Options July 3, 2017: The Horse Lit Out Last Night
This is likely the final episode I will broadcast from my parents' basement in Minneapolis, before I move to NYC and start broadcasting from the WFMU Mothership. We'll celebrate this chapter of IYLYH history by playing three hours of personal hits. On this week's episode, I forgo my usual mission to present music that I've just discovered. Instead, I'll be fighting back the panic I feel at the prospect of moving across the country by playing songs that make me feel very good. Most of these aren't all that obscure. These are the types of songs I'd listen to on my lunch break, when it's sunny outside and I am strolling to the co-op to purchase an overpriced grain bowl and I need to feel alive. Enjoy!

I have a buttload of fireworks and propane. No smoking, please.

this is going on while we listen - the first curing fire in our cob oven
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Sam Segal:

Howdy, ya'll! Thanks for being here. I can't promise I'll play anything you've never heard tonight, but I hope you enjoy.
  9:15pm Carmichael:

Closer to the mothership, Sam. It's quite difficult to lose a horse in NY.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm Sam Segal:

But it has been known to happen, @Carmichael. abc7ny.com...
  9:29pm Carmichael:

Ha ha! I stand corrected.
  9:36pm Doug Schulkind:

Losing your horse is my hobby!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38pm Sam Segal:

Well, then you've come to the right place, friend!
  9:40pm Mark Mahoney:

Killin' it tonight Sam!
  9:40pm melinda:

I didn't know this was a Bacharach song.
  9:43pm the doctor:

Wishin you and your horse good travels!

Mark, I am so happy you're here!! Folks, commenter Mark Mahoney is a member of personal radio hall of fame.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Sam Segal:

Thanks, @Doc! Let's hope my horse follows me out there.
  9:48pm Carmichael:

What is your life long dream, Sam?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Sam Segal:

Truly, @Carmichael, getting to do this show is one of life long dreams. Beyond that...your guess is as good as mine.

@ngh! Glad I'm rockin' with another KDJ fan.
  10:14pm Dean:

If I were doing this show--a program informed by personal go-to tunes--I'd have to include Bacharach's own rendition of "Mexican Divorce" (the greatest pop song ever recorded), and Ry Cooder's "I Cant' Win." Ironically, Cooder's take on "Mexican Divorce" is nowhere near as good as the composer's own.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Sam Segal:

Dean! Bacharach's "Mexican Divorce" is go-to Burt for me as well.
  10:22pm Dean:

Also, Zeke's "T-500."
  10:35pm Dean:

I'm gonna guess that photo is late '70s. Provenance?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Dave in Vermont:

it's a long walk to a grain bowl in Minneapolis
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Sam Segal:

That's right, @Dave. That's why my lunch break every day is three and a half hours, and I work from 9 am to midnight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Sam Segal:

@Dean: The caption on the photo reads, " A Miner Who Had Completed His Work Shift Is Shown on a Pony Belonging to the Family of the Tavern Operator. A Short While Later He Was Bucked Off. There Is Little for the Young Miners to Do in the Small Mining Towns Other Than Drink Beer and Talk. In Rhodell, West Virginia, near Beckley 06/1974."
  10:44pm Dean:

Hmmm, early/mid-70s. (I'm not good with car vintages.) I'd propose that, contrary to there being little to do, a young miner could read, play banjo, volunteer to wash windows at the local public library, wash dishes at the tavern, and work on funding a start-up transportation service that shuttles patrons from tavern to tavern.
  11:16pm DL in LA:

So many great grooves. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Sam Segal:

DL! Glad to have some West Coast in the house.
Avatar 11:27pm northguineahills:

Even before vocals, in the first second you know it's Prince.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm Sam Segal:

His live bands in these days are just ridiculously tight
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm Dave in Vermont:

fuck yes, Sam
and thank you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm Sam Segal:

His name is Dave and he is from Vermont!
Avatar 11:49pm northguineahills:

Gotta move on out, enjoy the holiday, and the move! Looking for a house/apartment myself, but learning Thursday evening I got the position, means, no one has been around to answer my inquiries, and obviously won't until Wednesday. Hopefully I can find a place, and move in two weeks. It's only 60 miles from where I am now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm Sam Segal:

That's excellent news, @NGH! Take it easy.
