Morning Jeff...That Becky Ryan is scarce. Loved the cut.
  12:09am saucerful:

Great version of "A Heart Needs a Home"! Love the harp...

Mellow fellow tonight JC, what's up?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11am sberger:

Rare lp night...
Avatar 12:19am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

I remember when I was a kid my grandparents had a Charles Schulz Peanuts book called Happiness Is A Sad Song, and I was like "that doesn't make sense", but now it does.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24am Aitch:

Eurodisco Jeff, always brings an ironic smile

happy noise :)
Avatar 12:44am Number Six:

Good Evening, Jeff & All! Enjoying this evenings selections.
  12:52am Hippie Jesus:

Tonight, I’m thankful for this first hour!
  12:56am MONEYBAG$:

Imagine supplying John Fahey's needs
  1:05am saucerful:

You are impatient Jeff! I'm in the middle of writing a question...Is the version of "A Heart Needs a Home" that's on Hokey Pokey the first version of that song?
  1:06am yippie:

i saw acid mothers temple on mothers day; they wrecked the place
Avatar 1:10am Jeff Conklin:

@saucerful: I believe so
  1:11am saucerful:

  1:12am zenkoan:

Hi Jeff--lurking but loving it as always. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving and are doing well tonight.
  1:12am Eric Hat:

I high on believing.
Avatar 1:12am Jeff Conklin:

Just gearing up for a cold, cold, cold winter
  1:15am zenkoan:

Thought I detected a bit of a blue note in your voice before...perhaps you are speaking metaphorically about the cold x 3 winter approaching
  1:16am zenkoan:

Oh--I get it now
  1:20am saucerful:

The winter chill is perfect for hybernating, drinking tea, reading, listening to music, cooking at home, etc. (whether you're coupled up or not).

It's warm in LA.
Avatar 1:23am Jeff Conklin:

I'm talking about the real cold and the existential one.
Avatar 1:23am Jeff Conklin:

If/when WFMU opens up shop in LA, I'll gladly move. This is all that keeps me in new york
  1:25am Agent Peter:

or new jersey, presumably...
  1:30am zenkoan:

Have you spent much time in LA, Jeff? I have ( as well as in NYC) and, though the LA weather in winter may beat NY's, a soulful, introspective fellow like yourself might find LA pretty lacking in that department (apologies to above poster in LA, but still)
Avatar 1:31am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

I predict...warm East Coast winter.
Avatar 1:32am Jeff Conklin:

I've spent maybe a month total in Los Angeles. It's appeal to me is the closeness of the ocean and the mountains. As a "city", well, it seems to have what one requires of such a construct.
  1:35am zenkoan:

Would be a great spot without all the superficial/habitually insincere people and absurd traffic.
  1:36am kyle landstra:

wow never heard this track by the dead before. love it.
Avatar 1:36am Jeff Conklin:

I still have a little daydreaming left in me but the reality is ill most likely die cold and miserable in NYC
  1:36am saucerful:

Zenkoan, don't believe the bad hype about LA.
  1:37am kyle landstra:

ahh cover. makes sense.
Avatar 1:37am Jeff Conklin:

@kyle: Not played after 1969, and not much when it was in rotation.
  1:38am zenkoan:

I know it's not applicable to everyone there, saucerful, but in my experience there's more than a grain of truth underlying the stereotype, unfortunately
  1:38am rw:

Hello! Not everybody in Los Angeles is superficial and insincere, but the traffic IS absurd and I think that does keep people from connecting because it's so difficult to get around.

Agreed. LA ain't so bad and when it is you sit in the sunshine and don't care. I lived here before and it's a great time here right now. Why do you think al those Cali jams are so laid back?
  1:39am zenkoan:

Besides, I'm willing to bet that Mr. Conklin fully realizes that contentment, or its absence, is far more a function of state of mind than state of residence.
  1:40am saucerful:

Avatar 1:41am Jeff Conklin:

Yes. I've been discontent long enough where I am, might as well see what discontent is somewhere else.
  1:41am zenkoan:

China Rider on the way? Or just China? Love it either way!!
  1:42am rw:

Jeff, if you're ever in LA I'll buy you a taco.
  1:44am zenkoan:

I hope a small bit of the discontent is ameliorated by the knowledge that your carefully curated shows generate contentment for many every single week.
  1:46am saucerful:

Yeah, feeling contented right now. That was a smoking hot guitar lead on China Cat. I'm imagining I'm at the Fillmore West in '69.
  1:47am saucerful:

Think how high everyone in California is going to be after Jan 1st. LOL
Avatar 1:49am Jeff Conklin:

@zen: It is
  1:49am saucerful:

Marijuana becomes legalized in California Jan. 1st for those not aware.
Avatar 1:51am Jeff Conklin:

That's not a selling point for me
  1:51am saucerful:

  1:52am rw:

Saucerful, my daughter's in Boulder where marijuana is legal. She sent a text yesterday that said, "Lots of parents who are in town for the holidays are getting their Colorado weed on. It's an interesting scene." Accompanied by a photo she stole of a stoned looking soccer-type mom holding a frappuccino.
  1:52am saucerful:

That's hilarious!
  1:54am saucerful:

Jeff, just goes to show being a head is also a state of mind...
Avatar 1:55am Jeff Conklin:

  1:59am rw:

I've got to put my head in a state of sleep for a few hours. Thanks Mr. Conklin! Good night kids!

Canada has to wait until summer
  2:02am saucerful:

Jeff "bummer" Conklin
Avatar 2:05am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

It is interesting how sad songs are cool to listen to even if you aren't sad....
  2:07am zenkoan:

And if you are sad (and isn't every adult, on some level, a mixture of sad and other states, having lived life for some time?), those songs are very cathartic and ultimately healing
Avatar 2:12am Jeff Conklin:

Yeah i mean sad songs always sounded good to me. they just sound GREAT lately.
Avatar 2:12am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

  2:16am zenkoan:

I'm a very nocturnal person myself (obviously, since I listen to this show every week!), but I try to adjust my schedule a little when the days get shorter so I can get more sunlight, which supports my mood. Also use one of those 10,000 lux lamps in my house to compensate for less sun exposure.
  2:30am Mark R:

Diggin' this spacey "Electric Blend," man.
  2:40am saucerful:

The only thing we can be certain of is change.
Avatar 2:47am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

...or for things to be the same for a while..
Avatar 2:47am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

ha ha not really.
  2:48am saucerful:

Avatar 2:56am Jeff Conklin:

Be well, everyone, see you next time.
  1:51pm JD sr:

Beautiful stuff Jeff, till next time.
