Thanks to Charlie Lewis for this great Koota Tanimura CD.

Hola, Senor M!
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 12:14pm tonyc:

@ Tom Tiddler, RE Doll Parts cassette: Neither -- 'twas given to me by a friend of the band five or so years ago. Good cassette-only releases are very tough to find in thrift stores -- though it has happened.
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:15pm Tom Tiddler:

must say my favourite ever cassette was Cressida - Asylum that I found in Blackpool UK in about 1987. I played it to death and reminded me of Love's Forever Changes!
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:17pm kat330:

Heard these first tracks in the kitchen. The Chopstick Sisters reminded me of the film we watched last night: The Warped Ones by Kurahara. Wild and weird one.

Will be playing (lots) more Chopstick Sisters today....
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:27pm kat330:

As for Finnish pronunciation rules: In general, every multi-syllable word will have the hard accent on the first syllable. I've learned the weekdays, hello/goodbye (moi) and thank you (kiitos). Oh, and sweet dreams (kauniitta unia)

yes Buddy Holly did
Lynryd Skynrd
Glenn Miller (?)

Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens along with Buddy.

Ricky Nelson. John Denver, too, right?
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:34pm Tom Tiddler:

was all of Skynrd or just some of the band that got killed?
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 12:34pm tonyc:

So you haven't truly made it in rock and roll until you die in a plane crash?
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:35pm kat330:

@tonyc: Well, at least you haven't had the time to crash and burn figuratively in your career.
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:36pm Tom Tiddler:

well drug overdose (or its equalavent) such as Jimi, Janis, Jim Morrison etc is more rock and roll than airplane crash ?
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:37pm kat330:

Where are all the usual playlist research minions today? I'm not very good in that role. Or maybe, I don't *want* to be good in that role. ;)

Tom, are you doing some googling on these rocked planes? Any female rockers die in plane crashes?
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:41pm Tom Tiddler:

Queen of the night - was there an early ELO track - Queen of the something?

Thanks, Tom! I believe Croce died in a road accident, albeit a very bizarre one. Or am I misremembering?
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:46pm Ike:

Good show! I was in Finland for a couple of days in 1995. I loved it. It was gorgeous, clean, and friendly.

Hey, NGH, good luck on that proposal!
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:47pm kat330:

@Brian: I dunno if any rock stars died while gardening, but I'll guarantee some have died because of ho's.
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:48pm kat330:

Hey, Ike! Yes, all that, plus very efficient and innovative in their households. I learned several ideas for a home, if I ever own one.

Brian Jones
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:52pm Ricardo Montalban:

was reading Croce's wikipedia page just now and see that he was briefly a DJ, like so many musicians. I would love to see a comprehensive list of famous people that used to be DJs.
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:53pm kat330:

Ricardo, looks like you've found yourself a new project. :)
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:54pm Ricardo Montalban:

Yeah. I've been wanting to do that for a long time, but I'm kinda sucky at research.
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:56pm kat330:

OK, so it wasn't Croce on the road. Hmmm, who was it that was killed by something falling from truck in front that came through the windshield? Ever since I heard that story, I'm always nervous being behind a badly secured truckload (which so many are around the Louisville area).
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:59pm Michael:

Harry Chapin died on the LIE - maybe that's what you're thinking of.
  Tue. 8/21/12 12:59pm Ricardo Montalban:

@kat330: yeah.. That sounds familiar. Now it's nagging at me too.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:00pm kat330:

Chapin, that's it.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:00pm kat330:

Thanks, Michael!
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:01pm northguineahills:

Thanks. I have a potential month-long travelling work opportunity that may start this weekend, so I want to make sure I've dotted all of my "i"s and crossed my "t"s in case I run into someone who can help make it work.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:03pm Brian in UK:

I was referencing The Tap.
Sad to say, Clarence White was killed by a drunk driver as he loaded gear into the truck after a gig.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:03pm kat330:

Traveling north? That sounds super, Mr. Hills. Keeping my fingers crossed for you. Oh, jddwjgnfm jeezizkwmt -- can't type that way. My legs are crossed for you.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:04pm MrFab:

I'l help you get started Rich:
- Lou Reed had a free-jazz show on Syracuse University's station. They threw him off.
- BB King got his name from his Memphis show: Blues Boy King
- Henry Rollins is currently in KCRW in LA, and Steve "Pistols" Jones is on KROQ, both refugees from the late Indie 103 (which also featured a Rob Zombie show)
- Kurtis Blow had on an old-school rap show

  Tue. 8/21/12 1:06pm Brian in UK:

How odd trouble was playing a bell ringing track earlier make me think of the word tintinnabulation & Poe's poem The Bells.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:06pm northguineahills:

Actually, I'll be in IA, ND, and MN. Haven't got the official itinerary. A friend might have to fire someone and would need a replacement asap. It's not geography work, but it's $.

