  12:23pm stingy d:

  12:24pm stingy d:

parq, i had a grilled cheese at eisenberg's yesterday. you never say hi though.
  12:25pm stingy d:

this is totally leading into diamanda galas by the way.
  12:26pm Parq:

Does anybody know - is the Acadamy in the East Village related to the one on 18th St? D, sorry, I had a bear of a day yesterday, I must not have been looking up when you wandered by.
  12:28pm Carmichael:

Stingy, get "Cornology", the compendium of all Bonzos albums, plus some single Neil Innes & Viv Stanshall solo stuff.
  12:28pm stingy d:

it's cool parq. and yes they are the same.
  12:28pm Bad R☺nald:

btw - If you dig the Bonzos this album's hilarious:
  12:30pm stingy's arteries:

  12:39pm Nat Roe:

  12:39pm Carmichael:

Stingy, do you mean Marilyn Wilson? I haven't listened to them since Surfin' Down the Swanee River.
  12:40pm annie:

  12:46pm Happy Listener:

scott, it's pronounced yah-mah-neh-koh (mountain cat)
  12:47pm Happy Listener:

great show, btw
  12:47pm Cecile:

Hunting Tigerse by the Bonzo's is mine and my husband's special song
  12:48pm Scott:

thanks happy - what'd i say? i dont' even remember
  12:48pm fishmonkeystew:

ooooh. I dig this.
  12:49pm jamief:

that early bing crosby track....something of a revelation
  12:49pm Happy Listener:

I think you said yah-me-nee-ko. I'm going to school you dj's in japanese pronounciation yet!
  12:52pm Carmichael:

Hunting Tigers Out in Indi-ah ... Great song.
  12:55pm All DJs Who Are Not 100% Fluent In Japanese:

Konichiwa Bitches
  1:03pm Bad R☺nald:

Hunting Tigers - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNmL1L3dF6g
  1:05pm Bad R☺nald:

I'm just doing the shimmy that's all!
  1:07pm stingy d:

yes carmichael, the same... sorry for the de-lay-de-lay-de-lay
  1:08pm Parq:

'Cile, what a lovely choice for "your song". A bunkmate of mine in camp in 1970 told me about the Bonzos and "Hunting Tigers", probably my first step on a long road that led me to WFMU.
  1:10pm stingy d:

my first step toward wanting a different set of musical values was ol dirty bastard. but i'm a young'n
  1:10pm ?:

when a man loves uhhhh wommunn,, aaaaauua augg yyyyaaaarr arrra uhhhu uh
  1:11pm Cecile:

I think so. The first song we ever danced to was "nights in white satin", but we rejected it in favor of "Tigers". We sang it (and still sing it) on car trips.
  1:23pm stingy d:

hufffff... here comes another long day
  1:29pm annie:

ok, what'd i miss?.......... hhmm. ok. hi all.
  1:32pm Cecile:

Jinx Lennon, who will stab you in the eye if he has to and TOTALLY Rules...
  1:33pm Carmichael:

You missed the Strangulated Beatoffs, Annie.
  1:34pm Cecile:

pyrolator? Is that the band from German in the 80s?
  1:35pm Cecile:

  1:39pm north guinea hills:

How could you not know about Twin Peaks? Even my gf, who is in her mid-20s and from Mexico loves Twin Peaks. Then again, she's a David Lynch fiend.
  1:40pm Cecile:

ngh, I don't can't even get wound up about that anymore. It doesn't even seem like there's any kind of common pop culture anymore- just little cults and fandoms...
  1:40pm annie:

charm..... i'm bummed. totally...
  1:41pm annie:

ok, folks, gonna hoof it to another exciting episode of 1001 nights..
  1:47pm Kevin in BayRidge:

Parq & Cecile,
Sad thang is... I bonded with the Bonzo's right on commercial FM (WPLJ circa early 70's) compliments of Scelsa & company.

