Be an all vinyl show, can you make the records go "wiggiddy wiggiddy" Meghan?
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:24am Chuck:

Ah, vinyl. Rice Crispies on the airwaves...
Avatar    Thu. 5/24/12 6:26am Meghan:

I could..... but these are all MY vinyl so far..... and I am NOT ruining MY 4 AD stuff!
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:27am Chuck:

Some how I knew that would be your response, Meghan. hehe....
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:27am fred von helsing:

late to the party, d'oh
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:29am mister Gee, does london:

vinyl sounds great on the stream

wrong speed on this record though!

bless - more 4ad please
Avatar    Thu. 5/24/12 6:30am Meghan:

Mister Gee...... I actually just noticed that as well.... hehe... hence the change.... it'll be back. Kinda liked it though....
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:30am Dave B:

If That Mortal Coil was at the wrong speed, it sounded pretty good and gloomy
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:30am fred von helsing:

BR - colored vinyl? Can you make sure to note the color in the playlist? :-D
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:30am Ken From Hyde Park:

Trying to come up with a witty comment, but I just don't have enough wits at this hour. I'm enjoying the show, so there's that.
Avatar    Thu. 5/24/12 6:31am Meghan:

ha! Thanks Ken!
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:32am fred von helsing:

When's the last time someone hauled an 8-track player into the studio to play some horrible old vestige of the Seventies ?
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:34am Dave B:

Voodoo Chile on 8-Track was always fun. Right in the middle ... fade out, *CLICK* (track change) fade up, continue.
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:37am mister Gee, does london:

funny meghan! elisabeth fraser is a goddess to me! met her many times.

i keep forgetting that it's early for u!!
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:37am Chuck:

That would just annoy me, Dave...
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:37am fred von helsing:

@daveB Yup and when you changed tracks you rarely clicked into the start of a song, it was always into a riff or something, an audio roulette wheel, much fun with beer (no microbrews yet) and chips (a paper bag of course)
Avatar    Thu. 5/24/12 6:38am Meghan:

Love Elizabeth Fraser. Wish she had her voice in more things.
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:41am Bas, NL:

If you ever get the chance to visit a Le Mystère Des Voix Bulgares concert.. fantastic experience!! Highly recommended.
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:42am fred von helsing:

What is the story on 4AD? They sure do have some great talent and excellent web productions.
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:44am fred von helsing:

I'm tickled PINK !
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:46am Chuck:

Guess you have to get much more methodical with your techique when doing vinyl, Meg...
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:47am Chuck:

Yay, Chameleons!
Avatar    Thu. 5/24/12 6:52am Meghan:

Thanks Bas..... I will have to check it out if I ever see one around here.....

Fred- 4 AD (80's especially)= amazing
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:52am fred von helsing:

I am proud to say that I have two milk cartons from the mid-70s - the ones that fit LPs PERFICKLY!! So many were getting stolen that they had to change the size. This was in upstate NY - Potsdam. It later turned out Abbie Hoffman was hiding out up there at the same time.
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:55am Marc in Liverpool:

The hospital finally has wifi!
  Thu. 5/24/12 6:56am Chuck:

This is new?! Could have come out in the early 80s easily...

Ha! Lyn at WVKR uses this song as her theme song!
Avatar    Thu. 5/24/12 7:00am Meghan:

Was Lyn from Boston?
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:01am Chuck:

Nope, Colorado actually. Been a guest DJ with her many times...
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:05am Marshall McLuhan (sadly deceased):

I wholeheartedly approve of this journey into the exploration of the sociological significance of this historic medium, still clung to by a devoted band of followers. I only wish that your merry listenership was gathered around a jukebox in order to more properly savor the experience (and come to fisticuffs over choices).
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:11am Davice:

Put a quarter in big boy
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:11am Dave B:

needs more jazz flute
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:12am fred von helsing:

gotta run / bummer !
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:19am Marc in Liverpool:

I just returned from the OFFF festival in Barcelona. If the Primavera was closer I could've done both. Sona too.

I just saved a lot on my car insurance by switching into reverse and driving away from the accident

This is exactly what I want to hear first thing in the AM! Amazing, thanks! Good morning all

Good Morning Max!
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:30am Caryn:

Hello all! Once again, my lousy web connection means I'm late for the show...
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:31am Chuck:

Hey there, Caryn!
Avatar    Thu. 5/24/12 7:31am Meghan:

stupid web connection...... come on Finland! Help Caryn out!
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:33am Chuck:

Oh, major bummer! The CaptainCrawl blog search site has been shut down! Ugh!
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:33am Caryn:

A belated happy birthday to you, Chuck!

@Meghan: it's not so much Finland (which has excellent internet connectivity in general), but the "living in the sticks" aspect of it. And the fact that the browser update I did a few weeks ago suddenly f-ed up my connection for some reason...
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:34am mohawkdave!:

Hellllloooooooooooo all!
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:34am Chuck:

Thank you, Caryn!

