Hello Tony and listeners. I just googled "smegma": I shouldn't have!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 12:13pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Yvang! Yep, watch out for the Smegma -- it's sticky....
  Tue. 4/25/17 12:16pm Dean:

Beautiful, the reference to Poo-Bah's, which was once an oasis of a record store in Pasadena. It moved a few years ago, at which time the inventory changed radically for the worse. I used to spend long afternoons at Poo-Bah's.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 12:18pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Dean! Wish I could have made it to Poo-Bah's in the (its) good old days. Several LAFMS people used to work there.
  Tue. 4/25/17 12:21pm Dean:

It was a wonder to behold, an old house with layers of memorabilia affixed to the interior walls and a lot of turnover of recorded goodies. One summer when I was single and childless I must have spent a lot of time there. I walked in one afternoon and the guy at the register said, "Here's the guy who pays my salary!" I used to go kinda crazy there.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 12:31pm Tony Coulter:

I sometimes wonder how much I'm contributing to the Portland economy, what with all the records, CDs, and tapes I buy. My money goes to a bunch of different places, though, so it's probably not particularly noticeable in any one place.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 12:32pm Tony Coulter:

And I should say that the Portland economy is entirely based on coffee shops, restaurants, bars, tattoo parlors, and record stores.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 12:32pm Gary:

This 2017 cassette, you probably explained this and I didn't catch it, but is it a compilation of older material?
  Tue. 4/25/17 12:33pm Dean:

I got fed up with Tower Records in the early 2000s. Then they went bankrupt. Coincidence?
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 12:33pm Tony Coulter:

@ Gary: Yep it was mostly recorded in 1974–75 ... plus a bit from '82.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 12:36pm Tony Coulter:

OOPS. Forgot that hair salons and marijuana dispensaries are also pillars of the Portland economy. Mustn't leave them out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/25/17 12:37pm doctorjazz:

I saw a recent article on Tower Records, was it the Times? Was a fun read. I spent too many hours/dollars at the lower Manhattan store, which, along with J and R at one point, had a lot of stuff available.
(Hi all...)
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 12:38pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, doctorjazz! I too spent many hours at the Tower discount annex on 4th street.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 12:39pm Tony Coulter:

... and at J & R!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 12:40pm Tony Coulter:

I'm still using a turntable I bought at J & R at least 20 years ago....
  Tue. 4/25/17 12:40pm MrFab:

Whassup, all. Looking forward to Smegma (boy, does THAT sound wrong).
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 12:40pm Tony Coulter:

Greets, MrFab!
  Tue. 4/25/17 12:41pm Dean:

One weekend I managed to travel to more than a handful of the Tower Records in the LA area in search of Sviatoslav Richter's 1958 Sofia, Bulgaria, performance of Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition." This would have been c.1990 or so, when much of the classical catalog had not yet been digitized. Never found it. (It has since been issued on disk.) Dropped by my buddy's record store in Whittier, where a stack of recently acquired used classical LPs sat on the counter. "Fifty cents each," he announced. The bottom record was the Richter!

Bought my current turntable in '83 at Havens & Hardesty in Huntington Beach, another oasis.
  Tue. 4/25/17 12:42pm Post-Materialists:

Greetings from Russia, Tony! we released Smegma cassette + lathe cut here couple of weeks ago. Need to send you a copy with some new Post-Materialists releases. Best Wishes!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 12:43pm Tony Coulter:

Welcome, Post-Materialists! Would love to see/hear what you released!!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 1:07pm Jeff Golick:

Hello, Tony, and all assembled Coulterians.

I bought my current receiver with some bar mitzvah money, at a Boston-area Lechmere. This would be around 1982, I think.

Tony, if you only the stuff you played was widely available, think what you'd do for the global economy.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 1:11pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Jeff!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 1:14pm Tony Coulter:

I found the receiver I used for years in the garbage, sometime in the late '80s or '90s. Still have it in the basement..
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 1:27pm Jeff Golick:

What make was it, Tony?
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 1:28pm Tony Coulter:

Cut-ups is the wrong term for this Jackie Stewart thing, of course -- just kind of slipped out of me. More like audio collage / mixing / turntablism.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 1:30pm Tony Coulter:

@ Jeff: It's a KLH Model 51. I know because I bought another one online, which I'm using now!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 1:31pm Tony Coulter:

I'm loyal to the garbage I find on the street....

By the way, the cassette on now is the one with the bathing beauty on the cover.

