Morning, all!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:05am Julie:

Good morning Caryn!
  3:06am Darkseid Dan:

  3:12am Jay/ London:

good morning Juile and Caryn and all
  3:13am bronxelf:

Hey everyone :)
  3:13am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

1000 mph outta the gate tonight! :-)
  3:14am Jay/ London:

ohhhhhh thats a good song to wake up to
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:14am Julie:

Morning Jay, Dan, Adam & Bronxxx
  3:14am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

Julie, have you heard Coil's cover of this cover? It's massive!
  3:15am Glovanie:

Nice Picture, and great song :]
  3:16am Jay/ London:

was yhat in the film stardust ?
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:16am Julie:

That's Sophia in the photo!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:17am Julie:

And our engineer extraordinaire Ernie in the middle on the bottom
  3:17am ausmanx:

this is a fine choice, good evening Julie... some people dismissed as lightweight pop stars were actually more interesting... this David E track is pretty radical
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:17am Julie:

Hi Aus, Glovanie. Yes this is the only David Essex song I know.
  3:19am Caryn:

I'd forgotten about the name of Soft Cell's album. Heh! Of course, their follow-up, "Non-Stop Ecstatic Dancing" continued in the same vein. I hope Mary Whitehouse was displeased. (Of course, I can't remember her ever being pleased, so...)
  3:19am Jay/ London:

david essex is now in a show over here called eastenders .. i never watch it think its a big step down for him
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:20am Julie:

He was in some movie...in the 70s..stardust or something like that
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:20am Julie:

He was hot too, gonna take that album cover home with me :D
  3:20am Darkseid Dan:

He was Kenny Everett all the time.
  3:20am Jay/ London:

oh caryn she was only happy when we were not
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:21am Julie:

Love Kenny!
  3:25am Caryn:

@yep, Stardust. You're lucky to just know Rock On. I think Essex's interesting work (like being in Jeff Wayne's "War of the Worlds" etc.) is often overpowered in my mind by the musicals, sitcoms, soaps and frigging "A Winter's Tale".
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:26am Julie:

I warn you, I've got my sequinned disco slippers on
  3:26am Marmalade Kitty:

Ringo was in that movie.. Morning :D
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:27am Julie:

Kitty knew were talking about English things! Manc in the house
  3:28am ausmanx:

hey, don't forget Silver Dream Racer! the title alone tells you a lot about that one, a David Essex classic
  3:29am Marmalade Kitty:

I love winter tale.. I used to hate it when I was a child xmas #1'83 I think
  3:31am ausmanx:

and That'll Be The Day with Keith Moon and Ringo Starr! i thought Kitty was Geordie, not Manc... spreading misinformation, must be MI5...
  3:31am Jay/ London:

morning Marmalade Kitty think Ringo was in the first oneit was called " that will be the day " anyway just chillin before i have to go in to hospital for my op
  3:31am Caryn:

I think "Rock On" was the only Essex album to do pretty well in the US, so I think that explains how Julie only knows that.
  3:32am Marmalade Kitty:

Ahem..Geordie in Mancs !!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:32am Julie:

Please sing along to the next one :D
  3:35am Caryn:

Oh, the days of "That'll Be The Day"... Good music, Keith Moon, and Billy Fury wearing gold lamé... What more do you need?
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:39am Julie:

Got a call on the "request line." I think someone thought they were listening to WPLJ in the 70s
  3:39am Caryn:

Yeah, Ringo was only in "That'll Be The Day". Adam Faith took over the role in "Stardust".
  3:40am Marmalade Kitty:

Annoyed lastnight! Arsenal last minute of added time! Christsakes!
  3:40am Caryn:

@Julie: did they also request something very 70s?
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:41am Julie:

@Caryn I told them I don't take requests
  3:42am Marmalade Kitty:

what times your op, jay? have a good one!
  3:43am ausmanx:

thanks for that, Kitty... I missed the last 5 minutes of the replay cos I had to come in here to work! I'm liking Arsenal at the moment though; Arsene would like Julie's show with the French chanteuses
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:43am Julie:

Oh good luck Jay!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:43am Julie:

Oh..if only Stevie had sung in French
  3:45am Caryn:

BTW, I sung along, Julie. But then again, I've been singing along to a lot of the songs this morning. Including this one.
  3:45am Marmalade Kitty:

only 1point behind Spurs now!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:46am Julie:

I sang too! I even put the mic up for a bit, but I was wayyy back.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:46am Julie:

San Antonio Spurs?
  3:49am Caryn:

@Julie: Tottenham
  3:49am Marmalade Kitty:

Julie, sorry for the football talk! Tottenham HotSpurs :) north london clubs..booooo!
love Eskimo blue day!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:50am Julie:

