@Handy @Steveo Wondering if MLB will go the route of NASCAR and broadcast a few computer games for our entertainment. The NASCAR thing went swimmingly -- a lot of fun for the serious fan and a good opportunity to pull in the curious. Was the top-trending topic on Twitter at one point yesterday.

It's great to see those old locker room celebrations where the player are actually drinking Bud out of a can as opposed to spraying Champagne everywhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm ParUbi:

@Steveo-- I heard the song, "I don't want to be a one man band" which wasn't terrible.
  12:45pm Mark in Toronto:

Joe, you are killing it today (no, back then). How about last week the oldest show you can dig up, just to hear the difference (between then and now?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm steveo:

i'm not sure which one that was; i'm glad you're reoriented, though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm mariano:

Be interesting to compile songs about famous women in history. There's Ann Boleyn, then, let's see... Television's Venus de Milo, John Cale's Helen of Troy. Anyone know any others?

Off the top of my head, Laughner's "Sylvia Plath", Nick Lowe's "Marie Provost", Stones' "Claudine", and a gazillion songs that reference Marilyn Monroe.

True about Thatcher: Elvis Costello's "Tramp the Dirt Down", probably a few by the Exploited. Ooh: Sun City Girls' "Nancy Reagan".

What a week (whew!).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm Spankyflop:

I guess the 2020 record fair is a no go, huh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm Handy Haversack:

10/1/18, I think, @Andy. Terrified to look back and see what lame things I ended up doing that week. But I guess these underwear weren't going to get drunk and pass out in themselves!
  1:28pm Andy:

Aha! Got it. Thank you! “if you're just joining us this is an archived show from 2018, so none of this stuff I am yammering about is happening.”
Avatar 1:28pm Joe B:

the record fair has been cancelled unfortunately

This show is from 10/1/18? I know I was listening live to that show. I severely strained my hamstring on my morning run that day, and had to limp/hop home. Then, I had to drive to a client in Riverside, CA. My leg hurt so bad, I wanted to curl up on the floor of their office and cry. And I couldn’t get a cup of coffee anywhere in Riverside, so that sucked too.

Another sadly apprapo song.
  1:59pm Cubicle Carl:

@ Mr. Pumpy re:autotune - yes I heard that. Wasn’t sure if it was autotune or just a digital artifact of my connection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm Mr. Pumpy:

@Carl...I don't know, but I didn't hear it affecting anything but the voice. I only caught the tail end of the song, so maybe it was done for effect at one point. It was a bit jarring for my taste...life goes on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm coelacanth∅:

i agree Mr.P. i heard that song from the kitchen and really liked it but then came in here and after a minute that sounded terrible.
the shame is i'd bet her real voice is great.

Handy that is great! do you know him?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm coelacanth∅:

Judy Henkse did the definitive version.
...the only good version i've ever heard. (out of maybe 6)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm mariano:

Speaking of the fortunes of Jefferson-affiliated singers, I saw a clip of them live from 2012 and Mickey Thomas was still belting out "Jane" like in the old days, same key, hitting all the high notes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Handy Haversack:

Came up on another board recently, @mariano. I have never actually met him, though my sisters met him several times. I was in good touch with his brother for quite a while, though less so lately. Their mom and my dad were really close when they were young -- her parents took in my dad for a while when he was orphaned.

But no, I don't really know him. I should reach out again.

@acid casualty: teaching me licks would be a waste of any talent's time!

So correct me if this old fart got this wrong buuut last.fm had 'Runaway' credited to the Jefferson Airplane. Uh nope. That I believe is the Jefferson Starship. Yo that Marty Balin though!

Thanks Joe i've heard that high flying bird then...and i just looked at my (385-song long) Neil Young playlist and sure enough it's on there, bookmarked but i forgot to go back to it.
that'll happen later today though.

  2:30pm JakeGould:

I just had to attend a videoconference meeting. Before it started everyone just talked about what it was like where they were. Then the meeting started. People couldn’t get anything working. Then we all decided to reschedule the meeting for “later” since there’s no point now.
  Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Confusionist:

Yeah the Airplane and Starship gave off different vibes. I loved the Airplane and just came of age a minute too late to see them though went to many Hot Tuna shows and seen Jefferson Starship at the Hollywood Sportatorium in Florida 1975. Thanks for playing this because there are many gaps in my musical knowledge and I was totally turned off to the Starship after 'Red Octopus' and 'Dragonfly'. Thought they were very lame. Perhaps. But now I know better. Heart rending stuff as well. So thanks Joe! That's why WFMU can never die! Always something to delight and inform!
  2:31pm JakeGould:

WFMU should host Zoom meetings discussing Jefferson Airplane/Starship.
Avatar 2:31pm βrian:

I've had one video conference so far. It went fine and I was glad I remembered to to tape over my laptop camera.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm coelacanth∅:

Confusionist to be honest volunteers is the cut-off for me. never heard anything by starship that wasn't boring at best and same goes for post-Balin airplane.
then there's the airplane album with Balin from the late 70s but it's mostly studio musicians so, predictably boring also. (even with Balin's beautiful voice)

Hey Joe and 3 chord stay in place work at home rockers.
  Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Confusionist:

I think we could both agree to the beautiousness of Marty Balin's voice. But there are many gems after the Volunteers album. Check out 'Eat Starch Mom' from the 'Long John Silver' album. I think it's a doozy!
And c'mon Joe. Can't get down with the live version of 'Feel So Good' from 'Thirty Seconds Over Winterland'. Loved tripping to that along with Floyd's 'Echoes. Ah. Good times!
  2:50pm schmitzzz:

not this triclops
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm coelacanth∅:

i expect you're correct about that, there must be gems on those 2 "last" airplane albums. put into a different setting -not surrounded by the beating a dead horse rest of the album material. i will explore again.
...but times were changing things and had -not just with Balin's departure. the world changed. much more boring arenarock coming fast down the road at that point.
