Hello Mr Fab!
Avatar 2:08pm Mr Fab:

Otis, you had a label called Disaster Relief? Who was on it? Any remaining traces of it's existence out there in 'web-land anywhere?
Avatar 2:10pm Mr Fab:

This Serge reminds me of that lovely old ad jingle: "Band de Soliel, for the San Tropez tan..."
Avatar 2:12pm Otis Fodder:

Web not that I know of. Early Bran Flakes were on it, a couple of comps, other artists noise to rap. Went through my own catalog (mom) + wifflefist, wheelchair of old men, etc... Ran from 1990-1995.

Hello! Here for a bit, until I venture out to see some actual humans play records and synthesizers. I like waffle bunny.
Avatar 2:14pm Otis Fodder:

Hi GST and Kat! Oh god yes, enjoy Sunday day, it's beautiful here (like the bunny).
Avatar 2:15pm Mr Fab:

Hey Kats 'n' Grannys! Who are you seeing playing records and synths (At the same time?!)
Avatar 2:15pm Linda Lee:

hi Otis! all ears here too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

whaaat? i can't hear you, i have a waffle on my ears
Avatar 2:16pm Linda Lee:

this Lalo track is *so* 'Jaws' period.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Kat in Chicago:

Mr Fab: just some friends of mine and other local nerds, and they are (unfortunately?) not playing records and synths simultaneously :) Otis: I'll be in your neck of the woods a week from Tuesday, hoping for nice weather then too!
Avatar 2:19pm Linda Lee:

wait .. that's a waffle?
Avatar 2:19pm Mr Fab:

...or are you just happy to see me?
Avatar 2:20pm Otis Fodder:

Hi Linda! On the playlist there is a bunny with a waffle by the name of Oolong (linked the wikipedia for little Oolong too) - en.wikipedia.org...

This show is endorsed by bunny spirits (I wish)
Avatar 2:20pm Otis Fodder:

Fab... haaaaaaa
Avatar 2:21pm Mr Fab:

oh HECK yeah clicky-starring this track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

i think that many bunnies would enjoy this show very much… good music to bounce to!
Avatar 2:21pm Linda Lee:

but of course it is. they're very much attracted to good music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Kat in Chicago:

I have friends with two bunnies, maybe I can get them to put the show on
Avatar 2:23pm Otis Fodder:

I could dedicate shows to pets! I'm making a note of that. This week's show goes to _____ roommate of ____ who lives in _____. !!
Avatar 2:24pm Linda Lee:

yes, i see what you're calling a 'waffle'. assumed it was just characteristic of the breed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm Kat in Chicago:

haha LL
Avatar 2:25pm Linda Lee:

unusual for sure, but hey. they're doing crazy things in labs these days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Otis: yeah, i like the idea of folx nominating a friend's pet…especially if they're in another state or country
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

I used to keep a blank cassette ready to record while i played vinyl and whenever the groove would repeat, i would record 8 repetitions of it… the resulting soundtrack is wildly entertaining!
Avatar 2:29pm Linda Lee:

some of that stuff sounds amazing.
Avatar 2:30pm Mr Fab:

yeah like what Christian Marcley does, putting stickers on records to get them to skip at the right spot.
Avatar 2:31pm Mr Fab:

diggin this Casio Sly Stone
Avatar 2:34pm Linda Lee:

thought of Christian Marclay right away! believe he also used glue & disparate recordings.
Avatar 2:35pm Linda Lee:

a secret ambition. this is why i won't get rid of my piles of not very good records.
Avatar 2:36pm Linda Lee:

i think i must, though. honestly. :-D
Avatar 2:38pm Mr Fab:

I'd poke you a few times, but I'm married. (boom-tish!) But fo' sho, would be great to add a collection of lounge swingers. AND you gotta send me your collection of dialogue samples you played last week.
Avatar 2:38pm Mr Fab:

Linda, me loves record deconstruction stuff, so go for it pleeze!
Avatar 2:38pm Otis Fodder:

Will do Fab. Still going to get the samples from last week + more.
Avatar 2:40pm Linda Lee:

ooh! thanks for encouragement! :-)

well, let's have it!
no lube.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

i wonder what G.A.Y.D.A.R. stands for?
Avatar 2:44pm Linda Lee:

never thought it stood for anything! :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

but there are dots after each letter!
Avatar 2:46pm Linda Lee:

i know! maybe we're meant to say them each, but they don't stand for anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

awwwww, darn :(
Avatar 2:47pm Linda Lee:

we've got the florida snowbirds here in the catskills, too. they come back with the daffodilts.

Station Manager Ken is a big Laurice fan and has often played "Faded Rose" and "Afraid." Also Laurice performed at the record fair, what, three years ago? I went to the record fair that year but unfortunately missed that set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Score one for Linda Lee!!!
Avatar 2:53pm Linda Lee:

i'm guessing too love. :-D
Avatar 2:53pm Otis Fodder:

Yessss! I have heard Laurice on Ken's show. I found out about Laurice from WFMU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Kat in Chicago:

Hard to imagine where else one would find out about Laurice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

oh, butt it's so good!

Gimme All Yobs Dirty And Raunchy
Avatar 2:56pm Linda Lee:

butt of course :-D
Avatar 2:57pm Linda Lee:

down on Cherry Grove back in the day, maybe, Kat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

OK i am totally obsessed with Laurice from now on. Thanks a lot, Otis.
Avatar 2:58pm Linda Lee:

it's true, Ken does love Laurice in a perverse sort of way.
not the only one, apparently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Kat in Chicago:

oh god, the cover of Discoballs, ugh
Avatar 3:00pm Otis Fodder:

Here is where I ordered 4 of Laurice's albums. The 2 Best Of releases are amazing, highly recommend those... laurice.bandcamp.com...
Avatar 3:03pm Linda Lee:

what a lovely set, Otis! superb!
Avatar 3:04pm Otis Fodder:

I know, what where they thinking. Hey everybody, let's record a Pink Floyd disco album. I'm happy it exists, but god, some of it, ha!
Avatar 3:05pm Mr Fab:

oh, it probly stands for Godly American Young Die-hard Accountant Republican
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Kat in Chicago:

I was objecting more to the cover artwork, haha!
Avatar 3:06pm Linda Lee:

"Die-Hard" being decisive..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Yeah, in a parade of gawdawful album covers, it really stands out
Avatar 3:08pm Otis Fodder:

I really try to include cover art as it conveys... ever so... much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

yet i still don't understand the Cumba Cumba cover, and i'm afraid to go to sleep tonight
Avatar 3:08pm Linda Lee:

lots of the bad ones seem to involve boobs as a design element.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

when in doubt—BOOBS!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm Kat in Chicago:

Avatar 3:09pm Otis Fodder:

There are songs about food on the album... I just don't know... is that Apple and Ketchup?!
Avatar 3:09pm Linda Lee:

they just stop trying!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

why am i the only one who has clicky starred this? G.E.N.I.U.S.
Avatar 3:10pm Linda Lee:

isn't that meant to be blood? a bloody apple core?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Kat in Chicago:

I'm still waiting for "Visions" to chime in

Happy early birthday, Grunty! I use 1969 when I want to falsify my actual birth year (the real one is a bit earlier)

those Brit Girl Sounds of the 60s just knock me out. i was old enough to fall in love with those cool birds when they made the scene. they were so beautiful. the hair! the makeup! the clothes!
Avatar 3:24pm Linda Lee:

the eyes alone. stunning.
Avatar 3:26pm Mr Fab:

hi Rich!
I luv luv luv this song "Street King," but the copy I have is under the name The Orange Groove. Was this their real name?
Avatar 3:27pm Linda Lee:

not a copy cover, Mr. Fab? same recording?
Avatar 3:28pm Linda Lee:

the early 70s were just so fabulous. a profitable recording industry was brand new & absolutely everything was recorded. fantastic.
Avatar 3:28pm Mr Fab:

Really sounded like the same recording.
Avatar 3:28pm Otis Fodder:

Ah, unsure on that version Fab. The original 7" of 2 songs by Jane & Eve And The Creations are all I know of by that group. Thankfully it's comped really nice.
Avatar 3:30pm Mr Fab:

There's a b side?! Great, I must hear! i have that song on the same album Tony Coulter has:
Avatar 3:31pm Otis Fodder:

Will play it next Fab. :)
Avatar 3:32pm Linda Lee:

wow, that's *just* the kind of drawing i did as a kid to avoid drawing hands!
Avatar 3:37pm Mr Fab:

Amazing, another song by this group. And searching "Jane & Eve And The Creations" in dicogs i now actually have a song writing credit. All my research on "Street King" over the years had been futile. Thank you Otis!
Avatar 3:38pm Otis Fodder:

Thank you... I just heard about that single a couple of months ago. Happy it's out there reissued.

Avatar 5:00pm Linda Lee:

marvelous. commercial radio, honestly.
Avatar 5:01pm Otis Fodder:

So many commercials on both sides of this tape (and reissued CD). Will need to play the other side on a future show as well.
Avatar 5:03pm Mr Fab:

how...HOW can ppl listen to commercial radio?!
Avatar 5:04pm Linda Lee:

knock out the music that offers relief & it's continual discomfort. no wonder crappy music sounded good.

