"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

@ Aaron-Peace all. "Drugs are a counterfeit Holy Ghost experience"-Pastor Mark Gentry, circa 1996, Alamogordo, NM. I think that stuff should be legal, however, just like alcohol and tobacco.

I gotcha, John.
Maybe come the Spring marathon I can even up my swag pledge, if budget allows.

thanks Polyus! Always nice to read your name.

hi everyone.
  Fri. 10/6/17 10:17am Mark R:

Just my opinion, with no disrespect toward anyone else, but I think Friday mornings on FMU have improved immensely since you've re-joined the on-air lineup, John. Just my personal taste--your musical selections more closely align with my Friday morning vibe.
  Fri. 10/6/17 10:24am Warwick joe:

Quit playing great tracks I can’t get on Spotify. I’m gonna go broke on discogs. Great stuff this morning. I do miss Marty kicking off the weekend but you create a whole other mood to the start of the weekend. Loving it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/6/17 10:26am melinda:

I am enjoying the vibe too.
  Fri. 10/6/17 10:27am Mark R:

Marty's soul/party vibe sounds great on Saturday night, though!
Avatar Fri. 10/6/17 10:29am SheWolf:

I agree Mark. This Friday morning vibe pleases me.
Avatar Fri. 10/6/17 10:31am CeeDubbles:

Have a big yawn if you remember Phil Schaap's yapping on Fridays -12 years ago?
Avatar Fri. 10/6/17 10:33am CeeDubbles:

this reminds me of I Advance Masked
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/6/17 10:34am steveo:

Phil was on WFMU? No, I don't remember that. I must have just thought the cat bumped the tuning knob.
Avatar    Fri. 10/6/17 10:41am Rev. Turnip Druid:

was definitely a habitual FMU streamer 12 years ago (& beyond) .. the memory fades ..

Guten Tag!
John, if it works out for your show and your taste, could you play some Associates?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/6/17 10:45am Ken From Hyde Park:

Happy Friday, the weekend is coming!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/6/17 10:46am Cecile:

I do miss a good club banger show on Friday. Marty filled a lot of the void left in my heart by Billy Jam. I love Sheila, but I gotta have my needle on the record!
Avatar Fri. 10/6/17 10:47am CeeDubbles:

Yeah, I was wrong. wfmu.org... And to think we were working on radios!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/6/17 10:52am Polyus:

ooh, TMI there Shilpa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/6/17 10:53am steveo:

A report in the San Francisco Examiner describes [Shilpa] Ray's New Jersey upbringing as an Indian American from an immigrant family as contributing to her having a "scrappy" demeanor. As a youth, she was mistaken for an Iraqi and "pelted with beer cans" by hooligans. She dealt with restrictive parents who banned Western-themed music and learned to play the harmonium and piano beginning at age six. In her high school years, she became a stealth Goth and listened to music by punk rock bands such as The Cramps, Stooges and Joy Division. In her twenties, she moved to New York City and worked as a solo artist, singing a cappella at first and later accompanying herself on the harmonium. [wikipedia]

  Fri. 10/6/17 10:58am Mark R:

Billy Jam is still on at 7, Cecile--did he used to be on earlier?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/6/17 10:59am Cecile:

he used to be on from 3-6. That was a party. I like his one-hour show, but I miss all his free-wheeling remotes and theme shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/6/17 11:01am Ike:

Me too, Cecile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/6/17 11:02am Ken From Hyde Park:

Many great DJs on the station and there are other streams and archives and the Free Music Archive to explore. All good reasons to pledge generously.

With the debut of Mike Fiveash's blues show on Tuesdays, what other genres are left for WFMU? A program featuring nothing but concert drum solos, maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/6/17 11:24am steveo:

2010's pop?

@steveo - Yes, that's what I meant. Thank you.

Fiveash is a cool name.
Avatar    Fri. 10/6/17 11:32am BronwynB:

it makes me want to change my name to threebirch, or sixwillow
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/6/17 11:32am steveo:

Fiveash Family History. English: probably a topographic name for someone who lived by a group of five ash trees (Middle English ashe) or a habitational name from a place so named, for example Five Ashes in East Sussex.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/6/17 11:32am melinda:

Those would also be cool names.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/6/17 11:33am steveo:

makes sense!
