Hey Rich!
Avatar 7:03pm Mr Fab:

Another flying saucer show! Cool, cuz I keep watching the skies,as instructed.
Avatar 7:04pm Mr Fab:

Really, 1951? Is this the first flying saucer record?
Avatar 7:04pm spacebrother:

You should never take your eyes off the the skies. Even when driving.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Rich in Washington:

British novelty stuff about saucers reminds me of that peculiar UK film The Supersonic Saucer.
Avatar 7:05pm spacebrother:

I think I've heard of that one. Gotta look it up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Rich in Washington:

That's a good question, Mr. Fab. I wonder which was the first.
Avatar 7:06pm spacebrother:

I would like to look into that issue.
Avatar 7:07pm Mr Fab:

Fun-to-know-fact: Elvis Costello's (who Mrs Fab and I just saw live) father used to sing for Joe Loss.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Rich in Washington:

A large portion of the Discogs wantlist are UFO spoken word records. I don't own as many as I'd like, but I can dream.
Avatar 7:09pm spacebrother:

Wow, 2 degrees of separation!
Avatar 7:09pm spacebrother:

I think Don Bolles has a few spoken UFO records.
Avatar 7:10pm spacebrother:

Dammit. Damn Discogs. Dammit.
Avatar 7:11pm Mr Fab:

"Strange Enterprises" is at 5907 W Pico? Wow, let's go visit Dr Strange! I imagine he has a lab-ORE-atory, with dry ice and tesla coils.
Avatar 7:13pm spacebrother:

He probably did. He died in 2008. I met him once. He was cool. I gave him a copy of the record, which he said he hadn't seen in years.
Avatar 7:15pm Mr Fab:

The Carpenters' "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft" pops up in the stream sometimes. I imagine how confused listeners must be to see THAT group playing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Rich in Washington:

I think I remember hearing this song on Over The Edge, one of the UFO episodes. His vocals sound so weirdly clipped, almost time-compressed.
Avatar 7:16pm spacebrother:

Yeah, i have 3 other versions of Calling Occupants. I'll get to them. You guys have heard them , I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Rich in Washington:

I had Klaatu's version on me and my wife's gigantic 70s playlist. It drives her bonkers that it isn't the Carpenters.
Avatar 7:17pm Mr Fab:

You're right, Rich, like his voice has been digitally sped-up. But where did they get that kind of technology back when this record was made?!
Avatar 7:17pm spacebrother:

The vocals DO sound a little strange. Like the guy had some sort of physical issue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Rich in Washington:

Or just weird recording, like lots of audio compression, so his talk/sing delivery sounds even weirder.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Rich in Washington:

Avatar 7:20pm spacebrother:

Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Rich in Washington:

on Brand X Records. The mystery deepens!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Rich in Washington:

If you get to the bottom of it, a couple of men driving a black cadillac will come visit you.
Avatar 7:21pm spacebrother:

I wish.
Avatar 7:23pm Mr Fab:

Marlin Wallace says that he kept getting attacked by Communist rays being shot at him. I think he was the guy...
Avatar 7:23pm spacebrother:

Yes, I wanted to get into that, but forgot.
Avatar 7:25pm Mr Fab:

Sexologists remind men not to ignore the two little men in the flying saucer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Rich in Washington:

I love the oscillator noises that open these UFO records. Who made them? I like to think it's always the same guy.
Avatar 7:26pm spacebrother:

Now THERE's an idea for a song! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Rich in Washington:

Avatar 7:27pm spacebrother:

The cover indicates "Sound Effects: Movie-Tech, Hollywood"
Avatar 7:28pm spacebrother:

Probably a sound effects library.
Avatar 7:28pm Mr Fab:

If you didn't catch the debut of DJ Henry's wildly fun "Record Roulette Club" earlier today, check the archives. One word: BONKERS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Rich in Washington:

Are you following the making of the documentary They Rode The Flying Saucers? It looks promising.
Avatar 7:30pm spacebrother:

Looked like it. I'm struggling to keep up with the shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Rich in Washington:

It WAS very good! The lineup is awesome! Getting awesomer by the day.
Avatar 7:31pm spacebrother:

I thought that was released already. Maybe I was thinking of something else. Is it partly or mostly animated?
Avatar 7:31pm spacebrother:

Side 2.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Rich in Washington:

I think partly. It's not out yet, but has been in the making for a long time (which may or may not point to it being somewhat questionable).
Avatar 7:32pm spacebrother:

He really stretched this out with the reading of incessant lists of people, things, names. I guess he really liked nouns.
Avatar 7:33pm spacebrother:

I may have interviewed the director on my show a couple of years back.
Avatar 7:35pm spacebrother:

I DID. Patrick Connelly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Rich in Washington:

Somewhere I have a Google Doc of a database of my favorite bad UFO documentaries. I had plans of making it into an old-school printed zine. I will probably never get it done, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Rich in Washington:

That's great!
Avatar 7:38pm Mr Fab:

Thanks for posting this on the 365 Project, Greg - I chopped out 4 excerpts for the stream. The strange Mr Stranges may thus pop up between songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Rich in Washington:

I keep getting Frank Stranges mixed up with Frank Edwards. I have one of the latter's UFO records.
Avatar 7:40pm spacebrother:

My last song today was just on the stream before the show
Avatar 7:40pm spacebrother:

I didn't know Frank Edwards made a record!
Avatar 7:41pm spacebrother:

I'd like to see that list of documentaries.
Avatar 7:41pm Mr Fab:

Rich, you could post your bad UFO film thing on the Jungle Room blog. Been so busy I haven't had a chance to yep you all to the blog, but when i can come up for air, will do so. That's the sorta thing that's good for blogs. Facebook posts are good for news updates, but quickly drop into oblivion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Rich in Washington:

Frank Edwards - Flying Saucers Presents Flying Saucers - Serious Business. 1966
  7:43pm Colin and Dani in Durham, England:

Morning x
Avatar 7:44pm spacebrother:

Thank you!
Avatar 7:44pm spacebrother:

Up early there in the UK!
Avatar 7:45pm Mr Fab:

Or staying up late!
Avatar 7:46pm spacebrother:

That's right, only 12:45 AM...
Avatar 7:47pm Mr Fab:

"Valiant Thor," ha.
Avatar 7:47pm spacebrother:

Oh Rich, I HAVE seen that Edwards album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Rich in Washington:

That book sounds fascinating!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Rich in Washington:

There's supposed to be some kind of shindig in Chehalis, Washington late next Summer commemorating Kenneth Arnold's fateful flight. Not sure why they didn't do it in 2017. Whatever.
Avatar 7:50pm Mr Fab:

Oh sure, it's a different Buddy Clinton, that's what they WANT you to think!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Rich in Washington:

This is hilarious!
Avatar 7:58pm spacebrother:

Similar commentary on the amazing song "Outer Space" by the Kirby Stone 4.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm Rich in Washington:

Great show spacebrother!
Avatar 7:59pm spacebrother:

Thank for listening. It's really exciting when Other DJs listen.
Avatar 8:00pm Mr Fab:

Big Wednesday here at the Room - the debut of TWO new shows.
Thx, Greg, really enjoyed this.
Avatar 8:01pm spacebrother:

Thanks for being there and for all of your hard work!
