Did I go back in time to late December? Oh hell

Maybe it's because I grew up listening to him, but I find the mere sound of Harry Harrison's voice quite comforting
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/17/18 9:30pm Zetti:

thanks for the harry harrison

Love this groovy movies song!!!

yeah, it's a good one!
  Wed. 1/17/18 9:48pm Sam P.:

Were you playing off vinyl or was that an effect on the groovy movies track?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/17/18 9:49pm efd:

that was pure natural vinyl.
  Wed. 1/17/18 9:57pm Stevel:

Finally saw the WFMU doc yesterday on Netflix (woot, sick day!?) Could have sworn efd was one of the subliminal cuts at the end. At least, that's how I chose to see it.

I would argue (not vehemently) that Phil Seymour is best known for his top-40 hit "Precious to Me."

Hi Evan!

Hey efd. Digging the show still stuck at work.

Alright, Tripwires! Seattle's finest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/17/18 10:10pm efd:

Jack, for some reason I'm drawing a blank on that Phil Seymour song! I'll have to listen to it - it's on the CD, of course.
Hello hello to medson, Julie, Stevel (I don't think that was me), jmd, 12539, and whoever I missed (sorry!)

I've never heard a version of Needles and Pins that I didn't love.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/17/18 10:55pm Julie M:

Good show, Evan. Must keep my promise to get to bed. I think I'm going to have some ethereal dreams if I take these last tracks to sleep with me. Hopefully there won't be a falling Batman involved, @Switchblade B.

wow i didnt know that Sire era of Searchers very cool. Some great long time bands got signed by sire then, troggs, groovies. Searchers were a surprise though, have to dig into those recordings. S. Stein sure had great taste
