Hey Uncle Michael and Dominick! Today we are giving thanks for tunes
Avatar Tue. 11/24/15 3:05pm herb.nyc:

hi matt. this be my first time tuning in. who are THE BEATLES? bad joke, but from ELVIS COSTELLO memoirs, drummer STEVE one day goes to elvis, circa 1978, and shows him a beatles record (was it "hard day's night"?) and asks "have you heard this?". very amusing. plz carry on with the great music.
Avatar Tue. 11/24/15 3:07pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

smoking "filtered" cigarettes! ha ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:07pm Uncle Michael:

Dummer Pete or piano player Steve?
Avatar Tue. 11/24/15 3:08pm V Priceless:

Hey Matt and gang!
Avatar Tue. 11/24/15 3:09pm herb.nyc:

or sorry, keyboard STEVE (ugh, i'm so dump) AND, his real surname is NASON.
  Tue. 11/24/15 3:10pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

One of my faves!!!
  Tue. 11/24/15 3:10pm David Marando:

OI...!!

The book is right here on my bedside table, unstarted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:10pm MattBelow:

Hey Herb welcome!
Hello to Glynis and V! How are you folks doing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:10pm Mike Sin:

Hi Matt!
re: Day Tripper
Definitely a case where the mono mix makes such a difference. They just couldn't get the right balance with the stereo.
Avatar Tue. 11/24/15 3:12pm herb.nyc:

and MattBelow, it's herb from the recent AUDIENCE ENGINE lunch. i mean launch. (i now don't need crutches)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:12pm MattBelow:

Hey Sissophonic, Pa and Mike!
@Mike: That dropout during the last verse is definitely less awful on the mono. It simply rocks. Same for Paperback Writer. Mono rules on those two.
Avatar Tue. 11/24/15 3:12pm Dominick:

Hi Mike, They probably didn't give the stereo mix more than a passing attempt.
Avatar Tue. 11/24/15 3:13pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

One of my favorite telephone songs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:15pm Mike Sin:

re: Orlons on ABKCO
They must have had a contract with Cameo or some such to end up in Allen Klein's cauldron!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:16pm Uncle Michael:

Started my holiday early...Thursday we're hosting the family and I'm trying to pull Friday's show together too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:16pm MattBelow:

@herb: Glad you're feeling better!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:18pm Uncle Michael:

Brenton never gets old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:18pm MattBelow:

@Uncle Michael: Brenton is the tops!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:20pm Uncle Michael:

Matt, from where does your show emanate, the station?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:22pm MattBelow:

@Uncle Michael: I do my show in Studio C. The one near the Ruth booth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:26pm Gaylord Fields:

WFMU should rename it Studio A+ because of the great shows Matt does in it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:26pm Uncle Michael:

I know the room. I'm glad to see it getting well-used like this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:34pm MattBelow:

Thanks Gaylord! How are you doing?
@Uncle Michael: Studio C is comfy! They just installed remote start on the turntables and CD players. It needs a bit of a tune-up but now it's like a palace in here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:35pm Gaylord Fields:

@MattBelow: I'm working hard pre-holiday, so this show is just the inspiration I need.
Avatar Tue. 11/24/15 3:40pm Dominick:

A++
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:41pm Mike Sin:

I was surprised that one of these dudes from the Cyrkle ended up producing a bunch of Foghat LPs (!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:42pm MattBelow:

@Mike: Kind of like one of the Harpers Bizarre lads doing Van Halen eh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:48pm Uncle Michael:

Ted Templeman became nothing short of a monster producer...learning his craft on those Harper's records. I LOVE his Doobie Brothers productions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:51pm Mike Sin:

Yeah, it's easy to forget that half of these dudes in the '60s were barely shaving when their performing careers ended... they still had other options/talents in the biz to pay the rent!
Avatar Tue. 11/24/15 3:52pm Dominick:

Skiddly Biddly Bop!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:52pm MattBelow:

@Uncle Michael: It would be interesting to hear his story how he went from garage-rocker to world class top dog
  Tue. 11/24/15 3:53pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Matt getting me thru!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:53pm Mike Sin:

Next week, I expect the $1-find show. ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:54pm Uncle Michael:

Matt, read up on the origins of Harper's...it's interesting. They began as a really low-fi surf band. How they morfed into such a baroque ensemble is rather amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:55pm MattBelow:

@Uncle Michael: Any good books you know of?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:57pm MattBelow:

@Mike Sin: If I play two 50 cents at the same time does that count?
Avatar Tue. 11/24/15 3:57pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

This makes me want to do a 10 cent show. I killed it at a 10 cent record sale once.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:58pm Uncle Michael:

Not really. Though I think a book about all the *other* brilliant guys that worked in parallel to Brian Wilson o in post-Spector L.A....Templeman...Boettcher...Bones Howe...that would be a potential good read.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:58pm Gaylord Fields:

It's always been a head-scratcher that, at a time when Brit female contemporaries like Dusty and Petula were having stateside hits, Sandie couldn't get a U.S. hit to save her life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:58pm MattBelow:

@Gaylord: It is bizarre!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 3:59pm Uncle Michael:

thanks for the music, Matt
Avatar Tue. 11/24/15 3:59pm V Priceless:

whoa! Great Fairport track! Have a swell holiday, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 4:00pm MattBelow:

Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for the chat everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 4:01pm Mike Sin:

@Gaylord
Sandie Shaw was held up at US customs for trying to enter the country without wearing shoes. Couldn't enter the country. Torpedoed her entire career. Couldn't tour. :)
  Tue. 11/24/15 4:01pm David Marando:

Great song to end the show!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 4:02pm MattBelow:

@Mike Sin: Who knew it'd be customary to enter an airport shoeless just 40 years later!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/24/15 4:02pm Gaylord Fields:

@Mike Sin: And now she couldn't fly to the U.S. without taking her shoes off!
