"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Listening to Steve Gunn do push-ups was strangely compelling radio

LL: day off, about to head out from Hudson Hts. to Brooklyn soon...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:30am melinda:

This is exciting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:30am Ken From Hyde Park:

Yes, now we can wake up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:30am Linda Lee:

@M ~ the song is Everlasting Love. originally sung by Carl Carlton in the late 70s i believe. that's all i know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:31am crateslinger:

@Ike - We're sort of counting on him, pixie dust is no match for pulverized marbles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:31am GeorgeSimian:

So much better than the usual "wake up"! So tired of that one.

This is so good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:32am Linda Lee:

Hudson Heights to Brooklyn! a pleasant trip i hope!

I'll be heading from Brooklyn to Hudson Heights (thereabouts) in a couple hours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:34am TDK60:

LL- a pleasant trip *if* the A Train is zippin' along!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:37am Linda Lee:

just checked out your neighborhood. turns out that's where my parents lived when i was born! my first memories are of your neighborhood! we lived on 181st.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:38am TDK60:

181st is my A Train stop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:38am Linda Lee:

:-) have you been there long?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:39am steveo:

If you miss the A train
You'll find you missed the quickest way [under] Harlem [on the way to Brooklyn]
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:40am Linda Lee:

my memories of the blocks near the river in the snow are still very clear. 1960 or thereabouts ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:41am steveo:

If you miss the A train
You'll find there's another train directly behind this one
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:42am crateslinger:

Linda Lee - that's very sweet and melancholy. Makes me want to be little with those mittens that go through your jacket over the shoulders.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:43am steveo:

lol yeah tell us the password
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:44am Roberto:

"Directly behind" is a BS phrase, am I right? It doesn't actually mean anything. "Right behind" or "immediately behind" would be more apt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:44am crateslinger:

could it be "haywire"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:44am steveo:

it's on a track right, so definitely directly behind
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:44am Linda Lee:

ha! i seem to remember mine were buttoned to my sleeves. my dad walked me around in his arms. couldn't walk yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:45am Lixiviated Life:

Clay proves once more that he is truly "the indispensable man"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:46am crateslinger:

is that your earliest memory?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:46am Roberto:

But what does "directly" mean in this case? The suggestion is that it's not far behind, but since it is on a track, directly could mean it's an hour behind, couldn't it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:46am TDK60:

LL..about 9 years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:46am John Allen:

hey everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:46am Linda Lee:

he was an enforcer for the latin syndicate at the time.
yes, it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:47am Roberto:

My point is it's ambiguous, which is maybe why that phrase is usually used by the MTA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:47am Linda Lee:

@TDK60 ~ many changes in that time, i'll bet.
i believe the building we lived in was the first in the neighborhood with a million dollar apartment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:48am ben abs:

Welcome back JA
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:48am TDK60:

..there's also the 1 Train.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:48am steveo:

took me a moment to determine which LL
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:49am crateslinger:

LL - Sounds like a great opening sequence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:49am steveo:

@roberto i think so too
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:49am Linda Lee:

it was. :-D
  Fri. 1/11/19 9:50am prudy:

what a gentle song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:50am TDK60:

Any New Yorkers remember the 9 Train? It was a variation on the 1.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:50am Linda Lee:

@steveo ~ determine which.. ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:50am crateslinger:

I'm off. I'll be listening in the car as I drive to Hudson Highlands (not Heights after all). 91.9 here I come!
  Fri. 1/11/19 9:52am Benzoil Peroxide:

Sick in bed. Unable to change station. First time listening to JA and finding it strangely soothing. Even though I personally don't like JA since he punched me. Steve Gunn seems an affable fellow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:52am Linda Lee:

Happy New Year, crateslinger! have a nice drive!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:52am Chris from DC:

That Meg & Mary really hit the spot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:53am John Allen:

TDK, i still call it the 1/9 line, can't undo the 9 in my mind
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:53am steveo:

Lix Life is another LL so i read "Clay proves once more that he is truly 'the indispensable man'"

with a reply of "about 9 years"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:54am Roberto:

For those of us still living in the '90s, it is still the 1/9.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:54am TDK60:

if I recall, the 9 skipped certain stations to move a bit faster.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:54am Linda Lee:

aha. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:54am steveo:

yeah the 9 didn't go away until 2005, apparently
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:55am crateslinger:

Thanks Linda. Happy NY to you and everybody. I dindn't realize the 9 was gone.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:56am Linda Lee:

what's happened to poor Steve Gunn?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:56am crateslinger:

Okay - really leaving now. Just had to say I am thoroughly confused by his radio show this morning? Making me nervous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:57am melinda:

I am liking the vibe too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:58am Linda Lee:

it's a live set gone off the rails a little.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:59am Linda Lee:

we must be waiting for technical assistance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/11/19 9:59am steveo:

safe trip c.s.

Seriously though, cool set.

I remember the 1/9 train back in the 90's or so. Also, 3 Clinton street (which was kinda sketchy back in 1992 or so) near Houston/Ave B intersection now has million dollar apartments.

Btw, @Tom Dash: Great show earlier this week. Covering for Creamo Coyl is not an enviable task but yer smokin' show more than held up to his blazing standard...
