  12:40am Sally:

ha yeah, I was responding to the comments
  12:40am Scobot:

Oh! This makes sense. “They are best known for their track "Cavern," which was covered—without proper permission or attribution—by the Sugar Hill Records house band as the backing track for Melle Mel's old school rap classic "White Lines (Don't Do It)."
  12:41am Scobot:

I prefer this version.
Avatar 12:41am Cult of Oobi:

Loved hearing Cavern!
  12:41am rw:

Thank you Sally! I guess I'm not as big a record geek as I thought I was!

White Lines...don't do it!

I could see this setting up some pretty grisly deaths in an Argento movie
  1:17am rw:

Beer works pretty much like Advil, right?
  1:23am Sally:

yeah Argento vibe... weed is better for a headache
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24am TomDash:

we'll call this the Argento set...or the weed set really...
  1:24am Scobot:

rw, yes. Like bourbon and Chianti works like Xanax.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:27am ultradamno:

Advil is ibuprofen which either gives you more erections or fewer depending on who you ask.
  1:28am fruit_will_bond_us_again:

some soft machine vibes up in here - Soft Machine 5
  1:29am rw:

Weed and work are a bad mix for me. I've got some sore muscles from a long hike yesterday. Let's see what this beer does... the Argento set's already working wonders. And I'll save you all the embarrassment of reporting on any erections.
  1:32am rw:

ultradamno.
Avatar 1:33am Hubig Pie:

Advil for muscle pain
Tylenol for fever
Aspirin for hangover
Hospital morphine if your appendix bursts
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:34am ultradamno:

A little vocal theremin working in here, this is almost fit for Gaylord's exotica show.
  1:36am Sally:

LOL Advil is good for menstrual cramps too (for those that can benefit from that info)

  2:03am rw:

Howdy S-67!!!
  2:06am rw:

I could hear the Dead a-comin' (mostly from Mr. Dash's warning)

Some day the whole thing will make sense to me. Maybe it'll happen in the next several minutes.
  2:10am nidrian:

One of these days I’m going to take a deep dive into thr Grateful Dead. I might even become a dead head.
  2:12am Sally:

@rw I learned to appreciate the Dead after listening to Jeff Conklin's old Avant Ghetto show on FMU. Didn't like them much before then. I think it helps to have someone explain it haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12am TomDash:

nidrian - I go in phases, usually summertime and always live jams - generally late 60s to mid 70s. made an experiment of playing various live moments on my show since late spring...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14am coelacanth∅:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16am Aitch:

Or not nidrian.
It's OK not to be a Dead head.
Don't hate it myself, but would never choose to play it.
I understood when I saw the Series about them recently .
The quintessential american band apparently.
As a not american that void would be filled with something else.
Avatar 2:18am vj pussycat:

i got out of the shower and heard ripley's sweet guitar from downstairs and was so pleased with myself for recognizing it since only learning he was rose city band last week. sweet scarlet fire too, the famous cornell tape
  2:18am rw:

Sally, I've never been anti-GD per se. Just never understood the fervor. Getting there though. Slowly. Jeff C's show helped. And I'm pretty jealous about that Uriah Heep show!
  2:20am nidrian:

I mean, this sounds nice. But I’m going to explore them more thoroughly one day. I did that with Steely Dan and suddenly really appreciate them. It took listening is all.
  2:23am rw:

And Tom, the summertime/live thing makes total sense. Thanks for experimenting on the radio. That's what radio is for.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24am TomDash:

sure thing rw! I am pretty much the only person in my musical circle who likes this band. It is all about the transcedence of the live experience...
Avatar 2:24am laurapanic:

Is this still Grateful Dead....oh lordy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24am Aitch:

I always feel the need to play Ween after exposure to too much GD, to flush out the jam.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24am TomDash:

don't panic, laura...almost fading away...
  2:25am rw:

Ween yourself off of the jam?
  2:26am Sally:

yeah it helps to really listen to different versions of jams, like with Dark Star
  2:27am nidrian:

@laurapanic, lol! I think that might be part of the appeal. Suddenly realizing the jam is stiiillll goooing!
  2:27am Sally:

and compare to studio versions too
  2:28am nidrian:

Woah, it ended?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28am TomDash:

Sally - I started with Dark Star this spring and have found MANY more excellent versions but I don't really wanna repeat same songs (even though they're so different from show to show!) - maybe I'll grab another Dakr Star before summer's end...
  2:30am Sally:

Tom, it would be cool if you played different versions

All at the same time.