Hey, TOny! Work getting in the way of my listening schedule.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 1:42pm Tony Coulter:

Hey hey, Nick!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/25/17 1:43pm doctorjazz:

@Nick S, it tends to do that, sad...

I'm sick of it and I'm not going to take it anymore!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 1:54pm Rich in Washington:

This is wonderful, Tony! I didn't know about this cassette release until today.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 1:56pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Rich! It's brand, brand new, so it's not surprising you didn't know of it.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 1:57pm Rich in Washington:

I am this close to kluging a cassette deck into my car.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 1:59pm Tony Coulter:

Our car is old enough that it came with a cassette deck. Not that I play rare tapes in there -- I stick to things I pick up in thrift stores for 50 cents. You know, Heart, Moody Blues....
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:01pm geezerette:

Hi,Tony! Hello, voices in my head.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:01pm Tony Coulter:

Hola, geezerette!
  Tue. 4/25/17 2:06pm Nardo:

Glad I tuned in Tony. Enjoyed Karen Constance. I remember an LP she did with Dan Melchior. It was on a want list but never picked it up.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:08pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Nardo! I don't have anything else of hers -- should seek it out.
  Tue. 4/25/17 2:08pm Dean:

I have an NAD cassette player still in the box, virtually unused for something like 15 years, due to cable issues that discourage my adding it to the system. Always wanted a Nakamichi Dragon, though.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:18pm Tony Coulter:

I may have to look for a new cassette deck soon -- which is a pain these days, as there seems to be no more middle ground. Either they're cheap pieces of crap, or they're very expensive.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:19pm Tony Coulter:

Actually wrote "cheap pieces of carp" before catching the typo. Sounds fishy, I know....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/25/17 2:19pm doctorjazz:

I had some Nakamichi decks, but not the Dragon; never seemed fidelity was up to the expense with cassettes. Had a friend who taped live shows (still does, digital gear, doesn't sneak in the gear anymore), listened to his live stuff on it, and taped LPs for the car.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/25/17 2:19pm Nardo:

Karen Constance is also one half of Blood Stereo with Dylan Nyoukis. This was live on Fabio's show back in 2011 freemusicarchive.org...
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:20pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Nardo!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:21pm Tony Coulter:

Almost bought the James Last LP with "Giant Man" on it the other day -- which, of course, made me think of Fabio.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:28pm Rich in Washington:

I also fairly recently got that Giant Man lp. As much as I love it, I would feel weird playing that track on the air because of Fabio. I did when Last died though
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:30pm Rich in Washington:

every once and a while I find big piles of German easy listening music in thrift stores. I really love Klaus Wunderlich's Hammond organ stuff. It's pretty crazy.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:32pm Tony Coulter:

What always scares me away from those Wunderlich records is that they usually feature medleys, which I'm not a big fan of.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:33pm Rich in Washington:

This is wonderful! I love it!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:42pm Jeff Golick:

Gotta head out, @Tony. Thanks!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:43pm Tony Coulter:

See ya, Jeff!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:44pm geezerette:

Love this!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:45pm Tony Coulter:

Yep, it's fun-kay!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:49pm geezerette:

Is there an album with this on it?
(Shouldn't ask, oughta just search it.)
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:49pm Tony Coulter:

There is! www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:50pm geezerette:

Thanks Tony!!! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/25/17 2:50pm doctorjazz:

Fun show, enjoyed it (Super Sony was really fine).
Now, over to WKCR, Ella Fitzgerald Birthday Broadcast (happy 100, Ella).
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:51pm geezerette:

DocJazz, thanks for reminder!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:52pm Tony Coulter:

See ya, doctorjazz ... and say hello to 'KCR -- they're my radio Alma Mater....
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:52pm Rich in Washington:

I love this track. As far as I know, it's the only tape piece of this nature that Trythall ever did. The music he's more known for is minimalist piano compositions, not unlike Harold Budd.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:53pm geezerette:

Tony, this show!!! Wow, man!!!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:53pm Rich in Washington:

but I love this era of stuff, like James Tenney, etc. The cutting up and manipulating rock idols.
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:54pm geezerette:

Rich, it's like audio Pop Art.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/25/17 2:54pm JtotheK:

enjoyed the program - thanks Tony!
Avatar Tue. 4/25/17 2:55pm Rich in Washington:

Totally, Geezerette! I think that was the spirit of these types of tape works.

Thanks for showing up, everybody!! See you next week....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/25/17 2:58pm Nardo:
