I like standing in the peanut gallery outside the fence at outdoor shows. Last year I watched Dinosaur Jr from that vantage point while sipping on some cold ones. The irony was not lost on me that I would watch Foghat at bbq fest in the same manner.

talk about a rising tide lifting all boats - I can't imagine this ever going platinum except in the fat years of the record industry.

I think someone should remake the song as power pop, though.

I mean that crappy Rita Coolidge album! It was the biggest thing since sliced bread back then, and she's singing like she's in a coma.

@Cecile: I just bought that but haven't listened to it yet. Got it for 50 cents!

As long as Single File starts promptly about 4 minutes late, I'm happy.
  Thu. 7/11/13 10:36am Haruka:

For your bed music, I would suggest "Space Lady" by Lonnie Liston Smith, specifically the open sections, not so much the main theme.

I agree, Joe, with that horrible 80s drum sound...I always bitch about how that ruined so many great songs. Technology went backward for awhile there.

I have to say the "8-track" station on Sonic Tap on our satellite radio always surprises me. I've heard every thing from the Monks to Television to Wishbone Ash to Deep Purple on there. And deep cuts. They also seem to have a Roy Wood obsession, which is a-OK with me.

Another small test, really sorry for the noise.

This is not a reasonable hour!
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:15am Joe McG:

No worries, I usually passed my tests.

Joe...is that Ned Sparks?
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:16am Cecile:

Oh, peppi died? I liked that first Good Rats album.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:19am Joe McG:

@UM: Yep, sure is!
  Thu. 7/11/13 11:21am A new listener:

...just willing to say that I really liked the program!
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:21am Rick from SC:

very cool. never heard this version
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:22am Uncle Michael:

Very nice. I love 1930s character actors.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:22am Joe McG:

Thank you, new listener!
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:22am DCE:

I seldom favorite episodes, but Joe, you earned it with this one!
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:23am Carmichael:

Joe, you mentioned Belle & Sebastian a while back. Had a brain fart and thought you were talking about Lime & Cybelle. It would be hard to hear THEM live ...
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:23am tim from champaign:

One time I showed my wife the cover of Herbie's Push Push and the got a look on her face that was a mixture of terror and disgust.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:24am Joe McG:

@DCE: Click that star! Thanks, my friend.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:24am Uncle Michael:

@tim: Was it the full gatefold?
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:24am Jeff:

Your show often makes me wish I were listening with vintage tube gear.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:24am tim from champaign:

Herbie had killer guitar players on his albums around this time period.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:25am Joe McG:

@Carmichael: Unfortunately! @ tim: Fortunately, Herbie's hair is solarized on the cover of this LP.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:25am Joe McG:

@tim: Yeah, Sonny Sharrock is on this one.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:29am Jeff:

Oh man, @tim, I just looked up the Push Push cover. Now how do I get that image out of my brain?
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:29am tim from champaign:

@ Uncle Michael. I was afraid to show her the gatefold of the push pushing after her reaction to the front cover.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:31am DCE:

oh come on, hairy men are sexy men...right?
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:32am Carmichael:

Herbie Mann, SEX MACHINE!
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:34am the glowing one:

this sounds like a Peter Gabriel or Adrian Belew song
  Thu. 7/11/13 11:34am A new listener:

@jeff you made me curious enough to look at the cover myself... Now I have your same problem. :)
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:35am Uncle Michael:

I thought Belew too.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:36am andymorphic:

i thought talk talk...but i want to find some bn records this is great
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:36am Joe McG:

You folks really have to stop looking at that album cover. It will sear your eyes permanently.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:36am KevinfromBayRidge:

Sh---t!! Didn't know about Peppi Marchello. Obit on LONGISLAND.COM. Spent many hours of my early 20s seeing GoodRats in Suffolk Co. Clubs. Scelsa fave.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:38am the glowing one:

Yeah, like Belew is singing on a Gabriel record. But it's Blue Nile! Not very known 80s band, I have that record, it's great.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:39am Cecile:

this is unintentionally hysterical.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:40am KP:

I saw Good Rats open for Hubert Humphrey.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:41am ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Bah! I looked, now turning to sto..
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:41am Cheri Pi:

Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:42am Cheri Pi:

OK, I just looked at the Push Push cover... new order!
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:42am Carmichael:

Is it too early to talk about beersies?
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:43am andymorphic:

the second you hear that bass you know
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:43am KP:

sorry, Cecile, did not see your question. yes, following heart surgery.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:43am Uncle Michael:

Please turn the conversation from bears to beers.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:44am northguineahills:

Good New Order choice.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:45am tim from champaign:

These lyrics are so weird.

Peter Hook is my all time favorite bass player.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:47am Cheri Pi:

Beersies???!!!
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:48am andymorphic:

Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:48am Cheri Pi:

I met Peter Hook! that is my only claim to fame.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:48am northguineahills:

ok, beer it is!
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:48am Cheri Pi:

And I gave him a Woof-moo sticker.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:49am Cecile:

besides winning the WFMU fake prog contest, that is.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:49am Joe McG:

@Cheri: Did he hit on you?
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:49am ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Both bears and beers get sweaty.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:50am andymorphic:

Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:50am Cheri Pi:

I'll join you Ngh in 5.5 hours, you cheeky devil. Of course Cecile! No, JMcG- he's English.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:50am Cecile:

who asked for a combination of Yacht and Devo? I didn't.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:50am DCE:

look at my Huffy!
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:50am Joe McG:

@Cheri: Ha ha! Bad Hooky.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:51am Cheri Pi:

Look at his harpy
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:51am Cecile:

Oh, it's pre=-Yacht. It's vintage dopiness. It's still dopey
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:51am DCE:

my Huffy has a pink seat and a number plate on the front
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:51am Carmichael:

I have a Schwinn Varsity. The bookrack still snaps.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:51am Cecile:

ahahahah, I remember this one well.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:52am Chris from DC:

Oh man, yeah.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:53am Carmichael:

It's not even 9 AM here, so beersy discussion is normally a social taboo. But a good IPA is a good IPA. Lagunitas got favored in Consumer Reports this month.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:55am DCE:

Consumer Reports rates beers??!
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:56am northguineahills:

Well, I got to wait until I break for lunch for a beer to be possibility.
     Thu. 7/11/13 11:57am 12539:

Thanks, Joe.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 11:57am Chris from DC:

There will be beersies later on, rest assured.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:57am dc pat:

no beersies today so stop talking about 'em!
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 11:58am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening, everybody! Stay tuned for Diane, coming up in mere minutos.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 12:00pm Cheri Pi:

Thanks Joe!

Hey, Joe, delighted with your show's timeshift so I can listen live now—mollusk! :)
