Hi all! Great to hear the show now..."sophisticated propaganda" perfect lyrics for these crazy Trump times...although that's giving him too much credit because his propaganda isn't even sophisticated! ha
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Hey hey, JJ! Greetings and gratitude to all the WFMU folx keeoing things rolling. Hi, all!

Hello JJ!

yeah, the not-terribly-deep state or something.

Lockdown challenge of the day: My landlord notified me a plumber has to enter my apartment tomorrow to check for a leak that's supposedly leaking into the unit below, although I don't see anything. Hope the plumber will wear protective gear, but can't count on it. I guess I can only protect myself and hope for the best!
  9:22pm Bradly:

How's everyone else holding up?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm jj.:

eek, sorry to hear that. literally the same thing happened at studio J a few weeks ago, though the apartment above & it was definitely audible. it went fine, but still stressful. solidarity!
  9:24pm Bradly:

Ah, sorry to hear...yes solidarity! Glad you got through it okay.
  9:25pm JakeGould:

@Bradley: Old or new building? In old NYC boilings pipes “sweat” a lot if the airspace is closed up and then end up leaking.

My childhood tenement dump had a partial bathroom ceiling collapse because of that. My dad was in the shower when it happened. Oh joy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm melinda:

hi all
  9:28pm Bradly:

@Jake Very old and yeah, the pipes are old too. Thanks for explaining. Sorry to hear about your dad and the ceiling in your old place!
  9:30pm Bradly:

Digging a lot of this new music Jesse...very calming.
Avatar 9:33pm RMR:

Sweet segues, as always.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm jj.:

hey RMR, thanks!
Avatar 9:38pm RMR:

Thank YOU. Always can count on jj!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:39pm Yes:

hello JJ and everyone. this lewsberg track is soothing
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:40pm sboston:

I agree with @Yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm jj.:

and likewise, even with the squalls of feedback that started exactly as @Yes's comment appeared on my screen!
Avatar 9:41pm RMR:

Some squalls are soothing. I think Reed said that.
Avatar 9:44pm RMR:

And Neil Young, too, I'm sure. Fantastic placement.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Yes:

ive never heard the restless before. excellent
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm jj.:

i think this is the same take that's on "freedom" with the exception of the noise breaks that are about to drop.
Avatar 9:48pm hairyhood:

fuck yeah
  9:48pm wowee:

this is insanely heavy. did a double take to make sure I was hearing correctly. I was. fuuuck

Sounding great Jesse!

Studio J coming in loud and clear tonight. Solid internet connection.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Nardo:

Hey Jesse. Enjoyed seeing you on the Dead stream this past Friday.
  10:04pm Ignore Function:

I was supposed to see Josh Abrahms this week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm jj.:

i was going to say i was supposed to see him this week, too, but that was a month ago!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm jj.:

thanks for tuning in on friday, @nardo. that was fun & weird in the best way.
Avatar 10:08pm mb:

Howdy folks. I heard Arkestra talk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm jj.:

yeah! i caught a beautiful streamed set last night by jupiter blue, which is tara middleton & dm hotep from the current arkestra, playing beautiful electronics/guitar/vocals space jazz. hope to play some of it on a future show.
Avatar 10:15pm mb:

Oh nice, jj. She has quite a presence. Her and whoever that youngster is who dances with them from time to time are show stealers.
Avatar 10:16pm RMR:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm jj.:

some of my first favorite sun ra involved june tyson, so it's amazing to not ony hear someone else in that "chair" of the arkestra but taking it to the next level.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm zzz:

wow this arlo guthrie was really cool. i know like a handful of the ‘hits’ but that sounded unlike (and better) than all of them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm jj.:

yeah, it's about as freaky-folky as arlo got, i think. really random live album with a few originals that never appeared anywhere else, including that, as well as an alternate version of alice's restaurant that literally doesn't make any sense. it's like a stoned text-bot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm zzz:

hilarious. huge fan of alice’s of course so will seek that out.
  10:26pm Bradly:

yeah, really liked that Arlo song and don't get into his music that much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm jj.:

i grew up on alice (can probably quote it still) & saw a bunch of arlo shows growing up, and can say with authority that he achieves a a really remarkable non-linearity on that live release. i've even gone looking for live tapes from that era that might catch more of that vibe, but have never found any.
  10:31pm Bradly:

