Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/11/16 12:08pm Webhamster Henry:

The Stream was just playing "Daddy, What's a Tree?" I think a whole set could be made of that kind of thing, like "What Have They Done To The Rain?", which we used to sing in choir : Imagine our little kids' voices lamenting the effects of nuclear fallout!
Avatar Thu. 8/11/16 12:08pm Charlie:

I swear, every other week, there's a new technical snafu. That's live "radio" for you...

The Nauman backing track here sounds like a good candidate for background music of a Joe Frank episode.

Hi James!
Boo work mayhem!

I just played the Ripper album through yesterday. It was fun. I only skip the few tracks that sound like arcade games.
Avatar Thu. 8/11/16 12:42pm Charlie:

ßrian -- agreed, I prefer the tracks sourced from movies, but I like a few of the others too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/11/16 12:50pm sphere:

this Keith and Ken track is so sweet. :)

I actually heard Ginsberg play, dandling his harmonium on his knee.

He sang a song about death.

Then he sang a song about... death.

Aww, stepped out, missed Aimee. Nice "...Sunshine" takes.
Avatar Thu. 8/11/16 1:25pm Charlie:

Henry -- for some reason, I cannot play from Soundcloud, or anything that requires Flash, on the computer I use for audio for the show. It's an old PC running XP, and I can't update Flash. If you know I work-around, I'd be obliged! Otherwise, I'll check out the song for future reference:)
