this hippie ass cover of "i know you rider" should surely appease you. what do you mean, "no"?

Yes. Who are the Jugs?

This reminds me to check out the FotD cover by I See Hawks in LA (what a crazy name) that the official Dead Facebook page posted yesterday.

I don't understand why we aren't all sitting around in a huge back yard on Sunday afternoon of Memorial Day in 75 degree weather.

It must feel adventurous to do a late night show. What with the mist and the darkness and all.
Avatar 4:00am Knile:

One of my top-5 favorite non-musical aspects of the Frow Show is seeing Jesse's sunrise tweets.

You know, I have been to de Blaauwe Hand countless times and never stopped in at de Waaghals... or any other classic record shop in town. (Hi, neighbour.)

Queued up here for post-TFS-listening: Chris Haskett's new album Gravity Left/Right: chrishaskett.bandcamp.com (ans: he's local!)
Avatar 4:39am Knile:

Laidback acoustic guitar stuff, just instrumental, slightly mathematical at times, might be perfect for those of you up late...
Avatar 4:39am Yair Yona:

Crossing the river of Jordan isn't that hard, there's a bridge. Though, it's a killer track
Avatar 4:42am fred von helsing:

lava children are on myspace but they might be defunked

OK how about some reggae covers by a Brit band named Carry On Babylon Carillon

Dom Tower? More like Drone Tower!...........................

Carillon sounds makes me want to eat something

This is Awesome. That is all.
  5:18am ausmanx:

evening all, from the antipodes. i've always meant to consult about finding this show phonetically challenging... given the pronunciation of "Show" and "Jarnow", why isn't "Frow" pronounced "froh"... ?
Avatar 5:26am fred von helsing:

this reminds me of listening to shortwave :-D
Avatar 5:29am fred von helsing:

waiting for Radio Tirana to chime in
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30am jj.:

there's a long answer & a short answer. the short answer is that it's an inside joke gone amiss. the medium version is that the spelling originates from a threatening note slipped under the door of my high school radio station with the word "fro" spelled "frow," in reference to my then-becoming-long-hair. it remained a joke for a few more weeks until my friend wrote/recorded the theme on his four track. ever since then, i couldn't not use it. only after about 10 years of using it thru a college station, a pirate station, a podcast, & WFMU did i realize that a.) anybody was listening & b.) it was really, really confusing.
Avatar 5:35am Knile:

That answers that question I've also wondered about for... years. When did you switch from just podcast to WFMU, btw? I have strong memories of 2007 being pre-WFMU (don't ask) but other than that my mind is a hairy mess of drones and psychedelia and reverb.
Avatar 5:35am fred von helsing:

A pirate station? Do tell. Radio New York International ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39am jj.:

ha, the podcast was 2005-2008, i think, and i started here that august. the pirate station (2000ish?) was hardly illustrious. my friend built it in his living room & broadcast out of the attic for 8 months or so until the FCC showed up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39am ausmanx:

thanks, an answer of Garcia-like proportions! you should have cut it off half way and kept us hanging on for the final instalment next week!
Avatar 5:42am fred von helsing:

Ya got busted by the Feds? Nice! :) I'd always read that people (in NYC) were doing crazy shit like turning antenna amps around so they could broadcast VCR movies to the neighborhood. But real pirate radio and a real bust, that's street cred :) Do you know what kind of tech they used? Was it a Python-approved Cat Detector Van?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55am jj.:

can't remember the details. it was in the rural midwest, though. i'll ask my friend when i see him in a few months.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56am jj.:

by the way, this is the 200th episode of the frow show on WFMU. i meant to do some kind of anniversary thingee, but i completely forgot. this reminiscing will have to do.
