There's no shortage of great Equals songs, but I think "Green Light" is my favorite.

Oooh..another nice track from the Ork compilation.

Nice chord changes by salad boys.
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 9:57pm JakeGould:

FWIW, this Guardian article is a nice overview on the gestation and creation of the Ork Records box set. Have to thank “Angry Mom Records” for lots of the ephemera that was recovered as well. www.theguardian.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 9:58pm Stevel:

Good evening. Working from home after a virus kept us off computers all day at work (not as relaxing as you might think.) Great to be here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 9:59pm efd:

I was just reading that article earlier today, courtesy of a fellow listener! It's what pushed me to finally crack open that box!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 10:00pm efd:

hi Stevel, better a computer virus than a personal one at least.
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 10:08pm JakeGould:

@Stevel: Ahhh, so your office has fallen prey to th 4th day of Hankkah virus. Also known as the pre-December 13 advent virus.

Wow! “Novella” sounds a lot like “Lush”. novellasinderlyn.bandcamp.com

Great set, EFD.

Hi EFD :)
Hi Funk Fans :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 10:18pm Stevel:

Our virus was primarily non-denominational (although apparently, it was the Ransom virus, which hardly seems festive to me.)

Danne D!
  Wed. 12/9/15 10:19pm Eddy in Australia:

@EFD: Ha! I deliberately didn't mention the Kline/Cates connection to you. A good tune is a good tune, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 10:19pm Stevel:

Evening (or morning) Eddy!

Hey Stevel :)

DJ Stashu always leaves the reverb on odd settings.
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 10:20pm Danne D:

Not sure if Evan mentioned it already, but just in case you haven't heard, former WFMU host and Canadian treasure Nardwuar suffered a stroke this past weekend and is currently recovering :( exclaim.ca...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 10:21pm Uncle Michael:

Evan, are you supposed to be poking around the fur-lined fallout shelter miles beneath the Earth's crust?

@JakeGould, thanks for the ORK article. Amazing they were able to get it out.
  Wed. 12/9/15 10:22pm Eddy in Australia:

Hey Stevel! It's 2pm on a sunny Thursday afternoon here. Got EFD and the cricket on.
@Danne: Sheesh, best wishes to Nardwuar

Hey some of us WELCOME the "baseball-less months" around here ;-)

The Winter Meetings are baseball, man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 10:27pm Cubicle Carl:

Thanks, Danne D for the info. Sorry to hear that bit of news. Many belly laughs occur while listening to Nardwuar. I wish him a speedy recovery.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 10:28pm efd:

hey Eddy! Ha, that's pretty funny -- boy was I surprised!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 10:34pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I hope and trust that Nardwuar will be back again good as new very soon.

awesome pile of rock this set

oh shit. healing and positive vibes to Nardwuar.
Thanks Danne D.
  Wed. 12/9/15 10:41pm Eddy in Australia:

Whoa, how have I never heard that Screams track before? Love it. Better look 'em up ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 10:45pm Jeff from Rahway:

Nardwuar is a fantastic interviewer. Speedy recovery!
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 10:45pm Danne D:

From my brief internet research - Screams hailed from Champaign, Illinois. Same town as REO Speedwagon and Poster Children.

Cheap Trick hailed from Rockford, Illinois.

Taping Kurt Vile on Colbert :) Actually performances usually are at the end so you guys can probably tune in live after Evan's show :)
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:26pm JakeGould:

@DanneD: Taping? Like actual tape? Remember to “Bee Kind • Rewind.”
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:26pm Danne D:

@JakeGould :) sure
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 11:29pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Jake Gould - I think he's going to put his cassette recorder next to the TV speaker and record the sound.
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:31pm coelacanth:

ahem- i've never done that...never.
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:32pm JakeGould:

Jesus I love this AC/DC track. And the official video is great; very DIY. www.youtube.com...
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:33pm JakeGould:

Guys… I’m joking. I’m actually recording this show on a Hi-Fi VHS recorder in LP mode with a 8 hour tape. Imagine: 8 hours of WFMU on one cassette!
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:36pm coelacanth:

do you have it directly connected to your clock-radio or are you using microphones?
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:36pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: I built a cabinet out of plywood and lined with with egg cartons. Put some 5 pound weights on top of it and it’s solid!
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:37pm coelacanth:

Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:45pm coelacanth:

really though Jake when i was little that kind of thing was a revelation!
i tried many ways to hook up my panasonic mono cassette recorder directly to the record player. it got to the point that i'd un-plug everything, make the connections, plug it all into an extension cord and stand outside my bedroom to plug it into the outlet- just in case something exploded!
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:48pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: In 1980 I was so excited about “The Empire Strikes Back” coming out I would just record any mention or review or preview of the movie on audio cassettes from the TV. Yup. Did that all.
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:49pm coelacanth:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 11:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

This English Beat song makes me feel good. I guess I had good times when it was played in the 80s.
  Wed. 12/9/15 11:53pm Eddy in Australia:

^^^ What he said! Good times indeed.
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:53pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: But I recorded them on ultra el-cheap bootleg audio cassettes my dad would get from whatever store he bought discount stuff from. Like the place that sold 4 packs of Everready batteries with the cat on them before they started leaking and junk. Worked for my needs but never lasted.

And yeah, “Save it for Later” is an ace song.
  Wed. 12/9/15 11:56pm Eddy in Australia:

Forget it, Jake, it's AnalogTown.
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:57pm JakeGould:

If I recall correctly I believe Mary Wing played a fairly awesome set of “Save it for Later” covers a while back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 11:57pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Loved the Public Image Ltd and the AC/DC!
Avatar Wed. 12/9/15 11:57pm coelacanth:

"realistic c-120" (radio shack brand) 3-pack for about 5 bucks. that's what i used- until i realised that even at that price it wasn't worth it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/9/15 11:57pm efd:

Thanks for listening everyone! Remember - next week it's the Holiday Music Funktacular, and then in three weeks it's my best of 2015!