There isn't a whole lot of bad JA, until Starship comes along
  3:50am fred von helsing:

Aw crap, DST !!
  3:56am Jim:

Loving all of these tracks!
  3:58am Marmalade Kitty:

I was watching Woodstock '69 at the weekend. Grace slick singing -White Rabbit, Ritchie Havens -Freedom, Sly & the Family Stone - Higher rooooocking it! "Higher" stole the show for me :)
  3:58am Caryn:

So, MK, are you a Newcastle supporter, or just an Arsenal hater? (I think the "1 point behind Spurs" thing is confusing me even further, because Arsenal are 1 point behind Spurs.)
  3:58am Jay/ London:

@ Marmalade Kitty i have to go to the Hospital at midday thats in only 4 hours time and can not eat till tonight !!!
  3:59am Marmalade Kitty:

you'll be just fine, Jay.. I know it!
  4:03am Jay/ London:

i hope so marmalade kitty will be in touch via email when i get back home hey Juile love the show love wfmu !!!:)
  4:06am Marmalade Kitty:

I turned to Woostock after Clays awesome rendition at the H&M
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:08am Julie:

Haha Jay thanks! I have never watched Woodstock all the way through.
  4:08am ausmanx:

she really does sound like our Livvie
  4:08am fred von helsing:

very nice
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:10am Julie:

@Aus Right?!
  4:10am Caryn:

I tend to watch Woodstock at least once a year. There was a time when I would watch it constantly.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:11am Julie:

wow that picture is freakishly big, I need to fix that
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:12am Julie:

BTW that is Ernie on the bottom in the middle, we needed one more person
  4:12am Marmalade Kitty:

I seem to remember getting totally stoned watching the feature length Woodstock film as a teenager..
  4:14am Jay/ London:

think most of us did that Marmalade Kitty :)
  4:18am Marmalade Kitty:

I love Weeping Willow! nice keys
  4:21am Pie:

Really liking this so far :)
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:24am Julie:

It is pretty poppy as far as my guests go, but I love it!
  4:25am Jay/ London:

i like this .. another one for my short list :)
  4:29am Jay/ London:

here's a link for her ..http://stereogum.com/962752/sophia-knapp-into-paper-video-stereogum-premiere/mp3s/
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:30am Julie:

Yes she has a couple of vids out.
  4:32am Marmalade Kitty:

this is cool :)
  4:32am Jay/ London:

is this live now or recorded live ?
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:33am Julie:

Recorded live, I've yet to ask a band to come in at 4am, not to mention an engineer!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:35am Julie:

I was soo lucky to get her. Her album came out DURING the marathon, so we couldn't plug her NY gig, but she's playing in April with Nite jewel!
  4:36am Jay/ London:

that's what i thought .. but give a big hand to the engineer great live recording :)
  4:36am Marmalade Kitty:

my 2012 sunflowers have sprouted.. woohoo! :D
  4:36am fred von helsing:

more than a passing resemblance to the voice of our beloved ONJ :-D
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:37am Julie:

@MK well then for sure spring is here!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:37am Julie:

This song is very Fleetwood Mac to me
  4:38am Jay/ London:

bit early Marmalade Kitty i have not even put mine in yet
  4:40am Marmalade Kitty:

Its blooody chilly this am! they're indoors til further notice..
  4:52am Marmalade Kitty:

Nice music & interview, thanks for this, Julie!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:52am Julie:

my pleasure! They were a blast!
  4:54am Ken From Hyde Park:

Confounded insomnia! I enjoy the music, but I must rest my brain for a while. Good night, all.
  4:54am Caryn:

Lovely live set, Julie!
  4:55am ausmanx:

the boys don't look too happy in them photos... is she a dragon?
  4:56am Marmalade Kitty:

the band don't have a name yet?
  4:56am Matt from Springfield:

Wanted to catch this--stupid DST! Nice interview though, and "Evermore" was amazing! Will catch the rest of the set later.

Thanks Julie, and good morning!
  5:04am Matt from Springfield:

YES! "Money" used to get censored, then was a "cultural exemption" for very many years. FCC's post-Janet crackdown radio then censored it again. When I first got satellite radio I was thrilled to hear bullshit again, and now WFMU returns it!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:05am Julie:

I guess there must've been a radio safe version?
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:05am Julie:

Happy to provide the bullshit...get your bullshit here
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:08am Julie:

But any song that has it repeatedly, I'm wary of at any hour.
  5:08am Matt from Springfield:

There's your FMU homepage slogan, right there!

