Nice odd Prunes cover!
Avatar 9:05pm

Spooky psych forever. I actually did have too much to dream last night, a rare nightmare that I woke myself out of at 4:30 AM.
Avatar 9:05pm

The Space Lady! A Berkeley/San Francisco institution!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm

Hey Hey ,, good stuff I'm a diggin' it !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm

hio hip hooray wierd!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm

Digging it too here. Progressively weirder - I'm all in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm

hello Jonathan and others
Avatar 9:17pm


Hey all! Excited to be here with you tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm

The only part of last night's dream I remember is a large cat sitting upright, human style, in an armchair,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm


My cat has been in that exact pose. Its freaky.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm

Man, I'd love to find the sheet music for this! It would be devilishly fun to play (or try to play)
Avatar 9:24pm

Mine was, being asked to donate blood to some poor folks by a street portrait artist and gang. I was ok with it but then was imprisoned in a dark basement, told I'd be locked up for 48 hours. No! So I created a window, escaped, and woke.

You can preview and buy the score here seems like: michaelgordonmusic.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm

Vicky Chow is amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm

Thanks Jonathan! This piece is amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm

Did I say "amazing" enough? OK I'm done.
Avatar 9:29pm

Whoa! This piece is blowing my mind.

Every time I feel like I have a handle on this piece it transforms into something even more crazy and complex.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm

ahhhhh . . . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm

I always wake myself up when it gets too frightening
Avatar 9:35pm
Joel St. Germain:

Wonderful show. Always happy to have you on the air Jonathan

Thanks Joel SEE YOU SOON!!!
Avatar 9:39pm

...interesting, I have more control, often, in dreams now; when younger, not so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm
Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Jonathan. I'm pretty sure I remember Marty McSorley saying he wanted to have you play "Peace Sells... But Who's Buying" from Megadeth. If you could find somewhere to put that, that would be great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm

i often realise i'm dreaming when i'm dreaming but still rarely can take control of it without awakening. i'm a light sleeper so i think it makes sense.
Avatar 9:42pm

The prior piano piece was devilish yet Just. // This sounds influenced by gamelan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm

last night i awoke just because i was about to get on a platform for a subway without knowing what trains or buses would get me home. i wasn't worried. i somehow never learn the system but wing it and i always get home, but someone i slightly know was there and we apparently lived together. he/she insisted on helping me and i was torn between taking the directions and doing it how i always do it.
...but that minor dilemma woke me up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm

you start thinking about it to resolve it- that could wake me up
Avatar 9:53pm

Tonight I hope I don't dream I'm in 1947 and everyone smokes Lucky Strikes or Camels.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm

I like it when I hear someone talking in his or her sleep(unless it wakes me up)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm

I have smoking dreams, mostly driving or being in a large space/house/garden with a lot going on with many people dreams or movie format dreams with a soundtrack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm

enjoying this show, Jonathan!
Avatar 10:06pm

It seems the agriculture god Azacca of Haiti is hard-pressed these days. And needs human help too.

Thanks Chresti!!
Avatar 10:17pm

Yes, enjoying the show while filing papers, taking notes; wish I could dance or jump.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm

no hopping desk, yet?
Avatar 10:19pm

..well, I'm squirming in my seat at least..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm

got the bongos out the close just starring at them . for now anyway ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm

TDK @9.53 i hope i DO dream that. war's over, people getting happier...and maybe i'll see my lucky strike/camel/ pall mall (all filterless) smoking grandma.
Avatar 10:23pm

well, there ya go coel --have that one and dream well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm

chresti @9.55 i've directed others' dreams several times by entering into their aural environment. if they're speaking out load they're open to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm

...or maybe vulnerable to it is more accurate; but i've never caused someone else's dream to turn sour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm

I have never tried talking. only kicking
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm

or friendly patting

Ever try the hand-in-warm-water trick?

bug out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm

Heavens no!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm

yes just a friendly kick!
...i don't know that i ever have done anything besides becoming part of their dreams. in some way. even if it's making some sound from across the room. i once pushed an electric can opener in the kitchen, which was next to my bedroom, and softly called for a dog (we didn't have a dog) to come eat. she said something like "when did he get here".
Avatar 10:43pm

Ah, I've met Michael Stirling, raga singer. Fine fellow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm

Jonathan my friends did that to another friend a few times after other friend passed out drunk. it never worked, as far as i know. (which i'm glad about)
Avatar 11:18pm

'75. At first thought it was 1950s tape music.
Avatar 11:21pm

It's 1975 tape music, right?

Not sure if tape is utilized in this one specifically, I think its just him whistling into a microphone, but on this album, definitely.
Avatar 11:25pm

Recorded onto tape at least, heh.

Now this is a tape-heavy zone.
Avatar 11:33pm

Tape heavy zone - scientific musicians in white lab coats, notepads.
Avatar 11:37pm

Well, it's been a full sonic menu tonight, DJ JW. Soon I'll move to horizontal furniture. Maybe I'll dream I'm a roadie for The Electric Prunes in '66 L.A. Guys in Mod-cum-hippy corduroy jackets, long hair, boots; women in paisley skirts, beads. The club owner won't mind if we puff some reefers out back. Sounds like a comforting dream...

After all this talk about dreams, its only fair to want to go experience. Thanks for listening TDK

Marcel M:

good stuff

Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, Jonathan. Hope you land another fill-in gig soon. (I see 8/21 midnight is on the books already.)

Thanks everyone, see you next time!
