Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 12:09pm Linda Lee:

i'm shamed to be blessed with a sharp sense of pitch. that means flat hurts. i cringe!~ frankly, i think she's always been conscious of her shortcomings & resented the fact that she made it on her looks. but of course she did! without the sexy schoolgirl vibe Oldham wouldn't have even seen her! & a desire for pop stardom means she'll go on with it anyway. the conflict ruined her, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 12:09pm Linda Lee:

If someone can sing on key and naturally (without putting unnecessary strain on their vocal chords) in my book that means they can sing... whether or not they sing WELL or in a way that appeals to me is a different story

John, she was actually picked up at a party by a budding rock promoter, Andrew Oldham, who also managed the Stones. he made a pop star out of her! hit records & fame at 17! then Jagger hooked up with her.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 12:13pm Linda Lee:

that's my issue with poor Marianne. she tends to fly flat as often as not. that means she's *not* on key, to my ears. have you ever seen her tv appearance with Bowie singing 'I Got You Babe'? it's painful to hear, she's so incredibly flat.
  Thu. 1/17/19 12:14pm Johnzon:

my ears are not so sharp... nope sounds like it's not worth looking up tho lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 12:14pm Linda Lee:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 12:15pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

Linda Lee, i'm glad i don't have that sharp sense, I think i have the opposite— i really enjoy "off" and discordant sounds. You would NOT like to hear me sing, though i DO have the capability of singing in tune, i just prefer not to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 12:17pm Linda Lee:

i love discord that doesn't try to be something else. adore it.

i did love 'broken english' & heard her sing at the bottom line on her comeback. i recorded the show clandestinely on my walkman, but it sounded so bad i taped over it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 12:20pm melinda:

So many great vocalists don't sing well.
@Granny I'm the opposite, I don't think I have the capability of singing in tune and wish I could. I can hear the difference.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 12:23pm Linda Lee:

lots of great vocalists aren't trained singers & therefore don't 'sing well'. billie holiday was self-trained. she could carry a tune in key, though. and how. just stay with the key. that's all i ask!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 12:24pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

melinda: A friend of mine was working with a voice coach and discovered that the reason she sang so off key was because her sense of hearing tone was so keen it was throwing her voice off.

"Warrior King" is soooo due for a resurgence... surprisingly I don't think Ive heard it played on FMU yet.

I also think about this a lot Olivia, and I always come back to my experiences making physical tape loops and making mixes on a four-track and how much joy and calm that has brought me, so I do think there is a special element to the physical form for me. Your show has inspired me to revisit my tape splicing and mixing activities! I think you play the tapes like an instrument!

I like cassettes. they're compact and durable. cd cases seem more flimsy & disposable to me. Vynyl is best for artwork... I wanna make cassettes to sell on the street. tho I suppose cd's would make more sense. something about cassettes tho... the cases are such solid little artifacts... they'd be a much more practical self defense tool than a cd case or a record too. not that that should be high on the list of considerations. yep... cassettes have certainly well earned a spot in the top five mediums for conveying recorded music in my book

I really laugh at those that are vinyl snobs because of some notion of superior sound quality. If you really want analog, and you want quality, you need to be listening on reel-to-reel tape.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 1:54pm mrdonutsu:

What people like vinyl - to a large part - is essentially the sound modification caused by en.wikipedia.org... Tape (even cassette) is much closer to the original sound of the music as it was recorded.

Stephen O'Malley called Fohr a female Scott Walker. (Apparently she hates that comparison.)

zpulpa- Im pretty sure I saw it on the news... but I was -5 at the time so I could be mistaken... but if I ever release an experimental cassette tape of Rock N'Roll disaster stories Ill be sure to... comment.
  Thu. 1/17/19 2:05pm Johnzon:

it has to have happened somewhere at some point. if it's rained frogs it's rained cassette tapes

i have this playing on my radio and phone at the same time and it sounds really cool
Avatar Thu. 1/17/19 2:06pm coelacanth∅:

8-tracks are great! lots of possibilities. i bought an 8-track recorder just a few years ago, for recording purposes. i do just listen to tapes sometimes though. they sound lovely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:07pm Rich in Washington:

One of the first things I did when I got a 4 track was to take a tape of Iron Butterfly's In A Gadda Da Vida and play the title track flipped so that it played backwards and made a dub of it.
I played it for a guy I knew who ran a local record store and he flipped out because he loved it so much. I gave him the tape, knowing I could just make another.
I showed up a couple of months later and he was selling bootlegs of it, complete with the artwork mirror flopped, like we'd joked about earlier. He wouldn't give me a copy, claiming he'd actually had the idea years before.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/19 2:11pm zpulpa:

It would be so fun to have a Radio Ravioli listener tape exchange! anyone?
Avatar Thu. 1/17/19 2:12pm coelacanth∅:

wow Rich that's a great idea! 'sucks that fuckweasel didn't give you credit for it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:12pm olivia:

I agree zpulpa!
Avatar Thu. 1/17/19 2:14pm coelacanth∅:

one of my earliest experiments along those lines was paranoid, backward - to check out the dancing devils. somehow it didn't work. didn't see devils.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/19 2:14pm coelacanth∅:

zpulpa i'm totally down!
Avatar Thu. 1/17/19 2:15pm coelacanth∅:

(but then, i still haven't gotten around to remixing Olivia's marathon premium)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:15pm Booz:

Zpulpa, what a fine idea! RRTX is lit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:18pm Rich in Washington:

I was just kind of an old tossed off stoner joke, playing that song backwards. It wasn't really that original of an idea, but I just remember being kind of pissed about it at the time. The lesson was don't share creative ideas with people if I don't intend to do something with it myself. Live and learn.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/19 2:20pm zpulpa:

what would be the best way to organize something like this? Google Doc? :)
  Thu. 1/17/19 2:23pm Mr. Palchepo.:

Why don’t we all just get together and exchange them in front of the record store guy and not let him have one?
Avatar Thu. 1/17/19 2:25pm coelacanth∅:

i tried several things backwards...revolution 9; whole lotta love; Bowie; foghat; George Crumb; Yma Sumac...i just mean in-a-gadda-da-vita was an excellent choice (which i hadn't thought of). the drum solo alone must've sounded great!
ten years after's "boogie on" would be another, along those lines.

I listen to Mary had a little lamb backwards its very trippy
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:28pm olivia:

thanks zpulpa! if you email it to me -- olivia@wfmu.org -- I can maybe post on the playlist page or something
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:30pm The Oscar:

I'm young enough that most of my teenage playback experiments were digital, but I also fell down some FANTASTIC rabbit holes of Satanic Panic/Illuminati backmasking conspiracy websites. I probably know "Stairway to Heaven" better backwards than forwards at this point.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/19 2:32pm zpulpa:

@ olivia, sent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:32pm Ike:

Oh wow, do any of those websites still exist?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:32pm olivia:

cool thanks! won't be able to do that til after the show but I will!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:36pm The Oscar:

@Ike Man, that's a good question. Most of that action is on Youtube now, but I'm sure there are some .WAV treasure troves still out there, probably with twinkly star backgrounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:37pm Rich in Washington:

There was some Australian gentlemen who was making hay on the Satanic Panic/Backwards Masking hysteria but also claiming that guilty people inadvertently made confessions that could be heard when playing their statements backwards. He was all over talk radio during the Bill Clinton/Lewinskly scandal and also the OJ Simpson case.
A total charlatan and conman. But hilarious and engaging radio.
  Thu. 1/17/19 2:37pm Mr. Palchepo.:

Oscar, you’d have loved Oklahoma in the 80s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:41pm The Oscar:

@Rich I definitely stumbled across some of that too (not sure if it was the same guy you're talking about, but it could very well have been). Eventually I realized that "Yes" played backwards sounds a lot like "Satan," so there's pretty much always going to be a neverending supply of "Satanic" messages.
  Thu. 1/17/19 2:41pm John from Florham Park:

@the Oscar will look it up on you tube, I am sure I can find more interesting stuff on there
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:41pm Booz:

Heading out. Loved, loved, loved today's show & comments board. I'm in favor of all of you (except maybe for the Faithfull digs, I love MF).
  Thu. 1/17/19 2:42pm Matt:

Ha. I think I remember trying to get this Seafeel when it came out by mail order and through many a usps mishap it just never happened. Odd reunion 25 years later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:44pm The Oscar:

If anyone hasn't seen it, check out Mdou Moctor's remake of Purple Rain (as in, the movie). There's no Tuareg word for "purple," so the title translates to "Rain the Color of Blue with a Little Red In It."

@Rich in WA@2:37, sounds good. That would be right up Station Manager Ken's alley, too.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/19 2:51pm coelacanth∅:

so, for this tape exchange, are we talking about "weird" cassettes, like remix soundscape kinda things?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:51pm olivia:

i feel like anything's fair game rn coel, no rules as far as I know!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:54pm RomanDogBird:

surely there are recipes/cooking instructions on cassette out there?
Avatar Thu. 1/17/19 2:56pm βrian:

I have a cassette recording of 4′33″ that I could contribute.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/19 2:57pm βrian:

4′33″, by the way, is the most heavily sampled track in history.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/19 2:58pm Rich in Washington:

That aforementioned guy was making his rounds on talk radio and I can't remember who - but some radio host wouldn't let him tell people in advance what was supposedly being said backwards, to let them decide for himself, and his whole act kind of collapsed. It was like Uri Geller v James Randi. Wish I could remember who...
