The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

Uncle Tupelo Live on The Music Faucet July 29, 1990 (Host: Nichaolas Hill / Brian Redman)
 
Way back in the summer of 1990 a midwestern trio named Uncle Tupelo played live on Nicholas Hill's Music Faucet program on WFMU. As many know, bandmates Jay Farrar, Mike Heidorn and Jeff Tweedy later split into the bands Son Volt and Wilco. The session predated WFMU's online archives, so on the eve of a new reissue Uncle Tupelo's influential album "No Depression" featuring a couple of these performances, Irene thought it might be time to revisit and air the original session in its entirety.

Rearranged my schedule to get here early this week. Just knew there'd be a Seeger tribute.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 12:06pm Davee:

Yeah!
  Mon. 2/3/14 12:07pm Kurt:

Oh no, not another Pete Seeger tribute.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 12:07pm Mike East:

I'm glad Jeffrey did his Seeger tribute later in his show so I was awake for it. Looking forard to this one, Irene.
Afternoon, all.
  Mon. 2/3/14 12:08pm LP:

Great stuff! It was great then; it's great now. And will be great in 50 more years!!
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 12:09pm kat330:

This is the first Seeger tribute I've heard, on FMU or anywhere. Colbert had a nice performance of Pete doing "If I Had a Hammer," but that was all I managed to see all last week.
  Mon. 2/3/14 12:11pm P-90:

Just noticed that the great shot of Seeger on the page is by Irene T. herself. Excellent
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 12:12pm kat330:

Yes, excellent, as all Irene's photos are that she's posted.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 12:12pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Everybody! Hope you're staying warm and snug, and away from teh snow in the NYC area. Yeah, another Pete Seeger Tribute. I'm hoping not to copy the other ones. Later I'm airing a vintage show with Uncle Tupelo from The Music Faucet.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 12:12pm Parq:

Kat, Dave the Spazz did what I thought was a perfect little one-set tribute last Thursday night, about halfway through the first hour of his show.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 12:14pm kat330:

Thanks, Parq! I'll make a note of that.

@Van, I'm not sure of the name on that one but will check

Interesting he does this in a major key. PP&M did it in a minor key.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 12:37pm kat330:

Pete certainly could work an audience. Even did so at age 93-4 w/ Colbert's cynical and hip city audience. If he asked you to sing, it's an offer you couldn't refuse.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 12:39pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Hello everyone. Thanks for a fitting & wonderful tribute to a great man, Irene. He may not have been the most apparent part the collective FMU consciousness but he was in there nonetheless.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 12:44pm Webhamster Henry:

ISB is nice to hear with an appropriately titled song.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 12:46pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Yeah kat, Saw him twice on LI in the mid-70s doing a round-robin with Harry Chapin & Steve Goodman. Despite being the "0ld Guy", he certainly held up his end. 0f course,now they're all gone.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 12:50pm SSS:

Harry Chapin played at my high school in 1975 for a ticket price of ten cents. (It's a hobby of mine to date myself)

Lovely, a track off "Inside"

@Kevin: Cool. Sadly I never got to see him in concert.

Terrific set going on here
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:02pm Brian in UK:

@Kevin Loved to have seen Seeger, Chapin & Goodman. Only ever managed Chapin. All heroes.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:03pm Brian in UK:

Been thinking a lot this last week about Jac Holtzman & Elektra. Another hero.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:03pm kat330:

Goodman may have written THE quintessential American song -- yes, even beating out "This Land Is Your Land."
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 1:05pm SSS:

I did not realize my double entandre! You know, I met Pete at his place once, and ran into him 25 years before that when the ClearWater docked in upper Manhattan. Just another local.
  Mon. 2/3/14 1:15pm BarbR:

One of my favorite college radio memories was Uncle Tupelo playing in our studio back in 1991.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:20pm Fuzzy:

@kat330: do you mean the perfect Country & Western song? One and the same?
  Mon. 2/3/14 1:21pm Listener Schned:

Anybody recall what time of day The Music Faucet came on back then ? Pretty sure it was a Sunday show...
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:24pm kat330:

@ Fuzzy: Sorry, was away from the list for a bit. Not exactly C&W -- a genre usually not my cup of tea -- but purely Americana. City of New Orleans is such a perfect song, IMO.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:26pm Irene Trudel:

@Listener Schned, the Music Faucet definitely aired on Sunday evenings. I was thinking it was kind of on the early side--either 6pm or 8pm. It varied over several schedules. I was the engineer for a good many of them but not for Uncle Tupelo.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:27pm Fuzzy:

@kat: Ah, yes -- City of New Orleans is awesome too! I thought you might be referring to "You Never Even Called Me By My Name," another Goodman gem.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:31pm common:

this is great to hear! Thanks Irene!
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:32pm kat330:

CoNO wonderfully moves between minor and major keys, an element that is almost always featured in my favorite songs across all genres.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:34pm Fuzzy:

Yes, just went through a verse on my guitar -- the Em and Bm chords give it a nice melancholy flavor.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:35pm Fuzzy:

If you're playing it in G...
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:36pm kat330:

First time as a kid I consciously realized how important this changing between minor / major is to my sensibilities was listening to the Exciters "Tell Him."
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:45pm Fuzzy:

Vote for your Favorite Chord today! Mine is Em7 -- funky as I wanna be!
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 1:47pm glenn:

A diminished.
  Mon. 2/3/14 1:47pm r i s k y:

This host is REALLY ANNOYING... Anyone with me on that one?
  Mon. 2/3/14 1:48pm r i s k y:

Not Martha* her voice is calmer than a silent stream.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:50pm kat330:

@Fuzzy: Since you're a guitar player, did you notice a certain guitar chord sequence + rhythm in Seeger's "Oh Freedom" that was the same as in "Walk Right in / Sit Right Down"?
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:50pm Ike:

@risky@1:47, I always thought so too! I didn't want to be first to say it but I could NEVER stand him! I heard a rumor that he had an annoying entourage as well. I was so glad when the Stork Club replaced this, despite this cool Uncle Tupelo set.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:51pm common:

he seems a tad condescending. again, why can't i spell?

@kat: no, I didn't catch that. That "Walk Right In" is a tough one to play (for me anyway...)
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:54pm Fuzzy:

Folk and fingerpicking are not my strong suite as a guitar player.
  Mon. 2/3/14 1:56pm ceedubbles:

So cool that now the archive is Archived
  Mon. 2/3/14 1:57pm r i s k y:

@common, yeah just a tad lol. Yikes.
  Mon. 2/3/14 1:58pm BarbR:

Wow, I was probably at that show at the Middle East...
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 1:59pm common:

@risky: makes me a little uncomfortable.
Avatar Mon. 2/3/14 1:59pm glenn:

walk right in is played on a 12 string tuned down one whole step.
  Mon. 2/3/14 2:00pm r i s k y:

Oh man DJ Host Etiquette 101. If you have nothing nice to say, SHUT UP!
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 2:01pm Irene Trudel:

@r i s k y, I don't agree. I happened to like Nick's delivery. Also, I'm not Martha. Anyway, glad I could get this show in the archives.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 2:02pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks for the replay Irene; Doug S. did the world a favor by similarly archiving the Steinsky shows.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 2:02pm kat330:

He was really smartass about UT's hometown being in that vast nothingness so many coasters don't even pretend to have any geographical sense of.
  Mon. 2/3/14 2:03pm BarbR:

Thanks Irene! Enjoyed the set v. much
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 2:04pm kat330:

@glenn: Well, probably not *all* versions. I think I was hearing the PP&M version. Maybe they lifted it from Seeger. [shrug]
  Mon. 2/3/14 2:05pm Listener Schned:

Thanks Irene, 6pm sounds about right- just kind of re-visiting what I was doing then, the days when ya had to be there listenin' live- thanks too for all your shows and remotes, you pot a mighty mic!!
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 2:06pm Fuzzy:

@glenn: Yeah, the detuned 12-string sounds nice. I still can't play it, on any guitar.
  Mon. 2/3/14 2:08pm ddd:

really enjoyed the tupelo set
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 2:08pm Ike:

I respectfully stand with r i s k y on Mr. Hill (preferably with combat boots). Thanks for replaying this, Irene. I always enjoy hearing a bit of FMU history from the 90s and discussing past hosts, good and (IMO) bad.

Also, the timeslot when this aired was 8-10 p.m., because Fabio was on from 10-midnight.
Avatar    Mon. 2/3/14 2:08pm Whosondephone:

Terrifying!!! tuning into the middle of that!

Any program at FMU paying tribute to the day the music died? My morning started with Big Bopper's delightful Chantilly Lace.

Nice autoharp sound.

Ohh, so there really IS also a There Will Be Jug title? I thought I'd misheard you when you repeated it last week as "Let There Be Jug!" Both are great, but I like the movie ref.
