Hi Mike!
Avatar 6:13am Mike Van Laar:

Bas! How are you? Thanks for stopping by to say "Hello"!
Avatar 6:16am Bas NL:

Very well, thanks! Great Easter surprise to see you 'on air'!
  6:22am miles:

on your balloon?! just off the surface of the moon
Avatar 6:23am Mike Van Laar:

Dank u wel, Bas. Really great to see you and always appreciate your support!
Avatar 6:27am Bas NL:

And great track selection so far!
  6:31am miles:

great song great album- this buffy st Marie stuff
  6:31am Mark R:

Hi Mike--always great to hear one of your shows! This Buffy song is a good one for Easter morning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33am fred:

That Buffy Sainte-Marie track is very nice indeed
Avatar 6:35am Mike Van Laar:

Wow. Thanks everyone. I stumbled across it last night as i was preparing and it sounded right to me.
Avatar 6:39am Sem Chumbo:

Hiya, Mike, and all. Head down in some work but listening. Liking it all plenty.
Avatar 6:42am Mike Van Laar:

Hi there Sem! Glad you're here and appreciate the "hello" even though you're on the clock and workin'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48am fred:

I was thinking I must have missed one of your shows, but no, you really haven't been on the air since August. Mike, eight months between shows is far too long
Avatar 6:49am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah, loves my NateK but good to hear ya.
Avatar 6:51am Mike Van Laar:

Yeah, Fred, I agree. That's why I'm here Easter Sunday. 8 months is too long. The good news is I've been having some luck at the Goodwill, so some fun new/old records to play.
Avatar 6:52am Mike Van Laar:

My last show was so long ago I forgot that I played that "Trad, Gras..." track then. It's so good though, I don't really care. Hope you don't.
Avatar 6:55am Mike Van Laar:

And thanks, RevRabbit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55am fred:

I really like this Noveller track. I hadn't heard it in a while, thanks for playing it
Avatar 6:55am Mike Van Laar:

And thanks, Mark!
Avatar 6:56am Bas NL:

@Mike It worked alright, made me tune in to the playlist to clicky star it. ;)
Avatar 7:01am Sem Chumbo:

Another water sign...
But the Rev Rab would have comments of all things astrological.
Avatar 7:07am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Some actual Astrological info on there - not too bad...even got beyond the usual PR that ♓Pisces correlates to just spirituality & sensitivity - & there is the flipside of delusion & even emotional manipulation
...as a ♏Scorp - yerknow - we always get the bad press!...
Avatar 7:16am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Neat-o hearing the Elevators' sort of sibling band - Golden Dawn. They don't get an awful lot of spins...
Avatar 7:23am Mike Van Laar:

RevRabbit - Yeah I agree. Even though that album has so matter similarities to 13th Fl. Elevators,I don't think that's a bad thing, and it's pretty good on it's own.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23am fred:

Daniel Higgs! Very interesting guy. I only got to see him once, but it was memorable. He had met traditional Indian or Pakistani musicians in London, so he brought them on for his tour. Somehow, he made it work
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33am Ken From Hyde Park:

Good morning, Mike. Thanks for rising to the occasion today.
  7:36am kevin:

Avatar 7:42am Mike Van Laar:

Good morning Ken!
Avatar 7:54am northguineahills:

Wow, that's curious, I haven't faved this show yet, which means I've never listened live....
Avatar 7:55am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...sometimes the track w/ gittar that reminds me of Durutti Column is Durutti Column...
Avatar 7:57am Mike Van Laar:

Rev Rabbit - haha
Avatar 7:57am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Julia' is perfect for Easter...just don't ask me to explain that.
Avatar 7:58am Mike Van Laar:

northguineahills- Thanks! I'm only able to do shows every few months. But I'm glad you caught me today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58am fred:

@NGH: That's understandable, as Mike's appearances have been few and far between for a while. Weird that I'm usually there to listen
  7:59am Mark R:

One of my absolute favorite Beatles songs. We almost named our daughter Julia because of this song.
  8:00am BillyD:

Nice to hear you on. Happy Easter from Dublin
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00am fred:

Wow, one of the few Beatles songs that I do like
Avatar 8:03am northguineahills:

Suite! Digging!
Avatar 8:04am northguineahills:

When my now wife moved in w/ me, I was listening to all of my physical musical media in alphabetical order. I hit the Beatles the second day, and it lasted almost 3 weeks. She still nearly hates the Beatles.
  8:07am kev:

happy easter from NH. burn those jelly beans
Avatar 8:09am Mike Van Laar:

Oh really, Mark? That's great! That's why we did. Always loved that one. Thanks..
Avatar 8:09am Mike Van Laar:

I can always count on you, Fred! You get me.
  8:11am Mark R:

3 weeks in a row of the same artist will make you hate anybody. (Maybe not Beethoven.) FMU-ers mostly subscribe to the "variety is the spice of life" ethos. Witness this radio program. Digging the gospel btw.
Avatar 8:14am northguineahills:

My Sun Ra, Stockhausen, and Stereolab sections were weeks long as well (years after the Beatles). They didn't raise the same enmity as the Beatles in her.
  8:18am judy from croton:

Hey, sem chumbo! Mike VL, this music is fantastic and helping poach salmon, roast lamb and make sure there's no hair in the bathroom sink.
Company's comin.
Avatar 8:21am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Beatles is the deepest roots for me - they had me @ the Sat. A.M. cartoon show in its' original run. I can burn out on them - but it doesn't last. You could argue they helped pioneer an ethic of variety - never doing the same album twice & surfing the times w/ flair...but I need new sonic input - a junkie for it...Limited listening would be very UnBeatle-like...

Was in a brief band project that covered one GBV song - but I'm otherwise unfamiliar - so Pollard is weirdly strange & familiar @ once!...
Avatar 8:22am Mike Van Laar:

Hey Judy! Thanks! Don't forget, just like salmon, house guests start to stink after 3 days. Good luck and keep poaching!
Avatar 8:25am Mike Van Laar:

RevRabb. Same here. My old man got me started ( I think the first track I heard was "Strawberry Fields.." or " I am the Walrus) Thanks Dad! -- I usually go in phases...burn out after a few weeks, then revisit in 6 months or so.
Avatar 8:29am Sem Chumbo:

@judy from croton: just back from planting leeks, beets, peas, and spinach.
Finally time!

How's all in Croton?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30am Mike Sin:

re: Fat Mattress
I only have the first album, so it was nice to hear a track off the even more obscure second LP!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35am Ken From Hyde Park:

@judy - I hope Bosco gets some nice salmon today ... and keeps the sink clean.
Avatar 8:36am northguineahills:

Thanks Mike! Good fun!
Avatar 8:39am Mike Van Laar:

Thanks NGH! So glad you stopped by today!
Avatar 8:53am Sem Chumbo:

Hope to hear from you again, and that it won't be too long a wait. Thanks for the spins!
Avatar 8:54am Mike Van Laar:

Thanks for a great 3 hours of company everyone! Have a great rest of your Sunday and I will see you in a few months...or maybe down at Monty Hall! Thanks!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55am fred:

Yeah, I hope you can find the time to do at least a couple more fill-ins this year. 8 month is way too long
Avatar 8:57am Bas NL:

Thanks Mike! Hope to hear more of you soon!
Avatar 8:58am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

TY! Don't be a stranger.
