Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 9:16am Marcel M:

@Joe: I'm sure! You know those Cosmic Joker records? Someone invited all those dudes over to take drugs and jam in his studio. Supposedly the players didn't realize he was going to release it, and one day Manuel Göttsching walked into a record store where it was playing and asked the clerk who it was cuz he dug it or something.

There was a nice movie called Facing Ali that came out a while back ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9M6PLAiguds ) . Interviews with his opponents and a great picture of the era. @Joe no, your namesake passed a few years ago.

I will say that Slade and the Sweet were closer to straight up rock 'n' roll than they were to glam or pomp rock. But they were considered teeny bop music, too.

Snakefinger was from Chilly Willy.

Plus, the time Joe, or any of the other FMU DJs spend talking is still less than half the time of most commercial DJ's. And nowhere near as vapid. I'd rather hear Joe talk for 10 minutes about something interesting and pertinent to the music, than any of my local DJs talk about nothing for 2.

I second JP from KC's comment. I had to listen to a commercial NYC classic rock station recently for the first time in years, and was absolutely appalled. They play four songs, then the DJ literally reads two commercials, then they play about 10 minutes of actual commercials. It is truly a dying medium. I'll take FMU DJ mic breaks full of erudite musings any day.

A question, though: when does music begin to choogle?

Is that a question like, "When does a spending increase begin to whop?"? (And who famously asked the latter question - was it Edwin Newman?)
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:32am Joe McG:

@Jeff: I think choogling began around 1968. Got intense in the early 70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 11:33am Greg from ZONE 5:

@em: Seconded. I would put on Hot 97 on my way to the train sometimes and my whole drive was commercials from end to end. So I switched back to JM in the AM (and occasionally Uncle Floyd)

Went sort of Mose Allison for a moment.
These guys are charming!
Never heard this show before,Howdy Joe & company. :)
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:37am Joe McG:

Howdy, geezerette, and welcome! We're a friendly bunch here on Monday mornings.

did i miss anything good?
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:41am Cecile:

yeah. Good set and nice interview. But it'll be in the archives.
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:41am Joe McG:

@annie: How do you like your eggs? ;)
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:42am Cecile:

it seems like a great match.

i know... i over medium, joe.. but i'll take em over easy, too..:)

I used to be an over easy guy, but my wife likes sunnyside up which is actually much easier, so I've converted.

Eggs Over Easy . Glad the pub scene worked out but can't help but wonder if they missed out on the Diner Rock scene with their name.
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:46am Joe McG:

@Brendan: Ha!
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:47am JP from KC:

Delta Rae! They have some pretty good stuff. What a cool connection!
  Mon. 6/6/16 11:48am Brendan:

Great tracks

Our chickens have gone off lay.

Cool interview, Joe.
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:49am JP from KC:

Thanks for this set, Joe. I was completely unfamiliar, but now I'll be on the lookout for some EOE to add to my library.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 11:50am Brian in UK:

That is about par for the Eggs Over Easy story.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 6/6/16 11:50am Ken From Hyde Park:

Could the playlist page provide some kind of "I Can't Take It" button that listeners could use to bail out? It could provide a menu of alternate sounds for X number of minutes. X=3, 5, 10 or "until the next show starts," etc. The alternate sounds could be Muzak®, crickets, the DJ's bed music on loop, a microphone on the roof, etc.
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:50am Joe McG:

You bet, JP! Glad you enjoyed it, Brian! A few technical issues today, but I think it's sorted.
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:52am JP from KC:

That's actually a great idea, Ken. I like the mic on the roof suggestion. That seems very WFMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 11:53am Parq:

Tangential but worth mentioning. A female comedian talked about getting worked over by a self-styled make out artist, who promised her breakfast -- "how do you like your eggs?" She answered, "I like my eggs unfertilized, now get out of my face."
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:54am Joe McG:

@Parq: Zing!

@JP Meaghan's bed music was from Coney Island boardwalk. Street sounds.
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:55am Mick:

I've been on the outskirts of radioland this morning, but super show Joe (what I've been able to hear of it) Thanks for the Eggs Over Easy set & interview - a real treat!
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:56am Ear Hammer:

One more time for the cheap seats in the back! This song is very pretty.
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:56am Joe McG:

Thanks, Mick! Thanks, Ear Hammer! And thanks to everyone who listened in and commented today. Have a great first week of June!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 11:57am Brian in UK:

Don't drink and drive. You will spill it.
  Mon. 6/6/16 11:58am Brendan:

Dragons, Ali and Eggs Over Easy and some good talk... A typical day in the WFMU life. Cant wait for your Southern Special. Love you Joe. Outa here.
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:58am Mister Dobalina:

Pretty awesome track!
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 11:58am JP from KC:

@Brian in UK: That's awesome! Almost as good as Donna's purring cats bed. Or maybe that was Cheyenne. I don't remember.

So, so good today, again. Thx, Joe, See ya later.

Here is the Muhammad Ali program I mentioned earlier. www.democracynow.org...
Avatar Mon. 6/6/16 6:24pm Mark in Toronto:

Joe, I'm just astonished that you or anyone is aware of Eggs Over Easy. I have the Edsel reissue of the Good 'N' Cheap album. The song Arkansas is amazing, as though early Wilco heard that song and said "that's how we should sound". One of the earliest things you could call country rock.
