Yes, Kurt, that's really exciting. I did not know of your noir interests. That's Philo's full-on passion in reading, publishing and cinema.

Pretty cool that two FMU DJs are displaying their other talents within a two-day timeframe. Ken will debut his stand-up act on Monday. Hope you NYC area listeners will take full advantage of your geographic good fortune.

Hello all! Man, missed the start due to cooking duties.

That beep sound is dead-on our smoke detector, which is overly sensitive and will yelp at dark toast.

Wow, sufficiently creepy at this speed.

No kidding
Avatar 3:43pm Honey Water:

Surprised I never recall hearing that Donovan at the time.
Avatar 3:43pm Rev. Turnip Druid (xBSI):

I often yelp at dark toast.
Avatar 3:45pm Honey Water:

@Rev: Admittedly, dark toast in this household is an unhappy accident, but still don't think it deserves a machine chiming in with its opinion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Caryn:

BTW, KG, nice work with writing the Symbol on the playlist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm northguineahills:

Hmmm, I have this Ayers record, and have never heard this song.

Kevin Ayers is perfect for Friday afternoooons

@northguineahills -- it's on a kind of recent reissue, I think

Somebody in there sounded kind of like Ivor Cutler.

Or was that Ivy Catnip?

ah yes what a way to start a threeday threeday
Avatar 3:58pm Rev. Turnip Druid (xBSI):

This bathroom tune is the greatest thing mankind has achieved. Seriously.
Avatar 3:58pm Honey Water:

This sounds like the sorts of songs written for some industry to play at a trade show -- like for Delta Faucets or something. Very similar to the Army Corps of Engineers theme.
Avatar 3:59pm Mr. Lowry:

Not Delta, American Standard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Caryn:

@HW: very close. Check out KG's link for the whole thing.

A somewhat brighter-sounding tune than Coil's "Broccoli"

I fully endorse this set.

this slow version of "A world without love" is most definitely a highlight of the set.

If someone out there had a single star fruit, what would you do with it in a recipe to best effect? Never used one in cooking before.

@HW: oh man, I've only used it in salads. Hmm...

anything by Glen Campbell is pure star fruit
Avatar 4:22pm Honey Water:

Kurt, do you have a song "I Hate My Judgmental Smoke Detector"?
Avatar 4:23pm Honey Water:

@Caryn: Raw then? Can it be braised or otherwise used to garnish some meat dish maybe?
  4:23pm burpage:

honey take batries out fer awhile give em a threeday pass
Avatar 4:24pm Honey Water:

Yeah, I know, I can find tons of such info searching online, but thought I'd pick the FS brains first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Caryn:

@HW: from Wiki: "In Southeast Asia, they are usually stewed in cloves and sugar, sometimes with apples. In China, they are cooked with fish. In Australia, they may be cooked as a vegetable, pickled, or made into jams. In Jamaica they are sometimes dried.
Unripe and sour type carambolas can be mixed with other chopped spices to make relishes in Australia. In the Philippines, unripe carambolas are eaten dipped in rock salt. In Thailand, they are cooked together with shrimp.
The juice from carambolas is also used in iced drinks, particularly the juice of the sour varieties. In Hawaii they are used to make sherbet, while in the Philippines they can be used as seasoning. In India, the juice is bottled for drinking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm DCE:

oh I remember this one from those trucker LPs they used to try to sell on the UHF channels in the early 80s!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm DCE:

do CONVOY next!!
Avatar 4:26pm Honey Water:

TY, Ms. Caryn! :) So fish, mostly, OK.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Mike East:

@HW - I got one of those when I was a kid (I was really into cooking shows and they always used star fruit for something). I didn't know what to do with it, though, so I think I just sliced it and used for garnish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm DCE:

"not sold in stores", much to my chagrin
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Mike East:

I think maybe it'd be good in like a Thai curry with coconut water or something.
Avatar 4:28pm Sem Chumbo:

Phantom 309 is another Red Sovine trucker song. ( Ghost at a lonely truck stop)Tom Waits did a fine cover.

I remember that one too, Sem Chumbo! good stuff. Trucker country is soooo underrated!
Avatar 4:29pm California man:

Avatar 4:29pm Honey Water:

So probably would work mixed with apple slices and sprinkled with chaat masala for a side relish/salad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm Caryn:

Saw a 4-disc set of tunes collected from old gas station C cassettes in the shop today. Too bad it cost too much.

Headbanging in process to DP!
Avatar 4:30pm California man:

@cheri pi I see we had similar reactions to the deep purple there.

We just watched a bromance / buddy film last night with machine love, "Robot and Frank."
Avatar 4:37pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

You know, just about when it gets dark outside this evening, I'll be on 128.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Caryn:

I love the story that Taylor locked himself in a cupboard to get the song to be the B-side to "Bohemian Rhapsody".

This is deeply disturbing.

@Caryn: Videodrome: James Woods kissing Debbie Harry thru a TV screen.

Mmm, decided to mix this sliced star fruit with Chinese 5 spice instead of chaat masala -- spice-alicious! Almost might say I *love* it. Now to add the apples and clementines.

@Caryn: I was thinking this weekend of clearing out ALL my favoriting stars. Was a little spooked when I went looking for a tune played this past week and top item in my search showed my own profile as the link because I had starred it! Eeesh, kinda creepy feeling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm northguineahills:

This one of those songs I haven't heard since I was in kindergarten, and used to make up the words. I got made up fun of by a group of teenagers when I was singing the wrong lyrics in a Wrangler store. I still remember that.
