Evening, friends and neighbors.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:08pm Droll:

Days are so short now, it's dark before the Final Stretch starts. After the Daylight Savings Time is over we'll get that extra hour of gaps between songs back.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:10pm Dave Mandl:

Yes. I can hardly wait. Meanwhile, I have something for you, Mr. @Droll.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:10pm fleep:

Some gaps are nice.

Hey, @fleep. Yes, gaps are very underrated.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:11pm JakeGould:

Nice. Thanks!

Evening, JG.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:13pm Droll:

DM, Mary Wing already played Tarkus in it's entirety for me -- I have all the holiday gifts I need... But hey! That can't really be an original tour shirt?!?! Looks new!
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:15pm Dave Mandl:

Never satisfied, @Droll...No, it's not from 1973. I probably got it in the very early '90s.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:17pm Dave Mandl:

I only wear it on special occasions.

Hello everyone. That WA is a blast from the past.

Weddings and Bar Mitzvahs is when I wear my best concert jerseys, too!

Avatar Sun. 12/22/13 10:25pm sloppy sofa:

Dave , I think you've already filled your 2% R@R quota for the evening with the Wishbone Ash, or shall we expect an appearance from Ozark Mountain Daredevils later?
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:32pm Dave Mandl:

Evening, @ss. It's *always* possible I'll play the Ozark Mountain Daredevils. But I'll stay on the air an extra hour or two if necessary to get back under 2%.
Avatar Sun. 12/22/13 10:33pm kent concentrate:

I like the way you think Dave :)
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:35pm Droll:

It's a small price to pay, but so be it. Spin up the OMD!

Can you imagine the disappointment if you played OMD instead of OMD? Like eating an orange after brushing your teeth.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:37pm JakeGould:

Bad Company by Bad Company from Bad Company. My fave one of those things!
Avatar Sun. 12/22/13 10:38pm laptop lego:

Your're clairvoyant Dave, (actually was thinking Led Zepplin) :)
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:38pm Droll:

Our host had a week off recently, maybe the unused portion of the 2% accumulates like unused cell phone minutes...
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:38pm Dave Mandl:

@kent: Why, thank you.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:38pm fleep:

Everyone loves a trifecta.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:38pm Dave Mandl:

@ll: True. I only wish the label were Bad Company too. Oh well.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:40pm Droll:

The only known Quadfecta is Family of God, which Scott Williams confirms the station owns a copy of.
Avatar Sun. 12/22/13 10:41pm Whooda:

Just noticed the Swan Song label, your're physic powers are nothing to scoff at there Dave
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:43pm Dave Mandl:

@Whooda: Thanks. I played that track because the piano flowed so nicely from the M. Crispell piece. But I was talking about the Swan Song label on the show last week, so...
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:44pm Tome:

Hey Dave Hey Kiddles ! ,, nice to be home again Happy Holidays ! cheers,,!
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:46pm Dave Mandl:

Hey @Tome. Welcome.
Avatar Sun. 12/22/13 10:46pm Far Left Lobe:

@Dave. I was just thinking to myself that it's just like you to make the classy decision to go with the Bad Company choice. You are a true master of this music stuff.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:48pm pacific standard simon:

Woof & moo, folks. Sorry I missed the Wishbone Ash and Move. Not sorry I missed the Bad Company, heh heh.

BRASSENS!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar Sun. 12/22/13 10:50pm dance hall dispora:

@PSS it has been a nuanced. subtle mind-bending warp of musical expansionism.
  Sun. 12/22/13 10:50pm josephteilhard:

Brassens died in 1981.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:51pm pacific standard simon:

Still waiting to hear some old Gong records on this PROGram.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:53pm pacific standard simon:

Maybe some Montrose?
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:54pm pacific standard simon:

We Demandl!
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:54pm Droll:

DM is dragging me back to Bad Company/Swan Song -- I recently rediscovered a related supergroup: The Firm. Fantastic fretless work by Tony Franklin.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:56pm Droll:

I couldn't help notice both Plant and Page went with fretless players after Zep ended.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:57pm Dave Mandl:

@joseph: I know he's no longer with us, though I didn't know the exact year. Did I imply that he's still alive? I didn't mean to.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:57pm JakeGould:

Guess Led Zeppelin gave them too much to fret about.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:57pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: Maybe!
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:58pm pacific standard simon:

Maybe they were just tweaking Jones' nose.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:58pm Dave Mandl:

@Droll: Also the Pretty Things, of course.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 10:59pm pacific standard simon:

Thanks for the try, Dave. I don't know why I like Montrose but not Bad Company -- certainly not out of any great love of Sammy Hagar.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:02pm Dave Mandl:

Was Sammy Hagar in Montrose? And why didn't I know that?
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:02pm pacific standard simon:

There's actually so much to be interested in with this Roland Haynes track that I'm having trouble writing.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:03pm fleep:

@pss I kept flashing on Bitches Brew
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:04pm Dave Mandl:

I heard some Return to Forever (Stanley Clarke) in there.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:05pm pacific standard simon:

Plus Brand X.
Avatar Sun. 12/22/13 11:05pm Coy John Diss:

Return to Forever was a nice catch, reminded me of Herbie Hancock.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:07pm pacific standard simon:

Anyway, Dave, Sammy walked out after the tour supporting the second album. He was replaced by Bob James, who did an outstanding job if you ask me.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:09pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: But was Hagar in the original Montrose? I have no recollection of that.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:10pm pacific standard simon:

I'm sure a lot of people don't realize that Ted Nugent was not the lead vocalist in Ted Nugent's band.

