Hi coel! Cannily observed. Now I'm scrambling for some Ethiopian music!

Thanks Flash! I feel like you've played that Herbie Mann joint before on the Explorers Room

I've never even heard it!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 10:12pm Little Danny:

Man that surprises me! Cool album, always very cheap

Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 10:17pm Little Danny:

Melinda! There you are! Hi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 10:21pm coelacanth∅:

that Peter Wright was excellent. 'reminds me a little of spain. (the band)
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 10:22pm Little Danny:

Glad you dug, coel. He's insanely prolific, Wright. Don't know Spain tho!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 10:27pm coelacanth∅:

well, the first album is all i can vouch for. i sought out some later spain material and was somewhat disappointed - but i can't honestly tell from that brief excursion. the first one is high on my list. an album that if i'm in the mood for it nothing else will do.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 10:28pm Little Danny:

I know what you mean by right mood - right time - right music, coel. Definitely intrigued, will look into Spain
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 10:31pm still b/p:

Mic hot?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 10:31pm coelacanth∅:

Danny the mic break is burning up a little.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 10:32pm coelacanth∅:

-oh, still's on it!
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 10:36pm Flash Strap:

love that record, but apparently Denny doesn't even play on the thing! it's a dirty business
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 10:42pm Little Danny:

Thanks for the mic heads-up, y'all. Still getting used to this durned new audio console here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 10:42pm melinda:

Nice psych
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 10:45pm Little Danny:

Glad you liked it, Melinda. I've been going through one of my psychedelic-pop phases here at home again
  Thu. 10/5/17 10:57pm Dano59:

oooh! I love the Shadow Casters. Nice high school boys. Best B-side ever.
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 10:58pm Dano59:

sorry for the lateness; was dozing and missed first set.
  Thu. 10/5/17 10:58pm MrFab:

THis 'going to the moon' sounds like the same chords to "Im A Believer."
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 10:58pm Little Danny:

Hi Dano59! Yes! Sensitive teens are sensitive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 10:58pm melinda:

Yeah, I thought it sounded familiar.
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 10:59pm Dano59:

Spain is Josh Haden's band, Charlie's son. Good stuff. Evocative.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 10:59pm melinda:

Great band names.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 10:59pm Little Danny:

I was gonna delay the show until I heard from you Dano.
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 10:59pm Dano59:

Do nothing til you hear from me
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:00pm Dano59:

srsly I have no pull here. You da man Dan
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 11:00pm Little Danny:

Hola SenorFab! I never woulda even noticed that. Gotta do a side-by-side now
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 11:01pm Little Danny:

Oh shit, that's awesome. I know Petra Haden's work. Mostly again thru WFMU
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:03pm Dano59:

Petra is so cool. She and sisters (triplets) were also in that dog. Rachel (I think) is married to Jack Black. Or the other one is.
And 'The Haden Triplets' LP on third Man a couple years ago. Sublime folky harmonies as only siblings can pull off. Dad brought em up right on traditional music
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 11:03pm Little Danny:

Oh man so many leads and names to follow through on. Thanks Dano!
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:04pm Dano59:

I shared a smoke and a chat with Charlie once
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:05pm Dano59:

Possibly all too modern for your show but still ... Petra's stuff with Bill Frisell might be in yr wheelhouse
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 11:07pm melinda:

I like what I've heard of the Haden triplets.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 11:14pm Little Danny:

Thanks Dano - I dig all sortsa music that I don't get around to playing on this show, so all tips are appreciated!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 11:15pm Little Danny:

How were my mic levels during the last break?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 11:16pm coelacanth∅:

i never heard that dog. i quite like Petra though. (as well)
...i have a friend who's first name is Haden, so i asked her why she was named that, a surname, and she said she was named after a distant relative that she doesn't know. she'd never heard of Charlie Haden. she's a singer and composer and a music therapist, so i have to wonder.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 11:18pm coelacanth∅:

i think the levels were better Danny
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:20pm Dano59:

I think the family's from Oklahoma, coel. When Charlie died Bob Brainen played a recording of him at 2 or 4 years old singing with his family on a country radio show. Wild.
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:21pm Dano59:

sounded OK to me Danny. A tad louder than what preceded during the music but I usually have to turn UP mic breaks on the FMU streams.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 11:22pm Little Danny:

Okay, thanks!
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:23pm Dano59:

in a quid pro quo I'm gonna look up Peter Wright and listen to that VU track some more too.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 11:23pm Little Danny:

I seem to remember a good Charlie Haden interview with Terry Gross along the way
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:24pm Dano59:

yes! Heard that replayed when he passed. That musta been early 2014 or before. Remembering WHERE I listened, 2 moves ago.
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:27pm northguineahills:

back, sounds perfect!
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:29pm Dano59:

I remember this. Clever title, Oscalypso
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:29pm Dano59:

I do love hearing the Office Naps ... Hits! in this context
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 11:30pm coelacanth∅:

i've got to look into Peter Wright as well. (reading about that dog now)
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:32pm Dano59:

'90s indie as I recall. Never really big but had some renown.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 11:32pm Little Danny:

Ha, thanks for mentioning Office Naps Dano!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 11:33pm Little Danny:

I've heard like 15% of Wright's discography but "Desolation, Beauty, Violence" and "Yellow Horizon" are my faves by him
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 11:36pm coelacanth∅:

the other Peter Wrights (2 of whom are musicians) are better represented on the web. discogs is on it though.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/5/17 11:39pm Little Danny:

right on time NGH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 11:41pm coelacanth∅:

hmm, i just realised i have a that dog cassette. duh.
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:42pm Dano59:

I noticed that Coel! Also been tripping over various Haden triplet factoids on wiki. Tanya's page led me to Gene Ween for some reason.
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:42pm Dano59:

pop that sucker in the player after the show!
Avatar Thu. 10/5/17 11:44pm Dano59:

I palpitated a little during Paula Castle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 11:48pm coelacanth∅:

haha! i have clicked a couple of wikilinks but haven't fallen down that particular wormhole yet! (maybe cuz i'm doing 4 things at once) ...i'll pack a snack.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/5/17 11:58pm coelacanth∅:

Dano i just saw @11.42, pt.2 ...i think i'll pull out that dog for the morning, and pull the spain cassette out for tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/6/17 12:00am coelacanth∅:

(and maybe some Charlie Haden; and Petra sings the who sell out for tomorrow; and maybe the who sell out too! - what the hell!)
  Fri. 10/6/17 12:03am JtotheK:

Enjoyed the show - thanks Danny!
