Hey Jeff.

Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 3:25am Jeff Conklin:

  Mon. 2/16/15 3:26am jakob:

Morning, yes they had a good Ramle on Rose locked down huh?
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 3:27am Jeff Conklin:

Hey Jakob, you got a Ramble on Rose feel out of that Chu Kosake?
  Mon. 2/16/15 3:28am jakob:

ramble...
  Mon. 2/16/15 3:28am jakob:

totally
  Mon. 2/16/15 3:35am Phil:

This Eternal Tapestry piece sounds more and more essential as it goes
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 3:38am Jeff Conklin:

I'm bummed Dewey is out but ET remains one of my favorite modern gangs of psychedelic hooligans. This new record is great all the way through
  Mon. 2/16/15 3:43am Phil:

Dewey!

Bonjour Jeff and ghettoians
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 4:09am Jeff Conklin:

Hey Pierre. You missed everybody else...a 15-minute Grateful Dead jam scared them all off...
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 4:13am pierre:

that's what attracted me :)
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 4:14am dyingforbadmusic:

Howdy! great William Tyler track! Just for the record: it appeared the first time on his solo debut as The Paper Hats - Deseret Canyon. Unfortunately, this record never gets mentioned, but it's a s good a any other of his.

Is this a different version, Marcus?
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 4:18am dyingforbadmusic:

yes it just shares the same kind of main theme. the skull version is rougher though.
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 4:20am Jeff Conklin:

Good info. Thanks, Marcus
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 4:24am dyingforbadmusic:

Some little more info about the song. www.youtube.com...

Morning, Mr. Conklin. Groovin', I see:-)
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 4:28am Jeff Conklin:

Morning, Sem. Doing what we can over here to stay warm
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 4:31am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Good morning Jeff and everyone. Missed the Dead again: I'll have to start getting up earlier on Mondays! This Ash Ra is a worthy consolation tho'...
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 4:33am Jeff Conklin:

Klaus is no Kreutzman though! Morning, Canterbury
  Mon. 2/16/15 4:39am Mark:

"Freak 'N' Roll" really cooks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/16/15 4:50am estimo:

bright sun, even that the spring is not here, it does peek already!
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:14am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Are you going to the Soldier Field show in July, Jeff?
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:16am the Canterbury wood-elf:

shows, sorry
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:17am Jeff Conklin:

I'd like to go but I didn't get tickets and the endeavor is probably too costly for a man of no means like myself. You?
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:18am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Unless someone miracles me (which doesn't tend to happen around these parts), then no. I think i'll just wait for time travel to get invented and then head for '68-'74.
  Mon. 2/16/15 5:19am Mark:

Your show has such a nice, easy groove today. It always does. This is the kind of music that is most appropriate for this time of day/night, IMHO. Of course, we have listeners in other parts of the world where it's not the middle of the night, but here in the EST, your tunes are perfect.
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:22am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, Mark. I really try to make it work for our time zone, California's and Scandinavia's...
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:22am Jeff Conklin:

I'm tempted just to go and hang in the lot and hope they do a low-power FM broadcast like Healy used to do, Canterbury....
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:23am the Canterbury wood-elf:

...and sounding good in the GMT zone...
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:24am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Yeh, i think they'll probably *have* to set up some kind of external audio for people in the lot to avoid civil unrest! Or maybe the gnarly 90s Deadpunx have all grown out of that now?
  Mon. 2/16/15 5:28am Mark:

They should just do a streaming podcast or something--it's 2015!
  Mon. 2/16/15 5:29am Mark:

I didn't know Les McCann ever did anything this spicy--I think of him as more of an earthy funky kind of dude.
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:29am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Yeah, i can picture it, everyone outside the stadium watching the show on their iPad, Tweeting about it...
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:30am Jeff Conklin:

Im sure there will be a livestream but I love me a good FM simulcast. I am a dinosaur....
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:30am the Canterbury wood-elf:

@Mark It was 1972. EVERYONE seemed to have been affected by the musical zeitgeist. Many jazz players, if i don't like anything else they did, i can handle their discography in the '71-'74 window...
  Mon. 2/16/15 5:37am Mark:

Always nice to hear "In A Silent Way."
  Mon. 2/16/15 5:41am JW:

That Les McCann is SO good.
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:46am Jeff Conklin:

And if yr a record buyer, that McCann is always cheap and still plentiful. In A Silent Way felt like the right thing to do this morning...
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:50am the Canterbury wood-elf:

"it's about that time..."
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:51am Sem Chumbo:

Les McCann into Mr. Davis! I am very much enjoying your show this morning, Jeff. It's punching-up a few mundane writing chores, thanks for the spins. If I could only take your show outside, where snow drifts await shoveling...
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:51am Jeff Conklin:

Get the app, Sem!
  Mon. 2/16/15 5:55am mauri:

great set jeff. i was listening and skiing on lake under sunshine.
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:56am Jeff Conklin:

Once again, thanks to everybody for listening. You guys are the best. See you next time..
Avatar Mon. 2/16/15 5:57am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Thanks Jeff, have a good week. Nice to hear a different version of "Astral Traveling" (didn't know this existed).
