  Thu. 4/5/12 3:02pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

oooooh nice start!
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:03pm ?:

hey, where's my Giant Man!?! Just kidding, nice to hear you, Dave.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:03pm Cheri Pi:

Nice one.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:05pm Dave M:

Afternoon, everyone.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:05pm Dave M:

No, it would have been wrong for me to play "Giant Man."
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:07pm stefica:

Hi Dave!
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:08pm BSI:

Who has carrot cake?
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:08pm Dave M:

Hey, Stefica.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:09pm Dave M:

I wish I had carrot cake.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:10pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

wishing isn't going to make it happen...get out there and MAKE A CARROT CAKE, Dave.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:10pm Cheri Pi:

As a segue between the last show, Voivod has cited Van der Graaf Generator as a key influence.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:11pm Cheri Pi:

Carrot cake sounds nice. I bet it would taste even better.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:11pm BSI:

H TO HE... brilliant album overall.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:14pm dinatekno:

I was a shaken (not stirred) at the lack of Giant Man. But then, the music stirred me back to reality. Beautiful stuff! Thanks Dave. This cubicle slave is grateful.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:16pm Dave M:

Thanks, dina. Fabio kind of owns "Giant Man." I couldn't play it.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:19pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I never knew this was Hammill on here--always thought it was all Daryl Hall
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:19pm Old Mother Hell:

That was first time I ever heard Van Der Graaf Generator.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:21pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

ooh I was making crackly bubblies like this with my Roland last night!
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:22pm Dave M:

Daryl Hall's on that album, but that ain't him.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:22pm tinaun:

this song is making me hungry
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:22pm Ike:

Hey hey hey hey hey. I like the crackly.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:23pm Dave M:

The Daryl Hall LP that Fripp produced is very good (Sacred Songs).
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:23pm Dave M:

3:30 more of the crackly coming up.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:24pm Jack:

Dave? Great to hear you this afternoon. I love your funny graphs on the FMU Blog-I used to do the same kind of stuff for laffs when I was learning Lotus, etc. - But I'm kind of amazed at how serious and violent people get at some of your joke charts.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:25pm Dave M:

Hi Jack. Yeah, those comments only egg me on to do even sillier charts.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:28pm Terrance:

Hey Dave... Los Angeles is tuned in!
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:37pm Dave M:

Is that *the* Terrance? Good to have you here, Terry.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:40pm Dave M:

(...meaning the Terrance from LA that I know. All Terrances are welcome.)
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:40pm Terrance:

It is *the* me, indeed. Just went to the site and saw that you were on.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:42pm Dave M:

Well, thanks for joining the fun from lovely L.A.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:46pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this is a good farfisa...
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:47pm Dave M:

We don't just play any old Farfisa here.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:48pm BSI:

Yay! Crazy uncle Irmin!
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:49pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I'd never heard of that particular model but my buddy offered to let me play one tomorrow night. Very timely, Dave M!
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:51pm Dave M:

Glad to hear it, DCE. In related news, I didn't get the Mellotron I requested as a birthday present.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:52pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

aww...but they're bad pets, I hear.
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:54pm BSI:

they get a bit loopy in their old age... but then, don't we all?
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 3:57pm Dave M:

I think they're loopy even when they're new. Supposedly the lighting in rock arenas threw them out of tune, so you can imagine...
  Thu. 4/5/12 3:58pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

John Elliot just got one...hasn't had a good thing to say about it yet...
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 4:04pm Dave M:

Well nothing sounds like them. But they seem to be trouble 24/7.
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:08pm paula pc:

this robert wyatt version is so sweet! thank you for playing!!
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:08pm maestroso:

Wow, best version of this song ever!
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 4:09pm Dave M:

Yeah, it's good. There's a video on YouTube of him doing it on Top of the Tops!
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:09pm tinaun:

If i learned only one thing from WFMU, it's how to appreciate a good (or bad) cover.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 4:10pm Dave M:

With Fred Frith playing (miming) guitar, btw. Can you believe that?
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:12pm paula pc:

that guitar sound certainly is Frithian!
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:12pm Cecile:

Tin Huey also were inspired by Wyatt's version to do their own very good cover. of "Believer"
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 4:13pm Dave M:

Bingo: Liner notes say Frith on guitar, Nick Mason (Pink Floyd) on drums.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 4:13pm Dave M:

But seeing Fred Frith on Top of the Tops? How great is that?
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:13pm BSI:

Suddenly reminded of Cassiber for some reason?
Brilliant show, Dave M...
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 4:15pm Dave M:

Aw, thanks. It's possible this band collaborated with Cassiber at some point. Can't recall.
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:15pm Cecile:

  Thu. 4/5/12 4:16pm Cecile:

I like the idea of Scott Walker...
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:17pm βrian in Madison:

Recall Scott Walker!
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:18pm Carmichael:

Ya Baby! Scott Walker!! Oh, and hi Dave. Good to see you on a good lookin' Wednesday.
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:19pm BSI:

My brain makes these weird associations based on very little knowledge. I heard a couple of Cassiber releases 15+ years ago & not since then. Yet that name & sound just popped up with that track.... weird...
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:19pm Cecile:

