"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Is this some sort of ethereal jazz
  Wed. 1/15/14 6:57am longtime listener:

If this is a show theme can I request
William basinski - a red score I'm the tile.
Not the whole 40 minutes but at least 10

longtime listener + request = move on

Is this a no "request show"

Love this El-g
Avatar    Wed. 1/15/14 7:21am George of Troy:

Really liked that Tom Hamilton track earlier, so I looked it up. Turns out I already have the album in my collection. Is this indicative of a greater problem? Should I seek help?

@GOT: I think when you forget to look up something you want to know, there be dragons.

Vintage steam-powered Vocoder, right? Wood- or coal-fired? Kerosene?
Avatar    Wed. 1/15/14 7:32am George of Troy:

@RR63: Quite a while now, I'm afraid. At least I'm consistent...
@JA: As long as they bring copious amounts of shopping bags, that's fine.
@Sem: The trouble is, when I look something up and *don't* have it, the dragons come and eat my wallet.

hey BDR. we actually have a strict policy on this show to celebrate death, never birth.
Avatar    Wed. 1/15/14 8:07am BDR:

Cool, I didn't know. Hope you don't get to celebrate death for a while.

Gene Clark I like. But I'm not requesting him. Altho' he is dead...& I own this already.

I just fired up some Peet's coffee again..ahhhhh RR where are you in New Hampshire some old friends of mine used to live in Nashua for years...then relocated to New Mexico later on
Avatar Wed. 1/15/14 8:47am braveness23:

Rascals' NY Deli on Kenwood Rd in Blue Ash, Ohio. I learned a bit more about WHY so many people can't get knish right now. There is actually a national knish shortage. news.yahoo.com...
Avatar Wed. 1/15/14 8:48am braveness23:

Rascals' makes their own
  Wed. 1/15/14 8:49am LovecraftDude888:

I know, I'd read that a month ago or so...was like a knish shortage? I just hope there's no Peet's coffee shortage hehe or ending up costing $25 an ounce or whatever.
Avatar    Wed. 1/15/14 8:49am Cheri Pi:

SHortage, WHAHHH????
Avatar Wed. 1/15/14 8:50am John Allen:

oh great. can the great knish shortage of 2014 get the comments count up to 100 this morning?
  Wed. 1/15/14 8:50am LovecraftDude888:

was reading about that place down in E. Village or Bowery the famous knish place....forget the name..but it's like an orig. hardcore knish palace on Delancey or Houston or whatever. Gotta go there at some point soon next NYC trip if possible.
Avatar Wed. 1/15/14 8:51am braveness23:

@CP, don't you realize that this is the opportunity that we have been waiting for? We will step in to fill everyone's knish needs!
Avatar Wed. 1/15/14 8:52am braveness23:

@John, I was about to move on to the topic of crepes but I suppose I could be talked into discussing knish a bit longer
Avatar    Wed. 1/15/14 8:52am Cheri Pi:

Seriously, we could make a killing.

LD888: I am in Lebanon, town over from Dartmouth U on the western border w/ Vermont - sorta midway up the (little) state; Nashua is east a bit & @ the bottom just over from Mass. ...
Avatar Wed. 1/15/14 8:53am John Allen:

yeah, let's stay with this knish thing for awhile
  Wed. 1/15/14 8:54am LovecraftDude888:

I see it...that place in Ohio gets pretty high marks the NY style deli, etc. Someone said it's pricey but good, generally good reviews. Right Nashua NH more southeast in state....gotcha. I was up there a number of years back briefly...a Lovecraftian trip we hit up that megalith site somewhere in Vermont or NH supposed to be an ancient ritual stone maybe...or something
Avatar    Wed. 1/15/14 8:54am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The Knish Kronikles
  Wed. 1/15/14 8:55am LovecraftDude888:

actually an old college pal of mine told me recently he'd moved from Queens to Nashua NH recently...he said it was keen so far. I wish we had Newbury Comics down here in NY....man!
Avatar    Wed. 1/15/14 8:57am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yes - Horror Writers come from New England or move here. NYC wanting some Culture we got up here - that's novel...
  Wed. 1/15/14 8:57am LovecraftDude888:

don't most of the supermarkets around the country have fresh or frozen knishes these days? Some of them from NYC...but I dunno how great they are. Not as good as from a real deli, etc. Fairway or Trader Joe's should have that stuff
  Wed. 1/15/14 8:59am LovecraftDude888:

well I know from experience New England is a hotbed and Horror Fantasy destination...for all kinds of reasons. Esp. King Lovecraft and Hawthorne and etc. etc. I was up in Maine in 1986 in Rockland...my dad grew up there for a while. Nice area. That was the very week IT was published the King novel, so was reading it in Maine which was keen!
Avatar    Wed. 1/15/14 8:59am common:

i used to live in Providence across the street from what I was told used to be Lovecraft's place. Strange times.
  Wed. 1/15/14 8:59am P-90:

On the local (Ny/NJ) knish front, the shortage caused by the fire at Gabila's knish factory in September has all but ended...
Avatar Wed. 1/15/14 8:59am braveness23:

My own experience says to go with the real deal. Nothing beats a fresh knish
  Wed. 1/15/14 9:00am LovecraftDude888:

you lucky bugger! That's insane! I knew a lot of people in Providence and still do, and around New England...I was friendly with the folks some of them, at Brown's John Hay library but sadly John Stanley I think passed on a few years back..he ran the place and HPL collections and stuff Providence is the bomb!