Different frakkin woild!
Viva FMU for filling an ancient void!!!
  1:48pm stingy d:

wfmu keeping the cult in culture. otherwise i guess its monolithture
  1:49pm Bad R☺nald:

"Front loader you know my need is urgent. Front loader I've got all my detergent!" - N. Innes
  1:53pm Cecile:

Kevin in BR, i hear you.

I grew up with crappy AM in the 70s, but they would still let the hippies play prog, AOR deep tracks (usually better than the singles) and punk records at night. Had a huge influence on me.
  1:57pm Carmichael:

I will always love Twin Peaks. In fact, I saw Blue Velvet for the umpteenth time last night. The lines are almost as good as those you'll find in Heathers or Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  1:58pm BSI:

oh sweet baby monkey god, thankies for the vitamin-like drone here...
  2:01pm stingy d:

i'm a baby and i remember watching twin peaks as a little dude. just resting my eyes. and i've been through many a twin peaks marathon.
  2:01pm Carmichael:

As for crappy radio, I'll never forget the set I heard on KROY as a 10 year old (and a foreigner):

Smokey Robinson, "Tears of a Clown"
Sammy Davis, Jr., "I Gotta Be Me"
Sgt. Barry Sadler, "The Ballad of the Green Berets"

After that experience, I vowed to stay up late and surf the night-time AM waves for faraway exotic music, instead of the local crap. I found XPRS just across the Mexican border.

That was my first alternative music experience.
  2:01pm Ike:

This is like a creepier, homemade take on the Johnny Cash remix by Apparat, and it sounds almost like it's straight out of the wonderful Twin Peaks.

Cecile, thanks for spelling 70s correctly. As for the Bonzos, well, they're just stuck getting spell-raped forever I guess.
  2:03pm Cecile:

so you heard it, you heard it, you heard it on the X, Carm?
  2:03pm Carmichael:

Ike, thank you for your never-ending apostrophe vigilance and your service to our language.
  2:04pm stingy d:

ike, trstu em yuo aer teh olny spel-rapist out there
  2:04pm Carmichael:

That is EXACTLY right, Cecile!
  2:05pm lolcat:

stingee i liek ur speling
  2:05pm Cecile:

Nice, Carm!
  2:06pm Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  2:07pm Cecile:

I think only you and I like that Glands of External Secretion record, Scott.
  2:12pm Cecile:

I think Odessa is possibly the strangest record made by a major rock band that doesn't descend into complete contract-voiding noise. I need to pick this one up
  2:13pm Sean Daily:

"Edison" is probably the best piece of non-commercial commercial music I've ever heard.
  2:14pm stingy d:

i've always hesitated on getting odessa. maybe i should???
  2:15pm G.:

did broadcast/transmitter just crash to white noise? or is it my equipment here at home?
  2:15pm Cecile:

Yeah. Exactly.

Me, too, stinge.

I think I have buy it now because every time someone plays a track, I go "WTF?" But in a good way.
  2:16pm Ike:

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, are you fixing the dog whistle on 91.1?! Are you fixing it? Huh? Huh? Oh boy! I AM EXCITED! I will be able to listen on a Walkman again!
  2:17pm G.:

it came back for two seconds, then white noise again
  2:17pm Ike:

That is, assuming all goes well. If that's what you're actually doing.
  2:17pm Cecile:

"I got a rubber, he's my new frown?"
  2:18pm G.:

you're back lol
  2:20pm Ike:

Hey G., did they fix the stereo dog whistle? I can't get the air signal here at work so I can't check.
  2:20pm C:

is there a little howlin wolf comp out or something? i've heard him played a bunch this week and would love to pick something up. i was only able to buy a couple of 7" after a show but want more!
  2:26pm G.:

not sure; i'm a ways from the transmitter, so sometimes when listening over-air i hear fuzz and glitches come and go at some times of day -- someone else could probably comment better on sound issues??
  2:26pm Sean Daily:

