"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.)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/15/19 9:22am VincentNifigance:

At the risk of contradicting myself and piling more work on him, I think Clay deserves his own show more in line with the Dusty aesthetic, he does so much I think it's unfortunate he's limited in his ability to play the music he really wants to play. Yes, I know that might mean Slipknot, Phil Collins and Starcastle, but are we not Freeform?

have y'all heard the live Sabbath from Asbury Park early 70s maybe 75? it really opened my eyes to what their live show was really like. loud and amazing.

love the show guys. I'm liking the double dj.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/15/19 9:33am Ike:

@vincent, free-form doesn't mean just anybody is allowed on the air to play whatever they want. My terrible college radio station was like that. It was wretched. A station like WFMU can only exist if somebody is carefully curating and gatekeeping who can get in, and keeping OUT the people who just play Phil Collins and Slipknot. Just my opinion!

I love when he plays tracks from 81, my birth year. Its hard to get the 70s to 80s musics scene but JA has clued me in, in his edgy but minimal way. I love the Clay too!

Well, hats off to JA for playing Patto. Ollie Halsall was years and years ahead of his time. He was also a classically trained vibraphone player, and got so fed up with the 'guitar hero' tag he only played piano on the next Patto album. A lost rock genius by any measure. Thanks JA.

X.Ray did not try out for the morning show. There were three or four weeks of tryouts -- two shows each for however many people it was. 15?

Thick as a Brick is a great concept album, just like mother's song Billie the Mountain, parodies that end up besting the thing they are chiding.

Yesterday, someone on another playlist told me out of nowhere that the movie Bohemian Rhapsody sucked out loud. I disagreed, saying I enjoyed it. The person told me I was an idiot.

defining whether a type of organization (or disorganization) is "masculine" or "feminine" is a symptom of a desire to show approval or disapproval and thereby boost the definer's status

that's right Rachel! yin & yang are how it goes. if you look at the symbols of yin/yang, you'll notice there's a bit of yin in the yang & a bit of yang in the yin. one becomes the other. it's a lovely concept.

I think that's a bit too rigidly Hegelian, I don't think we exist in this dialectic, but I don't have a good alternative since we love to think in these kinds binaries, and I don't think I've ever read a theorist who has ever produced a satisfactory response to the antagonism vis-a-vis Hegel, though they certainly have tried, its just a bit too much taking down masters house with his tool. (I hope this does not come off as an attack, more just musing/tossing a thought out there)

@LindaLee, @Cmurtha: I think we tend to classify things along binary lines out of a kind of laziness (two is one more than one, that's enough to divide everything up) but also because we do like antagonism and opposition (fight! fight!), when our experiences and organizations are richer and more complex
