Tracy was my 1983 go-to song to listen to in my bedroom becuase I would have been beat up if I played it on my boombox at age 14 in the schoolyard.

Yep - Samantha Juste was the first Mrs. Dolenz - "The being known as Wondergirl is speaking, I believe" :-) Gorgeous woman. Presented Top of the Pops :-)

Jeff Lynne and Marc Bolan on dual-gtrs. Thank you very much!

Oh wow, did not know that. So cool. I love that song by Samantha and of course, The Monkees.

I didn't know they ever teamed up... what kind of ELO-fan am i...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Wait ... Marc Bolan AND Elo??? WOW. That's fantastic :-)
Avatar 3:21pm Otis Fodder:

Was included on a ELO 2 CD reissue in the early 2000s. Previously unreleased and should have been at least a b-side I'd say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Dutchman Jan:

nice transisition
Avatar 3:23pm Otis Fodder:

Yep. I guess Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne and Marc Bolan all knew one another, from what I've read. Love those guys so much.

I have this vague memory of reading that John's Children supported The Move? That may be wishful thinking .. ;-)

Shooby on Bandcamp:

I think there is a Shooby song about that, need to play it in reverse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Rich in Washington:

Shooby's Over the Rainbow has been the closing music for my KBOO show for many years. I was vaguely aware of Irwin's dredging up more tunes but it sort of slipped me by. I should check it out.

Glen, you can do both, you know. now we got ourselves a party!
Avatar 4:07pm Otis Fodder:

Alain Goraguer (La Planète Sauvage) and his somewhat-close-to-version of Hot Blood's Soul Dracula.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm Rich in Washington:

Didn't someone just release a Goraguer soundtrack to a porno movie, or did I just dream that?
  4:09pm Welsh Rarebit:

Sexy vampire = less Klaus Kinski in nosferatu and more Tom Cruise in interview with the vampire?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Rich in Washington:

It's here in my office. Some kind of web interruption.
Avatar 4:18pm spacebrother:

...meaning I know there was quite a bit of collaboration between them during the "Human Highway" period.
  4:19pm Welsh Rarebit:

Could never tell if this record was legitimately something Neil wanted to make or if he did it so his record label would dump him. I think in the long run it’s alright, but I imagine at the time a lot of people would have thought WTF?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm gonna transfer to the tablet and armchair combo, so still listening but may go chat quiet for a bit :-)
Avatar 4:20pm Mr Fab:

I thought Kraftwerk was the inspiration for Trans. but I could just be making that up.
Avatar 4:22pm Otis Fodder:

It has something to do with his son and the vocoder, but have to look up the story again. It's an interesting back story from what I recall. I love the whole album. And I also love NY solo and CSNY.
  4:23pm Welsh Rarebit:

“Young started playing with two new machines he had acquired, a Synclavier and a vocoder. Crazy Horse guitarist Poncho Sampedro recalled, "Next thing we knew, Neil stripped all our music off, overdubbed all this stuff, the vocoder, weird sequencing, and put the synth shit on it."”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm in the chair and on the tablet! Comfortable now
  4:23pm Welsh Rarebit:

Yeah, Wikipedia says something about Neil’s son having cerebral palsy and it was to do with therapy related to that.
Avatar 4:24pm Don-O:

That's it. I might end up redoing next weeks show and sneaking in ELO! Hell, I might play 'Beatles Forever'!!

Avatar 4:39pm Otis Fodder:

Holy Tire Iron tapes on Discogs,
Holy Tire Iron was a 90s audio zine project by Reverend Raye, from West Somerville, Massachusetts. One would call the phone number and listen to the stories that others had left on the machine. It was not a 900 service, so if you were outside of the Boston area you had to pay for long distance phone charges. There was no advertising, the 'message changed every day,' and was made up of what callers called in. It was active for a number of years in the early-mid 1990s. The motto was "Inspiration is only a phone call away" and Raye called it free public media and added "Would you like fries with your art?"
Avatar 4:40pm Archivist Vivian:

I feel like I'm hearing something I'm not supposed to be hearing.

I just uploaded The Wind Between My Wings by "Cedar Point Jim" to YouTube. It's a piece of work.
Avatar 4:44pm spacebrother:

There used to be an anonymous "confession line" which resulted in a zine called "Confession" I think. They printed the best messages in each issue.
Avatar 4:46pm Archivist Vivian:

Weird Al Yankovic and a friend of his operated an anonymous joke hotline in Downey CA in the mid 70s called the Zygot line.
Avatar 4:47pm Archivist Vivian:

There's a tape posted on Youtube from that line of Al and his friend, Mike Solton, performing a parody of Randy Newman's "Short People", calling it "Zyg Callers", about the people who called in.
Avatar 4:47pm Otis Fodder:

I have 7 90min tapes of Holy Tire Iron. Going to stretch out recordings on future shows in small bits.

I may have called that joke line when I was a little kid. There was a Nazi party number in San Diego too that I should have recorded. We used to call it and laugh and marvel.
Avatar 4:50pm Archivist Vivian:

Unrelated to what we are listening to, Otis. But I am trying to obtain more Mar-Tie recordings. I contacted this guy who has three but he's a college teacher and was too busy last time I asked. I actually sampled Mar-Tie on an upcoming project I'm doing.
Avatar 4:50pm spacebrother:

Never heard of the Tire Iron. Great stuff, Otis!
Avatar 4:50pm Archivist Vivian:

That's very possible, it was very popular. Apparently it shut down because it got too much traction, I think? I forget.
Avatar 4:51pm Otis Fodder:

Only found a couple of mentions online in zines, like SO WHAT a zine by Rev Groovy G (obsessed with the number 23 in his zine). The tapes I have were in my old cassette tape catalog.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm Webhamster Henry:

Yeah, the confession line!
Avatar 4:52pm Otis Fodder:

Viv, did you contact BC Sterrett? I helped release those with BC and his friends years ago on Comfort Stand. Check with BC as he would know more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thoroughly enjoying all of this
Avatar 4:52pm spacebrother:

I remember "So What." I might still have a couple around somewhere.
Avatar 4:53pm Otis Fodder:

I was going to play the old FMU Catalog tape, Apology Line. But oh mannn, is it heavy. So put that in a box for maybe a future show.
Avatar 4:53pm Archivist Vivian:

I haven't, but that's a good idea. Mar-Tie is very fascinating. I have a friend who lives in Provo and I had to tell her all about him.
Avatar 4:53pm Otis Fodder:

I love that you remember that zine. :)

I used to produce answering machine messages on my 4track and NeXT; every year I'd make an outgoing message out of messages left on the machine.
Nowadays, telephony s mostly junk phone calls.

I have 3 guest shows coming up over the next, 3 weeks. Guests will play most everything but if there is any filler time, I have this Holy Tire Iron tape here to continue and fill in space.
Avatar 4:55pm Archivist Vivian:

There's some pretty groovy people speaking on this Holy Tire Iron tape. I'm really into this.
Avatar 4:56pm OliverrrLewisss:

Ehehe, looking forward to joining you on the waves, cheers Otis !
All this talk of call-in tapes has got me wondering if anyone at the Montreal Mirror ever kept any of the 'Rant Line' call-in tapes . . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

God. I just went to the Comfort Stand website. There's some names there that bring back memories ...
Avatar 4:56pm Otis Fodder:

I love this and what I love more, is I haven't listened to these tapes in almost 2 decades. It's all new and fresh. Pretty sure I called in, just can't remember if I'm on one of these tapes. Maybe, I hope I find myself and if I do, I'll say OMG it's MEEEE!
Avatar 4:56pm spacebrother:

Oh man, my wife has the same first initial and surname as "Slash" from Guns and Roses. She used to collect all sorts of crazy messages left on her machine by people who thought that Slash had actually slipped up and gotten his name in the phone book. I'll bug her again and see if we can find it.
Avatar 4:57pm Otis Fodder:

That was a fun net label project from 2003-2006. So many friends on there.
Avatar 4:57pm spacebrother:

I loved Comfortstand. Still do.
Avatar 4:58pm Archivist Vivian:

This exchange is like an internet argument, but more polite.
Avatar 4:58pm Archivist Vivian:

We need more Mar-Tie. I'll forever thank Comfortstand for giving him to us.
Avatar 4:59pm Otis Fodder:

I guess they called in together on 2 phones in the same home. This is 1994.
Avatar 5:01pm Archivist Vivian:

I must know more of the legend of Soulmate Girl. Too bad we'll never know.
  5:02pm Rich in Washington:

weird. I can read the ongoing comments on my work computer, but can't comment, except from my phone via the wfmu app.
  5:03pm RiW:

can only listen on my phone, too. big network outtage here at work.
Avatar 5:05pm Otis Fodder:

I'm going to continue to play these tapes, in order from this one (vol 8) and then start at the early ones, so hopefully we find out together about Soulmate Girl and others. I will not listen before I play them. That's more fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm Webhamster Henry:

I used to produce the FMU Catalog (Chris T was the master curator). Other big tape was the Shemp Meditation tape
  5:05pm RiW:

wasn't Phineas Narco's Midnight Voicejail something like that?
Avatar 5:06pm Otis Fodder:

You did!?! That was my intro to WFMU. The catalog, in like 1995 or 1996.
Avatar 5:06pm Archivist Vivian:

This will be a great journey.

Now I can sing along to A Smile And a Ribbon.
Avatar 5:06pm Archivist Vivian:

Oh, hey. I think my mate Joe Aufricht called in to Bob Larson's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm Webhamster Henry:

The Catalog was printed, available as gopher, web, and via email infobot.
Avatar 5:07pm Archivist Vivian:

I'm sure some of you know who he is, with his spoken word tapes and Rejuvination zines.
Avatar 5:08pm Archivist Vivian:

My bandmate showed him to me, audio of him is on 365 days.
Avatar 5:09pm Otis Fodder:

Thank you for listening to the phone calling portion of today's program. Will need to do this much much more in the future.

I just got back from a walk and I heard a screaming guy on AM radio. Must be prank call portion of the show.

Anton Maiden is dead. :(
Avatar 5:10pm Mr Fab:

he was saying"Baal"? Thought he was a Subgenius saying he worshiped 'Bob.'
Avatar 5:10pm Don-O:

...oops, it's the 666 portion of the show. Is Fire On High coming up?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I thought he was saying Bob as well!! I genuinely thought it was a subgenus thing. Great minds etc.
Avatar 5:12pm Otis Fodder:

I am sure the caller had his rev card in his wallet. Praise Bob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I need some Bob stickers in my studio. Used to have a ton of them. Happy times.

I hope that the radio appearance of Tres & Kitsy get found one day, but I'm not holding my breath.
Avatar 5:17pm Otis Fodder:

I love the Dandelions album.
Avatar 5:18pm Archivist Vivian:

It's a magic experience. Needs a re-release.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Webhamster Henry:

At some point I'll put up a server with pieces of the 1998 version of the WFMU website.
Avatar 5:19pm Otis Fodder:

I've been waiting patiently for a reissue. Hopefully one day. For now I have mp3s to keep me happy. It's a gem.
Avatar 5:19pm Mr Fab:

What's the second book, spacebrother? I bought "The Book of Subgenius" and "Three Fisted Tales" back in the day.

I do remember the night you did OTE with Eat This and you slid into the Puzzling Evidence show after wards. Too bad I wasn't physically there....

Ah, Stereolab solo project!!!!
Avatar 5:21pm Otis Fodder:

That was OTE 1998, with Phineas Narco and dAS (Big City Orchestra). When on with PE and Hal after on KPFA. Day after we played a live show in Oakland with dAS playing a popcorn popping machine and fed the audience. Eat THIS! The eaters must have slack.
Avatar 5:22pm Otis Fodder:

Yes!! Tim Gane's Cavern of Anti-Matter. I almost cued up Neu after... another show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Webhamster Henry:

Yeah Mr. Fab, there's lots to throw in the Jungle Room Mix! Like SHUT UP LITTLE MAN!
Avatar 5:23pm Don-O:

So, what came first: Puzzling Evidence the Sub-Genius or the True Stories version.
Avatar 5:24pm spacebrother:

I was also lucky enough to appear on "More than an Hour, Less Than A Show" with Hal Robins and Doug "Puzzling Evidence" Wellman a few times. I guess in the early 1990s. Do you have any recordings of your shows?
Avatar 5:24pm Archivist Vivian:

Otis. I am curating from my archive of songs from a musician you may not know about and I'm gonna send you a ZIP folder later. You're going to really enjoy it.
Avatar 5:24pm Otis Fodder:

Oh god, I used to have tapes and the best-of CD of Raymond & Peter. We need Shut Up Little Man added to the stream for sure. The documentary is great too!!
Avatar 5:24pm Otis Fodder:

Thanks Viv!!!
Avatar 5:26pm Otis Fodder:

I know a couple are on archive.org OTE archive. Hour of Slack shows on KPFA, I don't have any. I used to send Doug & Hal tapes from 1993-1997 that I made of early Bran Flakes and other odd material. Would send tapes to Don too for OTE. Really great memories.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Webhamster Henry:

I think Shut Up Little Man was made into stage show, if not a musical .
Avatar 5:28pm Mr Fab:

Pretty sure I added a DEVO (dba "The Wipeouters") song into the stream that sampled Shut Up Little Man, but yeah, gotta dig into the source material.
Avatar 5:29pm spacebrother:

Ah, Marty.
Avatar 5:29pm Don-O:

Phinias Narco did a couple of sets of the best of P. E. one from each decade, 80's and 90's. Here's one of them: nationalcynical.bandcamp.com...

This 10min "O Perce" cut is from the soundtrack to a "maple syrup" softcore film, "Y'a Plus De Trou À Percé " from 1971. This is the English version of the album, "Loving and Laughing"
