I've spent a bit of time listening to KFAT airchecks and back before they went behind a paywall, I listened to it's descendent, KPIG a *ton*.

Afternoon Fools!
Rex, I had the honour of being fill-in vocalist on your Hoof 'n' Mouth song last night. I was terrible. You are going to be AMAZING.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Uncle Michael:

John, I saw Bill Frisell last night and he employs a full time sound engineer who used to work at (one of the) Keystone(s).
Avatar 1:24pm Marcel M:

I suppose its rather praiseworthy that he managed to emerge from the battle with his hair unscathed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm coelacanth:

maybe it was a thumn-wrestle.

bill's a nice guy
i know from the village vanguard
there were a # of sound guys
at the 3 bay area stones

@Coelacanth: True, though I've witnessed some hair tousling thumb wars.

Is it too early to start drinking? I just made myself and the wife Hot Toddies. The season for them is almost nigh.

Used to print KFAT T- Shirts at Hippo Creations in SF way back in the 70's...that was so long ago that KSAN would have Friday street drug purity reports and recommendations...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm coelacanth:

it's true. thumb wrestling can get outa-hand!
...regarding hot toddies, i'll catch up later on...it doesn't have to be sub-arctic to enjoy a hot beverage,does it? i hope not- i've (strangely) never had a hot toddy.

@marcel- u kiddin? I'm on my second beer- some Coney Island mermaid Pilsner. Cheers!
Hey jk77!

Bill's sound guy is a woman. Claudia Engelhart...she's been mixing in NYC since 1983. The sound was spectacular in the 480 seater.
  1:41pm mike east:

Don't know if I've had a hot toddophonic toddie either...what's in it?
  1:43pm johnk77:

u rock
do not know her:<
i left the bay area in 1982
KFAT was not always an easy signal

Can you please ask your guest about the three fired at kfat over the missing 25% of the stations albums ?

My God, I love you Rex! . . .There! I said it!
Avatar 1:48pm Marcel M:

@Mike East & Coelacanth: Cheers!

Oh you must try one! Very good! Its simply Whiskey (Rye or Bourbon), fresh squeezed lemon juice, and honey. Then fill up glass/mug with boiling water. Make sure you pour it in right as its boiling, it must be very hot! Some people put tea in it, but I don't.

Avatar 1:50pm Marcel M:

I actually absentmindedly put simple syrup in these because I was used to making Whiskey Sours, and I must say its quite good. But it doesn't need simple syrup, the honey takes care of that. I do 2 oz whisky, .75 lemon juice and a heaping teaspoon of honey.
  1:50pm mike east:

Ah dig it...i made a similar cold cocktail a few weeks back with soda water instead of hot. Also delicious
Avatar 1:51pm Marcel M:

Theres just something about this show that makes me want to start drinking (in a good, celebratory way), but I'm usually driving while I listen, so I'm taking advantage!
Avatar 1:51pm Marcel M:

Also sounds good Mike, I'll have to try that when it gets warmer.
Avatar 1:53pm Marcel M:

Its one of those drinks that bartenders usually screw up (all of them?) despite its utter simplicity.

I've never been so excited for Marathon. I'm like a kid at Christmas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm coelacanth:

Marcel,i don't know how i've never had one! i'm a big fan of every ingredient.
my plan is to have one this evening!
Avatar 2:04pm Marcel M:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm coelacanth:

its simplicity means that only fresh lemon juice should be used...that may be why they aren't good in bars. they usually use pasteurised lemon juice.
Avatar 2:07pm Marcel M:

Yes exactly.. I think that is why most drinks suck at bars ?
Avatar 2:08pm Marcel M:

Or, rather why drinks suck at most bars, I should say.

GARLIC capital of the world!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm coelacanth:

that and,if you have soda-pop drinks (like jameson/ginger ale,one of my favorites) they use corn-syrup-sweetened concentrate mixed with seltzer- usually in a not entirely clean tube system.
"my" bar lets me bring my own soda or juice in to mix with.(depending on the bartender)
Avatar 2:13pm Marcel M:

Wow what a great story!
Avatar 2:14pm Marcel M:

Ah yes... I was in Spain recently. There they serve a fresh unopened bottle of tonic if you order a gin and tonic.. it is magical.
Avatar 2:21pm Marcel M:

Here's one for $19.95: www.ebay.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm coelacanth:

that sounds good.
a trick i learned too is to get mixers not commonly ordered. (at my bar that's pineapple juice) that way it's from a bottle or can. (at least a little better)
or i ask if they've run out of any sodas or orange juice, in which case they've brought in bottles.(or cartons)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm coelacanth:

This interview's interesting!
Thanx Rex!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm coelacanth:

$22. !...i wonder if some of my old wfmu stickers are worth that much.

I usually zone out for interviews, but this one is tremendous. We were lucky to have KFAT here. Many enjoyable hours pi$$ed away listening to the weirdness. Thanks guys!
