Richard Lyons with the 1968 Estus Pirkle LP "If Footmen Tire You What Will Horses Do?," which he purchased at the Pleasant Hill Salvation Army in 1982. Samples from this became the 1987 Negativland track "Christianity Is Stupid," with a video version by Negativland made in 2004. (from The Stranger's obituary of Lyons, the 3rd Negativland member to pass away recently (Apr. 19, 2016). RIP Pastor Dick.)

That intro was the best!

RIP Richard Duaine Lyons of Negativland, 4/19/2016
  7:08pm Listener Robert:

Jesse Walker recently linked from his Hit & Run blog entry to a digitized version of "Footmen", but I was too impatient to listen to the whole side to find out what I've wanted to know for years: what "the loudspeakers hook up instead" meant in context. And now I can't dig up the link!

hi dan!

wow. too much death.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Marcel M:

Evening Dan and friends.
  7:11pm Tony:

I always thought it was "the loudspeakers spoke up and said"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Kat in Chicago:

Robert, I found this: fundamentalbaptistsermons.net...
Avatar 7:14pm Kurt Gottschalk:

are you _sure_ this isn't an accept cover?
Avatar 7:14pm Dan Bodah:

I thought it was "the last speaker spoke up and said"
  7:14pm Listener Robert:

Gah! Thanks, Tony, now it makes perfect sense. Not on its own, but with Jesse Walker's explanation that it was about indoctrination of Korean War prisoners. The loudspeakers spoke up & said, "Christianity is stupid, communism is good," etc. That must be what it was.
Avatar 7:15pm Dan Bodah:

@Kurt, not entirely.
Avatar 7:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Stream cutting out & rebuffering. A real drag w/ drone stuff!
...Great piece...
Avatar 7:18pm Cliff:

Also having problems with the stream
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Dave in Vermont:

Yes, I thought the stream thing was my wifi...very nice piece
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm chris:

for me too, RevRab... and yeah, also totally feelin' this Yat-Kha
  7:19pm bodahcar:

Also here, stream cutting in and out
  7:19pm Listener Robert:

Thanks for finding the link, Kat. And thanks for confirming Tony, Dan. John Pachak & I always misheard it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Kat in Chicago:

I closed and reopened the pop-up and it is streaming OK for the moment
  7:20pm ?:

Same here,started at end of Mayuko's show.
Avatar 7:20pm ottovonbqe:

me too :( :(
Avatar 7:21pm fearfeasog:

trying 32k mp3 via itunes. working ok for now
Avatar 7:22pm Dan Bodah:

I just called Tech Guru Jeff -- he will look into the streaming issues. Thanks for letting me know!
Avatar 7:23pm ottovonbqe:

good call fearfeasog
Avatar 7:23pm ottovonbqe:

oops spoke too soon.
  7:23pm Listener Robert:

I wasn't sure the blank spots weren't part of it rather than a problem.
Avatar 7:23pm fearfeasog:

eh, still having issues, but now i'll blame them on itunes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Kat in Chicago:

Yeah the popup crapped out again. I'm trying mp3 via VLC.
Avatar 7:24pm Cliff:

Stream's gone kerplonk, oh well...I'll catch the show on the archives. Thanks Dan for the bit I got to hear :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Kat in Chicago:

"Those aren't buffering problems, that's our programming"
Avatar 7:26pm Jeff:

I confirm that there's something distinctly flaky going on with the streams. Looking into it.
  7:26pm Listener Robert:

It's affecting Flash, .asx, & .pls. I haven't tried RAM in a while, maybe need to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Been listening for a couple hours on the mp3 stream with VLC and it's been rock solid. In past weeks, I've noticed that Mayuko's show skips when the next show commences (used the pop-up for that stream).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Kat in Chicago:

Made note of Hannah Silva for further investigation
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm chris:

i remember that one, too, Kat. one of my favs...

thanks, Jeff! show those robot overlords who controls the electricity!
Avatar 7:31pm Jeff:

In the meantime, try this backup URL:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Dave in Vermont:

ok that stream Jeff posted seems to be consistent
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Marcel M:

Stream seems pretty good now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Kat in Chicago:

the mp3 stream has settled down for me too
Avatar 7:37pm Dan Bodah:

Jeff you rule
Avatar 7:37pm Dan Bodah:

Just in time for everyone to enjoy the Dorzé hocketing
  7:40pm Listener Robert:

Thanks for the link, Jeff. I couldn't say it solves the problem, because all the rest got fixed in the meantime, but I should bookmark it.
Avatar 7:41pm Jeff:

The main streams seem to be good now. I restarted the main encoder machine, but it may just be a coincidence that things got better after that - I think we were mostly dealing with a transient network problem between us and the main public stream server.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Stepchild:

If I'd told you it affected TuneIn's stream as well would that have provided any help? Well, it's better here too, now. Also, much thanks for that Stranger Lyons obit!! And the tunes, BTW, are also so nice tonight...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Ike:

91.1 FM has been solid for the whole show so far.
  7:51pm Listener Robert:

Ike, if only the diffraction over the hill were strong enough to get from E. Orange in this basement! That was one of my regrets about moving here 30 yrs. ago; if I go outside, like in a parked car, I can get it.
Avatar 7:52pm Cliff:

Glad to see the stream's fixed :D
Avatar 7:53pm fearfeasog:

Steph keeps imagining this is you singing, Dan. :)
  7:53pm Listener Robert:

It'll be 30 yrs. in June, almost half my life...depressing. At the time I thought it'd be pretty temporary. Was thinking about moving into NJ or NE Penna. recently too. It'd be WFMU's or WMFU's reception area, but don't get the idea that was the main impetus!
  7:57pm JakeGould:

Hollow from the logged in world.
Avatar 7:58pm Jeff:

@Stepchild: TuneIn relays the same streams we provide for direct listeners, so it's all basically the same.

@Listener Robert: those azx, plx and ram playlist files all refer to the same two underlying MP3 streams these days - we simplified. There's the 128k stereo MP3 stream which sounds pretty decent, and the 32k mono MP3 stream which sounds pretty dire, but can be useful for listeners who are severely bandwidth-constrained.

Oh, and the AAC and Ogg Vorbis streams are still distinct, to please codec connoisseurs. Note that I've bumped the AAC codec's bitrate up a little from what's advertised, and I think AAC deals with vinyl tics and pops with less drama and trauma than MP3.

Links to those can be found here:
