Welcome to The Avant Bluto, with Jeff Popeye.

Morning, PSS

Hey Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07am pacific standard simon:

Back in the 90s, Jeff Buckley days, I tried to fuck with my co-workers by playing Tim Buckley on the work sound system. It ended with them fucking with me by asking me who that woman who was singing was.
Avatar 3:08am Jeff Conklin:

Morning, Joe!

@PSS: I find it very troublesome that Jeff is given such exhalted status while the superior work of his father is neglected. #FuckThe90s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15am pacific standard simon:

@Jeff - Yes, I know, although I suspect that time has been (and will continue to be) balancing the scale.

what up conklin
  3:19am pierre (from the app, this is why there isn't any:

Taking my commuting train, bonjour Jeff and listeners !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19am pacific standard simon:

@Jeff - Regarding my comment on the previous show: Will we be hearing any Dan Hicks tonight?
Avatar 3:20am Jeff Conklin:

What up, John!!

Hey, Pierre!
Avatar 3:24am Jeff Conklin:

No Hicks in tonight's mix. Sorry

  3:29am todd burke:

hi jeff can you spin some pere ubu please. im listening in warrenton Virginia. ha ha. been a listener since 77. john the rookie was cool.
Avatar 3:30am Jeff Conklin:

Hey, Todd. Thanks so much for tuning in. Unfortunately, I don't take requests and I don't play Pere Ubu.

  3:39am bluesong:

you guys know you can play your own music right

enjoy this weird ride
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46am pacific standard simon:

I just used the WFMU Artist/Band Browser to determine that if I want to hear the late, great Dan Hicks, I should be listening to Irene Trudel or Tony Coulter. Guess I can wait until Tuesday.
  3:47am bluesong:

but seriously, are you gonna play some Tom Rush or what
Avatar 3:47am Jeff Conklin:

Did he pass away, Simon?
Avatar 3:48am Jeff Conklin:

You guys are bustin my balls hard this morning. I like it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49am pacific standard simon:

Throat and liver cancer, Jeff. I miss him a lot.
Avatar 3:50am Jeff Conklin:

Aww, man. I'll be honest, I've never given him a fair shot. Will remedy that this week
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57am pacific standard simon:

I remember sitting in my 15-year-old bedroom, with the full moon blasting through my window, listening to Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks on KSAN late at night.
  4:02am bluesong:

playing the things he wants to hear. you guys catch that? I think he's talking to us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06am pacific standard simon:

@bluesong - Sure. But chat is nothing without dialog.

@Jeff - Bola Se-tey
  4:08am bluesong:

just messin around :)
Avatar 4:08am Jeff Conklin:

@Simon: Thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08am joeray:

The Buchla 200 is a rare synthesizer. There was one on EBAY years ago, I was curious what else this seller was offering, so I clicked on his "store" and found parts of a NASA space shuttle for sale.
Avatar 4:10am Tusalava:

Sandy Denny is so perfect right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14am Alejandroool:

wowee, this is great Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15am Alejandroool:

dozin off to this in headphones like an audio blanket... take care all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15am pacific standard simon:

This Japanese thing is pretty mellow....
Avatar 4:17am Jeff Conklin:

Night, Alejandroool
  4:19am Steve-O:

@Alejandroool: See ya later! Enjoy your rest. =)
  4:22am greysquad:

sandy denny and judee sill all in one set? that's pretty great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27am pacific standard simon:

Searching Bola Sete at The Inn Of The Beginning, in Cotati, where I remember him playing, led me to all sorts of wonderful and regretful shows that I wish I'd come out for.
Avatar 4:29am Jeff Conklin:

Did you see Neil and Crazy Horse there, Simon?
  4:29am greysquad:

I always thought that the "pops" and "snaps" you here on vinyl records reminded me of the sounds you hear whilst sitting next to a fireplace hearth... but try telling that to some ebay/discogs buyer... they ain't hearing it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31am pacific standard simon:

Nope. I regret not seeing The Holy Modal Rounders there the most, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36am pacific standard simon:

I used to hand letter the ads for that place for the Sonoma County Bugle. The band names stick in my mind.
  4:36am Steve-O:

BTW, am I sensing a '70s theme here, guys? =)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am pacific standard simon:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44am pacific standard simon:

I used to hang out with my best friend in 9th grade, and he would push this album on me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46am pacific standard simon:

1971, I think.
Avatar 4:49am Tusalava:

Oh hey, Fraser and DeBolt.

I got a preview today of a single that didn't make it on the album due to some odd permission issues. It's gorgeous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50am pacific standard simon:

45 years? Jaysus, I should go kill myself!
  4:53am Lunch:

awesome good guitar
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54am pacific standard simon:

Yeah, the Michael Gulezian was as good as any of the John Fahey.
Avatar 5:22am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Good morning Jeff and Ghetto peeps. Looks like I've missed some great music already. As usual I'm catching the mellow folkiness at the end of the show first, then going back to the archives for the earlier stuff (which looks mellower than usual this week).
Avatar 5:26am Jeff Conklin:

Yeah things were pretty mellow this week.

  5:41am Lunch:

I normally tune away to NPR at 5 AM...but not on Mondays
Avatar 5:42am Jeff Conklin:

Awww. Thanks, Lunch
  5:45am lunch:

where else can you get great guitar music on the radio today
  5:49am Eric Hat:

Tis a beautiful thing.
Avatar 5:55am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks for listening, all. Have a great day or days
Avatar 6:00am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Thanks Jeff. A great start to the week.