This Little Howlin' Wolf rocks in too many ways to count.
  2:27pm Glenn L:

C, there are two comps of old LHW 7"'s available thru Here See/ True Vine. I think that's what the label is called.
It's the Nautical Almanac people. Really really great stuff!
Especially - vol. 1
  2:32pm C:

Awesome! Thanks, Glenn.
  2:32pm stingy d:

ike, spell zarawuhtssictluy
  2:33pm Glenn L:

You got it, C. Enjoy!
  2:34pm Cecile:

good work, Glenn!
  2:37pm Glenn L:

Thanks, Cecile. I had a great time.
Thee oh Sees are currently rocking my world.
I think I have a NEW favorite band.
  2:40pm Cecile:

Isn't that great when it happens?
Every time I think I get too jaded to follow music, there's alway someone new or undiscovered or unfamiliar that gets my interest piqued again
  2:41pm Kevin in BayRidge:

Being a teenager with "a taste for the bizarre"-FZ, in the Metro NY area, just as FM had a short greening period worked out ok. As long as FMU finally came to the rescue!... Otherwise,who the hell knows what would have happened!!!
  2:42pm Cecile:

Yes, I have a secret fondness for Billy Squier.
  2:43pm Cecile:

a friend of mine would always pick out "everybody wants one" for his punk rock friends in the 80s. When they'd go "dude, that song rocks.! It sounds familiar." Then he would drop the bomb.
  2:43pm dc pat:

  2:44pm Doug from DC:

He's "stroking" our pop sensibilities.
  2:44pm Ike:

  2:45pm Cecile:

I know Kevin.

I know I quote FotC a lot here, but I read in an interview where FotC's Jemaine Clement saying something like, "when i was little I didn't think I liked music. Turned out I had never heard any good music."

that was a lot of our experiences here, I gather.
  2:46pm Cecile:

thanks for throwing a bone to us ex-heshers, Scott.
  2:47pm Scott:

Good ol' reliable Ike.
  2:47pm Pearly Sweets:

Unga Bunga... 2 hour and fifty minute meeting... I am done with you! Second long ass meeting this week.
  2:48pm dc pat:

Ho jeeze...now I REALLY can't concentrate. This visitations/BB song kills me. Puts me somewhere in the vicinity of a movie like Lilith and For a Few Dollars More....
  2:49pm Doug from DC:

Oh, I'm psyched. Just secured a ticket to see Throbbing Gristle on Thursday, and got two days off work to do it.
  2:51pm dc pat:

this is my favorite song on Earth right now.
  2:52pm Elton John & Neil Sedaka:

  2:53pm Scott:

me too pat, kinda makes me wanna die and go with it.
  2:54pm dc pat:

Scott: Exactly! so, where do I get that again? Do I have to send a telegram to Big Blood or something?
  2:54pm Parq:

Is Kev from BR still here? I started listening to PLJ just a couple of *months* before they went playlist. I switched to 'NEW-FM, who by 1979 were running the naked blonde commercial I mentioned during Trouble's show. Then it was college radio, and ultimately, WFMU all the way. (Sorry, Freiwilliger, I know you don't like overly effusive fans, but what can I say?)
  2:57pm scott:

pat, yeah, i think so. you can email em thru their myspace
  2:58pm Cecile:

this grouper track was beautiful
  2:59pm dc pat:

ok, right, they're "friends" of mine...
  2:59pm Ike:

Am I *that* reliable? Would you have thought I'd like Trent's show? I have cheesy mainstream guilty pleasures, but nobody at FMU ever hits on them except for Trent. Does reliable also mean predictable? That's troubling. I need to bury my ego under a damn fine slice of cherry pie, dammit.
  3:00pm Sean Daily:

Yeth! THCREAM, my loverly! THCREAM FOR YOUR LIFE! Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha...
  8:06pm billyjam:

as many before me have said Thank God for the Archives! Another good show Scott -
