"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.)

Wednesday, May 25th, 6am - 9am: "The Systematic Special" w/ Joseph Pope & Joe Carducci
Author and former SST Records partner Joe Carducci returns to WFMU, this time with Joe Pope (of the band Angst/ former head of Systematic) to revisit the business history of independent record distribution circa 1978-1988. They’ll try to tell the history of that era's music from the business side, and play three hours of 45s that Systematic once paid a dollar for and tried to sell to record shops around the country for $1.30.