And, of course, as far as musician DJs, don't forget the world's greatest musician: John Tesh.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:08pm kat330:

@ngh: Haven't seen him on the boards recently, but ndbob might be a useful and fun meet-up if the job comes through.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:09pm Ricardo Montalban:

Mr. Fab! That's great!
Jello Biafra was a college DJ in Colorado
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:11pm MrFab:

Wasn't Sly Stone a jock before his Family Stone days?
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:12pm Ricardo Montalban:

I remember in Michael Weldon's (also a DJ!) wonderful magazine Psychotronic Video, he'd publish lists like musicians that were boxers before becoming musicians, etc.
I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't have a DJ list.
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 1:12pm tonyc:

Oh, I guess Alice Cooper doesn't qualify, as he became a DJ way after he was already famous -- like Bob Dylan. You're not interested in that arc, Rich?
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:12pm Ricardo Montalban:

Yeah, Sly was.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:14pm Ricardo Montalban:

I'm only interested in people who were radio DJs before they were famous. Not sure why.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:14pm kat330:

I performed radio theater with a Boston DJ (also together in the Boston Shakespeare Co.) who wound up married to Judith Light. Guess being a DJ leads to all sorts of arts careers.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:16pm Ricardo Montalban:

I have a friend from Boston who's really into radio theatre. He isn't famous, but should be. Or at least infamous.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:16pm Michael:

I wasn't here yet but Peter Wolf was a DJ in Boston before Geils hit.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:17pm Ricardo Montalban:

Yes, that's right, he was!
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:17pm kat330:

Still doing it? Robert (Bob) Desiderio was the DJ / actor I'm talking about -- his "Hour of the Wolf" on WCOZ back in '76-'77.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:18pm kat330:

[I meant your friend, Rich, not Peter Wolf]
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:20pm Ricardo Montalban:

I should as my friend. I'll bet he heard of him. He was a college DJ in Boston (not sure what school/station), he's also got a ton of reviews on AMG, back when they used to pay people to write reviews. His name is Rolf Sembrebon.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:21pm Ricardo Montalban:

WOAH! This Hellers is sure weird for the time/label. TOo cool!
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:22pm kat330:

@ Ricardo M, Re Hellers: Bob Moog is on ... moog.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:23pm MrFab:

That Hellers album's great - they were actually an adverstising agency, not a "band."
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:23pm northguineahills:

What Ricardo said.

I had no idea, Tony.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:23pm Ricardo Montalban:

The voice on this sounds almost like Frank Oz.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:23pm kat330:

@Rich: No, what I meant was is your friend still doing radio theater. (Maybe I need to uncross my legs. ;)
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:25pm Ricardo Montalban:

@Kat: Yes, he is. Really pretty crazy stuff. Usually very topical, quickly written and recorded and very, extremely scatological.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:28pm kat330:

We did radio plays on Bob's show. Sartre's "No Exit" and Bradbury's "Dandelion Wine" come first to mind. I Loved Boston. Such a wonderful place for the arts, and probably remains so.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:30pm northguineahills:

Any unit that makes sound, is a band to me. Two of my friends that made analogue Techno 5+ years ago use always use the term band when they played. I suppose you can various definitions of constitutes a band.

  Tue. 8/21/12 1:44pm northguineahills:

Thanks, Brian in UK. That was a delayed response.

I had to quit my subscription to NatGeo as it was cutting into all of my other reading, and the gf doesn't like the space the magazines take.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:45pm Tom Tiddler:

intro is 6 million dollar man theme?
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:46pm Ike:

Heh, this is not one of the BBC's more distinguished moments. This Doctor Who spin-off's pilot was pretty bad and it never got off the ground.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:46pm kat330:

@ngh: We only resumed it this past year. What I always do with our mags is periodically take them all over to a nursing home -- I'm the opposite of packrat.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:46pm listener james from westwood:

@kat330: best part of my last full-time job was the person who used to bring the nat geo maps to work for everyone to enjoy.

