Hi Irwin! What's it like broadcasting from 37 miles south of Death Valley?

And hi everyone!

I feel like I should request something from the original cast recording of Hair.

Hi Irwin - the App is showing a video stream - are you planning a stream today?

I plan to stream about 45 minutes after my first cup of coffee.

This is really nice. ... What kind of activities do you think they have at Camp Irwin, 37 miles below Death Curse Valley?
Avatar    Wed. 12/21/16 3:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Canoeing and lanyard-making, no doubt.

@Irwin - is that a current picture? You don't look a day over 9 Million years old!

Geological age 12 million years? Ha! Clearly this sign is a quaint relic of the Established Scientific Fact era.

Per Wikipedia, John Tout was the keyboardist on "Prologue".
Avatar    Wed. 12/21/16 3:22pm Irwin:

Thanks, PRB. There was a previous incarnation of Renaissance with two Yardbirds, but the entire band left to be replaced by a new band, who kept the name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/21/16 3:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

My dad mentioned this band once. It was a triple bill of Lettuce, Turnip and Pea.

Hell yeah, everything us 22-year-olds say IS true.

Thus it is demonstrated.

Vanishing Twin is the Band Who Would be Broadcast.

Yeah, I hear that! Similar atmosphere. Need to check out.

  Wed. 12/21/16 3:46pm outofluck70:

why are failed attempts at jokes better than the actual joke? Irwin's start of the explanation of Monty Hall made me wonder :)
Avatar    Wed. 12/21/16 3:49pm Irwin:

Trust me, it was a great joke, but it fell apart before I could sputter out the sixth word.
  Wed. 12/21/16 3:49pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

..and I LOVE the Renaissance of the 70s ..the band Renaissance ..not a renaissance movement in the 70s which didn't happen as far as I know. However , had there been one I would have been fully behind it and the band
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/21/16 3:50pm redkayak:

I like this. Somehow reminds me of King Crimson....
Avatar Wed. 12/21/16 3:51pm glenn:

is it the pretension?
  Wed. 12/21/16 3:54pm Jack:

I think it's the energy.

@redkayak: I don't think any connection was mentioned. Sam just talked about his musical tutelage in 1950s Dallas and Tom, also a Texan, was an enthusiastic audience. It was great.

Janis Ian's 1st three albums were produced by Shadow Morton, a very strange cat. He also produced "Leader of the Pack" and a bunch of Shangri-Las hits.

Never knew the guy behind "Wooly Bully" was a philosopher who spoke in the lush tones of a Dallas pool hall hustler. Caviar and nitty gritty, indeed. CAPITAL JOB, TW!
  Wed. 12/21/16 5:03pm Listening Out There:

Dean: Yeah, that. Sounds like what Bob and Ray used to intro one of their standard bits, "Mary Backstage, Noble Wife." No biggy...

Richard Sinclair: bass and lead vocal. Then moved on to Hatfield & the North.

After Richard Sinclair left, they lost their vocal and bass sound, in my opinion.

But the Hatfields fill that void, plus you get Pip Pyle on drums.
