Hey Jeff, night owls!

Greetings from a rainy cold night in L.A. Finally.
Avatar 12:10am Jennifer_PNW:

Good evening from Oregon.
  12:14am Mario:

Monday morning with Jeff... Thank you!

Greetings to all searching for Transcendental Forgiveness
Avatar 12:20am Jeff Conklin:

Morning, all. Thanks for joining me.
  12:33am bbb:

Just Googled and read the Dead's cover of He Was a Friend of Mine was performed between 1966-70. It must have had even more profound meaning as the years went on. That 1969 version sounded pretty mournful.
  12:34am bbb:

Hi all...
Avatar 12:35am Hagbard Celine:

Dig the International Harvester! Someone please reissue this on vinyl.
Avatar 12:37am Jeff Conklin:

Agreed, bbb. They only played it a handful of times and 69 was a heavy year (has there been one that isn't?).

@Hagbard: It's my understanding Silence won't license it. Don't know why :/
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44am mariano:

Very meditative -- good work music too, lucky for me...
  12:46am bbb:

Oh wow, this is the post Mighty Baby group. Never heard this before...super great. Thanks!
Avatar 12:50am Hagbard Celine:

@ The Habibiyya. Never heard this either and it is quite fantastic. Wow thanks again!
Avatar 12:53am Jeff Conklin:

Only recently found out that Mighty Baby/Habibiyya members backed up Richard Thompson during his Sufi period. Great RT interview by Keith Connoly of NNCK here:bombmagazine.org...
  12:56am bbb:

Yeah, great interview. I read that after you mentioned it on a previous show.
  1:30am LDV:

Thanks from Maine. Always enjoy your show when I'm still up.
Avatar 1:35am Jeff Conklin:

Cool story, Stu, except this isnt the Dead.
Avatar 1:37am Jeff Conklin:

The Dead—and by extension, this—isn't for everyone, that's for sure. Thanks for checking in
  1:40am rw:

Hey! Checking in a little late. Did I miss anything? Of course I did.
Avatar 1:42am Jeff Conklin:

Ok, that should do it for the trolling.

Thanks, LDV. Where in Maine?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43am fleep:

rw hey loving the free water from sky
  1:43am bbb:

Ha...glad you blocked the Trump troll.
Avatar 1:45am Jeff Conklin:

Never had to do it before. I don't care if someone takes issue with the music but I could see that spiraling to a bad place fast..
  1:45am rw:

Chocolate Coffee Pot. My friend David keeps a bowl of those things in his studio.

fleep, Yeah! Weird, huh? Hopefully there's more to come this year.
Avatar 1:46am Jennifer_PNW:

Thanks for taking care of that Jeff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47am Scraps:

h'lo hi
Avatar 1:47am Jeff Conklin:


David as in David Gans? Because that's his band!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48am Scraps:

Gans! Miss the Well....
  1:49am rw:

JC, No, but I'll bet David Gans has a bowl of 'em too.
Avatar 1:51am Jeff Conklin:

Ha. David sent me that. I was deeply honored. Great jams! More here: dgans.bandcamp.com...
  1:55am rw:

Cool. Thx. I'll check out the album. Got here too late to hear the track on the air.
  1:58am Eric Hat:

Hey Jeff. Cool tracks for this rainy night on the road. The fares are living it. Thanks.

"Avant"? If you say so. Nice stuff, though
Avatar 2:26am Jeff Conklin:

Why am I getting my chops busted so much tonight on here?
  2:27am bbb:

LOL This Perspective tune is nice...she's got the Joni vibe goin' on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27am mariano:

Haven't heard Perspective before, are they from back in the day?
  2:29am bbb:

Discogs says 1970. "Privately Pressed LP by University of Rhode Island (URI) Student Collective Group that became Follies Bazaar."
  2:29am rw:

I was thinking the Perspective sounded a little like Heart but without the overblowing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31am mariano:

Jeff, take heart from some fake Latin: Non illegitimi carborundum -- Don't let the bastards get you down. Thanks, bbb!
  2:34am rw:

1970. That would mean Heart sounded a bit like overblown Perspective.
  2:39am bbb:

Didn't the Wilson sisters start playing music around that same time?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43am Scraps:

Heart was there, Roger Fisher, in 1970. The Wilson sister joined later, mid70s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46am Scraps:

Hm, Wikipedia disagree with me. Ann joined in 1970 or 1972, and they were Heart, among other names. Complicated
  2:51am bbb:

Didn't know Ringo Starr started playing banjo ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52am mariano:

I remember a couple of years ago here on FMU someone played a band called Gringo Starr.
  2:52am rw:

Liking the Daniel Bachman.

And Heart was around that early? Crazy.

And... Thanks Mr. Conklin for the beautiful show! Happy Thanksgiving to you and everybody! (I'm sure it's going to be a challenging one for many people this year!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53am Scraps:

Right before Lorne Greene kicked him out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53am mariano:

You too rw! Luckily I don't have to put up with family till Xmas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55am mariano:

Thanks for a great show Jeff. Love late nights on FMU.
  2:56am bbb:

We'll get through this...at least we have WFMU! See ya...
Avatar 2:56am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks for hanging, all. Happy thanksgiving to all of you. Thankful for you and to be here.
