  3:15pm Lyle:

Lee Morgan? We drank with him in Tipton, GA one evening back in, maybe 1968. I was touring with Trini Lopez. Well, after a few Harvey Wallbangers, Lee and Trini decided to climb the giant peach-shaped water tower they have down there. The damn thing must be 300-feet tall. About halfway up, Trini got scared and climbed back down, but ol' Lee just kept climbing, all the while throwing down articles of clothing until he was pantless. Nothing but a dickie and his little ballcap. Tipton's finest showed up about that time and started yelling at him through their bullhorn to "get the hell down off of there!" Lee did climb back down, doing a little bow at the bottom before they cuffed him and took him away. Loved that man. They don't make 'em like Lee Morgan anymore!

They don't make 'em like Lyle, either. Welcome back, Lyle, your presence makes a playlist special.

That was so nice of Alice Cooper. It makes sense that he would like The Zombies.

Al Kooper - a quite different person.
  3:46pm Lyle:

Thanks, Jeff. I never miss Irwin's show. I remember when we were both in Pat Suzuki's band for a few months. Irwin's a great drummer. I think it was Irwin? Might have been Bob Crane.

I wish Lyle would write his memoirs (as posted on WFMU comments boards).

Lyle - the way to tell is to look with your mind's eye and see if you remember chafing on the drummer's wrists. One of them (I won't say who) is renowned for liking to get tied up.

Hey Irwin--Was Music Factory (the label) supposed to be a Tom Wilson label? Was it named after the radio show or vice versa?
Avatar 4:04pm geezerette:

haha, already great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Irwin:

The Music Factory was a show, then it was a recording studio (which he helped establish). The label might have been associated with the studio. If anyone wants to check around, post here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Irwin:

Yes, there are vintage commercials in this program.
  4:07pm holland oats:

this is a real treat - thanks, Irwin!

This is insanely cool. Tom Wilson was insanely cool.
  4:21pm Corbo:

Tom Wilson (and Jimmy Smith) steady killing it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Irwin:

Sorry, my faulty mem -- Wilson helped establish THE RECORD PLANT, not the Music Factory. Understandable mistake: Music/Record, Factory/Plant.
Avatar 4:22pm Joe McG:

I looked at all the 45s and LPs on the Music Factory label (which has the same logo as the radio show) and Tom Wilson doesn't seem to have produced any of them, so maybe MGM just thought it was a cool logo and reused it.
  4:29pm Freedom Williams:

Things that make you go hmmmm.
Avatar 4:31pm Roberto:

Preach, Brother Frank.
Avatar 4:34pm joeray:

Trouble Coming Everyday was the track that made Wilson want to sign the Mothers of Invention to Verve but, according to Zappa, Wilson hadn't heard any of their weirder tracks such as "Who Are the Brain Police" until they were already in the studio recording them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Irwin:

Greatest Richie Havens song ever.

Missed the artist's name from the last intro, little help?
  4:41pm jan:

Hey- is that opening riff and refrain on music factory ep.1 the same as used on a Blues Project song?
  4:41pm Corbo:

Every Mother's Son: Pony with the Golden Mane

thx corbo
  4:43pm Nate K:

I'm familiar with Donovan's version of "Hey Gyp."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Irwin:

Jan: You mean the intro theme? It's the Mothers of Invention, "Help, I'm a Rock," from FREAK OUT, which TW produced.

Really digging this. I love this Animals song, but lost the album the last time I moved.

Thanks for playing this Irwin and chronicling Tom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm Webhamster Henry:

This is great - maybe this series needs its own WFMU stream!
  4:47pm jan:

no, I think it was the Pony with the Golden Mane song that I heard the same opening riff from the blues project lp with flute thing.
Avatar 4:51pm geezerette:

Irwin thanks so much for sharing this with us! Was not aware of Tom Wilson and am grateful he existed!

Oh, my. When NO ONE would play The Doors on the air. Except the chosen few ... This is great.
Avatar 4:56pm MenfussMike:

in the early 90's i came across a tape of Tom Wilson having a conversation with Lou Reed. Lou was telling Tom about how he was gonna put coloring books into V.U. records. It was pretty funny. Of course, Lou was full of shit.

  5:09pm jan:

Irwin, BTW, This past week was marked by several obituaries of music industry people- do any of these deserve commentary or musical observance- Lou Pearlman, the music executive who built a pop empire on boy bands like the Backstreet Boys and ’NSync;Toots Thielemans, and Irving Fields? Made for interesting obit reading anyway.
Avatar 5:13pm Linda Lee:

love the Jeremy Pelt side. delicious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Michael 98145:

It is indeed odd to recall the birth of FM. Few if any cars had FM-band radios. It was a baby miracle invention. Now AM has devolved to a few sports, ethnic and evangelical channels.

  5:21pm Lyle:

Jerry Pelt? No. it can't be the same man I toured with in Connie Chung's band. Before she was a newswoman, Connie fronted a smart little jazz octet and Jerry was first flautist. I, of course, played trombone. Jerry was an early proponent of fuzz boxes, and he irritated Connie many times by engaging it at the most inopportune moments, such as when Connie was introducing Vice-President Nixon during the Eisenhower administration. It was the first and last time we ever played in Whittier. Nixon couldn't stand Jerry's distorted flute version of Hail to the Chief and he walked off stage with the sourest of looks on his face. Another thing. Jerry never performed without putting an aspirin in his Coke. He said it helped him get "out there," and he certainly was. Loved him!

WFMU is the closest of all to our dearly-departed KRAB-fm : www.historylink.org...

Also the great vibraphonist Bobby Hutchinson, Jan. He's been getting a fair amount of FMU play over the last 10 days or so if you check the archives. John Allen played a track this morning.

Ah, that was it. I couldn't remember the name of the song, only that it was the opening track on that Raymond Scott Orchestrette album that had Clem Waldman on drums.
