By the time I saw Lee Michaels he only played electric piano, having given up organ to preserve his hearing. Frosty was there.

"Frosty" a bit more of an exotic dancer name than a drummer name, but OK.
And I might be mistaken, but by 1977 Virgin was indeed regarded as a pretty big label.
  Mon. 5/2/16 11:12am Dean:

"The Latin adjective is < Greek Σαρδόνιος Sardinian, which in late Greek was substituted for σαρδάνιος (Homer, etc.; of obscure origin), as the descriptive epithet of bitter or scornful laughter; the motive of the substitution was the notion that the word had primary reference to the effects of eating a ‘Sardinian plant’ (Latin herba Sardonia or Sardōa), which was said to produce facial convulsions resembling horrible laughter, usually followed by death."

back to Jesse Jarnow, his book got a good review (in nytimes?)

This is disturbing news. I don't think I've ever seen a pie, store-bought, home made, or served in a restaurant, that "cheated" by not having crust on the bottom. Egads, what will they think of next? Has Bernie and/or Hillary taken a position on this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/2/16 11:36am Cecile:

A cobbler is a pie with no bottom crust. Some people do just a top crust because they are either counting calories or they don't like a soggy bottom crust. It's not that unusual

Once when I was in elementary school my mother put an individually wrapped piece of cherry pie (no Freud jokes, please) in my lunch, which was weird, because I don't recall her ever giving me dessert-type stuff at lunch. I only realized after eating about half the slice that it was resting on a thin piece of cardboard. I'd taken several bites from the cardboard.

On that Richard Griffiths British detective series, Pie in the Sky, chef Henry Crabbe, noted for his steak and kidney pie, never used a bottom crust (although I say the more crust the better.)

@herb: know what you mean about possible Jason/Jesse confusion, being a bit of a night owl myself. I know jj's book got a glowing review in Rolling Stone. [Full disclosure: Jesse's been known to write for that selfsame august peiodical]
  Mon. 5/2/16 11:43am Brendan:

Its also an easier desert. Some berries sprinkled with a crumbled mixture of rolled oats, flour, small chunks of butter sprinkled with sugar makes a nice cobbler. Or crumble some chocolate chip cookies over raspberries in ramekins . In and out the oven in 15 mins and throw a scoop of ice cream and .. Uh i gotta go!

Dean, you were probably busy thinking about word derivations. Thanks, by the way for that gem about Sardenia. Made my day.

beautiful show Joe! Thank you!

Extra crust wouldn't save a steak and kidney pie. Blech.

Soothing to be along w/ Clan McGasko of a Monday morning. Still looking forward to the all-cover show featuring "You Know my Name, Look up the Number" , Joe.

I stand corrected, you guys are right: cobblers count as pies, and certain traditional meat pies have top crust only...

I wonder if the double-decker pie has been invented yet. Even more crust to work with!

Thanks, Jeff, good to see you!

Happy to oblige, @statoj. I agree. Facial Convulsions Resembling Horrible Laughter, Usually Followed by Death would make a great band name.

@KenFromHydePark: Tony Manero eats two slices of pizza pie on top of each other at the beginning of "Saturday Night Fever."
  Mon. 5/2/16 11:53am Brendan:

Think you'd have to bake the double pies separately and construct after. No way to bake a center crust . I like the way you're thinking though. Keep exploring the kitchen space and play with it. Good pie talk.

Is there a bassist called Crusty? He could team up with Frosty the drummer...

I'm soon to be gone, so I just want to say thanks again to anyone who made it to the Record Fair and spent their hard-earned moolah, especially at WFMU's tables, and thanks to everyone for listening and commenting!

Joe man, you killed it today! The elusive 'McGasko sound' can never be copied. Thank you.
Avatar Mon. 5/2/16 11:58am Wild Neil:

Cool show Joe! Double crust pies sound good but impractical to make...unless you make like a bundt type hole to expose the center crust? I don't know...its a crusty problem!

Hi Joe, I thought I recognized that tune "Circles" by Michael Brown, it was one of the songs on the Stories LP "ABOUT US" in a little 1:30 version that closes out the first side. Also thanks for playing that Mick Cox track, always wondered what that record sounded like. Your fan forever, Will J, Pawtucket
