Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

The Orb’s ABtW — one of my fave albums of all time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06am Scott67:

G'day Darren & All! 😎🤙🌏

Hello Darren and listeners
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:10am Hugo (NL):

Hi everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10am Ike:

Weirdly the original U.S. version of this album (1 CD) contains unrecognizably different remixes of “Perpetual Dawn” and “Star 6 & 7 8 9”. And the former is way cooler (IMHO) than the UK Perpetual Dawn. Very strange. Also some of the Orb’s later work is pretty disappointing but they put out a fun single last year with a hilarious video where a dog gets high and dances on the moon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24am Ike:

Disclaimer: Do not send your dog to the moon. Neither WFMU nor its commenters condone canine cosmological disco dancing. The moon is not safe for dogs. Or disco dancing. Or filming music videos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34am Darren:

Ike, Hugo, Fred, Scott, greetings, hope everyone has either a dog or some weed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36am Scott67:

I have both! 😎🐾

Cat and an edible for me tonight with our ole pal Darren

I'm 54! 😎
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05am fred:

Ryuichi Sakamoto dealing with cancer again definitely sucks ass. I think it's a term of art, not a profanity
  4:23am ami ad:

Hello DJ. Hello all.
  4:43am Zetti:

Still have the Ryuichi Sakamoto documentary CODA (2017) on my film list... must move it up to the top.

I think there is another doc about him in the works.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48am fred:

@Zetti: This one is pretty cool: www.youtube.com...
Old though, dates back to Illustrated Musical Encyclopedia
  4:49am Zetti:

Excellent! Thanks fred!
  4:54am Zetti:

@fred Actually, the older the better. Pre-Yellow would be great. Years ago, I had some very early video/interviews from a reddit user in Japan.
  4:56am Zetti:

Sorry forgot to say hello. Hi Darren, crew and friends.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58am fred:

@Zetti: I get a kick out of the scene where he shows off an early sampler, complete with floppy disc storage
  5:01am Zetti:

I can't wait to watch it. Thanks again fred

And Thanks Darren for the Sakamoto.
  5:02am Nathalie:

That was a great set!
  5:25am Zetti:

Anyone know of a North NJ music venue, back in the 1980s it was smallish, modern, round, with a revolving stage. I'm not sure if was a college or something else. The Grover W. just reminded me of it. My brain is mush.
  5:42am gigi_RR:

that Linda Smith song was awesome
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59am Scott67:

Thanks for the great show Darren! 😎🤙
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59am Darren:

thanks y'all!!
Avatar 5:59am HyperDose:

Thanks for the silly time mister Darren! :D
  6:00am Zetti:

Best Darren and crew.
