Old school surface noise!

Surface Noisers, dig the noise!

Hi Joe! 12539! PSS (again)!
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:05pm Joe McG:

Hey, Matt and everybody! Sorry about the one-channel sound of this record...damn Turntable 3! We'll solve it....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/9/13 8:05pm pacific standard simon:

Crank up the wringer on that old washing machine!

Hi 'gain, Matt.

Watch out for those Red-Hot Red-Head Mammas!

The beer run was a success, by the way -- summer ale!
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:09pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, Jack Kaufman's taking innuendo to new depths! (pun be pardoned.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/9/13 8:12pm pacific standard simon:

Margaret'll take 'em to the door, when Jack comes innuendo.
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:16pm Matt from Springfield:

@PSS: Ha!

Heavily noise interference on this one, but the content shines through strong!

"The Sweetheart of Sigma(ther) Chi(uys)"!
  Tue. 7/9/13 8:19pm Chop Scott:

JOE! I love the surface noise--CHEERS!!!
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:20pm Joe McG:

Hey, Chop Scott! Yes, we're listening to surface noise with a little bit of music tonight!
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Enchanting Slavic strings!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/9/13 8:20pm pacific standard simon:

Russian music played by actual political refugees (possibly)!
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:22pm Joe McG:

@pss: Possibly!

Wow!!! it's you Joe?!? I never listen at this hour and suddenly I recognise the voice.

Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:23pm Joe McG:

Hey, Fernando! Yes, I'm digging into my 78 collection for tonight's show.
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Now would be a good time to turn up the speakers and microwave my leftovers for dinner (coincidentally - or IS IT?! - "gyro pizza"!!!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/9/13 8:26pm pacific standard simon:

I think my 78 collection only ever amounted to one Spike Jones record that someone dropped a 6-pack of Anchor Steam Beer on. :(
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:27pm Joe McG:

@pss: Ha ha!
  Tue. 7/9/13 8:28pm Sue:

Joe!! How's it going? Awesome to see you playing all these 78's again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/9/13 8:29pm pacific standard simon:

It was shellacked!
  Tue. 7/9/13 8:30pm patro:

When I was a kid we had a bunch of Spike Jones 78's. My father and grandfather even saw them in concert once. I wonder where those records are now
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:30pm Joe McG:

Hey Sue! Glad you're liking 'em!
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:30pm Matt from Springfield:

@PSS: If it had to go, it would be fitting if they dropped the 6 pack of beer on the Spike Jones record--AS it was playing! Spike would appreciate the craziness of that sound over his sounds, wherever he is!
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:35pm Joe McG:

@patro: Spike Jones records are fortunately pretty easy to find if you ever have the desire to hear them again!
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Love how this yodel is jumping all around with the distorted old record! :)
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:38pm Joe McG:

@Matt: I tried this one out in another studio earlier today and it played fine, Matt. Plagued by technical difficulties this evening, I'm afraid. It did sound pretty cool, though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/9/13 8:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...presumably not Bill Cox from Band of Gypsys....
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:39pm Joe McG:

@RR: Maybe his granddad!

i know what a red headed mamma can do.
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:40pm Joe McG:

@glenn: Lucky man!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/9/13 8:41pm pacific standard simon:

You could make a marathon premium of loop track 78 surface noise -- don't know how popular it would be, though.
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:44pm Joe McG:

@pss: More popular than any premium ever.
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:45pm I X Key!:

! I'd pledge for that (o:
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:46pm Matt from Springfield:

@PSS: Actually, I think a killer premium idea would be a collection of DJ "loops"--the exact segments a bunch of FMU DJs use on repeat -- so listeners can loop/repeat them as long as they like! Joe's "Crystal Clear"! Therese's Shuggie Otis! Julie's "jibrille-silent mourning"! Anything of Irwin's! Though I think Ol' Pal Irwin won't give his up to the public... :)
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:47pm Matt from Springfield:

...and of course, surface noise loops, in 5 different states of record quality! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/9/13 8:48pm pacific standard simon:

I'm a big fan of the Shemp Howard loop tapes.
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:50pm Joe McG:

Long out of print, but immortal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/9/13 8:51pm pacific standard simon:

That steamboat noise sounds like when I was a kid, blowing on cardboard tubes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/9/13 8:51pm pacific standard simon:

Ooops, gotta run again!
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:52pm Matt from Springfield:

...or a bottle partly filled with liquid!

Catch ya later, PSS!
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Record skip!!
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:58pm Joe McG:

Thanks for listening, folks! We made it! See some of you on Thursday morning for something completely different.
Avatar    Tue. 7/9/13 8:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Joe! Always enjoy your old time records shows!
Have a good night!
     Tue. 7/9/13 8:59pm 12539:

Thanks Joe!