Yeah, Sammy was the original.
Avatar Sun. 12/22/13 11:13pm Fancyface:

Oklahoma City Civic Center in the early 70's got to see Ted Nugent pull his stchik of screaming until he passed out on stage, always a show stopper (literally)
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:13pm Droll:

pss knows a lot about Sammy! Howzzat?!
  Sun. 12/22/13 11:15pm Ben:

You guys are interesting.

I am humbled.
  Sun. 12/22/13 11:17pm Ben:

I mean it. You all know so much!
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:18pm pacific standard simon:

I did see Hagar once in the '70s, at a Day On The Green at the Oakland Colosseum. I think I was there to see Blue Oyster Cult, though.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:19pm pacific standard simon:

What I've forgotten, Ben, Google can remind me.
Avatar Sun. 12/22/13 11:22pm tim osman:

@PSS A disreputable hobby of mine in the 70's was to sneak into concerts. I was unsuccessful once trying to get into a Blue Oyster Cult show, while I was stranded outside I heard the most incredible singer doing the warm-up band. This guy's voice literally shook the building. Later I discovered it was Bob Segar.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:25pm Dave Mandl:

My show has always attracted criminal elements.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:25pm Dave Mandl:

(I'm talking about Bob Seger, of course.)
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:25pm pacific standard simon:

I have Tuesday - Friday off. I think it's punishment for refusing to work on Christmas.

Will be delighted to stick around an annoy Ms. Amanda.
Avatar Sun. 12/22/13 11:26pm crying cowgirl:

Old age and treachery overcomes youth and beauty every time Dave.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:28pm pacific standard simon:

Although NOW I have a powerful urge to hear some Robin Trower.

Bob Seger did have that super power, back then. Probably not so much, these days.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:29pm Dave Mandl:

I was thinking about Robin Trower just this morning, no fooling.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:29pm pacific standard simon:

Speaking of youth and beauty... HELLO, Amanda...
Avatar Sun. 12/22/13 11:30pm Wagonsmoke:

Recently binged on Youtube Robin Trower more current live shows. Excellent ride down memory lane (with video even!)
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:31pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: Yes, Amanda has both in abundance.
  Sun. 12/22/13 11:33pm Thierry:

Hi Dave. Quick flashback. In Wikipedia's Brassens article one can read: "His lyrics are difficult to translate, though attempts have been made" ! A successful attempt is to be found by searching "La complainte des filles de joie Emily Loizeau French and English subtitles" within youtube. A beautiful cover, sang twice as slow as the original.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:34pm Dave Mandl:

@Thierry: You know, there's a guy, whose name I unfortunately can't recall right now, who translated a bunch of Brassen's songs into English, and performs them live. I saw him a few years ago.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:35pm Dave Mandl:

I mean same melodies, but in English.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:36pm pacific standard simon:

I should just make a CD of this stuff -- the original butt rock bands -- throw in some Climax Blues Band, some boogie...
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:36pm Droll:

Jezzz, I go to make some dinner, and I was listening to violin and piano, but I come back and the comments are talking about classic rock.

We are getting a full dose of Fusion (capital F) on this show! Fusion (capital F) combines jazz and rock, so Fusion (capital F) still counts as 1% Rock-n-Roll, right?

Great dramatic pause there! It's just like the 3-hour show!
Avatar Sun. 12/22/13 11:38pm sideburn eyebrows:

@PSS I can't wait for smell-o-listen technology, then your're mixed tape will smell like stale beer and cigarette butts on a sticky dance floor.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:40pm Droll:

Ditto Whooda -- Stan's show will finally come with a built-in contact high.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:40pm pacific standard simon:

The only smell I can remember from those days is reefer.
  Sun. 12/22/13 11:41pm Thierry:

@Dave: I would love to hear this singer. Maybe you can research him for next week's program. :-)
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:45pm pacific standard simon:

Hey, before the show ends, I'd like to mention, since I haven't seen it on the FMU front page, that the station Android 2.0 app is now available from the Amazon app store. This is very good news for Kindle Fire users who cannot download apps from Google Play. It works great.

@Droll, PSS Hah!
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:48pm Droll:

Before the show ends let me reiterate how 2-hour shows are the worst of both worlds. Do I complain to Ken or BT?
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:50pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: OK, thanks. A friend of mine also got it running on a Blackberry 10.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:51pm Dave Mandl:

@Droll: Flattery will get you nowhere.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:51pm Dave Mandl:

But Ken is the program director, so he's the man to complain to.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:53pm pacific standard simon:

I think you will often find yourself complaining to the DJ; some have found 2 hours easier, in the long run.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:53pm Droll:

Flattery will get me nowhere? Then Ken's gonna get a big 'ol nastygram!
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:54pm Droll:

pss, Yes, I'm sure they go through all the trouble for the minimum amount of air time. They can hardly fill their timeslots as it is.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:56pm pacific standard simon:

Send him a flaming bag of dogshit -- there'll be a GIF of it on his playlist the next week.
Avatar    Sun. 12/22/13 11:58pm fleep:

Thanks, Dave!

@Droll: I'm kidding.
Avatar    Mon. 12/23/13 12:00am Droll:

Flattery will get me nowhere. I'll make my own GIF.

'Till next week, happy flaming bag of dogshit GIF to you, DM.