Yeah, there was a version with the word deleted. One time you played the Nails "88 Lines About 44 Women" that was either a radio version or strenuously censored. I first heard that as an early teen, and I was unaware how dirty that song veered!
  5:09am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, new Olivia?
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:10am Julie:

An AUS only release, she does Hey Mickey on it! It's all dance music
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:11am Julie:

@Matt yeah I think the uncensored was on the flip side. I will have to see just how bad it is.
  5:11am Marmalade Kitty:

luuuuuuv this!
  5:11am Caryn:

Ooh, please play her Hey Mickey some week!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:12am Julie:

@Caryn haha I will!
  5:12am ausmanx:

breathtakingly awful film, incidentally... stick to the soundtrack
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:12am Julie:

She does Daydream Believer too. I nearly played that one.
  5:13am Matt from Springfield:

@Kitty: I see the Mighty Pigeon's performance led you to the Woodstock movie! That is an amazing film, I show really watch it again. Too many fav items to mention! (The Rain Chant segue into Santana's "Soul Sacrifice" is probably the most awesome!)
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:13am Julie:

ahh I forget how wonderful SE are :D
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:14am Julie:

I would like to see Sweetwater did they make the cut?
  5:14am Caryn:

I suspect you'll just have to go through the whole album as the spring continues, Julie.
  5:15am Marmalade Kitty:

chemical brothers Like a Motorway remix is even better, in a way
  5:16am Matt from Springfield:

Thelma Schoonmaker has been Martin Scorsese's film editor virtually his entire career, and one of her early feature films was the Woodstock movie. The various cross-cuttings (1,2,3 panels side-by-side and back again) are evidently her contribution.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:16am Julie:

@Caryn alas there are some tracks not her
  5:19am Caryn:

Well, just the Olivia tracks then :)
  5:19am Matt from Springfield:

Sadly Sweetwater were omitted from the film, as was Tim Hardin!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:20am Julie:

There is probably footage around somewhere. I need to dig out my Sweetwater CD
  5:20am Caryn:

@Matt: yeah, she got an Oscar nomination for Woodstock. Scorcese also worked on the film with her.
  5:21am Caryn:

I wonder if Sweetwater are on the "Woodstock Diaries"?
  5:25am Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: That's right, Marty did work on Woodstock as well.

Ahhh, lovely Hex!
  5:26am Matt from Springfield:

  5:30am Matt from Springfield:

Sad story:
"Three days after Sweetwater performed on The Red Skelton Show (December 1969), singer Nancy "Nansi" Nevins was severely injured in a car accident, which stopped the progress of the band. Due to the accident, Nancy experienced brain damage for a number of years following the collision, and permanent damage to one of her vocal cords."
  5:30am Caryn:

Hey, Sweetwater! With a song Richie Havens does in "Woodstock"! I'm starting to suspect the Sweetwater footage from Woodstock has been ruined or something, because hours of extra performance footage has been released over the years, but never anything from them.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:31am Julie:

That's why I heard of them, I saw the VH1 movie
  5:31am Marmalade Kitty:

Ahhh, bongo time! :)
  5:32am Matt from Springfield:

@Kitty: Psychedelic jazz flute! :)
  5:38am Deepak:

This song by Holter is just lovely.
  5:38am Matt from Springfield:

Nice Julia Holter, kind of 80s and/or 60s vibe to this, it has that certain je ne sais quoi...
  5:39am Marmalade Kitty:

I can see the bong trees! :D
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:46am Julie:

next one is for Matt (I think)
  5:47am Matt from Springfield:

Hmmm, ears tuned in anticipation...
  5:49am Matt from Springfield:

YES INDEED-Y! Thanks Julie!
First song I heard of by Strawberry Switchblade, from my old Living In Oblivion comps.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:50am Julie:

Yeah this was the hit.. They got bumped from the first set, had to put them in here somewhere
  5:50am Matt from Springfield:

There's a whole universe of Rose McDowall songs and groups, which you've explored many times before on this show.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:52am Julie:

She is a wonder, is she doing anything now?
  5:54am Matt from Springfield:

2005 "Alone" CD EP on Durtro - with John Contreras and Nurse With Wound is the most recent item mentioned.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:54am Julie:

Sophia told me Lights were on Trouble's show I think? You should check the archive, I haven't yet
  5:58am Matt from Springfield:

Wonderful show Julie!
Have a great Tuesday everyone!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:58am Julie:

Thanks everyone! <3 you guys!
  5:59am Matt from Springfield:

Cosmic luck and blessings send out to Jay in London on behalf of all WFMUers!
  6:00am Marmalade Kitty:

See y'all soon!
  9:31am Van in DC:

Catching up finally.

Ha, those are great pics you took there Julie :)
  10:08am Van in DC:

Wait, what? Julie, were you singing Let the Sunshine In on Dark Night of the Soul...? ;)
  3:49pm Van in DC:

A fine journey this show took us on. Thank you Julie, and thanks to Sophia Knapp & her band for the incredible live set!