This is sort of ballsy for 80s the BRO in the 80s, although it's not to different from the Dr. Who of the era.
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 1:47pm tonyc:

Don't think so -- the whole thing is the theme for the Brit show "K-9 & Co." ... a Doctor Who spin-off, I believe.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:47pm northguineahills:

ahh, it was the K-9 theme. Gots it.

  Tue. 8/21/12 1:51pm Tom Tiddler:

never saw K9, although Tom Baker was my favourite Dr Who and the pseudo gothic Pyramids of Mars and Talons of Phang Rock probably my favourite episodes
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:51pm Ike:

Some of the Doctor Who soundtrack music of that early 80s era is really interesting and full of awesome synth sounds. I recommend the "Meglos" and "Full Circle" soundtracks if you can find them. Some similarities to the K-9 & Co. theme, but more ethereal, and obviously without the insane K-9 vocals!
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:52pm kat330:

We, of course, got the glow-in-the-dark NJ map in our mouse swag last December. Must have been a cartographer in a past life.

@ Michael Pollak: Tako (sometime Taco) was an amazing '80s band from Japan. Titles are only given in Japanese -- hence "track 8"
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:55pm Ike:

LOL Tom, that's "Horror of Fang Rock"... a great episode indeed! I love how they seemingly made an evil shapeshifting alien out of a huge blob of plastic wrap with green light shining on it, and it actually came out looking pretty damn creepy. Great use of an extremely limited budget.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:57pm Tom Tiddler:

was that the potato head alien, its so long since I have seen them?
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:57pm northguineahills:

I saw my first episode of Dr. Who last Christmas at my parents' house, since they have full cable. I've been watching on and off ever since. However, I've heard most of the various Dr. Who themes since its inception.
  Tue. 8/21/12 1:58pm Ike:

@Tony, you might like some of the early Tom Baker episodes of the 70s -- try "Ark in Space" and witness the BEST use of green bubble wrap EVER. Sci-fi on ~£4000 per 25-minute episode! But the soundtrack music didn't get really interesting (to me) until the 80s, when the show's writing slowly got increasingly nihilistic, cynical, and sometimes way too self-referential.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:00pm kat330:

I only saw the Tom Baker Dr. Who. In that aforementioned Boston period AAMOF. On WGBH public station. Without cable, haven't seen any of the successors. Yet.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:00pm Tom Tiddler:

Ike,
suppose you saw the creepy Blake's Seven series written by Who writer Derence Dicks?
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 2:01pm tonyc:

@ Ike: I have 5 or 6 Doctor Who episodes lying around here on VHS, picked up in thrift stores -- some are Tom Baker-era. Will watch 'em soon...
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:01pm kat330:

Warped Ones describe this trio indeed.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:02pm Ike:

@Tom, yeah, Blake's 7 is interesting. And no, the potato-headed warriors are the Sontarans. The current Dr. Who revival featured a hilarious Sontaran nurse in 2011. "You'll be up and around in no time. And perhaps one day you and I shall meet on the field of battle and I will destroy you for the glory of the Sontaran Empire."
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:03pm kat330:

@Tom: We bought the Blake's Seven series, watched and liked it. Also bought Sapphire and Steel, but still not finished with that. I'm not much of a fan of it.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:04pm Ike:

I just saw the first Sapphire and Steel six-part serial -- it's so creepy! What an awesomely weird show! I liked it, but the end of the serial didn't live up to the beginning.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:06pm kat330:

@Ike: Have to say, S&S has gotta be the most thrifty set and costume budget of about any program. Very slow pace. Sometimes I'm OK with that, but, well, it just never gripped me.
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 2:08pm tonyc:

This Mick Ness track sort of reminds me of Amos -- of Amos & Sara and the Homosexuals -- a good thing fer sure....
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:08pm Tom Tiddler:

Ike,
must say the S&S episodes with the airman with a burnt face, and the one with the guy with no face are very disturbing indeed!
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:08pm kat330:

@Tonyc: Gee, I'd like to give Mr. Drummer Some another perfect segue for promoting his show tonight. Any clue as to his theme this time? :)
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 2:10pm tonyc:

Lima beans, perhaps? Or maybe Mormon surfer dudes -- I'm not sure.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:12pm Tom Tiddler:

Ike,
which episode of Dr Who is it that the Doctor picks up up his assistant on a wild plant growing planet.
Also I always thought the Pyramids of Mars was ripped from Bram Stoker's Jewel of the Seven Stars, saying that though I also think Stargate was a rip off of Pyramids of Mars!
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:12pm kat330:

Take-out Tacos or Heller's Bells maybe?
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 2:12pm tonyc:

He hasn't announced his theme yet, as far as I know....
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:14pm Ricardo Montalban:

I'm trying to talk my wife into letting me paint the shed my well is in into a trompe l'oeil Tardis. It's just the right proportion. It's also visible from the road, so maybe that's her beef with it.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:14pm kat330:

Stargate and Dune and Star Wars all borrowed heavily from the source: Edgar Rice Burroughs' "John Carter" (which we recently saw).
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:16pm Ike:

@tom, maybe you mean "Face of Evil," where he meets Leela, the awesome warrior woman? Best companion ever. And yes, "Pyramids of Mars" is one of the best, with obvious homages.

I was so impressed that much of the current revival gets the spirit of the show correct. Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant. and Matt Smith were/are great Doctors. No more green bubble wrap though.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:16pm northguineahills:

That would be hilarious, Ricardo!
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:17pm kat330:

@Rich: It sounds really cool, but if it might bring unwanted gawkers, then I understand your wife's POV.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:18pm conrad:

Tony, I'm beggin' ya man, please post these Damian & The Criterion tracks on the FMU blog pleez! This stuff is NUTS.
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 2:18pm tonyc:

I kind of like the John Carter novels, even if they are ridiculous. Burroughs was really good at action scenes -- not always easy in print.
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 2:19pm tonyc:

Hey Conrad! Maybe I will, indeed, after my holiday from blogging is over....
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:19pm northguineahills:

I kind of like John Carter novels as well, oddly enough.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:22pm kat330:

@tonyc: Philo's the ERB fan. But whenever I asked if a device or alien in the film was direct from the books, and he indicated they were, then I noticed how much our current SF creators owe to his incredible imagination.
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 2:33pm tonyc:

Sten Hanson recorded a great electronic album called "The John Carter Song Book," the cover of which looks like really lurid fantasy art.
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 2:35pm tonyc:

Can't find a good pic of it on-line....

There are mega-distorted reed instruments buried in this track, I believe....
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 2:42pm tonyc:

And trombone?
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:43pm northguineahills:

I enjoy Sten Hanson, album could be a hoot.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:46pm Tom Tiddler:

thanks Ike will look it up,
Tony - have you read Michael Moorcock Elric series, wow they have some of the best action I have ever read in print!
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 2:47pm tonyc:

@ Tom Tiddler: Nope, haven't read Moorcock. I only know of him via the Hawkwind connection.
Avatar Tue. 8/21/12 2:47pm tonyc:

Los Paranos, on now, later evolved into Klimperei.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:48pm Tom Tiddler:

Ike,
as far as assitants go, my all time favourite has to be the Brigadier with Jon Pertwee's early 70s Doctor. So British, elitist, a complete snob!
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:50pm kat330:

Just noticed hanging in our office is probably my favorite NatGeo map. It's of Mars, all the craters and named landmarks.

Ah, just looked and found Doug's theme for tonight's GTDS: 80th birthday bash for Melvin Van Peebles. Gee, thought perhaps Doug would do a sequel to last week's Lovers of Arabia about apartment hunting on the Arabian Peninsula, calling it Low Rents of Arabia.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:53pm Tom Tiddler:

that its from me,
reminds me of horror movies with radio djs such as;-
Play misty for me
The Fog

  Tue. 8/21/12 2:55pm kat330:

Anyone see the Korean monster film "The Host"? Quite liked that.

will be a-hunting for the archive of this show as soon as I can grab it to hear that first half! thanks, tony!!

By the by, the mp3 archive of today's show will go up later than usual post-show -- not until tonight or possibly tomorrow.
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:56pm Tom Tiddler:

Kat - thats a brilliant funny horror movie!

Paljon kiitoksia (Finnish "thank you very much"), Mr. Tonyc, for some ear-blowing sounds today!
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:57pm listener james from westwood:

then i'll call it my pre-scenario listen tomorrow. it's win-win!
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:58pm Tom Tiddler:

yeh Tony got to have the mp3 so I can copy it, cut it and put the obscure stuff on you tube!
  Tue. 8/21/12 2:59pm northguineahills:

Great set, as per usual, Tony.

Really dig this Barton Smith, and it's on Folkways to boot.
