Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30am -Ken:

Hi everybody. I'm sorry to say that I'm in even worse shape than last week and I cant do a new show today. I've been up all night needing to puke and trying not to. I was succesful but I'm a wreck. Im here at FMU in my office so I dont infect anybody and I'm gonna air an old episode - the "In Demons In" episode from 6/5/13.
  8:50am F♋F♋ (:

Hi, Ken!

Sorry to hear you aren't ok! So thanks for being here! I hope the demons inside you go away soon.

Now, in the spirit of today's re-run show I'll repeat my commentaries of the 'In Demons In' show. So here I go:

Hola Keno, peopleos and peopleas! Good Wednesday to everybody!
  8:52am Listener Robert:

Aw, feel better, Ken. My housemate & even longer-time WFMU listener Steve (you really should meet him this summer on your way to or from the lake house) had another werewolf morning this morning.
  8:53am doca:

hello ken and fellow listeners.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55am -Ken:

Hi all - f0f0.. I'd rather have you here in real time rather than a cut and paste version of yourself.
  8:56am Listener Robert:

Where would "werewolf" fit on that chart? Implausible and probably TMI. What it is, he writhes in pain in bed (last time he dreamed he was physically xformed into something bad), thumps the floor with his foot, sweats the bed, and is in a fugue state for an hour or 2 as he slowly wakes up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59am cory:

get well soon ken!
  9:00am weiterso:

gute Besserung to you Ken!
  9:00am doca:

Ok, Ken. No problem.

I know it is a re-run but could you please start the show playing The Fall followed by, I don't know. Gnod? And then if you play Hawkwind after it, it would make my day!

  9:03am Listener Robert:

This morning not only a wolf, but also Donald Duck, was "in there" with Steve.
  9:04am F♋F♋ (:

If Gnod is next, could you please play 'Vision of Load'? Hawkwind's 'Motorhead' would be great too!

Maybe we can suggest some cures for Ken's rockin' pneumonia/boojie-woojie flu
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15am -Ken:

Its nice to just focus on the playlist, GIFs and music - I never noticed that fiddle on this Hawkwind tune before! Who's Lemmy's fiddler?
  9:16am Polyus:

That sounds like a synth through my crappy earbud, not a fiddle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18am -Ken:

You should hear youself sometimes Polyus. That was a fiddle all right. Played by Simon House apparently.
  9:18am F♋F♋ (:

great start to the show. was just thinking how the last song sounded very much like Beefheart, and then The Captain comes on next. YAY
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21am -Ken:

Thanks Jon, I've been working on that segue for, oh, like three and a half years! Glad it came out so well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21am Rich in Washington:

The A side, Kings of Speed, also has fiddlin' on it. But to my ears, it sounds like Motorhead has sax buried in the mix. Did Hawkwind have a sax player?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22am Asheville Jon:

it did indeed Ken!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22am -Ken:

Yep Rich.Nik Turner played sax for them
  9:23am Polyus:

Are single-tone guitar solos eligible as BEST GUITAR SOLO contenders ?

Hi Jake - Torbjorn, yes! Some of my favorite guitar solos are one note solos
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 9:33am Planet Tyler:

Hi Ken! Sorry to hear you're sick. Why not just puke? Go for it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34am -Ken:

Thanks Tyler. I got a little thang called Emetophobia.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 9:36am Lizardner Dave:

Feel better soon Ken.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 9:36am Planet Tyler:

@Ken, I totally understand - I used to have it. It's okay though, loss of bodily control won't kill ya, I can attest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38am -Ken:

Tyler, how do I know if I lose control that I wont also turn into a Werewolf like Robert's pal? That's the main thing that concerns me.
  9:38am Dictionary alert:

Emetophobia is a phobia that causes overwhelming, intense anxiety pertaining to vomiting. This specific phobia can also include subcategories of what causes the anxiety, including a fear of vomiting in public, a fear of seeing vomit, a fear of watching the action of vomiting or fear of being nauseated.
  9:38am Sam:

You gotta throw up, just get it all out of there. Think how good you'll feel afterwards. Just like after a massive dump.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39am Prodigal Listener:

Ken, may you and your little black heart feel better!
  9:39am Sam:

I guarantee you'll instantly feel better
  9:39am Clïff in Prägůe:

Best guitar solo - Brian Eno, The True Wheel
Best one-note guitar solo - King Crimson, Starless
Best overindulgent guitar solo - Yes, The Gates of Delirium
  9:40am F♋F♋ (:

Not to be confused with empeethreephobia.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40am -Ken:

Dictionary Alert, I got none of the subcategorie problems. Just a problem with the idea of ME having to let it go.

Thank you Cliff!!

Guitar solos: Mick Ronson's intro to "All the Young Dudes", Brian May at the end of "Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon, and (conventional though it is to say), Jimi Hendrix on "Are You Experienced". Joke Answer: Arlo Guthrie on "Alice's Restaurant", though if there's a recording of him or anyone else covering his da's "Old Man Trump"....

@coelacanth∅ - for the longest time. I thought Dan Ingram's jingle was saying "Getting Rum" instead of "Dan Igram" and I thought it was an exortation to drink heavily which I didnt understamd yet as I was too young but I went along with it anyway.
  11:14am jan:

@Ken: somehow I missed listening to Shepherd during the years I listened to Ingram... I was familiar with him but I'm not even sure when his time slot was. For me, Ingram was like your show, I was loathe to miss it, and it was my favorite activity after school. Cousin Brucie was annoying, but somehow a part of the culture of adolescence that I did not give up on until the advent of WNEW-FM. Which brings us to decades of WFMU and your reign.

Solos - sorry if these are a bit square.

Three solos from G. Harrison are faves.
"Day after Day" by Badfinger (prod. by Harrison)
"My Sweet Lord"
"Baby's in Black" by the Beatles. This always sounds like George dropped his guitar or something and is trying to get it working again during the solo.

Favorite minimalist solo: "Don't Worry Baby" by the Beach Boys. Two iterations of I-II-V chords and nothing else.

"Statesboro Blues" by the Allman Brothers. D. Allman casually starts off the song with a killer solo, and then follows up with a lick that he plays after the first "Woke up this morning, had them Statesboro Blues" lyric that has given me the frisson for 40 years.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50am Rich in Washington:

Although, I must confess, when I was a teenager, I had a job at a shitty restaurant, which also had this crappy lounge frequented by shitkickers, and it was my duty to go and clean said lounge every Sunday morning, clean the puke out of the men's room, pick discarded lemon wedges out of the booth's naugahyde cushions, etc.
The jukebox had a lot of Doors sides hidden in them in the collection of unlisted 45s that the jukebox man hid in there with all the horrible country singles. Only the bartender, barmaids and I knew about the secret list.
So, the Doors were sort of my savior. I could put on Light My Fire really loud and clean before the Hillbillies came in for their hair of the dog.
