' Emitt Lynn Rhodes (February 25, 1950 - July 18, 2020) was an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and recording engineer. Rhodes began his career in musical ensembles The Palace Guard as the group's drummer before joining The Merry-Go-Round as a multi-instrumentalist. '

Hi @Wendy! Sherri and i were just enjoying some delicious cheese from that same collection that you/we sent to the station a few weeks ago.
  6:38pm Jett:

Donna Gaines (Summer) does a great version of "Wasserman" (Aquarius) on the German version of Hair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Handy Haversack:

Kate directed Hair once and was very happy to hear "the cutest song ever written."

november 2010...did anyone see the 40th Anniversary Tribute to All Things Must Pass by The Universal Thump at the Bell House? it was pretty great.

If it´s real hot, man buns are okay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm Therese:

@chresti- Yes, the man bun rule is suspended during heat waves. Just like the rule that shorts are for children.

hey therese; i'm your skeleton these days! carol takes over for sharp veins thru the night

Jeffrey! I caught the tail end of your show yesterday. Loved the Courtney Marie Andrews track you ended with.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Therese:

OLIVIA! Thank you for being my skeleton!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm McGroovey:

I do believe in hair freedom, but I would be suspicious of a guy my daughter brought home if he had a man-bun.

(Or a mullet, or a buzz with "bitch" shaved into the side -- each for different reasons.)

You are a good dad, @McGroovey.

Reasoning is sound, McGroovey. And TDK60!

Thanks, Olivia!

Just went out to take out the trash. my neighbor was outside almost completely naked, it wasn't a very pretty site.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm coelacanth∅:

TDK last night i came home and my housemate's latest conquest had just finished giving him braided pigtails
  7:13pm Jett:

Olivia is doing the thankless work, but very much appreciated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Therese:

@coelacanth- your housemate may be possessed by the Ghost of Shannon Hoon.
  7:14pm ?:

This is pretty.I like it. But now play I Know You Rider by the Grateful Dead, just so we can hear it again, but less spacy.
  7:15pm Jett:

Yeah! Guilded Splinters!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm McGroovey:

I just put this Rose City Band in my Bandcamp cart. No LPs left, sadly.

I guess it was EFD who played it a couple times recently (with its lead-in ">" track).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm coelacanth∅:

Therese i had to look that up.
took a while to find a picture of him with pigtails
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Therese:

But you did find one, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm coelacanth∅:

i did! with a knit hat on but pigtails coming out of it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm McGroovey:

I guess white-guy-with-cornrows might be on my Suspicious list, too.

Again, each for different reasons. Though man-bun and white-guy-with-cornrows are in the same general region of suspicion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm coelacanth∅:

...and scrolled up to see where the pigtails came from.
manbuns.
i feel i should defend some manbun wearers who were convinced to have a manbun by a girlfriend with terrible taste or pretentious intentions.
  7:25pm phat:

I just read a Shannon Hoon joke. My life is much improved.
  7:28pm phat:

Thank you for the Gil Scott-Heron
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm chresti:

I mostly see manbuns worn by cooks, which makes sense. I always think of Samurai when I see a manbun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm McGroovey:

4 more years of THIS?!?

Gil Scott-Heron seems typical again, with a few detail edits.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Tome:

Wonderful Show Therese !<>!
Avatar 7:32pm TDK60:

..right Therese, I saw that, didn't even know the Rizzo statue was there, before, but good riddance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm coelacanth∅:

chresti when i see a cook or sushi chef with a manbun i never cringe
  7:34pm Zephyr:

After tonight methinks Therese is FMU’s best dj.
Avatar 7:34pm TDK60:

I don't care about manbuns. But with 1890s handlebar mustaches, I kinda giggle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Handy Haversack:

That Gil Scott-Heron is fantastic. Thanks, Therese!
Avatar 7:36pm TDK60:

..have to agree Handy, that Gil was hot. So was the Dr. before; that album is tops.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Therese:

@TDK60- There's intent behind handlebar mustaches. Man buns tend to be born of laziness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm coelacanth∅:

i'm acquainted with 2 (unrelated) people with handlebar mustaches!
  7:37pm Jett:

It's so sad that Emitt Rhodes has passed away. A big favorite of mine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm McGroovey:

I don't know what kind of suspicious prejudice I should develop about handlebar mustaches, but I do feel like I should. I've never personally interacted with a Handlebar Guy, so I don't have enough information.
  7:38pm Steve Harsh:

GBV!
Avatar 7:38pm TDK60:

Aw folks, I actually don't much care what folks look like. At all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm coelacanth∅:

i should think that a dude with a handlebar mustache would know before choosing that that it'd get some giggles, and even like knowing that. maybe doing for that main reason.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm McGroovey:

I used to buy everything by GBV, until I realized there was too much to listen to already, and three more albums and 6 singles had come out in the past three months. That was, like, 15 years ago.

And I went the the GBV show at White Eagle Hall, and I enjoyed it, but at the two-hour mark is heard enough, and had to bail.
Avatar 7:42pm TDK60:

Guys who dress like the Stones in 1966 make me smirk. They smirk at /me/ so..
  7:43pm phat:

@McGroovey handlebar guys are to be avoided.
  7:44pm kev:

clap your hands great stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm McGroovey:

At the two-hour mark I'D heard enough
  7:45pm Doobois:

This sounds fantastic! Thanks, Therese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm McGroovey:

@phat so far, I have avoided them, though not intentionally. I guess those guys and I just travel in different circles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Yes:

  7:47pm Zach1028:

@Therese You are on fire tonight!

How dare they try to end this beauty! Peace : )
  7:49pm Zach1028:

One of the best shows that I have ever seen was a tiny show that Beck put on with just him and an acoustic guitar at Avery Fisher Hall for just 200 people during the Sea Change tour. Just outstanding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm chresti:

TDK60, same here, as long as they arent wearing strong cheap cologne..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm coelacanth∅:

so let's fight against police brutality and racism, and dudes with handlebar mustaches and dudes with manbuns that aren't preparing food.
got it.
Avatar 7:50pm HexFamChan:

This is one to jam along to on whatever instruments you have
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Therese:

@Zach1028- on the flip side of that, I saw Beck at Radio City Music Hall during his "Midnite Vultures" tour and it was completely over the top and fabulous. Even from the cheap seats.
  7:51pm phat:

Hoodoo Gurus!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm McGroovey:

@phat have you suffered a handlebar-mustache-associated trauma? We're here for you, of course.
  7:53pm phat:

@Therese I believe that was the first tour of his I saw as well. Atari Teenage Riot and The Roots opened. Crazy show.
  7:54pm phat:

@McGroovey college town and lots of hip barbers and young men who have discovered Hegel

Hoodoo Gurus: I've liked every song I've heard (passively) by them, and yet I've never gotten around to listening to them on purpose.

Thanks Therese that was great, thanks Olivia.
Avatar 7:55pm TDK60:

I had a pause when I first collided with lollipop sucking raver at a partee in '98. He had on funny round bracelets. Then, I just said, "aw, why not?"
  7:56pm Zach1028:

@Jett Emitt Rhodes RIP. This is so sad! His first album was essentially a perfect album, just unbelievable.

HG were scheduled to be in US this fall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm McGroovey:

@phat oh, I was in college in the eighties. I'd have to think about what annoying style choices Hegel Guy would have sported in the eighties.
  7:57pm Mike H:

Great set!
  7:57pm Jett:

You can stand close to me whenever you want. @Therese Your friendship is that important to me. Have a wonderful week, be safe!