This is one of my favorite Beefheart songs.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 4:20pm Dave M:

  Thu. 4/5/12 4:20pm Cecile:

I actually quoted lines from this song for a long ago piece on Beefheart ("I think of all those people that write on my bones...")
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:20pm paula pc:

@ Cecile -- YOU SAID IT! it's like a lightning bolt every time
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:21pm Carmichael:

No wait, it's Thursday, right?? I haven't had any beer in nearly 2 days. Any Beefheart is good beefheart. Pass the beef heart, please.
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:22pm Mr Donut:

Bad Vuggum!
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:23pm listener james from westwood:

that got a laugh out of me, βrian.
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:29pm sua:

deejay talks like woody allen
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 4:29pm Dave M:

Thanks for that. You know, Jewish, Brooklyn...
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:30pm deejay:

You really think so?
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 4:31pm Dave M:

You should hear me when I'm not on the radio. Then it's more like Joe Pesci.
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:35pm Steve:

And what time sugniture would you say this is being played in?
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:36pm Apiary:

I hear captain bee farts.
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:36pm tinaun:

absolutely love these squeeks, great piece
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 4:37pm Dave M:

@Steve: You, know, I wasn't listening closely, so I couldn't say.
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:43pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Good to hear you Dave. As a lifelong Brooklynite, I decare that you DON'T sound like Mr. Konigsberg! Nor is there any Marty Markowitz in your voice!
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:44pm Jim:

wow I left my player on..came home to this..loving it!!
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:45pm Carmichael:

EFT obviously stands for Bukelman, Davidovsky and Bymel.
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:45pm tinaun:

I think EFT is the album name, not the artist?
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:47pm Mike East:

client on the phone just asked, "what is that guitar sound?"
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:48pm Droll:

Mike East, WIN!
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:49pm tinaun:

Aha, found it. EFT is name of the band (Electric Free Trio)

more info here: http://oferbymel.blogspot.com/2012/01/httpswww.html#comment-form
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:51pm Mike East:

I said, "I don't know what it is, but I don't think its a guitar." Cool show, Dave M.
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:51pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

now I'm home and will do situps to the program. This music will work for that purpose.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 4:52pm Dave M:

Aha. So I (and music director Brian Turner) are off the hook with that band name.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 4:52pm Dave M:

Thanks, Mike.
  Thu. 4/5/12 4:54pm BSI:

classic stuff. My favorite C+C time period.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 4:55pm Dave M:

Yeah, my favorite record of theirs, definitely.
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:01pm BSI:

and holy crap, that Information piece could have (should have?) gone on for another hour. .. ok, i shut up now.
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:07pm paula pc:

@ Mike East -- didya watch Xanadu...
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:11pm Mike East:

not yet - I think I'm gonna save it for Saturday, early morning.
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:16pm BSI:

XANADU! Best film of the past six million years!
...ok, i shut up now.
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:19pm paula pc:

@ BSI - agreed!! it transcends time and space, as we well know...
@ Mike East - that's a good time to watch it. as close to dawn as possible
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:25pm Mike East:

will likely be around 7am. Check in on Bob Brainen's playlist!
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:26pm BSI:

Gotta split, but this has been a brilliant show, DM. Hitting many high points for me, from the electronics to the Roy Harper. Cheers.
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:27pm Mike East:

...if I'm able to get to my computer, that is. From the sound of it, my mind may be blown...
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 5:28pm Dave M:

Thanks, BSI. You're too kind.
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:28pm david:

this whole sun ra album is great 1966 i think
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 5:28pm Dave M:

"Recorded May 1966." You win!
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:31pm paula pc:

we all win because you are playing it, Dave M! grazie a mille...
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:32pm david:

amen dave is doing fabio's slot justice...
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 5:32pm Dave M:

De rien (sorry--French, not Italian).
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:34pm david:

in the language of Saturn please ;)
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:36pm Carmichael:

Does Xanadu star Mila Kunis?? Just kidding, wanted to use up the single reference allowed per show.

This Sun Ra is excellent for fine-tuning contract law and thinking about beer. I'm multi-tasking.
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:37pm stefica:

love the sun ra!
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:41pm david:

julie andrews' first credited studio session i believe
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:43pm Jim:

Don't let Clay Pigeon bully you at the end of your shift, Mr. Mandl.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 5:47pm Dave M:

@david: Her first session, really? That's a great fact, thanks.
@Jim: Nah, Fabio's the only one he really abuses around here.
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:51pm Carmichael:

Thanks for the big show, Dave. I'll listen for you next week.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 5:52pm Dave M:

Thanks. Next week I'll be filling in for Diane, noon-3.
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:55pm Jack:

Thanks again (as always) Dave! See you next Thursday.
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:56pm George of Troy:

Enjoyed the set very much, Dave. Nice to keep running into your fill-ins.
  Thu. 4/5/12 5:57pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Gosh...thought Boinng Party was coming on again for a second.
Avatar Thu. 4/5/12 5:58pm Dave M:
