This is great. I love Jack Smith. Thank you
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:39pm Gary:

Jack Smith was a superhero to me for many years ... I drew a 24 page comic about him ... maybe I'll see if I can find a page or two to post here ... Hi, Erella!
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:40pm Erella:

I used to have a radio show at a college music station here in Toronto and had Jack Smith cohost a radio show with me in the early/mid 1980's.
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:41pm Erella:

Wow Gary! I want to see that.
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:41pm Gary:

Are you freaking kidding me? You just won the Internet, Erella!
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:41pm Erella:

Wish there was a recording of that.
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:41pm hyde:

isn't 56 Ludlow on the LES where Lou Reed and John Cale lived?
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:41pm Gary:

It could be, Hyde ... I was just going to ask you about a recording of that show, Erella
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:42pm hyde:

@Erella wow!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/17/16 7:47pm melinda:

So who was Jack Smith? This is new to me.
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:47pm Gary:

It might be the station itself ... I tried to switch over on my phone
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/17/16 7:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Not getting *any* FMU streams right now.
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:47pm hyde:

Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:48pm Gary:

Jack Smith was a filmmaker and performance artist, Melinda ... his most famous film was Flaming Creatures
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:49pm Gary:

Weird that the website is still up but none of the streams
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/17/16 7:49pm melinda:

Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:55pm Erella:

I remember Jack smith rhapsodizing about how great Scheherazade was. We played it and he went into a kind of trance. He claimed to love every version of Caravan too.
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:56pm Gary:

That's so great
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:57pm Gary:

I wonder if he knew the Bollywood Caravan movie
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:57pm hyde:

@Erella haha. that's great
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 7:58pm Erella:

I wonder. I haven't thought about him in years.
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 8:00pm ndbob:

excellent first hour Gary - catch the rest later
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 8:02pm Erella:

Ha. I remember he told a great story Jack told, about seeing Andy Warhol at a party recently (andy was still alive at the time). They had some tension because Jack claimed Andy stole some of his work. According to Jack he grabbed the wig Andy was wearing off and put it on his own head. I hadn't heard that Andy wore wigs before. I remember saying "So Andy had several wigs, they all looked exactly the same as his real hair?" Silliness. Thank you for indulging this memory. Oh yes, I looked a bit like Liz taylor in those days and Jack Smith called me "Liz Taylor Erella"
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 8:04pm hyde:

jeez, man. go ahead and tear down that smile island, rough luck. but let's build it back up.
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 8:07pm Gary:

Great story, Erella
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 8:08pm Erella:

Thank you. Sorry for sounding incoherent.
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 8:09pm Gary:

You didn't sound incoherent at all! Here's a page from my comic: www.facebook.com...

Actually it looks like you can click through it
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 8:11pm Erella:

Hi Gary, I cannot see it because I am not your fb friend. It says Content Unavailable. I am Erella Beaubella Ganon on FB. Would you friend me for an hour and then you can delete it without hard feelings.

Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 8:22pm Gary:

And I mentioned them not idlely ... I was trying to listen to the tracks on my speaker and I thought "Oh this is never going to work" ... until I put on the 'phones

ha. i've been soldering for the past hour and the long tracks have been great to help me zone out with the repetitive soldering motions.
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 9:09pm Gary:

Soldering! Now there's a radio-worthy project. I can see that
  Wed. 8/17/16 9:18pm rex:

This show is cool
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 9:22pm hyde:

i ditched the headphones after awhile because i needed to move around, but that may have been a strategic mistake
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 9:23pm Gary:

Thanks, Rex! Yes, Hyde ... maybe its time for bluetooth headphones?
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 9:26pm hyde:

i like wires
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 9:30pm Gary:

They're comforting. Always there. Not like air. Oh, wait -- no need for scare! Air is there. Always there.
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 9:31pm hyde:

i admit, i am also firmly on the side of air
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 9:32pm hyde:

i'm like that gut in Catch 22 who throws roses at any invading army
