avatar Mon. 3/12/12 9:35pm Dave M:

Yes indeedy. Phil Collins.
  Mon. 3/12/12 9:38pm G:

Back in NYC, typical weird proggy time sig (7/8 or 7/4)
  Mon. 3/12/12 9:39pm G:

Genesis was a little rough on some songs, during the Lamb tour. Boots of many shows are available.
Avatar Mon. 3/12/12 9:40pm Dave M:

Yeah, 7/4. And maybe some 7/8.
  Mon. 3/12/12 9:40pm damien:

i just find it funny that i have asked Dan Bodah to play "Being It" a few times. And he's never played it!
Avatar Mon. 3/12/12 9:41pm Dave M:

I'm sure he has his reasons.

Thanks, Spike.

man this is groovy
  Mon. 3/12/12 9:53pm Electric Cowbell:

another funky time signature. Free Design. some studio pro no doubt.
Avatar Mon. 3/12/12 9:54pm Dave M:

For sure. That's a really really difficult song. No way were they playing it themselves.
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:00pm miss cheri:

i'm enjoying your show dave,,,btw are you a fan of mila kunis like i am?

Good to hear you back on the air, Dave!
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:05pm Music Fan:

Name some of Mila Kunis's albums, to remind me.
Avatar Mon. 3/12/12 10:06pm Dave M:

Thanks, Ike. Sorry, cheri, I know nothing of Mila Kunis.

well keep on rocking dave,see you again soon,,

k, see ya.
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:12pm PB:

Getting back to "prog rock" bands, my recollection is that all of the better known 70s prog rock bands were British (Yes, ELP, Strawbs, Genesis, King Crimson, etc). I can't recall a single well-known American prog rock band (but then again it is not exactly my favorite genre).
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:13pm b:

Ah, memories of Jade Warrior...yes, that's a very good thing....
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:13pm Parq:

You are most welcome, Dave. Your choices are choice, as usual. I did miss hearing "The True Wheel", but then, hearing Circle's delirious version of "Here Come The Warm Jets" a couple of times lately has taken some of the sting out of that. Just gonna sit back and let your selections wash over me.
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:14pm G:

There was the Canadian band Rush, and there werre some US prog imitators -- Clay Pigeon is a big Starcastle fan, the best known prog-imitating US band in the mid 70s.
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:19pm Spike in SF:

Regarding American Prog: I was talking to one of my younger metalhead friends the other day, and he was raving about how he'd just discovered Kansas, of all things. And ya know, some of the EARLY Kansas wasn't half-bad American prog, in a way. They were a guilty pleasure for me even back then, but something of a pleasure nonetheless.
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:21pm b:

Spike, Kansas definitely had their moments before they got arena disease. As for American prog rock bands, I'd argue that some of Santana's early records would certainly fit, in its own multiracial/multiethnic way.
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:23pm PB:

Early Kansas, who knew. I'll take your word for it but I am remain highly skeptical.
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:24pm G:

I was gonna mention Kansas, but many may think them too poppy for true prog.

Ironically, newer prog revival ,usic in the last 20 years has many major American exponents near the top of the lists of people who care about these things. Spock's Beard is an LA band.
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:25pm G.:

Dave, do you remember ever playing a track from a band from Argentina?
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:25pm PB:

I always thought I knew a lot about rock/pop music but G totally puts me to shame.
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:26pm 12539:

Dave, Pitchfork says, "...at the behest of...Michael Gira, the band added "/Family" to its name when it followed (sic) signed to his Young God Records imprint."
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:27pm PB:

Why did most bands named after a place suck (Boston, Kansas, Chicago, UK, etc.)?
Avatar Mon. 3/12/12 10:31pm Dave M:

I'm sure I've played bands from Argentina, but you've gotta give me a little more to go on...
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:32pm Destroit:

Don't forget the ultimate suck...Alabama.
Avatar Mon. 3/12/12 10:34pm Dave M:

I would claim that Chicago was pretty good up through maybe their second LP.
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:35pm Destroit:

Oh, and great show Dave. Sorry to pollute it with an Alabama reference ;)
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:36pm G.:

I was thinking of bands like La Máquina de Hacer Pájaros, Invisible, stuff from the 70s. It's rather late here and I gotta go. Great show, thank you!
Avatar Mon. 3/12/12 10:37pm Dave M:

@Destroit: It's OK. You can say whatever you want here. Almost.
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:38pm PB:

Gotta check out, thanks Dave. Fun show.
  Mon. 3/12/12 10:38pm Barry:

Damn -- I'm tuning in late to learn I missed the Prog segment of the show. Today ScottW played all 4 sides of Tales From Topographical Oceans -- simultaneously! With the marathon out of the way, the DJs are free to show their true prog roots.
Avatar Mon. 3/12/12 11:01pm Dave M:

Thanks, Dexter. Greetings.

Prog roots? Me?

Are you trying to say this isn't my natural hair color?
  Mon. 3/12/12 11:34pm b:

Dave, I dug through your archives hoping to find more Lothar. Had to go back to Dec 07 and my sound file converter claims there's no audio in that file. *sigh* And *I* have a turntable but no vinyl frm them! It's an imperfect universe. And thanks for the Amon Duul.
  Mon. 3/12/12 11:35pm ken from seattle:

wow, two of my favorites in the same set.... i've been a lothar fan forever (have both the lps on vinyl, and 1st on cd) and saw v-effect open for frith in the early 80's in b'more.
  Mon. 3/12/12 11:35pm Droll:

Why so defensive?! Prog is one of the more durable genres of rock, like power pop, and FMU has multiple power pop shows. Prog is not just for guys in trench coats tapping their foot in 13/8 time. There's also 7/8, 3/4, and 9/8.
  Mon. 3/12/12 11:38pm b:

I'm pondering whether my trench coat should be insulted...
  Mon. 3/12/12 11:45pm Catty:

@Droll: Not to mention 5/4 and 11/8.
  Mon. 3/12/12 11:47pm Droll:

I love prog, really! (I just wish it weren't a black hole for humor)
  Mon. 3/12/12 11:56pm 12539:

Thanks for so nicely filling in, Dave.
Avatar Mon. 3/12/12 11:57pm Dave M:

My pleasure. Thanks for listening.
  Thu. 3/15/12 5:08pm Listener Bob (2907):

Listening on the archives -- good to hear you back on the air!
  Thu. 4/12/12 2:40pm Listener Gregory:

Very much enjoyed the show (on the archives). Just a correction to your announcement of the Cannonball Adderley tune. He plays alto sax on the cut; Hank Jones is the pianist.
