Evening/Morning all...Love this- has a "If I Could Only Remember My Name" vibe to me.

Great start, Jeff.

"You-hoo! The monitors!"

I just got a new deodorant made in Olympia WA, now I smell like a Beat Happening fan

I love the playlist homepage. When I listen this show I imagine sitting out by a lake with bone fire on a warm summer night. So relaxing...
  Mon. 2/5/18 12:20am Jeff Conklin:

Praise to artist Dane Patterson for that image!

Grammar needs some work. Sorry about that.

No grammar police here, Rory. Just 80s Dead cops

Ha!
  Mon. 2/5/18 12:27am MONEYBAG$:

Popular 80s SF band Millions of Dead Cops?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/5/18 12:27am Jeff Conklin:

I think MDC were from Texas?
  Mon. 2/5/18 12:29am MONEYBAG$:

I think they were called the Stains in Texas and then moved/changed their name
  Mon. 2/5/18 12:34am Agent Peter:

Was an interlude way before the 80's there Cap'n Defensive. Since you did a fine job with the last one this one should have been duck soup given the venue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/5/18 12:36am Jeff Conklin:

@Peter: lol
  Mon. 2/5/18 12:38am Agent Peter:

A very roundabout way to request Easy Wind if I didn't already know that you don't take requests so that's definitely what it was that I wasn't doing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/5/18 12:39am Jeff Conklin:

@Peter: ALMOST had EW on the playlist for tonight....No joke
  Mon. 2/5/18 12:40am MONEYBAG$:

I just had that in my head too, WTF...saw someone made a Stone Jack Baller t shirt

I was endeavoring to channel that Springers Ballroom show, has an excellent EW. Some exceptional versions of a few others too.
  Mon. 2/5/18 12:49am Eric Hat:

Nothing quite like burning some ridiculous amounts of Green Hojari and White Copal on a few hits. I swear by the end of the night you can see that everything is ‘drenched’...only word I know to describe whatever ghosty thing I’m seeing. Definitely weakens the veil.
  Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/5/18 12:49am yippie:

the hippies are dead now I'm a yippie

Jeff! Yr on!
  Mon. 2/5/18 12:55am Eric Hat:

Loving the show. And wasn’t being sarcastic in the slightest...
  Mon. 2/5/18 12:58am Konstantinov:

christ that Matt Lajoie was amazing .. reminded me of the ol days when Total would blow my multi-tracked guitar mind .. two tapes were left on the Flower Room bandcamp .. now there is one, folks..
  Mon. 2/5/18 1:03am brycepunk1:

Gotta go to bed, but I LOVED your set so far tonight. Really hit the spot in ways I can not fully explain. But I have tp say thank you!
  Mon. 2/5/18 1:07am miketp:

Good night, Bryce!

Hello, everyone else!

Damn, I missed a band called Mr. Fox! I'll have to dig in the archives later!
  Mon. 2/5/18 1:15am Eric Hat:

One of my favorite early crate thrifting discoveries...this Mark-Almond.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/5/18 1:22am Jeff Conklin:

@Fox: Its a good one.

@Erc: Same but my Dad gave me a heads up on it.

@Douglas: Thanks!
  Mon. 2/5/18 1:23am Eric Hat:

Nice Jeff.
  Mon. 2/5/18 1:24am Eric Hat:

I just realized, no Dark Star at the top of the second hour?
  Mon. 2/5/18 1:25am Eric Hat:

I guess I haven’t really been around for a bit...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/5/18 1:26am Jeff Conklin:

Hmm. Dark Star only opens 1 out of every 6 second sets....
  Mon. 2/5/18 1:27am Eric Hat:

Haha! Nice.
  Mon. 2/5/18 1:27am Eric Hat:

That’s a ballpark figure tho, yes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/5/18 1:28am Jeff Conklin:

I just made it up
  Mon. 2/5/18 1:30am Eric Hat:

Yeah. Cause I’m sure there was practically a year straight throughout which you kept that fire burning...
  Mon. 2/5/18 1:31am Eric Hat:

Honestly something to look forward to every week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/5/18 1:31am Jeff Conklin:

I like to mix it up and keep you all on your toes..

  Mon. 2/5/18 2:14am Mark R:

Mike, I was very pleasantly surprised to learn that Dannie had started playing drums with them.
  Mon. 2/5/18 2:17am Mark R:

Since "American Beauty" wasn't released until November, this audience was hearing some of these songs for the first time!

I will say that the game was unusual

  Mon. 2/5/18 2:38am Mark R:

The Eagles winning their first championship since 1960 is unusual. A backup quarterback beating a Hall of Famer is unusual. The Patriots losing a Super Bowl is unusual. To name a few unusual occurrences. I'm sure there were many. How many horses did the Eagles fans punch, is the question.
  Mon. 2/5/18 2:54am Mark R:

Cars start to lose value the minute they leave the lot. The value of FMU continually increases as you are culturally enriched. Your IQ spikes. You'll have more energy. Your spouses and girl/boyfriends will notice a renewed spark. FMU donations pay for themselves many times over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/5/18 2:57am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks for listening, all. Take care.
