Gdafternoon, friends! 2 songs in to equipment failure!
  3:17pm Pas Musique:

This kind of spacey is great for my brain now. Work is stressful.
Avatar 3:17pm Wild Neil:

Simon Joyner & David Nance sounds like the VU with a little John Denver added for spice.....
  3:19pm Pas Musique:

My mother always said John Denver looked like Kermit the Frog but human.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Gdafternoon Scott and Scotters!

@Pas: Probably why Denver and the Muppets used to sing together so often.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Scott Williams:

@Pas, HA! I can see that. I believe they were close
Avatar 3:25pm Chris from DC:

Oh hey, Pas Musique!
  3:25pm Pas Musique:

Hey Chris!
  3:27pm Pas Musique:

I hear a version of "It's not easy being green" coming on.
Avatar 3:28pm Wild Neil:

Tanya Tagaq reminds me of Diamanda Galas.
Avatar 3:28pm geezerette:

Tanya sounds like men.
  3:28pm Pas Musique:

Maybe in half speed.
  3:28pm Dean:

Guy with whom I went to high school used to cover John Denver songs at school events, etc. Looked and sounded just like the man himself.
  3:29pm Dean:

Funny, too, that John looks nothing like his brother, Bob.
Avatar 3:29pm geezerette:

...like Spinal Tap.
Avatar 3:30pm geezerette:

or Python.
  3:30pm Pas Musique:

Maybe Bob's Dad was really the mailman. ;) Or Kermit really is John Denver's father.

this is my new favorite anything
  3:31pm Polyus:

wow wow wow
Avatar 3:31pm Wild Neil:

@Scott-this show is off the hook!
Avatar 3:32pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

That Tagaq contained a similar strain of feral beauty to that found in Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. Dig.

Also, what crateslinger said.
Avatar 3:32pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Also-also, hello.

Scott, different colored lava lamps under Blacklight, nice decor man.

WHOAA! Still some trace of Detroit Rock in this early Parliament track!
Avatar 3:36pm MenfussMike:

this song STILL cracks me up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Nice prog here, like the name Panta Rei as well.
Avatar 3:41pm chromaphone:

Speaking of Swedish prog rock, have you heard the new Dungen? It's pretty awesome.
Avatar 3:41pm geezerette:

Wow, Celtic belly dancing for a moment followed by Celtic Square Dance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Scott Williams:

y'all take a deep breath before seeking out the Panta Rei album cover
  3:43pm melinda:

What a great cover
  3:44pm melinda:

of Purple Haze, that is.
Avatar 3:45pm geezerette:

ha ha! OMG !
  3:45pm Pas Musique:

@scott I really enjoyed the black velvet paintings at the studio. Although I didn't see a Nicholas Cage one. I think that has to be updated in the future. ;)
  3:46pm steve:

so where's Goober?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Ike:

Wait, we're in a grace period? Does that mean no celebrities will die for a while, thus freeing us temporarily from people whining about celebrities dying?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Carmichael:

Heya Scott and listeners.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Don't worry Ike, we can still whine about the anniversary of celebrity deaths, like on Therese last night! ;)
Avatar 3:50pm geezerette:

answer the door.
Avatar 3:55pm V Priceless:

this has 'Wake & Bake' theme music written all over it ; )
  3:57pm that guy...:

It's obvious the DJ just woke up
Avatar 3:58pm geezerette:

ow! ow! ouch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Ike:

Wow, uh, that was distinctive! The lyrics were sorta great, but too goofy for this world. Is that guy the Karl Marx of the radio world of 1988?
Avatar 4:00pm geezerette:

reminds me of Jack Nicholson in "Little Shop of Horrors".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Scott Williams:

@Pas, here's the Nicolas Cage one youtu.be...
Avatar 4:03pm Chris from DC:

I've been enjoying that grind band Cage that uses his dialog in their songs.
  4:04pm Pas Musique:

@scott Watching the Cage montage to the March From Clockwork Orange was pretty damn good.
  4:04pm Pas Musique:

@chris The CAGE grindcore band is actually really great!

Ahhh, trippy...good for this frigid day.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Warszawa - so beautiful. I can almost feel Scott playing this nearly a year ago, 1 A.B. (After Bowie).
Avatar 4:11pm mark r:

I went through a phase where I'd just play the instrumental side of "Low" every day. It was dark, man. On a day like today? Forget about it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Loogat that beautiful playlist - I ask you.

Spacey/Antarctica/Moon mood with this Zazou. Great cut Scott!

Everything since "Low" is spooky and beautiful.

Avatar 4:33pm Chris from DC:

This is amazing.

thanks guys!
Avatar 4:34pm mark r:

I like the long space outs too, Matt. More and more as I get older for some reason...

I am adding "The Magic Carpathians" to my list of favorite band names (the number one spot of which continues to be held by To Live And Shave In L.A.).

Scott, saw this guy on the subway this weekend. People are disgusting. https://instagram.com/p/BO_l9h5ABjU/
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@Jake: That experience of the NYC subway is why the DC Metro is so authoritarian, law-and-order on food. They'll pull a gun on you and haul you out for a single French fry here!
Avatar 4:50pm βrian:

They can be mighty tetchy about things French.
  4:53pm Anonymous Coward:

I wish I could have remembered that Readers Digest records name so I could have answered the other Anonymous Coward.
  4:54pm Pas Musique:

The NYC subway is pretty disgusting. I have seen so maybe disgusting things on it. I just came back from Mexico City and it was so clean compared to some NYC subways.

Any Korg fans on the playlist? I like when musicians comment on the technology of synths being played.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm Bas NL:

@Matt Yes, Korg fan! (My avatar is me in front of my Korg MS-20 + MS-50.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm Matt from Springfield:

Whooooo! Yeah Bas! :)
And the same model as the track too.

Gerry and the HOLOGRAMS!! :O
Avatar 5:07pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

@Matt 5:01: Yep. I'll be hugging a MS2000B in public (among other things) quite soon. It's got its flaws (disco fart machine), but once one gets past the default patches, it can do lovely things...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm Bas NL:

Yep; this sounds like an MS-10 to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Matt from Springfield:

1975-1984, likely an older Korg or Minimoog being used on this track.

RTD: FREE LOVE (of synthesizers!) PDAs!
  5:10pm BriJet:

Ahoy hoy!
  5:11pm Pas Musique:

I love the MS2000B. I used that for many of my releases. It's got fake wood paneling on the sides too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm Michael 98145:

wow; this looks like quite a compilation : en.wikipedia.org...

MS2000B's way cool!

I've got a Mini-Korg 2, the two-oscillator version, it's quite wonderful. Real wood on the sides!

@WildNeil: You sure that was the F train? No train I know of in Brooklyn has a stop at Ocean Avenue.
  5:36pm JakeGould:

If it was Ocean Parkway I could believe you. But it would have been the Q train.
  5:38pm wild neil st jake gould:

clarification:used to live on ocean avenue in midwood with jd egg but f stopped nearby near a great bagel shop...

@WildNeil: Why would you walk all the way from McDonald Avenue to Ocean Avenue from the F? The D (now B) and the Q train are much closer.
