Morning, KP and to all people who may come in...

Good morning Jeff. Here for a little bit...

Hey, Adam
dave b.:

I've been a WFMU listener for almost 30 years. Besides a few rare plays from Bob Brainen and Jesse Jarnow, I think that you may be the only other dj on the station to play the Grateful Dead. Very nice. I was stunned hearing those first notes of Estimated Prophet.
I usually don't do much listening at this hour and I am happy to have stumbled on to your show. Nice playlists. Its moments like these that have kept me a faithful listener and supporter. All the best.
Longtime/lifetime GD fan.

Jeff Conklin:

@Dave B: I often play the Dead as they are near and dear to my heart and they are spiritual forebears to a lot of modern music I play whether those artists see the connection or not. Thanks for tuning in.

Nate K interviewed Jesse Jarnow re: Grateful Dead book he wrote. Pretty good stuff.

Jeff Conklin:

@Smilty69: Cool. Jesse and I go way back. Reading the book now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45am

Last week someone mentioned Phish on the comments board. Jeff, have you ever played them on your show?
Avatar 3:45am
Jeff Conklin:

@Smilty69: No I haven't and its very unlikely i ever will
dave b.:

Those connections and segues are the mark of an artist. It's all too often that G/D get clumped into the jamband camp and stopped there. It's great to see the dots connected to different genres and more exploratory stuff.
If you get a chance sometime, listen to a song from Bill Frisel, Joe Lavano and Phil Motian called "Cambodia" It has a similar Dark Star vibe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51am

I never got into Phish but I do think Billy Breathes is beautiful album.
Avatar 3:52am
Jeff Conklin:

@Smilty: they are a great band in many ways but not AG material.

I wish more people realized the Dead are much more than a jam band. I cant tell you how many times people say they wouldn't like them because they don't like jam bands

I am also blown away by how many "deadheads" put Garcia on such a pedestal. Without Bob it wouldn't have been the the Dead
Avatar 4:12am
Jeff Conklin:

@Spoonys: Re: jam band/Dead thing: I've been amazed at how things have changed in that regard. People are a lot more open to them as great songwriters than they were 15 years ago...

Sem Chumbo:

Good morning.J.C., and all. Along for the rest of the ride, watching the river flow.

@Jeff that is really good to hear actually. Also fun fact on the subject of Phish....I say fun fact, but don't hold me to it...I am pretty sure at one point a Phish concert held the world record for most nude people photographed at one time.
Avatar 4:23am
Jeff Conklin:

@Spoonys: That's true and I was there (not nude)

John in Texas:

Good morning! I dropped in as our DJ was speaking. Fortunate to hear that version of, "When I Paint My Masterpiece." Nice to see DJ Drone Beard in the Ghetto: )

I would imagine it is hard to forget a day like that
Avatar 4:35am
Jeff Conklin:

Morning, John.

@Spoonys: It was at one of their festivals. I didn't see the photo shoot and I think I'm better for it...
Avatar 4:38am

Grabbed the full Lake Mary digital discography on Bandcamp the other day and have been binge listening ever since. Such a great artist. This album sent me down the road.
Avatar 4:40am
Jeff Conklin:

@Bentangle: This album sent you or hearing Lake Mary on this program did? ;)
Avatar 4:42am
Scraps deSelby:

h'lo Jeff. It's nice to hear these musicians at night, wake up and go to sleep hearing them. I'm now in the hospital / rehab healing from a fractured hip, and it's even more nice to hear WFMU and Avant Ghetto. Thank you.
Avatar 4:44am
Scraps deSelby:

p.s.: Don Cherry in free jazz mode is awesome.

occasionally i'll hear something on WFMU that really grabs me and forces me to stop what i'm doing and take a note of who the artist is. it keeps turning out to be lake mary recently.

it's kinda like the opposite of that nick cave quote about the RHCP.

Jeff Conklin:

Hey, Scraps, hope you're ok and that we may help in the recovery process a little bit!

Jeff Conklin:

@josh: That's great to hear! It's an amazing, multi-faceted project...

no kidding jeff - i see there's a collaborator credit on this one, but it's quite different from the other tracks i've heard.
Avatar 4:48am
Jeff Conklin:

Guys, I think this is my favorite set I've ever done.

Just completed a 15 kms run in the sunshine in the Dutch countryside with The Avant Ghetto on my cans. The best show ever! Thanks for the jams Jeff

Jeff Conklin:

Aww, thanks so much, Ajay. Deeply appreciated..

@jeff: Fair cop, his track on Songs To Fill The Air was my introduction. I tip my hat to you good sir.

Moring Jeff, G-R-E-A-T show!
Greetings from Spain

its a fair cop but i still say society is to blame

@Bentangle: Ha. In all fairness, the great Jeffrey Davison (Shrunken Planet) hipped me to him

laughs: Kate Carr's album title "It was a time of laboured metaphors" is great

Thank you, anonymous Spaniard!

Not so anonymous...

@jeff: You introduced me to the great Jon Collin as well. Oh-so-grateful for that tip-off.

Weeeird, I posted that before I saw you were playing JC ...

Jeff Conklin:

Collin never lets me down with his music. Another artist who is constantly evolving, seeking new paths...

the music speaks for itself anyway
Avatar 5:22am

Tuned in too late for those 12-string beauties by AP <3 love it! Will the recording be available over the Free Music Archive?
Avatar 5:24am
Jeff Conklin:

It'll be available on my archive ;)
Avatar 5:28am

That stuff is great! Glad you made these recordings possible!
John in Texas:

Jeff, have you ever played anything by, The Doubling Riders before?
George from Gravesend:

Good Morning. Great hearing a banjo as the sun is rising.

Jeff Conklin:

@John: Don't know them.

@George: Thanks for listening

Sem Chumbo:

Glad to hear Dylan, especially enjoyed the *When I Paint My Masterpiece* earlier.
Listened to days of Dead from the Internet Archives while on a giant and very dull accounting project. Under-appreciated and under-credtited musical influence, as you say.