2012 MERMAID PARADE - SATURDAY, JUNE 23RD, 2PM! 30TH ANNIVERSARY!
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:39am mohawkdave!:

MERMAID PARADE! I was just thinking about that THIS MORNING on my commute!! I need to climb into the attic and see if I have an "appropriate" outfit.
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:42am Dave B:

I'm trying to convince my brother to enter his car in the parade. Looks just like this:

Me, I was thinking the Noonan look...

  Thu. 5/24/12 7:45am mohawkdave!:

600! Holy crap; that's Awesome. I will like to have it.
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:46am mohawkdave!:

The noonan look would look great in that car!
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:47am Davice:

Due to all the safety regulations car companies no longer make those neat little cars . . . yet they still make motorcycles which are safer?
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:48am Dave B:

we shall see. For me for now, I must depart and head to work early. Meghan - reach out if you're up for drinking this weekend.
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:49am Berg:

yesss NOOOISEEE!! we wants noise!
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:50am mohawkdave!:

@Dave B: if???
  Thu. 5/24/12 7:52am Dave B:

  Thu. 5/24/12 8:11am Berg:

Curses dammit!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:12am mohawkdave!:

Meghan's out cause she waved and jeff p. didn't say wave!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:12am other david:

Fer feck sake!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:13am Caryn:

Well, jeff didn't say "Simon says", so Meghan can wave all she wants as long as she raised her hands like jeff asked.

Just getting in...definitely will have to revisit this show for that opening 4AD set. Hi Meghan!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:19am Caryn:

Hey, it's jeff's call whether she's in or not. I'm just waiting for him to make his judgment.
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:19am Cheri Pi:

It's rowdy on these airwaves!!

  Thu. 5/24/12 8:31am jeff p:

Always loved this Selecter song
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:32am mohawkdave!:

Being jeff p.'s muscle.......I think maybe jeff p. should Not play show and tell.......

I concur; dancingly!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:32am other david:

*skanks*
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:33am mohawkdave!:

Ahhhhhhh Now I REALLY AM FEELING MERMAID PARADE! Thanks for that coney island freak show snippet!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:33am pierre:

this song's appropriate
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:34am fishmonkeystew:

Providence is wicked cool.
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:35am Nathan:

I raise my middle finger!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:35am Chuck:

Alas, the ska set didn't make the clouds go away. I want SUN!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:35am jeff p:

In honor of your computer issues AND swearing, you should play "Back That Ass Up" by Juvenile.
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:36am duke:

I swear at my computer. Can we have both?
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:36am Nathan:

Ken will probably just smoke a fat zoot and throw darts at a board to figure out the schedule.
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:36am other david:

I don't know how Ken stays (somewhat) sane trying to work out the schedule, I couldn't do it.
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:37am mohawkdave!:

Computers; Lots of Fun!
Swearing: Could be Lots of Punk Fun
All I know, is when I'm using the computer there's alot of swearing! Perhaps a "shared show" Computer Song, then Swearing Song. That would be appropriate!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:38am mohawkdave!:

Ohhhhh, apparently Duke and I are on the same page!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:40am Caryn:

I just spent the morning swearing at my computer!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:40am Cheri Pi:

my sweetheart LH :)
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:41am Chuck:

"The Down Side of Computer Camp" by Barcelona is the only song that immediately comes to mind...
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:43am jeff p:

heh. scratchy records. Yet another reason why I've abandoned them.
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:44am Chuck:

Ah, you remind me that I still haven't digitized my copy of Squeeze's "Argy Bargy" LP. Awesome album!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:45am Parq:

What Chuck said -- what a drag Argy's not on CD. I had to settle for a Squeeze Greatest Hits disc.
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:47am Chuck:

Yeah, Parq! Why isn't it on CD? Fortunately, my vinyl is still quite playable...
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:47am pierre:

@Caryn : the same here !

I know i have 50 Gb on my hardrive, but when i search only 35 appears to be taken, and it shows me only 3 left/ so i have around 10Gb out in the nowhere of my computer… weird and frustrating.
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:49am jeff p:

wikipedia says it's available on cd https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argybargy
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:50am PKNY:

ONE STEP BEYOOOOOOOOOONNNNDDD!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:50am jeff p:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=argbargy
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:51am Chuck:

I should record/digitize "East Side Story" as long as I'm at it...
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:51am mohawkdave!:

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..........scratchy records..................... [ meanwhile interupted with work stuff...] love those scratchy records!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:52am Cheri Pi:

Meghan we have most of the same albums!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:52am Chuck:

Ah, thanks, Jeff P! Last time I looked (which was quite a while ago) it wasn't available...
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:55am jeff p:

OK, have a good weekend, everyone!
  Thu. 5/24/12 8:55am fred von helsing:
