Music behind DJ:
Bodega Pop 

Intro   Options

Bodega Pop Live 



DJ Shadow  Best Foot Forward [Alternate Version]   Options Endtroducing... (Deluxe Ed) Excessive Ephemera [Disc 2]  2005  USA | Endtroducing... of course came out in 1996, the first full year that Other Music was opened. (They opened Dec 1995.) I found this terrific "deluxe edition" used there, somewhat recently  0:04:30 (Pop‑up)
The Raincoats  Balloonacy   Options The Kitchen Tapes  1998  United Kingdom | I think this is the first thing I ever bought at Other Music, but I'm not entirely sure. I moved to NYC in summer of 1997, so it's possible I didn't get to Other Music for 6 months to a year ...  0:06:03 (Pop‑up)
Joey Boy  ยกมือขึ้น (Demo) [Put Up Your Hands]   Options Sorry I'm Happy  2004  Thailand | Bought this and two other Thai hip-hop CDs maybe two weeks before Other closed, in the "used" section, although they still had shrinkwrap on them  0:10:03 (Pop‑up)
Tsehaytu Beraki  Sport Malet   Options Selam [Disc 1]  2004  Ethiopia | Bought this one used  0:13:33 (Pop‑up)

Maryam  Wahdi (وحدي)   Options Mesh Baghanny  212  Egypt | This is one of the most beautiful CDs I've ever bought -- I mean the cover and insides, though the music is wonderful too -- imported from Egypt  0:33:35 (Pop‑up)
Franck Vigroux + Matthew Bourne  Radio Stars   Options Radioland: Radio-Activity Revisited  2015  France | This album is insanely great -- I bought it originally to play on the Krafterwerk show I did, but did I? No, I did not. These are not cover versions so much as homages to the tracks ... super-love for this album  0:39:42 (Pop‑up)
Alice Bag  Modern Day Virgin Sacrifice   Options Alice Bag  2016  USA | This CD, Bag's first solo album ever (!?), I picked up on the day it was released, June 24, the day before Other Music closed.

Hey, Gary and all! Sad occasion for the show, but I know this will be an amazing 3 hours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Gary:

Hey there, James! Well, I can't admit to being an especially adventurous shopper there, but I did pick some gems up over the year
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm melinda:

hi Gary & James & friends yet to arrive
Avatar 7:01pm steve:

hey Gary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm Gary:

Welcome, Melinda and Steve!
Avatar 7:02pm ndbob:

Evening Gary, James Melinda , Steve! from a friend who has just arrived:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Gary:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm listener james from westwood:

Was reading a paperback printed in 1971 over dinner and am now discovering my hands have that wonderful old-book smell on them.
Avatar 7:07pm ndbob:

What book James?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm listener james from westwood:

"Honor Thy Father," Gay Talese. Nabbed it in the used section of my local B&N.
Avatar 7:11pm ndbob:

I've forced myself to cut down on book buying a little - have at least 50 I haven't read
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Gary:

Do fingers pick up the old book smell? I actually never noticed that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm melinda:

I like this Raincoats.
Avatar 7:15pm ndbob:

Kind of Gary
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Gary:

I love that whole Raincoats album, Melinda -- so wonderful. Speaking of wonderful, I can't even tell you how insanely thrilled I was to find this Joey Boy CD there a couple of weeks ago.
Avatar 7:17pm ndbob:

Joey Boy is good - not much of a hip-hop fan - I like the international stuff better though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm listener james from westwood:

I hear ya ndbob. My to-be-read pile is a foot deep but I couldn't resist a huge chunk of New Journalism for only $3—same price as 45ish years ago!
Avatar 7:17pm steve:

OM is my fav record store of all time, and I'm not just saying that. I would posit that Other Music may have had THE BEST used section in all of record store in history...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Gary:

They had an amazing used section, definitely -- and lots more imports (from places like Thailand!) than other stores
Avatar 7:21pm ndbob:

@James I'm afraid to walk into bookstores sometimes - record shows even more so
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm listener james from westwood:

Hell, the town library just started a summer program where they drop a ticket in a jar for you for each book you take out, with a drawing for a basket of cheer near Labor Day. How am I supposed to get any work done with that sort of borrowing impetus?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm melinda:

Gary is Kitchen Tapes the album w/the cover of Lola? Don't know a ton of Raincoats songs but I liked that one too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Gary:

No, I'm not sure what album that's from -- I have an MP3, but I think I got it from Mr. Fab's blog
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Gary:

@Melinda, it looks like Lola is from their first album, The Raincoats, from 1979
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm melinda:

Thanks Gary.
Avatar 7:40pm hyde:

hello bodegians
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Gary:

Avatar 7:52pm steve:

Avatar 7:53pm steve:

where on earth do they keep finding these undiscovered LRD demos and bootlegs
Avatar 7:53pm hyde:

@Steve there *are* seemingly endless numbers of them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Gary:

The liner notes for this one say that this selection was floating around for a while in bootleg fashion. This has apparently been remastered. This is the shortest track on it, and they're all amazing, but holy bejeebus, there's a 20+ minute track that is ultra mind-blowing
Avatar 7:56pm steve:

I had a bunch... donated em all to the station a few years ago. The one troubling thing is I'm pretty sure most are CDrs and so won't live forever.
Avatar 7:59pm ndbob:

excellent first hour Gary! catch the rest later
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm northguineahills:

I think that's called album oriented rock?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm northguineahills:

Bryce plays full cds often enough on his show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Gary:

Hi NGH! Ah, good to know -- maybe I will be less squeamish about it
Avatar 8:11pm hyde:

Bryce had a six track, three hour show a month or two back. it was awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Gary:

@Hyde -- he played 6 tracks off each album?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Gary:

I guess I always felt that, because Tony doesn't archive Tape Hiss out of respect to the artists that maybe it was sort of a thing
Avatar 8:14pm hyde:

no, his entire show was comprised of just six tracks (not les rallizes denudes tracks, other stuff)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Gary:

Avatar 8:16pm hyde:

i like everything i've heard from this Träd Gräs Och Stenar thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm northguineahills:

I've seen Bryce do a 3 track three hour show before. He did do the station ID during each track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Gary:

It's another beautifully packaged thing, with a booklet that I haven't yet had a chance to read, but look forward to
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm listener james from westwood:

Sound policy on the Birkin entry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Gary:

@LJfW: It is a policy that has served me well!
Avatar 8:20pm hyde:

@ngh oh man, i must've missed that one. that sounds great. i love his show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm northguineahills:

I've dared Kurt to do the same, and he came close. I once had a three hour slot on Free109point.org, and played Philip Glass's Einstein on the Beach. I went over, as I was the last dj that evening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm northguineahills:

It's better to be in the Red Room then Red Rum.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Ike:

Sounding very fine there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Gary:

Mr. Ike!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm melinda:

World Badfinger would have been a fun category.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm coelacanth:

hi Gary and Bodegaroonies

This show giving me the happiez and the sadz. Hi, Gary
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Gary:

  9:16pm Jeff g.:

(Ps. If I may, this Sunday's D:O will be about three-songs long.)
Avatar 9:17pm hyde:

i need to bust out Longing for the Past and opika Pende again. those are both so great
Avatar 9:17pm hyde:

@Jeff G nice! i think i can catch this one since it's a long weekend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Gary:

Ohhh, looking forward to it, Jeff!
  9:22pm Jeff g.:

Catching up on comments...did y'all reals that CRAY-ZEE Gay Talese story on the NYer a few weeks back? About the hotel voyeur? Bonkers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Gary:

YES, I read that -- totally mind-blowing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm melinda:

Nice electro.
  9:26pm Jeff g.:

I still feel unclean from it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Gary:

Did this South African comp get much play when it came out? It's terrific
  9:27pm Jeff g.:

Currently reading a history of DARPA, the secret US military/tech group. Making me feel dirty in a different way...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Gary:

One thing I am looking forward to when I'm in London in a couple of weeks is going to Honest Jon's store ... that and the post-Brexit exchange rate
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Gary:

I don't know about DARPA ... what would you suggest I read in shorter form about them? (On the internet preferably)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm melinda:

There was a podcast episode about that motel voyeur but I forget which one it was. Creepy.
  9:32pm Leather:

Thought it was a built to spill song for a second
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Gary:

Howdy, Leather!
Avatar 9:32pm hyde:

whoa, this is super cool
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 9:33pm Jeff Golick:

See if you can go to Cafe Oto, Gary. Bound to be something great on, and they have a fab store, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm Ike:

I read that New Yorker article too. Spooky and unforgettable. Some of the letters to the editor in response were scathing regarding the ethics of the reporter, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm Gary:

Writing that in my notebook now, Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Gary:

Oh, man -- I missed the letters that followed
  9:36pm Leather:

I usually listen as I push carts in the target parking lot at night. Thai music especially tends to get me the oddest looks from customers.
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 9:37pm Jeff Golick:

Missed the letters, too, though for sure Talese is implicated in a way that is, at the very least, pretty icky.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm Gary:

Causing glances askance since 2014
Avatar 9:38pm hyde:

i hadn't heard about this Soul Jazz comp. it looks killer!
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 9:38pm Jeff Golick:

No good knowledge re DARPA articles, Gary. Sorry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm Gary:

It's amazing, Hyde -- you can see it on the wall in the photo to the left ... right to the right of the guy to the furthest right's head
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm Gary:

That's okay, Jeff; I'll Google after the show
Avatar 9:40pm hyde:

yeah, i think i need this one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Ike:

Love Spoonie Gee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Gary:

It's just ... unstoppable
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Jeff Golick:

It don't stop!!
Avatar 9:44pm steve:

Doris, great ending... gotta run, great show Gary
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Gary:

Night, Steve!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Ike:

Those letters to the editor don't come up in an initial search, but this does: www.huffingtonpost.com...
Hmm, I hadn't seen this article before. Interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm Gary:

Interesting ... thanks, Ike!
Avatar 9:59pm hyde:

that wasa great set to close a wonderful tribute show. thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm coelacanth:

Thank you Gary!
