Gaaah, sorry about that, gang -- hi, Tim, James and RevRab!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:10pm melinda:

This is nice.
  Wed. 8/3/16 7:11pm Dean:

If my bearings are correct, Honest Jon's is a few doors away from Mountain Grill Cafe, namesake of one of Hawkwind's albums! I recall seeing it in 1984 while shopping (for records, naturally) at the Portobello Road flea market.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:13pm Gary:

Hi Dean! Not sure if I saw the Mountain Grill Cafe, although it sounds familiar. Frankly, I was too excited to really notice anything other the CDs I'd picked up -- holy bejeebus, but that is an amazing record store.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:17pm northguineahills:

I dig this Toktek!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...always been *afraid* of England - because of possibility of entering a Music Store & never being seen again...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:17pm Gary:

NGH! The guy in Distortion Records recommended it when I asked him for "interesting Dutch stuff"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:18pm Gary:

RevRab, I was in Honest Jon's for at least 2 hours ... and it's smaller than my apartment
  Wed. 8/3/16 7:20pm Dean:

If it's as good as it used to be, L'Oblique in Montreal is a similar kind of store. More boutique than warehouse, but wow, an amazing selection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:24pm Gary:

I'm going to have to make it back up to Montreal, I see
  Wed. 8/3/16 7:30pm Dean:

And Cheap Thrills, another good Montreal store, at least c.2000.
  Wed. 8/3/16 7:37pm spodiodi:

Nice show, Gary. Sounds good.

Spodiodi! Thanks!

...all 1967 tunes I think...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:39pm Gary:

Oh, is that true? I bet she's got a whole underlying constraint going on
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...not too terribly bad a year for music...maybe idea came from a Chart Sweep?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:42pm Gary:

But, then this is part of it, and Jump is 1984 ... Disco Inferno 1977 ... hmmm
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:43pm tim abdellah:

... And "I'll Follow the Sun" 1964
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- actually written by SirMacca as a teen in the 1950s - but nevermind!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:45pm Gary:

Whatever the constraint (or not) may have been, Vicki & Peter were insanely wonderful hosts & lovely people
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:51pm tim abdellah:

Nasida Ria! Nice - I've watched those ladies on the YouTubes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 7:53pm Gary:

They're spectacular! I can't tell you how my heart was racing when I found that CD -- it's from the 1990s and out of print ...

excellent first hour Gary - catch the rest on the archive!

Sounds of the Universe is not Universal Sound, I take it (the Soul Jazz sublabel).

everything is better in French. i'm convinced that infomercials are better in French. even limericks might be better in French.

It's run by the same people, NGH

You've been very patient, Hyde -- some Thai coming up soon, I promise!

Ok, record label dyslexia gets me again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:37pm hyde:

also, this Tala A.M. is amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:39pm Gary:

Well, NGH, it's my fault because I'm putting store names in the playlist where one might assume one might put labels
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:42pm Ike:

Was hoping for great Thai food in Brooklyn. Tried a place called Look (by Plant Love House) a few weeks ago. Not bad, not bad at all, but still not as good as Thai food in Queens.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:43pm Gary:

You know, Ike, there used to be some good places on and near Church Avenue, my old neighborhood in Brooklyn
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:43pm Gary:

... and speaking of Thai
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:46pm Alex In Illinois:

There are lots of Thai places in the Chicago area. I think there were more, 20 years ago. Maybe they have just moved westward. Either that, or it is a case of the younger generation not wanting to be in the restaurant business, which happens with all types of family owned restaurants.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:46pm hyde:

sounds good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:49pm Gary:

Hi Alex! What area of Chicago were they in before?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:54pm Uncle Michael:

Been enjoying the last hour, Gary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:54pm Gary:

Michael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:55pm Alex In Illinois:

They were all over the North side of the City, and maybe they still are, but here in Oak Park, there used to be more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:55pm Gary:

Where are you getting all of those incredible threatening weather gifs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:56pm Uncle Michael:

Supercells R Us

I mean...the Internet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:56pm Gary:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:57pm melinda:

Enjoyed the variety tonight. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:59pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks for the music, Gary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 9:59pm Alex In Illinois:

Hi Uncle Michael,
Since you live closer to Tornado Alley than most of us, I thought maybe you drove 100 miles West one day with a camcorder, and recorded them yourself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 10:00pm hyde:

thanks Gary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 10:00pm Ike:

There's all sorts of interesting stuff on and around Church Ave. but IDK anything about the Thai restaurants there. I'm not too far from there, actually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 10:04pm Gary:

Check it out, Ike! Night all, and thanks for hanging out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/4/16 9:57am Brian in UK:

Gary, so pleased that you had a great time this side of the water. It will take a few weeks to absorb all the sounds.
The Dove is a lovely little pub by the Thames, trust you had a pint of London Pride.