That's cool you grew up on him and saw him live!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm zzz:

been trying to introduce alice’s to my young daughter as a fun musicy shary thxgiving thing we can do but have hesitated with some of the ... questionable aspects ?? maybe the twisted stoney version is our solution hah
  10:32pm JakeGould:

Nice vibe right now.
  10:35pm rw:

Good evening! Thanks Jesse for making the trek to Studio J and playing music for everyone.
  10:36pm Carmichael:

Heya Jesse and physically distanced. No social distancing here.
  10:36pm JakeGould:

@rw: Hey! How you? Remember when I was tallying you about the Paycheck Protection thing? Hahahahahaahahh! What a joke…

Hope you are doing well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm deesat:

hello frow show, i like you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm jj.:

alas @zzz, the twisted stony version no longer has anything to do with thanksgiving! is the original that questionable?
Avatar 10:41pm RMR:

Just about littering. No harm there. Give it a go.
  10:43pm rw:

Jake! Yeah, I started looking in to that stuff and filling out the forms and then gave up. I'm doing fine. Hope you're hanging in there yourself!
Avatar 10:44pm RMR:

And just like that, Dump appears like magic in Studio J.
  10:46pm JakeGould:

@rw: Yeah, after I posted that I read the details and “small businesses” with 500 employees or less. LOLSTFU! That means that real small businesses need to get to the back of the line.
Avatar 10:48pm RMR:

Wow. This is gold. Where did you find this Gene Clark?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm zzz:

ehh, agree nothing really questionable in terms of like 99% of the alice’s song/story, (in fact 99% of it i’d love her to hear) just the tidbit at the end when it gets to talking about two folks singing it together yadda yadda..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm jj.:

found the gene clark on the dimeadozen bittorrent site!
Avatar 10:50pm RMR:

Very nice and warm recording. Feel the whole room. Thanks, Jesse!
Avatar 10:50pm hairyhood:

nice find

Yay, Karen Dalton!

Hey everyone, hi Jesse
Avatar 10:58pm Matt from the future:

Holy reverb, Batman!
  11:01pm Carmichael:

Studio J = bathroom??
Avatar 11:01pm ParUbi:

Is the reverb an effect or the acoustics of your space? That's one big bathroom!
Avatar 11:04pm Matt from the future:

You've got shades of Pauline Oliveros's Deep Listening going on there.
  11:06pm Bradly:

Wow, this an awesome version of Yellow Submarine haha
Avatar 11:06pm RMR:

Pretty much the definitive take right there.
  11:07pm Bradly:

Nice production
Avatar 11:07pm Matt from the future:

I hope you're including the two minute's silent meditation at the end of this track.
  11:08pm Bradly:

Glad I'm wearing headphones

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Ken From Hyde Park:

A neat complement to this might be "Green Tambourine." It even rhymes.
  11:14pm Dean:

*Love* NPR! I have two or three of his albums, and I wish more would appear on WFMU.

(I've never listened to a record while stoned, because I don't believe one can in fact be stoned.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm jj.:

i don't listen to records, i am records, as someone once said.
  11:29pm Bradly:

Dean, you sound stoned to me ha
Avatar 11:30pm RMR:

Is the basement way House of Leaves larger now?
Avatar 11:31pm ParUbi:

(why is the floor)
Avatar 11:31pm Matt from the future:

That's definitely a stoned insight, Bradly.
  11:42pm Dean:

Fans of Nels, hunt out the three Cryptogramophone tributes to his friend and colleague Eric Von Essen. He's not on every track, but the crew who honored Von Essen are amazing. Volume 1, for instance: https://www.discogs.com/Various-The-Music-Of-Eric-Von-Essen-Volume-I/release/443632
