Interesting way to characterize the mentats. I remember their having resulted from a revulsion AGAINST machines (automated ones, at least); but did that result from an earlier REVOLT BY/OF machines?

Cl@m Digger, Melanie Thiel showed me how that works. The DJ wears headphones that carry the real time material going out, which is on a delay from what's coming off the record. The DJ is ALSO listening to it as it comes off the record. So when the DJ hears something that needs to be bleeped, the DJ memorizes the sequence of words around that, then listens to it via headphones as it goes out, and makes the cut at the appropriate time. if they're good, they can cut VERY close around it.

"First, it locks up a definite relationship between Billie Joe and the girl telling the story, the girl at the table. Second, the fact that Billie Joe was seen throwing something off the bridge – no matter what it was – provides a possible motivation as to why he jumped off the bridge the next day."

Hey David!
I've been listening sporadically this afternoon - some mad selections.
I did like SMK's monkey noise pick!
Avatar 11:54am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening and commenting, everyone, I'm glad you enjoyed today's Random Pull show. Next week: Music I have actually listened to before playing it. Have a great week, and stay tuned for 3 Chord Monte with Joe B.!

Thanks Joe! Take care.

Thanks Joe .. actually, for many of us -FMU is the place we find things we never heard before... (never bought a CD/never had a player or a pod for music) After listening to people play the same cassettes/music over and over in Lo don 80s.. Once back in NYC, only listened to NEWS and FMU (KCR a bit ...) Thanks again!!!!

The only thing that leavens the pain of Joe #1's departure is that you get Joe #2!

Thanks for the randomness, Joe. Just a reminder DJ Irene Trudel is returning with a regular show, at noon, on the Give The Drummer Radio stream.

@DiL it was the chapter in which Duke Leto keeps repeating (in italics) ‘they have tried to take the life of my son’ which cheesed me off; next time I’ll skip that chapter. I have many fond
Memories of reading the book circa 1979 though.