Avatar 5:18pm Mr Fab:

just looked it up - Fanny Brice actually had 3 husbands, inc Billy Rose. In case that question should ever come up again.
Avatar 5:20pm Linda Lee:

she was popular in vaudeville! how would some 70s kid know about that?
  5:21pm Dave In St Albans UK:

"Moron Music" describes 99.99% of UK radio right now. Hilarity plus.
Avatar 5:22pm Otis Fodder:

Oh yes...Moron Music. An accurate description. Here in Canada as well on the commercial FM stations.
Avatar 5:22pm Linda Lee:

that was *not* the early 60s. misleading.
Avatar 5:23pm Linda Lee:

frankly, i haven't the vaguest idea what they do on commercial radio in the US now.
Avatar 5:27pm Mr Fab:

Same here. i am thankfully no longer exposed to it much. But that certainly was a painfully funny reminder of why I was thrilled to discover non-commercial radio.
Avatar 5:28pm Otis Fodder:

At the grocery is about the only time I hear commercial radio these days - or the same-styled-playlist.
Avatar 5:32pm Linda Lee:

here's a query: was ny commercial radio actually better when i loved it in the 1960s, or was i too young to know any better?
Avatar 5:32pm Linda Lee:

what i seem to remember is that it wasn't so incredibly formulaic in terms of what we heard. r & b, soul, pop, folk all together.
Avatar 5:33pm Otis Fodder:

I have a soft spot for late 70's and early 80's AM Radio.. like the songs from this mix here. I was 10 years old in 1979. ;)
Avatar 5:33pm Otis Fodder:

..and I love 60's pop AM radio sounds.
Avatar 5:34pm Linda Lee:

& then there's the nostalgic feeling of being very young that is fully emotional.. :-)
Avatar 5:35pm Linda Lee:

i think i was done with commercial radio by senior year in high school, '78.
i'm enjoying the disco set, though! lots of this on commercial radio then.
there was a genre seperation by then.
Avatar 5:36pm Mr Fab:

playlists were def more open in the '60s. commercial DJs had more input. An indirect form of payola hit the '70s, and the descent began.
Avatar 5:38pm Mr Fab:

Top40 radio with its' hyper DJs and upbeat music was much more entertaining than the "adult-contemporary" snooze-fests that Negativland were spoofing.

right, right.
i wonder if that helped precipitate discernable 'markets' & so more thorough commercialization in the interests of securing 'market share'.. which made it *very dull*.

responding to your payola comment, Mr F.

this set actually reminds me of new york in the mid 70s, which was really a nice place to be, despite the common narrative. a kid could run freely & learn!
Avatar 5:42pm Linda Lee:

('kid' as in teenager.) it was a very cool city.

Mix series I made tapes of in the mid-1990s, inspired by my late 70s/early 80s AM radio listening to the advent of school and beach/block parties leading up my first DJ gig at a roller rink in San Diego in '85.

nice!!! :-)
Avatar 5:46pm Linda Lee:

it is horribly time consuming to transfer tape to digital, but eventually they will just turn to crap. consider doing it with these. the sound quality is still great!
Avatar 5:46pm Otis Fodder:

I need to transfer my old mixes. 3 Disko Volumes. I would cry if the tapes break. Literally. Too many memories.
Avatar 5:47pm Linda Lee:

they won't sound any better the longer you wait, either.
if it matters to you, do it soon.
Avatar 5:48pm Linda Lee:

the vibe is really enjoyable.
Avatar 5:48pm Otis Fodder:

Thanks for the push. Going to now. I have them all out here.
Avatar 5:49pm Linda Lee:

In the UK it was the offshore pirate radio that shook the establishment in the 1960's. We had some highly different commercial radio from 1973 which lost its way ( I think) when it became formula driven. Then once again it got exciting with the land based pirates in the 1980's . By this century it died again. Apart from BBC 6 Music and Resonance FM in London everything is depressingly predictable to me. Finding the WFMU's streams has given me hope....

Dave, i've got friends in Scotland who tell me the same. seems you're worse off than we are here, in terms of alternatives. which surprises me.
  5:52pm Dave In St Albans UK:

Another musical treat Otis. Thanks.
Avatar 5:54pm Linda Lee:

thanks so much Otis!
  5:54pm Dave In St Albans UK:

@Linda Sadly it's so true. Just one or two big companies networking the same limited crap. My wife happily listens to it. Depressed me.
Avatar 5:56pm Linda Lee:

argh. so depressing. thank god for streaming!! i'm stuck with it as well, being in a rural area with very little radio, let alone good radio!
Avatar 5:57pm Linda Lee:

the rise of christian radio has been the weirdest recent development here. alongside the christian right's political power it's also heavily propagandized in media. grotesque, really.
Avatar 5:58pm Linda Lee:

think i'd rather deal with secular crap radio than religious crap radio.
Avatar 5:58pm Otis Fodder:

I can't remember the last time I turned on commerical radio. I do have an old FM radio here I listen to 2 local college stations on though, that's fantastic.
Avatar 5:59pm Linda Lee:

beautiful mix, Otis! nice.
Avatar 5:59pm Mr Fab:

Now this funky/old-skool is (part of)my roots. Thanks for another 4 hour marathon of love, Otis. See y'all at the Record Roulette Club tomorrow!
  5:59pm Dave In St Albans UK:

We have streaming. Yippee!
Avatar 6:00pm Linda Lee:
