I was tortured... I had friends that thought it would be funny to bring me to some Dead cover show at the Winter Garden Theater years ago. I was told we were going to hear some live music, which I was excited for. As we near the place, I start seeing a lot of tie dye. I smell a lot of patchouli. I start to get scared and say- ummmm, what's with all the hippies? In the end I won. I made it miserable for them and they realized that it is not fun to be around those people for an experiment to see how I would react. Why torture someone who adamantly hates that music?

The irony of the Dead is: they did an end-run (ugh - sports metaphor) around the Strictures of Pop Music: Album-Hit-Tour - & just did there own thing - & succeeded ! - a whole SubCulture of their own, really
- & then - became an Institution & a Grind all their own (summa them Deadheads - yeah - seriously)

Some people get sensitive when some of us express our honest opinion. OTOH, there are some frequent commenters who are often dissing something and, for whatever reason, no one piles on them. I'd never pile on someone who said they don't like something -- would not try to reason or try to change his/her mind -- and I always hope for the same in return. But I've been piled on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/18/14 7:25am Caryn:

I have no idea how I feel about the Dead. I haven't heard enough of their stuff to go either way. I've thought some songs were fine, some weren't, so I'm on the fence. Or just going "meh" in the corner.

@Dave B: Yeah, the worse for me are the people without enough sense of self they only like and dislike whatever someone(s) they worship likes or dislikes. I have no patience for that toady behavior.

And anyone who says their preferences are not influenced by circumstance -- like what you were doing, how old you were, etc., when you first hear a song or group -- is lying to him/herself. I know there are things I will never dislike because of when and how I found it, but can also recognize how someone happening on it at this day and age would *not* like it.

@kat: I also can't stand people who only listen to one genre of music, or say out and out that they don't listen to this or that genre because "it's all crap". Limiting yourself with artificial definitions is foolish. Chances are, there's something you'll like in every genre of music (and something you hate, too), so why close something off without even trying it.

Or any crazed fans that go berserk if anyone dares say anything that might be considered a slight of their idol. 12-year-olds en masse threatening to kill people for retweeting a negative news report about Bieber? The recent glut of fans who go nuts if anyone dares suggest that "Queen Bey" is not an omnipotent, perfect deity? Sheesh.

Listening to your show as always in my classroom at the Toledo Early College High School. Told the kids I was dedicating your show today to them. Not true though. They are the best kids ever. If you gave them a shout out it would be perfect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/18/14 8:02am Meghan:

hahaha.... poor guys! They aren't losers!
Avatar Thu. 9/18/14 8:02am Kurt Gottschalk:

this is why i can't listen to your show while working - i keep wanting to talk to you! i saw tom petty once - went for the opener, stayed for him, he kicked ass. didn't expect that. also there's this insane book called 'punk diary' where someone just wrote in his journal who was playing at what clubs in london 76-79 or so. no flyers, just his handwriting. it's kinda awesome. ok, back to work. keep rocking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/18/14 8:03am Caryn:

The classroom better listen in to next week's show too, randy! Just to even things out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/18/14 8:03am Meghan:

Hey Kurt! I have that book! Haven't read it yet! It's in my pile of books I need to get to!

Oh, Lemmy, you patchouli-reeking loser... Oh, I kid.
Avatar Thu. 9/18/14 8:05am Kurt Gottschalk:

punk diary is so nuts. i feel like i mighta done that as a teenager - if i had lived anywhere where bands played.
  Thu. 9/18/14 8:07am P-90:

@Kurt: G'Morning! So why would you be surprised that Tom Petty, Mike Campbell, and their band of seasoned, first-class musicians "kicked ass"? Wouldn't you have been more surprised if they DIDN'T kick ass?
Avatar Thu. 9/18/14 8:08am kat330:

@P-90: Yeah, I'd say Petty and the Heartbreakers could be the picture in the dictionary defining "tight bands."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/18/14 8:10am Dave-olution Rabbit:

...you can be too tight...

hi meghan & submarine people.
how come today's theme isnt 'scot' !?
Avatar Thu. 9/18/14 8:11am Kurt Gottschalk:

hey p90 - point taken. i didn't mean to say i was _right_ to not think they'd kick ass.
Avatar Thu. 9/18/14 8:11am kat330:

@Dave-olution: Not this early in the morning.

...I mean, for instance - when a Live band is just like Record - & there's no point going...

hi bibi!
esp. with scottish DJs @ work
Avatar Thu. 9/18/14 8:15am kat330:

Realize I probably need to explain what a dictionary with pages and pictures is.
  Thu. 9/18/14 8:15am P-90:

Seriously, I think there's a little bit of snobbery here...
Like in WFMU-land there's a prejudice that any act that's had some big hit records and gotten a ridiculous amount of airplay and exposure couldn't really be that good...
if the Heartbreakers, Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, etc. were relatively obscure bands sopported primarily by cult followings, but their records sounded exactly the same, they'd be respected and even championed here......just sayin'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/18/14 8:15am listener james from westwood:

Meghan, thanks for the Boston Phoenix love. As a Boston College undergrad I always looked forward to the big stacks of Phoenixes that would appear in the student commons before each weekend. It filled me in on so many local cultural options that I'd have had no other way of finding out about, barring visiting each venue every night (which was indeed a temptation).
Avatar Thu. 9/18/14 8:15am Kurt Gottschalk:

oh mother of mercy, sometimes i forget i'm listening to an internet-only show...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/18/14 8:16am Meghan:

I am part Scot and Northern Irish (outside Belfast)..... so it's kinda one in the same, yes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/18/14 8:16am Meghan:

hahaha! The joys of no censoring!!!
Avatar Thu. 9/18/14 8:17am Kurt Gottschalk:

i've played both steely dan and fleetwood mac (yes, stevie lindsey mac). there might be a bit of fmu snobbery but only a bit of a bit. i'd argue less so than at lots of "nonmainstream" stations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/18/14 8:18am Caryn:

@RRN63: oh, I don't know. Queen always put on a great live show at the same time as sounding very much like their records. Especially with the amount of overproduction and autotune being used, if someone manages to reproduce their recorded sound live, I'm more impressed than upset. It just proves they actually have musical ability. (This does not include those acts that "reproduce their recorded sound" by miming.)
Avatar Thu. 9/18/14 8:18am Kurt Gottschalk:

plus we have clay pigeon to up the numbers!
Avatar Thu. 9/18/14 8:18am kat330:

@P-90: Again, we're sharing a soapbox, only I'd increase it from "a little bit" in certain corners. If people just go with their honest gut instead of what they read or what they're told, I think they'd be surprised time and again with what they actually like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/18/14 8:19am Meghan:

hahaha.... yes we do Kurt.... yes we do!
  Thu. 9/18/14 8:19am P-90:

@Kurt: Check out Nick the Bard's fill-in from June 26, it was an ORGY of web-only-ness!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/18/14 8:21am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...wrong emphasis maybe: some Petty tunes I really like - too much Byrds & stuff in it for me to resist
...I call myself Anti-Populist - I'm sick of what's Overplayed - & that's basic to what used to be called 'Alternative' - which like 'New Wave' was the polite version of Punk, probably...
- & it'd be weird if there's none of that in the FreeForm Community (...or - whatever it is)
- why most of us are here - to hear something else...

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/18/14 8:24am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Queen are an interesting example: their Abilities to both Rawk - & Record - are unequivocal. It happens that their earlier stuff is more to my taste than what got in the Top40 later.
- also - playing 'clean' & precise whilst Rawking is kinda their speciality specifically...
