Like a lot of people I saw Meet The Residents when it came out and was amused by the cover but made the mistake of not buying it. I mean, it was in my hand!

Ha! Was talking with somebody just yesterday about FT.

By FT, I mean Firesign Theater, not Franco Twinkie.

Gary, I too loved The Firesign Theater. Around 1969 my father called me into the living room, took off the headphones, handed them to me and said "Here, I think you'll like this." At the time they had a regular show on KPFK.

Bergman used to have a morning radio show in LA on KPFK when I was traversing that goddamn mess of city during the '80s. Every show opened with a different version of "It Ain't Necessarily So."

I found a Negativeland cassette in a thrift store when I started college in the mid-90s, and was immediately hooked.
The residents took a lot longer for me to appreciate....

Oh, and, thanks, Gary, have merriment tomorrow!

My wife appreciated the residents set. First time I've played a show on WFMU with music she knows better than I do.
