Oh nice, my favorite cut from What We Did On Our Holidays. How is this song not a widely beloved classic?

Evening Jeff and everyone. Listening live for the first time after streaming for ages...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/9/17 12:06am Scraps deSelby:

I love "Tale in Hard Time". I think it's the first really great Richard Thompson song.
Avatar Mon. 10/9/17 12:06am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Good choice for a Tom Petty tribute, Jeff.

Jason Aldean (the country singer who was onstage when the shooting in Vegas started) chose to play "Won't Back Down" on Saturday Night Live as a kind of double tribute... i'm sure he meant well, but i couldn't help wondering: *who* won't back down, and from what? With "World War III" trending on Twitter right now, I'm wondering if that's a good song to be propagating in the national psyche (it was sung en masse in a stadium in Florida this weekend before a football game).

(and "Meet on the Ledge". Still, "Tale in Hard Time" moves me even more.)

And "Andmoreagain"! Awesome set

Oh man, earlier today, I saw that Cale is playing a festival in Joshua Tree. Wonder how his live shows are of late?

Fairport's version of "I'll Keep It With Mine" makes me weep
Avatar Mon. 10/9/17 12:17am the Canterbury wood-elf:

The body of Fairport material with Sandy and Richard on it ranks among the finest creations of the human species.
  Mon. 10/9/17 12:18am Carmichael:

I saw Richard Thompson last year. He sang Who Knows Where the Time Goes, and had the audience in the palm of his hand.
  Mon. 10/9/17 12:20am Eiderdown:

Good morning Jeff and the gang! Great set of tunes to start...

Evening Jeff et al...Great show. "Dust On The Nettles" can't get enough of that one.
  Mon. 10/9/17 12:34am DJ E:

Jennifer, It's John Cale I say him see him before he is gone. I am trying to go to the 50th Anniversary show in Brooklyn.
  Mon. 10/9/17 12:36am J Dream:

*i hate hearing "before he's gone". Come on...
  Mon. 10/9/17 12:36am Carmichael:

I’m all for the “see them before they’re gone” concept. I missed a few that I still kick myself over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 10/9/17 12:39am sam:

Cale's playing at Desert Daze. Pretty amazing lineup of artists.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/9/17 12:41am Jennifer_PNW:

Sam, I know! Trying to find a way to go although I'm not much of a fan of festivals these days but never been to Joshua Tree and always wanted to go.

Yep, Carmichael. One reason why I've always wanted to go.

Oh good, I needed to hear this Shannon Lay record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 10/9/17 12:47am sam:

I hate big festivals also, but given the locale and lineup I almost caved. The day that Cale is playing also has Terry and Gyan Riley!

amazing set!

This set keeps getting more beautiful--and Judee Sill is the culmination.

Beautiful Kate Wolf song, I'm not familiar with her. Will check it out, thank you
  Mon. 10/9/17 12:58am J Dream:

Desert Daze was tempting for Terry Riley, alone. The rest of that all-you-can-see buffet, while very good, I'd rather see at... not-a-festival
  Mon. 10/9/17 12:59am Carmichael:

The Turtles! That’s who sang that Judee Sill song. Finally figured it out ...

Avatar Mon. 10/9/17 1:11am northguineahills:

I'm not an big american football fan, but my brothers and my father got me tix to a Gators football game (I just moved to Gainesville, where Tom Petty is originally from), and on the loudspeakers and video screen, in the fourth quarter, they did Petty's, "Don't back down". Every one in the stadium sang it, (including me). 'tis was a nice gesture.

  Mon. 10/9/17 1:17am zenkoan:

Seconding the rec of Tom Petty's Wildflowers album. Especially the track "You Wreck Me', which belongs in the Three Chord Hall of Fame, and which is To Be Played at Maximum Volume while you sing along.
Avatar Mon. 10/9/17 1:18am blankemon:

Wildflowers is indeed a swell album.
  Mon. 10/9/17 1:20am Hippie Jesus:

@Northguineahills I saw video of that, pretty cool tribute. I've also read that in the past, Tom Petty signed some Florida Gator football helmets to raise money at auction......those helmets are now fetching thousands

Avatar Mon. 10/9/17 1:21am the Canterbury wood-elf:

'76 is seriously underrated. I'd vote for this all-GD second hour becoming a regular feature of the show if continues to be this well curated : )
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/9/17 1:22am Jennifer_PNW:

Yeah, forgot about the She's the One soundtrack. Not a Beck fan, but that cover was on.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/9/17 1:28am Jeff Conklin:

I hate to muddy the clear water with talk of money but just a reminder that the station needs help during this end of year fundraiser. I don't need to tall you about shit you can get because you know what you get.


Thanks in advance and if you can't give right now, keep coming back.

If any of you guys are still up at 5, I'm going to play a Tom Petty set.

Anyone heard it? So incredible!

Yeah, Johnny, it was always fun trying to figure out where they were heading...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/9/17 1:49am Jeff Conklin:

@Johnny: Great record, played it on this very program. Two good friends. Have you heard Tony's live set from my show recorded last year?

Would that Tony Pasquarosa set be in the Free Music Archives, Jeff?

The Dead are just GREAT; and it is everything

Sorry if I missed it on your set, Jeff. I dont believe I heard the live set from your program either. I didnt know about it. But I definitely will hear it now.

When I hear the Grateful Dead on the radio, I simply cannot change the station fast enough. The music is dull dull dull. I hear nothing original.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/9/17 2:01am Jeff Conklin:

Can someone explain to me the appeal of trolling on the internet?

that would be a completely separate subject but,

  Mon. 10/9/17 2:05am Mark R:

Thanks, Jennifer--that's what the archives are for! I'm puzzled why anyone would tune into a show that has been playing an hour of live Dead since I can remember just to troll the Dead and their fans. No one is holding a gun to your head forcing you to listen.
  Mon. 10/9/17 2:10am Mark R:

'76 was the year they did that one short 10-city tour or something, right? I saw their show in Detroit that year.
  Mon. 10/9/17 2:39am Mark R:

Curiosity got the better of me, so I googled it--the Dead did indeed do a 9-city "East Coast" Fall tour that ended in Detroit 10/3/76, a Sunday night. I was there. They also played some East Coast shows that summer, and a tiny handful of West Coast shows later in the year, but it wasn't their usual heavy touring schedule. They were just getting their legs back after an 18-month "retirement," as I recall.
  Mon. 10/9/17 2:45am Mark R:

Wow, this John Jackson track is incredible. Beautiful set all in all, gost gorgeous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 10/9/17 2:53am Andrew Waterloo:

No sure if I'm a fan of the grateful dead, but I've stayed up an extra hour here and there listening to these Grateful Dead sets.

Much appreciated, as always, Jeff. Until next week...
