Who has 10 drinks a day? I have my 74 drinks all at once. Usually on Wednesday afternoon.
  Wed. 10/12/16 3:29pm Jack:

I thought "plodding" is a musical time signature, like "allegro" or "largo", and not necessarily a derogatory value judgement (although I think earlier today Irwin meant it to be one)
Avatar    Wed. 10/12/16 3:34pm Irwin:

We have a month-long "silent" fundraiser in progress. All donations greatly appreciated. The station's financial situation is more dire than we're letting on over the air. Hit the widget atop the playlist. Thanks, all.

@Neil: I did see it, it was fascinating. I thought there could have been a bit more on the music itself and less on the dumbassery, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
  Wed. 10/12/16 3:47pm Clay:

Thanks for the Cold Blood, Irwin! Lydia Pense rocks. I especially love the LP, "Sisyphus." Great Frisco brass-rock.

That Howard Tate song was great--have to get that one.

I like the way Tom says "ROLLing Stones" (emphasis on the ROLL) rather than "Rolling STONES" (like most people do now).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/12/16 4:16pm rrg:

Hey. He already played "Hey Gyp" three episodes ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/12/16 4:17pm rrg:

Also a Donovan song.

Keeping a set list, rrg?

I didn't know HG was Donovan. Must be pre-psych Leitch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/12/16 4:20pm rrg:

Listening with half an ear while working on something else, so not paying proper attention. But I'll fix that later.

Here's where the brothers start to get HEAVY.

"Hey Gyp" is 1965 Donovan.

They're a great band, terrific songwriters. But this interview ... oh, dear.
  Wed. 10/12/16 4:25pm JakeGould:

I like this interview. Sounds so stonerey.
  Wed. 10/12/16 4:26pm Clay:

From Wiki - "In early 1967 the group was signed to the MGM Records label (supposedly because management saw the band's clean-cut image as an antidote to the hippie influx) ... Dennis Larden later joined Ricky Nelson's Stone Canyon Band."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/12/16 4:30pm rrg:

This too (the Wes Montgomery track) he played on the first episode.
  Wed. 10/12/16 4:31pm Brendan:

Awww man I'm late . I had to catch the buzz errr bus . Love these Tom Wilson things.
Avatar    Wed. 10/12/16 4:31pm Irwin:

Clay: They talk about the "clean cut" image later in the show. And when I say "talk," I mean ramble, meander, pontificate, digress, ponder, extemporize, and blather. Be prepared to cringe.
  Wed. 10/12/16 4:32pm Kellen:

another creepy ad!
Avatar    Wed. 10/12/16 4:33pm Passaic River Blues:

The bizarre ads and blithering guests are half the fun!

Those were creepy times, Kell. Don't fall for the Flower Power myth.

The EMS brothers weren't named "Larden", though Wikipedia doesn't mention that. That was imposed on them.

That Tim Hardin? ad sounded so very Jim Sullivan (Thinking of the Jerome track)
Avatar    Wed. 10/12/16 4:36pm Irwin:

Interesting comparison, Brendan. Sullivan has touches of Tim Hardin in his singing and songwriting. I think Hardin died young. Someone check.
Avatar    Wed. 10/12/16 4:37pm Irwin:

Tim Buckley died young (28). Wilson died young (47). Eric Burdon is still with us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/12/16 4:37pm melinda:

Beautiful Tim Buckley.

Tim Hardin was 39 when died in 1980.

Avatar    Wed. 10/12/16 4:41pm Irwin:

The worst of the interview is over. Wilson next talks to EMS producer Wes Farrell about multi-track recording. Pretty interesting, insidery stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/12/16 4:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Oh boy! The 7SD newsletter has arrived. Up next will be a prerecorded Ken & Andy video show where they pay motorists to apply a WFMU bumper sticker. I'm sure there's no fatal flaw there.

Bob Cowsill has a performance/lecture on YouTube. He also talks about Wes Farrell. Funny and informative.

Unless I'm mistaken, not a single fundraising pledge this entire program! Stuck at 10% of this show's goal. Ouch.

@Irwin, for me it was '74. I walked up on them all getting high during the break.

I think this ad guy did some promos for Guy Caballero productions
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/12/16 5:02pm Mike Sin:

Wilson's voice and breezy style definitely makes for great late-night listening. This program was syndicated to WABC-FM at the time, correct? What time did it air in NYC then?
Avatar    Wed. 10/12/16 5:08pm Irwin:

Mike, I don't recall hearing these programs, tho I was a regular listener to the late-'60s New York FM free-form circus.
Avatar    Wed. 10/12/16 5:09pm Irwin:

There's not a lot of info online about the Music Factory shows. We're digging around, finding the odd article in Billboard or Cashbox, but they generally read like press releases.

When is someone gong to make a move with an all Mingus soundtrack ? It wouldn't even have to be a good movie . It would just have to be black and white and set in NYC..that's it ..that's all you need

  Wed. 10/12/16 5:29pm jan:

Hi Irwin- I did not buy that yet, but received my three Broadcast CDs which I managed to both listen to already on the CD player and upload onto my phone. But I should go back to the last playlist and order..
yeah, I'll do that soon.
